Captain Yesterday's midweek lesson learned for the week: If we give Brad Pitt hepatitis today, we can save the world from a Zombie Apocalypse tomorrow.

Typical.

A Zombie Apocalypse is possibly imminent, and I forgot my favorite pair of boxers (among other things).

Oh my, your boxers forgotten? Now that's just rotten! Thankfully, I have just what you need! You, good sir, deserve a Thneed!

Well I liked the DLC in Dragon Age 2... so I just upgraded to Game of the Year in Dragon Age Inquisition. Oh and I finally figured out why Dragon Keep wasn't doing anything so Yay this play through should have a lot of cool new and old stuff.

I don't think DA2 would have been so bad if every map didn't look exactly the same. I have heard of lazy programming, but taking literally the same map and blocking off one corner different than last time is an entirely new level of lazy.

Hello! I hope you're all doing well.

I'm doing something silly and giving away free PDFs. Check out this thread for details.

Hopefully, I'll be back around here a little more consistently.

Wow... talk about motivation!

Two and a half months of dieting to scrape off 21 pounds... a week and a half of stretching, sit-ups, and push-ups every day to keep my body in shape as it shrinks...
...and this morning NobodysWife came in to the bathroom while I was getting out of the shower and didn't notice any difference.

Is there any better way to say, "You obviously need to keep going?"

I think not...

'eyo FaWtL. Hope everyone is well and having a good evening/night. More cold, wet and windy hereabouts, but it was sunny briefly earlier, so we had some nice rainbows. :)


Grrr... paid Dell money, and they didn't send the key to the guy - and the hard drive was entirely blank. Naturally, this means that I have to do it myself... after having paid money so I don't. >:|

Geez, for the grief you're going through you could have just FedEx'ed it to me, I would have extracted your data for you, and FedEx'ed back both drives...

...the one disadvantage is that I don't bother with the whole, "This computer must reboot exactly as it did before, and have all the shortcuts, programs, and settings."
My approach is: Data is precious, programs are re-installable.

Anyway, good luck!

I'd take you up on that now, but the guy took the hard drive to send back. Bah.

But anyway: thanks! :D

Today I had to do a Costco run during my lunch break to buy food for Impus Major's Madrigal performance, and it nearly broke my obsessive-compulsive brain.

I love going to Costco at 9:30 am on a Saturday. It's like driving during rush hour: There are a ton of you there, but you're all old pros, you know how everyone else is going to behave, and you're just trying to get in, get your stuff, and get out as quickly as possible. Once 10:30 hits, if you're not out of there, you'll scream.

Sure enough, today at lunch had all the usual culprits:

  • Stay to the right? Why would I EVER do that? You only do that when driving! I'm going to push my cart to and fro to whichever side has the stuff I want, then just proceed on that side (driving on the left, as it were), 'til something I want is on the right. Head-on cart collisions? What are those?
  • Why shouldn't I stop in the dead center of the aisle to have a conversation with my friend, who I just ran into here?
  • I'll park my cart properly on the right, walk across to the left to get something, then stop and talk, so the combined cart-and-two-people blocks the entire aisle. Why do you mind?
  • If I decide I don't want it, I'll drop it wherever I am. What do you mean it costs the store money when I leave a package of fresh lobster in the (non-refrigerated) canned dog food section?
  • I'm walking back to my car with a heavy shopping cart! Of COURSE I should be in the dead center of the lane blocking traffic instead of moving to the side! I don't want to walk near other people's cars with MY cart!
  • If I'm driving and looking for a space, of COURSE I'm going to drive in the dead center of the lane, preventing anyone from coming in the other direction. They're just competing with me for precious parking spaces!
  • I could go on, but... work!

    EDIT: I understand that shoppers who aren't as physically well-endowed as I (I'm looking at you, Freehold!) prefer to move their carts right next to what they're getting, but once they do so, they should get back to the "right lane", not drive in the "left lane" and disrupt all the "traffic" in the aisle...

    Job site was burglarized last night, but there were some anomalies:

    1. The only things stolen were a stack of pallets and the key to one of the excavators.

    2. Every single deadbolt lock on every single storage unit was hideously mangled (to the point where most of the locks had to be cut out of the doors before being replaced), but they'd taken the time to carefully close all the doors.

    3. A number of the stainless steel cylinder locking tabs on the deadbolts were twisted like corkscrews, something that a) I couldn't accomplish with a pair of pliers, a pry bar, and a vise, and b) could only have been done from the inside of each of the locked units.

    We may be dealing with an alien entity of some kind.

    It's nice that I can get to the end of the street (4 out of 5 blocks) holding my phone before my hand loses feeling from the cold.

    Usually I only get half way before it goes numb.

    The drawback of owning a touchscreen phone in winter, gotta look for those special gloves.

    Well it got up to a sweltering 52 today with 58 a distinct possibility for early next week, which is about double of what it usually is this time of year, so no complaints here, and a month and half from now when we'll be lucky if it climbs above zero, I'll remember this day wistfully, through a frosted, but rose colored window.

    Totally with you on the grocery shopping etiquette, NH. Do not understand why it's so hard to stay on the right. And most of the time you park on the right and scamper across but I admit that this ideal is impossible to achieve at my local grocery store where you park your cart wherever isn't already occupied. It's a madhouse in there. Like, all the time. I find Monday afternoons to be the slowest time but then you've got to dodge the stockers who are even worse than other shoppers.

    Mind you, I've got no business having any say about grocery shopping etiquette really. I mean, I climb the shelves like a toddler in order to reach things on the top shelf so I can't really claim to be that civilized. #shortPeopleProblems #NotReallyAGrownup. :P

    ~laughs~ I have totally climbed the shelves before. Sometimes it's just too big a hassle to summon an employee to get it down for me.

    If I don't wish to deal with crowds I've found 1 am to be an excellent time to shop.

    I am a very focused shopper, speedy and organized... as long as i have my kids with, otherwise it all goes to s%+~, i can't make decisions, and it takes me twice as long to find things. For whatever reason, i'm at my best if i have someone that can stand my inane chatter and thinking out loud, plus shopping's always better when you can do the voices of Spongebob Squarepants and company (can't do Sandy, the rest i can) while you're shopping, i don't get as many weird looks if the kids are with. :-D

    It's storming here. Started the most recent spell while I was at the grocery store. Makes one thankful for a waterproof backpack. Then again, it's a great bag in general for grocery shopping. Polished leather construction, with hardened straps and frame, riveted attachments for straps and flaps, and metal clasps and loops. Extremely durable, and carries a massive amount of weight without straining the construction. Distributes it well, too. Ex-Swiss Army issue, so it would have to be. Surplus store only wanted 30 bucks, because it's European, not American (US military packs sell for over a hundred, easy).

    Never underestimate the utility of a good backpack for shopping via public transit.
