So.

Looks like my phone just died. No reason, no explanation, just turned off and won't go past the Samsung logo when I take the battery back out and put it back in. Needless to say, after everything that happened today, where the place I was going to this weekend for a special training on mental health first aid certification said they couldn't find the money order I sent them and so can't give me my certification, and my second job had some kind of error or glitch where they said I didn't work Pride weekend and so didn't pay me either in full or at all(still not sure which), this is...not a good day. Trying to keep it together and not put my fist through something or someONE and I am succeeding. But this is a lot of bad luck for one day.

We need booze.

Thanks to the glitch with the second job, I don't even have enough for THAT.

I know you said work had been slowing down or just plain strange of late, did something else happen to make you want booze?

No, not really. It is more like sympathy booze :) Right now, I am drinking Bailey's on the rocks in your honor.
Bailey's with ice. An old favorite. Thanks man.
Alas, it's the last of my Bailey's. I will need another bottle. I didn't realize I was so near the end of it. It's almost sad...
Is Bailey's difficult to get in the States? Cause, if so, there is a small Irish FaWtL division now. :P
It's not that hard to get really, although the larger bottles can be expensive.

Yep. It is a pretty ubiquitous offering in US bars and liquor stores.

I wonder if the formula is different in the US market. I will have to compare.

Well, if you're gonna get drunk, might as well get naked, too.

A quick Internet search reveals that all Bailey's Irish Cream is made in the same place in Ireland according to the same recipe (with recipe variants for the flavored products, but why bother?)

Still, I feel like a taste test is in order.

Hello, it is four minutes before Stupid O'clock in the morning. Only two more days of this left, unless they make us come in equally early on Saturday. Hoping not.

Here's to a relatively non-stupid weekend?

The kidlet has been kinda down lately so today we just did things that were fun for him. Mini golf, tacos for dinner, and plenty of Mass Effect time (he thinks watching me play Mass Effect is better than watching tv...go figure). He gets so lonely during summer break, and with the karate school being closed for art fair last week he hasn't been around people other than me for too many days. Hopefully today helped. Well, that and karate tomorrow evening. Hanging out with other kids should help a lot. :)

Sounds like a kid-approved fun time! Hope it helps!

Ended up buying them, too, at $10 apiece. Looks like I'm not going to be eating for the next week.

Actually, it sounds like a decent investment. But then again, I hoard books and have a few out-of-print ones too.

Eating is overrated anyway.
If you could smell the chanterelles I'm frying up for supper you'd not say that.
Chant-a-what?

my advice, hang out in the Gaslamp district, so many places there will be having comic-con-related events and stuff, and it's just a fun place, period. Great bars, great food, great nightlife

Kurka. I don't remember if I ever ate any...


Fry some in butter and put on toast. World's simplest gourmet dinner.


No Kingmaker tonight, boo.

But instead, it's my younger brother's 29th birthday. Yay!


Remind him that in one year he's officially old.

Fry some bacon until crispy first, then fry the chanterelles in the bacon grease. Gourmet heart-stoppage.

a combination of dwarfling, mother in Law who needs our help due to her health and grandmother-in-Law in the last stage of her life

Grandmother called us yesterday evening that we need to come imidiatlyto the nursing home,
so we literally dropped everything (we where prepearing dinner) and drove there, turned out she was just lonley and afraid
so in the end we cookedthe dwarflings mush for the next few days and ate freezer pizza instead of the nice dinner we had planned

my boss beeing a dick and me constantly thinking angrily about him in my week of does not help as well

dad and me went collecting blackberries yesterday,

dad knew a perfect spot right beside dirt road, no crawling through underbushes, not even walking, just collecting,
it was, as a very new German saying goes: "easy as beating Brasil"
did not make the event less thorny, so

the blackberries had overgrown a large hedge of plum and apple trees, all full of fruit no one cares about anymore,
it makes me sad to see that, only 50 years ago ahedge like that made the difference if you could get your whole family through the winter, and in many parts of the world it still does


Oh well, I had no game last night (3 players went off to a concert). But board-games scheduled for tonight, maybe even cocktails beforehand!

Sounds like the only reasonable solution to this conundrum. Better bring a bottle of the original next time I go to the States. :P While we're at it, we better be thorough.

Sorry to hear about that, hope it's just a simple rash and nothing more. Also sorry to hear about the rest of your troubles. I hope things improve for you soon.

Good luck with the jam, I'm sure it'll come out tasty. :)

Mini Journal:
When last we left our drafted heroes, they had regrouped in their home town, and went to contact some old friends for back up for plan "Don't let Atlantis land on and replace Atlanta". As it turns out, the two strongest groups we knew, the Mob and the Shepherds, had joined forces, though not all was as it seemed. Using a powerful Shepherd ability, the leader of the Hillbilly Shepherds, a man called Art, had rallied the mundane mobsters into an efficient supernatural slaying army. Unfortunately, he's a black-and-white kinda guy, no middle ground, which meant so were his enthralled mobsters. While myself and our Mage (who doesn't look supernatural to Shepherds) went to talk to Art, he tried to have our Werewolf put down. Needless to say, that didn't work out so well for his would-be assassins, partially because not all the mobsters had been taken in by his power. Teaming up with the only free-willed mobster she knew of, our Werewolf found the Godfather, who had also resisted the Shepherd's powers, mostly because he had fallen for the Werewolf and wouldn't let any harm come to her, and escaped through underground tunnels.

Meanwhile, we entered into discussions with Art, trying to get him to see the Light. He considered us as blind as we considered him, but our plan meant we had werewolves and vampires on our side when we hit Atlantis, while his meant we'd be going without any backup. (His actual plan was him and his crew going without us, but considering I was still wielding Mjölnir, that was not a likely outcome) After it was found that three of his people had died to the escaping Werewolf, I used a power of my own to free the minds of the mundane folk, and gave a rousing speech about how any can be redeemed from the Darkness, and if Art could have seen that, three warriors of the Light would not be dead. Apparently, I was pretty convincing, as more of the mobsters, and even the other Shepherds, started to lower their guns and question Art's fervor. Building on my momentum and my character's military service, I began taking command of the situation entirely, getting maps drawn up, equipment sorted, tactics decided and squads created. Even Art got caught up in the momentum and before long we had all the mobsters free and acting of their own will, and the Werewolf and Godfather returning to the group.

With our forces reunited under more tolerant management, the Godfather, Bob, called in some heavy hardware and more men. Our Mage covered using his powers to create more equipment under the guise of calling in contacts of his own. How smoothly the attack will actually go, we need to wait for next week to discover, but we're as well equipped as we can be, and we have more men going in than I originally expected we'd have, so I'm optimistic.


Crashed early last night. I feel slightly more coherent this morning, but not by much.


In better news, it is Friday, meaning the office closes an hour earlier than usual. So not quite as long a day.


Good morning folks. Still without a phone. Here's where things stand thus far.

Spoiler:
RE: Phone; this has gone from a hair-tearing out frustrating/angry situation to something of a mystery. It seems that the insurance I used to replace the phone back when I was mugged mysteriously disappeared on 12/4/12- the day I got my replacement phone. I spoke to staff at the part of the company that handles this part of the phone plan, and they said it looks like the insurance protection just didn't come over when I moved from my original phone(not the s3, the optimus) to this one. But that doesn't make any sense- I had to use the non-existent insurance in order to get this phone in the first place, otherwise I would have had to pay the market price! This is very strange, and so I'm calling them back again today to find out what's going on. This makes no sense. I know I didn't cancel the insurance, and I didn't give anyone else authorization to do it. Also, I still have the insurance on Dara's line- which makes things even more suspicious- why would it be on one line and not another?

Today at work is a BBQ we're holding for the members. Hopefully this calms me down a bit. However, tomorrow is the training where I won't be getting the note afterwards...*sigh* more frustration. Sunday is Darklight Sisterhood at least, but it's going to be weird running it without my phone.

Of course, last time I went drinking with this friend on a Friday we rolled upto boardgames quite trashed. My friend went home & then I got dealt into one brand-new game with the introduction: "At least you're not gonna win this one." Then I proceeded to completely stomp away to victory.

Good luck getting the mystery of the phone solved, and hope you enjoy the BBQ later. Also hope you have a good weekend.


YAAAAAAAAAY normal hours tomorrow~!

It's still a working Saturday, but at least I don't have to be up at Stupid O'clock. Not sure if we're working until noon, 2, or later. But normal starting time - and thus normal wake-up time - is good enough for me.


I'm getting the hang of this cooking thing, I think!


Washing dishes, less so.


Granted, that's more illogical setup than anything. Disposal sink should go on the left so you can rinse the dishes on the right!
