Enamel paints would hold up pretty well, but will be much more of a monetary investment than a second pair.

I didnít know enamel could be used for paint, I only knew it made up teeth

Tooth enamel and paint enamel is different stuff, same word.  It's more because they have the same "role" in being a hard, shiny protective layer around something softer underneath.

Tooth enamel is mineral: calcium phosphate.  Enamel paint is usually organic (in the chemistry sense: based on carbon).

EDIT: something tells me it would be possible to develop enamel paint based on tooth enamel.  It would be amusing too - imagine the social media flurry when it is "discovered" that it's made from teeth!

SECOND EDIT: yes sorry I had to be the pedant.

Oh, I didnít know it was different, thank you for the clarification. I didnít realize we used the same word for very different chemicals.

Oh, very much! Welcome to a whole new world of delightful language! Things can get a bit silly here though, so take it all with a pinch of salt.

...wait fuck no not that sal-

My wife spent all our money on stuff and now we might get evicted.

Hoping we can find like 300$ in like 4 days.

Basically she took over finances and made a number of mistakes, and now we do not have all of our rent money. Also, we have 5 days to make up the difference.

We've been in trouble for a while and I think she was afraid to tell me. She was in a creatively abusive relationship with a legit sadist before we got together and it was empowering for her to do our finances, so I took a hands-off approach. Memories of that are probably what made her afraid to say anything too.

Anyway we either find money or get our homeless on until we find a place that will let us live there with an eviction on our record in an undoubtedly less-than-safe part of town. Also with a special needs toddler.

First step: immediately call up your renting company, tell them what happened and ask if instead of eviction you can arrange some kind of payment plan.

Nope. They got nothing. Already served us notice that we have until Tuesday.

Probably going to need to borrow money from someone or GTFO for a while.

Fell over backwards and nearly cracked my head on a concrete slab while trying to remove 10+ years of overgrown plant roots and mud from our pond. Luckily just wound up hurting my arm and thigh, but in retrospect I really wish my mother hadn't decided to get me to deal with the pond plants while she was already removing the slabs from around the pond and laying them out behind where I was pulling.

Until I get my cancer treatment sorted out, back to work and have my driver's license, my wife and I alternate staying at eachother's apartment. I share mine with Mom, she shares hers with her aunt. I would prefer staying at her place just for the relative peace and quiet...

...except for her aunt's gigantic, ugly, non-functional """""decorative""""" cookware. She has something like 20 bowls, many of which are chipped, all different makes and sizes, and ugly as sin to the last one. There's enough baking dishes to serve a kitchen at a large restaurant, but exactly one medium-sized pan. And of course, the vast majority have been unused for as long as I've known my wife. And since they're her aunt's stuff, there's not much we can do.

At least I'll be able to really appreciate buying new plates and bowls when we eventually do move out next year...

I have too many beers in the fridge, I need to handwash fewer dishes and use the dishwasher, I need to not put particular things in the dishwasher, I bought the wrong soda container, said soda container sprayed soda all over some plastic bins, which I'm not allowed to clean up, I'm expected to do more dishes to help out around the place but it's so touch-and-go with which ones or when, and when the dishes are in the dishwasher, there's some arbitrary amount of time that they're heat drying so I'm not supposed to touch the but I keep interrupting it regardless because I'm trying to do the dishes I've been asked to do more of. Anything I move ends up in the wrong place.

I'm keenly aware that I'm just getting underfoot at this point and it's dampered a fun evening wherein I got to shoot nerf guns at and with a bunch of strangers in an empty library. I'm a little worried I'm just racking up a lot of favour debt staying here and I'm being neither helpful nor comfortable to alleviate or as a result of that.

My stupid captioning account got closed. I had to have so many individual projects with good scores by the time I'd captioned so many minutes, and I lost track of how many minutes I had captioned and ended up being like 0.15 short of the target score in one category.

It's infuriating enough that I'm still in "fuck that place, I don't need 'em anyway" mode, but I'm really upset nonetheless.
