Is it the dirt that is no longer available to be removed? The apartment/house/kitchen moving towards all the dirt being stuck and irremovable?
I don't really understand it, but I do have some observations.

No, I'm waiting for the next big eplaya outbreak of root punning. I've got a really good one on "mangle-werzel" that I've been polishing for years.

I'll have to skirt that one. I do understand saving a good pun, and working on it until it is just right. Leave no pun untuned.
the person below me wants to have a go at the lady's wear pun.... play through.

I'd prefer Bbadger's dry humor driving people crazy instead of puns.

Oh, definitely not. You folks have me chuckling on a regular basis. Especially the fish.

The person below me is a polyglot.

When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep.
That is a beautiful occupation.

Yes, when I was a teenager… my best friend and I had a code derived from the police/ham "10-codes". We didn't say the "ten" part, and adapted some of the common ones to fit our needs. Some examples;
10-3 "Stop transmitting": To us, "Three" meant "Shut the fuck up about that in front of these people!"
10-8 "In service": To us,"Eight" meant anything generally good.
10-9 "Did not copy, repeat please": To us, "nine" meant anything generally bad.
10-12 "Visitors Present": To us, a "Twelve" was anyone near us who wouldn't know what we were saying, but usually it meant a girl. An "Eight Twelve" was a good looking girl… a "Nine Twelve" wasn't.

I love Friday the 13 - I got married on a Friday the 13th with a full moon, and we've been together 27 years now. My dad was born on the 13, so he gets a Friday the 13th every 6 or 7 years (leap years always screw me up in remember how often dates repeat) - he's in his early 80s and in better health than I, and never saw a doctor from his late 20s into his 60s. The date is all good to me!

I probably am. It's not any formal superstition, and I'm not sure that I have a lucky shirt, for instance. Sometimes, I do catch myself beliving something along those lines, and I try and take myself aside and gently remind myself that it's not true, and then gently remind myself that superstition is born from the way the human mind is organized and that I'll never rid myself of it completely.
tpbm instantly thought "5 or 6 years", because (except for centuries not divisible by 400) there will be at least one leap year, every seven years.

not really secret but as healthy as I ever eat I can never give up cheese. I can be happy snacking on cheese alone.

TPBM loves cheese as well.

I'm luving me some Lonesombri after reading his post! That was an epic rant so I was applauding. I wish him excellent luck and/or karma.

TPBM is still trying to get the emotional energy up to make the schwag they thought up over the winter.

I need the transfer case, clutch, transmission, that turns emotional energy into actual physical work. It seems to be a generally untapped resource of mine, or it gets burned off like the gas fire on top of an oil refinery.

It's about seeing your friends once a year. And it's about making your art happen. It's about driving your physical/emotional/intellectual/spiritual/artistic to the very end of your beliefs and moving past them. It's about rearranging your life to make a dream come true.

TPBM wants to hide under the covers and think about this.

Hate it. The two (plus the kitty horde) of us have slept very comfortably in a double bed for decades now, it feels weird when it's just me & the cats.

Slept on a double for months in Australia and didn't fit on it, but thats only because im too tall. add cats and that would probably be torture.
