    I've been sick more than I've been healthy this fall.

    Sinus infection in October that took forever to resolve. Cold in November. Then I got another sinus infection. I couldn't get my flu shot because any time I had time to get it, I was at least a little ill.

    So now I'm on the couch with either a cold or the flu. Either way, it's viral and kicking my ass despite my best efforts--right before I go back to work.

    In a normal year, I might get the sniffles once. I'm usually pretty healthy. This is ridiculous.

    My husband is taking good care of me... Now if only he could learn not to smash things together when he cleans, that'd be great. As it is, every time he unloads the dishwasher or loads it, I very nearly have a panic attack.

    Actually, in OUR house, when Mrs Daka loads the dishwasher she can never get all the dishes in, I take them out, reload and there is still more room.!!!

    My wife used to work with a guy I'll call Joe. Joe is a very talented guitarist (seven string, alternative tunings), a gifted singer, used to be an outstanding track & field athlete, and I could go on, but won't.

    The thing is he had the ego to match ^. A 'yes, I am great' smugness.


    They hadn't met in person in nine years, basically stayed in touch via FB. We met Joe & his wife for lunch on Saturday. His ego has toned down a (little) bit, but his smugness is still going strong.

    You'd think in a country that generally doesn't use central heating/air, and usually has fairly uninsulated houses (or at least bathrooms), they would use some kind of cold resistant material for the toilet seat.

    It's not too late to get influenza vaccine.
    And it's better to get it done, even with a mild concurrent illness, than to miss it completely.

    Something that doesn't conduct heat. We used thes in the last outhouse in an outbuilding at the farm.

    Styrofoam is a good way to go but when I was growing up without running water and electricity we just brought it in the house.
    You left it by the back door and took it with you.

    My mother would smack the hell out of us boys if we peed off the back porch rather then make the run to the outhouse.

    The stinking' coffee gods are conspiring against me today. First, my coffee grinder is deceased. No power, nothing. Then the LEDs that tell me that my espresso machine is hot also went bad. If I wait long enough, it obviously works; but who the hell wants to wait for their coffee in the morning?

    The grinder is going in for service. Touch and go whether it's cost effective to fix it or replace it. The same place is selling me an LED panel for the espresso machine. Here's hoping it is the right one.

    I know, first world problems. I just want my @#$%^ coffee in the morning.

    Long story, I bought a hot spot device, from SPRINT! Returned the device within the contract for a full refund. It was GREAT, except for on line gaming. The store gave me a zero balance, 10 days later I got a bill both in snail mail and on my email. I called Sprint! No worries, just a time diffence between billing cycles. Zero balance. Today 3 months later got a bill from a collection agency. For Sprint! Got on a 3 way call and the collection agency said they bought the debt from Sprint and refused to talk to them to resolve the problem. So I called the collection agency direct. They said they will wait and expect a zero balance from Sprint. However, I may have to pay, and then demand a refund from Sprint! Not them! Just to stop them from reporting this to the 3 national credit bureaus. WTF? Isn't this extortion? Furthermore! Sprint customer service is over seas. When I asked to be connected to a U.S. rep, well, non existed. From start to now 6 hours of my time. I can SHIT 57.60$ it would have been easier. But Sprint told me not too. NOW I'm down a rabbit hole.

    This is why you always get everything in writing, and don't hang up with sprint UNTIL you get it in writing. Then you just submit it in writing to the credit agency and tell them to get fucked.

    Also godammit I have that need-to-clear-my-throat feeling that means i'm probably sick. Most likely I got it from my FWB over the weekend.

    You have my sympathy.

    I bought my new truck in Sept. Since then, I've been getting toll bills for a similar truck with a different plate number ... from two different toll entities. Seems the next person in line got my name and address attached to their vehicle. So, ... every single part of my vehicle registration and title is correct; but hers is not. I've spent hours on the phone and taken half a day off work to go down to the DMV to fix a registration error on a vehicle that isn't mine. I have a letter from the county DMV stating that the error is theirs and that the license plate # is not and has never been mine. I forwarded that to both toll agencies (private in CO) and I'm still getting the bills and it is getting sent to collections.

    This has probably been the worst three days of Angry Uterus Pregaming that I've ever had in my life. I haven't broke anything yet, but I have angry cried and physically refrained from punching things until I was shaking. Hit the rowing machine and promptly gave myself an asthma attack. Huge bouts of irrational anger. And it. hasn't. even. fully. started. yet.
    Fuck me.
