Re: Not Dead Yet
Isn't it level 0 at this point?

And I find it funny that Hamble announces the impending babe, and then Charan follows up.

Precocious.

And didn't want Hamble to have all the fun :)

I confess I do have thoughts of reviving it, at least long enough to finish up some story-lines that were very close to major turning points (yours included).  But for the next 8 months, it's off the table -- I have two major trials coming up -- one in St. Louis, starting mid-October, that is expected to last 6 weeks1, then after the holidays we move into prep/trial in lovely Martinez, California that is expected to be as long as 16 weeks.  I still have hopes of that latter one settling before trial, but until it happens, I have to assume it will not.

So we know what Hamble/Charan have been up to.  What have the rest of you been up to?  We had the kitchen remodeled, hosted the annual goose dinner (and celebrated the spouse's 50th birthday), I made a fruitcake (and yes, I actually LIKE fruitcake), we adopted a cat, to the annoyance of the dog, I marched in D.C., then chaperoned my daughter's 8th-grade class trip there a few months later, I've been to Nashville and had hot chicken, ran a charity 5k ("ran" -- given how slow I am, we always use air-quotes for my "running" in my house), traveled for business to Boston, Las Vegas, Kansas City, Chicago, Austin, L.A and Orlando (those last three in the same week), and we visited my parents and sister in Tennessee for the eclipse (sister's house was in the path of totality), which the Boy managed to capture on his phone.  Kids just started school (the Girl started high school, the Boy is in 8th grade), and things are pretty okay here in Bensalem, outside Philadelphia.

I also note that among Austin, Nashville, St. Louis and Kansas City, I've had some AWESOME barbecue in the past six months.

1This is a do-over of one that ended in a mistrial two weeks in, in June when the Supreme Court handed down a decision that threw a monkey wrench into the works.  June in St. Louis SUCKS, but I did get to go to the top of the Arch, and at least I didn't have to spend any of July (much less August in St. Louis.

Re: Not Dead Yet
Well. I've drove, and drove, and drove. Left my previous employer because I believed they were going to be bought out or go under, a year and a half later they got bought out, new company better pay and benefits, drove, and, drove, and drove (can you tell I'm a trucker yet?) Now baby girl is in a gifted middle school (sniff) and boy #2 is on his second year at college.

Re: Not Dead Yet
Not much happening here, other than my wife and I took a trip down to northern GA.  We went to see if it looks like a place we'd like to retire to in a few years.  We definitely loved the mountain views, as well as the people we talked to, so most likely will be looking either for a house or some land to build when the time comes.

Re: Not Dead Yet
I currently live in New Jersey (moved here March 2016) and am no longer with the Gnome Illusionist (though the split was amicable and we're still good friends)

My current companion is a big ol' Bronze dragon with Copper tendencies that had almost all his treasure stolen from his ex-wife. But, we're both learning how to be with someone that wants to help just as much as the other and it's been going rather well.

(A picture of us before we were dating and just at a LARP, but it's still a nice picture:
https://www.knightrealms.com/c...nd-illana-24844.html)

I have a nice steady job that I have been in since February and life is pretty comfortable at the moment.

Finished off student loans and pretending I can save up enough money for a house.

Um.. I turn 30 next year?

Re: Not Dead Yet
Still living in London, it's been a year and a half now and I'm wondering what the next move will be. Back to the mainland? Push for the girlfriend to chase a job at her company's headquarters in Denmark ? Think laterally and move 90 east ? London is fine short term, but i don't want to be around when brexit hits the fan.

We've just moved to the Barbican, which is a great location and the flat, though tiny, is really nice.

I'm still trying to fix London housing crisis with urban renewal, social housing and densification, but it turns out it's a bit more complicated than I anticipated...

I'm just going to take a vacation to Thailand for now, see how things work when I'm back.

Looking forward to rolling dice again with you all!

Re: Not Dead Yet
Merry Christmas everyone.  Best wishes for a warm and wonderful holiday season for you.

I wish to formally confirm that we have the pleasure of sharing our first Christmas with Alexis, a very delightful traveller to the world, and enthralled with daddy's readings of fantasy novels (and being a cutey more than prepared to pull a blanket over eyes on chapters that go too long into nap time).

Merry Christmas to those as celebrate it.  Happy New Year to those on the Gregorian calendar.  For those who find this time of year difficult, I wish you thoughts of spring.

Congratulations to the family on the arrival of Baby Alexis.  May the diapers remain leak-proof!

Re: Not Dead Yet - Alexis enjoying 2018
I was never in a thread with you, so I can be quite unbiased when I say that she is an adorable baby! Congratulations!

Mine are all teens now, and while I don't really want to go back to babies, it is a beautiful journey. Good luck.

And Happy New Years to all!

Hoppy Easter friends!

She remains very strong-lunged and helping train her parents, but waking up happy, and little giggles and even some deeper chortles.  Oh yeah... Daddy in trouble with those laughs.
