  2. Yay! I wasn't the only one who lumped New York in with New England! I can now take this hat off! But maybe I'll just write Wizzard on it instead.

  3. My coworker and I who have opposite tastes in music agreed today: holiday music playlists in retail are awful. It is also a shame that holiday playlists aren't more focused on instrumentals. Then I wouldn't be cringing nearly as much. I may dress in all green next week, buy green lipstick, in the spirit of being a grinch. I look good in green. Really. Just, without the fuzzy potbelly part of grinchiness. And I'd be nice to people. Green can be nice.

  5. I have just informed my parents I will not be going home for Christmas. 'Starting a new job' was an acceptable reason.

  6. Right after I get done with the paperwork for Second job. Because I can't buy minis, and have to limit my fun stuff until I start working second job. Problem is, Second job is a federal job.... Maybe I need a Lawyer:

  7. Da You-pper is real. I know! I’m a troll. (Cause I’m from under da bridge.) Correction, America’s Touque.

  8. You can do it!!! Not that that these videos will help tell you how to do the gravity turn, because I don’t think they are exactly instructional, but have you checked out the Kerbal space program videos by Robbaz? They are hilarious! My husband used to play, and I know he got to the point of dropping stuff on other planets. But I don’t know how he learned to do that. I know he watched a lot of Robbaz. Then I say: BRING IT! No, it’s just a mistake of those in fly over country. I really do lump New York and New England together. Just like the people on the coasts say “Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, whatever, it’s all fly over country.”, I can lump stuff on the coasts together in inappropriate ways. But Ill try to stop.... except when I intentionally troll.

  9. When I was 20, I had a summer hire job for the Air Force in between college semesters. It was filing and lawn work, mostly. Finger prints and a four page application were required, including a listing of every place I had lived since I was 14. My dad was military and I had gone to two different colleges with three different addresses. All told, it took another page just for addresses. Good thing it paid $4.75/hour, otherwise it just wouldn't have been worth the trouble. Nope, 20-6 == 14. Unless you're in base 9, which would be an unexpected choice.

  12. It's a small country in the mythical north where Santa Claus lives. It is made of two distinct parts, Upper and Lower Canada. Lower Canada has a large percentage of French speaking people. Upper Canada is populated mostly by English speaking people that believe they are more important than the rest of Canada. There is a third and fourth largely unknown regions called the north and the west. While these magically mythical areas contain 80% of the landmass of Canada the residents of Upper and Lower Canada tend to be largely ignorant of their existence. While America is mostly unsure of what Canada is they sometimes notice the stealthy infiltration of lumberjacks and actors into their country and have confusingly named a certain pork product canadian bacon.

  13. I have the opposite problem with my group. I've ended up with a Ring of Regeneration and a Robe of Many Things because no one else wanted them. Maybe because it is Adventure League and he (or she) with the fewest items gets dibs when something new is found. And ninja'd by Crowley.

  14. There's gotta be a word for that little sad moment when you reach for your coffee mug and realize you've already finished it. There's probably one in German or something.

  15. At some point in the last couple weeks our house and cats became infested with fleas. So today we did a de-fleaing treatment and gave our cats baths. The way Falazure carried on you'd think we were murdering him. They're so so silly though. After we set them down from their baths, they ran away from us, because we're horrible and evil. Ten minutes later and they're begging for comfort and love because of the horrible thing that just happened to them Oi, I hear ya there. Energy is super low. But we've been getting things done a little at a time. Small progresses on a daily basis build up. It's helping. You'll get your energy back. Eventually (tm).

  16. Exchanged the WizKids Silver Dragon I bought yesterday for one with all four legs today. The leg is preassembled and glued in. One of the wings is rather tricky to insert, something I noticed with the first one I bought and the clerk at the store mentioned the same issue with his. The wings also make the mini top heavy causing it to fall forward. Sir Forscale is helping to prop him/her up in the photo. The tail is also preassembled and unfortunately pressed pretty firmly against the side of the mini which is going to make it a bit tricky to paint. Still. A nice little dragon mini for the $5 price. I really wish WizKids would credit their sculptors though like Reaper does. Nothing on the packaging or on the website that I could find. Also included the mimics in the pics. Comical minis that should be fun to paint. WizKids also sell the "normal" version of the keg and chest. As you can tell from the pics there are some very noticeable mold lines on all the minis.

  17. I remember taking that test a long time ago!! I got druid back then, surprise! And I got druid just now, surprise.... Close points in ranger too! I remember back then I got chaotic good, which is what I normally play as, but this time around I got true neutral. I guess I've mellowed out a bit. 16 INT and 10 WIS doesn't really help a druid though. And it gave me 10 CHA, I'm feeling that in real life too. Where is my energy, my forum time, my friend time, my personality? No stressing, friends! I'm just still low energy.

  18. I felt that way about most of the questions. I just picked "eh, best answrr, sorta" when a mix of two answers would have been more appropriate, or a "None of the Above." I know your pain well. It doesn't end. Nearing my 19 year mark, still doing paperwork. I was never impressed by In-N-Out. Whataburger or Dans is better. And PTerry's has better fries. Yeah. Checked my account today. Pay mortgage and medical bills, or buy minis. House and health take precedence. Bye bye birthday money. White Castle, home of the slider, because it slides coming out, too. In other news, coding tables in html no longer scares me. First go with a table using multiple colspan and rowspan and various links, and got every bit of code right on the first try. Go me.

  19. As a follow up on my explanation of Canada. Canadian bacon is not made from canadians and bares little resemblance to bacon. Still tastes good and is now available in Canada.

  22. OK, just read that New York isn't part of New England. Any easterners care to explain what states are in New England? I'd always assumed it was anything on the coast from Maryland to Canada. I can be forgiven my ignorance because I know some americans that aren't sure where Canada is. I mean all your maps end at the border!

  24. You think you're done? That's cute. Have some more paperwork. And that meme is quite appropriate; the government does employ people whose entire job is to lose your paperwork. Trust me, I know. I've encountered them. They're scarily efficient. I know I just had 4 days off, but I went to work yesterday, why do I hafta go again today?

  25. Aaaahhhh... Good ol' "Carol of the Electric Guitars," it's my very favorite TSO song! My in-laws took us all to a TSO concert last year for Christmas, and it was a real treat. So many lasers and confetti! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

  26. Perhaps the Frogs and Wolves are actually responsible for the dearth of Glitter. I seem to recall reading something very recently about a stockpiling of a certain "strategic" material. Gem

  27. I was going to point out the same thing. Luckily, Thes jumped on that for me. Because 'Jack knows where I live and I could see him lying in wait to bite me as I left for work in the morning.

  29. You should be able to get them to waive or reverse an overdraft charge that was caused by fraudulent purchases. Heck, even if it isn't their policy they'll usually do it if you raise enough of a stink.

  31. Hello! Long time lurker, recently started painting (since about April of this year) Thought I would "show off" my Masumi I recently finished. Probably the mini I am most proud of thus far! Feedback welcome! :D

  34. Essentially. And just remember, Maine used to be the northern part of Massachusetts. And Rhode Island is where Massachusetts sent the undesirables it did not feel worth executing as witches, so RI has a very long history of tolerance. And New Englanders do not like New York. Delaware was where Portugese immigrants made their fish soup with tomatoes which so offended the milk-soup-loving New Englanders that they dubbed it Manhattan chowder, as the most vicious insult they could think of. And Connecticut used to have no western border. It ran straight inland for a thousand miles or more, reaching the Great Lakes on old maps. And I don’t know why anyone would confuse New York as an English place (which most Americans do not know about) with New England, given that the only New England state with any remotely English name is New Hampshire. (Can you tell I was born there? )

  38. WOOF SECRET SERVICE REPORT. *** Implementation of Mimic Agents is succesful!!! *** *** Damage done to enemy leader is minor! Effectiveness of Mimics require further study*** *** Recommendation, use larger Mimics, Pick Up Trucks???, Refrigerators? *** Clearly we are meant to go on an adventure together someday! On other news, Althought these critters look adorable and are also a bit useful ( they eat insects), they stink.. Literally, we have these creatures roaming around between the walls, I have caught several of them already. But now they seem to have taken residence in a space between the ceiling, the smell in one room is bad. So, this weekend I will need to inspect the whole attic and search for small holes. Need to seal those spots and keep them out. I do hope it is just these little guys and nothing bigger.. But since we already caught a few, I think they are the culprits. Their fur is lined with a muskus oil..Yuk..

  39. Maybe I'm dumb, but I thought a 12 hour shift was from x time AM till x time PM. Though it could be reversed to x time PM till x time AM. Throw a 1 hour lunch break in there and it could be from x time AM till x+1 time PM. You know... cause we have a 24 hour day... and half of 24 hours is... um... 12.... So, it would be the same time getting off work as it is starting work... Just half the day away.... But then again... I'm bad at math... so what do I know. I know I don't live in New York, so Jack will have to expend some effort to bite me.

  40. OK, here's the damage from CMON. It would have been much worse if I didn't have to actually have to work at work and did my shopping before so many things were out of stock.

  41. Maybe I'm not used to this new math.... but how is 8AM to 6PM a 12 hour shift. Seems like a 10 hour shift to me.... but then again, I don't add so good.

  42. It's gone rogue? No, according to the Critical Fumble chart rolling a 1 would mean that the table crashed through the ceiling out of nowhere and fell on your head. Dropping the table was just a regular fumble. I think that's the most hilarious part. Enlightenment is often mistaken for insanity...

  43. Lest you worry - I took all the reasonable first-aid precautions such as ice, anti-inflammatory, and checked that my pupils really are equally dilated and I have no blind spots. This is not my first rodeo.
