“A Moment of Weakness”

2022.01.17 01:59 Brother_Amiens “A Moment of Weakness”

Suppose I spent the night in the Saskatoon Best Western And I met a young lady in the elevator And for some reason we started speaking French to one another and she asked how many other languages I spoke and I said one other: Russian. Suppose she was intrigued and my floor came up but she asked another question but the door closed before I could answer. Suppose I ran up the stairs to catch her at the next floor and we played this elevator tag all the way up to the top. Let’s just say that when she mentioned she was getting changed to head to the pool, I was coincidentally heading the same direction myself.
Now imagine this: we’re dangling our feet off the side of the pool and she asks me to guess how many children she’s had. Through the power of deductive reasoning, I determined she’d had two by the time she was 25. I also determined she belonged to a particular tradition scattered across the Canadian prairies, and I supposed correctly that she was raised in a tradition that dominated girls into repression and subservience to men, but she can’t be THAT invested in the movement because her shoulders were showing. Suppose all this happened. Suppose she was originally from Maidstone but now lived elsewhere and was separated from her party by a snowstorm and now found herself waiting for them in Saskatoon in a hotel on her own dime.
Imagine this: I told her I was from a different tradition also greatly dispersed across the Canadian prairies and all over the farming strips of North America. At this point we both laughed because we were often confused for each other in school. It was also at this point I noticed the acne on her forehead that her sideswept bangs had been covering and also that her legs were on my thighs and my hands were on her legs And we were both looking for something as familiar and beautiful as a Boston Brute on a winter’s night far from family and home-cooked meals. Do you suppose that no woman could ever blame you for eating at the Boston Pizza in Saskatoon?
Now suppose it never happened. Like Xanadu, this woman disappeared as the darkness swirled back into my eyes, and I found my beloved and our cats curled up in comfort and beauty. Suppose nothing exciting ever happens anymore. Would I trade this all for a Boston Brute?

2022.01.17 01:59 thrillington SX-70 Model 1 Troubleshooting

I’ve just picked up my first SX-70, in reasonable condition. I can see through the viewfinder and dark slides/ photos will eject. But upon inserting a film cartridge the dark slide ejects and the shutter closes, the shutter button doesn’t do anything.
When the film is removed from the camera, the viewfinder is open again.
I’ve started my research and I can see an S3 adjustment might be a possible solution. Does anyone know if this sounds like a logical cause? I’m not averse to finding my way through this but appreciate any leg up I can get.
I have used a fresh film pack / battery in it to rule this out.

I have long curly hair and when I get a headache or migraine it feels like an anchor pulling down on me and makes the pain so much worse. Do y’all have any solutions or tips that can help alleviate this? It’s so silly to think of hairstyles tailored for my migraines but here I am.

2022.01.17 01:59 throwaway94119 Should I [35f] reach out to an old friend [35m]?

I feel like a twit, but maybe I just need a shove in the right direction.
All the chaos from Covid has made me sentimental, and I've started reaching out to people I haven't seen in years to reconnect. It's gone well, but still surprising and nerve wracking.
Back in the day, middle school was a hellscape with shit going on at home, my grades were nosediving, I was pinballed between psychiatrists to get my learning disabilities mismanaged, and almost every day was a wrecking ball of anxiety.
The one thing I had to look forward to was my last class of the day when I would try to get my classmate to crack up. He had this amazing laugh - you know when someone has a distinct laugh that's as much a part of them as their signature? I wanted that laugh. I knew I wasn't funny, but I worked harder to be funny than anything else in that school. He politely tolerated me at first, but by year's end I could get side splitting laughs out of him and we would chat during class, and then I'd be back to the hellscape at home. Then I flunked out, switched schools, and I never saw him again.
I should just send an e-mail to say hello and that's that, but for the life of me, I don't know why I'm nervous about this other than I knew him for such a blip on the timeline, and I've spent too much of my life around family telling me socializing is stupid, or reminding me how horrible I was in middle school. (Spoilers: I grew up in an abusive household and I constantly lashed out to get some safety.)
What I've reasoned with myself is that everybody likes a compliment and that's all it has to be. I figure if a weird old classmate told me they liked my laugh because it made their day better, that'd be nice to hear. I reached out to a different distant classmate about an entirely different subject, and I was shocked to find she had good memories of me. (Volatile homes will have you convinced nobody likes you and you're best left alone.)
Worst case scenario, I'm screencapped, sent to the alumni group chat, mocked, doxxed, set on fire, and fed to starving dogs, yeah? Should I suck it up and say hello, or mind my business?

2022.01.17 01:59 PineappleCakeman Shoul i self study for these 2 AP Exams?

There are two Im thinking about: AP US History is notoriously hard at my school. As in, half of people's classes drop it after the forst few weeks. Im interested in History, but a) I hate unneededly hard things. B)Im planning to take 4 other hard ap classes next year, i dont want to spend time on something i could learn more efficiently myself. At the same time though, I need 4 social studies credits to graduate, and im not a fan of the idea of taking regular us history.
Im really interested in Environmental science, but I dont have enough class space to take the class. Will this support my interest in the subject if colleges see that i self studied? However, Id have to take it junior year if i want colleges to see it, and as I said above, im packed junior year. Will it be worth it? Or should i just wait until college. Also, how hard is AP Environmental Science?
