YAY MORE "FRIEND" DRAMA

JUST WHAT I ALWAYS WANTED

That Feel™

Yep.

Long story short, there's a player on our NWN server who Scint, Ebon, and I used to play alongside very regularly. Over the past eight months he's turned into a bit of a drama whore, and every time we seem to be inching toward some manner of resolution, something happens and he goes careening back into guilt tripping and blame-gaming.

Frankly, I've grown exceedingly exhausted dealing with it. And when one of the biggest complaints is "you avoid me"... it makes me want to respond, "hell yes I avoid you sometimes, because you're a black hole of drama, martyrdom, and self-pity".

But then... the drama started.

I got a job as a stripper, once.

Turned out it was stripping paint :-(

You too, eh?

He's almost always late and 8 minutes after his expected time is actually early for him, is what I took it as.

Orthos got it :-)

In fairness tho my expected crime is more of a guideline as I have to wait to go to work until my wife gets home and I've been very upfront about that since interview 1 :-)

Also when you close they're happy you come in at all :-)

I've developed a reputation as a total stiff due to my habit of showing up to the job site ~10 minutes early every day. Apprentices usually show up exactly on time, foremen about 5 minutes late, and journeymen around 15 minutes late.

For some reason, one of those things doesn't seem to fit.

The nuns?

They were awesome!

NSFW joke (again):
Sister Immaculata and the Mother Superior were sitting at a traffic light in their car when a bunch of rowdy drunks pull up alongside. "Hey! Let's see your t**s, you stuck up penguins! shouts one of the drunks. The Mother Superor turns to Sister Immuaculata and says, "I don't think they know who we are. Show them your cross." So Sister Immaculata rolls down her window and shouts, "F*** off you little s***s, before I come over there and rip your d***s off!" Sister Immaculata looks back at the Mother Superior and asks, "Was that cross enough?"

Yesterday, my uncle posted on FB about he, my grandmother, and my cousin going to the Bellvale Creamery in Bellvale, NY. I must have read the post five times before I realized he hadn't written "Cemetery."

I think I've finally convinced "Veronica" that, while she's a nice girl, she's not my type or my speed (going out to the bar at midnight on a Wednesday is fine if you're in grad school, but not a good idea if you have to wake up at 5:30 AM and go to work on a construction site). Got set up on something approximating a blind date tonight with cute hipster chick "Betty" by a mutual friend. She seems cool--pretty low-key, a few years older than me (a first), and a big fan of Jawbreaker. Cautiously optimistic. Cautiously.

Little-known fact: little Johnny grew up to be Hunter S. Thompson. The "S." stands for "Johnny."

Today's best moment of Zen from one of the foremen at the job site:

NSFW:
Little Johnny wanted to be a carpenter. A house was being built across the street and he asked his mother if he could go watch the carpenters work. His mom agreed and said to him, "Maybe you will learn something." So Johnny sat on a bucket and watched the guys work. After they finished for the day, Johnny went home. His mother asked, "Well, Johnny, did you learn anything today?"

"Yeah, a lot," said little Johnny. "Tell me about it, what did you learn?" said Johnny's mother.

"Well, it's not easy to put up a door," said Johnny, "You try to put the m*****f***** up, but that s*** doesn't fit, so you take it down and shave a c*** hair off each side. Then you put that c***s****** b**** back up."

Johnny's mother, in shock, exclaimed angrily, "Johnny! That's terrible! Just wait until your father gets home!"

A few hours later, Johnny's father came home and asked little Johnny how his day went with the carpenters.

"Like I told Mom, it's not easy to put up a door," said Johnny, "You try to put the m*****f***** up, but that s*** doesn't fit, so you take it down and shave a c*** hair off each side. Then you put that c***s****** b**** back up."

His father became very angry, and said to the boy, "Johnny! Go out back and fetch me a switch!"

To which Johnny replied, "F*** you, that's the electrician's job."

EDIT: also it turns out that bleeding out a pig for slaughter takes about an hour and a half, so I'm going to be generous and call that two hours. The actual butchering process seems like it should go fairly quick if you're good at it as I imagine my 6th century Danes would be, so I'll give that half an hour to an hour.

I had a vegan on the street call me a "bloodmouth" once. I said, "right on, bro, cool nickname," and kept on walking.

Went to go see a my friends' band play in Ithaca last night. Unfortunately, I neglected to realize that it was college orientation week. It ended up being me, my buddies Shore Acres Drive, and about a hundred loud drunk college-age hipsters packed into a very dark basement. After the first two bands had played, I'd had enough of listening to inane conversations and banging my head off of the ceiling, and bailed. Ended up spending the night sleeping in my car in a parking lot in Tully. Didn't I write a song about this?

On the subject of bad dates, it seems that several women took it upon themselves to take note of my existence at precisely the moment that I stopped having free time to do anything other than work and go to band practice. Now I've got to pick one (or, more likely, none, at least if I want to be able to pay my bills), and I don't know what to do. My life has suddenly turned into an issue of Archie Comics. I don't even like Archie Comics.

I see the reason they did what they did to Shep, but I would have liked to come out alive. Shep can survive if you have over 4000 points from war assets and choose destruction, but it's not as cool as synthesis

So I will need that much, thanks.

Control was the only moral choice... But this time through I will save before the end and try all four endings.

The way I see it, the Control ending was what the Illusive Man wanted all along, while Synthesis is what Saren was aiming for in the first game. I always go with Destroy because it's what Anderson would have wanted.

I'm about ready to light my copy of Dragon Age: Inquisition on fire and throw it in the f#~~ing garbage. Currently on my third attempt at starting the game. The first time, I got just past the first part of the main quest, and all of a sudden, my character's head was invisible, and no amount of resetting the game could make it go back. So I started over, and everything was running smoothly until about 4 hours in, when I discovered that my save import hadn't worked. What the f~@! is going on?

Most of the way home from work, I was behind a large tanker truck with a sign on the back that read:

Is that a euphemism, or did I just miss something. "Something."

Overheard on the job site today:

"They need to get more kids into vocational programs in school. I mean, if a kid wants to make money, they can learn how to be an electrician. If they want to learn how to break tools and get in the electricians' way, they can learn how to be a plumber. And if they want to sit around and smoke weed all day, they can learn how to be a carpenter or a roofer."

I would venture that DA:I is worse, with Skyrim and Mass Effect 3 on the same level just below it. Granted, I haven't played that many games, but it seems like tiny text is becoming the way of the future.

So far, not impressed with Dragon Age: Inquisition for the 360 (and I've heard the PC port has even more problems). The character models look weird, everything is way too shiny, and EVERYTHING IS WAY TOO G*#@~*N SMALL TO SEE. I can barely read the text on the screen, I can't see any of the icons well enough to be able to tell what they do, and the camera is zoomed so far out that I can't even tell who's who most of the time. From what I can tell, this game was made for people who have massive high-definition TVs, and for those of us who don't, well, we can just go f%+$ ourselves.
