    I can't think of anything involving pumpkin other than pie or maybe a soup, so I guess I like them? Why don't we have a shrug emoticon?

    I've experienced both. I have a friend that works for AMD and he has a pretty sweet VR setup in a spare room. He has a couple of games and wilderness simulations that are a lot of fun and really impressive. I was most amazed that VR was seamless and responsive enough to not make me nauseous, as badly simulated motion and shaky-cam garbage can make me throw up (I don't have any problems with real motion). Standing on the edge of a cliff overlooking a valley gives you a comparable feeling to doing it in reality. Horror games are way more exciting for the player, and the audience, as well.

    My hair is very wavy, so it depends on if it's wet or dry. Right now it's about shoulder length, but it'll reach about the middle of my back when I comb it out after a shower. I should probably get two or three inches trimmed off in the next month.

    A fat lot of nothing. Here's a pic:

    Not that I am aware of. Though I do experience the call of the void.

    I am pretty bad about remembering names. The only thing I do that sort of helps is mentally repeat their name several times while looking at them. If I'm meeting more than 2 or 3 people though, that's out the window. In that case I just focus on a few people I click with and don't worry too much about the rest.

    I'm going to pick two, but for the same reason: Venus and Jupiter. I really like the idea of a station floating in the clouds, balanced between the vastness of space above and the cataclysmic atmosphere below.

    You haven't lived until you (or your partner) discovers a spider the size of your hand in the shower with you. That makes for exciting times.

    So, we have four cats. One of these cats in particular is a monstrous, predatory, a-hole. All of our cats are indoor cats; 3 for their health and well-being, and 1 for the health and well being of everything outdoors. Anything that gets into the house takes its life in its own appendages, as it has just entered the Thunderdome and will likely only survive if I find it first. Granted, not a lot of critters can/do get into our house. But there was a time before I found (and plugged) the point where snakes were getting in that I was finding the occasional remains. For anything too small for her notice or concern (like ants) we just clean and sometimes use a barrier spray.

    It's been okay so far, but sometimes it blows.

    Like @Argentee said, what is this "fall" you speak of? I'm just hoping it gets below 80F (27C) by the time the Halloween parties roll around.

    I've always liked lapis lazuli, primarily because of the name. Though it's pretty too.
  13. Yeah, I'm kind of confused why the kids are a core set addition instead of an optional add.

    My summer highlight was my trip out to Vegas, Zion, and SW Utah. I vote you should keep this thread clear of Bones V related stuff.

    I like that it's "pretty good" in a lot of different ways. Would it be nice to have seasons? Maybe, but I appreciate not having any of the winter BS the rest of the country experiences. And the days when the weather hits that perfect combination of sunny, breezy, and pleasantly warm are just sublime. Would I like mountains closer to me? Definitely, but beaches, forests, rivers, springs, and swamps are lovely too. Plus, my girlfriend is terrified of heights, so I wouldn't get her on many mountain trails anyway. There's enough people to support all kinds of scenes and activities, for whatever you're into. We've got a half-dozen FLGS and there are board game meetups almost every night of the week. I could go scuba and sky diving in the same day, if I wanted. There are two dozen local breweries withing 30 minutes of my house, along with bars with arcades, axe throwing, or live amateur wrestling (the WWE is based here). Lots of concert tours are going to include a stop in Tampa, Miami, or Orlando. If you're an introverted hermit that hates the outdoors, well, most places deliver and your home definitely has central air.

    An art museum. Though there tends to be a fair bit of overlap with history there if the museum has an anthropological focus or wing.

    Partly cloudy with a high of 86°F. The rest of the week will be sunny with light breezes and highs in the low 90s and humidity of 60ish%.

    My summer was pretty good. Lots of pool parties, karaoke, and games. Plus I got to go hiking and camping in Nevada and Utah for 10 days (Valley of Fire, Kolob, Red, and Zion canyons) and see some friends in Vegas.

    At Panera Bread that is the sandwich. Rather, I can't eat a whole bread bowl and a sandwich on top of that.

    I never enjoyed back to school shopping as a kid. Now, I don't have children so I don't even notice it as a thing.

    Sleep, soup, and DayQuil if I need to be functional for something. I don't get sick very often, and I'm not usually sick very long when I do.
  25. I guess this is sort of related to the question, though only mildly weird; I eat kiwi fruit whole. Fuzzy skin and all.
