    • A little holiday question.

      13 years ago


      Does it bother you to recieve gifts? If so, what is it that bothers you about it? Is it the fact that you don't know what it is? Or maybe the fact that you feel quilty for some reason?

      Just so you don't think I'm a creep, I'll give you my answer.

      I do have a little bit of a problem recieving gifts from friends, but only if A) I didn't get them anything, B) what they got me was more expensive that what I got them.

      I have no idea why this is, but I am really weird about it. I'll give you an example of why I'm weird.

      Every year I give gifts to family and friends kids, not so much for the adults, and every year I choose one family to go nuts on. The reason I do this is because I feel Christmas is for the children. I Don't celebrate the religious holiday, but the comercial one. I also choose one family to solurge on because if I didn't I'd go crazy for everyone.

      Anyways, I do this every year, and every year one or two of them parents give me something... and I feel guilty for not getting them anything. Yet I just spent alot on their kids. By alot I mean Gameboy Advances (given out 6 in the last 3 years) and Gamecubes (4 in the last 3 years) plus games, and stocking stuffers. Yet I still feel bad if they give me something.

      Does anyone else feel this way? I know they say it's better to give than to recieve, but am I taking it too far? I guess I ask to see if I'm alone in this, or if there are more people that feel the same way.

    • Pardon me.....

      I have nothing to say.

      Okay, that's a George Carlin joke, but I stole it, much like I do all my jokes.

      The real reason for this journal entry is to say nothing. That's right, I have nothing of any importance to say, but I felt like posting a journal. I supposed I could have go out and found a humorous website to link to, or reviewed a movie or something, but I thought it would be more fun to have you waste your time by reading some useless nonsense. Wasn't that fun everyone?

      To be perfectly honest, the real reason I have nothing to say is because I have so much on my mind I can't scrape enough of it together to make any sense at all. There's so much I'd like to say, but I just can't find the words. So I'll just kinda babble, who knows maybe something worth while will sneak out.

      More or less what I'm saying is... Hi. I haven't forgotten about everyone here on RvB, even though I don't get on much to say so. I do read all your journals, even if I don't always post a reply.

      I'm gonna end here. I'll update once I get my thoughts in order. Later everyone, and thanks for not leaving after that first sentence.

    • Let's observe a moment of silence...

      for TCG_Chris. The poor, poor man. His wife is... his wife is.... It's just too horrific, I can't say it.

      But I must, his pain must be known. His wife is... DRAGGING HIM TO GO SEE 'RENT'!

      Oh god, the horror, the horror. He really needs our support on this one.

    • Micro Contest Time.

      13 years ago


      What do I mean by "Micro Contest"? It means that I'm looking for suggestions, and the one that's chosen (if one is chosen) will get some mods for it. What do I need suggestions for? Hold on a second and I'll tell ya. Some people are so impatient.

      Here's the deal, a friend of mine is the guild master of a World of Warcraft guild, but has grown weary of the current guild name, Stormwind Troopers. He is looking for a new guild name and was hoping someone here could help. Actually, he was a bit nervous of what some people here might suggest, but I talked him into it.

      Here are the limitations.

      1) 24 characters (including spaces) is all there is to work with.
      2) Try to avoid animal names in the name. (This is mine, animal names are way overused)
      3) He want's something 'Cool and not retarded'. Those are his own words.

      I will not be judging, he will, so don't feel you need to kiss up to me, but you may if you like.
      If he choses the name you suggest it will become the new guild name and I'll be giving you some mods. How many? I'm not sure yet, let's wait and see how many I have when the time comes.

      For the record, yes I play WoW as well, and I am a guild member. I suggested a name, but it was too long.

      P.S. If you can come up with something really cool that includes the name 'Blackguard', I'll give even more mods. He really seems to like that name.

    • Are you having a nerd Thanksgiving?

      Are you not sure? Would you like to know? If you answered yes, have no fear. Just hop over to TCG_Chris's journal to find out.

      For the record, number 3 is my favorite.

    • It's time for a hunt, Y'all.

      13 years ago


      A scavenger hunt that is. One Mr. JJMcFly is having a nifty little scavenger hunt. The man is goiving out a literal buttload of points and you could get a piece.

      I know most of the people on my friends list are on his as well, but for those that are not go check it out. It's bound to be a blast and I'm sure someone will embaress themselves. Much like I do when I try to spell big words.

      Oh yeah, you can find it by clicking here.

    • Aliright, change of plans.

      Okay, so I was gonna give out the prizes for my costume contest tonight on my night off, well I no longer have tonight off. I was asked by my boss if I could possibly work tonight, and since I didn't have anything major planned (with the exception of the prizes) I said yes. That and the fact that there is no shipment tonight, so it'll be a cakewalk.

      Now I have Friday night off instead, so I will be giving prizes then. The good news there is that if there are any last minutes entries, they now have a few more minutes. Unless of course something changes again, but I don't believe it will. *glares at TCG_Chris* Will it, Chris?

    • Quick cleaning.

      13 years ago


      Okay, with everyone else doing so, I just dropped a couple people from my friends list. Fear not, it was merely a couple of people who haven't posted on here in quite some time and I don't believe they'll be missed. If you are one of them and upset about it, let me know and we'll discuss it.

    • Halloween..

      13 years ago


      Is finally upon us, and as such I seem to have gotten the night off work. So what will I do? Sit around on the internet all night? NO. Sit by the door and hand out candy to the boys and girls? NO. I get the pleasure of taking three little monsters out trick-or-treating. I'm sure I'll have help doing this, but it'll still pretty much suck. Hopefully this year it won't be ass numbingly cold and we can stay out for more the 30 mins at a time, but I'm not holding my breath.

      On a more forum based note, I have decided that the judging for the costume contest will take place on Thursday night, why Thursday you ask? Because it's my next night off. This means that anyone who wishes to place a last minute entry will have until then to do so. At that point I will decide which prizes I'm actually gonna go with, some will be nice and some... not so much. Be sure to tune in then, I'm sure it'll be lots of fun.
