|But people died. They died confused
I've been thinking about things and coming to some conclusions lately. One such conclusion is that I think I have trouble making a decent first impression. There's the shyness and not knowing what to talk to random people about, sure, but I also feel like a lot of my humor and various other things I say are heavily dependent on knowing me well. Patrick's got this friend I've started talking to recently, and there's this old entry in her "blog" where she's all "Yeah this Alex dude is totally gay." Also, one of Krista's friends thinks I'm gay. It's like, geez, can't a guy talk about penises without being a homosexual?! And take this old entry of mine
, for example. It was written around when I first started talking to Sarah, and she brought it up a month or so later saying she had read it and wondered if I were gay. She's a smart cookie, though, and she got that I was just having fun with the whole job search. But I wonder if I should do anything about this, or just deal with it and accept that people are going to make snap judgments before they've gotten a chance to really know me. Sometimes I'm serious, sometimes I'm silly, and sometimes I'm both!
Speaking of Sarah, we've started talking again recently and it's really nice. I don't often ask people for advice, partly because I don't like to bother others with my problems, and partly because I feel like I've got really good judgment and can figure things out on my own. But in the rare instance when I do feel the need to get someone's advice, I know I can talk to her about anything and that I can really trust her opinion. Oh, and she's fun to talk to, too. I'm hoping this is the beginning, or, erm...let's say continuation of a great friendship.
In jobby job news, I have a jobby job! Sort of kind of. I'm going to start working for the census soonish. I'm going in tomorrow to fill out paperwork and I think do my first day of training, and then next week is when training ends. I guess the week after is when I can expect to start doing actual work? Let's all start taking bets on when I get clobbered in the back of the head and dragged into someone's basement. I'll say during the second week, at night. If you're really feeling adventurous, you can take the 1,000:1 bet that a hot, nerdy girl will invite me in and have her way with me. Current Mood: Very obviously not gay!

|Electric Erection Extravaganza
Alright, gang. It seems like plans for E3 are slowly but finally beginning to take shape here. We've got some people interested and Gogita has a hotel room booked, so it's time to put out the call once again.
June 15-17. That's a Tuesday through Thursday. If you really want to go, you know the drill. Write an editorial or a review that's hopefully at least somewhat, tangentially related to DBG. You'll need a business card as well. We should probably coordinate so we don't present cards with several different designs. The business license will probably be handled by Joshums again this year. As always, please send me your articles well in advance! We have almost exactly two months until E3, which isn't really a lot of time. Please to not be procrastinating.
Here's who's confirmed or will likely go as of today:
Elzie (for just a day or something?)
If a correction needs to be made or you want to go, let me know. The more people in the hotel room, the better!
Anyway, I think that's it. Let's all band together and make this the best E3 in years! Current Mood: KRAMANIUM!

|The only way to win...is to rape
I got my blood donation card in the mail the other day. It took quite a bit longer than it was supposed to, but that's a good sign, right? My blood was used and thousands of lives were saved in the process? Looks like I can donate again starting the 12th. I teased Krista about putting it off for so long, telling her that by the time she got around to it, I'd be eligible to donate again and we could go do it together. Who got the last laugh on that one?!
Tickets for The Barber of Seville next month are being sold! I wasn't sure of going to this or waiting for Pagliacci later this year. Looking at the website, though, it seems Pagliacci is being paired with Carmina Burana? Sounds pretty tempting! But when front row seats can currently be bought for The Barber of Seville for 25 bucks, it's like, why not both? We'll see. Further research is required, as well as discussions with all of my lady friends.
Things are kind of weirdly interesting right now. I feel like I've got a lot of things going on where I'm sitting back and waiting to see how things play out. If previous experience is any indication, most likely these things will fizzle out without any sort of satisfying resolution, but the stages leading up to that are always fun. Talk to me again in a few months and let's see where the chips have fallen why not! Current Mood: Anticipatory

|I neeeeeeed your money to kill babies by abortion!
Trivia night was a huge success! My NES game collection is now up to nine games. Unfortunately, my NES console collection still sits at zero. Maybe I should set some sort of limit, or goal. Like, if my collection ever hits fifteen games, I'll force myself to go out and purchase some sort of Nintendo game playing device. We'll see.
Also! Scored myself a kickin' rad t-shirt
. Why would I want a Famicom clone or a Playstation when I could have a shirt?! Nah, I'm not complaining. Free clothing is the best clothing. No doubt this will attract ladies like flies to honey!
Pretty fun night overall. It's probably safe to say that Ground Kontrol's trivia/tournament night is the highlight of my month. Although, competition this/next month will be stiff if Voodoo Doughnut ever gets their act together and sets a date for their annual Cockfest. Current Mood: nerdy

I went to a pub quiz for the first time ever last night! The new lady friend and her housemate were going and I was invited, and being a whore for trivia, I accepted.
It was fun, though I did not care much for the theme, "Urban decay." Not exactly a strength of mine. We did end up doing alright, sitting in roughly the middle of I think eight or nine teams. Future pub quiz nights are possible, but I won't be going if I don't feel comfortable with any theme they may have.
Highlight of the night:
*music playing that I don't recognize, I bob my head to it anyway*
Lady friend: Do you like Cake?
Me: I'm a huge fan of cake. When people argue cake vs. pie, I always side with cake.
Lady friend: Okay. But what about the band?
It was Cake playing. Awesome.
Trivia night at ye olde locale arcadee tonight! Sure to go more smoothly than last night. Current Mood: bouncy

|Red car! Good point.
In some small way, I bandaged some childhood scars tonight. I went to this pub in north Portland where, every Monday night, they host a spelling bee open to anyone. I had heard about it before and been interested, but didn't go 'cause I'm lazy (and Krista never invited me, the jerk!). Anyway, I've been talking to this chick from the internet who goes to it every week. She mentioned going again tonight and I thought, hey, cool, I can meet an internet girl and
maybe replace all those bad memories of misspelling easy words!
The Bee itself went fairly well. I didn't win, which I expected, but I didn't misspell any easy words, either. I got eliminated on "metonymy," which is by far the hardest word I've misspelled in a spelling bee. For reference, every other word that's taken me down:
4th grade: Essential
5th grade: Damsel
6th grade: Sacred
7th grade: Equidistant
8th grade: Caucus
It felt nice to make it a few rounds in for once. Also, I feel like I've been getting a little lazy with the spelling. It's time to broaden my vocabulary and sharpen things up!
As for the lady friend, she was pretty cool. She's all nerdy about language and etymology, which is awesome. I had a good time for sure. There will be more spellings bees and hang-outery with her!

|I can feel his blood inside of me, borrowing things from my blood!
Adventures in blood donation!
I finally got off my ass to donate blood and save lives today, except I almost lost my own life in the process
!!!! Well, no, that's prooooobably an exaggeration. But things did go all pear-shaped.
I went through the screening process fine, got sat down, got the needle jammed in my arm, all that. For about five minutes things were hunky dory. The staff was checking up on me, I was feeling fine, etc. Then my hand started to tingle. "Surely this is the result of having the blood pressure thingy tight around my arm for several minutes!" I thought to myself. Then I had a sudden attack of light-headedness. I wasn't really sure what to do about it, so I tried lying back and closing my eyes. Next thing I knew I had a bunch of people hovering over me trying to wake me up and making sure I was okay. You know that feeling you get when you're jolted out of sleep, or you wake up from a nap, where you have no idea where you are, who you are, or what's going on? Like, your eyes have opened before your brain has had a chance to finish booting? Yeah, I got that, and it sure was fun with everyone around me like that.
I guess I had very briefly fainted, less than a minute, they said, and the doctor had to rush over to prevent me from doing damage to my vein with the needle. Supposedly I had my arm all bent and clenched up. After a minute or so I was feeling fine, though still a little confused. For the next 45 minutes I had to lie there while one of the doctors periodically checked my pulse and blood pressure to make sure everything was on the up and up. I was in pretty good spirits despite almost dying
! Then someone came over and handed me a can of apple juice. It was pretty good. I haven't had apple juice in a long time.
"Did you guys get enough blood?" I asked, hoping my whole ordeal hadn't been a complete waste of time. He told me that it was close, but they probably got just barely enough. They better have, damnit! I don't do nice things every day!
Anyway, I was finally allowed to get up and chow down on the snacky snacks I had been waiting nearly an hour for. They had chocolate chip cookies ^_^
Will I donate again? Yeah, maybe, I don't know. I've got two months before I can try again, so we'll see how things are going in April. But remember this, my friends: no good deed goes unpunished. Current Mood: Alive!
|You knowingly served me penis!
Well, another Valentine's Day, another heart-shaped pizza. Came out really yummy this year. Sadly, my plan to get drunk and do something incredibly embarrassing or incriminating didn't come to pass, as Alison invited me over to Patrick's for movies/games. We watched Batman & Robin and Class of 1999. Some fantastic cinema right there. Interesting to note that the last time I had planned to get horribly and violently drunk was New Year's, which didn't happen on account of also hanging out with Alison and Patrick. Damn them always getting in the way of drunken revelry!
The other day, just for kicks, I decided to check out some of my OKCupid stats. I've had an account there for almost six years now, and in that time, I've done the following:
Messaged 14 chicks
Received 3 replies
Been messaged by 4 chicks
Fewer than one chick per year has messaged me, and I have what looks like a 20-25% success rate with getting replies. Pretty depressing, especially considering internet dating is supposed to cater to people like me! Ah well. One of these days, one of these days.
Less than a month left of standard time. Dear President Obama, Stop being gay and fix this. Hugs and Kisses, Alex. Current Mood: blah

More adventures in baking!
I spent the day with Krista, and among other things, we got to baking up some goodies. Today's confectionary delight: muffins! Blueberry muffins to be exact, because they're delicious yet relatively simple. I'm still only a level 2 Baker, after all. Well, level 3, now. Anyway, they came out pretty well. I even took some pictures.A dozen of your finest muffins, shopkeep!There were more muffins here. They're gone now.She also bought me a rose because she's a total sweetheart and I love her ^_^
(Check here after 11:59 PST to find out how I really
feel about Krista!)
Edit: Krista is a jerk! She's a huge jerk! I can't believe how much of a jerk she is! The jerk store called and they're running out of Krista! I hate her with all my hate! HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HER!!!!
It was a pretty good day. Now I need to decide whether I should work on more difficult cookie/muffin recipes or maybe try something else, like brownies or cupcakes? Cakes and pies are still out of the question. Current Mood: Muffiny

|Wandering Bear cures vaginas
It's been a while, hasn't it? A while since I addressed you directly? I'd like to ask the gentlemen to leave the room for a moment. The ladies and I are going to have a private, intimate chat. It'll be brief, I promise. Just right this way. Close the door behind you. Thanks.
Valentine's Day quickly approaches! What do you do?
A. Draw your sword and prepare for battle
C. Enjoy a romantic night with yours truly that ends in a wildly passionate encounter
I hope you'll pick C, I really do. Any lady who does has her choice of one of the following three packages:Package 1
Dinner at a randomly selected fast food restaurant
A cock and balls doughnut from Voodoo Doughnut
A movie back at my place, most likely Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie
The rest is left up to your imagination!Package 2
A nice dinner at a romantic restaurant
A romantic walk along the waterfront
A movie of your choosing, possibly a romantic one, at any nearby cinema
Again, let your imagination run wild, romantically!Package 3
A homecooked meal or some custom-baked muffins
A brief or not-so-brief visit to any one of five nearby strip joints
I will act out any scene in any movie for you, and you can choose to video record it if you like
I feel this is my most generous Valentine's Day offering yet. You ladies would be crazy to turn any of these choices down. But, should each and every one of you choose to do so, I'm sure I'll be fine masturbating, getting drunk, and eating a heart-shaped pizza by myself.
Guys, you can come back in now. Current Mood: Romantic

|Trick or treat BANG BANG
Ground Kontrol, the local arcade here, just did their first "free play console night," which included trivia, tournaments, and...some other stuff I may or may not be forgetting. Found out about it from this new buddy of mine from game night, Hudson. What a funny name. Makes me think of Hudson Hawk. Also ran into another couple of people from game night.
It was surprisingly a great time. I threw my hat into the Mario Kart tournament just because, well, it was free, why not? Got past the first round, didn't get past the second because of how stupidly Toad's Turnpike is designed. I was in first place like five seconds from the finish line when I came up to this narrowed, two-lane area with two giant trucks right next to each other. It was impossible to pass them! sldjf;asjflasjdlaskjdfl;asjfd There was also a Goldeneye tournament, but it didn't take place until the very end of the night, so it actually just ended up being one round of deathmatch between me and Hudson. I won because I'm awesome. My prizes were a Ground Kontrol pin, a beer cozy, a copy of Goldeneye for N64, and three NES games: Dragon Power, Flying Dragon, and Kung-Fu Heroes. I've never even heard of the first two, but I adore Kung-Fu Heroes. I can't believe I actually own a physical copy of it now. If only I had an NES...
Which brings me to the highlight of the night, game trivia. There were two rounds with an additional final round done in Jeopardy style, and prizes for each round. I got handily crushed the first round, lost in a tie-breaker in the second, and just barely lost in the Jeopardy one. This is the kind of thing I would've cleaned up at in my prime, but it's been years since I took part in Nintendo trivia, so I was horribly rusty. How could I forget the third CD-i Zelda game was called Zelda's Adventure? Or that the three NES Panesian games were Bubble Bath Babes, Peek-a-Boo Poker, and Hot Slots? No no no, the me from years ago would've been so disappointed. I also screwed myself over by telling everyone Dana Plato from Diff'rent Strokes was the chick in Night Trap. DAMN! They actually had one of those Famicom/NES knockoffs as a prize. So close, so close...
But good lord, how much fun I had doing video game trivia. It's been so long. I am absolutely going to make every effort to attend every month. I just hope they continue to do it, because there wasn't a particularly huge turn-out. It was
the first time they've ever done it, so with any luck more people will show up next time and it'll end up as this cool thing to do. Gotta bone up on my classic gaming, and bone I will! Current Mood: sleepy

|Two years later
And still looking fly. Plus a bonus pic
because matching socks are for suckers.
Aside from looking sexy, I donated some shoes to Soles4Souls today. I'm also planning on donating blood sometime in the near future. Look at me, being all socially responsible, and not
because I want free food. Although I'd be lying if I said I weren't looking forward to the post-blood donation snacky snacks.
Enjoy having my picture on your friends page for days/weeks, SUCKERS!!! Current Mood: Sexy

|Can we please not talk about my penis?
So, maybe a month or two ago, I decided I wanted to learn how to bake. I often have various thoughts of "I'd like to learn how to..." or "I should do such and such," but since baking is pretty easy and doesn't require too much effort or investment of time, I decided to stick with it. I looked up a simple recipe for shortbread cookies, bought my ingredients and supplies, and went about setting a date to get to making cookies.
Krista and I already had some plans for Saturday, so I asked if she'd help out. Good thing she agreed, because I'd probably have found some way to set myself on fire if left to my own devices. The process went pretty smoothly, for the most part. At one point she did something totally disgusting that she doesn't want me detailing, but other than that, it was all good.
I liked the cookies, but they weren't mind-blowing. Aside from simplicity, I wanted to make shortbread because my grandma used to make ridiculously good shortbread cookies. I don't think I'll ever stumble across a recipe half as good by chance, so maybe I should just ask my dad if he can get me the goods. Then again, the last time I ate them was 15-20 years ago, so the likelihood that they'll live up to my childhood memories is somewhat slim. Still, baking!
Krista has this fancy book on cookies or some such that she'll probably loan me, so I can branch out while waiting on Grandma's Famous Recipe. I'd like to level up my baking skill high enough to competently make cakes and/or pies someday.
Because I'm a woman, apparently.

Well, The Great Job Search of 2010 has begun, kinda, sorta. I've got the fancied up resumé, the cover letter template, and have applied to a couple of postings on Craigslist. I think what I should do is set aside a day to be productive, where I reply to more than just a couple of posts, put my resumé up somewhere on the internets, and maybe look into a temp agency, since I've had pretty good luck with those in the past. But yes, the days of laziness and one-year-long procrastination have reached their sad yet timely end. Well, no, I guess I can be lazy and procrastinate-y about other
things. Which I am.
I watched Alien and Alien 2 today, both for the first time. Now I just need to watch one or two dozen other movies from the 80s and I'll be all caught up on my essential popular culture.
We've been getting lots of rain lately -- this weekend has been especially pretty -- but it hasn't been very cold. One more snowstorm this season and I'll stop complaining, I promise!
I haven't talked too much about video games in a while, have I? Alright, here goes: Bayonetta is great and you should all buy ten copies. Best game I've played in some time. It's always a delight when a game has a great soundtrack, as it's nice to have something to enjoy outside of the game. Honorary mention: Professor Layton 2. That Layton is a dreamboat!

|I want absolutely nothing to do with the wretched enterprise of love
That conversation with Krista about kids got me thinking about women and children in general. I decided to take every* chick I've ever been friends with or interested in and look at whether they wanted children or not. I found a strange pattern.
woman, since with some chicks it was never discussed and others I simply don't remember. Alice, for example.Friends
Lea (sprightlyinside) - doesn't want kids
Lisa - doesn't want kids
Elzie - doesn't want kids
Alison - probably doesn't want kids
Krista - wants kidsLove interests
Sandy - I'm not certain, as it was ages ago, but I'm pretty sure she wanted kids
Corinne - wants kids
Sarah - wants kids
All these girls I've been interested in wanted children. Meanwhile, I have all these female friends who don't. I don't think there's any particularly meaningful explanation for all this, but it's interesting to think about regardless.
By the way, I just got back from a second date with Cat, that chick from OKCupid. She's nerdy, smart, and cute, AND she doesn't want kids. Where will this go? Too soon to say! Current Mood: contemplative

|Say hello to the new year. Same as the old year.
2009. Not a particularly good or bad year, really. It was nice to go jobless the entire time, though it sure did seem to go by quickly. I don't like it. Not one bit.
I spent New Year's Eve with Alison and Patrick (game night buddy). Ate some pizza, played some video games, made fun of Dick Clark. It was the kind of low-key celebration I like, and it sure beat staying home by myself drinking and playing Guitar Hero. Although I was kind of
looking forward to making hot chocolate with Peppermint Schnapps. I can do that any time, though.
Then I spent the last few hours hanging out with Krista. We got into this argument over the fact that I dislike kids and she wouldn't stop ATTACKING me! She compared my dislike of children to someone being a racist and disliking blacks. What a ridiculous thing to say. So I punched her in the face and shut her up. No, I didn't actually do that, but I should've.
One day in and 2010 is off to a better start than 2009! Surely this trend will continue.
Pretty much everyone I know is offering to help me find a job in one way or another. I should probably take advantage of that. Resume to be updated by the end of the weekend or I'll jam a needle in my penis!

I must be back in a magical land where all four seasons actually
And wh-wh-what's this? As soon as I get back to my apartment, it starts SNOWING?! Holy crap! In conclusion, [southern] California, with its sunny, warm winter temperatures, its either-summer-or-not-summer-but-still-ga
y seasons, can rot in the deepest levels of Hell.
Can you tell I'm really happy to be back? I don't know what to do now. Unpack? Wait and hope there's some decent snow accumulation and then go play? Catch up on internets? Masturbate furiously?
I don't know. I just don't know.
Edit: So I just went for a semi-brief walk in the snow. It's a little too wet and slushy for there to be good accumulation, but it's falling pretty heavily. It's like the kind of snow you see in TV shows and movies. So pretty!
Edit 2: Went for an extended walk. In retrospect, it was probably not the wisest decision I've ever made. I'm a little sick, and walking back my socks got all wet from the melty slush. If I wake up dead from pneumonia tomorrow, tell my wife I love her.

Today is Christmas! Merry Christmas, everyone. I love most of you. The rest, I'm indifferent toward.
My stint in California is roughly half over now. Can't wait to go back. It's all like, sunny and warm here, blech. It's actually supposedly sunny back in Portland as well, but at least it's not sixty-some damn degrees.
I think I'm coming down with a cold. Stupid people being all sick around me. Crossing my fingers that I'm not too sick to hang with Elzie in case she's free on Monday!
Here is where I post what I've received so far:
A $25 gift card to Barnes and Noble
A $25 gift card to Amazon.com
A ridiculously fancy car radio that plays damn near every format ever. I didn't even know these things had SD card slots. The future truly is now
A ton of cash, unfortunately likely to go toward car maintenance/repairs, depending on whether the guys at Midas are trying to jew me or not
A basket full of candies and...extra virgin olive oil?
A webcam. While I like the idea of a webcam in theory, I have little practical use for one. But I suspect it's just a chance for my mom to rope me into talking to her more. Who wants to watch me fap on cam? Who wants to PAY to watch me fap on cam?
Quite possibly my first Christmas ever where I didn't receive a single article of clothing. But there yet remains the traditional post-Christmas Christmas shopping. I think I'll ask my brother for a gift card to Gamestop and...actually, that'll be it, I guess? I have to buy everyone else their

|Use the meat cleaver, and swing hard to break the bone
What a shock, all that nonsense about a snow storm coming and freezing rain on the roads amounted to nothing more than a little bit of rain that Saturday.
Had a pretty busy weekend. Friday wasn't too eventful; Krista and I hung out at her place all night. On Saturday, I got dragged clothes shopping/selling, but it was okay because she bought me pizza and a soda. (Yeah, that's right, it's a pizza party!) Then we headed off to her friend James's for the yearly Christmas party.
This would be my second year attending. I don't think I wrote about it last year for some reason, though. Anyway, I skipped out on the White Elephant gift exchange last time, so to make up for it, I went all out and brought a Street Fighter IV
cozy for one lucky party attendee. Sadly, it was the second-to-last gift to be chosen, so there wasn't a whole lot of fighting over it. It also wasn't the only cozy there, which I was expecting. er, I was expecting there to be more than one, that is to say. I ended up with a bunch of candy, a smallish bottle of liquor, and a $10 gift card to Fred Meyer. One of the best gifts there, as far as I'm concerned. Then we all stayed up way too late playing a custom game of Apples to Apples.
I had to party in moderation, never in excess because I had big plans today. Well, not so much big, but plans nonetheless. At about two I went into downtown to meet up with this chick with whom I had been messaging back and forth on OKCupid. We wanted to do something casual, so we agreed to meet at this sort of art gallery/internet cafe/etc. place to play some chess and chat. Something about the idea of a chess date really amuses me, and I mean that in a good way. After two games, we sat around talking about various things for a couple of hours. She was pretty cool and kicked my ass in our first chess match, so provided she's interested, I'll see her again.
And now I've just been packing in preparation for my flight back to California tomorrow. I'll be there from the 21st to the 29th. bbbaaarrrrffff. At least this year there isn't a catastrophic snow storm making a mess of my plans. Although there is supposed to be snow tomorrow, but only at high altitudes. But we all know what happened last time I listened to weather.com, so...
Hey Elzie! I haven't called you in forever, so I'm not sure if the number I have for you is current. Is it 951-640-xxxx? Current Mood: California, ugh

|Look at how loose his pants are!
So, I think over the summer we tied an all-time record high as well as breaking the record for consecutive 90+ days. The past few days, we've had lows getting into the single digits, which I'm pretty sure have gotten close to, if not tied/broken the record lows. Yep. Climate change is a real sham. Nothing to that at all. What's a real shame is that it's been dry as a bone during this deliciously chilly ARCTIC BLAST.
But! If weather.com is to be believed -- and why would I let repeatedly inaccurate forecasts stop me from believing this one -- we're expecting our first notable snowfall of the season tomorrow night! WOOOOOO! Maybe an inch if I'm lucky, more if I'm super lucky. Probably won't be all that impressive, but once the snow gets underway, it's time to get giddy like a schoolgirl and wait for that one big storm that'll have me falling on my ass like an idiot as I frolic through the white, powdery goodness.
Unless said storm hits while I'm in California. Then...there will be tragedy, there will be blood... Current Mood: excited
