Well, I suppose congratulations are in order. I'm gonna crawl back into this mango tequila sunrise until the pain subsides. A Fuckin sweep, Senate too. Any of you Canadian biotches looking for a date? I'm a good cook!

Lol, I'm sure anonymous online dating has led to many successful relationships. An xkcd eharmony, if you will. A deeper more meaningful relationship. I'm just kidding around, laughter is the best medicine. So, what you're saying is, a dick pick wouldn't win them over? I'll make a note. Cheers bud!

Well, I can think of at least six married couples that met each other here on the xkcd forum. So yeah? I don't really find misogyny funny, and to answer your question - yeah don't send a dick pic to people unless they specifically ask for them.

I'm just going to assume the "ch" was a mistake and Sombrero Cat is really, really open-minded about inter-species dating.

Sombrero Cat does have past form of using biotches as a way to address everyone. Which makes it more annoying.

Though using it to address women does have a beautiful way of letting us know that you are undateable.

Yes yes, commander porn was lecturing me on the use of biotch. I'm assuming food porn, because the hypocrisy would be too funny.

Yes yes, I'm rather fond of horses, maybe my centaur offspring will avenge the mocking internet drivel. lol

I will say, the politically incorrectness of Trump did have a refreshing truth to it. Probably one of the reasons why I supported him through the primaries. I just wanted to hear what he would say next. Not in a million years did I think he could pull it out with his gunslinger approach. He's a character, I'll give him that.

Yes yes, undateable. Well, thanks! All these years I thought it was because I haven't worn underwear or close toed shoes for a decade. Who would've thunk, all I need to do was change my dirty pirate vocabulary. Well, now that I know that! Thank you! I'm sure my dating life will be all sunshine and rainbows from here. LMAO ladies, I bid you a fine evening.

Lastly, this being my final post addressing this subject, do you think I give a bakers dozen what you think? Ill move on with my dirty pirate life, and y'all can go back to whatever y'all do...I shall think of it no more..

Gotta go wash the sand off, and this tequila ain't gonna drink itself! I really wish they made a waterproof sunscreen that really worked. Hope you had a nice day! Don't forget the TPS reports! Lol

Actually, an evening spent doing legal and consensual things we both enjoy does sound more attractive when the other person's a female German Shepherd or Berner than when she's Sarah Palin or Diane Feinstein, especially in a country with such easy access to guns.

Dear lord, what did I get into last night. Didn't wake up till 10. Not my normal 5am gig. Had a name written on my arm with a heart and a crumpled up piece of paper with a phone number. For duck sake man. Door was locked from the inside...dear lord, better pour a Margo and ponder. It's disturbing when you wake up naked with a name written on your arm and a crumpled up piece of paper on the counter. Door was locked from the inside! Duck, looks like a beach day. Gotta ponder this. Darn tequila! Curse your deliciousness! I just hope I didn't offend anyone with my dirty pirate hooker talk. I don't think I smacked any fannies, but lord only knows, don't remember the name being written on my arm either. It was above the sleave, so shirt must have been rolled up or off. Dear lord, door was locked from the inside. Hope y'all are having a good day! Mine is starting out a bit on the rough side. Nothing a Margo an a wee bit of sun can't fix...

Well, after last night, you would've thought I learned a lesson on the sloppiness...no no, up at ten again today. Some nice people drove my car home last night. I know this because the seat was forward and the steering wheel was down. I have a little road rash on my cheek. What the heck, I gotta get more productive hobbies. Breakfast is still bacon, eggs, squash and tortillas cooked in grease de bacon. Doobie and Margo. Shit, what to do today! This road rash on the cheek is really bugging. Well, I finally gave up the delicious cheese. Slowly, next is the tortillas, then tequila, and then single digits on the coldies. No hurry, can't do everything in the first month. Que barbaro no.
Bilbao is a nice town, good food.

Ya know, I don't even need to lock my doors here. It reminds me of San Diego in the late 70s early 80s. I was just a little kid, but exact same vibe. Hang ten and OP...This is a great little jewel of a town. All the noise you hear about Mexico being dangerous is bull shit. You have a much greater probability of being the victim of a violent crime in America. Fact. Paradise lost, sucking up the last bit, writing the tequila diaries Oh the anthropologists eye.

Oh, got a scrape on the knee too. Coincides with scrape on left cheek. Thank god, much better than mano de la chica. They don't have bitches down here, so dirty pirate hooker talk is frowned apon, obviously...

I'm into Swedish social dancing, which means bugg and a version of international foxtrot that has an extremely close hold and forehead contact.

Some examples of bugg: Fast competitive Slow competitive
Some examples of swedish foxtrot: These guys are good A more representative example. It may come off as something only lovers would engage in, but it's quite casual and half the time you've never even met your dance partner before.

This is exactly why I keep my contradancing experiences to once or twice a year. Any more than that and it's liable to take over my life.

But also hooray for a parasite that sounds like lots of fun.

Linux is weird.

Or perhaps it's only docker making a fuss. In any case a remote system was so hung up that I couldn't start any new programs, like top, ps, sudo, shutdown or logout (yes, exiting an ssh session would hang). Everything that was still running was doing fine, like ssh, the webserver (throwing 502s because some other process did crash) and bash with all its built-in commands (like kill, cat and the likes).
Miraculously nano, free and, best of all, su were also still functional, so I could do sysrq magic to reboot the whole thing.

Now I still don't have any idea what's ruining the system or how to even look for the symptoms on the internet.

Haha, holy crap. I just came back from an the most comically awkward date. After trying to get anything resembling a conversation starting for about half an hour, I ran out of topics and didn't get much in terms of help carrying the conversation from my partner, so then we just looked at each other for a minute of solid awkwardness and decided to call it.

Some hour later, I bumped into her while I was walking home, and the both of us just burst into laughter upon seeing each other again. It was a pretty funny ordeal.
