I got a bit confused cause it jumped a bit around in the beginning but I'm placing things together now. Also I had to google a few words because I didn't realise that it was how certain words were spelled XD  So I was pronouncing them wrong XD

But I like what I've read so far!

Like the character name... Carrot XD So original.

His name in dwarfish means 

 

Spoiler

headbanger. 

 

But I think that comes out in another book. Dwarfs are pretty literal lol. Not a major detail, but fun.

Terry Pratchett was a literature wizard. His books are so fun to read, especially those from the golden era.

I should actually look what books my aunt gave me. I wonder if there was something of him in the collection. Will take a pic and send it to you over the weekend

I went on Amazon to look those books up and somehow ended up putting 'The Art of War' and 'The Prince' in the basket instead XD

Because I am very easily influenced XD

 

You wouldn't have needed candy to get me into a van as a child. Just a "hey kid come check out my van" would have done lol. 

 

I think I might eventually. With it being a series I want to make sure I have the funds and time for all of them.

Yeah I had it as well... Could never get past the second hospital XD

 

I will... I've been trying to take screenshots of Stardew but for some reason it's not showing so I can't save it!

I always took too long to open my hospital. I tried to build all rooms and hire staff before letting patients in and I think that cost me too much.

 

Awww 😧

@Marcus Pheonix : I might turn all of us into secret agents after we have finished our individual careers and see who gets the top promotion first.

 

Or I may go the super villain route....

OBTW @DragonSpirit009, once you have finished being a Painter, how'd you feel about becoming a Secret Agent? Same question for @Marcus Pheonix and @Lagie. Want to be Secret Agents?

Sounds interesting! What do we need to do?

 

Good day, CPA! B)

 

*sets out assorted soups, some hot, some cold*

 

It's so nice to have another day with nowhere I have to go.

Hi Lagie! How are you feeling these days?

Hot soup sounds wonderful! *grabs a bowl and fills it up!*

Today is my first day in a week with nowhere to go, and it does feel good! I have been putting in long volunteer hours for the past week at the homeless shelter that our church was hosting for the week. Our community has a wonderful program where many churches in the area take turns hosting a homeless shelter that rotates among them for all the colder months of the year. We were the "shelter of the week" for the past 7 days, ending at 7am today. It takes many many volunteer hours to house and feed them and it pretty much takes over our whole building, too! It is a really great experience, though.

i should read more Pratchett.  i read the first 4 or so of Discworld, maybe i'll give them another go.

 

i've had off saturday, sunday, and today.... and i'll gladly take more days off! my next one is next sunday.

 

in other news, i juuuust finished the new Poldark series (it ran from 2015 to 2019 on BBC).... but it's based on a book series of 12 books (and book 12 is kind of a spoiler for what goes beyond the series! 😮 )  since my library has all 12 books, i'm now wondering if i want to go ahead and request book 1 NOW, or wait until i've finished the book i started (that i own) that i've set aside for another library book?  (if that doesn't make sense - i've started reading a book i own. then i got an email that my book at the library was ready for pickup. so i set my own book aside to get the library book. library books get read before my own books, as library books have a deadline; my own do not)

Well, thanks, though often sleepy as I am not sleeping all that well lately. I can finally roll over onto my left side again which is good!

That's a lot of time! I'm sure they're happy to have you.

 

Hmm. Book decisions. We have no decent libraries here, and I got spoiled working at one in B.C. Staff got to keep books longer than patrons. XD Is there likely to be a high demand for that one, @trystan?

 

*sets puzzle pieces aside to go outside and read some more* (Drowning Ruth by... erm, somebody. :P )

i don't think so.... but i don't know for certain, the series ended just last year - November, according to imdb

 

i'll finish the library book, then my own book - it's a #1 of 2, so once i'm getting close to the end of book #2, i'll request the first Poldark book. :D 

 

edit: i just did about 2/3 of my grocery shopping for tomorrow on the computer! yaay!

so i didn't double-post
