I think I spend too much time in stoner/hippie stores. I discovered today that I can recognize the products(not just bongs, thank you very much) of separate stoner stores by their smell. I actually did that in front of my mom, which was kind of embarassing. I was like *sniff* oh, you got me this from Kustom Kulture! The store with the giant wall of bongs! I mean…not that I go there a lot…

My gripe: Why do people insist on lighting fireworks on Christmas? I was just sitting here in my house minding my own, when all of a sudden a LOUD bang sounded outside… Instantly, my PTSD got the best of me, and I started freaking out, and checking myself for bleeding. When I finally realized what was going on, I looked outside to find about 15 drunk guys lighting fireworks next door.

This as been going on for about 30 minutes now, and I'm slowly going mad. Its kind of pathetic I know, but I cant even enjoy fireworks anymore. To hell with Christmas, Iraq, the Army, and my neighbors.

Now I'm sitting here, listening to the Beatles, and trying to calm down, and its not working. :[

Skoolmunkee is evil. You all saw it. Don't pretend you didn't!

I was going to do a feature, but then I thought it'd get almost no views at all on Chrissy day, so wouldn't have been a very good pressie… Like a normal feature, but no where near as good.

Ah well, I love this thread. It's nice and social for us DD people who're all over the place.

————————-

I do Have a small rant though;
My sister and I seem to have diverged in taste a lot. For presents I got her all of Sealab 2021 and Aquateam hungerforce. She just came back from Singapore with a swag of cheap DVDs for me:
Knocked up, Semi-pro, around the world in 80 days, Wild hogs, Wintalkers, The Bourne ultimatum, Mamma Mia, Step Brothers, The Holy Grail, Love Guru, The Bunny House, Quantam of Solace, Wall E, Don't mess with Zohan, and Meet the Spartans.

It was marvellous to see her again, But there are only 3 in that list, at best (grail, Wall E and maybe Zohan), that I'd ever watch normally. But I'll watch them all because they're gifts. Still, it's weird for someone you grew up with to have such different tastes in things, and to be so different from you in every single way… We're very different people.

i actually post her when i'm drunk, cause i get bored. out here i'm on a seperate schedule from my friends, so when we get drunk, they can go pass out, but i still have to wait 5-6 hours to go to bed, so i dont wake up too early for work.

and it's cool, i have been making alot of non-rant replies. so apology accepted but unneccesary.

ironically no rant

Oh you guyyyyyyys :kitty:

Man I still feel really bad about being mean yesterday. I didn't want to check the thread. :[ Sometimes I'm too much of an on-topic Nazi. It seems like I do something pretty jerky to someone every couple months.

I still think a new thread is a good idea though (109 pages is kinda long too). The Social Thread: The Internet Is Listening. All the fun of the rant thread, but wider appeal!


My rant is that I've been playing Fable 2, but I'm at a point where I just need to accrue money and the only way I can do that is by letting game time pass. I can earn while the xbox is off, but at a reduced rate… so I'm gonna have to wait for like 10 days before I can do much else in the game because I need a million dollars. :[

Edit: I've bought a bunch of real estate, it still takes time for the proceeds to come in. I've done a bunch of math on it but the best thing I can do now is just leave it be and have a bunch of money when I turn the game back on. Jobs are pretty much a pittance at this stage. :)

Buy places in the game, that'll make you earn more faster.

I started buying houses, shops, and stalls during the beginning of the game and so now if I wait a few hours I get almost 100,000 gold.

Or doing jobs could also help.

I worked my midnights and missed the holiday get togethers with family. But I did get the food.

My brother worked the whole holiday too.

Since I have no plans for New Year's, I'm also working New Year's Eve and New Year's Day sitting at my laptop editing my comic's script or reading a book.

I had to run to the library to get more reading material when I put in for the extra hours. So let's see The Cambrian Age and the Burgess Shale, the 19th Century Jihad in the Sudan, The Royal Welch Fusilers in the American Revolution…(not a mistake, that is the offical regimental spelling) then the history of American archeology and the Americas before the arrival of Europeans…
