    Live action roll play ... is this where people dress up as warriors and shit ?

    You're really better off without the sad bastard (running round playing pretend is for kids)

    Oh and on 15 year old Ex - remember there's a reason hes Ex, I doubt hes improved in the last 11 years.

    Vampires. Mainly.

    Though the weekend I moved out was Harry Potter.

    Not to worry. There won't be any dating going on there. Not... oh no. Things was quite bad even back then. I mean, it's nice to talk old memories, but... no thank you.

    I tried LARPing once just because I thought it sounded fun. Like running around playing pretend like kids. Only pretty much everyone else there was that whiny kid that was constantly complaining about not playing right, following some arbitrary set of rules that only they know, or threatening to kick you out because you're not doing things safely or taking things seriously enough. I'm sorry, but if who I'm playing has had a hundreds year war with come faction, then chances are I'm going to rub my balls on their corpses. That's just being true to my character.

    Thing is - larpers are the kinkiest people I've met - so at least the ones I known would've loved to get balls rubbed on them, being in character or not.

    I think I'd like your LARPers better than mine. A few in the group I was with were pretty homophobic and didn't even like me romping around shirtless. (I was a barbarian!)

    A lot of the people in the local group here are hbtq in one way or the other - homophobia (or being shirtless) is NOT a problem.

    It was more awkward knowing that most people in the room had had sex with each other at one point it the other... though I only played with them ones, but I hung out with them outside of larping back when I was with my ex.

    I used to date a girl who's also bi, she and I broke up a long time ago and stayed friends, but the one bar we went to either one or both of us had either dated or hooked up with most of the staff. It was always funny to see how awkward they'd get when we'd both go up and start flirting at them and comparing notes in front of them.

    Happy? After five or so hours, my grades are all calculated.

    Double checking them and entering them should only take another couple hours :(

    Found out today, during this semester of working as a graduate assistant, I will get my first professional writing credit. I'll be helping do a new edition of a Criminal Justice research methods college text book!

    This made me laugh harder than it probably should have.

    I finally have a cover that works for my sequel, and that makes me fairly happy. :supersmile:

    Got a new job to get me through college independently of my parents. Unfortunately, not independently of loans, but that probably belongs in the other thread.

    I can't scroll fast enough past all the stuff on Facebook and in emails that's supposed to tug at my heartstrings, but I have to admit I'm a sucker for the videos where military Mom or Dad come home early from Iraq or wherever and surprise the kids.

    God bless you, Student Loans, for helping me get through my college years. I don't think I'll ever be able to repay you.

    I finally, finally broke my teeth and wrote the beginning of my story. Two hundred words, and I'm not sure if it's any good or not. But hopefully continuing will be easier than starting.

    lol, that's what I'm afraid of. But hey, what's indentured servitude in the path towards enlightenment? Some may argue it's a requirement.

    Re: student loans, I'm very nearly done with mine. Some $600 left. Only took me, oh, 7 years. Not even slightly worth it, in my case.

    One last, hung over, day before life starts up again!

    I have some companies to visit tomorrow for some desperate "please hire me, I've got kittens to feed". <--- this part belongs in another part of this forum.

    Anyway.
    Today - an entire day of playing Fallout and writing. Being hung over doesn't make me happy per se, but a sightly numb head really fits the agenda of today.

    I have written 2,000 words for a novel that I really wasn't inspired to write, however after moving the start of the novel forward over 30,000 words, I actually like the start and what I've written, and I'm excited to see where it goes.

    I found my fountain pen! Also, as I was unpacking, I found a bunch of my leather bound notebooks. :) I love having them though I don't want to use them (unless I have an extra of the same one). They're just so nice to have.
