People that question and argue about stupid things online that won't get changed just to try to make themselves feel smart or righteous or like they're fighting "the man". Seriously, people, just shut up! (Not directed at the people in this thread)

<vent>Being stuck in an emotional tug-of-war between doing what is right and safe by my son and family vs my elderly grandmother who is visiting from out of province and has a bone broken in her hand and a cast on.  I just want to do right by everyone but the physical and emotional damage to everyone is starting to take its toll.</vent>

Someone stole my phone at Kumoricon.  That phone had all of my con photos from Kumoricon and Sakuracon, as well as several other photos, that I had not yet transferred to my computer.

What kind of rotten blueberry steals a phone from someone who offers to share their charger, gives them food, and states that everyone at the con is like family seconds before they steal it once the person turns their back for a brief moment?!

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
Ugh...Spend a week not eating at the employee cafeteria at work, and my body apparently loses the ability to process the food they serve in there without tying itself in knots.  I'd worry that it was something else, except that this has a distressing tendency to happen.  Convenient, at the time I need to eat...

But oh-so-inconvenient when I start looking at what I'm getting for the money (terribly unhealthy stuff), and when I get my paycheck and realize just how much I actually spend when I don't have to take cash out of my pocket to pay for meals (they just deduct it from your paycheck...)

And massively inconvenient when I've let my body get used to digesting something vaguely resembling GOOD food and then go back to the greasy masses of indigestion they laughably refer to as 'food'.  Somebody pass me an antacid, please...

Accidentally aspirated tea last night.

Most people accidentally inhale a liquid, and they cough and splutter a bit and are fine in 10 minutes.

Not so with me. I'm asthmatic, so of course it triggered a flare (breaking my wonderful 6 month no flare streak - best streak I've had in 6 years and didn't want to ruin it) and thus my training and activities are messed up for the next however-long-it-takes-me-to-recover.

Rawrg. Can I have normal lungs, please?

My first game was a day or so from starting, waiting on two character sheets. What happens!? The two players I am waiting on drop out. Now I have to wait to bump the advert to fill the void. Next time I am filling the team up with a few extra players. Oh well, better than them dropping mid-campaign during serious events.

<vent>Having my 79 year old grandma staying with my husband and I our small apartment with her dog for 3 weeks, while my 2 year old son continues to show no fear of the dog when he should.  Being the one person that everyone goes to for …everything (jars do not open themselves even if I'm changing a diaper), to include venting their frustrations and anger.  My sanity is slowly slipping away along with my tolerance to keep my own feelings in check.</vent>

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
Guys, really...are you EVER going to do anything with the script?  I mean, actually, honest-to-goodness, "Let's cast this thing and start shooting the movie" stuff?  Because it's been five years since you asked me to design costumes, and almost that long since you invited me to help with the re-writes...and it's been almost two years since I heard anything about it, other than, "We're still revising the story..."

I think we had the story in a pretty good place, actually, if the rest of the writing team could decide whether they were writing a comedy or an action/drama (because your secondary character, amusing as he was, was NOT helping the plot with his highly-contrived-vocabulary-as-character-distinction-tactics.)

And if you're NOT going to shoot this thing, then I'd like my reward for helping fix some of your biggest plot flaws (like trying to do this in the same flavor as the 'Scary Movie' and 'Not Another Teen Movie' franchises) to be permission to do a novelization.  Yeah, I realize that you might come back to it and you don't want a novel out there to dictate what you're going to do with your story...but I don't think you realize that you're gutting your story.

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
Random person : "Hey, can I join your game?"

Empty rtj, just an interest in the game.

Random person : "Oh, you roll dice? I prefer point buy, you should do point buy."

Now I'm annoyed, but I see there is a reply.

Random person : "Random bonus tables? Can't I just pick what I want? Dice are lame."

RAGEFACE. Optimizers bother me, just play the game. I know flaws are scary, but that's half the fun of roleplaying. If you want the perfect character, mod/dev console a PC game and make your guy perfect. Perfection is boring.

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
My dryer is no long drying clothes. What's worse, we like to run the dryer overnight so the damp clothes just sit in there and get all moldy smelling.

This has happened often enough and the dryer is becoming unreliable enough that now the whole dryer just smells musty, whether there are musty clothes in it or not.


To add a dose of dark humor to it, I suspect the problem may lie in the dryer vent :D

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
I HATE it when I'm trying to change lanes while driving and I respectfully put on my blinker. This apparently sends an insane message to the person driving behind me in the lane next to me to immediately push the gas pedal to the floor and race me just so I won't pull in front of him.

I want to drive them off the road and punch them repeatedly in the face for not being respectful and more over choosing a pointless and dangerous option as opposed to slow down for 1 second and let me over.

Those people who drive like that should be shot in both kneecaps for making the roads more stressful and more dangerous. BE RESPECTFUL AND LET PEOPLE CHANGE LANES IN @!%*!@$^& PEACE!!!!

I normally don't celebrate my birthday, though I am not opposed to it. So it came as a pleasant surprise when some of my new-found friend wanted to do something to celebrate it. Thus plans were made to do things on my birthday.

The day of the event(today) rolls around and no one can be contacted, and nothing is heard from them. Feeling more than a little frustrated over it all.

But since I'm posting on the vent thread instead...

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
Square Enix is being very mean to it's fans. First it releases FFXIII multi-platform, so we're all thinking, "hey, they're finally going multiplatform." Which made me SO happy, seeing as I'm a huge Kingdom Hearts fan who went to the 360 'cause I liked the Halo games, and at the time the PS3 was a bit much, but now they're pulling the one-platform again, with KH 1.5 and even pulling FF versus from the first info release of PS3 and 360, which I was elated, as it used my favorite KH command menu, but then... they did it... as I said, both, PS3 only. I understand earlier in consoles, but REALLY?! I think that KH should come to the 360, and kinda as trade, mabey PS3 gets a few 360 games that were exclusives. Let them try out Halo, and we get to try out Uncharted, cross more games, and overall make gameing more fun, all this exclusives, telling me I have to have a PS3 to play the new console releases of my favorite sieries? That's just mean! What I really fear, if if KH3 is PS3 only... *shudders* I am NOT wanting to have to save up to get a whole new system just to finish out a sieries I've faithfully followed for many, many years.

Can I have my other dental hygienist back, please?  She worked on me several times and never had a stream of my own drool running down my cheek.  She noticed when I flinched as she was working and took more care with those areas of my mouth that were more tender.  And she was faster.

I definitely consider this one a downgrade.  She's competent...but the other one was GOOD.

First off, I've been stuck away from here for an extended period of time (going on three years now). Very frustrating. And I find that all games I had are gone. I suppose I can't really be shocked, but I had so much material in just those few games -.-

Second, I'm tired of nineteen hour work days Monday through Friday! I can't enjoy a weekend anymore because I have to spend the entirety of it sleeping to recover from the week! *sigh*

To learn that my better half hates the job situation as much as I do, as both of our jobs are ruining our mental and physical health.  And to fear that we can't ever afford to retire - that we will have to work ourselves to death just to have a very basic existence - where even the purchase of a fast-food meal is weighed carefully for its affordability in our budget.   Yet all these government agencies are handing out free rent, free medical care, free food, free cell phones, free education, free assistance for SO many things...but we do not qualify.
