It's the Broomstick B!tches in all their glory....wish it was a little bigger....*sigh* I'm loving your Pootlebry series....*gigglesnort* I'm gonna send her over to check 'em out if she hasn't already....
No, I think that I'll content myself with just listening to Dixieland jazz. I'm having too much fun on ICHC to take up any more activities! Besides, I'd probably be devestated by how much I've forgotten. It's sort of like visiting places where you've lived; you're always saddened by the changes.
Oh, I don't know. I suspect that I may have OCD tendencies. When I was in band, I voluntarily practiced for 3-4 hours at a stretch! When I was on swim team, they couldn't get me out of the pool. And now, with ICHC, I'm fighting to tear myself away. If I were to start playing clarinet or sax again, I'd probably be spending all day and night jamming with a jazz band!
Ah ha! Percussionists do it to the beat! I played a variety of woodwinds during my school days, but I didn't pursue music afterwards. I've always regretted my decision, so I'm pleased to hear that you took the other road. Sorry to hear that McG & W were correct in their suspicions; I'll not be using that company of courier cats again!
Yes, your stuck truck rescue plan "sounds sound" ;-). I have some timbers, left here from the mining days, but that which was once a solid road, is now turning into "goop". The Ranger is beached high enough up the bank, so it is in little danger of washing away, but it is sinking deeper into mud. It may be there for a while, and it will need to be dug out.___ I think, that your step-father must have trained you in verbal/mental Kung Fu. It is said, "That which does not kill you, makes you stronger". You really do have a very well disciplined mind. :-)
I believe you could. :-) You are so eloquent in writing. I wish I had more confidence when speaking. If I can even talk, some people may sometimes wonder, unless it is botany, or some equally nerdy subject that I am passionate about. I am getting better in "Mexican"; though, because most of the TV, here, is in "Spanglish". :-D ___ The snow keeps falling, and the power, and phone, keeps "outaging". So I spent much of the day down the mountain, trying to see if I could figure out a way to get a little truck out of a big arroyo. I did fill up all the ruts, so that it will be smoother when the ground gets solid enough to bring in a tow truck. What was once a hard-packed adobe road, is now more like soft jello-pudding. Whoever's weather this is, it is very weird, and I wish that they would come and claim it, and take it back home. ;-)
For now, I would be happy to speak English without making "certain people" (S'Shon), not strain to not laugh (okay, guilty... I think he is unintentional funny, too. So this is only fair.). I once tried to learn German, but I only speak "Shlurman". I am like Mexican friends, who take Spanish, and make a "D". They only speak "Spanglish".___ The Jeep was puled out soon after it got foundered. But the Ford Ranger, it is still very well stuck. We secured it with a cable, so the mud would not take it further down the arroyo. I am happy that the miners built on solid rock! :-)
Yes, "... a very long time to say so very little". ... But, it was with 0.00000% ambiguity, and absolute clarity, that they made it plain(yes, plain, my favorite concept ;-) ) that they were geeky Star Trekkers!!!!1! Thou should not be vague, about such things! ;-) LOL!!! Otherwise, people could be "taken aback", by their dear, sincere, sweet, "silliness". __ Speaking Lojban, may be a good thing. Or at least, a necessary thing, for this culture, at some time in the future, I think. ;-) Though, maybe not for myself. I am certain that I sound very much to "funny", already. ;-D
Yes, it was a VERY nice thought. :-) But, now a small Ford Ranger is down in a big, muddy ditch (but unscathed ... well - at least no more scathed, than it was before), and one nice Jeep is slightly scathed across one fender. ... But then - I could have perished, of WWW Deprivation, a terrible way to die!!! ;-) I have a propane generator (with a "two year tank"), Cad-Electric heat, a cell phone(company business, and emergency only. Yes, I told them, "do not worry".), and many "Alternate Energy Kindel Downloads" (these were called, "books") But my friends think that this is not adequate, for sustaining nerd-life on this planet. ;-) Being honest, I was having slight internet withdrawal, but not fatal.___ Where have my hot, arid desert mountains gone?! It is Canada out side!!! ___ How far did your parents need to travel, to be frozen? For reverse-migration, this is NOT good weather!!!!1!!
