Bad Blogger

I know I am a bad blogger when I let such a gap happen between posts that I forget my password to login.



After a few days of play in LotRO I have to say I am still not sure what I think about it. Honestly, I still think DDO might be the superior game (go go Diablo style MMO!) but LotRO is fun for all of the interesting cameos and places to see.


Get The Boredom Out

So the class I am taking twice a week now is… I can’t come up with the adjectives for it. The closest I can think of is that I can literally feel the seconds of my life passing me by as I sit there. The boredom is palpable and the instructors lack of preparedness is […]

Distracted by thought of Champions Online, the book I’ve been reading, the pile of compost in my driveway I need […]
