    I do NOT want to use guns to kill robots or kung fu to dismember opponents.
    I get that- I think there are quite a few games that go too far with the "kill 'em all" thing. That being said, my husband still plays war games from time to time. I think for him it's more of an outlet for how much he misses the Army though. And he never plays when the girls are up, so they don't see or hear any of it. Now for my next tiny rant....
    Lately, people have been calling the restaurant where I work asking what time we close. I tell them we CLOSE at 9, but we usually STOP SEATING at 830. I always get this response- "oh, ok, well we will be there WAY before then," Then, at 8:59, the people who called earlier show up and want a table. We politely tell them we stopped seating half an hour ago. Then they argue with us about how "the girl on the phone said you close at 9," usually right to my face, and since I'm "THE GIRL ON THE PHONE," I tell them even more politely that I told them we USUALLY STOP SEATING AT 830. Then I get a lecture about how they drove to the restaurant to eat and because I LIED TO THEM, now they have to go hungry..... I'm really sorry to swear, but, WHAT THE HELL?
    People come in all the time and treat us like we are their own personal servants. Like "what do you mean you don't want to start up all the woks and grills and fryers again one minute before close so I can have my Kung Pao chicken?" "why did you sweep and mop and do all your side work and clean the entire kitchen? Didn't you know I was coming???" I could SLAP these people. And you know, the really sad thing about these types is this- my boss and his family are extremely accommodating people, and nine times out of ten, if you ask Jason nicely for something, he'll make exceptions. But people are just rude and downright insulting and then they go on the local internet forum and spread rumors like we have gone out of business or they saw a rat in the kitchen (which you can't see from the dining room) and all because they chose to ignore "the girl on the phone" when she gave them fair warning that we stop seating early. GRRRR.

    ∆olius: I know what you mean. I don't like the "shoot 'em up" games. So little finesse! Granted, I don't like Myst either (I guess I'm too oblivious to ever be good at it). My favorite games are racing games (you know, like Disney racing where the goal is really to win the race not to bash the other's car) and games like Age of Empires and Harvest Moon where I can focus on building something up.

    Lotus: That is so annoying! I've never worked in the food industry, but it was similar in my copy shop. People would show up a minute before closing with this expressing like "SAFE!" And then proceed to bawl us out when we tell them they have to leave their job and pick it up in the morning. "What do you mean you can't make 20 copies of my 200-page booklet double-sided and bind them all? I got here before 9:00, and I NEED it!" (Note: All of this asked would have taken at least an hour. If it's like, one copy, we don't beef about it. XD) These people fail to realize that closing time means literally you are CLOSED. That means no work for the customers goes on, just the stuff that needs to get done to CLOSE the place (tills, sweeping, maintenance, etc). I was the shift worker for closing time for 3 years, and I literally had to threaten to call security regularly.

    I need to bitch it out right now about crazy youtube users. Ive started changing my videos over to moderated comments, I dont like to censor people, and if someone doesnt like me that's fine... but that's not what Im getting. Im constantly getting people asking questions that are IN the video and the description and already answered AGAIN in the comments. It drive me nuts, especially when the people are rude demanding. And I've got this kid posting all over my videos telling people not to waste their money on a realistic tail and make one or buy from mermagica. So I started responding saying those are great for people who wanna have fun, but my tail suits my needs. She proceeds to tell me to mind my own business, she's not talking to ME. Im like, uh omg? You're posting comments on my videos! YOU ARE TALKING TO ME AND IT'S VERY MUCH MY BUSINESS. her comments get so stupid, that youtube actually pre-censors them, lol! I log on to my own videos to see "comment removed" and "comment hidden" and I gotta go a round about way to see what she says. So I try explaining to her how youtube comments work etc, I even tried noting her to explain things but she keeps deleting her account. I seem to be having an issue with "haters" who post from multiple accounts they then delete, saying things only certain people would have opinions on etc which makes me believe a certain person is behind most of it. But this girl, I dont think she was that person, just somewhere out in space lol.

    I get people constantly asking me to give them a tail, or demanding it, and the other weird thing is people asking me to email Raven for them! Im just so freaking busy and tired >.> I gots no patience for it. I dont wanna sound unappreciative of having fans, I mean, the fact I can even complain is cool BUT OMG it's driving me bonkers.

    p.s. I know a lot of you have jumped in too, to answer questions, and step up to nutters like this. Honestly, Ive just been deleting the nonsense and will just start moderating

    I was sitting on the couch with a bag of kettle corn watching that happen to you. It was hilarious to see all the idiocy going around and I felt bad for you. But it was still amusing.

    Seriously, Raina (or are we supposed to call you AniaR?)! Sometimes, I'm like "Don't you people know how to READ? It's practically the first thing she says in her description!" And it's ridiculous how some people think, "Oh, gee! If I comment on her video she'll just give me a tail!" How dumb. XP

    I'd say if the person uses text abbreviations and butchers their sentences so bad you can hardly make out what they're saying, or if they ask something that is obvious, just don't even acknowledge them. Only reply to the serious inquiries.

    I know what you mean. ^^ But, I am just assuming that is what IKWYM means.

    When hubbys and I feel the time is right to get pregnant, we will try and it will be a private act.

    Count back 9 months like everyone else.

    I would kill for some A/C right now. It's been over 100 degrees almost every day for the last 3 weeks straight, even at night it doesn't go below the 80's... I feel like a giant puddle of melted mermaid.

    Im having issues with my thyroids, today i went to the doctor thinking i would get told about my ultrasound results, well Nope, it wasnt going to be so easy, I ended up getting a tube into my nose and down my throat to see whats going on in there, though they numbed me, by far it was the most uncomfortable thing ever, i wanted to cough or sneeze, it was one of those two, the nausea from the anesthetic didint help, im kinda glad i had a rice cake previously..

    As if that wasnt enough, i had to get blood done. Now that sounds like a regular thing but.. hi--i have a severe phobia of needles, no i dont faint, i literally go into a shut down, my mind wont hear of it, my body wont move. And yet i knew better because i was getting sick of this contstant weight gain and hair loss among other things. So I took the needle and almost broke my husbands hand in the process. Now to wait till monday for the results. :/

    I'm so annoyed! I wanted to use Google plus to help advertise for mer-gigs...but it won't let me use my business name (or mer-name) because it determined it's not a real name. My accounts on Google Plus and Reader have been suspended. I don't want to use my real name, because I want to keep this job and my job as an educator separate, and my pro mermaiding separate from my personal life. Is this really so hard for Google to understand?

    Thalassa, Spindrift, I am the same way... it doesn't make sense to me. I grumble (more or less under my breath) but it is usually more colorful (vivid descriptions or the animals they resemble or what'd happen if I got my hands on them), and only when I'm angry. Using profanity for emphasis in a sentence diminishes both the emphasis and the profanity.

    Aeolius, your fictional games sound like fun... though I'm not sure that your stance against fighting and killing and shooting games would hold up with Sweeney Todd for Wii. Hunting and first person shooter games don't impress me much, either, but I do like roleplaying games and fantasy strategy games.

    Here I sit, at my hairdressers. Three weeks ago, I had her dye my hair with kelp-colored dye. It was on my bucket list. . Within a week it turned a lovely neon lemon-lime color. So I went back and she tried a different color to darken it up. Within two weeks it ended up this weird greenish copper color. I rather liked it as it was unique. My wife however was less than impressed. So, here I sit getting it bleached out. Oh well.

    I have run the hair-dye gauntlet myself. The problem with "un-natural" colors, is that they always fade really quickly, and the fade isn't always flattering.
