What's up guys? Long time no see.

I finally learned how to juggle 4 balls. Working up to 6 now and skipping 5.

Yesterday I was busy cooking in the kitchen and I suddenly hear the sound of a Starcraft game blasting in the living room. I have no computer in my living room and my kids are on strict parental control anyway. So I sneak into the room to find out what's going on... What do I find ? My kids reading on the sofa listening to the game's original soundtrack on Spotify...
It's amazing the kind of resources traumatized kids will find in order to quench their thirst for technology.

I just noticed you used the word ixnay. Is there a French word for ixnay?

Reason I ask is it's not an English word, it's pig Latin. To speak Pig Latin, move the consonant cluster from the start of the word to the end of the word; when words begin on a vowel, simply add "-yay", "-way", or "-ay" to the end instead. These are the basic rules, and while they're pretty simple, it can take a bit of practice to get used to them.

ixnay = nix, which means expressing denial or refusal, put an end to; cancel, reject, veto.

Oddly enough, in teaching myself to juggle, I figured I had to learn 2 balls in one hand first. So I learned this in both hands, and was juggling 4 my first day. Not the half shower or cascade, but a variation of "forks."

So you'll be doing 3 in each hand! Great trick!

thieum,

It's so unfortunate when this happens, and they are guests in your own home! Before you estrange your cousin, you might try telling him to cut it out! People with different values can get along and even love each other.

Kelly Anne Conway, Trump press secretary, is married to a vocal anti-Trump guy. They love and respect each others ideas, despite disagreeing on values for our nation.

Basically they ride along the Seine and stop at every bridge to drink Rhum arrangé, and there's a lot of freaking bridges in Paris...
YES!! Next time I hope they post a video!!!

Somehow I think a good incendiary bomb will do its job no matter what. When the USA bombed Dresden, it probably would have done damage even if in a hurricane rain, no? (Even though Dresden does not get hurricanes....)

Wow.

How do you get through a holiday meal?

Do you ever want to help those obnoxious people learn to be nice?

Definitely a tough row to hoe.

What irritates me more than people not being particularly admirable is when they want to claim credit for being so. To hear some people praise themselves, or criticize others, you'd think they would be holding themselves to a high standard indeed. Yet many of the most self-satisfied and cocksure people I've known were among the least interested in holding themselves to any kind of serious account.
then it serves them right that they cannot get elected to any public office!!

Do you have the famous saying: You can pick your friends and you can pick your nose, but you can't pick your family.
