Remember when I mentioned that problem I was having with the Playstation 3 issue I was having, where we were losing our network connection every twenty seconds or so? You know, the one where, after everybody left, it went from a transient issue to a consistent one? Well, "I" "fixed" it. By switching to the wireless connection mode. Against all advice offered about this issue online. And it worked. I don't know why.

In related news, French-speakers pronounce my name adorably. "Maz Tre'-blueh", only with pure French swankiness crammed into every sylable. One could consider it a reward for doing something bold and unusually effective in-game. It was worth suffering the horrendous cross-continental lag. C'mon, west coast Americans, Canadians, and Aussies: get a PS3 and Orange Box so we can cartoonishly shoot each other with minimal lag. At this point, I've spent more time on European servers than anything else, listening to things such as British-accented young men team-speaking into their Eye-Toy, a device whose microphone is mediocre when well-placed.

That's all well and superflous. Damn it, I'm lonely, okay? In addition, my sleep schedule is whacked out, I'm not doing much, and I made cookies. Yup. Cookies. Wish I had somebody around to offer them to.

I've got five people to pick up from the air port, all coming in at different times, but I don't know any of those times. If you're one of those people, I'm expecting an email, comment, phone call, instant message, or something telling me when, and soon as you can, 'kay? Please don't wait for the day before or something, because that's playing with fire.

I have the Box L'Orange now, as it was on sale this week and I was weak. I need to reinstall a bit, as I foolishly installed Steam originally on a drive without terragigs of free space, but..

I babble. When I have TF2 up and running, I'll mention.

As much as I want to by a cartoony German doctor chasing you about with a healzooka, it can't be. See, I'm using my friend's PS3 to play Orange Box, which means I'm playing on EA's servers. EA is the only reason Orange Box was ported to the PS3, even though it seems like an obvious choice. Valve's executive is a jerk about it, purportedly said that the PS3 is going to pull a Dreamcast, and that Sony will never recover, blah blah, whatever. I'll give EA this much: somebody working there was level-headed enough to push Orange Box into my hands, and that's worth mentioning. The Devil his due, I guess.

Ahhhhh Steam. The thing that comes out of your morning coffee, it's your breath in winter, that cloud trailing over the coal plant. In this case, it's what's hanging over the defecation: I don't want to particularly be in its presence, thank you. XP

... oh.

Er... kind of sorry I brought it up at all, now, really. Didn't know the two platforms didn't share servers.


Well, my bad.

Good luck with the cookies ?

They came out great. Shall I mush this mint chocolate chip cookie into your icon on my screen? ^-^

Edit: raiblu will actually offer people food online if they request it... which he normally provokes by asking if they want some. He'll hold it up to the screen and say that he is doing so.
