Roll the Bones

Rest in peace, Gary Gygax — sometime insurance agent, wargamer, groundbreaking game co-creator, Dungeonmaster, entrepreneur, novelist of sorts, and friendly guide to the D&D cartoon’s writers.

May the angels and St. Cuthbert come to meet you — and not with complaints about their stats.

Since Julie Wanted to Know

In the last few days before the election, I got a bunch of ads for McCain (not totally spam, since I gave the Grand Old Party my phone number), a bunch of ads for Other People, one ad for a deserving local levy, and about 5000 zillion polls. No ads for any form of TV.

I’m afraid that I gave in to temptation, and notified one poor live body that we have the right to a secret ballot. Sigh. I don’t really take proper advantage of all this Lenten mortification.

I did, however, attempt to pray the Rosary today while having my teeth cleaned. It is a spiritual exercise which chiefly leaves one with a great deal of respect for those martyrs and confessors who managed to pray or sing hymns whilst having far worse things perpetrated upon them.

Not That I Ever Vote or Get Nominated, But….

Doesn’t it make it a bit hard to vote, if you can’t even see the nominees until you log in to do the voting?

Well, Dang! This Can’t Be Right.

The Truth Laid Bear’s Ecosystem is currently being updated — a situation which is often a source of valuable egoboo. At the moment, it says that this blog is an Adorable Little Rodent (at #20759) and that Maria Lectrix is a Flappy Bird (#24205).

Wow. I think I’m getting an altitude headache already. :)

The Baby Has Landed

“Roger, Bettinellis. We copy you on the Net. You got a bunch of bloggers about to turn blue. We’re breathing again.”

Felicitations to all the Bettinellis and their extended family; and greetings to Sophia Terese, the newest parishioner in St. Blog’s!
