All right - that's enough cranky from me.

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

And it is lily white.

Osirion

But, again, I'm kind of an a%&!~+% that way. If people don't like it, they can kiss my lily white ass.

Not to mention that whole sexist pig thing I've got going for me - with a few wonderful exceptions (especially from Planet Stories) I've never found many women who can write stories I find interesting.

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

But I'm older and crankier these days, and don't have as much time to read as I used to.

I've enjoyed the Dave Gross books, and the Tim Pratt stuff, and Sutter's first book (haven't gotten around to the second one yet). And that one by Hugh Matthews was ok. I've got the Byers book but haven't read it yet.

The rest? Meh.

For a fraction of a second I considered, on that fateful day, starting to subscribe to the Pathfinder Tales novels, but then I remembered that there's a reason I don't already have one and don't buy all the books they put out - because I find some of the writers they get to be....less than impressive.

I've come to a decision. Not sure why it popped in my head this morning, but there it was. When Paizo bloats the initial version of the Pathfinder rules to the point where they have to move forward with Pathfinder 2.0 (or whatever), is when I'll be cancelling my AP subscription and counting myself done with RPGs.

I don't really play anymore as is, so it wouldn't be a stretch for me.

Was woken up at 0400 today by a noise from upstairs. Quickly realized it was the boy moving the step stool in his bathroom out of the way so he could close the door. Then we heard him close every other door upstairs in succession. Finally, he came downstairs and I found him sitting on the sofa.

I hear people talkin' bad,
About the way we have to live here in this country,
Harpin' on the wars we fight,
An' gripin' 'bout the way things oughta be.
An' I don't mind 'em switchin' sides,
An' standin' up for things they believe in.
When they're runnin' down my country, man,
They're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

Yeah, walkin' on the fightin' side of me.
Runnin' down the way of life,
Our fightin' men have fought and died to keep.
If you don't love it, leave it:
Let this song I'm singin' be a warnin'.
If you're runnin' down my country, man,
You're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

I read about some squirrely guy,
Who claims, he just don't believe in fightin'.
An' I wonder just how long,
The rest of us can count on bein' free.
They love our milk an' honey,
But they preach about some other way of livin'.
When they're runnin' down my country, hoss,
They're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

Yeah, walkin' on the fightin' side of me.
Runnin' down the way of life,
Our fightin' men have fought and died to keep.
If you don't love it, leave it:
Let this song I'm singin' be a warnin'.

You're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

I'm originally from Louisiana. When I was a much younger man is when Abita was first making it big. But I wasn't introduced to the Strawberry Harvest Lager until after I moved to Philly and came home for an early summer visit. It's one of their once a year beers - limited availability.

After that, I would get a few cases every year during the less than a month timeframe it was available in Philly. Most of the other staple Abita beers were always available (Turbo Dog, Amber).

Now I live it Texas. The Abita specials have a longer availability time.

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Ah well. Time to do stuff.

Osirion

Plus, I'm not sure I could get one (for a reasonable price) here in the states.

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Don't think wife would go for it, though.

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I really want a bidet.

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Wife woke me up this morning as she was getting out of bed to go to the bathroom. I thought to myself "if it's close to my alarm going off, I can turn it off now and get going a few minutes early".

Then my alarm went off.

I've heard people say about babies getting mobile "oh, now it gets interesting/crazy/hectic". That's load of horse s!@#! Life gets more of that as soon as baby starts growing. It's just the style of interesting/crazy/hectic that changes.

Osirion

Also, baby girl crawled about 4 feet yesterday.

And my lead designer got into another argument with the weaselly little bastard who's trying to replace him. I keep telling him to try and keep his temper, that the dudes trying to push his buttons, but he won't listen.

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Interesting that the phone autocorrected it to "hospice hell".......

Osirion

And, some semi-good news on the "my dad" front - my mom is going to get hospice help with bathing him and such. Plus his medicines and some other necessary supplies. And they brought over a "just in case" wheel chair.

Medicaids going to cover it all, which really surprised me. But it's gonna really help mom, so that's all I really care about.

Osirion

Plus, there was a dentist visit. Afterwards, there was much rejoicing.

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

No.....seriously!

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Busy day yesterday, but lots accomplished.

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

"Burn, baby burn! Disco inferno!"

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Or at least pretend to.

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Ah well, time to get busy.

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

The boy showed up in our room at 0430.

The wife has a job interview with a company called Weatherford today. Yesterday she had a very positive phone interview with someone from Chevron. That set up another interview for next week - one she is very excited about.

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I often fail miserably.

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

One cup of coffee down. Not sure how many I'll have today. I've been trying to keep myself to no more than three cups a day.

Oh yeah, my baby girl did a bit of crawling yesterday.

Osirion

Yesterday was a co-worker's birthday. I paid for his lunch. Huzzah for me. Plus - fried shrimp basket. Mmmmmm.....

Kim Basinger once called Mickey Rourke "The Human Ashtray".

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

James,

If I recall correctly, today is the release for the new Godzilla on DVD/Bluray/etc.

Will you own it before you even get to work?

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

But, hey! There's coffee! And no meetings scheduled for today. So I've got that going for me.

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Also, my shoulder is still hurting.

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I watched one more episode of Agents of SHIELD then I should have last night. Didn't go to be until a little after 11 pm, and baby girl woke us up at 2 am. Was on and off awake for the next 2+ hours, then got up at 5 to get ready for work.

Gonna be a looong day.

Thank you for feeding us hungry yard rodents. When the Nuttening comes, we'll acorn you last.

Actually, between my two bird feeders, I've had so many small birds hanging in my backyard a local hawk has decided it's a fast food joint.

Yes, I have become a grilling fiend.

Bratwurst !!!!

Yesterday, it ended up being pre-seasoned chicken breasts. Big ones - like from the Dolly Parton of chickens.

Tonight it was hot Italian sausage, peppers, onions, and zucchini.

I am in the process myself, I need 4 (two up two down)

Thankfully, we only need one so far, at the top of the stairs. That's all we ever had for Charlie in Philly.

But I had to get this one installed today because the wife was niece sitting, and little Pie is only 2-1/2 or so. She can easily get up the stairs, but not down them.

Osirion

There's no such thing as too late to be enjoying life and the pleasures it brings you! Glad you enjoy these little rays of affirmative sunshine.

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I believe grilled hot Italian sausage, peppers, and onions make an awesome dinner.

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

And the boy has been excitedly speaking of Halloween lately. He's even got ideas of what he wants to be, and it's been consistently a comic book hero.

I have done something right!

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

On the bright side, I was in Walgreens last night picking up some laundry soap. When I walked through their Halloween section, I found a non-foam headstone - the solid, somewhat heavy kind I prefer. So that's my first addition to the decorations for this year. I'll probably also picked up a light or two for my garden area.

Osirion

Also, I really need to find an orthopedic specialist.

Osirion

Grocery shopping accomplished with no problems. Picked up some pre-seasoned chicken and grilled it up for dinner last night.
