Because people on the east coast forget where you live and call before you would normally wake up.

Up at 4:45am to plow the snow from the driveway before getting to work at 6:30am.

That was Klez's 2nd guess.


Plow? Snow?

Is this return of the pub crud? Not a cold, not the flu, but super annoying.

Mild sore throat
Minor cough
mild headache
and a general yuckiness feeling going on three days not getting better or worse.

If you're missing mild congestion I'll trade that for the mild headache you're working with.

Blergh.

I love roku so much. I've been struggling with the amazon cloud player on there because of the 250 song limit. Today I discovered there is a private google music channel. And it works! Hooray!

Why? How?

How does such a little kitty take up the whole bed? Why does she do this?

And then she curls up all cute and makes you feel guilty about moving her!

I saw HitAnyKey42 on wine.woot! and clicked "I want one!"

Also, I feel like once there was a time when I could spend hours actively online, interacting with people. Now if it takes me twenty minutes to catch up, that's a long time. Where has everyone gone? What sites did I used to go to that would suck my life away? is it me? Have i changed, or has the online community changed? Perhaps a little of both?

Ponder.

Well, we no longer have 30+ pages in the Pub each week.

Plus, with the three a week offers on Wine.Woot, there was more interaction on the Wine thread. Now, with daily offers, it's too hard to keep up, so most just lurk. If they bother, that is. I know I don't bother anymore.

So might be in the market for new cell phones soon. Currently hubby and I have iPhone 4. Might think about changing to Samsung Galaxy. But not sure which one? Or should I wait until G4 comes out?

I guess Buffalo people will stop wootlegging from Michigan now for Trader Joe stuff. I agree with Sparky, I'm here on the pub but I very rarely check the main thread, plus people seemed to have gotten busier.

There's never a good time to buy a cell phone. Take a look at what's currently available and pick one unless something you really want is available soon. Keep in mind that many new handsets take a few extra months to come to the US so that they have time to load them all up with bloatware.

I'm liking the new crop of 1280x720 and 1920x1080 screens with seriously high dpi. Puts the iphone's high dpi to shame

I'm sucked into work more completely most of the time these days. That and the main thread isn't what it used to be. Lots more kvetching and a lot less wine talk. Glad I learned a bunch back in my first couple years lurking here

Have you ever seen a neurologist for better migraine control? I suspect if you get your migraines under control you have fewer sinus symptoms.

Sorry about both. Maybe if you snorted Apple Vinegar? Or is that drinking it? Or whatever it was they talked about using AV for.

Here on the northern plains, we don't expect to see 67 degrees until May or so.

Our high standard of living and quality of life?

Not to mention some of the highest taxes in the nation, and less pay for the same jobs!

On another, more happy, note, is your wine in?
