well it's tuesday here ...

... so that means that the WOW server is down, and will be for 8 hours.

Yes, I realize I'm pretty much addicted and don't have the time anymore to blog as much as I used to or, for that matter, to visit all of the blogs on my blogroll all that much either.

Oh well. Life changes. :P

In WOW news, my main character is progressing well, up to level 64 and almost enough gold to be able to purchase my epic mount. And yeah, I know that the vast majority of those who read my blog, of the few that are left, have no clue what any of that means.

Went to a friend's baby shower on Saturday. One of those progressive, both-sexes-invited things. The expectant mother is the mother of my twin godsons, and she's due in about two weeks. Some good chow, for snackish kinda food, and some fun games -- make a baby out of modeling clay, list as many songs with the word "baby" in the title.

Dinner tonight is roast beef (from a can) and microwave mashed taters (from Country Crock). Might not sound that great, but it's pretty fucking tasty.

There's another typhoon out in the area where the ones form that have a chance at hitting us, after this last one narrowly missed us. Fucking Bleah!

OK ... off to cook and do a couple chores. Ciao!

close call ...

Guam almost was hit by a typhoon.

But, luckily, it tracked more northernly.
