I have never been more a fan of my ammonia pen.

I got bit by a mosquito on the ball of my foot. It itches like a bitch. Hydrocrtisone is not helping. It's a deep, irritating itch that makes me want to cut the bite out.

This thing works.

I felt like relaxing yesterday morning, so I spent about 4 hours just wandering around Skyrim. Picked up a lot of alchemy ingredients, planted some crops, and it's amazing how busy the animal attacks keep you with Hunterborn installed. I just have to wonder, what do the innkeepers think when you walk in and sell them 35 chunks of raw dragon meat? :roll:

Fast forward to today, and I'm driving around my route delivering, when I notice tall weeds with blue flowers. I actually had the turn signal on, and was pulling over before I caught myself! :rofl:

ROFL Vols! Yeah, as spring evolves into summer, I start seeing jute and columbine, and other varieties of clothier and alchemy mats around "the real world". Actually, I love it. Though occasionally husband gives me "that look"....

Yep. Those too. It's kind of amazing that the game plants can look so much like the real plants where I live. I mean.... this isn't a hotbed of "growing things everywhere" - we don't have much cultivated land here. But the wild plants and herbs.... those are what I equate to the game's plants.

Mostly here we have evergreens, cottonwood, poplar, and some "introduced" fruitstock. People plant tomatoes, peppers, beans, peas, cukes, carrots, corn, potatoes. Most of that is hit and miss. On our hill, we stop at tomatoes, peppers, and the occasional cuke. Mostly, we get tomatoes to pick green in October - to ripen in the basement. Then again, we have fresh tomatoes for Thanksgiving most years.

Gotta love basements.

Oh, most years we do get beans. In fact, by the time they quit producing, I'm SO DONE WITH BEANS. *sigh* I don't want to can any more, and unless we go buy another freezer (to replace the one from 1976 that bought the farm), I don't have room to go there.... So mostly I use some, and give the rest away.

hmm it's the tree's and grasses for me, MIrkmire, Shadowfen.. Cypress, Palms, mangroves, sea oats... sawgrass, bunch grass.. etc The purple glowing plant's kinda ruin that.. but that doesn't mean we don't ride slowly along the tide line and... miss Florida. <sigh> the Florida from my youth, not what I was living as an adult.

It does sometimes suck to be away from "home". My family southwest PA for about 10 years, and I always missed it - even though we didn't really go all that far. Few years in Maryland, another year near Philly (ew), and about a year near Indianapolis.

I don't really have a place I think of as "home". Hate the midwest, never going back there - don't do tornadoes! California? NO. The land of the fruits and nuts for sure. Texas? Get bent. Not fond of Utah, though I've lived here forever now. Ditto Nevada.

I really would love to move somewhere cool and very wet - not sure where that might be. I might like Scotland, PEI, New Zealand....

I sent a zip file to someone at work, and about an hour later got an email back that said "how do I open this file?".

It's 2019 and this person is in their 30's. How do they not know what a zip file is.

Oh god. Can't open a zip file??

And yeah Sere, you might like Scotland. Most of the UK really. Or the Netherlands. Expat groups all bitching about the rain in both areas.

Kiwis make me laugh. Friend of mine's WoW arena channel in Discord is called "Big Deck Daddies Arena". "Deck" and "Dick" sound exactly the same when Amitty says them so it's a play on "big dick".

Vvardenfell most resembles my home planet. I return there sometimes, late at night.

Seriously. I'm SEVENTY-ONE. I've been using zip files since the early 90s. Kane, that person is useless.... never going to get it.

I didn't respond. I had to take some time to process that, and they figured it out in the meantime.

In other news; after an uneventful E3 showcase from Bethesda, Todd Howard is apparently having some kind of chat session with Elon Musk on Thursday at E3. Can't help but wonder what that is about.

That's weird. Strange interview idea there.

Also, Glargg, I've never seen the home planet. Was born on the mothership, and I'm still waiting for them to come back for me.
