I've decided I wouldn't really want to be wealthy. OK, in many people's estimation I am probably wealthy already, but, what I really mean is I wouldn't want to live like a wealthy person. I wouldn't want a huge house on the lake with my own boat.. think of all the hassle! I'm sure the boat would need lots of tuneups and need to be cared for in different weather circumstances. I wouldn't want a house big enough for entertaining multiple guests - what could possibly be more stressful than hosting a party? Really if I was a millionaire I guess I'd be much like the guy in Ofiice Space - I'd do nothing. There's nothing much I enjoy enough to do constantly, so I'd probably just default to doing nothing, boring as that is.

I'd travel a lot, and maintain some kind of cozy but minimal domicile in which to occasionally catch my breath.

We had a nice thunder snowstorm on Tuesday evening. It was kind of surreal actually. I don't remember experiencing such odd weather before. Go »

People charging me money for nothing...

I guess the saga of me and numberonemusic.com is not over yet. They went and charged my credit card for another $59.95 Go »

Ghost of an Unkissed Kiss

As though I don't look bad enough for sharing information on my lame celebrity crushes, here's a real-life one, albeit a really old one. I'd forgotten that his full name was in the movie we watched the other day and maybe hearing his name was what got me started on this nostalgic path. He's got a common name. Go »

Writing frightening verse to a buck-toothed girl in Luxembourg

The identity of my birthday RB card will be public soon enough, I'm sure, so I figured I'd write a little about it. I won't state its identity outright, in hopes that I can encourage anyone who's not familiar to click the link :P. First, I didn't know a "wimpy" band could wind up ranking quite so high. Go »

More news

So the second crest didn't exactly happen. The first crest was 40.8 (already an all-time record) and originally they said there was a 75% chance the second one would be over 41. Go »

D&D first impressions

So our books came yesterday and I've been reading the Dungeon Master's guide as scheduled while Darrell's been reading the Player's Handbook. It's quite obvious I am going to have to read the Player's Handbook too since there is not so much actual useful information in the DM guide. It has lots of pages about different playing styles, how to handle different personalities in your group, and weird stuff like how to write cryptograms, but not so much useful data on the actual rules.
