I give up.  
A number of people I respect, care about and like a great deal find things like the hate thread and fandom wank amusing. I don't like such things at all. I've been trying to reconcile these two sides and find that I can't - to me, causing other people deliberate pain and then saying it's those people's fault if they're hurt because they're too fragile... I just can't agree with that. However, since I can't figure this out, I'm not going to try anymore. I don't need the headache any longer and I have too much of my own crap to worry about. Therefore, I guess this will have to be one of those things where we agree to disagree and go on with our sad little lives.

In other exciting news, I have spent the weekend playing the first Monkey Island, Syberia II and reading Tamora Pierce. This whole losing an hour thing has been kicking my arse around the apartment all day, so I think I'm going to collect my laundry and then read in bed until I pass out (which should be in about 10 minutes if that much).

Oh, have I mentioned that I joined the staff of The Witching Hour? Yeah, baby!

G'night, world.
I feel: sleepysleepy

The first Monkey Island!!! *SQUEEBOUNCESQUEE*

Memorieeeeees, from the corners of my miiiind.

During the summer of 1993, I did five things:
(1) Go to work in the lab a few hours a week.
(2) Attend my German conversation class with Marc.
(3) Have lots of sex; M & I had been together since the previous fall.
(4) Play Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2 on my bitchin 486 that I had bought b/c it had a numeric coprocessor and could run Mathematica. (I am sooo dating myself here.)
(5) Eat Vietnamese take-out.

...and (1) and (2) were a bit spotty. I loved Monkey Island - what fun.
