Maybe I'll ask my aunt to take me grocery shopping.


Tell her to load up on seasonal veggies and that you'll fill in the difference when you get there?

The problem is, I'm only there for just over a day. I get in around 3.30, and she can't drive in the dark, and it would probably be dark by the time we got to the shop, bought stuff, and got out (since we have nearly an hour's drive from New Paltz to Pine Plains). Also, I'm super picky and have loads of allergies. I really don't like other people shopping for me - it makes me feel awkward and uncomfortable.

Ah that is balls. Tell her that you want to treat her and it's just darn easier because of all the allergies?

Ha, well, I just talked to my cousin. She said either she or her mom (my aunt) should be able to run me to the shop when I get there. I'll just tell my grandma not to worry. Now I just need to remember to buy some candy for my cousins kids.

I'm having a similar problem. My computer is broken so I have to check FB and email on my phone and it's only limited.

Just watched this on Netflix streaming. Not sure what happened. Not sure if show actually exists. Not sure if I actually exist. Oh god, what is this.

Maybe I'll ask my aunt to take me grocery shopping.

Just ask for simple stuff like hummus, veggies, fruit, bread, peanut butter. My 94 year-old British grandma had no idea what vegan was, so she asked the workers at the shop, and I ended up with a plethora of vegan things. She also made a ratatouille, which I think is kind of a dish that grandmas know how to make. I know it can be awkward to ask for things that they probably won't be able to make (tofu, noodles), but for a visit you can easily survive on the vegan convenience-y basics.

If your grandma actually knows how to email, she's heaps above most grandmas!

I'm going to a potluck today, consisting mostly of people that don't cook. Recent years haven't yielded KFC, Pizza Hut, grocery deli salads and such. I'm interested to see what delights are there this year. I really like the people though so I don't mind. I have my pasta salad and tofurkey sausages so I'm good to go.

It's either the greatest cinematic accomplishment in history, or a waking nightmare. I'm not sure which.

I might give that a watch tomorrow!

My laptop is driving me insane. It keeps deleting everything I write. Need a new one soooo bad.

So I managed to wear the dog out. I brought her on a 2 hour walk in the woods. I managed to find the longest possible route in them today. She slept for 3 hours when we got home. The first hour I watched her in amazement then the 2nd two I joined her and had a nap. It was bliss.

How often do Mods/Admin log in to the boards? It appears we have a spammer

And the mods always ask to not reply to any spam, it makes it more difficult to delete.

It's funny, I am a mod on a rat rescue forum that runs on this platform and I had apparently completely forgotten about the report button *bad mod* LOL

I think I live in a reasonably safe neighbourhood cause I never notice anything bad.

According to the newspaper, yesterday evening the police raided a fast food place less than a 100 yards away from me, arrested 15 people, found weapons (mostly knives) and hard-drugs (I assume cocaine etc). Because of the amount of drugs they found, the place will be closed on mayor orders for an unknown time.

Occasional news like this is why I prefer to meet visitors some where in town and accompany them to my house.

I just spent an hour nerding with my derby gear. My new toe stops and toe covers got in, so I spent time tweaking my skates, cleaning them, attaching the new parts. Also, I may or may not be wearing my helmet while typing this.

I am going to guess in favour of you wearing it while typing ;)
