My cat or James's cat? January 31, 2013, 5:04 am
So three years ago the most awsum cat came to the side door of our house on a most frigid winter night. After its rescuer went back to Germany I inherited the cat because no one else wanted him. Well, I don't know how the cat does it (sneaks cute pills at the clinic?) but it is just the most endearing creature I've ever had the privilege of knowing.

I moved into my Boss's guest room for a couple months while I was helping her on her Geobook. My friend James lives in the area so I offered him the privilege of caring for my cat for the interim since I couldn't bring it to my boss's. One weekend, my friend went back to Boston to visit his g/f. A snowstorm blew up and I had to go reskew kitty from James's garage, where he was staying when James would leave. My boss was nice enough to let me bring kitty over to her farm house (big land--kitty LOVES the outdoors). Boss immediately falls in love with kitty. She hopes I will give her kitty, and James hopes he'll get kitty. Boss states up front she wouldn't want to borrow kitty. She only wants him if I give him to her permanently. James says he'd be happy to take kitty for as long as I want, no commitments necessary. So I let James have kitty, until I find a living situation where I can have kitty, even though James's property isn't quite as awesome as boss's (still pretty great for kitty, tho). But that living situation never transpired, and James loves kitty a lot, naturally. Now he keeps saying kitty is his. I can't tell if he's messing around or not, but did he by ipso-defacto inherit my kitty because he's been caring for him for so long? He gave it its shots and other things. I wasn't keen on all that stuff, figuring kitty doesn't need that stuff, so I think he feels he takes better care of kitty furthering his claim to him.

Man, I wish I had brought my camera....
I mean, this thing was large. Certainly right up there with the largest. Maybe not quite the girth of the greatest, but healthy enough; but it was the length that was so impressive. Fully lodged it was, and yet still breaking above the surface of the water. That's something to write about: a birth of great magnificence. I stood over the monstrosity in awe, reflecting on whether I should go hurry and get my camera, but ultimately deciding against leaving the ghastly malfeasance unguarded even for a moment. One tidal tug would not be sufficient to rid the world of the living of such vile villainy.

Fun with the grandparents January 29, 2013, 7:45 am
At the breakfast table my dad's girlfriend calls and my dad answers and tells her she is on speaker phone.

Dad: "Say good morning, dad!"
Grandpa: "Hi, dad!"

Beat my score. This was my second attempt at playing the game and playing with a touchpad on a laptop (no mouse).

Well, that was an interesting evening. [Protected identity], [protected identity] and a third-party boozed it up in the Jacuzzi and [protected identity] had the brilliant idea of playing truth or Dare (you know, because it's not like they're professionals with doctors degrees or anything). So it wasn't long before [protected identity] was trapsing about naked flapping his uhh… Well… his Whiskey dick flapping in the breeze. Then [protected identity] was drunk enough to briefly show the goods for protected identitys bending over and pulling down her bikini bottoms.

Florida bound November 14, 2012, 6:56 pm
I'm driving a car down to florida. The owner is paying me a measly $550. But I am going to see about ridesharing on the way down and buying a car down there for a friend who is a used car salesman and driving the bought car back. Hopefully that will work out and I'll make some money in the end.

Try this one, weird trick the firewood suppliers don't want you to know about:


Venting time (FIT EV) November 5, 2012, 2:14 pm
In the last decade, Honda has been seemingly slipping, making questionable cars with questionable fuel economy compared to the golden era of Honda . They finally produce a car to make me fall in love with the company again but only release it in select cities and a limited number. It's just .. why....


Birthday wish November 5, 2012, 12:25 am

I'd love a Prince of Persia feeling in atmosphere doom level made in honor of my agédness on Guy Fawkes Day.

General Rainbow Bacon had started one that was very promising which I hope maybe he'll finish :).

Something with some clever secret passageways and nooks and crannies to explore. Contrast from tight passageway to open to tight again is probably good (as well as low ceilings to high ceilings). Contrast is your friend.

I love GSTONE texture. I don't like marble, tho (because I had it as a default in DeepSea for a long time and it killed it for me. I also like the GRAY* textures (with gray4 being my least favorite for the same reason I don't like marble :p). I also like the various versions of the gray floor texture as seen in the above screenshot.

  • Please, don't have the exit door locked by a key. :)
  • Please, no instappear monsters or monsters that teleport in, unless it's setup as an ominous event (ie, E1M9, E3M5, or Map13 RL get).
  • Secret areas that are built for their atmosphere more than for what they contain.
  • Preponderance of rooms with high ceilings next to passageways or rooms with low ceilings.
  • Doom 1 scale and style architecture / level of detail. :)

Pretty sure I'm asking way too much, but, well, I suppose it doesn't hurt to ask.

Some names for inspiration:

Smeagol's Descent
Baldur's Tomb
Lost Templar
