I found out that on the new forum, thread OP's have the power to lock threads. As such, I'm getting in on reviving as many of the old megathreads as I can. He who controls the threads, controls the world! Mwahahahahaha.

After 6 and a half years of college and part of a 20-page paper to go until she gets her bachelor degree, my mom FINALLY has a job interview. At the computer skills screening, the guy seemed impressed with her mad skillz, and while the job wouldn't pay spectacularly, it's more than minimum wage and they'll still have my dad's disability to add to her paycheck. I just hope she can get this job...

That's really awful. Do you have migraine medication? Like, the prescription kind?
Title: Re: Anything Good Happen Today?
Post by: Shane for Wax on January 07, 2012, 06:03:37 pm
I was told one of the meds I have is supposed to be for it but honestly it's hit or miss whether it actually works. Probably because it isn't specifically made for it. My mom uses migraine meds.

In short, I don't have anything specifically for migraines. Simply for the usual pain I have related to my spinal disorders and such.

When I get bad headaches, I look for the heaviest book I can find (usually a math or science textbook) and lay it on my forehead. It sounds stupid, but it works for me for some reason.

I have a friend who has gotten migranes so bad that she cut her hair short because even the movement of her hair was hurting her.
Title: Re: Anything Good Happen Today?
Post by: Shane for Wax on January 07, 2012, 06:06:17 pm
I actually have started keeping my hair short because of the fact that the longer my hair the more often I have migraines and headaches. This was before questioning my gender identity.

As for putting pressure on the spot... I have heard that works for some but not all. I usually try to press into the spots but it doesn't really relieve much of anything.

The Walking Dead announced a third season with three additional episodes.

For those keeping track at home: Season 1 was 6 episodes long and spanned 7 hours (episode 1 was a two hour premiere). Current season (2) was given 13 episodes. So far they've aired 7 of them and the split season comes back February 12th with episode 8 (Nebraska). The season just given the green light is supposed to be 16 episodes long.

This maketh me squeal like the fangirl I am.

And now you've made me sad. Have you read the comics? TWD is supposed to be about humanity in the face of adversity. The most dangerous thing in the comics, and in the tv show if they're going to keep going like they have been, are other survivors. Zombies might kill you but your fellow human beings can damage you. This first half was supposed to be about personal growth, inner struggles, and above all Hope. If you want depth of character you watch TWD. No one with a tie to a child could watch the end scene of the mid season finale and not bawl like a baby. and it took Daryl from racist redneck to fan favorite.

If you want mindless zombie kills I hear there's a resident evil marathon on tomorrow on Syfy.

which, in its own way, is a good thing happening today.

*perks up* Ninja zombies? Did I miss something?

And maybe it's just me. My favorite episode of season 1 was "Vatos", because it highlighted how good can shine through in situations like this and it's the lowest rated episode on a lot of polls.

To keep on topic, I'm now having a mini marathon with my director's cut of the first season. That's something good happening today.

And now for the happy. Four (semi) good things have happened in the last 24 hours.

1) A friend from the writing groups turned 32 yesterday. We spent her birthday working on what were supposed to be drabbles (short stories normally not topping 75 words). Because we kept hive-minding it we only got 8 of our 13 prompts done but it was a definite case of quality over quantity. None of them ended up being drabbles. 5 were ficlets (stories under 500 words). The other three topped out at 859, a little over 2,300, and a little over 3,500 respectively. The 3,500 one also started out as being finished at 801, then one of us would notice something and tweak it. Then the other would see the tweaked work and add something. And that kept going on til we got the little monster.

2) Puppy fail. Now, normally puppy fail is a bad to very bad thing. Today it was just cute. Bella tried to chase her tail, seeming to forget that she is a rottweiler and there for has no tail to chase.

3) One of my favorite authors, whose work I envy for the quality of the ideas and because she consistently pushes out 6-15,000 word chapters every few weeks, emailed me. She liked some of my ideas and is using them in an upcoming story. I get giddy when I see an update on one of her works and she thinks my ideas are worth using. That was just a "Wow!" moment for me.

4) My daughter needing no help on her homework. I looked it over, saw nothing wrong with it, and handed it to my mother to see what she thought. My mother didn't even understand some of the problems. That one got amusement points plus mommy pride points.

I wish I could show you what I saw from the air today.

The rice paddies are flooded right now to make them ready for the next crop.  From the ground, they just look a bit like little lakes.  From the air, though...

You've seen fields from the air before?  It's like that.  Only instead of earth or grass, it's water, flat little plains of water marked off in regular shapes, demarcated by man-made barriers of raised dirt.  And they're all different colors.  Muddy browns mixed with blues and greens, in strangely regular shapes.  Some of them are pure blocks of color, while others are striped and mottled, looking almost exactly like old wood planks, the impurities in the water looking like the grain of the wood.

And it reflects.  It's especially striking as we move over the land.  The clouds are reflected into the water.  It looks like nothing so much as a stained glass window in the Earth, with another sky below us.

It's beautiful.  I wish I could have taken a picture.  I wish you could see it.

Went to the pub to celebrate end of exams. Found out they were doing a Burns Night special where if you got a double of Talisker you got a free hip flask. Since a) hip flasks usually go for £15+ and b) Talisker is one of the Classic Malt collection it really was a no brainer. As a result, I a) have new favourite whisky and b) am canny pissed and therefore merry.

MY CRAZY NEXT DOOR OLD NEIGHBOR LADY IS GETTING EVICTED!

Backstory children.  We've got this crazy drunk old lady as a neighbor down here.  And when I say crazy drunk I really mean that.  Life has not been kind to this lady.  And lately, she's been getting even worse.  I'm talking taking 5 hour baths while I'm trying to clean the dishes, screaming at us to keep it down if we're talking above a whisper and generally being a nuisance.  Well today the final straw came down.  I got back from another failed attempt at getting my breaks fixed and had just gotten into some really good sleep when there's a knock on the door.  It's animal control.  They've been called out due to a report about how we keep our animals caged all day long, how we only take them out twice a day and other shit.  The lady takes one look at my Kowalski and Ianto, and if you've seen them you can know how handsome/cute they are, and says that this report is bogus.  They're healthy, well fed, and well watered.  So the fiancé calls up the land lady.  Tells her about the animal control thing.  Nothing she can do about that.  Then we tell her about yesterday and the 5 hour long bath she took, basically tyeing up all the hot water.  And OUT SHE FUCKING GOES!  Eviction letter comes tomorrow and everything.  Last straw has been given and hopefully within 30 days, she'll be out.  She'll probably fight this but the fact is, we've tried to be nice.  We've tried to accommodate her needs.  But now...it's done.

Ironbite-and I couldn't be happier.

The parents were a Fairy Lunaris and a Sundae Lunaris and she will haunt your nightmares. Or offer you icecream. I haven't decided which yet.

I'm also thinking of entering the Reve in the drinking game if I have enough alcohol. We'll see what I've got the 31st in comparison to the high score board. As long as one of the other winners is a melo(griffin), soli(paleo), oakl(ippo), lacer(lysk), gael(sway), insi(campe), oske(shu), or maki(nikko) I have a good chance of getting a hybrid out of the breeding since Frey pairs up drinkers by whatever makes a hybrid>won't make a new hybrid but is rare/uncommon/hybrid>whatever's left.

What coin are you using, anyway? Metal or lesser breeding? Do you know which finxes you're going to use? Of the ones you own I'm partial to the wings on the Goldrings and the overall coloration of the Holiday Rose. Did you try advertising on the breeding board yet? Some people will let you use their custom for free, or at a very low fee.

2. The only kitties I have with the same lineart and opposite genders are Stellar Tiger and Holiday Rose.  I would go for that Goldrings in a heartbeat if I'd had LBC instead of MBC.
3. No, I haven't.  By the time i thought of asking around, I'd already made one of the predicts.

2. But Aywas breeding is magic. A lot of my babies have two mommies or two daddies. Or their parents are gender neutral, hermaphrodite, etc. These are the parents of my new Reve. Notice they are both female.

So, one of my aunts has an odd tendency of rooting through her basement, and then driving over and leaving some junk on our porch. Doesn't ring the bell or anything, no visits. Just drop off some random objects from years gone by. Usually this stuff is laughable at best.

Today, though, among the objects were these: the Dungeons & Dragons Player's Handbook for both 3.0 and 3.5 edition. I gotta say, that's pretty awesome. It's at least 20% cooler than anything else she's ever left. (Comparatively, she also left a cat calender from 2005, some unremarkable novels, and a generic doll. My sister is 21, and has a 2-years-old son. Who is this doll even for??)

Half of the things wrong with me aren't even able to be checklisted on my chart so I got to sit down and explain some things to a medical professional. At the end of it she said that though my body was weak, my mind was not and said I was very intelligent. Then she gave me a hug before I left to get my meds filled. :)

About a year and a half ago I moved. I tossed a lot of old computer stuff, including a bunch of small hard drives. When I got into the new apartment, I couldn't find my 1 tb drive. I figured I tossed it out by accident. Fast forward to this morning... I set up my computer in my new apartment (moving in as we speak), and one of my drives wasn't visible. Popped open the case on the machine, reset the power wire on the drive that wasn't showing up and.... Noticed that there was a hard drive in the machine that wasn't connected. It was the 1 tb drive; i guess I installed it in a drunken stupor, and seeing as there weren't enough power connectors for the drive, I never actually connected it.

That's the one. Brilliant game and one of the most complex turn-based strategies I've ever played. As for your question, I've no idea. I only just managed to not get my ass handed to me in the first scenario of the Keeper's campaign.

That said, I will say that ballistae are most definitely overpowered. Four of the buggers in a line and it seems the enemy no longer want to kill me on account of all the free javelins I'm sending their way.

Spent the afternoon as an extra in a friend's music video. I was first part of an audience that was eaten by zombies, and then a zombie running up and down a few alleys. When I returned to my apartment complex, the manager and a few tenants thought I'd been assaulted, because I still had the makeup on. It was hilarious.

I can provide pics & the video itself once they are available to me, if anyone would like to see them.

This happened last week and I get a TON of flak for saying this about myself but I feel proud enough of this happening to weather the snarkiness and share it with the class.

I am officially no longer allowed to think of myself as 'fat' no matter what I think about myself because as of last week, I fit into a little girl's XL skirt. This actually makes me feel really awesome about myself
Title: Re: Anything Good Happen Today?

Ironbite-Con...grats?
Title: Re: Anything Good Happen Today?
Post by: Caitshidhe on February 21, 2012, 10:39:02 pm
Naw, I have no idea what I weigh. But provided the skirt is an elastic waist and has no constrained hip (like a tutu circle skirt or something), then yes, I fit into most. I think it's equivalent of about a size four in women's jeans, so it's not like I've gone anorexic. Once I can find my camera I'll put up a picture cos I'm rockin' the tutu look right now.

Okay, I just checked, at Old Navy (where most of my shit comes from now since I get it cheap), the girl's XL waist is 26", and my waist at the moment is, I think, 25 or 26. And I still wear a size six. So I'm not emaciated, I swear!

Post by: Cerim Treascair on February 21, 2012, 11:11:32 pm
Marilyn Monroe wore a size six, as memory serves.

Also, to keep from de-railing:  I'm just shy of 108 miles walked in 52 days (since the start of the new year), and I have roughly 117 miles to go to make my 225 goal by the end of March.  I'm shooting to walk at least 1,000 miles this year, if not 1,500 (though I'll have to push for that, I'd need to average about 4 and a half miles a day).

(Rat sighs as he steps over to Cait, grasps her shoulders, and looks directly into her oh-so-pretty eyes.)

Cait, listen to me very carefully.  It doesn't matter what your weight is.  You were gorgeous when you were heavier, and you remain gorgeous now.  Here, allow me to demonstrate what I mean.

(Rat leans in and kisses Cait passionately, a real toe-curling, tonsil-tickling, breath-stealer of a kiss, still holding onto her in case her knees buckle or something like that.  After 30 seconds or so, he takes a breather and smiles warmly to Cait.)

Now, have I successfully kick-started your self-esteem yet?  Or...do you, perhaps, require additional encouragement? ;) *wiggles his eyebrows suggestively*

Not quite enough to say anything, but if it ever got to that point you'd know.

It was incredible; we got a good reaction from the crowd, mostly because of our Spheres of Madness (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MX5v7GfvSao) cover, and ran into an A&R rep from Metal Blade records who said he'd check us out at our next show since he missed this one! I'm exhausted, and pretty sure I'm fighting a cold, but I feel amazing. I even managed to turn a small profit off of ticket sales :D

Nice. I should be ordering one in the next week or so. Finally I'll be able to see what the button marked 'medium' (or 'high'. A man can have dreams) in the graphics menu on Skyrim does.

A good thing did come out of the freezer blowing up that I mentioned in the Annoy thread. I got to munch my way thorough a bucket of rum and raisin ice cream.

I found a 3DS + four games + some accessories on eBay for $215 if I instant buy it. I'm bloody tempted to buy it, if only because I'm pretty much guaranteed to make a good $50 profit if I resell just the 3DS, much less the other shit that comes with it. What do you guys reckon?

Right here (http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Nintendo-3DS-console-plus-games-and-accessories-/320853017499?pt=AU_Consoles&hash=item4ab454839b). Though they only ship to Australia, so that may be a problem for you.

Seriously, I'm so tempted to buy it, but it feels like it would be an impulse buy. I so goddamn torn right now. Especially since one of the games it comes with is Professor Layton and the Curious Village. I love the Professor Layton series (even though I've only played Pandora's Box).

I just bought the 3DS in question. I do want a 3DS and $215 is a good price for just the console and a fucking amazing deal for four additional games, especially when one of the games is one I really want. Assuming the seller doesn't fuck me over somehow, I think I made the right call.

Its only a cashier position, but fuck yes.  Because fucking money.  My money.  My own fucking money, that I can use to my own fucking ends.

Today I experienced a rare instance of karma working the way it should. On the way to work this morning, some kid on the bus was freaking out because he had accidentally dropped his  bus pass into the coin/ticket slot (the passes only need to be shown to the bus driver), and was told he wouldn't be able to get it back until either tomorrow or Friday since the drivers can't open the money box thingie. I felt bad for the kid, so I gave him one of my tickets (out of a book of ten) so he would be able to take the bus home from school in the afternoon.

A little while ago, as I was about to finish work, I got a call from my roommate saying she was off early and could swing by to give me a ride home, saving me from having to use a bus ticket to get back here. Karma! Or, more realistically, a happy coincidence, but either way, it's nice to see things even out -- those tickets aren't exactly cheap, after all.

I got to do something awesome today.

My grandfather has one of those big pretzel jars full of loose change collected over many years. Currently the jar probably weighs close to fifty pounds. A LOT of fucking coinage. I asked him if I could go through it for wheatback pennies--nothing more, I wouldn't take anything else, and I offered to replace what I found with normal pennies. He said sure and that I didn't even have to replace what I took.

So I spent all afternoon today on the floor going through mountains of change until my hands actually turned black from handling it. It took hours. I found about a dozen wheaties.

To me, that was awesome and goddammit I enjoyed myself!

I also have about $100 extra and plan to go on a shoppin spree this afternoon following hair removal, but this is relatively unimportant.

My friend's band Sinicle (https://www.facebook.com/Sinicle) debuted it's first official video tonight, and I'm actually in it! White shirt and large, black headphones; there's a really good closeup of me around 2:40 or so!
I also show up as a zombie earlier in the video, but it's kinda hard to tell which one I am sometimes, though there's a decent shot around 1:50, but you can't see the makeup (it was epic and incredibly convincing; my apartment manager thought I'd gotten in a fight).

You are the fucking awesomest person in the entire universe and I would like to marry you and impregnate you with our horribly mentally unstable psychotic demon babies. Don't ask me how that would work because I don't know either.

GOOD SHIT FROM TODAY:

On the way home from some errands I drove behind a car for a while with a license plate that read 'DMBLDORE' and a bumper sticker that said 'I BRAKE FOR HOUSE ELVES'. I very rarely tell people I love their cars but when I pulled up alongside I yelled through my window that he had the coolest plate. It was a nice youngish guy at the wheel and he laughed that I was so entertained. Then he said my car just made his day. I think that's my second-favourite part of my car--it always seems to make people happy. (For those who don't know, I drive a white VW New Beetle with multicoloured flowers all over the sides.)

Also, I saw a hipster fall off his bike while he was trying to fiddle with his iPhone and pedal at the same time.

And I made impromptu, last-second plans to drive to MD to see the boything for a few days tomorrow.

Back from my very impulsive impromptu visit with the boything. He gave me a sexy fedora that I wore for a bit without anything else, and I made him bleed. For normal people this would seem really weird but for him and me it just meant we had a lot of very enjoyable fun. Oh, and I managed NOT to cry when I left this time.


But I found a big blue bruise on my leg while getting dressed and have NO IDEA where it came from. I must have bumped him in our sleep or something because the man has a cast-iron skeleton.

And apparently the dog is wandering all over the house looking for me. That dog loves me. I joke that I'm gonna marry the dog and the Boything can move in with us and sleep at the foot of the bed. Still, I imagine that poor pooch with his big eyes looking for me and wondering why I left him... poor baby!!

If I can get it to stop exactly on anything without change it's great, but if I can get it to stop on, day, $25 or $40 or something that ends in a five or a zero without change, I just do a private internal victory dance!

Well into my second hour of Thief 2's final mission, Sabotage at Soulforge.  I swear, that one mission is at least twice, if not three times as long as Life of the Party or Masks.  The only reason I can do Life of the Party in under an hour is because I played that mission so often that I have almost the entire map, the location of nearly every secret,  key, enemy, and bystander memorized.

Nothing is as satisfying as your final, epic battle being you single-handedly taking on an extremely well-guarded factory/cathedral that's staffed by an army of security personnel, and dozens of security machines.  Storming the place is fun, but being able to finish the big boss while being completely undetected is almost orgasmic.

My mom finally agreed to let me try an ADHD medication (Vyvance) over the weekend to help me focus. Some of the side effects are supposed to include anxiety and becoming more emotional, so my worst fear was that it would exacerbate my anxiety. However, not only do I feel more focused, but my thoughts no longer fly all over the place at a million miles per hour, and I actually feel very calm and happy. I can't remember a time when I was this calm (boredom exempted). It's... simply... wonderful.

Now I just have to keep it a secret from my dad, but I don't think he'll notice a thing. ;)

For most of its duration, it also gets rid of my violent obsessions, which is a major plus. Even when the obsessions start popping up again, I am able to control them. I'm so happy I feel like singing.

This was a triumph.
I'm making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS.
It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.

Welcome back to your true self. :)
I'm happy for you.  I really am.

*Hugs* You hit it on the head with "true self", man. My anxiety is all about doubting myself, my capabilities, and the things I stand for, and the only moments of "calm" were more like periods of depersonalization and detachment. This is different and I feel like not only can I accomplish things, but I have the willpower to do so. I know now that this was the way I was supposed to be.

My mom and I watched an awesome documentary showing the making of the original Halloween. It was insanely interesting to see how they chose various cast members. I also learned that the mask they chose for Michael Myers was a Captain Kirk mask that they slightly altered and spray-painted white. That movie will never cease to be amazing.

I think I figured out a way to solve the issue I've been having with implementing scripting for my DDO Creator (henceforth known as Fire Forge).  I've been going about it the wrong way...instead of writing the scripts by hand in XML, and having to wrangle with XML interpretation code for all of it.  Fuck that jank!

I completely forgot about the serialization facilities that come with .Net...  Sooooo, I'm running a test using two classes and an enumeration (Skill class, tristate class, and Abilities enumeration) and developing a tool to do all the heavy lifting of serializing the scripts while I just write up the information.

Got my first interview at Chik-fil-A this afternoon. I was (far as I can tell) the only one on time for his interview, and they said that they're perfectly content to give me Saturday and Tues/Wed off for band practice since my schedule is otherwise pretty open, or just schedule me for the morning shifts. As a morning person who can't wake up past 8AM for shit, I will gladly be there at that time.

Now to wait and see if they call about a 2nd interview.

This so much, and congrats on the work everyone  :)

My day yesterday was pretty good, about a 9/10.

So I yesterday I had an appointment for hair removal (the spa is about a 90 minute drive) and decided to take a very scenic route to check out a mall I haven't been to in forever. So here's the run-down

• Found a pair of fishnet stockings that Cait told me to try out :D. I experimented them with a couple of looks and think I have some shorts that look nice with them, but then I need to find some tops which don't make me look slutty. And no pics for several weeks at least, I need to find some cloths that look nice with them and let my face heal up (more below).
• While looking for them at Hot Topic and Spencers I had two awesome conversations with the cashiers. The first was a cool dude with dreads and we had a conversation for about 20 minutes (Hot Topic was empty) about, of all things, Mistah J. He said Ledger's Joker was the best, but I like Hamill's Joker, tbh. The conversation started when I found a shirt with this picture on it here (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/1/12/HarleyqLG.jpg/180px-HarleyqLG.jpg). They only had it in Large and since it was a men's shirt I was looking for a small/XS, which they didn't have :(. The other cashier had a bunch of cool piercings and we talked for about 10 minutes about piercings, tattoos, and suspensions.
• While at the mall, I found a lovely blue dress
• Also at the same mall, a random woman told me I had the most beautiful hair.  :D

After leaving the mall, I got lost for about 20 minutes in Maryland, that was fun. Anyways, once I found out where I was, I managed to get to the spa exactly on time, my phone changed to 2:30 right when I opened the door :D. The laser itself didn't go so well and my face feels/looks horrible, and probably will until Monday at the least :(. Worst of all, I'm instructed to wear no make-up or take any hot showers to let my skin heal.

But then for the rest of the day I hung out with my best friend and it was pretty fun.

EDIT: And today I got my first fuck no, I was kind waiting for one of those :D

Now I'm wrapping up a song I'm writing for my cousin, since I couldn't be in town for her special day. Okay, so it's a baptism and I don't technically care a whole hell of a lot, but it seems fitting since I can't be around for it and it's just one of those things.

Be careful with that.  According to movies (and even video games LIKE OBLIVION), randomly found objects tend to either be cursed, or will drag you unwittingly into a wacky and/or dangerous adventure.

Birmingham City qualified for the play-offs.

Okay, technically it's not mathematically secure but our goal difference is about 23 better than Middlesbrough with one game to play, so unless we lose 20-0 to Reading at home or something we're good, and not even Birmingham are capable of messing up that badly.

So, it's election day in Alberta, and it looks like the Wild Rose Party -- which is even more right wing than the party we normally have, the oxymoron loving Progressive Conservatives -- isn't going to win, as was originally predicted by a number of alleged experts. In fact, CTV is currently projecting a PC majority government.

As much as I would like to see a non-conservative party win (at which point, flocks of pigs will take to the skies, while Satan watches on from an igloo) I'm rather relieved that Wild Rose isn't getting in.

Edit: And it looks like my riding chose PC over Wild Rose. I'm actually slightly surprised, given the number of right wing assholes around here.

Not in Alberta. We're the toned-down Texas of Canada, complete with oil, ranches, and old dudes who wear cowboy boots & hats everywhere they go.

Granted, Alberta is still more liberal than a very large chunk of the States. Different political dynamic and all that.

In other news, the PC definitely has a majority. I'm still not pleased that this province won't elect a more liberal party & stop being too stubborn to affect any real change, but it's better than the only realistic alternative.

Funny thing is that PC's success is at least partially due to Liberal & NDP supporters voting for them just to keep Wild Rose out.

Random stupidity on the internet just made my day. There was this argument about homosexuality and is it "normal" or not. (Not again, I thought. ) It was just something that came up in a derail and I was skipping through it and planning to ignore the whole fiasco when this one argument came up:

Others had already commented that homosexuality happens in animals and they were having the usual flame-war over that when one guy comes in and says "How does two of any other sort of animal exgage in 'homosexual activity'? (here is a hint, non-homosapiens cannot by definition)."

...HAHAHAHAHAHA!

(I think he was confusing ancient greek and latin meanings of the word homo.) (One means "human" the other means "same")

This is just such a brand new way of making a stupid argument (Or possibly trying to redefine homosexuality) that it made me burst into laughter. And the rest of his argument was equally full of trying-to-sound-smart-but-not-actually-understanding-the-words-he-wrote. (That's my thing!) Even better if we take his argument to its logical conclusion: Homosexuality is now defined as human-sexual behavior. Therefore everyone is gay! (Well, except the zoophiles. And the asexuals.)

Something that made me titter like an immature child...I found a package of condoms behind some deodorant when I was doing stock rotation today.  A pack of Trojans...non-lubricated Trojans.  Someone was considering purchasing non-lubricated condoms.

Wut?

Some people are sensitive to the kinds of lubricants that are used in condoms.  You really don't want to break out on your happy-bits.  So, unlubricated.

They're probably using a lube they can handle, separately.

In related news, I can't use most condoms. And the ones I can are expensive.

Something good: I actually got out of the house today! :D And did some exercises this morning.

On the way home from work yesterday, ma stopped by the liquor store next to UAMS (yes, UAMS has a liquor store right across the street, its Arkansas) and got two bottles of champagne.  Okay, not proper champagne, but still...actually pretty good.

So, I'm acting like a classy bastard and am drinking frosty cold sparkling wine out of a very, VERY fine wine glass.  When I move out, I need to invest in a small set of these things...  (Wine glasses, that is, not champagnes.)

My band played a fantastic show at the Whisky a-Go-Go tonight. We had enough time to play our Decapitated cover, which we'd planned on skipping, and the audience fucking loved it. The best part of the night, and possibly one of the best moments of my life, was hauling our gear to the car and hearing fans chant our name (Nihilitus,Nihilitus!) as we walked out. Words can't describe how amazing that is.

My cousin's girlfriend is finally giving birth today(labor is being induced). The orignal due date was the middle of March, March came and went. Then they changed the due date to the middle of April, that date came and went, then they were told if she didn't give birth by today, that they would have to induce labor.

Recently I cracked open an old copy of The Joys of Yiddish. I think most of the words in this book can be broken down into these categories:

1) Religious terms
2) Insults
     a) Insults that weren't always insults
     b) Compliments used ironically to be insulting
     c) Twenty-plus ways for "complete and utter fool," all with their own slightly differing connotations
3) Compliments
     a) Compliments that were derived from insults
     b) Compliments that you think are compliments until you accidentally use them in the wrong context, where they become insults, thus making you look like one of the words from 2.c.
4) Things parents do to/with their kids (no, I'm not talking about wincest, get your mind out of the gutter)
5) Neutral words
     a) That can also be used as insults
     b) That can also be used as compliments
     c) That can be used as insults and/or compliments, possibly at the same time

I've learned how serialization in C# works and how to make it work!  And, holy mother of FUCKBALLS, is it a breeze compared to fucking with XML.  I don't have to fucking box with element parsing code, making sure the nodes are read properly and that all the needed values are pulled and are as they ought to be!

This might seem trivial, but you do not know how fucking happy this makes me!  For fucking ONCE, the code's doing the heavy lifting!  With the Script Writer for Fire Forge, I barely have to lift a god damned finger to write scripts and have them output properly and decompiled/read properly!

FUCK YOU, XML!

While good for me, this event was more good for someone else...

A random guildie on DDO asked if anyone was online, not having anything better to do, I told him I was, and he said that he was bored and feeling down.  Now, I didn't even know this guy, never met him before that I know of.  But, even with that, I asked him what was wrong and he said he and his girl were having some issues with one another.  We talked for a little bit, and with a well-placed question or two, found the source to the problem and the solution!

Helping a random stranger I've never even met solve their problems and making them happier people...there's very few things that feel better than that.

Doesn't sound like it. We're supposed to be the headlining band that plays while this little kid in the pit discovers the Power of Metal and destroys a massive skinhead that's been giving him trouble.
Thats awesome! Congrats.
Thanks ^_^

Sounds kickass.  Congratulations. :)

So... my band got offered a role in an indie film, which we should be filming around August/September. This may be the singularly most badass thing we've been asked to do so far.

Sounds like a couple of nice gigs.  Congrats you two!  :D

In another spat of good band news, we have our first t-shirt design, which should be available for our show on Friday :D (let me know if the image doesn't show up)

As for the shirt:That's really nice.  Whoever drew that has some talent.  The band's name is Nihilitus?  I'm not quite able to easily read heavy metal band names I'm not familiar with yet.

I've managed it. Just undo the hooks, pull the straps down your arms through the sleeves, and yank it out though the bottom of your shirt. Works even with long sleeves (unless they're tight).

I became an uncle. At 8:03 last night, my sister-in-law gave birth (through C-section) to a girl. She was about 2 weeks early and is a little small, but is otherwise healthy.

My fiancee came home from work and said I needed to get ready to go out, since we needed to leave when her mom got home.
"Why do we need to go to Woodbridge?"
"Nikki is in labor."

As crazy as it sounds, my first two thoughts (in this order) were "at least she didn't wait until Sunday," which is my birthday, and "oh crap, their dad is at a reenactment!" (My father-in-law does Civil War Reenacting.) My fiancee had already called her father, so that was taken care of. Ironically enough, he somehow ended up right behind as when we got close to the hospital. (He said later he wasn't sure exactly how to get to the hospital since he was coming in from a different direction. The he saw my mother-in-law's PT Cruiser, which has bat wings and bunny ears, and fell in behind us.)

My brother-in-law met us outside and walked us in. Nikki's first words to us were "I'm having a C-section. Contractions suck." The C-section was because every time she rolled over, the baby's heart rate dropped, then would gradually come back up and stabilize. Soon after, they wheeled her into the OR, and about 45 minutes after that, a nurse came out and told us we could see the baby in the nursery. We bolted.

It took about 2 hours to do all the check-ups because the computer was giving them fits. Of course, we couldn't tell what was going on; all we knew is the nurses would point to the computer and look concerned. (My BiL told us later the computer would randomly pull up the files of other babies.) She has a set of lungs on her! There is sound-proof glass between the nursery and the hallway, but at times, you could hear her screaming through the glass.

She already has my BiL wrapped around her very tiny pinkie finger. He told us later than when she starts dating, he'll be sitting on the porch, loading his Glock (which he does not own), saying "I don't mind going back to prison." (He's never been in prison.)


Note: Technically, none of the relationships listed are actual ones since I haven't yet married my fiancee. But since everyone treats us like we're married, I'm going to use the terms

Now I need to get a side project together to work on it, and other (mostly instrumental) music I've been working on, since none of the stuff I write on my own is usable in a death metal band.

I wrote a song like that.  I didn't have anyone else to play the other parts so I had to use a synth.  Oh lonesome me. :(

Oh wait, this is supposed to be a good stuff thread... um... I have more wine!

Went out with my band and some friends for my birthday. Drank way more than I'm used to, and am still mostly functioning, though I can tell that my thoughts and reflexes are a bit slow, and don't really care for the feeling.

Too bad this led to a rather strange situation with my best friend (yay alcohol!) that doesn't seem to have yielded any results at all. If it's not clear from the above statement, I'm a little drunk, which I'm not used to, so I'm going to finish that thought in the morning (it also doesn't fit the "good" theme of this thread).

800th post! Whoo!

My band finished recording our first song today. Our singer will have it mixed and mastered this weekend, which means it will also be available for download for any curious/supportive ears. I'm sure I'll end up saying this again, but anyone wanting a link to said download should PM me, and then let me know what you think (even if you're not a metalhead).

ETA: Also, it's my birthday today, so I used some of the BDay money I got (and by 'some' I mean 'more than is responsible for any one person') to get tons of CDs. Most of it was stuff I'd downloaded already, but at least now it's legal! And some new music that's just amazing :D (Meshuggah, Corelia, Periphery). Between this and last night's shenanigans, it's been one of my better birthdays.

Ska dancing is called skanking, yes. It doesn't necessarily mean the dancers are skanks.

In science class, we have had to work on a project where we give a presentation on a certain type of animal. The presentation has to be rather in-depth, as the requirements include number of chromosomes, ecology, phylogeny, etc. If you met all the basic requirements, then you could choose two of six other facts to add to your presentation for extra credit. Since I completed all the basic requirements, I did two. When all the presentation were finished, the class would vote on which animal was the most interesting, and the person who won would get even more extra credit. Everyone was on some sort of tropical biome/marsupial kick, so I decided to do something different. I gave a presentation on the narwhal.

The animals presented were (yes I wrote them all down):
- Red kangaroo (Macropus rufus)
- Goodfellow's tree kangaroo (Dendrolagus goodfellowi)
- Aye-aye (Daubentonia madagascariensis)
- Lionfish (Pterois volitans)
- Philippine tarsier (Carlito syrichta)
- Blue-footed booby (Sula nebouxii)
- Broadclub cuttlefish (Sepia latimamus)
- Grizzly bear (Ursus arctos horriblis)
- Koala (Phascolarctos cinereus)
- Eastern Quoll (Dasyurnus viverrinus)
- Narwhal (Monodon monoceros)
- Mountain tapir (Tapirus pinchaque)
- Killer whale (Orcinus orca)
- Keel-billed toucan (Ramphastos sulfuratus)
- Two-toed sloth (Choloepus hoffmani)

The finalists were:
- Goodfellow's tree kangaroo
- Aye-aye
- Blue-footed booby
- Broadclub cuttlefish
- Grizzly bear
- Narwhal
- Two-toed sloth

Which was then narrowed down to the narwhal vs. the grizzly bear, and my narwhal won in a landslide vote.

So now I have super-extra-credit, which will really boost my grade. I'm especially happy about this because I've been struggling to maintain a B in that class all year.
Title: Re: Anything Good Happen Today?

You're pretty lucky, my one friend IRL has wonky periods, and and didn't have one for 6 months, and then had it for a month afterwards, which is the reason she was put on birth control. Now my sister was put on birth control due to the fact that her periods caused her to collapse and blackout.

Anyhow, I finally invested in a decent carry bag to put my stuff in, that I bring with me that doesn't fit in my pocketbook. I was using a green grocery bag for about a year now.

The band As I Lay Dying (Bite me, I like them) are filming a new video on Wednesday and are looking for extras. I'm gonna head down and give it a shot; they're doing auditions the same day. Seeing as my casting resume is currently bigger (and more recently updated) than my "normal" resume, I figure it's worth a shot. They're not a small band, so being able to add one of their videos should be fairly impressive, at least to the right people.

Last 3 days:

Thursday:
My friend's bachelor party (which I planned). Despite communication issues, and having a suit fitting immediately before, it went off extremely well. We had plenty of fun at the arcade, and the sushi dinner was excellent.

Friday:
My soon-to-be-married friend, a mutual friend of ours, and I all went to PaizoCon. We nearly didn't get in, but we had a lot of fun. I didn't realize that there was a major LARPing aspect. I'll probably do a post in the Entertainment subforum to explain it.

Saturday:
We had the rehearsal brunch, the highlight of which was my toast as best man. I kept in mind all of the warnings I had heard (no embarrassing stories, focus on the groom, keep it short), and after I was done, people (including the groom) congratulated me on having a good speech.

And the wedding is tomorrow! I'm so excited!

Okay, so this is going to sound weird, but bear with me. I was walking home from the grocery store, and there was a topless woman walking down the street. That's not what I'm considering the "good thing" for the day, since she was clearly high as fuck and taking advantage of something like that, even peripherally, makes me uncomfortable. What astounded me was, I am in a very busy part of LA, and there are tourists everywhere. None of them cared at all that this woman had her breasts out in public, even with the number of children around. I'm considering this a good day because it seems like a sign that our culture, at least in some parts of the country, is loosening up a bit and not getting so worked up over exposed skin.

Title: Re: Anything Good Happen Today?
Post by: erictheblue on July 15, 2012, 08:50:15 pm
Minor success, but one that I am internally gloating about.

I have done live action role-play based on White Wolf's New World of Darkness system for about 3 years. About a year and a half ago, I started a new character in the vampire venue. I put in an application to play a particular bloodline, which is known to be insane. However, the character himself does not know he is of this bloodline, believing he is a completely different type of vampire. (He is a Malkovian who believes he is a Meket.) The description of Malkovians say they are not normally welcome in most of the vampire groups because of their insanity, but it also says some are accepted. I wanted my character to be in one of the groups that do not normally take Malkovians, but justified it by pointing out that no one (including him) would know in-character. (Ordo Dracul)

The local story-teller refused to approval my application as long as I wanted to put him in play as a member of the Ordo. Faced with "ditch the character" or "bring him into play not as a member of the Ordo," I agreed to bring him in Unaligned. At that point, my application was approved. The ST told me I could join any covenant in-game, so long as I RP-ed actually joining.

A few months later, the venue I was playing in (an IRC game, since there was no game where I lived) died due to lack of players. I kept my Malkovian in the database on the hopes I would get to play him again.

My fiancee and I moved to DC in May, and there is a very active game here. So out came my Malkovian and back into play he went. Only the ST, my fiancee, and I knew he was not actually a Meket. (One friend has since been told as well.) In the 4 games since, I have actively RP-ed him meeting with members of the Ordo and going through the initiation. Last night, he was accepted as a member of the Ordo and as a member of a faction of the Ordo (Dying Light).

As I RP-ed my way and then was accepted, all I could think was "[ST's name], you can [perform a sexual act on me]. Ordo won't take a Malkovian, my [rear end]. Scott is an Ordo and I did it, you [jerk]."

I got slung with jury duty. At first I was pissed off to the nth degree, but it turns out they're going to pay me a ridiculous amount of money for it. $104.75 per day for the first ten days and any subsequent days will net me $235.65 per day. They've got me on a six week trial too, that's over eight grand in total.

That is just fucking fantastic, I'll finally have the money to build my gaming rig and then some. That also means I can start doing some Let's Plays. New South Wales state government, I love you so much right now.

My two coworkers, who run the ovens, both admitted that they prefer when I mix bread than when either manager does, since not only is my bread easier to bake, but I organize everything so they can bake it all easily, rather than moving crap around for an hour like they do when the bosses mix.

Next week, one of the bakers is on vacation, so I'm helping with the ovens.  I mentioned wanting to bake the day after I mix and the other baker claimed that's not fair. 

I felt pretty good about that.

I am going to see her tomorrow night and give her a copy of my band's demo, and try really hard not to fuck this up and friendzone myself. I smiled for so long on the way home that my jaw hurts.
Also, sent out my band's first t-shirt shipment (you know who you are ;)).

While I suppose it is more on the neutral side due to circumstances, I still count it as a good thing in the long run:

Bought a bike today because I have to take my truck in for some very expensive repairs soon and it will leave me vehicle-less for a day or two. Took it for a 2 mile spin and promptly died when I got home. Apparently I haven't been using certain muscles in my thighs for the last 10 years (last time I rode a bike).

I managed to donate blood for the first time in about 16 years. Before we moved to FL, my fiancee donated platelets, plasma, and red blood cells every 2 weeks. (It's a rotating schedule, but platelets can be done every 2 weeks, with the others mixed in as they can be.) After we moved back, she started up again. She's been poking me to donate too (at least whole blood, which is what most people think of when they think of "donating blood.")

I hate needles and am a very difficult stick. I've also had a tough time being able to donate over the years (either because I couldn't find a place or I was under deferral). I finally screwed up my courage and agreed to go with her. Last night when we were talking about it, a friend of ours asked if he could come along.

In what I consider to be an irony, my fiancee could not actually donate (her iron was too low). Our friend and I could donate, though. I only did whole blood, which took about 10 minutes from start to finish. Our friend did the "donate everything," which took about 2.5 hours. (Part of that was because they had to restart him because the machine messed up.)

We all have appointments in 2 weeks to go again, and next time, I am going to try the "donate everything."

I think I feel confident enough to reveal my answer to the abysmal stand-alone character creator for D&D Online.  For those of you who have never seen it, here's a screencap of it.  Note that the pic is shrunk down because the form itself is fucking HUGE.  Its so long, that it can't fit on my laptop's screen.

(http://i655.photobucket.com/albums/uu273/RH-00/th_ddo-character-planner-screencap_31-July-2012.png) (http://s655.photobucket.com/albums/uu273/RH-00/?action=view&current=ddo-character-planner-screencap_31-July-2012.png)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's a fucking mess, isn't it?  Compare that to my current (working) design for Fire Forge:

(http://i655.photobucket.com/albums/uu273/RH-00/th_fireforge-reveal_31-July-2012.png) (http://s655.photobucket.com/albums/uu273/RH-00/?action=view&current=fireforge-reveal_31-July-2012.png)

So comparatively clean, you could eat off it.  The main program itself is still mostly a skeleton, the only partly-working section is the Skills tab, pictured above.  I've been spending most of my time getting the scripting design and tool capable of making this an easily-extensible near-dream of a program.

Before this, I had only the foggiest clue how serialization in C# worked.  I didn't even really know how it'd all fit together, but my ramshackle collection of ideas (many fueled by my good friend, caffeine) turned out looking better than its competitor, and I'm doing this all by myself, learning shit as I fucking go.

To the creators of the D&D Online Character Planner, you wouldn't know good GUI design if it bit your dicks off, and I could design a better interface than you in my god damned sleep.

I'll double check how I'm doing it. The easy(and slow in enterprise applications) way largely consists of attaching a keyword to the serializable object, and making sure the right constructors exist for .net to do everything for you. But I don't remember how I'm committing it to a string off the top of my head.
Title: Re: Anything Good Happen Today?
Post by: RavynousHunter on July 31, 2012, 08:00:45 pm
I know that you need (for the way I'm doing it) to include System.Runtime.Serialization and System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.Binary.  Also need to give your class the [Serializable()] tag, and make sure its derived from ISerializable.  After that, all you need is a deserialization constructor, and to override GetObjectData().

Looks kinda like this...

Code: [Select]
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

using System.Runtime.Serialization;
using System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.Binary;

namespace Creator
{
    [Serializable()]
    public sealed class SP_Type : ISerializable
    {
        public string    Name;
        public List<int> SP_Table;

        public SP_Type()
        {
            this.Name     = "Generic SP Table";
            this.SP_Table = new List<int>( 20 );
        }

        public SP_Type( SP_Type other )
        {
            this.Name     = other.Name;
            this.SP_Table = other.SP_Table;
        }

        // Deserialization Constructor
        public SP_Type( SerializationInfo info, StreamingContext ctxt )
        {
            this.Name     = ( string    ) info.GetValue( "Name",     typeof( string    ) );
            this.SP_Table = ( List<int> ) info.GetValue( "SP_Table", typeof( List<int> ) );
        }

        // Serialization Function
        public void GetObjectData( SerializationInfo info, StreamingContext ctxt )
        {
            info.AddValue( "Name",     this.Name     );
            info.AddValue( "SP_Table", this.SP_Table );
        }
    };

I may be getting work as early as tomorrow...doing some housework for a member of a local non-profit my ma's a part of, stuff like painting rooms and stripping linoleum.  The lady I'm workin for is offering my bro and I $20/hr, and she said she likely has enough to keep us busy for a week.

So, I'm thinkin, 5 hours a day for 7 days...could work out to near $700.  Combine that with her spreading the word to other members of the organization, it could turn into even more work for us.  And they're almost all middle-aged white ladies with too much money and too little fortitude.

I was at a graduation party today and heard a man say "It's like playing Russian Roulette- whoever whines the most gets what he wants."

Sir... That's not how Russian Roulette works. At all.

This was a good thing?

On topic: Made a ninja style run through the store at work today. Vaulted over shopping carts and slid under one customer's arm. Haven't had that much fun since my first go at parkour.

I started watching Breaking Bad. Excellent show.
I was considering taking a lookse at that show last afternoon. It does look rather spiffy.

Do so. It's quite good.

Agreed, but just remember that when it is slow, it is very slow, and when it is exciting it is very exciting (i.i. slog through the slow ones because the good ones are fucking awesome)

Althought I'm still feeling the effects of my cold, last night was the first night in over a week that I got a full 8 hours.  Before that, even with Niquil (which I hate taking, along with pretty much every medicine), I'd only get about 4 hours a night.

Well last night, I took just under a full dose and lay on the couch to watch TV.  I remember watching the Top 100 Video Games when next thing I know, American Ninja Warrior was on.  I looked at the clock and it was 5 minutes until my alarm was to go off.

I don't even remember closing my eyes!

It's not just today, but I've been in my home town (San Diego) since Friday, and have seen some of my closest friends from high school on Saturday. It's nice to know we're still close, and willing to jump through all sorts of hurdles to support one another. Also a Saturday thing, my mom's hooked me up with a job as a porter/temp agent for apartments through a place she used to work for. I'm going to call them when I get back in town, and then my year+ of unemployment should be coming to an end! :D
Also, yesterday was a surprise party for my cousin's 18th birthday, and my uncle (the one who disowned me over religious opinions) is finally acting normal again :D We talked, played games, and I had my first actual burger in over a decade. It was quite nice. I also had a long conversation with my grandpa about music and technology.
Then, today, I saw another friend from HS, and we won tickets to an advance screening of Bourne Legacy for tomorrow night. She also discussed visiting for a weekend once I've got a job and can afford to do things again. That's going to be equal parts strange and fun, but isn't that how the best things in life always are?

I found the perfect pair of sunglasses.  They wrap around very close to my eyes, so no light can possibly get to my eyes from the sides.  The frames are thick enough that no light can get in from the top or bottom.  They grip my head tightly enough that they don't fall, but not so tightly that it is uncomfortable.

I have multiple migraines almost every week, and a good pair of sunglasses goes a long way toward preventing them and reducing their severity.  This is a major victory for me.

Suzan DelBene, who I am interning for, got second place in the primary for Washington's 1st Congressional District. Essentially, she is now the Democratic nominee, and will face off with John Koster in the general election.

Also, I got to meet a sitting member of Congress - Rick Larsen (D-WA). I think that's a first for me.

I went to my first day of my 10th grade year and these are the events I considered good.(I'll make a separate post of this in the things that annoy me thread after this.)First my friend Micheal was still and we hade a few laughs at lunch. Second the majority of the classes I had were ones I wanted with the exception of one. Also last and foremost in my mind I meet a boy who immigrated from Vietnam he speaks  no english but he is so cool (I also may be mildly attracted to him.) so that was what was good to me on my first day. (It still mostly sucked.)

I've managed to get the problem with the SP tables not loading properly hammered out, I've expanded the Class...class, to include an identifier string that tells us what SP table we need to load for it (for a class with no casting power, we have the "none" SP table, which is all 0s).  I've also gotten the classes, as they are currently, serializing and loading into the script writer just fine with minimal effort.

Also, got skeleton code for all the other program classes I'll need, and I wrote up (currently non-working, and won't work until I get scripts written up) script loading code for all of em into Fire Forge itself, so, once I get them all hammered out, I'll have about half the loading work already done!  I think, all in all, I'm about one third to halfway through, at this point.  Skills, Spells, and SP Types are all done...Classes are at about 75% done, and the rest I've either gotten a bit of progress on, or at least have working skeleton code for.

Today has been a productive day.

So, again, this was technically yesterday, but I was incredibly busy and didn't really have time (or energy) for computer things.

First and foremost, I finally got a job! I'm now a porter-for-hire through a staffing company that helps apartment complexes find additional maintenance and leasing staff when they need the help. Take that, 1.5yrs of unemployment!
Secondly, after getting back from the interview and changing, I went to a bar and had a really long conversation with one of my closest friends. I also enjoyed getting drunk for the first time, which may have been due to the fact that my friend is more of a philosophical drunk than, y'know, ragey or depressed or something. I also tried my first tequila shot, and this mixed drink that's basically whiskey and lemonade, which was surprisingly good! I then proceeded to crash on my friend's couch, since she lives closer to the bar and I don't currently have keys to my building (another story for a different thread). Not a bad evening at all.

Got to work for my mom's friend again today, which means an extra $70 in my pocket (and, later, my account).  Also, I heard what is possibly the most hilarious thing I've ever heard in my life...

The lady's son is, unfortunately, very autistic, but he's the sweet kind that's kinda just off in his own little world and wouldn't hurt anyone.  Anywho, we were in her car, she was takin my brother and I ('long with her and her son) out to Sonic for dinner, and the topic of the whole Chick-Fil-A idiocy came up.  Her son said the most epic five words ever, regarding them: "They're a bunch of losers."

SO.  MANY.  POINTS.

After getting some recommendations from other people, I went out today scouting for tattoo shops. Because I've had a shitty few months, just got out of a bad situation, and my birthday is coming, and I fucking deserve a present! All I intended to do was get appraisals for one specific tattoo, a quote from Shakespeare's 'Much Ado About Nothing': 'For I was born to speak all mirth and no matter.' I asked around in NY (pre-clusterfuck) and was told usually $200-$250, for a little script tattoo on a wrist. Which is what my back tattoo cost and it's about ten times bigger. So when the second place I checked today said it would be $100, I was pretty damn happy.

And even happier when they said they could do it right then.

And WAY happier when it ended up costing $90.

So I walked away today with a tattoo without expecting to get one. I love it. And it didn't hurt nearly as much as I thought it would for being such a sensitive area. Probably because the needle she used was really tiny.

Will show photos once I can take the bandage off.

Between that answer and the fact they included me in a group photo for the entire shop (which consists of a grand total of nine people, including me) when I've only been there a grand total of a month and a half as of tomorrow, it's looking like this job is going to be a keeper.  You know the phrase, "do something you enjoy, and you'll never work a day in your life?"

I have been dropping my resume my temp agencies in hopes of finding something to tide me over until my Bar results come in. Wednesday I got a call from one of them, asking me to come in for an interview yesterday. I got there and they told me they have a job starting Monday and running for at least a month, maybe a little more.

So starting Monday, I will be back in the workforce for the first time in 3 years. Pay isn't a lot, but it will be enough to cover my expenses for the next month, as well as a little extra. (I need to call Social Services and see if this will end my eligibility for food stamps, which I just got approved for.)

"For a great number of reasons that I don’t want to go into, today was shaping up to be one of the worst days of my life. You know, the kind of day when you just want to lock yourself in your room, turn off your phone, and cry until there’s nothing left in you. One of those days, up until I got on the MAX.

Five stops from home, the train doors slid open and a little girl got on with her family. She couldn’t have been older than six, and was wearing a clearly homemade pink cape and huge pink sunglasses. She sat herself down and proudly informed me that she was a superhero. Figuring I may as well humor her, I asked how the heroics had been going. With a pout, she explained that she’d been looking all day and still hadn’t found any bad guys to fight. I pointed out that if she couldn’t find the bad guys, she could look for the good guys and help them. She agreed enthusiastically, and wrote it down in a little pink notebook with “HERO BOOK” written on the cover in glitter pen. I asked if I could get a picture of her, but she refused- she couldn’t risk anyone knowing her secret identity.

We kept talking for the rest of the ride, and she told me all about her superpowers and how her kitten sidekick was guarding her room at home. As the train rattled into my stop, I thanked her for her conversation and got up to leave. Without warning, she wrapped herself around my leg in a huge hug. I looked down at her in surprise, and she gave the biggest smile I’ve ever seen.

“Hey mister,” she said, “thanks for being one of the good guys.”

I got to have a nice, friendly back-and-forth with a Druid in DDO today during a Delera's run.  I kept teasing him for being a hippie, tree-hugging dwarf, and he kept teasing me about being a boring, stuffy Monk who only eats broccoli.

Got the internet fixed after a week of problems that essentially kept me offline!

As far as things I wanted to post go, my job's been going great. The apartments I'm contracted out to said they want to keep me working for them indefinitely, and would hire me outright if they could afford the fee needed to break my contract with my employer. They even agreed to give me a 4-day work week so I'd have time for my band's shows without needing time off.

Yesterday at Summer Slaughter was fucking brutal. The first two rows in front of the stage was almost exclusively our fans, and the pits we got were absolutely vicious. I even saw a few absolute strangers wearing our shirts, and had some people come up to us and say they showed up early just to catch our set. Also, BTBAM fucking killed their set. Such a good freakin' day.

ETA: Dunno how I forgot this, but this morning I deposited my first paycheck in over 3yrs.

My dad's best friend Kevin lives in New York and has been quite alone and depressed for some time now, especially after my dad's death. My dad was working on a massive model train landscape that he built from scratch, and we wanted to give it to Kevin to have something to remember him by, as well as something fun to work on since he's stuck at home due to disabilities. It was going to cost a couple hundred dollars to ship, but my grandmother who also lives in New York will instead take it back with her so he can have it. This makes me so happy. I've wanted him to have it for ages now.

I HAVE A NEW KITTEH!

I was about to go to bed when I heard some faint meowing outside. I went out, and sitting on the deck was this beautiful, and very hungry looking kitten. I put some food and water in a couple of bowls, and he sucked it all down like there was no tomorrow.

I brought him inside, and my mom and grandmother both fell in love with him, as did I. We had to keep him. We couldn't just give him some food, then send him off into the cold unknown.

I gave him a bath because he was smelleh, and now he smells good. He's super soft, like a rabbit. And he's SUCH A SWEET CAT. He's been attached to me all night. Even as I type this, I type with one hand because I have to hold him in the other.

I named him Max Power. Here he is:

I'm seven episodes into season two and so far, while the show is a little slow and the family drama side of things is a bit over-emphasised, overall it's fairly decent, especially for a drama.

It must be "obtain a cat" week. I'm getting a 1-year-old kitty to foster (possibly keep, the owner and I need to work out whether or not he'll be able to afford to take her back) later on today. She has one of the prettiest coat patterns I've seen -- mostly black, grey and cream bullseye tabby, with swirls of copper throughout. I'll post pics of her when I bring her home, and get her settled in a bit.

How's your other cat adjusting to the kitten?
Title: Re: Anything Good Happen Today?
Post by: Hades on August 30, 2012, 10:08:35 am
Creep (my other cat) is taking it surprisingly well. In his younger days he was quite the little hellion. Any time the subject of another cat, or even a dog got brought up, we had to consider that Creep would torment any new additions. Just a few weeks ago we turned away a kitten that our neighbor offered us. However, that kitten had a home, so there was no guilt or consequences involved in turning it away.

Max, on the other hand, has obviously been stray for a while. He's got no meat on him. He's all fuzz and bones. He was dirty and smelly. We had to take him, regardless of how Creep might react.

He's been good, though. He's hissed at Max a couple times, but all in all he seems to be taking it in stride. I chalk it up to him being older and less full of piss and vinegar than he used to be.

It's been a few years since I've had them out.  Not that long, but I do check them every so often.  Last time I had them out, all the cart-based games worked.  Even Legend of Zelda (NES) still had my first file on it where I beat the game the first time.  Never saved over it.  Same with Link to the Past (SNES).
If they ever were lost or corrupted, I'd be a little bummed, but I know stuff like that can't last forever, what with the batteries being so old.

Technically this was yesterday but... I volunteered at an Aboriginal festival, got a volunteer gig doing research for the service running it, and was welcomed into the community by some of the elders. Given that until two years ago I'd believed that my family's Aboriginal heritage was a hoax created by my aunt to get benefits (gotta love my mum's racism and bitchery), this is pretty significant.

I also got to taste crocodile and emu. Crocodile tastes like the best parts of fish and chicken, emu tastes like steak.

I feel really good today, like, better than I have in quite a bit.  I went for a nice run just a few minutes ago, and its an absolutely beautiful day today...I was actually a little disappointed that I had to go inside, which is a very rare thing.  I feel really relaxed and calm, if I didn't know better, I'd swear I was high, lol.

Last night my dad and I rode our motorcycles through the country on an old favorite road of ours. We ended up pulling over in a dark area and you could see every star in the sky.

By sheer happenstance, I turned around and lo and behold there was a bright orange flaming streak in the sky that I at first took to be an airplane or firework. It took me a couple seconds to realize it was a shooting star, the biggest and brightest I've ever seen and which I now think was a large chunk of space debris burning up on reentry because before it winked out it started breaking apart. I grabbed my dad, pointed at it and we were both slack-jawed at what we were seeing. It must have been visible for a good three or four seconds before vanishing. He said it was the brightest shooting star he'd ever seen in his life and that he'd remember it for the rest of his days.

And on a less spectacular but no less pleasing note, on the way home I finally rolled over the 1,000 mile mark on my bike, which means it's now past it's break-in period. ;D

My feet hurt but in a good way.  Not only did I do an action that was 100% me, with help from no one else, but I got some good exercise in.

...Which I sorta negated by stopping at the local ice cream shop on the way back and buying a cone with Sunset Island Rainbow Sherbet.

Probably need to ease it off for a while, matey.  Sounds like your tolerance is building up.  Half a liter of 100 proof though... really isn't all that much. (Says the former sot).

My favorite black metal artist posted this on FB

Очи чёрные, очи страстные
 Очи жгучие и прекрасные
 Как люблю я вас, как боюсь я вас
 Знать, увидел вас я в недобрый час

And I read it as I would normally read something in english, and I didnt realize it was russian after I read it.

My cat came home from the vet this morning. The surgery went really well, and she seems to be healing up nicely. The bill was expensive ($423), but seeing how happy she was when I came in to pick her up made it all worth it. She's an adorable little bugger.

Nay, my brother, nothing so pedestrian! Atop my two-wheeled steed I didst ride along the dangerous path into the fabled city of Portland. I braved the sidewalks and bridges of this many-rivered metropolis with one goal in mind- to acquire the needed armamanents to conquer the insidious armies of the facial hair!

My sole guide in my quest was the light voice in my ear, the dulcet tones of that blessed spirit who calls herself "Siri" and her mighty tool, the legendary Global Positioning System. Down Portsmouth and Lombard, across Clay and Davis, my pedal-powered vessel carried me swift as the wind. And lo, not two hours later I saw it, that massive structure of concrete and more concrete with magnificent red chimney, that ancient citadel known only as the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry!

With hands swift and sure I locked my steed to a nearby pole, and strode in as befits a hero. I nodded to the guards of this industrial temple- I meant them no threat, and they were none to me. I entered that merchant's stall they call the gift shop, and with but one mighty wave of my hand captured the rapt attention of the salesclerk. Unto that comely lass I bespoke these words:

"Hey, hi, excuse me. Do, um, do you guys sell obisidan? You know, like, the rock?"

"Uh... Yeah, over by the dinosaur models."

"Right... Yeah, okay, thanks."

"No problem. Nice kilt."

"Oh, thanks. You too- wait, sorry, my bad. Thanks."

And so, with the exchange of twelve dollars, my task was complete, and I rode home victorious.

Twas a day or two ago, but I found out recently that my uncle Reggie...actually isn't a Christian, he's a deist.  An honest, dyed-in-the-wool deist.  And, the best part?  He's surprisingly cool about the whole thing, about me being an atheist in a family that's pretty much all one flavor of Christian or another.  Says that religion's something that ought to be a personal deal, something you keep in your heart, in your mind, and in your home, but something you don't try to force upon others or wedge into any conversation you happen to come across.

I repeat, I HAVE FOUND ANOTHER SANE MAN IN MY FAMILY.  Know what that is?  A breath of fresh fucking air.

Every year since a couple years before I was born, my dad's side of the family has rented a cabin for one weekend every winter as a sort of family retreat. Seeing as my family's grown a bit since then, and many of us are now adults, there has been some discussion as to when myself, my brother and step siblings, and our cousins, will need to start paying for ourselves. So far, it seems like our parents are content to pay for us and, while I'm perfectly content with this (who doesn't like not paying for things?), I want to start doing something to help out with this affair, since it takes a lot of planning and coordination between everybody. So, I've gotten the aforementioned cousins and siblings to agree to take care of the traditional big meal that's usually relegated to one family, including purchase, prep, and serving. As of right now, everyone's on board, we've agreed on what to make (pizza from scratch), and we don't need too much help from our folks. Feels great to take the initiative and finally give back with something like this.

More like the past couple of days.  We went to St. Augustine again for our anniversary, and aside from the hotel undergoing construction (It's becoming a Best Western) and our favorite burger shop closing, we had a lot of fun.

Monday night, we went on another ghost walk.  I took a bunch of random pictures, figuring noting would appear in them.  The next day we saw something in them.  My wife, the firm believer in an afterlife, insists they're orbs.  I though, the skeptic, am still unconvinced. 

We also toured the tour, went to the Old Jail, Wax Museum (her favorite) and the downtown area.  Overall it was fun; the hotel was just annoying.

I like Harris Teeter myself but Wegman's is great as well.  Just the prices are a bit...pricey.

Harris Teeter is pretty expensive too, though. Neither are my family's first choice when grocery shopping.

I must say, I've a new found respect for the 360 port of Minecraft. Despite the lack of mods, being several versions out of date and a rather clumsy interface, playing split screen with my cousin was probably the most fun I've ever had playing Minecraft. Since finding a nearby ravine (which I dubbed The Stone Vagina) and an abandoned mine, our current project is to gather fuckloads of rails and lay a track going from our base to the bottom of said ravine. So far its coming along rather nicely, even if gold is really fucking hard to come by.

Sooo many good things among the bad ones, that I can barely count them (most of them happened yesterday, though, but I think it still counts because it just sank in!)

I did find in which hospital my husband is and the person at the call center was really kind and helpful! (he was called an ambulance when he kind of collapsed at work, but no one took time to inform me! I found out about it at night when I got from work and he was nowhere to be found and answered his phone kind of confused and not exactly knowing where he was... )

I was calculating that if his employer doesn't pay for his ambulances (he was transferred from er to better hospital) or his hospital stay we'd be paying around €500 from our pockets to cover the costs, but my mother (who knows everything <3) told me that my estimates were far off! Ambulance drives should be around €10/each and hospitalnights around €30-50/each (And no, he does not have private health insurance and so on...). So yay! Not too big dent in our budget!
Plus the nurses at the hospital where he was yesterday (I managed to get the in visitation time even though I couldn't get off work earlier!) were really super nice! (Nothing compared to that shitty deathtrapofaplace where he was first taken from work!)


It also is just "minor" issue in his vestibular system or something, so nothing life threatening!

And best news of all times! He gets to come home today. He just called that the doctor gave him permission to leave and I'm about to go and pick him up in few hours (they still need to write him off and so on...) so: yay!

*Is happy*

Then again, I suppose it would keep things from getting stagnant, ensures power creep isn't an issue and keeps things accessible to newbies. I suppose it all comes down to what you're looking for in a trading card game.

It works the same way with Magic: The gathering.

And let's face it, not only is this more profitable it is also the only viable way to keep any sort of balance in a card game that gets new sets every year.

Just my opinion, but I'd replace the situps with crunches/curls.  They tend to be MUCH better on your back.

It's cool.  Just a suggestion.  When I switched to crunches, I noticed my abs were getting a more thorough workout from top to bottom.  I've got a tricksy lower back though.

If you're required to run, you need to start running. The biking will help a little, but not much.

While I was driving home on I5, a chap in a black Lexus chose to weave around the UPS truck behind me and cut me off. Fortunately for all involved, I managed to pull off the complicated hybrid of braking and accelerating needed to prevent a three-car pileup, as he obviously had somewhere important to be, judging by the bird he flipped me as he drove off at seventy miles an hour. Not ten minutes later, I happened to pass by the selfsame Captain Lexus as he argued with a police officer on the side of the road.

I couldn't resist the temptation to toss him a smirk and jaunty two-fingered salute as I drove by. Justice is a wonderful thing.

I helped a lost dog out. This little reddish brown poodle followed me and my dog home from our afternoon walk, and it took a liking to me. After an hour of calling different places and whatnot, I ended up taking it down to my dog's vet office, for them to check it out. It had a flea collar on, but no microchip or tags, it wasn't neutered and about 2 years in age. They told me they were going to keep it over the weekend and hand it over to Animal Control. So when I get home, Animal Control was at my house finally, and I told them they could find it at the vet's office. I have a friend at work that's looking for a little poodle type dog, I'm telling her about this little guy. If no one claims him, I would love for her to have him. This little guy is such a sweetheart of a dog.

My parrot learned to keep a tempo to a song without me helping him.
Whenever he hears a song with a catchy beat, I click my tongue to the tempo. He learned to imitate the clicking sound somehow and copy my tempo. At first he would keep the tempo for 10 seconds and then gradually speed up and get lost, start over, then repeat. After a few tries he usually get frustrated and walks away (You can tell by his face and coos he's thinking "You know what? Fuck it! I can't do this shit").
Today I played a song without clicking for him and he did it by himself. He clicked to the beat exactly until he got tired.

The song was the theme song from "GTA 4: Ballad of Gay Tony" by the way.

I play Dragon Cave, which is basically my substitute for hoarding and becoming a crazy cat lady. My hobby is rescuing eggs that other players abandon. Most people consider it thankless work, but it's necessary for someone to do it because otherwise the main cave would not be able to drop new eggs. Also, there are some uncommon dragons that drop more frequently in the abandoned area than they do in the regular cave, so that's a plus too. Anyway, I picked up a random dragon and just found out that it is a 8th-generation Dorkface lineage dragon. Basically, that means that it can trace itself back to Midas Dorkface and Shallynaar, two famous dragons on the site. They are rather sought-after eggs, so why the fuck would anyone abandon one?

Bullshit aside I hope you both have a good time and make a connection and a better friend.

Awesome, brother!  Best advice I can give, and this is gonna sound really corny, is to just be you.  Don't try to put up a false front, because brother, lemme tell ya, it is far, far better to be disliked for who you are than to be loved for something you're not.  If that works out well, you'll know...once you get past the initial awkward "oh my god, I have a girlfriend" phase, you should find that talking to her and bein around 'er is as natural as breathing.

How do I know?  That's exactly how it is with me and my lady.  More'n 18 months on, and we can still sit around talking for hours on end.  We can even enjoy bein with one another without speaking a single word.

Just, keep this in mind, always: actions will always speak louder than words.

Now that you have her number, be sure to send her a picture of your penis. It shows confidence and a refreshing up-front attitude about both your assets and your intentions. Girls love it when you take such a step to remove a large amount of uncertainty about a relationship and thus a large potential for drama from the get-go.

I just made my first game mod. Specifically, I took the MiscMods mod for Europa Universalis 3, and tweaked the Shattered Europe scenario to create a Jewish OPM in Lisboa. And it WORKED! Long live the Republic of Sepharad!

My adviser informed me that I do not require any more electives:  the seminar that I took this semester was the last one I require as a graduate student (actually, I'm a little annoyed by this, as he told me that I was going to need another one after this when I met him in August, but whatever).

I finished my paper for my class today.  As such, with the exception of my thesis, this was the last paper that I will write as a Master's student.

My brother was in a car accident today, and the pictures look pretty terrifying, but nobody was hurt (despite the fact a semi was involved).  I'll count that as a good thing.

Mum came home a lot early from work, both because there were no patients in her area and because of the roads being a bit more...treacherous than normal, due to snow/ice.  Also, surprised me with pineapple Smirnoff Ice.  Normally, I don't drink, I can't stand liquor.  Also, whenever the fam gets liquor, they bet beer, which is fucking disgusting no matter what pretty name you dress it up with.  Seems ma noticed this, and decided to get me somethin, as well.  Might be a bit odd, her gettin me booze, but...well, the intent was genuinely good, and I'm glad she took me into consideration.

Oh, she also got a bottle of red muscadine wine for New Year's.  I quite like wine, especially -that- particular variety.

Since the family is broke, I have a belated party next weekend. 90% finished with a crochet 3DS carrying case- just have to block the other two pieces (not enough pins to do all three at once), attach a button, and sew the pieces together, all of which takes maybe 15 minutes after the blocking is done. Also fixed my copy of Portal 2- turns out one of the files wasn't verified.

So my next ink is going to be adding some more and finishing up one of my current tatts, but I found a sick design for one my next two full inks.  The first one I'm going to do is a silhoutte of a forest around my right wrist, but I stumbled across this one today.  I had gotten a new Alestorm album, and this was on the cd and the back inside paper as well.

Spoiler'd for size.

I'm partial to alpaca, cashmere, cotton, and bamboo yarns. The first two types are pretty pricey (especially if you shop those niche stores that carry the really nice brands), and I have too many animals to have that much nice string around, so I usually save that for gifts. Cotton and bamboo are general use stuff.

Functional cars: woo hoo!

So there's this girl that bullies everyone in our grade, and I mean everyone. But she's a complete coward. Like today, basically I stood up for someone from her. Later when I saw her I wanted to talk to her. Every time I tried to talk to her she ran away, this happened 3 times.
Lately I've been making jokes about her, and everyone laughs at them. I like to do this because she gets REALLY self conscious when I joke about her, like even with a really light one about her that no one should get offended by, she turns bright red and can only react with "Yeah?! well...you.. sh-SHUDDUP BITCH". It's actually quite hilarious.

I'm just really happy to discover that she's actually really pathetic, and now I can stand up to her, and get a laugh.

They aren't mean jokes though. Like we had a little project where we basically drew pictures. Everyone's of course didn't look stellar. We all started making fun of everyone's posters for fun. She just called my poster stupid and that she didn't want to look at it. So I made a joke about her poster. She drew a bull and the horns looked weird, so joked about them having bunny ears. Because she bullies me a lot she gets pissed whenever people laugh with me instead of her.
Then she got all pissed off and started acting like some kind of victim and then tried to bully me again(She calls me stupid, and makes fun of me because I take anti-depressants, and a bunch of other things). Of course I didn't really care because it basically came down to her stuttering.
This is the same girl that says everyday that she "Doesn't give a shit about what others say about" her. I mean, she makes fun of rape victims who don't scream or struggle because apparently being frozen in fear is "stupid". She's an absolute bitch and half of my friends are scared of her(the other half she ass kisses to, so they think she's an angel).

Sounds like someone who's just got no sense of humor, to me.  Seriously, if she can't take a run-of-the-mill schoolroom ribbing, well...tough.  I've known alpha bitches like that, think they're the cock of the walk, but the moment someone makes even a tiny, innocuous joke about them, the fucking world's ending or some shit.  It doesn't have to be something huge, you could just use an old, grade school "somethin on your nose" joke, and they'd fly off in a pissy little huff.

Now, I'm not saying ya outright mock 'er, or treat 'er like utter shit, but again, if she's a complete cunt, I can't really be arsed to care if she's so pathetic that she can't take an innocent joke.

I know we all can't be as nice as Jeb, but we should try. If she's that insecure about things, picking on her (even if she tacitly condones it by picking on others) isn't the answer. I was bullied in High School and at the time it does suck, but after you graduate, you'll think back and wonder "why did I even respond to such pettiness." I think it's best to just let it go if she tries to put you down. A simple "yeah, my picture sucks, eh" will quickly take the sting out of her insults. Likewise, when she picks on others just telling her it's not nice and being friendly towards those she bullies will make her look bad enough.

TL;DR, you're better than that, don't stoop to her level.

My views on the matter; if she can dish it out but can't take it, I say let her fucking have it. In my experience, the only thing cunts like that understand is being decisively put it their place. All this "turn the other cheek" nonsense sounds all high and mighty in theory, but in practice it just sends the message that they're free to walk all over people with no consequences whatsoever.

So yeah, don't hold back. Tear her as many new ones as you please.

Yeah I was kind of worried about that. None of it is outright bullying, usually whenever she goes on a bitch-fest about someone behind their back I'll call her out on it, and sometimes be sassy about it. I usually just stand up for people in a humorous way.
Like one day she was making fun of a trumpet player because he messed up(He's really sensitive about it, and he's attempted suicide twice. He's my friend and he thinks he's worthless except for his trumpet playing).  Well I pointed out that last week he had to replace her for almost half a song because she sucks so bad at playing. Her face was priceless.
Another time she was making fun of a girl for looking like "a twelve year old boy with too much eye-liner", which is total bullshit. The girl she was making fun of was absolutely gorgeous and really sweet too. Also she wears boy's clothes so it didn't make any sense to make fun of another girl for sometimes wearing tomboyish clothes. Well I said "Sounds like someone's jealous!" and she got really mad. Then I told her that she kinda looked like her so she shouldn't make fun of her. She just tried to come up with a lame insult and she was really embarrassed.
Title: Re: Anything Good Happen Today?
Post by: QueenofHearts on January 12, 2013, 11:51:13 am
I think the right answers to those would've been to assure the bullied person that they play/look fine, offer a bit of praise about them (you play fine, wish I could stay that in synch & I couldn't pull off that look) and then ask her why she has to be so mean to people. Of course, she'll say something mean to you, but just let it go.

I understand that she is asking for it by being rude, but it isn't worth it. My brother and sister-in-law are no different, they thrive off of high school drama and try to get everyone they can involved in their stupid games. It has lead to them outing me to around town when I don't take their sides in petty squabbling. I let it go. I don't speak to them nor do I consider them family, but I don't perpetuate their drama. And of course people talk and say nasty things, that's what people do. However, a lot of people see them for what they are the minute they (other people) tell me what's being said and hear me say "I know what they're saying, I'm not going to let it get to me" and leave it at that.

Finally, and I'm not trying to beat a dead horse, but the fact you brought up such a story in this thread implies that you took pride in what transpired. That's really what I think is most concerning to us.
Title: Re: Anything Good Happen Today?
Post by: Auggziliary on January 12, 2013, 12:01:07 pm
I guess the reason I'm proud is because I'm no longer scared of her like a lot of people are.
Ignoring what she says doesn't work though, because she makes those jokes to MY friends and then gets them to make the jokes too. If I don't react they wont stop. I've tried to tell her seriously to stop but she just laughs and tells me to STFU. Also I can't really ignore some of the stuff she does since it's interrupting me, like in class if I say anything to my friends she will tap me on the shoulder and tell me to STFU for no reason. None of my other friends notice this though since she kisses their asses.

An Ubermonster is a variant on the Monster energy drinks... they make it with an adapted German brewing process.  Non-alcoholic energy drink, comes in this amazing glass bottle that you need a bottle opener for... about $4 each, but it hits you like a truck.

I'm fond of the Lo-Carb variant, but the Zero Sugar new version they've got is oddly delicious.  Fruity!  Still has substantial kick, but no sugar.  And the can design is badass too.  The Ubermonsters have classical Gryphons on the label.

Hah, Keurig machines.

We've had one in the office, but just recently they pushed the cup prices up to 50 cents each. A few days later someone sends out an email to the entire company advertising 'free market' cups for 30 cents each(still more than the original 25). As of this morning we now have an offical policy that sending out emails to the entire company without permission from HR can result in disiplinary action or being fired.

Not really good, but funny shit from where I'm sitting.

Tea, caffine without needing hot water. Just sit the bags in and wait till you can't see through it anymore, then you've got something that'll perk your ass right up.

I love video game moments that make you feel badass.  I've been playing WoW again because one of my friends got me back into it, and we were doing a dungeon run.  Normally in a dungeon, I average about 25-50k dps, but was doing over 98k at one point that dungeon run.  I felt unstoppable.

Nice. Overperforming in any capacity feels great.

I should clarify though, for my part, that the statistics are one pentakill per 150 games, not one per team. Also, I was not the one to score this, and in fact died when my team got it.

I have an audition tomorrow.

I never actually carry a team when I play a carry.  Mostly cause my twitch reflexes, builds, what have you just don't give me a whole lot of damage output.  But!  I can set up kills for others to get so I'm good for something.

Ironbite-though when I get Fizz I get triple kills all the time.

I suppose if you sharpen the entire thing in one go, but if you only sharpen it when it's unusable, then it'll be a good enough pencil regardless of how many different sharpeners you use.

Also, OMG, OMG, OMG, I have this online buddy from Croatia, she's really into Star Wars, and her favorite character is Palpatine, and that's how we connected...I just found out she's a Pony fan too.

Waitaminute.  Isn't Clone Wars set between episodes 2 and 3?  And wasn't Maul cut in half during Episode I?  Is this like Anakin's little "flesh wound?"
He survived. Duh.

His story arc is about as dumb as you're probably assuming.

It's Star Wars. at this point, they'll make up any old shit if it'll make a quick buck, no matter how convoluted and asinine.

Worse than that, cut in half and fell into a plasma reactor. But yes, he did indeed survive thanks to his "pure hatred" keeping him alive. Apparently the reactor shaft he fell into was actually leading into a waste water tank, where he got shipped to another planet and used the Force to somehow fuse himself to a spider-like robotic body.

Yeah, they REALLY wanted to keep the only good character from Episode I alive.

To be honest I'm not that fond of the whole "Let's bring Maul back" stuff, but hey if Boba Fett can survive falling into the Sarlacc, then Maul can survive being cut in half, and surviving on hatred. Especially if it leads to Palpatine deciding to open up a can of whoop ass on him and his half brother... That being said Palpatine IS the Best Character of the whole saga...

See, Fett surviving the Sarlacc is believable because he was still in Mandalorian armor and was a walking armory when he fell in. Darth Maul? Not so much. Even his "pure hatred" would have hardly kept him from surviving a landing into water so far down the pit that you couldn't even see anything but black. The Force hasn't been demonstrated to have so much power, especially for a relative newbie, that it can save your body from being utterly pulverized AFTER being bisected at the waist.

Also the Sarlac pit is meant to slowly digest you over 100 of years of torment so - escape is kind of on the cards for a guy covered in armour with a jet pack.

As for maul surviving a 100 m odd fall with only half a body. Surely he would have bled to death. Even presuming the lightsaber instantly cauterised his wound the impact of the fall if not killing him would certainly have opened up the wounds causing him to bleed to death. Not to mention shock.

However I understand that even palpatine comes back but at least that is resurrection by way of a 'perfect' clone rather than being fucking unkillable.

Wait...why are you assuming Maul is a relative newbie when it comes to the Force?  Where, anywhere, did Lucas say this?

As I recall, he was the sith equivalent of a padawan (to Sidious, if memory serves), so it's pretty likely. That and his Mad Lightsaber Skillz suggests that pretty much all of his training has been in that, while his force powers were of secondary concern.

This is correct. According to Wookiepedia's sources with the dates, he was only 22 when he appeared on Naboo and got bisected, which is about the exact same age as Anakin (who was noted for being unusually strong in the Force). In The Wrath of Darth Maul, he was actually sent to an academy to learn assassination and was told not to use any of his Force abilities except for his heightened senses. Most of his training consisted of making him a deadly fighter and encouraging his rage and anger.

Either way, there's been very few times in canon that I can recall where a Jedi has been shown to use the Force to outright prevent massive physical trauma. The pit was so deep that you couldn't even see the bottom; even if it was nothing but deep water, the height was almost definitely above 100 meters (if I remember correctly, the height at which you're almost definitely suffering fatal injury). If the impact alone wasn't enough to kill him, it would have broken his arms and left him unable to swim, or knocked him unconscious so he could drown.

To make matters worse, all the sources I can find call the pit the melting pit. That doesn't bode well for the contents.

Guy in power armor loaded with close range weapons falling into a giant monster and blowing his way out? I can buy that. Guy getting sliced in half and falling into a pit hundreds and hundreds of meters deep and surviving long enough to get dumped on the junkyard of another planet hours later? Nah.

Palps does come back, he has a shitload of clones growing on Byss, but he comes back as more of a Caligula (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheCaligula) rather than the chessmaster, I know and love.

He really likes how well read I am (it's gotten to the point that when he asks a question, he only calls on me if nobody else knows the answer).

Also, if you have any interest in Middle Eastern history or politics, I highly recommend you watch this documentary (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwvXLKt-_3U) on the Six Day War.

So this technically happened yesterday, but I did not have computer access, but I finally got to play Soma San Diego. For those of you not familiar, Soma is the metal venue for San Diego county. I lived up the street for it throughout all of high school, and spent many weekends and untold amounts of money there with my best friends, moshing to my favorite bands of the time. It's one of the big things that expired me to become a musician, so being able to play there, especially when my band isn't even a year old yet, is a dream come true. The venue didn't charge us for tickets we didn't sell like most do, they had stage hands to help us get our gear on and off stage, and some of my best friends (As well as parents, grandmother, and first guitar teacher) were in the audience. And, after the show, this one guy that was up against the front rail the whole time pulled me aside to tell me what a great player I am and ask for pointers to get better. It was weird but incredibly flattering. To top it off, the room was filled with people, and they all loved our music. Last night was easily the best show I've ever played. I can die happy now.

ETA for today things: In an attempt to be more outwardly appreciative and affectionate towards my friends, I wrote three of them letters. One of them was sent to Texas, since I can't exactly get there myself, while I hand delivered the other two tonight, along with a rose for each (all three of them are women, if that wasn't obvious). I don't mean anything by the timing, but let's be honest, flowers are easy to get right now. Also, something in my head was insisting that this was the only rational response to... I still don't really know what made me do this, but the reactions thus far have been well worth it.

My younger sister's the president of the Japanese Cultural Society (read: anime club) at school. Two kids (one of whom is on probation) got into a fistfight and despite having a wrist brace, she waded in to break it up and got punched in the chest.

She not only stopped the fight, but she kicked both of them out of the club on the spot. And when one of the assholes had his sister text her to complain about "letting him get punched", Kelly called her and ranted about how he's not her responsibility, then hung up.

That's my girl!

Well, he's not only been unemployed for a long time, but he's now homeless and sleeping on a creepy amateur artist's filthy floor (in the apartment he shares with his entire family, including his 16-year-old sister and her baby) and refuses to even look for a job out of laziness and spite.

I suggested that he may have eaten a Lunchable recently.

I have gotten most of my wife's family into Doctor Who, and my 9 year old nephew is really into it.  For my birthday, he took money out of his piggy bank and bought me a 10th Doctor Sonic Screwdriver.  His giving it to me was cute enough, but then I opened it and put the batteries in it so that we could play with it.  I set it down for a second and my 3 year old daughter picked it up, pointed it at him, hit the button (for lights and sound) and says "Come along, Pond".  My wife and I cracked up (nephew hasn't made it that far in the episodes so he didn't catch the reference). 

My daughter has also been running around telling everyone "Don't blink!  You blink and you're boring!"  Apparently, she said it correctly to my mother-in-law and she told her to say boring instead of dead.  She's been doing it for a couple of weeks, and she said it to a lady looking at an angel picture at Hobby Lobby.

This happened yesterday, but I forgot to mention it. My granddad is offering work for me over the weekend. He just sold some property, and he needs someone to help him clear it out. Instead of hiring some strangers with a pickup truck and some chainsaws to help him, he decided it would be cheaper to hire me and my brother. It'll take all weekend. The downside? I have multiple tests to study for over the weekend, and I have to work on part of a project. I can't afford to not do the project either because I'm already ten points behind for not turning in the first part. Either way, I'm gonna spend my weekend like a winner, and that makes me feel pretty good. The only difference is that if I spend it pruning trees and clearing out garbage with my granddad, I'll get paid, but if I make another 100 on my biology test, my chances of getting a damn good job in the future and getting paid like a total boss go up.

My seniors graduated today.  While I really am sad to see them go, I know that they're all growing up and they all will work hard to have lovely futures.
Students asking me to sign their year books, though, really was bittersweet.

Similar thing just happened to me today. My biology test was pushed to Wednesday, so now I have the opportunity to get some work done on the weekend and hopefully get some money. I don't have a stable job, but I love doing oddjobs like that.

Oh, no, I'm not a waitress, I'm a pet-sitter and dog-walker. People rarely ever tip me (or any other pet caretaker) because I don't think most people are aware it's a tipping situation. I don't get paid very much so dropping a $20 my way can make a big difference, especially considering the driving involved and needing to fuel up. I almost never get tips except at Giftmas (which are, admittedly, usually pretty decent tips--plus one of my regular clients gave me a sweet travel mug with pawprints on it and a big box of assorted teas), but about half the time when I'm sitting someone's pets for several days or longer while they're away, I'll get a tip. I was hoping I'd get one this time but I didn't think it'd be THAT much! (I have to be here until Tuesday.)

This is especially great for me since my car died permanently dead and I have to save up to buy a new car. In the meantime my work opportunities are severely limited. So that $60 was a great boon. ^_^

I'm finally moving on my masters thesis.  After months of being paralyzed with fear at the sheer size of the project, I finally found the information I need to put together my dataset.  I made more progress this week than in the last 9 months combined.

The best part is that the criteria I set leaves me with only 11 states to examine over a 30-year period, meaning that I have 330 data points for each of my variables (probably 20 or so).  I originally intended to use about 30 states, meaning that I would have to enter 900 pieces of information for every single variable that I used.

Hooooooooooo, man my day was pretty great.

Got up at around 8, covered in sweat and drool (result of me drinking caffeine before bed). Immediately took a shower and took off with my brother in the truck. I was late, but my grandma still made me breakfast and we took our sweet time before getting to work. So here's what's happening. My grandfather sold some land to a friend of his, and he plans on building on that property (he says it's gonna be a lab for water purification, but my dad is convinced it's gonna be a meth lab). So the area is practically a jungle, infested with mesquite trees and garbage is thrown carelessly around. My granddad gave me a single rusty hacksaw and a wheelbarrow and said, "get to work." My brother was supposed to be helping, but all he really did was take some measurements and hold wood for me while cracking dick jokes. So since it was a relatively young tree, I took that hacksaw, and got to work. Had the whole thing down by lunchtime. Spent the rest of the day chopping it all up into firewood. I had to apologize to the Earth as soon as I was done, but man, I feel so good knowing I had it in me to do all that. Going back tomorrow to continue clearing the area out.

Even if it's minimum wage or just a bit more, I'll save an assload in commuting costs, so if I can swing full-time hours, I'll probably actually come out ahead.

For a second I thought you were talking about getting a D in Hebrew class and I was like, "Wait, I thought that would be a bad thing!"

Then I realized that you were talking about D10 die. Do you have any pictures?

Spoilered because every image of it is apparently ungodly massive.

So you can now play Jewish DnD. So what's you're favourite class? I usually play a lawyer, but there's something to be said for an investment banker if you get the build right.

I prefer Media Dominator myself.

Yeah, but he's a freshman in college right now while I'm in high school. I meant that I was so stressed/depressed that I couldn't talk to people.

Poetic lost her phone today.  The reason this is good is because we were able to get her a phone with a prepaid plan and no contract.  Now, her old phone was on her mom's account.  I think that means that it can be removed without prematurely ending any contracts.

Oh, and we grew closer as I was there to help calm her down from a panicked state and guide her through a contingency plan.  Not only that, but I got to exercise some leadership muscle. :)

Some pornstar named "Lisa Ann" seems to be really popular worldwide.
Finland's top two results are "mature" and "granny." Apparently Finns have a thing for old people?
For a Bible Belt State, Kentucky's got a suspicious "free gay porn" entry as #1.
As mentioned before, South America really loves its gay porn. Especially Venezuela, Peru, and Chile.
Lebanon is really strange, there's a lot of trans/futa porn along with with "big legs (gay)," "hairy arab," and most bizarrely "shit orgy."
Kazakhstan likes squirting and gay Russians.
For a hardcore Muslim country, Pakistan likes a lot of gay porn.
South Africa is really gay, and has "biggest orgy" and "poop" on the list too.
Kenya likes gay monster cocks, old men, anal, and fake gay vaginas.
Libya likes gay daddies of various kinds and "american anal sluts".
Iceland likes some really weird gay sex. With teenage Native Americans, somehow.
Eastern Europe is just plain bizarre. Mother-son incest popular in Hungary and Romania, top result for Czech Republic involves fisting and #6 is "castrated shemale", etc.

He just turned red and everyone said "OOOooooh" since that's all teens do when emotionally aroused.

Not so much 'good' as just plain funny.

I was browsing a site making fun of terrible bad cosplays and Boything was watching and I was showing him some of the worst. Scrolling past a picture of an otherwise decent cosplay ruined by an incredibly shitty wig, Boything says, 'HEY, WAIT, BACK UP! GO BACK TO THAT ONE!'

He sat staring at it and pointed stuff out--'That's her face, her nose, how she does her eye makeup. That's definitely a cosplay she wanted to do and she's crazy about Death Note. And that's DEFINITELY her room. And she would always spend a shit-load of money on her cosplays and then get the cheapest wigs she could.'

So who is this mystery lady?

His ex-girlfriend.

I think this is funnier than I should, not least because this girl HATED ME on sight when we met just because I was hanging out with him. We weren't even dating. I didn't even know his last name at the time. I didn't even know his REAL name at the time. THe site doesn't identify any of the bad cosplayers, so it's not like anybody browsing it would know who it was unless, like Boything, they actually knew her.

It also sorta answers the question of I wonder what happens if someone finds their own picture or a picture of someone they know on one of these sites? Well, apparently, THAT happens.

So I went into this violin shop today, looking to see if they had any positions I could offer a friend of mine (if she doesn't get a job by August she gets deported, and it has to be related to her degree, so music). Turns out, they don't, but I wound up talking with the salesperson about music for over an hour. Everything from out preferences in style, dislike of hiphop, favorite shows/performances, the music industry, etc. I don't know how that happened. Anyways, before I go, he lets me try out a violin. First time I've played an instrument, insofar as the short explanation of proper posture and bow use is considered such, and it was amazing. He said I caught on quickly, and offered me a sweet deal if I decide to buy one in the future, as well as hooking me up with some teachers.

I love the days where I don't plan my adventures.
