Generic "I'm back" thread

Postby Magelord648 » Tue Apr 28, 2009 10:31 am

Hey all.

After quite some time of skipping the SYM forums I've found that I'm getting bored. Seeing as I have 3 weeks until my GCSEs I need something to distract me from my revision and so I thought I'd make a return.

I also thought that seeing as I've been quite some time I'd update you all on what's been happening in my life while I've been away.

So here goes:

I've grown about an inch or two taller.

I think that's pretty much it.

Talk to you all soon.

Welcome back, ML. :)
''They say truth is the first casualty of war. But who defines what's true? Truth is just a matter of perspective. The duty of every soldier is to protect the innocent, and sometimes that means preserving the lie of good and evil, that war isn't just natural selection played out on a grand scale. The only truth I found is that the world we live in is a giant tinderbox. All it takes...is someone to light the match" - Captain Price

Thanks Des.

As to what is up: In the physical sense; the ceiling. In a more spiritual sense; not much.

Anything interesting been happening while I've been gone?

**From out of nowhere a big, black Mack truck appears in the middle of the thread.**
**Profuse swearing can be heard from inside, Punctuated by the sound of someone drinking deeply from a bottle**
**The door swings open, and an angry face appears amidst a lingering aroma of apricots.**

I hereby take over this thread for some sinister purpose. I still have to decide which exactly that will be, though ... :p

In the meantime, I'll just hang around in here, and wait for someone to entertain me. I'm bored.

Hello, Xandax. :) Just passing by.

Oh, dear... I've been too far away from GB nowadays, and I am having trouble typing your name! :o

Crawling out? Well, suppose. I'm actually on the middle of a recon mission. :D

This is my day off, and I thought of uninstall and re-install BG2. Because I had problem with BG2 last time around (I'm sure it is something to do with conflicting mods I got), I came good old GB, popped in the SYM, and saw your post.

Minerva! So good to see you! :) (Sorry guys, nice to see you too, but...)

so I'm on this thing called the Internet

and a truck of drunks goes whizzing bye. Compelled to follow, I come to find it's a truck I used to drive; or at least had a real good time riding in the back. You see, the memories can be a bit cloudy when your head is addled with virtual spirits. Doesn't seem like much but when enough 1's and 0's go by, it's tough to tell on from off.

I must say, with no offense intended towards the rooks, it is refreshing to see a host of old names present at the top of the SYM list. Makes me wonder how I got lost in the first place.

Ooooh look, a stocked fridge and hot tub. How easy people fall back into what they do best!

I hope the same is true for you.

It's good to see some things on the internet just don't change.
Coming back to GB/SYM is always like coming home after a prolongued vacation... ;)
