WhatWouldJohnCrichtonDo?

Posted

Oooh, yikes! Sorry to see that! I've never tried it, but my mom swears by rubbing alcohol to remove ink from lots of different things. I guess you'd have to be careful on wood floors to keep it from drying out the wood or harming the finish. Whatever you try, good luck. :my_smile:

Yes!  Kinda like putting their doggy paw imprint in freshly poured cement -- forever after you'll remember them by it...  :face_dog:

What I have tried so far is prayer, ignoring it, distracting myself by steam cleaning the stove top while listening to a documentary on all the things that can kill you inside a Tudor home, and reorganizing the linen closet while listening to a documentary on all the things that can kill you inside a Victorian home, washing my kitchen and bathroom floors while listening to all the things that can kill you inside an Edwardian home, and posting here.

None of those things have worked - I'm surprised, too.

tbh if I could I'd throw and area rug over and forget it because that's the kind of lazy slack-ass that I am...but it's a couple feet from the top of the stairs and not exactly the place I want to put something to trip over.

Tomorrow I'm going to try mineral spirits and super fine grade steel wool which will probably result in ruining it completely.

Oh my floors are so full of character they are going to start writing character booklets for Gothard.  (Not really - even my floors hate him.)

I saw one of those diy home shows once and a couple was purposely ruining the finish on a perfectly good hardwood floor.  They called it distressing the wood so it looked battered and lived in.  I told my husband were going to save money on refinishing the floors and just tell people were distressed the on purpose :)

I would try napping then chocolate and wine - be sure to do it in that order or I doubt it will work.

If you must, but even after a few gallons of iced tea I think you will still be able to see that ink...

Burning the house down would have looked cooler. I'm just saying.

Yeah, but this was easier and has the added bonus of not leaving my family homeless.  

I'd hate to disappoint you.  Though I recall you refusing to burn your house down at my suggestion when you had some kind of imaginary imposter-bee threatening you.

But here you go - one house burning,,,

I did nothing of the sort! I was ready, willing, but not able to burn the house down. I couldn't get out because impostor bees everywhere, and I didn't want to burn the joint to the ground with me in it! Had I come home to the impostor bees, I would have burned the joint to the ground with no regrets.

I see you  already solved. I was going to suggest that you tried with an eraser. It works very well when my toddler decides to to add artsy decorations on wooden surfaces, unfortunately it doesn't work on the walls :(

i was stunned - when it came up so fast I did a double take and felt stupid for making it a bigger job in my head.

it was a gel pen and even though I'm not a colorist maybe the collective gel pen love of FJ worked some magic. :)

When my youngest was 4 we took a nap together one afternoon while the other kids were in school.  I was wearing shorts and a t-shirt and woke up to the horror of finding my legs and arms covered in drawings of pirate things.  

In black sharpie.

apparently he needed less of a nap than I did and woke up before me and found drawing on me a fun activity.  Maybe I should have tried dish soap and SOS on my skin back then.

The magic eraser?  That always worked great on my walls when my kids were little...but it was so wearing in the paint I hated to use it.

I was telling my other half about your floor debacle and he was all man about it and said "well yeah, the floor has a finish on it that you can just buff out easily enough...."  Me: eyeroll.  He just doesn't get the drama involved here, clearly.

      I find anyone who only thinks their political and religious beliefs are right and thinks anyone who doesn't agree with them are brainwashed insufferable. I will likely never vote for the UK Conservative party because I don't share their values but I have had respect to some extent respect for the party leaders and Prime Ministers who do a difficult job regardless of what I think of them. Boris may be the exception to this because he is so terrible and makes me miss Theresa May and Gordon Brown and those two were bad at being PM.

      Ah you're right Ezra turned 14 in May. I thought his birthday was in the late fall / winter like the other kids. It looks like Simon and Della are almost 3 years. Then she really hits her stride: Della and Evy and Nola are a couple months shy of 2 years, Evy and Nola and Theo are a few months over 2 years, Theo and Honor are two years and a month, and Honor and Shiloh are also 2 years and a month. The new babies will be about a 1 and a half years younger than Shiloh.

      Is Simon 13, or soon to be such?

    • Newest "Life with Gwen and Joe".  It's about "The Importance of Christ-like Words and Speech."  It's the week of camp and I don't see anything approaching social-distancing at all.  Gwen is in shorts and a little top with spaghetti straps.  Of course, she's got on platform heel with it.  Silly, vain woman...  She starts out by talking about the tongue and about how much trouble you can cause with it.  She goes over the "not taking the Lord's name in vain" in the Ten Commandments" (which she refers to as "the top ten commands") and then she says that you shouldn't even use replacement words for the bad words because Jesus probably wouldn't do that either. And if you're out there in the world using cuss words or sounds-like cuss words, you're responsible for messing up God's kingdom.

      Gwen says that people who talk pleasantly and without anger or cuss words have a better life.  She specifically reminds the boys that they're "not cool" if they use bad worlds or words that sound like cuss words.  She says that others will roll their eyes at them and they will be in a minority.  They'll stand out for the wrong things.  People won't like them.

      Joe, once again, got very little speaking time.  Gwen let him read a few verses and, at the end, he got to talk about how proud he was of all the campers.

      Spoiler

       

      At the ends, Joe tries to start dancing with Gwen but she just stands there.  Is the bloom off this particular boy-toy, Gwen??

      Spoiler

      On his web page Spanky begs for "ongoing, monthly support" and makes a weak case for why being forgiven of his sins and scandals entitles him to be a minister again:

      Quote

      It is a deep pain to me that for the rest of my life, any time I cross paths with anyone who knew me, the first thing that will come to their mind is Ashley Madison or DUI. They may say, “Love your podcast” or more likely, “Love your dad” but my scandals, I know, come immediately to mind. It doesn’t make me angry. I get it. I’m sure if I ran across James MacDonald or Mark Driscoll my own mind wouldn’t immediately turn to ways they have been used in the kingdom. My hope, however, is that if such a meeting should ever take place, following hot on the trail of their public failures would be this thought- “Jesus saves sinners like us.”

      Ron Blankenship responds that, after all his numerous scandals, how is anyone to trust Sproul again?

      Quote

      So how is anyone to know if you can ever be trusted in ministry again? What you write here doesn’t help your case. Any minister with a platform runs the risk of discrediting the gospel message of being “saved from sin” if he repeatedly falls prey to scandalous sins himself. Getting a ministry platform in the first place shouldn’t come easily, although for the sons of ministry celebrities it often has, and often with disastrous consequences.... It sounds a lot more like playing the victim. It doesn’t help your case for being restored to ministry. Go back to the basics. What does the bible say about the qualifications for ministry? Surely you know. There are objective standards, all specified in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9. Everyone who’s professed faith in Christ is forgiven of their sins, no matter how bad. But not every forgiven person meets the biblical criteria for being a minister, let alone being restored to ministry after having lost it.

      Rather than responding Sproul (as Ron Blankenship puts it) "hides behind his wife's skirts" and has Lisa respond. She does so in typical Lisa attack-mode, spewing out threats of impending hell fire on "slanderers." Sproul then praises his wife for her sagacity and encourages Ron to learn from her fine example. Sproul is a founding father of the Patriarchy movement. I can't help but find this all quite laughable.
