Flurries only. We had about a 1/2 " last night.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Love the greens and legumes of Ethiopian food.  I'm not a vegetarian because of Chinese Barbecued Pork but if I had to be I could because of this food.

Altu's restaurant in East Lansing is excellent.  She makes the best lima beans I have ever had in my life.  If you follow the link you will see that some of her food is not vegetarian but vegetarian and vegan dinners love this place.

I'd do something that the medicos are close to doing ... make polio extinct. Selfish to be sure, but it is a terrible disease and I had it as a child and now am still feeling the results as an adult. No one needs this.

I'm going for small, targeted annihilation -- the topic says delete one thing.

A small stuffed dog who was green and white. His ears said MSU which didn't mean much to a kid living in Burlington VT. I don't know what happened to him and slowly forgot about him until I moved to Lansing MI for a job. Seems my dad almost went to graduate school at MSU and bought the dog when he was out here for an interview. Years later I finally arrived in Lansing, like I was supposed to live here but it took a bit longer than it could have.

Well the singular on the word bookshelf was a bit disconcerting, but the conclusion for me would be that I read a lot.

Between my home and office I have about 34 linear feet (+/- 10 foot error) of floor to ceiling bookcases -- full! This does not count what I have in my rec room which is using full book cases as insulation as well as storage. What it would tell someone about me is that I have eclectic tastes. You will find Art, Animation, Computer Graphics, Web Design, Math, Physics, Computer Science, Computer Programming, assorted specific software books, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Mystery and other genre fiction. I just started with what was closest to me at this moment and continued.

On occasion people have come into my house and asked the dumb question -- "have you read all of these?". Yep! I read a LOT! but still have lots of room on the walls for art.

Had a Maine Coon (she of this user pic) and when I went to register her they typoed her name. It was more trouble than it was worth to contact Cat Fancy and fix the spelling. When I wanted a new alias I found that this misspelling was not used anywhere and so I adopted it.

I still pronounce it as it should be not how it is spelled.

[Error: unknown template qotd] I have been hosting dinner at my house for many years. I cook turkey, dressing and gravy. Everything else comes with the guests. The menu has been varied over the years.

Confront. It doesn't matter if it offended me or not, if it is offensive that must be stated. Always speak the truth, a lie of omission is still a lie.

I do tend to tilt (at windmills!?) for others who are reluctant to speak up. Usually fear is involved and I cannot say that I have no fear as much as I have nothing to loose. It is a good place to be. Stubborn old Yankee if nothing else.

Some place with a view. Fully handicapper accessible, green, off the grid. I'd like to be on some body of water, look at mountains and need to be easy driving distance to the ocean.

Not asking for much. This place is for sale, hummm.

Landline.

I own a cellphone although I didn't buy the #@%$# thing. It lives in my car and is only used to make outgoing emergency calls.

I am saved from student cell phone usage in my classes by the wondrous fact that our classrooms are about 20 feet underground. No one gets cell phone reception, hurrah. Get to watch lots of people running out the back doors (which are at ground level). Unfortunately outside my office door is close enough to outside so that I often get to listen to idiots.

[Error: unknown template qotd] Whining -- child or adult. Excuses with whining a close second. The loud base from inside the car driving by -- and I'm inside my car with the windows rolled up, third.
