    We fill prescriptions at the local supermarket all the time. Normally just use the wait period to pick up a few things, granted the store it`s in is always over priced on everything. We don`t really have much in the way of local pharmacies in the neighborhood so it`s easier then going to the other end of town.

    Laying in bed still trying to force myself to roll out like a transformer.

    occasionally Oz , mainly Canada
    Just ate a 100 grand bar. They're hard to find in Canada where I am. Plus I was sick all week and had to fast. No fun especially since for five months I've been on an eating one day/fast the next day regimen. (with a some cheat days thrown in) I've lost quite a bit of weight -- I can almost fit into the size 2 jeans of my twenties. But I'm really proud of my brother he has lost over fifty pounds.

    Procrastinating over making a simple dinner. Why? You tell me!

    Argh....!!!! I am also kill'n the repetition in my book. Either obvious, where the Character preforms the same action twice (basically)

    He went over to check the statues.
    "You got them all," checking over the statues.

    This is just a pour example, my story isn't quite written this way. :p though the repetition is there. and of course there is this habbit I d.

    "What do you think you are doing?" Kristol asked.

    Sigh.

    Well from the right pitcher it might. :p
    Though in the context, I hope it was a
    decent mold. :p

    Hacking into @John-Wayne's book, sneakily replacing all his strong verbs with weak ones. You know, just to give him something to do.

    :p

    Actually, just settling down to watch some playoff football.

    :superlaugh:, God, no wonder why editing seems like an endless cycle. Should have suspected the squirrel. Stop squirreling with my story, :supercheeky:. I got a personal deadline to meet.

    Don't believe that football ruse for a second, JW! Look at the expression on that wiley squirrel's face! He's even wearing a fedora! Never trust a squirrel in a fedora, I tell you! :eek:

    Say... @minstrel , was that you my aunt caught gnawing on the porch rails back in November?

    :D

    Dunno. Does your aunt have peanut butter flavored porch rails? If yes, and she lives in the Pacific Northwest of the USA, then quite possibly yes. I'd also advise her to get some porch rails flavored with habanero peppers. We hate those.

    Those 3/11 videos must hit awfully close to home, sir, considering where you live.

    The weird thing is, I've been procrastinating with tsunami videos lately, too. And blizzards. I've had no resistance at all against YouTube leading me down the garden path with blizzards.

    We've got a bit of snow falling as I write. Enough to be pretty on my evergreens with the Christmas lights still on them, but not enough to be dramatic about.

    It's third and ten in the bottom of the seventh! Mahomes drops back - a play-action fake - he shoots, he scores! They're going for a two-point conversion! Oh, no - penalized for traveling! That's two outs! Double fault! They're bogeying this inning for sure! GOOOOOOAAALLLLLLL!!!!

    I actually felt the earthquake despite being 500 miles away. Was sitting at the computer on a day off and the building started to roll gently on the waves. I didn't realize it was serious for a few hours, my wife and I were at dinner in a pub with a TV and I saw the clip of the burning houses floating through the rice fields in Sendai, so I sent a hurried email to friends and family letting them know I was nowhere nearby the problem.
