Let it snow, let it snow

It seems to snow everyday this winter, and it is only December 21st. Just a random picture as I left the house this morning. Word on the street is that we already have more snow than we did all last year. I'm pretty sure March was the first real snow storm we got too. I happen to love when it snows, too bad my car doesn't.

Pirates vs. Ninjas vs. Eskimos?

Pirates vs. Ninjas just wasn't enough. I can understand Knight, Viking, Cowboy, and even Astronaut; but Eskimo? Who put Eskimo up there, and how is it not the last choice for everyone.

An office debate was started to see which character would be the coolest to be. Some of the deciding categories that were discussed include: strength, freedom, prestige, charm (ok sex life), average life expectancy, weapons, average meals, etc...

Some key points:

  • Ninjas sex life is unknown
  • A Viking is not just a northern pirate
  • Eskimos have no enemies
  • Vampires always do well with the ladies
Some co-workers would only rate their #1 spot, so we never got full results. Knight was doing surprisingly well (even though he may be on the battle field for long periods without women, and has to be willing to give his life for someone else). Viking (perhaps Beowulf helping) also made a strong showing.

Amazing Brute Stick?

I got a really nice brute stick last night on Last Resort. Can you spot it? (click to enlarge)
Stay tuned for a picture from his angle.

Crazy splatter and pointless Snipe

It was just one of those nights where if I wanted you dead, you were. I had no mercy for the falling. These are 2 clips from that night. The first guy thought he'd surprise me by jumping down after me - HA. The second guy (ICALLSWOORDDD) was a dead man sniping. He was already on his way to joining his teammates, but he was trying to get a last shot in anyway. I didn't let him get away with that.

I didn't actually get the splatter, my main man SPYDASAM did. The clip shows what he saw, and I'm guessing that the game thought his snipe caused the mongoose flying action, but I'm not sure. I hope you enjoy.

Can you spot the Geek's Pumpkin?

These are the pumpkins that were carved at my sister's 2nd Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest. Once again all I could come up with was something related to work - last year Tux managed to get a vote, but I'm pretty sure that was my fiancée anyway. Tux was definitely better, but I think if the digg community was voting I may have got one digg at least.

Camp Froman Stick

This unlucky Red dude got a nice Brute Grenade in his armpit - complements of Paul Pi3rce. I'm the Blue guy in the backgroud at Froman.

French King Bridge - Erving/Gill, MA

This is our favorite bridge in Mass. We headed out to see it before the Patriots and the Sox games started Sunday. If we had made it out the week prior I'm sure the leaves would have been more colorful. It's all good either way.

Tribute to a fallen Soldier


Today is the Birthday of former master chief- Spyda2Gsamdigga. Spyda2Gsamdigga was one of the original Halo CE pistol shooting warriors to span across North America looking for a challenge. Damnation still remembers his dead-on rockets; Hang 'em high had to wash the blood stains off the back wall; Chill-out is exactly what the opposing team was saying to Digga with his shotgun of glory; Boarding Action and Chiron didn't even know they were good maps until he stepped foot; the ladder on Longest felt safe, but digga's plasma was already on your back.

Halo 2 brought more beat-downs, and the domination continued... but, suddenly a combination was formed to defend DIGGA2G's wrath - the n00b-combo. With his back to the wall he changed his name to hide his identity, but the combo soon followed. SAMDIGGA had to survive without a shield. He did.

Halo 3 came just in time, and cheaters and the n00b-combo couldn't crawl away from the SPYDASAM...........

10/24/2007
At approximately 2:47 am, the above photo was taken on a new level they call Higher Ground. Just outside the front gates a n00b jumped off the wall to a certain death. Certain you ask, yes certain, because the SPYDA was waiting with his shotgun. The unsuspecting n00b let out a wail as he felt the point-blank shotgun to his face. SPYDA2GSAMdigga was satisfied.

Wait, what?! Armed with only his shotgun the unknown blue-player turned and fired in SAM's direction, followed with a pointless pounding of the B-button.

What happened next is not certain. There are whispers of a friendly snipe, or a stray grenade, or even a barrel looking for spydasam; what we do know is DiggaSam2gSpyda has fallen..... (if you click on the pic for high res, you can clearly see the spyda symbol)

Let our prayers be with him, for he will never be forgot.

This Rain is boring

...said Alicia. She is lounging around at home waiting for me to get out of work, and this is how she described what she is doing. I'm not quite sure how the rain can be not boring- I suppose a Hurricane would bring some non-boring rain to town; however, I feel there is a deeper meaning I fail to grasp. Oh well...
