So to make a long story short... I went on vacation in Drumheller for a couple of days.  I drove out, booked a room with a Jacuzzi and hauled a troublemaker along with me.  I completed a friend's challenge, had a lot of fun, spent some money and recharged.  Life is good!  Below is the story of the proof of my insanity.

 I was linked this by a friend and holy shit if it isn't me in black and white on the screen!  Dealing with me isn't easy, I'm definitely an acquired taste, but it's immensely relieving to discover I am not alone in my batshit insanity.  Thank you Chuck Wendig for giving me a primer to share with people on dealing with a writer!

Beware of Writer

Beware of Writer II

Hopefully this helps you all deal with the writers in your life, feel free to share.  And if you are a writer, save those close to you from the confusion and direct them to Chuck's blog.

"I've never really understood the appeal of these MMORPGs myself but then I hate people enough in the real world let alone bothering to enter a second made up universe to learn to despise them all over again."  Charlie Brooker's Gameswipe

I have been introduced to Charlie Brooker and have been watching all his videos on Youtube and basically laughing myself stupid.  He's acerbic and not politically correct in any way and pretty much smack on with his commentary on the idiocy in society.  He's not quite as much a hero as George Carlin, but I've only just discovered him.  If you want a good introduction that's clean (some of his skits aren't safe for virgin ears) then try this one and move on to his rants on US TV, Aspirational TV, and the American News Media.

I was working my way through his Gameswipe when I hit the comment above.  I laughed until my ribs hurt, then replayed it to transcribe it because it pretty much sums up how I'm feeling about the RP world right now.

On my interest in RP. )
EDIT:  After being assured by the mod it wasn't anything I had done to make myself a pariah, I come online tonight (Saturday after I posted this original rant) to find all kinds of new threads active and alive.  None involving my character or a place where they might jump into the fray mind you, but there is RP... just not for me.   FML

 So, not out of any true conviction on our parts but out of a desire to support a family member who wholeheartedly believes in living green, our household participated in Earth Hour this year.

Yes, I sat in the dark with a cat who kept falling off the sofa and talked over nothing much with the others in the room.  It was strange because the streetlight outside the window was enough to light up the room.  It wasn't the worst way to spend a Saturday night except for the do or die hockey game my team was embroiled in that I was missing thanks to sitting in the dark.  As for the cat, I think her eyes are starting to go or she was seriously touch drunk with all the attention she got.  She isn't usually quite so demonstrative with her affection but with three people sitting around talking, she was in heaven.  She is a senior cat after all, so maybe there is something to the eyes thing, but it was unintentionally hilarious because we'd be talking about something then *THUD*.

*pause*  Cat?

*nod*  Cat.  Touch drunk cat.  
*pause*  Is she hurt?

*cat leaps up into my lap and meows*
Apparently not.

*resume conversation*
As an aside, my team won their game.  They still have to win the next five against good or better teams but there's still hope for the playoffs.
