Hey Ice, very important:

Please keep a very close eye on yourself. If in the next couple of days anything starts to feel sore or hurt, go to the ER and get checked out.

When I was in my very bad car accident with my mom, I wasn't in any pain at first, hyped up as I was on adrenaline. It wasn't for a good day or so that I started to have back pain. My muscles have been sore and in pain ever since, and this was back in 97.

That was the same year I was in a major car wreck. I wasn't driving at the time, but basically a bus ran a red light and we smashed straight into the side at 40mph. Miraculously, we walked away without a scratch. But a day or so later my neck started hurting. Much the same idea. I hadn't been able to feel the pain through the adrenaline.Thankfully a few weeks of regular chiropractor appointments got that sorted out. That's downright appalling that you're still in pain 18 years later. :(


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Well, as long as everyone's okay, that's the important part. I know that the after stuff with filing an accident report and such utterly sucks. And coming down off that adrenaline rush...not fun at all. But yeah. It's going to be okay.

Hate myself all the more.

1. Are you okay?

2. Is the other person/thing/car okay? Is your car okay? I'm assuming you were driving?
3. I don't know many people who haven't had a car accident at some point in their lives. As bad as it is right now, you're going to get through this,


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Sigh. This is what happens when the site is down for maintenance during the only time of the day when I have time to sit down and post so I end up posting late at night instead. :/
Well, it's not like Dave stayed long enough to actually effect the actions as stated. Just assume that he pops in and pops out in between the part where the Headmster flinched and the part where he stood up from his desk and cleared his office.

Yes, thank you. Things are a weird mix of not busy and be ready for busy since my friend got back from her surgery in Indy.

No problem. I hope your friend's recovery is swift and uneventful. :)

I'm not sure if it's on american netflix, but I'd also recommend Samurai Flamenco for the sheer ridiculousness factor. Kinda feels like it's made by the same people that did Devil is a Part Timer.

I'll look for that one. Devil is a Part Timer is one of my favorites, so if it's in that vein I would probably like it. :)

So there is a possibility that my other eye might go kaput soon as well so before the possible blindness sets in I've decided to play Skyrim again, last time I played it on ps3 with no expansions but now I'm playing it on steam with the full suite, any recommendations for mods to the game for an even funner experience?

Very sorry to hear that your eyes might get worse. :(

Kidlet says that Hearthfire, dragonborn, and dawn guard are all good. I wouldn't know since Skyrim makes me motion sick, but he's played enough hours of it that I figure he knows what he's talking about. :)


Honestly, just keep doing what you're doing. If everybody's having fun, then you're doing it right.
If you want them to act in character more just keep providing lots of background to interact with. And if they nibble at something, run with it. If interacting leads to better story and more fun, they'll do more of it. Positive reinforcement is the best.

Just try to remember to let me know you're alive and okay when you need a break. I totally understand if you need some you time, but I worry if I don't hear from you at all. :)

(The headmaster, not DB3)

Yeah, there's a secretary. But at least a couple of these problems do require the Headmaster's attention. Still, enrolling new folks could be sent on to the secretary to handle. We'll see how things go, I guess.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

So not really sure where DB3 is. I tried emailing him, but if he's having computer troubles that wouldn't do much good. If any of y'all are friends with him on facebook, I suggest checking in to see if all is well. Otherwise all we can do is wait. And if it is computer troubles, well, no telling how long that can take. I'll give it a few more days and then I'll go ahead and GMPC some of the key scenes to let stuff move on.

Do you buy your za'atar as a blend or make it yourself?

I'm thinking of getting skin-on chicken pieces (or a whole butterflied chicken), mixing za'atar with cold butter, and stuffing the spice mixture under the skin. Then dust outside of skin and roast. Maybe make some roasted chickpea salad to serve with it.

I buy it as a blend. Normally I'm all about mixing things myself, but sometimes you just gotta go with the premixed. Za'atar and garam masala are two things that I always just buy the mix. :)

It helps that unlike more regionally conventional mixes those aren't stretched out with ingredients that can make me very sick. I've had to learn to make taco seasoning, jerk seasoning, and so on for myself because they often have wheat flour in them.

Anyways, your idea should taste good. It's more work than what I do, but I am a notoriously lazy cook. :)

Ah. I compared several za'atar recipes and it seems pretty simple. The most complicated thing is a spice grinder to whiz it up, and I can just use my old coffee grinder that I used twice before deciding freshly ground beans before every pot was too much work. I'm not sure my supermarket carries the za'atar mix, so if they don't, I have the list of spices to make it.

I'm not sure who I got the idea for the butter + spices + herbs under-the-chicken-skin-trick, but it works well for seasoning the chicken meat and helping keep it moist.

Haven't ate lunch yet, but today's dinner is an alpha test of Chaotic Chicken & Rice in the slow cooker. (It started off as a downsized recipe for chicken & 40 cloves of garlic, but then I started added Mediterranean spices to it.) Roasted chickpea salad will have to wait until...

It's the sumac I can't get. None of the groceries around here carry it. *shrug*

That chickpea salad sounds delicious though. Will have to make that soon. :)


Today I will use leftover taco meat in a salad for lunch. This is kind of a theme here. Leftovers are for lunches. :)

Well, it's not exactly magical, but it's really great to make on nights you don't really want to cook. Za'atar is a spice blend. You can usually find it in middle eastern groceries. Or Whole Foods. Za'atar chicken is a staple at my house. Put a bunch of chicken legs in a baking pan. Drizzle olive oil over them. Sprinkle generously with sea salt. Then I add the za'atar by the handful, thickly coating the chicken with a spice crust. Bake at 350 for an hour while you go do other things that aren't cooking, I generally serve with salad or some other vegetable that doesn't take prep since the whole point for me is to spend as little time cooking as possible. :)

I should really get up and go clean the kitchen. It's taco Tuesday after all and the kidlet looks so forward to that.
But the cat just keeps purring and it's so hard to get up......

Also I think my cat has mastered the sleep spell. Every time I wake up from a nap I hadn't meant to take there she is curled up against my back and purring....

After a 48 hour migraine over the weekend with back pain that never let up even after the headache eased, I dragged myself to the chiropractor yesterday.
Today I can't stay awake for more than a half hour at a time. I think this is probably a good sign that my back is finally starting to heal. Wish I knew what triggered that whole episode so I could avoid it in future. :)

Does Dave have a method of teleporting through wards that block teleportation?

Champion teleport trumps all.

Actually, no. Plot trumps all.

I am curious about the Champion teleportation though. I believe it allows you to 'port to wherever your ideal already exists. Thus, the Champion of Light couldn't teleport into someplace that was 100% dark.

However, does the Champion arriving count? That seems a lil unfair if it does. Sort of like how George Carlin once questioned how an airline attendant could welcome you to a place she is only just now arriving at. Seems to defy physics.

No, the Champion arriving doesn't count for that unless they arrived by more conventional means.

And let's face it, Pride definitely exists in the Headmaster's office. :P

That was Jaiye's last post. So basically one of your characters interrupted your other character with a raven playing Lassie. :P

I am the psionics professor, yes. What is the problem?

sorry .. I completely missed another psychic trauma.

Raelle was taken to the infirmary unconscious after some serious overchanneling. And now Ardiente is looking worried while Tami is badgering the nurse to get someone here to help. :)

Oh, and there are at least three people/groups waiting to see the Headmaster. Jessa, the void creatures being led to the office by Vickory, and Miss Jones. The last one can wait. But at some point she does deem it necessary to inform her employer that there are certain problems threatening to get out of hand..... :)

Will respond later. Grocery shopping day. Ugh. Must go fetch food items....but why does it always have to be such an ordeal?!

Anyhow, when I do get back I would love to be able to move forward on some scenes.
The demon fighting scene with Jeran and Dave is waiting on Vare. Pretty sure Jeran's last post was asking Vare what to do against this thing. Unless it got eaten. But I really thought that one went through.

Not quite sure where we're at with the Balance resurrection scene, but I'm planning to post some Aurix shenanigans soon. And I really need to figure out what Veesha is doing....hmmm.

My friend and bandmate is getting married on Saturday. Me, I'm just waiting for the right Shadow Broker to come along.

I literally cannot play mass effect and NOT start a relationship with liara. I tried. It is impossible.

I also choose Ashley every time. Because my GOD, what's-his-face(I have intentionally forgotten his name) is an embarrassment and should turn his manhood in at the start of the game.

Kaidan is definitely creepy stalker dude.

But I can't get on with Liara at all. The awkwardness is almost cute. Almost. But she's just so needy. (I fault the game writers here. They bring on the relationship stuff both way too soon and way too heavy handed as I often found myself screaming at the tv, "but that has nothing to do with the conversation option I picked, I didn't say that!")

It's cold, I made pies to warm the place up, that worked for awhile, but now the kids are sluggish from too much pie and bickering, but because of the smoke I can't really banish them outside, so that means an indoor place like a toy store or Barnes and Noble, why not the mall you ask? Tiny T-Rex hates the mall, does nothing but complain the whole time "there's no machines! Where are the trucks?" He won't even go in Build a Bear! According to him stuffed animals are magical creatures that should never be made by the hands and fluff jets of human beings, who "will just a screw it up anyways"

So I've been watching a lot of Legend of Korra the last couple days cause I had to do something while I was too dizzy to stand up. And your description of Tiny T-Rex here has me pretty much picturing him as Milo now. :)

Also, I am a bit stuck in the scene with Grim and Tarka at the moment. I know Tarka is on the roof, but until she either responds to the aschen's yelling or until Grimi says hey, she's up here on the roof, the aschen continues to walk around yelling for Tarka. At least unless he gets attacked by paranoid air benders. :P


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

I think most of the questions have been answered already, but quick synopsis of the scenes for Lang just to make sure that everything is clear:
Ephebe was teleported away forcibly by her Patron. Krays showed up briefly to sort out what was going on and got one of the monks to agree to supervise the children for the rest of the ceremony. Lang and Sara are with the Owls and have been talking. I think Midori was with them but is now on her way back to the main building where the others are. pretty sure she was talking to Sun while they walked. Grim, Lewis, and Tarka were all still back in the main area. An aschen appeared looking for Tarka. It's been sent to borrow something from her. It will be a short interaction, no doubt finished by the time Lang and Sara are done with their thing.
Basically Ephebe is the only one missing the ceremony, and I would strongly suggest having the ceremony itself start as soon as the current interaction between Lang and Sara is over. It's about the right time for it,

As far as Melody is concerned, we are kinda in a building scene/holding pattern at the moment. Let me know when you're ready to move forward with trying to close the rift. But it's fine to let it sit for a bit while you're catching up on other stuff, since that reflects the time it takes for them to put the machine together and finish calculations.

Anyways, hope that helps you get back up to speed. I know it can be confusing sometimes when playing in a game that has multiple simultaneous storylines.

Ears are in rough shape after yesterday's fireworks. They were awesome. We went to my father in law's place since he lives on a lake and one of the neighbors with more money than sense paid for a professional display, so we all got to enjoy it for free. :D
The down side of this is that I can barely manage sitting up today. Menniere's + fireworks = pain and lots of falling down. Still can't quite work out which way is up. So today I rest. Is not optional.
Hope the rest of you had an awesome fourth of July and are enjoying the weekend. :)


Fireworks were awesome. But my ears still hurt and standing up is problematic. So day after fireworks is not so awesome.
Well, at least the kidlet had a great time. :)

What I don't understand is why we need destiny when knowledge exists, who knows what will happen in every single timeline with perfect accuracy.

You're getting Knowledge and Time confused there. Knowledge knows what is and what was. It's pretty easy to extrapolate what will be from that, but it's not the same thing as knowing it for sure. Time is the only one who can actually see into the future because he exists there as well as the present and the past and isn't bound by linear notions of his existence. (Wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff) But as Ephebe has noted in the past, Time sees all the futures and sorting out any one future and connecting it to a particular present is....well, it's faster to just wait and see what happens.

Destiny is about equipping particular people to be ready to act at the pivotal moments when timelines split.
