Gaming, Home and Family

…the days keep scribbling themselves by in tidy lines…

Blogkeeping: Every time I’ve tried to post this week, I’ve had Blogger issues. Sometimes it was publishing, sometimes it was just accessing the site itself. It was odd, but annoying enough that I downloaded WordPress and am thinking about giving it a shot. That way, I’ll be able to manage my own comments and categorize my posts. I’ve already installed it on my server — it took less than 5 minutes. The toughest part will be getting my site design templated.

Housekeeping: I’m happy to announce that after much steaming and only a few burns, I’ve managed to scrape off all of the wallpaper in the ‘guest’ room. Thor repaired all of the holes and gouges. Looks like next week we’ll be priming the walls. Our goal is to get the room done by the time Thor’s parents visit in December. I decided to take a personal day tomorrow. No plans other than to putter about the house. It’ll be nice. 🙂

Gaming:On the game front, Dark Radiant (City of Heroes) is 21, Terrwyn (Dark Age of Camelot) is 7 and Dierdre the Pain (Asheron’s Call) is 114.

Guilty pleasure: I watched the first episode of Survivor:Vanuatu on Thursday. Some observations:

  • You were chosen to be on Survivor. Shouldn’t you spend all of your free time practicing making fire?? Nine seasons and STILL people can’t make fire on their own.
  • Why, why, WHY vote off the strong when you’re in a team? Vote off the weak when you have to work together to survive, and vote off the strong once it becomes an individual game.
  • Scout has to go. She’s 59, a cancer survivor, a motivational speaker, a lesbian, a musician, a ranch owner, and has a knee replacement. She also had to be dragged out of the mud pit during the immunity/reward challenge because she wore out. On day 3. C’mon, Rudy was 72 during Survivor:Borneo and fared much better.

    Note to Mark Burnett, creator of Survivor: Stop casting people based on their inspirational stories or personality quirks or the fact that they’re a blonde pigtailled shepherdess. Really, a shepherdess? Real people are so much more interesting.

    Fantasy Football: In week 2, my Legend Killers (0-1) are currently beating the Cherry Hilltoppers (0-1) by 361 points. All of my players had their games today. Hilltopper (and Philadelphia Eagle) Brian Westbrook plays tomorrow. Here’s hoping he has a crappy night. I really want this win. Oh, did I mention that the Cherry Hilltoppers is my brother’s team?
