Hehe, yup. But here it is better to carry a flashlight and not reveal the fact that it's a stun gun(yes, stun gun). It's more sneaky and it can sneak through the airport through luggage. I'm also getting pepper spray for my girl since I may not always be there to, uh, kill some predators. They never pounce when I'm around.

But anywho, man oh man I can't wait to zap stuff.

Well, once you know what they are they look pretty alarming, but otherwise they just look like a heavy duty torch.

Taser story!

I was driving home from AX last year around midnight. To get from AX to my grandma's house, where I was staying the night, involves going through a sketchy area. I was a bit paranoid so I asked my husband to take out my taser while I drive. I got to my grandma's house and left the taser next to my purse and went to sleep.

My taser is also a flashlight and my grandpa just LOVES flashlights. So he saw it and got it to spark and he held it down for a while just watching the electricity. He's completely deaf, so he didn't hear the noise it made, but my super jumpy aunt sure did. I don't think I've heard her scream like that in years. Of course my grandpa got a good laugh out of it.

Got some old 70s and 80s Donald Duck comic books at the fair, as well as a comic album called Valhalla. The album I got contains three stories and the first one is about when Thor went fishing for the Midgard Serpent biggrin.gif

"Valhalla" is a series of comic books which they have put together in a five-volume album series. I read one of them when my dad worked at the school. I saw it, got curious and loaned it for awhile. Reading comics about the gods of my country felt so fresh, Iīd never done that before. Theyīre really good too, very well drawn pictures smile.gif

We had Floodnado here in Detroit yesterday. The funny thing is I had no idea until this morning when I went to work. It rained heavy last night by my apartment, but there was no flooding by me. Then when I was trying to drive in to work there were abandoned cars everywhere, and roads shut down all over the place. Apparently there were people taking kayaks and small boats down the interstate highways, which are still closed.

The irony is that while it was pouring yesterday I was watching Sharknado. So naturally I have been looking for dorsal fins in all the pictures of flooded areas. But there are no reports of shark-related deaths. Yet...

My songs know what you did...and said, in the dark.

There is very little which is not known to me.

Ironically, anything which is asked of me by any: and I do mean anyone, will be answered openly and truthfully in complete disclosure. Via PM of course, there is still a place for decorum.

Well....murder is a strong word.

Homicide means the cause of death was another Human Being, whether the act was illegal or just incredibly insensitive to the point of having questionable humanity may be a little more specific.

Doesn't change the outcome, unfortunately.

mirocu, I'm sure it will be stressful and take some adjusting going back to work after quite a time without a job. I so hope it goes well, that you quickly get back into the routine, have nice people that you work with and maybe the job grows on you and becomes a longer term gig for you. Anyway, best wishes and let us know how it goes. smile.gif
mirocu
Thanks, Acadian biggrin.gif

I know I canīt stroll around the house until I retire, I need a job... laugh.gif And I do think Iīll get back into it quite fast even after all this time. I just hope thereīs some decent stuff to do and decent people to talk to. If that is taken cared of Iīll be fine smile.gif

I start my first day of school tomorrow. I haven't been in a school setting since I attempted Job Corps maybe five years ago.

Oh and my husband is a bit insistent that I...talk to people. And be social. indifferent.gif He says being a total house-mouse isn't healthy and that I need friends. Aren't books friends? >.>


So, microu, best of luck on your first day back at work! smile.gif I'll hope for decent people and stuff for you!
Grits
Good luck today, mirocu and Jacki Dice!
mirocu
Thanks people! biggrin.gif

It must have helped because apparently I survived my first day laugh.gif

The working tempo was so much slower than at my old job. It was my first day, but still. I almost spent more time talking to people than working biggrin.gif They donīt look at you with angry eyes if you stand and chat for a few minutes here. Back at my old place that was basically the worst thing you could do tongue.gif

Work was fine and people were very talkative. But still, despite everything..... I actually miss my old place which now doesnīt even exist... indifferent.gif

Thanks smile.gif It wasnīt that big of a deal to be honest. Yes, I was disappointed about ending my vacation laugh.gif but I wasnīt nerve-wrecked at all about this new place smile.gif

I actually slept very well and wasnīt nervous about getting in the car and drive away either. Donīt know why but I guess my years at the old place have hardened me tongue.gif Also, I knew the place from when I went to school and Iīm only substituting for someone but even though I should make an effort to prove myself, I donīt feel any pressure.

A good day, but tomorrow is day two.... biggrin.gif

Great news mirocu. I'm sure before long, they'll discover that they need you on a permanent basis. I'm so glad the new place seems to be pleasant to work at.

And remember: More income = more games! tongue.gif
