RPG Ad

I just saw an ad for an RPG taking place for "those who wish they had grown up in the midwest in the early nineties."

...Is like a 5-year-old running that game, or am I so old that the nineties has become a time of legend? I mean...I did grow up in the midwest in the nineties!

I double-checked the dates, thinking there was a typo and the poster meant the early nineteenth century or nineteen hundreds or something. No. They meant like 1990.

Book Meme

* Grab the nearest book.
* Open it to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
* Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.


I'm cheating. The nearest book to me is actually the phonebook, but I've decided that that would be boring. So, instead, I'm grabbing the second nearest, Crime and Punishment.

"A woman takes him by the hand and tries to lead him off, but he tears himself away and runs back to the horse."

Geekery

Q: Narcissistic or histrionic? Discuss.

Rawr

God, I hate role-playing with my boyfriend. It's like he *knows* what I want to play and decides to make his character the exact. same. fucking. thing.

So now I'm super pissy and not wanting to game, but John came all the way down and actually fucking showed up for once so I feel sort of obligated.

Goddamnit.

I feel like there was something else I was going to write about in my journal entry, but I don't remember what it was anymore because I'm just so incredibly pissed. This is my way of walking away for a minute in order to cool off and not kill Chad or tear up my character sheet.

I was hoping I'd have something to reply to, but everyone knows I'm supposed to be gaming so nobody is responding quickly to my posts. Damn it all. At least I like my online characters and no one else is freaking stealing my ideas.

Savannah Blip

It's recently come to my attention that Savannah won't survive Oblivion. This makes me incredibly sad, as I adore the character and I've even won an award for people loving to hate her. The problem is I made her as part of a threesome -- she's a twin, and there was also an older brother. Both of the other players flaked, leaving poor Savannah all alone... She's anorexic, has one friend is an epic asshole, and generally will probably either commit suicide or starve herself to death. Things aren't looking good at this point, which has inspired me to write something up for her. If things go the way I think they're going to go, I'll have this done and just be able to copy and paste it over. If things turn out differently, well, hooray for creative outlets?

Blip!Collapse )

Oops!~

I've gone a little overboard.  Again.  Perhaps it's because d00m has been so slow, but for the past week I've been occupying myself with new RPGs.  At this point, I'm a little afraid for myself.

OCs:
d00m: Moderator Responsibilities plus like a bazillion characters.  Thanks, Purple!  (Yahoo Groups)
Colony: The bane of my existence.  This is the single most elite game I've ever joined.  Two characters here.  Fortunately, things are quiet.  (Yahoo Groups)
ISS Tyranny: Ah, my fascination with the alternate universe of Star Trek.  Only one character aboard the Tyranny...and he likes to torture people.  (Yahoo Groups)
Oblivion: Your typical horror-aboard-the-cruise-ship routine.  I'm playing a total slut.  Oh, Savannah.  (IJ: savannahjames)
Metamorphose: Added this one on a whim.  I like to play big kitties, and I'm curious to see how it will turn out. (IJ: white_growl)
Daingerfield: This one is very Deadlands...  The mods are being weirdly picky about the Mormon thing.  Ah, well.  Missa is playing my character's sister-wife, bless her.  It's going to be a fantastic time!  (LJ: wife_one)

Canons:
Harmony: Shawn Spencer (IJ: i_eat_pineapples) and Dax (IJ: host_eight).  Unfortunately, Dax's husband just left the game.  Sigh.  This game has a really great premise...  Characters are kidnapped and brainwashed into having Pleasantville lives.  Very cool.
Urbiphage: This seems to have a very cool steampunky setting.  I am *so* reading these books sometime soon.  I get to play Bigby~  So awesome!  (LJ: artic_wolfman)

Discounting d00m, in which I have far too many active characters to count, I have 9 characters in almost as many RPGs.  I think I'm going to start running around like a chicken with my head cut off when these things all start up...  Somebody stop me from looking into more?

Yearly Meme

I keep forgetting to check/post on LJ ever since I left Paixao.  And, as usual, how-many-months-down-the-road, I'm kicking myself for leaving.  Erg, I'm so washy!  I was delighting in Glitch last night and reliving my dreams for Weyoun.

Anyway, here's the yearly meme -- maybe the last one, if I don't start posting regularly again...

Year in Review Meme

January: I have a glowing Christmas penguin in my room.  I don't know why.

February: Yesterday, I was required to dress up for a tour of Watlow in Winona for my management class, including the ever-terrible heels.

March: It's been a very long time since I've posted a blip on my LJ.

April: I hate April Fools Day.

May: I R GROWED UP AND GRADUATED.

June: It slightly annoys me that I spent most of the night last night trying to find a save point in KHII rather than sleeping.

July: How dare they license their products so that I can't watch them on Crunchyroll!

September: I HATE CHILDREN.

Hrm!

Put your MP3 player thingy on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results. The first line of the 21st is your title.


I Need Your Arms Around Me

Hey, man, please don't make a sound
I don't wanna talk
Well, I remember every little thing
I heard there was a secret chord

Drew looks at me
They're gonna clean up your looks
God made the mountains
This is what it's like when worlds collide

Don't lie to yourself
November of '63
Here you come knockin' on my door
I remember, I remember when I lost my mind

Is it worth it?
Head under water
I'm tearing away
One more time and you'll be dead

Thursday night, everything's fine
Last December I met a girl
Penetrate, penetrate all the simple minds
You've all seen a man at the liquor store begging for some change
