Gamer nerd alert!

Surprise!
For those of you who follow the indie gaming scene, Jesse Heinig (writer of multiple White Wolf supplements, designer of homebrew games, story writer for Half Life, current quest writer for Star Trek Online) is apparently in a spot of medical trouble. He appears to have gotten a misdiagnosis which escalated into a staph infection and surgery is now occurring. If you have a few bones to spare for medical expenses, go to this site:

Random Hilarity

Surprise!
An excerpt Entertainment Weekly interview with Max Brooks about the Zombie Survival Guide selling its millionth copy:

"I think the vampire craze, particularly the Twilight movement, is great, because there has to be a market for tween girls who are afraid of penises. Clearly there’s a large demographic that thinks that male genitalia is scarier than vampires. And I think, “Good for them.” Everybody’s gotta have something. So good for the vampires. Never been my thing."

For the Twilight fans in the audience, sorry, but I think that's amusing.

Full interview can be read at Max's website: http://maxbrooks.com/news.php , for those that want a bit more context than I care to provide.

Whisper Goes to the V-E-T.

Surprise!
Yes, today was the kitten's first excursion to the vet's office for new vaccinations, boosters, preventative worm treatment, general poking and prodding and other assorted inspections. She was pretty good about it, overall. Some complaining in the car ride over, but nothing too obnoxious.

Outcome: Whisper is in fine health, no fuss or concerns thusfar. And to make it up to her, I got her a little mini cat condo, and a couple of new toys to play with.

Behold the healthy kitten!Collapse )

My St. Patrick's Day Toast

Surprise!
Stolen from my cohort in crime, Smitty:


When we drink, we get drunk.
When we get drunk, we fall asleep.
When we fall asleep, we commit no sin.
When we commit no sin, we go to heaven.
So let's all get drunk and go to heaven.
