I haven't eaten in a Chik-Fil-A in over three years. Not because I don't like their food but because I don't like their business decisions. If a person donates money to causes that I don't agree with, that's their free speech right. If a business donates money to causes I don't believe in, that is not a free speech right. That is a bad business decision. I don't support places with bad food, bad service or bad business plans.

It is also SBJ day for those of us that hate math :) Which could be why is connected to pi. After Steak and a BJ pi is a nice dessert.

/snicker. That is so going on the table for the Tuesday night game. As a matter of fact that threat was made after 3 people in our game Sunday rolled 1's in a row. The fourth person was very very worried when the rest of us turned toward him.

I'll have to tell my kid about this one :) We've been watching the "I love the new millennium" on VH1 and now she likes the grown up you as much as she liked the kid in "Stand by Me".

One of the great perks of bookstore working is actually getting to check out books pre-release so you can talk about them intelligently on release day. So there was a mad dash of checking out the 4th edition core books. Tonight will be the third night of play running a basic campaign out of the DM guide. So thoughts so far are thus: Night one—Rolling up characters with one player guide for four people is a bad idea, but we were stuck as we can only get one book each and we needed the DM guide for my spouse to run the thing. There are changes for sure everyone in the group kept getting bloodied by kobolds because the hit points changed (15hps+ strength not 15hps + strength modifier) Lots of dumb moments when your brain says one thing and your book says another. With only a couple days lead time we decide to use a pre-made out the back of the book and make it all the way through the first room after rolling up. Our normal House rules still work pretty well with the new setup. The rolls are pretty basic (d20 initiative, 1D10 + mod for damage) and understandable and nothing seems really broken or warped so far. At will (use as much as you want) powers are sweet! Encounter powers are slightly more powerful than at will and Daily powers are pretty much major beat down (Brute Strike does 3 weapon damage plus your strength mod). Biggest complaint—not a lot of variety in races/classes, but being the first books that’s pretty normal. Night 2—Everyone has their own book which makes it a lot easier than passing one around when you have questions. We’ve all gotten a chance to read our classes which works well to. We tweak our characters a bit, and make it though the next 3 rooms of the dungeon. Really smooth comparable to the last night. Everyone seems to be having fun. The level one stuff seems a bit hard, but not undoable. Biggest complaint—The books don’t seem to be dry. The ink bleeds and its really annoying.

My brain has been running "Blame Canada" on a continuous loop all day today in preparation for the news stories about GTA4. The game stores here have to try and be the gestapo because invariably some parent is going to blame them when they walk in on the "Warm Coffee" achievement... I'm just looking for Wil...
