I'm serious...

Because I'll come over there!  LOL  This pic makes me titter like a fool.  And the cup in the pic is veeeerrrrry familiar looking...Old Country Roses...I *might* have some of those.  ;P

Why is it that guys named Frank are either badass mafia enforcers/hitmen or just some poor bastard?  ;D

Victory is mine!!!

Finally! After weeks of playing that infuriating game, I have BEATEN the damned thing! *Without* using hints! So victory is mine and mine alone! Checkmate in thirty-four moves! I only lost a pawn and a knight(and only because I wasn't paying attention to what I was doing--distracted by Salem). Damn Black Queen took my White Knight(I *know* there was a fanfic about that ;P). Anyway, it was less of a slaughter than what I usually do. I took 7 pawns, 1 bishop, 2 knights, 1 rook, and 1 queen! Huzzah!

And another minor victory: I have been wanting some nice riding boots, but lets face it, I already have a few pairs of boots. ;P So I had been thinking that it would be cool to have some knee-high spatterdashes(aka gaiters) made out of something sturdy like canvas(in black, of course) or perhaps leather. So! I had searched the 'toobs, but couldn't find any for retail sale. On a whim the other night, I tried searching on some equestrian supplies websites looking for some nice riding boots once again, but what did I discover? What I had initially been wanting! Only they are called "half chaps" instead of spatterdashes(I guess peeps don't like that antiquated name). And I can get some for fairly cheap. I saw some nice leather ones for around $30.
