I Love Being An Influence

So, last night, Di and I are heading to bed, and she walks to the kitchen real quick for some cold meds (sniffles...*SNORT*). As she comes back, she walks past Bug's door, which is slightly ajar, and tells me, when she returns, that he's talking to me in his SLEEP. To the best we can figure, he was talking about watching me play Neverwinter Nights, but bringing in stuff that he hadn't seen in months. Either way, it was still way cool. I just really like him being close to me. Beyond the fact that I'm a million times better for him than the chimpanzee that calls himself his father, it's also the closest I'll have to a son. SO it meant a lot to me.

On a lighter note, I wanna welcome a new reader of the War Journal, mery. Good to have ya 'round!

Running Stories

(*snagged from mery*)

Remember the book "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus"? Well, here's a prime example offered by an English professor at a U.S. University.

“Today we will experiment with a new form called the tandem story.
The process is simple. Each person will pair off with the person sitting to his or her immediate right. One of you will then write the first paragraph of a short story. The partner will read the first paragraph and then add another paragraph to the story. The first person will then add a third paragraph, and so on back and forth. Remember to reread what has been written each time in order to keep the story coherent. There is to be absolutely NO talking and anything you wish to say must be written on the paper.

The story is over when both agree a conclusion has been reached."
The following was actually turned in by two of my English students: Rebecca and Gary.

I ask you all to join me in this petition/movement. Not normally something I'd post, but how can you not be a part of the Masturbate For Peace movement? If your seed is spillin', there's no time for killin'.

Time to organize a wank-in. Like a tree beside the waters, we shall over-cum.
