@June Bug - Sometimes the best gigs are the gigs you don't get.

(Mumble) years ago, having come off of massive m*stard, I applied for an interesting job which would have taken my life in a new direction - film production - which I had gotten interested in. I gave it my best shot, but in the state I was in, they decided to give the job to somebody else. There were only three applicants, and one of them was not really qualified at all, so it wasn't like it was even a long shot. So, back to whatever it was I was doing... but two months later the guy they had hired wasn't working out, and they called me back. Was I still interested? Well, in those two months I had recovered quite a bit, and (truth be told) I wasn't really ready for the position when it first came around. But two months later everything aligned.

You can never tell.

Besides, you weren't drawn and quartered, you didn't get burned at the stake, and they didn't force you to take home an accordion. That's a win!

You have a job where they pay you to beat on things with thwapsticks. How much better can it get?

Don't think of auditions as a test that you have to pass (or not). Don't play to get the gig. Play to have fun. Today. Now. Ch*rp the gig.

That takes the pressure off. And you will have had fun. Today. Life is made of today.

Postby thunk » Sun Jun 26, 2016 5:18 am UTC

Yes, I'm taking 495. But I have a good sense of direction.

(fittingly, MA-27 is somewhere between the two. It's all RELATED.)

2020/2499 pages read (80.83%)
62.0 dips taken.

I think I ended up with two pages of notes this time--By randall, these pages keep getting more seaish! NP/np rate is now down to about four.

--World Cup coverage is fun! I watched that hotdog. But I have no interest in the tf2 hotdog.
--I have monitor wobble as well. No screw holes. The epoxy idea is a good one.
--Birthyip posts continue--at 1996, I'm close to the last of them (but two yips behind patzer and ergman).
--Hi, sustainabilizer! Hi, Opiboble! Hi, kalira and TieSoul!
--molpy personae: Fun, in moderation. I liked being a yi. Velociraptors are nice as well, if a bit too mainstream.
--The SilentOngs wrap up. Megball make some very very nice insightful comments, then decide to leave their island while sailing west into the distance. They must leave this place, but they'll be in safe hands, living and learning with the Beanies. Nice raftcastles! Nice e**ing! 10/10 would watch again.
--Happy Milleniparty 2k! There is much more to come, that's true.
--morobu: “Like all migratory birds, Link is an expert on weather”...that sounds about right.
--Custard is delicious. Seriously. Yum.
--I stayed in IslONGton when visiting London. While I would usually look askance at airbnb, spending a few nights in an old church was wowterful.
--Sustainabilizer: “Ha! Endlich mal ein Forum, in dem es in Ordnung ist, auf kleinste Details zu achten.” I seem to like these sorts of detailed places.
--Nice "Blitzposting" video by coBalthamin. My approach is not as arduous as yours, thankfully.
--"I've never been very good with bicycles—whoever came up with the idea forgot that some people have tails." Might explain CD's difficulties with getting a driver's license.

Steambottle content:
Spoiler:
--America's healthcare system is fundamentally broken, and it's ridiculous that we can't have single-payer like the rest of the Western world.
--ED: "'ordinary non-exotic woman' seems like an oxymoron." Usually, people don't like to be exoticised/fetishised. GLR and the forumites have explained this to heuri recently.
--Focusing on how autistic children are a burden on their parents erases their experiences (and those of autistic adults) and acts as a justification for those parents who choose to murder said children. As such, I don't like it one bit.
--I need ice cream for Brexit.

Good luck June Bug! Hope it goes better the next time around.

Oh, and hi pelrigg. It's interesting actually talking to people I know only from the akashic historical records.

The last few dips have been steambottle for me too. It'll most likely get better.

Prediction - seven beers later:
...so then he asks me what I want to do. I know I have nothing prepared for the glass harmonica, so I ask if I've still got a positive for-the-hell-of-it momentum balance. The GM mishears me, and thinks that I said "halibut", so he volunteers that although I'm out of halibut, I've still got a fluke charm in my witcher creel. I decide to give that a try, and I roll a natural 47 for my serendipity check, which is unheard of! So I approach the glass harmonica with confidence, but just as I'm almost there, I hear one of the judges mutter that he's always hated the ch*rping glass harmonica and he just can't wait to reject me and go for lunch. In my deflated distraction I trip on the stage, straight into the glass harmonic which shatters into tiny shards flying as if out of a crystal gatling gun. The GM suggests that I roll for trajectory - and can you believe it - I roll a natural 489.8! The shards fly across the stage in exactly the right pattern to play Grieg's Piano Concerto in A minor on a gong that happens to be set up in a gentle spotlight, and simultaneously the fluke rearranges itself into an amazing casserole which drops onto the table in front of the hungry judge. The judge only rolled an F natural for resistance, so not only did I get the gig, but also a week in the Bahamas and a free bambillo pillow set.

You're awesomeful, Laura. This is going to be a look-back-and-laugh story.

yes, of course, she will.

Will she ever forgive me?

Not me, unfortunately. It keeps alternating between oppressively hot and totally Zanclean. Though I guess I can't complain: just a little bit (~100km or so) to the east of where I am, there were hailstones the size of tennis balls a few dips ago. A single hailstorm caused over €100 million worth of m*stard. :shock: Most greenhouses, carcastles and solar panels in the area were completely CUBAR. Luckily I experienced none of that; just lots of thunderstorms.

Oh well, I have a few more dips in the Basement remaining anyway; I have one last university project to finish and then I get two whole mips of holidips.

Yeah, I can imagine. I'm in an area which regularly gets large hailstorms, but so far have not experienced anything too bad in that regard. Hope it stays that way. Good luck on the final project--you'll make it through and soon it'll be molpish!

So, the Brexit vote has passed, it would seem.

As an Aussie, I'm unsure of the implications of this, but it's been said that the $AUD will plummet like never before, to ~US$0.60, which will be an utter disaster. (Much like re-electing ANY of our existing politicians would be.)

I'm unsure whether to grab popcorn or a liferaft.

As I understand it, it's an advisory vote only. The actual ruling bodies could ignore it (though there would be some political fallout). In any case, should Parliament actually begin the process, the EU has two years to prepare the "exit contract", after which GB haggles with them about the terms. When everymolpy's equally miserable, the split happens.

So, for now, nothing happens. But the m*stard has been revealed.

Has there been a fundamental shift in the English Speaking World?

Gone are the Light Hearted Days of Brian Cox,
one of Britain's best and brightest, contemplating:
"When is a Strawberry, really, dead?"

He is, still, one of his nation's best and brightest.
Why will 'the people' not listen to him?

Is it because he joked too much before Braxit?
They think he is joking now? He is not. Is He?

So am I, for what it's worth. Looks like you found a good group, and a great GM, to boot. Willingness to improvise, and roll with whatever the players come up with makes for some very fun games :D

June Bug, never give up. If percussion is fun to you (and it sounds like it is), don't let a botched audition stop you. *hugs*

I think that would be like unto a side of beef. Very steakish. Rosetta's stumbles are important context and clues to what she's actually trying to say. But who knows more about clues than you? :)

Strangely. It's a bit too embarrassing to discuss openly.

Heh - I wasn't sure I'd be into this, but then I couldn't turn it off. Found myself :azuling: when the mace starts talking (and mumbling) in Episode 2.

I think you're right about the Rosetta's stumbles, but I'm also prone to huge bouts of confirmation bias, so it's hard for me to tell.

Speaking of stumbling though... I have stumbled in my faith. Does the Pope of the Holy Contradiction hear confessions?

All of the STAFs are built and ready.
Except one.
It doesn't work correctly. After turning off and on again it forgets what time it is.
The RTC IC. How could anyone think that making the IC available in TSSOP10 only and nothing else is an actual good idea?
I don't remember what TSSOP originally means but "TS" must be "terribly small"...
Soldering this IC is problematic.
I managed to damage the tracks under it.
And that's why it didn't work.

I unsoldered the RTC and some elements related to it.
I soldered a redundant one to a smd adapter, like this one.
It this time it didn't work even worse. it stopped counting time at all. I found out that its three legs got connected to each other.
That happens sometimes when soldering such small ICs. But it can be fixed. But not this time. The legs got somehow connected under the IC.
Fixing it would require unsoldering it again. And getting one more adapter since removing the IC would probably damage this one.

So I spent some extra time to fix it and the result is even worse than before.
But at least the three others are working.

I love all of you. You are kind and generous and funny and awesomeful.

Silly addams, karhell is of course exactly right. Time given helped a dear friend* (and did not contain bobcat). Would give again.

I somehow have never seen that Monty Python sketch. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. Not having seen every Monty Python sketch is a terrible thing! :)


Hugs and well wishes to ED, and ice cream for everyone!

*And considering her previous avatar, also a deer friend.

Thanks!
I echo the sentiment :D Being kind and generous and funny and awesomeful seems contagious among OTTers.
And I hadn't seen that sketch either. I'll have to have another youtube party and see if I missed any others!
