Oh arena net... this isn't how colours work... I have noticed that there are dyes that are basically the same colour just with slight differences.

Abyss dye. Cost me 6 gold. I had to kill a LOT of newbies that wouldn't listen in dungeons. Be new! But follow some VERY simple and important instructions! Like "Don't go to the top of the stairs. You WILL die from a spike trap." I swear my entire party read "Go to the top of the stairs" and left it at that.

So that is my victory! That dye!

I used not-black dye on my Mesmer. I then enabled some graphic feature that adds realistic lightning on object and it suddenly went grey :P

I just downloaded the new ‘Kitty Norville’ book, and went and read it in the bath.

Bubble bath, natch.

Half way through I realised the water was getting cold, so I pulled the plug, and got out.

Washed the tub.

Ran a fresh bath full of hot water.

Got back in.

Finished the book.

Because that’s how I roll.

Today has to be one of the few days where I wake up and reality is better than my dreams.

I had a nightmare and was pleased to wake up at 7 AM, even though it was an hour earlier than I had to. I spent that hour smiling to myself about all the good things that have happened to me lately.

I fell in a river yesterday... and life was just so awesome it didn't even matter. I was soaked from the knees down but not even that could phase me. Everything is too fantabulous.

So damn happy.

New Kamelot album is AMAZING.

Tommy Karevik is way more suited to Kamelot than I expected after (Music hipster glasses on.) listening to him in Seventh wonder for years, I expected him to be too high energy for Kamelots somber darker tones. He pulls it off amazingly though.

Welp, got through that; slept the morning away, soup for lunch and napped most of the afternoon, then my sinuses cleared up as the sun set and I was able to get hot, solid food down. I should be fine tomorrow (well, probably feeling a little bleah, but easily able to work).

Nice touch was one of my co-workers called to check on me - if I wasn't able to work tomorrow, he was gonna take over my shift, so he game my his cell # to let him know if I couldn't make it, so he could come in on time. :)

Whilst drinking in the tubble-bath, I have found my crotch provides to be a good drink holding apparatus. Not sure if I should just enjoy, or patent.

Not sure how you could patent it, since 'prior art' exists with...everyone. ;)

But seriously, maybe work up a customized tumbler/glass for this purpose? Bears considering...

Ohhhh...that....she's....fuck, I'll just quote the source:


the Special Olympics Blog wrote:The following is a guest post in the form of an open letter from Special Olympics athlete and global messenger John Franklin Stephens to Ann Coulter after this tweet during last night’s Presidential debate.

Dear Ann Coulter,

Come on Ms. Coulter, you aren’t dumb and you aren’t shallow. So why are you continually using a word like the R-word as an insult?

I’m a 30 year old man with Down syndrome who has struggled with the public’s perception that an intellectual disability means that I am dumb and shallow. I am not either of those things, but I do process information more slowly than the rest of you. In fact it has taken me all day to figure out how to respond to your use of the R-word last night.

I thought first of asking whether you meant to describe the President as someone who was bullied as a child by people like you, but rose above it to find a way to succeed in life as many of my fellow Special Olympians have.

Then I wondered if you meant to describe him as someone who has to struggle to be thoughtful about everything he says, as everyone else races from one snarkey sound bite to the next.

Finally, I wondered if you meant to degrade him as someone who is likely to receive bad health care, live in low grade housing with very little income and still manages to see life as a wonderful gift.

Because, Ms. Coulter, that is who we are – and much, much more.

After I saw your tweet, I realized you just wanted to belittle the President by linking him to people like me. You assumed that people would understand and accept that being linked to someone like me is an insult and you assumed you could get away with it and still appear on TV.

I have to wonder if you considered other hateful words but recoiled from the backlash.

Well, Ms. Coulter, you, and society, need to learn that being compared to people like me should be considered a badge of honor.

No one overcomes more than we do and still loves life so much.

Come join us someday at Special Olympics. See if you can walk away with your heart unchanged.

A friend you haven’t made yet,
John Franklin Stephens
