Hmm…So maybe the upload IS working. Still shaking the bugs out of the system here.

Well, tomorrow Bets jaunts off to faraway FLA and sticks me here by my lonesome, with just the kitties to keep me company. The kitties, and my new Xbox. ๐Ÿ™‚ If anyone has game recommendations, post'em up…always like good game design, regardless of the genre. Also, if anyone wants to do dinner for the next week or so (late, though…working in the Collab 'til 8pm nearly every night) let me know…gonna be starving for human contact. ๐Ÿ™‚

Speaking of gaming, for those who don't know, I _love_ games. Adore them. Game design is a hobby of mine, and I'm a playtester for a company (Comic Images) who produces one of the more popular Collectible Card Games, Raw Deal. It's a game based on the World Wrestling Entertainment brand of professional wrestling. The game is my major hobby…to the point where I'm competing in qualifiers for the world championships over the summer. ๐Ÿ™‚ Wish me luck.
