another pleasant pokemon go update

When I woke up last night to get ready for work, I opened up Pokemon Go like I normally do and was surprised to receive a notification for a nearby raid event starting... at a brand new gym down the street that was not there when I went to sleep (and it was unclaimed, so guess who hopped on that shit).

This is not the first new gym I've seen since the gym update, since I've noticed that several former pokestops in the towns I regularly visit have been turned into gyms with the update, but these were all transformed when the old gym system was down for the rework. This just popped up yesterday.

On the way to work, I was also met with several new pokestops that had similarly popped up on the trails, as well as another new gym at one of the overlooks that, again, was not there earlier, (and again was also unclaimed, but it's in a service dead zone and I was unable to claim it because my service wigged out).

Apparently, Ingress had gotten an update that added new portals, and since Pokemon Go's maps are a direct import from Ingress's, that means that Pokemon Go got some new stops and gyms too. Which is pretty fucking cool.

Also I thought I had a pattern figured out as to when raid battles spawned, and the gym closest to me seems to spawn them every twenty-six hours... while the one down the road (on the map, it's the active raid with the Wheezing) has spawned twice in the last twenty-four hours, so maybe they each have their own individual spawn rates? I just evolved a Wheezing the other day so I really have no reason to walk down and do that raid battle, so I'm waiting for the one behind my house to hatch and I'm going to do that one. I only get one free raid pass a day and I really don't want to buy another one.

A while ago I mentioned a teacher at my school who told students that myself and my colleague couldn't teach. Today, a formal investigation was opened into it. It had to be done on the proper paperwork with various legal terms used and I felt like I was in court or something. My colleague also had to be interviewed. Strange experience. Surprisingly unsettling.
Then I had a dreadful lesson with Year 10 this afternoon. The kids were really disengaged.
Last week I was feeling really inspired, looking forward to working with the new employee in my department and implementing some new stuff; today - I'm counting down to the holidays. 3 and a half weeks to go. : /

I'm really happy with these shorts, Finnistre or something. They're apparently a British brand but made in Portugal. I sometimes worry Portugal is the sweatshop of Europe, but the price would indicate otherwise. I got them on clearance, thinking it was the normal, reasonable price, and then I saw they are actually way more expensive. Cool. They are long enough that they sometimes even cover my embarrassing knees. And they are kind of dressy and kind of stretchy. Do Not Tumble Dry. Fancy.

I wore my surf shirt today from Wellen Surf Co and a pink American Giant San Francisco shirt (I wanted to make the Cali kids feel comfy)

Went for brown shoes (San Antonio Shoemakers) and brown belt (RPMWest, RIP), blue purple and grey socks because I don't have much variety to choose from in short socks (Pact fair trade organic cotton socks grown/made in India) and don't know where to get any more

One of today's "On This Day" notifications on Facebook was the first status I wrote on this computer two years ago.  That made me a bit anxious, as my desktops have lasted about two years on average before they either become obsolete or something bad befalls them.  That compounded another anxiety of mine, that I would lose the comments I've saved on my desktop computer that I sometimes recycle for blog posts.  A recent event made that anxiety more acute; the closing of The Archdruid Report and The Well of Galabes, complete with the loss of all my comments there.  I have all of them from January 2015 to the present saved, but all of them from 2013 and 2014, including some that I thought needed re-examination, are all lost.  I don't want that to happen to the rest because of computer failure, so I'm saving them here in reverse chronological order, beginning with the ones from May 2017.  Most are from Kunstler's blog, but there are also comments from Booman Tribune and The Well of Galabes.

So, at long last, the trailer for the Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan movie, “The Foreigner” (directed by the man who made Goldeneye and Casino Royale) has been unveiled.

As a YouTube commentator wagged, it’s like an Asian Taken!

From the trailer, it looks pretty cool with at least one classic Jackie Chan move remixed, but a couple of things strike me:

– The film is famous for having blown up a London bus on a Sunday afternoon in Lambeth Bridge, alarming a lot of people nearby who didn’t realise it was a film stunt. Given all the effort they went into filming that stunt, it’s surprising it’s not in the trailer. Instead, it’s a more generic urban bombing that appears in the trailer. Maybe they decided to drop that sequence?

– This is probably just me, but I’m just not ready to see Pierce Brosnan playing the bad admin guy.

What do you think?

Well, we're in Tokyo! The travel agent is looking to reschedule our missed tour to one of our free days, and I'd the airport shuttle gets through traffic quick enough we might just be able to get to out thing tonight. Which is looking less and less likely. Which is too bad, but we'll see what we can adjust :)

Yday Florencia and Melina came home and since we were kinda bored they painted a strand of my hair with blue color. First we made it blonde then we painted with blue.
I don't think I will be blonde ever but the color was pretty nice on me, girls liked it and they said it looks honey instead yellow.
The blue strand is very nice and not flashy, it's hard to see it on my head because I have so much hair! I like it

pics arent good cuz it was at night and light is bad

Mike got back the box he sent me 6 month ago with the make up he got for me. I told him better he keeps it and he gives me next time we be together. He could not help and he shows me the make up he bought. I didn't want he shows me because I like the surprises but he was so excited about the gift!! I can't wait to try it 

The eyelash mascaras are blue and purple

Quiet day and then shopping

Work was very quiet, no school which is silly cause the last day of school isn't until the 28th, so why have a day off on the 26th? But that's what they did. So we were very quiet indeed.

After work the FWiB called, and while we talked I made my way to 20th Ave, where I met up with [personal profile] mashfanficchick and her mother. We went to the Broadway Mall, somewhere on Long Island, first eating dinner at Blazes, a pizza place, and then shopping in the mall. I got two pairs of shoes, one for the wedding and one just because. I'll probably use them for that trip too. I also got an Old Navy flag tee shirt.

Then came home and found that Bjorn has managed to get his collar off somewhere in the apartment and I don't know where. Grr.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. Friends, including on-line friends, because it's Herschel's birthday.

3. Pizza.

4. Shoes gotten.

5. No school.

6. Wildflowers on the way to work.

Almost 1 week without write .
Last week my brain got burned at work, but nothing has ruined my mood. I don't feel anxiety since 10 days... I sound like an addict with withdrawal syndrome lol

On Saturday I went to a small concert in a bar. My dad and one of his sons have a band (different bands) and they both participated in the concert. The music was good. It was the first time I hear them. Some friends went with me and it could be a nice night but my sister decided to come and got kinda drunk. I had to drag her home. That is why I don't spend so much time with family.

I bought shoes. Some military leather boots for every day which I can wear with jeans, satin high heels from Italy which are very comfortable for walking, and others high heels for the parties I hardly ever go

Before I started Dragons of Spring Dawning a few weeks ago, I wrote up a batch of Thoughts about Caramon and Raistlin, among other things, and then while I was reading the first few chapters I wrote a bunch more notes that I haven't posted about yet. At the time I was writing them, I sort of felt like I was reaching a bit in my conclusions, but now I've gotten to chapter 15, which is the most detailed version of Raistlin's Test so far, and wow, I was not reaching at all, wow.

Mon Dec 26th: What has brought you joy over the past year? Pick three things/people and tell us about them. (2014 December Blogging Meme: NaNoBloPoMo Dec 2014)
1. School: i enjoy being able to take classes for free and i feel comfortable with a lot of the staff and students.

2. Starting all the podcast discussion groups: it's just so much fun running discussions and it helps me keep up with canons.

3. Volunteering: I'm really happy with my volunteer job at the shelter. I always feel accomplished and it's nice having cats to socialize.

 I got distracted playing a game last night and didn't post. Oops. 

Sparkly arrived safely for eir work trip, got eir employee ID and everything, and has been busily filling out very boring forms. But ey tells me that the people running the training are very nice, and ey has met some of eir future coworkers. Ey was issued a phone, so now I have eir new work phone number (which I am not to call unless it's an emergency.)

My hand is healing up well from Zinfandel's accidental attack. I spent most of yesterday morning with my thumb taped to my hand, to keep myself from using it and stretching the injured skin, and that seems to have helped.
