I'm entertaining myself with Hearthstone expansion witchwood now. Just cleared as Houndmaster. Again the world knows I've always been good at FACE!

The problem is we were kissing yesterday and yeah I already had blisters yesterday but I didn't know yesterday that it was hand foot and mouth.

The distinction between "clothes" and "laundry" is weird. We put on clothes, wear them, then take them off and put them in a basket. At this point they become laundry, and stay that way until they are washed, dried, and put back in the closet/dresser. At this point they become clothes again.

I think I should be careful about these kinds of jokes, Gran. Toys-R-Us is Cap's employer.

After twenty years, I've come to the conclusion that whoever landscaped my mother's house had a marvelous eye but no logical reasoning ability whatsof*ckingever. Also, I know ground ivy is lovely, but if you plant it and never rake or brush off the top of it, you look like you're about to be attacked by 2d4 shambling mounds.

But, I managed to get about 80% of the pool and back yard cleaned up before breakfast (I got up *really* early and I work fast). The front yard is going to take more work. So much more.

Whoever plants ivy needs to be shot out of a cannon.

Just saying.

Yeah. It's nasty. Also, what is that horrible weed that looks like a really big dandelion but is pokey and makes your arms itch? It grows ridiculously well in Oregon. Last summer, I dug an eight-foot tall specimen from behind the diving board. This morning, I got a five-foot tall clump out from under the sitting room windows. Including, thankfully, the tap root. Hate that crap and want it dead.

I don't want to mess about in the Ivy too much because the pet cemetery is underneath it. Three dogs and two cats over twenty years, and it doesn't feel respectful to go clomping around over the top of them.

No. It's an asteracea, similar to bristly hawksbeard, but much taller. The stalks on these were about 2" across and hollow. Milky sap like dandelion.

It's a just suck it because you're stuck with it for 7-10 days. Think chicken pox.

~bangs my head against the wall~ Now both of my Litter Robot II's are not working. That leave only my single Litter Robot III for seven cats. ~curses~ That is not going to work for too long. Maybe Mom can lend me some money for a new Litter Robot.

7 cats...? You have 7 cats at home?

There's some truth in that - I thought how you entertain kids is just to stick them in front of the TV - or give them a smartphone?

I mean I don't approve of that, of course.

Though one of my friends friends did get his smartphone thrown out of the window because he handed it off to his 3 year old daughter...

In seriousness, there are a LOT of reasons Toys R Us is going kaput, but the main ones are a combination of being outmaneuvered and undersold in their own market - most people go to Wal-Mart or a similar store for their toys these days, if they do a brick-n-mortar location at all, otherwise Amazon of course, and the prices at either tend to be lower and the stock more readily available - and their immense outstanding debt.

They were subject to a leveraged buyout in the mid-00s. What this means in layman's terms is that a new company bought TRU from its prior owners, but to get the money for said purchase they took out a huge loan, using the company they were just about to purchase as their collateral. Yes that is legal, bizarrely enough. But it left them with a huge debt that they never made enough profit to pay off, and now they literally can't.

This video is a few years old and thus doesn't have all the most recent events and happenings, but it does give a great deal of information on the situation that's still relevant today.

I'm sure there are significant differences, but really that doesn't sound too different than taking out a car loan or a mortgage (to buy a house, not refi or cash out equity). You're getting money to buy something, and using that thing you are about to buy to guarantee the loan.

I haven't played for at least a month. I was getting kind of burned out, so I took a break thinking that when the expansion dropped it would inspire me to play again. But so far, it hasn't.
