Who wants to play TJBM?

Asked by Mimishu1995 (21168points) 1 month ago

This Fluther tradition is the next in a series of infinite reincarnations of this thread. I don’t even know which number this thread is anymore, but whatever. I like games and that’s all what matters :)

The first person makes a statement about TJBM (The Jelly Below Me). Anyone who cares can reply with a “yes” or “no” answer, following up with their own TJBM statement.

Example:

First poster:
TJBM thinks cheese are superior to sausage.
Next reply:
_Yes, all hail cheese! TJ BM will destroy anyone who doesn’t eat cheese.

And so on.

Well not exactly, but I am looking into visiting Florida.
TJBM thinks that technology is overwhelming.

Strauss's avatar

As a former techie who was studying data systems as far back as 1968, I would agree.

Yes I do. Especially for our seniors, youth and animals.

TJBM is feeling Autumn creeping in.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Yup, today’s high temp will be in the 70s, the last month the highs have been in 80s and 90s. Overnight lows have been 71 degrees or higher for the last week.

TJBM has a weather station at their house.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Well, on my phone.

TJBM is bored.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Not really, have two grand kids up my butt. TJBM will tell me this is the new thread. ?

RayaHope's avatar

This is the new thread and you better get those kids out of there!
TJBM gets seasick in a dinghy.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

I love boats / ships actually. If I had a sailboat with a cabin, I’d probably live on it. TJBM is unusually busy today.

RayaHope's avatar

Oh gosh, I have been, I have a problem but that’s another story.
TJBM has beautiful fingernails.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Nah. Finger nails annoy me.

TJBM is sorry about Anne Heche

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Not a big fan, but yes. Hate to see anyone hurt. TJBM is going to chill this evening.

Dutchess_III's avatar

As in every evening.

TJBM is gonna make a fried burrito now

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Actually making a quick burger run. Have to go to work pretty quick. TJBM has heard that Anne Heche has passed away. : (

RayaHope's avatar

I don’t even know who that is.
TJBM will tell me :)

Brian1946's avatar

Yes, I will: Anne Heche.

TJBM has as much compassion for the young woman, whose home and belongings were destroyed by Heche’s reckless driving.

canidmajor's avatar

Yes, I have thought about her often, and the struggle she will have getting that all dealt with.

TJBM is having a quiet Friday evening.

Brian1946's avatar

I am.

TJBM lifts with their legs, instead of their back.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

I try not to do any lifting at all. TJBM is exhausted tonight.

smudges's avatar

Actually trying to get sleepy, but I won’t go to bed until 7 Brides for 7 Brothers is over.

TJBM is going to do Saturday housecleaning tomorrow.

Mimishu1995's avatar

It’s Saturday, and I already cleaned my house.
TJBM hates cleaning but loves a clean house.

RayaHope's avatar

You got that right!
TJBM puts honey on pancakes.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Nope only pancake syrup. TJBM likes biscuits and gravy.

smudges's avatar

I do! I do!

TJBM loves walks in the forest.

RayaHope's avatar

Oh yes very much as long as I don’t forget the bug spray!
TJBM has the cutest collection of shoes.

SnipSnip's avatar

I have a huge collection of them.

TJBM has a big decision to make…

smudges's avatar

Yesss…shall it be grilled cheese with tomato and tomato soup? or pasta alfredo?

TJBM watches too much TV

canidmajor's avatar

Oh, Lordy, yes I do. Way too much. But after a couple of pandemic years, I am getting sick of it, so better days ahead!!!

TJBM is starting to look forward to bitching about the cold and eating winter food.

RayaHope's avatar

Don’t get me started. I love the beach NOT the frozen tundra.
TJBM LOVES hot chocolate by the fireplace.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Sounds good, sans cold weather. TJBM prefers a cold beer by the grill.

SnipSnip's avatar

Never.

TJBM prefers someone else do the actually grilling.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Nothing like sunny skies, an ice chest full of cold beer, and meat on the grill. TJBM enjoys cook outs.

Mimishu1995's avatar

I wish I could participate for once in my life. I figure that’s a great way to enjoy cooking. All my life I have been made to think of cooking as a chore. And I have never had a chance to participate in a cook out.

TJBM will invite me to their cook out party :D

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Sure would of you could get here. On a heartbeat. TJBM would also invite TJAM to a function or event.

RayaHope's avatar

I would invite ALL the jellies to my wedding if that ever happens :)
TJBM loves to dress formally.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Hell to the no. Haven’t worn a tux since my daughter got married. A Polo shirt and slacks are my formal attire. TJBM hates to get dressed up.

Strauss's avatar

“Polo shirt and slacks”...are you Jake from State Farm?~~
I don’t mind if the occasion warrants it. For me getting dressed up means my shirt has a collar. And maybe something besides jeans. Possibly loafers (with socks) instead of sandals or sneaks. I haven’t worn a tie in decades!

TJBM owns a tie they’ve never worn.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I own ties but they aren’t for wearing .

TJBM wishes they had some furniture in their house.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

We do. Actually I wish my wife would be content with the furniture we have. Oh well. TJBM is in the market for an appliance. Washer, dryer, etc.

Dutchess_III's avatar

No. No appliances.

TJBM are having a couple kids over tomorrow and isn’t sure where to put them.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Seems like we have a couple over every night. Friends of the grands. We just let them hang out / sleep in the individual kids room. Sandi (13) and her friends always drive us nuts with the tic toc crap. Lol. TJBM doesn’t get the interest in freaking tic tok.

RayaHope's avatar

TikTok can be so fun if you go to the right places.
TJBM can’t handle their liquor.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Actually I can. Even my own wife tells me I have been mean or cruel to her when I’m drinking too much. And we’ve been together 42 years. It’s just that I act silly, think everything is funny, and back in the day I was useless for a certain activity. I’ll let that stand. TJBM does not imbibe.

Dutchess_III's avatar

If you were mean or cruel (abusive) to your wife when you were drinking that means you couldn’t handle your liquor @Nomore_Tantrums.

TJBM is seeing so many physical changes online, and even here on Fluther, it’s making them wonder what’s going on.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

That was a typo. She said I was not mean or cruel. Just goofy and useless but I wont into latter. TJBM hates stupid typos.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

And no, I haven’t really noticed any online changes. Other than the usual updates which are a joke really. TJBM can possibly elaborate on @Dutchess_III comment.

RayaHope's avatar

I have had trouble posting questions here. A mod told me their servers are acting up. Please fix them :)
TJBM wears sunglasses even at night.

snowberry's avatar

Nope.

TJBM doesn’t like peas.

SnipSnip's avatar

Bingo!

TJBM buys cheap sunglasses so as to not be upset when he or she sits on them.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I rarely buy sunglasses.

TJBM tries not to buy too much stuff.

KNOWITALL's avatar

100% correct! Minimalism has been a passion of mine since my teen years. And I love my Ralph Lauren tortoiseshell glasses!

TJBM really can’t stand football or football season.

canidmajor's avatar

Very true. I don’t like the game or the amount of attention and devotion paid to it. And I get really annoyed at the vast numbers of people who can’t deal with someone who simply doesn’t like the game.

TJBM is already seeing Hallowe’en stuff in the stores.

RayaHope's avatar

Not yet where I shop but Christmas stuff will probably be there first. lol
TJBM Still dresses up for Halloween

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

No, but I’d like to. We just don’t enough trick or treaters in our area make it worth the bother, and I wouldn’t want to scare little kids anyway. TJBM is not a fan of Halloween.

smudges's avatar

No, I’m not.

TJBM loves Thanksgiving.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

I do. I like to eat and have family gey togethers. TJBM is looking forward to the Holiday season.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Get togethers I meant. Stupid typos.

RayaHope's avatar

A holiday season full of yoj…I mean joy lol (stupid typos)
TJBM [like me] is dyslexic and can’t tell the difference sometimes.

SnipSnip's avatar

No, I’m not. I have my own set of defects and quirks. ;)

TJBM wonders why people are talking about Thanksgiving and Christmas in August.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

I do. Not close to ready for the holidays. TJBM will change the subject. @RayaHope I’m a dyslexic agnostic. At times I stay up all night wondering if there really is a doG.

Strauss's avatar

I’d like to change the subject to the object.

TJBM can appreciate grammatical humor.

RayaHope's avatar

As usual, I had to look up what something meant. (oh man I’m hopeless) and yes I do like that kind of humor…when I get it. lol
TJBM was awkward like me when my age.

Strauss's avatar

I definitely felt awkward as a young person. I’m not sure if I outgrew it or learned to live with it!

But I still feel a lot younger than a lot of my peers!

TJBM agrees that “age” is a state of mind.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

I do. Don’t feel that old myself but I’m fact, I’m old as Methuselah. TJBM knows what I mean.

Mimishu1995's avatar

Maybe I’m still too young to know :)

TJBM is old enough.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I am.

TJBM wants to drive a back loader.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Like to give it a shot, only equipment I have ever driven / worked with is Ditch Witch. TJBM is having a quiet evening.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yes. After a crazy day with a few grandkids.

TJBM thinks 70s music was the best.

Brian1946's avatar

That’s true due to a chronological majority: my favorite music decade is 1967–1977.

TJBM has had an encounter with an apex predator in the wild.

Mimishu1995's avatar

The scariest apex predator I encountered was the dog next door. It was truly “in the wild” because it was just roaming around without any human around, and it came after me to defend its territory and it fully intended to kill me. I asked a question about it here. I’m convinced I almost died that day.

TJBM hates to admit that they are afraid of a certain animal.

Brian1946's avatar

No, I do not.
I love tigers, but if I saw one running free, I’d get or stay indoors, and call animal control.

TJBM would send me and the rest of CA about 2” of their rain, if they could.

Mimishu1995's avatar

You should have said that earlier! I just had some big rain the other day. Now it’s all the sun and the heat.

TJBM hates and loves the heat at the same time.

RayaHope's avatar

Loves the heat YES! I only hate the heat when it’s not.
TJBM was once bitten by a dog.

canidmajor's avatar

Ha! I have raised and trained dogs my entire life, so yes, well, not once, but many times. Most recently breaking up a small dog fight. Much ouch, visit to urgent care, one-handed for a couple of weeks.

TJBM lives in a serious drought area.

SnipSnip's avatar

No. I live on the Gulf and we get plenty of clean rain. I recognize the blessing that is.

TJBM always uses a saucer with his or her cup of tea/coffee.

RayaHope's avatar

My coffee cup never hits the saucer. [glug] [glug]
TJBM would die if they didn’t get their coffee or tea.

Dutchess_III's avatar

No. I can live without coffee. Never thought about tea.

TJBM doesn’t understand the coffee addiction.

Brian1946's avatar

I don’t drink it, but I can understand why some people crave it.
I read somewhere that it’s not the most popular US beverage, but I forget which one is. :/

TJBM drinks more water than any other beverage.

canidmajor's avatar

Yes. I can’t stand soda, I only like juice on occasion, but I tend to put back a couple of liters of water a day.

TJBM is looking forward to the Fall. (Autumn, not the end of civilization as we know it.)

RayaHope's avatar

I hate to see the end of summer, but there is something about the coziness of a warm fireplace and a cup of hot chocolate:)
TJBM Would make paper airplanes in class and throw them when the teacher wasn’t looking.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

I did a lot of things in class when the teacher wasn’t looking. I just made the huge mistake of looking at a Playboy mag I’d swiped from my dad, when the girl who sat next to me was looking and she ratted me out. With friends like Janice who needs enemies? TJBM was always good in school.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yes I was.

TJBM Is going to eat a food they probably not going to like.

RayaHope's avatar

There are a lot of foods I don’t like, avocados are like buttered snot to me.yuck!
TJBM is a stargazer.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Would like to be, but our telescope my youngest grand son and I have, really doesn’t have enough pizzazz. Need a better one.TJBM enjoys sitting outdoors in the evening.

Brian1946's avatar

@RayaHope Thanks for your hyper description of one of my favorite foods. ;p( They’re quite healthful, so I’m going to edit your comment to some things I love but have no health benefits: chocolate chip chocolate cake & Boston cream pie are like buttered snot to me.yuck! ;)

RayaHope's avatar

@Brian1946 LOL!! I know they are healthy for me that is one reason I’m mad at them for tasting so yucky! But come on…chocolate chips AND cake…grrrrrrr Surely you must be joking.
TJBM LOVES chocolate!

Brian1946's avatar

NO! I lov hate chocolate because it tastes like French fried fecal matter! Yuck! ;p

TJBM will tell us what they think would happen if they unwrapped a Baby Ruth candy bar, and then sent it sailing across the water in a swimming pool. ;)

Dutchess_III's avatar

LOL! Some kid would eat it!

TJBM is watching a good movie.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Watching some boring baking show with my wife. A zillion channels to choose from and it’s always either a cooking baking / show or Hallmark. Gag a damn maggot. TJBM seldom watches TV.

RayaHope's avatar

True I watch videos and stuff on my phone or laptop.
TJBM is excited about something.

SnipSnip's avatar

I am excited that dinner is only two hours away…..haven’t eaten today.

TJBM keeps a calculator near by.

Brian1946's avatar

True- one is provided by my PC.

TJBM has used an onscreen keyboard.

SnipSnip's avatar

Yes, a piano keyboard, not a qwerty keyboard.

RayaHope's avatar

TJAM has a piano keyboard, this must be why he forgot to leave a comment :)
TJBM has a good memory.

Brian1946's avatar

I sure as hell…wait, what did you say? ;)

TJBM can describe a mnemonic device that they’ve used.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Tons of them. Mostly too remember names.

TJBM talks too much.

snowberry's avatar

Rarely.

TJBM has trouble reading small type.

RayaHope's avatar

It’s true, I wear glasses when on my phone or laptop.
TJBM has perfect vision.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Nope. Have to wear glasses for night time driving. TJBM is in “back to school” mode.

RayaHope's avatar

Oh, you know it! Went shopping yesterday and got a lot of stuff. New clothes are the most fun part. OH, I CAN’T WAIT!
TJBM is excited about something really fun!

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Yeah, my grand sons first Jr. High foot ball game! Hope he does as well in football as he does in baseball. TJBM is very busy today.

Brian1946's avatar

Nope. I’m just starting the 20th year of my staycation.

TJBM has used the scientific view on the calculator provided by Windows.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I would but I have no need to.

TJBM is glad it’s Friday.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Meh…it’s my Monday, starting another three days on my part time job. TJBM has some fun planned tonight.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Not really

TJBM is waiting for rain.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Yes, 5 miles South of us right now ! Headed this way.

TJBM is starting dinner, ours will be sausage stuffed zucchini !

RayaHope's avatar

I don’t know what my moms making but I probably won’t be wild about it.
TJBM has something hanging from their car’s rearview mirror.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Not now. I had my son’s 2005 graduation tassel there for a while

TJBM has plants on their porch

canidmajor's avatar

Oh, yeah, every year. This year it’s just the herbs, most years I have beans and peas in pots as well.

TJBM has a rather chatty dog.

SnipSnip's avatar

@RayaHope Laughing…. Sorry. Not my first time to skip out without a TJBM statement. ;)

RayaHope's avatar

TJAM Makes a good point! :)
TJBM makes a bad point.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

I did? I’m crushed by such harsh words. Yawn. TJBM has noticed an influx of mosquitos.

SnipSnip's avatar

Nope. They actually sprayed last night in my area. But never see mosquitoes nor am bothered by them.

TJBM thinks vacuuming is the worst job in the house.

RayaHope's avatar

Oh geez, you hit the nail on the head, kinda. Add dusting and I’m gonna explode.
TJBM just got a haircut.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

No, in shaggy hippie mode right now. Probably get around to it though. TJBM is worn out tonight.

Brian1946's avatar

Nope- just woke up from a fuckin’ A bitchin’ fuckin’ nap! ;p

TJBM has no facial hair.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Usually not. Try to shave every day. TJBM has a beard.

RayaHope's avatar

Oh no, if I had a beard it would not be where you’d think and it is trimmed very tight.
TJBM has a six-pack.

Brian1946's avatar

Nope- I’m down to my last bottle. ;)

TJBM is posting from a bathtub. ;-o

Dutchess_III's avatar

No. I’d never take that chance with my phone.

TJBM is baffled by how careless people can be with their $600+ cell phones.

RayaHope's avatar

Guilty of being careless, I can be stupid about my phone even though I know how important it is.
TJBM is a little apprehensive about the future.

canidmajor's avatar

Ha! A lot apprehensive is more like it.

TJBM will spend this Saturday outside, if possible.

SnipSnip's avatar

No. It looks like I have a lot to do before Monday. I could have finished by yesterday, but, oh no…..had to go get into some mischief. Now, I’m alone and will get it done.

TJBM has permed his or her hair and it was a disaster!

Mimishu1995's avatar

Yes I have. But it was never a disaster because I always had people do it for me :)

TJBM asks people to do things for them because they can.

RayaHope's avatar

More like the other way around. I think I’m the go-to girl for all the yucky household stuff and errand-runner.
TJBM can make a good sandwich.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yes. I prefer to grill them.

TJBM has a dog who is their best friend.

Brian1946's avatar

Nope- my cat got stuck with that job. ;p

TJBM has a child seat in their car, or on their motor scooter. ;)

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Always. Got a three yr old boy we have with us a lot. TJBM doesn’t have to deal with extended family. Fun, but also tiresome at times.

Mimishu1995's avatar

I wish I didn’t. I don’t get along with a lot of them. It’s actually a chore having to meet them. Fun? Only about 1% of the time.

TJBM has a safe space.

Dutchess_III's avatar

My whole life is a safe space

TJBM Can ride a horse.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Yes. In Texas it’s not an uncommon activity. TJBM has some some horseback riding as well.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Yes last time 30 years ago, first time 65 plus years ago.

TJBM has a family favorite recipe, mine is lasagna, my mom taught me.

Mimishu1995's avatar

TJBM still forgets.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Mine is my Momma’s baked beans.

TJBM Odered something from Amazon that they can’t really use.

SnipSnip's avatar

Haven’t done that.

TJBM had changed from buying 16 oz bottles of water to the gallon jugs.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

No. Costco and Sam’s Club bulk purchases are more than we need and even HEB and Walmart can be high priced on those. We just buy small waters by the case. TJBM buys in bulk.

Dutchess_III's avatar

A little bit. Amazon kind of pushes you that way.

TJBM wants banana bread. Fresh, hot banana bread dripping with butter.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Dammit I love that stuff and more so with butter. Now my mouth is watering, I look like a drooling ancient idiot. TJBM likes banana bread as well.

Brian1946's avatar

I do, especially with chocolate chips.

TJBM knows what their outdoor temperature is.

According to Google maps, mine is 81º @ 1:56 PM.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

91F at 5:47 PM. TJBM has had enough of summer.

RayaHope's avatar

I’ve had enough of the last day, stomping out fires and trying to do stuff I don’t even know how to do.
TJBM just returned something to Amazon that didn’t work :(

Dutchess_III's avatar

No.

TJBM is starting a furniture painting project tomorrow.

SnipSnip's avatar

No.

TJBM has lost weight without trying at least once in life.

Dutchess_III's avatar

All the time.

TJBM hears retarded sounding tornado sirens every Monday at noon.

Brian1946's avatar

Yes, and I live 1,200 miles away! I wish your city would reduce the volume on those things. ;)

TJBM has never seen the Statue of Limitations. ;p

Dutchess_III's avatar

SMH!

TJBM is having 3 cheese enchiladas for dinner.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Chicken and five cheeses as a matter of fact.

TJBM likes making Mexican casseroles like enchiladas

Dutchess_III's avatar

When it comes to Mexican I keep it simple.

TJBM has been evicted in the past.

Brian1946's avatar

Nope- I’ve never even had to pay rent.
I went straight from living with my parents mostly for free, to making mortgage payments on my house.

TJBM has swam in an alpine lake.

canidmajor's avatar

Yup, in a beautiful lake with glorious clear perfect water that was, as I was to find out, run off from snow melt high in the Olympics. I dove in and was rather…startled…by the temperature, or lack thereof. I would have yelled, but I wasn’t able to.

TJBM has kids about to go back to school.

RayaHope's avatar

Ugh, I am that kid going back to school.
TJBM wishes they were still in school.

smudges's avatar

That’s a hell to the no!!
can someone tell me what SMH is? I’ve seen it a number of times

TJBM has gone swimming in both the Atlantic & Pacific oceans.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Several times !

TJBM likes Japanese Sushi !

Dutchess_III's avatar

Scared to try it.

TJBM’s dog just got sprayed by a skunk.

SnipSnip's avatar

Nope.

TJBM likes to listen to Hannity on FoxNews.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Hell to the no. Rather sit in a scrapyard and watch cars rust. TJBM would rather watch paint dry than watch Fox.

Brian1946's avatar

True. I’d love it if Spectrum deleted all the Faux News channels from my list and those of whoever else doesn’t want them, and the revenue loss meant unemployment for Trumpsucker Carlson.

TJBM can identify Andromeda in the night sky.
I can’t, but I think Smudges can.

Mimishu1995's avatar

I wish I could even see the stars at night :( There are just too much light in my area to see a clear night sky. The only thing I can see is the moon.

TJBM is @smudges.

Brian1946's avatar

True.

TJBM is also @smudges. ;p

RayaHope's avatar

You mean there are really stars in the sky?
TJBM is not @smudges

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Nope, sorry to disappoint. TJBM likes to gaze at the night sky too. But they need to upgrade the telescope.

SnipSnip's avatar

I do like to look at the night sky, but do not use a telescope. I just sit or lay in the backyard or on the balcony.

TJBM has seen something unusual fall from the sky.

canidmajor's avatar

Sort of. I got beaned by a large clam dropped by a seagull. Blood, pain, and an appreciation of the absurdity of the circumstance.

TJBM likes to read mysteries.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I do. Especially as a kid.

TJBM is painting some furniture.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

No but I do need to paint a wall in the boys room. They were supposed to be watching the four year old the other day while we ran to the store for milk. Instead they were tossing a foot ball out back and the little guy marked all over the wall with his crayons. TJBM has experienced am similar disaster.

RayaHope's avatar

Sorta, I was watching a pot on the stove waiting for it to boil. I got tired of waiting so I walk away only for a minute and When I came back it was boiling all over the stove. My Mom said I burned the water…[rolls eyes]
TJBM love to go to art galleries.

Dutchess_III's avatar

When all is said and done I’ll have an art gallery in my house!

TJBM loves their house decor.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

My wife is into all of that decor stuff, always rearranging. Doesn’t matter to me. As long as she leaves my recliner in a good spot to view TV. TJBM plans to kick back and watch TV tonight.

RayaHope's avatar

Maybe after school work. uggh!
TJBM loves to stream TV shows.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I don’t know that I’m streaming. I have YouTube and Prime and Roku so I just pick from there.

TJBM watches lots of documentaries.

SnipSnip's avatar

I do. Today I watched that one about Manti T’eo and his girlfriend who wasn’t.

TJBM is looking forward to a future movie about a good book he or she recently read.

smudges's avatar

Sorry, away for a few days. Had shoulder surgery and it was fanfreakintastic! All they had to do was clean out about 20 chunks of arthritis pieces!

No I can’t identify Andromeda

TJAM forgot to write what TJB did. LOL
TJBM had Chinese food today.

Mimishu1995's avatar

No, I don’t forget anything :D

And no, I had Chinese food yesterday, not today.

And I didn’t know you had a surgery. How are you feeling now?

TJBM is @smudges :D

smudges's avatar

LOL yup, it’s me this time!

surgery went fine and I had very little pain. Thanks!

TJBM can suck their toes – or could when they were a kid anyway.

RayaHope's avatar

I can but that is kinda gross.
TJBM is a workout fanatic.

Strauss's avatar

No, I always loved to get my exercise the old-fashioned way…physical labor.

TJBM has performed a lot of physical labor.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I have in the past. Now I just do what I can.

TJBM used to play ball when it was 105⁰ out.

SnipSnip's avatar

I sure did. I’m from the South and we play ball hot/cold/rain/shine. We go to ballgames in the same conditions.

TJBM was surprised to see gasoline prices drop a bit. I paid $3.34 this morning.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Gas has dropped for the last 72 days I think.

TJBM likes making crock-pot chili, I start the afternoon before it gets served

Dutchess_III's avatar

Sounds like a plan!

TJBM needs to get the fixens for crock pot chili and a recipe

Tropical_Willie's avatar

*Got the fixin’ *

#1 hot Italian sausage
#1 ground sirloin
3 cans beans
1 28 oz crushed red tomatoes
1 medium chopped onion & 2 Tbs chopped garlic brown in pan after browning meat
1 Tbs Chili powder

TJBM likes old fashion banana splits

Dutchess_III's avatar

No. I just get a one scoop Sunday.

TJBM tries not to eat too much.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

I can’t eat too much, don’t have the appetite I used to have. Pigged out at Golden Corral the other day and paid the price with acid reflux. TJBM enjoys eating out at diners and restaurants.

RayaHope's avatar

That would be like going to Disneyland for me.
TJBM has been to Disneyland.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Twice, once as a toddler that I only remember from old family pics, and once as a young teen. TJBM is not in to amusement parks.

RayaHope's avatar

Not really since most of the rides scare me since I’m afraid of heights. But some stuff is fun :)
TJBM gets nauseous on amusement rides.

smudges's avatar

Not really nauseous, just scared on the high ones. Love the teacups and tilt-o-whirl!
TJBM copied @Tropical_Willie‘s recipe for chili, like I did!

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Nope got my own piping hot chili recipe. I can only deal with one acid reflux / heartburn issue at a time. TJBM loves chili.

RayaHope's avatar

Does chili on a hotdog count?
TJBM puts ketchup AND chili on hotdogs.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Sure it does. I use it on hotdogs myself. Can’t beat it with a stick. But it’s even better by itself, out of a bowl. TJBM likes chili on camping trips.

SnipSnip's avatar

I like homemade chili for any meal.

TJBM is very particular about which brand of frankfurters they eat.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

I like Nathan’s hot dogs!

TJBM has had Michigan Hots in Vermont or eastern New York!

RayaHope's avatar

Nope never been that far north. I hear it’s pretty in the autumn:)
TJBM loves the autumn leaves.

smudges's avatar

It’s gorgeous! We used to have Sugar on Snow parties at church. Men would go out and get very clean, pristine snow anbd bring it back to the church basement where women were heating up freshly tapped maple syrup. We would line up with a tin plate of snow, they would drizzle the syrup on it and it would harden like taffy. We’d pull if off the snow and eat it. Chewy and sweeeet! It was served with of all things dill pickles!

TJBM loves salt water taffy.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Not a fan of taffy or any candy, really.

TJBM is counting down the days until the weather changes.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Hell yes but in CenTex that doesn’t mean much. We have two seasons, a long Hot as Hell and a usually brief Cold as Arctic. TJBM enjoys four real seasons.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I do!

TJBM lives above the Arctic circle.

SnipSnip's avatar

Laughing….....................no, South Florida.

TJBM prefers wearing plaids, stripes, and patterns over boring solids.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

I throw on anything I can find. My wife does my clothes matching for me. As in, wear these don’t wear that! TJBM doesn’t care about clothes either.

RayaHope's avatar

Au contraire. How can you NOT care about what you are wearing?
TJBM LOVES to coordinate their outfit with their shoes and accessories.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

I’m a slob. So says Mamma Bear. But long as she’s around I’ll be presentable. TJBM says, what accessories? A comb and a wrist watch oh, and car keys. What more do do you need?

Brian1946's avatar

I have a home comb, but that’s just to prep my stache before I trim it.
My wristwatch died, and I haven’t replaced it.
What more I need is my wallet.

TJBM has experienced Transporter Psychosis! ;-o

Dutchess_III's avatar

Not I.

TJBM had a busy, crazy morning.

RayaHope's avatar

Oh gosh I’ve had a busy, crazy month!
TJBM would love to see snow this winter.

SnipSnip's avatar

Yes, but it never snows in South Florida. However, I will spend a couple months this winter where there will be snow.

TJBM needs to get the oil changed in their vehicle…..like yesterday!

smudges's avatar

Gosh that’s true!!
TJBM has been to lots of rock concerts.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

I have been to a few. The wildest was Ozzie Osborne way back in the day. TJBM attends country music concerts.

Brian1946's avatar

My wife took me to a CMA concert in 1994.
I think that’s only one I’ve been to.
She tried to get me to go to a Travis Twitt fiasco later that year, but thankfully I declined.

TJBM can name a member of the 27 Club.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I don’t know. I don’t know what that is.

TJBM knows they don’t know a lot of things.

canidmajor's avatar

Wait…wait…you want me to admit I don’t know stuff??? Well, OK. I don’t know what the 27 Club is either.

TJBM is a Trekkie.

RayaHope's avatar

I think I’m the queen of “not knowing stuff” but I do know Star Trek some since my brother likes it so much. I like Lower Decks, that is so funny. lol
TJBM Watches cartoons.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Believe the 27 Club refers to rockers and rappers who have all coincidentally died at age 27. TJBM will correct me if I’m wrong.

Brian1946's avatar

I will not correct you sir, because YOU ARE CORRECT!
However, I don’t know of any rappers who belong, but then I don’t know who all of the members are.

The members of whom I know are Jimi, Janice, Kurt, Jim Morrison, and Amy Winehouse.

TJBM recognizes any of the members I listed above.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Recognize them all. I had the impression Tupac had made the list as well but I may be way off on that. Very strange stuff there. TJBM can tell us what age Tupac was when he passed.

Brian1946's avatar

According to Wiki, he was 25 when he passed.

TJBM would rather be in the 127, than the 27 Club.

SnipSnip's avatar

Clubs are not my thing. At all.

TJBM has game night with friends or family….board games, card games, whatever.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Usually, at least one night out of the week. With the grands, homework load permitting. TJBM enjoys playing slap jack.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yes. Gotta teach the grandkids slap jack. And Speed.

TJBM knows what Speed is.

Strauss's avatar

I know Speed by several different definitions or incarnations…some positive, some negative, but all faster than me..

TJBM knows of a speedster.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Only “Speedster” I was ever aware of was my dad’s bad ass Mustang Mach One he used to let me drive to school. Until I messed up the front axel racing it one night. He got it fixed but I drove a lame ass VW beetle the rest of my HS career. TJBM knows what TJAB may be referring to.

RayaHope's avatar

I have no idea what you guys are talking about.
TJBM will not confuse me :)

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

I’m lost in the ozone myself. No worries. TJBM will enlighten us.

smudges's avatar

Ohhhmmmm…enlightenment is yours, my child. ohhhmmmmm

TJBM is a seer. no, not a seersucker! hmmm…wonder if that’s where that word came from

RayaHope's avatar

Seersucker can look good on guys! But I think I may need some more Yoga.
TJBM wishes they could dance.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Hell, I’m a dancing fool! And if you believe that, I have a very nice property in San Antonio I can sell you cheap. I call it an “Alamo”. TJBM is a good dancer and never steps on a lady’s feet.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

I student taught in Junior High School and had the bill cut in half for classes. Also appeared on Los Angeles TV on dance show. Seven different ballroom dances and 100 “breaks” with steps.

TJBM has a pilots license for airplanes !

Dutchess_III's avatar

I do not. But I have a teaching license!

TJBM has become very unmotivated.

RayaHope's avatar

Oh I’m VERY motivated to understand things. Just don’t work out so well many times.
TJBM can be a trickster!

Strauss's avatar

I can, but I’d never admit to it!

TJBM is feeling bit peckish.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

No just tired. TJBM ready to seize the day.

RayaHope's avatar

Oh yes got big plans after school :)
TJBM would take my math class for me today.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Hell to the no. I hate math. History we might work a deal. TJBM is a history buff.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I love history.

TJBM is ready to stumble through another day.

SnipSnip's avatar

Well, it is 4:30 pm and I’ve done all the stumbling I’m going to do. I’m about to go put something on for dinner.

TJBM canceled an appointment today, and now thinks maybe should not have done so.

RayaHope's avatar

Nope made all my appointments today except one that I’m still working on.
TJBM thinks that social media is a waste of time.

SnipSnip's avatar

Yes, for the most part.

TJBM is craving something he or she hasn’t had in a long time.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Lobster please !

TJBM likes (LOVES) seafood.

Dutchess_III's avatar

OMG LOBSTER!

I love sea food!

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Always steak for me. Just pat it on the head, cut off the horns, toss on the grill. I’ll take it well burned or medium raw. TJBM loves their steak.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Pittsburgh-style – - – cool in the middle !

TJBM misses the steakhouse they went to in 2019 ! !

SnipSnip's avatar

No, it’s still there and we go there occasionally. There is often a long wait and neither of us have good waiting skills. We have to many good restaurants around here…..or just a BLT at home beats a long wait.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

TJAM forgot something ! ! !

TJBM has tomorrow night dinner going.

RayaHope's avatar

Tomorrow night dinner going today? What a crazy concept. It will get all cold and yucky.
TJBM likes a hot dinner. Unless it’s ice cream night. lol

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Hot dinner for tomorrow in a Crock-Pot is chili.

TJBM has been to Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream in Waterbury, Vermont

Brian1946's avatar

True. I went there with my dad in October, 1993.

TJBM would go swimming in Lake Champlain if they could.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Did that many times @Brian1946 my ex and her family lived 30 minutes from it.

TJBM can’t wait for the weekend, we may go for shrimp and lobster salad.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Steak and ‘Taters for us, grilled outdoors. Weather permitting. TJBM has big plans for Labor Day weekend.

smudges's avatar

Nope, no plans at all.
TJBM is having weenies, buns, and corn on the cob for Labor Day.

@Tropical_Willie I lived in Shelburne! Cute little village

Strauss's avatar

That sounds like a good plan!

TJBM will be seeing family this weekend.

RayaHope's avatar

Oh yes, the way this week is going, I can’t wait till the weekend!
TJBM will refrain from implying sex stuff.

Brian1946's avatar

You betcha, babe! Only a douche-bag dildo would keep doing that! ;)

TJBM believes that NOW we should all refrain from implying sex stuff. ;p

Dutchess_III's avatar

Life is about to get very boring.

TJBM had an interesting morning.

Strauss's avatar

Still having one.

TJBM is feeling very generous today.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Yes just sent a check out to a charity.

TJBM is waiting for a large package.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Just small packages.

SnipSnip's avatar

I was and it came this morning.

TJBM recently laughed until he or she cried. I hope so, anyway.

RayaHope's avatar

Oh yes, some of you guys really crack me up!! :D
TJBM laughed so hard they may have wet themselves.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Not that hard, but I watched an old Rodney Dangerfield film last night, and I laughed so hard I almost choked on a Frito chip. Guy cracks me up. TJBM is ready for the three day weekend.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yes I’m ready. Even tho I don’t work.

TJBM wants some baked beans and deviled eggs.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

SnipSnip's avatar

Oh heavens no. I do not under any circumstances eat the deviled egg.

TJBM has regrets about a past retirement or job/career change.
