Or, they do make orajel, and motrin, for things like this.



Using the latter two. Just venting to those who have gone through the same, most multiple times, you included.

Yes, figured you were venting. I should have just said, "that sucks, hope it doesn't last long."

No, no. I liked the brandy suggestion.

Yes, stick with the brandy. I just did the typical thing I usually do, which is offer advice in how to fix it as my way of empathizing with your pain.

Since I'm still processing everything that happened to me recently, I missed a lot of the pub. Sparky Les Mis stage production is sung all the way through, for the movie they actually added extra singing dialog to explain things. So if you dont like things sung all the way through, then the musical is not for you. If you are looking for some decent singing of the stage production, look up the 10th anniversary dream cast production. In my opinion it features the best Javert. But like wine, musicals are also personal preferences

It was pretty sweet spending most of yesterday cleaning my old son's room. He kinda helped...not really. Would have been less painful pulling teeth.

At least my younger son was really impressed with the cleaning! sigh...

I told him I'd take him to Dairy Queen afterwards. He laughed and said he could just drive himself and not clean. He's 22.

Just when I thought it was safe ....

Went out on some errands while the gardener was gardening. Came back and was like, "Where are my front night lights?"

Wondered if the gardener had done something with them, but no, they weren't there when he was edging either.

Razzle fracking no-goodnicks stole them in the middle of the night!


I had 6 of the Westinghouse Solar Lights out in front. However, 3 out of the 6 wouldn't charge, so I was using rechargeable batteries on them. Plus one more would last a while, but the battery would need to eventually be switched.

Not so bad, but last night I put in the longer lasting batteries in the 3. Scum-sucking hamster dance!



If I could only catch them, you know that would be the result!

By the way TT, can you remind the code monkeys we still need the search feature on our Orders?

I had to go to page 24 (of 98!) to find the info on my stolen solar lights!


And they need to fix the Shipping/Tracking links on the Account page so it DOESN'T take you away from the Account page! So irritating!

It used to open the appropriate tracking page in a new tab, but it doesn't do that anymore.

Oh stop your blubbering!

Just turned in a feature request on both. I know we've requested Search before but it never hurts to put it in again. I agree that that the tracking info should open in a new tab.

Security lights? These were decorative. But I do need to change out my front porch light to the one with Motion detection. That may have deterred the hamsters from dancing to begin with.


Or I could install the electrocution device.

We suggested to my niece that she use Southern Comfort when one of her boys was teething. She was a bit worried that her husband, the anesthesiologist would notice and have a problem with this--of course, he was at work all day and not dealing with any of it!

Exhaustion has set in already. We had a meeting with our district superintendent and all of the big wigs yesterday. Today a two hour meeting in building.

My roommate is going to drive me crazy! Apparently, during the summer, the keyboard from my (the district issued) desktop computer had been dropped and the leg on it broke. I decided to give her the "old" computer. She noticed the damage immediately when I passed that computer on to her. I figure that I should be given access to a laptop to use as I travel around the world on a daily basis. All travelers are also to be given a desktop in their homebase. The "new" desktop version arrived today but needed to be reconfigured. At some point, while I was out of the room, she actually had the audacity to switch keyboards on me! Our techie guy came by to continue setup and wondered why I had a pack of 4 X 6 cards under the keyboard. I told him what happened. He will be getting me a new keyboard.

First day of classes is tomorrow. It is 10:26 PM and I still have to set up seating charts and make up name tags! Urg!

I do love watching the filters turn up in hilarious situations. My fav was during a woot-off when a bunch of wooters were harassing some white box new wooters. They kept bragging about their stats. So I changed stats to bunions. Seconds later a post "Have you seen my bunions!?!?!". I laughed so hard. Wooters got a kick out of it too.
