I really hope you include some unsolicited advice, as well.

Oh yes. Yes.

Etiquette guides disgust me.

Some friends of mine got married today and I wasn't invited to the wedding. I'm cool with that, I think weddings are a personal affair that have a lot of factors to consider in terms of cost, venue, family size, closeness of relationship, etc. I feel like we should be grateful for being invited rather than stilted if we aren't. I was invited for an after party and I'm trying to figure out what the custom is for gift giving for an after party. All I can find is a bunch of discussion forum questions where people say that after parties are tacky and your guests will feel insulted for not being invited to the event. It's fucking gross.

Met Permagos today.

So Tucson now has Zenpatista, Permagos, myself (and associated related spags), choppas, and Frank the Bastard.

You will all come to Tucson.  I've told you about this.

Tucson is the unfathomably large void that the universe is expanding into.

The thing is, even if you don't go anywhere, you will eventually end up in Tucson.

This.

It's worth noting that, as we speak, Tucson is being annihilated by the worst thunderstorm in years.

In Pirates of the Caribbean, Jack gets this black spot on his hand that attracts the Kraken.
I picture the Tucson as being like that Kraken. And everyone has the black spot.

Roger is nicer in person than on the forum.  Also even more talkative.

well, i seem to be having a small emotional spiral and none of the people i usually talk to when this happens are picking up their phones. This will be an interesting night.

Feel free to vent here if you think it will help.

I kinda like strep throat. You can't be edgy or depressed  when all you do is lay in bed cursing the pain.

Weird. I've been looking through the members list some people havr websites or blogs attached to them that are both discordian and active.

Yet they haven't been back here in over 3 years.
