    Expensive coffee that I pay way too much money for, along with chocolate-covered marzipan and cigars, although I've recently given up tobacco since my dentist said it would permanently ruin my teeth unless I quit, and I'm too vain to let that happen. My favorite were Punch brand.

    I also like old black-and-white horror movies, Hallmark holiday movies like those constant low-budget Christmas films around December, and Harry Potter.

    I've got at least one, on a quick search, from the 1880s, and 85 from the 1890s?

    Did they have recordings in the 1880's besides Edison maybe? I know there were a few from the 1890s.

    Presumably. I found that one quickly, but recall a couple others. One was simply a man laughing. Another was birds chirping. I think they were from the 1880s. I got them somewhere. Long ago, there was a collector on the Usenet that posted hundreds of such songs that I downloaded. All in .mp3 format. I also have a box of Edisons in a shed out back I've never gotten around to converting. They used to be easy to find at garage sales and swap meets.

    A coworker of mine is building one right now. Somehow, he plans on getting a jacuzzi bath into it. Personally, I'd be fine with any amount of space, so long as I have the internet and ample space for a desktop computer. And a couch and TV for console games. And a large bed. And a buttload of wall space for my posters/art.

    Okay, maybe I'd not be great in a tiny home.

    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....

    I'm with you mustard. You can indulge in it, or wallow, but indulgence and pleasure are two separate things. I can't say that I have ever enjoyed it.

    There is a lot to untangle here, it is obvios you were born to be a writer.

    Most if not all revolutions are born in pain and blood, remember the pen (keyboard) is mightier than the sword.
