  1. " 'it " finally came out last night so there is no need for the dreaded apparatus.

  3. For some reason we now have to go to the person's profile to read replies again.

      Fixed.

  4. Freezing rain sucks.  We had some yesterday, and even though it is now 36 F  there is still a sheet of ice on my car windows. 

    1. Zoyous

      Zoyous

      If you can carefully removed the sheet of ice intact, you can then use it as a mold to create as many duplicates of your car as you want!

      Freezing rain is much worse than snow. Glad we just get snow!

      Yeah, I'd definitely rather have flat-out snow than freezing rain.

  5. No snow yet.  The weather people's computer model was wrong.

      I should get out my shovel and continue to break up the snowdrift still covering part of my driveway.  High today of 39 followed by 4 days of 40's or better.  Some more shoveling on this rock hard snow and I can easily get out both vehicles from the garage haha.

      It was supposed to snow here. And it never did. Just like all the other times they said it was going to snow and you get nothing.

      We got slammed Friday night! 5-6" worth and now it's super gusty, blowing all this shit around. Of course, temp is dropping now too, so can look forward to an icy driveway and roads tomorrow. At least all this is happening on the weekend!  :)

  6. Going to get some snOW tomorrOW.

    If I was still in grade school I wouldn't be happy about it being on the weekend.

     

  7. The holidays flew by this season.  I like the giving part, but I've grown to hate dealing with the tree, ornaments, and decorations.

      I work in an understaffed grocery store, so am glad the holidays are over. What makes me sad is I can't really enjoy them anymore as working retail the past 19 years sort of ruined them for me.

    2. BydoEmpire

      BydoEmpire

      My wife's the opposite, she loves the decorations, music, etc... but hates the gift giving. Too stressful to find "the right thing" or spend a bunch of money on useless junk the other person don't really want or need.  I kinda like it all...

      I'm the Grinch, I dislike all the clutter, waste, and noise. Don't need anything, don't want to give people stuff they don't need. 

       

      This is how I feel: https://slate.com/human-interest/2019/12/christmas-cards-are-canceled-please-stop.html

       

      Bah, humbug! But I guess it's fun for children.

  8. It snowed about 2.5 inches yesterday.  Going up to fifties and lower sixties this weekend.

    1. GoldLeader

      You guys are lucky it's over so fast!!  I still have a snowdrift covering some  of my driveway from December 30th!  haha...This stuff takes a while to go away...But yesterday it was 47 and today it's supposed to be 47 too, so hopefully it will melt away...Here's what it looked like before I shoveled haha...(Can't find the "after" pic)...

      That's kind of the best case scenario for snow; a light dusting that is gone in a couple of days

  9. Update:  I got the 2nd box of shakes yesterday.  It turns out that they were just  shipped separately.

    1. atari2600land

      atari2600land

      DTs or milk?

    2. joeatari1

      joeatari1

      Does your milk shake bring all the boys to the yard?

  10. Today is the first time in 20 years I didn't get something I ordered  on eBay.  I got one box of shakes instead of two.  Just contacted the seller so hopefully this will get worked out easily.

    1. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      My sister sent me 2 boxes for Christmas and they arrived 2 days apart...Is there a chance the other box will show up in a day or so?

      You are one lucky man

      I get the shakes sometimes.  Not something I would pay for. :P

  11. There were no calls on Christmas and New Year's Day.  It's a Festivus miracle!!

  12. Merry Christmas!

  13. "Seaweed Assault" is HARD. I got 239 my first session on my 3rd or 4th try.

      It's a really fun game, though...Kind of a pick up and play classic!

      Seaweed Assault is awesome.

      It's hard to believe that was about 25 years ago.

  16. It's Christmas time!  You'll shoot your eye out!! "It was the classic mother bb gun block."

  17. We need the temperature to go up 1 or 2 degrees to avoid freezing rain.  But it's going to warm up later and change to rain.  Just hope we don't get much freezing before the change.

  18. I watched "A Christmas Story 2"  while the hallway and stairwell were being painted.   Looks like I picked the RIGHT week to take up paint fumes.

  19. I got a call from my own name and number.  LOL Damn scammers.  If this happens to you don't pick up. I didn't.  Checked google and this is without a doubt a scammer calling.

    1. Joe C.

      Joe C.

      That scam has been around a long time. They will use your number to call other people and harass them too. Be careful.

    2. Zoyous

      Zoyous

      Now wait a second... it could be a call from your future self, who has access to time travel, and has gone back to the 80s and picked up mint condition copies of everything you want to collect, and has now traveled forward to your present to hand off the goods!

  20. Thank you AtariAge.  I was feeling stressed out about the next few weeks.  Getting on here and escaping for awhile calmed me down.

    1. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      It is a great escape!

  21. The good thing about going to relatives is you don't have to cook.  The bad thing is you don't have leftovers so you have to cook a new meal.

      Cooking a turkey is so easy, though.  Rinse it off, Put it in a pan, drizzle some oil and seasoning/rub if you like, and then wait 5 hours.  You really don't have to do much.  It's the side dishes that take all the time, if you want to get fancy, but you don't need to.

  23. Thanksgiving will soon be here.  I got invited to my cousin's house so I don't have to cook this year. How about you?

      I didn't get invited to your cousin's house.

      I don't like turkey, cranberries, yams, etc. so I'm bringing a beef stew in the crock pot to my folks' house.  Every family member lives at least somewhat close to each other but my oldest sister and mom don't come (stupid past family issues, and my mom divorced my dad around 1979).  I'll do a Thanksgiving dinner with my mom the following weekend, either a roast or prime rib and Au Gratin potatoes.

      OK! I'll get your relatives to steal your parent's stuff to make your funeral look nice, then ask then to systematically remove as much documentation of you from history as possible. 👍

      I had a comic book where Goofy acted as King Tut. For some reason I can't find the original English edition, though I found it in Swedish and Italian.
