Yeah, the sentiment behind it (sorry not sorry, gloating) is asinine, but WCW is the best poet in the English language for helping kindergartners understand what poetry is because of the sensory-rich scenes he depicts.

The Tang dynasty Chinese poets are also good for the same reason, but the translations vary. Kenneth Rexroth edited some in English.

I don't know anything about Chinese poetry but I was always a fan of Allen Ginsberg and Jim Morrison.

I still keep momentarily confusing* William Carlos Williams with Walter Jon Williams, which I was introduced to much earlier. I didn't find out about WCW until the time I first started getting exploratory on the Internet.

But I keep momentarily confusing car & apt keys and occasionally still mixing up left & right too, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Well, there's a place for spontaneity ("Hey, let's run off and get dinner," like they did last night) and a place where it's stupid ("Hey, I see a trailhead! Let's walk up it and see where it gets us even though we don't have so much as a water bottle among us!").

My general rule of thumb is that if Impus Major's friends spontaneously try to get him to do something that:
(1) Will eat *my* time to help them get organized
(2) Will cost Impus Major money
(3) May be dangerous
then it's a no-go.

In this case I would have had to drop everything to print out the necessary docs for Impus Major while getting him out the door, then on the very real possibility that he wouldn't be given credit for the course I would have had to drive for 2 hours to pick him up. Too much risk for not enough reward.

And I think the thing that really ticks me off is that it was a good idea. Even if they'd told me about it last night I could have had him all prepped to go, money in hand, and she could have dropped him at BART if things hadn't worked out. But with no time for preparation nor contingency planning, it's a "throw caution to the wind" attitude that so many people find "admirable" or "fun". But I've had to clean up too many of those messes in my lifetime to consider them anything but selfish ***hats.

It sucks being the responsible one.

remind me to never adventure with you. I keep forgetting this is you.

I have so many questions about this, actually. As I'm not able to think of an intelligible set of code words that would get me around the Paizo censors, ** spoiler omitted **

Spoiler:

1) Yes, correct - different parties have different rules, too, and I *think* that either only Conservative Party Members of Parliament can vote, or the membership do get a say, but MPs have the final say.
2) He is a colossal arse, and is pretty much universally considered to be dishonest, untrustworthy and pathologically egotistical. He'll trample over anyone and anything to get what he wants, and he really, really wants to be Prime Minister. However, he has been the poster boy for a hard Brexit in the Tory Party (which is what a lot of them want), and he has a high profile in the media (higher than the other muppets in the running), so he was always going to ace it unless something went badly wrong.
3) As for the events of last night, to what are you referring - the police being called to his house after a disturbance, or something else? He's a vast prat, so is perfectly capable of sabotaging his own campaign without any external chicanery going on.

This was actually recently brought back to my memory due to a conversation between Scint and I where she was working on some school stuff and grumbling about WCW.

S: "You've heard of William Carlos Williams, right?"
O: "The name doesn't ring a bell."
S: *links the blueberries "poem"*
O: "OH THIS A~&@%#*."

Admittedly the normal reaction I would have to that level of smug disdain should be annoyance, but surprisingly that's not what bugs me about WCW.

It's about the fact that his nonsense is considered poetry at all.

1. Thanks, that helps.
2. So, nothing at all like our bawbag-in-chief.
3. Yeah, I know it's completely stupid. The part of my brain that insists on believing that all Brits who aren't either rock gods, crime novelists, or members of the RSC are, in fact, actually spies came up with this ridiculous notion of the neighbor being "encouraged" to call the police and talk to the press. Stupid, I know.

No, it's not stupid, it's absolutely the sort of thing Mycroft would have done. Of course, now some blowhard is going to come along and try to convince me that Mycroft is not only "not real" but a completely fictional character.

I like both.

Some trips get planned out, with some room for things going wrong or spontaneous decisions - "Oh look! We should stop and spend a couple hours checking this place out!"

Other trips are more of a "Let's go to...east...and do...something..."

Oh yeah and that leaves us innocent night auditors getting yelled at because someone went into their room when everything was telling us the room was empty. Not to mention how dangerous that is for the guest. I don't know why my 2nd shift has just been giving keys out without checking people in. Heck the system is set up to make doing that very difficult. Plsu why!?! why do that?!?! So frustrated with them right now. I've been running all over the hotel tonight because of all the crap they've done wrong.

We had rains yesterday and day before and the temperature dropped to mid-20 (around 80F for you 'Muricans) this weekend, though it is supposed to slowly grow back to thirties (90F) in the incoming week, until the Friday when it drops again (and then is supposed to start rising again :( )
