Lost One of Those Things

Post your whimsy-laden thoughts here.

Actually it seems to be Joyce who came up with the 'Lawn'. Stately plump Buck Mulligan, probably.

Macpaddy - 16 Aug 2021 17:46:23 (#18 of 2017)

Ah. Damn I did 'misremember.'

Hope you're better soon, Holly

I accidentally kicked FosterMog up the bum, and she is now exacting revenge by sleeping on my shorts and throwing cat fluff around at an alarming rate. I may have to re-think my evening plans.

WHOLESOME EVENING NEWS: I'm working on that jigsaw puzzle again.

Cordelia - 16 Aug 2021 19:50:20 (#22 of 2017)

I had to clean and tidy when I got home as I have a viewing tomorrow. Annoying. He better bloody buy it!

What is your wholesome jigsaw picture?

Sabacious - 16 Aug 2021 19:54:56 (#24 of 2017)

I've been doing some super-resolution confocal laser-scanning microscopy followed by a spot of deconvolution to fill the afternoon. Fun times.

Cordelia - 16 Aug 2021 19:56:48 (#25 of 2017)

The latter thing I understand. Confocal though?

Dubris - 16 Aug 2021 19:00:14 (#26 of 2017)

This is the jigsaw puzzle:

As previously mentioned, it's pretty but difficult.

breakfast - 16 Aug 2021 20:01:14 (#27 of 2017)

Yes, that does look tricky.

Charisse - 16 Aug 2021 20:02:32 (#28 of 2017)

I have been busily working away on my dissertation. I have actual words now. I need quite a lot more before I send the draft over, but it doesn't have to be a full draft so I think things are going to be ok.

Sabacious - 16 Aug 2021 20:02:33 (#29 of 2017)

A lot of blue dragon scale pieces I'll wager.

Confocal is just a technique for eliminating unfocussed light when imaging in three dimensions to get higher resolution.

MysteryDate - 16 Aug 2021 20:07:04 (#30 of 2017)

Excellent puzzle, Dubs.

And no point to them if they're not tricky.

Cordelia - 16 Aug 2021 20:22:07 (#31 of 2017)

Ah. Thanks Sab.

slicey - 16 Aug 2021 19:39:37 (#32 of 2017)

There's always that one with lots of Dalmatian puppies if you fancy a challenge.

HouseOfLametta - 16 Aug 2021 20:46:26 (#33 of 2017)

I've bought another fucking bike. What's wrong with me?

Dubris - 16 Aug 2021 19:47:51 (#34 of 2017)

Too many legs?

HouseOfLametta - 16 Aug 2021 20:48:50 (#35 of 2017)

Possibly. It wouldn't be so bad if occasionally sold one.

Cordelia - 16 Aug 2021 20:49:55 (#36 of 2017)

Don’t worry. I’ve bought another sewing machine.
