I don't really wanna pull the "you're too young to understand yet" card, but...you're too young to understand, man. It's kind of like in Armageddon, when your PC is a real-life year old, and you've lost everyone they were friends, lovers, comrades-in-arms with...when you find a new PC who's worth anything you want to cling to them, because you get that it's rare and valuable.

In the last 4 years I have lost: My mom, my two remaining grandparents, and a woman who was like a second mother to me. I have seen people in my extended network go through devastating losses. Each of us is only given a certain amount of time on this ball of dirt, and the only thing that's really important when it comes down to it is the impact we have on other people, and the connections we make with them.

Life's too short to not give a shit about the connections that I do have. That's not estrogen talking; it's an adult understanding of love and loss.
I'm gonna go all Gimfalisette on you guys and lay down some numbers.

The man I consider the love of my life is someone I never met. He's still 'the one' after 16 years.

It's funny how 'working' when you LOVE what you do isn't subject to how much you think you should be paid on a normal job.

Nothing ruins your meal at a steakhouse like an overcooked $90 porterhouse.

Can't/shouldn't put the whole story on Facebook:  A John brought in his whore to my Ruby Tuesday, presumably to feed and water her before he umm... rode her like a cowboy ahh... got his fiddy sid worth of ho ... hmmm... paid her for her services. They couldn't look me in the eye (either one of them) and I guessed they were gonna be shitty tippers so I was in the kill them with kindness mode. I doted on those motherfuckers like they were my dying grandmother. Constant refills, annoying 'how's everything's. The whole nine.
It was glorious to walk up on them time after time when they were trying to get jiggy with it at my table, ShaL the cock-blocker at her finest. Walking up on her looking and preening at herself in his phone while he drooled (both his hands under the table on his wacker) was giggle worthy too. Getting him to laugh from telling her 'Gurrl stop it, you know you're pretty" when she was primping was probably the clincher and the one who raised her cattiness to new heights. In the end, I ended up with a $5 tip on a $70 bill but with a memory that will last a lifetime. No one can convince me that they were a couple. She was wearing an acid washed jean skirt, patterned pantyhose, hooker heels, painted and chipped press on nails and stunk of cheap body spray. Her weave was FABULOUS though. Big bitch, like easily 5'10". Spitting image of New York.


I'm taking an indeterminate break from Armageddon for the foreseeable future and thereby am not available for mudsex.

Now that I've gotten a job at a shittier version of Ihop, I am ready to accept humans as the useless pieces of shit they are.
God have mercy on my soul.

Changing metadata on Windows 8 sure is an enormous pain in the ass.
There really is no attempt at making different magicks balanced.  The imbalance is intentional and part of the game world

Man people use the word meta so interchangeably with different meanings and suffixes that I have no idea what the fuck the word is supposed to mean anymore.

It's used a few different ways from what I've seen. Metagame is patterns and techniques that surface inside of a game that fluctuate based on popularity and efficacy. Sometimes meta is used to describe something inside of something else, or layers on top of each other, or it's used to describe one which leads to another.

Then you have all those words that make sense under that definition of self-referential: metaphysics, metadata, metacognition... etc

I got a computer with Windows Vista and almost a gig of RAM. it's enough to play Arm so that's something.
