  1. Pets - 2017

    I've been browsing through the forum and saw that there is actually a Pets - 2015 and Pets - 2016 thread, but no 2017 edition yet, so I decided to create one for us to discuss the little critters in our lives, mine are two cuddly Siamese cats named Megan and Maggie. Both are playful and very active during the morning, heck, their energy doesn't run out until 1 in the morning, so my wife and I would have to pet them for a short while in order for us to get a good night's sleep. We usually take them with us during our road trips, though we would have to settle them in in our pet carriers as they like to pounce around, even when the car is moving. Nonetheless, they are a bundle of joy and have been an integral part of our family since they were kittens. How about you guys? Feel free to share your pet stories.
  2. Book Title scramble

    Here's another book title scramble to solve: HTE AKDR WTREO
  3. The Last Film You Saw - 2017

    I agree with this. I enjoyed the first two installments more than this third movie.
  4. What are you listening to?

    An uplifting song from another great singer.
  5. What are you listening to?

    Oh my! This is definitely a great find! Thank you very much for sharing, poppy! I may have to check out her other songs as well.
  6. This is a great recipe, Kell! Thank you very much for sharing it with us!
  7. The Last Film You Saw - 2017

    I still haven't got a chance to see this. I might be able to check it out within this week.
  8. World Poetry Day

    These are great poems, chaliepud. Thank you very much for sharing them with us!
  9. Black Mirror

    Black Mirror may be a satire of our modern society, but I can't help but feel that it also borrows that eery concept from the Twilight Zone.
  10. What are you listening to?

    A little change of tempo for today.
  11. My electricity bill was running suspiciously high, so I had the power company send someone over. He found a wire tapped into my house running to my neighbor's, as to which I exclaimed: "Well, Watt do you know? A Joule thief lives next to my Ohm!"
  12. The Last Film You Saw - 2017

    I would love to see this as well. I'm not really a fan of Ansel Elgort, but from what I've heard, he gave a pretty good performance in this.
  13. What are you listening to?

    Here's another lovely song from Norah Jones. It's one of those tunes you simply listen to on a day off while sipping coffee. Very calming, indeed.
  14. What are you listening to?

    A lovely song from a very lovely woman. Nora has always been my crush.
  15. The Last Film You Saw - 2017

    Me too. I'm glad they decided to continue and dwell deeper into the whole Harry Potter lore, or at least the Wizarding World as a whole.
