  6. What does it mean when a movie makes you cry the second time you watch it? :cry: I mean, the first time around I get, then you don't know how it ends! But the second time…? What the hell does that mean?

  8. Went to a toy store to buy a birthday present for niece, paternal unit asked if there were any spiders there. Went to the grocery store, found plastic spiders and bought them for the paternal unit. He’s 69 years old and walking around with a plastic spider on his finger.

      RIGHT?! I guess he’s the proof that growing old is mandatory, but growing up is optional… :D

      Don’t grow up, it’s a TRAP!  :)

      I absolutely agree with that… that’s why I still haven’t grown up :D

       

  9. Fasting turns me into a fucking Tinkerbell! I only have space for one emotion at a time, and it’s amplified tenfold because my body wants food!

      Congrats on completing the fast, Willow ! Was Japanese Golden Curry and rice at the end of that rainbow ?

      So, *THAT’S* the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.  Now I know.  :sham:

      Yups, had a big plate of Japanese Golden Curry and rice once I got home, and then ate a can of Pringles a little while later :D Hungry is not a flattering state for me.

    Ogni giorno passo il tempo
    Bevo vino, sento meglio
    Resto qui e aspetto un segno
    Sperando possa vederlo
    Nei miei fogli non c'è più niente
    La carta piange, la penna mente
    Le parole che mi hai dato
    Le hai cancellate, ed ecco che

      I’m a fan of a nice nipple myself, and I will say, he does have superb nipples. :lol:

      *sighs* He does have superb nipples… :wub:

      And Luke Evans posted a new picture on his Insta, wearing nothing but some swimming trunks… Oooohhhh, to be on that beach… :drool:  not to mention that fucking 12 pack he has… 

  12. The adorableness of Catinca Untaru not knowing her lines, and totally not understanding a word of Lee Pace’s dialogue is beyond perfect. :wub: And Lee Pace’s performance in that role is beyond perfect as well. 

  13. So… we just had our second police shooting… :blink:

      Thank you, Kagome, but no worries. The incident happened on the east coast and I’m on the west coast. And the person who got shot is out of ICU now, recovering in hospital.
      He was going berserk with firearms outside a residence, shooting at other houses and at the cops when they arrived, and did not obey orders to put down his weapons. The police up here do not regularly carry firearms and only use handguns as an absolute last ditch measure. And they are trained to shoot to immobilise not to kill.

  14. So, the paternal unit has turned 69, and after two weeks of careful consideration I have decided to spend the rest of the year sniggering. He does not think it’s that funny...

  15. Got my first jab today. Been about an hour, and so far no signs of zombie-ism… And I so want to add a joke about my 5G reception right here, but maybe I shouldn’t… :D

      I was mildly sore for a day after the first shot, and quite a bit more tender for three days after the second shot, along with being really tired for two days. But I would do it again, honestly, because what I feel now is relief. 

    3. WillowDarkling

      WillowDarkling

      I do have a bit of a needle phobia so I tend to tense up when I get jabs of any kind, so there’s a small chance that might have increased soreness for me. Although the nurse did tell me to relax the shoulder, not sure if it worked :D

      Desiderius Price

      First jab, told the lady I needed a distraction… didn’t even notice it.   Second jab, I did notice it, but it was quick.

  16. And we have an eruption happening! A volcanic fissure has opened up in a small valley, and is erupting. There have been hardly any quakes in the past couple of days, so hopefully the quakes are done. I can’t wait for the authorities come up with an official name for the fissure and resulting lava.

      Well, yes, it only took the lava over 40 000 earthquakes in the span of 3 weeks to finish buffering, Desi :D 

      The location is sort of in the middle of the Reykjanes peninsula, so it’s kind of midway between the capital where I live, and the little town where my parents and baby sister & family live. But thankfully, the fissure is far enough away from the towns that there is very little danger. Biggest concern at the moment is gas emissions from the fissure going over townships, so authorities are issuing warnings about keeping windows shut, and that the lava might possibly run over the road that’s on the south coast of the peninsula, connecting it to the south coast of the country. But that’s alright, because there are two other roads out of the town where my family live, so there’s no danger of people getting cut off :D 

      But honestly, this is exciting enough that my parents (now officially both in their 60’s) ran out into their car and drove off to try and see the eruption, like about half the damned town :D

      I’m just glad your parents are okay. If my parents did that it’d be

      Just because that’s how luck treats my family.

      I think mum had THE best comment today… she got a text message while talking to me on the phone, and checked it… then told me that it was the county police department announcing that because of an “intended volcanic eruption...” such and such preparations had to be made… 

      I asked her “Intended? Are you sure it said intended? You sure it didn’t say possibly imminent?” 

      She then admitted that possibly the message had said Imminent and not Intended volcanic eruption, and that she’d probably just forgot what it said the moment she read it… 

      And that folks, is how I knew that my mother has become one with these earthquakes :D 

  18. I’m just going to say it… Congratulations, America.

      I literally cried from sheer happiness watching President Biden and Vice President Harris take their oaths of office. :wub: 

    2. CloverReef

      CloverReef

      Yessss, I’m not even in the US and it was such an immediate relief once the inauguration was over and it was done. He was gone. I don’t think Biden will be perfect by any stretch of the imagination but so much damage has been done and he clearly knows that his job is to help us heal. 

  19. Happy New Year, everyone. Hope 2021 will bring you joy, love and happiness.

  23. Final grade for the fan fiction terminology final assignment is in, and the assignment earned me an 8,5 (out of 10), which resulted in a final grade for the course, of 8. Not too shitty…

      I’ll do it once I’ve finished the last assignment I have hanging over my head. But for now, here’s the PDF file of the terms, as they appear in the terminology bank that I had to create for the assignment. It’s a weird format, but maybe you guys can look at it.

      Nice. Some of these I don’t know; others look like they came straight from the Content Tags menu. :)

    4. WillowDarkling

      WillowDarkling

      I used our tags for some of the terms, but then I used a list of definitions from here: http://www.angelfire.com/falcon/moonbeam/terms.html  to help me with the definitions. For example I used our anime specific terms which aren’t on Moonbeam’s list. I thought that was important, since we deal with so much anime related material. :D
