Indecision 2008 ala Gary Gygax

Ondigo sent me this totally awesome link that puts the 2oo8 election players into terms that those of us of a geekier nature can readily understand.

from Somehedgehog:

Adventuring Party Politics: The Campaign is Getting Ugly

GM: OK, the bugbear attacks you. What do you do?

OBAMA: I send one of my 672 henchmen after it.

MCCAIN: OK, seriously. Why does he have so many henchmen? I'm a level 72 ranger and he's only a level 8 paladin.

OBAMA: Well, if you'd bought the Grassroots Organizing and Oratory/Colgate Smile proficiencies you could min max it so that you...

MCCAIN: Why is he even IN this campaign? I thought this was supposed to be a high level party.

OBAMA: Well, maybe some people got tired of the grim and squinty "Matterhorn, son of Marathon" shtick you keep doing. Dude, could you be any less original?

MCCAIN: Oh my god, I did not leave my left nut in a tiger cage in the Tomb of Horrors to spend my Friday nights mopping up after the new kid.

OBAMA: "My friends, I am a totally unoriginal grizzled character class stereotype. I should lead the party because I have more testicular damage than that one."

MCCAIN: Yeah, well, you pal around with dark elves.


See the entire post here. You won't be sorry.

For those of you who for some reason don't get the gazebo reference, check out this link.

Okay...here's the deal, my good friend Deb (okay..i'm not certain anymore how good a friend she is) forwarded me this link to the sneeze's review of the gastronomic sensation of Cuitlacoche.

I have many foodie friends. I am reasonable certain that none of them would try this nastiness.

Repeat after me... Mold on food is a disease, NOT a delicacy

(Cheese is, of course, the exception that proves the rule.)

I will NOT post the pictures. If your stomach is strong, you may follow the link. Please do not check it out around meal time. You will be sorry if you do not heed my warning.

The Evil League of Evil is now taking applications!

As I noted earlier, the EVE website would be taking application for membership soon. Well apparently, soon is now. The deadline to submit your video application is October 10, so get cracking.

I can only dream about being evil enough to hobnob with my hero, Dr. Horrible. I'd be lucky to get a job as a Henchman (henchwoman? henchperson? hmmm.. definitely Henchman.)

In any event, are you looking to get me a Christmas pressie? I rarely wear t-shirts, but I could make an exception for one of these!

UPDATE: According to syphyportal.com, the top 10 applications will appear on the Dr. Horrible DVD. Are you horrible enough?

Who's your Harry Potter Husband?

My result for The Harry Potter Husband Test...

Mrs. Snape

Your perfect HP man is Severus Snape.

You like a guy of loyalty and intelligence and don't really mind if he comes across as a bit harsh. Or a bit bastardy. Or if he happens to terrify every child who crosses his path. The point is that under that rough exterior lies...well, a rough interior. But under that is a soft, squishy center and you don't mind at all that you're the only person in the world who gets to see it.

Take The Harry Potter Husband Test at HelloQuizzy

The really funny thing is...the test is pretty accurate! I've had a crush on Severus Snape ever since I read my first Harry Potter Book!

BTW--Wendybird's HP Husband is Neville Longbottom! He would be my second choice :)

Thanks Karen Sweety for the link
