Tropical_Willie's avatar

No, just balding.

TJBM is looking forward to this evening.

Yup.
After a whole 24 hours of searching (I found @rebbel, he wants me to let you all know that he didn’t fell off off the seawall) I am in dire need of a relaxed evening.

TJBM works in retail, too. And likes it?

cookieman's avatar

Nope, but I did for two years (age 15 to 17). I liked it and it kept me away from food service jobs.

cookieman's avatar

False. I need a bigger screen.

Does a Dr’s appointment count?

TJBM has been more than 500 miles from where they live in the last year.

Dutchess_III's avatar

No, I haven’t. Hopefully we’ll be going to Salina some time this week, but it’s only about 100 miles away. But good enough for me. Get me out of the house.

TJBM needs to see a dentist.

Strauss's avatar

Yes, I haven’t been to one in over 10 years. I just broke a molar and the filling fell out. No pain, though.

TJBM has a (or several) pet(s).

RandomGirl's avatar

Yep. Shi Tzu/Pomeranian/Cairn Terrier mix. He’s 50 lbs of energy packed into a 12 lb body.

TJBM knows how we got lb out of the word pound.

Strauss's avatar

It comes from the Latin libra; the name pound is a Germanic adaptation of the Latin phrase libra pondo, ‘a pound by weight’.

TJBM knows the origin of the phrase ”...a pound of flesh”.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I do now! Shakespear.

TJBM wishes it would just rain already.

RandomGirl's avatar

Yes. It’s been threatening all day/weekend. :P

LezboPirate is my sister. She isn’t around much anymore, though. JoeyOhSoClever is one of my best friends. :)
Tjbm will tell us their favorite animal.

OpryLeigh's avatar

TJBM has heard of subsonic vibrations.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I’ve heard OF them, yes.

TJBM can hear (or used to be able to hear) the really high pitched whine of security cameras located in stores.

Strauss's avatar

Yes, used to be able to hear the high-pitches, until my tinnitus got too intense.

TJBM has tinnitus.

Dutchess_III's avatar

No, but my husband says he does, but I can’t hear it so I’ll just take his word for it.

TJBM has ears like a hawk.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

It’s eyes like a hawk and ears like a rabbit. Have wear glasses and I’ve got tinnitus.

TJBM is waiting for Spring. We missed it here, 87* F today.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Where are you? I can’t see you. Did you say something? I can’t hear you!

Spring stopped by for a couple of days. Now it’s raining and the rain is freezing. It’ll probably by 90 tomorrow.

TJBM doesn’t have any food in the house.

RandomGirl's avatar

I hope we do. We’re leaving an hour and I need food before then!

TJBM is doing something they probably shouldn’t.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yeah. Which is nothing.

TJBM has 50 gazillion pictures, mostly of their kids, on the computer.

Bluefreedom's avatar

Not really. I don’t have any children of my own but I do own a really nice digtial camera which I don’t use often enough. You would think that I’d be out there more often accumulating a lot more pics. I’ll work on that.

TJBM prefers drinking coffee rather than tea.

AshLeigh's avatar

Negative.
Tjbm is in love.

OpryLeigh's avatar

Yes

TJBM can hear rain at the moment.

RandomGirl's avatar

I wish. Nope, right now I’m all snuggled up, watching 2 inches of snow an hour come down oh-so-silently. Right now, spring is just as much a myth as unicorns.

TJBM is in awe of this. I can’t stop looking at the pictures…

Bluefreedom's avatar

It’s true. I am often amazed and sometimes shocked at the power of Mother Nature and how it can so forcefully affect the people and environments we live in.

TJBM rarely gets sick but sometimes uses that excuse to get out of a day of work.

Strauss's avatar

Used to, can’t use it anymore, though. I’m retired and mom works, leaving me to be the homemaker, and to supervise the 13-yr old when she’s not at school.

TJBM still has some green under the snow.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yes. And under the ice too.

TJBM likes her dogs.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

His/Her dogs, love’em.

Dutchess_III's avatar

That sounds good!

TJBM is craving some jalapeno poppers!

RandomGirl's avatar

Ooh, yes.

TJBM feels like they’re spinning their wheels.

Dutchess_III's avatar

No. I’m just sitting.

TJBM wants to get away for a while.

Bluefreedom's avatar

Very true. I’m on my 11th work day in a row and it’s time for some R&R. At least I have the upcoming weekend off. I need the rest.

TJBM has never vacationed in Europe but really, really wants to.

Dutchess_III's avatar

True and true.

TJBM has family video on VHS that he or she needs to get put to DVD.

genjgal's avatar

I suppose so, though I didn’t have that in the forefront of my mind.

TJBM has never dieted. :P

RandomGirl's avatar

Not really.

It’s still not over for TJBM…

AshLeigh's avatar

It’s not?
Tjbm is hungry.

Bluefreedom's avatar

I’m getting hungry. It’s currently 5:10 a.m. at work and I’m just starting my duty shift.

TJBM prefers waking up to the sound of music as opposed to the sound of a traditional alarm clock ringing or buzzer.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Well…I do wake up to the sound of music. It’s my cell phone, at full blast, screaming Rush’s intro to “Tom Sawyer”...”BOWWWWW BOWWWWWwwwww wwww TODAY’S TOM SAWYER HAS MEAN MEAN PRIDE!!!BOWWWWW BOWWWWwwwww wwwwBOWWWWW BOWWWWWwwwww wwwwBOWWWWW BOWWWWWwwwww wwww
– I love that song, man!

TJBM loves elevator music.

AshLeigh's avatar

No. Haha.
Tjbm wants to rock down to electric avenue.

Dutchess_III's avatar

:) I love that song too! My daughter was little when it came out. She sang, “We gonna rock down to..electric avaluke!” :)

TJBM has sung a song for years without even understanding what the lyrics were Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress comes to mind, for me!

AshLeigh's avatar

Don’t go out tonight. It’s sure to take your life. There’s a bathroom on the right.
Tjbm needs a haircut.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Bahhahahaha! Bathroom on the right!

Yes, yes I do. I’ll do it tonight after about 3 beers. That’s when I do my best work.

TJBM has a HS graduation that he or she really wants to get to in a couple of months, but probably won’t be able to.

dxs's avatar

I sure hope I will saying as it will be mine.
The Jelly Below me dreads going to college graduations, however.

dxs (15160points)“Great Answer” (1points)
RandomGirl's avatar

Oh boy, do I! My brother’s friends all graduated at the same time about 3 years ago. That was torture. Who actually enjoys 3 hours of awkwardness?! 0.o

TJBM has something they wish could happen tomorrow, but won’t for weeks. I finally have an appointment to see a neurologist next month.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yeah…dentist, but can’t get me in until July. WTH is up with that? But man…that’s nothing compared to a neurologist…that sounds scary @RandomGirl

TJBM has found out that most of the time things work out OK.

RandomGirl's avatar

I have! Over the last few months, I’ve had several times when I’ve thought life as I knew it was going to come to an end – but my fears have been relieved.

TJBM likes weird food combinations. My dad enjoys refried beans on his pancakes. With pancake syrup.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Um…I can’t think of any “weird” combinations I like! Jalapeno pepper and cream cheese, maybe. But that’s not weird, is it?

TJBM just wishes life would stabilize.

AshLeigh's avatar

Yes.
Tjbm is conflicted.

Strauss's avatar

Yeah. I am hearing about the Boston explosions and need to get some stuff done around here.

TJBM knows someone in Boston, visiting or living there.

RandomGirl's avatar

Nope, which I’m sort of thankful for.

TJBM is indulging tonight.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yeah. Trying not to get too pissed,.

TJBM wonders, “Was the point proven?”

Strauss's avatar

It depends on what the point is.

TJBM knows what the point is.

@Dutchess_III is that as in pissed off or pissed up?

Dutchess_III's avatar

Just pissed in general!
I do not know what the point is. I will never know.

TJBM was doing alright today, but now he or she is kind of sad and depressed.

RandomGirl's avatar

Nope – that’s backwards. This morning, I was feeling stuck and like I was in a fog (which is how I’ve been feeling for weeks). But tomorrow I’m taking an important test for college this fall, and that idea kind of jolted me out of it, so I can do test prep stuff and get on with life. Thank goodness! I’m feeling the best I’ve felt in weeks!!

TJBM can relate to my brain fog.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Absolutely I can relate.

TJMB is eating chocolate chips.

Strauss's avatar

Nope! Finished ‘em this morning .

TJBM is emotionally drained from the events of the past days.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yes. Events of the past 3 weeks.

TJBM is wondering why we want to stay in bed when it’s raining.

AshLeigh's avatar

Nah, I want to stay in bed no matter what the weather is like. XD
Tjbm wonders of angry people know about naps?

RandomGirl's avatar

Oh I do. When the world leaves me wondering “What the…?!”, my response is to take a nap.

TJBM is glad it’s finally over.

AshLeigh's avatar

Yes. Not sure that we’re talking about the same thing, but yes.
Tjbm likes to hold babies :D

OpryLeigh's avatar

Yes I do.

TJBM loves babies but prefers puppies :D

Dutchess_III's avatar

I do. I can put the puppies in the bathroom if I need to. And I’m not required to carry them around with me every where I go. :)

TJBM is ready to go back to bed.

RandomGirl's avatar

I am. We’re out of town for a convention for a few days, and I’m just looking forward to sleeping in this nice bed.

TJBM is planning a getaway soon.

TJBM is missing someone. I’m at a conference, and my schedule is completely incompatible with my friend’s… And I hardly ever see him… And I was so looking forward to this weekend with at least a few hours. So much for that. :/

AshLeigh's avatar

True.
Tjbm is really glad it’s finally the weekend :)

Strauss's avatar

Oh hell, yeah!

TJBM is glad the weather will finally let them get out into their garden.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Not yet.

TJBM thinks this is the longest winter EVER.

AshLeigh's avatar

tups's avatar

I wish my mind were simpler so life could be simpler.

TJBM is simple.

Mr_Paradox's avatar

I wish
TJBM wants a dose of heart attack on a stick

RandomGirl's avatar

Well, if you put it that way…

TJBM has had odd things deep fried and on a stick. Deep-fried-candy-bar-on-a-stick, anyone? How about spaghetti-on-a-stick? Deep-fried-pickle-on-a-stick? This is Minnesota State Fair stuff right here ;)

Mr_Paradox's avatar

Dutchess_III's avatar

“the alphabet backwards.” Why yes, yes I can!

TJBM is about to change from sweats to shorts.

AshLeigh's avatar

Jeans. School. Gonna put on pajamas when I get home:)
Tjbm loves pajamas.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I haven’t had “pajamas,” per say, in years and years. When I get home from work I put on slick pants and a t shirt. If it’s cold, that’s what I wear to bed and I’ll wear them the next day, until I need to go out and about. But..yes. I love comfortable clothes.

TJBM needs to wash the dog today.

geeky_mama's avatar

True enough..our dog could use a bath nearly every day. He’s just kinda smelly

TJBM can drive by faith alone.

Strauss's avatar

No, but there were times in my youth I swore my car knew the way home when I was too wasted to be driving (behavior definitely not recommended!)

TJBM has had an emotional encounter on Fluther or similar on-line boards.

RandomGirl's avatar

Not exactly.

TJBM is having a busy, stressful week.

geeky_mama's avatar

Just busy, not too stressful. I’m in Florida for work and the weather sure beats the weather at home!

TJBM has pretty painted toenails and wants to show them off.

Couldn’t be farther from the truth! Could benefit from a good pedi, but that will probably never happen!

No, but I’m awaitin’ the Cicadas and there a comin’.

TJBM remembers more than one return of the 17 year Cicadas. Like maybe three.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I don’t know what a 17 year cicada is…?

TJBM is trying to decide what time she should start her 3 hour bread so it won’t be screwed up by leaving it alone for 20 minutes while she gets the kids from school.

Strauss's avatar

No, but if I were that jelly, she would start the 3 hour bread 3 hours before she had to leave to get the kids. Otherwise, wait until they’re home and start it for tomorrow.

TJBM has a breadmaker.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yes, I do have a bread maker. (That was my logic originally, but part of what is included in that 3 hours is the baking time, but I’m making rolls instead so that baking time is a less than for the 1 hour required for a loaf of bread and if I’m not careful I’ll be leaving just as they start baking. It is very complicated! I’ve settled on…1:30. But I still am not sure….)

TJBM finds some things to be very complicated even when they’re not.

AshLeigh's avatar

Cooking xD
Tjbm is a hard worker.

RandomGirl's avatar

When I have motivation, yes. But when I’m just trying to fill time, finding work to do, until I get off work, then I get really lazy and sluggish. :p

TJBM uses a lot of emoticons.

nope

Yes I do,and I don’t know why.

TJBM wants to share her mom’s bead recipe with me. Yes that bread!

TJBM is putting off work in order to fluther.

AshLeigh's avatar

reijinni's avatar

not really
TJBM wears depends.

AshLeigh's avatar

Every day.
Tjbm is old.

RandomGirl's avatar

No, although sometimes I feel like it. Seriously… If you’re going to drop off the face of the earth and then suddenly reappear years later, please appear the same when you reappear. Otherwise, I really feel old.

TJBM has recently had blood drawn. Five tubes of the stuff for about a bajillion different tests today!

Bluefreedom's avatar

Kind of. The last time was about 3 months ago and I’m due again in about a month. Have to have blood draws quarterly for my diabetic endocrinology appointments. Only 2 tubes at a time though.

TJBM has never been on a cruise but would like to take one someday.
Just don’t use Carnival Cruise Lines. They’re not doing so hot lately.

Mr_Paradox's avatar

Yes, in fact I am planning on taking one in a few weeks. I would do it sooner but I just got teeth pulled.
TJBM wishes they couldn’t feel pain right about now.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Fortunately, I’m not hurting anywhere.

TJBM needs to take a shower.

dxs's avatar

That is true. But I am not going anywhere special today, so I’d rather save water and wait until tomorrow.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Sorta, kinda. Not rabid about it tho.

TJBM should be doing Something Else right now.

tups's avatar

YES!

TJBM wishes that all of their duties would disappear.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Not disappear….get done magically so I could relax and feel productive.

TJBM is trying to invent a new toilet paper roll holder.

Headhurts's avatar

True – one that speaks and says ” replace me when empty”!

TJBM is guilty of not doing the above?

Dutchess_III's avatar

ALL of the above? That’s a LOT of not doing!

TJBM wants to send me a picture of her new and improved toilet roll holder when she is finished with it.

Headhurts's avatar

@ dutchess 111 no, the above line in my post

RandomGirl's avatar

I think @Headhurts would probably send it to you once she gets a patent on it. Because, you know, something like that would get snatched up immediately!

TJBM is very thankful for the Fluther community. I am. I love my jellies!

Dutchess_III's avatar

I am VERY thankful for the Fluther community. I love being here.

TJBM wants talking toilet paper.

reijinni's avatar

nope
TJBM wants recipe ideas printed on toilet paper.

geeky_mama's avatar

No thanks. I’m not thinking about eating/food when I’m using TP.

TJBM is baking something yummy.

Headhurts's avatar

I made a Victoria Sponge this afternoon, and it was very yummy.

TJBM wants to be sandwiched in the middle if a Victoria Sponge.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Is a Victoria Sponge anything like a jelly fish?

TJBM is going to go eat the last piece of cream cheese cake.

Dutchess_III's avatar

nope.
TJBM is going to Camp Granada

Dutchess_III's avatar

Nooooo.

TJBM loves crab legs.

RandomGirl's avatar

Nooooo.

TJBM had a sleepy Sunday afternoon.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yesssss. Got the kitchen clean. That’s about it.

TJBM is absolutely stuffed full.

reijinni's avatar

maybe
TJBM is planning on wearing Google Glass.

Strauss's avatar

Probably not, but not out of the question.

TJBM is having a very productive Monday.

tups's avatar

Actually it has been far more productive than I had expected and far more lovely.

TJBM’s day was better than they expected.

RandomGirl's avatar

Nope. I’ve had to take two naps already. Work is going to be a joy. :/

TJBM is doing that earbuds-in-the-ears-even-though-they’re-not-listening-to-anything thing. I am.

Dutchess_III's avatar

No.

TJBM is looking at her dog thinking he needs a bath, BAD!

Bluefreedom's avatar

In a word, no. TJBY is looking at his watch wondering why his duty shift is taking forever to end.

TJBM yearns to go on a camping trip or some kind of vacation and get away from it all. Immediately.

Dutchess_III's avatar

YES!! OMG, yes.

TJBM wonders where @Judi is.

Strauss's avatar

Not until you mentioned it, but yeah!

TJBM sometimes wonders about formerly active jellies from whom we haven’t heard in quite a while.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yes. Like Red Power Lady. It always freaks me out when I click on a question, not realizing it is two or three years old, and see Jellies from so long ago.

TJBM thinks Auggie is getting even with us for screwing around the other day when she wasn’t looking Response moderated (Off topic)

Strauss's avatar

@Dutchess_III Psst! Careful, “Big ‘A’” is watching! What’s your “TJBM” statement?”

Dutchess_III's avatar

I know she is! ok. I’ll be good.

TJBM doesn’t get moderated very often but when he/or she does he or she feels like a 4 year old who just got swatted! And he or she HATES it!

RandomGirl's avatar

Sort of, yes!

TJBM is perfectly reasonable and rational, at all times.

geeky_mama's avatar

Ha! I struggle for reasonable and rational about 50% of the time. ;)

TJBM is on the road again.

Strauss's avatar

I wish! Used to be a lifestyle until about 25 years ago, when I settled down and got married.

TJBM has an anniversary coming up.

AshLeigh's avatar

I don’t.
Tjbm is in love with a pretty pistol.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Well..yeah. She’s 16 months old. :D

TJBM would never have a handgun in the house.

tups's avatar

No and it would also be highly illegal.

TJBM likes guns.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I enjoy shooting at targets and would love to skeet shoot sometimes, but I would never have a handgun in my house, anywhere. When we move to the country we’ll probably get a 22 for da varmints.

TJBM is cleaning out files now, and wondering why she or he bought 20 packages of tiny stickers that you print pictures on.

RandomGirl's avatar

Nope.

TJBM is having a busy day and has no idea how they’re going to get everything done.

Strauss's avatar

True, and my fluthering is not helping the situation~!

TJBM is going to get something outside done before the weather turns.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Too late!

TJBM wonders why some people ask the questions they do.

tups's avatar

Yes, seems like a lot of questions are quite rhetorical.

TJBM considers themselves lucky.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I am. I’m at a low spot in my life again, but I have to remember that I am very lucky.

TJBM is discovering stuff they didn’t know they had.

reijinni's avatar

every once in a while
TJBM plans on hitchhiking.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Newp. Heard too many horror stories in the 60’s and 70’s about hitchhikers!

TJBM wonders if they should go to the doctor’s.

Strauss's avatar

No, I know I should see a doctor soon, but I’m waiting for my Medicare to kick in in October.

TJBM wishes s/he could afford early retirement.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Not really. I like schedules.

TJBM has been reduced to eating boxed Mac and Cheese because there isn’t anything else here!

reijinni's avatar

nope
TJBM is refilling their shelves tomorrow.

Strauss's avatar

Nope, shelves were filled last week, first of the month.

TJBM likes the weather today.

RandomGirl's avatar

Haven’t been out in it yet. Busy with school. :/

TJBM is tired.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yes. It was raining and thundering this morning. That makes me tired!

TJBM is FINALLY getting into Spring!

AshLeigh's avatar

It’s pretty muddy from all the melting snow.
Tjbm doesn’t like mud.

reijinni's avatar

I really don’t like walking on soggy ground.
TJBM is sticking to sneakers this spring.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Or barefeet where I can get away with it. :)

TJBM has bad eating habits.

AshLeigh's avatar

Of course.
Tjbm doesn’t feel well.

RandomGirl's avatar

Yep.

TJBM had a treat today.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Not yet. And I’m starving.

TJBM has a room they’re making over.

geeky_mama's avatar

Sort of. I’ve been adjusting my home-office and now it looks like this…but I still want to paint my office a different color (it’s the original color the previous owners of our house painted it..). We’ve been slowly repainting and removing wallpaper..

TJBM burns incense around the house.

Dutchess_III's avatar

….Is that a treadmill under your desk? Do you take walks without ever leaving your chair? :)

I would burn incense but I don’t have any.

TJBM has tried to recreate McD’s Egg McMuffin with no luck.

geeky_mama's avatar

Nope, I have no love for MickyD’s EggMcMuffin. Haven’t tried to make one.

@Dutchess_III yes indeed, that is a treadmill under my desk, controls on my desktop. I force myself to get 10,000 steps per day before I’m allowed to lower the desk & sit in my office chair each workday at home.

TJBM is ready to plant their annuals this weekend. Yay, flowers!

Dutchess_III's avatar

YES! Yay flowers!!

TJBM has a young grandson in first grade who can tell you everything you ever wanted to know about the solar system.

RandomGirl's avatar

Nope… But I have a sister in the seventh grade who can tell you anything you could ever want to know about the Civil War!

TJBM has problems with transportation. Right now, I don’t know how I’m getting home from work this evening!

Dutchess_III's avatar

I would come get you but I don’t know where you are. Even if you told me where you were I still wouldn’t know.

The only problem with transportation right now is me getting up off my butt and getting into the car!

TJBM lives within walking distance of work.

Strauss's avatar

Yes, 5 steps to the stairs and 8 steps down, and I’m still home, now that I’m retired!

Strauss's avatar

OOPs! missed the edit window!

TJBM thinks I had another senior moment.

Dutchess_III's avatar

…It seemed sophomoric, than seniorish, to me. HA AHAHAHAHAAAA!!!!!!!!! Ok. It wasn’t that funny. :)

TJBM wishes they had a self loading and emptying dish washer.

reijinni's avatar

perhaps
TJBM would be driving only if they had the willpower to do the road test.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I had the willpower a long time ago.

About an hour ago a van crashed into the lobby at the McDonalds in the town TJBM lives in.

RandomGirl's avatar

Umm nope. A drunk guy rammed through the DQ in town here last fall, though.

TJBM is waiting.

Bluefreedom's avatar

Yes. I am waiting, impatiently, for my 8 hour duty shift to end so that I can begin to enjoy a 3 day weekend.

TJBM hasn’t been to the movies in a while and would like to go see a new release.
But doesn’t want to pay the exorbitant price for the ticket and concession stand offerings.

OpryLeigh's avatar

True

TJBM went to a concert this week.

RandomGirl's avatar

Nope.
TJBM has a cold.

Dutchess_III's avatar

No, but I am freezing.

TJBM predicts that Trop Willie will respond next.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Maybe . . . yes. maybe . . . . . no. . . .
let me look. YUP

TJBM has outside errands to do, mow the lawn, trim the bushes . .

Dutchess_III's avatar

Hopefully my husband will do that. I have a ton of inside errands to do, preparing for a big family dinner tomorrow.

TJBM can’t ever get the whole family together in one spot at the same time.

Strauss's avatar

If you talk about my siblings, it’s difficult. We are spread all over the coast, literally from coast to coast and border to border. We’re working on a reunion sometime later this year. I’m not sure…In my own family, the youngest is still at home, and the older two are in the area, but we still can’t all get to once place at the same time…Oh, well…

@Dutchess_III almost sounds like a Tyler Perry movie!

TJBM is enjoying the weather.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I am. It’s beautiful. A bit on the chilly side, but I’m still leaving all the doors and windows open.

TJBM knows what to do in case of a tornado.

dxs's avatar

Saying as I’m from the Northeast, I wouldn’t be ready. I’d probably go somewhere underground.
The Jelly below me is enjoying this warm weather.

genjgal's avatar

What warm weather? Frost tonight. At least it’s not snowing.

TJBM has read section 4–12 in Army Command Policy. (yeah I have)

RandomGirl's avatar

Umm no…? Why have you been reading Army Command Policy? I’m already laughing at the possible backstory here.

TJBM goes through phases of high activity on Fluther and then phases of ghostly absence.

genjgal's avatar

Sort of. Not really.

[lol…see my last question and you might know]

TJBM is studying in depth on how to write bills.

RandomGirl's avatar

I will be soon, after I’m done with basically all of school.

TJBM skis. Downhill, cross-country, or water?

genjgal's avatar

Nope. Only been downhill skiing once in my life.
TJBM is terrified of boats with motors. Particularly speed boats.

RandomGirl's avatar

Not really. I’ve been on them a few times in my life, and I’ve always been bored and cold. So the thought of being on a motorized boat just makes me think, “oh goody…”

TJBM finds the back-and-forth between @genjgal and myself has been interesting.

dxs's avatar

‘Tis absurdity.
The Jelly below me wants to stop this back and forth madness.

dxs (15160points)“Great Answer” (0points)
genjgal's avatar

Can’t say I reckon so.

TJBM just watched 5 movies in a series in the last 24 hours.

dxs's avatar

I probably haven’t even watched 5 movies in 24 fortnights.
The Jelly below absolutely loves the outdoors and spends a ton of time outside.

dxs (15160points)“Great Answer” (0points)
genjgal's avatar

No, I like it but not that much.
TJBM plays violin.

RandomGirl's avatar

Nope – piano.

TJBM is about to get in the shower.

genjgal's avatar

in about an hour i will
TJBM needs to wash their sheets.

geeky_mama's avatar

True – but I’ve been holding off for a warm, sunny day to hang them outside on the line to dry.

TJBM loves the smell of sheets that have dried outside in the sunshine.

RandomGirl's avatar

Oh my goodness YES! It’s the most soothing, stress-relieving thing scent there is!

TJBM has forgotten to take their glasses off before getting in the shower. I didn’t remember to take mine off until I put my fingers up past my ears to get my hair soaked!

genjgal's avatar

yes actually back when I wore them. they are so annoying…
TJBM thinks life is easier now.

Dutchess_III's avatar

It was easier until I lost my job. But my husband has a good job so it IS still easier now than it was when I was a single mom.

TJBM is getting special treatment for Mum’s Day.

RandomGirl's avatar

Well, I’m not a mother, so not for Mother’s Day, but I am being pampered a bit. I injured my right hand (I’m right handed) somehow practicing piano yesterday. My hand is out of commission and I can’t do much. :/

TJBM has a funny injury they’ll tell me about.

Strauss's avatar

I do! Here’s the scenario: Open pasture, about sixty teenagers and forty adults. Place two bales of hay on end at either end of the field; Three rules: 1. No closed fists; 2. No intentional maiming or killing; 3. The ball may be held in hand for five seconds before kicking or passing.

At one point during the game, the ball was free; everyone was trying to get the ball out into the open for some passing and/or dribbling to the respective goal. I reached in with my hands at the same time another player (incidentally, my teammate) attempted a solid kick. My right pinky finger was caught between the ball and my teammate’s hiking boot! In the short time before the pain registered, I captured the ball, and threw it out toward another waiting teammate, then I looked at my hand. Then I felt the pain! When I looked at the back of my right hand, my thumb extended to the left (as it should), my index, middle and ring fingers extended forward (as they should) and my pinky finger extend 90 ° to the right (as it should not!). As I was held in a huddle while someone held my hand and pulled my finger to let it get back to (almost) its correct position, someone commented, “I guess you’ll never play piano again!” fortunately that was incentive for me to overcome the injury and practice intensely, until I could regain my old level of accomplishment on the instrument. It only took a couple of months.

TJBM is tired and about to turn in for the evening.

genjgal's avatar

Since it’s morning, no.
TJBM is currently in a math class…in their pajamas… wrapped up in a blanket…sitting on the couch…and eating breakfast…

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yes! Except I’m not in a math class unless you count this:
1. g → ♒(g)
2. ♒(g) v ¬♒(g)
3. ¬♒(g) → ♒(¬♒(g))
4. ♒(g) v ♒(¬♒(g))
5. ♒(¬♒(g)) → ♒(¬g)
6. ♒(g) v ♒(¬g)
7. ¬♒(¬g)
8. ♒(g)
9. ♒(g) → g
10. g
And I’m also not in my pajamas or wrapped up in a blanket . Or sitting on the couch. Or eating breakfast. But other than that, you’re spot on! :)

TJBM doesn’t know what the hell that was that I just posted up there.

RandomGirl's avatar

Umm, true… I think.

TJBM got up early.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Well, that’s relative! If you consider being up before noon “early” then, yes. I did.

TJBM wonders how Noah fit dinosaurs in his ark and wonders if the dinosaurs ate all the sheeps and pigs..

RandomGirl's avatar

Nope. Dinosaur eggs could have easily been gestating over the months they were on the Ark.

TJBM is in pain.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Haven’t heard that one before, but it’s interesting. Instead of taking 2 of every kind of animal, why not just take 1 pregnant one?

Not in pain, just feel like crap.

TJBM had a good breakfast.

RandomGirl's avatar

Well, you would need a way to make sure you ended up with a male and a female… But this thread isn’t a debate ;)

Sort of.

TJBM has posted in a TJBM thread for the sole purpose of responding to a particular post (like what I just did) and then done the normal thing just for uniformity’s sake.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Asking now! :)

Um…..

TJBM wonders if any TJBM responses have ever been moderated.

Strauss's avatar

Not that I know of, but I could be wrong.

TJBM now has, has had in the past, or would consider in the future having a “friend with benefits.”

Dutchess_III's avatar

Well, that would be my husband. :)

TJBM has posted a question based on some answers here.

genjgal's avatar

Um nope.
(How on earth would you know if the eggs were male or female? Considering the fact that reptiles don’t stop growing, I think the most likely case is the young ones were brought on the ark.)
TJBM thinks I’m a little bit coo-coo. (lol)

RandomGirl's avatar

Of course I do. Happiness is being friends with people whose craziness is compatible with yours.

TJBM likes to sit on their computer for longer than is healthy, watching interesting youtube videos.

genjgal's avatar

Mhm

TJBM does not understand politics.

OpryLeigh's avatar

I understand enough to be able to keep up with what is going on in the country. Politics effect me too much to not have at least a basic understanding.

TJBM tries to keep up with the national news.

genjgal's avatar

very true
TJBM was a little depressed yesterday.

RandomGirl's avatar

More than a little.

TJBM has to stay away from the news or else they’ll get too worked up or depressed.

genjgal's avatar

Only occasionally.
TJBM pronounced fluther wrong at first.

Bluefreedom's avatar

I don’t believe so. I sounded it out and was pretty much dead on with my first pronunciation although I do admit I had to look up the definition of “Fluther” when I first joined the collective here.

TJBM isn’t a conspiracy theorist but they are skeptical from time to time about what the mainstream media reports and what they really believe happens in some situations.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Sure.

TJBM pronounces their own name wrong sometimes.

RandomGirl's avatar

I guess so. After a few hours of phone banking (Hi, my name is Sarah…) during election season, I start saying my name really weird.

TJBM has had a great day come from a mistake. Today I had to wait for two extra hours for my bus, and it turned out that I was able to sit in the sun on the soft grass with some really awesome people. GREAT day!

Dutchess_III's avatar

Not today so far! But I know what you mean. It’s cool that you turned that extra time into a fun event, instead of steaming and stewing and getting upset. :)

TJBM is still waiting.

genjgal's avatar

Sure, waiting for lots of things.
TJBM lives where the weather is bipolar.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yes! 30 one day, 89 the next!

TJBM can’t seem to catch a break.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

What is a break? I’m retired and seem to be going for more than forty hours a week. . . . :>)

TJBM get into things and volunteers for everything.

genjgal's avatar

Not unless it’s political.
TJBM has been on fluther for over 2 years.

RandomGirl's avatar

On and off, yes. This time around, it’s been about 7 months.

TJBM is working around an injury.

reijinni's avatar

nope
TJBM wants the next iphone

genjgal's avatar

nope. Never even had the first one. haha
TJBM has a new idea and they hope they don’t get lazy and let it slide.

reijinni's avatar

Too late in many cases.
TJBM quit going to Sunday School.

tups's avatar

I never went to Sunday School.
TJBM wonders why anyone should go to school in the weekend.

Strauss's avatar

Usually, yes, but I have attended certain classes on Saturdays.

TJBM likes the TJBM thread.

RandomGirl's avatar

Always have and always will.

TJBM finds it hard to explain things to people.

Dutchess_III's avatar

No. They just have a hard time understanding!

TJBM got a really neat piece of new furniture today.

genjgal's avatar

nope

TJBM can’t think of a question to ask…

dxs's avatar

I dont think of questions to ask, I ask questions when they come to me.
The Jelly below me is looking mighty dapper this fine evening.

dxs (15160points)“Great Answer” (0points)
dxs's avatar

Why, yes I am, thank you!
The Jelly below me agrees.

dxs (15160points)“Great Answer” (0points)
RandomGirl's avatar

Sure.

TJBM is going to try to get some more sleep tonight.

genjgal's avatar

haha no
TJBM is stressed.

geeky_mama's avatar

Actually, no..I’m feeling pretty bliss-ed out (which is great for a Tuesday at work).

TJBM has sunshine on a cloudy day.

dxs's avatar

Nahh it looks more like clouds on a sunny day. Or maybe I’m just a pessimist. Or would that make me an optimist?
The Jelly below me knows the answer to the above question.

dxs (15160points)“Great Answer” (0points)
Strauss's avatar

Nope. It depends on whether your speed is slow, fast, or just half-fast.

TJBM knows someone who is affected directly by the weather disasters of the last couple days.

RandomGirl's avatar

Nope.

TJBM has had a busy day today.

tups's avatar

Not too busy, but it left me tired.

TJBM habla español.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

No, but I can order a cerveza and than ask for the baños.

TJBM thinks drinking beer is only renting it.

Strauss's avatar

Yep. A old saying I heard: If you’re peeing clear, your peeing beer

TJBM pays attention to urine color.

Bluefreedom's avatar

Yes I do, especially living in the hot desert environment of Phoenix, Arizona. It is very easy to get dehydrated here so I drink a lot of water and make sure my urine is a clear color as often as possible.

TJBM believes in the merits of capital punishment.

RandomGirl's avatar

I do.

TJBM flip-flops on important issues. I do.

tups's avatar

I sure do, too.

TJBM does not feel free.

Strauss's avatar

Correct, but by choice. I am married.

TJBM is married and wishes s/he were not, or is not married and wishes s/he were.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I’m married and I’m cool with that.

TJBM is feeling a storm move in and thinks she should move to Denmark.

RandomGirl's avatar

Ummm yes on the first part, not sure about the second part.

TJBM is feeling contradicted. Like being in pain but being thankful for the pain, which is where I am right now.

tups's avatar

Always.

TJBM is laughing on the inside.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Mmmm. Not at the moment.

TJBM has a family member or friend who LOVES snakes.

OpryLeigh's avatar

Yes. I love snakes myself and one of my closest friends has a ball python.

TJBM recently took a trip down memory lane.

Strauss's avatar

Yes. I was recently tracked down by a friend of my youth.

TJBM likes family reunions.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I do like family reunions…casual ones, though.

TJBM likes class reunions.

Bluefreedom's avatar

I do not like them actually. After attending my first one (10 year reunion) and seeing how unexciting and uninspiring it was, I never attended another one after that.

TJBM likes to take pictures with cameras that need to have film developed as opposed to using digital cameras.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Um. I miss my old 35 mm. I really do. But the advantages of digital are so freaking awesome. Only problem is, I now have thousands and thousands of pictures piled up versus the few hundred I took in all the years of using my 35 mm. (Ha ha! I have rolls of 35mm that are 10 to 15 years old. I take them in to get them developed, 3 at a time, once a month. Talk about a walk down memory lane. It’s my children, many years ago.)

TJBM thinks that, for the most part, new technology is freaking awesome.

tups's avatar

Not for the most part, no. Depends on how you define new technology, I guess. I think refrigerators are great and owens and showers and stuff. There are some things I am not so keen on, though. The internet is great, but it has some serious dark sides. It’s like there’s more than one dimension between people. I don’t like smartphones. Do we really need to be online all the time? Can’t we just take a bus ride and look out the window? I think modern technology causes a lot of people stress. I also think we have to be careful not to lose ourselves.

TJBM likes French music.

RandomGirl's avatar

Mmm yes. As far as I know.

TJBM is holding their breath about something. (figuratively, that is) My 94-year-old grandfather fell and hit his head about a half hour ago. My mom jumped into the car to meet him at the hospital. I don’t know much about what’s going on. I’m holding my breath.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Oh oh….keep us informed, @RandomGirl My husband’s dad fell when he was 88. It was a bad deal, but he recovered fully. He’s 90 now, and one awesome man.

Well, I’m holding my breath waiting for a piece of cheescake to thaw out, but it’s frozen solid. Guess I’ll die before I get to eat it. But, on the bright side, think of all the calories I’ll save!

TJBM is tickled pink that WalMart now carries cheesecake from The Cheese Cake Factory! Even though she / he hates shopping at Walmart.

RandomGirl's avatar

Ooh they do?! Yes, I am!! Although I’ll be on a strict no-sugar diet for at least a month or two, because of my Lyme disease and the antibiotics.

@Dutchess_III: my mom just called and gave me some more info. He’ll be fine, but he has 6 stitches and my mom is staying with him for twenty-four hours.

TJBM thinks ads on TV are really tiring.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Good.

Most ads are really tiring. I like the AT&T kids, though.

TJBM thinks the Super Bowl ads have just sucked the last 4 years.

genjgal's avatar

I’m tired of all the half naked women. (so many ads are basically soft porn. :/ )
TJBM can’t see their neighbor’s house.

Strauss's avatar

Sorry, I can see 16 neighbors’ houses (there is a cul-de-sac right across the street from my house, and my large back yard has 5 lots against it!)

TJBM can’t think of anything to say to TJBH.

RandomGirl's avatar

Nope….
Can TJBM?

Bluefreedom's avatar

Yes, I certainly can. If fact, I can do absolutely everything possible….in the Matrix at least.

TJBM is in agreement that no more Matrix sequels need to be produced. Or any more Star Wars movies for that matter also. (I heard Disney bought the rights and we’re going to make more.)

Strauss's avatar

I would agree that no more need to be made. You can say the same thing about the Hobbit, Friday the 13th,Die Hard, or any movie with so many sequels or parts.

Of course, anything Disney has the rights to will be produced with artistic quality only as a factor in commercialization

TJBM thinks Disney has bastardized many fairy tales and other stories by “disney-fication” of the story line.

reijinni's avatar

of course
TJBM has a sweating problem.

Dutchess_III's avatar

No, I have a freezing problem!

TJBM may have spent a lot of money foolishly recently.

RandomGirl's avatar

Mmm… A few weeks ago when I bought a dress that I’ll probably never be able to wear… maybe. But it was five bucks, so hey, whatever.

TJBM just figured out how to do something cool. I figured out how to do a waterfall braid. This will be my hairdo for the next few weeks. XD

genjgal's avatar

idk…?
I figured out the waterfall braid like a couple of months ago.

TJBM really needs some ideas…

Dutchess_III's avatar

I do. I do. Ideas on how to make money.

When dealing with jerks, TJBM has to remind themselves that we are all nothing more than Great Apes. Envisions a chimpanzee in place of my boss.

RandomGirl's avatar

Nope, I remind myself we’re all just sinners saved by grace. :)

TJBM wasn’t expecting that response.

Strauss's avatar

I had no expectations, so no.

TJBM is lucky to have her/his s/o.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I am. He’s a pain, but overall, I’m glad he’s around.

TJBM still hasn’t turned on their AC.

RandomGirl's avatar

Nope. Broke out a few fans so far, but not very often. We’ve hit 80 maybe once so far. :)

TJBM injured themself today. I sliced my thumb open with a peach (pit).

Dutchess_III's avatar

We hit in the upper 90’s for two days!

RandomGirl's avatar

@Dutchess_III Huh?

TJBM has done ^that^.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Yup, invisible ink on my laptop.

TJBM knows where to get great Barbeque.

Strauss's avatar

Yeah, of any type: Texas, KC, St. Louis, Chicago, S. Carolina, Georgia, Memphis, you name it, I can find you a good outlet. But my personal favorite is smoked low and slow in my backyard.

TJBM has a backyard smoker.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Cook on a Big Green Egg at least twice a month, year round. Did spare ribs a week ago, next cook pork shoulder, will cook for 15 to 18 hours.

TJBM goes to the gas/diesel station at least once a week.

RandomGirl's avatar

Nope. But I did pump gas on my own for the first time yesterday. I feel so young XD

TJBM didn’t do anything for Father’s Day yesterday.

genjgal's avatar

I did stuff.
(Totally should have known you and I would end up pumping gas for the first time on the same day! What did I expect…lol)

TJBM is amazed by how much they and their friend end up doing together.

RandomGirl's avatar

Yes, I am.

TJBM is excited. I just got a treatment plan put together, and I should be feeling a lot better in two weeks. Also, I’m going on an awesome trip in a bit over two weeks. Life is exciting.

yep.

TJBM could really use some information finder that is even better than google. (for sure not bing…)

Nope, and I don’t envy you.

tups's avatar

True.

TJBM is impatiently waiting for their food to thaw out because they’re STARVING!

Mmm, nope. Not lately. Actually, just heard something kind of sad – a guy I used to be fairly good friends with made a really bad decision and got kicked out of the camp where we’ve worked together. Surprising and disappointing.

reijinni's avatar

nope, just along week
TJBM can solve Detroit’s problems.

Strauss's avatar

TJBM sees a lot in the news today that is of interest.

Coloma's avatar

Them: ” But, but…I have NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE, HOW did it get there, WHY is it there?”

Me: It’s just part of the door…walking away as elderly person makes high pitched ” Ooooooooooh sounds and keeps repeating… I don’t understand WHY I have never seen that before!” pointing trigger finger at head

False, 2 very cute and smart and well behaved cats.

TJBM is having a hot flash lol

Dutchess_III's avatar

False. I have never had a hot flash in my life. Once I told my obgyn, who was a male, that perhaps I’d had some but didn’t know it. He told me that a female friend of his said that a hot flash was like an orgasm. You know it when you have one! I thought about that for a second then gleefully said, “Bring it on!!” He laughed and said, “Well, not like THAT!”

TJBM thinks it would be cool to get to baby sit twin babies sometimes.

True I would have loved to when I could, BUT now my hands are unreliable and my mobility impaired and I wouldn’t want to trust their safety to my difficulties.
TJBM has a real slow signal like me and thinks it’s time to restart this thread.
(I’m still learning this stuff, I’m afraid of messing it up.)

True. I have a pretty slow connection, too.

True and true/false. I don;t want to give a eulogy at a funeral but I will happily do some stand up comedy.
