I think I might be moe.

I went to give blood today. I'm pretty good at bleeding, so I walked in without a worry. I had forgotten about the nurses. 98% of all the nurses I've ever met have had this 'aw, look at her being adorkable, I must protect her!' reaction to me. The other 2% is my mom and she's a 99 pound badass, so she doesn't give a shit as long as I'm not chopped in two. Which can be kind of nice, because having people worry about you is annoying.

Anyway, first the doctor wanted to double check a bunch of stuff. Apparently all the healthy looking stats on my digital chart didn't fit my (adorable, weak) appearance. She made me drink a bottle of water, despite me being perfectly hydrated (and wanting a bathroom break really badly). The nurse who hooked me up was nice, but afterwards she made me stay in the chair and drink my tea there. I wasn't allowed to leave the chair until she gave the okay. I was feeling fine by the way. After waiting for a while and getting bored, I sighed. Another nurse noticed this, and quickly dropped the chair back, because I obviously wasn't feeling well despite my protests. Two nurses and a doctor later, I was finally allowed out of the chair, but the nurse wouldn't let me walk away unsupervised or even unsupported. She told yet another nurse not to let me leave and to check up on me every now and then. Everyone kept offering me something to drink, but since they already made me drink over a litre in less than an hour, the only thing I really, really wanted was to go to the bathroom (again).  

In the end I was able to flee when the current overprotective nurse turned her back to me to make some more tea. Then I walked to the other side of town and got some awesome ice cream (to make up for the really shitty cookies they made me eat).

Edit: ugh, they made me drink too much and now I have a headache...

Wow, that's a real mess, like something out of a tv show... Good to hear both sisters are all right.

I just want to say that I think the music pack for this game is the single greatest piece of DLC I have ever encountered.

The free DLC, Makina Domain, is pretty cool too. It took three trips and multiple months of synthesis, but I just slaughtered everything in there.

I'm just several endings away from platinum.... but I'm not going to bother with that. The past sixty hours were fun and that's enough for me. I'll youtube the endings I missed.

My brother and uncle are organising a family gettogether, but they keep neglecting to send me the e-mails. So while others already know when and where is it, what it's going to cost and what the payment deadline is, I haven't received any information outside of what mom told me. My brother says he can't send me anything, because he doesn't know my e-mail address, but I've given it to him personally more than once. Yesterday he told me that's not good enough, he doesn't use paper anymore and it got lost. He still lives at home ( I don't, but I usually visit twice a week) and my e-mail address is also in my parents' addressbook. I guess I should just take the hint and stop asking about it. He doesn't want me to come...

Of all the articles in the first post, this was the only one that surprised me:

Quote
A poll revealed that almost all teachers have been forced to work in classrooms where temperatures exceed 24C, while a third have taught in 30C.

Does it matter? You can't control the weather and airco isn't everything either. Sometimes it rains all day and you arrive at school all wet, because your raincoat couldn't handle it. Something you're in the wrong classrooms during the wrong time of year and the room temperature rises to 33 degrees celsius. You just learn to cope and keep on studying. Learning enviroments are rarely ideal, but the weather is the least we should worry about.

If there was anything (or anyone) that ruined classes for me, it would be fellow stupid who wouldn't stop messing around and teacher who gave up on trying to correct them. I guess it's easier to just complain about the weather than to actually improve the situation. I wonder who's lazier in that situation, the students or the adults...

I don't remember my years of secondary education fondly, but they did teach me something useful and that's self-discipline. Atleast I understand that you often have to do things you don't enjoy to accomplish something in life.

I'm glad this wasn't anything like that. It was a guild thing, though it's not something they've done before. This was a nuisance (and illegal if they didn't get permission), but in the end it's all in good fun. The fair is the most important social gathering of the year in this village after all.

Edit: Looks like they won't use the sirene again next year. The thing was so loud it could be heard the next town over. Some of the old folks got confused and thought the Germans were attacking.

I just woke up to something that sounded somewhere in between something to racing passed you to break the sound barrier and failing, and the civil defence sirene. Turns out it was some asshole riding through town using a sirene... for I don't know what. I guess he could be a guild member trying to gather people at the fair grounds on the outskirts of town. I understand the guild is important, but this is ridiculous. It's early in the morning, I wanted to sleep some more!

I think it finally stopped. After half an hour it finally stopped.

In From the Abyss I found a ring that absorbed all fire damage in a fire dungeon in which all the enemies only had fire attacks. Stayed there for a bit longer than absolutely necessary and squished the of the (short, short) game.

I don't like it myself (I...just don't think BoA has a nice voice =/  It's a sappy-ass tune too).  BUT.  I *adore* the end credits instrumental version of it -- it's perfect.

Even my pet rabbit likes that one. Opening song? Ran around the room thumping, frustrated I didn't get myself to safety. Ending song? Sat sideways on the couch with his little ears straight up so he could see and hear better. My bunny has a good taste in music :D Then he went back to eating the furniture.

Appropriate repost.



Aw, now you make me miss my gaming buddy even more! We were right in the middle of a co-op Tales of Vesperia playthrough when he moved away. During that playthrough, we had a game we called something like 'Why this is totally like MLP'. (Well, it should be the other way around because Vesperia came first, but hey, who cares about the details?) Estelle is the best Fluttershy cosplayer ever.

Move closer. :D
We can be buddehs.

I seriously need a gaming buddy that isn't my brother.  My last on stopped gaming, and the one before that became a hipster asshole.

I know how you feel. Mine moved to Germany... Oh, and there's this girl I'm trying to play Tetris 3D with, but there's these really weird lag. So we send letters about our cats instead.

Something like that happened to a friend's  dad once, only it wasn't just shit, there was also a nest with dead, rotting baby birds mixed in. So... it could be worse?

Golden Sun: Dark Dawn. Got it from a bargain bin. It's kinda fun, but protagonists need to STFU. Everything that comes ouf of their mouths, out of anyone's mouth really, is just so boring! The only reason I don't click through the text as fast as possible is because I want to collect the red words. It's not like I read the entries, but atleast it makes me feel as if I'm doing something while those pieces of carton yap on and on and on...

My thoughts: That's nice, but I don't think I could care less. Nice one, Dice!

And now I want a silly JRPG where random encounter are you and your foes battling in a breakdance competition.

Well, atleast some heroes are already dressed like they belong on the dance floor. (All the other ones katamari'd through a Hot Topic.)

AC is great, if it's used properly (and actually working). If doors are opened often or even kept open, there's not much the AC can do. At the con where I always died because of nasty mermaid air, someone thought it would be a great idea to open some doors to let some frech air in, because letting heat in is such an awesome way of keeping a building cool...
