Conversations with strangers

I got a new phone last month.  Ever since then, I've been swarmed with texts and calls from people looking for an "Emily".  At first I was polite, and told them this was no longer her number.  A month and a half later, I'm screwing with them because they just won't stop.  Here's a transcript of the latest:

Texter:  Hey Em??
Me:  She's getting dressed.  What's up?
T:  Who is this?
Me:  The guy who just took her to "pound town".  If you know what I mean. ;)
T:  I'm Young... So no... Lol
Me:  Well Young, I get at least 5 texts/calls a day from people thinking this is Em's number.  Best I can figure is that she has a new number and didn't tell you.
T:  Whooooo sry
Me:  Not your fault.  Have a happy new year.
T:  U to!  I was just with her this is weird!  Who t u
Me:  I'm a guy who got a new phone last month and has since been plagued by people calling Emily.
T:  I'm sry!  Emily is like my mom so idk y
     Have a good new yr
Me:  Again, not your fault.

I'm not a total ass.  Could I be?  Probably.

Parasite Eve: The 3rd Birthday trailer

I've been waiting for a proper sequel to the Parasite Eve series since I finally got around to beating PE2 a few years ago.  Is this the sequel I've been looking for?  Time will only tell, but with Square's habit of screwing the pooch as of late, I'm a little concerned.


For those in the know, or those that don't live on Mars, World of Warcraft: Cataclysm is out.  It's the last big hit of 2010 and I don't know if I can jump back in.

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love World of Warcraft.  From the lore to the incredibly immersive world, Blizzard has crafted what I consider a perfect fantasy world.  What absolutely kills it for me each time I come back is the community.  Granted, I play on one of the oldest servers in the game, but WoW has a reputation for making Xbox Live look like and example of tolerance.

What draws me back is the chance to play with old friends again, new classes, and a totally revised world.  I really want to create a Worgen and unleash the fury as a warrior.

What gives me pause, is the community.  I hate them with a passion.  Stories like this are what keep me at bay.  It's a community full of elitists unwilling to help.  Thankfully, I have a group of friends to play with, but do I really want to get back on the crack pony?
