Fluctuations

I had a bunch of Canadian dollars I needed to exchange so I went to the currency exchange window at the local bank.

Short line… just one guy in front of me… an Asian guy who was trying to exchange yen for dollars and he was a little agitated…

He asked the teller, “Why it change, yesterday I get two hunat dolla fo yen – today I get hunat eighty? Why it change?”

The teller says, “Fluctuations.”

The Asian guy says, “Fluc you white guys, too!”

Jean-Robert at Pigall’s has earned that rating from the Mobil Travel Guide.

“I’m very proud about it, proud for my staff. I am extremely happy,” says owner Jean-Robert de Cavel. “Getting four stars was one of our goals.”

Pigall’s is the only four-star restaurant in Ohio, Kentucky or Indiana. The Cincinnatian Hotel, downtown, received four stars for lodging. There are no five-star winners in the three states.

What D&D Character Am I?

I Am A: Neutral Good Human Ranger Paladin

Alignment:
Neutral Good characters believe in the power of good above all else. They will work to make the world a better place, and will do whatever is necessary to bring that about, whether it goes for or against whatever is considered ‘normal’.

Race:
Humans are the ‘average’ race. They have the shortest life spans, and because of this, they tend to avoid the racial prejudices that other races are known for. They are also very curious and tend to live ‘for the moment’.

Primary Class:
Rangers are the defenders of nature and the elements. They are in tune with the Earth, and work to keep it safe and healthy.

Secondary Class:
Paladins are the Holy Warriors. They have been chosen by a God/dess to be their representative on Earth, and must follow the code of that deity, or risk severe penalties. They tend towards being righteous, but not generally to excess.

Deity:
Mielikki is the Neutral Good goddess of the forest and autumn. She is also known as the Lady of the Forest, and is the Patron of Rangers. Her followers are devoted to nature, and believe in the positive and outreaching elements of it. They use light armor, and a variety of weapons suitable for hunting, which they are quite skilled at. Mielikki’s symbol is a unicorn head.
