Thanks! It helps a lot, just knowing what a thing is called. I have plenty of time to look into this (it's a cosplay idea oddly enough) so I'll wander around the hardware stuff looking for some of those things.

You know those swooshy drawers like in tackle boxes? https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/713cLZfic9L._SX355_.jpg It should be possible to take your own trays and hinge them like that, right? It looks like it's just a matter of where they connect, and how long the connectors are... Is th...

Damn, that is either my local renaissance festival or one built eerily similarly.

Is this a power-inducing breakfast cereal, or an unfortunate skin condition one picked up at the gym?

Re: Oh those pet peeves

People are mad because it seemed like Simplicity had stolen a lot of designs from indie designers who were not given credit or compensation.

Fine, be mad. Post at them saying "you have lost my business and are a poopyhead." Don't threaten to kill them, geez.

Re: Oh those pet peeves

People who calmly make death threats on the internet. Recently the pattern company Simplicity sponsored a lolita convention then released a pattern that appeared to be a compilation of designs copied from indie brand items being sold at said convention. The con released an official statement saying ...

Re: HOW WAS YOUR DAY

Saw a different personal trainer than usual, who was unexpectedly hard on me, and kept pushing me despite protestations. Next morning I got a muscle spasm in my upper back. I'm barely mobile, and the muscle relaxer makes me drowsy, and I had so many plans this weekend. Hard not to get bitter about h...

Re: Books

Sharing because it was difficult for me to find: There exists one (1) DRM-free audiobook site! https://www.downpour.com/ As someone who does not want to support DRM I found this exciting. I just signed up for a membership, might cancel if I don't go through one book a month, but it's cheaper per/boo...

Re: In the Land of Wonderful Dreams

Four nights in a row of fighting for my life all night. I think it's probably an improvement though; used to be when things attacked me in dreams I'd run and hide and then they'd get me. Lately I fight back, and hold my own. I'm curious how much of that is due to a year of therapy, and how much is b...

Re: Weather

Thad and Brentai, is that "dry heat" I've heard so much about really so much more tolerable at insanely high temperatures? I've never really experienced it-- it got above 100 here one summer in memory, but it was also like 70% humidity.

There is a bird outside my house that wakes me up at around 5:30 every morning.
Does anyone sell bird-muzzles?

Re: Weather

At 7:30 am it was already so hot and muggy that walking to work was laboriously breathing soup while becoming drenched in sweat. And it's not even technically summer yet.

Re: Things That Go in Your Mouth

I had heard that before, about salt in coffee, but had forgotten about it. I should try it some time. The office coffee is Starbucks though, so I don't think even salt can save it from its burnedness.

I seriously roll that way, every time I have to roll a character. Even if it's roll 4d6 and keep the top 3, I always end up with 5's and 6's and nothing over 13.
