Taking the bus downtown!

It's amazing what will entertain the kids these days. :-)

Well, younger brother's got my back and he leaves tonight after dinner, so that reckoning is today in terms of shunning NobodyWife. The money is far more trivial, but indicative of complete a$$hattery. I really don't want to put her on the spot, but lisamarlene and Whingy Wizard pay what they can every single time, and it's not easy for them. If she'd let me, I'd just pay for her. But she's a decent person and insists on paying something. Older brother retired at 35. He can afford $20 for drinks. So when he doesn't pay his share I get pissy.

Have you considered challenging them all to a duel at high noon.

They'll be so baked, you're sure to win!

Good strategy rysk hugging her will make you a human shield and as a succubus your dr should have no trouble absorbing a bullet with minimal damage.

Mostly i'm just impressed she can identify the caliber from sound

Well, she was in the Navy. They use 5.56 there too.

I was in the Navy in the barest sense of the word. Got seperated out for medical issues before I was in long enough to get an actual discharge. I have fired a 5.56, but as a civilian.

I find 5.56 is pretty distinctive. It doesn't really sound like any hunting caliber because of its size (a 5.56 is a .223 in stupid American measurements, but it's got more oomph than a .22 long rifle, and is smaller and weaker than basically any other hunting caliber), and the 5.45 Kalashnikovs (only other caliber I can think of that's a similar size and power) have this weird gas venting system typical of all Kalashnikovs that gives them a very unique sound (and who the hell has an AK-74 around here, anyway?).

Basically, it comes down to nothing else really sounding like a 5.56. Don't ask me to identify hunting or pistol calibers.

It was probably something minor. If police arrived so slowly(or they could just be sucky). I'm don't even flinch around here when I Hear a gun shot. (usually hunters or idiots.)

We don't have hunters, and our idiots don't usually have guns.

Judging by the sound, it was from Rich People Hills. Not exactly gang territory. Honestly, it probably was the cops and I just didn't hear the sirens, but in that case they didn't hit anybody. Could also be a civilian with an AR15, which, given the lack of a shooting, would leave us with somebody trying to kill a coyote or an idiot (or both, really, considering how dense Twin Peaks is).

Bad day today. Not much sleep last night thanks to multiple subluxations (stopped counting how many after it hit double digits) in my ankle, hip, and shoulder. So much pain now. My to-do list for the day has been scrapped. I hate this. :(

The Navy does't do basic rifle marksmanship. Just pistols and shotguns.

So the kidlet has been in the same school district since he started, but he's moved around a few schools, one from us moving and most from just moving up in grade level. So one school for kindergarten and first grade, then another for second grade, then another for 3rd to 5th grades, then middle school which he just finished. He starts high school in the fall. Every year prior to this the communication from the schools has been just awful. They wouldn't send out information about the start of the year until the week before if that. There were never supply lists or anything. Basically everyone showed up on the first day with no idea where they were supposed to go and what they were supposed to do. This would be followed with annoyed emails from the school after the first week because parents were doing drop-off wrong and so on. At this point it's not even worth getting upset about. We stopped even kind of hoping for anything approaching organization years ago. We just roll our eyes and move on. But! Today I got an email from the high school the kidlet will be attending and it had all the information. All of it! Registration dates, places, drop-off charts so parents know where to go in the fall, schedule for when breaks will happen in the upcoming year, important testing dates. The whole shebang. I'm not even sure what to do with myself. No guessing games or anything. And at the beginning of the summer, too! These guys rock!

We got Pea Bear's standardized test scores back, she is ever so slightly above average.

Which is actually pretty good considering how much she hates standardized tests and how little effort she puts into them. :-)

Yes, they do. Refreshing, isn't it, to be dealing with educators that care that much?

Well, the talk with Evil Sister-in-Law's best friend has been had, and she, being reasonable, is going to pry to try to figure out ESIL's mental malfunction. The good news: She agrees there probably is one, and she'd like to see things fixed, too.

Now, the dinner bill...

Oh, the educators care. It's the administration that needs help. :P

The principal at the high school is very involved and keeps everything organized. And seeing evidence of this already makes me a very happy camper. :)

Yeah, watching my ESIL and best friend at work today makes me realize we're just from different worlds.

On the young woman clever enough and resourceful enough to start her own paddle board stand at the lake: "I asked her whether she'd give us a group discount, and she asked about the size of the group, so I told her it depended on the size of the discount."

On returning to Omar's: "Didn't the waitress last night offer us free zucchini fries if we came back? Where is she? I'm going to make her give us two."

It's the world of money as a competitive sport, where short-changing the other guy is "winning". There's frugality, and there's trying to stick it to someone just because they're unfortunate enough to be in the service industry, and you can save a few bucks by taking it out of their pockets. (Yeah, I know waitstaff can comp stuff easily, but I'm sure there's a limit.)

NobodyHome does not approve. -10
