Done my exit interview, expecting details about my FREE MONEY! in the mail in a day or two. Still waiting on reference, finished most of my work though.

After tomorrow its 11 days of hard core relaxation - in theory at least. More likely it'll involve hours of World of Warcraft, chasing escaped rabbits, rendering and generally catching up on all the things I like to do that are also not entirely relaxing. The big bonus will be in not being afraid the phone is going to call with some problem or other.
The one promise I'm making myself is that I'll do some writing during that time, possibly the interview with Lucifer Jones for UW that I've been meaning to do for days.

*edit* and like I said, rendering - I have a list of things to do as long as your arm, though most of them involve first investing in more cooling for the computer. Its tough to be me.

"11 days of hard core relaxation"

Arg! There go all my chances of getting to work on time.

Speaking of WoW, do you know where one gets a Mini Diablo Lord of Terror? Just so Dave can say "Check out my Mini Diablo Lord of Terror". Someone did tell him the other day, but he is Goldfish Boy and he forgot...

You can't just get one unfortunately, it was a special gift, only available to people who bought the collectors edition (which I've never even SEEN here)- you could also get a zergling or a tiny giant panda.
Other than them its just snakes, cats, rabbits, prarie dogs, cockroaches, cockrels, hawks, owls and parrots (and a few others)

Thanks, not sure which edition Dave's got but I don't remember it being obviously a collectors ed, and such things usually yell about it pretty loudly. Bother.
A who? What on earth is a zergling???
"Tiny giant panda"! Heh! We confused the hell out of one of our French students one year by saying "Golly, that's a big little owl" as one flew past. Took quite a while to explain to the poor lad that there is a species of owl in Britain called a Little Owl, and that particular one was an unusually large example of said species...

Zerglings are monsters from one of the older blizzard games - Starcraft, a real time strategy game, one of those genre redefining ones actually. The pandas are awesome, I mean they do nothing, just like my owl, robo squirrel and my parrot but something about a panda says style.

I can see the stylishness of having a wee giant panda following you about. It says classy in a way that nothing else quite does.

Thats part of the reason I need more cooling - one naked chick is easy enough to handle, four of them, plus a dude, flames and a guitar is quite another matter.
