HHEEELLLLOOOOOOO the home alone thread.

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.

Some of us are still lurking about. When I have time for fly by posting, I do so. So crazy busy I can barely schedule time for sleep anymore. I think I'm down to about 4 hours a night.

And the door that holds out the bots shouldn't have a key. It should be welded shut and booby trapped.

Great! You get the gunpowder and I'll get the acid. We'll bring iced tea and burgers and make a picnic of it!

Another good idea. CR, you round up the trolls.

We might pick up a bit after school starts in the states, but I think this is going to be the state of TORC now. :( However,
with the few of us that still are around, maybe Jonathan could pop in and see if a few of us could step in and help out a bit, so Heliona doesn't have to do it all.

Am I was off topic? ;)

Hhhheeeellllllllooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Didn't see the eclipse. :(

I didn't have the special glasses, but I thought it might get really dark or something.

Nope. Just got hazy, then it rained. :roll:

The path of the next one in 2024 is supposed to go right over Cleveland, so I'll make sure I'm ready with the protective eyewear for that one.

Someone, I believe it was Iris, said we should invite everyone to an Eclipse Party.

Good idea! Start planning now, people. :D

No eclipse for me. Too busy to stop and bother looking. :hair: I took Monday off and, somehow, have managed by today to still get myself into overtime. It seems vacation is actually a losing bet around here. You just get punished when you get back.

It's too bad that TORC is so quiet. Seems folks have kind of filtered away after the movies.

It didn't really get dark here, but it dimmed some. I guess it probably doesn't really get dark unless you're in the path of totality, or very close to it, like Calma was.

Tooks thought we should have a party...we'll be in the path too...or pretty close...in 2024. Lord willing and the creeks don't rise. ;)

hamlet---I took Monday off too, but only because my sister and I had a yard sale that weekend, and I was still so exhausted I just couldn't get moving.

And yeah, I think you're right about being punished when you get back.

Iris---maybe me, you and Tooks (and anyone else who wanted to come) could find a good vantage point somewhere between Ohio and PA to watch the next eclipse. :D

Sounds cool! :D
I'm looking at maps. It looks like going to Ohio will be our better bet. :D

No one. Not what I had in mind at all.

Iris is right, it does look like Ohio would be the better bet.

Toby---what kind of fish are you keeping in your tank?

Mrs. H and I are already planning for the next eclipse in 2024. We plan to go . . . somewhere. Probably western Ohio or Indiana. Not going to even try for "best eclipse" somewhere in central Mexico.

Winter may not be officially here yet, but it is snowing and freezing cold, so it is officially miserable outside.

I'm just glad I don't have to stand at the bus stop in the very early hours of the morning anymore since I lost my job last October.

I don't miss the job-----I really, REALLY LIKE staying home-----I don't even miss my co-workers.

The only thing I really do miss is the steady paycheck.
