Re: OT the summer without baseball...

It's about the same here. Sometimes I can get the Brewers games on the radio.

Forget Time Warner Cable. I plan on seeing a few games at the ballpark.

Re: Does Anybody Really?

I don't know. I didn't exactly stretch to buy this house. I have been fixing it up, but I still haven't put A/C in or gotten a washer & dryer. Except for the beds, most of the furniture was bought used. This is not entirely frugality - around [more]

Re: Infected by Windows Office :-(

Because, aside from what I personally want to do with Windows Office, I want to say that I have experience on it, and not on Open Office. Or at least that I can do stuff with it. I know what my employer is like, I know what program they are using at [more]

Re: Infected by Windows Office :-(

Wow, what a drag. I'd also call the credit card, if that happened.

I've been meaning to get Office and the main thing that has stopped me is the time needed to download a big thing like that with my crummy connection. Now I *think* I've [more]

Re: Tax day: off to post office

Well, it sounds like you got it in by the deadline. That's what matters. I've had one year where I had to file for an extension - I had used Turbo Tax & hadn't printed out the previous year's form because of printer trouble or no ink or some [more]

Re: spring fling

I can't wait. Tenants moved out, just up the block, and left broken furniture and stuff in the alley.

Re: TBL - Update

The strange thing about losing weight and dropping from one size to another is that if you start as a 1X and go down to a Large you are probably going from one size range to another, and maybe in a different brand or even a different store. So it's [more]

Re: Saturday night check-in

Hi ST,

No, I'm here in the U.S. One of my favorite beers happens to come in pint bottles.

I'm very lucky that in my present occupation I can get away with wearing jeans/khakis and t-shirts, especially during construction season. [more]

Re: Car Ethics

I don't think I'd like to have robot cars in my neighborhood. Too many dogs, pedestrians, children on bicycles. And a lot of road work and utility work happening.

What happens if a robot car kills a child?

Re: Saturday night check-in

I'm OK at the moment but the social life has yet to really get off the ground since breaking up with ex-BF AGES ago. I feel horribly out of practice at any sort of social activity.

I have to get back to sewing more of my own clothes because [more]

Re: Anyone cooking this weekend?

That red beans & rice sounds delicious.

I'm probably going to make chili. I don't decide until I see what's good at the supermarket (or, in season, at the farmers' market.)

some progress

It seems like it is taking FOREVER to get my house organized and looking good. I did make some progress this week.

I got a real bed for the spare bedroom. Stashed the window fans underneath until the weather warms up.

Went to IKEA [more]

Re: missing 777 update

I think it means the prime minister is deeply pessimistic about the fate of the plane, and VERY tired of the whole business.

Re: Re-doing bathtub/shower-experiences?

Don't worry, I'm not planning on doing THAT part myself. The plan is to call some company that does that sort of thing, and have them refinish the tub. I'm fine with painting walls, and I'm willing to try tile and wainscoting, but some things seem [more]

Re: Re-doing bathtub/shower-experiences?

That tub refinishing thing sounds interesting. I am fixing up my bathroom & thinking of having the tub refinished with that "epoxy paint". The bathtub looks to be original from 1951, it is OK except the finish is worn.

Re: Poll: Is It OK To Sleep With Your Ex?

I dunno. How badly do you need a ride to the airport first thing in the morning?

no, really... I think it's probably a bad idea unless you sort of think you might want the ex back... me, I think I want a different one this time.

Re: MH370 at least it's new "news" on

Maybe he did all that and then missed the runway wherever it was he was going, and the plane is practically out of sight, crashed in some jungle.

Even if it was a different scenario - such as lithium ion batteries catching fire in the hold [more]
