I lost my brain.

Well, close enough. My notebook with notes on things I need to do/have done, etc, is packed up. And I have this nagging certainty that there's still somebody I meant to invite into Free Space and haven't managed to, for one reason or another, and said notebook is where I put down who I've pestered. And I don't want to go around everybody I know going "Hey, did I bother you about Free Space yet?" because most of them will be all "Yes, and I said no last time too."

So, er... if I haven't invited you into Free Space, and the idea of sci-fi collaborative writing is something you find interesting, poke me, would you? #freespace on irc, it's an open channel, so you can wander in. I try to be in there all the time, but with apartment hunting and things, I'm not always awake in there.

ARGH!

I don't wait well. I really don't. I HATE getting the "we'll call you back" thing because I don't trust it. I don't want something important to me to be in the hands of somebody who may or may not care at all.

And I just plain hate waiting. If I know WHEN something is going to happen, fine, I'll do something that fills that ammount of time. But this "they could call in two seconds, they could call tomorow" thing is driving me freaking insane! *growls*

I am victorious!

I escaped from the Dungeon of Bladespark!

I killed Ampersand the leprechaun, Techmav the mind flayer, Maritzac the minotaur, Haldaloke the kobold, Susie Que the giant spider and Houseava the kobold.

I looted the Dagger of Cowboy Bebop, the Sceptre of Ursulav, the Amulet of Goth, the Armour of Religion, the Axe of Drawing, the Wand of Evanescence, the Shield of Lin Chan, a Figurine of Sarelian, the Amulet of God, a Figurine of Loweko, a Figurine of Kira Chan, the Wand of Aoanla, the Wand of Goth, the Amulet of Tibialmusician, the Wand of Artwork, the Armour of Get Medieval, a Figurine of Sulcharae, the Crown of Malakim2099, the Sceptre of Artwork and 90 gold pieces.

Score: 490

And this thing is way too much fun. And very surreal at times. (Particularly my dungeon. Where else can you find a dagger of Cowboy Bebop and an Amulet of God?) Just be wary, if you care to play, for the server is a bit overloaded, unfortunately. (I beat the dungeon of Jordanis as well. Got about the same score there, less loot but more kills. His seemed to have weaker monsters.)

P.S Silver Adept: your dungeon is HUGE, and full of stuff! I scored 613 in there. It's also full of critters, I ran away from a dragon, four or five arch-fiends or whatever those are, and a heap of other stuff, but I killed five rats. Wheee!

Gryphon!

Well, I decided what the heck and why not. I'm in the mood to paint stuff just now, I have gryphons, I need money, so...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290002147349

I'm offering the choice of my blue, orange, or red eyed gryphons, (just one,) with custom paint job by me! Now, let's see if I get any takers... *crosses fingers*

(I feel weird doing this, as I know there are plenty of better painters out there. But then again, there are plenty of worse, so I guess I'm allowed. Or something.)

Redefining things!

Don't you love it when people seem to need to redefine words? Like that "Isn't it Ironic" song with virtually no irony in it anywhere? Well, somebody who seems to be thinking of bidding on my custom suit auction has his own definition of arrogance. That's the only explanation I can come up with to explain this little exchange.

Him: "I need a custom bear suit (mascotstyle, not realistic). I am 6'4 tall and I freely admit that I cannot draw. If I give you my sizes, can you design it and give me a quote for it?

thanks in advance,
Brian
"

Me: "It's definitely possible for me to do so!

Do note, however, that this auction IS around my usual price range,as far as the reserve and buy now price, so don't expect to get a cheaper deal by getting a quote this way rather than just bidding, since such a designed and custom built suit is exactly what the auction is for.
"

Him: "I didn't ask if I can get it cheaper. I undestand that the time an effort of quality costume is a premium.

Your relpy is entirly arrogant... good luck with your attitude in the future.
"

Me: ??????????!

I then responded: "My apologies if I appeared arrogant. I can't figure out exactly what is arrogant there. I stated that my prices are in the same range as the price of this auction. This is a statement of fact. And as it is 100% against ebay's terms andpolicies to conclude a deal outside of their auction system, there's nothing else I could say in response to your question.

If you're intersted bid, if you're not, don't, and if you can't deal with my supposed arrogance, I suppose you'll have to look elsewhere.
"

*chuckles* Good thing I'm not all that desperate for business. But dang! That was just... totally out of the blue. Arrogant? Because I wanted to make sure he knew that he wasn't going to get a cheaper suit? WTF?

(P.S. Oh e-bay guru, DOES that sound like an attempt to conclude a deal outside of e-bay? Because this actually has me in the mood to smack this guy down a bit more, and if you think it is, well... I can most certainly report it as such.)

Loweko? After easily surviving my own, JJ's and Silver Adept's, without ever having been in serious danger of dying, YOUR lj dungeon has killed me twice! And I still haven't beat it! It is freaking hard!
