      Today was my last scheduled day of work so that I could spend the next few days getting ready to go to college. I got the night shift, so the store was quiet, except for the air compressor and the music playing over the speakers--some random mixture of three decades' popular tracks.

      As I was standing at my register, waiting for customers, I heard something chillingly familiar come on over the speakers.

      We are no strangers to love...
      You know the rules, and so do I...


      The store music RickRolled me on my last day. smiley4.gif

      I hate you too, buddy.

      Hey! Hey you!

      Yes, you.

      You should totally go and watch Rane's video.

      It was full of enough win to make me enjoy a Miley Cyrus song. And that's saying something.

    • Jealous?

      I'm not jealous of the people who went to PAX. Where did you get that idea?

      Sure, they all got to meet up and hang out and take pictures. Sure, they got to see a bunch of new games and game developers. Sure, they got to meet the Rooster Teeth guys and see the finale of the series that the rest of us have to wait for.

      But I'm not jealous. I have...um...Doctor Who! And tea! And that's enough.

      It really is.

      ...

      Seriously, though, I'm glad everyone who went had such a good time, and I can't wait to go next year. ^___^

      Because I could not stop for Death-
      He kindly stopped for me'”
      The Carriage held but just Ourselves'”
      And Immortality.

      We slowly drove'”He knew no haste,
      And I had put away
      My labor and my leisure too,
      For His Civility'”

      We passed the School, where Children strove
      At recess'”in the ring'”
      We passed the Fields of Gazing Grain'”
      We passed the Setting Sun'”

      Or rather'”He passed Us'”
      The Dews drew quivering and chill'”
      For only Gossamer, my Gown'”
      My Tippet'”only Tulle'”

      We paused before a House that seemed
      A Swelling of the Ground'”
      The Roof was scarcely visible'”
      The Cornice'”in the Ground'”

      Since then'”'tis centuries'” and yet
      Feels shorter than the Day
      I first surmised the Horses' Heads
      Were toward Eternity'”


      One of my favorite poems ever, Emily Dickinson's poem #712. I love its characterization of Death as a kind gentleman, someone not to be feared. I feel modern society could do with adopting that view of death a little more often.

      Today I learned that, since this poem is in common meter, it can be sung to the Gilligan's Island theme tune (minus the part with the names)...Some liberties need to be taken with the rhythm, but otherwise it works. Try it.

      Perceptions forever changed...

      (Alternatively, it also works to Amazing Grace.)

      Yes, I did learn about this from the alt-text on today's xkcd. >_>

    • Christmas Morning

      My mom just replaced all the air fresheners in the house with apple cinnamon scented ones--the same smell as they all had when I was home over Christmas break. Now at random times during the day I need to remind myself that it's the end of August, it's not snowing, and I won't be getting any presents.

      On top of that, one of the local radio stations is playing Christmas music.

      SO CONFUSING @___@

      is AWESOME.

      I haven't even had that much time to get into it, and I've gotta say, I'm already very very impressed.

      First off, the game is gorgeous. I'm used to RTS games having crappy graphics so that a lot of units can be on-screen at once with minimal frame rate drops. I haven't run into that problem here, and it still looks great. I love how the style of each race is the same as the first game, but with extra details and sharper graphics that today's cards can support. SO PRETTY.

      Also, while some of the units have stayed the same as those in the first game--I've noticed this especially while playing Zerg--and many of the buildings are the same, the new additions make a lot of sense and are very easy to integrate into strategies from the "old" game. The tech tree is largely the same, which is nice IMO because I have a difficult enough time remembering it in the first place, and the balance between races is still excellent, as far as I can tell.

      I hope I get some time to play the campaign because it seems quite interesting. From the cutscenes I've been able to watch, the voicework sounds great. =)

      Anyway, Superjim, TheRecreator, and I have been playing some games together, and it's been a lot of fun. =D If you want to join up, message me with your character name and ID number, and I'll send you a friend request so you can pwn my out-of-practice behind in a match or two. ^___^

      I was messing around in my 3D rendering program today and came across a cloud setting I really liked...so I made a picture with it. Full-size 1900x1080 is available by clicking on the smaller image there.

      Now with less blue because that was kinda boring.

      I had a dream last night that I had a fan club...

      It was three girls.

      Me: So...Why are you following me around like this?
      Girl 1: 'Cuz you're a nerd! =D
      Girl 2, 3: Yeah!
      Me: >__________<

      My subconscious sucks. Can't even make me a decent fan club. smiley4.gif

      Thanks! That was exactly what I needed.

      I'll be submitting the improved avatar soon.

      HA HA HA! So did I.

      Post everything in LFTO and you'll be welcomed with open arms. There's quite a few forums you might have interest in. I've created at least three and they're still open for opinions. Get used to LFTO and you'll gain some more friends.

      I haven't entirely written off Inkscape yet - I just find its interface unfamiliar. Is it significantly different from Illustrator, or do I simply need to put in an hour or two to get familiar with it?

    • TheRecreator

      10 years ago

      Not on your own - I was almost the recipient of a free serial number for Illustrator from a guy who was purchasing a suite of Adobe video software, but I convinced the guy to take a second look at the program. So, in essence, I'm out at least $200 now. There's still the option of using my school's computer software library, but then I can't make the avatars at my own convenience. smiley2.gif

      I haven't been charging money for my avatars.

      Then again, I might need to fundraise to buy my own copy of Illustrator...hmm...

      Nah, I wouldn't do that. Unless you said something like, "First post" on my profile.
