Once again my favorite author Neil Gaimen (of Sandman, Stardust, Neverwhere, Angels and Visitation, Anasi Boys, Good Omens, and American Gods) has just put one of his best novels online for free! Speaking of American Gods, here it is:
Harper Collins Publishers
It’s only available for about a month, so don’t miss your chance to read this fantastic novel.
thats so awesome
My excitement is significantly muted by my lack of fanboydom in Babylon 5.
me: bah! I have all 5 seasons on DVD and have watched them multiple times.
vigilante.angel: You’re a dorkosaurus. King of the dorkosaurs.
me: have you ever watched it? Its good stuff.
vigilante.angel: When one of the other Dorkasaurs kills a noob, they lay the still-warm noobflesh ‘neath your nerdly talons, for you are Dorkosaurus Rex, king of the dorkosaurs, and you get first pick of the kill.
I’m sorry, what were you saying? I was busy being all mockumentary-voicey.
Nashua Fight Practice
when: 5:30ish tonight
where: old commuter parking lot area
Description:Some people have been complaining that we haven’t had a practice recently. I can’t say that I blame them. Needless to say some of them have decided to start fight practice back up at the area near Commuter Parking lot tonight.
It’s cold out there, please dress warmly.
The following is an email I sent to the Realms OOC list, but really it applies to a much broader audience then just them…

Greetings Denizens of the Realms Community,
As you may (or may not be) aware this years EGC and EHC meetings were (will
be) held in Nashua NH at 45 High St in a building owned by Harbor
Homes, Inc. Harbor Homes, is a non-profit company for provides many
different types of services to the homeless and mentally ill. What you may
not know is that they also provide transitional housing for homeless
Veterans, varies support groups for alcoholics, training seminars and
workshops to provide individuals with a better skill set to improve lives.
More information about the company and its subsidiaries can be found at:
Although they gave us the use of the facilities for free, I thought that it
might be nice if we consider donating some money to the cause(s) that they
support. Harbor Homes (and Affiliates) is a worthy cause in this day and
age where most would prefer to turn a blind eye to the problems that the
citizens of this country face.
Did you know that a $115 donation can house individuals in their Emergency
Shelter for six nights?
Just last year they opened a brand new Veterans Transitional Housing unit
for honorably discharged homeless veterans and their families here in Nashua
with 20 units called Buckingham Place. One of the first homeless
veteran housing programs to shelter men, women, and children under one roof
in the country. And this is just the tip of the iceberg of the great things
that this company has done in its 25 year history.
Thank you for your time, if you are interested in donating please feel free
to do so through their webpage, or contact me.
Proud to be an employee for almost 5 years now,
Neil S. Tozier

The Event Goers Council Meeting has come and gone. Rel as moderator was very efficient (even if he was admittedly in a hurry to make it to a Super Bowl party). He kept things on track, and as in the past did a good job of keeping things moving and orderly. My hat off to you.
Once again this year I did not vote at this meeting. In the effort of not having to explain again why not, simply put, I am an event holder. I have my vote at the EHC Meeting in a few weeks.
