    That explains it. After such a story I would not have spent the proverbial million dollars for free at that place.

    to randomize things, it is nice to see a scrub working as advertised. It said t atract butterflies, and it does.

    I don't get it. Business is business. But, you know, whatever. If your sister can get a refund, then who cares.

    Your dutch home cooking experience apparently has been rather different than mine. But maybe that's we generally didn't (and I still don't) make greasy food and we do like food somewhat spicy.

    /edit
    Like Michael Corleone said: "It's all personal, every bit of business."

    Drinking ice and water. Things all turned out good with the art-store stuff. I now get to shop and my favorite art store.

    A few years ago someone posted lyrics to a song about advice a relative gave him. There were a certain number of pieces of advice and the relative died before sharing all of them. It was a funny song -- one line was something along the lines of "if she's good in bed it's not by accident"

    Can anyone point me in the right direction here?

    I posted it ... two or three times (dmc pointed to one).

    It's "100 Things Every Man Needs to Know" by Tim Wilson and you can listen to it as well....

    Ugh, more computer problems. I hate hardware issues. Every component should have a self-diagnostic that goes "Hey, I'm f***ed! You should replace me."

    It is? What exactly is exciting about it? Is it a woman thing, like buying shoes?

    So it's exciting because you're always short on paint?

    Yes a lot of my paint is getting old - I had a good stock a number of years ago and then stopped painting for a while and now I am using it again and a lot of it us unusable right now. I asked the people I know if anyone had any old paint they don't use - to donate it to me but my sister was really nice and gave me a "christmas in July" present to get some much needed supplies. What I needed more than the paint itself was liquid acrylic medium and so I bought a fairly large supply of that. I also bought myself a new pentel brush pen which is a beautiful drawing tool but I had lost the one I had previously for years.

    I've never used a brush pen. In most situations where I can imagine needing one, I usually do the work digitally.

    That's too bad Kenneth. I work with any kind of visual media I can. I mostly use acrylic but I also have done a lot of drawing and used many different media for that as well.

    Pencils are more my thing. Since I've never had the opportunity to make a living as an illustrator, I don't have nearly enough practice to use anything quite so permanent. So I use a tablet which allows me to get things right without any fuss.

    I did also paint for a while. Watching Bob Ross inspired me quite a fair bit, but it was always too messy for me, and I don't really have the vision to create paintings from scratch. Best I can do is imitate what I see.
