[11:20] <@SpeedRcrX> Dammit Michi is pissed at me AGAIN
[11:20] <// J_Daito //> LOL why for now
[11:21] <@SpeedRcrX> Because I cleaned my room
[11:21] <// J_Daito //> ....
[11:21] <// J_Daito //> you CLEANED it?!
[11:21] * // J_Daito // just... stops there
[11:21] <@SpeedRcrX> WTF F[BLEEP]k you man
[11:22] <@SpeedRcrX> I can clean s[BLEEP]t once in a while
[11:22] <// J_Daito //> Yes, every time there's a lunar eclipse or something
[11:22] <@SpeedRcrX> Yeah well she's pissed and I have NO FREAKING CLUE why you'd think she'd be HAPPY
[11:23] <Mdm_Maestro> I'll tell you why.
[11:27] <Mdm_Maestro> Because I can sit there and beg her to clean it for days and weeks and she refuses.
[11:28] <Mdm_Maestro> But let someone ELSE ask (Aya Reiko), and all of a sudden it's done, and I get asked to see the result
[11:28] <Mdm_Maestro> Instantly
[11:28] * // J_Daito // snickers
[11:29] <@SpeedRcrX> You should just be glad it gets done, you're so f[BLEEP]king annoying about it
[11:29] <Mdm_Maestro> THIS is why I get annoying about it, idiot :P
[11:29] <// J_Daito //> catfight, catfight!
[11:30] <Mdm_Maestro> ¬_¬ no.
[11:30] * @SpeedRcrX fails to see any kind of problem with it
[11:30] <Mdm_Maestro> You made me a third wheel in my own relationship
[11:32] <@SpeedRcrX> I don't mean to :P
[11:32] <Mdm_Maestro> Here's a hint. clean it for *me* sometimes.
[11:33] <Mdm_Maestro> Without my having to beg. (Not that that accomplishes much, anyway)
[11:33] <Mdm_Maestro> Then I wouldn't be so annoyed.
[11:33] <@SpeedRcrX> You're so complicated
[11:34] <Mdm_Maestro> It's not *that* complicated an idea, Haruka!
[11:36] <Mdm_Maestro> Don't do it for everyone *else* but me :P
[11:36] <Mdm_Maestro> That just makes me feel...
[11:36] <// J_Daito //> Neglected? Left out? Ignored? Unworthy?
[11:37] * // J_Daito // steeples his palms together. "Excellent".
[11:37] <@SpeedRcrX> But *the room is clean*. That's what you *wanted*. and I let you see it :P
[11:38] <Mdm_Maestro> I *wanted* you to clean it as a favor to *me*, not to Aya Reiko, with me as the afterthought :P
[11:38] <@SpeedRcrX> Man, *me* *me* *me* you're so self-centered
[11:50] <Mdm_Maestro> I could just shake you sometimes ><
[11:50] <// J_Daito //> SHAKE THE BABY
[12:07] <@SpeedRcrX> man if it makes you feel better i'll let you see me in my senxy halloween costume
[12:07] <@SpeedRcrX> ^sexy

[12:07] <Mdm_Maestro> ...
[12:08] <// J_Daito //> Is it working
[12:08] <// J_Daito //> Is it working
[12:08] <Mdm_Maestro> Perhaps.
[12:08] * Mdm_Maestro bops Haruka on the head lightly
[12:08] <Mdm_Maestro> Just try to think about these things, sometimes, dear.
[12:09] * Mdm_Maestro is away: :)
[12:09] <@SpeedRcrX> Personally I think she's being unreasonable
[12:09] <// J_Daito //> Well not that I give a s[BLEEP]t but why do you tell her no and then turn around and do it for others?
[12:10] <@SpeedRcrX> Because I feel like it?
[12:10] <// J_Daito //> Works for me
[12:10] <[gTV]Red Crow> Hate to break up this scintillating discussion (no I don't)
[12:11] <[gTV]Red Crow> but check out this evil tale of woe forwarded by Wolfwood:
[12:11] <// J_Daito //> They guy with the cross? Isn't he dead?
[12:11] <[gTV]Red Crow> Not that one.
[12:12] <[gTV]Red Crow> This came from the "Order of the Stick":
[12:12] <[gTV]Red Crow>:

As has been reported by a few other gaming blogs and news sites, the Charity Auction at this year's GenCon Indianapolis was held to benefit Gary Gygax's favorite charity, which I will not name here for reasons that will soon become obvious. The fine folks at GenCon raised over ,000 for this charity, which helps starving children in impovershed areas of the world--only to have that money actually turned down by the charity. The charity refused due to the fact that the money was raised partly by the sales of Dungeons and Dragons materials, which as we all know, puts an irrevocable taint of evil on the filthy lucre that us demon-worshipping gamers might want to use to, say, donate to starving children. Not only is this a slap in the face to every gamer, but it is especially insulting to Mr. Gygax himself, who I understand donated to their cause many times over the years. Plus, I'm sure the children who would have gotten food or clean drinking water with that money would be sort of upset, too.

I bring this story to your attention not simply so that you might let the people at this charity know how you feel (especially if you have donated to it before, as many did in the wake of Mr. Gygax's passing), but so that you would be aware that there is an alternative charity that I would personally recommend (based on our own charitable giving) if you have a desire to donate money to help starving children. Plan USA is a worldwide charity aimed at helping those who live in poverty and/or have suffered from a natural disaster, particularly with monthly sponsorships of individual children. Since the money of D&D players is clearly not welcome at this other charity, I can't recommend Plan USA highly enough to those interested in giving anyway. At least if you choose to donate through them, there's no chance your generous gifts to the starving children of the world will be rejected due to your weekend hobby.

(Incidentally, GenCon was also able to find another worthy charity with an entirely different focus, the Fisher House Foundation, that was willing to accept the money given in good faith by GenCon attendees.)


[12:14] <@SpeedRcrX> Wow that REALLY sucks ass.
[12:15] <[gTV]Red Crow> Yup
[12:15] <[gTV]Red Crow> Also, in order to get the comics schedule back on track, here's another:

[12:17] <// J_Daito //> So that's where that went
[12:18] <@SpeedRcrX> You meant I ate... I ate...
[12:18] <// J_Daito //> yup
