losing patience  
Perhaps it is because I am tired ... or perhaps, somewhere in my subconscious, I feel like I have better things to be doing with my time ... could these be the reasons why my club doesn't seem as funny to me anymore? When I first joined, I could sit through an hour and a half of pointless jokes, interruptions, and contests, but right now ... all I want them to do is just sit down and shut up, so we can get through the meeting routine and go home. It's like I'm there out of duty, now, rather than to have a good time.

...

A friend of mine turned 21 yesterday, and just about everyone informed him that they would get him totally smashed either that night or this weekend at the LARP that he attends. He did not want to, but they kept on talking over him. When I asked them if they had considered his feelings on the matter, they guffawed and acted like how he felt about it was inconsequential, they were going to do it anyway. That laughing indifference really, really infuriates me. I wish I had the power to stop them. I hope no one tries to pull that with me when I turn 21, for their benefit and for mine ... friend or father, I refuse to tolerate that kind of treatment.

...

I have met some of the flakiest people ever this year. They're very nice, actually, just ... honestly untrustworthy, and they expect you to forgive them for their failings. I have to wonder how they manage to pass the classes that we share, given that we do have attendance requirements.

...

Everyone and their mother assigning their midterm all in one go was a bad move on the part of academia. Same with finals. Bad idea. Bad stress. Bad kharma for those system adminstrators!

...

I had to kill cute Tonberries (attired in chef outfits no less) in Crystal Chronicles. This would be bad enough on its own, but the boss of that particular level wiped the floor with my poor little Yuke, and the inability to save while in a level makes that an incredibly ... frustrating experience for me. I have little desire to go back and do that particular level all over again. Must work up the inspiration.

Eek, Tonberries.

I haven't seen them yet in FFXI, but I'm quite terrified XD

They're pretty fast little buggers in Crystal Chronicles, but it only takes three hits o' a spell to down 'em. I feel like I'm killing my kin. XD;

Drinking is lame, the end! ^__^

Agreed. ::kicks the "college drinking scene" in the shins::

Nice new name, by the way. XD

Yeah, I don't get the "fun" of getting smashed. I've never been drunk, nor do I plan to be. I'll have a drink every two months or so (so it seems, lol), but only if the mood strikes me. And it's always a girly drink, haha. But anyway, yeah people who are indifferent to other's feelings makes me mad. I hope your friend will stick up for himself and do what HE wants to do.

Also, those chef tonberries are the cutest! I want to dress Libby up as one if I make my Selkie costume. The cuteness would be overwhelming.
But good luck with that boss, he's kinda hard by yourself, and you're supposed to take his lady friend out first, if you didn't know that ^^

I had figured as much while I was getting my tush tossed ... I did manage to get rid of her before I perished. I was shocked to discover that he seems to regen. o_o The entire thing was very frustrating. o_o It's like ... not only does she cast Slow, but it affects a huge area, so even if you're nowhere near the casting point, you still get slowed anyway ... and then he comes along and smacks you even if you run. >.< I can't run fast, man! XD;; There's no safe spot, and nothing really drops HP-restorin' items in that level ... and I must've missed the Cure, or maybe it didn't exist, because dammit, I didn't have it. It was ... evil. >.< I really hate having to reobtain magic every level. >.>;;
Lizladyaltara on March 10th, 2004 06:51 am (UTC)
Yeah, reobtaining sucks...hrm, I seem to remember there being a Cure though, as well as Clear, cause I would cast Clear to get rid of Slow. It still took time though ;_;
Also, to try and help you (^^), the Lamia chick is supposed to be weak against Thunder and Blizzard spells, while the guy himself is weak against fire based spells.
Good luck beating their butts!

Indeed, there is a cure somewhere on that level. Be sure you check all the rooms. And yah, the dumb ho keeps curing him so kick her ass first. That game hurts me with it's cuteness.
One Who Wanders: go figureabiona on March 10th, 2004 12:49 pm (UTC)
Hah, so that's what was going on. I was too occupied with running around like a chicken with my head cut off to notice that ... I would just look up and discover that all the damage I had done was gone. XD "Whaaaaaaat? No fair!"

That Cure will be mine! ::shakes fists::

Familiarity breeds contempt, so maybe you just need a break and a change of scenery, people and places. Sometimes being around people can be tired, and it’s nice to get away and enjoy some solitude.

I'll joke about drinking and tease people, and I see nothing wrong with it if you handle it intelligently, but I'm not much of a drinker myself. I've not had much of a desire to get piss faced, projectile vomiting drunk. Whee.

"They're very nice, actually, just ... honestly untrustworthy, and they expect you to forgive them for their failings."

Yes! Just because someone is "nice" doesn't mean they can screw up over and over and always be forgiven, especially if they never acknowledge it.

And the word Tonberries makes me think of a breakfast cereal, like the little pink puffs in Captain Crunch.

I repeat: Tonberries are sexy!

I totally agree with you Anne on the drinking thing. People should care what your feelings are on the subject. My 21st is in less than a month and I plan on walking into Dave & Busters ordering one small drink and then playing video games the rest of the night. (That is if I'm not broke ^_^) Turning 21 only gives me more options as far as getting into clubs and such, but that happens on so rare of occasions that I really don't care all that much. I also hear you on the flaky people thing, I'm in a class called team development right now which is driving me nuts. I really don't understand how these people are going to be graduating in a couple of months. Ah well.. not much I can do except laugh at flaky people sometimes... Anyhow.. Smile hun! I'm finding a way to get you to Otakon!
