    Now you know where my creativity comes from.

    One quirk is that when I speak with people, I sometimes am a step ahead of their train-of-thought. Not always, of course. And has a tendency to finish their sentence. Probably annoying, so I keep my mouth shut not to embarrass myself, but it's a bit boring.

    Need to get going to work. <*sigh*>

    lol! I just simply create the illusion of intellect by surrounding myself with people stupider than me %-P
    but that fails dismally because they not understanding my logic and reason due to utter their moronicness just think I am a loony!
    (only half joking btw, there are some very intelligent people at my work who are students from overseas who come and g, there is a very high turnover of them as they soon find a better job, then the are the stupid ones, not students, who stay because they could not do another job, but I have been there 29 years so who is fooling whom?)

    At Mensa meetings, people drink beer and tell all the jokes that go over the heads of the people they spend the rest of their time with.

    My favorite Mensa anecdote -- a friend of mine who worked in a really dead-end support group in a large computer company (my wife interviewed there, so I know his description of the group is completely unexaggerated) was told by his boss never to use words longer than 2 syllables -- "there's no such thing as a long word that can't be said better with 2 syllable words." My friend replied, slowly and enunciating every syllable, "that's ridiculous." Naturally, his boss didn't get it.

    I know, as I said, I am getting that too!
    dunno if I need to update Android from 2.2 cannot do it on my tablet (no option under settings/phone) I believe I need to install Samsung Kies on my desktop to do it.
    I do not know what "flavour" my Android even is! edit, it is Froyo which is pretty low down on the menu list!!
    (thought it was icecream sandwich but that is 2.3 the latest is Jelly bean)

    I would have thought this would work on my cruz because is a 2.5.3 But I am search the cruz web site to see if there is a update for my tablet or to see how to resolve parsing errors. I think finger sculpturing would be neat as heck

    try TrueSculpt off Google play, free, like Sculptris but very clutzy with touchscreen and clutzy fingers!
    has 3D fingerpaint too!

    Well, peabrain IS a two syllable word...

    For what it's worth, I work in a so-called 'dead-end job'. Why? Well, I work one week on and one week off. So, I'm getting vacation two weeks each month. More time for me to do things I want to, like rendering stuff. Getting one work-week off means I have three consecutive weeks to anything I want. The downside is that I work 10 hours a night, but I have great co-workers - got lucky there! And since this is the kind of work that are needed, I never worry about loosing my job. Your 29 years working, Wendy, is a testament to your skills and patience. You'd not last that long if you really were a bridge-troll. :):

    It's "if you can't tell it succinctly in a few sentences, it's probably not worth hearing."

    Besides, I think his boss thought he got insulted. Which wasn't the case. <*shrug*>

    On another note, I'm watching "Creating Urban game environments"-tutorials, and it's pretty interesting.

    Ah, but you were smart enough to recognize that ridiculous is more than 2 syllables and try to think of a 2 syllable alternative. Dumb boss never even registered that much.

    Hey, working every other week is a nice deal. This particular group wasn't just dead-end as in "no route to advance", but as in "being dead is more interesting and fulfilling than being here."

    Well, then it definitely pays to be indispensable (is it the right word?).

    As long as you don't drink on the job and sings, "Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of Rum", then you'd fine. And, "You'd catch more flies with honey than vinegar."

    LoL ~ Apparently intellect and being advanced don't necessarily come hand in hand.

    You're in the right place then. Hard to interrupt here. lol

    Don't feel bad. I've been told it's not unusual for those that grasp the gist quickly or are intuitive communicators. For the like-minded, it's the most effective way to hold a conversation. lol :D Some people might prefer being interrupted over limping along in a conversation thrown into first gear. I do. The only time I mind is if they keep completing my sentences and are wrong in the direction I was going - and keep doing it thoughout. LoL I say after the third miss . . . it's time to stop. lol

    (Gee . . . I knew I was interrupted from the machine, but for that long between posts? My internal clock needs a tune up. o.0 )

    My mum's furry friend Oscar is sleeping on the floor. On hardwood floor that is.

    He recently got into something gray. I asked mum if she wanted to give Oscar a bath. She said that she did not want to be scratched up. Oscar still has all of his claws and like most of his kind hate water except to drink it.

    My mum's other furry friend likes to scratch my stepfather's computer chair. The back is well scratched but Misty is not finished.

    okay, I felt a bit peckish so am eating masterfoods horseradish cream straight from the jar.
    as you do :roll:
    clears the sinuses.
    I REALLY want some pickled ginger, I can eat a packet of that on wasabi crackers in no time!!! (maybe a bit of smoked salmon to take the edge off)

    I got a suggestion -- grab True Sculpt (available to Android-based devices) and see if you can make nice objects with it. I just tested it with my tablet, and wow, I can see myself doing stuff with it right before bedtime or while traveling.

    I have a kindle fire which does not have google play built in. There might be a way to put google play on the kindle. But I do not have acres to a computer and I have lost the usb cables for the kindle fire.

    I tried to find it but could not find it. I tried looking for something similar but with no luck.


    I have figured out most Tv seems stupid. I do not like reality Tv. I was forced to watch a reality Tv.
