So I got a new laptop today, an Acer Aspire 6920G, billed as that oxymoron, the gaming laptop.  I like laptops, I like gaming, so it should all work out just peachy.  It has some good specs (excellent for a laptop) and a lot of cool extras like a built-in webcam and even a subwoofer.  It's awesome and bizarre and brilliant. In other news, blimey, we're doing well in the Olympics, aren't we?  I mean, I knew our cyclists were good, but as it stands they're taking everyone else apart...

Woo, I'm 23, year of vaguely unlikely conspiracies that end up in films starring Jim Carrey.  Or something. It's an awkward number for birthday cakes though, being prime: you can't really play the "Each candle represents so many years" game.

Wow,your the Paul Power? Awesome! I love your LP's on the Advance Wars! It's nice to see a LP without using cussing to make things funnier.

PS:Will you ever do a Dual Strike LP?
Are you still writing your being of light story? It was really interesting, and would love to read more :)

Hiya! Saw some of your new stuff, by the way. Pretty good, but I couldn't think of anything to say. Good to see you back, though :)
