    I wish you all a pleasant day off then. To show my solidarity once again, I have Thursday and Friday off..

    Should we tell the sparkly canine that a lot of us won’t be working today? Or should we let him bask in his “almost done”?

    No. Admit to briefly considering it, and decided there was no way I'd survive the first couple of weeks. Have an uncle who was a Tin Can sailor (he did boilers? Cannot recall the name of his ship, though), and my Dad was army, but that had nothing to do with my decision. ^^;

    Nope, haven't served, never tried. There's something about how my dad wanted a civilian career for me (a good portion of the extended family went military, typically about 80/15/5 Air Force / Army / Navy between all three (two are in the coast guard)), and there's also the fact the recruiters that didn't know my dad took one look at me and went "yeah, not going to be the guy who recruits him, I'm not having that come back to me...." Besides, even in the mid to late '90's some of the things I deal with day to day would disqualify me for service (especially my issue with my knees!), and some of the physical injuries I've sustained over the years could be a serious liability to any squad I served with. Sure, I was looking at Air Force, but most of the trades I was contemplating I would never have qualified for. ....That and I didn't want to wind up in Bagotville *shudders* or worse, Wainwright! (or other, insert small town in middle of nowhere air force base here)

    Good Morning friends on the other side of the pond! While you're all waking up and struggling to reach that cup of coffee with your eyes still half closed, I'm almost done with my work day. A mere hour and a half from now I'll be heading home, pick up some groceries on the way and then walk Brutus and make dinner. I will show some solidarity though, I'm grabbing an espresso now. Cheers!

    Dice!

    I don't have anything fancy with my set, although I have a semi-reasonable sized box of dice, sorted by size and type of die ^_^;;;;; Edit: can't remember if I sorted my pound of dice from Chessex into it or not..

    Coffee is a lovely way to start the day. ...Doubly so when you rolled over after turning off the alarm and a full hour magically disappears...

    COFFEE!! Need to study today. Don't wanna...
  16. I have not. I oft times regret not having done so and words can never truly express how grateful I am to all those who have served and are serving. I am also particularly grateful that although I have a lot of friends and family who have served, they've all made it home safely.

    I have tried several times in my adult life to learn to like liver, in case it would ever be served somewhere we are a guest. I can deal with the flavor, just cannot handle that texture. Never tried it, but does pate have the same texture?

    May 27, 2019 Question: Today is Memorial Day in the United States, where we remember those who have died in the service of our country. Today's question, have you served or are you a veteran of your Nation's military? [Thank you by the way]

    That's how my subs from Subway end up, too.

    Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    This is similar to the urban legend that when Kennedy made his famous "Ich bin ein Berliner" speech his audience laughed because a Berliner is also a German type of doughnut.
