      So today was some kind of holiday? The birthday of some dead guy? Whatever, I was never good at history.

      Callously ignoring dead Presidents' birthdays aside, today was a very tiring day, and I didn't even do anything besides sleep and play video games. I am beginning to wonder if my largely bread and ramen based diet is killing me. Very well could be, but it can't be much less healthy than fast food all the time.

      I finally pulled my PSP out of retirement, as it had been largely unused for quite some time. I grabbed a demo of God of War: Chains of Olympus and ran through it. Oh my Jesus Christ I want that game. I never got the chance to play the PS2 games, but they looked amazing, and this one looks almost as good. It looks to be fucking epic. I'm happy to see this game finally coming out; I've been looking forward to this since they announced it a year ago.

      That's about all that's happening on my end. I'm gonna go get some food. Hope you guys are well. And thanks for putting up with my rant yesterday; I feel better for having gotten that crap off my mind.

      Peace,
      Me.

      P.S. I would totally do this for the lulz.

    • Life sucks

      LISdjfzEskjflsjlkdhk. I'm sorry, I couldn't think of a better sentence to kick off this journal. I'm just going to rant about a few things. Feel free to ignore this.

      1) My Gmail account has been locked due to "Unusual activity" and will remain so for up to 24 hours. I was given no further explanation. While some may see it as unreasonable to be upset over the loss of what is essentially a free service, they do have ads and it is my primary account. I have other email accounts, but as I rarely use them, I may as well have no email right now. So that sucks.

      2) I don't know that I've ever mentioned it here, but I am a virgin. I have not ever had sex, and the one girlfriend I did have was for only 4 months, and was in my junior year of high school. Nothing happened. This is not what bugs me; frankly I couldn't care less, besides the occasional bought of sexual frustration. No, what bugs me is that someone tried to insult be my calling me a "fucking virgin" and my brain has struggled with this phrase. I doubt the person who said it understood the irony in the slightest, but my brain is melting trying to comprehend such a thing.

      3) Not only irony over stupid phrases, but irony in general life. In high school, I couldn't get my license because in California to get it under 18 you need to take classes. Well I wanted to take the classes, but you have to pay for them now. To pay for them, I'd have to do so myself, requiring a job. I couldn't get a job because I didn't have enough time without a car to drive there. See the pointless loop? Even now, when looking at jobs in fields that interest me, I see they always want some kind of experience in that field. Do they understand how self-defeating that is? How about this one: to have the kind of fun I enjoy, i.e. video games, movies, etc., requires money. Money requires a job. Getting a job means I no longer have the free time to spend on things I enjoy.

      4) Retarded roommates that don't give me my mail, but instead leave it on a table under a bunch of their papers so I only find it a week later when I go looking for it, because I've been expecting something, and never got it. Seriously, when I check the mail, if there is stuff for them, I clear out space in the kitchen (since you walk right into the kitchen from the front door here) and leave it there, plain as day. I don't stick it behind the microwave under my newspaper. Bastards.


      I think that's enough ranting for today. Let's look at the positives, eh? I'm getting the hell away from this place, which gets me away from problems 2 and 4, and hopefully will give me the motivation to solve 3 myself. I am just hoping 1 will end soon.

      ρεаςε,
      Me.

      P.S. I don't know if that 'peace' will look right, as I used a bunch of Greek (and one Cyrillic) letters instead of the normal Latin alphabet. I was bored.
      P.P.S. Un foto. I think this perfectly captures the sheer brilliance of the people I see every day.

      I'm tired. Went in to try and get work at the Labor Ready place, but still nothing. Winter's a bad time to be looking for temp work like that, I guess. It wouldn't suck so much if it didn't cost me $2.50 each day for the bus; at this rate, I'll go broke trying to make money.

      Started playing through Half-Life 2 again. I got the Orange Box, and started it, but after beating Portal, I just didn't care much anymore. But I was tired of my laggy Internet connection getting me killed in Halo 3, so I started it up again. Finally got to the gravity gun, which is the entire point of the game, in my opinion. I love me some Zero-Point Energy Field Manipulating. I really do love this game, if only for that... tool. It's not really a weapon, per se, but it sure can be lethal if you have enough crap lying around to throw! smiley0.gif

      I will say that there are two things I really don't like about the game: driving missions, and the loading screens. The vehicles in the game have the absolute worst handling of any game vehicle I've ever played, something that just isn't kosher this day and age. Then there's the loading screens, every 5 minutes or less. I don't know why there are so many screens for some of these areas, where I won't spend more than a minute or two before it has to load the next area. Other than those gripes, though, it's an excellent game.

      I guess that's it for me right now. I'm gonna go kill me some more headcrabs and Combine.

      Peace,
      Me.

      P.S. Too soon?

      So apparently it's been several days since I made a journal? I thought I was going to make one yesterday, but I guess I never got around to it. I'm too young to have a memory this bad.

      Nothing much has been happening. Tomorrow I am going to a temp work place, because as much as I hated my job, it was a needed source of income. So instead of a real job, I will be doing manual labor for probably more money than I was making before, according to my friend who's used the same temp service many times before.

      Which, the more I think about it, is actually kind of depressing. He was doing less work for more money. I hate life.

      In other news, my roommate (and friend's brother) is a fucking retard. We have a setup here that he pays the rent every month, and we pay him back our share. Well I paid my share several days ago, and we got a notice today saying he still hadn't paid rent, and if he didn't do so within 3 days we'd be kicked off the property. So my friend went and found his brother and told him to pay the fucking rent and hopefully he does so, or I am going to be forced to kick his ass.

      Sigh. I hate people, too.

      Peace,
      Me.

      P.S. Hahaha... they misspelled 'center'.

      P.P.S. FYI - that was sarcasm. I know some countries spell it 'centre'.

    • Yay for touch tone!

      dragonmanweb What's this?

      Hooray for touch tone menus and interminable waits and being shuffled back and forth from department to department only to eventually find out that I need to call someone else! I'm being really sarcastic!

      I filed for unemployment in Oregon, but apparently, as I have worked in California in the last 18 months, I don't qualify. I can, however, apply for California unemployment. Well, as it would turn out, I can't do that, as I've worked out of California in the past 18 months. Sigh. Tomorrow I'm going to call California's department of unemployment, and hopefully get this worked out. There is no way I'm talking on the phone again today, though.

      Rubik's news! Actually it's my news, but Rubik did make the Cube. Enough double talk. I recorded a video of me solving my cube in just over 3 minutes, which is about as fast as I can go because my cube needs to be lubricated. I think I could shave off at least half a minute or more if I wasn't fighting friction. You can check that out here.

      Speaking of videos, Kevin and I have decided to put off any more videos for out Potato Mouse Productions site until after we move back to California, because we're bad enough as it is getting things done, and trying to pack and organize and clean AND do a video or two? We just don't have it in us. So come March, we'll be back up with new videos.

      That's all. Hope you guys are well.

      Peace,
      Me.

      P.S. Relevant.

      So I just solved my Rubik's Cube about 20 fucking times. My hands and my eyes hurt. I can get it in under 10 minutes now, but every couple of solves I get stuck on a pointless error and have to backtrack and it's irritating me.

      It probably doesn't help that I've had no sleep for the past 21 hours. Oh well.

      Halo 3! I beat it on Heroic, and started it on Legendary with a buddy of mine. I also got several more achievements, and just found out that there is a big team gametype in ranked online, which I did not know. I can't figure out if I'm really that stupid, or if that is new. Maybe both.

      I think I might go get a little sleep now.

      Peace,
      Me.

      P.S. I want an island like this.

      I'm so tired of the goddamn Flood. Seriously! What the fuck is up with those assholes?

      I've been playing through the campaign of Halo 3 again, this time on Heroic instead of Normal. I'm also getting all the skulls and achievements I can, including Marathon Man and the meta-game ones. So it's really slow going. I'm about 2/3 done, and it's been something like 11-12 hours total. Fuck. That. Shit.

      Next time, I'm getting my buddies on here, or I ain't doing it. The ally A.I. is the stupidest, most fucking retarded crap ever. They don't do shit except die or get me killed. Grunt Birthday Skull really helps take the edge off, though. Too fucking bad I'm at the part with nothing but Flood!! $%*#&!

      During a food break, I watched 3:10 to Yuma. Excellent movie. I highly recommend it.

      Peace,
      Me.

      P.S. If you can't see why this is awesome, you need to just leave.

      Meh, I don't care about sports.


      In other news, I slept most of today away! That's not really news, but I'm pissed that my alarm didn't wake me up. Or that it didn't wake me up more than enough to turn it off and go back to sleep. smiley4.gif

      So that's basically it for today. I'm going to go try and salvage something of the day, and get a few things done that I've been needing to.

      Peace,
      Me.

      P.S. I want to be like this when I'm old.

      My magnificence! Most epic domination I have ever achieved. Swords on Snowbound. It's... it's just so beautiful. smiley0.gif

      In other, less glorious news, it's raining. And that makes me not want to go outside, even though we need to go shopping. We need milk and butter, so we can have more delicious macaroni and cheese. Even though, technically, there are no macaroni noodles in the box. Macaroni noodles are little tubes. These noodles are spirals.

      Oh, back to Halo 3 news. For those who have the game, you must go to my file share page and download a video. It's the fourth one, labeled "Swords 002." I didn't do very well on the game, but that one clip is so hilarious it was worth it. The "Swords 001" video is pretty good, too, but nothing tops the other one.

      I guess that's it. Back to Halo 3 now. Or perhaps a nap, as my hands are getting kind of tired.

      Peace
      Me.

      P.S. This is from the "Swords 001" video. He really, really wanted to get me. And failed.

      dragonmanweb What's this?

      Two weeks until Singles Awareness Day. It also happens to be my brother's birthday, which I'm sure he loves. Only, you know, not.

      Halo 3 news, because I am a Halo 3 junkie these days: I got the beautiful Fear the Pink Mist achievement. God bless the needler, eh? I didn't even realize I was going to get it when I did, and then I was like, "What the hell? I had that many kills with this thing?" It was fun.

      I need to start doing more packing. I have a month, but time fucking flies when you're not paying attention. I'm going to try to keep up as much as possible during the move with things on here and other places, but I don't know how long it will take. I shouldn't be away from Internet for more than a few days at most, but complications can always arise.

      Not much else is going on right now. I have to go in today for my last paycheck; it should have gotten there by now. I don't look forward to that at all. I think they were pretty pissed that I just quit out of the blue, but considering the number of people to have done so in the past several months, I don't know why they'd be surprised. So wish me luck on that.

      Peace,
      Me.

      P.S. Slightly overenthusiastic?
