Truth in Spam?

This morning I received a spam message, which is not so unusual – I get at least a few per day. This one came from a typically nonsensical e-mail address. What was surprising (but perhaps refreshing) was the name associated with the address:

From: slime < xghuhirx@spbnit.ru >

Couldn’t have put it better myself.

I Wanna Lib!

After too long a hiatus, Sad Libs have returned.  At least, I’ve put a new one up.  I write about it here for anyone who may be checking this blog, but not the Sad Lib blog.  Henceforth, (hopefully) regular updates to Sad Libs won’t be posted here, as they have their own feed.

I’ve also now added a sidebar link for Sad Libs, as well as updated some of the other links there.

Like ‘Risk’, only more relevant

Courtesy of my friend Kevin’s blog, I discovered the site of a board game about the war on terror.  In fact, it’s called War on Terror, the Boardgame, in which you either fight terror, or support it, or both.

No, I’m not making this up.

To some people (who are not me), this may at first seem like it is in poor taste.  Reading further on the site will reveal that it’s just as much a political statement as an entertaining product.  I heartily agree with the statement they’re making, plus the game actually looks like a lot of fun (the illustrations are great, but the EVIL balaclava is really the clincher).

The game is unfortunately kind of pricey, but perhaps it will go on my birthday list.
