Close! Really want to move back to California. Funny thing is, its not the Iowa weather, but the temperature at work. Sometimes -20.

TPBM bought throwing stars at the local mall, dirt cheap.

Move to the land of junglesmacks and everglade draining? Why ever not?
More like throwing-up stars.

No, back in my youth when I skied, it was actually too cold around here to do so without requiring hospitalization afterwards, and I figured I wouldn't be able to convince my parents to give me money, permission, or convince them to go to (without so much complaining from my Dad that it would ruin the fun) someplace where I could do so. In adulthood I was never financially stable enough to try it, and am not now either financially or physically healthy enough to try it.


TPBM lives somewhere where skiing naked is an option at least part of the year.

No. I grew up in a household that was aclownal, tipping perhaps into anti-clown.

Sure! if Dad said "God said Floors are of the Devil!" Well then, We didn't believe in floors. I want the light of God, I want the sweet love of Jesus! I danced for the Devil; I saw him, I wrote in his book; I go back to Jesus; I kiss His hand. I saw Sarah Good with the Devil! I saw Goody Osburn with the Devil! I saw Bridget Bishop with the Devil!

PBM, what did you like better; The Scarlet Letter or The Crucible?

I was supposed to have read the first one in junior high, and only made it partway through before giving up and skimming the rest (which was apparently better than most of the rest of the class), and have never even attempted to read the Crucible. Thus, I really can't answer the question.

The main saving grace of that class was that we were assigned to read To Kill a Mockingbird, which remains one of the best books I have ever read. (I do not recall if that was the same class where we were assigned to read Hound of the Baskervilles, and I figured out who had committed the murder shortly after Holmes arrived at the estate-- and promptly lost too much interest in the book to finish it.)


TPBM prefers the Classic Comics versions of classic novels to the original books.

The person below me had an awesome dinner (please supply menu).

Uh, I went to Culver's and spent some money I don't really have. Anyway, I had a four piece chicken dinner (dark meat), with french fries and coleslaw (plus the generic roll which comes with the meal), Diet Mountain Dew (tm), and a large hot fudge and caramel shake. Unless you want to count the liverwurst on whole wheat toast I had as a snack (which is probably why I couldn't fall asleep and wound up back on-line.)


TPBM has at least considered crowd-sourcing to fund a theme camp. (And can probably guess what I have been thinking about doing to get back to TTITD.)

crowd-sourcing is so crass. It and digital panhandling are the biggest threats to my sanity.
But I am glad you are Planning To Return To TTITD. Perhaps we'll meet. :lol:

PBM; which holiday is more like independence day? Christmas or Thanksgiving?

What, if anything, I bring will depend upon my financial situation. Normally, at my brother's New Year's Eve party, there is enough food and drink it won't make a difference, thankfully. (Plus, he makes a HUGE amount of chili!)


TPBM is going out of state for the holidays.

umm yeah although I am neither Christian or an adherent of MassCulture I do occasionally give gifts, usually to some one like myself that is not really part of the whole Christmas scene.

PBM what was the most resent thing you've lost?

" resent thing"? I'm guessing you meant "recent thing", in which case I probably haven't figured out it is missing yet...

At some point I have lost my good tarot deck-- the Vision Tarot. I have not yet given up on finding it, though. (I just hope to Whoever that I didn't leave it in a restaurant or something!)

TPBM-- it is all your fault, isn't it? Whatever "it" is!
