      So I've found myself getting much more into gaming and community sites such as this lately and as such I can't help but be exposed to those sometimes funny, sometimes goofy, sometimes completely ridiculous internet acronyms...

      Now when I say internet acronym, let's be clear what that means. An internet acronym is a word formed from the initial letters of a series of words (for example: LoL=Laughing out loud). However, as these are internet acronyms these tend to be exclusive to the digital domain..that is to say that people generally do not use these acronyms in day-to-day conversation.

      Ok, so now we are all on the same page. There are some very weird acronyms on the net...the more common ones I'm sure you are all aware of...WTF (what the f***), LOL (laughing out loud), ROTFL (rolling on the floor laughing), NM (never mind), NP (no problem), TTYL (talk to you later), JK (just kidding), IMA (I am going to be a), HHTWSFIACM (ha ha that was so funny i almost crapped myself), and of course, ITYFTLTIDHAFB (I'm telling you for the last time I don't have any freakin bananas).

      Now all of these are very fine and dandy, but I am having a new experience centered around some of these internet acronyms and I'm really not sure wha to think of it just yet...

      Is it a problem if I've begun to think in these internet acronyms??

      For example, a normal conversation inside my head sounds something like this:

      Ben: HTWU? (hey there, what's up?)
      Lady Friend: Not too much thanks, and you?
      Ben: NTM,T. TWDIOTP? (Not too much, thanks. To what do I owe the pleasure?)
      Lady Friend: I just wanted to tell you how much I love you and how handsome you are and I'd like to take you out back and do all manner of naughty things to you!
      Ben: :^O (I'm shocked, but OK)

      Some parts of that conversation may have been exaggerated...

      Anyway, to conclude...Do you know of any crazy, unusual or just down right wrong internet acronyms AND do you think I'm going crazy because I've begun thinking in internet acronyms?

      Until next time.

      So as you are likely aware (being that you are reading my journal, and assuming you have been for at least the last month) I work at a local (see: Calgary) Gaming Centre.

      Now don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my job and alot of the people I deal with on a regular basis are some of the most amazing and interesting people I've ever met. However, being that they are also gamers and that some of them simply can't be bothered to do anything even half-assed I have a single quelp with my current situation...

      People peeing on the toilet seat...who the hell pees on the freakin' toilet seat?!? Do you even know how disgusting and down-right dirty that is?? I mean, really, you can't even be bothered to lift the seat and aim ever so slightly, so as to avoid peeing on the seat....

      why? Why?? WHY???

      Anyways, I'm off to clean a very dirty toilet seat...

      I hope that you all burn in hell because I know that you are out there reading this and laughing at my misfortune...shame on you...shame on you...

      I've seen some pretty funny stuff on this site, but there are some things which are just too good to pass up...

      ..This one I've seen before on quite a few profiles..it's true...too true...
      92% of teenagers has moven on to rap. If you are one of the 8% thats still into real music, copy and paste this in your profile RAP SUCKS!!!

      ..This on the other hand, I think I split a gut when I read this...OH MY GOSH...the sad part is that it's true of course...
      92% percent of the teen population would be dead if Abercrombie and Fitch or Hollister said it wasnt cool to breathe anymore. Repost this if you are one of the 8% who would be laughing your ass off.

    • Well, its over...

      So after tons of planning, scheming, plotting and hard work our event is finished. It was one hell of an event, we had lots of people who all came together to join us for RvB. In one word...AMAZING!

      Thanks so much for all your support, we couldn't have done this without you!

      And, we had a very special guest...your very favourite Game character..The MasterChief. That's right, the MasterChief showed up @ RvB Calgary, it was definitely an experience I won't soon forget.

      Thanks to all who came.

      (I shouldn't be saying this, but we already have plans for another one next year...or maybe even before then... :D)

      Disclaimer: I just finished playing games all night long @ SBX (14 hrs) and i've consumed 5 bottles of bawls, so if this post makes no sense...that's too bad.
      You've been warned!

      ----

      The name says it all...you remember that big kerfuffel i made over getting a job at Switchbox...

      Well, I have great news! I start Wednesday @ the north store!!!

      Now, no one come visit me because it'll be my first day and I want to seem at least semi-professional...in other words...if you come visit me I'll just disavow you, completely forget that you exist and never talk to you again..or in the case of those who i've never met...uh...well....i'll never leave mod points for you on RvB...muahahahaha

      But i'll be working up there at first. They want to get me going as a night manager (I know, it's a fancy title!!) which comes with a nice big paycheck on top of free SBX time!!!

      But seriously...Yay for me!

      I'll keep you all posted.

      So I got this e-mail today...said something about getting a job at Switchbox...fitting me into the schedule or some other crazy business like that...

      .....GETTING A JOB AT SWITCHBOX!!!!

      So I called up and spoke with one of the owners, cause I hadn't heard back from him and he was like "Woh, I like just sent you an e-mail, but i'm working up the schedule and trying to fit you in here!"

      So as it turns out, the interview last week was just a formality...

      So come down sometime later this month and visit me!! I have no idea when I'll be working, but come down sometime and even if I'm not there, hang out and have a good time!

      See you there!

      I've been looking at my current job situation and thinking hard about how this job, which was very recently serving me very well, is not doing so as much...as it turns out, the company that I work for treats their employees like crap. Now I don't know about you, but I don't really care much to be treated like crap...so, based on that, it's time to move on...

      Enter "Switchbox", what seems like a central hub or artery of gaming here in Calgary. They have dominated the "Internet/Gaming cafe" market for years here in Calgary, and now I'm gonna go get a job there!

      I submitted my resumé there just a few days ago and if things go according to plan, I'll be working there by the end of the month!

      Very excited, and eagerly anticipating their response! I'll keep you all posted!

      UPDATE: Turns out that the guy responsible for the hiring was on vacation... and here I was saying to myself, it's kind of strange that no one had gotten back to me...go figure...anywho, I spoke with Shane, the guy responsible for hiring and he told me that I'd likely hear back from him sometime later this week!! Hurray!!

      UPDATE: I had an interview @ SBX on Wednesday August 16, 2006. Everything went really well, they were talking to me as if I already had the job... I also got to meet another of the owners which was cool. I should know tomorrow whether or not I have the job! Saturday is my last day at my current job and I expect I'll be back at it by the end of next week...

      Oh of course the sex store is always a pleasure and is always an adventure when you drop by there. Hell I even picked up an application to work there because I'm completely comfortable with it all. I really do find it funny that I bumped into my old math teacher. But it's a shame the night had to be ruined by all of what happened. I dont believe in violence so yeah.. >_< Thanks for actually taking the time to read it all.

      Thank you thank you thank you for responding to my journal entry that means so much to me because I really am going through a rough time right now and I have always had a hard time dealing with guys and I always seem to attract shy guys and guys that bottle themselves up and it just gets me so upset. So every piece of advice helps whether it's the same or different because I like to know how the majority of guys feel. So thank you once again. smiley1.gif *big hugs*
