rpol pet peeve... and other crap
when I look through the 'rules' of a game that seems like it might not suck and see that the GM can't follow HALF of them just in the group zero threads...

<eye roll>

oh, and Lance Armstrong, STFU already, NOBODY cares.

and to all you idiots out there making 80's big hair band refs: NOBODY loves the 80's, nobody.

overly sensitive people enforcing moronic policies like suspending 6-yr-olds for playing cops&robbers with finger-guns... I want my tax $$$ back

Today I was woken up by a guy with a summons. Fun. Then I fell in the bathtub. Then my car stalled out while I was trying to get to an appointment to meet with people to deal with the summons.

I hate you, January. I hate you and wish you would die.

Well, thanks to my PS3 I have recently found out I can't access the chat on here. Thank you so freaking much Sony network, you suck!

Other stuff
Today is one of those days when I'd like to vent, but for a whole slew of reasons I shouldn't (at least, about what I want to). My RL and online personas are somewhat linked at this point, so I've got to watch it.

Suffice to say, life has had its ups and downs and some situations seem at times like they don't have any answers. Maybe they do, but not necessarily answers I want to see.

Re: Other stuff
I dropped a brick on my toe.  Three weeks after it happened and constant throbbing surpassing the useless medication I'd been given to handle the pain I checked myself back into the hospital, and they finally decided to do an x-ray to see whatís up.  The good news is it's not broken the not so good news is itís pulverized.

My fingers were numb from the cold, but I figured they would warm right up in the hot dish water. All but one did, and that one remained a pasty white.
At least it doesn't hurt.

Me: Hey. What's your character look like?
P1: It's all there in the bio.
Me: Yeah, you keep saying his eyes are purple but in the bio one's blue and one's green. Did he change them right now? Was my character supposed to notice?
P1: Oh yeah. Sorry. That's an old bio. They're purple.
Me: Cool.


Me: Hey. What's your character look like? I can't tell if she's tall or short.
P2: Just like the pic.
Me: Okay, so long blue hair, pale skin, green eyes. Got it. My character's XX tall. Is yours taller or shorter?
P2: Blue hair? No, she's got short blonde hair with black streaks and she's perfectly tan.
Me: So... not like the pic?
P2: No! Just like the pic but with short blonde hair with black streaks. And blue eyes. And a tan. But without the elf ears. She's got the same shape face. And a little tall.


Me: Hey. What's your character look like? There's no bio or pics.
P3: You're not talking to my main PC. You're talking to my main PC's girlfriend.
Me: Sorry for that. What's she look like?
P3: A Native American.


My head hurts.

Come on, lady.  If you are a "professional fundraiser," you should at least get the name of the organization you are representing correct.  It is "National Rifle Association" -- not "Rifles".

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
Yes, it is official, my boss is trying to discredit me, belittle my work, and get rid of me, or at least make it socially/politically acceptable to promote a person with 1/10 my experience, 1/2 my education, but -  who also has 10x the kiss-bosses-posterior skills. And I thought it was just a coincidence that I was being given the dirtiest jobs around while the little darling did some light filing and talk about her new shoes.

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
You know that I have a really bad habit of beating myself up when I feel guilty or ashamed of things that I've forgotten about.  That doesn't entitle you to drop a guilt trip on me whenever you want to come up and spend time with me, or if you want to bully me out of playing what I want to at the local convention just because you can't bear to see me doing something without you if we're in the same three-mile radius.  I'm really fruiting sick of you doing this.  No, I'm not interested in steampunk. No, I'm not interested in live-action mafia, I play plenty of it online. I am going to plunk my rear down for seven straight slots of Pathfinder and to see if I can't reconnect with my old Society group, and if you don't like that, well, too fruitcup bad.  Go do your live-action stuff and try not to drool over the women in corsets...

This will likely be the only chance I have in the entire year for me to play Pathfinder. I'm not going to agree to play the same stupid game demos with you just so you can show me off, that you can prove to the rest of your friends that you bagged a "gamer girl" and then hint that I'm planning on dressing up as Ivy from Soul Calibur for Halloween if you get me drunk enough.

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
How many times do I have to tell you people where we were going on the dang ship! The Carribean, people.... And are all of you really incapable of creating some of the story yourselves? Really? If I'm going to come up with every single little detail in the whole game, why the heck do I need players in it? I'd rather just write a darn book! Good lords above, what happened to the imagination in people today? What happened to paying attention and knowing what the heck is going on around you? Telling everyone the same exact thing within a one hour period of time should not have to be explained again!

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
Missed my friend's stand-up comedy show last night.  For some inexplicable reason, management at the club decided they were only going to have him do one show, instead of the normal two (one show a night during the summer makes sense, the crowds are pretty much always smaller then...but during the winter?  ESPECIALLY after the holidays, when people don't have fifteen or twenty other places to be?  C'mon...)

As a result, when I got there twenty-five minutes before showtime (they normally start seating half an hour before), they were just starting to announce that they'd sold out for the night.  Twenty minute drive there, just to turn around and drive back home.  Thanks, guys...

Flu season is raging like a wildfire around here and I'm up to my knees in snot and sick people.  Flu shots are widely available for the first time in years and no one seems to get them.  Why don't the people MOST AT RISK GET THEIR POMEGRANATE vaccines?

If I don't answer my phone the first time, what makes you think I will answer the next three consecutive calls?! YOU are a grown woman and you can figure out how to manage a class yourself, thank you very much! I am not your little pamphlet on how to score good with the Nursing profs. Ya annoying creampuff.

What are the known outstanding issues we should be aware of?
->The new server will introduce new issues; this is all we know at this point.

Got to love working with an outside client. Mind you we are suppose to release the software application tomorrow and received this nifty note yesterday. Joy.

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
Really cool game concept in GPIA. Express interest, but don't hear anything. Go back a couple weeks later to find that the GM created a game (but forgot to tell me)! Game is still accepting players! Huzzah! Create RTJ, read SRD, get really excited about new game, then nothing. Then nothing. Then why does my main page look different? Oh, because the game was deleted :-/
