I have this sign on my door that my good friend Mike Dargie made for my housewarming. It’s a diamond shaped traffic caution sign that shows a stick figure man being blasted in half by some sphere apparently ramming through him at considerable speed. Beneath this is the caption “Caution Pirates”.

Well, fifty-six days in a row of daily journal entries. Not bad, honestly. I finally caved in to brain fatigue yesterday and just didn’t bother. I could have written about the last day of CCEE, and I probably will, but last night I just need to stare at a screen and not think.
And phone . . . → Read More: CCEE day three, sort of … well, mostly a tangent
One of these days I’m going to have to learn to listen to those little precognitive voices in my head. The problem is they’re almost impossible to distiguish from the random, nonsensical thoughts that normally roam through my head.
I’ve been bringing as much extra stuff with me to the expo as made sense for . . . → Read More: A page a day, day fifty-six: CCEE day two
Spent the first day at the Calgary Expo today. It was somewhat tiring for me, but exhausting for others. For my part I spent almost the entire day in the VIP room registering people as they arrived and handing out what few goodies we had to give. Others were spending the day walking and standing . . . → Read More: A page a day, day fifty-five: CCEE day one
The Expo starts tomorrow and I’ll be busy all weekend. Then again, I’ll be taking care of the VIP attendees room so I know I’ll also have a lot of moments with nothing to do. So I’ll be taking my netbook with me and getting some writing done.
I’ve started playing Skyrim again. Having finished . . . → Read More: A page a day, day fifty-four: Skyrim Trifecta
I’m at a loss as to what to write today and inspiration has fled me so I’m afraid you’re going to get another post about games.
I tried to attend a table top game group tonight but very few people showed up. It was awkward. Two guys were playing some wizardly battle game that was . . . → Read More: A page a day, day fifty-three: Let’s talk about gaming… Squirrel!
So I was surfing through the news this morning and came across a report about how the hate filled and ignorance encrusted Westboro Baptist Church had planned to picket the funeral of the man killed by the Boston Marathon bombing, but how hundreds of teamsters organized a counter protest to block them… and the . . . → Read More: A page a day, day fifty-two: Fantasy Funeral
I made the mistake of a nap after work, and then the decision to watch “Going Postal” while cooking and eating dinner. It didn’t occur to me that both episodes in their entirety are over three hours. By the time I finished the night was gone.
I did have thoughts of taking the bike out . . . → Read More: A page a day, day fifty-one: Two pages a day
This will be a bit of a challenge. I’ve walked all the way to the tea shop to do some writing and I’ve forgotten my glasses. I can just barely see well enough to figure out what most of my words are, but I definitely can’t stare at my screen for any great length of . . . → Read More: A page a day, day fifty: Frustrating weekend
