    morning out there.. how you doing today??? johnny wth momma tonight.. site was down earlier and I just went back to sleep straight away.. extra sleep helped a lot.. when sun arises , thinking take ipad that is charged and use GPS software and redrive to medical center next town over and try to remember details of how I got there this time. apts are for next Tuesday the 7th..

    maybe a call to safeway later this morning to see if they open and debate today or tomorrow some????? thinking bluray of movie apocalypse now later today... also think we do scalloped potatoe sand ham chunks with peas for dinner tonight.. should be able to pull that off for us..

    atm sort of ambivalent about it being 2014... aside from now having ot start amassing info and numbers for US tax return is no biggie to me...

    HOpe is a good day and year for you.. later, Jim

    Good morning Jim and all you lovely folks.

    Yesterday was good, had lunch with friends and a short trip to Hobby Lobby. Bought some new yarn for scarves.

    Was a quiet New Year's Eve, except for the neighbors who had exceptionally loud fireworks. Of course I was fast asleep at midnight. Got the bedroom picked up and vacuumed. Need to get the spot remover out I think.

    Planning a quiet day. Hoping to find a livestream of the Rose Parade on the interwebs. Have steak and blackeyed peas and cheesecake for lunch. Going to work on my scarves. Ready to finish the one I'm on and start a new one!

    Hope you find the day peaceful and enjoyable.

    Good morning, everyone!

    Happy New Year! *throws confetti and rattles noisemaker* Yay, 2014!

    Jimk, have a lovely day! I hope you nail down the route to the appts next week. :)
    Texaskitty, glad you had a good day yesterday. At midnight here I picked up Star and kissed her, said "Happy New Year, softie!" and went to bed. Loves my kitty! I hope you can find the Rose Parade. :)
    Gentlelady, delighted to see you this morning. Could l stand with you as we face 2014, if you don't mind the company? :)

    May 2014 bring good health, success, happiness, love, prosperity and peace to all! :arms:

    I went to be at about 9:15 last night. Got some good sleep in, and am going to work on my stuff this morning.

    Goals for today:

    Drink more water!
    Draw map of fantasy world (for real this time! lol)
    Eat balanced meals!

    That's all I can think of right now. Happy New Year!

    Tommy Tom says heyroo!

    Have a great one!

    Morning Jim - we are 12 hours into a 36 hour storm here - only a few inches of snow so far though. Sadly , when it stops snowing the temp is going to drop to below zero (that is -18c or so for our metric thinking friends) with 30 mph winds to make the weekend a true winter experience. Intend to stock up on hot chocolate and search for shows I havent seen yet for the weekend in between freezing and shoveling snow that the winds ensure will need to shovel the same snow multiple times .....

    Ouch Ben. Although we have had some bad storms here, not snow storms but heavy flooding and gale force winds which left a lot of people in the south flooded and without power for days over Christmas. It's not been too bad up in the Midlands, although the winds have been gnarly. But we are due for some more in the next few days.

    Just chilling out on my day off, going to go to Argos later to buy a giant lava lamp lol.

    Good morning, all! :)

    Was up and out before 8 a.m. - recall on the car airbag is now fixed. Star and I plan on a quiet day. It's -18°C here, feeling like -28°C with the wind.

    Jimk, hope you and John have a good run to Safeway, today. :hug:
    Ben, sorry you are getting hit by a major winter storm. Yay hot chocolate! Stay warm and dry! :hug:
    Butterfly, I hope there's no more flooding and winds! Have fun shopping for your lava lamp. :) :hug:

    Wishing everyone a really good day! :arms:

    GooooOOOooOOood Morning Vietnam!
    Got me some bloodwork done this morning, which is always a blast. Feelin' good, trying to ride that for as long as possible before a downswing sets in. Snowin' a little, but we're supposed to get the majority of it tonight and into tomorrow. But it's still FUCKING COLD!

    This is international forum, ExtraSoap. Also imperial system is arbitrary and confusing to do conversions. US needs to get with the times on the goodness of base-10 system. :topsy_turvy:

    Have a good day everybody. :tea:

    Jimk, enjoy Safway, and keep working on quitting those cigarettes. You will be so proud when you succeed.
    Ben, don't you dare fall again while shoveling snow!

    Best thing about yesterday was I didn't get any spam email. They made up for it today though. Gonna go to Buffalo Wild Wings today. Horrible for a person's health, but tasty. Tomorrow is my birthday, and this will be my treat. Boneless wings are 40% off on Thursdays. Always get it to go because its so noisy there.

    I know I really don't want to die, but I so want life to be different. I am very frustrated with trying to make it different. But will continue to try. Too bad you can't die temporarily.

    Die temporarily... I think that describes what I want too. Or hibernate until I feel I have any value again...

    Enjoy your treat today! I hope it makes you feel better.

    Wishing I could go or a walk, but it's too cold.

    Did 300 chess problems yesterday, and got current on the new set of problems today. My rating has went from 1070 to 1273 or so... On par with my endgame knowledge.

    I need to write today. I'll kick that around.

    Really disgusting how dependent I am on this site. I mean I love it and all. Getting to know some really nice people, but missed it so when it was done. I guess I really need a life. :biggrin-new:
