So sorry Dave, I was a tish tired this morning. I’ll be sure to hang on every word you print from now on. Keep in mind I have poor grammar, math, reading, comprehension and logic skills. It’s tough being on the same thread as the perfect one’s.

Not sure what “tish” means. The dictionary doesn’t seem to have it.

Oops. The apostrophe went in the wrong place. I blame HTML for confusing me. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Cool, see you (Ami and Spear and maybe Brett too) tomorrow!

Thanks all for the kind words regarding my breakup.

In other news, my first batch of caterpillars (12) for the summer have all pupated, and I brought the next batch just before a huge storm hit. O_o …And there’s 31 of them…(32 if you count the inch worm I accidentally picked up when collecting food for them). I am running a goddam black swallowtail nursery. I don’t know how I’m going to keep track of the little buggers…lol

Posting to thank some of the people on this board for encouraging me to seek therapy. It’s kind of like this place was except I’m not getting bashed constantly. I mean it’s not a miracle worker but I like getting sympathy rather than insults.

BUT, there was one thing that I need to share. We found a way to work around my eye! I went down to the eyeglasses store and commissioned some special glasses. I have 20/20 vision in my right eye so the right lens was just clear glass. The left lens is like a mild magnifying glass. It makes my left eye look larger and basically normal when viewed directly. I was really skeptical when I heard about it but it really worked! The glasses also are cool and distract on their own. I should have gotten glasses years ago.

Things still aren’t great but those glasses alone made things 10000000000000000000000X better, and it was the therapist that suggested it. So I’m glad I went.

Also, someone asked about Borderlands last week. It gets really boring really fast, after a cool first 5-6 hours you realize you’re doing the same thing over and over. RENT IT!

Rly? o:

If so, I’m v v v v happy for your MRAL :3 You sound happier alrdy, and I’m glad that the therapist found something to help you w/ your issues re: your eye that’s awesome :3

@MRAL:

Well, as other people have said, therapy isn’t something that works immediately. Its something you keep up with. So stick with it, things will get a lot better eventually.

@MRAL,

Glad to hear it. Honestly I am. 🙂

That’s awesome, Mr. Al. Glad to hear it’s going well.

And yes. Thirding or fourthing the idea that therapy takes time, not everything (or every therapist) works for everyone, and, y’know, it’s a process. Good luck.

I think I’m going to apologize to Hugo Schwyzer. I still think he’s kind of a windbag but I told him to go fuck himself and you’re a pussy bitch dickhead and all that. I guess it wasn’t cool.

And yeah, I guess if you want to finish Borderlands renting isn’t really a viable choice. It’s a long game, it’s just after a while it all starts to feel like the same thing, like Ben Croshaw said, killing Jason Voorhees clones in a scrapyard, then killing a big Jason Voorhees and looting his body. Some might say repetition’s an inherent flaw to the RPG experience, but I loved Oblivion start to finish. All the BioWare products too (except Dragon Age II, fuck that). A well-designed game can avoid those problems.

So are pugs adorable or just ugly little mutants? I ask because I have one trying to periodically chew my toes.

Johnny Pez

@ Elizabeth

I tend toward the first view, my wife toward the second. I’ve found that a steady application of butt scratches tends to immobilize most pugs.

I liked Dragon Age 2. While it did not quite have the depth of Dragon Age Origins, the greater degree of flexibility made it more rewarding on repeat plays than Origins. I have heard that the PC version of DA2 had a lot of technical problems and that the battle system did not work as well for PC gamers, but as a PS3 person, I liked the battle system for DA2 better than the one for DAO. Still, even the console version could have used some technical work. I cut my teeth on Japanese games, and those things are not a fraction as glitchy as American games, but DA2 gets a special award for hilarious glitching (though the autosave was effective enough to make this less of a bother than it can be in some games).

Pecunium – ugh, no kidding. That is something I DO NOT MISS about EPA. And I don’t have any triggers on it – I just find it supremely annoying.

Pecunium

It’s not gunfire. the worst of it was actually the formal fireworks. Mortars sound like mortars, and when I can’t see the shells, it sounds… well it sounds like a not so distant firefight (the various non-official fireworks) with artillery support.

Makes me a bit nervous.

Re: Borderlands:

Steam (store,steampowered.com) is having their awesome biannual sale right now. The sales change from day to day (changing at 9 am PST), and I’ve seen Borderlands up for sale at a discount. If you’re primarily a PC gamer, the Steam sale is definitely worth checking out.

Re: DA2

Omg, I was so pissed! I was one of the people who had to wait for the patch because there was a savegame issue right out of the fucking gate for my computer. It sucked so hard. But having played both DA:O and DA2 on the PC, I have to say I really liked DA:O better. They’re both good games, but I liked the epic feel of DA:O more than I like the ‘refugee becomes awesome’ part of DA2. That being said, I really think the Dragon Age setting is really awesome, and I’d probably play any game set in Thedas (up to and including the tabletop game).

Kk, back from Pride and meeting up w/ Spearhafoc and Kristin, Mistress of Hounds :3 Was fun! Pride was a little boring tho : I showed them my sekrit spot for watching Pride (a bottleneck where the marchers and floats turn out of the park where they organize.. not a lot of ppl are there , there’s steps to stand up on and everything stops there waiting… xD I knew it from being in Pride before xD ) but we were kinda watching the 2nd half of it and the floats were v corporate and watered down so : But we had fun! (or *I* had fun neways xD) and some guy on a bike called us freaks xD Which is weird cuz we were dressed v normally xD and I didn’t have wings on or nething! xD

Neways, I will put up pix when I dun feel so tired xD

I also found out bad news : I saw the guy I liked w/ a guy : (w/ w/) so,.. blah 🙁 darn!

oh well xD That’s my luck… go figure >_>;; It does explain a few things tho (he mentioned having a g/f in the past, so I mean that he’s taken, not gay xD)

I feel disappointed and kinda ridic now, having put myself out there.. he prolly thought I was annoying :

rawr!

On the other hand, it was a fun day w/ Kristin and Spearhafoc :] and me and Spear hung out after b/c Kristin was tired and had to leave : but I had a lot of fun hanging out w/ Spear.. he is v cool :3 (so is Kristin! 😀 )

that is all

Fresh from a love-in with 5 of my favorite people, a BBQ, and a Game of Thrones marathon, I’d like to use the last half hour of the weekend to say that Peter Dinklage is fucking hot. That is all.

“and some guy on a bike called us freaks xD”

He probably could tell you were from manboobz …

It sounds lots of fun! I’m sorry about the guy. It might not be what it looked like! Or, y’know, it might be, but someone absolutely perfect for you will come along, Ami. You’re the best. You deserve the best.

Johnny Pez

You’re the best. You deserve the best.

True. Unfortunately, I’m already married.

Bee

Man, Johnny Pez. Did I just hear the sound of a million manboobz hearts breaking?

No, never mind. Feminists don’t have hearts. My mistake!

Now I’m trying to think of whether Peter Dinklage or a small talking dog is the better match. Decisions, decisions!

Johnny Pez
9 years ago

It’s a cold, hard world, Bee.

And you’d probably have better luck keeping Dinklage off the furniture.

Johnny being married warms the cockles of my shriveled (and evil) heart. If he’s married I have more of a chance.

@MRAL: I am really happy for you! That’s fantastic! I hope things keep getting better for you! =D

Just for the record, I want it established that *I* am clearly the best match for Ami. I mean, I, uh, am really cool! And would valiantly fight trolls for her! And… um… I’m not married or getting married! I mean, Pecunium did just get engaged! He is probably too busy to take proper care of our feminist leader.

Ami Angelwings

I… don’t remember writing that last night xD

I was SOOO out of it… this is one of those days where I desperately try to remember everywhere I posted something last night and make sure I didn’t say something terrible xD

Pecunium

I didn’t mean with any one person.

Sarah: I’ve been engaged since November.
