A Sign of Age...

Hoo Boy! I was sharply reminded of my age recently, but it was still amusing. I think.
I've been talking to a high school student I know about computer/video games, and we've recommended some games to each other to check out. I, of course, told him all about Guild Wars, and the upcoming Factions campaign, and he told me to check out Black & White, which looks pretty cool.
Anyway, I saw him again yesterday, and asked him whether he had looked at Guild Wars. He said he had, and that he thought the graphics were great, and that "that game is sick"
Well, being a die-hard GW fan, I started to protest- "No, it's nohhh...oh. Sick is good, isn't it?"

Yup. Sick means it's awesome. And it also means I'm too old to understand the language. Bummer.

Just For Fun

My daughter came across a fun site, good for a little stress relief, and sent me a link to it, which I have since lost, but found plenty of links with the same game on them, so I'm sharing one of them with you. (Totally work safe - only turn your sound down if you play it). Have fun!

I am a A Crystal Dragon!

I took the Inner Dragon quiz and found out I am a Crystal Dragon on the inside:

In the war between good and evil, Crystal Dragons take the side of the noble and good....
When it comes to the powers of Chaos vs. those of Law and Order, your inner dragon tends to do things by the book. ...
As far as magical tendancies, Magical spells come as natural to the Crystal Dragon as breath from its body....
During combat situations, a true Crystal Dragon prefers to defeat opponents by the use of spells and other tactics....
Fun-loving and good natured, crystal dragons tend to be responsible rulers. They establish domains in the cold, open northern reaches, building castles out of snow and ice. They leave these castles open to the sky, for they love to watch the stars on clear, cold nights.'
Hatchlings have glossy white scales that become more and more translucent with age. By the time they reach adulthood, these scales become luminescent in moonlight. In the full light of the day they glow with a dazzling, almost unbearable brilliance.'
Like other benevolent dragons, the crystal dragons prefer to talk rather than fight. Even without special abilities, they can be charming and engaging to an extreme. Gems and metal ores are their foods of choice. A crystal dragon's breath weapon is a cone of glowing shards. The shards slice and cut those caught in the cone.
This Dragon's favorite elements are: Quartz, Ice, and Good Natures

Babies, Babies Everywhere!

Wow - seems like everyone I know is having a baby!
Well okay, maybe not everyone, but still lots of babies, and they're mostly first babies...
My cousin had hers several months ago, but I'm still counting him, 'cause he's absolutely gorgeous, and she's really enjoying being a mom. My girlfriend had her (2nd) baby a couple of months ago, my sister had hers last month (and we're meeting him next month - yippee!!!), my friend here had his baby this past week - another gorgeous baby, my children's cousin (ex-husband's niece) is about to have her baby, and so is my lawyer who handled my divorce.
See? Babies everywhere! :-)
Am I having "baby fever"? Hell, I've had that all my life! Nah, I have my two wonderful girls, and we're well past the baby stage. I definitely would have chosen to have at least two more children if circumstances had allowed it, but my life just didn't work out that way, and how can I regret that - I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be, and my girls are awesome.
Technically, I suppose I'm not too old yet to still have a baby, but in reality - yeah. I think I'm done. And I'm not exactly in a situation where the question is going to come up, anyway. LOL
But back to the new babies! Congratulations to all the new parents out there - it's gonna be the best adventure you've ever had! Enjoy it!

Pretty Day

Wow - the weather here is beautiful today! I love these days when we can have all of the windows open, end enjoy the fresh breeze! Why, I may even find myself finding something to do (gasp) outside! And I'm an indoor girl to the bone... But this is perfect weather to go walking with the kids. I hope everyone's having a lovely day!

In a Nutshell...

(This was part of an e-mail message that I received,
and I found it quite amusing, and truthful -- only I
don't live with one anymore, at least -- hooray!!!

April Fooled!

My, oh my! There I was, all excited about the future chapter of Guild Wars - they're just now going to be releasing chapter 2, in April, and on the wiki website was a bit about chapter 3: "Guild Wars Miners and Traders – Brand new hot news on campaign three!" with a link to a page that described the high points of this upcoming 2007 chapter.

It looked great! I e-mailed my friend who introduced me to Guild Wars in the first place, and he quickly straightened me out - reminded me of today's date, and the custom that goes with it.
Sadly, the news about chapter 3 was a fake (and yes, I'm waaay too gullible for my own good!), but chapter 2 is coming out soon, and we're ready to play it, and when the real chapter 3 does come out, it will be awesome anyway! So all is well. 8-D
