SoliChan should go on the podcast, and just recite the stuff they have written.
What's your favorite amine? Mine's probably ketamine.
In all seriousness, consider people wot have lysdexia or just misspelled something.
Ia! Ia! Cthulhu ftaghn!
Yea. My cat is evil.
I have a love/hate relationship to my stubby legged cat Tut. He's annoying and stupid, but still has streaks of genius and can be incredibly nice and sweet. He's also eaten through the cords of my window blinds (I can't raise one anymore because of this) as well as eating through two phone charger cables and two pairs of headphones. And he's evil. Proof this morning.
Tut also has a puking problem. Just pukes. Usually 3-4 times a week. Sometimes more. Not chunky stuff or hairballs, but fully digested food. Changed to all sorts of foods and tried different things (even fancy vet $25 for a tiny bag food) and he just tosses it up randomly (which may or may not be connected to his love of eating plastic and other things he finds around the house. He is the reason I no longer have house plants.)
So I wake up this morning, head towards my dresser to grab my towel and leave my phone on it, and I step and slip on something and fly backwards, barely catching myself on my foot board to the bed. Turn on the light. Yea. Tut "spot" perfectly placed to try and kill me this morning by falling. No wonder he was so nice and snuggly before I got up. Trying to lull me into feeling I was safe and loved.
Maybe I'm boring, but I always liked good old methylamine.
I'm sure people end up on the amine page by mistake all the time. It just amuses me to think that they'd read more than a sentence or two without realizing they're mistake. What's all this boring chemistry stuff have to do with Sailor Moon? Maybe it's farther down the page?
Yeah, my ex's cat is pretty much the same. He's eaten through a Macbook charger (plugged in, no less), several headsets, chewed the heads off of PVC collectibles, and ... well, pretty much whatever else he can find. If he wasn't so damned sweet and adorable we'd have eaten him long ago. I yelled at her when her girlfriend brought home lead figurines and expected to just stick them anywhere. No homicide attempts yet, though ... I'd sleep with one eye open, if I were you.
Oh please no no no no no WE CANNOT HAVE THE FLU hubby is supposed to start work tomorrow NOOOOOOOO
Does it spoil it if I say chatting with Soli is a lovely experience and that she is a perfectly eloquent and wonderful woman? Her forum posting is like an art form unto itself.
can you still take a flu shot while you have the flu
take a flu shot while you still have the flu anyway
DO IT TO IT.
They won't give you a flu shot if you already have the flu or symptoms of the flu...wisely so.
well dang it.
BEST OF LUCK TO YOU AND YOUR MAN-GATOR,
Historically, hubby is very quick to get over his illnesses. We're crossing our fingers that he's no longer dry heaving tomorrow, so that he can at least go in for a few hours (if not a whole day).
Meanwhile, I'm having this weird semi-nausea crossed with the feeling that I've swallowed a bunch of dull knives. I know it's going to progressively get worse since I tend to get far sicker for far longer than hubby.
I'm gonna have to start chugging pepto aren't I. Sighing forever.
Moving across the country can do that to you, you know.
We're thinking we got it from my dad. He texted me Sunday night telling me that he thought he had the flu and wasn't able to keep anything down. Ugh.
I just wish I could sleep through it. The exhaustion is just about as bad as the vomiting and... other stuff.
Enjoying the last hour of my 30s with a beer or two, I might even chance a wee dram while I plan whether to get a Harley or a Porsche for my mid life crisis.
I am going to be so dehydrated... can't keep down water, and I sweat profusely when I heave. Goddamnit.
In other news hubby says he already feels better. I have a feeling I will be up most of the night.
<sympathy hugs for
Alligator and hubby> :(
Wait, you're almost 40 and you still haven't had your mid-life crises yet?
I'm a few years younger than you and I think I had my first one at 26. GET CRACKIN LADDIE
Alligator - no hugs right yet (you infectious germ-playground you) but sympathy and good vibes. I really hope you feel better soon.
SOMEONE THAT KNOWS COMPUTERS PLEASE REPORT TO THE TECH SUB-FORUM Screaming and crying internally
I have an absurd collection of computer gadgetry and I keep bees I figured it was time to progress onto other things. I did briefly consider chasing 20 year olds but the mrs was having none of that and a Porsche/harley seemed less expensive or hard work :)
As I can't like the original post, proxy like!
Those aren't mid-life crises, those are hobbies. You really gotta step up your game. A Porsche / Harley is a good start, but I think the Queen will revoke your Official British Card if you buy American instead of getting a Triumph.
I used to own a defender, that has to count for something surely. It nearly bankrupt me to boot.
Flattering bits but ah...I don't do poetry, not after the incident. Apparently last night I hit the jackpot of full on solar eclipse which happens very rarely, conditions must have been met.
Aaaand here we go, officially 40. Ho hum.
Rather than a midlife crisis, I call it my Annual Week of Dissatisfaction.
Why are there separate awards for "best actor" and "best actress"? Shouldn't it just be one award for "best actor"? It's not like acting favours one gender over the other, or that male acting is inherently different from female acting. Also it sucks if the best two actors in a year are women, and the second-best actor gets nothing because we have to give the best male actor a prize (or vice versa).
If there was just one award for "best actor," the second best actor of the year still gets nothing.
at last an opportunity to link my current favorite Supernatural scene!
Recovery update: Day Five. Not only have I been back on solid food for four days, been walking longer distances every day and been needing the painkillers less. Today, I managed to bend far enough to shave my legs.
I hadn't realized until this recovery that I apparently have the constitution of a young farm animal. :D
So WIS was the dump stat?
Nah, DEX. Constitution of a young calf and about as much grace.
TRY HUGGING YOUR COMPUTER.
I decline to take questions at this moment.
I don't always write fic, but when I do I fucking punch it for crazy. Haven't done personifications for awhile, however.
it didn't work but than you
thank you for your beautiful suggestion. have a hug. /hug
It occurs to me that more interesting than a "Where's Waldo"-style Dwarf Fortress kids book might be an illustrated kids book with some rhyming words written in some vaguely classical and imposing meter. With some awesome art I reckon this could. Kickstart well and be fun to do. "Like" if you agree?
...Perhaps I have been reading too much about Lewis Carol and the Hunting of the Snark on Wikipedia recently.
The moat's overflowed, the coins have been hoarded
On the bright side, no badger rampage was reported
Another attack cow we've managed to train
But two more artisans have gone quite insane
