The wunian snow dance worked. We had between 4 and 6 inches when I looked out at 5 g+~$*@ 30 this morning (dogs. grrr.). Now it's very foggy because the air is not that cold. Very dangerous.

Although the Europeans get some leeway on the sports point, on account of generally being able to be sensible about it. ;)
Also because when they mention it, no-one else knows what the f#*$ they're talking about.

True, because it's generally gibberish with a few geographic locations and numbers thrown in.

Ah-ah-ah! In order to keep the peace, FAWTL threads have rules. We may be no-good, lowdown, lowbrow lowlifes, but we do have some standards. To quote our beloved PMG and Mistress Solnes:

My favorite thing about Denver is being able to leave doors and windows open and not have bugs fly in. And how cool the air is though it's warm in the sun... my two favorite things are no bugs and cool air. And the lovely view of the mountains. My three favorite things are no bugs, cool air, and mountain views and how dry and clean the air is. My four... no, amongst my favorite things are... are such elements as no bugs, cool air...

I'll come in again.

Paging Treppa to PbPs...

But... but... I got the house to clean and it's not done and...

huh...

You know what? Nobody else cares how clean or not clean the house is. The pressure to get it done today is solely from me on me. In the meantime, people are waiting for me on pbps. Yeah. Yeah, I'm gonna get a cup of coffee and some potato chips and work on pbps.

Thanks, CH.

Props to your correct usage of whose/who's even in an emergency situation. If more citizens had level heads like yours, our job would be much easier.

School projects done and turned in late on the due date. Taxes done late yesterday. Today is house cleaning day, then tomorrow it's an Ogre visit!

I don't owe much in taxes, so the money I've been saving can go for new shocks for the car. Not that it needs it. :/

I was slicing ham preparing to dice it for a quiche (which was delicious) when the block of ham tumbled and the chef's knife cut right through the middle of my ring finger nail. I'm not sure how it's doing. When I took the first bandage off to show people, they said to COVER THAT DAMNED THING UP EW EW EW so I've kept it covered since.

2 projects due Monday for my online front-end web development course. I thought they would be easy. I should not have procrastinated. Sleep, bye-bye.

Ditto!

My family tree probably isn't nearly so,... interesting,... ;)

Although NOW I want to go look and find out!

It probably is, to be perfectly honest. I think they have decided that most of the population of Europe is descended from Charlemagne. The only thing special is that I managed to find that link. Hook into one little royal line, and you're linked to all of them. In the end, we're all cousins.

I'm sure the guy just slipped as they were inspecting the parapets. Then enemies get hold of the tale and blow it all out of proportion. And take it out of context. Besides, the guy probably deserved it. He had it coming.

Spoiler:

I cannot believe I'm trying to justify the actions of a Campbell. In fact, I still can't believe I'm very much a Campbell. It's rather horrifying.

I knew you would like that. You're such a romantic.

TFY: They had some AWESOME nicknames. The Grey Laird's son was "Black Duncan", probably named for his hair color but also reputed to have had a cold, black heart. He is said to have pushed the builder of his castle off the roof to avoid paying.

Another ancestor is Isabella "The She Wolf" from the Capetian line of French kings.

Oh, right, let's not forget Sir John James 2nd Lord Freuchie, "The Red Baird" Grant.

So I've been tracing my family tree and found, on my father's side, a previously unknown connection to the royalty of Scotland and England.


  • My 12th great grandfather was Sir Colin "The Grey Laird" Campbell. He personally decapitated the chief of Clan MacGregor during that whole Rob Roy thing.
  • Colin's wife traces her lineage back to John Stewart, son of James "The Black Knight of Lorn" Stewart and Joan Beaufort, Queen of Scotland after her marriage to James I of Scotland. The Black Knight was James I's best friend and married his widow to help her and their children retain power.
  • Joan Beaufort was the granddaughter of John of Gaunt through his oldest son with Kathryn Swyndon, Chaucer's sister-in-law. They had four chidren during a long affair and were finally allowed to be married. Kathryn was John's third wife and their children were legitimized by the crown and the Pope, but cut off from elegibility for the throne. Aw.
  • The Black Knight's great-grandmother was Matilda Bruce, daughter of Robert (19th great grandfather).
  • The Black Knight's mother was hereditary Queen of the Orkneys (House of Ergardia).
  • Go back far enough in Robert the Bruce's tree and you'll stumble across Harald Hardrada of Norway (26th great grandfather).
  • Go back far enough in John of Gaunt's tree and you smack spang into Hugh Capet (30th great).
  • I think the Capetians go back to Charlemagne but I haven't traced that far.

And of course, our line goes extinct in this generation. Still, it's a cool way to learn history, and there are some hideously romantic stories in there, as well as enough fun politics to fuel a D&D game.

It's also fun seeing all the names we learned in French History class - Joan of Navarre, Isabella of Aragon, Blanch de Artois, Louis VI (Le Gros), Phillippe I (The Fair), Eleanor of Aquitaine - sitting in my family tree.

I enjoy that structure and the first-person narrative, but some of his readers seem to have big objections to both.

I decided to update Goodreads yesterday because I'd been posting books in this thread but not keeping Goodreads up to snuff. When I went to Facebook, I found it had posted every single one of my rated/reviewed changes to my Timeline. *headdesk*

I think it is important to also point out that if you are 50+ (like I am) and grew up playing D&D in the 70's and 80's it's easy to delude yourself into thinking that how it was then is how it is now,but it really isn't anymore. Most people get into the hobby, these days, because they were at a MTG tourney, or Pokémon tourney, Local game store's "board game Saturday" event, or other social gathering (comic convention, midnight book release, game convention, or other event).

That's a good point, and rather a shame. My friends and I got into D&D in 1977 because we overheard a game at University and asked the GM if we could join. It sounded like a blast and we were all into SF and fantasy. We had a mixed M/F group and loads of fun. I'm still close with many of that gaming group today. But I can say with confidence that none of us would have gone to a game shop, so we'd have never had a chance to overhear the fun or join this addictive hobby.

It's encouraging that schools have gaming clubs and that some teachers are introducing gaming to improve math, social, and organizational skills, but I guess it is somewhat more isolated than it was when I started playing.
