Second, I'd like to say I'm sorry for not updating, but Latias has
pretty much said everything I wanted to. It seemed redundant to post it
Anyway, today, I made a friend.
I was playing my GBA for the last hour of class or so (Had nothing else
to do since our teacher sucks at managing time), and this girl asked me
about my gameboy. She knew I had bought it recently, as the NES SPs
just came out in the last month or so, and asked where I got it. I told
her Gamecrazy (and complained about how much crap they plug), and she
explained that it was because certain stores have product and
reservation quotas for their employees, and reward them if they meet
said quotas. Anyway, I asked her how she knew that, and said it was
because she worked at Gamestop. I was like, "whoa".
So we got to talking, and wow, we talked. About, like, everything. The
flash card, the new Kirby game, Everquest (and heard her story that
made her believe bards are the DEBIL), Gunbound, Ragnarok, P&P RPGs
(she's really into them, apparently), anime (particularly laughing
about Funimation when she brought up Naruto), all kinds of stuff.
I've met a girl gamer. This is sw33t. And don't feel threatened, Latias, she already has a boyfriend. >/
Since I'm too lazy to make a real entry, I'll just give you an AIM log.
Basically, I found a game. Was supposed to be an MMORPG wargame. It was
going open beta in a few hours. I decided to try it. Result = LAFF.
KutanMoogle (1:13:09 AM): Okay, so
KutanMoogle (1:13:11 AM): Outpost
KutanMoogle (1:13:22 AM): Is the most hilarious game I've ever played next to Superman 64
Latias101exe (1:13:26 AM): o.o
KutanMoogle (1:13:35 AM): It's not even a game yet
Latias101exe (1:13:40 AM): Lawl
KutanMoogle (1:13:44 AM): It's almost like that Moon Base thing
KutanMoogle (1:13:47 AM): But you click on things
KutanMoogle (1:13:48 AM): And they die
Latias101exe (1:13:51 AM): XD
KutanMoogle (1:13:56 AM): I have no ****ing clue
KutanMoogle (1:14:00 AM): How they managed to make it 100 megs
Latias101exe (1:14:11 AM): Unused things
KutanMoogle (1:15:50 AM): Also
KutanMoogle (1:15:57 AM): Dr. Jackal was on
KutanMoogle (1:16:01 AM): He's the guy responsible for the game
KutanMoogle (1:16:14 AM): I told him what I was playing was a steaming pile of ass
KutanMoogle (1:16:17 AM): And he kicked me XD
Latias101exe (1:16:23 AM): LAWL
Latias101exe (1:16:39 AM): Die Kutan
Latias101exe (1:16:41 AM): *clicks*
KutanMoogle (1:16:49 AM): That's
KutanMoogle (1:16:52 AM): Exactly how it plays
KutanMoogle (1:16:56 AM): You don't even have to aim and shoot
KutanMoogle (1:16:59 AM): You just click
KutanMoogle (1:17:01 AM): And they die
Latias101exe (1:17:03 AM): WOw that's sad, hahaha.
Latias101exe (1:17:05 AM): </Doc>
KutanMoogle (1:17:15 AM): I am
KutanMoogle (1:17:19 AM): Making a topic about it on LUE
Latias101exe (1:17:24 AM): XD
KutanMoogle (1:17:25 AM): So maybe we can fill it up with LUEsers XD
KutanMoogle (1:17:30 AM): It'd make it a bit more entertaining
Latias101exe (1:17:47 AM): Is there at least gun EFFECTS?
KutanMoogle (1:17:56 AM): Yeah
KutanMoogle (1:18:10 AM): Little yellow lines that're supposed to be gunfire
Latias101exe (1:18:28 AM): Awesome
KutanMoogle (1:18:34 AM): Well
KutanMoogle (1:18:40 AM): Little yellow line
KutanMoogle (1:18:47 AM): Since even SMGs can only fire one shot at a time
Latias101exe (1:19:02 AM): Are
Latias101exe (1:19:12 AM): Flash versions of "Asteroids" better?
KutanMoogle (1:19:19 AM): They're a lot more playable
KutanMoogle (1:19:23 AM): Did I mention the lag?
Latias101exe (1:19:25 AM): Lawl
KutanMoogle (1:19:33 AM): You can't do anything but stand and shoot, even if you wanted to do otherwise
KutanMoogle (1:19:37 AM): Actually
KutanMoogle (1:19:43 AM): You CAN'T move while shooting, regardless of the la
KutanMoogle (1:19:44 AM): ...lag
KutanMoogle (1:19:51 AM): You also
KutanMoogle (1:19:53 AM): Cannot jump in this game
Latias101exe (1:19:54 AM): That's
Latias101exe (1:19:59 AM): Like, earlier than Alpha
KutanMoogle (1:20:02 AM): Yes XD
Latias101exe (1:20:12 AM): If over half the features don't work
Latias101exe (1:20:15 AM): It's less than Alpha
KutanMoogle (1:20:23 AM): Oh, and
KutanMoogle (1:20:24 AM): Every enemy
KutanMoogle (1:20:26 AM): That dies
KutanMoogle (1:20:29 AM): Drops a potion
Latias101exe (1:20:30 AM): Beta 100% works, but is limited and has bugs
KutanMoogle (1:20:43 AM): Which, first of all, makes dying out of the question
KutanMoogle (1:20:55 AM): And second, potions in a wargame = XD XD XD
w00t, it's finally the weekend. This mean my parents will be getting in touch with teh latimom. Let's hope it goes well.
So, the ups and downs of today: UP: I have an external hard drive now, so I can back up my crap for when I reformat. DOWN: I am having a cholesterol check tomorrow, so I can't eat anything between seven tonight to the time when I get my blood test, which should be thirteen or fourteen hours. Bah.
Oh, speaking of eating, my Bagel Bites should be done. <3
Latias already covered this in his LJ, so I suppose it's redundant, but whatever.
Yesterday, he went ahead and sat down with his mom for a bit, and talked to her about me and my visit. I was pretty nervous about this, 'cause my mom was already going about purchasing tickets, and his mom didn't even know who I was. If she said "no kthx", the plans would be shot, and I really wouldn't know how to tell my mom, since our plans were pretty much set in stone at this point. However, she said it was fine, and everything went smoothly (which was a surprise, especially coming from his mom who thinks his 'internet buddies' are weirdoes), so my mom should be calling them up this weekend. Awesome. o.o
Man, with all these preparations, it feels like I'll be seeing him in a matter of days, but we have more than a month to go... I haven't been this excited and anxious about anything in a long, long while. Feels like counting down the days 'till Christmas as a kid... no, more than that. I don't really know how to describe it. It's almost unreal, really.
One last update before I take off: My mom's gonna call this weekend, Travis. So let the sucking up commence, and the subtle hints end. She needs to know before my mom calls and hits her with the "OH HI WERE COMING TO UR HOWZ KTHX" completely by surprise.
Latias101exe (6:55:15 AM): o.o Latias101exe (6:56:35 AM): h8 u KutanMoogle (6:58:03 AM): My mom just said

Jesus Christ on a cracker, how did I sleep so long? I slept from, like, seven to five, and that was with me taking my afternoon nap. I didn't know I was that tired. o_o Looks like my plans were shot... oh well, maybe today we can try again.
Still got an hour before I'm supposed to be up, so I guess I'll do... stuff?
