The answer is, mate, because I want to do you slowly. There has to be a bit of sport in this for all of us. In the psychological battle stakes, we are stripped down and ready to go. I want to see those ashen-faced performances; I want more of them. I want to be encouraged. I want to see you squirm.

I just got zero for an assignment because I 'incorrectly submitted it'

For this assignment, I taught myself how to use sony vegas pro with zero prior experience. And yet, I couldn't work out how to use the software they wanted me to submit ~*personal reflections*~ in, because apparently they're too cool for microsoft word.

This is a finance subject I have to do. gently caress University.

it has been the day from hell for me. the baby goes to take his afternoon nap at 1 pm and after 15 minutes the dog, laying right next to him, starts barking loudly because he thought he heard a person walk by outside. the baby wakes up and is fussy and tired but unwilling to go back to sleep for 4 hours. during that time, the slightest thing drives him into a tantrum wherein he throws his head at the ground, and then gets even more upset. then he finally falls back asleep, but only sleeps for an hour. in that time, the cat comes in and hangs out. when the kid wakes up, the cat gets territorial and hisses and scratches the kid any time he gets near. the kid seems unwilling to learn, and repeatedly tries to pull the cat's tail, gets scratched, and cries. the cat refuses to give ground, even getting closer to the kid a few times. eventually I manage to get the cat to leave the room (he took a few swipes at me on principle).

while I'm cooking dinner, the kid pulls off his diaper, pees on the floor, and slips and falls in it. I clean him up, get him changed, and while I go grab the mop, he slips and falls in the pee again. after I mop, I go grab a towel to dry the floor, and in that 10 second time, he runs over to the just-mopped area and slips and falls again. there's nothing on that side of the room, even. the only reason he was running over there was because I was trying to keep him away.

I have no idea how single parents survive, because I was counting the minutes till my wife got home.

Our kids should hang out.

My youngest yesterday tantrumed because he was tired and his sleep was interrupted too. So he alternated between screaming that he did want an apple and that he didn't want an apple. Whenever I took it to him he would scream no, would throw it away from him and flail. So I'd go to put it on the bench and then he'd scream that he wanted it and flail. So I thought I'd be clever put it on the coffee table near him but no he then would slump onto the floor in a screaming sobbing mess because the apple was near him, but he didn't want it not hear him.

That went on for 45 minutes.

In the end I ate the apple in front of him and got him another. He screamed when I started eating it but was happy with the new apple and ate it

I think I would say to my daughters if they were to ask me this question... A shitpost is the greatest gift that you can give someone, the ultimate gift of giving and don't give it to someone lightly, that's what I would say.

he hasn't quite worked out how it works but a couple times he's tugged at it in just the right way and got out. it's always a disaster.

thankfully we both take turns doing the parenting thing, so we both understand how insane it is.

I'm sooo glad he hasn't tried that yet. My friends son did it once and he coined the incident as the 'poonami'

I was actually thinking about this yesterday when I visited my olds and was reminded of the neighbours daughter who as an intellectual disability. She does similar antics, pooing / peeing in their driveway, out the front. The neighbours driveway I mean, not my parents.

The roll has vanished.

the -other- roll, from her first throw that missed a bit low, is still on the next balcony down, ready to confuse the gently caress out of whoever lives there.

good arm though if she got it on the second try. I can't imagine toilet paper rolls are the most aerodynamic thing to throw across the street and down a few stories.

Four stories beneath the one I photographed yesterday, and a massive penthouse balcony above that I once nearly hit with a champagne cork. We could also conceivably pull off some trick shots to get balconies on our own building. There are also a couple of courtyards and a pool that she'd really need to wind up to hit.

I'm sure this was extremely stressful for you but the mental image of a child slipping in his own pee over and over again is very funny

actually I was thinking about it, I think they actually would throw very well. they're very light but have enough heft / density to not get caught by the wind easily and you're not gonna break a window or anything. you can also write stuff on them.

much like Beet ate the apple out of spite, the third time he slipped and busted his rear end, my reaction was less concern and more confusion. "did you think it would be different this time???"
