Good gamer karma

I am so impressed by this sweet, sad story.

Blizzard Entertainment, the company behind the hugely popular World of Warcraft (yes, we play it...a lot. :) ), joined with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to grant a young gamer's dream - a trip to Blizzard headquarters. The developers worked with 10-year-old Ezra, who has a brain tumor, to create a character and quest that will be added to the game in a few weeks.

I think I need to go spend some time with Pfeffa, my Draenei Shaman. It's Children's Week in WOW, and I can get my own good karma on by taking an orphan adventuring with me.

I love my WOW. :)

I may be old, but I'm still cool.

Because I'm
younger than video games!

Wow. I wasn't sure if that title would even fit. But, it had to. Because that is what this Saturday is!

May 5, 2007 is Cinco de Mayo Free Comic Book Shannon and Andy Baby Shower Day!

What is Cinco de Mayo Free Comic Book Shannon and Andy Baby Shower Day, you ask?

Well, isn't is obvious? :)

Cinco de Mayo is the Mexican national holiday marking the victory of the Mexican Army over the French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. It is traditionally celebrated with mucho margaritas and guacamole.

Free Comic Book Day is always on the first Saturday in May, which happens to be May 5 this year. Stop by your nearest comic book shop and pick up some free reading material. I think I'll get the Legion of Super Heroes in the 31st Century...or The Lone Ranger/New Battlestar Galactica...or The Unseen Peanuts. It's so hard to decide!


The most important thing happening this Saturday is...

Shannon and Andy's Baby Shower!

At Shannon's request, myself and a few of her friends are throwing her the standard Margarita Party Baby Shower. Yup, it's a Fetus Fiesta!

Bright red, green, yellow, purple and orange striped lanterns and tablecloths! Fruity party toothpicks for the Mexican hors d'oeuvres! Flowery parasols for the margaritas! (Yes, Shannon will be drinking virgin margaritas.) Salsa! Guacamole! Tropical fruits in a chocolate fountain!

Everything a good baby shower needs.

And don't worry. Despite Shannon's vehement protests, there WILL be pictures.
