What sucks most is that I have a negative cash flow right now counting all bills, so next month's rent is uncertain. His brother will likely be covering for his first share of bills, since I can't. Meanwhile I have to put up with a, well let's be honest here, a lazy slob with bad breath, only occasionally changed shirt, an ashy face, untrimmed beard, uncombed hair, a slouch, no interesting conversation, and a horrible sense of entitlement. I can't eat ice cream without him asking if there's enough for two, and ice cream is the last thing this guy needs.

I think I just became a parent again. I might just put away WoW for a month or two and cut off the internet until collective shit is together.

Wow...

"Sure there's enough ice cream for two, that's why I'm having a double helping!"

Just wow.

@Amirya: You live in a weird town populated by weird people with weird thoughts.


@Kal: You should really tell your Army buddy what you think and ask him to talk with his brother and make him shape up or refuse to have him there.
Unless you enjoy the idea of living with that "thing"

The rent and utilities are still solely in my buddy's name, and he knows how I feel. I can walk away at any time with no financial repercussion, with it all falling onto him, so he's well enough motivated to pressure his brother to grow the hell up and soon.

And yes, I ate all the ice cream.

Amirya wrote:Funny enough re meal.

My roommate and I went to the bank at lunch to do some stuff (we work at the same place). At the place next door, he ordered - I declined since I'm 1) not thrilled with their menu 2) not particularly hungry. He asked me several times to get something, and several times, I declined. "I'm really not hungry."

Neither of us anticipated he'd be getting the stink eye from the staff who, apparently, are of the opinion he's abusing me and refusing to let me eat.

It's the exact same look he got some months ago at a different place, where I opted to order off the kids' menu, and repeatedly refused the upgrade to the meal itself or the drink.

I was mostly wondering if that's a normal thing to assume (me personally, I'd have gone with, "not hungry" or "what's wrong with our food?").


I was thinking it would be something like this. I've worked in a lot of restaurants, and I've found that most people that do tend to be very judgmental about others. I consider this bit of white knighting to be pretty tame, actually. What sucks is there isn't any civilized way to avoid this particular situation that I know of.

Sigh...

*rant*

Guild basically stopped progressing into SoO-h because half of the raiding force froze subscriptions.We are still killing the first 4 heroic bosses with the new guys we recruited but starting progressing again doesn't seem a close objective.

There is nothing to do....The timeless island was a huge failure and so outside the raid there is nothing.Back in vanilla at least i could pvp but i left that behind around the end of BC.....Leveling alts feels as pointless as it felt in cataclysm since i'd have nothing to do with them anyway.So,i end up logging for the 3 hours of raid and nothing more.

While raiding,i still have to deal with my co-tank monk doing 2x my dps...Making me pretty much useless on trash and on any add-fight /Garrosh.And the thing is still bothering me.



And to top it,Blizzard has outdone my *september for WoD* expectation with a *end of september AT BEST*

:(

OR, if their appearance warants it, friends where one has the money to spend the other doesnt (want to).

That is the latest they'll release it (unless they miss the fall target)

It means the xpac is somewhere between 21/9 and 21/12

Our progression boss is 10N Garrosh. We've had several nights of wipes. It is all a part of the learning process. No problem. However we keep running into roster snags. First we lose a tank so I take over. That created a dps hole so we had one of our healers with decent gear swap to dps and then we had to recruit a new healer. New healer is pretty good but a bit lacking in the gear department. We finally get him caught up. Then the dpser in the previous sentance gets butthurt cause she doesn't like wiping to Garrosh all night. She takes another healer with her and now we are missing 2. Old tank comes back in a dps capacity and his gear is fine. So we need yet another healer. Same situation as before. A pretty good player but a bit lacking on the gear department. So we have to get him caught up. I think we are finally in a good position to get some progress on the boss now but we actually have to get to him first. Thok might be the biggest twat of a boss I've ever fought in this game. I'm pretty tired of wiping to him for over an hour only to go and one shot Blackfuse and the Klaxxi.

just think of it this way...it will make that moment you get the kill SOO much sweeter

and if you need inspiration our first and only garrosh kill
came after getting several 30% P2 wipes, and then things just clicked and boom

you will get him down eventually, just need a stable roster for a few nights and a some pulls
(though it is nice to be reminded i am not the only normal raider on these forums lol)

The inability to use the new Wii U Pro Controller for any Wii games (on the Wii U) is dumb... it's bad enough I'm forced to make sure I have a working Wiimote to navigate the menus... but not configuring the hardware to allow the new controllers to register the same as a Classic Controller is just asinine. Seriously... how hard of an update would that really be?

First paladin tier set I would use since Firelands, can't get shoulders or generic token from Garrosh.

Won a Hearthstone ranked match, and instead of showing the victory screens it booted me offline. I think it's the midnight maintenance hitting (yeah, I forgot - the timezone's different and they don't usually do it at midnight). Nothing in game to tell you that the servers were going down, and I'm pretty sure it's not going to record the win. >.<

Guild is up to 7/14 Hc 10 man but have run into a slight tanking issue. About a month ago had 3 MS tanks but have lost one MT to moving flat/outside world and another got kicked tonight for not showing up the past couple of nights (with no warning) and /afking after every single boss kill to smoke. Tonight we used a DPS as OS tank (me) but combined with our top DPS not being about we struggled and only ended up getting first 2 bosses down.

WTB tank for Sunday.
