I just spent twenty dollars on Dark Souls: Prepare to Die edition on my PC. Spent literally an hour trying to set up Games For Windows Live, and then wrangling with the crappy control system. I get into the game, and it moves like molasses. Then, it shuts itself down because the framerate is too slow for online play.

What a fucking waste of money.

I don't understand this! My computer can play Fallout New Vegas and Team Fortress 2 okay, but this game just fucks it.

What anti-virus program do you have? Some of them *cough*Norton*cough* can slow things down immensely or even make them shut down.

Not Norton, never. I have McAfee Antivirus, which is awesome.

Thanks though.

Two days ago at work a teenage girl left her baby, stroller and all, with one of my female coworkers on her break and never came back. I thought after leaving my job at The Worst Movie Theater In Philadelphia for a daycare in Center City this kinda stuff would stop happening. Like.... damn......

Happy Philadelphia Thanksgiving everyone!

My TV died and now I'm watching programs on my son's old set...when he isn't playing his XBox, which interferes with it somehow (husband hooked it up to OUR XBox, and it completely confused the controller with my son's set, so TV isn't in the cards for me until he gets home...I haven't a clue how to fix it).

The PC version is a steaming pile but there's a fan-made fix out there that fixes a lot of the optimization trouble.

It's been Boxing Day, and I went for the Family Party.

Obviously we were eating.

I accidentally ate off a plate that had a Christmas Card on it. That had been chewed by one of the babies. Because I thought it was a napkin.

I do something stupid every year at these things that everybody remembers. This seems to be this year's thing.

I had a seizure today. This morning. It's been a few weeks and this one just comes out of the blue. It SUCKS.

If that doesn't constitute bad news, I don't know what does.

Hey so Harley how are things just in general? You still with that guy? Where did you sink all your time while you were gone? TVTropes? Gaia? Facebook games?

A friend of mine was orally raped by her ex last night. (it's more complicated than that too)

She won't go to the police - she says they're useless since they have been useless before - and she lives in Austrailia so I can't make her and accompany her.

My life is rapidly turning into a soap opera. I must do something to help her but I'm not sure what. How am I supposed to write about rape if it's happening to somebody i care about?

Putting out the rubbish last night, I slipped and fell on the garden path. Lower back hurts like hell, I think I've damaged my coccyx. Ouch.

I took another nasty fall yesterday, I'm ass-deep in departmental stupidity and wanton fuckery (oh, Cyberwulf, you would tear heads off with this one), and my bagpipe instructor has again made comments about my physical ability to play the instrument.

And on top of that, I'm on an insane deadline for edits on a major document that should have been out a WEEK ago. In every other year, I see each chunk a few times, so the final edit consists of a quick glance at any new, last-minute changes. This year, not only am I seeing about 80-85 pages for the first time, the writing staff openly admits to using Google Translate to come up with the English version. Of course, this was only disclosed after I sat there wondering what the hell was wrong that I was only averaging 6 pages an hour.

Why, you crazy researchers, why would you use Google Translate to go from Chinese to English on a major report? Why did you think this was a good idea?

It did, in parts. I could tell there was some attempt to clean it up, but yeah. It hurt, and it took a good four times longer than it should have.

According to Track Changes, I had 2,990 total revisions: 1,727 insertions, 1,019 deletions, 9 formatting changes (not counting the ones I suggested but didn't/couldn't make), and 235 comments. All of this on a document only 96 pages long.

At this point, I'm done with my role in the project. The best part is that the boss has agreed that we will do things differently on next year's project so that the whole thing doesn't feel like one big game of "Kill the Editor." Yay!

You know that expression "Peep not at a keyhole, lest you be vexed"?

Yeah, that's really true.
