off to see a realtor about a house...
GAH I JUST WROTE TO MY REALTOR AND ASKED HER TO PUT IN AN OFFER GAAAHHHHHHHH - lris
PICS! - Meg VMeg
LOVE THE AIRLOCK - Meg VMeg
It's cute! - Meg VMeg
Nice! - Betsy
Watch, now somebody else will out-bid me, just when I finally made up my mind - lris
nope they won't. you'll get it. also i've not done homerepair before, but watched a lot of rehab addict and i'll help operate sanders or something :) - Sir Shuping is just sir
You're going to have to hire somebody to do lawn care. And regrade the side of the house around that window well. - DJF from Android
Yep, and yep. - lris
Exciting!!! - Marie
Wow! The airlock is great and the bathroom looks like it was just redone. I also like that the kitchen cabinets have simple, flat doors as I was just noticing how much gunk collects in the grooves of mine. - Galadriel C. from Android
So explain to me the whole airlock thing? I've never seen one before. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
^ - Marie
Love the grain on the built-ins in the bedroom. If you get re-landscaped, you can save on hiring someone to do mowing, etc. (Owen Dell showed slides of a landscape he designed for a guy who wanted to do absolutely NO maintenance. He had pictures from years later and the guy really had done no maintenance and it looked terrific. http://www.owendell.com/Books...) Good luck! - Spidra Webster
And which room have you chosen as the yarn room? - Hedgehog
Oh, that's cute! Love the built-ins, and that enclosed front porch (totally giggling over "airlock") will be very, very nice in winter. - Kirsten
In my world, airlocks are mudrooms, if that's a word you know -- they give you a space in which you gear up and gear down for the outside weather, without bringing said weather into your foyer/house. So you go out into the airlock/mudroom to put on your boots and snowpants and coat and mittens and hat and scarf, all of which can then, later, be taken off there, and dry, before you open the door into your house. When it's -20F outside, and you're covered in snow, this is AWESOME. - Jenica
It is the bane of our existence that our house here has no mudroom/entryway/airlock (this is new to me as a term-always used mudroom) of any sort. Not even a hall closet. Yes, it's Virginia but yes, we have weather and clothes. Stupid, stupid builders. - Julie Kane
Huh, in my South Dakotan side of the family, a mud room includes a shower, because they're farmer stock and they come in from the hog farm or the fields and need a shower before entering the house proper. - lris
Justin and I dream of a house with a workshop for him that connects to the house via a mudroom with the laundry and a shower in it... Work with nasty chemicals and metal filings and sawdust, then drop all your dirty clothes and take a shower before coming into the house proper. PERFECTION. - Jenica
The house I grew up in had a breezeway that attached the garage to the house. The first room after that was a hallway that had, on one end, a full bath, and then the laundry area. We definitely used that area to divest ourselves of filthy barn clothes, coveralls, etc. Horse muck did not belong in the house. - Katy S
Oooooo. All of those things sound amazing. Our long-term plan is to expand and cover/enclose our deck, add a mudroom there, and an open deck off of our bedroom. And finish the basement, with bathroom. Sigh. Someday. - Julie Kane
Oddly, out here, laundry rooms are sometimes called mudrooms--e.g., ours is between our "breakfast nook" and garage. I like the airlock idea for climates where it's more frequently needed... - Walt Crawford
Creeping charley is very good at holding soil down. I'm all for it. - maʀtha
I like the closets and cabinets very much - maʀtha
so much wood! i see lots of potential in the sun room. it's cute! - kendrak
you're gonna love that screen porch!! it's also cat heaven!! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
I've read through this three times trying to find your post that your offer was accepted. Well? (The house is really, really nice, so I hope that it was.) - Mama Lawson
I don't know yet if the offer was accepted, and the realtor expects we won't know until early next week. The suspense is killing me. - lris

As the wine drips through the holes, more of the liquid is exposed to the air, which helps to enhance its flavour. Wine can then be poured into glasses via gaps around the edges of the collar and the holes in the breather component. - банный tiger from Bookmarklet

I just made a drink, lots of gin, a little orange liquor, some tonic water, and a wedge of Myer lemon. It's been a long couple days. I don't know what it's called but I deserve this.
Does this beat a bottle of wine? - Me
Well that depends. Is it a bottle of red? A bottle of white? - Eric - It's My Thing
Red of course. White is for whimps. - Me
Perhaps a bottle of rose tonight. - Eric - It's My Thing
So that's kicking in. o_O - Eric - It's My Thing
Ummm... HELLO! I didn't see your ass on the visitor's "bed" in that hospital! - Elena from FFHound!
True. Can I get you a libation? You seem to prefer bed to drink though. - Eric - It's My Thing
@Eric - Poppa Large: true. I am quite comfy - Elena from FFHound!
She called me Poppa Large. - Eric - It's My Thing

Desktop Engineering position at a national health insurance provider. I'm so pumped! - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Congratulations! - John (bird whisperer)
I have to say I'm very impressed with the Nashville IT job market. We've been here just under 2 months. I started a temporary contract position less than 3 weeks after moving here and have a permanent (well temp to perm but I'm already claiming the perm position) within 7 weeks. I feel very blessed. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
If you work in IT and need a new job/change of scenery you should strongly consider the Nashville area. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
congrats! - imabonehead
Congratulations! - Anika
Should we interpret the "Snoopy Dance" as a clue as to who the national health insurance provider is, or is that just a red herring? - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Congratulations! - Betsy
Definitely a red herring (unintentional) in this instance. Hadn't even made the connection until now to be honest. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I think I find this so gratifying because it provides a much needed confidence boost career-wise for me. It's nice to have someone look at your education/experience/body of work/potential for growth and be willing to give you an opportunity to show what you've got. I feel like I was pigeon holed for years first in dead end call center/help desk jobs and more recently in desktop support... more... - DB, Lil LB's Dad

Why men never remember anything: The gender divide in memory recollection, explained.
"Recently, I was visiting my family in Seattle, and we were doing that thing families do: retelling old stories. As we talked, a common theme emerged. My brother hardly remembered anything from our childhood, even the stories in which he was the star player. (That time he fell down the basement steps and needed stitches in the ER? Nope. That panicky afternoon when we all thought he’d disappeared, only to discover he’d been hiding in his room, and then fell asleep? Nothing.) “Boys never remember anything,” my mom huffed." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
Wow, I thought my sister wrote this. I was just in seattle and we had this same experience. She was recalling my childhood better than I was. Parallel evolution. Only our stories involved BB guns and thrown knives and rocks. - Todd Hoff

Hookuh, he's not :-( but I do know where you can get one, LOL. I was going to do them in pairs for $14 but singles are ok too. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I would totally take a pair of teeny whale beads. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
Would you like them as earrings? (French hook) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Totally. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
Ooooh! I want to order some as earrings, too. :) - Signs Point to LB from Android
Okeedokee. $17 for earrings (normally $20), I'll pay the shipping and you choose sterling or surgical steel hooks. Sound fair? - Shannon - GlassMistress
those are cute - so wait, you have a storefront somewhere? Can I have the link? I really like some of the stuff I've seen you post and I'd love to watch what you have for sale - there've been a few pieces in the past that I thought would be possible gifts for folks. :) - ellbeecee
Sounds totally fair! :D - Hookuh Tinypants
Yay! I'll get them made up this weekend and send you a PM when they are ready. Duncan thanks you! - Shannon - GlassMistress
Huzzah! (What's the difference between sterling and surgical steel as far as my ears are concerned?) - Signs Point to LB
There is a slight difference in color, the surgical steel is grayer and the stearling bright silver. Some people are allergic to silver so I keep the steel on hand as an option. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I can go either way though I find that I get zero irritation with surgical steel whereas for some reason, once in a blue moon, sterling will cause me slight irritation (itchy piercings). Much appreciate that you offer these options! It's so hard to find cute earrings that aren't attached to cheap metal hooks. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
I don't think I'm allergic, but I'll go with the steel. :) - Signs Point to LB
I dont get much call for the surgical steel but like you, people seem to appreciate having the choice. THANK YOU BOTH! Very much!!! - Shannon - GlassMistress
Thank YOU, crafty lady! *hugs* to Duncan! - Signs Point to LB
If either of you get your works of art before i get my snaggletooth fish you're both getting kicks to the ovaries. :) - Steve C Team Marina

Am I the only one who would want this whale with Twitter birds & HootSuite owls as part of a Twitter-themed charm bracelet? #socialmediadork - Corinne L
Corinne, I did an Instagram bead not too long ago and was wondering if Twitter birds and the Fail Whale etc might be something people would want as a group :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
I want whale earrings too!! Sterling hooks please! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Shannon, YES. Have you done owls yet? I use HootSuite all the time for Twitter management and their mascot is an owl. DM me with how much this would cost & I will set aside the funds! *jumps up and down* - Corinne L
I do little owls .. they arent really like the logo though. I'll DM you a photo :) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Y'all, the whale earrings are so cute! :D - Signs Point to LB from Android
Yay! They made it! - Shannon - GlassMistress
There were whales in my mailbox yesterday. :) - Signs Point to LB from Android
Big mailbox ;-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Indeed. :) Also, I wore them today, and the cashier at Kroger said she liked them. :D - Signs Point to LB
Nice! It's always fun to get feedback like that. - Shannon - GlassMistress

Sir John Franklin's doomed 1846 Northwest Passage expedition ship found in Canadian Arctic - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
"The remains of one of two ships used by a former governor of Tasmania on a doomed Arctic mission in 1846 have been found, Canada says. HMS Erebus and HMS Terror, led by Sir John Franklin, a former governor of Van Diemen's Land, disappeared on a expedition to find the Northwest Passage, a sea route connecting the Atlantic and Pacific oceans through the Arctic. Now Canada's prime minister Stephen Harper has announced that the wreck of one of the ships has been found on the seabed. Sonar images released by Parks Canada showed the hull of the ship resting on the bottom, while underwater video showed shattered timbers and other wreckage. While enough information existed to confirm its authenticity, it remained unclear which of the two ships had actually been discovered. "This is truly a historic moment for Canada," Mr Harper said. "Franklin's ships are an important part of Canadian history given that his expeditions, which took place nearly 200 years ago, laid the foundations of Canada's... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

I have hit a new low. My fallback when someone doesn't speak English is Spanish (I'm in So Cal so it works a lot of the time). Unfortunately my brain doesn't think before it jumps to new language so Spanish has come out when I'm in Tokyo for example. Today I used it with a deaf person.
Luckily I've known her for years so once i understood the confused look on her lip reading face we both laughed. :) - Steve C Team Marina
