That's why I've only ever played Lord of the Rings Online. I started when the game was new, and many of us were playing because it was Tolkien, not because we knew anything about MMOs. So we kinda grew up on the game together. Also, I play with my husband, so he explains things to me when I don't get it (like just now I asked what a "rotation" means Wink). And he found a great "guild" (called "kinship" in that game) where no one behaves like that. We had a kin member who would take half an hour to explain everything about a raid fight before we did it. It was kind of funny. Endearing funny. So timing and some luck with that game.

Man, I miss that game. Haven't played since the baby was born.

Friend's son,

I have got to admire your guts and it is good that you talked to me before talking to your mom or the young lady in question. Yes I know age is just a number, but numbers matter, especially when they are 15 and mid 20s. No, do not try to find her on FB.

Coworker,

Nice handling of the 15 year old flirting with you. You kept it friendly, showed you were flattered, but made it clear that he should not be asking you out before he asked you out.

Friend,

Good job on the kid. He is great and I am sure is giving you fits with his flirting confidence.

I said I wasn't killing myself and I meant it. I really thought it was true.

Health stuff:
142/89, they said. Smoke? No. Too much salt? Actively and consciously cutting back since my "warning" two years ago. Alcohol? Hahaha no. Okay, blood test. Waiting on that. Meanwhile, see if it changes if you breathe like this.

134/86.

Stress, they said. Well, driving is stressful, right? And I'm moving to a new place, I guess, but I do that every year. Why wouldn't I? No reason to stay in one spot for long. Why is that stress? What else could possibly cause stress?

Life is funny sometimes.

(ETA: To be clear, I know this is a thing I'm doing to myself, but I do not know how I can stop doing it.)

I miss the old forum's rep system. You can't see who likes/dislikes your posts and why.

Who cares? People who +rep are generous and wise and people who -rep are stupid and ignorant, especially when they're the same person.

Suddenly realized something that is very strange: a shirtless man in a movie isn't even noteworthy while a shirtless woman (with no bra) gets a movie a PG-13 rating; a naked man's butt can be sneaked into a PG movie if it's comedic while a naked women's butt will get an R rating; HOWEVER, with full frontal nudity the double standard suddenly switches so that full frontal nudity from a woman is pretty common and accepted, albeit only in R movies, while full frontal nudity in men is *extremely* rare even in R movies and often is avoided for fear of the dreaded NC-17 rating.

I've been noticing this for a while now:

Why are mine and nearly_takuan's username's a darker shade of blue?

The visited link colour is slightly darker than the unvisited one, maybe that's it?

Yeah, I can confirm that a darker username means you've visited that person's profile.

Nah, there's more to it than that.

Any sort of nudity is worthy of an R-rating. PG-13 nudity is anything being implied but the camera kept above the shoulders. Stuff like that.

I'm trying to remember what movie it was that got an NC-17 for showing a woman having an orgasm. No nudity, no penetration, it was a woman getting head and the camera doesn't even show the other woman in the scene either (yes, that's right). It's just a close up of her face as she's getting eaten out and enjoying it.

And that got the entire movie slapped with an NC-17 for that ONE scene. I recommend watching "This Film is Not Yet Rated" to get a better idea of how the rating system works. Razz

I imagine it's based on your cookies rather than on your user.

Started taking Capoeira with one of my troupe-mates last night, since we each figure that having the other one there will motivate us to keep going. As we're doing various acrobatic kicks, cartwheels etc. it seems like I'm about three inches taller than my kinesthetic sense says I am. I kept finding myself having to back up. I'm guessing its because I have basically zero experience with any position where my feet are above my head.

I think it was Blue Valentine.

A man having an orgasm is a PG-13 rating though.
