Oh man, if I'd known it was your birthday I would've drugged Chris Hemsworth, dressed him up in his Ragnarok gladiator outfit and left him at your place to do as you will.

It's Chris Evans, but I wouldn't kick Chris Hemsworth out of my bedroom by any means.

Also, my birthday is tomorrow, so there is still time for all of these things.

Well of course my clothes are inside out. I mean really...

Landed in San Francisco. I'm in the right time zone at least.

Here's hoping the gate for the Seattle flight isn't too far away.

Also, this is a fair trade.

Edit: Although conscious and willing is... erm... very much preferable.

Ooh. The gates are right next to each other. And so is the bar.

This is a tiny little puddle jumper of a plane. But sometimes I like those better. Okay - should finally be off to Seattle!

Hey, "alive" is good enough for some of us.

I mean, a big part of it is his charming, easy-going, and open-minded demeanor. So, without that, you're pretty much just left with abs.

Think you'd have room for a tiefling gunslinger (musket master)/slayer (sniper)?
I don't think that angle has been suited yet but check the Submissions Avatar put together by Gobo Horde. It has all Submissions up to date to double check if someone submitted anything similar. ;-)
I'm starting to realize that as of right now, I don't even have time to make a character, much less join another PbP, so I don't think I'm going to be able to play in your Magnificent Seven game. Let me know if anyone drops out, though.

No worries. Will do!

Yeah I need to keep my games to a reasonable level. I'd really like to do a Z-Day reboot, but I'm not taking on any commitments until my job sitch is squared away.

I'd honestly lean more toward "finish Z-Day" than "Z-Day reboot."

Week 3 out of 26 finished. *yawn*

I am proud of you for doing this. I know it is rough but I think it will be worth it, Drjk.


Meh, it's money for bare survival, but when it'll end I will be in no better position than I was before...

Well, maybe being used to getting up early whole week before my more typical sleep schedule kicks in in a few weeks.

I always loved puddle jumpers. Used to take them between Philly and Norfolk back in the day. The wife hated them, but luckily she did not have to take them as often.

Great first full day of gaming! Played the Assimilation Strain with Neil Spicer, then Felicar's Whirlpool with Todd Stewart. Today I have a Planescape game, and several seminars. Then it is time for the banquet.

I understand your point, but I don't know Vancouver or what Kreully's endgame was.

I have a vision of what I want to do , and trying to finish the original Z-Day would be like writing a Dune novel after Frank Herbert died. It can be done, but SHOULD it be done?

John hates them, too. He gets claustrophobic.

I prefer them because there are fewer people and somehow always seem to be less of a circus of humanity.

We were freezing in the back of a puddlejumper flight when a hand popped through the cockpit curtains, waved around for a few seconds, and withdrew. The heat came on a moment later. I love them for their sophisticated thermostats.

I also love the giant phone-book maps the pilots have between their seats so they don't get lost.

I love the tiny airports at the end, where the pilots themselves pull the luggage out of the plane and set it on the tarmac for you to pick up.

At times, though, I have wished they had a bathroom of any kind.

Enjoy your birthday banquet, angel.

To be fair, I am using the term loosely. It was a commuter jet.


I was on a miniconvention Smokon today (=Dragon-con).

Saw some friends, ate overpriced pasta at nearby restaurant, visited two lectures by friends, and returned home.


Monday, I'll raise a can of Budweiser to the memory of Preston Scott Gardner. Preston was a Scout in E Troop, 2 / 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment who died in early 1990 in a training accident at Graffenwehr, Germany. I'll spare everyone here the exact details of his passing. Once I've finished my can, I'll pour out another to honor his sacrifice during peacetime. Here's his death record.


I will be working on Monday (memorial Day) so I took the family to the University pool this morning for a couple of hours, (The water was too cold. It has been raining here lately, But we had fun anyway) And then I grilled steaks and chicken wings, stuffed shrooms (Mushrooms with Cajun Sausage) and corn on the cob.

Today was my Memorial Day fun. :)

ANnnnnd,... back to work on Sunday. ;P


Wishing I was at Paizocon!

Everyone have fun so I can live it vicariously! :D

The word is "eke" as in "eke out." It's not eek. One doesn't eek out a living unless, perhaps, one is a mouse.

Eke.

Eke.

Eke.

Thanks, I feel better now.

Disclaimer: this is unrelated to anything anybody here has posted. I just hit my limit of internet mistakes today.

Hah. Was wondering who said eke upthread!


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Nah, nobody here.

It was on the Internet. In a comment.

I know, I know: never read the comments. Don't know what I was thinking.


Just heard on the news that Greg Allman, from the Allman Brothers band, has died.

Yes he did. He'd been sick with different ailments for a few years.

You could always ask him for his notes. I'd rather have narrative closure than continuity of authorship any day of the week.


I am much less excited about Starfinder than I should be. Maybe it's because I dropped a bundle on the Traveller Kickstarter.

I was never interested in Spelljammer back in the 2e days of yore and I have no interest in Starfinder. While I'm sure it'll be a fine game and many will really get into it, if I want to play a space game I'll drag up some warm bodies to play Star Trek or Star Wars.

Have hated them ever since i went from Pheonix to Flagstaff (7000 ft up) in an unpressurized one. Felt like my ears were bleeding.

Ok, I've never been to Portillos before, but they just opened one here in town and the crew who came to hire and train everyone has been staying at my hotel and they are A%%~!$$S!! So I am on a personal boycott of the chain.

No, THIS is a trap.

Good morning, by the way.

I've been moderately interested in Starfinder. I've always liked fantasy better than science fiction, but I think this one can be really cool.
