Our HERO game tangents.

Here are some of the off topics that came up durring on HERO RPG game on 4/27/07:

1. Name changes with cell companies.
2. Buffy and Angel series.

Dad still had the car due to car in the shop. I got a ride from Norm and a ride back from Bob.

At the ComicCon . . .

I found a press release for the direct to DVD movie of Babylon 5: The Lost Tales.

Marketing Support
Babylon 5: The Lost Tales will be supported by extensive national media campaign including TV and Online advertising. Marketing support will also include significant presence at the San Diego ComicCon. Online podcasts and a completely new redesigned website will also deliver significant awareness.

I read the part in red and say to myself, 'I am going the be there. I can check this out.' So, that is my plan. When I am there I will see if I can track them down. Get the DVD and maybe a autograph.

The water flows.

Last night it started with a ring around the sink. I think the sink has a clog. I find the drano and follow the directions. About a hour later I hear running water, like the tub was left running and over flowed. But it was not the tub, but the sink. Water was flowing up the drain, over flowed the sink and getting the floor soaked. First, glab my extra towels and apply then to the floor. Next, grab a large jar and start bailing the water from the sink to the tub. After a little time, it stoped and the clean up started. The pipe from the sink was removed and clean. I am not really sure where the water came from, the water was flowing from the drain. I had run a load of close in the washer. Could the be it? Is the washer drain connected to the sink? I will be keeping a eye out on the that sink from now on.

Update (5/1/07): After one more overflow today, the problem was fixed while I was at work by Roto Rooter. There was a clog somewhere in the line that directed some/most/all of the water from my new up stares neighbors. When I got home there was just a little clean up to do and some wet towels to deposit in the washer.

The change in the game.

Tonight we took a night off from our Hero Game and played some board games. To start out, my parent's car craped out and they borrowed my car for 4 days now. I got a ride with Norm and Gwen, then meet up with Bob. We then headed over to Red Robin to get some food. We then played 2 games. With night end, I got a ride back home with Bob.

Sakura-Con 2007

I want to start out by saying that getting sick sucks. Sakura-Con was last weekend. I hitched a ride with a friend to the Con. It did start with a 1 hour and 45 min stand in line. It was not too bad, i had planed on some wait. I did bring my PSP and iPod to kill some time. People in costume were abundant as you can tell in the picture that I took and others. One good did happen while in line, got a free con t-shirt. The dealer room was great. I did a lot of looking and bought a few Tachikoma toy figures, Dragon Ball figures and a Drsgon Quest toy. Seen here. I saw my frind Rich and stoped by the video room a few times. By 6pm I was ready to go, I was not feeling good. I got home in good time and crashed out. I ended up recovering that weekend and next two work days.

Check out the photo group for the Sakura-Con 2007 pictures, some are mine:

Wacky news

The German army sent a draft notice to a four-week-old baby named Lucio, ordering him to report for duty within the next 10 days, before realising it had blundered.

A spokesman for the army said the notice had been sent erroneously because a clerk typed in the wrong date of birth for the boy from Aubstadt, in southern Germany.

“It was an accident,” an army spokesman told Reuters.

“Somebody entered the wrong number into a computer. There was no harm done.

"We realised the error the same day and called up the family to tell them to throw the notice away when it arrived.”

DVD to cash.

I had some old DVDs that I did not want, that I bought the full set on or got the special edition of a old DVD. I cashed the out at my local DVD/CD store for $44.00, which was around $2 - 5 each for the lot. Cleared up some space and added some cash to my pockets.

A change in rent.

This last Saturday I got a letter about renewing my rent for my current apartment. Apparently there was rent increase from my current rent of $920 to $975. The place is in a good location, was remodeled last year and is still affordable. Papers were signed for a 10 month lease.
