    They grow up so fast:

    Leo flipped his little doggy bed over tonight and started dry humping it. I guess it's time to make the very special vet appointment.

    Expressing the glands?

    I'm guessing they taste as revolting as the other vodka infused foodstuffs I've tried.

    If you want to get drunk on vodka you should drink it. If you're a pussy, you can mix it with any number of juices and soft drinks to get it to the point where it's potable even to the very timid.

    What you can't do is pump it into food and expect the food to not taste like it's been basted in paint thinner.

    Is Vari around?

    Or any of the other Chaos in the Old World players?

    Tarr is here and excited about Chaos because I spent all day talking about it but we can't play with two people so we should try to play on VASSAL if we can get 4 people together.

    I'm always surprised by the popularity of that game in CF

    The whole idea of there being a waiting list is kind of baffling

    That said, I'm fairly sure all the IRS wants you to do is report the income and pay tax on it. There may be some tax breaks involved because its a small business, but if you're just operating as an employee or consultant then it should be just like handling your tax burden for those (I think consulting might be a different form, but don't quote me on that). Best bet is to contact a professional though.

    Employee wages are usually reported on a W2, and the employer has a responsibility to pay payroll tax, social security & medicare tax, as well as withhold some taxes from your paycheck.

    Consulting income is usually reported on a 1099, and the employer is not responsible for any of the above - but you are. This means that your tax burden on 1099 income is usually much higher than on W2 income.

    Chu, if you are not investing any money into the business, and you're just expecting a small amount of compensation (under $800) at some point for general consulting, then you don't even have to declare that as income. Over $800, you'll probably end up declaring it on a 1099 form. At that point, you can look at how much money you're making and whether it's worth talking to a tax preparer.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    chu if you're just going to be an employee and your name isn't on any of like, the loan forms or liens then I think you can literally just fill out the short form come next april. I don't think it's any more complicated than that.

    and we just agree on any wage we want? or i guess 'getting me off the ground with this business' is kind of an intangible thing. i dunno. i've certainly never done anything like consulting before.

    Well, it only supports 4 players, and running one is kind of a pain, so there's that.

    But yeah, we have, I think, 4 or 5 people actively hosting Chaos games right now, and there's still a waiting list (although a good number of the people on that waiting list are actually in games).

    isn't there like, a doggy brothel you can take him

    like a dude getting his one taste before he ships off to the monastery

    That's part of the reason we've waited this long. Our vet said he believes in spaying/neutering no earlier than 6 months old (while most vets will do it much earlier than that).

    But we can't let it go for too long because the last thing we want is puppy incest in the house. Thankfully Phoebe just assumed the shenanigans with Leo trying to screw his bed were a game of some sort.

    It wasn't available at my usual online board game store, though, which was a shame

    I'm not sure when I'd ever get the chance to play it, either

    Jello is barely a solid food (gummi bears are chewy, jello is not).

    And I've never had a jello shot that was half as good as a decent cocktail.

    I think I've heard good things about that game.

    Sadly, with board games I can't necessarily blow some money on it and play it. I have to 1) find it, and 2) find people to play with it.

    If I get the chance, though, I'll check it out.

    it's...hmm, how do I put this? You're keeping track of a lot of things but none of the individual mechanics are particularly complicated at all. So the hard part is telling everybody what everything is the first time, but then once you actually sit down it all goes by pretty smoothly. The core mechanic is simplicity itself: there are these little chits on the board (representing evidence), and you want to get your little dude to them first and pick them up before anyone else does. Someone who understands nothing else about the game will still do okay if they just do that.

    Ok.

    If you were slightly drunk, and I were slightly drunk, and we didn't have the instruction manual, would you be able to teach me to play over a single game?

    yes, absolutely

    the bulk of the game's instructions are on the various cards you draw. they will say things like "when Feral's character enters a bar, this happens"

    one of my favorite things about android:

    each detective has a hovercar that they get around the city in

    different detectives have cars that go different speeds

    you determine if you can get somewhere in one move by using these compasses:

    if you put one end on your starting point and your destination is inside the arch, you can go there!

    Card explanations with people that are fussy can be the worst. It's like, let's just play and if a card comes up I'll explain it. And that person is like "no then you will have an advantage".
