Ellis is becoming less passive in regards to the things she want.  A few months ago I noted that she’s become more picky with her food and attire.  And, now, she’s proactive in enumerating where she wants to go, what she wants to eat and what she wants to do.  Although, perhaps more than half the time, we don’t do what she wants or give her what she wants.  But, she is still OK with it.  I am not sure whether she doesn’t know she didn’t get what she asked for or whether she really believed the alternatives we offer her is just as good.

But, whatever the case, she is exercising her ability and want to ascertain her choices, to choose and to control her behavior appropriate to the situation at hand.  Case in point, she wanted to go swimming, but it’s rainy and cold.  So, we told her we will take her to the mall instead.  Instantly, she said OK but she wants a carousel ride and a balloon.  I told her yes on the carousel ride but no on the balloon.  She says OK.  She expressed and negotiated what she wanted and looked at only what she gained even when I rejected her request for a balloon (because she gets bored of them really quickly).

Her cognitive improvement is slightly less important than her more basic requirement for rest and nutrition.  And, she’s doing much better on these two fronts as well.  Last month, I’d guestimate that she was sleeping only about 9-10 hours and eating two or three handful of very select variety of food.a day.  That’s about 9 hours of sleep at night and an hour nap during the afternoon.  This month, her average hours of sleep is up to 11-12 hours and eating four to five handful of much wider variety of food a day.  That’s about 8 hours of sleep a night plus two one and a half hour naps and eating two a small breakfast and two full meals afterwards.  This past weekend for lunch she had peas, carrots, corn, chicken, pasta, and soup all in one sitting.  That’s the most I’ve seen her eat both volume and variety wise.

Lately, we found that Ellis really responds to music.  Play anything with a beat, and Ellis will start dancing none stop.  So, as an experiment, we played some soothing melodies before bed time to see how Ellis responds.  I found a lullaby on youtube and put it on repeat.  It works wonders.  Ellis’ constitution instantly slows down a beat or two when I put this on play.  She becomes more suggestive to us putting her to bed, listening to us reading her stories, and not asking to play with toys or watch TV after we put her in bed.  If you recall, a few months ago, she had difficulties falling and staying asleep and even had a couple of nightmare episodes. However, since the music regimen is instituted, she’s been sleeping much easier and sounder.

Better sleep definitely has positive effects for her.  She’s less tired when walking around now.  She’s less grumpy in the mornings and when she doesn’t get her way with things.  Her food choice is less picky and she is definitely eating more.  Last weekend, she even asked me to play her more music for the first time.  She’s gradually become less passive.

    oh gosh. the picture of ellis sitting on the bench is absolutely outstanding. the colors, texture, shadows, and expression– everything works. dayum. even the backpack adds to the photo. great job!

    • http://etane.net/ etane

      i edited these when i was really sick. so.. there’s issues with the color… but that one was one of a few where color isn’t so much the main issue. i wish the left overs weren’t in the shot though.

      • Llips don’t lie

        too much curry too?

        • http://etane.net/ etane

          that’s u. i had sinus infection for the past few weeks.

          • Llips don’t lie

            wow, that’s super uncomfortable
            #getwellsoon

      • Phonow

        the leftovers don’t bother me in the pic. it adds to the story. but i understand what you are saying. the photo would be even more evocative without the leftovers.

        nevertheless, such a great photograph. i love it.

  • Llips don’t lie

    Joe just posted something you might be interested in.
    Nelson Mandela.
    Truth and forgiveness.
    I gave him props, lol

    • http://etane.net/ etane

      checking now. sws troll was going overboard last night i think.

      • Llips don’t lie

        he has a lot of time on his hands
        i’m amazed at the reams of text he can write day after day
        and he says he’s an old man lol

        • Phonow

          sws might be a female. he-she gives hints that she-he is a female.

          your son’s voltaire takemeback2reaganyears
          you keep saying he, but Acbc is a lady

          •sws94 your son’s voltaire a day ago
          Some of us are ladies and are called he.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Hmm
            Plot thickens, heh
            Love the sound pounding ttnn is giving himher

          • Phonow

            does sws sound like Rose to you?

          • Llips don’t lie

            Rose is bitchy
            This one tries to spin sense

          • Phonow

            yeah, rose has been getting really bad. she was a little more reasonable early on.

          • Llips don’t lie

            She just wants lin as curry’s backup
            As unbearable as “sir” Charles, who sees lin as a much lesser player to basically every other bk or white player, lol
            absolutely refuses to acknowledge that lin is STILL facing racism in the nba

          • Phonow

            wish charlie boy would find new stomping grounds (hint hint portal).

            at least sws stays at portal most of the time. thank gawd for little favors.

            hope Lin has a good game today. all of the negative chit on jl.net is getting to me.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            tina has always been a mystery to me. when i first saw her, she was sorta doing a survey on lin’s videos. maybe she works for NBA PR as does SWS as “she” tries too hard to protect the NBA vis a vis racism etc..

          • Llips don’t lie

            She’s very protective of bm, s Charles and those who are “objective ”
            Though her persona is hapless, nice keep the peace Asian
            It’s funny, but I had pegged her as an office peon who has to do the dirty work

          • Phonow

            interesting. your cia-nsa-kgb spider senses may be right. nba is big business, and they can hire pr people to tamp down accusations of racism.

            if the fricking nba wants to clean up it’s act, they should start with the g-d referees.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Spider sense is right haha
            I never thought of it quite like him

          • Phonow

            that is why i enjoy both of you. you think outside of the box.

            btw, re butt jokes, i love your comment about– where is jennylin when we need her. hahaha. my gaydar went blip.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Pretty sure she rolled her eyes lol
            that “girl” is disdainful of everything

            And you gotta admit that whole butt talk was straight up freaky
            I had to butt in and really joke about him

          • Phonow

            lol. kh is such a strange guy. i used to despise him. but compared to the new posters (s.charles, rose, etc etc), kh is actually quasi lovable.

            jennylin is an okay troll. that gaydar zinger made up for all of her nasty comments.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Yeah that was a gem lol

            Yeah about kh
            But all that nicey nicey crap with sw is just him warming up before he can say, “gotcha TROLL! You’ve stupidly fallen into my TRAP ”

            Lmao

          • Phonow

            i love it how kh’s emotions swing back and forth wildly within minutes. “i admire you; you’re a RACE-HATE TROLL; hey, great comment”. hahaha

          • Llips don’t lie

            Another thing, she claims she lives in la
            But never once went to live game nor even mentioned trying to when lin was on lal
            I just find that odd

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            she claimed to have met lin at lax

          • Llips don’t lie

            That’s lajane
            And she had pics to back her up

          • Llips don’t lie

            I hope so too
            It’s a very winnable game that kw will try hard to lose
            That’s why I’m not making an effort to catch the games anymore
            Game threads used to be fun earlier in the season
            Usually only hard core lin fans
            But the fakers have been coming more frequent lately

  • Llips don’t lie

    texting with weba
    is like talking to someone with hearing problems, haha
    He’s good most times, but gets funny when he tries to backtrack or talk too long on topics he has no firm grasp on

    • http://etane.net/ etane

      weba is someone on portal i assume

      • Llips don’t lie

        Web attorney

        • http://etane.net/ etane

          oh he acts like chairman. “i come in now and then” but he’s always there.

          • Phonow

            lol. i had the same thought. for someone who is never there, he is always there.

            the other people i love are those who say they can’t stand jl.net & love the portal, but (ugg) always come back.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            he’s been “off topic” happy lately. he also claims he used to fight racism when at usc. he’s kh lite.

  • Llips don’t lie

    Have you been watching the games lately?
    What’s your take?
    It looks as if the situation for lin in charlotte has turned toxic. ..
    Will be missing the game again today arghh

    • http://etane.net/ etane

      cav game, hornets played exactly like how they did during pre-season. so i thought mkg’s presence were essential. but, since then, games just suck again even with mkg.

      however, on paper, the line up is very good. big 3 to start and the two jeremys off the bench. it looks like a winning formula. yet, what doesn’t work is the individual plays. as the forum has stated, batum and kemba break plays up willingly. i think there’s truth to that.

      • Llips don’t lie

        What’s worrying to me, from a lin standpoint, is coach no longer playing nice guy
        Out right disrespect
        Just using him like a rented mule
        Threw him under the bus in the press too
        Uh oh

        • http://etane.net/ etane

          seems to be a trend where coaches are more afraid of players rather than the other way around.

          why is that? it could be agency and marketing… but i think it has more to do with agency.

          some people want lin to go for a super agent. that would be the easy way out i suppose.

          • Llips don’t lie

            I don’t know what it is about jeremy lin
            that makes it so easy for 5 teams now to walk all over him

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            well i wrote about it in the very last blog post i wrote about jeremy. don’t think anything has changed since then.

  • Llips don’t lie

    If you do watch the game
    Share your insights here pls
    So I don’t have to wade thru a basketball mountain of crap in order to read the good stuff after the game
    Tyia

    • http://etane.net/ etane

      i’ll share if the topic comes up hahaha. honestly i don’t watch entire games anymore just highlights. i canceled my ball stream which is good timing as it seems to be down indefinitely (per weba).

  • http://etane.net/ etane

    off topic. i find it funny that gloria steinem is supporting bernie after this:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/02/08/us/politics/gloria-steinem-madeleine-albright-hillary-clinton-bernie-sanders.html?_r=0

    (we can’t really be off topic since there’s no topic)

    • Phonow

      i think GS is supporting hillary. Gosh, both albright ‘s statement, and GS’s twitter were terribly tone deaf. If clinton’s camp “okayed” albright’s statement, clinton is in trouble.

      • http://etane.net/ etane

        no gs got berned and endorsed the bern today.

        • Phonow

          haha. i wonder what hillary did to piss off GS?

        • Phonow

          can’t find any reference to GS endorsing bern– where did you find it?

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            oops i misread the article. GS endorsed bern in a previous election not this one.

            “Not only was her statement offensive, it was also hypocritical. During Sanders’ 1996 reelection campaign, Gloria Steinem endorsed Bernie Sanders over Republican challenger Susan Sweetser, even starting her speech by joking that she was only there to “make Bernie Sanders an honorary woman.”

            http://usuncut.com/politics/watch-gloria-steinem-endorse-bernie-sanders-over-a-female-candidate/

          • Phonow

            if hilary wants to attract younger voters, i am not sure if she should showcase steinem. i understand that younger people do not vote, but having steinem up on the stage with her may alienate her more moderate backers.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            hil has been trying to polish up on her progressive cred. not saying this is right. just what her strategy is now. in fact, i think it’s a dreadful strategy especially the way her “people” are carrying it out. even her daughter called bern, president sanders.

          • Phonow

            poor chelsea. oops.

            one thing i like about sanders is that he is pushing the conversation left. trump is pushing the conversation into if-you-thought-sarah-palin-was-nuts-you-ainst-seen-nothing-yet.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            i akin trump to reagan. both successfully tapped into the silent majority.

          • Phonow

            you are right. fk. fk. this is spooky. i always believed americans had common sense re prez. but after gw jr won, i have lost all hope.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            i blame it on xs

          • Phonow

            you mentioned earlier about tina being a nba pr person. i think that the repugs hire people to bang the anti union, anti liberal drums. repugs own the media, and xs are easily brainwashed.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            u r wrong. it’s the repugs who are hired.

          • Phonow

            the repugs own the media. they hire repugs to bang the anti democ drums

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            News = rich people paying rich people to tell the middle class people to blame poor people.

            it is working all too well.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            i don’t see it

          • Llips don’t lie

            Wow

            Ms. Steinem, 81, one of the most famous spokeswomen of the feminist movement, took the sentiment a step further on Friday in an interview with the talk show host Bill Maher. Explaining that women tend to become more active in politics as they become older, she suggested that younger women were backing Mr. Sanders just so they could meet young men.

            “When you’re young, you’re thinking: ‘Where are the boys? The boys are with Bernie,’ ” Ms. Steinem said.

            Realizing that this was potentially offensive, Mr. Maher recoiled. “Oh. Now if I said that, ‘They’re for Bernie because that’s where the boys are,’ you’d swat me.”

            But Ms. Steinem laughed it off, replying, “How well do you know me?”

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            i think she was actually talking about girls.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Yes. She offended me with her ill informed take on young women

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            yes her statement is incredibly sexist. and she feels the bern the very next day. she is fickle like a girl.

  • Llips don’t lie

    Here’s another nba pr ‘spy ‘?

    The Number 1 Jeremy Lin Fan
    a few seconds ago
    Off topic since nothing much to talk about this game about Lin

    Looks like the other portal house site has about the same traffic as this one? They have about 700 comments on the game thread, not much lower than here. Is this a trend?

    Is it almost a 50/50 split of Lin fans between the two sites?

    • http://etane.net/ etane

      becuz he made a site traffic generalization?

      • Llips don’t lie

        But it’s like. ..what’s it to you, ya know?

    Is it possible that Kemba’s the best PG that Lin’s ever played behind, or in front of since Curry?

    • http://etane.net/ etane

      overall i find HIM agreeable though i don’t always agree with him. but, this particular comment is appropriate. kemba is better than green, price, bev, douglas and whoever else lin had to back up.

  • Llips don’t lie

    Find the casual way that some posters talking about white pp as kwailo so racist

    • Phonow

      cheer up etane. someone in portal is saying that Lin may be part of the iluminati. what “basketball” posted was rather long, so here is a excerpt.

      “People notice also these athletes/celebs/musicians give the same hand
      symbols quite frequently, you can see many internet photos of the okay
      hand symbol with the thumb and forefinger together and the last 3
      fingers curled to represent 666. And many times they will hold up this
      666 hand symbol over their right eye or both eyes to show they are
      illuminati if you will. You can see many pictures of Lin doing this
      hand symbol over his eye on the web…what does it mean?”

      • http://etane.net/ etane

        i’d say this post is foolish. but, based on where it’s posted (portal), i find it very humorous. their “idol” is actually the false prophet, the first sign of the apocalypse. wait… they might be happy about this rather than mad…

        • Phonow

          lol. i think it is jeremiah (the grey) again. he was banned (i think) a number of times. have to love the guy. his trolling is well written, and edgy.

          the other troll i love is Mike D’Antoni. damn. there are so many posters who write sincere messages to that troll. i do find myself praying that those posters are writing tongue in cheek.

          • Phonow

            I remember KH loved him. lol. i replied to Mickey D because I loved his humor. LMAO!!!

            all right. only warning. ;)

            did you see “basketball”‘s comment about JL being illuminati? haha.

          • Llips don’t lie

            I read illuminati in a sentence and was like what? ?
            Lol
            Some people are either hellbent on trolling them or really into this crazy stuff

          • Phonow

            it sounds like jeremiah the grey. he was banned. haha. the guy was not well liked, but always skirted the edge. keeps on coming back… but the mk-ultra illuminati mason post was his best work.

          • Llips don’t lie

            I didn’t read thru it
            It was fun to read him bc he made fun of a lot of people so well

    so in iowa, they caucus, and in new hampshire, they vote. so confusing.

      i’ve given up trying to understand “the process.”

        in ca it’s closed primary. don’t think i want to register to a party.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            wonder if bern would be so successful if he were running as independent. not like dnc is helping him out.

          • Phonow

            hard to run as independent. not as much media time given to them (yes, there were exceptions–ross perot).

            if bernie wins, i wonder if the dnc will just give up on this election– and plan for 2020.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            watch…after bern wins primary dnc is going to accuse bernie of hacking his own database then lock him out of his own data again.

          • Phonow

            you think warren will be vp?

          • Phonow

            to hilary? or to bernie?

            truthfully, i have not been paying attention. although i do have nightmares about trump-palin.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            hilary challenged bernie to find an instance where corporate donation influenced her vote. warren responded that clinton’s vote was bought to pass the bankruptcy bill.

            https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2016/02/09/elizabeth-warrens-critique-of-hillary-clintons-2001-bankruptcy-vote/

          • Phonow

            what i find interesting about the article is that warren has remained neutral in the current campaign. is warren hoping for a vp nomination?

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            i haven’t heard. i only heard she say she refused to run for president.

          • Phonow

            iirc, you were voting for hilary. me, i will probably vote for hillary, even if hubbie & liberal friends are sanders supporters. damn. i don’t know. sanders stands for everything i believe in. but when it comes to foreign relations, & how the system is played… hillary knows how to play the game.

            i gave $ to kucinich.. because i believed in what he said… not because i believed he could be president.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            yah but i was always behind bern just didn’tw ant to throw my vote away. now that he’s polling better than hil, i am even more behind him.

            i don’t think it matters as much that he’s going to be a lame duck president for 8 yrs. it’s better than 8 yrs of repubs impeaching hilary. and, 8 yrs of lame duck is better than 8 yrs of whatever koch/trump wants to accomplish during that time frame.

            further, after 8 yrs, demography will shift. buys us enough time to get better representation in other branches.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            i just read something by takemebacktoreaganyears. just thinking how much more liberal the US was back then than it is now.

          • Phonow

            isn’t it sad. even my right wing friend & i agree that “it” has gone too far. america is splitting apart.

          • Phonow

            i wonder who trump would appoint to supreme court. lol.

            i am going to wait n see who pulls ahead. if hillary is the clear winner, i may vote for sanders. sanders just won NH. wow. i would have lost a lot of money if I was a gambler.

  • Llips don’t lie

    Thought jlin has mentioned that he never checks social media during the season (yeah right)
    It’s interesting that his recent blog post just had one photo of his swollen ankle (see dot, no md required ) without any further comment.
    He only “whined ” about it in his Chinese language email, lol
    #mediasavvy

    • Phonow

      yep. picture paints a thousand words. but i hate to think he reads the chit on jl net or portal.

      • Llips don’t lie

        He gives himself away
        Too knowing about what fans are concerned about

        Feel bad for him
        It looks terrible

        • Phonow

          when you’re young, you think you can power through pain… but man, it catches up with you later in life.

          hope he does not play until after the all star break.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Don’t see them winning the game against the pacers
            Don’t want lin to play bc they play super physical

          • Phonow

            i worry about him play patrick bang bang beverley. dirty player w/an agenda.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Seems they’re like no longer friends
            Pev said some weird shyt some time ago that I can’t recall now

          • Phonow

            did a quickie google– is this what you meant? “Pat Bev on SiriusXMNBA today saying he’s no friend w/ @JLin7 & CP now they’re on other teams.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Yes, this
            What’s this bull crapp? After lin helped him so much
            Smh

          • Phonow

            very immature… and probably knows Lin was the better player.

            heck they all hated Lin because of Linsanity– felt that “they” should be on the cover of Sport Ill. rather than Lin.

  • Llips don’t lie

    Right now, at our old stomping ground, literally all the posts are garbage
    Smh
    Zipped out in 5 mins

    • Phonow

      yep. it has been pretty boring there. portal has been keeping me entertained–sort of like cruising through the weird part of youtube.

      • Llips don’t lie

        Past 2 days been very fruitful for “you can’t make this shyt up” posts
        Ditto. been lurking and laughing

        And ttnn’s posts are useful to understanding certain plays
        Her charts are easy to understand too

        • Phonow

          yeah, ttnn is pretty cool. but you do realize he (she?) defended sws when dot? wanted to ban him? eh, i can see why ttnn wanted to keep sws. better than conversing with dot. lol

          haha portal. can’t beat it for “weird.”

          • Llips don’t lie

            Yeah
            That was weird, saying they had the same view but reach different conclusions.
            Does she understand same view? But I must say her English gets better when she’s arguing with sw, heh

            And like him, she goes to many other sites to talk about lin
            Hats off

          • Phonow

            glad to know lin has a good fan in ttnn.

            crap how does sws have the time to post elsewhere? i mean, she spews copious amounts of posts. haha. i think she does some sort of night shift work. military? claims she lives in ny. and yet i see her popping up at all hours of the night.

          • Llips don’t lie

            There’s no doubt in my mind that she’s doing this for pay
            The amount of words she writes
            At all hours of the day, everyday
            And her weird somewhat robotic responses to being called out (doesn’t feel as angry as a normal fan ‘should ‘, more like mods, pls discipline this rude person so I can get to my ‘work ‘)
            A very weird ‘person’

          • Phonow

            ah, you and etane both feel she is a nba pr person.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Oh that’s all etane
            I thought she was being bullied, remember?
            In my defense, I only read her posts lightly since they are so long
            And I probably wanted to believe that the freaks were out there to get here

            So I was fooled

            But still do not know if ttnn’s olive branch is for real or to use as weapon to catch her unawares

          • Phonow

            yes, i remember you telling sws how she could stand the bullying there. truthfully, i don’t read anybody’s post carefully. haha. when people talk about bb, i glaze over because i do not know bb. i am at the website because i love jl’s story, and hope the best for him.

            i also love the different personalities — and become attached to different people. always enjoyed you and etane. haha your sense of humor is priceless!

          • Llips don’t lie

            Glad I made at least one person laugh

    bernie won in a land slide. i wonder how many female votes were steered towards bernie by his covert surrogates albright and steinem?

    wait it would be a good entry to post this at portal?

    • Phonow

      haha. if “someone” wants to post this at the portal. HE should do it himself. ;)

      • http://etane.net/ etane

        i nominate llips

        • Phonow

          llips is female. HE should do it himself. ;)

          let’s see…. who is male on this site?

          am trying to find out if sws is male or female. no answer yet. lol

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            are u sure llips if female? maybe it’s an “it” like sws. speaking of sws, read her “not a victim” post. smh.

          • Phonow

            I have no doubt, Llips is definately female. lol.

            sws sounds like a male to me. jeremiah the grey (who referred to sws as female) is usually the type to remember little tidbits like that. hmm

            jennylin– i think we both agree she is a he.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            i remember jennylin saying he’s a he. sws is an it as far as i know. llips could be a drag.

            and, according to kh and jt, i am obviously white.

          • Phonow

            from your photographs, you are definitely white. smh why would someone like you troll boards pretending to be asian?

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            obviously cuz there are lots of female asian fans at jl ready for the picking.

          • Phonow

            OUCH.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            i don’t think there’s anything wrong with wedding dj. with enough gigs, they make mad money. when i was married, i hired these newbie dj and photophers. $1.5k and $2k for each of them. years later i check their site out, they are booked and charging 5 times more.

          • Kpkafle

            Yeah he’s a big talker. I like getting under his skin. A couple of days ago, he was posting how much better portal was than .net. I reminded him that he was asked not to post there last season. HA.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            his reply would be “the site admin emailed and begged me to come back”

          • Kpkafle

            No something like “I predicted this three years ago, that I would be asked to come back.”

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            i predicted that you will type that 5 years ago hahaha

            actually, psalm DID ask KH to come back.

          • Kpkafle

            I don’t know I saw somebody claiming that a couple of posters with full white names on there were actually Asian trying to put more weight on their posts since they were pretending to be white. Who knows there are some psychopaths on that site, anyways.

          • Kpkafle

            I’m almost sure he. The ladies there are polite.

          • Phonow

            eh… there are a few “female” posters who i feel are male.

            especially the korean pop star avatar posters.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            i only know suzy bae. metal used to mack on “her”.

          • Phonow

            ok. last post (really).

            suzy bae is female. but not korean. she is filipino. saw her history– speaking in tagalog, and very concerned with protecting Bongbong. (marcos’ son)

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            imelda’s son? he sounds like a good guy.

            darn, i can’t remember her name. s/he shows up during game times.

            i think guys use pretty girl avatars to troll the guys posting there.

          • Llips don’t lie

            ..

          • Phonow

            no, suzy bae is female. filipino who (maybe) lives in korea???

            the avatar i am thinking of is a sexy korean pop star wearing a bright yellow dress.

          • Kpkafle

            Ok, I just looked at her/his posts. SWS is a she. She posted something about Jeremy having God in his heart, etc. etc. No guy would post something that sensitive on that site.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            not even the guys on portal?

          • Kpkafle

            I don’t know I never go there. It’s like going to a tea party meeting over there.

            s.charles is my pet peeve on jl.net. posts way too often. now sws has decided to come over also. sigh.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            i had no idea sws is from portal. i thought sws is from clutch.

            next time he says he’s banned from portal, ask it what its username at clutch was.

          • Phonow

            although sws posted on jl.net, the majority of s/his posts are on portal.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            how is it received there?

          • Phonow

            sh-it is hated by a number of them (son of voltaire, dorothy, I think adele), but ignored by others. dorothy wanted sws banned– ttnn asked that sws be spared. lol.

            o right i think you said somewhere that ttnn enjoys the banter. i think they both posted at clutch?

          • Llips don’t lie

            Ttnn wants to be lin’s uber personal driver
            Haha
            So no, don’t think she posts at CF
            But I saw her avatar at a Chinese forum someone sent me
            Doing the chart explaining thing

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            i recall ttnn posted alot at cf… i remember someone linked a chart she posted at cf.. it was a pretty good stat chart… that’s why i remember.

            Really George Livingston? ?
            Lol
            Dan Cohen too, probably

          • Kpkafle

            It’s actually the name of sherpa guide I met in Nepal. One of the most courageous, heroic mean I have ever met.

          • Phonow

            yes, i remember you saying that once. were you hiking the area?

          • Kpkafle

            Yeah but nothing exciting it wasn’t on Everest.

          • Phonow

            just being there is exciting enough. damn.

            were else have you hiked/traveled?

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            pho is an extreme hiker too.

          • Phonow

            baby hikes. piece of cake. lol.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            yah right you climbed all the big mountains in hawaii!

          • Phonow

            not the really nasty ones. i am not expert– more intermediate hiker,

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            lol i picture you wearing sandals and a paper bag lunch walking past professional hikers with their camel sacks, hiking shoes and walking poles.

          • Phonow

            i dislike hikers who banana republic/rei/pantagonia their outfits. lol. fake hikers. i am dirty t-shirt, cheap running shoes, and baggy stretchy pants hiker.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            see that’s a mark of a true hiker! i wear rei … at work haha. = X more comfy than slacks and shirts.

          • Phonow

            shh. i bought a north face rain goretex jacket from goodwill recently. 7.95?

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            lol you’d look like a wanabe hiker with that on. reminds me i bought my first north face backpack when i was in hs to use for school. i still got it. built to last.

          • Phonow

            yeah, north face is quality. but $$. i go cheap throwaway clothes on hikes– esp when you will get covered with mud from head to toe.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            let’s go hiking together. i will bring my north face back pack and bring a patagonia picnic blanket.

          • Phonow

            and i will bring my high heels & pink tutu.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            and the sherpa will have to carry you

          • Phonow

            haha. nice of you to volunteer.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            yah more likely you’d have a magic patagonia carpet ride

          • Phonow

            straight off the cliff. lol

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            wow not only are you a prolific climber but also a cliff diver? = P

          • Phonow

            i remember one hike where i actually fell off of a cliff. haha. slow motion fall– grabbed on to a tiny tree– saved my life. at least i know what my last word on earth would have been. “whoa”

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            were you sliding down a steep slope? that wouldn’t have happened if you were wearing padagonia

          • Phonow

            no, it was a sheer cliff. vertical. the fall would have been est. 500 feet. a little tree was growing out of the side of the cliff & i grabbed it.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            wait, that doesn’t sound like hiking… that sounds more like climbing..

          • Phonow

            contour trail.

          • Phonow
          • http://etane.net/ etane

            so you were hanging onto that bush for life? how long ago did this happen? did your life flash in front of your eyes?

          • Phonow

            gosh, i must have been in my early 30′s. fell about 15-20 feet– and “grabbed” that branch with the crook of my elbow. my hand would not have been strong enough to hold me. the hardest part was getting back up to the trail. nothing to hold on to– only gravel.

            haha no. life did not flash in front of my eyes. maybe it would have 480 feet later.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            glad your something was strong enough to hang on if not your hands. you had to climb back up 20ft up that steep ass wall? that shit is steep!

          • Phonow

            laie trail is wide and easy. but i always have the tendency to walk right on the edge. my own fault. haha.

            yep, i took that climb v-e-r-y slowly. haha.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            pho: i always have the tendency to walk right on the edge

            sounds like a line in a movie .. or what james dean said right before he got into his porsche…

            LOL, that is what the White American hikers were wearing, Patagonia and REI.

            when i see that kind of clothes, i keep away. all show, no skills. liability.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Lol

          • Kpkafle

            That is all that is required in Nepal. The different trails are for different experience levels. The sherpas carry your gear anyways and they set up lunch for you too. It’s not easy but not that difficult as well.

          • Phonow

            i would only hire a sherpa because i know they need $.

            otherwise, i believe in carrying my own stuff. hiker’s code.
