Did somebody mention chickens?

Jenny chicken. Mille fleur bantams (like what she is) are big, blowsy birds. They look like galleons under full sail.

Well! The visitation happened and went well, though their time here was short. It was great to see fambly again. And now I have a library, at last! I insist on pronouncing it ‘librrrree’.

Yesterday was the first day in six weeks I haven’t had this thing hanging over my head.

But, holy shit, what you little scamps have been up to! I am blowed away by that short story, Durned Yankee and BJM. I haven’t finished it yet. I’m using a funky old monitor and my comment text is too small. I’m going to have to paste the whole shebang into Word to make it out.

And congratulations to MrsDurnedYankee! I’m afraid I didn’t log in again after, like, Tuesday and I’m terribly sorry if I caused you Dead Pool anxiety.

I just checked. Ruth Bader Ginsburg seems to be doing fine. I’m sure she’ll make it to Friday.

Right! Places everyone…

Congrats on a successful family-visitation! They are so often wrought with peril that I am genuinely pleased yours was a success.

Does your librrrree have one of those terribly cool globes that opens to reveal an alcohol stash/History-Erasing Button?

Dat ‘Anonymous’ was me and my ever-wonderful, overly-senstive, and spontaneously-unhelpful laptop touchpad.

Glad the visitation was a success! My husband and I have decided that family, specifically his family, is way over rated. I am home, he is still at his father’s home dealing with the shit his hoarder father and compliant siblings left. He hopes to come home later this week and has declared that we will NEVER have to deal with any of his family members again. On one hand, my heart rejoiced because his siblings are douchbags. On the other hand, I was sad because my husband has given up trying to pretend his siblings aren’t douchbags and it broke my heart to watch him come to that decision.

Mr. Smartypants bought me two little individual serving cups of Auntys Spotted Dick from Amazon in honor of my victory.

They remain unopened and uneaten.

Thank you for running the contest Weasel.
What do I need to do now to get my special certificate so I can lord it over him.

Today is RBG’s 25th anniversary!
Losing today would be okay if the send off happened on this most special of days for her.

Not MrsDurned – she needs to use her own machine!

Mrs Durned: a mailing address. And I wouldn’t blame you a bit if you didn’t want to. I would hesitate, personally. I really, really don’t like letting the internet reach out and touch me.

There are some damned weird people out there.

Sweasy –

Here in comments?
or is there a email we can send to?

Uh, I have an idea – if I post it, and request deletion, it goes to the moderation queue, right?
and isn’t visible here.

And I assume you’re the moderator, or is it Aeden? 🙂

Mr. and MrsDurnedYankee – The email address at the top of every page here has worked the handful of times I’ve used it.

Uncle Al! Thank you – thought the “a plugin is needed to display this content” message was just for the occasional times when the browser was working

– so I used the Exploder browser and eh’ Violins! There it is.

And a certain person will now say “see…I told you”. You’d think after 35 years of being together I’d learn to listen. 🙂

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
