I apologize. The fine young woman with the auburn hair appears to have a propensity toward mirthful engagements in digital recreation that imbues her with a certain degree of refined respectability among peers.

See, when you phrase it like that, I haven't a f*cking clue what you're saying.

Oh, how I laughed.

Here's hoping she won't read the comments.

I'm pretty sure Julian made her sign the standard waiver of sanity before the interview.

OOooOOoo Daddy like

Ooo DADDY LIKE

I know I have made some comments in the past you may not have been fond of. I really do love the conference call, just wanted you to know that. I'm saving this one for work tomorrow.

That's called fraud, sir.

This is why we can't have nice things.

I've not listened to this yet, but I was also fortunate enough to do an interview with Ms. Day recently. She's totally awesome in a lot of ways.

I heard a phone vibrating at 53 minutes in during the interview... *tsk tsk*

We're not asking you to go all Renaissance on us.

I wonder if she played java, bowa or hybrid (pre 1.10) or if she was d2jsper with high fg.

Sure that was a phone?

You people are terrible. But hilarious.

What? I didn't use a single direct penile euphemism once! That's all the civilized I have!

(Alternate version of above post was simply, "I didn't say "dick" once!". I thought that might be pushing it. See? Restraint!)

You're the picture of self-control, *Legion*.

The long wait for training camps to start takes its toll. They're starting in the nick of time.

Admit it; the Favre thing's making you snap.

Has anyone checked out that indie game she mentioned? Dropping indie games casually like that...damn.

I'm gonna call your bluff and say that this is one of those wishful comments that translates into..."I really hope she joins us in the comments / forums"

Isnt it?! Look straight into my avatar's eyes and deny it!

I dare you.
I double dare you.

This is a bad thing how?

It would have, but Ted Thompson essentially giving the whining Favre a time-out instead of caving to his demands just warmed the cockles of my heart.

That picture is evil.

So distracting... damn you all!

Until he compromised with his demands and started shopping him around to other teams.

They had some issues with privacy and grabbing info from the Contacts list on people's systems. They have an updated version in the queue for approval, but it's down for now. I just got my iPod Touch today, I can't get it either.

You guys got me thinking about Troika Games again. I had the chance to play Arcanum but not ToEE or V:M-BL. Luckily, you can get Vampire on Steam for $20. Thanks for bringing that game up as I had left it for dead due to its history of bugginess. Hearing that it's much less so, I'm looking forward to downloading it. Cheers!

I'm pretty sure a longtime internet denizen who names her characters "labia" and such can handle the juvenile bits of our comment threads.
