Just the way I like it

After you die...
In the Ground

After death, you will cease to exist. In all likelihood, your carcass will be deposited in the ground.

Housewarming, Board/Console Gaming, and General Geekery


The time has come once again.

In order to kill two or three birds with one stone (and to outdo that villain mearls), we're throwing a housewarming/late birthday/general geekery get-together. Board games, Wii death-duels, food and drink are the order of the evening. I will give a shiny new nickel* to whoever wears their most geeky of apparel.

The day: Saturday, June 2nd

The time: 5:30pm - late

The fun: Wii Sports will be on the agenda. Those of you with Gamecube games and controllers -- feel free to bring those along. DS players will also be catered for! There will also be boardgames: we have Apples to Apples, Munchkin, Man Bites Dog, and a few others. Again, feel free to bring something along.

The place:

11023 SE 240th, Unit A1
Kent, WA 98031

Drop in a bit early if you so choose, but we'll wait for quorum before the fun really starts. Feel free to bring spouses or significant others. If you know of anyone of a similar geekwise nature (ie people in your gaming group, etc), they are invited by association, but please arrive together so I know who they're with!

My cell is 360-306-1899 for those that don't have it. Please call ahead if we haven't met in person, or I may assume you're the pizza guy (or gal).

* Nickel not included.

Just When You Thought They Ran Out of Stuff to Put on Quarters

From the Franklin Min press release:
"This summer, silver is the new gold standard – for movies, with the June 15 release of Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, and for movie promotions, as Twentieth Century Fox and the Franklin Mint join forces to create an original limited collector’s edition “Silver Surfer” U.S. quarter that will challenge movie goers to Search 4 $ilver.

The collector’s “Silver Surfer” U.S. quarter will be emblazoned with the image of the legendary Marvel Comics character who takes a leading role in the movie. This legal tender coin is a 2005 California statehood commemorative quarter minted by the United States Mint and specially color-enhanced by The Franklin Mint for Twentieth Century Fox."

I like the idea that you can actually spend these things.

Eat it, Airbus

Where is your European aviation god now?

This week I've been working on FAA docs for the 787-8 Large Cargo Freighter (aka the "Dreamlifter"), which is the plane they're using to haul the pieces of this thing from Europe and Asia to Everett for assembly.

Working at Boeing might be long, hard hours, but you learn a hell of a lot.

Sixteen magic digits

Here's my Wii friend code for those who don't have it yet (mearls, I'm looking at you). Just make sure you tell me if/when you've added me, and I'll do the same.
