I'm two hundred or so pages into A Dance With Dragons. It's prooving to be a lot more interesting than A Feast For Crows was. But, I suppose that's to be expected, all Feast had to really offer was insight on Cersei, Jaime, some charpters for Sansa and Arya and Brienne. It was more about the goings on at King's Landing. And, while it's interesting, a lot of the characters I love weren't really mentioned in the book. Bran, Jon, Tyrion, and Dany were all left out. But, I will say, haha to Cersei and her current predicament. It's fun to watch the Lannisters get what's coming to them. I can only hope she loses that pretty little scheming head of hers. I should finish Dragons by the weekend (probably wishful thinking as I still have a good seven hundred pages to go), I am planning to do nothing but read in my free time. And, then maybe I will be able to finally start Anne Rice's The Wolf Gift. I want to read it so badly, but not before I finish what's available for A Song of Ice and Fire.
I am so sick of hearing about the "zombie apocalypse" nonsense. The incident that occured in Florida over the weekend. It wasn't zombies, morons, it was drugs. Drugs will screw you up something aweful. Now, serioisly, shut the fuck up about zombies.
Just because the Sandbox is more lax regarding topics and posting, it still doesn't mean you can post anything you want there.
I want a coven that's just a giant sand box, sort of like CF, but it still had its rules...I don't know what I'm talking about.
I didn't know there was a change. I don't visit the forums often.
...Though even before when I would frequent the forums, I found it to be full of nonsense topics that didn't interest me.
Finding someone to have an intellectual discussion with on this site, is like finding a slightly more pale blue ball in a swimming pool full of pale blue balls.
There are times when I miss being a Dominar. Now that I have been a more frequent visitor to the main forum, I have noticed a lot of useless posts that need to be deleted. You people do understand that simply posting "I agree with the above" or "I disagree with the above" without explaining yourself is pointless, right? Such posts are deleted as they are noticed. And, really, why bother posting if you are not going to bother contributing to the topic at all? Where is the sense in that? It won't count towards your status, since, as stated, such posts are deleted. It irks me. If you want stupidity and topics where you don't have to think, go do the rest of us a favor and simply play in the Sandbox. No thinking is really required there. Though, some do try.
I would love to have the position again, but I am fairly certain I burned that bridge when I stepped down. Sometimes I am a right idiot when it comes to certain decisions.
For fuck's sake.. A lot is two words, people, not one. It's not alot but rather a lot. Notice the space between a and l? It's supposed to be there. It's probably irrational of me, but every single time I see someone above the age of ten spell it as one word, I want to smack them with a brick. Over and over again. Until it's drilled into their heads that it's two freaking words. It's just a pet peeve of mine. And it is so rampant here, I see it in kismets and journals, profiles and even portfolios, stamps and in the damn Database. You're all idiots, I swear. Learn to fucking spell.
I got Anne Rice's, The Wolf Gift, and Martin's last book for A Song of Ice and Fire that's out, A Dance With Dragons, from the library yesterday. The thing is, they only let you have the books for two weeks, which really isn't much time at all. So, needless to say, I won't be on much for a while, not like I have really been on much for the past few weeks, but yeah. I want to finish these books first, and that's going to take some time. I still have to finish A Feast For Crows before I can start on A Dance With Dragons, and I still have a good 500 more pages on it. I love the series, but it really does take time to get through each book. So, if you need me, you can message, I get on daily to give Honor, so I will get it. And if you message this account or Ephemeral, I get the phone notifications. So, see ya, VR. I'll be back in full swing eventually.
Languages I really need to learn..
Spanish (growing up hearing it constantly with my father's relitives, and it still never sunk in fully)
Latin (I know enough to get by)
I have been told I can pick up on languages pretty quickly. I don't know if I personally believe that, as it took a number of years to learn Tolkien's Elvish properly. But, one day, I hope to be able to speak all of the above fairly decently.
Interesting new site feature. Kinda makes stalking someone super easy. I don't mind it, I am usually lurking anyway, so anything I do is apparently going to be delayed by 24 hours. Nifty.
Oh Netflix, how I love you! When did you start streaming Korean dramas? I saw one of my all time favorites, Boys Over Flowers in my recommendations, and I nearly flipped out. They don't have much to choose from, I'd probably still go to CrunchyRoll for the selection, but they have a few interesting ones I've never seen on other sites. I now have something to do this weekend while I brood on missing the camp out with the Young Marines.
I've been spending a lot of time in the main forums lately, something I haven't really done since I was a Dominar and it was my job, and I've noticed something. Once you get past the mass stupidity that runs amuck, there are some really thought provoking threads. You have to dig deep, but you can find topics and responses from a select few that make it all worth while. I really missed interacting with this part of the site. I don't know why I activly avoided it for so long.
She got me sick, I feel miserable. My head is pounding and my throat is so sore. It's always my throat, ever since I came back from Oregon.. Ugh.. I should be sleeping, but I can't because of my damn throat.
Uh.. You are aware that it is pointless to throw a Sire up for sell in the Classifieds, right? Anyone who pays for a Sire to join their Society is a fucking idiot, considering people aren't trustworthy and Sires can leave at the drop of a hat. And anyone who asks for Favor for a Sire is doubly stupid.
I have noticed that I have really been neglecting this place. Sure, I may log on every day, but I am not all that active, save on Ephemeral. And even then it's not like it used to be. Mostly I check messages, check journals, give some Honor, then log out. I may spend an hour or so on cam, but even that isn't much.
I have also been neglecting those I consider friends. And for this I am sorry. I have been pushing a lot of people away lately, retreating back into myself, away from every one and everything. Some of it has to do with my cousin Robert's loss, but it's mostly just me. I have been doing this for far too long to hold his death responsible. I crave companionship, but I don't know how to go about getting it. I don't know how to keep people here with me. In my experiance everyone leaves, and maybe that's why I push them away. I love a number of you on some level or another, yet I can't be bothered to respond to calls and texts and messages. I don't care. And yet I do. My friendship is a funny thing. I may care and I may be loyal, but I won't often put out any effort. I rely on everyone else to do so, then I can choose if I want to do something about it. But, I am sorry. I know this, and perhaps I will do something about changing my behavior, but most likely I won't. So, you can either put up with me or you can cut me away. I wouldn't blame anyone for doing such.
You're...a lone wolf at heart. You always have been.
...But if you think I'll simply abandon you after six years you couldn't be more wrong. ...I'll still be here, as always, and though I can't speak for everyone else, I'd wager that there are a few who feel the same way.
A Cheshire Cat isn't simply going to abandon his Alice. After all...who would he have tea with? =^.^=
