    Here you go, Harry.  This Yars' box is probably the very worst in my collection.  Here's a picture of the innards to give you an idea.  I can't pull the liner out, as I Elmer's glued the bottom shut.

    Pro-tip:  The USPS Priority Mail small flat rate boxes fit perfectly with minimal cutting to height.  Putting one of those inside the box as a liner will square it up nicely.

    I'm sorry to hear this @socrates63. Hopefully you get to feeling better soon!
    On the bright side, there should be enough Trek to get you through recovery. 🖖

    Listen, bud.  I'm telling you straight away.  You did something amazing.  Putting yourself out there is not easy.  Many don't.  And they regret it.  You feel bad today, and that's perfectly normal.  But keep on going.  Keep your eyes open.  Make friends with as many people as you can.  Be you.  Keep growing and learning.  Trust me, that special person just for you will come along.

    Friend zone is a lot better than the No Friend Zone 😉 And as Rick said, you have time. She now knows you have a heart for her, and she will be watching you. So keep on hanging out with her and having fun.

    Listen to Uncle Rick there.
    One thing I would add is there is a "safe" middle ground and remove the anxiety associated with "dating" on an official basis. Ask her if she wants to hang out at the mall or food court to grab lunch. Keep it loose. Add a friend or two (yours or hers) to alleviate even more pressure if you feel the need.
    My sons are 17 and 20, and this is what they've been doing. Neither of them has had a girlfriend of the steady type yet.

    How cool that you entrust us with this. 
    I'm 52 years old, and have been married for 28 years.  All I have to offer is old memories and the advice I gave my own kids (who are now in their 20's).   Probably not too useful.  But here goes.
    Rejection - It's normal to be fearful of it, but don't be.  Get used to it!  Not just with people and relationships.  There'll be job offers, college applications, etc, etc, etc.  The more you face it and deal with it, the easier it gets.  No means no.  Listen well.  If someone says "no", honor it. No arguing!  That's where honor and respect come from.  Go slow.  Listen at least as much as you talk. You let me know if you have specific questions, ok?  I don't know you well, but I know you're smart and articulate and decent.  Trust me, you are well ahead of most others with these three traits.

    That is correct!
    I'm not an artist, and some of the better-decorated cookies were my sister's. These are pre-cut cookies, so I think if I had some better ways of applying frosting (like one of those frosting bag things) I think they could look better. 
    So yes, that's Gingerbread Man Samus and Mario. I used a tableknife to carve the metroid, Pac-Man, and Blinky. I think next year I will cut the cookies BEFORE they are baked. But I still think they look nice. Christmas cookies needn't be fancy. They're all going to the same place!

    What fun! I loved baking Christmas cookies with my Grandma as a kid and my daughter when she was younger. 
    I see Mario, Pac-Man, Blinky, the Super Star, and what I think is a Samus Aran.

    Thanks @HDN! Yeah, I'm pretty proud of how it turned out. It was one of those last minute ideas... My girlfriend and daughter with both quietly skeptical before they saw it. LOL!  It was important for me to cover different games/iterations, including Atari 2600 Pac-Man. I'm glad that you like it!

    That's AWESOME! Honestly, you must be so proud of yourself!
    And you should be. That tree is fantastic. I think my favorite parts about it are the blue and yellow lights and the various Pac-Man ports and games represented.
    FANTASTIC job!

    Making your own ornaments seems like a very fun thing to do, and a way to keep busy during the pandemic! I haven't made any this year, but last year I made one commemorating the 150th Birdcage Day (a holiday of my own invention because of my Lake Michigan lighthouse geekiness).
    Meanwhile, over here I have a game to work on, a video to edit, some work to do, and a carousel slide projector to attempt to fix. I've been trying to do too much at once, and I should really try to stop giving myself so much work! I mean, it's all fun work I like to do, but at some point it just becomes too much!
