“One dies so another one can live. A fair trade.” Sin City? How the fuck do you guys get so good at quoting.

So, in lew of my disaster with Hilary, Ryan and Batman are friends. Pretty neat stuff, I guess there is this weird balance to the world that makes things work. I can now do a one stop shop at Apple Monarchy, Or maybe I should change it to The United Nations of Fruits and the Bats that Eat them (UNFBE Unph-Bee)Also, What I did was inexcusable. Sorry that I did it, But I’m done with you. I cant stand around thinking that people hate me, and you dont like me anymore so I dont really know why I’m writing this. I am though. I’m over it, I bounce back easily. I’m still going to take all the hypocritical things you told me to heart. I’m going to ween off complaining (Which you told me I was doing good at, but when one is searching for things to mudsling they dont really see the date of the before mentioned mud). I cried myself to sleep last night, wanting to die (like the rest of that week). Yet, I dont know if its just kickass Battlestar Galactica and Work out or an epiphany, I want to live.I just let it pour, hung out with Laurel and grovelled. Shes a good person, I’m willing to pass everything off as mistakes and let my gaurd down. Which is actually a really stupid thing considering how all my bestfriends fuck me over in one way or another.

I’m done, I’m over. I’m new, I’m going to make my life better.

I’m going through restructuring in my life. I’m going to start being a vegatarian. I know some of you think that its stupid, or I’m just doing it to be cool, but I’m really not. Anyway, Abi let me borrow the for dummies book, and it seems pretty easy to get meat out of my life. I’m going to be a Lacto Ovo vegetarian, which means I use dairy products and eggs. I also hope I can get started by the end of the month, wish me luck!

Also, concerning Abi. We’re going to be starting a new comic soon! Its basically going to be a omage to all of those crappy teen fantasy shows that all of us know about. I hope it will be as funny to you guys as much as it is to me.


Magic Hair

Posted in Abi, DnD, Hair, Julia, L.E.A.I.G, Laurel, Renee, Sara by Bryan on July 23, 2008

This all started sunday. Abi and Laurel come over to snip my luscious locks off, while watching the first season episodes of Charmed. Thats when I got lucky hair. Its like Abi’s scissors are made of gold and they snipped away the bad karma I amassed in my past lives. My hideously long and mullet prone Shag haircut is now gone, replaced by a more modern Fade with a kick of spice! First stroke of good luck? Great deal at K-mart. Sure, K-mart is the armpit of the super-market industry, yet you can’t argue with the major deal of a five dollar indie-styled, faux layered (they have long sleeves under a button up tee) shirt, and plaid beachcombers to boot. Then, I saw the League of Incredibly Attractive Indie Guys, not once, but twice! First time walking through uptown, past starbucks (the oasis of the dry county I live in) then, near the square, which is older then the rest of the township.
No lies, No four leafed clover, No rabbit’s foot, this is all in the hair.
In other news, Dungeons and Dragons tommorow. I’m preparing comebacks for my ultra douchie dungeonmates. Sara, Renee, and Julia. Sara is the usually cool DM, but last game I saw a relative favor over the fairer adventurers. She knocked my character out, and then right after, gave all the hard earned loot, that I earned. Story is, our group went into the Drow dungeons to destroy the Drow King (I dont know if this is adherent to Forgotten Realms lore, but we dont care). Well, here Renee (Half Fae Druid who likes to make me feel stupid for sparknoting Huckleberry Finn) and I (Gnome Bard) were accompanied by 4-6 no name npc and loads of Drows. I grab fire beads that I earned earlier (On a one on one battle with a Giant Zombie) and flung them toward the Drow, annihilating all of them except one, the King. The round plays out with Renee attacking the king, but failing miserably seeing as she wasted two levels in Half-Fae. I use another bead, and the king is kaplooey. Anyway, we were returning to the quest giver, who fancied Julia (Changling Psionic Warrior, who is generally a dimwitted person) for reminding him of his granddaughter. First though, He knocked me out. I repeated, “Give me the treasure” rapidly, since Sara wasnt even registering the fact that my character was doing anything. So, the Grandpa waltzes upstairs to give all the loot to Julia. Which, just my luck, was stuff that her character wouldnt even use, and stuff my Bard naturally was good at. Joy. I still get a slice of the cake, I get elven chango candy. It changes me into an Elf. Now, my gnome has been blue balling life, since gnomes arent the most attractive of the races. So, naturally, Julia and I get our wild thing on.
Pretty much that happened, and the rest of the game was us going on a wild goose chase on a quest Sara made up. Of course, my opinions being ignored, and quest items being kept from me because it was fun for them. New girl and DnD Vet Ganna is coming in. She totally has my back. My plan? Warn them how I feel, and if they continue, I’ll blow that up with the remaining firebeads I own. Then leave the group permantly.
