Naked, sweaty. Sitting slung over the edge of the couch, wishing it was 20 degrees cooler.


Yay helped dad clean up leaves from cut hedges.

Went to Applebees for dinner. I find myself....amused....at the proliferation of "cajun seasoned" menu items. Applebees is, of course, not alone in this trend.

What I find so funny is that there is no one "cajun seasoning". Louisiania cuisine is not that simple. It's a multi-layered thing with many influences, the most important of which are: French, Spanish, African, and Native American. Combine those cultures, along with an overabundance of fish and game (the state didn't have the nickname "Sportsman's Paradise" for nothing), and you get some absolutely wonderful food.

Ironically, one of the people I might consider most responsible for the trend of "cajun seasoning" is Al Copeland, the founder of Popeyes. It was a trend he himself participated in, as far back as my childhood.

I WOULD FEEL BAD ABOUT THAT, BUT SOMETIMES A DAIKAIJUU HAS TO BE A DAIKAIJUU.

We need more rampaging giant lizards, so don't feel too bad.
I LIKE YOU, BLUE BIRD. I WILL SMASH YOUR THINGS LAST. AND ONLY IN AN EMERGENCY.

Jeez thanks!

Ok skipping the almost 300 posts.

Not going gaming tonight, not enough players.

Might go tomorrow. Sadly though none of the games being ran sound interesting to me. Not ready to run for that group again.

I want to move out of Kansas.

I think as soon as I have a little bit of funds stashed away I may stop this job and go back to driving a school bus for a bit. I am thinking it will pay about the same but for part time work.

You'll just have to hop on a plane.

Go to Louisiana for it, though, not Applebees. *shudder*

Friends don't take friends to Applebee's.

I went to a whiskey bar a couple weeks ago and had blackened cajun oysters and scallops. I assure you it was the real deal. My wallet said it was, too. Oof. But it went well with that aged scotch. Scotchy scotchy scotch.

I need to stop working at the food court. Anyone as prone to bursting into song as I am should not be left to their own devices for any length of time.


Do you do a waltz and a half spin too? That would rule. And draw stares. But who cares about them, right?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

No, but the fact that the songs most frequently in my head are from My Little Pony is bad enough.

Apparently, kids think I do a decent job of both Rarity and Pinkie...


I'm completely oblivious.

I'd do a much better job reciting Pinky and the Brain.

Simply because their agenda matches mine.

Just get a job at Coldstone Creamery. That should provide an outlet. It's in the food court, and employees are required to sing when tipped.

Good morning FAWTLYland!

I slept I until 6am. I feel very lazy.

Speaking of weird dreams: I had a dream last night that was très bizarre

I often dream what I call 'cinematic' dreams where I am both the main character and the audience watching the action. In this dream I was walking down a busy street in some city. It was a city of older stone buildings, so I am assuming East Coast or Europe. As I was walking a weird dizziness came over me. A small minivan taxi careened by me and struck a telephone pole, smashing it's front deeply. As a saw this I realized I didn't know what the minivan actually was. It was like all knowledge of modern life had been wiped from my memory.

Suddenly every car on the road is crashing, as the drivers forget how to drive. As I am watching this, my field of vision narrows (literally going like letterbox with black borders) and time slows down while various vehicles fly into buildings and other vehicles.

I end up in a mob of people running around looking for help. We are all reacting to any type of modern technology like it is evil magic. Then I see this ancient stone church. It has a series of clockwork cogs on its front, and several clockwork skeletons that are hopping from cog to cog as its bell chimes, like those elaborate clocks you see in some old European churches. This is the first mechanical device that I actually can comprehend, so I go into the church, hoping for answers.

Unfortunately, that's where the dream ended. I was actually interested in finding out what caused the weird effect of erasing everyone's grasp of technology.

That's really cool, Patrick!

The Basement Dwellers of Middle America greet you from the cool-ish confines of their bunkers, while the Merciless Ball of Fire blazes outside. We were talking last night about putting frozen food out on the back deck and seeing if it cooks by the time I get home from work.

I envy people who have those kinds of dreams and are able to remember them. I remember that I tend to have rather fantastical dreams, but I always lose them within the first ten minutes or so after waking. I've tried the "leave a notebook by your bed and jot down your dream as soon as you wake" but I'm so uncoordinated first thing in the morning that by the time I'm up and coherent enough to do any writing most of the dream is gone. I gave up on it after a couple of weeks of trying. =/


I hear that. I'm lucky to find my face in the morning.


Oh don't get the idea that this is a common occurance Orthos. I am more likely to be like you, not remembering a GD thing. This one was very detailed and cinegraphic, down to the details like the minibus taxi and thewrought iron fence I was walking by in the sidewalk.

And yeah, with me getting up at 1am or 3 am during the week? I aint writing down shiznick.

Shadow Lodge

Heh. I guess to be fair the last time I had a dream like that that I actually managed to remember, it became the inspiration for my current play-by-post game...

Scint stay out:
I was in a big city, very old fashioned stone and brick buildings but some modern-ness to it (a few cars, etc.). It was crowded, but all of the people around me were wearing hooded robes so I couldn't see their faces. I might have been too, but I couldn't/didn't look at myself. We were walking in a shuffling crowd toward the far end of the city, where a bunch of people were gathering around a platform.

Standing on the platform was an extremely beautiful young woman, a hulking monstrous beast, and a shrouded pirate-looking person whose gender was indeterminate from a distance. The woman was speaking, giving some kind of public discourse, and making ritualistic gestures and leading the crowd in chanting.

It's about at this point when I notice how dim the lighting is, despite that I'm outside and it seems to be the middle of the morning or so. So I look up, and the sky is mostly cloudy and blood-red. And suddenly everything goes from merely odd and curious to downright creepy. The chanting from the crowd stops being "huh weird" and becomes wrong somehow. The speaking woman remains beautiful in appearance, but gains that sort of creepy, haunted beauty you associate with really powerful fey or something equally unnatural. The monster next to her seems dreadfully intelligent despite its bestial appearance, and I swear it grinned at me. The shrouded figure suddenly seems skeletal and wasted.

Right before I'm getting up the nerve to make a run for it, someone just behind me and to the left whispers very sharply in my ear, "'Ware the Red." Then I woke up.

Morning folks.

Wait, what?

Was I conquering in my sleep again? I thought after the night I enslaved that entire planet after eating a late night burrito I was over that. :/


I could use a few prayers or good thoughts. Got a call from my mom this morning, my grandfather isn't doing well. Her and my dad leave tomorrow morning to travel to TN to see him. I would appreciate it. And please, call/hug/go see that someone you love, cause you always think there is more time, and then there isn't. I haven't seen my grandfather is almost 5 years, and it just isn't right. :(

I know what you're going through. I lost my brother and father in the space of eight months. Stay strong.
