If anything, the humans are underdone. What makes a Kellid a Kellid is still a mystery to me, for instance, as is the difference between Taldane and Chelish humans.

From Urizen's Facebook page:

How Much Of A Music Snob Are You?
Please take a break from alphabetizing your vinyl collection and take this quiz.

Only 48.

I got 32. Also from Urizen's Facebook page: "Black Metal isn't a phase!"
Only 26
I got 17. I suck.

I got 33.

And Norwegians are heavily into Black Metal, so it must be rubbish. ;)

Edit: Probably would've scored higher if it'd been less Amerifocused. Like I've crawled in the shop window of Lennart Persson's recordshop in Malmö FFS!


Is anyone else listening to Tea & Jeopardy? (runner up for best podcast in this year's Hugos).

Not being used to new much lighter and faster road bike and completely eating it on a curb in front of a Sheriff who stopped to witness me wailing loudly in shock on the ground. On the plus side, not hurt badly, just going to have a super bruised hand by end of the day/tomorrow :(
I have two bikes - one for work which is really low, has no gears, and handles like the bicycle equivalent of a tank - one private one which is a fairly regular city bike that's about 3-4 times as fast as the work one. Every spring when I start using the private bike again I have at least four or five incidents where I nearly hit the curb because I've forgotten how much faster and wider it takes the curves.
Why do you take the slower bike to work, out of curiosity?

To start with, I use it at work, not just for getting to work.

The slower bike is (A) not mine, but the company's. (B) At a better height for me to reach people's mailboxes, meaning that while getting to and from work would be faster on the faster bike, when I'm at work, the slower bike is actually the faster one.

Also, because it's built to be the bicycle version of a lorry, it's pretty much impossible to fall over on it, even when the ground is covered in ice.

On the plus side, I had enough energy left after work to bike down to the bakery so I could have freshly baked bread (as in, I had to wait 8 minutes for them to get it out of the oven fresh) for breakfast.

*sighs* Logged out from Paizo on the phone, and now I can't log back in with it.

Kinda making it hard to even lurk properly. :(

So apparently at Pea Bear's new school it costs them $300 for each kid to ride the bus, at least that's what they tried charging me.

Yeeaahh!! No thank you! even if we didn't live 3 blocks max from the school there's no way i'm giving em that much to bus, i'd drive her myself, also Saddle Club (*sigh* yes it's one of those schools) was 88 bucks, luckily Pea Bear wasn't biting, despite her deep and passionate love of horses:-)

Pardon someone from foreign parts, but shouldn't three blocks be short enough to trust Pea Bear to walk on her own, or is the traffic that bad?

They got D&D/Pathfinder/Generic RPG in my strategy game!!


And we're moving into the last week of this year's vacation, which apart from a visit from my mother's siblings, has been pretty bad. Haven't been able to get my sleeping pattern in good order, and not had enough money to go anywhere interesting. Good riddance, I say.

Godsdamnit!! You turn your eyes away from the southern border for two months to straighten out your border with the French and BOOOM you're having to deal with a huge Ummayad invasion to take back Aragon from you.

Can't wait for them to start fracturing I tells you.


And whatever they changed that made me able to post on the phone again has been changed to non-postability. :(

Oh, thanks SO much Freehold! I'm going to IKEA with my mom tomorrow night so she can get me a mini-figure display case as a belated birthday present.

Now I'm going to be giggling maniacally and rubbing my hands together as I wander the store.

You just want to see me get arrested, don't you?

This is the correct way of handling a trip to IKEA.

Yeah, the Abba cannery is infamous for that.

Nooo! I just recovered it from Teutonic Order! Keep your oars off of it!

Well, you know, some Poles thought that in 1655 too... ;)


Gonna be nice to the shipyard workers, though. I hear messing with them is bad for your government's long-term survivability...

How does "have some chick with a nice voice say something in French over the middle-8" work so well for pop songs?

Also, how long do you think it'll be between me being happy that I can post on my phone again and me remembering how frustrating typing stuff on it is?

Isn't twiddling on your phone while on a bike also impossibly difficult:-)

We aren't going to hear stories on the news about a distracted long ship on a bicycle plowing into a market are we :-)

Nah. No markets in my district. May have to make sure I don't hit a minaret, though. They get enough crap from idiots as it is already.

Joke's on you, I work at a library!

Oi once shared a flat with a cute blonde girl who went to Bibliotekshögskolan in Borås and was a member of the Finnish Nation there.

(Students at Swedish unis organise into "nations" that started out based on what part of the country they're from - lots of Finns moved to Västergötland in the 60s and 70s to work in the car and textile industries.)


I just got an American "Centre For Child Immigrants" as a Twitter follower, to which I can only wonder, "why?"

A Swedish one would've sort of made sense...

I prefer sneaking on a work PC and hoping that the boss doesn't notice. It's more exciting that way.

Bit hard to do that on a bicycle. ;)

Testing.


Sorry to hear about your eye Yuugasa. Here's hoping for the best.

Also: Just ran the Ummayads out of Aquitaine - let's hope it sticks for a decade or so until I get a competent king. (According to Crusader Kings II, Charlemange getting killed after just a year or two on the throne would've been real bad for the Frankish kingdoms.

That stick has been with me since I was a wee gobshite, and it's got a good two or three decades in it still!!

The parents returned from Leven this Friday and brought a nice Scottish Blend for me - a 240 bags box! :D

Also a nice Irish blend of the kind we don't talk about here. ;)


Not that herculean - I'd even say the prose flows better than it does in either The Hobbit or Lord of the Rings.

I remember being disappointed the first time I read it when I was about 12 or 13, but when I tried it again at six or seven years later, with a bit more "grown-up" literature in my bag of experiences, it was a relevation.

Just going to point out that never have my "manliness" been so appreciated and given confirmation as the three years I worked in the traditionally female job of preschool teacher.

Because, if someone hasn't gotten it yet, your job has nothing to do with your gender.


But only if you like shows with basically no action scenes in them. Plenty of tight emotions though.


Six episodes in, and I feel safe to say that Indian Summers is a terrific show. Watch it.

For my not-even-any-notes-yet pre-apocalyptic setting, I'm thinking of having cities of decadent, rakshasa-worshiping/ruled jungle elves.

I am glad that you are enjoying Crusader Kings II, Kajehase. If you like that, then you should try the other Paradox games in their grand strategy lineup.
Europa Universalis IV is the one that got me hooked. I loved making crazy custom nations and trying to pull off some goal or another (Seabearia tried to take over as many island and coastal provinces as possible, for instance :P )

I got my first taste with Europa Universalis II (all you southern US types speak Swedish in several of those realities - as does the Aussies). There's been a few improvements to the engine since then, I'd say...

Two days in and I've already bought three expansion packs for Crusader Kings - and one is just to make your starting ruler look (and be called and a few other things - skills are scored against its starting age) the way you want.

Soon the Ulfhuvud dynasty shall bring as much of Scandinavia as possible under them.
