Managed to pick up some contract work as a Legal Assistant. The upside is I can work from home for most of it.

The downside, as with any contract work, is that it's not regular. Damnit.

Still need a full time job. I'm going to start looking out of state soon, so if anyone has any lawyer friends that need a legal assistant/paralegal....... >.>

Oh, and happy new year eveyone. GL HF DD KA NO RE.

We finally got our snow in Wisconsin. 2 inches of light stuff that is drifting in the 18 mph winds. My cat was going completely nuts in the house running around. he would walk by me and then run away when I made the slightest move in his direction. When I threw him outside he would act like the snow was biting his paws as he walked on it. Then it turned into a game of hide and run away while i got ready for the morning.

Puppies are messy. I don't like it.

Daytime hours at work kinda suck. I don't like it either.

My exercise bike is finally together. Now I just have to put the time together to, I dunno... maybe actually use it.

Finished Gears 3 last night. Pretty satisfying ending.

Looking forward to the weekend.

Some drama this morning: I'd been having something of a problem with the lock on my door since I moved into my current apartment about 13 years ago, but it decided to finally give up the ghost when I had a visitor here, effectively locking me in and my visitor out. The hardware in my door is three pieces, the door handle, the lock itself (which can be operated with the door handle to unlock it from the inside), and the cylinder (which you put your key in to lock and unlock it from the outside). Only the lock needed to be replaced after maintenance unlocked it from the outside, so I was able to keep my key.

We ended up getting 5 inches of snow here in WIsconsin. Ended up snow blowing the driveway 3 times as it drifted rather bad. Not to mention the new 4 ft wide sidewalk in our front yard.

Elderly lady next door usually has someone plow her driveway but he was out of town and asked me to help. It was no problem and I was happy to do it. Gave me $20 and i even came back the next day to clear the drifting and the end of her driveway that the blow left for free.

Next weekend I am celebrating my 37th Birthday a bit early (normally the 25th) with a party and I am inviting a bunch of people over to play Talisman with all the expansions

Be better then the last one when my mom passed 3 days before my birthday

Conversations with my Cat while in my bed room:

Me: "Hi Jae!"

Jae: "Mrrrrrrr-rwow?"

Me: "You know about 98percent of these things here in this room I've owned long before the two of you existed..."

Jae: "Mrrrrrrrr-rwow!"

All at the while, 'Skittish' Bob *STARES*

---------------------------------------

Yeah, they're getting bigger now D:

they normally hang out with me during the day and evening, sleeping on my bed

I have a feeling that the 'real Jae' still wants em

Trying to hit on ridiculously hot girl I was accompanying for at Mass this morning. But this other dude from the choir stayed late and WOULD NOT GO AWAY. He obviously likes her. And he knows her better since they are in the choir together. Meaning I have no chance. The only thing I have on him is that I am taller than she is, and he isn't. But if he keeps blocking me, it doesn't matter, since I'll never be able to get her alone and work my mojo, dang it At least I was able to insert an invitation to privately rehearse with her if she wanted. If you know what I mean. And I think you do.

2/3rds of the way through a 3-day weekend... and I'm exhausted. And... I really haven't done anything!!!

How does that work?

Mom is now laying a guilt-trip on me for not being around much to do stuff around the house. Which I guess is a nice change from the last 20+ years of guilt-trip for always being around the house too much in my time off, sitting around moping and/or playing games,.. and not, say, being out getting a girl, and setting up to get her grandkids.

I can't seem to win with her. Ever.

And now when I am here, she puts this crap on me... making me regret staying at home... and making it more likely that I'll spend even less time here.

My son is 8 months old already. Named him after my grand-uncle who was "missing in action" in World War II, until a year and half ago, when I found a document in archives confirming that he was actually "killed in battle", also indicating where he was buried.

I live a bit closer to Baltimore. Is this some football thing you're talking about? Because if so, I'll probably be oblivious to whole thing. I mean, go Ravens and everything, but I'm just not a football fan.

At this point, it feels much more like I'm the parent bird, however.

I'm providing for everything financially... and I take care of 90% of all the chores that need to be done around the place (when I'm there, of course...) and I have to look after her quite a bit now. Stay after her to shower and pick up after herself, and do her laundry... etc...

So when she gets on me I kind of chuckle a bit...

But I have been spending a lot of time with the girlfriend and her kids... simply because I actually have it to spend at the moment. 2 weeks from now, I'll be flat out again with shows, and they'll be saying they never see me because I'm always working.

I taught them all a bit about D&D yesterday. They seemed to enjoy it... though all we really did was make characters for them, and a sample combat encounter. Barely scratched the surface. And I'm super rusty as a DM. I guess I need to re-read some of the rule books.

I'm my copious spare time, of course...

Which version of D&D? Regardless, use a pregen campaign.

In my D&D group we have a bunch of high level characters (16-18) but it is all homebrew for the adventures, and setting. Rather talented DM I got. tho the players don't have much imagination.

THis weekend I am having an early birthday party where I am going to play this

with all the expansions (Dungeons, Highland, Frostmarch, Reaper, Sacred pool, and Dragon). Completely random, beer and pretzels D&D game

Going shopping for some of the food right now

...
with all the expansions (Dungeons, Highland, Frostmarch, Reaper, Sacred pool, and Dragon). Completely random, beer and pretzels D&D game

I ONLY have 1st Edition AD&D and the various "Basic" D&D sets.

You gotta remember: The last time I ACTUALLY ever played D&D was around 1985 or '86! I think I was 15. (I'm 41 now...)

I was out of it before 2nd Ed. appeared.

I was typically DM. I always made my own adventures from scratch... though I own a few modules, I almost never used them. I used the Greyhawk map as a setting for a while... then built my own world. I still have it.

But it's been the better part of 30 years since I've even given it much thought. I didn't even remember most of the combat procedures.

I was thinking of getting the 4E books, just so the kids could play the current game... but I have yet to read a positive review of it from somebody who is an old school gamer.

Maybe I'll just look into one of the free 3.5 "Retro-Clone" D20-System games that are floating around on the web...

But actually, the more I think of it, the "Red Box Basic" BECMI system is probably the best way to start them out. That's how I began...

What we played the other day was kind of an amalgam of stripped-down 1E AD&D and Basic... just to give a feel, and for me to figure out if they even liked it, and if they could possibly handle something more rules intensive.

Interesting news:
WOTC is re-releasing the 1E core rulebooks this spring. I already have originals... but I think it's pretty cool!

1st day of college was fun...got a parking ticket too.

Went to gamestop and saw they had buy 2 preowned get 1 free, so i was like huh wtf i didnt get informed of this the last 2 times i went out and bought 2 preowned each time so i had the one receipt and i picked out Fallout 3 Game of the Year Edition.

Also going to return Dragon Age Origins and pay the extra $1 or $2 for Origins AND Awakening, and hopefully with that receipt pick up Dragon Age 2 for an extra couple bucks, or Mass Effect 2. hmm...


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

@Ed kudos for old school D&D

As far as 4th edition, it is there to prevent a lot of the flaws in 3.5. The fact that Casters bog down the game at high levels. case in point my Cleric was able to cast about 12 buffing spells on himself before entering combat.

Old skool gamers don't like 4th edition because they have spent YEARS learning to munchkin-ize and 'break' 3.5 and don't want to have to learn it again. Just by my browsing of the game each character has "powers" based on their race and class. So it is kind of like Diablo. 4th is different, but I think it makes it more enjoyable for new gamers since everything is rather clear cut at what you can do. Instead of 3.5 where you have to spend time reading books to figure out the best way to min/max your player
