Dude, pass the forest!

Metafilter posts are often less than amusing and filled with pretty ignorant if not appalling opinions/writing/etc. This one on pot farms and forest fires was pretty funny. Think it’s making firefighting more… enjoyable?

Another Attempt OK, so the

Another Attempt

OK, so the post from the other day was supposed to:

1. Show that Jean Grey and Girl-type Ranma are voiced by the same woman which is realy odd… what happens if you dump hot water on Marvel Girl now? “Cyclops! Whadda do that for?!?”

2. Share a link I got from Ann F. which is a funny musical about the stock market. It reminded me of the Capital Steps

3. Highlight this (mostly — not the lamb) funny piece about the San X characters.

Well, I had a post

Well, I had a post here but somehow it went away. Damn blogger. I’ll redo it tomorrow. I’ll have to switch to MT soon.

Summer Fun Cthulu Plush

The Net: Straight from Metafilter, Tales of the Plush Cthulu. And I want to use it in this game.

Me: Do not, under any circumstances, attempt to open marinade bottles with very sharp knives. Because pain and blood will result. Which is never a good thing unless you are attempting to summon shapeless spawn.


I’m sick today, so insead of cleaning or doing FoL stuff, I’m surfing the web (meaning today I have a good excuse as opposed to mere laziness). I read some David Sedaris essays over at Esquire.com (think I’ll go read Jesus Shaves again). I found this disturbing video over at Mister Pants. Warning: this is a large file (4 meg). Warning: the sound/picture quality is not all it might be. Warning: you’ll never look at Spock or Bilbo Baggins the same way again.

The rest of the day was pretty much just a wash, playing the damned Hangaroo game.

Not much, you?

Not much going on, so no posts. Saw a community theater version of Prelude to a Kiss. That was pretty cool. The film version was filmed outside my parents’ house. Played with my cats. Wasted time on the internet. I really should clean my house instead. Oh, well.

Still working. :-)

Jason sent me a link to Hangaroo. This is a good way to kill a few hours. While you’re playing, you might want to snack on some of the foods at Ray’s List of Weird and Disgusting Foods. I totally agree with what he said about natto. And even cheese is on the list! I told you so! (Jeff gave me that link.)


I totally thought that “Buffy” and “Ayanna” had to be a Googlewack (OK, only if the game allowed names, darn it). But I found like 150 pages with that combo! Well, at least the right Ayanna has the first site on the list.

(Until I did this entry I had no idea there was an official site!)

Last Hurrah in Milwaukee

Just back from GenCon. Had a wondeful time. Very tired now.

Good stuff:
1. Seeing many, many friends.
2. Winning the first round of a Settlers of Catan Tournement
Which was supposed to be a Starfarers tourney — oops! And Seth took second! Ok, it was just 4 people but still….
3. While you might think that Ewoks and Droids don’t mix, they actually do.
4. Major Domo.
5. Mini Donuts — yum!
Good thing I forgot about them until the last day!

Not so good:
1. Box springs and loud elevator doors.
Not a sleep inducing combination. I sleep on a futon normally and the Hilton beds were disconcerting. The elevator door outside our room more so. Good thing they shut down that particular elevator at night. Then they turned it on at 6 am or so. Grr. Argh.
2. Did I forget to eat again?
I think I must have had 6 meals in the last 4 days. There’s just no time!
3. Wait! Where are you going?
4. In this room no that room no maybe some other building entirely….
While better than some years, the room/time schedules were pretty messed up. I hear the con will be getting some good software to handle the schedule next year. Finally.
5. Where did the time go?
I feel I didn’t get to see anyone nearly as much as I would have liked. Or play as many games. And yet I did something nearly every slot!

Next year in Indy, guys! See you there!

Thanks, Anne, for making Fantasy Aspriations go so well this year! And to Nancy and Chuck who were excellent roommates. And to Steve because kept me awake on the long ride back. And everyone else too.

Page O’Links/Internet Resources

I have updated the Page O’ Links to include the links I have added to my favorites since November. Broken links are still mostly broken.

Welcome to debgpi.net. See what

Welcome to debgpi.net. See what an exciting life I have? I will fix the many many broken links later.
