  1. There's going to be a movie done by the people who made "Veep"
  2. You don't even decorate? I do just to make me happy, usually just lights in my more unmotivated seasons
  3. You guys are making me happy I don't have to deal with family and Christmas buying. Old ppl and coins; my good friend has parents in dementia who cannot buy enough coins. They don't rust Biden and the banks so they buy coins. WTF.
  4. Sell them as soon as you get them and let him know you have?
  5. I got a new one and it was definitely my mouse
  6. So, IS it my mouse? Should I just get a new one?
  7. Its bottom is clean. It's a regular, corded mouse. Now, instead of right clicking, it's giving me odd drop down menus. I play a jigsaw puzzle game and I'm having real trouble grabbing and moving the puzzle pieces. It's very frustrating.
  8. This past week I've been having online problems. I KNOW YOU'RE SHOCKED. but seriously. Like, I can't drag things around a screen, I always lose them unless I concentrate on really holding my right button down. And when I try to highlight text, it gives me fits! I can't easily highlight even the shortest text. I know it's not my cursor, ha ha, but is this a mouse issue?
  9. Maybe I am in a bit of a grief funk. I've been thinking about my parents a lot lately. I spent Thanksgiving at my cousins and heard many stories, which was nice. I do want to send cards this year but I'd like to buy local and I'm loathe to go out shopping. I'd love you to visit, Spam! Girl trip is March 7-11th this year. But I live here now, so ... LOVE the new socks! Nicole, I"m impressed with your shopping so far
  10. So, this will be my first tropical Christmas as a resident and I'm not feeling it yet. I bought a tree (artificial, lighted) on craigslist but am totally unmotivated to decorate it. My friends here and some back in Seattle are in the same boat as I am; we really don't want more 'stuff' and don't have the money to buy experiences so we made a deal for no presents and we just get together and go out instead. There are no kids in my immediate life so I have nobody to buy presents for this year. Wrapping and displaying gifts used to be one of my favorite parts of the holidays. I should be psyched that his leaves me with money to do nothing but decorate but like three people will see it so it seems like too big of a bother. Decorating means keeping it all dusted, too then I'd have to stow it all nicely again and my storage closet is like a Jenga game. What are you spending money on this holiday? I wonder if I'm in a space or I'm just getting older and the holiday is losing its glitter for me.
  11. I bought a $200 Christmas tree, now I don't feel like decorating it.
  12. so, now how many pillows do you own?
  13. Yeah, I see those a lot here. Nine out of 10 of my mondo grass has died and the one that's still alive is struggling. I may try to plant some again soon and see if starting out during cooler weather makes a difference I don't have dappled shade-mine comes in blocks. I miss gardening.
  14. Thanks for the birthday wishes. Nicole, you'd trust me around your kids? Spam, I feel you. I've gotten so used to 55+ pools, I can't even tolerate the good grandkids that show up here at times. I don't do well with most kids when they're in their natural habitat, unless I already know them.
  15. GUYS, I'm 65! I turned 65 about 23 hours ago. I applied for my Medicare number. What a giant pain! I'm going to go ahead and get the AARP magazine so I can get the complimentary Grab and Go Cooler. I've already decided I'm never going natural with my hair. I'm going to wait til I'm 70 to get Social Security for maximum money. Crap, my driver insurance is probably going to go up soon. All my new social connections have 'silver' in the title. I wish I knew when I was going to die.
  16. It's actually cooled off a tiny bit since the start of this month. Highs are in the upper 80s now, not the 90s and the humidity is okay some days. I don' know why all the grass here isn't dead right now.
  17. Well, I"d much rather go like Helen did than be eaten by a pitbull
  18. She was only 72. This seems to young to me to just drop dead. And that's what she did...she was powerwashing a deck. Someone in the basement heard it and went up to see what happened and she was just gone.
  19. One of the Girl Trippers has died; this makes two of us gone. One of the Jersey Girls, Helen, died on Tuesday. We still have few details. They're having a service in Jersey, two of the satellite Girl trippers from Erie will be there. The rest of us are going out to one of her favorite restaurants, then out to the beach where we stay in March.
