Orange board:
Cheezies, cheese balls, crunchy, kumquats, mandarins/satsumas, oranges, orange candy/sours, orange fizz, orange crush moat etc.
We'd make great friends. The licorice cigars are definitely the pièce de résistance.

At the foot, I have these shoe cupboards from Ikea so the kids can put their stuff in there like a dresser. The pics are a bit outdated now (I took them when we first moved in), but now I have fans mounted in the beds, LED strip lights (of course), and they've decorated them inside to look really cool. I even have some old hill-used signs from Lake Louise that look totally awesome in there.

Curtains are black-outs from Ikea that I just punched grommets in on the length and mounted them sideways on a track and trolley system inside the frame. Good storage under the bed. The frame is made from an old pallet rack I painted white, then made the walls and doors out of knotty pine I white washed then varathaned with like 10 coats so it should be indestructible. I mounted overlapping barn doors (made the doors from raw wood, too) on the front so the pods can be enclosed. The kids actually sleep with the wood doors and the black out curtains closed, which looks kind of funny at night as though we put them away in a cupboard.

I have charging stations in there and many electrical outlets for their stuff. They really are private spaces the kids can retreat to or even bring their friends inside to hang out. The "ladder" is made from folding metal foot holds used in the trucking industry to climb onto trailers. They're cool because they're insanely strong (lag bolted onto a 2x6 piece of maple) and they fold away out of sight when not in use.

It's way beyond a bunk bed for space, look and functionality. It can probably hold like 10,000 lbs or something crazy, so is beyond overkill in this application, but that's part of what makes it kind of cool.

I'm not a wood worker...just a normal dude that couldn't find what he wanted off the shelf so had to get creative. Learned some lessons and would do things differently on the next one, but overall happy. The finished product looks better with some trim pieces here and there to really finish it off, but I don't have pictures of it complete.




Totally awesome. this guy made something similar. You can use it like this too I would imagine:

I really dislike drinks in a can. If I can get it in a bottle, especially a glass bottle, that is my go-to choice. I saw Fournette on the NFL broadcast drinking a Gatorade from a can. That is so disgusting.

- Sliced fruit (plum, granny smith apple etc.)
- Sliced pickles (Polski ogorki, dill)
- Olives (Garlic stuffed, Kalmata etc.)
- Assorted dried fruits (Apricot, apple etc.)
- Crackers
- Fresh basil
- 2-3 cheeses at like $10 per block at Costco.
- 2-3 types of smoked meats or prosciutto which I think you can do for less than $20 at Costco in those combo packages.

Cheeses and meats are around $10 per add. The other items are around $5 per add (crackers, basil, pickles/olives, fruits etc.). My friends and I used to do this and basically split the stuff between two boards for a separate guys/girls night (Guys often doing a whiskey night, the girls a wine and movie night).


Not NW, but to give you an idea...

https://peasantcheese.com/catering/mixed-boards/

A premade $50 board is 3 cheeses and 2 meats for 4-6 people. You get half that for $35.
Dangit....dagnabbit... I got da munchies just reading this. Time for a snack... hmmm
great ideas from everyone (even Sliver?).
I found the Peasant site too and it seemed best value. That said just dropping $50 at Costco will probably get me twice as much volume wise...

I watched Dave Chapelle’s latest special, called the Closer.

I didn’t think it was especially funny. I cringed at a lot of it. It felt lazy. Money is the enemy of comedy. When you’re poor and have observations about the ####ed up nature of life, it resonates.

When the only reason you don’t have a Zonda in the garage is because you don’t care for the Zonda, you’re inherently less relatable.

But I’ll tell you this - I didn’t see anything from this special, or any of his previous Netflix specials, that should occasion any trans person to kill themselves.

Conversely, the woke mob on Twitter did cyber-bully Dave’s Trans opener to the suicide.

So, you tell me what’s more transphobic.

Me talking to my 3 year old son after my wife wondered why he went from being obsessed with robot shows/cartoons with male leads a few weeks ago to some doll house show with a female lead.

Me: Hey buddy. Why are you watching this dollhouse show all of a sudden? Why do you think it's interesting?
Son: I'm a boy daddy!
Me: Umm, OK? I still don't quite understand...
Son: Daddy! I'm a boy! Boys like looking at girls!

I think carmenshoes is Google looking for the CP brain trust to provide results. Their posts are always one line questions.

It's 72 for Canada last time I checked so that's probably a good guess still.
