Making progress with "Amazing Adventures with Heffalumps and Woozles", also known as Amnesia.

Good luck, you're going to hate storage if you're a jumpy person.
I'm only really jumpy when I'm going full-stealth, like most other stealth games. It's like a game of hide-and-seek and even though that's a harmless game, you hate to be noticed.

One good tip: Wine bottles or anything that can leave a loud *bang* when tossed really helps in making HTs get away from you quicker (kinda wish you could knock them out and watch them collapse after taking a good whack to the head from a heavy rock or force-feeding them blood wine (kudos to glass shards going down their throats); more satisfying if you could teabag them on the way out as a major "take that" to horror movies and etc.). I mean, I didn't need the flesh half as often as I thought during the last part of platformer hell (which I have the skills for and have been mocking it the entire time; even while opening the last gate (manual operation)).

I'll definitely be looking forward to the future nonsense.

EDIT:
Oh yeah, and the darkness isn't really all that bad in the game. Sure you'll eventually lose sanity and eventually faint once in awhile, but as long as you're relatively safe, or find a good hiding spot before passing out, you can nearly go the whole game sans tinderboxes and lantern. Only using the lantern to snap out of it quicker, especially if you're short from your goal hiding spot before passing out.

I also proposed a challenge as part of my recommending the game. Highest score (most tinderboxes and lantern oil, and fewest pass-outs (and whatever's left in the lantern if a tie) wins. If you play Low Ball with this challenge, then you're a pansy.

Well, the storage is unnaturally dark, and don't get me started on the next area's darkness...

Does it believe in a thing called love? Do I just have to listen to the rhythm of my heart? Is there's a chance I could make it now? Or will I be rocking 'til the sun goes down? I believe in a thing called love.

Finally got around to trying out Dark Souls. Got through the tutorial no problem, then met the first "real" enemy. Skeletons, not too bad yea?
NO.
They tore me up so many times and my sword did nothing. About to rage quit then I noticed something I should have seen before. I had a mace in my inventory  8)

Okay, I've been spending a lot of time in the forums now. I planned to play Terraria earlier, but got kinda sidetracked. I should go play it now.

After a three hour nap, my roommate's boyfriend gives me a pack of doritos as an apology for tricking me into doing a lot of work for him earlier~
Obviously he didn't say that, but I now his intentions in giving me these things~~

I'm reading a Fanfic based in a small American town, with a openly gay character, mostly everyone cool with the Mutant main character, and the baseball team (Who's lead player got kicked off and arrested for attacking the main character) piling out of a couple cars, surrounding the main character and then apologizing for the guy who attacked her

What is this I don't even.

Everything I know about small town america from the media has been a lie.

A friend linked me to this article. At first I thought it would belong in the sad thread as the whole "broken Britain" / "decline" narrative is factually inaccurate, causes problems of it's own, and generally irritates me. Luckily the tone of the article shifts by the end. I'm glad to see things like this published.

One good thing to have come out of the decline narrative is some supurb satire on the subject. It makes me happy to even think about but only because it the real issue makes me sad. The joys of satire huh?

Respect != politeness and vice-versa.

I don't get along too well with most Englishmen. I'm too rude and blunt for their tastes. I do a bit better with Welshmen and Scotsmen.

Happy because... I don't know actually. Feel like shit (sick), yet I am working, at a job I hate.
Happy because in two weeks I'm outta here! :D

You read that wrong, I think, because you repeated my point... There's an "I am" missing from that second sentence. Let me fix that. Unsubtle is my middle name (yeah I had weird parents).

Ahh, yes. That makes much more sense. I read that as "I don't get along with the English, because they're too rude and blunt for my tastes."

Yeah I got that, which is of course utter and complete nonsense. There's scores of examples of misunderstandings between Dutch and English, I've worked with quite a few of them at my previous job. Pleasant people, but harrd to communicate with, even if you speak the language. Always had to keep this list in mind: http://dalelandsbeyond.forumotion.com/t4720-english-dutch-translation-guide
