Thirty Seconds (with profanity, mild)

1) Whether it is was one of my parents, or my brother who tossed in my latest care package a copy of the latest edition of Robert Asprin's Myth series, it rocks. This is the large volume with multiple (3? 4?) novels, plus illustrations by Phil Foglio. Outstanding.

2)I have a new favorite Computer Game: Rome: Total War. I've gone and conquered Gaul and Spain in the last two days, and am having it out with Carthage. I find it amusing that many if not most GIs spend our off-time with violence-based games. Being a historical nut, I'm chosing a violence-based game which involves throwing javelins at elephants. So I'm wierd, deal with it.

3) QOTD: "I wish I had my truck in Germany, 'cuz them Nazi bitches dig big trucks" -- The Company Redneck.

4)QOTD: "Ehhh, I needed new porn." Response to 'what brings you back here, sir' from an officer assigned to a Higher Headquarters as a liason officer.

5)QOTD: "You can't buy a war elephant, but I will let you buy a war hampster." My wife, responding to my latest enthusiasm.

Forget the war hampster. I want a miniature giant space hampster. They go for the eyes.

You forgot the part about the howdah!

"Have you ever seen a howdah on a war hamster?"

"Well, yes, but it was a very small howdah."

Glad you enjoy R:TW. If you have any questions, need tips, etc I am up for noodling. Have you patched it up to 1.2 or 1.5?

Another post coming soon, baby? I'd like to see you writing a bit more. (Even if it is about conquering the world.)

Love you.

You don't really want a war elephant. The grocery bill is enormous, and you have to clean up after them every 20 minutes. A Warhamster is definitely a better idea. Be careful it's not a ninja hamster--they escape too easily. Since ninjas disguise themselves, the most reliable way to tell if you got a real warhamster or merely a disguised ninja hamster is to see whether it has escaped.

I had a dream of you and soldiergrrl on a war elephant, lumbering down 6th street in Austin on Halloween or Mardi Gras. No one was particularly taken aback by the sight (this being Austin). But to make it street legal, you had affixed headlights to the tusks, hung brake lights and a license plate reading LEFANT from its tail. Soldiergrrl was in braids and some sort of home-maid outfit--legs astride the elephants neck, singing excerpts from Wagner's Ring Trilogy and you were standing on the beasts rump, wearing BDU's and holding on for dear life to a .68 Cal paint ball gun made up to look like a Ma Deuce on a pintel mount.

War hamsters....think WAR HAMSTERS and do not let my nightmare come true.
