    I thought the four man match was going to end with Nelson victorious and demanding to wrestle for the Captain hero mask, I guess it's too soon.

    I love that Youngest Agent (and it sounds like the rest of your family) have your back. I like that kids style lol. Yah it was really sucky to get my first and second co-op because I was against other co-ops with more experience and honestly it felt way harder in the moment. Plus there was all the added pressure of your peers getting co-ops before you or getting them "so easily". Its a really shitty dance!

    A cold winds blows through the Guild Hall as the door opens. NictheRugger walks in, wrapped in a fur cloak worthy of someone living near the Great Wall. She's weary after her last guild assignment, having hit some big setbacks, but is ready to jump back in and overcome those roadblocks she hit after some much-needed recovery time with her fellow rangers. Dropping her trusty ruck at a small booth, she walks up to the bar. "Mead, please, my friend. And perhaps some pot pie if you have it?" Tipping the barkeep in thanks, she takes her food and drink and walks back to her booth. After putting everything down, she grabs a small leather book and an Ever-Full (TM) quill from her ruck, placing them next to her. After a pause, Nic picks the quill back up and traces an anti-reality-warp rune on the strap of the ruck, to prevent her favorite travel equipment from unwanted side-effects of unplanned hat-induced reality warping. She had forgotten to do this last time, and her ruck had been transformed from its usual shape to a saddlebag, barely large enough to hold a change of clothes, let alone the small library and armory she carries with her. Nodding in satisfaction at her work, she puts the quill down, and then slides into the booth. The notebook, her trusty planner, remains open as she eats and reviews her goals and schedule for the next four weeks. After eating, she grabs a book from the ruck, and settles in, taking time to enjoy the book. Looking at the traditional ranger bar fight, she smiles before settling in with the book. She needs some time to rest, but she'll join in soon enough. I'm excited for another challenge! Hit some setbacks last round, but the ranger community has been great at cheering me back up and encouraging me to keep pushing forward. I have to say, as much as I'm not a beer drinker, I'm always so impressed with how creative craft beers can get in the U.S. I went to a Renn faire one year, and had one of the best beers I've ever tasted. It was a fruit beer that had so much fruit flavor, I couldn't even taste the beer!

    Gotta come to Texas. The US beer scene has been crapped on in Europe for years. I can't say I blame you, like Australia sending us Fosters or The Netherlands sending us Heinekin, we only sent you our crappiest stuff. Our craft beer scene is unparalleled in the world. The very thing that makes Europe's traditional beers stellar, their strict quality control laws, are precisely what holds it back. We are allowed to experiment and do all kinds of crazy stuff, and as a result get some incredibly innovative and tasty concoctions.
  10. The house goes to the other if one of us dies, we sorted that out when we bought it in December. If TH dies I am the beneficiary for his pension and the life insurance he gets through work, and we're in the process of taking out a joint life insurance policy too that pays out to the other should the worst happen so that will all be sorted as well. It seems in this day and age there really are no strictly practical reasons to get married. Just the dress, cake and holiday And like I said, I might just buy the dress anyway. Wear it around the house, that sort of thing. It's very pretty it would be a shame to only wear it for one day anyway.
  11. Alan Rickman and his wife never married until he was diagnosed with cancer, and that was just so she would keep the property and money. There are plenty of reasons to have cake and wear a dress, and I’m happy you are happy. I am going to obsess about your wasp situation today. Weight fluctuations suck. i laughed at your break room changing. It sounds like you are preoccupied with your thoughts

    yesterday was another crazy day. we're getting quite fed up with our lender who 1) accidentally hard pulled my credit a second time last week 2) told us we could work with the lawyer we chose 3) told us we couldn't work with the lawyer we chose but could specify the requirements 4) told us there's a work-around to use that lawyer after we had already rushed around/stressed/called 3 other firms. also insurance barriers to my dad's recovery are cropping their ugly head and the family is saying well we just have to say no to the doctors if we disagree which means, I have to say no. urg. anyway i did get in a few minutes of yoga last night, cooked up a hungryroot dinner, and prepped some overnight oats for the next couple bfasts this week. i also had a beer last night. this morning i got up with no issues and ran 2 miles outside. it was much colder than i figured but still nice. lots of walking interspersed so it took 27 minutes.

    TGP going the distance!

    hey guys, I'm here! I can't describe to you how FAST my life has seemed lately. wow. I feel like things are going very very fast and I am gasping to catch up. Just as an instance of how quickly things seem to be happening. Yesterday after the Hike; I set a pretty fast pace with my hiking partner and we arrived to the car to my mind ON time. but the travelling from HIS car to mine was apparently a little longer than anticipated. (this last hike was in a remote area- where there aren't as many asphalt roads). so I was running late by the time I got to my car. it seems like you only find bump into slow drivers in remote desolute places when you're behind and I knew if I remained stuck behind the two cars ahead of me I would be late to fixing my leak and make my wife pretty mad at me. so I took a chance; turned at a dirt road I was 90% sure took a short cut into the woods. it was Good decision! though a little rough... it definitely cut mileage and I arrived at the house with just minutes to spare. I changed clothes, misplaced the car keys and rushed off to get my tires fixed using the spare set of keys. bought dinner, and arrived home at 8pm. Another Long day! I left at 6:30am. as for the car keys. I'll find it! I didn't do anything awful to them. I literally didn't have time. ....I WILL post a hiking report for Yesterday (Wednesday's hike) in a bit- It was pretty,pleasant and eventful. but lets wait til I get the pics online. Happy Easter guys! life is going so far I will surely barely get a chance to posting before then. but at least I will get 2 more hikes in. This coming weekend is my back to back hikes... where I will be Hiking late friday morning and then return for an early morning hike Saturday morning. the downside for the hikes? Rain. they are talking up the chance for a pretty wet storm. Not Heavy amounts of rain but pervasive drizzly weather. this will be a good opportunity to test my dad's raingear and see how waterproof I really am. if not, I suppose, I will just get wet but at least I have a short night to warm up and dry up before I do the morning hiking. .... and after that guys (not to look too far).... there's a bit of a break in the Hiking. I will try to keep up walks so I don't lose the conditioning I have.... but its honestly fairly stressful on everyone to be hiking for 2 days a week, like this. not only for myself but my hiking partner. there is two unhappy wives regarding the big training that is happening. ... and the only other thing to say Is that my daughter goes back to college this friday. that's always welcome, as she totally needs to get her own life going and figured out. There's no Too many of those semester's left. I think this is the Last of her Junior year. in the meanwhile, it always changes life quite a lot when she leaves. and when the hiking training slows down; hopefully life as a whole slows down. I feel like , surely, it will be easier in a slowed up life to miss potholes. ------------- I saw these the other day. Siberia Squill they are not wild , in these parts... but they are really beautiful! I should plant some- as their are not enough of them around for as pretty as they are and being a particularly early perennial. I'll post a wild flower when I get to the hike report....

    Update stuff: Yesterday was headed to a HUGE dumpster fire. I had told the offer place I wasn't going to be able to work for them. Nothing was going right and I was just done. Then this thing popped up and its looking pretty solid. I don't want to say it out loud yet, but I am pretty certain it will happen. After that, I was still tired and over people, but I got a new wind. I didn't study that much last night, but I did some. I got all my boxes and went to bed earlier since I was just tired. But this may be the turning point I need. Point wise, I only got 54 pts which is the lowest yet this challenge. Looking at the spreadsheet it kinda feels like I am going the wrong direction, but we will see. Strength - 6 out of 6 Flexibility - 9 out of 8 Life and chaos - 13 out of 11 Fight Chaos - Clean- 5 out of 5 Fight Chaos Purge- 5 out of 5  Walking - 4 out of 2  Fuel - 12 out of 10 Total 54 out of 47 Okay, off to adult or something. I am not really feeling the whole "go to work" thing, but I need to anyway.

    That was the last time we said we would ever do that. I felt guilt being with the family doing fun things because I needed to study. I felt guilty studying because I should be enjoying family. Youngest Agent has put signs on my chair more than once that say "Mom is studying, go away. Do not disturb"

    Thanks I know they won't care but my lack of experience seems to make this whole finding an internship let alone a job harder.

    I was cleaning up some stuff and I found a test from when I was in school the first time that I missed one question on. ONE. I wrote the write answer down then apparently wrote "Why did you answer this you *** *** you know better." Yeah. The me back then was harder on me than I am now. I know GPA won't matter that much, and the same diploma helps some (It also demotivates because I am killing myself and the guy that got a just enough GPA still gets one, why bother) but its more a pride thing. A Maybe I will actually know this stuff, but I doubt it.

    It would be hilarious if you had a neck sign "Shhhh.... studying in progress" haha. Yah family is hard lol cause usually it is meant with good intentions and they are oblivious.

    Yes.... none of my employers have cared about my 4.0 that I worked for lol... Once you are out of college/uni they do not care. At least that has been my experience so far.

    Thanks, Sometimes I need the reminder this is the win. This was a "Oh, shes not in a bubble. She is visiting for their 1 week a year, I must spend time with her. Nevermind the fact she was up till 1 Am last night doing homework and then up early doing it again. Part is they are just so excited to see us, but part is they have no real idea what I am doing. It is

    TGP starts in a rough place...

    yeah there's a little bit of luck when it comes to avoiding severe thunderstorms when hiking. Happily they don't happen very often and its a BIG county. but espacially if you are out in the woods for a long time, like a backpacking trip, you are taking a chance on the thunderstorms particularly in the summer. as for NOW, well, I think the ONLY thunderstorm we had put a F2 tornado down (briefly) in a neighboring town. nobody got hurt, an store that had closed for the day got badly damaged its just....very, very unlikely, wierd weather that Pennsylvania doesn't see often AT ALL.
  26. I would vote against a Wookie or Ewok costume for the race. That might get a bit hot. However, you could do something like these (serious options here)
