She was known to hoot... usually after the whiskey but before the muscle relaxant...

I'm a smidge punchy. I had the day off AND nothing pressing to do. I've taken four naps.

This could be the best day ever.

I know everyone who wishes they had a means of time traveling into the past ponders about killing Hitler as baby or not, but what I'd do is attempt to convince younger me to enjoy every available napping opportunity that presents itself.

Cal, you're still not old enough for how I misread that.

Moving weekend is upon us. Not looking forward to it.


Good luck! It'll be worth it.


Hi, everyone!


Hey, John! What's going on?


Working. No four-day weekend for me. I have to pull the used tickets from the exit gates, and place them with the tickets from last week. I swear, these idiots don't deserve jobs managing garages.

Heh, I managed a video rental store for about a year once. My staff was...marginally competent. My son was about 8 and went to work with me one day. He asked if he could work at my store, but I told him he wasn't old enough. His reply? "If you let those other bozos work here you should let me." While this didn't get him hired, he wasn't wrong.

Heh. One the players in my Strange Aeons campaign just emailed to say he'd drifted off for an afternoon nap and had a dream about Ustalav...

Muhahahaha!

I helpfully told him that if his character died in the dream, he dies in real life.

I LOVE THAT SONG!!!


So today's dog drama was mostly due to the fact I think both my dogs are getting a little tired of being my brother's dog entertainment. That and Conwy ripped off/broke Rory's collar...and now we'll have to get a new one.

Also my neighbor up the street wants me to walk her Siberian Husky...I get the feeling while she's happy her dog is being walked, she's a little less thrilled by some of my choices...though to be fair I didn't choose directions when the dog wants to go. Still, it will be an extra 50 dollars in my pocket even if I won't get to sleep in like I had hoped.

Mostly I think Mom is tired of being around this house with noisy dogs and me. Though who knows...I don't see why going to my dad's old home/farm in PA would be that inviting to some. But she's going and while part of it is for getting the house power washed...I still wonder why she's staying for almost a week.

Other than that, I'm glad I've got enough food until next week I think.


There's always MREs to fall back on...lol. We have a military surplus store in a town not far from where we live. We used to go there when my son was younger and get them because he really thought they were neat. And they were cheap.


Where at in PA?


I posted it in the Music forum, but it's so good Imma post it again.

About to clock out. Have a good weekend, everyone.


You, too!

Central PA, just about an hour south of Harrisburg.

Cal,

I've had MRA. I wouldn't want to live on them.

I miss it...LOL. I'm 55, now, and I find myself dwelling on the 80s a lot. Too much, I'm sure. The early to mid-80s was the happiest time of my life.

That unforgettable spring of 1983... Ms. Pac-man struck a blow for women's rights and a young Joe Piscopo taught us how to laugh.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

It was a time of titans.


1980s were decent for me. It also had more snow then in the winter.

Plus my first dog...I miss Tucker. :P


I miss my dog, Mutt. He was my best friend. And you're right about the snow. And in the 70s it seemed we got even more. I can remember on the farm trudging through 18" of snow carrying a newborn calf that couldn't make his way through it. And it snowed even more later.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I was technically there for the 80s, the second half of it at least.

I don't remember squat, but I was there.


Calling Santa Monkey! Calling Santa Monkey! Vidmaster7 has started a Late Night Forum and he said animal acts are welcome!


I remember chasing Tucker in a snow storm around Christmas...it wasn't fun but he had fun.

Also later on we tried to get him to pull our yellow plastic sled...and ended up in a ditch.

But yeah, the 80s and parts of the 90s, the weather seemed...normal? I guess.


Yeah. I'm not trying to start a political fight, but it does seem things have changed.

<Aged wizzie sticks head into thread>

Hello! Finally found a brief moment to get online, AND my aging laptop is deciding to behave. We'll see how long THAT lasts. :P

Had a brief hectic but enjoyable visit with family. Now dropping son off to Space Camp in Huntsville Sunday morning.

THEN a blissful week of alone-with-wife-time for a week in Huntsville and surrounding areas. A Whole WEEK of date nights! :)

Gotta go, later all!

Welcome back...er, bye!

My guys have asked me to tone down the Lovecraftian stuff in our games for a while. They were afraid I was getting obsessed. I was, but I'm not admitting it to them. This creature would be great for that!


Ugh. I feel like there's a 1/10 of a second lag in my actions today. Everything sort of feels out of phase or something. Anyone else ever feel like this?

Only when attempting any form of sports. Or trying to flirt.


Wow, same here! The only sport I was ever any good at was fencing while in college and I WAS pretty good. Today I wonder if I'd know which end of a foil to use.

As for flirting, ugh. For me, it was realizing I was being flirted with. I always thought girls were just being friendly. I could never pick up on the nuances.

Pommel strikes are a thing, though FOR SOME REASON frowned upon in Olympic fencing.

That's why I believe in RAI over RAW LOL. The fencing classes I took were really just as much fun as they were work. Sometimes we would divide up into two groups and then just have at it until the last person was "standing". Pommel Strikes WERE a thing then.

Well, the blunt end could be used for hammering in nails. Oh, wait, they're both blunt. I meant the bigger one. :-)

Edit: one of these days I'll remember to read the whole sub-thread before replying. :-)

Hello, everyone!


Guten Morgen, meine Damen und Herren! Wie gehts!

Ok, that's nearly all of the German I remember from college. How is everyone today?


Doing okay. My relief is due soon.


Ah, sweet relief. I hope they arrive quickly!


2 people marked this as a favorite.

My relief is in. Have a good day, everyone.
