    Wanted to pop in real quick to say...

    Saw '300'. Meh; didn't care for it.

    I don't recommend anyone see it unless you love half-mindless action flicks with tiny bits and pieces of material resembling depth (if remotely that).

    I read something about driving, and being the youngest in the family to drive... well, y'know what -my- bragging rights are? I am the only member of the family to get his license [before] a car. HAH! . . . I'm also the only member of the family [without] a car, but nevermind that...

    @Nevermore: I hope you don't mind my saying this, but your avatar is adorable.


    No, I don't mind at all. ^^;; If I could pass that on towards the artist's way, I would, but unfortunately, I lost contact with her ages ago. That said, I've kept it for a good four or five years, so... yeah. XD Was the avatar for an old anthropomorphic character I 'used to' RP as (very sporadic nowadays, like once a year, to be honest).

    Random news from this front -- trying to get back together with an ex-bandmate, drummer, and start doing some jams again. I haven't seriously been playing guitar / doing vocals in a really long time, I know my singing has only worsened from its already-previous-not-so-good ways (as for my guitar playing, it's improved but in the sense that I've changed my style). And this mentioned, I will shamelessly plug my old music / "project"...

    So I hope everyone remembered to wish Mikey a happy birthday. His evil and scornful wrath will be upon you otherwise Wink


    I am slipping out a "Happy (Belated!?) Birthday, Mikey" now while I still breathe...

    Ugh, and so sick. *nods off*

    *dusts the thread off for a single comment*

    Maybe taking a term off wasn't such a good idea after all.

    Or rather, not so much the term off -- but instead of a usual 12+ unit course list, I only signed up for roughly 4 units -- two separate classes, respectively. The problem, though, is that they're both online courses (trying to teach myself discipline at the computer!). In addition, neither have started yet... they both start on April 2nd? Oy? ... and on top of all this, I'm not clear on how "not paid for yet" reads to the college...

    'Cause I didn't drop out! I just kinda crashed last term. @_@

    I had something to say earlier... but the forums wouldn't let me reply to posts! >_< ... so now, I don't remember what I meant to say earlier.

    I must note, not knowing what Mental Magic is, how to even play Mental Magic, etc.

    And... I'm incredibly freakin' tired. Sorry. @_@ Feelin' sick, too...

    And yet you want to live in a dorm? How Suspicious...

    I lived in a dorm. It was the grossest experience of my life, and I'm not even overly concerned about cleaning. It was like living in a sewer with nightly keggers.


    I meant a catholic dorm. 'Cause then all I gotta watch out for are the--

    *zing*

    Something about independance, I guess. That, and I don't know, maybe the dorm circumstances are different; I recall being to a friend's who had separate rooms for everyone, and the mess was everywhere except in his room. I don't know if that varies from a normal dorm.

    I like LJ. You have one? :p

    Thanks for the replies; yeah, I'll probably look to talk with the Store Team Lead ("head honcho"?) about it in a week or two's time. I'm currently also up for promotion / transfer to either a Cash Office Specialist (also read as: part manager) or to 'Protection Services' (also read as: security that stands around for hours on end and makes more than me). Or something like that; just waiting for the appropriate interviews...

    I honestly don't mind what I do, I'm just in financial despair? o.o;;

    -------

    I wish I lived in a dorm, or at least, away from here, or at least... on my own, in some sense of the word? It's one thing, to clean up an apartment by yourself, it's another to know none of the mess is actually yours.

    On the Magic note -- may have mentioned this, but I'm interested in playing again. However, I don't want to go even remotely past Casual; basically, my personal restrictions would be [a] Commons Only!, [b] Type II Only!, and [c] One Deck Only! ... sorta... and this said, I'm thinking that my safest or easiest bet would be a straight up Burn / Direct Damage deck of some sort. Mono-Red? ... but I'm not even remotely close to being informed on today's metagame (in any area). Any ideas?

    That said... blue... ya "spoilers" made me re-click almost every Magic card you mention. yeah, apparently, I haven't played in a while, and even my memory has been shot further. Oy!

    -------

    On the news of the friend -- well, no answers or hints or information or anything . . . however, did find out a co-worker is bisexual. Importance? Well, I usually provide playful flirts or jest taps and whatnot (if I'm "acting" it, I exaggerate it), and for a very very rare couple of folk that I've actually had semi-bonding with, we have actual 'arms over shoulders' or even a hug.

    *Note: I tend to be extra cautious about that whole "sexual harassment" thing, so I literally don't even joke or anything unless it is actually invited or acted upon first, etc. Reaction versus anything.*

    ... well, this particular guy reached said "hug status," and over a conversation, he whispered to me something about being halfway out of the closet? And confused, he said: "There's a reason why I'm -very- comfortable with ya touching and holding me." Then a conversation later, basically told me some things, etc., and . . . yeah. @_@

    -------

    Been using mySpace a bit more lately as well; now that I've touched up my page, I'm actually gettin' some responses and new adds. Which is kinda nice? But I guess I just wanted the attention. Grin I admit it!

    On a related note (sorta?) -- wanna go to Vans Warped Tour; both Bad Religion and Coheed & Cambria will be there. Date for mine would probably be July 1st, for San Francisco, CA. Doubt I could arrange a subsequent meet / hang-out / get-together with anyone here, but figured I'd throw out the info and try. Smile

    -------

    Trying to get a raise at work. I can't really expand on this, 'cause I've never really been in this situation before. Essentially, I made minimum wage, and then got a raise last year -- this year, they raised minimum wage for the state to (just about) my current wage... without raising mine? ... so even after 1 yr. 9 mo., I once again make minimum wage. Am I justified in any manner to request a raise, on these grounds alone?

    ... or should I go with the "here's why I deserve a raise," and expose a lot of my lazy arse co-workers with actual photographs / evidence? (And I'd only do this, 'cause this laziness has made it a PAIN for me, more than often, at work -- since I'm 98% of the time, in charge of all 'closing duties' and stuff.)

    Or should I be on a constant attempt for a new job?

    -------

    I'm thinking that maybe MUSIC is [not] what I want to do for a living / career / etc. So now, I don't know why I'm going to college. Is there anything at all I can get without specializing, that will help me along the road of life? Or should I just stick it out till a Bachelor's Degree, and then go back and find something else? ... it really sucks to debate this, three (almost four) years into college... but so far, I'm down almost $2k, and haven't excelled in almost anything...

    -------

    Sorry for turning this into a LiveJournal entry! >_<

    Mamelon -- I guess I'd be torn between three possibilities. The first one being, "Sorry, I'm with someone right now," which is the full 100% truth and would be my initial reaction (regardless), however; "50%" stretches into the other two:

    [a] Why couldn't you have been this way with me when I was available, like before falling ridiculously in love / head over feet with my boyfriend? -or-

    [b] Let's not try anything, we've been friends since childhood, really wouldn't want to weird that now (and the problem with [b], I guess, is that I've considered the possibility of us together a looooong time ago, but after experiencing his drunken natures, I'll probably always be more worried about him as a friend before even imagining as a lover).

    Speaking of said friend, we're having lunch together today. Hmm.

    ... and just heard [b]"Plug In Baby" by Muse[/b] again. Mmm.

    And on a personal note, about 2% of the people I've known in life have "known" I was gay. The other 98% have said "You're kidding, right?" or "Whatever, dude" or "You're too young to know" ... or "And how did this happen?" -- so I dunno. Where do I actually place, beyond the obvious implications here (now)?

    ... Fall Out Boy is but one band; not even close to the greatest band in the world. However, I will listen to a newly purchased CD frequently... until the next CD, and then the previous slowly begins to collect dust. Only top favorite bands or CDs will get more consistent play time (for example, Goo Goo Dolls).

    I keep getting this weird impression that an "old, childhood friend" of mine is attempting to either [a] hook up with me, or [b] at least sleep with me (because at some point, [c] allowed the first two choices to be different). I'm not sure why I get this 'feeling'. I don't know if it's 'cause his relationship ended and he came crying to me about it, or 'cause he got drunk and cried to me about how much time we've lost hanging out together and how we should've stayed extremely close and whatnot, or just 'cause he once said that he doesn't want to hang out with anyone from the "old group," just me.

    Since this is a Magic forum, I should randomly mention that my return also echoes with a slight return to Magic. However, I feel I love money much more than Magic in any form. And so, I'll only be playing with all common, $10 - $15 decks... yay? Okay, I don't know...

    ... I'm straight-edge (again?). Or at least, by no drugs, no alcohol, no yay-sex-go-go, no stealing, etc. And even if it were a better stretch, I say I'm so far from hardcore, I'm softcore...

    ... I want to move out...

    [EDIT] -- And [b]y'all[/b] has been part of my vocabulary / dialogue, even before my first exit of the state (pre-Arizona, and pre-Georgia, etc.).

    At some point, in recent history, members of Coheed & Cambria left the group for personal reasons.

    This comes just as much of a surprise to me as discovering that both Bad Religion and Coheed & Cambria will be playing for Vans Warped Tour '07.

    I am only just learning this now, while in the meantime, Megadeth puts out "Sleepwalker" to MegaFanClub members only. Argh. Everyone seems to like it. Me? I've only heard the Gears of War demo. Opinion? Not impressed; it's Megadeth, but talk about not trying to sing anymore.

    And otherwise, been hooked on Fall Out Boy's latest creation, *Infinity On High* -- and I guess I do dig the outrageousness ? of the band.

    And a desire to see Pete Wentz' unit... hmmmmm...

    As something I'd done for a long time when attempt to acquaint (and / or re-acquaint) myself with old times, I apologize in advance for butting into everyone's business with an opinion. However, I'd like to try and share some sort of feedback with y'all.

    Quote from Abare
    Also, I kinda want opinions if possible...
    See, I'm kinda interested in a guy, and he seems to reciprocate the interest, but there has been a small hitch recently. I've talked to a few close friends of mine who said that on previous relationships, he was an ass. Should I go with the idea that he's changed or just break it off before anything bad even tries to happen?


    Though I usually stick to "better safe than sorry," I also prefer to figure things out on my own -with- the help of (pre)caution and (early) advice. While I wouldn't suggest to go into it "with the idea that he's changed," your -close- friends are -close- for a reason, so their input is still something to keep in mind. Don't disregard, but don't go with immediate expectations. This all said, of course, if you haven't -personally- experienced this [arse] attitude you've heard of, and only go off from ya told and not witnessed... beyond close friends, how's the credibility? ... erm, yeah. Some thoughts. ^^;;

    Quote from {mikeyG}
    Of course not. An old ego stroke is still an ego stroke. Wink


    Mmm... stroke... gaaah... erm! Grin Yes, indeed.

    Quote from Leilani
    The only gay guy at the party was actually SUPPOSED to be gay in the scene, and he tried so hard to be flamboyant [to make it amusing], he somehow ended up with a russian accent. O_o;


    In an awkward twist, this actually makes sense to me... at least, for this one week. I've been hanging out with a group of 'furs' that are actually the first group (anywhere) to impress me with impersonations. Though I don't know if that's the right way to put it! ... but that said, one of them was telling me some stories, and he would use this Russian accent for some of the bits... I don't know about romantic, but the word -hawt- popped up a couple times. And I mean, just beyond the already good looks... oh, whoops... O>=D

    Anywho, that's the only reason it felt "right," in the exact moment I read it. That, and I enjoy hearing accents in general, regardless of the use or context. Talk about pushing, though?

    Quote from gerg
    Oh, and it's my birthday on Saturday. w00t!


    The 'tranny' stuff, I lack real input beyond "a mother's love for her son"! But for this bit... Here's an early *Happy Birthday* for ya!

    Quote from blue
    When my hair gets long I tend to think about getting it permed straight. It's not curly but it gets wavy and I guess in the back it curls a lil'.


    Same with my hair, except the curls become really defined after about... oh, eight inches, maybe? Now that I just cut my hair time and time again, I kinda forget... but I remember the 19 inches it used to be... =*( ... okay, sorry, random nostalgia. XD But I used to think of a "straight perm," but others said they loved my curls so much (and I didn't really care for them), so...

    A Nevy Comment

    This has been a big accomplishment for me, [very] sadly, but I want to be honest. I started playing World of Warcraft about six, seven, maybe eight months ago? ... and it's very easy for me to become addicted to something I enjoy (let's keep this clean of alcohol back-stories, though!). And I enjoy WoW very much... yes... [too] much.

    My anti-social side actually strengthened... skipped out on lots of class sessions, to stay home and play WoW... called out sick to work a few times, to stay home and play WoW... avoided some hang-outs with family and friends, to stay home and play WoW... yeah, it got [real] bad. My emo-ness was off the hook, in an expected twist.

    ... I recently cancelled my account. My last day of playing WoW is basically this Wednesday, and then it's the end of "12 to 16 plus hours at the PC for a game"!

    ... the problem, though, is that I was able to communicate with lots of my friends that -did- play the game (including my 'two-years-now' boyfriend, who will actually continue to play) on a more frequent basis, just not physicaly / visibly see them. But especially on the boyfriend account... sigh! ... alas! ... and, well, there's always AIM and cell phones. ^^;;

    Just wanted to provide something to the thread in my return. Sad but true, that this is the "biggest deal" for me at all in recent times... but... yeeaaahhhh... Smile

    "You last visited: 06-21-2006 at 05:12 PM"

    How has everyone been? ... I'd read the whole thread, but it's about 3:23am PST right now, and... well, I'll be up for a bit, but I'm organizing lots and lots of crap. So... yeah, don't mind the -really- old signature, as well? Heh, well, hope to actually start being around here again, maybe... just maybe.
