I would prefer to have a maid service do all this nonsense. I don't have one, but I would prefer it.

Now Gyppo is a Jinn? Let me get my list.

Frank, she was cute and all, but there is still dust everywhere over here.

Alma told me my new vacuum cleaner was 'scary'.  I thought she might like the purple colour, but apparently that didn't impress her enough to overcome the 'scariness'.

I told her it was the same as the old one, just a different colour.

"That's as maybe, but it's still scary."

Laura:  Sorry, my 'Jinn like' abilities are not for hire.

Is it the noise, or their voracious appetite for anything which isn't nailed down.

My great-niece is in the fifth grade in Arizona. One of her classmates brought a knife to school. Now it was just a table knife, not a steak knife or butcher knife or anything that would really cut knife, but ... She was able to be stopped from hurting herself or others. And they are trying to find a way to help the kid rather than punish or criminalize the kid. As soon as adults were made aware of the knife thing (they aren't even allowed to have plastic knives at school), they actually acted on it rather than ignore it and let it escalate. So better than expected outcome.

Glad they are handling that situation well. Middle school is rough. That's a transitional age, especialy for girls.

The administration ignored repeated reportings of the kid with the gun who shot his teacher, that any reports now are actually being followed up on. At least I hope they are all over the place and not just in that one school.

Here I am, just a girl on the internet winning.

Can't allow that to happen too often ;-)

I think we should make sure that she isn't, in fact, winning. That would be a travesty when I prefer to win.

Argos online stores are idiots.

They asked me to review my recent purchase of a vacuum cleaner, which I would be quite willing to do.

But they want me to 'turn off your adblocker as it may interfere with your ability to post a review.'

So they can go to hell.  They lose out on a positive review.  Their loss, not mine.  Other firms manage perfectly well with my adblocker turned on.  Apparently not all algorithms are equal ;-)

Tossers.

As far as winning goes,I've been grinding away on fallout 76...
