Holy shit!

I can browse the internet through Steam?!?







That's fucking pointless!

A single action is worth more than the words it takes to describe it.

Luckily, it's not the same author (not like at my previous translation job - I did about 12 books by the same author, R. A. Salvatore - by the end he was like a personal friend... I could finish his sentences without reading them). Plus, my editor knows I hate this one, so he rarely gives me her books, but sometimes it's inevitable. Most of them are pretty crappy but this one is by far the worst. And the ego on that creature. Unbelievable!

EDIT: @Chas. Not seconded. That's way pathetic, she's trying way way too hard. And failing miserably. Though the rest may just have been even worse, I'll give you that.


You will note I said "least worst". Dodgy

Or you know.. You could drink a cup of concrete and harden the fuck up.

I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.

A man in his forties, just because some broad has just let her robe fall to the ground and he can see her boobs.

Was he looking at a woman in her forties? 'Cause if so, neither one of them is gonna be grateful "for the blessing that made all things fall to the goddamn ground." ... Before you go all beating the shit out of me and shit, ManlyGirl agrees. Tongue

See, you do know what "just rub some dirt on it" means, you just didn't know it. Tongue

Breathing - it's more art than science.

Well, since I couldn't find the "Good Day" thread, I'll post it here.


Finally moving out of the house, moving in with a roommate. Can't wait to get out of the house and be more of myself. Big Grin

RE: Ranting corner
The school term just started up! Year 12 at last!

Spent the entire 6 hour day at what could be best described as over long briefings. We weren't even shown around the new "wing" of the school so I'm going to have to spend some time hunting down my Modern History class, because we have no map this year. No map, not shown around. Recipe for success right there school admin.

First off, I'm not the violent type. Not in the least Angel

Second off, just how stupid do you think I am? That was the first thought that popped into my head when I saw gravity and boobs in the same sentence. Thought she'd finally gone off her fugly rocker... but sadly, no... (And the woman was in her 300s Laughat )
