Sorry, I don't change what works.

TPBM hopes that just before they die, they'll have enough time to point at a total stranger and shout "You did this to me!!!". :twisted:

Actually I hate the Olympics and all TV recently, although Mr. Robot is pretty good.

TPBM is watching the live stream & listening to BMIR.

no, no. just a few blisters with perfect provenance. I am considering what it would take to strike purple heart medals for some friends. Made me look at what solo bad ass might do in a similar situation, and figuring on some new contingency planning.

tpbm knows what a basic first aid kit for a camping trip is.

You know me too well. Just remember that there is a fine line between being a smart ass & a dumb ass. I often cross it.

Yes I did earlier this summer around my recycle can. I still see them flitting about. As a wild curly haired woman, they slightly terrify me.

Even though I had to rescue a neighbors cat that my dogs cornered at 2:55 AM, I am actually feeling pretty well rested.

Sad old cat was still in the same spot this AM, but I saw him out before the dogs could re-pounce.

No. But I was tickled to see my phrase "Lone Ticketing Genius" in a thread title. That now I think about, maybe have been an old title retitled. The gods, and Trilobyte, work in mysterious ways.

No, but I once thanked The God That Gave Me Change for a $50 When I Gave The Casino a $20. To this day it's one of my most successful casino adventures.

No. Although a cache of pillow cases has been discovered.

tpbm likes to rearrange books, cds, and dvs in thrift stores by whatever similarities and themes seem appropriate.

I worked in retail for almost 30 years, in bookstores for about 15 of those - I would probably have a heart-attack if I tried.

I worked as a volunteer at St Vincent De Paul thrift store for 10 years. 20 hours a week. It was great fun. I was 'let go' when they discovered the religion had been moved to the fiction room. Call it like you see it.

Nothing special. Went to the Carson Valley Inn for "a traditional" dinner. Turkey, stuffing, smashed taters, sweet taters, (more like yams) string beans and a slice of pumpkin pie. I took over half of it home to have a "traditional turkey sandwich" for lunch tomorrow.



TPBM plans to have their chimney cleaned soon, assuming tpbm has a fireplace, wood or pellet stove.

I regard fireplaces as places that produce airborn toxins that fall on you during earthquakes. (The fireplaces--or at least the chimneys fall, the toxins just get inhaled.) It's less that I want to clean it out to make it, than I feel I should clean it out and brick it up before birds nest in it again next spring/summer. Arrrrgh! Houses create work.

I guess. I just read the Sunday paper online, for the first time in ages, and wrote down 5 word I need to look up, one area of Austria to research a bit (Gastein Valley, Krampus Central, apparently) and two authors to check out. WOW!

I could tell my attention was lagging when I couldn't get through the comics, having to position the screen and zooming in and out. I will need to keep at it and get back to my Sunday reading fitness.
