It is last person to speak wins, but it's more like an open thread for anyone to say anything, have a fun conversation.

First time I've seen James Mason too

 :o

Didn't you just watch the original Heaven Can Wait?.. or was that someone else on the boards? If it was you, you should watch the remake sometime to compare the two.. he's in that. But you have to see Lolita... have to have to have to see it. After finals go get it.

I was the one :D Warren Beatty's Heaven Can Wait? It's a remake of a different movie.

But you have to see Lolita... have to have to have to see it. After finals go get it. 
It has been on my to-watch list for ages, both versions. I read the book ages ago.

I think they are the same person.

:D You know it would've been pretty cool if they were in a movie together, father and son or something. Shame... I would watch both read the yellowpages.

Wait.. you saw Heaven Can Wait?.. or, Here Comes Mr. Jordan? If you saw Heaven Can Wait, then Mason was Jordan.

Don't bother with the 90's version of Lolita. Just see the 1962 one.

I saw Lubitsch's Heaven Can Wait from 1943. Beatty's Heaven Can Wait (1978) is a remake of Here Comes Mr Jordan (1941).

Just did the first two papers of History today! :o still panicking for paper 3 tomorrow.

I tend to feel that "Down To Earth (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0231775/)" starring Chris Rock was a remake (loosely) of Beatty's "Heaven Can Wait".

My friend's PC used to turn itself on and off on it's own.  Replacing the power switch fixed it.  I don't know if it's the same with your laptop, but have you tried pulling out the plug and battery?  That'd show him! :D

I googled it and it seems to be a driver problem. And after I click 'Shutdown' an error pops up something about x00000000 or whatever. Is there anyway to scan all drivers and update them automatically?

Hope the papers went well :)

Is it a BSOD or a message box?  I've seen adverts pop-up claiming they can scan your PC and update drivers, I'm not sure I trust any of them though :D

The driver updates offered by Windows Update rarely work well for me.

Goggles gave me this: http://forum.maxthon.com/viewthread.php?tid=50676
After you find out which ones are out-of-date, it suggests you find and install the drivers manually.

It's a msg box. Then the screen goes dark and there's some text and two buttons. One saying 'Force shutdown' and 'Cancel'. But then it goes away really quickly, so I don't even have time to read it.

My laptop can play DVDs, but the TV has a remote control.  A remote control with brand new batteries.

How about zoetrope?
Wouldn't it be cool if they released a whole movie on one of them!  Piracy would be less of a problem because it'd all be cam rips or a bunch of images you print out.  Then some spoilsport is going to release software which plays it all in sequence >:(.

Almost all of my high school pix got water damaged in a flood plus almost all of my ancient awesome as you put it.

Kids found my medals and played with them quite happily.  Can't find the rest of them though.

Also a while back, told the U we had an invisible downstairs that had a jewel inside.  He spent the entire day looking for the door.  A couple days later, he found a huge glass bauble and said he'd found the door and the jewel.  To be fair, it does look like a big diamond.

I was going to suggest you get a cable that'll feed your VCR output to your PC so you can then screen capture and/or convert it directly to DVD format with the included software but that would require your VCR to be working to begin with :D

VCR's should be dirt cheap anyway, I'm sure you can find one somehow, online perhaps?

And like Dweez said, dvd players are pretty cheap. Most DVD movies I see in walmart or target run for $5 even since blu-ray started kicking hard in the buns.  :P

My browser crashed and I lost my very detailed reply :'(

In brief, from what I recall:

My old university opened their ports after 7pm to allow residents to connect their consoles and bittorrents some internet access.

Before they did that, I used to use a SSH tunnel to get my kicks.  I got a warning for that.

Usenet always seemed to work, but it will cost money.  From what I've heard, the speed and content you get is worth the money.

At university, I used to use DC++.  It works really well within the LAN - someone sets up a hub, everyone connects to it using DC++ (or whatever other client they want), and you get LAN speeds.  I got 1MB/s (yay!).

If the university got a copyright infringement notice, the computer people would disconnect that computer/room from the network.  To get their connection back, they'd have to prove the file does not exist on their PC any more.

I don't know if London universities are as lenient.  Your best option is to wait and see.  Maybe make friends with the computer science guys.  Especially that quiet spotty fat one with the thick glasses and filthy t-shirt, they're always a lot of fun :D.

Seems like LSE has amazing internet.
I think a lot of universities here have very fast internet connections.  They're part of some network thing called JANET and I heard they use fibre optics and lasers and stuff.

Another question for the UK peeps, what's the most popular phone carrier? I need to get a phone and they're all freakin expensive and almost exactly the same.
From my own experience, the Three network gives terrible reception.  Unless I'm outside.  I only use it because all two of my friends are on Three and I get unlimited calls to them.  I also use it because it's cheap.

My T-Mobile phone gets better reception, but I can't afford to put in more than ?5 a quarter into it, so I don't get a lot of fun stuff out of it.

With Orange, you can get two cinema tickets for the price of one every Wednesday.  That's nice.  I don't think Orange is very cheap though.  Tesco Mobile and Asda Mobile are cheap, but I don't know if it includes internet.  Internet is important for telephones these days if you want to check your e-mails on the go.

You may be able to get discounts with your NUS card.  An NUS card gets you discounts on a lot of things, mostly in shops where you'd be paying too much anyway :D.  You can get your NUS card from your university's Student's Union, sometimes for free.  I think most London universities give it for free.  Essex don't :-\.

That reminds me, Google's Navigation made me take the long route yesterday, I was late for my interview.  I will never trust technology again >:(.

I used to be on Vodafone back in 2002, when I had my 3310.  It had good signal.

I don't personally know anyone that is on Vodafone, but I heard they're nice to loyal customers.

If I were you I'd try and get a sim only deal with either T-Mobile or O2 (Orange has too many blind spots around London). For ?10 or ?15 a month you'll get plenty of minutes, texts and bandwidth and they are only 30 day rolling contracts to you can opt out at any time. 

Don't ever go with the '3' network.

If you want a cheap phone while you are here, try and locate a CeX store (used to be one by Goodge st) as they sell quality second hand stuff, or if you are not fussy, I have a drawful of dormant phones and you are welcome to one.

I spent a lot of time in that area as I used to live on a street called Park Village East, used to work in Great Russell St,and my former girlfriend did her Anthropology degree at UCL.

You really should try this restaurant if you like Indian and don't mind vegetarian - it used to be talk of the town a few years back:

You can get by with green ones if you throw them into a blender with vanilla ice cream , milk, and lots of sugar. But then that might defeat the purpose of eating them green to begin with.  ;D

I love milkshake. It's always very filling. I never add the ice cream to it though because I hardly have any ice cream around, but I think I just made myself want some. :P

BTW, I have a question about mobile carriers in the UK. I have a proper bank account now so I can finally get a contract for a phone. I quite like the HTC Desire. Orange has a 24-month contract with unlimited texts, 300 min and 500MB data; all for ?22.98/mo and 49.99 up front. But I see that 3 has a refurb which is ?20/mo for 5000 texts, 100 min and 500MB. Hmmm...

BTW, I have a question about mobile carriers in the UK.....

Generally speaking "3" are considered the laughing stock among providers as rarely can you get a signal.  Orange are pretty shoddy on coverage but since they merged with T-Mobile you can now roam between the 2 services to get the best reception. O2 have other good incentives like free answerphone calling. 
Title: Re: Last Person to Speak Wins! 第四部曲
Post by: feelingindifferent on January 06, 2011, 09:03:57 AM
So would it be advisable to go with Orange since it's merging with T-Mobile? Because it is a 24-month contract after all, wouldn't want to be stuck with bad coverage. Any idea about the 3G speeds?

T-Mobile have great deals but poor customer service - Orange you have to squeeze a bit more to get what you want but have great customer service.  I was with Orange for 15 years but they have little or no coverage on my street so I switched to T-Mobile.  That meant I lost all my loyalty bits and bobs and now I could have camped on to the T-Mobile Cells with an Orange contract and had a sparkling new phone every year.  I digress though...

That's odd? that article says only 32bit versions but the parent site doesn't mention them.  There also doesn't seem to be a download link on the parent site but there is one on the page you linked to - all they have on the parent site it "buy now" buttons.

This was a fun weekend.  It wasn't as fun as what we used to have in earlier years but it was still pretty much fun.

I'll post pics as soon as I get them.  I brought my camera with me but I completely forgot to stick the memory card in.

Oh yeah.  A Brit hit on me last night, I just remembered now.  I think the first thing he said to me was "You look very intelligent."  My friends laughed.

He said he was a surfer dude from London.  That puzzled me a bit;surfing in London?  And then he said, nah, he was just born in London but he grew up in Cornwall.

Benny, I think they said his name was, also lay down in the streets and rolled around, prolly on a dare.  He also crawled between another dude's legs, prolly cause he lost a bet.  The dude was kinda drunk himself so when Benny stuck his head and shoulders through the gap between, he fell over.  It was funny seeing two grown men, drunk as skunks, rolling around in the street.

Damn Brit pinched my butt while I was talking to one of my friends.  I told him to try it again; every guy in the place was a friend, some all the way from when we were little kids.  It was a surefire way to get his vacation extended, just not in the way he'd like.

By the way, everyone thought he was American. ;D

Not really, she keeps relapsing but it is definitely not a bacterial cough so there is not much that can be done.  These persistent coughs are really common among the kids at school around here at the moment, and are tending to last longer than 3 months.

Put a humidifier in her room a few weeks ago and that stops her coughing at night, so at least now she is getting enough sleep.

Three months?  Wow, that's a long time.  That can't be very comfortable for the kids.  The doc ruled out a viral thingie too?  If it's viral, antibiotics really won't help.

The kids tend to cough when the weather frequently changes like it's been doing lately.  It's mostly been raining but when the sun shines, it's really hot.
Title: Re: Last Person to Speak Wins! 第四部曲
Post by: smokester on February 03, 2011, 07:37:12 AM

If it's not bacterial it has to be viral (ruling out allergies), and there is nothing whatsoever you can do about a virus.  She is still 4 and in reception at school, and most kids in their first couple of years get between 8 and 10 coughs a year - my son actually developed pnumonia in nursery (age 3) and scarlett fever on reception (age 4). Around the time he was in year 2 (age 6) he started batting illnesses away his immune system was functioning so well, and hasn't really been 'ill' since then for more than a day or 2 (touch wood) although swine flu allowed him to develop croup that nearly killed him.  I'm hoping my daughter will follow the same pattern and develop tougher defences as she gets older and the really good thing is, no matter how ill she is she never knows it, she just goes about her business as usual, coughing and spluttering as she goes.

Do you have any history of asthma or allergic rhinitis in your family?  Almost everyone in my family has asthma and the King is asthmatic so naturally, the kids are too.  I'm lucky I'm not (only suffer from allergic rhinitis).  I once had the CP develop pneumonia and the U bronchitis at the same time.  It was also due to bad weather.  The kids usually get a cough after a bout with a cold or allergic rhinitis.  It's the post nasal drip that gets them.

Although, ever since we moved here, the kids' asthma attacks have dropped considerably.  I find it kinda strange since the city we used to live in had much cleaner air and was typhoon free.  The same is true of my allergy attacks.

Hope the kids get better.  It's so hard when it's the little ones that are sick.

Also I've been meaning to ask Sub, what does dedma mean?

When I went to the CP's school, all the teachers were "It's fine, it's temporary anyway."  Now they're bugging the CP to have it removed stat.  I told him to ignore them and to have them call me if they give him grief.

@dweez  Exactly.  Dedma to them all. :D

Does anyone believe in ghosts?  I mean the real kind?  My friend is convinced her nephew (who recently committed suicide because his gf here dumped him; totally sad as he was only 19) is haunting her.  Apparently he wants her to talk to his ex to tell the latter that he did it because he couldn't go on without her.  It's driving her nuts.

I don't want to discredit or downplay your friend's emotions, but I personally don't believe in ghosts as defined by "the souls of the dead still here on earth".  I believe there are spirits that interact with the physical plane but I believe they are angels and demons.

I don't personally, I reckon if ghosts existed there'd be some hard evidence of it by now.

Is the ex not already aware of the suicide?

I'm not quite sure where I stand on the ghost thing.  I'm Pinoy so yeah, we're a superstitious bunch.  Seriously.  I'm not too big on it though.

Honestly, I lost my faith a long while back and am on the long and difficult road of getting back on it.  It's true that people turn to faith in times of deep distress.  I know I did.  And while I may be iffy on ghosts, I thing I really believe in signs.  Logic would say they're coincidences but I'm trying to cling to faith and believe that these signs are God's way of telling me to hold on.  I'm rambling now, sorry.

The girlfriend was not initially aware that the boy had committed suicide.  She found out soon enough though because his Facebook page got flooded with messages.  And she was the last person he talked to minutes before he jumped. 

My friend asked permission from the boy's parents to talk to the girl.  They said that if it would give their son peace, to go ahead.  Initially, the parents didn't want the girl to find out from them that their son had committed suicide.  The haunting stopped after my friend talked to the girl's mom.  She can sleep now without any weird stuff going on.

The guy at PC World said that when you save a document in Office 2010, you cannot open it in Office 2007 unless you specifically choose to save it in the Office 2007 format.  His shop-buddy agreed with him when I said that's untrue.  I think that was the only thing he said that was untrue.  Those people are eager, they keep talking and following and don't really give you any alone time.

Maybe Jadzia Dax, because in an old copy of the Star Trek magazine I used to buy, she was voted the number 2 sexiest woman in Star Trek.  Seven of Nine was number 1 and T'pol of Enterprise didn't exist.  I wanted Jadzia Dax to win, she's my favourite.

The spider is sitting above my door.  It hasn't moved since last night.  I think it's promised not to crawl into my mouth at night time.  It wasn't a pinky swear though, can't risk touching it.

If its on the wall. Find a plastic container and a piece of paper. Place the container over the spider and slide the piece of paper under it. Probably shouldn't scare you, some spiders are great at jumping and are incredibly fast.

I had to clear some of the dreaded English Ivy earlier this year, and I swear there were 10,000 hiding in it.  I had them bouncing off me and back onto another wall to scamper away (clever little agile buggers) and I even had a couple of very large ones crawling around the rim of my baseball cap. Usually I'd be a little "eek!" but there were just so many of them that you just had to get on with it.

Reddit (http://www.reddit.com/r/pics/comments/jn65k/wheres_walle/) has a list of all the robots, but I'm not looking it up because I don't ask for help, it makes me look weak amongst my peers.

Some of the robots look familiar, but I don't know the names.  Like them ones from Buck Rogers.  Oh wait, I think it's Twinky or Tweaky or something.  Can't remember the name of the circle-face on his tummy though.

"Max" is what I think when I look at the red one on the top, and I know it's from the same film as the hovering one near the bottom, but that's all that comes to me.  The DRD made me giggle.  I have so far resisted the urge to use the search engine provided on the Google web site to perform a web search to help me find some of the names.

To the dart enthusiasts:

How can you tell if the dart pin you are buying is a good one?  Does weight really matter that much?  And about the board, why are the triangle wires much better and how can you tell the difference between triangle and not?

Thanks!  :-*
Title: Re: Last Person to Speak Wins! 第四部曲
Post by: smokester on September 08, 2011, 08:08:00 AM
Dart weights are a personal thing and I have used a 23gram for most of my dart playing life.  A light dart would be about 16g and a heavy one about 28+g.  You also have to consider how you throw: if you tend to lob them a little than a barrel dart is right, but if you tend to punch them in straighter then a pencil dart would be better. Length of the dart must suit your grip otherwise things just won't work and you can also choose from pear flights or square ones.

Triangulated wire cuts down on bounce outs.

Sometimes they bounce, that's annoying.

The unofficial but widely accepted rule in darts, is that if you catch them from a bounce out, you can throw them again.  Occasionally you'll see a pro player catch one in the world championships or something and ask the ref if he can throw it again just to get a laugh.

The best action for throwing a dart accurately, is to turn it in your hand as you bring your arm back, and then reverse the turn as you throw the dart so that it is spinning through the air which should make it's flight more consistent.  Some people profess that a pear shaped fight it better equipped to the "spinning" process as the front of the dart is less susceptable to the air.  I have never really found this to be the case but have still swapped between the 2 shapes of flight when I was throwing badly, thinking that the other would improve things.

Then the following morning about 7am I wake to the sound of WW3 that is my children "interacting" with one another.  It can be the most soul destroying start to any day.  That said, a couple of smiles and cuddles later, it's all worthwhile again....for an hour or so at least.

Then I picked her up (all 25 kg of her) and took her to her bed. I held my breath waiting for the coughing to start again but fortunately it never happened.
Have you tried nebulizations before?

Only had to use a nebuliser when my son stopped breathing with Croup. I did buy a vapour humidifier a couple of days ago and that helps at night, and soon I will give her a steamy bath in the hope that it will loosen things up.  My partner (who works for a medical practice) got a prescription for a cough suppressant last night that worked wonders, but it is quite a strong medicine and I don't want to give her much during the day as it may lose effectiveness at night. I do give her honey stuff during the day, which helps a little.

Other than that, it's a case of waiting it out.

Thankfully she is not really ill at the moment, just can't stop coughing no matter what.  If she starts to run a temperature or loses her vigour, then I'll start to worry for sure.

Might try that kettle trick in the morning when it seems to be at its worst.

That is actually the piss-off with their advertising for the channel.  They list the F.A. cup games they show and the premiership odd one or 2, and it looks like a really healthy harvest for your money.  In reality though, they good stuff is so hit and miss that you end up forgetting about the channel completely.

I don't know why they don't just bid on Championship coverage as that doesn't seem to get a decent airing anywhere. Mind you, next season I'd have forgotten the Championship even exists, until the following season that is :)

I suppose she was only doing what is natural, however, the camera was a definite bad idea.

That video is going to make a lot of younger boys very insecure indeed.  I hope their parents have the necessary web protection on their computers as I can just hear the stampede of twelve year olds trying to find the clip now it's gone viral.

I assume the 'ultra' refers to 'his' thingmajig.

I know she is being praised to coming out and admitting it's her and all that, but as her fan base is probably prepubescent (and perhaps slightly older) I do think she should have distanced herself a little first so that she could have at least let them hope it wasn't her.

Insects can be dangerous little buggers at the best of times.  I worked with a woman who lost an eye after a wasp had flown in the drivers side window of her car and stung her 3 or 4 times in the same eye.

You know the Jains used to (some still do) wear mask to stop accidentally breathing in insects, but they do so for the insects' benefit not their own.

I've been in hospital all afternoon/evening as my daughter sustained a buckle fracture this week and we didn't know it until today (we'd thought it was a sprain until she was in real pain at the party). Damn schools with their "let me suck up to the posh parents" climbing apparatus in the playground.  I'd told the headmaster when he installed it that it was an accident waiting to happen and since that day there have been 10s if not 100s.

Extra pudding for the girl now until I run out of money...

As from Monday the supposed "Olympic family" arrive and so that part of London will be both controlled and on some kind of alert.  They also have these Olympic lanes that have signs telling you whether you can use it or not (I use any lane including bus lanes and the occasional pavement), but apparently you cannot turn right on them meaning half of London will be buggered for couriers and cabbies trying to travel all over town.  I'm way out of that area so other then some Olympic tourists that have to travel this far to buy an umbrella (umbrella companies must be having a field day), I doubt I'll even notice it's on.

Post by: smokester on July 22, 2012, 05:25:39 PM
Yeah, something just isn't right.  I usually just brush injuries off as I get far too many of them to start messing around with the doctor's etc.  Most of them heal quite quickly and although this might be improving overall too, there is still a sharp pain where the scaphoid is that is really, really sore when you touch it.

Deep bone bruise is my best scenario I think :(

Well, it's good news.  I had the X-Ray today and it's definitely not the scaphoid.  The pain had already become more localised to the base of the thumb, and the X-Ray revealed that there was just hint of a hairline fracture in the thumb's first bone and they issued me a splint.

Fractured or not, without the retrograde blood supply issue, I don't care whether the thumb is broken or otherwise.

Yippee!

One of these:

Rocks can be fun, depending on what they are made of.  Although, I am sure even people that don't smoke them, can have just as much fun with the little white kinds as people who do.  I don't. 

On the subject of rocks though, I love looking at them and I would collect more, if I found them.

And how they are made:  igneous, metamorphic, sedimentary, etc.  The crust of the earth is moving and not so stable.  Every now and then my house shakes to remind me of this floating state.

I'm a first generation Trekkie, so it runs deep.

And of course, the Caribbean isn't going anywhere, whilst the convention only happens very occasionally, and even more rarely on my doorstep.

That's the only reason I have for going, it happens so rarely.  I didn't want to go because seeing the actors that play the characters is bound to be a disappointment.  For example, I saw Colonel Tigh from Battlestar Galactica a few years back, and he kept talking as if he really was Tigh.  That was weird.

I may go for everything except that.  Maybe.  I wish I had a Klingon costume.

I'm going to cram watch every single episode of Star Trek to help me decide, it's the only way... all 725 episodes...

I collected the magazines that gave you a free copy of each of the DVDs (3 - 4 episodes per disc).  They were £7.99 fortnightly but considering the mags were a good read too, I suppose you were only paying a fiver or so for the DVDs.

Come on!! Doctors say the only thing you should put on skin burn is cold water. BUT:
If it's in the mouth (hot food) you could try this (http://www.walgreens.com/store/c/gum-canker-x-maximum-strength-canker-%26-mouth-sore-pain-relief-gel/ID=prod2921765-product). I've tried it when my daughter had a viral infection and it's pretty good.
If it's a skin burn you might try a silver sulfadiazine cream. I don't think you need a prescription for any of those.

I like aloe vera juice.  It's horribly expensive at this one place we go to though.  A glass is never enough for me.

I was in a car accident when I was around 5 or 6.  I ended up with badly abraded legs.  My grandma used to wrap my legs with aloe plants so that I wouldn't scar badly.  I dunno if it can prevent or minimize scar formation but my legs aren't too badly scarred.

My kids are 6 and 10 and although we've been on some holidays abroad, we haven't for about 4 years (due to economic pressure) and nowhere near anywhere as exotic as St Lucia.  I have been 7 times and I can't wait until my kids see that golden beach and clear green Caribbean sea.  They'll just burst with excitement.

And the Rum....

Oh, my, I've been there!! 4 whole months. Sometimes my daughter cried 4-5 hours non stop. She always cried in the evenings (not that she didn't cry at other times of the day  ::)) but one day it was already 9PM and she wasn't crying and my husband and I went WOOOHOOO!! She never cried bc of a tummy ache never again and she's almost 8 yrs. old now.
During those months I used to think: if this is motherhood I'm not cut out to be a mom. :)

Title: Re: Last Person to Speak Wins! 第四部曲
Post by: Beatrix on September 16, 2012, 04:18:27 PM
mm.  crying.  my five year old daughter, when she was little would have reminded you of your daughter Smoke, she never really complained.  If another child would cry around her, she would simply look at them, very confused.  Like a little woman, her little body build even made her look like a miniature adult.
Now-a-days though, she is accustom to crying during any time in which you make her do something she doesn't want to do.  I have yet to master the skill of "Your crying doesn't effect me, small child."
My son, I got him home from the hospital the first day, and he started crying about 45 minutes later.  Balling, and raging into emotional turmoil, this little itty bitty man.  So I sat him in his bassinet, and spoke to him softly.  I told him, "it's just you and me now guy, this is it *name.  It's just you and me now, and this is all we have.  He stopped crying within seconds.  He's never given me that much trouble since then either.  He did develop acid reflux for about 2 months till we got a handle on that.  It was stressful not to know what the problem was, I was racing through options.. gas, spicy food in my breast milk..
It was only a moment before the pediatrician I had knew what was going on.  I miss that man, sadly he passed last month, in his young thirties.  What a wonderful man, seems like a loss, and it certainly is to his family.  I've always tried to not be selfish about death, saying it was someone's time, and not a loss, but to some people, that doesn't matter.

My son is, though, ambitious in hyper activity, and he is aggressive.  But I just take it as spunk, he is my son, after all.

I am not saying they weren't beautiful places, they were, but I didn't find them quite as accommodating to people like me who didn't do the whole "Tourism" thing.

In St Lucia you're better off just fitting in with the locals as they prefer it that way and you can eat, drink and party for a fraction of the price.

I have family that lives on the French side of St. Martin.  We stay with them.  Go to local beaches, etc.  It's more normal than most tourist experiences and they have friends, so it's hard to ascertain how strangers would be treated.  The Dutch side gets cruise ships in and has all these duty free shops, so it's sort of annoying, that, and the casinos has made the island lots less friendly than it once was.  There's an expatriate community there that is well established but some of the older people are dying off so things are changing.

I have family that lives on the French side of St. Martin.  We stay with them.  Go to local beaches, etc.  It's more normal than most tourist experiences and they have friends, so it's hard to ascertain how strangers would be treated.  The Dutch side gets cruise ships in and has all these duty free shops, so it's sort of annoying, that, and the casinos has made the island lots less friendly than it once was.  There's an expatriate community there that is well established but some of the older people are dying off so things are changing.

Tourism is of course essential to the economic survival of most of the islands, as it is either that or back to colonialism.  However, it is not essential that every "tourist" sign up to that and they would do far more for the indigenous community if they plucked up the courage to leave the "all-inclusive" compound and spent some money in the townships.

...and don't call me Shirley.

"Shirley" was actually a male name but I still like to call you it, especially when I've had a few on a Friday night.

There's real resentment against the large cruise lines as they herd their passengers to the duty free shops and casinos instead of to the various small towns with nice little local restaurants and shops around the island.  This gives the passengers a distorted view of the island and it concentrates the tourism income to a few spots.

Sometimes people say (or used to say) that there is "bear" of something when there is a lot of it.  Is it spelt bear or bare?

Also, where does it come from?  I know a lot of the local slang comes from the Caribbean and USA, is this the same?

No clue, never heard of it before.  I have heard of "come to bear" http://www.usingenglish.com/reference/idioms/come+to+bear.html but I don't think it's related to the idiom you're talking about.

I didn't find it here either.

I used to read every day. Had a massive ebook collection, but since I got preggers and had the baby, I have only read baby books. I miss it and hope to get back to it very soon. And working out.

Had a great weekend with the hubby, though it was too short. We watched Paranormal Activity and Paranormal Activity 2. Caught up on some tv shows and had lots of quality time with the baby, since she's been having a 'no putting me down' phase. I don't mind terribly. I like to snuggle.

Title: Re: Last Person to Speak Wins! 第四部曲
Post by: 6pairsofshoes on October 16, 2012, 05:53:55 PM
They had more than secret handshakes.  They were itinerant workers who had to guard trade secrets such as how to triangulate the elevation of a cathedral from its plan.  So they had guilds who seemed secretive to outsiders, but no more so than patent holders do now.

The thing about Portland Cement is that it requires huge amounts of electricity to manufacture it in kilns from burning limestone and it wasn't really practical to make these hydraulic cements in great quantities until the late 19th century.  That was when you started seeing so many bridges, tunnels, roads and sidewalks constructed from it.  Concrete is amazing.  This is an old study of its early history.  That said, I'm spent, tired, will go lie down now to rest up for the debate.  I've had a bad day.  Only managed to get laundry done.  Feel like I'm fighting the flu or some such annoying stuff.

'great' is pronounced differently from eat, meat, heat, feat, beat, etc.

I wish I could remember learning to read, I only remember some words that confused me (for example, I used to get mixed up between plough and plague for some odd reason)

It this for Movember?

I have just had the worst day.

After fitting the new battery to my bike I set off to do a little shopping early (about 9.30am) and all seemed well.  When I came out of Lidl for some reason I could not get my immobiliser to trip out.  In fact, upon further investigation I realised that I could not turn the alarm on and off either.  Thinking it must be the battery in the alarm fob I walked about 3 miles (1.5 there and the same back) to a Halfords for a new little battery. They did not sell it (wha?) and directed me to a Boots chemist that happened to be 50 feet from where my bike was parked and where I had set off from.  Of course Boots didn't have it either and suggested Jessops the camera people who were about half a mile away. Yet another walk and yet another failure later, I decided that Maplins must have one so went there and sure enough they stocked the A11 type.

Back to the bike and guess what, it wasn't the battery in the fob, it was something else. 

By this time the food in my backpack was beginning to thaw so I walked home laden with all the stuff I'd bought (about 1.5 miles), dumped it off and grabbed the spare fob and walked back to the bike.  You guessed it, that didn't work either.

Then I remembered a bike mechanics about 500 yards away so set off there pushing the bike.  I parked it by the workshop and a nice fella who worked there stopped what he was doing and tried to help. He said though that they didn't deal with alarm wiring so the best he could do it test the fuses and clean up the contacts.

Then the police arrived.  Someone had seen me pushing the bike and had phoned them.  They had the savvy to check the bike shop a few metres from where the bike had been reported being pushed and we cleared it all up in five minutes thank heavens, as I was becoming a little frazzled and it could have all gone wrong if they been too heavy handed with me.

No joy on the bike though and by this time the alarm had been triggered and we could not turn it off.  By some miracle all this messing about had screwed with the immobiliser temporarily and we got it to start which in turn stopped the alarm.  He suggested I get it home and call out someone who specialises in bike alarms, so I limped it home quickly.

After getting off the bike the alarm went bonkers again so I had to take a fuse out and came upstairs to start-a Googling, only to realise that I had lost my glasses probably when pushing the bike.

No joy on the intarwebz either other than dozen bikers with a similar problem with these Spyball alarms. I did read in my emergency booklet though that the fob and the alarm can become de-synced and here was a brief procedure that reset them.

I tried that and bingo, it worked!

Total cost = 1 lost pair of glasses and one lost day.

Sorry to hear that smokes.

My sis and I once had to walk her scooter home after it failed on a dark highway.  It was kinda scary because there is nothing but haciendas on both sides of the road.  A tricycle full of guys stopped to help but I waved them away.  I didn't feel any safer with them around.  We thought of phoning for help but we both didn't bring our cellphones.  I was so paranoid I actually gave her instructions to save herself and take care of the kids if anything happened.  Thankfully, we both got home in one piece.

No, here in this country, they like to leave children with croup to recover naturally. Personally I'd prefer some help but they are fairly dismissive until it gets too severe (like when my son nearly died from it).

She's currently quite happy playing Plants vs Zombies.

I know they help but then nebulizations with budesonide also help a lot.

Budesonide in comparison with prednisolone has been associated with fewer bone density losses, and, unlike other corticosteroids, has little influence on the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, which also limits the need of tapering before discontinuation. Overall, it has a lower incidence of systemic manifestations than similar medications.

I am very excited about the new baby and I cannot wait to see her. However, I s'pose I should let the mother recover a little and get out of hospital first.

Shouldn't be long though, I mean, just how hard can it be giving birth?

Post by: subvinorosa on December 11, 2012, 09:11:59 AM
I was in the shower when my older son started crying.  He was having an asthma attack and I knew something was terribly, terribly wrong if he was crying. We were going to rush him to the district hospital until I saw his nails.  They were already turning blue.  Instead of going to the hospital, I rushed him to the city emergency clinic instead.  The bottom of a doctor didn't even do any assessment; he just asked if we'd been there before.  When we said yes, he told me to just start nebulisation and had one of the nurses give my kid oxygen.  I told him that it hadn't been two hours yet since the last dose and he was really casual about it and said that it could even be done every fifteen minutes.  While that is true, it is not advised to do so without a doctor's orders or assessment because the meds will cause tachycardia.  This indifference is what makes me willing to pay my kids' pulmo the equivalent of a day's pay for a simple check up.  Not only does the kids' doctor genuinely care for their well being, she also doesn't treat me like a stupid, ignorant ass. 
 
I mentally flipped the bird at him and started my kid's nebulisation.  I had to repeat it in another hour and half because my kid was having trouble breathing again.  The doctor basically continued to ignore us and honestly, I was pissed.  I just waited until my kid was relatively stable and then I brought him to the hospital in the city which is at the least and hour and half away.  After about an hour, my kid was gasping again. 

We stopped at a gas station convenience store and I asked if we could just plug in the nebulizer because my kid wasn't going to make it to the hospital.  The hospital was still fifteen, maybe twenty minutes away and my kid was already turning blue again.  While it is against store policy to let non staff members into the office, the lady at the store didn't even hesitate.  She immediately opened the office and told me to bring my kid in.

We finally got my kid to the hospital; four hours were spent at the ER trying to get him to stabilize.  If he hadn't responded, he would have been sent to the ICU.  If that kind lady hadn't allowed us to plug in the nebulizer, he would have most likely been comatose upon arrival.

May the Lord God bless the kindness of strangers.

Damn Sub', what a truly awful event.  I pray that your son is ok and that his asthma becomes less severe as he gets older.  I've a good mind to send that women in the gas station a Christmas card you know.

My mother, who didn't develop asthma until she was over 50, overdid it somewhat with her inhalers and ended up with arrhythmia/tachycardia.  She has had to have several ablations and a host of meds since that are still ongoing, and all because no one told her that high doses of anticholinergics can lead to that,

Post by: xtopave on December 11, 2012, 08:52:09 PM
poo, subv! I used to have asthma attacks when I was a child. Even when they were somewhat mild since they never needed hospitalization I remember those nights as distressing and anguishing so I can only imaging how bad your kid must have felt. I have a 5 yrs. old niece that was hospitalized 3 times due to asthma attacks. Just remembering her hissing and labored breathing gives me goosebumps.
I hope your son's feeling better now.

Post by: subvinorosa on December 12, 2012, 09:47:50 AM
Thank you all.  My kids are feeling better now.  Yep, while the older one was in the hospital, the younger one started having attacks as well.  Both have recovered now and luckily, the younger one didn't need any hospitalization.  They both react like crazy to the weather.  It's their trigger.

In other news, I tried on a dress I was thinking of wearing to the office Christmas party.  I asked the kids "Does this dress make me look fat?"  The younger one took a look at me and very promptly replied with a yes.  The older one studied me and said "Not really, Mommy.  I don't think so."  After a couple of minutes, he declared "Mommy, I have to be honest.  It kinda does make you look fat."  I glare at him and he says "What?  You told me not to lie!"

I've got to go bake cookies, so I'll go haul the cutters out of the garage and mix up the dough so it can chill.  Baking cookies is great, but rolling them out and cutting the shapes is exhausting.  Oh well, they won't make themselves...

I checked Wiki and it usually did contain meat, historically.  I think the ones I had were prepared little tartlettes from Marks & Spencer or some place like that.  I think you can buy some here from Cross & Blackwell, but it looks not so great.

Incidentally, I was looking at the members list and saw phillybookwoman.  Has anyone heard from her lately?  I thought she was ill and I was wondering how she is doing.

M&S food can bring one to their knees, if for no other reason than the bill at the checkout.  Seriously though: their food is scrumptious.

Oh, and that's it.  I basically bought it to talk to a friend on ps3 network, and play Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City.  That friend is ignoring me now too.

That's even cheaper in sterling..

I'd meant to pick that up a while back as it is meant to be very playable.  I'm not really into futuristic set ups though and prefer swords, bows and the like.

Perhaps I should get with the program.

Smoke, Mass Effect is one of the most fun times I've ever had in an RPG, and the second is regarded as a classic. Third one is supposed to be great until you hit the ending. But the third one isn't available on steam because EA are fuckheads.

I was in London for a course one summer and the regular tube strikes seriously affected our ability to keep appointments and make scheduled visits to sites.  Oddly enough, the strikes were limited to one day per week, but they alternated with bus strikes so it really put a damper on things.

It's expensive to reside in London but actually quite cheap to eat and drink (indoors that is).  While I was in St Lucia I was paying around 3 to 4 x the amount on items I buy here, and there the average wage is about a 3rd of what it is in most of the U.K.  How that works for the locals over there is bewildering.

I know she's from Hong Kong, but I thought she was schooling in England (and I gather such a situation makes it difficult to get home for every holiday).

BTW, it's now 2:22PM here (EST).

I'd love to see some pics (no hurry though). It's kind like I know the place by now.  :)

It's pink!  Not my choice of colours but all in all it works quite well.

Antonio had a baby girl on the 7th so he didn't go back to Italy this year and he's seen it and thinks it's ok, but the owner (Lucio) is in Sicily and I have a feeling he didn't realise how pink Dulux Sumatran melody 5 can be when on a wall and not on a colour chart.

I'm not repainting it in a hurry that's for sure.

I know she's from Hong Kong, but I thought she was schooling in England (and I gather such a situation makes it difficult to get home for every holiday).

FI did a stint at the London School of Economics but it was only for a month or so as I recall.

While you own the lease you can paint it pretty much what you want on the inside, and modify the layout (the council do so little they're probably thankful).

I have to go there now so I'll judge the reaction of the regular customers.

I made my first Ebay purchase from the States today and got a new pair of Girbaud jeans for £14 believe it or not.  I had to pay £12 shipping but this is still probably £60 cheaper overall than if I'd bought a secondhand pair from Europe.

I am very excited... and the jeans are a bit of a thrill too.

I mailed the seller beforehand and asked if they'd had any problems in the past and the woman there said they ship to the U.K  all the time and haven't had any issues so far.  We'll have to see but as I paid so little and those kind of jeans are hard to value outside a fashion house, that if I had to take a hit, I'd swallow it.

I've gotten some odd stuff from Europe on eBay, mostly ink cartridges for my fountain pen, but at a significant savings over what I'd have to pay for them in the States.  No customs involved, and the same for tea I bought from England.  I shudder to think what I'd be charged for tea if the customs people got involved.

Still, one Christmas, a friend's mother made her a coat w/Harris tweed, mailed it to her from Scotland, and she got charged a hefty duty on it by U.S. customs.  It seems a fickle agency and luck probably has a lot to do with it.

Alcohol, applied topically, can create a cooling sensation on the skin due to its rapid evaporation, but if you have rum, I'd drink it and use some nice warm oil for that massage.  It's less likely to dry out your skin.  There are cheaper forms of alcohol for rubbing (isopropyl is readily available at a low cost from the chemist's).

I think binkles was glad that the games from 'noid had settled here generally speaking, and that left over there for more serious stuff which he seemed to embrace.  He used to pop in every now and then but may have forgotten we are here it's been so long.

Bea I had no idea you were moving! Hope it went well!

Looking at wedding shoes online. Depressed. I like nothing. I must have no sense of fashion... Question: would you want to go to a destination wedding? In Antigua? Please explain.
Title: Re: Last Person to Speak Wins! 第四部曲
Post by: 6pairsofshoes on January 26, 2013, 01:13:31 AM
I think I'd rather save my money and go to a wedding in town, then go on vacation.  You can have just as much fun closer to home. 

Shoe shopping for wedding shoes is tough.  I finally settled on some Stuart Weitzman beige satin pumps.  Still have them.  They look great and are miserably uncomfortable.  But they looked well with my dress.

I have no interest in staying in the area. We did our boring wedding. Now I want to do something exciting. At the very least I want to go back to lake Geneva. Hopefully at a warmer time of year.

And I want colored shoes so its even harder especially with the dyeable shoes... You have to try to imagine them in you color...

I recommend St. Martin.  It's warm there and quite beautiful.  Too expensive?  Hawaii is always nice. 

What color are you contemplating?  I'm assuming this won't be a white wedding, if you need to dye the shoes.

My dress is white under a floral lace kinda thingy. I can post a picture later. I'm trying to go with a pink, purple, green or blue specifically matched to my dress.

W looked at st Martin but the resort in Antigua was cheaper. It's also cheaper than Hawaii. We do wanna go there eventually though.

I think it's a destination wedding if it isn't in your hometown. I could be wrong.

Smokester, would you be saying that it is a good thing to go to a destination as a guest?

Post by: smokester on January 27, 2013, 08:28:21 AM

Smokester, would you be saying that it is a good thing to go to a destination as a guest?

It certainly can be.  Sometimes with block bookings you can get the accommodation cheaper which helps if you're a guest.  You also get to go somewhere that you might not consider for the obligatory family holiday, and you get a license to leave the family at home of they don't know the couple in question.

Thinking about it, I could do with an invite  :)
Title: Re: Last Person to Speak Wins! 第四部曲
Post by: 6pairsofshoes on January 27, 2013, 07:38:29 PM
Antigua is nice.  It's got a substantial British ex-pat community there, reputed to have iron clad livers from the levels of alcohol consumption.

I've always wanted to go, but my relatives live on St. Martin, so that's what I am familiar with--it's not too shabby there, either, but it's pricey.

My joiner/supplier is in Sheffield and he gives my name to all the London enquiries. Today I had a call from a contractor who wanted about 20 windows fitted for the council.

Quote
The key to Žižek’s analysis of the gaze in cinema lies in his use of Lacan’s concept of the antimony between the eye and the gaze described in Lacan’s Seminar XI. Lacan refers to a moment in his childhood when he was on a fishing boat and a fisherman pointed out a sardine can floating in the sea, reflecting the light. ‘Do you see that can?’ the fisherman says, ‘well it can’t see you.’ However Lacan mused that if the fisherman had any meaning at all it was because the can was looking at him anyway. (Lacan 1986: 95) Lacan states that the gaze does not emanate from the eyes of the subject looking, but from the object that is looked upon. This gaze is from a mysterious spot on the object (or image) that seems to be looking back at us, from a point that we can not see. In Lacan’s sardine can episode above this spot is the shining glint of metal out in the sea. By conceiving of the gaze in this way, it becomes instrumentally linked to the real of desire in the subject, as in the desire to be in the position to be gazed upon. As the gaze is outside of the subject, so is the object of its desire. Lacan also called this object ‘das Ding’, the Thing, which is the void which represents the Real (Zupancic 98).

  I've been listening to "classical" music since the year Kubrik's 2001 came out; that amazing sequence with Also Sprach Zarathustra just blew me away and I went out and bought some Strauss... along with some others. I had no idea what I was doing so I also bought some Webern, Messiaen, and Beethoven. And my love of the music went forth from that point.
  One of the great things about where I live is the wealth of free concerts--every Friday there is a noon concert and Sunday afternoon offers a wide selection of music as well. I've seen concerts featuring the likes of William Byrd, Messiaen, Carter, etc. Last Sunday I went to a concert of Beehoven's Piano Sonata's No. 28 & 30 as played by a brilliant faculty member named Hao Huang. I will use a word which I use sparingly. The program was awesome! It's like the first time I listened to this stuff. I'm still reeling and I do not exaggerate.
A woman sitting next me to was texting through most of the concert... Huh?

I once attended a concert of Ustad Ali Akbar Khan who is a master of the sarod.  I had to grade bluebooks because I was up against a deadline.  Sat through the entire concert working, but I enjoyed it just the same and didn't disturb my neighbors.  I can't speak to the texter.  Sounds more like an addict.

She'd removed herself from direct contact with the numinous. Her loss. Totally.


I went up to the village this morning (that's the rather quaint name my town goes by) and was told by a woman that I was "beautiful." I think she was schizophrenic but she was so sweet I thanked her for the complement.

I'm watching "Fried Chicken Shop: Life in a Day" on Channel 4, and it's focused on a chicken outlet just down the road from me.  What's interesting is there's some folk on there I see all the time that I thought were a little odd (being kind there), but in truth they're actually really odd but also very nice now I've seen them at home.

I didn't work for 8 years so I could be with my children.  It was originally meant to be for 4 years until my son went to school, but then my daughter came along so it added another 3 or 4 years until I could do some local work.

The worst thing about it is that I would shrivel up if I had to spend a single night away from them now. I just can't imagine being apart from them for any length of time outside the school routine, and while that seems quite endearing, I'm not sure it's entirely healthy.

I stayed out of work a little over seven months.. And while I do enjoy my time away, I work REALLY hard at my job and the pay doesn't always balance with that. For instance, today I scrubbed the baseboards in the entire store as well as my usual cleaning duties and taking care of customers. My back spasms have been endless all day and my feet feel like giant bruises. Doesn't seem like it's worth the very modest wage I make.

autumn, it seems that your hard work is being recognized if you are being recommended for a promotion?  hopefully, you will see some increased compensation as a result, but then that little daughter of yours is pretty beguiling and I can understand why you'd be conflicted.

Tomorrow is the contractors start the job of overhauling out bathroom and toilet.  The rooms aren't very big so there isn't much decorating for them to do, but I have scheduled all my work the week after next.  That should give them 7 days to complete the job (I have to be in the building when they work according to my association's guidelines), but they might get a bit of a shock when they realise I myself am a tradesman, as there will be no cutting corners or shoddy workmanship accepted.

I live in an association property (social housing) so they contract the work and workforce.  It's good because the renovations are free, but you have to be on site which can result in a loss of earnings (in my case) and a lot of very serious tea drinking and chatting.  I think I know the shoe size of everyone who has been here over the last 6 days.

That reminds me of that lion that escaped the zoo and they couldn't find it for a long time. But one day it's caught and brought back to the zoo. The other lions noticed it was in very good shape and healthy.
"How did you manage to not only survive but thrive in the middle of the city for so long?"
"I hid in a Government Office. I started eating people and nobody seemed to notice."
"What went wrong then? How did they catch you?"

I just had one a couple hours ago.  They are yeasted buns with cinnamon, currants, candied citrus peel, and a cross out of frosting.  Tasty, sure, but not to set the world on fire.  There are more evil and delicious pastries out there.  Still, they're a nice treat once a year.

Bea, demonoid.mk is a search engine that has appropriated the logo and name of the former site but has no real resemblance to the former site, no trackers, nada.

My son has worked with me since he was old enough to hold a screwdriver, but lately, he really earns me a lot of money and he's only 10.  I feel like I'm exploiting him only paying him £15 a day (used to be £10), but I can't be too generous due to his age.  When he's older I'll pay him £50 a day and when he's at university I'll pay him £100pd.

When he's rich... well, you can all visit me in the Caribbean.

BTW:  I feel good!!

Good to know.  As I am sure you may have thought of, I didn't know much about her.  I prefer old people who are capable of self sustaining for as long as they can to keep living, to live.  I have this problem with trusting in humanity.  I think when they get old enough, with enough experience, anyone could see errors in their choices, and I can relate. 
Not that I ever lead an administration..

She was not loved at all by those of us down at the bottom, and loved even less by the miners.

I'm thankful for my friendship with XT as there is little hope of any kind of amicable relationship between Britain and Argentina, due to her poll boosting maneuver that was the Falklands Conflict.

My former flatmate had someone in the armed services on the island at the time (friend or relative, I can't quite remember) and he'd said there was some kind of argument between a fishing vessel and the crew of a helicopter that got out of hand (a mini Marco Polo Bridge Incident sort of thing) and it escalated from there.  I rubbished it at the time but then heard it again from someone else in the armed services some time later, and I am more inclined to believe it these days.

How in the world did that happen? I assume you weren't being transported illegally to Mexico...

Had a fight with a friend last night. We fought about my relationship with my husband.

I don't mean to get involved in a touchy subject but since you posted this publicly I'm guessing you are open to advice...
Obviously, we here don't know what the argument was about but whether your friend's comment was for or against your relationship, perhaps you should slow down and consider what could have been intended as concern on his/her part. Much of the time when people react aggressively to words it's because the content resonates psychologically. In other words, your affronted reaction may stem from the realization that there could be some truth to what was said and manifested as angry denial.

I have aches on top of aches and I honestly feel that it's due to our prolonged winter.  My body will take a couple of months of cold and not complain, but when it got to 3 it started to get irritable. At 4 it started to rebel and at 5 months of freezing temperature, it just gave up.  Apparently tomorrow it will be warm so I have promised it a day out.

It's a curious thing, bottles.  Whether we use them to drink water or something stronger, they have an elemental connection with the breast and provide sustenance as well as comfort.  The psychological aspect of drinking from one is infinitely more satisfying than from a glass.  I never could enjoy a beer poured from a bottle as much as one quaffed directly from it.  Maybe it messed with the carbonation.  Who knows?

Wine's another matter.  Drinking wine from the bottle seems decadent.  Maybe it's because the wine can't get enough proper oxygen to maximize the flavor drinking it that way.  It's sort of an act of disrespect for the vintner, I think.  That is, unless you are drinking MD2020 or whatever passes for rotgut these days.

I don't feel that way at all. I prefer drinking beer (or anything else for that matter) from a glass. Must be a cultural thing. Hardly anybody drink beer from a bottle in my country.

I think it is a cultural thing.  I assume you are talking about beer that comes from a tap rather than a bottle?  In that case, I'd agree with you.  I so rarely drink beer, that this came as a response to other people's comments re:  drinking directly from the bottle.  Mostly, I drink water or seltzer/sparkling water from the bottle.  That is for convenience more than anything else, and usually when I'm on the road, in my car, or otherwise away from home.

Strangely enough, there's a growing movement against bottled water (especially tap/filtered waters like Dasani) in the U.S. for environmental reasons.

I drink bottled beer from a glass and draught beer directly from the tap (sorry, silly joke, couldn't help it  :D).
Seriously, we usually don't drink beer directly from the bottle or the can. Although it's getting more common among young people. Must be that globalization thing everybody talks about.  :)

Although I prefer draught beer, when I'm at home or a restaurant that doesn't offer tap service I drink straight from the bottle. In my experience bottled beer seems to lose a lot of something (flavor, body, I dunno) by pouring it into a glass.

I deliberately chill my bottled beer to near frozen so that it will stay cold right the way to the last sip.  As soon as I pour it into a glass it heats up, although, probably not this year.  Another problem with a glass is that I neck the entire beer in a second or two, which I just can't do sucking it through the hole at the top of the bottle. It is a built in regulator.

That would be a cheep Oliver Red, or Plum wine, usually bought for 10 dollars, and yes, I will drink it from the bottle but only the last few cups of the bottle, I poor the first six or so.

Light can skunk a bear.  That's why Corona's are marketed with a lime.  It masks the skunk some.  Every had a Corona without a lime?  GAH!  That's also why most beers come in a dark-tinted bottle but even with those, some light gets in.

Absolutely. I still cannot understand why anyone sells beer in clear or green bottles. I've tried them and they are almost always skunky when I open them. When I am drinking casually I tend to be more of a stout kinda guy (Cooper's Extra Stout when I can get it), and those always come in brown bottles. When I am drinking heavily I just get cans of Icehouse, b/c who the hell cares what it tastes like when you're just pounding them like there's a prize at the bottom?
But even from a brown bottle, the beer just loses something if I pour it into a glass. Might just be mental.

They did 2 sea bream for me (being a pescatarian and all that) but the rest of the grub was mainly meat.  It was my Italian pal and his Polish wife hosting it, so there was a lot of Polish side-salady things abound, but I didn't get to see much of it with so many there.

Had 1/4 of a orange cheescake when I got home which did the job nicely.

You only drink too much when your body beats your ass the next day. Otherwise it's therapeutic anesthesia.

I couldn't find a bless'ed cake on my birthday, the 3rd. All the places I went had sad, shitty, bent little cakes.

Dad's side of the family, baking was a profession, yet he was a truck driver.

I was thinking portal cake, but if you have to make your own bless'ed cake on your birthday, it isn't worth the effort.

So I did pizza and beer, then mixed an unholy mudslide in the blender. (90 proof)

That's odd, my daughter has only been out not even a week.

The U.K has "half term" holidays but a shorter summer break, unlike most of Europe and the U.S.  This essentially means that kids are only at school about 5-6 weeks after which they get at least a week off. The trade off is they only get 6 weeks at the end of their school year rather than 3 months.

They are now on a half term break which is the 3rd and last term of the academic year.  It's a week long but in all honesty it's only really 4 days as yesterday (Monday) was a bank holiday.

BTW, it poured all day long so you can scratch what I said about the weather..

I posted a link to it in the movie quotes page, but it has quite a few ads scattered through it.

Post by: 8ullfrog on June 07, 2013, 11:53:06 PM
She's doing well. A bit schemeish, but that's how she rolls.

My roommate almost lost the house on us though. I pay him cold hard cash for our rent, but he feels some strange need to pay his with a money order. He mumbles some excuse about them "Holding onto" personal checks. I think it's more assburgers "Routine must be followed" poo. Seriously, when he comes home he has an exact routine, which if not followed, flusters the poo out of him. Big heart though. Definitely have to give him credit there. Post surgery, when her own mother booted her, He stepped up and took mom in.

Back to the story though.

Dickies pockets aren't great to begin with, and I'd like to drop a boot to the nuts to whoever designed them.

He dropped the money order.

yes, big inhale,golly!

A customer of the bank brought it back inside, and the bank called the realty company. The realty company called the house, and said not to worry, so long as he gets the money order to them in the next week.

So yeah, roommate literally dropped the rent. On the ground.

Heard someone say "whatnot" on pier, seriously considered pushing him over the side.

I went to the pier because I heard they were doing a mini-street fair to make up for the fact that we got no fireworks this year (Despite the company saying they would do free fireworks this year.)

Dude was butchering the Johnny Cash, so we went for a walk on the pier. Saw something, wasn't sure if ship or building, so I might take the binocs out next time.

Talking about toasted buns... Last night my parents came to dinner and my dad stepped on dog poo (damned to hell all my f$%&" neighbours!) and spread it all over the living room, kitchen and dinning room floor. Thank God he sit down or he would have dispersed poo all over the house. I mopped the floors and cleaned my dad's shoe and when I came back to the kitchen I realized the buns I was defrosting in the oven were burnt. Geez, nobody smelled the smoke?!!  ::)

If it makes you feel any better: us Brits favour carpets throughout the house so you can imagine the consequence of that happening here.  I take it you have stone floors so dog poo is more of a slipping hazard than anything else.

I used to come home from waitressing and soak my feet.  Don't know if that would still cause problems, but it was relaxing just the same.

Water is good.  If it's too hot and you can't use a heating pad, lying down with a cold compress on your eyes/forehead might help.

I used to have to drive across the US for work related reasons.  I'd make the drive alone in about 4 days.  It was enjoyable in an odd way even though I'd drive about 16 hours each day.  The landscape changes a good deal and it's fun to listen to the radio in different parts of the country.

I think making the drive with a small child would be a very different experience.  Hopefully, she likes riding in the car.

If they piss on the floor, or you don't change the litter once a day.  And what would that be saying about the condition of said toilet??

I had a day off today as my daughter was at the Nickelodeon HQ today doing some market research, and it gave all of us the opportunity to spend some time in Camden together as a family.

It's my birthday tomorrow so most of the time someone or other was nipping off buying something I showed interest in.

I made sure I stayed away from the lingerie stalls.

I am awaiting a delivery for my job which I shall take in and then call it a day.  I was hoping to be free already but no such luck.

I think I'll postpone being ancient until next year.

There was an episode of Deep Space 9 in which Julian Bashir turns 30.  At the end of the episode, he decides it's not so bad.

Only 2 minutes after I brought the washing in, it started raining hard.  Oh, it's thunder!

Some grammarians consider "than" a preposition in that context. Prepositions require the objective case, hence "me"

Fords are usually low places in a river or stream where you can drive carts or livestock across without needing a ferry or a bridge.

I don't know what to make of the Ford Festiva which has been revived, despite being an utter piece of crap car.
