Humans were drinking alcohol five thousand years ago, and they're still drinking it now. Alcohol is humanity's friend.

Can I abandon a friend?

I'm gonna be slow posting for the next couple of weeks; I've got 25-ish pages to write in the next week or so, then I get to start a research paper.

My move to a new job/apartment/life has turned completely tits-up in my face and now I am sleeping on an internet stranger's couch. My posting time should be back to normal by Wednesday.

There was massive failure of communication somewhere along the line and everything that I had gone through so much trouble to arrange just sort of fell apart. So now I am pimping out my 360 temporarily for rights to sleep on a friend's couch while I try to figure out what the gently caress went wrong.

Luckily he is a cool dude and can probably get me a job down here.

This should also be the "explanation of my absence" thread.

Sorry I was gone this weekend guys. On friday, right as I was posting in all of our games, our entire system shut down (phones, internet, everything) and so we were all in a hustle and stress about what was going on. I couldn't get ahold of my manager for over an hour because she was "on the phone" and the stress was crazy so I crashed when I got home.

Then I had to clean and had personal issues and to make a long story short, I had to take a personal day on Monday. I'm back now.

Sorry again.

Tonight is my brother-in-law's 21st birthday. We're going to see David Sedaris and then probably drinking. Since this means I won't be posting tonight or probably tomorrow, I'm going to try to get to the games I am in before I head out.

No, actually, because ZIRC banhammers people who are from AOL automagically. Guess who is stuck on AOL as long as he's at his parent's house?

Is it sad that I am tied for the most posts in this thread and I think the majority of them are absences?

I'm really not feeling well, guys. I know my posting is sporadic as is, but sitting up at a computer really sucks and the laptop feels miserable. I will be posting sometime today, I promise, but this is the only the beginning of feeling sick so I don't know if I will be able to post when I'm all sneezing and coughing and feverish.

New Update: I'm now in Corpus Christi, at another Holiday Inn. Wednesday was a bad estimate on my part, but I am 100% positive that I'll be set up somewhere by some time, at the most, over the weekend. Without any more cities to travel in between, I might be able to start posting from this computer tomorrow or the day after, after I figure out what my schedule is like.

Yes, in a couple of weeks, I'll start that back up. If you happen to know anyone who'd fill in Tairngire's spot well, feel free to bring them up to speed on Eberron and/or D&D.

I think I'm going to take a break. I'm really sorry to the games that I am in, I do love them all and love my characters. I'm also sorry to Sailor Moon because that was my most successful game to date (and there were going to be awesome twists coming up).

I'm having lots of issues, not the least of which being that I will be out of a job in 30 days, and I really don't need feeling horrible about my sporadic posting every day. I get up and remember I haven't posted in games and I feel like poo poo for the whole day. I avoid #ph because I don't want to talk to anyone there because I haven't been posting in my games. I go to post in my games, and I'm so behind that I don't know what's going on. I have cried on more than three occasions over how I feel about all of this.

So, thinking about it, I really need a break. As much as I love you guys and the games and everything I shouldn't be beating myself up about it like this.
