@lyxzen @missy @rambo My first real job started when I was around 16. I worked for the same company that my parents worked in, hand-sewing shoes. It was actually a pretty big business up here for quite a while. My first job there was hand-stitching the sides of the shoes to the tongue of the shoe.

You're basically sewing with 2 needles at the

Crazy! There are certain things that you just don't think about very often - Pretty cool to learn a little about how some shoes are made!
raindogdude:
Awesome post!

@lyxzen @missy @rambo This one is a bit late, but I couldn't for the life of me think of anyone famous that I had met. Then I remembered my second year at college. There was some soap opera promotion in town, and one of my fraternity brothers worked for the local television station. He talked one of the soap stars to come over to...

We have two cats we have raised from kittens. They are brother and sister from the same litter.

Their names are Miss Kitty and Garfield.

To go back a number of years, we've always had cats here. Our neighbors have always had cats. Ours are indoor cats (which escape from time to time cause they're sneaky). Theirs are outdoor cats. We had a

They are super cute kitties, and I think it's funny ms kitty bring in slain leaves and twigs

@1akbrian She's so proud of them, you'd think she brought down a deer for the freezer.

But @catdad showed me where I can play The Bard's Tale. I just ate up this day, died a lot, and need to find my old maps. I don't think I have the patience to draw them out again like 25 years ago. SQUEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

The Bard's Tale....man, I haven't played this in years...no, decades! Damn, I'm getting old... ;)

@baalseraph I couldn't find any of my maps for the first game, so I've been playing Bard's Tale 3.  The game glitches when you change over your mage class to learn new spells.  That part kinda sucks.  I've played Wasteland too, but i die and the game freezes.  Still worth playing though.

So I hit it on the wing with a fly swatter. It fell to the floor. As I went over to finish the job, it apparently ate some spinach, got back up and flew at me. I swatted it again, on the wing, and I heard it crash into something and disappear. I think I have a huge, pissed off, wounded, angry hornet jacked up...

And so, the hellish war between man and super hornets began... we must send someone back in time to kill the first hornet...

@lyxzen @rambo @missy Poof, a genie has just granted me 3 wishes! Wishing for more wishes is not an option. My first wish would be a selfish one. I would wish for enough money so that I could buy whatever I needed for me and my family to live comfortably.

My second wish would be that the world would have universal language and belief system

And I'm crossing my fingers for you

universal language and universal belief system? that would be a good definition of hell for me :(

@rambo @missy @lyxzen Initially, I was going to skip this homework. I'm not really big into artists, and ones I like are usually like Picasso and Georgia O'keefe. But then I read @dmaggot blog and thought, comic book artists, oh yeah! Todd McFarlane. His artwork was so amazing for some of my favorite Marvel series.

It broke my heart when he and Jim

Truly great 

@oneimill @dmaggot

I figured I would also show a few pics of my collections.

These are all the comic books.

I seem to have lost 1 picture of a bookshelf, and I didn't bother to do the 2 bookshelves in the cellar. I also forgot to mention my Playboy collection. It's complete from around 81 to now, and only missing a few each

Awesome collections, and selfie challenge achieved.
wizard0:
Thanks @raindogdude .  @catdad It's almost all clothes, books and playboys.  I might actually have some space without those.  @oneimill Thanks, I wish I could have put up the playboys, but that would be a ton more work.

@bloghomework @rambo @lyxzen Wow, it's like a topic with me in mind! First off, I'm a packrat. I don't throw things away if I think there's a chance I can use it at some point in the future. While in school, I used to keep 2 inch long pencils, because you could still almost write with them, and there was still...

This is just the most impressive blog post ever! wow! I really want pictures!
wizard0:
I'll see what I can do @ivylina

1. I love cartoons. Mostly Looney Tunes and the old Hanna-Barbara cartoons, but also all of the Disney and Pixar ones.

2. When shampooing my hair in the shower, I need to rinse off my hands before I can rinse off my hair.

3. My pinky fingers are naturally curved. I can't straighten them.

4. I have one leg an inch or two shorter...

Oh I love love love cartoons. So much. I watch them all the time. Why wash your hands first? Boobs are better than sex? If that is true, I'd flash you before anyone else. For sure. If my nipples are ever exposed, it's to you, for you are truly deserving! 
wizard0:
@tbars Don't get me wrong, if I can see what's going on, I'll take the sex over the flash, but I'll take the flash over not being able to see anything.  And Yay!  I'm first!!
