A Bad Reflection on You, Part 2

Last night, before the memorandum was distributed, its subject matter was being discussed, and I was enjoying myself until I looked over my right shoulder.

A look from you and I would fall from grace / And that would wipe
the smile right off my face”

She appeared stern to me, so I said, “Have a pleasant tomorrow,” and I wasn’t sure things were okay until she replied, “You, too.”

Humor vampirism 033

My friend, with whom I became friends when he made me an admin of his Pony page, also added me to a group for Rooster Teeth, an animation studio which produced Red vs Blue and RWBY among others. My friend is not the author of the following note.

Thankfully, someone in the thread explained the initialism M.D.B. in plain language; a post where one is given a hypothetical situation wherein one is offered a Million Dollars But one must tolerate an undesirable condition or situation as part of the wager:

“IMPORTANT ADMIN MDB POST RULING, PLEASE READ

Hey folks! To add to the post Gavin made, I just want to shed a little more light on the issue of the MDB posts.

Some of you will remember a while ago we had an issue arise where people were upset with lewd RWBY posts. We ended up with a divided community and had an overwhelming amount of people messaging us saying they were uncomfortable with the posts and that they were making them no longer wish to participate in the group. This is obviously something we never, ever want to be the case, and we ended up having to make a very hard ruling to fix the issue. We’re in a similar situation now.

Every year when a new season of MDB starts, scenario posts tend to flood the group. These are all well and good, and we 100% support this kind of community-building activity. However, there is an immense issue with them considering Facebook’s algorithm for relevant posts. Basically, the most active posts will be the posts that are featured most and have an overwhelmingly higher chance to be featured outside of the group. This can cause MDB posts to appear incredibly spammy and makes it so that other content doesn’t appear as often. This is a shortcoming on Facebook’s part really, but it’s, unfortunately, one we have to deal with as part of the platform.

To try and rectify this, I’ll be making a master post for all MDB content moving forward. It will be the stickied post for the duration of this season of MDB, and we ask that any scenarios you would like to present to the group be posted on that post. We will be deleting any MDB content posted outside of that post, and I will do my best to try to copy/paste scenarios posted outside of that post to the comments of the master post for discussion, and tag the original poster.

Thank you all so much for your fantastic feedback and criticisms. Please never hesitate to message me with questions, and have a fantastic day!

Lonely is the Knight, Part Five

“Oh, no, Lois. That’s the beauty of part 5.
It’s so intense it jumps right over parts 3 and 4.

“WORDS: They hold so much power. Make your words your superpower and use them for good. 🤨🧐🤔

Speak a kind or encouraging word (or lots of them) to someone today, you may just tip the scale and make their day go from bad/blah/ok to amazing. It takes you only a short time to speak the words but the impact of positive words on the listener can make a lasting positive impression.

Go out there today and love, encourage and speak light into someone’s darkness. 🤗”

“Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord,
nor of me his prisoner, (2 Timothy 1:8-9)
but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God,
who saved us and called us to a holy calling,
not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace,
which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began,”

Whirlwind weekend 041

Tuesday, I asked, “Mußte ich am Samstag arbeiten?”

The short answer was yes, yet only eight of sixteen possible overtime hours were required, so I have an option to work next Saturday and had an option to not work today if I had chosen. Being functional, taking a break, having a snack, and looking at daylight at noon on a Saturday made me nostalgic for those PreACT sessions in high school.

Sunday, I feel nearly as bad as I did on Thursday when I had to go home early. Saturday night, my friend, whom I mention in “Celebratory note 003,” had a celebration for his fiftieth birthday at The Original Margarita’s Restaurant:

“So, last night I did get out and celebrate my birthday, and had a blast. Big thanks go out to everyone who was there – Jennie, Cyndi, Jennifer, Ben, Chris, and Kris. Good friends and great food. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – there’s nothing better in this world than hanging out with people who make you smile. I love you guys! Extra thanks, actually, go to Cyndi, for putting up with me all afternoon, too.”

Illness caused me to go home early on Thursday night. My coughing and sneezing could likely be why The Girl Next Door decided to Just Ghost on Friday night.

After working both Friday and Saturday, I did not want to expose Bennigan or my intermittent coughing to ruin how anyone would experience ‘Justice League,’ so I canceled our plans Sunday. While I also canceled with Josh, I have caught up my rest.

“For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)”
