Although trying to take copius amounts of notes with an burnt hand is not my idea of fun. Oh well. Let the fun of class begin! chevalierTue, 14th Sep '04, 3:01amTwo weeks for me yet :) Gavin de ValgeTue, 14th Sep '04, 3:34amFirst time on first page of a Random Babbling! Classes have started and I have an absurd amount of work. This means, of course, less sleep :mad: . Well, time to get back to my history essay... HarbourboyTue, 14th Sep '04, 3:57amWow - 2 hours and still not 10 posts in the new RB. Usually there are all sorts of people clamouring to get in the Top 10.... OazTue, 14th Sep '04, 4:02amTaser taser kindergarten nap time. (random babble) chevalierTue, 14th Sep '04, 4:09amEven chev needs sleep sometimes. Not enough elven blood, I guess. 'Night. Dark Haired BeautyTue, 14th Sep '04, 5:47amSleep is a symptom of caffeine deprivation. AldazarTue, 14th Sep '04, 5:54amNo chance of caffeine deprivation here - a dozen or more cups a day for me. Actually, I probably have coffee running through my veins instead of blood by now. HarbourboyTue, 14th Sep '04, 6:08amA dozen? How does anyone even have time to have a dozen cups of coffee in a day? I can barely be bothered to get up and make the one cup that I have a day. I think I would just feel bloated all day if I drank that much coffee (especially if they all came with lots of sugar and creamy milk). AldazarTue, 14th Sep '04, 6:18amLots of time is a major side-effect of unemployment. Management of that time only comes after practice and 7 years of being unemployed. The coffee aspect of it is itself a side-effect of not liking the taste of most teas now. DiceTue, 14th Sep '04, 7:08amI wouldn't call lots of time a side-effect. That insinuates something bad. Time is all we have and it's limited so enjoy it. You never know when you are going to run out. JaguarTue, 14th Sep '04, 8:26amOne day I may drink cofee. Or I might skip the middle man and take caffine intravenously. /me hits ebay for an IV drip SleepleSSTue, 14th Sep '04, 10:14amCoffee is the stuff that keeps the motor running for me! I think I have between 5 and 12 coffee a day, depending on if I have to work yes of no. I also drink energy drinks at school, not as good as coffee but almost dubbel the caffeine. Gonna phone some more companies today there must be one out their abel to help us! MidwinterTue, 14th Sep '04, 10:47amCoffee is, for me, eternal torture. Everyone I know drinks it, and while it smells great, the taste is terrible. Tea's much better. ArabwelTue, 14th Sep '04, 11:22amWell, i think it's annoying I couldn't reply in the last babble, but here goes... 1. It was an accident. The scissors were tangled in other stuff I was going to throw at her. 2. I think I made a spectacle out of myself, cooing at a computer wrapped in my coat in horrific rain, taking it from the car to the store.... she needed the coat more than I did, nbut I think I am sick again. 3. sociopath: A person affected with an antisocial personality disorder. Namely, someone to whom the constraints of society mean nothing, doesn't give a damn about anything anf the like. What can I say, I am insane. Am still waiting for the repaiir people o call me from the store. *sigh* chevalierTue, 14th Sep '04, 11:28amGive us this day our daily coffee... I'm having my breakfast. Guess what? Sure, a cup of coffee. I suppose you also know what my lunch will be. ArabwelTue, 14th Sep '04, 11:43amDid I forgot to mentiont hat I finally learned how to make coffee? But I still am not drinking it, it's just for the random guests. I invited my therapist to come see my new place, and have coffee... she's brtinging the munchies, and believe me, i am awaiting that... the local hospital cafeteria has the best pastries I'v ever had. I think I am getting domestiicated.... urgh. chevalierTue, 14th Sep '04, 11:52amSeeing to things starts soon. Today is the dentist, tomorrow I'll have to go to uni and get my second year's papers stored. I still need to find two people and get them sign my index book so I would get credits for their classes. I don't need those to move on, but they are handy. I've moved that site (http://www.chevalier.boo.pl) of mine, but I still need to work on the Guestbook before making it available. Yeah, I'm going for my own one and dropping the free service I used for the old site. DeathmageTue, 14th Sep '04, 11:58amSqueezed on first page... reepnorpTue, 14th Sep '04, 1:18pmIn honor of the World Cup of Hockey finals tonight I think I should have some fish for lunch and eat the Finns. :evil: ShrikantTue, 14th Sep '04, 1:31pmUnfortunately donuts dont mix with coffee :wail: However there always are cookies :) ColthrunTue, 14th Sep '04, 1:34pmMy bike's rear wheel is broken, I'll have to walk home today... :( ArabwelTue, 14th Sep '04, 1:35pmReepnorp. you'd be lucky is you merely choked, since the FInns just might give you a severe case of indigestation :evil: I wish I'd get my stupid TV to work... Dave the Magic TurtleTue, 14th Sep '04, 1:38pmCoffee, Tea...bah, nastey foul beverages! As too cookies...well they are the most amazingly ingenious invention in the history of the ooniverse! So much pleasure from an edible circle...Amazing! *goes off to find cookies* chevalierTue, 14th Sep '04, 2:14pmCoffee and tea. The first thing I ate today was dinner. Just meat. Now tea time and have to go. Will be back late afternoon or evening. BigStickTue, 14th Sep '04, 2:48pmBabble, babble, babble. Somebody eat the fish, chop down the beanstalk, and send the astronauts into deep space. Go Cubs! :D GrovflabTue, 14th Sep '04, 4:49pmHockey... A bunch of grown up men skating around on ice like sissy little schoolgirls! :p Or it might just be because I have no understanding of that game either.... HugoTue, 14th Sep '04, 5:14pmBabble... I don't care much for coffee... I drink it from time to time to remind the multiverse really *does* suck... much better to have tea (a word of advice though... drink it, don't throw the pot and the floor/over the feet) PE was great today... I don't think I've ever climbed that much wall during our wall climbing classes... did a really hard one too, now my arms and hands are really aching. Still... feels good! :borg: EDIT: Just read up on the end of RB25... Faraaz, I have quite long (for a guy, anyways) hair... and my head has been itchy for years... not bugged or anything (I was the only person in our house *not* affected by a recent plague of hairlice (brought in by my lil' brothers *STUPID* school)) But it's just... itchy. OD's on brainwaves, I think [ September 14, 2004, 17:40: Message edited by: Big Bald Ranger ] RegisterTue, 14th Sep '04, 5:48pmBBR, you have long hair for a guy you say, about how long is it? (The hair, you sickos!! ;) ) chevalierTue, 14th Sep '04, 6:54pmCoffee... yes, I can get myself one. Why not. Sure. ShrikantTue, 14th Sep '04, 7:13pmI got a new gem ... weee ;) Xei Win TohTue, 14th Sep '04, 7:20pmThis is my post the number 666th. Better celebrate that with something fitting: :evil: HAIL SATAN! :evil: SleepleSSTue, 14th Sep '04, 7:38pmHAIL! I'm having an Ice Cream, that's nice in the fires of Hell! I made a mistake today pressing thje hot water bytton instead og Coffee :( Tea just isn't my cuop of tea :p . At least not in the morning, or before class... For those still intrested: Piepiep hasd gone on a new Adventure! Check al 5 of them out here: http://members.lycos.nl/undeadpoet LaiwethelTue, 14th Sep '04, 8:08pmWow, I need to review my Latin. Four months of not studying it can really set one back. Participles...gotta love them. :p JaguarTue, 14th Sep '04, 8:50pmAnybody notice that chev is stuck in a loop? Coffee, coffee, coffee, ect. :spin: BTW, Go Canada! chevalierTue, 14th Sep '04, 9:04pmNo, I'm getting some tea in a minute :p chevalierWed, 15th Sep '04, 12:21amAnd another one right now. Seems I've made that evil Guestbook work. It doesn't even look that bad. JaguarWed, 15th Sep '04, 2:49amSo tired.... :sleep: DiceWed, 15th Sep '04, 3:31amHey! How did Chev manage to post one right after the other?!? At least we can be thankful they're not his usual 1 pagers. I do believe the insult thread is growing at over twice the speed of random babbling. JAGUAR!!!! WAKE UP LaiwethelWed, 15th Sep '04, 3:34amI have a sinking feeling that taking four courses this term was a bad idea. There is going to be so much work to do, and so little time to do it. On another note, does anyone have any idea how long it takes for a 2nd degree burn to heal? chevalierWed, 15th Sep '04, 3:36amJust switched to SP from my newest adventure: a paladin/sorcerer. Decided to take 3 levels in the paladin class and move on to sorcerer. No interesting threads, guess I'll have to go play IWD2 back. @Dragonfly: It's because I'm special. @Lai: About a week. SplungeWed, 15th Sep '04, 3:40amFin-land Sucks! Fin-land Sucks! Fin-land Sucks! (Hockey-related, for those not aware.) :p LaiwethelWed, 15th Sep '04, 3:44am:rolling: :spin: Canada rules the world of hockey! /me starts singing "O Canada" chevalierWed, 15th Sep '04, 4:27amAll work for today done, nothing interesting going on and don't feel like playing IWD2 anymore. Time to bed, I guess. Uni paper job tomorrow. StefaninaWed, 15th Sep '04, 5:56am@ Lai: Mine took about two weeks to heal. Of course, it was my right hand fingers, and I had to type all day, which did not help. Babble: I never really developed a true taste for coffeee. I may have four cups a year, and those are mostly in the winter when hot cocoa isn't available. In other news, looks like I get to escape this hurricane. It's no surprise, since I'm prepared for this one, it's not going to happen... Flooding is still a danger though, the river may not have crested yet. ShrikantWed, 15th Sep '04, 6:59amMan I ran out of coffee! Guess I'll have to settle for Nescafe :( HarbourboyWed, 15th Sep '04, 7:11amNescafe is made of coffee, isn't it? AldazarWed, 15th Sep '04, 7:15am@Shrikanth - you say coffee and donuts don't mix? You must have been trying the wrong donuts. Go ask a cop for advice on which ones, I love donuts and coffee but have never had a problem unless I fall asleep while donut sits in coffee. I never thought I'd hear a band who could make Pearl Jam, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Creed, Stevie Wonder and Wild Cherry sound the same. But it happened on Friday night. Also never thought I'd see a Jewish guy try to join the KKK by initially telling the Grand Dragon that he didn't do anything Jewish anymore, then saying that he's so white/blonde-hairded/blue-eyed that if he went to school with Hitler, he'd beat Hitler up for being a wog. But I saw that on Mondy night. And he got out in one piece. Aah, the weirdness that is John Safran. JaguarWed, 15th Sep '04, 7:47am/me wakes up Yeah Canada and such... :sleep: AldazarWed, 15th Sep '04, 7:54amWhat's this Canada you guys keep mentioning? :p Maybe I need to buy another braincell to join the one I was born with. :xx: JaguarWed, 15th Sep '04, 8:14amThat's an easy fix. Just slap an Immortality Ring around your noggin. :shake: BTW, Darkthrone, can you change your avatar? It makes me feel sorry for you everytime I look at it. :cry: EliosWed, 15th Sep '04, 8:59amI once knew this couple from Alabama. He was tough and ruthless, she was rough and toothless. You know how long its been since I posted in a Random Babbling? My god. What is wrong with me? SleepleSSWed, 15th Sep '04, 10:26amThe night was full of stars drinking up hollywood, having fun with hookers and spent hours driving drunk to offroad atractions. Then there was that shot... and the president was gone! TazaWed, 15th Sep '04, 10:51am@Splunge: Posting something like that when we're asleep? (well, all even somewhat remotedly sane finns are asleep. :p ) ColthrunWed, 15th Sep '04, 11:12amSlept three hours last night, damn all interesting books... :coffee: ArabwelWed, 15th Sep '04, 11:18am*reuses to admit that Canada exists* Grrr....... *sticks a hockey stick into Splunge's guts* *says lots of things that are unprintable* Let's see, rthe last week has been just fabulous.... mom disowns me, Jenova had to be senta away to be fized since the repair people were flummoxed, the stupid cat is refusing to be tamed and now THIS? *sigh* Life does indeed suck chevalierWed, 15th Sep '04, 1:11pmFeeling violent, Ara? /me finishes off his tea and goes to the uni to set the papers straight... A la battaille! For gold and gore! Eerr... for gold and glory! :shake: :lol: ArabwelWed, 15th Sep '04, 1:34pmOf course I feel violent, i am currently on a sever OUATIM kick and thuus am channeling Sands... if I were still on a PotC kick and channeling Jack Sparrow, I'd be planning getting that bottle of rum I have stashed away and starting to drown my sorrows... but since it's Sands who's scaring the voices in my head away, I just plan to shoot the cook. Or possibly do something else, who knows. I'm just the product of my enviroment; my uncle sleeps with a shtgun under his bed. RallymamaWed, 15th Sep '04, 2:08pmIf anyone feels like RP-ing some badness, the Dark Side of Takara's new Pirates scenario is now accepting recruits. PM me or catch me in the FAI, or just start posting! TaluntainWed, 15th Sep '04, 4:37pmSo much stuff to do, but I've got a horrible headache that just won't go away. :sick: chevalierWed, 15th Sep '04, 4:40pmOh my, Aik tried to recruit me for the previous one, but I couldn't really afford reading into the setting and all. Might as well try now. I'm sort of a Norrington type. Edit: Poor Tal, hope you get well soon. I can put this den of mess to some order for you when you're down healing, if you wish :evil: :lol: Xei Win TohWed, 15th Sep '04, 5:16pmEDIT: Eh, just posted my reply for the movie hero quiz here... gotta edit it away, so babble babble, homework sucks. LaiwethelWed, 15th Sep '04, 6:02pmIt seems that my Phonetics course is not what I expected it to be. It still looks interesting, but it's going to be complicated. Ah, linguistics. Hang on though, what can I do in life with a degree in Classics and an emphasis in Linguistics? SleepleSSWed, 15th Sep '04, 8:38pmDon't try to fix me! I'm not broken! Finally I know that line is from Hello by Evenescense! Did some school work today but not much since I had an headache and slept for an hour almost drooling over my studiy books. I hope I can do some schoolwork this weekend! SplungeWed, 15th Sep '04, 9:05pmBTW, Darkthrone, can you change your avatar? It makes me feel sorry for you everytime I look at it Actually, for some reason I can't quite put my finger on, I think his avatar is seriously cool. :thumb: MidwinterWed, 15th Sep '04, 11:18pmMy lower back aches. I've been Qi Gonging (I Qi Gong, he\she\it Qi Gongs, we Qi Gong, they Qi Gang, he\she\it Qi Ganged, we Qi Gangeded? I'm seriously confused now...) most of the evening. chevalierWed, 15th Sep '04, 11:29pmAh, linguistics. Hang on though, what can I do in life with a degree in Classics and an emphasis in Linguistics?When I last visited my school where I had classics, I told them I was writing gravestone inscriptions in Latin for people at the local cemetery. They believed. ShrikantWed, 15th Sep '04, 11:46pmWondering what the reason is for there being 34 posts to a page :borg: MidwinterThu, 16th Sep '04, 12:39amDidn't the last have 35? Eh, no matter. Numbers. GrovflabThu, 16th Sep '04, 1:06amHuh? Me like numbers.... Me thinks numbers are pretty.... Me like pretty little things.... Me be very silly and go to bed now.... DiceThu, 16th Sep '04, 4:46amI received a heart-wrenching email from my friend today telling me that his mother passed away yesterday. I feel so sad for him. chevalierThu, 16th Sep '04, 4:59amCondolences. Kelvon ShadowmaneThu, 16th Sep '04, 5:51amThe essence of predetermination is purelly the basic step in the path to enlightment. (Kelvon, 29,04) ...am i going mad?... AldazarThu, 16th Sep '04, 6:57am**waves to Kelvon on my way back from going mad** Aahh, madness, I'll be back there soon, I never can seem to stay away long. SleepleSSThu, 16th Sep '04, 9:16amFeeling sick my throat is aching :( HugoThu, 16th Sep '04, 9:44amBlech... off to school in 5 mins... no time to read all the RB... guess I'll put it off till this afternoon :borg: JaguarThu, 16th Sep '04, 10:47amActually, for some reason I can't quite put my finger on, I think his avatar is seriously cool. :thumb: And for some reason I can't put my finger on, I am think that it was painted from a priest's PoV. :D SleepleSSThu, 16th Sep '04, 1:28pmI feel like a stick sticking in somthing sticky! chevalierThu, 16th Sep '04, 1:49pmThe key to enlightenment is pain. With pain wisdom comes and those who know not true pain know not true wisdom. Those will not be englightened who have not suffered. [Chev 5, 67] ArabwelThu, 16th Sep '04, 2:20pmToday has been a nasty day, but I did spend last night creatively... namely, writing. Am getting some of my last files out of the hellhole I was in before mom's attck, which is good... btu I still can't get ll of them :( Life sux. chevalierThu, 16th Sep '04, 4:24pmPoor Ara :( Life truly sucks, but mine seems to have taken a break. I'm actually happy. Can't believe I am. HugoThu, 16th Sep '04, 4:55pmArrr! I had written a big-ass post... then some popup appeared. And now it's all gone. Can't be bothered to rewrite. Keep breathing Ara... everything will eventually work out for better. (Well maybe it won't be at least you'll still be breathing) Had a great night last night - consequently, I feel miserable now... How shrill these contrasts are. At least it's almost weekend. Wow, I've RB'ed a decent bit afterall BTW Caleb, down to the bottom of the neck. So, not very long, but a *lot* longer then roughly 90% of all guys I know. :borg: ShellThu, 16th Sep '04, 6:35pmDiets suck..... JSBBThu, 16th Sep '04, 7:42pmWow I'm impressed, I just received a client's accounting records - prepared using one of the major commercial accounting software packages, and they are out of balance. I am fairly certain that the software doesn't even allow you to post an unbalanced entry without having to override at least one error message. Also, one has to question why on earth the bookkeeper wouldn't notice this when the fact that the books are not balanced shows up in big bold print on the trial balance. To make things even better my request for an electronic copy of the computer files has resulted in my receiving - you guessed it - a big envelope full of printouts. :rolleyes: SplungeThu, 16th Sep '04, 7:50pmWell, I guess that explains why they are coming to you. :D ShrikantThu, 16th Sep '04, 9:13pmGuess they are trying to make you earn your fee :shake: Nizidramanii'ytThu, 16th Sep '04, 9:21pmI just ate some food.... (interesting) Funny you mentioned some parent being dead. A friend of mine had her dad deceased last week... And in school there was another mother (of some kid) who passed away too. A sad week, and for me too, for it was school. Well, if I should have learned more the other year, I would have finished school. Redoing a year isn't bad though, but I guess you people all left school life behind. (in some cases a long time ago) Also, do you have any hints on how to appear adult in forums other than typing grammatically correct. I am normally quite serious, but I think my post seem childish. (Help me, whine whine) JaguarThu, 16th Sep '04, 9:26pmJust do what chev does. Talk about never sleeping, how relationships are hopeless, and how coffee and alcohol are the only two fluids you need. I thought he was 90 for the first few days I posted. :D HarbourboyThu, 16th Sep '04, 9:34pmIt's 363 days until my next birthday. Nizidramanii'ytThu, 16th Sep '04, 9:34pmImagine a 90 year old sage posting here. That's what we truly need. A forum sage... Who is the 'elder' here at the forum? HarbourboyThu, 16th Sep '04, 9:48pmThere is a whole thread somewhere in SS surveying the age of SP members. We found 2 or 3 characters who were well into retirement but did not post regularly. I think we established that the mighty Splunge was the oldest regular (i.e. at least daily) poster. SplungeThu, 16th Sep '04, 9:55pmI think we established that the mighty Splunge was the oldest regular (i.e. at least daily) poster Yes, and trust me - when you get older, it's very important to be regular. :xx: SleepleSSThu, 16th Sep '04, 9:59pmJohnny Ramone is dead! Shock! We will miss this Legendary Punkrocker! chevalierThu, 16th Sep '04, 10:09pmAlso, do you have any hints on how to appear adult in forums other than typing grammatically correct. I am normally quite serious, but I think my post seem childish. (Help me, whine whine)All respect people could possibly have for you will be worthless to you if you won't be able to respect yourself. The only way to earn your own respect is to bear with the truth as it is. Seek the truth and it shall make you free. ShrikantThu, 16th Sep '04, 10:41pmImagine a 90 year old sage posting here. That's what we truly need. Looking at his posts, I shudder to think how sage like Chev will sound like at 90. Then again at this rate he should be insane in a couple of years :shake: ejsmithFri, 17th Sep '04, 1:44am* 1) You can buy a second copy of XP, and install it on a second partition or another physical drive. Use one without network support and Service Pack 1a, and the other with network support and Service Pack 2. Make a third partition to share games across. There are ways around buying a second copy, but it invoves clubbing baby seals and peeing in the kool-aid pitcher. NO ONE likes the individual who just peed in the kool-aid. 2. Use a Linux distribution. Use Linux for your internet needs, and SP1a for your Temple of Elemental needs. 3. Buy a second machine. There are $600 laptops down at Wally World that would run TToEE just fine. 15" LCD and shared system memory means you wouldn't want anything over 800x600, but that's what the game is designed for in the first place. Kind of expensive for one game, but you can use it for other things as well. Fairly cheap and compact Linux box. HarbourboyFri, 17th Sep '04, 1:54amUm, should this be in the ToEE Board? Although taken out of context like this, it is a piece of random babbling so maybe it is OK. AldazarFri, 17th Sep '04, 4:45amI may actually get to see my now-7-year-old (his birthday is today) next Friday!! :thumb: Gotta be at the Family Court for a Family Report and I may even get to see him on the Sunday as well. if a miracle occurs that is. The only downside is that I have Contact scheduled with my youngest son that Sunday as well. :( LaiwethelFri, 17th Sep '04, 5:18amI love choir so much. There were a lot of people there tonight, about twice what we had last year, which is a very good thing. What was exciting was that we actually had about six guys singing. Last year, we were lucky if we could get four guys to show up to rehersal. The one downside of choir is that I had to deal with the two most annoying people in the school for two hours. I get to see them at least once a week until April. Oh joy. StefaninaFri, 17th Sep '04, 5:23amWell, the six counties in Forida that were not yet declared national disaster areas just got nailed by Ivan. Now the entire state is a national disaster area. And there's yet another one that could head this way... I am officially sick and tired of hurricane season. HarbourboyFri, 17th Sep '04, 5:31amWhat a nightmare. Your hurricane is even front-page news in New Zealand. There's a big picture of it that takes up half of today's front page in The New Zealand Herald. StefaninaFri, 17th Sep '04, 6:46amI believe it. I live in north central Florida, so I wasn't in the landing zone of Ivan. The west part of the Panhandle is what Ivan hit. It has destroyed many homes and businesses, and even an interstate highway bridge, amoungst other things.. My workplace is sending people out to cover the areas hit by Ivan, since many of the employees there have family members that were hurt/killed in the storm. DiceFri, 17th Sep '04, 7:44amThe power of nature can be devastating. I live in the prairies so I will never see a hurricane here. There have been some pretty horrible tornadoes here though now that the climate is starting change. I've come to the realization that people get what they deserve. My co-worker who so easily turned on me is now seeing that I'm not to be messed with. She is pretty much alone and it is her own doing. I think that the ultimate reason she turned on me in the first place is her own insecurity. I can imagine her frustration at having all her psychological ugliness bounce right back in her face. I don't even have to do anything. Her seeing the way that people respond to me compaired to how they respond to her is torture enough I think. ArabwelFri, 17th Sep '04, 8:41am*Huggles all Floridans* I believe my brother-in-laws (HI am still not used at saying that, even if its been 3 monthes since my sister got married...) has an uncle or something who lives in Florida... I have a headache of horribele proportions.... and boy, Ive decided to never again to have Chinese food in one of the restaurants in the nearest city... it was severely bad. *sigh* I wonder if I can ever get my latest written scribvbles online, since floppies are so evil. :( JaguarFri, 17th Sep '04, 10:37amDidn't I turn heads at work and school today in my new SP shirt. All the ladies were all over me when they found out I killed Kangaxx. I like my new mouse pad too. Xei Win TohFri, 17th Sep '04, 10:57amThat girl I like touched me today... even if it was a foot-to-shin touch. HugoFri, 17th Sep '04, 10:59amYayness... babbling randomly from the school's computer room... I'm melting and I WANT MY WEEKEND! Lots of work, lots of school, more work... weekend won't start till past dusk, I think. Oh well... babble :borg: ArabwelFri, 17th Sep '04, 11:43amFound out what's wrong with my dearest darlingest Jenova: She blew her motherboard. Now, since Jen has been with me for years and years and years, this of course means getting new.... oh, everything except for the casing, CD drive, floppy drive and harddrives.... but of course since the HDs are so easly, I got a new one as well. The problem? I now need to beg, steal or borrow 400 euros for this to happen. *shakes her head* It's time to casll the godfather... Xei Win TohFri, 17th Sep '04, 7:57pm/me has 11111 words in the FAI, and wonders why this is the first random babble in EIGHT HOURS AND FIFTEEN MINUTES LaiwethelFri, 17th Sep '04, 8:04pmSomehow the scab that had been forming over my lovely burn got ripped off, so now there's no protection for it. Being accident prone is not fun. :( Xei Win TohFri, 17th Sep '04, 8:31pm@Lai: I just misread 'burn', for 'bum' :D Got a whole other meaning :shake: ShrikantFri, 17th Sep '04, 8:39pmThats a common enough mistake :lol: I made it on purpose though :shake: HugoFri, 17th Sep '04, 8:50pmLai I hear ya... I have a small burn blister on my foot, and I totally messed it with PE... And that's only a small one. /me mutters about gravity and how glass should be shock resistant. Eat chocolate, and I've also found that calendulan (sp?) salve really helps the healing... although it *hurts* to apply salve to the wounds, of course. :borg: JaguarFri, 17th Sep '04, 9:12pmWho wears short shorts?

DiceSat, 18th Sep '04, 5:17amIsn't it amazing how one small touch can have such a heavy impact on people. Sometimes the lightest whisp of skin to skin can cause havok to the inside. chevalierSat, 18th Sep '04, 5:20amEspecially the lightest one... or one that almost was there, but wasn't. Dark Haired BeautySat, 18th Sep '04, 6:51amThe land was alive to his loving touch, and he, its son, was brother to all creatures." Stewart Udall DiceSat, 18th Sep '04, 7:38am"In rivers, the water that you touch is the last of what has passed and the first of that which comes; so with present time." - Leonardo da Vinci JaguarSat, 18th Sep '04, 10:51am"At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet." - Plato UytuunSat, 18th Sep '04, 11:56amLeffingeLeuren! You people touch my heart with the touch quotes. Keep on touching. chevalierSat, 18th Sep '04, 1:02pmThere are times when bliss lasts for long enough to take half of your heart with it when it passes; yet there are times when bliss lasts as a hearbeat or a blink of the eye and puts a poisoned blade in your heart before you notice. One is always unchanged, it strikes as a bolt of lightning, from nowhere to nowhere. TakaraSat, 18th Sep '04, 1:51pm"A turnip is for life... not just for christmas" - Takara :grin: ShellSat, 18th Sep '04, 1:54pmWhere did all the flowers go? chevalierSat, 18th Sep '04, 2:19pmLove is patient, is kind. Love does not envy, is not perverse, is not puffed up, is not ambitious, does not seek her own, is not provoked to anger, thinks no evil. Love does not rejoice in unrighteousness, rejoices with the truth, endures all, believes all, hopes all, suffers all. Love never fails. It's basically everything that needs to be said. HugoSat, 18th Sep '04, 5:40pmYeah... but reality will hit like a brick after that. :borg: chevalierSat, 18th Sep '04, 5:46pmHow many times? DiceSat, 18th Sep '04, 8:26pmBBR, reality will hit like a brick only if you are not equipt to handle it. Or are you saying that love is not reality? Maybe you are refering to "being in love" , at which point some people are sometimes blinded. I personally see true love (not just the initial stages) as being very real and definatly not always easy. SplungeSat, 18th Sep '04, 8:52pmArrr! (Just warming up for tomorrow :) ) Edit: Hey!

My IWD2 paladin/sorcerer owns. Hurrah for Chevaddon the Undershaved. He can cast 8 paralysing Chromatic Orbs 8 times on level 5. That or shield, adding an instant +7 to defence. Don't even need those Arcane Armour feats. The idea is to get surrounded and use Gedlee's Loop. Or lure them into a narrow pass and apply Aggannazzar's Scorcher. The real fun will begin when I get the Web spell... And I guess I'm getting Fireball with the closest level-up. Web and Fireball... :D Or lightning bolt. Lightning bolt is more in line with my personality. fadeSun, 19th Sep '04, 3:06amYou know Chev, sometimes I am not sure whether to respect you or to fear for you. :-D Personally I think my halfing assassin in BG2 will show you all, but that is just my opinion. *edit* I believe talk like a pirate day is tommorow. I can feel it already! Dark Haired BeautySun, 19th Sep '04, 7:03amDaily words of wisdom. What most people need to learn in life is how to love people and use things instead of using people and loving things. StefaninaSun, 19th Sep '04, 7:27amSpent the day cleaning up the debris left by the hurricane. Right now, nothing seems to have a bead on Florida... I hope it lasts. The city sewer systems still arent' back up to par.... gotta be careful not to flush too much water out of the house. However, unemployment in this state should go down... all hands will be needed to build back up. DiceSun, 19th Sep '04, 7:50amIt's almost midnight and the rain has started to pour outside. I think I'll stay up late and browse the net. First topic is sleepwalking. I've never done it but I'd like to know if it's true you shouldn't wake up a sleepwalker. fadeSun, 19th Sep '04, 8:10amI think it would be fine to wake one up, but, I am pretty sure one would/could fall down upon waking up. Least that would be my main concern. Hell, my brother used to sleep walk, and he would talk while he did it. Was kinda weird. TakaraSun, 19th Sep '04, 10:49amNOOO! dont wake up sleepwalkers! You'd be ruining their training to be a zombie! Xei Win TohSun, 19th Sep '04, 11:40amHey, I have over 700 posts! Homework still sucks.

Works every time! I do wonder why the hell I insisted on taking those shots in addition to the heroic amount of beer I had imbibed. LaiwethelSun, 19th Sep '04, 9:47pmI have not done any school work today. This is not good. I need to review stupid Latin grammar before my 9am class tomorrow. Ick. Not my idea of fun. chevalierSun, 19th Sep '04, 9:53pmPoor you. I recall putting Latin grammar in my head by force a day before a test. And she started giving us tests each Wednesday. Fortunately, she eventually switched to translations and we were able to learn grammar in a less stressful way. /me gives you a mug of hot tea :) SplungeSun, 19th Sep '04, 10:12pmAm I actually the first one to do this?!?

The A-hole had the nerve to tell me to leave her alone because I'm scaring her AND tell me that I'm not allowed to ring her at the time I did, even though the AVO clearly states that I can for the reasons I rang her. Now I feel like bursting into tears or killing someone for real. Can't do either in public though so I'll just get p!ssed off and cry on the inside. JaguarMon, 20th Sep '04, 9:45amAnd I've just had the best 8 hours I've had in ages. It was so wonderful.

AldazarMon, 20th Sep '04, 9:52amDo any weapons come with that T-Shirt? Preferably something that would increase the pain. JaguarMon, 20th Sep '04, 9:54amNot that I know of, but it is always a good idea to think about defence (http://www.zestuff.com/product.php?productid=2&cat=4&page=1&zoom=front). :D AldazarMon, 20th Sep '04, 9:58am:lol: :lol: I like that shirt, though at the moment I see defence as just something for those who are indecisive to sit on.

Still won't provide more than 1 AC though... What material was it from... Cotton gives +1? LaiwethelMon, 20th Sep '04, 4:35pmI hate the cost of textbooks. I just paid$140 CDN for 3 books, and I still have more to buy. The ones I still need are probably more expensive, but I don't know, as the bookstore doesn't have them in right now. :mad: chevalierMon, 20th Sep '04, 5:00pmYeah, I also end up paying lots for books that totally don't deserve it. They are printed on little better than recycled paper, paper-back and with no colour print or diagrams or anything inside, just text, but still cost like $/e 10-12 per one, or more if thicker. FaraazMon, 20th Sep '04, 5:51pmThat's what libraries are there for! :) I just borrow whatever textbooks I need a week before the exams and I'm set! :D BigStickMon, 20th Sep '04, 5:59pmMy wife was able to get one of her required textbooks through Amazon.com. It cost about 30% less than buying it through the bookstore at school, which didn't have any in stock, and she's sharing it with a friend. HugoMon, 20th Sep '04, 6:41pmHmm... I got hit by a bolt of random happiness today, scary stuff. Even school was great at the time... I'm either going mad, or falling in love... is there even a difference? is it too late? Questions, questions, answer will become clear in time. Today is a pretty cool day... although I'd really be much nicer if it wasn't storming, as I have papers to round. :sick: Oh ell, enough RB'ing... things to do, people to annoy :borg: EDIT: I read (red? readed?) up a bit... Dragonfly, although I believe love is real, I think the odds for the love as Chev mentioned is very small (although, through it's nature, always worth pursueing) given human nature (as I understand it). And whatever it is, it turns out to not be said love, *that* will hit like a brick. I think that's what I meant. ZiadMon, 20th Sep '04, 7:31pmAnd I've just had the best 8 hours I've had in ages. It was so wonderful. And great. For some reason, when I saw 8 hours, I immediately thought of sleep. Wait, now I know why. Because resting in IE games takes 8 hours... [sigh] I need a real life... GrovflabMon, 20th Sep '04, 9:26pmDamn, just had my basementroom robbed. The bloody idiots only took my bags with millitary equipment though. Don't know if they actually thougt they would contain guns or such... Still pretty annoying though. The took of with my webbing, gas mask, entrenching tool and combat knife, all of which has some sentimental value, since they have been with me for the last three years, two missions included...

LaiwethelTue, 21st Sep '04, 3:04amEver have one of those days that starts out so well, then just goes downhill? Class this morning was fine, but then went to get textbooks, and only managed to get three of the books I needed. :eek: While there, I ran into a guy with whom I had some fun over the summer, then found out that he was getting back together with his ex-girlfriend. After that, I came home and tried to get some more sleep before my evening class. Sleep didn't come to me at all. Went to class, which went well, but then ran into some people that I didn't want to talk to. :bang: Got home and changed my status on MSN, basically complaining about why the universe seems to love messing me up, only to have my ex send me a message. :flaming: My allergies are kicking in, and depression plus other problems specific to women are a very unpleasant combination. Maybe I should just go to bed so this day can end.

The a-hole who abused the crap out of me on Monday actually tried to get me arrested!! Though I must admit, I was pretty shaken up by it all. DiceWed, 22nd Sep '04, 6:01amStiff upper lip there Laiwethel. Sometimes life sucks harder than a lungfish on a minnow. Don't worry. The laws of average say that things can only get so bad and then they have to get better. And remember, you always have us for support. HarbourboyWed, 22nd Sep '04, 6:22amAldazar - how do you always manage to get into such strife? You seem to spend more time dealing with courts and police than anybody I know! JaguarWed, 22nd Sep '04, 9:30amYeah, we have to start up an SP legal team to bail you out one day. But if you do go to prison, go to prison in Canada. A guy I know went in to minimum security and it was set up like an apartment with bars. He had a computer with ADSL, cable tv, ect. HugoWed, 22nd Sep '04, 10:55amHmmm... School is suckies. My cellphone provider *will* be sued as I got scammed and am now annoyed. And out of money again. I wonder if there's any connection between autumn setting in and everyone's life starting to suck (harder). My head hurts. I want to sleep. I think I'm gonna vomit. My parents must *burn* they should be extra nice to me and feeding me chicken soup. Not sending me to school and telling me to 'live a healthier lifestyle'. Anyone knows of a website from which one can send free SMS text messages? Lousy weather here too. Yes as laws of average go, things are bound to be better... just dunno *when* that will be. Blech more classes... time to LeaveFast. :borg: ArabwelWed, 22nd Sep '04, 11:07amHmmm... I think i have finally found a good therapist... i voluntarily showed her family photos and invited her for tea instead of our usual meeting in her office. Worked pretty darn well, and I think i might actually manage to work through my issues instead of getting new ones like before. The fact that she's a devout Johnny Depp fan isn't hindering, of course :D We ended up talking about Depp's movies and I showed her the Pic (Yes, Aik, THAT pic) and she agreed with me. Life is reasonably good, with the exception of me still lacking broadband and Jenova being half-dead. SleepleSSWed, 22nd Sep '04, 11:18amSo here I am at school again. And it was real...educational... Thank Shar for coffee! Anyway live is going like a river sometimes fast sometimes slow and sometimes we almost drown in it...

Oh wait, it's still morning on the other side of the Atlantic. So probably sleeping. When you think about it, it's really funky. I just got home from work and am checking the forums, and someone else on the other side of the world might be checking the forums before he/she goes to work. SP is getting the people of the world closer! Well at least those who stay away from the Alley of Dangerous Angles... EDIT: See this is even weirder, I got beaten by Chevalier by only seconds. Not even one minute... BigStickWed, 22nd Sep '04, 5:48pmIt is a bit strange to consider. I do my check early in the morning *checks over shoulder* from work before the boss comes in. Once in a while I check back in throughout the day. For example, my previous post was added at 7:50am, my time. Days like this almost make me want to drink coffee.... :sleep: Dark Haired BeautyWed, 22nd Sep '04, 6:17pmThe first day of fall in the U.S! The sweet smell of homemade apple butter cooking on the stove. The leaves turning color and falling from the trees. Raking the leaves into a huge pile then jumping into them... Trick or Treating Why do the simple things in life bring such joyfull memories? :hmm: ShrikantWed, 22nd Sep '04, 7:05pmI just finished The DaVinci Code. Now I cant go through the Liar's Ball thread without going :shake: JaguarWed, 22nd Sep '04, 8:10pmI am wearing a tie. :nolike: I am not happy about that. :toofar: Damn executives coming in from the head office. :grr: chevalierWed, 22nd Sep '04, 8:13pmI prefer neckcloths to ties. But I won't wear bow-ties no matter what. JSBBWed, 22nd Sep '04, 8:21pmI am wearing a tie. I am not happy about that Me too but at least you wont have to wear one after the head office types are gone - wearing a tie is a required work day pain in the neck for me. :( Sarevok•Wed, 22nd Sep '04, 9:10pmWhat idiot came up with the tie, I hate bloody ties :toofar: JSBBWed, 22nd Sep '04, 9:27pmI have long suspected that the tie was invented by doctors or chiropracters as a means to generate business. Either that or some sadistic employer who wanted his employees to be as uncomfortable as possible. HarbourboyWed, 22nd Sep '04, 9:30pmPlease! How on earth can a tie do any damage to someone to the extent that they need a doctor or chiropracter?! If that is the case, you are doing it up far too tightly.............. chevalierWed, 22nd Sep '04, 9:50pmAnd that's bad. It can't be too tight. In fact, it should be a little loose. Elegance needs a little bit of fresh air. JSBBWed, 22nd Sep '04, 9:53pmO.K. I concede that needing to see a doctor or chiropracter is a bit of an overstatement. Also, the blame should be shared between the tie and the collared shirt. I normally wear a shirt one neck size too large (and boy is it annoying having to argue with the clerks to get them to sell me the one size too large shirt), unbutton the top button whenever I can get away with it and wear my tie so loose that my boss complains about it from time to time and my neck is still stiff by the end of the work day. I was in pure agony by quitting time when I wore the "proper" shirt size, kept it fully buttoned all of the time, and left my tie at the degree of tightness approved by the boss. When I work a full day doing the exact same things on Saturdays/Sundays (we are allowed to dress casually on the week-end, thank God) during tax season I have no such stiffness. Ergo I feel safe in laying blame upon the collared shirt and tie. 8peopleWed, 22nd Sep '04, 10:56pmWoohoo! After only four lessons - Frosty and I have both got our Grade One in Fencing. It usually takes about six lessons apprently, so we're doing pretty good :) :cool: :roll: But the boot of our car is broken! I cannot get it open so my school uniform and my schoolbag and computer are trapped in the back along with my mothers college work. Doomed! HarbourboyWed, 22nd Sep '04, 11:11pmYay!! I requested "Assassin's Apprentice" by Robin Hobb from the library on 1 June (after much recommendation from a lot of you) and now it has finally turned up so I can read it. At long last. :) Maybe this post should have been in Booktalk. Oh well, it's pretty random anyway. Bad luck, 8people! :( SplungeWed, 22nd Sep '04, 11:21pmHarbourboy, you're in for a treat. I really enjoyed that book, and I'm about 2/3 of the way through the second. JSBB, get out of public practice! My standard attire - Dockers (or similar), "business casual" shirt, semi-dress shoes. Comfy. :) HarbourboyWed, 22nd Sep '04, 11:23pmI still don't see what the big deal is with a shirt and tie. You guys need to get some clothes that fit. If they fit properly, they shouldn't be uncomfortable at all. OazThu, 23rd Sep '04, 12:15amI think the original purpose of the tie may have been to absorb moisture. IIRC, it was used by Haitian military (not sure if it was before the Haitian revolution). ejsmithThu, 23rd Sep '04, 4:33amAnd so it is, I find myself alone on a groaning seat of good intent. It appears you have won, my brother, for in this wicked world the better man is not the best. Have you come then, Robin Hood? I am here John. Then, let us make an end. --- For THIS I'll have your head upon a pike! It is not too late, John. You can still set the crown aside, John, even now. No. No, Robin Hood, I cannot. I must play the part unto the end. Come then! Remove my crown, if you will... StefaninaThu, 23rd Sep '04, 5:18amWork was very stressful today. By the end of the day, three of us were in tears. You would think licensed professionals could act like adults and not petulant children...

Where have you gone... UytuunThu, 23rd Sep '04, 2:13pmStupid cold. Stupid train. Stupid rain. Stupid lack of sleep. And too lazy to start working on getting out of this mood. Self-analysis rules. TaluntainThu, 23rd Sep '04, 2:23pmYou know, it'd be pretty easy at this point to further break down Whatnots so that eventually the only thing left would be this thread. :evil: ArabwelThu, 23rd Sep '04, 3:29pm*cackle* Hmm, I am starting to get too interested in Once Upon a Time In Mexico if I am actually starting to like - *shudder* - Enrique Iglesias. :bang: I really do hope I can get over it quickly enough... But the moment I mention having laid my grubby little paws on any of his CDs, someone please let me out of my misery? On the other hand, i feel old. So very, very old. Some kiddies from next door vcame to aske me yesterday if I had dropped a necklace, and then asked me if I had kids, or a husband, or pets and told me how many kids there were in the immediate vicinity. I feel OLD... if I ever start baking them cookies, shoot me. Please. Gah. LaiwethelThu, 23rd Sep '04, 3:37pmI really hate having my bedroom off of the kitchen sometimes. My housemates have no consideration for the fact that I don't have class until later on today and that I would like to sleep in. :mad: They were being very loud and talkative in the kitchen this morning, and now I can't get back to sleep. If the rest of the school year is going to be like this, I am going to be exhausted for the next ten months. chevalierThu, 23rd Sep '04, 3:44pmHad to go to the dentist's today morning and they kept me on the chair for two hours. It was nowhere close to pleasure. And then had to go pick up some papers for grandmother and check if some book had arrived for sister. Definitely need some coffee. JSBBThu, 23rd Sep '04, 3:57pmHa, Laiwethel - welcome to the hell that is shared student housing. When I moved out of residence I shared an apartment with three computer science guys - a.k.a. those mysterious slovenly mole people who stay up until five a.m. finishing the homework due that day and then sleep until well past noon - regardless of when they were supposed to be in class. I swear, I heard the three of them comment along the lines of "Well my program works, kind of, well enough to get a B at least, I think." so often that it made me sick. I on the other hand tended to get up at 6 A.M. and wandered out of my room into their filth wondering why on earth did I ever move off campus. I brought my own fridge - the main fridge was quite frankly a bio-hazard and I had the wonderful experience (twice actually) of one of my roommates somehow managing to clog the toilet and overflow it so that the entire floor of my room was covered with toilet water. I am the only person that I know of who moved back into the university's residences after having moved off-campus. Having a single room with weekly maid service, cafateria meals and considerably less noise than in my apartment building seemed worth the extra$1,000/semester. I can honestly say that the year of living in that apartment has killed any possibility that I would ever consider (a) living in an apartment building or (b) sharing any sort of living space with another guy. Son of BhaalThu, 23rd Sep '04, 3:59pmDentists are evil, almost as evil as ties, and thankfully I dont have to wear one @ work, I don't get paid enough for that corporate torture :) @ work right now, I'm dead bored, I think I'm going to make some paper airplanes out of post-its and throw them @ my supervisor :D post-its rule!! ArabwelThu, 23rd Sep '04, 4:09pmSome days I am just SO glad to be a female, since we're not supposed to wear torture devices ad strangle ourselves. AND of course, i am rtall enough to not to need heels :D LaiwethelThu, 23rd Sep '04, 4:16pmJSBB: Ouch. Definately sounds like you didn't have a good experience. My housemates aren't too bad, but living in a house with four girls and one and a half bathrooms can get interesting sometimes. And one of the girls has to have every single little thing organized. I can appreciate knowing that I need to do a certain chore by a certain day, but posting a sign saying what chores need to be done and when they have to be done by, I find that a bit much. I just don't appreciate being woken up by people talking loudly in the kitchen with no consideration of the fact that I was still asleep, or trying to sleep. JSBBThu, 23rd Sep '04, 4:45pmI can definitely appreciate the hastles of bathroom juggling - not from my apartment experience as my roommates were typically in bed or just getting into bed when I got up but the first house that my parents owned had only one bathroom and there were four of us. Compared to that I am laughing now, I have 2.5 bathrooms all to myself in my house. :) ArabwelThu, 23rd Sep '04, 4:51pmMy last case of apartmen-sharing was an utter failure... the otrher rooms were all rented to males, only one of them was ever round, the landlord nevrertr duid anything he was supposed to and it just sucked. Like anyone reading the random babble last month can attest to :D I just got a call tht told me that my wallet had been found in the local supermarket, and I hadn't even realized it was gone. Boy, do i feel stupid. Thankfully, not everyone is like me. 8peopleThu, 23rd Sep '04, 4:57pmwe got our car boot open - but my school unfiorm was all creased up. So I had to wear my old school skirt which is huge and pleated and more like a parachute. Probably the only time in my life I wished I had a shorter skirt :xx: but means I could do schoolwork at school and not get into trouble for coming to school without books... so yay and all that. it was jammed because my mothers bag was caught in the lock when the boot was slammed shut - there is a hole in the bag now. Son of BhaalThu, 23rd Sep '04, 5:05pmI lost £50 cash once, don't ask me how I managed it, but I went on a massive shopping spree and didn't even realive I lost it, I also left £20 hanging out of an ATM machine and then was told two days later that the bank is holding some idiots money behind the counter that was left in the cash outlet, (so I got out some money got my card and left the money :D ), when I checked my balance of my account... Boy, did I feel stupid... you now have an extra pocket in your bag now 8people, how cool is that? Dark Haired BeautyThu, 23rd Sep '04, 5:07pmSometimes sharing an apartment with other girls can be funny. An example is our fridge has become the random babbling place with a constant use of little yellow sticky notes. We need some food We had food your bf ate it all He was hungry I didn't think anyone would care We are hungry too. I bought food last time Pizza and beer is not real food Well everyone cant live off cigarettes like you I'll remember that next time you want one Girls I'm sorry I'll buy some food (roomies bf) You should you eat like a ton a day Are you saying Im fat No your just short for your weight the notes just go on and on. :D ArabwelThu, 23rd Sep '04, 5:14pm*gets a mental image of the Random Babble turnning intop a mile-high pile of post-it notes* I am SO glad that there are computers. :p
