Scorpion

In other (gaming) news...

Snuck in a little CoH last night (as I reactivated my account Monday, HOORAY.) Didn't get a lot done, teamed up with another fire blaster who was two levels higher than me. Ran through some missions with the sweet, sweet justice of burning all our foes to a crisp. Sorry, "arresting" them to a crisp. After we were done teaming, I went to sell and hit contacts, and who should I run into at the ass-end of Independence Port buyt my arch-nemesis Lusca. A few broadcasts and deaths later, and hello Devilfish badge for Burndown.

Also, my gaming group is putting together a Warhammer 40k megabattle for late May, which is dragging me out of retirement. I love me some megabattles, even if I'm not a huge fan of 40k these days. Want to get my figs more or less all painted for the affair, though, so nose to the grindstone time. Luckily my lovely girlfriend is more or less OK with me painting while she reads the book club book out loud to me.

"You know the administration's argument: We are slowly making progress in Iraq, but the media are so fixated on car bombs and suicide attacks they never get around to reporting that. I would suggest this line is growing dated. The war has aroused a growing number of critics who have nothing to do with the MSM and can't by any stretch be called liberal. When Republicans and former military men are ripping the Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld handling of the war, I'd say that Houston, we have a problem. My only question in these matters: What took them so long?"
