The Man with the Laughs





Gooooooooood-byyyyyyye Vietnaaaaam! That's right, I'm history... I'm outta here. I got the lucky ticket home, baby. Rollin, rollin, rollin'... keep them wagons rollin', rawhide! Yeah, that's right... the final Adrian Cronauer broadcast... and this one is brought to you by our friends at the Pentagon. Remember the people who brought you Korea? That's right, the U.S. Army. If it's being done correctly, here or abroad, it's probably not being done by the Army.







In honor of Robin Williams, I've decided to forsake the rules and simple post a lot of what made him special to us: his humor and ability to make us laugh!!


Genie: [turns into a cheerleader] Rick 'em, rack 'em, rock 'em, rake! Stick that sword into that snake!
Jafar: You stay out of this!
Genie: [Weakly] Jafar, Jafar, he's our man; if he can't do it, great!

When Christopher Reeve was in the hospital after his accident, Robin came to visit him. Reeve said this about that surprise visit:
Then, at an especially bleak moment, the door flew open and in hurried a squat fellow with a blue scrub hat and a yellow surgical gown and glasses, speaking in a Russian accent. He announced that he was my proctologist, and that he had to examine me immediately...it was Robin Williams...for the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay.
When Stephan Spielberg was filming "Schindler's List", Robin would call him to cheer him up. I think I only called him once, maybe twice. I called him when I was representing People for the Valdheimers Association. A society devoted to helping raise money to help older Germans who had forgotten everything before 1945. I remember him laughing and going 'thank you.'"

On the plus side, my University year is now over. Now just the anxious wait for the results.

Not much really. Waiting for results, reading up a storm (will update the reading thread soon), working, gf being a pain in the ass.

You know, the usual..

Oh, and playing Victoria 2. Loving my current Persian campaign where i have taken over Afghanistan and some other parts.

Just finished working the day before Thanksgiving in a major supermarket chain. Pretty exhausted, but in good spirits thanks to my friends/coworkers who were with me through it all.

Doing a fair amount of reading as well and working on 'public story' as a side project to my in-progress novel. Cooking Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow (turkey, ham, etc.) and afterwards going to ponder what to get on Black Friday. Currently have a PS4, Xbox One and a gaming laptop in a battle royale for my hard-earned money.

How many of us have survived the hangover of 1 January?

I did.

I am just wakening from my coma.

THanks, General, for the appreciation. It was fun to make, but did cost some precious hours.

Not much to report on my end. Still swamped with work and family/social obligations so I haven't had as much time to write as I'd like. Doing some life changes though so hopefully I'll have the first part of my new story for the Bardic Circle done and a complete rough draft of Right of Kings done before summer.

Other than that, I shaved my head a few days ago Feels very refreshing and the TWH Facebook has 307 likes and counting!

*Awakens from Coma*

Hey all.

Well, Monday it is and i am back to uni for the year. Was kinda missing it to be honest, my job was being too much of a pain in the ass.

What did everyone think of the new Star Wars?

Rather liked it, actually. Trench run was a bit gratuitous, and was initially disappointed by how easily the main villain went down in the lightsaber fight, but I remembered he was shot by Chewie's bowcaster and shouldn't have even been standing.

It'll look better if the second and third films are different and good I think. They had to bridge 30 years.
