    I had this super intense dream about Match Cut last night.

    Why? I have no idea.

    Hi.
    Hey Mara. I think I still follow you on Twitter. Welcome back. This is MadMan btw I got tired of the old account.
    Blog!

    It's a luscious mix of words and tricks
    That let us bet when you know we should fold
    On rocks I dreamt of where we'd stepped
    And of the whole mess of roads we're now on

    Srsly guys I have made it this far in my life without figuring out what exactly Discord is, so I tried to look it up and I'm still confused
    ...and the milk's in me.

    I have it on my phone but I think a lot of us have it on our computers.

    Basically just a platform for private chat servers.

    But Duke and Mal have been organizing semi-regular group watches of movies on there and it's been super cool! I think the last one was Saturday Night Fever about a week ago.

    Thanks! I was under the impression you needed an account with a gaming system, but it doesn't look like it. How would I get an invite to the MC stuff?

    I'll get Duke to send you an invite.

    I'm not too well versed in it either so I think it has to be him who invites you.

    House hunting is frustrating. Find the right build, right price, and you can reach out the window and touch the neighbors house [fuck that]. Find a smaller house with an acre of space [thats in such bad shape it needs burned down] and it's 3x the price. 18 empty acres 30 miles from here, 175k. 18 empty acres here, 720k.

    Get a fucking grip, housing market.

    I hope it works out for you Skitch. I don't think I'll ever make enough to even afford a house.

    I know its a funny haha meme how the rules are not the same for the grandkids as it was for me, but it absolutely infuriates me how I'm basically called an asshole for parenting my kids the way I was parented BY MY FUCKING PARENTS.

    I feel for ya, man. I'm generally a laid back guy, pretty unflappable, but when someone starts disparaging my parental skills, the rage comes quick. I mean c'mon man, it's not like I'm letting them shoot up heroin in the living room (they need to do that out back near the garbage cans, don't want anyone stepping on used needles).

    On a happier note (and completely different topic to boot), I just bought four tickets to see a show at Red Rocks with the wife and kiddos in July when we're road tripping through the area. I am absolutely giddy at the thought of seeing a show at my #1 bucket list concert venue).

    LIKE PROPER JUNKIES.

    And when I say, hey, thems was the rules for me, they get defensive and accuse me of attacking them for trying to just be friendly neighborhood grands and what a jerk I am for even mentioning it.

    And we're not talking giant vagueries here...

    Me: hey. boy. stop throwing checkers around the room.
    grand: oh youre too sensitive
    me: its annoying
    grand: boys need to be allowed to be boys
    me: HES EIGHT. NOT THREE.
    grand: whatever. *rolls eyes, sighs, throws hands up

    I would never dare say anything to anyone about how they raise their children unless they're doing something that's so obviously wrong or dangerous.

    I don't have kids, so anything I say on the subject should be disregarded immediately. But if a parent were to constantly allow their child to do annoying things... how would that be productive? At least go be annoying in another room. It's not a good situation if we don't like each other. Of course grandparents are going to have a higher threshold for annoying behavior. They don't have to be a parent 24/7. I love being an uncle, and I also love being able to leave if everything goes to shit.
