    Get well, then.

    There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead.

    I'd offer some of my blood but I know what's in it and let's just say you're better off with whatever they have down there.

    Being kept up by a gnarly headache. I blame it on a pack of horror writing cannibals driving me into zombie-infested woods with their hunger for newbie meat. Juuuust sayin'...

    That said, I'm sending my absolute best wishes to you and yours, night-flyer.

    Morning, Hounds. I went rollerskating yesterday for the first time in 17 years. Enjoyed myself so much, I'm going to try and go back this morning.

    After coffee, of course.

    Just the thought of roller-skates and I need aspirin. I don't move like I used to. :/

    I love taking my kids to the local roller rink, but I'm always too timid to skate. I'm too old for it now, I think. Falling over has more consequences than it used to.

    Ted, did you know I'm an ordained minister in the Church of Universal Life with a Doctor of Divinity and a Doctor of Philosophy in Religion degree from them?

    Maybe I should put that on my resume...

    Greg, I had no idea. How in the world did that come about? I just want to get my license so I can perform my friend's wedding. He loves my ideas about doing it as a Branch Tedian affair but she isn't so keen on all my ideas. The blood fountain was one of them. Also, she's hesitant about the midgets. I have no idea why--women confuse me.

    Ted- Maybe she wants something unique? Pretty sure Martha Stewart featured that wedding on her show last season. Instead of midgets, try blood-soaked giants!

    I did it as a joke, mainly, to stick a thorn in the side of my ex-stepfather and his <ahem> partner because they claimed to be such completely devout Christians and prided themselves on their "spirituality" and "holiness". They lied, cheated, and stole from the company my ex-stepfather owned and I was trying to save from bankruptcy all the while.

    Buffoons. They destroyed hundreds of dollars of my CDs because they were "evil" (AC/DC, etc), burned my collection of SPI and Avalon Hill wargames (which are valued in the hundreds if not thousands today), melted down almost a full division of 15mm hand-painted American Civil War miniatures and 1/285th scale modern armor (also hand-painted), and destroyed an Epic: 40K collection (also hand-painted and a couple of which were gifts to me from a fellow gamer who'd gone all out on those models) that would be worth over a thousand dollars today. They burned a copy of Fletcher Pratt's Naval Wargame for crying out loud in their zeal.

    All while I was elsewhere involved at court or with the IRS or with the CPA or our lawyer trying to save their worthless asses by saving their company.

    My ex-stepfather stiffed my mother when he sold their house (twice, once for one property, once for another).

    My ex-stepfather and his partner ordained each other, cheated churches out of speaking fees, misrepresented themselves, and gathered donations from churches and churchgoers which were then channeled toward a failed scheme of trying to reopen a 6 thousand foot gold mine in the California hills that was filled with 4 thousand feet of cyanide-contaminated water.

    Yeah, I got my ordainment and my degrees, back in 2000 or thereabouts, to basically rub their noses in the fact my ordainment and the Doctor of Divinity were legal in all 50 states and they didn't have a leg to stand on.

    Just to be clear, I've never used my ordainment to perform weddings, baptisms, nor funerals, but I'm allowed to if I choose to, and I've never used my DD (legal, honorary) or PhD (non-accredited except by an unofficial, unrecognized IAA that's based in the same city the ULC is) to obtain employment of any kind.

    It's fun to wave it around sometimes though.

    I'm always baffled at the sheer lunacy of some people. And Greg, if those idiots are still walking around, you are a far better man than I. I'd be in prison with a smile on my face, though.

    I'm wondering now what I could do with those two degrees, and how hard they were to obtain.

    Greg: Holy shit. I would have gone...I dunno. Realistically, I'd probably cry for a week and then destroy many valuable things of theirs. And then cry for another week.

    And then write a story with characters based on them and have them attacked by werewolves or something.

    WTH is her problem? That sounds awesome actually.

    Would it be sparkling blood? (not to be confused with sparkly blood.)

    Would there be a little bar with things you could add to your blood? Like...hot sauce, peppers, pickled asparagus and stuff?

    I am really, really liking what I'm envisioning right now.

    If I ever became invisible, I'm not so sure it would work out. I would most likely get hit by a car or something.
