Well, for those who read my last post, I was being overly optimistic. Beth dropped me like a bad habit last night. I'm not really upset or anything, just kind of disappointed that I didn't get to have sex again. You'd figure I should be upset or angry, but I'm not. Repression is a wonderful thing huh?

Okay, to recall everything that's happened in the last couple of months would take more time, effort, and frustration than I really care to get into right now. Suffice it to say, I was a real idiot for a while, then I wasn't, then I was again, and now I think I'm kinda okay.

I got a second job. I'm going to be working at Pizza Hut too, delivery driving again, so I should soon have more money as well as "Dear god" customer stories. I'm looking forward to both. With luck, I'll be able to move out sort of on time. Either way, I'm determined to be out before the end of the year.

Also, I've met someone. Her name is Beth and she lives in providence. She's a bit older than me, and I have to say, so far, I'm smitten. I don't know if anything is ultimately going to work out, or if I'm just being overly optimistic, but I'm determined not to be the negative fucktard again. I'm not questioning my luck, just simply enjoying it. She keeps me up at night, we've been known to talk nearly non-stop for upwards of 12 hours. That's not nothing. Our conversations often turn to sex, and its made me think, do I really talk about sex that much? I probably do, but just don't realize it I suppose.

Looking forward to the new Transformers movie. Officially psyched for Ravage. I could deal without the "Twins" which aren't even the right twins (Sideswipe and Sunstreaker, hello?). Also, the Constructicons. Need I say any more? No, I need not.

You know what? Fuck it. I was gonna post about my life, but fuck it. It'd just be more bitching. No one really cares honestly.

Fuck it. I'm sick and tired of it all.

Okay, you've seen my last post. I was being overly optimistic about Candace I think. Things haven't worked out, and I realize I should have listened to Ben from the get go (and, for the record, "I told you so" isn't necessary :-P )and bailed on her sooner.

What changed? Well, for some reason, she pulled a Sarah, and decided I wasn't worth talking to. Okay, fine. She can't be bothered to expend 30 seconds of minimal effort, then I can't be bothered to drive 100 miles and 2 hours one way to see her.

She tried to blame PMS. Okay. PMS excuses only so much. 4 solid days of silence? Yeah, no. I can't be with a girl who won't put forth any effort. It's done.

On the plus side, Melissa isn't angry with me, and we've gone right back to the way it was before Candace came along.

Who's Melissa? Well, that's gonna have to wait for another post.

Okay, the majority of this post is old news for most of you, and that's fine, but Adam, Jen and Jocelyn are talking about religion and I really don't want to be part of this.

Anyhoo, it's been a while since I posted, so here goes:

I quit smoking. It's been hell so far, but I'm dealing. Makes me a little frightened about how bad second-hand smoke really was, because it helps my nicotine cravings! Weird. I'm trying to get my brain to associate the endorphine rush of lighting a cigarette with popping a candy in my mouth. So far, it's not working.

So, why the hell would me, smokey the nerd, quit smoking? What could possibly cause me to give it up? Well, her name is Candace, and for some inexplicable reason, she likes me. And before you say "You quit for a girl! You won't last!" She tricked me, true. But she has a valid point. I don't really have a good reason to still be smoking. I run out of breath very fast, I smell horrible, I'm like kissing an ashtray apparently, my teeth get all nasty, and they're EXPENSIVE! Getting worse too. (Well, that, and she's in charge of my nookie supply, so she has a bit of sway over me).

Speaking of! I've been noticeably less freaked out as of late. Brent even pointed it out. "You're much less neurotic. Noticeably less." Yeah. There's a reason for that. :-P But a gentleman never tells.

I need to find another job. It has become very obvious to me that I will never get full time. I want it, but it'll never happen. I suppose that whole "Liking what you do" thing really is a pipe dream.

My old laptop was stolen last week. I managed to get my hands on another one, and in three months and 300 dollars later, it'll be mine. And it's an upgrade.

Yeah. I got people.

My Serenity supplies went with it. So, to the asshole who has my laptop, enjoy it cocksucker! Enjoy my roleplaying supplies too! Hope you rot in a personal hell of your own making! If I ever find you, I will kill you.

As for Candace. Well, I met her via a dating site, and before you say "Red Flag!", she's really very sweet. She's much shorter than me, and she's just adorable. She and I apparently also share a brain. It terrifies Adam, way I figure, one of me is bad enough, but a female version? Egads!

Only real drawback I can see? She lives in Chicopee. Where's Chicopee? : Points NorthWest : 2 hours that way! Yeah. It's rough. Granted, not horridly distant like Jocie and Rocky, but still far enough to suck. So, what we do is appreciate and enjoy what time we get together, because we have less of it than other couples.

There's something about this girl. Something truly special. She can keep me on the phone for hours on end. We can be sitting there, my arms around her, watching TV, doing nothing even remotely sexual, and I'm happy. For the first time in a long time, I'm happy. Call me a putz if you need to, but relationships make me happy. Having someone that means so much to me is amazing. Meaning that much to someone is incredible. Yeah, I'm gonna stop now. I'm being really corny.

So, uh... yeah... That's really about it.

So now, here's some random videos I found:

The title of this post will make zero sense for anyone who is unfamiliar with the HERO system or its rules, but I'll explain. In HERO, there is a power called an Endurance Reserve, and it can be used to fuel the use of powers without tapping into a character's normal endurance pool.

I was talking to Adam the other night, and he said that he thinks I have what's essentially a Karma Reserve. My natural karma stat is hideously low, but I can use the Karma Reserve to improve my standing, but only when it's full.

Well, apparently, it's full, and just like trying to top off the tank of your car, some's spilling out. I've started working again, so I think that happened just as my reserve topped out. Now, apparently, I don't know how to actually tap into this reserve, so I'm catching overflow, because in the past week, two separate, real life women have contacted me via matchdoctor, and they seem to be intrigued by me. Don't fully understand it myself, but apparently the top to bottom mediocrity of my profile appealed to them. Note, that is not a complaint, and even if this is karma meant for someone else and it was misdirected at me, I'm going to take full advantage. One lives in Brookline, which isn't too terribly far, and she's beautiful, geeky, and asian.

The other just contacted me tonight. She's a bit farther away (In Jersey ((EW!))), but judging by her pictures, assuming she isn't some elaborate scam or setup, she is also drop-dead gorgeous. This one is tall, blonde and a model.

When did god start liking me? Did I get hot and not notice it? Now, before someone says I need to stop being negative, let me show you something.

http://www.matchdoctor.com/profile_RosieMadderer.html

That's the first girl to contact me. Her name is Yiyi and she goes to school in upstate NY, graduating this summer. To see her pics, you think, hey, she's pretty, right? Then you read her profile. She's a nerd, she attends cons, loves scifi, toilet humor and poor-man's dates, and is also quite open about what she wants sexually.
Sounds a little too good to be true, right? There's my problem. Back in Durfee, a popular girl paid attention to me, and even dated me for a short time, but it was all a set up. She'd been paid by Scott Steele, the worst bully I've ever known in my life to make me fall for her, just so she could dump me in the most humiliating and public manner possible. I wanted to die. It was the impetus for my first attempt to take my life.
Perhaps I'm being too overly paranoid, and I readily admit that that may indeed be the case (and I sincerely hope it's just stupid paranoia).

http://www.matchdoctor.com/profile_mystic19pink.html

And that, is Madyson. She's the one from Jersey, and I'm fairly convinced she's not just a well written spambot. I'm hopefully going to start some online correspondence with her, but, the pics I've posted on matchdoctor don't show me from the neck down, so I'm afraid my profile and online confidence may just sweep her off her feet, only for her to land squarely back on them if we ever meet in person. And, well, New Jersey. Ick.

Someone tell me I'm just being stupid with this paranoia and self-deprecation. I've been trying to tell myself that, but that annoying little fucker called "Self-Doubt" and his aggressive cousin "Self-Hatred" have tag-teamed to keep me completely off balance with, well, pretty much everything.

As funny as he is, I really don't want to be like Rimmer from Red Dwarf. Mr. "My Brain's rebelled! I just can't picture nice things happening to me!" Rimmer.

I must have this! It is made of both Cool and Win. I would never need to leave the house again as long as I live. 50" projected HD 360 Fallout 3 goodness ON THE CEILING! If you don't know what I'm talking about, watch it!

I. MUST. HAVE.

Way I understand, it's somewhere between 3,000 and 4,000 bucks... so, if I sell myself on the street I should be able to afford it by... lessee.... 2028.

I am now a productive member of society again, as I have been hired at Blockbuster. There was a bit of confusion with their new hiring program (why must EVERYTHING be automated now?), so it's not happening quite as quick as I was hoping, but it is happening. Turns out when I filled out the app two weeks ago, the system thought I was applying for the Sales Manager position rather than the Customer Service Rep that I was actually going for, and, correspondingly, gave me the harder evaluation. I aced it anyway, so, hey, cool. Gotta love a job that has "What home console systems do you have experience playing?" on their employment application.

I'm putting together a Champions game for, tentatively, the saturdays in which I do not go to the Space Opera game, and I'm quite excited about it. Stillpoint Cory gave me Hero Designer v3, and, if it wouldn't be weird, I could hug him. I love this program, because it does all the retarded Champions math FOR ME! I'm sure most of you know my luck with math.
