Or so it seems. I really don’t mean to wait so long between posts, but it seems to happen every month. Here’s a quick update on what’s going on in my world.
- New job is still great and I’m loving the travel. I hit Silver with Hilton and am over halfway to Silver with Delta, hoping some more trips to the West coast before year end will get me there.
- Bought a new car!! I hope to have pictures up soon, though I’m guessing it will be Thanksgiving when I have a good chance to take some. Thanks to my parents looking out for a sweet deal while I was scrounging around Atlanta, Dad test drove and fell in love with an awesome car. According to the family it fits me and I’ve loved every minute of it. 2004 Nissan 350Z Roadster, silver with black leather interior, touring package, and well maintained with a great warranty. I have loved these cars ever since I witnessed one beat the snot outta other cars during a drift racing demonstration. A stock 350Z with half the lap time as other heavily modded drifters. I love it.
- Warhammer Online hasn’t kept me excited enough to play regularly and I’m not sure if I’m losing interest in MMORPGs or what. I’ve kept up with City of Heroes/Villains and hit another milestone a couple weeks ago in Veteran Rewards.
- I bought Red Alert 3 last week and have been playing it whenever I get a chance. I don’t like the graphics as well as Command & Conquer 3, but I love the new Co-op Campaign options and the new faction Empire of the Sun. The online game play menus have been streamlined and connections are smoother than with previous C&C games – good thing since we can’t run co-op campaigns over Hamachi/LAN.
- I’ve continued my addiction with Arkham Horror – board game based off Cthulu mythos and H.P. Lovecraft stories. It is absoulutely amazing – I can’t remember the last time I had this much fun playing a board game (Clue perhaps).
- I’ve been getting more involved with the local music scene and have been impressed by several – Kristin Tinsley & Aclarion. Kristin has a great voice and performs solo with her acoustic guitar and original songs, as well as some classics. Aclarion is reminiscent of Incubus, Pantera, Deftones, and Nine Inch Nails, but with a style all their own. Depending on your tastes (or a mixture if you’re like me) I suggest checking these artists out and see if you can catch Kristin and Aclarion live in concert.
- I am expanding the Shadowrun storyline I’m working up for the RPG group I run with in Murfreesboro, TN. I’m utilizing one of my unused websites Peacekeeper Productions for a web portal to expand our game time between monthly sessions. This will allow us to handle character maintenance and solo sessions without slowing down the group, especially when we can’t meet regularly and time is a factor.
