6 Things I can't Do Without
black pants, black cats, black boots, apple phone, apple computer, apples.
"Aw fuck, no, I can't"
Based on how much she likes apple products. Does anyone feel this way or is it just me?

Of course not.
Who could resist an open invitation to a birthday party?
The cake wasn't a lie. I went and realized that it was basically what I expected. However, I was the only one that went from craigslist. Actually, everyone there knew everyone else.
Wtf craigslist readers? Total let down on your part, but I had an interesting enough time.

I find myself drinking from a broken glass, and in there lies the ingredients of a Manhattan. It's satisfying. It does the job, and well, it's the only thing I can create with the ingredients I have left. I already finished that bottle of Gin.
My landlord is sitting beside me, telling me how facebook and twitter users are all antisocial and socially inept according to a news post. Approximately 12 hours are spent on facebook by average users he says. I spend about 5 minutes per week I estimate. I don't even try to avoid people anymore. Now it's just that I've got nothing to do on that site besides updating my status and telling a couple of friends what I am up to.
I've done a lot of strange things lately. My posts on craigslist are mainly to blame. I have no inhibitions when it comes to that stuff.
1. I was wondering if I was the only guy in town who isn't studying anything and isn't employed. I doubt this is the case. And if your in my situation, you have a lot of free time and are getting stupid bored.
This is why the league needs to be created. If nothing else, being bored with someone else is better than being bored alone. Hopefully we can get a larger group together and by the power of our atrophied minds we can come up with something worthwhile to do. All are welcome.
Hurry, before I convince myself that a Star Wars marathon, Cheeto stains, and tighty-whiteys are all I need to reach my next goal in life.
2. Do you too have absolutely nothing going on this weekend? Do you frequently find yourself lying in bed, staring at your ceiling, bored out of your fucking mind? Has your search for novelty slowly died with the reality of a working life? Well, I've found just the cure for you!
I am in a position fairly similar as the one just described, and not for lack of activities. I've been here for a few months and am just looking for someone to spend some time with. So, if you've got the free time, then hang out with me.
3. Ever known someone that could lie to you with confidence that you wouldn't think twice about it?
I have, and I'm not trying to sound all dramatic about it. I'm really putting this ad up so that I can get better at lying.
I want to start a relationship with someone, male or female, that's based on lies, or at least some truths between a majority of lies. If you get nervous every time you tell a white lie, then you should message me.
Pretend to be someone else, have a different history, a different life, all for the sake of learning more about what works and what doesn't. I'll be out of Texas in about a week anyways, so it's not like it'll matter.
Yes, I'm out of ideas. Looks like alcohol is the only person to turn to. He serves me well enough. Most definitely a he. So I've come full circle, a bit earlier than expected, but my goal has been accomplished. I forgot to mention that I stopped drinking for more than a month. I no longer craved the drink, but I figured why the fuck not. At least it makes me want to do nothing.

Pace - I like to care about every turn, which wasn't happening in the later portion of the game when I was established. This is also an issue with AI that will probably be changed, but I would just skip turns to build my city or research, endlessly.
Multiplayer Experience - I tried to play a game online tonight, but to no avail. I couldn't even tell whether or not anyone could read my messages in the lobby #elemental. I could not play 1 vs. Player, or 1 vs. AI, so I can't comment much on it. I'll try later.
That's all for now, I'll comment on the Empire and Event Trees later.

Computer Specs -
AMD Athalon(tm) II X4 620 Processor 2.59 GHz
Nvidia 8800 GTS 640 MB Graphics Card
A790GXH ASRock Motherboard
Very Typical Errors:
DX Error - Invalid Call. Occurs when I alt-tab back into the game every time without fail.
Event - Dark Concoction - Full text can not be seen and I was given the option of Will I ------------------ Incomplete text. I said yes and now I have some awesomely powerful potion that does something, but seems pretty evil. I just have no idea what it is or what I should do with it.
Money issues - Sometimes I'll notice I'll have enough money for a purchase, and I'll agree to the purchase, and it might send me into the negatives.
Things become invisible. If I'm lucky it'll will appear again when I move to a different city and back.
Loaded up an old game: I had no tiles to build on, so I deleted a garden, and replanted one somewhere else, deleted another garden, and it froze. This problem only happened once though.
The HUD: It seems great, I like the openness and the fact that the buttons don't clutter my screen like old school Starcraft does, what with taking up about a fifth of the screen. That said however, I don't find some things intuitive. My city and people tabs in the upper left hand corner especially - About this particular topic: Sometimes my cities will pop up and show their growth, seemingly at random. I don't understand why sometimes it's highlighted and why sometimes it's not. Perhaps it's my lack of understanding.
Another thing I'd like to see more of in the HUD - Going back to the city and people tabs, I would really like to see a rollover text of the name, or keep a name next to it, in fine unobtrusive text. Once I've got 5 cities or so going, it can be a task of going to the one I've been focusing on developing, and to deal with it I find myself going through each city to get back to the one I was looking for.
Gameplay Issues - Grouping characters and attacking big enemies, like the bone golem: It seems like everybody at the farther end of the group gets killed, while some don't even get a scratch. Just seems a big unfair to see General C. chillin' in the back as his soldiers charge a massive golem, leaving him last man standing to give a quick finishing blow and claim all the glory.
I'll be commenting on other portions of the game later. Good luck with the fixes and updates.

In all my gaming experiences, never have I been so cracked out excited about what is to come with Elemental: War of Magic. I will be testing out the beta and providing the company with my own perspective on how to improve the:
1. The HUD
2. General Balance
4. The Empire & Event Trees
5. Performance, Stability, Bugs
AND YOU CAN PARTICIPATE TOO!!! Just tap the inside of your elbow a few times, pop up a vein, and head on over to http://www.elementalgame.com/ to grab a fix.

In about an hour, I will face the first test of the worst/hardest class I have encountered during my education at the University of Florida. That class... is Structures.

Lolz tehee shoot me. I rarely use LOL. ANYWAYS, I'm stuck in my structures TAs room still waiting to learn what Shanker was originally trying to teach. I really wish he'd actually show up. Well, at least it gives me time to enjoy my no-knead bread.

In search of free v o i p I am left empty handed. But as soon as gizmo 5 comes out i will be able to use v o i p. In the meantime i am using photoshop To play with my phones capabilities. The following picture is a nazi-like picture of ben, Which is in sharp contrast to the jewish scarf he was wearing before.

So right now i'm talking to my phone. Not typing, just speaking. The nexus 1 transcribes all of my words, and it does a really good job. Well, what happened today?
I enjoyed my classes. But the highlight of my day was when i want to the comic club, or when I baked bread. This time, i used parmesan cheese on the bread.
Well anyways, it's getting late than i should go to bed. Maybe i can upload a picture.
