- Listening to KQ6 music
- Looking up synonyms for reality.
- Considering retitling my story I'm writing. Having trouble thinking of one. It's about the Sierra characters meeting their creators. All I have so far is Sir Graham meeting Roberta and Ken, with Roberta saving his life and serving as his narrator, then the next chapter skips ahead to the endgame of KQ1 and I'm gonna have Graham somehow end up in Oakhurst, 1984. I know the chapter after that entails KQ2 and then meeting Roger Wilco for the first time, who crashes into Daventry's moat and is rescued by Graham and then Roger tells how he got here, setting up the next chapter presumedly. And it just keeps going, introducing all the Sierra protagonists as they come along. The second to last chapter I have planned is chainsaw Monday, and the last i have in my head is Katie and Cezar talking to King Graham (who has been wanting to go on an another adventure for awhile now) about TSL. my current title I have "Welcome to Sierra" but I want to change it to something else, hence why I'm looking up synonyms for words. My chapter titles so far are: "The Knight" and "The Half Dome". Thinking about posting it on Fanfiction.Net.

Just posted my latest story on FF.Net! It used to be called "Welcome to Sierra" but now is called "Meet Your Maker!"

I'm in the process of making a playlist of some calm music (includes KQ music but also some other games) for my insomniac mother so she can listen to it while she's in bed and fall asleep easier.

Being disgusted with someone on Facebook. Seriously thinking about defriending this person.

I'll give Lamb and Numbers this, at least you don't insult me. We bicker, but at least you aren't trying to turn me against a friend of mine.

Yeah, I don't insult you. I'm a condescending snob, sure, but I save insults for those who truly deserve them.

Also, Lamb has returned to this forum?!

Presently, I am wondering at what time the term "pen pal" became synonymous with the word "friend" and devoting consideration as to how the word "friend has been completely devalued by cyberspace.    "Friend" has no meaning if you can "defriend" on a whim.
Everyone looks into a mirror through the curvature of self-justification.  Pride is a FuNHoUsE distortion.

Are you one with the wind and sky, Waltzdancing?  ;)

-I defriended that person last night and left the group they were in. I think I made the right decision.

- Listening to GK1 music.

Allow me to discourage the continuous overplaying of Frozen songs...through the power of a Frozen song!

Haha! I like watching that guy sometimes, however, that song has gotten me out of many troubles lately, some which I thought were the worse I had faced. :)

Besides that, Doug Walker (the actor who is NC) has said that he actually loves the song and doesn't mind it at all.

Yeah, it's meant to be funny, even if it sounds a little harsh. Doug does have a point about how quickly some songs can be overplayed, though. (I loved his reference to "Everything is Awesome," which also got way too popular for its own good.)

That can be said for a lot of once-great-now-irritating songs, though. I sort of liked "Somebody That I Used to Know" the first time I heard it. Not so much after the millionth time. Same goes for "Rolling in the Deep," which again, I liked at first, and "Gangnam Style," "My Heart Will Go On," and "Baby," none of which I liked even the first time I heard them, but still somehow became massive hits, to the point that not even the most die-hard fans can stand to hear them anymore.

Huh. I thought we had a nodding icon somewhere?

Well, I agree Numbers. ESPECIALLY when it's an earworm!

Yeah, I hated that scene from Wrath of Khan too!

Oh wait, you're talking about the earworm trope. Uh...never mind, then.

:yes:
