Fear the Silence

I was playing around with Acid Music Studio and ended up creepifying the song "Enjoy the Silence" by Depeche Mode.

The Ark of Mesopotamia

Best game description ever: "The Ark of Mesopotamia. This is a no-brainer charades game for the blind in which the players are undead time travelers who are trying to protect jewels in order to score the most mine shafts."

Generated randomly at Check Out My New Boardgame!. Thanks to Shannon Prickett for the link.

I can't for the life of me figure out how you would make a charades game for the blind. It would almost have to involve inappropriate touching.

If I have a boy and a girl someday, I want to name them Filbert and Hazel.

Alien Encounter

Last night I woke up around 3:00am because I was being scanned by aliens. Okay, well, that was the first thing that popped into my head. There was a beeping sound coming from outside and I was vibrating or resonating or something as I lay in bed. As the beeping got louder, the vibrating worsened. Then it would get quieter and the vibrating would lessen. The whole thing probably only lasted for less than a minute. The vibrating was weird — maybe vibrating isn't the best word. It felt more like all the molecules in my body were electrified, but it wasn't painful.

So, admittedly there is a more than likely chance that I dreamed this; it happened in the middle of the night, the facts of it are already fading from my memory, I didn't get up to investigate or turn on the light, and it's pretty unusual. But it was pretty real feeling. Normally, when I dream, there are many weird little inconsistencies, like I'm living in a different house or I'm trying to read something and it keeps changing. However, I distinctly remember waking up in my own bed right when it started to happen and looking at the clock when it was over, just as if it were an earthquake (I checked earthquake activity for last night and there wasn't any).

I stayed awake for a while after it happened, listening. But I don't think I remained awake for long.

Brina had been sleeping in my bed that evening, but she had gotten up sometime before that and gone to her bed. Too bad she wasn't there for the whole night — I probably would have woken her up to see if she had felt anything. I asked her this morning if she had experienced anything unusual in her room, but she hadn't.

Maybe the raccoons are testing a new bread-stealing technology.
