Apparently, I am insane

I Am A: Chaotic Neutral Elf Fighter

Chaotic Neutral characters are unstable, and frequently insane. They believe in disorder first and foremost, and will thus strive for that disorder in everything they do. This means that they will do whatever seems 'fun' or 'novel' at any given time.

Elves are the eldest of all races, although they are generally a bit smaller than humans. They are generally well-cultured, artistic, easy-going, and because of their long lives, unconcerned with day-to-day activities that other races frequently concern themselves with. Elves are, effectively, immortal, although they can be killed. After a thousand years or so, they simply pass on to the next plane of existance.

Fighters are the warriors. They use weapons to accomplish their goals. This isn't to say that they aren't intelligent, but that they do, in fact, believe that violence is frequently the answer.

Pepsi Kona 1999

Once upon a time, circa 1998 or 1999, I was living in Philadelphia when Pepsi launched a new drink, a blend of pepsi and coffee, and called it Kona.

Has anyone out there heard of Pepsi Kona? No one I've asked. And there's a good reason for that. The drink was pepsi with a coffee after-taste. In a word: revolting.

Now, six years later, some idiots at Coke have come up with the same dumb idea. Read about it here.

Coca-Cola Co. , the world's No. 1 soft drink company, on Wednesday said it will launch a coffee-infused soft drink called Coca-Cola Blak in various markets around the world in 2006.

The Once and Future Blog

Once upon a time, I had a blog. Then I deleted it. New posts coming as soon as I photograph some things.

In the meantime:

I have started reading a bunch of weight-loss/weight-management/weight-acceptance blogs. I have no idea why they fascinate me so. I'm not trying to lose weight, although I am trying to train for a 10K. (I have gone running approximately four times in the last three months in preparation.) The bloggers seem to be interesting, funny people who are struggling with a huge challenge. I suppose it's nice to be reminded of what other people go through every day just living, since otherwise I tend to get wrapped up in frustrating issues at work.
