Dream 1) Victorian Mystery with the stranger hunting us down one by one.  Hiding under the deck, then defeating him with logic in the upstairs tea sitting type area.

Dream 2) Hot Dogs and the Manager.  We felt so strongly about the buns being better the way we made them that we took it to the manager, and all the employees got fired.  I stuck up for myself and the team, then promptly woke up before I found out if I was fired or not.

Dream 3) Cupcake Bake-off in a hotel.  We won, but there was sabotage, team switching, and uncooked product.  The other team thought we would be mad, and I made a point not to be since it was only cupcakes.

Lessons learned. 1) ride out a storm you can't handle and approach it with another angle.  2) team is everything.  stick up for them, it's worth it to make change.  3) don't be an asshole to your competition.

It's a Monday.  Time to rebuild on those habits I let slip. This is about ME.  It's my site, and my life and my notes.  If you're reading this, it's the inside of my head, pretty well unfiltered and random.  Take it as you will.

Well, I've given myself a large enough sandbox to start designing and developing a new game to play away from work.  Click the readmore to check out the new map.

Thanks to my brother and his birthday present to me, I am now armed with the newest (again) version of Dungeons and Dragons that's out there.  I'm digging the new rules although it's a bit disappointing that they don't mesh as well as I had hoped with the D&D Next beta for 5th.  I completely understand the need for the changes they did make though.

I've been developing the World of Caudor ever since I had my first edition DM's Guide in 1979.  I'm hoping to finally get it out of my head and into the wild.  I've got a generator idea for random dungeons that I need to develop for DMless play too.

Here's to the kick-off.

Side Note: I am subscribed to www.roleplayingtips.com 's email.  Informative and inspirational.  You should be too. :)

So I'm involved with "the" property boundary issue still.  There's a portion of "her" fence on our property from the last time I had to cut the fence down.  I could leave it alone, but at the very least, in 19 years (unless laws change) the property she's fenced off that's ours automatically and without compensation, becomes hers, free and clear. 

I have a problem with that.

I want to design websites with user interfaces like these.  For whatever reason, they excite & inspire me. -- and I have yet to see the movie.

I have a Microsoft Professional certification, Dell certifications, HP certifications, Cisco training and all that jazz.  I spent a lot of time on getting those and have a lot of experience maintaining those.  I apply them to my business. -- where I get paid for what I do.

Robin Williams took his own life today, the media telling us his choice to end his life was due to a battle with depression.  When do you make that decision final?  When do you know it's time, or past the time, and you can justify deep down that it's the right thing for you to do.

Depression and suicidal thoughts are more common than everyone thinks at one point or another I'm sure, and I sincerely doubt it's being brought to the surface as often as it needs to be addressed.

Apologies for the following ramble if you read on. ;)
