    Wait your turn!
    I haven't gotten to you yet.
    Hmm... 3 updates away, I think?


    <Gets in car. Drives south.>

    Not even all Canadians.
    This one doesn't.


    I don't like them.
    So, not worried that others don't.
    Some love 'em.
    Some hate 'em.


    You take that back!
    It's spelled "Neptunians".


    Sheesh.

    An accident?
    How so?


    :laughing:
    So that's what got
    his attention!

    I've earned it.
    Grey hair.
    What I have left anyways.


    I didn't come by that naturally,
    you know.


    I have.
    Just like Tea Cups.


    :laughing:
    Oops.

    I once had a video store
    call and ask if I'd returned
    a video.
    I had, and was prepared
    to fight with them when...
    "Okay. Just checking.
    We got broken into and a
    bunch of videos were stolen."


    The thought had crossed
    my mind.


    Banana? He slipped up?

    But still not as good.
    Ours have flavours like
    pomegranate or raspberry.
    Much better up here.


    It was!

    Greedy little alien.

    Hmm...
    I think you could argue
    that any country started it.
    I mean... it's not that
    weird or far-fetched an idea.


    Nope. I do purchase
    a text package before
    I go, though.


    :sad2:
    Still pretty upset
    that I messed that up.

    Come on down. I can find some good ice cream also.

    I stand corrected. Last week I sat corrected, but it was a very uncomfortable chair, so I'm standing this week...

    Neptunian.

    Oh?

    Your track record for good
    food has been pretty
    good so far...

    I'm actually just starting
    to toy with the idea
    of September.
    (after the schools
    have started up
    but while still nice out.)

    Not sure, but... thinking...


    I'm glad you stand by
    your convictions.



    Much better.

    I can make good on the bacon I forgot as well. DW told me there's a butcher near our new house. Want to take odds on how
    long befire I check it out?

    DisDads guest room should be good to go by then if you want to save some dough. If not, just make more bread.

    Oh great...now you want me to stand by my convictions too??

    Unless you're from the planet Nepton!

    Sweet... :)

    You're not there now?

    What do you think
    I'm doing right now????



    Better than being
    convicted or conflicted.



    Nope. Wrong solar system.

    Corning! I have been to that museum many years ago. My mom actually grew up in Corning.

    Cool!

    Tracy had a really cool story
    about a photo she was researching
    of a photo of a large mirror
    being brought in to the museum.

    And it turned out to be of...
    I think she said her grandfather.



    And... :welcome: to the TR!

    I don't know! I think our time together was just sucked into some dimension beyond... :sad2: We'll probably learn about it on ToT... if I ever brave it again :faint:

    YAY! Good work :thumbsup2 I agree ::yes::

    Awesome! :thumbsup2 I took a knitting class with my mom last winter. It was... hard... but I grew to love it. And yet, I haven't picked it back up since :laughing: It's on my "after I graduate" list come May though!

    Wow! I'm impressed! She did a great job :goodvibes

    Right?! I've worked here for over a decade and the mind of the artist continues to baffle me :laughing:

    :rotfl2:

    :rotfl2:

    I think your shoes probably announced your arrival before your mistaken demands did... :rolleyes1

    This picture is amazing!!!

    What?! What an amazing friend :goodvibes

    WOW!

    Uh oh... so sorry this didn't work out. At least with the GPS issue in Corning... the town is only so big. It'll mean your next meeting is all the better! And more anticipated :goodvibes

    ::yes::

    Well if you figure it out,
    let me know what happened!


    Check.
    When I come back
    that way, I will
    expect all the glass
    to have tea cozys
    knit for them.


    ::yes::

    :laughing:
    Perhaps.
    That and the constant
    grumbling.


    Love that shot.
    One of a couple
    of faves from that trip.


    ::yes::
    I am very lucky to have
    such wonderful friends.


    :goodvibes

    I like that!
    I must make this happen!


    ;)

    Staaaawp!!



    Wheeeee!!

    Oopsies!

    Very pretty!

    Nice!! Karma is sometimes delicious!

    Did you eat something that didn't agree with you? ;)

    Ah, I see loading up for more stops for gas.

    Glad you had such a nice time.

    Such a shame. I'm really sorry that happened. :( I'm honestly not sure if ice cream IS a just consolation.

    Sorry!
    (Not really)


    :lmao:
    Not sure if that's
    what I was feeling
    at the time, though.


    :sad2:
    Yeah...
    Dumb move.


    I thought so too.
    And that's thanks
    to Mark, who gave
    me a better route
    to follow, heading south.


    Delicious??
    This isn't revenge you know.
    (Best served cold.)


    I certainly did not.
    Nothing but the best
    from my friends
    recommendations.


    :laughing:

    I really did! :goodvibes

    Well... no.
    But it did help.

    Ugh. Total behindedness. Checking in. I didn't even get to comment on the previous update with the glass, and now I'm another whole update behind. Yes I saw him. He was jealous not to get any coffee crisps. Nice of her to get you that ice cream! Too bad about you guys being at two different restaurants. At least you had the ice cream for a pity party.

    Oh yeah, very nice hat!

    Haha! Probably not.

    Mark is such a dependable, nice guy. :)

    Good, you caught my slanted reference.

    I'd be fat(ter) if I did that every time I was out of sorts. :rotfl:

    That's okay, Alison.
    I know you've been
    very busy and are
    trying to catch up
    everywhere. :hug:


    He gets that way.
    Bit fanatical about
    chocolate.


    ::yes::

    Still pretty bummed
    about that. :(


    Thanks! :goodvibes

    Mine is glass breaking...


    uh, oh.

    Actually, my mom just
    gave me a nice piece.
    "You like glass?
    You wouldn't want that old..."

    "YES I WOULD!"

    Wow! That's an awesome gift!

    This would be a benefit if Nathan and I ever have children—he would have an excuse for his dad jokes.

    :laughing:

    Haha!

    According to the urban dictionary, "carion" is "Any kind of meat that you transport in you personal in-cabin luggage on an airplane." This made me chuckle.

    :laughing: Whoops!

    This feels so satisfying! I've never had the pleasure of watching some speeding goon get pulled over, but I always hold out hope.

    Wow! How thoughtful! ...and tasty!

    That's so unfortunate! I'm sure you both missed out here. But these things happen.
