    Watch Yourself In A Mirror & See Yourself Transformed

    Must go back to a time before mirrors were common because such stories were also told about looking into still water (which would reflect like a mirror, of course).

    Spontaneous Teatowel Combustion

    We use tea towels on our tiled counters to spare both the grout (I hate scrubbing grout) and the costs (monetary and environmental) of using paper towels. But if they're fond of combusting... :shock:

    Strange Oddities

    Cats can be very fast, so you might not see one going in and out of the cat door. The cleaner, though seems odd. What kind of switch: press switch, flip switch, foot switch, or ?

    The Day The Earth Stood Still - The remake

    Fairies around the house?

    Interestings stories, especially about the dog! I've got a problem, here, too: I had my Swiss Army knife (which also contains my flashdrive) in hand and was going downstairs. In the landing, I removed the kitchen towels from the dryer. Upon reaching the living room, I realized that my Swiss...

    Psychic Leanings

    And we want to see it! On our way home last night, my husband and I wondered about what sort of information flits through our universe to allow something like that to happen. staticgirl's information pertains to her own needs in the future; but rynner's (and my) information pertains to...

    Psychic Leanings

    Yes, only with me it's street names. Sometimes I pass a street I haven't noticed before and the name will stay with me for days. Until someone says, "Do you know where such-and-such is?"

    Message in a dream, was it for you?

    And if you turned left to get to the New Book shelf, the message was, obviously, for you. What's your middle name, then, Rynner? Anyway, liveinabin1, interesting dream. I once had a dream that a large earthquake occurred near where I live. I immediately turned to the nearest person and...

    The Tree Answered

    Yes. Hmm. You do have a coat? It was a willow sapling. I've not read Tolkien, however. (Yes, I can hear the collective gasp at that. Had to look up "Old Man Willow" through Google.)
