It's been 4 weeks, but this weekend it's back to Numeria for a good long session, we're at 2nd level, should be a fun time :-)
Good luck and have fun. :)It can be tough to get back into things after a long break.
This weekend we will be heading to [redacted] as our brave (and more than slightly traumatized) heroes continue attempting to save a generally ungrateful Cauldron in Shackled City. :)
Gluten free baked goods are a pain. That said, they will never ever get the same consistency as normal wheat based stuff. Even if you've been fortunate enough to get a tasty version. It's basically like having to relearn baking all over again. It takes five different flours just to make a pie crust that doesn't taste like sawdust and sadness for example. Anyhow, good luck. :)

Okay, that's an awesome costume. :)The kidlet could never pull that off though. He's almost twelve and only half an inch shorter than me (I'm 5'2") and very solid build. He's not overweight, but no one will ever call him skinny. Strong,yes, skinny, no. He's been glared at by parents who think he's too old for the playground equipment since he was nine. *shrug* Not much I can do about that.
His standard summer wear is sadly similar though. Too small flannel pajama pants and an old sweater of mine that he 'borrowed' and never returned....I liked that sweater too darn it.
My sympathies. Kidlet got the sniffles during the last week of school and we ended up taking him to the doctor the day after his last day. Turns out the sniffles was actually a sinus infection. So he has spent his summer vacation thus far playing video games to distract himself from how miserable he feels. He's dong a bit better and he's been on the antibiotics long enough now to not be contagious, so I'm planning to take him to the movies this afternoon....gotta get him off of the couch at least for a little bit. :)
Depends. Kidlet was playing that DLC yesterday and....it really did look like a Michael Bay movie....his play style is... Well, he's eleven, so, yeah......
Lol. I never thought so as a kid. It was a confusing color. I could never figure out if it was blonde or brown...or occasionally kinda red....when of course the answer was all of the above. I have never fit into categories well. :P

Oh that just not playing fair. :)
Heh. I have the opposite sort of. My hair is super fine, but there's masses of it and it curls. Not enough to be cute. Just enough to be unmanageable. Finding a stylist who can deal with it without tears is challenging. All the dye has calmed it some. It still throws bobby pins when I wear it up, but at a slower velocity. You no longer hear the ping as a pin hits the wall at speed...:)

Yeah, I tried the gym thing. Didn't care for it. Three mile hike over hilly terrain? Yes, please. Tai Chi in the park? Totally there. Yoga anywhere flat enough to set my mat? Awesome. Kayaking? Well...honestly, not really my thing, but I need to work on my arm strength, so sure. Swimming....yeah, I live in Michigan. We don't even try to swim before June unless it's an indoor pool. Which I'm not fond of. In fact, the overarching theme here is that I prefer outdoor exercise. The gym is somewhere I go in the winter because asthma and super cold temps are not a great combo for me. As soon as it thaws a bit, I'm out of there until the next December.
Edit: the only exercise I willingly do indoors is taekwondo lessons, and that kinda has to be done in a dojo. Which always smells like sweat socks. Blech.

Books? Or a gift card for purchasing ebooks? I mean, can you ever really go wrong with books? :)
Hey, that's just sensible.....they know their genre conventions. Monsters you can fight. A murderous doll? Yeah, thanks, but no, I've seen this movie. :)

I'm on my second playthrough. Because it's awesome and I couldn't stay away. :)
Yes, I definitely feel this way. I often find myself self-censoring because of it. And sometimes I get past it and speak up anyways because that's the only way to 1) not be invisible and 2) to not go insane trying to hide who I am. Sometimes it's hard not fitting neatly into one category. But the folks here are really nice and supportive, so that helps.
Finished coloring my wife's hair for her birthday. Though I prefer her natural blonde she wanted to try bright red, she looks good, kinda like an anime character!(though not on lynora's level)
Awesome! Bright red is fun. I did the fire engine red hair many years ago. It was a good look, but a bit too tame for me now. :)
Oh, I think we can all agree that Gwyneth Paltrow is a bit clueless about shopping on a tight budget. Good first effort though.Also of course produce for a whole family is that expensive. The more people you add and all that. :)
The article Treppa linked also gave an example of how someone could spend that amount of money, eat fairly healthy, and still get sufficient calories. That shopping list looked very familiar. Not an exact match but pretty similar to how I shopped when money was super tight. So it kinda proves what I was saying, which is that it is possible. Not fun, but possible. Obviously it's a lot nicer when you have more money and can buy nicer stuff and more variety of fruits and veggies. I've just seen a lot of people eat nutritionally poor food because they didn't know they had better options. sometimes with dire health consequences. And I know it doesn't have to be that way.
I disagree that eating healthier is more expensive. It just requires some smart shopping and a lot more cooking from scratch. And a lot less meat. That stuff gets expensive quick. But it can be done without starving. Or feeling like you're starving.
Huh. You know, I did not realize that was something I felt so passionately about. Weird. Anyhow, I was raised on 'health food' so I guess that's part of it.

Starting to come to my attention that I need to start getting back in shape and eating better. Problem is, a) I have basically no money, and b) my back is shot and my knees are on their way out. Any suggestions?
I second (third...whatever) the suggestions for tai chi and yoga. You can find a bunch of good lessons on YouTube and while a yoga mat is nice it isn't strictly essential, so you can do either with no equipment.If you want some recipes and/or suggestions for how to not be malnourished while wishing you had enough money to be on a shoestring budget, I can probably help. Been there, done that. I can at least steer you away from my mistakes. Hint: eating nothing but rice for a month, not the best idea. But it does beat going hungry. (Sometimes I wonder how I actually survived my twenties...)

Maybe we should go talk to the nurse. She had charts and diagrams and stuff. It was way easier to understand."
Yep. Crash course in sex ed part two....not how she thought she was going to be spending her day. :P
I got my hair touched up today. The blue came out much darker. Kind of an iridescent midnight color, a bit like starling feathers. Which is cool.
My husband is more lucid today which isn't doing him any favors since he is still in a lot of pain. And bored out of his mind. He's so frustrated about not being able to read or watch tv. Not that he can pay attention to anything yet. I've played the same podcast for him twice and he didn't even recognize it the second time... Looks like a longer than predicted recovery.
My husband had eye surgery this morning. It went well and he is in recovery. Meanwhile I am slowly losing what's left of my mind being cooped up in the waiting room. ADHD and sitting and waiting for hours make a bad combo. I've been getting up and changing seats every so often like it was the mad hatters tea party and I keep tapping my feet and stuff, but still.....waiting room is so boring! Ugh. And it could be hours yet. :(

It sounds like your wife and I share similar philosophies. I learned it from my mom. My husband gets a kick out of the confused expressions on people's faces as they are trying to figure out what they just agreed to on those rare occasions when I decide that something is worth making a bit of a fuss over. :)
We may have to gift a copy to his friend that he plays online with. We still have enough store credit left from trading in all the games he doesn't play anymore. Kidlet is an only child so no convenient player two at home. :)(Usually I'm trying to Get Things Done during his video game time since it one of those rare times when he is not wanting attention....)
It certainly beats the hell of putting together a scrapbook with all the old photos. Blegh. I hate scrapbooks/photo albums/any variation thereof. But apparently random box of photos is not considered a good storage option. :(
Keme cursed under his breath as they navigated the last couple of turns. Thankfully the kitchen had hovercarts to use to carry all this food. Unfortunately the carts had terrible steering and he was certain they were designed for the maximum number of collisions with the wall.
"I said left.....other left!" he yelled back to Repp who was helping steer the unwieldy chain of carts from the back.
Loving the time travel discussion. So much inspiration. And just when I'm in the middle of a time related arc too. *evil grin*
Now let's see if this post goes through. I've been having internet trouble the last couple of days and I'm really hoping that it's better enough that I can actually post game updates. Unlike last night when I swear my computer laughed at me when I tried to make a post....
Edit: Woo! First try! Presuming I don't lose connection again I should be able to post updates after dinner.
Thank you. :)
(I've been working on accepting compliments graciously instead of arguing with people when they tell me something nice. But dang those insecurities are persistent. :P)
My first post was May 2007. It was in a thread about what you wished you could be in real life...I still stand by my answer. :)
In the meantime, back in real life, spring cleaning is kicking my butt. All the dust is making my eyes itch and swell up...but this place is gonna look amazing whenever I actually finish...sometime before summer officially gets here I hope. :)

She stared at him for a moment, going pale as the news went from bad to worse. She was worried about what was so bad he wasn't telling her, but more concerned about the impending end of the world.
