  1. I was correct I assuming that a lot of my feeling of general malaise was caused by allergies. I ran out of the Flonase, and couldn't get it for a few weeks. Feeling dead tired, short of breath, itchy, so forth. Well I got some yesterday (Costco sells 5 for $23! That's like $4.50 per bottle that normally runs $18 in name brand!) and started feeling better within a couple hours of taking it. My shortness of breath is gone now too. I love the Flonase :wub:

    Sure the super tornado thing is impressive but her real superpower is having hair that long that isn’t irredeemably tangled given that she flies by being carried on the winds. I walk outside on a windy day and am usually immediately smacked in the face by my hair. 

    That is the true super power. A lifetime of princess movies and their physics defying hair makes the reality of long hair slightly disappointing. 


    Getting it it stuck in car doors and sitting on it keeps it funny though. :lol:

    With the addition of multiple applications of product and time......


    Mine badly needs trimmed. And probably something done to it. I really need to wander my scaredy-cat self over to a salon and have it trimmed and get some useful advice about styling it, provided I wish to do so.

    I never learned any of this shist! :/

    I never style my hair. In fact, I've never had a professional haircut, much less been inside a salon. I just trim mine every now and then and usually keep it braided. Sometimes I do fun things with it, like giving myself bear-ear-buns. That was pretty cute. ^_^

    What the BBC and the rest fails to realise is that Top Gear wasn't really a car show...   

    (Boo, hiss, all inds of nasty sounds directed at me)

    It may have been about cars once, but eventually it ended up as 'Men being childish with expensive toys'. The fact that the toys happened to be cars is just a happy coincidence. 

    I describe it to people as "three middle aged blokes elfing around with cars". It's not actually about the cars, though sometimes they do a decent job pretending it is. If it was Jeremy's house wouldn't have gotten knocked over :lol:



    Tonight for dnd we did a training battle, to get us back into the swing of our characters, and the new kid used to his new character. Lessons were learned; like when new kid rushed the group of training dummies, got surrounded, and had to run away and heal himself. (They were literally animated training dummies, even had personalities.)


    It was also hilarious. I had to leave at one point because I was laughing so hard. The new kid (who plays a rakosta wielding a sword and whip) couldn't hit with his whip for nothing. He tried three times to use his whip to trip one dummy. Finally the dummy came over, took the whip from him, told him "this is how you do it", got the whip around his ankles, and yanked his feet out from under him. Dice rolls supported it all. Then the dummy went and sat down with the other dummy who was "done" (that one critically failed and threw his sword, which got caught in the whirlwind and flung out somewhere). 


    I was was laughing so hard I was crying :lol:

    An abomination. If ever tea deserved to be dumped in a harbour

    You got pretty mad about it the last time it happened. :mellow:

    To be fair, that's not actual tea. It's just an herbal infusion. 


    Now, if you want a good tea with herbs, try Republic of Tea's ginger peach tea. I am legitimately addicted to that stuff. If only it weren't so difficult to find in my area.

    Thanks for covering!


    Question for the weekend of October 20-22:

    Weekend Hobby Challenge: You have a paint in your collection that you've never used (putting a drop on the cap doesn't count). What color is it? Why have you never used it? How long have you had it? What are you going to use it for? What are you waiting for?

    Well, I haven't used any of the 5 bottles of BCAP. Or a bunch of the holiday colours I got last year. And some others, but I can't check because my stuff is in boxes ::(:
