Why, oh why, do I have class on Saturday?

At least it's only 2 hours long, and not as dull as property...

Proteas was right. I can't catch a break this week.

Was going to run errands, do housework and game today. First, I ended up at the auto shop for a tire going. Then my infected toe got a lot worse so I went to the urgent care place. I have cellulitis and am on antibiotics. Also have a moratorium on ballet. Crap.

Lamesauce :( New week tomorrow so maybe things will turn around for you. Car repairs are always a pain in the ass. My dad used to buy whole extra sets of 4 rims that he kept winter tires on to make changing to them easier every year. It made for a great time saver if you popped a tire too because you could just grab one of the rims with a winter tire on it and be on your way while you drop the popped tire off to be fixed at the shop.

I'm considering finding some new outdoor/exercise activities so I'm not such a shut-in on days off. I took a wind surfing class last week and picked it up easily enough. Maybe I'll check out a karate class or something soon.

Standard operating proceedure for most auto owners up here.
the problem with it, especially for us country folk...is our tires are studded.
You get ticketed for using studded tires after the April 30, & can't go on before Oct 15...unless theres a big damn snow storm.

My dad didn't start buying studded tires until all the kids were driving age and after I wrecked the family car on black ice. But yeah, we had the same rule about using studs outside of winter. But in a pinch I'm sure a cop would let you off with a warning if you only have 1 studded tire while you bring the popped one to a shop. Hell, it sure beats driving on a donut with a 45mph max limit, especially if the closest tire store is an hour drive up the freeway.

Turns out I'm allergic to the antibiotic I was on. The doctor put me on a new one and I'm taking Benadryl until my face no longer looks like someone with cleats ran over it.

The way my luck has been recently, if I were on "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire," I'd phone a friend and get voice mail.

So I was getting all lost on the internet today and I came across an interesting story about users on reddit being banned for "spamming" and there was a story about a user named SolInvictus who was a moderator in the /politics section of all places and was a redditor-for-hire as it turns out.

Our solinvictus?! The dramaz!

Also, here's a pic of the type of motorcycle I bought a couple of weeks ago. No action shots yet. It's still in the break-in period so I've been babying it quite a lot. Going to get some hard saddle bags installed if the dealership can ever find the correct mounting kit.

Took yesterday off for my birthday. The husband surprised me with a spa day. The only thing is I did ask them to leave the lump hanging over my one toenail alone. That's leftover from the cellulitis and I'm getting it removed Monday. May have an ingrown toenail which started the whole mess too. We'll see what happens.

Parents are coming down tomorrow. Dad already got the Chocolate Ammo I sent for Father's Day.

Sounds like its family time for you today as well !

I've got the whole famn damily coming here today.
Nothing like a health scare to make all your relatives want to come see you.
Not sure if its all concern or looking to protect their interests in any possible inheritence if I kick off suddenly ~;)

My honey started a huge pork roast in the slow cooker hours ago, going to be a pulled pork, with her home baked beans, her own attempt at coleslaw that has something making it hot & its spicy , my families potato salad recipe that I've perfected, corn on the cob, & all the home made condiments from our garden last year, sweet mustard pickles, beets, chow-chow, salsa .... should be a good feed

I've got 6 types of home made wine all at least 4 months in the bottle, 2 are berry wines, (reddish) 2 different whites, A cab sav & an Italian (de brusio )
Now if only I was allowed to drink ! ! !

I personally think its way past time for drug developers to come up with drugs that work even better if you drink !
Make like designer pain killers that go with beer
Virus & beta blockers that work best with 3 or 4 glasses of wine .
Cancer Drugs that really kick ass if your having a couple of rum or whiskey shooters !

It says it's all sold out for the time being. Mystery boxes mysteriously become available whenever they need to clean out a desk or find space for more convention swag.

No, what happened was I reported the problem after I tried twice and nothing happened. Luis emailed me back and said they were having problems, and he was going to take the boxes down until they got the problem ironed out.

I saw the thread in general where he talked about that. The topic was about how this was the first time mystery boxes ahven't flown off the shelf. My guess is that everybody already has 5 copies of snow snow for lucy. Seriously, how many of those did they make?

Also, hi. I'm not dead.

There's a Greek festival at the Orthodox temple within walking distance. Which sounds fun, except it's noisy (and I work from home) and it's making traffic hell. Tons of parked cars, which makes me happy we have off-street parking. I do want to head over on Sunday though.

Just finished five weeks of an archaeological field school. It was quite intresting finding all sorts of artifacts. In the final days we found a late woodlen era post moles. First ever recorded in the state.

That sounds ridiculously interesting. I wanna be an archaeologist... and an anthropologist... and aphysicist, and an astronomer.. andandand. Sigh, I'm too fickle in my interests. I never want to do one thing enough to sacrifice my ability to do all the other things I like. I'm the donkey starving to death between two piles of hay. Or the dog who keeps getting distr.. SQUIRREL!

Kayaking is great! I used to work at a kayak and canoe shop. We'd rent them, sell them, plan trips for clients. Had some friends who were really into whitewater kayaking - that can get pretty intense.

I swear to God that soccer moms are more impatient than New Yorkers. If I'm in the middle of the crosswalk and you have just pulled out of a parking space in your giant SUV(BTW, what's your MPG in the city? Under 30? Lol!) why do you honk at me? In literally 3 seconds I'll be out of your way and out of your life, so why do you feel the need to express your impatience with a random stranger? Or are those 3 seconds so important you want to piss other people off because they are not as important as those 3 seconds?

Btw, to everyone here, Hi! Proof that there is life beyond death, or something like that.

You want to see real impatience !
Go to a busy ice cream spot & watch those people !
I swear they are worse than crackheads trying to score.

People get nuts when they can't get immediate access to their frozen drug of choice !

Its been one of my favorite activities since I was a kid.

Ads on NG can be weird sometimes. Yes, my friend just had a baby yesterday, so there's been discussion (and she's already home from the hospital after a natural birth!). Yes, I bought her and the family a themed cookie package for the occasion. But why is NG giving me natural diaper ads?! Nowhere in any of my purchases or discussions were there diapers.

Dear RydiaLockheart
Perhaps its because of your profile.
Possibly they know Rydia is a female aged (child bearing years) & so they are asuming you are a good target for diaper ads ~;)

OR I could be completely off the mark & your just lucky ~:p
