How it works is this. If you have two choices, wearing clothes and being nekkid, and since it's the first post of the page, so wearing clothes is not a choice... The conclusion is you have no choice but to be nekkid.

Like I am now!

LM, please don't let your family end up like typical Texans.

I just acquired some peach liqueur. Was thinking of getting chocolate but it was double the price(admittedly double the volume too). And I didn't want to get my parents complaining I'm becoming an alcoholic.

I tried it last night and it was soooo good. I even passed some to my mom...and she said it was a little too sweet and she'd have it diluted. She never even noticed the 28% alcohol ;) Heh...

I bet that'd be good with mixed with champagne or prosecco. I think Aldi has a 750ml bottle of sparkling white, maybe prosecco, that's supposed to be quite good for around $11 or so. Hmmm...

NHs goodness is rubbing off me. I told wingstop that they gave me an extra wing(after I started eating, counting bones and realized there was an extra wing) and asked them what they wanted to do about it, they said it was fine.


They're coming to take me away!

The lyrics are disturbing. You shouldn't blame your sanity (or lack thereof) on another. Though I admit I do.


~runs screaming through the thread~ I am not crazy!


Yes you are!


Am not!


Am too!


Not!


Are!

Talking to yourself is a sign of insanity.

~munches on popcorn~ No, no! Let him continue. This is entertaining.

When I short have shorn my sow's face
And swigged my horny barrel,
In an oaken inn I pound my skin
As a suit of gilt apparel;
The moon's my constant mistress,
And the lowly owl my marrow;
The flaming drake and the night crow make
Me music to my sorrow.

Actually when I read the lyrics I felt it was about a woman who a man abused, then dumped her.

Apparently wiki says that the main character seems to be addressing an ex-girlfriend or wife.

I had an ex-girlfriend who actually made me break into a brief moment of hysteria once. I can literally say she drove me crazy.

But Vidmaster7, you're the calmest person I know off...right till I diss your beard ;)

It doesn't take much to drive me crazy. Just non adherence to the pathfinder rules in a pathfinder game I'm running will do it.

Yeah that should give you some idea of what I put up with now multiply how bad you think she was by 10 and then your really close.

The one about two choices.

Get Iron Gods, the more you'll know.

But it's the second best adventure path ever!

You must get it now. Resistance is futile.


I will suggest it to my friend he likes running adventure paths. what is the best one btw?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

Skull and Shackles, of course.


Pirate themed right? so iron gods it is.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

My favorite adventure paths are the themed ones.

Coworker: Do you want to keep going on the wall, or would you rather build the pillars?

Me: It's up to you, but I'm having fun building the wall

Coworker (sounding surprised): You aren't being facetious, are you?

We apparently got invited to a graduation for someone none of us know, they assume our children are adults, they know our correct address, and used the General's maiden name, and they live in some town we've never heard of (Greenville, Wi).

The good news:

I have my third and final interview tomorrow morning with a good school where the director has been avidly pursuing me and will probably make me an offer tomorrow.

The bad news:
It's in Texas, and, while it would probably be a really good move for our family (kids in the same town as 3/4 living grandparents, happier school environment, big ancestral house, better cost of living), it will absolutely devastate Hermione, all the children's godparents, and my own family (who are currently only a six-hour drive away).

So... yeah.

Well, speaking as one of the friends from whom you'd be moving away: The current situation isn't sustainable.

  • Your job stresses you out every single day. I was that miserable once in my life. I quit the job with no prospects. It was still the best decision I ever made in my life.
  • From what you report here, your landlord is getting more and more passive-aggressive. Better to leave on your terms than to suddenly find yourself stranded and struggling to find housing in the ludicrous market around here.

  • It sucks, and we'll miss you. But I'd rather see you safe, happy, and secure, than showing up at my house once a month utterly miserable and exhausted, describing one more horror your job or landlord has inflicted upon you.

    As for Hermione, you'd be surprised how fast kids adapt. A LOT of my friends moved at around that age. None of them are the worse for it.

    And as for your mother, if you keep teaching and getting summers off, I'm betting a train trip to Oregon every summer would be a highlight of the kids' memories. I personally LOVED the train when I was younger...

    We moved from Seattle back to Wisconsin to be closer to family.

    I've never regretted it.

    Take it. You deserve better than what you've currently got, and a good school should mean long-term better school for your kids as well as your students. NH is right - it's easier on kids to move when they're younger.

    I think it'll be something you always regret if you pass on the offer.

    Yes. You are all ABSOLUTELY right.
    And yet.
    I'm still averaging four hours of sleep a night agonizing over it (partly over sticker shock checking rates on moving companies, and the house won't be ready for us to move into yet so we'll have to rent for a little while first).
    And I just got off the phone with the director and it turns out that, while they want to offer me the position, it's not going to be a head teacher position after all, it would be the second-in-command position.

    Which is entirely appropriate; the gal who would be moving from second to head in the classroom has been there for seven years, knows the school, knows the families, etc.

    And I'm totally aware that my disappointment is entirely, as Ving Rhames put it in Pulp Fiction, "just Pride f***ing with you".

    So... again... yeah.

    So we're supposed to talk again on Tuesday.

    Well, considering that moving back in with my mother was the worst decision I ever made in my life, renting is actually a better call, in my opinion.

    I was just coming here to suggest that when I saw the decision had been thankfully made for you.

    And good luck! There's, "I'm almost certain I got this job," and then there's, "I have the physical offer letter in my hands," and the two are frustratingly worlds apart.

    Nope. Talking to yourself is normal. As is arguing with yourself. Now, if you consistently lose the argument, that's when you might have a problem.

    If you have two choices, and one is taken away, you now have no choice.

    So, lets say your wife asks you what you want for lunch. You can have either tuna salad or a turkey sandwich. Then she says, oh wait, there is no tuna salad. You now have no choice about your lunch, you're going to have a turkey sandwich.

    Make sense now?

    Me fifteen minutes ago: "...they honestly make a machine to fold pamphlets and programs? Why would anyone...?"
    Me now: "THIS IS A MIRACLE OF MODERN PROGRESS."

    So, yeah, programs are all ready for graduation.

    No lie.

    And it turns out there's a duplex available in her neighborhood for 800 a month we could probably get for a minimal deposit, no first/last.

    Cost of living is seriously different there.

    Signs that your wife has a relaxed work environment:

    NobodysHome: Your bottle opener fell off your purse. But I guess you won't need it at work.
    NobodysWife: Yeah. We have plenty!

    And I've been there. Pretty much every employee is expected to have a bottle of their favorite high-end liquor there, and they frequently have late-afternoon toasts to... whatever.

    You know your job is low-key when open liquor bottles in the work area are encouraged.

    800 a month?! Sign me right the hell up!

    *Sigh* Much as I'd rather not leave Seattle, I doubt I can afford it on my levels of (work-related) talent and motivation.
