Kajehase, at the risk of starting a debate that would make 4e vs. 3.5e seem like a civil post-church chat about, I dunno, cute little bunnies, what do you think of the proposed plans to rebrand part of Sweden as Greater Copenhagen?

We stole it from them fair and square. No give-backs!

Or to actually answer seriously, as long as it's just a tourism-cooperation thing it sounds fine to me - maybe the Danes will even learn how to speak without sounding like thay've got their mouths full of porridge.

Maybe they should consider rebranding Copenhagen as little Skane instead?


And their certainly should build more saunas.

Reading that thread about male obliviousness actually makes me feel quite competent in recognizing hints... Like, I got a few times that women were interested in me despite them not resorting to grabbing my balls or undressing in front of me...

On the other hand, it's a bit disheartening that women weren't interested in me enough to resort to more drastic measures...

Lisa, what are you doing?

*chuckles some more*

I wonder how many hints I have not only missed in the past but I am still unaware of now...

Times when I was mocked by girls didn't helped my self-esteem in the younger times, though.

Of course all of this makes me feel really old.

What I have done with my youth?

Not that I have a lot of it in the first place. I was born old, boring, stuffy, terribly literal, and without much of sense of humor. I got better though.

Too little, too late.

I was in an editing booth with a girl (who is now a runway model) in college. She suddenly bursts out with "I wish I was a slut, because it would be so much fun to f*&@ in this booth." I just said "Good thing you are not a slut then." and kept working.

Buhahhahaha!

Reminds me of a discussion with a friend from studies... She said something along the lines that she sometimes dislike the social expectations of proper behavior for a women and would like to be able to do things that wouldn't be criticized in a man... And she also happened to drench me with water when we were drinking from water fountain. I am not 100% sure if she was interested in me but there are significant chances that she was. I actually had such suspicion (weaker than it should be from the hints, though) but I was deeply in love in another woman at that time, though, so I did nothing.

I can guarantee you all that it is not infallible sign of interest from a woman. I know cause a woman that explicitly rejected my advances multiple times put her hand on my thigh. On more than one occasion.

Agreed. Not all women use the same playbook.

Similar situation here, save some slight improvement when I started hanging out with a more varied group of people. It can be hard when the *only* women you are around regularly have known you since the 9th-10th grade and you are in your 20's/30's.

We may be seeing our family a week earlier than planned, i.e. today! Huzzah! Grandparents (my in-laws), Uncle (my brother-in-law), Uncle's girlfriend (B-i-L's gf), and Cousin (my in-laws' cousin) altogether! :D

So exciting!

EDIT: Alas, we are not, but that's okay! We'll be seeing them next week! Huzzah! :D

just yesterday I was walking to work after a training in manhattan. The sun was shining, and the temperature was above freezing. As I walked down the street, snow was falling off of every rafter and tree, landing on the sidewalk with a plop. it was horrible. None of it fell on me, just right in front of me, succumbing to temperatures above 0c/32F. I picked up one collapsed snowpile and stroked it's head.

"Did we do it, Freehold? Did we snow enough? Is it the Fimbulwinter?"

"Yeah." I said. I didn't have the heart to tell her. "You did great, kid."

She melted in my arms. Things got blurry as I walked into my building.

Forget Calvin and Hobbes. Now I really want to have seen the snowpeople you made as a little kid. And your animate philosophizing Freehold-pouncing bicycle.

sounds like you needed a wing-Freehold. Then this would have worked better!

FreeholdDM in disguise, a few places down from the young couple, whispering innocuously into two-way watch radio- Hovercraft is full of eels. I repeat, hovercraft is full of eels , proceed with Operation: Small World, Large Orgasm!

as a little boy, Storm from the X-Men was my imaginary older sister/friend. I used to dream that she would make it snow for me whenever I wanted. I was a lonely child.

I still talk my bike regularly. I have noticed it doesnt talk back to me whenever other people are present. It topples over at strange intervals when I have it at home; this could be an attempt to pounce on me.

More likely it gets giddy at the sight of you and faints. Loosen its corsets and burn a feather under its nose. Or vice versa.

So. After enjoying days of x wing alliance, my computer suddenly decided my saved games don't exist, and the graphics, which were fine before, are now awful. While trying to fix this problem, the internet also decided it didn't exist. in the middle of an uninstall/reinstall situation. Grrrrr....


Seems to be an avg issue due to some complication/confusion with youtube. Attempting to rectify.

Okay...now nothings loading. Internet works, however. Trying to remain calm.


And now...nothings loading. Internet connection is still good but nothing loads.

now I have a phone for Internet and a computer that runs everything BUT xwing alliance. Huzzah.


:(

Sorry, man.


Argh...Curse the bastid who brought this sheet to me bbq.

Okay.I just got off phone with Internet provider and they are in shock that my modem is still working - they are three full generations past my model. I am going to have to replace it. This is a potential fix but I am not holding my breath.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Okay...some good news. Things are leaning heavily towards the modem being the problem. Am on computer now posting away, have switched to the basic free internet connection that comes with my cable service. Breathing shallowly, now.

Also finally editing 1000 Tiefling appearance traits. Helping to take my mind off of frustration.


From a little over 200 pages down to 105 with formatting edits. Now for the real work.

I don't understand people. This guy was just in my lobby, and asked how much we charged for a can of Pringles from the market. I told him $3. He couldn't believe that, and complained loudly to his friends. Then he asked about the bag of Cheetos. I told him those are $2.50. So he took them, gave me 3 one-dollar bills. I opened the drawer to get his change, and he told me to keep it. So, he won't pay $3 for a can of Pringles, but will pay $3 for a $2.50 bag of Cheetos. I just don't get it.

I swear, I will never try to translate Cantonese place names out of a Mandarin dictionary for an important research paper at 4:30 in the morning all hopped up on a mix of caffeine and total exhaustion again.

Oh look, the guy who hates nonstandard races is here to tell us how to implement nonstandard races. And of course he does so by saying to get rid of everything mechanically that makes the race what it is and replace it with something completely different and only tangentially related.

Of course.

I swear, I love NWN gaming sometimes, but there are certain people who make me want to bash my head into a brick wall until one or the other gives.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Some people just don't like how nonstandard races have been implemented and really want to edit them. I've certainly been there with some second ed approaches and the odd 3rd ed naked power race (twins were a particularly bad idea, at least the way the guy I was playing with was using them). Paizo has done an okay job with races, it's the new classes I have problems with.
