    Writer Collaboration

    I have collaborated with another author before, writing a zombie fic. My writing at the time was more dark and she was more lighthearted so it was a good combo!

    @ColumbusGuyand @Thorn Wilde I will admit to using the word creamy in my own writing just the other day, but in my own defense, I was using it to describe a pastry filling, not a part of the human body. @Carlos Hazday I always welcome feedback, but if you call one of my stories creamy, I will hunt you down.

      Good for you, Cassie! :2thumbs:

       

      It’s been years, but I can still remember going to war with a bunch of ants and coming out the victor. Gotta love Raid!

       I used to have some stuff called 'Doom'.

       

      I loved the name but haven't seen any for a while now.

  5. Not all people with ADHD are hyperactive. I think it is a diagnostic thing. I have primarily inattentive ADHD and I was never diagnosed in school (back in the 80s), because I was quiet and didn't cause trouble because I was lost in my own head a lot of the time. It was the impulsive and hyperactive kids who usually got help first, because they were easier to find and diagnose. I was diagnosed as an adult and the first time I took medication for it, I almost cried. There was no noise in my head and all of a sudden my thoughts were clear and laid out in a way that made sense and were easy to follow. I could look at a task in front of me and work on it without being distracted by every other thing in the room. That's not a technicality.

  7. The Samhain festival was great, but I'm so glad not to smell like smoke anymore.

    Sexy songs

    Drumming Song is great. I also love Howl, the hunger in the lyrics are very sexy.

    Sexy songs

    I haven't seen it listed, so I'm going to add "Bedroom Hymns" by Florence + the Machine. It is a song about sex, but it's wrapped up in imagery and metaphor in a way that makes it all the more sexy. And her voice certainly doesn't hurt.
  10. I've been invited to a Samhain potluck this weekend by some friends I haven't seen in a while.  Any suggestions for a good dish?  (No suggestions from @Valkyrie's latest story please  :lmao:).

      Shepherd's pie or colcannon.  And definitely mead.  :) Sounds like a lot of fun :D

      At household festivities throughout the Gaelic regions and Wales, there were many rituals intended to divine the future of those gathered, especially with regard to death and marriage.[17][50] Apples and hazelnuts were often used in these divination rituals or games. In Celtic mythology, apples were strongly associated with the Otherworld and immortality, while hazelnuts were associated with divine wisdom.[51] One of the most common games was apple bobbing. Another involved hanging a small wooden rod from the ceiling at head height, with a lit candle on one end and an apple hanging from the other. The rod was spun round and everyone took turns to try to catch the apple with their teeth.[52] Apples were peeled in one long strip, the peel tossed over the shoulder, and its shape was said to form the first letter of the future spouse's name.[53] Two hazelnuts were roasted near a fire; one named for the person roasting them and the other for the person they desired. If the nuts jumped away from the heat, it was a bad sign, but if the nuts roasted quietly it foretold a good match.[54][55] Items were hidden in food—usually a cake, barmbrack, cranachan, champ or sowans—and portions of it served out at random. A person's future was foretold by the item they happened to find; for example a ring meant marriage and a coin meant wealth.[56] A salty oatmeal bannock was baked; the person ate it in three bites and then went to bed in silence without anything to drink. This was said to result in a dream in which their future spouse offers them a drink to quench their thirst.[57] Egg whites were dropped in water, and the shapes foretold the number of future children. Children would also chase crows and divine some of these things from the number of birds or the direction they flew.

       

      maybe show up with a dozen eggs to crack the whites into the water ;) Then pretend you can read everyone's future :)

    I don't think it helped that I was eating while I read this. Frank is a very creative cook!

    Inverted at Work? - a plea for advice

    Good topics for conversation usually include family, occupation, recreation and dreams. Some of my older patients will talk for 20 minutes straight if I bring up their grandkids.

      I can usually make mine out, but even a doctor would find my handwriting unreadable....

    Inverted at Work? - a plea for advice

    It sounds like, from your post, that your thoughts of finding a new job is a good path. Your current workplace does not sound like a good fit at all. I don't think I would like working there either. I am a very introverted person and what helps me at work is making other people talk so I don't have to as much. Stay away from the big bads (Religion, Politics, Economy, etc). When I have to approach someone, I usually smile, say hi and introduce myself then ask if there is anything I can help them with. If I was in a sales job, then I would ask something along the lines of "Have you heard about such and such product? Let me tell you some more about it." If someone catches me off guard with a question (my boss loves to do this too) I usually repeat it back to them to give myself from extra time to think about it and compose myself. I have a very extroverted guy at work who I admire for getting people to open up. He always opens up with questions that invites people to talk about themselves. People LOVE to talk about themselves. I will sometimes script a conversation if I know I have to talk to someone important and I recite it to myself or to a friend. Also if you don't like face to face conversations, use email or phone calls if it is appropriate. Good luck with looking for another job. Job searching really sucks, but finding a place that you don't dread going into every day is well worth it.
