Wouldn't you just know it, I was one paragraph short of posting and my little finger grazed a button and the whole schmear disappeared!
So, here I go again:
Tweety, What a P.I.A that your identity was cribbed!( First of all, because you are One-Of-A-Kind, and can't be replicated!) We're all thankful that your bank is well-practiced at this all too common B.S., but hate you have to walk on this well-tread road. Hopefully nothing but trouble will fall upon upon the thief, and even turn-about, PLUS!
BCg, Yesssss, please post a movie review! I like Emma Stone, too. Hope Steve Carrell does a good job, also. But, I won't be seeing it until it comes on On Demand, AFTER the $6 or $8 fee for rental passes.
You know, back in the day of the original Battle of the Sexes tennis contest, everyone jumped on Bobby Riggs for saying women didn't make good tennis players because their boobs got in their way. Well, I don't play tennis, but I agree with him !00% that the bigger they are, the worse it is! I don'r understand the triple-DDD seekers. My friend's niece wants to have her, what she calls "A+ assets", enhanced, and I begged her to be moderate. If I could do so I would give her fully half of each of my my 'assets", in a Fraction of a New York Minute!
Nel, how odd that your mother withheld her cardiac cathing appt at the hospital; but you did say it was kind of typical of her. I know people like that, it is just weird; none in my immediate family, however, thank goodness. As you well know, my MiL is the exact opposite of that! That is also weird!
Ozzy is not eating either...well, most of the time he does, but he sometimes does one meal about q.o.d. no matter how I cajole him. It worries me, also, when my boy doesn't eat; sometimes I can coax him, and after 5 minutes or so he may pick and sniff before he FINALLY begins to eat in earnest. Pippy, on the other hand, will inhale anything and everything, even the hint of a scent of food that's not there anymore!
Dizzy dianah, (not ditzy, but dizzy!) I'm glad you are feeling better. Vertigo plays hell on your brain and body. My mom had it pretty bad for a while.; I still have a photo my sister took of her after she keeled over in the bathroom ... like a raccoon with a purple mask! She forgot to stand still a minute before she started to walk away. I know you are being very cautious, though; keep being that way! I don't want to hear your Halloween costume has anything remotely to do with a raccoon-mask!
This is sort of an
out-of-the-blue aside, but when a step-uncle of mine was a teenager, he wrecked more than a few cars (like exactly SIX, and lived to tell the tales.) When someone told him he needed to think a little BEFORE he drove, and be more cautious, he replied, brightly: "Who could be more pre-cautioner than I ?" We still laugh about that one, and try to slip the question into a sentence if it is even vaguely appropriate! One of those family in-jokes.
herring, It has always amazed me that the one medication that can make a big difference in the symptoms of CHF is the one people DON'T want to take! I remember saying to a patient once, "Well, it can't be any worse than having to STRUGGLE to breathe!" and he demurred by making a screwed up mouth and shaking his head "NO!"
I mean, I can drink two cups of coffee and pee and pee and pee every 10 minutes for an hour or more; yes, it's kind of bothersome or annoying, but not enough that it stops me from drinking coffee! Wait, maybe that's not the same thing; OH! That's one of those things my patient used to say that was "the same thing only different!
Anyway, I hope he is feeling better, as are you!
Speaking of annoying, irritating, and my own addition to that, being discouraged...this whole business of an aging body is exceptionally annoying and irritating to me. Now that I have written my usual chapter-length post, I should probably admit I promised my hubby to lay off so much computer use today, to rest my wrists and hands.
I was intending to be good, maybe walk a little, then sit reading the rest of the time, but I am doing laundry and washing dishes, though that's really prolly not a bad thing, having my hands in soothing hot water. I also want to thin-off the counter in my room that is the one collection spot for everything I intend on taking care of ....later. But I am fairly well-practiced at ignoring that place, so maybe I will continue that ability for another day.
I do want to close by adding some funny things I have seen lately, on bumpers, in magazines, newspapers, or heard. Laughter is the best medicine, and I find these amusing little things everywhere, every day, and I do enjoy sharing them. Then again, I AM easily amused. Nevertheless:
On the driver's side, a handle completely ripped out, with only the actual doorlock appearing intact, a decal on the window above: " ABS: Personal Safety System".
A decal from a LebowskiFest: "Calmer than you are."
A road named "Ugly Creek Trace".
The children of a guitar-player, heavily-into-the-music-scene: Santana, Marley, Cruz, Taj, and Lennon.
The children of a devout church-goer: Angel, Neveah, and Miracle.
Bumper Sticker: (not particularly funny, just oh-so-true) "Gossip is the most destructive force in the Universe."
Another bumper sticker: "Pay attention to God's Hippie Son."
"Haikus confuse me.
Too often they don't make sense.
Hand me the pliers.?"
Cartoon: "I long for the days before Political Correctness when kids were allowed to play Livestock Management Technicians and Indigenous Peoples."
On a delivery truck, the left back door had writing on it, but the right hand door was replaced and had nothing written on it...so the left door read:
Dorothy Parker Bon Mot:
Q.) What's the difference between an enzyme and a hormone?
A.) You can't hear an enzyme.
From Pirates of the Caribbean: End of the World (especially because Keith Richards said it)
"You have to be completely lost in order to find the place that can't be found."
Lastly, more than a few T-shirts:
"Another FINE DAY ruined by responsibility"
"Never laugh at your wife's choices.
YOU are one of them."
A mythical place where I get all my stuff done"
"Being cremated is my last hope for a smoking, hot body,"
"Some people don't only have issues...
They have whole subscriptions."
"I don't trip.
I do random gravity checks."
"My luck is like a bald guy who just won a comb."
"I just did a week's worth of cardio
after walking into a spider web."
"Sometimes I meet people
and feel bad for their dog."
"I think I have some unfinished procrastinating to do from yesterday."
"I could be a morning person ...
If morning happened at noon."
"I have a dig bick.
You that read wrong.
You read that wrong, too."
"Karma takes too long.
I want to smacK someone right NOW!"
Be careful when you blindly follow the masses...
sometimes the 'M' is silent."
and last but not least:
"I can't believe how old people my age are."
The End..........for now.
