Only two thoughts this evening-
First I really need to reblog people’s art. I don’t know why I’m scared to.
Second, I forgot how awesome Tales of Xillia was. The sequel is doing a good job to make me remember. Great game.
Third, I need some fucking sleep.
Post of the day cancelled on account of Cox being dicknuggets and the service being out.
I’m really excited for my two days off so I actually have the time and energy to cook. Cooking after work just feels like a painful chore.
School thoughts and trying to justify the atomic bomb to my roommate under the cut.
I’m amazed at how quickly one or two rude customers can ruin your day, and one or two amazing ones can bring it right back up. It’s almost unhealthy. Cool middle aged black lady gamer completely made my day. We hashed out mmos and talked strategy. She schooled me on building computers and all I could do is sit and marvel. Lotta fun.
I have a condition known as hyper strabismus, which means that when I try to focus on an object outside of my eye’s comfort zone my left eye will basically look up and away, leaving my right eye to look at what I want to see. Problem is when your eyes don’t work in tandem and you’re getting two different visual inputs and the muscle strain of an eye going to the edge of it’s viewing area, you get a headache real fast. For a while I was doing eye therapy, and that really helped, but I haven’t done that in years and now it’s hard to keep my eye in place. Today is what we would call a bad eye day, and I’ve had a splitting headache all day.
To this I would say to my eye- fuck the hell right off.
Some days all you can be thankful for is that the day ending without you collapsing.
I miss playing dnd. I only got to play pathfinder once, but it was such a neat system. I even liked 4th edition, because it helped me teach a bunch of friends how to play. I map out character leveling paths and concepts on my breaks, even though I have no real chance of playing in a game any time soon. But man it would be fun. My last group was nuts. As usual we wouldn’t play so much as just have fun being together. A first timer, having been blinded early on in the fight and not really knowing how rounds worked, spent one round digging a hole, the next curling up in that hole, and the last round masturbating, all while I (the healer) was getting killed. We joked for the rest of that game that it only took 6 seconds to dig a six foot long hole.
twarden replied to your post: “A man came up to me yesterday at work, wearing sunglasses, with his…”:
WHAT THE FUCK.
Right? I asked my manager what I should do if the guy came back. My manager, who looks and acts like a stereotypical Italian mobster, said in a deadpan voice “cooperate if the police show up”
A man came up to me yesterday at work, wearing sunglasses, with his wife and kid, and asked about what kind of digital voice recorder works the best when hidden. He then asked about the legality of taping someone, and all his questions answered to his satisfaction and his recorder picked out, he took me aside and said to me very earnestly
"Peter, the world is coming to an end"
"You’ve got to hold to your faith"
"Peter, you need to believe in Jesus"
He then left. I haven’t been more annoyed, amused, confused, or unsettled by a transaction in a while.
Oh, and he returned the recorder not more than an hour and a half later, unopened.
I’ve been so mentally exhausted at work that I’ve had trouble forming words, staying with sentences, retaining thoughts, and am constantly referring to Macs as HPs. I’m so glad I have tomorrow off.

I’m so glad we’re nearing the end of August, because my first looked forward to game comes out soon. Then I can get out of this funk of not knowing what to play and become super excited for every release, leading up to DA:I which I won’t stop playing for a year (if my record in Mass Effect is to be believed).
