yobbery: catmandu: yobbery: I passed my yearly physical today with flying colors. EKG showed the ticker is solid, cholesterol, BP, pulse...etc. are all spot on. Most of all the lungs sound great. Only issue is GERD, which I'll be starting Prilosec tomorrow. Not too shabby considering I've spent most of that past year on my ass in the man cave.

I'll be spending the day tomorrow tuning up my gym equipment now that I've been cleared. I've got about 60 pounds to lose. I've done it before...I'll do it again.


Did you get a scrip for the Prilosec? If not, email me and I can give you my source for inexpensive OTC.

Yes, I have a script. Thank you!

One strange thing I forgot to mention is she ordered an HIV and HEP C tests??? In my typical smartass fashion I snapped back with "Is there something about your index finger you need to tell me about?" Must have been an original because it gave her a case of the intermittent giggles for a few minutes. Anyway, they are NIH recommends that anyone born between 19blah and 19blah-later have these tests done.

HIV....there's no way. HEP-C...slight possibility. I've worked in a hospital for 25 years now and more importantly my mother contracted HEP-C when she was in the nursing home.

Last year (not this last hospitalization, but the one before it) I had to have blood transfusions because of my anemia being so severe. I did not know they did that. What I also did not know, is they wanted me tested for HIV afterward. Twice, some months apart. I said "Where dafuq they get their blood? Isn't it tested or anything? OMGs!!!" because maybe like you, I was a teen in an era where we were just identifying "GRID" and then we found out anyone could get it, and it was super scary and everyone is gonna die. Being an inner city type Angeleno, I did know people who eventually died of it. To this day, even though I know better than to freak out over it, I still do freak out a tiny bit inside when I hear "HIV" even if they're just talking about the test.

Blood testing before giving the blood to someone is done, just like we all know, but "things can happen". Luckily (expectedly???), they did not happen to me. If you also were spending your adult formative years during that same period of time I was turning into a little "can now be tried as an adult in most states" terror, I can only imagine what that felt like to be told they wanted to test you for HIV. Actually, I can't "imagine" it. I REMEMBER it. It was awful. It was an accusation and a doom sayin' and a whole bunch of other stuff all rolled into one crappy package, wrapped in lab forms and cloaked in clinic-speak. They totally damaged us* psychologically back in the day, you know. Just know that YOU WILL BE FINE. I think it's more the psychological blow and my perception of it being an insult (totally unfounded and I KNEW it was an unfounded perception of being insulted) that set me off more than actually believing "OMGs! They just killed me trying to not let me die!" The chances of me having it from ANY source were exceptionally low, so I just took the gut punch, got my tests when it was the time to do so and everything was fine.

/*or maybe that was just me that got a bit dinged in the head back then
//I really doubt it, though
///at least I didn't even a teeny tiny bit buy into the "marijuana, black clothing, horror movies and/or enjoyment of heavy metal musical acts causes prostitution, Satan worship, murderous rampages and brain damage" crud

I got mah nails did!


YAY!!! If I have the energy today, I will do mine! I have this lovely purple velour wench style patchwork blouse (so there are other colors on it - the background color is purple) that I think I can actually match (color wise) on my nails. I have already gathered a few colors from my collection of Julep polishes and will look at them a few times during the day, until I figure out how/what to do with them to honor the awesome wench blouse.

Reddit had this days ago.  Reddit is such a better site, I come back to Fark about once every week or two, to see if there is anything interesting, and if there is, Reddit already did it days ago.  What is there like 7 or 8 "sub-Farks"  with Reddit there are so many you can never get through them all.  On Fark you can get through the whole website in 30 minutes..


/Plus what goes for intelligent conversation on Fark is "you're an idiot" "no, you're an idiot"

We got the worst of the weather on Wednesday.  After a busy day playing in the snow and then urping up what looked more like a feather ball than a hairball (she was hunting birds again) this is how Alice decided to spend the evening.
I Hope any of the Caterdayers closer to Atlanta weren't caught in the power outages.  They got ice, we were farther north and got mostly snow.

But this is Fark, not Reddit. Why would anyone ban you here? We do not cry like little girls with skinned knees and then bring down the ban hammer on people who think they are slighting us by not liking the same things we like. That would just be silly.

Just look at cats and be happy, then go on your merry way, spreading sunshine and joy. It's kind of the point. That's why this is "Caturday on Fark" and not a meeting of the National Coalition of Independent Scholars.


Here, have a kitten!

Oh, wow. I lost track of time and did not realize how many years I was on Fark before I even signed up for an account (and how much even longer it was before I quit lurking!). I remember the Early Years of Caturday! I actually remember pre-Caturday Fark. Which is scary, in its own way.

Do we get an official old-timers badge for lurking? lol! I bet there's a ton of folks who have been around that long as well and who never did de-lurk.

Could baby penguins look more like they were designed by a Japanese cartoonist? I've seen plenty of animals and plants that were apparently designed by Dr. Seuss (Madagascar is full of them), but a Manga cartoonist did Antarctica.

Watched "Maury" last night cos my work was done and there was nothing else until "Law and Order: Criminal Intent" came on.
Holee fark...is there some sort of thing they have to sign that states they may NOT speak in a normal tone of voice but must either yell or sob hysterically? I won't even go into the "How the hell did these people ever come to fark each other in the first place?" factor...
not to mention "Ever hear of 'safe sex' or 'birth control'?"

Raven did watch it with me...at least, she sat on my lap and purred when she wasn't schooling Casper...

Most of skylight encroppinated oot. Backstory, summat lengthy:
This is what you see when you have a skylight, and a cat by wienzer,  10PMish Valentines Day
reddit comments, only few;
cucumbers: I have a relevant story!  Growing up, my two friends (sisters) had two huge Maine Coon cats, about 20 pounds each. Both were accomplished and talented hunters, regularly bringing down squirrels and rabbits. Majestic beasts.
Anyway, their next-door neighbour was a tiny old biatch of a lady who hated cats. This woman was hosting a little luncheon tea party with some gal pals in her living room, which had a skylight. Long story short, one of the ladies gazes skyward at the skylight, where lo and behold, one of the cats was sprawled out enjoying a bloody rat meal.

usernamenumber3:  This made me disturbingly happy.
bandman614; You know, if you had some lipstick, you could have some interesting art there. And yes, I've outed myself as a former Farker.
imgur comments, only few;
secondcityguitars: Pussy in the sky with no diamonds.
DrinkingBaby: I always upvote pussy
wandergeist: I don't have a cat, so on my skylight I get crow ass.
All these were adjacent on their sites of origin.
