Your Score: Monk

55% Combativeness, 66% Sneakiness, 82% Intellect, 69% Spirituality

Pretty much good at everything: You are a Monk!
No, not a monk like those bald medieval guys. The Monk in D&D is a martial artist. They're smart, they're capable, they're spiritual, they're sneaky when they want to be, and they're damn dangerous in a fight.
What to say? You scored high on all four categories, which means that you're probably a well rounded and capable person. Either that or you're an overly smart and dangerous psychopath.

Gakked from Ro! w00T Whom I haven't seen in forever!!! Waves madly at Ro [25 Jun 2007|07:37pm]

Your Score: Semicolon

You scored 30% Sociability and 64% Sophistication!

Congratulations! You are the semicolon! You are the highest expression of punctuation; no one has more of a right to be proud. In the hands of a master, you will purr, sneering at commas, dismissing periods as beneath your contempt. You separate and connect at the same time, and no one does it better. The novice will find you difficult to come to terms with, but you need no one. You are secure in your elegance, knowing that you, and only you, have the power to mark the skill or incompetence of the craftsman. You have no natural enemies; all fear you. And never, NEVER let anyone tell you that you cannot appear in dialogue!

I had to chant to myself "Not going to make it personal" more than a few times.

But here it's safe to say, and I don't really care how public it is...

X, your utter callusness and lack of caring for others sometimes boggles my mind.

You are the poster the staff bent over backwards to give extra chances to, to understand your pain when you lost your father. Boy what a waste that was!

Well, of course, I'm a Texan! [29 Apr 2007|07:09pm]
What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on Memegen.net

Southern. Love it or hate it, your accent says you're probably from somewhere south of the Ohio River.

Take this quiz now - it's easy!
We're going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?

Haven't done one of these in ages...stolen from Pip...

How evil are you?

I'm still alive, they put me into a walking cast on Friday, but I can't walk- still undewr strict no weight, no pressure, "your bones look like sucked out candy cane sticks." Wording mine, they were ...kinder about it...

Yeah, the x rays show no improvement, and they spent another ten minutes or so trying to get my ankle to relocate. I think the fact that they didn't have to sedate me, or that I wasn't screaming and writhing in pain has them a little spooked. Or maybe it's a lot spooked. They just keep watching me out of the corner of their eyes as they manipulate my grossly swollen ankle. Sorry to disappoint them.

It's been awhile, hasn't it, but on the whole there's not been much to say that wasn't depressing in one way or another.

I'm still waiting on the results of the last biopsy.

I still miss Mr. Soft as Silk badly, and Sheba...lets just say that my heart will never be whole.

Training? all eight weeks of it is going to be one big snooze, I can do it in my sleep - if I don't kill my fellow classmates out of sheer frustration at their brainlessness.

Finally got to see 300 - damn good epicy sword and sandal blood fest - though I nearly choked on my laughter when they had Xerxies doing "Gou'uld" voice.

New year? Hopefully a better year than last.

Too many losses this last year, the lastest being the loss of Basheba Blind Kitty, called back to the Goddess on Dec 7. That about killed me, hurting even more than the lost of my Mr. Soft as Silk.

I just have to hope that thingsstart turning round, I don't know how much more strength I have, and part of me much doesn't care. Too much pain, physical and emotional, too little support. I have only myself - and the responsibilities I am too stubborn to let go of - if I could find some one t6o take them on I think I'd just let go.

[ mood | infuriated ]

Well I left FT- being told to calm down, that some one's violations of the rules would be a one time thing- which is total Bull Shit- I had to publicly put a game on hold and require a major edit, I had seen and said something about prior violations ( but not required edits ) before. He had had a major talking to from me, A, and GS less than three days previously - and he did it again! what a FA, Mr. Total Ego. To full, flat out major PC's and gave them no chance to respond. And when I write the player involved I get told that oh it's all right that he did it to me, I know he won't do it again...

That is so bull shit. It's not who he did it too, which player he did it to - it's that he broke one of the very few rules, one of the most basic rules you find at every on- line RPing site. You DO NOT do major actions to another's PC with out giving them a chance to respond- you do not make, and complete, an attack against a PC. You stop posting and give them a chance to respond.

Basic rule of on line gaming.

This is freaking multiple violations. I'm not staying with a group that allows that bull shit.

and no I'm not angry - I am appaled, and disappointed... no I AM infuritated, and this is after 24 hours of cool down.

Edited - I couldn't let that attrocious spelling stand LOL

Okay, thats it, I am officially and completely fed up with a certain player. My gods the lot of us talked to him in IM and explained why what he was doing was flat out wrong.

And the arrogant stupid son of a bitch did it again. And this time with full out player controled PC's. Thank goodness for his sake that I'm not the GM in the RP he did it in. I'm on the verge of kicking him out of the games I run as it is. The next time he does it in one of my games I will, and to hell with the fact that I like him as a person.

Ouch Groan and Moan ( and not with pleasure )- yesterday I celebrated by walking around the townhouse - ALOT- and I'm paying for it today. But I'll take the pain and just not walk about as much today.

The weather has turned hot again sadly - the couple of days we had of cool were great.

Poor Diane, on top of all her other troubles she got into poison ivy up near Huntsville and she is one of those that reacts horridly to it. This is about as much her year as it is mine.

I've had to come down hard on one of my players - keeps doing things to other players character's and not giving them any chance to respond to it. If it were little things like handing over a cup of water when asked, it'd be okay but he keeps doing major interaction and that is just so disrespectful and poor RP! I've tried talking to this player before, but it doesn't seem to register with them.

And the nukes - even with the new and much improved various difficulties in getting them and maintaining them - keep flying over at CN. Fortuantely I managed to get the bonus resource 'radiation clean up' and thus my environment rating is still very good. It took me forever to get the right bundle of trades lined up, but now I am sitting pretty. And my ranking is good - I am in the top 2,000 - out of over 200,000 + nations - so thats the top 10%.

I'm still not sure about CC - a 'year' has passed and my yearly salary is supposed to be $19 K plus a touch, but you get 'paid' daily and a game year is 5 RL days - I only get $50 a daily paycheck...that really shorts one over the game year. It's got other things that I am not happy with but it only went beta last week, and the designer is saying that there will be changes. I'm willing to keep on but...

I don't want to try and describe what my poor toes look like right now. Suffice it to say yuck is an understatement.

But I've gone 24 hours without any pain meds and that feels great- I hate how muzzy they make me feel. The muscle relaxers are worse, muzzy AND they put me to sleep without warning - or maybe it's just my body trying to force me into faster healing? but it is irritating to drop off in the middle of reading.

It's a lovely morning out and wonderfully cool outside. I sat just outside the doorway and watched the sun rise. The cats got all nervous - they hate my wheelchair - to them me going outside in it is a sign that I'm going to be disappearing again.

I am very disappointed in LoP - We knew that as soon as Kathy left he'd start kicking those out who differed in view point with him - but a form PM - not even the courtesy of individualizing it - and LoP prides himself on being so careing. I never had a problem with LoP as a person - he is a wonderful person. Any problems I had with him were in the end professional/proceedural *Shrug*

A big part of me stopped careing back when Rov sold the board without any notice to any one - including Kathy. I knew that Rov hadn't cared about the board in a long time but for him to do it in such an underhanded manner was hurtfull. And yes I have reasons for considering the way it was done as underhanded, but I'm not going to go into that.

I just hope that EI continues to grow and be a good place to be around, and not become some version of "TK lite."

Is it me, a curse, or simply co-inky-dink?

I've been gone the last seven days.


Last Thursday I fell in the laundry room. Glad that Jaie was home as I couldn't stand -Decided to wait over night to see how bad it was. Still unable to stand the next day, and so was carted off to the ER. Fifteen hours, multiple x rays and a cat scan later they diagnosed it as a profound fracture of the pubic ramus.

Can I cry now? Not because of the pain - I'm on sime good meds, but out of sheer frustration. Medically speaking I have never had a worse year.

Pneumonia ( 2 weeks in the hospital), DVT's ( coumadin ), compression fractures ( fall ), return of cancer scare/ mass in Pancreas concerns ( week in hospital ), internal bleeding ( week in hospital ), pelvic fracture ( week in hopsital )

Bah Humbug!

Such sad news to hear that Steve Irwin has passed on and in such an odd manner. I always felt that his work would be his death some day - but he was doing what he loved and thats what counts. I can't imagine him being the sort to die in bed.

My heart goes out to his family and friends - he will be most sorely missed.

I can't count the number if his shows that had me going "Is that man NUTS!!!!!!"

He will be most sorely missed.

Blessed Be Steve, Blessed Be.

War, wonderful war, twice a day on Sunday... [03 Sep 2006|08:53pm]
[ mood | amused ]

I am rolling my eyes at some people. Get a grip, get a life, it's just a message board.

Whineing about breaking the rules, getting caught and getting punished for it should not be what you spend 99% of your time in life doing.

Getting hit by a war is no fun, but the game mods aren't there to stop wars.

They are there to enforce the few simple rules and you broke them - lighten up will ya?

What a Lue ( snicker ) ser!

Home again [02 Sep 2006|06:21pm]
Few people know it but I just spent the last five days in the hospital. I went in Monday afternoon for my regularly scheduled AC clinic and ended up in the ER. My blood pressure was 60 over 45 and I has having bad chest pains. The instant thought was, of course, Heart Attack.

Fortunately it wasn't. I was having some internal bleeding and they used vitamin K to cancel the coumadin, and gave me a pint of whole blood. A positive, not so hard to stock thankfully.

They decided, after ahuling me down to the GI lab not to do the EUS ( thats the down your nose with a rubber hose and mini camera to us non medical types ) and rolled me back up to my room late Friday afternoon. They know about the polyps, the most likely sourse of the bleed, so the EUS would have been rahter useless.

But I got discharged a little later and drove myself home.

I have being without internet, absolutely hate it.

but I am glad to be home.

Can I say that the cats weren't happy while I was gone, and they have let me know it.

This is what my friend Eric wrote about his mother - and I am very sorry that I never got to meet her

In 1922 a woman was born who in her lifetime would touch the lives of many. Her childhood was like others around her and like many now. Sledding and skating in winter and swimming in summer. Going to school. Her school was a one room schoolhouse and there was inkwell and pen that she would use for her work.

Perhaps some unique things was the goose that used to chase her from the gate to house when she came home. Or the bull's pastor she and her brother would have to run through when her mother called her home, racing across the field with only a simple trip meaning injury or death, but running fearlessly through it as she made her way to her mother's voice.

She grew up and graduated high school and went onto nursing school. There she learned the tender art of caring for others. This was a profession she would carry through her life. Caring for those she didn't know during her career. Caring for her friends and her family and her children even after retirement. Always there with gentle wisdom and understanding. Willing to offer advice, listen and help guide those who sought it. Those who spoke with her didn't always follow her advice, but she was there even then to pick up the pieces of thier mistakes and gently and lovingly put them back on thier feet to allow them to stand on thier own again. All who knew her called her mom. Friends and family alike. Friends of hers or her family. She could walk out back and yell 'here babe' and have half a dozen squirrels come bounding to her. Or grow things in a climate where it wasn't supposed to grow.

Fifteen years ago she had gotten cancer and fought it to remission. She was clean of the cancer for some time. When it came back she fought it again into remission. She was a gentle and kind soul. But she had a strength. Not that which one would see, but a quiet strength that lent itself to others in it's very calm.

Three years ago the cancer returned again. She sustained through three years of various treatments. Though she was sick to one degree or another every day for those three years she still never failed to be there with her wisdom and silent strength. A month ago she decided to stop the treatment. She was tired and wanted to rest.

Last night her mother called her home for the last time. She left behind her legacy of warmth and love and wisdom and she will be missed by all who knew her.

This is a true story.

And I will miss my mother.

Sadness for a Friend [26 Aug 2006|11:20am]
E's mother passed on last night. She will be missed...

Our Farwell

In my hands
A legacy of memories
I can hear you say my name
I can almost see your smile
Feel the warmth of your embrace
But there is nothing but silence now
Around the one I loved
Is this our farewell?

Sweet darling you worry too much, my child
See the sadness in your eyes
You are not alone in life
Although you might think that you are

Never thought
This day would come so soon
We had no time to say goodbye
How can the world just carry on?
I feel so lost when you are not by my side
But there's nothing but silence now
Around the one I loved
Is this our farewell?

So sorry your world is tumbling down
I will watch you through these nights
Rest your head and go to sleep
Because my child, this not our farewell.
This is not our farewell.

Blessed Be, and thank you, you raised a wonderful son.
