I can't believe that anyone is "liking" these pictures, though. Maybe they're reading the description and that's what puts them over. I give my height and nationality.
That's how I do things when I see somebody with borderline pictures. I read the descriptions and often that puts them over. Like they'll have an interesting job or are non-British. If they're non-British it also often explains why they don't match the Anglo-Saxon idea of beauty.
In other news, I broke down and bought Grand Theft Auto 5. I have a mixed history with Rockstar (the producers of this game).
The first Grand Theft Auto was awesome. I first played it via a demo that I got from a British magazine procured while visiting family in Finland. It was a very obscure title in those days (at least in the US). It was made by a British company, of course. But I managed to track down a lone, beat-up copy at Best Buy. I played it loads.
Then when Grand Theft Auto 2 came out, I also managed to find a copy at Best Buy. I still don't think that the franchise was particularly popular. I played it but didn't like it nearly as much as the first. It's set in a futuristic world and it's okay but I just didn't like it as much as the first.
Then Grand Theft Auto 3 is when it entered the mainstream. This was the first 3-d, third person game in the series. It got great reviews in the console version. So I got the PC version. Holy crap. Unplayable. Crazy lag. The system requirements were outright fabrications. Even on my computer now I don't think that the game would run smoothly. This piece of crap allegedly still had Playstation code on it. Horrendous port.
So I skipped Grand Theft Auto Vice City. For some reason I got Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. I think I legitimately bought it as well but I'm not sure.
At some point during all of this I managed to play Grand Theft Auto London. This was a small game released between the first and second Grand Theft Autos, so the old top-down perspective. I didn't really get into it but it was an old game by then.
Then a few years ago Steam had a Rockstar deal. A bunch of their games for £50 or something. So this package had:
Grand Theft Auto
Grand Theft Auto 2
Grand Theft Auto 3
Grand Theft Auto Vice City
Grand Theft Auto San Andreas
Max Payne 2
Midnight Club 2
Wild Metal Country
I think that's it. But a lot of games for £50. Maybe it was more expensive than that.
So I was able to play Vice City. I played it for a bit. I mostly played San Andreas, though.
The only other game from that list that I played was Bully. Again, horrible port and laggy as shit. They tell you to press the triangle button and whatnot. I'm playing on a keyboard here. They couldn't bother to port the game over properly from consoles.
Then a couple years ago I bought Grand Theft Auto 4 when it was on sale with Grand Theft Auto Episodes from Liberty City. I didn't like either of these games at all. Really annoying anti-piracy measures as well. You have to log into Windows Live which I think is a dead system now so I found it impossible to even play the game the last time I tried (a few days ago).
But everybody is raving about Grand Theft Auto 5 so like an idiot I bought it. Haven't played yet. It's been downloading this 60gb file for the past 16 hours. And £40 for this. Way too expensive. I was going to pirate it because I have no intention of playing online and I've been burned too many times by Rockstar but the torrents were crazy slow.
So anyway, that's that. I also removed a long ingrown hair that's been bothering me for about a week. It was right in the middle under my chin so really hard to see and I couldn't figure out if this even was an ingrown hair. I'd dig at it but couldn't see anything. But it was there for so long I realised that it had to be so today I went in there determined and expecting a long, bloody struggle but it came out quite easily. About twice the length of a normal hair so nothing too exciting but I'm happy that I got it out.
