Mmmmmm, Logy.

Screens are really impressive.  Given how Rorona was a catastrophe of a title, there was really nowhere to go but up, but I do like the series for (seemingly) improving on every new title lately.  Graphically, I think we're again another step up.

As far as I can tell, the only brand of Enix's that still lives today is Dragon Quest.... and it lives on like the tumor it is.

I'd kill to see Mischief Makers make a come back, that game was sick.

Stomach flu. Done a lot of sleeping and barfing today.

And that, as they say, are the haps.


I had it coming down when I was driving home from school... I was practically in a fetal position except for the petal on the gas/brake... Needless to say, for road safety purposes, I pulled over and called my folks to grab me, they arrived just as I was "upchucking" over the side of the car.

Story continues, read at own nasty risk
My mum proved her love that night that.  I took off my necklace since it was bothering me while I was trying to sleep off the disease, and it fell into my... "waste disposal bin".  I told my mum, and the dear woman fished it out and cleaned it for me... and after that I learned what "love" is (specifically parental love).

Get better, it doesn't tickle!

^ I love those pop/rock mashups.  Impressive one-take (you gotta know the fuck out of your cues I'm sure)

A metal version of Barbie Girl...it's actually really awesome.

I've been bringing in some of the worst numbers at work lately.... I used to be the best (till they told me I was the best...goddamn jinx!!)

Then I come home to see I am missing two invites to party and have some fun.

Now I am copying notes from a textbook.

I was feeling poopy till my puppy barged in and said "what up" in her doggy eyes.

I played Legend of Mana recently.  To my surprise I opened a treasure box and found a "Virgin's Sigh".... I don't know what to do with it.

This game is so so random.  I honestly think a remake/rescript could help it.  Also, I don't get blackmsithing, there doesn't seem to be values attached to anything.

"Never judge a person until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes" seems to be an apt phrase here. Relationships are seldom the same for any two people and I, for one, try not to judge even my best friends relationships, it seldom turns out good for any of us, even if I am trying to be helpful. Honestly is sometimes about the persons perception. Hope that makes sense. On a happier note for me after putting in 72 hours this week I am off ALL weekend, yeah me!

I don't think there's any doubt about Ashton's "bumpy" (for lack of better words) love-life, the dispute is against "women having an easier time getting men".  Which I say is false unless we're talking about sexual gratification -- not actual "relationships", and constantly bringing "woman's advantages".  Also, Ashton, Canadian law is somewhat more critical in regards to uttering threats against someone (not regards to making an arrest, but getting cops to at least mediate the situation or what have you -- and in which case, I see nothing wrong with leaving someone who makes a threat).

Anyways.  Women are she-devils.  I'm moving on.

Lots of work to do today, but I began the morning with sunlight shining into the bathroom as I shower and washed my hair with a lovely peppermint shampoo-poo. :D
It was perfect.

Ever have someone threaten to accuse you of rape and/or abuse if you want to break up with them? Yeah.

That's inexcusable.  If anything, I'm blaming you for (I assume) *not* leaving that kind of situation or calling the police if that kind of stuff escalated... no one should behave that way, and if she tried anything, you should get police involved if she did anything so severe.  If I'm rolling my eyes it's because I wouldn't put up with that.

There's a very good reason most of the time I don't talk about this stuff, because people go judgmental on me, with the eye rollings and the boo hoos and the be a mans. It sure sounds easy when you have the benefit of third party objectivity and not being in a shitty relationship, but then, if I were a woman, would I be getting the same eye rollings, boo hoos, and be a (wo)mans? I doubt it. This inequity has bothered me for some time now, especially when people have told me to 'get real problems,' and 'check my privilege' (??!?).

I'd be saying the same thing to either sex.  I think a man and woman would be stupid to stay in a one-sided relationship.  You keep talking about "woman advantages" usually in terms of "men's privileges", and it's annoying and way too vague.  What advantages?  I ackowledge a middle-road in there somewhere, but socially men are doing terribly well compared to women (physical upkeep is more extensive for women, men are the bigger sports stars world-wide, men usually procure better and better paying jobs, women are still seen as promiscuous if she tries sleeping around, men are considered just players, women are still bogged down with more household responsibilities usually only levied if she can meet a man's social/job standing).  Unless you're talking about how easy it is for a woman to "hook up" sexually, I don't know what you mean (I agree, she probably just has to announce she wants sex).  But if you're just talking about them being able to like someone, then believe me, I've talked to enough love-torn women asking if he "loves me/love's me not)".

I'm not saying one gender or race or whatevs is all this or all that, I'm well aware of the fact that there exist perfectly normal, decent women who would treat others like human beings. However, I've never had a relationship with one of these women and I am not going to chance another abusive relationship just because people keep telling me there are better things out there when I just keep getting the short end of the stick. Seriously, it's been 15 years.

I'm taking on some of Yoda's vague and somewhat bad advice here, but you've gotta man up a bit if women or even people are taking advantage of you; if this keeps happening (for 15 years?!) you gotta make sure they don't see you as a chump.  

My advice to all men: Be a man.
Nah, I just hate that statement of "Be a man", so I made a bad joke. But seriously, it's an unfair statement. Your approach works for you, but I can't walk into a bar or club and use your technique, it wouldn't work for me. It's not because you're more of a man, but because we're different men.  

Just putting that out there.

Still not listening.

Who said I did any of that anyway?

To Agent's defence, I didn't really get where you were going with that either.

Y'know what's funny about that is I had a Michael Jackson song playing at that time ("Smooth Criminal")

Actually, it does help to be a bit "androgynous" in how you generally behave and compose yourself.  Being 100% man and 100% woman is a sort-of ideal that no one should fall into completely.

dropping out of life for one year and getting the fuck out.

I think I worked a grand total of 35 hours this week because my test lead kept telling me to quit testing and it's like, fuck it, you don't want me working, I'm going home.

I could really go with dropping off the face of the earth for a year.

Also I used to think that fybromyalgia wasn't real but now I wonder if it's like a subset of benign fasciculation syndrome.

Also back when I was in college I remember writing a pro-men's right movement essay, 'cause I thought the men's rights movement was /against/ traditional male gender roles. WHOOPS.

I think fybromyalgia is fake in so far my mum overplays hers, or rather, doesn't really try to make any efforts besides "sleeping it off"...all...day...long.

I'm surprised you thought that with regards to male gender roles.  It's kinda funny, one of those fun things to look back it.

My level of eye-rolling is getting too intense. I'm going to bed.

I can only imagine what part (I'm even throwing in my responses here -- but man I hate railing on any sex/race/whatever without knowing people come in all colours -- bright and wonderful and shitty and puke-y).

Ashton:  Stop getting into shitty relationships, if ladies do that kind of shit to you, you W-A-L-K.

She has decided to go back to her ex. Once more I find myself alone. Good times.

This is why I no longer try to have relationships anymore.

Oh BOOO HOOOO (to Ashton more; sorry to hear Dagger).  Just wait for it and pursue when it happens.  Waiting for one good thing is better than 20 half-assed things (unless you're going into that....for "one night").
It's easier for a girl to get back in the dating scene, honestly. Sounds sexist, but it's true. :P

Besides, the long-term relationships I've been in have all been abusive and negative for me (with the added fun of being told I "deserved it" after the fact by various other women), so I really am not eager to go into another one just for the opportunity to let another woman abuse and mistreat me because they want to lord their power over me.

By comparison short term stuff have worked out for me much better; no demands, no abuse, nobody telling me I'm a horrible person for leaving an "obviously stressed out girl," just enjoyable, no strings attached fun times.

2 Best Pieces of Dating Advice Ever:  Be confident. Play hard to get.
I don't care if everyone's heard it before. 

Sure -- all a girl has to do is "put-out", but I hate that excuse that it's easier for them -- it's only easier in that regard for sexual biz-nass.  Women want more than that (most of the time), and the majority of the time it's not as easy to get.  Furthermore, while it may be a "womanly fault", men sometimes make it too easy to get with them, they're too eager or whatever.  If you don't act confident, then at the very least, play hard to get.  If you feel rewarded by a challenge in videogames or tests or whatever, so too do girls love a bit of a trial to make their (i guess) deep feeling and efforts worth it.  Worst is the fuckers who flirt with you in a club -- you know what they're thinking, and you can be on that in a New York minute, but when it's that damned transparent, what's the point?  Sex is great, and if it is easier for a girl to get, then make it worth it in other ways in how you compose yourself, how you get along, and how you communicate.

You make it sound too often like we're not torn by whether a fella likes us or not (there's highschool in a nut shell right there), and quite often, they don't like you or are completely oblivious to it (or fucking Jacqueline already got there before you...GRR).  You make it sound like we're monsters ready to put our hands in your pocket than in your hand.

Not that I have any REAL know-how about what's going on with you or whats happened, but if I had to guess I think you've has some bad relationships (or the few that really got at you) and extrapolate that into a generality about women; but men can be just as shitty sometimes too.  I think you're doing a good thing now by just "little dates".  And I agree, short-term works, it did for me for a while, till I realized I used and could use the same lines and moves every damn date and decided to settle down and stop pursuing people I "liked" but one who "drove me nuts" (and, coincidentally, made it a pain in the ass to flirt with -- the sad story of me trying to get with my current boyfriend was me buying movie passes and writing my phone number on it when all else failed... ).

I'd probably like to chat IRL with anyone here that isn't some sort of shut in. Meeting new people is my jam, as long as they're friendly

Doomed from the start, we are.  I'm a bitchy shut-in who just complains about being hungry all the time. D:

Life's too short to pine on one bimbo (try to lead by my example: the longest I've been saddest about an ex is a few days; afterwards it's replaced healthily with a "wtf was I thinking? I"M SINGLE AGAIN BABY!!!!")

Oddly enough, I'm more apprehensive for friendships, I feel like good versions of those are a harder find and I'm terrible with them.  I feel like even IF I met Yodes and Mongoosey and Kevadu, and Agent, and ANYONE, they'd start to hate me shortly after....like many others have.
One of by old best buddies was recently making plans with someone else...in front of me... o_o  Yaaaay.

I wish Dice or Akanbe would come over and help me out with this 30pack of beer and stupid collection of ps1/n64 games

Honestly, I'm "this close" ( |---| ) to just dropping out of life for one year and getting the fuck out.  Maybe Chicago, but maybe Scotland and fulfill my lifelong desire to meet some mythological creatures.
I feel like all I have right now are the few people in my life who make it good, money, freetime, health, happiness are all sauntering downwards.
