Did you already have that alias or did you just make it?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Yes.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

HA! ok.

Either way Good job.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I just made it. It seemed fitting. Besides, I don't have enough aliases.

I'm up to 20. I think I have one for any foreseeable situation, and some unforeseeable ones.

Looks like I have 44. Just because.

Gran can you tell me why people seem to think hotels keep super secret back-up rooms for emergency purposes?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Because they're stupid?

I don't know, man. But I've been asked the same thing about a dozen times tonight. Also, I really wish there was some way to have the phone auto-answer and tell people we're sold out.

I miss the No vacancy signs. Apparently that is something that hasn't been done since the 90's


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I've been known to tape a sign to the front door to chase people off, but it doesn't stop the phone calls.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I have done that but I am not suppose too. Stupid reasoning. yeah we need an answering machine. I have to say a ridiculously long greeting every time I answer the phone too. Just so afterwards I can say Nope sorry we are sold out.

Have either of you (Vid or Gran Rey) ever been tempted to go full Basil Fawlty on a customer?

Same here. "Thank you for calling [hotel] in [city]. My name is [gran rey de los mono]. How may help you?" With a smile in my voice, of course. F!~!ing b$#+&~%&.

I've had to raise my voice a few times. Not quite a yell, but close. I haven't insulted anyone to their face, though I've come close to being caught once or twice when I flip them off as they walk away. I have not pretended to be Hitler when there were a bunch of Germans around.

So, I guess the answer is no.

NAw nothing they can say can upset me. I even had a lady call me The devil once.

The guest in the room next to hers called me complaining that she was singing (its 1AM btw).
So I immediately called her and as nicely as possible asked her if she would stop singing that she is disturbing her neighbor.
She said what you mean the rooms aren't sound proof.
me: of course not.
her: Well devil I won't stop singing!
Me: mam people are trying to sleep I need you to stop singing or you will have to leave.
Her: I won't leave and I won't stop singing I rebuke you devil!
Me: Ok I'm going to have to call the police then.
Her: No I'll Call the police!
and she did she in fact beat me to it. they went up stairs and removed her for me. Apparently she had a warrant for her arrest too.

Was I upset? Naw I got to tell hilarious story to everyone at work. She actually came back a week later during my shift asking me for a room. I laughed real hard that day. (no she didn't get the room)

The other fun thing is she smoked in a non-smoking room so we got to charge her about 250 dollars extra for the cleaning costs.

Edit: that was in fact the first time I have been rebuked in a biblical sense btw.

Sorry I haven't been more active or in a more fun mood lately. Life has been handing some people around me some rough moments and I haven't been taking them as well as I should. That combined with the general low level depression that comes from lack of sleep (night shift sucks, despite the much needed money) have all made me not be in as great a mood as I would like.

It is more like my sleep deprived depression is making them worse.

I personally have adapted well to the night life.

I assume you have problems sleeping during the day yes? Do you use black out curtains? Also do you keep the same hours. Try and go to sleep at the same time every day. building that habit really helps.

The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher is a very good book series.

I know some people that do the night shift thing will swap back to days on their days off and that sort of thing. that is a mistake see. it messes you up and you have to start over every time you do it.

I'm so sorry, Sharoth. I'll be keeping you in prayer.

This is true! :/


Also, if you like Starfinder, and like Pathfinder Unchained Skill Systems, I've applied two out of the three of the latter with Starfinder!

Check it out and give feedback!

... unless you don't want to! XD

And now: back to sleep! Woo!

Oh, right!

Just in case anyone is interested...

... movie reviews with TL!

Yyyyyaaaaaaay-?

Trolls: This film was, surprisingly, more fun than I really thought it would be, though, admittedly, much of that was the soundtrack. The story was, if not entirely trite/overused, very troperiffic, and, unfortunately, more than a little preachy at times. Spoiler: part of me kept wondering when the subversion would come, and, although it's clear that no one is 100% correct 100% of the time in-film, at the same time, it's pretty clear that one particular outlook is considered superior, even when all outlooks are kind of cartoonishly exaggerated. Surprisingly dark and twisted at times, despite being childishly preachy. I want to mention, briefly: each of the technical elements - voice acting, animation, sound work, lighting, other special effects (yes, even in an animated film) were pretty much the best of the three films I'm about to review, though they didn't all quite come together to make the best film experience. Over-all, it was an enjoyable experience, though not going in my top of forever films by any margin.

Sing: Once again, the soundtrack was the best thing about this film. That said, this was a really solid experience. One thing that holds it back, a bit, is that the film is rushed, at times, trying to get you to care about each person. But let me slow down on the way to telling you about why it should slow down. Sing is, first and foremost, an ensemble film - it has an ensemble cast, and, though there is a point or two at which the film seems to focus on the koala, it's really important to note that it's not his film, it's a film for all of them. And here is the first hiccup: each of their stories is compelling, and each endearing, but we're not given enough time with any of them. The most we're given time with is the koala, Moon, but even he gets brushed over in the haste to show us everyone else, and we're often left guessing at his motives or ideas right up until it's clarified to those in-character - not automatically a bad thing, but a few elements felt like they needed audience clarification (like his reasoning for choosing certain applicants over others; we get some, but not quite enough). To make it worse, though I will suggest it's necessary, each of the "stories" of the characters are stories we've seen before - each character is definitively an archetype of character, given uniqueness mostly due to being their particular animal, rather than their particular story. And I mean it: yes, each has a unique name and personal history; they are also literally fill-in-the-blanks for a given well-tread archetype. This is a deliberate choice on the part of the writer, and not only is it okay, I'm going to suggest it's a good idea and even important as a shortcut for us to relate to them; unfortunately, it comes with the downside of them not fully growing beyond the archetypes they represent and never feeling as fully fleshed out as we'd like. The second hiccup is the world-building. Now, obviously, Zootopia is a very high standard to live up to, but the opening credits actually started to to exactly that! ... which was then dropped and ignored for the rest of the film, until the end, and, even then, it was only touched upon. Alas. That said, the charm and good will of the film won me over. The half-way point where everything seems at its worst - you know the one in these films, yeah, it's that one - was, in fact, a marvelous piece of absurdity and beauty. I don't care that it was one long single over-extended joke. Doesn't matter. It was gorgeous, and I was laughing and wanting it to go on. (As an aside, it also added some much-needed breathing room and gave us more time to start to feel more empathy and relationships to one or two of the characters.) All that said? Best of the three, hands-down. I kind of feel like watching it again. I may just do that while cleaning, today. I really enjoyed this film. It has its faults (another example: Moon isn't charismatic enough at <one point in the film> - we're supposed to be getting as hyped as the audience, but he's just not selling it hard enough), but not only is each technical piece solidly done - animation, V-A, etc.; technically, I'd say, this was eclipsed by Trolls on every individual part - but each piece comes together to make the most enjoyable experience I've had of the three films here. Heck, I'm turning it on right now as I type this, because I want to hear it and laugh at it while I do other things (before hopefully getting more sleep).

The Angry Birds: Well. I think we all know what's coming. This is the worst of the three films, by a solid and wide margin, and it's not really a surprise, I think, to anyone. It has excellent technical marks: voice acting, characterization and development, music, etc. are all excellent, and the visual work is really good. Humor is solidly hit and miss, and the pacing is poor, and the build up is weak, and the moral is... dubious, at best. "Angry guy who is outspoken and unpleasant about distrust the generous people who look different with different culture is correct." Sigh. The humor is juvenile and crude, the characters are often annoying, and the story is incredibly over-played and ultimately works on about zero levels. In the end, it's a kind of uninteresting fantasy which doesn't make sense for our world or really its own in an effort to justify game mechanics as tropes. There are ways to do that... but this just wasn't it. It certainly wasn't the worst film I've ever watched - it wasn't boring enough, irritating enough, poorly animated enough, or any other problem "enough" to make it even on the list of worst films - or even truly terrible ones. It just wasn't interesting enough to justify my time, either.

Anyway, hope this helps you make good decisions!

If you need to vent feel free, either here or PM. (i'd tell you to call or text me but i need to get a new phone, grumble grumble).

And yes, the night shift does suck.

Sorry you're having a hard time, Master.

If it helps, I am always willing to be aerated.


Why is this not a film with an incorrectly sympathetic view of Ching Shih? I mean, really? Come on! I want my Chinese Piracy video, dang it!

I am just pointing out that I differentiate "children's" stuff - like Daniel Tiger, Magic Schoolbus, or Carebears - from "teen-to-mid-twenties" stuff, which is what I consider all three of these films. The subject matter is q bit to mature, humor too crude, and concepts too mature. About the only kid things are "singing animals" and "colorful trolls" and "like that one game."

If it's a cartoon, brightly colored, annoying, or has choreographed dance or singing, it's a children's movie.
