exhausted, tired, Azzsleep

morning.

Crashing soon.

Just got a very weird ICQ message from some random character asking help with decoding the following English phrases:

what means: oh my gosh, i can´t get rid of you

and

and then she wrote i just hug my dog meanwhile
Blör: (12:48 AM) what means hug?


Here. Have a transcript.

96598306: (12:44 AM) hi
Azure Lunatic: (12:45 AM) hi?
Blör: (12:45 AM) can you help me with some english words please?
Azure Lunatic: (12:45 AM) I guess. I was just about to crash for the night though.
Blör: (12:45 AM) what means: oh my gosh, i can´t get rid of you
Azure Lunatic: (12:46 AM) Um.
Blör: (12:46 AM) um?
Azure Lunatic: (12:46 AM) "oh my gosh" is an all-purpose exclamation
Blör: (12:46 AM) oh
Blör: (12:46 AM) and the rest?
Azure Lunatic: (12:47 AM) "I can't get rid of you" would imply that this person was trying to lose you but was failing miserably.
Blör: (12:47 AM) oh
Azure Lunatic: (12:47 AM) does that help any?
Blör: (12:48 AM) yes thank you!
and then she wrote i just hug my dog meanwhile
Blör: (12:48 AM) what means hug?
Azure Lunatic: (12:48 AM) that doesn't make any sense when taken out-of-context.
Azure Lunatic: (12:49 AM) Hug = embrace
Blör: (12:49 AM) mmm, but thank you!
Blör: (12:50 AM) good night
Azure Lunatic: (12:50 AM) goood night.
Blör: (12:51 AM) here it´s 9:45 in the morning :-)
Azure Lunatic: (12:51 AM) here it's getting close to 1 in the morning.
Blör: (12:52 AM) oh


Weird. I tell you, Stuart, it's those aliens!

At last....morning!

Not much in the way of sleep. Bumbled out of bed at 5:27 as usual. Got shower. Sister's car is most likely toast. She was going to take it to the shop today. Oops.

Had breakfast with usual suspect. I am developing a taste for RPG's, if only the see-this-isn't-it-nifty aspects.

He looks really cute without that beard. I like it. I hope he doesn't decide to cut his hair. Long hair on guys is a necessity.

vast quantities of nothingness

I want to be in a position to keep the mean people in the world from being nasty to the rest of the world someday.

That's all. I think that's enough.

I want to be published, too, but ... I've been writing less lately.

Not sure whether I've been thinking more or less. Less frivolous thought, to be sure.

Finding Mr. Wright

...No one could, so class was cancelled. :)

Conversation in hall: "Have you found Mr. Wright?" "No, have you?"

Lock, stock, and copyright.

Been meaning to read Michael Moorcock ever since his books were mentioned in such a fashion in Children of the Night.

This morning I sat down with the One True Gentleman for breakfast. We usually end up reading if there's nothing pressingly important that needs discussing. Today I was in the middle of my usual textbook, and he was in the middle of some D&D manual. I inquired when he giggled, and before I knew it we were sitting close together (but with at least a foot of space between us) reading the same book, with him pointing out the highlights.

This would be a guide for putting Elric and friends (and, apparently, enemies) into the D&D world.

We sat there giggling over the thing for about two hours. It's great to have friends.
