Damn, Damn, Damn

I have done a lot of things.

I have stood toe to toe with another man and let my fists do the talking.

I have risked life and limb to help someone else.

I have gone looking for a Wii in mid-December.

When I did each of those things, I never experienced fear.

Not even a little.

But this morning, I experienced true fear, true terror.

[GM]Dave>> Hey, guys.
[GM]Dave>> Anyone know what the date is?

Oh, damn.

Apparently, today is Valentine's Day.

Apparently, this is a big deal.

Apparently, forgetting it is an even bigger deal.

Apparently, I am utterly screwed.

Damn, damn, damn.

Susan's not that big.

I'm pretty sure if I absolutely had to, I could take her.

I'm sure I could at least out run her.

And yet, when the date came up this morning and kicked me in the face, I actually feared for my life.

I have to sleep sometime.

We own scissors.

Is there any chance I could stay with one of you guys?

I don't think you'd like it at my place, I don't play MMORPGs...

But realizing that TODAY’s Valentins day is quite ok… you still can get some junk as a present. But I’m damned reading this one day too late!!

Heres hoping you made it through yesterday. I'd offer you my place but there's World of Warcraft there.

Dave, you'd have to bring your own Comp, cause I don't play FFIX. That said, if you came and stayed with me, you wouldn't have to take those pesky GM calls. Think about it... Are you imagining it? You could just not group with people... It'd be great. Also, if she comes after you, you could, just, in theory, feed her character to some kind of giant fire breathing, people eating, flying, mighty lizard... type thing. >_> Just throwing that out there. I mean, I know you'd never do that... But, you could if you really wanted. Anywho, bring chips. Like Sundast said, Interweb Royalty is always welcome.

Except for Anonymous, that jerk.

Edit: Damn it, I REALLY need to start proofreading my posts. This kind of thing drives me insane...

Dave, I would like you to know that I would TOTALLY let you stay with me tonight. However, you've previously posted proof that Susan is a VERY vengeful woman, and I am terrified at the idea of her locating you at my home. Should she learn that I was willingly hiding you here, my safety would be in question as well. Seeing as you're just as much as a "first priority on the safety of oneself" guy as I am, I hope you can understand.

Also, did you ever get that Wii? Good system, doesn't deserve nearly half the crap it gets.
*plays some Super Paper Mario*

I don't think it it the scissors you should be worried about, but the pliers instead...

sure you can stay at my place, i really need to buckle down and level my Scholar anyways.

that said, I'm leaving for vacation in 12 hours...so you'd have to get out at a certain point.

Word of advice: Learn when Mother's Day is. Don't forget - it'll count this time.

DAMN.

I'm in the same boat as you, but I suppose it doesn't matter nearly as much. My special someone is currently threatening to drop steak knives on me should I try to stop by her place...

>.<

Good luck to the both of us =D

P.S. This is my first comment on your blog, but I've been reading it for a good two years now. I just wanted to commend you for a job VERY well done!

Hell no, you can't stay with me. You leave the cap off the toothpaste.
