      ....I just had the most Red vs. Blue Church/Caboose conversation ever with my friends. While playing video games/chatting.

      Val: I'm hungry
      Zach: For what.
      Val: For food
      Daniel - FOOD TIME!
      Zach - No duh
      Carl - Why'd you shut it off?
      Val: Shut what off
      Carl - Your computer
      Val - It's dying
      Nate - Who's dying?
      Zach - Your sex life
      Nate - That's a thing not a person
      Daniel - What's a thing?
      Carl - You're a thing
      Daniel - I have a thing.
      Nate - No seriously who's dying?
      Daniel - I do!
      Zach - That's debatable
      Nate - Your face is debatable
      Mark - Who turned off my computer?
      Val - It's going to shut off
      Nate - What's going to shut off
      Val - The computer
      Mark - My computer
      Nate - Oh let it die then
      Mark - Fuck you
      Nate - Fuck your couch
      Mark - I already did
      Daniel - Twice

      Then after everyone shut up for about ten seconds, my friend Trent, who hadn't said a word goes
      Trent: I'm hungry now.

    • Playing Catch Up

      8 years ago

      Valarious

      I finally have some down time in my life. I recently quit a job of mine so my sleep schedule is back on. Also, my first novel is completely done and just going through technical processes. My second and third novels are currently being edited. Looks like it's finally Xbox time!!!

      For the next couple weeks, I won't be playing any new games (until Dragon Age 2 comes out). I'm more of a completion achievement whore than play all the games achievement whore.

      So, I'll be on Reach playing Legendary if anyone's interested. To be honest, I'd go through it by myself to get both achievements but I've only played the first two levels more than once and it's been a while since the others - not to mention I was playing with others who had played the other levels more than once. Therefore, I need a little bit of assistance to get where I need to go. I get incredibly freaking lost in any game (and in real life).

      I will also be playing some Fable 3, Fable 2, Dragon Age, Halo 3, and Marvel Ultimate Alliance.

      Halo Reach - 48/56
      Fable 3 - 32/50
      Dragon Age - 46/56
      Marvel Ultimate Alliance - 54/58
      Halo 3 - 70/79
      Fable II -50/66

      Anyone is welcome to join if you also need some achievables.

    • Epic Show

      8 years ago

      Valarious

      Hey ya'll - although we didn't have many shows, Stabliized as of yesterday, isn't going to be existent. Too many complications with schedules and with Mark's wrist (our lead guitarrist) we can't exactly do a lot of concerts without him.

      However, I was invited to do one of my favorite shows of the year at my favorite place to play. The show is named "Vampires vs. Cheerleaders." Sounds funny? Well, it's really cool. Six girls versus six other girls. One team is called "Vampires" and they dress up in darker styles, sing songs by Evanescence, Within Temptation, Unsun, etc. Then the Cheerleaders, also dressing up, go with more popular, upbeat songs from singers like Katy Perry, Avril Lavigne, and yes....Lady Gaga. The whole point of the concert is for people to see a really cool show and the winning team is decided upon which one can make the crowd scream the loudest. Another catch is that the bands don't know who will be on which team until two days until the concert. So it becomes kind of like a reality show, figuring out who can make the best costumes, dance routines, come up with the best songs and sing them the best, and so on.

      But it's ALWAYS worth the effort and it's always so much fun. If any of you Illinoians are in the vacinity on February 9, I urge you to come and see the show - it's free!!!

      P.S. I have been coordinated as team leader versus my own best friend (who was the girl who invited me). I'm not sure why, but I have a list of songs we'll be doing for both sides. We do know our teams ahead of time, so I've been talking with them. Tell me what you think of the lineup!

      INTRO - (BOTH TEAMS SING THIS ONE) - Hey Hey - Superchick

      Cheerleaders:
      1) California Girls - Katy Perry
      2) We Got The Beat - The GoGos
      3) Wishes - Superchick
      4) Lady Marmalade - from Moulin Rouge
      5) Poker Face - Lady Gaga
      6) Take It Off - Keisha (NOT MY IDEA)
      6) Hot - Avril Lavigne
      7) Take It Off - The Donnas

      Vampires:
      1) The Howling - Within Temptation
      2) Going Under - Evanescence
      3) Take Back - What Remains
      4) Flyleaf - Again
      5) Enjoy The Silence - Lacuna Coil
      6) Whispers - Unsun
      7) Come Undone - Duran Duran

      FINAE - ROCK WHAT YOU GOT - SUPERCHICK

    • Add-A-Scene!

      Valarious

      For those of you who like to read stuff.
      “Most people create like a bucket list before they die but I never really thought about it until these past couple weeks.” Carter scratched at the back of his neck contemplatively, not really sure about how to continue. “It is day fifteen and I’m still here at the Redford house. It’s still raining. And there is still stuff going on outside that forces us to stay inside. So yeah…nothing’s changed. I decided today that I was going to-”

      “Son of a bitch!”

      Jumping only slightly, Carter swiveled his head towards the tv in the living room where Ryler Redford was sitting, playing some online multiplayer game on the Xbox. “Dammit Ryler, we’ve talked about this.”

      “That cocksucker spawned behind me!”

      Carter sighed and paused the recording, bitterly hitting the red button a little harder than necessary. “I’m trying to work on my documentary.”

      Ryler shifted on the couch, his green eyes glued to the screen. “Yeah, I know. You had me put it on mute, remember? I would have heard him coming if it was on normal volume.”

      Maybe I should put you on mute, Carter thought.

      “Trust me, your sorry ass still would have died,” Tessa added, making him smile a little.

      “Fuck you,” Ryler countered.

      Tessa rolled her eyes and continued to stare out the window. He watched her for a moment as she nervously played with her long, dark curls and then rewound the tape so that he could start again. She’d been watching that window for days.

      “It’ll stop raining later on tonight,” he said, reading her like a book. She had always worn her emotions on her sleeve.

      “That’s what they say but it never does.”

      “I’m telling you,” Ryler added from the couch, propping his feet up on the table. “This is like some kind of fucked up punishment because we fucked everything up. Like God’s wrath or something.”

      “Oh, please,” Tessa argued, turning towards him with a look of disgust. “That’s ridiculous.”

      “No, it’s not. You were thinking it, you’re just mad that I said it first.”

      “What? You know I don’t believe in God.”

      “Oh, really?”

      Here we go again, Carter muttered silently. He’d sworn up and down that his best friends were twenty-one; most days they just acted like they were eight.

      Ryler actually took a moment to look at her from across the room. “I’m pretty certain that wasn’t true a month ago when you were screaming his name in my ear.”

      “You little-”

      “Whoa,” Carter intervened as Tessa’s eyes immediately changed. He stepped towards her, holding her arm back. The fur didn’t need to fly for the eleventh day in a row. Honestly, he was getting tired of playing mediator but at least it gave him something to do. “Guys, let’s just chill.”

      Pleased with himself, Ryler turned back to his game, cursing quietly after he realized that his lack of attention had gotten him killed. Tessa, cheeks pink with anger, walked towards the kitchen like she always did when she was pissed off. Carter didn’t blame her. Ryler knew how to push all her buttons by bringing up their old relationship. It hadn’t helped that they’d only broken up a day before everything had happened. Now they were stuck here. For who knew how long.

      The phone rang and startled him from his thoughts. Ryler flipped around on the couch, his eyes wide as Tessa came from around the kitchen doorway, one hand over her mouth. “Is it…” she started to say, breaking off quietly.

      Carter shrugged and his hands shook as he lifted the phone from the receiver, taking a moment to breathe in deeply before he said, “Hello?” His voice cracked.

      “Carter, is that you?”

      He breathed out one long whoosh of air in relief. False alarm. “Alec – dear God, where have you been, we’ve been waiting-”

      “Carter get everyone out now. They’re quarantining the city.”

      Continued soon by Miss Z. LIke the story so far? Want to add to it? Not part of the Write On group? Bummer. Send me a message and I'll send you an invite.

    • Deja Vu

      8 years ago

      Valarious

      When my late boyfriend Jack was in the hospital during chemotherapy treatments, I had several run-ins with a specific nurse named Mona. She was only five-one in height, had glasses that made her eyes look ten times bigger, and had a very high-pitched squirrelly voice. Now, I am not making fun, I promise, I just don't know how else to really describe her. We had several moments where she would walk in me cuddling in bed with him, walk in with more than twenty people in the room, and generally walk in when it was past vistation hours and find me there. She would never get a security man, she would just simply squawk out something that always sounded like, "You young kids..." and then whatever else she had in mind.

      I haven't seen her in almost two years. Until this morning when she found me asleep (I hadn't intended on spending the night, I just fell asleep) in the chair next to Daniel's bed. At first I thought I was having some weird dream until she was tapping on my shoulder. At first she didn't recognize me until after she yelled at me about visiting hours and the conversation then went like this:

      Mona - You can't stay here unless he's in ICU or you have permission from the doctor.
      Val - Sorry, I fell asleep.
      Mona - You can come back at nine.
      Val - (as nice as possible) It's 8:53.
      Mona - .....Well, I guess it's okay for now. But you can't be here tonight.
      Val - Okay.
      Mona - And no hiding under the bed this time.
      Val - Okay.
      (After she does her stuff and then walks away, going "Oh Lord here we go again")
      Daniel - (Who I did not realize was awake) Maybe you should hide in the bed next time. smiley8.gif

      He is doing fine now and will be released on Monday around one. smiley12.gif Thanks for all the love.

      Sounds interesting, though given the real life basis of most of my characters, it might be hard for me to conduct interviews based on them without getting a weird vibe from the whole thing. Seems like something I might be prepared to do with my original characters once my latest batch of exposition comics is done.

      Hey, did you hear already about tonights Monday night lunar eclipse, it is supposed to be a full eclipse of the moon, I am not totally sure when it is supposed to be visible for all of us here in the central time zone, but I think it is supposed to begin around 11pm "approx" first the moon will turn sort of orange and then go black, and it will be a long time before it comes back out again, it will be cool.

      I love economics. But I don't know what the teacher was teaching.

      *sigh*

      I ran across a similar situation with a math teacher and a student I was tutoring. The student just wasn't getting it the way the teacher was teaching it. So I was asked for help. While instructing the student, the student would go 'but that's not the way the teacher does it!'. Then I reply with 'the way the teacher is teaching it isn't working, so forget everything the teacher has taught you and learn my way. I'll not only teach you how to solve the problems, I'll show you how to prove your answer is right using a second method. This way you are proving your answer is correct. If you have any problems with your teacher, insist on setting up an appointment for us and we'll have an open discussion on how to do math problems.'

      The student passed the course.

      We never had that discussion with the teacher.

      Shall I come over and have a chat with the economic instructor?

      Realistic sci-fi, starting about the year 1997 and working it's way up through modern times, following an elite air force unit as it combats world-wide terrorism and nuclear war. Some if it is funny, most of it is quite exciting, though it's not the best written work ever. But I find it addictive.

    • osiris32

      Morning? Tis a bit late in my world for morning (especially when I check my alerts many hours late).

      Been busy with work and studies the past few days (especially work). It's amazing how much work I can get done when I stay off of the interwebz (like I did on Monday). Most of my projects are caught up and by the end of next week I should be ready to take off work for a couple of weeks.

    • MissZahrah

      8 years ago

      I can if you'd like, though I dont' feel any particular "ownership" of the idea, as it were. You can do it, then you can write the 'rules' as you want them, sticky the thread and maybe make an announcement as well. smiley1.gif

    • MissZahrah

      8 years ago

      It's a simple idea, as long as people follow the basic functionality of the board.

      Groups have suffered for not being able to watch if a new thread is created... so if a group starts off slow, it's very hard to get it to ever become very active because even if new stuff is posted, no one visits to see it.

      So to get around this, in another group I started the "thread alert thread"... basically, it's a thread, stickied, that people who want to watch the group will put that thread on watch, too. And the only point of the thread is when someone posts a new thread... they post to that 'thread alert' thread as well... and people who watch teh thread, get the alert, and know a new thread was posted.

      I posted you the link to the one I started as an example, and it lists out the "rules" I had came up with for how it worked. And it actually did work very well! But then, people stopped posting new threads anyway and the group sort of lagged, but *if anyone ever posts there again*... I'll know it if they follow that rule! smiley1.gif

      I'm uncertain how you need this applied to your assignment. To me it is obvious that Silver is a driving economic force both as an industrial metal and as an investment.

      I'm a bit fuzzy headed tonight (up late last night playing Reach and drinking Rum), but if you can define the assignment a bit for me, I'll see what I can do.

      Well, my primary means of communication is text chat via Skype. Can we do that? I must note that I'm in the middle of final project season and can't commit to anything creative right this moment, but I'm on Reach just about every night.
