    Draft.

    She kept her hands crossed and felt her body shiver under the jacket, but when she heard the door creak open upstairs, she fixated upon the stairwell and waited to hear the knock upon the hardwood floor. It came - two quarters and two eighths in a quick staccato. Tap-tap-ta-tap. Unhurried foosteps echoed through the empty house and approached the doorway. Ridgeland then opened the door and shuffled down the stairs ...

  2. LB log - 20120615

    So after a few days of being a fence riding pussy, I decided to indulge and try some Johnnie Walker Black Label. I'm quite pleased with the drink, but I don't intend or desire to make it a regular recurring purchase. I'm not in a station of life where I can justify getting $30 bottles of booze for my own regular consumption. That's not a habit I need to foster at this time.

    Draft.

    It appears that the tab stops are not preserved when I write them out in the text file and subsequently post it here. I suppose I could solve that by putting the drafts into a separate code box, but then I'd probably have to put in artificial line breaks, lest the code box have a horizontal scroll bar which would require effort to move from one end to the other. That doesn't seem worth it to me.

    I trust that if any of you have a problem with what I'm writing or how I'm presenting ...

    Beware of Tuesday the Thirteenth.

    Go to boot up machine, notice the screen isn't up after I walk away to let it boot up. Figure that the PC was doing like it has a handful of times before where it turns on but doesn't complete the boot. OK. Press power button, see the Shut Down screen but it's all scrambled. Huh. Reboot. PC is working fine but the image is still scrambled. What's this about? Boot up PS2 and it shows up fine. So it's the HDMI that's bad. Hook up another PC to the HDMI ...

  5. Regarding etiquette in restaurant seating

    When my wife and I go to a restaurant and sit down for a meal, we usually sit across from each other in a booth. The booth feels comfortable to me probably mostly because it seems more enclosed than a set of seats situated around a table, and I think I prefer it because it's something which is unique to a dining experience. I can sit at a table when I'm eating at home; dining out is something which is to be enjoyed for it being a rare occasion.

    From what I can tell, though - and I'm ...

  6. cool story bro - Chapter III

    Once in a while, my Mom would like to take my sister and me to downtown Chicago for a day about the loop. Usually this meant going to a few stores, a museum of some kind (usually the Art Institute), then meet up with my Dad after he got off of work to go eat at Uno's Pizza or some other restaurant.

    I was in my early teen years on the day of this particular visit, and at that time I always had a Walkman on me to play some tape of common rock songs which I probably would just as soon ...

  7. cool story bro - Chapter II

    There was a place I used to hang out with a few other people. Technically I stayed as a roommate with the guy who owned the place for a few months but what I'm writing about happened after I had come and gone on those terms.

    At one point he had a big black cat that always wanted to get outside of the house, and once it did, the guy never let the cat back into the house. While not outwardly abusive, I think it's accurate to say that he wasn't exactly the best pet owner. I was at the ...
  8. cool story bro - Chapter I

    One of the houses I lived at as a child had a driveway which had a pair of shrubs lining the sides. They were mostly a slender rectangular shape of a few feet in height and length with a slimmer width. These kind of bushes turned out to be great places for bees and wasps to build nests.

    So I was like 8 or 9 at the time and was playing out in the front yard where the bushes are and there's a nest in the bush which would be on your right side if you were to pull into the driveway. Despite ...
  9. Cruise Control

    For the first time in more than a year the wife and I took on a road trip to visit one of her friends. The use of Cruise Control is something which I totally rejected in my earlier driving years but now I find it indispensable - you don't stress your legs over time and you don't have to constantly pay attention to whether you're too far beyond the speed limit or not. I only wish I would have embraced this technology sooner, because I probably wouldn't have ever had a speeding ticket otherwise. ...

  10. C.O.S.

    So there's a new movie out starring that queer that had a jumping orgasm on Oprah's couch that one time. Reviews for it come as every other movie to all the usual spots, among which is the Onion's AV Club.

    They have a comment section for all articles posted and sure enough some threads of discussion come up about his involvement in Hubbard's Cult. With the wonder of the Internet I really shouldn't be surprised - but, nevertheless, I am - that there are some people who defend the Cult ...

  11. My cousin and Facebook

    I have a cousin -I'll refer to her as Amy - who is a few years younger than myself (I'm currently 30, so I think she's 28) and is basically the second eldest person in the bracket of the family's generation; out of all siblings and cousins interrelated through my parents and their siblings, I'm the eldest, this cousin would be the second eldest, my sister behind her, and so on. This is the order which I grew up believing. However, about ten years ago, I came to discover that this wasn't the truth ...

  14. lol irc

    Congratulations on the successful upgrade. Good to see that our posts from 2002 shall still live on.

    I'd also like to thank all the people for showing up last night on IRC and would like to politely point out that there is a TNL chatroom which does exist the other 364 days of the year. As opposed to #thenextlevel it is titled #tnl. Join and make maruchan happy and give joust someone new to bitch at or with.
