Not old enough to have played one? huh.gif

Dude, a five-year-old can pick it up and play now. There´s tons out there for sale! laugh.gif


True, but the question is; why would I?

Lacking the nostalgia value of having played them before, it would simply be a matter of moving to games with inferior graphics and, in all likelihood, gameplay to match.

If I've no inclination to go back to playing the GameBoy games I played as a kid, why would I choose to play games that are even older and with the same controls?

Because I said so! laugh.gif


Well, alright then. Be that way. Don´t come out and play with clay in May.

I like to shake things up a little every now and then.

Besides, it is theorised that Loki is an aspect of Odin operating independently.

Well, Odin does have a darker side. It's also theorised that Heimdall is another aspect of Odin, which is interesting considering how those two meet their ends...
mirocu
Heimdall and Odin do have some history. I believe Odin wanted Freya for her body and Heimdall wanted her for her love. What neither of them realized was that love requires both the spiritual and physical side, not just one of them.

It's an item that wasn't released until today, and obviously a particularly popular one. To clarify, her birthday was three days ago, so it was going to be a little late anyway, which I'd already told her. But over a month late is just ridiculous, especially since they didn't tell me until today mad.gif

And my birthday's closer to chritsmas than her's is, so I really can't say that to her rollinglaugh.gif

SPEW! I wouldn't have noticed that if you hadn't pointed out it was a strikethrough, lol.



Besides that - technically - we were going for the package first, which could very well have been cross country since it is taking so long to ship to you/your Mother. I forgot to get the info on where the package was being shipped from before setting out on this ... mission, laugh.gif










Callidus Thorn
Consdering how long it's gonna take to get here, they must be shipping it from Antarctica or something. mad.gif

Maybe it'll be delivered by someone on a sled pulled by huskies laugh.gif

We haven't jumped in the car with BooBoo and driven cross-country for far too long - Liz hasn't needed rescued in a long time, lol. What say we intercept that package?

(although whether to race it to Thorney or ... MWAAAHAAAHAAA!!!! - I don't know, guess it depends on the contents!) laugh.gif

I've missed these tongue.gif
mirocu
I´m sleepy indifferent.gif
Callidus Thorn
I'm not tongue.gif
mirocu
Well, I´m one hour ahead of you so it only makes sense laugh.gif
Callidus Thorn
True, but I'll be up for another hour and a half or so. Probably only online for the next half hour though. I find I sleep better if I leave off anything with a backlit screen for an hour before going to bed.
mirocu
I think that´s what they recommend to people who have trouble sleeping. I don´t however so I always jump straight into bed without even letting my monitor cool off laugh.gif
Callidus Thorn
Heh, lucky you. A good chunk of my problem tends to be getting my mind to shut up. having an active imagination can be a bitch sometimes. espeially when you're trying to get to sleep and any stray thought sets it spiralling off.
mirocu
I do have that problem too sometimes but somehow I´ve learned to shut it off if it goes too far and I begin to analyze etc. Then I go STFU!! and my brain has no choice but to comply out of respect for its owner tongue.gif
Callidus Thorn
I wish I could do that.

I have to rely on runic meditation these days to get any sleep.
mirocu
Anyways, I´m off to said bed now. See you!

treydog
So, as we all know, it has been a bad week, following several bad weeks. Which put me in the perfect frame of mind for the following.

(Work cell phone rings)

Me: “(Organization name), this is [treydog], how can I help you?”

Long silence, punctuated by breathing and shuffling of papers.

Me: “This is [treydog], how can I help you?”

Voice (non-North American accent): “Hello? Yes, this is Edward with Microsoft and we are calling about…”

Me (exasperated): “No. You really aren’t. I work as a computer technician and there is no reason Microsoft would be calling me on my WORK phone to talk about my HOME computer. Nice try. Thanks for playing. [Game show buzzer sound].” Click

That is the third or fourth one of those I have gotten. I think next time, I will say: “Oh really? That’s interesting, since I use a MACINTOSH!” I don’t. but hey, one good lie deserves another….

It is probably some test to see how employees respond to determine who will fill the position. Did you ever find out what the call was about? Maybe Microsoft needed their PC fixed, lol. Urk.





I had one call saying they just wanted a few minutes of my time to do a survey - find out what household products I used. I asked them what would I get out of it? Dead silence, then eventually he said ... "Er...nothing."

I told him that the company he was calling for was doing market research, paying him to call me and they would benefit financially from the results of the survey - so either I got paid for my time too, or was not going to participate. He thanked me for my time and got off the phone rather quickly, lol.
