I can has meme?
Against my better judgment, I clicked on Larísa’s link to Ixo’s post, which was mentioned by Gevlon, who was flamed out by Jong, who was linked by Elleiras, who begat Isaac, who begat Abraham, who begat Saul, who begat the rest of the old testament, thus begetting this awesome new blogger internet meme. Seriously, I gigglesnort at the thought of actually trying to respond to this drama. Save your drama for the game people! That’s where the real trolls are at!
But seriously, can this be a meme? Against my better judgment, I became convinced that this was in fact, a meme.
Alternate History Syndrome
Anyways, Leyola’s branching backstories are almost done. I managed to sneak in a bunch of writing time during my lunch break, at the cost of actually having lunch. Expect some neat little graphics to accompany it, requiring several thousand hours on microsoft paint. Oh god I love that thing.
Bros before Moroes
Just wanted to share a story with you that I thought was quite inspiring from my perspective. My friend started playing WoW just this year. I got him linked to my account via recruit-a-friend, and he’s been having a blast levelling with me.
In fact, he’s having too much of a blast. Due to his addictive personality, it’s been getting in the way of his academics, as he’s doing a masters in his field of study. Instead of cleaning out petri dishes, he’s cleaning up animal hides with his constantly maxed out skinning skill.
However, he’s a good guy with great judgment (oh here goes that word again!). This past monday, he told me to change the password to his account, so he will be unable to play until he’s done his project. I give him so much cred, since he’s easily susceptible to that sort of thing, and because WoW is often a ridiculously addicting time-sink at times.
This is the summer when a lot of blogs start celebrating one-year anniversaries. Mine is next week on the 14th, so expect something exciting (and probably rushed, as my posts always are) to commemorate that particular milestone. I wish to say nothing further, since it will steal content from what can potentially become an actual post.
Secondly, the real announcement is that I will be away on vacation for most of August, and a bit of late July. I leave for China/Japan/Thailand on the 28th, so I will be sure to repeatedly remind everyone to expect less posting to occur from that point onwards. I forget the duration of the trip, so let’s assume that it’s for about 2-3 weeks. Perhaps a gnomeageddon-inspired googled feature will do the trick.
I mean honestly, after getting the Xzibit Fanfiction hit the other day, it got one-upped with “arcade games with michael jackson.” Seriously internet, what the fuck? And no, I’m not going to make a flash game with MJ in it. It’s just too soon. Xzibit, however, is fair game.
See you around the internether!
