What you did today


Recommended Posts

I've been going through a bad time personally lately. I'm sitting here looking at maps of the US wishing I could just jump in the truck with the dogs and go. Not a good time though. But I think I am going to buy a camper for the back of my pick up truck.

You're a cheery wee bugger, Nep. Have I ever said that?

Thank you Gents but I'm cool really. That's the way it goes, things happen and you do what must be done to deal with them and move on. After all the sun will always rise tomorrow.

So, you're on a date with a beautiful, intelligent woman, some of your friends pass by and have the good sense to stay away.

 

Next morning, have the message "So, who was the redhead with the huge ****?"

Today I got my Halloween mask and the plastic meat hooks & chain. Now I only need my apron and the fake blood and my costume is complete. 

 

Of course I had to try it on immediately, it fits me oddly well.

I gazed at the dead, and for one dark moment I saw a banquet.

My kid broke the TV because he didn't like the song his sister was dancing to in Just Dance. Since I won't have money to replace it until my 3 check month in December, he just gave up all his christmas presents to buy a new TV.

The area between the balls and the butt is a hotbed of terrorist activity.

Maybe it's just because it's a relatively low quality image, but that actually looks pretty terrifying, :p.

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

Tempted to ask higher ups if they are actually serious about hiring people are just jerking it for no reason, apparently this is a bad idea according to family. Right now, avoiding all local media as well, Blue Jays winning mean loud scumbags everywhere.

 

Also have to put an edge on the garden, tomorrow even though it'll be pretty damn cold and I lack warm gloves that offer fine handling and have really bad circulation in the fingers.

we drowned.  not today, but when we were young.  were a frozen lake and we fell through while playing hockey.  just one o' those things.  lake had been frozen solid for more than a month, but the patch we fell through were rotten.  we got pulled out and resuscitated, but not before we stopped breathing.  we drowned. may have already described the experience before on these boards... am not certain.  ain't important at the moment.  the reason we bring up is that we were terrified and absolutely nothing we did while trapped under the ice did any good.  felt utterly helpless. were ten years old when we drowned and since that time we has had dozens o' moments in life that were just as terrible and frightening, but not nearly so dramatic.  

 

family crisis. business crisis. personal crisis.  unlike most movies and tv shows, real life problems ain't always fixable.  fall through the ice and get trapped and just kinda feel self drown. in real life, the folks who might be there to save us, who is s'posed to save us, is often just part o' the ice.  only genuine escape woulda' been to make different choices five, ten or even twenty years in the past and that ain't possible, is it?

 

so, you drown.  probable takes three minutes or less to drown in water.  drown in marriage or problem with kids or job can last a whole lot longer than three minutes. spend days and weeks and months feel like drowning.

 

got no idea what you are going through and it ain't none o' our business.  even if you told us, we wouldn't pretend to to know how you feel.  we ain't got no great insights, that is for damn sure. that being said, let us know if you need a hand.

Thank you Grom! In my situation I have two choices, both unpleasant. But I'm not one for waffling and waiting wouldn't have made either more appealing so I made the choice and I'm dealing with what comes next.  I don't have to like it, just have to do it. But I'm not above griping about it! :lol:

Sooo.... Applied and got an inter-office transfer that raises my hourly to 12 (from 11.25 woo...) but has better overall potential because It's "manager in training" rather than "Customer service".

 

The other thing I'm considering is I noticed a "temp" position with Bioware austin in their story department. Considering putting something together to give them set either in Dragon Age or Mass Effect.

Best pal since grade-school took me out for pre-b-day lunch at Craft Burger in Carlsbad Village. Surprised me with a Nixon timepiece themed as an Imperial TIE pilot ... all-black, with a tiered red-digital fighter-dash display, engraved underneath with the image of a helmet and the words "Crash and Burn." I'm digging it, the bezel looks like the gear logo of the Empire.

First fitting for my new winter suit today, and a very pleasant surprise, my tailor has installed a bar and a rather photogenic young barmaid. Returned to the office with a little buzz to speed the afternoon on its way. Quite pleasant indeed.

Quite an experience to live in misery isn't it? That's what it is to be married with children.

I've seen things you people can't even imagine. Pearly Kings glittering on the Elephant and Castle, Morris Men dancing 'til the last light of midsummer. I watched Druid fires burning in the ruins of Stonehenge, and Yorkshiremen gurning for prizes. All these things will be lost in time, like alopecia on a skinhead. Time for tiffin.

 

Tea for the teapot!

Now that's got Men's Wearhouse beat coming & going.

Heh, you're right. My new nerd watch made me forget etiquette. 

 

I had the lunch special, standard fare, but the taste was superb. Matched by a Ballast Point Grunion Pale Ale draft ... only one, since, you know, it was noon.

Nice, a relatively small selection but  some yummy choices

 

I like the idea of the "chef's seasonal burger creation" ...that looks very interesting  :yes:

I've been trying to figure out a reasonably priced little getaway for the wife and me over the holidays, when I stumbled upon a 3-star michelin rated restaurant in our area.  Most of them tend to be in the city, so that was a nice surprise.  Then I looked at the menu, it is $210 each, and it would be another $180 each if we want the wine pairing.  Holy moly!
