    Reading back through this thread has helped me cope with the ridiculous tooth pain I can't get rid of and the fact I've got a massive dentist bill coming up.

    Thank you everyone!

    Thank you so much, mysterious man named John. I am one step closer to showing up at this week's FNM and throwing down like a BAWSS

    wow I'm a little floored by all this. it's wonderful, and has thoroughly brightened my mood today after an incredibly shitty past few weeks.

    Good news and bad news

    Good news is that I got some deck protectors from John! The are cool looking Max Diamond protectors.

    Bad news: I need to get some dental work and I had been waiting until the start of the year to do it to have access to more funds for coverage. Well, I found out today that it was canceled/not renewed on November 31st. In other words, because my identity got stolen and was using my old personal information, I don’t currently have dental insurance and have to pay out of pocket. And have to being operative here, I have waited long enough.

    Oh and some ’good news’! I got some provisionary papers from my bank that say which of the charges I disputed and put that money back into my account. Huzza

    Thank you Andrew W. for the second bundle of gifts!

    -- Batman Beyond: the Complete Series

    -- The National's Boxer album.

    And two gifts that really excited me.

    -- The Chinese Maze Murders; a Judge Dee Mystery by Robert Van Gulik

    -- SPQR The King's Gambit by John Maddox Roberts

    Murder mysteries set in ancient China & ancient Rome!?!?! YESSS!!!

    Thanks!!!

    So the original package had a bit of an explanation, which I'll reproduce here.

    The two books are the first in their respective series, which I highly recommend.

    Di Renjie was a historical person, and the van Gulik books expand on his real (though almost certainly exaggerated) exploits as a district magistrate in Tang dynasty China. The character Judge Dee is fastidious, a strict Confucian, and comically obsessed with a good cup of tea. He's also an excellent investigator and a fair judge according to the laws of China in his day. Owing to the fact the books are written by a Dutch man around the 1940's-60's, there's a heavy dose of classism and some degree of sexism present in the novels. Still fun reads, and solid mysteries.

    The SPQR series is set in Rome during the late Roman Republic and follows a Senator and several of his slaves and friends as they solve crimes and sometimes interact with larger political rumblings.

    Purity Ring is one of my favorite recent bands, in a genre I like to call Electropop Nonsense. It's noisy, the beats and synths dominate, and just on the edge of your hearing is the vocalist's ethereal voice singing vaguely body horror lyrics. It's great.

    The National is far more accessible and solidly in the indie rock category. Singer Matt Berninger famously is not classically trained and as a result often lends a slightly off-beat delivery of his lyrics. It shouldn't work, but it does. The rest of the band is formed by two pairs of twin brothers!

    And Batman Beyond is Batman Beyond.

    One last mission of anyone is interested!

    My kids are doing a glow run to raise money for their school.

    It's TOMORROW and they have $0 in pledges.

    My wife and I are obviously going to pledge but if anyone wants to be awesome and help them out I would love you forever!

    I thought about putting some encouraging words in there but my hatred of running laps kept flowing out. So I settled for silent encouragement.

    EDIT:
    I’m also stupid and put the wrong selection the first time so I had to submit two separate ones. Just pretend one is me and the other one is future me traveling back in time to pledge as present me.
