Morning!

The gun shooting thing isn't happening today. It starts in about 5 minutes--I thought it was later in the day, and I still haven't shoveled out the driveway yet. Rah.

Do have to get it done at some point. Girlchild has a senior-thing all afternoon (she graduates college this spring). We got about 5" more last night. Rah.

Maybe I'll get some writing done. I finished the scene I was stuck on last night and finally get to hit my hero with how badly all his efforts from the first half of the book has totally failed. It should be fun.

slcboston
02-27-2010, 07:14 PM
Del, when you say you do have to get it done at some point - is that the driveway, or the shooting?

:D

DeleyanLee
02-27-2010, 07:42 PM
The driveway.

I'll have to find another opportunity for a gun lesson. I've never held one, let alone shot one, and I'm rather upset that this opportunity didn't pan out.

slcboston
02-27-2010, 07:46 PM
Oddly enough, on the list of things I've done, that's way down the list of things I'd find myself upset about had I missed the opportunity for it.

DeleyanLee
02-27-2010, 07:52 PM
Well, I tend to write scenes where guns go off, so the experience would be good. I've worked with swords (several lengths, sizes, grips--and own a few), knives, fought with staves, fired arrows (and hit the target!), etc. Guns are the only weapon I have never handled. The opportunity to handle and shoot one for free don't come along often, y'know?

slcboston
02-27-2010, 07:56 PM
Ah, I see.

It's research. :D

The first bang is always the loudest, but you do it often enough you get used to it. :guns:


And I've never used staves but I have thrown a tomahawk. Which was surprising more difficult than it looked to be at first glance.

DeleyanLee
02-27-2010, 08:05 PM
Heh. I can't think of throwing tomahakws without remembering Ed Ames' visit on Johnny Carson's Tonight Show, many many moons ago.

We had a B&W TV when I was a kid too. My mother's family was the first family in their town to even GET a TV, back in the day. Getting a color TV was a neighborhood event--bigger than having a baby.

Though I will admit, the Ed Ames bit--I learned about that from my dad. I wasn't a big Johnny Carson fan.

I write and then edit immediately. It's the only way I'll do the detail editing work. I've finished more than 20 novels that I've never edited 'cause I looked at all the errors, all the crap that needed to be done and opted to completely rewrite from scratch than rewrite.

Now I know that the scenes are doing the basic work when I finish a draft, I can look at the rest of the stuff and make adjustments, which is a lot easier and I can actually get done without freaking.

It's the only way I've found I can do it.

And I don't outline either, FWIW.

I'm not sure what time it's meant to be, but yeah it's a Chinese festival. Well. It seems to be a joint effort here between a few different cultures, but mostly Chinese. Maybe the time of year has something to do with the seasons here, or when it's a good time to close off that street, or a compromise between the different people involved.

At least, never twice.

I'm very intolerant of things that wake me in unhappy ways.


And it's funsville here in Snowville. The plow/salt truck tried to go up the alley (as in uphill) about 3' from the house--and slipped. The driver caught it about 1" from taking out our mailbox. Tried again, slipped again and obviously said "Screw this shite" and backed down to the street.

Too bad he didn't take out the mailbox. I've been trying to convince the landlady to move it since we moved in and she's been hesitant. That would've made it easier to convince her, y'know? And the city would've had to pay to replace it.

Sorry to hear about all the yucky white stuff. It's been pretty bad over here as well. It took me and my SIL almost an hour just to go out and get dinner last night because there were so many accidents and backups, and that's really saying something because this town isn't that big to be honest.

Okay, that answers that question. Del, if your mailbox does happen to get knocked down, a word of advice. Talk to your mail carrier before you move it. The Post Office literally has the final yea/nay on where the box is positioned--from safety to liability concerns and not necessarily where you might like it. Believe me, I work for the USPS. If you put it where they don't approve, they don't have to serve it. ;)

Rarely does government move itself to accommodate you, (as in you the public, in this case) it's always follow the rules. You ought to see the manuals. Jeeze, ridiculous!

DeleyanLee
02-28-2010, 09:23 PM
Yeah, I've already talked to the Postmaster for the city. They would LOVE to move it out of the unlit alley (and halfway up a steep hill) and to the front of the house next to where the carrier parks. We just have to let them know when it's being done.

The landlady is hesitant because it means digging postholes, filling postholes, expense and such niggly BS. Even when I'm willing to share costs, she's still dragging her feet.

My ex and I had some issues with receiving our mail when they were doing construction on our road a few years ago. The problem was that the whole road was tore up and we were told by the post office if we wanted our mail, we would have to either move the box to one of the intersecting roads past the construction, or just come and pick it up every day. At first we opted for moving the mailbox, but then we didn't get our mail because the driver wouldn't go to the spot it was at, which btw was exactly where the p.o. told us we should put it. So we move it to a different spot past the construction, still we get nothing. We ended up having to go into town every day for six months to get our mail because our driver eventually refused to even deliver it anymore. :Wha:

Hint to her the possible repercussions of something happening to the mail carrier while delivering to that mailbox. You really don't have to stretch the truth, much.

"Have you ever considered what might happen if blah, blah, blah?"

With this nasty winter in mind, it wouldn't take much to get the old imagination going and the landlady nervous and motivated. Not that something would actually happen to the landlady, since the box is already being served where it's at...but you don't have to mention that fact. :D

"Gee, I'd hate to have that worry hanging over my head. You know, when it thaws out it wouldn't take that much time or money for some peace of mind."

The carrier should have been reprimanded and/or fired. You put it where you were told. He/she didn't do their job. End of story.

Don't put up with that kind of crap. There are some lousy, lazy people out there that won't bother to lift a finger and do any more than they have to. Sounds like the Postmaster didn't have control and the inmates were running the asylum.

Next time, ask for the name of the Postmaster's boss and an address. They won't give you the phone number, but I bet you could write a polite letter wondering why you can't get the service you are entitled to after following instructions. (hopefully, there won't be a next time, but you never know) More than likely the very idea that you might write to the boss will solve the problem. :D

Postal trivia: Postmaster's boss...acronym for their job title is MPOO. Never has there been a more fitting name. Manager Post Office Operations.

Yeah, I wasn't happy that she didn't even get reprimanded as far as I know. My ex and I went down there one day to grab the mail and talked to the Post Master about the situation, he just acted like there was nothing he could do and sent us on our merry way.

It irritated me more because that town is so freakin small, and I mean not even one stoplight to be found kind of small, and still they wouldn't at least work with us to help us get our mail. It was suddenly our responsibility to make sure we could pick it up every day. Before we left the p.o. that time we spoke with the pm, I, in my fit of anger and annoyance, asked the wank if he was going to pay me for doing his employees job. :D

Must be a short-timer. There are an awful lot of Postal Workers just hanging in there long enough to retire. They either don't care or don't want to stir up any trouble before they sign the retirement papers. Moral is horrible across the board. I keep my head down and just go out and try to do the best I can every day. I'm a Rural Carrier but I have filled in for Postmaster's from time to time.

I guess I can say I see it from both sides of the desk. :D

Oh, and Sneaks?

You missed a comma before the final "too".

:DFigures the grammar/punctuation nazi would spot that. :ROFL:

Ah well, something was bound to slip through the cracks. At least I didn't forget words. :D


:Wha: Obviously the content of the message (may it remain forever secret, really...keep it on the down low) may have something to do with the surprise factor.
I swear on my honor as a perv, it was, for once, a clean message. :roll:

I'll vouch for that. It was entirely free of innuendo.

Actually, come to think of it.... it required patience, concentration, probably some planning, and had absolutely no hidden meaning to it at all.

.... Who did you get to do it for you, Sneaks? C'mon, you can tell us.

I know, I know. It's something so very unSneaks-like, isn't it? But I assure you, that bit of nonsense and annoyance was all me. :D (Which really shouldn't be surprising considering how high the annoying part is.) :D

There are very few things in life I dedicate that much attention to. ;)

Ah. Of course. When you put it like that how could I have ever had any doubts?

Morning Kit. Why tiring?

My weekend was pretty awesome. My SO, who does most of the cooking went crazy Saturday when my friend and her hubby came over for dinner. Steaks and lobster, he bought hummus and veggies and brie and crackers. I made a great salad, he bought me a case of wine, sauteed mushrooms...delicious! Then we played some card games and drank a lot and did nothing of significance at all yesterday.

Sounds like a good time, Alpha, but I gotta ask--who got stuck with all the dishes?

Tiring 'cause the party Saturday night lasted 'til about 3am for me... a few 'we gotta go for drinks' invites; one of which I may honour this weekend ;)

Apparently, I have to have another jelly shot party. Or bring jello shots next time I see them. For my b'day last year, I made a huge batch and a couple of us (well, they did - I drank myself straight) got rather tanked on them :D

After all that excessive info, Sunday was good... didn't do much of anything except try and catch up on more sleep :D

hmmm... yes and no...

Without getting into too much detail, a few things were said/ done that leads a body to more questions than answers.

It was a good night for the most part...was good to catch up with some people I haven't seen in awhile :)

I gotcha. I hate that. Leaves you more confused and just...hanging. I'm sorry. But glad you were able to catch up with some people!

yeh... some people just suck...

and others... yeh... :roll:

Alpha Echo
03-01-2010, 06:10 PM
Most people suck, IMO.

Which is why my SO are perfect for each other - we wanna be together. He doesn't even want a boys' night cuz he wants me along.

But we both really don't like going out much. LOL. We each have a couple close friends and love to have them over, but...most people...suck.

I think that's why I love "meeting" people online. They suck a lot less.

Kitty
03-01-2010, 06:13 PM
gotta admit, that is one good thing about meetin' people here...

First, the variety. It's like lucky dip and that's always exciting 'cause you never know whatcha gonna get :D

Second... if someone really annoys you, you can slap the ignore button :roll:

Alpha Echo
03-01-2010, 06:19 PM
Haha, exactly.

DeleyanLee
03-01-2010, 06:21 PM
I don't think I've ever used the ignore button. Hmmmm. I must have a higher tolerance for suckatude.

I really don't want to be at work today. Already had two fires to put out. Rah.

Kitty
03-01-2010, 06:23 PM
Do you want some of our rain?

We got lots :D



and lots ....



and....


yeh

DeleyanLee
03-01-2010, 06:26 PM
Ah--no. Thanks, though.

With all the snow we still have on the ground (about a foot), rain would cause nasty flooding--which still wouldn't stop me from having to come to work.

Alpha Echo
03-01-2010, 06:28 PM
Haha. I don't really use ignore either, Del, but it's good to know it's there. No one really bothers me online. If they do...I ignore them (w/o the button)

It's only people in real life. I wonder why that is.

Kitty
03-01-2010, 06:28 PM
ewwww.... slush...


Wish I could help ya' there Del :Hug2:

Guys...


I think it's easier online to be honest, if that makes sense (also dishonest but we're all adults here :) )

Screw the PC crap and just tell it how it is...

The worst that'll happen is someone will tell you, they don't like you :roll:

I have opted to sum up my weekend weather with the following:

slcboston
03-01-2010, 06:33 PM
Oh, I've ignored people (anyone really shocked by that?) :D

Sometimes it's either that or going completely thermonuclear on them, and really, ignoring is often easier.

:flamethrower

Less fun, sometimes, but easier.

Good point. Very good point. I think sometimes, I'm too honest on here. :D

Morning boston.

I'm generally honest in RL as well as here, if I say anything at all. Lying is too much work. And I'd rather have someone be honest in the first place 'cause I hate game playing.

Alpha Echo
03-01-2010, 06:46 PM
Yeah, I'm honest in life too, most of the time. But it's different online. I think I offer more information to people I've never met (some of you here...ahem...) than I would in real life. In real life, I have 2 girlfriends that no everything about me, and my SO who I tell absolutely everything to. That's it.

Kitty
03-01-2010, 07:07 PM
hmmm... I think I have one friend who I confide most things to in RL... but that gets a tad tenuous at times...and one web side who probably knows more about me than I do :roll:


Other than that... yeh... not so much


Honesty isn't always a person's best friend ;)

Alpha Echo
03-01-2010, 07:12 PM
That is true. lol

slcboston

I tend to be brutally honest when dealing with people. One, I have almost no sense of tact. Two, I have very little patience. And most importantly, I have zero tolerance for the general stupidity of humanity.

Which is why I no longer work in sales.

:D

DeleyanLee
03-01-2010, 07:21 PM
What he said.

Which is why I never went to work in sales.

Perhaps it's scarier that I work in health care.

I'm not that upfront about stuff. I hate confrontation.
