I just blocked a man who wouldn't stop messaging me on this site. Wtf is difficult to understand when I say, "Do not pm me."?

That was nice.

brilliant lol yes I dumped a couple of one-dimensional gun nuts myself.

ha! brilliant, @Donotbelieve; i did the same with someone just last night - very liberating 🙂

Just got home from playing with a group at a senior center. Part of them are from our celtic band, plus some who showed up. Nice to see people enjoy the music, sing along, and quite a few were up dancing.
Doesn't get much better than that.

i love music, singing (in the shower, in the choir & solo up stage) & daaaancing 🙂

Yes..took myself out for Sunday brunch..ordered classic Eggs Benedict..it was awesome! The eggs were perfectly poached..the canadian bacon smokey and juicy, the Hollandaise warm and enjoyably thick..mmmmm..ordered a slightly hoppy Canadian lager to go with it..really nice, clean finish..

Mmmmm!

@Donotbelieve it really was yummmm..unless you've worked a kitchen during brunch, you have no idea how difficult it is to get perfectly poached eggs..

@Charlene I have and I do.
Plus I LOVE Hollandaise sauce.

@Donotbelieve ..it's not complicated to make actually..and if you can make mayonnaise..you can make all of the Aise sauces..bernnaise sauce add tarragon..etc..

@Donotbelieve As the sous chef, I had to open the kitchen at 5:30 in the morning to prep up for brunch. We even served scratch buttermilk biscuits..uuuugh!

@Charlene I've worked in kitchens.
It's difficult work, but you learn a lot. I'm a much better cook for it.
Sound's like you are, as well.

@Donotbelieve I started out as a dishwasher..end up as exec..the only thing enjoyable about being exec is creating menus..I loved being in the kitchen..16 or 17 years in the oven..awesome!

@Charlene ooooo! Creating a menu does sound fun!
What's your best dish?

@Donotbelieve all of them..lol..a juicy handmade burger served medium (80/20) with shrooms,bacon and bluecheese with a side of handcut fries/onionrings..or if I'm wanting something a bit more upscale.. Broiled Halibut over scalloped potatoes topped with my green bbq sauce served with grilled asparagus or a Lamb tagine served over Rosemary couscous ( morrocan style)..my absolute fav is Grilled Veal chops(frenched) & roast yukon golds with sauted field greens and a bourbon truffle sauce..

@Charlene I'm salivating just reading in here... you'll need the bucket and mop if I'm at your table and presented that menu... Probably couldn't afford your prices.
Love truffles.

@FrayedBear I don't charge for entertaining friends..well, bring a bottle or 2 of a nice wine..or beer.

@Charlene Deal now about the airfare, passport and visa.... 😀 only kidding partly!

Painted my bathroom. I couldn't stand the color it was before.

KKGator Level 9 Feb 20, 2018

I need to paint my bathroom ceiling..it's flat white..should be semi-gloss..it sets up a moisture barrier..thanks for the reminder..

@Charlene You're welcome. It was a monumental pain in the ass, but I got it done.

@KKGator it is..but once done it looks great.

@Charlene It's definitely better than it was.

What does the English woman say after making love? " GEORGE the ceiling needs painting!"
😀

oh! did you finish it without painting yourself into a corner, @KKGator? 😉

@walklightly I did, thank you very much!!! It's laid out so weird, I couldn't have painted myself into a corner if I'd wanted to!

L 😀 L ! i'm glad, & happy for you, @KKGator.

@walklightly Thank you, sweetie!!! I appreciate that very much!

I saw this post/question earlier and I realized I haven't done much nice for myself lately, because I've been working a lot. So, I just took a nice hot bath in eucalyptus epsom salt and did a grapefruit "body scrub!"

Thanks for the inspiration! 🙂

It might sound silly to some, but I went vegan! For my health first and foremost, but also to help our planet and the beings we share it with. <3

I'm still in the testing it out phase, but it's been surprisingly easy so far and I don't have a good reason not to keep trying.

NicThePoet Level 7 Feb 20, 2018

Actually, if you don't mind, I would like to read updates on how that works out. I have many vego friends, and a couple of vegans, but that change is high on my list, I am currently a reducing carnivore.

@Rugglesby You would?? I wonder if anyone else would be interested as well. I don't want to be the stereotypical vegan who seems to always be talking about being vegan.

@WickedNicki Maybe start a group in here, that way the posts are only seen by those who are interested?

@Rugglesby That's a good idea. Thanks.

Walked 4 miles, but I do that every day. Finally got a writing again.

just last night i blocked & reported a woman who either doesn't understand the difference between arguing a case & attacking someone personally, or she simply is a nasty bully. i wasn't going to find out which. what a relief!

Quit smoking...and still being sick quit my job.

The former a no brainer...the latter, a bit more complicated.

I need to. I've been feeling kind of down today. I don't do many things for myself anymore.

Somebody did something nicely to me. Everything I do nicely for her, will in turn be nice to me... so in a bank shot angle... pool table speak... yeah. She returned, I didn't turn her away. I am a pool player too after all. And we got a pool room in this house. She is that bank shot I get the opportunity to do twice. And then again.... You can say I missed it the first time so what guarantee I got to make the shot this time around? But to allow myself to have that opportunity again is... Nice! Because in my life the Big Picture is in Ultra Super High Definition and I got the Remote Control even when not in view of the screen.

I hit the snooze button. Had a beer last night. Remembered my meds on a very stressful day. Slept well.

I just had a chocolate and today I bought 2 bottles of Zarraffas coconut syrup, Bad Rugglesby.

I bought myself something nice, this past week, that I had wanted for a while. I am so accustomed to doing things for everyone else, that I almost felt a twinge of guilt. Almost. I love that you asked. It is important, yet I find myself telling everyone else to take care of themselves, while I am not practicing what I preach--so to speak.

Yes I'm getting an acoustic guitar soon, then going to visit family before I travel the country again on Dead and company tour,If life gives you music, then make a song and a band out it. when I do nice things for myself,I try to make it spread to others to have something nice too, Music is the great communicator, imho..
