The more important statement is that drow rhymes with bough, but not rough, cough, though, or through.

BASK IN MY BLACK MANLINESS


Monkey House Rules are that top has inside-out clothes. No basking allowed.

In other news, my negative heel walking shoes have arrived, and are they comfortable! Not pain-free, but much better than the others.


What is a negative heel?

Is it anything like this?

Vice is my favorite character in king of fighters...Shermie is a close second...


My father passed away last night. Still coming to grips with the reality of his death. It's hard.

I will give you a bit of advice from someone who has dealt with close deaths and overwhelming grief. Let it flow. It hits everyone differently. I felt very strange when my daughter died. Almost like I was numb. I thought I should feel sad, but I didn't. I just felt numb. Then over the first week grief would well up at the strangest times. I broke down while opening my place of business because someone came before I was open and was upset I wasn't ready to serve them. I still have no idea why this triggered me.

The next year, grief would come when it wanted. No rhyme, no reason. It hit my ex differently. She became manic and eventually we separated over some of the changes in her personality which I attribute to her grief.

Just breathe. Lots of people will offer you help. Accept it in the spirit it is given. Grief makes people uncomfortable. That's natural. People want to help and make it better for you. They can't, but they mean well.

Don't deny how you feel, and don't expect you'll feel a certain way. I hope that your grief will treat you gently.

So i got my CDL permit today. I blew the school bus part, but I went back and redid it, no problem. Now I start to manhandle the big yellow bastards Monday morning.

Gratz on getting the CDL Patrick. I am sorry to hear that your daughter died and all of the pain that occurred because of it. I hope that you can forgive your ex for her actions. People do stupid stuff when they are hurting and in pain.

It is what it is. Our time is what it was. It is over and I have made my peace with that. I don't agree with the choices she has made, or the things she has done to me or my other daughter, but life is too short to dwell on the negative. Life is truly a wonderful thing. And we never know how much of it we have left.

Just understand that you have friends here. If you ever need to talk, we are here.

I appreciate this Sharoth. Some of the best people I have ever met have been on this messageboard. It really is a family, even if we never meet face to face.

That's one up on me. I still don't know what they were smoking when they made that, but I want none of it.


Nah I just mean I understand where the avatar a certain Slaad made came from. I don't really understand the actual commercial. I'm several orders of magnitude too old and too sober to understand that ..

Imagine someone in an ad firm somewhere had to pitch that. With a straight face. And the Mt Dew folks bought it.


That's what I get for tuning into MTV >.<

I remember when getting MTV was the Holy Grail of every teen. The barometer of cool. New videos were like movie premieres.

Now it's Catfish, Real World, and Teen Mom ....

Abandoned Awe: Old Space Sites Should Inspire Exploration


Another wonderful day! Fresh with possibilities!

I need to check out the local Y. I've been having an urge to swim lately.

I also need to look into a Krav Maga (sp?) class. It was recommended by a co-worker as the best self-defense course to take when you deal with actual combative people on a regular basis.

But first, Kindle and cardio. Great King Kalvan must deal with Styphon's Holy Host that has followed him to his new kingdom of Thagnor (also known as Detroit in Fourth Level Hispano-Columbian Europo-American sub sectors). And I must deal with the fact that age has not made my already poor metabolism any faster!

Krav Maga is okayish. Despite advertisements, it helps to be in shape with lots of upper body strength. It is a very cruel style of fighting. Get ready to deal with a lot of knuckle draggers, but that can happen in any martial art that gets popular.


Meh. I'm not looking for aesthetically pleasing. I'm looking for effective. And I deal with knuckle draggers daily. That's the reason I need some tricks up my sleeve. It's amazing how people act in a hospital.


Gods, what a glorious day! One to get the sap flowing!

Those following me on FB and Instagram I will post photos forthwith

Wasn't the goal for "the monstrosity" to be a combination of three things that people love? The idea was that the product...which I can't recall (making this a terrible commercial, in my opinion)...was supposed to be putting two or more "good things" together.

Unfortunately, it just showed me that, putting "good things" together in the wrong way leads to horror. I don't think that was the tagline they were going for.

Precisely. The amalgamation of three things together is not necessarily a good thing. And yet somehow this puppy-monkey-baby monstrosity was supposed to be good...and all it did is freak people out.

...and they are still running it (probably cost too much to just write off).


Game study day. Plus sister in law isn't doing so well :S Husband is a bit in a worried mood so I may have to try and cheer him up and sneak in some study.

I couldn't have said it better. Especially when one of the parts is a baby - just plain old bad advertising.


They got a lot of publicity from it.

I mistook the entire Krav Maga discussion to be about Kaer Maga. :-)

It was kind of confusing until I got it all figured out. :-)

Since I saw it for the first time yesterday, it was for Kickstarter, the execrable mutant offspring of Mt Dew. Their answer to the popular Monster energy liver punisher.


Off to the gym!

Sorry, Freehold, didn't see this. A negative heel is lower than the rest of the sole instead of being higher like in a normal shoe. Negative-heel shoes are still made/sold by Earth Shoe, but they're a lot better now than the clunky hippie clogs they used to be way back when. I have normal-looking trainers and a decent enough looking casual street shoe.

Is "shoe" right? I just had one of those mind-shifts where suddenly a word looks completely wrong.


How interesting...

I'll try on a pair and see if they feel right to me.


Oh the sweet sweet suffering


And yes, shoe is correct.
