State of the Nos: 11/2012

So... I've been pretty quiet lately. I see that my last posted-post was around five weeks ago now (several more posts have been typed out and deleted before publishing).

Usually when I go quiet I've embarked on a caffeine and obsession fueled modding binge and am working on a seeeekrit projekt.

Not so much, this time. I've just felt like death warmed over and been living a life laughably bad enough that I think sometimes they could make a Chevy Chase-era National Lampoons movie about it.

What modding I've been doing has been almost across-the-board failures; ranging from "works; but is more of a pain than it's worth" to "Gods... why did I ever think this would be a good idea?!"

But, I've built up a few posts worth of junk to prattle about; and have a few dozen screenshots in the Picasa account I've been meaning to post but kept deleting the posts before publishing.

Figure instead of doing one big post, I'll split it up into three or four. Takes longer, but it's like having multiple kids in a third world hellhole: better odds that at least one will see the light of day...

And while I try not to be political here on the blog since I know we all come from different countries and have different outlooks on life, I still want to take a moment to say this: THE DAY AFTER HALLOWEEN IS TOO EARLY TO PUT UP YOUR CHRISTMAS LIGHTS YOU CHUCKLEFUCKS; AND THE SECOND WEEK IN NOVEMBER IS TOO EARLY TO START BOMBARDING PEOPLE WITH CHRISTMAS MUSIC EVERYWHERE THEY GO. PSYCHOTIC BREAKS WILL BE HAD AT THIS RATE.

So... yeah. Posts incoming, I suppose. May take a couple days to get them all out; depending on how I feel and whether I get dragged off to bed for emergency mood therapy.

  1. Ditto on the Christmas in July trend here in the States. It's all about the mighty $.

      While I nominally agree on the soul-less capitalism... I've been working under the theory that the incessant Christmas-ing (at least as far as lights around the home and all) are people desperately trying to keep that "holiday spirit" going as much as possible, since most people think of Christmas as the best time of year and all.

      Personally, I've always hated Christmas... but my family could be considered uncouth by the standards of the Jerry Springer Show... so folks with a normal family may have better luck with the whole convoluted mess.

      I will however refrain from launching into a rant about what a bad idea it is to spend money you don't have on stuff no one needs to give to people you wouldn't even associate with if they weren't blood related.

    So say we all!

    That said, I hope things improve for you soon, Nos.

      I appreciate that thought... but considering I had an $880 ammo deal crap out on me last night; and a $120 pair of new boots pop an eyelet the first time I laced them up... so I'm going to have to stick with my theory that the week sucks, thanks.
