Supermarket had a 64oz carton of mocha iced coffee on sale this morning. This may have been a mistake. I was already up to three 12oz cups before noon. I suspect by later today the world will be vibrating.

Edit: Vibrating kinda like this

Yeah nowadays it tends to be easier to get your info from the internet then the TV.

It was the Internet! The commercials were just super-obnoxious, regardless.

Haven't chugged it yet. Before today, I'd been limiting myself to one 12oz cup of coffee in the morning, and I'd cut my sugar intake down to about 1/3 of what it was a year ago. So I'm above my usual refined sugar and caffeine levels already, and I feel fantastic. And I can hear it calling to me.

I have been on r/nosleep and r/imsorryjon too long. That last sentence scares me.

No, made my Will saves. I constantly crave sugar and caffeine (and sleep), but I'm usually good at resisting. Doesn't stop the cravings, though, or deprogram the mis-learned food/drink behaviors that imprinted them.

At what point you give up on Pre-Sequel?

The game flow feels worse than in the previous games, though the game is worth playing for the character development. Also, LAZERS!

We're still on the stupid frozen moon, still dealing with the stupid oxygen mechanic. Maybe 5-6 hours in, tops.

Borderlands 1 and 2 were fun because you wandered around upgrading your weapons, sneaking into enemy bases, and shooting guys.

Borderlands the Pre-Sequel is basically a platformer: Wander around the maze-like, poorly-implemented map to try to figure out the route from point A to point B before you run out of oxygen. Do many, many jumps over lava in your car (I died 5 times last night from bad jumps, and Shiro and GothBard died twice). Fight nothing most of the time, then fight extreme swarms of bad guys until all 3 of you run out of ammo. Find out that at level 7 you're still using your original guns because not a single drop has been an upgrade. (We even used 3 golden keys and none of the loot upgraded our existing gear.)

So, extremely bad design combined with bad mechanics (I played the claptrap and I was the only one who ever used his ult, much to the irritation of my companions) led to us just abandoning it.

Sound like a lot of bad luck with the loot :(

I'm downloading the update for Fortnite that will bring season 10, this is a big deal in our house.

It will be interesting to see what they're doing with it.

I am not a fan of games with a luck mechanic. It's causing problems for me in battletech.

All I know is, if I find out who moved our trailer I'm going to sew their a#*&~$! shut and feed them sugar free gummy bears.

Coincidentally, the new high schoolers are suddenly a lot more afraid of me then they were yesterday.

What's worrying me is infrastructure... all of our major airports, shipping ports, subway systems, rail lines, and coastal highways on three coasts will be either underwater or seriously disrupted.

I'm going to go look at a used bike this morning. If it's not completely janky, I'll have something to ride with the kids. They're wanting to be able to ride their bikes to school instead of drive, and I don't blame them. It's only two and a half miles.

A certain social media app that will remain nameless to avoid irritating Freehold has been reminding me daily of the turmoil I was going through a year ago, trying to get the house in California packed up, and ugly-crying on the floor a lot. And I'm sitting here on my couch with my coffee in my as-together-as-it's-going-to-get life reading it and thinking, "you poor bastard. but, hey, look, it got better."

Wow...
...So, we all know that the currency exchange places are rip-offs; I figured I'd lose about 10% of my money to their bad exchange rates.

I've been truing up the budget, and my consistent rate has been 1 Euro = $1.15 or so. (It varies by day, but that's the rough average.)

The *one* time I used a booth I traded in 120 Euros. That should have been around $138. With the "rip-off factor" figure $120-$125.

I got $100.

Those booths are worse than credit card interest rates! Yowch!

(And yes, there's a reason I still have around 120 Euros on my desk. Once I took that hit I decided I'd do the exchange at my bank like a sane person.)

I've been taking the week off to avoid diving back into the whole, "You have an entire storage unit's stuff packed up like Mr. Peabody's closet waiting for you to get back to work on it..."

Well, 5 still-valid Eurail passes, 120 Euros, GothBard talking about how she wants to go back to Paris to buy more stuff, and a kitten.

Well, I have to get the Prius smog checked today, which irritates me no end, because I *know* that if they exempted Prii or other hybrid/electric vehicles, then someone would soup up a Prius into a smog-spewing muscle car, just 'cause 'Merikuns.

Offensive to 'Merikuns:
I think I posted it before, but the real eye-opener of traveling in Europe was a basic expectation that everyone was going to behave decently. In the U.S. it's all about, "If there isn't an explicitly-posted rule against it, then I'm going to do it, no matter who it bothers. And even if there's a rule, if no one's around to enforce it I'll ignore that too." In Europe the vibe is much more, "We've all got to live together, so let's at least adhere to a general sense of decorum that doesn't make everyone miserable."

It's really a tangible difference.

Contrary to Supreme Court rulings, corporations aren't people and such generalizations on behavior don't apply to them.

Woohoo! I have a bike! Which, contrary to assumptions, did not fit in the back of the Soul. And I had neither rope nor bungees in the car. So I stopped at a gas station to buy some.
Thank heavens for good ole southern sexism, the kind old man who owned the station came outside and insisted on tying up my hatchback for me. I got "God bless you, Ma'am"ed no less than three times.
You know what? I'll take it. Kindness makes the world go around.

Okay, please explain.

I am still trying to understand the differences between the Polish-American diaspora mindset/ethos and actual Polish.
