Sounding like excise: give a second thought. There's the Spanish once, sure to be mispronounced wants - which is also kind of cool.

Hmmm...maybe. or spell XI as Exy. Then there is Greek, Hendeka, but sounds more like a Greek girl, so we are back to that. Guess we could go with Hendekas.

Good find. Why can't a name ending in a be a masculine one: Attila.

It can end in an a, but it wouldn't be Greek. Actually Jesus is a corruption of several languages including Greek. His original name in Aramaic was something like Isha.

So, we are getting a new mattress. We have had a Serta foam one for a couple years. It is way better than the spring ones we used to have, but our backs and necks need a little more support. So we are getting a Thera-pedic Contour Elite. We tried a Thera-pedic Flex. We named it the mattress from hell. It is a hybrid with foam on top and spring underneath. Bad idea.

Anyone have any experiences with mattresses? Good or bad.

Good point. I think it is sort of pronounced Zee. That's a good one.

P.S. Sheena, could you take a look at "had a really crazy dream last night help!" You might see something that I missed. Thank you.

Mine is old and has a rogue spring that hurts me if I sleep a certain way. Getting a new one this summer, finally. Pretty sure mine is a Serta too.
I hate pillow top mattresses I want one I can turn over to prolong life.

Stephen Hawking

I don't say that because I think or feel him any harm. Just that he died today, so that it must be that he should die. Many would consider him the greatest mind; certainly one of the most intelligent theoretical physicists who ever lived. But now he leaves a void which we (as in one of some of the seven billion humans) hopefully can fill to continue his work.

What would you like to achieve before you die?

I cut a guy off when turning left off of a freeway ramp. I had to cross two lanes of oncoming traffic from my left and wait for the folks turning left from the other side of the road to an on ramp right next to me. So, I saw three lanes of traffic over there, but I miscalculated. One of those three lanes was their left turning lane. To my horror, when I turned left, there was no third lane for me. So I ended up cutting a guy off who was barreling along with the traffic flow.

So... dark??... Makes me think of my black cat hiding against a white wall behind a sheer white curtain.

What type of movie genre is your favourite?

Re: Get to know posters game...

PostPosted: Tue Mar 20, 2018 9:49 am
by operatormike
I like all sorts of movie genres. If I had to pick a favorite, I suppose it would be sci-fi. Back when 2001 Space Odyssey came out, I was totally obsessed with it. I saw it about 10 times. I had read the book first, so what was somewhat confusing imagery to some, was clear to me. "Oh My God...it's full of stars!"

At this point, I think my all time favorite movie is Armageddon. Regarding genres, it has everything. It has elements of sci-fi, romance, action, disaster. And really great special effects. As well as really great music. What more could you want?

Welcome to Eight Magpies. I don't think we have met. EMP can also mean electromagnetic pulse, which is how the aliens decimated the humans in the book series Fifth Wave, just saying!
Closest I have been to the Pacific Northwest is northern California. I think that might qualifies. Also, that was the only place I have seen magpies.

Some of you older members should answer that one because you know all the main characters here but.........

Well, Nostalgic and Dorn and Rock Pillow recently rejoined, so it brought back memories and feelings. There was a time when most of everyone, at least the regulars, knew each other and chatted regularly. Not everyone liked each other, but that is normal for any community. We discussed all sorts of issues. There were often team approaches for interpreting dreams. It seems dreamlike now, but it was real.

So lift your glass and raise a toast to Green Havoc, the instigator, Endelbendel, the guru, GargoyleGoil, the strong woman, P Chips, an emoter, Puppyjill, J Buddhaman, Tsetse22, SpiritWolf16, SheepDove, Kermit, Yoda, Josh, Mitch, Catherine, Victoria, Nicola, Ray and so many more.
I miss them because at some level, we were friends.

The dream dictionary, I guess. I don't really care about posting dreams as much as reading dreams of others.

Dreamy...I did a read of your dream for you.

Canny, I do post dreams and do get helpful advice. Sometimes I solicit individual members for their advice by PMing of posting on a thread like Dreamyskies did. I also do interpret dreams for others.

Amalthea, In my dreams, my wife/and or anima shows up more often than any other "outside" character. I think that she is one and the same person, also she is an aspect of my self.

Clementine, we will see if puppy shows up. If not, let's wish her well.

Nostalgic, Hi!

So, anyone have any interesting dream lately?

:wave:

I had a dream I was in an amusement park but the details were blurry but it had a feeling to the dream and I can’t remember what that feeling was, I need to start a dream journal again lol
Hard to interpret though with so little detail and the fact I was talking about taking the kids to one the day before I dreamt it. I have a feeling though if I remembered it, it would have been interesting to know what it meant.

On of my favorite songs is Rock n Roll Dreams Come Through. I have some emotional history with this tune. John Steinman originally wrote and performed it. It became a number one hit:
https://video.search.yahoo.com/search/video;_ylt=AwrJ7FXGcPRaer8AQFpXNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTEyNWNiaW4yBGNvbG8DYmYxBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDQjI5NDRfMQRzZWMDc2M-?p=rock+n+roll+dreams+come+through&fr=yfp-t-s&turl=http%3A%2F%2Fts3.mm.bing.net%2Fth%3Fid%3DOVP.xylXPA402WLw_MxMXm187QHgFo%26pid%3D15.1%26w%3D136%26h%3D77%26c%3D7&rurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DTR53uAzkF6A&tit=Jim+Steinman+-+Rock+%26%2339%3Bn+Roll+Dreams+come+through+1981&w=144&h=78&pos=3&vid=3ed95e438b5fffbf1690fede302e5c26&sigr=11bsn5eqo&sigt=11omn7pag&sigi=12jarsm68
Years later, Meatloaf did a cover of it. Once again, it became a number one hit:
https://youtu.be/j7-i43W4mqw
At one point, when I was looking for a job, this was my theme song. It inspired me to keep on keeping on.
After I found a somewhat dream job, the words were even more inspirational.

Same question.
