RL Imitates UO

Discussion in 'UHall' started by uoBuoY, Jul 1, 2008.

    So I'm sitting in my gameroom/office (note the implied sequential priority!) looking out the window on all the RL sailboats returning to English Bay, Vancouver, after what must have been, a beautiful on the ocean.

    I am inspired to get out on the bounding UO main and chase a few of my 250 dust-gathering MIBs.

    I love this game

    Hehehe. It has that sorta power about it. Its boring me to death right now, but it always makes me come back.

    As far as imitating real life, there are three things I see on the way to work in the morning that always reminds me of UO.

    1. A real estate office named Paragon Realty.

    2. What I think is an office complex, one of the offices is named Kirin.

    3. Theres a poster for a dance/rave being advertised, called Lettin Yaself Go, except the "L" on Lettin has been removed/destroyed somehow, so it reads Ettin. Hehehehe.

    After our black cat died, another black cat showed up on our doorstep. Nobody knew where he came from. I'm convinced he spawned. He's still with us. Lord British rules the universe.

    Youd laugh less if it spawned as a paragon! Would make dinner times far more scary.

    Skin it for the hides and scales (do eels even have scales?) and/or take it to the Travesty to be made into sushi. Unagi!

    Ok, so a while after reading and responding here, it's time to feed my cats. We ran out of the soft stuff and my cats a pissed!! Well All I could think about was this thread and the paragon pet spawn. :gee:

    Ive roughly translated the only cat word I know, "MEOW", to mean one thing, "NOW!".

    My wife has 4 cats (notice how I do not claim ownership of any of them). 3 of them purchased, 1 is a stray that comes around at dinner time. I imagine it resembles something of a Doom gauntlet run, on crack. There she is, 2 cans of cat food and 4 slightly agitated, pissed off kitty cats all wanting MEAT, FRESH MEAT.

    I tell you this much, if the spawn gets too rough, and she dies out there, she can run her own arse back to the healer, I aint risking my life to res her.

    Stupid newb.

    At a store yesterday we saw some flat cardboard boxes that were labeled: Kirin Kappa. Both bf and I pointed at them and went: "oooooh, look". The customers surrounding us regarded us with pity, thinking: "ooooh, nutcases". I guess they didnĀ“t see how amazing Kirin Kappa cardboard boxes are.
