Sure did.

Next poster is thinking about going rogue.
Yes, in response to some new, absurd "initiatives" at work.

Next poster is considering going rouge next Halloween.

If you mean dressing as Rogue (blue body paint and yellow contacts), then absolutely not. Nobody needs that much blue in their lives.

If you mean rouge (red makeup on my cheeks), then absolutely not. I have no intention of dressing up and if I did, it would not involve makeup.

NP is a little bit scarred by thinking of me dressed as Rogue.

Unless that means CHP Humbolt will cutover without incident, then OK.

I'm actually not from Portland. We get a quite a few whackadoos around here also, but not quite to Portland's level. Around here, it would be more like every third Tuesday.

I've wondered many strange things (when deaf/mutes think, do they picture little hands doing sign language in their minds?), but I don't recall ever wondering about sewage stench (although now I may).

NP believes that the purpose of lettuce in a salad is to hold the other ingredients up high enough to get your fork under them.

Not in the least. Having seen the seedy underside of CPS (badly in need of some Ziebart-ing), I am nonplussed by the question! :dancingpie:

NP has witnessed one of more kind acts within the last few weeks that's making the oncoming Holiday Season something they're anticipating to a greater degree than normal.

True.

NP, after Thanksgiving, will reflect on the extended weekend of 11/17 - 11/20/17 and the fun I am about to have and then be sad that he wasn't me.

I thought about being sad that I'm not DL, but I kind of like my Thorazine levels where they are.

Yeah. Guilty.

Yeah, that's totally true. And I feel terrible about it. Truly.

NP still hasn't watched a single Christmas movie.

Not true. I've already watched the old Miracle on 34th Street--it's sort of a post-Thanksgiving/transition to Christmas tradition for us.

NP has an "I Believe" button (from the new Miracle on 34th Street) stuffed in a drawer somewhere.

No.

NP is snickering but doesn't wish to reveal that deep inner truth.

I'm not snickering and the deep inner truths will remain there until they're ripped out of my soul.

NP is familiar with the Little Einsteins.

Somewhat true--I've never actually watched them, but I am aware of them.

NP puts sweaters on their dogs.

I don’t have any dogs... but the mere idea of it makes me shudder regardless...

NP made it to work early this morning.

Not quite. 45 minutes late. There were these two dogs snuggled up to me and it was very cozy.

NP likes to drive in cold weather with the windows down and the heater blasting.
