Okay. I realized that I missed this thread, and I didn't want to do that as I post here regularly so...

Spoiler:
As most of you know, I have no problem sharing my personal life on this site, as the paizo messageboards are a home to me. However, my wife has been dealing with a rather personal health issue that she asked me to not share with anyone, and I have respected her decision. Unfortunately, while dealing with this health issue, we have fallen behind in rent. While I considered(and ultimately decided against) a gofundme when my bike was stolen, this is a far, far more serious issue(while I can spoon a bike while I sleep, I cannot live inside one) and I have to admit that I need help on this one. I don't know if I will meet the rather lofty goal, but even a fraction or halfway would help IMMENSELY. Here is a link to the gofundme.
This...isn't easy for me. But as stated before, this is a lot more important than a bike. And as an aside, you can share the link outside of this site with friends and family.
I realize this is the same thing I posted in the fawtl and treehouse threads, but I want to keep my verbage the same as...well, I've never done anything like this before. As noted above, it is not easy to ask for this kind of help, but I think it is important to do so in this case. Thanks for listening, and again as noted above, please share with friends and family.

Okay, time for a bit of an update...

Spoiler:
So, I made a payment today. Out of my own monies, including what I made working the convention this weekend, not from the gofundme. Seeing the amount owed brought up a lot of feelings, almost all of them negative, but one of them positive- gratitude. The gofundme sits at just over 1000 dollars now, and...yeah. It's not quite enough to dispel the sense of impending doom hanging over me, but it does light the spark of hope deep within. I am going to be reaching out to some family members over the next few days to see what can be done there, and I will try to end the gofundme a little bit before the end of the month to make up for any days things are held up in processing or whatever. I cannot thank everyone who has donated enough, and I do truly hope that with the help of friends, family, and strangers that this can go from a potential horror to a jumpable hurdle.
Thank you, everyone. Please continue to spread the word, if you can.


Okay, please someone else post something, preferably about LGBT issues or life or something. Don't let this straight cisgender guy hog the thread.

I hope the weekend will be good, I got 2 games, including one that I have no idea what it will be like... I'm having to create a character in a system I happen to own in my collections, but with which I'm largely unfamiliar... so I don't know if the guy will be well made enough.

TOp of the day and excellent weekend to ya'll

Sorry for being scarce of late, life's been a bit dark and I've been trying to avoid sharing that overmuch -- it has a kind of corrosive effect.

On the plus side, we finally got an *actual* manager at work versus a M.I.N.O. (Manager In Name Only) who has the *right* philosophy about busting ass and getting the old crap out of the store.

It makes me a bit nostalgic, even.

Okay, update time.

Spoiler:
I made a payment today from the gofundme. I can't put into words how amazing it felt to make such a large payment. For the second time since this whole thing started, I feel genuine hope that things may improve. After giving things some serious thought, I have decided to keep the gofundme going. We are still in a hole financially, although it is not nearly as deep as it was before. Please continue to spread the word, as the increased views are helping. Maybe this whole thing can be taken care of by the end of the month? I don't know, but I do know I can't thank you all enough.

Hard to give an opinion on this specific article that won't go into Grander Politics, but sadly the nature of humanity is that some people's faces will inevitably join the Leopards Eating People's Faces Party.

After what happened last month, I discovered that my Field of F!cks -- long barren, salted, and irradiated -- has seemingly overnight produced a bumper crop. Of knives. I have knives sprouting up faster than zucchinis, faster than kudzu.

No spoons. Only knives.

Edit: If you have people in your life who are sympathetic to LGBTIQ/QUILTBAG folks, equality, and basic human dignity, please take a moment or two to implore them to get out and vote for Democrats this November. If your area elects judges too, Google them for their decisions on LGBTIQ/QUILTBAG issues. Remind your people this isn't the time for protest votes or being unwilling to choose a less-than-perfect candidate. Convince them this is literally life and death for us (and other minorities too), because it is.

Some of the seeming throwaway comments in the article worry me/make me stand up and take notice. Primarily the idea that she has not encountered hate outside of a few specific individuals. Are the individual, disgusting voices tolerated by these who disagree so long as they win elections, or are they dismissed/forgiven outright/seen as eccentric?

Given the number of Republicans I met who think they personally penned the emancipation proclamation(and that I should directly thank them for it), the article makes me think.

On a positive note: the bariatric group I'm in on Facebook has 16,000 members and more than 90% are women. This is their first year doing an annual awards and they have put me in the running with everyone else. I'm not just in there, I'm currently in the lead by a wide margin. They all know that I'm trans. They all have seen current pictures of me. I'm certainly not the prettiest person in the group. It's really just a great feeling to be listed along with all the other ladies. It's an even better feeling that they are voting for me.

Okay, here is what I hope is the next to last update

Spoiler:
a large semi anonymous donation has us nearing the halfway point. I made another large payment not long ago and...yeah. it feels good. Really really good. Makes one man feel like a hundred, to paraphrase the greatest star wars movie ever made. Still keeping things going, as one ever knows with this rental company just what the problems are going to be, but I do feel like I am actually hurting this dragon. Please keep spreading the word. Maybe on Halloween we can give it a good scare.

So I'm getting back into an old homebrew project of mine: The Obedience Project. I did a little bit before then my motivation just dried up. But now I'm feeling it again!

If anyone here likes homebrew stuff and wants to give me their thoughts, feel free!

For Halloween, I'll be dressed as an overworked, underpaid, and unappreciated Security Guard. Which will mimic real life.

I'm sorely tempted to wear my black button-down shirt, my black suitcoat, polish my shoes, and a white tie.

Concerns, though, that folks may think I'm 'made' plus also pain in the butt to work in suit and tie.
