2023.06.06 05:15 Allwingletnolift Looking for a place in the New York area to sit and watch the trains go by
Hey everyone, I’ve lived in NYC my whole life and I’m a big fan of our rail networks here. I’ve got the whole day free tomorrow and I wanted to sit somewhere and watch the trains and people go by and just watch all the madness unfold. I’ve listed some of what I’m looking for below; I’d appreciate it if y’all could suggest some locations to check out, to help me figure out how to make the most of the day!
-I’d like to be able to see as many individual platforms or tracks as I can without having to move much from my seat or running all over the place -I’d prefer a spot within a station, not somewhere too sketchy like the side of a road or anything -I always enjoy helping the lost tourists figure out where to go and I enjoy reading the service alerts and helping people figure out how to get where they want to go, so someplace lively! -A system or network where I can keep track of which trains are coming or going would be great, like metro north or LIRR with the radar site, or even the subway with the time estimate information.

2023.06.06 05:12 FutureL3nnon [US,US] [H] Paypal [W] WOTC DMG-HP, Black Star Promos, Legendary Collection, and some Celebrations
Posting this again.
I'm building 2 full playsets of WOTC cards from Base Set through Gym Challenge. That means 8 copies of a card. Reprints such as Base Set 2, Legendary Collections, Deck Exclusives, and Celebrations are acceptable copies.
Base Set, Jungle, Fossil, Base Set 2, *Team Rocket, *Gym Heroes, *Gym Challenge, Legendary Collections, and Celebrations.
I'm mainly looking for DMG Unlimited on the higher end Rares/Holos/Promos. DMG-HP, and possibly MP Unlimited on the condition for all others. Celebrations can be NM. Bundles, sets, donations, etc...are accepted and encouraged! I'll be prioritizing worst conditions for price reasons.
Here is a link to my Google Sheet of all the cards I want and their quantities:
I keep it up to date after every pending/completed transaction.
Have any questions? Ask away!
Progress has been made, but I'll still be working on this.
Feel free to come back to this post and spread the word!
Thanks in advance and have a wonderful day/night!

2023.06.06 05:10 Dear_PomPomCafe79412 Need advice from working moms! When did you return to after the birth of your first child?
| || |
Im expecting a child on November. I have been battling my finances since last year since i graduated from a new career Nursing and started my big girl job (worked as a cashier at a gas station for 7 years). worked for 1 year at a small hospital ($27.40/hr as a nurse), and luckily I have been paying for Short term disability (pays 60% of pay). submitted by Dear_PomPomCafe79412 to povertyfinance [link] [comments]
Side note: never thought i would get pregnant but i had covid in feb, took plaxovid. But the antiviral medication decreased the effectiveness of birth control and bam! April comes with all the symptoms and a positive test.
Anyways, i paid off 2 credit cards and have been on a budget plan (Thank you TheBudgetMom Miko on Insta and YT). Now my student loans is way up in the ceiling and will be resuming in September 2023. NelNet bought MyGreatLakes Student Loans and the monthly payments are over $550! This hurts my head and heart. I have been making $208 for the last year as it fits my budget. If i wasnt expecting a new life to come into my world, i would not worry as i can work more hours. I have $1200 emergency savings and $1000 saving for downpaymen toward my goal to move to the east coast. Two working adults joined income of $6150. Our current monthly fix expenses are $5224. Starring September it would be $556 with the new student loan amount. Have been trying to stick with variable of $800 (two adults and 3dogs). But now i am debating if i should birth this child, stay home for 2-4weeks and then return to work because the increase leaves me negative. So is going back to work after 2-4 weeks too early? Because i am 1000% positive diapers, clothing, medical copays, laundry detergent and stuff will increase. And 12-week maternity leave does not seem realistic to me. And i have considered day care once a week, one weeks where i have to work weekDay rather than nights.
**I dont have any family in the area, they are all in the Philippines. My fíance's family are all in the east coast. So its just me, him and our three furbabies.
2023.06.06 05:07 Checked-Out13 White 2, Attempt 3, Update 5
So I had an interesting time since Update 4. Route 4 Colress battle was easy and I caught Sekkha the Sandile with Intimidate. Since it was Monday, I also found Cimarron, the Adamant HA Braviary (a static encounter, and thus a free catch). But while training, I had Hugs the Drilbur up front in a trainer battle vs a Darumaka. I didn’t apply status conditions and was instead using Mud Slap and Dig on it, as it had Facade. Well, one conmected, and it Crit One Shot my little mole. A crushing loss.
In the Desert Resort, I found Oracle the Sigilyph, who is staying boxed for now due to a Terrible Nature (and being my 4th flying option, with Echo and Peanut boxed for the time being). Relic Castle got me a Sandshrew I named Scuttles, who was holding Quick Claw. That might be helpful someday.
In Nimbasa City, I had a close call in the Double Battle vs Ingo and Emett, since Nate’s team was almost completely wiped, but I had no losses thankfully. I decided to head West first to catch stuff on Route 5. Bianca led me to thr Hidden Grotto, likely the only one I’ll get this run if I’m not lucky, and I saved right before Minccino. This Save is important because I would then catch it, a Solosis on Route 5, a Liepard on Route 16, and a Mold Breaker Pinsir in Lostlorn Forest, grinding my team to level 30. Then my DS was knocked out of my grip when I was tackled by a dog. The game crashed and froze, and nearly 2 hours of work was lost.
Well, I took an hour to relax before getting back to it, having some food and water in my system, starting with Minccino. He was caught and named Sweep. Route 5 gifted me Hefty the Trubbish this time, and I reclaimed my Solosis, Jelly, on route 16. In Lostlorn Forest when I began grinding my team, trying to make my strategy, I found Sweater the Swadloon, who I might make use of someday if needed. It is a high Def line after all.
Thanks to a chance case of Paralysis during my grinding, I was struck with inspiration for my battle with Elesa. Grinding the team to levels 28-30 (Shogun is still 24, but is now my primary Grind, while Cashmere is either to be Boxed os given EXP Share in the future), I quickly dealt with the Roller Coaster and Gym Trainers before stopping at the PC to select my 3.
The spotlights shining on the Runway, our electrifying battle began! I led with Glitch the now Magneton vs Elesa’s Emolga. They had Leftovers on to recover any damage taken, 5hp a round. Turn 1, I was hit with a light Pursuit and set up Reflect. I was hoping for Zebstrika to hit the field, but also wanted to set up for late game, so I went for Thunderwave, which I learned could work on Electric Types still in Gen 5. But Emolga Volt Switched into Zebstrika, and it got a speed boost. However, with Reflect, I swapped into Sekkha the Krokorok, who spooked the zebra with Intimidate and barely was hit with Flame Charge. I went with Embargo, in case I didn’t one shot next turn, taking a light Pursuit. Dig followed up, but I was tapped with Quick Attack going underground. The Reflect faded, but I dodged Flame Charge and One Shot the Zebstrika, a run killer for my previous attempts at Unova.
Flaafy was out next, so I swapped into Glitch again, tanking a Take Down. Reflect was up again, and I was hit with Thunderwave. But I retaliated with my own, barely knicked by a Take Down, and swapped into Scuttles the Sandslash, absorbing a Volt Switch Elesa used to try and get out to the much faster Emolga. I used Dig, much faster than the sheep, dodging a Take Down. One Shot, and Reflect down again.
Emolga was all that was left, but I couldn’t take any risks. I went back to Glitch again, taking Pursuit on Scuttles for about 1/3 thanks to a Crit. Reflect was up after another Pursuit tapped the Magneton. We got Full Paralyzed next, and tapped with two more Quick Attacks before Thunderwave hit. 2 turns on Reflect. Swap into Sekkha, Emolga Full Paralyzed. 1 Turn left. Rock Tomb does 3/4. We tapped with Pursuit. Reflect breaks. EMOLGA IS FULL PARALYZED, ATTEMPTING TO QUICK ATTACK! I go for another Rock Tomb with high hopes.
It connects. The crowd and music are silent for a few seconds, enough you can hear a pin drop.
Then the cheering. We did it. A gym I was so terrified of. And we beat it deathless with only 3 pokemon. With the Volt Switch TM and the 4th Badge under my belt, my journey has finally begun to take me to Driftveil City, and to Clay. Time to raise the team to level 33, and decide my NeXT strategy. I absolutely want to use Shogun, whi hasn’t been in a Gym Battle since Roxie in Virbank City, but I need to decide who else to use, as I fully expect someone to die vs Excadrill.

2023.06.06 05:07 Sharinganprincess91 [F4M] Fandom Roleplay. Looking for more partners. (Super freaking bored and really could use some more partners :/)
Side note: I've added a password, so read carefully. If you message me WITHOUT the password, your messages are automatically IGNORED. tired of getting hit up with people who don't read 😒. It's ridiculous cause I've ignored 5+ chats cause none of them contained the password. Things are written for a reason.
Facts about me:
- I have been roleplaying since 2012. Yes, I got experience under my belt, and yes, my ideas usually have really long reads, but don't let that scare you off! After the starter is off, I may lower myself down to a decent paragraph or two, sometimes three! It all depends on what I've got to work with.
- My timezone is EST. I'm awake from 9am - 2am and I'm usually free unless I'm busy doing house chores, out of the house, asleep, or playing video games on my switch. I'm usually become REALLY active at or around 8pm.
1: if you don't like 50/50 mixture of sex scenes and story, don't bother hopping into my inbox. I'm fine with sex scenes, but when it's constantly back to back, the roleplay itself gets boring.
2: Be literate. No one liners. I like to write..it's annoying when I send a 2-3 paragraph response and I get 3 lines...just...no. I am not accepting people who are just starting out! If you aren't experienced in writing or roleplaying, kindly stay out of my inbox.
3: Be okay with playing canon characters. I'm mainly doing fandom roleplays right now and it's going to be Canon x my oc. No, I'm not doing double ups. Do not even ask, because the answer will be no every time. I do not give a shit if you think that makes me 'lazy' or 'selfish', if you've got a problem, you can simply ignore or block me. Commenting on my post to bitch and whine about me not doubling up will only result in me blocking you. The ONLY time I'll double up, and if I'm confident enough, I'll only do female characters. I suck at males. Got a problem? Not my issue. Block and move on.
4: Roleplay in third person. I can't and won't adapt to first. Don't even bring up the idea of you playing first person and me playing third. Believe it or not, I've been asked this twice and that is just a hell no for me. The only time I do first, is when I'm writing into my book.
5: if you don't know how to share ideas, then don't bother messaging me. I'm tired of carrying the story when the other person doesn't help. If you've got ideas, then PLEASE speak up! Your opinion on the roleplay matters too! I'm an easy going person, and easy to get along with (dispite my rules).
6: DO NOT control my character. I control what she says, does, hears, sees, ect. I don't control yours, so don't control mine. HOWEVER, if it's highly necessary and needed, then run it by me first and ask me. Just leave me some wiggle room so I can make a decent response. Failure to comply by this rule, results in immediate drop of the rp.
Yes, I've updated my rules just a tad. I do not care if it makes me sound mean or rude, because I'm neither of these things. I'm just tired of putting these rules down for a specific reason and they go ignored because I can tell when someone hasn't read them, and lied about it. I'm just trying to get my point across and roleplay. I'm a very easy going person who loves to make friends on the side (which I've somewhat given up on making friends...only a selective few have actually gained my friendship).
Do not hop into my inbox with a simple 'hey' 'hi' 'sup', etc and for God's sake, don't message me with a 'rp?'and proceed me to flash me with your talliwhacker. I promise you, you'll get your feelings hurt and I'll be here laughing at ya 😂. Nobody wants a peen on their screen. Do not send me an image of your one eyed noodle. Thank you. The password is pineapple.

2023.06.06 05:07 Dankstin Winner's Remorse: An introspection
I don't play high. Well, I typically don't play high. I mean, high power. I don't mean high. I don't touch the stuff. I like to think myself as a casual player, but my mindset is not casual. It's always trying to think like Jericho Swain, which is definitely a character flaw and I've been trying to work on it. I take too much time between my thought processes and so my turns are noticeably longer than others. Thankfully, my playgroup is gracious about it and doesn't hound me too much. That being said...
I don't typically play high. I have a few high decks because sometimes I can't find games within my realm of jank or casual style and I really just want to sling some good ye ol cardboard. Sometimes you have to give to get. And so brings me to high games and what I can only describe as "winner's remorse." For example, I get all hyped up for a high power game. Much is expected, much anticipated. I'm talking slamming rocks on rocks on rocks, value being created, plays being made, good times being had. Nah. A lot of these games, with these players playing high power decks... these games don't feel high, and winning them doesn't do a thing for me unless like, I gotta go eat dinner and the game needs to end. Good to finish the game instead of concede at that point.
I play mids and I play jank because it keeps me unpredictable, and the data players scan in their heads as they read decks and try to make sense of what they're seeing, cultivating an idea of what's about to happen - it's never what my decks do. I like to go against the grain. That isn't to say I hate staples or that I hate high power cards and that I never go with the flow or that I avoid *all* the low-hanging-fruit type strategies and singles, but I to tend to TRY to avoid certain say, uninteresting cards that basically win the game by themselves, or have the potential to create such value with little to no effort. I'm talking like, Entomb Exhume Consecrated Sphinx. Meh. Okay GG. Uninteresting. Actually that card is such a removal magnet it's not worth a slot at all in my opinion. If you want 6 cards across 3 turns at sorcery speed, there are other ways to get there without becoming the target of the entire table.
So anyway I built this Naya list with Elmar and Othelm because I enjoy Naya and I enjoy graveyard strats. Well that deck eventually had to evolve into what you all know as Rocco. It's just a combo deck now. I know Rocco tends to just go off, but I feel like the Friends Forever mechanic offers more options in this scenario, so I keep these two together. My combos involve Othelm and Elmar helps me ramp and draw if need be. They're both 3 cmc, so they also do the Felidar lines with Vivien. I keep winning with this deck, in spite of everything going on. It'll combo in some way or another and I'll feel bad for it because it's never lost a game. I'm sure someone can just decide "You know what, this game, you can't win." And then oust me and make sure nothing relevant happens. It can happen, and I'm very surprised it has yet to. My last game I did absolutely diddly. I kept a 6 land hand and a ramp spell cuz I figured it can only go up from there. It did. I topdecked a Vivien, both commanders out, and nobody responded, and so I stole the game easy-peazy. This is not what I want out of high power games. Oh a thing happens? No response? GG. Was it a good game though, or just a slow game for all where I got lucky the other guy was tapped out? It's games like this which cause me to be never lfg high. Is there a cure, or do I just naturally hate competitive cards and outcomes? I feel like my moxfield is full of "wtf" moments like, you look at a list and be like "why tho."
Please, no low effort responses. I'm seeking council here.

2023.06.06 05:07 Mile_High_Samurai Good Times: * Verbal Syrup *
| || |
Hi Denver, submitted by Mile_High_Samurai to Denver [link] [comments]
I don't typically post things on Reddit. On this occassion though, I thought what the heck.
I had just taken the kids out for some post-dinner custards at Good Times, and after finally getting the order through, examined the receipt to make sure everything was correct. Upon closer inspection, there was a line item for "Add * Verbal Syrup *". After a good laugh with my wife about it, we both came to the conclusion, what in the world is verbal syrup?
If there are any Good Times employees or anyone else that might know what this is, I'm just curious why this terminology was decided upon? It's such a strange and unappealing way to phrase something.
Thank you all for your time.
2023.06.06 05:05 keagennn97 What is medicare? And should I get private health insurance while on a VISA?
This may seem like a silly question, however after reading countless of articles, websites, threads I feel as though I am still very confused on this topic.
I am a 25y/o male who is moving to sydney in a couple weeks from New Zealand (with a NZ passport, eligible for work) where I have a permanent, full time job already lined up in geotechnical engineering. For numbers wise as this may make giving me advice a tad easier, I will be earning 87.5k inclusive of super (so just under 80 without super).
I am still confused as to what Medicare is? Does it essentially mean once you have a medicare card you get discounted rates at certain health care facilities, depending on what services you require? And how does this compare to private health care insurance?
Medical background, I have had no complications from what I know, other than a fractured ankle 2 months ago. So with this, I was maybe thinking health insurance may be beneficial incase something goes wrong with it again and I need surgery etc. Would you recommend it? And if so, is it best to go to a silvegold plan instead of basic.
I'm just thinking of the possibilities of something going wrong and not being an Australian citizen or permanent resident. Would this be worth it? And if so, what is the approx. range I may have to pay per month?

2023.06.06 05:05 _KrBk_ I (21F) got a really expensive gift from my mom's (47F) boss (M) and don't know how to say i don't need it
Before i start the story, i want to say that i feel ridiculous for the things i'm gonma say, and i may be taking this situation way out of proportion, but it's been troubling me and haven't really got any good advices on how to handle this.
So I (21F) recently got gifted a last generation cellphone from my mother's boss (M), he's always been a family friend since my mom's been working for him since she was 18.
The thing is that the phone i'm currently using is in excellent conditions, battery last all day, is not working slow and still have free storage. Also, it was a gift from the same person two years ago.
I really love my actual phone, it's always been a model that i wished i had and i wasn't planning on changing it anytime soon. But today he showed up with a new one as a gift for my birthday. I obviously thanked him, i told him that it wasn't really necessary tho. He said that it was time i changed it already since it's been two years that i got my actual phone.
I accepted it but talked to my mom about how i really don't need it and that i'm too attached to my actual one to think about changing it. We argued, she made it seem as if i wasn't grateful for the gift, which, don't get me wrong, i really am thankful, and it's not everyday that someone gifts you an over 1000 dollars phone (especially in my country lol).
I said that maybe i could talk to him and see if we can maybe change it for something else? But she said that would be ungrateful and that i should just use the new one and stop exaggerating.
Now, i find myself in a spot where i don't want to leave my actual phone for the new one but I also don't want to leave the new one to collect dust. What do i do? Do i speak to him about this? I don't want to sound rude, and i feel that if i told him this he would be very disappointed. Everyone i asked for advice said to either keep it or to sell it.
One friend suggested selling it and buying something i want but i find that overly disrespectful towards the intention of the person that gifted to me, so that's not an option. Please help.
TLDR: I got a very expensive phone but don't want to change my actual one for that one and my mom thinks it's ungrateful on my end to ask the person that gifted it to me if he can change it for something else.

2023.06.06 05:00 luckytron New Terran Refugee (Pt - 20) : An NOP fanfic
- [[Next]] New Terran Refugee (Pt - 20) : An NOP fanfic
Thanks to u/SpacePaladin15 for letting people write fanfics.
This is just a fanfic of course.
This chapter went through several iterations, I might have let myself think I could release it 1 week late (and failed). Also, I might have gotten sidetracked with other non-writing thing, oops.
“OOPS! All Rewrites! And side projects!” – Me
In any case, here’s the chapter:
Memory transcription subject: Tayla, Venlil Widow
Date [standardized human time]: October 18, 2136
The first thing I became aware of was that I had awoken enveloping a richly warm pillow with a soft surface from above, and that not only was it hot but that it was also soft and squishy but without too much give, in fact it was somehow firmer below the surface, I snuggled closer to the material that was emanating heat below me and drove off my mind’s attempts at waking me up, this was too blissful an experience to stop suddenly.
The second thing I became aware of was that I didn’t remember replacing my heated pillow as the cold wind season was still expected to be a good deal of time away and that I had much more important things to spend my limited budget on.
The third thing I became aware of was that I wasn’t hugging a pillow, this only happened when I noticed that it wasn’t moving because I was snuggling into it, but rather moving in a steady motion against me, like when someone breathes while asleep.
The fourth thing I became aware of, were the memories of what led me into this situation ‘Just gonna close my eyes for a moment’; Why did I lie to myself like that?
The final thing I became aware of snapped me out of my musings, it was the reason I woke up, and the reason I had crashed so hard into sleepiness.
The consequence of drinking copious amounts of [shade root] tea to keep watch over Jorge until I could call the number in the email during the schedule it had included beneath itself, this was made worse by the cans of ‘Twilight Energy’ I had drank at the end when more drastic measures had to be taken.
I couldn’t ignore it I couldn’t help but feel the pressure mounting inside my bladder as I peeled myself off from on top of Jorge.
Why did I move so much while asleep?
Oh Protector, I missed his warmth already…
I made a mental note to look into repairing my heated pillow for cheap due to a sudden urge to sleep with something warm more frequently, the abrupt thought jogging loose some memories about contact information of some local repairvenlil I’d called before for one reason or another, along with the memory of the number I called before… napping with Jorge…
A great feeling of chagrin manifested along with my bloom while closing Jorge’s bathroom door behind me as I remembered the text beneath the schedule, ‘Extended working hours during emergency situations’, the aftermath of antimatter bombing definitely applied… especially since that Mrs. Bennet sounded so exhausted so soon after the supposed start of her work claw.
I decided to chalk up my lapse in judgement to have been due to how Jorge’s expression before he sealed himself in had left my thoughts racing and heart pounding in worry over him.
With my thoughts somewhat settled, I examined the strange toilet that had been installed, before throwing caution to the winds when the urgency I felt reasserted itself with force.
After closing the lid and washing my paws, I finally found what had to be the equivalent of the pulley and chain, a small, recessed button parted into 2 asymmetric parts on the top middle part behind the seat.
I pressed both parts at the same time just in case.
A small eep escaped me but was drowned out by the noises that were still coming from the strange toilet!
Finally, the ruckus ended, letting me calm down from the unexpected loudness. Wait, did that noise wak-
THUNK THUNK THUNK
A bigger eep escaped me as I jumped a little into the air; However this time it wasn’t drowned out by another noise.
“¿you ok in there?” I could barely make out Jorge’s voice through the door, like he was putting in the barest effort needed to speak.
“Y-yeah, j-just startled…” I opened the door as I trailed off, a sudden realization had me asking him a question, “I guess I know how It felt w-when I s-startled you h-huh?”
His normally expressive face remained still, the only reaction to my attempt at lightening the mood a brief exhale from his nose; He simply slipped past me as I left the bathroom and muttered something I didn’t quite hear just before shutting the door softly.
I went back to the bed and turned on his pad, after a few seconds of waiting for it to turn on, and a few more waiting for my translator to parse the strange [date and time] format the humans used (Honestly, who separated the [hours] and the [days/months] like that?) I felt a bit of relief as I sank a bit into the still warm bed.
According to the pad, I’d just taken a short nap, I still had plenty of time until my children came back home, hopefully I had enough time to actually have some kind of talk with Jorge.
I’d have to somehow get him to talk about last Paw’s… reaction of his, and find a way to convince him to talk about his family, It’d be good for him to recognize that pain, maybe he’d even hold onto it like me…
That thing that the humans called a toilet interrupted my train of thought before I could do more than think of the barest of ways I could breeze into such heavy topics, the small delay between the toilet’s sound, the groaning of water travelling to the faucet, and the door opening wasn’t even enough to get back on my mind’s [zephyr].
A quick focus on Jorge’s face made my determination start to breeze away a bit, it was much easier to think of how to talk to him when I couldn’t see just how heavily everything [to wear down like a long strong gale would] on him.
Jorge deflated slightly but visibly at how I apparently froze up at the sight of him.
“well, thanks, i… feel better, you can just… leave me be for now”
Jorge stood still, averting his eyes from me until he shrugged strangely after turning to look at the barricade, he then shuffled over and started to shift it to the side a bit, evidently wishing to put it back in place after I left.
“ah” he cleared his throat, “sorry, you can leave now” he returned to averting his eyes from looking at me and awkwardly motioned towards the wide opening he had made after dragging the barricade as he stepped away morosely.
“Jorge.” I paused to breathe; I’d managed to huff out his name just as I needed to exhale.
Jorge stood still for a moment before tentatively focusing on me, a strangely vulnerable expression sat on his face.
I patted the bed (an appropriate and proper distance away from me) with my tail before curling it away from the spot, he seemed to get the message and soon he had sat down beside me, brief moment of hesitation notwithstanding.
I turned my head towards him as I’d seen him do when talking, he flinched a little when his eyes met mine, closing them and averting his face, I reached out for his nearby claw with my tail and put it down gently on top.
I waited patiently for him to start talking; Thankfully the wait was short.
“this… ¿is this about… my reaction yesterday?”
“Yes,” I squeezed down on his claw softly with my tail in a comforting gesture, “I wanted to speak with you about that sooner, but for now…” another gentle squeeze, “I’m just glad you seem to be doing a little bit better.”
Silence enveloped us as Jorge seemed to mull over what I’d just said.
A small hint of a hunch had me examining him more closely, it seemed he was anxiously waiting for me to talk some more.
I chastised myself internally, ‘Of course he wasn’t going to be feeling very talkative…’, how could someone jump straight into talking about such a topic? It’d probably be better to start with other stuff and gauge things from there; With that my mind sifted through possible topics until one stood out.
“S-so, I kind of… used up a lot of your powdered ingredients… heh…” I took in his features, he seemed halfway here and halfway far away.
Maybe… Maybe if I somehow mentioned the call to remind him that there were more humans he could try talking to? Just in case he was getting tired of my clumsy attempts at talking with him…
“I, uh, didn’t think of asking Mrs. Bennet about their availability when I called her this Paw, s-sorry about that… b-but I’m sure they’ll get some more that you can use soon, right?”
That got a reaction, a small one, out of him; His eyes widened. It… felt wrong.
“o-oh, well, i’d better get started packing then…”
An impossibly heavy weight settled deep inside my stomach as he moved his claw out from under my frozen tail tip, my throat clenched up as Jorge got up and limply started wading to his bag.
I stared in mute horror as he dumped his clean body coverings into it, trying to communicate anything to him, and failing miserably as the sheer disbelief of just how horribly I had miscommunicated kept me frozen, while the pain and betrayal I could imagine him feeling kept my mind reeling.
He stopped just as he reached his bag, his claws clenched for a moment before he unclenched them slowly and turned around to look directly at me.
He’d shed more tears, his eyes were an ugly and fresher shade of red.
“y-you were waiting down here for me to wake up again just to have this conversation as soon as possible. ¿am i right?”
Th-this wasn’t supposed to go like this!
“I… I was-”
“I!” interrupted Jorge with an elevated tone of voice, “…Earlier, I woke up and went back to sleep a few times, I could see you sitting on the stairs, sometimes you and your pad would be missing, I kept thinking that maybe you were worried about me ¿you know?”
“I-” An intense look from him kept the rest of my response in my head; ‘I was!’ I wanted to plead.
“I guess you didn’t plan for me falling asleep after crying…” He trailed off and seemed to go into deep thought for a moment, before his eyes narrowed dangerously. “¿Did you just bring me that Atole to soften the blow?” He held up one of his claws towards me while making a stabbing motion with it, his voice came out as a much lower growl than normal from him. “¿Or was putting me to sleep part of the plan?”
My face felt as if I’d been hit by an icy gale. ‘Did he just insinua-?’
“You’re fucking heartless.” That last sentence from him was punctuated by a fresh set of tears from his eyes, though no sobbing came from him as he let himself fall backwards down onto the floor, like a puppet with its strings suddenly cut.
My heart was beating wildly, and my eyes stung from the horrible accusations that he was making, and from how I’d probably be doing just what he had said if this had happened a few days ago…
I gave myself a moment to recollect myself, I’d thought similar enough things when I was alone in the hospital after losing my family, not nearly as extreme but… my circumstances back then and his right now weren’t comparable.
I shuddered internally at how much worse I’d have fared if it had been Venlil Prime that had been attacked; I’d probably… I’d have tried to do what he tried last night…
With a sigh I focused consciously on Jorge, who was breathing a bit more steadily now, as I picked up the bottle and moved steadily towards his alert gaze.
I sat down in front of him and opened the bottle, he narrowed his eyes even further in response, making the redness and glistening more pronounced, the patches of fur above his eyes changed position as well; I didn’t quite know what it meant, but it couldn’t possibly have been from him feeling happy or at peace.
I pushed through the sense of fear that was starting to form from being under his stare and took in the rest of his body language… I readjusted my position and observed as he flinched away from me…
I slowly raised the bottle and drank; The patches of fur over his eyes returned to their normal position, overshot and stayed raised while the intensity of his stare diminished. Finally, he tilted his head ever so slightly.
After a few gulps more I stopped drinking and offered him the bottle, he still wasn’t accepting it; I wiped my lips and prepared to speak.
“…I wouldn’t do that to you…” A small quiver at the end made me trail off until I was certain my voice wouldn’t fail me. I wouldn’t do that now. “None of those things, I mean… Even after all I did… You gave me a chance…”
“When you put it like that…” Jorge wiped his eyes. “I mean, I don’t know what came over me…” He looked to the side and deflated a little.
“I understand… I was like this too…” A small shiver traveled through my spine, thinking about it always did… I ignored the shiver by standing up and offering him the bottle again, this time he grabbed it and drank deeply.
He trailed behind me, we sat down on opposite sides of the bed, him hugging his legs as he sat against the wall, and me with one leg over the edge of the bed with the other one crossed over it.
Dozens of starting points were flurrying in my head, I couldn’t decide on one, so I cleared my throat and let myself say whatever came out first.
“I’m married.” Jorge became extremely visibly confused. “I-I’m a Widow, I meant to say…” The familiar sting of pain grounded me as his expression changed into one I could recognize even from him, pity.
died “…It happened 11 years ago, I… I lost my family at the same time…”
Jorge’s expression softened even more, no longer out of pity, but out of understanding… of the pain we shared…
“It was my dad’s idea, he’s always wanted to have a big family homestead… when the latest batch of colonies were finally cleared for habitation he bought a plot immediately, my sister and her husband went with them first, then my brother and his wife, and finally me and…”
This whole talking thing was much harder than I thought… I cleared my throat; I couldn’t go on just omitting any names in my retelling…
“Krayla, that’s my mother’s name.” I paused, waiting for his reaction, he ‘nodded’ slowly, solemnly. “Tavk’io, my dad; Talnum, my b-brother; Tahyiya, m-my sister; …a-and Glim, m-my husband…”
I buried my head in my paws, this was too much…
A moment passed, I felt something brush against my tail; Opening my eyes I saw that it was Jorge’s claw, he patted the tip gently until his eyes met mine.
“Emiliano José Cauich Ayala, t-that’s my father’s name.” He paused to breathe and wiped his eyes. “Ixchel Paola Rojas Canul, that’s my mother’s name.”
We stayed in silence for a while longer, at least in my case recovering from the emotional toll that I had just gone through.
“S-shortly after we arrived at the colony,” I began. “I l-learned I was p-pregnant, G-Glim and I celebrated it with my family, we were going to name our baby after my brother and his wife, Kiyomi. It… It was something we had all come up with [years] before, everything was going just like we had dreamed and talked so much about…”
I squeezed my tail against myself, all those nights at the colony laughing and joking with each other about increasingly outlandish names (ones that we’d never use of course), gone just like that…
“G-Glim and Talnum were busy helping the colony expand by clearing new plots for development and as buffer zones, I helped around with Taylee and Talim when needed but I helped dad with the house most of the time; There were always things that needed to be taken care of after all. Th-then one day in the colony, I f-fainted while picking up Taylee and Talim from school, a f-few [weeks] after that… I had to be sent back here since the colony’s hospital had lost their last equipment shipment to an Arxur raid.” I paused and lowered my voice. “G-Glim stayed behind to take extra assignments, t-to cover expenses, h-he… he was… he was on his last pawful of shifts b-before leave wh-when…”
I took a deep breath and let it out slowly.
“…D-dad was at home looking after the kids, he’d sprained his leg while doing some maintenance, he called me early in the morning there, Talnum and Glim were in some kind of assignment together, and my mother had taken everyone else to get stuff from the market to prepare a farewell meal f-for Glim…” And after that… “The call disconnected abruptly, it had happened before so I… I j-joked to m-myself a-and the nurse that it was p-probably j-just the signal failing because I wasn’t there to maintain things p-properly…”
Tears started forming in my eyes again, Jorge shuffled closer, put his soft claw on my shoulder and gave a light squeeze, his warmth spread throughout me.
“…A few claws later I learnt the truth, that the colony had been raided and that the shelter had been breached, shortly after that, I… I lost my…” I did my best to look him directly in his eyes. “After that… I started planning how to get to the hospital’s roof…” There, a glint of recognition and pain in his eyes. “I was just waiting for the rescue fleet to finish up there, just in case, thankfully… my dad hid Taylee and Talim in one of the [Kitchen] cabinets after taking down the family pictures, since he couldn’t take them to the shelter, he… Taylee told me that he… he begged her to keep quiet before closing the cabinet. She stayed in there with Talim for I don’t even know how long… She… She hasn’t talked about it ever again.”
Another squeeze, then silence and cold as he retracted his claw back towards him, his face turning to another side while taking on some kind of thoughtful intensity.
“S-So… What I’ve been trying to say was… I kind of understand what you’re going through… A-and if you want to talk… I-I’m here?”
A small ‘nod’, and more silence. My eyes were beginning to feel heavy again, that nap hadn’t been enough it seemed.
Jorge harrumphed, causing a bolt of wakefulness to course through me as he began speaking, filling in the silence that had fallen on the room.
“…I don’t think I’m ready yet…” His face turned towards me once more. “But… thank you, for sharing, and for worrying about me, I… If you hadn’t been there when I drifted into and out of sleep…” His eyes widened in a flash. “Wait. ¿You haven’t slept right? ¿Are you feeling OK?”
“I-I t-took a nap after you f-fell asleep…” B-beneath him… “Y-you left a lot of space…” He did, but I couldn’t get to it from under his legs…
“Good, good…” His eyes flicked between me and the door. “Well… I suppose you’ve got stuff to do now. ¿Am I right?” Somehow, the expression that sat now on his face felt forced in a way. I kept quiet as I rummaged through my memories of The Aftermath.
Of course, he was trying to get me out to wallow in peace, just as I did…
That was the last thing he needed right now.
I needed to find a way to get him out of this room…
“Actually… I’m free until my kids get back, I’m used to taking care of chores quickly.”
“Right…” Jorge seemed to slowly steel himself, if I didn’t interrupt me, he’d just ask me to leave directly…
I tried to think faster, but the drowsiness was returning in force, it was no use… Unless…
“H-Hey!” My exclamation startled him, I pressed on to keep the momentum strong. “I uh, I kind of went through my whole supply of [shade root] tea to stay awake…” I didn’t. “And… I don’t really want to drink more energy drinks this Paw, I don’t suppose you have something to stay awake with you?”
Jorge blinked, again, once more, and again one last time before responding.
“¿I… think I have some coffee I could make?” He tilted his head
adorably to one side as he scratched his head with one claw.
“Sounds perfect! Would you please make me some?” I stood up before he could even answer, reached for his idle claw and tugged at it towards me; He stood up in what seemed like a daze out of reflex.
We spent the next few [minutes] browsing the intact shelf, whatever this coffee was, it wasn’t there, the tentatively positive mood that had formed cracked a little as Jorge looked at the shelf barricade before he trudged over to it, stopping beside it where he gestured at vaguely with his claw.
We stepped past the barricade, tried not to look at each other, failed, shuffled in place for a moment and began sifting through the items strewn about the floor in an unspoken agreement.
It wasn’t long until I found myself holding a container that my translator insisted was labeled ‘Instant Coffee’. “Hey,” I started while turning, “is this the ri-” Jorge was looking intensely at something on the floor, I followed his gaze and saw it, the broken remains of the flame projector.
“J-Jorge?” I extended my tail cautiously towards his arm, his claws ceased to strain against themselves following the subtle flinch he had when the tip of my tail made contact with him.
I gave him the ‘Instant Coffee’ I was holding and scooped up the remains to dispose of them properly this time; Jorge held up the container and murmured an affirmation at me, I gestured for him to lead the way and proceeded to follow him to the [kitchen].
I raced my way directly to the trash container, separated the single-use fuel cannister from the remains I was holding, and dumped the inert bits inside; I’d have to take this last part to a proper disposal collection point in town some other time. For now, I glanced at Jorge and tucked it into a discreet spot in the cabinets when he wasn’t looking. Only after that did I notice what a mess I’d made up here despite my best efforts at cleaning up…
Jorge’s eyes were scanning all over the [kitchen], taking in every splotch, every spill and every crusted over utensil I’d used, he lingered noticeably longer on the open and haphazardly arranged containers of his that I had used, finally he stared at the Vanilla Extract bottle with a soft expression, it was the only container that had remained completely spotless and didn’t have a significant amount of its contents drained.
Yet another unreadable expression had settled on his face as he took a big pot and barely put any water in it, the other more reasonably sized ones just too dirty to deal with quickly, before putting it to boil on the [stove top].
“Uh…” He shifted his weight from one leg to the other a few times. “I… never did thank you for the drink earlier ¿Didn’t I?”
“N-no but there’s no ne-”
The patches of fur above his eyes furrowed together.
“You… mentioned before that you entered the program for money…” He looked confused. “¿Why didn’t you just… ask for me to be picked up? You’d have gotten someone else in no time… Hell, I’d still understand if you did it now. You don’t have to go through all this trouble for me.” The confused expression deepened as he gestured at the messy remains around us.
He was waiting for an answer.
“I… w-well I d-did enter for the money… b-but… I don’t want to just replace you… I like being around you. I d-don’t know if we’re there yet… But I’d like to be… f-friends! W-with you someday…” Oh Protector, I couldn’t be more obvious unless I just came out and said it…
“Well for what it’s worth… Thank you Tayla, you don’t know what that means to me right now.” He was looking directly at me, with raw emotion and palpable aliveness, my face started to feel as if I was standing under sunlight…
“I-It was the l-least I could d-do…” It was worth it even though he didn’t seem to understand quite what I accidentally meant before…
I was spared from further embarrassment by the pot of water sizzling violently behind Jorge who turned around in a blur to turn the heat off, while he did that I grabbed two (clean) mugs and set them down near him, though I didn’t move my paws quite fast enough as his claw brushed against me while he moved the mugs closer to him to pour the water on them.
He let the water cool down a little as he put his sugar and ‘Instant Coffee’ containers close to the mugs; He poured the less-than-boiling water into the mugs, stirred in a measure of ‘Instant Coffee’ and a measure of sugar as well.
He passed me a mug with a cryptic warning. “If it’s not to your taste, let me know.” Then he grabbed the other one, sipped a little and waited.
The mischievous glint in his eyes left me no choice, I’d have to play along for now; I raised the mug and sipped…
WHY WAS EVERYTHING THESE HUMANS HAD SO BITTER?
I futilely attempted to remove the grimace from my face; Strangely, the roar of laughter I expected was nowhere to be heard, I found myself looking at Jorge with some amount of concern, though the clear, if understated, smile he sported calmed me down somewhat.
Wordlessly, Jorge reached for my mug and the can of powdered coconut milk, he then proceeded to mix in a little of it in both mugs, turning the liquid from a dark oily brown to a much lighter tone. Finally he mixed in a single drop of his Vanilla Extract in each mug and gave me back mine.
I gave him the best glare I could manage as I pouted at him, he took a deep drink from his own mug and held it up for me to examine.
With a sigh I tried mine again.
Warm. Flowery. Smooth. Bitter but not too much, like a perfectly harvested root. But most importantly of all, I could feel myself waking slightly more already, whether it was just self-suggestion or the drink having an effect so soon I couldn’t tell.
Once more, the reaction I expected from Jorge was missing, this time he seemed to be lost in thought, staring at a distant point in the air.
I took a moment to examine him, whatever he was thinking, it was starting to fester. It’d be better to get him talking “What’s wrong?” I asked.
“It’s no-” He shook his head. “It’s just… I… my dad… he liked to drink his without adding anything, no sugar, no… coconut milk…, and… me and mom used to tease him about it…” He was retreating into himself once more.
I kept drinking my coffee; There had to be something else I could talk with him about…
Jorge straightened up, something about his posture, about the way he held himself had changed.
“Say… Tayla… ¿Can I ask you for a favor?” Despite the confidence he exuded he was running one of his claws over the back of his mug repeatedly.
“W-what kind of favor?”
“There’s something I want, no, something I need to make for the end of the [month], and… I’m going to need your help getting the stuff, I’d just ask you to get it all for me, but honestly that wouldn’t be right.”
“O-ok, but you still haven’t told me what the favor is?”
“I need to buy flowers, candles, a good tablecloth, and see what dishes I can actually make here that’d be good enough.”
“W-What for?” W-Was he? My heart was beating wildly in a peculiar mix of elation, nervousness and apprehension.
“I’m going to make an Altar for Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos), it’s the least I can do for my family all the way over here.”

2023.06.06 04:59 chriscross89 Private Beta - Think Realestate.com.au but for investors!
First and foremost - thanks Reddit fam for all the feedback, input, and refinements. I am happy to announce that Project Picki went into Private Beta - Free to use! After having many of conversations with you, we learned that a) Finding an investment-grade house to live in/rent out becomes gradually more difficult given the low levels of properties going to market/lack of new supply b) Data-driven street-level due diligence and access to local insights are crucial c) Not everyone wants to pay hefty fees to buyer's agents and other intermediaries d) Identifying the best assets in a timely manner matters
So how to tackle this beast?
allows you to filter through over 100,000 listed established dwellings all across Australia (no house and land packages!).
https://preview.redd.it/hsf48w7oab4b1.png?width=2492&format=png&auto=webp&s=ffc1a34655fb99ec2934827302d95cb382335ef0 For each property we display:
- Address and property configuration - Land Size - Picki Suburb Capital Growth Score - Picki Street Score - Days on Market - Current asking price and any price discouning (% since first listed)! - Vendor Distress Score - Target Purchase Price - Appraised Value - Appraised Rent - Estimated Cashflow - Annualised Return - Overall Investment Score
So set your filters according to your budget, preferred location & configuration and you can click on each property address to view a FULL deal sheet for that property. With detailed cashflow analysis and deep dive research.
As this is a BETA, we would love your feedback - it would mean a huge amount if you could come back to me with your thoughts.
Please note, it's not optimized for mobile use (yet) and we are currently on improving the UX (noted). It's absolutely free to use.

2023.06.06 04:58 wevegotthelove 32 [M4F] BC Canada/Anywhere - Looking for someone who doesn't exist
- Voice clip I have a corporate career but I much prefer to game (Diablo 4 has been amazing!) and watch anime/movies/shows. I work to live, I don't live to work. I'm looking for other like-minded individuals who value their free time and hobbies. I love watching MMA but boxing is my favourite physical activity and I've been missing it since my recent upper bicep tendon injury :') I play card games competitively and I like to sing. I'm starting to travel more again and need to decide between South Korea and Europe this year and I'm having a tough time choosing. Have a conference in California this summer that I'm not looking forward to (I'm borderline allergic to the sun) and that would make going to that state twice in one year. I love the rain, struggled with mental health growing up, and I'm big on self improvement. I have a weird interest in longevity research and take pride in looking young for my age, whether it's genetics, lack of sunlight, skincare/supplements or a combination of all of it - I'll take it. I work from home and I have the opportunity to live almost anywhere. European countries with digital nomad visas have been at the top of my list but if I'm being honest I'm a bit nervous making such a big change. If you could introduce yourself if you decide to reach out I would greatly appreciate it. I also like voice chatting/watching shows/movies/anime/gaming if any of those things are something you'd like to do with me.

2023.06.06 04:58 Purple_Waffle Looking for some missing volumes from the Harvard Classics
There were some boxes on Highland Drive labeled “free” that contained the 50+1 volumes of the “Harvard Classics, Five Foot Shelf of Books”. It looks like 7 of the volumes were missing when I grabbed them.
Specifically 2, 11, 14, 16, 17, 22, and 37 were missing.
If you happen to have them, I’d love to get my hands on the full set :) thanks!!

2023.06.06 04:57 SilverSeraph82 Looking for resources for a heist adventure.
I have been DMing for a group for a little over two years and due to some scheduling conflicts over the coming months we are going on a little hiatus. Rather than not play at all I am going to run a short (3-4 session) heist adventure for the available members of the party along with a guest. I'm looking for resources for building the adventure, specifically resources for running a heist. I like building my own adventures so not looking for pre-built adventures just resources. So what materials do you all recommend for running a heist? These can be free or paid, print or digital. If possible please post links.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
