What 99p stores? Poundland bought them all laugh.gif
mirocu
Yeah, Ashen did say that. I forgot mellow.gif


Then go to Poundland and save one pence biggrin.gif
Callidus Thorn
But that would mean....

Going outside ohmy.gif

panic.gif



hehe.gif
mirocu
Im fine with going outside, as long as theres no people around tongue.gif


And I guess theres people in Poundlands... But if you go to a Poundland in Norwich you might come across Ashen and if you do, remember to greet him with "bop-beep-bop-beep-beep-bop - Hello!"
Callidus Thorn
*Has no idea who Ashen is*

*shrugs*
mirocu
Hes the king of Poundland tat and pop stations (bad electronic games) biggrin.gif
tegeus-Cromis
I totally miss the 99p shop. Foodwise, Poundland is just boring mainstream stuff (though they do stock good tools), but the 99p had all sorts of interesting pickles and condiments and things like olives stuffed with anchovies. You're lucky to get just a plain jar of olives in Poundland. But we do have a local Lidl that opened recently, so at least I can console myself by feasting on kangaroo stew or reindeer steaks...
mirocu
But at least Poundland has those disgusting, vomit-inducing delicious minipizzas even the dog wont eat loves... biggrin.gif

So Wednesday- we got 3 inches of snow, which meant I stayed home from work. Now it is important to understand the snow fell in my part of the state, but not in the state capital- so if I want to avoid death and dismemberment, I get to use my vacation. (I have the vacation days, and I am too old to think I am invincible anymore. And even if I am- my 17 year old truck isn't and I don't want to have a car payment).

It did not melt in time for me to feel safe going on the Thursday either- though I felt guilty about that.

So- today- with dire predictions being predicted, but not until late in the day- I roll out at 6:30 and do my hour and a quarter drive to work. Where I find the state capital has declared THEY will be going home at noon. Then- 15 minutes later, they decide, No, they will close down ALL state offices, because it is snowing THERE. Whereas here- where I live and work- we didn't see the first flakes of this storm for another 10 hours...

But hey- paid Friday off- without having to use my vacation.

We got almost 5' at our house, and the snow was still thick enough yesterday afternoon that my son got stuck on our drive and had to walk at least a quarter mile up to the house. So tonight he drove all the way to west Knoxville to work, and if they don't close early I'm going to be worried sick. I am hoping they send them home before the roads ice up.

Tennessee has been declared a state of emergency in advance for the ice about to cometh, urk.

Thanks for separating the Fallout games into a separate section! It's so much easier to navigate through those two sections of Chorrol now.

Closing down because of snow? huh.gif I dont think weve ever done that, despite of how much snow thats come. And heavy wind. We just go to work, snow is no excuse here. The concept of closing down because of it boggles my brain. Just look -----> wacko.gif



But dont feel bad, treyyie. Just enjoy your excuse to be home and enjoy your life biggrin.gif

Good news for the Capital Wasteland though! Or is all that snow radioactive? If not, the water beggar will be happy for a while before he freezes to death...
Grits
So far this morning I dont see any trees down. We still have power. We didnt get much snow, but we always get the ice. I hope that the other ice-bound Chorrolites are faring well.

Its still pretty dark, but the sky looks like more snow to me!

My ten years old car ran out of battery today in the morning as we went shopping. At first my dad came with his car and we tried to run it (however this process is called in English) but it didn't work and I had to call assistance, fortunately he managed to do it with his battery so I could drive to a nearest gas station to buy a new battery.

It looks like my car knows that I bought a new car and am supposed to get in two months, that's why he decided to piss me off at least once per month, I had it at a mechanic store monthly since October.

Its always fun to watch a cat slip. It looks so confused! laugh.gif
Callidus Thorn
It's even funnier when they slip when they try to jump. All that effort, for this tiny little jump that doesn't get them far enough laugh.gif

I think we better stop laughing at them. They might get angry and I dont think we want that biggrin.gif

Is that some kind of geek test or something?

Because I actually recognised that as the Konami Code.

The sad thing is, I can't recall any game that I might have actually used that code in laugh.gif

Used in Contra/Probotector; its the 30 lives code biggrin.gif

What I have done is I save the image that I want on my computer, then I upload it to imgur and link to it there. A small hassle but then I have a reliable avatar smile.gif

Just popping in to ask a noobie question... how do I upload an avatar? I've only every used links but sometimes they are unreliable.

What I have done is I save the image that I want on my computer, then I upload it to imgur and link to it there. A small hassle but then I have a reliable avatar smile.gif


And youre not a noobie, you came here two years before me! tongue.gif


I knooowww but sorting out avatars is probably the most basic thing in the book tongue.gif

Turns out all I had to do was add .jpeg to the end of my link! Haha

Here is a time lapse of the first 27 hours (in 40 seconds) of the storm hitting in Virginia:

Is that your place?

Reminds me of the blizzards we get up here every few years. Or used to get every few years. The big one in 2011 was the first big one in probably 20 years, before that it was every five or six years.

Join the club! biggrin.gif

No, we didn't get it that bad; but it is the same storm system that hit us. We were pretty lucky where I live, it did some severe damage in TN, but not where we are. I think the mountains protected us from getting the brunt of it.

Can you stop sending your weather our way please?...Original predictions had it carry on northwards...But no, y'all seem to have gotten all collective and prayer-like and redirected it all at us... kvleft.gif ...Some of us have to work in that!...

( biggrin.gif )...

Only joking...At least all we're getting is rain out of it...Rain, even lots of it can be dressed against...

The fields are sodden though...

Daymn, but my conversations are riveting these days...

Movie series that should have stopped at the third one: The Star Wars



Milage may vary and all that.... biggrin.gif

I'd agree with those, though I'd be inclined to add a couple.
mirocu

Game series that should have stopped at the

first game: Deus Ex

second game: Bioshock

Cops. Cops everywhere! Just saw some dude get arrested a block from my grandmother's place for hitting an officer. Apparently he's some drug dealer/criminal on the lam. Full of people there. Police are asking witnesses. I had to leave lol. I didn't see anything.

But Im not getting the target I was talking about. Turns out its ridiculously small. Not that Im gonna spray and pray mind you, but Im gonna have it out in the woods and I wanna be able to see it so I dont accidentally run it down with the tractor tongue.gif

Im gonna make something myself and save a few bob bucks pennies some money.
