  1. I know - you did say that earlier. But at this point, i'm willing to see just how good your telephoto lens is . I mostly commented because I can't believe how excited I am to see what others chose.
  2. Getting to Know You, Mar 2018

    @Dilvish the Deliverer - sounds like another topic for a question of the day.
  3. Getting to Know You, Mar 2018

    LOL. I think i would have contacted the lawyer just to waste his time. "No, I don't have the name or address of the pedestrian that jumped out in front of us. Can you track him down?" yes. I currently drive a Toyota Corolla and RAV4. I got my license shortly after I turned 16. Most of my "funny" stories about driving are near accidents, but at least they highlight the fact that my dad (who used to race cars professionally) taught me well. The funniest would be when I was seventeen, driving down an ice covered hill with one my coworkers on our way to work in my parents 80 Honda Civic. She looks over at me and says "what would happen if I pulled up the emergency brake right now?" and then proceeded to do so. We did a 720 before I regained control of the car and drove on like nothing had happened. It scared the piss out of both of us, but while she was visibly shaken, I was damned if I was going to show her I was shaken up too. I pulled into the parking lot where we worked, and proceeded to calmly point out to her all of the ways it could have gone worse, such as slamming into the snow bank on one side, or sliding off the edge into a 15 foot drop on the other. To this day I don't know a) how I managed to regain control of the car and b) how I didn't completely go off on her.
  4. could you aim those @Kangaroorex too? When I jumped in on this, i was thinking "Who cares about pictures?" Now that the box has passed me, I realize that pictures are what sustain you until the next round of BogW.

    Say the right keywords, and I'm sure some NSA analysts will join you...
  6. New Avatar, Again, Sorry

    Just don't stare at TS's new avatar for too long, or you'll turn to stone.

    August doesn't play Magic, but that's likely due more to a lack of proper exposure to it. He and I have played a couple times, but a)I'm no longer into it and b) it means playing with his dad, "who always wins at games". (I don't, but that's his perception). I'll make sure I pack a couple of Magic Decks - I'll bet that Gus can get him to play if he's willing to teach him how to.
  8. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    If I had a bathroom in my office, I'd consider that, since my office has its own entry door. But using our restrooms means someone traipsing through our house, and that means muddy feet a lot of times. And it's not like our town is so big or hard to to find a public restroom in. I'm sure it's just a matter of convenience for these guys, and no one has noticed or complained until now. The previous owners of this house both had jobs were rarely here during the weekdays, and even if they were home, they only used the room I put my office in as storage, so they probably didn't even know the drivers were doing it. It's very likely that the drivers don't even know I'm sitting here. We've been here just under a year now, and I only figured out hat they were doing a few months ago.

    I've considered it, as well as complaining to the city. But I think I'll reserve those as escalation - I think I'm going to start out simply by hanging a sign on the fence post there next Monday morning that says "Dear WM driver: Please find a toilet to use. I'm getting tired of watching you pee. Thank you."

    oh wow... My son just turned 15 this week. But what gets me here is the coincidence of our son's names. My son is August. He's named after his grandfather, who is also named August, but goes by Gus.

    My son is coming as well - sounds like our boys are within a couple of years of each other (this is his first year of high school.) He'll be glad to know there will be someone his age there.
  12. Fun with order notes...

    I might have to frame this:

    True! in this case, I was really just trying to use the picture to prevent having to explain the layout of my office and where the garbage truck stops, so it didn't bother me it came out like this. Not like I was talking about the egg farm off in the distance (which you can't make out because of the screen)

    I love it! Never before have I wanted a basilisk mini. Now I do.
  15. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    So this is the view from of one of my home office windows: Why am i showing you the view from my office window? Because I'm annoyed, and not sure if I should let it go, or do something. See, every Monday is trash and recycle pick up on our side of town. And every Monday, one or both of the garbage trucks backs up on the dirt road there, stops right in front of that tree, and the driver steps out and takes a piss (the truck is between us). I probably wouldn't care at all if it wasn't for the backup alarm acting as a "I'm about to piss" notification.
