Bad News/Good News Thread

I've seen threads like this in other forums, so I figure we could have one as well.

However! To prevent this from turning into an angstfest, there will be a crucial difference. When you have something bad to share, also list a good thing, and vice versa.

Bad News: My laptop had broken down to the point where Windows had to be reinstalled.

Good News: None of my files were lost, my CD drive works now, and I haven't had to start over again in my FE4 ROM. I no longer have to use my old desktop with busted speakers. Very Happy

Good news everyone! I got a working NES! Very Happy

Bad news everyone! If I'm caught up after 1 am I lose all my electronic fun! (Computer, NES, GCN, WII, Tv!) Sad

Good news: I got an English copy of Yu-Gi-Oh! volume 1!( Yes, I do like the yu-gi-oh manga. Live with it.)

Bad news:Viz and maybe 4kids Censored it. Mad
Skybait J

I thought the Yugioh dub DVDs were uncut =/

Good News: I'm on vacation in the wonderful state of Montana!

Bad News: LOTS and LOTS of forest fires ;-;
Captain Gamer

Good News: I've inherited Czar's old-model Playstation 2. I've played Final Fantasy VII on it. It's a worn-down PS2, so I have to restart it several times before it takes.

Bad News: I just learned that it can't load battles in Final Fantasy VII that take place on beaches. It goes off the map, then stays black and doesn't load the battle and keeps making the error noise occasionally. I'll still play it.

Good news:There's a sequel o NiGHTS into Dreams coming out in December(Yes!)

Bad news: Global warming is killing the planet.

Oh, and Skybait, Yes, there are, but I was refering to the manga. always better than the anime with Yu-Gi-Oh, I've found.

Good News: I'm going to a baseball game tonight!!

Bad News: I'm gonna be dead tired tomorrow.

Good News: My birthday is next Sunday.

Bad News: This week is going to go by SOOOOO slowly.

Good News: No. No it's not. Political hogwash. Maybe even hogslop.

Bad News: The truth about the Hockystick hoax is still being covered up by political hogslop so that the goverment gets more money.

Bad news: Skybait J has been brainwashed by the man, the one who wants us to think that everything is okay when we're about to be killed by an environmental disaster of our own making. But it's okay. Believe the truth you want to believe, y'know?

Good luck with your dog CN.

A nice enough way to end that little sub-discussion, unless it's to be taken to Private Messaging.

Chocolate Ninja

Good News: I got my dog to eat a bit, though not as much as I would like, by putting some tomato sauce on top of her food.

Bad News: It is thundering badly enough that I can feel my house shake.


Bad News: It seemed like no matter what I tried, the dog wouldn't eat. I was worried that we'd have to see the vet.

Good News: ...that is, except peanut butter, turkey, and mozzarella. Stupid crafty dog!

Good news: My sister may leave the house to watch High School Musical 2!

Bad news:I won't be able to eat her pizza.

Chocolate Ninja

Bad News: I have a dentist appointment tomorrow, and another one scheduled next Wednesday. D:

Good News: At least my dentist isn't like THIS.

Good news everyone! If anyone ever said flea markets are stupid I beg to differ. Just went there and there was a guy selling NES games! Bought myself Ninja Gaiden and Blaster Master.

Bad news everyone! I didn't have enought money to buy Double Dragon as well. Guess I'll have to wait until next sunday and hope the guys there again.
Chocolate Ninja

Good News: I didn't need a root canal!

Bad News: My sister is wasting valuable HD space with a stupid game she installed.

Good News: I'm driving Koji insane by not telling him how I got here.

Bad news:
- The really awesome item I was buying on eBay... wasn't what I thought it was.
- I still haven't managed to write any of this new short story...

Good news:
- I learned the lesson, and will know to scan item descriptions more attentively (and less blindly optimistically) in future! Everything is a learning experience!
- ...but I am making headway on the plotline planning!
Skybait J

Good News: We finally, FINALLY got a halfway decent game shop within biking distance (five miles is biking distance!)
Bad News: smells funny in there...and the guys working there won't stop oogling at me! XO

Awesome News: Okami. I friggin love this game! ;O;
Bad News?: For some strange reason I forgot to walk the dog, do the dishes, switch the lanrdy, and eat lunch. I think it may have something to do with Okami...but you can never be too sure about these things, can you? =/
Chocolate Ninja

That's right! Buying a new video game and forgetting the essentials of life are unfortunate coincidences, no matter what anyone says. <_<

I'm not exactly sure how big or small of a deal this is.

*whistles nonchalantly*...

Good news! I found a new webcomic, and it rules!

Bad news! I still haven't properly designed most of my characters, so stories are on hold...
Chocolate Ninja

Webcomic, eh? Linklink?

Good News: It's good to be back.

Bad News: Lots of class reading = a real drag. Also, minerology seems to be an incredibly subjective field where the right answer is based on what my textbook says.

Good news: I have CN's link! The webcomic's called "Ozy and Millie", you might have heard of it, you might not.

Bad news: I can't think of any bad news! Oh no!

Good News: The webcomic topic on this very forum had that very webcomic along with a whole slew of others!
Bad News: Time is more finite than the number of webcomics around!
Skybait J

Good News: I had to drop an unimportant class, which means more study time and less stress, yay!

Bad News: I still got my nose to the grindstone, however...
Chocolate Ninja

Good News: Got in some DDR and M:TG over the weekend, not to mention finally watched the last Matrix movie in its entirety (not as bad as I'd expected). I am now the proud owner of a Darth Vader poster for my dorm room's door, which is Room 404, which is awesome.

Bad News: I have signed up for too many clubs, and I have much less anticipated time on my hands than last semester. My Geology course seems to assume that Geology is the only class I will have, and adjusts the workload accordingly. Razz

Questionable News: Decisive action impending that may or may not be regretted. More at 11.

Good News: Labor Day! No school!

Bad News: School tomorrow. Crying or Very sad

Bad News: NOOBZ! GRAAAAAAAAAAAH! They ask me, "whats the anime in my avvie, lol" "Um, it's Bleach" "Oh, lol, whats this?" "This game sucks..." "You're only saying that cause you dont know, I win!"

Good News: Another 3-day weekend! W00T!!!

Bad News: From all that rain, the mosquitos are out in force. Like, clouds.
Chocolate Ninja

Good News: One of my friends is now the father of a healthy baby girl!

Bad News: Tired. Will be very glad when this week ends. Razz
Skybait J

Bad News: Five Gamecube controllers. One PS2 controller. One Wii controller. This is a track record of all the controllers my brother have lost and broken. And they WONDER why I don't let them touch my stuff! I'm friggin crying over here....dead serious.

Good News: AP Calculus study groups are pretty fun, though we're not getting much done in these review chapters.
Naryu Elda

Bad news: I'm stuck carting around a giant textbook for the CIS 103 course at my college.

Good news: I have a Computer Graphics course two of my four days I have classes, and another I have Drawing 1 all day. Also, my brother just came home with Metroid Prime 3. :3

Good News: The person I like and wrote a letter saying as much to isn't avoiding me.

Bad News: Besides that, I have no idea where the hell I stand with them. <_<
Chocolate Ninja

Sorry for the bump.


Good News: The most awesome Magic: The Gathering game this weekend. It went on for two hours. In the beginning it was a 2v2v2, but it quickly turned into a 4v2 against my team, and at one point so many other people were absent that it was one guy playing four decks vs. the two of us. We lost, but it was still epic win.
Skybait J

Bad News: My house is turning into the fall of Rome. A whole bunch of bad stuff is happening and the leaders are just covering it up with increased entertainment to keep the people happy. Except me, apparently. We get TiVo, but we dont have internet? I don't even watch TV that much ;-; And my computer's still comunicationaly dead.

Good News: A revival project put into action. I won't spoil the details cause its a suprise, especially since my computer be communicationly dead means DELAYS! But its good news, I sware it is! XO
Chocolate Ninja

Bad News: Aw snap. This is the first time I've slept through classes. One of them I had a bit of homework due for. Not a paper or anything, just a small assignment. My participation grade and paper should be able to fix that. I'll just have to never miss one of those classes again.

Good News: At least one of those classes wasn't Geology. I didn't have anything due in French that day. I feel much better rested, and I was sick anyways.

Good news: They've got a new seasons of Legion and the Batman on Kids WB, (Home of every TV show I watch, save Doctor Who.)

Bad news: NiGHTS JoD won't be out 'til december! Waah! Mad
Skybait J

Good News!: I have been selected for the honor of hearing Dr Jane Goodall speak. Yes, THE Dr Jane Goodall. Y'know....the famous lady who studies chimps and whatnot. I wrote an essay and everything! For a small town area place I live in, it's quite an amazing opportunity. She's only a fifteen minute bus ride away, really.

Very, VERY Bad News!: I've already planned for a long time to go on a college visit one the SAME DAY. Why is everything happening in October anyway?! For some reason I am torn with the indecision. Yes, Jane Goodall is a once-in-a-lifetime thing, but really, I'm not going into that sort of career so what I could learn and use is somewhat limited. The college visit is to affirm my previous choices and move forward with my college career before everyone else catches up to me. It's also more like a well-deserved vacation from the vile evil only known as upper level math and advanced placement classes.

Most people I'm talking to tell me "Um, you can take a college visit another time. Cause y'know this is THE Dr Jane Goodall." But for some reason I just canNOT decide between the two. Besides, I seem to be enjoying missed opportunites (Like when Obama was speaking in the area I didn't go see him...I didn't go see random Republican X either =/). The one time I DID take up on opportunity was when a Holocaust survivor was speaking in the area, and guess what? I fell asleep while he was talking. That Guy was NOT a very interesting speaker.
Chocolate Ninja

Hmm. Well, either way you miss something, but I suppose a college visit is a bit essential. Plus, if it's been scheduled in advance it's probably hard to back out by now.

Bad News: A bachelor's life for me. Razz Also, arghwork.
Good News: I have the honor of still having a great friend.

If you can easily back out of the college visit and rescedule it for a close date, then I'd do that. If you can't, then try to decide which would be better for your future. Hearing Dr. Jane Goodall speak is a once in a lifetime thing, and it is probably more fun, but you'll probably get more out of the college visit. Good luck in your decision.

Good News: I get to do a Calvin and Hobbes project for school!!!

Bad News: The British are coming.

Good News: I'm making a movie!

Good news:
The pain means I know I'm doing the exercises right! So I'm getting bigger, and stronger, and all-around tougher! Woo-hoo!
Skybait J

Good News: Omigosh! I got a B on my Calculus test! I though, for real, I was gonna fail. Because seriously, I'm not good at math. But I got a B! Huzzah! Now maybe I'll manage a C in the class entirely....

Bad News: I got a C on my Dual Credit American History that was supposed to be easy. Yeah, cant win em all...
Chocolate Ninja

Bad News: I am having a TERRIBLE day, the likes of which I have not had for many a year. I literally felt about to cry.

Good News: Three more days 'til break.

Good News: Koji, you can hear all you want about my project.

Bad News: It's made with iMovie, so unless I put it on the internet, you'll never be able to see it.

(For the rest of you: I made an iMovie project for my computer class, and it's entitled Calvin and Hobbes Remembered. Doing it brought tears to my eyes.)
Skybait J

Good News: ITSA MAH 18TH BIRFDAY! Now I can porn! And vote! And buy AO rated games! Wait...that was 18, wasnt it?

Bad News: Two college courses that I'm taking decided that they'd test on the same one high school course...which I know I bombed. How am I supposed to remember all the fiddly parts of bones and still know everyone who write a piddly book on American Imperialism?! This must be what college finals week is like....@.@
Chocolate Ninja

Good News: Holy crap, I managed to get an A- in each of my Geology courses, the same grade I got in both my intro courses. I don't know how I managed that.

Bad News: I might have screwed up on my final paper for another class, and I probably did pretty badly on the final test for French. But if I didn't screw up too badly on the former, I think I'll have done pretty well.

Captain Gamer

Bad news: I've got three days to research for and compile a digital movie, including a bibliography, proposal, and reflection of the entire process. I've been through worse.

Good news: My entire week's schedule is clear as crystal. Since I usually get the job done in about half a day's worth of work, I have a buffer. It's my gift and my curse.

Very, very good news: I am typing this post from a BRAND NEW COMPUTER. Goodbye 128 MB RAM, hello 3 GB RAM!!

Bad news edit: Hrm... OpenOffice uses fine lines for callout dialogue bubbles. For OOC strips, that will not do. I'll need to grab off MS Office and get Word back if I'm to do any more OOC. In addition, I have no clue how I'll get FrontPage, the web design program. >.>

Bad News: I've been in the hospital for a while with a collapsed lung.
Good News: I'm back to 100%, Whoo!

Moar Good News: I just played HALO for the first time ever today.

Moar Bad News: Due to the fact that the only FPS I've played in basically forever is Red Steel, I found it simply impossible to master using two control sticks to turns and move. I didn't get a single kill, and I'm unlikely to get more practice any time soon. Razz

Dude! Collapsed lung?!? Details!

good news: I don't have to take the WASL this week, and so don't have to go to school until like 10 A.M.
Bad news: My computer apparently hates me, and keeps having to be wiped...
good news: I found a new FPS! YAY! (combat arms)
Bad news: I SUCK at it... like in the worst possible way...
good news: Somebody actually commented besides me! yay!
bad news: scratch that...

Details as requested: Yeah, well, I was at my friend's house for a party, we were watching scary movies (or what passed for scary movies, none of them were scary at all) and my chest starts hurting. But I don't say anything, 'cause I'm having fun. So then we go out for pizza and come back and the group of us start watching Cloverfield, and by this point I can't lay down without it feeling like my organs are trying to burst from my chest. So then, after the party ends, I go home. That night, I lie awake the for like six freakin' hours in the most uncomfortable night of my life. The next day, I feel better. The day after that, I'm having so much trouble breathing that I can't walk from one end of the room to the other without wheezing, so my mom takes me to the hospital to get some antibiotics, snce she thinks I have pneumonia or something. Instead, I find out I have a collapsed lung. They put a tube in my chest. Days later, I get surgery to close the hole. Days later, I go home. I just finally finished catching up on my schoolwork though. Mostly.
