  I'm starting to put my foot down at work.

Last week, I was approached by my boss who said "we have you on salary, and I notice the last few months as soon as the closing bell rings, you are out the door. You have in the past stayed for sometimes 12-13 hours in one day. I'd not want to ask directly, but you get what I am leading to...."

I looked at him with a smile and said "4 months ago, we had something called communication going on. I knew immediately what was going on and so I could anticipate when to keep my after hours schedule open. That has since stopped. If you approach me at the end of the day, chances are I have appointments set around the expectation that I will not be needed beyond a certain point."

Boss says "ok, you are very right about that" Me: great, I will clear my schedule for next week incase you need me just let me know ahead of time."

At that point, there was a huge research project that I was assigned. I was to start monday (today) but as I have been told, I have to be released from other duties prior to going down to my R&D department.

This morning I said "so, its 9am... I need to get this project moving it is going to be about a weeks worth of work."

"hold off on that for now" the boss says "I need you to fill in on the phones so my department can get caught up"

This is just speculation at this point, but here is what is going to happen at 3:30pm today

"hey Danny, are you sticking around?" my boss will ask...

to which I will bluntly reply "my day doesn't begin after an 8 and a half hour shift."

alot of you have seen how I go off on companies who jerk me around over the phone, I am no different with my work life.

end random midday rant.

  Want it from behind while you play Super Mario Brothers ? - m4w
Date: 2008-07-02, 2:35PM EDT

Do you love to play Super Mario Brothers on the Classic Nintendo System? Do you like to get tagged from behind while you do it? This is the post for you then.

You must know your way around the game before we meet, must be open to anal sex, also able to fake an orgasm is a plus.

I will send you the address to a hotel and a room number. When you arrive the door will be open. Please come in close and lock the door and close the shades if they are still open. I will be in the bathroom and the door will be closed. Turn on the TV and the Nintendo. Remove all of your clothing. Turn off all lights in the room and kneel down on the bed so you are directly in the light of the TV. You need to be facing the TV with your butt in the air pointed toward the pillows on the bed.

Press the start button on the controller when you are ready. I will hear the sound and turn the light off in the bathroom and come out. You will not look directly at me, only look at the TV. When the first level starts I will begin to finger you and lick you. I will be using lots of lube as well.

When you reach the end of level one, make sure to trigger the fireworks. This is vital to the entire experience. I must hear the fireworks. When level 2 begins and Mario walks into the pipe, I will penetrate you. You may say things like, "MORE", "HARDER", "YES", "fark ME", but nothing else. I will continue having sex until the level ends. DO NOT take the secret level skip. If you die I will pull out and spank you until the level restarts.

When you reach the flag you must again trigger the fireworks, and also orgasm. I will pull out. When the 1-3 starts I will penetrate your ass. You are allowed to say something like "OH GOD", "YES", OR "IT HURTS" no other conversation is allowed.

When level 1-4 starts I will alternate between holes as I see fit. You may beg me to cum inside or outside of you, depending on what you want. When boss falls and you reach the princess I will pull out and blow my load where you have convinced me I want too. You may then say something like "Thanks", "It was great", "I loved it", "Don't stop"

If I am impressed you may continue playing and I will continue to pleasure you. If I am not, I will turn the Nintendo Off and return to the bathroom. At this time you may clean your self with the towel that is beside the bed. Turn the lights on, redress yourself and leave.

I may come back out and talk to you as you dress but the conversation will most likely be short and revolve around scheduling another time to get together.

Antheria is moving into high gear!   
02:38pm 18/02/2010
  Antheria is coming together wonderfully

everyone out there asking "what is Antheria?" and I know details have been hard to come by. In the next few days and weeks and months we will be releasing more information on the site so everyone can get in on the fun.

How can you help? Why its simple!

Preregister for the convention and book your rooms with the Westin LAX (the bunny commands you!). This hotel is absolutely amazing. The staff is friendly and is really looking forward to the coming events. Most of all they are looking forward to meeting YOU!

Cant make it? You can still help make this a wonderful convention by spreading the word. Post to FA, Twitter and any forums you hang out on. Talk about the convention, send a request to the staff requesting promotional material you can pass out at the fur meets. Send ideas of how this can be the best convention. If you are teetering on the edge of going, send an email and let the staff know, maybe they can help!

This convention is all about YOU, the fans who wish to come and have the best time of your life. Its a chance to see the wonderful talents the fans have to offer. Music, art and entertainment and MORE!

Stay Tuned for more info or check out twitter, FA, or Livejournal (and more sites yet to be announced ;) just search for Antheria LAX on your favorite forum, if theres nothing there then its time to post!

Leaving Livejournal   
12:02pm 18/02/2010
  Leadies and gentle furs.

The crowd has moved on to twitter and furaffinity.

I have decided that these are long standing enough to move my base of operations to so I invite everyone to join me. =)

Livejournal is great, its served me well these past what... 8 years (both as alpinefox and rainhopper roo) but i need to get with the times =)

Drop me a watch on FA I am Rainhopper there. I am also rainhopper on Twitter. I try to tweet something every day and its usually about as innane as the stuff i post here.

I may keep my LJ alive for those stragglers but its likely to be an update here and there rather than every day.

take care all and see you over there!

Big mac, fries and a credit report please, to go.   
01:19pm 30/01/2010
  You go through life learning that some things are private. Your financial issues is usually at the top of the list.

I dont discuss my credit score with anyone, I dont tell my neighbor about my last home loan application.. these things are very personal and private.

In america today, this is not the case. When you go to apply for any job, they run your credit report and get a full list of all of your financial obligations, anything you default on, anything you are behind in. Some may be comfortable with this but for me, this is a complete invasion of privacy. The person looking over those reports was one interview away from flipping burgers at mc donalds. Would you order a big mac then follow up with "my fico score is 712, I owe 4k on my credit cards and I have a boat loan that i defaulted on in 1987" NO! why is someone looking at my credit information. Making judgments based on what financial obligations i have.

The original purpose of a credit report was to give a prospective loan company a tangible rating on weather you were trustworthy enough based on your past history. They were given a number and from that number your loan was written based on risks involved with the numeric rating you were given. They arent supposed to look over every loan you have had just to make that decision. There are systems in place that people pay a great deal for in order to calculate that out based on a well planned out scoring system. Something like this took several minds many years to develop properly (and its still evolving!) What makes some 30 year old manager of a call center think they can make a better judgement... further more WHY are they even looking at that information?

If I am taking calls over the phone to tell some dipshit that he installed his memory incorrectly, how does my financial history factor into that? how my ability to do my job factors into my credit score is beyond me. Responsibility and situational hardship are not concidered by these people and I dont understand why they look at this information and it makes me quite uncomfortable.

Congress is trying to ban animal human hybrids!   
05:45pm 03/01/2010

and I quote:

(2) human-animal hybrids are grossly unethical because they blur the line between human and animal, male and female, parent and child, and one individual and another individual;

wont someone please think of the offspring?!

There are too many jokes to go along with this

the brilliant scientist working hard on farms down south have been trying for years to prove interspecies breeding can work, no conclusive evidence but rest assured they will be very exhaustive in thier study.

There are a number of doors something like this can open up. All I see in this bill is some kind of religious "dont undo gods work' crap masquerading as an ethics bill.

Thanks to the colofurs mailing list for giving me a good laugh by posting this!

Cuz I'm a bunny now.

I've done some deep soul searching and I have decided that after some time spent not acting as a furry, and some time thinking about it I'm going to go with the bunny character "Toast" A well spoken well dressed rabbit, tan and black in color typical light toon style (not warner brothers, but maybe more disney antro, think brer rabbit maybe?)

Also, I hear some buzz on this is worth keeping an eye on


The link was passed on to me by a friend of mine. It looks intriguing. I wonder whats up?

has anyone heard anything about it?

The loss of a good friend   
07:03pm 04/12/2009
mood: destroyed
Tia Cheney, a close personal friend of mine passed away. This happened sometime in the beginning of november but i just got notice today.

I am heartbroken. She was suffering from severe damage caused by Diabetes. Her body was shutting down and he pancreas and kidneys were non functional. This hurts deeply.

A long time ago I had lived in Wisconsin, a little town called West Bend. I was at the time with a wonderful girl named Angie (Nala). It was a rough time in my life and I was very far from my home town. It was the first time I had moved truly away from home and one day I ended up meeting this energetic goth chick named Tia. She was also from detroit and really helped give me an anchor when I was feeling home sick.

We lost touch for a number of years, i went my way after a regretful breakup with Nala and she went her way with her own path. She spent alot of time living a life that was very hard and often had to choose between testing strips for her machine, or food. Unfortunately she always chose food. She wasnt able to afford the things she needed to keep her self in check and was just taking shots of insulin every day. Over time this ravaged her body.

She moved back home with her parents and ended up under heavy medical supervision. I just happened to find her on Myspace. We talked alot. I had offered to be a living donor when she was able to locate a pancreas (I was to donate my kidney to her)

We talked on the phone not days before she died and she seemed ok. I dont have many details but it sounds like it was rather sudden.


Careing friend, open ear and bulldog for those who couldnt stand up for themselves. You touched my life in ways I cannot express.

  Thats right, your favorite rocker kangaroo is breaking into the music industry.

In a few short days i start my job working for a record label as a booking agent. Its looking like its going to be a big break for a kangaroo and for some of the furs whom know can make it (yes once learn the industry will book furs for venues)

Im also a hollywood booking agent. Still an internship but I'll give you 3 guesses as to who is going to benefit from that gig.

Question for all you livejournal furs   
01:30pm 01/12/2009
  I've noticed a steep decline in replies on everybodys journal. I myself could ht 20 or so on any given post. 2 could hit triple digits every time. I barely get a hello anymore and everyone replies in person to me rather than in my journal which is great but it leads me to wonder....

Where is everyfur hanging out these days? what journal or networking site did everyone migrate to?

please dont say facebook o.o

the amazing effects of a diet   
01:52am 29/11/2009
  for the last 9 months... especially those 9 months i have felt vacant. Its like walking throug a fog, where you know words are coming out of your mouth, and you know you understand everything around you, but at the same time you are unable to reach out and hold anything in your paws.

That deep thought eludes you, the ability to elaborate on a feeling jumps away. A fleeting thought becomes a distant memory and your vocabulary falls below a 5th grade level.

I've felt this and more. with a sudden change in diet, i'm getting a rush back of thoughts, emotions, feelings... The comprehension of what I am, wo i am and what i do is starting to become clearer. I have opinions emotional responses, analytical capablities.

All of this as come back in a short but painful jab from just a very minute change in my diet. I wonder what the coming days will bring. the headaches arent fun
