Just a window box? Poor city slicker....:)

Very tiny things?

pah! My plants grow quite wonderfully, thank you very much! And I don't have to worry about them taking over the yard or spreading to places they aren't wanted!

Today I picked up...

Hidecote Lavender x1
Mojito mint x1
Thyme x1
Cilantro x1
Italian parsley x1

They will stay in their mini things for a week until I get paid and then into the window box they go.

I don't get having 1d3 weapon damage, there is no three sided dice! "Just ignore the four" they say. Four is the best number on a four sided dice, do you know how frustrating it can be to roll four after four after four, and then they say "Oh, well, that's a three" It's clearly a four!

Just make a d3.

I bought some dice with removable faces. Take a d6 and number it 1 to 3 twice.

dice...with removable faces?!?!

Yesterday afternoon was an epic bit of hilarity that totally distracted me from work: Impus Minor decided he was going to start over in Dragon Age: Origins and play it over again.

Except...
(1) He was going to be the ugliest possible character he could create. He and Impus Major spent a good 45 minutes creating this bug-eyed, sunken-cheeked freak of nature who would be at home in only the lowliest of circus shows.

(2) He was going to choose the single-most-obnoxious response he possibly could. Every. Single. Time.

I have to say, Bioware did a magnificent job with the heuristic algorithms with such behavior, with quotes like (to the woman he just rescued): "Oh, you're still alive? Does that mean I still have to marry you?" or (exchanging pleasantries with the king): "I killed the earl for raping my cousin." Now THAT'S an ice breaker!

His responses are getting more and more vile. It's a joy to watch...

I like this kid!

Cannot wait for origins to be backwards compatible.

There's probably a face-swap mod for the game, so he's modded the enemies' faces with JPGs of ABrown, Whedon, or any number of American voiceover artists who dub anime.

But... Mass Effect is FPS. How can anyone not like Mass Effect?

mass effect has fps in it, but it is not an fps. It is mass effect.

Disagree with that... Only 11-13 episodes and ** spoiler omitted **

HOnestly there was a lot I liked about the show, and a lot I did not. Allura I found little to no redeeming qualities about.

A true reboot would have made her a strong confident ruler who was a kick-butt pilot of the blue lion and a solid member of the team...

Instead we get an ** spoiler omitted **

I think Voltron Force did a better update to Allura then Legendary defender did.

wow.

Different strokes for different folks. Still, I can't help but wonder if you actually watched the show or read a synopsis. That's a rather stilted version of events.

Nope. I watched it all the way through. Like I said, a lot of things I liked about it, and a lot I didn't. I'll probably watch it at least a second time... probably went through Voltron force about 3-4 times. Again, stuff I liked and stuff I didn't with that one too. I really wish they would have ALL the voltron shows on Netflix at the same time... it really put me in the mood to watch some more. (never DID get all the way through 3rd Dimension...)

But to claim she was awesome and didn't need saving... was not at all what I watched.

you liked voltron force.

I can't take your opinion seriously.

I have yet to find a Japanese cartoon show I like more than, or as much as, Berserk. I wish they would continue that one. I know it is a comic book too, but I want to see it animated. Yes I am also familiar with the movies. One Punch Man is a close second though, with Desert Punk coming in third. Sure there is some good stuff but so very very much junk. I heard a friend rave about A Certain Scientific Railgun but I could not even make it ten minutes through the first episode. It got a bit too creepy with the middle school shower. I am told they smarten up, but they lost me. Can anyone suggest a good one that isn't harem based, creeping the lines into inappropriate kid stuff, overly goofball, or the one piece problem of "Ok I get it. Can we get to the point already please and have the pirates do piracy? Too much filler."

hm. Sounds like you need to go old school.

Check out guyver if you can, or black lagoon or basilisk.

I actually kind of like it.

I like it too. It's great drama, and also a great demonstration of why NG is the goodest good. A NG hero doesn't have to compromise the protection of innocents with honor.

"I promised I'd let you go, but that was before I knew you were a scum-of-the-earth villain. So that's why I killed you immediately and without hesitation, before setting you loose on who-knows-how-many innocents." Much less dramatic than your player's solution, but also much Gooder. ;)

that's...anti climactic.

I was rather disappointed that my "determined to be a good paladin but unclear on the concept" 15-year-old player finally realized that he'd promised to release a Chaotic Evil demon-worshipping cleric as soon as he was done exploring the parts of the city she once ruled. (I was going to write "exploring her conquered regions", but on FaWtL that's just asking for trouble.)

The expressions on his face as he worked it all out were priceless. "If I let her go, then I've unleashed a demon-worshipping cleric on the world, and Iomedae will hate me, and I'll fall. If I don't release her, then Iomedae, as a goddess of honor, will hate me, and I'll fall..."

This is the point where I point out that Inquisition version of approval system worked differently and you weren't able to affect them with gifts from what I remember :P

And it sure is more immersive than everyone treating you like a hero in your party even if you are renegade of uber murder dick levels.

(seriously though, Inquisition version of approval system is actually pretty good. You don't even see the numbers, but you see that everyone has opinion on your choices)

At Doomkitten: I'm pretty sure they were talking about Origins' version of the system. Though I might be wrong, I can't really understand what they are talking about if they did mean the Inquisition version.

still hate it- inquisition or origins.

Well, SOMEONE (was it you or Sissyl?) said, "Never risk drinking again." Now I fully understand the depth of that statement. So it's just suffering through the whole, "I'm hungry and I want a drink" all over again.

Looks like it's going to be a LOOONG summer.

Ah, well, Disneyland in just over a week, and we're still on budget!

it's scary, but...yeah. you can never drink again outside of odouls and a handful of non alcoholic wines and champagnes. It is a significant lifestyle change that you occasionally have to defend a bit vigorously i.e. get nasty with some folks.

The American consumer is an amazing, depressing animal.

Back in the late 1980's, our local Dunkin Donuts closed down, mainly because their food was crap, and there were donut shops down the street in either direction that were miles better. I have consistently found Dunkin Donuts to be at the bottom of the barrel when it comes to the wondrous, wonderful pastries.

But corporate has mandated a return to the California market, and a Dunkin Donuts has opened in Walnut Creek, just over the hills from us. (They claim to be part of the Bay Area because they're in a county that touches the Bay, but my feeling is that if no part of your city nor even a neighboring city touches the water, you aren't part of the Bay Area, but that's another tirade.)

So... people are lining up around the block. To get crappy, sub-par donuts. Because it's NEW.

I am saddened more than I care to admit by this.

it's not 198x anymore. And new more intrigues than anything else. Cleaving to the opinions of those who came before is not something anyone will confess to doing outside of a handful of areas.

This is, exactly, why I was unwilling to display my full irritability at the young woman behind the counter of the gas station. She was in the wrong for making us wait when she knew customers were piling up, but she could have been under conflicting orders, and she certainly wasn't at fault for not being able to tell me what was on the card.

Customer service has a hard time. I try not to make it harder.

My money is on conflicting orders. They are a huge problem on the first job, and an annoyance on the third.

Words of Wisdom: don't use a gift card to pay at the pump. When you pay at the pump the system places a hold against the card equal to the maximum amount that store expects to be charged, before you pump a single drop. If the maximum amount they try to place a hold on is more than the card is worth you get the default message "see the attendant for help" which isn't helpful if the attendant is just some kid who really has no answers.

Domains: Law, Good,

Okay, this one's real tricky, I'm quite sleep-deprived, and she's very similar to the Azata Trio. Anyone that wants to flesh her out, be my guest.

Freehold has been summoned.

Ophelia, Goddess of Tragedy
The Eternal Tear
Domains: Law, Good, Water, Madness, Death, Charm
Alignment: Lawful Good
Favored Weapon: Sling(bow and arrow only when used by zen archer monks)
Holy Symbol: A blue, red or white teardrop, rarely all three with the points facing each other
Portfolio: Tragedy, unluck, death via misadventure, madness, succor

Robed in the strictures of Law and Good to keep herself from succumbing to the sorrow-induced madness that has gripped her, Ophelia- so named for a character in a play that an insane scribe dedicated to her worship wrote after it became known that hearing her true name too times drove listeners mad- is an ancient goddess that has traveled throughout several realities. In modern times she exists as a goddess of succor, offering a sturdy shoulder for those who have suffered the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune once too often. Her priests often run sanitariums and hospitals, and are rarely seen as adventurers, for only the most desperate party would turn to a priest of The Eternal Teardrop for divine magical support. Blue, red and white are her sacred colors, for those of tears, blood, and...other...humors that often surround tragic events. Her sacred weapon is the sling, although a monastery dedicated to her worship is known for their zen archery. Her holy symbol is a teardrop of one of her sacred colors. For some reason, colorful koi fish are sacred animals to the faith.
