A coworker is paying for me to go see Dark Knight after work tomorrow. I haven't looked forward so much to a film in quite some time...

You are The Hermit

Prudence, Caution, Deliberation.

The Hermit points to all things hidden, such as knowledge and inspiration,hidden enemies. The illumination is from within, and retirement from participation in current events.

The Hermit is a card of introspection, analysis and, well, virginity. You do not desire to socialize; the card indicates, instead, a desire for peace and solitude. You prefer to take the time to think, organize, ruminate, take stock. There may be feelings of frustration and discontent but these feelings eventually lead to enlightenment, illumination, clarity.

The Hermit represents a wise, inspirational person, friend, teacher, therapist. This a person who can shine a light on things that were previously mysterious and confusing.

Discussing stuff with a coworker in another department, and the fact that I'm the only IT guy in tomorrow came up...

CO-WORKER: So tomorrow you're your own boss then?

ME: I'm always my own boss. Just some days I take more suggestions.

Your Score: Dune

Your world is 59% Sophisticated, 72% Unconventional, and 39% Intense!

You live in the worlds of Dune. Preferably the last two books in the series, in terms of timeline, as that's when things are genuinely intelligent, probable, and weird as hell... but not too intense. Not intense, I should add, because you're probably a Bene Gesserit or trained by one, which means you've learned to take anything and everything in stride. You can probably move faster than we can see, comprehend a complex obstacle and the potential solutions at a glance, and stop your heart with a thought. But you also probably won't ever fall in love, listen to music, or do anything else which will evoke too much of that inconvenient thing called emotion. But hey! To you it's probably worth it to be able to move any muscle in your body at will or traverse the collected memories of your ancestors.

Y'know, now I've joined [ profile] writing_shadows I have even less excuse for not writing my Talks-With-City Awakening fiction I've had in my head for some time now...

As SysAdmin at work, today I sent out the following email to all the staff...

"Until further notice, all requests for support from the IT department must be submitted in triplicate, using the form found in \dev\null [note: This was a hyperlink, although it didn't actually point anywhere real].

Thankyou for your time."

So far two people have fallen for it, including my mother, who really should know better...

I found the following whilst trawling the net randomly, and it amused me enough to share. It's one of those "Who would win in a fight..." things.

Bester vs. Darth Vader

This is an interesting match... the evil psychic vs. the evil demi-god. Darth is one of the most recognizable villains of all time, and has been around since Star Wars. Plus, he has James Earl Jones' voice. Kick ass.

Round 1

Darth, having just sliced Luke's hand off, heads back to Cloud City's docking pad. Along the way, he bumps into Bester, who is reading a book entitled "Bespin on 80 Credits a Day". The book goes flying and hits a Stormtrooper in the back, causing the cover to fall off. Bester turns, enraged. "How dare you! I'm Psi Corps!" he yells, waving his little badge.

Round 2

Vader slices the badge in two with his lightsaber. "Don't piss me off, Chekov!" he yells, and then wheezes a couple times.

Round 3

Bester is pissed! He draws his PPG and shoots Vader in the chest before he can react. Vader looks down at the little indicators on his chest, and noticed that a few have stopped. "Ha!" he wheezes. "You only got the special effects!"

Round 4-7

The two circle, Bester with his PPG, Darth with his lightsaber. The stormtroopers crack out popcorn and Junior Mints.

Round 8

Bester blinks, and frowns. "Why are we fighting?" he asks. Darth tilts his head and thinks. "I dunno. Want to take over the world?" "Sure."

Round 9
Bester and Darth take over the world.


Both of 'em.

Got a fairly large amount of Magic: The gathering cards to give (or even sell, if someone will pay) away. From Unlimited to 5th edition, incuding Arabian Nights, and the full Fallen Empires set (I think I have another complete set too).

Any interest?
nadriel: (Default)
Hmm. I'm thinking of amusing myself by creating a Mind Control/Psionic Assuault Dominator called The King In Yellow.

That is all.
nadriel: (star wars silly)
I have nothing else to say than: Emperor Palpatine Award (For being Devious and Underhanded or something similar- I forget the exact wording :P)

Within Temptation are just as good, if not better, live as they are recorded. And they're pretty damn good recorded...
nadriel: (What Would Richard Do?)
I haven't got this yet. I now hear there's a signing on the 13th. Maybe I should wait before buying it...

So, after some discussion and a few mild hijinks, or Garou pack settled on Quicksilver Fox as our totem. Now all we had to do to convince him to be our totem was do something in London that he'd find impressive.

So we're looking at style, cunning, and so on, and eventually we pulled off the following:

Went and got some special monopoly money printed off with a foxes head on it.

Got it dedicated to our Ragabash alpha [ profile] dainul.

Found a poker game that was being run as a scam (it was rigged), managed to get one of the pack into the game.

While he was playing, the rest of the pack were in the Umbra. The Ragabash disabled the cameras by means of disabling the relevant spirits. At which point, the two Ahrouns (myself and [ profile] pmp) drop out of the Umbra behind the guy guarding the safe and knock him out.

The Ragabash then follows through, uses sneaky Ragabash tricks to get the safe open, and swaps out the cash from the poker game (still going on) with the foxopoly money. We then peg it out, using a couple of gifts to ensure we get away clean.

The remaining pack member then proceeds to win the rigged game, despite it being rigged, whereupon the switch is discovered, and he is apologised to, and walks away with a promise of his winnings once the thieves are caught.

We then donate the money to a fund for rebuilding Camden (in the game world, it got hit by a freak sandstorm that devastated it. *twitches slgihtly as another character*).

And walk away with a new totem, and a small degree of smugness (as well as some apprehension, as we have some thoughts about the identities of those we robbed).

But hey, it was fun, and it was really nice of all the people involved who STed and NPCed to take the afternoon out to help us enact the abridged version of Ocean's 11, Garou-style :-)
