lynora, I'd get something like this. The swivel puts less lateral force on the kitchen faucet.

Agreed. Pulling on the hose is going to not only put pressure at the nozzle/adapter, but more importantly pull on the joint where the faucet meets the sink/base (Freehold, we know this to be true due to math and its specific application in physics).

That swivel will alleviate some of that, as long as you don't go nuts and yank on it.

hey, I just said she needed an adapter, not the gibbering mouther that is math.
... but... and adapter... is built... from math...

A properly constructed sentence is it's own reward.

I don't care how much you pay me, you're STILL getting a bargain.

I played video games, as a laborer I take my holiday very seriously.

And so it begins.

Begins installing a Bantrid ramp around Skeld's house.

This never would have happened if they let me build it, just saying.

I mostly build patios, walls, and fire pits but there's a lot of crossover, I'm sure, measure twice and cut once and all.

I'll build them all to IKEA standards for half that price! And plane fair. Also you gotta explain to the General why I skipped out on my dental work.

Since I switched from kitchens to construction knives just didn't compare to gas powered saws.

Or my favorite, water saws, nothing cuts like water. :-)

I once built a set of stairs where each block was 600 pounds by myself only using three poles, a rock climbing strap and the power of leverage.

I had the steps done by lunchtime. :-)

That was also the day I saw my very first bald eagle.

We got ourselves "alignment shirts" for our gaming.

Shiro and NobodysWife both have CG ("The right thing, the wrong way").
I have LG for day-to-day life ("Great Power. Great Responsibility") and LE for days when I'm GMing ("Citizen, I am here to assist you. Resistance is useless").

Shiro gets a pass on CG vs CN simply because he enjoys seeing his friends shocked and disappointed (for example, making us watch "Prometheus", but he doesn't like actually causing harm (for example, cutting our brake lines).

Enjoying seeing others suffer for the yucks narrowly avoids evil by not, you know, actually putting them in danger!

;P

So, I'm one of those guys who virtually never remembers his dreams. I recall dreaming at all maybe once per 2-3 years.

So is it disturbing that last night I dreamt that I found CY and TL in my back yard, working on my house for me? Or that CY mysteriously had a Scottish accent?

I'll say it is!

I'm supposed to be the one with the daggum Scottish accent, dang it! I just worked hard on and practiced it a lot for The Inquisitor's Tale and everything, dang it!

(Also, you should check your yard to make sure that wherever I was working is not an ever-growing patch of brown death on accident. I'm just sayin'.)

Hey now, as dream supervisor of this project I certainly wouldn't let you kill the yard.

I'm professional, even in other people's dreams.

Okay, time to build a bookcase!

Which is also my time to shine. :-)

We had a skid loader that some dumb ass parked in the mud and then we got our first really cold cold spell, so my boss gave me a tarp, extension cord and a hair dryer. :-)

It took me four days to use my hammer and chisel to get enough mud out to drive it out. The hairdryer did nothing.

It's a good thing i know how to pave s~$$ then. :-)

I'm gonna need more sand though, that's a lot of aliases.

Begins erecting statues of Orthos, wielding a Stardust Rod in one hand, and a Zwill Crossbow in the other along the southern peaks of FaWtL

Bunk beds are officially complete, mattresses came yesterday, Pea Bear and I just completed the steps.

Yay! A job well done.

Just as soon as I figure out what's wrong with my computer I'll get the construction montage posted, think I'll use Fishbone for the music...

The bunk bed portion of building the bunk beds is f$#@ing complete! Tiny T-Rex gave up fairly early on, but Pea Bear helped throughout, a rousing success!

Next up, the stairs.:-)

Bottom bunk fully f!@@ing assembled. :-)

And so, it begins!

I'm going to be taking pictures the whole time so I can actually do a construction montage afterwards. :-)

Looks to be a fun and rewarding build. it has steps, I love building steps, so methodically intricate. :-)

I'm totally building the bed TODAY...

Guess who just moved a couch out of the kid's room back into the living room, having to twist it at a weird angle to get it thru the hallway and doorways the entire time. Also by himself with no help whatsoever?

This guy!

Bonus points to you if you did not use a furniture dolly

No dolly. :-)
