While I was in Seattle for my business meetings, one of my vendors told me they have an opening in Portland and have been unable to fill it for several months due to lack of a qualified candidate with adequate pension and investment experience. They basically said its mine if I want it and it pays well. But now is not a good time for us to move anywhere.

Also, John loves the place.

I'd say "please don't go" but I need an excuse to travel.

Seriously I wore shorts and a Hawaiian shirt to my own wedding :-)

What wore your wife?
A wedding gown, ridiculously nice too, this high end wedding store closed and donated all their unsold inventory to the thrift store where I worked and my super awesome boss sold it to my wife for 10 bucks, my dad officiated and found some canned old world Welsh ceremony, my wife's sister in law was a professional cake decorator so she did that for free and the bouquet was wild flowers we spent the morning picking on the side of the road, all in all we spent 100 bucks tops and had an awesome honeymoon :-)
Can you plan my wedding?

CH,

how are wedding preparation going?

Do you have a Date?
A Location?
Small or Big ?

Late 2016. Nothing more specific than that.

We wanted winter and indoors, but having it outdoors in the fall may be more cost-effective. And while we like the idea of a small wedding, there are a lot of people who want to come. When that many people want to celebrate with you, it seems like it would be a shame to exclude them. Guest list likely over 100. Hence the need to control costs and probably have it outside.

A lot of the indoor venues around here charge $120 or more per person for the space plus food. *faints*

Good news! It seems the vision in my eye is stable now and while it treats certain colors slightly weirdly it is here to stay!

Interesting thing happened when I thought I might go perma blind, I've been using my imagination alot more and having a really fun time of it, in addition my wife told me she will read and write for me in my PBPs if I lose my eyesight so I have been investing a lot of time and energy into them and started a few new ones I have always wanted to run online.

Knowing that I can still play them even if I do lose my sight because of my wife's help has been a great comfort and joy to me.

wonderful news! This must be celebrated!

It's funny- this whole "pull your weight!" stuff never comes up in my game or any game I have been in. Usually characters that suck on their own merits die on their own merits.

Lisa- it's 4:00 pm...has someone killed aroden yet?

Erik- hey, I killed him yesterday.

Crystal- Did not! I killed him when I ran him over with my car this morning! He was making a break for it because SOMEONE didn't lock up properly last night!

Cosmo- mutter mutter

Liz- waitaminute...I'm pretty sure I shotgunned him before lunch.

Lisa- Crap. Is he resurrecting himself multiple times in a day again?

Man, this FaWtL game is the worst. It's nothing but text! Did NOONE playtest this?!?!! And my god, the characters are so freaking broken it's not funny! You just write what you're doing and all the other characters respond -taking their sweet time I might add! No srsly, a high end gaming rig and a rusting old tablet had THE SAME RESPONSE TIME! The staff needs to get on this and make some serous improvements!

A friend of mine in the kingmaker game was interested as is another in the Darklight Sisterhood game. I don't think the latter game is going to go for it due to claustrophobia among several players, but the kingmaker group might.

In today's Darklight Sisterhood game, I had the party face the charibdys, a dreaded creature of the deep. I thought it would be an amazing combat as the party would avoid being knocked overboard and do limited damage with it via spells and distance attacks. Truly, a battle for the ages.

They ate it.

THEY F!$#ING ATE IT.

The spellcasters INSISTED on using flame and lightning attacks against it, and forbade the fighters from wounding it, lest they spoil the meat. The sorceress(my wife)had a lobster bib on halfway through the combat. Spell after spell went into this thing, which eventually expired after a flame strike(holy damage) took it out.

They picked out the treasure from its bits and pieces while they cooked it, enjoying the music from a golden music box they plucked from its possessions as they stuffed the body with garlic and other spices.

This Saturday will forever be known as Beard Disaster Day, when I went to the barber's for a haircut and (foolishly) asked him to tidy up my beard. He took 'tidy up' to mean 'pass clippers over at randown, gouging out great chunks here and there so it looked like cremated hill giant's pubes', which meant I had to attempt to repair it later using PFPL's Ladyshave -

don't try this at home, kids.

- which worked as well as might be expected.

Now it is just a vague, anaemic fuzz. I am slightly traumatised, even if PFPL does think it looks much nicer, but fear not! With the help of Mighty Pogonos, Lord of the Hidden Chin, it shall rise again in all its unkempt glory! Hail Pogonos! Io! Io! Io!

Nicely done. :D

I've been stuck with GMs like this, it isn't fun.

Me-Well, you have succeeded in killing my character yet again with your unlimited resources, congratulations. My character is now FIVE levels lower than the rest of the party. That will teach me to try and fight things to gain levels, silly me.

GM-Hah hah, yeah, guess you better try harder huh?

Me-Actually I was thinking that this level disparity is a bit much, it wouldn't really make sense for my level 2 Sorcerer to stay with a party like this, their COHORTS are three levels higher than me. I'd like to make a new character please.

GM-Okay, but since you are changing characters by choice, and not because you are unable to raise your existing one, you lose a level. So feel free to roll a level 1 character of your choosing.

Me-*door slams, sound of car starting*

So today begins with mini golf, followed by laser tag. I'll probably win at mini golf again for the simple reason that all of the obstacles are designed with right handed players in mind and playing left handed makes the whole course easier. :)

No motorcycles unless you get lessons from a motorcycle instructor such as my uncle. He's very serious about motorcycle safety.

Im telling you, if he hadn't been wearing gloves and a helmet that day some idiot backed into both lanes on a fast road without looking, he wouldn't have skin on his hands. Or a head. Motorcycle gear is designed to keep you alive.

For my bike(bicycle, as Younger Brother Motorcycle INSISTS on using the family shorthand for himself...sigh), I wear a helmet at all times save for that one time I had a strange infection on the back of my head that the helmet was making worse or if I cut my head while shaving and want to likewise avoid infection. I wear a denim jacket when riding, which has saved me at least twice, most recently when I was doored. I rarely wear gloves, if only because I can't find ones I like that fit my just-under-large-but-far-from-medium hands. I am considering knee pads as I am getting older, and walking off injuries has gone from something done without thought to an option that is no longer viable. I may also get forearm guards, but that might really be going overboard.

Ehhh, I always avoided VATS as much as possible. It's literally just an "I Win" button, and it works for every encounter of the game.

Especially in Fallout 3 when it gave you massive damage reduction. Was funny running up to dudes, just point blank right up on them, and then VATS a Frag Grenade into their face while staring them right in the eye from centimeters away.

then why am I dead, slain by insane cannibals?

Oh, don't get me started.

I didn't go on a single (formal) date throughout high school. My first kiss was at 19. And so on...

And along comes Impus Major, and the cutest, most popular girl in their social circle calls him over the summer to come over and hang out with her.

My mind boggles. He must get it from his mother.

----
And for those of you now dying to know what I mean by (formal) date, in high school I would invite girls I liked out to the movies, or dinner, or what-have-you. But they always considered it, "Hanging out with a friend." If I tried to call it a date, they refused, and called it, "Too weird."
Yep, I always got the, "I don't want to date you, you're too nice," line.

Either I was told I was too nice or I was told I was too much of a perv. Ah well. I just gotta be me.

Middle School? Middle School!??!?!?!

Impus Major is starting high school next week!

Isn't there a rule that you have to be at least 5'0", or weigh at least 100 pounds, before starting high school?

Nope. My son was under both those requirements when he was a freshman (he has since gotten taller and larger). Fortunately, he was "adopted" by some of the seniors in the marching band, which helped him avoid most of the not-so-awesome stuff that happens to smaller kids.

Oh, Impus Major is a force unto himself. I have *NEVER* seen such a self-assured kid.

Proud parent moment: I was chaperoning the choir trip and no one knew who the weird old guy was. But in a conversation a couple of rows over I heard Impus' name mentioned. A cute little pixie girl (I cannot think of a better description of her. She was charming!) piped up with, "Oh, my God! <Impus> is awesome! I love <Impus>!", at which point the group with her all said, "Yeah," and sighed dreamily.

I do not think he will be lacking for friends in high school...
...he makes everything about himself his own.

He does play Malek, after all...

So, a big belated "congratulations" to all FaWtLer's, past and present.

Last night was really HARD: A series of hot days, alone with the kids for the evening, and nothing much to do but sit back and relax. What's the harm in a simple gin & tonic to beat the heat?

...and then I thought about how disappointed the FaWtL crowd would be in me if I failed after only 80 days, so I refrained.

Alcoholism, even the relatively minor type like I had, is a beast. Don't try it at home, kids!

EDIT: I don't kid myself that 4-5 drinks a day ranks very low on the scale of hardcore alcoholism, but even that was enough to have me addicted for years. This journey is frequently easy, frequently rocky, and sometimes, like last night, just downright hard and unpleasant...
