They were, although NOT freezing to death is also very exciting

I got lucky, and by that I mean VERY lucky, that they came to put in the new furnace the same night my old one died. Plus I saved a shitload because of my service agreement and prior relationship with the company.

Yes, not freezing to death is excellent. Glad you got a good buy.

More plane tickets:

July 31 - San Diego to Pittsburgh; August 3 - Pittsburgh to Omaha

(From Phoenix to SD I will be on an organized tour.)

Also booked hotel rooms for all of those trips. I'm gonna have a busy summer!

I enjoyed it. It's a little dark in some parts and surprisingly silly and lighthearted in others. I thought Bradley Cooper did a very good job portraying a bi-polar personality, delusions and psycho-babble and all. My sister has been diagnosed, at various times, as bi-polar and narcissistic, and I totally recognized the behaviors. But it also deals with the main character's Dad, an OCD sports fanatic. So there's humor, sports fans, dancing, grieving, mental illness, family issues, love, infidelity, and how to move on from loss.

But I am very partial to Bradley Cooper, so I might be a bit biased.
Yeah, I thought it was different but pretty good. I just don't know anyone else who saw it (other than the friend I had seen it with) so I was interested in what you thought. And Bradley Cooper is growing on me. I liked the lead actress in it too.

A good buy is much better than a "goodbye".

^ So have you dumped your landline yet? That's the first thing I did after I got my iPhone.

My mum did that upgrade (From an Ericsson brick to a Samsung flatpack) this Christmas; it was her very first tap/swipe/shake operated device -and very much fun for the whole family to watch her learning how to use it

[It was also fun to see how dad coped with mums old phone (poor thing always gets her hand-me-downs)]

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I bought 4 kg of Smilla fish cat hard food, plus one kilo of the same brand Sensible taste. Also, a tube of malt paste against hairballs, and a play rod kinda thing with huge feathers (the last one they wrecked, but they LOVE this kind).

All together, 21,50 euros. Not bad. Smilla is cheap but good food.

I don't doubt that, but I first read your post as you buying 'smelly' fish cat food

May be because I have these anti-plaque cat treats, you see, and they're fishy-smelly
