But hey, there's good news too. It really is almost done, and it's totally gonna rock. So there's that anyway. Guess I can use this time to pull back and look over my printouts so far. Make sure it's all gonna fit together when this carpal tunnel thing settles down.
I keep toying with adding this one new class but I still haven't made my mind up. Sort of an ascetic healer/transcendentalist type. It would have some abilities in common with the D&D monk class but would not be as focused on combat and funky weapons and Oriental culture. More of a healer type, but (hopefully) with enough tricks to make it still fun to play.
So maybe I can work out the details of that while I'm sitting around re-playing the Doctor Who episodes I recorded and cursing the frailty of flesh.

There's nothing all that great about that generation, anyway. They fought in a big war. They went with the tide of history. They did what anybody else would have done in their situation. There's nothing heroic about that. It's just life. And they bred like rats, too. Thanks a lot for that population nudge, greatniks. Thanks for the boom that led to urban sprawl, toxic wastelands, and global warming. I am so humbled before your greatness.
There's no such thing as a great generation. The only thing we get from glorifying the past is the inability to grow out of it.

Also, I got no work at all done this weekend, unless putzing around with the cover layout counts. So maybe I cracked myself on the head because deep down, I knew I deserved it. Damn, I'm mean.

Rough Summer Is On the Way for Air Travel
By JEFF BAILEY, May 21, 2006
CHICAGO, May 20 — Brace yourself for a summer of miserable air travel.
Planes are expected to be packed fuller than at anytime since World War II, when the airlines helped transport troops. Fares are rising. Service frills are disappearing.
Logjams at airport security checkpoints loom as the federal government strains to keep screener jobs filled. The usual violent summer storms are expected to send the air traffic control system into chaos at times, with flight delays and cancellations cascading across the country...
Well, that's just great. The one summer I have to fly because a car trip to my brother's wedding in San Francisco would be even more expensive, and shit like this is happening.

Kind of a neat quote, huh? It popped up on my random quote of the day thingie just after I emailed that last post in. And isn't it cool, btw, that I can just email my blog posts in (with a password) and they get posted automatically? That's one of the reasons I jumped to this site. Anyway, you know whose quote that was? John Lennon? Jules Verne? Think farther back. It was actually my favorite "founding father," Thomas Jefferson.
History's interesting too, of course. No denying that.

We were at the park today and I saw something I've never seen before: a black squirrel. It was cool. Turned out there were actually a bunch of them there. Of course, I'm hardly a squirrel expert. I hadn't seen red squirrels either until I moved to Cleveland. They're all red in the neighborhood where I live now. Before that, I thought they were all gray.
Okay, really. Future posts will be more interesting than this. Probably better written too, although I make no promises. It is a blog, after all.
