Back to Work, I think.

I should probably start working on layouts again.
I don't know. I've been on hiatus for like 2 weeks, and eventually people will start turning to others for their layouts.

I actually think this wasn't a resting hiatus.
It was a Left 4 Dead hiatus.
An excuse for me to play without any interruptions.

Someone that I made a layout for sent me a 20 dollar subway giftcard.
That was uber cool. I went and got myself a sandwich.
And my mom got one, too.
And they were delicious.

I still have 10 dollars on the card. And I'm hungry right now. But I can't do anything about that. Ungh.

I just went through my email and emailed everyone that's asked for a layout. So that's a step in the right direction.
I'm super tired today. Again. What is wrong with me? No matter how much I sleep I'm tired.
It's like god is pouring ambien into my sodas.
"What're you doing, dad?"
"I'm making Lee tired. Watch, watch, she's yawning again!"
"Isn't that wrong, dad?"
"Go to your room, Jesus."

Yeah, I'm probably going to hell for that.
Worth it.

My mom finally got some curtains up, which is good. I couldn't see the TV because there are windows RIGHT behind me.
I was trying to play Left 4 Dead. "I CAN'T SEE ANY ZOMBIES THERE IS GLARE ON MY... I'm dead, aren't I?" "Yep." "Balls."

I almost met someone last night that I met on xbox. It sounds dangerous, but my mom was with me and it was at Subway.
Her name is Jessie and she literally lives 2 minutes away from me. It was really weird. She was telling a story and said she lived in Vegas. "What? Me too! That's weird!"
Later on I asked what part of town, just being nice. "Oh, I live over at the ***** and ***."

Let me stop here for a minute. I made sure in going over the conversation that I never told her where I lived first. She always did.
"I live over around ******* (broad area), but wait... I'm moving around that same area you're in. Do you know where there's a walmart?" "Yeah, I live right next to it."
And then it hit me that she lives in my neighborhood.
Out of millions of people on xbox, I run into someone that lives in my neighborhood.
Weird weird weird.
But we were going to meet at Subway with my mom, and she was going to bring her kids. But then her son spilled chocolate milk on himself.

Let me say that I don't condone meeting people from the internet. But I figured you're better off meeting in a public place with someone there with you than going over to their house and meeting alone.
Because that's how you get found 20 years later in a basement eating crackers and talking to rats.

My sociology project is almost done.
I'm going to show you guys my research project that I'm setting up.
And if my teacher googles my paper to make sure I didn't steal it and comes across this, well that would suck.
Because she would think I stole it from this page.
That would be random, right? "HONESTLY, THAT'S MY BLOG."

My research question: What is the common perception that male video-gamers have of female video-gamers?

Screw it. That's all you're getting. But I'll further explain it now.
I'm going to interview people I meet on xbox. Over the xbox, obviously. I'm not going to meet all of them. I'm going to ask them a series of questions about female gamers. Something like this:
What do you think the typical female gamer looks like?
How well do you think the typical girl gamer plays video games?
How intelligent do you think the typical girl gamer is?
etc. etc.

From what I gather I'll get a "typical" response.
Oh, and me and my friend were sexually harassed on xbox a couple nights ago. Actually that friend was Jessie. Someone sent us messages. The one I got was just him moaning and saying I have a sexy voice.
She got a lot of worse smut. We reported him.
And got all of our other friends to report him.
We actually have a gang of friends, and we always play together on left 4 dead. It's really fun.

One of them, we call him Kush. (I call him KUSHIEEEEBEAR! And Jessie calls him KUSHIEBEN!!") He's deployed in Turkey right now in the Air Force. "I'm serving my country!" "No, you're serving your country THANKSGIVING DINNER."
We laughed so hard at that. We laugh a lot when we play together. We're like the xbox best friends.
And kush is a southern gentlemen. When that guy harassed us he went crazy. Sent out this nasty message about him to all of his friends and had them report him.
So that was sweet.

I need to go eat lunch. So... here's my required material in order to post this blog without being stoned to death:

Oh, and before I forget, here's two videos to make you laugh. One is the original, of a kid that was drugged at the dentist and his dad is recording him in the back seat of the car, and the other is him "20 years later" after getting a divorce. (it's a spoof, obviously)

The divorce one is my favorite.

I am planning on killing everyone at my meet and greet next week.

Stesha said...

It was a good idea to have your mom with you because people are crazy.

Are you getting enough iron? Lack of iron can make you tired.

I can't watch the video, because the sound on my laptop stopped working.

Hugs and Mocha,

Erin said...

I was wondering if you might have mono. I wonder why you are so tired?

That.Girl said...

Ha, ha! Those videos are great!

Yaya said...



I had seen the first video but I was just laughing my ass off at the divorce one! Hahahahahahahahahaha!!!!

Sheri said...

That is a really good idea for a paper. If you need more interviewees I could ask some guys on Guild Wars for ya. Just let me know with more info and stuff. :)

Angela said...

Hilarious videos!!

It's cool that people are paying you for your designs. Maybe you should set up a paypal account and people can just pay into that. Speaking of your designs...I think I need a new one. The trip is over...time to have a groovy design like the one you have. I'm so jealous! ;)

Wendyburd1 said...

Have you ever asked your doc if you could have Chronic Fatigue, etc? You could, never know.

It's cool that an xbox friend lives so close by and could be potentially cool!LOL

Liz said...

That's awesome that someone sent you a gift card.

I would definitely be careful about meeting people from the internet. There are a lot of weirdos out there.

Good luck with your Sociology project. It sounds very interesting.

Jess said...

I swear everyone is tired at this time of year - I must have visited at least 5 completely different blogs where everyone is just yawning.
Yaya gave me a link to your blog - I really like it!
Good luck with sociology paper and layouts etc.
