Cook something anyway, it's Christmas, no one's gonna complain about extra food at Christmas. :-)

My wife likes to bring a giant plate of assorted cookies when everything is claimed (Which happens a lot, in account of not being on Facebook).

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year all, I am heading home from a half day at work

Well that was entertaining. Woman on the subway gets all pissed off about how the train is moving and screams at the operator over the intercom, calling him a horrible driver, and he's all like "This thing's on autopilot, ma'am" and "You need to get off at the next stop". She gets more pissed, and ends up escorted off the train by two Muni employees.

Adding on to last night's devastation, Pea Bear done, Tiny T-Rex essentially done, I think the General has finished with me, all that's left is the General, but I'm not worried, I'm great at shopping for her. :-)

By jove I think Pea Bear gave me the slip, we're at work, where my kids are well known (and adored) by all the employees, so she pretty much gets to go as she pleases, which is fine, except the General has tasked to keep them close.. which I've now failed at.

My favorite is getting rained on in the underground subway stations of New York. I just imagine the path that that water had to travel before it landed on my head, and that is enough to skeeve me out.

I had a game start this way. Well, it was in the drainage pipes that eventually led to the sewer from the underground lightningrail lines. The PC woke up alone, with nothing at all, and surrounded by gruesomely dead (that the water was mildly washing clean, for an exceedingly specific and eccentric definition of "clean"). And, of course, troperriffic as it was already, she had no idea who or where she was (the opening "scene" was a bunch of panicked and desperately asked questions, describing her outlooks and appearance demanded my immediate answers and promising (by implication) lingering consequences... consequences she had no way of understanding of even guessing... as she slowly came-to). Of course, the only other living thing was a mute girl unable to speak, and the watch showed up just as she woke...

One of the most politically intrigue-laden games we've ever run. So good.

Oh, and Merry Chistmas!

When I was living in Savannah and attending SCAD, most of the studio spaces there were f$~#ing awful about this. I remember at least once a week during the winter, the professor would have to stop class in order for us to scramble around the room placing garbage cans under the leaks and throwing trash bags over everyone's work so it wouldn't get wet.

And then there's my current job site--

For those of you who plan on building anything in the future, putting an apartment complex on top of a gravel-filled clay bowl on a hillside is a good way to have that apartment complex a) sink, crack, and buckle, b) flood regularly, and c) potentially get buried by the hillside collapsing on top of it.

There's a reason that we called it "The Lost City of Atlantis" during the months before the roof got finished.

My wife was accepted to SCAD, but her dad kinda forced her to stay in town and go to UNF. So, instead of being a traditional artist, like she wanted to be, she's now a graphic designer with steady work that she is not entirely fond of who does lots of art for fun.

...not too sure if she's happy about that or not.

Careful with that urban blessing. You might feel a compulsion to kill all of the mob bosses in the city.

I can tell you right now that I'd rather have steady work in a tangentially-related field than make 3 grand a year doing freelance work and make up the difference working 40 to 60 hours a week in an unrelated job that you hate.

In retrospect, I probably should have stayed in Savannah. The professors were mostly good, and there were a lot of cool people there. However, I was younger and angrier when I was there, and it didn't live up to my ridiculously high expectations. The final straw ended up being when SCAD lost its accreditation (I think they've gotten it back since, but it took a while). I was still under the impression that having a college degree (as opposed to a college education) mattered, so I transferred to my dad's alma mater, Syracuse University. And we all know how that turned out.

Well, if Savannah is anything like Tallahassee, it was good to get out if you want to make it as an artist.

Tallahassee, because it has FSU, FAM, and a couple other private schools, is a b**** to get a job fresh out of college, because the market is absolutely saturated with people looking for jobs, so college level work there goes for minimum wage - if you're lucky - and usually a 2+ year unpaid internship that ends in a minimum wage job.

I'm willing to bet finding work as an artist in a city with an extremely famous art school is pretty difficult...even more so than where you're at.

I'm pretty sure it's hard to find work of any kind in Syracuse.

I just got an epic recitation of all my shortcomings (real or imagined) delivered to me, bookended by her wishing me a merry Christmas and informing me that she missed me. Not sure how to approach it - it's either a demand for unconditional surrender or designed to open negotiations.

You joke, but the whole region has been hemorrhaging people and businesses for the past decade, and most of the newcomers to the area are students who stay after graduating college.

Madison is a flourishing college town lousy with cows and practically drowning in alcohol and liberal cliches (I say this as a liberal).

It sounds like most college towns, to me.

By the way, any other southern folks thinking about going to MegaCon in Orlando this year or has been in the past? I disliked DragonCon's crowds enough to ruin the whole experience, but MegaCon isn't a six hour drive to get to, and it isn't the number three in the US drawing a ridiculously huge crowd, so I'm considering it, but wonder if it's any good.

I enjoyed MegaCon when I went to it. It was fun, but your mileage may vary.

When were hipsters ever "minimalist"?

They're some of the most conspicuous consumers I've ever encountered. Takes money to be as " original" and "unique" as all of your peers.
