I'm surprised you guys remember that. Actually, wait, it's probably a good thing if you don't.
of course I remember! It was a b!**@ing evening!

That it was.


2017.

How frigging science-fictiony that sounds to my old-ass ears.


Hard to believe how deep we are into the 21st Century now


We might not have flying cars, but we might get self-driving ones soon


Whelp. Happy New year everyone. We're one hour into 2017 here on the Canadian west coast.. Let's hope it's all Sunny Ways from this point.

just 16 years. Not deep at all.

Now when we can buy the new century a beer, that's when you worry.


16 years is deep. There are parents out there that never set foot in the 20th Century.


Is it 2050? No. But the 20th is now long gone. The Nineties kids all groan about how things have changed and wax nostalgic for Sega Genesis and Pokémon


happy new year everyone

Well s+@&...


In other news, it looks like my computer's on its last legs. Given that I have basically no money for a replacement, there's a good chance this will be my last post for a long while.


Oooooohhhhhh.....spooooooookyyyyyy......

Also, in the words of Billy Ray Valentine, Merry New Year!


Sorry about earlier. Got word a few days ago that a good friend from my Army days was injured while working as a civilian contractor from splinters caused by an IED. :(

Meh. It's all good. Hope your buddy wasn't too badly hurt and has a speedy recovery.

in my hometown Gelnhausen, yesterday the Unicorn Apothecary closed after beeing in buisness for 434 years, founded 1582.
the interiour was unchangd since the last refurbishing in 1850.

the closing is due to difficulties in meeting pharamcy regulations and historic site regulations at the same time and fewer customers due to no parking space right in front of the building, you had to walk almost 100 meters o.O

:-(

So do I. But one of these times, I may surprise myself.

I do. And a hotel reservation. If you are thinking of going I still need a roomie

The problem I have found is if you are practical you never do anything fun. I played it safe from 2000-2015. 1/3 of my life with almost no interesting memories. 2016 I made it to GenCon and NYC. I may be broke, but I am rich in experience


When is it May 26 to 29?


25-29? I think?

Thanks. Just muscle damage. Though, if he hadn't turned at the last second, the splinter would have "Kneecapped" him.

I resolve to try to be a better friend to those on Paizo's Mesageboards. I resolve to try to tone down my cynicism and sarcasm. I resolve to try to sit and watch all the way through my remaining un-watched anime titles.
And I resolve to try to be a better person throughout the coming year.

Take it from someone who used to take a lot of umbrage from things posted on this site. Disengage. It's not worth being angry over what some random stranger says or believes. Just enjoy the gaming, the camaraderie and the simple pleasure of sharing your life with others who have a commonality with you. Peace is something you cultivate inwardly. Allowing trolls to impact you negatively will only harm your inner equilibrium in the long run.

That's sad. It's amazing you have an apothecary that predates the settlement of Eastern North America (Vikings notwithstanding). What a loss!

Okay. I'll try to remember that. And, I'm sorry. I thought I was in better control of myself. I'll have to work on that, too.

I am broke because I am rich in experience :-)

That said I think I will go this year, the wife and kid may even come out for the first day.

Sorry so Late

Happy New Year! (Slightly belayed)

Good Riddance 2016! (Keep the memories of the good parts that you had, and blow the rest to smithereens!) ;)

Had a good trip to see my family in Oklahoma. (Less stress than usual) ;P

Made it back in one piece. (ALways good!) :)

Have to go to work tomorrow. (University is closed, but I still have to work? MAN I miss hourly.) :/

Did I mention Happy New Year? Oh, ok. Good.

Going to bed now.

:)

So, what part of the liquor store will you be found in? So that I might avoid that row.

I learned today that they will preserv the apothecary rooms and male them available for guided tours, thats something at least

and in the same street is an Inn called "The Lion" which was in the same family since 1506, until last year the widow of the last owner tricked her stepson out of the testament and sold it to someone else, grrrrrr at least it is still in buisness and mostly unchanged


I also resolve to try to learn how to speak Japanese, so that I may be of better use to the Anime convention I work for.

Well I'm still aiming for summer 2018 to visit Central Europe. Hopefully you can show me these wonderful places firsthand!

That reminds me. If I'm doing Central Europe in '18 I need to get my Geman up to the ask directions level.
