I'm sure most of you have noticed the little notice suggesting people go play LJ's Farmville ripoff (PS, how about notifications instead, LJ?).

I'll give that notice one thing. It's really funny to get on character journals. Especially if I'm logged in as the Warden. I'm sure everyone in Glaxcin would like it if he did go play Farmville.

Today I discovered that my Mario Kart skillz translate into Mass Effect. Which is to say I repeatedly drove the Mako into lava. And then there was the time I managed to flip it over and it got stuck on its back like a turtle and I couldn't get it back upright.

After that, I managed to get to the next part of the plot. It turns out I'm even worse at aiming the Mako's gun than I am at aiming Shepard's pistol. I like this game, but I'm really not very good at it. I'm much more suited to games where yous shoot things by selecting "shoot" from a menu and the bad guys wait their turn. :p But despite all this I'm still having fun, so I shall keep going and... hopefully get better at aiming. And turn the combat difficulty down to Casual. :p

Speaking of games where I don't have to aim and the enemies wait their turn... I finally realized that the reason I felt the urge to play Avernum this weekend is probably that this week's Glaxcin post uses most of the low level Avernum enemies. THere aren't any brigands and Nephilim, since human enemies don't really fit the tone and Nephilim are a bit too distinctive, but there are goblins, rodents of unusual size, giant spiders and dungeon bats. :p

The fact that the goblins are not in fact hostile has absolutely nothing to do with any webcomic, I don't know where you would get such a notion. :p

Of course, I wasn't actually going up against any of the low level monsters, since I'm at the point of the game where a lot of the wandering monsters will result in a popup message basically saying that they went "Oh, it's you, nevermind!" We call these smart wandering monsters. :p

So that offer of cookies in exchange for apping Simon Tam at [livejournal.com profile] glaxcinprison? Totally still stands. I seem to have written myself into a playercesty corner where Wash and Martha have to interact that I totally wouldn't be in if we had a Simon. :p

Cookies. Chemists are excellent bakers, btw. :p

Sometimes Glaxcin makes me type really weird things. Like tonight. Specifically "Dammit, I'm trying to turn Bill into a donkey and he just keeps HUGGING!"

I really never expected to type that. Ever.

Sometimes I end up making very bizarre phone calls. Like today's memorable "Honey, could you please bring me a pair of pants?"

My vacuum pump leaked. Changing the pump oil is always a messy business, so I was wearing my labcoat. Unfortunately, it only goes to my knees. I didn't notice the leak at first when I was moving the pump up onto a stool so I could drain it and I got oil all down my pant leg. It was... icky. :p

On an unrelated note, my sister has figured out what Glaxcin needs. It needs the doctor from Voyager! Because he doesn't need to eat!

Also unrelated, it's a bit chilly today. The nearest warm thing I could grab to throw on was... a White Mage cloak. I'm not sure what that says about me. But I'm typing this while wearing a cloak. :p

Thanks to the current event, I have learned that it is much easier to write about two characters having sex using only song lyrics for dialogue than it is to write about a doctor treating head injuries.

Also, Martha saying "Gonna buy you barley, carrots and pertaters" is one of the better images of my life. Don't forget to hear "pertaters" in her accent! (There... aren't that many songs about vegetables, okay? :p)

Hey... anyone want to be Simon Tam? We could really use one over at [livejournal.com profile] glaxcinprison. River just filled out a pscyh survey with almost every answer being "I want my brother back." And Martha and Cottle could use all the help they can get. Not to mention Tess and I would find it useful to have a doctor we can use when two of our characters are together. :p So really, we want Simon mostest, but any doctor would be awesome. How about Ton? Hobbie would love to have Ton around!

Also, I am not ashamed to beg. Pleeeeeeease? There is a time honoured Glaxcin tradition of bribing people to pick up characters using cookies. I will mail you cookies if you app Simon.

See the plushie? That's how determined we are to get a Simon.

Me: She's a military officer who's been having a hard time with it all :p
Kirana: ah
Kirana: just the type to be a bill baby

Tess: I can't believe I created a doomship :-p
Tess: out of a CRACK PAIRING

Note: Sassy is "Tough Six", a Cylon prostitute from The Plan who I play in Glaxcin. And this conversation occurred while I was taking supper out of the oven. :p

Me: I want the Cylon toaster. I could make a whole army of Centurion toast and take over Galactica!
Ryan: Saaaaaaassy, priorities.
Me: Sex?
Ryan: EXACTLY! I DO wonder what normal couples talk about.

It's an excellent question. :p

Wash needs to stop being so happy. It's making me sad!

Man, the RP memes are out in force today. Have another one from [livejournal.com profile] prix_etoile!

RP journals are awesome )

It's perfectly normal to sit on the floor and try to stand up without moving one foot if you're RPing as Hobbie, right?

Speaking of which, I'm pretty sure I'm committing some sort of nerd sacrilege by playing a Star Wars character AND a Star Trek character. I can't help it though! Who could resist Quark?

Outside of RP, my week has been the thrilling word of proofreading Laura's thesis so she can submit tomorrow morning. And graduate and rent me her townhouse. The things I will do to get out of this hellpit.

Half a day tomorrow and then off to FanExpo! Yay!

Ugh, just remembered to pay my tuition so I can get my bus pass tomorrow. Now I have no money. :p Good thing I get paid tomorrow. :p

How I Met Your Mother made me crave cupcakes. So today I... made cupcakes. This would be brilliant except for the part where it was thirty eight degrees with the humidity and thus having the oven on was an exceedingly poor idea.

But I can has cupcakes once I make frosting! And that's the important part.

Also been watching DS9 because I'm kinda sorta maybe probably gonna app Quark in Glaxcin. :p

Guys, did you know Molly Hayes has led an eventful life? :p

I just apped her at [livejournal.com profile] glaxcinprison. Her history wound up being 1183 words. This is SLIGHTLY insane, given that PAPADAMA'S history was only around 900. And Molly is TWELVE. That is an impressive bit of having history there. :p

I get to spend Canada Day in Ottawa. Since my grandparents rather ought to meet Ryan. Go me. :p

Okay, for the record, Head Bill strongly desires to never get out of prison after seeing last night's episode. :p

Yesterday there was... SURPRISE PROCTORING! Kim came up to the lab (shocking in and of itself :p) and said that she'd accidentally double booked herself and needed a proctor... now. :p The nice thing was, it was a one student exam (one of the polymer kids had ANOTHER exam at the same time as the actual polymer exam), and I was allowed to read, work and listen to music. Definitely worse ways to take care of proctoring duties. :p
