  1. Prompt 367 - Emotion Challenge

    As a 22 year cancer survivor I can say you pretty much nailed the first reaction. I remember sitting there with one part of my mind hearing the grim statistics but most of it consumed with just two words..."Oh fuck!"
  2. Chapter 10

    .....AAARRRRGGGHHH!!!!!! I *hate* when you drop a bomb and then we have to wait for a week for more information!
  3. The Cat Crusades

    I can totally empathize with Sam's desire to withdraw from reality. I did the same thing, but it was all internal in that I got lost in books, so the only additional thing I got tormented about was being a "nerd" for liking books.
  4. Pause, then onto "Discovery"

    Holy shit!!!
  5. Sobriety -Day 8

    There needs to be a confused emoji.
  6. Chapter 1

    There are actually scientists that believe there are, and always have been, six sexual roles. Male and female heterosexual, male and female bisexual and male and female homosexual. The heterosexual role is of course for species propogation. The bisexual role is to be adaptable and support the tribe in whatever role is needed. The homosexual role is a bit more specialized. A homosexual female will, by her natural choices, never be so pregnant that she will not be able to go on a hunt, or protect the cave site and the tribe. A homosexual male will not be in the competition to get as much sperm into as many females as possible.
  7. Chapter 10

    Damned onion cutting ninjas snuck up on me at work. I TOTALLY wasn't crying. Really.
  8. I'm a day late, but thought I'd share anyway...the building on the left in the link posted below is where the wasband was living at the time of the earthquake. He was at work in Oakland. Should I find the fact that we married on 10/17/1992 oddly prophetic for our marriage? Twenty-five years later, it's a fairly apt description of the relationship.

  9. Prompt 330

    I am so glad that California just passed a law that the entire state has to offer rescues at pet stores that sell pets.
  10. Prompt 330

    Cute story, but I just have to say DON'T shop, adopt! Puppies in pet shops are from puppy mills. If you want to know why that's bad let me know.
  11. Prompt 323

    Very nice call back.
  12. Prompt 382

    It made my eyes well with tears even though I was at work.
  13. Chapter 18 - Bloom

    Well, that was a fucking surprise!
  14. On my way to work this morning Las Vegas Blvd (the Strip) was closed between Russell and Tropicana. On my way home tonight by a different route it was still closed, and you could still see swarms of police officers all along the closed portion of the street. 

     

    My roommate  works at a hotel in reservations. Over 90% of their calls today were cancelling reservations.

     

    It's been a very sad, weird day.

      First I'm glad you & roommate are okay.

      Unfortunately, peoples' memories are short termed. As sad and tragic as it was, they'll be back in droves and life will go on as before.

      I still can't believe it happened

      Any sane person will agree with you. However judging by the past and now this, the only question a realist might have, is when, where and how many will the next one destroy. After Sandy Hook, I fear nothing will make any  difference.

      WARNING: Rant ahead 

       

      The person responsible for this was clearly batshit crazy. The sheer number of weapons the man owned and the fact that almost all of them were fully automatic or capable of becoming fully automatic is significant. The ONLY purpose for that type of weapon is to build the largest body count in the shortest amount of time possible.  I am not anti-gun, but I most certainly am not an ammosexual who is going to slather and foam at the mouth about how "only good guys with guns can stop bad guys with guns."

       

      Nevada state law allows open carry.  You don't even have to have a permit. I'm fairly certain that there were at least a few people who were carrying weapons who were in the area when the nutjob opened fire. They were carrying single shot pistols. Maybe a semi-auto. He was on the 32 floor of the hotel with an arsenal of fully automatic weapons. What exactly do the people with that mentality think they were going to be able to do in that situation?  The S.W.A.T. unit couldn't pinpoint his location until the amount of cordite in the room set off the smoke detectors.

       

      I will state that most of the ammosexuals I know are in possession of a penis. Those same folks, who style themselves "good guys with guns" would have been of ZERO use in that situation and I know for a personal fact that at least one of them would be more dangerous because of the little blue BB's flying out of his ass from sheer terror than because of any weapon he might possess.

       

      The laws need to change. Background checks MUST be mandatory. If you have been in prison or the looney bin, you don't get anything except a squirt gun. A very small squirt gun. No prison or looney bin? Cool...now prove you can store and handle it responsibly. You can't do that? You get a squirt gun too. 

       

      On top of the above mentioned, NO ONE who is not in a military unit gets anything that is fully automatic or capable of being fully automatic. PERIOD. You want to shoot yourself in the foot or the dick? Single shot pistol works just fine for that. Need something to assuage your male ego? We might even let you have a SuperSoaker. 

       

      End of rant.

  15. It's official. I made it past 55.

      Good thing they raised the national speed limit a couple decades ago!  ;-)
