    Let's see if I remember how to spoiler.


    [spoiler=Guessing]Ivy (IV)[/spoiler]


    Edit: I clearly do not remember.

    Neither applies.

    It is definitely food-based, with a slight hint in the title as well for specificity.

  2. Hi Laurh, & welcome! Interesting riddle. Here are some musings - 

    Makes me think of 


    Happenings on a cellular level - disease or mutation perhaps, though neither would be a great fit (from my limited knowledge).

    Glucose would fit a number of your clues reasonably well, including chaise (chair conformation of glucose).

    Another guess, in a completely different direction


    Would be taxes. (Always certain.)

    Initial thoughts:

      Hide contents

    While my thoughts initially jumped to something like a sailor or a witch, I feel like it might actually be food/diet related due to "not watched by children/fools" and "salty/crusty" and "dinnertime." "sound a bit crazy" could be a reference to bananas, but the rest of the rhyme doesn't fit, and "while moving" doesn't really apply here...

    I'm going to guess a crab

    > salty attitude & crusty skin --> crustacean

    > could sound a bit crazy / get off my lawn --> "crabby"?


    Hiya peace! Good to "see" you still around. :) Hope all is well!

    You're onto the right general idea after your initial thoughts, but this guess is boiled. (& hopefully picked & dipped in butter.)

  4. I'll bump this in case there is interest. (& sincere apologies, I didn't realize I had an open riddle remaining.) Not one of my better offerings, so also a bit of a re-write:


    • I'm neither ugly nor watched by children

    • But fall afoul of my salty attitude and enjoy my crusty skin

    • Though I could sound a bit crazy, I'm not a fraud

    • Especially while moving

    • Get off my lawn, it's dinnertime



    Hope to check in on the Den now and again. :)

  5. I'd just like to thank...

    rookie for BD, LiD for smileys, Y-san for enigmas, PG for donuts, plasmid for letting us know who he's not, slick for rollin', & fabby for ... well, being fabulous, obviously.

  6. You can get into politics if you act like you're smart. You can't stay in politics, however, if you're actually smart. You'll be found out & replaced.

  7. An interesting thought, & yet I would also posit that most people are not the exact same person they were even 1 year ago. (No, I have no evidence or citations.) Some may consider themselves a different person from yesterday, though that may not happen every day. However, the same person as began reading your question? Yes, I would consider myself the same, as my following thoughts are things I have considered before.

    I think it has less to do with cell regeneration/replacement as with experience. There is some evidence of "cell memory" (especially, examples with some people who've had organ transplants & exhibit different personality traits post-op), & this may hold true, but most people don't have that situation to deal with. Life, living, & personal growth happen with time & experience, & those can change a person slowly or rapidly depending on the person & their particular understanding they gain through their experiences. Likely also, the way in which they can interpret those experiences.

    I think there are both genetic/physical brain structure & experiential components that make up a person, especially their personality & mental state. So if a personality were imprinted upon a "wiped" or "blank" brain with a different genetic or physical signature, there would be differences, though they may not be immediate or immediately noticeable.

    The more interesting question to me is, If my brain could be removed & fully re-engaged without damage or loss into some sort of host, would "I" still remain? Would there be a host in which I could continue to function as myself, continue to learn, experience, & grow? Or would there be a lack of "soul" or some essential part of the body/brain/personality mash-up that would render the brain simply an AI processor to an automaton?

  8. I'll play games occasionally, but I am *really* not good at strategy. (Thinking ahead? No.) The DH, however, has a regular Friday game night while I go have margaritas. (Everyone's happy!)

    Here are a couple I noticed were missing that the boys all enjoy -


    Galaxy Trucker

    Arkham Horror or Mansions of Madness ... they like one & the other eh, unfortunately I don't remember which is which


    Some quick games -



    San Juan (quick & easy Puerto Rico)

    Balloon Cup (2 player)
