I am SOOOOO jealous reading all of your posts. I didn't know about the JOCO cruise and we booked ours about 3 weeks before it. We will be cruising again next year and I want to get the timing right this time and so will be anxious to hear when the JCCC3 is scheduled. Looking forward to being a SeaMonkey!

Speaking for myself and quoting someone in the know - 2008 was an "Awesome Year"! The blog has been great to follow this year. I nearly danced with joy (ok ok there was a jig or two performed with a definite squee of delight) when I received 197/300. The Velvet Crusher...well what else are friends for? Watching the Floyd performance was scary-velous and gave me a new appreciation for having to get your head into your work. I am looking forward to seeing what happens around this neighborhood in 2009!

This news brings tears to the eye of a 'personal stranger' who nevertheless feels a remote friendship. Mr. Gygax's death is a great loss. Reading most of your posts makes me feel like an 'old' gamer as I didn't discover the joys of RPGs until I was in my early 30's and introduced to D&D by my nephews who came to stay the weekend with their cousins. After about an hour of listening to the 'kids' (12-16 years) this old lady asked if she could roll up her own character and join. Talk about some freaked out kids! That first game was great and had me hooked. I went on to play and host many a D&D weekend at our house for anywhere from 2 to8 players. My husband would chase us all off to bed around 6am and breakfast 'at Aunty's Inn' The games and all night weekends at Aunt Shanon's house still remain topics of conversation and fond memories when the 'kids' all have the rare chance to get together now 15 years later! So long Gary! Campaign Complete.

Just ordered my copy! I have been waiting all this time for the hardback release and was horribly afraid that I would not be back online in time to purchase - I look forward to reading THDoOL and recapturing a bit of that timeline that you always bring with your stories. Thank you!

Gibsonesque...deeper, darker, compressed and concise. This tidbit would entice me into larger bytes.

Fruit fetish - that one returns way too many weird hits on the search engine. I can however relate to the maniacal laughter episode - just had one of those because 'Incredible Edible' aka Incredible EDbeale is willing to dress up like food for money!

Stopping to appreciate the the beauty amidst the chaos is what makes life special...not a lot of folks would've taken that moment.

I was thinking about the story last night as the neighborhood lit up with multiple firework displays - I wondered what other youngsters were being put to the test in this time honored rite of passage into 'grup'hood. Great story to read again!
