Welp, I guess I am back for a bit.
« on: November 20, 2014, 02:07:16 AM »
So I have been gone for a while except for brief check-ins here and there. Life has been good. I’ve bought a house, planted some flowers, met some cool people, baked some bread, and looked at some trees. Still pretty much the same just haven’t had much to say, but I am generally fond of the people on the forum so I decided to come back. For those that don't know I was the resident Kemetic Orthodox and general a geeky doofus for a while.

How is everybody else?

I am ashamed to admit that I did not realize that you had left. Got my own distractions going on. Anyway, glad to see you posting again and I'm happy to hear you are doing well. Cheers!

Nah, don't worry about it, its not like I made some huge announcement or something. I just started posting less and less until I stopped, and I didn't post all that often to begin with.  ||shrug||

So what have you been up to?

Nice of you to drop in again, S&S. I always appreciate your contributions.






You might like to know that our valued member Maggie passed on in September. There's a thread here:

On one of my quick check-ins I did see this news, unfortunately by that point the conversation had turned distasteful so I chose not to participate. Personally I always liked Maggie and she added a unique element to this forum and it was sad to see that she had passed on. She was such a character and I mourn that I never got to know her as well as other members here. My hope is one day maybe I will get to meet her in person when my allotted time is done.

We're working on that.  I have designed a floorplan for a brand-new house, complete with 2 (two!!) flushing toilets, that I am getting an estimate for, sometime in the near future. (Hopefully tomorrow?)

Yay, S&S!  Let's see if we can get you to 1000......

Tell me about your house....  new?  used but new to you?  old?  haunted?  Just personable?  Does it like you?  Do you like it?  Is there anything you're planning to change?  Does it have flush toilets?  What do you like best about it?

The pope recently ordered public showers in St.Peter's square for the homeless.

Like that?

how do you prove that you're homeless without an ID?

You prove you're homeless by being willing to take showers in a public facility.  It's easier than voting.

There was this bishop,see,who got to talking with a guy out in St.Peter's square, and he discovered that it was the man's birthday,and the bishop invited the man in to have lunch with him and the pope.  The guy turned him down, because he said he hadn't had a shower in so long that he would feel awkward about hanging out with the pope.  The pope heard about it, and felt bad that someone would feel that their personal cleanliness kept them from talking to him, so he has ordered public showers to be installed.  (They already have public toilets.)

Well it is 520 square foot with a basement that is half finished (the other half is laundry and storage so I don't care). It was built in 1947 and has a lot of character which is what I like about it. Also it is small, one bedroom, and so it is easy for one person to take care of. However its yard is about a 1/3rd of an acre so I have lots of room to garden in. The real selling point however is that it is just a block away from Historic Down town St. Charles which is where the best shopping, restaurants, and art is at in the county. However it is a real fixer upper. I went and bought the second worse house in a really good neighborhood, it was a neglected rental house for 17 years! And oh it shows it so, first order of business is replacing the windows and removing a whole bunch of invasive 'trees of heaven' (more like trees of HELL). It does have a flush toilet and is not haunted.

Well I am one human being with no pets and I don't plan on ever having a partner so I am not concerned about it too much. It makes it easier to clean, heat, and keep cool. Also I guess it is more like 1040 square foot with the basement.

The second-worst house in a good neighborhood is the exact best house to buy!  And on a third of an acre, you can do anything!  It sounds perfect.

I know I am not supposed to, but I really like trees of heaven.  I think they're beautiful.  Also, I have a real weak spot in general for plants that just thumb their noses at everyone and GROW.  If a seed packet has any of the code words for "invasive" on it (eg. "self-seeds readily"), I am sure to buy it.  I don't suppose I could talk you into leaving one ailanthus, could I?   ||whistling||  Its roots are antibacterial, and used to treat malaria and as a vermicide.  Its bark is good for treating diarrhea.  Its leaves are used to treat skin problems like rashes....
