<bongboy> you know, i'd almost forgotten why i've purposely avoided having a girlfriend until the other night when i was at a friend's place and a friend of a friend was being all bitchy and emotional and mentioned a few times that she's having her period, at which point i though, "oh yeah, that's right"

I have to post this somewhere so I can close the window and keep a record. A conversation I started with [livejournal.com profile] turtledove after I had been harrassing him to play Left 4 Dead and between the games he tries to make me play on MSN, he was now playing "Trials 2 Second Edition", whatever that is.

10:30 PM - Avatar [ٿ]: why do you have all the shit games and none of the good ones?
10:30 PM - Turtlator!!!: how do you know what games i have?
10:30 PM - Avatar [ٿ]: I've seen you around

(for those of you not in the know, Steam allows you to see what steam game someone is playing in realtime, if they're playing one)

10:30 PM - Turtlator!!!: pfft, you don't see me playing anything on steam that much
10:31 PM - Avatar [ٿ]: that's a good indicator right there
10:31 PM - Turtlator!!!: what would you know about good games
10:31 PM - Avatar [ٿ]: oh I know everything about good games mr solitaire shodown
10:33 PM - Turtlator!!!: solitaire showdown is one of the best games ever
10:33 PM - Avatar [ٿ]: exactly my point
10:33 PM - Turtlator!!!: just cause you're not that good at it
10:33 PM - Avatar [ٿ]: oh dear

The irony of it was that this morning I checked the list of what steam games he actually has, and apart from Trials 2, he has The Orange Box and the Unreal pack, both of which are well-reknowned great games.

(12:41 PM) Alice: sure sure
(12:41 PM) Avatar: you cheated
(12:41 PM) Alice: you didn't know til i told you
(12:41 PM) Alice: not cheating, its called being informed
(12:41 PM) Avatar: yeah but you cheated to tell me
(12:41 PM) Avatar: you cheater
(12:42 PM) Alice: no, i was informed
(12:42 PM) Alice: and you were uninformed
(12:42 PM) Alice: as usual
(12:42 PM) Avatar: I was informed
(12:42 PM) Alice: only by my informing you
(12:42 PM) Avatar: but you cheated
(12:42 PM) Alice: you were uninformed until informed by an informed person
(12:42 PM) Alice: not cheating, was informing myself!
(12:42 PM) Avatar: I was informed but you cheated so you informed me by cheating
(12:43 PM) Alice: you have only just proceeded to inform me that what i am informed is being informed is in fact cheating
(12:43 PM) Avatar: I am informing you that you informing me by informing yourself is a form of cheating
(12:43 PM) Alice: then you shouldntve cheated and shouldve informed yourself so that i didn't have to inform your uninformed self
(12:44 PM) Alice: you cheated by allowing me to inform you, the uninformed
(12:44 PM) Avatar: I didn't cheat, I was informed by a cheater who informed herself by cheating
(12:44 PM) Alice: when you were quite capable of informing yourself and thus bypassing cheating of any kind. im just informing you of that
(12:44 PM) Avatar: I was informed because you informed and that doesn't really make it cheating it's just informing
(12:45 PM) Alice: right. so i wasnt cheating and you were. just to inform you
(12:45 PM) Avatar: for your information, I wasn't cheating because you were informing me, and you were cheating because you weren't informing yourself, you were cheating
(12:45 PM) Alice: i would like to inform you that i was informed by you that how i was informed was in fact cheating but i am informing you now that me being informed was being informed and am informing you it was not cheating of any kind
(12:46 PM) Alice: anyway i will also inform you that i enjoyed ben getting beaten up
(12:46 PM) Alice: that was cool
(12:47 PM) Alice: oh shutup
(12:47 PM) Alice: lol
(12:47 PM) Avatar: but informing me that you were informed by me that I was informing you that you were cheating was the information I was informing you of as you cheated to be informed by being informed by other sources and therefore cheating your way to inform me of your information and therefore you cheated to inform me and I was informed by you
(12:47 PM) Alice: i would like to inform you that i disagree with the above informed statement
(12:48 PM) Avatar: but it is an informed statement
(12:48 PM) Avatar: that I am informing you of

It's a term we rarely use anymore, usually replaced by "trolling" for the most part, but here's something really interesting I read about flame wars.

"Let me tell you something about flame wars. The undergraduate shit smearing aside, they're serious things and ought to be allowed to continue. They are, consistently, about the most important problems we have. They cost almost nothing in real terms. They are the best street-level forum we have, and if they get violent, well Jesus, they're about important things: of course they're violent. Verbally violent, and in a space where no fistfights, no (or rare) real-life vendettas can break out. What the hell else could you want, for hashing out these things? Examine the serious ones sometime. Look for where they break down, where they get circular, where people get tired and substitute half-remembered propaganda for reality. Look for the people who carry the arguments with consistently strong theses, with real vigor in their thought and understanding.

Forget the insults, the tactlessness, who the hell cares about it, it's not what's important, here. The dialogue. The engagement, the debate, the willingness to engage, and the real argument that drives the threads, that's what's important."

In our game of D&D, creating characters, Ballig is creating his character for Mooncabbage's campaign, but can't comprehend the name Ballig chose for his character - "Tzu":

[Mooncabbage] Tzu?
[Mooncabbage] ur not a bloody munk are you
[Ballig] no
[Mooncabbage] azn?
[Mooncabbage] so you're like
[Mooncabbage] one of them emerald city lads?
[Mooncabbage] from the mysterious east?
[Ballig] no
[Ballig] no
[Mooncabbage] no?
[Ballig] no
[Mooncabbage] why "tzu" then
[Avatar] no.
[Ballig] because it's a good Australian band
[Mooncabbage] that's not a good reason to use it as a character name
[Avatar] lol
[Ballig] sure it is
[Avatar] it's as good a reason as any
[Mooncabbage] not really...
[Mooncabbage] it may infact be the worst reason i've ever heard
[Ballig] I've heard worse reasons
[Avatar] maybe he had a spiritual tie to that name
[Avatar] or he had a calling from god to use the name 'Tzu'
[Ballig] I can come up with a roleplay reason for having an eastern sounding name but not being eastern
[Ballig] if that would appease you
[Ballig] why, OOC, I chose the name means little
[Avatar] I'd use the spiritual tie one
[Mooncabbage] oh i just thought you could be a cleric of like Fharlanghn
[Ballig] maybe he was brought up in one of those native indian-type tribes where they name their children after a sound or animal they see straight after birth
[Ballig] and his father sneezed
[Ballig] so he was called Tzu
[Mooncabbage] bah
[Mooncabbage] why must people pick arbitrary names, instead of taking the effort to properly name their characters
[Avatar] you're the one who came up with Isaac the Pink

Some dude came into #d&d asking what the channel was. Telling people what it means usually provokes the wrong sort of response, so [livejournal.com profile] silne just went straight to the punch, telling him:

[19:16] [silne] desperate and dateless

Then, more hilarity ensued while this guy tried to pick up anyone in the channel (he sounded like he was serious), and Methynutnut was lucky enough to get a pm conversation:

From the GTA: Vice City walkthrough on finishing the Paramedic missions, located here, which also mentions using meditative techniques in an effort to not drive yourself crazy from completing this part of the game:

Above all, let go any hope of finishing the game. This is essential. It is often difficult to discipline yourself not to care about the outcome of your actions, just as it is difficult to ignore the level number as it creeps upwards. But it is only through the calm acceptance of the endlessness of your task that you can ever achieve its end.

This reminds me so much of World of Warcraft.

Later in the walkthrough:

It is worth repeating: let go any hope of finishing the game. Stop looking at the clock. Ignore the level announcements. And don't do this by forcing your eyes away. Do it by actually ceasing to care.

Here's the resignation letter a friend of mine from coles is handing in tomorrow.

Dear Barry,

After an appropriate period of deliberation, I have come to the decision to tender my resignation from Coles Supermarkets, effective 25/11/04.

Please know that I still maintain a high level of respect for you as a manager and colleague, and I thank you sincerely for the support and assistance you have offered me in each of those roles. I have been proud to work for Coles Supermarkets over the past four years; it has been a journey that has provided me an unparalleled foundation to move forward to new and exciting opportunities.

As such, I have decided to become a professional pirate. It has always been a dream of mine to live the life of a swashbuckling corsair, beholden to none and master of all I survey. Once my crew of unabashed rogues is assembled, we shall take to the capacious expanse of the high seas to pursue fortune, fame, and hair-raising adventure.

Our path may not be filled with the porcine comforts and technological marvels that Coles Supermarkets provides, but we shall nonetheless move forward to carve a name for ourselves in the annals of bold insurgency and death-defying derring-do. Once I have a keen blade at my hip and the Jolly Roger is flapping high above me, I believe I will find my true calling.

Please note that I am currently accepting applications for First Officer, if you are at all interested in applying. I will provide a full medical and dental plan, which will offer immediate coverage of all maladies other than scurvy and the occasional bout of rickets.

Forgive me for my bold sedgway into a topic arguably unrelated to computers, but i find myself somehow unable to distinguish between the two brands of what are essentially the same cola-based beverage. Some people argue that coke is rounder, fuller, pepsi sharper. Your thoughts?

What the fuck?

No-one's ever stuck with me for so long before.. and if you leave... if you leave, I just, I remember things better with you... I remember it, I do, it's there, I know it is, because when I look at you, I can feel it, and I look at you and... I'm home.

Please. I don't want that to go away. I don't wanna forget.

I'm sorry. But I do.

Retards. I got it working!

Dear Eidos Customer Service,

I am very sorry to hear that you were not able to help me with my problems with this game. Unfortunately, in the length of time it took for you to respond to my request, I had managed to get it working on my own by reinstalling DirectShow. I hope that in future, you will be able to help out other poor players like myself that asked for your support.

Apology accepted, on the condition above.


Tony Buttafuoco.

I got my bag back today, with most of its contents, minus the more valuable stuff, including my travellers version of the personal journal. It's okay - I'm glad I got the bag and my jacket back.

I had a big fight with Dad and Jimmy about it - this was the first I'd told them about it. They weren't upset that I hadn't told them anything, but they want to look after me to the last straw. They're hardcore sceptics, and they were absolutely certain that the guy who gave back my bag must have stolen it. Dad later added that, no, it was only a possibility (after I kept saying this is only a possibility, and they couldn't know that for sure), but it was 99.9% correct!Read more... )

I wish I knew earlier, because I forgot today was Dad's birthday.

It's been a busy weekend. Hopefully I'll write more tonight. I've had a lot to think about lately.

Woman (on phone, very cheery): Your wedding is going to be so great, it's the best thing for both of you, you really deserve it!
Woman (still cheery): Okay, take care, hey? I'm REALLY happy for you! It's REALLY beautiful! *giggle*
*scan scan*
Woman (very reassuringly): Yeah. You two really deserve each other, he loves you a lot, and he's going to take care of you for the rest of your life! He REALLY loves you!
Woman (still cheery): Okay. All the best, I'll see you at the wedding! It's going to be really beautiful! *giggle* Bye bye.
Me (very monotone): That's $22.85.

It's really not THAT beautiful, darling.
