I'm definitely on the tea side of the coffee-tea debate, but as I only like it cold and sweetened the tea aficionados tend to consider me a heretic anyway.

Sweet tea is further proof that everything before 1776 was a mistake. ;)

My department just instituted a no overtime policy, so I had to leave at 10:30 this morning, and that's after making concious efforts to cut back my hours throughout the rest of the week. Otherwise I would have had to leave early yesterday afternoon.

Long weekend FTW?

Losing the extra cash sucks though.

awake, clothed, upright, and at work.

Asking me for anything more is folly. Unless it relates to abscondi-cave activities, mind.

My day is the opposite, I've gotten inventory done and all my expenses for the month totaled and sent in, so I've nothing to do today but answer the phone and goof off.

Okay, I am all but officially done with this day. Managed to get all the orders out, my inbox cleared, and any warranty issues resolved to the customers satisfaction.

And I didn't even commit a felony today. I deserve a cookie.

We roast everything in Ireland. Roast veg, roast potatoes, roast meats. It's delicious, done right.

Stereotypically, all food in Scotland is deep-fried, and all food in England is boiled.

Neither of those things are true, he says, chowing down on his freshly boiled hamburger & 'fries'

My taste in music hasn't changed much throughout my life, I just add new stuff to it from time to time. But then again I've always been hung up on 50s and 60s country and rock.
if its from a video game or an anime, I probably like it. Everything else is case by case.

If memory serves correctly I subjected you to my love of Johnny Cash a few years back.

Sounds like you and my daughter, Arden, have the same taste in music.

your music is damn good. You need to hang with markthomas66.

How is she? Probably tall and grown and breaking hearts, she was cute last I saw her.

OMG, she's taller than her momma now, and all into her "rocker phase". As for the heart breaking, her first girlfriend broke up with her right before the end of school, but I bought her a new guitar and she's pouring herself into music. Shoot me a text if you still have my number, I'll send you some pics.

You must still be young. In my teens I misliked most pop songs, and despised metal. By my late 40s, I was starting to admire just how polished and cleverly-crafted many of the 90s pop songs were, and I find myself seriously enjoying Impus Major's European metal.

Dressing up like Joakim Broden at 50 was quite the blast, too.

Don't know if I'd call 43 young. Though I reckon to some it may be. ;)

I tend to kind of stay the same through out my life, hell until about 4 years ago I've only ever cut my hair one way. Still dress the same as I did as a teen, jeans and either tshirt or button up, converse all stars or work boots.

I even weigh within 10 pounds of what I did at 15, around 185. I'm like Peter freaking Pan that way.

Lucky! I did hard-core Tae Kwon Do (22 hours a week!!) from 20-23 and fought at 155 lbs, but quitting cold and continuing to eat 5000-6000 calories a day is detrimental to your body shape. I ballooned to 185 within 2 months, and have stayed within 15 pounds of that for most of the last 27 years.

In terms of fashion, I'm wearing much the same stuff (loose cotton pants and T-shirts), but skate pants with skulls 'n' such went out of fashion, so I've switched to Chefwear. Explaining the many references to me and "fish pants".

No kidding! I fought Muay Thai from 20-24. Quit fighting after meeting my wife. Of course now I pay for thinking I was indestructible back then.

130 degree F heat will kill bed bugs. Don't use the dryer alone. Turh on the stove and oven if you have them.

They can't regulate their body temperature.

Heating an apt to the necessary temperature is something only a professional should do. Seriously—don't try to use your oven! (Plus, you pay for that, unlike the exterminator!)

The heat treatment is more expensive than chemical treatment, but it's usually a one-shot treatment, esp. if they also do the adjoining unit at the same time. (Chemical treatment is a months-long process and requires repeated visits to kill first the adults, then any that hatch in the interval.)

Re: clothing: I'll second doc the grey's recommendation to wash and immediately dry on high anything you're about to wear, or keep clean + dried on high clothes somewhere that you can change into when you leave the house (and quarantine anything you wore at home in a plastic bag with diatomaceous earth). BUT, if you're getting the heat treatment, you don't have to go through the rigamarole of washing and/or drying on high all of your clothes at once. Anything that you don't need immediately, you can just leave in open bags to get nuked—so if possible, assign shrinkable sweaters, leather shoes, etc. to that category, because the heat treatment alone probably won't harm them. (You'll want everything off your bed and out of your dressers so the furniture can heat up enough). Good luck!

Pretty much this, with the exception of washing all the clothes. Don't, if you get a heat treatment done (which I do recommend over chemical treatments in a home) pull your clothes out of the drawers and toss them in the middle of the floor. I'm not going to lie, your house will be tossed and in total disarray when they're done, but it simply must be done to kill the bloodsucking little bastiches.

Edit: I see where it was already stated about not having to wash the clothes first, I just got home after a 11hr day so I just skimmed the post to start with. My bad.

Awesome. Townhouse or apartment?

We opted for the townhouse, it's proximity to her work, and the kids school, and the free after school care provided will be worth the $200 more a month we have to pay. With three kids childcare is costly as all get out, and that helps a ton.

Plus I am not an apartment person, I'll be happier with a little more room between me and too many other humans.
