  1. SWMBO and I have this week off work. Been getting a few things sorted out around the house - today after the dishwasher install guy had been I replaced the kitchen tap (we had to empty out that cupboard for him to work, so figured I might as well take advantage while it was empty). Dishwasher was replaced because the old one had had it. And it was an old one, the installer said it was about twice as old as the house, so was probably already used when it was installed here. Also been doing a bit of work in the garden. On the weekend we visited some people who had come to the wedding who happen to also run a nursery. Got a few tips as well as a couple of new plants.
  2. Aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!! *twitch*
  3. Yeah. The moon doesn't move all that fast relative to the Earth, but if you delayed the launch by 3 minutes and 30 seconds (the length of The Proclaimers' song I'm Gonna Be), you'd miss the ISS by almost exactly 1000 miles.
  4. I've actually attended a championship competition a few years ago. Those women are VERY athletic.
  5. Or both... And driving through a stack of cardboard boxes. Can't forget that part. https://dilbert.com/strip/1997-10-29
  6. My sister gave birth yesterday. This is my first niece/nephew to be born (but my sixth niece/nephew - the other five were inherited during the wedding)...
  7. I read the second word as "painting" at first and had to go back and re-read... Cute and dangerous are not mutually exclusive. I mean, have you seen Tasmanian devils?
  8. Update on the wayward AC guy. He realized once he was on the roof that he'd knocked on the wrong door. Our AC is fine tho. I expect we won't need it for awhile, after this weekend's random bout of entirely normal warm weather it's supposed to get pointlessly cold again. This isn't summer, it's San Francisco Summer. I was wondering if he might be soliciting. In any case, if you hadn't called for him, I wouldn't have allowed him in.
  9. We made fajitas tonight, but used chapati instead of tortillas and wombok instead of lettuce. Talk about fusion/confusion...
  10. When I asked about the possibility, I meant from your side as well as theirs. I can totally agree on your reluctance given your mother's location. And I'm sure there are some other ties you have to your current location. Whichever decision you make, though, I'm sure you have a lot of support right here. You certainly do from me.
  11. Is there any possibility of moving to follow the job? Or getting a similar job locally? Thanks for the suggestions of updates to the order. My knowledge of it was from before they started adding poor fan-fic films (which those two additions were after).
  12. I like the Machete order - Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back, Phantom Menace (optional), Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, Return of the Jedi. Progresses the story most logically. You have the "new kid learning about the force" story, followed by the "Darth Vader's your father" story. Then you go into the flashbacks to learn a bit of history, which finishes with Luke and Leia being born. Then Return of the Jedi is where they find out about being siblings.
