    falling_dance can give you a list of video references in her next ToT. They can certainly add a drop of goodness into life.

Incidentally, I have no idea at all what is being represented by a smilie portraying a sheep skipping.
    Not everyone experiences ASMR, that pleasant heaviness at the back of one's head which is neither a sign of nor , and different things work for different people. Voices I find extremely pleasant to listen to will strike others as nasal, creepy, or saccharine. That said, here are a few that I like:

    - Haiying Yang makes tea. I've posted a link to one of her ink grinding videos in this thread before.

    - Goldmark Gallery videos often give me ASMR vibes. This one, about Danish potter Anne-Mette Hjortshøj, is especially relaxing for me. Don't worry about the beast; s/he doesn't take up very much screen time.


    - I've only skipped around this comedic ASMR video--it runs to nearly an hour--but skipping around has been fun: "It took me five years to master this tie's triggers."

    - "Sounds of Rummaging Through Purse" - No talking; just the sounds suggested by the title.

    No, I've never posted a review on Yelp.com before.

    the feeling of writing with a pen
    or
    typing?

    Finally, teenage bullies shouldn't be drawn and quartered, only sent on a no-return trip though space as a Voyager Golden Record of earthling non-tolerance of predatory behavior.

    Ah yes. The mellifluous talk of the ink grinders. Zola should have written a novel about their struggle.

    I'll take your word for it. It reminded me rather of when, in days gone by, the hospital had enough money to allow the patients to do pottery. I made some nice things. : Hurries away and weeps bitterly.

    I'm content to do either. But over the last ten years or so, my handwriting has deteriorated badly because I type almost everything.

    In general, and of course being honest, would you describe your photographic skills as:

    Excellent
    Good
    Fair
    Poor
    Purple Box Brownie

    My photographic skills are even poorer than my judgment where suggesting ASMR videos is concerned.

    Have you ever caught yourself bickering with in anti-fan in a way which feels too uberish or petulant for your sense of online self-respect?

    - eys
    - non (:laughs at f_d, who has: )
    - purple what's supposed to differentiate online self-respect from the regular kind?

    Sparks love of berevity in writing comes from:
    Laziness,
    Learning to be the fastest note taker in the West (in the olden days with chisel and stone),
    Writing piles of clincal notes,
    Purple none of the above,
    Purple all of the above?

    Purple all of the above.

    Along with whipped cream, which is best in a mangelwurzel milkshake?

    sage
    rosemary
    thyme
    parsley
    a bay leaf
    cinnamon
    curry powder

    Chopped Rosemary? Perhaps cinnamon. I shall try some in the morning and report back.

    Essential for a decent curry:

    Cinnamon
    Cardomom
    Chillies (fresh, dried or powdered (please state )
    Turmeric
    Coriander (but you Rude 'Mericans call it something else, don't you?)
    Garlic
    Cumin
    Ghee
    Additions to the list welcome
    Purple Rottweiler masala

    Well, to my way of thinking, and I realise that it's not everybody's, but as I say, if we were to take a straw poll with two choices, to my way of thinking, coriander would win, though I know some might disagree, but one thing I've learned is that those who disagree do so because they're disagreeable, and to my way of thinking, that's how it is.

    Yes. Presentation is very important.

    Should a poll on the question accompany the next ToT thread?

    Seals, mainly because I live half a mile away from someone who is famous for her efforts to halt the declining numbers of otters. But I hear you cry, "That's surely a good woman!", and I thought so too until one day I went into her house and found she had a number of otters living in a cage in the living room! And not really anywhere near their natural environment. So she went down in my estimation rather rapidly after that. Anyway, seals have sexy teats.

    Lettuce:

    Cos (Romaine if you must)
    Little Gem
    Sweet Gem
    Iceberg (what's that?)
    Frisee
    That curly type
    Soft English lettuce
    Another curly type
    Purple Gem (aka Amethyst lettuce)

    So I guess the savior complex went to her head?

    manatees or walruses?

    Yes, and to everyone else's nose. I did feel sorry for them, but they didn't smell too good.

    It's a big animal, the walrus. Very bristly too. And aggressive. Whereas manatees, or mermaids as they're usually called, have long blonde hair and no legs, only a fishtail. I call it a draw.


    I'm pretty sure this is recycling:

    Would you rather be a dryad or a naiad? And which would you rather marry?

    Will someone donate a Orientalplane/falling_dance to 'Merican English dictionary to Sparks?

    How about the OFD 'Merican English Dictionary instead?

    I think I'm more of a manatee. Marriage to a naiad would never work.

    royal baby names:

    Castle Cosmaine
    Queen Regina
    Noelliamina Victoria
    Royal Bebe
    Violet Orchid Fuchsia Lavender

    Sparky, you know I love you and also I am tired because it's midnight here, but I cannot work out for the life of me what your question means.

    In any case I can't go to bed without knowing whether you live in a lagoon or up in the trees. It's important, you know. For the future.

    Raises eyebrows to indicate a) I have had no botox injected and b) that I don't know whether f_d is joking. However, I assume she is.

    Baby Bebe! The Royal Baby Bebe!

    Some NZ names are very nice. Princess Raewyn. Princess Noelene. Princess Raylene. Lovely names, very, very pretty.

    OK, the first person to come up with the name, rather an odd one I remember thinking, of the NZ skater who appeared at Worlds a couple of times in the early 1990s wins a tenner.
