You're nothing of the kind RW.  Thick, indeed.  Nonsense.  CYA is just a common acronym used usually in offices far too close to the executive wing and could be a US term.

Good luck with your due-diligence in getting ready for the semester.  It's a tough time of year to gear up, I know!  Hang tough.   :flower:

Oh, mousie.  You've had a time of it, haven't you?  This is one of the main reasons I sold my older house and rent where it's warm and I can sleep outside if I have to.  The condo in Michigan is self-containing, but who cares, it's buried in snow.  I'm too tired to deal with this kind of thing.  But, I'm keeping my finger's crossed that it doesn't turn out as badly as you think.  And I highly advise getting a second opinion.

I am trying to sleep by having a warm brandy and it's not working.  Too much on my mind.  '*despise* that.


Title: Re: What are you doing right now?
Post by: mousiekins on January 17, 2011, 10:49:00 am
Things should be fine.

The guy who came to repair yesterday managed to get the tiles down and is coming back today and will place them back. ( he has yet to give me a quote for that and the guttering though  :hide: )

We have had such strong winds the last few days. I was scared I was going to fly away  :tehe:

To me the best award show was during the Writers Strike, no frills.

It was just the Head of the Academy and he showed a clip of each movie then named the winner.

^^Whatcha coming up with, Byechoc?  I do the same thing.

Right now, I'm still packing absolute necessities and throwing away things I'll totally want later, for the big MOVE on the 15th to my new home.  SO, it's break time, which, in SoCal terms means, sunset/Chard.

 :hello: Yopper
I spent years at university! I was investigating on two areas ... I could write articles and stuff .. even won awards for everything you did ... I left everything to be a teacher, and after all, had to leave due to health problems ..
 But nothing ever filled me completely, always missed something important to have complete happiness ..
 I remember my friends telling me:
 You are in a great time, everything you touch turns to gold!
 But I always felt sad and alone ... I confess that I often feel jealous of my friends are building their lives and they are to marry ... I'm sick of going to weddings alone, more than that I feel bad for always trying to find someone but I never really care for nobody! I wonder what's wrong with me!

BIG hug, Byechoc!  I know the feeling of being alone in a crowd, now.  And my heart goes out to you.  I even tried a vacation (after Rick died) to the Mayan peninsula and what a waste of dough that was seeing all the couples, etc.  Something tells me that you're ready to find someone to enjoy life with.  Don't ask me why, but when you put out a sentence or thought to the cosmos, strange and miraculous things happen.    :flower:

Shaking. Someone Just killed a man in front of my building, he should be around 23, was shot by eight shots. It's horrible trying to sleep .. Brazil changed an impossible place to live. It is the second assault within a few months in front of my building. The last the boy came with his girlfriend, the robbers demanded the car and when he left the car to flee from another attack and they shot the girl ran and shots not reached, but he died, Echo and the desperate cries of her yet are in my ears. Here is now midnight and fifteen minutes, the police are here, but by this time tomorrow we'll have no security and police again without, even being an upper middle class neighborhood, as always, this is living in the Third World. The girl who works in my house is shaking and terrified, she certainly will not get to sleep tonight. Every day our lives are at risk, a risk that we do not have hospitals, risk we no have safety, I want to see when the people will endure all that, endure so much money going to foreign banks while we have nothing, no dignity Or the right to life...

Watching Two and a Half men, this show can not stop, it has to continue. This program here in Brazil is now one o'clock in the morning and the people are agreed to attend despite having to sleep to wake up early for work, is the favorite of many people here. This team has become a family, they do not seem more opposite, they have become accustomed to each other, spent much of their lives together in those recordings as the whole family and they must learn to forgive so that they can continue winning together, and I I hope they.

She's a daschund chihuahua mix. She looks like a daschund but has chihuahua ears.  :tehe: She's about 1.5 and an absolute doll. I don't know how anyone turned her out to begin with. I found her online through petfinder.com.  I've had her for the last week on a trial visit and now I'm moving forward to make the adoption final.

I don't know how people can throw any animal out on the streets. I adopted my cat at 10 weeks old and she was already classed as a long term stray by the RSPCA. They knew nothing about her other then she was a skeleton and scared of everything around her.  :sob:

Upset: The only American TV show I like they take. I do not know how Warner Bros has money, they took a series that was more a money making machine and destroyed. Has been much comment on the fact that Charles Sheen have emphasized the Sept. 11 would have taken the Warner Bross. But it was a show I enjoyed watching before bed, I slept a lot of laughing Alan and Charles. This was a show that had all the ingredients to run for many years, at least while Alan and Charles were still alive, but Warner Bros destroy the recipe.  bignono

I adore Two and a Half Men, too, and am deeply sorry that Charlie is having his odd moment now.  I DO hear they're negotiating, so keep your chin up.

I'm trying to figure out how to cook a weirdo dinner I bought from Trader Joe's and I'm a really good cook, but the yams are confusing me.  For those outside the west coast of the US, Trader Joe's is awesome.

I've been mulling over a side conversation I had with one of my trainers today. The man is in his 60's and out of the blue he approached me to have a conversation, or rather to tell me about his grandmother, whom was a "white witch" from Wales. He was telling me how she was the community doctor in Wales and a well respected healer until she immigrated to the U.S. and could no longer practice her art. Even though she continued administering her herbal remedies within the family, she never learned English and much of her knowledge was lost in translation, thus never handed down the generations. ...

It was quite strange, as he did most the talking, ended with telling me that my knowledge is useless unless I share it, and then left the building. Very strange indeed!  :sigh:

- Clean my room, (it's a huge mess!  :shy:)
- Finally scan all of my royal mag's and articles (another pile that grows like weed since the engagement  :whistle:)
- I could go out on a date afterall it's Friday night and I'm a 25 year old single girl (but wait... I did that! I went to dinner with a couple of male colleagues  :thumbsup: had some very yummy sushi! :sigh:)

Yooper, making those plans is not gloomy it's smart, that way if the unavoidable day comes you know what to do and don't have to run around that much!
I didn't know what to do when my dad died and it caused me and my mum a lot of stress when it happened!
I had to figure it out by my self (my mum was a useless wreck for more than a month so..), it's unbelievable how much red tape you have to go trough when someone close to you dies  :o
after that mess i had a good talk with my mum about her funeral as well, now I know what she likes and it wont be so stressy!
I even have the legal stuff for the inheritance filed and sorted already it's a bit creepy to think about, yes but I'm glad i did! :thumbsup:

I watch a documentary on dolphins, the hunting of dolphins in Japan is pretty serious, as they allow it, God help this kind of nature is beautiful, I love dolphins, it is very sad to see people killing them as well, I believe who needs to further enhance the work of environmentalists, especially among the Japanese people for that prohibit hunting .... These American environmental documentary are doing a good job at it I also admire Prince Charles, it is a good side to fight the species, this love of nature, it is something very positive and many environmentalists ... Congratulations, let's move on ...

Trying to make an iTunes list for downloading to my iTouch for my upcoming reunion that requires hours of listening to everything written between 1963 - 1975.  I'm opting for two files, one soft rock, one real rock, but man, we made a lot of music then! 

Anyway, it may be a waste of effort because everybody wants to bring their cassettes. (!) I toldja, I'm going into the Hinterland.  All I asked for was a docking station.  You'd think I was from Star Trek or something.

Anywho, totally loving Motown right now.  Back in my day, WLS out of Chicago was the only radio you could hear music at all after the sun went down and all the radio signals calmed down.  My first real rock tune I ever heard was Love Potion #9.  You guys won't get that, but it's cool for me.


Title: Re: What are you doing right now?
Post by: Earth Angel on June 14, 2011, 02:19:24 am
^ I got it! Love potion #9 is a great song. I inherited one of my aunts old 8 tracks and 45's! Yep, that's right, I grew up with 8 tracks and 45's, along with cassettes. All the oldies and might I add there are plenty of goodies! Love motown! My grandparents still have an old fashioned gramophone that works. :sigh: (I'm really not as old as this makes me sound though!)

Right now I'm trying to make a serious plan for the future. ...


Title: Re: What are you doing right now?
Post by: Yooper on June 14, 2011, 02:24:07 am
I kinda gave up on a serious plan for my future, EA, so you're way ahead of me, or I'm waaaay ahead of you and should shout back, "GIVE IT UP!"   Not sure.

I've made my way up to the Yardbirds.  Now it's time for the Eagles, The Byrds, Dave Clark Five, and Moody Blues.  Nobody can make a compilation from 1960 - 1975-ish without spending weeks.  Not possible.  When did music become so stupid.  As I listen, wow, that's good stuff. 

And, remember, I am what?  Hmmm?  YES, the biggest Beatle fan in the world, so there's all THAT.  Wow.

Right now, it's Fortunate Son by Creedence.  Yessssssssss!

These doofuses at my reunion better bow low.  No.  LOWER.


Title: Re: What are you doing right now?
Post by: Earth Angel on June 14, 2011, 02:31:41 am
^ Yes wonderful music. Crosby, Stills, & Nash, The Bee Gees, The Kinks, YES! There are sooo many artists that had true talent and thought provoking, yes oftentimes peaceful music. Sounds like you're going to have an excellent compilation!  :loveshower:

I know I should probably give up concrete planning, but I have to at least pick a definite direction and course of action to guide myself for assisting my children in achieving their dreams. I'm sure there'll be roadblocks, detours, and uturns, but hey, at least I'll be able to say I had some sort of map. ...

* I should note that this map does not include plans for my daughter to chase a prince or my son to marry some heiress. They are my children's dreams that will not involve me trying to live vicariously through them or encouraging them to social climb. lol They will have to work hard to attain their individual ideas of success*

Well, you're doing something far more worthy than I, EA.  All I'm doing is re-creating people's lives from a long time ago through music.  But, maybe that's not such a bad thing.  We never dance as well as we did then, tho.  And you should see my dress!  ANYway, the music has been a dream, so far.

I swear, they can try and they can dance and techno it up all they want, it's hard to top some of the stuff I'm listening to that I haven't in years.  Wow. 

The KINKS are next and I can't wait. 

Ok, here they are.  They were/are (still doin' it?) the best.  My really awful ex-husband played them in a band and I swooned.  "I believe that you and me will last forever...yeah...."  Yeah.  What.  Ever.  Still good tunes.  *dancing around room*  L.O.L.A. Lola....La la la la la LOLA!

I'd much rather be dancing around my house to some oldies! :spooky: No one ever helped me plan for my future. For the most part I was raised to be a wife and mother first and consider obtaining an education. Very old school upbringing. I went to college but withdrew to get married and start a family. I didn't finish my undergrad as a traditional student, although I have managed to go on to obtain a masters degree. I feel like I can't leave my kids to figure it all out on their own, like I eventually had to do. To help them chart their currently ever changing pathes helps give me some peace of mind that they'll each be able to monetarily take care of oneself at least. They're both still young enough where they have many options. No need to stress about such matters quite yet. ...

I'm too distracted to focus right now though, so I'm going to relax & listen to some oldies music! Maybe dance around some. :spooky:

You and I have a lot more in common than I thought.  I took two years of college and then got pregnant.  I didn't finish until my kids were older, too, so they don't know how lucky they are. They really don't.  One kid got his path, one finally found his, but is still hanging out here off and on helping me with my never-ever-to-die mother.  Life.  A gas.

I'm up to Simon and Garfunkel now.  AWESOME!!!!!  "I AM A ROCK! I AM AN ISLAND!"  Enjoy.  Dance, dance, dance.

I think I missed the Moody Blues and Pink Floyd in there somewhere so gotta do a u-turn, tho.

Eeeeuw, Gwendolyn.  I had mono for almost 6 weeks in college.  No fun.  And when I had it, there was nothing to do but wait it out.  Any meds these days?

Akasha - mono is mononucleosis, aka the 'kissing disease'.  It's a viral infection that attacks the body and you have (or I did) extreme fatigue, fever, headache, etc.  And it just hangs on forever.

'Hope you feel better soon, G!!!

I'm making nifty luggage tags for my upcoming trip in July.  My new computer has some fun fonts and I've added a picture of my house to the tag so when (not if) they lose my luggage they have the address and a picture!

Oh that's awful Gwen! I've been there and one of my young cousins is still currently fighting mono two and a half months after contracting it.

^ The theories have been borne out with medical evidence. It can destroy your immune system for life. Some people get over it and never have a further attack or any other related ailment, never having known they contracted it. But others aren't so lucky. I'm one of them.

Post by: Earth Angel on June 20, 2011, 04:20:03 pm
Our National Institute for Health (NIS) claims the research is inconclusive as to the exact long term ramifications and as of September 2010, they are looking at another viral culprit called the murine leukemia virus. Apparently there are similarities and differences in the two viruses, the second identified more recently and seemingly always leads to long term effects.

 I :dontknow: what's being researched or concluded in Australia, but I do know that the UK (NHS) also has various theories for chronic fatigue syndrome, with mono being only one potential culprit and not all NHS theories are accepted in the U.S. ... Now the NIH and NHS are collaborating on major research in this area, as of Fall 2010.

I think our scientists need to collaborate more and stop wasting money, as they're not necessarily replicating already done research, it's like they've been reinventing the wheel, from what I read. ...

I don't know much about medical research, apart from what I get told by my doctors, really.  :dontknow: Oh, I do know that one of our universities is conducting research into CFS and theorises that there are different strands of it ... and I always thought that EBV causes CFS, well as the orthodox view anyway.  :flower:

I wasn't actually referring to CFS. Though a serious medical condition, I was referring to diagnosed immuno deficiency, which is different. It's treatable with Gamma Globulin replacement, but it's not pleasant, easy or risk-free. After that, I then got diagnosed with the precursor to bone marrow cancer, followed by thyroid malfunction. I've been told that two out of the three, at least, is attributable to the Epstein Barr virus.  :bat:

 :sorry: to hear that June. EBV has been implicated in alot of debilitating conditions. It's interesting to see the different effects, just within my family, as there are 3 whom have been diagnosed with EBV, including the one cousin recently, and way back when, I had all the symptoms but a negative result for EBV at the time I was tested. I had a virus, but they didn't know what the virus was at that time. Anyway, what you describe is awful. I too have had some long term effects that can be attributed to EBV, but with a negative EBV test 18 years ago, it's kind of a mystery, due to the overlapping of symptomology in so many virus' ...

It sucks for anyone to have such unremitting health problems and no doubt effects the quality of one's life. I'm just thankful mine aren't on the very bad end of the spectrum.

You may want to do some of your own research though, as what you describe is what I read they are now correlating to the murine leukemia virus, although such was previously thought to be caused by EVB and there is still the possibility both virus' can cause these long term effects. I'm not saying you were misdiagnosed, but I am saying research now indicates the possibility that many people may have have been. I've had two serious virus' in my lifetime that were not specificly diagnosed, and the one in 2008, which was some type of viral pneumonia, landed me in the hospital. I'm told the reason it could not be specified at that time may be from viral mutations. ...

The long term effects of EBV, murine leukemia virus, and others are in many ways still a medical mystery. ...

Right now, I've got some phone calls to make. ...

^ I've passed out before when I was sick, but such can happen for many reasons. Have you been eating properly? Your blood sugar could have been low. Sometimes a person's body will just shut down from being exhausted. Your immune system is overworking itself and that throws your entire body off balance, so there are a number of things that could cause one to pass out. If you start getting tunnel vision, sit down wherever you are and if it does happen again I say consult a doctor and find someone whom can stay with you for a few days, just in case it becomes more frequent. Best Wishes!  :hug:  :getwellsoon:

Thanks for the well wishes.  :thankyou:

I'm actually really well now, but I must remain vigilant about my health. I won't lie: adjustments have had to be made to my lifestyle. Since I want to achieve in life, I choose work over play, ergo, I have time to come to this forum because my social life is not very active.  :tehe:

I've been under the care of an eminent immunologist for years, plus other specialists. I take my medication and natural supplements which work for me. I ensure I get adequate rest, because if I don't I just get run down - my body really punishes me.

I made a decision years ago that I would not let annual testing for signs of cancer get me down. Millions have higher risk than me. I just live my life and really listen to my body. That is the one advantage of having had ill health: you get to know your body really well. I have so many tests all the time, that I actually feel very confident about the state of my health (touch wood  :hide:).

Truth told: I'm probably healthier and have more energy than most people, simply because I take very good care of my health. I always get compliments about how 'well' I look.  :shy: I always ensure that my basic vitals are sound.

@ EA: thank you once again.  :thankyou: I know that I have not been misdiagnosed, by reason of the precision of the pathology.

@ Gwen: I hope we haven't scared you.  :KEZZA: If you are passing out, it could be low blood pressure. I urge you to get all your vital signs checked, as simple deficiencies can make you feel much worse than you otherwise would with chronic illness. Serious illness can really throw your whole body out. For example: a malfunctioning thyroid can cause all sorts of nutritional deficiencies.

Both myself and a friend were told to take high strength vitamins + minerals to assist with EBV. Personally, I don't think it really worked as it's more complicated than just taking a vitamin pill. I take lots of different supplements - so many that I rattle!  :KEZZA:  :tehe:

June, you haven't scared me.  :BFF:  You and Earth Angel have done quite the opposite, in fact.  I'm sure it was nothing serious, especially if low blood sugar, deficiencies and low blood pressure can do it.  I probably have those without the mono.  I'm kind of OCD about checking my resting heart rate and it's always between 45 and 55, and I tend to get iron deficient and potassium deficient pretty easily.  I'll get the vitals checked for sure and start keeping a food journal again just in case.  Thank you so much, ladies.   :flower:

That sounds so frustrating!!  Glad putting your foot down worked, Rogue.

I'm busy being just about the happiest person ever.  Singing keeps me sane, and I now have confirmation that I'll be in this program to work on my bel canto technique.  One of the most inspirational things I've ever seen was an interview with Pavarotti in which he was talking about the craft and technique of opera.  Pavarotti sang a note and held it for a few seconds, and when he finished, he said that note took him 10 years to produce.  Whatever the equivalent of that note is for my voice, the countdown is on!!

Waiting for work to be over so I can go home and relax.  Nowhere near 100% right now.  I "pulled a Diana" again yesterday (love that term).  Last time, it happened in front of my brother, and he only had time to call my name a couple times before I came to.  Yesterday, I had time to miss three phone calls!  I was out for at least 15 minutes because that's how long beforehand the first call had been missed.  I don't know what's going on, and I don't like it.  :(

Well, I just got back from the hospital.  It's probably my heart.  :(  I already knew I had an arrhythmia, but it wasn't anything serious.  Now I have a different type of arrhythmia that is more serious.  If it's not my heart and not an aneurysm (I think they ruled that out), it's probably emotional stress.  I have to go in for a slew of testing.  My heart rate and potassium are low enough that they wanted to hospitalize me at first.  I'm still a bit of an agoraphobe though so we worked it out.  Oh, and when I hit my head, it turns out I gave myself a concussion.  Y'know what's weird is that I went to the hospital alone and everyone I know is asleep, so you guys are the first I'm telling.  Honestly, it feels good to get it out, so thanks.  :flower:

Leila, I just saw your question.  I am feeling much better, and thank you for asking.  :flower:  I haven't fainted in two weeks, and I'm getting used to my cardiac diet, so I'm happy.  I used to be incredibly self-indulgent in my food choices, so the diet was a big adjustment, but it's awesome, and the food is surprisingly delicious.  I'm eating waaaay more and actually losing weight because it's healthier food.  I'll have to share some of my new recipes.  Nutritionist approved!

Akasha, thank you  :hi:  He changed his mind at the last minute!  He was going down there to work with some company that deals with hazardous materials, but he's staying here and sticking with his mechanical engineering degree instead.  Phew!  He reminds me of Peter in Office Space.  He has brains, but he hates the 9 to 5 and prefers physical labor.  Who knows which way he'll wind up going.

With anger. They managed to destroy the greatest comedy series I've ever watched. I watched two and a half men season nine that I bought the first episodes, I did not laugh once. I put the eighth season and I cried with laughter, twoa nd a half men without Charle Sheen not exists, he is Charles Harper, and Charles Harper is the foundation of everything, a man with Latin roots, womanizer, funny, everyone trying to make him change his life, he - Charles Harper - is very funny with Alan. Aschton is good, but he looks like a boy. Two and half men is no fun without Charles Sheen, sorry. I'll save my eight seasons that I bought when I want laugh. Chuck Lorre's ego destroyed eight years of scenes and funny characters that American television has led to the world, Brazil has loved two and a half men, everybody here knew two and a half men, what a shame it all ended up missing a single word: forgiveness, learning to live with human errors and to overcome the obstacles of life with each other smiling, this is a great word of wisdom.

Date great.  It's unusual and no offense to American men everywhere, but to find a true gentleman is a rare occurrence and this guy IS exactly that - true, full-bread gentleman.  It may be his Virginia upbringing added to his years with the US Navy, but he hasn't made a misstep yet.  I know!  AND, he's yummy.  But, it's never happened to me before, except once, so I refrain from, y'know, any kind of excitement yet.

The timer's screwy on this website and I'm on Pacific time, so I technically walked in the door at 11 pm and, yes,  :flirt: I got my first kiss, on the beach, while he freezed to death because he ignored my dress code advice.  He's pretty special, ladies.  We're going on a dinner/dance cruise next week.  That makes me sound like a geezer, but he's all excited about it.  Being in the navy, I suppose I get that he likes that and the city lights at night are truly spectacular.

My big problem is that he's already asked me what I want for Christmas.  I *despise* that!!!  I said, "A kind word." And meant it.  He apparently has something else in mind.  And, no, no important jewelry.  We're still fumbling around.

Right now, I'm wrapping gifts for the kids on the east coast/midwest.  :TCP:  I cheated big time and flew into Nordstroms and asked for a bunch of boxes, ribbons, tags and tissue paper.  Total life saver.  Hey, shout out to Akasha!  I'm going to get the sea shell holiday wreaths from the Open Aire Market and hang lights on 'em this year for the front of my mouse cottage.  Should be cool.  :snowman: (Oh, and the Chargers lost, but the Lions won this weekend).  Two days to wait for the Packers/Lions game and somebody's big day on Thanksgiving is almost here!!!!   :akasha:

And I'm still putting together mistletoe packages for a fundraiser.  We have to have 2000 of them @ $3 a pop.  Yay!   Believe it or not, mistletoe grows here in CA and our elves go out and climb black oak and get it for those who need an extra nudge for a holiday smooch.  (I saved one for m'self).

All in all, we're in a festive mood here and looking forward to not only Christmas, but New Year's!!!!  Our big day!  I have a party to go to on New Year's Eve (got a driver, to and fro) and it will be a lot of fun.  Wearing my black with bling everywhere.

Anywho, I'm getting ready for the big New Year's Eve gala.  It's super pathetic, but I'm going alone to a singles gig at the country club.  Sure wish I'd lost that last 5 lbs, but oh well!   Nobody can ruin this most favorite night in my little world.

Transcribing field notes from a scientist who lived here in southern California during WWII.  Really interesting but tedious work.  They've run out of people to do it and, believe it or not, herpetologists the world over are anxiously waiting for it to go 'live' online.  I know more than I need to know about snakes, lizards, and assorted reptiles.  But, to know that the PCH (Pacific Coast Hwy) was a dirt road (with lots of dead beasties on it) and only one-way at times, is an eye opener.

I have also learned that we, in the US, used a system called Pacific War Time, Eastern War Time, etc. during the war.  Fascinating to read about gas rationing, where they went to borrow against their own mortgages sometimes just to get gasoline and food!  Luckily, gardens grew fast in SoCal.  Take that, Adolf and Japan.

I appreciate the distraction of this place while I'm doing this for the Museum!

Post by: Yooper on April 06, 2012, 06:07:13 am
^TCP's in China, yes?

I'm making a movie for work to be showed to some potential donors re an outing we'd like them to continue to fund. I finally figured out how to make the audio fade in/out so that the mike works and they can hear what we're trying to do.  It's fun but one slipup?  Not good.

Maybe it's best I leave it for the morning when my brain isn't so fried.

How's the wrist, Gwendolyn?  I smashed my spine into the screen door handle carrying too much stuff (lazy man's load my gramma called it) yesterday and it's set me on the couch for a bit.  It's in the wrong stupid place to put a bag of peas on.  Feels better today, but I hope you're doing better, too.

Post by: Gwendolyn on April 07, 2012, 02:16:38 pm
The wrist is much better now.  Thank you for asking.  :flower:  It was dislocated.  The spine injury must feel awful.  I'm so sorry.  :(


Title: Re: What are you doing right now?
Post by: Yooper on April 07, 2012, 04:37:30 pm
So glad to hear you're better, Gwendolyn!  Geez, dislocated, huh?  Did they have to pop it back in and make you wear a movable cast??? 

I'm fine.  You're right, tho, it hurt like the dickens for a day or so and I couldn't lie on my back, which messed up the whole sitting down or sleeping thing, but then, boom, one morning, I think yesterday, I woke up and it was ok.  Next time I'll be smarter and take two trips to the car and not rush around so.  It was a preventable boo-boo; stupid mistake on my part.


Title: Re: What are you doing right now?
Post by: Gwendolyn on April 07, 2012, 04:58:58 pm
I popped it back in myself.  Couldn't believe how immediate the relief was, although it was tender for quite a while.  Glad to hear/read that you're feeling better too.

I'm still entering data on field notes from a herpetologist during WWII.  At first, fun, now a total drag.

And I'm still wrapping my head around the whole Pippa and gun thing.  It seems surreal....

It's toenail polish time again, ladies who have been through this with me before.  I've got a white/black ball on Wednesday and my stylist called and asked what color to have/order for toes.  Wearing black shoes and clear fingernails.  I'm sounding way more high maintenance than I am; she's just really organized.

SO, I'm trying to figure out what color.  It'll end up safe old jungle red, I s'pose, but I'd like to do something different.  Dark navy? Yellow shiny? Any input appreciated.  I'm lost.


Title: Re: What are you doing right now?
Post by: deGuernsey on April 23, 2012, 03:13:09 am
akasha -  :hug:  thank you

Yooper - beige or nude if you want to go conservative/safe... jungle print or American flag decals if you want to run riot... perhaps you can match the toes to the theme of your ball??

Title: Re: What are you doing right now?
Post by: Yooper on April 23, 2012, 03:29:08 am
I love, love, love, LOVE the first pic of the silver polish.

Keep in mind, this is my very first date in almost 20 years and he has now requested pink.  Blecch.  Man, I wanna use that silver.  This is it, ladies.  Do what I prefer or what the man has kindly requested........

Do, to stay on topic, I am currently trying to make a wise decision.


Title: Re: What are you doing right now?
Post by: YooperModerator on April 23, 2012, 03:39:11 am
If the colour nail polish is a deal breaker to him then I say:
"Good riddance! Don't let the door hit ya!"
Honestly it's not as if you can't remove it afterwards, it's nail polish not a tattoo! (but if you want I have a few cool idea's for those as well ;) lol)

Don't get over exited, he's a guy he probably won't even notice it unless you kick him in the face! :laugh:


Title: Re: What are you doing right now?
Post by: deGuernsey on April 23, 2012, 03:44:11 am
Oh, I didn't know this is your first date in 20 years... so running riot is quite out of the question as I thought this was only for a bit of fun... if the man requested politely than wearing pink is Okay.  Perhaps you can match a silver brooch or jewellery or scarf?  You can always wear silver on the second date?  


Title: Re: What are you doing right now?
Post by: Yooper on April 23, 2012, 03:48:56 am
^OH, deG!  Good idea.  Pink for ball and silver for second date (please, please, he's so terrific)

^^ lol

It's no deal breaker, so what I'm doing now is emailing my manicurist and  emailed the silver pic - thank you Akasha!).  I'll wear pink fingernails to compromise if need be.  Men are so stupid they don't know the diff between a manicure and a pedicure.

What am I doing now?  I am now officially freaking out!  A legit date to a big ol' ball.  I couldn't make it easy.  Nope.

you can always kick out the shoes an swap 'em for flat's if it becomes to much!
you got a pair of these fold able flat's that you can smuggle in your bag right?


Title: Re: What are you doing right now?
Post by: Yooper on April 23, 2012, 04:18:05 am
^Yes, I do, Akasha.  It'll be fine.  I'll be fine.  Everything will be fine.  He's as nervous as I am and I will focus on that and make him as comfortable as I can.  If nothing else, I know where the bar is.  NO, no alcohol.  Recipe for disaster.

Thank you all for your input and help.  It's just so strange even talking to a man about certain things.  You guys are the best, so what I'm doing now is thanking my lucky stars and God for you.

Just sign on, Yooper, and the BBC will send you weekly E-mails and after the course ends you can even take a test to show proficiency.  Good luck.

Oh, I forgot to add they also have Spanish, Italian, and German on offer.  I have also discovered the HalfPrice Books Store which has very good deals on audio and computer programs in each of these languages and others.  If you need anything else I can possibly help you with, please feel free to ask.  :hug:

I think I know why he likes the pink - men, well some of them - like the near natural look on a woman.  :flirt: Pink is well - almost natural but manicured.  Don't sweat the silver and please let us know how it goes.

Ahhh, I love romance.  :loveshower:

 :hug:Thank you, MMARoyals.   It is so strange and heart rending because I was always very good at languages and scholastics but events occured so I had lost much of what I had previously studied and some of my memory.  Most of my studies are refresher courses so to speak although with the Copywriting and Journalism I have learned much I did not previously know.  It is incredible.

I'm so sorry and it feels so surreal, I know.  One suggestion if it's not too late and I wish I'd done it. Get somebody to get his handprint in clay or what have you.  It has soothed many...later.  My prayers are with you and your grandfather.  Agreed.  Hold his hand and spend every moment telling him howmuch you love him and appreciate him and will miss him terribly.  Hospice is far too close a friend of mine.  Much hope for peace for this awaiting hole in your heart.  Y.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you, Yooper.  Your suggestion is not too late, and I will be sure to do that.  We're told he has no more than a week left, probably just a couple of days.  We're watching him go through the stages of death at this point.  No choice but to be ready for it now, but it feels like there will never be another good day.  I'm sorry if anyone finds that too personal.

Re-packing and trying to decide which teddy bear of mine gets to go on this voyage.  Miss Milly's really never been anywhere and she's the dinkiest, so I think we have a winner.  Coach Teddy has seen more than a lot but he's my comfort bear, Foie Gras has been to the 'continent', so those two can stand guard methinks.

was watching the Military History Channel. The episode was on submarines and inventors. I was intrigued by these guys (had to read more about them) and their inventions like David Bushnell. He was an inventor of the first submarine used in combat (peddling exhaustively and with stealth like precision during the Revolutionary War) and while in Yale proved that gunpowder can explode under water. All leading up to torpedoes (Whitehead and Luppis) and weapons of today. Fascinating...

Enjoying old 1920's and 1930's songs from "Whispering' Jack Smith and Al Bowlly.
Below a bit of their biographies.

A 1928 song by  "Whispering" Jack Smith. His "whispering" style of singing was a result of a World War I injury from poison gas that kept him from singing at full volume. He made the "whispering" style popular.
His terrible wife refused to put mark his grave and till this day it is unmarked in the Bronx.  

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aL4I7YuoCeo

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQ9seXH4vAk


Al Bowlly died in during WWII during an air raid in April 1941.
On 17 April 1941, Bowlly and Messene had just given a performance at the Rex Cinema in Oxford Street, High Wycombe, now demolished. Both were offered the opportunity of an overnight stay in the town, but Bowlly opted to take the last train home to his flat at 32 Duke Street, Dukes Court, St James, London. His decision proved to be fatal, as he was killed by a Luftwaffe parachute mine that detonated outside his flat later that evening. His body appeared unmarked: although the massive explosion had not disfigured him, it had blown his bedroom door off its hinges and the impact against his head proved fatal. He was buried with other bombing victims in a mass grave at the Hanwell Cemetery (originally City of Westminster Cemetery), Uxbridge Road, Hanwell, London, where his name is spelled Albert Alex Bowlly.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!! :bouncy:

What's everyone most thankful for?  In my little world, I'm just thankful that my children are healthy; I daren't ask for any more than that. 

Enjoy the day everybody who partakes!!!   :thumbsup:

Hi Yooper,  :hi:  as for Thanksgiving, well, as usual it's always in my house.  On any given night, I'm the cook in the house but on Thanksgiving, my husband is the chef.  He bakes an awesome turkey and I'm not just saying that because he's my husband  :tehe: but seriously, the man can bake.  So pretty, much, we're having everything traditional but he'll throw in a macaroni and cheese (with ham) because it's our daughter's favorite.   :flower:

I'm in charge with dessert though and I'm going to bake a Pumpkin roll (several of them because it's the first to go), apply pie, brownies, chocolate chip cookies and fruit salad.  Yup, you heard me, fruit salad because it's my mother-in-law's favorite and don't ask me why.  I just make it for her because one mustn't offend ones' mother-in-law, right?  So there you have it.... kisss

My dream fantasy of a Thanksgiving would be to drive off to somewhere and forget the in-laws but oh well....Maybe next year. :spy:


Title: Re: What are you doing right now?
Post by: Yooper on November 28, 2013, 01:41:48 am
^Well, my Christmas wish is to some day (EGAD) have a daughter-in-law just like you!   :thankyou:

It all sounds just yummy and I, too, have been the resident cook for as many years as you can count.  Well, not so much over the last few Funeral Years as I call them, but now with so much loss in our family it's time to scrape up the last of the survivors and see what we come up with.  We're not much but we're all we've got.  I'm not referring to my children.  But, I hear you, I would love to just go out for Thanksgiving as I did in CA and be waited on.  No leftovers that way, tho.  So, nothing's perfect. 

Would you kindly share what a 'pumpkin roll' is?  That's a new one for me.  I'll bet it's delish.   :flirt:

Oh my Lord what a spread we had today.  It was positively sinful.  But, so many showed up!  Pumpkin pie, apple pie, turkey breast stuffed with prosciutto, corn bread and regular stuffing, my world famous mashed spuds, gravy, the good ol' bean casserole and on and on and on.

And the Lions beat the Packers 40 to 10!!!  Yessssssssssss. 

It turned out to be a great day after all was said and done.  Here's your Thanksgiving laff.   My eldest son had a date planned for the evening but ended up back at the house after about an hour.  He said his stomach was so bloated he had to cut it short and come home and just hit the WC.  He really went overboard.  HA!

I hope you all had a safe and enjoyable holiday today and now the Big One is ahead.  This was a great trial run to see what I need to make for Christmas dinner.  I know what things I need to dig around and find that are hidden in unpacked boxes.  Ferinstance, I had to run out and buy a potato peeler.  How silly.

Ceridwen!!!!  Pleeeez tell me what a Pumpkin Roll is.  I'm dying to try it.    :thankyou:

Hi Yooper,  :hi:  You're so sweet.  I do love my mother-in-law, despite her demands.  She's a lovely woman, funny as can be who loves dirty jokes!!  :laugh:

Sorry for the delayed response.  I had a wild day today.  My kitchen sink pipe (the supply line) somehow started leaking and my dear husband (he is a medical doctor by the way) thought that he could fix it even though I insisted that we should call the plumber.  He said, "how hard could it be - it's not as if it's brain surgery!!!"   Now this was at 7 am and so he reassured me that we'll have Thanksgiving as usual.  And so my crazy husband (always thinking that he could save everything) made it worse.  2 hours tinkering under the sink, I heard a very loud noise and the entire sink collapse on his head and water (and this time) was gushing in full force, flooding the entire kitchen.  I had to ran outside the house and turned off the main water switch.  Our dog even ran away to the backyard and our daughter went on top of the kitchen island.  Anyway, I had to call the plumber and was informed by a voice message that due to being a holiday, that they're close.  I called several plumbing companies and received similar news.  Low and behold, 20 minutes later, one of the plumbers called and he said that he'll be in our house in about 30 min-1 hour.  So to make the long story short, the plumber arrived and fixed the problem and billed us a $800.00!!!!  Hubby is fine, no injury (head is fine)... :flower:

We still had our Thanksgiving (I don't know how we managed it with a flooding kitchen) but we were able to have the spread especially my mother-in-law's fruit salad!!!  Families/friends came, ate and helped cleaned up the mess!!!  Now, I'm exhausted and I have to work tomorrow!!!  :o :o

OK as for the PUMPKIN ROLL - it is a spongy pumpkin cake in a roll with a cream cheese filling.  It's not my recipe, I sort of borrowed it from Yahoo food line and so, if you want the recipe, I'll give you the link.  It's very delicious!!!!   kisss

Hi Akasha, Happy Thanksgiving .... :hello:  


Title: Re: What are you doing right now?
Post by: Yooper on November 29, 2013, 12:13:02 pm
 :hello: ^Ceridwen, thank you for the info on the Pumpkin Roll.  I'll look it up and if I don't find anything I'll come back to you with hat in hand.  I will take your remark about your mother-in-law and never be demanding.  Yeah, whatever, Yoop.   :laugh:  She's lucky to have you, tho.

WHY does the plumbing, heating, something go wrong on a holiday?  I had a husband like that, too, btw.  He couldn't even fix a doorknob, so household fixit was my job for major unknown work I always said, "Shouldn't we call an expert on this, honey?  Hmmm?"   SMH.  One Thanksgiving I accidentally dropped my rubber glove down the kitchen sink and after many hunts for the tool box, a ghastly mess in the kitchen because nobody put a bucket under the sink when they took the catch tubing out, he finally cracked and called the plumber.  Luckily, his kid played on Rick's hockey team, so that was a major bonus.  But, what a fiasco and a funny memory now.  The holidays are not for wussies.

I loved shopping with you, you know what you want and don't endlessly dangle from one store to the next. :thumbsup:
You're rather efficient when it comes to shopping! (at least in the real world, I'm not so sure about the internet... :hide:)
You told that shop assistent (whom I found a little snooty and unfocused tbh) exactly what you wanted and wouldn't be swayed to try this or that.
Even in So-Cal you went in, got what you wanted, tried it on, and went back out.
I on the other hand was a little overwhelmed by some stores, remember that mall thing... :tehe:

^Black Friday is just Crazy Town.  It's different, I think, if you have little kids and they want one particular item or you're an adult who needs an electronic device.  But, I truly believe people get into a frenzy and buy things that will end up being buyer's remorse.  I wonder what the return rate on purchases are after Christmas.

^^Thanks for the thumbs up on my shopping skills, Akasha.  I tend to be a warrior about that and usually have a plan ahead of time and great sales resistance.  You stood firm with me with that distracted and pretentious sales lady.  Many thanks for that.  And, oh, yeah, your mall thing.   :laugh:   And then the guys with guns that freaked me out!  And you were all cool about it.  It's funny.  There are very few Americans who have ever actually seen an assault rifle in public.  And don't forget our cocoa and Mr. Handsome at the hotel......

As for me, I'm heading to a book that's got me riveted tonight.  Can't remember the name but it's about a Polish doctor in Poland, 1939 who saves many lives - true story and fascinating.  Hang on...."Country Of Ash".  Not lighthearted but keeps my priorities in line.

Good night, ladies (and gents?)

Oops.  Just saw this, speaking of Black Friday.  That's the holiday spirit, folks:  http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/11/29/21678849-women-get-into-black-friday-stun-gun-fight-inside-the-mall?lite (http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/11/29/21678849-women-get-into-black-friday-stun-gun-fight-inside-the-mall?lite)

Quote
One woman apparently used a stun gun on another after an all-out brawl inside of the Franklin Mills Mall in Northeast Philadelphia.
Mike Napolitano was in the mall with two of his friends when they came up on the fight.
"It started out, one couple was fighting with another couple. They had words, the guys got into a fight and then the girls," said Napolitano, who videotaped the melee. "One couple, they were like a family  and all, with a young child in a stroller."
The video shows the two women punching each other and someone in the crowd yelling, "No, stop."

Yup: food, alcohol, shopping, greed, aggression and trying to outdo each other with a higher price tagged present.
After all noting shows you care about each other better then getting/giving the newest hottest trendiest new item in town.
That's what Christmas is all about, right folks! (http://i1095.photobucket.com/albums/i462/akasha2411/Smileys/angry%20smiley/smiley24.gif) (http://s1095.photobucket.com/user/akasha2411/media/Smileys/angry%20smiley/smiley24.gif.html)

Trying to get it together and put a toe outside my house and see if it's safe to drive.  A friend is singing in a Christmas concert about 20 miles away this evening and not only do I suffer from night blindness but the roads are he##, they really are.  Don't know what to do.

Title: Re: What are you doing right now?
Post by: Yooper on December 12, 2013, 04:13:33 pm
^Thought about a taxi but that would be around $2/mile each way, not that I'm begrudging that but it wouldn't be any safer with the climate.  The concert is being held in an area north of here that is in a weather advisory area.  I also thought about getting a ride and that's a possibility; I'll check and see who's willing.  My friend who's singing would but they have to be there super early for practice and so on and so on.  This is the kind of thing that makes me truly *despise* the harshness of this area.  It prevents you from doing things in a pleasant way.  When I look out the window, I see two cars on the road.  Two.  And they're big big truck types.  Hmmm.  Gotta think on this one.

when in my youth I would go out in any kind of weather - remember driving to a party in a snowstorm - we had to stop every few minutes to wipe the car windshiled off because the wipers could not keep up with the snowfall! 

But now - middle aged me - like to stay put once ice shows up - I used to make fun of older woman who did not like to drive in the dark - LOL - well that is going to be me someday too!

So now - I am drinking hot tea with a cat on my lap keeping me warm - enjoying the dying embers in the fireplace !

Post by: Yooper on December 13, 2013, 01:29:50 pm
^Smart move.  I took the car pool route and went to the concert and I swear we should've put skates instead of wheels on the driver's car.  We were all over the road, but it was a lovely concert in a beautiful church and made it back safe and sound but it took forEVER.  I'm way too used to zipping here and there and not spending most of my life putting on layers of clothing just to walk to a car, then peeling it off, then putting it back on, then peeling it all off again.

All part of the airport security business, we scan every passenger, even the ones that don't move any more.. 8)
The coffin's end up in the belly of the plane next to the cargo (nowhere near your vuitton suitcase or prada bag don't worry ;))
It's usually elderly Muslims who want to be buried 'home' in Morocco or Turkey.
They have to be quick about it too, according to the religious law they have to be buried 24 h after death, not sure why though... :dontknow:
We get about 4 or 5 of them every other day or so..
As I said with the adults you get used to it after a few times but babies and kid's eugh that's still odd, it's such a small coffin ya know, it just doesn't look right... :sob:

^Is it Shark Wweek, fly? And, ^^Sounds lovely!

I've been pondering an interesting phenomenon that happened during my big Tapioca Pudding From Scratch Caper.  I followed the recipe to the letter.  In almost all circumstances, I'm a really good, intuitive cook.  But, when I checked on the cooled, finished product in the fridge, it appeared ruined.

The reason I'm making the stuff is to help somebody who's really sick and this is all that sounds good so I was more than usually disappointed,  I raced to the internet to find a solution before starting all over again.  Nothing.  I was shocked.  I'm so trained now not to think or remember that I never sat down and listened to the voice of my grandmother teaching me how to make sauces, gravies, etc.

It's also funny that while I was making it, I swear I could hear her scolding me about stopping the cooking process but I followed the internet recipe instead.  Shoulda listened.

In the end, I remembered knowledge that can only be passed down, tricks from almost 100 years ago.  And it worked, I was able to rescue it and it's like a perfect cloud this morning.

The point of this far too long post is, not everything is on the web and to take time to learn the strange and magical things that pass through the generations that defy explanation.

It was super cool.  And, no, I can't even write it down because it's one of those things that you "just know".  Freaky.

It also reminded me of my grandmother's saying to me, "Kissing don't last, cookin' do".  She was, but didn't know it, a master chef.

I know your kids are adults, but my father gave some little cousins of mine choc Xmas calendars and a great fight ensued, over who has the better calendar.. 2 boys btw. The calendars were exactly the same, just a different pic! So from now on the lesson for me is: when gifting kids sth, esp pre-school ones, gift them exactly the same thing. Older siblings are sometimes just as bad as toddlers  :sigh:

^The Amazon Echo is a device that does a ton of things.  Plays music of your choice, calls people for you, timer, news, information and entertainment hub.  Now, it finally controls my house lights by voice command (dims, too, plus will pulse lights in colors to music for parties).  Can also be controlled from my phone, so I can turn on lights , heat and locks remotely.  It’s also perfect for 911 or emergency calls.  You just ask it to call for help.  Fab.

I want to design my wedding dress. I want to wear pink and pearls. I want a 1920s style wedding dress with an arabic style take on the little hat (sorry dont know the name of it) and veil. I want it floor length silk with a cape to match because I want to wed in the cooold and then have a religious ceremony. I'm thinking of a pearl belt and my veil to be more like a ME scarf with dainty jewelles. So it will be 1920s-inspired dress with Ancient Celtic and Arabic style. I just haven't the finished design yet!!!!!!!!!!!! This is going to take a few more days..... at least...... maybe a few weeks even.... I won't know until I see what I want. :loveshower: :JOY: :stars:

I want my wedding to be in Munster, Eire or The Scottish Highlands in one of our ancestral homes and the religious ceremony will be in England in honour of my late beautiful, most wonderful grandmum.   :hug:

Well, I definitely have my ups and downs.  I find it therapeutic, so I continue.  It all started when a friend give my husband and I a rose bush when we bought our first house.  I read all I could about roses and built up a small and manageable rose garden.  Over the years I've stopped growing roses as they're a bit high maintenance where I live.  What worked for me was that I focused on only one kind of plant in the beginning, which made it less intimidating.  If you enjoy it, keep trying!  :flower:

Thanks guys!  Roses are my passion which is also thanks to grandma.  Her roses were amazing but she was in a kinder climate.

Just checked on my garden so am going to water tonight.  Super dry and low rain.

^Try mixing blue food color in your watering bucket.  A couple drops to a gallon right before the bloom leaves appear (the rust colored foliage). Do it about once a week.  Only for pale cream or pale pink varieties, tho.  Good luck!

^^^^^ Thanks for the suggestion. I'd never would have thought of using food colour on plants. :tehe: :shy: But YooperMod, I want a REAL blue rose and it just isn't going to happen any time soon... wah! Someone needs to hurry up and create one! !!!  :bouncy:

^You’re welcome.  Maybe you’ll create a blue rose.  If you get one with the food coloring, save the stamens.  You never know in magical rose world.

I am on my fourth day of waiting for my satellite tv service to get fixed.  They “upgraded their software”.  An hour and a half tech support wait time and no solution yet.    :stop:

I'm in Starbucks working at my computer, drinking the cafe and writing.... happy hour is every Friday so yay me!

^YooperMod I do so hope you managed to get your satellite up and running (I know it's been a while so you probably have :thumbsup:) and I hope you and your city are doing much better after the horrid weather and the unfortunate death of that little boy. I'm still sending you all good thoughts. Hope they're helping.  :hug: :flower: :hug: :hug:

^ Sorry, but no experience here hun.  You could write to MeAgain lol I’m sure she has ALL the experience you’d need to learn.

I’m running up and downstairs too much.  My two daughters have a tummy bug so there’s no rest for me, or them.

^Poor babies hope they're feeling better now.  :hug: I bet your calves and backsideare looking firmer so there's that anyway. :tehe: I almost had belly dancing lessons 18 years ago by a young woman from Brazil but didn't. I will take lessons by years end.

Yes, they are all better now and the eldest is back in school.  You're right about my calves and backside lol no one does that many stairs in a day.

I hope you do do the dancing lessons - they are fun and terribly good exercise for any woman.  The belly dancing works out so much!   :loveshower:

I'm just about to epilate my legs ouch ouch ouch.  Have no time for beauty parlour this week.  :dontknow:
