In Other News – 29 March 2016

I don’t generally like sweet things. I’m not fond of jams and jellies, and I prefer my baked goods to be savoury – but I really can’t resist a tea-time scone, with strawberry jam and a bit of whipped cream. I’d never go out of my way to make ‘em, and I won’t go out of my way to find ‘em, but if they’re available, I will put them in my face and have a damned good time doing so. Just don’t make me actually drink tea, please.

In Other News – Dark Souls beatdown, Everybody’s gone to the PC, Two Worlds 2 Furious and there’s a riot about Riot.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because OH GOOD IT’S NOT ACTUALLY MONDAY!

      Is it Geoff’s fault it is Tasty Tuesday?

      For me, this looks like anything can happen (and it did) Tuesday

          Misfortune, no. I do not laugh at other people’s misfortune. Stupidity though: I sometimes think that deserves to be laughed at.

          Seen a picture of you.

          You are, shall we say, larger (tall, very tall) than life. Would that the chair would hold so long as it did.

            Eloquent, indeed.

            For the layman reading this: he said Hammer is huge (not fat, huge) and the chair wouldn’t hold under his weight.

            My apologies. Sometimes my inner condescension needs a little air.

            Admiral isn’t here. Your lucky he aint.

            Also, it’s raining and I’m on the bike. I didn’t check the weather this morning, and don’t have my rain gear. Sad. Fucking. Face.

          • Hammersteyn

            March 29, 2016 at 16:29

            Crap, that’s bad, maybe it’ll clear up soon. Where is Admiral anyway?

          • Pariah

            March 29, 2016 at 16:30

            No idea, but his absence has been noted. I’m more than a few grammar errors went untouched today. I hope he reads them ALL tomorrow. 😀

            And no, it’ll clear up at about 4am tomorrow, according to the weather. So, home wet it is.

            Still better than my division roll, especially against a few clowns that decided it’s a good idea to go rogue against anything low level at the entrances of the dark zone, the poor lvl 17 dude that joined me kept respawning close to where they kept killing everyone, needless to say I got penalized from lvl 35 down to 33 trying to help the dude out, roughly 6 hours of grinding down the drain… And then I got the same Constitution roll that you had, just a smaller dosage…

            March 29, 2016 at 16:26

            hehe this is true, obviously with my weight in mind I would stack at least fourth chairs and attempt it on grass. At the very least the grass would cushion the blow to my face

            Are you like a cat then?

            Land on your face? Oh, so not that much like a cat. But your face? Surely is easier to land with hands out or something like that?
