    The dog is very clingy to my mother and I. We're having trouble getting him to chill out a bit and just lay down. Meanwhile the cat is getting bolder about moving near the dog, but every time she gets close to him she swats him. Got him on the snout once already. Poor dog doesn't know how to react except to try and hide behind a human.

    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.

    I watched our CEO rip a salesguy a new one for using comic sans. Told him how unprofessional it was. That moment gives me the warm fuzzies when I think about it.

    Cat's establishing dominance, my kitty did that to the corgi, eventually once the cat feels shes in the power position she'll soften up.

    SUPER before, VideoPad Video Editor now.

    Edit: And VPVE isn't even a conversion program! I just imported the mp4, combined all the clips into one video, and told it to save as a wmv, and voila!

    What is a good menu to bring with for a picnic? (There will only be one other person at this particular picnic. :winky: )
    So far I'm thinking:
    • Red Wine + cups
    • "Fancy" bread (focaccia?)
    • "Fancy" cheese (and also fresh mozzarella)
    • Salami/Prosciutto
    • Stuffed olives
    • Wheat Thins
    • Strawberries
    • and maybe some mixed nuts but I'm thinking to nix that.

    She said she'll bake something to bring along so I figure no 'dessert' item as that would be kind of a slap in the face. What should be added/changed?

    I'd drop the nuts. Too salty with the meats and olives.
    Too...much...innuendo...must...resist...

    I was also maybe thinking of banana pudding. Would that be a good idea? Creamy banana pudding squirting onto those berries?

    Also, the fancy bread may or may not be coming from your bakery via that Pastoral in the loop. (I may just grab it at the Jewel before I come into class in the morning so I have everything.) Any suggestions?
    I'd say just a straight baguette honestly, very classic French lunch with wine, meat and cheese. If you wanted to be a little fancier, get one of the grain rings, if they sell them whole at Pastoral.

    I was thinking of going a bit more Mediterranean, but I suppose French could be okay as well. Hmm.

    It's too bad they don't show their products online like Fox & Obel, but apparently they actually have picnic baskets you can order. Not that I'd want to spend ~$40 on it and it'd probably be too much stuff but now I have a comparison point I suppose.
    They'll have plain and sourdough baguettes, a mixed fruit and nut loaf, the grain ring, their "peasant" bread which is basically just a round white loaf, the Miche bread which is a wheat sourdough, plain ciabatta, plain sourdough and a raisin fennel bread.

    from what I understand, new mechanics have been added to make tanking more active, and the removal of the defense stat may have messed up the gear people have been building for a year

    I imagine some tanks aren't happy with this

    is it bad if i decide i am tired of trying to be a friend to someone who is just super flakey and will be excited about doing things sometimes, and flake out 75% of the time, or just be hard to get in contact with
    half the time the friend will be the one to bring up the plan and flake out

    i give up on them

    i am tired of being their friend anymore even tho i enjoy persons company and we get along well the few times we can actually meet up

    i am lazy but can you be friends with someone you only see like once every 2 months really

    DPS players especially casters got a massive increase, threat and tank dps in tank gear saw a decrease. People refuse to adjust to using dps pieces to up a threat threshold instead call the whole system broken.
