    Srsly, the Sunday slam is real. I had to tell students that 1) I refuse to look at drafts in progress by email anymore if directed questions aren't attached, and 2) any revision related questions must be asked before the last 48 hours before the deadline. Otherwise your weekends are shot. =((

    Hello, exchange rate. Please calm the hell down just a little bit more so that I can buy Lusternia things without feeling like I'm paying one and a half times more than I should be. Thanks.

    Tonight amidst the mountaintops
    And endless starless night
    Singing how the wind was lost
    Before an earthly flight

    Look, if you want me to help determine if you have a data error, don't start mucking around with the data while I am trying to determine what's wrong without telling me you're changing things.

    ugh, I know.

    Avurekhos says, "Dylara's a PvP menace in my eyes, totes rekting face."

    The eye of Dylara materialises in your hands and flings itself around your neck, tightening incomprehensibly until it is irremovable.
    Perfectly clean, this eyeball has been wrenched from the socket of Dylara. It has been animated by some unusual force, constantly looking around itself as if in shock or fear. It is bathed in a light covering of white flames that roll endlessly over its surface. A single chain of empyreal metal pierces either side of the eye, allowing it to be worn around the neck.

    Me: Hey boss, so my goals last month were just unrealistic. I've never not surpassed the profit expectations, but there was no way last month. The market challenges are X, Y, and Z and here are some examples. We are not competitive in these spaces.

    Boss: We hear you, and understand. We're looking into it.

    Boss next day: Lol JK we raised your goals again for March.

    To continue the saga of my boss's bosses being 馬鹿, 
    We still have a million things to do, and there's not a worklist one that doesn't have at least 100 orders waiting for someone to have the time to get to it. Their solution? Get everyone on the phones! No one is allowed to be off the phones for any reason whatsoever!!!

    Then once for christmas so I had stuffed penguins on my couch for a month. I'm very specific about my decor. I love modern, sleek, and simple. And I still allowed this "let it snow" monstrosity on my couch. Because I'm accomidating. 

    :)
    Excuse you, what is wrong with stuffed penguins? Hmph.

    It's that time of the year again. Hands are cracking up and I can do nothing besides putting on heaps of the most nourishing cream I can find and wearing cotton gloves 24/7 so I won't get everything greasy.

    A lot of folks at my pharmacy swear by Aquaphor. You still need the gloves, but it's not as expensive as some of the other brand name stuff.

    So. Not only do I suck at something I thought I was pretty good at, I really really suck at it. 

    Edit: deleted most of it because who the fuck cares anyway

    Thank you! I live right next to a pharmacy and will try to find it today.

    I woke up this morning to discover that my sinuses have declared war on me.
    Everiine is a man, and is very manly. This MAN before you is so manly you might as well just gender bend right now, cause he's the manliest man that you ever did see. His manly shape has spurned many women and girlyer men to boughs of fainting. He stands before you in a manly manerific typical man-like outfit which is covered in his manly motto: "I am a man!"

    Traded naproxen for ibuprofen. Really hoped it would help me be a moderately functional human. Naproxen is less effective than ibuprofen for me. Monday is doctor's appointment, but busy weekend. Also learned that obscene amounts of caffeine do not help chronic fatigue. Really wish this was just a vitamin deficiency like originally thought. Getting kitten tomorrow, going to have to juggle cat vs kitten jealousy and probably break up some fights. Sleep, all I want is sleep.

    So silly question:

    My roommate has bought a really beautiful wrap dress online, and the website selling it is doing so for half off. I'm kind of in love with it and want to buy it in another colour because 1) tax refund and 2) sale is limited time only. (!) However I would be a total copycat if I did so. Other roommate loves it too and is just looking for other wrap dresses to avoid being aforementioned copycat, but I looked and nothing seems as reasonably priced or suitable for my body type. :-<

    Do I just buy the same dress and not wear it around her, or buy it and damn the consequences, or stay away and save money like a good thrifty person? Maybe I just look for another type of clothing. Idk. :(

    Buy it. Don't wear it at the same time. Problem solved.

    If you like it, buy it. Enjoy it. If nobody could wear similar outfits, only the well-to-do would be able to afford clothes at all.

    Disclaimer: This is coming from a person who read your post about stunning your students with a new outfit and thinking to myself, "I never paid any attention at all to what any of my teachers ever wore... or how often they wore it".

    Thanks for the empowerment and validation, awesome Lusternia people. :x Time to make impulsive financial choices!

    (lol @Xenthos half of my students have been asleep or absent these days :( However I harbor weird anxious thoughts of totally just wearing the same three outfits on loop, when will they figure it out???)

    Sleeping or absent? Time to invest in an alarm clock. Put it on the desk right next to their ear. Maybe one of those ones that requires them to solve a math problem before it turns off, while everyone else gives them The Look.

    I generally utilize the side-eye and shame technique where I am like "Wait, is he asleep, guys?" and then we all collectively stare at the victim in question, someone pokes the kid, and then he shakes himself like "I'M AWAKE, I'M AWAKE" and I say, "Morning, sunshine, welcome to class."

    Whenever people come in late I do similar things. "Alexander, so good of you to grace us with your presence today. You're just in time for the second half of today's lesson plan."

    ...My sassiness actually came up on my most recent class observation. "Her pedagogy utilizes humor to keep class in order." I mean, hey, I'll take it. :-\"

    My first vacation in a year, and some jackass breaks into my truck the Sunday before I go on a road trip.

    I've straightened things out, and should be more available in the next week. As always, feel free to drop me a forum message or email for anything of urgency.

    It's so daunting,the thought of going back to college to finish my degree. Plus there are lots of stuff I need to get done first but I have very limited time. /headdesk
