Spring. I love Spring. I love the weather, all the plants and animals peaking out from their winter hiding places, opening the windows… all this love for Spring. Why doesn’t Spring love me? I’m totally sick right now, and I think it has something to do with pollen. I’ve never had issues with allergies, however my throat and lungs are totally icked up right now. ick ick ick.
Being a part-time freelancer, today is one of my home days where I catch up on work for other things, do website stuff, make puppets, and other such things. At what point does one give ones-self a sick day?
An interesting thing has been happening lately. First of all, I should tell you about the awesome thing that’s been happening, and then we can go into the interesting thing. Awesome thing = Little Miss Gamer videos are being shown on ThatGuyWithTheGlasses.com. They’ve been up there for a while, but I haven’t been that great about posting blog entries here, so if you didn’t know before, now you do. Done and done.
The interesting thing = thatguywiththeglasses.com has been posting new episodes and then also occasionally posting old episodes as well. A few months ago we decided to stop doing the viewer mail segments on the show. It was felt that they were making the show too long and that overall it wasn’t what folks were tuning in to see. Interestingly, as folks have been watching (or rewatching) some of these older episodes I have been getting quite a few comments about how awesome the viewer mail segment of the show is. Did we make a mistake? Should we bring it back? What do you think?
There are some nights when I can’t sleep. Or rather – I can’t really seem to find the motivation to go to bed to even begin to try to sleep. Tonight is one of those nights. I’m literally procrastinating sleep. This can’t be good. The internet has sucked me into its evil dark soul, and now as the hour of 3am draws nearer – I’m starting to think of all the repercussions that this will have on my life when I finally do wake up in the morning. hrumph. I suppose I should trudge off and at least try to doze a bit. I have to say though, that there is something weirdly satisfying about staying up late. Maybe it’s because you weren’t allowed to as a kid.
Sometimes it can be rewarding to do something as an adult – just because you can.
Why hello internet!
This weekend I’m romping about in good ol’ Long Island at ICon. It’s my second year at the Sci-Fi Gaming Con and I am totally psyched to be here. I got in last night, did a couple panels, checked out the dealer room, and plan to do a repeat of that today – while possibly taking some time to crash the kids wand-making workshop at 2:00, cause really, how cool is that?!?

FRIDAY 7pm @ SCC A115
The Nintendo Wii: Why I’m Playing or Why I Won’t
SATURDAY 12pm @ SCC A323
