Rough week…

My husband broke his finger last week, and goes into surgery tomorrow morning to put in a few screws and a plate to help it heal.

My eldest is struggling with school. My former A/B student in fifth grade is constantly forgetting her homework, and is struggling just to maintain a C average in sixth grade.

There is also stress from her constantly lying about doing her homework. She’ll tell me and her father that she’s done her homework, but then a few days later I’m getting emails from her teacher about how she hadn’t turned in anything for two weeks.

And of course there are always money issues. I’m always so stressed from living paycheck to paycheck…

Some days, I really wonder how much more of this I can handle…

Dragon Age Origins for the PC update

Since downloading the free copy of Dragon Age Origins for the PC, I’ve been on the hunt for mods to make my life easier in game. Since I’ve played thru the vanilla version of the game multiple times on the Xbox 360, I don’t feel bad at all about modding on the PC.

I discovered a few treats.

- A mod that allows me to keep my dog out all the time.

- A mod that changes the appearances of most of my companions and other NPCs to make them more appealing.

- A mod that allows me to skip the much despised Fade questline (I have NEVER installed a mod so quickly as when I found that one)

But then… I found a mod that I never dreamed existed. Something that actually had me put hard brakes on the female Dalish duelist I was planning on creating and actually reroll specs for a female Cousland ranger.

I found a mod that brings Ser Gilmore back to life and gives him back to you as a companion and love interest!

Ser Gilmore!

After the hellish couple of weeks I’ve been having with no light at the end of the tunnel in sight, THIS may prove to be as solid an escape as “The Last Remnant” I’ve been playing.

I have waited tables. I’ve worked in bars. You know who tips well? The working poor, the lower middle class, and people who work or have worked in service industries. You know who tips shitty or not at all? Rich people, upper middle class people, and privileged fuckers who use their “moral opposition” to tipping to be cheap assholes.

There is a DC rulebook based in the Mutants and Masterminds D&D system that, in addition to being just a general treasure trove, includes such things as:

  • All the fictional countries in the DCU
  • All the extraplanar realms in the DCU
  • A list of professional sports teams unique to…

Name of the book? Link? I know a few people who would enjoy this.

It’s the DC Adventures Universe book. Enjoy!

This youtuber explores abandoned mines. He states that the Horton mine located in Nevada was one of his creepiest experiences. As he ventures further down the tunnel he feels the presence of something negative & unwordly. He sees one of the chains swinging by itself. Just one chain, none of the others are moving. The chain’s movement is pretty irregular also. The moment he said he didn’t feel comfortable in there the chain started to be yanked slightly harder to the right as if indicating excitement. Most take this video as a legit paranormal file. (Video)

He did a follow-up a year later and swears he’ll never come back

Oh god… That second video in the post was so much creepier!

“There’s a second interesting tidbit in all that “lesbians are more likely to be fat” business. As it turns out, queer girls (lesbians AND bisexuals) are ALSO more likely to NOT THINK they’re fat, even when their BMI puts them in one of the “overweight” categories. On the flip side, straight girls are more likely to think of themselves as fat even when they’re not. That’s right, “overweight” queer ladies tend to be less critical of their bodies than straight women. Researchers want to call this a problem of self-perception, but I have a different theory. It could be, perhaps, that queer girl culture doesn’t suffer the incessant, unreasonable pressure of the male gaze in the same way that straight girl culture does. After all, if you don’t have to concern yourself with attracting men as romantic partners, it’s considerable more reasonable to not give a fuck about their photoshopped-magazine-and-mainstream-pornography-fueled beauty standards, and you might be less likely to internalize that garbage.”
