    Heh, same here, problem wise.

    People constantly complaining or calling in to work about how their schedule's are wrong or that wasn't there job to do, and all that jazz.

    Amazing how a good workout can clear your brain.

    Perfect timing for a day off work, given the circumstances.

    Little bit bored now though.
    Yes, I know the voices aren't real. But they do have some VERY good ideas....

    So, I am now about halfway through 'Sign of the Unicorn,' and enjoying the books a lot.

    I had forgotten what a monumental badass Benedict of Amber was.

    When trying to figure out who was behind the conspiracy to take the throne, the family unanimously agreed that it couldn't be Benedict because if he had ever wanted the throne then he would have just taken it and nobody in Amber would have been able to stop him. No tricks, no conspiracy, he'd have just up and kicked the shit out of anyone who got in his way.

    I might make a thread with him just so I can post the "I fear Benedict," speech Corwin gave to Ganelon.

    I used to think Lycanthropy and Leprosy were the same thing.
    Yeah I give up. They would need like a bajillion UNs to take it out. And they would all have to work.

    That would make an awesome movie and it would explain why their aren't any around anymore.

    But this was before i found out about things like Leper colonies and such. Which i guess is for the best i would've been unsettled if i thought there was colonies full of werewolves.

    Also, it's heavily implied that Benedict, while he doesn't play the tricks/politics game like his sibilings, is far more experienced and conversant with it.

    Though he does get the wool pulled over his eyes once in the series, it's by someone who basically screws around with the entire family; any attempt by his siblings to mess with his head or obfuscate the situation would probably result in Benedict simply seeing through it and, well...with predictable results.

    I might make a thread with him just so I can post the "I fear Benedict," speech Corwin gave to Ganelon.
    Yep, and there are darned few people Corwin fears.

    There are darned few people Corwin respects, as well.

    Benedict is possibly the only one in the entire series that falls into both catagories.

    The problem is, while Corwin gushes about it a lot, we have very few feats where Benedict actually DOES anything 'on camera' so to speak.

    I like the suggestion of enhancing the YOUR FIRED! speech with a beer bottle. Which I will make them watch me drink first.
    Good God man! Why are you slapping a monkey.

    *rises from the dead*

    Hey, people, what's up?

    *notices ralk of lycanthrope colonies*

    Lycanthrope colonies are not a joking matter! Their living conditions are well below the norm and they are desperately in need of basic necessities!

    We should all take out some time and help them.

    Who's bright idea was it to build a Lycanthrope Colony on top of an active volcano anyhow?

    I like the way this lass thinks.

    Plenty of time to schedule a literally last minute repentance too.
