  1. Can't even tell you how angry I am with my employer right now. It is long past time to get out of there. I don't want to go into details which potentially have multiple interpretations, but the situation makes my finances for the rest of the year difficult. They are not giving me any options and this is already hard enough without financial trouble too. I feel like I have done everything I was supposed to, been careful and am still getting screwed.
  2. This! I usually don't react to flu shots, but this one made for a pretty miserable day after. Just felt off and sore all over. Temp was higher than normal, but not fever high. It helped make this a very long week.
  3. This is quite intriguing. No chance of me doing one every day, but some number, sure.
  4. Singer Helen Reddy has passed. https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/30/entertainment/helen-reddy-obit-trnd/index.html She stared in and did Candle on the Water in the original Pete's Dragon. It was a huge part of my childhood and I have loved that song for as long as I can remember.
  5. I have at least one person at work ask every week why we do a particular thing a certain way. My response every time is because we tried your suggestion and it didn't work, here is why.
  6. I own a solid handful of pirate minis. At least one painted. I entered him in the competition at my first ReaperCon. I have the bones ghost ship, and a couple of dinghys. Want the bones 5 ship but not sure it will happen. I have a couple of pirate outfits. A Captain Marvelous non-morphed outfit from Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, and enough pieces to out together a couple of european pirate and steampunk pirate costumes. Nope, pirate is not one I can do. I managed a very bad russian accent for a 7th sea game, but other than that, I just cannot pull off accents. Not on purpose, anyway.
  7. Quite right. I have a terrible habit of mixing up the last names. I know I do it, try to check and still get it wrong. Thank you for pointing it out and correcting me.
  8. NoNoNoNoNoNoNoNo. Fast forward and get it over with. I don't want to see what 2020 would throw at us if given another chance. Terry Brooks was, sadly, one of the authors I never got to meet. I love the Sword of Truth books, which were never made into a tv series. Nope, didn't happen.
  9. I dislike the vast majority of BBQ sauce. Too sweet. Good BBQ meat should have enough seasoning and be cooked well enough that none of this sauce nonsense is necessary. Sauce just tries to make up for subpar cooking. Now if you use it as a rub while cooking, that's different, but it should never be used alone. You need some salt and spices in there too. Maybe a little liquid smoke or vinegar or worstershire.
  10. I don't usually like ground beef, but every now and then, I decide I need a burger. Usually when my iron levels dip. Then, grilled with cheddar and swiss cheese, pickle, lettuce and tomato. Either ketchup and mustard or mayo depending on mood. Or the rare occasion my roommate makes burgers. Not sure what all she does to them, but they sure are tasty. I know she makes homemade buns, sauteed mushrooms and onions and refrigerator pickles and has tomato and avocado to go on them. Then does oven fries on the side. Lisi and I like this too. James is the carnivore, but we tend to get away with meat light meals more often in the summer. We are making an honest effort to eat more veggies. We love squash of all sorts, sweet potatoes, fresh green beans and mushrooms. All of which go great with burgers
  11. I would love to see some scenic dead or sleeping bodies, various races. Slumped over some rocks, propped against a fallen tree, laying half out of water/mud/quicksand, sprawled out on cobblestones, laying on a cot or bed, or slumped in a gutter. A body in a plain wooden box that is not all skellified yet.
  12. Several at this point: Darius Rucker's Wagon Wheel Wind Rose - Diggy Diggy Hole The Hu's Wolf Totem with Jacoby Shaddix The Skyrim Theme by Lindsey Stirling and Peter Hollins Toss a Coin to Your Witcher by Dan Vasc, pretty much anything by Dan Vasc, really, but to pick a favorite...
  13. My friend finally got his kidney transplant. He is recovering well and should get to go home in a couple of days.
  14. You are not a jerk. People who can't take no for an answer are jerks. I do the ordering for the kitchen I work in and it has been an adventure this year. I still have jerks that come up to me saying "We're out of this. I need it." And then do not take 'sorry, nothing I can do.' for an answer. And, no, I cannot drop what I am doing and run to the store for you. One, I'm busy. Two, corporate really frowns on circumventing their systems (even when they don't work), if there is even money available on the card (end of the month, there isn't). I can't just pull stuff out of my back pocket. I have made sure we have something to serve for every meal so far. I'm pretty proud of that, actually. At least my boss appreciates it.
  15. They do that for ServSafe tests too. Those are considerably easier to pass, though. Only 1 day of studying and I get upset if I don't get 100%. I think like 80 is passing.
  16. I do like that one. Neither my roommate or I like inflatables very much. Usually too fake and cartooney. Better suited for Christmas. We are using mostly diy stuff, like building a mausoleum out of 2x4, insulation foam and paint. Or the 4 dozen dying roses that I rescued and are now drying that I will airbrush black. Or the pig rib bones that I saved from rib night that are going to be dried and turned into wind chimes.
  17. My roommate has gone from 'I don't really want to do anything for Halloween this year.' to inviting the entire city to at least drive by and see the decor.
  18. My roommate posted our plans for social distanced trick-or-treating on the city's social media and had it pinned by the city. Now we have a bunch of people wanting to come see our house, so more reasons to go all out with decor and stuff
  19. I hate it when that happens. I do that to potatoes about once a week.
  20. Not technically mine. She is my roommate's. 10 months old
  21. It helps with ours. She generally likes hers better because it makes noise and lights up. She has not figured out that Daddy's controls the tv.
  22. I have the final session of Nights Black Agents tonight. Technically there will be an epilogue, but that will be a one shot in a different system and we may skip a week or two before doing it.
