    I've never been more sick then when I've tried to drink and smoke in the same night. Luckily most of those nights were in the UK where vomiting on the sidewalk at 2:00AM is just standard operating procedure.

    I'll have to stick to whiskey and beer, at this point my body basically rejects everything else

    It's amazing how much pettiness a bunch of pixels on a gaming forum can conjure up.

    @Parafix.

    While it's true the curia doesn't take away awards. I think I should point out that bullish over confidence and feather ruffling may be frowned upon if you were hoping to be nominated for another large award. Opifex for instance.

    Halie, whenever you and I agree (which is more often than I would have thought) I am hit by something like an electric buzz. It raises the question, did you just recently begin practicing dark magic or is it something you've perfected over the years?

    There is nothing stopping the Curia from preparing a Decision to Hex recommending the removal of an award.

    I believe we may be missing a report, too.

    Just being abrasive is not cause for removal. It will take an extraordinary event. Being honest is forthright is not, by itself, a bad trait; however, just have care when you do it. This is a gaming site and the number reason for coming here is fun and entertainment. There is a human being on the other side of that screen name.
    You'll see no blatantly blunt comments regarding fun nor entertainment from me. However, whenever a child sticks it's fingers into a socket, i will tell it not to while pointing out the stupidity of doing so, in the hopes it becomes less stupid and doesn't repeat the action.

    Oh for anyone that doesn't know what i'm on about when referring to the "stick". Stick = Blunt, Words = Blunt, me grabbing the stick is me preparing to be brutally blunt with someone with words, in hoping those words can "knock" some sense into them.

    Making Idle threats of removal of citizenship or awards, because one does not like the use of someones language, requires the stick. We have TOS for language violations, in which i do not breech, nor is the Curias place to judge such matters.

    Omg, this is the nonsense I hate.
    This started because I said the Curia can take away what it gives. End of story.
    I do not care what your excuse for rudeness is. If you are rude to me I will call you out. I am not shy about it.
    Bottom line is that I am at a point in my life where courtesy and respect is paramount. I give excuses to be respectful not rudeness. Life is too short to go through it with such anger.

    When I was re-elected I explained that the Curial Report would be late. I changed from position at work on January first which means I had basically no time to do it so far. I again apologize for that but I can tell you that it's being worked on and around 60% finished. (The report it is). The CIA will be done before the end of my term I promise.

    I get that you're frustrated but the general mood in the Curia has been sour the last couple of days/weeks. I'm very tired of it and I ask everyone to please be a little bit friendlier to each other.

    yes I want you to retire, but just because I want to be the guest of honor at your retirement party; I'm expecting the usual things: golden watches, nice and submissive mates, plenty of refined food and precious wines, and many many wheelbarrows to bring people home after the party!

    ah, the time I was a regular guest at Arcore!
