not only am i sick as a dog (i've forgotten how much earaches HURT dammit), starting tomorrow is "TV Turn-off Week." Which, at my son's school, means 10 days with no screens. No Computer, no Android, no anything (not work-related). And i, being the supportive mom, will suffer with him.

(Mr. Frenzy laughs at us hippies and goes back to SWTOR)

Fortunately, e-readers don't count if you're reading a book. Time to read the last Harry Dresden book (been saving it).

So i'll see you all in a WoT week. Try not to have TOO much fun. :p

suddenly I'm afraid of a highly trained ninja squirrel army taking over the world. I mean, before, I always thought thre's no way Frenzy has time for all the training, but now...

They just had to extend it to computers, eh? I would have no problem at all with the TV thing. But my laptop? Oh hell no.

What possible educational value could that have? I suppose it makes the young'ins read books and seek out other sources of entertainment, in theory, but surely TVs and computers are such ingrained parts of our society these days that there can be no value other than in a historical "how people lived last century" way?

Chess... or Magic: The Gathering.

When my lady and I (and the cat of course) moved house in August we were without TV and Internet for a while.

So much to her chagrin she was taught the fine art of MagicTG :D

Although, I would suggest sticking with Chess. Fewer arguments in Chess.

From my understanding, cucumbers are very popular in Greek cooking.

Sure, all chopped up. Not certain how that helps anyone, Dav.

There is a Greek place near me that has a grilled cheese Gyro. I stick with the normal Gyro with Cucumbers in my Tzatziki sauce.

I was going to ask if I can even contact you, but that would be rather dumb on an MB you can't read. LOL

Chess... or Magic: The Gathering.

My Saproling deck is still my greatest triumph. Nothing like a horde of green weenies breathing down your neck.

And, to tip my hat to Frenzy, I do play a squirrel deck now and then.

To pay homage to the other random comments in the thread, the place where cucumbers and hippies ever shall meet: 13 Ways to Use Cucumbers (http://www.care2.com/greenliving/13-ways-to-use-cucumbers.html?page=1)
