SonicRob: in other news, a guy thought he bought an XBox One off ebay for $750. The auction was “for the item pictured”. It turned out the auction picture was a picture of a photo of an XBox.
SonicRob: so he got that with a “thank you for bidding” note written on the back
FyreHaar: oh shit
FyreHaar: fuck the auctioneer
FyreHaar: fuck him
FyreHaar: no excuse you fraudster
SonicRob: fucking psychopath
SonicRob: like, buying up a bunch of new consoles and then gouging on ebay is already borderline scammy *pretending* to do that and then actually committing what’s essentially a con, and then *smiling the dude’s metaphorical face* with a thank you note borders on sociopathic.
SonicRob: glow in the dark? really?
FyreHaar: of course!
SonicRob: that’s like a commemorative MLK rifle bullet.
FyreHaar: It’s slightly different
FyreHaar: but yeah, I see the parallel
FyreHaar: I gave Spark her first pair of Chuck Taylors yesterday
SonicRob: aw, hipster toddler
FyreHaar: she loved them
FyreHaar: wore them all day
FyreHaar: didn’t want to take them off to go to bed
SonicRob: we went to Waffle Stop
FyreHaar: Waffle Stop sounds amazing!
SonicRob: kinda janky. The waffle was good, but I ordered “a waffle with apples, apple glaze, and whipped topping” and got a waffle with a tiny dollop of stewed apples and then just fucking coated in canned whipped oil
FyreHaar: I’ve appreciated the rest
FyreHaar: but waking up on a Monday with nowhere to be fucking sucks
SonicRob: oh, for sure

Sassy Bobcat: quick: make up funny weed-names for weed from the north pole
Thief of Dream Women: Ho Ho Humboldt
Heirophant O’Tacobell: Red-Nosed Reindank?
Thief of Dream Women: Santa Kush
Heirophant O’Tacobell: Blitzer. (too easy)
Thief of Dream Women: I’m mad I didn’t see that right away
Sonic Rob: Blow, yay, flake, candy, base
Thief of Dream Women: That’s… not weed
Heirophant O’Tacobell: That’s… that’s coke Rob.
Sonic Rob: Cause snow looks like all those things
Sonic Rob: Wait what
Sig Fem Seks: This PS4 launch is kind of a mess, yeah?
Sig Fem Seks: Knack: 59
Sig Fem Seks: Pretty shaky launch
Sonic Rob: oh FUCK
Sonic Rob: I feel bad for all the shit I talked about Knack now
Sonic Rob: but anyhow, that’s only 2 games
Sig Fem Seks: That’s the two exclusives
Sig Fem Seks: But yeah
Sonic Rob: I can’t remember the last launch exclusive that was seen as a great game for the ages
Sig Fem Seks: CONDEMNED
Sig Fem Seks: CRIMINAL
Sig Fem Seks: MOTHERFUCKING
Sig Fem Seks: ORIGINS
Sonic Rob: it’s Be Nice Day, let’s be nice about this

FyreHaar: fucking heathens
SonicRob: in re: lincoln, paint is a valid and largely non-destructive form of protest when applied to stone
SonicRob: better than chisels or bullets
FyreHaar: but still
SonicRob: presuming any intended speech act, and not mere vandalism
SonicRob: mere vandalism is always deplorable
Sig Fem Seks: Oh wow, I forgot how excited I am about Destiny
Sig Fem Seks: aka Halolands
Sonic Rob: you forgot that you were not excited?
Sig Fem Seks: I forgot that I really want to play it
Sig Fem Seks: and that it exists
Sonic Rob: um
Sonic Rob: oh
Sig Fem Seks: There’s a new video out for it that I’ll need to watch at some point
Sig Fem Seks: but they’re basically talking about the MMO aspects of “All the stuff you can do when you don’t really want to do anything.”
Sig Fem Seks: Which is one thing I felt that Borderlands lacked
Sonic Rob: well, Borderlands is about shoot n loot
Sig Fem Seks: Sure
Sig Fem Seks: it’s like Diablo in that way
Sonic Rob: they don’t really water it down with crafting or anything like that
Sonic Rob: I guess my attitude is “If I don’t want to do the main thing in this game, I’ll be not playing the game”, not “I want this game to have something for me to do no matter what I feel like”
Sig Fem Seks: That’s a fair point
Sonic Rob: which is why GTA 5 maybe doesn’t excite me, now that I think of it
Sig Fem Seks: Well, the missions are the meat of that game
Sig Fem Seks: You don’t have to do anything else
Sonic Rob: I just can’t see myself thinking “man, I really like the avatar I use to steal cars and shoot stuff. I wish I could make him play golf.”
SonicRob: we are going to hire another dude named Rob :/
FyreHaar: then you are Original Rob!
SonicRob: This is a bad environment to go by Sonic – people will think hedgehog
FyreHaar: I like RobPrime
SonicRob: makes me sound like I lead the AutoRobs
FyreHaar: hell yes
SonicRob: Just a bunch of Robs that try to turn into cars
SonicRob: but we end up breaking our legs and organs
SonicRob: could be worse – the Rob-Bots are unspeakable
