Guys. Wow.

Holy crap I've been absolutely terrible about posting lately. It's just been... so dark. I did most totes jinx myself with that two day in a row posting spree I had a while back. I actually had a third one started then, too, but never finished it. It's the continuation of The BS.

Anyway, I'm just letting you know that I am indeed alive and kicking, and will be posting soon. Like real soon. Like maybe even today, as long as my sprightly 2-year old nephew doesn't commandeer my laptop.

That line through my eye is an accident. Or a stress vein. Either or.

Until later, my friends.

The Way You Play "Draw Something"

Look at me, posting two days in a row! I'm proud. Hopefully I don't jinx myself. 

I recently got Draw Something and I'm fucking obsessed with it. It's so fun. Matter of fact, I invite you to play me. My username is Nishin.

But let me tell you something. A lot of people who play this game don't understand it. I play with a lot of randoms and I think a lot of them think the game is called "Write Something". It's not.

The premise of the game is that you choose a word, then you have to draw something (imagine that) that represents that word, and the other person has to guess what it is. Like charades. 

Let's say you choose to draw "elephant". This is what you should do:

The written part is what the other person (hopefully) guesses.
This is what a lot of the randoms I play with do:

There's never enough space to write something because the game is NOT CALLED WRITE SOMETHING.
And that's not the fucking point of the game.

The other thing about this game is that I believe some of the people playing it are from non-English speaking countries and are playing it in English anyway. The only problem with this is that the game, being that it's a North American game, is very North America-centric. If you're not from North America... you're not going to understand some of the things. For example, I drew this for this one random who I believe is from a Spanish-speaking country:

His name is Maxwell and he likes corn.
And he had no idea what it was, couldn't guess it, and then told me "that was really hard". And I thought, that wasn't hard, you just obviously have no idea what a fucking raccoon is. (The drawing was of a raccoon, by the way.) But I didn't say that because it's a policy of mine not to piss off people that don't know what raccoons are.

Anyway (I just misplaced my fingers when I went to type that and they produced "Zsnyqay", which I think would be a cool intergalactic race), that's all I had to say. Next post will be The BS 5. It's a good one.
