I never want to do that again…most stressful process of my life. But I have a house to make up for it…so there’s that I guess. 🙂

I went to the con on Saturday August 11th in downtown Seattle. It was a lot of fun! I went to two panels: One was about playing games with geek kids, and the other was about the rampant misogyny/sexism thrown at female gamers/bloggers/etc online. Both were very interesting 🙂 And now I want to play Guild Wars 2 when it comes out…
Play tested “Sidekick Quests” which is a tabletop rpg for gradeschoolers. Was pretty fun 🙂 I was a squire with a club. I bludgeoned monster flowers to death.
I also played SPANC (Space pirate amazon ninja cat-girls)…which was a lot of fun, but it wasn’t available to buy there which was a shame because it was hilarious.
I imagine I’ll go next year as well…maybe with a booth of my own for my books. 🙂
That are clearly spam, but they are hilariously written. Like seriously, do you honestly think that I would ever click your link? Or that my “bundle of information” is clearly something that “needs to be shared with the world so please respond to my strange email that is mostly made out of numbers”…are you kidding? Really?
I wonder how much time they devote to crafting these messages + how much they get paid. If they get paid by click-backs then they need to seriously up their game. Or maybe they’re made from computer programs that surf the web and string together sentences that they’ve found to statistically go together.
Every so often there’s a clever one in the bunch though…so I guess they’re learning?
Either way, I get a laugh every time I skim through my spam.
I lose myself in these when I get writer’s block, or if my wrists are killing me and I can’t write even when I want to. Note some of these have NSFW stuff in them. So you’ve been warned!

http://hamletmachine.tumblr.com/ this one can get very NSFW. Mmm…nsfw.
My mother, father, and I watch the show Grimm. We enjoy the show (Monroe is an awesome character).
What we cannot fathom is why anyone likes Sgt Wu. Seriously…he’s not funny, he sticks out like a sore thumb anytime he is in a scene, and why for the love of God is he getting scenes/camera shots to himself? He’s not a main character, he’s a side character and he’s poor at acting as even that. His one liners are shitty (that’s the writer, but still it’s his delivery). He has no charisma. I do not believe for a second that he’s a cop, I see him and I see an actor acting as a cop.
Biggest peeve – he has scenes where he’s explaining or showing the detectives how to do things? As if they don’t know how to find a license plate on a car? WTF? That doesn’t make any sense. Writers…what are you doing? Has the guy slept with someone, blackmailed someone, sold his soul to the devil?
Get him out of all of the scenes, put him back where he started out as, a character that showed up 1 or 2 times to drop off results or a test.
Also…he cannot be the first responder at every crime scene in Portland day and night. If he is then he’s a clone or has robots of himself wandering around the city. That by the way…that would be interesting and would make his character way better. Right now he’s a godawful annoyance and he gets noticed in every scene he’s in…in a bad way.
Best two shows of the season were the ones he wasn’t in. Okay, rant done.
