Just knocked about 8 pages. I get tired after like 10. I need glasses; I read like I'm shifting buckets of old mine dirt for rubies. Mentioning blank walls can't stand them, hell, I'll decoupage that sonofbitch to the wall. Like this nice 9X11 colour page from A BOOK of Livia's wall from the villa Prima Porta, ah, "View of the Garden" --OH, framed a nice detail the Melrose altarpiece, The Master of Flemale, drill in hand. So.

I just took all the songs suggested in the comments in the thread about NPRs list of essential women's songs from 2000-today and made a Spotify Playlist while my husband is at his band jam.

I just went to see Stomp, and it was amazing. Now I am going to drink wine and play boardgames and pretend tomorrow isn't a work day.

I finally saw The National last night here in Toronto and they were incredible. I love them so much.

A friend is doing the GISH (Greatest International Scavenger Hunt) thing. She’s fresh out of the hospital, and chafing under strict physical limitations, so unaccustomed for her, so sadly familiar to me. So I helped her out by providing one of the items on her list: a portrait of actor Jenson Ackles on watercolor paper, using only skittles soaked in water for paint.

It’s gleaming at me from the kitchen counter this morning. Stuff dried shiny. Skittles water is interesting to paint with. Multiple layers are tricky. The underlayers tend to reactivate and lift, so I had to go in with a bold hand for the darks and hope for the best. It was a fun challenge. And made my friend happy! So, worth it!

Steamship Authority, Island Queen or HyLine?

Steamship Authority. Walked too much in the heat. Visited the alpaca farm, where the teenagers tending the beasts were very patient and interesting. Ate a damn fine lobster roll at Sandy’s Fish & Chip’s. Ate good lemon sorbet at the Carousel ice cream place. Bought a t-shirt. Was amazed to find two super-friendly, super-helpful bus drivers on VTA buses.

My friends, that was a much easier, much more fun day trip than I expected, and I want to go back!

i've been a member of this site since like 2004 and i have no idea what the '#1 quidnunc' thing people are always saying means. i checked the "in jokes" part of the wiki and everything. can someone please tell me? i really have to go to sleep now though but my only wish is that i will wake up tomorrow to an answer.
a really nice cup of coffee would be good too but an answer to the quidnunc mystery would be even better

The Quidnunc kid is a long time MeFite. He is, for all intents and purposes, #1. At least that's what he tells us.

Oh wow, Nancy_LockIsLit_Palmer, that's gorgeous! I tried doing that challenge and, uh, yours is about eighteen thousand million times better than my effort. I could not for the life of me manage to get Skittles paint to work. Lovely likeness!

This post will either make things more or less clear.
