Malcador I am so sorry to hear about your friend.

I'm sure that dog enjoyed every moment he had with you, and in the end that what really count in this world: The time spent with those you love.

And yes, sorry to hear that Malcador.

Let the good memories linger.

 

 

On things that mildly amused me, I received a letter from the student loans company. Apparently one of the bean counters has noticed I've been able to defer payments for 15 years and that in something like 5 or 10 years they'll be cancelled. So they sent me a letter of "If you can pay us half the amount now, we'll forgive the other half. Of course, this will effect matters if you try getting another student loan from us in the future."

Condolences from me too Malc.

 

On Monday my boss handed me a todo before disappearing for the week. With our supporter also gone all I managed to do was taking a look at it. So, gotta rush it tomorrow, yay. At least our support guy will be back and I don't have to spend the entire day hearing whiny complaints on the phone about how whatever they were trying to do always worked and it suddenly stopped working even though nobody touched that module in the past two years.

One of our drivers went MIA. Didn't show up at work, can't get him on the phone. It's about 5 hours now and I had to cancel two tours because of this.

Turns out our driver escaped home. He ran away to saxonia, leaving behind his wife and 6 months old baby or something. Welp, at least the delivery van was ok and he didn't stole it.

40 is a bit early for shingles, sorry to hear you've had a manifestation of it.

The CDC recommends the vaccine for people 60+ but my local grocery store pharmacist has a sign recommending it at 50+.

 

I haven't had a single inoculation since I got out of the Navy. :lol:

My mom got shingles in her early 70's, on her back. I wonder if how old you are when you got the chicken pox makes any difference. I had chicken pox when I was around 18. Haven't done any vaccine yet. But I occasionally wonder if that pox virus is a cause of some of the weird ailments I've had over the years.

 

...anyway, shingles is definitely no fun.

Geez, I remember pox parties.  :unsure: :lol: Im pretty sure I was around 8-9 when I got it. With my two cousins. Im rapidly approaching the recommended age so I will probably roll down to the local Jewel and get the shot some day. I hear shingles is pretty bad.

Mine isn't too bad, I imagine it is worse when you are older. Just uncomfortable. I can still exercise and everything, but I am a bit tired so trying not to push it. The doctor gave me a prescription that is supposed to help.

New pet peeve. People who talk in an affected British accent on their answering machines and are so obviously not.

 

Stop rolling your r's you phoney.

Why won't the past just stay there? Why do old ghosts come back and reopen old wounds? Decisions, even painful ones, once made should be left to lie. It does no kindness to the people you say you love to confront them over and over with them even if you didn't like the decision. Better to just let it go.

 

I need a drink. Likely many drinks.

C'mon, roll the r when you say burrito and tell me that's not fun. Don't lie.

3rd session of the pathfinder game I'm running was tonight.

Now, 1st session was all character creation, with pretty much all the players having no experience in Pathfinder before, and several of them never having done any rpgs.

 

And well.

They still haven't moved through the first adventure encounter situation. And the first actual combat of the campaign was three of the players killing the player of the Lawful Good Paladin with Int 7 and a zeal for Righteousness!™ who would yell "Criminal!" anytime he saw someone breaking what he thought was the law.

 

I mean, they're all having a lot of fun apparently, but I fear for my adventure.

 

Edit: It's also the first time I've been in a game where the girls have outnumbered the guys.

Anyone else get that giant RH retail catalog in the mail this week? The first page in the catalog is a long "letter" re: how the death of brick and mortar retail is over-rated. Glancing through their catalog, perhaps that is true .... especially for the fairly to major rich. $3000 coffee table. Yeah, lemme grab my CC, I'll buy that posthaste. Although a lot of their interior deco offerings are beautifully designed, such is not my thing. *dumps catalog in the recycle bin*

---------

Different topic - I wonder if I've partaken of so much subtitled dramas/movies and games that it has altered my ability to understand English speaking voices. eg I'm too used to not paying much attention to vocal meaning, only vocal tones. I swear lately I can't understand half of what the actors are saying (it's like they all have quiet mumble-mouth syndrome) and I end up putting CC/subtitles on even for English shows. :disguise:
