      So one of my partners-in-crime, Nero, is about to start his new job. (You might know him as the guy who helps me color some dumb comic.)

      To celebrate, this week's selection of chat logs come from the few, the proud, the shamefully employed:

      --- call center
      PikeBot: Man DK isn't here
      PikeBot: I want him to be here so I can blame him for the actions of all arkasans.
      Myshu: Wha'd they do today?
      BahamutChris: Did they bite Canada
      PikeBot: The third call of the day or so today was a fellw by the name of Jerry Armstrong.
      PikeBot: I never checked his address, but there was ARKANSAS dripping off every syllable.
      PikeBot: This first thing he asks for is the number for Joe Jackson, who is the VP in charge of customer service or something.
      PikeBot: The SECOND thing he asks for, upon being told that I don't have that information, is the number of Bill Mannix, the CEO.
      PikeBot: I tell him I don't have that number either.
      PikeBot: Him: Do you mean you don't have it, or that you won't give it to me
      PikeBot: Me: No, sir, I literally do not have that information.
      PikeBot: Him: Ah would like to speak to yer supervisor
      PikeBot: Me: OK, sir, I'd be happy to connect you to my-
      PikeBot: I seriously don't have those numbers, BTW. I don't have any contact information that does not lead to a different area of customer service
      PikeBot: Him: *Incoherent garbling*
      PikeBot: Me: I beg your pardon, sir?
      PikeBot: Me:...
      BahamutChris: ... ... ...
      Annie_Felis: ....
      PikeBot: I'm...I'm not sure how to respond to that.
      Myshu: Well. I love customer service.
      PikeBot: He takes my silence as an oppurtunity to attack.
      PikeBot: Meanwhile, I'm sitting there, assuming that I heard 'alpha female' wrong or at least that it came out of him mouth wrong, but NO as he REPEATS IT
      PikeBot: Him: Ah have been given the runaround all day and I am sick you acting like the ALPHA FEMALE GODS.
      PikeBot: Him: You are NOT the alpha females, and you are NOT GODS
      Myshu: Man, was his TV set to Xena:Warrior Princess or what
      PikeBot: Me(resisting the strong urge to point out that he is at the very least mixing his metaphors): Alright, sir, But in order to transfer you to my supervisor I need to have your account open, so could you please-
      PikeBot: Him: Armstrong.
      PikeBot: Me: (OooooohKaaaaaay, I DO need that information, but it's not what I was going to ask for) Could I have the last four of your social security-
      PikeBot: Him: you may not
      PikeBot: Me:(alright, I can open up his account with zip and last name. Not supposed to, but we CAN, and it'll get him out of my hair quicker) Can I have your zip code please?
      PikeBot: Him: *gives me his zip code, sulkily*
      PikeBot: At this point my Supervisor, whose desk is opposite mine and can hear every word: Oh god, it's Jerry Armstrong, isn't it. His last four are *last four*
      Annie_Felis: Apparently Jerry is popular where you work!
      PikeBot: So I bring up his account, but he's launched into another tirade.
      PikeBot: Him: Y'all thing you're the all-important alpha female gods, but you're just a bunch of jumped up *something* who've watched too much TV WITH PARIS HILTON
      Annie_Felis: I love it when dumb people try to sound intelligent and snarky.
      PikeBot: Me: OK sir, I've got your account up here. Jerry Armstrong, correct?
      PikeBot: Him: YES
      PikeBot: Me: Alright, I'll just put you on hold for a moment, and transfer you to my supervisor.
      PikeBot: I place him on hold, dial my supervisor.
      Myshu: I'm sure he was thrilled.
      PikeBot: Sup.: Hey, peter.
      PikeBot: Me: Do you even need this guy's account number?
      PikeBot: Sup.: No, I've still got his account open from last time. Send him through.
      PikeBot: This dude called us THREE TIMES in a row.
      PikeBot: Four, actually, but he got a different center the other time.
      PikeBot: He literally called RIGHT BACK after the first one, and got me.
      PikeBot: He then called RIGHT BACK, and got poor Zach.
      PikeBot: Must be a full moon.
      PikeBot: I've got the incident number for the account note written down for posterity, this shit is hilarious.
      Myshu: So what happened, man?
      PikeBot: Oh, he blustered for about twenty minutes at poor Alex(my supervisor), was informed that the answer is exactly the same as it was the last time he called in, and then he hung up.
      BahamutChris: But what was the question? Or you never even found out?
      PikeBot: I don't even know.
      PikeBot: he never said.
      Myshu: That's rather anticlimactic.
      Annie_Felis: So okay, he calls up for help at a Customer Service center, but doesn't say what's wrong.
      Annie_Felis: Instead he just screams his fool head off at people.
      Donraj: Presumably he was tired of being ignored by the alpha female goddesses that head the company
      PikeBot: I checked his note history for lulz, he had yelled and screamed so much that a member of the Executive Escalation Team(meaning WAY high-ups) took care of all his processing herself.
      Donraj: Man
      Donraj: I wish I could yell and scream my way up to the top of the company when I had problems
      Myshu: You could've at least ended that story with a car bomb.
      Myshu: "And then redneck terrorists struck the parking lot in chauvinistic vengeance"

      ...when the right thing to do just won't line up with what you want to do? You can keep telling yourself it's your life and you should do what you want with it, but in your heart you know that's a load of horse shit. Can't run from all your problems without leaving your soul behind--can't abandon your family, no matter what's happened in the past.

      And maybe it won't be as terrible as before.
      ...Gonna miss Texas like crazy, though.

      But let's not leave this journal on a bummer note. Anybody miss some quote logs?

      DK: So guys can Sonic be rehabilitated or should they just kill him
      bionicfen: kill
      bionicfen: him
      bionicfen: head
      DK: God knows Tails has given him enough head that if it could kill him, it would
      GameQuoter: Does he even at least reciprocate to him?
      GameQuoter: I mean you KNOW Tails has two dicks also
      GameQuoter: so he's got twice the problem
      DK: No, Sonic's very selfish.
      DK: The only saving grace for Tails is that he really is the fastest thing alive.
      DK: It's basically like taking one pull off a milkshake and then Sonic is quiescent for at least an hour
      maggiekarp: apparently the comic is decent now
      maggiekarp: but that's just because they drop 4chan references and the like
      DK: See I don't consider "4chan references" and "decent" to be in the same universe really
      DK: Also the comic, I daresay
      DK: Is the PROBLEM
      DK: also Sonic SATAM or whatever
      maggiekarp: apparently they're killing off characters left and right
      DK: But my thing is, Sonic doesn't need a backstory. He doesn't need a cast. It would be like...
      DK: It would be like after Mario Three, they added like fifty new characters and they all had tits and the subtext was when mario was gonna batter one up with his plumber's snake
      GameQuoter: Only cast he really needed with Eggman
      DK: I'm an Orthodox Sonic fan, I do not believe in this EGGMAN nonsense
      DK: Fuck you Japan, that name is christing shit
      maggiekarp: what about Waluigi DK
      DK: Fuck that son of a bitch, Waluigi is fucking retarded as hell.
      DK: It doesn't even make SENSE
      DK: Wario is a pun on BAD MARIO and a W is an M upside down
      DK: Waluigi just has this fucking upside down L for no reason and these fucking genie shoes.
      papa_november: has anyone in history ever been named wario
      maggiekarp: Sephiroth Wario Jones-Waller
      DK: He's a goddamn lousy redundant pointless son of a bitch, now if you want to make a Sonic analogy imagine there's twenty of him and half of them have tits.

      (Won't be buying myself a new computer this year; gotta save up for something... well, something. Got my index finger pretty well trained to this nub where the space bar used to be, at least.)

      Well, crap.

      Just marking this day; another computer bites the dust. Second PC I've seen to the grave this year. Poor old thing died on the table (desk?), as it were, although I admit I wasn't fighting too hard to save it. It was my brother-in-law's before I inherited it this summer, and he bought the thing back in 2004.

      Maybe I should buy a new computer, for once in my life.

      In the meantime! No major data loss, so falling back on my laptop (also pre-owned, bought from the pawn shop) with the broken spacebar. Hurrah.

      Little Honda Civics are freaking awesome on gas. Mine just made a 4+ hour trip last night on a little under a full tank, and still had enough juice to make my half-hour morning commute to work.
      Need to give the poor thing a tune-up sometime, though. Comin' right up on 150,000 miles.

      No regrets. Have slept less for lamer things. Last night was pretty freaking great.

      Bumped into madmanmoe again. Texas is a small state, after all (or it's just that we met in a very likely locale.) Had fun times, did irresponsible things with pizza, scored good loot.

      HEY MOE






      There, I broke you in. You're welcome.

      (Holy crap I'm high on insomnia. Quick, need another one of those chicks wheeling around buckets of Monster drinks.)

      How 'bout that season 9 finale coming up?
      Having watched it already makes me a spectator on a whole new level, since now I'm almost more interested in the reactions around the site than I am in the actual show. ...Well, almost. Man, there's gonna be so much fallout from tonight's episode I'm not sure I wanna stick around, catch any'a that ionizing nerdrage.

      But don't get me wrong; I loved it, myself. Something finally happened that really, really needed to happen--something I feel pretty strongly about, but haven't mentioned here before because I don't like rocking boats. At any rate, I get the feeling not everyone's going to be as satisfied with the finale as I am.

      I'll talk about it more later, if I feel like it, but to keep this journal from being completely vague and pointless, how 'bout some quotes?

      --- Never, ever SFW, I swear
      DK: So I had a dream
      DK: Not about black kids and white kids playing together though
      DK: But I dreamed.... well I don't remember most of it, but I think it was about a haunted house
      DK: I just remember the end
      DK: Which was like this car salesman guy strolling into a furniture store called FAMILY CIRCUS furniture
      DK: Because it was family owned and operated
      DK: And he rolled up to this attractive woman in there, in her twenties or so, and delivered the most insane and terrifying pickup line I've ever heard.
      DK: "If I was the ringmaster of YOUR Family Circus, I'd kill acrobats 1,2, and 6, and chain the rest to your bed."
      DK: As she gave him a look of stupefied, bewildered horror, I awoke, confused
      Haruhi2: this is how DK usually greets women
      DK: I mean I don't even know. Like I find the pun on the name of the store to be misguided because he's threatening to murder several of her siblings and turn the rest into sex slaves/voyeurs as he rails her.
      DK: I mean maybe there's an alternate interpretation but I'm not seeing it
      DK: also why acrobats 1,2, and 6
      DK: What have they DONE?
      DK: Are 3,4, and 5 so exceptional?
      AgentTon: Maybe they're the hot ones.
      AgentTon: Maybe 3, 4, and 5 are underaged.
      DK: What a skeevy fellow!
      AgentTon: Well it certainly sounded like it from your description!
      AgentTon: Now I'm just imagining the famous Family Circus dotted line trails
      AgentTon: Leading through some convoluted path down into a basement, coming back out with bloody footprints
      AgentTon: All the way up to the second story and the BDSM sex den.
      ReverendRagu: Oh god
      ReverendRagu: Why are you making me imagine Dolly in dominatrix gear ;____;
      ReverendRagu: And Billy in a gimp mask and a leather thong
      AgentTon: I was more imagining Grandma, with the kids tied down and terrified
      DK: lmaoh oh god
      DK: Grandpa peering down from heaven and weeping
      AgentTon: Dad's dressed up like a clown. He's never been so hard.
      DK: Mom's beating him with a baseball bat
      DK: "More like BIL KEEN! KEEEEN FOR MEEEE!"
      AgentTon: jgjjkh

    • Season 9 Screening

      Mission accomplished! Once again drove to Austin and back without committing vehicular manslaughter. I'm on a hot streak. Really am starting to believe my "Born to Take it Easy" shirt is lucky.

      The show was great, of course, and it was fun hanging out with some of the guys there, particularly SynOfGrave (whom you might know for creating Gus's Emergency Earthquake Kit, and madmanmoe (whom you might know for being generally awesome.) I totally owe you both drawings or somesuch.

      In typical RT style, the Q&A after the show had some hilarity going on (I was the chick who asked about Doc.) I wonder if anybody caught it on camera--you know there's always that *one person* in a crowd who's recording.

    • Artsy Poll

      Myshu chupariffic

      (woo, thanks to Brandon's last blog I scored a ticket to the screening after all! Life is good, friends. Looks like I'm rolling solo to Austin again, but that's cool. Anyone else gonna be in the area who wants to hang out for a night?)

      So I've got an open poll today, for you people watchin' who like to draw or paint or be artsy:

      What do you feel is your strong suit as an artist? What is your weakness? (and hey, no smartass or self-deprecating responses such as "everything.") That can mean any particular thing you do or don't like to draw, or a part of the process that troubles you, or something particularly easy for you that other artists may find challenging.

      As for me, I feel like an expert at drawing hands and feet. They're always the most fun part, and as I've drawn them I've learned that hands are one of the most expressive parts of the body, sometimes even as much as faces. Yet all the time I hear about artists (particularly some friends of mine, who are great at drawing facial expressions) struggling constantly with hands. It makes me feel odd because I always struggle to draw faces, and it can take forever for me to get a facial expression down in a way I find passable.

      But I'm curious about what you guys think of your own skills, so hit me with your comments.

      Avast, a Season 9 screening in Austin? On a day I have off work?? That sold out an hour before I logged on, alas. This is the universe telling me to quit taking naps.
      Psst, anyone have a spare ticket? Will whore self for movie *ahem* I mean, I guess I can't complain--I'll get to watch it on DVD with everyone else soon enough.

      Speaking of RvB, last Wednesday I went to a Mexican restaurant (mmm, wet burritos) and right off two of the waiters complimented my "Born to Take it Easy" shirt. Either that shirt keeps gettin' luckier every time I wear it out to eat (first time I wore it was at the Salt Lick for RTX's Sidequest), or Grif-swag just is too cool for these parts.
      It does suit my personality, at least.

      Zephira: How may light bulbs does it take to screw in a light bulb
      SaintNick: n+1
      SaintNick: How many lightbulbs does it take to screw in a lightbulb can be expressed as z(n+1) = z(n^2 + c)
      Zephira: It takes two :c
      Zephira: One that's broken an nees to be remove, an one that's new to screw in
      SaintNick: mine's right too, do the math.

      Zephira: Hey hey
      Zephira: do deaf schizophrenic people hear voices
      themis56: no, they sign voices
      SaintNick: yes, but they all sound funny as hell, so they don't take them seriously

      Donraj: Ah community college
      Donraj: I go back to visit mine like once a year just to remember where I started
      Sancdar: in the same vein, i go back to check out my dad's balls like once a year just to remember where i started
      Sancdar: oh god no
      Sancdar: i hope nobody does that

      professor: I had a student admit to playing Phoenix Wright in my class secretly once
      professor: And I was like "Was it the second game?"
      professor: "Yeah."
      professor: "Was it the circus case?"
      professor: "...uh yeah."
      professor: "You suck."
      Myshu: lmao seriously?
      professor: YES
      Myshu: ahahahaha
      Mozz: HAHAHA
      professor: I was like "For the record you probably shouldn't admit that to me"
      professor: (it was after the course was over)
      professor: "It was just the once"
      professor: "Yeah yeah, you insult me by playing the circus case"
