I positively suck at following maps. I was told in college I may have discalculia (or whatever it's called) and that makes map reading very difficult. It took me 40 minutes to find a place 3 miles from my house. I made it to my destination (FedEx shipper) by spotting a one of the trucks and following it.

No Orienteerng merit badge for you then. :-)

Dammit! See I told you! This is all a plot by Grodd and the Ultra-Humanite to replace us with cybernetic simians.

Hmm...

I wasn't permitted to view that show as a youth, on account of it being "violent". Me and my brother feigned ill and contagious to watch an episode while the parent was at church. Got caught in the act, too. For all the risks we took, I don't remember a thing about the show any more . . .


My sister was (is) very protective of what her kids watch.
She wouldn't even let them watch all of the star wars movies when they were younger. Now one is in High School and watching I don't know how many fighting animes. To make up for lost time I guess. :)


Sigh.

I was sick earlier this week. I thought I gave myself food poisoning when I made some homemade meatballs. (The ground turkey smelled questionable, but the date said good,... so,...) :P
Yep, I won't do that again!
>_<

Turns out I must have picked up a stomach bug from somewhere. My wife got it yesterday. She was up ALL night. :P
(NOT how she wanted to get a 3-day weekend from work)

Stoopid tummy bugs. Go away.

Welp, time to go and soak the entire house in Lysol!

:)

I think I saw it when I was 4 or something. I don't really remember anything, but I think it's Samurai Jack levels of violence.

Sorry about the flu-bug Rags~ look on the bright side you are making the human herd stronger. That is if you pass on your genes. "I don't know anything about birthing any babies!"
Magehunter, I loved Samuri Jack. I have a high threshold for violence, so if violence is relevant to the story then it was ok. I was a murder-hobo from the days of Greyhawk.

Samurai Jack WAS awesome.
Even that shortened final season they made was good, just too rushed.

Samurai jack made people want to be Samurai again, instead of ninjas!
;P

Yeah, I dont know WHAT the heck is trying to take out my family from the inside. But it's getting old really quick. :P

I've done passed on ALL of the genes I plan on passing down. Thank you.
My oldest has already given me grandkids, and my youngest still has 3 more years left of High school.

I'm WAY too old to be waiting ANOTHER 18+ years before I can retire!
>_<

Day 2 without a computer. I can hear them at night, scratching and rustling inside the walls. I see them in the darkened corners of rooms in my house or sitting on shelves mocking me. Books. Books everywhere.

Books can be dangerous.

Isn't there a wizard or magus archetype where you smack foes about with your grimoire?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Yes, it's in Horror Adventures, it's the second best Inquisitor archetype (behind Vampire Hunter, of course).

I do like a good book.


I was just thinking books are only dangerous if they are penned by immortal beings from between the spaces...but that sort of describes some of the memoirs/personal accounts coming out about the current executive and his crew...

In any case...pulling intercostal muscles SUCK.


What are intercostal muscles?


Pain. So much damned pain. I can't read or watch television with getting so fidgety that I have to stop. April 3rd can't get here fast enough.

Far be it from me to criticize someone for venting to the internet - the hypocrisy would be palpable. Sometimes one just needs to confirm that the people out there care. I guess what I'm saying is: don't self-censure out of fear that we don't want to hear it when you're having a piss-poor day. The people out here care.


DungeonmasterCal wrote:

Glorious, glorious rib meat.

So yeah, when you pull an intercostal or three, it hurts to breathe.

Vankyre,

It didn't hurt to breathe so much as it was a constant twinge/pull around my left armpit/left breast. (Yes guys have breasts...) But I assumed it was intercostal since if it was a heart attack, I'm pretty sure I'd have been dead like last Tuesday...

The upper ones aren't *as* bad. The lower ones that are closer to your diaphragm are a bear when they get pulled.

You probably did it while walking an overactive pup.

I keep reading "intracoastal muscles" which I can only assume is the name of a fitness chain along the ICW.

I've got a few things I want to get off my chest...

Hi. I'm Quibblemuch's court-appointed caretaker. He'll be taking an internet break for the foreseeable future. But he wanted me to tell you "'Apple Jacks don't even taste like apples' is scientifically demonstrably the most nonsensical ad campaign in history."

That and the news my desktop PC will be home this week made my day.

Monkey Santa, while I am no sort of a medical professional, I'm pretty sure it'd be worth your while seeing a vet if there are livid green stripes all over your legs.

Pffft. Those are to warn predators I’m venomous. Or am I? Try me! HOOOHOOOOT!!

Considering I have SEVERAL over active dogs that I care for (two of whom are my own) it's entirely possible. So far no lower ones...probably because my gut is already at its max. :p ;)

quibble,

I wish it was. Then I wouldn't have gone there. Mostly because my exercise consists of walking. I only run when I'm being chased by something trying to kill/eat/do bodily harm to me.

Not that Quibblemuch doesn't need assistance, (Don't we all?) :)

But I think that Monkey Santa is in much more need of a court-appointed caretaker. (or ANY caretaker, really) than Quibble is.

Hmmm. No news today of the desktop PC being shipped (I was told it would be) and I get an email saying the laptop has not arrived at it's repair center. I'll have to call them tomorrow with the tracking number.

I smell cyber shenanigans a-brewin'. If this keeps up it will be back to stone knives and bear skins around here.

I'll get right on it, just as soon as I finish repairing the cou--I mean, car. What's probably happened is your token ring needs to be uploaded. Maybe blown out. If that doesn't work, I'll have to defrag your motherboard. Figure 500 in parts... 350 in labor... call it 1400 even.

Deal! Do you accept pay in IOUs and wheedling excuses?

Nope. And I oughta monkey pounce you just for suggesting it.

I do however, accept Red Bull and banana brandy. It's a little cocktail I like to call a King Kong.

Red Bull, huh? You know that stuff causes strokes, right? Maybe you shouldn't dri...never mind. Salud!

Oh god! Cal, did you give Monkey Santa Red Bull?! I'm never going to get him down now.

I finally got some good computer news today. My desktop unit arrives tomorrow. Not only did they replace the video card they installed a second hard drive; a solid state one!

The laptop didn't arrive at the HP repair center until today, with 2 days of warranty to spare! So just under the wire. Whew!


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Woooooo!!


Welp, desktop computer came home today and it won't open Windows. The unit boots up fine but that's it. Spent 2 hours on the phone with the very tech who repaired and even tested it 6 times before shipping it back. Both of us tried absolutely everything we could think of to no avail. He feels really awful about it and I believe him. So as a last ditch effort he's mailing me a thumb drive with the recovery program on it. He even gave me his personal phone number to work on the computer if the drive arrives on Saturday. Very frustrated. Coupled with somehow hurting my knee more I'm ashamed to admit I broke down. I wish I could still drink. It's been a crapgasmic day.

Sorry to be such a downer today, guys. I see my new shrink tomorrow so she'll be the one to listen to me drone on.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Argh!

*shakes fist in solidarity*


Damnit! Hope that gets sorted soon, Cal.


Wow. Computer shenanigans for the anti-win.

Are we SURE that Monkey Santa wasn't working as a PC repair tech this week?!?

>_>

<_<

O_o

Hope it gets fixed soon! I know the feeling. :)
