HONEY, I promise you....
The dog, boat, and grill are all very real. How could I ever keep us such a charade? The mango's are their own thing, I dont control them, they just are.

Yeah, I have central ac. I also have a wall ac unit in the bedroom, cause yanno, it can get kinda hot in there....

You want to visit? Just let me know...There are others here who will vouch for my honor. I have better things to do than being a crazy chainsaw murder.(but it is a hobby)

Kidding, I kid

Ah. Now was that so hard? You keep talking about this boat, and the grill, and the dog, and mangos...I might have to move to FL. Except for the heat/humidity. You DO have central AC right?:D

i tried that one year... didn't do crap for keeping the weeds away. i need to get rid of the violets in the front lawn, get it power raked and over seed it really well this fall. that's about the only chance i think i'll have at redeeming the front lawn. the back lawn is ok, aside from some highly invasive plants, but the grass is thicker and better in general. i don't really like using chemicals, but i'd like a decent lawn. hoepfully if i get the grass thicker, i won't need the chemicals to block the weeds.

I read the back of Dyanetics (or whatever it's called) and they called him a prophet on the issue I read. I didn't read the book, just the back cover fluff.
There's a person who rides my train who seems to be really into Scientology. She has a lot of negative stuff to say on psychiatrists and it amazes me how many times she can bring up that subject.
The stuff I've been reading makes me more...cautious...yeah ok, cautious, of them then I already was. Scary stuff. No wonder Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes got the hell out. Even Lisa Marie Presley and that other girl...what's her name...hang on...Leah Rimini (sp?) have recently left and they don't have much good to say about it.

This was started by a couple of them including the nice of the guy who runs it now.

Honestly I'd love that. I so need a vacation. I can't seem to even get enough time/money to go to the beach HERE (the real beach NOT Lake Washington...Pacific Ocean).

It's like a couple hour drive each way and I'm not making the drive to just spend a couple hours and turn around and come back, so that means staying somewhere. I don't need a 5-star hotel, but I'm not about to stay where (in the immortal words of my son) "crack whores go to die" either, so there's some cash for that, plus food, and gas at $4+ a gallon in my Jag, each freaking way...it's basically a tourist town over there so nothing's "cheap" and it's too cold to pitch a tent on the beach...

Maybe a plane ticket WOULD be cheaper...

Oh yeah then there's the "I don't have time to think much less travel" thing too. Maybe in a couple more years I can go somewhere again. I miss traveling.:(

Aw, thanks for missing me.

We are in WI with the good sister and I spent Friday morning last-minute packing and then a 3+ hour drive. It's lovely up here.

Here's rooting for awkward.
Teehee, he was awkward. Very socially awkward, like almost Sheldon Cooper awkward. Not that bad or smart. He seemed sooo nervous and insecure, which is not very attractive in a 38 y/o man.
Will give him another shot--unless something is glaring, a 2nd date helps figure stuff out...

Definitely if you liked him well enough go for the second date.

Lots of people are really nervous on a first date.*I* am, I'm just good at hiding it. All those years working in the salon made me need to be "social" even though it was all an act. I just liked making money, so I learned how to pretend. Not everyone can really do that, so they act how they're feeling.

Of course if he isn't at least a *little* more relaxed after the second date, you might want to think about whether you want to spend time on a third... Not really my business or anything, just being nosey and bossy.:D

We took a left at Fond du Lac and drove for about an hour. The weather sucks.

I saw, just never had a chance to look up the available options and feeling very poor.

Nose and boss away-I offered my life. ;p
He called the next day (!) wanting to set up a date for this coming weekend. I haven't called back yet. I hate the phone and I was busy...probably later this afternoon.
The other guy that I like a bit more hasn't called since our Thursday date. I was meh on him but date 2 was really nice. We shall see...he seemed interested for more, but I always think that and never hear from them again, lol.

Well, that last batch of rain seems to have been the trigger for the mango's, they are starting to fall ripe. Have grilled a couple, delicious!

How do you slice them so you get anything other than the long sides?Do you peel them first?

I have seen the video of doing th criss cross cuts and turning the skin inside out but that only works on the outer slice, 2 per fruit. What about the rest?
How do you grill them? Do you use a soft ripe one on the grill or a firm one?
