Good lord anyone else have those days when you check out that super dead forum you used to post on all the time years ago and cringe at how all your old posts are the most obnoxious twee teenager things ever created? Or is it just me?? I hate Past!Me, haha. Why did any of you like her, honestly. It's weird how barren this place is now, considering how gung-ho we all were back in like 2012/2013 about never letting this place die. This has been some nostalgia trip... feels like my time here happened decades ago rather than only a few years ago. I wonder how you guys are doing these days, even the users I wasn't close friends with (or close in the slightest, or even flat-out dislike) you all were pretty special and/or entertaining and will always be a part of my teenage years. IDK, I doubt anyone will see this post anyways. Is the IRC even active still? I'm too nervous to check hah.
Most retail shops are hourly pay so I guess since they're open til late people will get the extra hours paid without hassle. Not sure what the protocol would be regarding like, Amazon/the post offices and delivery companies though. Once it settles as a definitely annual thing there'll be something, lol. At least (so far as I know) the shops here aren't opening at crazy early hours like I've heard what happens in the US, just open til later than usual. The shopping centre here closes at half 5 on fridays usually, but is open til like 8pm for Black Friday? Just like what happens every Thursday I guess lol. But with MORE ADVERTISING and DEALS. I will not be going near the centre tomorrow. Last year I made that mistake and just. queues. queues everywhere. not even happy queues.
Christmas basically does everything Thanksgiving does, lol. From what I've been told anyways. It's such a questionable holiday in many ways. have fun spending time with the families you don't really want to spend time with though guys! But yeah Black Friday has become a thing here somehow. It's gross as heck. Becoming more like America everyday! woooop. Definitely since last year though I've noticed it becoming an actual literal thing, the advertising has been RELENTLESS since. Thank god I don't have to work tomorrow..
I fell asleep during the true lab section of the stream last night and I'm so mad I missed all his goofy reactions there most definitely would have been lots of at all the stuff that happens in the ending u_u american stream timezone privilege is a real thing... at least I got to see the frankly disturbing reaction to alphys date. I guess. I was genuinely concerned you were like gonna choke to death during that lol
are you literally me I am fighting this guy right now and, as hilarious and ridiculous a concept his character is that I like a lot, the actual dodging attacks shit feels literally impossible. Everything he throws at you is like, too much at once and unless you have superhuman reflexes you can't avoid them. And puppy the bombs. Nobody has reflexes this good I refuse to believe it. Same with Muffet. Cute but annoying. I really am enjoying the characters and story and general feel/humour of the game, and I think the choice of killing monsters or sparing them and that changes the tone of the game is a really neat spin on the formula, you can tell a lot of effort and charm went into making this game, but my god, every boss fight has tripped me up and killed me repeatedly lol. Even some random monsters have killed me. I JUST CAN'T DODGE TO SAVE MY LIFE. It is really a bit draining lol. Play this game people but prepare yourself to die endlessly and have a million healing items on you at all times no question. Also stop letting over-enthusiastic fans dictate how much you like something you really just need to learn to ignore them and let them get on with their fun. It can be annoying sure but like, you don't have to look at it. You can close the tumblr page. Just experience it on its own merits.
I would totally go to the cat cafe with you anytime if you're looking for people to go with! It sounds like they'd have a ton of rules about how to interact with the cats but it wasn't too strict, just take off shoes/wear blue protective bags over shoes when inside the cafe and don't lift up the cats. That was it. Otherwise get tea and cakes and just walk around the place bugging whatever cat you could find. The staff were really friendly and chatty and laidback as well. One of the most relaxing/stress-free places I've ever been in. Overall defs would recommend and would go with anyone who asked me lmao. I am definitely a cat person moreso than a dog person tho. Dogs are cute and sweet and lovable as well, but they are way more work to deal with. Not in a bad way, but just so much that I could never have one with my lifestyle and give it the proper care it deserved. Cats are more chill. And anyways "Cats are pissy little turds that only come to you when they want something from you." is pretty much me anyways lol so we're basically a perfect match. No problems with that here.
Locking this thread because we've had this exact discussion a million times, we all know each other's viewpoints on this issue. It's just not worth the effort or time anymore. But next time you have this "debate" anywhere, Lethe Albion, try being more sensitive and not get huffy and whiny when people don't respond kindly to your negative opinion of them/their group. And don't just hide behind the tired old "it's just my opinion" statement whenever facing opposition to your views. You're entitled to your opinion, sure, but others are also entitled to disagree with you and be upset with you because of it. It goes both ways. (P.S. Using "SJW", social justice warrior, social justice, etc as a term to discredit/put down people who aren't conservative's viewpoints is a total cop-out of an argument, very indicative of your personality/attitude towards these issues, and so goddamn tired. It really does invalidate your entire point IMO. The internet needs to shut up with it.)
Penguins > Bears. Fact. But damn was our Splatfest REALLY close this time, the results were literally 52% - 48% both rounds, but South had more wins and North was more popular. It was really balanced. As ridiculous a choice the topic was it made for a fairer and less predictable result! Better than the last two Splatfests for sure. And of course I made sure I was South Pole and Penguin Queen. For some reason we got the American titles for each rank this time. Not sure why. I guess it sounds less dumb than "Eternal South Pole Girl" lol.
