Kyu_kage : Anybody in here want to run for the Guild Committee next week?

Murray, GM : Pointing from player to player : Treasurer; Secretary/Treasurer; President; Treasurer, Vice-President/Secretary/Treasurer...

Dave : President as well

Murray, GM : Oh yes, you were the Guild's second President, weren't you?

Dave : Twenty years ago.

Murray, GM : So, Hell no.

Reminds me of when I walked into an Anime Club meeting late one time in college. Everybody looked at me, and the current Treasurer asked if I wanted to be president. I paused, then said I would run. He replied that I didn't need to, nobody else wanted it, so I was now president of the club.

 

One bonus was that the president was in charge of the club's anime and manga collection, so I could peruse at my leisure. :)

Re: Quote of the Week From My Life.

 

Once a co-worker of my had a stuffed dog (beanie baby) and a stuffed ocelot from the zoo. I took the 'cat' and waved it up and down in front of her, then grabbed the dog and pretended it barked. As she looked at me as if I'd lost my mind, I said "It's cat scan and a lab report."

 

And then I ran, just like I'm doing now.

I assume the office was bugged, too?

A lady friend of mine and I were chatting in IM's, and the topic turned to her wanting to get a Droid™ as her new cell phone.

 

She said: Now I just need to find the porn applications and the vibrate function and I might REALLY be able to use the thing.

Me said: I just hope they sell replacement batteries in bulk...

I'd be surprised if there wasn't an iBrator app already. (The Apple Store version would list it as a, "massage tool," of course.)

Re: Quote of the Week From My Life.

 

After I claimed that her favorite ice cream store had closed, my 14 year-old daughter responded with a deadpan: "Speaker of untruths, your trousers have combusted."

 

I guess that's her way of saying, "Liar, liar, pants on fire."

Something I've said many times, more or less in these words:

 

I'd much rather never get off the ground, than fly just long enough to crash and burn while still on the runway.

Lancaster's player is moving out of the country for a bit

"I'm outsourcing myself to China"

At the Guild, discussing the roles of Reverend Joe in the Cthulhu game

"So Catholics are Battle-priests and Protestants are D&D clerics?"

We watch a large blowfly staggering drunken around the edges of a puddle of beer

Re: Quote of the Week From My Life.

 

Talking with a friend on the phone last night. She asked, "What are you doing?"

 

Me: Just heading home after a game.

She: Oh, cool. Who did you see?

Me: Who did I see? :confused:

She: Er... sorry. I live out here in podunk. When someone says, "I'm going home after a game" around here, it's assumed they mean, "I just went and saw a football game." :lol:

Re: Quote of the Week From My Life.

 

I was reminded of this one recently.

 

The Scenario

My friend and I are sitting in my room one day (I was renting a room in her house at the time) while her husband and 15-yo daughter were, as per usual, roughhousing in the other room. This time, however, the daughter's pleas for help caught Mom's attention. But she also did not want to disrupt them if this was just play Ergo...

 

::sounds of wrestling::

Daughter: Help! Mom! He's hurting your baby! Halp!

Mom: Child? If you really need my help, say "watermelon".

::silence::

:: pause::

Daughter: Help! Mom! He won't let go! Help!

::more sounds of wrestling::

Mom: Carry on.

Me: Ah! Baby's first safe-word!

Mom: Oh, shut up!

There's something similar for my 4 y.o. daughter. If my wife or I are tickling her, she knows that saying "No" or "Stop" will only get a pause in the game, while saying "No Thank You" means she really wants us to stop.
