    NOSTALGIA

    So, who wants to send a mass email to everyone who was ever a member so we can bring the old gang back together?

    Laughing at all of the old threads and missing the good old days now. I want to know what everyone's been up to!!

    Well, married life is more expensive than I imagined, especially since my wife is not allowed to work (yet) due to my immigration restrictions. We both love to travel and eat, so we do both of those a lot, and as you can imagine, it can get very costly. It is very fulfilling though.

    I'd gotten to a point where I had lost the desire to do anything and practically drifted from day to day, but meeting her rekindled my traveler's spirit. While I never really lost my love for food, I stopped cooking because it felt meaningless to do it for myself. But now that someone gets to eat and tell me her impressions about what I make, I cook every single day. It's just that fulfilling.

    We also cosplay together. In fact, we're flying to Anime Expo this July. I'm planning to go as Kiryu Kazuma from Yakuza and she's gonna do Unicorn from Azur Lane.

    As for how we got together, the short version (100% true story):
    I met her through her mother, who was my subordinate at work. She had an abusive boyfriend back then, so I helped her break up with him. We fell in love, but she was in a cult that did not allow getting into relationships with those outside of it. I even did a dogeza in front of her parents, saying I'd go into the cult if that's what it took, but was promptly rejected. We got separated by her parents and lived in different states for a while, but she ran away from them and the cult and began living with me. We got married soon after. Now we sorta made up with her family (most of them anyway), but they can't openly talk to her because the cult does not allow contact with anyone who broke away from them.

    Spunky.

    Interesting.

    I'm at a stage while I'm just kinda working day in, day out, self indulging in games/anime/watches and other materials/consumables during my time off. It's a catch 22 between saying "I'll do something else (less selfish) when I meet someone I love enough." and "You won't meet someone like that without trying".

    Do I feel like I need another person in my life? Not really, not now. Maybe that'll change one day.

    I think now you get why I don't cook.

    Your story is quite incredible.

    Cooking for yourself is no big deal. It's called leftovers.

    Make something that feeds four, eat it for two days.
    Make something that feeds eight, bring some into work and share.

    When Shinta says cooking, we're talking fancy shit.

    I cook to make food not-raw, warm and taste ok. I don't eat take-out every day. That's expensive. What I do is turn ingredients into food, but that's not cooking while we're having a conversation with Shinta.

    Hey guys, I've finally been able to log back in after forever. Someone should tell the mods to fix the lost username recaptcha. I wasn't able to log in and it felt terrible not being able to write anything!

    Nobody but Complich can fix things, and he hasn't got much time to fix them. In fact it's been ages since I last time saw any trace of him. Maybe it was around the time when he moved the forums away from Wilik's uncle's server (or whatever it was), onto his own, so that we could still keep the forum running, more or less. And that was a good long while ago. The irc server self-destroyed as well, so the channel is on rizon now, yet, to follow the trend, the rizon channel founder, Archangel, disappeared some time ago. That's how it goes.

    You were lucky you could visit before the end, lilphatboi88!

    Thanks guys. I really do feel the nostalgia. So much has changed in the tech world / anime world. I remember feeling like the nerd who liked anime and now it's cool.

    Dude, haven't seen you around for a while. Looks like Sapphi did an interesting thing by creating this thread.

    Haha nice one.
    I kinda questioned myself who these "Guests" are, viewing all the old threads. Assumed Bots, was probably wrong.

    Even if people don't post anymore. Kinda cool they stick around once in a while.
