Friend's currently in the hospital, Dad may be looking for another job soon, I can't sleep, and I was on another forum and some piece of poop decided to post spoilers for The Last Jedi.

For skreeonk's sake!

Did you get one of the images that has nothing to do with Star Wars, but has a spoiler for it in the image itself? Because that's what I got...

Will do. Thanks. She's in much better shape than she was yesterday, so we're hoping this means she'll be back on her feet soon.

Condolences, SG. It's no fun being in the hospital

As for Star Wars spoilers, I would certainly like to avoid them at all costs. But if I do get spoiled, I'm not going to be too angry. Now Infinity War is a different story: if any jackass decides to spoil anything from that movie for me, torches will be lit

Should have been done at work three hours ago, but I have been waiting to do a color correction pass on a cut, and the producer and editor have been working late. They just handed the cut over.

About twenty minutes ago, the boss texted and asked me if I'd been able to explain to the night assist how to do the color pass. He had no idea I was staying late to do it myself, apparently.

So I get to come in late tomorrow, but... my wife is dropping me off, and she has a doctor's appointment she has to make, so while I do get to come in late, I only get to come in one hour late, when by the time I leave tonight I'm sure I will have been here over 4 hours past the end of my shift.

Ugh.

I Wouldn’t say being spoiled about The Last Jedi is what made me upset, what really ruined my day was the plot itself. I’m a huge Star Wars fan, I know basically everything from legends to current canon, and the series itself is a huge influence as to why I want to be a film maker, which I’m currently going to college for. But this plot, what this film does to the characters is a disgrace. If I continue, I might spoil something so I’ll just end it here and just say that this is probably the first time I’ve actually disliked a SW film, and that’s saying a lot.

My wife had to go to the ER, cuz her knee gave out, so now she has to wear an immobilizer and use crutches to get around for a while. And I think I have the flu. Good times 'round here... :|

I definitely don't want to be spoiled, but I can say that as someone similar (I'm re-reading the Hand of Thrawn duology right now), you are very much articulating my non-spoiled fears toward TLJ. One thing that I haven't been able to get out of my head when reading through Legends, much as I'm only re-reading the Batman era and so deeply cherish it... I can't NOT remember the horrible things that will be done to all these characters in NJO and beyond. Even if I try to ignore it, that's always going to be in the back of my head, retroactively tainting the experience of what came before with the knowledge of where they eventually took it.

Went outside to get the chickens out of the yard. I noticed they were following me so I decided to lead them on a merry jaunt far from the yard before doubling back to the yard and closing the gate before they could get back in. I just rounded the corner of the truck when the rooster rammed into me like a comet. He made a few strikes which I tried to parry by kicking him before grabbing a stick and preparing to beat the dust fro his feathers. The stick broke midair on the first swing, so I made for the garden shed for the shovel and ran the rooster a few laps around the garden, all the while using vocabulary somewhere between Yiddish and Klingon.
I'm still a little rattled.

No way I could justify the expense of using one of those to get from the Valley to downtown LA.

Well this happened last week, but I got to thinking about it again today. Long story short:

My mom is in liver failure. The chemotherapy and medication she's been taking on and off for 10 years, destroyed her body. There's nothing more doctor's can do. She's gonna have hospice service at her house, nurse will come once a week. She's doing ok right now, not in any pain or suffering, but it's a thing now.

It was such a good day that day too. It snowed in where I lived, and it hadn't done so since 1985, it was cool. I ordered some pizza, was watching Fraiser, and then I got the news.

All my sympathy. Had to go through this process with my dad a couple of years ago, then with my mother-in-law a few months after that.

I hope you can get some quality time with her, during the time she has left. And I hope you have a good support system in place.
