Made a thread for my query.

EDIT: *totally dressed*, though.

In-laws just left.
Dinner party was a success. They were complimentary. They spoiled the kids rotten. The kids were suitably appreciative and remembered their manners. Grandparents were happy.
Now the clean-up begins.

No I don't need big brother watching.

That sounds pretty non-lawful. Almost...chaotic...*dramatic 'dun dun DUUUUUN'*

Hey, now! Non-legal, doesn't mean non-lawful!

(There is a lot of overlap between legal and lawful, but they aren't quite the same thing. Legal codes are present as a hypothetically-neutral arbiter to give more-or-less equal ground for large-scale governance and organization; lawful per PF/D&D is more of an orderly/non-individualist conceit that often happens to coincide with various legalities; this divide is even sharper in PF, where they canonically have paladins flouting the law - even acting in open rebellion and sedition - ... against villainous authority. ... at least, that's how it's generally used in PF canon; your mileage may vary, some restrictions apply.)

No, I mean the idea of not being willing to sacrifice things like individuality, privacy and freedom for "the greater security" that is "big brother". In that sense, her comment is quite non-lawful.

Yes, and also no!

One of the greater schisms within the lawful community (much like schisms within the chaotic "community") comes along with the separation of lines and intrusiveness of authority and how an individual best fits into the greater whole!

So, while, on the one hand, suggesting that a desire for personal privacy fits more squarely with an individualist mindset is true, however, it may, in the end, be "better" (and lead to "cleaner" regulation) to permit such privacy to generally increase the efficacy of the whole. I.e., in this case, the good of the individual is the good of the collective, including "big brother" she spoke of.

(As a related aside, some people - and this applies here - also have a hard time envisioning a non-evil version of "Big brother" as that phrase implies powerful folks with overarching authority to make sweeping decisions without the will or consent of the collective governed; this constitutes a clear association with/trend towards lawful evil, even if it is not inherently. Lawful neutrals, therefore, would likely get suspicious, at least if they are mortal and have any hint of individuality, which most all mortals I'm aware of do!)

Also, it should be noted, I'm not, actually, alignment-fighting. I'm being rather facetious. This is for funsies, not for passionate nerd-fighting.

I stumbled onto what is apparently quite a long-standing D&D - Planescape specifically - theory of a non-canon-confirmed location called the Ordial Plane. It's bizarrely fascinating.

This is the most comprehensive single location for info I've found on the subject.

There's a fair bit more out there with a quick Google search, though. And lots of debate over the details.

I'm really fond of some of the ideas, though. Specifically, the ones outlined here about the Ordial being a plane where spacetime doesn't exist and thus physical objects and entities cannot actually travel there without losing their corporeal forms, and the off-mentioned theory that the Ordial is the non-space (oooh!) where Vestiges (from 3.5's Binder class) are currently bound or trapped.

Look, my spectacles just broke and I'm supposed to help my aunt collect a cake for tomorrow's party. I don't know if I'll have the time to collect the cake and get my replacement spectacles so I'm very grouchy at the moment. Not to mention my mom will probably nag me to get a pair of new specs.

Look, do I look like I have the time for it? It's a farking busy weekend for me.

And my PBP group is urging me to push plot. I'm pissed with all those multiple commitments that I'm trying to fulfill.

About lawfulness, if the laws of the land state that I must submit to my parents scrutiny of my phone and email, then I will submit, or move somewhere else.

But since the laws of the land do not say so, why must I bear a greater burden then the rest of the world on that matter.

I know the government may spy on me, they are welcome to do so, since they have laws in place. But not my parents, since I have my own life to lead and don't want their interference, which I feel is unjustified - no one should be punished without distinct breach in law, so I have not breached any laws of the land - why am I punished for it?

Farking sad case when I don't care if the government spies on me but my parents do.

Mainly because the government does not try to control my life.

OK specs guy managed to stick my glasses back with glue, so I have some time to get to my spare glasses. I must say having that bit of extra time off made me a lot less stressed, since I need to pick up the cake for my cousins Christmas lunch tomorrow, tonight. Having to pick up my spare glasses and the cake in one night is cutting things very close, and causing me to get stressed out.

And doing DIY using scotch tape to fix my broken glasses typically didn't work out very well, causing me some of my pepheieral vision out of that side of spectacle lens.

While my parents were a bit concerned about all that fantasy and stuff, they were way more happy that I was reading a lot (reading is good for you!), and though all those hobbies we're very strange (LARP and such), it was at least getting me out of the house and being social. I even made friends!

...unless you're NH or John, in which case you look more like a Bond villain, or if you're female, in which case you look more like the new M.

Cap's too scrawny to be Bond. He's more like "Assassin number three."
All I've seen of Vany is a disembodied hand holding a beer bottle, but Bond doesn't drink beer.
Granted, the sample set is not large, but it's not encouraging.

My six pack and pecs disagree on the scrawny assessment.

Also I've been told I look like 1) Brad Pitt in Legends of the Fall, 2) Antonio Banderas, 3) Eddie Vedder, 4) Jesus, and 5) Weird Al.

Oof. Glad you've got a stopgap.

It's a testament to my paranoia that I have never thrown out an old pair despite never having broken my glasses. Old prescription is better than nothing. I think I've got three lying around somewhere.

Thanks! It's gonna be a joke.

We're doing an attendance incentive - if you've missed fewer than five days, you don't have to come. This has knocked out a pretty sizeable chunk of the roster, and a lot of the ones with attendance problems are probably going to skip anyway.

I'm thinking of pulling up a Pictionary prompt site and telling them to have at it.

My best description of my 30s is that all the people who say, "You won't be able to do that when you're in your 30s" are fools. You're still in the prime of your life, and there's really no noticeable change from your 20s, except maybe you have a little less energy.

It's not until your late 40s that your eyes start misbehaving, and that's the first irritation.

I'd say at 51 I've lost a small amount of strength and flexibility, but stretching and exercising every day keeps it at a minimum.
