Meh, a pair of friends and co-players (man and women) were renting a room, but their landlord give them their monthly notice after learning that she is active in local LGBT community... At the moment worst case scenario is, if they don't find anything suitable quickly enough, that they will move in to be my roommates flatmates. We'll have to speak about early details tomorrow before session.

This dreads my inner slightly apathetic nervous introvert loner, though.

Is this even legal?

Aren't there laws that they can't kick people out for reasons like that?

Depends where they are. Dresk isn't in the US, IIRC, but even here sexual orientation is only protected on a state (or sometimes local) level. This would be perfectly legal in many places, even if no excuse was used and they were told it was because of their LGBTQ connections.

They were given their monthly notice, which I assume matches the terms of the contract.

Precisely. He's in Poland, but this could just as easily happen in the US.

A quick Internet search indicates only 15 US states have statutes against housing discrimination based on sexual orientation (plus a fair number of municipalities). And this case isn't even sexual orientation, but political belief, which is even less likely to be protected.

My co-player friends (D&D 3.5 GM and his girlfriend, both are playing in my Pathfinder game) just got their room lease terminated when the owner learned that she is active in local LGBT community. They have time until 1st of July to move out...

Unless they find something else soon I might end taking them in as roommates. While taking roommates contributing to the covering costs of my flat is a reasonable step that i should taken ages ago, my introvert loner soul is cringing in anticipation of having to share living space with someone else than my parents. I'll be going to see them tomorrow earlier before the session and discuss this.

I'm glad you are having your friends over.
We have yet to see if it comes to this, and how well it will work. Will I be feed up with sharing living space with someone else first, or will they be upset with my introvert with extra serving of apathy no-life style...

As long as they know what you need from the beginning, it should be okay. Make sure you have your private space and they know that sometimes you will go there to be alone and it is nothing against them.

If they are a couple, they will probably appreciate their own alone time as well.

Great news! I also heard that it is the first time same sex marriage has been made legal in a country via popular referendum.

Get injured and then poorer as a result. Just plain nasty system.

Yes and no. Typically when you have an insurance deductible like this, you also typically contribute to a Health Savings Account (HSA) so you have a pool of money to pay those expenses. I have enough in there to cover it; it's just a bummer watching the balance drop so precipitously.

Biggest regret: don't unbuckle your seat belt to retrieve your license until the officer observes you are wearing it.

Still fighting it, though. I think I have a good case.

So angry right now.

the f#$$? You always wear a seat belt. I have seen you wear one while driving 100% of the time. How much is the ticket?

Always! Every time I get in the car!

Okay, so I Googled it, and it's only $50, but it could affect my insurance rates (probably not for one violation, but I don't want to go down that road).

Someone needed to meet his quota of tickets... Ugh. Is that one of the "contesting the ticket costs more than the ticket itself" plus "the court will consider law enforcement statement to be sole proof needed to uphold the ticket"?

For question A, I don't know the fine, but I'm on salary, so I could go to court without losing wages. I'm not pleading guilty to something I didn't do, even if the fine isn't that high.

To the second question, depends on the judge. At least if I state my piece, if the judge fines me anyway, I will know I fought it and didn't admit to something I didn't do.

Well, I'll be getting at least a little bit of exercise this summer.
Just logged in to tell my online peeps that I auditioned for a musical this summer. 'The Addams Family'. Didn't really expect to get anything. Was really hoping my daughter would get the part of 'Wednesday'.

Yeah, I got the part of Gomez. :/

NOW to figure out how to re-arrange my work schedule so that I can actually make rehearsals. Cuz there is NO way I am turning this part down! :)

With my skills, I could maybe get the part of the hand in the box

Probably not all it's cracked up to be. I had to spend an entire scene stuffed in a trunk as Signor Pirelli in Sweeney Todd. It got claustrophobic.

Oh who am I kidding - Sweeney Todd was awesome. I got to die a horrific death every night!

Also, my mom got us a gas grill for our birthdays (mine is the 27th) and I went with her to pick it up.

The guy at the store thought I was some kind of monster for letting my mom lift things while I did not... I felt like I had to display my injuries so he wouldn't judge me.

Anyway..... We have a gas grill!

But, uh, knowing nothing about John's preferences, I'll go with... uh... um... bacon? Yeah. Bacon. That can never go wrong as a gift... >.>

First things first, I made bacon yesterday.

I can manage a lot with my hand as it is, especially since it is not my dominant hand. The real limitation on handmade gifts is going to be time. The last several days were a washout since I was entertaining family, so now I am scrambling.

I still hate the Mako with a passion though.

And now there is no evidence I don't, I mean we don't.

also, as a cyclist, I face serious injury on an almost daily basis. I also watch/view/read a lot of porn. I am working on an app that will delete your browsing history the moment you have to call 911.

If something happens to me, and someone checks my browser history, they are going to find a goodly amount of gay porn. And I don't worry about that, since no one will be shocked to find out that CH likes to watch hot men having sex...

Interesting. How would you characterize your experience of that music? What draws you to it?

I have enough musical education that I appreciate the avant-garde, but I don't really feel a strong pull toward it.

Wow. I can't believe my 0-level spell actually succeeded in giving the Wraith a penalty.

Also, it appears the aspergillum can be filled with a standard action. Are you proficient with maces?

Edit: On reading the item description, it only deals 1 point of holy water damage per hit. I think you are better off pouring the holy water on it as a melee touch attack for 2d4 points of damage.

I really think we'll still have serious racial issues long after the worst of the LGBTQ problems are only a memory.

I think this is quite true. The reason I think this is the case is that LGBT people come from all walks of life - most people are finding out that somewhere along the line a family member, coworker, friend, or neighbor identifies somewhere in the LGBTQ alphabet. On the other hand, it will be easier for people to continue identifying other races and ethnicities as "the other".

Time will tell.

aeglos, did I mention I keep hearing commercials for that restaurant you told me about?

no, you haven't

is haven't a word? and the correct one ?

"Haven't" is certainly a word, and the response is valid.

If you really wanted to quibble about English usage, you might instead say "No, you didn't." Generally, you would phrase your response to match the helper verb used in the question. Since AZ said, "Did I mention", you would match his usage by saying "No you didn't." On the other hand, if he had said, "Have I mentioned", you would use "No you haven't."

But nobody would ever call you out on something so silly. It's just a tip if you want to sound more professorial :)
