Not as much as I did when I was six. Or nine. It's hard to really appreciate them when you don't see them directly once in a while.
TPBM appreciates LIchtenstein, and only in part because he has a polka...

Pretty much.
TPBM finds it amusing that Sic Pup mentioned dots in what was supposed to be a post about Roy Lichtenstein AND that I picked up another shoe post.

All I drink all day is water. If I increased my intake, I'd have a serious case of the bloats.

I'd recommend Klosterman's latest, I Wear the Black Hat: Grappling with Villains (Real and Imagined) .It's really thought provoking, I stop to ponder on almost every page.

TPBM has known a real life villain and lived to tell about it.

I've known a person or two on the sociopathic spectrum. They're much better in the movies. :shock:

(I can't wait to read that book, Sic Pup! I saw you mention it in the "What are you reading?" thread and now it's finally on my hold list!)

why yes I do (sort of). I've got a big book containing legislation on my desk and it is rather dull. But then I have to type some analysis about said legislation, so maybe I am a computer jockey.

TPBM really, really wants to know what legislation I am reading. :lol:

I'm not sure what that is (or for that matter whether I want to know).

I'm in my own little bubble, I don't go to dance camps, and don't go to the burns. I'm not sure my reporting would interest you.

tpbm will not admit to having had scabies.

That's true because I haven't. I'll go on to say I'm not even sure what they are (in which case the second sentence may invalidate the first).

True; I worked all day on the CORE project for our area.

TPBM hasn't worked out transportation to/from BRC yet.
When he lights his streetlamp, it is as if he brought one more star to life, or one flower.
When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep.
That is a beautiful occupation.

Ahahahaha! I believe I only ever plonked two people for the mild crime of being annoying, and it's been years since I've seen either one of them--and almost equally long since I've been able to. Moderators can't really plonk. Good thing I didn't get used to it. :lol:

The person below me is googling "plonk".
