    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    If the pledge manager extension is meant to cover a delay in overall production and delivery... I would be okay with that. No, seriously. It means less chance my shiny new paints will be delivered in a snow storm.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I don't wanna go to work. I wanna go back to sleep so I can avoid this weird summer cold. How do colds happen in summer anyway? I've never had this before, it's weird. Gonna go to work and stare at taxpayer accounts for 8 hours. Mostly stare. My head isn't up for thinking right now.

    Today it hit me. It suddenly hit me. I live in Philadelphia. This is home now. I no longer live in Los Angeles. But wait, I hear you say. Haven't you lived in Philly for a year now? Yes, yes I have. Exactly one year this Saturday. But it only hit me now. It was the radio that did it. I was listening to FM radio via smartphone at work and suddenly it hit me hard. As in 'tears welling up' hard. I've listened to music at work before. All the time. But Pandora is not FM radio with a DJ and things. Audiobooks do not have ads. Radio... does. Dunno what my point is. But I felt it needed to be said.

    I'm a bear. Rawwwr. Not due to some quiz or something, this is a thing that dates back 25 years. I still have some of my bear fetishes from my teenage years. I do best in life when I eat a bear-like diet (fish, nuts, honey, fruits, green things, the occasional deer carcass). Now I even have a job that gets me time off on furlough every year (I hope) so I can have my 3 months of sleeping in.

    That doesn't make any sense to me, either. I heard that yesterday while I was looking at fresh hams. It was weird. Then I figured out what it really means. "We don't own a pan big enough for that giant chunk of meat". Ok then, that makes more sense and is something I can fix.

    Nope. I should join the American Chemical Society before they realize I'm not a chemist anymore and it was my math degree that got me my job. Keep putting it off tho.

    Nope. Should have just called out. Too butthurt to sit at a desk all day like a good little cubicle dweller. I lasted an hour. Good thing I still have sick leave saved up.

    So... Dr's office was running on time. And their solution to 'make sure the injection doesn't cause chest pain' may lead to a new problem. A problem with sitting down. I... guess I'm going to work. And being uncomfortable.

    We need a facepalm reaction emoji. It'd be so useful...

    I have a dr's appointment in 2 hours. I know I'll miss some work. The question becomes, do I put in the extra work at the dr's office to miss all of the work? IE, do I ask for a note? I might. Last time I had this type of appointment I scared some people because chest wall pain on the left side looks really scary. Does 'having to convince people I'm fine every 10 minutes' count as 'affecting my work'?

    I used to love Brush Fire Season. It was hot and dry and the sun would often turn red due to the smoke in the air. The smell was great, too, the faint smell of wood smoke subtly overpowered the stench of city and smog. Now that I've escaped from LA and live in a place with real seasons... I dunno yet. Still waiting to see if we have to deal with Spider Season, my least favorite.

    I timeshare my cubicle so... no. I mean, I could but I don't think I'd get these things back. Other people do but they go the disposable route with cheap junk. I can get away with t-shirts because while we do have a dress code I have a boss who comes to work... shall we say 'not to code'.

    Last night our orc bard had a bit of a rude awakening. He's upped his AC to absurd and had decided that because he's big and orcish and a flamboyant bard that means his absurd AC will mean something. All the monsters will attack him, right? Get them all to waste their actions on his pointlessly high AC so monsters can be fought easily with a minimum of heal spells. He forgot the most important part. He cast his spells, rushed in on monster, and forgot to attack. No actions left to attack. Instead his party members, including the actual front-line fighter, charged in and fought all the things. All the int 2 things that tried to eat the PCs who hurt it. Orc didn't take a single hit. Even the sorcerer got shot at more than he did. Orc was sad. Orc should learn from this. Orc has low int. Orc may not learn. The Great God [redacted] will use this against our orc later.

    So I get home from work and what do I find in the building foyer? Free beer! Seriously. Someone left 5 bottles of cider under the table in the foyer. I took one because why not? It's 130am, if someone wanted to remember their beer they'd have remembered it by now. It's... mediocre. I have the feeling I'll be leaving the remaining bottles below for someone else to thieve. Still, free beer.

    I am awake. I go back to work today after a week off. Two days until weekend. I blew all my leave and $1000 on plane tickets and it's all over. Not even sure it was worth it.
  16. That is the best way to buy PP minis, I find. Not at full price and because they look good. It's how I picked up the Great God [redacted], I mean, the Dracodile.

    I am home! Philadelphia actually feels like home, when did that happen?! But... I had to leave my dog behind again. He's with my parents who adore him so he's fine but still! I has a sad

    I shall be delightfully considering this as I plot some upcoming stories. Hmmm... Today we are flying out to Los Angeles. We return on Tuesday. We're visiting family, meeting/seeing cousins I don't remember having and will inspire disappointment in, gorging on Mexican food, and saying our final goodbyes to my 98 year old grandmother (for the third time).

    I know, I know, it's not an animal buuuuut... The amoeba. In bio class I watched video of one eating a paramecium it's own size. The paramecium thrashed and panicked and tried to escape all to no avail...

    I have time off this weekend! I'm taking 3 days off to... ...visit family in Los Angeles... Looking forward to the food. Looking forward to seeing my brother, my dad, my dog. Not looking forward to saying my final goodbyes to my grandmother. (These will be the third final goodbyes I've said to the woman.) Definitely not looking forward to the flight.

    I'm hoping for furlough toward the end of summer. I hope it's just soon enough that I can relax after this year but just far off enough that I get full unemployment.

    Nah, garlic and spices. And some smoked cheddar on top for me. Needed onions.

    Ugh. I have a benadryl hangover. Need coffee. I'm fine, never had to hit the ER, never even needed my inhaler. Just a fistful of benadryl. Which... is the same thing the ER would have done so...
