Re: Vote or Die

The Senate complaints in their best form make one very accurate and good point: performing well in the Senate does not represent any sort of popular mandate. Trump keeps saying things like an overwhelming majority of voters supported him. This is false. He is going to say that the Republican Senate...

Re: Home $weet Home

I'm pretty much orthogonal to all you guys, I think. We have a breakfast nook adjacent to the kitchen (with a bay even), and a small table in it. We have a separate dining room on the other side of the kitchen with a normal door opening, but it's then got an archway to the living room. We have a 10...

Grubhub and Pizzashanty.gov both have apps now, so all your cooking can be done from anywhere in the house now.
Why don't you just live in a barn?

Re: #noshame

My favorite part of canvassing or lit dropping the weekend after Halloween is eating the occasional piece of candy I find on someone's driveway. Well hello stranger. Where have you been? He's been eating driveway candy. Can't you read? :P Indeed, I have been. Some kid on Greenleaf Avenue in Parma H...

Re: Home $weet Home

I have seen dust covers over furniture dining rooms. I have seen cat playground dining rooms. I’ve seen most often laundry accumulation dining rooms.

Re: Home $weet Home

so now they do have the TV on while at the dining table at dinner Oh god. Like their dining room is a saloon? I'm not a fan of eating in the living-room in front of the TV. Mostly on account of a 'No food in the living room' rule to keep the house from becoming a shitpit. I have done it, and will a...

Re: Home $weet Home

The isolated dining room is the most worthless trash space in any floor plan. I don’t think I have ever in my adult life seen one actually being used. Are you serious? That's absurd. Don't you ever get invited into other people's homes? While I've seen formal dining rooms that are only used on "spe...

*What is it with people and huge master bedrooms? Oh my god, don't even get me STARTED. I'm not saying every master bedroom should be the size of a postage stamp. But they keep building/renovating them to be bigger and bigger just to try to look like more of a feature. And a bed is only so big and ...

Re: Home $weet Home

Also, it just seems like a tiny house is that much less stuff to clean. I mean, if you can stand in one spot and touch every surface, how hard could the cleaning be? Pretty much impossible. There's no room to take off your shoes, the seven square inches of floor gets trampled on endlessly, everythi...

This is the best news I have seen so far: Florida Amendment 4 has passed , restoring voting rights for felons who have completed their sentences. YESSSSSSSSSSSS I'd have voted for it.

What breasts have going for them is a lack of bones and the ability to blend into any dish.
Bingo. Chicken white meat's lack of flavor is a feature not a bug. You're not going to make Cordon Bleu, Chicken Parmesan, or Chicken Marsala with drumsticks.

David would go to bed at 6am every day if he could. Second-shift work and a gaggle of children have ruined his life. :lol:
Second shift should fit him. He gets home around midnight and has a few hours to unwind before hitting the sack.
The children are sleep depriving ninjas of course.

You live a strange life, Jadagul.
If I am truly untethered from the clock, I wind up going to bed around 3-4 am. As things are, I still need to keep more standard hours for the sake of keeping in sync with the SO.
