Have you ever looked for your favorite whisk and given up and used your least favorite whisk. And then after using your least favorite whisk for nearly the whole time, you need a whisk to give it a fresh whisk and you just grab one from somewhere without thinking and suddenly you have your favorite whisk in your hand.

And then as you type it out you realize it would all make a lot more sense if you added a "ey" to the end of whisk.

The bird, not a crazy person.

Could be a were-loon who is also a crazy person. Or a were-loon who is also a Canadian dollar.

Was it wearing loon pants?

You know what I need? a Linky Longears alias.

Great! Now I also have to remember what top o' the page means here.

Sounds like a good idea to me.

So you've leveled up and just gained access to Whiskspace?

If it was Whiskyspace, you'd have an incredible superpower.

Musical Interlude - A song about dinosaurs.


A different song about dinosaurs.

Korean accordion time


A fly is flying around the house, rousing me to action!

I assume the resulting chase will look something like this, except with more hair, like Buster combined with Brad Pitt in Legends Of The Fall.

Taking the kids to the Lodi fair tonight, should be terrible.

The kids will love it because it's a fair.

At least Lodi is one of those annoying saccharin Pleasantville-esque towns with a barely hidden dark side.

Hopefully Jeff Bridges has already switched over to color and Pennywise has murdered Toby McGuire.

Or was that just my Pleasantville-It fan fiction crossover.


So of course the kids gotta be difficult.

Naturally I used the "I'm doing this for you, but if you're going to be difficult we don't have to go" line.

They should behave now. :-)

We have a sandbox for Tiny T-Rex, that hasn't been used in a month, maybe more. Next to it is a patch of dirt that the moles like to caper in and loosen up (I suspect they're drunk or something because they go in all sorts of weird circles) and that is where Tiny T-Rex has his dig site all set up. :-)

Tiny T-Rex is watching 80s TMNT movie and Shredder walks in wearing a shiny black cape. Tiny T-Rex sounds a bit confused as he says "His clothing, is a trash bag"

Captain Yesterday to the ride operator of the Dragoncoaster at the fair after riding it with Tiny T-Rex "thank you, that was a lot of fun!"

Ride operator: thanks! I've never heard a parent tell me that before!"

It's always great that first year when kids start to really notice the wider world around them. :-)

Why some say Tiny T-Rex's eyes grew ten sizes that day when he rounded the corner and the whole fair lay out before him.


Musical Interlude - The terrible part of summer, all the f!~$ing mosquitoes! So here's a song about mosquitoes! Enjoy!

No rain = No mosquitos. Instead we got fire. And smoke, lots of smoke. I must say, I'm a little tired of breathing smoke.

The dog thought I wasn't paying attention and thought he'd get to roll around in s%@!.

Shows him, I was paying partial attention and used my Action Packed Super Leash Yanking Action™ to avoid a whole giving the dog a bath fiasco.

Uh oh! Sounds like you got a little Riffer getting started there.

At what point do you intend to move him onto He-Man?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

C'mon, this is me you're talking about.

Both my kids have been watching He-Man and She-Ra almost since birth.

Same with Inspector Gadget, Bravestarr, Looney Tunes, and Spongebob Squarepants. :-)

Off to work where I hope to avoid working. Except for the fun stuff like f&##ing with stoned teenagers and hauling stuff to people's cars or helping someone find that one toy we only have one of and they describe as "blue and rolls or something" or "a grey monster that has big teeth and Billy had at his house" (the Sarlaac Beast from Star Wars, I finally figured out).


There are a group of kids at work that communicate over long distances by screeching as high as they can, like some sort of Lord Of The Fliesified Marco Polo.

I genuinely fear for my safety.

I think I'll hide in back for the first 3 hours.


New game sure to be discontinued.

Simon Optix.

I'll be shocked if it doesn't cause seizures.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

Break time!!!


Should've mentioned in my opener anyone is welcome to post/share/whatever.

Action!Town! is open to everyone. :-)


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

Back to work!


Yay! Monthly toy propaganda is back! And it's more circuitous then ever to get to it.

This will go well with my new eyebrow scar.

Also, you're looking at the new graduate of Geoffrey University.

Congrats Captain. What did you go for?

Side Note:

Captain, you are reminding me of the eleven years I worked in retail.

Started pushing carts and bagging groceries. Cleaned up the occasional mess.

Then I got transferred. My domain became everything from toys to hardware and the small amount of automotive.

Fast forward a bit and since I had been there for, well, longer than most anyone else, my responsibilities changed to "doing whatever anyone anywhere needed because I could get it done."

Unloading a truck, restocking anything, assembling anything, running a register, managing the fish tanks, even closing my half the store for 3rd shift.


Aye, a congrats be in order. Just remember to keep your floors clean or I may have to come over, clobber ya with my mop, and then clean 'em myself.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

Oh I don't get paid enough to mop the floors.


*grumbles*
Neither do I...


Wait, you get paid to mop the floors?

How convenient!

How to freak out your significant other in three simple steps.

1. Put in an episode of something with a confrontation with police in the kitchen while she is in the other room.

2. Turn the volume up so you can hear it while doing dishes.

3. Step outside the back door to water the garden and scrub the bird bath just as the confrontation with police on the show starts to escalate.

Warning! They will be pissed, doubly so if that's how they wake up.

Oopsy doodle!

My dad looked at a Buddhist retreat he might move to, in Blue Mounds.

That would mean us taking in his dog but it's the least we can do. :-)

Turns out I forgot my wife has vacation this week.

Which, in hindsight explains the whole "Whoo hoo! Vacation!!" she said at the end of last week.


Damn, allergies!


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I know your pain. :(


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

Luckily it's not so painful, just gotta blow my nose more. Sleeping might be difficult tonight, but I'll burn that bridge when I get there. :-)

Clearly it's the Whisk of Omens, which will fly to your hand upon command, and also give you Souffle beyond Souffle.

The best part, it came with a Melissa and Doug children kitchen set Pea Bear got for her third birthday, ten years ago.

It's a really sweet whisk.

A +1 whisk with a returning enchantment?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

Two daddy long leg spiders are fighting it out above the dog's food dish.

Which is empty.

Charlotte, they ain't.


Maybe they are, maybe they ain't. Who can really know?


Ice Bear knows.


NOTHING!! THERE I FINISHED YOUR SENTENCE!! HAH!


False!

The answer is grizzly bears.


You can't tell me what to do! I'm the High Commander!!


You're not my supervisor!!!!
