Yeah I need to keep my games to a reasonable level. I'd really like to do a Z-Day reboot, but I'm not taking on any commitments until my job sitch is squared away.

I never tried shawarma but it's probably kinda similar to a doner or a gyros?

I've already read about too many people having difficulties with their flights. That sucks.

I remember the year I went for a month to the UK. There was a girl from the Canary Islands who was going to travel with us. We had everything paid because we were on scolarship and we had all made a big effort to get good marks in English to earn the scholarship.

That girl lost the flight because her plane to Madrid was delayed and she couldn't afford to pay a new flight to the UK. The airlines didn't make anything about it. So she went to Madrid for nothing. That sucks.

Sharwarma is pretty much exactly gyro meat. Lamb and beef.

Actually when you get right down to it, Greek and Middle Eastern cuisine have a lot of similarities. Not surprisingly, as they are close geographically and have each conquered the other at different periods.

I have been very fortunate with my plane travels. The worst thing is weather: No one can do anything about it, and bad weather causes a domino effect, bottlenecking travelers and causing a cascade of issues.

That being said, airlines can be pretty tone-deaf to passengers. I like Southwest Airlines, they seem to have their sh!t together most of the time.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I had sharwarma yesterday. It's quite a delicious treat, I hadn't had any for more than a decade. Good rice and warm pita bread too

Paizocon is a bust for me this year.

My flight to Seattle was eventually canceled after a six-hour delay. There were no flights that could get me there today (Friday), with the possible exception of getting on standby for a 8:30 PM arrival. Best guaranteed seat would arrive at 1PM Saturday...which would have meant missing half the con.

I made the decision to just cancel the trip.

So many flights were canceled that there were no rooms at any hotel with airport shuttle service, so I had to take an Uber across town to a so-so Hampton Inn. Checked in at 2:30 AM. At least I got five hours of sleep.

And there are no flights home today, either. Soonest is a 6PM Saturday flight. I'm looking at a one-way car rental for a 5-hour drive home...assuming that I can get a car.

"Disappointed" doesn't really convey how I feel right now.

That sucks! My roomie got stuck in JFK all night last night but is trying again today. Really sorry to hear you got stymied

And I'm awake!

Once again my Dwarvish/Scottish constitution has stood me well., despite my fervent worship of Ometochtli.

CH glad to hear you will at least get out by this afternoon. Todd confirmed our game @8pm tonight v


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Lol. Literally just saw Sebastian.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I'm going to Have to call it for the night. I tried to stay up but I'm hella drunk right now. Time for nightly nights

Smart money is on this flight being cancelled. If that's the case, I just wish it had been cancelled 9 hours ago.

I can't believe they strung you along like this. Lame squared


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Yeah I saw the weather this morning. I flew out like 30 minutes prior to it hitting. I got hella lucky

That's a bummer.

What games are you going to play in this con?

I'm actually in two Planescape ones and Paris is running one for us special. Oh, and I got into the Assimilation Strain tomorrow

Man CH, that sucks, hope you get there soon.

Pat, hope the pre-PaizoCon experience is going well!

I'm in a weird place where everyone I know is pretty much elsewhere. I want to go have fun, but, drinking by myself is kind of sad.

Honestly, the waiting in the airport wasn't the bad part. I can amuse myself. Plus... booze...

The bad part will be getting into Seattle around 1 am. Sorry in advance, Patrick.

Pish. Hopefully I'll still be up partying! Assuming I can find a few buds to drink with

Sounds more like Delta Green at this point...

Fingers crossed

Dude. WTF. They need to give you a voucher or something


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

If I come across him I shall. I'm sure he will be busy with things.

I need a drinking partner. Badger, where are youuu?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I met Paris in the flesh

Also chatted with Lou Agresta. Said hello to Liz Courts, Jason Buhlman, and Erik Mona. Gotta love cons.

Nope. We don't have a pilot.

That is monumental suck.

I was hoping to have a drink or three with you tonight.

I got a vegetable sandwich with real bread for €1.20 and a tea for €0.8 because we also get a discount. It's not that bad but most of the dishes are frozen and it's easily noticeable. The pizza is also awful, with a terribly hard crust and unsavory cheese.

Today I brought my own sandwich from home (saving money you know) but I got a tapa of pasta salad with my tea... I just cannot stand processed mayo.

Btw, do you work in a hospital too?

I did until very recently. I was security. Now I just work my other two jobs.

I'm eating a homemade nut mix. I'm glad I brought snack with me. The airport prices are entirely insane :/


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I'm too far away anyway. And they're boarding me anyway on to Seattle

Hospital's cafeteria. The Purgatory of food.

I liked my hospital's cafeteria. But, I knew all the cooks, and the hospital gave a 'staff only' permanent discount so you could get a fresh-made BLT or a cheeseburger for $1.50. That's a hard price to beat on Cape Cod.

Airports. The Purgatory of travel ...

I might make it happen in a year or two. Right now I am having serious economic issues that will probably be gone after this summer. But until now I couldn't even afford to go to the cinema or to buy a second pair of trousers >.<

I feel your pain. But, I spent too many years thinking 'I can't afford to do ...xxxx". The sad issue is, you never can really afford it, but you can plan, save, and trust in the universe to help you get where you want to. This vacation wasn't feasible when I started. I made it so, by working since December to make it so. A lot of serendipitous events helped. But, if I hadn't kept it in my mind and planned to go, it wouldn't be happening.

So jealous of all people who are going to Paizo Con...

Well, visualize it, plan, and make it happen.

My next big trip will be Central Europe in 2018. I need @10K for the trip I want, but I am already planning it. All the particulars aren't in place, or the funding, but the first step is believing it will happen.

I'm impatient tho. I really want to get underway

Currently sitting in the airport too damn early in the morning. I thought they'd have early check in-I figured wrong.

So I got up early for no damn reason

Oh well, I'm here. That's something.

First actual post was in August of 2007. So I'm a relative newcomer to many of you folks.

This was actually my first gaming message board I ever posted to. I did post a bit at EnWorld and WotC, but that was afterwards, and <100 posts on each.

SHAROTH! I just talked to YOUR bosses! They loved my 'hire a kobold minion' proposal! Expect the first batch of eager kobolds rearranging your hoard by tomorrow at the latest.

Doughnuts are very tasty from a fryer. I'm partial to deep-fried French fries as well(baking just doesn't get the texture right). Fried cauliflower is very good too.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I'm wondering if it would work if I froze some of my chicken soup. I don't want it sitting in the fridge for too long.

Making the white sauce is kinda time consuming but it's a quite simple recipe.

Is it bechamel sauce? . I love bechamel sauce.

So, there's a little bit of good news. I spoke to the bank and got the errant transaction narrowed down. They will block all further transactions from that source. It seems that the source had been skimming $40 from my account since June 2015. The bank will investigate. They also refunded an overdraft fee, so I've got bus money for next week.

And now, the bad news. I do know the person that's been doing this. The Pastor of the Church my Mother and I go to has a side job, selling Life Insurance. I had a policy with him, and I asked him to cancel it when my employer began offering insurance. Why pay twice for the same thing? Apparently, not only had he not cancelled the policy, but he reduced the premium from $100 to $40. And set things up so that it's done electronically, without my permission. And I have a very good memory.

I'll forgive him, of course. But I can't trust him anymore, and I no longer respect him.

Sorry to hear that John. Especially hearing it was someone who abused a position of trust like that. Are you still going to patronize his church or find another?

Looks like we'll have a bunch of the old-skool FAWTL gang there this year.
