|05:00 pm - Boring links roundup!|
I take back every negative comment I've ever made about fanfic.
Watch two new Dunkin' Donuts commercials featuring the music of They Might Be Giants.
Here are the ten geekiest hobbies. Somehow LARPing beat out (or lost to, depending on how you look at it) furries and plushies. Either way I'm weirded out.
Adventure Gaming Classic interviews Ken Williams, co-founder of Sierra On-Line talks about business philosophies, the video game industry, and how online gaming was created to amuse his grandmother.
For matt_william: Here's the link to Mario Twins.
Hmmm ... I'm surprised furries/plushies made the list. That's more of a fetish/fantasy thing than a geek thing. Or so I would imagine. Maybe it should be on the list of top ten fetishes, though.
A better title for this list might be "The Top Ten Hobbies Geeks Should Be Ashamed Of."
As to furries, they probably make up 15% or more of my social group, and that's just the ones who publicly acknowledge it. It is possible that I know an inordinately high number of them.
I have this thing about furries. Maybe the ones I know are the exceptions to the rule, but I keep having to remind them that no means no, even if you don whiskers and claws and meow at me every time I walk by.
I think if you're a geek, you can't really afford to be ashamed of much. Comes with the territory.
I've only ever had to remind one friend that "no means no" about anything. This is good because I am not very patient and I don't change my mind very often.
I don't know if I should be afraid. Some of my hobbies are on that list! I think it's time for me to take up some new hobbies. @__@
Oh, and by the way, you were very rude to me today when you did not respond to my calling your name as I saw you walking by the Willy St. Coop. Just kidding.
No I'm not, that WAS rude
That was you? I looked around, didn't see anybody, and just assumed I was hearing things. What a jerk.
Seriously, I REALLY was just joking. I was in my car so you were probably looking for someone on foot and not in a car. I thought about driving by, but unfortunately I had to get back home to help finish dinner.
by the way i finished that new amptgaurd wepon that i was worrking on at marys party every one should see it. and ill have you know iv see three boobies whiel larping thank you
Hey, I didn't make the list. Anyway, I'd like to see that weapon. Even unfinished it looked pretty rockin'.
