Cuddle them until they try to escape. :P Then cuddle them some more. :D

Ours never really got into the habit of sitting on the kitchen table or stealing people food or other things that would be considered wrong, so I wouldn't really know. :P They seem to enjoy the top of the fridge, but we usually leave them there as they can get down by themselves if they like and it doesn't really bother anyone. :P Still, as long as she doesn't mind too much, I guess it's fine. :P

It also works to tighten stomach muscles and helps relieve back pain. There are quite a few testimonials about people who didn't need it for postpartum bellies and it helped them out :)

No Haids...and there's a HUGE warning on the said "DO NOT USE IF PREGNANT" :P

Thanks, B'rrr! :)


Sorry for the generalization...  :-[ I know from my own experience that the grad school system (apply first for funding, then for a program) is similar in Ireland and France, and my biophysics adviser did her PhD work in Germany and said that it was similarly structured there.

(They told me I'd have to watch this tape and then wait seven days in order to see it, and then we'd talk about joining.) I turned them down. I'll make my own ring... with blackjack and hookas (yes, I know that's not the quote)... eh, forget the blackjack... meh, forget the whole thing...

See, Cray-Q-estie, this is the fellowship in Ireland, not Middle Earth: one I accepted, one I rejected. ::) ;P

Congrats Delling! You better still come around, though!

The BAD: I wanna make my new character in DDO! ...but I'm trying to wait so that flaky person (stabbed here (http://www.postudios.com/blog/forum/index.php?topic=8894.msg288295#msg288295)) can join my
group of friends in game.

Why do I associate with flaky people and people who lack drive, ambition, and purpose since leaving high school?? Oh, right, either (A) they didn't act that way initially or (B) I met them before they were robbed of purpose and ambition... *sigh* ...socializing is for the birds (and the fishes... flocks and schools... yeah)...

The BAD: since I was dealing with trip stuff, I didn't get any research stuff done today
The PLAN: since I'm not going downtown tomorrow, I may pull an all-nighter...

The MAYBE: I might do some of that beta-testing stuff in there too.. if I'm sufficiently cogent/have the patience for it...

The CONFUSING: I may be incredibly thick, but just what is the difference between nihilism and absurdism?

That's an interesting question. I never thought about it before, but the difference is mild. Absurdism is the philosophy that all humans are alone in a world that is irrational. Nihilism rather suggests one to become skeptic of their surroundings. Nihilism suggests that their is no "truth" in the world and their is no "existence". If you saw Inception, then:
Mal was suffering from nihilism before she killed herself, thinking she would wake up one more time.

Nihilism attacks the concept of reality, and Absurdism focuses more on isolation in an irrational world, but not necessarily a world that does not exist. I hoped my nonsensical babbling helped.  :P

I'm not sure the word "suffering" should be applied to schools of thought. :P And I was talking more about Nietzschean nihilism, in which there is a lack of objective purpose vs the kind of absurdism that Camus identified with. :) As with all philosophies, they are open to interpretations and have lots of different definitions. :P I'd love to continue this though. :)

Grading comp sci labs, so I have to make sure that they documented everything correctly, look at indentation and spacing and comment on that, and look at their code for any bad or inefficient logic. Could be faster probably but I like to make a lot of comments so they understand what they're doing right/wrong. And /agree with the consistency issue. :P

Nihilism rather suggests one to become skeptic of their surroundings. Nihilism suggests that their is no "truth" in the world and their is no "existence". If you saw Inception, then:
Mal was suffering from nihilism before she killed herself, thinking she would wake up one more time.

Nihilism attacks the concept of reality, and Absurdism focuses more on isolation in an irrational world, but not necessarily a world that does not exist. I hoped my nonsensical babbling helped.  :P

I'm not sure the word "suffering" should be applied to schools of thought. :P And I was talking more about Nietzschean nihilism, in which there is a lack of objective purpose vs the kind of absurdism that Camus identified with. :) As with all philosophies, they are open to interpretations and have lots of different definitions. :P I'd love to continue this though. :)



I said "suffering" to illustrate the darker points of nihilism, but clearly, through nihilism, one can question what they thought was "real" all along. For instance, Nietzsche used Christianity as an example for his definition of nihilism. I don't want to sound apathetic to those who share the beliefs in Christianity, but Nietzsche had established that religion provides people with a "purpose", once humanity reaches a point where they don't need religion, they lose that "purpose". Thus, everyone is struck with nihilism, but not necessarily in a negative way. I'm a big fan of Nietzsche, he was truly a genius.

Absurdism (which I wasn't aware of until you mentioned Camus), is similar to nihilism, as well as existentialism. Absurdism suggests that people will never find their "meaning" in life, cause no inherent meaning exists. In a sense, both philosophies are one and the same, but I'd like to think of "The Absurd" being a conclusive statement that was formed through nihilism. Nihilism is questioning truth, purpose, and meaning through our own perspectives. Nietzsche was bound by perspectivism. Camus states that there is no purpose, and Nietzsche states that we as a people must realize that there is no purpose (but also that it's a slippery slope). Once again, just the way I see it. I also see how both can be construed as the same philosophy, and for all I know, they probably are.

Grading comp sci labs, so I have to make sure that they documented everything correctly, look at indentation and spacing and comment on that, and look at their code for any bad or inefficient logic. Could be faster probably but I like to make a lot of comments so they understand what they're doing right/wrong. And /agree with the consistency issue. :P
Yeah - I was usually grading chemistry problems - I would usually start from where they went wrong and show them how to do it from there. It was especially frustrating whenI had to look at it for a few minutes just to figure out what they were doing.

It also seems like Nietzsche was aiming for a new purpose in the form of the Superman. He also mocked openly nihilist philosophers like (I think) Schopenhauer in "Thus Spoke Zarathustra". Bearing that in mind, I think he saw religion as a fallacy, nihilism as the escape from that fallacy and the Superman as the goal we should all aim for once we understand nihilism and want to live for something again (rather than submitting to an absurdist view of the universe).

I think that's why I liked Nietzsche so much as a philosopher. Although his views were against common schools of thought, he was always lenient on the peoples' behavioral aspects. While he was aware that religion was absurd, he realized that nihilism is also "Absurd". I always found his arguments to be smack dab in the middle, where he was able to find a reasonable school of thought. The Ubermensch (or Superman) was truly an enlightening piece of work. Although, it's one of the more popular pieces to be misconstrued by the masses, I still find a shred of knowledge every time I read about it. I think for humanity, there may be such a thing as the Superman, but if we become too dependent on either nihilism or religion, we're definitely going to be at a standstill for a long time.

They have specific client orders that they need to fill. But there's a lot of orders that come in, so I need to stay on top of them. They just need to make sure to prioritize their orders to appropriate due dates so as to not piss off clients. But as long as everybody gets what they need on time, nobody complains.

I have to take video tapes that are in storage and bring them somewhere to be shipped out to clients.

Why are you still using video tapes?

Uh, a good question. I was actually talking about this with a coworker. They still use Betamax and VHS, but yet they have already upgraded to Blu-ray. They actually bought a bunch of PS3s to use as Blu-ray players (which I thought was funny). It's for convenience, I suppose. I think it may just depend on the clients' needs.

At my job interview, they told me they'd be running a criminal background check on me.

I said, "Would you be willing to overlook that one little incident with the axe murdering? I was just trying it out."

And my now manager goes, "Well as long as you can still operate a register."

Best. Interview. Ever.

As long as they keep me away from sharp objects, I should be fine.  :P

Actually, it was kind of funny. They were supposed to contact my previous employer, but my previous employer went bankrupt (Hollywood Video). So since Hollywood Video went out of business, there wasn't an actual "employer" to call to confirm my employment history. I ended up digging up my old job at Staples and am now using them. But that small part was the only thing preventing me from getting my job.  ::)

GOOD: I might be reassigned to a higher position before my job even starts.  ;D

The GOOD: I was just "you're welcome"-ed in Irish (Ta failte romhat!) This makes me manically happy! :D (that or it could be the fatigue and sudden in flux of good things)

The BAD: PPS No. takes 7-10 days anyway
The BAD: the balance of bureaucracy to research is tilted far too heavily towards the bureaucracy at the moment...
The BAD: but then the research somewhat scares me... *should go read up on the 3-dimensional shah function (it will be handy (I think) for seeding clouds with random clumps)*

I just looked up Accusative - I had always assumed that the subjective case in English was equivalent to nominative and that the objective case was equivalent to accusative. Apparently, the objective case is actually a combination of accusative and dative.

Well, they were talking in the video. :P In a very odd dialect with an accusative. XD Something my dialect does not have (we just have the nominative and the dative and we use a dative possessive instead of the genitive and use the nominative articles where the accusative should be. We also don't distinguish between "gold" and "golden" in this dialect). :P

The BAD: I haven't played with the vis. center yet :o (I've been busy with research :( )
The BAD: I have the rather boring IMO task of just driving the vis. center and making sure the guests don't blow anything up (which would be really hard for them to manage considering)... ... ...oh, and answering their questions (I should clarify that answering their questions is boring because 1) said questions are generally directed to whichever of us is doing the talking and 2) they are also rather limited in number)

The BAD: no TKD tonight b/c of bank holiday
The GOOD: bank holiday today :D
The GOOD: that means a day-off
The BAD: that's not as great as it might sound
The BAD: boredom

The BAD: not getting up in a timely fashion... ever...
The BAD: it's too cold in my room for such things ::)
The BAD: also, it's too noisy outside for same

The GOOD: my parents will eventually send that stuff they said they'd send and then I'll have an electric blanket

The BAD: I think that breakfast sandwich disagrees with my stomach rather fiercely... ... *feels ill*

The BAD: Too much to do this week. :bomb:
The GOOD: I have Thursday and Friday off this week! !!!
The BAD: That means I have to finish everything by Wednesday or else work during my vacation. :wall:

The FRUSTRATING: They just extended the deadline (previously 8 AM this Thursday) by two weeks - not to give us more time for what we already have to do but to give us more. >:(

Open nights are nights the astrophysics part of the department does tours of the observatory and our visualization center (a 3D visualization suite hooked up to a super-computer).

The BAD: And my love life is completely and sadly empty, which wouldn't normally be a problem for me but isn't that supposed to be what goes good when your professional life isn't?
The BAD: Bathroom sink is clogged. And full of.... worms of some kind, I think? They look like mini-leeches SUPER gross.

THE GOOD: I'm off work at noon today and all of tomorrow, because one of my best friends from college is coming into town this weekend and I haven't seen in her 2.5 years, and it's Halloween weekend, and we're having a party on Saturday, and I'm super-psyched for all of these things!!! :pumpkin:

I was merely pointing out that it was not yet time to take sides. :scholar: First, you set up the position, then you simplify, then if you win the simplification, you trounce your opponent soundly taking all of his pieces, queening all of your remaining pawns (there's always a few that have to be sacrificed... for the greater good, dontcha know), and finally checkmating his king. :evil: ... I mean... uhm... well, yes, THAT, but I meant to make it sound less malevolent and more matter of fact...

The GOOD: Birighina is purring. :)
d'aww... BIRI!

The GOOD: remember that IDL code? Yeah, what IDL code. I don't have to handle that for a while yet it seems.
The BAD: the thing I do have to handle rather immediately is rather problematic (the HCN intensity is less than the HCO+ intensity in the computer model not to mention that the HCN profile is shaped wrong  :-\, but on the plus side, the HCO+ profile is right and works and no one had to get nailed to anything! :D)
The BAD: if I had that IDL thing working, I could SHOW you and that would all make sense b/c pictures really are worth a thousand words sometimes

The BAD: except when they are in 2nd years' lab manuals :P

The BAD: I think I'm about to be sick... oh well... that was the last of the Jaffa Cakes so if it's them, it should be over now

THE ANNOYING: Mom and sister are watching Oprah and she's camping.  Woo freaking hoo.  Who gives a rip about what she does while camping?  WHO, I ask?  Who?!

THE GOOD: Sea-Tac set a record today--73 degrees outside in November! Long live the sunshine! :D

THE GOOD: Oprah is almost over :sweating:

THE BAD: Why does nobody want to play Judge Brack?! He's integral to the play!!!
Siiiiiiiiiiiiiggggggggghhhhhhhhh...okay, okay, Kiwi...

I'll play Judge Brack.  What are my lines?  ;)
Darling, how could you invite her to Cambridge before me? :'(
Point of order: he hasn't actually invited her yet. :P
You should be taking my side. :P
I was merely pointing out that it was not yet time to take sides. :scholar: First, you set up the position, then you simplify, then if you win the simplification, you trounce your opponent soundly taking all of his pieces, queening all of your remaining pawns (there's always a few that have to be sacrificed... for the greater good, dontcha know), and finally checkmating his king. :evil: ... I mean... uhm... well, yes, THAT, but I meant to make it sound less malevolent and more matter of fact...
When it is time to take sides, take mine! :P

The GOOD: Missing art class in favour of attending a 3-hour lecture given by a holocaust survivor.
The ANNOYING: Bio hw that I'm doing in lieu of having lunch. :P
The BAD: Delling is not online. :(
The GOOD: Darthkiwi's play is shaping up. :D He's playing Judge Brack and he hasn't invited Haids over before me. :D
The BAD: This also means he'll barely be around for another week. :(
The GOOD: This week is what is probably my least stressful week until Christmas
The BAD: I have yet to finish Camus. I don't want to read Camus. XD I have more important things to do with my time. Have me read Sartre instead. Sartre is interesting. Camus is absurd.
The BAD: IDIOTS!! After the lecture one of the idiots asked why German Jews had left for Palestine and the US instead of Israel. It made me want to stab something. ;P

Duly noted.

But I am NOW! ...and I'm bored!

The GOOD: I get to listen to second years "making so many cups of tea" (stirring their beakers for this thermo lab)
The BAD: I get to listen to second years "making so many cups of tea"

The BAD: for some reason, the JPL database pages that I actually need seem to be down  :-\ (only the two or three I need mind you ::))
The BAD: when I tried to add the one molecule I've already done to MOLLIE, it blew up and refused to compile (the weird thing was that it seemed to get down to making the model before dying)
The GOOD: I got it working again by getting a copy of the original files
The BAD: I forgot to save a copy of the HCN model I was working on (fortunately, it's not so different from the HCOplus model that I've already got sort of working; unfortunately, this also results in something that doesn't look a thing like the observations  :-\)

THE GOOD: We have costumes and set and it's all going to be fantastic!
THE BAD: People really need to work on their lines :-[

XP I stayed home last Friday because I had the flu and in the meantime, my speech for German that I've not started writing yet was moved up to this week, I have five other exams (some of which were moved up to this week too) and I have Greek presentations.
The GOOD?: I don't have to eat or sleep. They're both overrated.

THE GOOD: We had our first performance of the play tonight! :D
THE BAD: It was a bit... problematic. There were lighting problems and line problems and plot problems and... well, it could have been better.
THE GOOD: We have two other performances to go so we can do it better next time!
THE GOOD: I'm studying Poe this week! :D I like Poe.

The GOOD: I think I can get MOLLIE running with the new molecules now :)


The BAD: my great aunt is in the hospital and it has been said she likely won't be leaving :(

The BAD: my grandmother and said great aunt are really, really close--to give you an idea how close, they were generally paired together in early childhood (b/c out of all of their siblings they were closest in age), they went to high school together, shared an apartment, got married (separate ceremonies, different times :P), moved into the same neighborhood, and the longest time they were apart before my aunt's children decided to move her, their father, and their brother out to a smaller little development which was meant to be safer but is a completely different story--the longest and farthest apart they have been was a period of some months and a couple blocks when my grandparents moved to a bigger house!

The BAD: so it stands to reason that my grandmother will not take this well :'( :(

The WORSE: I'm a quarter of the world away and more or less dependent on my parents for getting home in the event something happens :( ::) (my parents are kind of fail at the "doing things that involve a) reliability or b) spending of their own money")

The GOOD: pie! ! !
(http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash2/hs575.ash2/149749_712025553049_12815110_38946118_3524994_n.jpg)
The BAD: pie is gone now :(
The POSSIBLY GOOD: I will make more pie and improve on the technique :P

The WANT: I haven't made biscuits in a while... it's odd... I'm not good at it yet, and yet I get cravings for tasteh biscuits. :P
The WANT: (as in lack) shortening for same :-\

THE BAD: Just got my supervision report for this term's essay work. It had words like "satisfactory" and "adequate" in it which, of course, makes me feel horribly unsatisfactory and inadequate :( and, in turn, makes me question why I'm here at all, if all I can get is "satisfactory" reports.

:( ooh... I know how that feels :-/ :( Bear in mind: the level at which you're working ("satisfactory" work in undergrad at Cambridge is different from "satisfactory" undergrad work at some podunk state school*... yes, I just used the "word" "podunk"... stop staring at me!), other forms of assessment for instance the assessment of the individual essays, and your supervisor's reputation (is he known as a particularly tough grader, fair grader? students are the place to look for this sort of thing; other professors, etc. are not likely to share their real opinion with a student they don't know personally if for no other reason than professionalism).



*erm... your mileage will vary: in the US there's basically a hierarchy to schools: community colleges (1-2 yr. institutions), state schools (such as Georgia State University, etc.), and more specialized schools--i.e. a college that is actually known for something (engineering schools, liberal arts colleges, etc.) I would imagine Cambridge would be in the upper end of that third tier.

Now that we have evolved to online multiplayer, nobody plays "party games" anymore (aside from games like Rock Band). Everybody sits on their couch and is connected via their headset. I miss the ole' days.  :(

What more need be said? :'(

THE GOOD: I just wrote an awesome essay on Hro­gar's "Thank you" speech in Beowulf (lines 928-956). Basically, I argue that, while he's ostensibly thanking Beowulf and being very flattering and grateful, there are also a number of ways in which he covers his back and says "Hey, just because this hero could kill that monster doesn't mean I could have done it! It was God's will! I can't control a thing like that! I'm still a good king, right?"

THE BAD: I now have to start work on *another* essay, which must, by definition, be awesome, because it will count towards my final grade for this year :-\

THE GOOD: But later today I'm reading one of my poems out to an audience :D which will be fantastic.
THE GOOD: And then even later today I'm in a sketch show which will be hilarious! :D

Well, it is. :P But whenever I try transplanting it into another computer, it tells me (rather rudely) that since the hardware now is no longer original, it must be a counterfeit copy of Windows and is going to keep me from accessing anything other than the hard drive. It won't recognise the USB port, it won't connect to the network and it won't even recognise the CD drive. :P I can view my things; I just can't do anything with them. XP

When you transplant it, do you boot to it? Put in a new computer but boot to that computer's hard drive; then in theory, you should at least be able to copy them from one hard drive to the other (and then from the other be able to do whatever you want with it :D). Alternatively, if you were to delete the Windows install files, I would think any computer to which you presented the hard drive to consider it an external hard drive.

The thought occurs (if the above is still locked out by Windows insanity) that what you really need is a Linux box because it won't care about such nonsense. :P

In any case, keep the hard drive safe. Then you won't have lost everything: if nothing else, you can always point and say, "No, I know right where it is." :P

When Delling was talking about a Linux box, I think he means a Linux virtual machine? Which is basically where you get a program that simulates another operating system within your current operating system. So it's like having one computer inside another. If you ran a Linux box, your laptop would behave as though it were running on Linux rather than windows and you would therefore be able to overcome all the silly "This must be pirated!!!" problems you're currently having.

It's the scene where Harry drinks the SkeleGro potion in the Hospital Wing in CoS. Someone could be telling him Hermoine and Ron kissed (or even dirtier, take that for what you will) so Harry is so shocked he spits out the potion.

The bad: The mountain of reading I have for one of my exams
The good: Break starts on Wednesday morning

Ohhh, got it. I was thinking perhaps it was a reference to how things turn out for Ron and Hermione at the end of the series.

Trust me, I know! We were going to meet up for supper at his favorite fast food, Chipotle, but when I got on the road and called him, he said for me to go home and that he wanted to pick up Salsarita's.

He got home at 7...we ate...and now I'm going to crawl into bed and read for a few minutes before I fall asleep!

What happened to your eye, Enchantermon? :(
Apparently, I have an abrasion (scratch) on my cornea. Don't really know why, since it's not like I rub my eyes a lot. My theory is that either I rub my eyes a lot in my sleep (which is possible, because I move around in my sleep a lot, or I'm showing signs of dry eyes like my mom; her eyes get so dry when she sleeps that her eyelids started tearing her corneas when she'd open her eyes in the morning. I really hope the latter isn't happening to me, because the stuff she has to put in her eyes to avoid that is nasty, goopy stuff. However:

THE GOOD: The cornea is one of the parts of the entire human body that is the fastest at healing, so the doc gave me a protective contact lens and some eye drops, and by tomorrow afternoon when I go back to see him, he expects it will be healed. So yay! The contact is a little irritating, but nowhere near as bad as my eyelids hitting the abrasion.

THE EXTRA GOOD: The lens takes the place of the older treatment, which was taping the eye shut with a huge patch of gauze. Not a good look. The contact is much better; you can't even tell I'm wearing it by looking. :)
Title: Re: The GOOD & BAD THREAD (VI)
Post by: snabbott on January 31, 2011, 02:57:13 PM
Ouch! I'm glad the contact helps. Hopefully it will be all better soon!

THE GOOD: My abrasion has shunk considerably and it doesn't hurt anymore.

The BAD: Today is one of those "Please kill me with a stick!!! Or give me drugs!! OR ANYTHING!!" types of days. :( *stabs her body*
The BAD: Stupid kidneys want a break from opiates. :(
The BAD: WHO GAVE GREEK PERMISSION NOT TO MAKE SENSE?!
The GOOD: History? I guess? At least it makes sense. XP And it's a good distraction.
The BETTER: FUDGE!! :D Fudge is my comfort food. :P
The GOOD: I have a cat. :) It could be worse. :P I could have no cat.

The BAD: Why, MOLLIE!? Why? Why do you make lines that I can't see in IDL? What is this... I don't even...
The GOOD: if I can ever get it to output something I can SEE, I can declare myself done with my French collaboration for the time being (perhaps until such time as their code includes molecular chemistries).

The GOOD/BAD: newfound addiction to soft lyrical folksy songs by rock bands, etc.

The INTERESTING: debating getting involved in these "grinds" things (basically, they pay postgrads to tutor undergrads in things said postgrads know... I will tutor in ALL OF THE LANGUAGES! ...and math and physics. :P (you mean you'll pay me to keep up with my languages and teach them to others... where precisely do I sign?))

The UNFORTUNATE: don't really have time for it at the moment... guess I'll do it in the fall or something  :-\

The GOOD: listening to songs from my new addiction


The BAD: Today is one of those "Please kill me with a stick!!! Or give me drugs!! OR ANYTHING!!" types of days. :( *stabs her body*
A stick? No, this will never do. *gives the royal executioner a very sharp sword (axes though better at getting the job done in one swing seem somewhat more base and common and thus less dignified)* Remember the lesson of Anne Boleyn: a lady washes her neck before these things (and that if she'd watched her neck a little more closely beforehand, she might not have been invited to one as the guest of honor in the first place... or was that Catherine Howard? It is so hard to keep these things straight... yes, yes, divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived, that much I do recall).

The BAD: WHO GAVE GREEK PERMISSION NOT TO MAKE SENSE?!
The GOOD: History?
Question asked, question answered. ;P

EDIT: my post doubled up somehow ???

She got a swordsman because she considered it to be more dignified and it was the way the French did it. And axes are too base for queens.

It was an hour late to the station where we got on to begin with, we sat for over an hour when we hit the car, and yeah there was damage to engine car so when we got to the next station we waited for another hour for them to switch out engines. Not sure where the rest of the delay came from but we were scheduled to get here at 1:30 am and didn't get here till 7:30 am.

THE GOOD?: I'm donating blood on Saturday

THE BAD: I have to load up on protein in order to do so, but I'm sort of a vegetarian (no red meat), so it's kinda hard for me to do that.  Turkey will have to do, I guess. :-\

THE EXCITING: Tattoo number six tomorrow!  Woot!

Nice. Judging by your numerous voluntary blood drawings and tattoos, it seems you have a high tolerance for needles. I avoid them whenever possible.

I always tell people: a tattoo needle doesn't really look like a needle.  It reminds me of a cell phone car charger. :) Here's a pic:

As for the blood donations...yeah, I guess I have developed a high needle tolerence.  Interesting, since I used to be such a wuss. ;D  But they always say that it can save three lives with every blood donation, so it's worth it. :yes:

I have to get my blood drawn for health problems a lot. I get it drawn from my hand since I have no visible veins in my arm. People look at me like I'm mental but it really doesn't hurt that bad.

The good: I get to see a friend I haven't seen in three months tomorrow.

Yeah, but the more you think about it the creepier it is.  I've learned to ignore the fact that I'm being jabbed by a needle a million times a second and just ride through it.  The fact that it doesn't look like a syringe/sewing needle makes it easier to endure.  Plus I have my ancient Care Bear that I bring with me everytime I go, he helps. ;)

I actually referenced that wikipedia article for the gender. The only problem is that I looked up True Heart bear instead of Tenderheart. :-\

Apparently, there's a transgender Care Bear. :o
Funshine Bear loves to play and tell jokes all the time, but sometimes forgets that there are times in life you must be serious. Funshine was originally a female Care Bear until 2002. He has sunshine yellow fur with a smiling sun on his tummy.

I'm glad you came around. You were quite unimpressed at first!

It was really cool to see Kevin Flynn and Alan in Legacy, and then see their younger selves in the original. If you watch Legacy carefully, you'll notice that there is a CGI un-aged version of Alan as Tron in one of Kevin's flashbacks (in addition to the CGI un-aged CLU).

Maybe you'll come around to The Matrix too. :P

Gosh, me too!  Now I'm annoyingly into it--I seriously talk about it all the time.  My coworkers are probably like, "Is she on this again?!  SHUT UP!" ::) I just wish that I had known about and had watched the original movie when I was younger, so that I would have the same appreciation for it that I have now!  I so would have been one of those nerds in the 80s that saw it in theatres fifteen times. :)

Whoa, what?!  I really need to pop this DVD in.  The way they made Jeff Bridges younger in Legacy was amazing.  I watched clips on youtube that showed the camera-helmet he wore, and how they digitally re-created his face.  Incredible.

Don't feel too bad about not being invited to the wedding. Two of my friends got married a year ago and I was one of only two school friends he invited - and I was the best man! XD

The problem with inviting people you semi-know is that, even if you'd like them to come, inviting them means inviting more people who are at the same friendship level, and the numbers quickly increase past the point of feasibility. After all, they must semi-know quite a lot of people, so they'd have to invite all of them.

Yep, that is true. It would have increased the guest list even more. If I invite acquaintance x, then I'll have to invite acquaintance y and z also. You got to think realistically how big a wedding you can afford. I think the thing that really stung me was it was right here in town and I could have gone if I was invited. *sigh* Oh well. I'll get over it.

Believe me, you'll probably be glad you weren't invited!  I was recently IN a wedding of a girl I "semi-know," and by the time I was said and done I was feeling preeeeeeeeeeetty suicidal.  When you don't really know someone and you're involved in such a huge event for them, you start to realize why you're not BFF's with them.  It's all for the best, really and truly.

Yes! Yes! :yes: That's exactly what I kept telling myself--in the future, when it's one of my best friends or when my sister gets married, I will be totally fine with it.  I'm glad we understand each other, Deloria. ;)

Thank you Doon! Unfortunately, It's only gotten worse.

The bad: Have been turned down for every internship I've applied for. It's the only thing stopping me from graduating from college after classes are over. I've been trying to keep myself from crying all day. Graduation seems so much farther away now.

Post by: writerlove on April 20, 2011, 09:12:33 PM
My major is print journalism, so a newspaper, magazine or something like that. It's required for all journalism students I think. We're supposed to have 300 hours which is a whole summer or semester's worth of work. Also we have a grad portfolio to submit which includes internship stuff, so I can't submit that until I get my internship. I wanted to graduate in December but now i'm not so sure. Maybe if I find something for the fall.

Rejection sucks. Believe me, I know. Sometimes you just have to keep applying (over and over and over again...) before you find something. Try not to take it personally thought I know it's hard not to. They probably get lots of applications from very qualified candidates - they can't take all of them. Hang in there. :hug:

The good: Feeling pretty impressed with myself. Building a four section newspaper project from scratch in a week isn't easy. I completed 14 out of 16 I originally planned. But I don't think I'll be able to produce the two pages left to my expectations. Luckily it's in the same section so that section will be two pages instead of four.

If it makes you feel any better, it's not just you. There's been a trend of people taking longer to move out on their own and such. I didn't live on my own until graduate school (age 27), and I didn't get married until age 33. (And that was only thanks to eHarmony :))

The GOOD (because there is actually some): I think I am more or less done with the reading for my literature review.

The BAD: I have to write a 6 page progress report on my research to date... tables and figures expected (so that should cut down on it somewhat)
The BAD: I have to write a 10 page literature review on my field of study
The BAD: It's all due in 1.5wks.
The BAD: LaTeX. (I think the idea of figuring out how to use LaTeX is more or less what is robbing me of my motivation at the moment... honestly, why do I need to COMPILE a text document? Who thought this was a good idea?)

The GOOD: Those seem to be the maximum number of pages so as long as I come close to that, I should  be okay.

The BAD: keeping my College of Sciences Fellowship seems to be attached to doing well in this
The GOOD?: I've been told by more senior postgrads that 1) obviously your supervisor isn't going to come down against you on this and 2) the other person reading the reports is reading reports from THE WHOLE department so he's likely to just rubber stamp them all.

The BAD: my computer just hit the 12% battery life mark and I left the adapter (US to British) at home.

THAT'S ME!! ALL THE GORRAMN TIME NOW! Then, add in the inability to get out of bed in the morning and lack of motivation and focus to work on my nearly 20 page research progress report due at the end of the month... at this point, I have expended more energy talking and thinking about it than actually WRITING IT!! >:( @self

The GOOD: I got the two pages of responses to questions out of the way last night.
The BAD: I still need: a 1 page plan of research for the next year (should be done by the end of the day if I would just get up, go into the office, and meet with my professor), a 6 page report on my progress from the first year (should be started by the end of the day), and a 10 page literature review (should be started immediately after that other thing gets done which hopefully would be by this weekend). ::)

THE UGH: I've sneezed an average of about three times per hour for the past five hours. GAH!

The BAD: My leg was injured at clubs' day last Wednesday...
The GOOD: it no longer hurts to walk on
The BAD: sometimes I'll turn it or step backwards on it and I can't be certain what posture/balance is the issue but I get this "lovely" shock of PAIN running from my shin up to my hip where it then screams at my brain.
The BAD: regardless of how I ACCIDENTALLY set off the pain, what I DO know is that I can set off the pain by doing a negativa on my right leg  :( (It's fairly excruciating...)

The BAD: my capoeira instructor is really zealous so I'm sure he'll be annoyed that I didn't come last Thursday and am considering skipping until it's feeling better
The WORSE: This happens right after I've paid 50euro for classes this month :-X (See, the arrangement is you pay by month either for 4 or 6 classes. If you don't make it to classes that month then you're out the money (because it goes for things like renting the space, etc.)... you can see the problem here :( )
The STILL WORSE: Next Wednesday is this big mixed martial arts fight night thing... I'm not comfortable sparring generally and was considering doing all this independent practice to get ready... which I can't do now because I'm injured. :-\

The GOOD: I finally cleaned out my car.

The completely, horribly, undoubtedly, very, very BAD: Those were all noteworthy because I decided to ram my Ford Focus into the back of a semi this morning, likely totaling the car and leaving me with a few scrapes/bruises, a ticket, a heightened insurance rate, a weekly car rental bill and the impending necessity of buying a car.

And I thought Mondays sucked. :P

Man, I wish. I could totally rock that exam. :P

(My computer organization class, for whoever might be wondering, is actually about the low-level architecture of computers, digital logic in chips and stuff and how assembly code interacts with memory, registers, cache, etc. It's a fun, but hard class. :P)

I'm in a similar class... though we don't touch on assembly: the course deals with hardware architectures and the usage of parallel processing code in the context of supercomputers or large computer clusters. :P

The class we had similar to that was my 2nd favorite class in college. We had a "binary bomb" project where we were given the assembly code for a program and had to figure out the right inputs. If you guessed wrong it blew up and you lost points. I think I annoyed my partner because I kept figuring out the next part without him because I was having so much fun with it XD

Course now I've forgotten it all and I'm having to relearn it for my Compilers class :P

How much was tuition a year there Tess if you don't mind me asking? I went to a state university in my home state. It's been a pretty good education though. To me it shouldn't matter where you learned stuff, it's how much of it have you retained and can apply it in whatever field you are in.

I'm sorry you are losing your job Gilgamesh. Hopefully you can find a new one soon!

The bittersweet: cleaning out my desk

When I first went there (2006) it was about 21,000 I think? It was a little less for me due to being in-state and scholarships. It's gone way up in price though since then, 37,000 with tuition and room & board combined. My sister's a sophomore there this year and she's transferring to a state school next year due to the cost.

THE ANNOYING: Snow.  Oh, the snow.  Everywhere.  And really, it's not just the snow that has me frustrated, it's the blasted ICE everywhere  Seriously, I haven't left the house in five days!  The one day I tried driving, I almost peed my pants and turned right back around and went home.  Cabin fever is settling in BIG time and I'm soooooooooooo bored.  I feel like I need a Captain's Log:

Day 5
Supplies are scarce here in the Dundas household and we have resorted to opening the remaining English muffins and Frosted Flakes in the pantry.  Butter is a luxury in these parts, so rationing has become necessary.  Favorite pasttimes no longer bring the joy they once did; Nintendo has become tedious, scrapbooking dull, and all the books on the shelves have been flipped through until they are brittle.  We are still searching for signs of life in the outside world, but no car has passed by in hours.  We are beginning to lose hope that this winter blast will be the end of us.

The fist time wasn't so extreme. We were evacuated from a room. The second one was in the middle of a ride in a boat.

I was actually sort of into the Oedipus/Antigone thing when we studied it in school--except for the vocab. Stupid Mrs. Lee made us memorize all that crap, and I only remember a select few of those crazy words that barely aided me in my everyday life. >:(
Title: Re: The GOOD & BAD THREAD (VI)
Post by: Deloria on February 09, 2012, 12:41:07 PM
The vocab is pretty much the same as all Greek vocab, apart from the deeply hated merging words (known as crasis) and some verb irregularities. :) The syntax takes some getting used to though because nothing is where it should be because meter ruins everything. :P What sort of vocab did you have to learn?

I like the Oedipus cycle. XD I really do! I just don't particularly like Antigone as a character. All the moaning about how she wants to die and be beloved in the afterlife for her heroic deeds strikes me as very self-absorbed. :P You shouldn't want to be a martyr, it should just be something that happens. XD And brazenly going to your death just because you're too caught up in the pain of your past (she does actually ask what the point of living is when Zeus has seemingly spared her no shame or pain) when you know you're going to cause a domino-effect of suicides is just selfish. :P

Hmmm, it's been awhile (8 years) since I studied it, so I don't remember word for word what vocab words we did. (See how well learning all of it served me at sixteen years old? ::)) But from what I remember, it was a lot of Greek literary terms: deus ex machina, hubris/hamartia; etc. I wish I could be more specific, but like I said, relatively useless. :)

I just don't particularly like Antigone as a character. All the moaning about how she wants to die and be beloved in the afterlife for her heroic deeds strikes me as very self-absorbed. :P You shouldn't want to be a martyr, it should just be something that happens.

True. Greek tragedies are always melodramatic and over the top, though, so I tried not to get too hung up on all the "moaning." :) Though I'm totally with you! I'd think that it would be sacrilege--especially in ancient Greece to risk the fury of the gods--to try and declare one's self a martyr. :P

Interesting stuff, though. I should go back and reread it all and appreciate them as an adult and not a clueless teenager.

The BAD: Massive exams and I can't work. :(
The BAD: I was unable to sleep last night and it doesn't look very good for tonight either. :(

Sorry to hear that you got hurt, Snabbott, but what a weird way to do so! ;D

THE OH SO OBNOXIOUS: You know those cups that you can buy from Starbucks that look like the cups they use for cold drinks, (http://www.dailydanny.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/starbucks-cold-cup.jpg) but are reusable? I had one of those (from Java Java, NOT Starbucks) sitting in my car this morning, so when I threw my purse on the passenger's side seat this morning when I got into my car, it snagged the top and snapped the straw in half! Now I have an unusable reusable Java Java cup that cost me $14. >:(

THE ALSO OBNOXIOUS: It's freaking snowing again. C'MON, GREAT SPIRIT! I know that the Native Americans used to ask you for a lot, but hear one more desperate cry from a fellow Northwesterner and make it stop!

THE GOOD: Loops make a bit more sense to me, however. Yaaaaaaaaaaay! :highfive:

Ouch... also, sadness that your kids are sick. :(


The GOOD: err... stuff and things... there are some nice people... yeah, that'll do

The WORK: I really, really need to get the stupid CMZ project done--it'd be done now if I hadn't headed off in crazy direction, methinks... :-\
The WORK+: I also need to get my write-up for the 2nd year progress report underway :-\ (it actually IS and it's all in LaTeX this time, so they'll be happy about that ::))
The WORKENING: While models for the CMZ project are running, I can't run models for the G333 project ... kopron... which my supervisor thinks will only take like a couple of weeks, which is probably true if I could dig out what he did to produce the profiles that I want to use as a starting point... so far, this has not worked :-\
The WORKENING II: I think maybe I can get the CMZ done in relatively shortish order of really focused effort :yes: *crosses fingers* (It's just a matter of running a HUGE NUMBER of models in a relatively smallish amount of time, right? :P)... the main problem is when the CMZ/SGR B2 project, G333 project, and the write-up are ALL vying for time in my brain at once... then I quietly explode

The BAD: I am sooooooo busy :bomb:
The BAD: I feel like I have to get everything done all of the time!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

The GOOD: oo... Itzacon this weekend tho' :) I shall see cool and nice people and they will make me feel cool and nice! :D (that's the plan anyway :P)

The taste just isn't my favorite. It tastes burned and icky to me...but then again, my barista friend told me that the beans are deliberately burned a little to add that "distinct Starbucks flavor" to the coffee. Blergh! Keep those beans away from me! :X

Lowlight of my day: There's some new stupid statement on my bank account that claims I am poor now, something about buying a new computer! Pfffft, I got a 15 dollar rebate coming in, that's like 2 dozen doughnuts or almost a night time movie ticket...almost.

Well, it's 3 bytes. Most common encoding systems only use one byte per character, leading to ladidada's computer wanting her to call it some 3-letter name. I didn't look it up, but I have a guess, it it involves not being able to open the pod bay doors. :P

Ok, now I did look it up and her computer is much less subtle than I thought. :P

Highlight of my day:

I GOT TO EAT PASTA! and not just any pasta, my FAVORITE!

Finish still life, for whatever reason that felt like a really short game. I thought it was good, not great though. I love playing multiple characters through time where everything comes together. I thought the voice acting was pretty bad, the dialogue a bit cliche and long winded at times, some annoying puzzles too, REALLY.

I am also marinating ribs (YES YOU CAN DO THIS!) and i will wake up at 7 in the morning to start cooking them for 6 hours and they will be the best ribs ever!

Low light of my day:

I lit a paper towel on fire when I was cooking the pasta, kind of upset me because I don't do stupid things when I cook. Almost made me humble for a moment and consider the face that maybe I am not the best chef in the world but then blew that off.

I only eat meat twice a weekish btw. For health reasons, I find that to be the best balance for me

THE EXCITING: My first quarter as a computer science student ends a week from today--only seven quarters left now! :pleased:

THE SCARY: My whole body has been aching relentlessly for the past two days, and that usually translates into the beginning of the flu for me. Seeing as I haven't had the flu in about three years, I reeeeeeeeally don't feel like getting sick now!

I get home just after midnight and when I go to park, I see a dead opossum and go meh. Cat must have got it, we have wild kitties everywhere. Then when I drive pass it to park, there are 3 little newborn opossums next to it. One is roaming around, one is whining and the other is laying on it's side kicking it feet.

As much as this should treat this as a Old Yeller behind the shed with the shotgun, I can't bring myself to...well end their misery. Don't know who to call, they won't pick them up, they're a menace here. What a horrible start to my weekend. I mean, I feel just terrible now

Title: Re: The GOOD & BAD THREAD (VI)
Post by: ladidada on March 26, 2012, 07:49:12 AM
All my wisdom teeth grew in and this is the conversation I had with my dentist***

Dentist, "GODDA---er, uh *ahem* it appears, SOMEHOW....by LUCK....all your wisdom teeth grew in and had plenty of room...but like you should pay me lots and lots of money to remove them now because like if we ever have to do work on them, it's really hard because they're all the way in the back of your mouth...

*Dentist grabs the biggest, nastiest tool in his arsenal, makes drill sounds with it*

Denist (Cont'd) - "so, when do you want to come in?"

*Dentist makes the $_$ face, does maniacal evil laughter*

Me, "I'd rather wait until I'm in my mid-40s and screaming in fits of pain, TYVM!"

Post by: Haids1987 on March 26, 2012, 03:36:44 PM
 :D Yeeeeeaaaaaaaah, my dentist and I had a similar conversation back when I was nineteen, only it was more like, "Hey Hailey, look at these really gross X-rays! In a few years your wisdom teeth will be here, see the roots all the way up by your cheekbones? Wanna remove them now?" Wish I had said yes, but again, I was nineteen and had no money. Now I'm nudging at 25 and still have no money. :bomb:

THE GOOD: Spring break, beeyatches!  No school until the 3rd! !!!

THE BAD: Teeth still ache.  Been living off of ibuprofin for the past week.

THE MENSTRUATION: I just consumed an entire 10-ounce bag of Hershey's Easter eggs.

Teeth pain is one of the worst. :(

Highlight of my day: I got to come home from work 2 hours early.

Lowlight of my day: I finally broke down crying after 18 months of worker comp hell in front of my boss' boss today. Nobody wants to help me at all. Not my job, not the worker comp people I deal with, not the hospital. All i get is bureaucratic hell from everyone. I have to fill page after page, it takes days(weeks) to get responses. I've become so bitter and unhappy at work. Just 18 months of it all came out. This is the absolute worst experience of my life. 9 days till my surgery and I have to delay again, I'll be devastated.

THE GOOD: I can be loud, walk around naked, and play my music as loud as I want.

THE BAD: I have three very needy golden retrievers who insist on my constant love and affection anytime there's a brief lull in activity. Willie's the worst; he lays his huge head on my lap and whines like a little girl, then jumps on my shoulders to hug me and lick my face with his massive tongue. Boys. ::)

THE SAD: Getting older really, really sucks.  I was 21 when I discovered TSL and thought I was all grown up then!  :stabs:

THE HOPEFUL: The sun is supposed to be out today and the flowers are sweetening the air all over the place. It's beautiful here right now!

Pfft, I AM 25 & single and it is and I am freakin awesome TYVM.

But I know what you mean, figured I'd be married off by now coming home to to a pair of gremlins (children) who'd run and latch onto my legs, connive in laughter as they force me to stumble about like Frankenstein....twisting and turning me about as I try to avoid an acrobatic dog on hind legs, tongue out, doing a one-man waltz to his own barks. And I'd have a wife who'd break out into smile every time she saw me, who'd kiss me on some stupid place like my eye all the time just because I hate it. I'd taste some sauce shes making, make a face-- to the children. Get smacked, shooed out of the kitchen. Eh, you get the point.

But suffice to say, it is better to wait for the right one than...TO ACCEPT ANYTHING less! ^_^. Just be yourself because even though somebody may not like you, somebody else will...and that person will actually love you for who you are! ^_^

Hey, hey, hey, hey. We don't need to start a flame war here, and believe me, them's fightin' words. :P

I know how you feel though. I've been the baby in every social group I've been in. The thing is though that the definition of young keeps getting older since everyone you're around is also getting older. I know I'm not speaking from too much experience here, but don't stress too much about it. You can't control the flow of time, so just make of your life what you want to make of it. It's all good. 8)

That said,
The GOOD: Finally got my state tax return sent in. I wanted to use Turbo Tax, but it turns out they were going to charge me $40 to file my state return because I didn't follow a special link from the department of taxation to get free efiling, and I'd have to start an entirely new account to do that, so then I tried H&R Block, but they wouldn't let me file my state until I filed my federal with them but I'd already filed my federal back in like, February, and the IRS knew that so I couldn't just submit another copy of my taxes. Finally, I tried another tax filing thing, but the internet kept going out so I could fill out my tax information but didn't have enough bandwidth to actually register... It was a long evening. I'm glad my taxes are so simple, because I had to enter all of my information 3 times last night. -_-

Siiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh. You're too young to be so wise, Rosella. :) It's true, and I know I shouldn't be depressed about it, but argh. I just get so sad around every birthday I have. I have amazing friends, an incredible family, and of course my three awesome dogs--but, like you, I've "always been the baby." It's strange and sad to be one of the older kids now.
But suffice to say, it is better to wait for the right one than...TO ACCEPT ANYTHING less! ^_^. Just be yourself because even though somebody may not like you, somebody else will...and that person will actually love you for who you are! ^_^

Did you marry your first love? Some one told me that you're lucky if you marry your first love. I really believe that too. Tis why I spent 6 years of my life dating my first love on again / off again.  I had alot of assumptions about love like...I assumed that each partner loved each other equally...but that's not always the case. And I know they say love is blind but I didn't interrupt it to mean things like....the person you love may steadily become a worse and worse person but that doesn't correlate to mean your feelings for them will grow less and less---> I kind of understand now why some parents don't wan their children dating until a certain age.

And you have a wife and two beautiful babies, Snabbott. You're good, man!
Well, I didn't even date until I was 32. :o

Now that's what I call efficiency. XD

Did you marry your first love? Some one told me that you're lucky if you marry your first love. I really believe that too. Tis why I spent 6 years of my life dating my first love on again / off again.  I had alot of assumptions about love like...I assumed that each partner loved each other equally...but that's not always the case. And I know they say love is blind but I didn't interrupt it to mean things like....the person you love may steadily become a worse and worse person but that doesn't correlate to mean your feelings for them will grow less and less---> I kind of understand now why some parents don't wan their children dating until a certain age.
Well, there were several girls I had major (and unrequited) crushes on before that, but yes, I would say that I married my first true love. :sweetheart:

I was pretty depressed about my "never even had a girlfriend" status prior to meeting my wife, though.

Somehow I think that marrying the first girl you dated at a more mature age is a lot sweeter than dating a guy all four years of high school only for him to come out of the closet six months after breaking up with you.  :P

Last guy I dated, too. Sad business. :(

THE GOOD: Got my research paper done (my first one! :) ) and it didn't take nearly as long to fill up 3-4 pages as I though it would. I hope my professor likes it, and that I cited my sources correctly...

THE BAD: I got a terrible score on my two latest math tests, and am severely disappointed in myself! Plus, I have TSL on my laptop, and I REALLY want to show a friend of mine at college the game (I've already played through all four episodes, and I've explained the storyline of King's Quest to her so as she's not confused about who these people are)... and she has to keep putting it off because her boss keeps making her work at 1:30, which means no Silver Lining for us! This is VERY annoying, because I've gotten her all excited, I already know from playing that the game is great, and I'm sick and tired of carrying that heavy laptop in my backpack for nothing!

MORE BAD: Also, I'm having iPod problems: one of The Silver Lining tracks ("Something Wicked This Way Comes") is out of order in the Album, and is placed at the bottom of the list instead of the top, Nicholas Bolands tracks ("Take Me Over The Sea", "Checkmate!") have for some reason decided to seperate themselves from the rest of the Album and create another (I'm afraid to add both versions of "The Day You Were Gone" for this might happen with those tracks too!), and I can't change any of this in iTunes because I get a message when I click Get Info that says (paraphrased) "This file could not be found, so it cannot be changed." and when I click Locate, nothing happens! Any help would be greatly appreciated! I already posted something about it somewhere on the forum, but I don't remember where and nobody has replied to it!

I was in an on and off relationship with my first love too. I didn't see how much of a jerk he was and he didn't care about anyone else but himself for the most part. It's still a sore spot to say the least. It's not until you're away from the situation and have some prospective that you can see what some things really were.

The good: I had a good time at my interview yesterday. Now the waiting game continues.

THE DEPRESSING: As I wrote the date to take notes for database class just now, I realized that exactly one month from today I will turn 25. :X  :'(  :help:

I turned 25 in Tintern Abbey with Deloria and darthkiwi. :P It softened the blow. ;P (This is an example of understatement, but if you haven't BEEN to Tintern, you might not get that. :P)
TINTERN DAY WAS THE BEST DAY EVER!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

I realise that most of you may not yet understand why. :P Let me explain.

We woke up in our amazing hotel rooms with our extremely comfy beds and baroque ceilings. :D Then we went and had fabulous breakfasts and were picked up by our tour guide. We were then driven around Cardiff and I got to annoy everyone by pointing out all the pretty pediments and turrets and everything!!!!!!!!!!!! :D We saw Roman ruins and got stuffed pet dragons and went to a very pretty castle ruin with reenactors (this was Delling's castle! :D IT REALLY WAS! PEMBROKE FTW! :D). After that we went to lunch at an adorable place with a menu with things like "Henry VIII's Roast Chicken; cut off its head and sack a few monasteries!" and "Naughty Monk's Baguettes" on the menu. Dessert consisted of Delling's first-ever cream tea! :D For everyone who has not had the pleasure of sampling these, they are warm crumpets with clotted cream, butter and strawberry jam and are beyond decadent. :P We then walked over to the Abbey. The beautiful, fantastic, unbelievable, gothic abbey. My abbey. <3 Mine. <3 We discussed nesting and squatting and never leaving. :P Darthkiwi had to carry me out of it. But the abbey and I will never, ever forget each other. <3 We are bound together for life now. <3 We are in love. <3 We are an item. <3 We belong together. <3 We complete each other and only together are we as beautiful as we could be. <3 My abbey. I tried to incite darthkiwi and Delling to commit abbey-theft, but they refused on very silly grounds. :( We then went to see another castle and I mourned. When we got back to the hotel, I gave everyone Easter bunnies! :D Delling's was nougat and Jamie's was raspberry-vanilla-white chocolate. We watched South Park Easter specials and Robin Hood: Men in Tights and we ordered Chinese take-out and ate triple-chocolate fudge cake. :D

SO yes, Tintern Day was awesome. :P And Delling's birthday has become synonymous with Tintern Day. And every year we will make a pilgrimage to Tintern. :P

The Good: Me best mate sent me a message today saying he's going to come visit me for 2 weeks next month, w00t! I unno, maybe it's cuz I'm not from around here but old friends always seem better than new friends these days. Plus, I'll be able to indulge in all my nerdiness ^_^

Nothing satisfies ya more than a hot day of work in the Florida Sun to come home to a nice cold lemon drink with  2.5% kick, eh?

The Good [2]: Also, I went to shopping today! Yay! Bought a bunch of v-neck shirts and white cargo shorts. The hardest thing for me about living in a place that doesn't snow 10 months a year is adjusting to the fashion scene.

The Bad:
I was emptying out a shopping cart and turned around to put the last of the groceries in and of course the shopping cart CAME TO LIFE and started to roll down and it bumped into a Jaguar. Jaguar owners are very mean. Mean people suck fyi.

You really think you didn't get much personal growth (however slow it took to learn the lessons? I dated my first love 6 different times but I learned my lessons!) But yeah, :/ Sometimes its hard seeing the way things are or recognizing our own self-deceits.






Highlight of my day: I got to eat German food today! Food is too often the highlight of my day :/
Lowlight of my day: I was tricked into a blind date today  :furious:!
Behold the conversation:

Maniacally Evil Woman I work with: Hey! Whatcha doin Monday!?
Minding my own business me: Nothing special.
Maniacally Evil Woman I work with: Oh great! You should come over for dinner! My daughter is in town, I think you two would make such a cute couple. She just got out of a bad relationship. You'd like her, she's blonde, blue eyed, likes thrilling things like roller coasters and skydiving and oh btw, she's bi-polar. (.......... :-\ :whip: )
Minding my own business me: !!! Well, I gotta make sure I can--
*Evil woman calls her daughter on the phone, "It's a date!"

I ***REALLY*** have to learn when some one at work says, "What cha doing on so-and-so day!?" to respond with, "I'm going to be out of town....fishing...."

This is the 3rd woman at work who has done this to me too. Out of all the blind dates I've gone on, Only one did I go out with again and one other time we became awesome friends. I really don't want to go but I don't want to hurt the girl's feeling so...whatever.

I use the word awesome...alot... (mispelled maniacally)

Ugh. That's miserable. People actually assume that if you aren't doing something you'd love to go on a date with someone you don't know? That's kind of rude. -_- You could say you have some things you need to work on or something that allows you to say you're busy but also say you can move it to a different day if it's something you actually want to do. XP

I've been tricked onto dates before, but usually the guy asks me if I want to hang out and then after assuming it's platonic, I end up clearly on a date. :P

The GOOD: An awesome alot (http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/2010/04/alot-is-better-than-you-at-everything.html)
The GOOD: Found a cute knitting project to do in the round with double-pointed needles. I've never done it before and it's working really well.
The GOOD: Deciding to make dice bags for everyone in my DnD group. XD

Oooh, that's harsh. But I'm sorry ladida, but I can't help laughing at your amazing description of the conversation! :rofl: Why do your work moms think you need to be set up?

THE SORE: I was sitting at the computer desk wondering why it makes my arms tremble when I open my water bottle and I suddenly had a vivid memory of wildly using hedge scissors to cut the mess out of the juniper bushes with my mama yesterday.  The result? My arms are pulsating in muscley soreness today. But at least I got some aggression out! Some of the branches I was slicing and dicing were as thick as my thumbs and HOO boy, it was a workout!

THE GOOD: Midway through the week...I'm ready for this week to just be a terrible memory...

THE PIXELS: I'm getting irritated that Photoshop sometimes decides to not let me edit my layer. How is it that the clone stamp tool works perfectly for a few seconds, then when I look down at my textbook, look back up, and try again, the stamp screams at me, "NO WAY IN WINDOWS 7, HAIDS!" ???

Sounds like your friends are lucky to have you as such an awesome friend! I can't remember the last time some one took the time to make me something instead of buying me something they spent 2 minutes of their lives putting together

Why do your work moms think you need to be set up?
Hm. I unno, maybe a myriad of things. Ive been down somewhat lately so I guess they think setting me up will make me happier. And I guess you could consider me the "male" version of the "girl next door." Mothers find me to have all the qualities in a guy that some one like their daughters deserves. And you know, its nice that so many people want to set me up with all their daughters and nieces or you know the cute beer girl at the golf course but.......has anyone actually asked me what kind of girl I like? NO!!!. I feel like people are setting me up not because they think we would "be great togehter" but more so because they KNOW some one who is single. Or rather I would be a great boost of confidence for them.

I'm much more into quiet people, old souls, readers, grey area minded people instead of black or white minded folk, who don't care what others think and embrace their inner nerds. I totally heart "Kewl type of nerds" ^_^

Ah I've never been on a blind date either. I agree with you though. People should consider what qualities the person in question finds attractive before embarking on this kind of thing. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Also, on the making you happier tangent. One should have a a good sense of self and where they are in life before trying to date. If not, there's a risk of losing your whole identity because it's so invested in this other person. That happened to me and never again. I do miss that companionship and tenderness. But I'm not ready. I don't know fully who I am as an adult away from my parents and college. I need to figure that out first.

The good: I get to go on my family's vacation.
The good: All four of us will be together for Mom's birthday during said vacation

You know what, that is absolutely how I have felt for a long time. Thank you! But yeah, I haven't up for dating anyone for a long time because I haven't been....well happy with myself. I've been through a lot over the last year and I don't my happiness to be based on some one else. I made that kind of mistake before too and you can fall hard! I'm just starting to feel better ^_^ In a month, I'll be back to myself ...FINALLY.

*Nods* hopefully we both have learned from our mistake. I've had to rebuild myself in the aftermath and it's not an easy process. We are taking my grandad with us to go see my aunt uncle and cousins. We don't have anything real special planned; we just want to hang out together. Then Monday the parents, brothers and I are going to a different town to celebrate my mom's 60th. (Grandad will stay at relative's house and be brought back home later). It's her day so it'll be waterfalls and hiking and a quaint southern town. But at least we will all be together.

Well, I had lots and lots of personal growth the moment I realised it was over. :D And then I went back because I was hospitalised and I needed support. :-\ And then went on for about a year and then I freed myself and found myself in a real live relationship with someone who actually likes me. :D

The Good: I had an oddly good time with my friends this weekend whom I tend to get annoyed by much as of late.

Mom, "Is she great or what!!!"
Me, "....walk with me...."  :stabs: :help:

What was she like? :P

At first, very shy. Wouldn't look me in the eyes. Responsive talker type. Wouldn't ask me anything, only respond with short little sentences. But once she loosened up, it got a lot better. Shes into motorcycles and my little pony, fast cars, reads fantasy, likes dogs. Me, not a car person and I mostly read non-fiction things but I like dogs and I would love to ride on a motorcycle! Never done that, I could pretend I'm Gabriel Knight! But uh, when she brought up her music taste, a big red light went off. I asked her about the lyrics if she "knows how to have fun" and it didn't take long to learn she smokes pot, has a sexual lifestyle thats a turn off and dropped out of school. Something off about her, she comes off a little bit too "I'm right, you're wrong".

Drugs are always a red flag and a big NO-NO! I have a hundred horrible stories about friends and drugs. I have already lost so many of my friends from them. Just awful things.

To sum it up, she's not for me.

To answer Ms. Deloria
She's bi and simply put its a turn off. Most bi folk I have known since high school tend to be way too under-sexed to stay faithful in a relationship. I have been cheated on enough.... But I suppose you could say I have  presumptively assume between the pot and bi-ness, her dropping out school and general gut feeling....that she is not in my best interest.

I might have to take you up on that offer Haids and transfer up to Seattle. I grew up in the same weather (My best memories are on rainy, cloudy days), and I believe Washington has no state income tax. Two pluses for me. Best of all, I could indulge my secret love of adventure games with somebody for once in my life!!! I have never met a person who has heard of KQ or SQ or PQ or the GK series. :/

THE GOOD: Made my 3rd contribution to the NMNH ^_^
The BAD: Rent going up 70 dollars a month for a place I hate living
THE CREEPY: Some woman was knocking on my door last night at 2:30 for 15 minutes. The heck I'm going to open up my door at 2:30 in a city life this!

I might date you too, ladaida. But I live on other side of the county as Hailey does :P (I don't know where you live, though.) Christian, a little bit of a nerd, virgin, don't drink or do drugs. A bit intellectual. But like I said, I'm not sure I should be investigating that side right now.

The only person I know in real life who knows about adventure games is my brother who played them alongside me mostly. That's why I love it here. I don't feel like so much of a geek :P

The good: Had an awesome time with my family and the relatives over the weekend
The good: Mom's birthday made her happy
The good: I may have to travel to Kentucky next week for a job interview. Mom wants Dad to travel with me (since it is a 7 to 8 hour drive from here). Still, looking forward to the possibility.

I might have to take you up on that offer Haids and transfer up to Seattle. I grew up in the same weather (My best memories are on rainy, cloudy days), and I believe Washington has no state income tax. Two pluses for me. Best of all, I could indulge my secret love of adventure games with somebody for once in my life!!! I have never met a person who has heard of KQ or SQ or PQ or the GK series. :/
XD Well, let me know the next time you're in the area! ;)

THE CREEPY: Some woman was knocking on my door last night at 2:30 for 15 minutes. The heck I'm going to open up my door at 2:30 in a city life this!
Ugh. That's really, REALLY creepy. Was she saying anything as she was knocking? Like, "I KNOW YOU'RE IN THERE, CROSBY! JUST OPEN THE DOOR!"?

The good: I may have to travel to Kentucky next week for a job interview. Mom wants Dad to travel with me (since it is a 7 to 8 hour drive from here). Still, looking forward to the possibility.
:highfive: Good luck!

To answer Ms. Deloria
She's bi and simply put its a turn off. Most bi folk I have known since high school tend to be way too under-sexed to stay faithful in a relationship. I have been cheated on enough.... But I suppose you could say I have  presumptively assume between the pot and bi-ness, her dropping out school and general gut feeling....that she is not in my best interest.

Yikes. I don't want to start a flame war here, but that sort of made me a bit sick to my stomach.
Being bisexual doesn't mean you can't get enough so you'll do it with anyone. I mean, to be perfectly honest, if a girl really wants to put herself out there, there are usually enough guys interested. :P But honestly, with people who are genuinely into both sexes, it's a lot like being into both brunettes and blondes. You like both, but you don't feel like, when you're with a blonde, "Man, I need some brunette lovin' on the side to keep me satisfied." I understand if you didn't think she was your type (the choices she's made seem sketchy at best), but being bisexual and having a high sex drive aren't necessarily related and honestly, neither is having a high sex drive and cheating. Bisexuality isn't a choice that people with loose morals make to get more, it's a sexual orientation.

But yeah, rereading what I wrote, I could have taken the time to chose better words to say the least :/

It's true that in the end what was offensive was the implication that you assumed ALL bisexuals were going to be "that way" towards you (which is unfair and thus the reaction).

As for the bit I've italicized: consider this, there is a guy here in Ireland whose exes, having never said they were bi or gay before dating him, have routinely gone from dating him to dating a girl. I assure you he doesn't like his reputation for that either. :P ::) But, look, this is just the reality of dealing with people: no matter how much we demand that IT REALLY IS SIMPLE: YOU'RE JUST BORN THAT WAY or whatever, it turns out that people and sex for that matter are actually really complicated. :yes: (which is to say... it's not really your fault or this other guy's fault that these girls went direct from you to other girls. It's something to do with them AND your mutual interactions.)

I'm sure you didn't mean anything hateful from it, but what you said really did come off as offensive and I thought that merited a response. Just keep in mind that even though you may have dated some bisexual girls with less-than-strict rules about fidelity, it just means you've dated some girls who weren't good fits for you.

Though for what it's worth, I've recently come to the decision that I'm actually a lot more comfortable with a guy dating a guy after me than dating a cheap knockoff of me (or worse, a better version of me). :P

But don't worry, no harm done (at least to me), and I don't bear any ill will toward you. I did just want you to keep in mind how some people might have far more of a right to be offended than I. :)

Nothing major, folks, so no worries. I'm just hormonal and am crashing down from a really emotional couple weeks...and Mother Nature was like, "Hey Haids, I have an A W E S O M E idea! Let's make you NOT start your period for the entire time you're going through your emotional stress, then the very day the memorial is over, I'll make you bleed like you've been slashed from the inside!!!" ::)

Now I'm like, "DO PEOPLE HAVE TO BE SO LOUD WHEN THEY COUGH?! WHY DOES EVERYONE HAVE TO HAVE THEIR MUSIC UP SO MUCH? THE BASS IS KILLING MY BRAIN!!" Gaaaaaaah. Boys, consider yourselves lucky.

Haha, sorry for scaring you. I feel better today (I think). I've actually been recommended birth control by several friends , but I've never talked to the doctor about it, since I'm not sexually active. And also, since the doctor himself has never recommended it, I'm reluctant to bring it up.

THE GOOD: New day, new coffee, momentary sunshine (literally AND figuratively)

THE BAD: So we have a staff meeting tonight and I'm like, "Man, I'm a closer now, there's no way to get out of this!" I have been regularly skipping staff meetings for the last nine months, so since it starts at 6:30 and I'm already there till 6:30, I really have no excuse this time...

I hope you are feeling better Kelsey. *hugs* 

Hailey, you don't have to be sexually active to use it. I know a few people who take it for other reasons. My doctor offered to put me on it because I have terrible cramping. But because I am on two depression medications and therefore my hormones are being messed with. I don't want to mess that up possibly.

The good: Did well on my interview today.
The annoying: Have to go home and wait for him to interview two other candidates.
(Did I mention the waiting game is tedious?)

Post by: koko_99_2001 on May 02, 2012, 04:30:15 AM
I agree with Kristen. I was on birth control before I was sexually active. There's nothing wrong with it, and when you're wanting to hold to the value of remaining a virgin until marriage, being on birth control didn't make the waiting harder (meaning, for me it wasn't more tempting to be sexually active because I was on birth control).

The GOOD: TCAP testing is over

I tried three days ago. It didn't work. Apparently an opiate intolerant and extremely underweight girl can take 80mg of liquid oxycontin (so 2mg/kg), grapefruit juice, tonic water, vodka, benzodiazepines, and sleeping tablets (imidazopyridines) and live. ::) Who knew?

It's not about who loves me and who doesn't. It's about being completely exhausted and feeling hopeless after being in pain every single day for four years and then having the one thing that had even a chance of working and that could have made life tolerable snatched away. When life becomes unendurable, the affection anyone might have for you becomes utterly inconsequential and completely irrelevant. And no, it's not going to get better.

That may all be true, but (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JsvnElDAFGc&feature=player_detailpage#t=6s)... (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYaa4wa72uw&feature=related) ... (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYOlObhu6NM&feature=fvwrel) acute depression should be treated by a cute kitty! :cat: :yes:

And no, it's not going to get better.
In thermodynamics, a heat bath is an object of significant volume held at a constant temperature so that when something is put into it, that something will approach the temperature of said heat bath. It could get better: if we submerged you into a "cat bath"--room of a significant volume held at a constant level of fuzzy cuddliness! :D At which point, when you are coated in purring kitties, you will approach the zen-elation of purring dozing kitty. (Arguably, this is only improving the circumstances in which you are in pain... but kittehs!) :cat: :yes: (I however know you would find it hard to argue with kittehs :P)

Deloria, I'm so sorry to hear that things are so s****y right now for you. That's awful, and I can't really imagine what it must be like. And as it all sounds very drastic, I have to ask if there's someone else you can stay with (your living situation does not sound good for you at all), and if you can see a therapist to help you get through this. I would hate, hate, hate to hear that something has taken any of our forumers away from us, especially by their own hands, and you have been with us for years, an active member of this community, and you would be missed by us all.

Please find a non-destructive way to help you through this. I don't know the details of your situation, but there's always another option, even if am improbable one, even if it means relying on someone else to be strong and carry you through it, and it's clear that the way things are right now for you is not maintainable or healthy.

Dealing with my fair amount of medical stuff myself right now, so let me assure you this is from very recent experience...

Now, I don't know the precise details of what happened, but I'm sure whatever your mother did can be undone or at re-done so that whatever it is that will make you feel better can be back on the table again. It may take some more time, and I know that SUCKS beyond belief, and it may take getting out of that living situation or other actions that make it more complicated and difficult to do.... but I assure you, if this is the way that you will feel better there is still a way to get it for you, somehow. The medical industry is full of idiots, inept morons, and dolts.... but even the bureaucrats have a tiny bit of compassion and they understand that things happen -- especially when you're in pain -- and they will not leave you high and dry with no hope.

....that doesn't mean they'll speed up processing your paperwork after they messed it up three times, but that's my story not yours. Have Cray-Q-uestie Hug!

GOOD: Started my 5th Annual Pixar Marathon yesterday to celebrate Brave coming out this month, and last night, we had company over: a friend of my Mama's, Jenn, and her little just turned 2 year old named Jenna. We watched Toy Story (1995), and Jenna was completely engrossed in it! It was adorable!

BAD: Still worried about Deloria. Very much worried!  :(  :'( :no: :hug: Please, please, please just... stay strong. Have Courage, have Faith. You ARE loved here, my dear. Even the ones who don't even know you (like me), still care about you.

Yeah, no, unfortunately not. I was going to do something many people would find morally questionable and that is borderline legal here but something with which everyone involved was okay considering my rather desperate circumstances. :P She blew the whistle and now no one will touch it. There is no fix for this.

Deloria.
I thought we discussed this.
Bathing in the blood of infants ONLY makes you look younger. Although it is a little bit festive.

...was that not it? :P


And is there something preventing you from reaching out to other medical professionals, introducing them to your case, getting them on board with the plan and going from there? I mean, no, it's not ideal and it means more time but there are other doctors, aren't there?

But, see, the only stop gaps here are my very real concerns of how he might react and my own inaction... the inaction is an inveterate problem. ...it is fed by the concerns (is he straight? how homophobic is he? how likely is this to backfire horribly?? can I breach this subject with him without the rest of the office finding out?

But I neeeeeeed people!
And really some of the relaxing things shouldn't involve other people, but apparently they just want to horn in.

And forgive me for my response here, this is the sort of thing that my friends tell me makes me "queen out" (I hate the term but the only better one is "Gay Best Friend out" which is almost as bad, I think :P)
Quote
The BAD: so... there's this guy doing an internship in my office over the summer that I've kind of had a crush on for a while... I am monumentally F A I L at this... :(
OMG. First of all, nothing relaxes me like gossip so tell me EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nownownownonownownow!!
Hair color, eye color, glasses? No glasses? Tall? Thin? Muscular? Short? What's his clothing style like? Okay, if you're monumentally fail we may have to start small with the other questions. Have you talked to him yet?

So, I have moderate game I would say. Most of the time. The more interested I am in someone, however, the less flirtatious I am and the less game I have.
Okay, cannot believe I'm going to tell this story on the Internet but I will. Fine.
SO, last summer we had two interns at my store. One of whom was SUPER cute. To protect the innocent we'll call him "Peter". Now, some quick recon (my friends and I are experts) revealed that he was -- in fact -- gay. But taken. Still, super cute. But, I know I'm not making any moves -- so that should have put me back up to my usual cool factor, right? All before we ever speak -- very efficient, very cool. In theory.
So, our first conversation went something like this.
HIM: I don't think we've met yet.
ME: No, no, we haven't. I'm uh...... I'm...
HIM: I'm...
BOTH OF US: Peter.
Yes, that's right. Even though I'm wearing a clearly visible name tag. Even though my name is decidely NOT Peter. I managed to introduce myself with his name to him. (I sort of switched mid-sentence from stammering through introducing myself to finishing his sentence -- finishing his sentence would also have been a bad move though. All in all, it was very bad moment for my brain.)
The good news is, when you embarrass yourself that badly there's not really anywhere to go downhill to, so I did regain my cool factor pretty swiftly afterwards.

Short strawberry blonde hair, blue eyes, glasses, but he rests them on top of his head a lot which causes him to squint across the room ;P (...it's cute). He's about my height and pretty thin.

His clothing style is usually fairly "dressy", sort of fancy coats, the odd dress shirt here and there in everyday attire, but lately, he's been wearing all of this Formula One stuff.

We have spoken a few times... the other day we were talking about Tolkien and I got to tell him about The Silmarillion... and all its many versions (he seemed interested). A week or so ago, he sprained his wrist while dancing (he fell... he does Irish step dancing professionally) and I may have invited him to Capoeira, suggesting it might help build up his wrists... but I don't think I was direct enough. :S :-\ And the other day when Lisa (another postgrad in the office) was saying to him how he should arrange for us all to go out and see one of his shows... she cut him off just as he was saying: "I think Bran...don would enjoy it." (Like he got as far as Bran... before she started talking over him ::) )

Not like this:

Because if he's switched from a fairly cute style of clothing to that then obvi he needs an intervention before you pursue this any further.

I'm not gonna lie. I love all things sword and sorcery, but I cannot cannot cannot stomach the Silmarillion or most of the "extra writings" (as I call them) from Tolkein. He has this whole world he developed, and it's awesome, and there's so much detail and I love it all.... and I want to consume it in an encyclopedia or wiki format and not, like, a book format. And if he'd just done that completely, he could have cut down on so much excess and ALL the stories that got written would be total classics, and totally readable and I would be a much happier person.

Also, it sounds like it's something he wouldn't be able to do until after his wrist is better. While it's sprained, he's not going to be able to do as much so he needs a "friend" (i.e. date) to do stuff with him like movies and non-wristy activities!
Y'know, unless we need to slow this down for his fashion intervention.

No, but, see that's good. Since you were included in this plan, do not be too annoyed with this postgrad. Starting casually with group things might be good, and you may be able to leverage this postgrad into doing most of the work for you which is good if you're fumbling with directness. :P

Ha... that is very similar to how that conversation went: basically, long story short, read the story portions of Books of Lost Tales, because they are more narratively fulfilling to read than any of the other renditions/versions of the Silmarillion (and the world is just a lot more fun/interesting in those books).

That would have been a clever plan... but I was being fail at asking him to the movies as it was and he seemed to think his wrist was recovered enough to do some stuff, so I slipped the suggestion into conversation around the subject anyway.

Well, Lisa was just talking over him... so I'm pretty sure he said "I think Brandon would enjoy it" but can't be 100% certain.

That was my original thinking on this front, but Lisa more or less seems to dominate the conversation and force things along her expectations to some extent. ::)

All in all, I think this is going well. Except maybe for the clothes thing....
I think the clothes thing is partially because of the current Formula One races... (though saying that XD he wore the same Formula One stuff for a large part of the fall semester :-X).

The WORST: I am going back to the States tomorrow ::) (I have a 6 hour layover in JFK :( ...this also imposes this awkward pause in this whole dealing with crush thing :-\)

The BAD: I may be going further insane... s'alright... I came prepared... I can ramble crazily in 7 languages. :yes: Bring it lunacy.

The GOOD: So, I had this dream where I was in such a hurry to get to the airport that I'd forgotten my checked bag. I was standing there at the gate to board (it was a dream, hush) talking with a Delta Customer Service rep... she was like going over my old flights and saying like how I'd had all these good times like that time I got a row to myself... "on an airplane". I pointed out to her that that was one time to which she responded by repeating "on a plane".

Me: Adding "on a plane" to a noun phrase does not instantly make it better!! Genocide "on a plane"! Lunacy... yea, but "on a plane" tho'. (At this point in my dream, the other people were looking at me like I was crazy. On top of which, I just remembered that I was in Ireland and had gotten there safe and sound with my luggage and thus was dreaming.)

Thank you, Tess. :) I appreciate the long-distance hug.  :-*

Like I said, I still feel pretty numb about it, and I know that she was ready to go home with my Grandpa. It's just so disconcerting that this is the third act of God that took someone's life in three months. Should I move to some distant, remote island away from everyone? :-\

bad: I don't really want to specify, but, my personal issues aren't going well today. Just recently was told something devistating, and I'm really upset right now. For the sake of privacy I won't say what. Plus, I have writers block, and because of the bad news, I don't feel like writing nor doing any homework.

Yea, we actually started this process at least a year ago when I was still in school and couldn't get it through an employer.

But...they can do that? Just turn down a customer willing to pay for said insurance?
Guess so, said they consider me too risky.

THE BAD: I showed a friend of mine The Silver Lining today as well... we got maybe fifteen minutes into the game (it was after Graham got his hat and stuff on and I was heading towards the garden to talk to Titania and Oberon) when he said:"I'm not really an Adventure gamer." and left to go play games on Steam.

*sigh* Atleast Cassie was a little more enthusiastic about it.

Ooh, what kind of board game? :)

I don't think people who haven't played the earlier games can really understand; it's a work of fan fiction that doesn't make sense when taken out of context. It caters specifically to KQ fans by bringing in characters we've met and loved in past gaming experiences. People who haven't had those won't be touched in the same way.

The GOOD: I have a study schedule!
The GOOD: It doesn't seem overwhelming! XD
The BAD: I should probably be panicking more. :P
The GOOD?: 28 days before my written exams are over! 54 days until my oral exams are over! THEN NINE MONTHS OFF TO COMMIT GENOCIDE (spiders), TRAVEL THE WORLD AND DO MORALLY REPREHENSIBLE THINGS! :D
The BAD: K dramas are as addictive as they are insipid. XD I'm not sure I like myself right now. :P

What kind? Well, the goal is: You (and whomever else is playing with you) have been captured onto an alien ship, and thanks to a very convenient temporary power outage from passing by a solar flare, have broken out of the Brig and try to make your escape. Unfortunately, this temporary power outage both helps and hinders you. Why? Because, not only have you gotten out, but also all the robots and various experiments are running around rampant in the ship!

Your goal is to reach the Bridge, where the Captain Great Cthulhu awaits you and when you defeat him, you need to reach the escape pod.

This game involves a LOT of dice (twenty sided and six sided), and a LOT of lucky rolls along with them. I felt so sorry for Dennis (one of our teammates), because he was doing so well in the beginning... and then he fought the Head of Security, got him down to 5 health and then Albert stepped in and not only killed the boss, but stole the item he dropped too because he got a higher roll!

Then, things just went south for him, as he was getting event space after event space and had to keep fighting and fighting and getting beat up, and when he finally reached the Medical Bay it got worse. Why? Because like everything else, it depends on your roll. Roll a 5 or lower, you hurt yourself for 5 damage (and he had 6 health and a maximum of 20). Roll between 6 and 18, you heal yourself completely. Roll between 19 and 20, you heal yourself completely AND increase your maximum health by 50%. Dennis got, like, 4 on his die and hurt himself for 5 damage. Now, he has 1 HP left and is considering just giving up. He goes outside the Medical Bay, lands on an event space... and the Event Card that says "A Security Turret spots you on its radar and ZAPs you! You lose 1 HP!" and died instantly!

"Oh come on! That's like coming out of the hospital and getting run over by the ambulance!"

I was tempted to make a Space Quet reference, since his bad luck reminded me of all the nasty ways Roger could die.

In contrast to me, who was doing GREAT up until the very end: I got the BFG amongst other weapons I don't remember, had barely lost any HP at all, managed to kill the Weapons Master (the one boss guarding the Armory) IN ONE HIT by getting a roll of 20, AND I was the one who killed Cthulhu IIRC... and then I ended up tripping over my own clumsy feet (as I said) by getting a roll of 6 (three six sided dice all of them rolled on 2) when I need 9 to reach the escape pod. In fact, the only one who made it was Albert, the one who as Dennis quoted was "The one who rode on everyone's coat tails." although, Albert didn't agree with that statement.

All in all a very fun game, but very much based on luck.

As for TSL, that's the thing. I TRIED to explain the backstory to him (about Graham, his family, and trying to summarize each game), including the significance of the Black Cloaks... but he just didn't care about any of that.

I told him to give it a chance since it has a great story and great characters (thanks to, of course Katie and Cezar I assume), but he told me, "If I want that, I'll read Isaac Asimov, Terry Pratchett enc..."

People who haven't played the earlier games? Um... what about me? I haven't picked up ANY of the KQ games, and have only knowledge of them through various Let's Plays (Paw, Dilandau3000, hercrabbiness enc), Paw's Retrospective (how I found out in the first place what KQ is), TV Tropes, the King's Quest Omnipedia and this site. The only games I've ever picked up are the AGD remakes of 1, 2 and 3 (but after seeing a couple Ways To Die videos on IA's version of 3, I will probably never pick up that. I think it's the graphics and voice acting that get to me, especially since I was introduced to AGDI' version first.)

I haven't played ANY of the official games, and yet I love The Silver Lining regardless! I didn't even know what King's Quest really was (aside from "It's an old brutal game from Sierra!" whispered about on TV Tropes) up until last year.

Yet, you guys accepted me here regardless.

Title: Re: The GOOD & BAD THREAD (VI)
Post by: Deloria on October 21, 2012, 01:43:06 PM
Whether you've played them yourself or not is irrelevant - you've experienced them through Let's Plays. You grew with the characters because you experienced their struggles through watching them and projecting onto them; it's like growing attached to characters in a movie because you've seen them grow and develop and they've helped you grow and develop through that by making you consider things you hadn't or wouldn't have.

I just find it's generally not enough to only be *told* the backstory because the same level of attachment isn't there (after all, how could it be? When you watch or play a game you spend hours and hours with the character, whereas it's only a few minutes if you're just told the story or read the wiki article).
Title: Re: The GOOD & BAD THREAD (VI)
Post by: GrahamRocks! on October 21, 2012, 03:29:43 PM
Okay then, explain why my other friend Cassie was liking it a lot more?

I did send her some videos in an Email, but she didn't get a chance to watch them, since she doesn't have much time at her computer. I sent her another Email before videos one, which was me continuing on what I'd told her before about the series while I was with her in the same class. She didn't get a chance to read that either for the same reasons, and when we FINALLY got to episode 1, I just recapped and read aloud all that I'd wrote anyway from Quest For The Crown to Mask of Eternity (what I knew of each game at the time) and I even mentioned the AGD remakes, and told her specifically "The AGD Remakes are seperate timelines, and hadrack and The Father aren't the same."

She's never seen anything King's Quest related, aside from what I've shown her, and she liked it anyway.

Post by: Jafar on October 21, 2012, 03:37:33 PM
It's not really something you can boil down to a science. :P
Cassie just might've been more open to checking it out for whatever reason. In any case though, I think Deli has a point. TSL is a very referential game, and you really have to know the previous games to really get everything.
And it's easier to form a connection with something when you're experiencing it, rather than just hearing about it.
Title: Re: The GOOD & BAD THREAD (VI)
Post by: Deloria on October 21, 2012, 04:03:16 PM
TSL is a very, very pretty game; the music and the graphics are gorgeous and that's enough to draw a lot of people in at first glance, especially if they're more visually oriented. Your other friend might have just been a bit bored or frustrated with all the references he didn't get, especially if he's used to Discworld novels, where one can jump in anywhere in the series and still get pretty much all the references.

And the game you designed sounds really fun. :) I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to comment earlier.

That's true. Up until very, VERY recently (like say, a month or so ago) I wouldn't have gotten most of the Gabriel Knight references in TSL and TH&GS if I hadn't watched Dilandau's LPs of Gabriel Knight 1 and 2 (and recently 3) before playing again. Because I now got the joke, I got a big laugh out of Graham saying "What can you tell me about... Voodoo?" to Black Widow with the "Shadows (hunters)" question.

Graham can surprisingly imitate Tim Curry' Gabe quite well.

Ah, Discworld. I've been hoping to get into that series for awhile (alongside Doctor Who), but I wouldn't even know where to begin!

According to Stephen Fry, whom I trust in all things, coffee only works if you're a coffee drinker - and only then because it gets rid of the withdrawal symptoms of not having caffeine in your system. :P If you're not a regular coffee drinker, it won't help. :P However, the same has not been said yet of sugar! :D

I do! And it's not going to end any time soon. I have between 2 and 3 Christmas presents to make still, a friend's dress to hem, and our pastor's wife asked me to make some flags for their children's program...all before Christmas!! XD I'm sewing my little fingers off these days!

And after Christmas, I get to start on Erik's Ren Fest costume for May :)


Goodness Catherine.... I am only guessing that Erik does all the cooking and cleaning, then? :P

lol, no. I learned very quickly with the one hour drive to work each day that the crock pot is my friend. So I put together the meals in the morning and we get home from work, and voila, supper is served! As for cleaning, we do a great job of sharing that responsibility...but many times I will walk into the kitchen and all the dishes are loaded and the dishwasher is running :) Though, with the sewing I had to do today, Erik volunteered to do the grocery shopping today...and did an amazing job with it too, I must say!

We're fine here. No power outages, no water shut off.  It's been raining nonstop for two days now. We had snow this morning but it didn't stick to the road, thankfully. Other parts of my state got a foot or more of snow.' That's in the mountains, though, where the ski resorts are. I'm lucky compared to a lot of people in this storm

GOOD: Although it was INCREDIBLY annoying, I was able to get my Microsoft Access project done. Why was it annoying? Because the instructions weren't clear enough on how you were supposed to do the steps. What's good about this? I was slightly ahead of the rest of the class (although I'm not sure if it's because the last project I had to took like 20 minutes out of a 2 hour class which was just copy-paste, copy-paste copy-paste with it being boring but quick, or I just caught on a tiny bit faster than everyone else on what I had to do) and thusly... I was the only one who was able to finish the project and submit it before class ended. Everyone ele had to take it home with them!

BAD: We're moving! I'm sad~! :( My parents are seperating! I'm sad~! I have something due tomorrow, but I don't want to work anymore on a holiday! I'm tired~! :( Well, I guess I could get up early anyway, since I don't leave until 10:30 or so.

I had already taken this class before last semester (failed it because I didn't do some of the assignments and instead just worked on the Comprehensive Projects), and the HTML assignment was actually one of the first thing we ever did back in the other class, so I knew how HTML worked pretty well! So well in fact, that I was able to help another classmate (Derek) go through it and he picked it up pretty well!

My professor told me "This was just to whet your appetite for databases."

If you believe in it, just know that Someone is watching you and sees the good you've done today! :)

BAD: Access hates me. But, you knew that already! Luckily I only have one more project which is part of my Comprehensive Project, which is very simple according to my professor.
Is it bad that I'm getting pleasure out of seeing other people suffer with Access? I mean, of course it sucks that you're having a hard time, but I feel better knowing others have such a issue with it too! :P

GOOD?: I overslept by 6 hours this morning and completely missed class. Ah, well, carpe diem.

Oh, that's good. I like that. XD

The BAD: wasted about an hour going up to the GNIB office to see that it was still Frigida, Mala Regina Occidentalis, on duty ::)

The SAD: the thought just occurred to me as the GNIB office is clearly where the other gardaÝ send you when they don't want you around, maybe she just does this to people for the sake of company?? But then I figured that's like having sympathy for the devil and I want no part of that. :P Besides that would imply that the other guards don't like the super-nice guy who is the personification of cÚad mÝle fßilte :( :o :no: Also, even if it were that pitiful, it's no justification for what she does to people. :-\

The GOOD: after a hiccup or two, a certificate of insurance is on its way. I explained to Icy McQueen over there that it would take as long as it takes (and that 1--the garda for the last two years has accepted my documentation as it was and 2--I was told last year to bring in the same documentation and it would be fine... ...she proceeded to accuse me of attempting to defraud the immigration office in several ways ::) (it's called a chill pill, hun): "Honey chil', puh-lease! If I wanted to defraud y'all, I could just not show up... an' this ain' exactly whitty repartÚ, so what is it exactly you think I get out of this?")

The IRONY: She was very irritated with me for being a few days late... if I get the other one after my insurance info comes in, I can say "The other garda sent me away saying I needed different proof of insurance; I told her that would take as long as it takes to come in and I would have no control over it. She didn't care. Here I am: here's my proof of insurance."

No coffee or chocolate. At least on my diet restrictions, I was allowed at certain times but for right now it's not.

Allegedly, according to my neurologist these things aggravate the pain when it does occur. Nerve damage situation is painful still but somewhat under control now, mostly due to excruciatingly painful physical therapy, but cephalgia is still no joke.

I've been drinking tea but I just realized that some of them even have MORE caffeine than coffee. So I guess I'll just drown in my tears instead. Be all dramatic and whatever. Hate this.

Good: Got my homework for Game Design class done before midnight. And, relived my childhood once again with installing the original Zoo Tycoon on my windows 7 computer. And it works even after 11 years!

Bad: My Grandma's keyboard, which I used to complete my assignments since I don't get Internet aside from her pc and my phone (which I'm currently using to type all this right now), is way WAAAAAY too small for me. And, whenever I type in a cheat code such as "Xanadu" or "Cretaceous Corral" in my exhibit names... The game crashes! I'm running in windows XP compatibility mode, and it never did this before! I can't look on the official website for help either, since it's been changed to the ZT2 site for 8 years now!

The ridiculous thing is that no one will send me for an MRI because they maintain that everything that is wrong with me, has ever been wrong with me or will ever be wrong with me is psychosomatic and stress-related. ::) I hate doctors here.

We were SUPPOSED to go see Wreck It Ralph at Movie Tavern today, since he had never seen it, and I had and loved it. What happened?

The BAD: I am having the worst time at work. My manager promoted someone over me who's grossly incompetent just because the two of them are bros, and now, a seasonal has 13 hours this week while I have none. It's clearly based on personal biases and that's not fair.
The BAD: I'm really not used to people not liking me... :(

Sad: My Yoga class ended today. I liked that class!

Good?Bad?I Dunno: Good. Lord. Chapter 6 of King's Quest 5 has almost 35 PAGES written for it! And I'm STILL not done!

Let's see what I have so far:

The scenes in the Dark Forest.

The reuniting of Herbert and Alicia.

The meeting with the Gnomes.

The Tambourine is given to Cedric.

The rescuing of the Ants and the Rat.

I'm about to do the scenes with the Baker Bros and the Toymaker and Mama and Sonny Cincinattus, and after that the Inn (which ends the chapter on them being knocked out.) Then begins the next chapter... which I've been looking forward to writing for months...

How long is your story, Taylor? I'm working on a fan fiction but only average 3/4 pages a chapter.

The good: My fan fiction is getting to the meat in the plot.
The bad: My readers might get mad at me and quit reading.

King's Quest 5? *ahem* how about right here? http://www.postudios.com/blog/forum/index.php?topic=11967.0

or here? http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8093362/1/King-s-Quest-5-Absence-Makes-the-Heart-Go-Yonder (note: the line breaks and italics are a little... off for the first 3 chapters. It's getting fixed after a half hour.)

Unless you were talking about the latest chapter, which is in a Word document.

And another one i'm working on is this, a Quest for Glory fanfiction, taking place in an AU Gloriana (just like my King's Quest 5 fanfic is also an AU World of Daventry) that I like to call the Three Heroes universe, which you'll be able to find why it's called that just by the prologue. http://www.postudios.com/blog/forum/index.php?topic=12025.0

You can also find it here. http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8108133/1/Quest-For-Glory-So-You-Want-To-Be-A-Hero (note: same line breaks trouble as before, but it should fix itself soon)

I also have two more fanfictions on my FF.Net profile... that I haven't updated in 4 years! And probably never will unless I remake them somehow because they're awful compared to how I am as a budding writer these days.

Good: The one good thing about not being able to sleep is how productive you become.

Yeah, when I couldn't sleep this week, I was all "I should get up and do some work" but the office work I can do at home is mostly grading (rather than research). I didn't want to do that because I couldn't be certain that I could really focus/be fair and whatnot. Soooooooo, I wrote instead... which really put my brain into overdrive sort of--ALL OF THE IDEAS!!!--and thus had even less chance of getting to sleep.

My experience is that I become much less productive without sleep. That's not sleeping due to overwork, though. Maybe it's different with insomnia? I don't know - I haven't ever had that problem. :-\

I find it really depends on the level of exhaustion. When I'm exhausted due to lack of sleep and keep pushing myself, I move beyond exhaustion into a sort of euphoria and transcendent majesty in which I start feeling as though I have perfect clarity and have ALL TEH THOUGHTS. XD

Bad: I'm le tired. XD
Good: I have most everything done for tomorrow.

Good: School starts tomorrow, at 3 PM to 8:20. I'm starting on a lower-level Math class this time, which I hope I can pass. Got everything packed (I only have three classes, and only one requires a book) for tomorrow.

Listening to my Likes on Youtube. y'know, I really should get back into the habit of reading/writing KQ5 with the soundtrack from the game playing. It helps me picture the scene better.

Bad: Writer's block SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKS! Chapter 7 in KQ5 was something I was actually looking forward to writing and then, when I got to it, it turned out to be less spectacular than I'd originally concieved in my head and seems kinda... eh. But, I can't think of any ways to make the chapter better, aside from taking out one scene I'd shown to Delling before!

As a workaround, you could put it in a playlist - then you can rearrange it to your heart's content.
Title: Re: The GOOD & BAD THREAD (VI)
Post by: GrahamRocks! on February 26, 2013, 10:29:12 AM
But... I never use playlists...

And, the Nicholas Boland tracks have formed their own Album for some reason. Yet, Amy Kurylo is in her proper place.

I apparently cannot change anything in Get Info on iTunes, as everything is greyed-out.

EDIT: As Chuggaaconroy said in Pikmin 2 MIAAARRRRGGGGHHH!!! Miargh!

WORST. START. TO. MY. DAY. EVER! Okay, I decide to update my iPhone right? But, when it's done, it restores to FACTORY SETTINGS! Not only that (luckily iTunes is still intact on my PC), but when I decide to restore to Itunes backup, it gives an error message (0xE00000A) so I can't do that!

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGH! (I'm a Mighty Pirate[tm]!) I do NOT want to lose everything AGAIN! What do I do? Restore as if it were brand new? No, then I'll have to start over on all I have on there. I don't use the Cloud either, so there is no sense in that.

I shouldn't have done that... I should have just left it alone...

Well, I updated as a "new phone" and my apps are gone (ot that I had all that many, but still...) and I have no music nor contacts anymore. And all my photos are gone too!

With stuff in them! Like everyone else, but better! We still do! Except now they don't open. But now we can cover them in sparkly stuff so you can't tell!! We do the best pavÚ!" instead of doing something new, oh, I don't know, EVERY HUNDRED YEARS), so I have no idea who James Avery is. :S
