I know that I am so late to the party here, but has everyone seen this Mythbusters show? I just watched it again for the first time a few weeks ago, and that is some good stuff right there! Holy crap!! They took some old Civil War rifles and test fired them at each other, hoping to prove or disprove the myth of two bullets hitting in mid-air and fusing. I won't spoil the ending, but it rocked! I need to get a job like that! I could disprove myths!!

The ski area in the town I grew up in made the list of Top Ski Areas in Maine, based on a CNN.com article. I assume it was more than just one guy who decided this. Way to go, Rumford! Makes me wish I'd learned to ski when I was a wee lad. Not that I was particularly wee as a lad...though I was.

The song of the day! Gosh, it's been a while! I'll tell you all what! The other week, I was at a wedding of one of my wife's friends (did I already say this? I don't remember, and I can't go back and check...oh, wait, yeah I can!)

OK, I checked, and there was nothing there about it. I should put in a picture from the wedding! Let me look to see if I have any non-embarrassing ones. But later.

Anyways, I was at the wedding, and the bride and groom are great people. Truly awesome! Not all my wife's friends are awesome, but that's an argument for another day. Anyhow, the bride (who, I must note is by no means the typical rap fan...think of Michael Bolton from Office Space, only a woman) loves the rap music! Out of nowhere, in the middle of the reception, what comes out of the speakers? Why it's "YEAH!" by Usher, and Ludacris, and Lil' Jon! You've probably never seen a whiter group than us, all up on the floor, screaming like...drunk white people, which we really were. Not so surprising, now that I think on it. Anyhow, that's the song of the day until the next time I update this blog. Which could be soon or a long ways away. I should change the title from "Miracle ASSassin" to "It's A Miracle You Updated, You ASS".

My outfit's ridiculous, in the club lookin' so conspicuous. heh.

I've heard about that one! Missed it, but I have to keep an eye out for it! :)

Wow, Aaron -- you are so late to that party that I think you're at the Happy New Year 2004 celebration!!! (That's okay, though... I've been known to rock many an over party, too, man. YEAH!!! ;-D)

16-IX-2009 or Behind The Scenes (GE)

For those who are not aware, my first character in Gothic Earth is retiring. I believe that Scott is going to keep him around to use for his own undoubtedly nefarious purposes, but essentially, I am done with him. There were many reasons behind it, but there was just a single overriding reason above all others: I found myself unwilling to continue with him. Go »

28-V-2007 or Hippies will always attack an Elf, when they see one.

Random title of a spam message that came to my work e-mail address recently. Thought it was amusing enough to use as a post title! Well, it's Memorial Day, so take some time to appreciate the sacrifices others have made for you today. Go »

17-IV-2008 or Only To Me Can This Happen...

I have the worst funny story to tell, but I'm going to put in some filler first, so that you can't read the beginning from the main page, so if you want to read just that part, skip down a bit. I'll put in some funky asterisks (asteriski?) when the story starts. Go »

22-XI-2006 or Where have you been?

I know! I've been lax! I was hoping to have at home internet access by now (which I don't yet), which would have helped out with the blogging (and the GOO game...*grumble*). Go »

2-II-2007, or, I'm fine, thanks!

A quick message to those concerned (and apparently slightly confused about Florida locations): I am fine. I was not in the path of tornados. My place of employment was not in the path of tornados. Go »

6-IV-2007 or I am so high, I can see heaven.

That has got to be the worst line from the worst theme song in movie history (IMNSHO)! It's so bad, it's the song of the day! "Hero" by Chad Kroeger (Nickleback lead singer) and Josey Scott (Saliva lead singer), from the movie Spiderman. Go »
