    Do fingernails surge? After I cut them they're fine, fine, fine, fine, fine, fine, fine, TOO LONG. Do they know they've been cut and then spend a week saving up the energy to surge out?

    On a related topic, with schools going to whiteboards, will the kids of tomorrow understand the allusion to fingernails on a chalkboard?

    I do not want there to be a fingernail thread. I reserve the right to keep this post in RTDNTOTO.

    Hey that gives me a GREAT idea! We should require everyone that wants a post to stay in RTDNTOTO to sign an affidavit for each individual post on RT. That way there'd be no confusion about whether a poster intends for their thoughts to be split off or not!

    We have a local restaurant that serves seafood. It is amazing. I find local restaurants that source fresh seafood to be refreshing.... being in the midwest it doesn't happen very often. I will pay more money for fresh food... so much better.

    Warning – brag ahead… I carried a nearly 6 foot Christmas tree off my car, in to my living room, and got it standing straight (enough) in the tree stand all by myself yesterday. But next year I’m listening to my inner voice and getting a 4+ foot tree, instead of letting my son talk me into a 5+ foot tree… once was enough! No bruises today but my forearms are sore.

    Way to go!

    In my house, we have 11'-0" ceilings, so a 6'-0" tree looks really teeny. We usually buy an 8'-0" or so and will be hoping there's still a good selection next weekend.

    I'm impressed. It seems like getting the tree straight in the stand is at least a two-person project. Way to go.

    I've come to a conclusion today that if a certain person wants to control a certain project even though they are not assigned, I'll let them think it and copy everything with a due date to keep on schedule. If they give me no response, I'll treat in the affirmative (which will also be noted on each copied email).

    You expect that to suffice? You're going to have to do better than that for a disclaimer. I mean look at Otis' disclaimer... you don't have any nifty phrases/terms like: 'party of the first part', 'heretofore', 'ex post facto', or 'intra legem'.

    Thanks to Otis' insightful post about the delayed-aggressive post-cut growth of fingernails I have been obsessing over my fingernails all day! I also feel that there may be a physiological truth to his observation. It may apply to hair (both cranial and nasal) as well. I intend to keep an eye on all hair and nail growth going forward.

    While The Man was having a colonoscopy last Friday, he received a text message from one of our commissioners that read "while they have your a-hole pried open, why don't you have them stick the code compliance staff up there?" Sorry code compliance staff.

    Yeah. I am getting that feeling. I just found out that one of our county attorneys is Jewish. Imagine that a lawyer who is Jewish.

    Just as a general reminder....

    Things don't exist on the internet unless a photo accompanies them....


    My kids school won't let him wear any clothes with characters on them. I have found that this would be fine if the rule didn't apply to socks....

    Wow that's inappropriate! Friday must have been colonoscopy day. I called my architect to ask him about something and he was talking kinda quite. I asked if he was ok, he said he was waiting to be called for his scoping. As in sitting there with a gown on. I told him I'd talk to him on Monday and stop answering the phone for the rest of the day.

    I have a theory that says by the time you are out of 4th grade you have heard every possible joke about your name. A corollary to this theory is that as an adult one should not make a joke about someone else's name, no matter how clever one imagines it to be.
