      Just how many alerts can one person have at one time? Let's find out, shall we?

      Most of you won't be involved in this little experiment of mine, but the one who is should be throughly ticked off. smiley0.gif

      Important note, if you intend to go on vacation, don't announce it. Some of us have a wicked sense of humor.

    • Final update.

      13 years ago


      On this, the last day of March I have decided to post the final update for the Baby Pool.

      Today marks the first entry, IrishWalnut, and thus the countdown has begun. Good luck to everyone, and even more luck to Moonracer and myself. The big day is just around the corner (or it's here, if Walnut's correct). Let's see how thing turn out.


      On a side note, I have just begun playing Kingdom Hearts 2. I am 3 and a half hours into it and haven't even gotten past the prologue yet. I have a feeling this game is going to be demanding much of my down time. (Down time being when I'm not at work, sleeping or attending to fatherly duties) Don't get me wrong, I'll still find time to check in on RvB, just maybe not as often.

      The Faithfulness - Strong, muscular, adaptable, takes what life has to give, happy content, optimistic, needs enough money and acknowledgment, hates loneliness, passionate lover which cannot be satisfied, faithful, quick-tempered, unruly, pedantic and careless.

      This is me. It describes me almost perfectly. Except maybe the careless part. Just ask my wife.

    • Another, possibly last, update.

      13 years ago


      Since I last post an update on the baby pool I have recieved 3 more entries. It truly is coming down to the wire on this. I'm thinking there may be time for one more update if anyone else wants to take a chance, but there are no gaurantes on that. smiley0.gif

      If the doctors, and most of you, are correct, next week should be the big week. Keep tuned for updates and, fingers crossed, photos of the newest arrivial to the Dainbramaged/Moonracer family. Screen name to be determined. Suggestions anyone?


    • An update might just be in order.

      13 years ago


      Well ladies and gentlemen, it's coming down to the wire for the baby pool. The predicted delivery date is just a couple weeks away, so I thought now would be a good time to repost the calender and try for any last minute entries.

      The rules again are simple, select a date, if the child is born on said date you get +50 mods. Why? No real reason, just something I felt like doing. Once again the predicted delivery date is April 8th and there are still some good dates available.


    • So much to say, but now is not the time.

      13 years ago


      Okay, so maybe that's a little confusing. I just wanted to say hello.

      Okay, what I really want to say I can't say just yet. It's still to early and there's alot of uncertainty surrounding everything. All I can say for sure is that there is alot of turmoil/insanity going on at work these days and who knows whats going to happen when it all comes to a grand and glorious (or disasterous) conclusion. Good or bad I'll be sure to keep everyone informed. Not that I really to expect everyone to care, but I'm sure someone does.

      I should have alot more information in the coming week, when things slow down and the smoke has a chance to clear a bit.

      So if I don't respond to posts, or my responses seem to be whiney or incoherent, you'll know why. Expect lots of typos, as I just corrected several.


    • To return a favor...

      13 years ago


      My boss, TCG_Chris, was recently nice enough to share with me, and all those who wish to hear it, a wonderful country ditty.

      I have figured, to be fair, I would have to return the favor. This one's for you Chris.

      This journal has been rated PG-13 for harsh language.

      Until all are one. Later.

    • This ever happen to you?

      13 years ago


      Have you ever walked into a situation and the only thing you can think is "You've gotta be fucking kidding me"? This was my reaction upon walking into work last night.

      I'll give you a little back ground before relating what made me think such horrible thoughts. I work overnights at a grocery store. It's not much, but it's a job. Anyways, I stock and face shelves for a living. On an average load night (like last night) the will be between 4-6 of us stocking between 900 - 1500 pieces then facing most of the store. (There are a few departments we don't, and won't, face) This is not that difficult a task, even with the collection of half wits we have there. Tonight started out normel enough. Four people, The manager Chris, Laura the usefull one and Bill... the less than usefull one. Nothing major, until I step out onto the loading dock. Normally there'll be 10-12 pallettes of product waiting to be broken down and worked, on this night there were 28! That's right, well over twice the normal load and only four people to stock it all. At this point I figured Chris (that's TCG_Chris) had finally flipped his lid. I had picked on him once too often about not being able to reach the mythical 2000 (Since the store has opened we have not had a load topping 2000, 1900 was the closest, I think) and was out to prove me wrong.

      Fortunately (or unfortunately) this was not the case. What had happened, I was told, is that the was a problem with the computer and the order had been sent twice. So what I was looking at was the normal order x2, plus some distribution for next weeks sales. Needless to say we did not finish the load, did not face the store and will be going back to finish it tonight. Plus we now have more overstock than we have room for. For some reason the store decided they didn't need a storage room, just a storage hallway. I am now exhausted, but I am still smiling, in denial of the whole damn mess. I really need to get out and find a real job.

      Well, it's nappy time. Until next time, thanks for listening (or reading, rather) while I whine.

      Who says nothing good ever comes out of art school? This is a great little film, I think you should check it out. Unless you're REALLY into the Holidays, then maybe you shouldn't.
