Questions without answers….yet

“Over the mountain take me across the sky
Something in my vision, something deep inside
Where did I wander, where d’ya think I wandered to
I’ve seen life’s magic astral plane I travel through.”

I don’t really have anything stunning to comment on tonight, so instead of giving you a boring recap of truly, mind-numbingly boring day, I’ll …..I guess I’ll just ask some questions that have been on my mind lately. I warn you know, this is going to be boring, but it’s the best I can come up with tonight.
I posted last week a question about the responsibilities of of people participating in the SCA, and I’ve since asked that question to a couple of people that I respect in face to face conversations. Those conversations led to other questions, and without describing all the twists and turns of those particular conversational paths I’ll just state that for the last couple of days I’ve been pondering the difference, if any, between the words “promise”, “vow”, and “oath”. According to (allow me to say again, I love the internet), all three could arguably be used interchangably. So, why are “oaths” and “vows” given so much more…weight?
The next question is completely and totally not related to the previous questions. After many years of avoiding on-line role playing games, I am seriously thinking of starting to play either World OF Warcraft , Eve On-line, or City of Villians. Now, it has been three years or more since I last played Everquest, and I have no real knowledge of the games listed, so I would be interested in hearing any recomendations. One of the things I loved about Everquest was the whole “trade skill” routine, where your character could gain skills in making armor, weapons, etc. etc. I’m not necessarily looking for a first person shooter type game. So, any and all recomendations please.
I’ll pass on most of the political questions I have slogging through my brain, but I just have to ask if there is any city, anywhere in the country that is more corrupt at the metro level than Memphis? There was just another sting last week and a bunch of local politicians were arrested for influence peddling. I know it was at the State level, but at least Huey Long and his cronies were at least entertaining when they were in power in Lousianna, but the Memphis politicians wouldn’t know how to be entertaining if there lives depended on it.
Last and final question for the evening? Who else is going to Christmas Revel this weekend?

That’s all for tonight,
