    Getting To Know You August

    Going to go with TGP's rephrase. They all swore up and down I'd "grow out" of the desire to never have kids (but would instead get something that can take care of itself like a dog). Still don't want any, but I do want a pair of mischevious rascals... now the question is, are said rascals ferrets, fennecs, or Malamutes? :p

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    @Glitterwolf takes nice pictures of this and that. Apparently I had deer who wanted a ride in my work van, or something, because my work phone (iPhone SE) started tracking one of the two deer that got really close to my work van... Sadly, no pic of them being so close since I can't email the pic to myself until I get back to the office, so instead enjoy these pics... Usually they don't get this close to the parking lot at a secured customer's place.. 3x zoom on my personal phone... 5x hybrid zoom on personal phone. Two of the young bucks apparently thought my truck smelt reaaaally nice, and got really really close... Like rear bumper close. Like, if I hadn't closed the sliding door, I suspect it would have been a call to fish and wildlife asking how to get two deer out of the back of my work van close... Oh, and the smoke? That's courtesy of the BC forest fires...

    lol, wow that keyboard update to my phone did some seriously messed up things. I so wrote ten.... I'm keeping that typo up in that post, because, yeah, why not. It also randomly added various swears I never use, so have to watch out for those randomly popping in...

    Sweet, that means just two and a half months until my last week of vacation for the year woohoo! I'm surprised it was changed for men down to four. Wonder if it was a backend load thing or something but it was a quietly done change...

    Oooh, I should have thought about that one. Work had a lead contest where they FORCED us non-salespeople to knock on doors to get info, and I outright refused on the principles of mental and physical health, since even the THOUGHT of cold calling places made me physically ill. My manager at the time wound up convincing me to go with him, and I was sort of able to do such, but yeah, I wanted no part in it. Annoyingly enough, two of those wound up becoming customers, but since our sales manager screwed up when the new software came into play I didn't get paid out the several hundred dollar spiff I was entitled to for the lead... And he refuses to accept the mistake, even though we have documentation about all of it. I think I'm actually entitled up to something like a thousand dollars now thanks to them being BIG customers... Sad part is many of the managers were all "but you're a natural at planting seeds and upselling, it can't be that bad!" and I'm just "that's the thing, they're already customers, so it's easy to say 'hey, we got this new thing in, and here's my thoughts' but I absolutely despite anything even remotely resembling commission sales", and that definitely includes walking into a business and trying to force a foot in the door. We have dedicated people who do that, don't make the non-salespeople do such. For some strange reason, the next time a lead contest happened they couldn't understand why I tried to opt out of it (they paired various groups of people together, and if the Group made the quota for amount of leads, everyone got an extra day off, and yeah, I refuse to cold call or do sales. I'm not compromising the trust my customers have in me as their delivery driver just to push a few extea things - they also did this with add o n sales stuff, and tried to get us to look through everything in the customer's kitchens too, ugh) Now if they tell me I'm involved in a lead competition I just laugh, say "when am I being paid for my previous leads that panned out? Because I was forced into very uncomfortable scenarios, and I'm not a salesperson, and until I'm compensated for such I'm not participating in a sales thing when I'm not a salesperson" and they shut up really fast.

    Like others have mentioned, depends on which version of terrible we go with :p I'm a terrible supervisor, for example, because I'm good to work with until things start going sideways, then I'm an uptight jerk... Even more so if you refuse to take your breaks when you're supposed to! It's one of the reasons why once I realized this I quickly got out of such a role, since I go from relaxed and easygoing to "evil teacher wielding the 1 meter wooden ruler" rather easily in such a role. Then again, I also hate actually being in charge of others, since I have a lot of communication issues at times (stuttering, or worse, the inability to get things across to others in a way they actually understand) Was so annoying in high school when they did group exercises, since so many wanted me to just lead because "I'm organized" and I'd just look at them like they said they liked to murder cute things. Still kind of do that now, because those who don't quite know me actually do think I'm organized, when in reality it's following a mental checklist so I get everything I need to get done in the morning (which of course causes frustrations when I get regularly interrupted during such mental checklist....)

    I know the feeling. Last week was pretty bad up here due to the BC wildfires. We finally got a break once it started raining, and then rained almost the entire weekend

    I didn't really know about it until a blog post mocked the army painter dip, but.... I dunno, it's rather tempting to look into dip methods for some of my core army guys for my Skaven horde... Doubly so if it means being able to "chew" through several twenties of units, and just add a bit more. Heroes and siege weapons will of course get more attention, but there's an idea of "good enough" for stuff like Clanrats...

    And don't forget - it is called a London Fog if you add steamed milk to an Earl Grey tea.. Sooo tasty, doubly so with a small amount of sugar. .... I'll drink most green teas straight, but if it's Earl Grey, nope, it's London Fog or not my cup of tea. Funny part though is a lot of the teas I like are moderately bitter, yet I'll drink them straight. My coffee? It's 20% cream by volume.... Lol (no seriously, 16 ounces of coffee and about 4 ounces of cream)

    Silly answer: I'd be one of those headless raptors, tail-less wolves, cheetahs with no teeth, or hoof-less zhevras kind of deal, that make you spend 45 minutes trying to get item 8 out of 8,and I'm in an area where maybe three of us spawn every five minutes, and the drop rate goes down the more players there are in the area... (yes I'm referencing WoW Barrens pre-Cataclysm, even if some of those quests still exist to this day with a few of those bugs...) More serious answer: I'd drop a starter item that gets silently added to your inventory because it looks like any other plain vendor trash... That would start a quest that takes about eighty hours to do, and all it gives you is a vial of black dye.... That starts up a 120 hour long quest, that turns the black dye into a shimmering dye once you cough up another 5k gold. Said shimmering dye then starts a quest that takes 3-400 and at least a month thanks to a massively low drop rate on five different items, four of which are only held by rare world mobs that completionists are always camping because of some achievement that's from four expansions ago, AND of course the fact it uses a currency or reputation that takes forever to farm due to weekly caps/limits. This shimmering dye would then turn into prismatic dye once you cough up another 25k gold, whereupon it would literally turn into a vial of dye you could use to dye your armour... But on the flipside, it would let you turn into a prismatic rainbow energy fox, with a bit of a glitter trail as you move. You can even have a friend jump on your back like the recruit a friend mounts, provided one caveat is done: they've either done this perilously long quest too, or they're an engineer.

    Reading that the wrong way my brain was all "Just how did the slide rule kill the calculator"... ^_^;;;

    Most proud of, hmm... Since nobody has said it for a while, I'll playfully say "redacted" :p Actual response... Uhm, good question, so instead I'll go with "somehow not waking up the neighbour's with my laughter at several scenes in Aggretsuko" because that's the only thing that comes to mind that maybe qualifies even remotely as silly.

    End of Metro 2033 Redux really messes with your mind. So does Aggretsuko, but in a totally different way.
  15. Finally "caved in" and watched a few episodes (first six) of Aggretsuko, the dubbed version on Netflix (since it's the main one that pulls up for me). I say "caved in" because I watched the Anime America "What am I watching?!?!?!?!?" review of it, and, uhm, yeah. Had to watch it. Quotes on "caved in" were used because apparently that character is kind of popular in a lot of circles right now. Definitely worth watching, but don't think you can get away with just one episode, they're 15ish minutes long each and there's this strong addiction to watch at least a few more to see where it goes...

    Naturally I'd love to! It's space!!! Plan for getting there? It's somewhere in the vein of come up with plan, step 2 ??? And then profit I suspect. I mean I'm in outer space. I thought that question read as "what do you plan on doing once you're in there" to which I'd reply "image deep space without the worry of light pollution, obviously". If we're going with the joining a time traveling crew, I vote to be a member of the Andromeda Ascendant, because she's an awesome ship, and the crew ain't bad looking either. I mean skilled. Crew is very skilled.

    I think I used a whole roll of film on that ride when we visited Disneyland.... I actually liked the ride, but I could definitely see how it would be problematic for many...

    With how much I'm enjoying Metro 2033 Redux I'm half tempted to pick up the book(s), but I'm also worried with how much (spoilers) are in the game that the book will outright break my heart... O_o In other news, I want to paint, not deal with over 30C temperatures o_o

    Pretty much anything mangled by Crazy Frog... Yes, I meant to say mangled instead of remixed. :p
  20. Given how the metallics smell, I'm fairly certain one won't have to worry about me trying to taste such! Brought back memories of Citadel's Abbadon Black and Chaos Black, especially Chaos Black third generation pots... Man those had a really strong smell to them. Colour me curious about them as well, since they'd be handy. It is nice to have a paint rack (and I already have plans for an even bigger one that will hold, uhm, a "few" paints (288 dropper bottles and 60 GW/P3 pots, plus even more...)) but an insert for the Alex drawers (of which I already have one dedicated to minis) wouldn't hurt to look into...

    LTPK - MSP HD = ?

    Does this mean we will see the rest of the HD line absorbed into Bones, or is that something that can't be commented on yet?

    Glad to see that at least some of them are surviving, and will be relabelled. I've noticed everyone who has one has a blast. Only time I've seen anyone happier with their car was a guy with a '93 Civic, bone stock, who took body roll as a challenge... And beat most of the guys who were running in Street Prep and Street Mod o_O. Guy sure knew how to drive, it was like a ballet performed by a car that had insane amounts of body roll, and he almost never touched the brakes... I might wind up joining "the enemy" when I get back into autocross, aka Subaru.... Mainly because I like the design of their cars, and how the word "sedan" doesn't mean doom to your fun... Might also be Mitsubishi though, but Subaru I at least have a chance at the BR-Z which if the FR-S is anything to go by (I almost bought one until I triple checked my finances) I want one. Sooo much. So much fun to drive.

    If I'm importing anything it will be an AE92 Corolla / Trueno GT-Z with AE101 "Super" Corolla brakes, and then I'll very quickly be swapping it to a front intercooler, adding 14psi pulleys and doing the bypass mod (mwa ha ha, stealth Corolla with an insane amount of acceleration, and in that configuration, you have the ability to still stop in a reasonable amount of time too). Sure, it's a front wheel drive car but they aren't too too difficult to modify to handle more like a rear wheel drive. .... Or I'll just get the Toyota 86 and a factory warranty. Tough call *laughs nervously* soooooo many of them on the used market, but probably because they really aren't daily drivers unless you really want that distilled "driver's car" kind of vehicle.
