  1. I had a house- & cat-sitter once who decided to try training my cat by putting him in the "bad kitty corner" every time he misbehaved. I'm sure that would work for you and the three cats. Please try and let us know how it goes! I'm glad you are talking to Mantis even though there are still some underlying hurt. I think the purple looks ok. What I really remember about underwater hockey was the weird moves people use to guard the puck. They curl their body and kind of circle around it. It reminded me of being a human eel or something.
  2. Great that you are here! And yes, definitely still time for a strong finish!
  3. more fun versions of that same thing... chicken burrito bowl (or just regular chicken burrito, but it sounds like you are trying to limit carbs) greek chicken with tzatziki (using that same yogurt) kung pao chicken (chicken, veggies, nuts etc) smoothie instead of the fruit and yogurt curried chicken salad (chicken, celery, maybe some carrots and raisins, cashews, some spices, mix in the yogurt, maybe have it over a bed of lettuce)

    I'm so sorry to hear about all the hurt you have been experiencing.

    I usually try to make it less scary by just picking a piece to work on. Smaller goal. For me, I tend to do better with sticking to plans (food, exercise, whatever) early in the week. Then it degenerates a bit and I have to re-set. I think it can work to build a little chaos (or flexibility, depending on how you look at it) into your goals.
  6. is that an underwater luchador too? Or just a regular luchador and underwater photographer? Have you ever played underwater hockey? I played once and it was kind of like battle royale. Back when I was a high school swimmer, they used to let us play a little water polo for fun on Fridays. That also had some combat elements. So please sign me up for the underwater luchador league if you are building one. I think it might be what I've been training for all these years.
  7. I'm sorry about the tragedy in your town.

    Yesterday, while out running I saw a woman wearing a camouflage baseball hat (I also just learned that I didn't know how to spell camouflage). Otherwise my most interesting sighting was a guy doing some kind of ruck run (wearing a big pack and boots). I wondered if he was doing some kind of actual military training or just entertaining himself. Today I got passed by an older guy who was moving pretty quickly, but reasonably close to my pace. I decided to use it as an excuse to pick up my pace a little and try to stay a constant(ish) distance from him. As I was doing this, it occurred to me that he wasn't wearing a shirt, so we have more or less gone back to my original challenge goal of chasing shirtless men. btw, yesterday I finished my 50 negative goal. I'm feeling sore today!

    Thank you both!! Today was a swampy sweaty long run. Got in 13 miles, mostly on the trail. It was not very pleasant, but I did it running slowly and Galloway style (walk 1 min every 10 minutes), so it was sustainable. A saw a guy on the trail carrying a fishing pole. Counting that as "someone fishing" Ordered myself a hydroponic garden kit yesterday as a treat. I've wanted one for a long time. Several years back, I found one marked down and gave it to my brother for Christmas. I REALLY wanted to keep it for myself. Every year I half-hoped he would think it was a good thing to get for me. Finally got my own. Going to use it to grow some herbs. Of course I have some outside right now, but that will only be for a couple more months. My house doesn't get enough light inside to grow much come fall/winter. Thought it would be fun to see how this thing works (after I see how the fancy pre-made one works, it might be fun to try the much cheaper DIY route for a second). I always get annoyed when recipes call for little springs of several different fresh herbs. I feel wasteful buying them, so now maybe I'll have my own. Also fits into the category of "how to entertain yourself while socially distancing."
  10. Thanks for looking! I like the idea. It's fun to look around and think about things that should be on the bingo card 🙂
  11. Yeah. Not sure what to recommend...I have strong conflict avoidance tendencies. You've had so much shit going on lately, that I just really want the people around you to shape up and be supportive.I wouldn't actually shoot anyone, but it seems like some menacing whip cracking may be needed.

    Sorry about the insomnia, but pie crust looks good 🙂

    Thanks! It did. I'm really happy with it. I saw the color in a magazine when I was visiting my mom over Christmas. It perfectly matches the drapes on the other side of the room.
  14. Wow, this is like a wrecking ball full of suck. Mantis seems like he is usually a better friend than this. Dropping someone on an unfamiliar trail is not cool. Do you think he has any sense that he screwed up?
