Off the reservation...

Some people make reservations every year that they may or may not stick to.
This year I made an outline of the things I want to change and/or see changed:

1.) Get a new place.
a.) Get more organized at home.
b.) Get a spot to work on minis.
c.) Get painted armies for the games I play.
2.) Get Casey here.
a.) Get her a job.
3.) Get in better shape.
a.) Physically.
b.) Mentally/Emotionally.
4.) Write Something.
a.) Minis game.
b.) Flesh out the world for novels.
c.) Novel
d.) Supplement material on the world of Balance for Lore Forge.

Update to the outline so far:
1.) Done
1a.) Working on...
Daniel ( the roommate that is staying) and I have cleaned up the house, moved the living room around so that we have more space now, built a shelf to house my movies and TV shows on dvd (instead of using Wendy's French Fry boxes), created a dining area, complete with table and chairs, and I bought a dry erase board that we can leave and/or keep notes on.
The other roommate, Chris, as soon as we move him out (this weekend) will create a void in the house that can easily be filled by more projects like:
1b.) and 1c.) These will be covered by converting my current room into a workspace/computer room after I move into the master bedroom.
2.) This will be accomplished during my 'Vacation to Indiana' which begins in 18 days.
2a.) I think she has begun calling around the local hospitals and whatnots here in the hopes of at least getting some contact info for HR people or dept. managers.
3.) No real work on this yet. at all.
4.) Does a blog count? (Not really)
I think these will be easier when I am A.) Not spending all my time on the computer playing games with Casey in an effort to have 'together time' despite our geographic distance from each other, and B.) settled into a room that actually has something of a 'work here' feel about it once we get the study or w/e up and running. (Once again necessitating that Chris get moved out, and soon.)

So yeah, my update on 2008.

Not really sure where this one originated from, but it was sent to me in an email from a coworker, and I found it rather amusing.

Three Issues to Ponder:

1. Cows

2. The Constitution

3. The Ten Commandments


Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the
mad cow epidemic, our government could track a single cow, born in
Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept, in the
state of Washington ? And, they tracked her calves to their stalls. But
they are unable to locate 12 million illegal aliens wandering around our
country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.



They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq . Why don't
we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys,
it has worked for over 200 years, and we're not using it anymore.



The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a
Courthouse is this: You cannot post "Thou Shalt Not Steal,"
"Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery" and "Thou Shall Not Lie" in a building full
of lawyers and politicians...It creates a hostile work environment.

Feb 14th 2008

So yeah, never really had any of my former relationships happen in or around February. I'm more of a spring/summer lover I guess.
But now, I got a girl, and its Feb 14th.
So I went out and got her a gift. Something to show, one nerd to another, how much I care.
With any luck, she'll get it today...
Oh yeah... 32 Days.

Gamers in business...

Damn, why didn't I come up with this idea?
Mana Potions

Tuesday Morning...

I'd rather be in bed still.
Paid rent yesterday for the first time officially, and I have a New goal now: Buy 2 duplexes.
Duplex 1: Live in half, rent out the 2nd half to make the house payment.
Duplex 2: Set mom and Alec up in half of it, rent out the 2nd half to make the house payment.
Bulldoze Mom's house and rebuild it.
Yup, that looks about right. Guess I'll chalk that one up on the board next to owning my own bar, writing a well-received series of fantasy novels and becoming a tabletop war-game developer.

In a related note: 34 Days left...

And last, for some humor, Here are links to BRK's Airman Howell stories:

B and E

Good Stuff from a fellow WoW-player, and former Airman.

When Cameron was in Egypt land...

Coming back to the world of the living from Plague Central.
Having roommates is one thing.
Having roommates who don't think far enough ahead to isolate themselves while highly contagious with the flu, sucks to high heaven. S'ok tho, after next month, they leave.

SuperBowl Sunday: Giants Defense - Phenomenal
Brady's performance - not great

SuperTuesday: Looks like McCain is pulling ahead at getting the Republican nod, while Clinton and Obama continue to slug it out.
This whole Obama-Clinton thing is really interesting to watch. Can't wait to see how it all unfolds...

Visit my City.
Every time someone visits it, it gets more people.
More people means more options, like industry and security.

I figure, if it look like I'm not going to get a good presidential candidate, or at least one that shares my beliefs on what we need to do for America, then at least I can rule my own little piece of the internet.

Ooo, also... My New Prediction, hehe: GOD's Ticket for America
Mitt Romney - Republican Presidential Candidate
Mike Huckabee - Republican Vice Presidential Candidate

I can definitely see these guys trying something like this.
Doubt highly they will, but it would be humorous.

Whatever happens, don't vote Hilary. Obama, McCain, Romney, Your Dead Great-Grandmother...
Anyone, just not that evil harpy who is hell-bent on legislating the hell out of my Video Games.
