I'm really fighting the urge to go to the casino tonight. :) It's like...I have this whole block of time free. The habitual part of my brain is saying, "You should be playing poker instead of wasting time." Which actually...might be true. Assuming proper bankroll and enough skillz, that might actually be the preferred second job. :) But that aside...no, I still don't think it's the right time yet. I really need to know where I stand financially before putting shit at risk like that. This urge is made slightly worse, actually, because last night I (finally) finished Baten Kaitos: Origins after an epic and inept struggle, so now without my ever-present video game, I feel like I have nothing to do. ;) But I'm hangin' tough, as the New Kids might say. No poker for me. Just yet. :)
So there's this author I like, John Scalzi. He's been running a popular and successful blog (Whatever) for a little over ten years now. Perhaps his greatest act of notoriety was taping bacon to his cat and posting pictures of it on his blog. This led to the rise of the Internet Phenomenon "Bacon Cat," which takes its place in the Internet pantheon alongside, you know, Limecat, Pancake Bunny...stuff like that. Anyway, this guy Scalzi was recently at a sci-fi/fantasy convention in Los Angeles called LosCon, and you can see a picture of him there here...next to a woman cosplaying Bacon Cat. Yes. This is where we are, now...we have people going to conventions cosplaying an Internet Phenomenon. Just...just stop the world.
