weekend fast approaching
–15 July— Holy Crap!! And another one! They’re back with a vengence.
No roleplaying today due to the dm leaving for icon. NM, i got work to do on the module anyways.
Someone whose opinion i trust has said that War of the Worlds was great… yay! I can’t wait to see it. Might go this weekend. We’ll see what happens. I don’t think anything else much is going on given that everyone is at ICON.
I’ve booked in for some leave to make next weekend a long weekend. Just in time, before a mad month starts with some go live dates. Ouch. It also gives me the whole friday to polish the module prior to saturday’s play test. And monday to incorporate any suggested changes.
Back on the subject of adverts that irritate me. That nivea lotion ad where the women are squirming all over the place, rubbing the bottle against themselves and playing bad air-guitar. Nivea Body Nourishing Lotion. Now with E.
And here’s my favourite candidate for this year’s darwin awards:
Based on a bet by the other members of his threesome, Everitt Sanchez tried to wash his own “balls” in a ball washer at the local golf course. Proving once again that beer and testosterone are a bad mix, Sanchez managed to straddle the b all washer and dangle his scrotum in the machine. Much to his dismay, one of his buddies upped the ante by spinning the crank on the machine with Sanchez’s scrotum in place, thus wedging them solidly in the mechanism. Sanchez, who immediately passed his threshold of pain, collapsed and tumbled from his perch.
unfortunately for Sanchez, the height of the ball washer was more than a foot higher off the ground than his testicles are in a normal stance, and the scrotum was the weakest link. Sanchez’s scrotum was ripped open during the fall, and one testicle was plucked from him forever and remained in the washer, while the other testicle was compressed and flattened as it was pulled between the housing of the washer, and the rotating machinery inside. To add insult to injury, Sanchez broke a new $300 driver that he had just purchased from the pro shop, and was using to balance himself. Sanchez was rushed to the hospital for surgery, and the remaining threesome were asked to le ave the course. NOTE: This last one wouldn’t normally count, because the idiot didn’t die. But because he cannot reproduce as a result of his qualifying act of stupidity, we have allowed it.
