1) Before the Devil Knows You're Dead: Possibly the most depressing movie since House of Sand and Fog. I was expecting hijinks, man.  HIJINKS.  Not nihilism! 

2) I still feel a little sick to my stomach from seeing that.

3) On several people's recommendations, most recently rattsu, I got Guild Wars.  This wins over WoW because I don't have to pay a subscription, nyah.  I know buttfacemakani has it, anyone else? 

4) I feel a general air of malaise today.  I did a lot of work and this may be the first week I have a full forty hours clocked by the end of the week, which is yay.  My cat is starved for attention.  I have been wondering a lot about why it is okay for guys to be creepy to girls, but why girls are made to feel like bitches if they tell the guy so. I think we need to change it.  If someone is a jerk, why are we told we're being jerks if we are assertive?  Girls are made to feel like they can't be assertive and have to brush guys off without saying what they mean.  I think this leads to people thinking that they have to be passive-aggressive to not be labeled bitches, and this is bad. 

5) I finally saw the one episode of House I've missed this season. Dear writers and networks, please settle?  Or is this going to be like the season that Sports Illustrated had to make up what happened for a whole year of baseball?  Come on, guys.You can do it. 

6) I had a disturbing dream last night about marrying a boy I went to high school with who turned out to be an abusive jerkface. I think I had an affair with someone else but I forget who.

7) My parents' sofa is more comfortable not-pulled-out than it is pulled out. 

8) i have several drawings I need to finish!

9) I actually have New Years' resolutions this year, but I'm not posting them.  They are a little too personal for that.

10) There are some things about my family I have been deeply pondering.  About my place in my family and my voice and its importance to them.

11) Love you all.

12) ETA: When I say this was depressing, I mean it was soul-suckingly depressing.  Like there is not an ounce of joy left in my bones.  Ow.

I has WoW :(

And I love you too :3

Peace,
Rotae

I love you extra much! Especially when you road trip to NYC.

I'm on Dath 'Remar... I didn't know you had WoW!! What's your server?!

Peace,
Rotae

I'm Alliance on Farstriders and Horde on Feathermoon. Not with you. :( But if you start a new character, let me know and we can be server-buddies.

#4, yeah, I feel you...

Have you seen "The Hours"? Not as extreme as "House of Sand and Fog", but damn, it depressed me this evening.

Nope! Have not seen! Do not want another depressing movie for a long, long time.

Oh god, yes. It was depressing like WHOA. It was so good though. I really liked it.

Oh man I HATE this. Even more because I see it in myself. Too afraid to be seen as pushy or bitchy, so I end up being super passive. I think this shall be a new New Years resolution! Be Assertive!

I actually told off a guy for being creepy a few days ago. And he got all offended, like I should be flattered that a middle-aged man was staring at my tits. But I see it more and more with friends who think that even if guys are being jerks to them, they need to be nice back, and that's not cool. If someone's being a jerk, you shouldn't have to worry about coming off like a jerk.

I have been wondering a lot about why it is okay for guys to be creepy to girls, but why girls are made to feel like bitches if they tell the guy so. I think we need to change it. If someone is a jerk, why are we told we're being jerks if we are assertive? Girls are made to feel like they can't be assertive and have to brush guys off without saying what they mean. I think this leads to people thinking that they have to be passive-aggressive to not be labeled bitches, and this is bad.

God, thank you. I generally don't initially knock the guy off his pedestal worshipping at first, because I don't want to alienate someone I want to be friends with, but when they get too aggressive, God, I just have to tell them to BACK OFF.

Hell, be assertive! There is nothing worse than passive aggressive bitches...

And boy I understand about depressing movies. Dancer in the Dark nearly killed me. Soooo good, but sooo depressing.

Which version of guild wars did you get? There are three campaigns you can run when you start a character after all, Prophecies, Factions and Nightfall. I guess they are bundling a lot of things together right now though...

The only one mine would let me run is Prophecies-- I tried the other ones and it wouldn't work?

And don't forget that if a girl makes the first move she's almost automatically creeper or a stalker!

I've got it. You'll probably find me online as Jaida Marr, my W/D. I've got one of each class though if you need help from a minion master, healbot, etc.

I completely fail at replying to comments on this post! Cool, My character is Cara Artimodaes, but I haven't gone to searing yet, I'm trying to get through as many quests as possible pre-searing.

4) I know, grrr

11) Love you too!

I definitely need to work on my assertiveness issues. It's not just with men (actually, I have the easiest time telling them off), but with people in general. I'm always afraid I'm going to come off as some entitled bitch if I complain about the slightest things, and I shouldn't.

I will avoid all the depressing movies you listed. I am not good with depressing movies.

Also, the writers strike needs to end. That is, the networks need to pay them. I am going nuts over here w/o my TV, and I'm still pissed that they couldn't show The Office Christmas episode.

I LOOOOVE YOUUUU!

Dude, there were new eps on ABC today. It was like, what is this shiny thing coming out of my television?

Who?! What?! Dang! I will have to look this weekend!

Grey's and Ugly Betty were both new! It was like Christmas!

4. Possibly this part of the same thing that tells girls/women that they should be flattered if a guy is acting creepy towards towards them, because after all, isn't his interest such a compliment? Even if he's showing his interest by harassing you?

5. Someone who watches more TV than I do and thus knows more about current programming should totally make up a bunch of summaries of next season's shows.

a) I think we've figured out what we're going to do about Bloomsdale avs! It looks like we're going to use heads from the pictures on 1950s sewing patterns.

I tried GW for a little while, but couldn't bring myself to leave my beloved Everquest 2, which I suggest you try (you can get a free trial version alas, the full version also comes with a subscription).

Hope you had a good Christmas and New Year :)

Sadly, I don't dare play anything that requires a subscription for the full version. The reasoning behind this is to keep me from spending more money by doing things like going to the movies every time I have two free hours, because I need to shore up my budget. So no EQ for me.
