1/31/2011 An Unexpected Suprise...

the 255th day...

today i was typing away at my laptop in the kitchen, working an some various projects when i see the USPS truck pull up. now i know my ps3 is coming home soon, but i know that's done by fedex, so i think nothing of it. next thing i know my doorbell rings...

what the hell?

so i get up, walk to the door, open it, and i'm handed a large package. look at the name, and it says "Talbot" on it. Hmm, i know i just emailed him a few days ago, a reply for a request of personal info for his records.

what the hell does he have up his sleeve today?

so i put it on the table and open it. after fighting through a crumpled paper attack of massive proportions, i come across a manila envelope, heavy with contents.

again, what the hell?

i open the envelope to find two books, both about Kaiju, one of the many subjects my daughter and i like together. both new and really cool. i laugh a bit, knowing that those that sent me these know me a little too well. in one the books i see another envelope.

i smile as i pull it out of the one book.

long story short, the fantastic people at Hexgames recognize my efforts as someone who tries to promote their products and would like to thank me for said efforts.

it's been a real good day! :}

1/27/11 The Creative Process has me Shackled...

the 251st day...

in lieu of the loss of my ps3, i have been able to throw myself into several projects to keep my mind occupied, and i have to say the results are wonderful. so far, i have finished several project that weren't even going to be touched until later this year, including a full power point presentation for some of my associates, and the quality went through the roof when it had my undivided attention. i think the fact that i have my own laptop also factored into the speediness of the completion of the task.

so it sound like i wont get my video game console back until the weekend after the Super Bowl. let's see if i can get a 50 page project done before that occurs.

1/20/11 A technological death in the family.

the 244th day...

so the other day, earlier this week, i was on my video game console, paused the game for a moment, then saw the life of the console end in a collection of lights and beeps. i sat there, stunned and saddened by the sudden death of my video game console, and i have now gone through the beginning of the repair process by sending it back to the manufacturer.

today was a big step in the grieving process, as the coffin came in the mail today, and i had to prepare the body for transport. as you can see, she's ready to go, cold and silent. i hope and pray she comes back to me whole.

so the waiting process begins.

life is good for the moment. i bought myself a new laptop computer, something I've never had in my lifetime, for business and traveling. i spent a wonderful evening with my wife, and tomorrow i'm meeting with my other partners to do some work. so things are good for the moment. let's hope they stay that way.


PS. if all goes well, stay tuned for a big announcement tomorrow.

1/14/11 ...With a Grain of Salt...

the 238th day...

on my work team, we have a bunch of new employees, and many of them are younger then me. not that there's any problem with that, but you know how that goes sometimes. they think of you as the seasoned veteran and often want to know information that you take for granted, so occasionally i get asked the "stupid question". not a big deal for me, i have a tolerance for such things.

however, one of the new guys i have come to know as someone who embellishes his stories...a lot. a LOT lot. it's almost to the point that the stories are a bit ridiculous at times. i think last night at work i overhead him talking to a fellow employee, and he was regaling him about how his buddy of his was training to be a ninja, and how the final test was that he had to go and kill someone. i really hope he was talking about historical fact rather than current events and that i just heard it wrong.

so, he also has a very skewed view of like, telling me that he he can't wait to marry "a rich chick" so he doesn't have to work again, and that he almost had that in his hand once and she had been training to be a vet.

is that the sound of a salt shaker in the distance? shake shake shake.

is he trying to impress me, of just creep me out a bit? i really don't know the case, but whatever it is, it's just weird.

creeped out for now,


PS: a really cool announcement coming sunday. be ready.

1/12/11 Desperate for Porn?

the 236th day...

i am often amazed how the primal desires of people can drive people to do stupid things.

last night the roads were snow covered and difficult to manage, and yet i had some moron drive up behind me and tailgate me for almost a mile. the only time he relented was when slowed down enough to make a right turn...directly into one of my town's adult video stores.

i couldn't help but laugh about this. guess the poor person, whether male or female, must've been a little desperate for a fix bad enough to brave the treacherous streets.

go and get your freak on

1/11/11 Down with Sickness.

the 235th day...

last night mt 3 year old came down with something that was hurting her pretty badly. she's clogged up pretty badly (at both ends) and has some serious congestion going on now.

now, i called off of work last night, because i work third and my wife works during the day. so i took one for the team and stayed home with the family so that one of us can be well rested. family comes first in my book, and i really think my wife loves that about me.

last night was a restless sleep, and i really hate it when my mind takes advantage of me. yesterday during the day my wife and i nitpicked at each other for a bit, just a spat really, but because of the events that occurred yesterday, my brain decided to treat me to a bad dream.

i was over at a friend's house, a friend i haven't seen since in months, and the wife and i were there with our sick kid. well, apparently, my wife had decided to leave me and with the sickness of our child it was the perfect time to let me know that we were getting a divorce. obviously, i was a little upset, even more so since i had taken the night off of work to be with my sick child. i don't remember the exact amount of emotions that were involved in the dream, but when i woke up, i couldn't get back to sleep.

again, i know it's just a dream, and our marriage is rock solid. it's that "what if" scenario that bugs me. i know people that are going through divorces, and they look completely miserable. divorce really must suck, and i hope i don't go through one ever.

that's all for now.

1/7/11 The Bucket List Shrinks in 2011

the 231st day...

only seven days into the new year, and already this year is going to be spectacular for me. busy, but spectacular.

allow me to explain: i have met with my group of friends and discussed our convention touring schedule, and it had been confirmed that we are going to participate in Gencon Indy this year. for those of you that don't know, GenCon Indy is the Mecca in the gaming world, and i an excited to be a part of it this year. i have always wanted to go to this convention, and now i have the chance. i am very excited about this.

the second part of my excitement will happen before the end of this month. can't tell you yet, its still a secret, but you'll hear about it soon.

see you all soon.
