  •  safe & good company. short day, ate too much! (9+ / 0-)

    we got started late & guest has early gigs tomorrow, so it was short. but sweet. all the food we started cooking got finished cooking, although we ended up with a couple of non-starters.

    we had good conversation & watched a couple of Dr Who's. a rather lengthy process, as guest is Who-Noob and has a bit of difficulty following. but then, hey, so do we the first couple of viewings! witty dialog, delivered very fast in a variety of marked UK accents, and a lot of background noise in sound track (effects, music, etc.) make for interesting listening. I swear I'd like to just turn on the captioning sometimes, but can't QUITE convince others!

    very nice low-key day. our junior hermit had a nice conversation with the guest about origami (which he's done several humdingers of the last week or so), and flyable paper airplanes!

    clean-up is almost done, stock pot going good! sent numerous doggy-bags home with guest (she LIKES dark meat, and is as big a fan of our roast potatoes as we are! and is nice enough to enjoy my cranberry relish too!)

    "real" work : a job where you wash your hands BEFORE you use the bathroom...

    •  Closed captioning is hilarious (5+ / 0-)

      the typos, the dropped words, the flat out wrong words at times. If there's a typist in an odd mood, you can get riffs and side comments, too.

      Of course, if it's a DVD, the closed captioning is much more precise.

      I'm waiting for NetFlix and Amazon Prime to get closed captioning.

      All knowledge is worth having. Check out OctopodiCon to support steampunk learning and fun. Also, on DKos, check out the Itzl Alert Network.
