    [​IMG] If it's any consolation I got an A level by turning up to two exams and writing nothing but jokes (many of which not exactly PC)

    I refuse to include it on my CV, because if asked on the subject my only answer is that I can be insensitive to a variety of types of person in a manner in which observers appreciate my humour.

    I am pleased to report that, on Day 1 of Steam's Halloween Sale, there are no games that interest me that I don't already own.

    You had to say it.

    The only game I completed three times in my life. Vampire the Masquerade bloodlines. the second most bugged game I ever played. It was rushed to make room for some shooter in the holiday season with the same engine. The studio went bust weeks after release.

    Playing it now with a un-official patcs and mod.

    Still buggy, still a very good game as soon as you accept older graphics. the patch also include a resolution mod for widescreen.

    the world itself is barely interactive. I always take Morrowind as basic oldschool.

    Morrowind with Skyrim engine....

    I am reading VTM novels. A serie of 13. pdf for around 4 bucks.

    The world would explode due to sheer awesomeness.
    IMHO Morrowind > Skyrim > Oblivion. I know, I know I genuinely preferred Skyrim over Oblivion meh sue me. Cyrodil just looked both awesome and kinda generic in a typical medieval setting kinda way. Vvanderfell on the other hand, so cool :cool:

    I wanted to go out yesterday and meet a few people in the pub, possibly getting to know some new folks. I decided to take a short nap first, because I was really tired, and set my alarm clock at midnight. Somehow the darn thing didn't go off and I woke up at 5 AM, the time I usually leave that pub...

    :D I dreamed of having a second chance in about 17 minutes (it's 11.43 pm here atm)

    Don't ask yourself "How does he do that?" or "What does she see in him", but imagine what kind of super woman you must end up with. :)

    So I just realized yesterday that the first and second Elder Scrolls game are available for free off of their website. I loaded up Daggerfall and was greeted with a poorly acted live action cut scene. I will never look at the series the same way again.

    Well today was municipal election day; I did my duty and voted. Go democracy ! Also it's getting cold out here... winter is coming.

    PS: Well I might get a job as a closed caption...er. Y'know, the guy who types subtitles for the deaf ? That would be a nice gig.

    I am so completely embarrassed right now. My oldest son just went on FB and told the guy I work with that I have a huge secret crush on, that I like him. I've spent the last 20 minutes sitting in front of the computer with my head down and my hand covering my eyes reliving the embarassment. Also know this guy read the message already.

    Well, maybe that will break the ice and work out for you. Errrr, maybe??

    If so, you'll actually wind up having to thank your son. Heh.

    Geez, that's what my son said. Btw the guy messaged me back and said " hehehe, no need to be embarrased"

    Also this is the same shy guy I wrote about in a thread months ago.

    There are times as a parent I reflect on a quote by Bill Cosby:

    Son, I brought you into this world; I can take you out.

    I suspect this is your son's way of saying to you "if you're not going to do anything about this, I will" :D

    ---------- Added 0 hours, 3 minutes and 53 seconds later... ----------

    And on a separate note, I just realized that Rob Ford has the opportunity to be immortalized in at least three of our threads (and numerous times in each) - Jokie Posties, Gigantic Funny Pics, and Big Impressive/Cool/Funny Weird Videos. How awesome is that?

    Edit: Actually, on a more serious note, this guy needs help. Hopefully his wake-up call won't be something totally disastrous.

    The fact that I, who live on the other side of the Atlantic, know who Rob Ford is without Googling his name, is a (sad) comment on how true that is.

    I've never understood crack mayors. Crack is the lowliest drug out there, and you can't be 'cool' in any sense while using it (hence denigrative terms like crackhead, etc.) See the sad case of Whitney Houston if you have any doubts about crack cocaine's acceptability in the mainstream.

    You can use heroin or designer cocaine and be cool though, and yet this guy chooses crack like he's a street urchin, not the mayor of Canada's largest city. Weird ... :nuts:
