967 That's often how it feels, at any rate.

That's also good relationship advice.

I think empathy is a good survival strategy for domesticated dogs.
967 I've picked up an OLD hobby and started painting models for an out of print war game I own. Should have included something for scale but those are 1" squares on the mat. There are many more talented painters for this hobby but I'm happy with my work. I always tell folks that even a badly painted model looks better on the table than an unpainted one. XD

967 I'm looking for someone interested in doing a swap for another CD audio book. I have a 2.5 hour commute and have been burning through books. Doesn't necessarily have to be post apocalypse. Will mail anywhere in the continental US. It's 29 discs.

Could you describe your security room to us?

"Once" being the operative word there, of course. I wouldn't want to roll those dice every time I was thirsty!

967 description

My sister found this fella (front) shivering on her doorstep a few weeks ago and has been trying to find a home for him ever since. She has lots of strays show up and is usually pretty lucky finding places for them, but no luck with this one so far.

He looks pretty well settled in, doesn't he?

"Rise, thread!"

For those who are reading the Outpost series, does it matter if you read Juggernaut out of order? I just finished #1 in the series and I'm not sure if I should go to #2 or #0.5 next.
967 Yah, it is subjective. I use "Blindness" as an example because it was beyond the pale of anything I'd ever read. As I recall, Nadine is raped in "The Stand", and there is some reference to women accompanying the military column in "Swan Song" being victimised, but those are more oblique descriptions that are easier on the reader, in my opinion. I didn't finish "The Kite Runner" but that was more because I was only (spoiler alert) three pages in and I said to myself, "if this kid gets raped I'm not reading any more of this book".
967 Can anyone advise if this book has graphic depictions of rape? I don't mind allusions or references to it but I'm not interested in reading anything along the lines of Blindness-level descriptions.

967 I read Swan Song first because I had seen The Stand TV series and felt reading The Stand could wait. I like The Stand more, and I've hated everything Stephen King has written with the exception of that novel and The Mist. I didn't care for the God vs. Satan angle either, but forgave it for the amount of time The Stand spent in the period of time immediately following the apocalypse - my favorite time setting for post-apoc novels.
967 I just started The Punisher and am liking it so far. He's been much less manic than he was written in Daredevil. I remember him as being practically unshakeable in the comics, and that's the way I like him.

Right now it's DnD 5th edition, but we've played a few WoD-campaigns earlier, and looks like we'll start a homemade system next year.
You play?"

On a break because the guys I usually play with keep getting into political rants, but ya - D&D 5e, Star Wars, and back in the day I played some Werewolf: The Apocalypse, which I gather is related to WoD. Prior to my exit we were having a lot of fun picking up old '80s era modules off eBay and running through those.

What RPG are you playing?

967 What kind of crafts are you planning, Gertie?
I have a day off and haven't been at my house for a week so I'm gonna vacuum up spiders and play some Minecraft. Survival mode, of course.

967 Nostalgic and relaxed - it makes me feel the same way. The Hobbit and the Harry Potter books do as well; comfort food for the brain. Good stuff to have on hand during divisive, polarizing times.
