A lot of you know me as Slug. Some of you don't. Some of you call me Slug, some of you don't. There are mixed feelings about this nickname, some like it, some hate it. Forgetting all that, it's a nickname I've had since 11th grade when a couple friends (you know who you are) at a party gave me the name – it stuck… hard. Personally, I like the name. To me it's nothing but a name. Most of if not all of the folks who still call me that say it out of adoration and not hostility. In fact I don't know if it's ever been used in a negative way.

Well, without further ado, something I've wanted to have for a long time, I give you . Please update your links; the blog is now located at and the Gallery is now located at . Thank you Oozy for getting all this up and running and for being the best damn web host EVAR.

Folks, I know it's been a long, long time since any photos were posted to my Gallery . (See previous post for main reason) Well, I'm hoping to get back into the habit of doing so, and I have a LOT of photos to share. So be patient with me (if you're reading this, I think you already are) and keep bugging me to get more up!

First up are some pics of Kyle & Anna from this winter, the College Park Aviation Museum, Christmas @ Bruce & Dotz's and some recent work on my model railroad. I hope you enjoy.

Warcraft has been a huge time sink in my life over the last few months. In fact, on one of my characters alone I've spent 16 solid days of my life playing. I have enjoyed every minute (save those when getting ganked by Horde) and plan on spending many more. Warcraft allows you to choose from various races and classes and further customize your character by choosing various talents (doled out 1 point at a time each time you level up), professions and skills.

For my first character, now my Main, I chose a Human Warrior spec'd out in Arms and Fury talents. For all you Warcraft geeks out there, here's a link to my talent trees as of level 50, where I currently am. For professions I chose Blacksmith/Mining of which I'm up to 262/276, which allows me to make some great weapons/armor. Anyway, I'm having fun w/ this and it's a work in progress. Kristin is leveling up her Mage character (currently 43) and both of us have started new Alts to enjoy the low level game play once again. I've said it before, this is hands-down one of the best video games I've ever played. I'm having a blast leveling the characters and I have been lucky to get into a great Guild with tremendous talent and potential for end game play. To battle!

So well put. This is one of the things I hate most about the internets, online gaming (say, in HALO when you get trash-talked by a teenager because you didn't get 26 kills), and email lists. Folks need to think before they type… is that too much to ask?

Northwards and Downwards

Filed under: Blogging — bsullivan @ 11:18 am

A trip a long time in the making is finally happening this weekend. On Thursday I'm leaving work around 2pm and heading North. I'll pick up Bob & Brett in Wilmington and then we're off to Rutland, VT for 3 days of skiing. It's been a long time since I've been to Vermont and I miss it. I first skiied at Ski Roundtop in PA on a Fourth Presbyterian Church youth retreat back in 1991. I learned to ski in VT back in Jan '96 with Bob & Brett. That trip was a riot. I turned 21 while there and spent the evening at this place, drinking beer with the locals and being served by a bartender that closely resembled (and may have been; it was off-season) Santa Claus. After that trip I was hooked on skiing and hooked on Vermont. Between that winter and '99 I must have driven up to Vermont about 12 times with these guys and others. It has a very special spot in my memory.

Which is why I'm particularly siked about this trip. It's been a long time since I've been up there (last time was with Kristin back in 2002, I think) and it's been even longer since I had a trip with Bob & Brett. It'll be tough (I'm way out of shape and haven't skiied much in the last few years) but worth it. I hope to have some pics to share when I get back. No doubt I'll have stories.
