Got a polyp removed from my colon. Doctor is still not entirely happy, so he sent a crapton of tests to the pathologist. He responded a bit evasively on my questions, so I guess I will have to wait the 4 weeks it will take to get an answer. I can't say that I didn't predict something like this.

Here's hoping any of the doc's worries turn out unfounded/things are ok.

Finally decided to move on from that old chocolatey goodness of Presto-based Opera 12.17 to Opera 28.

 

I absolutely loathe, loathe, LOATHE how it works, but it's getting to the point where Opera 12.17 is becoming too big of a security liability now.

You know you've been married forever when your spouse starts watching something you just watched, and he laughs/snorts/smiles etc. in exactly the same spots as you did, and for exactly the same reasons.

 

We are one person.

People normally snort at what I say, yet I have never been married before...how do you explain that ?

Haven't done in a little while, so time to do some social dancing. Then pick up some dinner on the way home and couch-lounge. Watch some old fave movies. Eat popcorn. Something like that.

 

Apple Watch coming later today, yay for smartphone on your wrist lol

Beam me up, Scotty.

No, it's in whenever battery capacity and processing power increases enough for that thing to be feasible.

 

It's a watch that can barely do what the cheapest smartphone can do and can only hold juice for a day. Watches are man jewelery. Unless you are Italian or something a classy mechanical watch is about all you can get away with. Good craftmanship is manly. That thing cant do anything well.

And is something no one ever should bring in connection with Apple :p

 

Also "meh", smart watches are being made in china now for years.

Lol this thing turns a lot of heads, it's been a real crowd pleaser today

It's not supposed to replace a smartphone, it's more of a companion to one; for looking at information quickly

I have a strong dislike for watches*, and was rather glad to see them go. Aside from people who simply have to have the latest gadget, who has a need for these?

 

* Not all watches. Pocket watches are rather stylish.

Never attribute to malice that which can adequately be explained by incompetence.

I have two basic styles of dancing.

 

--Ballroom (partner).

--The basic 80's dork arm-swing dance that's on fine display in that Terminator bar scene.

As soon as they make an all-black smartwatch that when I yell into it, an all-black self-driving Trans Am spins around the corner to pick me up ... I'll buy it.  

 

Which reminds me, I need to upgrade to an 82 Trans Am

I only have the former (really, anything else will end in tears). :ermm:

Recently I've been focusing more on West Coast Swing more than anything else, with some Hustle thrown in for good measure, but still enjoy other forms as well (I'm not overly found of most smooth -although I do like Waltz-, prefer the slower Latin -e.g. Rumba-, and will always choose Argentine Tango or Milonga over American Tango any day). East Coast is also fun and so is Blues although there's not many opportunities to do that and I mostly end up doing ballroom at a few of the local studios/dances. :thumbsup:

Woke up with blood all over my pillow/shirt. Bloody nose time! I remember when this used to happen to me a lot as a kid. My mother sorta freaked out. Hehee.

 

Going to my cousin's for a birthday party this afternoon. Mmm, cake.

Damn kids running around like headless chickens in the grocery stores today. Almost ran one over, but he was wearing a Chelsea shirt so it would have been justified.

Spent the weekend hiking around the Peak District with my brother in law, beautiful views of the Ladybower reservoir and the finest weather that I have ever seen in Yorkshire. Extremely refreshing for both mind and body, though I have to say my knees are crying blue murder. Spent the night camping in Fearfall woods, what a fantastic name, and am seriously thinking about investing in some property for retirement in this area though Mrs Nonek has yet to grant her blessing.

 

Edit: Phones on the wrist, what Sci-Fi show did I see that on? Quite old if memory serves.

Quite an experience to live in misery isn't it? That's what it is to be married with children.

I've seen things you people can't even imagine. Pearly Kings glittering on the Elephant and Castle, Morris Men dancing 'til the last light of midsummer. I watched Druid fires burning in the ruins of Stonehenge, and Yorkshiremen gurning for prizes. All these things will be lost in time, like alopecia on a skinhead. Time for tiffin.

Fire department have been trying to put out a fire in the next building over. For the last 4 hours... and it's still burning. Amateurs.

 

It's offset by a fair distance to our complex so I should be alight, but boy it stinks to high heaven of molten plastic and I can't exactly open the windows.
