Does 2 weeks ago count as "recently"? It was more than one old friend...

Neurotic yes. It cannot or will not drink out of a small bowl or saucer - No... it needs a huge bowl of water at least a foot in diameter.

TPBM already has the time off scheduled for BM this year.
The next morning you will wake up pretty much your old self except that a very unusual 16 hours will have been added to your store of life experience.

Love them, but don't have any now. My snake passed away a long time ago, and The Boyfriend was never comfortable around her (and she was a cornsnake! Not even something "scary"!)

Living in Pennsylvania for 11 years (1989-2000) I really miss seeing lightning bugs/firefly's. Praying Mantis are cool.
This morning walking the dog by the Carson River I saw the first stink bug this year.

I do. I belong to a non denominational spiritual group. We are having an Easter celebration with food, an Easter bonnet contest (craziest wins) and an Easter egg decorating contest. People are welcome to share inspirational stories or even prayers, but no bibles are needed.

TPBM has a favorite Easter candy

Nope - I lived through the "Ugly Years" on ePlaya, and left for almost 2 years because of them. Good snark is a scalpel, not a bludgeon.

Yep, I need to dig in to the "extra canned stuff I didn't eat" tote, and the cookware tote. (oh yeah, there's also the solar light box, and the bike box, just for burning man) I have a camping trip coming up, (oh luxurious, regular woodland dirt, that doesn't coat EVERYTHING) and need to get the edited kit together. Adding guest gear, but it will all be total at less stuff. Minus multi-water containers, minus extra coolers, and cooler blankets, minus rebar, minus alla the decor stuff. The camp gnome comes camping though, always.

tpbm just felt their pulse increase when they thought of packing for burning man for a brief moment.
