Worst part of the year:  doctor told me I might have something in my brain so I went for an MRI.  First time ever getting an MRI and they throw me right in without really explaining what was going to happen.  I guess it's partly my fault for not being more hesitant, but once I was in, I learn it's like 15-20 minutes long, but it felt like way over half an hour.  At the very end, as I was getting out of the machine, I had a mild panic attack and threw up at the imaging office.  Pretty terrible experience.

Good parts of the year: about to be blessed with another son arriving late Jan/early Feb.  Also got promoted to rake in dat extra dough.  Had a couple good trips to the Bay Area and to Disney World.  So all in all, a pretty good year.

Would it be weird to say that my most screwed moment of 2014 would've been when I got kaz lynched in SRK XVI?  I haven't been saltier than that moment.

Well, that and some of the bullshit I've had to put up with at work, that most certainly didn't help.

Blessed? I don't know, MVP honors in the Allstar game and getting put in the GoC were awesome, being able to do a few awesome podcasts, and getting to take a great trip to Shanghai works out for me.

Well, I passed all my important classes with A's (psych was my first online class anyway so I'm not too upset), and learned yesterday that I'm technically considered a sophomore after 1 semester. I'm really glad I was able to go to the school that I go to.

I'm sort of upset that I haven't really grown anymore responsible or anything like that.

Yes/No?

I don't regret playing in the GoC, but I regret having to play the first three days.

And facing GCL wasn't as bad for me as it was for him I'd wager. I had a very low opinion of him and wasn't particularly tactful in my approach to him.

I think my biggest mafia regret for 2014 was signing up for the AoT game when I had no time to play.

Highlight was definitely steamrolling as mafia in the DBZ game and doing well in the... whatever the theme of the last one I played was before PG.

Oh, and winning a bunch of Golden Crusts. That was pretty grouse as well.

Hmmm...

highlights of the year: Both my kids stayed healthy, nothing major happened in my life negatively, I got a pretty huge raise and am living life very comfortably, got to travel across country and help secure a huge deal with Kroger grocery, got to start working on some cool projects at work (iPad apps!) which kept things fresh, went to disneyland at least 20 times this last year too! Blizzcon was also awesome, looking forward to next years.

lowlights: Not much, honestly. Having to take my grandma to the emergency room as shes screaming in pain from her spinal stenosis only to also find out she had Shingles right on top of it sucked. But my year was literally nearly negative free; my neighbors blew out my front bay window on 4th of july which sucked, but they fixed it and also fixed one of my other windows (double paned which had gotten water inside) and now we're on friendly terms which is great. Either I didnt have anything bad happened or I just put it out of my mind easily : )

Happy New Year Alpha, Syn, Aidebit, & MP!

Good points: No major health issues for me or any friends or family, got an awesome gaming PC for my birthday that's been working perfectly, made progress in college, learned some about nutrition and exercise and am working towards a diet and activity amount that I can sustain for the rest of my life.

Bad points: Didn't quite hold my standards in college, still procrastinate heavily, that's about it.

And dang Pimp, that's an average of once every 2 & 1/2 weeks. I'm jealous lol

Greetings, ancient peasants from a year forgotten.

As a future dweller, I can confirm that the mathematics is correct in calculating that 2015 > 2014. So far, nobody important has died and my average alcohol consumption per minute has vastly increased.

Also post how drunk you will be on New Years Day (Besides all you family men.)

...because OF COURSE the family men shall be plowed.

Innit, @Vynce ?

...I'm having a somewhat difficult time deciding between Lagunita's  "Little Sumpin' WILD, or Founder's Devil Dancer, myself.

Will post, once the decision has been made.

Yeah, we go once every 2 weeks, sometimes once a week. Most of these trips are only for like 3 hours or so though. When it gets crowded, it sucks so we stay away... only been like 2 times the past 2 months

Heres my visit count, though we've been torn on what it actually counts. I think its times through the turnstyle? So if you go to both parks in 1 day, its 2 visits? And I think this counts for the past 2 years and a few months, since I've had this pass that long without lapsing.

I actually have to work at 6AM tomorrow, which will literally be the first time I've worked on NYD since I was a teenager.

...Buut, fuck them. Getting ready to make my first drink [signature]. I got my vaporizer which I'm glad to have started using before NYD, so it won't feel like it's some halfhearted resolution.

It burns my throat and makes me feel like I don't need to smoke a cigarette. I'm into it, so far.

I've had 2 real cigarettes over the past 21.5 hours. The last one made me antsy and my chest hurt. I only realized then that this was actually fairly typical.

Just bought VLR, actually. Played most of 999 so I hope it lives up to the expectation I've given it.

I'm also assuming that "real life" Virtue's Last Reward refers to an escape-the-room attraction or something.

Just bought VLR, actually. Played most of 999 so I hope it lives up to the expectation I've given it.

I'm also assuming that "real life" Virtue's Last Reward refers to an escape-the-room attraction or something.

999 was such bullshit.

It had a great plot, and whatnot, but every single decision was a random guess - there was no deduction to be done.

It was literally "choose this door based on because no reason or bad ending".

I enjoyed it for what it was, but it was low tier, even as far as choose your own adventure novels go.

Because most of those had at least a little bit of shading to the choices.

And by "great plot" I totally mean "by vidjah gaime standards", not Ebert.

Yeah, I can't imagine getting the true ending without a walkthrough.

I did.

Bow to me.

So did I.

...process of elimination.

I got randomed out literally every time I could, getting the True Ending last.

Fuck.

Fuck twice.

I do agree that it was repetitive. By the end, I knew the answers to all of the rooms already and kinda just held the skip button.

And Bious, the only way I'd believe you was if you haf tried every combination of doors, or just got extremely lucky.

Y'all hate way too much.

It's been a long while, but I think I got Axe, something, something, True, Safe, then True True. Kinda easy to link together what to do if you pay attention well enough.

...so... you got all of the endings before you stumbled upon the correct one?

Yeah... I don't feel quite so bad, now.
