A long December, and there’s reason to believe maybe this year will be better than the last I can’t remember the last thing that you said as you were leavin’ now the days go by so fast and it’s one more day up in the canyon and it’s one more night in Hollywood if you think that I can be forgiven….I wish you would The smell of hospitals in winter and the feeling that its all a lot of oysters, but no pearls all at once you look across a crowded room to see the way that light attaches to a girl And it’s one more day up in the canyon and it’s one more night in Hollywood if you […]

I Beat The GRE. The End Guy Is Hard
By Dwip December 29, 2005 at 1:54 am Comments Off on I Beat The GRE. The End Guy Is Hard RSS Feed for this post

With a nod towards that classic bash quote. 650 Verbal, 590 Math, some unknown on Writing. Out of 800 for each one, 10 point intervals. So pretty much like the SAT. Speaking of which, back in the day when I took THAT, I got 640 verbal 580 math. So go figure. Bliss is a good movie, an SBI, and some popcorn. I’m not sure if Kingdom of Heaven is all that, though. I need to think about it some more. Shooting Nazis in CoD2 sure is fun. You may go now.

Information Processing

Many people, I expect, will be blogging about what they got for Christmas and the like, and/or shopping. Being efficient small forest animals, we’ll take care of that in short order: Christmas Presents Include: Clothes – lots. Because as fun as going naked in Oregon in winter is, well… Books – More. Terry Pratchett, Neal Stephenson, and assorted history for the win, if not the bookshelf space. Games – Call of Duty 2 is freaking awesome, but is 6(!) discs and takes 4 gigs of HD. Also an 8x CD drive, the requirements of which I only exceed by…5 times. Which is up from the 10 times I exceeded previously required 4x drives by. Because, you know, 8x was awesome […]

Being the season, and all…Happy Christmas, boys, girls, and squirrel aliens. Hope it was a good one. It’s turning out that way here. Far too many books to read, games to play, and clothes to wear for the first time since the early 90s. Wrapping Paper: $1 Fluxx: $12 “WTF!?” expression on parental faces while playing Fluxx: Priceless So, yeah. Peace on Earth, goodwill towards rabbits. But not Mansa. You’re next, after I deal with Izzy.

6 player Civ games are never going to be in my future again, I think. OTOH, Regina was funny tonight, and didn’t try to deny it this time, so: [21:15] TontoMarius: Well, do I look like a plucky Japanese schoolgirl to you? [21:15] starflier06: *falls over laughing* [21:15] starflier06: cosplay! [21:16] starflier06: You’d look so cute with the pigtails! [21:17] starflier06: why is it that these days, i find myself making bizarre statements for your amusement? [21:17] starflier06: Not that you mind, I’m sure, but. [21:35] starflier06: I should get food and stuff. [21:35] TontoMarius: That was a really me comment. [21:36] starflier06: heh. [21:36] TontoMarius: “Like, oh yeah. Food.” [21:36] starflier06: heh [21:37] starflier06: i had toast for dinner […]

The Light Before We Land
By Dwip December 19, 2005 at 12:55 am Comments Off on The Light Before We Land RSS Feed for this post

Having nothing to do with anything, except I felt like using the title. GSG rocks. On that note, there’s a Haibane Renmei box at the shop I’m desperately trying not to blow a bunch of money on because it’s awesome. I might have a job soon, though, so we’ll see. I should know RSN. We’re back in RBCiv Epic mode again, and Epic One is up here. Actual site linkage will follow when I get some energy, which may be never, at this rate. To reprise something I said to Whir this morning, which was true in that time, just as it’s true today: “We’re sorry, the enthusiasm you have dialed is not in service at this time. Please insert […]

Exercises In Photoblogging

Wherein I qualify a statement I made to Regina earlier, along the lines of “Christmas decorating. Ph34r it. With great ph34r.” Witness: Well, your standard tree is pretty tame, I will admit. There’s not even a lot of presents under there this year. The rest of the living room. You can only sort of see the row of cards along the windows. Note the snowman, which will cackle evilly for about a minute and wish you a happy holiday, without mentioning how it would like to murder you, with an axe. Random porcelain angels. Random porcelain Santas. Usually we edge the window in tinsel, too, but we didn’t do tinsel this year, mostly because I didn’t really want to do […]

What’s My Age Again?

25, apparently. To quote Regina’s card, “Just think! Soon, you’ll be able to do ‘back in my day’ shpiels!” Little does she know. But she got me a neat book, so that was all good. And I got another neat book from my parents, as well as shoes and a new pair of BDU pants to work in, which A) means I no longer have work pants that are pushing ten years old (or my old BDUs, which were more like Gulf War vintage), and B) is the first time I’ve recieved clothes as a gift in…many years. But I need these things, so. Too, Cole came over, and we played a bunch of MP Civ with Whir, and then […]

Whir: Get back here and entertain me. Me: No. Whir: Wrong answer. Me: I thought it was a perfectly good answer. Whir: I’m not arguing the validity of said answer, just that it’s the wrong one.
