I do. Sometimes there's wonderful things in there.

For example, if you never read the manual for "Grim Fandango", you'd have missed this line: "Everyone who smokes in this game is dead: Think about it."

I was quite devoted to reading manuals, but then I tried memorizing the controls from Microsoft train simulator, and, well...

Now I just read the introduction and weapon descriptions.

*extracts himself from the hug(s)*

I never said that you were. I was just making a sad face in response to your general anger.

Alright!


And for some reason, that smiley cheered me up to no end. I'm no longer angry at you, brother.

Still, I'm still worried what might have made Uncle stepsie so mad at me.

Whoops! Sorry, my tongue must have slipped. I'm in a very strange mood today, for some reason. Normally I don't use any strong insults or curses even in real life. It feels wrong to me, and I feel guilty only seconds after using them, because I never really mean them. So I usually don't use them at all.

I changed it to "Doody-head" now, is that better?

But why does he act like he is, then?

Also, I thought he was our uncle! And now he says he isn't. It's all so confusing, I feel like I don't know my own family any longer.


Why do you all have to confuse me so...can't you see it upsets me?

Okay, what about this? We agree that "VBL" means "Véhicule Blindé Léger" ("Light armoured vehicle"), and everyone's happy. That's much more interesting than "Visible Bra/Bikini Line" what suspect "VBL" might also mean, too.

Light Armoured Vehicle? Sounds weapon-like. So Gil will be happy .

I'd never shout at a mod! Or at anyone, really. Unless they really make me angry.

But after that, I always feel guilty. Cursed be my over-active conscience...then again, I'm not really cursing it. Because it's not really a bad thing to have. I'd feel bad if I didn't have such an active conscience. But it's kind of awkward, as you can imagine.

So, I can't really be too angry at people. I makes me feel bad. Because life's really too short to be angry at people I care for.

Good stuff.


If you're going to yell at the mods, let me know. Our "traffic cops" need a good tongue-lashing!

I've decided to hunt coeliacs, for sport.
