I'll tell you what isn't fun. Poetry. I try to use it when it's relevant to a book/play we're reading but almost never else. Had to today, though.

Ah, tax time! For the first time in years I'm looking forward to it, because I think we're getting a decent-sized refund: I went from 14 exemptions to 4 so I prepaid a LOT more, and we took an absolute bath on the rental property (thanks, family!).

Unfortunately, we also refinanced our mortgage again, so our accountant's bill is going to be through the roof. But dumping that nightmare of paperwork in his lap and saying, "Here you go! Get me my refund!" is well worth it.

I like poetry...


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Me too.

OooOooOooOOOooo,

When the muse does descend and blesses me with her snowy-white wings,
Then I do open my throat and nose and mouth and do loudly and tunefully and melodiously and expertly sing,
Of the manifold fair beauties of that fair and beautiful land which is commonly called by English speakers Scotland, or Alba,
By those who speak Gaelic, a Q-Celtic language that cannot be spoken by anyone currently eating the dessert known as Peach Malba,
Because they will then spray peach and crumbs everywhere,
And make the waiting staff despair,
And will cause the manager to think
That they have over-indulged in the curse of Mankind, known as Strong Drink,
Which is a very wicked and pernicious substance
And doth cause young maidens to do the Immoral Rub Dance.

Thankyou.

A few years back, PETA was publicly advocating people purchase shoes from a vegan shoe company that had just been the subject of an expose about their use of third-world child labor in sweatshops. Cruelty free, unless you're a child laborer.

If I were Dante Alighieri, that's the type of hypocrisy that would get you buried head-down in a lake of molten excrement in hell.

It's a wee bit frustrating -- Our Sunday game is Shiro writing his own AP, as he doesn't like the ones Paizo produces. He's certainly got the chops to do so: He co-wrote the Blackwatch RPG, was a major contributor to various Runequest updates, and runs Call of Cthulu sessions at multiple cons a year.

So Sunday was the first session, and it was all kinds of fun. I love running gnomes in the first place (chaotic much?), and my gnome rogue managed to make every Acrobatics check she tried, plus hit over 80% of the time with a pathetic +1 to hit bonus, *and* got to streak around an inn because they put the public bath in the front room.

Unfortunately, since Shiro's playtesting us with plans on publishing the AP once he's done, I can't talk about it much publicly. Kind of playing under an NDA or whatnot.

But the first session was fun, tense, a near-TPK, and felt really rewarding and open-ended; we COULD have done a lot more, but we were down a player and didn't want to delve too deep into the AP until our fourth shows up.

So anyway, no writeups 'cause I can't talk about the AP, but as Trig lives or dies or does spectacularly silly things, I'll probably mention them here.

Whee!

Once again, the guard that was supposed to be here, isn't. And, I'm here at work on my "day off." F****ng typical.

Y'know, Global Megacorporation is pretty darned lax when it comes to firing people, but, "Not showing up for work at all" is on their list of things for which they WILL actually fire you... eventually...

I think the office pulled the guard to another site, making the idea of fully staffing this garage into what seems to be a running joke.

And for those of you looking forward to when your kids don't do stupid stuff, you're in for a LOOOOONG wait!

There's a leak in Impus Minor's ceiling, so we put a metal bowl under it. So, think about that water for a minute... it's got to land on the 30-year-old shingle roof, run through the 90-year-old wood treated with who-knows-what, dribble through the 30-year-old fiberglass insulation and the who-knows-how-old lath-and-plaster ceiling (probably riddled with asbestos) and the peeling paint before dripping into the bowl.

So yep, the dripping water is full of who-knows-how-many toxic and/or carcinogenic things, so of course Impus Minor didn't want to bother walking the TEN FEET to the bathroom, so he drank some of it.

*SIGH*

Hermione once ate watermelon rind out of the compost bucket at school. Of course she was only two at the time. Still we're talking three days of throwing up and home from school.

I ate some cream puffs that had gone bad.
I spent a day throwing up and it was really sad.
Now I can't look at cream puffs without being turned of a tad.

Dominate is really fun,
If you dominate the party striker watch them run.
Or if they don't run fast enough see them fall,
Your diabolical laughter echoing across the hall.

It doesn't stop when you're staff at a college and the kids are legally adults that you help teach rather than ones you raise.

Today, I had to explain to a student why a mirror is not a legitimate tool for leverage to pry out teeth. While looking at the broken pieces of said mirror.

Kids don't stop doing mind-numbingly dumb stuff just because they can legally vote >.<

Ugh. I have to take it back on Jade Regent and the final assault on the castle. The first fight was really nice: A low-level, feel-good, "We kicked these guards' butts" affair against four guards and a commando.

But in the towers around the castle and the battlements, there are FORTY-NINE of these guards!!! We're talking Final Fantasy levels of grindiness. A great big, "Seriously? You were THAT lazy? You just threw these guys into EVERY SINGLE ROOM where you thought there should be guards?!?!!?"

And of course the PCs, being thorough, wanted to eliminate all the guys shooting arrows from the towers, the arrow slits, etc., so I had the grand opportunity to run a dozen useless combats over the course of 3-4 sessions just to burn time and party resources.

I chose not to.

But forty-nine of a single creature type in a single dungeon in an AP? Seriously?

Ah, the seductive call to rhyme.
The inspiration, the feeling…is really divine.

Underneath my cold-hearted, cynical face
That I show to the human race,
Is a poet with warmth and feelings galore.
Locked deep inside my inner core.

Students, students, they’re really great
Next they’ll be eating the food, as well as the plate.

The calling of a GM is hard as heck
Players keep giving you the expression, what the feck.
Module writers sometimes don’t do things right,
Hey, how do creatures with no darkvision attack the party at night?
Or they put tactics that make no sense,
Leaving the GM wondering if they were really that dense.
But again without written modules the alternative would be worse,
I have really no idea how to write proper verse.

I found a problem with my Skittermander Soldier with the fusillade feat build for Starfinder.

Laser pistols ain't cheap.

Also I'm not sure how to calculate the damage for a forty foot cone of laser fire from six pistols.

Humans are not Animals to be protected to PETA.

And apparently in the world of Animal Protection Organizations, PETA are lightweights. They don't do armed raids of government animal-testing labs or pet shelters. Some other groups do.

The raids are scary. Some of those animal testing labs are testing things that should never have been made to begin with, and certainly have no place in the wild.

I wouldn't be surprised if that's how smallpox makes a comeback.

For the killing of animals to stop,
People should give up their chops.
For it’s all about supply and demand,
Without demand, businesses of those kind will not be profitable to run.

There are far more animals being killed for food,
I’ve heard watching the slaughter process can make one brood.
If you truly love animals, give up your meat.
For there are better ways for the world to feed.

I know I am not an animal right activist, but harm an animal for no reason I will not.
Food is a valid reason, but if you are harming them just to see them suffer, you really should be shot.

Asbestos is a big problem out here; if you live in a post-war home like Nobody's, there's a good chance it's in the ceiling. If you live in one of the Vics, chances are you may still have asbestos-coated electrical wire.

It's pretty common for landlords to include a potentially hazardous building materials waiver with rental contracts.
