Confusion Game / Seduction Style / Quizzes

Confusion Game (Help.)

Six levels, eight questions each. Can YOU solve it?

Replace boredom with confusion!

The 6 areas are ranked in increasing order of difficulty. The 6th, and hardest, isn't available until the other 5 are finished. I strongly suggest you attempt them in the given order.

Choose an area, and get a puzzle. Solving it allows you to move to the next puzzle, until they're all solved. You'll get a key at the end of each area: keep this.

I just finished this about half an hour ago, thanks to lots of hints!

Help here.. yes, I joined the forum. :P

Etienne Image Puzzle / Stick Figures / Letter I saw elsewhere / Steve and KISS

Etienne Image Puzzle.. driving me and Corey insane. :P (help)

Stick Death... for you sadists, or anyone who draws stick figures.

This is a letter I read elsewhere earlier today. Perfect for me.

Dear boy who has my heart,

When I read or hear about other people's happiness, I feel so bitter. I hate to be that way because I don't think I'm that kind of person. But I just wonder when I will finally be treated the way that I deserve, the way that I want. Why do you do this to me? What have I done to you? I am so confused about everything and I don't know where to start to try to even figure anything out. You need to help me because I don't understand. I have all these intuitive feelings that tell me things but when I tell you how I feel, you get mad. You get frustrated, you tell me that I'm wrong. Then you start feeling bad. But what is really going on?? I don't have a single clue. Do you love me anymore? What do you want? Tell me. I don't even know. All I know is that things are so different and it scares me. All I know is that you don't seem to want to talk to me anymore. You don't tell me how you feel. I feel ugly in your eyes. I feel unwanted. If that is the truth, I wish you would just tell me. Give me the truth. I cannot take otherwise, because something inside me knows and it refuses to let me believe just anything you say. My heart cannot be deceived.

Please stop breaking it. Whatever you decide to do to it will be how it remains. I will love you for the rest of my life.

with tears in my eyes,
a girl who wants you to love her

You all know about those KISS Instant Live CDs from their last American tour, don't you? The ones that were recorded during the show and you could buy them on your way out? Of course you do. Marvellous idea it was, too.

The problem is that I didn't go to any concerts during the last American tour and thus I couldn't get one. This I find most irritating. I would therefore like to purchase from somewhere in Internet land an Instant Live CD of one show (it doesn't matter where it was recorded) that has the songs Got To Choose, Parasite, War Machine and Unholy. Ebay is no help at all I'm afraid, so I'll have to embark on my quest elsewhere. If you have any helpful hints, doncha hesitate to let me know-ow-ow-ow...

Anyone have leads for my friend Steve?

Good deals, Eric, Joe Wu's origami, V-Day suicide pact, Music Nerd Test, This is Yesterday, quizzes

I just got back from buying a whole bunch of things at Shoppers Drug Mart. I'll never complain about how expensive those items are again, at least not after I saw the prices at the pharmacy for something similar! The cost for four packs of 32 at Shoppers Drug Mart still was $1.89 cheaper than for ONE pack of 24 at the pharmacy next to my apartment complex!

Tonight will mark my fifth consecutive Friday night at home.. oh well. Not much I can do about things, and I don't feel like going out anyhow! Maybe I'll be back with Eric next week... I need to ask him for a ride home from church next Sunday, too. Maybe later on.

My friend Joe Wu's origami page... haven't seen him in ages, sadly.

Valentine's Day suicide pact.

On The Music Nerd Test, I scored 49.27536% - Super Music Nerd!

Actually, This Is Yesterday is pretty cool... bookmark it. It has music stuff, journal icons, concert stories, lists of music-related stuff, quizzes, links to other fun websites, a message board, a drawing board (which kills my computer.. and I thought I had left that set of problems behind with my ancient temperamental 486!), this person's poetry / writing, etc. :)

Eric, the anniversary dinner, Evil Overlord List, Desiderata, quizzes

Talked to Eric, and he IS going to the anniversary dinner! :D

Called my dad to tell him that we were both going, and I also told him that I wasn't talking to my mom. She invaded my privacy, and I don't stand for that.

The Evil Overlord List.. all kinds of funny! :D

Below is a poem that we should all read and take into consideration.

Max Ehrmann

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
And remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender,
Be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
And listen to others,
Even the dull and the ignorant;
They too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
They are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
You may become vain and bitter;
For always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
It is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
For the world is full of trickery.

But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
Many persons strive for high ideals;
And everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself.

Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
For in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
It is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
Gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
Be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,
No less than the trees and the stars;
You have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
No doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God,
Whatever you conceive Him to be.

And whatever your labors and aspirations,
In the noisy confusion of life, keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
It is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

Max Ehrmann

Mothers and unauthorized access / Literature Classic quiz

My mom just came in here, without my permission! She buzzed the assistant manager to get in here instead... I wonder what she said to her. She doesn't seem to get the concept that my place should be private, and I should have the only say in who enters, especially now when it's early in the morning (for me) and I expect peace and quiet! I don't care if she DID give me stuff from Grandma and Dave's mom: at least I won't be seeing her for two weeks!

At least I don't have to go to lunch with her now... I *hate* having my routine interrupted! When I heard the knocking on the door, I thought it was something like the mailman with a package... like THAT ever would happen around here. As she left, she told me that she wanted to knock on the window next time, but wasn't sure which one my apartment was. Is NOTHING safe?! When I told her not to do that again, she said: "But I gave you gifts, and wanted to let you know not to meet us at 12 since Grandma wants to go home now!" That doesn't matter!

I'm too emotional / hormonal as it IS... I do NOT need my mother descending upon this place at ANY time without my prior permission! She even used my washroom, only to ask me: "Do you have your period AGAIN?!" Uh, yeah.. there's nothing I can do about it! This is why I need my @#$# PRIVACY! Sometimes she is insufferable, like now!

Yeah, I could get the manager to NOT let her in... but I suspect I'd need a good reason like a restraining order. :P Besides, I can't do anything about my fellow apartment dwellers who'd let her in... THAT has happened too many times before. NOT a good start to the day!

Double Uterus / Error Messages / You Know You're Chinese When.... / R&M Quizzes

Read this article on twins born two months apart... their mother has a double uterus! Atom Smasher's Error Message Gallery is funny, too!

You Know You're Chinese When...

During a sale on toilet paper, you buy 100 rolls and store them in your closet or in the bedroom of an adult child who has moved out. If my mom sees this thing, she'll make me use my living room for such a purpose. As it is, she already wants me to use my living room to store all the junk that won't fit in the townhouse... I don't THINK so!

You use the dishwasher as a dish rack. If the family had one, we would! But it costs too much for one, so we had to do the dishes by hand.

You eat all meals in the kitchen. Usually.

You save grocery bags, tinfoil, and tin containers. Grocery bags, yes.. the other ones, sometimes.

You use grocery bags to hold garbage. Always, might as well reuse the bags at least once.

You always leave your shoes at the door. Yup, usually!

You have a piano in your living room. In the houses we've lived in, it was the living room... now, I think it's in my dad's study.

You twirl your pen around your fingers. Sometimes... I know Stella's really good at it!

Even if you're totally full, if someone says they're going to throw away the leftovers on the table, you'll finish them. Usually!

You don't own any real Tupperware -- only a cupboard full of used but carefully rinsed margarine tubs, takeout containers, and jam jars. Not really, but my parents have a lot of them.

You also use the jam jars as drinking glasses. Uh, no... that's just gross.

You've eaten a red bean Popsicle. Mom said it was frozen soup....

You bring oranges (or other produce) with you as a gift when you visit people's homes. My mom always does that, even when we eat with others in restaurants and they're paying for it!

You have a collection of miniature shampoo bottles that you take every time you stay in a hotel. You should see my mother's cupboard for such things!

Ditto for paper napkins. HAHAHAHA... oh yes!

You never order room service. Too true! Would cost too much extra money.

You carry a stash of your own food whenever you travel (and travel means any car ride longer than 15 minutes). These travel snacks are always dried. As in not just dried plums, dried ginger, and beef / pork jerky, but dried cuttlefish (SQUID). My mom sometimes does, and I should buy those things since they are YUMMY!

Your dad thinks he can fix everything himself. Somewhat....

You majored in something practical like engineering, medicine or law. We three never did.

You don't use measuring cups. No, I use measuring spoons. But my mom does use measuring cups, haha.

You feel like you've gotten a good deal if you didn't pay tax. Of course!

You beat eggs with chopsticks. Never done that.

Your parents' house is always cold. Yes! When I complain, they say MY place is too hot! I should apparently also wear a sweater or jacket at all times.

Your mom drives her Mercedes to the Price Club. We don't have a Mercedes, so whatever.

You have acquired a taste for bittermelon. Not really, but I'll eat it if I have to... my mom says it cleans the palate.

You prefer your shrimp with the heads and legs still attached -- it means they're fresh. Yes, and I eat the legs too!

You never call your parents just to say hi. Nope, only if I need something! Haha.

Your parents tell you to boil herbs and stay inside when you get sick. I never liked Chinese medicine, but they did tell me that!

They also tell you not to eat fried foods or baked goods because they produce hot air. Yeet hei... oh yes, I remember all that!

Your parents send money to their relatives in China. No, my uncle's family is well off.

You use a face cloth. Yes, this is true.

Your parents use a clothes line. They never did... "Do you want the NEIGHBORS to see our bras and underwear?!"

You eat every last grain of rice in your bowl, but don't eat the last piece of food on the table. Very true!

You starve yourself before going to all-you-can-eat sushi. Yeah, very true.

You never discuss your love life with your parents. WHAT love life?! If anything, my parents MAKE UP a love life FOR me!

Your parents are never happy with your grades. They never were, no.

You keep most of your money in a savings account. True, although I go through it like mad.

Your toothpaste tubes are all squeezed paper-thin. Usually... can't waste it!

You love Chinese Martial Arts films. Sort of, yeah...

Shao Lin and Wu Tang actually mean something to you. Shaolin monks!

You never order sweet-n-sour pork, egg foo young, or chop suey at a Chinese restaurant. Even if they are gwei lo food, we order them. :P

You have a Chinese knick-knack hanging from your rear-view mirror. I don't drive, but my family never did.

You like to eat chicken feet. Yes! I should have some more, preferably the spicy kind.

You turn bright red after drinking two tablespoons of beer. Not usually, but that would aptly describe my mother.

You look like you are eighteen. Yup, that's the advantage to being Asian.. you either look really young, or really old!

You can't bear to throw things away. Precisely why my place has so much junk... sigh.

You drive around looking for the cheapest gas. HAHAHAHA... oh, to go back to the price-war days when it was like 40 cents a litre!

You've never seen your parents hug. Actually, that's not true... I even remember them kissing when I was a kid!

Your grandmother lives with you and your family. Yup, certainly!

You always have water when dining out. Most times, yes!

You say "aiya!" and "wah!" frequently. "Aiya!" more so than "wah!" ... "wah!" sounds like something Nathan would say, and I might pick it up!

You love to play mah jong. Not me, although I did have beginner's luck and won my very first game... my grandma LOVES it, though.

Your mother is strangely obsessed with plants. A definite yes!

Your folks never speak under 10 decibels at family gatherings. Definitely... we NEVER shut up! :P

You have two middle initials instead of one. Yes, mine sound like a Mexican dog. :P

You grow your own bean sprouts in the kitchen. Nope.

Your mother made you peel water chestnuts and snow peas. Snow peas, yes... water chestnuts, I'm not so sure.

You have a lonely unmarried relative who frequently drops by during dinner time. Unmarried family friends, yes... and I may be that one for this generation! Aiya!

You received little red envelopes containing money on special occasions. Oh yeah, baby!

You cut your own hair... or had someone in your family do it. My mother fancies herself an amateur hairdresser, yes.

Your grandmother has a lot of gold teeth... especially in front. Hmm.. not a LOT, but some!

You keep fresh garlic and ginger in the kitchen at all times. Not me, but my mom certainly does!

You never drank milk after eating cherries. Hmm.. don't think I did.

Your parents collect jade jewelry. Not really... my grandma has at least one jade bracelet, though.

You always drink tea after a meal. Not ALWAYS... but certainly in Chinese restaurants!

Your parents grow vegetables in a garden. Yeah, they grew stuff in the garden all right!

Your grandmother rapped your knuckles with her chopsticks when you reached for food with your fingers. I don't remember that, but it probably did happen!

You're proud to be Chinese - and you pass these jokes on to all your Chinese friends! Hahaha, you bet!

I'm Charles the Mad. Sclooop.
Which Historical Lunatic Are You?
From the fecund loins of Rum and Monkey.

You are Charles VI of France, also known as Charles the Mad or Charles the Well-Beloved!

A fine, amiable and dreamy young man, skilled in horsemanship and archery, you were also from a long line of dribbling madmen. King at 12 and quickly married to your sweetheart, Bavarian Princess Isabeau, you enjoyed many happy months together before either of you could speak anything of the other's language. However, after illness, you became a tad unstable. When a raving lunatic ran up to your entourage spouting an incoherent prophecy of doom, you were unsettled enough to slaughter four of your best men when a page dropped a lance. Your hair and nails fell out. At a royal masquerade, you and your courtiers dressed as wild men, ending in tragedy when four of them accidentally caught fire and burned to death. You were saved by the timely intervention of the Duchess of Berry's underskirts.

This brought on another bout of sickness, which surgeons countered by drilling holes in your skull. The following months saw you suffer an exorcism, beg your friends to kill you, go into hyperactive fits of gaiety, run through your rooms to the point of exhaustion, hide from imaginary assassins, claim your name was Georges, deny that you were King, and fail to recognise your family. You smashed furniture and wet yourself at regular intervals. Passing briefly into erratic genius, you believed yourself to be made of glass, and demanded iron rods in your attire to prevent you breaking.

In 1405, you stopped bathing / shaving / changing your clothes. This went on until several men were hired to blacken their faces, hide, jump out and shout "boo!"... upon which you resumed basic hygiene. Despite this, your wife continued sleeping with you until 1407, when she hired a young beauty, Odette de Champdivers, to take her place. Isabeau then consoled herself, as it were, with your brother. Her lovers followed thick and fast while you became a pawn of your court, until you had her latest beau strangled and drowned.

A severe fever was fended off with oranges and pomegranates in vast quantities, but you succumbed again in 1422 and died. Your disease was most likely hereditary. Unfortunately, you had anywhere up to eleven children, who variously went on to develop capriciousness, great cruelty, insecurity, paranoia, revulsion towards food and, in one case, a phobia of bridges.

I'm Swiss, yodelodelodelay-hee-foo'
Which Survivor of the Impending Nuclear Apocalypse Are You?
A Rum and Monkey joint.

Dust off your flugelhorn and heat up the sausages, 'cause you're The Swiss!

Decked in neutrality for almost a billion years now, the Swiss are always the favourites to survive any nuclear conflict. Not only do they have the most amazing dress sense, but they've also got keen technical knowhow, a very logical cultural heritage, and seventeen extra feet which they keep in their heads.

The Swiss are stereotypically associated with cuckoo clocks, chocolate, fondue, and yodelling; it should be pointed out that they also enjoy running through the hills, goat-farming, and keeping the Earth safe from alien scum.

I'm So Drunk!
What Kind of Drunk Are You?
Brought to you by Rum and Monkey

You're the "I'm So Drunk" drunk.

"I'm drunk." *pause* "I'm so-o-o-o drunk."

"I'm pissed."


I've declared my inebriation with the above sign!

I am Pinochet.
Which Evil Criminal are You?
A Rum and Monkey crime.

Congratulations, you're Pinochet!

You ruled Chile from 1973 to 1990, and are responsible for the abduction / torture / disappearance / execution of thousands upon thousands of political opponents. When you first took power in 1973, you embarked upon a programme delightfully named the Caravan of Death, which extracted prisoners from the country's jails and executed them. Victims were sodomised, blinded, starved and electrocuted (amongst other things) hundreds and hundreds of times in just the two years between 1988 and 1990.

You also were allied with Britain in the Falklands war during the 1980's; Margaret Thatcher, then the Prime Minister of Britain, has said that it owes you a great debt.

If you wish, you can proudly tell the world that you're a cruel dictator!

I am Rabies. Grrrrrrrr!
Which Horrible Affliction are you?
A Rum and Monkey disease.

Congratulations, you're rabies!

Transmitted by rabid animals, you're most commonly found infecting creatures such as raccoons / skunks / bats / foxes. But don't worry, you affect humans too... causing either paralysis or hyperactivity in your advanced stages, and ultimately death.

Your most famous symptom is hypersalivation - that delightful foaming at the mouth that we have come to know and indeed love. However, you can also cause hallucination; think of the fun you could have at parties!

If you wish, you can proudly tell the world that you kill dogs!

Tickets for anniversary celebration, inviting white Eric, Chinese New Year stuff, webcams / barking

Just got off the phone with my friend Lily, who's in charge of the Fellowship tickets for the church's 30th anniversary celebration on March 5 at Floata. Tickets are going fast, especially since I missed all the hype leading up to it a couple weeks ago. Luckily, I managed to get a ticket from her.. I'll pay her for it when I see her this weekend.

I also called white Eric, because I told Chinese Eric that I would last night. Asked Eric M. if he was free for Monday, and he should be able to make it. Explained the concept to him, and he asked if it was just me and Eric H. No, we're very open to inviting others too! We're not like certain couples who are wrapped up in each other 24/7... even if we're not a couple, I still think the analogy fits for these purposes! :D

He wished me a Happy Chinese New Year (which meant more than someone else's wish, haha), and said that his work had gone out to lunch at Kingspark Seafood House today to celebrate. They'd had dim sum, but it was better than at the Golden Phoenix (the restaurant near our church).. it was cleaner, and it wasn't quite as stressful crazy. I told him that it was his year (the year of the Rooster), as if he didn't know that already. Eric told me of the triple benefit that the lunch was: his work paid for it, the lunch was two hours long, and they all got some lucky money in red envelopes! Even if parking was a pain, I'd say that it was well worth that trouble. :D

Then he asked if my Fellowship program was at the church, since their group is going to Fraser Lands (another church) to do something. I thought it probably was, but I'll get back to him on that later.. plus ask if he got a ticket yet. At least I now have something to tell Chinese Eric if he asks whether anyone else is coming!

Also received some news this morning that isn't technically mine to share.. but apparently it's a certain someone's destiny. (ministry?) We'll see on that one... man, I'm too cynical these days. Don't know what's with me.

Now Corey's trying to convince me to get a webcam since he likes seeing reactions to his nonsense. I don't know about that, but at least he solved the mystery of my Trillian barking at me.. Amy has a dog icon in her MSN name [ (&) ], and that's probably triggering the barks. The infamous "toilet icon" doesn't make a sound, though. Probably better that way, or I'd be hearing toilet flushes from my computer once Corey knew about it... *laugh*

Family drama / paid LJ account continuing? / Monty Python sketch character quiz

My mom emailed me this morning, telling me not to call my uncle anymore while he's here in town. Apparently, my cousin Aaron's girlfriend Joyce misinformed him about why my grandma was staying over at my parents' place for the last six months. So then I called her... seems she feels unappreciated because of all the work she did when my cousin Yvonne was over here studying, since Mom pulled strings with someone in high places to get her into university. Yvonne didn't like her criticism of who she was seeing at the time, and her multiple boyfriends afterwards. (My mom's view: "if you care about someone, you nag them... and you weren't too happy with me either for doing that!" Well, who WOULD be?!)

Add to that the fact that she hasn't been able to get ahold of Grandma for the last week or so, until this morning. Apparently Uncle Michael is now angry at Mom for something or other... she doesn't want to take them out for lunch now since the family atmosphere would be forced / strained / cool. But if he doesn't want to phone her and see what's going on from her side, she won't bother either. Ah, family drama.... ugh!

Totally unrelated: I decided to go to the page where you paid for LiveJournal accounts. Heck, I've only had two "urgent" emails from over the past week informing me that my paid account was about to expire. :P So maybe I'll get my mom to drop me off at the mall tomorrow after we're done having lunch and such with my grandma, and I won't spend a zillion bucks on stuff again. (I can only hope!) I figured that maybe I should drop the $25 USD, since I'm sure I spend more than that on more useless stuff every year... and LJ isn't exactly useless, haha. (though I'm positive my family would say it is, eep) Can't be THAT much more in Canadian dollars! I sent one money order last year for Wendy Ring's mustard, so it's not like I have no idea what to expect, haha. Just go to the bank, request a money order for $25 USD, fill it out there, put it in an envelope with a note that references my payment number (no printer, so can't print out the page), and then mail it to LJ while hoping for the best! ;) (Sarah should be happy now!)

You are the Abuse Clerk. You dish out verbal abuse all day long... as long as the customer keeps paying. AAH, what satisfying work!

aryk29: You should come play Assassins. :p
flamsterette_x: Hey, they have quick reply boxes now.

aryk29: wb
aryk29: Hey, that's really nice! :) Except at the end where it gets all chain-lettery. :p
flamsterette_x: It's not random symbols.. it's Chinese. :P
flamsterette_x: And yes, I thought so too when Eric H. sent it to me.
aryk29: Ah, okay. I don't have the requisite fonts installed then.
flamsterette_x: Did the Chinese show up as weird symbols?
aryk29: I see 12 ae oe mu ae cents symbol underscore, c cedilla - a few more symbols that aren't legible in my hand print font - c cedilla, e grave, capital S with caron, and +/- symbol, yeah.
flamsterette_x: Actually, I see that too. I was talking about the Chinese in the slide show itself.
aryk29: No, I just see boxes.
flamsterette_x: Ah.
aryk29: I'm impressed that Messenger actually transferred the file this time, though. :p
flamsterette_x: Yahoo Messenger?! Sure it did.
aryk29: Oh, you're on Yahoo now, and not Trillian? All right! :D In that case...
aryk29: :D
flamsterette_x: Correction.
aryk29: *sigh*
flamsterette_x: I only went on real Yahoo to transfer that file. Once that was done, I switched back to Trillian.
aryk29: So you didn't see me switch my status text? *pout*
flamsterette_x: No, I did not.
flamsterette_x: Says the same thing it always did... "Custom."
aryk29: Oh well.

aryk29: I don't know either, but I'm sorry to hear that it does! :( Maybe if I knew them, I'd have a better idea...
flamsterette_x: No, I don't have designs on either one of them. One is a girl, and I don't swing that way. The other smokes, and that's a minus for me personally.
aryk29: So Cris would be the girl then.
flamsterette_x: But.. I had the thought that they were joking.. or even maliciously saying that they were in love and blah blah because they knew my own relationship's not going so well. (who knows) I know either isn't true, but... eek.
flamsterette_x: Yes, have you ever heard of a girl called Matt? :P
aryk29: :D For once, no.
flamsterette_x: (and no, I don't mean short for Matilda or Mattie :P)
aryk29: Ooh, I hadn't thought of that.
flamsterette_x: But yeah.. you know what would be comedy GOLD?
aryk29: What?
aryk29: (I mean... no, tell me :D )
flamsterette_x: They were both members of an LJ community called Lovers Far Away. (hereafter abbreviated to LFA for obvious reasons :P) That's how I got to know them, in fact.
flamsterette_x: But then they both had real problems with their partners at the time. His partner refused to give up a bad influence in her life, and her partner just wasn't communicating.. for over 7 weeks.
flamsterette_x: They both posted stuff in their personal journals about a "sweetie pie" they'd met. Fair enough, I thought. You move on, you find someone else.. whatever. I admit to having thought some time ago that it would be kinda neat if two people in LFA found each other through the community.
aryk29: And they did. :D
flamsterette_x: Yes, but I never thought my prescient powers would happen to two people I knew!
aryk29: Ah
flamsterette_x: (and I talk way too much.. this is why I'll never get anyone :P)
aryk29: There's someone for each of us.
flamsterette_x: Haha, I know. You've apparently found someone too. Given my current state of mind, I should want to do something to you too, but can't.
flamsterette_x: Or won't.
aryk29: I have?
flamsterette_x: Sure you have... misstee?
aryk29: She's married!
flamsterette_x: So then what in the heck are you doing.......
flamsterette_x: Never mind. I was in that situation once myself, I know how it is.
aryk29: I think it is just that she's curious. And anyway, she started it! :p :D
aryk29: By the way, I did not find the urban quiz offensive.
aryk29: Just got done taking the rest of 'em. :D
flamsterette_x: Phoenix PM'ed me, saying that I might want to slap a language warning onto it.
aryk29: Ah, I see.
flamsterette_x: Nutty doesn't like the T word. (I can't say I much care for it, either)
aryk29: Good thing for that "add edit by line" checkbox, no? ;)
aryk29: Oh ic.
flamsterette_x: Haha, I never use it.
aryk29: Except in wristwatch. :p
flamsterette_x: Alyssa always does.
flamsterette_x: Oh, haha. That reminds me of what happened on the old board, which DID censor all "objectionable" words, and allowed Viper and Nutty to create their own filter.
aryk29: I usually leave it unchecked... unless I specifically want to show when the edit took place.
aryk29: Yeah, you told me once. ;)
flamsterette_x: Oh, all right then. Wasn't sure.
flamsterette_x: Now I'm recycling old stories... must mean I'm either getting predictable, or more comfortable with you. Pick one.
aryk29: When is predictability ever a good thing? ;)
aryk29: brb
aryk29: k
flamsterette_x: k
aryk29: I mean... okay, I'm back. :D
aryk29: So food's going to be ready soon... this time, it's chicken. Mmmmmm, chicken. :D
flamsterette_x: :D
flamsterette_x: Haha, I can just imagine Homer Simpson saying that.
aryk29: Yeah, that'd be where I got it from. :D
aryk29: (Although in his case, he said chocolate... but it's all good.)
flamsterette_x: Haha, it's all good then!
flamsterette_x: Sorry I was a little snarky earlier. Didn't mean it.
aryk29: 'Sokay. :) I didn't perceive it as snarky, just that you were not in a good mood and I was sorry to hear that.
aryk29: (And I almost commiserated...)
aryk29: See, I had certain thoughts yesterday about a certain gateway server... :p
flamsterette_x: (Commiserate all you like. :) )
flamsterette_x: Which gateway server?
aryk29: The one that went out yesterday afternoon.:p
flamsterette_x: Oh yes, your DSL. :P
aryk29: ;)
flamsterette_x: I can understand. I get really annoyed when my Net service won't work for one reason or another.
aryk29: Yeah... especially when obligated to post a thread. :O Not only that, but Dad didn't get a chance to keep up on some items in eBay... it's a joke. Like I said to him, gimme dial up, I'll gladly wait for the pages to load.
flamsterette_x: Sorry. :P
flamsterette_x: Yeah, I can totally understand that.
aryk29: Yup. And hey - in IM chat, the difference in speed isn't even noticeable! :D
flamsterette_x: Definitely not! :D
aryk29: Now we're trying to figure out why AVG isn't working. I considered Pitting them, but decided against it.
flamsterette_x: AVG's not working? Aw man!
aryk29: Yeah, it won't download an update. Plus, the newest version won't run on my computer because I have NT Server installed. Like, yeah, nobody runs a domain server on their home network! *rolleyes*
aryk29: But people would probably just give me grief about: if I can afford NT server, then I can afford to pay for AVG. Which just isn't the case this time...
flamsterette_x: Yeah. So... was I right?
aryk29: ?
flamsterette_x: About this.
aryk29: I have no idea.
aryk29: I am having another dingy moment.
aryk29: Hey, a pun! :D HIC LIBER WALTONIS CUTE COMPACTUS EST - that can be read 2 different ways!
aryk29: (As "hic liber Waltonis, cute compactus est," or as "hic liber, Waltonis cute, compactus est.")
flamsterette_x: All right then.
flamsterette_x: I was obliquely referring to how people can be at the Dope.
aryk29: A Pitting?
aryk29: It's actually an MPSIMSing. :p
flamsterette_x: No, but how certain people can be about info and cites. Which are all very well, of course.
aryk29: Ah, yeah... do I ever know about that! :O I've come to see their point of view. though... fact-based board and all that. Even so, it is still good to be able to post stuff at OP without being ready to track down a cite.
flamsterette_x: Yeah, I've come to see / understand it. But yeah, I definitely know what you mean as well.
aryk29: Happened shortly after I joined when I got my cyberbutt handed to me. But they ended up being right - all I had to do was go outside and look - so that was a major life lesson.
aryk29: You know what's odd about that MPSIMS thread? It's had no replies since I last viewed it. :O
flamsterette_x: Yeah, I've had my own lessons from that board!
flamsterette_x: Really?! Oh man.
aryk29: My turn with - well, not really a prescience but something along those lines. :D
flamsterette_x: Okay, fire away. :D
aryk29: It's almost like I knew when to read that thread. ;)
flamsterette_x: Did I tell you about it before you read it?
aryk29: No... but right after I read it the first time, I went over to OP and saw your post in Weird Stuff.
flamsterette_x: Hah! That is weird. :P

aryk29: Haha what? :D
flamsterette_x: Nothing. You're just online again. :D
aryk29: Was I off? Thought I was just away.
flamsterette_x: I don't know.. I figured your DSL had gone kaput again.
aryk29: Maybe it did... if it showed me disconnecting, then it was out for that duration of time. I've been reading message boards & stuff off and on the whole time though, and didn't notice any downtime.
flamsterette_x: Fair enough. Had nothing from you till now.
aryk29: Had nothing to say.
flamsterette_x: Fair enough.
aryk29: So I wonder if there are any new thread replies...
aryk29: Ordinary songs that no one notices are actually creepy
flamsterette_x: Like what?
aryk29: Elvis Costello's Alison is mentioned a couple times.
flamsterette_x: Ha, even I know that one.
aryk29: What, Alison?
flamsterette_x: Yeah.
aryk29: I cannot believe I misspelled :biggrin2:
flamsterette_x: Misspelled what?
aryk29: :biggrin2:
aryk29: (Yeah yeah, so I edited my post. :p )
flamsterette_x: OH. Haha, I've done that too.
flamsterette_x: There was this time when someone quoted me, and there was the misspelling. *smack*
aryk29: Ouch.
flamsterette_x: Yeah.
aryk29: But see, whatcha gotta do in that case is do them one better: edit your post to fix the typo, then that way... their quote is wrong. Then you can accuse them of misattributing a quote. :p
flamsterette_x: Haha.
aryk29: :D
aryk29: (I betcha that'd even fly too as long as the Edit By line was included and a wink smiley after the second post. :D )
flamsterette_x: Haha, maybe. Not that I'd do it.
aryk29: Yeah, best not to, I suppose.
flamsterette_x: I'm NOT posting this on the board
aryk29: Ah, geez. :p
aryk29: (You caught me in the middle of a post...)
flamsterette_x: You don't have to do the quiz right away, you know! :P
aryk29: But if I don't, then I have to go looking for it... hey waiminnit - there are different kinds???
aryk29: I have no idea what AberHollisterAE is, but that's what it gave me. *shrug*
flamsterette_x: Looking for it?!
aryk29: Nope.
flamsterette_x: No.. what do you mean, you have to go looking for it?
aryk29: I don't intend to look for it. ;)
flamsterette_x: Never mind then.
aryk29: Hey, did you ever see the finger length ratio thread?
flamsterette_x: Uh... no.
aryk29: lemme dig it up...
aryk29: Here
aryk29: I measured mine back then, one hand ended up being typical for a straight guy and the other for a straight woman... I've since measured them again and somehow got different results.
aryk29: Also here and here.
flamsterette_x: !!!!!!! Did you read Kaitlyn's post in that thread?
aryk29: Which one, the first one I linked??? Lemme check!
aryk29: (I can't find it!!!)
flamsterette_x: Um, the second one.
aryk29: I still can't find it. Link?
flamsterette_x: Straight Dope Message Board - View Single Post - Doper women, would you be impressed with this? (TMI)
flamsterette_x: Eek. That doesn't tell you anything.
aryk29: So I was looking at the wrong thread. Okay.
aryk29: (Yeah, it does... because I read the OP and the first few replies earlier. ;) )
flamsterette_x: (I was talking about the thing I first pasted. :P)
aryk29: Heh, look at the responses! :D
flamsterette_x: I know.
aryk29: That's a fun thread. :D
flamsterette_x: I guess.
aryk29: An Anglo-Saxon poem!
flamsterette_x: Where?
aryk29: Near the bottom of page 1 of the Would You Be Impressed thread.
aryk29: So I wore my 42C to go out last night...
flamsterette_x: And?
aryk29: Nobody seemed to notice. :D
flamsterette_x: Tease. :P
flamsterette_x: I thought you said there was an Anglo-Saxon poem on that page. :(
aryk29: Nah, I just wanted to get used to the idea.
aryk29: Nope, just a joke about one.
aryk29: So anyway, I didn't have any padding in them, and I had a baggy sweatshirt overtop.
flamsterette_x: Where did you go?
aryk29: Walgreens.
aryk29: To look for one of those things that makes your waist look slimmer. But their prices are soooooooo ridiculous!
flamsterette_x: Examples.
aryk29: The ones we were looking at were $30, but they were in with the kneepads and medical / surgical stuff, so that's probably why the high price. Going to try Wal-Mart and see if they're any better.
flamsterette_x: So you were out with your parents, then?
aryk29: Yeah.
flamsterette_x: Have you talked much about this with them?
aryk29: Yeah - mostly with my mother; she's ever curious.
flamsterette_x: Would it surprise you to learn that I am also that way?
aryk29: Ever curious?
aryk29: No, no it certainly would not. :)
flamsterette_x: Yeah, that. Not that I want to be a guy because I feel out of place in this body.
aryk29: Right. I didn't think you felt out of place. :)
aryk29: Well anyway, don't hesitate to ask me anything; I'm always willing to answer questions. :)
aryk29: Meanwhile, I've discovered the joys of clear coat. :D
flamsterette_x: For?
aryk29: Nails. They're now longer than they've ever been, for the sole reason that they're not breaking off anymore.
flamsterette_x: Cut them.
aryk29: Noooooooooooo!!!!! :D
flamsterette_x: Why?
aryk29: 'Cuz I likes 'em long. Even if it gets in the way of typing; I'll just learn to keep my hands lower to the keys so that the pads of my fingers make contact.
flamsterette_x: Ah, fair enough then. I like mine trimmed. Personal preference. :)
aryk29: :) (I'm still reading the finger length ratios threads. :p )
aryk29: I must have been measuring them wrong the first time - right hand: 3 1/2 (index) to 3 3/16 (ring) now to measure the left...
aryk29: Left hand: 3 3/8 (index) to 3 3/4 (ring)
aryk29: oops... 3 1/4 (needs to learn how to read a ruler)
aryk29: so that'd be index longer than ring on both hands.
flamsterette_x: What does that say about you?
aryk29: All woman. :D (It also says straight woman, but eh umm... that's not the case at this point in time.)
aryk29: Actually it says I must have had low testosterone levels in utero. The same gene directs both finger length and hormone levels.
flamsterette_x: More evidence that you should have been born a girl, and named Erika. ;)
aryk29: Definitely, although I'd still have decided to use a different name. :p
aryk29: I suspect I still have low testosterone levels, though.
flamsterette_x: Heh, probably. Change it later on, and all of that.
flamsterette_x: Could be... any way to check for that?
aryk29: Have a blood test, which I'm sure they do somewhere along the line. I'll tell you why I think so... several reasons, ranging from mundane to TMI.
aryk29: For one thing, I don't have particularly masculine facial features, and I didn't start shaving until I was about 21 or 22
flamsterette_x: Right.
aryk29: Shall I continue? ;)
flamsterette_x: Sure.
aryk29: I think I could fill an A cup without padding.
flamsterette_x: But the C cup gives you more of a womanly feeling. ;)
aryk29: Yes, it does. :)
flamsterette_x: That is good!
aryk29: Yeah, it is. :) (Sorry, I had to get up for a minute.) It's funny because when I am in regular clothes, I usually feel kinda genderless... but I really like to feel feminine in my gal clothes.
flamsterette_x: So what are you wearing now?

flamsterette_x: Cheaper than my shipping you some. :P
flamsterette_x: (although I wonder just how one ships to an RV in a trailer park....)
aryk29: The park has a regular street address and the RV is in an assigned space number. They even give us mailboxes! :D But that's not important now... what's important now is that big huge quiz you posted. ;)
aryk29: umm, Google meme
flamsterette_x: Hey, cool! I'm not asking for the address, of course. :D
aryk29: Of course.
flamsterette_x: Not sure if there's a time for that, anyhow. Haha.
flamsterette_x: Uh..... what about it?
aryk29: I took the time to dig up all the cites and post to it instead of being in a hurry like I usually am. :D
flamsterette_x: Cites?! Hahaha!
aryk29: Yeah, cites. :D
flamsterette_x: For a meme?!
aryk29: Yeah, umm... wasn't that the idea?
flamsterette_x: Not cites, as such. But certainly links.
aryk29: What's the difference?
flamsterette_x: Eh, none really. But it's quirky that you'd choose the word "cites."
aryk29: Been reading too much SDMB is all. :D
flamsterette_x: Thought so.
flamsterette_x: Now. Duct tape?
aryk29: Read my post! :p

flamsterette_x: LJ not letting you post replies to threaded comments? ;)

That's true. I am happy for them, but... yeah.. *sigh*

aryk29: No, I'm serious. :)
flamsterette_x: OMG
aryk29: w00t!
flamsterette_x: (okay, not really :P)
aryk29: But good news nonetheless! :D
flamsterette_x: Yes! I've been frustrated because of... well, many reasons. But he never responds to emails, so I wasn't expecting this. No matter how I may or may not feel about him now, this is good. :D

aryk29: Hey - if you found and posted a quiz based on the Moir-Jessel test, I'd gladly and accurately report my results. :D
flamsterette_x: The which?
aryk29: Moir-Jessel. Tells ya how male or female your brain is.
flamsterette_x: Haha. Why don't you go find it? :P
aryk29: Very well. ;)
flamsterette_x: Only because you brought it up, hehe.
aryk29: Heard of it??
aryk29: A few of the questions I am not sure of... so depending on how I fudge them, it gives me a result (in the "born male" column) of anywheres from 45 to 90, so I can't vouch for its accuracy... but it's a fun quiz to take, IMO. (And if you're wondering why I haven't posted it, it's because of the URL. And the graphics on the page.)
flamsterette_x: The URL would be a problem, yeah. I don't wonder on that account alone. The graphics look like clouds to me... unless there's some hidden meaning.
aryk29: No hidden meaning, but it is bright pink with an icon representing TG-ism at the top.
flamsterette_x: Ah, so that's what the little thing is. Right.
aryk29: ;)
flamsterette_x: Oh, now what is THIS supposed to mean? :P
aryk29: What is what supposed to mean?
flamsterette_x: Normal Male in Overlap Range
You score within the expected bounds of the average male, but within the overlap range of 50 to 60 which indicates a thought compatibility between the sexes. Most males will score between 0 and 60.
aryk29: Read the other column. ;)
flamsterette_x: I did!
aryk29: It doesn't ask what you were born with, instead giving 2 answers. You're supposed to disregard the one that's not appropriate.
flamsterette_x: Heh.. well, at least I'm normal? haha
aryk29: Why, what'd you get? :D
flamsterette_x: Normal Female
You score within the expected bounds of the average female. Most females will score between 50 and 100.
aryk29: Do you know my mother took this one for kicks and got a score of 40?
flamsterette_x: Aiya.
aryk29: She's less feminine than I am. :p
flamsterette_x: No comment. :P
aryk29: Meh, I take it in good humor. :)
flamsterette_x: Fair enough. :)
aryk29: And there are so many threads on the subject! I'm reading this one right now.
flamsterette_x: Cool.
flamsterette_x: Maybe I can read this too? Not sure if it applies to me, but I guess I can learn? Who knows, haha.
aryk29: It never hurts to read a thread, if it is of interest to you. :)
flamsterette_x: True.
flamsterette_x: Upon reading it, I must say that I really had lots to think about that Saturday during Awana right after I read your thread!
aryk29: I can imagine.
flamsterette_x: *is NOT posting to the Gender Confusion Thread*
aryk29: Me either. I was going to, but Arwin linked to the Pit thread in hopes of not hijacking any further...
flamsterette_x: But ultimately, what I came out with was: You're still my friend, no matter what you may feel about your gender idientity. I mean, you're still YOU at the core... whether you be man, woman, something-in-between, or an alien from the planet Zoltan. ;)
aryk29: Right, and that was pretty much what Strangelove said in his (?) OP - but still it's good to hear it from ya. :)
flamsterette_x: Yeah, pretty much that. You may have heard it before, but it's good to hear it again.
aryk29: :)
aryk29: I find myself in agreement with hajario and Lord Ashtar in the Pit thread.
flamsterette_x: What did they say?
aryk29: Here.
aryk29: To paraphrase: why should one continue to read threads that bother them?
flamsterette_x: True enough.
aryk29: Especially when their response is usually a verbal *thud* sans context. :D
flamsterette_x: Yeah, you kind of need context to it, especially there.
aryk29: *yawn* that's a hard read... I'm going to have to go back to it later. *blink*
flamsterette_x: Good idea.
aryk29: It's late afternoon, and as usual I'm tired. :D Which is odd since it's sunny out.
flamsterette_x: So you're only tired when it's not sunny out. Gotcha.
flamsterette_x: I'll get back to you when it's raining. ;)
aryk29: Eh, I have a tendency to be more alert in the presence of bright light. :D
aryk29: Haha.
aryk29: Actually, I've decided to flop down for a while, but will probably be up within the next hour when food's ready.

aryk29: The question about women, gadgets, and cars I answered as somewhat true. 2 out of 3, ya know? Anyway, I see the effect that had.
aryk29: I was just discussing with another friend the possibility of designing a VB program that tests word recognition in both brain hemispheres. I think there might be a gender correlation with such a task.
flamsterette_x: I don't know anything about that. But it might be interesting. ;)
aryk29: Yeah I'd need volunteers who would take it. :D
flamsterette_x: Ha. First, you'd have to devise the test.
aryk29: I'm in the process of doing that now. :D

flamsterette_x: Despite my best intentions, I'm not going out tonight.
aryk29: Why not?

flamsterette_x: Heh, Eric thinks "booooo! I'm not brushing my teeth anymore." is a good response to that. :P
aryk29: Huh?
flamsterette_x: I was like, "I'm not going since I'm too tired for some reason." That was his response.
aryk29: Hmm, okay. So I took some more quizzes. :D
flamsterette_x: Like all the ones I had on the page?
aryk29: All except the WWE and one that I didn't understand. :D
flamsterette_x: Which one did you not understand?
aryk29: The hardcore band one.
flamsterette_x: It's okay. It's cool. :D
aryk29: k :)
flamsterette_x: So what are you going to do if someone calls you on that quiz result?
aryk29: I dunno. :D
aryk29: Part of me wants to stop beating around the bush and just be open about it. Ironically, it's the same part that is tired of trying to figure myself out.
flamsterette_x: What would happen if you were open about it?
aryk29: Probably nothing bad. I'd be concerned how others would feel and react.
aryk29: I'd want to think of the best way to say it though.
aryk29: I've also considered waiting until I have a picture ready, or waiting for a professional diagnosis.
flamsterette_x: True enough. Those things might be helpful.
flamsterette_x: You know me and nutty, though... we're not saying a thing.
aryk29: Much appreciated. :)
flamsterette_x: Not a problem. :D
aryk29: 'Cuz on one hand I could mention the BSTc and give my suspicions about mine... or I could just say something like: don't fit in as a guy, trying being a gal instead... or if I had a professional diagnosis I could say guess what I have GID.
flamsterette_x: BSTc?
aryk29: Basal stria terminalis. I'm not sure what the "c" is for but it's specifically the bed nucleus or something like that.
flamsterette_x: Ah.
aryk29: There's a cite that DocCathode keeps handy that explains all...
aryk29: ... and you'd think it'd be easy to dig up one of his many posts with that cite, but nooooooooo....
flamsterette_x: He's.. um... transgendered too?
aryk29: No.
aryk29: No, he's just knowledgeable with the subject. I didn't find an external link, but I did find this (and I am so going to read that thread.)

aryk29: True. But believe me, I'm concerned too... shoot, sometimes I scramble to get the heck out of the bathroom if a guy is in there singing or grunting (have to use the men's restroom / showers here) because I might be giving off unconscious cues that I'm "something else"... umm, guess I really have that flight response when something creeps me out.
aryk29: (and FTR, that's when I'm not trying to look like a woman)
flamsterette_x: Yeah, I guess you can never tell what would happen. Although I suppose your "flight response" would save you from some sticky situations.
aryk29: Probably.
flamsterette_x: Then again, it might not.. eh. What matters now is that you're still here to talk to.
flamsterette_x: (and yes, I *am* aware I sound like someone who's not had a dose of brain food in weeks :P)
aryk29: It's okay, really - you have every right to be concerned. :) And I would not go out alone, nor defenseless, and would make sure to be as passable as I can.
flamsterette_x: No, I don't think you would.. I'm sure you've researched this out more thoroughly than someone who has only a casual (if semi-vested) interest in it.
aryk29: To the extent that I can between internet downtime, the cat having to be brought in / put outside, and having to lay down and stretch out so my back doesn't kill me. :p
flamsterette_x: I know what you mean. :P
aryk29: Heh, I just read that post more carefully. It was commented in the January 1996 issue of Discover Magazine. I'm sure I have that issue... somewhere.
flamsterette_x: Really? Hm. Neat.
aryk29: (Although I did stop trusting the magazine more recently)
flamsterette_x: Why?
aryk29: Reference.
flamsterette_x: Haha, nice sig: "How to microwave soup: Get can of soup, Place can in microwave, Set microwave power to "high," Set microwave timer to 30 minutes, Sound of explosion indicates soup is ready."
aryk29: Whose is that?
flamsterette_x: Inoshiro.
aryk29: Ah, okay. :) Anyway, Discover tried to pawn off a 20-year-old and mostly disputed theory as the latest newest thing in science. Good news is, in subsequent issues, I have not seen that particular columnist write anything new.
flamsterette_x: Good, then!

aryk29: not long ago I was delighted to have >1000 posts, now I have 3 post counts that are in the 4 digits!
aryk29: total across all 3 is 4830 even :-D
aryk29: your 2 board total is 16393
flamsterette_x: neat
aryk29: even counting all the boards I've ever posted on, my total is still less than your SDMB post count. :p
flamsterette_x: <--- posts too much
aryk29: <--- has too much free time :p
aryk29: 1930 - 1663 = 267; 1663 - 1237 = 426... the SDMB is a relatively close second...
aryk29: brb
aryk29: made myself a rum Pepsi. :D
flamsterette_x: eek
aryk29: what eek?
flamsterette_x: rum Pepsi?
aryk29: yeah... I don't usually like rum colas, but had a taste for one a couple days ago
flamsterette_x: This is coming from the same person who told me a few months ago that (ack...) he wouldn't drink anything alcoholic because the parents would pick up on it. Nice turn-around. :P
aryk29: when did I say that???
aryk29: oh wait, I remember
aryk29: I said I wouldn't drink an entire bottle of tequila 'cuz then I'd have a lot of explaining to do. LOL
aryk29: Or maybe it was brandy
flamsterette_x: Haha. Whatever it was, I certainly remember that!
aryk29: yeah
aryk29: this one has 2 shots of rum in it and I'm halfway through drinking it. :D
aryk29: probably going to bed as soon as it's done... don't want to keep my parents awake
flamsterette_x: Heh, good idea.
aryk29: caffeine + sugar + alcohol: not the ideal combination for someone who is chronically thirsty. :p
aryk29: okay then... g'night! :)
flamsterette_x: Haha, I bet not.
flamsterette_x: Night.
