    I know it's really early for Christmas, but can I get that gift-wrapped with a big red bow ?
    I realize that asking Santa wouldn't work, as he would want to inspect it for "defects" before shipping. I'll take it just as it is. No return policy needed.....

    I never realized that was Kristen Johnson from Third Rock From the Sun. Now it really is Christmas.

    Aye, Roger !
    I notice a small red ribbon.......CLOSE ENOUGH !

    back stretching exercises, hot relaxing shower, 4 Advil, and as soon as the hair dries, it's off to:countingsheep:bed I go

    That's the problem with being an old:fred:Hippie, (most of) the long hair remains. And only about 35% is "pastel blonde".....

    I wouldn't even dare to categorize myself. But, it's true. I only have enough hair left for a bad comb over. So, with one of the few personal choices left to me being to comb over or to not comb over, I choose not to.

    I could do a Zero Mostel "comb-forward" but at considerable risk of looking like Cousin It from the Addams Family !
    So it stays back in a 'tail. If I let it loose, it pops out in all of it's naturally curly splendor.
    And I gave up growing a beard since it's now more Santa than Eric the Red.....:dunno:

    :rofl: The Cousin It look has pluses and minuses. I'm not sure which category providing a habitat for vermin falls into.
    Plus, every day you can ask yourself, "Mullet or pony tail? What kind of day is it going to be?"
    I went from having a red beard as a youngster to a middle aged salt and pepper to today's elfin look.

    NEVER a Mullet. That's a type of fish that's used for:fishing:bait, isn't it

    Is there any difference between Elfin:fred:(Elvin) and Gnome ? And could it be used as part of a disguise in Middle Earth ? :dunno::outtahere:

    The plus/minus might also depend on what KIND of vermin is involved.:cow::deadhorse::elephant::horse::odie::bunny::aod:

    Bait? Fish is found at the butcher's counter at the supermarket.
    Disguise? I would blend in, because these are my people.
    No doubt, it would be some kind of endangered species that would require you to never wash Cousin It for fear of wiping them out.

    Blending is better ! Might even get invited to a nice feast if all went well.
    NO, NO, NO....Nothing that is consumed should EVER be wrapped in plastic. Even when the remains are being thrown out, bio-degradable is used.

    Washing should be acceptable, I'm aware on no species on this planet that can't tolerate at least some moisture:drowning::drowning::drowning:.

    Plus, you could wring out your hair into the N-Sweat-Lager vat.

    I think that should be avoided at ALL costs, unless we're scheduled for a USDA audit.
    Then we tell them it's a culture medium :cheers::cheers::cheers: We're cultured, right ?

    Sure. We save a little from the last batch and add it to the next batch. We save on cleaning costs that way.

    Sounds like a recipe for ptomaine soup if I ever heard one:fred:

    I've got some ptomaine soup brewing in the back of the fridge. I'm afraid to put it in the garbage disposal. But, one of the interns wanted it for his compost heap.

    Might work. But, being an Intern, he might try to clone it !
    That's something I've thought about with MY chili. But, once it hits critical mass, it's self simmering.
    I've never even been able to keep a batch around long enough to determine it's half-life. Everybody keeps eating it before the experiments are done :( And some folks have been known to come back for seconds:alex:

    Seconds is pretty much mandatory for me. It's a major victory when I don't succumb to temptation and go back for another big plate.

    Guilty as charged....
    I've been known to eat enough of my own chili, and Aunties onion bread, that I waddled away from the table, still wanting MORE !
    Rather like a kid with a bag full of GOOD chocolate candy on Halloween !
    This is also the reason that we buy sweet corn only 4 ears at a time. The urge to make & eat far, far more is strong in this one....

    Just saw RBG of the Supreme's passed away. :dancing:A notable jurist, and I'll leave it at that.
