Long time no talk. I’ve been going through my old messages on Creepypasta and totally forgot that you moved to a new site. I just wanted to come by and say hi. I’ve been reading all of my favorite stories lately and your name kept popping up!
I’m sorry to report that my mother passed away this afternoon. She appreciated all the well-wishes she received. I probably won’t be very active online for a while. Have a blessed day. Raidra (talk) 22:30, April 30, 2018 (UTC)
Hey man! Sorry I've been AWOL for so long, I've been taking night classes and that, together with work, has been eating up all my time. But I should have a bit more freedom in the next couple weeks, and I do want to finish the story I started.
I haven't been able to leave people messages as much as I'd like, though I have been able to watch some Forged in Fire. Is it wrong to feel like laughing when the tip of someone's sword breaks off or their blade fails to cut into the ballistics skeleton? I missed what ended up happening in the episode because I got distracted, but one night there was a guy who was so cocky I thought, "I hope you fall on your rear..."
Lol. Yeah, I feel like that about some of the smiths. I saw one where not only did the sword fail to cut a row of bungee cords, it also bent to nearly a ninety degree angle. Sorry I'm so late in responding. I hope your Thanksgiving went well.
That's fine; my own response to messages has been sporadic lately. It was low-key, but good. Wow, that sounds like a fail on every level! Of course, I suppose national television isn't the worst place to discover your weapon is faulty.
Knight in battle- Now they shall taste my blade! (sword bends at nearly ninety degree angle) Uh-oh.
Lmao. I think I remember that one. If I remember correctly the valet goes to bring their car around and gets blown up : )
Anyway, I saw your question on Milan's wall about having your own category, and you are more than qualified. I'll go ahead and make the category, and you can just add it to your stories.
I know you probably don't want to hear this anymore than I did, but I just got the call yesterday that I do have cancer. It's called clear cell carcinoma deep in my kidney. I will have to undergo a partial nephrectomy (partial kidney removal). Don't worry though, I'm in the hands of the best doctors in the state and feel confident it will be ok. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know since we've always discussed these types of things. Hope all is well, my friend.
The valet getting blown up because they called off the hit a little too late reminds me of something I recently read about the Titanic. You know why they didn't spot the iceberg earlier? They dismissed the guy who had the key to the room with the binoculars, and they didn't feel the need to get a replacement key (or to, you know, ask the guy, "Hey, could we have that key back?"). "Huh? No, I don't think there will be that big a need to see far-away stuff." A reporter asked someone involved how much sooner they could have spotted the iceberg if they'd used binoculars, and in one of the great British answers, he replied, "Well, soon enough to miss the bloody thing!"
Yesterday was a hectic day, and I may not be able to post much for the next couple days, but we're hanging in there. Thank you for approving the category. ~basks in the glow of having own category~
I am very sorry to hear that, though I appreciate you telling me. Times like this I'm not sure whether to be sentimental or make jokes, so I'll do both. I'm thankful that you have such good doctors. Mom and I give our prayers and well-wishes during this time (two of the ways in which we show that we care), and we wish you a thorough recovery and lots of support.
Peter- And now for some knock-knock jokes!
Peter- And now I'll sit back down!
Thank you, Lois. I'll try not to worry too much. If you ever want a distraction, YouTuber ChavezzSlovakia has a lot of funny videos (For instance, he made that Adam West tribute video I posted a few months ago). Have a good one, my friend.
Lol. I appreciate the prayers and humor. I've been trying my best to stay upbeat about the whole thing, but it's still pretty dang scary when I think about it. You're very welcome on the category. You more than deserve it. I'll keep you updated on everything. Have a good one : )
One funny part is 1:35-1:36, when Kermit claims, "...got every man in here wishin'," and Elton John looks like he's thinking, "I'm not interested in Miss Piggy, mate." I'm glad you liked it, but if you're ever in the mood for a version with some more harmony, there's this.
Whatever happens, I hope everything goes well. I know how anxious waiting for medical news can make a person. Good luck on the anthology too. I know you've put work into it, unlike someone I could mention. You have a good one too.
It's not letting me reply to the blog for some reason, so here's my response.
“I’ve nearly begged a couple people to give my monologues a try, but so far no one is willing to take the risk, which I understand.” If someone does a narration and is accused of a crime, the media will say, “A video described as highly graphic and deeply unsettling was found uploaded to their YouTube account, which some experts are calling a clear sign of a warped and disturbed mind.” You’re certainly welcome, and thanks for dropping by! I plan to have more blogs in the future. As long as I’m here you all can tell people, “A bizarre apparition has been seen haunting that site!”
I don't know why this wiki hates me so much. It doesn't let me log in now unless I jump around from page to page until it finally shows that i'm still logged in. Then it finally lets me log out so i can log in properly. This happens with pretty much every visit and i'm not sure who to message about it.
Well the login issue seems okay when I do it that way, but I'll have to wait and see if the comment-posting issue persists. It usually happens after the first comment I post while logged in: it tells me there was an error with my login session and i lose what i typed. Wondering if it'll even post this or not...
Yeah, it's still being a bastard. I can log in at the CPwiki, then come over here and it's fine until I click the contest blog. Then my dashboard links turn into the "My Account" default login options for people who aren't logged in, and it refuses to let me log in. Don't have this issue with any other wiki that I'm aware of.
Damn, that is weird. About the only thing I can do is contact Wikia, so I'll send that out this morning and let you know when I hear back. What is weird is it's just you so it could be a combination of a setting on your computer and a setting on this site. I'll try to figure it out, my friend.
I can't put it in the contest because it's too short, but here you go!
The lady at the restaurant greets me & escorts me to a table. The staff has become familiar with me due to my frequent visits and acts cordial to me. Part of that is due to the ample tips I’ve been leaving. I can afford to be generous; after all, it’s not my money I’ve been spending on these lavish meals and tips. I take my seat, order a drink, and reflect as I wait.
It was a while back that I met a certain man and his family. I befriended him, showed him true companionship and closeness, and he betrayed me. When I objected to him favoring a former friend over me, my behavior was labelled as obsessive. Obsessive? For wanting no one and nothing to get between us? I tried to be the ultimate best friend and he betrayed me- not only by rejecting me, but also by enlisting others to imprison me. I finally managed to escape and afterward had a stroke of good fortune. I was able to steal the wallet of my betrayer and former friend, and in doing so I gained not only some assorted bills and coins, but also the means to enact my well-deserved revenge.
I have played many roles in my life; now I shall use my skills to completely usurp and ruin my betrayer’s life. I have his driver’s license, social security number, credit cards… shoot, that fat idiot even had his passport and the title to his house in there. I have everything I need to steal his identity, just like he stole my happiness. I have already begun the process. I’ve been using his credit cards to rack up bills which he’ll be held accountable for. The most notable bill is for meals at this very restaurant. Why would I leave such an obvious paper trail? Simple. I did it to lure him here. I want him to come and see me face to face. When he does, I’ll reveal the true extent of my plan. I’ll boost myself while dragging him down to Hades. I’m going to take everything. I’m going to take his home from him. I’m going to take his family- his charming wife and his stupid children- from him. I’m going to take his friends from him. I’m going to rob him of his entire life. His pleas will fall on deaf ears. Terms like friendship and family no longer have any meaning to me.
As I wait, I catch the sight of someone taking a mint from a little dish. The sight reminds me of the words I spoke as I was unwittingly being led to my prison. “Ooh, a piece of candy! ... Ooh, a piece of candy! ... Ooh, a piece of candy! ...”
