The prodigal returns!

Tuesday, January 30th, 2007

Okay, I’ve been away awhile. Bad geek. The truth is, I’ve been doing so much that I haven’t had time to blog about it. I suppose it’s time to take up moblogging.

After my birthday last year, I participated in a climb-a-thon,

Belay, belay, belay

hung out with relatives,

and had a grand time gaming with my friends.

I went to my company’s holiday party,

LOOK!

and pour paint.

I played in a poker invitational at work,

I just went to another friend’s 40th birthday party (pictures forthcoming), and I still need to dump a bunch of pics off my camera, that document my travels.

I can’t wait for that 3 megapixel cameraphone with the zeiss lens. Soon, I’ll just upload everything to Flickr, as it happens. 😀

And that was just a month. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year brings…

Pics are up!

Many people came:

Mostly.

I got a notion to get a different colored drink at each place.

Jess gave me the finger:

I think I inflicted bodily harm on multiple people: 😀

Headlock

But I’m sure I received plenty of harm from others:

Thanks for the memories guys, as faded as I might have been when they were created.  🙂

It’s me birthday!

Thanks to those who came to drink with me and thanks to the well-wishers from all over.  My stomach’s a little rumbly, but that’s par for the course.

I look forward to some serious sleepytime.

Pictures will be up as soon as sobriety and sleep have had their due.

I is smart.

You paid attention during 86% of high school!

85-100% You must be an autodidact, because American high schools don’t get scores that high! Good show, old chap!

Halloween at work.

Tuesday, October 31st, 2006

So we had our Halloween party at work today, with a generous prize for the winning costume. I had a brainstorm a few days back, while I was bemoaning that I wasn’t feeling the holiday spirit, to dress up as an aboriginal headhunter. This was partly motivated by watching the Mythbusters episode where Jamie gets covered in gold latex paint from head to toe, to simulate the scene from Goldfinger. The other part of the motivation is the fact that I’ve lost some weight and gotten some definition from doing a lot of rock climbing, and my vanity (favorite sin) told me I should strip down for work.

So I went on a warpath yesterday, looking for supplies to be a aboriginal headhunter. Spear, necklace of skulls, body paint, loincloth, all that good stuff. I managed to find the paint, but the spear and necklace eluded me. I ended up buying like 6 tubes of brown paint, one tube of white, and one tube of black from the Spirit superstore in the area. Couldn’t find a spear, but did find a really cool staff with a skull on it that I probably would have bought anyways. 🙂
Got the loincloth from nabbing a towel we had at home that had spots on it. Used a belt with it to ensure that my manliness would be covered.

Painted myself from head to toe with brown paint. Only used about 2 tubes of the stuff, and used the white to make a skull and make some patterns. The black was accenting on my face. Jacob got my back, literally. Thanks Jacob!
At the last minute, Tony suggested I get a Coke bottle for a “The Gods Must Be Crazy” reference. He ran down to the Marina Market and got one for me. Thanks Tony!

Only took a few pics with my camera at the end, but will be yoinking some pics from Jacob who was using his far superior camera.

Pics follow:

Jen as a Playboy Bunny. (Almost made me run into a railing.) 😉

Kathy as a go-go dancer.

Nice little gift cert coming at just the right time. 🙂  Thanks to everyone who helped and supported my crazy desire to get nekkid.

Devour

I don’t nibble my food. I swallow it whole, in giant, jaw-distending gulps.

You see, I scarcely savor the taste of things after I’m through the moment.

It’s how I consume all things.

Which is why, instead of picking at Neil Gaiman’s Stardust a few pages at a day, I gorged myself in two sittings.

Content, with visions of Fae, running through my head. 🙂

MINI, Pepsi, Mr. Chau’s, and Star 101.3

Sunday, October 29th, 2006

So, a few people know that I’ve been in the market looking for a new car.  My Camry’s starting to show its age, and I’m really hoping to get a car that’s a bit more sporty.  After some deliberation, my heart was set on a MINI, but a few extenuating circumstances came into view.

Now, I like Pepsi, but I avoid Mr. Chau’s (and most Amercanized Chinese Fast Food in general).

But I was listening to 101.3 on the way home this evening, and they announced a contest to win a new sports car, sponsored by Pepsi and Mr. Chau’s.  My mind said MINI, but I snorted and figured it was going to be some American car.

You know where this story is going.

Anyhow, they said MINI, I went to the website to go register, despite my despise.

I’m such a consumer whore.

And how.

Congratulations Jacob and Helen!

So the hubbub has been crazy. I’ve been getting dolled up and preened for a major event. My friends Jacob and Helen got married today! Lots of fun, lots of craziness. Photos forthcoming, after Jacob and Helen have a chance to screen them. 😉

Busy busy busy!

The supreme irony in blogging for me, as I’ve mentioned many times, is that in order for me to blog, I have to be at home, doing nothing.  But all the interesting stuf happens when I’m not at home, and thus not in a position to blog.

Lots of pics of the various things I’ve been doing all over flickr.  And this next week is just as packed.  🙂

Spin off Site

Saturday, September 2nd, 2006

I’ve taken the url www.grassrootgames.com and am starting to focus it together as my gaming dedicated site.

What does that mean?

Well, for one, I won’t be inundating this site with as much gaming related stuff.

Two, I’m making my mark on the game industry in what I hope is a more substantial way than by pushing pixels on a cellphone.

Three, I’ve embraced the definition of “Grups“.
