How early would she be if she went into labor?

If she were having a single birth, the due date would be April 3. Since she's having twins, the more realistic due date would be March 12. I believe she's at about 31 weeks.

Morning, all. What did I miss?

Well, Tom showed up for his job interview, only to realize that instead of saying "Finance Manager" over the phone they had actually said "Exotic Male Dancer". Meanwhile, dinner at Max's house turned awkward after Gary complimented the great tasting chicken when what he actually was eating was Mushrooms Florentine. And, across town, Jess' efforts to get more people to move to Houston backfired when....No, wait! That's my soap opera!

Au naturale childbirth?

Phone interview today. This job sounds promising and may be a step up from my last one. Fingers crossed.

Best of luck!

Also, that was rather quick.

Many sectors of Houston are hopping. I got an offer within 4 days of initiating a job search. I might have had 2, but I let the recruiter know I wasn't interested in the other job up front.

BTW, my headhunter was awesome. They only work with IT jobs, but if anyone in Houston wants to be hooked up with them, PM me. I contracted through them at the new job until I was hired in, and have no complaints whatsoever.

My younger brother keeps trying to lure the wife and I down with knowledge of various engineering-related jobs we could get.

It's okay. The human body is a thing of beauty. Also, as noted above, it's hard to give birth while clothed.

I will pray for the safety of mother and children.

I mean, after his intro story, you had to know there was something crazy about him. :) I think he's an experimental Jaggermonster! What's your theory?

After today strip? I started to suspect something like that.

Earlier I expected him to be just totally badass determinator who is awesome by sheer power of his stubborness...

Positive waves! I know a bit of that kind of nervousness. When Sarah was pregnant with Charlie, she had some problems in the days leading up to his birth.

positive waves from me, too

Last I heard, they were about 3.5 lbs each (1.6 kg), which is encouraging. My friend is just trying to carry them to term to avoid incubator time and complications.

I just had a cool idea.......


Generally it is only a serious problem below 1 kg. Intense best wishes though.

Positive waves to your friend Jess. Every day longer is a victory.

Phone interview is complete. I think it went well and that I am a good fit for the position. I hope they agree. We shall see, in the meantime, time to start looking for more opportunities.

I tried the combat manager but I didn't like it. I find its too slow for me (although that could be the laptop I am running it on). I keep going back to this. It's the best thing for keeping combat moving quickly. I track initiative, HP, and the end of spell effects. Everything else is faster when I just calculate it on the fly.

Our serpent skull DM uses that. It works pretty well. I love hero lab, but I don't use the combat manager, and I delegate the init chart to a player and track HP etc on scratch paper.

I'm all-digital myself. Can't have anything shipped to my current location. Normally I just have Notepad open and keep scratch notes in that, but Ebon's been using the Combat Manager and recommends it highly. I just need to fiddle with it to get used to using it before trying to operate it during a session.

Cool. I've never tried it, but I don't bring a computer to the table either. I imagine it would make tracking buffs and debuffs a whole lot easier.

Hahah, no worries. Yeah I'm in TN, Scint's in the midwest, Ebon and her husband are in AZ, and we've got another on the west coast, one in the deep south, and one in west Canada. We have a prospective other player who's currently in the military and stationed in Germany who participates in PbPs, but if he ever comes stateside again might join back into the group, maybe.

Me: "Thank you, and can I get your name?"
Her: "LEE-ENN"
Me: "Thank you, Leigh Ann, and how can I help you?"
Her: "No, LEE-ENN."
Me: "I'm sorry?"
Her: "LEE-ENN. That's L Y N N. I'm from the South so I make two syllables out of it."

Downside would be that about half of them are custom homebrew races. That and the fact I haven't gone beyond "LG M elven sorcerer 1" with any of them.
