Well, that rather sucked

"What we have here, essentially, is a monument to a very niche of the gaming market. It doesn't just ignore the indie scene, it ignores big swaths of the "mainstream" print market to resolutely chase the fading memories of a gone time. This is the work of an audience afraid of the future and unprepared for it, who want nothing but what they've had before."

Bruce Baugh has summed up why I hate the Origins Awards. Fuck them. Fuck them in their myopic, braindead skulls.

So, today. Today was scary. Woke up at nine, for some obscure reason which jibed painfully with my going to bed not three hours earlier. Checked post. Something from the Uni. I keep expecting something official picking me up on my rather shite attendance record. I head back into my room, still not realising what time it is, open it up...

An invoice from the library, for the books that are a month and a half overdue. Thirty quid a book, four quid a book processing charge. The better part of seventy bloody pounds. This ain't a good thing when I'm having to watch how much I spend on food bills so I don't hit my overdraft limit. So I ask Steve (who is awake before ten for some damn stupid reason) and he seems to think the library's open 10-4. Only now do I bother to ask what time it is, as if that might give me an answer as to why I'm feeling so shite, and find out. So I walk in, only to find that the damn place isn't open while 1 in the afternoon. Another half an hour for the walk back, and I collapse into bed. Wake up at five minus change, walk in again (I'm getting tired of these fucking walks by now), get everything sorted out in that I can still pay the fine and that voids the invoice. Seventeen quid is a lot nicer price for some overdue books than seventy. But still, that sums up most of my day.

Oh, and then I get back to the Forum, to find people saying "Ahhh, Achilles[1] has been well behaved the last couple of weeks, I'm going to forgive him." Excuse me? Have these people taken leave of their senses, or just forgotten what Shithead is like? He does this every fscking time he returns. Each and every time. He comes back, acts all polite and normal for a while, gets some people to trust him or forgive him or whatever then get s his rocks off a couple of weeks later when he starts shit all over again. How people can be so utterly fucking naive as to trust this moron when he's acting true to form is beyond me. But yeah, I ain't ever going to trust Shithead. The four times he's pulled this stunt so far have made me think that this time is going to be just the same. But don't worry. I'll try not to take too much pleasure in saying "I told you so" when I inevitably will have to.

I need to catch up with work this weekend. I've had too much time that I've taken to myself. I need to refocus and code stuff... and the library has the books I need.

A Friends Only post follows this, and it's for a subset of the list so don't be upset if you're on the list but the post don't seem to be there. It's a warning as I know some people that are on the list don't normally log in and I probably won't catch them on IMs.

Nah, you're not alone on this one Stew. I can already tell trace amounts of assholeness in his comments. The newbies are the ones mostly saying that anyways.

Fucker got Amado banned and he summarily quit the Forums. Not that's just fucking sad; for as much as I dislike Amado, he's still a welcome presence there as far as I'm concerned.

Achilles is a Werewolf Forumite?

Mar. 29th, 2003 03:44 pm (UTC)
Originally, yes. He later infected other Forums.
Mar. 29th, 2003 04:17 pm (UTC)
Infected, as in spread like the syph throughout the hooker population of a small city full of horny teenagers.

Personally, while I'm pleased to see that Achilles is being somewhat decent as of late, I know way too well that it won't last. The minorly annoying comments are already there; they're just cleverly disguised. Soon...very, very soon...he'll go fuckwad again. And then I'll hand him his ass, get him to say something racist, derogatory and offensive --he always does, after all-- and then give him what he gave Amado via Conrad.

I only wish I could give him a D-Con and Draino enema instead. 8X

Re: Achilles
Stew, I'm sure you've probably read some of the ranting in my LJ about Jeremy, the asshole we recently got rid of... should I start copying those rants over to the Werewolf Forum in an attempt to get people to realize that people like Achilles and Jeremy get better just so they get the sheer joy of getting worse later?

What's worrying is that I'm only half-kidding on that...
Mar. 29th, 2003 04:44 pm (UTC)
Nah, no need. I kinda almost want the thrill of getting Shithead[1] banned again. That way I get to say "I told you so" and act all smug.

[1]: I'm refraining as much as possible from the use of this creature's common handle. Use it too much and it might just turn up, see? It's what caused Shithead to return after it's longest absence.

It's a bit like snow. It never snows unless someone notices that it hasn't snowed in a bit, and then they say something about it. Mention snow, and POOF! There it is.

Crap. Three times in one post. I'll see y'all when I finally dig out. :-(
Mar. 29th, 2003 05:39 pm (UTC)
Four. I'm so thrown by the idea of s*** that I can't even count.

"That Which Shall Not Be Named"

So if you say it 3 times, does he explode? Or is it like Beetlejuice, and if you say it 3 times he latches on to your flesh and you never get rid of him?

I'm thinking it's the second...
Mar. 30th, 2003 08:28 am (UTC)
The later. He's the only person I've ever emailed off-forum in order to send them a nice, big cup o' shut the fuck up.
Mar. 29th, 2003 09:08 pm (UTC)
That was insightful. Thanks for pointing me that way.

Do I know Achilles[1]?
Mar. 30th, 2003 03:37 am (UTC)
No problem.

Troll of the White Wolf Forums, currently going by the screen name of "TheIlliadsHero". I dunno if it's spread to the Vampire forum in it's latest incarnation, though.
Mar. 30th, 2003 01:19 pm (UTC)
not as yet...nor have I seen it in Mummy, KOTE, or Exalted

actually, I think it may have once or twice, but left. I think I recall it being banned by the time I saw it's posts.
Mar. 30th, 2003 07:50 pm (UTC)
actually he has. posting a lot of newbie idiot type questions.

Mar. 31st, 2003 08:45 am (UTC)
I haven't been on the forums since Friday, but I know he was starting his "nice" schtick before then. Makes us look like asses for telling him off, and then soon enough, he'll bring forth the explosive written diarrhea that is his trolling.

I mean, hell, he got Amado banned for the first time in several months, yet he can keep coming back. Conrad needs to just permaban the little fucker.
