Topic Tuesday's Child is full of grace, 12 June 12
Not sure why that little poem popped into my head this morning.
Monday's child is fair of face
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go,
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for a living,
But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day
Is bonny and blithe and good and happ-ay.
(I suspected that last word would get eaten by the filters, so it's edited.)
I'm a Monday child. Siblings are Thursday, Sunday, Wednesday, and Sunday. My children are Saturday and Tuesday. I think we all took Friday SERIOUSLY as a rest day. ^_~
In other silliness, I have the pleasure *COUGH* of helping maintain the Sentinels Wiki (sentinelswiki.net). Mainly what that means is logging in every day or two and checking the new users and posts. Which is 99% of the time some sort of weird stuff that is a waste of their time and mine.
New users with names like GabrielRowe6 upload images that have nothing to do with anything and pair them with articles that sound like someone barfed up a bunch of words, sometimes English, but no guarantees. This little treasure showed up this morning hidden among several others:
Give me all your love boy You could be my boy you could be fast and easy payday loan my boy toy
I tell ya, the chuckle is a good way to start the morning.
And in more randomness, the name Gabriel reminded me of an "early" computer game I played. Not really really early - but early in the sense of being fully graphical. Who remembers the Gabriel Knight series? I played the second, The Beast Within, by going to my brothers' apartment after work before he'd get home and settling in at his computer. We also had Rainbow 6 LAN parties with both brother's and a friend. By sitting in separate rooms, we'd end up laughing pretty hysterically if one of us got ambushed and started cussing. Well, it being wee hours of the morning probably influenced the hysteria.
>.> Which brings up another crazy memory. One of my brothers and I shared an apartment for some time. We had the first Tomb Raider game and were so involved we were still playing at like 3 am. We came into a room with water to swim across and he dove in (at this point I was watching and he was playing). Halfway across a croc surfaced and gave chase. We both screamed. We were laughing after. Then 20 minutes later we get a knock on the door.
A neighbor called the cops on us.
Oy, gaming memories. And I haven't even touched on the limited D&D games back in the late 80s. Or the multi-player online starship game in text in the early 90s.
Oh, and I'm a real slacker. Almost 12 hours of playing and FINALLY in Diablo 3 have I reached Act II. I did briefly try a monk, but man has Demon Hunter got me spoiled.
I really do need to set aside some time to finish things up in WOW to prepare for the next expansion. But since I don't see the general WOW population ever losing the greed mindset, I may not even stick around too long after that. To be seen.
Good morning Sentinels!

I think what amused me most ... for not knowing anything, he's doing the one thing most clueless people don't. He's wearing safety goggles.
How did we never think to look at that information growing up? Or my daughter with her "have fun with astrology" mindset never mention that. Hmmmm.
<.< I was also born under a new moon and my oldest daughter under a full moon. Trippy.

Well, I don't turn 18 for another month so technically I did. Although, I admittedly wouldn't have cared to do so unless I read this thread and went to look at a calendar to see what day of the week it was.
This is an animal that CHOOSES to drink out of toilets, sniff fellow animal's nether regions by way of introduction, and can and does reach ~there~ with a tongue. How is that any different?
