Things are getting pretty hectic out there in the ol' ILX, I think we all need to calm down and talk about nice things.

Let's talk about nice things here.

Like, I dunno, dogs? Dogs are pretty good.

What about lovely media outlets that write stories about local heroic sporting people who have never been in a sexual or financial scandal?

two years pass...

Thinking of getting noise cancelling wireless headphones or maybe a new laptop or maybe a power washer

I only need the first on that list but I only want the last the middle tbh is a compromise candidate

i don’t know what a power washer is but it sounds delightful

Spent all Christmas break '16 powerwashing the driveway.

pplains, Sunday, 7 January 2018 03:47 (eleven months ago) Permalink

AA It's hard to describe beyond naming it tbh

PP otm

NB I have nothing to powerwash

remember the lmao (darraghmac), Sunday, 7 January 2018 11:27 (eleven months ago) Permalink

that kind of defeatist attitude tells me u are not yet ready to own a powerwasher tbh

it sounded like a very fast washing machine until pp threw outdoor use into the mix

I think you should enjoy what yr imagination suggests for another while yet

One of those things you didn't think you needed until you saw what it could do.

I prefer the colour on the right tho

In the five years we were between dogs, the dog crate sat in the garage and become a home to a few spiders.

It's one of those cage-type crates, so when I laid it down in the driveway and powerwashed all the webs and eggs off of it, it created this cool chessboard design on the concrete.

Just one of the many ways a power washer (and a dog) can still offer surprises.

Eight legs to swim with, imo.

SPOILER ALERT RE: POWER WASHERS!

A power washer is an electric or gasoline-powered pump attached to a wand with a spray tip, connected to a garden hose for its water supply, capable of spewing out water at high pressure. It can dislodge stuff like dirt or moss from hard surfaces like pavement or the siding of a house by blasting it off. Much like leaf blowers, they can be mesmerizing to use, unless the water is blowing back on you from a wall or eaves and soaking you, then they are unpleasant.

Feel free to google it and then post the definition for everyone as a public service.

washing concrete is a crime imo. Water is not for watering your driveway dammit :P

rove mcmanus island (Autumn Almanac), Tuesday, 9 January 2018 11:49 (eleven months ago) Permalink

NB did not get bose just wanna see how it works so got the Amazon choice thirty quid pair

If it seems a worthwhile venture then bose or similar

remember the lmao (darraghmac), Tuesday, 9 January 2018 12:07 (eleven months ago) Permalink

bose are... er, more expensive than thirty quid (I purchased em with a end of year prize voucher from work btw)

great quality but

Shitpost in Opposition (King Boy Pato), Tuesday, 9 January 2018 12:27 (eleven months ago) Permalink

I wouldn't mind that if I know I'll use em over a few years

Also she can have the thirty quid pair in the above scenario

the good thing about wireless is you don’t catch the cord on a door handle and tear them off yer cocking head every 45 seconds

rove mcmanus island (Autumn Almanac), Tuesday, 9 January 2018 12:30 (eleven months ago) Permalink

That is literally the thing about them yep

remember the lmao (darraghmac), Tuesday, 9 January 2018 12:32 (eleven months ago) Permalink

yep

rove mcmanus island (Autumn Almanac), Tuesday, 9 January 2018 12:33 (eleven months ago) Permalink

Surely.

I don't need a laptop the old laptop is a decade old but I don't use it and I threw in new memory and an ssd a year or two back which keeps it running for the purposes

But would I use it for other, newer, life-changing purposes if I had a shit hot new one

The question is a troubling one.

remember the lmao (darraghmac), Tuesday, 9 January 2018 12:38 (eleven months ago) Permalink

other, newer, life-changing purposes


oh u mean vr porn

rove mcmanus island (Autumn Almanac), Tuesday, 9 January 2018 22:06 (eleven months ago) Permalink

i mean the capacity for a laptop to change a life extends to dating sites and amazon sales

Ahem

Laptop money *that I do not have* excuse me

I went to Singapore for work recently and my colleagues said that you have to get tea from this chain of tea shops, it is really good tea

They had one of the tea shops and the airport and got the tea and was not disappointed by the tea
