As the rest of the east coast can attest, we’ve be

As the rest of the east coast can attest, we’ve been snowed in. My car is currently embedded in a four-foot-deep snowdrift. You know, this never happened in Little Rock. Sure, we had religious intolernace, gang warfare, and the odd tornado, but I COULD DRIVE TO WORK EVERY DAY. We ran out of staples (read: Diet Coke) today. Thankfully, the pizza deliveries were working again. (I imagine they’ve made more than I this weekend just from tips…) Alas, my PS2 decided to crap out this weekend as this has been PERFECT “pixel people weather” – veg out in front of the television and level up your pixel people. Oh well.

My cry for help last entry or so re: spam convinced me (a) I need to install Mailwasher (I mean, come on, just LOOK at this crap for cryin’ out loud) and (b) damn, a lot of you people are out there reading my ramblings. Frightening.

I really am confused about the whole war and peace thing, which is new for me. The male in me wants to see Iraq blown up, preferably with shiny toys. The worry-mongerer in me wonders if the blowback will result in millions of Islamic fedayeen sweeping over the West and establishing the Caliphate of the Carolinas or something. And the cynic in me thinks that with folks like Edward Said on the side of the peaceniks, it’s time to drop the bomb already. Leaving aside for the moment the snide reminder that Ari Fleischer is Jewish and thus not really an American citizen, this is the same guy who felt nothing wrong with throwing rocks at an Israeli outpost from Hezbollah’s front lines. Apparently, war is just fine as long as Jews are the ones dying. The French seem to agree, or at least think that lesser nations should know when to shut up. (This apparently doesn’t include France.) Meanwhile, I wish I could vote for Tony Blair more and more. So, I start to think that the good guys are on the side of war, and the bad guys are on the side of peace. Then I remember that John Ashcroft is on the side of war too. I AM CONFUSED. And what do I think we should do about Iraq? I haven’t a clue, although maybe bribing Hussein with French prostitutes to defect isn’t a bad idea.

I’ll be at GDC in San Jose the first week of March. Drinks are on… whomever’s buying! (Probably not me.) Thankfully, this year I actually have a full pass courtesy of my employer and won’t be reduced to camping outside watching the street vendors give away Anarchy Online boxes.

I see someone sent Ubiq the interesting Shadowbane page I found. Heh. In your blind my eye tear, because I in under-water! Shui Shuo: I can feel in your eye the tear, because you in my heart. It’s poetry, I tell you. (Hint: Babelfish holds the key.)
