Can't wait for my Bonez! They're coming on the 1st. Did you get any of the big guys? I didn't get that dragon, but I've seen pics of it and it's frickin MASSIVE. I couldn't resist picking up Cthulhu though!
Syntax error.  Hah!  Good stuff.

I just got my Reaper Bones.  So much bendy plastic (about 9 pounds).  Quality-wise I like some, others are meh (from a mini snob's perspective...  bendy sword...).  They can certainly be useful for canon fodder in gaming though.  As to when any get painted...

I ended up passing on the Call of Cthulhu kickstarter.  True to theme their pledging system was so confusing and arcane that I lost a couple of sanity points trying to figure out the final prices.
Those made me laugh!

Lately I've been getting intrigued by Savage Worlds Deadlands, but I want to play it, so I think Aeryk should run it!

| Couldn't resist reposting a couple nerd jokes:

"A programmer's wife tells him: ‘Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.’ The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread."

"A biologist, a chemist, and a statistician are out hunting. The biologist shoots at a deer and misses 5ft to the left, the chemist takes a shot and misses 5ft to the right, and the statistician yells, 'We got 'im!' "

Hope the memorial goes well - sorry for your loss!

I've always wanted to go to that arcade convention. I don't see it in the cards for me this year either, but someday we'll make it happen.

While I still think everyone else should go to the awesome video game show, I will instead be attending a weekend long memorial service.

Topple the MCP for me!
Tron?  Burger Time?  Haunted House?!  Oh, if only I could go...  July is going to be soulcrushingly busy.  With weekend work.  Yay.

| California Extreme - July 13 - 14

The old school video game expo in Santa Clara is just around the corner!  11am - 2am on Saturday of all you can eat free-play game cabinets and pinball!

I went last year with Wylie and vowed to go it sans 6 year old this year because all I wanted to do was play and soak up the old arcade atmosphere. It was a lot of fun, and The Action Team should represent!

I'd be down for a night in the hotel, gaming, and drinking - anyone else?  Pre-reg ends on the 30th and is $40 bucks for Saturday.  Could use my place as a hotel for the weekend and drive over the hill for the event?

Let's doo eet!

| I hope everyone is oK!

I thought these Wikipedia Brown stories were funny. I hope the Action Team hasn't fallen apart.
