Bilbo's companions...

Dwalin, Balin, Oin, Gloin, Ori, Dori, Nori, Kili, Fili, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Thorin and others.

They all come for around 45 points. Some of the mightier dwarves can cost 65 points and I can't remember exactly what Thorin cost, but maybe 120? Or 90 points?
     This leads me to another subject - on the company known as Games Workshop. I rarely use their name here, and even more seldomly do I criticise the company that makes these fine Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit models. I can even appreciate the elegant rules system of the Strategy Battle Game - their skirmish system which works so smoothly. HOWEVER, I do have some critique that I can't stop myself from venting. A minor article on this matter will follow. Remind me should I forget.

Other things - private life stuff
I called in sick to a work-interview today. Rarely do I get replies from the different companies that I apply for work at, and even less often do I get the chance to come to an interview. But it finally happened. "Work with people" is the theme for the work, not my cup of tea, not at all. However, it seems like a less stressful work than the one I have now, so I applied and got a date for an interview. 
      So, the time for the interview came today. The weather was just awful... cold and snow and idiots everywhere. So I called the company and said I couldn't come because"... ehm, not feeling too well... ehm... ". An obvious lie: They must have thought "here's a lazy lier, goodbye... "
    What happens next? I get an e-mail from another woman at the company saying: Please contact us and tell us when you would like to come to an interview. They want a total nitwit wargaming hobbyist with a flair for violence and hate for most people he deems "unintegligent" to book his own job-interview!?
     Finally, I've cracked the code - it was the same as when interacting with females! Never be too eager! And make obvious lies - this is appearantly a sign of healthy social skills and makes you look mysterious and interesting. And be as lazy as you want, also a sign of a healthy outlook on life: Let someone else do your things for you!
     I will not take this job as I do not want to work at a company that potentially hires idiots like that.

Ending - spelling bee!
"Dwarves" are spelled dwarves and not dwarwes. Search for "dwarwes" and you get 266K hits on google, search for "dwarves" and you get 13 000K hits. So, from now on, please help me spelling this right and give a bash with the good ol' hammer of discipline

Oh, hi Mark, don't forget to read the: Don't be an Anorak! A much needed reminder for all us gamers out there. I think I'll add it on the sidebar... it's that important.
