  2. Things That Make You Happy

    Double retirement parties for Mrs. Prof yesterday. She had her official retirement lunch at a Mexican food place. Lots of people attended, including myself and my son (who drove me over there). After work, her contacts at a major international shipping company (that will remain nameless) took her out to a little German/Austrian food place near our neighborhood. Just three representatives, her, and I attended. She got some very nice gifts from the second group, and some very delicious food from the restaurant. Great dinner reminiscing, with her at the center and me just kind of guiding the reps through the best parts of the unfamiliar meal (case in point: not much sauerkraut was left at the end of the night). Mrs. Prof enjoyed the evening immensely. I can't say exactly how long she's worked there, unfortunately. She (and I) started in the summer of 1982, but with seasonal employment, layoffs, and other interruptions to her service time, I can't calculate her exact time off the top of my head. Just let it be said that she worked there for a long time, and when the end of the month rolls around, she's going to reap the benefits.

  4. Story Wednesday September 19, 2018

    Well, Lucy could actually be honest about her feelings to Diane. But of course, those things don't happen in EGS unless there's something like an attack by a Spider Vampire, or getting invited to Grace's next birthday party.. Or maybe a mysterious floating woman telling Lucy to do it. Adrian obviously has to come into this story in a big way, but when is another question. It's not established whether either Diane or Lucy is taking one of Adrian's classes this semester. Pandora could advise Lucy at any time from her return, but I don't see her up to marking Lucy or anyone else for awhile.Jerry reset during the last spring break, and he didn't show up as Zeus until New Year's. Pandora's "refresh" should make her recovery faster, but it's only been three days, and the last comic in Sister 3 took place at "an unknown time."
  5. The gravity of the situation apparently got to his pants.
  6. Mr. Verres should know enough about magic to know this is temporary and it can be reverted. That means he decided to stay girl for a while just to make Lavender happy.

    Given that they wanted to and STILL want to murder me, my wife, my father, my brother, his children and more other people than I can readily count, I do not feel inclined to spare their tender feelings.
  9. NP September 10, 2018

    Yes. That's fear. Is fear a cultural contribution? In case of Nazis, I think saying they upgraded fear to art might make sense. So, this would be pretty hard question to answer. I wouldn't say so, but note that I'm not Nazi, not even expert on them, so my opinion is not important for this question. Oh, definitely not. They don't deserve it. Although that might be politically incorrect thing to say ... But doing what Shriver recommends and completely ignore those people who may be harmed is no solution either. At least not correct one. Extremes are rarely correct solution.
  10. Story Wednesday September 19, 2018

    There is also the fact that some people are naturally suited to be distance runners, and some are a much better fit for short-distance sprints. Yes. And if you are the short-distance sprint one, you need to learn pacing. Specifically, you need to learn to do the sprint at the END of the mile, not at the start of it.
  11. Things That Are Just Annoying

    It's true as long as you are bigger and heavier than anyone else on the road. You would not believe how safe I feel in my Leopard II. Oh sure, I hear this occasional crunchy noise as I drive but I don't think it is the engine, I check it coming back home and it seems fine.
  12. NP September 10, 2018

    Yes. That's fear. Is fear a cultural contribution? Am I unfairly representing Nazis when I say of them that people feared and hated them? Should I feel concerned about their feelings? But doing what Shriver recommends and completely ignore those people who may be harmed is no solution either.
  13. Things That Are Just Annoying

    Repeated studies have shown that making people in a vehicle safer, results in the driver of that vehicle driving in a more hazardous manner. (On the average, of course - not necessarily true of every individual.) People tout the safety of driving big SUVs...

    While I'm sure this can't be called sittings, I think there are ways to sit even worse. Also, Grace is a shapeshifter, that might help ...
  15. Story Wednesday September 19, 2018

    There is also the fact that some people are naturally suited to be distance runners, and some are a much better fit for short-distance sprints. I read a story of three guys, college roommates and good friends. Two of them went out for a mile run every morning. A girlfriend asked why the third never went with them. Laughter. "You see that pole down at the end of the block? He'll get there faster than you would believe possible. Now you see the pole down at the end of the NEXT block? You'll get there before he will." "Also, he'll never get there."

    I recall people calling it long before this storyline.
  17. Story Friday September 14, 2018

    I had completely forgotten about Principal Incompetent. How's he doing now? But yeah, considering the other option, Mamase probably decided on the lessor of two evils.

  20. Story Friday September 14, 2018

    Maybe the fact that Adrian had the school set up with protective wards was a factor, she may not like Adrian, but at least the school has far better security that one who's principal would rather spend money on murals than on a working fire suppression system. ... right. That's good point. She may easily expect Nanase will be attacked - and she WAS, by Not-tengu, although that was outside school - and she likely consider Adrian's protection worth the risk he will teach Nanase magic, especially before Nanase started her own magic study.

    Hahahahahahahaha. Have you ever tried to read it? I defy you to read even the first half of it without giving up. No and I suspect neither did the ones who attempts to forbid it. That IS some power. Ok, enough with the murder distraction and back to original discussion ... Internet makes easy to get information, but it won't make easy to understand. In fact, you might easily end in trap of repeating someone's else misunderstanding, especially if language barrier prevents you communicating directly with people from that foreign culture. Obviously, you should try. Spend some effort trying to understand and be polite. But you may still fail. And it's not fair that the outrage may be same no matter how much effort you made. Not writing about other cultures at all is not solution.
  23. Story Friday September 14, 2018

    You know, it begs the question of why Mamase sent her daughter there if she wanted her family to avoid all contact with Raven. That's why I think Raven wouldn't dare. If Mrs. Kitsune though that Raven would dare to teach Nanase magic, she would make steps to prevent that, like sending Nanase to the other school. Yes. On the other hand, this would also make sense. Mrs. Kitsune is complicated.
  24. Story Wednesday September 19, 2018

    Not only she's that fast ... she's also not tired. It's like relaxing speed for her. To be fair, the same applies to almost EVERYONE. You missed the fact that they were NOT outed yet. ... yeah, no wonder she's getting grumpier and grumpier. She may not know the details but she's certainly aware Diane has other ways to spend free time than with her. And it will likely get worse, with Adrian Raven ... AND Diane has very good reason to NOT just try to bring her in. Lucy's best chance is getting magic mark somewhere ...
  25. Story Friday September 14, 2018

    Some of the words Mama Kitsune may have had with Adrian might have been "My daughter will be attending this school at some point, teach her history, math, spanish for all I care, but magic is off limits even if she happens to show 'great potential'."
  26. Story Friday September 14, 2018

    In spite of her personal feelings for the man, Mrs Kitsune may still respect Adrian's ability as a educator. Remember, she is far more aware of Nanase's abilities and activities than she admits to her daughter. Perhaps putting Nanase in contact with people like Adrian and Sensei Greg is a deliberate choice? Just because Mrs Kitsune has some magical awareness and ability does not necessarily mean that she is a good magical teacher. And by stating objections, she had given Nanase a way out if her daughter wasn't serious about the esoteric. Noriko's plan was for Tedd to be her apprentice, but she was ready to leave her child when that wand failed to detect magical ability. Mrs Kitsune may have decided that she needed to be a mother to her children and let others be their teachers.
