    RIP Desbreko 1988-2016

    Just wanted to share some of my strongest memories of Des: I remember one day, back when I was in college, my laptop was freezing and acting up. I was about ready to throw it out the window and try to replace it (with money I didn’t have and couldn’t get). I told Des about it and he said, “I might be able to help.” He very patiently walked me through a process I wouldn’t in a million years have figured out on my own, and my laptop didn’t give me trouble again for awhile. He was such a computer whiz. You can bet that after that, I went to him with my computer problems first thing. I remember staying up all night to watch Scrapped Princess and then gushing about it with Des the next day, because it was one of his favorite animes. I remember his endless bag o’ reaction images that he could whip out in the blink of an eye and that were always perfectly, suspiciously suited to the context. (It made me wonder if he had them catalogued by topic or something.) They always made me laugh. I remember watching many of his video game streams, but the one that really stands out to me was his run of FF7. That play-through reduced Des to wheezing laughter more than once, and hearing him crack up was one of the best parts of it. I remember when he came to stay with me and Missy for a week, how shy and thoughtful he was. How obvious it was that all he really wanted to do was chill with us. He treated us like his priority, and was so kind and considerate through the whole visit. We watched a lot of movies and anime that week. It was a good time. I remember Des as quiet and soft-spoken, but with a quick humor that often surprised me. I remember how generous he was with his time and attention. I remember him always being around, always available if someone had questions or needed help. Des was one-of-a-kind, and we'll all miss him very much.

  5. remembers the sentiment of the joke (mean), but not the setup or the punchline (something to do with balloons and bees).

    Art Post a screen shot of your desktop.

    My desktop is delightfully nerdy. [attachment=15221:Who Desktop.jpg] A month ago I had never watched an episode of Doctor Who. Now I've seen series 1 - 5, and own 1 - 3. [s] Damn you, Kat![/s]
  7. Maybe if I just open the oven, somehow there'll be a pie in there already.

      I swear an area of my oven cooks faster than the rest. I think that's what you call a ... *puts sunglasses on* ... hot pocket.

    Writing What are you reading?

    About a month ago, I started reading [i]A Light in August[/i] by William Faulkner. It was a lovely book, but I got halfway through it and distinctly heard a ping in the vicinity of my brain, and decided to take a break from Faulkner. Now I'm reading [i]The Eye of the World[/i], the first book in [i]The Wheel of Time[/i] series, by Robert Jordan. I'm a picky, often skeptical fantasy fan, so I'm interested to see how this book'll turn out. (I almost hope I'm not interested enough to continue the series, because, dayum, fourteen books?)

Shame on you, Chibi. PETA's preparing their counterattack.
