Yet Another Reason to be an Angry Elf

Ticketmaster.
On April 14th, instead of being on the dance floor at the Franz Ferdinand concert - I will probably be on the train all angried up.
If anyone can give me a logical reason as to why it's okay that a concert sells out at a pre-sale, please feel free to pass it along.

Currently listening to: anything but Franz Ferdinand or Death Cab for Cutie.

GTalk from GMail

Tonight I have discovered that the new feature GTalk from GMail by Google is like a Horror Movie.
I've been using it now since last week Friday and I was all over it!
Until tonight...

Smiley faces =)
Winking faces ;)
Sticky out Tongue faces :P

...All rotate in the most nightmarish Exorcist manner I've seen since the Exorcist!!!!!!!!!!!

It gets worse! The tongue turns pink and the winky face actually winks! Scary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Giant Castles Give Me The Jibblies

I hate giant towns and I hate giant castles even more. It's no secret I can get lost in a circular room or cough.. St. Marks ..cough and that counts for virtual castles too. And if you're so damned rich, why not fix the mouse hole in the left tower instead of trying to hide it with ugly clay jars? At LEAST put some valuables in the clay jars so that I may steal them...sheesh.

Here's what I learnt so far from Dragon Quest VIII:

The thought of being tortured at dawn is not fun. Also, finding out that The Cheat is throwing an after-torture party and inviting all to it and encouraging them to bring eats is also not fun.

Prince Charmles is a stupid name but quite fitting of tubby, ugly (tubbgly?) prince with a lisp*. Note: *Married = Mawwied.

You just don't mess with Jesters. I suspect though, that only applies to Jesters who don't wear the trade mark Jesters' hat. I was actually confused as to why he was called a jester... no j hat = confused me.

Angelo is goo'd looking.

It's not exactly something I learnt but more of a 'let's try not to think about it' kind of situation. Witches and sirens can occasionally 'give you their best puff puff' - the screen then turns to mountains, birds...and hearts surround your character's head with the tagline "you get a big grin on your face and you become absolutely enthralled". What's funny though:

1. A Witch tried to do that to my girl once but my girl laughed triumphantly that she stacked better. Lesbian? It's highly doubtful. Not that there's anyting wrong with that.

2. I'm (and I play the main male character in the game) often not impressed by the puff puff. Gay? Well... Angelo IS goo'd looking, afterall. And there's nothing wrong with that.

On Dancing:

1. I dance a little bit like Carlton Banks. Snap those fingers - Yeah!
2. Yangus dances like he's a fairy. A really fat fairy. And I thoroughly enjoy watching it.
3. Jessica's been wearing the dancer's outfit for hours but she still ain't got no flava'.
4. Angelo dances like the coolness he is.

And when you find a Zombie Mail and its description reads: ill fated suite of armour... despite how alluring the 42+ defence sounds to you - DON'T PUT IT ON. You can't rock it like nobody's buisness. It rocks you. And costs you 750 gold pieces to unrock.
