Restart

Gotta get things done again, even if it's some stupid little story in the Library. This place was a great stress release for me, and I need it again definitely.   Went from one job to another to another in the span of three weeks, and just facing that grand ole uncertainty about the future.   What's next for this here site? Another story? The BZPRPG? I don't know.   Maybe both, just overwhelm myself again. Seems like a great idea to me.

Black Friday

It's not worth it. I've worked in both retail and the food business. Don't go Black Friday shopping at midnight. Or at 3AM. Wait until like 7AM like a reasonable person. They'll still have TV's before Christmas. Those waffle toasters you're jazzed about? Still there. The latest iBox game? Boy, lemme tell you something about the way they will have it.   Enjoy family. Give thanks for all the good you have in this world.   Happy Thanksgiving

Boi

$1,456 in tips since I've started delivering pizzas. And this isn't even a rich town, it's more bordering poor/middle class.     It's a lot of money.

Do a computer job....

...get paid with a computer.   That was wild.   I was asked to repair and fix up two computers, both of which are rather fast and good machines once they were fixed. The lady then asked which one was better, so I let her know, and she gave me the slower one as payment.   Not complaining, I needed a good gaming machine....

OshKosh

I'm going to be gone for two weeks, as I am going to OshKosh WI to volunteer at the EAA airshow.   If there's anything anybody needs of me before I leave, message me and I'll try and get it down. At 3AM tomorrow morning, the bus pulls out and I am gone!

Getting Wrapped Up Into Things

I have a heart that aches for people that are hurting, that are in need, that need just a bit of help. I have a hard time saying no, because I never want to say no. I don't like denying people help. It just rubs me the wrong way.   But as a result, I can end up getting myself wrapping up in events that I have no clue where they started or where they will end. But that's who I am. It's what I am.   I help people.   And sometimes I find myself suffering for it.

Cyber Monday

Couple days late, but whatever.   Picked up some DLC for Europa Universalis IV(some unit packs, and the Art of War expansion).   And a war hammer. Legitimate, 100% steel and hickory war hammer from Cold Steel.   Yeah. It was a good day.     Plus, I had the day off!

Still not over FO:4

Yeah, beating a dead horse but I'm still not over what FO:4 should have been. Could have been. Graphics were great, I loved the settlement building(but I think they should have cut down on the amount of settlement locations...), the Gunplay was great, but other then that....it kinda sucked. Period.   Ah, oh well. Can't have a good thing all the time.

January 2018

January of 2018 was the last time I was here.   It's been a long time. Lot's changed. I broke a couple of times, picked myself up. Still kicking.   Might write a short story or two. About something.

A bit of honesty

I'm rarely on this site and have rarely posted about anything in any format because the honest truth is I've been on this site before under a different username, a different account.  That account was bullied off the site.  I was much younger then. I was ignorant of things and was just looking to have a good time with friends I made. Older members, adults, on this site came after me when I was 14 years old and bullied me off the site.  That's the BZPower I remember and know. I mad

Dusty....

..is a great name for a dog. Horrible condition for a blog however.   Not saying I'm writing some Bionicle-ish stuff(and totally not saying I found some random books of Bionicle for like, $3 books for a box full at a garage sale), and I'm not saying I may be more active.   I'm just saying Dusty is a great name for a dog.

First Post, Obviously

Ah, well, I went and did it, I became a Premier Member of BZPower. Why?   Well, honestly it wasn't because of Bionicle. I had no idea what Bionicle was in fact when I first joined here over a month ago. No clue at all. I was told to come here for the BZPRPG, actually. That it was a better RPG to get into; active, semi-friendly, and somewhat competent moderators. Now I can vouch for the first one, but I haven't been around long enough to actually say anything on the last two promises made to me.

Your Daily Safety Briefing

Gather 'round ladies and gents, because it has come to my attention that nobody has been giving you poor chaps regular safety briefings.   That, that is a crime.   Here's a simple one for you to start off with:   When you are about to head out to volunteer to run a parking lot for 500+ cars for a classic car show, do not grab the bottle of expired sunblock to use. Grab the bottle of new stuff, even if it says it only lasts for 3 hours, versus the 6 for the expired one. Because it won't matter

The Arrival of Logan, Ft. LEGO Batman

Saw three films recently, Arrival, Logan, and LEGO Batman.   Gotta say, all three really blew my expectations out of the park and were fantastic films.   Arrival was one of the best Sci-Fi films I have seen in a long time. You know why? It has a lot less to do with "DIE ALIEN SCUM" and more with actually just communication. It was fascinating and I loved it so much. The big reveal at the end and how it all played out just made it perfect. Definitely recommend seeing it.   Logan was very good

American Empire: The Victorious Opposition

Ending to a mostly MEH series. Not enough action, just a lot of dialogue explaining that there will be action. Not terribly pleased, but the ending was definitely exciting with the outbreak of the Second Great War(World War II in our history.).   I noticed Turtledove, the author, repeated himself a lot in the writing. Yes, we know this POV Character works in a canning factory, and yes we know she pulls three levers, and yes we know she lost a husband in the war, and YES FOR GOODNESS' SAKES WE K
