So my friend and I are trying to do a weekly thing on Thursday nights. After seeing a movie last week (and our original post-movie plans fell through), I suggested we go to this Irish Pub I had been to once before. We had a really good time (and the bartender is a gamer/nerd as well), so we went back tonight. They had this really good chicken sandwich on the menu tonight. It's nice to just hang out for a few hours, have some decent food, a couple of drinks, and good conversation. We seem to end up talking with other patrons who find out conversations interesting enough to want to join in, which makes it more interesting.

urbwar urbwar , that sounds rad!

As for me, we're two weeks shy of the one-year anniversary of my big brother passing. Just trying to get by.

For the record, whenever I would refer to him as "big brother," he would clarify that I was the "younger, taller brother" and he was the "older, shorter, fat brother." Lol.

Here to talk if you need it. Loosing a sibling is tough.

Brock Savage Brock Savage Fenris-77 Fenris-77 Bunch Bunch I like most cats but character-wise I'm partial to black and white ones. IME those always have a bit of a screw loose.

Hang in there, man. All the best to you and yours. And feel free to hmu as well if you feel like talking to someone or even just just venting.

A toilet in an apartment above my store overflowed yesterday causing some water damage and a couple ceiling tiles to collapse. Fortunately all I lost was some unfinished projects and a couple inches off the end of the mdf board I'm making my art table out of. It could have been much worse. As it turns out someone left a broken drain snake in the system which slowly led to a blockage that eventually led to the overflow. Of course it all happened right as I was trying to get my wife out the door to drive two hours to our niece's wedding. I had to work today but I'm driving back tonight. So really, the in laws, the overflow and water damage weren't even the worst part of the day.

My Mum, who had been in hospital a couple of times this year, passed away last week, so I was at her house, clearing it out. It wasn't as difficult as I had imagined, as we kept to the basics of "Everything must go, so there's no point being sentimental about things". There were tears when I saw photos of my Grandparents, though.
I'm very sorry for your loss

Went out for my wife's birthday. went to do karaoke in a private room. Had a lot of fun. Drank at several bars. Found out a friend of a friend we were hanging out with was into gaming, he also lived literally less than a mile from my house and was sober so drove me home. Showed him my board game and TTRPG collection and he was amazed and took pictures to show his friends.

Then found out his son knew my daughter and my daughter's boyfriend (who is at my house to a degree that I just refer to him as my third kid). Small world and it is hilarious.

So today the programme manager suggested I shouldn't be overly critical of the programme to the auditors. In chat. You couldn't make this up.

Did they CC the auditors as well? That would be a pro move.

My dad passed last week, so I've been prepping the funeral and doing all the paperwork with my wife and mum.

He had been diagnosed terminal last November - a combination of COPD vascular disease and arterial blockage - so not a surprise, but still a shock. We did everything to keep him out of a care home, and the local nurses have been amazing, so he went at home with mum holding his hand. He was 78, a good innings.

We went to see him today - the funeral is on Friday - and he was at peace. Finally free of pain, no wrinkles or frown lines. It's settled us all.

It has been a disapointing summer weatherwise but the last month or so have been warm and beautiful so I was looking forward to spending this week I have off from work at the beach.

The weekend and Monday were great and having moved back to the Coast I missed swimming in the ocean but the past two days the weather has taken a turn.

Hope things get warmer for the rest of the week so I can really enjoy my time off.

Very sorry for your loss. Well done for keeping on with the arrangements, I am sure your family appreciate it. I am glad his passing was peaceful, it is a comfort.
