  1. You have flags (or very symmetrical laundry) too!
  2. Nice work @Konas. Amazing what you can get accomplished when you are home sick, uh, dedicate some time to painting. Yeah. p.s. You have a much bigger backyard than I do. p.p.s. I want the blue chair in your yard!
  3. OK, it's not like visiting Bora Bora, but it's been on my list for a while. My crazy sister got a big slab of marble for a wedding gift when I was 16-ish. She liked to bake, but bottom line, it was too heavy to be practical for her. About 6 years later (give or take several years), she was going to toss it, and I told her I'd take it. I had grand schemes to get it built into a counter top or table or something, but that never happened. I moved this heavy marble slab about 10 times before I settled into my house. Everytime I go to pull out blender or mixer or cookie sheet, I would look at it and vow I would use that 🤬 slab of marble before I die. Friday, someone tried to help me change my RO water filters (unsuccessful smh), which meant everything under my sink had to come out. All that junk (how I ended up with 6 bottles of lemon oil, I'll never know) ended up on my kitchen counter. Friday night, I figured drinking a cocktail and watching a recorded show sounded better than putting all that stuff under the sink. The next day, I thought I was going to Neil's house for him to show me how he makes pizza sauce and dough. I got over there and he tells me we're doing it at my house. smh. So I managed to get enough space cleared for making/mixing the dough, but we needed to kneed it too. Hey, I have this massively heavy slab of marble we can use! Check that off the to do list. #checkedBucketListItem
  4. It's nice having live in playmates. My fish seem totally disinterested in playing games.
  5. I'm getting really sick and tired of big corporations like Disney and Fox screwing over their viewers when trying to extort larger bundles of cash from providers like DISH. Just in the 2nd quarter of the NFL and B1G football schedules and 2nd week of the fall season, and they yank the plug. Just because they want to raise their rates by double digits. 🤬 https://finance.yahoo.com/news/fox-blocks-millions-dish-customers-181100550.html
  6. I did some grocery shopping over my lunch break. Pumpkin Cherrios! I can lower my cholesterol and enjoy pumpkin goodness!
  7. Maybe it's just me, but when I look at this board, I see pierced nipples. 😂
  8. I played Concordia again. With a different group this time. One of the players is a pouter. If she thinks someone else is going to win, she whines. In the end we were all within a card of each other winning, but she carried on for about 45 minutes. Got real annoying.
  9. Next up is pig flesh. We'll see...
  10. Much better than my first attempt at a lot of skin, that's for sure.
  11. Last hero (until the expansion smh): Leshy. The colors are cooler in person. "LED blue" eyes. Blue/mother of pearl staff crystal. The "antlers" turned out really cool. He was a lot of fun to paint, and felt like nothing after painting the troll. Only one ordinary trap left for this game.
  12. @Konas I finished my Village Attacks Troll! Note: not completly dried. His only purpose in the game is to cause havoc. 😛 Photo bombs by Jack O. Lantern and Mrs Fisher's sister.
  13. I hate to admit it, but I get a real kick out of watching the meat chicken football/basketball teams get embarrassed. I guess a lot of the players and most of the "fans" are so easy to hate. But the real icing on the cake is when the fans realize that they got sucked in by the hype yet again. Anyway, I live next door to a big Wisconsin fan. As I was watching the Michigan State/Northwestern game, I could hear him whooping it up over and over through the window. When my game came had a commercial break, I changed the channel to the other game. Whisky was leading 35-0 and the crowd was chanting overrated! OMG!
  14. That commercial is the only way I knew he was a singer too. 😁
  15. OK @marsniper_27. I was chatting with my gf who turned me on to this show. She thinks that the fox (with the lit up eye and the superhero reference) could be Jeremy Renner of Avengers/Hawkeye fame.
  16. That sounds like my mode, except I chat with friends about what they think.
  17. I just looked her up. She's 5'2" which fits too. I figured her height could narrow things down.
  18. I've never heard of her. LOL The more I think about it, the more I like my guess for Tina Turner for the Flamingo.
  19. OK. I watched it. I didn't totally figure out anything, but think the Flamingo is Tina Turner. Come on. Let me see you shake your tail feather. How great would it be if Ice cream was Redfoo? Others I hope are there: Vanilla Ice (Rotweiler), Serena Williams as the Leopard, Bruce Springsteen as the Eagle, and how great would it be if Jeff Dunham were the Skeleton. 😁 I Keel you! When I saw the Christmas Tree, I immediately thought of Miss Richfield 1981 LOL! She's fabulous, and a must see if you've never heard of her. A Minnesota treasure for sure. Bob Dylan? Bob Schmillan. Longer version:
  20. I had some reflexology testing done and was told peanuts, dairy, and MSG are death to me! Just shoot me in the head why don't you. No cream in the coffee, or Lattes, or coffee fraps! 😭 I thought that was, for the most part, the worst of it. If only. On Sunday I went out to breakfast, and they had their seasonal stuff that I usually always love. Pumpkin pancakes! At first I was thinking no fantastic whip cream with cinnamon. That sucks. Then I saw that dreaded word: buttermilk!!! 😡 Thank God that at least they had pumpkin muffins. I went to get a couple of them on the way out but then saw that they were slathered with sour cream frosting. 🤬🤬 On the plus side, I've felt SO MUCH BETTER since I stopped the dreaded triumvirate, but geez.
  21. I loved the twitch. I really wanted him to be Donny Wahlberg.
