[04:48:32] <Fnord666> evening all!
[04:50:59] <TheMightyBuzzard> Fnord666, evenin. i think they all done went to bed cept me.
[04:52:01] <Fnord666> evening TMB. How goes it?
[04:52:46] <TheMightyBuzzard> goes pretty good. doing some light christmas shopping for the roomie's kids.
[04:53:14] <Fnord666> That's cool.
[04:53:30] <Fnord666> Best to not wait until the crowds are nuts
[04:53:45] <TheMightyBuzzard> think i can get away with like $30 plus shipping for both them and their dad this year.
[04:54:14] <Fnord666> even better
[04:55:08] <TheMightyBuzzard> i got both kids hooked on anime so i'm gonna get em Bleach and Naruto Funko Pop big-headed action figure things for their desks.
[04:55:30] <TheMightyBuzzard> and their dad's a huge honkin nerd as well so he gets a Deadpool one.
[04:55:31] <Fnord666> funko pop always works
[04:55:37] <Fnord666> perfect!
[04:56:05] <TheMightyBuzzard> nod nod. he eyes them every time we go in gamestop so it's a safe bet.
[04:56:31] <TheMightyBuzzard> we can't take the kids in there, mind ya. they'd riot when we didn't buy them ALL OF THE THINGS

[04:57:04] <Fnord666> yep, that can be dangerous
[04:57:15] <Fnord666> their eyes get real wide....
[04:57:44] <TheMightyBuzzard> yeah. that's generally all kids in the toy aisle but the girl... man she's something else.
[04:58:13] <TheMightyBuzzard> we was driving past a fucking RUG STORE and she started trying to talk us into stopping and getting her a rug.
[04:58:30] <Fnord666> Too funny
[04:59:15] <TheMightyBuzzard> you could take that child to a machinists tool convention and she'd want at least half the stuff there.
[04:59:32] -!- nick has quit [Ping timeout: 246 seconds]
[04:59:39] <Fnord666> to be fair so would I
[05:00:05] <TheMightyBuzzard> well yeah. we'd at least have a vague idea what they did though.
[05:00:10] <Fnord666> true
[05:00:18] <Fnord666> how old is she?
[05:00:30] <TheMightyBuzzard> ten. child cracks me up something fierce.
[05:00:49] <Fnord666> I bet. They're a hoot at that age.
[05:01:57] <Fnord666> Most are anyway.
[05:02:13] <TheMightyBuzzard> the "wants all the things" bit is her funniest trait but she also sings in the shower. not like to herself. full on stadium singing. i can hear her at the other end of the house with a tv show playing.
[05:02:49] <Fnord666> but can she carry a tune?
[05:03:06] <TheMightyBuzzard> thankfully, yes. she been in choir for 3-4 years now.
[05:03:31] <Fnord666> there you go then. my daughter still does that and she's 18
[05:03:46] <TheMightyBuzzard> what she sings though, you just never know. could be christmas tunes in july or it could be "Re: Your Brains" by jonathan coulton
[05:04:51] <Fnord666> I usually hear a mix of whatever they are working on in choir and anime theme songs
[05:05:22] <TheMightyBuzzard> should put a requests list up on the shower curtain
[05:05:27] <Fnord666> with some three days grace tossed in occasionally
[05:05:38] <Fnord666> I should!
[05:06:07] <TheMightyBuzzard> or just write it on the shower wall with a whiteboard marker
[05:06:29] * Fnord666 looks around for a marker
[05:06:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> think ima get little bit really into joan jett this year. this world needs more rocker chicks.
[05:07:17] <TheMightyBuzzard> plus it'll improve the playlist quite a lot
[05:07:32] <Fnord666> yep
[05:08:33] <TheMightyBuzzard> hows things your way?
[05:09:36] <Fnord666> Good. Weather has been mild so far. Business is steadu rolling through the holidays
[05:09:43] <Fnord666> s/steadu/steady/
[05:09:45] <exec> <Fnord666> Good. Weather has been mild so far. Business is steady rolling through the holidays
[05:09:53] <Fnord666> yourself?
[05:11:21] <TheMightyBuzzard> weather's downright nice. i like 70s in december quite a bit. business is well enough. getting rolling again finally.
[05:11:48] <Fnord666> That's good.
[05:12:24] <TheMightyBuzzard> not gonna break into any painful tax brackets this year but it ain't all that easy starting from scratch in a new area.
[05:13:07] <Fnord666> Definitely not. Good to hear things are picking up
[05:14:22] <Fnord666> Did you switch fields or locations?
[05:14:59] <TheMightyBuzzard> locations. OK to TN.
[05:15:23] <Fnord666> got it
[05:15:27] <TheMightyBuzzard> fucked off after i got here for a couple years. burning through savings.
[05:15:58] <TheMightyBuzzard> worth it though. these are some good years to not have anything better to do than go fishing.
[05:16:45] <Fnord666> Now I'm a bit jealous
[05:17:02] <Fnord666> That would be nice
[05:17:21] <TheMightyBuzzard> yeah. not something that's really viable if you have a wife and/or kids though.
[05:17:34] <Fnord666> no, that is definitely true.
[05:18:01] <TheMightyBuzzard> they get crabby if you look like you're having too much fun.
[05:18:14] <Fnord666> :)
[05:19:31] <TheMightyBuzzard> the wife in particular would have a good argument. your savings are her savings too.
[05:19:35] <Fnord666> My wife's father was an avid fisherman so she's wise to "I don't want to, but Joe insists we go fishing today"
[05:19:44] <TheMightyBuzzard> damn
[05:20:18] <Fnord666> On the other hand it meant he and I got along just fine
[05:20:31] <TheMightyBuzzard> has she caught on to the "i need to put the boat in the water to keep the seals from dry rotting" one yet?
[05:21:27] <Fnord666> Not yet. :)
[05:21:56] <TheMightyBuzzard> #yt i'm gonna miss her
[05:21:56] <MrPlow> https://www.youtube.com
[05:23:08] <Fnord666> Cool. Hadn't heard that one before
[05:23:18] <TheMightyBuzzard> it always gives me a chuckle
[05:25:09] <TheMightyBuzzard> one of the fun bits about being a guy: we may acquire a refined sense of humor as we mature but we don't have to throw out the low-brow bits like women is expected to.
[05:26:06] <Fnord666> I'm not sure if they toss them out or are just better about not sharing them in mixed company.
[05:27:27] <TheMightyBuzzard> either way, they miss out on a lot of fun
[05:27:34] <Fnord666> yep
[05:28:54] <TheMightyBuzzard> 10yo still thinks it's the height of comedy to blast out a truck fart. won't last that much longer so i'm enjoying it while i can.
[05:29:55] <Fnord666> too funny
[05:30:36] <Fnord666> I see your point and it is unfortunate
[05:32:12] <TheMightyBuzzard> we're gettin both of em trained up in martial arts too, so i'm REALLY not looking forward to PMS arriving.
[05:32:51] <Fnord666> Cool. What are they studying and how old is the boy?
[05:33:49] <TheMightyBuzzard> he's 12. tae kwon do right now. brazilian jiu jitsu next year after they get their black belts.
[05:34:30] <Fnord666> nice combination
[05:34:38] <TheMightyBuzzard> should be february or so if they keep the practice up.
[05:35:07] <Fnord666> That will be quite an accomplishment
[05:35:19] <TheMightyBuzzard> one to look pretty while you get points and one to hurt people.
[05:36:26] <TheMightyBuzzard> the boy's highly suited to bjj in my opinion. he's been balling up on people's heads like an angry coon since he could walk.
[05:37:15] * Fnord666 laughs out loud at the mental image
[05:40:21] <TheMightyBuzzard> he got a touch of something on the autistic scale and adhd to boot. all mashed together it makes him really bad at picking up on social cues like there being such a thing as personal space.
[05:41:14] <Fnord666> Well, nobody's perfect.
[05:42:28] <TheMightyBuzzard> in this case it mostly means he's had a tough time figuring out WHY you shouldn't jump up on anyone you like's head and wool it around by the ears as a form of playing.
[05:44:40] <Fnord666> I could see where that might set some people back a bit
[05:46:53] <TheMightyBuzzard> i been makin some progress on it cause it annoys me way more than it annoys his dad. figure junior high will take care of the rest of it.
[05:47:30] <Fnord666> I expect so
[05:47:44] <TheMightyBuzzard> 7th grade or so you gotta quit acting like a little dingus and start being cool so the girls might want to show you their boobs.
[05:49:16] <Fnord666> Yep, that sounds about right.
[05:50:28] <TheMightyBuzzard> anyway, time i was heading to bed. weekend or not i'm getting up at the same time in the morning so as not to throw my body off and make mondays suck any harder than they need to.
[05:50:59] <Fnord666> Sounds like a good idea. Take care and pleasant dreams.
[05:51:08] <Fnord666> I should head there myself.
[05:51:56] <Fnord666> Good noght TMB
[05:52:10] <Fnord666> s/noght/night/
[05:52:12] <exec> <Fnord666> Good night TMB
