Maid Marion

Tomorrow, Games Workshop launches their new edition of Warhammer 40,000 in the U.S. I had a little piece written up about how I was proud of where the company is today, how the new rules were exciting, and other such things.   Then I looked at Facebook. And decided I needed to write a different […]

No Emergency Contact.

Over the weekend, while playing with woodworking tools, I did some damage to myself. It was kinda gross, very alarming, and necessitated a trip to the ER. I’ve been cautioned that it will take me months to recover the use of my right hand. Stubborn Steve says “Yeah, I can shave some of that time […]

Going Home

December 5th this year was an important day. Not for everyone mind you, but for certain folks, it was the day where a friend’s death passed its equinox. Waddhana Chhom Prom, known as Nana to anyone American, silently crossed over the line of being dead longer than he was alive. As many of us that […]

A snit changed the world.

My dad was a consummate flea-market shopper. One of his hobbies on Saturdays he didn’t work, was to travel amongst the various tag-sales, garage sales, rummage sales, and flea-markets in the surrounding towns. Sometimes he would take rides up into Vermont or New Hampshire if it looked to be a nice day. If one of […]

Gorka-Morka!

This was the second time, in less than 24 hours, I would find it ironic that I had seen Mad Max : Fury Road the weekend prior. I’m not sure what I did wrong. To be fair to myself – I was running on less than two hours sleep, after being awake for twenty-six hours, […]

Cameras not Submarines

The laughter started almost immediately. I was in a room with a handful of co-workers, a VP, the CTO, and the Operations manager. One of the topics on the agenda was the discussion of a minor upgrade at some of the testing centers. The decision had been made a few months ago to upgrade the […]

Sixty-Eight Cents

I was pondering my life. Which is something you do when you are pumping gas into your car, I suppose. My frustration of the minute was centered around the two dates I had over the weekend. I often find interaction with people to be draining, *especially* first dates where you play the guessing-game all night. […]

Old-school Gamer

Today I stopped at a game store on the way home, prowling for old miniatures. The owner used to work for an old customer of mine, who subsequently went to work for GW. He told me that if it hadn’t been for the store I owned 20 years ago, there are a half-a-dozen places in […]

Throwback

If you were alive in the 70’s, there is something you should do : Go to a grocery store, and buy a case of ‘Pepsi Throwback’. If your grocery store doesn’t have it, don’t shop there any longer, find one with some class. Drive home, take a can, and put it in your freezer. Leave […]

Tailgate

One of my favorite ‘games’ to play with a tailgater on the highway : Scenario : I’m on the super highway, in the right lane , seven miles from the next exit. There is no traffic in ANY of the lanes to the left of me, I have the cruise control set 4 miles over […]
