But would you have waited another 49 posts for the dramatic effect of the . . . naked breach?

Those two words feel . . . awkward. And spot-on.

Boats are fine, as long as they're dry-docked. It's the water that bothers me.

To be honest, I just followed Orthos in one day and surprisingly no one has kicked me out (yet).

Orthos fussed at me until I started posting here.

Back from dentist.

Upper left six done.

A dark gaping hole in the side of upper left five discovered. Apparently it looks bad. A medicine put inside, need to check in three months to replace medicine, clean the area, and decide if it's time for root channel or not. Hopefully not because root channel is beyond my financial capabilities.

I need to go in late November to finish upper right six anyway.

It will be also time for a new dentist. The one who done my teeth this year will leave for another clinic.

Also, the filling put inside my tooth tastes awful.

We finished off Book 2 of Skull & Shackles yesterday. Does that count?

And yes, the "Pink Pantsless One" joke is getting quite out of hand, with entire discussions about how, "Yes, of course the ship has plenty of pants, but none of them are in your size," or, "It's a ship full of women's clothing! Sink it! It can't be worth anything!", and finally yesterday when we seized a bunch of bolts of silk and I started confiscating a few bolts the captain said, "Oh, no you don't! You're going to use those to make PANTS, aren't you?"
"No, M'Lord Captain. I'm making myself a dress."
"Well, Hrrmm. Arr... I guess they not be pants, so have at! But I'd better see some legs!"

Pesky randy captains!

Just make sure your "dentist" isn't a talismonger. Dragon's tooth drilldust is worth almost as much as kaiju bone powder.

First day as a full time TKD student!

Ho-Lee-CRAP.

I have been there every single Lessing, doing the full daggum workout routine right along side the other students each time. Each. Time.

Somehow. Somehow... today... a daggum test day, where a third of the class consists of contemplating forms and watching other people complete them, a third is practicing them, and only the remaining third is actual workout...

Somehow today I could not daggum breathe. It's been a half hour and I'm still dehydrated. And above had plenty (but not too much) good liquids (and no bad ones) today, before class! Yes, including water! What the heck?!

Where was my air?! Where was my ability to place oxygen in my lungs?

What about that liquid that I'm supposed to have?! Where the heck dos that go?!

What. On. Earth.

How did I somehow grow less healthy as of today after two months of working out and eating better?!

Oh, well, there's the thumbnail sized hail (pummeling the car, of course) straight line winds, and super torrential rain.

I stand corrected. :-)

What. On. Earth.

How did I somehow grow less healthy as of today after two months of working out and eating better?!

Well that solved that. Somehow. I have no idea how, mind you.

A single half cup of sweet tea and my everything is suddenly insta-regulated. I'm no longer dehydrated; I'm not panting/exhausted (and sugar highs are supposedly not a thing?); and I'm actually feeling healthier than I have all day.

Did... did a childhood of Lipton somehow Nuka Break me, bro?

That would be a weird super power to have. I'm trapped between disappointment, thrills, and mehness matching the mediocrity of it all.

EDIT: Worth noting, this isn't even a case of, "No duh, liquid makes you not thirsty." as, you know, my first stop was a water fountain for water. I had as much as I could get. And, though I submit that the water was no longer cold, neither was the tea - I get my tea with no ice, and, given that it's brewed fresh, that makes it pretty warm (though this was slightly warmer than room temperature). So... nope. No clue.

First day at the new job was today. My first full-time, for reals white collar, shirt-and-tie-and-evurthin' job ever. My first full-time non-temporary job in almost five years.

Pros:

1. I got an hour lunch break, like a freaking adult. I haven't had this at a workplace, ever, in almost 20 years of working.

2. The air was set at a comfortable 71 degrees.

3. Both of my bosses seem really, really nice.

4. The corporate culture of the branch seems really cool. Very professional and nice, but without being anal retentive.

5. Breaks are treated in an adult fashion. In other words, when you want or need to stop working, do so, but please come back when you no longer need a break. They are not timed. They are not scheduled. Just get someone to cover you if you need to. Again - like a freaking adult. Again - never in almost 20 years of working previous.

6. I get vacation days from day one. Seriously. I have two weeks coming in January, and I have been pro-rated days I need to use before this year is over already!

7. So far, everyone I met has been nice. The company pretty heavily pushes the "act like adults and we will treat you like adults" philosophy, and really really dislikes people treating each other with disrespect, so I believe this will continue with time.

Cons:

1. Financial industry regulations are SO boring to learn all at once.

2. I need to buy comfortable dress shoes, as the ones I have look nice but are not at all comfortable. I won't have money for a few paychecks for this, due to many bills and debts being paid from half a year without work. I also need more dress pants, but I can wash the ones I have more frequently until then. This isn't really a con for the company or the job, just a situation I have to deal with.

All in all, I'm really happy and excited. :-D

Also, I'm sad I missed Orthos. I liked him. He seemed like a guy I would hang out with in person if I had the opportunity.

I strongly recommend Rockports, though it's been quite a few years since I've had to wear dress shoes. The Rockport walking shoes were relatively inexpensive for dress shoes (around the $100 mark), I was able to stand all day in them (corporate trainer = 10 hours solid standing in front of a class), and they lasted well.

I strongly recommend AGAINST Mephistos. They're supposedly the "bees knees", but at $500+/pair, I expect them to feel like walking on little pillows. Honestly, the Rockports are comfier, even after taking the time to break in the Mephistos properly. What good's a lifetime guarantee on a shoe that'll last your lifetime because it's not comfortable enough to wear on a daily basis?

So my boss asked me to stay late tonight so that I could train two contractors who need to make emergency repairs onsite...and then he hijacked the training before it began, leaving me sitting on my hands for an hour. Then at 6:30 he says "Hey TS, would you whip up some last minute paperwork before you leave?"

WHY DIDN'T YOU ASK ME THIS AN HOUR AGO I COULD HAVE BEEN DONE AND GONE BY NOW?!

Spoiler:
And then I came home and broke a knife on cheese. Velveeta cheese. All kinds of first world problems for me today!

Forms work is usually the hardest, IMO. You may be holding your breath in places without realizing it. So many things to concentrate on at once, it's easy to lose track of breathing. Also, because forms bring together so many other lessons. They are often much more physically demanding than they look. When I first started, the masters would have to stop me and tell me to go get a drink of water because I would work myself so hard during forms that I would collapse. I'm better at pacing myself now, but it still happens sometimes if I get really focused on something tricky. I wouldn't worry too much. Just remember to breathe. :)

Edit; and the sweet tea worked because electrolytes. You lose more than water when you sweat a lot. Also this is why you should wash your uniform frequently. Also why martial arts studios often smell like sweat socks. Blech. ;P

We were saying last night that the Smell of HEMA is, essentially, sweat and Febreze (the jackets take about 3 weeks to dry if you wash them, given the thickness of the padding, so it's regular applications of fabric cleanser and/or disinfectant and/or inexpensive vodka in a spray bottle, if you don't want to reek like a dead mammoth in a heatwave)

I've got someone else enthused about sword & dagger, too, which is a good thing.

And congrats to TGTG :)
