Sorry about your disappointment. I'm guessing you're in Highschool or so. If he acts oblivious, he's either nervous or just not interested, probably the latter. Try not to take this (or ANYTHING that people do) personally. If you put yourself out there and are nice, some cute boy will appreciate you.

For the first time ever, I was seeing a woman who told me "Happy Valentine's day!". It felt weirdly.... appropriate. Even when I was seeing other people, VDay was always a dumb holiday they never cared about or wished me a happy one.

Welcome dude!
I think I was about 14 when I joined the village (14 years ago). You'd be surprised how much things change, yet also how much they stay the same.
We're not particularly active now, but we do have some fresh members who pop in occasionally and have some, er, interesting things to say.

My family cat of 17 years died a few weeks ago. He had been very frail and mentally slow for the past year, so it had been coming. But when you have a pet for that long, its like losing a good friend who really knows you

This year I will make a serious attempt to curb my drinking/smoking habits. I guess I just want to live a "normal functional" adult life that doesn't involve frequent drinking (especially alone)

My car is on its way out (2001 Toyota Corolla) and I need to look at getting a loan for something newer. Buying a newer car, its a scary proposition. I couldn't be happier to get rid of it though, had it for 3 years and disliked it since day 1. I would like to get a small SUV like a respectable adult.

Hope everyone had a great Christmas and good luck on your New Year! I, for one, am ready for a fresh start and a new year.

Well its the last day of Fall 2018.

Its been quite mild, grey and rainy. I didn't do any of the typical "Fall" activities like pumpkin carving, leaf pile jumping etc haa. Hope everyone else enjoyed your Autumn.

I don't really drink liquor. I generally stick to beer. Occasionally whiskey, poured by someone else.

Dunno if Busch is available where you are TK (Canada if I remember correctly?) but here in the hometown of A.B. Busch is more than cheap American lager swill, it is a lifestyle. In South St. Louis City, there are many dinky dive-bars (on almost every block), where working class men sit and drink either Busch or Stag (which is a great cheap beer that I seriously doubt is available in your area). It reminds me of simpler times. Point is, try a Busch if you can find it. Those ultra hoppy West Coast craft beers are almost undrinkable after a lifetime of conditioning  :-X

Hello.... been a long, long time again.

Its been a rough few years  ( jesus its odd to realize....that its been years.) Since I last poped by.

Welcome back friend. It has been a while. I guess what they said about the bungie cord is true.

Thats unfortunate news about your father.

Sounds like you have the job you've been looking for. We've all had poisonous jobs I think.

We're still here. A couple new members who are somewhat active too.  Hope everything else is good.

Thank you for keeping the site alive, Chucara! I was afraid it was gone for good this time. Then what would we do?

Go to the Vestibule of course

We had an unusually early first snowfall this year, the 2nd week of November. A lot of rain this month. Generally it doesn't snow until December here. Only a couple days of frigid cold so far. Thanksgiving day was very mild. Speaking of Thanksgiving, it was very pleasant, everyone was in good health, no one fought at the family dinner and we played scrabble.

This year, I wish that Autumn could go right into Spring. I'm not looking forward to winter this year, despite being a Winter Baby. I wonder if a place with no Winter (but still the other seasons) exists? Southern Europe? The Pacific Northwest US? Parts of Australia? Maybe I should move there.

I've gone to Starbucks frequently lately. Always order coffee-black. They have some good recurring fall beans, I especially like the Anniversary Blend.

Something about the silhouette of leafless tress when driving by amazes me. I love taking pictures of them. Heres one I took last year.

It can get quite hot and humid in Missouri. In July, I went to the Florida Panhandle (Northern Florida, its a long state) expecting it to be 100F and sunny, but shockingly it was actually constantly overcast and cooler than Missouri! In FL it Rarely got over 80F and never over 85F. Compared to the 90's we have been seeing in MO from early May until the end of September. After coming back form FL I was like "I'm so over this fucking 90 degree weather!".

In the past 2 weeks Autumn has come. Cooler & overcast days. Coldfront misty rains. Nothing like turning the A/C off, cracking the windows, sipping on some quality black coffee, wrapping up in a warm blanket. Theres a certain "stillness" that doesn't exist during the other seasons. Its very refreshing. Every Autumn I get reminded of the first couple of months of school, when people are still adjusting to new changes. Of starting holiday shopping. Of buying new clothes, I really think Autumn has the best fashions too.

I often am grateful to live in a place that has natural beauty (seriously, go look at a satellite map, Missouri is very green and everything west is very brown) and all 4 seasons in full. Here is a pic I took last year at a local park.

What do you all like about Autumn? What does it remind you of?

I went (read: drove) to Florida in July. To Tallahassee, St. Augustine and Destin. In Missouri at least, when people talk about going to "Florida" they usually mean Destin. I can confirm the beauty of this place. About 10 years ago, my parents drove us to Florida for a wedding and we only stayed for 24 hours! I never quite forgave them for that and have been itching to go back since.

I'm balancing 2 & 1/2 jobs none of which are related to my degree. I'm considering taking a professional exam soon, although it only has about a 10% pass rate.

I just moved into an apartment in the hip yuppie part of town with a stripper I met on craigslist.

Life is both wonderful and terrifying at the same time as I approach the trajectory of my early 30's. I mean, its still more than 2 years away, but i'm feeling it!

Unwashed Village / Re: What games have you been playing latly?

I snagged the Grand Theft Auto collection on Steam for cheap recently and have been playing GTA 3. Its one of those games that I have only dabbled in, but have been wanting to complete for a long time.

Its one of the most important 3D games of all time, but also has many flaws (you can't jump out of moving cars, there is no full in game map etc.). As a fan of the series, I started with GTA 2 and finished all the main 3D games. I'm mostly through, and definitely appreciate it as a stepping stone from 2D to 3D. Some things were brought over from the first 2 games, like the story focus on gangs fighting for control of the city, that aren't in the later games much if at all.

I was VERY impressed by GTA V at first, but could only get about half way through before getting tired of it. The characters were overly dramaticized, and the missions very drawn out while scolding you for failing. You compared this to GTA 3, where the player character has no dialogue, is never named in game (not a compliment though), and failing a mission just keeps the game going with no pause, giving you the choice to go back and restart if you want to or just drive off to do something else. As the series got more successful, it lost its arcady roots. Its like the difference between an 80 minute comedy and a 3 hour drama.

Also had been playing State of Decay 2 on Xbox. Its pretty neat. Like a combination of Fallout 3 and Dead Rising.

Aw crap. I forgot that we are in the age of multiple platforms. I'll be on Xbox.

Yeah, if I get this, it'll be for steam. I recently changed jobs and used my unused vacation to buy a sweet new gaming rig that Liz and I put togehter. (I wasn't planning on going for a GTX 1080 originally, but I was able to snag one for $615 (US) which put it pretty much the best deal I was going to find for a graphics card for the quality. (Fuck Ethereum in the ear!) And since I got a GPU that supported 4K, I naturally had to get a monitor that did so as well. So after paying more than I originally planned, I have a rig that can run pretty much any game out there at full graphics capability.

BTW, welcome back. I find it interesting that of the three of us posting in this thread, I'm the newest member of the UV.

Cyptocurrency or not, it sucks that graphics cards are still so expensive. I remember when a top end card was $500 in like 2006, back in the Golden Era of 3D PC gaming. I figured by now they'd be a lot cheaper.

I'll probably get it on Xbox One.

After living in a pretty small town of 15,000 people for the past 6 months, I moved back to my home city. I had no intention of staying. Small town life was pretty nice though, I could see myself moving to a different (nicer) small town if I could make money remotely. I liked the quietness, lack of traffic and being a 10 minute drive from rural nature.

Been seriously thinking a lot about starting a small company of my own, and finding ways to generate "passive income". I've known for a few years that I wasn't going to work for other people for the rest of my life. I feel like the only people anyone should really be working for are themselves and God.

I need to read more. If anyone has any suggestions, ideally classic fiction thats easy to digest, let me know.
