: ) 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. --Cassie.Y Talk 07:09, December 26, 2014 (UTC)
- Its okay, don't worry about it, its not really a big deal. --Cassie.Y Talk 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)
