A Very Special Announcement
« on: April 05, 2007, 08:03:28 pm »


A very merry Easter-een-mass to ye all!


I don't know if you're familiar with the tradition of Winter-een-mass, but if you're not, here's how it started:



The idea of Winter-een-mass, apart from catering to Ethan's every need, is to take some time and play a few video games. A few? Play till your eyes bleed, suckers, because the king of Winter-een-mass demands it!

Right, the only problem is, Winter-een-mass is celebrated in January - just one occasion for reckless playing and complete social suicide is not enough. So, I've decided to add a new holiday in Ethan's steps - Ester-een-mass! Since we gamers and them thar Christians have always been on good terms, mostly because of the myriad of free days their reign hath given us, we've decided (well, I've decided) to incorporated our newest holiday into this, the merriest of times.

So, if you've got a video game hidden away somewhere, dig it up, install it, and play the hell out of it. Minesweeper will do, I guess, but only if you want to go to Gamer's Hell. No, it's not a nice place. No broadband.


I've posted this around and I think NTSMS is also a good place to spread the love. C'mon, be merry!


Merry Easter-een-mass!

Hey folks,

Livi, something tells me that Nighthawk will een-mass anything that's not up a tree at the count of three. How fast can Pesah climb?

Hawk, how can you scare me with gamer's hell if I haven't got broadband even now?

Cheers!

Umm... Markus, how could Pesah climb a tree?  :unsure:

I know what Pesah is, Livi. :) I was speaking metaphorically...

Physically you could put some matzo up there, thus making some birds very happy. But what I meant to say is that Nighthawk seems willing enough to een-mass any holiday.

Cheers!

Well... we could do that too... but I was under the impression that gaming wasn't really a prerogative during Pesah. It's more like a, y'know, spiritual thing.


Winter-een-mass and its offspring, Easter-een-mass, are much the same. They're really spiritual. Like, that time, when I was playing Prey, my cool Indian dude could spiritwalk out of his own body and do stuff. That was kinda spiritual.

...

But yeah, we could Pesah, too.

Hawk, how can you scare me with gamer's hell if I haven't got broadband even now?
Hah! You're obviously a heretic, Marcus. How else could you be broadbandless?


...


You're on dial-up? Ye gods man, what have you done to deserve such a fate?

You can bet yer touchpad, I am. For now, we'll stick with Winter-een-mass and Easter-een-mass. Maybe even Hawk-een-mass.


Winter-een-mass is an actual gaming holiday. Well, it's not, really, but after reading Ctrl+Alt+Del [http://www.cad-comic.com/comic.php?d=20021023], I couldn't help myself and just had to praise the genius of such an idea. Since I was too late for Winter-een-mass, I added Easter-een-mass to compensate. Plus, it was a good excuse for me to celebrate something - since Croatia is a Christian stronghold of love and understanding *giggles in a manly fashion*, these days I'm forced to adhere to wanton Easter-worshiping. Fine, said I. I too shall celebrate Easter... en masse! Then, after I recovered from that horrible pun, I took the liberty of skipping my studies, going home and spending some quality time with my girlfriend. And I blame it all on Easter-een-mass.



...


Did I say spending some quality time with my girlfriend? What I meant was, playing games until my eyes bleed.

And they're not bleedin' yet.

New celebration taken in by me!
Tomorrow I shall continue celebrating, I did celebrate a little, but as far as I can see, my eyes are not bleeding yet.

I know, Markus... and still, Pesah could climb a sand dune in the worst case  :biggrin:
