Wil Wheaton (no, really!) always

Wil Wheaton (no, really!) always has the most interesting quotes. “If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we would find in each man’s life a sorrow and a suffering enough to disarm all hostility.” ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow [cite] oh, and he’s gone to MT as well. I’ve asked Susanne if my account […]

we visited the BG clubs

we visited the BG clubs tech club yesterday – wow. they really did it. after having volunteered there, when the computers were all old & broken down, and the room was dilapidated as well, it’s pleasing – having been with Chad through all of his conversations with those guys a year, year & a half, […]

okay, so here’s the tupperware

okay, so here’s the tupperware story. last night, we went out to talk with some potential gamers – great conversation, and I’m thinking the gaming will go well once it starts. (grown-ups, and they are local!) then off to Fred Meyer for fun stuff like cat litter and new pillows. we get home around 9 […]
