    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    Sounds like Brigid knows she's cute and is figuring out how to take advantage of it. "If I say it's a twenty, it's a twenty because I'm cute. It doesn't matter that I'm rolling a d8, if I say it's a twenty it is..." or she is practicing to be a mean DM, all her monsters roll natural twenties at all times. Either way, cute (at least at her current age)

    Because it causes the dreaded i-d-ten-t error?

    A I stated earlier in the thread, my job is cutting air/furnace filters to odd sizes to fit customers' air returns. My Brother and I (2 of the 4 people that do this job for my company and the only 2 on the weekend shift) cut 1720 filters today in the course of 12 hours. Weekend shift is nice for the 4 days off, but working 3 consecutive 12 hour days does get tiring by the end, and this weekend we lose an hour of sleep due to the start of daylight savings time Sunday morning. At least I'm not working when the time changes like I used to, that was never fun you would lose an hour in the spring and then in the fall not get paid for the repeated hour either.

    Norway's version of "The View" sounds so much better/more calming that that in the US.

    Ham hocks are seasoning meat, slice thin and use to season "southern" style vegetables, usually green bean, Lima/butter beans (same bean usually, just cooked a bit differently), collards (though I don't recommend eating anything that can make your house smell like a urinal), turnips, etcetera.

    I had to re-read the original post to catch that it seems to have been a dream, I'm glad that it wasn't real; this is too idyllic a place for the petty squabbles found on the rest of the Internet to be allowed to taint it.

    I finished this past week (pay period is 2 weeks that ended yesterday) with 65.32 hours. My actual shift is supposed to be 36 hours. Sometimes it pays to be good at your job and sometimes it doesn't, not sure which of those this past week has been.

    I just seem to have the ability to make lights that are best described as dodgy to turn off in my presence. Seriously if a light has trouble igniting or the ballast is starting to fail, it will usually go out as I approach and will turn back on as I leave the area, though i have seen a few fail catastrophically as I approached. Never had any problems with other electronics, just lighting. Being that I am not a fan of overly bright lights anyway, I've never complained about this quirk.

    Start of third week at new job, get a new position and a raise. I could get used to this, though it won't happen again any time soon. If any of you order your furnace/ac filters through a subscription based service, there is a 1-in-2 chance that it came from my company. And if it is a custom size, a 1-in-5 chance I may have cut it as of today.

    Stomach virus making the rounds of my house, my sister's house, and my aunt's house. I managed to pull a muscle in my back forcefully emptying my stomach through the in door, so all day spent in bed doing a whole bunch of nothing, bed spread is soaked in sweat and I feel like someone dumped a bucket of water on me. Though i I am not going through a breakup, I had to listen to this song... https://youtu.be/DT1cNPcSAh0

    Isn't that the usual after effects of getting married, you become Mrs. (whatever his/her last name is) to most people. Even if you don't take your partner's last name. ETA: This, of course, assumes that you are a woman, otherwise you would become Mr. (whatever his/her last name is).

    Judging by the age that I started wandering around work muttering about "those damned kids", I'd say 22. Then again, I worked in retail in electronics and toys, so...
