Anti-abortion psychos tried to blow up a Planned Parenthood in a suburb of my city.  :icon_frown:

I'm sorry, but a small part of me had to laugh a little, and though I do not wish to make light of a horrible act of terrorism like that, I can't help but think...

"Right to Life" my ass!

I would guess,  it is (the old) Deathclaw. Not quite sure, though, what the position of the Sigmarite Church is on the use of steam engines for Holy Altars.

I am sure like everything else, the servants of Sigmar are divided on it's use.  On one hand, it would make sense that to oppose the enemies of Sigmar, and crush them under the wheels of faith and justice, we use the most advanced technology.  On the other you have the purists that would probably say that the machinisations of the engineering school have only been inspired by the taint of chaos, and must be avoided at all costs.

I'm fed up with my job. All full time staff has just been cut down to a max of 36 hours a week and, I still have to look it up but, in order to receive insurance through the company you have to be working 37.5 hours a week. We don't have the staff left (after laying people off) to get vacations, and I'm still "part time" even though I've been working 40 hours consistently for months now.

The only thing making it worse is that I have heard back from 3 companies I've applied to in the last 9 months, and have gotten no where on getting a new job, or starting my career. My computer science degree is rotting while I'm stuck in a retirement home kitchen.

You can always see if my company has something to suit your needs, I have been here a little over a year, and love it!  Right now, we are getting more overtime than I can handle, and need to hire additional people.

My pay increases...since I am not a salaried position, anything over 40 hours I get paid 1.5 times my normal wage.  (Which really adds up)

So this week, my boss, (who is the CEO of a multi-billion dollar company) comes to me and informs me that my workload is increasing tenfold...

Yay - Overtime!

Boo - Stress, and a LOT more work...

Happy Random thoughts
1.) Got cast in local production of Sweeny Todd.
2.) My son's 6th b-day was this weekend
3.) Been really into some anime lately...particularly Full Metal Alchemist
4.) I have lost 15 lbs since January!

-edit- Had to add the weight loss, that one is awesome too!

They are always looking for Tech people, and the best part is there is not a huge commitment required for tech. (You pretty much work on it when you can.)   So check out the volunteer form if you are interested.

Just found out that I made callbacks for a lead in the local production of Sweeny Todd!  And, I thought I blew the audition on Monday!   :happy:

I'll know more after Thursday evening.

I have a pretty big audition tonight...
but, I couldn't find a pianist to rehearse my audition piece with, so the first time I hear the piano part will be when I am performing for the audition.   :blush: 

I am not sure how it will go, I am glad I know the song well, but timing may get a little off...and I hope that doesn't throw off my pitch if I get flustered since I hadn't rehearsed with accompaniment.

I am hoping that I can say, "I didn't have a chance to rehearse with an accompanist..."  and then really nail the audition! 

I will post results tomorrow either in the Happy thread, or Sad thread...stay tuned.

I voted!   :happy:  I gave you an 8 simply because I reserve 9's and 10's for things that are crazy freehand and such...like the Golden Demon winners.

One of my other hobbies is performing in local theater.  I have an upcoming audition for Sweeny Todd, on monday evening...
but, I feel really unprepared, and nervous about the song I have chosen to perform as an audition piece.

For a time, when I was going to go with Nuln, I was going to have the primary color black, and different accent colors for different units.

Black w/ Red accents for Halberdiers
Black w/ Green for Spearmen...etc...

Hey...my Dell Laptop is like 6 years old, and has been dropped like 4 times, and is still almost like new...it is like built like a rock.  (Good price too)  So, just like cars and peoples, there are good ones and bad ones...

Congrats Odominus!

so, before you move t12161991, we should get together for some gaming or lunch...

Ah yes, found it last night.

US White Dwarf issue #305

There was a great article on guilds and cults in that issue as well.  The butchers guild conversions really stick out in my mind as well.

And of course, Rob's VC army is always neat to see...

Craphead Slaphead? Are British kids f*ckin retarded? What the hell kind of lame nickname is that? My last name is Dickerson, and I can tell you, I grew up with some creative little @$$holes. Craphead Slaphead would have gotten them beaten up for coming up with such a terrible taunt.

I am sure that they probably did come up with something better, but seeing as Craphead Slaphead rhymed, and it seems kind of catchy it was published...

I suppose there are worse things that the gods could have cursed him with...  A small penis shaped nose for example..

That sounds like something I would be interested in... in 4-6 years once I finish my education.

I don't think a 20 year old half way through college with limited work experience on his resume is quite the candidate they'd be looking for.

In the meantime, there may be something posted you can do while you work on school... we have a pretty flexible schedule.

If you are interested, I will send you a link.  Also, there are positions other regions of the country.

Yes, it will be interesting to see, where it goes.

Nice work.  (Again)  :biggriin:

If I got these, I would be so tempted to paint them like polar bears...or panda bears...both would be fun.
