Re: I smiled because...

My box of mystery metal dice (with mystery wooden dice box) arrived in the mail yesterday, and they are still a mystery today ... going to open them for Christmas.

I will certainly post pics in a large number of places.

I couldn't afford it, simples. Had the research topic ready to go, had a potential supervisor. Maybe one day. However ...


Little Rufus is singing her Christmas songs from school. Littlest is giving her a round of applause.
When you are unasked offered a good salary at one of the best universities to do it and you turn it down, is a different picture. More important is little Rufus singing a round of applause, absolutely agree!

Have you ever tried Bündner Rahmröteli? Think Amarena Cherry Gelato but as an alcoholic beverage.

Not that I'm aware of, I'm afraid. But it is only 17% volume alcohol, so it could be sent in the post, especially if it were to be a smaller bottle for testing purposes.

I smiled because I'll never be Master Wang

"Wang Liutai practices the ancient art of ‘iron crotch’ kung fu, which involves smashing the crotch with a steel-capped log or other heavy objects."

Smiling spasm?

Christmas is coming, you will need more. Go to "Word of Today" and practice positivity. The thread needs it.
