Wow. That is some commitment, to do backbreaking labor with plants you're allergic to.

I was just joshin' ya man. Text tone conveyance problem, ya know? Didn't mean to come across mean. Should've thrown a few smiles in there. :-)

I think I have finally figured out what will make a cat listen to me. This is what a cat will listen to from a human.

Wrong. Any cat in its right mind will listen to the sounds of a human using a tin opener.

In her old age Sammy doesn't come running for the sound of a can being opened. Instead she gets upset if she doesn't hear a can being opened at feeding time.

We know when pies or other baked goods, are done, when our Beagle dutifully starts begging at the oven. :-)

I work tonight, only 38 degrees today.

But tomorrow, tomorrow, the ass drops out of winter and it's over 50 degrees from here on out.

After the pies are done baking, I like to take the leftover crust trimmings, brush with any leftover egg wash, sprinkle them with brown sugar or cinnamon & sugar, and bake them on foil for a couple minutes until cooked through. My own little reward that I don't have to share.

Pea Bear has decided she is a vegetarian, unrelated to Redbeard's current vegetable feast.

She of course, has our full support. :-)

Considering he built them a cottage with a bed, torches, a pig, and pet wolf, then locked them in, I guess we'll find out...

I missed the contest.

I do have a tote bag full of samples, though, and the rosemary garlic sourdough bread we bought is amazing.

They figured it out, had a glitch in the system that told it the Ethernet port was disconnected when it wasn't, evidently only a few systems had it, all patched up now, but an external hard drive is on the payday shopping list now, as well as a new internal hard drive.

God I like hippies, but the hatred in the heart of these people for those who disagree with their passions is palpable. It's sad, really.

They've lost their way.

My dad still adheres to the old ways, but too many people are too bitter.

Edit: I blame [redacted]

I've never met a bitter Quaker/member of the Society of Friends. Just doesn't seem to be something they do.

Does that fall under the FaWtL Ban-Bike? If so, apologies.

Break in the constant rain means I finally got to do planty-wanty stuff in the (very damp) back garden.

Carrots
Onions
Peas & runner beans (in krutty plastic mini greenhouse)
Garlic
Chilis, sage and spring onions (being propagated indoors)
Potatoes (getting chitted)
Tomorrow, ginger. I have my doubts that that'll take, but we'll see.

In addition to flakiness being an issue, punctuality is not the gamer's strong suit, I have learned over the last decade and a half.

Supposed to meet a new potential group ten minutes ago. I've been here for 25, because I always show up places 15 minutes early, because I'm not inconsiderate and know making a character takes time. How long should I sit around before leaving and putting up a bad review on Meetup?

I'd give them a half hour.

Yes, very annoying.

My mom was once three hours late to pick me up from guitar lessons because she started talking to someone on the way out of Wal-Mart, and lost track of time.

She didn't even know the person.

So yeah, big fan of punctuality myself. :-)


2 people marked this as a favorite.

I left 20 minutes after the scheduled appointment, when not one single player showed up. I do not want to play with a group of flakes and /or people so inconsiderate as to not post a message in their recruiting board saying they are going to be more than 20 minutes late to the scheduled meeting time. I am a grown ass man, & I do not need that kind of juvenile foolishness. I can understand one or two late, but a whole group? F~!~ that mess.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

I think I am just getting too old to put up with this kind of nonsense, or at least I don't have the patience to want to put up with it. I'm willing to forgive this kind of thing with my actual friends that I know who play 8 hours every other week, but with strangers who only play for 4 hours, it is kind of ridiculous to start off like that. I am a punctual individual. If I say 5 o'clock, I will be there at 4:45 or at the latest maybe 4:55. If you wanted to start at 5:30, you should have said 5:30! That's just how I feel in general about almost everything, not just gaming.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Oh, don't get me started. At my company, PMs and executives, including the CEO, call All Hands meetings for their groups and think nothing of being 15-20 minutes late, leaving hundreds (or even thousands) of people sitting there idiotically on hold.

I very strongly feel that if you call a meeting, and you are late for any reason other than a bona fide emergency, you should be docked in pay salary according to the combined salary of every single person's whose time you wasted.

For a meeting with 2-3 people? Well, they each make $60/hour, you were 15 minutes late, so it's a paltry $30 fine. ($1/minute for 15 minutes for 2 people).

But for a team of 400-500 engineers? The fines run into the thousands.

For the All Hands of over 100,000 employees? THAT might get the friggin' CEO to be a bit more considerate of our time...


2 people marked this as a favorite.

And yeah, Redbeard, I'm totally on board with you. If I'm meeting people for the first time and they're over 10 minutes late with no notice, I just leave. I have no time for people who have no consideration for my time.

I hear there are some young people gathering on your lawn. Use your cane and voice to chase them off.

I love Nobodyshome's idea for a fine and I would vote it into law if given the chance.

Great! I'm only 3 minutes late to work.. that's okay, it'll be easier to linger in the car when it warms up.

Turns out we were busy, and kids are messy savages with no regard whatsoever.

Luckily, I don't give a s**~, and I get off at 9:30 no matter how trashed the store is (it's really bad).

Docking pay is almost always illegal in California, though. Certainly in this case.

Okay. As my wife was quite ill this weekend the game was cancelled, I am going to give Roll 20 a try. Kingmaker has reached a point where we are organically deviating from the Kingmaker book, and I need a way to keep all of the things I/we have done to the Kingmaker world in one place so I'm not looking up stuff on the wiki every five minutes and getting something wrong because I forgot person x or y was killed.

Just finished a 6-hour Roll20 session. Not nearly as good as in-person, but waaaay better than nothing!

Not here, forecast says at least 54 degrees for the next week.

We might get a cold spell, and we might get another snow storm, but by and large, my positive spring dreams have choked out winter and ditched it behind the old oak tree.

Where, surely, no one will ever find it.
