Even just 20 mins. light sleep/rest helps me defrag after cram / before heading to exam. Upon rising I just skim material for revision - just to retrace the structure of the data chunks already crammed into memory wetware. Without sleep, I would skip revision and just get as far as I can.
Just saw this request, I'll see what I can do. Remind me if I don't deliver.
They just changed the wake to tomorrow. There is no way I can get down there.That's awful
FUCK THIS FUCKING SHIT I FUCKING HATE THIS THIS IS FUCKING BULLSHIT
I just called my Uncle, there's nothing they can do. It was out of most of their control. That is the time they could get, and since she's being interred next to my grandfather in Bethpage, they cannot have the burial on the weekend.
Wake is Thursday and Funeral is Friday. Full Catholic Service. *deep breath*
Rest easy, Gramma. Grampa Sal will be glad to see you after almost 40 years.
My sympathies. Will you be doing a rosary? Is that a thing outside of Latino Catholicism?
Mozzarella sticks are all glory and awesome. Man, I'd try that. I'd take some knitting and eat me some cheesy sticks with a fork so as not to get greasy fingers on my yarn and be rich and well knit and stuffed to bursting with cheese.
Also, I too have seen that Trivial Pursuit Ketchup thing and it is a lie.
I wouldn't be so fast on the draw until you've tried TGIF mozzarella sticks.
Also, I really want to know what her poop was like the next day.
I'm a weird food eater. Love me some tripe. Love me fish heads. Love me livers, hearts, and chicken feet.
The reason I've given haggi a pass is that it's sold as "oatmeal and parts in stomach" which I hear as "coppery blandness with the texture of cat food" which simply doesnt appeal.
Are there spices or herbs of any kind used?
>We've been known to turn perfectly good spam threads into meaningful discussions.
I don't even think it's a matter of that. Over the years lurking here, I've seen threads about a given topic morph into 10 other things. Can't cite anything specific at all, but I can recall many a times seeing a discussion of [X super serious politico-philosophic topic] turn into a discussion about [broken dildos, cat penises, the price of coal in china, etc].
That part happens on every forum I've been a part of. What is unique here IMO is the part Roger mentioned, the PD habit of redeeming a terrible thread simply via correct application of wit.
Personally I love that aspect, given my unfortunate tendency to knee-jerk and tantrum over every thread I create that does not get the response I was hoping for.
Wit is the best way of getting out of an unpleasant social situation.
It's not always possible, but when it is, it gives most people a way out of the situation with a shred of dignity intact.
