: ) Edit
Yes, thanks to you I have two archived talk pages! =) Well, there were others on there, but the majority was you. =D I've been nominated on the F.E.A.R. wiki for Administrator, as the current admin doesn't really have time anymore for edits and that I've been a large contributor over there the last few months. As there are no Burecrats there, so I can't set up a forum and vote like I could here, she set up a blog for users to say either "yay" or "nay." On the blog, someone voted for someone else that wasn't even nominated. I feel so loved. Bonehead. =/ Anyway...don't take this as "I'm never gonna see you again," 'cause it isn't. I'll still be here. =) And I'll take a look at your blog too. =) Leea (talk) 11:41, August 30, 2014 (UTC)
Hahaha...yes, they will find (more or less) my whole life story on your archived talk pages. Good for the researchers of the future, you know. Sorta just like how I told dad when he lost his sunglasses at the bottom of our pond, I told him, "Now the archeologists of the future, maybe a few hundred years from now, they will dig up this area looking for clues as to how the "primitive" peoples of 2014 lived, and they will find your sunglasses preserved in the mud. Then they will come to the conclusion that whomever lived here bought only cheap dollar store sunglasses." =P Leea (talk) 11:26, August 31, 2014 (UTC)
HAHAHAHAHA... Yes, they might come to conclusions that "This man, who went by the username "SaintPain," and whom this username "Leea" was conversing with, he had an odd writing style, replete with strange symbols that were not the traditional ":)" or ":(" and we still have no idea what they mean, though there are many theories. Our code specialists are hard at work trying to decode his messages, believing this "~@;@~" could be maybe a password, or passphrase for this "Leea." Of course, 200+ years will be too far in the future for my lifetime, so I won't be able to tell them that it was just your version of "uncertain face" or your unique "smiley face." =) Leea (talk) 15:40, August 31, 2014 (UTC)
Heh heh...I know what you mean, but: "She appeared to understand him, and his strange, unusual typing format. Perhaps, in another of these 'talk pages,' we could find the answer, or at least a clue as to what this 'SaintPain' meant with these unusual messages, other than that 'Leea' and 'SaintPain' appeared to like each other. As to why the people of the past communicated by these 'talk pages' that didn't even have a voice, or by something called a 'forum,' which we believe was intended for multiple users to talk in the same place, was a secret we may never find out." Leea (talk) 16:33, August 31, 2014 (UTC)
They apparently don't watch Supernatural. In truth, I've actually been waiting for you to say something of that nature so I could pop the "Dean Winchester" line again. =D As for the "story" of "John", I'm going to take it to a new direction, but I won't "spill the beans" here...you're just going to have to see on the blog. =) Leea (talk) 22:22, August 31, 2014 (UTC)
A mystery man! ... No, by "Joseph" I meant you. I call BrandonFox "Brandon," and for the story I though I'd call you by your first name, but if you want me to call you by your middle name, I'll just edit it and continue to talk to you in that manner. =) Leea (talk) 11:18, September 1, 2014 (UTC)
If you like being called by your middle name that's totally up to you, I know I could never go around calling myself "Alane," which is my middle name. I wonder where this "Tale of John the Vault Dweller" will go now, with it not being in the present anymore but the past? =P Leea (talk) 11:45, September 1, 2014 (UTC)
You know, funny thing is that I always wanted to write. Books and such, and short stories, but they never "got off the ground," so to speak, either because I was much younger and didn't know how to write stuff, or I didn't know as many "descriptive" words. I think that's where the Season Bottles came from, always wanting to write something. And now I get to write a story with my best friend! Someone who also likes to write, so I can bounce ideas off of! =) Leea (talk) 17:04, September 2, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, and another funny thing I was thinking about the other day is that a lot of names and words come from Latin or Greek, and the "scientific" plant names are all in Latin. I guess the emperors of the Roman Empire got what they wanted after all: the world is influenced by the Romans, even all these centuries later. Leea (talk) 11:26, September 3, 2014 (UTC)
Hey Saint, since you have become active (more or less), would you make a VIP comment for the Hole? In short, you can choose one of two characters to support by giving an unique comment. Just think of strengths/weaknesses the characters have, then write it on my talk page so I can add it.
Fallout stories Edit
Well, SaintPain was talking to Joseph, and though its possible that someone post-war could have a name like that, I thought it would be interesting if I could add a hologram into the story, even more a mysterious one that has abilities not known to holograms and has a personality of its own. As for the location, I thought of it as sort of a cross between Moriarty's Saloon and the House Resort, someplace that would actually have a holographic fireplace. I just hope I didn't do something wrong with your story. Leea (talk) 11:29, September 6, 2014 (UTC)
Eh, no. You should write about 4 sentences to have the comment put in the section. But, ah, it is just one day before the next edition, so you don't have to try; you could write the special comment in one of the newer editions (will warn you when).09:29, September 8, 2014 (UTC)
Well, I noted that the vote is over, you responded too late. However, I will give you another chance in one of the future editions in the Hole. Just make sure that you are ready for that moment.21:25, September 10, 2014 (UTC)
You know, I have so many Poll ideas that pop into my head that I had to put them all down on Notepad. But, unfortunately, sometimes I think of a great one, put later when I have time to turn on the computer, I can't remember the Poll! Isn't that familiar? You can't remember something when you need to (or want to), like during a conversation and you thought about something else in between, but, later, when it means nothing, you'll shout out "Yes! Now I remember what I was talking about!" And then it will mean...nothing. Hahaha. Leea (talk) 22:37, September 10, 2014 (UTC)
No, I was talking to you. My memory isn't that bad! But, on the other hand, if I start calling you by another name that isn't yours, get me some help, quick! =D Leea (talk) 11:35, September 11, 2014 (UTC)
Eh, I hope you'll never get the chance to use it...I don't think I've been exposed to the blue mist in that Vault too long...or had that many accumulated rads...Leea (talk) 22:32, September 11, 2014 (UTC)
Does - Kaldire♥those that know, will - mean anything to you? Some Assembly Required! 02:22, September 13, 2014 (UTC)
Relief from the oven outdoors! Edit
A cold front came in a few days ago and really cooled things down, almost like fall. It was really a relief from all those 90+ degree days! I also saw that you've been getting cooler temperatures. How's it all going? Tell me sometime! ♥ Leea (talk) 22:42, September 17, 2014 (UTC)
I know, but sometimes it seems that Summer lasts a heluva lot longer than the other seasons do, though maybe its just me, as I live closer to the equator than you do. Some years it just seemed that Summer went straight into Halloween! I prefer colder temps, though you may disagree with me on this one, because you'd have to have more snow, whereas I rarely have snow. =P Leea (talk) 22:44, September 19, 2014 (UTC)
Really? Hmm...I'll be 47 in 22 years...I can't believe it. You watch the Science Channel? I don't get cable or satellite, I get the old "rabbit ears" antenna TV. It's free, and that's all I could ask for, though sometimes the reception is so bad it makes me feel like taking out a gun and shooting it! Otherwise, its OK by my standards. To be honest, I don't really watch that much TV, just the news and weather, and sometimes a cooking or traveling show on the state's public stations. What sorts of stuff do you watch? Leea (talk) 15:58, September 21, 2014 (UTC)
Heh heh. Thanks for the poem. I am currently thankful that Fall has (finally!) made it here. I'd write about it, but then how would I make a new Autumn Bottle to surpass the old one? (chuckle) I'll give you another Autumn Bottle Magic present, however. To relive the magic, you know.
I was going over the comments at the Recipe Wiki, because there is a foods contest, about which is the best Fantasy Food. Its on EnergyX's blog and on Nukapdeia's front page, too, if you wanna vote. It's the last vote, Nuka-Cola against something called "Smile Dip." I was amazed at how cruel, mean, and hostile people can get in the comments. Of course, there have been holy-hell arguments here about things, but I still find it amazing how mean people can be when you want to do something else other than what they wanted you to vote or. Its just a community vote about a fantasy food! Leea (talk) 11:52, September 25, 2014 (UTC)
Your efforts and diligence have not gone unnoticed, and you have been given a small token of appreciation.
Yeah...unfortunately, the human race will almost always be willing to give out pain and misery, and even some people will be mean just for the hell of it! Of course, not everyone is the same, but it seems to be that more and more people are getting meaner. I think that's why God made some animals cute and cuddly. Someone to hug and try to forget all the mean people in the world. You know what I mean? Leea (talk) 11:52, September 26, 2014 (UTC)
I have been really busy lately, but I just might have to take you up on your offer. :) Keep the role-play going, and I will see what I can muster up come Monday! Some Assembly Required! 03:36, September 27, 2014 (UTC)
Well, you have been chosen to be the commentator once more. Like before, write a couple of sentences here about the character you support; its strengths and its opponent's weaknesses, so I can include it in the blog spot. Hardin battles Jingwei in the finals.19:33, September 28, 2014 (UTC)
All right, it was added.11:21, September 29, 2014 (UTC)
Just see what missing letter on businesses can lead to! Edit
I thought I'd share this funny tidbit with you: We went to Bay St. Louis yesterday (its on the coastline), and on the way there, we passed a used car sales business. One of the letters had fallen off, turning "AUTO SALES" into "UTO SALES." So I said, "Does that mean he specializes in Unidentified Terestrial Objects?" Get it? Hehehe. Leea (talk) 22:36, October 3, 2014 (UTC)
Ha. In almost the same context, there's a hardware business in Picayune (the closest town) that has most of the letters fallen off the outside of the building. They used to spell out "APPLIANCES," "SPORTING GOODS," and "BUILDING MATERIALS." But now, since most of the letters have fallen off (or taken as a souvenir by some vandal) over the years, the letters that are left now spell out: "SPRTNG GOD," and "BULDNG MAERIALS." Only "APPLIANCES" remains untouched (so far). There was another word on the outside of the building long ago, but all the letters have fallen off and its been so long since it used to be a whole word that I no longer remember what it was. Hahaha. Leea (talk) 11:26, October 5, 2014 (UTC)
Saint's Pains & even Gods come to us all in odd ways from time to time to remind us that we all run or rot as fodder in some war we never voted for but all fight every day & then are judged unjustly for being borne into.
- Yeah I got issues ~;P

How do you think I'm doing with my parts of John's story? I'm mostly drawing from my own experiences, and my (no doubt "combat medic") medical knowledge. How's it look so far? Leea (talk) 22:45, October 6, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! That makes me feel great, it really does. No sarcasm there. But weird thing is, I can make the words flow through my fingertips when typing from a keyboard, but it doesn't work too great when I actually try writing with a pen or pencil. I can paint OK, but writing any story (not letters, I can do those OK) on paper is difficult. Does that make me crazy? Leea (talk) 22:29, October 7, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I know what you mean. I still have trouble with writing in script lowercase bs, ds, gs, qs, and ps. I used to have more trouble, but I got a little better, it used to be when I'd write "dad" it ended up being "bad," and I still have some trouble with it. Not so with printing, but I'm so used to script when I write something on paper that I now find actually printing alphabets hard. I guess why I have trouble with lowercase g's, q's and p's is because they look similar. How do you like John's encounter with a post-war prostitute? It was inspired by Supernatural season 6, in an episode where Sam and Dean travel back in time to the cowboy days and are in a saloon. Dean expects the "girls" to look like they do in old western movies, but the girl grins and has brown teeth and he is totally disgusted. I thought it'd be fun to have a similar reaction from John in the story. =D Leea (talk) 11:40, October 9, 2014 (UTC)
Well, turns out I won't be doing any Saturday Polls after all. Brandon rolled over me and chose Jasper because he didn't think I'd be good at weekly blogs. And here I was excited about doing the Polls. What a bummer. Another thing to be irked about. Leea (talk) 15:57, October 12, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I know. It would turn out to be a big mess that everyone would remember a long ways into the future if I made a fuss, so I'm just going to have to let it be, even though that's not a nice thing to have done; asking someone if they could replace you, more or less saying you got the post, then changing their mind later and appointing someone else. What always irked me was that he wouldn't post some of my ideas, even though they were just fine and perfectly usable. (sigh) Just another disappointment in along list of remembered disappointments. Leea (talk) 18:04, October 15, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you Edit
Thank you. I need hugs, weather they be virtual or physical. I can't even remember the last time I had a hug from someone who actually meant it. That's sad, isn't it? =( Leea (talk) 21:53, October 18, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks again. ♥ The computer monitor busted yesterday, after 11 years. I dunno the average life expectancy of those things, but I guess that's pretty good. We had a flat screen TV we don't use, so we bought a special cable to connect it to the PC today, and I just hooked it up. Now I'm just gonna have to get used to the flat screen and slightly different colors, cause the old busted one was the old "glass tube" type, and the LCD TV displays colors a little differently. I couldn't believe how light the TV is, compared to the heavy son-of-a-bitch the busted monitor was. I guess it had every right to be heavy, it was a 17 inch screen. Leea (talk) 19:23, October 20, 2014 (UTC)
Hahahaha. It's a little bigger than the old monitor. I think the TV is 22 or 23 inches, I don't quite remember. Still, it is bigger than the old one, 'cause the old one was 17 inches. Still getting used to it. What size monitor do you use? Leea (talk) 11:34, October 21, 2014 (UTC)e
I use a laptop on line ~ I think it is like 26 inches.. Not sure..

Well, now! I know about (and have eaten!) a food that you have not heard about! This is a surprise! =P There are a few varieties of crunchy persimmons, they have the consistency of apples, more or less. Though you still have to wait for the skin to turn an orange color. Letting them get "overripe" will make them into the same liquid fruit that their non-crunchy cousins are. They are quite tasty, and you don't have to have the worry when eating them that you do when eating the liquid ones; unless you don't let them get overripe, they don't dribble down your chin. =D Leea (talk) 11:29, October 31, 2014 (UTC)
Veteran's Day present EditI'm sorry I've been busy lately, you must have wondered where I've gone! Not to worry, I have not forgotten about you. =) I thought that I'd gift a different Veteran's Day present this year: a picture of a lovely sunset on Halloween evening. Enjoy friend! Leea (talk) 22:45, November 10, 2014 (UTC)
It's a sunset. I thought I'd be different by taking pretty pictures of Halloween sunsets, rather than the usual Horror movies and scary stuff. Not that that kind of stuff is not interesting to me, I just thought it would be nice to be a little different. Hehehehe...did I find a magic word? If you're down and out, should I whisper in your ear "Halloween" and you'll feel all better? =P Leea (talk) 21:17, November 13, 2014 (UTC)
Heh heh..I'll remember that for future use. =) It's been pretty cold lately, and I wore mittens this morning to keep my hands warm, though I concluded that while the upside of mittens is that they will keep your fingers warm, the downside is that there is zero dexterity. It more or less goes out the window. Leea (talk) 22:37, November 15, 2014 (UTC)
Heh heh heh. But it really does. There basically is no dexterity. Try to point at something, and you have to point with your whole hand. Attempt to pick up a cup, and you find out that your mittened hand does not fit in the handle. You have to pick up the cup with both hands, and then the thoughts of the cup slipping out of your grasp (due to the soft yarn) is prominent in your mind. Want another musing? =P
- I had some "Little Links" the other day. They are canned soy hot-dogs, so they are vegetarian, and perfect for me. But they do not have the coloring of the "Big Franks," another type of vegetarian hot-dog (which are colored a vague red), so the Little Links are a pale tan color. Dad called them "Zombie fingers," due to their small size and resemblance to fingers. So I joked later "Hey Dad, want to join me for some Zombie fingers?" Then we laughed and I started to muse out loud that if you had a silicone mold of a hand, you could make a soy hand shape, because for Thanksgiving there are kits for turkey-shaped soy dinners. So why not a hand-shaped soy meal? You could even coat it in ketchup, for more "real" factor. For Halloween only, can you imagine the faces if you served it any other time, especially if they didn't share you sense of humor? Hehehe. Leea (talk) 12:46, November 21, 2014 (UTC)
But with actual zombie fingers, you will become a zombie later, but with soy hot-dogs, there is no chance whatsoever of becoming the undead. =D I saw a trailer a few days ago for a, what would you call it? Probably a "men's fantasy" movie. All it was was that two nerds make a device that lands them in a place that's only populated by women that look like Playboy bunnies and lacked any intellect whatsoever. It was named "In the Valley," but I mentally renamed it "In the valley of the bimbos." Where did I find this trailer? I didn't go looking for it, it was on a DVD of a horror movie, if you can believe that. Leea (talk) 12:18, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
I do get worried when you don't stop by in along while... Edit
I really do. Please do check in sometime, I get worried about you when you're gone for a long time. I hope you didn't eat yourself to death during Thanksgiving, or have a heart attack shoveling your way out of snow. Come back, man! ♥ Leea (talk) 23:04, December 5, 2014 (UTC)
hey pal Edit
Glad to hear from you! Edit
I miss you too. I hope you at least come back at regular intervals, though. Yeah, I know what you mean. I've had a...I guess you could call it a "hunger" for a good-quality fantasy-genre game, so I bought Elder Scrolls: Skyrim a week ago or so. Really great game, really allows you to "get lost" in the world. And by "get lost" I mean that I'm immersed, not actually lost, which is always frustrating. =D I've edited over at the Elder Scrolls wiki, and to say that my grammar-editing skills are "undervalued" would be an understatement. They've more or less told me that putting "personal opinions" about the pages' content in the "summary" box is almost breaking the law, and I've made "pointless edits" by editing grammar. How is grammar "pointless"? It's moments like that that really make me think "Why the hell do I bother with this? At least they know me at the Fallout wiki." I've seen plenty of "personal opinions" in the editing summaries here, so it must just be the people in charge over there. Argh. Leea (talk) 12:57, December 18, 2014 (UTC)
I'm usually around here about 6:00 AM Central Time, 'till about 7:00 or 8:00, though on Sundays I can be here 'till about 12:00 Noon. I don't know if Indiana is in Central Time zone, though. Its one of those things I never seem to remember. Sometimes I'm around wikis at about 5:00 PM, though not that often. Oh, and here's your Christmas present: a poster from Bioshock. Enjoy! Leea (talk) 12:21, December 21, 2014 (UTC)
Same to you, Saint. I wish you and your family a healthy year and one with finally some solid Fallout 4 news. Jspoel 14:17, December 25, 2014 (UTC)
- Thank you and happy holidays to you also. I didn't do cards this year, so I reckon good old fashioned heartfelt good wishes will have to do. Go Army and Semper Fi. 14:55, December 25, 2014 (UTC)
Merry Christmas and a happy new yearEdit
I would like to use the Christmas-wishes-tradition to thank those around me who kept this wiki and daily life more fun for me during the past year. Everything just seems so normal and evident that we are here almost every day, yet it's very worthwhile to consider for a moment how wonderful it is to have all of you around me, making editing and being on chat a lot more enjoyable. I would also like to use this opportunity to wish a happy and healthy new year for you and everyone around you, with perseverance in tough times, but most of all, with wonderful moments among enjoyable friends and family. Merry Christmas, and a very happy new year in which all your wishes may come true! - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 17:53, December 25, 2014 (UTC)
Merry Christmas as well. Hopefully we won't have to wait much for Fallout 4 (or whatever its name is).18:58, December 25, 2014 (UTC)
Hi there SaintPain, sorry I have to revert your edit on my sandbox since its not the place to send a message. But if you want thou, feel free to send me one on my talkpage. Thanks and Merry Christmas. --吉野Cassie Talk to me! ✿ 07:09, December 26, 2014 (UTC)
- Its okay, don't worry about it, its not really a big deal. --吉野Cassie Talk to me! ✿ 07:21, December 26, 2014 (UTC)
New games? Edit
I've looked at every spec of my computer online, and I'm afraid it simply cannot play any game past one that would have been made in 2005. They skimped on the graphics card, otherwise, everything else is great. I would have loved to join you, but it simply isn't possible to play newer games on my PC. I hope you'll forgive me. And I hope you had a great 25th, it was just another day for me, though I did have a rootbeer, and I hardly ever find one that doesn't have weird sweeteners or unpronounceable words in the ingredients. Hahahaha. Leea (talk) 12:45, December 26, 2014 (UTC)
Well even if you can't play ~ Sucks BTW ~ If you joined steam we could still speak in real time.
SaintPain→ Here to help." 16:52, December 26, 2014 (UTC)
I saw your joke blog, and I think its a good idea to try and get people talking and interacting... I hate to be a killjoy though, but could I trouble you to maybe change the jokes? We're a bit worried that blonde jokes might seem a bit sexist to some people... Thanks for considering it. Agent c (talk) 17:32, December 26, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for agreeing not to post more. The blog has raised some head scratchers amongst the admins... I wasn't the first to notice it, another admin asked me if I thought it was against policies... And to be honest I'm not sure. We don't have a specific anti-blonde-discrimination stance, but blonde jokes come with a certain understanding that the "blonde" is a female, so it could be sexist.
Other admins looking after I sent you the message were tempted to delete it - we had to refrain them from doing so.
I know this wiki seems to be getting to the point of every minor issue needing a major drama and heated forum, but I'd rather not have a discussion entitled "are blonde jokes allowed" - except maybe on April 1... An approved joke list would just be insane.
New Year's Edit
Sigh. I should have checked here long ago to see that you replied on your page instead of mine. Oh, and I'll consider your request for "just joining up to talk." ... I hope that doesn't sound too "business-like." Haha. I hope you will have a good New Year's. Don't drink yourself to death, now. =P Leea (talk) 12:32, December 31, 2014 (UTC)
I really hope you're joking. Waking up with people you don't know from Adam and can't remember what you've done with them (or anything at all) the night before is the stuff of nightmares, or at least to me it would be. Leea (talk) 12:21, January 1, 2015 (UTC)
Cold War blogEdit
Thanks for sharing the story (and hopefully more to come), this is really interesting. I would have loved to reply on you blog itself, but i was unableto press the publish button. My guess is that the right side banner with the Star-Spangled banner got over it. - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 13:56, January 10, 2015 (UTC)
I'm sorry I have not been that communicative lately, it got real cold a week ago or so...temperatures were in the teens, which it almost never gets to. I helped with a lot of the cold-weather preparing, so didn't have much time to spend online. Anyway, I thought you'd like to hear a joke, I thought you'd find it funny. I read it in an old book long time ago, which makes it really old:
An Indian (you know, from India) wants to go to America, but he doesn't know any English, and tells his friend this. His friend replies, "Oh, you don't need to know English. The only words in English you need to know are 'yes,' 'no,' and 'very good.'"
So the man that only knew 'yes,' 'no,' and 'very good' came to America, did well for a while, and was even employed.
But one day, the boss' watch was missing.
The boss asks the new arrival (the Indian): "Did you take my watch?"
"Give it back then!"
"Then you will go to jail."
Somehow, explaining jokes always takes all the funny out of them, but I'm going to do it anyway: He only knew those four words, and I also speculate that he didn't know the meaning behind them, so in his dialogue with his boss, the Indian used up his whole bank of English words, albeit that wrong way. The way he said the words also makes me think that he got used to saying them in that order, so he used them in that order in the wrong circumstance; the boss' watch. Leea (talk) 12:50, January 15, 2015 (UTC)
Happy Birthday! Edit
Happy Birthday! Don't eat too much birthday cake. In addition to calories, there's always the chance that you can get heartburn. =P I suppose its obvious that I didn't take this picture now, because the yard doesn't look like this now, because it froze recently.
Your efforts and diligence have not gone unnoticed, and you have been given a small token of appreciation.
Your welcome. =) I accidentally dropped my headphones the other day, and though they did not break, the sound is a little louder in one ear than it is in the other one. They just don't make things the way they used to, that they can't even really survive a fall from two feet without changing somehow. I'm sure you know what I mean. I need to get a "back-up" next time I get to town, in case the headphones decide to break for good some day. Leea (talk) 12:50, January 21, 2015 (UTC)
I thought you'd be happy to know I graduated OSUT at Benning and I'm an infantryman. Our Drill Sergeants all hated MP's though, on our Christmas run we did a cadence about how you can't spell "Wimp" without "MP". No hate though, I'm at Fort Irwin now. And I was gone, but happy (very) late Veterans Day. "Float" 02:26, January 27, 2015 (UTC)

Hey old bud, what's goin' on? I hope you will have a little better weather today than I will, its only supposed to be in the high 40's today, with lots of wind to make you even colder! Its the kind of wind that really messes up my hair. I'm not being that kind of lady that always worries about her hair, but unless I've got a hat or headband on, my hair has a tendency at the slightest breeze to go...poof! I don't use any "hair products," such as hairspray or styling gel, so on windy days, unless I take precaution and wear a hat, I end up with a blonde afro. Leea (talk) 12:42, February 2, 2015 (UTC)
Well, yesterday I talked about getting blonde afros, but I had a hat on and so I didn't suffer the indignity of gravity-proof super-frizzy hair. =P Well, there was a hard freeze last night. I hate that. You get a freeze (or freezes), a while goes by where everything starts to come back, and then you get another freeze that kills off (or damages) what was growing back. Argh! Leea (talk) 12:40, February 3, 2015 (UTC)
I as watching the news this morning, and I heard that some guy in Biloxi wants to cut down 62 100+ year old oak trees in this one spot to build a...Walmart. That's nuts! The proposal is going to the city board, and I hope that they won't go with the side of the builder. You'll get the revenue and the jobs, but those trees are like a national resource, it'll be more than a century till you get trees like that again. Just like they cut down a bunch of old trees for a dumb baseball stadium they're building down there, and no one down here even really watches baseball, they watch football, just because the city wanted the revenue! I need to stop with this letter at some point, or it'll turn into what dad calls "Kishori's Soapbox moment." But, ugh, what dumb ideas some people have...Leea (talk) 12:52, February 19, 2015 (UTC)
Hey, I haven't heard from you in a while. I suppose it is part my fault, getting a new game and all, but I wish to hear from you sometime just to know that you didn't get stuck in a snow drift. Even though we don't talk as much as we used to anymore (life offline does get in the way, doesn't it?), I still do consider you my best friend.♥ Leea (talk) 11:34, March 11, 2015 (UTC)
Sounds like you're really in the doldrums. What's going on? You can tell me if you want to, but I will not pressure you into anything. Remember, I'm only a talkpage message away. Or you could give me your email, then we might be able to talk a little more there. Whichever way, remember that I'll always have warm wishes for you. ♥ Leea (talk) 12:10, March 14, 2015 (UTC)
But you are loved. A lot of the people here love you, and I love you. There are many types of love, and the love you feel for your true, deep friends is one of them. I hate to see you like this, more so because I can't do much of anything to help you. Leea (talk) 12:09, March 27, 2015 (UTC)
Guess whose back Edit
Nice to see you're back(ish). What you been doing in the meantime? I just done recently replaying Saints Row: The Third and had a lot of crazy fun. I plan on playing Saints Row 4 sometime for the first time. It looks hilarious and fun with its alien invasion and parodies and superpowers.
Hey, Saint! I have always enjoyed your stories, and I remember how much fun you had with the Apprentice and Strategic Nuclear Moose. I figured, because of all of that, that I would alert you to this forum, as I am very interested in hearing your opinion!
Hope to hear from you soon - I have to admit, I have missed talking to your sorry hide lately. :'D User:Sarkhan the Sojourner 20:34, August 6, 2015 (UTC)
- I can be really dumb... I almost forgot to tell you that this is Leon (GarouxBloodline). Recently had my name changed, and I keep forgetting that not everyone knows that yet. xD User:Sarkhan the Sojourner 20:38, August 6, 2015 (UTC)
Eh, you made this comment months late. It was entirely optional to make this comment, but nevertheless it is late. Jasper was supposed to make the Hole entries, but, for some reason, it hasn't been updated in weeks. Appreciate the concern, though.09:03, August 7, 2015 (UTC)
New Fallout Edit
Yes, new games do that to a wiki, right? A constant ebb and flow of people. Sorta like you put a bunch of v's together: VVVVVVVV New game: up point in activity. Too much time passes between games: low activity. I'd warrant that there's a bunch of people who sign on during the "up point" stay for an amount of time, and then leave later and not come back. But, then, there's always those gnarled old suckers like you and me (and a few others) that sign up and stay. 2009 was a long time ago. I should be getting my Nukapedia pension by now. =P Leea (talk) 11:54, August 9, 2015 (UTC)
How you interact with people in chatEdit
Rule 8 of the chat rules states that whining is a banable offense, it reads;
Whining. Users who ask for something from another chat user and are refused it should not stoop to complaining. It is acceptable to be persistent, but in a mature manner.”
This extends to moaning when people disagree with you. You cannot moan and claim someone is personally attacking you every time someone disagrees with you, especially when what you claimed wasn't even remotely true. If you wish to be part of this chat room (and this wiki, for that matter) I am afraid you need to learn to hear other people's opinions without taking offense.
The following is the chat log for the conversation in question:
SaintPain: There are ways and means to play all factions & unite others.. It is all in how you play.. A world with a united democratically represented waist land with New Vegas & all the tech from Big MT ~ That could save the world ~ End game 11:45
JASPER42: Well not quite 11:46
Paladin11: ....except you can't have the Legion and NCR at the same time 11:46
JASPER42: And House wont let the BOS live 11:46
Rambleing Hominid: Give atomic energy and quantum manipulation to bandits, survivalists, and race purisits? 11:46
JASPER42: and the remenents wont side with indie or house because reasons. 11:47
The Enclave is Bae has left the Wasteland.
Paladin117: actually, Legion doesn't really work with any faction. 11:47
BrandonFox: Still curious as to what ending will be picked as canon. 11:47
Paladin117: hard to say 11:47
JASPER42: and the big empty tech that is in the mojave has fucked it over 11:47
Paladin117: IIRC, Independent was the most popular 11:47
Sigmund Fraud: Independent 11:47
JASPER42: Cazadors, Nightstalkers... 11:48
BrandonFox: It's just nice that Indie is the only one where you do things your own way and not be a kingmaker for someone else. 11:49
SaintPain: That is why House dies.. Yes Man has full access ~ House was out of touch & even hated by his own followers.. The player walked & talked to all factions.. He or she THE PLAYER should guide 11:49
Paladin117: except Legion.. 11:49
BrandonFox: I just killed House because I had to get the a slave obeys challenge. 11:49
Paladin117 and heck, even the NCR isn't happy afterwards 11:50
Rambleing Hominid: Eh, I had debts to pay and my guy was about as Charismatic as a garden gnome. Plus, he saved my fellows life and he didn't like debts. 11:50
JASPER42: But if you kill house you have not united all factions, which is the premise 11:50
SaintPain: But they Legion can be lead on until the final battle.. Even they would respect such a strategic opponet 11:51
JASPER42 No, they would be pissed off that you murder them all 11:51
Paladin117: no, they turn hostile when you get too far in any questline but theirs 11:51
BrandonFox: ^ 11:51
JASPER42 They would consider you a traitor and a coward. I hate to break it to you, but the military tends to dislike spies and saboteurs in their ranks 11:52
BrandonFox: Darn 11:52
JASPER42: THe NCR hardly react well when they find out about the legion spy 11:52
Rambleing Hominid: Besides, were on the other side of the continent, The Legion east of the Divide are still probably functioning as always. Only thing I can see affecting our eastern tale would be the Divide's ending. 11:52
SaintPain: Then the Legion would be driven out by a superior force of all the other united factions 11:53
-bleep196- has entered the Wasteland.
BrandonFox: I'd be fine with Indie or House being canon 11:53
JASPER42 But then you have not united ALL factions like you originally said. Thus the premise has not been reached 11:53
Paladin117: I still hate House's backstory, why didn't he have his army ready before the game's events 11:53
Sigmund Fraud: Cuz he's an idiot. Duh 11:54
BrandonFox: But but... House was first in his class here at M.I.T. He's got skills, he's a Champion of D&D. 11:55
SaintPain: Ok but I did it... It is not a fiction.. In game.. All factions LOVED ME ~ Even the Legion ~ " Untill the last battle !! ~ it can BE DONE ! 11:55
Paladin117: except that's literally impossible... 11:56
BrandonFox: It's impossible for the Legion to like you if you do not side with them. They will turn against you if you go too far in any other's quests. The main idea of New Vegas is you can't get EVERYONE to like you. 11:57
Paladin117: * Paladin117 grumbles about House 11:57
SaintPain: The key is ~ Stealth : They don't see it.. They don't know you did it 'till It's DONE 11:57
Paladin117: except stealth doesn't affect quests being completed, which is the key. once you do certain quests, they turn hostile 1:57
BrandonFox: It's not about stealth. The game tracks your quest progress. When you do 2 or more quests for a faciton other than the legion, they turn hostile. 11:59
SaintPain: If no faction sees you act against them reputation just keeps getting higher on all sides 11:59
Paladin117: nope 11:59
BrandonFox: If you do quests other THAN the legion ones, they WILL turn against you. 11:59
Pagani Zonda F has left the Wasteland.
Paladin117: they know whether you do quests whether they see it or not 11:59
BrandonFox: It's all part of the beware of the wrath of caesar quest. 12:00
JASPER42: it really does not. Don't Tread on the Bear! 12:00
Sigmund Fraud:Fuck yes, more corn. * Sigmund Fraud party dance 12:00
JASPER42: Step 1: complete any Legion, Mr. House or Yes Man questlines. Step 2: continuing aforementioned questlines. Then you fail the quest and the NCR label you a terrorist 12:01
Paladin117: although the NCR doesn't turn hostile like the Legion does 12:01
Sigmund Fraud: Can you be unbranded? 12:01
BrandonFox: NCR don't label you as a terrorist if you're working for House or yes man. 12:01
Paladin117: since they're basically everywhere 12:01
JASPER42 " Each faction quest has a specific trigger and failure point." 12:01
BrandonFox: Only if it's Legion. 12:01
JASPER42 " The Independent path will trigger it upon the completion of either Wild Card: Change in Management or Wild Card: Side Bets, then fail upon the completion of the other. "12:02
SaintPain: No & No I beat the game many meny times.. Just try it.. Reputation DOSE NOT CHANGE IF ACTS OF AGRESSION are NOT SEEN. Been there. Know it as fact. 12:02
Paladin117 : everyone has tried it and it's not fact 12:03
BrandonFox: Saint.... for the last time. It's not about whether they see you or not. Just completing more than 2 quests for a faction other than the legion will cause them to become hostile with you. 12:03
Sigmund Fraud: Dammit, you're out on the town for 9 and a half hours, and you STILL can't find anything useful? >:( 12:03
SaintPain: Then you got caught.. I did not 12:03
Paladin117 : it's impossible to not get caught. you just weren't paying attention. 12:04
NotAKern: Then your game is bugged or something because it doesn't matter if you're stealthy about it or not 12:04
SaintPain: Stealth .. Spears & throwing knives 12:04
Paladin117: won't do a thing because it's # of quests completed 12:05
BrandonFox: *sigh* I do Yes Man's change in management. Then I complete side bets and report this to yes man in the lucky 38. Legion turns hostile after these. Regardless. Saint, your game must be bugged or something. 12:06
JASPER42: A script triggers when you have completed certain quests, regardless of fame or infamy with those factions 12:07
Paladin117: and whether you're seen or not.. 12:07
JASPER42: this is not a matter of infamy, this is a matter of you going too far in one factions questline and then failing the opposing factions quest lines. Go play the game again, because you clearly need to refresh your memory 12:09
BrandonFox: How can something so simple need so much explanation... 12:10
RobotLord662 has entered the Wasteland.
BrandonFox: I need to go now. It's really late. Have a good night Jasp. 12:10
JASPER42: you too o/ 12:10
Paladin117: o/ 12:10
Sigmund Fraud: I would say bye but my name isn't Jasp :( 12:11
Paladin117 : now, back on topic why did house do nothing until 2274... 12:11
NotAKern: Uggghhhhhh 12:11
BrandonFox has left the Wasteland.
Sigmund Fraud: How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? 12:11
SaintPain: Paladin117, I really knew you knew more than just a blind hatred for me.. Every thing I said tonight was true.. You refuse it NOT because you tried again.. But because I said it.. You rally should just try again.. I am Not your enemy.. Just try again.. Please ?.. I will go now.. Let all cool down.. I am just here to have fun ~&~ Help when I can. 12:12
Kittynator has left the Wasteland.
JASPER42: uuuuuuuuugggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh 12:12
NotAKern: Jesus fucking Christ 12:12
Paladin117:* Paladin117 sighs 12:12
JASPER42: No pain, no. Just because people disagree with you doesn't mean they hate you 12:12
Sigmund Fraud: Shiet if I thought that I'd be sadder than I am already. Also someone tell that to Onion.
SaintPain has left the Wasteland.
The log runs from the moment you started the topic to the moment it ended (when you left). It is unedited except for formatting, and could be verified by anyone present and active at the time if if so needed. Paladin does not once insult you throughout, so your response is uncalled for and unfairly slanders him. If you feel he was personally attacking you, please direct us to specific quotes from the above log. The fact of the matter is, what you said is incorrect and paladin (along with myself, brandonfox and NotAKern) was just stating facts. He was not attacking anyone.
Now, I'm going to have to request that you stop accusing people of attacking you as this happens regularly when you are in chat. It makes chat feel very unwelcome to have a man accuse you of attacking him just because they share different opinions. If someone does outright insult you then yes, feel free to state such, but here (as is often the case) nobody was insulting anyone.
To make it very clear, if you wish to continue using our chat room then please refrain from such behavior. You claim that you want to be friendly with people, then maybe you should try and act like it because frankly the person who is being hostile so far has been you. JASPER//"Do you like hurting other people?" 23:50, August 18, 2015 (UTC)
- I post this on my own talk page that is where the bulk of " Other " opinions are stated.
I see soo many of some of your points..
- Yes in the END GAME hail Marry play.. It would call for the murder of House & Cesar.. The NCR would surely & rightly feel played as the PUNKS they are.. MY POINT IS : They can all be played against each other until that final hour when all those POSERS are brought low for their attempts to manipulate the player & find they have all been PLAYED. Been there.. DONE IT !! ~ Stealth is the key * UNTIL the end.. If they don't KNOW by see'n or hearing you steal, use blade skills like an ancient ninja sniper.. They will not blame you until you take YOUR STAND ~ Only player interacts with all factions.. Only the PLAYER has any chance to unite those who remain.. THAT IS MY POINT ~ NO disrespect ~ Just FACT.

Miss you! Edit
Hiya, old chum. I'm sorry I've been busy and that we haven't talked nearly as much as we used to. What have you been doing? Miss you, I haven't seen you around the polls or the wiki. Hope you're OK. ♥ Leea (talk) 11:33, October 18, 2015 (UTC)
Well, you could use an image-editing program, like Picasa or Adobe Photoshop. But I don't think it is that important, for most of the existing map images also have the pointer.
Just saying that you can upload the images with the pointer, from now on, until the editor tool arrives.
Oh, and welcome back.09:05, December 12, 2015 (UTC)
Response (belatedly) Edit
Good luck to you and yours Edit
Happy new year!Edit
I would like to use the Christmas/New Year-wishes-tradition, though I'm a week late, to thank those around me who kept this wiki and daily life more fun for me during the past year. Everything just seems so normal and evident that we are here almost every day, yet it's very worthwhile to consider for a moment how wonderful it is to have people like you around me, making editing and being on chat a lot more enjoyable. I would also like to use this opportunity to wish a happy and healthy new year for you and everyone around you who is dear to you. I hope you'll have a great and healthy new year in which all your wishes may come true! - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 00:11, January 6, 2016 (UTC)
