It ended in the country of the admin who turned us green and she has to sleep.

Actually it looks like it will be over in 1 and a half hours in Ireland. Anyway, it looks like I don't have to make my posts green anymore! :mrgreen:

I will never understand why a play-by-play announcer says, "That's one he'd like to have back" when a hockey goaltender lets one in. He wants the ALL back, doesn't he?

I'll never understand why packets of peanuts have a label that reads "Warning: May contain traces of Nuts"

Surely that's the point?!

Well, technically, peanuts are NOT nuts, they're legumes (similar to beans and peas). Many people with allergies to nuts, do not have an allergy to peanuts (my nephew is one), and vice versa. So the warning of traces of "real" nuts is good for people with nut allergies.

precisely - and it is not necessarily foreseeable that peanuts should contain traces of hazelnuts or walnuts.

i am myself badly allergic to nuts, but react to peanuts only one time in five or so. i suppose thats when nuts and peanuts are processed in the same machines plus a factor of bad luck.

I will never understand why my cat likes to sleep in the bathroom sink.

How sweet!

I guess the sink is a relatively small one? Cats love boxes, so you may want to try getting her a box in the right - meaning: slightly small - size. Put in an old sweater of yours and she should be happy and abandon the sink.
Cheers,
Ava.

Small sink, massive cat. Looks like a muffin.

He's an oddball.

Snicker...put a box on the floor, he's in it. Put a paper bag on the floor, he's in it.

Guess he's a throwback cave dweller.

Mine does this, I think because the porcelain (or steel, if she's choosing the kitchen one instead) is cool to the touch most days.

I'll never understand why it is that as soon as I claim a section or three of a book, I catch a cold and and sound like a nasally yak for the next four weeks!
