I didn't see anyone post about this but Gary Gygax passed away earlier this week.  I actually met him once at a sci-fi convention in the early 90s.  Got him to autograph my player's handbook, which I no longer have anymore, but I think I do still have the character sheet that was signed "killed by Gary Gygax".

Many of you are familiar with the card game Fluxx, the game of ever-changing rules. It pales beside the wondrousness that is Zombie Fluxx. Braaaaaains....

That is all.

Free Stuff

I am hoping to move into KCMO within the next month or two.  In anticipation of that, I've been looking around my house at things that I don't use much, if at all, and don't really want to pack and move again.  It's not enough stuff to have a garage sale (which I think are usually more trouble than they're worth) so I'd just as soon give them to someone I know.

This is what I've come up with so far:

  • luggage (one large suitcase and a couple garment bags)
  • "Mr. Coffee" Espresso maker
  • bread machine
  • an old computer, asst. components and 14" color monitor
  • assorted coffee cups
  • assorted glasses
  • several hundred feet of garden hose
  • assorted yard care tools (rakes, shovel, hoe, sprinklers, etc.)
  • gas-powered trimmer
  • wheelbarrow.
  • an 80lb "heavy" punching bag
  • golf clubs

Some of the yard care stuff will be subject to where I move and how big, if any, of a yard I have, except the hose.  I know I have at least a couple hundred feet of hose that I'll never use.  There may be some additions as I get things organized.

These two things are worth enough that I think I should get some money for them, but depending on where I move, I might be willing to give them away also.

  • beer making equipment (primary & secondary fermenters, bottling bucket, bottle capper and about four cases worth of empty bottles and a lot of other bits and pieces too numerous to list)
  • wrought iron patio table (with umbrella) and three chairs

How did it know I was from Michigan?

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."
