Morning Discussion

Xav's away today and Brian is off at BlizzCon but we're all friends here, okay, so let's take today nice and slow, just see what happens, no pressure, until Blizzard unexpectedly announces Diablo 3 is on store shelves today and everyone there has (CD) keys under their chair or that Warcraft IV has become a Facebook game. Then we can get excited.

I can hardly wait for the weekend to begin as I'm going to a Twin Peaks marathon, where from 11:15am on Saturday till 6:40pm on Sunday I shall watch every episode of David Lynch's weird and brilliant TV series from the comfort of an arts centre floor while dressed as David Duchovny when he was dressed as a gentleman dressed as a lady dressed as a gentleman. If Monday's Morning Discussion is gibberish--more than usual, anyway--you'll know I had a fab time or my mind broke. Either way, it'll be great.

The official theme of today is run-on sentences while the official soundtrack is the bizarre/terrible/wonderful/astounding youth version of Devo, Dev2.0. Hey, here's what Devo has to say about the project. I say Whip It.

Indie Superstar, part of AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity developer Dejobaan Games, wants to find out who plays indie games. Please complete their survey to help science.

  • I got pulled over last night by city PD. I saw the familiar Crown Vic running lights tailing me close and new the strobes were imminent, so I signaled and pulled to the right. Sure enough, red white and blue.

    A nice asian female officer approached and after a brief greeting asked, "Do you know why I pulled you over?" I replied that I didn't, which was true.

    "The reason I pulled you over was because your rear license plate light is out."

    Fast forward through "Can I see your DL, registration (my sticker's on the plate) and proof of insurance" which I had. For the next 5 minutes I waited while she went back to her vehicle and finished up. My record is clean, no moving violations, no failure to appears, no outstanding warrants, nothing.

    I got an infraction ticket to replace the bulb, which of course I will do. I guess I'm satisfied that the system works, but that bulb will end up costing me more than it's worth, because the City will "send me a notice in the mail", which means a fine.

    I signalled to pull away, extended my arm out the driver's window to indicate I was merging left safely, and they followed me for several more blocks.

    A full moon and and a strange twist of luck.
