Also, holy shit, this thread is OVER 9000! <cue flood of memes>
WHAT NINE THOUSAND
It had to be done.
You disgust me.
Trying to move from self employed to full time employment is much harder than it seems in these days of paperless everything.
When the bank you're trying to work for wont take a screenshot from their own Internet banking website as proof of address then it starts to get a bit silly.
In episode two they asked for employment history for the past 5 years. I said myself and they rang me up to get a reference. They're now disputing the date I incorporated my company despite it being publicly available information.
Episode three they're asking why I haven't signed the contract I haven't received yet but I'm now suspecting they sent to my old address.
This is a company that I already work at and send invoices to and have done for two years. Maybe I should reconsider.
Obviously I've missed a couple of movies... Didn't see anything between um, Beauty and the Beast, I think, and Tangled...
I wonder if you could somehow combine Spec Ops: The Line and Hatoful Boyfriend into a dating sim where you have to track down a notorious budgie terrorist and you can fall in love with the special pigeon forces along the way. Zero Dark Birdie.
I may be a bit sleep-deprived at the moment, I'm not sure. But I think this is a license to print money.
Mulan! One of my favourite Disney movies.
Excuse me, but I think Mulan is definitely a movie worth seeing.
it's kind of amazing.
kind of amazing
You know what I just realized? You people are all crazy. And so am I since I post in this thread as well.
You should totally see Mulan.
For many, many reasons.
It is Aaron-recommended for everyone who retains the capability to squee.
Is the Chinese cinema version of Mulan worth a look? I've not seen the Disney version either
HA! Sorry, I did not know what I had started until I was pointed back here to see.
I am back in Missouri, but have had zero opportunity for BF browsing time or to summon
Nute or any of the other Kansas Citians to try to set up another meet up. So fucking busy trying to get everything done.
There is a bar next to the hotel. Intern no longer drinks. Co-worker my age is taking it easy so it is up to the 43 year old bastard to drink eight beers, pull darts out of the dart board with his teeth and post Night Ranger lyrics on Facebook in the couple hours before I pass out in the bed and get up and get back to work. Auditing is fucking hard tired. Lots of steak and water has eliminated most hangover action. :)
Jamie's Place in Holden Missouri is really good though. :)
You'll be alright tonight.
NOT UNLESS YOU WANT TO CRY YOUR LITTLE HEART OUT
Oh damn, I just realized that's part of Megara's song
Disney's Hercules is a god damn travesty. I cannot forgive Hercules being the beloved son of Hera and Zeus and not burning his three children alive or getting his wife raped by a centaur in the middle of a river cause the guy was so fucking stupid.
Also gospel singing in ancient Greece? Fuck you, Disney.
when i was little, my disney "princesses" were jasmine, pocahontas, and the Muses from Hercules.
that was all i had to look up to (and not even the first two because i mean come on now)
it is any wonder i turned out the way i did
"HONEY YOU MEAN HUNK-ULES WHOO-HOO I'D LIKE TO MAKE SOME SWEET MUSIC-"
And the Muses? Sharp knees.
Naw but seriously (and I say this having dragged myself back from the brink of disney fuelled sing along songs because after you belt out the Bells of Notre Dame you are pretty much done, mang) I hadn't actually managed to watch the entirety of cinema Mulan but my family did and there were tears and they generally endorsed it so. Also Stefanie Sun's song is just heartbreak TT^TT
Just wait till you try their ice cream.
If I eat moldy bread will I die?
(Sooner than I otherwise would, I mean.)
Please say no.
Not unless you ate the green or white kind.
You didn't eat the green or white kind, right?
According to Lance Armstrong* you can get food poisoning from moldy bread. Mostly people survive that.
* okay, Livestrong.
Personally, I suspect drinking some rum will solve the problem. As it does with most problems in life.
If you start getting growths like this, see a doctor:
Yellow is what you really have to watch out for.
Fun fact: if you can see visible mold, there's a whole lot more invisible mold you've been eating already:
Mainly molds can cause allergic reactions and sometimes respiratory problems. You'll probably be fine though. The USDA has a nice handy faq about mold!
I couldn't see any mold. It just tasted.... earthy.
Hopefully I will make my saving roll.
I'm hoping I have independently discovered penicillin and have cured some lingering infection. Unfortunately (well I guess it's actually fortunate) I don't have any infections as far as I know.
The sad part is I ate a whole piece and started in on a second before my brain put the funny earthy taste together with my rudimentary knowledge of food hygeine and threw it away.
I've found a very good way of getting rid of earworms: your national anthem. Hum a few bars of it, and whatever song you had haunting you will go away.
Of course, then you may be stuck with the national anthem haunting you, but at least you'll be patriotically annoyed.
The US National Anthem doesn't work for me. Frankly it's not very hummable. We should have gone with America the Beautiful instead of a re-worded English drinking song.
Eating bread mold can also cause earworms.
it looks like it has a little mustache
It's from here.
the green face with the no eyes is making me want to cry if you'll excuse me
This post/avatar combination is the best.
You want to know why Mulan is the best Disney movie? Two words my friend: gay panic.
Question for those who live in carpeted homes:
(1) How often do you vacuum?
(2) How often should you vacuum?
Mainly mold can contain carcinogenic Aflatoxins.
It's snowmageddon! Otherwise known as yet another reason the rest of the world can point and laugh at us.
Bristol has pretty much ground to a halt. No buses, the office is almost deserted and there are reports of "panic" buying by those foolhardy enough to brave the elements and find an open shop. On the plus side the network is almost useable today.
How many feet of snow did this freak of nature bring last night?
Wait for it... About an inch and a half.
I vacuum once a week or so, because we have cats. I've known some cat owners to vacuum every day but fuck that noise.
I have no idea how often you're supposed to vacuum. I'd suggest once a month as an absolute minimum?
We have indoor cats too, and we vacuum (flooring and applicable furniture) about once a week. If we go any longer than that the house starts getting too dusty/hairy for my tastes, and it becomes intolerable to me.
I have no idea how often I'm supposed to vacuum.
