The View from the Ivory Tower

Maybe it's my job. Maybe it's being a writer.

The thing is, I'm starting to get nervous what with all the reports of earthquakes in Peru, Japan, Indonesia, in Utah. Then there are the storms we've been having. Plus the financial shake-ups in the world markets. I know I've been in this business way too long when I start to see patterns everywhere.

So really, is it end of the world time again and no one told me? If I was feeling inspired, I could come up with a story involving the mysterious Illuminati and their search for a missing artifact that sends natural disasters roiling across the world. Or the virtual invasion of the Elder Gods of the Internet has sent financial markets tumbling.

Either that or I better lay off the coffee.

(and it seems i also must partake of that most sacred of ritual sacrifices, the 'laying off of the coffee')

Sorry, I'm the anti-Christ and it's not yet my birthday. So the end of the world isn't due until one more month.

fuhrer: Too true, especially with the latest hurricane news.

skinny: Heh it's not so bad. The concept of the DVC is good but the execution was really, really bad.

charles: Hmmm... is there free food? I am so there.
