I've seen toothbrushes sold in pairs.  And pork chops.

Maybe you're not shopping at the right stores. Wink

Maybe you could add some vertical storage space - like desktop shelves, etc. ?

or even something on the side.  I have a great little 5 drawer plastic tower with tons of space both inside & on top for me to lay random papers & books!  (office max = your friend)

Yeah, I'll have to think about how to add some extra space somehow. Smiley

My old coffee table was getting sort of old and beat up, so I decided to get a new one. However, I didn't bother to get measurements of my current table so that I would know what size table to order (I was browsing online). I eventually settled on a table from Walmart, and had them ship it to the store closest to me. I picked it up today... and I'm regretting not thinking this out more. If I did the measurements/calculation correctly, my new table is 49% smaller than my old one. I usually have multiple remote controls, multiple stacks of books, and multiple bunches of papers strewn across the table. Not now. I'm really missing that extra space.

LOL, I love how you say it's "49% smaller" -- not just "about half the size."  Wink

I was in college in Florida at the age of 20 when I realised how much of a nerd I was. The dorm monitor saw me walking back to my room and invited me to a get together. Shy and awkward, I gave an uber-geeky response, which sounded like some line out of a dissertation. It was at that moment that I realised who I truly was. People sometimes say "Oh, you wouldn't talk like that in real life". No. I really am that geeky in real life.  Tongue

Round 2 tonight...  Competing against speakers from as many as four clubs outside of my own.

How'd it go?
I won. Grin (My nerdy brand of humor got a lot of laughs. laugh) Next round: the division contest on October 21. If I win that, I go on to the District 7 finals.
Round 3 tonight. Got a lot of laughs throughout my final practice run last night, so I know I'm ready. Grin

Keep us posted!  And, is there a way we could get a YOUTUBE preview or something?  I for one would love to see your set!  
The run is done, even though my speech was the best I'd ever done and got just as many laughs as the contest winner's. Now it's time for me to focus on my next big project: a 12-month contract to test printer software for a big local printer manufacturer. The new job starts next Wednesday.
We had our district humorous speech finals today--I didn't compete. The trophy winners: 3rd Place went to a fellow who spoke of a day at work as an accountant in the straight-voiced "Just the facts" manner of a Sgt. Joe Friday; 2nd Place to an arachnophobe and her encounters with big, hairy spiders while hiking in Arizona; and the 1st place trophy to an older gent who was too macho to hire a professional to paint his house. laugh

I don't see why not. This was only my second time competing in the annual humorous speech tournament, and I made it farther this year than last. I'm quite pleased that I beat the person who beat me at the area level (one level above club and below division) last year, and I gave the performance of my life at the division contest this year. The judges, however, thought someone else's speech better and selected him the winner. I can't exactly complain about something over which I ultimately have no control. At least I was given the opportunity to learn from some much more experienced contest veterans, and I learned a lot!

Well anyway... good luck next year (?)
Thank you. Smiley I got a lot of great ideas from this year's district contest, so I look forward to what I can do next year. Then again, I could be appointed Area Governor, in which case I would not be permitted to compete in a contest.

I'll agree with theistgal: we got a his & hers toothbrush pack (i.e. TWO SEPARATE ones, not one to share Wink ) at a bridal shower (amongst other things in that gift pack).  Now pork chops... they'd have to be pretty heavy to be sold in a pair, methinks (since most are packaged by weight were I'm at - going for certain size packages).

Well, I admit I don't buy a whole lot of pork chops.  I just assumed they were sold in pairs as my mom always cooked several at a time.

(Which may explain my weight problems ... lol! Cheesy )

Now drumsticks I *know* are sold in pairs ...

This has not been a good couple of weeks for me. First I was told that my car needed new tires to pass inspection. Then I found out that my battery is 5 years old and will probably need to be replaced soon. Then I was told that I need a new windshield before it'll pass inspection. Now I think I'll need to replace the alternator. Can't we just invent transporters a la Star Trek already!?  Undecided

Quote
14. ABSTRACT
This study was tasked with the purpose of collecting information describing the teleportation of material objects, providing a description of
teleportation as it occurs in physics, its theoretical and experimental status, and a projection of potential applications. The study also consisted
of a search for teleportation phenomena occurring naturally or under laboratory conditions that can be assembled into a model describing the
conditions required to accomplish the transfer of objects. This included a review and documentation of quantum teleportation, its theoretical
basis, technological development, and its potential applications. The characteristics of teleportation were defined and physical theories were
evaluated in terms of their ability to completely describe the phenomena. Contemporary physics, as well as theories that presently challenge the
current physics paradigm were investigated. The author identified and proposed two unique physics models for teleportation that are based on
the manipulation of either the general relativistic spacetime metric or the spacetime vacuum electromagnetic (zero-point fluctuations)
parameters. Naturally occurring anomalous teleportation phenomena that were previously studied by the United States and foreign
governments were also documented in the study and are reviewed in the report. The author proposes an additional model for teleportation that
is based on a combination of the experimental results from the previous government studies and advanced physics concepts. Numerous
recommendations outlining proposals for further theoretical and experimental studies are given in the report. The report also includes an
extensive teleportation bibliography.

On another note... I'm watching Hell's Kitchen... sort of... but why is it that these chefs can't do things like cook food long enough that they aren't still raw when they send them to Ramsay? Honestly? How long do you have to be a chef before you can cook pasta or a steak?

I love, and hate, that show.  Love for entertainment value; hate that it is reminding me that I may eat at a place that doesn't cook its food well enough, store it well enough, or train its chefs in proper handling well enough.  Yuck.

I got mine from the Amazon.com seller Office Quarters, who are selling them for $1.34 (see here, and scroll down a bit). Shipping is $5.73, so you can get them for about $7 total from that seller. Of you might be able to get a pair at Office Depot or a similar store for the same price (for example your local store might have this one or a similarly priced version).

Methinks Papist's avatar is super cool and should be awarded because of it. Maybe he could be declared as the "Pontifex Maximus of the OC.net" by Holy Synod of Moderators or something.

Well, considering the facts that he seems not so enthusiastic with RC-EO ecumenism and that Tertullian is using that title in ironic way, yes. Tongue

I'm having car problems and I didn't want to risk my car breaking down tonight, but I had a bit of a problem... I'm almost out of soda. That's like a near death experience for me or something! So I did what any sane person would do: I ordered some food to be delivered. The minimum order the place required is only $6, so I thought about just ordering three 2 liters of soda, which would have covered the requirement. I just couldn't do it, though... how do you call an Italian restaurant and ask them to deliver three bottles of pop to you? Cheesy I was wondering "what the hell's wrong with me?" just thinking about it.  Cool They probably would have thought I was just too lazy to go to the store or something. Anyway, so they got some extra money out of me for some grub. Though I don't mind, they make good food.

Why do they sell deoderant. body spray, and shampoo in pairs, but not toothbruses or packs of pork chops?

I had to re-answer this, because the other day some of us took our parish priest out to breakfast, and he made a big point of asking the waiter to verify that the menu item "pork chops and eggs" was indeed "CHOPS" (plural) and not "CHOP" (singular) - because he really wanted those TWO chops!  laugh

I see a tag below that says, "I like soup". On that note, I had some vegetarian chili for lunch today. I'm not liking it so much now. Tongue

There's nothing like walking through an intersection during a rain storm only to find the drainage grate on the other end of the crosswalk backed up and overflowing. Tongue

I was looking through some of my things, and I found a nice CD of Romanian chant that I thought I'd lost. Hooray!   angel Nice for this time of year.
