    I didn't even know you tipped barbers until last year

    I am 30 years old

    Did you like, roll up to your barber with a wad of cash like 'I AM SO SORRY'

    Tip for literally everything you possibly can

    That's been my guiding principle, it works pretty well

    I don't tip at fast food places

    Mostly because I don't know how like, mcdonalds deals with/divides tip and it makes me super nervous

    They frequently won't accept tips

    So they're not a place in which you possibly can, and are safe

    I mean also I don't eat fast food so I literally didn't consider that as an option

    It was only like 20 bucks but yes

    Also rather than roll up to it was surrupticiously half hide under a magazine on their counter while they were away for a sec because I'm a coward

    For me I am in hour 4 of 7 hours of conference calls

    This means I have mostly been browsing house listings

    Did you guys know there are like, hells of a lot of houses?

    Like for real a bunch

    Yuuup, this is especially true in my area

    Not the most opportune time for us to be selling... but it'll be nice to have so many options once we do

    If it makes you feel better, the like, 10 I Favorited two weeks ago are literally all already under contract

    Ya we may just need to lower our price a little bit again, but it sounds like we're going to try a realtor incentive first.

    It's not so bad. We're very fortunate to not actually be in any major rush.

    When we were in our late teens early 20s we sometimes got our hair cut by a lady who worked at a local like caberat type club, as she was working through beauty school or whatever.

    That was weird because we would actually be in the back of said club during daytime hours.

    I forgot to pack a lunch this morning and was dreading having to go out for lunch. Turns out I forgot we were doing a hunter's potluck today, so I just gorged myself on deer brats and pheasant. Today is good. Feel a little guilty about not bringing anything, but there was way too much food as it was.

    I need to get back to shaving my own head.

    I pay 10 bucks to for about 5 minutes of work.

    Though I also tip 2 bucks cause the mexican ladies who do it are always super nice.

    I typically don't even shave it with a blade I'll just use my trimmer to take my head down to stubble.

    It's still way better looking than letting my hair grown out.

    I went out jogging today, lasted about 10 minutes before I got super tired then just walked home the rest of the way, I was out for about 30 minutes. It was my first exercise in about a year I guess, not counting all the walking I did at Disney World. I'll keep doing it though, because a friend of mine is even worse shape and has the same lack of motivation that I do, and maybe my starting to do it and talking about it will be the tiny little push he needs to do something.

    How is Munchkin Legends?

    NO CHINCY NO

    Munchkin is fun as long as you have the appropriate sense of humor about it. It is basically a funny joke game. If you want serious strategy, and being rewarded for it, that isn't the game.

    and I wonder about my neighbors even though I don't have them
    but they're listening to every word I say

    the #1 rule to playing munchkin is to understand that you're gonna get fucked up by either a) the game or coolsmiley) your buddy

    you can't be salty when you're playing munchkin or you're gonna ruin it for everyone. If you don't get salty its a wonderfully fun game!

    munchkin is sort of fun if you play it once a year

    a game that has no real game to it is not a good game; see Monopoly

    Awesome, way to start! Back when I was jogging I started with a program like this and it worked amazingly well; basically you alternate running and walking for about a minute or less at a time:

    Of course now I can't even run across the street anymore and probably never will again.

    About to go memorize my organic chem reagents

    Being a field biologist in a chem class is suffering (but this summer lecture is much better than my last time through holy shit)

    We used to play, and I think it might have been the original rules, that when you died your level reset to 1. So we would play for like... 9 hours, and watch TV and chat the whole time. I liked it better that way.

    People who are playing Munchkin to win are fundamentally misunderstanding the purpose of Munchkin. The game is literally a joke at their expense.

    I've gone both ways on that

    It generally honestly depends on how easy it is for me to do so

    Like, if you have a tip jar when I'm paying cash, there is an absolute guarantee my change is going in there, plus a dollar if it feels right

    If I pay card and there's like, an on-screen tip functionality (or I guess a tip line on the receipt, but I feel like I never sign receipts anywhere anymore), then yeah, I'll probably put in a dollar or so

    But I'm also not gonna go out of my way to find a way to tip someone unless they like, super deserve it

    Also for take out a good rule of thumb for tipping is dollar per entree

    So you got three plates of food? 3 bucks

    It's pretty easy that way
