The BEST and/or WORST part of your week
« on: October 10, 2022, 10:36:20 pm »
BEST: for the first time ever, i awoke with purring in BOTH ears simultaneously, a cat on each side. I guess it was inevitable, as they like to sleep at the head of the bed, and each purrs from time to time, but the eclipse, the synchronicity, the duality, was a new experience.

WORST: the youtube algorithm popped up David Letterman's tribute to Robin Williams from 8 friggin' years ago, and i felt compelled to rewatch it all these years later. (If that was the worst, i guess it was a good week)
Life's to live! Live! Breathe. Relax. Enjoy. Animals teach us to focus on family, friends and avoid danger. Get what you need and get along with others. That said, some rock the boat, but they know capsizin' it means they're sunk. Some sink, let's swim! The sea's big, great, but has undercurrents.

    Finished the very last part of  a 6 month board game campaign (Betrayal: Legacy) with 4 of my (geographically) closest friends last Sunday.
It was an amazing finale, and just *barely* beat it. I happened to be the traitor this last session (it's a different player nearly every session), and felt very conflicted: do I either A: try my best to destroy the others and win the chapter, but tank the entire campaign or B: do I let a things slide and sabotage myself so that our combined efforts for the last half year will result in a win?

I decided to stay true to form and try my very hardest to ruin everything, and got sooooooooo close!!!  :evil:

Great game, btw, would recommend it!

Also had a *killer* Thanksgiving Day party yesterday evening!


On the flip side, we're done with long weekends for a while now, and I feel like I need another couple days off.  :sad:

Depending on things, a toaster oven and a splash of salt can work wonders.

Billy, just slice them up, toss in olive oil, and throw them in a smoking pan with a few sliced veges and some salt. probably not what you want though if it's the air fryer you are cooking in. Tastes great though!

The first gulp of cold brew from my cold brew machine.  (Even in winter I am drinking ice coffee unless it's minus 10 degree or more in the morning.  Ha ha.)
745sticky, Augustiner, Bakeacake, D.L.Orean, Lazio, Mithras, Renma, Rye are still blocked and I can't see them.

So far this week...

Best: eating a big bowl of salty home cooked pork bones with freshly baked white bread and butter.

Worst: catching some virus that makes my head hurt, nose run, body ache, and sets the nerve endings on fire. Kids
             can teach themselves.

Edit: What did you say Marti???? Please translate into Maori  ;D

I'm not sure if youre looking for advice, but if it's bothering you, I'd recommend stopping by a pharmacy and getting some antibiotic creams, a mild topical antiseptic, some gauze, and some bandage wraps.
  With burns and scaldings, it's best to go a bit overkill: you'd be surprised at the scars even minor burns can leave you with. I wish more had been done about mine because they still show up pretty clearly decades later. :sad:

Best: speedy  conversion of Halloween themed Scene-it lesson to a nearly identical but non-Halloween Scene-it lesson was a big success despite no promised costume party.

Worst (so far): couldn't walk around my schools in my costume.  :cry:
