      1. @noirbatch Fluttershy it just a little too playful sometimes.

        Monday, 21-May-12 09:04:53 UTC from web
        1. @pony I can tell XD What are you doing?

          Monday, 21-May-12 09:05:35 UTC from web
          1. @noirbatch I'm done looking at tumblr ponies.. now I'm not sure what I'll do. This is why I need a personal assistant.. to keep my recreation organized.

            Monday, 21-May-12 09:07:20 UTC from web
            1. @pony Whenever you are unsure of what to do, play Spacechem.

              Monday, 21-May-12 09:08:06 UTC from web
              1. @toksyuryel play.. games.. that's it. I'll play a game!

                Monday, 21-May-12 09:11:18 UTC from web
                1. @pony Specifically Spacechem. Because it is the best puzzle game ever.

                  1. @toksyuryel @pony do not trust the red pony. It is malfunctioning

                    1. @ceruleanspark No really it is. Better than Portal.

                      1. @toksyuryel *pushes you down the stairs for not getting the Terrible Secret of Space reference."

                        Monday, 21-May-12 09:16:01 UTC from StatusNet Desktop
                        1. @ceruleanspark ah! a reference. of course. :)

                          Monday, 21-May-12 09:16:40 UTC from web
                        2. @ceruleanspark Never heard of it

                          Monday, 21-May-12 09:16:47 UTC from web
                          1. @toksyuryel Of all the people likely to get badly aged, obscure, e-culture references, I'd have had you down as one of the more likely candidates!

                            Monday, 21-May-12 09:18:15 UTC from StatusNet Desktop
                            1. @ceruleanspark Is it related to the Terrible Secret of Animal Crossing?

                              Monday, 21-May-12 09:19:30 UTC from web
                              1. @toksyuryel Given that they have the same origin, the titles are probably referential, but the content is not. and the song: It goes without saying that Something Awful is #

                    2. @ceruleanspark @toksyuryel haha* so I guess Spacechem has mixed reviews, or there are better games out there at least. I was thinking of trying out another game that my niece plays

                      Monday, 21-May-12 09:16:17 UTC from web
                      1. @pony I wasn't aware of Spacechem having mixed reviews. I've always seen and heard it to have very good reviews.

                        Monday, 21-May-12 09:17:31 UTC from web
                        1. @toksyuryel I just said that in response to cerulean's comment. I haven't read any reviews. So why is it such a good game?

                          Monday, 21-May-12 09:20:35 UTC from web
                          1. @pony It's difficult to put into words; thankfully, there's a free demo that lets you play through the first three worlds so I don't have to put it into words.

                            Monday, 21-May-12 09:21:44 UTC from web
            2. @pony Lol this is true, I wish I had an assistant lol

              Monday, 21-May-12 09:08:38 UTC from web
              1. @noirbatch lucky Twilight.. having a baby dragon assistant. I'm jealous

                Monday, 21-May-12 09:12:26 UTC from web
                1. @pony Yes So jelly. Man I am tired

                  Monday, 21-May-12 09:12:53 UTC from web
            3. @pony Some kind of assistant tulpa to tell you what to do?

              Monday, 21-May-12 09:11:52 UTC from StatusNet Desktop
              1. @ceruleanspark o.o ! Why didn't I think of that? but then.. as a part of myself, wouldn't it only be as good at organizing my time as I myself am?.. maybe my current tulpa has some suggestions at least.

                Monday, 21-May-12 09:14:16 UTC from web
                1. @pony In my...experience... they're more...honest, about how you should be spending your time than you are.

                  Monday, 21-May-12 09:15:23 UTC from StatusNet Desktop
                  1. @ceruleanspark well there's a thought.. She's not sure right now because I can't identify anything productive to be doing..

                    Monday, 21-May-12 09:19:28 UTC from web
                    1. @pony Spacechem is the most productive unproductive thing you could be doing. It'll really work your brain and make you smarter.

                      Monday, 21-May-12 09:20:25 UTC from web
                      1. @toksyuryel oh I see! that reminds me of a game that uses contributions from online players to find a cure for aids

                        Monday, 21-May-12 09:21:13 UTC from web
                    2. @pony As she is essentially an independent filter overlaid on the same set of data, perhaps there reallly is nothing constructive for you to be doing.

                      Monday, 21-May-12 09:25:16 UTC from StatusNet Desktop
                      1. @ceruleanspark that seems to be the case I think. Today and yesterday have been the first days I've really tried to read more from her than just words of comfort. Her strength so far lies in taking care of me emotionally. Sometimes I've consulted with her on how to live healthier and she's given me a few suggestions. Other than that I'm still working on building her sentience, so, despite my eagerness, I think that may be why I haven't gotten much of a response from her. I feel like I may be expecting too much at this point. It just seems to be taking a long time. I'd like to find better resources than the ones listed here: Do you know any?

                        Monday, 21-May-12 09:41:26 UTC from web
                        1. @pony When I originally learned of this concept it was called something else, and I mostly felt my way through it. I know that if I had read that stuff you just linked me to, I sure as hell never would have bothered. Just talk to her. Don't just treat her as a respository for your questions and...debug controls for your higher brain functions. Talk to her as a friend. Ask her about stuff any old stuff. Seek her input frequently.

                          Monday, 21-May-12 09:52:41 UTC from StatusNet Desktop
                          1. @ceruleanspark yeah. I found the stuff in that link only marginally useful, and mostly not great advice. I just read it yesterday, and before that I was going off of what I know from meditation, psychology, and spirituality in general. Thanks for the advice! So how did you come upon the concept in the first place?

                            Monday, 21-May-12 10:03:15 UTC from web
                            1. @pony A weird pseudo-cult I ran across years ago were crafting Tulpae in the form of "dæmons" from Phillip Pullmans "His Dark Materials" series. (think Socrates, not satan). Being young, impressionable and way into that, I made one of my own then.

                              Monday, 21-May-12 10:05:26 UTC from StatusNet Desktop
                              1. @ceruleanspark oh that's interesting! So has yours been around since then?

                                Monday, 21-May-12 10:08:20 UTC from web
                                1. @pony Yes. The nature of the dæmon construct means that whilst we might go for prolonged periods of time without communicating directly, she's always there when I'm ready.

                                  Monday, 21-May-12 10:12:11 UTC from StatusNet Desktop
                                  1. @ceruleanspark Did your group refer to any books or anything beside Pullman's "His Dark Materials" to help create your dæmons?

                                    Monday, 21-May-12 10:14:25 UTC from web
                                    1. @pony Well, I remember the author did some research into the origin of the concept itself, and we ran across various forms of totems, and socrates' daimon and the like.

                                      Monday, 21-May-12 10:17:55 UTC from web
                                      1. @ceruleanspark I think I'll look into that tonight then.

                                        Monday, 21-May-12 10:19:07 UTC from web
                                        1. @pony I have no idea if they're still around. It was all hosted on a freewebs type deal a good decade ago.

                                          Monday, 21-May-12 10:19:48 UTC from web
                                          1. @ceruleanspark ah hmm.. well if i find anything I'll let you know.. I also have been meaning to ask my father. He knows about all sorts of cultish stuff.

                                            Monday, 21-May-12 10:21:00 UTC from web
                                        2. @pony I can't recommend it.

                                          Monday, 21-May-12 10:19:54 UTC from web
                                          1. @toksyuryel no? Do you know much about tulpas?

                                            Monday, 21-May-12 10:23:19 UTC from web
                                            1. @pony I was referring to the "cult" and "dæmon" stuff. You don't want to get involved in that sort of thing.

                                              Monday, 21-May-12 10:24:14 UTC from web
                                              1. @toksyuryel oh I gotcha. My pop has warned me against it as well. I fear no truth or lie as long as I'm anchored to my faith. Of course I won't dare to take what i learn lightly depending on the nature of it.

                                                Monday, 21-May-12 10:27:15 UTC from web
                                                1. @pony Please disregard what I have said about this topic, I was mistaken as to what was being discussed and considered.

                                                  Monday, 21-May-12 10:59:44 UTC from web
                                                  1. @toksyuryel okidokiloki. I have no qualms with other ponies being into that sort of thing (we are talking about clop right?)

                                                    Monday, 21-May-12 11:02:31 UTC from web
                                                    1. @pony No, this was a reply to the other thread.

                                                      Monday, 21-May-12 11:03:34 UTC from web
                                                      1. @toksyuryel oh ok I get it.. forgot to check the context there.

                                                        Monday, 21-May-12 11:05:26 UTC from web
                                              2. @toksyuryel Now, I'm interested :D

                                                Monday, 21-May-12 10:28:19 UTC from web
                                                1. @hakupony It's just not a healthy road to travel, no matter how strong you think you are it always leaves you scarred in some way.

                                                  Monday, 21-May-12 10:30:06 UTC from web
                                                  1. @toksyuryel There are so many things people think that are "too dark roads to take". Most often, it was all smoke without much fire.

                                                    Monday, 21-May-12 10:36:59 UTC from web
                                                    1. @hakupony I have personal experience with this particular road.

                                                      Monday, 21-May-12 10:37:51 UTC from web
                                                      1. @toksyuryel I really don't see what should be so dangerous about that...

                                                        Monday, 21-May-12 10:45:50 UTC from web
                                              3. @toksyuryel Perhaps look up the word dæmon in the context of His Dark Materials before automatically assuming it's something sinister.

                                                Monday, 21-May-12 10:29:07 UTC from StatusNet Desktop
                                                1. @ceruleanspark The word "dark" is right there in the title.

                                                  Monday, 21-May-12 10:30:23 UTC from web
                                                  1. @toksyuryel I really expected better from you. It's an allusion to Paradise Lost.

                                                    Monday, 21-May-12 10:31:59 UTC from StatusNet Desktop
                                                    1. @ceruleanspark Which is another thing I know nothing about :D

                                                      Monday, 21-May-12 10:32:58 UTC from web
                                                      1. @toksyuryel Wikipedia is RIGHT THERE man.

                                                        Monday, 21-May-12 10:34:27 UTC from StatusNet Desktop
                                                        1. @ceruleanspark And if I cared enough maybe I'd look into it, but this is the kind of stuff I try to avoid these days. It's just too depressing to think about, and too sickening to consider.

                                                          Monday, 21-May-12 10:35:56 UTC from web

                                              1. @noirbatch Tulpas are deliberately created thoughtform entities (within one's own mind) that can act as a source of companionship among other things..

                                                1. @pony so my Applehack.. I knew that lol XD thanks for the enlightenment 58 hours off no sleep makes me forgetful

                                                  Monday, 21-May-12 10:32:23 UTC from MuSTArDroid
                                                  1. @noirbatch good gracious! when will you get some sleep??

                                                    Monday, 21-May-12 10:34:14 UTC from web
                                                    1. @pony when my body and mind allows it

                                                      Monday, 21-May-12 10:35:56 UTC from MuSTArDroid
                                                      1. @noirbatch You'll feel much better when you're rested won't you? If I'm really wound up and I need sleep I like to exercise for 30 minutes, take a hot shower and some melatonin and do breathing exercises.

                                                        1. @pony I wake up feeling worse. I have 7 years of sleep to catch up with

                                                          1. @noirbatch worse like groggy? that's odd. maybe you could ask a doctor

                                                            Monday, 21-May-12 10:42:01 UTC from web
                                                            1. @pony actually that is a good idea.. Hmmmn why can't out be Saturday... I could at least sleep some lol

                                                              Monday, 21-May-12 10:43:20 UTC from MuSTArDroid
                                                              1. @noirbatch I find too that when I wake up feeling especially groggy it helps to give my body ample time to get going.

                                                                Monday, 21-May-12 10:45:14 UTC from web

                                                                  Monday, 21-May-12 10:46:22 UTC from StatusNet Desktop

                                                                  Monday, 21-May-12 10:46:51 UTC from MuSTArDroid

                                                                    Monday, 21-May-12 10:53:30 UTC from web
    2. @comradeconventrix My kickboxing warmup is 50, minimum, mixed in 50 situps, crunches and squats, as well as a bunch of crossfit stuff. However, when I started, I could barely manage 10

                  1. @pony I agree but I meant a-dork-able - tvtropes language for dorky adorable. I'm just sayin "yesyesyesyesyesyes!"

                    Monday, 21-May-12 11:07:27 UTC from web
                    1. @hakupony yeah. sorry I couldn't find a suitably adorkable pic for my last dash so I just settled on adorable.

                      1. @pony Don't worry -

                          2. @pony I prefer the animated version

                            Monday, 21-May-12 12:02:27 UTC from web
                            1. @ceruleanspark that sounds 20% cooler than the non- animated one
