  1. Know that I'm thinking about you and hope that things get better for you soon. If you need anything, I'm a PM away. D
  2. I chose S.O.N.J.A. because the last supers character I played was Doctor Amazing. Go figure. D
  3. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... Yes, well, if they'd tried that, I'd have let them make the rolls. But by this time, the PCs had thwarted her plans often enough that she was more willing to wipe the blight of the city off the map and take the damage to the environment. A cross between an Enraged at being Thwarted by Dumb Monkey People, and "Sometimes you have to take out healthy cells to remove a cancer." The PCs in turn, were also looking for some payback, since Dryad's been a thorn in their side for most of the campaign. Hiring people to steal stuff, sendin
  4. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... Not a quote per se... The Big Bad is Dryad, a plant character, who hates high technology, and so, steals a nuke to have it blow up the headquarters of the High Tech Company (owned by one of the PC's, Shadowknight). The PC's use Shadowknight's secret entrance to sneak into the building, so they can get close to the hostages and bomb without getting caught. They sneak up to the commisary, where the hostages and the bomb are, and prep an attack. Gryphon, the Telekinetic, grabs the failsafe keys out of the bomb. Winter, th
  5. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... Session one of my Gestalt Campaign. Shadowknight, multimillionare crimefighter (think Tony Stark if he built Batman Gadgets) and Gestalt of Justice (played by Chris, from my quote) is engaging the Firestarters, a malevolent band of villains. He squares off against Flayer, the Gestalt of Sadism, a hot chick in leather. He gets his ass whupped. When he comes to, the first words out of his mouth were, "Crap, I forgot the Safe Word." ----- The media was there taking pictures, and he said, "there's no pictures of me, I bou
  6. Re: Gestalt Sampler {puts money aside} Yay! D
  7. Re: The Last Word That would explain the regularly scheduled part, yes? D
  8. Re: The Last Word It's far more interesting that "comparison of wavelet mathematic techniques for noise removal in spectroscopic data" or whatever my MS thesis was. D
  9. Re: Musings on Random Musings No, that's a tip for the "comedian". D
  10. Re: A Thread for Random Musings Hot college chicks come out in spring to start working on their tans. D
  11. Re: The cranky thread Best wishes my friend. D
  12. Re: The cranky thread So, it's a new month. That's a good thing. Last month was horrible. At least my cousin's surviving baby is doing well. The funeral for the other one sure was hard. (my cousin had twins, one wouldn't eat and the other had a heart problem--she had to have open heart surgery, and she caught an infection. She didn't make it.) Grandma's out of the hospital, and doing much better. Work is less hectic, we're getting unburied. Things are looking up. They'd better. D
  13. Re: The cranky thread Heh. I've got that person in my family. She got my cousin to marry her one day before my wedding; her husband's older brother got his wife pregnant, she was within a 5 week span, also. "Hey, look at me, look at me, I'm special too. Hey, nobody gets attention unless I do too. Hey, look at me." D
  14. Re: The Last Word I think you're spot on. D
  15. Re: The Last Word I picked undergrad based strictly on the amount of money they threw at me. That it was a good school was nice. That my family was po' (we were so po' we couldn't afford the other letters) helped. D
  16. Re: The Last Word $1500 from undergrad. My dad was pissed at the amount of money the bank charged as fees to process my student loan first semester freshman year, so we told the college that we weren't taking any more out. They found me another academic scholarship to cover $1000 (I had to write a nice thank you letter every year to the sponsor), and my parents and I had to cover the rest. $17500 from the grad school. Everyone was getting them, and, well, we wanted cool things too. Felt bad about it, so we didn't get another. Good thing too. I got both debts, and the cred
  17. Re: The World of Via Um, more please. D
  18. Re: A Thread for Random Musings So, they cleaned the carpets on the 5th floor, and apparently decided to dry them out by cranking the heat up to 85 degrees. So, the break room is not only hot, it's humid, and smells like carpet shampoo. Today is a good day to go out to lunch. D
  19. Re: The Last Word That was what I meant, yes. The boss came up asking a question, so I hit Submit. D
  20. Re: The Last Word I think they have a shot for that too. D
  21. Re: Musings on Random Musings Fortunately, being "not for profit" means that explaining that, "Sure, while 90% of the money goes to the 10% of people that have their own account rep, so cutting the people that talk to the other 90% seems like a good idea. But, we want not only to keep Toby Keith, but get the next Toby Keith as well. In order to make money for everyone, we need to keep that next Toby Keith happy too." can stick. If the reason the board is pushing is to get more money to songwriters, keeping songwriters to pay is a good thing. And we're keeping the coffee
  22. Re: The "Nice Happy" Thread Engaged. Wow. Grats. D
  23. Re: The "Nice Happy" Thread Hmmm. My danger sense screaming "It's a trap. Get the guns." D
  24. Re: The "Nice Happy" Thread The best cheesecake I've ever had was the Caramel Apple Cheesecake from the local Costco. Damn that stuff was good. D
