In Moot Member Blogs Month Seven Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #8 New May 22nd, 2008 08:53 AM
As of this morning, when I got off work. I was able to celebrate my seventh straight month of working seven days a week with no days off. Go me.

Now, I won't deny that I'm a bit burned out and see no relief in sight, but I also have to acknowledge that I've lost about 60 pounds during this time, have paid off a $4600 debt, a $980 debt, and am about to finish paying off my last college loan. I've also been able to bootstrap Studio Cat into an actual solvent small business, again go me. So it ...More Read More

I'm in a regular Sunday game now, which makes me very happy. It's DnD, but I've been passing around the CT and T20 rules in an effort to subvert the dominant paradigm. It seems to be working because I've gotten nothing but enthusiastic responses from the other players so far, so we'll be trading off between DnD and either CT or T20.

Dad's got bronchitis, so I've been taking care of him more than usual these past weeks. Its not anything serious, but at 84 every health problem is a ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs How MWM Indirectly Helped Me Get A Car Entry Tools Rate This Entry

OK, I've got weekends off now. Yea!

However, my car fell apart, literally. So I had to buy a new one. Yet after some four days of shopping around and six hours of wrangling with the dealership, I had encountered a stumbling block. The bank could not approve my loan without some evidence of my residence, all they needed was an envelope from a letter with my address on it. The problem is that I usually throw away my mail after reading it. Except for a thank you for Marc's birthday wishes that ...More Read More

90 days with only 2 days off, work is getting monotonous...

Except for the fire alarm system that got hit by lightning and fouled up, which the General Manager here decided to place on "silence" instead of fixing immediately. It took a visit by the local building safety inspector and the fire department before the GM fixed it. Up until that point, every morning between the hours of 3am and 4am when the alarm monitoring company tests their communications lines, the fire alarm went off.

Ex ...More Read More

I'm a bit tired now, the workday is over and I've just finished the research needed to complete an article rewrite. I'm researching at home now because of the humidity around where I work (I work in the Smokey Mountains, one of the last deciduous rain forest areas of the USA), I'm not going to bring my primary game books with me anymore because the damp air is making the pages wavy. Can't let my only copy of a book get damaged.

I've always thought about somehow combining gaming with some kin ...More Read More

For those of you who have seen Black Hawk Down, you remember a scene where a support machinegunner is asked to stay back and provide support fire while his squad moves on ahead. When asked why him, his squad leader tells him, "Because you're reliable."

His answer was, "I hate being reliable, man!"

Well, the twerp who was suppossed to be taking my shift on Mondays and Tuesdays has managed to wreck his car in a DWI incident. When the report got back to my boss, it turned out that this was h ...More Read More

This is my first day off in the last 42 days. Yes, I'm
enjoying it and I'll enjoy the one that follows.

I was suppossed to attend AdventureCon, a local con, on
June 1-3. Due to my coworker quitting without notice two days
before the con, I missed it. Since he and I were the only ones
trained for the site I work at, I had to cover his shifts until
they found a replacement. I've enjoyed the big overtime
paychecks, but they haven't been worth missing the ...More Read More

OK, well I've got one of these now...

Here's the deal, this blog will have two parts. I'm going to be using this for some random musings on gaming, Traveller, my foray into writing/publishing, and a little of life in general - that'll be part one. Part two will be a diary blog written from a character's viewpoint going through a solitaire adventure in the OTU. I'm still putting together these parts, so nothing solid yet.
