Sunday, STILL didn't do anything except clean, for the most part. Highlight of the night was teknoerotoskizm stopping by as she and 01flux were headed to Vancouver to see VNV Nation...AGAIN. Hope y'all had a blast!
Got the Kult game started, with caliban and rayce. Did like I normally do on game openings, which boils down to 'pulled it out of my ass'. Seems to have gone over well, players definitely did not want to stop. I, however, am a big believer in the cliffhanger...always leave them hungry. We cut a little early to watch Snatch...damn, I love that flick.
From the Washington Post Style Invitation, it was postulated that English should have male and male nouns, and readers were asked to assign a gender to nouns of their choice - and explain their reason. These were the best submissions:
SWISS ARMY KNIFE -- male, because even though it appears useful for a wide variety of work, it spends most of its time just opening bottles.
KIDNEYS -- female, because they always go to the bathroom in pairs.
PENLIGHT -- male, because it can be turned on very easily, but isn't very bright.
TIRE -- male, because it goes bald and often is over-inflated.
HOT AIR BALLOON: male, because to get it to go anywhere you have to light a fire under it... and, of course, there's the hot air part.
SPONGES -- female, because they are soft and squeezable and retain water.
WEB PAGE -- female, because it is always getting hit on.
SHOE -- male, because it is usually unpolished, with its tongue hanging out.
COPIER -- female, because...(1) once turned off, it takes a while to warm up, (2) it is an effective reproductive device when the right buttons are pushed, and (3) Because it can wreak havoc when the wrong buttons are pushed.
ZIPLOC BAGS -- male, because they hold everything in, and you can always see right through them.
SUBWAY -- male, because it uses the same old lines to pick people up.
HOURGLASS -- female, because over time, the weight shifts to the bottom.
HAMMER -- male, because it hasn't evolved much over the last 5,000 years, but it's still handy to have around - and is good for killing bugs.
