spinach gunk: Real Women Drink Akvavit: Don't you hate it when you wake up in the middle of the night and you're hungry? How does that even happen? What was I doing in my sleep?!?

Makes you wonder, doesn't it?  One morning a couple weeks ago I woke up with one aching buttcheek.  Just the right one.  It felt sore and tired, like just that one half of my ass had been working out at the gym all day, without the rest of me.  It was fine when I went to bed.  I felt like I'd slept normally.  WTF??

Mysteries of the universe!!

[img.fark.net image 493x328]

Last night I laid awake in bed for an irritating amount of time wondering why the shiny silvery plating on American coins doesn't meet around the edges.  Then I had a dream that all the fruits & vegetables in the grocery store would fly up in flocks to roost on the walls and ceiling of the store at night when it was closed.

Perhaps the meds adjustment just threw your body off a little?  Hope everything is OK.
:)


HA!  Who needs sleep to see all THAT?

Real Women Drink Akvavit: What happens when sleep makes you feel RESTED for a change!

YAY! That's such a nice a nice change from being 'concious but dragged-out and feeling guilty cos you should be DOING SOMETHING because you're concious'. Did that make sense?

I'm surfacing after nearly 24 hours with the sandman (with bathroom breaks).
Got home Sunday morning hurting to the point of tears. Saturday night I tore apart the living room, vaccuumed under and behind the couches and chairs...which entails turning them over. The Minion would have helped had I asked, but he'd gone to bed by then. Dragging the residents outta bed to juggle furniture is Not Done and can get one in a lot of trouble. Then I did four loads of laundry, including the seat covers for the couches (so glad they got the removable washable kind, though I think that was more by accident)...think there was about a half gallon of dried spilled coffee there. There was a bunch of trash downstairs that it's Somebody Else's job to take up. I'm the Designated Somebody Else for a lotta shiat...not that I'm a better person, I just have a lower tolerance for looking at something before having to get up and DEAL with it.

Getting up the stairs is fun, even when it's just me. I have to sort of brachiate up the stair rails (my knees are severely arthritic) and when you add two loads of laundry, a bag of garbage, a big damn broken-down box, two buckets (one with dirty dishes, one with the bathroom cleaning stuff) it takes a while. Think it must look rather funny from the head of the stair case as various bits and pieces come flying forth before I finally emerge...

Got everything put away, little details taken care of and Raven packed up ready to GO as soon as House Idiot showed up so I wouldn't have to deal with her. Nice enough person, means well I'm sure, but she doesn't listen and is an IDIOT. This is not just my opinion, just so's you know.

"Here, let me help you!" Grabs my arm and yanks, even though I'm standing. Doesn't help, believe me. "No, that's OK, I'm fine!"
Takes my bag, then puts about 6 feet on the FAR SIDE of my car.
I always load it into the passenger side with Raven's carrier. Doesn't sound like much, right?
Walk past the car, pick up the bag (which is fairly heavy), bring it back around the car and load it in. Except I am dealing with knees, shoulders, and an enormous bone spur in my right foot...all of which are screaming "WE HAVE HAD E-FARKING-NUFF!!!"

I don't like to use the word 'agony'...but have no qualms about "I FARKING HURT!"
Gonna stop here...the jumping text box is starting to annoy me. >:-(

Taking a little time out to add to the previous wishes for the Universe to leave Alien alone.  Don't make me get Neil DeGrasse-Tyson and have him and the Cosmos WHUP your ass, Universe!

On a similar note, any Canadian regulars or lurkers out there?  What do you know about possible government assistance for someone in Alien's perdicament?  Can she get into an assisted living facility given the memory problems she suffers due to her many brain surgeries?  Are there options for a pro caregiver to visit her periodically to check on her?  I'm not sure what her actual situation is (ie: is she not entitled, is she too proud to ask for state aid, etc), but it would be nice if someone or someones could research this and offer options here on Caturday.  I remember when I could've used some public assistance between jobs and never got it because I was too proud to ask.

Wish I could find someone to help me with my yard...
Got balance issues among everything else and don't want to be out there alone.
It's sooo embarrassing to have to press the "Help I've fallen and can't get up!" button out in the middle of one's yard (I'm assured it will work there).

OK. The joke's over. I want my younger body back (the nice, strong one that functioned properly and the joints didn't hurt alla time) now please.

The point is taken, and I will take MUCH better care and pay attention to it.
PLEASE?

Oh, hey, resident experts - anyone have experience with those scent-deterrents?

TV-top unlikely, methinks..  Speaker-top offers three things the TV doesn't..  A corner/cubby-hole (TV makes a safe wall), magnets (at least two 'super' magnets in that unit..mebbe three..looks like might have a mini-tweeter..  Cats..and many other critters..can sense that..), and vibration (if the speakers are on/active while they're up there..)  The TV just can't compete..  ;)

Fer the counter-hopping..?  Squirt bottle and resolve/vigilance..seriously..  My cat (rest o'the houshold hates him) is a counter-jumper..but, with squirt-bottle training..he runs from the kitchen or *immediately* is down from the counter the moment any human enters the room..  Only issue is overnite, when is unlikely a human would be around..  Solution..?  DON'T LEAVE OPEN FOOD ON THE COUNTER OVERNIGHT...!

By Bast, If I could *just* get the other two in the house to *understand* that..98% of the problems would go away..

But, I rant..  :P   Seriously..  Squirt bottle..

Hey TR. I'll try switching up the words this week, although snapping and pointing only ever gets me a disdainful stare in return.. y'know, one of those "silly hooman, what you want doesn't matter" kinda stares. But the foil idea is a new one on me.. thanks kindly! :)

I gave in and now leave a tap dribbling in the bath, Henry refuses to drink anywhere else now.  He also gets miffed when I have a bath because I get bubbles all over his drinking den.

Hi CLTD.

The speakers are amplified monitors, so plenty of magnets and a bit of heat out the back-panel too. Makes sense as a kitty-spot for sure, what with the "tower above my hoomans in supremacy" positioning. Julian also parks his butt on the clockradio in the morning, so their butts must be attuned to sound. ;)

Abby is weird. She enjoys water. She just shows up wet from time to time, and she'll walk under a running tap and just let it splash on her with no regard, which gets to the heart of why she's jumping up on the kitchen counter now - she's in love with sinks. Something about watching the motion of the water go around the sink and down the drain fascinates her. I don't think a squirt gun will work with her, as flicking water at her from a running faucet does nothing to deter her. We just finished a 10 minute supremacy battle as I tried to clean the kitchen (which means turning the tap on and off) and she repeatedly jumped up to investigate the sink...  in the end I had her doing cutesy upside-down head rolls of submission on the floor that led to finger bites, so that's something I guess.

My real concern is Julian will learn the behaviour and I'll come home to find he's eaten a bunch of scones or bread off the counter, like his Christmas-eve muffin-top ate-through-the-bag sampling. I should probably get a breadbox sooner rather than later...
