Hi and hugs, Sprite

Lizlin

I so want anomaly to be spelt anomoly
3:25 am
sprite

hi Liz :) *hugs* to you both. How are you doing?
3:25 am
sprite

would have been a good one, yes
3:25 am
Lizlin

Fine thanks - and you?
3:26 am
Lizlin

And I keep trying lobster
3:27 am
sprite

I am fine, thanks :) Did I tell you that all my blood tests came out perfectly? Even the liver values are back to normal.
3:27 am
Lizlin

That's really good news :)
3:27 am
sprite

lobstre :D
3:28 am
sprite

and the internist wants me to immediately lower the dosage of my diabetes and blood pressure medication as soon as the operation is done.
3:28 am
Lizlin

Dyslexic lobstre?
3:29 am
Lizlin

Wow! Less medication must be good.
3:29 am
sprite

lol yes
3:30 am
sprite

less medication is always good. Makes me very happy. They will keep me under close observation for some weeks, to see if it works out as he thinks. I am confident it will.
3:31 am
Lizlin

And a positive mindset helps too.
3:31 am
sprite

in that case, we can throw out the whole bunch of pills :D
3:31 am
Lizlin

Go for it!
3:33 am
sprite

I will. On the road to better health!
3:34 am
Lizlin

Gonna be a totally new person - not in personality though.
3:35 am
sprite

no, not in personality. Just in health and energy levels. And probably more active too, when it becomes easier to be outdoors and moving.
3:36 am
Lizlin

Such a good target for you
3:36 am
sprite

will keep you up to speed :)
How are things at your side? Pool fence done?
3:37 am
Lizlin

Mostly - the professional stuff anyway. Just bits and pieces to finish off.
3:37 am
Lizlin

Will send you pics when it's all done.
3:37 am
sprite

ah wonderful. That has been a long haul.
3:38 am
Lizlin

Tell he about it!
3:38 am
sprite

*hugs Liz*
3:38 am
Lizlin

Next the inspector has to come and approve it - another stupid expense!
3:39 am
Lizlin

Thanks - hugs always appreciated.
3:40 am
sprite

ugh yeah. I really dislike that whole system. All that nonsense while you are building stuff on your own property.
3:41 am
Lizlin

Ours should comply because we consulted the inspector first but it's quite usual not to be accepted first time :(
3:42 am
sprite

same thing here. So very frustrating.
3:42 am
Lizlin

Definitely
3:52 am

Have a lovely day. Hugs
3:54 am

4:22 am
mrpresident

hi everyone :)
4:24 am
mrpresident

I watched the shark attack on Mick Manning and was completely taken back to the movie Jaws! It was so scary!
4:25 am
mrpresident

He is one very very lucky man
4:26 am
zoozzoom

Yes he was very lucky.And for it to be filmed at the time of the event.
4:27 am
mrpresident

yes, I watched it live and my heart nearly fell out of my mouth when he disappeared behind the wave
4:29 am
zoozzoom

I have only seen the video of it on the bbc website so i knew he was going to be okay.But yes if it was live and i saw it then.I would of been very worried for him like you say going behind the wave for a rather long time without being seen.I understand his parents have just watched it also!
4:29 am
mrpresident

apparently was a three metre great white... not an adult shark either
4:29 am
mrpresident

yes, I just watched an interview with his mum...
4:30 am
zoozzoom

when he got onto the rescue board and bowed his head...I could feel him say bloody hell that was close.
4:31 am
mrpresident

yes, he is most thankful to be alive and not hurt in any way
4:32 am
zoozzoom

I understand some parts of Autralia got rather a lot of snow on the ground yesterday or the day before? anywhere near you?
4:32 am
mrpresident

the guy that was surfing with him was in tears describing trying to get to him, and losing sight of him
4:33 am
zoozzoom

Wonder how many people got into the water after that..lol
4:33 am
mrpresident

oh no zoom, I am in sub tropic area on the coast... but the snow is only up the road... we have a mountain range close by that got the snow
4:33 am
rururocks

That us why i only surf the internet
4:34 am
zoozzoom

hehe me too, ruru!
4:35 am
mrpresident

hey ruuster!
4:36 am
mrpresident

no matter if you are on the ground or at sea, you will get killed by something here
4:36 am
rururocks

Hi.. i saw the video too. Horrifying
4:37 am
zoozzoom

Yes I suppose that could be true for anywhere.
4:37 am
mrpresident

they didn't go ahead with the final. divided the points and the prize money
4:38 am
zoozzoom

Wonder if he gets a bonus point for dodging the shark!
4:39 am
rururocks

I am glad he didn't get too chummy with the shark πŸ˜‚
4:39 am
zoozzoom

teehee!
4:39 am
mrpresident

oooh an emoji! how you do that ruu
4:40 am
zoozzoom

πŸ˜‚
4:40 am
zoozzoom

I just copied and pasted it into the chat πŸ˜‚
4:40 am
rururocks

😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁
4:41 am
mrpresident

hmmm ...
4:41 am
zoozzoom

I used to do loads like that a while back.But since I got this windows 8.1 for some reason it is hit and miss with them.
4:42 am
rururocks

Back to bed 4 me,
4:43 am
zoozzoom

Sweet sleeps, ruru. good to see you!
4:45 am
zoozzoom

Do you undrstand the copy & paste, Mrp?
4:46 am
mrpresident

no zoom, where to copy from?
4:49 am
zoozzoom

Where , ruru has done all those funny faces if you move your white arrow over the first one..then left click keeping it down move across to the right( there should now be a blue background across them) let go of the button now without moving the mouse right click and a dialouge should come up and click on copy. then just goto the chat log and then right click again and paste it ito there.Done.
4:50 am
zoozzoom

Sounds complicated when describing how to do it.But it is rather easy.And gets easier as you get used to doing it.
4:50 am
mrpresident

??
4:51 am
mrpresident

doesn't work for me

I know that lickety has had to add words that are not in enable that the game accepts
5:07 am

Oh I did not kno that.I know when babble first started of Dr_God used the Official Scrabble Dictionary. But it was limited to how many letters could be entered so then went to Enable.

They had a lot of rain in that (of course, I gone NONE of it here) and somehow that happened. Going to be a real mess for traffic, especially truckers.

Just giving you a little grief, zoo. I didn't want to do more than what you asked for.

Teehee no worries, Nef :-)

Good! :-D. How are you doing lately, zoo?
2:48 pm
Nef

(zooz) Sorry
2:48 pm
zoozzoom

I am well thanks.And how about yourself?
2:48 pm
magazinemom

Informal poll- what color are your walls painted? We're looking at houses and I've seen lots of bright white, which means I'll have to paint them a neutral color I like better and then yesterday we saw some that were painted mustard yellow. Yikes!
2:48 pm
zoozzoom

Zoo zooz pillock what ever :-)

2:49 pm
magazinemom

Hi Katie!
2:49 pm
Nef

magazinemom, I've been house hunting with my daughter lately & from what I've seen, there is no accounting for taste!
2:49 pm
zoozzoom

I am boring, Magazinemom, Mine are magnolia only as that color seems to go with anything.
2:50 pm
Judi

My SIL painted every room in her house a different (bright) color. She likes it, but it gives me a headache after about 5 minutes.
2:50 pm
magazinemom

See, neutral, magnolia-- that's what I'm looking for so I won't have to paint and that's what I will be repainting my house in to get it ready to sell.
2:51 pm
MollyL

Judi, I have seen houses like that. It looks like Walt Disney threw up.
2:51 pm
Nef

I like pastels: one room is a very soft butter yellow, another is pastel teal, another is baby blue, etc.
2:52 pm
Judi

I believe most buyers prefer to see neutral colored walls. Just about any shade of pink is a major violation in my humble opinion.
2:52 pm
magazinemom

Obviously, it's not a make or break the sale kind of thing, but for the price I'm going to be paying I hate to have to go in and start painting once we buy.
2:52 pm
zoozzoom

Got the AN8 thanks once again :-)
2:52 pm
magazinemom

That sounds pretty Nef. I could handle that :)
2:52 pm
Nef

My neighbors just sold their house & had painted everything a very soft grey with a accent color on some smaller walls. It looks very rich - & soothing too
2:53 pm
magazinemom

Plus, I have to minimize any kind of confusion going on in the house. Mom had mid-stage Alzheimer's and we are all moving in together.
2:54 pm
Judi

Phantom: Lobster.
2:54 pm

thanks. (of course, my kitchen is plain old white (the better to see spatters & spills I've learned!)

2:55 pm
Nef

magazinemom, one thing I learned years ago was that pink (especially what I call Pepto-Bismal pink) helps calm agitated people
2:56 pm
Nef

(My daughter's room was painted that color when she was younger; it really worked! She was a very difficult child)
2:56 pm
magazinemom

Nef, the people who lived in my first house must have read that article. Lol. Of course they also used shelf paper as wall paper.

2:57 pm
Nef

Shelf papaer on a wall? Oh MY! That must have been tough to remove!
2:58 pm
magazinemom

It was not pretty. The last 2 houses I've lived in have been fixer-uppers. I swore when I bought another one that it would be ready to live in.
2:58 pm
Judi

Shelf paper on the wall? I think that's a crime in most states and countries.

zoozzoom

Welcome, Marc.
3:01 pm
magazinemom

And all the walls (even within the same room) were different colors like they had bought paint remnants.
3:01 pm
Judi

I guess those things can happen when you let a four year old decorate your house. Egad.
3:01 pm
magazinemom

My current house just looked like 1968 and I had to take the gold mirror tiles off the wall in the entryway.
3:03 pm

Aqua cabinets with purple geese is probably the most heinous kitchen decoration theme I have ever heard of

Our first house was... a disaster.
3:08 pm
Nef

during high school I let my daughter paint her room. (It's a basement bedroom with panelled wood walls) She painted it with brink yellow and bright pink stripes. *I* couldn't stand it; & when she was moving out for college I made her paint it a nice soft color. She chose a muted pastel turquoise and used a very soft grey-white for the trim.
3:08 pm
zoozzoom

Thanks..looking..
3:09 pm
Judi

When I think of all the money we put into that hovel, I should be retired by now.
3:09 pm
magazinemom

My 17 year old wants purple walls. I told her she would be the one painting over them when the house had to be sold
3:10 pm
Judi

Purple... just a more intense shade of pink. Violation!
3:10 pm
Marc Freeman

bo7, please?
3:10 pm
Nef

make her paint them the color she wants; but she HAS to re-paint it when she goes to college. My daughter learned that maybe her color choices needed to be toned down a bit
3:10 pm
magazinemom

That's how that first house I had was, Judi. My dad really thought he was helping us out, but it would have been cheaper and easier if he had just cosigned a loan for us.
3:11 pm

Judi

We were so young and stupid, Mag mom. The lot was beautiful, but the house was determined to kill us.
3:12 pm
magazinemom

good point nef. I told her no violent purple. She has a comforter set in mind, so I told her to try to coordinate with that in something not too bright.
3:14 pm
zoozzoom

The only one I can come up with is natatory .
3:15 pm
Nef

Oh, yeah, one more thing: make her do all of the cleanup too. (ANY & all drips & spatters, + cleaning out the brushes, etc). I really think my daughter learned that cleaning up was work too. (She had to do 3 coats of paint to cover up the bright yellow & pinks.
3:16 pm
Nef

Zooz, think G

Ha ha! Good for you, Nef. Painting a room is a slog. Especially the corners.

3:44 pm

IDK, dogs can take over a whole bed even if they are small. We found that out with our last dog; I don't think I'd ever let another one sleep in my bed again
3:44 pm

(I had a phone call, so delayed response.

lol.. the tv show.. love watching it an imagining how difficult some of the physical challenges are
6:45 pm
stidmama

oh! *grin* still not watching much TV although it's tempting some days.
6:46 pm
stidmama

just want to get down to 70, then will take a break again and go sort a few more items (I hope) into the garbage...
6:46 pm
Aloyisius

one of the few shows I watch.. inspiring for this body with waning strength and flexibility..
6:47 pm
Aloyisius

are you having a garage sale, stid?
6:53 pm
stidmama

no, still going through boxes from the fire (and from the storage locker that we emptied when we moved home last year)
6:54 pm
stidmama

The items that might be garage-sale worthy are few and far between. I am keeping a few sentimental items, photographing some items (setting some things aside for scanning this winter), and selecting things from the storage locker that are still school-worthy. Things from the house fire are NOT school-worthy, but a few items are recoverable enough to keep as heirlooms.
6:56 pm
stidmama

and that's 70... how is your summer going, aloyisius?
6:58 pm
Aloyisius

oh.. am sorry you have to go through all this.. we live in a 100yr+ old farmhouse in Ohio.. and so much stuff has accumulated from the attic to the basement and garage that it is mind boggling and overwhelming.. really need to do what you are doing now but not sure where to start.. will take some tips from you.. ty.. summer is going well, full of travel this year, so .. once again, the house is neglected.. oh well.. time to scoot for Ninja Warrior.. wishing you good progress, stid!

the word "craving" implies a strange fascination with something... ;o)
7:55 pm
72 Temple Owl

well then, when applied to food, i guess the word in used incorrectly. yet such a common usage.
7:57 pm
penquis

oh it's fine.....just thinking aloud...
7:57 pm
72 Temple Owl

need to dive in and finish, busy day, just grabbing dinner.
8:43 pm

Hmm, and yet synonyms for craving are longing, yearning, desire, all in keeping with the whole food idea (and other things)
