Despite my griping, I am glad to be working at a profession that has opportunity for upward financial potential.

As an ignorant stubborn yout, I would pooh pooh people who worked in the 'rat race'.

Problem is, as you get older, working for a pittance at some blue-collar job becomes more and more desperate.

Pro-tip kids: get that degree in a useful skill. Work hard while you are young and can live off pennies. When you get older and want to relax a bit hopefully you be in a spot for it.

There might be problems down the road, and the vet didn't find a definitive cause for his abscess, but he seems to be eating a lot easier.

Could they be the result of infection spreading from the tooth, or is that unlikely?

Too late.

On an unrelated note, why do I felt craving for a banana?


D'oh!

Or he ate something that he shouldn't have, and the bacteria from that took root in multiple places.

That is one of the main options, but she couldn't find a definitive point where the abscess occurred. So it could have been the teeth, or something caught in the eye, or spontaneous behind the eye socket, or an incipient tumor. In order of possibilities.

But no definitive causation could be determined


If he had bad tooth it could lower his immunity to another unrelated infection.


Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

He had several bad teeth removed. Hopefully that improves his quality of life


I live my life like a dog,...

As long as I have teeth left to rub together, there will be MEATS!

Also, I work like a dog,... so,... yeah,... ;P

Also too late here. ;P

I did it backwards, got the degree in what I should be doing for fun, and am now looking for some means to support my family as I enter later/mid life.

No Mid-Life Crises for me. Too many of those going around already. :P
EDIT- And I can't afford it anyway! ;P- /EDIT

Let's see, math is not my strong suit but I'll give it a shot,

Been working this gig for 10 years. I'm 51 now, and I can 'retire' with a State pension from the University in another 10 years.

Of course, I can't afford to live on what they are paying me now, so the odds of being able to live on the pension is,...

Let's just say the odds are NOT in my favor. :P

THIS. THIS is why I hate maths! :/

Is it 18th already?

I need someone with Paizo account with valid payment method and a paypal to get $10 from me and buy me Starfinder Alien Archive pdf...

That issue was dealt with.

Now I have Alien Archive... Guess what will I write for a blog post this Sunday...


In a week I will be after current work. Which will mean I will have more time and energy to write.

Though more than not much does not necessarily mean plenty.


Time to go to shop and get some food.

I did it the right way, but I think it is much easier in Germany with a lot of social security, very strong job markets and a lot of employee rights protecting you from getting fired to easily

choosing (by shear luck) the right profession and the right company did help as well

baby girl and wife will come home tomorrow, yeay!!!

but she will be back to hospital 2 days next week for an MRI

we will see if they find out what caused the problem

most likly I handed it down to her, because I had seizures as a baby as well and got treated until I was 5, then I was cured


Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Well I had hoped DMCal would give me a like for that one but I guess it wasn't quite the same level of Lovecraftian horror... So we'll go with a twist on a classic! ;)

Behold the weekend!


Tremble at its awesome fury!


And there will be cake for everyone!


The cake is a lie.


Sharoth,

We already discussed this: That cake is not dead which can eternal lie, And with strange aeons even death may die.


The cake was never here.

“The cake was, the cake, and the cake shall be. Not in the spaces we know, but between them. The cake walks serene and primal, undimensioned and to us unseen.”


My cake is superior. It uses Pumpkin and Chocolate chips. I can post the recipe later if anyone's interested.


*hates pumpkin* Cholocate chips are good. :)


You could remove the Pumpkin if you want, but then there's no guarantee that the recipe will work.


I would. I would make it chocolate cake with chocolate icing with a fudge center and chocolate chips.

Sounds delicious, but too much chocolate makes me ill. That plus my diabetes.

I'm in Arkansas. If you get snow I'm going to be so jealous.

The year my son was born (1993) he was 6 weeks old at Halloween. It snowed nearly 2 feet. He was too young to go trick or treating, of course, but for me it was the best Halloween evAH.

Halloween is actually my son's birthday. He ends up getting a bunch of costumes every year which he wears throughout.


Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Halloween used to be a really big deal for me .

Now...

The last two years I had no trick or treaters. I'm in a new place, but there can't be a big Halloween thing here considering the security in place. No one could go door to door.

So this year I'm saving my cash. And going to a Dresden Dolls concert. I had plans of dressing up, but my finances are shot.

Maybe a pumpkin for carving. I do love pumpkin carving


Ah HAlloween,

Last year I made My daughter and I Harry Potter Robes for Halloween.
My son went the silly route, and bought a banana costume,... :P

This year he bought (with mostly his own money) a complete 'homemade Homecoming Spider man' costume, but now wants to get another silly costume instead of actually wearing it. :P

They (think they) are a little old to actually go trick or treating, but we enjoy dressing up and looking at all the costumes.

The highlight of the holiday for me now is the Annual Halloween Concert here on my University Auditorium Stage. The players and attendees all dress up, and I usually get together with the conductor for a gag or 2 for the show. (in the past I have put on my Jedi costume and joined Volunteers from the 501st for a lightsaber duel, and been Indiana Jones while the orchestra played the appropriate theme music.)

My wife and kids like the pumpkin carving.
But I'm the one that has to actually do all the carving. :P

I prefer pumpkin pie to pumpkin carving! :D


You're a stage manager, right? Can't you just raid wardrobe and borrow a few things for the night? :)

Too much chocolate is not a thing.

Also Halloween isn't a big deal since I still can't dress up as Orcus and go around yelling "Fight me in Rappan Athuk!"

Speaking of Rappan Athuk, gotta put my copy up for sale.

Just made a good sale on eBay , time to restock the larder


Crew, meet your new astrogator... He'll take you... Places.


I prefer Hellraiser Bloodline anyway...


Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

eBay restocked.

Sold another piece Sunday night. That makes my next month a bit more financially solvent

I must have overlooked it! Sorry! Here's a like for this one you can share with it.

I'm finding out that as I get older my taste for chocolate is lessening. But it's switched to lemon flavored confections. Lemon bars, lemon cake, lemon icebox pie....

'Stage Manager' Technically yes, among MANY other things. :P

Sadly, the wardrobe is in the THEATER department's building, across campus. While they would let me borrow stuff, I just don't usually have time to go over there and 'shop'. :)

I think this year my student staff wants to go 'Minions', the kids in the audience will love it. I can come up with a passable Gru costume. ;)


I might be a slightly ill. But only slightly.


Monkey, what about your plans to visit Europe next year? Are they still on or are they on delay because of new work?

You know? I am still putting it out into the aether that it will happen. I have faith.

Although 12 months.....

No. It will happen. So mote it MFing be!


There are so many places I'd like to visit in Europe, but there are two major problems facing me.

1) I'll NEVER be able to afford it on my disability check, and

2) Flying utterly terrifies me.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Flying would be the most costly part anyway...


My loves lemons and sours. Me...less so.
