  • On Apple computers, I have mentally referred to the clover symbol (on the Apple button next to the space bar) as a "squiggly" because I did not know what it was called for a long time. It doesn't look like a damn clover to me.

      I always called it the "Apple key", because it tends to hide where the windows key does. The actual symbol was the "loop de loop."

      Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

      • I had a teacher in a graphic design class I took who called it the "splat key" because it looked like something had been, well, splatted. It was evocative enough that I've called it that ever since, which gets confusing if I actually say it out loud in conversation.

        • Even if this recipe for slow cooker Bacon-Wrapped BBQ Chicken turns out to be a fail on the palate, it makes the house smell fabulous.

And this is why I don't allow myself to do it, get lost in this particular never-ending loop of OCD, in the false relief kicked up by eradicating an enemy that wasn't truly threatening me.
            Ack. I have lost way too much time recently pondering how much bacteria is on the mouse, and on the keyboard, and on the not-oft-enough-laundered handtowel in the office bathroom, and on the door handles of the bathroom, and on the printer ... and on and on and on ...

            And then I tell myself I shouldn't eat lunch at my desk because that's how the food bacteria gets on the mouse, and on the keyboard, and I wonder just how much of it is living there already now, and how I can subtly clean all this stuff in the office without looking like the OCD freak which I think my colleagues already suspect I am (though they are very kind). And then I look at my hands which I wash so often they are awfully dry (but I don't use handcream because it feels horrid and leaves greasy and no doubt germy gunk on my mouse and on my keyboard) and wonder if I wash them often enough. And on and on and on.

            *sigh* Thank you GP for reminding me I'm not alone. It comes and goes in waves. Sometimes I can forget about it for a bit, but if I start thinking about it too much then I just feel grubby all the time.

            • In the desperate search to solidify Panda's gender in my head, I googled Jack Spade (and was dismayed to see that the bags are marketed to the opposite gender to what I believe Panda to be - however the bag shown on the homepage looks very gender neutral and would work well for a woman) and was shocked that there is an option to "shop bags under $200". Wow... ok, let's click this little red x here and not look at that page...

              Panda, as always, I love your stories.

              • Yall do know that on Panda's blog, in the post on being gay, GP confirms gender, right?

                  • I thought it was that post. S/he may have edited it. It may have been another one. S/he has inadvertently revealed gender, even if only briefly. It was in one of the posts about being gay, that much I remember. Mentions the gender s/he likes by title. If you want, PM me and I can give it away. Or you can dig it up yourself or keep the mystery. I'm not the one to reveal it openly.

                        Ah, ok. Like I said, I won't spill it openly. I know many here enjoy the mystery.

                        • Dang it, Naiad. Now I know I could know- which makes knowing whether or not I want to know even harder! (It would make telling other people about our GP a bit easier, but would take out some of the fun)

                          • GP have you ever read Mark Tufo. In his story of zombies the main hero is a germ-a-phobe. It is hillarious. I think that is one reason i like the series.

                                yeah you are

                                Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
