A novice once won a wine tasting contest by describing the taste of one white wine as 'opening a yellow umbrella in a warm summer rain'.

Wine is not the first thing that image brings to my mind, but then I'm a nasty person.

Minnesota really is beautiful, though. I love all the little lakes.

I have a job. Well, another job. This one pays by the hour. Soon, my life will be this patchwork of odd jobs.

Well, Christina Stiles let the cat out of the bag on her Kickstarter "Guide for Gamer Girls" update. I'm working with her to help organize her projects and learn the indy ropes as well. She recently left her job to go full-time, so a lot of new things will come through the Medusa Pipeline very soon. (Note: Not everything is for the Pathfinder system)

If you'd like to keep abreast of developments, sign up for her newsletter and don't miss a thing.

Hey, at least it's not some random Kickstarter. :P

I tried 'The Banner Saga' soundtrack for writing, but still prefer Halo's.

... And where's the racism? My best guess is "The Patchwork Girl of Oz", with its quote of that song "Ah wants mah Lulu, mah coal-black Lulu", and with the "Tottenhots" apparently referring to the Hottentots. I didn't think that was so bad.

Or am I missing something? What sexism and racism did you mean?

It's from "The Woggle-Bug Book", wherein the Woggle Bug comes to Earth and encounters (mostly) women from all different ethnicities and one 'Oriental' man. Between the dialect and the stereotyped ethnic portrayals, it's embarrassing. I'm on Ozma of Oz right now, fourth of the series. I thought the lackadaisical attitude toward gender changing in "The Marvelous Land of Oz" was pretty interesting. General Jinjer's troops were silly, but Glinda's weren't. Plus the men were portrayed as having difficulty with 'women's work'. I didn't have a lot of issues with that one.

*Points at the thread title.*

So, uh.... books. Yeah.

I've been reading L Frank Baum's 'Wizard of Oz' series. They are short and easy to read and OH MY GOD. I don't know if that much sexism and racism was standard back in the day, or if Baum was some sort of freak, but yeesh. I'm embarrassed to read some of it.

I'm glad you posted that, Sissyl, because my worst bout of depression was not sadness, it was a complete lack of emotion for months and months. It was actually pretty subtle because it didn't involve sadness, crying, etc. I finally said something to my GP because I was utterly apathetic as to whether I ever woke up again, and my reason told me that this was not normal.

After a few apathetic weeks on an SSRI, I woke up one morning and thought 'what a pretty morning'. But that day, I felt it, too. I was glad to see the morning. And that was the beginning of the climb out of the hole. There was no dramatic breakthrough. In fact, I hate the 'hug and cry' movies wherein a sudden change fixes everything. That doesn't happen. It may be part of the climb, but it doesn't get you out of that deep hole. Trying every day is what gets you out. Using all the tools at your disposal is what gets you out. It's a long, hard slog and that shadow is always there, waiting, even when you feel better.

First thing ever submitted for publication under my own name. Please edit it. Maybe you can get it from 1500 to 750.
Well done at least you submitted something, I know my own writing isn't upto that standard.

It's not your fault. I blame the British education system. :P

It may sound stupid, but HabitRPG is helping. I did not expect it, but soon found this is an excellent depression management tool, perhaps in the category of behavior mod.

Once you sign up (free!) and set up your character, put all those day-to-day things that enhance your well-being but are so hard to do when depressed into the Habits column. Mine are as simple as showering, brushing teeth, eating a piece of fruit, checking email, picking up trash, etc. For some reason, I respond to the 'check it off the list' visual reminder motivation better than to the 'it's good for me' sort. PLUS, you get XP for doing them.

The habits and daily show up fresh each day so you have to do them again to get more XP and turn your screen green. You can't lose this to-do list.

This also helps me keep tabs on how bad my state of mind is on a given day, even when I'm out of touch with my feelings. If I'm having a hard time checking off the easy stuff, I know it's time to meditate for a few minutes, or really hit the list hard. Getting things off there gives me a feeling of accomplishment, and accomplishing the things on my list puts me in a better place because I'm clean, dressed, have eaten something healthy, have improved my surroundings, etc.

Maybe it will help you guys, too. Best of luck in the fight.

Sal gives Morien a nod, then slips away from the table after Danny so they exit looking like a couple. She looks bored and ignores him so they really look like a couple.

Made my own chicken strips yesterday, pan-frying them after double-breading, once with flour, once with roasted garlic panko crumbs. They were so easy and much more delicious than anything from fast food places! I've pan-fried chicken before but it sometimes doesn't cook through before browning properly. The strips were thinner than whole breast filets and cooked better.

Go me!

Let's see... we have 1 dog/500 ft2. 5 acres is 217,800 ft2. So that goes to 435.6 dogs in a 5 acre area.

Seems reasonable.

In the realm of the crappy, John and I may have to start looking for a new place. It looks like the owner of the house we rent is planning to sell later this year. There is no chance of us finding a place like the one we have for what we pay. We have a sweet deal on this place.

I really don't want to move. It will be the 6th time in 4 years for me.

Any chance he'll let you buy it and finance it himself?

When the dog next door wants in, he trots to the back door, sits down, barks once, and waits for the door to open. If he has to wait for a minute or two, he barks again, once.

When my dog wants in, she plants her butt in the middle of the yard and barks loudly at the entire neighborhood or the sky or bugs or something - loudly and continuously until she's called in.

I used to think she was being dumb, but she gets brought in much faster than the oh-so-polite dog next door.

Belated happy anniversary, FHDM.

I was up at 4 a.m., Dave. We shoulda hung out. Oh, wait. That time zone thing.

Why was I up at 4 a.m.? Dunno. Seemed like a good time to experiment with media.
