What Jason Means

You are fair, honest, and logical. You are a natural leader, and people respect you.

You are rational enough to see every part of a problem. You are great at giving other people advice.

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.

You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.
You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.
You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.

You are well rounded, with a complete perspective on life.
You are solid and dependable. You are loyal, and people can count on you.
At times, you can be a bit too serious. You tend to put too much pressure on yourself.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.

Wow, it's only been about 2 weeks since i last posted, but what a strange couple of weeks.

In that time, i've blown up a car, gotten a new computer, found out i have an allergy to the heat transfer compound used on cpu and heatsinks, driven my mom's car, attended a game convention, missed a wedding and gotten a new car.
Also spent a week home alone, and wasn't killed when [ profile] morgandria got home.What a long strange trip it's been.... )

I may have found the game to replace City of Heroes.......
YAR! The official game of TLAPD*

Other than that, work is work, and fairly busy for start up. building up a fair bit of mileage. I think it's time for new computer bits, been taking a look around at what parts to put together that'll last me another 4-5 years like orthanc has. One month till the birthday too.

Things are good, even if i have to be a bachelor for the next week because of a scheduling conflict.

*TLAPD - Talk like a pirate day!

Your Score: House Tyrell

45% Dominant, 63% Extroverted, 36% Trustworthy

Vivacious. Gregarious. Dangerous. Slightly gay. Not to be trusted, you are of House Tyrell.

You are of a more submissive personality, though this is not to say that you are unambitious. On the contrary, you know that the spotlight brings more than glory. Unwilling to be saddled with the accusations and petty treacheries of court life, you are content to let someone else hold the reigns of the empire. You’re in the thick of it, though; no one makes a move that you haven’t anticipated. Those headstrong types are so easy to control.

You are also extroverted, which means that no matter how subtly you move your hand, everyone knows that you’re a player--a major one. Your sociability makes you a boon to the smallfolk, though in truth they love a façade. Your god-given talents will often excuse you from criticism, but jealousy will follow you like a dog wherever you go.

You are definitely untrustworthy. Behind you beaming smiles and polite laughter lurks the most dangerous kind of enemy: a charismatic one. You’re opportunistic, and all the more treacherous for your subtlety. An efficient political machine, you are always evaluating yourself as well as your surroundings. There’s no room for error in your household or yourself, and you’ll cut off the hand that offends you.

Representative characters include: Margery Tyrell, Loras Tyrell, and Olenna Redwyne.

Similar Houses: Baratheon, Frey, Tully

Opposite House: Lannister

Seat: Highgarden

When playing the game of thrones, you play it with style.

I'm jonesing a bit for some role-playing. I've got at least one outlet in the next little while, and depending on how much i shanghai [ profile] shlemkevich into picking up a little Twilight 2000 again i should have some outlets for this desire.

Upcoming for the end of September is the Phantasm Game Convention in Peterborough. I'm running the larp on saturday night again, and it looks like i'm going to be running a (with player co operation) high political conclave for the night. Called by a (to be determined) Justicar in the City of New York, the plots and politicking of the vampires of the city, and the world should be pretty interesting. I'm setting up plots and plot seeds right now, but those interested in playing, should, as always preregister by emailing and let me know what you'd like to play ( High Policitcal, Low Political etc, and choice of 1,2 or 3 clans. If you have an idea for a character please send it in as well.) There are no garantees that anyone will get their request, but i will endeavour to fulfill them, as numbers and plots allow.

Other than that, i'm vacillatating between wanting to run either Paranoia, or in consultation with a couple of people, a DnD(3.5) game set in the Forgotten Realms, the City of Splendors, Waterdeep, to be precise. Having spoken to some people who, despite having played in the FR for a long time, have never played in Waterdeep. I'm thinking a relatively lower level start (2-3) this gives a bit of space for competence... another post may follow this. I'm tempted to run this on RPOL, or figure out something else to play it on, or set something up that would enable us to play it on tabletop, if we got everyone together. If you are interested in this please comment.

I've still got my Heroscape terrain to try out with Battletech, but that requires people coming over, so i think we need to find a time for a gaming weekend again. [ profile] morgandria has talked about having one around her birthday, but i'm not sure if that would work out given timing and shortness of notice. The other option would be sometime in October, or November (for my birthday maybe). If you are one of the usual suspects ([ profile] shlemkevich, [ profile] otherjeff, [ profile] jlindsay, [ profile] acornya, [ profile] arirthos) Let me know when you would be interested in getting together for games, or if sometime towards the end of august, or labour day weekend would be good for you.

The other thing i've thought about is getting MegaMek working on a number of computers and playing either a tournement of some sort, or do a large battle using the Megamek system. It's not quite the same as pushing minatures around on a table, but it's pretty close, and it doesn't involve me fixing the minatures i've got kicking around, as well as painting them up again.

talk about a long dry time of not posting.

Not much has changed since then, except that school is out, and i'm pretty much finished getting my schools set up for the fall. Not sure what that's going to leave me with for the rest of the summer, but i'm sure work can be created.

The summer is finally settling down in regards to the car at least. Had to get the brakes, cylinders and calipers redone last week, as the brake pads the school used were the crappiest crap that ever crapped crap. or just cheap brakes that can't withstand the heat. The car still needs to get looked at, as it's idling very high, and seems to putting out a lot of heat and burning through gas, but that'll have to wait a little bit.

Let's see. I've had fridays off since the start of july, been doing some side trips or relaxing mostly. [ profile] morgandria's was up last weekend for a visit, which was quite nice, a trip to the Scottish Festival in Orillia for the parade and massed bands, some browsing, showing off the dowtown, then down to Black Creek Pioneer Village in Toronto for the Metis art festival, as some of [ profile] morgandria's relatives were playing in the festival. To top the day off, we headed to the asia-pacific mall for some browsing, a fairly so so dinner, and some groceries.

Just getting ready for the Bancroft Gemboree this weekend, as well as a trip to peterborough for the weekend.

Some Geek thoughts to follow this post.

Wow, been a while since a meaningful post here, so this may be a longer post than usual.

Since the last time i posted, i've been confirmed in my new position, with a raise, and job security. I'm now 15th from the top in security with about 7 people below me. This means i'm pretty lay-off resistant. The job pays fairly well, and moves me within range of 3x my starting wage per year. I get a raise Jan 1 for our contract raise, and move up a pay grid next september. This makes me feel pretty good about things, but now i wonder what the next goal will be. Probably some certifications, and some work on the side. The certifications will get me ready for the next step up in a few years.

Christmas was good, we ended up having a small Christmas dinner with my family on the 22nd, then headed to Peterborough for Yule with Heather's coven. I got a nice hot chocolate basket in the gift pillage, and was disappointed that more people weren't there to fight over the present [ profile] jlindsay stole the idea for from me.

We then headed up to Ottawa to have Christmas Eve dinner at Heather's brothers place. They have a nice townhouse, with tons of space. Dinner was a nice roast beast with home made yorkshire puddings. We played a few rounds of fluxx and exchanged gifts. We got the first season of Fraggle Rock, a Camera Cell Phone, a very nice sweater, a dress shirt, some socks.... We went back to Heather's mom's place to spend Christmas Eve, then went to visit a few people in Smith Falls, including Heathers Dad.

More to come... gotta reboot.
