Title: The Cafe of Broken Dreams
Post by: Solaufein on January 20, 2007, 05:44:47 AM
Talk just about anything here, in one concentrated thread. Like how your day is going, what the weather is like, just general talk like you were at a coffee house.


A thought crossed my mind, one of many I will say, that I always had a fascination with drow elves, but never had the impulse to create a "Drizzt" mod. Thankfully not. I have seen so many ideas about a Drizzt mod over the years.

The weather is quite cold today, in the high teens, low twenties.

Weather here finally turned cold. We've been having an unhealthily mild winter. Had the first snowfall of the year, and it was nothing more than a dusting. What a bummer. Still, it's better than the years where you have to get up an hour early every single morning to shovel your car out again, and you know that some creep is going to take your parking spot the moment you get your car free.

Anyway, I'm miserable with an earache and a sore throat, so it's time to get another cup of mint tea with lemon and loads of honey.

Can I get anybody anything while I'm up?
Title: Re: The Coffee House, Random Talk
Post by: theacefes on January 20, 2007, 02:10:22 PM
A beer?

jk


I'd like some hot cocoa.  It's cold here...probably nowhere near as cold as it is where you are, but then again I am just a CA pansy. ;D

Edit: On another note, does everyone like my avatar or should i use a different portrait of Auren?

Whaaaat?  Out of beer?  Oh, these are dark days indeed.  Actually, I'm more of a wino myself, but I do enjoy a good cider or Guinness occasionally.  I had a brandy the other night but I decided I don't really care for it... might be good in coffee or cocoa though.

No clue.  Got it off a neverwinter vault site.  Just thought it looked nice and used it for the mod.

Hey, I don't really give a flying about the title, as far as I'm concerned. 8)
However, said title is a bit of an inside-joke in CoM, one that the newer members won't really know about, unless of course they do a bit of searching.

Not really something to joke around, IMO, but hey, just giving a thought. :)
BTW, sorry to disappoint ya ;), but I use this nickname as a tribute for one of my fav Cartoon shows (Cow & Chicken), plus I really find it funny, to use an antithesis/repetition as a nickname. :D
As for the Avatar, I needed something related to the subject of Death. As I always had a bit of a fascination with the idea/concept of the Grim Reaper, I chose to use one. 8)

@ DR: *DG passes a bottle* There you go. :) I'll be having something a bit lighter, now. A Safri-Cola (~70% of Safari (liquor) + Coca-Cola = Very sweet and light, perfect for socialising :D) should do the trick...
Title: Re: The Cafe of Broken Dreams
Post by: berelinde on January 24, 2007, 03:27:26 AM
@ Dead Ghost: sorry, that was a misguided attempt at humor. Sometimes it works, sometimes everybody just stares at me and blinks.

If somebody else felt the way I feel today, they'd want hot tea with honey, lemon and a shot of something potent in it, but I'm allergic to tea, and I have to go to work. So I'll settle for a cup of hot water with lemon and honey, and a few slices of ginger root.

It's a shame you can't find those good old games in the local stores any more. Ordering online can be cheaper like Amazon. You can find a good use game from a few cents to a couple of dollars.

Ah well... I guess that's not a bad delivery time, even for international (I live right by an Amazon distribution centre and it still takes 2 weeks sometimes - usually I get much better responses from their 'used' merchant affiliates).  Just watch out for that DVD compilation - I've read a lot of people having problems (http://forums.bioware.com/viewtopic.html?topic=543215&forum=11) with it. :-\

Snow is healthy. ^.^ It makes the cold less bitter and it reduces the possibility of disease.

Plus, I've recently discovered that you can roll it up in small fist-sized balls and throw it at people :D I think I'll call that activity "ball-shaped crystalized water throwing at each other".   :lilly

Excuse me! I noticed you quoting Lilly, but noticed that you did not inlcude a "@Lilly:" or "Lilly-" before your response. As this was done as a forum post, and not a PM, I interpreted that to mean that it was intended as a general comment and not directed to anyone specifically.

Edit: According to Lilly's profile, she is from the Middle Ground. While I am quite certain that exists in Serbia, it also exists in the US, so it is entirely possible there is some overlap. Haven't seen anything else that would indicate her precise geographic location, and I wouldn't want to pry.

Excuse me! I noticed you quoting Lilly, but noticed that you did not inlcude a "@Lilly:" or "Lilly-" before your response. As this was done as a forum post, and not a PM, I interpreted that to mean that it was intended as a general comment and not directed to anyone specifically.

 Ah but the fault was entrely yours - I'm afraid. You see Redrake never makes mistakes and is practically perfect in every way. It was right of him to point out your, indeed, all of ignorance, so as to inspire us toward the perfection he embodies.

Plus, I've recently discovered that you can roll it up in small fist-sized balls and throw it at people :D I think I'll call that activity "ball-shaped crystalized water throwing at each other".   :lilly
Is it a custom for boys to rub girls with snow on their faces there too? ;D


But this is common activity in many countries :lilly

Face wash as its called here. Grab someone by the neck and force them face first into the snow, rubbing it in.

Edit: According to Lilly's profile, she is from the Middle Ground. While I am quite certain that exists in Serbia, it also exists in the US, so it is entirely possible there is some overlap. Haven't seen anything else that would indicate her precise geographic location, and I wouldn't want to pry.
That's because you didn't checked other people profiles on the old Chosen of Mystra or TFN. ;D
And since I quote someone, it should be obvious I'm addressing to that one.

Winter, face in the snow reminds me of something in my senior year in high school. Me and my girlfriend at the time went out sledding. Sledding, what us northern Yanks call it, is taking a sled, go up a hill and slide down. Repeat until you are bored.

Well ours only lasted once. I was in front, she was sitting behind me, we slid down the hill, hit something which caused the sled to stop. The momentum had me going face first into the snow with my girlfriend falling on top of me, sliding the rest of the way down the hill like that. I got snow all under my clothes making me wet and cold. Ironic I have not done that since then.

Ha! We finally got our snow: late, but at least it was a weekend, and it wans't enough to break out the shovels over.

So, rolling out a beta this weekend, doing birthday stuff with BF (hibachi table--BF likes the show!), and maybe, just maybe, downloading IWD2 NPC... I so want to do that.

I'm so happy it's Saturday! For someone like me, who is used to waking up at 4:30 every day to go to work, weekends are no different, but BF doesn't wake up until around noon, so I have about 8 solid hours to do whatever I want. Togetherness is wonderful, but I like those quiet Saturday morning hours when I can get stuff done.

I used to take the bus to and from Belgrade, but since the price became perposterous, I switched to the train and I can tell you, it's craaaaaazy fun! ;D

You can meet such interesting people! You just sit in the same coupe and the conversation flows, while in the bus everyone just minds their own buisiness and if you DO try to talk to someone you end up being "the maniac who comes up to people in buses and TALKS to them"!  :evil

Tea flavored with cinnamon and other sweet spices. Sometimes, it's served with milk and sugar, but that's a personal preference thing.

Anyone who tells you quitting smoking is good for your health has never had to endure the months and months and months of constant illness following the quit date.

Still, Michigan is usually about a day or two ahead of New Jersey weather-wise. Maybe I should check the forecast.

That's some pretty serious stuff! I certainly hope you're learning about safety... You really shouldn't be smelling hydrogen sulfide, *or* the byproducts of burning magnesium. You should be doing this under a fume hood, at the very least.

 I really never liked science but of the three areas we got to study (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) I have to say I liked chemistry the most, but that was mainly due to the fact I got to occasionally play with acid.

I have to agree with you. History (particularly ancient History) is so intriguing.

School sucked. Not that I am against learning or anything but how schools present it, its dull and boring. Most of my knowledge is from reading books and internet sites about topics that interest me.

Yeah. I do find homeschooling is a much better atmosphere for learning. Especially since Homeschoolers have to learn things themselves and so learn how to think and learn for themselves.

I bet you'd never have guessed but I'm a Homeschooler

And unfortunately I can't agree with Public School being boring. Afterall I was never in more than Elementary School, and no one can really hate Elementary School.

I am also more of an art/history type person, though I do use a fair amount of math in my job.  I have actually even used algebra in the course of my work (somewhere my algebra teacher is smiling).

-----

I taught high school World History for a year (shudders) and my spouse continues to teach high school US History (yes, we are a couple of History geeks).  I might have stayed in teaching if class sizes would have been capped at 20 students, but most of my classes were of the 30+ variety.  With the classes of 20 or fewer students, classroom management was a breeze; it was easy to have effective discussions, run fun simulations, and to keep the class focused and engaging. 

I know a few who went the Homeschooler route vs. traditional public school system, and the Homeschoolers seem to get a better education.  I believe that part of the success is because Homeschoolers bypass some of the key problems public school students face in the US School System. 

1.) They are not in huge classes of 30+ students competing for attention. 
2.) Their â??teachersâ? are not forced to water down the material to catch the lowest common denominator.
3.) From my (albeit limited) observation, Homeschoolers actually read the material.

It depends on teacher and on the students - the teacher can really try but when the students make a deal with themselves that they won't learn, all his work is in vain :-\ You know, the harder thing on learning at school are right your classmates - mine are mostly absolute cretins and if I could, I would kick them out of the school. Then the rest of us, who wants to learn, would have finally the desired order.

1.) They are not in huge classes of 30+ students competing for attention. 
Agreed. The largest class I've been in was just upwards of 15. And that was with a co-op of Homeschoolers for classes not all mothers are experts in (public speaking, art, chemistry, etc)

2.) Their â??teachersâ? are not forced to water down the material to catch the lowest common denominator.
Correct. Though, then again the teaching is somewhat limited depending on how you go about it.

Um course we do! This brings into light one of the downsides though. If your kid ain't motivated enough to do their school without supervision, then you start to have problems.

Post by: Crazee on March 06, 2007, 02:08:40 PM
It's kind of related to school subjects... :-\ Some little things I need to get off my chest about school.

1) I hate students who don't listen but when work is set say "I don't get it!"
2) I hate new/student teachers who think we're a) impressed by their use of slideshows (or lack of ability to write neatly) and b) who think they're "one of us" because they've only just gotten out of university. Dear me! You're a *teacher*! We don't like you, young or not.
3) Teachers who say: "Guys! I'd expect this of my set 4s but not my set 1s! You should be eager to learn!" Just because we are good at a subject doesn't mean we like it.
4) Teachers who assume all students are naturally clever. It isn't true. I worked my way into the higher classes.
5) Teachers who tell too many jokes
6) Teachers who make subject-related jokes
7) Students who laugh at the subject-related jokes

This list kept on adding to itself. I know they're all really pointless, and that adults have much bigger problems, but to me, it's little things like these that make me a very angry person.

And Neferit, seeing you call your classmates "cretins" made me smile! Thanks! ;D

AND (to do with subjects): I hate all my subjects, though it is much better now I've chosen what to do for my GCSEs. I hated doing stuff like art. Nothing's worse than being set an art project which is longer than your important english project when you have about as much skill with a pencil as a blind-folded, armless man with no feet or anything except a mouth to hold a pencil in.

AND AND I always wanted to get home-schooled, though admittedly that was because I thought I wouldn't have to work

AND AND AND (Gods, this is getting tireing) To Khiras I think, are you kidding me!? Algebra is the only thing I can do! Shape and space. Now there's a part of maths I can't stand.

AND AND AND AND (Last one!) I don't think I know anyone in my school that would willingly admit to liking maths or the sciences. Just thought I'd put that out, seeing as how we all are saying it. Of course you don't! No one does! Right? *mouths "I'll get you" to any potential science and/or maths likers whilst sharpening her dagger* Riiiiiight!? Of course. You're all entitled to your own opinions. *throws her dagger up and catches it deftly* Yup. Own opinions...

7) Students who laugh at the subject-related jokes

Oh, I don't know. Some chemistry jokes are pretty funny if you're sufficiently twisted. You have to understand that chemists are notoriously literal thinkers, for the most part, so for them to actually find something funny, it has to be absolutely hysterical.

'Course most of the really good stuff isn't the kind of thing you'd share with a room full of students. Come to think of it, the kind of jokes that would be safe for any teacher to tell students would tend to be hopelessly lame.

Never mind. Carry on.

I disliked school I suppose. My C's and D's grades reflect that. But college must have been good for me since I usually received B's and A's for a grade.

Which reminds me, if I had writing assignments due, I would not get started on them until the day they were due, this includes multiple page essays. The funny thing is I tended to get A's on those assignments. Must be I am at my best under "stress".

 The character is Sikozu Svala Shanti Sugaysi Shanu (usually just called Sikozu)
 The actress is Raelee Hill, a popular actress in her native Australia, I first saw her in Australian soap opera Neighbours.

 She joined the crew of Moya in Season 4 of Farscape, and also featured in Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars miniseries.
Title: Re: The Cafe of Broken Dreams
Post by: Kaleidoscope on March 09, 2007, 07:29:44 AM
I used to watch Farscape on BBC2, bloody good show it was too.
You'd think I'd remember her, she's awfully pretty.

I wasn't aware there was a miniseries though, last episode I ever saw ended with the hero (John?) and the woman, I forget her name, the tough one, in a poxy little boat being strafed and ASPLODED by an alien fighter craft.

Time to scour the torrent engines for this miniseries I guess.
Title: Re: The Cafe of Broken Dreams

 Anyhoo the mini-series picks up where the last episode left off, and ties up most of the loose ends, but leaves things open enough for future projects.

 Well it ran for four seasons, so it fared better than shows like Firefly.  Apparently it was originally conceived to run for five series, well the story-arcs could be resolved at the end of five seasons, but obviously producers hoped that it would run for longer.

 Whilst the internet campaign was not succsessfil in keeping the show in syndication, mounting production costs were blamed, it proved enough for the prodcuction of the mini-series, so it was not completely in vain.    :)

Just like La Femme Nikita. It ran for four seasons, season four was going to be the last, they set up the last few episodes as the end of the series, then the fans struck back. Petitions and all of that sort of good stuff happened so the producers and execs decided to do a small season five, which was eight episodes. Best thing that they did with the series, I did not like how season four ended.
Title: Re: The Cafe of Broken Dreams
Post by: Raven_Song on March 10, 2007, 05:01:40 AM

 In the UK Le Femme Nikita suffered from being shown on the smallest of our terrestrial channels, and terrible scheduling, most episodes didn't start until well after 11.30 pm. Shame another good show lost.

Still I suppose we should be thankful that these shows ended whilst at the height of their popularity, and did not end up as some ongoing yet stale franchise.  :)

That's actually about as far from funny as theoretically possible.

Undie's parrot-killer was funny, because it invoked the vision of my 3 kg cat going after a 5 kg parrot.

I'd hate to think of chaining any animal up day in and day out, with no respite and little human contact. The idea of a dog that would kill a pig, a pet dog, or maybe a kid, not funny at all.

Properly trained, dogs can be the most loving of all pets. I had to put my beloved yellow lab down in January because of extreme old age, but she was the best pet a person could want, obedient, loyal, and obsessively affectionate. But even she, kind and gentle as she was, could have been a killer if she had been mistreated.

I said a pig, I didn't specified its age or size. In that case the pig was several months old, therefore it should have been little over the size of a cat.

Top Ten Gnomish sayings

* I wouldn't touch that if I were you.
* If it doesnâ??t work on the first try, it certainly will on the 99th.
* The only thing better than working, is making plans to work.
* If it works well with two wheels, just think how well it will work with eighty-four.
* More steam! It worked for uncle Gnuckle, before he blew up, so it should work now!
* When the going gets tough, the tough get ten more feet of steam pipe.
* What do you mean it isnâ??t working? It worked four decades ago!
* If a machine has only one lever, and if that lever breaks down, the machine is out of use. If a machine has twenty-one levers, and if one lever breaks down, the machine still has twenty levers to be used.
* If itâ??s not broken, it must have not enough features.
* Well, all it needs is a bigger hammer.

You could try wetting your hands with water, rubbing them with either cornstarch or cut potatoes, and then washing them with liquid hand soap and water.

Or you could try rubbing citrus fruit rind on them. It will at least cut the iodine smell.

Too bad you can't smell what I'm smelling at work today. I'm working with a fragrance called "apple wood," and it's quite lovely.

They can get cranky as they age, though, like raccoons.

One mine friend has a dog, I thinks it's dachshund. One day they have been walking along local stream and that stupid dog has found a dead frog - and had nothing better to do than rolll around that frog. The smell was awful. My friend very quickly went back to home and the dog ended very quickly in bath. The had bathed her (=the dog) with at least four bottles of shampoo and used on her three sprays. And she was still smelling by that dead frog  :D

Ha! There are 4 cats in the house as a result of combining two households with 2 cats each. Life is chaos, and the kitten thinks he's Napoleon.

Sadly, the dogs are all gone now, but they knew a thing or two about free will. The one of them knew she wasn't supposed to get up on the table, but she did anyway, if I wasn't looking. And then she'd try to act innocent, which is really hard to do if you're a 60 pound yellow lab sitting in the middle of the dining room table. (sniff) I miss those dogs.

 You can send her to me if you don't want her.   :)


Sure, why not but what would I tell my daughter when she'll grow up ???

 I doubt that she will remember her.  I don't really remember anything before I was four years old. 

 Apparently I used to have an Old English Sheepdog who doted on me - similar Nana in Peter Pan -  and yet I have no real recollection of him.  Actually come to think of it that's really quite sad, you should keep the kitty after all.  :(

The mailman kidnapped the cat? :D

The cat dug a hole, right through the carpet too and that was a very nice one (the carpet, I mean ;D), made a tunnel straight at the window, sawed off the bars (don't let the kid ask about the bars ;D), used a high-beam laser to cut the glass (like in those high-gadget spy movies ;D), and jumped through the hole with a parachute (made from napkins, though this significant detail might be best to leave out ;D) on his/her back. (feel free to add the detail that the cat mewoed the human equivalent of "FREEDOM"! ;D)

My cats are queens. They lay around and expect to be fed.
And I expect they are rarely disappointed, come the appointed hour for their dinner.

All 4 of my cats are very different.

The elderly male just wants to lie in the sun, eat when he feels like it, and be left alone. The kitten, Puck, insists on trying to play with him, which annoys grampa kitty, so he plays basketball with Puck's head.

The middle-aged female is afraid of the other cats, but tolerates Puck, for some reason. She hides under the furniture and only comes out when I'm alone in the room. Puck insists on trying to play with her, which annoys her, so she plays basketball with Puck's head.

The young female is quite possibly the prettiest cat ever, with very soft fur and enormous green eyes. She knows this. Puck insists on trying to play with her, which annoys her, so she plays basketball with Puck's head.

Puck is 9 months old, and his feet have never touched the floor. He springs from one piece of furniture to another, bouncing off plants, people, and the other cats. When the last dog was alive, he used to like to stand on her back like a trick rider. The other cats do not believe he means them well. They are probably right.

Hehehe, I don't know what I'd do without my cats (note, when I say MY cats, I'm refering to the three of SEVEN cats that currently call my house home ;) We're a family of cat lovers ;) ).

And, yeah, they're all very, VERY different ^.^'

I mean, Meda (the oldest, biggest guy ;) ) could just as well have been a dog. :D He's so sweet and calm and gentle, I mean, once, Emma (my Siamese) had kittens (with our neighbour's Siamese, not Meda ;) ) and Meda would gather them all up on the bed and lick them and play with them :D A friend of mine who'd seen him do it once said:"Aw, look at the kittens and their mum."  ;D

Emma, the Siamese, ;) she's a princess. All dignified and proud, even when she was a kitten. She's got these stunning different colour eyes (one blue and the other light green, I guess that means she's probably not pure bred ;) ) and when she looks at me, I always have this impression that she can somehow see twice as much as the rest of us. ;)

And, last but not least, there's Mara, my favourite grouch :D She hates the other cats, she hates dogs, she hates people, she hates EVERYONE and everyone is afraid of her since she spends half of her time hissing and snarling at them. But she loves me. :D She turns into a different cat when I pick her up, she wont even let her claws out when she's...er...mushing me :D

So, yeah, I'd probably be lonely without them, they're more people than actual people sometimes ^.^

One of my cats doesn't like people or other animals except my other cat. We had a big tom cat in the window sill one night and she hissed at him and he took off running. He was three times her size. She also keeps the other cat in line aka being a kiss ass to me. If the other cat is acting up and I raise my voice, my black cat will go over there and attack the other cat.

Ahh, I love my kitties. There are three of them.
Iris, the young female, is very small, but also pretty fast, evil and enjoys attention. If you do not want play with her, she will hurt you very badly with her claws.
Even when she plays, she gives you nasty cuts with claws and teeth. She looks like a white tiger :)

My dad's cat, on the other hand, is a big, young and powerful black male. He is very careful not to bite too strong; everybody can play with him, but only human females are allowed to pet him, he he :D
He likes to sleep in most unusual places like dinner plates, in my bag and near the computer. He has many names, my bro calls him Marko and the rest of us call him Deliquent or Vandal :)

Juca, the Siamese, is my precioussss. She only allowes me to take care of her. She waits on the window for me to return from school every day. What I find interesting is that she really hates milk. Siamese cats are incredibly stubborn.

Well, on Monday it's boys' turn and in Tuesday should by girls' turn but mostly is it not sustained  :) But this depends on where exactly you are, too. In some parts of country it's Boys' turn in the morning and in the afternoon girls can return the favor.
Athough I really disliked the part with "pomlázka", the rest is quite good - you always get chocolates, coloured eggs and it's quite funny - especially when noone visited you :D

Everybody has to be named something, and we don't always get to choose what that will be.

One of the biggest fights my ex and I had was over my reluctance to take his name. At work, I must sign everything using my first initial and family name. Using my first initial and *his* family name spelled something really, truly horrible. In the end, I was unsuccessful, which is unfortunate, because I'm still forced to sign my name that way, unless I feel like shelling out the large amounts of money to change it legally.

So yeah, I understand all about name irony.

I hate my own name.  It's a male Irish name (although most who hear it think it sounds feminine, luckily), and my mother was determined to give me a male nickname (after her brother) hell or high water.  (Okay, that sounds mean.  My mother was just very grateful to him for helping her through a difficult pregnancy and all that.  But I'm being bitter here.)  So many times, people hear either my name or my nickname, and think I'm going to be a guy before meeting me or do double or triple checks.  Argh!


As for Lucita... I liked her back in Dark Ages (which is when I really liked the Lasombra, too).  But in modern times, I thought she turned too Mary Sue/let's be a fanboy icon for my liking.  That being said, I can't think of any White Wolf female signature characters that I really liked before Exalted.  Fatima wasn't bad, and I was okay with that werewolf Black Fury... Mari, I think?  I dunno.  All of them were better then mage's Penny Dreadful, though, so I'm happy.

Before the United States had a federal government, it was all a confederacy. Individual states each had their own constitutions. In New Jersey, where I live, unmarried or widowed women, together with every other landowner, were granted the right to vote in 1776. This was taken away in 1807.

It took the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution, ratified in 1920, for women to be given suffrage.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women's_suffrage (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women's_suffrage)

Unlike nations with state-mandated voting, the United States also grants the right to abstain from voting. I would not condemn anyone for choosing this option, as this right, too was hard-won.

Nevertheless, countless women were beaten or imprisoned to give me a voice in how I will be governed. Even if the electoral process is not perfect, it is better than no voice at all. I will continue to vote.

My name is Michaeleen- feminine to most American ears, but the 'een' suffix basically is used to mean 'little' or 'junior', making me Little Michael.  My nickname is Mikey.  Still.  I wouldn't think it's an easy name to make fun of, but I always got called Mikey Mouce as a kid, or they would play 'Mikey in the middle' with a ball instead of Monkey in the middle (I was very short) and "Well, you like life cereal, right?" (no, actually, I don't).  Little kids are mean, and therefore, I will take revenge by ranting about them on an internet forum!

Heh. On our school forum, some people started this thread in which we post ourselves as SP characters. My bf made himself with this cut across the head, so I figured it would look nice to combine these pics, too.  :lilly

Btw, I was named after my grandpa (only with the female version of the name, which is only an A more). It does qualify as a female name, but in my generation every third damned girl has that same name! (or so it would seem). So in the elementary school, no one's ever called me by my name, because there were three of us in the class! Imagine that hell when you have to answer to the (last) name Bogdanovic(ka) about ten times every day  :( . Now at least I'm the only one in my class.
Why they didn't name my older brother after grandpa, but with a brand new name in the family instead, I'll never know  >:(

Romanian is a latin based language and we don't pronounce it like you said, but like in germanic languages. I guess is pretty hard to distinguish between slavs and roman slaves. ;D

How many languages do you know? Where did you learn them? Was it mandatory to learn them?

In our schools it's option to learn another langauge and usually its French or Spanish.
Title: Re: The Cafe of Broken Dreams
Post by: Redrake on April 24, 2007, 10:57:53 PM
Here it actually depends on schools. In some schools is mandatory french and english. In others, spanish, german, portuguese. Always 2 in schools, but they vary. For me it was french and english, but while I can understand french, speaking or writing in it is a real problem. I also know some macedonian (another latin-based language, close to romanian), but that's mostly because of my heritage. Italian is known to me, but frankly if I speak to an italian, I can speak in romanian and he can speak in italian and we can understand each other just fine.
Title: Re: The Cafe of Broken Dreams

Hm, in my school we have english/german or english/french. We have hobby group of italian, next year we can have latin and russian. On other schools where some of my friends study it's mostly english, spanish, german and in one even russian. As already Redrake said - it depends on the type of school.

I, personally, am able to speak Czech (oh, what a surprise! :D), Slovak (well, all that years of Czechoslovakia must meant something ::)), English and German, while I quite understand Polish and Russian, too.

We learn english and german at school. Some people have russian or french instead of german. Since I'm in a mathematics-and-stuff oriented class (I don't know if there's a nicer name for it in English  :P , but there are two directions in classical secondary education here) I learned Latin only in the first year (that is, the year before now), I remember the teacher acknowledgeing me and a friend of mine at the end of the school year, but now, of course, I can barely remember several words, not to mention using the right tense in a sentence  :o! Can't say I can *speak* german either (without a dictionary)...

I think I can also understand spanish and read it (hate it when I don't find an anime episode with english translation, but I managed to get most of it in spanish anyway...).

And, of course, Serbian. And Montenegrian! (hells, does their language even have a name in english?) And a few more slovenian ( ???) languages, since they're more or less similar. Yay! We have some 10 little countries with all different-called languages and nationalities and all their people hate each other! :lilly  :( Ok, it's probably less than ten, but what do you know, if Serbia was to be ripped into three new states...
I don't hate anyone. I guess it's because I haven't witnessed any wars and terrors.

P.S. I'm disgusted at the fact that in Spanish J is read like H is here  >:(  Would I be Hovana!?

I know English (yar!).  I took classes of Latin and Spanish and remember bits and pieces- more with Latin then Spanish, unfortunatly, as Spanish would be more useful.  I can understand a bit of Gaelic and Polish.  I can speak Japanese with some fluency, and I understand it pretty well (I can watch anime without the subs and not break my brain- usually), but I can't read it for the life of me.  I basically gave up on that.  Unfortunatly, my Japanese knowledge has been dying as I haven't been using it.

If you're going to do it, do it now.

My grandmother was one hell of a lady. She was born in 1906, and everyone agreed that you would never meet a more decent, charitable soul. But she was definitely a character. She had the most outrageous sense of humor, and would wear the most ridiculous outfits, even though she knew they were loud. There was nothing she wouldn't try, even if it took her a while to get around to it. She learned to drive at 90, even though it took her 8 or 9 tries to pass the road test. Thank the gods she was satisfied with having her license, and never actually wanted to drive anywhere!

Well, when I was 16, she decided she wanted to learn to ride a bicycle. She was 77, although she seemed older to my bratty 16 year old self. The family had rented a beach house with a big, paved parking area. I thought that would be a good place for her to try it. She was going to get on the bike and pedal, and she wanted me to run alongside and keep her steady. It ended predictably. She landed in the garden, on top of a lot of nice, cushy plants, but I got tangled up in the bike and dragged along the concrete for a bit.

That was the end of that experiment, but that was what convinced her she needed to learn to drive.

Shadow.

If you are using that white background, using one of the darker board backgrounds will make it show better.

Hm.  I was ready to blame firefox, but the board skin could be it.

Maybe I'll play with the move text instead.

My favorite is strikethrough, though.  But don't tell anyone!

I'm happy today.  I found a new thing in a mod I played that I hadn't seen before and it made me aweee.  Perhaps I should go spoil it in the BG forum, but I want other people to play through and see it for themselves, too.  Hm!

I can't see the shadow text at all with this skin, yup.  Maybe I'll change it.

Good thing you don't want to spoil it to others. Unlike my brother who:
- told me who you are in KotOR,
- told me who Imoen is in BG2,
- told me about Yoshimo (and Ignus, though it wouldn't have applied to my evil character anyway)
- ...what would happen in Torment, Matrix movie, Star Wars, animes, EVERYTHING!
And before I played those games/watched the movies. When he starts telling me such things now, I cover my ears - there's no other defence against it!

It was the Xan BGII mod, latest version, the ToB part.  Obviously, what makes me aweee will be different then from what makes you aweee, but it hit all the right 'aweee' buttons for me.

(Wow, that was a silly sentence!)

I have a spoiler addiction- I'm one of those horrible horrible HOOOORRRRIBLE people who reads the last page of a book before I start it, who asks my friends who dies in movies before watching them, who checks wikipedia for the plot before playing games, and so on.  It's dumb, because I enjoy things more when I don't do that (see: PS:T and KOTOR, where I got both surprises, compared to Jade Empire where I spoiled myself completely)... but, but, but, spoilers!  They're addicting!  They call me!

I forgot to add that about Jade Empire. [spoiler]Bro told me he'd heard that some guy realised who the bad guy was at the beginning of the game and stated it had to be Lee  :evil . And then he got mad at me for telling him how fast I smacked down Lee in the end, since I completed it before him, like I spoiled him something he already spoiled me!  >:([/spoiler]

Ah, Bardess, play Xan TOB sometime when you have the time.  I think it's even better then SOA- all three paths!  But then again, I adore him, so maybe I'm biased.

Not sure what the tempature is here (I'm not going outside till later this afternoon ^_^), but I know it's windy.  The windsock keeps scratching against the side of the house- I keep glancing over, thinking something's there.  It's starting to get silly.

Heh :) You know, one of the Sigilans (grr, is that the corect word for someone who's living in Sigil?  ???), I think that it was Tokkar, asked me when he first saw me with green hair - "Hey, Nef, there's something strange about you. Don't you have new bracelet? ;D" That was really priceless :)

My red hair is natural! It says so on the box! ::)

In all seriousness, I felt deprived by being born with brown hair. I've got the skintone for red hair, in any case, and provided I pick the right shade, people generally think it's natural. I don't know much about biological parents, but my mother did leave a note with physical descriptions of her family members. She had red hair, as did her mother and all 4 of her siblings. My father must have had dark hair, tho, because my natural color is very dark indeed. He also must have been tall, because I'm 5'8" but she was under 5'.

I don't like brown either and dark brown is my natural colour. Even so, though it has volume and curls, it's not *strong*! Why's it dark, then?? It's so thin...
About height, I hate it! Since meters are the measure around here, I'm 1,76m tall. I'm a giant! I hate it! When in a bus, I can hit the roof handles with my head (the lowered ones, of course, not the roof!).

If it works out that way, that's great. Sometimes, it doesn't. It's always possible that my height has discouraged potential suitors, but maybe not. Not much I can do about either my height or their lack of interest.

BTW: Bardess, doing some quick metric conversion, I think you and I are the same height.

One of my friends is 6'1" tall. Her boyfriend is over a foot shorter. He says he likes the view.

I know, I know women should be shorter, but what do I do about it?  :'( :'( :'( I've always wanted to cut off my legs...  :'(  Still, this height is only 0,03m more than Beyonce's. She's a good-looking woman, isn't she? (arrgh, if only I was 3cm shorter... one cm... just...shorter...) I'm taller than my mom, who's taller than grandma.

I have slightly different problem - find pants not too long. I have a bit wider hips than the pants in the lenght I need and I always have to buy bigger size than I actually need. I remember one event which happened to my friend with same problem - the sales woman told her "But you will be able of easier delivery, you know." That's really important to know when you are 15 (that was age of my friend when this has happened)  :evil

And Bardess, don't be upset about your tallness - I'm about 1,7 metre tall (that's only about 6 centimetres less than you) and I'm quite content with it. Well, the problems with buying pants are different matter :D

And 1,7 is totally ok. Why am I not 6cm shorter??  :'(
That's it...if I cut my leggies for just 6cm...6 lillo centimeters... it'll be... excelllllent...


Women ::) :D

You don't see me complaining about being tall. No sense in it, as there's nothing I could do about it, anyway. I don't wear heels as a rule, but that's just because they aren't much a part of my lifestyle.

Red hair must be those Irish genes.  :) But thanks to dad and his blond hair, I'm not as red as my mother.


I'm short and that's fine. I prefer men who are taller than myself, big and strong.

You know, I have only two pairs of shoes on high heels - I wear them only when I really had to (for example to dancing courses or when I perform with orchestra in theatre etc.) I'm unable to stand them for longer period than a few hours and then my legs are killing me :D

Ech... little girls are good. My gf (mhah, language of shortcuts - learn Yarp, learn!) was 162 cm. I'm 193 :) Yup, I'm playing basketball when I'm healthy. But I think tall woman with long hairs (I know, it's just a simple atawism - I don't know, this word exists in english?) can be also very fine. Hm... you're 176. That's much.

The older you get, the less people will care. Anyway, 1.76 meters isn't *that* tall. Besides, why are you worried about somebody else's standard of beauty, anyway? When someone worth your time comes along, he'll be more interested in your personality. ;)

And BTW, Redrake, aren't you from Prague and don't you have nickname "Vallun" ? ;D You know, it's one of the members of Sigil forum - and one of the most obnoxious members ever! :D Half of the time when he's logged, he's arguing with someone (well, lets say that he's arguing with half of the members ::)) and when he's bored, just for change he's arguing with someone :D Would on Sigil be hug/spank system, he would be spanked to death in very short time :o

Redrake likes to point out things. (like Neferit's missing letter that time) But since I like guinea pigs and I felt sorry for him, I think I huged him a few times. I also remember showing him (the poor pig with 80+ spanks) to my bf and telling him I didn't know why this was, when he said "spank it! spank it!" and I did so ...  ^-^ :-[

The missing letter are sometimes quite scary - I remember one event when friend of mine was dictating me what I should write into one schedule, I think it was some register schedule. And she said "Jsem praÅ¡těná" and by mistake I wrote "Jsem prÅ¡těná". It seems quite normal, doesn't it? But its meaning is dramaticaly different; while "Jsem praÅ¡těná" means something like "I'm crazy", the "jsem prÅ¡těná" means... Uhm, I think I won't even try to translate it :-[ :D Lets say that it would be very very embarrassing to post it ;D Luckily we found it out right before I click on "POST" button  :)

I was unable to visit CoM whole day. I got totally mad. >:(

Namely, my brother has the uncontrollable power of limiting our computer network so that I recieve and lose the internet on strange occasions and certainly not because of anything *I'm* doing. Today I didn't have it at all. He claims he doesn't know why that is, but I think he's just too lazy to bother figuring it out (when it's not him who's damaged; I mean, of *course* the opposite never works). And the lad literally didn't *move* from his computer chair for the last 11 hours (or at least I didn't notice and I did check from time to time). Arrrrgh!!!!

You...  Have a very similar problem to one I have.

My router (under my father's control...  >:() randomly resets when I try to go to some sites.  It's mildly upsetting because I used to love to bait the Gaia "Life Issues" forums.  Ah well...  I guess it's good enough that it stopped me from doing that.  Of course, when it started interfering with some webcomics I got a LITTLE angry.

Webcomics are an addiction, through and through.

Most of my friends would have done it for pizza and beer, but I didn't want to wait for the weekend, since I'm having the gaming horde descend for a weekend session. There won't be any carpet in time for the gaming group, but bare floor is still better than the disgusting carpet that was there. At least it was done in a completely slipshod fashion, with the carpeting wedged under the baseboard molding. Pulling it out is a drag, but nowhere near as bad as tearing out those darned carpet tacking strips.

My school has its site and forums and they are not very populated. I have about 30 posts there and most of them are in the 'caladont' thread. I don't know if that game is played in other countries, but someone posts a word and then someone else has to post a word that begins with the two last letters of the previous one. And that's about the most succesfull thread on our school forum.  ;D

Letter

Newt

What happens when you can't get a word with those two letters?

Then the one who said 'newt' wins.  :( I never let anyone win when I'm around. Because Serbian is a bit different and I know many incorrect word forms from southern vocabulary  :evil since I have relatives in the infamous south. Also, when someone says a word that ends with ka (ca), if the next player says caladont, he wins.  :-X Whatever.

Yeah, we play this in Czech, too. In Czenglish it would be called verbal football ;D But we usually play it only with the last letter (hello -> Orinoco -> opice  ;D). In truth, I like some other games better - for example "townlet Palermo" :) The best way how to play this is, when there are at least 15 players; 2 are mafiasos, 1 is "korado" (=sheriff) and the rest are normal citizens. It can be really fun  :)

Hm, IMO it wasn't so bad - I quite liked it  :) On the other hand, people around me always say that I have absolutely no taste in music. And did I hear correctly - did they really sing in German? :o

That's one of the thing I don't understand in music competitions - for example Superstar. I didn't watch the whole series in "Czech looks for Superstar" (I guess I was the only one in our class) - I only sometimes saw some part of it. If it is "Czech looks for Superstar", why do the  contestant sing in English, German, etc. and not in Czech? ??? There are so many good song in Czech and they are not sang  :-\

And those people seem incapable of making a good song for Eurovision, even the ones who colud make some before. It's all politics  >:(

Heh... maybe they were right - but where was truth in the endings of their upheaval? But it's quite sad that it all have ended like that  :'( The history of the Europe is sometimes really interesting - I especially like the "knowledge-in-addition" - e.g. some quotes from Napoleon or from some emperor of Austria etc.

History is my most favorite subject - along with geography. Although I think it's sometimes pretty stupid - why should I bother to learn which types of industry is for example in the USA, when most of the Americans don't even know that something like Czech republic even exists? ???

When you understand at least part of the words which are sang, the German sounds good - trust me  ;) for example Die Ã?rzte - Stummer Schrei nach Liebe (or if you want to know what it means - "Die Ã?rzte - Silent Cry for Love").

Some of my family members were in work camps. My great-grandmother once told me story about that time. She said that once she secretly talked to one of the prisoners in some concentrate camp and gave him piece of bread. That man was so grateful for it that later he made a ring for her. She gave that ring to me - I still have it somewhere.

And Czechs fought. Maybe not in Protectorate, but in RAF or elsewhere. And from what I've heard or read, they fought well.

I think I didn't quite understand the part with "They didn't cried, when watch old photo's of their never-seen-alive family members :'(" ???


You know, I think we can't blame nowadays Germans for the war. If you look on it, then half of the Europe should hate Czechs for causing the war in years 1618-1648 :-[ Or at least Americans or Chinese should hate Japanese for attacking Pearl Harbour or occupation of Manchuria.

My mother's birthday is on Tuesday- I always feel guilty, but I usually just give her hugs and love on Mother's Day, and then a nice big present on her birthday.  Two presents so close to each other would usually break me.  I need to remember to buy something a few months in advance and keep it for her.  Sigh.

Don't think I could ever hate a nation for the antics of its leaders, but some do, I'm sure.

For a long time, many Americans *did* mistrust the Germans and the Japanese following the wars. Bruno Hauptmann was executed for his alleged role in kidnapping the baby of Charles Lindberg, although that followed in the wake of WW1, not WW2.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruno_Hauptmann

Japanese Americans were taken into protective custody and segregated from the general population until after WW2. Many lost their homes and had their careers derailed, and were understandably bitter about it. After all, it would be hard not to be bitter about what was effectively imprisonment for nothing more than your nationality. Germans in the US fared better as a group because you can't tell by looking at someone whether they are a recent immigrant or if some distant ancestor immigrated. At the time of the American Revolution, there were about as many Germans in what would become the US as there were English. Since so many Americans do claim German ancestry, backlash was minimized.

In the years following WW2, there was still a fair amount of mistrust, but there were soon other concerns. The fear of Communism grew, and the Cold War began. Distrust against the Japanese was slower to fade. My father was born in 1926 and served in WW2, in the Pacific campaign. He was a bigot, but at least he was wise enough to know that he was in the wrong, and didn't pass his prejudices on to his kids. He wouldn't buy anything made overseas, but it was understood that any comments about anybody's race, religion, or national origin were strictly forbidden. He understood that he couldn't do anything about his own prejudices, but he wouldn't pass them on. I'm grateful for that.

Let's talk about bellydancing!

Heh, I remember that once I've read some interview with some dancer from Turkey (but she married one Czech actor, so she lives here) and she said there, that the name "bellydances" is incorrect - it should be "oriental dances"  :o

Quote
I love it, personally. Took lessons, for a while, but was forced to conclude that I'm the least graceful thing on two legs.

It's really interesting how many people say that they are terribly clumsy, don't have how to move corectly while dancing etc. You know, when I was beginning with my dancing, I was like piece of wood and I couldn't remember the choreography :-[  but after a while I begun to move better - and since I was on Machol Czechia (that's great workshop - even the teachers from Israel are going to come! :)), i begun to remember the dances beter than most of my friends :o
It's all about time 8)

I learned that for two months and then all my friends gave up and winter came, so I gave up, too, although I liked it sooo much! Imagine, my father never got to know about my classes. He's like disgusted at those dancers  :P

That was IMO pretty stupid mistake - gave up that dancing only because your friends have done so. some of my friends have been playing violin, but suddenly they gave it up - but surprisingly, I didn't do it. And now I play almost 12 years  :)

Guys love women who can dance.

Yes, especially when most of the men I know can't  ;D

Title: Re: The Cafe of Broken Dreams
Post by: Bardess on May 15, 2007, 01:16:16 AM
I intend on taking dancing lessons again (the oriental ones) and none of my friends have to come, maybe I'll get to know new ones, someone that is more deeply interested in dancing, who won't be doing it only so they could boast at school.

When I was younger, I took latino and standard dance lessons for about year and a half. And there was this boy the teacher ordered me to dance with. The boy was nice, but when talking about that to my parents, I called him "wooden legs". I was disgusted at the people who didn't recognise the rhytm of the music, who danced as if they couldn't or wouldn't *hear*! Like this girl I danced with before, whom I could never stop when she started running around while dancing a slow dance.  >:(

Which is ironic, because most of the men I know flatly refuse to. Those that do seem to have a better time at weddings or other functions, though, so I don't know what the non-dancers gain by refusal.

They all wanted to check if there were dancers on the floor below. Then I started threatening.

No idea why this reminded me of the one CD named Belly Dance By BAssem Yazbeck :lilly I have to listen that CD again :)

Hm, like a violinist I have wuite good sense of rythm but making the steps of the dance in it is more difficult tahn I would have thought :D "Wooden legs" ? Heh, that reminds me one of my classmates - friend of mine (who had to dance with him) said "He's jumping around like some kind of goat!" And he has very bad habit to step on your toes.

There once was a word for a female actor, called "actress." Time was when the feminine form of "Master" was "Mistress." If you referred to someone as a mistress in public, you'd likely be slapped.

Moderatress was never a word, nor were counseless, gladiatress, or navigatress.

Yes, the "she" add-on to words gets boring after a while. She-devil, she-male, she-wolf, she-bear and so on. Next you'll have she-vampire, she-prince, she-baron and so on. ;D

There once was a word for a female actor, called "actress." Time was when the feminine form of "Master" was "Mistress." If you referred to someone as a mistress in public, you'd likely be slapped.

Moderatress was never a word, nor were counseless, gladiatress, or navigatress.

Could be worse, though. I'd rather be a navigatress than a she-navigator. ;)
So, I shouldn't be offended when they call me 'master' in a game? I always was. Thought they didn't think about female players. Even Edwin says "yes, maaaster?"

Yes, the "she" add-on to words gets boring after a while. She-devil, she-male, she-wolf, she-bear and so on. Next you'll have she-vampire, she-prince, she-baron and so on. ;D
And she-elf, by Mr. nazgul. She-male??  :P

Heh, I'm not trying to offende anyone here who's from the USA, yes?

I've heard about some research about Czech republic, made in the USA, somewhile around year 2000. The question was "What do you know about Czech republic?"
The results were quite sad in my opinion.

Most of the Americans didn't even know that something like Czech even existed.
Some of them remembered, that Czech is part of Soviet Union. (The Union lapsed 31th January 1991.)
Some of them remembered, that they know about something called Czechoslovakia. (Czechoslovakia lapsed 1th January, 1993.)

Hm, guess that at least the polled weren't good in History or in Geography ::)

Indeed. On another board at some point someone posted a link to some quiz for the geography. Basically you had to place various countries on the map. It was fun until almost all the americans on the board got angry that their results were the worst, so they decided that the thread was in fact a disguised America bash thread. ;D
It's not such a bad thing if you don't know something, no one can say they know absolutely everything, but what is bad is if you speak about something you don't know trying to look smart. Most of the time the result is completely the opposite. Like that girl who when asked who won the Vietnam war, first she answers that "we did" and then she asks "we're we even in the Vietnam war?". That's plain dumb.
OTOH, these are most likely the people who voted for Bush. He's well known about that famous quote: "The only thing I know about Slovakia is what I learned first-hand from your foreign minister, who came to Texas." replied to a slovakian journalist after he met with the slovenian foreign minister. :lilly

Arr. We have a monster as a biology proffessor and what more, she hates me! She always asks me first (on tests I come out excellent, but she gives them only if there's not enough time for everyone to be "asked"). And she adores giving me the lowest grade (1) even when I know something. And she starts "asking" for the final grade tomorrow (I mean, sure, she'll only *start* with me, and the rest of them are going to have about a month more to study!!!). You know, I average almost 4,70 at school and biology is my worst nightmare!

And what the most hilarious about it? we trained 7 dances - and we manage to dance only one of them really good  :D That would be shocker. I'm already looking forward to it  :)

and Saturday... we have been in Museum of military technics in LeÅ¡any - this museum is the only one in Europa which has movable Merkava 1 (that's israelish type of iron horse /huh, that sounds strange  :o/). I really like this type of technics  :wub

See the bright side. If there is no rain, the agriculture is going down and you'll end up starving. What's better to get wet or starve? :P

The National Farmers' Union (NFU) blamed the staffing shortfall on rising standards of living in Poland and other eastern Europe nations.

The NFU said that made workers in those countries less keen to come to the UK.


Eastern Europe countries are to blame because brits are too lazy to gather their harvest? ;D

There's this Czech beer I really like, Pilsner Urquel. Ordinarily, I'm not really a fan of beer quite that light, but the hops used to make it are incredibly fragrant. That, and it's light, vaguely citrusy taste, makes it a good hot-weather beer.

Unfortunately, somebody decided that it would have better marketing appeal if it were exported in green glass bottles. S-t-u-p-i-d. Green glass doesn't protect the beer from UV light, so the aromatic oils from those same hops decompose, and the beer winds up tasting really bad and smelling worse.

Why couldn't they have used brown glass?

To get the most out of Pilsner Urquel, you've got to buy it from a store that keeps it somewhere cool and dark, but goes through it fast enough to keep it fresh.

At the cost of Pilsner Urquel (US$ 8 or so for 6 x 375ml bottles), a skunked 6-pack is a real shame.

No that I would be some beer-fan (well, I'm still not 18 and I always prefered soft drinks like Kofola - at least this won't stick my mouth together like RC Cola or Coca Cola) but when I drank beer (mom sometimes buy one bottle for herself or when we are makeing strudel - and I can try it  ;D) I like for example Starobrno or Litovel better  :)

Green bottles? I think that Pilsner is in Czech sold in green bottles, too - so maybe they just don't want to change colour for export :D pff...

Close, but not quite.

It wasn't the taxes that our founding fathers found objectionable, it was the lack of representation. Taxes are inevitable. People may complain, but I don't think anyone really believes that there can be government without them. However, colonial Americans were expected to pay taxes as British subjects, but were not permited to have a voice in how they would be governed.

(Trying really hard not to think about Puerto Rico and Guam... people in these two places pay taxes, must register for selective service, aka "the draft," and are eligible for most, if not all of the benefits of citizenship, but I do not believe they have representatives in the Senate. The right to have representatives in the legislature would be available should they decide to become states, and I know that Puerto Rico has had an ongoing debate for years about whether or not they want to do this, but popular vote of Puerto Riccans has not gone in favor of statehood. In other words, they could become a state and get the benefits of statehood, but they keep turning it down. At which point, thier lack of representation becomes their choice, not political decree.)

I usually would fall asleep during classes, regardless of boring teaching or not. ;D In fact, once, a teacher even "complimented" my sleeping habits: "Look, why don't you sleep like him (he was now pointing at me), at least he's not interrupting my class" :D -> IIRC, this was because of a group of guys, in the back of the class that were always talking with each other.

It got me coughing on a sports class after we ran 500 meters for a mark. Sports is a torture, I tell you. Sorry to everyone who can do those things for an excellent mark, I can do some of them (like for leg or belly muscles), but can't, for example, throw a 4 kilo ball for 6 meters! (actually, I was the worst in that one), but I'm not preparing for a physical worker and I am most certainly not a monkey  >:( Whatever Edwin would have to add to that.

Luckily we have teacher with brain in her head - so we don't have to run X meters on mark. Firstly, we get points, not marks and secondly - she often tells us to run (or not to run) for 20 minutes and we get 20 points :) She understands that some of us are not so good in running. And btw, yesterday we "threw a 4 kilo ball" - and I've threw it for 6 meter and more  ;D

Heh.. my grandma (mom's mother) is really interesting - I've never had better object to study. I remember that one day she was talking to me and everything she said was so boring that I nodded to everything and absolutely didn't pay atention. And then suddenly - she was quiet. So I looked up and she said: "Do you know why you are so apathetic? I know it - it's beacuse of all that playing of computer games!" That almost send me from the chair I was sitting on in ROFL style :D On the other hand - not everyone is interested in gossip about her neighbors and who's gossiping who etc. But I guess that she still thinks I'm all apathetic :D

No driver's license suspended? Then it's all cool: no dead and/or wounded, and you still have both the car (in one piece) and the driver's license. ;D
It does sucks, though, to no longer have a clean criminal record. In Portugal, it takes 5 years for the act to be erased... 5 years of shame of being caught by the cops. ;D :P

BTW, any chance of taking your wife out on a date or offering her something, to mellow her out? ;) ;D

In Poland we have a system of penality points and when you reach 25 your driver's licence is suspended (you get for example 1 point for breaking the speed limit by 10km/h, and so on). The points wear off after 1 year.

Yup - that points are horrible  :-\ here you have IIRC only 7 points - but maybe I'm mistaken, our politicians often change something and I absolutely don't know what is still actual ???

Post by: Dead_Ghost on June 06, 2007, 01:36:25 AM
Ah, yes. Spain and France also have that system of points for the drivers. There's a research going on about implementing that system as well in Portugal...
I'm not sure if I agree with it. :-\ According with the study being made, ideally it would be a limit of 6 points during five years. If one got more than that during those 5 years, it would result in a suspended driver's license. The duration of the suspension would be dependent on the transgression... Now imagine that a guy gets caught parking the car wrongly enough times to break the limit -- not being allowed to drive for that? Seems a bit... off. :P

Now back to playing with my Tiefling Warlock in NWN2' OC. ;D

Post by: berelinde on June 06, 2007, 04:03:31 AM
As far as I know, every state in the US is different, but in New Jersey, they take your license away after you have exceeded 12 points, although you start to accrue serious fines after 6, and your insurance goes up so much that few could afford to drive after that point, anyway.

The number of points per incident varies with the severity of the incident. Exceeding the speed limit by 10 miles an hour will net you a 2 point ticket, but 15 would make it 4. Running a traffic light or a stop sign is 2 points, but causing an accident while doing so will almost certainly result in both the "failure to yield" ticket *and* a careless driving ticket, worth 4. Passing a stopped school bus will get you 8 points at one go, and it's probably the most severe penalty out there. If the policeman who pulls you over feels like being harsh, he can issue multiple tickets, though.

Get an UPS with a self-battery. Not only it will protect your PC of surge spikes, it will also allow you a number of minutes (depends on the model) to close all programs and shut down your computer properly.

Mine is almost six years old now, and it hasn't failed me once. Every time the power goes down at my place, the UPS grants me 30 minutes (give or take) to save everything and shut it down. ;D
Now that I think about it, that UPS and my monitor are the oldest hardware items that I still use nowadays... :D

Yup, it was. But on the other hand, Germany was language against which our national revivalists were fighting because German expelled Czech from everywhere - and yet we learn this language at school.  :lilly

Formerly, when we saw blank with classes for next year, there were options for exampte "Russian" and "another language". For a moment some of us wanted to write as another language Chinese or Finish - but luckily we had enough intellect for not doing it  :D

Among others he said that americans go to a picnic in the forest. Well, imagine that, so different, especially since US national day is in July, while Romania's is in December. ;D Who would go to picnic in December?

If they think they are black, they might not be albanians, but gypsies. There are gypsies all over Europe and despite what humanitarian organizations are claiming they are not oppressed. It's even in their culture the idea that stealing from a non-gypsy is a thing to be commended for. This sounds weird but most of the time is true.

Yes, I did. On TFN. There's even a photo of it freshly done. ;D

Tattoos are good.  :)

Indeed, I would like to get a tattoo.

The major problem here is I don't know what I would like to get a tattoo OF, and like hell I'm getting a tattoo I don't want for the sake of getting a tattoo, you know?

Usually, the shops where people make tattoos have a big number of drawings; you can also pick what you want right here in the web, just print it with the best resolution possible.

If possible, first go see a dermatologist and ask for tips and advices. He/She should be able to tell you all the necessary procedures and securities in getting a tattoo safely made, as well as what to do afterwards. ;)

Also, as it's your first tattoo, you'll want something small (preferably not much bigger than the size of your palm). It's somewhat rare, but there are people that cannot get tattoos due to a bad bodily reaction to the ink. Plus, it will help in getting used to it. ;) ;D

A few more general tips: choose a place to make a tattoo where they, the artists, administer a spray anesthetic -- it helps a lot more than getting drunk first. ;) ;D Think very carefully about where do you want a tattoo -- first, if you're thinking of a professional career where people can't have tattoos visible, you'll want it done somewhere it can't be normally seen, like your back, stomach or thighs. Second, since it will be your first and you're not familiar with this, you won't want to make it in a highly-sensible spot of your body, like the neck or a armpit, for that is where it will hurt/burn more.

You can get infected by AIDS when tattooing. If there's a virus somewhere near.  :crazy

If these rules are kept, there will be no AIDS or any other being passed along:

. in case it is needed, the razor used to shave the skin where the tattoo will be made, is a brand new previously-unopened disposable-one;
. the artist wears latex gloves and a simple facial mask, which covers his mouth and nose;
. the needle/brush ;) ;D is a brand new previously-unopened disposable-one;
. (not really necessary, but it can be reassuring to the person being tattooed) the artist swipes off any blood at the skin and transpiration  (around the area as well) with a clean toilet.

(not exactly sure, but I think that's it)

If it's still not enough, however, consult a dermatologist and ask him/her for the correct procedures and necessary securities. :)

The condition where you turn yellow is jaundice, and one of the diseases that can cause it is hepatitis.

Protections against HIV also protect against hepatitis.

Yes, but pretty much anything that causes liver problems causes jaundice.  Or so House would have us believe.  Awesome show, that.

You are right. Anything liver malfunctions can cause jaundice. But hepatitis is the one you can get from a dirty needle.

It can't live airborne, so you don't have to worry about it just floating around in the air, but it can be spread through droplet spray, so it's a good idea for your tatoo artist to wear a Hepa filtered mask, in case he sneezes or something. When protected by moisture, it can live on environmental surfaces for up to a week, so it's best to look for a clean work area that smells faintly of disinfectant. Both the hepatitis virus and HIV are killed by exposure to most disinfectants.

Good thing that I ran away from my mother's flat in Belgrade. When she bought it, I got the big room, but the drawback is that it has six windows (and it's the 11th floor), so you can't LIVE there during the summer! Mother has an air-conditioner, the evil brother took the fan and they left me to die there!! But I got away to my father's.  ;D

Edit: I think I'd need someone to cast protection from fire around my whole room. All the chocolates melted!

I can't find her to save my life and she manages to bite me in at least ten places each night, even though I tend to sleep wrapped up in my bed sheet. ???

Oh, and there's also this fly there that's immortal. Seriously, there's a net on my window and I'm always careful when I open my door not to let anything in, but it managed to sneak by and I've swatted it about twenty times now and it keeps coming back. I've even developed a habit of leaving its body somewhere I can see it, but in half an hour its gone and there's something buzzing around my room... other than annoying siblings.

Oh, yes, poor things. They're having trouble attracting new students nowdays. I heard they practically spread out a red carpet for anyone who does seem interested to apply.

I think they can find work, but the payment is too low in comparison to the torture they had to endure to get that diploma. A few years ago, there were 300 new students and they could accept 460 (260 would go for free and 200 would pay 1000 E). This year, there are more than 350. That's a step forward, I guess. And I will finish highschool in two years. They make me feel afraid  :o.

They say it's easy to get in, but hard to get out  ;D (on two legs, at least). It's like VI Bgd gimnazija, it is hard, so noone applies, so you need less points to get in. Then many people who can't go anywhere else come  :o.
But I'm mad enough to *want* to be a mathematics professor. I asked the students there if they would recommend me their university, and they said *but of course*. They are probably jealous because I'm still able to not ruin my life. ;D  But I will, one day. ;D

*sigh* Why the nil reports are always in groups? Last Thursday my grandma was on some tests and they have told her she most probably has another cancer. And just yesterday my great-grandma fell and broke her leg just in the worst possible place - right after the hip joint. She's now in hospital and is still unknown if she ever survive it. And today we got our reports - I've got the worst one I've ever get. I don't want to know what happen the next week.

Aaaah, a summer morning like any other. The birdies are singing, it's getting warmer by the nanosecond and the neighbours waking up to the sound of my maniacal giggling. Again.

It had started innocently: there I was, having my morning coffee, flipping through the channels and then I hit it: Wind and Cloud is back on Happy TV! I laughed SOOOO hard! I mean, it's hard to explain WHY even though you'd understand in a second if you saw the thing yourselves. Hehehe, I swear: that show sucks soooo bad it's actually gone around 180 degrees and became good.

Think: anime martial arts show, but not animated (real actors and all), anime hair styles on REAL people and special effects à la Power Rangers on methamphetamines. Slap on some love - not triangles but love polyhedrons where everyone's in love with the next person in line and no one returns anyone's love. :D

I think I'll definately watch an episode or two when I need a good laugh. :)

Pasta. You can never go wrong with pasta. At least as far as I am concerned. 2 years ago my cousin came from US with his girlfriend (italian), after they visited Italy. His girlfriend was surprised to find out that I knew more about italian cuisine than my cousin, even though I never went to Italy. ;D

Yeah, that's true - it can be worse ;D (but don't have to  ;D).  Mwahahaha.. guesss it's quite a pity you've never heard song from one Czech folk singer - Ladovská zima. That song was like a state song for us one time :D (you know, that was time when we have at least 1 meter tall flake of snow everywhere /except of building - we didn't have snow in flats - luckily/)

The fall is the best time of the year. Not too hot or cold, dreary over cast days with rain.  :)

Aw, you autumn-hating peeps have no sense for beauty. :P The fall is the most invigorating, beautiful, gentle, eventful time of the year! It's my time to fall in love instead of (yuk!) spring.

I mean, come on, September and October and that period of Indian Summer is like a natural parade of constant, sheer and utter beauty. All the trees still have their leaves, but now in all the colours from bright yellow to deep copper and the leaves that do fall off crumple under your feet so deliciously that you actually hope that it won't get swept off the streets. Even the bus ride from my town to Belgrade (which lasts for two hours and is really, generally a bother) is now enough to leave you breathless as you drive by miles and miles of intact forest which is no longer boring, uniform green (as Balashevic said in one of his ballads  :wub), but yellow, golden, orange, red, brownish and even some leftover green here and there. It can hold your attention better than the best of the BBC's documentaries about nature.

I remember, when I was a kid, how we used to play all day long, shuffling the foliage with our feet and keeping the most beautiful leaves as we searched for fallen-off chestnuts. Autumn was always a time of adventure, more so because we always had that feeling with us that the warm weather is ending and that this beauty will only last for a bit longer.

Oh, and I probably shouldn't bother with all the well-known cool stuff that makes autumn what it is: the harvests, the festivals, the families begining to celebrate their Saint's Days, the BOOK FAIR!  :wub :wub :wub

And there is one more beautiful thing that happens, but in late autumn and you have to lay in wait for it. Early in the morning, on the day of the first serious sub-zero temperature, all the remaining leaves in the treetops will fall off all at once. It only lasts for about five minutes or less, but it is beautiful, a sight to behold - like a rain of large, colourful confetti, followed by that distinct rustling sound you can only hear then. About a week after the colder weather starts I always get up early in the morning so that I don't miss it. It's kind of secret, you know, since not many people get up early enough to witness it. ;)

Oh, and the rain - what about it? We will spend the entire summer being microwaved to a crisp, mark my words! I would've thought rain would have more than a relaxing, therapeutic effect on people, especially those who don't handle heat too well because of health problems.  :-\ Besides, rain is lovely weather too. While it's cold and pouring outside you can always curl up in your warm room with a nice book and a cup of blistering hot tea/coffee/cocoa/ect. which, I might add, you can't really enjoy to their fullest in the summer.  :-\ If not a book, you can always enjoy those TV shows you've seen announced during summer as 'this September, the thrill begins!' or something like that.

Autumn has many, MANY charms. More than any other season, I'd wager. If you can't enjoy that you should probably wonder what can you enjoy.  :-\ I'm not saying I don't enjoy what spring and summer have to offer (if I can get around to expiriencing it with the people all around me getting ill from the heat and the mosquitos and other flying vermin and being burned to a crisp and all...), but I enjoy Fall way, WAY more and I won't change my mind because of several people who like easy summer fun and can't appreciate the little things in life say:"Oh, but the rain is wet and cold!" So, nyah.  :P

Aw, jeez, Undie, such a beginner's mistake... :'( Let Auntie Lilly teach you something: Vacation = NO MEANS OF COMMUNICATION WITH YOUR PREVIOUS LIFE. Cellphone - off. Regular phone - not around. Post office - taken over by terrorists. Tellegraph - wires taken off and recycled by ecomaniacs. Courier pidgeons - shot down by kids whose crazy parents get them air guns for their birthdays.

When you get back, if she tries to give you that 'I tried to reach you' it's just not your fault. In the end - you have a kid, for Pete's sake! The number of possibilities of infant-induced cellphone malfunctions surpass the modest boundaries our meager human imagination!

Oh, well... at least now she ows you one, right? A BIG one.  ;)

I was, of course, surprised when I first tried to lift this card, didn't really expect to find those boxes full.

I was able to get some important data off the drive. My old chat logs when I used to hang out at the FWP, TeamBG and some other IRC chat places. I was able to get some old mod tool software, my portraits from my Icewind Dale 2 portrait site. Good thing I am a pack rat and save files all over the computer. So my Frozen North IWD2 portrait site will be a project in the future. I was able to get some of my old RttN mod files. I may be able to get the area files I created. I need to get another hard drive, because I don't have the space right now for all of that.

I couldn't access the hard drive that had my Dark Horizons mod. That one is screwed badly. It's a 80G hard drive that showed up on File Scavenger as a 7.87G hard drive. Can't access any files on it.  >:(

Heh. I was a medical technician on a volunteer ambulance corps for 10 years. We didn't sleep in the ambulance garage, so we'd respond from home. One night, I was wakened for a call and felt particularly groggy, but dressed and responded anyway. As we were loading the patient onto the rig, my partner said "Hey, Ruth, your shoes don't match!"

And they didn't. I was wearing one dress shoe, one sneaker. The heels weren't even the same height, but since one of my legs is slightly shorter than the other anyway, it actually felt comfortable. The worst part was that I had to unload the patient at the hospital like that, and had to respond to two other calls after that, without the chance to get home to change. I've never been able to manage "suave" at any point in my life, I'm afraid.

1. You have to waste your time and effort to use said air.
2. You have to deserve it, somehow, in order to get a kick in the butt. Either you're the closest target for the butt-kicker, or you expressed something that provoked the butt-kicker to kick your butt for it.
3. You had to sacrifice a certain measure (figuratively speaking) of your own freedom for that. (not saying whether it is or not worth it, of course ;D)

1. But of course it's a cost. I could be using my time with anything else... "Time is valuable", and one must waste time to breathe in and out, in and out, in and out...
>.>
<.<
Point is, that it so soon (like, right after each of us is out of our mother's womb) becomes one of our own self-induced routines, that we "forget" (becomes an unconscious automatically-constant act) we're doing it at all, and that we're waisting time and effort to do so.
2. You're paying with your own ass for whatever it was that made the butt-kicker to act. XD
(not implying that your butt is the one who should be kicked, or that any butt at all must be kicked) :P
3. YA, RLY! :D You're bound not to be with anybody else on an intimate/romantic level, other than your wife, of course. That, as far as I can tell, implies sacrificing, to a certain limit, one's own freedom...

...

Wonder if I could tell a partner that I'm bound by a Geas not to be in any compromising relationship? :P ;D

...

Then again, I believe I'd rather face the pain of the Geas instead of a girl...
Hell hath no fury, like a woman scorned - William Congreve

But, really, enough about this philosophical talk...

On another note, the news are broadcasting the disparity of catastrophic fires in southern Europe and the floods in the UK. We've already had a couple of important fires here in Portugal so far (one was (probably self-made) in a tires' depot (for used-out tires), where a little over 10 tons of tires burned out. The black smoke could be seen (and breathed) many miles/kilometers away...

Of course if I'd ever think about another then the consequences would be terrible. And this is the real price :P

Hm...I feel a song coming...  :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

She's into superstitions black cats and voodoo dolls.
I feel a premonition that girl's gonna make me fall.
She's into new sensations new kicks in the candle light.
She's got a new addiction for every day and night.

She'll make you take your clothes off and go dancing in the rain.
She'll make you live her crazy life but she'll take away your pain
like a bullet to your brain. Come On!

[CHORUS:]
Upside, inside out she's livin la vida loca
She'll push and pull you down, livin la vida loca
Her lips are devil red and her skin's the color mocha
She will wear you out livin la vida loca Come On!
Livin la vida loca, Come on!
She's livin la vida loca.

Woke up in New York City in a funky cheap hotel
She took my heart and she took my money
she must've slipped me a sleeping pill
She never drinks the water and makes you order French Champagne
Once you've had a taste of her you'll never be the same
Yeah, she'll make you go insane.

[CHORUS]
Upside, inside out she's livin la vida loca
She'll push and pull you down, livin la vida loca
Her lips are devil red and her skin's the color mocha
She will wear you out livin la vida loca Come On!
Livin la vida loca, Come on!
She's livin la vida loca.

She'll make you take your clothes off and go dancing in the rain.
She'll make you live her crazy life
but she'll take away your pain like a bullet to your brain. Come On!

[CHORUS]
Upside, inside out she's livin la vida loca
She'll push and pull you down, livin la vida loca
Her lips are devil red and her skin's the color mocha
She will wear you out livin la vida loca Come On!
Livin la vida loca, Come on!
She's livin la vida loca.

Several years ago we used to have problems with mosquitoes in the evening, especially in areas near lakes (plenty of lakes in Bucharest). Lately however the drop some sort of substances harmless to humans but practically genocidal to mosquito eggs.

This summer is pissing me off. I'm moving to Finland to study. My term starts on the 23rd of August. Back in June, a Finn I met of D&D-online (and subsequently stayed at his house in Finland) said he would sort out a flat for me, and by the end of July he hadn't done anything at all and so that was that. I couldn't find anything by myself, it's extremely hard to from England. Then I was contacted by someone earlier this week who agreed to help me out and said he'd sort out a place for us. However, today he emailed saying that he'd found a place for himself, and good luck to me. Yeah, thanks for wasting my time, runkkari...
Now my only option is to move in with an Australian I know. The good - he's awesome, I already know him, I'd be getting a place in the beautiful town of Hämeenlinna. The bad - Hämeenlinna is 100km away from where I need to study. Gonna be spending a lot of euros on train fare. >:(

Yes, that sounds the same, except for the whole "building myself" part. I built the one I had before this, and it was all right, but after 4 years, it was still about as out of date as the one I've got now. It won't pay me to upgrade the video card, because I'm still going to have to upgrade the memory, processor, etc. Probably better to just wait until I get my tax refund and buy a new one.

I like building computers. My next one will be something with a Quad Core, two graphics cards and other expensive additions. That'll happen when I have the money.

This computer will do me just fine until then. The only games I look forward to in the future is Fallout 3, which this should be able to play.

Here's some wacky news. A month ago I joined a political party called the Liberal Democrat Party, I never attended any of their meetings and tomorrow there are elections for the juridical commission of the party. I went there to register as a voter and decided as an inspiration to register as a candidate for one of the 2 offices of vice-president. I am curious though to see if someone is actually going to vote for me, since is almost certain that no one knows me and probably I'm not going to vote for me either.  :lilly

Political office is bad for your health. Make a lot of enemies, get stressed out, peaple try and dig up dirt on you, etc. Look at pictures of Bush when he first took the office of President compared to what he looks like now. He's all worn out and haggard by looking at him now.

I have no interest in pursuing a political carrier. I'm in the juridical commission.

I know herbal meds do work, but trying to find stuff like that in this dump of a city is nil. Our society is based on taking synthetic chemicals that mask the pain and discomfort but does nothing as for being a cure or cutting the longevity of a cold or virus or whatever it may be.

Actually I am sick of this capitalistic society and it's don't give a damn attitude about people. All a capitalistic society cares about is making a profit, money. Example, me. Being sick, I can go to work and infect others, which is how I got it, sick workers. Why are there sick workers? Because society forces them to be there. They have bills to pay, children to feed, etc. I miss two days, which is not paid for. I made no money on those days I wasn't there, yet bill collectors really don't care, they just want their payment made.

The way I have been feeling over the years, just let me win the lotto and I would be done with society period. When I am dead and gone, being a believer in reincarnation, I don't ever want to come back. I am done with being reborn, just let it end.

You mentioned the biggest factor in people taking forever to get over colds and such - we all try and go places and do things.  The absolute best way to get over a cold is to just stay in bed and sleep a lot.  :)  Lets your immune system do its work without exposing it (theoretically, anyway) to anything new so that it gets to just focus on the one thing.

Also, how about that recent case where the RIAA managed to sue a woman, successfully, for $222,000 US based on a total of 24 downloaded songs?  That's $9250 US per song.  It boggles the mind, it does.

If you take a look at their site, you can see that legit websites like Myspace are in their opinion liable for trials. Myspace Music is basically a massive site where amateur bands share freely their music for various reasons (mostly because they are looking for sponsors). I can understand moves against people who actually sell pirated cd's an alike, but sharing is quite dumb, since internet is reduced to USA.

It's funny, the record labels aren't realizing that they only came to power because back in the day there was no effective way for artists to distribute the music themselves, so they were glad to let someone with the money to do it take over.

Now that we have the Internet, however, every musician can throw their music out there in a way that can make them money, just as long as they know what they're doing.

Actually, that happened because Ulrich heard, back in March 2000, about the music "I Disappear" (for the movie "Mission Impossible 2") being broadcast by several radio stations, a month before of actually being complete.
Quoting the drummer "That version was tracked to the origin, something called Napster. Someone was screwing with us, so we would screw them."

Ulrich also stated then that the legal battle was all about the music being taken without their consent, and not about the money...
Title: Re: The Cafe of Broken Dreams
Post by: Redrake on October 09, 2007, 09:42:07 AM
At least they said "something called Napster". Still, Metallica is a serious band unlike a lot of those currently on the market. I worked with some clients and I've seen how the contracts for music bands look like. Basically, the band gives to their producers (music companies) the copyrights for their songs in at least 75%, reaching to even 100%. So all that crap RIAA says about protecting the copyrights of those artists is pure BS.

An X-Wing model being built.

Some model rocket experts built a X-Wing. It came with a mock R2 unit as well.

This is what happened after a week, when they went out to test it:

Some time in the future I want to get a lap top or a server. I have some credit at Dell finally. I like lap tops because you can take it with you to do work on. The problem with them is battery life and they are fragile. I want to get my own server so I can put some of our websites on it instead of dishing out a monthly fee for hosting.  :-\

There are some pretty decently priced servers out there if one is willing to invest in one.
Title: Re: The Cafe of Broken Dreams

With what I want with the server it will cost me about $1200.

A lap top would be far cheaper. I would get the basics and one with a good CPU. Its not like I would play 3D games on it. Lap tops are not meant to be game computers any how.

Laptop sucks -- small, very fragile, and if there's a problem with hardware, it must be sent directly to the manufacturer which can take months to be returned. Upgrading it is also very limited, not to mention that desktop PC's will always be "more powerful", so to speak. Plus, according to a study made in 2006 (or was it in the first semester of 2007?) by a University (of California, IIRC), it can cause impotence to the males if used over the thighs. :D
The only laptops worth one's money, IMO, are those notebooks. Smaller and cheaper, they are to be used primarily as a notebook, and it serves said function very well...

Also ordered a new PC. ;D
. Motherboard Asus P5VD2-MX
. Intel Dual Core E2160 (1.8 Ghz)
. 2x1Gb DDRII PC667 Mhz
. Hard-Drive 160GB SATAII UDMA150 7200RPM
. Graphic Card XFX Geforce 8400 GS
. a Power Source 600W Silent
. a recording DVD drive DVDRW NEC AD-7170 IDE 18x Dual Layer IDE
. and a Windows Vista Home Premium

Very basic and already outdated, but I'll be upgrading it in the near future, first with a Creative Sound Card (preferably, an X-Fi), and then with a Quad-Core and double the RAM. Lastly, it will be a new Graphic Card; this will be hopefully taking place during the next two years...

Sunny weather around here, with a moderate cold front. One can be at ease in the street with just a sweat-shirt and regular pants. ;D

That is another big problem with lap tops and others like them, upgrades and repair. I do both on my computers and on a lap top I wouldn't know what to do with it.

I have nothing against English (well, maybe against some stupid people who speak English). I've just said that the lessons of English conversationa are useless. Why? Most of the lessons we do some pointless exercises - like the one we had on Thuersday. Our teacher (Victoria) dictated us around 25 words and we should make sentences compound of that words. I don't see anything about it what should help us in our quest for the certificate.

The english they teach you in schools is not the usual english is the one used in english literature. Don't worry about it. You won't have to use it ever again. Usually most of the people from non-english speaking country get bad grades when it comes to that part, but they speak english perfectly. My parents took me to a english teacher when I was 7, and by the time I started english in school (12) I knew it reasonably well. However in the school I still had medium grades on it. ;D

Here in the States the day after Thanksgiving is the first official day of Christmas shopping. Usually the first few hours, 5 AM to 10-11 AM are the times of big sales in the stores. I made the foolish mistake of attending one of these big sales in a few stores I frequent. Its bad enough you can't find a parking space much less navigate in the stores because its crowded probably beyond the legal limit of how many people can be inside a building.

Lets just say I came home empty handed.  >:(

My mother would disagree with me here, because she absolutely loves crowds, but I can't think of any sale that would make it worthwhile to put up with the madhouses that are stores at this time of year. I always do my holiday shopping on either the 23rd or the 24th. Oddly enough, most of the stores are deserted on the 23rd.

One of the benefits of having satellite connection for the tv is being able to get satellite radio Sirius. I listen to the channel that had songs from the 80's, from my growing up time. Nice to hear some of those songs again, some others I prefer not to hear again were played. Next time I'll put it on the heavy metal station.

As I'm ill at the moment, I feel conflicted. On one side I'm quite glad I missed test in chemistry (I will have to write as soon as I get back to school) but on the other side, I missed also one orchestra lesson - so I won't be able to play on one orchestra performation. Then, instead of me sitting by computer it○s me doing gods-know-what 'cause my mother is ill, too. I just hope I don't have angina - if I could chose, I would rather stick by pharyngitis since doctor didn't know which one I actually have (guess I came to her too soon). Well, if nothing else, I can at least draw...

It's okay. I may be young but I'm cynical like a withered old man.  :D

I can only wonder as to how I'll be when I actually AM a withered old man. Juding by my plans, I'll probably seem to have Alzheimer's just because I want to be a crazy old man who yells random things for the hell of it. Thus, I must get rich, so that people allow me to be a crazy old man who does strange things.

LOL college. Been there done that. Gone no where.  :(

Better then being a high-school dropout.

At least around 30 I pulled my head out of my as bum and got my GED.

I was one of the stupid kids, who got bored/disenchanted with my priavte school educationa nd wasted my family's money, then went to public schools and never bothered with homework because in my junior year, they were studing the same things we did in 7th grade (no joke).

Of course, doing stupid crap like that is why I have a history of many jobs, with little future, and little income.

sistersinister gave me the boot in the bum I needed to quit pissing around and make something of myself.

Home Depot might not be much, but you can go as far as you want in this company (plus they signed me at almost double minimum wage for this state).

It just bugs me sometimes. I am proud of my punk rock roots/youth, but now I am working for not just the second largest retailer in the world, but one that is a government contractor...

I can't decide if I grew up, if I am simply a burnout, or I am a total sell-out.

It wasn't so much being there at 9, it was that the list of things I had to do to be ready resulted in me getting up waaaaay before 9.

Now I'm back to 10 minutes for a shower, a couple minutes for a shave, and then the 5ish minutes it takes for my coffee maker to make enough to fill my travel mug. I like being able to get ready fast.  :)

Edit - that and the fact that it's basically impossible to get any sleep around here until around 2 or 3 in the morning, and I function terribly on 4-5 hours of sleep. 8-10 is much better. Maybe 7 if I push it.
