A good friend of mine grew up in Chicago and has lived all over the world at this point. His wife is from Colombia and she also had quite a bit of world travel experience before they met.

She thinks a Michigan winter is amazing, but doesn't necessarily want to be out in it when it's in the single digit temps. Florida has mild summers for her.

He thinks anything below 75 requires a coat and anything above 80 is too hot to leave the air conditioned home.

He's a very weird man. And this is me talking.

Pregnant. Or 'with child' if you find that more palatable.

Finished Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

The game was fun, but it would be so much better if it was more of a pastiche instead of a parody... And if it had a proper skill tree to play with the character development and more weapons to fire. As is, it terribly under-uses the opportunities provided by Far Cry 3 engine.

Amazon Prime says:

After losing his parents, a priest travels to China, where he inherits a mysterious ability that allows him to turn into a dinosaur. Although he is horrified by the new power, a prostitute convinces him to use it to fight crime. And ninjas.

Apparently there is something worse than Sharknado. It is The VelociPastor.

How you know your kids are actually aliens.

Me (yesterday): Hey guys, just so you know, tomorrow you're both going to the dentist

Tiny T-Rex: Yes!!

Crookshanks: Awesome! Can we get there early!!

Tiny T-Rex: Can we go right now!

Ugh. Sorry you're having that. The only thing that gets me through those is sleeping through it. Go find a dark closet.

Pretty sure both cap and I (and Drejk!) knew.

I just found the whole thing funny (especially when you'd written "pregnang," and cap had responded as if it were "pregang" which is exactly the sort of mistake and/or joke I'd make) - sorry if it was annoying!

THIS JUST IN: FREEHOLD PREGGERS*

* Okay, I am kind of sorry for such verbiage as "preggers" - especially to anyone who's actually been pregnant. Not sorry enough to not do it, obvs., but still.

So I'm not sure whether this is a worldwide phenomenon (yet), but hoo, boy. Yesterday's all hands had the usual B.S.:

Press release: Our company is showing double-digit net revenue growth
News article: Our former CEO made over $1 billion last year alone
All Hands: We don't have enough money to give you raises, or even cost of living adjustments

And then companies wonder why all their best talent leaves, and they end up with sub-par employees and products...

And yeah, as expected, you've gotta love banks and their whole, "Hurry up and get all this done so we can get you your loan," approach to the universe.

Once we realized we'd be better off expanding the HELOC to eliminate all our other debt as well as paying for all our planned repairs, we contacted the bank. Cue a flurry of multiple requests a day: "Please do this. Please provide that. Please sign the other thing."
They honestly acted like this was some incredibly urgent thing that needed to be finished ASAP.

So yeah, we finished all the paperwork last Friday and haven't heard a peep since. And the paperwork we signed says that the closing date for the refi is February 10.

So... you are all eager and urgent and nutso for something that's not going to go through for at least a month.

Er... whatever...

I used to LOVE going to the dentist.

He had weird adult parody art on the walls and was INCREDIBLY funny, an all around awesome guy.

Today I got a call from my bank asking if I would be interested in a credit offer. Ehh, nope. At least the caller showed a proper response to decisive "no" immediately and didn't press the issue.

I did not covered the topic of sheer idiocy of calling with an offer of credit to someone who doesn't have a steady source of income, and within the last year had maybe, maybe single positive transfer to his account (as opposed to regular direct payments for internet coming out of the account). Wouldn't that be a hint that he's not a suitable material for a credit-taker?

Oh, just own a house in the Bay Area. With house prices rising at 15%+ per year, the banks are all really interested in getting you to turn ALL of your home equity into liquid cash so the moment you lose your job they get your house.

It is evil profit-mongering at its worst.

And the banker was openly surprised to find out that even with my new loan my debt balance is under 50% of the value of the house. I'm one of those weirdos who's actually, y'know, going to PAY OFF his house and own it outright! What a concept! How un-American! :-O

From the amazing amount of screams and laughter coming from the living room, I'm guessing if you're interested it's worth it.

Oh my wife is a hoot at times. Especially when it comes to weather.

Once, during a typical New Orleans heat wave (you know, 110% humidity & 100 degrees F in the shade) we had a cool front come through. It was on the weather report and everything.
(Note= COOL front, NOT 'Cold' front)

So the next morning, before heading out the door of our shotgun house, my wife asks me to reach into the closet and hand her her 'jacket'.
-I hand her her light windbreaker.

Mrs. Wizard- "No honey, my good jacket."
-I hand her her LINED windbreaker jacket.

Mrs Wizard- "No honey, My GOOD jacket that you got me for Christmas!"
-I reach into the closet and pull out her Christmas present.
A heavy, very warm, knee-length coat with a fur-lined hood.

Rags- "Honey, it's a Cool front, Not a BLIZZARD!"
(It was 80 degrees F outside BTW)
;P

A knight was trying to woo several maidens he knew with some jokes. He had different kinds of jokes for each maiden, as he knew they each had different types of humor. Margaret was first, and the knight stood before her and tried out a new knock knock joke. A boy watching nearby asked his mother, "why did he tell her a knock knock joke?" The mother replied, "well sweetie that's because her husband used to always tell them, so she appreciates them more." Next was Priscilla, and as the knight stood before her he tried out the joke the court jester told him. "Why did the knight use a court jester joke?" Asked the boy. "Well sweetie that's because Priscilla isn't very bright and she wouldn't understand most other jokes." Finally it was Dawn's turn. The knight began his joke but the mother quickly covered the boys ears. "Why did you do that?" Asked the boy. "Because you are too young for the humor the knight uses on her. After all, the knight is always darkest before Dawn."

My group started Rise of the Runelords for PF1 just before Thanksgiving, and holiday schedules being what they are, just finished our fourth game yesterday.

I'm playing a CG kobold rogue raised by a dwarf cleric of the drunken god, who has craft alchemy and profession brewer. Our party is a traveling tavern of Caydenites with a food truck style wagon that acts as a bar. I'm the brewer. The paladin/swashbuckler is our bartender and has max perform juggling, our bouncer is an ex gladiator human brawler, our boss is a warpriest, and our driver and animal tender is a half elf shifter.

We are all escaped slaves, and my kobold swears he is just a really ugly dwarf...he wears a s*$&ty fake beard but has max disguise and bluff so he pulls it off when he actually tries.
