Ehh, I don't like overlong board games. I only go as far as Monopoly, really.I haven't played Monopoly for years. Perhaps I should dig the old girl out?
I last played it last year at a friend's house. I made a boss move by double rolling into Park Lane and then rolling snake eyes into Mayfair. I was able to buy both properties but it sadly didn't make me win the game. Still, gotta love moments like them.
I'm looking at actually buying a house in Worcester, which is about 10-15 miles from home. Maybe that will be some way of turning my relationship fortunes around?
Now that boosts your first impression a lot. I'll admit that my first impressions are horribly lacking but if they're quite a distance away, hopefully just saying I'm willing to travel far just for them will get them interested in me. I do have my determinations but they're not being put into use. Yet. Just need to find that right one who will say yes to me.
Yeah, you have a point there, although one could still find the name of my ex. At least I don't wave around the name of family and friends on the internet. Perhaps you know my sister's name but that was only because my tongue slipped at the time. Although, I think you're trustworthy enough to know her name.I can't remember it, don't worry, your secret is safe with me :P
Hah, I suppose it's all good then. Maybe at the next NG meet we'll both go to I may tell you my ex's name. :P

Heh, that is one hell of a long response but at least they did reach out to her after a while. If she wasn't working at all, that would have been a miracle.True that. I much rather hear back from a job than not hearing back. Even if it is a negative response.
I generally don't like negative responses but better that than no response at all. At least that shows acknowledgement, unless they start doing bot replies. I wouldn't be surprised if that was a thing for some employers.
True, I've not gone CV sending sprees like that and I'd like to do it some more soon. For now some job opportunities have appeared so while I'm going to hear out from them, I'll still keep applying to other places. Just gotta keep all those options open.Yeah, that's what I always did as well: As long as I don't have a job, I keep applying, even if some opportunities open up.
I think this week has been a little slow but maybe bank holiday has made a bit of an impact. New job lists were lacking on Monday and it hasn't been all that strong this week. I've got some things to do earlier on in the week but hopefully I can still mass apply, even though I could be due for a new job on 20th May. However, that job is only 16 hours a week and temporary or 6 months so I need something with more hours as well as a permanent role but what I should be getting is good enough.
Just sell those FF games and then it's no longer an issue. :DSorry, that is not an option. :/
But the new games are crap. Why even bother having them lying around?
Sorry man but NG has been low priority for most of my internet time now. The only priority now is to pick up the EXP at the start of the day.I understand that.
Yep. Been watching an awful lot of Adventure Time lately which is another factor for focusing on something that isn't Newgrounds. However, I'm all caught up with that show now so it's a matter of finding something else to watch. I've been trying Beavis and Butthead but I don't like the padding with the music videos and if you take them out, you're only getting 3-4 minute episodes.
I am tempted to make a new Last.fm but I don't want to throw 7 years of my music history away like that. They'll have to make the option to change names sooner or later.Maybe they are evil enough not to do it?
Perhaps they are. Fuck.

And we do have different things to talk about now. Me and Haggard were wondering about the universe. :DA little philosophizing never hurts to culture the place up a bit. :P
Can't say I'm much of a philosophist but sometimes I'll have my fun but some of the thoughts I can produce are either amateur or potentially scary. I dunno, read up my thoughts on lifeforms' perspective on the planet earth from mine and Haggard's posts from late March (I think it was around then).
At that bar, not a chance. The music will be all loud to the extreme so no chance to be singing there on mic.Aw. :(
Sometimes I feel like I go to the wrong places but I still enjoy going there whenever possible. Hard to say if it's anytime soon, though. Next time my sister might be up here is for my birthday and I'm considering a pub crawl in Liverpool. However, I do have a few issues with sorting that out. My main problem right now is deciding who I feel confident with inviting. After some rough patches last week, some people I'm not so sure about now but there's a bit of a chain reaction if I invite person A but not person B.
Although, I much prefer Gangnam Style as a song over Harlem Shake.Gangnam style irritated me, but at least it was pretty catchy. This Harlem Shake BS is just fucking stupid. Hopefully there'll be a new fad song this time next month to take its place?
I'm sure it's died off now. I know the Gangnam Style man released a new single but I can't even remember what it sounds like now. Gangnam Style will be his one hit wonder and nothing else good will come up from his career.
I went ahead and picked up Tomb Raider.I haven't played either in those series, so I can't say I have much of an opinion. Have you played any of the Elder Scrolls games? Skyrim's got more dragons than I for one can handle, so you very well may enjoy it. (Though you are fighting them/absorbing their souls, so...) ;)
Oh fuck yeah, Elder Scrolls. Mind you, I've not played the first two and I have no intentions to play them at all. I'd enjoy Morrowind more if it weren't for the shitty combat system. Oblivion and Skyrim are more like it for me.
As for holidays, I'd like to do something again but again, I NEED A FUCKING JOB! I'm gonna have to pass down the trip to Spain with my parents due to money limitations.That sucks. Well, here's to hoping we both find employment soon... Have you done any more work at that game shop you were talking about before?
Oh yeah, I've done more voluntary work for the place. They even have a separate store for their comic books so last Monday found me going back and forth with their two stores to make sure at least someone is attending them. There are some new job opportunities coming up but I'm taking caution for now. It could be that they won't give me the job at all, even though they're suggesting they will employ me on the 20th.
