@nuhn congratulations :)
If you like playing D&D you should check out some of my books. Most of them are free!
If you do read any of them, I'd be incredibly grateful if you left a review. They help people find and enjoy my work, which in turn helps me pay rent, which in turn helps me make more books because it's hard to write when you don't have a place to live. =)
@edebill Boo.Praying at your tech.
@edebill I read that at first as rain. As much rain as we've been having here in OKCish I was like NOOOOOO.
#DnD today may or may not have 8 players (eight!!) and some may or may not be running late. So I'm doing a bar scene where they can come in whenever.The bar has been taken over by a bard whose tongue has been cut out -he's quite, mad, yes. Now I need to figure out spells he can cast with only gestures. Too bad magic mouth couldn't be used to cast ha ha. He'd be unstoppable.
@offby1 not mine-I'm just thrilled that you pointed it out :-)
@dogtrax Our school has snack break travel around to sell treats to students in the classroom. Sometimes as sub-band teacher, I would just be playing a movie for the kids and they could actually participate in snack break. But we'd have to send a student to find the cart and tell them it was okay to stop by. (Apparently the band director only had to snarl at them to go away once and it stuck ha ha)
"Do not feed the musicians!" the band director pleaded with a smile.
A few hundred students were waiting to perform as the jazz band took the stage. While they waited, the musicians, ages 12-14, were no doubt eyeing the treats available in the lobby.
"You play wind and brass instruments," she explained. "You use your breath. It's not good for your instruments if you play after just eating. Yuck. Families, do not feed the musicians!"
We all laughed, and then followed instructions. #smallstories
Oof I've been quiet lately. Busy with the everything. Yup.
#DnD this week has one new player and two new characters joining the party & I'm guessing 2 players who can't make it. So our story will begin like this: 2 bards walk into a bar...I'm calling this spitballed gem BardOff at the Stumbleon Inn. It's a real Brew Ha Ha.
@offby1 Thank you!
My husband this morning was growling about how his female boss responded to some derogatory statements from their male boss by just ignoring them. I snorted and told him that she's a woman in a STEM field so yeah, she's had LOTS of practice. He asked me what the heck that had to do with it. SMH Sometimes, I think my husband lives under a rock.
@shopbot Putting some time into my journal - I have a big NOPE mental block that's been happening there, an emotional knot I need to pick through.
@MicroSFF Oh, I love this very much. A thumbs up from my daughter, too :)
@FRENDEN WOW that's just fantastic!
@jessmahler Will it put stress on you to try and keep it going?
And my mind is in a great place. Weight loss is good, kids visiting this weekend is awesome and best of all, I didn't snarl at my mother-in-law for being her normal growly self.
She thinks my tractor's hacker is sexy.
It wouldn't hardly turn on,
And made this chuggin noise as it went along...
@MmeLibertine Eating salad. Wyd?
