A Friendly Chat
« on: March 23, 2012, 05:59:56 PM »
So in response to this thread, since those who replied are in favor of the thread, and nobody has made it yet, I thought I'd go ahead and make it happen.  This thread has no official topic, just with the intent of being somewhere for everyone here to talk about random things that don't quite merit their own topic, but may be interesting enough to share.  You may certainly talk about personal issues here, but let's try to keep it from being the LiveJournal thread.  Also the thread title is subject to chance since this is the only thing I could think of (although I considered "The Friends Zone" which was mildly amusing but may give the wrong impression to newcomers as to what the thread's about)



Myself, I've been off of my full time job on medical leave, due to some unexplained pain in my foot for the last month and a half.  Turns out, as I found out today at the podiatrist, I have a bunch of tiny stress fractures in the bones connecting my 2nd and 3rd toes ("index" and middle toes) on my left foot, she said most likely due to the fact that I have zero arch and an unusual amount of the load of my weight gets transferred to the wrong parts of my feet when I walk.  She wants me to stay off it for at least the next three months, which totally blows because I'm getting sick of sitting at home like a neckbeard playing vidyagames all day (which I would never have imagined I would say that.)

On the bright side, she's submitting me for disability so at least I shouldn't have to worry about my bills now.  I've managed to barely scrape by with my part-time, side job, but it wouldn't sustain me forever at this rate.

So there that is.  Anything interesting going on with any of you?

Recently I've managed to motivate myself to start working out and doing cardio again. In addition, I've been trying to break the habit of sleeping late; however, I still find myself staying up later than I should from time to time.

I'm sorry to hear that, Nomad. I hope you'll get better soon.

I became addicted to frappuccinos while I was working at my last/current-on-hiatus/whatever full-time job.  I recommend trying out the café vanilla frappuccinos; though if someone who doesn't know what they're doing makes it it won't be all that great, but a good one is amazing.

I have started my garden recently. Peas (zippers), cranberry beans, okra, and tomatoes are coming along nicely. I hope to have a freezer full of veggies by the end of summer. I still need to get the squash and cucumbers planted. I think I'll add another row of tomatoes as well.
I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

This actually occurred to me last night after I shut my computer off.  It is true that we already have a stickied casual conversation thread.  Of course, that one's for if you want to have a casual conversation with Gayer.

I haven't seen one by that name, I do get a vanilla bean frappuccino. Similar/same thing?

Should I make a thread about what people did today as well and insist it is also a sticky? Why don't we just sticky all the threads? Can we do that? Someone task Tausami with this project.

This is not sticky material. If people like the thread it will stay near the top. If its crap, it will sink into oblivion until Saddam periodically dives into the forum and swims back up to the surface with this turd in between his teeth. It doesn't need to be stickied.

*On topic. Today I was pissed off at all the unimportant stickies I found on FES.

Same thing, only vanilla bean has no coffee in it.  That one's more or less just a vanilla smoothie.

Seriously, who cares? Why does everyone have to be so argumentative about such petty issues? I mean, I know, "Welcome to FES" etc, but jeez, chill out.


Anyway, I have tonnes of work to do, and I'm doing almost none of it. Next week I will probably have to vanish from here in a blaze of compensation and catching-up, and it's going to be horrible and awful and I'm going to be shattered at the end of it. Totally my fault though.

I order mine with coffee in it anyway. Sometimes they charge me an extra .50 cents, sometimes they don't. Very legit.

That's Starbucks for you.  On the bright side, usually if they see you frequently they'll not charge you the extra, unless it's some noob.  I was going into the one by my work so often that on a couple occasions I ended up with a size bigger than I ordered or with a sandwich that someone either forgot or wasn't what they ordered.  Starbucks as a whole may be a soulless corporate black hole, but the employees can be pretty cool bros sometimes.

I was aware there was one in Complete Nonsense, but I'd you read my post the point was to have a Convo thread out of it because the crap Complete Nonsense is filled with. Not everyone wants to venture down there often, especially for actual conversation. I'd like conversations in a thread that doesn't have the likely chance of being insane and filled with racism and swearing.

Anyways, yay, my idea (or at least a version of it) was implemented. I have made a (even if temporary) mark on this forum! >:]

Now, I'm in Florida for a week. It's nice so far, much warmer. :D
