I am now requesting that Paizo provide a thumbs-down service just for this one post.

EDIT: Yes, I'm a man who has said, "I'd rather have cats than nice furniture", so I may be biased...

You couldn't have said it better.

Sure he could have!

He could have said it something like,

Something better that he could have said wrote:
Cat's - and, in fact, any pets whatsoever - aren't really necessary, but having them can be a very nice luxury (for some), and they can be emotionally endearing (and thus good to have for various reasons); it is up to each person to decide if the hassle (in such things as actual monetary costs, time and energy sinks, allergies they cause self or others, painful emotional farewells, Christmas or other events - like parties - being frequently "interrupted" - be it by bow-and-or-package-eating, tree-tipping, food-stealing/licking, or whatever else - or otherwise disturbed, and so on) are worth the benefit.

... but most people have far too much emotional attachment to their own opinion of the creatures for that kind of analysis (which wasn't very good or thorough, mind, but still there), and so tend to come down hard on <PET KIND> or those who come down hard on <PET KIND> - most often (especially around FaWtL or similarly friendly places) using humor as a method of revealing a lack of genuine malice in statements that otherwise would be perceived as an attack against someone else.

*cough*

And then there's me. Who tends to over-explain things; in this particular case, because I think it's funny, even when it's probably not to most people. But hey, at least I'm mildly entertained!

... and now back to Shrek: the Musical~!

Oh! And reminding FaWtL to sign up for taig's Twelve Days of Third Partymas Year Two! Make it less likely (statistically) that I'll win anything and more likely (statistically) that you will*!

I don't mind cats, they just can't ever live in our house.


Hey!

This contains terrifyingly awful and disturbing animated imagery~! You should watch it for good news and hope for humanity!

Truly, there his hope for us, as a species!

To some extent, the ATB was "more" button-mashing than "traditional" turn-based system - you had to beat your opponent, and if you just hung around instead of rapidly navigating the system, you'd get hit before you could do the same.

Though I greatly prefer FFT's actual turn-based system, the ATB was clearly a precursor to the more "active" battle systems.

you prefer something from final fantasy tactics?

It has been three days without the cats knocking down the Christmas tree! Another new record! :)

Starting to entertain the faintest glimmer of hope that this tree might last more than one year. It is more substantial than the trees I usually buy. But there's still a lot of December left for the kitties to dash that hope along with the tree, so I am not yet entertaining actual optimism.

check the cats to make sure they aren't robots or something.

Well, it's going to be a busy, busy weekend for me, so a few notes before I vanish for 72 hours:

  • Blue Apron was indeed significantly improved by the addition of wine and sausages. But then, what isn't?
  • Impus Major's teachers are on a massive homework binge, and it's the kind that you hate as a parent, as a former student, and as a former teacher. "Write out the electron shell configuration for this element. Now this element. OK, got it? Understand how it works? OK, now do it for 50 more elements!" (And I kid you not -- it's 5-6 PAGES of repetitive data entry per assignment. Getting pretty upset about it.)
  • Impus Major is performing in the school's Madrigal tonight and tomorrow. Woo hoo!
  • In addition to donating a bunch of food, I volunteered to chaperone tonight. Apparently, this is considered the Worst Job in the World. For 3 performances we have around 36 kitchen workers, 12 door workers, all the food we needed, and... ONE chaperone. Me. It will be interesting to find out how I am supposed to monitor the girls' room. Knock loudly and ask, "Are you behaving in there?"
    Of course, it's just a bunch (60?) of high-school-age girls in medieval costumes with a giant room all to themselves. What can possibly go wrong?
  • Anyway, time to get the kids out the door on a FRIDAY!!!!

    Yup. Our glorious state of California does allow alcohol shipments through the mail, but you have to have a 21+ year old at the delivery location sign for the package, and you can't just leave the package if nobody's home. Naturally, the vendor needs a license for this, too, and Blue Apron may not want to get that kind of beer and wine license (I hear it's a lot harder to get than a brick and mortar one). And if Blue Apron is multi-state, they have to deal with muntiple such licenses and the fact that a lot of states don't allow shipping alcohol through the mail at all.

    No 500-lb birds here, but our deer crossings handle weigh-ins at about that rate. But then you get to tack on the weight of the vehicle involved.

    Ah, the whitetail deer -- deadliest animal on the North American continent.

    Direct marketing companies should be forced by law to advertise their job positions as the sales jobs they are.

    Hint - if you have to trick someone into taking a sales job, they're probably a s%#@ty salesman and you're wasting your time and theirs.

    Ugh... I remember a few years ago I dropped in the middle of the training (i.e. second day) at company servicing a phone company.

    The lady there asked me: why have you applied in the first place?

    It has been four days without the cats knocking over the Christmas tree! We're not quite sure what to do with ourselves now.

    Today it had something to do with my having a terrible day-long migraine and one of the kitties decided she was going to nurse me back to health by laying on my lap and refusing to let me get up. As soon as the migraine let up a little she got up like, okay, human, you're better now. It was very sweet.
