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.

<annoyed>Please stop asking me if I'm somebody I'm not. I've never heard of the guy. Really I haven't. If he has the same interests as me that's just coincidence. 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).

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
Gave Resident Evil 6 a spin today, unfortunately.

First 15 minutes are QTEs, Interactive Cutscenes and a bit of combat (kicking is more effective than shooting the zombies. 3 kicks > 6-8 bullets). Leon crashed a helicopter into a train, kept flying it and then crashed it through two buildings. He emerged unscathed.

Why? Resident Evil is not an action mov- Oh wait. That's why. Thanks, Capcom, for making this game more like the movies and not the other way around. Good thing I took my fiance's advice and Redbox'd this game instead of pre-ordering it.

Not so much a vent, but a "Karma, thou art a completely fair biscuit."

Several months ago, get trainwreck drunk.  Friends take care of me.  All is well by the next morning.

Tonight, have a dinner party at my place.  Some people have way too much to drink.  Get to be the one of the (mostly) sober people taking care of the weepy drunks.

Don't complain a bit because I WAS JUST THERE.  *sigh...*

Unrelated: I just denied a player access to a game due to their utter lack of understanding of all things grammar. I then get told off by said player. Not a single punctuation in their rant about how I'm in the wrong. >______________<

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
Look...I appreciate the fact that you think this is a good story that you want to tell.  But if you're going to ask my opinion of your script...and then argue with me over the majority of the points where I said, 'Okay...this is a problem and the people you're trying to sell this script to will have issues with it,' then I can't help but wonder why you wanted my feedback in the first place.

I'm not invested in this story AT ALL.  If they say yes, great.  I'm happy for you.  If they say no, I'm not out anything.  The extent of my personal involvement in this was saying, "Okay...don't bother pitching your idea to this person, he has no say in the matter.  This guy would be a better choice...but if you can get HER to sign off on it, you're set, because the company president isn't going to argue that much with his daughter."  Well, that, and having read through your script.

The problem is, it's like every other show I've seen you do.  It's got the potential to be something really awesome...if you would take some time and polish it a bit.  I realize you want to make a big impression on people and convince them that you can do these awesome shows...you're better off doing a REALLY GOOD small show several times, and working your way up, than you are doing a really slipshod large-scale production where only about half of your stuff works reliably.

But, what do I know?  I've only been working in entertainment for half your lifetime.  What possible insight could I have into how it works?

Re: Player
I work back to back 10 hour shifts, do my best to convince my boss we need MORE people or our state ratios are beyond off.

What happens? I get sent home with 28 hours already to save the OT till later in the week and the rest of the teachers are left with nearly double their load.

What was the point?
