Ran about a mile out in the desert with rifles and a K9 looking for somebody.  On the walk back, a home-invasion-in-progress call comes in, so we have to haul ass back to the vehicles, then drive really, really fast across town to chase some Really Bad Dudes with a stolen truck full of stolen guns.

Ahh, the smell of burning brakes in the autumn air.

Someone called and said they found my cat who's been missing for two and a half weeks!

It's good having him back.

It's the second day of weed being legal in Canada.  I haven't smoked it in quite a while but the prospect of going shopping for some in a government run store was very alluring!  There was a half hour wait to get inside and so the couple ahead of me was amusing themselves by giving "exit interviews" to people as they left.  One guy, looking dazed, said he'd been in there about an hour.  He said "It was like an Apple store!"

And it was!  All kinds of friendly, helpful staff wandering around and explaining where things were, how you ordered, what different things on the sample labelling meant.  You could see and smell all the different products.  They were labelled with percentage of THC and CBD, where they were grown, and descriptions which were a lot like wine descriptions "Pungent earthy smell with rich fruity tones" or "Tantalizing citrus notes".    The staff were very knowledgeable.  They could advise if something gave a light buzz, heavy buzz, back pain relief, etc etc.

I bought 1 gram each of three different kinds. And a purple pipe.  I'm a sucker for all things purple.  They had pre-rolled joints too but they were kind of expensive.  I'm high just on the experience!  :-)

Yeah, mine looks like that :) (in Montreal)

Bohemian Rhapsody was awesome.

I bought my first gun today!

It wasn't the gun in crushing on, but with little kids around, I liked the added grip safety.

My gun crush is a Kimber Micro 380. So expensive though.

I bought the most retarded over-the-top SUV...oh man.  Makes me giggle like a little kid every time I see it.

Excursion 7.3L turbodiesel 4x4 with a 6" lift on 36" ATs.  It's absolutely hilarious.

Not it, but pretty close:

I got a letter from my State's tax commission a couple weeks ago informing me that there had been a mistake made several years back and I was never issued my state tax refund for that year and would be mailing me a check within the next 30 days.  I thought "huh..well, that's cool" and kept it in mind.

Said check showed up in my mail, today...with a twin.  I was about to call my tax commission to let them know they had shipped me double the listed refund when I looked over the initial letter once again..and unfolded the bottom part I had failed to notice was folded and saw that, nope: the money was mine.

Happy birthday to me.

Right now...nothing.

I'm too much in the mindset of "something's wrong, here" because my story got weird after I deposited my checks.  I went to toss everything into my checking account when I noticed that it was reading a surplus from what it should have been...by over 5k.  The teller then informed me that I received a payment from the Military for said amount..and I'm not sure why.

There's been some discrepancies with my pay for a few months and I filed a reimbursement for some travel I did earlier in the year..but I didn't think it'd all equal out to that much.  I need to call my finance office and find out what the heck happened.

I'm not used to having financial windfalls come my way.  I'm in a "bunker down and prepare for the inevitable storm that life's going to throw at you as soon as your guard is down because this is an obvious trick" sort of mood.

Wait so you just got three major paydays from the government in a short span? It's hush money for that thing you saw you weren't supposed to see. Don't question it or you'll end up "committing suicide" or dying tragically in a burglary gone wrong.

Seeing:

Also, if we were making a recipe for an existing item, would that be something we'd use a portion of our master-crafting quota on? Because unless that item is cool from an OOC perspective, most folks won't want to spend that valuable commodity doing that.

If it doesn't use that quota, then Bushranger, I'd say additional recipes to make the same item aren't a bad investment.

I see you Venomz!

Ohh, I like it.  It has pretty great reviews too. 
I usually have a tricky time racking the slide but the general consensus with this one, at least according to the reviews Iíve seen, is that itís nice and manageable to use.
