Oh god….. This is the best Batman picture ever! I love my kid haha
So this post is about a week late…. I’m sorry… This had been a LONG weekend/week. More good an bad, that a plus! Did start a new relationship!! A quite nerdy thing, not my usual. But nice(Dr. Horrible anyone? Anyone?) No I’m joking tho, she is great in many ways. It’s nice to have a gamer/bookworm/comic-con happy girlfriend! But I’m going off topic here. Sorry HAHA!
We had a fun little Table Top night. I did break my “Wil Wheaton losing steak” with 7 Wonders!! I didn’t build any of the 3 Wonders, instead I just build up my army and won with 62 points! BUT…. Things changed rather quickly HAHA, I kept coming 2nd or 3rd place after that. Well we did win at Pandemic… But I felt that we won to easily. Rather bitter sweet.. But anywho, here are some pictures for eye candy.
“WHAT WAS THAT?” You were sitting comfortably on your sofareading the latest issue of FATE in the dim light when movement across the room caught your attention. It seemed dark and shadowy, but there was nothing there. You returned to your reading – and a moment later there it was again. You looked up quickly this time and saw the fleeting but distinctly human shape of the shadow pass quickly over the far wall… and disappear.
What was that? Some natural shadow? Your heightened imagination? A ghost? Or was it something that seems to be a spreading phenomenon – apparitions that are coming to be known as “shadow people” or “shadow beings.” Perhaps this is an old phenomenon with a new name that is now being discussed more openly, in part thanks to the Internet. Or maybe it’s a phenomenon that, for some reason, is manifesting with greater frequency and intensity now.
Those who are experiencing and studying the shadow people phenomenon say that these entities almost always used to be seen out of the corner of the eye and very briefly. But more and more, people are beginning to see them straight on and for longer periods of time. Some experiencers testify that they have even seen eyes, usually red, on these shadow beings.
The mysterious sightings have become a hot topic of conversion in paranormal chat rooms, message boards and websites, and it is given widespread attention on paranormal talk radio.
What are shadow people and where do they come from? Several theories have been offered.
The explanation we get from skeptics and mainstream science – and who are usually people who have never experienced the shadow people phenomenon – is that it is nothing more than the active human imagination. It’s our minds playing tricks on us… our eyes seeing things in a fraction of a second that aren’t really there – illusions… real shadows caused by passing auto headlights, or some similar explanation. And without a doubt, these explanations probably can account for some if not many experiences. The human eye and mind are easily fooled. But can they account for all cases?
To call these entities ghosts demands first a definition of what we mean by ghosts. (See the article: Ghosts: What Are They?) But by almost any definition, shadow people are somewhat different than ghost phenomena. Whereas ghost apparitions are almost always a misty white, vaporish or have a decidedly human form and appearance (very often with discernable “clothing”), shadow beings are much darker and more shadow-like. In general, although the shadow people often do have a human outline or shape, because they are dark, the details of their appearance is lacking. This is in contrast to many ghost sightings in which the witness can describe the ghost’s facial features, style of clothing and other details. The one detail most often noted in some shadow being sightings are their glowing red eyes.
DEMONS OR OTHER SPIRIT ENTITIES
The dark countenance and malevolent feelings that are often reported in association with these creatures has led some researchers to speculate that they may be demonic in nature. If they are demons, we have to wonder what their purpose or intent is in letting themselves be seen in this manner. Is it merely to frighten?
NOW LEMME EXPLAIN TO YOU A THING I READ.
From Carlos Castaneta books.
In there, there is something eerily similar to this. They are called mud shadows. ((This book is non fiction, based on real experiances he had under the teachings of a Yaqui Indian by the way)) They are what you see out of the corner of your eye when it’s dark. To see them better, you have to train your eyes to look at the dark first. Not the light. Try a leaf. Most people’s eyes are automatically drawn to the side that’s lit up, or brighter. Try to focus on the dark part. Then, when it’s dark, just stare into nothing but watch for these shadows. Soon, you’ll see them more and more until you’ll wonder how you could NOT have seen them. They are everywhere. They take different shapes, but Carlos described them as giant fish in his book. They feed off the human mind. Why is it that people are so concerned with starving, when most have never experienced it? That’s because it’s not your fear. It’s the mud shadows.

Took a nice little random trip to the coast this weekend. It was great to get away from everything for a little while, beside it was nice to have a special someone with me too.
Stop off at the House of Wax, then to random little shops. Then went to Rogue brewery for good food & beer. Then went to the beach and walked around in the ice cold water. Then drove up to the Devil’s punch bowl, that was really pretty.
So after all that we get home only to fall asleep on the couch…. Yeah I know haha!

I look up — many people feel small because they’re small and the Universe is big — but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars. There’s a level of connectivity.
That’s really what you want in life, you want to feel connected, you want to feel relevant, you want to feel like a participant in the goings on of activities and events around you.
That’s precisely what we are, just by being alive…

So once I got off work I walked into the middle of 7 Wonders. But once that was over, we started the night off with Ticket to Ride.
Then we followed it up with classic round of Small World.
Then we finished the night with Castle Panic! One of my personal favorites, we had to play this twice tho. Haha the first game didn’t even last 5 minutes haha.
Even tho I didn’t win any or mostly came in second place…. I had a great time with new friends and a special someone. It was nice to have some game time and forget about my long work day.
