I am sick. I also called in to work, because Tuesdays are Baby Faces days, and being sick + hacking and coughing + upset stomach + babies = misery for everyone. I still had to go into work briefly, though, to drop off the supplies for Baby Faces so someone else could do it. Then I went home and slept.

It's happening again--I'm starting to get burned on World of Warcraft. At least, I'm starting to get burned on playing alone. As I've written here before, I don't often like playing single player games anymore unless there are other people around, and since that means they're stuck with just watching, the upshot is that I don't play many single player games. Now, you might think that WoW, as an MMORPG, is by definition the exact opposite of a single-player game, but a lot of my time playing is spent doing things alone. I'm rather leery of playing the game with random groups due to John Gabriel's Greater Internet Fuckwad Theory...so it's wearing on me. This is not a bad thing--I think I've been justifiably spending too much time on the game lately.

In fact, that very same urge led me to do something different today--learn Japanese! Slowly. I got some graph paper out and I'm learning to write Hiragana. I'll deal with actual vocabulary and grammar after I've gotten Hiragana (and possibly Katakana) down. And then I'll have to buy a tape/CD set, but oh well. If I'm going to try it, I should be serious about it.

Oh my. That strip is magnificent. And - disappointingly - true! Wow. Thanks for the link.

You're welcome!

It's so pessimistic...but, as you say, true. It's my Bible when dealing with people in multiplayer games online. Assume they're an asshole and let them prove me wrong.

Far too often, they don't.
