I find myself once again looking down the barrel of a new year. But this one is new and different then others of the past. I share this one with my new bride, the joy of my life. We saw the old year out with sniffles as the four of us had a cold to some degree as the year ended. The women folk seemed to have gotten the worst of it though.

With the Holidays over, the homefront is hoping to see renewed time to dedicated to the upkeep of the apartment and the tenants. in other words, I need to hit the gym. clothes that used to fit me half a year ago, are now a bit snug. man, i hate exercise.

The new year rings in another year of gaming with my MMO friends. City of Heroes/Villains (CoX) is old new, World of Warcraft (WoW) has long been abandoned, Dungeon and Dragons Online : Stormreach (DDO) sits by the wayside. While we eagerly await Warhammer: Age of Reckoning (WAR) to finish up and be released, my friends have decided to give Tabula Rasa (RGTR) a chance. To be fair, it is still a fairly young game, so it has it bugs, but it is falling into a place, that for me, exists between CoX and WoW. It seems to combine a middle ground of the features from both games, an okay balance of made them both fun games to play. So while I am terrible at FPS's, I am finding RGTR to be nice resting place as we wait on WAR!

May your new year be filled with fun and fancy with doses of reality thrown in for good measure.
