I Am A: Neutral Evil Human Sorcerer (4th Level)

Ability Scores:







Neutral Evil A neutral evil villain does whatever he can get away with. He is out for himself, pure and simple. He sheds no tears for those he kills, whether for profit, sport, or convenience. He has no love of order and holds no illusion that following laws, traditions, or codes would make him any better or more noble. On the other hand, he doesn�t have the restless nature or love of conflict that a chaotic evil villain has. Some neutral evil villains hold up evil as an ideal, committing evil for its own sake. Most often, such villains are devoted to evil deities or secret societies. Neutral evil is the best alignment you can be because you can advance yourself without regard for others. However, neutral evil can be a dangerous alignment because it represents pure evil without honor and without variation.

Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.

Sorcerers are arcane spellcasters who manipulate magic energy with imagination and talent rather than studious discipline. They have no books, no mentors, no theories just raw power that they direct at will. Sorcerers know fewer spells than wizards do and acquire them more slowly, but they can cast individual spells more often and have no need to prepare their incantations ahead of time. Also unlike wizards, sorcerers cannot specialize in a school of magic. Since sorcerers gain their powers without undergoing the years of rigorous study that wizards go through, they have more time to learn fighting skills and are proficient with simple weapons. Charisma is very important for sorcerers; the higher their value in this ability, the higher the spell level they can cast.

Today I opened the patio door to recycle an empty can that held diced tomatos. As I opened the door and stuck my arm out a wasp buzzed around my face.

I screamed.

I screamed like a girl.

I slammed the door, and dissolved into giggles.

I can't believe I screamed like a girl...

Wow, do I fail at updating.

Bad news: After about 3 years at our wonderful house in Shawnessy, we can no longer afford the rent without another person, and Sheila has decided she wants to move out and live with other people. Which is wonderful, and I wish her the best, but moving is super annoying. Moving in winter is even worse. But, we will make it through, Brad and Chris will stay with us in a money-saving roommate situation that allows us to pay down debts, pay for tuition, and (in theory) save.

Good news: I made a chainmaille bag yesterday while recovering from night shift. Photos to be posted eventually. The bag is little, but it holds all 7 of my gaming dice, so I'm happy. I want to improve on how I closed the bottom. It didn't turn out bad for a first try, but I want to get the reduction in the number of rings per row a little better. Or maybe I'll close the next one with a Japanese style bottom. We shall see. I ordered more rings yesterday (before I got tiny paycheque of tininess) so they should be here soon and I can start playing with them.

If you look up "link'd chainmaille" on facebook, you can see the things that I've made, and if you so desire, make a purchase. Anything on there can be re-made custom to fit you, or the colours that you like. And it will help me pay for tuition so I can get my degree and better the world! Can you think of a more fun way to assist in world betterment than acquiring shiny jewelry? I sure can't.

School news: I wrote a midterm on the 11th and it went fairly well, I think. I have some work in developmental psych to do today, as well as some health studies stuff. And two papers to finish, yeesh. I should probably get to work.

Work news: Still loving the work at the hospice. Though I like it better when the patients are awake and I can interact with them. Night shifts are great for studying and all, but they drag. Evenings are more fun. I am missing a staff meeting today because I refuse to drive to Okotoks on my only true day off to have a meeting with staff for an hour. I would rather go to ones that are held on days that I actually work.

Josie news: My Josie is awesome. She's at work right now, but she'll be home soon. I love her. I'm really lucky to have her love me, you know. All sorts of wonderful, that woman is...

Declan news: *pant pant* *looks up at me* *continues to pant* Nothing new with him.

And so, I close. There is a possibility of grocery shopping tonight as well as a possibility that I might get everything done today that I need to. But then again, there is the possibility that I might not. Only time will tell.

Friday is my mother's birthday. As per usual, we are going to a restaurant to celebrate. I have to bring a cake.

Anyway, this year my wife is actually not busy, and can attend. She is welcome, but her service dog isn't, according to them. I had a big argument with my sister about how it would embarass mom to be seen with a service dog in the group, and about how the restaurant will be crowded so he might get hurt, or even how something might happen so he might even hurt someone! (This insults me greatly). They think it will bring a bunch of unwanted attention, but they don't seem to see that a wheelchair (which is my wife's other option) will bring just as much, maybe even more attention. Besides, if she has the dog, she can get into places that are not wheelchair accessable.

Usually the wife and I are very compliant with their wishes. She CAN manage without him if I help her, but it doesn't work as well. She uses botox injections to relax her muscles in her legs so she can walk, and the botox is wearing off. We do not ask to bring him to their homes as they have their own pets and we don't want to start an issue there. But this meal will be in a restaurant, which is a place he is allowed to go without question.

How on earth do I handle this? My wife (rightfully so) now doesn't want to go. She feels judged and hurt that they would even think her dog would harm anyone, and I would imagine she feels that they think she is a liar about what her dog does. My dad is insisting that he change the restaurant to something less busy, but truthfully, everything is busy on Fridays. There will be tension if my wife goes. If she doesn't go, they get their way and will continue to insist that he is not welcome. If she doesn't go, I dont' want to go because I want to prove that she is family too, and quite frankly, I'm insulted by the whole ordeal.

Does anyone have any ideas how we can handle this situation?

I drove all night through the mountains, all the way to Cache Creek, where Josie took over for a while. The trip was good, fast, rather eventless.

We saw a coyote, an "adolescent moose", and strangely enough, quite nearly hit a very white kitten who was in the middle of the highway somewhere between Canmore and Golden. I'm really glad we didn't hit the kitten.

When we got here, I had a nap, and then a shower. Teresa, Josie's brother's Juan's girlfriend/wife person did my hair really nicely. Tonight we're off to watch Emily, our niece, dance in her ballet show. It will be fantastic!

Stay tuned for updates. While there is no cellular service, there is wireless internet, and I can get online rather frequently.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Monogamy can mean many different things. If monogamy means that the person you are with is the only person that you can be with, and you both agree, then that is monogamy.

If you are in a couple and agree that it is okay to be with other people, so long as you both agree to that, then it is not cheating. One can have a monogamous relationship and still have sex with other people.

Taken further, if you both believe that it is okay to fall in love with other people, we come to polyamory. As long as both (or all!) of the people involved believe that it is okay to live and love that way, then it is not cheating.

Here are some more updates of some of the chainmaille I have.

I usually sell the bracelets for $15, anklets for $20 and necklaces for $25 if they are the aluminum rings. Rings that are stainless steel or other metal will cost extra and take longer to make as I do not have those rings in stock. All orders are custom orders.

byzantine weave 18g 3/16" rings. Silver.

Four-in-one box weave in brown,  blue and silver. 18g 3/16" rings.

Byzantine weave in black, purple, silver and pink. 18g 3/16" rings.

4-in-1 thumb ring. 22g 1/8" rings. silver

Circle weave in silver, black and blue. 18g 3/16".

Byzantine bracelets in progress. 20g 1/8" adonized aluminum.

Complete european 4-in-1 bracelet. Adonized aluminum.

So because those who are in charge of student loans won't lend me enough to cover tuition, I have to earn some extra somehow.

I enjoy weaving chainmaille, and I'm pretty good at it. I have all sorts of colours, and I prefer to do custom work. I can make bracelets, necklaces, and when more rings come in, pendents and rings for your fingers or thumb too.

Message me privately, let me know which weaves you like, and what colours you like too. I have black, green, blue, red, brown, purple, gold and pink. If you would like custom work done with precious metals I will need a 50% deposit in order to order gold and silver rings, and the remainder of the funds when the work is complete. Since each order is custom it can take up to a week for me to finish the piece.

The jewelry is made out of aluminum so that it is lightweight and durable.

College" by DAVE BARRY

Many of you young persons out there are seriously thinking about going to college. (That is, of course, a lie. The only things you young persons think seriously about are loud music and sex. Trust me: these are closely related to college.)

College is basically a bunch of rooms where you sit for roughly two thousand hours and try to memorize things. The two thousand hours are spread out over four years; you spend the rest of the time sleeping and trying to get dates.

Basically, you learn two kinds of things in college:

* Things you will need to know in later life (two hours). These include how to make collect telephone calls and get beer and crepe-paper stains out of your pajamas.

* Things you will not need to know in later life (1,998 hours). These are the things you learn in classes whose names end in -ology, -osophy, -istry, -ics, and so on. The idea is, you memorize these things, then write them down in little exam books, then forget them. If you fail to forget them, you become a professor and have to stay in college for the rest of your life.

It's very difficult to forget everything. For example, when I was in college, I had to memorize -- don't ask me why -- the names of three metaphysical poets other than John Donne. I have managed to forget one of them, but I still remember that the other two were named Vaughan and Crashaw. Sometimes, when I'm trying to remember something important like whether my wife told me to get tuna packed in oil or tuna packed in water, Vaughan and Crashaw just pop up in my mind, right there in the supermarket. It's a terrible waste of brain cells.

After you've been in college for a year or so, you're supposed to choose a major, which is the subject you intend to memorize and forget the most things about. Here is a very important piece of advice: Be sure to choose a major that does not involve Known Facts and Right Answers.

This means you must *not* major in mathematics, physics, biology, or chemistry, because these subjects involve actual facts. If, for example, you major in mathematics, you're going to wander into class one day and the professor will say: "Define the cosine integer of the quadrant of a rhomboid binary axis, and extrapolate your result to five significant vertices." If you don't come up with *exactly* the answer the professor has in mind, you fail. The same is true of chemistry: if you write in your exam book that carbon and hydrogen combine to form oak, your professor will flunk you. He wants you to come up with the same answer he and all the other chemists have agreed on. Scientists are extremely snotty about this.

So you should major in subjects like English, philosophy, psychology, and sociology -- subjects in which nobody really understands what anybody else is talking about, and which involve virtually no actual facts. I attended classes in all these subjects, so I'll give you a quick overview of each:

ENGLISH: This involves writing papers about long books you have read little snippets of just before class. Here is a tip on how to get good grades on your English papers: Never say anything about a book that anybody with any common sense would say. For example, suppose you are studying Moby Dick. Anybody with any common sense would say that Moby Dick is a big white whale, since the characters in the book refer to it as a big white whale roughly eleven thousand times. So in *your* paper, *you* say Moby Dick is actually the Republic of Ireland. Your professor, who is sick to death of reading papers and never liked Moby Dick anyway, will think you are enormously creative. If you can regularly come up with lunatic interpretations of simple stories, you should major in English.

PHILOSOPHY: Basically, this involves sitting in a room and deciding there is no such thing as reality and then going to lunch. You should major in philosophy if you plan to take a lot of drugs.

PSYCHOLOGY: This involves talking about rats and dreams. Psychologists are *obsessed* with rats and dreams. I once spent an entire semester training a rat to punch little buttons in a certain sequence, then training my roommate to do the same thing. The rat learned much faster. My roommate is now a doctor. If you like rats or dreams, and above all if you dream about rats, you should major in psychology.

SOCIOLOGY: For sheer lack of intelligibility, sociology is far and away the number one subject. I sat through hundreds of hours of sociology courses, and read gobs of sociology writing, and I never once heard or read a coherent statement. This is because sociologists want to be considered scientists, so they spend most of their time translating simple, obvious observations into scientific-sounding code. If you plan to major in sociology, you'll have to learn to do the same thing. For example, suppose you have observed that children cry when they fall down. You should write: "Methodological observation of the sociometrical behavior tendencies of prematurated isolates indicates that a casual relationship exsts between groundward tropism and lachrimatory, or 'crying,' behavior forms." If you can keep this up for fifty or sixty pages, you will get a large government grant.

So clinic today was really neat.

They will let me use my known donor, if he flies to Toronto to bank his sperm, has STI checks every time, and if they bank his sperm for 6 months. This is because of Health Canada standards. So, we'll buy semen from the bank in Toronto, to the tune of $400-$650/vial plus shipping. The IUI will be $325 which includes washing the sperm. They will allow me to use clomid through the cycles because they agree that I should be pregnant if things were working right.

I will have a trans-vaginal ultrasound to check my egg reserve, and I will have a HSG to ensure that I'm clear and don't have fibroids or a septum or something wrong with my fallopian tubes. They'll do bloodwork to screen for STIs (again), and to test for CMV and some other stuff.

One of the neat parts was when the doctor asked if my wife was planning on ever carrying, and we said ya, if it's medically ok (she's got cerebral palsy and is on medications for it that interfere with healthy fetal development), and she get get off her meds, she'd like to try. So they're going to do the trans-vag ultrasound and some bloodwork on her too. Lucky girl gets to skip the HSG for now.

I have a followup clinic appt in 6 weeks to discuss results. We have to pick a donor too, and deal with shipping and stuff. Any suggestions for donor choices?

So, more waiting. But at least we're finally into the clinic! And things will go well from here.

A frustration was that a friend told me this morning that he psychically knew that this run of the clinic wouldn't work at all. He has decided he is a wiccan priest and that he is precognitive and knew that this trip at the clinic would fail. I told him that we've never been to the clinic before and to get stuffed. He said that he's only right 85% of the time. But seriously, I mean, what kind of friend says that to someone who has been trying to get pregnant for 18+months?

I know he has no freaking idea, but it still upset me. I want so badly for this to work. I just have to have faith that it will.

My fertility doctor is fantastic. The bio on the website looks like she knows what she's doing. I'm excited. It's nice to have hope back.
