  1. 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

  2. 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.”

  3. Well we signed the lease after all. Still a little stressed about it, but it's done. A month and a half to go!

  4. 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

  9. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Minor updates! KP - still all good in the hood. She hangs out here around the kid now. He's polite. JP - same situation, see her once every couple months for a night Valley Mom - progressing fine. Also very chill. She makes homemade soap and sent KP a gift bag. KP responded by making her a papercraft junk journal. This so much better than having to pretend KP doesn't exist. Blue and I are still cuddle buds. Haven't seen Curly again, but we text. Going out next week with a girl who is married to another woman and is getting a hall pass to have some dude experiences

  16. My dad used to say “Shit the bed, Ruth!” as an expletive of choice, because his dad said it. Because my grandmother was named Ruth and had 17 kids at home and probably shit the bed at least with one of them.

  18. Yeah. I was surprisingly more anxious than expected, I had been so excited to do it all along. But it went well, k could see his brain shifting from whatever he wanted to talk to me about to how he’s supposed to do offboarding (is that a word). As much as I dislike the guy he handled the whole thing the correct way.

  22. Really well! They asked me to come in today to meet the rest of the team. There are only 6 people in the company, and 2 of them are in Arizona. They really seem more concerned about making sure I fit in with the overall culture of the office than anything. They said I should hear from them tomorrow. So we'll see.

  23. I have 3 interviews this week. I'm still planning and starting the company, and it's going well. But it's a slow build and we need money now. So I'm looking for slightly lower-level positions that I'd normally be going for. I've applied to maybe 5 places so far and gotten 3 introductory interviews. The next interview is in 15 minutes. This one is the only one that would be an actual career change. It's still real estate, but it's for a private investment firm that does hard money real estate loans to people wanting to begin investing in real estate doing flips. The job ad also says

  24. There's a backlog in general across the industry. A lot of the smaller boutiques went out of business during covid. They are the backbone of the industry. If you look at the end credits for any Marvel project you'll see no less than a dozen FX houses. The days of one company doing all the effects for a single movie are done. These days, given how everything is shot digitally, the number of effects shots in a movie has increased by tenfold. It's no longer just add in the giant monster or spaceship, it's also make the sky prettier, take out those trees, touch up this actor... with the advances i

  25. When I was in London I eschewed anything planned or guided. I just put boots to ground, googled up the stuff I knew I wanted to see, and tried to walk as much as possible to just be entrenched in the city.

  26. So, I live in the UK and have done for just under 15 years now. Never done guided tours because I moved to London and started living and working right away. I lived there for about 13 years. London is cool but it's very flat. I recommend staying above ground as much as possible to get your bearings, otherwise using the tube you get no sense of direction. You just pop up at your destination, and while that is convenient you get no real sense of the city as an environment. deffo use the tube if you're tired and just need to get somewhere, but I'd advise either walking or taking a bus to the majo

  28. This is exactly what I don't want to see with Vader. The payoff in ROTJ is based on the whole idea that there is nothing remotely human left in him. It's not enough that the characters believed Anakin to be completely gone, but the audience isn't shown any reason to think otherwise either, and that's what made his redemption so powerful. We were never shown anything to suggest it. It was like a miracle. Having him conflicted in this new series will mitigate what ROTJ did. Vader should be a one-dimensional evil character who is only driven by power. There's not supposed to be anything e

  30. Having just rewatched the whole run, it really does shift once Chuck dies tonally. I remember the first season feeling like WAIT THIS ISN'T SAUL WHAT IS HAPPENING, and then realized it was a slow burn. When he first started wearing the colorful suits to get himself fired from Davis and Main it locked in how slow of a burn it would be. I've honestly never seen a prequel manage to do so well as giving us really in depth and new stuff for characters we know the fate of. Saul and Mike's histories are now so complex and interesting. I do recall one plot point in BB, that Saul only then realize

  31. Yesterday I had a 2nd interview for a decent job that's in a different aspect of real estate than I'm used to. I heard back first thing this morning. Apparently he was "very impressed" and would like to meet me in person next week. So this is sounding good.

Judge me for that however you wish. Our world is without reason or compassion, and we’ve fucked up so much.

  35. It was a political decision posing as a legal decision for 50 years. The Court, in 1973, started with the decision that abortion should be legalized and then tried to find a way to make that happen. Even Amanda used to talk about how she was extremely pro-choice but the decision itself was legally horrible. Don't be surprised when political decisions change. You can absolutely disagree with the decision, but the abortion argument has been filled with nonsense for decades, including the initial decision in 1973.

  40. Hamburger helper is very.....helpful. OMG, you guys, I think that's how they got the idea for the name! In a pinch, I always keep a box of HH and a pound of ground beef if I'm running behind and need to get something whipped up super fast. I can't do spaghetti in a flash, I absolutely have to let my sauce simmer for several hours or it's not the same. And I always keep a few Red Baron pizzas in the freezer if I'm not in the mood to cook.

  44. The people coming up with these ideas are volunteer. However, council is poorly paid employees whose number one priority is CYA, which is why we had such strict rules for so long and they are finally gone, so if they don't care, why should we enforce extra rules. To show how CYA they normally are, I had to fill out a ridiculous form to take my troop horseback riding. There is an actual horseback riding BADGE at this level. The wording I got from PTA moms was that they were asking us to have COVID tests within 24 hours of arriving at camp. There is zero officialness. Asking isn't a requiremen

  45. I tried, I hated it. It already had marks against it being fantasy, but I DID unexpectedly love Inquisition so I have it a shot. I hated the feel of ii— the controls seemed counter intuitive, the response awkward, and the combat just sort of unrefined. I know I’m in the minority, but it just didn’t FEEL fun to play.
