Basically, I just picked a random digicam pic from my hd and turned it into a comic. It was either this or 'sad woodpecker in snow', and I was afraid Piro might sue me. Heh. Anyway, I was going to write a real rant but I had to make a fake comic instead. I'll try to show up later and write something more interesting...

I had the day off today, so I stayed up late, playing KOTOR.. unfortunately, I missed The Dead Zone and the comic :)

After I realized I had missed making the comic, I... played KOTOR for a couple hours, then I tried to do the comic, but I passed out on the third panel, so I guess you'll get to view its glory on Friday!

It's back for now, but I fear if it goes away again I might have a nervous breakdown or something... Stupid work.

I got into my car this morning and found that my rear-view mirror had become detached from the windshield, leaving only a hard square of old glue... stupid glue! Maybe I can superglue the thing to the old glue...

For my lunch hour, I went home to play KOTOR (and eat lunch), and I guess I may have skipped some worlds or something, because I did Kashyyyk, Tatooine and then Corridan, but when I tried to go back to Tatooine for a side-quest, I was captured by a Sith star destroyer ship thing and had to kill a bunch of people and learn a super secret plot twist and fight Darth Malak!

This shouldn't be a spoiler, really... Anyway, Malak freezes your companions and then you two go at it with the lightsabers and the force-chokes and stuff, then, when Malak gets below half health, he turns and runs through a doorway.

So there I was, my friends were still force frozen, even though Malak was long gone, and I was facing door he'd run through. Locked. No problem, there were two other doors in the room (besides the door I came in by, which was also locked). Both led to hallways that parallelled the one Malak must have run down, and all 3 join into one at a door. That door was locked. Now, I may be a dark and twisted force user, but that doesn't mean I can unlock doors! I never chose to invest my skill points in lockpicking, but I suspect that the doors wouldn't have been openable anyway. So I started from an earlier save, to try to find some computer terminal that I might have missed, but I had to go back to work, so who knows if it's a bug or something I forgot (though it should be a bug anyway, since I couldn't go back to find the unlocky-thing). Mean game...

Called Comcast again, since I had not yet received a callback regarding the pay per view stuff... The ticket they had started a couple weeks ago has still not gone through their billing department, so they can't start another one for the new PPV charges from last weekend that I just saw in the online view. Just for fun, here's my list of recent transactions (note that I don't speak espanol).
Transaction Date Post Date Description Amount

If you're not reading the title (popup text) attribute on the image or the Comments mailto: link subject, you're missing out on half the fun! Just a tip from DrF...
