So today was my first time seeing a Microsoft Store and an Apple Store. The Microsoft Store was small with a few people in there. The Google store was about three times as large, five times as busy, and had a giant Apple logo on the wall almost like they are worshiping it like the Cross.

I know the common belief is that Microsoft is evil, but I don’t think we’ve taken a good look at Apple.

Also, I was at the Microsoft Store because I found a Surface in my parent’s garage, but it wouldn’t update even when I restored it to factory settings. Hell of a job, Microsoft. Piece of shit straight outta the box!

Boardgames and beer. Because attending a conversation on comic book feminism wasn’t exciting enough. What a Saturday.

I’m a lazy, lazy man. However, even I have my principles. There are so many shitty gifs where someone couldn’t be bothered to separate multiple cuts. I wish I could make money editing and curating pictures and video of hot women. Anyway, I’m off for the evening.

As a fan of Barbara Gordon, Cassandra Cain and Stephanie Brown, I can say with 147% certainty that there are feminism issues in Comic Books.

I just remembered I have a story about acquiring laundry quarters.
My old town of San Pedro is a little sketchy in some places. When I first started doing my morning walk I was going through a prolonged bout of insomnia. I would wake up at 3 or 4 in the morning and could NOT go back to sleep so I would get up put on my walking gear and walk to the harbor and back.

One early Sunday morning I woke up abruptly, decided to walk and remembered there was a car wash where I could use a change machine to get quarters and it was kind of on the way. I exit the back door of my apartment complex head down an alley for a couple of blocks before hitting a main road then at the end of the alley I saw some yellow tape. I lift up the tape and stepped directly into…

A double homicide scene. The bodies weren’t even covered yet since the coroner hadn’t arrived. The cops were setting out flares.

One cop just stares at me and asked “What the fuck are you doing?”

I’m obviously pretty fucking still asleep and harmless looking and I said “Taking my morning walk?”

He just told me to get the fuck out of there before they arrested me.

I complied.

It was later that I realized it was probably the gun shots or the sirens that woke me up.

Don’t step under police tape kids.

Hmmm. So a middle aged gentleman wandering around in the middle of the night with rolls of quarters? Just happens to stumble onto crime scenes?

I haven’t tested it, but I’d bet you can get a fairly precise measure of the ambient air temperature by measuring how low my balls are hanging.

While I am have been on a 2 day rant, do you know what else can fuck off? Aperol Spritz. It is drink of the summer apparently. If you like raging hangovers it sure is, sugar booze mixed with cheap prosecco. Good times.

I just finished a mud run in Camp Pendleton and I’ve got a 2 hour drive ahead of me. I’m going to eat the shit out of some In-N-Out when I get home.

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

Dude, drive 20 minutes south and come and get a beer AND In-N-Out with me.

...

Last time I was in an In-N-Out I ordered a “drouble drouble” because I was pretty shitfaced.

ballsofsteelandfury

I’d love to, but I’ve got family commitments, so I gotta get back. Otherwise, I would have given you a call.

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

Damn families, screwing up drankin’.

Local version of Hooters; Twin Peaks Restaurant.

...

At my last job, one of the few bars with a decent beer selection was a Tilted Kilt. Predictably, the clientele was 95% middle-aged dudes. Surprisingly, gawking was at a minimum although perhaps I was just not catching it.

Yes, been there; I try to be at least a little subtle and overly polite. Last time I was in there our waitress seemed to take that as a challenge. That was nice, I tend to prefer the breweries though; more of a clientele mix.

...

Ha. I actually found the service I received to be very good. I found better beer places in the area so I stopped going. Plus, the food was expensive and bleh.

A breweries and a food truck is hard to beat. The other thing is that more women are going to breweries.

...

I’d say the gender split is pretty close to even in nearly all of the breweries I go to and that remains true even if they’re just taprooms and not restaurants.

As long as you don’t hear “Make me something good.” I approve.

OK, it’s a beautiful Colorado day; it was 93, but the breeze takes the edge off, so it is comfortable. Especially so for the woman in the Ace Hardware store with the wraparound dress, with, I’m guess no undies. Rather than being the creepy old guy outside, I’ll be a creepy old guy on this thread.

Had a nice workout at the gym today, finished a load of laundry and now I’m planning the least productive rest of the day possible.

Forward.
Drink!

...

This reminds me that I will soon have an in-unit washer-dryer again. 😀

I love the hell out of my stacked washer and dryer.
True story, I still hoard my quarters even though I have my own washer and dryer.

Are there no meters in your life?

Meters in Chicago take credit cards, which is necessary considering how many goddamned coins you’d need to pay for an hour.

Mrs Cola uses ours every day. HOWEVAH! I am a dishwasher guy forever. Best appliance.

laserguru

I have a perfectly functional dishwasher and I’ve used it exactly once.
Old school hand wash.

...

I’ll have one of those again too, but I’ll probably still hand wash about half my stuff out of habit. I’ll even have a double-basin sink to make it easier!

...

That’s a habit I’ll have to break, although I’ve taken it one step further.

My office cafe only accepts cash for outside payment, so I end up with a lot of change. But there’s a vending machine in the building that makes change by returning the highest denominations possible, even dollar coins. So I’d set aside all my dimes and nickles until I had enough to return quarters which I could use for laundry. I’m sure people wondered why the fuck I was visiting the vending machine so often without buying anything, but a man needs his quarters.

A most delightful serial murder song. Good for having relations to as well, which is a rare combo.

Pouring rain 10 degrees c, no rugby for Litre. Having some day wine and day weed. Havent slept since yesterday. Maybe Romanian literature is the trick to get decilitre to sleep.

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

I’m jealous of your day weed, as I just quit for a month. I had a second interview with a great company on Thursday and can’t risk it fucking up my chance, which is ridiculous cause this is supposed to be legal here now.

litre_cola

I wonder how that is going to play here next year when it is legalized. I onow that consttuction and oil companies are random testing.

...

Almost always bullshit to test for drugs for job interviews, if you ask me.

Don T

I dodged (twice!) the only drug test I’ve been required. And recorded secretly the interview to explain why I evaded it the first time.

Even though it’s 87 outside, somehow–miraculously, it’s only 77 in my apartment so I’m quite happy.

I want “Hillary Clinton had house slaves” to be the new “The Warriors blew a 3-1 lead” as the new mic drop in 2017… Unless the Warriors blow a 3-0 lead.

I’ve wanted the 3-0 blown lead so, so very bad.

And yet, in the recommended videos that show up after that one there is another simpsons clip of basically the same scene but it’s actually Batman.
