If I Was Ever In A War,

I'd want Leeroy on my team 'cause he ain't no chicken. Yes, I've finally given in to my darker impulses. I was a Blizzard gamer for many years. Warcraft, Warcraft 2, Diablo, Starcraft, Diablo 2, and Warcraft 3. However, about five years ago, I made the switch to console gaming. The Dreamcast and the Xbox were my friends. The past year, with my Xbox broken and not having the time to play that would justify buying an Xbox 360, I've had to rely solely on my Sony PSP, which is cool, but it's a BART only type of game system.

Well, I've finally given in. A friend of mine is an artist at Blizzard for World of Warcraft. I signed up for my Free 10 Day Trial (yes, that's a hint) and now I am hooked. Oh, by the way, that Leeroy Jenkins clip at the top contains profanity, so be advised if you'd rather not hear that. Maybe I should have put that warning up top. Oh, well.

Both the Leeroy clip and this South Park WoW clip are fairly well known, but something tells me that most of my loyal readers have lives and have probably not heard of World of Warcraft before. Enjoy. Let me know when you'll be joining the online sensation (over 7.5 million players) and want to play. I'm currently a level 12 Night Elf Rogue in the Uldaman realm. I'm questing baby, questing.

Oh, and don't worry about this taking time away from Zane or Liz. Liz is an Undead Mage and Zane is a Troll Hunter. I just taught him how to chop a boar in half with his axe. I was so proud.

I don't have much of a passion for candy. Ice cream, yes. Cheesecake, yes. Candy bars, hard candies, suckers, no. However, last year I was introduced to these and I must say that I was smitten. The good thing is that they are limited edition, which means that finding them in stores is tough. The bad thing is that when you do find them, you buy every last bag on the shelf. Such an occasion occurred last week and I have now eaten two bags in about 9 days. I'm not counting calories at this point. I'm counting notches on the belt.

What My Family Doesn't Know

Is that I make the best menudo on the planet. Tripe, calf's foot, hominy, and three kinds of chiles. Don't tell grandma though. I'd like to remain on her good side.

It's up to us kids to take the recipes that have been handed down to us and to improve them. Some might not think that possible, but trust me, it can be done. Witness the drunkin turkey, the spanish rice, and now the menudo. However, nobody will ever make a better deep fried cheeseburger than my father.
