Randomness XVII: The Madness of the Quorum

Recommended Posts

I'm told there are probably just two weeks of Avernus left. Don't know if I'm gonna live through it.

 

I'd like to do something besides stare at the Internet and scroll and click, but that's about all I've managed to do this week. Can't even read, much less write. I'm about at peak uselessness.

 

Dang lol, y'all sad-reacting reacting that, so I must be giving the wrong impression. Everything's pretty all right; I'm just ridiculously unable to get myself motivated.

Very limited time indeed; they already seem to be gone.

Watched the Ghostbusters: Afterlife trailer again, this time with Grump.

 

He paused it, and told me to look at the main character's hair and glasses.

 

OMG! How did I not notice that! Someone had a grandkid!

 

Well done, that!

Aaaaaand it's been pushed back to March. ::(:

 

I just realized why the name of the mine is important.

 

This is a real sequel, two generations later. Ivo Shandor had a backup plan. :blink:

 

Pulling out Ghostbusters and Extreme Ghostbusters, but not Real Ghostbusters or Ghostbusters 2.

 

I am educating BD on her cinematic history!

 

I may pull out Answer the Call, but only for Chris Hemsworth.

There's something so satisfying about finishing off a miniature... Doubly so when it's the first of the year for you. 

 

Of course, editing the photos I kind of threw away what I told hubby I was planning on doing... Oops. :ph34r:

 

(I said I was going to go to bed early, and here I am staying up until midnight again...)

I think I am taking her off my friends list on Facebook. This just isn't right.

 

I've cut the ties with a longtime friend of mine a few years ago.

If it doesn't feel right then it is time to evaluate the situation.

 

I asked myself,

  • Does this feel right?
  • Can we talk about it and maybe change things?
  • What are we both getting out of this friendship?
  • Is it all still worth it?

You'll figure it out when you got your answers to those, then act.

Life is too short to be dealing with toxic situations.

I would suggest the hire of a tow vehicle, a flat bed for preference, to get it there and back again.  That way you aren't exposing yourself to any unavoidable liability issues.  While it's in transport the Tow Company bears the liability burden.  And if they break it, they get to fix it.

Oh it has to be a flat bed, but finding one that can handle a car as low as mine around here is tricky.  I'm actually hoping to find one of the local race guys with their race trailer empty if I can. It will be lower and cheaper....

The shop I take my cars to will come get it and do the inspection.   Also, for a small fee you can drive it  with no inspection sticker, but you have to stop and talk to the police along the way. :)    Next time I will do a temporary plate swap from one of the other cars. 

 

Hmmm, I hadn't considered that they could come get it.  No idea if they do that around here or not.....

I'll be skipping the other scenarios  ^_^

That sold out quickly...

Not that I need any more crap...

 

Actually, probably good that it sold out as quickly as it did.

I talked to Trang for the first time since she and Jake split up.

 

She was complaining because he took her off his auto insurance, even though she's the one keeping the car. She has a DUI on her record.

 

As she went on I realized I was hearing about an emottionally abusive relationship.

 

From the abuser's side. ::(:

 

I LIKED  Trang, but even from her own lips, I think Jake just dodged a bullet.

 

She was angry that he said she is drinking too much.

 

She is drinking herself to sleep every night, and waking up to a hangover every morning, and her new boyfriend is enabling her.

 

She moved him in while Jake, her ex-fiance, was still living there.

 

I think I am taking her off my friends list on Facebook. This just isn't right.

Ufff... that stinks. All around. Glad Jake got away.

Tragedy has struck!

My 4 cup Mr. Coffee that I use to make hot water for tea at my desk has given up the ghost, as it has stopped heating water.

I think I paid a little over $4 for it almost a decade ago.  It was on sale, one of those loss leader deals to get you in the store to spend even more money.  I was actually in the store for other things and spotted this and just tossed it in the cart with the other goodies.

I guess I need to order a new one.

DOOM.... But hey, now you have the base structure for a cool bit of terrain!

 

COFFEE!!

I have a massage therapy session in a couple of hours.  I can not wait.  It has been over 13 weeks since my last one.  I usually go ever 3 weeks, or more often if my neck or back are really acting up.

I expect this will be brutal, and I'll be pretty much wiped for the rest of the day, but hopefully by Sunday I'll be moving much better.

C'mon, gotta stretch those ligaments.

Not far off from what I get done when my back and hips get out of alignment:

Chiropractic Care Series: Traction

 

That's a stock image, but boy does that help.  Nothing like being hooked up to what is more or less a smart engine hoist and having it realign everything.

We've used it preemptively over the years (since my last impingement) any time things feel too out of alignment.  As my last impingement resulted in my walking with a cane for half a year, I've gotten pretty good at judging.

 

Reminds me I need to find a new physio, hard to keep seeing the one a 4 hour drive away....

My cats would prefer that I never left bed. I give nice pets and it's someone else's job to feed them.

Ours have learned that Grump is the one to wake up.

 

Such GOOD kitties! :lol:

So, Dragon Milk Stout?

Good Morning Reaper friends!!! It's beginning to look up today, oh right:

And we can't forget the joke.

 

I opened a tub of soft margarine and it looked just like the face of Jesus!

 

Spoiler

I showed my Indian friend and he said "I can't believe it's not Budda".
