Wish I could borrow it, though I have no floor space right now.

that wouldn't work very well.... it's glued together, and has a plexiglass cover on it on the floor in one of our rooms XD

Yes, that would be difficult! XD

Can you actually walk on it?

That is cool. A puzzle floor.

I have now done two 500 piece ones today. I need a bigger puzzle!

Are you going to do that mega puzzle Lagie?  

 

How big is that puzzle trystan?

 

I overdid today and my back is killing me.

I wish, Classy! No. I found it in a catalogue. It's 17 feet by 6 feet; I would need the entire of my living/diningroom space to lay it out in. And the cost at the bookstore here would be prohibitive, if they even had it. A simple 500 piece one here is often $30 - $40 or more.

 

*points out the painkillers*

Yes, thanks for the painkillers.

 

That's a big puzzle.  30 to 40 dollars for a 500 piece puzzle....  Whoa....  That's expensive.  I hope you can get them in the shop.  Is the cost of living really high there?

Pretty much everything is imported, so yes, life here is expensive. A 12% VAT on everything doesn't help, and it gets paid several times over - by the wholesaler when they buy the item, by the retailer who buys it from the wholesaler, and a third time by the customer who buys it from the retailer. Not to mention the Customs duties when you import things, as high as 45% on things like toys and puzzles. So, something simple like a puzzle more than doubles in cost by the time I buy it from my favourite bookstore, meaning that I don't. I get them secondhand at my thrift shop!

yep, it's a pretty good size! but it was like 3 puzzles that were 4000ish pieces each.  but even better, they used the same jigsaw press in each third four times - so i was the same exact pattern 4 times in each third.  it made it so much easier once hubby discovered that!

Evening folks.

 

Placements been real busy. I think i'm getting more used to it but that might just be because the days haven't been super busy, just a good level where it's not too crowded.

Hi there MP!

Well glad to see you are busy with work!

How is everything?

 

@Fortune86 It's mostly my neck muscle and jaw muscles. But if this goes on I might get an ear infection

Hey MP!

 

@DragonSpirit009 : IIRC the tubes for the nose, throat and ear are connected. Sometimes a problem with one can affect the others. When I got jaw pain a few years back I got some ear drops that cleared the matter up.

The muscle in extra red is the one with the problem

When I grew up the muscle kinda stopped growing and I had to get an operation for it.

It's basically this muscle giving the problem and infecting everything around it.

Wait is your muscle infected?

Or did you mean to say affected?

Do you have access to antiinflammatories? I don't really know the story.
