Yes, I will post them. Just as soon as I can find the camera I took on the trail…
The weather forecast called for 10-25mm of rain starting in the morning and ending in the late afternoon.
I work from 8h00-4h30. We don’t work in the rain.
We drove in (it had already started to rain), we carried timbre and lumber (in the now driving rain) and then sat in the truck until we got the all-clear to go home.
Why did the trail boss not just: A) check the forecast like everyone else, or B) cancel the day when it started raining upon arrival?
post script: I realize a lot of you guys are American, so 10-25mm is about 0.5-1inch of rain.
Sorry Anon, it’s a long story. And frankly I wouldn’t be sharing this with an anon anyway.
Thanks anon. At least someone thinks so.
Oh I know you didn’t mean to anon, I hardly ever tell that pet peeve to anyone. Makes for an awkward conversation.
The main issue is partially me, and the other part is my life. (Well duh) There’s just so much going on with my family that for me to drop another emotional load on them isn’t fair. It’s easier for me to force myself to be patient and wait for things to settle down than it is for me to knowingly burden them with additional problems.
Not sure who this is, but I might as well let you know you’ve touched on a pet peeve.
I have more than a single dimension. I am a complicated being. I may get excited and talk about only one thing for a little while, but I am more than that one thing.
But moving past that, I know what you’re saying. I’ve tried to open up before and show what I’m feeling, but that leads to SO many complications in friendships and the like.
Experience has taught me to: welcome many, befriend some, and give close trust to few. Only those in the last two categories ever get anything even resembling the true story.
Recently I’ve made changes to the trusted list. I still have to talk to my close friends about some things and decide who gets what details.
I think I’ll send myself off to sleep with some Firefly. Yeah, that’s always a good plan.
And it was a bit of a disappointment.
It started out like the last game: everyone meets in the amphitheater to hear the rules and storyline, and then the game begins. Only this time the game began while we heard the rules.
My friend Robert was playing a scientist and, as it turns out, he was the original zombie. He turned and attacked us while he stood behind me. I didn’t even get a chance to face him, he just tagged me on the back. So I spent the entire game as a zombie :/
But that was pretty cool too. I got to watch the horde slowly grow and develop, and see more take-downs and swarming than last game.
Oh, I also got to make a game-blind out of branches and ambush a couple humans as they walked down a trail. Good times.
It does get easier with each time, but it’s still hard to talk about it.
- Mal: Mercy is the mark of a great man
- Mal: Okay, I'm a good man
- Mal: I'm alright
- Mal: You know they say "never hit a man with a closed fist", but it is on occasion hilarious.
- Simon: The fight didn't attract any attention--?
- Mal: No feds, just an honest brawl between folks.
Going out tonight to catch a show downtown. My coworkers have been talking about this band for a while now and I found out that they’re playing tonight.
So I’m going to hang out with Amanda (she’s pretty awesome, just sayin’), and then catch said show.
Fun times, as previously noted, are indeed afoot.
- Decide to take a shower
- Decide to check email first
Woah! New followers!
I will be checking out your blogs (like I do for all my new followers), but first I will shower and eat supper. It was a long day at work today.
It amuses me how guys always call each other “man.” You both did it here. Kind of adorable…sorry, adorable isn’t really what guys like to be called but meh, I stand by it.
I both did it because he did it, because I say it all the time, and also because he seems like quite a manly guy. I mean, look at his avatar pic. Would you call him anything but ‘man’?
Bieber vs.Beethoven is a favorite, so is Darth Vader vs. Hitler. Those videos are hilarious!
I’m still hurting from laughing at Napoleon vs Napoleon. Oh man, historical rap battles are such a good idea.
These things are hilarious, I can’t even describe how much I was laughing at some of the match-ups.
I’ll be back in a couple hours.
Wow, thanks man.
Now if I could only get this kind of sentiment from people irl…
anjelicamarie replied to your post: So the Gameboy Stuff is Starting to Arrive
I’ve had Mass Effect 2 sitting in my bookshelf for months and no X-Box to play it. Kill me. It’s the only humane thing to do.
Last week I realized that KotOR 2 wasn’t going to work on my PC. After I had bought it, and waited for it to arrive.
I now have a small pile of games which are awaiting my next laptop and/or upgrade.
The only problem is that the Gameboy itself hasn’t shown up yet. So I’m here with the games arriving, but no way to use them :/
Well seeing it from the other side is difficult for guys too. Guys are always told that “girls are normally friendlier anyway, so the smiles and attention she’s giving you may be nothing at all. Don’t read into it.”
That being said, there are some things that might show, and that you might notice.
- He’s always around. Guys can’t help it, if we like you we’re going to spend as much time around you as possible. Really.
- He tries to keep the conversations going. Whether he’s interested in the topic or not does not matter. Any time he can spend talking to you is more time he can spend trying to figure you out.
- He refers back to previous conversations. Yes, he was actually listening.
If he’s doing these things, chances are pretty good that he likes you. Now, don’t bet your life savings on it, but a $20 bet with your best friend wouldn’t be off the mark.
First time since February.
I guess it’s the “not always being at my computer” part of my new schedule.
So 2.5 hours of hiking to get to the work site, then 3 hours of work, and then 2.5 hours of hiking to get out again.
How much are helicopters again?
giftsoftears replied to your post: We Tried Something Different This Weekend
this honestly was the highlight of my weekend. We need to see more of each other!
I know right? I’m in for anything that takes place on friday or saturday nights, or any other night before 9pm.
This is the unfortunate reality of working 7am-5pm every weekday :/
We tried bare and brutal honesty.
Not about each other, but about ourselves. We revealed the secret pains and struggles that everyone of us carried.
There was no judgement, only the confirmation of understanding. Nobody on Earth is perfect; everyone has baggage, and everyone has their burdens.
I want to see more of this group of friends.
And even though I have no wireless internet and no cell phone, I am posting. Good thing I brought my Kindle… With free 3G.
Yup, I still love it.
However, the keyboard is kinda shitty so I think I’ll make an all-encompassing post when I get home.
Until then, adios.
14. Telling people what they want to hear so they’ll stop asking me.
15. People who constantly complain about just about everything. I mean, is there no way to satisfy you?
18. Sometimes I think I’m mentally more of a child than anything else. But then I see other people who are much worse off and I feel better.
18. Some people think I have an infinite supply of patience, and they’re wrong. It’s just that I have enough self control not to show when I’ve run out of patience.
27. Hope: “So you weren’t implying that I’m a lesbian?”
29. Being in an airport. I just wanna go up, buy a cheap ticket, and see where it takes me. It is for this reason I normally avoid airports.
