I don't even have a data plan! I can't even find my connector! OMG! This was a ridiculously complicated process!

Dawww, it is a cute little babby, though.

possum.jpg

As to Unreasonable :ff: Demand 2:

Lihit Lab Aqua Drops Twist Ring Memo Notepad - 2.8" X 4.7" - 5 mm Graph - 40 Sheets - Blue Green - JetPens.com

(They come in a lot of different colors. That is the color to get for me.)

Kokuyo Tidbit Free Cut Memo Pad - A7 (4.1" X 2.9") - 5 mm Graph - 80 sheets - JetPens.com

I kind of like the Maruman Mnemosyne book, too, but I would never use it because I don't like writing on lumpy watercolor paper.

I just kind of don't like the Moleskines because they're expensive and you can't tear pages out, so I feel like I need to be careful to only put important things in them instead of the dumb stuff I actually write down, so I want little memo sized notebooks where I can remove pages I want to throw away, at least, and ideally refill with new paper, and is not just some shitty thing that disintegrates before you're even done using it.

I DON'T THINK THOSE ARE WEIRD OR UNREASONABLE REQUESTS and I don't understand why every time I want something specific, I end up having to order it from Japan.

I mean, I don't understand why you have to order them from Japan and then send them to me.

To thank your butt for finally getting the cute possum pic uploaded, I am sharing with you a very special notebook system. Oh yeah. It's a system. Behold Circa. Oh sure, you can get the notebooks all put together and good to go. But wait, you say. I don't want to have to buy proprietary refills every time I run out of paper because I run out of paper all the time because most of the stuff I write is inane and/or self-incriminating so I destroy it at the end of business each day. FINE PEA GOD. Just get the Circa hole puncher and put all those piles of scribbed-on-one-side scratch paper to work. What's that? You don't even want to buy the notebook to fill with your own coffee stained pages? So just buy the discs and make your own notebook covers and backs out of doll heads or whatever. You can carve "Twinkle aqua drops jumped into your life&file" on the cover with a soldering gun.

I used to have (still have, actually) a big complicated zippered leather planner, and yes, I did use homemade inserts and pages, customized largely to avoid having those big giant stupid lines for babies and to meet my extremely special and important needs. Oddly, based on a quick forensic examination, it appears I stopped using it abruptly in 1999, the year the Handspring Visor PDA first came out. It's just too big, and those things, I end up fiddling around with them more than I do using them for what I got them for.

At this point, I just want some little sub 3x5 notebook that costs a few bucks at most to write dumb small things in like "math" and grocery lists and single-use phone numbers and other things I really only need in short-short term memory. And a bunch of more pens. To qualify for the free shipping, you understand. Not because I am falling off the pen wagon again or anything. No! Not me! I only need regular pens you can get at the regular grocery store and other regular places! I don't need any fine-nibbed drafting pens in sepia and oxblood. I would just put in any old thing for lulz and free shipping.

And I'm not endorsing anything yet, Bort! I don't even have them!

Having examined the butt picture in closer detail, I can state for the record that I really like possum feet. They're the perfect combination of cute and threatening.

That was only the second not roadkilled possum I've seen, I think. They aren't very speedy, nor are they nervous or skittish that I can tell. That babby wasn't even worried about us crowding at the window 3 feet away chattering and taking pics/vid with our phones, didn't care about the kitty, and after eating all the food took a little drink from the water bowl and actually moseyed off.

We nearly nailed one last night on our road. I was on the verge of getting out of the car to persuade the little bugger to get out of the middle of road before he got run over when he finally ambled over to side of the road. He was just sitting there shinning his beady little eyes at our car.

Pro-tip for marsupials: Playing possum in the middle of the road is not a good survival strategy.

I think opossums only come in mosey or playing flat.

Hiss, they also come in hiss.

Yesterday evening, I stopped by the grocery store on the way home. In the parking lot, I happened to encounter one of my students and her fiancé. So naturally, we each said "Hi" as we passed.

Right after they passed, I heard her fiancé ask who that was, and she told him that I was her Biology teacher. "He looks pretty badass," he replied.


Whaaaa? I mean, I wasn't fighting off a horde of ninjas at the time or anything, so where did that come from?


Maybe it's the beard. Beard = Badass. Is that how it works?:godfry:


Anyway, I'm kind of glad I didn't ruin my badass credentials by bursting into laughter, as I almost did exactly that.

You have a beard. I'm guessing you are above 6' in height. You probably stand up straight and you walk around like you know what you're doing. You also probably look around and also look right at people acknowledging their existence. My advice: You should stoop a little and shuffle your feet.

I'm definitely not above 6 feet, but I've had people who don't know me guess that I have martial arts training because of the way that I move. And I always make a point of making eye contact when I meet and greet people. So maybe that's it.


Still, the whole thing made me want to burst out laughing. (That probably would have come across as a bit rude ...)
