  1. Getting to Know You, Feb 2018

    I am closest to being an expert in textiles and textile history. Mostly cause I love touching fabric and I wonder how people came up with all this crazy stuff. But I'm not an actual expert. I'm the family member people call when they aren't sure how to wash a garment. You sound perfect!

    Yeah, I do the same thing. Most of the time it's a little trophy, occasionally it's an actual thank you. Hubby and I are gonna have to go shopping today, but hopefully after that we won't need to go out anytime this weekend. Aside from Sunday, when we go see the Dark Crystal in theater

    Me too I've got two vaults, one is full, the other is small still. Fallout shelter and Love Nikki are the two games I play to kill time at work.

    So, one of the fun details from Fallout Shelter is the corny pick-up lines the dwellers use in each other. I think I've just gotten the best one: "Is that jumpsuit felt? Would you like it to be?"

    @WhiteWulfe is correct about patience when driving in ice/snow. Be careful and slow going around corners. Don't stomp on the accelerator. That's sort of thing. I don't have a lot of practice driving in snow either (more than you, because I gotta get myself to work). Just treat it like bad rain conditions and drive defensively. If others don't like how slow you are, they can go around you. Better slow and safe than fast and dead. I mean, unless you owe debts to certain unsavory folks.

    I have to disagree with you. Our own cultures always seem fairly plain compared with others, we often don't see the beauty hiding in front of us. Middle America has produced some fantastic artists and art, as well as having interesting customs all their own.

    If it makes you feel any better, it's been longer since I've painted. :sigh: I did get some of my painting area cleaned up last weekend though. I think I need this guy. He's really cool. Make sure you do those exercises. I always feel better when I do my stretches on a regular basis. When I don't, well, I feel like crap. You should keep all the titles you like so you can change them later. Also, Pixie Mouse, because you said you have a pixie cut That's a really amazing present! Good job on being awesome! All the athletes are really impressive this year. I've really enjoyed watching the games.

    Umm... all of them? Can that be an answer? Ok, ok. I guess China. They've got a long history, filled with a lot of crazy, sad, and hilarious stuff. Bonus: the historical costumes and the FOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!

    All of this is obviously a lie. You don't have hair! You don't even have skin!
  12. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Made it to work safely! Had to scrape a bunch of ice off the car, and drove really slow, but I made it. The best part was stopping at a store that had a parking lot like glass. Walk like a penguin for the win!!

    :bites the bullet and turns up the heat: there's only so much the fur will do to keep the kittehs warm. It started snowing this morning, and is supposed to snow all day. I won't lie, the idea of driving through snow in the Toyota scares me. Maybe Hubby will let me drive the soul...
  14. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    That's really cool! Great job!
  15. Getting to Know You, Feb 2018

    It's okay, stuff happens. I would've liked to have not seen computers yesterday too My hair is "red". More specifically, it's coppery orange. I usually wear it in a braid, because I sit on it less then Oh, styling products? Does a brush count? In the winter I use leave in conditioner on the ends, that's as close as I come to typical styling. Low maintenance is my comfort zone.

    If I had teh munnies I would have @TaleSpinner make the full set. I have at least five more tiny dolls that need minis made for them. Alas! I am poor!

    @Marvin happy birthday. I hope it's a pleasant day. Haha, I checked on this and everything is exactly the same as it was last night. And! Our internet has been having issues all day, so at least one of the devices was probably messed up. But do these idiots care? Nope! That closet would probably give those of you who work with that stuff flashbacks or nightmares.
  18. Roots of the Hobby

    I'd order from EU businesses all the time if they put EU Haribo gummy bears in the shipment. They taste soooo much better than the American version...
  19. Roots of the Hobby

    That's how Reaper started too. As a hobby.
  20. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Thanks. Being polite in the face of unmitigated idiocy is a skill I gained over the course of too many years in customer service. I only have one one more year here, then Hubby and I are leaving the state.
  21. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    The internet was out because the power strip that our modem was attached to had a surge. Probably because of the ancient, groaning AC also plugged into it. Of course, the power strip might also be older than me. This place is ridiculous.
  22. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Monday is being very Monday. A half an hour into my shift, the internet went down. Like, ALL of it. Lan, wifi, guest wifi. And here's the thing: all the programs I need to use are internet based. My boss brought me a hotspot, so I can do a few basic things (like check people in), but I can't even make keys. Because the computer that runs the key programmers I internet based. At least this isn't my fault.
  23. Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    Do the turkeys born this way produce asexually with greater success? They may be working out the glitches... Aren't things with no apparent use ascribed as mating accessories? Or w/e. I'm sure they have some official word for it.
