She should have waited until you took the shoes off, to my way of looking at things at least. (Unless the shoe trees are really tiny?)

That's awesome. You're a lucky brother.

As many of you know, one can express a thought by saying something other than what one directly means. For example, if your teammate makes a terrible shot in basketball, you can say "nice shot," but you mean "bad shot, please stop taking bad shots."

Why do I mention this? Well, I've noticed that people on the various web forums I participate in have widely varying abilities to comprehend such messages. The guys on the KISS sites are the absolute worst, and this gives me endless opportunities to troll them (shouldn't do that maybe what the hell though it is fun and harmless). The people on fragrance websites are second worst, but they take things too seriously, so trolling doesn't work. And people at style websites like SF are the best by far at understanding ironic messages (not true of some members of whom I will not name by name). And so I enjoy posting here very much (of which is not an ironic message). Hope this doesn't slowly transition into a KISS forum, as other forums have.

Is transitioning into a KISS forum an inevitable progression, like the slow ebbing of entropy that ultimately leads to the heat death of the universe?

Exactly. I've seen it too often to doubt it.

I used to be a member of Scientificmethodforvm, where people discussed various interpretations of the scientific method. That forum is now called KISS Asylum.

Since we moved last year I've not done much in the way of sausage making, and even at that, only have made fresh sausages. This weekend I took an inventory of things and placed an order for some items. Next weekend I plan to do 5# of smoked garlic salami in 90 mm diameter casings and 5# of smoked Polish sausage in 60 mm casings.

I had a solid weekend. Paddled about 3.5 miles Saturday, and the wife finally got to go to one of the classes I bought her for her birthday (she loved it). Plus, we got in some good family time, and I got a few hours of one-on-one hanging out and park time with LowerCaseG while MrsG was at her class Sunday morning.

Pretty soon I won't be able to wear pink pants anymore (seasonal appropriateness considerations). And so today I am wearing pink pants with a navy SC and no shirt (so's to show off my pecs.) The very last bit is untrue, I wouldn't go to work that way. In any event, I am enjoying my pink pants while I still can.

Also, I have been entertaining myself by singing some of my favorite songs (such as "All American Man" by KISS) as if they were songs by Joy Division. You'd think that would get old quickly, but no it does not.
post #34020 of 45921
One of my favorite Joy Division songs is "Disorder", track 1, side 1 on Unknown Pleasures. The opening lyric says, "I've been waiting for a guide to come and take me by the hand." Whenever I sing it at work everybody looks at me inquisitively. I think they look at me inquisitively because they mistake me for saying, "I've been waiting for a guy to come and take me by the hand." I am not saying that at all, but maybe they don't mistake me for saying that and they are looking at me inquisitively for an entirely different reason all together.
