Forty years ago today I threaded my first pelvis. In celebration I've rented the local rock climbing gym for an all night climbing and gaming extravaganza! With 20,000 square feet of climbing surface and a big-ass pile of games we will climb and game until our fingers and minds BLEED.

Geeklist to follow, hopefully with pictures of bloody chits...

Happy birthday, Chris!

If y'all haven't gamed with Chris, you owe it to yourself to do it at least once in your life. Just don't be surprised if he is holding flowery throw pillows when you meet him. It's how he lulls you in to a false security just before he... aaaaand I've said too much.

Happy Birthday!

Silverback sounds majestic, but once you've swallowed the exercise tire in your enclosure, you just hope that the ladies are looking at you from behind:

You are now the same age as one of my favorite musicians that just died over the weekend.

So, congrats on that.

It confuses people. I get a lot of "How old are you again?" with a tone of voice that says I'm guessin' anywhere between 35 and 70. Turns out everyone on my mom's side went silver well before 50—a genetic quirk that was obscured by hair dye and vanity. When I turned they all fessed up. I just figured I'd seen too many ghosts or something.

At 44, I've lucked out(well besides actually having a head of hair). Have a few whites popping out.

But I have a sweet Dr. Strange two white stripes down the front of my beard, otherwise it still has color. So I assume that is more evil than wisdom.

It could be both, but my money is on the evil thing.

Wait. Are you saying you're 40? That... isn't... possible.

*edit* Since posting the first part of this message, I've done nothing but sit at my desk and think about this fact (I did start another album to listen to), and I have come to the inescapable conclusion that this is the most depressing thing I've heard in a very long time.

If a suppository doesn't clear that up in a few days, I'd see a doctor.

Jackasses? You let a whole column get stalled and strafed on account of a couple of jackasses? What the hell's the matter with you?

40 is Zirconium. 47 is Silver. 48 is Cadmium.
