Re: Music for the Masses

one of those record washing kits One of those what now? All I had was a kind of lint brush shaped like a powder puff. I had and still have that, too. What I got recently was this . Those were a thing back in the day as well, though I could never afford one. Seems to be a massive price disparity not...

Re: How's the weather? v. 1.1

It's cold! And fuckin gnarled out there. Snow event preceded by freezing drizzle that glazed everything in black ice. Went out last night to see what was what, and the driveway was damp but not glazed. Then I got a few feet further down and oh shot no I was wrong! Our driveway is steep enough that ...

Re: Home $weet Home

The control for one of the range elements broke so I ordered the part, watched the appropriate DYI video and have now spent over an hour trying to get two tiny Philips head screws out. They are set in an odd angle under the control panel cover and it's so far impossible to get sufficient purchase. ...

Kroger's one of the more expensive chains for most items
Really? In places I've lived, Kroger is budget groceries. There's cheaper to be found, but only poverty would drive one to accept the reduction in quality.

Chicken section was gutted; all they had left for chicken parts were some giant-size family packs, and a couple of very expensive organic fair-trade free-range eco-friendly dolphin-safe etc. etc. options. Why you no get the giant family pack and freeze what you don't cook tonight? Pick up a box of ...

Re: Private Money!

But if one day your BTC is worth millions, why spend it then, when you could wait and it could be worth billions? Oh I won't. I'll only take several hundred thousand off the table. That's what's got me this far. I might have cashed out when I doubled my money, or when I increased it by an order of ...

Four minutes into Godless and we get a lingering shot of a murdered child's body. Again, Jesus Christ, Netflix. Disgust m...

Sterilite is the market. I've got four larger sets of drawers I've been using for years. They're out in the garage now. Could probably use some re-organizing. They were on casters but the moving guys broke one a couple moves ago. And like you can't have just three casters because the drawers tip eve...

Re: Petty annoyances

there are three or four hydrants along a mile or two stretch, and every hydrant is shooting water out of every hole, badly flooding that road. WHY??? Dunno. I'm going to guess it has something do do with my current lack of water, but cannot be certain. I mean, I'd probably make a couple phone calls...

At the same time, I have some reasonable suspicions about why she got (appropriately!) merciful treatment when others wouldn't...
