Now this is depressing:

Wouldn't it be interesting if you meant that comment to be taken literally? Couldn't you just imagine him literally going in and breaking your friends page out of his deep devotion to his deity of choice?

I find it pretty fucking hilarious, myself.

Ok, that's the first time I've laughed out loud since I got up this morning... Thank you.

You're absolutely welcome. Always nice to know that other people have a reaction to my comments other than gut-wrenching nausea and an urge to amputate their genitalia with some sort of indubitably unsterile blunt utensil to remove even the remote possibility of another such as myself ever being born into the world.

Nope. Not that reaction at all.

Is this one better on your eyes? I can claim copyright to this one. :) Mine all mine. Small snip of a much larger render I did some time back.

Actually, at this point, sleep would be a good thing. It's about 4:30AM my time and I kind of need to get up tomorrow morning, as I agreed to come home early to help my dad bake pies for the gathering with his side of the fam'.
I dunno, you think it'd be easier to sleep if I'd stop pumping my body full of caffeine and nicotine? Kind of on the fence about that one, m'self.

You hadn't heard about that yet? Positively disgusting. Once again, I praise god for the fact that out of the almost 11 gigs of music on Beatrice (G:\), no more than 1% (if that) is anything they'd be remotely interested in prosecuting me for having.

... And I just actually looked at the avatar you're currently using. Is that from Megatokyo?

I had heard of it, but I hadn't seen the actual number of cases that they had gotten settled out of court... I'm smack dab in the middle of both that issue and the SCO v. IBM issue as well.

And yes, it sure is from megatokyo. :) so is my blanket and the shirt I'm currently wearing...

Sweet. I'm more of a Penny Arcade chick myself, but I do read MT pretty regularly.

You are aware of the megatokyo feed right?
