City of Heroes

For the past few months, I’ve been playing City of Heroes / City of Villains, a massively multiplayer online roleplaying game, where players create costumed superheroes and villains and either protect or pillage Paragon City, Rhode Island. I’m interested in finding more people to play with that I know outside the game. My global chat handle is “@Redeemed Fiend”, and I play mostly on the Pinnacle and Freedom servers.

 plays too, with the global chat handle “@Short Cyrcuit”.

My 5-year-old son enjoys creating characters with me. Many of the toons that I play come from our joint character creation sessions.


LJ Talk

I’ve just added my LJ Talk account to my IM client, GAIM. I don’t see any of my LJ friends signed in at the moment, but these things tend to grow once people know that you will be online.


I’m guessing it took our kids less than a minute to scatter four containers of chinese restaurant takeout white rice all over the lower level of our house, playing Hansel and Gretel.

It has taken about two hours to clean up 95% of it. I know we’ll be finding rice in odd places for years to come.
