11:07 pm: Dodge ball
Just got home from Dodge Ball. Had a blast!!!

Our team needs some practice though... lol... We won about 3 games... That would be good if we only got a few games in but we must have played about 15 to 20 games :P

We need to start catching the ball. We can throw and dodge well but the team kept turning things around on us by catching so much. They had one guy who must have been like 400 lbs and was SO SLOW. We all thought he was going to be an easy person to get out. Turns out the guy could catch almost everything thrown at him and threw the ball like it was a brick. We hopefully will learn quickly. Playoffs start in March.

Oh well... I have to miss the next two games because of my trip but I can't wait for my next one after!!!

My legs feel like painful jelly... I can just tell they are going to be worse when I wake up.

Hello all… Thought it was about time to post again. Have had a lot going on the past bit and have even more coming up.

1) I have joined the organizer/storyteller team for “Edmonton VtM” that Steve and Jeremy started about a year ago. We have about 45 players and average over 30 players at each game. Over the past month we have had about 10 or more people create characters though so that most likely will increase.

Next game (Sat Jan 19th) is going to be a large masquerade ball event. We have about 20 actors showing up for the event. Been a lot of work but it is going to be worth it this Saturday. If anyone wishes to come or is interested in learning more about the game, please feel free to call me (966-7333).

2) January 24th at 9:00am my plane is taking off for the Dominican Republic. Hope I don’t sleep in and will be on it. It will be my first time out of Canada and my first time seeing the ocean. I am very excited!!!

3) Got a promotion at work. My new position is official as of today. I am looking forward to the new position. It is more analytical work and less data entry/investigative work. I also got a better desk/station.

4) My first dodge ball game is tonight at 9pm. Played a bit with my family (cousins) on Boxing Day and seemed to do okay. We will see how well our team does tonight though.

Anyway I hope things are going as well for you all as they have been going to me recently. I will be sure to post some time soon after my trip and let you all know how it went.

11:57 pm: Ello all!
Ello all out there. I haven't posted in awhile but I do read my friends updates every day so don't think because I am not posting I am ignoring you all.

Been very busy the past little while and will continue to be busy over the next while. Lots new in my life right now:

1. Very happy about the relationship I am in right now :)

2. Going to be part of a dodgeball team. Our games start in mid-January. I will be playing Wednesday evenings.

3. X-mas shopping and planning. Going to spend X-mas eve with Vanessa's family and then X-mas day with my dad's side of the family. Boxing day I have a Dotto family reunion at Arch Bishop school.

4. Trip to Dominican Republic coming up at the end of January. Going to be exciting as this is going to be the first time I have been outside Canada.

5. Lots of games. Four LARPs, D&D games and a tabletop mage game Kristi will be running soon.

6. Work is slow. On Friday I was done all my work at 10am and had to sit there doing nothing until 5:00pm. People need to buy more cars in December and January and less cars in July and August!

7. Don't have needles in my eyes.

May be more going on but just can't think right now. I will try to post more often in the future. Have a great day all!

05:56 pm: Games!
If you currently not in Jeremy's or Tyron's vampire game you should be. They are both great games.

If you like old school vampire than Jeremy's game is where you want to be.

If you want to try something new then Tyron's game is something you will want to look in to. It is very politcal and things like status, position, backgrounds, ect... mean something for once and just aren't a title. If you are tired of 'white wolf' this game will show you that it is worth coming back to if done differently.

If your interested in either give me a call, 966-7333, or reply/e-mail me.

03:36 pm: Last nights game.
I had worries about Tyron's game last night due to the fact that things were going to work much differently than any of us are use to but it went better than most games I have played using the rules from the book directly! I had an absolutly great time. I highly suggest everyone play.

Urban Rivals

Worth taking a look at if you like quick strategy games with a bit of luck involved for flavor. You can play for free. You start with 8 guys and level them up. Very quick to learn. The starter guide takes 30 seconds to read. The rest you figure out in the first bit of the game. They have tournaments multiple times a day as well if you enjoy competitive play. Enjoy.

10:18 pm: I love online poker.
Most people who play online poker have no clue how to play poker at all. I use to play quite a bit but got bored so cashed out. On an average weekend (4 hour on Sat and 4 on Sun) I could usally make about $400 US. I was at Rory's today playing D&D and got home about 9:30pm. PartyPoker gave me $40 free this week to try and convince me to start playing there again. In the past 45 minutes I have cashed out $290 and still have $55 in the game left to play with...

Did I mention I love online poker ;)

Anyway I am off to sleep.

04:37 pm: Ahhh... I feel so great!!!
Went swimming today. It has been way to long since I have done so. I use to swim a lot when I was younger (early 20s) and as sad is it is to admit did aqua fitness with my ex when we were together. I love swimming and will be doing so daily now. I got a four month pass at the University pools. The plan for now is 6-7pm (Mon-Fri), 2-3pm (Sat) and 10-11am (Sun).

About two weeks ago I started a personal 'renovation' of myself. This is one of many things that are part of it.

Anyway I will update more later. Going to enjoy this feeling for the rest of the day until tomorrow when I am too sore to even get out of bed ;)

Going to a wedding at the end of the month. Been awhile since I have been to a wedding. How much does one normally spend on a gift for a wedding these days? It is for a cousin.
