Not to defend Bachman, but that quote has been attributed to other women, including Mirriam Ferguson, Texas' first female governor back in 1924.

Just sayin'

So I took my car to the dealer for its usual oil change/maintenance on Saturday. While there, my roommate decided to go ahead and do a test drive. We didn't see my salesman, which is fine, we were mostly just looking and discussing.

I'm usually very quiet when salespeople are about, and my roommate is present, because I prefer to observe and listen to interactions.

Yet, somehow, the salesman who did locate us decided he was going to sell to my roommate only (also, people generally assume we're married or involved, which is more amusing), without ever trying to sell me onto the idea too, so maybe I could convince him later. Usually, that's what happens - y'know, the whole, "sell it to the spouse," thing.

We decided afterwards that, though I was quiet, it wasn't because he thought I was submissive or anything. We agree that he was probably afraid of me. Though I didn't say anything other than my name (which he got wrong), and certainly didn't threaten him. :lol:

GW2 thief is now 70, still dual wielding pistols.

It gets very entertaining, as my thief companion prefers dual daggers. Our conversations now go something like:

"Where did you go?"

"I'm over here!"

"...why are you over there?"

"I DON'T KNOW!"

And the occasional, "I'M DYING!" and me saying, "I'm not. Oh, you died." "I can't release, because you're not dead." And then I tend to finish shooting to death my enemies while he sighs impatiently. :D

Complaints of too high or too low? I haven't checked the price, so can't make my own decision about how much I care XD

It had been accidentally enabled when US servers came up for few minutes, and the price written was 60$. Might still change, but to me it sounds fine. Not buying it ever, though.

So I can purchase a level 90 character for the price of a new game. Wouldn't be my first choice to spend money on, but I can definitely say it also wouldn't be my last.

I get bored with the leveling grind (regardless of how short some people have managed to science it down to.) If I can have some instant gratification to test out some class I haven't managed to get past level 10? I'm okay with that. Would I rather there be some way to do so without spending $60? Yes, but then it should probably be a non-permanent character.

From someone who had 26 lvl 85 in Cata, and now sitting at 15 lvl 90 (prrrr Bldavis), I can tell you some of us do enjoy leveling ;)

Today promises to be an interesting day.

On the way from my work's cafeteria to my desk, I saw a pair of women's (white with black floral type designed) panties in the bushes between my building and my parking garage.

No pics, as my hands were full, and frankly, that'd be kinda gross. But, wow...

Most of my old lvl 85s are sitting abandoned on the Italian servers and I don't plan to relevel them.
Of my current 13 lvl 90s, 5 have been leveled from 1 in this expansion.

Reddit hivemind not understanding how expensive it is to make a TV show and how the current horrible cable system actually encourages and helps networks take risks on creating high quality TV shows, and also makes "reality" shows a low risk/high reward alternative.

But you know, I'm sure Netflix with their razor thin profits could totally keep up with every cable and broadcast network out there in original programming without raising prices
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.
