As much as I enjoy these late-night conversations, I'm gonna head off to bed in about 5-10 minutes, it's getting late and I have to kinda-sorta be up early tomorrow.
I tend not to engage in conversations unless I have something meaningful to contribute, which is why I'm silent and pokerfacing the whole time you, Coffer, and/or Alai start in on the F1 stuff. I know bugger all about anything F1-related, so anything I post related to it will just be meaningless drivel.
Yeah, I really can't stay up any longer. G'night y'all--I'll poke through the next few pages tomorrow morning, so don't hold back on any replies, I'll find them.
Yeah, I think I've apologized way too many times for starting those F1-related conversations, but really, if you want to mention something related to it, go right ahead. It's not like I'll be "offended" or anything, I'd actually love it.
I'm still really surprised by the fact that Vetali is genuinely interested in it. As for Alai, even considering our major differences, he genuinely seems to like commentating on the races with me (I already knew that he was a long-time fan, but he hates me, so I'm still kinda surprised). And I missed having someone to enjoy races with. I missed it so very much.

I hate my knee. Hurt it last year in the snow. Every once in a while if I step just wrong it will pop back out and hurt for a few days. Just did that a few mins ago.
I don't know. Its a lot to type.
Having to swap guilds constantly for a while taught me how to be more social, sadly. Though most the time I found people that really liked to hang out with me, and people that really hated me. So I'm used to it.
Alot of the reason I don't really talk to anyone IRL until I lurk around for a while, also why I lurked so long in these threads until I got a handle on a few people and how they react to things...
Might as well make a non-negative post today.
So......I don't know here is something random.

my job here is done
Might as well.
Reason I was irritated (and am) is I stayed up all last night writing, for the first time since middle school, a poem from Sky Shatter to Luna, to be sent to Molestia's mailbox.
Yeah, it's Molestia, but JJ seems to want to make a serious character out of Luna. Anyway, the mailbox was open, and I spent the night learning all the tenses of Old English, and after many rewrites [Tucuxia: your lines have 12 syllables, iambic pentameter is what you should use; 12 beats feels terrible. Del: But I'll have to rewrite everything! Tux: it's your choice, how accurate do you want this to be? Del: Guh *delete*] I finally finished at 7 in the morning.
But Sky Shatter's tumblr wasn't up yet, and I get a call that I have to open my store, for the first time in months. I leave with everything nearly finished, and come home 3 hours later than expected.
JJ had closed the mailbox a few hours before. Who knows when he'll open it again. So yeah, I'm not happy. Who knows where the story will go with the questions he got in the meantime, especially since Luna dropped that she'd like a "special somepony" someday.
So, for the sake of posterity, here are Sky's heartfelt words to Luna.
As I bathe alone in the evening sky
I lose my breath before the wondrous sight
Of the worlds I've seen, none of them are nigh
To the beauty thou givest to thy night.
Eventide's allure twin only to thine
An endless glittered sea rivaled by none
Silver light of the peerless moon doth shine
Her embrace softer than thy sister Sun.
But loneliness doth pain the empty heart
So join me, Luna, as one we will fly
Under starlit heavens, time held apart
Together as forever passes by.
