old gaming group is still talking smack abt me a month after i left. i'll let you connect the dots as to why i left in the first place. my bf is defending them because "i've always gamed with them". thanks, buddy.

dolores o'riordan died yesterday.

2018 Makes Early Bid for 'Worst Year in Revent Memory' is my current headline of the month.


Sorry to hear about all that. Hope things get better for you.

I'm really sorry to hear about your comic book store, though. I hate hearing about any small bookstore of any kind closing. I buy all my books online now (and most of the time read ebooks), but I love going into a local, non-chain bookstore.

as a bookie, you definitely get it - there's something about actual, paper books that feels good.

they're redirecting us to 138 comics, which apparently was started up by some old customers/friends of Villainous Lair. i don't want to go anywhere else, but if i have to, i'm gonna support these guys as much as i can.

Those dumb and exclusionary pink knitted hats that the marchers wear. :roll:

I have so many friends who wear them proudly and I don't know how to tell them how those hats symbolize their exclusion of women of color and trans women.

TV commercials.......just send in $19 a month to help us.

Pretty tired of the ASPCA repeatedly showing us the sad, abused puppies and kittens to urge our donations.

Maybe they could learn a thing or two from the Shriners who are asking for the same $19 but at least they show us some upbeat success stories of the kids!

Now if they could just get rid of those hats!

Buy one for $40
or
Get two for $60

I don't want a 50% discount on the second one, I don't need a second one, I don't want a second one.
I don't care if it's a soda at the local 7-11 or a pair of shoes at Skechers.

How 'bout just selling me one for $30????

I do dislike the whole "Buy 1, get one 50% off." Can I just get 25% off the one? Oh well - I usually just buy one and forego the "deal."

You wear Skechers?

The whole 'get 50% off the 2nd if you buy one' really only works at restaurants when two of us eat out. Then they're pretty handy. ;)
