Hey there lovely people of Toronto, hope you're all doing great. 2021 is around the corner. It's about time we bid goodbye to this clusterfuxk of a year lol.
A bit about me, I'm a software engineer. South Asian - indian. While I'm not softwaring away, I like to read books, currently reading Roald Dahl's short stories. (He's one cheeky author! Gotta love the guy) Like wine, tequila, making amateurish cocktails for my date, make my date laugh so hard that she makes snorting noises :P
I'm currently in the US, and will be moving to Toronto in Mar-Apr 2021. I'm looking for someone to explore the place with, have fun, and we click. I'm a serial monogamist, so, I'm looking for something long term, hopefully you are too. Had my share of casual relationships, and not really in the mood for it anymore. More than happy to send pics once we start talking. PM or chat away, and let's see if we can get the conversation out of reddit.

2020.11.17 16:48 Sneezer_Weezer123 A crooked path of desolated memories

(sorry I know I've been gone for a while, I have a ton of poems to post!)

I was at a party everyone looked so happy I was happy dancing with you forever it seemed now I'm- I'm- I... I don't know I don't remember this place all that well so dark my memory is so foggy I hear static should I follow it should I run from it? distortion all around I wish it'd stop I wanna go back there's no way I'd make it so in this endless dark void that I am starting to remember only faintly I walk on I'm scared of something I don't know what I just know it's here with me a piano that's it that's what was awaiting me in the distance the pianos gentle cry grows closer with each step though the sounds of the piano's distress are so beautifully put I can't trust it's gentle weeping I try to hold back the urge to listen to it but there's no use the music is too powerful I give in against my will I see the doors the doors to the party maybe I was supposed to trust the pain of the keys all along must've been worried about nothing at all
"Oh thank god, I'm back dahling I thought I'd never see you again!-" you aren't him, are you? I quickly jolt back you wear his face you share his smile but you aren't him none of this is actually real... the piano realizes I've noticed its power over me to drag me back into a moment a never even wanted a figment a moment that's not even real what day is it? what year is it? where am I? what am I!? Answer me, please! the piano won't say a thing the party scene begins to fade I'm surrounded by blankets of white I loved these winters we use to share dahling I want to belive believe I can stay here forever however, I must be going now or else I'll pay the ultimate price for being stuck in dreams that don't exist which is my life
the sounds of the piano keep bringing me back to the night of the party oh how I wish I could remember it in more detail I don't want to dance with this thing in my mind any longer I ask them nicely to leave they claim to be who they are not my lover I've already said that is not who they were to me they stormed off taking the very life from the room with them all that's left is frozen and colorless is that how I felt? possibly I know I wasn't in love with you only who I thought you were to be yes it's all coming back to me why I loved a face I never loved for so long I'm not at the party any more I'm dancing with him he seems nervous I don't know why I ask he's speaking I can't hear him though of course, I can hear him I just choose not too that's why he left me I was scared to hear so when he spoke I never listened hearing always scared me as a child, I heard all too much you love somebody else somebody who listens I understand is what I tell myself that's not what leaves my mouth the record speeds up as my blood begins to boil he heard too much of what I truly felt he storms out the record abruptly ends oh dahling it seems I am alone again all on my own
I'm on a date with them now that person I never called by their name but somebody else's in my mind all I had to do to fix everything was convince me it all stayed the same it never had changed so I am found here, next to him at the same movie theater we used to go to we had our first kiss here isn't it grand how I won't have to face the fact that you're gone because as long as he's here I'll just love somebody else who in my head is yourself it's going so well I'm not lying to myself now here we stand in his garden your garden in my eyes I made it look the same nothing out of place to how it once was he'll never have to know that though If he wants it can just be his garden anything to keep the truth from slipping out anything that will stop him from hearing to much he kneeled on one knee I felt sick never once did he do this no this isn't how it was supposed to be not how this day went "Marry me?" it echoed through me like a broken tune "Marry me?" "Marry me?" "Marry me?" Even so, I'm put under a spell in this very moment thankfully I convinced myself it was you so with a joyful yes it was such a mess an absolute wreck my emotions that day after he left
because he, by stepping out of my path of life with you I was trying to relive slowly cracked my fragmented reality I was being forced to admit maybe you'd moved on maybe he was never you all along behind that face, I thought belonged to you could've been a totally different person now I'm brought back I'm frozen in fear I watch my past play out in front of me as I broke down at the dance of my own wedding I screamed I hit I kicked because no matter how much I wanted to believe no matter how much I wish to stay like this forever I finally knew he wasn't you heartbroken he stormed off without me a storm begins to brew between him and I we haven't gotten a divorce we're both too scared to hear too much of what either of us really thought of each other is this what the brink of insanity feels like? I wonder how crazy one would have to be to keep up with such a story for so long your lover never left he's never been gone always chose to stay here with you we eventually no longer lived out our story there was nothing left to live we'd gone through it all through the relationship, we had from day one to the last a million times over until there was nothing left until we played out the final scene for the very last time
where we danced in your living room to the very same record we used to play the room almost identical to how you once had it he wasn't the same way as happy to see me I asked him so calmly "Dahling, do you love someone else?" my suspicions turned out to be true something happened but this is where it faded black I can't remember what I did I heard it was something terrible not according to the scene I flew off my hinges reliving the day I lost my lover as well as my mind was too much for me I don't remember how it played out in full I don't know if I ever will a memory too painful to recall the piano refuses to open up the events of what had taken place its ivories whispered to me along with taking off your mask of who you tried so desperately to appear to be a happy normal person you ripped off his face that's all the piano would say I buried their body along with it not my past I'll repeat our lives till I die every time with someone new until the police find piles of you under my floorboards I'll always be with a smile reliving over and over again the happy days we used to share today I killed the thirteenth you I still have no plans to discontinue some days I give into the piano as its ivories say "it's not really him" those unlucky souls go sooner than later if they can't play a convincing role they'll just have to go that's what I always say only the best can take your place dahling I won't settle for less than perfect if they don't satisfy that's too bad
the other day I met your wife she's pretty quiet the good listener as well the same lady you left me for all those years ago I grew jealous I'm truly sorry I had to make an exception kill someone who wasn't playing the role of yourself but the role of your lover that's right, she wasn't very faithful to you I would know because I was the one who met her at a table for two she told me so much about you she didn't want you finding out well at least now her secret has been buried with her in the cold bottomless soil where she will have my best regards burning in the deepest pits of hell for what she's done to us I was at least sweet enough to come to her funeral she didn't even deserve that however, I pitied her in a way the poor girl in pain for the rest of well, eternity having her a farewell was the very least I could do for shipping her off to fate so early I stayed in the very back of the crowd I can't believe so many people could love a homewrecker like her hundreds of people in attendance for her early departing what a shame not even my own mother would attend my funeral hearing too much was an understatement with her she hated every part of me that lived because every time she saw me living it only reminded her how fast she was fading away her unhappiness was always quick to blame on me "Your father killed himself because of you!" "He would still love me if you didn't exist!" "It's your fault I cannot live!" I loved my mother I still do however, she doesn't love me I'll never forget how much tears I was in when I moved out because I already knew once I left she'll never speak of or to me again once I left that was it
as I opened the door I could hear her calling after me "I'm sorry come back!" she was scared of losing the only thing that loved her cold dead heart she'd keep me there in pain with her sharp words forever if she could because as much as she hated me I was the only one that kept coming back in forgiveness as I leave the funeral I wondered how she was now if she ever fixed her shattered state or if it eventually consumed her that is why I fear speaking every time I hear someone speak I'm afraid of hearing her voice today Is the last day before our breakup I'm always more down on this day knowing what tomorrow in our lives bring it's gloomier today than usual though having my mother be brought up in memory always ruins my day I'd reach out but I don't keep in contact I really have never heard from her since that day fourteen bodies laying under my floorboards today the smell actually builds up quite the stench I always have it hidden fairly well I don't know what happened whatever it is must be resolved I have visitors today two officers will drop by in a few knocking up on my door I overheard as I was tending the garden he screamed very loud I will admit a few minutes if by that time the smell isn't clean I'll be paying the price the price being my life so I clean I sprayed I scrubbed I just couldn't fix it couldn't fix it even a bit the cops are knocking this is it then I realize I've been saved with a smile of relief I open the door
the odor is something so profound I started to worry about how much they would buy into my story of me just being polite offering them a cup of coffee I couldn't let these worries show through me or I'd be on the news wildly misunderstood I would be "would you care for a cup of coffee?" I could tell they were skeptical to a slight I could tell they didn't want to but they chose to be stupidly polite accepting the offer with over the top fake delight I made my way to the kitchen where I hoped they weren't to follow slipping eternal sleep into their drinks I gave them each a cup they were very hesitant just taking a sip but a sip was enough for them to slip into their guaranteed passings a few minutes that's all it took for them to lift the floorboards revealing what they would see a pile of yous who at the end of the script, were all killed for choosing me they were so disturbed they couldn't even move a thing but their heads shifting from the sight of my eerie smile back to the stacked bodies until it kicked in just in time the sleeping potion taking over in great effect, they fell onto the pile and died I knew the cops would eventually be reported missing so as they come looking for me I mustn't be around I took the nearest train of changed plans to the small town where the real you rested in grief still missing her you didn't want to talk at first your wife missing somewhere her body rests somewhere you'll never know is a lot for you to handle me coming out of nowhere was something you were in no state to deal with however, I guess it couldn't hurt to let me into your life one last time one last time indeed I've grown saddened with greed I cannot have my way with you so I had to take you with me a bullet for you a bullet for me together may we rest happily for all of eternity
the police will find me I realized it was just a matter of time so I asked for us to dance to our record one final time one last song from the pianos crackling tune before we both go so we danced until the song ended until we couldn't dance anymore I guess if it was anyone else hearing this story they'd really wonder why I couldn't love somebody else I couldn't move on I couldn't let you pass me by its because you were something so special I would never share the same with anyone else alone forever until you saw me as someone as lonely as you we shared such a connection our pasts branching from the same hurt in the end, you might've been the stronger one hearing me out despite the fear of hearing that's the only place we differed two people so perfect for each other how could they be made for anybody else but themselves my memory is finally clear clearer then ever as hand in hand every day of my painful life flashed as we died together

2020.10.24 08:36 the_gerund Retrospective: PSV beating Feyenoord 10-0, 10 years ago today

Every year when I see the date 24-10, I am reminded of the worst ever day in the life of a Feyenoord supporter. Today marks 10 years since PSV beat Feyenoord 10-0. You may have heard about it back then or seen posts about it on October 24th since. I thought it'd be interesting to look back on that match, its context, the aftermath and what became of the players from that match.
The match If you want to watch it, you can: see just the goals here, or see the match in its entirety here.
I'm not here to defend the terrible performance, but I vaguely remember Feyenoord having some injuries at this time. Because of this, more experienced players like Ron Vlaar (concrete defender and captain), Sekou Cissé (perpetually injured winger), and Jon Dahl Tomasson (came back injured from the 2010 World Cup) did not appear. Instead of these, Feyenoord fielded a number of youngsters. Feyenoord had a bad start to the 2010-11 season, with only 2 wins in the first 9 games. PSV, on the other hand, hadn't lost a game yet.
The first half was bad, but not 10-0 bad. Reserve captain Leroy Fer overstretched his leg trying to get to a ball, and had to be subbed off after 14 minutes. After 24 minutes, PSV scored 1-0. Between the 26th and 34th minute, Feyenoord's right back Kelvin Leerdam got two yellow cards and was ejected. Right winger Ruben Schaken was then subbed off to add another defender: Bruno Martins Indi. Only 4 minutes later, he was the one to deflect a cross and score an own goal: 2-0.
The second half started awful, with PSV doubling the score within 5 minutes. 10 minutes later, and the score is 6-0. PSV supporters start chanting "10, 10, 10". Feyenoord subbing off young striker Luc Castaignos for defensive midfielder Adil Auassar (his first appearance) after 7-0 didn't change anything: PSV score their 8th and 9th. The fans keep chanting, and in the 87th minute the humiliation is complete as they score their 10th. They even score an 11th, but the goal is cancelled for offside and the referee immediately ends the match after that decision.
It's obviously the worst defeat in Feyenoord's history; the previous record was 8-2 vs Ajax.
The aftermath PSV supporters crowd together near the scoreboard, wanting to take a picture of the historical score. Feyenoord goalie Rob van Dijk always looked depressed, but now it really shows. Second reserve captain Luigi Bruins does his best to thank the travelling fans for coming, but the Rotterdam crowd are only cursing and gesturing wildly at him. He has never been particularly popular to begin with.
Every football fan who doesn't support Feyenoord joins in on the jokes: 010 (Rotterdam's area code for phone numbers) loses 10-0 in the 10th match of the season in the 10th month of 2010, after going down to 10 men. International media pick up on the story: how is this possible between two clubs that are among the biggest 3 clubs in the country in terms of supporters? 2010 was already a bad year for Feyenoord, with serious financial problems, and now this. Feyenoord's trainer Mario Been openly questions if he's still the right man for the job, but the board later reassures him that he won't be fired.
People also start pitying Feyenoord. Most of the players are young and naive, and people feel bad for how bad they just got hammered. The main target for pity is left winger Georginio Wijnaldum, who continued to attempt his dribbles past PSV's right back even when they're six or seven down.
4 days later, the club gets a financial boost: a group of Feyenoord-loving investors start a foundation called 'Vrienden van Feyenoord' (Friends of Feyenoord) and buy 49% of the shares. The leader of this group, Pim Blokland, also appeals to Feyenoord fans to help the club from going bankrupt. By donating €10, you can get a vote in the foundation.
A week after that dreadful October 24th, Feyenoord play a home game against VVV (summary here), usually not a very threatening opponent. The atmosphere in the stadium is strange: you might expect everyone to be cynical, and cynicism is a common thing at Feyenoord, but for the most part, people are supportive and wholesome. More than ever, players and fans get the feeling that they're in this together, and in the 12th minute, You Never Walk Alone is sung.
It's not a great match, and there are no goals in the first half. The second half starts with some good chances for Feyenoord and one goal being cancelled despite having crossed the goal line. In the 64th minute, Wijnaldum finally scores 1-0 by lobbing the keeper and the crowd's reaction after that goal feels like the most 'relieved' celebration I've ever experienced. Another collective sigh of relief is heard after Brazilian defender André Bahia heads in 2-0 and the win is secured. The game ends in 3-0 and Feyenoord has some of its dignity back.
Towards the end of the season, Feyenoord play PSV again, this time at home. Feyenoord are very motivated: besides revenge, they have a shot at reaching the play-off spots to qualify for European games, and they can damage PSV's chances of winning the league. All of this fueled them to beat PSV 3-1, somewhat helped by a questionable red card for PSV's Orlando Engelaar. Partly because of this loss, PSV finished 3rd, 4 points behind league champions Ajax.
Feyenoord end the 2010-11 season in 10th position (there's that number again), the lowest in 20 years. After that season, Mario Been leaves the club in July 2011, after some sort of coup. Apparently Feyenoord's players took a vote to determine if they still supported him, and 13 out of 18 players said they didn't.
The resurrection In the years that follow, Feyenoord get back up there. New trainer Ronald Koeman gets Feyenoord back to 2nd and 3rd place finishes, the massive debt is gradually lessened, and the fans love new strikers John Guidetti and later Graziano Pellè. Ask any Feyenoord fan about Guidetti or Pellè these days and I guarantee you they will start smiling immediately.
The 10-0 becomes more and more a thing of the past, and the resurrection is complete when Feyenoord start winning prizes again under Giovanni van Bronckhorst's guidance. Dirk Kuyt comes home to win a cup in one season (2015-16) and a league title in the next (2016-17), the first league title in 18 years. Robin van Persie also returns to win a cup and end his career in style. Feyenoord are finally back where they belong.
The players Here are some of the players that had a role in the 10-0 game, and what became of them afterwards.
Stefan de Vrij, central defender, 18/28 years old He started out as a right wing back in his early Feyenoord games, but later grew into the centre-back position. In those early years he could seem a bit naive for a defender, but I had a soft spot for him and eventually he became a solid mainstay. Moving to Italy worked wonders for his development as a defender, where he played well for Lazio Roma and Internazionale. When he returned to PSV's stadium in 2018 for a Champions League match with Inter, he admitted that he hadn't told his teammates about the 10-0 he suffered there: "Maybe a few of them know, but it's not something to brag about. It's one of the worst memories in my career. It hurts and thinking about it still does."[1] In 2020, De Vrij was named the best defender in the Serie A and he reached the final of the Europa League. Apart from a 2017 Supercoppa with Lazio Roma, he has not won any prizes and apart from the 2014 World Cup he hasn't made a true impact on the national team (with De Ligt and Van Dijk being the favoured defending duo), but has nevertheless grown into a very successful player.
[1]
Georginio Wijnaldum, left wingeattacking midfielder, 19/29 years old Also someone who could be considered a symbol for Feyenoord's naive youth. He left Feyenoord for PSV in July 2011 (and got some hate for that move), but he did donate a large sum of money to Vrienden van Feyenoord, as a way of thanking the youth academy. He stayed with PSV until 2015, before moving to England, relegating with Newcastle United but winning the Premier League and Champions League with Liverpool, while growing into a mainstay in the Dutch national team. Absolutely the most successful player to come out of this Feyenoord squad.
Leroy Fer, midfielder, 20/30 years old His injury sustained in the PSV match lasted some time and as a result he had a rough season. In the summer of 2011, he publicly announced that he was interested in leaving Feyenoord for FC Twente, who had consistently been finishing top 2 since the 2007-08 season. Just like Wijnaldum, he was harrassed for this move, with one person going as far as sending a mourning card with Fer's own name on it to his house. Fer left for Twente, where he played until 2013. He then moved to England and relegated with Norwich, QPR and Swansea. In 2019, he returned to Feyenoord, asking supporters to forgive him for the way he left all those years ago. He has been pretty strong on our midfield last season and has scored some important goals. He is perhaps best known on this sub for accidentally buying a horse at an auction before realizing that he had nowhere to keep it.[2]
[2]
Kelvin Leerdam, right back/defending midfielder, 20/30 years old Feyenoord would have lost with 11 men on the pitch too, but Kelvin Leerdam must have felt some guilt for his red card. Leerdam never quite made an impact as a right back at Feyenoord, and he was a lot better off as a midfielder once he left for Vitesse in 2013. As of 2017, he plays in the MLS for Seattle Sounders FC. From what I've heard, he has been pretty well utilized there.
Bruno Martins Indi, central defendeleft back, 18/28 years old After being subbed in to reinforce the defence, he scored an own goal and was easily mocked. He developed himself very well at Feyenoord in the years that followed, playing mostly as a left wing back and playing some national team games as well. In 2014, he got his dream move to FC Porto. Martins Indi was born in Portugal and speaks the language fluently. He had a spot in Porto's starting 11 for half a year before losing it and was later loaned to Stoke City. He transferred to Stoke in 2017 and has been playing Championship with them since 2018. Most recently, he returned to the Eredivisie when AZ loaned him this month. Martins Indi also became somewhat of a meme after making this face to Diego Costa during the 2014 World Cup.
Luc Castaignos, striker, 18/28 years old He had the unfortunate job of scoring goals for a team in awful form without their regular striker. Despite the terrible season, he was widely regarded as a huge future prospect, and in 2011, he moved to Internazionale. Being the fan that I was, I bought an Inter jersey with Castaignos and #30 on a sketchy knock-off website. He didn't give me much reason to wear the jersey proudly though, as he never broke through in Italy. He returned to the Netherlands to play for FC Twente in 2012, left for Eintracht Frankfurt in 2015, moved to Sporting CP in 2016, and was loaned to Vitesse in 2017. He has failed to make much of an impact in any of these endeavors. After 2019, he played for Gyeongnam FC in Korea, and is a free agent as of last month.
Jonathan Reis, striker, 21/31 years old PSV's Brazilian hattrick scorer has a tragic career path that I thought was interesting to include. He had already gotten into a conflict with the club back in 2009 over an injury that he could have prevented, but in January of 2010 he was fired after using cocaine and refusing the club's offer of treatment. He did accept this treatment later and was given a new one-year contract in July 2010. In September, he was caught driving under the influence. In October, he scored that hattrick, and in December, he suffered a serious knee injury. PSV had the chance to renew his contract, but did not want to take a risk on an injured player and Jonathan Reis was left a free agent in 2011. He joined Vitesse for two years, but got into conflicts with the club there as well. Reis returned to Brazil for a 10-day spell with EC Bahia, as well as playing for Tombense, Campolina and Brumadinho. He tried out for clubs in Kazakhstan and Tunisia, joined the Turkish Boluspor in 2015, two clubs in the Japanese second division, and shortly appeared in Indonesia in 2019, but his knee injury prevented him from playing. That is when he retired and became a youth trainer for Brumadinho.
Thanks for reading. I know this is poorly structured because I wrote this whenever I felt like it over the course of 2 years. But I hope you enjoyed reading this nevertheless.

2020.10.23 18:47 Sneezer_Weezer123 The crooked path of desolated memories (Happy Spooktober!)

I was at a party
everyone looked so happy
I was happy
dancing with you forever it seemed
now I'm-
I'm-
I...
I don't know
I don't remember this place all that well
so dark
my memory is so foggy
I hear static
should I follow it
should I run from it?
distortion all around
I wish it'd stop
I wanna go back
but there's nowhere to go back to now
so in this endless dark void
that I am starting to remember only faintly
I walk on
I'm scared of something
I don't know what
I just know it's here with me
a piano that's it
that's what was awaiting me in the distance
the pianos sobs grow nearer
though the sounds of the piano's distress are so beautifully put
I can't trust it's gentle weeping
I try to hold back the urge to listen to it
there's no use
the music is too powerful
I give in against my will
I see the doors
the doors to the party
maybe I was supposed to trust the pain of the keys after all
I must've been worried about nothing at all

"Oh thank god, I'm back dahling I thought I'd never see you again!-"
you aren't him, are you?
I quickly jolt back
you wear his face
you have his smile
but you aren't him
none of this
is actually
real...
the piano knows I've noticed its power over me
to drag me back into this figment of the past
this figment of reality
what day is it?
what year is it?
where am I?
what am I!?
Answer me, please!
the piano won't say a thing
the party scene begins to fade
I'm surrounded by blankets of white
I loved these winters we use to share dahling
I want to belive
believe I can stay here forever
however, I must be going now
or else I'll pay the ultimate price for being stuck in dreams that don't exist
which is my life

the sounds of the piano keep bringing me back to the night of the party
oh how I wish I could remember it in more detail
I don't want to dance with this thing in my mind any longer
I ask them nicely to leave
they claim to be who they are not
my lover
I've already said that is not who they were to me
they stormed off
taking the very life from the room with them
all that's left is frozen and colorless silence
is that how I felt?
possibly
I know I wasn't in love with you
only who I thought you were to be
yes it's all coming back to me
why I loved a face
I never loved for so long
I'm not at the party any more I'm dancing with him
he seems nervous
I don't know why
I ask
he's speaking
I can't hear him though
of course, I can hear him I just choose not too
that's why he left me
I was scared to hear
so when he spoke
I never listened
hearing always scared me
as a child, I heard all too much
you love somebody else
somebody who listens
I understand is what I tell myself
that's not what leaves my mouth
the record speeds up
as my blood begins to boil
he heard too much
of what I truly felt
he storms out
the record abruptly ends
oh dahling it seems I am alone
all on my own

I'm on a date with them now
that person I never called by their name
but somebody else's
in my mind all I had to do
to fix everything was convince me it all stayed the same
it never had changed
so I am found here, next to them
at the same movie theater
we used to go to
we had our first kiss here
isn't it grand
how I won't have to face the fact that he's gone
because as long as their here
I'll just love somebody else
who in my head is himself
it's going so well
I'm not lying to myself
now here we stand in your garden
his garden in my eyes
I made it look the same
nothing out of place
to how it once was
you don't have to know that though
if you want it can just be your garden
anything to keep the truth from slipping out
anything that will stop them from hearing to much
they kneeled on one knee
I felt sick
never once did he do this
no this isn't how it was supposed to be
not how this day went
"Marry me?"
it echoed through me like a broken tune
"Marry me?"
"Marry me?"
"Marry me?"
Even so, I'm put under a spell
in this very moment
thankfully I convinced myself it was you
so with a joyful yes
it was such a mess
an absolute wreck
my emotions that day
after they left

because they,
by stepping out of my path of life with him I was trying to relive
slowly cracked my fragmented reality
I was being forced to admit maybe you'd moved on
maybe they were never him all along
behind that face, I thought belonged to him
could've been a totally different person
now I'm brought back
I'm frozen in fear
I watch my past play out in front of me
as I broke down at the dance of my own wedding
I screamed
I hit
I kicked
because no matter how much I wanted to believe
no matter how much I wish to stay like this forever
I finally knew they weren't him
heartbroken they stormed off without me
a storm begins to brew
between you and I
we never got a divorce
we are both too scared
to hear too much
of what either of us really thought of each other
is this what the brink of insanity feels like?
I wonder
how crazy one would have to be
to keep up with such a story for so long
your lover never left
he's never gone
always been here
we eventually no longer lived out me and his story
there was nothing left to live
we'd gone through it all
through the relationship, we had from day one so on
a million times over
until there was nothing left
until we played out the final scene

where we danced in the living room
to that same record
the room almost identical
I asked them so calmly
"Dahling, do you love someone else?"
they did
something happened but this is where it faded into black again
I can't remember what I did
I heard it was something terrible
not according to the scene
I flew off my hinges
reliving that day I lost my lover as well as my mind
was all too much
I don't remember though
I don't know if I ever will
a memory too painful to recall
the piano refuses to open up the events of what had taken place
its ivories whispered to me
along with taking off your mask
of who you tried so desperately to appear to be
a happy normal person
you ripped off his face
that's all the piano would say
I buried their body
along with it not my past
I repeat our lives all over again
every time with someone new
until the police find piles of you under my floorboards
I'll always be happy with you
reliving over and over again
the happy days we used to share with someone entirely new
today I killed the thirteenth you
I have no plans to discontinue
some days I give into the piano as its ivories say
"it's not really him"
those unlucky souls go sooner than later
if they can't play a convincing role
they'll just have to go
that's what I always say
only the best can take your place dahling
I won't settle for less than perfect
if they don't satisfy that's too bad

the other day I met your wife
she's pretty
quiet the good listener as well
the same lady you left me for all those years ago
I grew jealous
I'm truly sorry
I had to make an exception
kill someone who wasn't playing the role of yourself
but the role of your lover
she wasn't very faithful to you
I would know
because I was the one
who met her at a table for two
she told me so much about you
she didn't want you finding out
well at least now her secret has been buried with her
in the cold bottomless soil where she will have my best regards burning in the deepest pits of hell for what she did to us both
I was at least sweet enough to come to her funeral
she didn't even deserve that
however, I pitied her in a way
the poor girl in pain for the rest of well, eternity
having her a farewell was the very least I could do
for shipping her off to fate so early
I stayed in the very back of the crowd
I can't believe so many people could love a homewrecker like her
hundreds of people in attendance for her early departing
what a shame
not even my own mother would attend my funeral
hearing too much was an understatement with her
she hated every part of me that lived
because every time she saw me living
it only reminded her how much she was dying
her unhappiness was always quick to blame on me
my father would've never stressed if I wasn't born
my father would've still loved her if I wasn't born
her life would still be intact if I wasn't born
I loved my mother
I still do
but she doesn't love me
I'll never forget how much tears I was in when I left the house
because I already knew she'd never spoken of or to me again once I left that was it

as I opened the door
I could hear her calling after me
"I'm sorry come back!"
she was scared
of losing the only thing that loved her cold dead heart
she'd keep me there in pain with her sharp words forever if she could
because as much as she hated me
I was the only one that kept coming back in forgiveness
as I leave the funeral
I wondered how she was now
if she ever fixed her shattered state
or if it eventually consumed her
that is why I fear speaking
every time I hear someone speak
I'm afraid of hearing her voice
today Is the last day before our breakup
I'm always more down on this day
knowing what tomorrow in our lives bring
it's more of a heartache time than usual though
having my mother be brought up in memory
always ruins my day
I'd reach out but I don't keep in contact
I really have never heard from her
since that day
fourteen bodies laying under my floorboards
today the smell actually builds up quite the stench
I always have it hidden fairly well
I don't know what has happened
whatever it is must be resolved
I have visitors today
two officers will drop by in a few
knocking up on my door
I overheard
as I was tending the garden
he screamed very loud I will admit
a few minutes
if by that time the smell isn't clean
I'll be paying the price
the price being my life
so I clean
I sprayed
I scrubbed
I just couldn't fix it
couldn't fix it even a bit
the cops are knocking
this is it
then I realize I've been saved
with a smile of relief I open the door

the odor is something so profound
I started to worry about how much they would buy into my story
of me being so nice
nice enough to offer them a cup of coffee
I couldn't let my worry show through
or I'd be on the news
wildly misunderstood I would be
"would you care for a cup of coffee?"
I could tell they were skeptical to a slight
though they didn't want to they chose to be stupidly polite
accepting the offer with over the top fake delight
I made my way to the kitchen where I hoped they weren't to follow
slipping eternal sleep into their drinks
I gave them each a cup
they were very hesitant
just taking a sip
but a sip was enough for them to slip
into their guaranteed passings
a few minutes that's all it took for them to lift the floorboards
revealing what they would see
a pile of yous
who at the end of the script were all killed for choosing me
they were so disturbed they couldn't even move a thing but their heads
shifting from the sight of my eerie smile back to the stacked bodies
until it kicked in just in time
the sleeping potion
taking over
in great effect, they fell onto the pile and died
I knew the cops would eventually be reported missing
so as they come looking for me
I mustn't be around
I took the nearest train of changed plans
to a small town where the real you rested in grief still missing her
you didn't want to talk at first
your wife missing somewhere her body rests
somewhere you'll never know
is a lot for you to handle
me coming out of nowhere
was something you were in no state to deal with
however, I guess it couldn't hurt
to let me into your life one last time
one last time indeed
I've grown saddened with greed
I cannot have my way with you so I had to take you with me
a bullet for you
a bullet for me
together may we rest happily for all of eternity

the police will find me
I realized it was really just a matter of time
so I asked for us to dance to our record
one last song from the pianos crackling tune before we both go
so we danced until the song ended
until we couldn't dance anymore
I guess if it was anyone else hearing this story
they'd really wonder why
I couldn't love somebody else
I couldn't move on
I couldn't let you pass me by
its because you were something so special
I would never share the same
with anyone else but you
I was alone forever until you saw me as someone as lonely as you
we shared such a connection
our pasts branching from the same hurt
in the end, you might've been the stronger one
hearing me out despite the fear of hearing
that's the only place we differed
two people so perfect for each other
how could they be made for anyone else
but themselves
my memory is finally clear
clearer then ever
as hand in hand
every day of my painful life flashed
as we died together

two officers will drop by in a few
knocking up on my door
I overheard
as I was tending the garden
he screamed very loud I will admit
a few minutes
if by that time the smell isn't clean
I'll be paying the price
the price being my life
so I clean
I sprayed
I scrubbed
I just couldn't fix it
couldn't fix it even a bit
the cops are knocking
this is it
then I realize I've been saved
with a smile of relief I open the door

the odor is something so profound
I started to worry about how much they would buy into my story
of me being so nice
nice enough to offer them a cup of coffee
I couldn't let my worry show through
or I'd be on the news
wildly misunderstood I would be
"would you care for a cup of coffee?"
I could tell they were skeptical to a slight
though they didn't want to they chose to be stupidly polite
accepting the offer with over the top fake delight
I made my way to the kitchen where I hoped they weren't to follow
slipping eternal sleep into their drinks
I gave them each a cup
they were very hesitant
just taking a sip
but a sip was enough for them to slip
into their guaranteed passings
a few minutes that's all it took for them to lift the floorboards
revealing what they would see
a pile of yous
who at the end of the script were all killed for choosing me
they were so disturbed they couldn't even move a thing but their heads
shifting from the sight of my eerie smile back to the stacked bodies
until it kicked in just in time
the sleeping potion
taking over
in great effect, they fell onto the pile and died
I knew the cops would eventually be reported missing
so as they come looking for me
I mustn't be around
I took the nearest train of changed plans
to a small town where the real you rested in grief still missing her
you didn't want to talk at first
your wife missing somewhere her body rests
somewhere you'll never know
is a lot for you to handle
me coming out of nowhere
was something you were in no state to deal with
however, I guess it couldn't hurt
to let me into your life one last time
one last time indeed
I've grown saddened with greed
I cannot have my way with you so I had to take you with me
a bullet for you
a bullet for me
together may we rest happily for all of eternity

the police will find me
I realized it was really just a matter of time
so I asked for us to dance to our record
one last song from the pianos crackling tune before we both go
so we danced until the song ended
until we couldn't dance anymore
I guess if it was anyone else hearing this story
they'd really wonder why
I couldn't love somebody else
I couldn't move on
I couldn't let you pass me by
its because you were something so special
I would never share the same
with anyone else but you
I was alone forever until you saw me as someone as lonely as you
we shared such a connection
our pasts branching from the same hurt
in the end, you might've been the stronger one
hearing me out despite the fear of hearing
that's the only place we differed
two people so perfect for each other
how could they be made for anyone else
but themselves
my memory is finally clear
clearer then ever
as hand in hand
every day of my painful life flashed
as we died together

2020.10.20 07:03 LFCCalgary Need some help, please keep spoilers to an absolute minimum and be as vague as possible.

I really didn’t want to ask for help but I’m stuck so near the end and not sure what to do.
I’m down to 4 unknown fates. 2 of them, specifically 3rd Mate Martin Perrott and captain’s Steward Filip Dahl are listed as unknown and I’m unable to input their fate. There are no more blank pages and I’m 99% sure their dead bodies are no where on this ship, (at least no where I can access).
First question: is this intentional that they are the last two and their fates are not available to input?
Second question: will I be able to input their dates before I leave the ship or will that come after I return the book?
The last time it confirmed a correct answer, it confirmed them when I had only TWO correct. Now I have two more that I’m 99% sure are correct but it won’t confirm them.
Third question: why did it do only 2, is that correct?
Thank you in advance for the help, and again please try not to spoil anything other than what I’ve asked about.

2020.10.19 23:25 LadyCardinal An Alternate 100 Best Fantasy Novels of All Time

2020.10.09 11:31 TheChocolateMelted Reading aloud to your children - What are your experiences?

From The Hungry Little Caterpillar and A Series of Unfortunate Events to Oliver Jeffers and Roald Dahl, I've read aloud to/with my kids since they were born. (They're now 12 and 10.) It's one of the most rewarding things I've ever done. There are challenges of course. Words or themes that are sometimes too complicated or dated for them to understand. They like me to give each character a voice of its own. And more recently, I've got to do the parent-y thing and send them to bed even if we've reached a cliffhanger and I'm just as desperate as them to know what comes next ...
Just wondered about everyone else's experiences. Do you enjoy it? Do you find it rewarding? What books do you read? Are there books you loved? Or that you really disliked? Do you have memories of your parents reading to you?

2020.10.02 19:57 cheeseburgertwd MetLife Stadium has been the site of 8% of NFL games and 16% of lower-body NFL injuries this year

Edit - This guy's smarter than me, my initial math was off and it's 14% not 16%, also he makes some other good points that deserve reading. Still that turf sucks big time though amirite
Total games so far this year = 3 weeks * 16 matchups per week + last night's TNF = 49 games, 4 of which hosted by the Jets or Giants. (8.16%)
I found 70 lower-body injuries on Roto (that occurred during the season, not pre-season) and counted 10 that happened during those Jets/Giants games. (14.28%)
That leaves a baseline average of about 3% of remaining injuries for each of the other 29 stadiums in the league.
Here's the list of injuries I used. I had to compile it semi-manually so I'm sure I must have missed some things but it ought to be a reasonable sample size. Bolded lines were MetLife games.

2020.10.01 22:04 Procrastinating-mum Recommendations for Chapter books/ series for 6+

Hi, I have been searching for the best chapter books (preferably written in last 10 years) for my 6 year old daughter. She started off her independent reading with enid blyton's book collections and she is enjoying them so far. But I am searching for something new and fresh for her. While going through numerous review webpages most sites refer books which I grew up reading (enid blyton, mary pope osborne, roald dahl, beverly cleary, charlotte's web etc) As to this day, these books are regarded as timeless classics, but I find them a bit dated with its plot, concepts and ideas. Any newer, funny and entertaining but age appropriate recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

2020.09.28 14:35 Leebeewilly Jonathan Drake's Dire Dragon Dilemma - Fantasy Short Story

This past week I decided to tackle a [PM] - Prompt Me on writingprompts to get the creative juices flowing. I asked for genre mash-ups to play in two sandboxes at once. [Promp Link]
This prompt came from the hilarious Xacktar
Prompt: I got a dragon in my pocket and he's not happy.
How could I not, right? Super adorable idea and I took a lot of inspiration from the old Roald Dahl stories. I might tackle this again and punch it up a bit in style, but this was a lot of fun.
“I got a dragon in my pocket and -”
“EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW,” the class chimed in, though a few added their own renditions of the same sentiment as poor Jonathan Drake stood before the chalkboard.
“Who has dragon’s anymore?”
“Oh my gods, his parents must hate him!”
“Aren’t those things like… diseased?”
“I hear they steal your stuff.”
“Dragons are so 2005.”
“I hear they’re super icky! Like frogs, but waay worse.”
Even his crush, sweet, pretty, really nice Stacey Monmouth sneered and turned up her nose.
It wasn’t Jonathan’s fault that the dragon was in his pocket. As he recalled, it must have found it’s own way in there only that morning, but no one seemed all that interested in hearing about it.
“Settle down, class. Settle down.” Miss Periwinkle stood from her chair, pressed her glasses up the bridge of her nose and approached a most forlorn Jonathan Drake. “Carrying… mystical creatures into class is strictly against our rules. You are to leave you pets at home. And as an excuse for your tardiness, I-”
“He’s not my pet, Miss. He made his way in there all on his own. I swe- ”
“Annnnnd,” she drew out the word and pressed a pointed finger in Jonathan’s direction. “You’d do well to remember we do not interrupt others when speaking, Mr. Drake. You are late for class, and have earned yourself detention.”
“But miss-”
Miss Periwinkle put her finger up, nearly touching his nose, and Jonathan clamped his mouth shut. She bent over her desk, her eyes narrowed and cruel, as she wrote in a most precise cursive on a small stock card. “Take this to the principles office, Mr. Drake. And we’ll have one of your parents come and take your…” She looked down her nose towards his pocket, where the little serpentine creature fussed and turned. “Thing home.” She pressed the paper to him, keeping as much distance from Jonathan as she could. “Go on now, Mr. Drake. You needn’t dawdle further.”
Another round of chuckles cascaded about the room and every single one was at the unfortunate boys expense.
In the hall, he looked to the teacher’s note and the rather intricate way she’d written “TARDY”. The fanciest ‘t’ he had ever seen that also sparked such despair. All the while, the draconic beast huffed from his pocket, a puff of smoke and singed sweater lifting into the air before him.
He considered opening his pocket, to look inside and see the melodious creature ruining his rather spotless attendance record. But our Mr. Drake thought not as a distinct growl warned a nipping awaited in the stitching.
As he trundled along the halls, keen to avoid any pressure on his weighted knit side, he considered how this could have happened. Not when he’d put on his sweater that morning, no, he would have noticed a dragon in his pocket as he ate his eggies on toast. Nor could it have been so infiltrated any time he’d been in the house. His mother would not stand for a dragon to be popping about. They were known to be rather bothersome as pests came, and he’d have heard her shriek a frightful mess if a dragon had been spotted.
It must have been on his way to school.
He’d miss this bus, and although loath to admit it Jonathan was to blame. A comic book, the latest edition of Merlin’s Atomic Adventure’s in Space and Time, issue 143 had stolen his attention that morning. He’d only just summoned the courage to remove it from the plastic sleeve the night before. But, our young comic book enthusiast truly believed he would have made it to school on time despite his rather hurried jog.
No, of course. It was all the dragons fault.
He approached the principles office, dreaded note in hand. He pressed past the perfect pane of glass, careful not to smudge a fingerprint and waited patiently. The receptionist, a willowy specimen of woman, seemed to make a point of not meeting his eyes. Only when he slipped the small card on the obnoxiously high desk did she seem to bestow Jonathan a glance.
“Over there,” she said, waving to the chairs by the corner. In one sat Bartholomew Wulfgar. He stank of sweat, sweets, and grass and stains of all three lined every inch of his clothes. In the other, Tatia Lindworm, a girl one year his senior. Her nose was pressed into a rather aged volume of McGrath’s Quotidian Mysteries and the Science of Shapes. Jonathan hadn’t the foggiest idea what the strange tome could contain, but she seemed rather engrossed.
He took up the seat between them and turned his nose away from Bart in the hopes it might help. But that did mean his rather scaly dragony side came a little close to Tatia.
“What’s that?” she asked, holding the book between them as though it were a great wall barricade dividing a conquering horde.
“Nuthin’”. Jonathan held the pocket close to him and felt the razor sharp claws within his jumper prod his side for release.
To this, Tatia seemed even more intrigued. She closed her hefty tome and reached for his pocket unhindered by common sense. “Lemme see!”
A rather small amount of panic spurned Jonathan to his feet. “I… I’ve got a -”
“Drake. Jonathan Drake.” The receptionist droned and Jonathan narrowly escaped Tatia’s probing. He stepped forward to the open office.
Principle Abis Von Oozecrook leered from behind his desk, a frown dropping beneath wide and bushy mustache. With a gulp, Jonathan took the seat before him.
“You bringing vermin into my school, young man?”
“No, sir.”
The principle’s eyes narrowed further until Jonathan couldn’t be sure if they were even open. “I’m a very busy man, so out with it!”
“It’s not-”
“Was not. A request.”
Jonathan stood and moved to the front of the desk. Carefully, or as careful as one could, he pulled back the top of his deep jumper pocket. Sure enough, inside lay the dragon. No wings on this fellow, he seemed the land crawling sort. But his tail was twice as long as his body, his neck thick but well proportioned, and his scales rather pretty when they caught the scant bit of light that filtered through the stitching. His jaw opened to reveal quite a marvelous set of pearly white fangs.
“Disgusting vile thing,” Principle Oozecrook said. The dragon snapped at the principles finger and the man jumped back into his chair with a clamour.
“Where on earth did you get he idea to bring a thing like that in my school?”
“Sir, I swears. I didn’t-”
“No, I’ll not have it here. Go back out there while I notify your parents about this filthy behaviour. My word…” The principle picked up his phone and dialed with his fattest finger. “A dragon in my school!”
Once again, the receptionist point a spindly finger towards the chair betwix Bart and Tatia. But this time, Tatia was waiting.
“I wanna see it!” she hissed under her breath. “Whatever’s got Boozecrook bothered has got to be amazing!” The delight in her eyes was certainly a shock, and although fearful of another sharp claw jab, Jonathan dared to look again.
“I… I got a dragon in my pocket and… he’s not happy.”
He didn’t think a person’s eyes could pop out of they’re head, but he was sure Tatia was as close as someone had ever come. But instead of a sneer, turning up her nose, or running with a shriek, she leaned down in more to get a better look.
Inside Jonathan’s pocket, the dragon turned, as if trying to nest in the linen bit’s long collected there. Thin tendrils of smoke wafted from his nose, and played at making shapes.
“He’s so cute!” she whispered, checking to see if the receptionist was looking. Thankfully, she was far more interested in a very dated magazine of Famous Fantastical Fashion Fables and Fauxpas.
“Where’d you find him?” Bart asked over Jonathan’s shoulder.
“I don’t know, really. I just found him there when I got to school.”
“I read, that pygmy dragons like to nest in knitwear for both the comfort, the seclusion and the tactical situational awareness the holes provide.” Tatia looked, thankfully without touching, down at the disgruntled fire breathing menace.
“But why’s he got to be in my pocket?” Jonathan exhaled an exasperated sigh. “When my Da finds out, I’m done.”
“You said he wasn’t happy,” Tatia said. “Why do you think that?”
“Well look at him!” Jonathan peeled back a bit more of the pocket top. “He look happy to you?”
A grumbling grown emanated from his jumper with a flicker of fire and the smell of burnt wool. “Oh come on, my Nan knit this!”
Tatia scrunched her brow and pursed her lips, congealing a thought in the wrinkles of her forehead. “You could ask him?”
“What?”
“You. Could. Ask. Him. They speak, you know? Dragon Latin?”
Jonathan’s mouth gaped. “I thought that wasn’t real.”
With a roll of her eyes, and an audible huff Tatia sat back and retrieved her book. “I hear there are translators online. All you’ve got to do is ask him why’s he’s in your sweater! If you solve his problem, I’m sure he’ll leave. Despite what everyone says, dragons are very reasonable. If you can pay ‘em.”
“Pay?” Jonathan Drake pouted. “But I don’t have any money!”
“Then get used to a dragon squatting in your jumper. There are worse things.”
With a sigh, Jonathan leaned back into the chair. “Like what?”
“Pixies in your pantry?” Bart said.
“Wyverns in your waistcoat.” Tatia added.
“Gryffons in the garage,” the receptionist said with a forlorn sigh.
Jonathan opened up his pocket again, ever mindful of the nipping menace within. He did love his jumper, and his spotless attendance record, but the dragon turned about once more, puffed fire onto the lint, and nestled himself. After a moment the growls rumbled into purrs and the pygmy dragon fell asleep.
Though it was hard to tell, Jonathan thought he spied the smallest glimmer of a smile on the miniature beast.
He closed his pocket. “Well, at least he’s happy.”

Team Notes
Dodgers Gonsolin had his best start of the year Wednesday against the rival Padres, allowing one run on a drag bunt over seven innings without a walk. He'll need that type of command at Coors Field, where he earned a four-inning save last year in his Denver debut.
Rockies Remember when Senzatela was fastball-slider only? This year it's a four-pitch mix that on Tuesday helped him to a complete-game 3-1 win over Oakland. He forced 15 groundouts and had a fastball near 97 mph in the ninth.

2020.09.19 16:36 bleauhaus Classifications beyond 75 years Expired and Expiring

Classifications beyond 75 years require special permission.
Thanks to u/rorz_1978 for inspiring this post
Executive Order 13526 establishes the mechanisms for most declassifications, within the laws passed by Congress. The originating agency assigns a declassification date, by default 10 years. After 25 years, declassification review is automatic with nine narrow exceptions that allow information to remain as classified. At 50 years, there are two exceptions, and classifications beyond 75 years require special permission. Because of changes in policy and circumstances, agencies are expected to actively review documents that have been classified for fewer than 25 years. They must also respond to Mandatory Declassification Review and Freedom of Information Act requests. The National Archives and Records Administration houses the National Declassification Center to coordinate reviews and Information Security Oversight Office to promulgate rules and enforce quality measures across all agencies. NARA reviews documents on behalf of defunct agencies and permanently stores declassified documents for public inspection. The Interagency Security Classification Appeals Panel has representatives from several agencies.

Currently past 75 Year Window:
1940s Foo fighters Over World War II theaters Small metallic spheres and colorful balls of light repeatedly spotted and occasionally photographed worldwide by bomber crews during World War II.
1941 Cape Girardeau UFO crash Cape Girardeau, Missouri United States First responders and a Baptist minister allegedly view crashed spacecraft and bodies.
1942-02-24 Battle of Los Angeles, California United States Unidentified aerial objects trigger the firing of thousands of anti-aircraft rounds and raise the wartime alert status.

Still within 75 year window:
1947-06-21 Maury Island incident Puget Sound near Maury Island, Washington United States Harold A. Dahl reported that his dog was killed and his son was injured by debris in an encounter with four to six flying doughnut-shaped objects. He also claimed that a witness was subsequently threatened by the Men in Black. [27]
1947-06-24 Kenneth Arnold UFO sighting North of Mount Rainier, Washington United States The UFO sighting that sparked the name flying saucers. This sighting is considered as the start of the "Modern UFO era". [28][29]
1947-06 Roswell UFO crash about 30 mi north of Roswell, New Mexico United States United States Army Air Forces allegedly captured a crashed flying saucer and its alien occupants. The find was soon revealed to be a crashed balloon but regained attention since 1978 after investigation of S. T. Friedman. [30][31]
1948 The Green Fireballs United States Objects were reported over several United States military bases; an official investigation followed. [32][33]
1948-01-07 Thomas Mantell Kentucky United States US Air Force sent a fighter pilot to investigate a UFO sighting over Fort Knox, Kentucky; his aircraft crashed and the pilot was killed while pursuing the UFO. [34]
1948-03-25 Aztec, New Mexico, UFO incident New Mexico United States An alleged retrieval of a grounded UFO and its occupants from a plateau in New Mexico. [35]
1948-07-24 Chiles-Whitted UFO encounter Alabama United States Chiles and Whitted, American commercial pilots, reported that their airplane had nearly collided with a UFO. [36]
