  1. Didn’t really want to make a new topic so I thought I would post this here. After nearly 4 years of hard work, literal blood, sweat and tears, failure and self doubt, finally came the culmination of a black belt for my son a couple weeks ago. I’m soooo fucking proud of him. I can’t even describe how great it felt seeing his Instructor finally tie that black belt around him after years of taking him to karate 4 days a week and endless tournaments and wiping away all of the blood, tears and snot off him from sparring matches, wins, losses and failed tests.

  2. So, the Girl Trip this year was mostly business for me since my parents' death. Mom passed on December 6th, so now, I own a condo in Florida. (Let me know if you want a cheap vacation in Seminole 4 miles from the beach). I haven't been through probate yet and now I have to file not only my own but my Mom's taxes. Anyway, I had their ashes scattered together from a little plane. My Dad had been a pilot in the Air Force and it was his wish-my Mom just wanted to be with him. They took pics and video for me and it was very emotional, unexpectedly. The whole package had to be biodegradabl

  3. Here's the thing though. This isn't Vader's story. Vader had six movies to tell the story you're talking about, It's been done. It's established. This story is Obi-Wan's. As much as a big character as he is in the saga, he only has a few big moments as a character. He is meant to be the baseline Jedi so that we can see how Anakin, and then Luke, differ on their own paths to become Jedi. Obi-Wan is a central character to Star Wars, but he has always been a supporting one. This show is the reverse. We have gotten more out of him, on a human personal level, in these three episodes than we di

  5. What a time machine this is! I hope all is well in these strange times! I did most of my posting in my late teens and early 20s in the wrestling forum & lando, but started out in Star Wars. I'm 34 , married , and weirder than ever now. This place woke me up as kid to how screwed up with world can and would be. This place def. helped make me who I am today! Cheers.

  7. Some of you may have seen in the job bitching thread last week where I said that my old boss's old team lead, Mimi, called me to get permission to share my number and also to tell me that I should go into business for myself. Mimi's suggestion surprised me, but it's not like I haven't let the idea live rent-free in the back of my mind for years anyway. Within 2 days of her phone call, I'd set 2 appointments with real estate agents who want my help. It's been a whirlwind of anxiety and excitement and downright fear. But I'm going to do this. I'm going to start my own company helping real

  8. Tons. I was making super headway on this endeavor - had a website about 90% designed and set up, had all my documents and several templates set up for various types of jobs, had all my paperwork for an LLC ready to go, and then I had to put everything on hold. My husband's job started going south...quickly. In our quest to get my husband help for his obvious ADHD, we've actually discovered that he has some pretty major memory and comprehension issues that ADHD just doesn't explain. Some of these symptoms are things that I've always just attributed to "Trevor bullshit", but I'm

  11. I have never gone to a High School Reunion, in part because there is no possibility of meeting the cast of Romy & Michelle, but really because ugh. I have bumped into people from High School however. One ex-classmate was amazed how my wife and I were still together when we had started dating at 15 years old. They asked, “How do you do it?” I quickly responded with, “Mostly from behind.”

  12. All right, so, I officially gave notice at my job. Last day is May 13th. My boss asked me to hold off talking about it for now, even though I already told my two teammates, but they won't rat me out. I'm a little jittery right now and I'm not sure why, but it FEELS SO FUCKING GOOD. Such a massive relief to finally be leaving this place. Not that it was all bad, of course, but this has been long overdue. And for those of you that don't know (pretty much anyone who wasn't in the Zoom a month ago), the reason I'm quitting is thanks to the lovely Destiny Skywalker and her husband, I got a job

  13. The kid had a 50 page IEP coming in and has been in a full behavior support facility since the first grade. He has significant OCD and when it kicks in (and peer relationships is the trigger) it manifests itself as EXTREME opposition defiance disorder. This is the first school where he has ever had friends and they were having conflict. Since he has never had friends, he has never had to deal with friend conflict. So his solution, just like boys with crushes on girls, was to harass them. So me intervening (he was throwing kethup packets at them at lunch) triggered his ODD. He came ba

  16. You may not know this from my posts on here but I;m a total sucker for Christmas. I've wanted to make this list for a while but never have had the chance until this year. I have nowhere else to post it because no one else would care, eventhough I know no one here cares either! Thats ok though! As you will be able to tell I feel for the most part Xmas songs need to be old, classic. They need to feel eternal as if they just are and always have been part of Christmas. I don't think any song on here was made after I was born. Certainly there are none that I remember when they debuted. If you like

  20. There are not any posts missing. For the record I am of course Spider-Man, Torch, THT, etc etc. I went off because of Brando gatekeeping. The entire idea that someone has to be specialized to comment is repugnant. It is a tactic to quiet dissent. The US has been slowly dismantled from the inside for years, people have been showing what is happening for years while fence sitters in turn say that both sides are wrong. “It’s both sides, so sit down.” No person or organization is perfect. And there is plenty of blame to show that Democrats aren’t seizing opportunities and the pathways pr

  21. I’m more mad at elected democrats. Their only response, to fucking anything republicans do, is ask for money and tell us to vote. Fucking ineffectual pussy ass cowards. Anyone with half a brain KNEW this was coming, and knows more is coming. And they do nothing to stop it.

  23. Agree with Tank on the “nope never.” If Vader finds out about Luke in this series, we should all just cancel our Disney+ subscriptions and never watch SW again. I’ve heard Filoni in past interviews say (in response to Clone Wars when Vader dueled Ahsoka on whether Ahsoka could’ve saved Anakin) the only one who could bring the good out of Vader is Luke in ROTJ. Anyone or any other situation Vader finds himself in, as much as we the audience would like to think Anakin could show some compassion for his former friends, that would completely nullify ROTJ.

  24. Wow. I forgot about this thread. I was getting panicky about work recently and looked it up to remind myself I have shit going on, then got busy. So since this was last updated... the two jobs I was on up above, both were finished and paid out. The Pilot didn't get set up, cause as I warned the, the concept was a better feature than a TV show. They just made me an offer to rewrite it as a movie, and we're negotiating with them. The other job was the video game Devil In Me from Supermassive, which comes out this fall. In 2021 I jumped onto a new horror anthology show for Blumho

This is actually a term of endearment, I have real life crazy aunts and I love getting to see them because we have so much fun and the best conversations. I had so much fun at the dinner I had with Lace and Tami. I think I would have a good time with Spammy, too.

  30. Krawlie and Icy are 2 of my most favorite people in the world. At this point in life, they're the only friends I have that I consistently rely on for emotional support, practical advice, and general entertainment. If I ever win the lottery, I'm buying us a commune to live on with our families.

  34. I think the people like that are the most afraid. They're afraid of anything being slightly outside the norm. Afraid of having to make hard choices and deal with things not being as expected. We're all struggling with life no longer being what we considered normal, but these are people who are SO wrapped up in what they viewed as normal that they can't deal with anything even slightly outside of that, let alone a global pandemic. Life must be ordered the way they want it, or it's wrong and evil. And they have the temerity to call mask wearers cowards.

  35. So yesterday I finally got a job. Unofficially at least. I should have an official offer letter by this evening. This is fantastic news because my husband's job is not going well and his medical problems are starting to all come to light. Now his doc wants to schedule him for an MRI because he's concerned about Trevor's memory loss.

  41. I might be partnering up with a good friend of mine in her real estate business. She got her license right about the time I started working this job last year. We met at the real estate investment company like 10+ years ago. She was the head of our construction department, and one of the only people in the company I could stand to be around. Through the years she's been like a huge savior, throwing us small jobs from her property preservation company and her husband's home reno company. Now she's an agent and doing her own flips on the side. She's doing well enough that she wants some he

  48. Well, pleased with what I've seen so far. I asked if we could start on the first day instead of waiting for 9/21 when we close. They said yeah sure. I mentioned that I wanted to get in touch with the school psychologist to talk about IEP and placement and they said oh no one will be here until 8/31. A few hours later the principal called me to say hey how can we help? Asked for last evaluation and IEP because he wants to make sure my son is in the right program at the right school on day 1 instead of jerking us around. I know they have a program for kids with ASD and social communication and s
