Re: Time marches on...
I really, really hate when she does this.

I'm in a decent mood, all ready to come home for Thanksgiving later tonight.  I call home to make sure that my ride is on its way.  My mom keeps hemming and hawwing about something- it turns out that she'd been allowing one of my pet cats out in the garage, among the old boxes, bins, and old bottles of chemicals that we have for some *fruiting* reason.  I kept telling her not to do it, but apparently she kept on doing it.

Two weeks ago, something happened out there to my little Spider- he got bit by something, he got poisoned, or something- I don't know what- but he apparently went downhill so rapidly that he died a week ago today.  He was acting erratically near the end, so I suspect he ended up knocking over a bottle of chemical and poisoned himself.

To say that I am unhappy with my mother right now is an understatement.  I was looking forward to seeing all three of my kitties, and now I will only see two.  I told her for months not to let my cats out into the garage, and this happens.  There will be a fight tonight, and it will not be pretty.

Re: Time marches on...
Grah!
I have a deadline for assignment tomorrow, my laptop just decided to throw all last weeks work out the window because it couldn't agree with dropbox for where to store it and has just spent my last five hours booting and rebooting, cancelling updates and wasting my time.
NOTHING I hate more than being forced to wait when I'm in a hurry.
So much for sleep tonight.

Grrr... Black Friday Vouchers
Greedy fruiting bastiches who get in line early so they can grab a voucher for every single door buster... and then walk through the line offering to sell the vouchers to other people or brag about how they don't want the item and are just going to sell it on Craigslist!!!  Some of us can't afford to pay full price for this stuff, and you're being a major jack hole.

Used to be if you wanted multiple items you had to either bring people to help you or prioritize what you want. Either way, it gave other people a fair chance to get something for themselves.

I actually had someone try to sell me a voucher for an $88 tv for $50! That would make the tv full price. Jerk.

You Lose... Thanks Immorality...
Idiot: Hello Zephydel...

Zephydel: Hello there...

Idiot: I need a moment of your time...

Zephydel: Let me finish my game first. If I win this battle I can increase my rank and get this rare item.

Idiot: (Shakes Zephydel) I need to talk to you now!

Zephydel: Hey! Cut it out! Oh crap!

Game: You Lose! Rank Down!

Zephydel: Great! There goes my one-week winning streak... There goes my rare item...

Idiot: Now will you listen?

Zephydel: Fine... What is it? (Drinks coffee)

Idiot: I am going to start dating her... I do not care if she is underage... I do not care if she is my first cousin...

Zephydel: (Almost chokes on his coffee) What the hell?! You ruined my winning streak just to tell me that?

Idiot: This is more important than your winning streak...

Zephydel: Yes... It is serious... I should start calling the cops...

Shattered Dreams
*sigh* There comes a time in every man's life when he sets out on fulfilling a dream and then finds out that someone with more money, experience, and help already beat him to it.

*sigh* I just discovered Monte Cook is writing (and almost finished with) a system that seems on the surface incredibly similar to the core design of a system I was writing on my own. I mean, I still have unique elements and his setting is sci-fi fantasy while mine is just sci-fi (which is both a good and bad thing for me). *sigh* However, it's close enough though for people to look at mine and go "Oh this is just a cyberpunk, less smooth version of Monte's thing with a few more options and a larger scale and less of a sense of wonder built into the setting."

*sigh*

Monte, y u be better at your job than me?

Re: Shattered Dreams
So...apparently, somebody, last night, decided to have a little target practice...I'm spending the weekend at a friend's place.  We were watching something on Netflix (well, THEY were watching...I was editing some music on my laptop for another project we're working on) when there was a loud THUD outside.  At first we thought someone had driven past the house and thrown something, but there was nothing near the house that was out of order...

So, they started looking a little further.  My car, parked just off the street in front of their place, had a trash can wedged in under its bumper, and one of the passenger-side windows was shattered.  We thought, initially, that it was the neighbor's trash can...called the cops, they came out and took some pictures and so on...but the neighbor called just a little while ago, to ask about the mysterious trash can that had materialized in front of their place (after the cops were done, we put the can back where we thought it came from).

So, now it's looking like somebody GRABBED a trash can down the road, drove down the street at high speed, and threw it at my car...what a lovely holiday surprise, huh?

Re:
So I had to change a lightbulb today. Easy task, yes? Not in this house.

Whoever lived here before us bought and used some really cheap incandescent bulbs. So cheap, that when the time came to change these bulbs the metal thread at the base of the bulb came detached from the bulb. While still in the socket.

Well, I had managed to slowly work one out before, and so when this one did the same thing today I thought it wouldn't be a big deal.

Except for one thing. No matter how hard I tried, the stupid thing wouldn't turn. At all. And in my attempts to get this stupid, broken half of a lightbulb out of the socket so I could put a new one in, the entire socket cracked in half. Good news is the thread fell out. Bad news is it will never be able to be used again, as no lightbulb will fit in the ruined socket. Not that putting one in there would do anything but start an electrical fire.

And this the day after the vacuum cleaner broke down so that it would only run for rought 15 seconds at a time, while putting out next to no suction. Among all the other things in and about this house that are broken, breaking, or otherwise useless. And the vermin problem. I HATE this house. And I doubt any sane person would consider buying it from us so we can move to a house that functions as a house.

Re:
It's a bit of a minor thing, but what in the name of heaven possessed youtube to change their interface to emulate the appearance of Windows 8's windows interfaces when nobody likes Windows 8?

I mean heck they even emulated the needing two clicks to get to the main function of the thing. Literally I have to click two things from youtube.com just to get to what used to be on the main page from just plain going to the site.

I changed my bookmark to go to the subpage so now my "main page" works the same as the old sensible version! Yay! Only it's twice as bland and ugly looking and doesn't work with my screen resolution properly, placing everything crammed to the left! WOO!

weeeeeellllll....after plugging my truck in all night and flicking it on at 8am like I am supposed to (for a 3 hour charge..over night can fry the battery) I go to start my truck...'click cik click cik', fruitin' battery is dead.  okay, figgure maybe just a few more hours plugged in would do it.  try again 'clickity click clik-click'.  DEAD BATTERY!!!! again!!! it did this on Thanksgiving too.  finally got my brother-in-law to come over and jump my battery.  now its 4:15.  I have 45 minutes to be in 4 places.  I made 3.  so I made an alternate shop stop.  I went to the battery place and they checked my battery and alternator for free.  alternator was good...battery was holding less than half a charge.  shucked out about 100 bucks and had them put a new one in.  I'll see how it is doing tomorrow if it kicks over or I take a cab at 5am to work.

Re: In to the Ice Age we go!!!!
Man.  I just...ugh.

Partylite orders from a party I hosted finally arrived yesterday.  UPS left it at the door at 1:45.  I get a call from my roommate at 4:45 saying she just spoke to a cop who found the empty box in an alley.  Fruiting holiday thieves.

Friend is having a birthday party down at the local arcade tonight.  Get excited to go and blow off some steam and hang out with fun people.  Remember just as I'm getting ready to go that I have an early blood donation appointment in the morning, which means no drinking, and I have to go to bed early.  Stupid obligations and being responsible.  *grump*

Very beginning of a high level new D&D3.5 game on this site.
I roll Sense Motive for a few things to discern info about the shifty folks int he kings court (With a +32 bonus)

THREE OUT OF FOUR ROLLS: CRITICAL FAILURE

This is why I loathe an 'always fail' result on a one. It's just bad design. I also hjate when I'm basically forced to go incompetent at what I'm supposed to be good at.. especially starting an adventure off. Nothing ruins an image of a character for me so much as abject failure out of the gate. You should get a chance to be awesome and come to grips with your abilities before you start failing this badly.

Re: NON POSTING FRUITING PLAYERS
How about the poor slob that takes over games so they won't die, because the players are SO fruiting interested in playing/posting. The game(s) is defined as "player-driven" group storytelling with no-to-light mechanics. Pages of flavor-text for locations and situations to get all of the players characters "on the same page", because they are SOOOO INTERESTED...

week 1 - crickets

week 2 - more crickets

week 3 - cricket descendants

week 4 - grasshoppers who unearth the remains of a once-great cricket civilzation

week 5 - SPLAT! nobody, not even crickets returning messages or rmails, couldn't purge/delete the game, but I could delete EVERY post in it and turn off the 'looking for players' tag

week 6 - see preamble to week 1 with a different game

MERRY FRUITING CHRISTMAS

you gotta be pretty FRUITING LAZY to not at least post "I'm leaving or IRL issues havwe forced me away"... disrespectful, entitlement minded, instant gratification seeking, intellectually stunted PLAYERS are why games die, NOT the GMs!

Re: Home FRUTING Depot

To the Home Depot employee working the Christmas deco departement,

Thank you for laughing in my face when I asked a perfectly legitimate question about your Christmas Lights inventory and thank you for continuing to laugh loudly with your co-workers after I walked away into another aisle. Also, let's not forget your hilarious joke to my dad when you looked him in the eye and told him that a box of musical LED lights cost $50 when it really cost $15. Thanks a bunch, you really know how to spread the holiday cheer.

Sincerly,
Me.

P.S.: YOU'RE A FRUTING RASPBERRY AND I HOPE YOU GET FIRED.

I HATE PEOPLE. ARRGH!!!

Re: VENTS!!!
fruiting 'freeform' games with players that have supposedly 'heroic' characters that act more despicable than the villains, deny it as 'cultural/moral relativism', then get pineappled when confronted by any semblance of law enforcement.

Same immature players (not by age, unless LYING) like to 'dino-hide' when attacked, I have to blame absentee GMs for allowing such god-modding in a 'no god-modding' game... WHY have the rule, if you won't enforce it???

gaaaraaarghhhh, it has made me incoherent

while I'm at it, how about an 'adult' game that DOESN'T turn into a smut-fest???

Re: VENTS!!!
*seething anger*

Ugh... I hate having to be the go-between between an argumentative person, and overly-sensitive one. It's one thing when you want to discuss Sensitive Topics and  everyone in the room says '; no thank you', then you storm out. It's another entirely to thin go and complain to the world on your publicTumblr about us and post a three page rant about how people who don't like to debate sensitive topics are being 'irresponsible'.
