  1. In August of 2001, I was a whopping 37 years old, so I was probably older than almost anyone here. But I was a Star Wars fan, had finally got a computer, and was looking for a message board where I could talk to other fans. Nightly was the first one I found. Tried a couple of others, but they didn't have the friendliness and fun of this place. I'm 57 now. Those 20 years have flown by, and all the people who were kids back then have kids of their own. I wonder if Nightly will be around long enough for THEM to join.
  2. I avoid taking painkillers, but sometimes I have pretty bad pain in my back, hips, shoulders, left knee, or some combination of the above. I was taking Advil for the pain for years, but it seems like it's not as effective anymore, so I've switched to Tylenol (the 500mg capsules). I only take it as necessary, maybe a couple times a week.
  3. I'm with you there. I simply don't understand trophy hunting. To kill an animal just so you can put its head on the wall is utterly baffling to me. I see no glory in it, and am not impressed by anyone who does it.
  4. That's one of the things I don't like about Arizona, the stores don't open early enough, at least not where I live. It's already getting hot by 8 AM, but some stores don't open till 9 or 10.
  5. I shop at Wal-Mart frequently, but I can't say that I enjoy it. There are usually too many people there, so I go as early in the morning as I can. Once it starts to get crowded, I get out. Socks and underwear are the only clothes I buy new (everything else comes from second-hand stores), and they're cheaper at Wal-Mart than anywhere else. For some reason, I hate buying groceries there, so I do most of my food shopping at Sprouts and Fry's. Most of my hardware and tool needs are met by Home Depot and True Value. If I need things like first aid items and ibuprofen, Wal-Mart can't be beat. They a
  6. When I was a kid, we went to a church where the pastor's last name was Nipple, except he pronounced it Nye-pple.
  7. Is there anything creative you can do while bed-bound? Something like crochet or embroidery, that doesn't require too much movement and you can put down when you get tired. So sorry you're going through this. Our medical system really sucks, and it sometimes feels like the doctors are just taking a wild guess when it comes to figuring out what's wrong, and that they don't really care .
  8. "Joy to the World," by Three Dog Night. Oh, wait, on my actual birthday (July 3), it was "It's Too Late, " by Carole King.
  9. Schweddy Balls Panera has a couple of new salads, of which I tried one, and it was just okay. The honey mustard dressing is good, but there's a seed mixture in the salad, and if you bite down on one of them, it's like eating a bit of gravel. Real nice experience for our customers, I'm sure.
  10. I'm in the process of refinishing a cabinet that's built in to the wall in my living room. The inside is covered in four layers of ugly paint: off-white/beige on top, then a layer of that "Dusty Rose" color that was popular in the 1980s, then a BRIGHT yellow with a hint of green in it, and then more beige. The outside is just layers of off-white and a sort of pinkish beige, although some of the details seem to have been a dark green color at one point. That goes back to the 1920s, I'm guessing. You can see the details I uncovered that were hidden under the paint. When I'm done with all the str
  11. Anyone added Britney Spears (b. 1981)? I know she's young, but that doesn't mean anything in the world of entertainment. I'm not even a fan of hers, but the more I learn about her, the more I feel bad for her. Antidepressant overdose or "accident" would be my guess.
  12. I love it! No storage space, but that could be added somewhere, or else use a lot of cabinets with doors to hide the clutter.
  13. Today, I pulled a muscle in the right side of my back, below the shoulder blade. All I did was put a container of flour back on the shelf after I made bacon pancakes! I get hurt doing the stupidest, most mundane shit. One time, I pulled a muscle in the middle of my back, between the shoulders, when I was brushing my hair, and had to go to a chiropractor to sort it out. Luckily, this time wasn't as bad, and it's already working itself out. Meanwhile, I'm refinishing a built-in cabinet in my living room, and other than the usual achiness from being out of shape, so far I haven't pulled a muscle.
  14. Went shopping at Walmart. Groceries, cat food, socks, underwear, and a few other bits and bobs. Spent just under a hundred bucks and it looks like I hardly bought anything.
