Here’s a shout out to an updated blog and address for Wendi Strang Frost’s personal blog. I don’t know when she made the switchover, or if I knew it and forgot, but go visit Pears in my Pockets.
Everyone I know is more talented than me, in different ways. Wendi in a pen-and-ink artistic fashion.

Until he, in a recent blog entry showed this picture from a movie he is certain is “Mask of Fu Manchu”
Now I want to see this movie.
Ginger’s latest WISH is about bitching… What�s your take on player bitching/venting: complaints intended to relieve player stress and not to actually change things in the game? When and where and to whom is it appropriate? How should players and GMs handle it?
