The TVM in vacationland!

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

There is something wrong with any individual who would hurt or kill another individual.

Regardless of the method. Guns, knives, homemade bombs, fists.



Sidd? Did you find that thread?

Great picture, Iris. :D

It's snowing here.
Probably not as bad as those on the East Coast
Still, it's a bit late in the season for snow.

Thankfully, it's not supposed to last.

Sorry, been awol for while. Things busy at work...also Dad has not been well. Hoping they can fix him once he gets to his specialist appointments.

On a good note, I have been blessed with a great hotel deal in London. A 4 star hotel has a sale (73% off) on Expedia and my friend and I snapped it up for an amazing price for Victoria area in London. It's the Grosvenor. Never in a million years did I ever see myself staying there. I have walked past often and thought how lovely it was from the outside, let alone the inside!

Good for you, Tooks! :thumbsup:

At least it's your decision to leave, you're not being booted out like I was.

Not that I mind being away from that miserable job and the almost equally miserable people.

I like staying home with my cats.

I still say the government should support all single women in the style to which they'd like to become accustomed. :D :D

Yesterday I caught the last hour of the movie "Revenge of The Sith." It started me thinking....

I don't remember which movie it was, but in one of them someone was calling Anakin "Ani."

Since his mother was dead and his father nonexistent, he was an orphan.

That made him Little Orphan Ani.

So Little Orphan Ani became Darth Vader.

Think about THAT if you will. :P

And I CANNOT possibly be the only person who ever thought of that!
