News of the Day

I was in a pretty good mood this morning. I unlocked a couple new characters in the video game I was playing last night, I skipped the gym this morning and slept in (because I'm playing badminton tonight and I don't want to be too tired) and G-Fresh made breakfast for us both this morning - it was looking like a good day.

Then I read my favorite blogs.

Leave it to Maximus, our local indy music reporter and harbinger of doom, to damage my calm with truth...

Seems the House of Representatives wants to stop homegrown terrorists. You know, those crazy radicals who publicly disagree with the government, or think about disagreeing with the government, or listen to radio on the internet where other people disagree with the government... Read up on the "Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007" (HR 1955) - it's scary.

In other news, we got a package yesterday at the Black Vatican. No - it wasn't our regular pr0n shipment (that comes on Thursdays), nor was it another of that other Vatican's many attempts to convert/poison/blow me up...

It was preserves and pumpkin butter from our #1 Fangirl, Mayren! While on her recent trip to Solvang she kept us in mind. Her dedication is both touching and tasty!

Turning now to sports. The local Flock played wallyball last night for the first time. Wallyball is a volleyball variant, played in a handball court. The back wall and ceiling are out of bounds on the serve; after that, pretty much everything goes, including sidewall spikes, and hard bumps into the ceiling that become attacks. Aside from repeatedly getting hit in the head, I liked it. It's not a replacement for handball or badminton, but it might be a fun way to work on my volleyball skills once a week.

So - what's new in your world? Please report your beginnings, ends, discoveries, disappointments and the like. Obviously, nothing much is happening around here...

I too play some games last night. And then I worked on the comic. And now I'm at work drinking water with Propel powder packets in it. That's it.

Alright fine. I get it. The gauntlet has been thrown down by Mayren. It's on now. You just wait 'till I go back to Chucktown for XMas... you.just.wait.

Ooh - a Present War! This is going to be awesome. Flynn - hurry up and update our Amazon wishlists!

Mayren said...

WNG - I don't have to throw down the gauntlet. When it comes to me there is no contest. I win. (wink)
((heheheheeh now i'm gonna duck out of WNG's way- muahahahah))

WNG said...

Mayren, Mayren, Mayren... pride goeth before the trip dpwn the stairs, sweetie. Oops! I didn't see you there!
That's what you get for baiting the G.
I don't need an Amazon wishlist boys, I've got super powers (and Mama G's baking skillz)

Mayren said...

WNG - ok that's not fair!
I can't compete with Mama G's Baking skillz!

Really though - I just sent stuff to the boys because one of them is from So.Cal. and mentioned he hadn't seen it in awhile. I didn't think it was designated it a "Fan" thing to do. I was just being a friend.
So WNG - you win. You are fangirl #1 and a good friend. Total Package Gal.

WNG said...

I don't want to win - just play :)I'll send you stuff too, Mayren. Honestly it's either that or gain 150 lbs over the week and a half I'll be home.

TREATS FOR EVERYONE!!!

Mayren said...

WNG- oooo - we should start swapping recipes of our faves to try out! I don't mean just the recipes we post. I mean those recipes that local peeps ask you to make once in awhile. *yummmmmy*

WNG said...

Sounds good, Mayren! We'll figure it out when I get back from HS Reunion Hell :)

His Sinfulness said...

Peace treaty. I love how my Flock gets along... :)

Mayren said...

I luv my WNG too much to ever be seriously aggro against her. Duh.
She's too cute to be mean to. Remember that.
