I watched him on Batman at home after school. I also loved all the times he voiced himself in cartoons.

A bit of both;

Joy: We found a kitty cat! It came up to our door while it was storming. SUPER sweet cat. It loves cuddles, gives lots of kisses, and enjoys being pet.

Sorrow: We can't keep it. We have yet to find the owners, but we are going to probably take it to the pound.

I never got to know him that well, but I'm really sad to hear he passed on. But he's not hurting anymore, and he'll be remembered!

Joy: I had so much fun at Anthrocon! I miss it already.

Didn't know him too well. Still, such a shame that we've lost someone to such a disease.

Problem: one of the tenants in my building apparently dislikes another of our neighbors being a psychologist enough to throw threats around.
I need to find a new building...

Well I talked to one of my managers and she said that I shouldn't go. She said they would help me out with more shifts or I could work mornings or be host. The problem is the pay because since I'm a server I get less per hour because I get tips but barely because people are cheap. So I said I would see how the rest of July goes.

Rage : someone reported my facebook account under fake name , which is true, but that "fake" name is my consistent internet name through everything , games , chatroom, forum, it's literally what 90% of my friends know me by. Even my real life friends call me "ser" most of the time, but, since it's a fake name and facebook demand ID, I can't get my account back without changing into my real name, which would confuse all of them anyway because they don't know my real name, I have always been Serence to them, to all 250+ of them. So even if I do that I would still have to contact each and everyone saying "hey it's me , ser, I got forced to change into my real name , so yeah, this is gonna be confusing", and i'm not gonna risk the only peace i have online by giving away my name like that.

Sorrow: I lost like, a lot, friends I only keep in contact after the games we played together shut down , friends from high school and college, some people I watch from the distance, just to be able to tell myself that "yeah, they're still ok". I can't even tell them that i'm gone because there's no other way to contact them, and some of those people I don't want to actually talk to them, explaining things and open up old wounds again. What worst is that i've been telling myself that I would definitely quit facebook no problem, and yet this still bothers me, a lot.

Joy : a little joy though, 2 days from now I will have a very special day.

sorry to hear serence, I know Karishad had that happen to him a while back. I don't remember how he got around that, it's stupid that they don't accept nicknames, they really need to fix that. you could try a new account but you'd have to re-add all those friends. and the same thing could happen.

considering they can be talked into creating exploitable loopholes in nearly all of their rules, id say more lazy than incompetent.

Sorrow: my family had to put our cat down this morning. He was really getting old, to the point where he had trouble controlling his bowel movements. I made sure I was with him when he died.
I am so tired of the people I look up to turning out to be jerks.

You ever realize that the two longest pieces of literature in existence are both fanfics? Weird right?

I think there's a nickname option! So you could be shown as "Firstname 'Serence' McLastnamerson" or something.
