Quite some few years back, I'd read a book. I recalled it being quite interesting, if dark and mildly disturbing. I'd always wanted to read the rest of the series it seemed to be buoy for, but I'd unfortunately forgotten both title and author. Good news! Today, I finally (nearly two decades later) found the book! Even better, I found the name of the series! The series consisting of... just the one book.

Dang it, Weis, it's one of only two solitary books in your career, and remains the only one implied to be part of a bigger series. >:|

Come on! Two decades... for nothing!

Oh, well. Thanks for contributing so much to D&D... I suppose... if you're into that sort of thing...

Bother-it-all, FAWTL, I was bearing my soul, my pain, not the rest of me!

*re-dresses*


Speaking of fantasy literature, I was always find of Barbara Hambly. Her Winterlands books, despite being semi-depressing, were quite influential on me at one time, though I'm uncertain if I've read Knight of the Demon Queen or not, and I've certainly not read beyond.

Lois Tilton's short story Hands remains a major favorite of mine with respect to fantasy.

I love Richard Lee Byers and Paul S. Kemp so much I will read their stuff even if it is in forgotten realms.

It took me four minutes to come up with nothing.

Disgraceful.

Dude, I'd put clothes on for a full ten minutes before you made your request. Keep up, sir.

There's a problem. It was published in 2007 - around the time I started running out of time.

I literally ran out of time to read about that time, barely managing to finish Shadow Storm and similar novels.

:/

I need to read this and Name of the Wind at some point, but, uh, looks like I've got a loooooooot of reading to get to it.

One of my favorite lines from the day was when they were trying to take the group shot sans parasols, so they made everyone fold up their parasols, and a cry came out from the back, "Aaaaaah! I'm melting! Meeeeeelting!!!!!!!"

Fun useless fact: Polish language adopted the early French parasol term and never bothered to invent a separate word for rain-proofing umbrella, so we use parasol against rain. Well, that or parasolka (feminine form of the same, used for smaller umbrellas, originally intended for women but now commonly used by all).

Toy shop talk!

- Rubiks Cube is the trendy toy this spring.

- Ghostbusters toys are out! Looks like they're going full on for 80s nostalgia. Big surprise I know.

- propaganda video is literally civility common sense.

- this other guy talking about bikes both sticks his tongue out too much and uses his hands too much.

- the most rewarding part of my job. Doing the safety check and taking the bikes up to the kids.

- the most annoying. Haggling with the parents over the ten dollar assembly fee. If you're not going to build it yourself, don't b!%!& about having to pay someone to build it for you.

FLAGGED MY OWN POST.

GROSSLY OFFENSIVE FAILURE OF QUOTE BOXES.

CAN'T EDIT.

I WILL NOW RAGE AT EVERYONE, ESPECIALLY THE PEOPLE NOT RESPONSIBLE, AND CLAIM NO RESPONSIBILITY AS MY OWN FAILURE, AS I DON'T KNOW HOW CUSTOMER SERVICE WOOOOORRRRRRRRRKKKKSSSSSSS~!

Break time ends too quickly. Too quickly indeed.

(In case it wasn't obvious - and depending on how anyone's day has gone, it might not be, while I did flag my post, the above post was a joke, more or less for captain yesterday's and the local Paizo customer service representatives' benefit. I feel you guys. Hard jobs are hard.)

Why on earth would I think you ever meant to offend. :-D

I've got thicker skin then that man, all good. :-)

I'm still going to have to FAQ that however.

Dark Souls 2, Dragon Age: Inquisition, or Final Fantasy 13.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Inquisition. Final Fantasy hasn't been good since 10, and Dark Souls is just an exercise in masochism.

That's pretty much what I was thinking.

But yes, I have one of those to. But only to make sure the world appreciates the epic awesomeness of Ozzy F@$%ing Osbourne!

My good sir, I never questioned that. It is a generic non-targeted disclaimer, as I can see Poe's law taking effect for tired people or those who've just had a day that lends itself to that kind of perspective, or, you know, just any person who reads it wrong.

(I once actually had someone in face-to-face real life think I was being serious with exactly that line, once; the, "as I don't know how customer service works" part (or something very similar) spoken and all.)

((True story, and I'm not proud of it, but another such moment happened stour local Melting Pot; it worked out in the end, so it's funny, now, sort of. It was literally being closed down because the rent was too, ah, high (and it was being increased). It was sad because we loved the place. Some friends of ours were visiting, and we managed to get there either the last night they were open, or the night before. It was extremely awesome as always. At the end, we paid, started to leave, and I was thanking everyone, as they'd really done everything perfectly. Kids had to go potty, and we got stuck waiting in-Resteraunt. I saw a manager girl sitting there looking kind of exhausted, so I thought a joke might cheer her up - stupid idea, but we were all tired and waiting for the kids to go potty - idleness and exhaustion make for bad decisions. Anyway, I walked up to her greeted her, and mentioned, in a completely matter-of-fact manner, with my best joking face on, that I had some serious complaints about the experience - I mentioned that the wait staff couldn't read my mind or the future, that the food was undercooked (this was a fondue place - you cool it yourself), and a few other nonsense complaints, finishing with, "...and I'll never come back here, again!" Instead of the tired smile, the lady looked really concerned and unable to answer. It was then that I realized... she hadn't gotten the joke. Then I was quickly stammering, trying to explain, poorly. Fortunately, there was another nearby employee, a friend of hers, that was watching and had gotten it, and found the whole think hilarious (he'd been laughing, softly, until she obviously felt bad). He was able to clear things up quickly and easily. But I felt badly that I'd (however temporarily) made her day a bit worse. Fortunately, it all ended in smiles and a chuckle.

Dark Souls fan?

How about some Dragon Age?

Mass Effect more to your taste?

Oh, he also did some Batman songs, a Bloodborne one, two Witcher songs... Last time I checked, he had over 120 songs made. All with videos. All done by the ONE PERSON.

In truth, as a Baptist, I don't have the actual urge (to say such)... but I have enough people in my life that do (notably my wife and all my in-laws on her side) that I do automatically hear it. :D

Yeah Scint is Catholic so it's reactionary for her.

Though she tells me that the wording has changed slightly in some recent years.

There was a whole thing. A lot of the Latin was heavily re-translated for English, which caused quite a stir among certain groups of folks.

Damnit. I have reactions to this, but I don't want a flaming bike thrown at me.
