I’m still around. Things are still complicated and difficult, but this? This is really cool. Check it out, tell me your favorite. I’m having a hard time deciding between a skynet of cyborgs and an itself of Yahwehs.

Graders Please Note :
As Ball is getting closer and closer to maxing out Pyken as a skill, I would like to request that in places where Ball is not doing enough to constitute Pyken XP if Pyken technique lores could be issued instead.

Examples of proper XP level for Pyken would be: Ball developing or refining his technique by adding new thing against an actual moving target, not a dummy.

The use of basic skills alone are not enough to accomplish XP at Ball's current level of Pyken.

Thank you.

I will be handling all Ball related posts on Mondays @ 1800 my time *

A caper! I didn’t see that one. Isn’t that list awesome? It made my day. :)

Tuesday morning mini-rant:

It’s a universal truth that whenever someone starts by saying they don’t mean to be rude or mean or disrespectful something is about to come out of their mouth that is the epitome of rude and mean and disrespectful. The irony is that they think admitting they know how rude it is somehow excuses them saying it. No, darlin’. That just means you think you have a license to be a shithead. Everyone else knows better.

lol Rosela.

The joys of the 'no offense' phrase... I say it some times, but most of the time my comment is usually some quip of sarcasm, dripping horribly with it and not meant to be construed rudely (even though it prolly is... -.-)

That phrase murders me every time. However, I like the idea of a "license to be a shithead". That's a good idea. I wonder if my nearby school offers a certification.

That image was great, also! I shared it with my friends on skype, and we picked our favourites also; mine is like Ball's, but I kind of wish I could see what a group of Xenomorphs was to mix up with that Predator one!

And on a final, more important note, I really hope the good things are sticking around and bathing you in their glory, because good things are good to have in terrible times.

But isn't it okay to be a shithead once in a while? You southern girls! I prefer open shitheadedness infinitely more than passive agressive or buried insults dressed in polite niceties. All these are equally grievous but at least the first one lacks pretentiousness.

Oh, I agree with you. lol Open shitheadedness is absolutely preferred over passive aggressive bullshit et cetera. Well, I prefer it at least. But that's part of why it annoys me so much when someone starts off with a "I don't mean to be rude" or "no offense, but", because it's like they're pretending admitting it is an excuse or justification. If they have an actual excuse and justification for being a shithead, then they need to tell it to me rather than just assume I won't be offended because they said so.

Can you tell I'm having a crap day? Thank god for this scrap to vent in, y'all. And it's completely true -- southern women are way more prevalent to "bless hearts" and deliver veiled insults. My own mother, who is really a lovely woman, nonetheless has told me at least a hundred times that people can't tell you're talking shit if you do it through your teeth, aka a smile.

Of course, it's mostly meant as a joke. But, you know, only mostly.
