DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Yeah, my apologies. Oh, Shadow I did finally see your note about Vampire XP. Just an FYI, you can always text me or write me at spamreef {at} hotmail (dot) com if there is info. With this new interface I never see PMs. I think you sent that in April

Folks, I am cautiously optimistic that I can get a battle set up this weekend. Despite not posting, I did some prep work, and even a bit of battle mapping. Cross your fingers and we’ll see what happens

Thank you everyone for your patience

It really was!

Sorry I was so quiet afterwards, work really got NUTS(and still is!), but I look forward to doing it again.

Oh I’ll be back this Fall. I can’t stay away anymore. NYC calls to me. I’m kinda thinking I might try for a job in the area

Hey I'm buying him drinks Friday, I hope.

Lord knows I could use one.

That was a hell of a Friday!

Great to see you and CH. I really hope to get the scratch together for another sojourn to my spiritual home.

Good. Very busy with the DC life.

Good to see you. Can’t believe it’s been two years since we went to that con up by your house.

We've got a whole bunch of magic arrows, and our ranged people have guns.

Well, my suggestion is to take those ensorcelled arrows to one of the gunsmiths in the Gear Run District and they’ll melt the arrowheads into bullets for you.

Thanks for the shout out Cal. Just for the record, I asked that the Treefort be shuttered. Just time for me to close up shop in the OTD and concentrate on other matters. Good to see you have an alternative already set up, best of luck and happy holidays!

Meh. Still better healthcare than VA

Your kitteh is most lovely

Sorry to hear about your thanksgiving. But on the plus side, the real crisis was averted. Quick thinking :)

I’m just happy that

A) I don’t work in retail anymore so I am not inundated with eight decades of cheesy Christmas songs

B) I get some time to spend with family

C) I’m at the point in my life where I am divesting myself of possessions, so Yule is more about the people and happy times.

Yup, and just like the Ring falling into Bilbo’s hand from Gollum, that random encounter was actually part of a larger plan.

Yeah I’ve been trying to figure out the meta narrative for so many years now. Everyone has so many possibilities in my toolbox, but Ferissirion has been around since the beginning of the game almost. I think this is the first concrete evidence that Karrin has gotten that Ferissirion is more than just a magical weapon.

Happy Friday Treeforters!

I hope all is well, and keep fighting the good fight!

Always remember: how you look at life is how life becomes. Sounds trite, but many real things do.

So try injecting a little positivity into your mind. You’d be surprised what a difference it makes.

I wouldn’t put it past him to pre-record several of the upcoming movies Easter eggs. His passing, although sad, was not entirely unexpected. He had a damn good run. Excelsior

Slightly tipsy text messages to Freehold this week:

“I’m cheating on you”
“By eating poutine”
“But it’s by myself, so it’s more like masturbation”

He was amused.

Air Canada announced they were setting up a temporary pop-up poutine stand set up in DuPont Circle to benefit a charity. I’m sorely tempted to masturbate the hell out of it.

Work is brutal indeed. I am playing game ketchup myself and failing, but I’ll keep an eye out on this. Got a long weekend ahead and this veteran is going home, so if you post up and I don’t reply quickly that’s why.

Hope your work burden gets lighter. I’m playing courier to the courthouse today,so not a lot of skull sweat, but some shoe leather involved. Wish me luck.

Taking tomorrow off and traveling to Charlotte NC to visit a friend. Enjoy your weekend

Strange days we live in

It’s hard to be living in a time historians will endlessly dissect in future university lectures.

I’m glad you were not involved in the tragedy, John

Do you have your dimensional anchor all set?

Yeah it’s a shame when the crowds descend on the truly beautiful places and drive out the folks that grew up there. Most born and bred Cape Codders live in Florida or Georgia now. Their children won’t be Cape Codders. In fact, I’m certain that within the next few decades there won’t be any working-class people on Cape Cod period. The temptation to sell the ancestral land for big bucks and go live somewhere with a much easier cost of living ratio will be too much. I know I’ll never be back to live there.

The coat check girl smiles at Karrin. It is a flat professional thing, promising friendliness but painted on

“I assure you, madame, your axe will be safe here. We are professionals “

She reaches out a hand, and Ferissirion growls. It’s a deep, rumbling thing, full of lupine menace. Everyone who hears it gets a hindbrain shiver from their inner proto-mammalian ancestor

“Well, perhaps if we have a pledge of non-violence?” The girl says, glancing at the gnoll in the suit, who nods

Hey it happens. You’re bearing a heavy load. That’s what friends are for, to listen

Happy Saturday folks.

Finishing up my exercise and steeling myself for a tux fitting.

My mantra now is ‘Fun takes effort ‘. I used to have a bad attitude about putting in the effort to make things happen. Things were difficult, too far, I might not get in. Fnck that. Take the extra effort, spend the grocery money, take the thre-hour drive, take a chance a ticket comes up at the box office. Lots do.

Example: Sunday I’d like nothing better than be a slug on my couch the entire day. But, it’s a day I’ll never have back. Is being some sort of sessile creature going to do anything for me long run? So, I’ve made up my mind, I’m going to Amish country in PA. Maybe see some leaves. Kick around, buy a soft pretzel and a funnel cake. Six hours driving, but who cares? I’ll at least remember the weekend, rather than having a forgotten day. One of my limited days on this planet. We only get so many.

Good morning Treeforters!

Guess what I’m doing? Lol

Had an amazing night last night with the spontaneous reformation of the 2009 FAWTL crew on an alternate social media platform. So many old pals.

Hey, I did the security gig for three years. Get some classes. Onwards and upwards it’s never too late. I’m living proof.

Ten minutes of abs to go

Benching went off without a hitch. Thank the dark gods

Hard to believe I used to warm up with 225. Aging is a b+%*+.

That kinda stuff doesn’t bother me. I might get bored, but I can always figure out something fun to do. Besides, I need a tux pic

Ooh. What kind of fancy event, Patrick?

Some formal ball. I’m being asked as s friend, but it’s still pretty cool


1 person marked this as a favorite.

But, still I can’t complain. I’m healthy, employed , with a pretty stable brain chemistry and good future prospects. I even got asked out on a date yesterday!


1 person marked this as a favorite.

But yeah, I wouldn’t mind trying wealthy for a bit. Or maybe retirement fund. That would be nice.

Yet, Ive been blessed, (it's my belief system) ;) that while I've never had EXTRA money, like,... ever. >_<
I also have never dug us so far into a hole that I couldn't dig our way out of again.

Seems like every time I actually (thought) I have extra money, That was when an emergency expense occurred. (Car repair, illness, whatever) So I choose to believe that I am being taken care of. :)

Although, Sometimes I DO feel like Tevya from "Fiddler on the Roof"

"Would it be such an awful thing, if I were a wealthy Man?!?" ;)

Indeed. I try to remember that had I not just gotten a promotion, this new exhaust would be a much more serious situation. In the words of Mick Jagger

But if you try sometime
You just might find
You get what you need

Thursday I’m headed off to a theater screening of Phantasm, with a Q&A with the director afterwards. The Greater DC area has such wonderful events!
