Yay I completed druid hearthstone dungeon run!

While naked! =D

Anyway the deck wasn't what I'd even call very good...maybe I was lucky. I took small backpacks, glyph of warding, boots of haste and wand of wonder.

Not even you know, big minion stomp.

I just finished watching Spirited Away. That and Howl's Moving Castle are my favorite of Miyazaki's movies. Having said that, they are all very good.

It'd have to be one of those two or Princess Mononoke for me.

I just finished watching Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Howl's Moving Castle, Castle in the Sky, Princess Mononoke, and Spirited Away. I had to reby them all because I can't find my Miyazaki collection. I must have lent them out and never got them back.

I haven't seen Nausicaa or Castle in the Sky. On the to-watch list, though.

I've been alternating between Gravity Falls, Cupcake Wars, and It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia the last few days.

I binged my way through season ten of Doctor Who the second it was released on Prime, am on season two of Stranger Things, and am waiting for Whingey Wizzard to get home so we can get back to watching Treme. Which is old, but we just stumbled on it over Christmas when we got Prime. And I am soooooo hooked.

Got my laptop working again. The downside? I lost all my installed programs. Re-installed Chrome and Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate. I'll have to work on PCGen, Campaign Cartographer, and Inkspot. But those are problems for another day.

Spirited Away was a good movie. If you get the chance, watch The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya and let me know what you think.

Potential Lady Longears (Diamond Edition) is encouraging me to take the Myers-Briggs test. Personally, I'm not sure that those things are very much more meaningful than a horoscope, but I'll give it a go anyway.

Advocate. How interesting. What I've read about it is that advocates are altruistic. Does that mean you cant play evil characters?

i like evil characters. They tend to be interesting. Or at least more interesting than paladins.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

The only thing interesting about Paladins is watching them fall.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I find that the trick to a good paladin character is to either give them someone to live up to, a father figure if you will, or even an icon hero of old, or to give them a rough past that catches up with them occasionally, and through these vehicles you can give them dilemmas that either make them question their faith, or hold to it stronger, thus building their character. I prefer the former, since I find tragic heroes tend to be a bit over done.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

It really depends on the player and character. There are some painfully one-note evils and pallies, and there are incredibly well thought-out examples of the same.

Rainbow is insisting on playing after school. And I'm legitimately worried.

Spoiler:
They got into the Temple of Urgathoa, so tonight will be at least Rolth if not also Lady Andaisin. Tactics are still a work-in-progress.

Grr... there are really very few things as frustrating as a group of adults who know that there's a major issue with the kids in their care, but who do absolutely, positively, nothing whatsoever to deal with the problem.

As I've mentioned before, petty theft is a massive issue in our school district: Whatever it is, if you leave it unattended for more than 2 minutes, it's going to get stolen. My favorite example: Impus Major's P.E. clothes, in spite of being too small for anyone else at the school *AND* having his name on them, were stolen SIX TIMES in his final year of P.E. And that's with a lock on the locker! Kids just came in, cut off the lock, and stole the clothes. For no reason.

Similarly, a lot of the kids just look at the lost and found and consider it, "Free cool stuff."

And the adults continue to do nothing. I've complained about it, and they do the classic, 'Shrug my shoulders and insist there's nothing I can do about it'.
What about, "Have ONE faculty member watch the lost and found for a day and verify ownership? Or put lost and found in the office instead of in an unmonitored hallway?"

So I'm just seriously pissed right now because at the Dickens Faire we got Impus Minor a really cool "newsboy hat". He loved it and he looked good in it. He accidentally left it in the choir room. The choir teacher found it and, in spite of being fully aware of the massive theft problem, *AND* knowing it was Impus Minor's, just sent it to Lost and Found, where it was promptly stolen.

So Impus Minor is out a hat until next year's Dickens Faire, and I have to sit there and explain to the faculty again that their whole "Lost and Found" system is more of a, "Collect all the nice things so the thieves can have their choice" bin.

Grrr....

Doesn't that school have any Security Guards? If so, why is this still happening? Do they even care about providing Security? Or are they mainly "here for the Paycheck." The Security Supervisor needs to be replaced, and you can say that I, a Security guard with over twenty years of experience, said so. I could do a better job.

Maybe a mention of filing a police report would do something to their motivation...

Seems somewhat correct. Even if I don't really put much stock in such things.

Today has been very easy so far.

1) I've been asked to install software that the person already has and it is working properly...and she provided me proof that she had the software in the request...

2) I was asked to "install this Excel spreadsheet on these four computers". Yeah, I'm very certain that every single one of you on this forum thread understands why my face got screwed up over that one. It's a spreadsheet. They already have Excel. Just email it to them yourself. The response I got: "I was told to ask you to do that."

Er, no. We're a "rich" school district. There are no security guards. And as for filing a police report, there's no proof that the hat was "stolen". he "lost" it. So the police can't be bothered.

Modern times...

That's bizarre. You'd think a "rich" district would be more insistent on a security guard.

Only when it intersects with "poor" districts and the populace.

Pretty much.

In spite of Albany being sandwiched between Richmond and Oakland, it has El Cerrito as a buffer to the north, and Berkeley as a buffer to the south. Our violent crime rate is virtually nil; we have maybe one or two strongarm robberies per week, but they're always along the major passthrough corridors (a business highway and a railway bike path). In most of Albany, a 90-year-old woman can wander around with a purse with hundreds in cash sticking out any time of the day or night, and she won't be bothered at all, unless it's the police pulling over to offer her a hand.

Yeah, there are non-violent car break-ins all the time, but you can pretty much leave your front door unlocked 24/7 and you'll never get robbed.

So in a school district where violent crime is virtually unknown, it makes sense that they're not going to shell out for "unnecessary" security.

Used to be INFP. Nowadays it seems I am ENTP. It changes, which calls the concept into question. Personality shouldn't change.

It's hard to put this on the intrawebs without sounding insulting or condescending, so I'll just say that this is meant as a compliment/curiosity: You're one of the most intelligent, logical-thinking, educated posters on the board. You should know that as people age, their personalities change drastically. I am nothing like the person I was when I was 25, and he was nothing like the person I was when I was 15.

So yes, personalities change over the years.

But yeah, if you took the tests 2-3 weeks apart, you're right. They shouldn't change much at all.

How bored do you have to be before singing Celine Dion songs to yourself becomes more interesting than the meeting you're in?

I think my favorite hobby is watching the kids invent all sorts of arbitrary parameters for class activities.

I have a big foam-rubber d6 that I use for bellwork - there is a poster with 6 options for an exit slip, and we roll each hour to see what they get. The worst (most writing) option, of course, is a 1 because there's just that tickly happiness from hearing a room full of kids yell "Noooo we rolled a 1."

So...the only rules I have are that it must be rolled, and you can reroll on Friday if you want, but you have to take the reroll result.

...this has quickly become "it's better luck if you throw it to someone else, and they roll," "NO NO only reroll on a 1, 2, or 6," "You're banned from rolling if you roll a 1 until someone else unjinxes you by rolling a 1," and about twelve other rules that vary by hour.

Even then the results could differ: the very mood and feelings you have at the moment of picking the answers can influence your responses if do not try to recall what you said the last time.
