I can't imagine how long it would take to dust all that fancy woodwork.

Huzzah, Lucien!

My test knitters are being very complimentary about my sock pattern, and one of them is making three pairs for herself in different yarns. ;D

...  Yeah, it looks like it's upstairs in a little room you can only reach by going through a bedroom, then an ensuite, then the walk-in closet?! I'm not sure they could have picked a more inconvenient spot.

Actually the first floor plans show it to be fairly large and located between the kitchen and the garage entrance.  It almost looks like it has an odd 'hitch' in the wall that almost makes it seem like two separate spaces.

Ah! I missed that, I was looking at the utility room, but there's 'Laundry room' in nice big letters... that'll teach me to post before I have my tea!

Time For a Coffee Break! / Re: Strange Pot Luck Dishes

Sounds similar to the meatballs + chili sauce + grape jelly. (there are other similar combinations, some with the Lil Smokies sausages)  Sounds disgusting, but actually pretty good.

I had never heard of this until a few months ago at our quilting group's potluck! It's delicious, and I am making it for church next Sunday. I used some of my friend's mandarin jam on chicken - oh my, it was heaven. You guys are inspiring me to do other things now!

We did something I called "Weird Chicken".  It's whole berry cranberry sauce, french dressing (the sweet orange kind. catalina works too.), and dry onion soup mix stirred together and poured over chicken pieces (wing segments are great for a potluck). Bake for an hour.  Sounds gross, tastes great.

That sounds pretty good too!

Someone named Rosetta is giving out my mobile number as hers. I had two calls for her within 5 minutes, and one was from the county courthouse.  >:(

I've had this number for 15 years.

That has happened to me more than once and it makes me absolutely furious.  One time some fool asked me how long I had this number, I said, "since cell phones began!"

Sorry this is happening to you.

This is why every time I see someone say, "Oh, I always give a fake number." or "Just give a fake number for that!"  I cringe a little inside.  I fully understand why people give fake numbers to marketers, advertisers, loyalty programs, discount programs, surveys, etc. - it's just that every fake number is potentially someone else's real number, and sometimes there's no way to get off those lists once your number is on!
I was the victim of that.  I started getting calls for "Michael", up to 6/day.  I googled the number, end up at 800notes.com where I discovered the caller was the automobile finance unit of a bank.  Apparently Michael bought a car he didn't plan to pay for and gave a fake number on the loan application.  His fake number was my cell phone number.  I finally got the calls to stop by confronting the caller with that information.

My friend had memorized the number to the local Planned Parenthood, and would give out that number to pushy guys. Unfortunately, she blanked on her usual fake name and gave them my name once or twice.

This actually pales in comparison to some of the others that have been posted, but here for your viewing enjoyment, I present:

Home, sweet home.
Carpet only in the television room and the movie theater, a chaise longue right next to the kitchen, molding everywhere, bookcase next to the washer and a library of DVDs. So warm, so cozy.

looks like the typical "McMansion" to me.  if you look at the map, I am very unimpressed by the land surrounding it. for over $1 million I would want something with more acreage.

A quick google says that maybe there's something (like lint) stuck in your headphone jack.  They suggest using compressed air to blow it out.

 We're getting an absolute ton of rain here right now and it's about 110% humidity so it could be that or lint or something from my pocket.  I'll have to try the compressed air when I get to work tomorrow. Thank you so much

RE: myself, today -
Dabblers who decide to experiment may wind up with different results than they expected.

So having made 5 whole batches of soap in the last year (tongue firmly in cheek) I am obviously ready to try to use a weird ingredient that I can't find in any online recipes in my one google search. 

Soap making is chemistry.  Somehow red coloring and orangy-brown combined in a way to make deep, dark green.  Kale and Seaweed green.  Not unattractive, but definitely unexpected.  Also turned into foaming lava soap as I filled the mold. 

If it makes soap, I'll be happy and either way, I've definitely learned something....

I've just managed (via looking up the intended meaning, translating that, and then applying it to the original text) to translate a bit of very archaic poetry! ;D
