Well, after quite an eventful week including having to spend a night at a friend’s place because my car was being fixed, it’s made its way to once more be Friday. Booyah. Though not exactly “cheering my way” into the weekend, it’s more like a sigh of relief. But hey, any...

Well, while it seems like we dodged one bullet here in Georgia the other day, only getting some rain. It’s looking tonight like we might get a bit of accumulated precipitation. Though considering tomorrow it’s supposed to get to 38 and the day after it’s supposed to be sunny and 51,...

I trust that everyone had themselves a safe and fun Halloween. Anyone see any good gaming-themed costumes out there? Also, did you enjoy the extra hour of sleep afterward? That’s the part I enjoyed the most, I’d say. But then, I’m a bear of simple pleasures. Like how this morning, t...

Friday has once again blessed us with its presence. Let us bask in its warm glow of warming glowing… or something. Suffice to say that the weekend is almost here. What sort of plans do you have coming up? Gaming? Cooking? Or just boring, old “yard work” and the like? For the moment,...

Hey everyone. I hope your weekend is going well. My Saturday was spent with some good friends that I don’t get to see nearly enough, talking about glorious moments from games past, listening to some humorous gaming radio-plays, getting into wacky hijinks, and just generally being odd (while mos...
