What a Great Day for Muppet Labs, Part 2

The muppets stamps are even better than I suspected. There's a Henson stamp as well as the muppets, and each muppet has a quote and signature on the back of the sheet. All the quotes are great, but I especially like Sam the Eagle
I am humbled and honored to be a on a stamp issued by this great nation. Out of respect for the U.S. Postal Service and yours truly, please do not put me on a letter with any of these other weirdoes. Patriotically yours, Sam the Eagle

and Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, Ph.D., Esq (BBC Interview):
Oh Beakie, what a great day for Muppet Labs! We’ve made ourselves completely flat and pasted ourselves to an envelope. Isn’t science nifty!?

Maybe it's just me, but I think it's a nice touch.

Age of Empires 3 ate my brain all weekend. It's fiendishly addictive. You have been warned.

The only break from compulsive Empire-building was for a Saturday brunch, which was a success because the power went out for not quite an hour. This affected almost nothing except the bill. They comped us some champagne, but honestly, the heater steam tables still kept food hot and the baked desserts , though the ovens were out and there was no more coffee or fresh juice. The entire restaurant cheered when the light came back; it doesn't take much to draw people together. I must remember to brunch without electricity more often.

I thrashed my way through a rewrite of Chapter 18 on Sunday night. After all my complaints about POV in one of the Writer's Retreat submissions, it turns out I can mangle POV as well as anyone when I really put my mind to it. As a result, I'll work to resolved the Chapter 17/18 sequencing problem. Will probably have to cut one of these chapters, and right now the odds are against 18.

Sam the Eagle is fulfilling another patriotic duty today. He was my choice of stamp for my abstentee ballot.

I'm deep into Civ4, myself. I hear AoE3 is quite good, but I'm a Civilization fan through and through.

shellyinseattle is the Civ gamer in the house. Given the months and years she has spent playing it, I can no longer stand the game.

The beauty of Age of Empires is that it's got this customizable Civ thing going: you can fine-tune your empire's powers, just like a CCG deck, between games.

I'm definitely going to try Age of Empires. I like what I've heard about it. My former roommate, with whom I spent days and days with a LAN setup playing Starcraft, has it; I've no doubt we'll end up playing both in MP online.
