Dump Stats

There's a "What are your D&D Stats" meme making its way around Facebook. I'm not too motivated to do it for a couple of reasons: Mostly I don't like how you have to show the meme creators your underwear drawer and your little black book simultaneously, but mostly because I think the meme is poorly designed. It did get me thinking about statistics and what is charmingly called the dump stat - the one stat you steal points from to make your character better in ways that are more important to you.

Do you notice a pattern? I sure as hell don't. It's neither sorted by time, nor person (Several people updated multiple times, sometimes their posts are in order and sometimes they're not).

When people bitch about change, they mean bad or useless or arbitrary change.

Well I just attempted to add assorted folks from my Scotland tour to my facebook. We'll see how that goes.

In other news: SQUEE!

I had disturbing dreams about old enemies last night. I blame facebook. Checking out friends-of-friends exposed me to a lot of names of people I'd rather not know about.

The dreams themselves point to numerous unresolved issues. Realistically, they're issues that simply cannot be resolved. Which means I have to put them behind me somehow. As with childhood trauma, it's not something I'm particularly good at.

Also, I'm debating who to request connections with. I'm more then a little anxious about rejection, which is faintly ridiculous given that these people are ones I'm unlikely to ever see face to face again.

Damn you social phobia.

A curious phenomena has been observed when I'm at a party. There will be no making out for anyone if I am there. Not necessarily making out for me you understand (though that is a subset) - it's no making out for anyone. If I leave a party early, the making out will begin. Doesn't matter when. If I leave at 9 pm, it will occur after 9. If I leave at 2 am, it will occur after 2 am. If I spend the night it won't happen at all. I've even had friends who knew about this weirdness deliberately try to break it and fail.

Basically I have this psychic field that thwarts romance.

Now this doesn't mean that I suck the life out of any party I'm in, plenty of other fun stuff might happen. I do get repeat invitations, so I can't be that much of an asshat, even when liquored up.

This is all a preamble to me joining Facebook. Now that I'm part of the party I predict its demise as a social networking tool. Sorry.
