May. 22nd, 2007

I had better post again before May is gone.

Tomorrow brings some closure to the project that made Jack a dull boy. I'll be happy to finally officially move on after tomorrow. Very happy. I'm getting some small thank-you's. It's at the point where my "new team" is wondering if I'm going to be coming on board and helping to give them any direction, which does concern me a bit. But a couple of co-workers near my current desk all met me at the sushi bar across the street for Happy Hour today and some story swapping.

I told some of my coworkers about the pirate birthday party, and as expected I get some laughs, some interest and some funny looks. Most notably, one coworker made sure I was around when his wife showed up because she had bought a pink baby doll T-shirt that said "I <3 Pirates". With a skull and crossbones on the heart. Priceless.

I'm at the point of keeping up with work. Barely. But if I can push through the week, Memorial Day weekend should be a very nice relaxing break. Complete with Pirates of the Caribbean 3 and GAMING. W00T. Turnout for requested pirate RPG seems low, but that may end up rescheduled separately if that will get more people interested.

2 months. I should finish Final Fantasy XII and get up to the "Face-Melters" of Guitar Hero 2 on Extreme difficulty, but I think hitting 70 on World of Warcraft is not going to happen, and any game I can't pause is going to be that much less desirable come August.

PS: Whee! Got an invite! Woo!

Pirates in the hizzouse! Sure, why not. I'm looking forward to commandeering another "Run Out the Guns" game.

YES! And I must RSVP soon, though it'll probably be for one.

what is a "woot" anyway ?
never got a clear answer on that one. people started saying it in the chat room, and I'm still ignorant on the subject.

So, what is this thing of which you speak ? This "woot" ?

Wishing you the best with all of this craziness of stuff.

much love,
Hobbes

Re: what is a "woot" anyway ?
Woot. I'm not sure where it started, but it's an expression a lot like the cheer "Woo!", just a little less extended since the T sound kinda cuts off the word.

In the parlance of Pookah, it is roughly comparable to "Rock on."
