lol @ the fact that I knew it was Stouffer's upon only seeing the image, before I dragged the lower scroll bar to the right to see the rest of the box.

Not had much of their stuff for a while though. Do they still make the Paninis? Don't think I've spotted them in the stores for a while. (Granted I haven't looked closely.) Used to love a couple of those. And I miss when they had that points program.



Happy maker... Well, even if, as I figured, nothing was meant to be, I'd at least wished I'd known what that nice security guy's name was, and through conversations between coworkers a few days ago about various people who have worked there I at least was able to catch on that he was a Mike. And via other conversations today caught on that, as I pretty much figured, he's likely taken (or so I have to assume) and has a young daughter.

Ah well, next life. I did/do think that was a little bit of a Leo type right there in some way, and one woman's comments about him today kind of supported that. A rarer breed me thinks... I'm just impressed some inner radar caught on like it did. I could very well have possibly have gotten into that one had I gotten there first, but whoever has him is a lucky lady.

Awh sorry Indigo, though having a child doesn't always mean you are partnered it's safe to assume this in a lot of cases (esp with young children) You never know who will come along on a new path.

It might just be for a day or two, but we've rescued another stray cat.

We're not going to foster him - probably going to hook him up with one of the ladies we've fostered for.



But I freaking love this cat. He's so friendly and chill. And has big ol paws. He's super skinny right now, but if he's paws are any indicator, he's meant to be a big'un.

story o me life. either the people i would like to get to know better are too young, closer to 25 than 35, or are already hitched. or out of state and un available.

at this rate, It's easier to become a monk. stay silent all day and drink as my barber used to say.

Barbra bush was a lucky one. true love at 16 and 75 years of marriage. that's what I was hoping for....but it didn't work out.

Newborn kittens, new TV, and pizza.

Probably the best day I've had in months.

Sorry guys, the pizza is now poo. It was one o' them little rectangular ones from Little Caesars, pepperoni.

I mean I can still take a pic of it, though. I've never shied away from sh*tposting.

lol

If I didn't need to go to bed now I would offer to get a pic of what's left of mine as a substitute.

Just normal pepperoni though, so I'm sure you all know what that looks like.

Aw, cute little fuzzy.



Back around the beginning of March I'd made a FB group for the store I worked for, since the poor old place would be ending its existence after 55 years.

I'd sat on the idea for a month or more, not sure if it was a dumb idea or not. I'd finally did it and posted up a couple of notes for it at work, with my manager's permission.

I really wasn't sure if people would even be interested. One of the more outgoing, social employees loved the idea and added some others herself which helped, but up until yesterday it was only 16 members. I was kind of disappointed, but figured it is what it is, no one is forced to join if they aren't interested.

Then yesterday, after it being the absolute final day for us last holdouts who had stayed the past extra 10 days to help clean up, it had reached 37 by the time I went to bed. Then I check this morning and it jumped to 58, via some joining then adding a whole bunch of people themselves. Some I knew previously, though there's also plenty I never knew who had come and gone before I ever worked there, but that is fine, it's for anyone who ever did. I'm just pleased to see it take off and the photos that some are sharing.

Today, in Dungeons and Dragons...




We're doing a one-shot game where we're all half-elf rogues (though my character is "half half-elf" and half dwarf), since it would be my last game for four months before I go to Ohio for the summer.

An important NPC gnome child kicked one of my guildmates in the crotch.


DM rolled a 20.


And 9 damage.


The context is even weirder.

(Also, a cockatrice we were fighting completely missed attacking us and hit the ground so hard it got a concussion. So one of my guildmates

That sounds hilarious! We just wrapped up our weekly game session, and had a LOT of fun with the monk and his new barnarian "gf" going "bowling with bugbears". (Basically a type of goblinkin who are big, hairy, and mean.) They were tossing them around on a bunch of rickety platforms and plank bridges in a cavern full of spiders, araneas, and ettercaps (and the bugbears, obviously) trying to knock them off the platforms/bridges into this 100 ft shaft. Meanwhile, Mr D's elf ninja was tangling with one of the araneas, which are a shapeshifting spider that can use magic in humanoid form, while the kitsune magus was "tied up" in its webs. My fire-obsessed gnome had to burn it off of him. Needless to say, it was a fun romp, though they only got halfway through the cavern complex before we had to stop for the day. Should be equally entertaining next week when we finish the adventure before moving on to my next "torture ", as they call it.....

The game ultimately ended up getting really sour, first with me having trouble keeping up with one of the players - who was so intense with the game that I kept falling behind.


And then things took a bad turn - when she killed a character we weren't supposed to kill (the gnome kid, who was wanted for killing a dragon but somehow didn't - for 40,000 Platinum) and then things kept getting worse and worse to the point that I so uncomfortable with the direction it was going that we determined it would be best to stop playing. There were worse details that I left out, but it was getting pretty terrible.

But then that turned around with completing a sewing project with my boyfriend's mom and meeting a girl from their neighborhood that's roughly your Duckling's age (I think a little older).


I'd love to be able to play a game with you sometime, though. That would be a lot of fun
(But that would mean having to choose between Chovlona and Melarue to play with; Melarue is the "Quarter Elf" that I wasn't able to use to the extent I wanted to yesterday, but I already have a pretty good grasp on Chovlona.)



The big thing for the day is that I'm typing this from my new computer, which should make working with my cousin in Ohio a lot easier if I have to walk around and work at the same time. Also, Pete the Cat pretty much just needs cold treatment in terms of his health.
