I'm back! I survived the GP, and a week without a computer ( :takei: !), and the Con Crud (TM) which cut me down like a stalk of wheat the moment my plane touched back down in Boston! Phew! :D

Happy birthday, CKY! I hope your day goes excellently well, and concludes with the cake of your choice!

I am in the middle of the Swedish equivalent of the SATs. Just got back from lunch and getting ready for the fourth of five hourlong tests. How are you spending your Saturday?

Just got back from lunch with my grandma, looking forward to some ME3 and later a Lego exhibit :)

I just changed the oil in my truck, mowed the lawn, and am waiting for my ride so I can pick up my car from the shop. In a few hours, I'm going to my FLGS (which isn't so local, but it's what I've got) to attend a Legend of the Five Rings tournament and probably buy some games. I've got to buy some windshield fluid at some point there because my truck is out. This evening I plan to play either some Hollow Knight (which I just started) or some Squirm, possibly even both.

EDIT: Addendum: Decided to start watching Darkwing Duck while waiting for my ride.

I am dogsitting the two dumbest animals on earth.

I'm dogsitting two of them as well. Except they're too clever by half. And the smaller of the 2 is still 60 pounds of dog.

Today I saw a local production of The Sound of Music. It was amazing, and not only because it was the first time in over a month that my wife and I did something just the two of us.

That still seems like a lot of dog. (Disclaimer: I know nothing about dogs.)

I find it hard not to be a bit unimpressed by things like this, with my current menagerie being composed of 3 rottweilers (probably 60-80 lbs each), a fat toy mutt (~15 lbs), 5 miniature horses (no real clue for their weight, google says they should be 200+ lbs on average), and an unknown number but certainly more than 3 cats (weight unknown). By number, this is certainly large, but I also grew up with 4 full-sized horses (1,000+ lbs each) which by now filled just under the first half of my life with between 1 to 2 large dogs (dobermans, rottweilers, German shepherds, etc.) and a toy house dog. That, and I've had experience around (though not very directly) bears, elephants, big cats, zebras, camels, and chimps. I've even had baby chimps in my lap (and in my mouth; they like exploring mouths). I'm actually probably forgetting a few species.

Some dogs are bears.

Hey, (extremely belated) thanks for the birthday wishes, and sorry for not being around that much. I've been doing a bunch of things, including:

  • Studying art in the world's worst university art course.
  • Becoming co-leader of a raiding guild in Guild Wars 2.
  • Becoming an administrator of a Guild Wars 2 community website. (MetaBattle's Open World section, if you're wondering.)
  • Creating content for aforementioned community website.
  • Trying (and failing) to work on The Weight of a Soul in between all of this.

I've more or less stopped playing Magic: the Gathering, so I haven't been posting around the rest of the site as much. Right now my focus is on finishing TWoaS and getting it released in a reasonable time frame. It's shaping up to become my most ambitious work and potentially fantastic for getting my name out into wider game development/interactive fiction circles, so I'm doing my best to see it through.

I do hope to eventually finish Red Jackie's Run though, not to mention get Hunter Killer published, so you can expect to hear more from me in the future. For now, if any of you ever decide to play Guild Wars 2, feel free to send me a friend request. :P

Good to see you around, CKY! I hope that, with everything that you've been doing, you are enjoying yourself!

Hey! I'm back! Raven asked me a couple questions in the High School thread so I'll repost and answer them here.

Quote:
Are you back to stay?


Yep!

Quote:
Did you have a nice vacation?


Yep! I've missed this place though.

Quote:
Did you write your book?


Still working on it, but I've made more progress than ever before, so, MODERATE SUCCESS!

Quote:
Did you...- uh, where was I?


You were talking about that short story I wrote in the High School thread.

So, yeah, I've decided to more or less make a return and more or less be a presence on the board again. I can't remember if I've been gone a little over or a little under a year, but every time I came back to lurk I just sort of wished I was back. And so I thought... That's pretty easy to do. Let's do it!

And so here I am.

I don't know how many stories I'll be posting, if any, but I'll be around to comment and talk about stuff. Mostly. I work 54 hours a week currently so that eats up most of my time. Even now I'm so excited to be back that I've stayed up about 40 minutes too late. Eh. Worth it.

Hit me up with ideas. I'm open for business.

Good to be back.
