Minor victory thread

Yesterday I went shopping with my Xmas gift cards;
Replenished the Emergency kit,
Got a food dehydrator,
And a small dresser.

Today I made teriyaki beef jerky, cleaned out the closet and installed the dresser in it.

Gonna make salty squash seeds soon.

Edit: I also bought a new sieve.
 
Being referred to as "human" confers no guarantee of civility, decency, or even allegiance to one's own species.
I guess I'm not seeing the same parallel you are.

What does that matter? Especially if they are s stranger whom you do not know? If they aren't yours, they are just zombies, right?

Are you ok? You seem to be taking this very personally.
If there's something specific you want to discuss, can you take this to PMs? I think we've hijacked this thread enough.

I love the feeling of engineering a strategy that turns several days of hard work into just a few hours of smart work.

You've hooked up multiple monitors to your PC each playing a different video in an attempt to clear your porn backlog haven't you?
 
I posted my MtG Erebos fanart piece on the MtG subreddit and it just passed 500 upvotes.

Thank you, Scrivener, for having an auto-backup feature.

So I mentioned before that I won my fantasy league. Used some of the winnings on this. I wouldn’t consider myself a huge Eva fan, but this thing is awesome. It’s a popcorn bucket!

Also if you open the mouth the eyes light up. I love it.

Thank you for explaining what this was. My mind went... elsewhere...
 
The game is over.

Back in October, because of the usual influx of out-of-state drivers in Arizona, my wife and I decided to play The License Plate Game. Basically, the goal was to see license plates from all 50 states, and see how many of them we could find in our daily travels - without even leaving the state.

The game ended as of today.

Let the record show that yesterday, as I was heading back to the yard after my last run in the evening, I saw a Kentucky license plate on the back of a pickup. That was plate #49.

And, what to my complete surprise this morning, but there, parked in the apartment complex of one of the kids I take in to school in the morning, was a Rhode Island plate. I did a double take, but it was, indeed, a Rhode Island plate - which made it #50.

...you actually see Hawaiian plates in the continental US?
 
I'm just surprised, is all. I see plenty of continental European and British plates, of course, and the occasional Irish one though that's rare...I've only ever seen one Maltese and one Cypriotic plate, ever, outside of their respective islands. Why would someone shlep a car all the way from Hawaii to the rest of the USA? Unless it's an old timer or something.

According to google, shipping a car from Hawaii to the mainland by boat is less than $2000, so if you're moving that's significantly cheaper than buying a new car, most likely even factoring in the sale of the old car.
