I treat way too much of what I do like a production, which leads to expecting outcomes, which leads to no good. It also leads to a lot of censoring and editing. Personally and creatively.

Regarding the latter, I think I just realized that sometimes a blog is just a blog, and you don't always have to write a dissertation. I feel like writing a lot more now.

Oh no a real post everyone look busy.

Odds and ends.

LoudTwitter is off, again. Blogging at Destructoid has me realizing I should probably get back to blogging at my OG hometownslices.

The internet is crap and I am receeding. I don't want to delete this thing because I've had it forever and got my invite from a lifetime/beta member BACK IN THE DAAAAAAAAY, but I let my paid status slip because I just don't care that much. Lost most of my good icons in the process but whatever, it's time for an overhaul. I will probably change the layout to quote some new songs and look different if I get bored enough sometime soon. Besides that, I deleted my OKcupid account, because I just cannot muster enough desperation to care about it, and my Quiver rejection/acceptance count was something like 431/6. No lie. Uses science to match you, my ass. Might delete my MySpace, already pay little to no attention to Facebook, and all in all, I'm pretty much minimizing my internet presence. Why? Why not, I say. Of course, I've also got a new blog idea I'm starting soon, most likely tomorrow, but it is a frivolous, pseudocreative project that may not last long if it does not develop a cult following.

Work work work. It's all I do. Still at the same two jobs. Assistant department manager at job alpha posted for his own store position, so once again I have hopes of getting a backup slot, if only so I work mornings all the time and make more money doing it. Job beta, I'm lucky if I get a day a week and it's starting to piss me off, especially when I'm usually available five or six days out of seven. Hell, they just fired a guy, and he goes and hires his other brother in law for a day a week, a day a week I'd gladly take myself. ARGH. Whatever, the quizzo semi-reboot's due after the holiday, and there've been murmurs of finally hooking up the Wii they've had sitting for over a year now, so I'm aiming to get an emcee slot of sorts with that.

VIDEO GAMES. Decided to start playing games because they're supposedly good rather than to just up my gamerscore on the threesnitsky. No More Heroes was tits, kind of hope we get the HD version(s) over here and looking forward to the sequel. Been up to my balls in zombies as of this weekend, since I scored Left 4 Dead 2 for $40 and grabbed the Ned's Island expansion for Borderlands. Let my final solution for the zombie problem proceed. Probably doing a blog for dtoid re: minimally multiplayer online games soon, among other things. Might start reviewing in earnest, albeit independently.

Conning tower. I want to go to cons this year, but I'm really fenced on most of my options. Katsucon, I want to hit up because I figure people I haven't seen in a while or would like to re/meet are going to be there, but last year's mobs drove me crazy, and the OB meetup, as much as I love them, was on the verge of increasing my killing power. If I do go, I need to start room-begging and figuring out if I have the funds to do so soon. PAX East was looking promising, as I'd like to meet some Destructoid folk and the soon-to-be PAX twins are kind of their "home" cons, nevermind that I haven't been to Boston in a dog's age. Bootycon is a given, and is probably going to be my biggest money worry again this year. Dragon*Con, I say I'm aiming for every year, and every year I turn out to be too poor. We'll see if I actually do land backup and work from there. In all cases, I want to get in some more COSUPRAAAAAAAAAY before I call it on account of being too old for this crap, but money and time to make things are again an issue. Got at least one solid skit idea I'd like to do before I conventionally die, too, but I'd need to know people to con into doing it and I've kind of been nerd superhermit for a while now.

Other crap. My brother's wedding in April seems to have been the best motivator for working out ever, as I set myself a slimming schedule that should make me svelte by the time tux fitting comes in February (which would also be great for some of my costume ideas), and I'm already a pound ahead of schedule this week. Mostly the recumbent bike, which I do during 1 vs 100 because I'm a trivia slut and doing both at once keeps me from getting tired of either. Minimum 10 miles in an hour right now, usually around 12-13 depending on the course, once a day. Been feeling better, probably because of that, just need to start pushing for more building work on top of it. Cracked down on a lot of my terrible finance habits and started paying my bills exactly on time, all of them, and it's made life less stressful. People say I'm more pleasant to be around in general lately, and I think it's just a combination of a lot of the mentioned factors, maybe something else. Something in the water. Or my friends are slipping me antidepressants at Risk night. Feeling a lot more creative; want to get a scanner and start drawing again so I can actually use my DeviantArt account, and I've got ideas for a couple little video vignettes that I'd like to bang out once weather's more popular and I can find equipment and a small crew. Might try learning to program games in some fashion soon, too, since I've got at least one idea that could either gain some appreciation or get me sued. We'll see.

That was rambly, but I'm just pretty beat. Double-dip jobwise. I recommend the Bell's Christmas Ale; there's a great sweetness to it that's not too subtle, but not overpowering, and tastes familiar but was something I couldn't place at the time. I have Monday off so hopefully I'll start getting creative as of tomorrow night.

I need more Dillinger Four in my life.

It's not like I post for real anyway.

  • 04:56 Getting screwed out of my OT this week, but not exactly complaining about getting sent home early yesterday, today, and tomorrow instead. #
  • 06:19 Between staying in the black without any paycheck timing tricks this month and keeping to my biking routine, I feel pretty rad lately. #
  • 11:19 L4D2 for $40 at Target? Today was a good day to shop. Gettin' my Depeche Mode avatar shirt when I get home. #
  • 14:52 Shirt acquired, after who knows how much screaming at the terrible AI in this game. Purchased pants and shoes to match. #

  • 06:52 I give this kid an E for output, but someone should explain to him that things called greens shouldn't be for sale if they are yellow. Mess! #
  • 09:01 Tempted to sleep when I get home just so I can wake up in the dead of night to a bank account that has money in it. #
  • 22:07 @kevman: Oh man I want to play that sooooo bad. #
  • 23:46 Someone out there has to have this in MP3 form. Hell me, interbutts. bit.ly/7EY6 #
  • 00:09 Many thanks to zim for that song. The kitchen will love it. #
  • 00:20 As if doing terribly on the vampire round tonight wasn't enough, the follow-up general has been all sports. #

  • 11:11 Not that impressed by Tim Tams. Delighted, however, by the Tim Tam Slam. #
  • 13:14 @OshiHidra: Milk is good, and tea is another popular one. Tried both. Milk infuses the entire cookie but doesn't add that much to drinking. #
  • 13:16 @OshiHidra: Tea is more me a race to see how much you can drink before the thing disintegrates in your hands/cup, and carries more flavor. #
  • 13:25 Heard assistant store manager talking to assistant produce manager about the latter possibly getting his own store. Let's hope it happens. #
  • 13:52 Torn between staying out this extra shift I'm covering for the money or peacing early since we're already out of projects. #
  • 16:08 @calliecat: Congrats on achieving double coast Judas status! Good luck upon your return to the land of pot smoking fornicators! #
  • 16:11 Should I start a daily blog comprised solely of photos of me wearing fake moustaches from the vending machine? If yes, what do I call it? #
  • 16:13 Eventually, things would move to other stache sources and them being placed on other people and things, mind you. #
  • 17:00 Got a name. This is happening. #
  • 17:45 NEVER WORKING 9 TO 530 AGAIN this traffic sucks all the boners. #
  • 18:35 And by 530, I mean 5, because mofo it took me an hour to get home. #
  • 18:53 And I meant to post that half an hour ago but sometimes this Opera widget is goofy. #
  • 19:47 Why did I wait this long to play No More Heroes? First playthrough done, love the Real Ending. #
  • 19:51 @marisolita @Zhuang_Zi: I'm an unwashed heathen and even I find the secularization of rosaries pretty uncalled-for. #
  • 22:52 @johnnylandmine: Secret 'Stache would've been too easy, and has probably been used for way too many things. Trust me, mine is awesome. #
  • 22:55 Did a quick google search, and the only hit that was potentially conflicting was a blog called fakemoustache that had nothing of the sort. #
  • 23:52 @mark_argent: Sooooo good. #
  • 00:10 @mark_argent: Also note that the next volume is up for preorder on Amazon. #

  • 07:55 Evony is based in Delaware? That explains so much. #
  • 10:28 All that time spent hunting for the last Lovikov ball and here it was right by the damn hotel all along. #
  • 12:35 Confused my landlord by paying the rent on time. #
  • 20:10 @Branduno: Thank you for your recent reminders of Alistair Cookie; he just came up in 1 vs 100 #
  • 22:08 @leechan: Taco Ninja died? #

  • 14:07 How am I friends with someone who doesn't know enough about date rape to laugh at "brohypnol?" #
  • 14:24 I have a terrible idea for next Halloween that is almost as bad as my team up idea but will work solo. Def taking notes so I remember. #
  • 15:19 Any of you who acknowledge this "cyber Monday" crap or dare to call it that are getting some new holes come Tuesday. #
  • 16:07 @michelleness: Probably good; it's like when they tried to change Black Friday to Green Friday b/c they thought African-Americans cared. #
  • 20:33 "Elton John just sang a song. Jack Harkness shot a fucking Dalek in the face." #
  • 21:00 Finally racking up all the Who I've missed. I haven't watched anything since Journey's End and Torchwood S2. #
  • 21:37 Nerdpiphany: Realizing you're playing a trivia game, doing a crossword, and listening to a podcast discussing Doctor Who all at once. #

  • 05:30 Now they're telling me the money did drop to my account and was used in my eBay fees payment. Man I just don't care anymore. #
  • 07:08 Yo Philly doods: we should do am ugly holiday sweater/obnoxious Xmas movie party. I can host since Netflix will probably have a bunch. #
  • 07:38 Bonus points for winter themed jackets, stupid festive hats, and/or alt winter costumes from your favorite anime. The last may get you hit. #
  • 09:31 @lizdarcy: I'll likely attempt legit nog and kill everyone with salmonella. Fruitcake is a possibility. Gratz, btw. I suck at tweeting. #
  • 09:32 Man, the guy they get to do Santa's voice on the ads here tries less and less each year. #
  • 23:17 Got parked in for a bit after work by a guy with a raised truck with bumper nuts. Sometimes, I regret the bar's location. #
  • 23:25 Got the new Game Informer today. As much as I am meh to them, they did a 200 best games for their 200th ish and Legend Of Zelda was tops! #
  • 00:03 Thank you, There Will Be Brawl, for keeping me up even later than I really should be. Now it's bedtime for real. #
