[00:31:02] <Bytram> Fnord666: FYI, we generally try to keep things to one politics story per day. I know the sub queue is, challenging, but I'd like to try and maintain that pacing if we can. I was able to submit a couple stories, will see if I can get another one or two subbed.
[11:16:55] <Bytram> moving to weekend story spacing... 141 minutes (2hr 21min) or so
[11:22:19] <Bytram> okay, that's 5 more stories queued up.. time for me to get ready for work.

[23:46:55] <Bytram> haven't looked at it yet... two stories, I see... might want to merge?
[23:48:07] <Bytram> though referencing separate stories, I think they could stand to be merged anyway as they are bot on the same subject
[23:48:31] <mrpg> ok
[23:48:57] <mrpg> I'll leave you the honor
[23:49:40] <mrpg> i'll do "take a walk on mars"

[23:51:58] <nick> also hey mrpg
[23:52:35] <nick> i have been good, very busy couple of months in the US, got married, now im back in Uruguay again
[23:52:52] <Bytram> married?!!?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[23:53:00] <nick> yup
[23:53:08] <Bytram> that might 'splain your not being 'round here much!
[23:53:21] <Bytram> C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S ! ! ! ! !
[23:53:25] <mrpg> nick: congratulations
[23:53:54] <nick> pretty much, had a lot of stuff to get lined up before coming back out here, still moving forward as planned so far
[23:53:58] <nick> thanks :)
[23:54:03] <mrpg> nick: are you cooking for her?
[23:54:29] <nick> i have been since returning to uruguay
[23:54:46] <Bytram> nice. does she do the dishes/
[23:55:00] <Bytram> s/\//?/
[23:55:01] <exec> <Bytram> nice. does she do the dishes?
[23:55:30] <nick> we split things generally, neither of us has a specific chore list yet :p
[23:55:48] <mrpg> that's good
[23:55:59] <Bytram> ^^^ what he said
[23:56:18] <nick> she has some ocd with cleaning things, so i have to up my game on that stuff
[23:57:01] <Bytram> My experience has been that, as long as both try to bring what they can to support the relationship (rather than trying to get whatever one can *from* it), then things bode very well for the future
[23:57:21] <nick> never thought i'd be in this situation, but for a long time now i knew she was the one
[23:57:50] <Bytram> so happy for you and so very hopeful you can make it work out!
[23:59:02] <nick> it's what i've been working towards for years now, getting this far, stopping me from self-destruction if you know what i mean
[23:59:31] <Bytram> yep, I do -- those were some fun chats back in the day
[23:59:45] <nick> it's been a rather crazy experience, everything that happened in the last few months, and the last year in general
[23:59:55] <nick> making some big leaps to try and build the life i want
