Its my birthday today. Yep... Thats all I got to say right now....
Destro Yersul

Curious. 'Tis my birthday too. We are both now one year closer to inevitable death, assuming I don't manage to become undead sometime before then.
apeoflight

It is very hard to become an undead without dying first.
Terumitsu

Happy one-year-closer-to-your-imminent-demise-day to you both then!
Orange Zergling

Happy womb-liberation days!

True, but I'd like the interval between my death and subsequent undeath to be as short as possible. So I'd have to pre-empt it in order to make sure I did get to be undead.
Renom

Curse you tektek! Your avatars are always six pixels too large for Enupnion!
wingrae

Just do the link to off-site avatar thing the way Uberblagh explained. It's really simple and works.
Jacklu

Happy birthday Ape and Destro!  A special birthday song just for you!
wingrae

Jacklu, you seem to have an unending supply of depressing birthday songs. Where do you find them all?

Happy first-day-you-ever-breathed-air day guys Very Happy. It is nice to have you both here on planet earth. *holds up glass of water as a toast*

Please refrain from discussing real-world religion, even in a hypothetical context, on these forums.
Xaspian

I thought that was the Incas? (Or Mayans... or Aztecs... I always get them all muddled up.)
Destro Yersul

Mayans, I believe. It's the year their calendar ended.

People are paranoid about this. I just figure that if everything goes up in smoke, at least I won't have to bother with work anymore.
Orange Zergling

I now have a song on my iPod called Forest of Unicorns.

I'm... not sure if I just gained or lost manly points.
DivineAmour

Oh, gained, definatly.

Totally awesome song we listened to in Spanish:

Who the hell thinks anyone would pay this much for a sketch?
Destro Yersul

Obviously that guy.

I've seen worse stuff go for more, to be honest.
Wukei

But is it actually going, or are they trying to sell it for that much?  There's a difference.
Gnrlshrimp

I reckon it will actually be going. There will always a few people that buy expensive crap...
Wukei

Hey, the government gives grants for it all the time.  (IE, the guy that peed in a jar and sold it as art...)
Gnrlshrimp

Pee in a jar? Meh, that's not the worst thing. I read in a newspaper article that someone has managed to pass off a pile of animal faeces as art...

I swear, I'll never understand modern art.
Destro Yersul

Yeah. Then there was that guy with the goldfish and the blenders....

One day I will hit him with a trout.
Wukei

I have found what I most want for Christmas ^.^

http://www.amazon.com/Monopoly-Ch...LGJRCR09V&colid=1TP3E2EBAYNTP

and of course, the bedroom set, too...

Yeah, I collect Monopoly.  (Parker Brothers, not the knockoff.  Unfortunately, two people have made the mistake to get the 'Late for The Sky' Chocolateopoly and Dogopoly for me.  [Of course, I was grateful, but I don't play those.  They don't look a thing like the real monopoly.])

If you're confused, the Monopoly will ALWAYS say, Monopoly on the top (with Mr Moneybags [not Mr Monopoly, though I think they may have officially changed it recently...] in the center) then say what special board it is.  (IE, Monopoly Star Wars [well, there's like 5 of those (I just bought the newest one.  I have all but 1, I'm pretty sure.)])

And for friends actually looking for things for me that say they suck at gift ideas:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/1TP3E2EBAYNTP

^ My wishlist.

I know some friends like to make it personal (like I tend to make items for friends instead of buying something and handing it over.  Last year my closest friends each got a drawing of their character in an awesome frame [I wish I bought a frame like that for myself.])  This year, everyone's getting something as long as they give me their address.  I love giving gifts.  It's fun.  And it gives me something to do with my hands.  (Even though Christmas is just the stolen Yuletide. I don't celebrate 'Christmas' so much as I just enjoy giving presents.  And this gives me an excuse.)
Destro Yersul

I seem to recall reading somewhere that his name is Rich Uncle Pennybags, but I could be wrong.

I like giving gifts too, but I usually buy them. I'm not so great at making stuff from scratch, mostly because I never actually finish making it. Still, I'm pretty good at picking stuff out.
apeoflight

I am neither good at picking stuff out or making stuff. Which usually means it takes a long time for me to get presents for people.
Wukei

I double checked on the site, and they have changed his name from Moneybags to Mr Monopoly.  Which kinda irks me.  His original name was better.

(I REALLY want the pinball machine ^.^...it ain't happening, but one can dream.  I would totally change my pokemon room to a monopoly room if I got that. [I do have the quillow for it.])
Uberblah

I always thought his name was Uncle Pennybags... >.> <.< Guess I was really wrong.

And I used to have the handheld game for awhile, but it broke. I can't remember if was becuase I played it so much, or because I threw it against a wall in frustration. I know I threw some electronic handheld game against a wall.
Wukei

...you injured a poor Monopoly game?

I used to have an awesome monopoly tin.  It disappeared in one of my moves between here and Dallas.  I loved that tin.... (my boxers disappeared on a trip to visit my old bf.)

And, I can't continue my rant cuz I gotta go get the car for my trip tomorrow.
Exachix

Eww... monopoly...

We're banned from playing it.
Wukei

That's really sad...I love monopoly.  I'd cry if I was banned from it.
Lykan

Well, hopefully this all-nighter was worth it.

The Maggy over here'll be matching his avvie and dressing up as a surgeon.

A lawyer.

Shush. It was the scariest thing I'll ever be.

Update #1 on Mom:

After just one day, her leg is looking much better.  She seems quite content with the nursing staff up there, too, so I wasn't so worried about coming home.  Not much I can do besides just sit there while she watches TV anyway.

I'm gonna take a day of rest tomorrow, so I'll be online all day.  I'm absolutely exhausted after my trip to Dallas-San Antonio-Dallas-San Antonio. (The driving doesn't include all the places we went to have fun, ie Sea World et al.)  So I need to rest so I don't end up injuring myself.
Wukei

Apparently the expresident of Dad's work is writing a book, and he's looking to get some pictures done.  Dad's sending me to meet him tomorrow to talk about commissioning 20+ images.

So, yeah...looks like I'll be making some money, assuming he likes my portfolio.
Wukei

[childish mind]I got a commission today.  I'm drawing 21 pictures, the mass of them are going to be penises.  And I'm getting paid to do it![/childish mind]  (No, it's not a hentai.)

The guy is a really sweet old man.  He used to be the Surgeon General.  He now has devoted his life to urology.  

It's a good opportunity for me, cuz the guy is well-known in the science community, and he's writing a book.  I'm going to be drawing several of the pictures for the book.  Which means he might refer me to others.

Mind you, I don't want them all to hire me to draw that particular area of the anatomy.  Hell, I refuse to draw Anubis or any of the others naked.  And that's a cartoon.  This is supposed to be more realistic.  I don't mind doing it if it's for science, I guess.

Anyway, I'm supposed to have this done by next week, so time to get the nose to the grindstone.
Wukei

Update #2 on Mom: (I apparently am the only one who posts in the chat forum anymore.)

Mom is officially home.  We're curled up in bed watching the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
DeBunny

I can post here if you'd like.
Hooray for not hospitilized mothers!
Jacklu

You are not the only one wukie, see, me and DeB posted here.  ^_^  
Also, congrats on the commission.  Money for doing what you like it good.  Even if you are being paid to draw penises.  But hey, somebody has to draw them, right?  And even further, that's great that your mom is home!  I might not have posted anything, but I was keeping track.  I'm very happy to hear that she is home.
Xaspian

I'm learning BSL. That's British Sign Language.
I'm not really sure why, but mostly just for fun. Like any language, it's interesting.
Today I learnt colours. To sign 'purple', you use both the signs for 'red' and 'blue'.

Can anyone else here sign?
Wukei

I can sign the alphabet and say 'thank you.'  So, I guess if I can spell everything out, I can actually sign pretty well.

I thought sign was sign, no matter the language.  I thought the only thing different was the alphabet.  (Cuz languages like Spanish have extra letters.)
Xaspian

Nah, there's differences.
Heck, there's even regional differences within BSL.
I guess it's a bit like accents, or dialects. But I guess there are international variations, too.
Mind you, seeing as I don't actually know what signs they use in other countries, I don't know how different it actually is. Maybe I should find out.

Fun Fact - In BSL, the same sign means both 'Live' and 'Toilet'.
Castaras

"I'm going to see my favourite show on Broadway Toilet!"
Xaspian

If you're not careful, you might ask someone where they live, and they'll tell you where the loos are. The difference is in lip pattern. So, when you make the sign (rub your middle finger on your chest) you need to mouth the right word - Toilet of Live/life, as appropriate.

Oh, and looking it up, BSL is different from American Sign Language, apparently.
wingrae

I've always been curious what the differences between Signing Exact English (SEE) and American Sign Language (ASL) are. I've read on it a bit, but it's still confusing, especially since it seems that SEE uses a lot of signs derived from ASL. From what I've read both of those are different from British Sign Language.

Anyhow, it's must be fun to learn to sign Xas. I wanted to take a course in sign language, but it wouldn't necessarily be accepted as a language course by some colleges so I took Spanish instead. One of these days I'll stop being so lazy and I'll find a community ed course or something and learn some sign.
Wukei



Well, I went to the doctor yesterday.  (I scheduled it so I could pickup Hellboy II after [hey, I live 20 miles from the city.  Gotta conserve gas.])  Luckily, it's not what I thought it was, but my chronic ear infections have made me actually have an infection elsewhere.  So I'm on antibiotics.  I have a fever and I keep ending up in very hot rooms, which makes it worse (I had to go see Dr Mittemeyer today about his commission.)

But hey, at least I have Hellboy II, and I'm making money.

Now if I can just schedule a time with mom to finally SEE Hellboy II...
Orange Zergling

I had lots of ear infections as a small child which led to tubes being put in and an eardrum bursting. I don't know if it's an option for you due to location/bone problems/other, but a few years ago I tried Chiropractic therapy and it made a noticeable difference for the better; plus no antibiotics that really screw up your teeth. Or at least, they messed up my baby teeth... thankfully my adult teeth are fine.
Wukei

I don't tend to use antibiotics.  I just deal until my body does away with it.  Which is probably why I have this infection in the first place...
Wukei

Awww, this is so sad.

Dad's away at a meeting in San Francisco, and Tubby got really upset (like he did when Mom was gone.)  Not being able to take him to visit Dad, I called Dad up and held the phone up to Tubby's ear.

Tubby began screaming and licking the hand that was holding the phone.  He continued even after Dad had to get off the phone.  He'll be calling back later, so I may put Tubby on the phone again so that he can hear Dad again.

Luckily, Dad's coming home tomorrow.
Wukei

NSFW!

I am disturbed because I wonder how many artists start out with images like this and move on to complete them to make it into a picture that's put into a colouring book.
Xaspian

I'm more interested in how "CSI Miami - Endless Caruso One Liners" is in related videos for that one.
Wukei

Maybe the BG music is the same?  Or the same person put it on youtube?  (I don't know Miami, so I couldn't say anything else.)
Orange Zergling

The part of me that isn't a 14 year old boy is telling me not to laugh... but that was bloody hilarious.
Renom

Well, seeing as I actually am a fourteen year old boy, I find that hilarious.
Wukei

I find it extremely disturbing.  How many times have I coloured a dick in a colouring book?
Castaras

The forum "The Games" just made me lose.

Just saying, in case anyone wanted to know.
Terumitsu

Hopping on just to post one little thing I found during my research. It's somewhat interesting I think...

SeptAngel

That's really cool. It looked like he had way more than 2 hands.
Orange Zergling

I just found this and thought it was hilarious. White men can't jump but apparently they can rap... about computers.
Destro Yersul

Ok, Zergling? That is awesome. I am downloading that.

And I don't even LIKE rap.
Orange Zergling

Yeah, I usually avoid rap like the bubonic plague, but this song is just too epic to ignore. With the video it's even better.
Xaspian

I was thinking...
They should swap the titles of the (BBC) TV shows 'Outnumbered' and 'Survivors'.
One is a comedy about a family with three young-ish children (about 7 to 12 yo, I think), while the other is a drama in which 99% of the world's population is wiped out by a virus, and those left have to band together.

I have other thoughts, like turning 24 hour digital clocks upside-down.
Artemis

My fellow Townies, I am curious as to how many of you own the game Neverwinter Nights? I am in the rather early stages of building a module/server/thing. If any of you would like to help me build, test, or simply play on it, please feel free to send me a PM or contact me through MSN ( Artemis.97@hotmail.com) which is probably the better option, actually. I'd really appreciate the help and together I think we could make it really fun and exciting.

And for those of you who don't have the game GET IT! It's a great game, if a little old, but you can get it, its two expansions, and a few custom modules for $19.99. That's hours upon hours of game play, and I haven't even mentioned the multi-player! There's an online multi-player with user-created servers and it's completely FREE! Why pay cash to play WoW or whatever when you can play for free? And a lot of the servers are actually Roleplaying oriented, the one I used to play on was entirely free of leet-speak and whathave you. It's a different sort of player base. It's a lot like Town, actually.

Okay... I think I've done enough advertising. Anyways, if you've got the game, I'd like to know, so we can all get together ad play sometime.
Castaras

Neverwinter Nights FTW.

I might get round to doing my module/world building thing in it again some time. =D
Deadly

NWN and NWN2 are both awesome. Very hard to do anything big in either without help, however. That's my experience, atleast. I have a bunch of module ideas, stuff I'd like to make, but can't finish.

Some day. Some day I hope to finish something big and noteworthy.
Xaspian

I used to have it, but then lost the discs. And got a new computer.
I might buy it again. It was great fun, although I never really had good enough connection to play online... and that's changed now.
Right. So once I buy it all again, I'll have a go at the test/play bit, Art. Maybe.
Wukei

...I think Angelfire just deleted my old website.  The one that had my old LfD scripts...


edit: it's up again.  Must have been an angelfire glitch.
Renom

I heard a rumor that disney is releasing a Tron 2 in 2009. I don't know weather to be overjoyed or terrified.
Wukei

It's not just a rumour, I've seen actual proof on their site.  I don't know who's in it, but of course if a movie's made money (and this one also provided them extra money in Kingdom Hearts 2) they try to suck it dry by making as many sequels as will make a profit.


edit: And it's not gonna be anywhere close to as good as the first, even with the improved graphics (in fact, the improved graphics will be a detriment to it.)
Renom

I like Tron, but disney has ruined so many things, so this could go anywhere.
Wukei

Is a D now really a passing grade?  Are children not held to the standards they used to be?  I know plenty of schools that give kids the answers to the special state test done every year, to raise their own grades among the state.  But I thought that was the max of what they did.  Now it seems they're making it possible to pass with a 60.
Kantur

It possibly is in educational/political terms so that the figures look better with the same set of results. Of course, that doesn't change how an employer's going to look at them - A candidate with all Cs looks much better than one with all Ds, and especially since they'll have grown up with the mentality that a C or better is a pass, they'll probably look at D passes in the same way graduate employers look at certain degrees, regardless of it's classification.
Destro Yersul

D's are a pass now? Really? George Carlin was right...
Wukei

I'm sorry, I didn't watch much of him.  What'd he say about school grading systems?
Destro Yersul

He said, and I quote:

"They say we need more money for education. That’s the big answer to everything, education. They say we need more money for books, more teachers, more classrooms, more schools, and more testing for the kids, and they’ll say, well we tried all of that, and the kids still can’t pass the tests. Don’t worry about that, because we’re going to lower the passing grades, and that’s what they do in a lot of these schools. They lower the passing grades so more kids can pass - more kids pass, the school looks goods, and the IQ of the country slips another 2 or 3 points. And pretty soon all you’ll need to get into college is a pencil. Got a pencil? Then get in there, it’s physics!"
Wukei

That's about right.  What really upsets me is the kids that fail cuz they don't go to class and then blame the teacher.  My dad works at Texas Tech (Tech sucks, but I'll go into that some other time) and a student recently said 'well, if you drop my lowest grade I have an A, so I don't have to take the final.'  The options were only if you had an A before the dropped grade, you didn't have to take the final.  And the choice was to not take the final or to drop your lowest grade. (And only if you got an A.)

People think the teachers owe them something.  And dad will sit around his office til 10 pm (or later) to help a kid that's having a hard time.  But he's not going to be the only person trying to make an effort for their grade.
Destro Yersul

Must be kind of annoying. I'm thinking of becoming a college professor, so I'm sure I'll have to deal with that sort of thing at some point. If they don't put in any effort though...

I mean, I never put in much effort in school, but I showed up and I did the work. And I actually managed to pass on my own. People who don't put in any effort and don't show up and blame the teachers for their failure... That would piss me off.
DeBunny

"Hi, I'm here to learn how to take your job!"
That's what pops into my head whenever someone says they're going to be a college professor at some point...

I know plenty of people who decide to blame teachers for their own laziness induced failures. Nasty people usually.
Too many of those these days...
Destro Yersul

I prefer "Hi. If I work hard enough, I might be your coworker in ten years"  Razz
DeBunny

Well, that one is significantly less likely to get your teacher to hate you. >.>
Artemis

Oh dear lord, please don't get me started on the downslide of our education system. It's just... Gah... I'll start ranting if I start typing out specifics. Just... GRAWR.
Wukei

So...I went to see the doctor yesterday (my normal doctor had sent me to an ortheopaedist because he spotted something in an MRI he'd gotten of my knee on the femur.  The ortheopaedist got a full leg MRI to check it.)  He said that the issue just looked like a calcium build up, but he was going to a meeting this morning, so he'd talk with the board just to get their opinion as well.

They called me this morning and it seems that his endocrinologist is going to get an appointment with me...so, it sounds like a much bigger issue than the injured knee I first thought it was.
Deadly

That doesn't sound comforting. I hope it's nothing serious, then.
Wukei

I'm trying not to get too worried until Monday when I learn what's going on.  No point in getting sick over worry.

----

Tubby (the guinea pig I tend to have in my sig) has built himself a pillow fort.  I tried to get a picture, but he ran out.  I'll try to get a picture when he's in it next time.

Yeah, I got a bit confused cuz mom was going to see her endocrinologist.  I was confused that I was.  I was going to see an oncologist.  So, in short, the cancer doctor.  Luckily, the doctor agrees that he only thinks that it's a calcium deposit on the bone.  He does want me to get an MRI in three months, however, to make sure it hasn't grown.  If it has, then we'll get a biopsy.  He said that the likelihood that this is anything more than a normal reaction to my fast growth or some other quirk is very very small.  (After all, I grew 6 inches in one summer.)  I'm still a slight bit worried about it, but not so much.
TwoBitWriter

Hello all... I figured I should at least start posting in places like this.
Artemis

Hi all! I am trying to post this from a demo Iphone at an AT&T store here in   town. The screen is a bit touchy(no pun intended) and it's hard to hit the right links, but the on screen keyboard is pretty nice, though I think my fingers are a bit fat for it. Well that's it from me for now. I just thought I'd try it for novelty's sake.
Xaspian

Admit it, that pun was totally intended. There's no need to feel ashamed of it.
blackout

*happy*Might be getting the chance to use computers for my two-week-long christmas break.

More to come, hopefully.
Artemis

The keyboard wasn't too bad, actually, once I got used to it I was going fairly fast. Fast for hunt and peck anyways. I had a hard time clicking on links on the site, though, because they were too small and too close together that'd my fingers would miss the one a I wanted. It must have taken me ten tries to click on the Random Chat link from the main page. I was starting to really dislike the thing until I asked one of the sales people to show my how to zoom in and out, which required only the remarkably simple pinch of the fingers to do. That made navigating the web a whole lot easier and I grew to like the phone quite a bit, but both me and my mother (who had wanted to look at the thing in the first place) decided it was just a luxery that we didn't really need and really couldn't afford. Still, it was fun to see how far cell phones and computing has come. For the power they have and the things they can do, those things are TINY, and lightyears ahead of the brick of a cellphone I carry around now.

and YAY! I'll be glad to see you come back, even for a short while, Blackout.

Its overcast outside and I'm feeling really down today...
