  3. Yesterday I caught a mistake that was about to cost my boss $22,000 and about 6 months of time. I should give myself an Employee of the Month award for it.

  4. Saturday, I went to the San Juan Islands! It's THE vacation destination in this area-lots of big money (Oprah had a house here) but plenty of regular people, too. It's very Pacfic Northwest but without most of the rain-it's all in our 'banana belt'. I've lived in Seattle for 38 years and had never been there once. I have a friend who has a house on Orcas Island and I went to visit her. A wonderful hour-long ferry ride to get there but once I did, it was all girlfriend time and noshing. AND THERE WERE KITTIES. best weekend in a long time.

  5. My interests have moved on. I just don’t care much about this world anymore. It’s not just the end of GOT, it’s Martin’s disinterest/disdain/inability to produce, or whatever you want to call it, as well. Hope it’s a great show and people who DO still care enjoy it, though.

  9. This show is a masterclass in everything. Conning for decades and getting away with (more or less) murder... and it's a little old lady from Omaha that brings it all down thanks to his hubris.

  10. They can wear blue or khaki pants/skirts and a choice of red, white or blue polos. We are combating gang culture in schools. I think it works pretty good. At least it makes it easier for parents for purchasing because it’s simple. A lot of parents appreciate it too because they can stock up on sales. And we know which are our students. Our school colors are red and white but blues wash better and hide stains so we see more navy than red. We had a high school student on the property once and he was pretty easy to peg as not supposed to be there.

  15. On the Ringer Verse podcast which aired from SW Celebration 2022 in Anaheim, they mentioned that contrary to what was being said about Obi Wan, that show did have a big budget. But it all went to pay the actors. Getting all the main players to return was expensive, particularly when someone like Liam Neeson was reluctant to “do TV.”

  16. I'm 38. I look maybe 10 years younger than that. I guess I'm mentally young, although I don't have any desire to party like someone in their 20s does. I can enjoy conversations about flooring, timber and renovating houses... so that's pretty middle aged. But I love playing video games and listening to rock, metal and punk. I still goof around like a kid. I dress like I'm in my 20s. I have long hair. I feel like a young person with the responsibility of a kid and a house but that's all. I have quite a few friends in their mid/late 20s still and work with young people a lot and I feel like

  19. I'm a super believer in it-- on the big scale, as in life choices, but also on the small scale, as in my writing process. I'm not sure where it comes from, or how even to control it, but my life has been significantly better since I tuned into it more. I kind of think of it like a background process. Like sometimes in design work, photoshop needs to process and crunch a filter and needs a few minutes before I can do anything else. So I generally bop over to my browser to start hunting for the next element I need, or check my email, or come here, or whatever-- and photoshop is still workin

  20. I hate this thread. It was the last thing I read before going to bed last night and all my dreams were awful. Losing kids/wife, going back to school and failing, family dying, exes coming back, old jobs, and for some reason using a womens public restroom barefoot.

  22. This is a bigger indictment on Kylo than Reva. He absolutely should have stayed evil the whole way through. His redemption arc was dumb as shit anyway.

  23. The Mandalorian made it seem like the future of SW was TV shows and it was better off that way. But the cheap way they are producing these series makes me wish they had stuck to films. I hate how the Obi Wan and BOBF suffered from a lack of budget. I think Obi Wan especially would’ve had better results as a well-funded planned out film.

  24. I think the thing with Reva is this: she didn't kill Luke because she had a conscience, but she isn't necessarily redeemed or good. She killed a buttload of jedi, and anyone else who got in the way. She just didn't kill Luke, but that doesn't mean she is good. Unlike Vader, however, she didn't do anything to redeem herself the way Vader did. At the very end, Vader sacrificed himself to save Luke and the rest of the galaxy by killing the emperor. Reva on the other hand, only realized she had become the monster she sought to kill, but she didn't really atone, either. Just because one doesn

  25. Yeah but Yoda’s an asshole. He’s the teacher trope character that insults the apprentice for not knowing things they couldn’t possibly know, yet refuse to tell them, then expect an apology later when the apprentice saves the day with little to no help from said teacher. Yoda never gave a shit about Luke. He only cared about winning. Fuck Yoda. Obi-Wan, though flawed himself, actually gave a shit and could admit when he was wrong. Yoda never did and never could. Most overrated character from the OT.

  30. Last night I had the schools first day opening dream where I dream everything that can go wrong and wake up hot and sweaty. Stuff like a kid who won't be still and talks WAY too much and a bitchy mom giving me specific instructions for her weird child and none of the books are right and the office keeps calling on the intercom to ask for attendance and I lose half my students at recess and the stupid board markers are all dry and one explodes on me and none of the parents remember to come get their kids when it's all done and I have to take them home and I only have peanut butter but no jelly

  31. Teeth falling out is usually because you've said something you wish you hadn't. At least that's the classic interpretation. Being chased is also a very common anxiety dream. Radio people have the best anxiety dreams! being on the air with nothing to say or play and you have to avoid dead air... I haven't had one dream-or haven't remembered having one of my Mom since she died. That makes me sad.

  34. Driving in Italy is the most terrifying thing I've ever done. If you have 2 lanes they will pass in between the lanes. We were driving on a highway and there was a sign that was literally a rock and an arrow pointing at the rock. We said what the hell does that sign mean? 2 seconds later we almost ran into a giant Boulder that was parked in the middle lane. My husband downshifted and changed lanes just in time. I love how instead of breaking up the Boulder and removing it, they just made a sign that meant Giant Fucking Boulder Ahead.

  35. I got rid of my Yaris a number of years ago, though I wish I kept it. They are nice little beep beeps. I traded mine in for a Prius Prime. I live close enough to work that I was able to drive on all electric for the vast majority of all of my driving. After 2 years I decided to get rid of it in favor of having a much smaller car payment. Well, my childhood dream car came up for sale and I traded it in for a 2000 BMW Z3. I drove the shit out of that little convertible, including in the winter, which is obviously very inadvisable. Eventually I sold that to a friend who took it off-roading in Ida

  36. We have a family at the school that takes in foster kids. They took in two bc their parents beat their 6 year-old younger sibling so bad he had to be life flighted to Denver and has permanent brain damage and is in a semi-vegetative state since the incident. They have not been found guilty so they still have some educational rights. We are holding back one a year so we had a meeting. Their lawyer has to come--and surprisingly she is pretty cool and realistic. When talking about the kid (neither have ever been in school and were only allowed to read the Bible) all she talks about is how wo

  37. On the face of it, this weeks episode (“Fun & Games”), cleared up a lot of loose ends. But how it did it… Very sad seeing how the Saul we know was created - yep, we have time jumped and are now in the BB era with 4 episodes to go and no sign of Gene as yet. What a brilliant series this has been.

  38. 100%. I just think the chance for real gold lies far from the established timeline. Ofcourse the chance for complete and utter failure is greater too. Keeping it in the timeline and using established characters to anchor shows is the safer bet. And they should make some safer bets.

  43. OMG Tucson is hysterically dumb. It's all gridded and lights and potholes and construction. But Phoenix is just endless sun beating down on you and loops and loops and loops. I love San Antonio most of the time because you can get anywhere in San Antonio in 30 minutes if you know the ways. I'm thinking about learning to drive a school bus. I want to be Freddy Kruger and the kids say "thanks for the ride, lady".

  44. I don't know, I still have nightmares the one time I drove on the LA freeway. I remember at one point a garbage bag flew out of the back of a pickup truck I was behind and smashed open on the hood of my car, spraying trash all over! All while going 80 MPH LOL. At least I did make it to my destination accident free.

  45. I've been saying for years where I am (Phoenix, AZ) gets worse every year, when it comes to driving. I would say Phoenix is second only to LA as far as shitty places to drive. People will not even let you in when getting on the freeway. In AZ, road rage is a thing, and I've even had a gun pointed at me before, because someone wouldn't let me in and I got over anyway. Even though they ended up behind me, they sped up to point the gun and yell at me. Another time, some dude who wouldn't let me over got pissed and followed me to bang on my window when I got off the freeway and was stopped at

  46. Hey, me too (IT in education, that is)! Although we are back in the office, we're allowed to work from home once a week which is nice. I really appreciate that as I hate driving to work, it's all highway and I swear people are crazier on the roads now. Just this morning I was changing lanes for an exit as there isn't much time to do so, so put my blinker on, look back, see a car fairly far enough back that I can get in, so start moving over. Apparently they didn't want to slow down as they blazed past me so fast I had to pull back over which almost made me hit the divider. It feels people on t

The vast majority of Marvel is stuff is very much for me-- a middle aged nerdy dude whose read comics his whole life. This was for a mindset and voice that's very much not me, and I am glad it exists. I am very much interested to see Kamal mix with the bigger MCU, which of course the mid-credits teaser set up. I was actually surprised by that one! Also, SPOILERS... Kamal is apparently going to b
