    thanks, ty. i loved that, especially the second video. it seemed there was some reaction. i would have loved to have taken a dog there. I’ll see if there is any reaction from the dog when I play it next.

    Wade, I am not on facebook either. We can see out our self-imposed exile together.

    (((glowo))) for facing up to your Middle School Music Performance duty like the two champs that you are.

    On the MacDonald’s note, in response to Ck, whose comment is correct btw, I want to respond, In Australia, the add-on sale question is: “Flies with that?” Because we have so many of the critters.

    Saw a Bill Hicks documentary tonight. It was interesting. Last night we saw a 1916 print of 20,000 Leagues under the sea with a soundtrack provided live by a guy called Stephen Merritt (Magnetic Fields). Lemony Snickett was one of his musicians. It was good. I like stuff like that. Oh, it’s been raining . . .

    No, a resort on Elkhart Lake, a small town not too far away known for historic car races. Not real camping, but going with the Motorcycle’s friends.

    I had a Middle School concert experience a couple of weeks ago, Wo. Nephew the Elder plays trombone. They held the concert in a greenhouse. It was steamy and pathetic acoustics.

    I have returned from Middle School Concert Hell. It was exactly as you are imagining it only worse.

    Sent the creepy client a very clear message that I am DONE. I’m giving him back his money and walking away. He finally gets it. Now I just wait to see if the site kicks him off.

    Anyway, it’s over. Thank goodness. I’m exhausted from stressing over it. Thank you all for your love during this. I’ve been a mess.

    tinks, I know you have got friends there, but stay in touch, and you are obviously staying safe.

    listening to Laurie Anderson, Only an Expert. Good song. As part of a festival in Sydney yesterday, she performed a concert that only dogs could here. It was free to the public and their dogs. The announcer said that from the pictures he saw that the dogs were having a ball. Maybe they’d be having a ball anyway. I wonder if anyone will ever be able to figure out what they were actually reacting to? Okay, walk 2 for me today.

    As it happens, funnily enough, I do have “a friend” who might benefit from some of your tips and techniques. He’s asked that I not give out his email address to sex advisors because he doesn’t want anyone to think that he is obsessed with sex and stuff.

    Reluctantly, I agreed to be his “conduit.” So, what do you have?

    Skip the basics.

    I, I mean, he has that shit down. Let’s take the chairlift to the top and figure out out to get down once we can see the lay of the land.

Attorneys take too long and cost too much. It’s like waiting on a stoned cat to decide if it wants in or out of the house. (I’ve seen video). Why am I so happy, you ask?

    Question for Glo: If I were to pursue the cloning of my neutered dog, do you know of a place that will guarantee (in writing!) that I won’t wind up with two identical neutered male dogs?

    Under ordinary circumstances, I wouldn’t mind risking it (especially as my dog appears to be somewhat of a hyper-poly-sexual narcissist), but when I consider how much rain Seattle has received of late, I’m afraid I’ve got to stick with the breeders.

    History tells me that the “one M/one F per cabin” method has been tried, tested, and proven. There is no sense whatsoever in trying to reinvent the wheel.* Not now, anyway.

    *(Maybe once we establish a beachhead in a place that is relatively dry, I’ll take a closer look at the wheel and try to figure out all the simple cost-effective ways it can be improved, but not until then.)

    Hi Y’all! Hate to read that not everyone else’s life is looking as sunny as mine is lately.

    I figure summer’s almost here, it’s time to lose a little weight. So yesterday I typed up divorce papers and asked my mister to sign them. He’s still a little shocked, and hasn’t offered to sign yet, but given his actions of late- he really should have seen this coming. Besides… he’s been telling me I should leave him for years. These days, I have the attitude of the old Toyota commercials – you asked for it, you got it. (now sign the damned papers) :-)

    pouncies and hugs to all – I plan on having myself a little party after all the dust settles… time for ‘tink to get her groove back, lol.

    I got my airline reward miles from PANvention! I just got the email and I have another free round trip coming!!! :grin: :grin:
    I am so happy, now I can plot… I mean plan another trip.
    Hmmmm where to go now?

    BTW my phone is jacked up with the usual fuckery so I have not been ignoring anyone. I get some of your messages but not all and I apparently cannot send. Maybe I wore it out on monday? :wink:

    Rose, I’m in Pennsylvania, so the rain must be across the northern part of the continent. Its been nice here, and we actually needed the rain, but it doesn’t make me like it any more. Maybe I would if I were a farmer…

    It is so true. When it is cloudy outside everyone comments on how nice the weather is. Here it is almost 10am and it is already 33c!

    ♥ and (((((hugs))))) Wo!

    Oh, wo, moaning is nearly always allowed, though given your subject matter, maybe I shouldn’t mention it ;) Look, remember the “fuck you mantra” (fuck you, what the fuck do you know), and also the little adage, “this too will pass” – I usually apply the last in hope when I am eating chocolate. “This too will pass, and not settle on my hips”. Oh, you can apply the fuck you mantra my way too, just do it silently, unless you’re doing it for fun, and ((((WotV)))). I just sent you an mbl.

    T, I rsbe in my last post.

    I would love to talk about the weather for a change. It sucks. It’s 60 and rainy. T, at least when it’s hot there it isn’t muggy like here. This just sucks.

    Aren’t I a little ray of sunshine today?

    T, still prefer your weather; it’s just what I grew up with, though it can get tiresome. Toy, where do you live again? Seems you might be on the same kind of latitude etc as here. WotV, what everyone else said. It will ultimately be over, and hopefully the guy realises he’s stepped over a line and reign himself in a bit? Okay, book hunting and then swimming . . .

    Ooh, hi, T – I was answering you without realising you were there. I do know that weather. And you sure have to wear your sunblock, or I do. I’m kind of pasty that way. When I was in Oman, which has 28° c days in the cool season, they’d look out at the rare overcast day and say, “Wow, wonderful weather today!”

    Good morning (((Rose))) the opposite is true here that it is just hot and days on end sunny. It actually makes people have the reverse of cabin fever. I hope that the late summer rainy season here is a good one.

    Good morning all! Ah, beans, I remember those days of determination. Well, I AM going swimming today (I’m shouting at my inner-laziness, not the CIFs) – so there, inner-sloth. I am writing this before reading the posts of today so that I feel I have achieved something!

    Beans, you’re not in Vancouver, are you? I was going to say it has rained and rained and rained here for oh so long, and Mark can back me up, I hope (ToS too of course, but that’s a another matter, and not for a family forum like this one). Then I got to thinking, just a few moments ago, that this is the rainy season in Japan, so it’s kind of similar, except there is actually heat there too. Well, it’s about 15° C most days here, so, you know, not freezing . . . and there was some sun yesterday.

    You are a hero for driving your sister, and your post reminded me of this song. A Perth gal, Elizabeth Stephenson, does a great version of this. Not up on Youtube, though. Amy, I love that photo on your flickr.

    i dont know how warm it is here, as i only went outside at seven this morning in my (delightful old man) pajamas to rescue my sister when she did not in fact need rescuing, her ride was just late.

    but it is raining.

    i am feeling determined today.

    That would totally work for me. I hate summer here with a passion. The feeling of simmering in your own juices all day makes for a grumpy me. Thank god I can jump in the pool when I get home. I spend 4 months of the year pruned up and smelling like chlorine.

    Split the difference and we’ll both have high 70′s with some clouds? That would work for me.

    Good morning! Maybe everyone is affected by the nasty weather I’m having here. 50′s and raining! For the love of Pete Rose, it’s JUNE!

    On the plus side, it’s my baby Otter’s 1st birthday today. I just have to figure out what to make for dinner, other than birthday cake.

    WotV, hope your day gets better! Sending you some of the 24 hours of combined sleep my children got last night, and ALL of my preschooler’s energy. :)

    I didn’t sleep last night. At all. Finally took some Benadryl at 5 am out of desperation and asked hubby to get the kids out the door for school. Managed to toss and turn for a couple of more hours and then laid in bed feeling sorry for myself.

    This is not my favorite day.
