Oops, I misread your header. It says "DON'T be a dick." My bad!

::puts on horns and grabs a pitchfork:: Wouldn't you rather be playing MTGO? Plenty of time to write that keynote speech later. Pleeeenty of time....

Speaking of irrationality, I'm originally from the Pacific Northwest (the "extreme left edge of Canada" as another poster so eloquently put it) but am now living in Florida. Surrounded by water, and I still miss the Pacific.

Memories of the Futuremug Space Jellyfish pudding!! I am laughing out loud. That is SO not going to make any sense when I try to explain it to my wife.

I hear and obey. After 25 years of "I wanna be a writer" I finally decided to switch that on over to "I'm gonna be a writer". So I decided to tackle National Novel Writing Month (or NaNo). The goal is to write 50,000 words in 30 days and it is a perfect example of just letting yourself go, shutting off the 'can't's and just Being Excited and Making. It's made me love writing again. And I currently have 30,000+ words of a novel that (after hitting the 50K goal and editing) I'm going to shop out. Yay!

I got to thinking about the title of this post. I was alive, well, and geeky in the 80's. For the life of me I can't imagine what I did without teh interwebs back then. It seems possible that I might have gone outside every once in a while, though my almost 40-year-old self finds that hard to comprehend. I didn't go to a lot of cons; I don't think I was really a very sociable kind of person in those days, when being a geek meant you were the one the preppies picked on. Most of my social interaction was through gaming groups and comic stores, which I suppose must have been the networking sites of the age. And while I'm nostalgic for hanging out in the comic shop with my friends, I wouldn't go back - because a life where I can't log on to my computer and (in)directly interact with someone like Wil Freakin' Wheaton (you know, that guy who was on Star Trek!) is not a life I want.
