By the way, aeglos' appearance reminds me of something. Any of you world builders out there want an excellent template for a tempestuous confederation of micro states do yourself a favor and read up on the Holy Roman Empire. Neither Holy, Roman, or an empire, it nonetheless defined politics in Central Europe for centuries. The member states were a fascinating hodgepodge of governing styles, and the Elector system of awarding the Imperial title was textbook political chicanery. American schools don't even mention this period in history (at least mine didn't). It's fascinating research material for anyone who wants high-level political theater in their games.
and when you all come visiting I can show you the remains of that time like one of the palaces of Emporer Friedrich the First "Barbarossa" here in my hometown.Like all the Emporers of the Holy Roman Empire he had no permanat residence and was constantly on the move from Empirial Free City to Free City.
And I can show you the city hall of Frankfurt (called "the Roman") where the 7 Lord Electors gathered to elect the next King of Germany, who could be meade Holy Roman Emporer of the German Nation by the pope.
On the balcony of the Roman the new King would present himself to the gathering people and throw a big party with dozens of roasted oxens
the German states and our Federal system goes back to the borders during the holy roamn empire

Hey aeglos, you can tell Sabine I saw a real opossum today! I was driving home from choir practice, and there was one on my street, caught clearly by the headlights, about the size of a cat. Not one of the fake ones you guys saw in Chinatown :)
wohoo, possum, cool
I can't belive FHDM did not comment on this

I made Lentil soup, the hard way, with watering lentils for hours. But the finished product was not very good, the soup was watery, did not thicken, tasted blant.
I love my Boy
yeah, I know the problem, Grandmas usually cook by experience not by messuring, which makes it freaking hard to recook. I think Grandmas worldwide do this on purpuse
got a slight cold, boy got a bigger cold, wife got a monster-cold :-(
on a bright side: my roof is finally finished. new insulation, new shingles, the good ones from enameled clay not the s#!+ty ones from concrete and new windows.
now only a new floor, wooden celing, doors and cables are needed, and then paiing the loan for the next twn years :-/ but jeay, new roof
on a brighter note,

I miss spending much time in FaWtL and being a regular, these days I can't really follow the conversations because to much happens in my absence, no time to read everything and no conection to todays regular crowd :-(
I miss talking to Bitter Thorn, AZ, solnes, LPM, the Professor, Jess Door and so many more
and Rock on in Eternity, Lemmy \m/
damn, what a year:
hi every- FaWtL,
I wish everyone a happy and marry christmas.
Boy has caught conjunctivits on his last day of daycare but it is getting better fast.
we will have grandparents over and make deer stew
I am experiencing world of agony at the moment. Had a bunch of dental work done. Fillings mostly, but what really hurts is the areas around my mouth where they propped my mouth open. Ugh. So much pain. And they weren't able to finish all of it because they had extra work to do on some of my teeth that cracked. Which can apparently happen if you grind your teeth in your sleep. Upshot is I need a better bite guard. And another dentist visit. :(
urgh, dentist work sucksI hope the pain goes away quickly, Lynora
damn, that sounds aweful, LS
glad you could be released, I wish you a fast recovery
and never shy away from getting your anger, frustration or fear out of your system in here, that is what FaWtL is here for

oh and usually they kiss everyone they cut the tie from and beat up anyone refusing to get his tie cut - and because they are costumed the tie-cut-refuser can't press charges due to diffucult identification :-)
