Heya guys, since my Mom has stabilized somewhat, we could have Geek X-mas this coming Thursday if X is in town. Here is the catch, Willow is spending the night at the Hospice on Thursday (we are doing shifts overnight at the Hospice since we are unsure how she will be day to day, my shift is friday night), so you guys would have to come to my place at around 9 o'clock (I can't go to GNHQ since I have Aidan and he is asleep at around that time). We can exchange and hang out till the normal time and then you fools can get the heck out of my house! =-)

Lemme know (kinda hinges on X)
You guys HAVE TO SEE "the twins effect" Its just tooo damn cool
You are the Bard, fun-loving and knows a little
about a lot of things, but not a lot about any
one thing. Musical, talented, and charismatic,
everyone loves you and you love to be loved!

Well Then....

Anyone who is looking for something to do on New Years, friends of mine and I are going to Le Scratch. It's $20 to get in.
Having just seen the last episode of the X-Files, I am so relieved that I never developed a real interest in the show. Talk about nonsensical conspiratorial masturbation. It made me realize that conspiracy nuts aren’t interested in the truth, just in uncovering the next layer of the conspiracy.
You are the Sorcercer, what is hard for others

tasks even without much knowledge about them.

Beyond Good and Evil. Play this game.

So I have just watched Donnie Darko and am still digesting it . While I liked its surreal mix of teen-angst, mental illness, philosophy and time travel, there was something about it that didn't quite add up, and its bugging me that I can't figure out why that is.
SOOO.... what are you guys doin tonight.
Happy Spooky Day!
and to all a

All our hearts and thoughts especially go out to Jericho and his family.
Kinda bored and mulling over a second viewing of ROTK this evening. Unfortunately, I'd really rather not see it at the Shitty again, which means that its probably gonna be at the Comeandseemybum, showtimes at 8 and 8:30. Anyone interested?
Happy Christmas Eve

Not fun news, but an update:

When my mother was brought to the Hospice from the General she had not eaten or drank on her own for 6 days and could not talk or move and we thought every moment would be her last.

Since arriving at the Maycourt Hospice (last tuesday) she has had a marked improvement. She is drinking (a lot) and even eating little scraps of food. She can now turn her head and move her hands a little and carry on plenty of conversations (though she forgets things very quickly).

Her overall prognosis hasn't changed, but at least we are able to interact with her, which wasn't the case last week. The Hospice is a great place, with caring nurses and volunteers and plenty of resources for visitors and the patients and they actually get to know the peple and cater to their wants (massages, baths, music, etc...)

I just wanted to give an update because I know people have been wondering and thinking about us...I'll keep you guys up to date as things change.
The Ultimate Gaming Table
So, apparently Starbuck is now a woman. This looks so bad, I must watch it.

Apparently, Space Channel will be running a Farscape marathon on New Year's Day. Just the thing for those hangovers.
So X and Guppy were saying last night that they would like to hold off doing the Geek-Night Festivus until Jericho can attend. I think Vlad the Lad was OK with this too.

This way we can ping him off when we have a wrapping paper fight (Darth, go easy on the damn duct tape this year)

Thoughts? Concerns?

Return of the King, Baby!

Thursday December 18. Shitty City: 8:00pm
Bladesemmer, Darth, Guppy, Kalgash, Spooky, Vlad the Blad, X
Spooky and I will be at the East Side Mario's at around 6, if anyone would like to get their tickets and join us for dinner.

Elvis has Left the Shire!
For those of you who just can't get enough socializing, you also have the option of dinner at Mitzi's on Sunday the 21st, 7pm. So far it's me, Mark, Guppy, and possibly Kim. Let me know if you want in, so I know how many for the reservation.

So here is the apparent plan, Geek Festivus will happen this Friday at Casa del Jericho (1885 Simard Dr. in Orleans) at 7PM. I figure we can have a bit of a Pot Luck? or everyone can just bring some munchies and we can geek-out old school style...comments?
They stuck Poofter Dragons in the game!
Spooky and I will be seeing the 8:00pm showing of Lord of the Ring: Return of the King this Thursday the 18th.

I am buying tickets tomorrow, Please Comment if you would like me to buy you a ticket, even if you have already given me money.

I'm going to be buying tickets for the 8:30 showing of Return of the King tomorrow. Spooky, X, Blades, Vlad, Guppy, Kalgash and myself are definite. I'm assuming Jericho and Willow are going for now.

Anyone I'm missing? Or not going?

I had a dream last night where Kalgash invited a whole bunch of people to geek night without asking. Like, an entire polynesian family, with their 12-year old daughter running around. And some guy who was about 40. And then Kal started insisting that in order to be polite, we had to let the 40 year old win. We were all really pissed.

Kalgash? Consider yourself informed that such behaviour will be frowned upon in future.

an overnight shift, plus a massage chair is a very dangerous. very relaxing, combination.
Erm. And this one is for Jericho. Word up, yo.
This ones for Blades:

An actual good looking Transformers Game. Check out the screenshots...
What?! Its two o'clock and we have yet to hear the word from the street?

PS: I will be buying tickets for ROTK early next week. It's be nice if a group of certain someones would give me the money in advance tonight. Ta!

Just thought this was hilarous. :)

"As a Canadian, you have to be extra vigilant. There are a lot of impostors out there. If you suspect that someone is falsely trying to pass themselves off as a Canadian, make the following statement - and then carefully note their reaction:

Last night, I cashed my pogey and went to buy a mickey of C.C. at the beer parlour, but my skidoo got stuck in the muskeg on my way back to the duplex.I was trying to deke out a deer, you see. Damn chinook, melted everything. And then a Mountie snuck up behind me in a ghost car and gave me an impaired. I was S.O.L., sitting there dressed only in my Stanfields and a touque at the time. And the Mountie, he's all chippy and everything, calling me a "shit disturber" and what not. What could I say, except, "Sorry, EH!"

If the person you are talking to nods sympathetically, they're one of us. If, however, they stare at you with a blank incomprehension, they are not a real Canadian. Have them reported to the authorities at once. The passage cited above contains no fewer than 19 different Canadianisms."
There is so much wrong with this, that I don't quite know where to begin.
I don’t know quite what I was expecting; A Disneyfied Christmas tale about the young boy who melts the heart of a curmudgeonly store Santa and teaches him the meaning of Christmas. A Christmas movie parody with a lot of injokes about 3 ghosts and creative uses for candy canes?
Fuck that. Bad Santa is destined to go down in cult-flick history as the anti-xmas flick. Santa is a lethally alcoholic, incontinent, perverted* loser who get propped up every year by his foul-mouthed, pussy whipped diminutive partner to rob the stores they work in. Along the way, Santa meets up with a fat, lonely snotty-nosed kid who latches onto him like a remora, and tries to teach Santa about the true meaning of the Wooden Pickle and the Talking Walnut.
See it. If only as the antidote to every sugary, overbaked song, show, movie and emotion that gets shoved down our throats this time of year.

*(I don’t think I’ve every quite imagined Santa saying “You ain’t gonna shit right for a month!’)

For those who don't know these are the dudes that made the Icewind Dale series, Fallout series, and Planescape Torment, this is a sad day in the anals of RPG geekdom...

Let's bow our head...

Click on Wesley to save the day.

Unfortunately I have to work on the 17th, which means that I cannot attend the premiere of Return of the King (Not sure I want to brave Shitty City on opening night anyway). I would like to see it Thursday 18th however.

Though I know Kal, Vlad and others will probably have seen it by then, but I’d like to go it Thursday with anyone and everyone. We could have dinner before hand, then return to the GNHQ after the film for hot-chocolate, pie and prezzies.
What say?
Anyone want to ocme over and watch the TTT Extended Edition tongiht at GNHQ? Say 7:00ish? Post a comment or gimme a call.
What can one say about THE LAST SAMURAI. Lets present an example shall we? The movie begins with a narration that tells how Japan was a nation created when the gods dipped a sword into the waters and three drops from the blade formed the three main islands.
Now if you can spot the error in that sentence you immediately begin to realize that there is going to be a lot of tweaking going on to make Bushi culture fit a Hollywoodized version of history. The rest is just a steaming load of cliché.
Garlic, pickles, turnips and onion shawrma ... Delicious! Krisky Kreme donuts, Scumptious! Together ... not so good.

You guys realize I was asking if anyone wanted to come along right? :)
Ahem..a spoken word performance by Jericho:

I glance outside
the air so cold and sharp
Geek-night is upon us, the time is right
A Blades there may not be
but merriment can still be ours

Who may arrive, is anyones guess
what food we share, what tales we spin
Guppy can ride in the wings of my Saturn
A ride to the night, a return trip home
Anon we race, for the night is ours



Babylon 5 news...hmmmmm...
So we're meeting tomorrow as usual minus a Blades.
I'd like to remind Jericho and Darth to bring me the games so i can figure out which ones to go and trade for Xmas gifts and crap. So PLEEEEEEZ dont forget. In case you dont remember. I will be bringin Jericho back his Kessen. And Drakkan and ffchronicles to Darth. You guys have my:
Oni, Spiderman, Dragon warrior(gb) and advance wars(gb). If there is any that u might have pleez bring them. I really appreciate it. The only time I'll get to go xmas shopping is this weekend. Thanx peeps.
FYI, I won't be able to make it to Geek Night this week. Working until 9:30PM on Thursday, and I've got a certification test Friday which I should really be awake for.
Donna, Mike and I are celebrating our birthdays on December 20th. We're going for dinner to Tuckers (on the market) at 7:30 and then to Maxwell's for drinking and dancing. Please let me know if you can make it.
