  1. Today is also my Friday. Don't go back to work until next Friday. Might take that day off as well. Good Friday (tomorrow) and Easter Monday are national holidays, and then it's followed by ANZAC day on Thursday (essentially NZ's version of Memorial day). Two days of vacation time to get 6 days off, or 3 vacation days to get 10 straight off.
  2. Neither do I. Luckily NZ has a Netflix-style service that streams all the good shows & movies. Can watch via my Playstation.
  3. Thought it was a good episode in the sense that it was a refresher of where everyone is and showed some decent reunions. Curious to see how each of the storylines play out from here.
  4. I do remember the PE being the most mentally draining day of my life. Mrs Dex took me out to dinner after she picked me up and I was absolutely numb for the rest of the weekend. The beer I had with dinner that night was the best tasting drink I can remember despite being a Coors Light...
  5. My one and only addition to the thread...
  6. Before forcing yourself in the the house purchase rat race, you have to take a serious look at the math to see if it's worth it. Between closing costs, agent fees, moving costs, etc against the gain in equity and rise in house values, Mrs Dex and I found that we would have to own it for at least 10 years just to break even (at least when we lived in Denver). If we planned on moving any more frequently than that, it was actually better to rent and put the balance into some type of retirement savings plan. Additionally, and you're going to laugh at this, we spend less money on "stuff" because we rent. We know we're going to move fairly regularly (every few years), so we don't buy something unless we're comfortable having to move it later.
  7. $1500? That's good enough for 2 weeks of rent here...
  8. Absolutely loved skiing at Steamboat. It was our Xmas go-to before we had kids.
  9. @akwooly are you talking about Sledge's "With the Old Breed"? I read that as part of a WW2 history class I took in college. There were a couple other books we read for tha class and I still have them at home. If I remember, I'll post a list tonight.
  10. The Real Housewives of Hazzard County. He didn't want to miss this next episode where Daisy Duke...
  11. While both are allowed, when I took the exam (10+ years ago) anything not worn or currently in use had to be off of the table. That included closed reference books, clocks, food/drinks, etc.
  12. Outlook has the option to add a poll. When you draft an email, under the "Options" tab there is a "Use Voting Options".
  13. Update on our kitty: She was on multiple meds through the Xmas break, and each were stopped as the prescriptions ran out until she was only on one type of eye drops. Took her to the vet a few times over the course of this period with the last visit about a month ago where the vet said the ulcer is gone. Kitty's eye was still cloudy white and didn't seem to bother her much, but because the ulcer was healed the vet switched the eye drops to something to help clear up the cloudiness. The eye is much clearer now and the pupil responds to light, so we are to the belief that her vision is back. Still a little cloudy so we're continuing the eye drops. Vet was genuinely surprised that the eye survived the whole thing. She thought the best case was that we wouldn't need surgery to remove it and that she would remain blind in the eye. Kitty used to really fight getting her meds, but now she is more or less used to it. Still doesn't like it and usually wants to go outside for 20-30 minutes after each dose (2-3 times a day). Not sure if she stopped fighting because it's just so common, or if she's realizing that it's helping her (or both). Regardless, it's good seeing the kitty being a little happier. She's been promoted to almost full-time indoors, only really going outside after her meds or to go piss, and she has found a couple places inside that are "hers" (foot of the bed & one chair/pillow in the living room).
  14. As a UNC fan, I cannot in good faith have Duke go any further than the Elite 8.
