Up in the morning….

At the student center typing this out. I had to come up here to get some money for laundry. They are about to do an open house or some school thing here. People are looking at me, but haven’t kicked me out yet.
Anyway this weekend has been good times. Suzanne got here yesterday afternoon and we went to the Taco Bell on the beach in Pacifica. I know it sounds all romantic and all, but it was pretty cool. It’s alot better looking than most Taco Bells and we got to watch all of the surfers at the beach.
After that we headed for Japantown for a couple of hours of shopping. We really didn’t buy too much and once again Suzanne out shopped me. I got a card and a new rice scooper for my rice cooker. The thing that sucked was that it was just a regular one, and not the one with the ridges or grooves in it. Suzanne got her grandmother this cool tray with koi fishes on it and she got her sister a nice wire basket.
We were going to go and see Croutching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; but instead we came back to my place. We ended up taking pictures of me. Now everybody says that I am good looking and some have said that I should do modeling. I’ve never really believed then until I saw the pics that Suzanne took. OMG, she made me look GOOD!!!! Some of them will pop up on the new icons that she is making for me.
**sigh** other things happened too, but I still kindatired (O.K. Really Tired)and I need to get laundry done. I think that we might goto Berkeley if we have time and do a little shopping. I need to get my tiger-eye necklace fixed and we can look for a ring for her.

I don’t know I feel as if there are still some small dark clouds in the sky, but the weather is starting to clear up for me.

**sigh** Just a little bit

**sigh** Just a little bit tired. I was waiting to see if Suzanne would call me, but she is either out or asleep. I wish that I had her schedule so I knew when she worked.
After work I went and got my cell phone activated. I was having second thoughts about it, but I went ahead and did it anyway. So then I goto the mall and a different cell phone place is selling two free phones, free long distance, and free cell-cell calls. It was a promotion that Suzanne and I looked at earlier this year, but I had forgotten about it. Oh well.
I aalso went shopping at Pacific Super and 99 Ranch Market. They are supermarkets that cater to Asians. I went to get so green tea I/C for Suzanne and ended up getting a shitload of stuff. I am def. stocked on food now. But it is funny when I goto these stores and people think it is strange that a black man is in an Asian store. and I always hear a Korean talking about me thinking that I don’t know what they are saying. I don’t know all the words that they are saying, but I can put bits and pieces together.
I was planning on writing more, but I am really tired and my roommate is trying to sleep. I warned him that I went to sleep late. But tonight, I will hit the sack a little early.

I am almost outta here.

I am almost outta here. I need to goto Walgreens to pick up some stuff, and I am also going to goto Sprint and get my cell phone activated. Whoohoo!!!! Then go home and cook some chicken and catch up on some reading. Maybe my roommate will be home and I can talk to him and get to know him better.
Blah….O.K. I’m outta here.

Oh man am I tired

Oh man am I tired and sore. I think it is the room; ever since Justin has moved in, the temperature in the room has been crazy. It ranges from being too hot to being too cold. I’m sure part of the reason is because my computer is on all day long. But I have to leave it on for the phone (I have a MS Cordless Phone) and the answering machine. Well, in a couple of weeks, I should have a new computer and maybe the heat won’t be so bad. Anyway, since the room is so hot, I have to leave the window open at night and have the fan running. My bed is next to the window, so at night I’m either too hot or too cold.
Anyway, I am still reminising over Everquest. I really want to sign up, but I have to remember that I’m moving out soon, and with that I’m losing my high speed internet. The next place I move too I will def. need to get either DSL or a cable modem. I need to talk to people to figure out where I am going to live after this semster.
O.K. I guess I need to so my face on the cameras. we got a Beanie Baby order in today. I guess I’ll go and recieve it.

So I killed off Linluan

So I killed off Linluan off; I got him roaring drunk and made an ass of myself around the pier, almost getting into fights with people and being a roaring drunk. After I had switched everything I drowned Linluan body in the ocean outside the city where sharks were at. I really role played the characters.
**sigh** It would be nice to sign back up and play again. Actually I have tried, but I can’t find my EverQuest CD. I gave it to Serraphto hold but she says that she doesn’t have it anymore. It’s probably a good thing though,
Actually there is one more site that I think had a snapshot of me next to Mammoth (this huge grizzly bear), but the site just moved to a new server and the profiles aren’t up yet.
O.K. Enough reminiscing. Time to finish this paper….

Talona’s Story….

Here i am in Freeport, huddled under an empty tent on the outskirts of town, with only stolen equipment to keep me company. How did I end up here….
It started when I had finally had enough of my abusive stepdad beating on me, treating me wrong. We had a small farm out in the western Commonlands. It’s wasn’t much, but it was ours. Mom died when I was 8 trying to defend the farm from a pack of how was I suppose to frighten away a pack of wolves. Anyway, 8 years of abuse was enough for me, so I got up and left for the big city.
I was full of all hopes and dreams that Erollisi Marr, Mithaniel Marr, and the other good gods would look down and protect me and guide me. But the gods seemed to be busy else where. With no money, no food, and no where to go, I had no choice but to sell my body in order to survive. If anything, it was worse that the life that I had run away from. For 2 years, I lived the life of a whore, with no care for anything in the world. One day beaten and abused, I looked into the mirror and saw myself, and I was horrified and what I had become. I wanted to change myself and free myself from the chains that had shackled me. So I ran to the Temple of Marr hoping that the priests of the temple could help me to save my soul. But they took one look at me and only saw a filthy prostitute soiling their holy ground. I cried and fought them to let me into the temple, but a couple of their paladins grabbed me and threw me out of the temple grounds. Not knowing what to do, I went to the docks. Sitting at the docks, crying, I wondered what I would do with my life. Suddenly, from behind, someone grabbed me. I turned around to see a drunken half-elf talking to me. All i clearly remember was that his name was Linluan. But at the time, all I could see was another drunken man who wanted to use and abuse my body. Has rage flowed within me, I decided that no man would take my body again without my permission. I pulled out my dagger and started to attack me. He must have been an adventurer, because he easily pulled my little dagger from my hands and tossed it. Has we struggled around, I tripped and fell on him and we both fell down. Has I started beating on him, I noticed that he had stop attacking me. Has I stopped and got up, I saw that he had falled on my dagger that he had tossed away, and had died. I a dazed, i stripped him naked and tossed him body into the ocean. Hopefully the sharks will have finished him off by now. I ran off into the sewers with all of this stuff, lost and confused. I ran until I collapse in a heap. I cried out for anyone who could help me, I would give anything if only someone could help me. In the darkness that surrounded me, a prescience came to me in the form of glowing red eyes. He told me of my faults; that Love and kindness are tools for those too ignorant to know what they want or too cowardly to do what is necessary to obtain it. It is only through the total disdain of your enemies that you can gain true power over them. Pity and mercy have no power when confronted with contempt and viciousness. that with hate strong enough they could destroy all of Norrath and control my own destiny. If I would follow him, he would give me the power that I needed and deserved. I put on the item that I had stolen off of Linluan’s body and followed the eyes though the sewers and under Freeport until I came to a group of people. From this group, a man came to me and so began, my new life has a Shadow knight to my new father Innoruuk, Prince of Hate.

Ah the Evercrack days, how

Ah the Evercrack days, how I long for them. This was a pretty good character, I’d Have to say. I made it from one end of the continent to the other at level 5. Seraph,if you thought that I left a lot of dead bodies of your elf in the forest that one time, you can’t imagine how many of my corpses littered the ground.
After awhile, I decided to play a new character and so I decided to twink she with the stuff from my old character. I even wrote a story to explain it all. I wonder if they still have that story…

Current music: Listening To Live105 on my USB Radio

well, I made it through

well, I made it through my classes and I feel a little better. I was planning on running to Japantown to go aon a anime CD shopping spree to make me feel better, but suprisingly all I needed was food. Now I think that I am going to hit the shower and then finish my midtern that already way late. Hopefully Suzanne will be home too.
