Wherein Regina wins the Internet. click me! Also this, which may explain some things to some people. Maybe not. The X-ray rabbit picture at the top there would like to extend an appropriately X-ray rabbitish gesture to our younger readers. What exactly said gesture is, we’re not sure. We’re working on it.

Today In History

Wherein the non-MUD types, which I realize is most of you, flee in terror. However, I realized something the other day. I’ve been doing this, more or less, for about ten years this week. A long time ago, on a MUD far, far away, a certain dwarven warrior, who we shall call Dwip, began randomly jumping through portals in GD. Of the ones I remember, I definitely got killed by sahuagin in sea elves (an area where you take groups of level 50s) at least twice, drowned to death (probably in sea elves) at least once, and for the longest time thought the Gypsy encampment was next to Gwynned Dyr (it’s on the other side of the world). Those were […]

Sympathy For the Working Rabbit

Wherein I come home last night, and have the following conversation with Mom: Mom: So, how’re you feeling? Me: Really sore. My hand cramped up for a couple hours, and it really sucked. Mom: At this point, some people would say “Welcome to the real world.” Me: *rather painfully looks up* Say that again and die. Besides, when’s the last time you were standing 10 hour shifts, anyway? Mom: Yeah, well, I put in my years. Me: Uh, no, really. Mom: Well, I didn’t _stand_ 10 hour shifts, exactly… Me: Trust me when I say being able to sit down makes all the difference here. Because, well, it really does. Leg pain for the lose. So if you meet me, […]

Conversations around the household today: *Morning, as Mom leaves for a day in Eugene* Mom: So, what are you doing today? Me: As little as humanly possible. Mom: I see. *Evening, as Mom returns* Mom: So, what did you do today? Me: I played video games ALL DAY. Later, I will play video games ALL NIGHT. Mom: So you didn’t do anything productive today? Me: Well, I totally saved Tatooine. I’m about to save some Wookies, too. Mom: I see. *Dad enters* Dad: So, did anybody call? Mom: Nope, no messages. Dad: Good. Mom: Tell me about it. *a short pause* Mom: That made us sound really anti-social, didn’t it?

Skills To Pay The Bills

I got I got the skills, as it were. Whir can now be placated with a Beastie Boys ref after the Counting Crows song quote. Or I could bust out Mom’s N’Sync CD and watch his ears bleed. However, since that would make MY ears bleed…no. Anyway. Let us begin with a picture. This is not, I assure you, the sort of New Year’s resolution I intended. But that new job I mentioned requires it for the respirator mask, so there you go. It feels decidedly odd, yet strangely familiar. I wish I could show you a picture of said respirator mask, because, as the guy sitting next to me in orientation said, “Hey, now we get to look like […]
