    someone I work with sent me an old school Aussie stock whip for christmas

    !

    A message?

    Dana

    Perhaps an invitation?

    um iz certainly open to an interpretation or three, there has been a big crunch about working into overtime (don't!) the past two or three years but there have been big crunches before and never needed to pull out a whip...

    We're supposed to hit 42 today.  Right now is 23, Real-Feel 17.  The rest of the week we should remain above freezing, with no precip.

     

    blowing hot and cold for Christmas here, right now we caught the edge of a monsoon, the sun iz hiding behind a damp grey blanket 7 the temp dropped 30 degrees :)

    Those 30 degrees drops sure are fun, aren't they? wink

    Don't mind so long as I got a jacket but there seems to be more than usual optimism over temperatures in the weather forecasts lately, the latest is 110 on Christmas day, goung to take a jacket anyhow and we'll see how that all turns out :)

    Morning. South wind blowing cold as a frozen prawn when the weather forecast is for hot hot hot, feeling like a mittens and sunglasses kinda day so far :)

    Here, Friday morning was 10F.  Yesterday it got to 58F!  Today it's in the middle somewhere...28F.   indecision 

    Dana

    having a very wet start to summer here, wet for us anyhow, iz unusual to see everything so green this time of year :)

    Enjoy it while it lasts!

    Dana

    only a couple of hot days standing between us and wildfires when it gets as green as it is now, hopefully the monssons will dump a bit of rain about at the right time :)

    ...was a true "dark and stormy night" last night, wind was rattling the windows and rain was coming down hard. Today, 50 blue °sky and that big glowy thing is out again.

    110° on Christmas?  Ouch. It's going to be about 1/3 that where I am with the possibility of snow back in the forecast on Saturday.

  • I want my game to play muted so it will not disturb my roommate or the fish but the game keeps forgetting that I muted it when I log in.   Actually neither the roommate or the fish complained about the game's music or sound FX.   Actually the fish do not complain other than when they want to be fed.

    Okay...I'm...ready...for...class.

    ...sloths are cool

    Especially in Zootopia!

    Why they call it Zootropolis here?

    Where is "here"?  Book and movie titles are sometimes changed to match the language or culture of different areas.  "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" was changed to "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" in the US because it was felt that Americans were too unsophisticated to know the history behind the Medieval search for the "Philosopher's Stone", and that they could deal with fantasy better than history.

    England. Some changes are reasonably obvious: "The Avengers" was a UK TV show, so the movie became "Avengers Assemble". "Neighbors" -> "Neighbours", again a TV show, so -> "Bad Neighbours". And of course "Free Willy" *should* have been changed to something less rude! But I can't fathom Zootopia/Zootropolis . . .

    do you think a dragon has longer legs than torso? or longer torso than legs?

    i mean, realistically

    In which reality?

  • I just found out I purchased Out of Touch's Olly and Dolly from Renderosity months ago.   Good thing that Rendo has a way to prevent people from buying stuff over and over again.

    Realistically, dragons are a lot more stubby than you'd think. And much, migh lighter. It's the hollow bones . . .

  • I was sitting at a table and using my tablet and I had a toasted bagel and a little container of cream cheese next to me.   

     

    Now I am sitting at a table with an empty container that had cream cheese and a Starbucks bag that had a bagel in it.  They both disappeared.   

    On other notes I do not feel hungry now for some reason I cannot fathom.

    Those poor shivery rocks.   aww

  • I got a package via UPS today from my Daddy and StepMum.  I opened it up to find three Christmas presents.  I know I have to wait till Sunday to open them but I want to see what I got.   This was a surpise as I thought my Christmas present was my Thanksgiving visit to see them.   Okay today is Wednesday, then there is Thursday, Friday, and Saturday to get though.  That is four sleeps until I can open the gifts.   Oooh I want to be a good girl but why does being a good girl seem so hard?

    ...oh no.  Thought it might have happned to me as well since I got an email receipt from a fitness club but addressed to a different person's name.  Checked my balance to make sure, and everything is OK.

    Me, set foot in a fitness club with my creaky bones and joints?  You have got to be kidding.
