Was playing Diablo 3 with a friend on his Twitch stream and one of my other companions noted his daughter had just returned from the Rooster Teeth eXpo where they confirmed that Volume 4 of RWBY would be released on 22 October.

I've been writing for about seven years now. I've had my share of praise from readers and reviewers, but as far as I knew, none of my family has ever read anything I wrote. 'A prophet without honor,' and all that.

My oldest son is getting married tomorrow. I participated in the rehearsal tonight. Imagine my surprise to learn that my son and future daughter-in-law had incorporated a scene from one of my posted fics into their ceremony...

Wow, that is quite the surprise indeed! I guess some sort of congratulations is in order for both your lucky son (and his equally lucky future wife) for the obvious reasons, but also to you for the honor of having some of your writing make it into your family's notice. Very Happy

With the Defender now out of production (for the next couple of years at least), I was wondering who would step up and give the 70 Series some competition...



Turns out, thanks in part to the Army, the answer is Mercedes (if only on the Australian market in cab-chassis format). Not cheap admittedly, almost double what the Toyota costs, but that it comes with a lot of gear which would normally require specialist fitment as standard helps a little.

A G-Wagon pickup? Sweet. I'm a big fan of the Mog, but they're a bit overkill for a daily drive, unless your commute is across Death Valley or some such.

You could always go for a Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6, which drew inspiration from the 6x6 Mercedes used by the Australian Defense Forces.

I would ignore the painted lines in my parking lot and dare someone to call me on it.

A pair of CDs arrived from Ebay today: a replacement for the Gunslinger Girl soundtrack I inadvertently left in my Patriot when I traded it in, and the GitS 'Solid State Society' OST.

On a whim I decided to switch shifts with a coworker, so I had Friday off. My sister found out I was off Friday so she bought an extra ticket for the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. Never seen it in my whole life, but was entertained. Good day out with my family too.

A short while back, I learned I was going to be a grandfather again: my youngest son's girlfriend of five years is going to have a boy. Yesterday, I visited the restaurant where she works. She came to me, glowing and smiling like sunshine, and showed me her brand-new engagement ring.

Today, I scored a dual Xeon rig with 2 Ivy Bridge E3-1290's, 24G of RAM, onboard dual SATA 1/SAS HDD controllers, and a legit Windows 7 Pro COA for $200.

THEN...I went to the Dollar Tree after getting back from Prez Day BBQ and landed a BUNCH of Ecto Cooler in the freaking can!

I'm feeling so lucky today I'm gonna go out and play PowerBall before calling it a night. dancin\\'

Just finalized plans for the annual family vacay: a lakefront house in Clearwater, Michigan, the second week of June. The week before Easter, I'll be at the place in Indiana. and in August I'll be at Otakon. I haven't taken this much time off in the summer in years. dancin\\'
