Holy crap.

Well, I have a new claim to fame here at work (pretty bad). If you want to hear about it, shoot me an IM.



Bleargh. 20 hr day. So tired. Sleep. Funny.



Whee. The only thing keeping me sane is little entertaining things when I get home from work - like so. Also, I stan... er, sit corrected. I am in fact a Gen-X-er. Thanks Alison =P I think work has knocked most of the cognition out of my head. Buut.... I'm a...

Smart Paladin
66% Combativeness, 30% Sneakiness, 76% Intellect, 52% Spirituality
Valorous! Noble! Or possibly just a self-righteous jerk (but with the brains to keep you alive!)... You are a Smart Paladin!

Paladins are holy warriors. They are valorous defenders of the light.
Unfortunately, most of them are so ardent in their defense they tend to
meet sticky ends faster than you can say "rampaging red dragon." Many
people look up to Paladins, while others just consider them stuck up,
overbearing, or self-righteous.

Fortunately for you, unlike most Paladins, you're pretty smart.
Which means that you're more likely to fall into the "admired"
category, rather than the "obnoxious" or "dead" categories.

Much like the crusades, you manage to combine violence and
religion, though unlike the crusades, you add a healthy does of
intelligence. You may be a staunch defender of the faith, a valorous
champion of the weak, or the stuff that jihads are made of. Which ever
one you are, just be happy that you?ve got the smarts to back it up and
make it work.

It's been a long but relaxing weekend, and the work week is going to start far too soon... My grandmother is going in for surgery tomorrow. If anyone reads this, please wish her the best. I know I will be. I need to get some sleep, but before I do, here's an interesting article about art styles and realism in video games. I also realized that my dream is that of a Gen-Y child. The world has become a different place than the stereotypical dreams represent. I don't want to write the Great American Novel. I want to create the Great American Videogame.



We all make mistakes

OMFG this is a hilarious eBay auction...

You are bidding on a mistake.

We all make mistakes. We date the wrong people for too long. We chew gum with our mouths open. We say inappropriate things in front of grandma.

And we buy leather pants.

I can explain these pants and why they are in my possession. I bought them many, many years ago under the spell of a woman whom I believed to have taste. She suggested I try them on. I did. She said they looked good. I wanted to have a relationship of sorts with her. I’m stupid and prone to impulsive decisions. I bought the pants.

The relationship, probably for better, never materialized. The girl, whose name I can’t even recall, is a distant memory. I think she was short.

Ultimately the pants were placed in the closet where they have remained, unworn, for nearly a decade. I would like to emphasize that: Aside from trying these pants on, they have never, ever been worn. In public or private.

I have not worn these leather pants for the following reasons:

I am not a member of Queen.
I do not like motorcycles.
I am not Rod Stewart.
I am not French.
I do not cruise for transvestites in an expensive sports car.

These were not cheap leather pants. They are Donna Karan leather pants. They’re for men. Brave men, I would think. Perhaps tattooed, pierced men. In fact, I’ll go so far as to say you either have to be very tough, very gay, or very famous to wear these pants and get away with it.

Again, they’re men’s pants, but they’d probably look great on the right lady. Ladies can get away with leather pants much more often than men can. It’s a sad fact that men who own leather pants will have to come to terms with.

They are size 34x34. I am no longer size 34x34, so even were I to suddenly decide I was a famous gay biker I would not be able to wear these pants. These pants are destined for someone else. For reasons unknown - perhaps to keep my options open, in case I wanted to become a pirate - I have shuffled these unworn pants from house to house, closet to closet. Alas, it is now time to part ways so that I may use the extra room for any rhinestone-studded jeans I may purchase in the future.

These pants are in excellent condition. They were never taken on pirate expeditions. They weren’t worn onstage. They didn’t straddle a Harley, or a guy named Harley. They just hung there, sad and ignored, for a few presidencies.

Someone, somewhere, will look great in these pants. I’m hoping that someone is you, or that you can be suckered into buying them by a girl you’re trying to bed.

Please buy these leather pants.

Yeah, change that last post from 14hr day to 21hr day. >_< Time to enter a coma.


do de do de do...

Still at work... dum de dum... waiting for a build and deploy to finish... do de do... head hurts too much to get any real work done, so here I am... la la la... after a 14 hour day... still at work... bum ba da bum bum...

reading about people who have way more money than me...


Wow. Creepy.

I've had this exact conversation with quite a few people about art and my drawings. Pretty much sums it all up (in the girl in the strip's words.)
