caller ID surprise

Up at the big honkin flea mart this weekend, across the street from Mr. Taylor, and what should appear on my caller ID?



"Oh, hi .. I hit the wrong button trying to call someone.. Err.. how are you?"

Busy, but not busy enough to excuse my lack of social maintenance.

Been happily running a D&D game for several months, for some folks who seem to view all storyline as window-dressing for tactical miniatures combat, and who say things like "Ooh, the plot train is going that way.. CHOO CHOO!" whenever I give them a slight nudge (even when I intended it as misdirection).

Work has been whelming. Not overwhelming or underwhelming, just whelming.

I slacked off a bit recently in favor of rampant nerdiness, and went from top dog to "doing as well as expected dog" for about two weeks time.. Not sure I like that position, so I'll be barking a bit harder in the coming weeks.

My boss, even though he had seen me frequently playing games when I should have been working, clapped me on the shoulder and said "spend some time where you are.." when my numbers dropped. Guess I should take it as a blessing, but pride makes it hard for me to sit there. I might slack off of normal work in favor of "extra-cirricular work", things like writing articles that are actually more useful to my career than Dwarf Fortress..

Peace out, y'all. I won't promise more frequent updates.. but I do regret not having delivered some.

My vital organs chug away inside me
