  1. It being an open thread I guess this is place to announce I have a wordpress blog now.

  3. Nice! Let me dart over there and say hello.

  4. So… apparently Romney’s son went on record as saying he wanted to physically assault the president for the debate.

  5. Uh oh. Pecunium accidentally a blog. There goes all my free time!

  6. @Skyborn Rocket: Well, birds of a feather.

    I’m honestly not surprised. Their dad’s richer than God, it’s not surprising they’re all entitled and shit.

  7. is … is he named after Dagny Taggart, I wonder?

  8. is … is he named after Dagny Taggart, I wonder?

    Possibly. I didn’t think Willard was much of an Objectivist. He’s just rich, and entitled, and self-justified.

  9. And… posting to WP is trickier than to Lj. Links are a lot more nuisancy, as are special characters. Right now I have more freedom in comments than I do in posts.

  10. Heh heh heh … ha ha ha! Dinesh D’Souza, who’s made a career out of telling rich white Christians they’re special and deserving of being full American Citizens, not like those Not White People and Teh Gheys, got caught with a woman he’s not married to at a convention and there’s now serious talk about whether his career is over.

    Sure, the racism and homophobia are peachy keen, but grounds for the merest speculation that you’re cheating on your wife are RIGHT OUT.

  12. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    Pecunium – I find the only really annoying thing about having a WordPress blog is that it won’t allow a different font for posts. I like it a lot better than Blogger, though, especially since it let me make my own background.

  13. Kitteh’s. I’m only sort of happy with the interface. I got pretty used to using html in Lj, and I really resent not having the ability to just drop some in. I like my dingbats.

  14. Falconer: Hah, finally developed a new weapon so I got to see what you were talking about with the targets in the cutscene.😀

    Also, I finally saw a cyberdisk today. I was like.. woah! O.O Those have to be my favourite revamped enemy in the game.

  15. YES the cyberdisks are AWESOME. They used to irritate me something awful in the old game because they were so hard to kill and so effective. Now they give me a scare when they appear, but it isn’t tainted with early inclinations to ragequit and go read a book, because I can come to the end of the book but I just can’t come to the end of this. damn. game.
