I first learned about the interesting properties of squash miscegenation when I planted several varieties too close to one another. You end up with some freaky-looking squash.

Kinky.


Zucchini-cheese pie is delicious. So is zucchini bread.

If I lived somewhere that both blackberries and zucchini were weeds, I'd be in heaven.


Council of Thieves also gives you a pool of NPC's for assistance. She could run them along with her own character as she becomes more comfortable with the system.


I tried to make real pumpkin pie by baking my own pumpkin and pureeing it in the blender.

The blender lid popped off because I wasn't holding it.

Hot cooked pumpkin shot 12 feet into the air. I know it was 12 feet because that's how high the white popcorn ceiling was.

And what goes up must come down.

>_<

Oh, it's fine if the imp (or his brother) returns. I thought it would be funny to have an infernal familiar that she doesn't like.

Whatever evilness your GMing mind comes up with is dandy with me.

On the phone with Mom:

Mom: How's the jaw healing?
Me: Really well. There's still a little numbness and swelling, but it's not a huge problem. I slur some words occasionally unless I'm careful.
Mom: I noticed. I figured you were drunk.

Sorry to FB friends about the repeat.


lol we stole the Normandy


While reporting my dog's death to the adoption agency that placed him with us, they mentioned the name of the malady he had: hemangiosarcoma. It's common in larger dogs. I looked it up in several places online and it sounds fast and deadly.

Knowing more makes me feel better. He wasn't having a lot of trouble until it started fairly suddenly, and they don't last long once symptoms become obvious. There wasn't anything I could have done to prevent it or check for it in advance. The only bad thing was its emergence just as I was undergoing surgery, but I don't think the timing would have changed at all. He was having a lot of good days when I was home recuperating; it didn't get mostly bad until just before I took him in for the last time. So... nothing else could really have been done.

I feel better knowing this.

Isn't the bad guy killing the reluctant hero's dog often the catalyst for the reluctant hero to snap and finally open up a can of whupa$$ on the BBEG?

2016, you killed my dog. You've gone too far and I'm feeling a leeettle crazy right now...


If it's urine, it could be a UTI. Dogs that can't void their bladder often enough can get infections that make them need to urinate frequently, urgently, and uncontrollably.

If it's other stuff, I dunno.


I empathize with your mom, CH. Hope she is doing OK. The house feels really empty right now.

He'd probably try to bite her. He was pretty much a jerk to other dogs and ridiculously protective of me for no good reason. He wasn't real smart, either, but had a peculiar low cunning that enabled him to do things like decoy his sister away from her food so he could eat it. He sprawled all over the hallway and refused to move, making himself a dangerous obstacle course (particularly at night). He did tricks reluctantly and only if food was readily available. I couldn't take him out to the dog park and have a relaxing chat with other dog parents because he'd be trying to eat their dogs. He'd guard the water dish all damned day so his sister couldn't get a drink. Total jerk.

I miss the dumb mutt already.


Thank you all for your kind condolences.


Welp, he's gone.

Details:
Poor guy was full of cancer and was bleeding into his belly. Vet thought his RBC was probably higher in his abdomen than in his bloodstream. Even if I had $4-5k for surgery, she wasn't sure he'd survive the anesthesia, much less surgery. And he was miserable - couldn't catch his breath. It was time. And it was peaceful and full of treats and love.


Nope. Getting that on everything.

Diagnosis: Chat is borked.


Taking Dogbreath in to the vet for Xrays today. He seemed at death's door Sunday, then improving Monday, and today seems pretty good. This constant up and down is very wearing on the nerves. I can't imagine he feels too good about it, either, but I hate to have him put down when he's still enjoying some good days.

Doggie details:
The vet suspects he has tumors on liver or spleen which occasionally bleed into his abdominal cavity. Between bleeds, he recovers to a point. Then after a bleed, he feels awful. This is classic for a big Lab-type old dog. I saw this on a TV show last week and that dog lasted a few weeks after surgery to remove the tumors. So I've been giving him bits of people food and doing things to make him happy figuring he doesn't have much time no matter what I do. But surgery? No way. I'm in that boat with Patrick and Sharoth - can't afford any financial disasters.

Home now.

Restoring your previous version of Windows.

Let's hope it means Windows 7.

What oogs me out is that it's being promoted as bombastically and as intelligently as a WWE event, not a political debate. I expect to see Richard Dawson as emcee.

I don't know yet. Had to have my roommate power it off at midnight when it hadn't changed from when I left. Plan to stop in today to put up drapes and see what shape the PC is in.

Fingers crossed.

Waaaal, sheeeeeeeit. I decide to do the hour-long drive and stop back. It's 4% complete when I leave. It's 59% complete when I return. And it stays there.

I look it up under update problems. "You should wait. Ours was stuck at 75% for over two hours, then took off."

(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻)

So I left it and didn't get pbps updated. I'll text my roommate tonight and have her check. If it's still stuck, she'll have to turn it off and there's a many step fix process I will need to do.

DEATH TO WINDOWS 10!

My roommate had to shut off the power. I've no idea what state that machine is in.

I drove through a fried fish stand on the way home from work and managed to eat all of the fish (not the crispy breading) and a few soft french fries. The doggies got the breading and hush puppies (which were like rocks) and the bulk of the fries. I got a sore jaw, but it was worth it. OM NOM.

Probably a stupid thing to do, but you don't really need to chew fish, and real food was nice.

I'm on the high plains, but the mountains are an hour away. And I plan to get snow tires this winter so I can drive in all but the worst weather, even in the mountains.

C'mon down. Up. Over. Whatever.

It's crazy windy here today, with snow in the mountains. YEAH!

My Baby Mama Kitty Cat is going to live. The vet called me and said that she was not diabetic and her kidneys are coming back. She was looking at kidney failure due to the infection, but they seem to be doing better due to the antibiotics and them rehydrating her. ~sighs~ Another day or two and we would have lost her. As it is, she will probably be loosing a few teeth due to me not realizing that she was that sick.

Don't blame yourself. Animals in the wild don't want anything else to know they are sick, because then they're vulnerable. They have gotten very good at covering when they don't feel good, and that has passed through to our domesticated buddies.


I'll play too. Need to work up a character.

I, on the other hand, cook acorn squash regularly. It's delicious, nutritious, and soft.


What? Facebook told me that it arrives in about 10 minutes.

I gave up and got up to work. 10 minutes later, she followed me into the office and is now lying on the bed in here, snoring while I work.

It's a dog's life.


My 3 am consists of a spoiled dog taking up the lower half of the bed so I can't sleep.

This is why I never let her sleep on my bed when she was mine. That, and I'm allergic.

Started approximately 1978, for a couple of weeks on Basic D&D (didn't see the box but the booklet was blue), then our DM transitioned us over to AD&D. So I definitely qualify.

Change 1978 to late 1977 and this is me. Guess I'm a grognard, too.

I did take a loooong hiatus as gaming was seriously frowned upon by my young adult/adult friends, not to mention my family. Got back into it about a decade ago and it was like being reborn. Started back in 3.0 and swiftly moved to 3.5, then PF when it came out. Sadly, I missed the joy that was 2nd edition. :)

The newer the car, the less willing I am to do my own repairs. I've replaced master brake cylinders and belts and alternators on older cars, but wouldn't even try it now. Heck, I had trouble replacing a brake light bulb on my Focus. The thing seemed designed to thwart replacement.


My alternator died last year. It wasn't too terrible to replace. I had already replaced the battery myself, so they just did the alternator and serpentine belt for around $300, I think.
