    Mm, I have only some of the ingredients needed. And we're due to some thunder and rain in a moment. I think I'll do retail therapy when DAZ updates the store today. I got Strigoi still in my shopping basket, and today is, IIRC, freebie day. If everything else fails, I'll cook/bake something delicious.


    I'm just, y'know, down? :down: She's going nucking futz, and there's very little I can do to stop it from happening. It is a trainwreck in slow motion.


    Added background, a reason that adds stress: last week, this one older guy in my apartment complex (we have 3 buildings, 12 apartments of various sizes in each), had something go *snap* in his head. He took an axe, went to the nearby mall area shouting that "he's going to kill some kids", and then the police arrived and confiscated his axe, and I gather, collected him to the drunk tank overnight. Next day, after he'd been released (sans axe), a bit later, the police arrived with court order for involuntary commitment for a psych evaluation. Dude, you just don't do shit like that and go consequence-free, especially if you are big burly guy with an axe and raging, booming voice and look like someone out of a horror movie.


    Now, okay. That guy had always been a bit oddish, and was our #2 Suspect to Eventually Go Overboard Nuts, but even so, that kind of outburst had been unprecented in every other fashion; his problems were mostly related to "can't quite figure out how to fit to society at large, and has no idea about how things work, which has resulted quite a lot of broken stuff (that he has recompensated to apartment complex association, though) and verbal warnings not to do X, Y or Z". (For the record, I think I am #3 or #4 suspect on that list; #1 has already gone nuts at several occasions, but apparently has her stuff more under control now.


    ...and this is why I could not live in one of those cheap a** slapped together suburban apartment complexes as they tend to be a magnet for people of questionable personality.

    Aaaactually... this is high-end area -- really nice, comfortable, neat, clean, and cozy, with roomy apartments, with all essentials within walking distance (healthcare, shops, banks, bus stop to city center with ten minute travel). Which goes to prove that you can't figure out who will snap and how things aren't tied with wealth.

    On a lighter and completely unrelated note, I liked how the AI would taunt you in AoE3. They really improved on it since AoM (Where they'd comment when they retreat or before they attack, or taunt you if you're building a bunch of walls or if you blow up one of their town centers). The AI in AoE3 actually seem to remember in random maps (skirmishes) when you soundly trashed them in subsequent games or if you did really terrible in a game they'd comment on that in a later game - especially if you're in a team game. Or perhaps I'm looking into that too deeply and they already are scritped to say bad things about your skill in a game like the AI in CivIV do ^_^;
    .
    I just remember doing reallly bad in a Moderate team game and in the next game one of the AI leaders that was in the previous game was on my team in this one, and she commented on how it was MY fault we lost last time, and "Don't do it again". ^_^;

    ,...where I live, these kinds of incidents usually occur in the cheaply built suburban apartment complexes, y'know, the ones with those crappy metal sliding sash windows and ugly wooden siding. They are also often the ones which catch fire because some numbskull either falls asleep with a lit ciggie, tries to get too "inventive" in the kitchen, or their kids play with matches or a lighter in a clothes closet.


    ...total ick and poo.

    My internet is not working! Now i am going crazy thinking that I can post this, but actually I am just staring at the computer monitor.

    What am I going to do? I stopped listening to music because I was afraid that I was hearing stuff that no one else could.

    i wrote my first novel with pen and paper, my roomy at the time typed it for me on a non-dos compatible word processor. when words are flowing you don't need a computer, it's actually in the way cuz stopping to correct typos can shift you back to reality. if you don't have to get up for work tomorrow, why not start writing your story right now, tonight?

    ...I find a compy absolutely necessary as I have severe arthritis and my handwriting looks like a physician's recommendation for a prescription. I have little if any trouble with the creative flow at the keyboard.


    Heck, for my namesake's backstory, I wrote a 110 page novella on a seven year old Toshiba Techra.

    One person's delight is another's curse, I use transdermal meds called Norspan to minimise symptoms of a hypersensitive nervous system. It runs in the family and some male relatives have developed full-blown psychosis in middle age from it. Looks like I won't be joining them but I'd give anything for a normal nervous system. Whatever normal is, I long for some of it sometimes LOL ;)

    Well then -- it seems that my axe-wielding neighbor isn't coming back, considering the way his apartment is being emptied at the moment. Straight into a big dumpster parked under the balcony. It seems that the water damage he also inflicted on the apartment was the final straw and the housing association tore the contract to ittybitty bits. I'm guessing that his surviving relatives and/or warden have taken all important stuff out, and now it is time to take out trash... and based on how long they've been at it this morning, there's lots of it. Dude was apparently a bit of a hoarder.

    Oh hey can anyone here read Japanese? There's a person on FA that's been asking people if they can translate a comic she's been writing but since she can't write in English she's beein doing it in Japanese. She said that if anyone wants to give it a go they've got her permission. She does very nice dinosaurs and dragons - giving them human-like qualities while keeping them looking realistic and not too anime-ish.

    ETA she also loves crows. This is her "Crow Mage" ^_^

    We got a big Spanish population and a street and full of Spanish style bars called Tapas a couple of blocks away, and otre cervesa porporvor gets me nice tasting beer, no exceptions. I know a few Maori proverbs as well like he kotaku rerenga tahi, which I think means a white bird just flew over., but I'm only parroting and not ordering beer :) Better go sleep nao :)

    Mm lessie.,. From top-left to right....
    Perfect Cherry Blossom - Final boss; One of Yuyoku's spells.
    Can't tell. Looks like Remelia or Flandre, but the density is too high for the latter.
    Again can't tell.
    Imperishable Night - Forbidden Arcana: Hourai Elixir. Eirin + Kaguya teaming up on you. Not sure if the "Last Word" optional thing or not.
    Imperishable Night - Extra (Optional) Boss: Fujiawa no Mokou. "Honest Man's Death".
    Imperishable Night - optional mode; Eirin's "Heaven Spider's Butterfly catching web".
    .
    .
    Come to think of it, all of these look like the spells the characters throw at you when doing this extra mode in Imperishable Night.

    I can read Japanese, with the assistance of a dictionary...but it's a struggle and I'm sure I don't have the time to do a translation project. Happy to take a look, though. My Japanese skills have gotten rusty but I'd be glad for the opportunity to polish them off a bit. I know there are others here who are native/fluent Japanese speakers...maybe they don't hang in this thread, though.

    I used to have the entire hiragana and katakana syllabary sets memorized - including the "add-ons" that converted sounds to KA and etc, but after some time of not doing much practicing I've forgotten most if not all of it.
    .
    Besides, she's writing it with kanji characters as well (And no "helper" words that sometimes go above/next to the characters) so even if I did remember them.... ^_^;

    *EDIT* Removed the page. Didn't want to risk mods getting angry despite ukabor having stating before that she doesn't mind it being shared elsewhere.
