This is true!

tpbm has a beautiful veggie garden!

Only if it came with the net. I wanted the playroom from Bringing Up Baby no it wasn't bringing up baby... It was one where Hepburn met Grant on a cruise? and they got engaged? (edit to fix: Holiday) I wondered what kind of rich it was to have a trapeze in a kid's room, in a New York townhouse.

tpbm wonders if they can get back their balance, and trivia memory.

Um, probably, as much as my fuzzy mind can. That was my first regional, so I'm guessing yes, I was having a good time.

TPBM keeps detailed journals of their life in lieu of a good memory.

No journals, and my memory is poor for anything that happened in the last 30 years. It's all a big blur.

TPBM has to shop for a big weekend!

If by "shop for a busy weekend" you mean "go to an antiques fair(*cough*e) for your birthday" then yes, I do.

I already did that the first time I saw you on these boards, Mr. C. I figured you must have a namesake. Turns out, you have one with a most interesting life indeed!

TPBM thinks people who post their goodnights and then keep on posting are a little creepy.

No. But then I've done too much of deciding that I must go to bed at the end of the chapter and then reading ahead in the book towards the end because I can't read another chapter.
TPBM used to do that with textbooks.

It was a linear slog most of the time. I saw an interesting documentary on Paris in the 20's.... oh you H.G., wow, what kind of naughty was that?

Not being a prude, I do believe there is a time and place for everything, unless you're a voyeur, or an exhibitionist.

tpbm is thinking about a PB&J sammie with a cold glass of milk.

Seems like a long ways to go to get some ice. I am sure however, that with the right advertising, there is a market for it in the default. It will, as you know, enhance the coldness for your favorite cola. :roll:

TPBM thinks that truth in advertising would put some big name products/services out of business. Image

*pouring a nice refreshing glass of "After a whole lot, the mice die" cola beverage.* We can't handle the truth.

Half a tree fell on top of my house just hours after power was finally restored. Yeah, I'm sure it wont.
On the upside I still have power.
