Title: What RUINED your day today?
Post by: MintJulie on May 10, 2016, 08:14:54 PM
Spin off of "What made your day today?"


So, what ruined my day today?

My Kuerig broke - pump quit.  No coffee for my drive to work.
Get to work.   The Kuerig is broken - pump quit. 
WTH, is it national Kuerig break down day?

 :(,
Jules

Not today but a week ago my Capresso coffee grinder/brewer conked out with a burnt out heating element. I called customer service to learn I had two options: send it in for replacement heating element, cost $160, or send it in and get a new one for $108. They pay for shipping but I pay $22 for packing. Since then I've been making do with instant coffee. Thot I'd hate it, but it ain't so bad. Capresso was also not bad, but not terrific, questionable whether the difference is worth $130 plus the nuisance.

With all the advances being made in material science over the last few decades, seems to me it shouldn't be that hard to get a heating element more durable than two year lifetime.

What ruined my day today is my son calls to say his blood test came up anemic and borderline high cholesterol, so $430 for one prescription (fourteen day supply), $135 for other prescription (30 day supply), neither one covered by his Obamacare insurance.

I was IV'd myself with red blood cell transfusion a few years ago, covered mostly by medicare, been taking iron supplement pills (non-prescription) since then, plus watching my diet. Docs have been flailing away at me to take statins for cholesterol for years, like ten or fifteen years. My numbers are not much higher than when I was in high school, but the medical oligopoly thinks everybody should be taking statins, non-generic of course, whether they need them or not. I eat what I like, but make sure I have healthy choices. No statins, no significant movement in my cholesterol numbers.

I know it's not all Hillary's fault, but she's a proud and happy supporter of the disaster that is our healthcare system, where we spend more than any other country and get less for our money. No vote for her from me. Not that she gives a shit.

Orange sherbet.

Orange sherbet is the best.   Did you drop it in your lap or something?  How could it ruin your day.

mmmm, summer time, ice cream trucks, Push-Up Orange Sherbets.

Pistachio is Better..
Especially on a hot summer day.
Get a tall glass and put in ice cream then pour orange juice over it..

And no that didn't ruin my day.

Orange happens to be my favorite sherbet. I was tasked with the procurement of said sherbet at round3:30 am. Mid cleaning the apartment, covered in dish water. My partner complained enough to make me drop what I was doing. No socks clean because that load was still going( I dispose wearing shoes with no socks), couldn't find my keys so I had to use the space, and the first 2 places I went were out. The third just doesn't sell sherbet at all. Then before I can get to the fourth place she calls while I'm driving and process to chew me out about the dishes soaking in the sink and how that's the sink she washes her hands over. I tell her I'm driving and talking on the phone is unsafe. To which she responded by changing the thing she chewed me out about to why it was taking so long to get sherbet when SHE could almost piss on the back of a grocery store. Before I could respond I was pulled over. It's not a ticketable offense here to talk on the phone while driving only text but it was obvious this was why he stopped me. 45 minutes later I'm back to my sherbet hunt and at this point I'm so put off of the idea sherbet even exists. I get the cursed tub of what at this point is practically the bane of my existence to the front of the store where a man with an overflowing cart whips in front of me like someone stealing your parking space. He then has the fucking audacity to say "I win". At which point I force myself to operate under the assumption he's mentally deficient in hopes of resisting the urge to use half the items in his cart to give him the world's most varied enema. 23 minutes in Que and a half melted tub of sherbet later I  step up to the cashier who promptly say " ugh, how do you eat this stuff?" After paying $6.87 for fucking sherbet, I walk to my car which didn't start. Battery's flat. A truck drives up close to reveal the "winner" from inside who says "Battery Dead? That sucks." Then actually proceeds to drive away! So call my friend to give me a jump, explain what's happened while the leads do their thing. He laughed, which I fully expected because though he's a trusted friend he is an asshole.  In response I offered him some sherbet juice and told him to go fuck his mother. Then thanked him for getting out at such an hour and we went our ways. Got home put the "sherbet" in the freezer and promptly got yelled at again. After which I went back to cleaning and laundry for the next 3 hours.

I am glad the cop didn't choose to ticket me for any of the non Street legal bits on my car.

Also, I know my sherbet thing is nothing in comparison to having a loved one in hospital and hope everything goes well.

But yeah,  orange sherbet.

I KNOW RIGHT!

 I had to go get more today because that one was "too icey". My response was "use the blender and pretend it's sorbet." This was not received well.

This is how I know I love her because anyone else would have died in their sleep.

 ;D well spotted. (This should go in the 3 things thread) We aren't married. We've been together for around 8 years. I might say gf here or there but I prefer partner as we aren't actually ingaged and the word fiance has always left a bad taste in my mouth.

Mask of the Phantasm, Damn I went to the theater to see that. Second best Batman movie I payed for at the theater. I actually felt like I got my $4.50's worth  ;D
Heath Ledger as the Joker, I'd pay ten bucks again to see that in the theater and I own the Blueray.

I know bunny trail I'm sorry but just one more bit to ponder Darth Vader with Banes' voice.....puts a whole new feeling to "Luke I am your father" without the Mufasa. Just soak that in. Not saying its good just....yeah :emot_laughing:

Oh, you have no idea how amateur that is. My daddy is a slut beyond compare.

He called me last night with a "heads" up. :roll: get it?

Dad: Hey, kiddo, can't wait to see the new baby. By the way, one of your sisters wants to meet you.

Me: My sister already met me.

Dad: I mean a sister I made for you.

Me: Are you serious? Didn't we have a talk about condoms?

Dad: yes, but your advice fell on deaf ears.

Me: It always does with you.

Dad: I can tell you're upset.

Me: When am I not with you?

Dad: Look, she wants to meet you, are you cool with that?

Me: No.

Dad: Well I already told her you were.

Me: Figures. After all, I never did have much of a say when you wanted something from me.

Dad: Let's not bring that up.

Me: You never had a problem with doing that with me either.

Dad: Her mom will call you.

I hung up.

Going about my work (and typing a message on KB) when a window pops up saying that my computer will restart in 5 minutes and tells me to save my work.   No option to restart later, so I click OK.   Then, 4-1/2 minutes later a window pops up and a countdown from 30 starts.  No option to postpone.   5, 4, 3, 2, 1 ...Then  BALOOP, screen goes dark.    20 minutes to update and restart.  grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

To be fair, it's been asking for a reset since yesterday morning and I keep clicking the Restart Later button.

UGHHHH   what the HECK is going on

Now, in the middle of typing out a text, my iPhone decides to update the software.    I'm literally typing a message and a pop up says, "Updating software x.x.x in 5 seconds".   And it shut down, right in the middle of my typing.

Okay, maybe these things didn't ruin my day, but they surely ticked me off.

When your computer is your livelihood, never allow your children to use it. Somehow, they managed to mess up all of my Wi-Fi connections, and disable the drivers for my printers. I really could kill somebody right now.


Toe, it usually is the other way with us.  We screw up something on the computer, tablet, etc and then we have to ask one of our 7 or 8 year old grandchildren to undo what we had done.

Had to have the death talk with my 4 year old after she couldn't understand why a dog laying in the road didn't get up and move out of the way.

I had to explain that it was dead, and couldn't move anymore. She didn't get it. "Then help the dog move it's not safe there" I had to explain the concept of it to her, and that one day it will happen to all of us and we're only here a short time, then we die and make room for others to live.

"We won't get to go to the park anymore or have fun playing?"

I think the "death talk" to a four year old is a little to premature.
Explaining some or certain aspects of death might be okay, but not everything that you did. I'm not sure a four year old can "fully" grasp the ideas behind a "death talk".
But before someone has a fit, I also think that yes the "death talk" should come at an age appropriate time.

Love,

Twice I have had slivers from paneling underneath my fingernail such that you could see it. One of them I could actually get ahold of to pull out. The second, however, broke off flush and I had to dig to just be able to grab it.

I've had to do it before. It ruined my day, but it was time for the talk. I had to tell my daughter after she watched Charlotte's web the first time. It's not easy, it's horrible, but when the time comes it comes and there's no real best time to talk about it. Better she and I talk about it than let her watch Charlotte's web.

I might have put it off, but she was really upset and I had to explain the situation. There's no point in leaving things out. It was a talk we'd have eventually.

That ruined the day, but it would have ruined any other day.

That trick never worked for me.     Usually some exercise or a nap helps.   Excedrin most of the day hasn't worked.

I crack my neck constantly when I have a headache. It doesn't help.

Sorry, no miracle cure. Sleep it off is this the only thing you can do.

Accidentally broke my MP3/FM radio player I use when I clean the house.

BUT, stretching my blonde IQ to the breaking point, I took the rechargeable battery out of another one that died out, took the one out of my broken one and fixed my old one with the dead battery.

much smaller battery, but lasted 6 hours without dying.

Liked the old one better anyway. So ruin turned into salvage.

Title: Loss of a feathered friend
Post by: msslave on May 27, 2016, 04:22:06 AM
Today I read the obituary of Harriet, one of the foremost ambassadors for Eagles and conservation of our heritage.  Since 2000, Harriet was one of the Eagles at the National Eagle Center in Wabasha, Minnesota.  She retired a year ago from public view.  Recently she quit eating and as a result wasn't getting the pain medication she needed.  The decision was made to end her suffering.

Harriet was unable to fly due to injuries after being hit by a car.  Though unable to fly again, the flew into the hearts of so many who visited the center and got to meet her.

Harriet also traveled extensively.  She'd been on the Today Show and the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.  There were many visits to VA Hospitals where she helped lift the spirits of veterans.  Countless schoolchildren were able to see our country's symbol up close through Harriet's visits to them.

At 35 and having lived the first half of her life in the wild before being hit, Harriet was very long lived.  Her visage graces many of Minnesota's license plates that are sold to raise money for preserving natural resources.

After reading of her death, I went to tell my wife about it.  I found I was so choked up I could hardly talk and yes, some tears were shed.  There are several other Eagles at the National Eagle Center to carry on Harriet's "work".  Still she was a very special bird.

I'm attaching a picture I took a few years ago.  She always had that feather sticking up on top of her head.  It's a result of scarring from her injuries.

I was supposed to spend the next two days yelling at people and chasing motorcycles but got sent home this morning (with 1/2 day pay) due to last minute student cancellations. I love teaching people how to ride motorcycles. However, with the cancellations we were looking at an instructor to  student ratio of almost 1 to 1. That just does not make good business sense considering how well paid I am. I don't need the money so that sting isn't there. But, now I have to find other things to do before going back to "work" at my permanent gig on Monday.

The fact that certain members had to abuse the PM system to the point we had to set these limits.

And YES, I'm the one that requested it after being threatened myself by these asshats

Well, I was busy telling someone how cute you were.   Then I got the sudden urge to talk dirty to you and I tried PMing you.   Said my limit of 5 in an hour so I couldn't chat you up.
I've since lost the urge.

Shops 24/7 for at least another 2 weeks. I'll be there at 7am tomorrow.

I know it's not fair to compare your job with mine.
So I'll apologize now if I seem like a complete bitch to you (to be honest this is not directed at you). But people like to complain about the long hours that there job may entail, however have you ever heard a farmer complain about his/her job.?
Would you like a run down of my job.?
It's 24/7 everyday -365 days a year.
It's up at 5:30AM and finished (usually) around 7PM.
There are no Vacations, There are no Holidays, Christmas and Thanksgiving come in-between the work that has to be done. New Years  means nothing to me, you may get to go to a party and so do I, but at 5:30AM I have to be out in the barn feeding horses. The best part about my job is that my job is right out my front door (No commuting, unless you consider walking down a flight of stairs commuting, That's right Watcher had it right when he pokes fun about the hayloft, It's where I live 1600 sq. feet above 20 stalls below me). Did you want to hear about my nights.? Spring time takes the biggest toll on any farmer, simply because spring time (except for Dairy) is when all the new born appear (especially horses) and they do it at the wonderful hours of 3AM. (Only the Vet's job is worse than the farmers). My job may not seem like much, and I'm on KB a lot (only because, My office is my kitchen and the computer is in the kitchen). I don't really complain about my job, and I'm pretty sure you don't really complain about yours that much (to be honest if you did or I did, we would not be doing it). The greatest part about my job is that I get to spend time traveling with horses all over the world (that's when my parents farm guys help out with my place). So, with the exception of the travel, farming is one of those jobs that has no down-time. And I've just ranted about the easy stuff. Not even gotten into the training of the horses. Don't get me wrong I'm not complaining about what I do, I would not trade it for anything in the world, just as I'm sure you wouldn't just walk away from what you do (unless you win the lottery).
Okay Rant Over...(and no I don't want to swap jobs for a day, I hate office work).

Love,
Liz

What ruined my day?   The seas got rough within 90 minutes of us dropping our lines in the water.   The charter captain cancelled the trip.   It was pretty rocky out there.    1-2 footers when we started.   4-6 footers when he called it.    Dang, this girl was on fire. I was actually singing that as I reeled in my 3rd one.   :)

Same five year old mare also has a abscess on the right hind foot, nothing to do about that except stall rest and soak foot every day. So she is out of training and my wallet is a whole lot lighter.

I took a coffee mug to work on Tuesday because I got tired of drinking coffee out of styrofoam cups. Dropped it before I could use it.  >:( 

Bright side - that was the worst thing that happened all day. The mug I brought in on Wednesday survived the week.

A lonely teenage broncing buck, with a pink carnation and his dad's pick up truck, tried to pass me on the left-hand side, as I was making a left-hand turn. I think my vehicle I s totalled. The frame is bent. It's not a total disaster, because injuries are minor, and I have Insurance.  But oh how I do not look forward to all the shit I have to go through with the claims forms, the inspections, the haggling, and getting a new vehicle... More forms and haggling.  Not a good way to start the summer.

I was in a similar accident. Rich little bitch was fuckin' around on her phone and plowed right into me. The family refused to pay for anything so I fuckin' sued them. They could have easily payed what was owed and been done with it but my lawyer nailed them hard. They had no case, all the evidence was 100% against them and the judge wasn't gonna buy her being a neglected little rich bitch. She also didn't even have a valid license.

She very nearly killed me and I still have the injury she gave me.

My ex not paying child support.  Back to court...

I'm using the fact that my ex never paid child support as a "you ain't gettin' any of my pension" weapon if she ever tries to come for some of it. The best I would agree to would be 1/2 of my contributions during the time we were together. And then, even though the kids are now in their late 20s, I would ask for back support and her half of the debt we accumulated while we were together.

The total amount of child support I received was a one time payment of $50.00. I had primary custody of our two girls for 9 years. We live on either end of the continent which means shared custody was that in name only.

Seriously!?!?!?!?! I am so so so jealous. Is it an early build or late build? I am told the early ones were hit and miss because they had a lot of bugs to work out. The later ones are much better because they had fixed most of the design issues by then. The coolness factor far out weighs any issues they had in my book.

Did you, by chance, find a kilo hidden somewhere in the car? HAW Haw haw!!!

1981. We bought it for about $33,000. My mom talked him down from 40 reminding him that it's not like it actually travelled through time or could even make it to 88MPH.  :emot_laughing: He did take care of it and fixed a lot of problems with it so $33,000 was fair.

Now it's costing a small fortune to turn into a time machine. It'll light up and do all kinds of awesome things. I visited it a few days ago and the guy building it for me is doing it down to the smallest detail. And charging me to the smallest detail.  :roll:

I wish I found a kilo. I could have sold it to ease the costs. Oh well. It'll still be awesome when my daughter passes it down to her kid.

Quickbooks and Windows.

First Windows insists on updating a couple of weeks ago.

Now QB needs an update, but wait, not just an update.  An update, a complete reinstall, and 15 minute restart of computer.   Then when I opened it......a new password which it wouldn't take because the fine print said to use at least one capital letter.

My wife and I were cuddling in our home theater we have. Shut up, it was my moms money to spend and it's incredible and you'd be insanely jealous if I told you any more about it. Needless to say you'd never get bored there. It only increased the value of the home we'll never sell.

The kids were asleep. The baby didn't need my attention. All was well. My wife and I were enjoying the air conditioning, some cold drinks and music on vinyl using our new gramovox. Yes, we still listen to old records. There's a store downtown that still sells old records and vintage things. We have seemingly thousands of them I never really counted. It was great. The light was perfectly low, the music sounded awesome with our sound system. My head was nuzzled into her boob. Then the record ended and one of us had to get up to put a new one on.

She completely ruined our evening when she hovered over her star wars collection. Including her newest force awakens record.

Decided to check the air filter on my motorcycle. After over 32,000 km, I figured it was time. Yep, it was dirty and needs replacement. Went to the local dealership to get one.

FUCK. They don't have it in stock. Have to order it in. 3-5 business days which means likely Wednesday-Thursday next week.

OK. Go home Start putting everything back together. FUCK. Lost a screw. Could be worse but FUCK.

Everything is back together and I decide I need to fill the tank. Get to the gas station. Fill up. And WHAM -- fucking thunderstorm lets loose a fucking down pore.

I think I will stay in the rest of the afternoon and prep some tortilla bowls so I can make taco salad for supper.

What Jules said. Obviously, we don't know the issue either but you should tell somebody so you can have some support.

Thanks.

Wasn't good. Was "this was to be expected." And "here's what you need to do."

The best news I got was "we just don't know. It could happen right now, an hour, a year, fifty years from now. Or maybe it won't happen at all. You're in excellent health otherwise."  Like that'll help. :roll:

I have to work on my will. Make sure it's all in order and up to date. I'm scared out of my mind. I'm scared for my kids. My daughter knows something's wrong.


Do yourselves a favor and hug the person you love because apparently we just don't know if it'll be the last time.

I read an article the other day concerning how people don't know how to respond, when someone tells them truly terrible news about death or disease suffered by a friend.  I just read CG's post and fall in that category.  Wishing you calmness and clarity in the foreseeable future.  Prayers.

I now feel stupid saying that having my car break down in the middle of nowhere ruined my day yesterday.  I only bought it 5 days ago.  They say it is covered by warranty, but I had to leave it 300 miles from my house, and rent a car.  Long, tiring day.  And I will get to drive another 600 miles, to pick it up and bring it home, next week.  Ugh.

Nah, don't feel stupid. Life goes on.

It's just a reminder to never curse life, because before you know it it's over. I got reminded of that yesterday.

Thanks  :D

I know. Believe me I know.

Now I'm worried making all these preparations will actually make it happen.

Or as Guinan once said: When a man is convinced he's going to die tomorrow, he'll probably find a way to make it happen.

Yesterday, one of my children did something really sweet, so I shared it on social media with a hashtag that said #perfectson.  No sooner had I done that, then I get a text message from a former in-law berating me for allegedly "favoring" this child over my others, and suggesting that I was harming my children's self-esteem, and a bunch of other crap.

First, my kids aren't on my social media page.  Second, I didn't say *favorite* son, or *best* son.  All of my kids are perfect.  Third, WTF?  Finally, grandma, that's a good way to get blocked.

Turned a happy, sweet moment into an ugly one.  There's a reason I divorced your daughter.

Has anybody hear of PokemonGo?

I almost hit a kid this morning.   He walked across the street while looking at his phone.   I gave him a 'toot' with my horn and he looked up and waved in an "I'm sorry" sort of way.   

I got to work and told one of the guys here.     He said, "He was probably playing PokemonGo."

Okay, in the last half hour, we've had random cars driving through our lot.   Our yard supervisor has stopped them and asked them why they are on private property.    "Because you have Pokemon's all over the place."

One of our employees brother is a cop and kids have been coming to that police station for Pokestuff.

WTH, but I almost ran a kid over.   A little 10 year old at 6:30 in the morning.

Had a discussion with my boss over how to cover the projects we are committed to finishing. We have over 100 documents to write, re-write, and incorporate within our version control system. We have a a deadline do about half of these by the end of September. The rest are due by the end of April.

In the meantime we have the regular maintenance of the 1680 documents we currently maintain. To do all of this we need an additional 6 full time employees, and another 9 contract writers to meet the closer deadline of September.

I told my boss that we are now too late to effectively hire additional writers for that September deadline.

I have been informing our management for 4 years that with the mandate established by the Dodd-Frank act that we have to document ALL procedures. I have been ignored by senior management. I will have no compunction about informing a Federal auditor that the reason we don't have the required documentation is because senior management thought they didn't need to follow the law.

Stupid management tricks.

Houseflies in the office right now.    Where the heck did they all come from?    I swear, there must be 6 of them in here.   

I hate killing them because I look at them as a huge germ and get grossed out by them.    At home, I'll either suck them up the tube of the vacuum, or wait until they're at a window then open it. 

Some of the guys in the office are after them, though.   

I've got a clorox bleach wipes container on my desk.  If one lands, I'll wipe that spot clean.     My father taught me long ago what flies land on.

Conclusion as of 5:15 today- my maintenance man is a fuck-mook. Also I've decided if my air isn't functioning by noon, I'm going to shit on him until he is dead. I mean I'm going to speak with the manager yeah that's what I mean.

In the game that I play there is a staging area where you have to wait for people to form a team.  There are people from all over the world and you are able to converse with them if you wish, I rarely do.  However I do talk to the folks who are in my guild.  There are different tabs on toolbar for each chat.  Well anyways I had wrong tab on and was telling my guildmates about all the assholes in staging area.....so all those people saw what I said.......

Karma gets you everytime.....bad Becca for talking ugly about folks.

This is the point where you tell everyone that you walked away from your computer while logged in and (insert name here) posted a bunch of cap while pretending to be you. Alternately, you could claim your account was hacked. You gave your login info to someone that said they would level your character up for you.  ^-^

A few weeks ago I think I mentioned that I knocked my coffee over on my desk.

Well, today as I was leaving work in a hurry to get out of the office and on the road  through Detroit before the Tiger game ended, I stopped by my assistants desk and I knocked over her huge tumbler of iced tea.   She came walking in to her desk to find me mopping up her desk and picking wet papers.   

Clumsy.

Got into an argument with my mom.

"It's 109 degree's, must you look and act like a super model even in this shit? Can't you be hot and miserable like the rest of us as a show of solidarity?"

"No, baby girl, but I can be twice as hot in this heat."

We went shopping today and it took her a god damned hour to get glammed up. I took five minutes to throw on a I heart donuts shirt and pants and she looks like a hundred thousand bucks.  :roll:

Don't get me wrong, I love having a blazing hot mommy and the genetics she gave me, but sometimes I just want to throw dog shit on her and make her normal like the rest of us for once. She doesn't even fucking age like us mortals.


And then she wouldn't even let me have a cream filled chocolate doughnut with marshmallows. As if it would kill me but due to my health issue, as she put it, "If I see you put one crumb of crap like this in your body I'll muzzle you."  :emot_banghead:

As I was leaving work yesterday, I hit the print button on a Word doc.   It was 15 pages long.  

When I came in this morning, the printer had used every bit of paper in the cassette and I had multiple copies of the document scattered across my desk, on the chair and on my desk.    I had just reloaded the cassette about noon yesterday.  So about 500 pages of wasted paper.

Good thing I'm not a tree hugger because I would feel really guilty.

Guilty as charged.    My assistant told me about a week ago that if I needed anything in the supply room to tell her and she would get it.   I said, "No, if I'm walking by, I'll get it."   Well, I find out that others had requested it because every time I go in there I knock something off a shelf or make a mess.    :-[       But really, who puts a chinsy metal storage rack directly behind a door so that the door hits it when opening.  It wasn't like it was really my fault.

My supervisor is going on 73 years old. I ignore him most of the time. I kinda let him do whatever catches his fancy. I have told him that part of my job is to listen to his decisions and to stop him from doing stupid things. I back this up by always telling him why the idea/decision is stupid and what I would do different. In the end, I've told him that if he really wants to continue down that path, I would respect the decision. 90% of the time, he listens. I'm working on getting that to 95%.

I would agree except she said it playfully. And played on my love for them well.

Besides, they pointed out I have nothing else to do with the kids in school.

These two need to get a grip on life and really fast.

When they both sat me and the other women folk of the clan down and told us Summer was pregnant, everyone else didn't seem to mind. I'm the one that had to give them a lecture. They have no concept of raising a child. Just because they borrow mine on the weekends doesn't make them ready for parenthood. But since they're impatient they got someone to drop a load in a cup and my sister squirted inside Summer. I've already, secretly, decided I'm not helping them with the baby. I was a teen when I got knocked up, and my mom was incredible, but I learned my lesson the hard way. They need to learn it on their own. I'm not going to take responsibility for what they've done. I'll love the kid, but it's not my job to raise it. They decided they wanted to have a kid while they're still in college. Fine, have it, but it's time they do get a grip on life and learn the hard way that it's not easy. They are on their own. This mommy service is unavailable.

Of course they'll be calling me in the middle of the night when they can't get it to go to sleep.

I've taught my girls to keep their rooms clean. They make their own beds, except my 4 year old, keep it cleaned up and tidy. I do all the actual cleaning work of course. If they make a mess, I expect them to clean it up. Thanks to this they are all very clean and tidy.

They're awesome "big sisters" to my kids, but time to cover for them is about over. Time for them to grow up.

And hide their sex toys better because I found all of them. A whole drawer full. And why do they need so much baby oil?

Could be dislocated. I stubbed my baby toe many years ago. After being in a great deal of pain for 3 hours, I went to emergency, got the toe x-rayed and then the doctor pulled on it to re-locate it. Walked funny for a few days wearing sandals.

Finding out that the Girl (Ashley is her name) I was writing to in Prison (Albion Correctional Facility) was actually scamming me! Found out from my Cousin that the Girl (Amber is her name) he was writing to, in the same Prison as my Girl, was also scamming him and she admitted today that my Girl, her roommate in the Prison (they actually live in Dorms and not in a typical Prison cell) was scamming me the whole time too!. Ashley had been scamming me for 3 months now, Amber was scamming my Cousin for over a year!

Amber told my Cousin, that Ashley was STILL hooked on Drugs (after telling me back in May she had been cleaned for 2 years), she had been making fun of how I look (I am overweight, but she had told me she was hoping that I would loose weight (which I was) so I'd look good for her, YEAH RIGHT!), also said that she HATED my personality (she used to just laugh at my jokes when deep down she hated my funny sense of humor, I also can be very down to Earth too!), and that she was just using me to get Food, Gifts and Money.

I met her only twice, but the last time I saw her at the Prison, when she came back from the Bathroom I noticed her face was full of disdain for me being there, but when I confronted her about it, she said she was just tired. She even went as far as to talk about me behind my back, but when I questioned her about it she blamed her friend, Amber saying SHE was the one who was talking about me and blamed her about it!

Her Parents have basically disowned her, she said to me they really want nothing to do with her, they have told her she made her own bed now she must lie in it. Hope she will love it when she learns I contacted her Father and told him she's still addicted to Drugs and was just using me. She also lost custody of her Daughter because of her Crimes, which I believe has caused friction between her and her Parents.

My Cousin also told me that his ex Amber said that her and Ashley have been fighting cause Ashley has been stealing her stuff and doing Drugs, so it looks like there is a HUGE war going on now between both roommates.

My Cousin said to them that, Amber contacted him through a 3rd party phone line from the Prison to one of her friend's phones to talk to him, they told him that she may end up loosing her Phone privileges cause she did that, it's not allowed.

He mentioned about me giving Ashley $98 recently for her Classes (they try to teach the Women in the Prison some skills they can use when they get out) and he was informed that their Classes are FREE and yes, I was scammed out of $98.00, I assume that it was probably for her Drugs instead.

All I want to do now is to try to forget about this happening to me and move on, now I will be more cautious about who I give my heart out to next time, if there ever IS a next time.

Take it from me, there are those whom you can trust. Just keep looking. I've had my heart ripped, torn, and shredded, then dragged through broken glass and salt by someone like this.

Don't give up.

Thanks, Katiebee, I can only imagine that both Girls got a rude awaking, so to speak, after my Cousin put in the Complaint. Doing some research recently I found out that something like this can hurt their chances for Parole. Ashley especially if found with Drugs in her system.

A week, injured, dying, rotten smelling, stray dog. He just came into my room, while the door was open, just an hour ago. Couldn't do anything for him. He will barely survive a day or two. Tried calling animal rescue centre, but its late in night, so they didnt pick the phone. Couldn't even shoo him away. Tried pushing him with the broom but he cried. I am not strong to hit him after that. Finally poured some drops of water over him to get him away. And its raining out here. But what could I do? Feeling so helpless, and guilty.

Update on the dog, he was actually called Breezer, found dead today. Apparently just few minutes before the vet reached him. Still remember the sad painful look on his face from yesterday. Miracles never happens. Never will. Its all worthless anyways.

My commute into work.   Tanker fire shut down the expressway.   Usually a 45 minute commute, took me 2 hours.    The driver of the tanker was safe, so that is good.

My boss used to question my early arrival at work. Then I explained I give myself time to get around traffic issues. The only way traffic gets me is if I am committed to crossing the river over a specific bridge and it gets backed up after I made my commitment.

I, along with many thousands of people who have lived in Minnesota for a long time, find ourselves with heavy hearts along with some sense of relief.  An 11 year old boy, Jacob Wetterling, who was snached by a sick fuck nearly 30 years ago will be returned to his family...albeit his remains.

His story has been kept alive by his family, who also founded a foundation in Jacob's name to help prevent child abductions and support other families that have had to face this horror.

The case was alway open, but got an extensive review last year.  That led to the arrest of a "person on interest" in October.  His collection of neatly labeled child porn was found in his home.  His DNA was matched with a sweatshirt of a young boy who was attacked just a few months before Jacob's.

His family never gave up hope, plus continued to work to prevent this happening to others.  Patty Wetterling, the mother, gave key testimony before congress leading to passage of the bill that now requires sex offenders to be registered.
Now what ever spark she held that she'd see her son again has been snuffed out.  I never saw much hope, yet today's news struck me like it just happened yesterday.  We've lived with this story for so long.  It's a relief it's ended, yet the sadness is so great.  I'm sure I'm not alone feeling this way.

After sitting in custody for 11 months the killer/rapist led authorities to the remains.  What makes me even sicker is wondering what kind of deal they offered the puke to make him give in and admit his guilt.  Guess we'll have to live with this some more as his case is drawn out.

There would be nothing on this world, or beyond from keeping me from slaughtering that son of a bitch if it was one of my kids.

At least he can rest in peace and this garbage will, hopefully, die never knowing freedom ever again. But can you believe he'll actually be treated better than our poor, the homeless and veterans? He'll get food and shelter for the rest of his miserable, worthless life.

Well they wouldn't have found him without the guy. Pretty sure the family wanted closure more than anything. Plus considering the civil commitment he isn't likely to ever get out anyway.

This is for yesterday.

I went to my nieces classroom and school orientation last night.     There are a group of parents that I had become sort of friends with when helping out in the classroom last school year and I had run into them at various times over the past 6 months because of sleepovers or swim parties.

So I get a call on Sunday night from one of the women I'm closest to that was at a birthday party last weekend that my niece was at, she was giving me notice of what happened.   My niece was asked by one of the many moms at the party how her dad was, they all know of his condition.   She gave the standard 7 year old answer ----"good".    Then they asked about Aunt Julie.   My niece answered, "She's very good and very much in love.   And she got a very pretty ring too."
All the moms in attendance ears perked up at that.   Then one of the moms asked, "Do you mean an engagement ring?"     My niece answered, "It's a ring that says she loves her."   
Wanting clarification, she was asked, "You mean, he loves her."   My niece said, "No, Aunt Julie got it from her girlfriend.  They're in love.  They even have sleepovers."
I wasn't hiding it, but the grapevine just lit up at that statement.   The mom telling me what happened said a few of the moms actually got their phones out and started texting.     

So, on to last night at curriculum night at the school.  I could feel the eyes on me.   A lot of curious looks.    A few unapproving looks from some women.   Some dads I've never spoken with came up and introduced themselves -------like why?  You never took the time before, but now you want to know me so you can what, watch?  I was thinking wtf.    I even watched as a one of the husbands walked back to wifey.   A scornful look at him then a glance at me. 

As the teacher was going over the curriculum, I felt just felt eyes on me.  It's not a small school, but the 1 square mile neighborhood is close knit and everybody knows everybody, and most of them are church goers.   I just felt out of my element and wanted to strangle someone.    So, a very unpleasant evening to say the least.   

And I thought it was okay to be with someone of the same sex.   I thought my mom would be my biggest obstacle.   

But, it's out there now, so move on, right?   I was never trying to hide anything, there was no reason for me to send out a newsletter announcing it, right?    So now I'm the talk of the neighborhood it seems.    I'm not fine with what happened but I'll get over it.   But then, after I got home I started thinking about my niece.   I swear to god, if this affects her and her friendships one bit because a mom says something to her little susie that she can't play with my niece or something like that, I will f*#%ing take someone's kneecaps out.   

I've decided to plan an end of the summer pool party for next weekend to see what the reception is.   I will make sure my friend is there, not as moral support, but to show I'm not ashamed.     
There will be my old softball bat nearby if I need to use it.   Hmm, I should probably also have a supply of crutches in case anybody needs help getting back to their car.

Batter up!

Okay.  Done venting.

This is for yesterday.

I went to my nieces classroom and school orientation last night.     There are a group of parents that I had become sort of friends with when helping out in the classroom last school year and I had run into them at various times over the past 6 months because of sleepovers or swim parties.

So I get a call on Sunday night from one of the women I'm closest to that was at a birthday party last weekend that my niece was at, she was giving me notice of what happened.   My niece was asked by one of the many moms at the party how her dad was, they all know of his condition.   She gave the standard 7 year old answer ----"good".    Then they asked about Aunt Julie.   My niece answered, "She's very good and very much in love.   And she got a very pretty ring too."
All the moms in attendance ears perked up at that.   Then one of the moms asked, "Do you mean an engagement ring?"     My niece answered, "It's a ring that says she loves her."  
Wanting clarification, she was asked, "You mean, he loves her."   My niece said, "No, Aunt Julie got it from her girlfriend.  They're in love.  They even have sleepovers."
I wasn't hiding it, but the grapevine just lit up at that statement.   The mom telling me what happened said a few of the moms actually got their phones out and started texting.    

So, on to last night at curriculum night at the school.  I could feel the eyes on me.   A lot of curious looks.    A few unapproving looks from some women.   Some dads I've never spoken with came up and introduced themselves -------like why?  You never took the time before, but now you want to know me so you can what, watch?  I was thinking wtf.    I even watched as a one of the husbands walked back to wifey.   A scornful look at him then a glance at me.  

As the teacher was going over the curriculum, I felt just felt eyes on me.  It's not a small school, but the 1 square mile neighborhood is close knit and everybody knows everybody, and most of them are church goers.   I just felt out of my element and wanted to strangle someone.    So, a very unpleasant evening to say the least.  

And I thought it was okay to be with someone of the same sex.   I thought my mom would be my biggest obstacle.    

But, it's out there now, so move on, right?   I was never trying to hide anything, there was no reason for me to send out a newsletter announcing it, right?    So now I'm the talk of the neighborhood it seems.    I'm not fine with what happened but I'll get over it.   But then, after I got home I started thinking about my niece.   I swear to god, if this affects her and her friendships one bit because a mom says something to her little susie that she can't play with my niece or something like that, I will f*#%ing take someone's kneecaps out.  

I've decided to plan an end of the summer pool party for next weekend to see what the reception is.   I will make sure my friend is there, not as moral support, but to show I'm not ashamed.    
There will be my old softball bat nearby if I need to use it.   Hmm, I should probably also have a supply of crutches in case anybody needs help getting back to their car.

Batter up!

Okay.  Done venting.

:),
Jules


I've heard the whispers myself from people that I thought were my friends.
The biggest "hurt" that I ever got was at a horse show when two women were talking about me and one told the other "Don't let your daughter near her (me) she's a Lesbian"..  Like what..?? Did she think I was going to convert her 14 year old daughter into a Lesbian. People can be both stupid and cruel at the same time.
And you happen to be right, You don't need to send out a news letter nor are you obligated to actually having to tell anybody. But you are doing the right thing with the pool party, now lets see who really is your friend, I hope for your niece's sake sake it all goes well and lots of kids show up (because in reality, the kids could not give a damn what you are, it's the parents that will screw it all up (for the kids)).

Love,
Liz

I've always cared about the opinions of other concerning myself.       I started to say it is one of my faults, but I shouldn't view it as that.      In this particular matter, I really don't care.   

I've never judged anyone for their sexual preference, so if they want to be that type of person, I'm not going to change their mind.  F-them.   

It is my niece that I'm concerned about.   Which I think to myself, they're adults and they wouldn't do something intentionally or not intentionally to affect a 7 year old girl, but then I think, well if little Susie can't have a sleepover with my niece because of me, then it affects my niece.   

Putting on my batting glove,
Jules

One of my kitties is dying.  I think she drank anti-freeze because all the symptoms are that of kidney failure.

Her name is Priscilla.  She came to us as a feral from the humane society.  They were going to have to put her down as unadoptable, but were looking for a farm or similar situation for her.  I told them that I managed a feral cat colony and I could try to integrate her into the colony if they had no other alternatives.  So she came to us.

It turned out she was not feral, just very afraid.  She moved into the house and soon became a very loving kitty.  But she found an escape route out of the cat run and came and went as she pleased.

I am on watch, waiting for her last breath.

Go in peace little kitty.

I have no doubt she would.  You have a special dog.

When I was born we had a Siamese cat.  She had lost a litter of kittens and adopted me as her own.  When non family members would approach my crib she would growl and hiss at them.

I've always had cats and one very special dog. She was such a good dog that I tried twice more with dogs and failed.  I think I'll stick with cats, at least for now.

We have a family of Hawks on the farm and they patrol every night.
(they have lived above the barn for many years).
Anyway, one time we had a mom cat with kittens, needless to say the Hawk got the kittens when they ventured out to far from the barn.
Now, No Cats.

Hey you, just shush!   :-*




What ruined my day today....   
Listening to the radio on the way to work.    In the metro Detroit area, a man suffocated his 4 and 7 year old children, then shot his 17 and 19 year olds execution style.  He stabbed and shot his wife.   Then he called 911.   
The 4 children have passed, the mother of the children is in critical condition.
So so sad.

It was such a Gong Show at the plant this past week that I thought Chuck Barris was going to jump out at any moment. At one point I had 4 people in front of me demanding my attention, critical info being passed over the radio and the effin' boss calling on the phone asking me to measure something.

We average 150-160 people on site during the day on weekdays. Monday-Wednesday we had about 240 people working on a couple of large projects (power pole replacements, electrical sub-station commissioning) and production unit maintenance shutdown.

As confusing as it seemed to be, it is quite amazing that things were getting done. The power pole work and the sub-station commissioning should be done today. The maintenance work is 4 or 5 days behind schedule due to upper management not listening to the operators who said that it would take 14 days to do something. Despite the warning about 14 days, they scheduled 10 for the work. And THEN, something went sideways adding a day.

I've decided to plan an end of the summer pool party for next weekend to see what the reception is.   I will make sure my friend is there, not as moral support, but to show I'm not ashamed.    
There will be my old softball bat nearby if I need to use it.   Hmm, I should probably also have a supply of crutches in case anybody needs help getting back to their car.


Weather is too cold for a swim party (I actually typed 'swing party' first).   Having a party & sleepover starting at 6:00pm.    All her friends are coming, except one that is going to a family event.   Some of the moms are staying so, all seems cool.   Maybe I overreacted.....ME?  Noooooo.   Never.

S'more making kits ready.   Cider and donuts too.

Been on crutches all day - HATE them.   And again tomorrow and Thurs.   Just glad it is not my pedal foot so I can drive.    I'm claustrophobic and hate having this Ace bandage wrap.

Now, instead of running, I'm sitting eating ice cream.   :)   I think I like eating ice cream better than running.

It's tire rotation day. Summer tires off. Winter tires on. I really don't mind doing this. I just wish I had a better jack than what is in the trunk of the car. My tire store will do it for nothing except a wasted day.

Went to pick up some more pumpkins for carving, and there was this little kid who needed to get his ass kicked. He was probably about 7 running around screaming cuss words while his idiot mother had her phone glued to her fucking head. I had to cover the babies ears. Store security did fuck all about it.

Sounds like a good plot for a hot story.

_____

The hot young, yet ruggedly handsome mechanic called her into the back office. She followed him. He held the door open for her, then closed it after she walked in.

 He said, "I don't usually do this kind of thing, but..."

He smiled slightly afraid at what her reaction would be, but he just had to do it.

"I saw the way you were watching me, and I was wondering if you would be interested in a better deal on your car repairs.

She smiled, feeling a little bit nervous, yet curious at what exactly he was proposing."

That's hot.    ;D

Serious and near total morale failure. Self-doubt, worry, self-inflicted emotional distress.

Don't you hate it when your imagination exercises in the wrong direction?

I do. I feel like I have a white hot knife stuck between my breasts. Anxiety attack?

Or just a shitty life experience?

There is something to be said to being unimaginative and dull. All I know is that I feel horrible right now and my arms ache for not having a loved one within their embrace.

What the hell am I doing baring my heart and soul in a sex site for? Am I stupid? Deficient in capability? Foolish?

Electrons offer no comfort, the void of the ether is cold and lifeless. I feel so alone, abandoned even by myself. Why do the darkest thoughts always arrive in the small hours of the night when the world is cold, sightless, and unloving?

My Local Post Office and Mail Carrier. I was supposed to have gotten a new Cell Phone yesterday in the mail (delivery date was for Yesterday, of course), but my stupid Mail Carrier decides NOT to deliver it, but to just simply take it back to the Main Post Office. I saw early this Morning on the USPS Website when I tracked the number again before going to Work that it was "Available for Pick up" at the Post Office, so I go there at 9 am to explain what had happened.

The Lady who waited on me said it was sent back out for redelivery for today! I was like "WTF?!" I said to her, "I hope it does get delivered to me, because if it's not I am coming back to speak with a Supervisor!" I also told her that this Mail Carrier all she does is fail to deliver my packages, letters I get, but packages no! I also have a Family Member who lives on another Street that this same Mail Carrier delivers the Mail on and he has seen her too busy talking on her Blue tooth device or talking to the Neighbors on his street instead of delivering the Mail!

Today was a productive day. I got review approval to publish two documents today and two PDF forms integral to their processes. Tiring, but satisfying. Updated another internal customer with their project and did more work on completing it. A total of 4 documents I worked on today.

My boss loves me, my co-workers appreciate me, and my customers think I walk on water and the water I don't walk on I turn into wine.

So what ruined my day? Personal anxiety. Relationship fears. A sour stomach, a racing heart, and a mind that won't fucking well leave well enough alone.

Yea, potential bad news drifted across the event horizon and I feel like grub in a chicken yard.

Phone call from brother in laws sister last night.     She and her family have decided to come to Michigan for Thanksgiving.  They'll be here tomorrow night.

Gee, thanks for the advance notice.    At least she's staying at her dads house.

So you would think 4 more seats at the dinner table is not big deal, right.    No, because she's coming, the other brother wants to come with his family.   So that's 5 additional.   Or 9 more total.   I was already at 10.

I shouldn't be so bitter about it, but have been having some issues with this woman.  Last time we were face to face, it didn't go so well.    Her kids and husband are nice.    

Bitch just better help with the dinner cleanup though.   She's a spoiled little princess back in California.

Last thing I expect at 8:30 AM is a phone call from my wife. She was handed her lay off notice from the company she works for. Her last day is Friday. A victim of the economic downturn that has been affecting many in Alberta for the past 3 years (started when the price of oil cratered). Her employer is not an oil producing/exploration company. Rather they make camp/construction trailers. Sales have cratered and despite their best efforts to hang in there, things are not looking good. I can honestly say that this lay off is not unexpected. In fact, we were expecting it a while ago.


Bright side, my wife has never been unemployed for long and we have the equivalent of 6 months of her salary in the bank. And, my job is pretty rock solid. The company I am contracted to is a multi-national petro-chemical that makes plastic.

And, the Wicked Witch from the West (my brother in laws sister) is arriving in about 4 hours.   ugh   They're stopping here before going to her dad's house.    She just misses her brother so much.   Yeah, then why don't you facetime or call like I've been suggesting for the last few months.

Was having a bad day at work.   I was actually so irritated I was shaking at one point.   Got a call from home I didn't need.   I just shut the door and started crying.   Too much pressure sometimes.    Just super emotional.

I had typed a bunch more but deleted it.    Everybody has enough of their own shit going on in life, you don't need to hear mine.  

Oh, as I was crying, my co-worker comes in and tells me someone backed into my car.   And I didn't really care.

I'm totally fine now.      My bumper is not.  

I would go home and have a drink or four, but have a school thing for my niece.   And my friend is getting back from her visit with her parents, hopefully early.

It's just awful.  I broke down and had a good cry.  Words are inadequate.  There's nothing that can be said to sooth the raw emotions laid bare by this.  Devastating.

Virtual man hug sent your way, Toe

Had a very old and close friend of the family pass away yesterday. I had known her my whole life. She was one of my grandmother's best friends. She lived to be 98 years old, 10 years longer than my grandma. It's so hard to say goodbye to someone you have loved all your life, but it was a privilege just knowing her. She was a beautiful loving woman and I will never forget her.  :'(

That's sad, so sending many sympathies... 98 is a good age... sounds like you really loved her... best advice is always to remember the good times you had together...

I know this is from 4 days ago. But I have to ask -- do Detroit drivers think they live in Vancouver when it snows?


As for today -- woke up yesterday with a sore throat. It continues today. Apparently I chased my wife out of bed last night with my snoring (doesn't happen unless I have a head cold). On a 1-10 feel-like-crap scale, I'm probably at a 6 right now.

Hope you feel better.

Yes, snow on the ground and the speed limit means nothing.  If it's a four wheel vehicle, they think they are the kings of the road.       

Headlines for....
......Thursday - Police ID third victim from last week's 53-vehicle pileup  (3 dead, 11 injured)

......then Saturday - 40-car pileup closes NB I-75 at Dixie Highway, 'gawkers' crash on SB 75 (37 injured)


We got 10 inches yesterday.   I was expecting a mess this morning, but main roads were fine............not good enough to go 75 or 80 mph, but some dumb dumbs still were.     I was in the cautious 45-55 mph lane to the far right.

What ruined my day today................
I was taking the garbage out this morning at 5:30.   The garage door across the street opens so I know Carl is probably taking his garbage out.      I hide behind my garbage cans and make a snowball.    After he placed his garbage and was walking back up his driveway, I ran halfway into the street so I was closer and threw the snowball at him.    I missed.   My arm immediately hurt.    That was about 3 hours ago and it's hurting more as the morning is going on.

I got a notification from the bank that there had been a refused charge on my credit card.  Someone had managed to get both the CC number and the security code, but I guess they didn't have my zip code, so the web transaction was DENIED.  Now I have to change credit cards and change the few repetitive charges that I hit it with (phone, water, and a couple of others), since I've been compromised.

Our eldest had his first drink-til-you puke session with his mates last night.

Unfortunately, he waited to do the puking until he got home.

Sent barefoot to investigate strange noises in the wee small hours, I found him kneeling next to a broken toilet in a pool of vomit, which I stood in.

Even worse, he had been drinking snakebite and black. That's pints of 1/2 lager, 1/2 cider, & a dash of blackcurrant cordial. Imagine the smell.

Still, he wasn't allowed to stagger off to bed until he had mopped up the worst of the mess and put his clothes in the washing machine, and he spent his hangover cleaning the floor properly and repairing the toilet, so not all bad...

What ruined my day.......    The last 3 days in Florida, something chewed on my ankle.   omg the bug bites.   Our hostess said it was likely no see ums, and I didn't see 'em.    At least 30 bites on the top of my feet and around my ankles.    So itchy.   So irritating. 
You have to wear full cover on your feet, like running shoes and socks. And Deet!

Thank you Katie and Toe.   :)

I've been to Florida a million times and this never happened.   I'm the only person that got bit, too.     We used the same sunscreen, so it wasn't a certain scent.   Just ARGHH! so itchy.   Cortisone helping a little, but it just doesn't do the trick.   Now, this morning I have 3 bites on my forearm that just appeared.    I swear they weren't there last night.

:(,
Jules

My 4 year old basically breaks down in tears when those ASPCA commercials come on. I know it's awful seeing those animals suffering, but mommy already donates to it every month. I can't afford to up my donation every time the commercial comes on.  :roll:

My love actually laughs at these monetary appeals, because she says Americans know *nothing* about animal suffering.  "We have mangy flea bitten animals wandering about in  public parks, with oozing sores and missing or mangled limbs.  I think most Americans would faint to see what we deal with daily."

8 hours at work on my day off today. OK, it is paid out at time and a half. But FUCK, I really didn't want to get up at 5 this morning.

The boss went to the States for Christmas and was supposed to be back today. However, he got stuck in Toronto because of weather. Nobody who is qualified was able to fill in so, I got the call at 4:30 PM yesterday.

Better to take out a squirrel than something else. Waaaaay back in the day, I was car-pooling with a bunch of guys from work. Came to an intersection and saw a duck laying on the road with his neck broken. It was still alive. I didn't have time to properly finish the duck off properly so I drove over its head to take it out of its misery.  Boy did I not live that down for quite a while.

The only thing that has ruined my day recently was the Canadian U-20 Men's Hockey team losing twice to the Americans. But that's hockey.

What ruined my day (really the last two days)?

I've been without sleep for about 65 hours now - ever since I started feeling really bad about being a jerk to a good friend in 1408. I know, if there is a place to be a jerk, it's 1408, but that doesn't mean one MUST be a jerk.

I made my apology, so I'm pretty sure I'll be able to sleep tonight.

Thank you.   I actually have a neti pot.   Haven't used it in years.    Was always warm water with the salt (?), I think.    Never heard of apple cider vinegar.       My doctor warned me against it years ago, but I never threw it away.


Title: Re: What RUINED your day today?
Post by: Fish on January 09, 2017, 01:34:36 AM
The only risk with a neti pot is that you might get used to it and overuse - if you overuse, you can really dry out your sinuses to the point of constant nosebleeds. I know from experience.


Title: Re: What RUINED your day today?
Post by: MintJulie on January 09, 2017, 01:40:17 AM
Similar to what my doctor said Fish.

I used to use a nasal spray when stuffed up.    Became addicted.   Not like OMG I GOTTA HAVE IT.    My body just became dependent on it.    My nose just wouldn't clear up on it's own.    My sinuses didn't do the work because the spray would.     

Funny because my sister was telling her husband about it and said, "She's such and idiot."   He said, "I did the same thing in h.s."

I fucked up big time with my 4 year old today.

I was watching a video on youtube, and she hopped up on my lap. The woman in the video, I kid you not, looks like my 4 year old but only much older of course. Same hair. Same mouth and smile. Same god damn fucking adorable cleft chin.  ;D

She said "she looks just like me, mommy!"

And then I said the worst fucking thing I could ever say to her. "Maybe she's your real mommy."  :emot_weird:

Yes, she is adopted. And I did not say it in a mean way. The woman is beautiful, and so is she. The retarded blonde was strong with me today.

She hopped off my lap and has not spoken to me since. At dinner she wouldn't even look at me and didn't want to eat her favorite thing: My wife's spaghetti.

Major fuck up. Major, major fuck up. So fucking stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My commute was twice as long as usual.      Have I even mentioned we have moronic drivers here in Detroit.

Arrived safely.  All that matters.   Everybody is trickling in late.

A little good news, my cold seems almost gone.   I feel a whole lot better.

CG can't really add much that hasn't already been said. Save that I to will add my wishes, and hopes that the situation resolves, and gets better.
As for what ruined my day. My best friend's Mother just passed this morning. I am trying to be there for them, but I am finding myself dealing with returning emotions from my own mother's passing. For me this happened a little over a year ago, but now I am dealing with emotions again as if had just happened. Part of me feels like a selfish ass for this, and that makes me feel even worse.
So yeah I am having a banner day for feeling like crap.

It took a lot of REAL mommy daughter talk and hugs but she forgave me. She was mad at the person who didn't want her but should have been the one person in the world who did.

I've raised her since diapers. Rubbed her tummy when it hurt, all night if I had to so she could sleep. I read stories to her every night. Whoever made her meant her for me. She's my daughter whether biologically or not and I'll never ever give her up. She calls me mommy because I am.

Speaking with a mom at the school last night.  
Just learned the price of girl scout cookies went up.  

So, $4.00 for a box now.     The troop gets less than $0.64 per box.   Baking, transport and the GS org take the rest.

If you happen to come across some girls selling and you don't even want any, but feel you want to support their troop, just give them $1.00.    They'll come out ahead and you won't feel guilty eating 16 cookies at 400 calories each.

Few days ago it was black screening, then a couple days of nothing fucking up. Now I have to spend even more money for some dork to tell me there's nothing wrong with it.

$2000.  :roll:

You got pregnant having sex during your period? You must have a very short menstral cycle.

You do know on the rag is kind of a slang term, right? You realize that? I'm sure ya do.

You do realize that when you are menstrating, during your menatral cycle, your "period", you are "on the rag", and during that period your uterus is shedding cells, and preparing to be receptive for your eggs.

During that, you are not fertile. If you have a short cycle, or have sex at the end it is possible, though highly unlikely that you you can become pregnant.

I apologize. I need to remember to explain absolutely everything so you don't misunderstand. From now on when I directly reply to you I'll provide a definition for every word I type to you.

A lady at the gas station at the pump over from me.    She came up to me and started yelling to me about not playing her grand daughter enough.    (I had no clue what she was talking about).   "It's a recreational basketball league and the girls should all get equal playing time."    
I said, "I'm confused...."   She cut me off and said "there is no excuse for your actions.   And the way you march up and down the sidelines like you think you're a professional and the game means something.   I'm embarrassed for you."    Then she turned her head and spit.
Then she called me the C word.    YES! the C word.    A 60 year old grandma.

She wasn't hearing anything I said, so I let her leave without responding. 

I guess I have a lookalike that coaches a basketball team in my city.     Sheesh

Just a head cold or something knocking me out of whack.   My equilibrium is off too.

In the past 48 hours, I've 'modified' a post instead of 'quoting' it.   I've used 'hear' instead of 'here'.    'There' instead of 'their'.      'Though' instead of 'thought'.   'to' instead of 'too'.

I'm not really an idiot, I just play one on the internet.


I also misplaced my carkey at the house.   Where did I find it?  In the bathroom drawer where my toothbrush is.    Why?  Because it was a single key that I accidentally carried in with me in my front pocket, and I thought, "oh, I'll put it in my toothbrush drawer and will see it in the morning when I brush my teeth"   all because I was too lazy to go back and hang it on the hook at the backdoor.       Well, my deodorant had covered it and when I went to leave this morning it took me 5 minutes to figure out where it was.    I never forget stuff like that.

Editing a procedure that is written so poorly, I have to question whether the writer knows and understands the procedure. What should have been a 4 hour task is turning into a week's worth of work.

And then they have to review it. It isn't going to be pretty.

You know, there is a reason they have a paper shredder in your office, you might consider using it and having the writer re-write the procedure so it appears to be "semi-comprehensible" to the normal average person.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. The reason they have such a high opinion of my worth at work is that I take crap and turn it into gold.

PS: Don't ask about "Plan C" it's far more nastier and requires a pickup truck to drag him behind for about 30 miles.

Taking written crap and turning it into written gold. I know what you mean. It took me 2 1/2 years but I finally got our standard procedures at work re-done. I started about 5 months after I started working there suggesting spelling and obvious changes to some procedures. About a year later, I did the same thing -- small changes. This year, I got tired of looking at the same shit repeated 3-4 times. The boss told me if I didn't like it, rewrite it. So I did. Cut the size down by 30%.

You will conquer.

I have had to adopt the Klingon Tech writer Creed.

 
Klingon Technical Writers
The top 15 things likely to be overheard if you had Klingon technical
writers working for you:
15) Certification?! Having your hot blood dripping from my glistening blade
is all the certification I need!
14) I will return to the homeworld and my documentation will arise
triumphant in the STC Documentation Gauntlet, leaving all others drowning in
their own dangling modifiers. It will be glorious!!
13) By not returning my review copies by the agreed deadline is a
declaration of war. Indeed, it is a good day to die.
12) These specifications are for the weak and timid!!
11) This version of Word is a piece of GAGH! I need the latest version of
Framemaker if I am to do battle with this manual.
10) You cannot really appreciate Dilbert unless you've read it in the
original Klingon.
9) Indentation?! I will show you how to indent when I indent your skull!
8 ) What is this talk of "drafts"? Klingons do not make document "drafts".
Our documents escape, leaving a bloody trail of SMEs in its wake!
7) Use of passive voice is for the weak. They will not survive.
6) Proofreading? Klingons do not proofread. Our documents are purified with
pain-sticks which cleanses them of impurities and weakness.
5) I have challenged the entire Marketing team to a Bat-Leh contest! They
will not concern us again.
4) A TRUE Klingon warrior riddles his document with bullets, leaving it to
beg for mercy.
3) By changing the layout of my manual, you have challenged the honor of my
family. Prepare to die!
2) You question the worthiness of my grammar? I should kill you where you
stand!
1) Our users will know fear and cower before our suite of manuals and online
help! Ship it! Ship it and let them flee like the dogs they are!

I sympathise. When I was a grad student, a certain professor who was not an English speaker by birth had me proofreading all the papers she was submitting to journals and conferences. If my area of research had been even remotely close to hers it would have been much easier, but given the language gap and the fact that I had never researched her area it was a fucking nightmare. I did get free food and beer though so it wasn't all bad I suppose.

My ruined day was yesterday, but it's spilling over into today.

My little sister and I had a falling out. She's acting like a brat. She would rather wallow in self pity rather than accept the help several family members are trying to give her. It gets her more attention to play the wounded, misunderstood, victim teenager than getting herself some actual help does.

I am one of (if not) the only people who really understands what's going on with her as she is dealing with all the things I dealt with at her age and continue to deal with. I've tried reaching out to her and she ignored me. I've passed messages along to her using other family members, and she ignored me. So last night I had enough and I called her out on her bullshit and now she's blocked me because she's a fucking snowflake child who wants to say whatever she wants without opposition.

Something she doesn't realize is I am the ONLY person who is somewhat open to the relationship she (a 17 year old) has with a 21 year old baby daddy of two. She burned her bridge with the only person who was willing to fight the family on her side.

FUCKING STUPID BRAT!!!!

*Sighs heavily* There, I feel a little better now.

Started last night and ended (kinda) today.......
Stephanie came over to spend the night with me (a good thing).
We were on the couch under a blanket making out (okay..!! doing other things as well). Anyway all of a sudden she's looking at me really weird and I'm like "what"?? and freaking out, all of a sudden she reaches over to me and touches my hair pulling a few strands to the side and smiles (kinda evil like) and then says "OMG, you have gray hair"....
Well, that's all it took......shot out from the couch and into the bathroom to see if I had gray hair, OMG..!!!! I DO.......
Steph is laughing and smiling and I'm not...!!
We ended up in bed for the night, Steph spent most of the night giggling at me, while I was trying to check out the rest of my head for gray hair.....
Next (this) Morning.......Mom is over for breakfast......and does the exact same thing.....she's looking at me really weird (it's like a repeat of last night).....only mom gets really close (like right in my face) and suddenly announces to the world....."Lizzie, You Have Gray Hair".......OMFG...!!!! Thank You very Much....!!!
You are only the second person in the room to notice it...!!!!

Plumber said he's be here between 10 am and 2 pm.  Appointment confirmed.  Wait all day then called back at two.  "Oh I'm sorry, we called to confirm you were at home.  We probably can't get there today now."  I checked the caller I.D.  I called them less than an hour after that phone call.  Totally pissed right now.

A phone call late last night from my niece.   She's away at college.   Her and her boyfriend broke up.    We were on the phone from midnight until 2am.     My friend and I are going out there now (leaving in 1/2 hour).   We had nothing going on anyways and it was my friends suggestion we go.    4 hours each way.   I hate driving. 
 
So what to tell my niece?   She's asking her 42 year old aunt unmarried aunt for relationship advise, an aunt who was shit on by every guy she ever dated.    I'm kind of okay with the break up because he has been shitting on her and taking advantage of her for the 2 years they've been dating.   We'll do lunch and what ever else she is up for.   

So, I'll be off line all day as I am heading to the west side of Michigan.

Try feeding them "Corned Beef Hash with a Fried Egg on top"......That and Spam, were my dad's favorite breakfast food. (I think it was a holdover from his military days). The first time I tried the Corn Beef Hash I gagged (but I actually managed to swallow it). When dad asked me how was it, I just nodded my head and looked at my mom and whispered "this stuff taste like salty shit". dad as not impressed at all.

Had a detailed email from friends we'd meet every year in Mexico.  We won't be going anymore.  Thought I'd accepted it, but hearing about their first couple days I really got "Z"sick for the place.  Lots of memories and pictures from over 25 years of visiting the same place.

Wife had a bout with suffering "mini" strokes and had one down there last year.  Learning there was no medical care for her for that, she's afraid to go back.

Now we're visiting places closer to home and planning a big trip to the Black Hills in May with 30 other people from our camera club.  Life goes on. :D

Yes, the Mexico episode was the last one.  Still the lack of medical care has scared her off.  Maybe someday she'll feel better about it.

Kids refused to eat my chili Mac cheese with a fried egg on top for breakfast.  "Tastes like ass."  Fuckers.  And how do you know what ass tastes like anyhow?

Try feeding them "Corned Beef Hash with a Fried Egg on top"......That and Spam, were my dad's favorite breakfast food. (I think it was a holdover from his military days). The first time I tried the Corn Beef Hash I gagged (but I actually managed to swallow it). When dad asked me how was it, I just nodded my head and looked at my mom and whispered "this stuff taste like salty shit". dad as not impressed at all.

Love,

Our parents and grandparents all survived the Great Depression and WWII.  They knew want.  And hunger.  They did not put leftovers in the garbage.  "Waste not, want not."  So I watched two grandmothers work magic all week with a Sunday roast, then stroganoff, then stew, then hash, and finally chipped beef, the lowly "shit on a shingle."

We didn't dare complain.  It just wasn't done.

So today, I had had some left over chili, and left over Mac and cheese.  Mixed them together, with left over Budweiser, and heated to 180°.  Meanwhile fried eggs.  You got your chili mac, a layer of melted cheddar, egg and Tabasco on top.  Not gourmet, but filling, and a good start.

My kids all want Cordon Bleu.  I'm taking my son out for dinner to his favorite restaurant for Birthday this week.  His favorite escargot Baked Alaska haunt.  I didn't even know what those dishes were at his age.

I learned a long time ago to like Spam........But I like it with Scrambled Eggs.
I used to watch my Mom and her Mom cook up some amazing stuff with little to nothing. What was fun (for me) was making and baking bread and biscuits with my grandmother.

One of my kids has a crush on her friend, a boy.  :facepalm:

Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with that at all, what I do have a problem with is mommy's so not fucking ready for that shit!  :roll:

But honestly I can't blame her because he's soooooooo cute :D And kinda girly. Has girly hair. Probably couldn't tell he was a boy if you didn't know. But no. No, mommy's not ready for that.

On the plus side I've already started torturing her with "You've got a boyfriend!"  :emot_laughing:

Guess this could also go in "What Made Your Day", but I'm putting it here.

Neighbors were over last night and it was mentioned that the little girl is now selling Girl Scout cookies.  I have to have Thin Mint every year at this time.
We placed the order and asked when they needed the money and when we'd get delivery.  They said, "Right now.  Have everything at the house."  In minutes we had our cookies and they had the money.

The bad/good thing is:  Mom is the head cookie mother for the troop.  There's over 1000 boxes of Girl Scout cookies just across the street!!! :emot_weird: :emot_weird: :emot_weird:
All I need do is run over with a fist full of dollars and get more when we run out. Not a good situation of a diabetic and addict.  :facepalm:

My gaming laptop has been getting amazingly hot. I have a cooling pad for it, but it didn't seem to make much of a difference. My daughter and her friend couldn't get through half an hour of playing a game on it before it shut it's self off. I've had problems with this damn thing recently. Rather than chuck it and spend another $2000 I decided to take the fucker apart and see if the fan was working right. It was not. It was coated in dust and clogged with what I'll blame as dog hair.  :roll:

I keep my house immaculate. I'd like to think you couldn't find a spec of dust anywhere. I vacuum so much I recently burned out a vacuum. But this fucker was absolutely fucking filthy inside. I had to take it to the garage and used a can of air to blow it all out then took the fan out, disassembled it and cleaned it. I used all my blonde IQ to figure out how to take it apart without destroying it. I put it all back together, crossed my fingers and turned it on. I set a game to it's max settings and ran it for about two hours to test it. Yesterday you could bake a cake on it, but today it didn't even get warm the whole time.

It seems to run much faster too. I cleaned it up spotless and it seems good as new. But this was a fucking chore.  :facepalm:

I'm willing to bet your computer didn't cost anywhere near over $2000.  ;D

Client hires me to fight a messy probate battle.  After significant research and trips to the courthouse, I learn that virtually everything she told me about the case was incorrect, and we can get her problem resolved without filing suit.

Happy client?  No.  Screamed and yelled and demanded that I not charge a fee, because "you should have known that when I hired you."  Ugh.  TGTIF.

What part of "it's going to cost you $xxx.00/hr as soon as the client says you're hired to a lawyer" did the client not understand? Maybe the client doesn't understand that going to court would probably cost her more than what she will owe now.

Reminds me of the knife sharpener who would charge $1.00 to sharpen a knife. A customer complained that the guy only used about 5 cents worth of material off his grinding wheel. Where did the sharpener get off charging a dollar? The sharpener's reply was that he charged 5 cents for the materials and 95 cents for knowing how to sharpen the knife.

The baby would not sleep, so neither could I. I am fucking exhausted. The girls were uncooperative this morning and I tried my hardest to keep my cool with them. Thankfully the wife stepped up and took charge of them and cleaned the kitchen.

But... some motherfucker decided to stick a fucking sign in my yard. It was also a leftist SJW message!!!!!!!!!! woo fucking hoooooooo!!!!!!!!!! I am in a horrible enough mood today because I haven't slept. The fucking thing said in English Spanish and fuckin' Arabic how proud we are to have them in our neighborhood, even though there are no fucking Arabs or Mexicans here!!!!!!!!! I know who did it. I ripped it out of my yard and delivered the fuckin' thing back to them and told them if they set foot on my property again I'd have them arrested.

Don't fuck with this bitch when I'm so tired I can't keep my eyes open.

I was half joking. But only half.

I would never encourage someone to drink who doesn't drink, or doesn't want to drink. But you don't have to get drunk. I've found that just an ounce or two in a glass, sipped slowly, helps ease away the day's tensions, without my getting even close to tipsy.

Take the battery out of the laptop completely. Leave the power supply plugged in and try to start it. This will, if it works, make the diagnosis a battery problem. Beyond that, I'm not sure what the problem might be without seeing it.

My new fucking iPhone arrived yesterday.  7 Plus.  258 Gb.  And as *always*, MAJOR HASSLES GETTING IT TO SYNC, load apps, contacts, photos, vids, music, etc.  I've been working on it for 24 hours, more or less incommunicado, and I suspect it's going to take 15 more efforts to load over another week.  I've had Apple phones for almost a decade, and have never had a restore go smoothly, much less quickly.

That stinks.    I've never had a problem switching.   At Christmas, I got my friend a 7.   She had a 5c and didn't want to upgrade because of the hassle.   We were done in an hour, with 99% of that hour was leaving it to sync.   My last model switch I did from the cloud.  Same thing, seamless transition.   Wish I could help.

So my wife walks in the house after getting groceries and calls me down to the garage.

"We've got a leak and it's not your car. It's coming from the ceiling." she says.
"Crap" says I. "That's not how I wanted to spend a Saturday afternoon."

So, I pull down a piece of drywall and start tugging at the insulation. Crap. I need help and I need some tools.

Now any excuse to buy tools is good by me. But, finding a leaking water line through 3 layers of insulation is not my idea of fun.

Called my brother and he was happy to come and help. Bring a ladder I say.

I go out and buy a 2 lamp work light setup.  I get home and put it together. As I am finishing the assembly, my brother walks in. With a ladder. Turns out he was looking for an excuse to buy a new step ladder.

An hour and a half later, we have figured out where the leak is coming from. The toilet in the main floor bath room is leaking from the connector between the toilet and the water line. 20 minutes to fix it and another 15-20 minutes to put the insulation back.

In the mean time, by knocking the new work light over and then gravity proving what a bitch it can be, I need two new bulbs for my brand new light.


And THAT is what ruined my day.

But...you got the leak fixed.  I have 0 plumbing skills.  Just got a bill for over $100, for having a dripping faucet fixed.

And, you now have a new work light.  Woo Hoo

The skill involved is more along the lines of finding the source of the leak. The fix was simply tightening up what the effin' plumber (me) didn't get right the first time.

As for the work light -- I need 2 new bulbs already because if fell over twice.

The do make heavy duty bulbs with tough plastic coating on the bulb.  I used 'em in my walk in freezer.

I'm so dumb about plumbing that the last time we had a leak my male cat had to tell me about it.  He was yeowling in the kitchen and when I went to see what was up, he started down to the basement.  I followed and water was dripping through the floor from the kitchen sink.  Smart cat, eh!
OK...the water hit the cement floor and splashed into his litter box.  Remember, with cats, it's all about their needs ;D  (see my sig. line.)

Didn't ruin my day, but, irritated by it.   Nothing really ruined my day.   Busy at work and my day sort of flew by.

Last night a group of friends and I went for a meal in a plush hotel. We'd booked in advance and even ordered our food in advance. All went well, the starters arrived and were very tasty.

Then the main meals arrived except the hotel had f*cked up three orders and had the audacity to tell us they were serving what we'd ordered. A copy email of the order proved them wrong. For three of us there was a delay whilst the correct meals were prepared. An apology was made but no offer of any recompense... but the bill arrived and there was a healthy deduction from the overall cost.

It still spoiled what was supposed to be a good evening out...

Well...I found it funny.  I do have a warped sense of humor tho'.

Like you...nothing really ruins my day.  I take the "this too shall change" outlook on life.  If things are bad, tough, it'll change.  Likewise when things are going good, that will change too.  Life is ups and downs.  Makes it a great ride. ;D

Complications after a tooth extraction.  Been having some pain for a few weeks and they did an x-ray yesterday.  Got a call this morning after the dentist was able to examine them.  While the gums healed nicely there is an infection in the bone socket.  He may need to go in to drain and clean it if antibiotics don't work well enough.  He wanted to make the appointment though to make sure it does not lead to bone damage.

Yesterday, but I wasn't up to posting one-handed.  :facepalm:  The irony kills me.

A young woman at work made a bad choice in handling a forklift, and ended up with a three-way battle between a heavy steel building beam, the forklift, and her hand.  Her hand lost the battle, of course.  They had to scrape and scrub pieces of her hand off of the beam and forklift later...  I had to review the accident.  I'm still a little nauseous after the review.


edit: my new avatar, after the operation, before the full cast next week,

By the time the cast comes off, I'll have spent 5 months dealing with a simple broken wrist.  I'll have an excellent chance of a full recovery.  My co-worker?  Not so much.  I'd heard she spent nearly 18 hours in surgery with a team of doctors working in shifts to save as much as possible.  Mine was only 7 hours (one surgeon), for comparison.

Weekend in the cardiac ICU.  $25,000 a day, and all they did was an echocardiogram.  They gave me ONE beta blocker.  I finally said, "Look, if you aren't going to do anything, or let me speak with a doctor, I'm going home.  I can lay in bed there, and eat shitty food, for a lot less than $25K a day."  So they kicked me to the curb.  'Murcia.

Driving home from work yesterday, and a DENTIST in a brand new $250,000 RV pinned me to the wall on the Interstate.  Douche bag changed lanes without looking in his mirror, and without activating his turn signal.  His FIRST time out in the mobile McMansion.  He still had paper plates on it.  Big carbon footprint all over my car, so claim forms, estimates, repairs, rentals.  Fucker.

I was going to say snow, but FUCK. Did you ask the yutz if he forgot the turn signal or didn't have that option installed? He probably had his head so far up his ass that if you had operated your horn he wouldn't have heard it.

Discovered last Thursday that we have some fascia coming off. Contacted a roofing company to get it fixed on Friday. They came out and looked at the job and said they would be back on Saturday. Well, it rained. We have cedar shakes on our roof which become almost like ice (traction wise) when wet. So, they called and said they would be contacting us about coming out later. Wednesday now and we haven't heard from them yet. I called this morning and am waiting to hear back.

Spring clean up in the yard.  8 hours of raking out leaves from the flowerbeds, cutting ornamental grasses down, trimming rose bushes, fertilizing and spreading mulch.  My forearms look like they've been whipped because of all the little cuts on my arms.  Muscles are hurting today that I never knew existed.  I really need a massage.

An employee collapsed with a seizure in the parking lot.  After a staff member alerted me, I ran outside to find four people standing around him going "Durrrrr...."  So I tell one guy to call 911, and what to tell the dispatcher.  Then had another help me roll him over so we could check vitals and start CPR.  I'm thinking, "WTF.  I'm probably the oldest, and least healthy, guy in the firm, and yet I put in the longest hours and now have to save people's lives also."

Anyway, the dude came to, and is going to be okay.  Turns out he's been off his heart meds for three weeks, because of benefits changes.  Refused to go to the hospital. I made his wife come to the office and take him home.

I was talking with my mom on the phone while standing in line at the grocery store.  I said, "What time will daddy be home?"    I heard two girls (18ish) behind me snickering.  And I heard one say, "omg, is she 10?  Daddy?" And they laughed again.    I turned around and stared at them.   A friend of theirs came up and he could sense the tension.  "What's going on," he asked.   I kept staring at the girls, then I squinted my eyes a little, looking back and forth from one to the other.   Nobody said anything.   The boy finally said, "Whoa, this is intense."    The two girls got out of line and walked back into the store. I heard one say, "What the fuck is wrong with that Psycho."   Little bitches.  

I've always called him that.   I even refer to him here as my daddy.

Kori Ali Muhammad, a black Muslim, murders 3 white people, screams "Allahu Akbar" and it doesn't trend on twitter, CNN and Fox don't give two fucks, and the media that does report it claim it wasn't a hate crime. Even though people with IQ's found his facebook and shit and he's all about murdering whitey. You know what would have made the news? If the cops didn't take him alive. Then there would be riots in the streets.

And the other day when that black man in Cleveland murdered a black man and there was a manhunt, the news called him "dark white skinned".

Fuckin' disgusting motherfuckin' fake news cock suckers.

The worst day of my life has been today.

My love came home from Costa Rica, and I got to see her. I was supposed to have dinner with her.

She is pregnant by a man she has been seeing in costa  rica. And it isn't  a relationship that includes children or long term relationship, or marriage.

She is scared and doesn't see how she can continue a romantic relationship with me.

I feel stone cold dead.

Been there.  Done that.  Wait till she calls you from labor and delivery, while she's squeezing his kid out.  And sends you photos of her cuddling with the little bastard.  Ugh.  PTSD moment.  I feel for you. Really.

There were front page articles about Kori Ali Muhammad in the New York Times both yesterday and today. They specifically indicate that Muhammad "wanted to kill as many white people as he could before he was captured," and they directly label it a hate crime. Today's article quotes the Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer:

"He provided some very specific detailed information that caused our detectives to believe that this was motivated based on hate and not based on any terrorist act. This is solely based on race."

Perhaps you need to expand your definition of "the media" and "the news" to something beyond "what's trending on twitter"?

Daughter and Son-In-Law have been in town the last week from Upstate New York.  Got with 'em several times and had nice visits and had fun with the dog and cat they bring with.  They said they were leaving tomorrow (Wed.) and we were going out this afternoon to say goodby.

I called after getting back from the dog park to see when would be a good time to come out.  Didn't get an answer, but a few minutes later she called back.  They decided to head back today to get ahead of a storm that was predicted.  They were nearly to Chicago when I heard from her.  Guess I'll see them in October.

*knock on wood* Only have lost it once since moving.


What ruined my day....McDonalds has an App that awards you 6 free chicken McNuggets if the Detroit Tigers score 6 runs the previous day.  EVERYBODY at work is gaga that they're getting free nuggets.   But they don't JUST get nuggets, they order a fry and a softdrink.   I try not to be the fitness kook at work but this is driving me crazy watching everybody eat so terribly 2-3 times a week.   ick

Wow P.  I am so sorry to read that.   I can kind of relate to his reason for not telling you and others.    My sister wished she could just spend her last visits in her final weeks as she had always spent time with her friends, just enjoying each others company.   She appreciated how sympathetic many were, but she just wanted her friends to really enjoy their last times together, and not be in low spirits.  I can't say for sure, but perhaps this may be why he didn't say anything to you and others.  You can be sure he walked away from your last meeting with a smile for having the opportunity to see you one last time, and he likely shed a tear at the same time.   I'm sure you'll miss him.  I'm so sorry.

Unfortunately I had to send him back to the owners.....a beautiful little bay gelding.
________________________________________________________________________
Update:  Today........
Just found out that the owners were hoping I would take him off their hands (apparently they didn't want him anymore (disposable horse / pet)).  Discovered from the feed store that he's headed for the slaughter house (I feel like crap).

Love,

Car is in the shop needing $750 worth of repairs.  I don't have that kind of money, but without the car I can't get to my job.

UGH!

Unless it involves mucking with the computer it likely is something anyone could handle themselves. Youtube is your friend. Righty tighty, lefty loosy (Hey Lucy, I'm home!) Old bit out. New bit in. Except for electrical stuff, mechanical things are pretty straight forward. The arm bone connects to the neck bone sort of stuff.

The part from the local supplier is $550.  Because the car is so old to replace the coil/condenser we have to replace the entire distributor unit.  They don't sell it separate bits anymore. But I found the unit online for $280.  I talked to the mechanic and he called his supplier who will bring his part down to $300.  This will bring the cost down to $500 total, including the $150 diagnostic fee I've already racked up.  Looks like it might be doable.

Wow!! Points and condenser ignition.  I love it! That's back when cars were made of steel instead of Chineseium (100 points to the first person who can cite the reference). The average person has to work 2 to 4 hours for every shop hour to pay for the rates they charge. Not saying they aren't worth it, but it's an up hill battle for many. As a rule I do absolutely everything I can reasonably (including engine/transmission swap). I only go to the shop for computer related stuff. Even then I typically only pay for the diagnostic then go fix it myself. Amazon is a great source for parts. Sounds like you're a savvy consumer and won a small battle. Nice work!

I have a 1995 Nissan 240SX, rear wheel drive.  This was built just before Nissan nearly went bankrupt because they were still making quality cars.  To avoid bankruptcy they had to start manufacturing junk like all the other car companies.

I fell of a ladder and hurt my ankle on Sunday.  I went to the ER on Monday and found out I broke it. They were hoping to admit me so I could get surgery on it Tuesday, but there was no room, so they sent me home in a semi-cast called a splint.  I have to keep it elevated all the time or it swells up and gets very uncomfortable in the splint.  That means mostly lying in bed, so I'm not on the computer much.  It's a good thing I bought a couple of books.

Really bummed because I planned to go to Palm Springs the weekend of 9-11.  I'm going to wait until I talk to the doc tomorrow before deciding if I'm going now.

I do too.  I'm about ready to go lie down again.  I have a slave coming over to my laundry in a little while.  The poor boy is so sweet and worried about me.  He's a treasure.  Now if only he did not have a phobia about rubbing feet and washing dishes - LOL!

I really wish I was better at this whole Domme thing.  It takes a lot of time and I'm such a home-body.  I really only have time and energy for one, and that's because he takes much of the initiative.

One fellow has offered yard and house work if I make him get naked and wear women's underthings.  But he is just exhausting to communicate with.  "I'm so scared and nervous." he says.  I suspect he's wanking and getting a thrill out of just talking about doing it and does not really want to take the plunge at all.  So I've just stopped responding.

I'm scheduled for surgery on Tuesday.  I tried to talk them out of it, but because I broke both sides of the ankle it has to be.

They gave me percocet for the pain.  I took one last night and it was way too strong.  I was nauseous all night and into the next day.  UGH.  I cut one in half for tonight.  Still upsets my stomach a bit, but if it dulls the pain enough to sleep that's all I need.

I can't take any vitamin E, fish oil, or ibuprofen before surgery.  I'm going to be missing the ibuprofen.  It worked as a pain reliever and to reduce the swelling.  I have no idea why vitamin E and fish oil are restricted, but ibuprofen works as a blood thinner and it is understandable they don't want a person that won't stop bleeding during surgery.

Vitamin E & fish oils also have blood-thinning effects.

Though their effect is not as great as for ibuprofen, you're still supposed to stop taking both at least a week before surgery.

You're in all of our thoughts.    Tuesday seems so far away.   Is it because of all the swelling?    Hopefully you have a somewhat restful weekend ahead.

I am in agony. No more ibuprofen and the swelling is so severe that the splint has dug into my shins causing bruising and dents. I know because I've finally unwrapped it so I can ice it. Will call tomorrow and see what I can try. They should have written a script for celebrex.

So sorry this is going so bad for you, Lois.  I have to wonder about the medical care out there.  Making you wait so long before surgery is hard to understand. 
I know how tough broken ankles can be.  Wife managed to break both hers in one fall a few years ago.  She was totally helpless so was admitted right away and ended up with two weeks in rehab too.

I hope you have someone who can get some more ibuprofen to you.  And yes, ice should help the swelling.  Is there an urgent care facility you can call today?  Hope you get help soon.  Thinking of you.

Lie face down on your bed, get somebody to massage your scalp with their fingertips, top of your head and down to your neck.

While they're doing that, try the 4-7-8 breathing exercise, closing your eyes and picturing your favourite KBers wiggling their interesting parts to distract you...

Called the hospital last night and they said to come in right away.  They re-wrapped the splint a little looser and that helped a lot.  Still hurts because of the damage from have in too tight for so long, but getting better.

No ibuprofen until after surgery.

And yes, I live in the USA and I'm not rich, so of course my medical care is lousy.  It is a very long time to wait for surgery.  If I was in Europe, they would have admitted me on the spot and gotten surgery within 48 hours.  But not here.  Here we pay more and get less.

I can't even start recovery until the surgery is completed.  And even then it is an outpatient procedure.  No wonder the US leads the developed world in post surgery infections.  I am expected to wash myself before the surgery with DIAL soap, when I cannot even clean myself properly because I cannot stand up in the shower.

OUCH... I feel your pain, Lois!  Perhaps more poignantly than most.  Depending on the OR, I might recommend a Betadine scrub of the whole lower leg before heading in, as chlorhexidine is hard to come by for us normal folks.  Chloraprep is what they use for surgical prep, but Betadine is a good second choice, though it'll stain your skin for a few weeks.

I missed this entire thread until now... didn't know you were emulating me.  :'(  
Falling off of ladders isn't fun, but at least you'll be healing while I'm still waiting the SECOND surgery on mine.

Dunno what your diet is like, but I'd recommend two supplements, both can be had at a decent Farmer's Market or Whole Paycheck:
1) Source of Life 'Bone Support' (organic calcium, magnesium, D3 & K2)
2) Trace Minerals Research 'ConcenTrace Trace Mineral Drops' (get the small bottle)

Even if you heal normally, those two will help speed new bone growth after the surgery.  You only need 'em for about 6 to 8 weeks.

Ugggghhh... wearing an ankle cast in Tucson summers...

edit: Crap!  I forgot... ziplock freezer bag with 1 part isopropyl alcohol, 2 to 4 parts water (more water in the ratio makes it more solid, so 1:4 is the most firm, 1:2 the most flexible).  Drop it in the freezer (make 3 or 4 of 'em), makes a cold pack that will conform to your hurting ankle better than bags of ice (or whatever).  It won't freeze solid, so it's flexible.

They made me wait six days for surgery, for no other reason than no additional OR's were available.  Charged about $15,000 per day to "stabilize and monitor."

Saturday night, they showed up in my room and said I was discharged.  No instructions on wound care or medication.  Just "see your doctor in 2 to 4 weeks."  'Murica.

Surgery is done. Yay! That means I'm finally on the mend. The nerve blocks will fade soon, so I'm​taking ibuprofen in the hopes it will curb the pain when they wear off.

I'm stuck in bed on cell phone for a bit though.

Post by: RopeFiend on June 07, 2017, 04:07:53 AM

Lois, NSAIDs (Ibuprofin, Naproxen, etc.) all block or significantly slow the healing process, so get off of them as soon as you can.  Aspirin and narcotics don't have the same effect, so they're OK to take unless you have problems with one or the other. 

I can recommend Vicodin, myself.  Dr RopeFiend *LIKES* Vicodin when he's in pain.  Luckily that's pretty rare.


Title: Re: What RUINED your day today?
Post by: Lois on June 07, 2017, 05:24:58 AM
If I don't take ibuprofen, it will swell and cause damage in the cast.  I'm using ice, but it really does not penetrate the bandage.  Not to worry.  I will limit the use of ibuprofen to control the swelling until it subsides.

They also gave me vicodin on steroids: percocet.  But it makes me nauseous.  They gave me lots of opioids after surgery to control the pain until the nerve block was redone.  It didnt really help and left me with a terrible headache and some nausea.

Also drinking lots of water.

Yeah, that's why I don't ask for Percocet... it's too strong most times.  I just wish Vicodin didn't have Tylenol in it.  You can't safely double-dose the Vicodin 'cos you run the risk of a Tylenol overdose that kills your liver.  The 'safe range' on the hydrocodone in Vicodin is quite high, though.  If it weren't for the Tylenol, you could safely take up to 9 times the Vicodin dose of hydrocodone, if needed.  Tylenol is fuckin' worthless as pain relief, and should ONLY ever be prescribed to reduce a fever.  Aspirin works better for pain relief, and has a wider therapeutic range than Tylenol (acetaminophen) does.

You'll probably need the ibuprofin for a couple of weeks, best guess.  That's about twice as long as it took for the swelling in my wrist to go down, but I wasn't walking on my wrist and could keep it elevated more easily.

I don't do Tylenol.  Aspirin only.  I'm taking Tramadol at the moment, post surgery.  It is not very powerful, but seems to help.

If it helps, it's good.

I'm allergic to codeine and suspect I'm allergic to the percocet as well.  I think that's why I get so nauseous when I take it.  But it does help with the pain.  I would prefer vicodin.  Not so strong.

I agree with your philosophy: if it works, it works.

I have the same reaction as you to strong painkillers, especially demerol. They make me almost instantly nauseous, with the typical results. The first time I took it (kidney stones), after about 4 minutes I started barfing uncontrollably.

Hydrocodone doesn't make me nauseous, and it's extremely effective. However, it's also extremely addictive. When I took it the first time, it kicked in right away and my abdominal pain from the kidney stones vanished very quickly. It also made me feel wonderful, almost euphoric. Which, of course, helped me understand why it's abused, and why there's currently an epidemic of abuse of hydrocodone.

Ibuprofen (like Midol and Motrin) works wonders. It's a painkiller and a muscle relaxant.

Finding out that most folks along the street here (including my neighbors) have bedbugs, and I'm the only one actively fighting 'em.  When I get 'em killed off here, they'll just be back again to terrorize me.

The 'rash' I had didn't itch until I knew it was bedbugs, so that's purely psychosomatic.  The itches are still about to drive me nuts, even though I know it's all in my head.


Title: Re: What RUINED your day today?
Post by: Lois on June 16, 2017, 09:28:51 PM
Nope.  You are wrong.  Most people do not react to their first bedbug bites.  It's an allergic reaction and once sensitized it gets worse over time.

Bedbugs moved into my home three years ago when a neighbor moved and they moved out looking for new people to bite.  I never even actually found any bedbug signs except for the telltale 3-4 bites in a row or cluster.  I treated for bed-bugs and they went away.  I'm lucky I caught them early and I before I had a real infestation.

Bed bugs are becoming a real problem.  We almost eradicated them at one point but they are making a big come back.  It will take a real concerted effort by everyone, including the government (and governments worldwide), to eradicate them again.  And we need to move quickly before they become resistant to the pesticides that are safe to use in our homes.

Title: Re: What RUINED your day today?
Post by: RopeFiend on June 17, 2017, 02:29:42 AM

They're already resistant.  Poisons that worked on them 10 years ago aren't working today.  Sadly, I'm severely limited to what I can use indoors, as I have a violent reaction to most poisons.  My lungs close up, similar to bronchitis.  If it's outdoors, it's not nearly as bad of a reaction, and Benadryl will usually keep my lungs open.

And I was getting bites for almost 3 weeks before I diagnosed the cause.  No itching until I knew it was bedbugs.  Sounds psychosomatic to me.

Not able to sleep last night AGAIN!  The air-boot I have to wear to support my broken ankle rubs on the surgery incision on the inside right side making it a sensitive pressure point.  This makes getting comfy enough to sleep very difficult.  I finally fell asleep around 4am and slept until noon.

I was trying to get my sleep schedule back to a normal one last night because I go back to work tomorrow.  So I took two sleeping pills but they did not work.

I hope I get some sleep tonight.

Going back to work after six weeks unpaid medical leave.  I am grateful to still have a job, and I need a paycheck, but it's a tough mental switch to stuff yourself back in the office after so long an absence.  Also, everyone's "office complaints" seem rather trivial, after a near death experience, and gazing into the gaping maws of eternity.

Received word that someone that I consider a friend will be moving.
The news saddened me. 
I only had one way to contact her, but it has been disconnected.   So now I have no way of getting in contact with her.
I hope to hear from her before her departure.

Like Julie, we are losing a close friend today.  Ruby, the sweet Basset Hound of our neighbors will be moving to the other side of the metro area (about 20 miles).

Wife started taking care of her and another Basset when they were only a few months old, letting them out when owners were at work.  Now Ruby is 11 years old, so she's been part of our lives for over ten years.

Wife took them to the dog park after the back yard romps weren't enough.  When she ended up breaking both ankles one icy winter day, I took over the dog park trips.  Today will be our last visit there.  Many of the other regulars at the park will also be missing her, even if she gets a little snippy at strange dogs approaching too quickly.

I know we'll still see her once in awhile, but it's still a loss after being in Ruby's life for all these years, including dealing with her diabetes discovered while her owners were on vacation.  Besides the dog park visits, we get called on to feed her and give her insulin shot when "Mom and Dad" go out early on weekends and wife stays with her when they're on vacation .

In addition wife started making outfits for various holidays and dressing them up.  I take the pictures and at the end of the year we make a calendar with all that year's costumes.  We still have 5 more pictures to complete the 2018 calendar, so there will be those opportunities.  Here's Ruby celebrating the 4th.

Either there is something screwy with the electrical of my house or my electrician skills are not as good as I thought. I hope it's the latter.

For a kitchen you need GFI, right.     Each receptacle does not have to be.  Only the first one does and then everyone after that does (I think it is referred to as "in series").   Either you have a bad GFI,or one of the receptacles that follow is either wired wrong or a bad receptacle.    
Same thing happened with the remodel of my bathroom.

I thought I did. Obviously I didn't but I think I'm smart enough to know when to let a professional do it.

I also have a  problem with a 4 way light switch set up (3 switches to control 1 light). Again, I thought I wired the new switches exactly the same as the old ones but ...

Jules, we want GFIs in the kitchen BUT, they were not required when the home was built. And to install them would require a completely new breaker panel. Overall, the exercise would be VERY expensive. We know this because my wife works for an electrical company and sees the billing for their clients.

As for your comment, Katie --- been there - done that.

Remember I'm posting from the UK...


A popping breaker is a short or an overload somewhere - either across the live/neutral, or to Earth ("ground" to colonials), or the thing you are plugging in has developed a fault and the fuse in the plug is too big.

I think the short is probably the most likely, and the first thing I would look for is stray strands of the multi-core wire. They can be almost invisible in the shadowy guts of a wall socket, but still enough to provide a route for current to flow the wrong way. Next time the breaker trips, leave it tripped and open each socket in turn, sniffing for that "electrical burning" smell, and looking for signs of soot or charring, then fixing the stray wire.



Title: Re: What RUINED your day today?
Post by: JBRG on July 21, 2017, 08:07:24 PM
Both problems are now solved.

1. the counter plugs --- wired correctly BUT I had forgotten about clipping the tabs on the right side of the plugs. Therefore, they were in a permanent short. Clipped the tabs and the problem went away.

2. the 4 way/3 way switch problem was one of incorrect wiring. I wired the new 4 way switch the exact same way as the original (the wires on the right side were wired to the right side of the new switch -- left side to left side). HOWEVER, the new switch was not wired the same way internally.

Changing out the light switches from standard to Decora. Simple enough. Turn power off, take out old switch, put new switch in making sure it is wired exactly the same as the original. Turn power back on and test.


Then one of the lights doesn't light up when the switch is turned on. WTF? How can I mess it up. It's 2 fuckin' wires. 2.





I'm about to call a professional when my wife decides to tell me that the bulb burnt out a couple of days ago.  ARRRGGHHH!!!!!

Walked into the office this morning.   Turned on the light and there was a 4 inch centipede crawling across the floor.   I screamed and ran out.   Major goosebumps.    Then I thought, 'I can't go back in until I know it's dead.'   So I went back in and squished it with my shoe.   More goosebumps as I felt it crackle and crunch.    *shiver*

Just writing and thinking about it, more goosebumps.    Ick, I hate those more than spiders.  They're the worst!

We call the cats for any bug problems.  In August there are big black moths that get in the bathroom somehow.  When I'm in there getting ready for bed, two or three will usually come in.  I call the cats and they both come running.  The girl gives it her best, but usually misses.  The boy is deadly.  One swat with his paw and the beastie is down (leaving black powder in the tub or on the wall.

Quick wipe takes care of the powder.  The boy eats his kill.  No muss little fuss.

We always ran into that in Zihuatanejo, down the coast from there.  Locals told us to never give 'em any money.  They usually were for Central America and faced worse discrimination from the Mexicans that the Mexicans face up here.  It's hard to see the suffering, I know.  For as much as we complain about the politics up here, it pales compared to what you can see in Mexico and other poor countries.

A private school only 16 blocks from our house blew up this morning.  Several injured, one dead and one still missing.  There were many student athletes there but none injured.  The girls cross country team and just left for their run when the bang occurred. A contracting company was installing gas pipes and a gas meter.  Someone fucked up big time.  There was a warning shortly before the explosion and many were able to get out in time.  What makes it even worse is the community has been reliving the collapse of the I-35 bridge, 10 years ago. That killed 13.  Somehow seeing pictures of the collapsed building and the injured being help seems much worse when it's a location I've driven by so many times.

What ruined my day......
Had a day with a friend planned for her birthday.    Lunch, shopping, movie, light dinner with drinks.   Well, we were heading from the movie theatre to the restaurant for dinner and she got a call from her husband.   Her son was riding his bike and a dog started chasing him.   He ended up falling from his bike and went to the hospital with a broken arm.   Poor thing.   The dog has been a problem in their neighborhood for a couple of years.   He didn't hurt him, just scared him.

You would think a home improvement store that sells installation service would actually have the installers install what is in the store. Went to both Home Depot and Lowes for a simple wood core steel clad entrance door. Price for the door at Lowes -- $264. At Home Depot $312. Had an installer representing HD come by and he quoted me $3000 for delivery, installation of new door and disposal of the old door. I looked at him like he was on drugs and he explained that the new door would be a super-duper high quality fibreglass door. I told him that I wanted (and showed him cell phone picture) was a door similar to the one I want replaced. His response was that they don't install the stuff that is actually in the store.

I learned that Lowes works the same way. If I buy a door from the store, their installation service won't install it.

As I sit here typing, our plan is to spend a couple more years here then sell the place and become hoboes for 1/2 year (buy a motorhome and travel across Canada and back) before settling down someplace different. Other than keeping the weather outside, we really don't give a crap about the door. We live in a townhouse condo. A super-frazmic door isn't going to increase the resale value of our home.

Has anyone ever told you that your foot fetish is a bit over the top?

Personally, I am fascinated by human feet in the natural environment.  I have gone to countries where shoes are unknown.  Are you aware that humans can develop a very thick sole on the bottom of their feet that is impervious to rocks and thorns?  It is really awsome.  Humans are amazing!

This was the second attempt.  The prep didn't do much of anything useful the first time, and I'd THOUGHT that the 2-day prep worked the second try.  Nope!  Still have nearly a sixth of the bowel surface covered with hard, crusty crap that a pressure washer couldn't dislodge.  I'm now taking something to hopefully soften and release the built-up stuff that's fermenting in my lower gut, waiting for a THIRD round of bowel prep.  Oh, fucking joy.

Being off of here on Saturday and Sunday I logged on this morning and went to my "Unread since last visit" . 

Started on page 4 (last page), made it to page 3-1/2 when someone came in my office.  Instead of minimizing, I closed it.   

Logging back in, my "Unread since last visit" is just 5 posts.   Now I have to work a bit harder to see what I missed the last couple of days.   

Oh, well, if that's the worst that happens....

If that happens to me [at home - I don't browse KB at work], I quickly open and close the handful of unread threads, even if they're of no interest to me, then hit the "unread" button again - that then reveals an "all unread" option for me to trawl through, which often gets to as many as 15-20 pages of threads.


BTW - welcome back!

Locked out of the dog park.  Took my little Basset Buddy Gus to the dog park as usual.  As we neared the park (It's next to the airport) an Airport Policeman stopped us.  He said the dog park was closed.  Someone had been spotted climbing the fence into the runway area and they were doing a search.

I turned the car around and as we retraced our route, I glanced over my shoulder.  His chin was on the back of my seat and his eyes looked so sad.  I found a place to park and we walked for awhile, until the rain started again.
Not a good dog park day, but Gus was happy.  Dogs are so easy to please.

I can understand why they closed it. The city built a dog park right next to where I teach motorcycle riding. When a dog "escapes", we stop what we are doing until the mutt has been rounded up. Thankfully it happens only 2 or 3 times per year.

No it wasn't a dog. 
A person went over the fence.  That's what they were looking for.  Just keeping everyone away while they searched.  The airport owns the dog park area and lets dog owners or walkers, in my case, use the area.

Here is a joke for you:

An elderly gentleman in a nursing home was dating an elderly widow. The gentleman would play with her pussy and spend the night in her room. One day the widow told him that she did not want to see him anymore, that she had found a new gentleman caller. 

He was very upset and asked her, "What does he have that I don't have?"

She replied, "Parkinsons."

Indeed, I dated a gentleman with Parkinson's for a time and it was very nice.

Now I know Parkinson's gets steadily worse, but there are some incredible advances being made to stop its progress.  Hopefully your friend will be one of the first to benefit from these advancements.

Last week (forgot to mention it):  Had a webcam on a garden hose shoved up my ass; afterwards the doctor told me I was full of shit, AND HE PROVED IT!  Y'all suspected, but I have photographic evidence.  :D

This was the second attempt.  The prep didn't do much of anything useful the first time, and I'd THOUGHT that the 2-day prep worked the second try.  Nope!  Still have nearly a sixth of the bowel surface covered with hard, crusty crap that a pressure washer couldn't dislodge.  I'm now taking something to hopefully soften and release the built-up stuff that's fermenting in my lower gut, waiting for a THIRD round of bowel prep.  Oh, fucking joy.

I have a meet & greet with him on Tuesday.  Yeah, I'll ask, but he'd already blamed it on my high-fiber diet.  You need fiber in your diet to keep things running smoothly, but on the AutoImmune Protocol I'm on, my diet is 80% veggies, 10-15% meat, and 5-10% fruits, berries and seeds.  BOATLOADS of both digestible and nondigestible fiber in the veggies, and the gut bacteria are overwhelmed with food.  Apparently constipation is a common result of the AIP diet, from what I've read.

<reply to Staci>  I'm not grouchy, I'm in better spirits than I've been in a long time.   ;D

Oh, and my new (as of January) GP is finally coming around.  She still wants me to stop smoking, but the diet change impressed her.  I'm kinda/sorta following a path that her parents (Ayurvedic practitioners in India) would be supportive of, though she can't openly since she's a regular allopathic MD.  She approved of what I've been doing (full lifestyle change, including eliminating toxins in my home environment).

Herm.... one thing that Gina hadn't noticed about going Paleo (roughly the same as my diet) is that the total volume of semen from an ejaculation is down to half or a third of what it'd been on my former diet (organic vegetarian).  Not a girl thing, so it wouldn't hit on her radar.

The ORIGINAL reason I meant to post today:  I sat down, and it still hurts.

I'm unusually skinny... WILDLY so.  So much that I have to special-order my jeans here in Dallas.  Then 10 weeks ago I went sorta-Paleo and lost another 8 pounds in about a week.  I lost about a pound off the belly, 1 to 2 off the hips, and MY ASS IS GONE.  I went from a cute little bubble-butt to just FLAT GONE.  So, no more padding.  Nada.  Zip.  There's maybe a half inch or more of muscle between the pelvic bone and the ground.  I plopped down on the floor like I've done all my life and damned near broke my pelvis.  The kitchen is tiled, no bounce, and I ain't got the cushion I used to have.  I have to be careful from now on.   :-[

I'm on a diuretic, which pretty much makes my colon Death Velley Days.  So, I ate two cans of Hormel chili recently.  Took four days to come out.  Try Uncle Sam's cereal.  It's like eating ground glass mixed with sand, but at 11 grams of fiber per serving, it will clean your alimentary canal.

Post by: RopeFiend on August 22, 2017, 05:24:21 AM

I'm not sure what 'Uncle Sam's cereal' is, but it's probably forbidden on my Autoimmune Protocol diet.  I get plenty of fiber... BUTTLOADS of fiber.   :emot_coolasssshk:
Two weeks ago the doc said that was the problem (excess fiber causing my little bacterial friends to go berserk).

So, not enough fiber = constipation, and too much fiber = constipation.  I'm screwed either way, 'cos I'm not changing my diet for at least 6 months.  I'm staying almost pure AIP until then to give it a realistic chance at working, and then I'll have the TPO antibodies retested to see if the immune response is lowering.  If it's working, then I stay on the AIP diet until the antibodies are down in the 'no further damage' stage, then I'll start adding SOME of the currently-forbidden foods (like eggs, nuts and cheese) back in.  However, I'll be gluten-free forever, whether the AIP diet works or not.  There's just TOO much evidence that gluten caused the initial autoimmune response, and I can't afford a flare-up.


Google to the rescue!  Here's the poop on 'Uncle Sam's cereal', and yep, it's got gluten:

Uncle Sam High Fiber Breakfast Cereals
An American Original since 1908, Uncle Sam high fiber cereal has nourished families for over 100 years! With two varieties of Uncle Sam high fiber breakfast cereals to choose from, it's easy to find a flavor to love. Hard red winter wheat berries with flaxseeds make this a wholesome high fiber & heart-healthy cereal. Stay fit, full and feeling your best with Uncle Sam breakfast cereals featuring all the benefits of high fiber.

Hmmm... the flaxseed should be ground before eating to get the benefit, or else it passes through the alimentary canal virtually undigested.  If you like seeds in your poop, cool for you!  I grind my flax, but it spoils REALLY rapidly after that.  I grind what I'm going to use right at that moment.

Uncle Sam's 'gluten free' cereals are also forbidden, as they're either rice or corn based.  I'm not allowed ANY grains, although the Celiac crowd says that gluten-free rolled oats don't cause them any GI issues, and Celiacs are the Gold Standard for GI problems.  I've had a few bowls of GF oatmeal in the last 10 weeks or so.  Takes about 10 minutes to cook the Old Skool way.

Weight gain is normal, even when combined with vigerous exercise.

I'm not going to push diets on anyone.   I'll say what I do.   I eat a lot.   Small portions, but all day long........8 times a day, it might just be an apple, but I'm always putting something in my mouth.    I also drink lots of water.   I go potty once an hour I drink so much.   12 ounces in, 12 ounces out. ;)   Those two things combined keeps the metabolism going.   I exercise more than most people, which obviously helps, but my sister didn't exercise and would eat and drink similar to how I did and it would keep her weight down.

Lasix is a drug that can have severe side effects for some, as you note. My Grandfather acted like he had dementia, was goofy, when taking much of a dose at all, yet had issues with his limbs retaining liquid.

Alternate drugs required they be administered via drip, by medical personnel and in his case, being in a nursing home, that worked out for him, but only when really pressed by his Son, who threatened legal action... seems the shift change would bring on a new Doc, who would diagnose Lasix, then the next shift, GrandDad would be acting goofy, sent to the ER for a few days, and it kept happening.

This was a while ago and I believe there are now 'self injected' alternates to Lasix that can be prescribed ,and you can be taught to self administer a few times daily... same effect, but no dizzy/goofy reaction.

Ask the doc.

Where is the savings?  Finally, you look really silly following the herd in long lines for petro.  Go get your gas at 3:00 a.m.  I promise there won't be anyone there...

I don't ever recall my Mom taking first day of school pictures of myself or my brothers. After the first day of school in a new school when Mom would walk us to school or to where the bus would pick us up, it would be -- you know where to go, don't be late.  ;D

I picked up a head cold from someone at work Friday morning.  Friday afternoon my throat was a little scratchy, no other symptoms until Saturday when the thick mucous and "my face feels funny" nonsense started.  I got on it right away with Zinc lozenges and Benadryl, so here this evening (Sunday) it's mostly under control.  I'll have to back off on the Benadryl tomorrow so I can drive, but at least I don't have the free-flowing snot thing going on.  :D

Nothing earth-shattering like the two recent hurricanes, but hey, it's MY nose that's trying to turn into a Greco-Roman fountain!

If I were a criminal defence attorney, I'd be the poorest one out there. First question I would ask the potential client is -- Did you do it?  If they answer yes, I'd walk. Especially in cases such as yours.

I know that everybody deserves a good defence. However, that does not mean it would have to be me.

Crazy story...  I am sick and tired of arguments about NFL players taking a knee, so I decided to take a break from political stuff and visit a car club page that I frequent.  These are mainly photos of beaters listed by balding middle aged dudes with beer guts, and a pleasant escape.

So anyway, this dude posts a photo that upsets the moderator, who proceeds to browbeat him in ALL CAPS SHOUTING THAT IS COMPLETELY DISPROPORTIONAL TO THE OFFENDING POST.  So I tell the mod...

(https://i.giphy.com/media/krhW9yWEI0x0Y/200_s.gif)

So now the mod turns on me.  Apparently I am now suggesting thread chaos, dogs and cats living together, sex with your cousin, etc... And he invites other members to comment.  So now I'm getting private messages and reply alerts... I'm accused of friendship with the OP (I have no idea who he is), we are in collaboration! And it's not even 9 a.m.!

Nobody needs this drama, so I unjoined the group.  Ah ha!  Now there is blood in the water, so I start getting all kinds of shit in my mailbox.  So I had to block the group, the mod, and his lynch mob.  But not before I noticed he posted a photo of the car he was buying for his wife, which is a violation of the forum's rules.  Not a shit was given.  Fuck!  

I went out and worked in the yard all day.  Nice solitary activity.  Came back inside, and they've been sending me messages for hours.  Who the fuck are these people?

And no one has commented on the fact that there was a likely terrorist attack in Edmonton, Alberta on Saturday evening (likely because while the putz had an ISIS flag in his car, motive has not yet been finalized. We're kinda funny that way up here in Canada. We actually have to have a more than circumstantial link before the authorities will lay a terror related charge.).

First, the guy drives by Commonwealth Stadium while a CFL game is being played and runs over a traffic control barricade and a police officer. Then, he jumps out of his car, rushes the police officer and stabs him a number of times. The whole time the cop is being attacked, he covers his weapon to make sure the bad guy doesn't get it. The guy then runs away, leaving his car (with the registration documents left in the car -- so now they know who this putz is) behind. The cop is taken to hospital, treated and sent home -- sore but otherwise physically OK.

4 hours later, at a Check-Stop (looking for drunk drivers), a U-Haul van is stopped. The police officer who is interviewing the driver recognizes the name on the driver's license as the same as what was left behind in the car at Commonwealth Stadium. When this cop calls for backup, the U-Haul van drives away. It heads towards Jasper Avenue (main street in downtown Edmonton). At high speeds, the driver tries to run down pedestrians, hitting 4, before the police execute a tactical maneuver to flip the van on its side and end the episode. They break the windshield (I guess the guy isn't getting his damage deposit back), toss in a stun grenade and then Taser the guy to disable him.

The bad guy is a 30 year old Somali refugee who came to Canada in 2012 after having been ordered deported to Somalia by a US judge. Apparently, his stay in an ICE facility in San Diego was going to be too long, so he was released and the disappeared from US authorities. He came to Canada, crossed legally into our country and claimed refugee status, which was granted. His application raised no red flags. In 2015, he was investigated for having expressed radical thoughts. However, thoughts are not illegal in Canada and he was let go. He was deemed to be no threat.

Now the good news. This guy, as I described, is a putz. The football game was well in progress when he arrived at the stadium. There were very few people outside the stadium. Had he waited until the end of the game, he could have done much more damage. AND, it was military appreciation night at the game. He could have made a huge political statement had he waited.

As for the U-Haul van attack on Jasper Avenue. Thankfully, it was kind of early (just after midnight). Again, had he waited until the bars closed, there would have been way more people on the streets. Or, he could have gone down to Whyte Avenue on the south side where there would have been more people (way more bars down there than downtown). Whyte Avenue may have been his ultimate destination had he not been stopped at the Check-Stop but I'll never know.

Thankfully, the human damage was only 5 people injured. And, there were no firearms used. I would hate to see how many more might have been injured had there been bullets flying around.

Anyways, that's what I woke up to on Sunday morning. I knew nothing of this until I got to work on Sunday because I was too busy getting laid.

This actually ruined my day on Monday, but I consumed a whole bottle of tequila last night, so did not get to post about it.

Payday at my office is on the 1st and 15th.  If either of those falls on a weekend or holiday, we get paid at the *end* of the next business day.  This means it is possible to be paid two or three days late, which isn't a problem, unless you owe rent or a car payment, as 99% of our employees do.

So 9 a.m. on the 16th, our dickwad boss sends out an email that his "accountant" is out of town, so our paychecks "may not" reflect what we earned, because he is going to have to estimate what we are owed.  Vegas rules are *always* in the house's favor.  Translation:  he didn't make payroll, so he is going to steal enough from everyone to make up the difference.  Bullshit alert:  he doesn't have an "accountant."  He does payroll with Quicken Books and hand writes every paycheck in the office.

The 16th also happened to be "Boss's Day" so naturally the staff made cupcakes, and hand circulated a card for signature.  Around noon, an email went out to meet in the break room for cupcakes, so we could give dickwad his Boss's Day card.

What did he do?  He told the office manager there would be no Boss's Day celebration, because it had not been scheduled on the firm calendar "as required by the employee handbook."  He gathered his shit and promptly left the office for no reason.  Translation:  Having just fucked everyone in the ass, he didn't have the balls to take a greeting card in front of everyone, so he pulled out his cock and pissed on their cupcakes too.

Everyone left early.  Fucker.

This reminds me of a time not too long ago when I sat down and consumed enough single malt scotch and weed to make myself really sick.  By really sick, I mean I was throwing up, rolling on the ground barely able to walk and hung over for about 24 hours.  It really put a cloud on a lovely shopping trip to LL Bean and my evening sojourn at the adult sauna, still able to find a partner for satisfaction though.  Finally, it left me so tired even 24 hours later that I had to really work at driving the 45 minutes from the sauna to where I was staying at the time.

Yes, that was a bad day I created for myself.  LOL

WOW.
These type of things effect everybody differently, but that was uncalled for.


What ruined my morning......Driving to work today I didn't notice my gas gauge.   About 10 miles from work, I look down and see I have 7 miles to empty.   Southbound I-75 is shut down for a year south of Detroit and the route I take is in very bad neighborhoods.   My stomach started turning over.   I decided to chance it.   I made it, but by the time I got to work, I was so worked up I had to run to the restroom.   and I'll bet reading that just ruined your day
I've already had two coworkers volunteer to go get me some gas at lunch.  So that's good.

She was 18 in the sex scene (she talks about it in a very funny/cute interview somewhere on the www) she was a little older in the picture ... Which, for all intents and purposes, is a very nice picture of a very beautiful young woman.  No argument there.
And I have zero scrupules thinking about actresses in a sexual way.  
EDIT Removed possibly inappropriate comment.
It just 'feels' wrong to me with the Arya Stark character Maisie plays in GoT... It's kinda hard to explain.  I have a soft spot for Arya I guess :)

Ingredients: Assam Black Tea, Spices (Cinnamon, Ginger, Black Pepper, Cardamom, Chinese Star Anise, Cloves and Nutmeg), Roasted Chicory, Espresso, Natural Flavor and Vanilla Bean

Well, fuck me senseless!  I've looked all over town this last week and there isn't a box of Celestial Teahouse 'Dirty Chai' tea bags to be had for any amount of money.  Sprouts, Whole Foods, Natural Grocers... hell, even fuckin' TARGET and WALLY WORLD say "No love, no joy"...

(https://i.imgur.com/135LkhN.png)


Oh, I can get their pre-mixed Dirty Chai Latte (Liquid Concentrate) at a number of places, but I'll be fucked if I'm paying 5 to 6 times higher price for poorly-filtered tap water plus funny chemicals when all I want is tea bags...

(https://i.imgur.com/OVOkJNM.png)
Ingredients: Filtered water, cane sugar, brewed black tea, caramel color, espresso, natural flavor, honey, citric acid, cinnamon, xanthan gum, clove, cardamom and ginger

No thanks, keep your overpriced pre-mix; there's too much weird shit in it that I can't have on this diet, so I just finished brewing my own batch (https://imgur.com/RYdFu8O) from scratch with fresh ground spices.  I didn't hit the recipe perfectly the first time, but I got close enough that I'm happy.  I guess I'll have to stop by the Patel Brothers store this next week and stock up on a shitload of spices for DIY Masala Chai from now on.  For the 'latte' part I'm using the powdered coconut milk (https://www.amazon.com/Native-Forest-Coconut-Powder-Ounce/dp/B00QIVB19Y) that I found a few months ago.  It works pretty well, it's half the price of canned or boxed milk,  AND it doesn't go bad in a couple of weeks.  It's also got less weird shit in it than the boxed coconut milks do.

(https://i.imgur.com/vSdIBvC.jpg)

Oh, by the way, CHAI means TEA in Hindi, so both of those boxes shown above are proudly proclaiming TEA TEA with the words "CHAI TEA" on the front.  Someone needs to edumcate the folks at Celestial.  Hell, hire an immigrant from India... there has to be ONE person that can help their advertising department.  The correct term for what they're selling is "Chai Masala" which means "Spiced Tea" in Hindi.

While my boyfriend went golfing with his friends, on a 34 degree rainy day  :roll: , my niece and I went to visit my brother in law.    The Lions were losing 10 points to 0 and everybody was so upset that the staff considered turning the television off.   Luckily they made a comeback.

A man I met there, who visits his dad every Sunday as we do, is a Michigan State fan and he was very down about the loss they took on Saturday.   He's very excited about the Spartan basketball season now.

Money isn't everything. It can't give you true love. I find that is what a lot of us are needing... more love and less hate and negativity.

Sitting in the ICU with my friend.  He posted about ending it, and over 200 people responded.  It wasn’t for a lack of love.  I think it is more from a uniquely negative perception of people, events, and your own self.  I can’t climb in his head to experience his world view.  

Most of the suicides I have known fall into three categories.  1.  Mental heath issues: depression, bi-polar disorder, schizophrenia.  2.  Terminal illness, or 3.  Scandal, bankruptcy, criminal prosecutions.

He’s going to have a psychiatric workup before discharge, so hopefully we can figure out what he needs going forward.

That sucks. Sometimes the attempt is a cry for help. My ex made 2 attempts about 28 or so years ago. One of them while in the hospital getting treatment for several mental health issues. And one at home on Mothers' Day with the kids in the house. All I could do was call 911 and hold her until she was taken to the hospital. I couldn't go with her because I had to stay with my 2 daughters who were 3 and 1 at the time.

Afterwards, all I could do was look after the kids and provide as much support as I could. 28 years later, she still has issues but to my knowledge hasn't attempted to kill herself since. I think that despite the emotional toll it took on her, the kids coming with me when we divorced helped by taking the pressures of parenthood away so that she could get "better".

Do what you can for your loved one. Be sure to take care of yourself first.

Mrs JBRG and I made the decision last night to take our oldest cat to the vet when she gets home after work today to have the old gal put down.

Max is almost 18 and has been with us since she was a kitten. Max came into our home the same day we had Mrs' cat down (her Pet Monster). Max has been the little sister to one cat (Homer was put down a month after we got Max) and the big sister to 2 other cats and 3 dogs.

Max has been giving us signs that it's time for a while. She has lost so much weight over the past couple of years that she is just skin and bones. She has gone deaf, has diminished eye sight, doesn't clean herself anymore and, when possible, doesn't go downstairs to use the litter box.

The next 8 hours or so are going to be hard for me but in the end, Max will be out of pain and in the spiritual company of Monster (whom she replaced in hour home), Homer (whom I took in because a friend was allergic), Fitz dog (a rescue dog who had medical issues that could not be controlled) and Red Dog (old age).

Every time he visits, he swears it will be his last, and he asks me to file a motion to modify (no overnight visits).  Every Monday after (today), he says “It would be more trouble than it is worth, and I don’t want to put you through that.”  This has been a recurring pattern for at least three years.  The trouble now is that she lives with boyfriend and a new baby, and they don’t even have a bed for him to sleep on.  They fight constantly, while he sleeps on the sofa, and waits in line for the bathroom.

I work as a security guard at a plastics manufacturing plant. We make the little white pellets that are used to make what ever final product you can think of. And, we make it out of highly volatile stuff - ethylene, propylene, vinyl acetate, etc. Our site isn't big and we are currently undergoing a maintenance shut down on one of the production units. So, I've got about 50 extra people on site. And because we are not a physically huge site, every body gets from place to place on foot. The speed limit for vehicles is 15 km/h (about 10 mph).

Anyways, two semi trailer trucks pull up to the gate to make a pick up. The first driver comes into my office and registers as he is supposed to. I inform him of the speed limit and give him directions to where he is going. After the first guy goes through the gate, I start to close it and the second guy just come screaming through. I manage to stop the gate from closing before it got ripped off its mount. Then, the second driver continues to follow the first guy at a speed between 30 and 50 km/h (I have to estimate because I don't have a radar gun). 

I got the driver sent back to the security office where I tore him 4 new assholes. He was so focussed on following the first truck that he says he didn't see the stop sign nor the speed limit or no cell phones allowed signs. His claim was that it was his first day on the job and was nervous and eager to do a good job. The truth of the matter is that this was his first time at our site (I learned this from the shipper who loaded his truck). Our company has launched an investigation and have asked the driver's employer to inform us of what corrective/disciplinary actions they will be taking.

I take the safety of the guys who work on my site very seriously. I mentioned to somebody who saw the incident that I tore the guy 4 new assholes and he said he only saw one asshole -- about 5'6" tall.

I relate this story because of the Tuesday mention in the previous post. For me, the worst day of the week is never Monday like it is for so many people. No, IF a day of the week is going to go to shit, it will be Tuesday. And yesterday was Tuesday.

I have represented the victims of injury accidents, and their families, for over 30 years.  I will tell you that NO ONE goes to work thinking "this will be the day I kill someone."  Everyone has good intentions, but people get complacent, get hurried, get distracted, and then all it takes is a nanosecond for hell to come visit.

You did the right thing JBRG, and the truth is that safety is EVERYONE's responsibility.  I can't tell you how many times an investigation undercovers prior suspicions or complaints about someone that resulted in NO ACTION being taken.  And the end result is, tragically, a catastrophic injury or death.  THEN everyone gets serious about remedial training and safety toolbox meetings.  Why not before?

My neighbor of 18 years who had helped me so many times more than I ever helped him passed away the day after Thanksgiving.  One of his sons came over and told me on Sunday after I had returned from being away.

I went to the funeral today.  By my estimate, there were somewhere between 300 to 400 people there.  I had never been to any funeral where so many people showed up.  By the testimonies of those who spoke, he was a far more remarkable man than I had ever dreamed.  In all those 18 years of living next to him, I suddenly realized I didn't know him at all, and I find that very sad and regrettable.

He and his wife had 7 children I watched grow up.  I confess I had trouble keeping track of which kid was which and never really got their names straight.  All of them spoke one after the other at the funeral.  They made fun of the fact there are 7 of them, announcing things like 'I'm number 6.'  Yesterday I nearly made the same sort of joke when I went next door to find out the funeral location.  One son came out to speak to me.  He told me his name and said, 'I'm the middle one.'  I nearly replied, 'There are 7 of you.  Most of you are middle ones.'

In a strange sad coincidence, I found out his birth year was the same as my wife's, so they both were born and passed away the same year.

When I pulled up to pay, the parking attendant just opened the gate and waved me through, I didn't even need to pay.  So, I really didn't need the stupid ticket.  UGH   I'm so sad.

This is my social media, well here and two other sites.  When I get asked about ‘friending’ me on FB, I smile and happily tell them I’m not on FB.

This is my social media.


Mine also.  The comment was a warning, if I seem like a bigger asshole than usual.

I tire of the shiny happy people on FB.  Everything is vacation of a lifetime, joyful family reunions, and look!  Handmade crafts I put together for the holidays!!!

Bullocks.  They forget I have known many of them for 40 years or longer.  The divorces, the trips to rehab, the mental breakdowns.  Nobody posts about that shit on FB.  LOL.

I periodically get sick as fuck with social media, and this is one of those weeks.  It’s like going to your neighbor’s house when his sink is full of dirty dishes, and there’s crap everywhere.  I mean, even the pet photos are pissing me off.

I got sick of it 6 years ago and never went back.  Part of the reason is as you described..."look at me, look at my wonderful kids, they're so wonderful, I'm so blessed."    BS, your kid just was arrested on DUI at the age of 17 after putting his car up the rear end of a garbage truck when he was supposed to be in school. 
I was at a bad time in my life when I quit the facebook site and don't miss it.   I log into my sisters account occasionally to peek around.  The posts to her page she would hate, all her friends are VERY religious.  She made me promise not to remove her page though.   She took to calling it Faithbook.


I'm on twitter only to follow people and news.  I've never twittered once.

Yuck!  I don't know how anyone can eat that stuff.  The smell of steaming cauliflower makes me gag.  Kale is bitter and nasty, even with lots of strongly acidic salad dressing.  I have yet to find a way of making quinoa edible other than drowning it in butter, and that isn't exactly healthy.

I heard about the cauliflower hype in this thread... I don't get it.  What's so bloody new about cauliflower? As a kid, my granny used to serve me that stuff atleast once a week when in season (and fuck cauliflower rice, mine was drowned in cheese sauce and served with bratwurst and mashed potatoes  :emot_thdrool: ). 
I like quinoa just because it's something different to eat.  Unfortunately, given the fact that it's such a hype food, it's also like 5 or 6 times more expensive than rice.  And I don't like it that much.
I didn't even know kale was a hype food.  Where did that come from?  To the best of my knowledge people here been eating kale since we learned about farming.  Quite yummie though... cut up and mashed together with potatoes and served with a few thick slices of bacon or (the dutch way) smoked sausage.  And of course a good tablespoon of dijon mustard on the side.

I only know about this trend from an article I read recently.  I have not seen cauliflower presented in a restaurant in any way since, certainly not in an unusual way.  I like cauliflower, and my main interest in the article was not what trendy things were being done with it, but that cauliflower was getting expensive.

I think I heard something about it being sliced thick and as some sort of burger substitute.

Damn, I love talking about food, but this seems like we're in the wrong thread for that.

I got up to watch the televised implosion of the Detroit Lions former home, the Pontiac Silverdome.

About 5 seconds after witnessing the explosion on the television, I could hear it outside.   We're 12 miles away.   Pretty Cool.  

But, the stadium didn't come down.  We almost went over to watch it, glad we didn't. #ImplosionFail

Glad watching things getting blown up isn't just a guy thing.  It's even more fun when it doesn't work.

We had a very old bridge across the Mississippi here that was deemed unsafe finally.  Trucks banned and the city busses had to stop at each end, passengers get off and be shuttled to the other side in smaller vans. 

When it came time to blow the bridge, after building half of the new bridge (2 lanes) the job was set for early AM, when still dark out.  The changes went off and only a few pieces of the old iron fell.  The bridge was still there!  They interviewed the daughter of the bridge designer, who was in her 80s.  She got a kick out of it and said her dad always built things to last.  They ended up taking it apart piece by piece using cranes on barges. :emot_laughing:

A sad follow up was when they started to build the second half of the new bridge. They had the supporting arches up and were pouring cement when a loud crack was heard.  All activity was stopped and the foreman and another worker went out to see what was wrong.  The whole damn thing fell apart, killing the worker and injuring the foreman.  They finally got it right the second attempt. :facepalm:

Got word last night that our little four legged friend, Ruby is gone.  She was a Basset Hound my wife started taking care of when she was a pup of 9 months old.  Wife would get her and take her down to the yard of another Basset puppy and they'd play, poop and pee.  After a few months wife learned of the dog park and her car became and still is "The Basset Limo"  The Bassets were taken to and from the park, Mon - Fri.
After several years, wife broke both ankles one winter and the Basset duties were taken over by me.  Also, each month she'd dress 'em up for whatever holiday it was that month and I'd take pictures.  At the end of the year I'd make a calendar with the pictures and we'd give it to the owners.
She got diabetes a couple years ago and we'd give her the shots when owners were gone.  When on vacation, wife moved into their house to take care of Ruby.

Last summer they sold their house.  They wanted to build a new home and ended up in a long stay hotel from Mid July to just last Thursday.  Took Ruby to the dog park along with the other Basset that day and after she went to the other Bassets house for the day.  We took her to the new home that night.  She seemed just fine.

Sunday she got real sick and "Dad" took her to  emergency vet clinic.  After six hours of tests, he called the wife and they agreed her "time" had come.  It was just last night she was able to call and tell me about it.  No kids, so she was their child.  With our close association for nearly 11 years, we thought of her as part of our family

Rest in peace Ruby.

My ex mother-in-law called frantic that a con artist had called her claiming to be a lawyer who needed her credit card number to post bail for my son, her grandson.  He told her that he had been in an injury accident, and sent 3 people to the hospital.  A few phone calls by me confirmed 1. there was no accident, 2. there was no arrest, and 3. my son was at work blissfully unaware of anything.

You know how old women are.  Jeezus.  Gave me a scare too.  Be careful out there.

Set at 6 p.m. on a rainy Monday.

Thirty people.  No alcoholic drinks served.

He bought 6 appetizers, the had them cut into tiny pieces.  We were allowed a tiny paper plate to “help ourselves.”  Didn’t even put out chips and salsa.

The meal consisted of 8 entrees dissected the same way.  Everyone got three or four bites of something.

The event (I refuse to call it a party) was over by 8.  We had margaritas on a credit card, so hey, I should know.  We were the last to leave.

He did give all employees a small bag of pistachios.  No Christmas bonus check.  Even the asshole boss in the Vacation movie gave a jelly of the month club.  LOL.

No social host liability in Texas, unless you serve alcohol to an underaged person.  If you cater your event, and use a TABC licensed server, practically zero risk.  If the server gives so called “impairment training” to their workers, even the server can avoid liability.

Most places give drink tickets and limit consumption on the company dime to two or three drinks. But I can’t recall an office party that was dry.  Maybe in Utah, but not in Texas.

WAY worse than forgetting my drugs:  I'm killing bedbugs today, and took a break to look up some other relevant info on the little bastards since the info I found from a British researcher flat didn't work.  He'd said that they die when their temperature exceeds 104F.  The ones in Dallas sure didn't!  I took my bedroom up to 110 and held it there for 12 hours, no joy.  What I found from U Virginia, U Florida and OSU all said 111 to 113F, and 120F is faster.  Well, the two space heaters I had would only get it to 110, so I bought another one.  With three, surface temps in the room are 120 to 128, and I'm finding dead ones now (3 hours later).  I found some good bedbug info-videos I was going to convert and upload for y'all, but my old version of Super video converter wouldn't play, and insisted that I upgrade it.  I did so, and unchecked ALL of the 'optional' software it wanted to install.  Still, something ELSE that it installed bolted in a rootkit, and it took my networking down.  I'm typing this on my multimedia server 'cos my main box is fucking TOAST until I restore the backup from last year.



edit:  Well, worse and better.  I tried to restore from my backup, and it flat refused to write to the boot partition, even though the Ghost recovery file CAME from that partition, and all of the parameters still matched exactly.  I thought I was fucked... my backup won't load... I'm gonna have to reinstall Win7 from scratch.  On a whim, I booted Strelec PE on a thumbdrive, browsed to c:\Users\{my user name}\AppData\local\ (where I knew the rootkit was hiding) and deleted ALL of the directories that were created this afternoon.  Then I rebooted, and voila! my network is up again.   I still have problems: the network diagnostics abort with an unspecified error 'cos I ripped the rootkit out the hard way.  However, networking is working, so I'm good for now.

BTW, if you need a handy boot USB to fix odd issues, I recommend Sergei Strelec.

A little late in posting, since it was a few days ago, but what the hell.

I met a girl before Christmas, the first really since my wife passed away (at least the first that was not on-line).  There was some talk of going out to dinner.  We exchanged a few texts, mostly about her safe travel out of town for the holidays and Merry Christmas on the 25th.  And then abruptly on the 27th she sent a message that said she decided she was absolutely not interested in bringing anyone into her life as a friend or otherwise.

I was in a bit of a funk after that.  I hadn't realized how much I was looking forward to taking a woman out to dinner until the possibility vanished, hence the ruined day.

Yesterday I had a late lunch and decided to go to a strip club on the way home.  6 hours and $200 later I felt a whole lot better.  Getting all that female attention did wonders for my mood.  I know that attention had very little to do with me and everything to do with the pile of singles I had on the bar, but it didn't matter.

I stayed long enough to see the shift change and meet about 15 girls.  I think I had been to a strip club exactly once during my 18 year marriage, and that was only because I had walked back my hotel after a concert, and it was the only place I found open where I could get a drink.

Several girls last night asked if I wanted a lap dance, the first phrasing it as, "Do you want to play with me?"  I eventually did get a lap dance from a very pretty Asian girl.  After I asked if she typically worked Saturdays, she actually offered me her number to text to see if she was working (how very enterprising).  I turned down the offer for her number saying I'm sure I'll be back and see you again.  I'm not sure when or if I really will go back, but yesterday was just what I needed.  Did I just post this in the wrong thread?

Nope, the perfect place.  You mentioned you disappointment at the beginning, which I'm sorry to hear about.  Get back on that horse.  It's tough starting a new relationship, especially around the holidays.  If you liked her, give it another week or so for the holiday craziness to calm down and send her a text offering dinner again, but don't push it if she says no, just move on.

Noticing several ancient threads, like Gina’s “what celebrity would you like to fuck?” And my own “what I looked at the last time I masturbated” have been “unpinned.”  I think times are changing (again). We have a lot of new member activity, which is good.  Unfortunately, almost all of it in in the pedo subjects, which is creepy.

Wishing everyone a happy new year.  And a great 2018.

Thanks for caring Jules.

The brush off was pretty definitive and made me feel like any further texting (or a call) would not be welcome.  I did reply I was disappointed and that if she changed her mind (again) to contact me.  I'm finding it hard to figure out what was going on in her head and over-analyzing.  She was a little quirky, which is a polite way of saying she possibly has minor mental issues.  She was however very kind, so I didn't have those warning bells go off that you get when we guys or gals meet someone we suspect might be psycho.



And I'm glad for you she actually made your holidays a little less intolerable  :hug:

Ugh.

Was a story on RU with an obvious pedo title.  People were joining only to read that story, so Lois fixed it requiring 5 posts to view it.  Then these people made throw away posts like:
1
2
3
4
5

I believe Lois went in and manually deleted all those nothing posts.  The story has faded well back now and not easy to find, where I hope it stays.

Football.

The guys are all watching Michigan football, followed by the Rose bowl, followed by an Alabama game.  It was requested I make some chili for today.  It should be ready in a bit.  We'll eat then I'm laying my head in Mark's lap for a nap while they watch their games.
My brother-in-law, mom and daddy are here.  Mom is leaving after eating.  There is a good chance they're all staying the night because the games are running late and they're all putting away the beers a little too quickly.   

I have to work tomorrow.

Thus the reason Mrs JBRG and I are researching a move to more temperate climes. After a week of -25C daytime highs and windchills in the the -35C to -40C range, we are looking harder at better locations than north-central Alberta. Hmmmmm. The south Okanagan valley is looking pretty good. Milder temperatures and OMG, the wine.

Waking up alive. Discovering when I looked to the side display I am still a "new" pervert. My wife wants a divorce but not yet because first she has to loose weight, feel better about herself, get a job, informed me if I ever left her for another woman she shove it so far up my ass that my tonsils would hurt. But she is always telling me I am her best friend and she's only looking out for me. It would take pages to explain everything about our disfunction and how I look to the new day that waits with some fear, some happiness and some dread. My mother passed away one year ago and as a Christmas present my Dad told me I was not wanted in the first place and if my mother wasn't so drunk that night she would have gotten the birth control device installed properly and no little swimmers would have made it passed the blockade (he was former military) but that wasn't the worst of it, we were stationed down south and she couldn't get an abortion. I laughed at him and said well at least I'm not my brother....he's gotta go thru life with you wishing he was a girl, ha. I should really delete all this shit. I mean two broken Kurig's? SHit this is nothing compared to how the heavens have to align for two Kurig's to be broken at the almost the exact same time. What did you do for that Karma?? Well god bless my old man, he made me a mean SOB when I had to be a mean SOB to survive and bless my wife because she made me a lot better person when I needed to be a better person. Happy new year 8)


Spin off of "What made your day today?"


So, what ruined my day today?

My Kuerig broke - pump quit.  No coffee for my drive to work.
Get to work.   The Kuerig is broken - pump quit.  
WTH, is it national Kuerig break down day?

Waking up alive is always a good thing.   People have all sorts of difficulty in life.  Some days are better than others.  It's how you handle it, and how you fight to overcome the obstacles put in your path, that defines you.   You have the chance to make things better, you always do and always will.  No matter how low things might seem, you can always fight to make it better.  Never stop fighting.  Never surrender.

Yep, pretty petty in comparison to a lot of things posted here since the topic was created a year and a half ago.   But I've had some pretty terrible things happen to me also that I haven't shared here.  I'm sure many others have also.  This topic isn't a place to compare who has it worst, or to belittle others.  It is just a place to come and vent a little bit.......to blow off some steam.  Not every post needs a response, but if you want to offer words of support or encouragement you are always welcome to.
I hope things get better for you, Pat.  I also hope each day you wake up, you and your wife find happiness together.  I'm happy you joined KB and contribute to our forum.

Broken tooth.  Feels like someone is stabbing me with an ice pick.  It is an old wisdom tooth, so the dentist says extraction is a better option than reconstruction.  I’m popping amoxicillin and OxyContin in the meantime.  Awake for the fourth night in a row.

You likely already know this, but please be extremely careful with oxycontin! As has been widely reported, it's extremely addictive.

Several years ago I had an extreme case of kidney stones and the urologist prescribed hydrocodone, a similar drug to oxycontin. It worked amazingly, the pain began to disappear only a few minutes after taking it, and it made me feel euphoric.

Then I passed the kidney stones (gratefully, without having to resort to a medical procedure), yet I desperately wanted to finish off the bottle of hydrocodone, recalling how wonderful I felt after taking it. Fortunately, I had enough sense to give the bottle with the remaining pills back to him once everything was back to normal. All this helped me to understand both the addictive power of these medications and, as a result, the reason why we're currently in the midst of an opioid crisis.

24-year-old woman dies after being struck by stray bullet in Buckeye

Why is there anywhere in the world that just shooting a gun in the air is okay.  This is ridiculous.  This is not okay.  'Asshole's' is right. 
She was a beautiful person who died needlessly.  She was full of love and life and it was all taken away when she was out doing what she loved.  Her poor loved ones.

From yesterday -- freezing rain resulting in slippery sidewalks. Did pretty good walking the dog in the afternoon until I got home. Then damn near did the splits walking into my own garage. No harm. Spread some salt. Waited for it to work then scraped down to the concrete. An hour or so later, the condo complex's contractor came around spreading gravel.

Terrible news.  I stayed home on Friday.  Hope it’s only a cold.  The flu has been running through the ranks in Texas.  Hope you are feeling better soon.

Football.   Only one more week, thank god.  So tired of it.   Love having everybody here but need the darn tv turned off.

But I'm looking forward to next week.  Love a good superbowl party.  This is at a friend of Mark's and he says it's a good time every year.  I'll be meeting some of his friends for the first time.

Dr. Nassar of Michigan State University and the Olympic Team doctor on trial for molesting young athletes.   I've been listening to accusers being allowed to confront the abuser is court.   It's so sad.

Watched some more victims confront Dr. Nassar today.  :(

One of the things that came out today is that MSU is still sending bills to one of the victims for services provided by Dr. Nassar..... for appointments she was abused at.  #MSUfail

I overheard a couple of the guys talking about the superbowl this morning.   I said, "I will be so glad when it is over on Sunday, because I can't listen to this much longer."
I was then informed the game is on Feb 4th.  Wait, WHAT?  I thought the Superbowl was this Sunday.  I still have to listen to these non-athlete-never-played-football co-workers analyze the game for another week.   OMG.   MAKE IT STOP.  You keep repeating the same blabber.  Seriously, how much more can be said.

And now they're talking about the game outside my office just to irritate me.

I am looking forward to a party we are going to though.  Friends of Mark.  Many I haven't met before.   He brought me home a gift last night.  A Patriots jersey with Brady on the back to wear to the party.   He knows I like Tom Brady.

I saw you post before about it being this weekend.  I didn’t have the heart to tell you it’s always two weeks after the last playoffs.  Hopefully he won’t want to watch the Pro Bowl that is this Sunday.

Here in Minneapolis we're deluged with stories about the preparations for the big game in town.  Glad we never go downtown anymore.  Many streets already closed.  Massive crowds expected (many drunk and obnoxious).

Fifteen years ago, wife and I did a couple hours work putting food in the private suites before the Vikings game.  Then came the Super Bowl and we got to work through the game incase more food was ordered.  It wasn't as crazy back then and was a lot of fun seeing all the celebs, TV crews with massive trailers packed with electronics outside and all the vendors hustling about.

It seems to get more out of control every year as each city tries to top the previous.  Millions are being spent here to get the city ready, mostly from corporate sponsors, thank God, not too much in tax dollars.  Will be staying close to home that weekend.

I didn't know it was in Minnesota, MS.  I know how you feel.  When it was in Detroit, it was crazy downtown.  I had so much fun.   Not sure I'd be up for it anymore.  I was 30 then.  13 years ago.

I had season Viking tickets and Twins tickets, when I lived in Minneapolis.  My office was on Park, just a short walk to the Metrodome.  Those were the days... skipping work and watching Kirby Puckett.  Mind you, I don’t have 5’ snowdrifts in my yard in Texas, but I miss my Minnesota friends.

Arrived at work to discover a key employee quit after 15 years of service.  No two week notice or anything.  Guess who will be picking up the slack.  :(

And first thing tomorrow I get to figure out how to generate W2's, W3's and a bunch of other tax stuff.   I need to learn Quickbooks very quickly.   

In fairness to our employee that quit, she's been going through a rough time.  Her 18 year old daughter died about 5 years ago in a car accident.  She kept at this job to help keep her busy.   She's just tired of it now.....the getting up early, the yucky commute.  She wants to spend time with her friends.  Her husband has a good job and she doesn't need to work.  I could have used a couple weeks training though.  She told me to call her anytime.

Spent the day getting software on my computer and moving a bunch of stuff from her office to mine.   

Right after lunch the bs started with everybody clamoring for her vacated office.   And one of the asshat partners suggested knocking the wall down to make his office bigger.  ugh

Heard from a long time member on my site whose wife has been battling cancer for years, she has just gone to hospice and given about two weeks.  I lost my wife last year, so I got some idea on how it hurts.  At least my loss was sudden, and not lingering while I watched helplessly.

I heard from him today, and he’s a widower now like me.  I don’t even know what to say to him.

It’s been 8 months since my wife passed, and I still get the nightmares with one as recently as last week.  You’d think my nightmares would be about finding her like I did face down in the kitchen with her head cracked open, but no they come in two types:

Type one is she’s dying and I keep saving her just to have her dying again for different reasons over and over until I wake up and yell ‘Fuck!’

Type two nightmares are she really isn’t dead, and woke some place like the coroners.  I just didn’t know for some period of time.  I had this type last week, where I was in trouble at work because they thought I faked her death to get paid leave.  It was so damned real, when I woke I looked at the picture of her tombstone on my phone as a sanity check.  I still yell ‘Fuck’ with these nightmares, it’s just delayed.

Anyway, I know he has a long road of dealing with it ahead of him.

Unfortunately not.   I've been hibernating from exercising.  I will not run in the cold, and I hated the treadmill.

I've got an empty house tonight so I just put in 40 minutes on the treadmill and 20 minutes of dumbells, kettleballs, pushups and lunges.   When I wake up Wednesday morning, every muscle in my body will be screaming at me.

There's been talk the last couple weeks, but today it's official.  Tomorrow will be my last day at the dog park with my buddy Gus, the Basset Hound.  He's somewhere around 12 years old and last couple of years has had an inflamed disk that affects his back legs.  They've had him on anti-inflammatories and he's ok, tho' occasionally a bit wobbly. 

He loves the dog park.  He greets all the other dogs and people, walking up with his head held high and tail up in the air wagging like crazy.  He's one of the most popular dogs at the dog park and it's the highlight of  his day.  He loves to run and chase after other dogs, even with his back problems.  At home, "Mom" says his back legs go out from under him, and she admits her hardwood and tile floors are slippery. 

I've offered to keep him on a leash at the dog park, so he won't run.  He'd still see his human and canine friends and continue to make new friends.  But alas, NO.  I have to wonder if there's money problems as there was a divorce several month ago, so only one income plus support pmts.

I'm sure when her work gets in the way I'll be called upon to come walk him from time to time.

Yeah...I'm going to miss the dog park too.  So much fun watching the dogs at play and visiting with the other people. :(

I’m confused.  You have a dog(s) of your own, correct?  So you are losing Gus (for now), but not the dog park entirely, or is Gus your only reason to be at the park?

We recently lost our JRT, and were devastated.  Although it felt too soon, we acquired a pug puppy from friends.  Turned out to be a good decision.

We have cats, no dogs.  The two Bassets wife, then I took to the dog park were from two different neighbors.  Ruby and her people moved out of the area mid July and sadly she died the first of December, three days after moving into the new home they just built.  

There was a third Basset, when wife first started but her ppl started having kids. Dad became a stay at home dad and they didn't need a dog walker anymore, so we picked up Gus.  I took over when wife broke both ankles on an icy day at the dog park.  Nearly 12 years of Basset love'n.

Not my business, but how about a Basset of your own?

I was eating my bagel this morning when the little pug showed up and started licking the cream cheese off my plate.  I cried a little, because I always called our JRT my "bagel hound," because she loved a bite of bagel.

Which is to state the obvious.  You can't replace a beloved pet; however, the fact that you have been able to share love with a dog and bond in the past, is a pretty good indicator that you'll be able to do so again in the future.

Hah.  Can't imagine what the cats would do to me if I tried that. 

We're on our last two pets I think.  I hate the thought of my cats outliving me.  Unless we foster an old sick cat on it's way out, I'm just hoping to live to the end of my cats' combined 18 lives. :emot_laughing:

Dude,

1.  You're not that old.
2.  A puppy will put life in your years and add years to your life.
