And I’m Not Back!

Again, I haven’t posted a damn thing to this site.

Instead of whining or making excuses about that crap, here are some points of uninterest about my life recently…

  • The kids were sick last week, and got me sick.  Stomach Flu.  I don’t enjoy vomiting, but hey, what can you do.
  • I hit level 50 in SW:TOR.  Waiting for the new patch to come out in April before I start a second character.
  • I’ve picked up my camera again, after a long absence from photography.  Pictures soon, maybe.
  • I am sick of Girl Scout Cookies.  I’ve spent 4 weekends selling cookies on street corners.  It’s for a good cause; we’re taking the girls to DC in June, but… I’m sick of it all.
  • I’m very far behind on my TV watching, movie viewing and book reading.  But what’s new there, right?
  • I’ve almost completed my multi-year project of building a database for my Star Wars Book/Comic/Magazine collection.  Next step is to publish it online.
  • Sadly, I’m too broke to go to ROFLcon III this year.  Very upset about this.

This was making the rounds last week, but I didn’t give it a look until today. – I can’t believe that the trailer for a video game made me a bit misty. I’m such a softy. (None the less, I can’t wait to play this one!)

“And soon I realized what video games have in common with cocaine: video games, you see, have no edge. You have to appreciate them. They do not come to you.”

I wonder how many parents in the audience don’t quite understand how awesome this is?

Separated At Birth?

Last week, we went to a “minor league” basketball game, the Fort Wayne Mad Ants vs the Maine Red Claws. (These teams are part of the NBA Development League.)

Once the game started and the players took the court, I had to do a double take.  One of the Mad Ants players, Dan Dickau, from a distance, when all sweaty and running around, looked a lot like CollegeHumors own Josh Ruben.  Really!  Here, take a look…

Okay, so maybe they’re not identical twins, more like fraternal twins, but still, from the bleachers, I could swear it was Josh playing ball.

(I bet the game woulda been more entertaining if it had been Josh though.  That guy is one funny dude!)

What happens when you combine Super Mario Brothers with Tetris? You get my new addiction. http://ping.fm/AUYn2
