Nope. He's constantly looking for a way to "put out his inner fire".

It happens. So long as we make amends, all shall be forgiven.

But if life gets too busy to have any time for the BBS, that also happens. Right now I still have spare time but when I get my girlfriend wanting to see me the following day, then I've got even less free time. At this time we cannot go all the way to see each other as travel expenses will completely demolish our money.

My main job was meant to attend the Facebook page for the store for any incoming messages/comments about any queries but I ended up sorted out all the shelves for the shop.

That's great that the owner likes you; maybe you could get a (paying) job there!

She has mentioned there is a possibility of hiring someone when the business develops. She wants the shop to expand to a comic and video game cafe but that's a long way off for her finances.

I'm glad it was discussed about before we all jumped ahead and had it on board. I didn't mind the idea at first but if it meant to restrict it to supporters only, I become less fond of it.
The more I think about it, the more I think things should just say the way they are now. I'll stick around to see what happens either way, though. ;)

I'm glad we all discussed about it. More and more the doubtful comments showed up and I wanted to reach out to them.

You need to be me, that's all. :P
Does that include the dragon obsession? :P

Yes!

Yeah, about that... I think what might be best to do is sort out the update on Sunday and alongside type up the step by step guide. However, if Sunday plans do suddenly change like seeing my girlfriend, then it could become more of a task at hand.
I think putting together a list of instructions while making the update would be the most thorough way of doing it. I'm going to need a walkthrough on the whole process anyway; expect a few questions from me along the way, too. ;)

Yeah, doing it the first time can be tough. I was like that as well when I took over from gfox. Hell, I didn't have my own instruction manual to do it all; I mostly had to work it all out myself. As for my PM inbox, you take up quite a fair amount of space on page 1 but then again, I keep deleting one kid's PMs I get. I don't even read what he says; just delete immediately so thankfully my inbox isn't clogged up with his crap.

That sounds like a pretty cool place to work. I would definitely ask to do more volunteer work there in the future; try and make yourself a shoe in for that future job opening. ;)

Do you know if this is happening, or is it still just in the "idea" stage? All I know is that Tom seemed pretty fond of the idea when it was first mentioned. My excitement has for some reason turned to indifference these last few days.

Yes!

Not sure I could pull that off as well as you, though. :P

Yeah, he's like nature in human form... That almost makes the bird shit acceptable. Almost.

I doubt we'll see him again in the next two movies.

Yeah, but it's a french cartoon, so there have to be some french videos out there. I really would like to hear the original voices.
Why are the originals so hard to find? I think Grisu's voice sounds fine in the German version, anyway.

Yes, his german voice is awesome. As I've said, the guy who did the voice is a well known voice actor now, he dubs Ben Stiller, for example. Even the english wikipedia has an article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oliver_Rohrbeck

I see, you understand. Bahamut on the other hand... :P

Well, I just finished the 6th season of The X-Files, so only 3 more to go. Maybe I will also get the two movies on DVD. If only I could get my hands on the spin off "The Lone Gunmen". Critics praised that spin off, but it only had like one season.

Driven had not been used yet. Though I suppose I won, if repeating a song is grounds for forfeit. (For What It's Worth, Lessons, Limelight and Circumstances were all used before.) I don't really care about that, though.

Fuck.

Here's the list of songs each of us has used so far.
76 total songs used

Oh, and my pun for the day:

Wow, that could leave the contest in Limbo. For What It's Worth, I'm carrying on, in case we aren't playing that rule!
I want you to know that you can Take A Friend in me, but that doesn't change that fact that it's still my Mission to keep pouring on Rush puns Hand Over Fist. Can't you see the High Water rising? I hope you're still In The Mood, because I'm beginning to sense that the Epilogue isn't too far off now...

Well, with that Discovery, I really should Carve Away The Stone and climb into my hole. Would you care to sing the Soliloquy?

I see. Clearly, I had forgotten that sort of 70 per day pace that you were knocking out at will...
I had started working by then. My pace from May to around the end of July 2008 was scratching 100/day. Impossible to manage these days, though I would be if the Portal would allow it.

A massive if, I'm afraid.

I've been talking about meeting an old flame in Leicester, but it would be just that - casual, nothing serious and perhaps a chance to catch up on old times. God, I sound like I'm going through a midlife crisis...

A couple of achievements I didn't even notice!

I ranked up to Sergeant Major, got 13,000 exp and have 10,000 medals from 1,500 games. Plus 1*10^0 submissions.
I used to have over 10,000 medals, but with the glitch I lost a thousand of them. Luckily it's fixed.

Yes, that's my main beef; when they were captured by the Goblins. I actually didn't mind the comedic nature of the Goblin King, with his grotesquely sagging jowls. It was the general sillyness of their escape, culminating with the Goblin King saying: "That'll do!" in response to Gandalf slashing his gut. HIS STINKING, STEAMING GUTS SHOULD HAVE SPILLED ALL OVER THE FLOOR, DAMMIT!! (ok, maybe that's a little much) That was just a wtf moment for me, anyway. :P

Oh yeah I remember that bit. During that split second of silence that fell before the joke I was thinking "Nah they can't make this THAT silly..." and then they did. It was a bit of a wtf moment for me too.

Well the additions they made to the original story were pretty good scenes at least. Like all the extra stuff with Radagast and the scene at Rivendell with Saruman. I'm curious about how they're going to work out the side plot with the Necromancer.
Should be interesting. I also like how they left us hanging with Smaug's appearance. Hopefully we'll get to see him in his entirety in the next movie. :P

Yeah I agree. I liked how they kept his appearance a bit of a mystery.

As for the Necromancer, my only concern with him is that he might take the wind out of Smaug's sails as the main villain. I just hope they'll keep it more as a sideplot and still keep Smaug as the major bad guy they have to beat.

Now that I take a good look at it again, it does look more like bird shit :p

Yes. We wheren't that far away leveling wise from each other anyway. Everytime you leveled up, I knew that I was a few weeks away from leveling up as well. But now, we almost level up on the same day.

I guess things have reversed now.

Fine if you haven't read The Hobbit, but even from the film itself it becomes obvious that it's a prequel to The Lord of the Rings.

I always imagined that part to be a bit silly. Like, how would Gollum even consider that to be a proper riddle? However, they made it fairly believable in the film.
Heh, he doesn't consider it to be a proper riddle, that's the whole point. ^^

Well if I remember correctly, he says something like: "Not fair!" but I don't hear him mentioning it's against the rules or that it isn't a riddle. In fact, he even starts trying to guess it.

They even cut a lot of parts of the LotR just to keep it all within 3 hour portions.
Yes, that's why you just have to get the extended versions. It's really worth it!

Yeah I would still like to get my hands on them someday. I believe we do have the films on DVD, but I don't think they contain many extras.

But oh well. It seems to be hip nowadays to split books in as many films as they think they can get away with.
At least the movies aren't as shitty as Episode I - III. I watched Episode I in the movies, the other two, I only watched parts of III, when it was on the TV. And I really can't bring myself to watch Episode II...
It's like "What was he thinking?!"

You're talking about Star Wars, right?

Of the three prequels, Episode III was the best one by far in my opinion. Episode I was okay (though it seems to be disliked the most by fans) and Episode II was absolutely dreadful if you ask me.

Exactly. There's a time and place for comic relief -that wasn't one of them.

Yeah I agree. I liked how they kept his appearance a bit of a mystery.

As for the Necromancer, my only concern with him is that he might take the wind out of Smaug's sails as the main villain. I just hope they'll keep it more as a sideplot and still keep Smaug as the major bad guy they have to beat.

I never really considered that... I'm honestly surprised at how much attention the Necromancer received in the movie, considering it was just more of a plot device in the book, foreshadowing Sauron's rise in LOTR. It'll be interesting to see how it develops, anyway.

I'm sure he smells pretty bad too :p

I bet he has a pleasant sent, like a pine forest in springtime. lmao

It's awesome until you realize that the next 20 Levels take about the same time to attain as the first 40 Levels. Climbing from Level 40 to Level 50 is super slow going. I'm Level 51 and still have 2 years, 11 months of not missing any votes to reach that much desired Level 60.

I'm amazed I've yet to talk about this here. On Wednesday, I saw The Room in Liverpool's indie cinema and Tommy Wiseau was there to meet the fan as well as signing autographs and even taking pictures. To have myself a picture with Tommy Wiseau, Greg Sestero and my friends is a great honour.

However, then came a crisis. After leaving the cinema, I realised one of my coat pockets felt a bit empty and then realised that my iPod slipped out of the pocket. I had to speak to reception about lost property and sadly had to wait until tomorrow morning to hear if it was found. I was ready to prepare the worst and spend over 200 for a new iPod considering one of the last things you'd expect to get back after losing it somewhere is an iPod. Much to my surprise, the iPod was found and the cinema phoned up informing me they do have it. That was a really close one and next time, I shouldn't expect to be so lucky. To make sure this doesn't happen again, I now have a new coat with zipped pockets and not crappy buttoned pockets.

Hopefully she'll be in touch.

She will but more in the sense of myself seeing her a week tomorrow for my second day of voluntary work there. I just wonder how tidy the shelves have been since I was last there.

I believe it's still the idea stage for now. It's not something to rush into straight away, especially when we've been discussing the cons about it.
My gut tells me it's not going to happen, but we'll see, I guess.

Yeah, the idea feels a little shot down now. Still, happy to discuss it and at least it wasn't an utterly dumb idea. One I heard about replacing the $100 prize draw with bonus EXP to a random user made me want to throw up.

I ought to... I was hoping he'd get the message by not that I really don't like him.
Block that bitch! ;P

I suppose it's a matter of time then. Maybe next time...

I agree. That said, the auras are better looking for the current icons. Pink isn't such an eyesore now and purple aura is a welcome addition. Teal aura for writer/reader kinda blends in with game aura but I suppose I can live with it.

I'm slowly but surely going through season two of Batman: The Animated Series.
Nothing beats the TV series with Adam West!

I'd say the animated series is where it was best at. Maybe we can both agree that TAS surpasses all the films.

I always thought level 42 was the halfway point considering you need 19,000 something EXP and 38,000 something EXP for level 60. At least I'm beyond 3/4 way mark to level 60. It's actually gonna be a sad feeling reaching the final level and knowing there won't be more to obtain. Ah well, good times have gotta come to an end, I guess.

Fine if you haven't read The Hobbit, but even from the film itself it becomes obvious that it's a prequel to The Lord of the Rings.

Yes. Also, how can you miss all the talk going on, that Jackson is now brining THE PREQUEL to the cinemas now?

I always imagined that part to be a bit silly. Like, how would Gollum even consider that to be a proper riddle? However, they made it fairly believable in the film.

Yes, he complains about it but Bilbo insists, so Gollum doesn't really have a choice.

I thought this part was adapted well in the movie. Bilbo even does fiddle around with the ring before he asks that question, just as it is described in the book.

Yeah I would still like to get my hands on them someday. I believe we do have the films on DVD, but I don't think they contain many extras.

DVD. LOL! :P
I have bought the BluRay-Box on the last Amazon "Cyber Monday". It was money well spent, since the additional scenes add so much more value to the movies... the only thing that pisses me off slighty is that there are sometiems different camera angles for the same scenes in both versions. ^^

But oh well. It seems to be hip nowadays to split books in as many films as they think they can get away with.
