Let's just say that's where I've been all this time. Almost had one in 2009 but I just knew it would go all wrong before it even started. I'm to the point that if God is indeed out there, I feel he is doing this just to taunt me.

Royal Fail it is. Well, I'll cut them some slack as last week they were delivering things faster than usual. I suppose with an extra push before the Jubilee weekend, they'd have their rewards.

Nah, that's not it. It may have been a Djinn creature, though.
Hm, that's the only one I can think of. I think they changed the image of that card, so here's a link to the image I had in mind: http://static.starcitygames.com/sales/cardscans/MAGCED/maham oti_djinn.jpg

A-ha! I found the one:

Let me guess, your expactations are really low? Trust me, I know exactly how you feel. Sadly, "always expect the unexpected" is the only advice I can give you here.

And even then I get some hunches of something happening. 2009 is a great example with the one where we never got off. I recalled her asking me if I had any love interest in her and that was a month or two after originally meeting her. I wasn't sure at the time but a few months later, a huger hint was dropped when during an MSN convo, a friend of mine said "You should have dated Andy!" Then I knew of the possibility.

Again: Don't sleep on trains unless it's going to a straight destination. Dosing off while riding a train to London is fine with me.
If you always have to get off at the same stations for a few years, you kind of condition yourself during that time. So dozing off is a good way to pass some time, once you are conditioned enough, heh.

It's easier to sleep on a coach. More time to catch sleep there,

Well, on the train to London from Kidderminster, I managed to get about an hour's sleep, but the rest was spent in Mongolia, with the Ghengis Khan trilogy. A much more productive use of my time, I felt :P

I don't know, I hardly ever ride a coach. They are just not that common here. Must have something to do with the German Federal Railways having some sort of exclusive right to connect cities with each other for public transport. But what I heard last year is, that some companies complained about this "exclusive right". So maybe we too will have coaches connecting larger cities with each other in the near future.

Too bad. I declared my feelings to a girl once, but she already was in a relationship. Then she and her bf broke up, so of course I was hopeful, but they got back together. Took me over a year to get over this. :(

Import them from Thailand - the games themselves are in Thai, but they come with instructions to translate them. The games are half the price and on eBay, you can buy them with little-to-no postage costs.

Only problem is, that you run into bootlegs more often than not when you shop there. Especially with Nintendo Games. :P

But seriously, why should I buy a game for 60 Euros from amazon, when I can import it from the UK for 20 Pounds?

Yeah, I see what you mean. I was lucky enough that the best friend of my best friends gf at that time (does that make any sense? lol) was single as well. And I guess you know how friends can be sometimes... well, turned out that I had a huge interest in that person as well. :)

That's bad...

Believe it or not, that's actually good. I instigated the end of this relationship, this one was too clingy and kept flip-flopping between "I love you" and "I'm not sure this is going to work". She thought I wasn't over Bex, which I believe is truly not the case, as it's been over a year now and I feel vindicated when after pulling the trigger, she kept coming back with "you've treated me like shit" and "I'm going to end it all"

Can't be doing with emotional blackmail. As Murtaugh says, "I'm too old for this shit."

I usually only import from the UK. Games are cheaper and uncut there. Plus, delivery doesn't cost more than the games itself.
Import them from Thailand - the games themselves are in Thai, but they come with instructions to translate them. The games are half the price and on eBay, you can buy them with little-to-no postage costs.
Only problem is, that you run into bootlegs more often than not when you shop there. Especially with Nintendo Games. :P

Well, the copy of Blood Bowl I purchased was fine. I checked it all out and I was given hours of guilt free pumelling of players, in an attempt to look like Americal Football. Wonderful.

But seriously, why should I buy a game for 60 Euros from amazon, when I can import it from the UK for 20 Pounds?

Good point, well made

Surely you have a better idea on things than I do.

In other, happier, stattier news, I am now 95th on the all time most experienced list, thanks to me Cooping Cesar-Barba. ornery is now my next victim, at only 20 points ahead of me.

Now that's some good progress.

Sorry to hear about your job woes...

What can I do now? Oh right, allow the Job Centre and scumbag employers to keep walking over me.

It'll be a while before I can bring up something to have that said about.

Luckily for all of us, german legislation isn't worth much in other countries. :P

And hopefully we keep it that way just so the idiots that run your country keep overlooking loopholes.

I'm long past that but the fact that it's been the last thing happening to me doesn't really help a lot.
Yeah, I see what you mean. I was lucky enough that the best friend of my best friends gf at that time (does that make any sense? lol) was single as well. And I guess you know how friends can be sometimes... well, turned out that I had a huge interest in that person as well. :)

Where I stand right now, yeah.... At times I feel I've been living in the wrong place all along.

I'm going to bet that I sign back on to the Job Centre on Tuesday.
Too bad. :(

And guess who I was meant to see? Goddamn Megadeth!

That's pretty fast, did you say it back?

Some bootlegs are pretty well made. Not easy to distinguish from the real games.

Well, it's a free market. Not much they can do about it... except for, stopping with this bullshit of "censoring" games and movies. If the label says: "18 and above" then I want to see the goddamn moive, and not some butchered and censored version.

I'm long past that but the fact that it's been the last thing happening to me doesn't really help a lot.

I really don't know why people can't say "I love you" anymore. I thought it was just a cliché in US sitcoms... but apparantly it also happens in real life. Why are you in a relationship with someone if you don't love that someone? Going out, having fun together, having SEX together... but you cannot say THREE SIMPLE WORDS? I mean, you are already FUCKING this person (literally), but you CANNOT say "I love you", because "it's too fast"? Sorry, but... "I don't want to live on this planet anymore".
