What Type of RPG Player Are You?

C’mon! Even I have to admit that I’ve had way too many introspective and bleargh posts lately. I think it is past time for a side trip on the Amusing Waste of Time Express, destination: RPG Town. While this quiz is primarily geared towards the tabletop geeks, I’m sure those of you who play online games can appreciate it as well.


What Type of RPG Player (Not Character) Are You?

You scored as: Storyteller

The Storyteller is in it for the plot: the sense of mystery and the fun of participating in a narrative that has the satisfying arc of a good book or movie. He enjoys interacting with well-defined NPCs, even preferring antagonists who have genuine motivations and personality to mere monsters. To the Storyteller, the greatest reward of the game is participating in a compelling story with interesting and unpredictable plot threads, in which his actions and those of his fellow characters determine the resolution.

With apologies to Robin Laws.

Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life

I was reminded of this via email today after one of you twits read my last post decided to call me on it. Thank you my friend. I appreciated your candor and frank wisdom more than you might realize.

I do tend to get ever so emo and overdramatic about my current woes but you’re right, in the big picture they don’t mean shite and life is bigger than all the little worries we each have. I’ve known this instinctively for awhile and I’ve tried not to let my life overwhelm me but it still helps to hear someone else tell me this from time to time. Thanks.

In an effort to completely throw off the stigma that Mondays are all bad, I had an amazingly good interview today somewhere other than my current hell job and I suspect very strongly that I’ll get it (course if I don’t, it’ll be twice the blow to my ego but I’m not going to burn that bridge till later). I go in for a second interview tomorrow, so we shall see. *does the hopeful happy dance*

Melancholy & The Infinite Sadness

Tonight I’m feeling somewhat melancholic and reflective (and not because of the shiny duct tape on my arse either — don’t ask). If I had to guess, I’d blame Christmas and my financial situation for my complete and utter lack of enthusiasm. Due to my debts I’ve already decided not to participate in the holiday and I sent out an email to my family stating as much. I just don’t have the money for it and when I do, that money is already committed to debt reduction. I don’t have anything for them and would rather I didn’t get anything from them in return. It just wouldn’t seem right.

More importantly however, I just don’t have the spirit for the season.

On top of my seasonal Bah Humbug-ness I’m none too thrilled with my current job. It’s retail sales which is tolerable but I’m not a fan of the merchandise so I can’t be bothered to “sell it” with any great conviction. I can safely say that my co-workers are a bunch of knobs with little or no intelligence and even fewer social graces. It’s commission based sales which I utterly despise due to the poor work atmosphere it espouses. Already during my minimal training I’ve come face to face with the ugly underside and it ain’t pretty — as I said, my co-workers are knobs. Finally, it isn’t a position that has any upward mobility unless I sell well and with my aforementioned distaste I’m doubting that will happen anytime soon.

Needless to say I’m still trying to find something better, or just different and this will just keep the wolves from the door for a little while longer until I land somewhere I like. Hopefully that won’t take long because already my patience for this place is wearing thin and the little good that is there is being buried under a mile of bad.

I was going to post another stupid meme at this point, but my lead up to it jumped the tracks a long time ago and this post is a wholly different beast now. Instead I think I’m just going to end things for now and go to bed. I have to “work” *shudder* in the morning.


New Theme

As you can see, I’ve changed the theme again. I’m going to test this one out and see how it works out but so far I likes it. If nothing else, it’s a big change from my usual colour palette of blacks, blues, greys  and greens. I still need to tweak it a little to suit my needs but at a glance it works well enough. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, let me know.

Portal: The Flash Version

For those of you who know what The Orange Box is… I bring you this fun little adaptation. Enjoy.

In other news. Expect a moratorium on posting for the immediate future as more computer troubles have surfaced. They’re not mine this time around though, but they do end up affecting my access. Expect me if/when you see me.
