    Dumb kitten knocked my keyboard off the desk, and I had to replace it.

    The keyboard or the kitten?

    The kitten's fine.

    But I can't type on a kitten.


    Oh, you mean...

    No, wouldn't do any good. Each cat does it, it was just this one's turn.

    First time the keyboard got damaged, though.

    Glad the kitten is OK.

    Yeah, I don't throw kittens through walls anymore... Kidding! Just kidding.


    I have an elderly lady cat named Baby. As near as I can figure, she should be about 14 years young. She was my late Aunt's cat until my Aunt passed away 12 years ago. Baby is still as fun and playful as a kitten. I wish I was aging as gracefully. :)

    That's pretty neat. Mine always get sedentary. But they'll rev up and play, on random occasions. Which is still better than me. :)


    Baby, huh? Small world. After my Mom fell and broke her pelvis, again, she went to an assisted living facility.

    I got her little cat Babie (that's how I spell it, because she's a she. The vet's desk people seem to think that's eccentric). Didn't take her that long to warm up to me - I didn't expect it. She'd always been mistrustful of me (anyone but Mom), even though I was the one that rescued her.

    She'd showed up at my Mom's place, as a tiny starved kitten. Looked like she couldn't have lasted another cold fall night.

    My Mom had fed some neighborhood cats, and here's this dinky emaciated thing growling the others away. They were standing back, looking kind of afraid. Perhaps worried what mayhem that desperation might drive her to. Then she hid under the freezer, out there, in the laundry room. I told Mom, and she told me I'd better grab it. It came out to eat again, a few minutes later. I tried petting it while it ate, and it was so hungry, it forced itself to ignore it (Other than folding her ears back and ducking each time)... so... *yoinks*. Mom cuddled that puffball, and the kitten allowed it. My sister named it "Tuffy", for growling it's way to the food dish. But Mom fell in love and changed it to Baby. (And I changed it to Babie, on paper, once it was clearly a she).

    Come to think of it, I guess I'd be more mistrustful of a giant that kidnapped me, than one who showered love on me.

    not sure what i'm seeing here. http://www.daz3d.com/shop/flexi-girls-poses Holy Smokes, I'm a living freak of nature myself but some of those positions are way beyond anything I could do. Maybe I was only semi-pro?
    would anyone wanna come over and do installs for me? :) - i'm cooking bacon and cornbread for dinner!
    Sure just let me get my 40Gb of stuff done then I'll come right over. Say 2 or 3 months from now?

    Hope the kitten is okay.

    Kitten's fine. It was just making more sleeping room by moving the keyboard to the floor.

    I have dropped my keyboard many times and it still works great.

    That keyboard got knocked off many dozens of times before it gave up. Before this, the worst damage was a chipped corner of the (decorative?) flange.

    The desk sleepers like to stretch out... anything that gets in their way is... in there mind, is something that shouldn't have been there. Whenever a cat climbs, and knocks something down, it'll look down at it with an expression of "serves you right".

    The exception was Crystal, who, after a while, figured out why I'd holler. One day I took her to Mom's, she got up on the mantle, and expertly picked her way between the ceramic brikabrak. And she was consistent about it, any time she got up in one of my clutter zones.

    So, anyway, that's not the only cause of keyboard-crash.

    I have an overweight cat, Bobbie (born with a condition that makes her head bobble when she's interested in what she sees, and also makes her put on weight). I got this used 20" CRT monitor for $20 from Craigslist (high-end and expensive in it's time). It had a roomy top front, and the grill had a gentle slope. She claimed it. Sleep on the grill for warmth, then move to the front part to cool down. The thing lasted a year (hey, 20 bucks, I got my money's worth), and I then I had to settle for a 17".

    She's never got used to the idea that it has a lot less sleeping room. She'll roll over, fall to the floor, and snag the keyboard cord on the way down...

    I think I am a klutz. I drop my electronics quite frequently. Today alone I got a cut on my finger that was preventable and I also knocked over a cart with pots of chili. Definitely a klutz

    I'm a klutz. No food containers that big, but that's because I don't have any that big.

    That was a funny story, by the way, I read it up there. I think they're used to worse, though.

I can't imagine how he'd go about doing that, and actually never thought it possible outside of fanfiction ^_^
    Though a friend and avid player of the game did tell me that he was somewhat of a clown once upon a time. Maybe that's what she meant by that XD (Not Fyre, someone on DA =3 )

    at work I have been told several times that the cutting blades of the tomato slicer are sharp and I should wear those cut resistant gloves while handling the tomato slicer. Even the video I saw on my first day of work at the new Wendy's said that at all times that I am using or cleaning the tomato slicer, that I should wear the cut resistant gloves. those gloves are similar to chainmail. that is what they remind me of when I see them.


    Today I decided not to wear the cut resistant gloves. I cut the tomatoes with no problem. It was not until I went to wash the tomato slicer's blades when the problem came up. I was rinsing it with some soap water and then felt some pain. I dropped the blades into the water and notice my finger was covered in this red liquid. I had to do two things, get the thing with the blades out of the sink without further damage to myself and to deal with my finger. I ended up having to drain the sink so I could take the blades out. I had to do that right away so that no one would stick their hands into the dish sink and get cut by the blades. as it was draining I grabbed some paper towels and put them over the cut on my finger. as soon as I saw the thing with the blades I took that out of the dish sink and rinsed it off. I washed off the body of the tomato slicer and then put it back together.


    After that I wore the cut resistant gloves for the rest of the cutting stuff.


    Another problem today was that I was too slow on getting everything done. I tried rushing myself at the end. I was putting away a bacon pan that was clean. There was a cart with two pots of chili. (Uncooked and cold that were waiting for the beef to be put in it then it would be cooked.) That cart was in the way. I tried to move it but instead I knocked over the cart and chili. I spent the next half hour to an hour cleaning it up. I also got chili all over my pants.


    It was time to leave and I have not had lunch yet. I ordered two things of nuggets, a fry and a free drink to go. I did not want to eat while wearing chili covered pants. After I got my food, I went home and started laundry and then ate my food.


    I hope I did not loose my job.


    ...I used to manage a deli where we fresh sliced everything when a sandwich was ordered.

    Those rotary slicers are not just sharp, they are surgically sharp and need to be so to get those paper thin slices. We never removed the blades to wash in the sink but instead cleaned them on the machine itself (a very tedious and just as dangerous process mind you). One time, like you I was in a hurry as well as also rather tired since I was called in on the day shift to sub for someone who took the day off after running my usual evening shift the night before (on something like 4 hrs sleep). While cleaning of the machine I before the evening staff arrived, hadn't noticed anything amiss until I say drops of blood on the floor around me and on my clothing as well. Didn't feel a thing as the cut was so "precise" (which is why a paper cut hurts like heck for the edge of a sheet may be thin but it is extremely dull). Was rushed to the ER where needless to say a graft and five stitches were were required to set things right again. Fortunately as it happened on the premises during work hours, the company picked up all the bills.

    Didn't get sacked, but quit about a month later due to myself working 60+ hrs a week, often with out a day off for a couple weeks at a time.

    85 days to save up for Christmas. or is it 84 since I am not going shopping on Christmas for presents. I asked my bank to put twenty five dollars every other week into my savings account. I hope that is enough, but not too much.

    Not every week but every other week. It is based on when I get paid. That is assuming I did not get myself fired. The gm did not say i was fired. I would think that she would tell me if I was, I think. I have never fired so I do not know how the managers handle it. I have to call tomorrow to see if I am on the schedule or not.

    The bad part is that's just the Daz3D folder. I'm not even sure how old the oldest file in it is. Six or Seven months easy I'm guessing.

    EDIT: Nope, I have four files sitting here from July 2011. :red:

    complainnnt, the Fantasy Hovel didn't give a separate props folder, it's frikkin all in one pp2
    seriously thinkin about returning it for a refund.
    the 1.99 RH sets gives a folder of zeroed props. for the price tag on the hovel, i'd expect the same courtesy.

    I'd probably get it anyway, since with props/architecture I usually just zero their world coordinates and save them back into the Content Browser. There's no point (for me) to keep them as poser files - especially when no morphs or rig is involved XD
    .
    .
    But yeah... An option to have just the empty interior w/o all the props would be nice. Would it be possible for you to go in, remove them manually, then resave a ... I think it's a .cr2 file...?

    ...anyway, finally saw Brave tonight. What a wonderful story. I actually stopped looking at the CG "eye candy" as I became so wrapped up in the story. Poo Poo it if you must because it is "Disney/Pixar", but IMHO, I think they got this one right.

    This has moved into my top ten all time films (and it's not jut because the heroine is a cute feisty redhead).
