Me included. I last played TS3 for like 10 minutes in February. It's not fun anymore.

Anywho, I'm not sure Facebook is completely taking over. Sure, it's something everyone uses but there are things you can do on a forum you can't do on there. I'm a member of a Harry Potter/Pottermore forum that is wildly active and very well run. And I completely thought forums were a dying breed. But it's been open for 8 months and showing no signs of slowing down.

Wow, dropping all my math project video files onto my computer really fragmented up that shit.
Now I have to move them... awkward.
AND FUCK YOU--ROCK AND ROLL!

i think forums for particular topics are still doing well—when everyone has common interests, there's always something to talk about. but social forums (like mikeinside, or pink imoen, or snooty's, or really most of the forums that are/were like this one) are definitely losing out to facebook, i think. i mean, snooty's is ostensibly a forum for people interested in the sims, but most people don't use it like that—hence its slowing down.

But Snooty's wasn't always that way. It's like there became two groups: people who post about Sims and the people in the Chatterbox forum. A lot of the people who posted in the Chatterbox forum went to others place, then left said places, and never returned back here. Like Charlie said, we haven't been replenishing members we've lost.

Anywho I do agree. Plus everything has to die sometime.

I know it is but it's also true. :l

Ehm and my current thoughts are:

I wonder how many more Rhynn has to send me.
I almost want Reb to send me a message so I can put that piece of poo on his place for being mean to Rhynn.
I've got so much to do and how dare she ask me to help today when she should have got off her ass and got all that stuff done yesterday when I was more than willing to help.
I need to rewrite for the original.
Why won't Ekko or Rhynn PM me back about the game stuff? Especially Ekko. Rhynn's busy, I know.

It's so weird how you age and age and age, and it never stops. Like, you'll never be a carefree kid again; you'll never again play on a playground in complete earnest or spend hours swimming a pool for fun—you just get older, and older, and older, and older and older. One day you're a kid running around while your dad watches over you, and then...suddenly you're the dad, standing there bored with babysitting. It's so uncomfortable—to have been a kid and to never be one again. I don't know if I can deal.

I do this too with certain friends! We went to a pub the other day and sat in the garden and there was a bouncy castle... Do you know how hard that would've been to resist? ;)
We let the kids use it first obvs. Then when they got off we went on :P

Seriously, Glee? Seriously??
Quinn was hit head-on by a freaking truck a month ago and she just randomly comes back to school looking no different?

Glee's had some weird, weird things happen over the years, but having a character emerge from a car wreck looking as bright and perky as ever has to be the weirdest by far.

Glee makes use of the "HERE'S SOMETHING DRAMATIC BUT WE'RE JUST GOING TO SKIP THE AFTERMATH and provide some exposition in an awkward classroom scene where Quinn had to explain what happened in the car crash" too often. Did no one visit her during her time in the hospital!? It was like no one knew what happened.

I hated how one of the first things she said to the group was "OMG don't drive and text guyzz, it's bad!"
It's as though Ryan Murphy and Co. are under the assumption that the majority of viewers are so completely dense that they don't make the connection between her using her phone and her getting T-boned by a big-ass truck.

As cheesy as they were, the scenes with just Artie and Quinn, especially the one where she's trying to wheel herself up the ramp, were by far my favourites of the episode. That scene in particular was one of the very few moments these days when I actually liked the acting.

I feel like they don't use any of the Glee cast much. Quinn getting in an accident and the wedding being called off could have been the basis of a really big and serious storyline where the whole cast could actually do some acting (I mean, how hard is it to sit in a classroom or walk down a hallway and chat? Even I can do that). Instead, we were just given some exposition via dialogue between characters and left to piece together what happened in our heads. I could do without the Sue getting pregnant (wtf btw) storyline and the "8 EPISODES FULL OF GUEST STARS" if it meant seeing some more character development. You know a storyline is going down the shitter when Blaine gets all the spotlight, despite the fact there was a car accident and a cancelled wedding (neither which involved him) in the previous episode...

I quit watching Glee about half way thought season 2. What I have just read doesn't make me want to start watching it again. :ton: I loved season 1 but it seems to have gone downhill from there.

My current thought is that I don't want leftovers for lunch but that's all I have so I guess I will go eat leftovers.
