Another lovely day on Planet Earth.

CH, in the spirit of quiet alone "boring" time. Idk if you saw the picture I posted on my social networks of the place I was landscraping at yesterday. It was this tiny little cove, with an enormous old summer palace on its headland. I was inspired by the sight to come up with a piratical wizard who kept his ship, Fireball in the cove while he and his crew lived in his giant mansion. There would be a water elemental living in the cove, and a garden of dangerous plants leading to the mansion itself.


Darn inside out shirt. Always tugs at my neck weird.

Like they do in Tennessee
Just send me to hell or New York City
It would be about the same to me

There is a thriving country scene here, growing due to the bullriding championships coming to Madison Square Garden. That said, it is seasonal, appearing only when the championships are about.

Did you take that lozenge? Because your voice is off.


*Sigh* Ended up killing off another PC last night. Nearly killed the entire party. The party are truly scared of demons now though :P They hammered dretch and Abrikandilus but Babaus and Nabasus scare the s!!% out of them now lol

They have cold iron weapons so the DR wasn't the issue. The fact the Nabasu successfully managed to summon a second Nabasu. And little known fact Nabasus have sneak attack and 2 of the bastards going at a person with sneak attack was really brutal :(

I'm sorry, I must agree to disagree with this statement. :P

Perhaps, depending upon the City, and how good it's transportation system works, a car is not a requirement. (I'm looking at YOU NYC, where it is obviously much easier to travel via public than find a parking spot!) ;P

But Tulsa? New Orleans? No way in heck would I be caught without my own vehicle there! :)

Oh, you poor Yankees and your delusions.

Except for that "El Paso" part. I've heard it can be truly infernal.

And the clam chowdah part. Probably one of the Northeast's truly worthwhile contributions to human civilization.

Don't stop—just drive through—and you'll eventually arrive at a land where health care is paid for and people are polite! :D

EDIT- Or by 'Big' you meant 'City with NO spaces between buildings. At all.' ? ;)

Yeah... But it's a DRY heat, lol

I will miss a good chowdah if I move. But I'm sure I will make frequent trips back.


Last trip to class. Headed in to my final final

Ugh. Over studied. I can't keep my mind on this stuff

You always miss some foods when you move, but wherever you are usually has its own good cuisine to replace it.

Unless you move to Missouri. There is nothing there worth eating.

Patrick, did your driving instructor ever show up?

Silver Crusade

My nose is running like a faucet. I will blame it on allergies, but I don't have a good feeling about it. Too slow and steady for my liking :(

No. I was quite verklempt

Turns out there was an emergency or something. Still would have been nice to get a call

GOOD MORNING TREEFORTNAM!!!

It's Friday, for those who follow such things. I am headed out to try bus driving yet again, in the hopes that someone is there today.

I actually have the evening off. I'm wondering if I should make a long trip to Worcester to see a show. Otep is playing, but that's a 2 1/2 hour trip either way. Plus I'm pretty broke still, and it's been a long week with finals and all.

Might be a good time to start rebooting my PbPs

WORD!

So regarding the earlier conversations and such with regards to cities and crowds and preferences.

Due to some internet prompting, I took the Myers-Briggs Personality Test for the first time a couple days ago. Discovered I am very heavily and extremely typical INTP-T personality. With 100% on the Introvert scale, no less; N, T, and -T were all over 70% as well, with P a little over 50%. Scint always gets INTJ, and I could definitely see bits of myself in the J section, so it's probably not as surprising that I got closer to half-and-half on that part.

So yeah, that explains a LOT about my dislike of cities and crowds and my disinterest in what they have to offer.

Silver Crusade

Since I want to be one of the cool kids, I just took the test as well.

I need to find out if I have ADD or not.

Shadow Lodge

What'd you get? =)

Silver Crusade

ENFP, "The Campaigner"

Mid to high 60s for extraversion, prospection, and emotion, 85 ish for intuition and turbulence.

So that's fun.

Shadow Lodge

Yeah, one of the guys in one of my PnP groups got that one.

I'm a strong INTP as well, and I small towns make me twitchy. I lived in an apartment in a very small town for a couple of years. Every time I stopped in a store, people wanted to talk to me - who am I, where am I living, where am I from, where do I work. My neighbors were always sitting outside and checking on where I'd been and why I didn't come home last night and who I had been with. When I changed a tire on my new car (because I had never changed a tire and wanted to do it where it was safe), they all came out and watched me and commented. "Pretty girl like you don't need to be changing tires. You can get a man to do it." Everybody always up in my business. It was a nightmare.

Living in the city, my neighbors only cared that I didn't make noise. Nobody cared if I came home at 6 pm or 3 am. Any time I got a wild hair, I could hop the El and go to the symphony or opera or art museum or library and see and hear the best things humanity has to offer. Nobody bothered me. Nobody struck up idle conversations. Clerks at stores didn't give a rat's ass about who I was or where I was from. There was generic hassle from guys, but you get that anywhere. It was heaven.

You're never more alone than in a crowd in the middle of the city.

Shadow Lodge

This is the weird thing, I've never had these experiences.

I've never had someone just come up and start talking to me in a small town. That only happens to me in larger areas. The only places I got random people trying to strike up conversations was on the buses or Light Rail in Phoenix. In the small town I grew up in, I'd get the occasional random hello but nothing more from passersby. I never had the nosy neighbors or constant questions. Maybe it's cause I'm a guy?

I've heard the "alone in a crowd" argument but it just doesn't hold water for me. The physical presence of the crowd itself is a large part of the problem, not just the desire of parts of that crowd for interaction. I need some damn elbow room.

Between this and the thread about strictness in raising kids from a year or two ago, I'm starting to wonder if I live in a small personalized bizarro world. My experiences just do not match up with anybody else on the internet.


I've had people chat me up on light rail in Denver, but they're usually tourists. Denver is also a small city, about the size of St. Louis, which is too small. Cities that roll up their sidewalks at 5 p.m. give me the creeps. City that never sleeps - that's for me!

Shadow Lodge

I keep bringing it up because I just seriously don't get it. I've never had the positive experiences, the comfortable engagements or lack thereof that people seem to associate with big-city living; that sort of thing has always been exclusively a small-town thing in my experience.

People always talk about how small-town people are always getting into each other's business, but again that hasn't been my experience; most of the time in small towns that I've lived in I've been completely ignored, everyone leaves everyone else to their own space, while in bigger cities is where I'd always have to deal with random people trying to chat or people constantly coming to my door or neighbors always wanting to bother me with questions.

I'd get some random person knocking at my apartment door at least twice a month when I lived in Phoenix. When I moved back to Chattanooga with my parents, we never got unexpected visitors once, and the only knocks came from delivery service people. Since moving to Fort O a couple of years ago, it's happened all of once [not counting maintenance or apartment staff visits].

I didn't ever feel alone in a big city. I always felt penned in, crowded, cramped, and constantly being watched. I always felt like I couldn't move without running into someone. That I could never just spend time alone because there were so many people and that you couldn't go anywhere without running into someone. There was no space because it was all taken up with people.

So hearing so many people say that's what their experiences have been like is utterly baffling to me, and I can't make sense of it. It's so completely opposite from the entirety of my own life.
