Oh man… I spent the ENTIRE day today sitting in front of my computer playing MUME. Literally, wasted away a whole entire precious hard-earned Sunday playing a text-based role playing game. I levelled three times… And do you want to know what’s really sick?
They have this list of users online, you type “who” and it barfs it up in order of who’s been on the least, down to the longest… And can you guess who was at the very bottom of that very long list? Yeah, ME… Ten hours, baby. Yikes!
I think I’m gonna jog in place until bedtime.

As further proof that Generation-X is doing its best to elude moving beyond age thirteen, a chain of Chuck E. Cheese establishments – masquerading as adult recreation – have been popping up all over.
Dave & Buster’s… Have you heard of it yet?
“Food & Drinks. Fun & Games” is their motto.
You can grab a beer or a cosmo, and play some skee-ball – or how about some pool, or a Harley Davidson simulation, or the latest version of Dance Dance Revolution. This world is something else.

Please forgive me, I have been remiss in updating this week. And what a week it’s been! Thank heavens tomorrow is Friday and this craziness will be over. To fill the missing back-log, I’ve posted some fun things for your enjoyment.
Today was the culmination of weeks of preparation – Our annual Strategic Planning meeting. The board of directors and our leadership team, which includes little old me, had a meeting to assess the business climate and ascertain our long term business goals.
Like every other year, it’s all fun and games until the table filled with 20 people or so all turn to me with looks that say, “Now get on it!”
I find it hilarious that we’ve got 40 employees and yet I’m the only one charged with making a real difference in this organization. It’s as if they ride all their hopes on marketing. Although, one of the good things that came out of this meeting was the admission that we need a business development department.
Hopefully I’ll be able to justify a new title – VP of Marketing & Business Development. Although, I’m not holding my breath… It’s already been 2.5 years without a single performance evaluation.
Guess I’ll keep on truckin’ and see how all this plays out.

So are you having a fun weekend? I’ve been sitting around in pajamas playing MUME and building lego people on Chris Doyle’s Reasonably Clever. Click the pic above to make one of your own.
Yep, that’s a representation of me, as a Lego woman, having just graduated from Starfleet Academy. Does it get any geekier than that? Oh wait, it does…
So I was watching some show on TVland the other day, and I learned about this Star Trek episode that was originally intended to lead to a spin-off series. I don’t know what the heck stopped them, because the premise was pretty cool.
I’m severely bummed out, because it would have been Ã¼ber to see how this gay guy and his cat adjusted from space life in the future to Earth in 1968. Groovy baby. With the occassional cameo from Kirk and Spock… This thing could have been golden! NBC… retards.
