I recently decided that i needed to read the entire archives of penny arcade. It tickles me how old the 'new' references are now. "Hey, the PS2 is going to be a pile of shit!" and older. It just seems like ages ago.

That when the internet breaks "Its no big deal, it can wait 10 minutes till i'm done with star trek so your not in my way whilst you fix it" is the least appropriate response to "the internet has stopped working" ever.

Also, I learned that starting off the day with 2 hours of maths, while listening to music and watching it rain outside puts me in a nice productive mood for the rest of the day, woop!

Today, I learned that I actually enjoy being housewifey. My (male) friend broke a button off of his pants, and asked me if I would sew it back on for him. (Because he'd just done the same thing to his other pair of pants and didn't want to have to ask his mother again). I couldn't have lunged for my sewing supplies faster. It's kind of fun, doing something girly to help someone else out. :)

I learned that this spot on my leg is probably ringworm. The irony is that because of something on my thumb, I'm already going to be picking up an anti-fungal cream from the pharmacy and the pharmacist said it should help with the ringworm, too.

Today, thanks to wikipedia, I learned that ringworm is not, in fact, caused by a worm, and has nothing to do with worms or bugs or anything else horrendously squiggy.

....it's still icky, though. Just not "OH MY GOD OH MY GOD GET IT OFF ME!!!" squiggy.

The teacher apprieciated the gesture, but having to explain to people afterwards that no, that's not actually what I believe, got reaaalllllllllyyy frustrating.

Today I learned that people *really* like my cookies....

Like.. I only bake every now and then... and somehow, when I do, EVERYONE knows about it... like.. people I don't even know XD and they are addicted to my cookies... my friend has been asking me to make him cookies for a while, so I finally did because I felt bad because I made a pie this weekend and he only got one piece [turns out people really like my pies too XD ] so I brought him two dozen of my cookies, and then a few dozen extra, and they were completely gone before 11 a.m. XD I even had my physics teacher come find me after school asking for more but I was out.

Also, I learned that none of my super close friends will attend a concert with me last minute no matter how nicely I ask, but by simply mentioning that it's a Children of Bodom, Black Dahlia Murder, and Between the Buried and Me concert to a girl that I'm kinda friends with, but don't know extremely well, and she'll want to go right away. So yay! At least I'm not going alone anymore.

Spoiler:
one of my friends was supposed to go with me, and we've had this planned for months. But she never tells her father any of her plans in advance, and I've been telling her for three weeks, every day, that she NEEDS to let him know so nothing last minute will render her unable to go. Of course, she completely disregards me and doesn't bother to tell him until after 10 last night, when the concert is tonight. *sigh* Naturally. She can't come because she didn't give him enough warning time because she has physical therapy for her foot tonight and it would cost over $100 to cancel it without 24 hour warning. Had she even brought up the subject to him even two days ago when I begged her to make sure everything would work out, none of this would've happened. *sigh* Oh well. I love Tayler. She's amazing. And it'll be a fun concert with her tonight ^.^

Today I learned that posting a small yet poignant 'fess in the confessional thread sends a shockwave through the tubes, tracing down a fora member at random and striking them down with a depression and angst which far outstrips my own. I feel like I should experiment more to bring the phenomenon under closer scrutiny, but I worry about the dangers further confessions on my part would entail.

If only I could find a way to use my powers for good.

Contrary to popular opinion, it's actually possible to forestall inadvisable crushes if you catch them quickly enough and don't mind becoming a cold, emotionless bastard.

Then again, if you're considering the cost/benefit analysis of terminating a crush, you might already be there.

A sort of economist's approach to relationships - not sure if I could do that, though I am now curious as to what the balance sheet would look like. But yeah, I'd probably go further and say that if you're doing a cost/benefit analysis of terminating a crush, then you're probably not in love; I don't think my nieve little mind could cope with someone being that cold :( .

This is because love is a deep and powerful emotion that conquers all things! Consequentially, it's vitally important to catch it in its larval stages before it gets its hooks in. Otherwise you have to resort to painful and invasive procedures to dig out the heart-barbs. That, or the thing dies and explodes concussively inside your chest.

But the technique is a sound one, and is tremendously useful in a variety of situations! For instance, when you realize that you're the sort of person who habitually develops crushes on anyone who's nice to you, and don't want to be that guy. Or when you know (or suspect) that the object of your affection is already in a relationship. Or if you're rebounding and realize that this is not a good idea.

The price, of course, is that being ruthlessly analytical of your own motivations and actions turns you into the sort of person who is ruthlessly analytical of your own motivations and actions. It's just a matter of whether or not you'd rather be this, or be that guy.

Not quite. You could also be a creepy distant guy. Or a logical clingy guy, who will get emotionally attached and then argue with you over why you're being a twat for not reciprocating. We call these people "Stalkers" and "jerks," respectively.

There are no other possibilities! I have Science has ruled them out.

Well, I didn't do it on purpose, you know.

Not entirely sure what the story would be. They're obviously not bruises of impact; they're long and thin and across the entire back of both my wrists. They aren't quite finger shaped, but...hm...I suppose I could just say they happened *when* I was doing something heroic and not explain *how.* "When I was rescuing the helpless baby from King Vortegan."

Or you could go the opposite route and thicken the plot. And say you got them from "falling down the stairs." This works better if you live on a first-floor apartment.

I learned that mosh pits are absolutely terrifying, but extremely fun at the same time. Also, I learned not many girls mosh, and painfully learned why XD But people in mosh pits are nice at least :D [at least the ones I was in] They knocked me down, then some other guy would come pick me up and stick me back in teh crowd so I don't get trampled completely. haha. it was fun.

One last thing I learned, is that apparently, being thrown into a mosh pit and coming to school all bruised the next day with a concert tee shirt as more proof, is a fairly sufficient excuse as to why none of your homework is done o.O The worst I got was written up by my french teacher, who then told me I can turn in my homework on monday for full credit, but I still get written up. Sweet. At least it won't bring down my grade :D

I just realised that I have been all three of those people - this is disturbing.

I have found a third option to the others of distant and cold and intense and creepy - the passive and apologetic guy, like unmentioned class, the asshole, this group is both tempting and unattractive to women, but it does mean that you have the ability to accept what the object of your attraction has to say and see it as a very sensible thing.

I just laid down earlier today and as if it were triggered by the act of my back touching a mattress, I was completely feverish, despite feeling absolutely fine five minutes prior.

While a nice sentiment, it's just not enough...I don't need support, I need a way to fix this. There has to be a way to stop this, to get her to go out with a man who doesn't already have someone who's completely devoted to him. I mean, I spoke with the girl less than a month ago, and she swore up and down that they were just friends and that she didn't want to be more than friends. All of a sudden, he's driving her car and kissing her in front of me and I just feel gutted...

Especially since he did things with her EXACTLY how he did them with me. Changed his major to hers, brought her to his place to watch movies, got her to stay overnight after said movies, took her to a concert, and then BAM. I mean, hell, their anniversary is exactly ONE WEEK after ours.


Which prompted me to learn that I was not special, nor unique.

I also learned today that cats are not as uncaring or oblivious as they let on. They're extremely empathic and know just when they're needed.

....I also learned that it's possible for me to be typing a post and completely forget about it for hours. I think I started writing this at, like... 2PM Eastern time... o_O WTF.

@ Silvyr: Augh, I've never been in a mosh pit before, but someone (I can't remember which of my exes it was... the first, probably...) told me about something called the "Wall of Death", where the concert attendees split to two sides of the concert venue, and then run full force at each other. o_O Sounds...painful, to say the least.

Closest I've ever come was at the Nightwish concert last month. Some idiot tried to run through the crowd to get to the front, and we all collectively pushed him back and glared daggers at him. I got to the front by asking people if I could move ahead of them, not by shoving. That just hurt. >.< Jerk pushed me right into the person who was leaning on the railing, and she got the full-force hit of metal-on-chest.

Argh, feel better, Ninja! :( Being sick is no fun... (Unless you have someone to dote on you, in which case...)
