Well, she's got one eye with a corrective intraocular lens and one eye that's srill myopic, so she's got distorted vision. Other than that, she's fine, and she's going to get fitted for a single contact lens to compensate for the distortion until she gets the second surgery done.

THAT was bad.

On a lighter note, I've just been sent an email with a picture of a flat worm infested brain, Im going to go and be sick now...

I was just called racist for saying I don't like rap or hip-hop music. Unbelievable! Thats the 3rd time getting that title in 5 years!
The other times were for asking for a black (or was it white?) coffee in Leeds (England) and for being thrown out of a Filipino cafe for being white (Belfast not Manilla)!

In other news, Rhetorical Question has an identity crisis and allows one personality to gain greater sway over the various others, assume control of his account and manifest an avatar. And a nice bit of Latin, too. Pretty.
The ego sits back and watches this new turn of events with interest.
Tue, 19th Jul '05, 5:08pm
is that you way of telling us that you've acquired an avatar and changed your name? :p
Tue, 19th Jul '05, 5:16pm
Well... in a roundabout way, yes. What's wrong with trying to make it sound a little more interesting? It's the RBP after all :p
Tue, 19th Jul '05, 5:27pm
Well well Congratulation Arifirh! Nice avatar too,
Ofelix looks at his little gems--- sigh, I want an avatar too! :( :(
What does that latin mean anyway?
Tue, 19th Jul '05, 5:44pm
Thanks Ofelix :)
The Latin means "Last light calls the defeated" - it's a line from the Aeneid book II after the sacking of Troy.
Tue, 19th Jul '05, 5:53pm
Yeah, congrats too. Just a question though: we can DO that? Change names if we get avatars? :eek:
sorry if it sounds like the country mouse in the city, but I wasn't aware of that :)
just a question, does Arifirh mean anything? or did you just change it because it sounds snazzier? ;) and is easier to type :D
Tue, 19th Jul '05, 5:55pm
You can change name even if you don't have an avatar. I used to be called Dungeon Master, but I was sick being always called DM so I change to Ofelix... But now on FAI people call me Flix... sigh...

Enagonios, there's an option to change your Public Display Name in your profile, as also demonstrated recently by Cesard --> Cúchulainn :)
I changed mine to be the same as my chatroom nick, which also happens to be my usual charname. Makes things much easier - also helps that it actually is snazzier and easier to type :D

Oh, it's still me...
/me does some Monty Python.
Unbeknownst to many, hidden carefully at the back of the list of secret weaponry of the Spanish Inquisition somewhere between 'fear' and 'nice red uniforms', is stealth. It involves the hiding of gems, the changing of names, and confuddlement of all who look upon me!
That reminds me, I could do with a cup of tea.
You will not expect my return. No-one ever does!
Tue, 19th Jul '05, 6:53pm
Well I wish I could get myself a Monty Python film, However that local store say they don't have it. Some people even said he didn't what that film was.

I'm NEVER gonna change my PDN. It took me five long seconds to come up with Felinoid, and it fits perfectly. I might change my title or location, but not my name. And the only avatar I like better than the one I've got now is Bard's 'rakshasa'.
Tue, 19th Jul '05, 8:54pm
I'm sticking to "The Magpie", too. Although I have been tempted to drop the "The" a couple of times, to avoid confusing others. The "The" isn't all-important, it's there because the name is more of a title bestowed upon me by my mates, on behalf of my ammunition hoarding habits during co-op games of Halo. I was also going to have "Ooh! Shiny Ones!" as my comment originally, but hadn't counted on the Dak'kon avatar being free. As it is, that quotation suits me perfectly.
Also, has anyone else noticed that a lot of people seem to go for avatars in the 200s? I reckon that the Toblerone-wrapper-esque ugliness of the Tchazar gem must be a big factor in keeping the SP servers running... :shake:

I've just got 100% in a purity test (http://www.okcupid.com/tests/take?testid=17359692280546572367)...
Wed, 20th Jul '05, 2:44am
Wow, that's a shocker. :lol:
BTW, I am 94% pure, pure as driven snow, whatever that means.
Wed, 20th Jul '05, 5:21am
Chevalier: No one is surprised! :lol:
Anyway I also got 94%. I mean 90%+ of the thing seem just too nasty do be doable.
Edit: Top o' the page!
Wed, 20th Jul '05, 5:56am
Yeah, I took that test and got puritan, but I have a past that's as pure as the driven slush--or at least I tried to make is so, but didn't have that much luck...
Wed, 20th Jul '05, 6:06am
I'm "Uncorrupted" at 82% pure :eek:
hurry! someone take it and score lower than me! this test deserves it's own thread Chev ;)
Wed, 20th Jul '05, 6:32am
Actually there was one about a month ago. then there sprang up a bunch of similar threads (I remember starting a couple of them)...
Wed, 20th Jul '05, 7:59am
The workday is far too long...
I will so NOT post my last purity test score... I don't want to scare anyone off.
Wed, 20th Jul '05, 10:37am
I'm so not pure that my company doesn't even allow me to soil any purity tests online with my presence...

Now that I'm back home in Canada, I'm wishing I were back in Greece.
It was such an incredible experience, and I wish it hadn't ended. The people, the colours and the flavours of the country all made a huge impression on me, and now I want to go back. It's almost like a second home.
Wed, 20th Jul '05, 12:44pm
hrmph, another post reminding me how I missed Greece in my last Euro trip :( next time I guess..
Wed, 20th Jul '05, 1:35pm
I need to travel soon. I'm getting wanderlust.
Wed, 20th Jul '05, 1:43pm
Yeah, I was to Greece five years ago and I still would like to go back some time.

I wish I could visit another country. So far the farest place I've been is Yukon/Alaska :( I want to see the old continent
Wed, 20th Jul '05, 6:19pm
I don't know if anyone cares, but I measured 85% pure, so Enagonios is still the most corrupt SPer. At least for now...
So, can anyone rise to the challenge and match such (relative) depravity? :shake: ;) :p
Wed, 20th Jul '05, 7:30pm
I want to go to a foriegn country. I have always wanted to visit Paris, and London, and Madrid, and Rome, and ... I need money. :(
Wed, 20th Jul '05, 8:54pm
Play lottery. At least that way there's always some (slim) hope of a huge amount of money coming your way.

And I refuse to tell my score with that test :p
Thu, 21st Jul '05, 1:54am
@Ara: Because it was higher than you would have liked, of course. :p
Men are hopeless. Just what guy will even think about lifting his big bum up when a woman enters the room? Heck, probably all or almost all would keep sitting even if she walked over and started talking.
Or shopping bags. Freaking disco freaks subculture guys in freaking jumpsuits walking before (horror already!) their women, the latter carrying full shopping bags. Wonder if the studs would at least keep the door open... not bloody likely, but maybe there's still some hope.
The comments they let out would get them shot in a decent society. Or slapped. Yeah, most of the modern "compliments" deserve a slap across the kisser. Just shoot them already.
On second thought, women aren't probably much better. After all, someone's taking those comments with a happy face, isn't he? Or letting those hands come and stay. Not to mention flaunting stuff around. I remember that wonderfully cynical phrase, "A lady is one that does not show her underwear unintentionally." Of course, I don't probably need to announce my reservations about intentional display. Here's freaking news: whatever you show will be looked on. After all, that's what they want when they show. You show for it be looked on or there's no freaking logic in it. I will gladly agree that there's a difference between looking and staring but come on, who's really into such subtle distinctions nowadays? Especially between those who are into showing. :rolleyes:
Wonder if men are ever going to start respecting women again and if women are ever going to start respecting themselves again. Looks like ladies and gentlemen has become a polite address nowadays. Either this or the name of an extinct species. Right... The dragons probably ate the princesses right before pounding each other into nonexistence with the knights.
Just give me some alcohol. Before I start ranting on dating customs. Too late! I've already started. Non-exclusive dating, my foot. What the hell is non-exclusive dating? How can one even think about kissing another when it's already come to kissing with a person? Even Catholics do that nowadays. And they think they're oh so moral and virginal. Yeah. My foot. :bs: I've actually been asked what's wrong with an extra-marital affair if there's no sex in it. Not to mention Catholics and other Christians thinking it's OK to have multiple such affairs and even teaching their children it's healthy. Someone's going to judge such things and I'm not that someone, so I don't care, but I pity the kids. Oh well...

How could you have an extra-marital affair without sex? :confused:
Thu, 21st Jul '05, 3:28am
How could you have an extra-marital affair without sex? Probably because to Chev, it's cheating to even think of another woman, if you're married.
Thu, 21st Jul '05, 4:42am
That guy has an awsome collection. I wish I could own half of those.
Thu, 21st Jul '05, 4:48am
Yes, I'm back, albiet briefly today.
Betach no-one missed me, betcha all forgot about me.... ;)
Anyway, been working my butt off, get maybe a day off a week so it's all good, and finally found an internet cafe near home so I'll hopefully be able to get back more often. Anyway, time's running short before I have to get ready for work tonight so I'm just gonna pop in to a few of my old haunts here and bail once more. Hope to be back real soon people. :banana:
Thu, 21st Jul '05, 4:57am
Aldazar, what disaster has befallen your life this time? You always have something tragic to tell us about. I always think of you as the unluckiest person I know(ish)
Thu, 21st Jul '05, 5:14am
Quite the opposite in fact (well, almost) I'm getting plenty of hours at work so I must be proving quite valuable to them, my 3-year-old's mother has had an amazing change of heart and is letting me see Riley every Wednesday, all day, as well as getting regular visits from them both, AND she and I are getting along really well and even discussing the possibility of getting back together (long story, and if we get back together I'll be strenuously advising we get couselling together). The only bad thing is that I still haven't seen Nathaniel (my almost-8-year-old) and it's been about 3 years now I guess.
Plus, working behind a bar cna introduce you to some seriously hot women who aren't looking for much in the way of commitment, just good, safe, consenting fun.
You never know though, my luck may return to what it was any time.
Thu, 21st Jul '05, 5:42am
ah. wb Aldazar, we missed you at thr quote game :D (said this in the purity test thread already though :bang: ) while the lucks going though might as well have as many nights of good, safe, cconsenting fun as you can ;)
Thu, 21st Jul '05, 6:48am
Bad day in the hay field today. Pulled a bale off the chute before it fell off going around a corner, and it came down hard--hyperextending my knee slightly, then later, when I missed a bale in a similar situation, I had to jump off the wagon, and my foot slid, causing me to fall and land on my hip. At least I was the only one not getting stung by the Bumblebees that were disturbed at one point...
Thu, 21st Jul '05, 6:50am
Gnarfflinger, once again I have no idea what on earth you are talking about. Did you visit some sort of farm-related theme park / assualt course?
Thu, 21st Jul '05, 7:09am
I imagine he was tending to bales of hay coming from a chute and he was careless. He ended up hurting himself. Hope you're feeling better, Gnarff.
Thu, 21st Jul '05, 7:48am
Working on cruise ships sucks, although the pay is pretty good. I just noticed they have a pc with an internet connection. Well, I better get back to work, a couple of thousand more dishes to do today, so I better get started. :p

Thu, 21st Jul '05, 11:30am
The same way you can have a relationship with someone without sex. Let's say, things that aren't necessarily sexual but not something you would do with your sister (or not the same way as you would with a sister). Acting like a romantic couple isn't perhaps an accurate description but the best I can think of right now. Would you believe that there are Christians who say (heck, more like preach) that it's okay to have several romantic partners at once, so long as you sleep with none? The trend is growingly popular and I've actually come across a clergyman talking such things.
Probably because to Chev, it's cheating to even think of another woman, if you're married.In sexual or romantic ways? But of course. It's not a problem when you see her and think what a nice, beautiful, smart or whatever girl she is. But it when it grows into fantasising, there is a problem. Whoever looks on a woman to lust after her, has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
@Aldazar: Welcome back! ;)
@Lynadin: Requiem aeternam dona eis... :D :lol:
But, seriously, congrats! :thumb:

Thu, 21st Jul '05, 4:00pm
So this is one of those thoughts=actions things. How would you classify aritistic appreciation? (e.g. Damn, that girl looks hot!)
Thu, 21st Jul '05, 4:19pm
Whoever looks on a woman to lust after her, has already committed adultery with her in his heart. just asking chev, but do you seriously believe this or are you just exaggerating?
There's still time to do a runner ;) and that smiley you used is hilarious :D
Thu, 21st Jul '05, 6:37pm
So this is one of those thoughts=actions things. How would you classify aritistic appreciation? (e.g. Damn, that girl looks hot!)That's not artistic appreciation. It's sexual appreciation. Artistic appreciation would gravitate in the direction of beautiful, charming, awe-inspiring etc rather than hot, sexy, whatever.
Still, there's no problem in recognising someone as sexually attractive. One would have a medical problem if he didn't feel attracted to attractive people of the opposite gender. There's a problem in acting on the attraction. Fantasising is already acting, as it requires a previous choice.
@Enagonios: I'm absolutely serious (and it was a verbatim quote from the Gospel according to Matthew :p ). Notice two things: "lust" and "to". It doesn't say anything about being attracted to someone or judging him as attractive. It concetrates on looking at someone in a sexual way, in order to incite or quench your sexual urges. The same way as it is already wrong to contemplate murdering your wife, it's already wrong to contemplate betraying her with another woman.
Thu, 21st Jul '05, 6:57pm
@Chev: I bet you don't even flirt. :rolleyes:
Where are all the party animals on this site? A little innocent flirting doesn't hurt anyone. So long as you don't actually think about doing anything, it's just a simple compliment on someone's looks. Some women actually need strangers to say these things to validate their self-image (sad but true).
Thu, 21st Jul '05, 10:07pm
So long as you don't actually think about doing anything, it's just a simple compliment on someone's looks.Hey, what's wrong with complimenting someone on looks, smarts, conversation skills or anything? Come on, it's perfectly normal, even between guys or with blood relations. Sexual conversations are a whole different thing from this. You can tell a nun she's pretty, so what? It's bad when the conversation is had to jerk off verbally or prepare the ground for an improper relationship but nothing is wrong with telling people you like them or appreciate them.
Some women actually need strangers to say these things to validate their self-image (sad but true).Everyone needs a kind word every now and then. I guess a sincere and polite compliment is always welcome, whoever and wherever you are. Or at least should be. I've been complimented on my looks by married ladies twice my age, so what?

Thu, 21st Jul '05, 10:22pm
What I interpret Chev saying/meaning about this can be summed up in three words:
you gotta wanna!
As a (former) Catholic, I can say that even *thinking* about doing *anything* to/with someone is a mortal sin. I could get into a long quote from George Carlin about this, but anyone familiar with him probably knows what I'm talking about. For those who don't, here's a short version of how many *sins* there are in one grope of Helen:
1)To want to feel up Helen
2)To plan to feel up Helen
3)To think about feeling up Helen
4)To find a place to do this to Helen
5)To take her to said place
6)To finally feel up Helen
"Six sins in one feel, man!" To which George also said, "If you wake up and think, I wanna go to 42nd Street and commit a mortal sin! save your cab fare; you just did!"
@Fel - Party animal right here, sweety. I've been stocking up on Pounce[tm] and Whiskas Temptations [tm]. :grin: :yum:
Thu, 21st Jul '05, 10:28pm
@kuemper: Stage #1 depends on interpretation. Literally, it would have to be sinful but different people understand "want" as different things. For a mortal sin, you need 1) grave matter, 2) full knowledge, 3) full consent. Attraction alone doesn't carry #3 and possibly not #2. In short, you need to make a choice for it to be a sin; it has to depend on your will. If wanting to feel up Helen is a positive act of will, then it's sinful (internalising a disordered desire is sinful). ;) And I think stage 3 probably happens before stage 2. :D
And yeah, let's throw a party. I'd really use some boozing and some waltzing.

Thu, 21st Jul '05, 10:48pm
@chev - As I said, listen to some old Carlin for the full take on this. He goes into greater detail than I. And, since we differ on what defines an 'affair', I'll leave it at that. :) With your inherent loquaciousness, this is why you remind me of my hubby. :p
Party? I'll bring the cookies! Chocolate chip anyone?
Thu, 21st Jul '05, 11:13pm
@kuemper: Different understanding of affair? I mean, what's yours? I mean, for me, anything romantic and/or even slightly sexual has to be an affair and I don't understand the view that, for example, swapping love letters, kissing and getting romantic is not affair if there's no intercourse in it (just swapping compliments, flowers, gifts etc, hugging and kissing on the cheek doesn't cut it but any degree of sexual interaction does already and come on, it's not like kissing isn't cheating). I don't think you hold that view, so...? But if you prefer to leave it alone, I won't complain. :p
Thanks for the chips. Want some booze? I'm sure you do. Come, take a shot. :evil:

Since I've started taking care of my mom, I've let the dishes slide. First it was a week, then two between the times I did the dishes. I think this batch has been in there since I registered. :lol: So now, with a little more than a month's worth of dishes in the sink, I'm trying to clean them all before my uncle comes up for my grandfather's birthday, which is only TWO days away! :help:
As I've delved down to the depths of the dirty dishes, I've uncovered smells that have made me gag uncontrollably. I had to turn on a fan to get enough of the smell out of the kitchen to be able to keep working. An unfortunate side-effect of this is that the smell has to go somewhere. So instead of reducing the smell, I'm just spreading it around the entire HOUSE, and now I'm having a hard time finding my appetite so I can have some dinner. :sick: I'm going to try to have dinner upstairs, which hopefully isn't as putrid. Wish me luck. :(

Yea, Harbour boy, I was working on a farm at the time. As whoever posted after yours pointed out, yes I was slightly careless, and ended up falling awkwardly. Can still work in short stretches, but it's a pain in the ass (and lower back again).
Taking the test now...
Congratulations. You got a perfect score. You're not an idiot. Do evolution a favor, and have a million kids. Alright? Thanks.

But I don't believe in evolution, but ladies, if you're up for helping me with the kids part...

Mind you, I expected to get at least one wrong. Normally however simple the maths test, there's some kind of law that states that I must make at least one stupid mistake. Usually forgetting to carry a one somewhere.

Fri, 22nd Jul '05, 2:52pm
I'm not in the states, the doc advised me not to go if I didn't want to compromise my Bachelor 2 year, so I with pain in my heart I decided to stay home and go to bed at 11 p.m. each day, have long walks at the beach and do some therapeutic gardening.
Had to stay away from the net for a week as well.
Also, a friend of mine just got told by a guy that seemed to be interested in her that his friends thought she was not good enough for him (I don't really know the guy, only saw him a couple of times). Because, here it comes, the clothes she wears aren't expensive enough and she doesn't throw around enough money, yes, I was wrapped in stunned silence for a couple of moments too. This is the kind of crap you see happening between 15 year olds in bad teen movies. Somehow women that have a strong personality and brains and dress in a fashionable and original mixture of all sorts of clothes, cheap and expensive instead of just wearing classic all tommy hilfiger or ralph lauren outfits are weird. sure, I have a few pieces of the above mentioned designers, but just because I like them, and if I want to wear them with torn jeans, I won't be stopped by anyone, If I want to wear them with a glimmering sequined skirt and high heels, I won't be stopped by anyone. Bah. I guess It's because we don't let people walk all over ourselves and we don't giggle and smile when a guy speaks to us. I guess that's "intimidating".
The thing is my friend can't take things like that, this is yet another dent in her heavily battered armor. She didn't pass her exams, broke up with her boyfriend of 2 years, a lot of friends are abandoning her etc.. Puh.
I am outraged and in a mood to butcher all snobbishly dressed guys under 20.
Anyway, good to be back. :)

Fri, 22nd Jul '05, 5:02pm
@Uytuun: That guy is a funny upstart excuse of a snob. Just about everyone (apart from such morons) knows that part of the charm is hiding the label instead of waving it around. In fact, there is some tommy hillfigger in my wardrobe but the huge label (which is, apparently, the main feature of hillfigger clothes) pisses me off so much I never wear it anymore. Besides, it's casual wear, intended to be casual and not exceptional, so what the hell the fuss is about is beyond me.
I guess It's because we don't let people walk all over ourselves and we don't giggle and smile when a guy speaks to us. I guess that's "intimidating".Yeah, most young adult males can't comprehend anything more complex than a sassy opening "conversation" from a soap opera. Anything more challenging than instant giggle at their very entrance and they move on to the next target. Better for you. ;) :thumb:
Hugs for your friend and hope she's going to recover soon. I'm sure she'll do fine. There's always the "Semptember Campaign", as we call it here (allusion to Semptember '39, hehe). My most sincere congrats for getting rid of the moron, as well. That's a reason to throw a party, not to cry.
One more thing. A girl with class is known by the fact she doesn't need much to make herself look great. I've seen girls completely outfit for a formal ball for 50 euro total and defeat big spenders. Shopping for and matching stuff is the art, not spending. :p
I am outraged and in a mood to butcher all snobbishly dressed guys under 20.That would be too easy on him. And too much bother. Just let him end up with the sassy type he so adores. :D

"Harrius Potter et Philosophi Lapis" Latin Edition?
Apparently latin isn't as dead a language as I thought. I extend an apology to all the latin speakers on the site.
Sat, 23rd Jul '05, 7:10am
phi·los·o·pher - N.
1. somebody who studies philosophy: somebody who seeks to understand and explain the principles of existence and reality
2. thinking person: a thinker who deeply and seriously considers human affairs and life in general
(i.e. some boring old fart that studies the bible and other meaningless crap - or the dude in BG2 that gets sliced in two in Trademeet)
sor·cer·er - N.
1. wizard: somebody who is believed or claims to have magical powers
(i.e. the little twerp that needs a twig to cast magic.)
Just thought I'd share that with you. :rolling:
Sat, 23rd Jul '05, 7:23am
(i.e. some boring old fart that studies the bible and other meaningless crap - or the dude in BG2 that gets sliced in two in Trademeet)
Hey! I consider myself to be a philosopher, and I resent the implication. I am an interesting young fart who couldn't give a 'meaningless crap' about the bible. :D

Sat, 23rd Jul '05, 11:34am
Actually, it tends to be theologians who study the Bible. Philosophers like to work from first principles, and explain things by pure reason.
Also, the Philosopher's Stone has been a semi-mythological object of alchemy long before Rowling wrote a book about it. No magic necessarily involved in its creation, as far as we know; there's no reason for the American publishers to suddenly dumb down the name to the Sorcerer's Stone. Besides, the topic of everlasting mortal life is a fairly philosophical one, don't you think? ;)

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is the original British title of the book. However, the publishers felt that the majority of the American public wouldn't understand the reference to the philosopher's stone ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philosopher%27s_stone ), so the title for the American edition of the book was changed. Justifiably?
Sat, 23rd Jul '05, 1:53pm
Lamely. They should have tried to educate those ignorant Americans, not dumbed it down :p

...I woke up an hour ago... where has my beloved saturday gone? Im never drinking, smoking or dropping ever again...
Sat, 23rd Jul '05, 7:55pm
Well, we had to change *something*. American television has stolen all the good (?) Brit programming and simply changed the title. It probably was some schmo in marketing who thought 'sorcerer' sounded '2 kewl' and 'philosopher' boooooring! Or, 'philosopher' doesn't look right on the posters. Try 'sorcerer' instead. :cool:
Sat, 23rd Jul '05, 8:16pm
I'm guessing it was alliteration: Sorcerer's Stone -> SS. (SS -> Sorcerous Sundries :hmm: )
I am sick and tired of those despicable Meow Mix commercials. :mad Don't they know the kind of filth they're spewing over the airwaves? Me*w *eow m*ow meo* indeed! I can only hope that they pasted together the various sounds, because if one cat deliberately spewed such a string of profanity, he ought to be banned from television.

Whew! I skinned a knuckle yesterday, so I couldn't do the dishes anymore (lest I bleed in the water or on the dishes), and so I waited in fear for the relatives to show up. Fortunately I managed to keep the relatives out of the kitchen, and the Glade (R) Plug-Ins I scattered around the house covered up the smell! :D Now I have enough time to finish.
You ever have one of those moments when you instinctively do the stupidest thing imaginable? One pot I found (before the knuckle skin) seemed odd, so in order to see if it really was the major smell-maker, I brought it up to my nose and SNIFFED IT!!! :sick: I spent the next two minutes cleaning the puke out of the sink. Whatever sludge had been in that pot (I had to keep my head turned away when I emptied it out) ate away half of the finish from the bottom of it. :whoa:

@Kit: I didn't forget, but what's the point of renewing it when it expired shortly after I left for Crete? I wasn't going to be able to reap the benefits of having the SPS account while I was away, so I figured it would be better for me to wait until I got back.
On another topic, my body is not liking the readjustment to North American food. I miss Greek food so much.

That was an awesome battle. The enemies had quite impressive levels compared from my time. My archmage got attacked from start by the freaking hero-killing blademaster, so one ally helped me and the other harassed his closest. Then the two of us moved to join in but the enemies started gathering, so I flared my allies to get the hell away from there and meet in the North elf's base. Tadaaaa... one elf down, flared the other elf and quick march! Defend (anti-missile defensive formation) researched for my sweet footies in the meantime and the other elf went poof. Didn't even get to see the freaking orc's base.

Then we've got the senior ball at our college. Then straight after that I'm headed off for a week reffing for our 1st XI girls team while they're at tournament. Then come back and get straight into Study! That lasts until mid novermber, when the exams start, until mid december. Then I seriously have to start thinking about next year... either go to Uni for 5 or so years or take a few years off to travel overseas.

Mosquitoes. They got my left index finger, my righty pinky toe and my arms. IIRC there was only one and my idea was to let it sting once so that it would die. Apparently, I underestimated the little bug.

@Uytuun: I hate those little buggers. They always go for me, it seems. Although I thought it was bees that die when they sting (it rips the poison sac out, taking half the unfortunate insect's innards with it); mosquitoes bite to feed. I've been done several times by a single mossie on more than one occasion; usually they go along my arm or leg, leaving a nice join-the-dots style pattern!
Good luck with the mutation; any thoughts on an appropriate X-men type super power? ;)

I seem to be in some sort of slime atm, haven't spotted a tail yet, but I think I might be growing wings, So Tal, I'm afraid I'm going to have to take that new portrait of yours.

Uytuun, it seems you've levelled up in Dragon Disciple from all that studying. ;)

Maths is evil! EVIL I tell ye! It's the heathen gods that plagued us with this abomination! To arm! We must burn all maths book!
I.e I fail my maths.... Arrrgh

ofelix, i feel your pain!
can anyone recommend a (for lack of a better word) powerful movie that I could see, one with a happy ending? :D
I saw The Butterfly Effect 4 days ago and it's still depressing me! I don't feel too bad at sad endings, but those bittersweet ones especially concerning girls, are the worst :eek: last time this happened to me was after finishing Hobb's Farseer trilogy..
can anyone recommend any? I gotta get this stuff outta my head :|
Tue, 26th Jul '05, 11:04pm
Aaaaa! Tal is a ****ing dragon now! :eek:
I leave for less than 12 hours and *HE* gets transformed into a dragon?
/me shakes his hand towards the heavens
Where's *MY* pair of wings?!?!? :rolling:

@ Ofelix: you've got a point there - the pythagoreans of Ancient Greece did adopt the pentagram as their symbol, tatooing it on the palms of their hands to signify membership. So, it could be argued that the very people who invented maths (at least as the modern world knows it) were indeed in league with Satan. Add to that the power struggle that happened when someone discovered the square root of 2 (being irrational, it can't be expressed as a fraction, which went against the belief in the groups originally that all numbers could be expressed as fractions), in which people died for no real reason, and you could well be right.
:pope: Maths is evil I say! Burn the number-loving witches and their satanically dull textbooks! :evil:
Wed, 27th Jul '05, 2:22am
Hey hey hey! Math has many good uses. It's required for just about every science there is. :geezer:
Some people take it too far, though. Math for it's own sake is the bane of sane people everywhere.
Wed, 27th Jul '05, 4:17am
Argh!!! I am so mad I could one punch a Balrog. Stupid landlord, stupid moving, stupid of all stupid and more stupid stuff. ARGH!!!!!!!!!

i hate incompetence. friggin stupid underlings..
Wed, 27th Jul '05, 5:26am
We spent four hours this afternoon with no electricity. Kinda boring...
Wed, 27th Jul '05, 6:36am
I never noticed before. Tal really is a f***ing dragon. :eek:
In case any were wondering, my anger for my landlord was due to her not allowing me to take my sattelite with me when I leave because it is attatched to the place. And she said if I did take it, I would be criminaly charged. At times like this, I wish there was a smilie for fingering someone, because that sums up my emotions in this case.
Wed, 27th Jul '05, 6:44am
Err, who paid for it? If you did, wouldn't it make the sattelite your personal property?
Wed, 27th Jul '05, 6:48am
One would think so, but apparently I gave it up when I attatched it to her property. And she won't even consider paying me for it.
Wed, 27th Jul '05, 6:57am
Ummm, that doesn't sound right. Is there a legal service you could call? Dunno how it works there, but here there's a referral list of attorneys that will give discount (or sometimes free) consultations...
Wed, 27th Jul '05, 6:59am
That doesn't seem right. Don't you have any lawyer friends that could check into your situation so you could force the harpy landlady to be reasonable?
Wed, 27th Jul '05, 8:20am
Did you keep any reciept's for your satelite dish. If you did then even if you did attatch it to her property then it's still your's. The only things that you wouldn't be able to take should be listed on your lease agreement, that's not a permanent fixture. I'd advise taking the satelite dish and when SHE goes to press charges just present them with a reciept saying that you bought the satelite on such day for x dollars and she'll be forced to drop the charges OR buy it from you for whatever you want to sell it to her for.
Wed, 27th Jul '05, 10:28am
Marcus is getting his first two teeth! :roll:
Bummer about the satellite dish, Jag. I'd get some quick legal advice from an actual lawyer before giving up, if I were you. And if nothing else, there's always the cover of darkness, some black clothing, and a long ladder...
Wed, 27th Jul '05, 11:27am
1 day before the test.. definitely going to have to start studying now..

Humidity is evil.
Other than that, I'm just enjoying relaxing and doing nothing. It makes a nice change from digging in the heat.

Does anyone know who Rikki-Tikki-Tavi is?
Wed, 27th Jul '05, 6:00pm
The wonderful world of wikipedia has all the answers. ;)
Wed, 27th Jul '05, 6:06pm
Rikki-Tikki-Tavi was my absolute favorite story when I was a little girl. I have no idea how many times I had it read to me or my parents told me renditions of it. I think I used to even pretend I was a mongoose.
Wed, 27th Jul '05, 7:55pm
By the GODS it's sooooo gooood to be back.
@Tal Noticed you got a new avatar. Nice.
@Laiwethel So how's Crete?
Wed, 27th Jul '05, 7:59pm
My Maths tutor will arrive soon. I hope she can help me retake that stupid math test. Urrgh I hate math and the test is the 3th august.
Wed, 27th Jul '05, 8:03pm
@ Ofelix I wish you lots of luck. I also hate math(not to good at it either).
Wed, 27th Jul '05, 11:40pm

It's about time you came back! :thumb:
The BoM can't survive long without your misspelled spam. :lol: :rolling:
Thu, 28th Jul '05, 12:39am
Ofelix, maths is great. People just get a mental block over it. You'll be OK.
Thu, 28th Jul '05, 2:53am
Welcome back, Ara. Get some rest and tell us all about it.
Math is necessary. We can't get by without it. I love it. But most folks don't undertand it.
Thu, 28th Jul '05, 3:04am
Welcome back. Where ya been?
(Just realized my response is a day behind. Gah.)
Thu, 28th Jul '05, 4:14am
Woah! I leave for like a week or two and now Tal's a dragon? What have you guys done to him?!?!
Thu, 28th Jul '05, 4:19am
Rikki-Tikki-Tavi was in the Jungle Book. The Mongoose I believe, but that is sketchy...
My buddy's fiance is expecting, and was due Monday. No baby yet. Uncle Redneck is getting nervous!

I made two awsome pizzas for supper. My family is quite happy about that. Home-made pizza is so much better than delivery although a little too much work.
Thu, 28th Jul '05, 11:37am
To hell with shaving razors. Five cuts. :mad: My freaking face is bleeding. What am I going to look like in the evening?
Thu, 28th Jul '05, 11:37am

It's been raining here since early in the morning... so depressing... :(
Thu, 28th Jul '05, 3:37pm
Send some of it here, it's 35° C in the shade here, and humid as hell. :grr:
Thu, 28th Jul '05, 3:45pm
Sounds like you got our weather from the past few days, Tal. We had some massive thunderstorms last night, and today is just gorgeous.
Thu, 28th Jul '05, 4:09pm
I actually like the rain... In winter, when I'm home by the fire :D
But I'm still at work and have to cycle back home, and it doesn't look like it's going to stop any soon.

Lord Garak - Crete was amazing.
After several days of hot and humid weather, we got some major thunderstorms last night that have now cooled things down. It's now beautiful weather here.
Thu, 28th Jul '05, 4:50pm

Thu, 28th Jul '05, 5:27pm
The weather here is not 1/2 bad. Not too much heat and not too much cool. I can sit upstairs and type on my comp. without worrying about cookin its organs and I can still go outside without a jacket.
Thu, 28th Jul '05, 5:56pm
If I didn't have an avatar I would have a pearl. My favorite gem.
I also dropped the Nightshadow from my name. Don't need it and I want Nakia to be exclusively mine! :D :D

Weather here is 30 degrees C. It's annoying.
@el timtor Had major problem with the PC. It would connect to the Net but that's about it, some darn virus. Have spent time writing more for Dragon Armor and have started a SW story. Monday I'm going to Viena and I'm staying there a week.

Finally, some peace and quiet to get back into a North American frame of mind!
My brain is still in Greece, and I haven't had a chance to get it back to this continent until now. Then again, I'm not sure if I want my brain on this continent.
