I'd just like the world to know that for the moment all the parts of my computer work again. This, of course, means that the cats are going to chew through something overnight, but for right now I've got everything, including my wacom tablet. Life is good.

It's 2AM and I've just gotten home from the hospital. Megan has now joined the persentage of the human race that is living without appendices.

So, it's been more than a year since I posted here. I've moved in with my girlfriend, had a life, saw my former roomates and best friends married to eachother and never felt the need to share much with the universe at large. But something as simple and mundane as an IRC roleplaying game and an associated chat channel has given me something that I feel I need outside commentary on. Or at least to stream of thought into public place where other peoples typing won't interupt my paragraphs.

Now, I probably won't be the first person to say that I have a caustic sense of humor, BUT, I'll certainly be the first one to agree. This usually isn't a problem but now I have a friend of a friend who's reading everything I write as if they were personal insults to his immediate family. A joke it being earlier in the evening here on the west coast because of the time zones is responded to like it was a tirade against every decision his parents ever made.

That's a big thing, but there are a lot of little things where one person will write something and I won't understand it the same way as everybody else in that channel. Some of these can be attributed to a lack of common memes and my own lazyness and others... actually it does come back to that common meme thing. A filter that seperates the us from the them and at the moment I'm pretty clearly still a them.

Now the question becomes, do I want to be an us? I have two friends and an aquantance with the us status, and I at least think I get along pretty well with three of the other people in that channel. It's possible that they dislike me just as much as the gentleman two paragraphs up and simply haven't let me know in quite such a stark manner. The game itself is interesting, but large parts of it take place in one or two person minisessions that I don't often take part in, (Reinforcing my outsider status), and my character is not one that I put a great deal of work into. (The characters that I have tend to have five or six variations/refinements that then bounce around in my head until I find a place for them to go. This is why Ard will kill me if I ever play another character named Taki or Ten again.) On the other hand, I was invited into the channel to play this game.


On the other other hand this is compleatly inconclusive, but as far as my thoughts have taken me.

Driving north within the hour to go babysit for parents and also visit girlfriend.

After living alone at the house for less than a week I've only managed to break it a little.

Also, cannot unsee xkcd. No matter how hard I try.

Off to a land where winter means more than the temperature dipping into the 40's and people getting killed because they don't know how to drive in the rain. Back next wednesday

Sleeping from 4:30 to 5:30 PM, 8-12, and 2:30-5 AM, not so much.

Feeling much better now.

My parents, being retired, have decided that they need a break from catching up on all the things they ment to do before they retired, and are going on vacation for two weeks at The Sea Ranch, and on short notice. This would normally be cause for me to post that I'd be going with them and being terminally bored or staying here in SoCal to take care of the dog. However, there is now a new option for me, since my girlfriend happens to live on the way to said vacation destionation. So, I'll be crashing there for two weeks, (un)fortunatly this means my evenings online will be a bit curtailed (having better things to do), but most of my games are cancelled anyway, so no huge loss there.

So, yesterday I got a BED WEDGEâ„¢ which is a big fluff inclined plain pillow so I could sleep with my head elevated, and not have to take a couch to do so. As anybody who has ever shared a room/bed with me knows I roll over constantly if there's room to do so, which there isn't on the couch I was using. But with the wedge I was back on my own twin long and well. Rolling over and sleeping on my side probably wasn't so great for my back or my jaw, but damn if I didn't spend the best part of 14 hours asleep.

I feel much more alert for it, but feeling alert while on pain meds does not actually equal actual alertness or cognitivity. So if I'm a bit slow to pick up on other people's April Fool's tomfoolery, well, at least I was awake to see it, right?

Horray! No horrible allergic reactions, no holes in my sinues or broken jaw and absolutly no dead! Which pretty much covers everything I could worry about going into getting my wisdom teeth out. I'm on some pretty strong painkillers though, which is good, I don't particularly want to feel like I've got four extra holes in my head, but it also means that I spend a great deal of time spaced out and/or asleep.So I had to wait for them to wear off a bit (to the point that I was aware the pain, but only as a minor incovience, to trust myself to be lucid enough to make this post.

I doubt I'll be online much tomorrow, and who knows about Friday, but for right now I'm just glad to be here.

My Brother: You know, Wachowski brothers need to make a Western with Matrix style effects...
Me: Only without any Jesus refrences, at al- Hey wait, Reboot already did that.
My brother: They did?
Me: Yeah, the best episode ever: The Episode With No Name.
My brother: Uh... I don't...
Me: Gun: Deathblossom Mode.
My brother: Oh... OH! Right.


So yeah, he's here for a week, borrowing my car and my computer and that's cool.
What's not so cool is that next week I'm trying to get my wisdom teeth out for the third time and hoping I don't have a horrible life threatening allergic reaction to anything this time. And while I'm normaly a pretty, okay, extreemly laid back kind of guy I can feel my stress levels going up and it's not so fun. Mostly my body wants more sleep, but I've also, as anybody who's tried to talk to me in the past few days has probably noticed turned into an EVEN BIGGER flake than normal.

Also, had a sort of nifty dream last night that was part text, part PS1 ere low poly count RPG.

There was this evil/not evil because it's fate and somebody has to do it, but still enjoys her job waay too much witch who had to raise and train the great heroes and villains of the ages. One of the characters was this super nice kid, but everywhere he went distruction followed in the form of a pillar of black energy. It only moved at a walking pace, but if he got too far ahead of it it'd start taking the shortest path between itself and him and he had to sleep on this rotating hammock thing that moved at the same speed as the pillar. Another character was well This character with This characters fasion sense. She was supposed replace the witch at some point in the future, but when the time came she wasn't ready yet... so the witch told the laws of conservation of energy, and all the rest of physics to go screw themeselves and sent the character back in time so she could finish teaching her. ... Interactions between the two versions of the character were weird to watch the older one would give cryptic pieces of advice or pieces of equipment and I think she was getting graded on how well she didn't tell her younger self what was going to happen.

I also feel the need to rant about EQ2 )

There are days when I wish I could disown the entire human race, or at select parts of it. This is a fact. Or at least that this is the wording of a proposal is a fact. It is not an opinion. "I don't belive the current administration would do that" is an opinion.

So, yeah, still got my teeth, sleeping on the benidril, and there's an apointment with an allergist in my future.

Where the hell did all these medical alergies come from?

This is something that I should have posted months ago when I had the news, or weeks ago when I first took the picture, and I know that my procrastinational tendencies are going to get me in a lot of trouble, but...


I has a girlfriend.

I also has got to get a better picture of her. ^^;

Thanks Megan.
