Sometimes things get overwhelming. Saving the world is as draining and frustrating as it is uplifting and invigorating; sometimes just plain old work gets utterly bogged down; even the nuts and bolts of being a supervillain can be unwieldy. How does your character maintain their drive and energy to achieve their goals?
So today's DE is: What would your characters splash out a fortune on, if only they had a fortune to splash around? For the fabulously wealthy characters, what's a big expenditure that they feel genuinely satisfied with?
Eric and Pam have some very bad days.
The crew of the Ghost causes trouble and has serious discussions about what they're doing.
A creature is loose in Milliways.
This ended up a OOM heavy post so share what EPs and threads you've finished and are following.
This daily entertainment post was inspired by the cuddly toy Bastet from the British Musuem which my actual living cats are now revering.
Realized it's been a little bit longer than usual since I posted here last. Things are going okay; I'm posting and reblogging (mostly reblogging) on Tumblr. I'm also getting things together for online handmade jewelry sales- last week I got my business certificate! Turns out Workbar, the co-working space company, has a 'community' option for people who only need a physical place of business on a very limited basis, and the city of Boston seems to be okay with that as an address (it is, after all, commercial real estate). I'll be setting up an account at Aftcra.com to sell stuff. Aftcra is an online craft seller that's based in Wisconsin, and their big distinguishing points are: 1. All sellers based in the United States. 2. No 'vintage' or 'antique' stuff, and no craft supplies, just handmade items. 3. No listing fees, you get charged when you sell. 4. Smaller than Etsy so you don't get completely lost in a sea of other sellers. I get the feeling on Etsy that the size of the jewelry section is on par with the population of Hoboken...
Anyway. I'll let you know when I have things available.
In the meantime, on other fronts, I am getting closer to my first solo flight. We've been practicing autorotations the last several lessons and this weekend my instructor wants me to come in for ground class so I'll be prepping for the written exam- after you solo you need to pass a written exam and an oral exam and get some night hours and solo hours and a cross-country flight before you can take your checkride with the FAA examiner. So there's that. And also I am dealing with a next-door neighbor who represents the first time I've actually called the police on someone, because ( it gets a little gross here. ) We'll see what happens from here on that front.
That's it for now. Hope your day is going well.
Apps will be processed soon. Thanks you so much for your patience.
In the meantime...
HAPPY HOUR SHIFTS for this week include:

Tomorrow (which would be Tuesday)
First to claim, gets first pick to serve!
Has your character ever been stuck with a job or a task that they were really, really not suited for? How did it go? Was it a long-term thing, the whole premise of the character, or just a one-off WHY DID YOU ASK ME TO BABYSIT?!?! situation? .....Did they survive?
At least the high school skills haven't died completely?
Hi to all our friends who play here this Bastille Day. I know they're not your days (for our readers, those are the 5th and 6th of June), but I wanted to recognize it all the same. Your health.
In that spirit: what would your character defy authority--immediate or ultimate--for? What would your character die for?
In terms of this week, Milliways, lots of fascinating OOMs and hard days for lots of characters.
Barry continues to have tough days.
Chirrut and Baze get each other.
Rose and Poirot are charming.
Now what have you finished and have you been loving reading.
First: trailers! The Dark Tower! (BWEE!!!) Some... other stuff! that I don't remember because it's not relevant to anything I'm a fan of! Justice League! which got an "Awesome!" from one very small audience member. I am there for Aquaman (I mean, the Momoa, come on) and Wonder Woman. Judgement reserved about the rest, though I like Ezra Miller a lot, so I'm willing to believe him as the Flash.
( and here there be spoilers. capslocky spoilers )
I'm back from vacation!
Which means a host of different things, but most importation for this particular post it means a return to regular Happy Hour postings on Mondays!

First to claim, gets first choice of shifts.
I'm going to add a Comment/Concern comment.
Should you have either of those you'd like to address please to be making a thread under there!
Go on, boast a little, what’s a bit of RP that sticks in your memory as a character highlight? And throw around some compliments, too--what are some plot arcs or character moments that you loved in someone else's RP?
