    Sorry to hear about the gerbil, D-Fly. The new gem is rather symbolic. :(

    Yesterday was a busy day. Chocolates were the highlight of it.

    You talk too much. That's why. Now be quiet before the KGB get you.

    After RBP#100, the Admin had had enough...so they upped the limit to 1k to reduce the speed at which the RBP threads multiplied.

    In other news, the weather outside is...disgusting. We're experiencing a temperature inversion...which unfortunately traps all the air pollution towards the ground. The Utah Department of Environmental Quality says it is *unhealthy* to be outside for the next 3 days or so. :eek: The smog is so thick that I can't see the mountain ranges on either side of us. :nolike: The cherry on top is the fact that I have asthma...so it's really unhealthy for me to be outside for more than a few minutes.

    But hey, I have the day off…I just can’t go outside. Ain't life in Utah grand? :rolleyes:

    Sorry to hear about the Utah smog problem, Kitrax. You'd think those damn Mormons would care more about air quality when they're always yapping so much about eating and drinking healthy stuff. They're loonies, one and all!

    Oh, and welcome back, Shell -- it's been a long time!

    I guess I was wrong about our Gerbil. I checked the cage this morning and she is still alive. Very shaky though and doesn't run around the cage at all like the other one. I gave her a peanut which she ate, but I still don't see her lasting very much longer.

    ION the weather is going to get cold again for a while so it may not yet be the end of my ice sculpture.

    Try reading an extensive account of Emperor Trajan's (Roman Empire, Antonian era) Dacian* war and expansion in the east (well, really the near east or Levant) with multiple interpretations of both modern and ancient historian for all night. Now that's headache material :rolleyes:



    * Kingdom Of Dacia; its territory represents the modern Romania and Moldavia with part of eastern Hungary, Northern Bulgaria, and South Eastern Ukraine.

    PS: No matter what others might say, I don't mind divulging knowledge in RBP :lol:

    ---

    I agree, the hat's awesome, good portrait! I have a killer headache I wonder if it's related to my head banging experience some hours ago.

    @LKD -
    Funny you should ask that. When we first got the gerbils about 3.5 years ago Gizo (The sick one) was supposed to be the male and we were planning to make a bunch of baby gerbils. As it turned out, the young guy in the pet store really didn't know anything about sexing gerbils and just sold us the first one he could catch and TOLD us that she was a MALE. She wasn't, and neither was the first one - hence no babies. Now both gerbils are geriatrics and couldn't have any babies even if one had an outy and the other had an inny.

    When I was at school they used to make us eat spam fritters for lunch. Dreadful things they were.
    However, the pink custard used to make up for it!
