Things I've Missed

So...I've been away from the blogs and the general interweb for a long time. I've been wallowing in the fictional worlds of warcraft and warcraftier and neither are healthy places for the unemployed and those prone to extended pity parties. I've also been playing Supreme Commander in case anyone cares. Of course you don't, forget I said anything.

Anywho...

I just heard about Dr. Horrible and his sing along and normally I hate musicals but I'll give this one a chance. I may have to download iTunes finally. I have avoided this for the same reason I avoid facebook and myspace and all those other sites: everything requires a separate damn password and login and wants all sorts of information about The Genius and his life. I don't mind people knowing about my life or whatever parts of my life that I choose to reveal on my blog, but keeping track of all the damn logins I have all created all over this system of tubes is a pain in the ass. Also, I don't have any damn money and I would just be tempted to spend notmoney on songs that I probably won't be able to find on iTunes anyway. Although, I did hear that The Moderate has some songs on iTunes "which just screams legitimacy" in the words of Jim Dempsey.

I have also begun enjoying The Guild, (FOR WHICH I MEANT TO THANK MDHATTER!!!) which I know sounds a lot like a heroin addict talking about how much he loves a twelve step program and methadone. Don't bother trying to click that link, their bandwidth has been obliterated by a link from Penny Arcade and it will probably be a week before that site is up again.

You'd have something to write about if you were coming to Chicago this weekend. Alas.

Chuckles said...

Von, there are some things I never write about because I can't do them justice in words.

You hate musicals???? Remind me why I showed you my favorite Ethiopian place whose existence you have repeatedly milked?

Von said...

Chuckles - get my email address from TheMarty and regale me with some tales.

Jennifer said...

Chuckles- every time I pluck one of the thousands of volunteer buckthorns that have seeded themselves in my yard, I think of you. You're Johnny Buckthorn, aren't you?

Adorable Girlfriend said...

No, if you don't come to Chi-town, you don't get the stories.

And I agree. Some things you cannot do justice with words. Hence your need to discuss your wang in a vain attempt. Oh never mind. AG should just be nice. :) :)

I've missed wishing you a happy birthday. Hope it was sweet.

Hi Chuck. Remember I owe you a snorkel.

On the house, natch.

Chuckles said...

I could use a snorkel right about now, too. I'm feeling a might peckish.
