Why is Christmas Eve the day before Christmas and not the evening of Christmas?

It'd be like calling Christmas Morn the day after Christmas.

In uffish thought
Eve is on the eve of something, or just before it. Halloween is All Hallow's Eve (the v is dropped, which is why it often includes an apostrophe), and All Hallow's Day, or All Saint's Day, is the first of November. It appears to have the same etymology as evening, though.

Dumb language...semantics and irony are my two least favorite things that I always seem to talk about.

Also especially, the semantics of irony. ;/

Well, also randomly! I wish I got a Wii Action Replay for Christmas. Though I only learned tonight that it came out this year.

Oh well, how much would more time would I miss for a re-completed game library if I just bought it online?

Yeah, there should be a language that, the more nonsensical the words are, the more people would be able to understand.

Oou? :p

Anyway, that just seems to be a side-effect of communication. :p As awesome as it is, language can be a bit limiting at times. Plus it changes and people have their own ideas for what a word can mean. Main thing we shouldn't do I suppose is nitpick about it. :p

Blue Screens of death. SO annoying. I guess I'll get one on 1 January again sad

Worst of all, this means that I can no longer play Dragon Age: Origins >:(
So now I've got thousands (well, probably only twenty) useless games on my computer. :(

So I searched TV Tropes on Tumblr out of idle curiosity, and a significant portion of the results are rather vitriolic and all-encompassing criticisms of the site. While spending any amount of one's time making logically fallacious arguments against a free, entertaining website would seem to be rather pointless, it is interesting to see how TV Tropes is generally perceived.

It's a strange and wonderful how old memories may be dredged up by returning to something old. In my case, they come from a re-playing of the old game CyClones (which I haven't played in many years indeed, I believe): miscellaneous memories (levels, half-watching ReBoot, waving my character's gun to the music, perhaps more yet); vivid, sweet and immaterial, like banks of inwardly-glowing clouds through which I pass as I run through the levels...

I spoil everything. I make Walking Spoiler take a new meaning, I guess.

I just spoil everything, although here I don't because I'm afraid I'll get in trouble. Better safe than sorry, after all.

I think I use that phrase too much surprised

People telling me that everything is an illusion really managed to get me so depressed right now -_-

It gives me nightmares...

[up][up] Happens to me too. Most of the time I just acknowledge the fact that there is a good chance that I'm just a character in a fictional work. Never thought of myself as the main character. I don't know why.

And I constantly try to break the fourth wall, you know, just in case. (wink, wink)

[up] Aww, cheer up. It really wouldn't change anything, if it was true. Humanity(or what we think is humanity) will keep on moving as it did, does, and will do.

I realize that I'm probably making it worse. I'm sorry if I am. And not if I'm not, but you already know that, duh.
To the waking world I say,"Aha!"

If my life is a television programme, it would have been axed by the network by now. I think the "teenage boy growing up, finding love, hating family, dicking with friends" storyline is a bit old.tongue

curse-word you!

However, there is always the wide range of other characters that can get their own spin off. Like me, for instance.

You and I would make good characters in a film. I'm sure our adventures together would be much fun.

curse-word you!

And my depression would be taken to extreme levels.

The network once promised that my life would be back after a word from their sponsors. Then they pulled it off the air and started playing reruns.
