Or better, depending on your sense of humor.
Has anyone ever ordered anything from Amazon overnight at around 9pm PST? I did that yesterday, and it said it would be here Friday (1 business day), it says that it's going to ship today, but I am starting to have my doubts.
MESSAGE BEGINS STOP
MESSAGE TO THE INTERNET STOP
SPEAK ALIVE STOP HEARTILY ANNOYED WITH MOTHER STOP
SHOULD BE DISCHARGED IN AN HOUR STOP
SEND CAT GIFS STOP
Wait, when is Speak not heartily annoyed with mother? That seems unnecessary when you're paying by the letter.
Be well, Speak~<3
And capitals use more megahurtz.
I've had overnight stuff ship from them at 1AM EST and arrive by 10 the same morning. Prime don't fuck around.
My partner and I are going to Atlanta for a quick weekend trip. Any recommendations on decent casual restaurants for a Saturday night? Not looking for something fancy or expensive. Thanks!
No but OMG HAVE FUNNNNNN~
YAY! Speak is out of the hospital and liking stuff. :)
Do we know our dogs a little TOO well when we can tell which one just had an accident on the carpet based on the spray pattern? We're like CSI:Dog Pee around here.
Uh-oh, am I gonna get in much trouble for not posting this in the macros thread?
Probably a temp-ban. See ya in a week!
Okay, I'm safely installed in a spare bed at Aaron's parents' place. The operation seems to have gone swimmingly; they told me they removed every bit of Stage 3 endometriosis they could find, lanced the multiple small cysts on each ovary, removed my appendix, and implanted a Mirena as a back-up plan. I'm drugged, drained, and dehydrated, with a very sore throat from the trach tube, but other than that, I seem to be doing very well.
Mom...I'll spoiler this rant, because it's quite long.
Yeah, how dare you fall victim to weeks of pain and agony - over Christmas no less - and then top it all off by pulling this stunt with the "hospital" and the "surgery" and everything. I mean really, can't you take time out of your scary medical ordeal and think of their needs for once?
Oh geez oh that is just ridiculous to have to deal with on top of everything else. Ye gods c'mere you *smishes*
Glad to hear that everything went well surgery-wise. I expect a full report on how the uterine turbocharger performs.
As for the rest, well, not to overstep the bounds of propriety (but I will anyway because hey, this is me) - your parents are perfect examples of passive-aggressive controlling asshats. It's one thing to step in to help out a family member in need - it's another to set terms when doing so. The former is charitable, the latter is extortion. Now, I may have been a bit insensitive and ill-timed with making jokes while you were having your internals become externals, but holy crap, those texts from your parents make me look like St Francis of Assisi in comparison.
Disappointed. Because obviously you get endometriosis and an inflamed appendix from your terrible lifestyle choices. Now they have to go back home and deal with the shame you have brought upon your family with your demonic baby-barracks. "You see those two? Their daughter's the Whore of Babylon." "Oh, and they seemed like such nice folks!"
LOOK WHAT YOU HAVE WROUGHT.
Don't forget the PCOS, which apparently unlike the endometriosis is not brought on or particularly aggravated by stress. It's just something that randomly kicks your ass.
Man, fuck propriety.
Speak, your mom is an evil cuntbag and your dad is a worthless shitstain.
Randomly kicks your ass if you've ANGERED THE LORD.
(I have no idea if Speak's parents are oppressively religious, but I'm now imagining her mother as the mom from Carrie.)
See, I was going to say that, but it just has so much more gravitas coming from Elyscape.
You're forgiven. Especially for giving me the substitute term "turbocharger" for "IUD." :)
Endometriosis isn't really brought on by stress either; the doctor said that's probably been around since I first started menstruating. It just finally kicked into gear in the last few months, culminating in that stupid experience with my first ultrasound.
Actually, in another giant "fuck you" to my mother, I'll probably be going back and donating in February.
I guess you're probably too old for us to adopt and put on our insurance, eh?
If I wasn't super dehydrated, that would have made me tear up. Thank you. <hugs you and Sjofn>
Technically, the cutoff age is 26 now.
See now, I read this:
right after reading this:
I think my double-take was justified.
Heh heh heh. Petition to change Elyscape's title to "Ovarian Spelunker".
Actually, that sounds like a good NPC name for my D&D campaign...
Translation from Aaronspeak into English: "Nope, not too old at all."
I finally got around to upgrading my server from Small Business Server 2003 to 2011. I reinstalled it about 4 years ago with 2003 so it was old but not a decade old.
Good god, what a mess. So I could properly track what I was doing and replicate it if necessary I tracked a very short description of every non-obvious change I made in OneNote.
189 separate line items, not counting stuff like "sync offline backups". Yeaagh.
Oi oi oi, I don't think I've agonized over posting a reply so much since. And still nothing.
This is an odd thing I just came across: the evil dictator of Uzbekistan's daughter (and possible successor) fancies herself a pop singer, among other things.
For a variety of reasons, I'm prohibited from directly expressing this sentiment, but agreeing should be okay.
We're terrible parents, but we hardly ever yell at our cats for their expensive surgeries!
I was discouraged from posting in this thread; the bar has been set high with endometriosis and awful parents.
Tonight I had to do everything I could to keep my ex from telling me that she wants me back. Because even after everything that's happened, I would take her back in an instant because I'm an idiot. We're soulmates. We're sisters. We still love each other very much and now have a wonderful relationship that most people would envy (even with her batshit girlfriend doing everything she can to make trouble). Why would we screw that up?
I've tried to tell myself that I just miss living together after five years, but that's a lie. I don't know what I'm going to do. It doesn't help that my mental health isn't stellar at the moment.
I only pontificate about other people's relationships in some other thread, so you only get a sympathy like here. ;)
Sympathy Like appreciated. If I were really seeking external wisdom, it would take a four page post for me to even begin to put things in context; the past year of my life reads like something between Jerry Springer and Salmon Rushdie and tells a thrilling saga of lesbians, video games, and cats, damn near ruining three of my favorite things.
edit: come on, there has to be a lesbian video game cat gif out there somewhere, make a guy happy, internets
I was going to trot out some lame story About my parents' failings as it relates to yours, but really I just want to say that the whole thing appears pretty shitty and I am sorry you have to endure that when healthy much less having to do so when you have been going through health concerns. Feel better soon!
You can tell they are lesbians by the butch collars...
While Nute is frequently (and forcefully) wrong, he's dead on here.
So one of my friends recently got into knitting, and she wants to make a hat with bunny ears. Unfortunately, all the patterns we could find were for toddlers and nowhere near adult-sized XD We were thinking something with long, floppy ears. Definitely knitted and not crocheted! Can anyone help out?
SwitchKnitter, I am summoning you solely because I know you knit and can possibly offer some advice.
