Today when I stopped in to McDonalds was... highly amusing to say the least.
First person who sees me is the shift manager.
SM: "Hey! How you doing today?"
She walks over the the visibly nervous First Day New Guy.
SM: "This guy always gets a double quarter meal, with a Fruitopia. Unless he's in a hurry, then he gets 20 nuggets."
FDNG: *blank expression*
Me: "Quarter today."
SM goes to fill my drink.
Grill Girl in back pops her head out.
GG: "Hi! Quarter or nuggets?"
FDNG has apparently not heard ANYTHING we told him...
I give him the whole order. He bobbles punching in EVERY step, calls over SM for help.
My entire meal is served before he even finishes punching it in.
Meanwhile, Shift Lead pops over. She banks with Vancity, and has been jealous of how early I got my chip card.
SL: "I finally got my chip card yesterday!"
Yeah... I'm kind of well known there...

|The Sandwich Nazi
Look at your sandwich. Now look at mine. Now back to yours, and back to mine.
Sadly, your puny wimpy sandwich isn't mine.
I get my sandwiches from The Sandwich Nazi, at http://www.thebestdeli.com/
If you're in Vancouver, it's worth going.
My sandwich cost me seven dollars. And look what I got:( Read more...Collapse )
My sandwich is the sandwich that your sandvich wishes it could be.

|A Visit From The Other MIBs
The Men In Blue, that is.
Just had the friendly neighbourhood police come and pay me a visit.
Apparently, I somehow managed to pocket dial 911. It doesn't show in the call log on my cell phone, but the cops said that's not unusual.
I was confused because I got a call from "Unknown Number" about 10 minutes before. As it was unknown, I didn't answer it. Pay As You Go minutes are EXPENSIVE.
Turns out that was 911 calling me back to confirm. Since there was no answer, a patrol was dispatched.
They were quite friendly. They checked my ID to make sure I was the person the phone belonged to, and took a poke around the house just to make sure there weren't any dead bodies.
Interestingly enough, if I had been hiding a dead body, they wouldn't have found it. It was a VERY cursory look, didn't even step into the bedrooms to look around the corners.
Then they thanked me for my time and went along their way.
Why yes, this is the most interesting thing to happen to me in well over a year. Not even going to conventions is this interesting :)
To round this out: Picture is Unrelated (but awesome)

|Overheard in the Car
Chris: Why are sandwiches called that?
Alli: Why are you called Christopher? It's just a name, it doesn't matter
Me: They were named after a place called Sandwich, which was just a name for a place
Alli: I'm sure people put meat inside of bread before that place was around
Chris: Oh, ok.
Matthew: I like witches!

|Hey, you never flashed me with that thing, did you?
So I actually have some *gasp* news to report. As you all know, not much goes on in my life, so I never post. Well, something's happened now.
As of about a week ago, I am oficially one of the Men in Black.
I'm the only one in BC... aparently they've been MIB-less for years. But I was recruited at Vcon and now I'm all official and such.
Yes, the primary job description is "Go to stores and show people how to play Munchkin". And those of you who know me are going "Yeah, like that's a burden."
Pursuant to this, I am now an official Event Co-ordinator at GottaCon 2010.
Which means I'm spending 16 hours at a table playing excessive amounts of Munchkin for all and sundry. And hand out prizes. People tend to like that part.
So yeah, there is your update of me-ness. Now I leave for work.

|My Life Is Average
Today at work, a rubber band fight broke out.
It was between 4 employees. And our MANAGER.
He ended it by saying "Don't say you never have fun on my shift."
I work at a BANK.
My Job Is Awesome

Found while Wikistumbling to the article "Body Shot", which has a detailed descrition of licking alcohol off people's bodies, and then commenting on how it is arousing and foreplay.
So at the bottom, right above the stub line? Someone addedThis cocktail-related article is unnecessarily creepy. You can help Wikipedia by finding someone less creepy to edit it.

This poll is probably most of interest to paper and dice roleplayers, but everyone should play. I'm curious to see just how many dice it's (a)typical for people to own.
Feel free to link or repost this poll in your own journals (by pasting "<lj-poll-1356329>" into an entry where you'd like it to appear), as more data makes the results betterer.
Roughly how many dice do you have?
0 (About enough for Amber Diceless)
1-2 (Monopoly, many other board games)
8-10 (One set of WoD dice)
11-12 (One polyhedral set, plus some d6s nicked from Yachtzee)
13-14 (Two poly sets; or, the above and the Monopoly dice too.)
21-36 (One 12mm d6 block)
37-50 (D6 block + 2 poly sets; vampires, vampires everywhere)
51-75 (The above, plus d6s scavenged from every board game you've ever owned. Including Snakes & Ladders)
76-100 (The above, plus a few more dice)
101-125 (Um. You may be considering a bigger dice bag?)
126-150 (...these descriptors are rapidly becoming useless)
If you feel like counting, exactly how many dice do you have?

|I has an angry
So we aparently had a power surge today while I was at work. Lovely... after all these days of power DROPS, we get a surge.
I get home to discover that this surge had some longer term effects.
Long story short... my Xbox Media Center is fried. Kaput. Deader than death. This is a bloody pain in the ass for various reasons, as this was my media center. Replacing it wll cost about $80 (or more...)
But no, it doesn't stop there. My fucking Xbox 360 is fried as well! At least the power brick is... the light on it doesn't even light up when it's plugged in.
Most ridiculous part? Replacing the damn brick costs $100! I am not making this up.
The power supply for a $200 system will cost me $100. This is just... so very not cool.
This is assuming that my 360 itself isn't fried... without a working power supply, I can't tell!
I don't have this kind of money after the holidays. Fuck this motherfucking fuckfuck.

So my Christmas gift from the ever wonderful sparklemagpie
arrived yesterday, just in time for New Years.
Behold! I am now the dorky posessor of...
Le Woot! Pure Hematite.
As this order was sent from RPGShop.com, they included an item of "Mystery Swag" with it. In this case, it was a CD of paper miniatures!
It's a physical CD of this product bundle.
Simply print, cut and stand up to have easy figs for play. For an example of what they look like, a free sample is available here.
Not the most useful as I'm not playing an offline game right now, but still pretty nifty!
