Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread

<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.

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!!!!

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
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.

I was *going* to post on the warm and fuzzy thread about how Sunday's second date might finally be the one to break the Second Date Curse, and how I was looking forward to a third this weekend.

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.

When you started this it was kinda funny. Now I'm starting to get paranoid that I have some mad stalking doppleganger following me!</annoyed>

Trying to get back in to rping put in a character I had created for a game type for a game that never made it off the ground thinking I found her a home only to wind up in what feels like a job interview with to co gms who Im hearing info about from others about they try to kill you if you dont get along with their characters.  Also having to prove myself to a person that is a cogm with no experience in the setting and getting told by him that I have to get along to a certain level and not cause problems or my character will be killed. with no reason explanation ect.  and then being asked how i view this that and 17 other pointless things when told they wanted to pick my brain I really get the sinking filling of getting grilled down trussed up an paraded for there amusement!!!!

On the other hand HI!!!! and I find myself going why am I comin back to this?

When you seriously think someone is trying to get in through our apartment door after a robbery nearby last week...

...don't keep shouting in my ear over and over that its scary! I'm trying to figure out what is going on! If it is an attack I need my attention on the fight not you! The moment my head is turned to look at you could be the moment a knife is stuck into me.

I could use focus if I am about to fight for the lives our family. Thank you very much!

All turned out okay. Person coming to help people move in down the hall got the number mixed up. All calmed down and joked about it later.

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
And, just like that, half the games I was playing in have folded up in the space of about two weeks.  I'm debating whether or not to replace them, as the ones that I'm still in aren't currently all that busy, either...but, really, I'm better off with fewer distractions.

Still...the timing sucks.  Having them all close out so close to each other...well, it's kinda depressing.  Time to learn to redirect that time and energy into other, more productive pursuits, I guess.

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
Our Coaches are being idiots. In the B-team game, they're suppost to get as many people in, but I only got 4 plays, while a guy who just joined, we're halfway done, and got pads YESTERDAY, who isn't that great, and is only first year, got to play the whole game! Also, in practice, when I face off against the Starting Tight End for A-team, I regularly beat him, but no changes occur. The only way he even slowed me was by grabbing my arm after I got past him, and punching me in the back, right where the pads aren't. In fact, there are a bunch of B-team players who are much better than A-team, but no changes. In practice, the B-team was even beating the A-team, yet how many changes? That's right, none!

"You looked a bit stunned when I told you what I pulled you over for"
Well, yeah! You pulled me over for not stopping at a stop sign before I turned right, when I did. Even your little cam shows my rear bumpear going up, indicating my stop. Then you proceed to argue for it even after I explained that you probably thought you saw me roll through it an I was not going to argue with you there (The place to argue is court).
