Well, there's no doubt about it anymore. I'm old. Been here--on earth, not on this forum--long enough for the world to redefine it's terms in a back-ass-wards way. I have an email from an online merchant from whom I occasionally shop, saying they're closed for the foreseeable future. Now that's some real social distancing. I'm here and they're way over there on the internets.....Yep, old. This new social distancing used to be called being anti-social.......which, come to think of it, I am......hey, I fit right in! I'm finally in the cool kids group.

It's easy. Just sit there and eventually all the open seats are gone and they have to sit by you....unless you're coughin' and sneezin' of course. Then you'll have all the seats to yourself..

A cute HIT, even if it does run in Unity, while it actually worked today for me. Looks complicated, but is a snap. Code will not copy for me, so I had to type it out..and you know I dislike typing in surveys.
HIT Time: HIT Time: HIT Time: I spent more time trying to figure out the code than doing the HIT. Was that an l..or a 1? And speaking of time...I hate short timers.

Title: A customization survey | PANDA

Seems like HIT TIME got all excited to be noticed. Like the kid in class who cries, ''Call on me! Call on me!!.''

National Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Day

I have never made these, perhaps should be my task for the day:witch:
I had to search that. Had no idea what that was....turns out, I do know. Lacy cookies is when you fumble the recipe and put too much water in the batter and the whole thing spreads out across the cookie sheet and is then inedible to all, 'cept the dogs. Who will try to eat anything. I didn't know doing it intentionally was a thing.

Kitty Sophia brought me a token as she often does. She brings a tiny toy mouse downstairs and drops it besides her person she picks and that person is supposed to take the mouse (token) and go upstairs and chase her through her tunnel. And people say animals are dumb.:aveline:

Nearest Target is on Galveston. I never shop there, besides I no longer drive(for the protection of all) and have no ride. There aren't any services for delivery here. This is a dead place on the map. If it can't be shipped to me, I can't have it. Yay, Texas. Great place to live, if you're young or have money or are not in the wrong part of it.

I had a follow up hit with my bonus sitting in the $0.00 area for the last five days. I had no idea it was sitting there.

Check if you have a Toby Handfield Follow up HIT from Earlier available to you.

I used to live at Lake Travis, an hour's drive through curvy roads to Austin and the nearest store. I learned to live country-style. You stock up and live out of the pantry and freezer...So I'm supplied for now. Trying to decide if I want to make pizzas or chicken noodle soup today. All of it would be made of shelf stable stuff. You'd be surprised what comes in a can now.

close, but no potato. Houston would be great. It has all kinds of helpful services...but not here.
If ya need stuff, there ought to be somebody brave enough to help you. drop stuff off, collect money in a nondescript and "clean" envelope if they need that and then they can run like heck and you can open the door.:eek:
