Oh Parents, Part XI - Smartphone Adventures!

So my last entry was over a year ago, with life taking a dramatic turn, leading me to work in the gaming industry. It has been a year full of blessings, and I have met so many awesome people along the way.

Of course, after joining the industry, I was finding myself semi-glued to my phone with e-mails and general social media catch up, not to mention news....

It's been ages since I've shared with you the silliness my parents seem to throw at me.

So Dad and I were talking about work (I start a new job fairly soon) while fixing the stove (one of the dials for the burner was broken), and the subject of phones came up. Now, sad to say my dad pays my phone bill for me because we're under a family plan,...


Legacy of Blood - WARNING: CONTAINS SOME SPOILERS

T. S. Church, Return to Canifis and 5 more...
So I spent the last 48 hours or so reading Legacy of Blood and am overall impressed. Admittedly I feel like there were some portions of the story that felt rushed and that Gar'rth's story seems thrown a tad messily together even though the title implied that this particular book would look into his history more. Still, T. S. Church did a...


The Combat Beta Isn't the Only Thing Coming on June 26th! (for me anyway)

Legacy of Blood and 6 more...
With all the excitement over the Combat Beta coming next week, it seems a little something that was highly promoted before got put back in the shadows. At least, from what I can tell so far.

Some of you already know that I've actually gone and purchased the first and second RuneScape novels by T.S. Church, more out of curiosity than interest. And if...

Wow! #9 already! :o

Dad: So you're washing dishes right? <Everyone else is leaving to go out somewhere while I stay home>
Me: . . . No one else is gonna be home to do it, so who else will?
Dad: Don't give me that attitude!
Me: Stop asking stupid questions then. :(
Mom: Yea! Stop asking dumb...

It's been a crazy two months ish, and of course there were many derps along the way. Unfortunately it was hard to remember them all. :P Doesn't mean I don't have anything to share though!

So I was taking a shower when I heard my dad calling for me outside at the door. I turned off the water, asking him what's up...

Dad: Hey,...

Phone call from my mother on my mobile...

Mom: Hey your brother is home right?
Me: Yea... he just got home.
Mom: Okay, good. *Hangs up*

A few minutes later, my mobile rings again.

Mom: Hey, you said your brother is home right? I need to talk to him, give him the phone.
Me: Er... why didn't you just call his...

Let's give a hand to parents and the challenges they face raising us, with derps along the way.

A few nights ago, I was watching "Person of Interest" with my dad and one of the characters talked about burying an empty coffin... Again, the conversation is in Chinese, and my parents' English is rather limited.

Dad: So does...

;) What? You think my parents can go through a week without this?

Dad: So how long is your training again?
Me: Two weeks on site, one week in field.
Dad: Okay.

Not even five minutes later...

Dad: So your training is two weeks long?
Me: No, three weeks total, one being in the field.
Dad: Okay.

A few minutes...

:wall: I've had my schedule posted on the refrigerator door for some four months now, including the time and location I'll be at while bouncing between work and school, since my parents want to make sure they knew where I was in case something happens.

Except they don't seem to even bother with it.

At 8:00am this morning...

Dad: Why...
