I know at least a few of the people who are on my friends list game in one respect or another and now I've got a question for you.

I've recently started playing on a RP-centric Neverwinter Nights 2 server, and, seeing as I was basically a RP-virgin 2 weeks ago when I first started on that server, I was hoping some of you had suggestions of how to develop characters, and tips and tricks for successful role playing. Do you have any favored readings? Hints for a newbie? Other pearls of wisdom for me?



Merry Solstice!

Merry Solstice, everyone!

Stay warm, and enjoy this longest night of the year.

Happy Yule!


Snow dogs!

New England's been plastered with 2 big snowstorms this weekend, dropping at least 24" of snow, and counting. We've got two Aussies, who absolutely adore the snow. They've been outside all day for hours at a time. When we've finally dragged them back in side, it's not even 5 minutes until they're begging to go back out!

I gots the Frisbee and you cant catch me!  Nyah!
Pippin says: I gots the Frisbee and you can't catch me! Nyah!

Then Nemo gets the frisbee and...

Haha, I got the frisbee now, Pippin, whacha gunna do about it!?!
Nemo: Haha, I got the frisbee now, Pippin, whacha gunna do about it!?!

Look, Mum, I gots it!
Nemo: Look, Mum, I gots it!

Pipping standing still for just a moment...

...but standing still doesnt last long before hes back off to the races!

History in the making. 1 million people in Grant Park. Listening to President-Elect Barack Obama I'm filled with hope. So full of hope, he reminds me of FDR and Bobby Kennedy. He is going to be great. A great man, A great leader, a Great Man, the likes of which we haven't seen in this position in a very very long time.

It's over! Good job, President Obama!

That's it, it's over folks. With OH being called, and CNN having 207 electoral votes for Obama, with out CA, OR, WA, or HI (another 77 votes), it's shored up. Obama has over 284 votes. He's won!

This is history in the making, folks! The first black man as president. Record turnout, the likes of which we haven't seen, percentage of eligible voters wise, since 1908 or before.

I see potential to be a great president, on the order of FDR, and I hope he's able to pull it off.

For now, I'm ecstatic. The champagne has been broken out and I am so relieved and excited!

It's Election Day!

Everyone remember to vote today!

I voted this morning (For Obama/Biden). I was voter number 111 for my precinct at 8am, which considering it's TINY and usually has very few voters, is amazing.

I'm so excited, today is the cumulation of a very historic election, and I can't wait to see the results. I'm sure I'll be up terribly late tonight and hopefully celebrating. :D

Newb's range report.

I went shooting with Bill and JayG on Sat and LOVED it. I posted a full report with pictures on the new blog: http://cai11ean.wordpress.com/2008/09/01/newbies-range-report/

Jay's got a write-up on his blog: http://stuckinmassachusetts.blogspot.com/2008/09/new-shooter-report.html

Just a taste of of the fun:



I just watched Barak Obama’s acceptance speech. I’m impressed. Up til this point, he hasn’t impressed me, but after tonight, I’m beginning to think that maybe, just maybe, he can pull off the change he speaks of. Perhaps, just perhaps, if (no, when) Mr. Obama becomes president, there will be an administration in place who’s ideals are not completely foreign to my own, and who actually has the good of the common man and the country in mind. Perhaps, just perhaps, we aren’t completely fucked.

Up until tonight, my cynicism had thoroughly gotten the better of me; having spent the vast majority of my adult life in Massachusetts — one of the most corrupt states in the country — it’s hardly surprising. Until tonight, I was convinced Mr. Obama was just another pie-in-the-sky dreamer, spouting pretty words, hopes and dreams, with no realistic idea of how to make them reality nor any grasp of the work and struggle needed to do so. After tonight’s speech, I’m far more confident he understands how enormous a task it will be to accomplish even a fraction of the change he desires to bring to our country. Tonight, as he annihilated McCain with his own words, he finally seemed to have grown into the office he’ll be elected to in November. I finally felt like I was watching a great leader, the likes of which I’ve never seen (alive) in American politics.

I’m hopeful. I’m actually hopeful about the future of this country and our leadership. I haven’t been hopeful about either in a very very long time. I had given up. I was convinced there was no good fight left to fight. After tonight, I’m not quite so sure that’s true, and it feels good.
