I hate when suddenly it's late and I realize my entire night just got wasted doing nothing. >__<* There was a meeting in the Matrix, which ended up being kind of circular and pointless, and I think I watched more of the tv I'd left on than the computer screen, though I did read everything that was said.

Wow...people sure are speshul. And I do mean in that particular spelling. The other day when I was running around, just trying to get a feel for the game and all, a guy randomly approached me and "offered" several items of clothing. It's like a trade, only I didn't have to give anything in return. I was very, "..buhwha?" but I took some and after that, I think he did say hello (or some form of it, perhaps "hey") and then asked, "do u have a bf". No question mark, and of course, those fantastic abbreviations to which my mind said, "...?" before translating. Now, I was polite and thanked him for the clothes, making a remark of, "Didn't want to sell them?" so as to maybe convey my confusion as to why I was just given them out of the blue, and he asks if I want to run a mission. While still trying to figure out what the heck to do with this guy, he then returns to his original subject and says, "do u want one". I finally told him no thanks and escaped running a mission with him on account of wanting to run some solo.

But the whole point of this is basically just to say that wow...people are speshul. Why would you walk up to a character who's just standing there (and as Leslie pointed out, who you honestly don't know the gender of, despite the female appearance), and be like, "Here, have some clothes. Hey, got a boyfriend? Want one? I can help you out..." Okay, so he didn't say that last bit, but he might as well have. ::rolls eyes:: Oi...

Let's see, work went okay and then on the way home, I got the idea stuck in my head that it would be really cool (albeit pretty unlikely) if I came home and my manga had arrived. Well lo and behold, they had, and there was much rejoicing. The DMC3 is nothing like I'd hoped, with only a very small confrontation between the brothers (as the cover led me to believe there would be) in the end, but on the second run through, I enjoyed it a little more so hopefully it will grow on me rather like the first one did. The other two manga I'd ordered were enjoyable but sadly, I'd read most of them in those monthly magazine things so while I'm happy to own them, it wasn't like I had a bunch of new stuff to read suddenly. Sadness abounds. Oh well, I've still got The Talisman and a million of those Mary Russell books from Andie.

I'm chilling at Frank and Kathleen's now. I'm watching their house and Max as well as Dad's house and Aja this week. Can you handle it??! Hopefully I can. ^__^; Max says hello to everyone, by the way. Having to watch both houses and animals at the same time, though, means I have to run back and forth between the two houses, as I did just now to make sure the dog had one last chance to go out. It's kind of irritating but I don't have much of a choice and at least the houses are about a two minute drive apart.

Wow...that little blurb about MxO made me want to play again. ~__~ Meh. Maybe I can run one quick mission without dying.

[edit: 1:34 am] Ran some missions, got some XP, met Persephone and bit her face, got killed by nasty peoples, re-read some of DMC3 manga with dictionary, enjoyed muchly. Time for sleep now.

I was playing an online game once and some dude followed me around for a little while asking if I wanted to get married...these are the joys of being actual females playing female characters I suppose

But I wonder how these guys can figure with such impunity that you actually are a girl, given that most MMO players are guys...

I suppose they just take a stab in the dark...and sometimes they get lucky and find an actual woman.
I know that female characters can get stuff for free often, just by asking, I suppose some guys that play MMOs are just desperate...I could see it in any case

Yeah, that meeting was for shit. Sorry I told you to come, I thought it'd be something more worthwhile than Shooter blathering about enemies and Cerhob acting more and more like a Zionist every day. >___< You should've just gone on ahead to your house.

Leave the Persephone face-biting to me. :3

I'll hopefully be able to get on tonight and run missions with you - I want to rack up XP myself, since we've got that 50% increase. At least the meeting was good for informing us of that.

No apology necessary, as you couldn't have known it'd be like that. And I thought about running to take care of the dog during the "meeting" but didn't want to miss anything important. ~__~ Of course, then I was peeved because we couldn't run any missions. Meh.

50% increase? Is that one of the things that went completely over my head during all the talk of PVP issues? O_o? Well I work until 5:45 and then I might try to mow the lawn when I get home (it's getting to a jungle-like state), so I'll be getting on later in the evening as well. Hope to see you~ <3

oh the joys of spoilers... -_-
Anyway, have you read chapter 68 of book 7 yet, or are you refering to finding that chapter and some of the previous ones? I have them all on my pc, so if you need them, let me know and I can e-mail it to you or something.

From what I can tell, in most online games people (read as "those 16 and younger") assume that you are the gender that you play. Even though in the studies I have seen, it has been upwards of 70+% of female characters are actually male.
I may be the unusual one here but when I play, I play in character, so the RL person doesn't matter. Of course, everything I do stays in game, and there isn't anything over a pg rating done. (else kate would kill me, but not really)

Ugh. Spoiler, yes. I should have thought that one through, but it was the first thing I did when I woke up. My apologies to all. I'll repost my comment spoiler-friendly.

The last of Death Note I read was chapter 59, sirrah.

Indeed, though I have never played a character who would solicit complete strangers with proposals of dating... at least, not so uncouthly. It would be just plain couth.

(reposted, pandakishimete's thread was in reply to this one)

Tis times like this that I'm glad that we are not any of those "speshul" ones, eh? Yes? High five? ^^

Have you heard anything about the continuation of Death Note? I lost that website and now have no idea whether or not SPOILERS! Anyway, back to your regularly scheduled font color.

Definite high five!! ^__^/ Leslie said that the clothes-giving thing is actually quite common in the game, so we shall have to see. Last night, during the meeting, I got the equivalent of a private IM (it's a "whisper" in the Matrix) just saying "hey" from the same guy, but I ignored it because I was didn't want to be asked, "do u want a bf?" again. >__>;

Yes I have, actually.

The website with the scanlations is http://manga.anime-source.com, if you're still interested, or want to see more clearly what I just described. I don't have the direct link, but I'm sure it's not too hard to find where they're manga scanlations are and then Death Note.

Ah, thank you, milady! I am very grateful. ^^

Back to Death Note spoiler discussion:

Ugh, "do you want a bf?" Fie on that. They should try that on a stranger in the real world and end up with some complete psychopath. I follow a "let's be friends first" policy.
