    I have blue placemats on my table.

    Amazingly, stayed on topic for four pages. (Apart from a couple of slip-ups...)
    I think we deserve a round of applause.

    Hot, humid; the family's grouchy, we're having company for dinner tomorrow, and I don't feel like cleaning up. Meh. :tongue:

    My priest stood up to the podium to read the Gospel and said, "There's something wrong with this microphone". We couldn't hear him very well, so some dutifully replied "And also with you".

    I'm worrying about John. Hope that everything's okay with him. I also tried to check his twitter entries, but nothing since the 5th (or 4th?) of Aug. No new entries by Garry, either...

    TIME OUT!


    Maybe they're on a romantic getaway. About time, if you ask me, Garry should have left him ages ago when he wouldn't take him to Aruba.

    Maybe :bigsmile:. Gungas posted a comment, I feel a bit better now, it seems he's busy with his latest divorce.

    Company coming in 2 hours, and the house is still a mess, and it's too hot to move.

    Gungas, your pic is invisible for me, just the red-cross icon appears, nothing else. Even if I click on it.

    My computer is running very slowly--each page takes at least 35 seconds to download. And Mr. Thing just complained about my body heat making his office too hot. (We're all a bit crazy with this heat and humidity.) And my heart is doing flip-flops, so I think it's time for me to go have a nice, cool shower and a lie-down.

    Just came back from a night on the town followed by a 30 minute night-bus ride with a friend and a guitar, and an eager audience. Got to do Mary J. Blige and Bob Dylan in the same night. And LOUDLY! In a public place! I'm feeling so elated :swingin:

    Another hot and humid day in CT. And a hurricane that keeps getting forecast to come further and further west, and in greater and greater strength.

    Time to start battening the hatches, I think!

    A man from my church just died. Had Parkinson's disease for over 15 years. I'm sure he's dancing, wherever he is right now. RIP, Jay.

    It's 10:43pm, and I'm still wide awake. Time for some melatonin and lorazepam. At least if I can't sleep, I won't mind.

    Never mind three threads back, last week I bought my first new chair for my home office in thirty years, having felt I deserved one that didn't have a broken caster and whose padded seat -- what was left of it -- wasn't shredded by my three cats, which resulted in a loss of a majority of the furniture's stuffing of course, generally eaten by said felines and subsequently regurgitated at various times in the middle of the night and locations in the house, but nonetheless I am certain that the left side of the seat of this new chair is firmer than the other and I am enduring a distinct crampage in that cheek not to mention the right armrest is higher than the left one and I surely wonder if this is similar to my last experience horseback riding, having never been since 1986, well, it was just that once anyway because they didn't pad the saddle and I suffered the greatest beating of my life as the animal trotted around some forested area for 15 minutes, but no matter, I feel somewhat similar right now, contemplating as I am the prospect of returning the new chair to the store and attempting to run out to retrieve my old one, which I had fondly entitled "Scratchpost", from the garbage truck rumbling down the street as we speak, or shall I say as "I" speak, since I am aware I'm doing all the talking and am not sure if you want to actually say anything because you appear to be blue in the face, or is that because you're holding your breath waiting for me to stop my soliloquoy, for which in that instance I apologize but someone did suggest this thread -- of course I typed "threat" but had to backspace and change it to "thread" -- was for precisely the purpose of errantness and distraction from all our worldly problems and of course the passing of at least two point three minutes of valuable time, not to mention the several bytes of disk space being consumed on this Vanilla server -- but what is a "Vanilla" server anyway because you'd think it would be a "Cheese" server -- and at this point one of my cats has joined me on my desk and before he walks across in front of my keyboard, possibly hitting "cancel" thereby resulting in a complete loss of effort, time and bytes, I should most certainly "end" this rant, causing me to become "gant". PERIOD. Yes, a PERIOD! And so now I shall "shift" my weight and attempt to move some hemoglobin from one side of my seat to the other or else perhaps stumble up to the kitchen where it's "bran stick" time, what some call "granola bars", to get me through still more of said rants, especially since I do contribute to the world's knowledge base in other forums, not just in this lovely place, but wait! Now said cat has firmly affixed himself on my lap, with his 13 pounds -- well, at least half of it so distributed -- on said now-spastic half-rump, compelling me to "act" lest his two brothers decide (one is only a half sibling but don't tell him that) to also occupy my sorry excuse for a boney lap.

    So there!

    The only question remaining is "peanut" granola bar or "multi-grain"?!
