Damn it where'd that one go?

D'oh! I deleted it somehow.

I'm not sure, I suspect it was a reward, it's hard to say tho, it's a lot like that restaurant that Jennifer Aniston works at in Office Space, whereas everything is a "reward" to do.

I think my favorite-ever such example was getting hired by Saint Mary's College in Moraga, run by Christian Brothers, and still a very "religious" school. They showed me the office I'd be using, one vacated by a professor on sabbatical.

As I opened the desk to put things away, I found a half-empty fifth of Jim Beam in the lower right drawer.

It just made me laugh.

(Even better was that our Christmas gift was a bottle of Christian Brothers brandy.)

Agh! So many posts! I won't be able to read them. Hopefully, I missed nothing important.

I also hope everyone is doing well.

Ah yes I remember my first west coast ferry ride, they are magical :-)

And I'm a guy that lists boats as one of his top three biggest fears, so yeah they're pretty special. :-)

One of the most memorable trips of my lifetime was 3 days on a houseboat on Lake Mead. That was long before my drinking days, so I got to watch my brother and 2 of his friends go through $250 of cheap beer in 3 days. It was amazing.

Since I was sober, I piloted the boat.

So... many... stories...

And if the boat just happened to turn parallel to the waves whenever the group was feeling a bit nauseous, I'm sure it was all just coincidence.

The thread is still there. I won't go into the particulars in our little thread, though. :)

Enjoy your hard root beer!

Lol!
I'm glad Chris left the text but locked it.

When I looked before she had momentarily deleted the post so all I had to go on was her explanation for locking it.

Thanks Badger :-)

Considering how much everyFAWTL seems to love Mass Effect, FaWtL VII would clearly have to be Mass FaWtL or FaWtL Effect or something.

Man I get so confused by all the Mass Effect talk >_> I might play it one day. Probably not, I've got so many other things on my plate first, and I'm having trouble getting to all of them due to how much time NWN takes up.

I tend to catch up on my other gaming during the every-three-months quarter-end overtime in January, April, July, and October. Just do not have the time during those times to put much time into a highly-social, heavily scheduled game like NWN, so most of the time I take those months off and play other things. I might finish FFIX next month as a result. If I can get anywhere with this danged Chocobo minigame.

Mass Effect is a great story, and is especially cool since choices you make and things you do in the first game effect the second and third games, and choices in the second game also effect the third. It's definitely worth it.

It wasn't even expensive. I just wanted to ride a boat around, and wasn't really concerned at all about where I was going, so I got on the public transit ferry I'd never heard of before. I ended up in Oakland. I actually got some important shopping done there, but it was depressing how not-crowded it was. Then on the return trip I took the ferry all the way to Fisherman's Wharf, and rode a vintage streetcar to Castro to catch the light rail home.

Before I rode the ferry I dragged my Dad around the Castro. That was extra fun. He went home before I ran for the boats, though.

Hung out with CH today.

Here us a breakdown of our time together.

Time spent in greeting- 10%
Time spent catching up- 5%
Time spent talking about FaWtL-15%
Time spent talking about Mass Effect/Dragon Age Inquisition- 70%

Line of the evening -

Oh, I forgot about the street performer. There was this acrobat/contortionist at Fisherman's Wharf who's skill is about average. He made up for it with constant self-deprecation and heckling of the audience. He was actually pretty funny, so it worked for him. Got a fair sized audience and walked away at the end with a lot of tips.

I went to a Christian Brothers high school. I could totally see that happening.

When I worked at a bank, I heard a great story from an estate lawyer who had come for the contents of somebody's safe deposit box:

There was an old man who came into the bank every day and asked to access his safe deposit box and use the privacy room. No one ever knew what was in it. When he died, they opened it and found only a half empty bottle of bourbon and a glass. It was how he could get his drink without his wife finding out.

Wrong coast. :)


What the devil did I just watch? I got back to my apartment, and three fire trucks come whipping into the street with lights and sirens. Firefighters rush into the apartment building across the street with masks, air bottles, crowbars, and axes. Then two fire department command SUVs show up and people with authority start talking into radios. Then the cops show up with at least two cruisers (might have been a third), all with lights and sirens. Cops go into the building. Then a couple firefighters lug a ten foot ladder into the building. In all of this activity, there is no smoke, and no yelling or any sort of unisual activity other than the cops and firefighters. After about fifteen minutes, everybody packs up and leaves. Firefighters didn't remove anybody from the building, cops didn't arrest anybody, no ambulances were ever summoned.

Went with the lady friend to see my friends' ridiculous 90s cover band (featuring Mark and Nick from Operation Hennessey) play at a local bar. Got to sing lead vocals on "Hey Jealousy," thoroughly amusing said lady friend. All in all, not bad.

That sounds like either a drill or a false alarm to me.

Or some incident that required involvement of firefighters in their rescuers capacity, not an actual fire. Maybe someone got stuck in position where the help couldn't be provided without the use of ladder.

The dispatcher is working on a limited amount of information provided by the caller so it might end with sending more people than is necessary or considering it greater threat than it actually is. It is more costly but safer in the long run.

A few years ago I heard a commotion and learned that some girl living in the flat next to mine somehow ended hanging from the grating on the window of neighbors below... First floor, but she was somehow hanging upside down so if she would let go and fall she would broke her spine probably. The neighbor below called emergency number. The dispatcher thought that victim was impaled on the grating. There was a lot of noise, firefighters, cops...

Or it might have been false alarm.

EDIT: I have made a post here about that when this happened (or shortly after) but it was before Rosita started posting in FAWTL.


Skipping the roughly 2.5k posts (roughly 2139) to note: my dad was in a bad car accident yesterday. He's mostly okay, but I'm with him and my mom (and my eldest) at their house for the weekend to help. Hopefully, things will go smoothly.

I went to a Christian Brothers high school. I could totally see that happening.

One of my favorite (if offensive) quotes of all time came from a Christian Brother. My second year at Saint Mary's I was put in an office with "Brother Bear", a giant of a man (maybe 6'6", 270 lbs) with a no-nonsense attitude. He was one of those guys who would give you the robes off his back on a blistering day and stand there burning in the sun if you asked, yet who would mercilessly berate any student who obviously wasn't putting in the effort. It was amazing how students who wanted to learn loved him, and students who just wanted to slide by hated him.

He and I got along wonderfully. And you could see him towering in his black robes from all the way across campus.

So, we had a bit of a dress code during the school year, which grates with my usual fashion atrocities, so after the year was over, when I was turning in some final paperwork, I decided I wasn't going to "dress up" since it was off-school-year.

I threw on a pair of skate pants (loose baggy cotton pants with wild patterns -- in this case abstract faded red, white, and blue shapes on a dark grey background). I put on my brother's "joke" Christmas gift (one Christmas my brother gave my wife and me ONE long-sleeve shirt for the two of us. It was a vivid purple with an abstract nude fairy on the front, a design suited for my wife, but a shirt in my size) and I headed in, looking like a practical joke gone wrong from a thrift shop.

So I walk into the math building and get a few nice stares, then I see Brother Bear. I waved to him, he turned, his eyes got as big as saucers, and he bellowed,

Mildly Offensive:

"Good God, man! You look like a f+##!@ leprechaun!"

Darned obscenity filter! A word that also means, "Bundle of sticks".


His exclamation resonated down the hallway, and at least half a dozen faculty popped their heads out to see what was going on. I was too busy collapsing on the floor laughing to care. (Yes. I literally laughed so hard that I fell over, and, on seeing that, Brother Bear lost it as well. We really did get along well.)

*ahem* not sure what you are implying but I live in Brooklyn, and CH lives on long island...


anthropology is considered an art, but I approach it like a science, and think of it as a science. is that odd?

(then again, there are still aspects of anthropology that I contemplate deeply as if they were philosophical questions)

Shadow Lodge

I've never heard anyone refer to it as an art before, or anything other than a science. Other than casual terms like "hobby" or "field".

if you major in anthropology at uconn it's a bachelor of arts.

so it is considered an art in that sense.

Huh.

Prayers for dad, although it sounds like he is through the worst of it.

Also 2139 sounds like an awesome year. I will do what I can to make sure I am reincarnated as a human that year.
