    What was the last time you had your "mind blown"?

    I am sooooo sorry!!!! Feel better soon. <3 The latest mind boggle that doesn't involve my work life or my insane family is that badgers are living in the southeastern US. I had no clue. We saw one on our way to a junk store and it was just hanging out on the side of the highway doing badger stuff. I obviously suck as a glamorous naturalist.

    BIRDS (and how to look at them)

    I'm thinking it's a summer tanager that is molting...I keep looking for it again, but haven't seen him yet.

    BIRDS (and how to look at them)

    Trying to identify a solid yellow bird in my area. It's not a warbler, it's not a goldfinch..am thinking it's some sort of canary that is traveling through here?

    Generations - Not a Thing

    And it seems like it's getting harder and harder to find people who can actually have a conversation without constantly analyzing their phone for signs of life. I know I'm getting older, but it seems like more and more people (all ages!) are less interested in learning about other people/experiences and making connections, and more interested in espousing their various opinions. It makes me sad, and when I do meet someone who is still courteous, kind, and interested in other people, it's such a gift. I know there are lots of people like y'all still out there, but there are times when I really notice how different society is from even 20 years ago. Or maybe I'm just getting old.

    Why do those "smart speaker" thingies exist?

    I know people who own Alexa and love it, and I also know people who own it and turn it off because they don't want it (HER?) spying on them. I would think it's fairly easy to just not buy it if you don't want it, and if you do, that's awesome too. Live and let live, man. Am a little surprised that the whole ebook argument is still going on. I adore my kindle. I travel a good bit, and it's the best thing ever. I also have limited mobility in my right arm at times. My kindle is a godsend. I also read from 'real' books, because I'm just flexible like that. This thread reminds me of the Great Apple wars, fought by people who think all Apple products suck, and people who think Apple is the best thing since the invention of the wheel. If you want an Alexa go for it. I spend money on all kinds of things that other folks think is stupid. I'm not going to get all judgy about something like Alexa or Invecta or Siri.

    Who are you to Facebook? And did you get a letter from FB?

    I deactivated my FB account. It had gotten too creepy for me, honestly. I miss my Westeros peeps and some other folks, but it's actually a nice feeling not having the pull of the screen. I wasted too much time on there, and it's time I just don't have these days. I'm going to try and get on here more just to see what you guys are doing. Y'all are pretty fascinating.
  7. Awwwww....I just saw this. Right back atcha, Larry. <3 I am a poor correspondent these days. I deactivated FB thanks to hackers, and am not on here very much. My work is nuts right now. But Westeros people continue to be my favorite people in the universe, and I think about y'all ALL THE TIME. I cannot wait to see everyone in San Jose!

    I have the Full Panic and Obsessed! They are both GORGEOUS.

    Makeup VI : SPFantastic

    I have the two loudest Pat M colors, and they really do last forever, but I feel like if I'm not very careful with application, I look like my mouth has shifted on my face. I could paint a whole mouth on my cheek and with those lipsticks, it would look REAL. Very strange. I'm not going to airbrush my face off, and yeah...I'm like kair. My sensitive skin would probably burn off if I used something like that. I was just very intrigued by how orange and blurry everyone looked in the infomercial.

    Makeup VI : SPFantastic

    I recently found myself watching an infomercial for airbrushed foundation at 4 in the morning. And yes, the women looked strangely blurred....and yes, their color was weird. But I was transfixed. I'm not going to buy it, but man, I wanted to airbrush my face off.

    BIRDS (and how to look at them)

    I like birds quite a lot, and am a passable amateur birder. I wish I could shape-shift into a shoebill stork and bite the heads off my enemies. I also really love owls. I think I would make an awesome great horned owl. I would just rip the scalps off all the people who annoy me in meetings. (Can you tell the kind of day I'm having??)

    Dating: to play the part of the one who doesn't wait

    Yep...there's no possible way you can warn this girl. I would be nice to her and remove yourself as much as possible other than professionally.

    Dating: to play the part of the one who doesn't wait

    Had to come back to say that I love this - TP's description of his marriage is a great example of supportive, respectful, functional, all while allowing for needed space and independence. I don't ever want to feel smothered. I also don't want to feel disrespected or used.

    Dating: to play the part of the one who doesn't wait

    Kelli is batting 1000 in this thread. Dang. Min, I love you and am so glad you're back. I'm seldom on here either, but do drop in sporadically. This guy...he's a bad guy. He's a user and a taker. You deserve better than this. And I absolutely adore everything Kelli said, but the last post...spot on. You can have functional and not feel smothered. It's awesome when you find it and until you do, you shouldn't be settling for some crappy user who is charming but totally sketchy.

    Well-Fitting Foundation Garments

    Truly, the only good thing that came of a double mastectomy was being able to ditch the ##$#@!#@$# bra. It's been 7 years and I still revel in the freedom of going braless. It's AWESOME. Having said that, I'm extremely picky about undergarments and socks. I'm also a fan of bamboo silk, and I recently gave the Bombas socks a try. If you listen to podcasts, you've heard them advertise, most likely. They are truly worth every penny. My dog has a thing for socks, and I keep a few cheap, matchless socks in the laundry at all times and conveniently drop them so he thinks he's getting away with something. I caught him stealing some of my Bombas socks out of the laundry basket when I was folding clothes, and I could tell he was so confused by why he couldn't have them. But he can't. They're mine and I'm not sharing them.
