    Huum, going back a decade would put me back in High School, I really, really don't want to relive that. :p

    How could you not want to relive high school? It's clearly something everyone would want to do if they had a chance. ;)

    Sarcasm aside, I did have fun in high school though.

    Okay, maybe not fun—I had about a 40% attendance because it was boring as hell—but all my mental scars from that era are entirely high school-unrelated. :shake:

    It wasn't that bad, I have a few fond memories of the time, although none seems to be academic-related.

    That's the crux of the matter. People trying to make you go left, while you look to the right.

    For some, school is better after puberty.

    There's school after puberty? I finished my degree before I got out of puberty. :shake:

    Just in case you guys are confused, "puberty" is not some kind of a British drinking establishment. :p

    Not yet at least, that's an awesome name for a pub. I might try to open it right here. Although, technically, it wouldn't be British but who cares right ?. Now I just need to learn how to manage a business. How hard could it be ? What, two-three weeks tops ?

    Depends on whether or not they taught you business economics in college. :p

    Having a pub named Puberty would give birth to many fun phrases and expressions that would endlessly confuse non-locals.

    Suddenly "prepubescent" would just mean you're sober, the effects of hangover would be known as "growing pains", and "menstrual cycle" might simply be the name of an aptly-colored drink.

    "Have you had your menstrual cycle yet?"
    "Nah, man, I'm prepubescent. Plus, I've still got growing pains from yesterday."

    That would be a weird conversation to hear from a couple of grown men. Oh, the possibilities. :shake:

    For the record the present tense would be more appropriate since I'm still in College and the answer's no, I haven't got any business classes. But I'm awesome and I think my great uncle twice removed owned a dinner in the 70s, so, that's like in my blood right ? :rolleyes:

    You could also set ladies' night at the end of a 28 day cycle. :D just sayin'

    PS: I decided to pick up drawing again; am I rusty or what. It's nothing like riding a bicycle. I never was that good to begin with, but now, Geez.

    Tips: Do not try drawing your fantasy woman, it'll turn out disastrous and ruin your imagination.

    And now Steam has started its Holiday Sale. I'm betting that the list of unplayed games in my Steam library is going to get longer. :rolleyes:

    Repeat after me: I will not buy games I don't need. I will not buy games I don't need. I will no-Why are there products in my cart? Dammit. :bang:

    Really? I never had much trouble picking up drawing after long periods of time. I mean, my strokes aren't quite as sure as they are after I've been drawing for a while, but the result is usually the same.

    Starting my vacation ... not going back to work until next year.

    Just picked up Witcher 2 for $4.99 (USD) -- I've decided I like GOG and at the same time I hate it. I really don't have enough time to play the games I bought (or got free like Fallout Tactics). I finally got Fallout 3 and Neverwinter Nights 2 to work by getting a new toy: intel core i7-3632QM 2.2 GHz with 8 gig ram, nVidea GForce GT640M with 2 gig. Very nice for a laptop.

    I've got one more very, very busy work day tomorrow that I'll work from home, and then I'm on vacation until 01/02. I'm not sure I've ever had that much time off work. Looking forward to every second of it. It's been quiiiite a year....

    Hoping to make some good progress on my BG2EE runthrough, among other activities.

    Do you ever really need a game? A better criterium would be to only buy games that you'll have time to play.
