Crazy weekend stuff

It's been a hectic weekend for me. First and foremost, my friend Jade came down for a visit from North Carolina this weekend. She had an impulse to come to Florida and hit the beach, so she hopped in her car and drove around eight hours to spend the weekend with me. The weather didn't particularly agree with her beach plans at first (thunderstorms and the like but as usual down here, things can change in an instant, and before long the sun broke through and we were at the beach. Even I managed to get some sun, though the sunscreen didn't work quite so well on me in a couple of places. I ended up getting a nice toasty burn in a couple of places. Ahh well. Anyway, here are a couple of pics of Jade enjoying the sunshine.

I also spent some time with my nephew Blaise this weekend. We went out to Bennigan's for lunch, and later took a trip to Toys R Us. Like many others, I'm still a Toys R Us kid at heart, so it was a blast to go rummaging around the toy store for a while. Other odds and ends popped up to keep me busy all weekend, but things have finally settled down enough for me to return to my "normal" schedule. Currently, I'm writing up a couple of reviews and previews for GameSpy, plus I got an email from the guys at Electric Playground asking me to write up some stuff for them as well. I've got a few other projects in the works also.

Anyway, all in all, the weekend was fun. I think a nice little "mini vacation" may have been exactly what I needed to recharge. Now it's back to the usual routine of writing, gaming, and recruiting more groupies.

So if you are my groupie, does that make me your grouper?

I'm not trying to sound "koi", but I dunno about being your "grouper". I think I'm more of a "trout" person. And if any of you don't like that, you can kiss my "bass".

Heh

Glad you 2 fishies had a whale of a time at the beach!

Sorry about all the aquatic puns, folks. I didn't do it on "porpoise". (Okay ... who's next?)

Sorry I would have "fin" here sooner but the Internet decided to give me an unscheduled "filet" over.

Dave sure has us all "croaking" up with his "clown"ish behavior.

Also, someone tell Jade that is she keeps up the swimsuit shoots, we might have another "starlet" on the rise.

Bah *"sterlet" not starlet...

Okay ... this one comes in by proxy. I mentioned these puns to Phil Theobald, one of my editors at GameSpy. His response? "So is there a reason you're doing that? Or is it just for the 'halibut'?"

WldCard said...

Oh ... and to Mr. or Ms. anonymous ... would that be my "'clown'ish" behavior ... or "clownFISH" behavior?

Sounds all fishy "Tales" to me. HUMMMMMM.
A surprise visit>>>From maybe from a "Koi" one.

WldCard said...

No fair. I already used the "Koi" joke. You need to try and come up with something "betta"
