12:24 am: Two quotes
I'm re-reading Reads (I hate this sentence already). That's the ninth book of Cerebus, incidetaly. Anyway, there's a couple quotes I really like on opposing columns of page 165.

"All stories are true. Every last one of them. All myths, all legends, all fables. If you believe them true, then they are true. If you don't believe them, then all that can be said is that they are true for someone else". - Alan Moore

"The centuries-long process of changing stories (theories) into story elements (verifiable facts) from the vantage point of the the storyteller amounted to a 'reverse alchemy': changing gold into lead. The wider the range of facts which needed to be acommodated to make the story plausible, the less room there was for the storyteller to make his story interesting (either to himself or his audience). E = mc2 scores high marks in the plausibility rankings, but, to say the least, it lacks a little something in the poetry department". - Dave Sim

02:50 am: Paul Barnett explains Warhammer Online
This video is quite entertaining: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=4893306082091307277&q=warhammer

Worth watching if you are into MMORPGs, into Warhammer or just want to know what all the fuss is about anyway.

Something from the WoW forums that made me smile.

"Today, the United Staes Marines WTFPWNed some militants in the hills while more americans were ganked by a bunch of noob insurgents. The President has called for an immediate nerf ofall insurgent activities in the Iraqi BGs, claiming if the violence goes on we'll be forced to send raid groups into suspected hide-outs for some world PvP. In response, Shiek Abdul Hamadaba lol'ed, claiming he would use every exploit at his disposal against the opposing faction."

06:42 am: wow.
If anyone ever truly doubted that I would eventually start playing World of Warcraft, they probably didn't know me very well or were trying to win a bet the hard way. In defiance of my computer problems (that being that the motherboard on the "new" computer decided to go ker-plunk, though the problem could be solved very soon), I used Will's computer to being my foray into Azeroth. Minus about half an hour of assorted food and standing-up-to-stretch breaks, I played for 11 hours straight. I don't want anyone to think I'm cheating on Magic or anything, but this is easily the second best game I've ever played. If you have aboslutely no interest in World of Warcraft, feel free to not even bother with the cut text below, as I intend to go on and on about the game and give some vital statistics that will make me sound like one of those guys who goes into game stores and wants to tell you about his character. I hate those guys. I am those guys. Voila.

More work stuff to cram down your throats! First of all, everyone should click on http://forum.minneapolisfinder.com/viewtopic.php?t=250 to check out the second in that amusing series. Secondly, everyone should check out the new forum, which is more nationally minded - http://www.opponion.com I strongly advise everyone, no matter where you live, to click on it, sign up an account and start arguing with someone. And then pass the link along and tell the next person to do the same. Starting a new forum like this is rough, but I'd sure like these two to succeed.

At the behest of my "boss", we're trying to promote this piece aboutthe uncultured side of Minneapolis. I urge each of you to go to http://forum.minneapolisfinder.com/about188.html and read it, and then sign up an account and comment on it a whole bunch. And then everything else on the site.

11:46 pm: Help me keep my new job
So I've got this new job. I'm helping to promote and to provide a bit of firestarting for a new Minneapolis-focused forum which is located at http://forum.minneapolisfinder.com Well, in an effort to actually promote this damn thing, I'm suggesting that you all take a look. The idea here is to provide a forum for Minneapolitans to discuss anything and everything, without regard for political correctness or restrained opinions. Lots of politics, lots of news, lots of everything. It's a bit fledgling at the moment, but it's growing. So here's where I need your help. Go check it out. Sign up an account. Post some stuff. Hammer repeatedly on any post I've made so that it looks like I've gotten tons of people checking out everything I've written (and am going to write). If you see something posted on there that you violently disagree with, get into an argument about it. If you see something you completely agree with, well, post a whole bunch. You get the idea. But mostly, just give it a shot. Help me get the word out and I'll be employed for a good long time. As stated -http://forum.minneapolisfinder.com

So I'm all moved into the new place, now. It took moving all of my stuff to make me realize that I really don't have much. The room looks very barren. But that's okay as it contrasts nicely with the extreme clutter that exists everywhere else in the house. I'm pleased. The whirlwind of moving has been a very nice distraction, but it's starting to wear off. The anxieties that existed before I was so suddenly busy are creeping back in. Nothing to quite the degree it was at a week or two back, but it's definitely there. I'm in a new position to defend against them, and at least there's people around which helps. Still, I feel no less isolated than I did a few days ago. It may just be that this place doesn't feel like home yet. It's still "the new place" in my mind. I don't have routines here. And very little of the things and people I care about have entered into my life in any way since I moved, either. Moving makes me question whether it is, perhaps, time to turn over an entirely new leaf. Purging one thing (my parents) from my life to a great degree only spurs me to purge other things which trouble me. But what do I have left, then? When you're ready for something new, do you throw away the old before it arrives? Or do you find a replacement to prevent yourself from just having nothing until you do? Do I have anything to begin with?

In other news, I wish I had a (more) decent computer.
