My Sweetie (rest his soul) was very much like that for the first few years. He mellowed with age and it did make life better for all of us. He had to get to it in his own good time though.
Because dog people want to make friend with all the dogs. And sometimes, feel extremely rejected if a dog is like “nope.”
Oh, I know how that goes! I have 4 boys, and the chaos level can just ramp up... and up... and up...! They’re older now (14, 16, 18, and 20), but when they were little there were basically 2 options: embrace the insanity, or try to bring it down to managable levels. Sometimes, being quieter than they were could lower …
Since leaving academics I’m kinda surrounded by these folks where I live and work now. (Before it was just where I lived, but I could ignore them because I was at work all day!) The tongue biting strain is real. Just now I had a conversation where I made a joke about my parents listening to too much Rush Limbaugh and…
I have already started itching and peeling. Eep!
Yall dealing with a depressed friend is hard.
Further to my mushrooming adventures, I’ve created a jar of highly delicious pickled mushrooms - principally flavored with dill, garlic, and bay leaf. And now I’m like, what do I do with these besides just eating them straight? Any ideas, hivemind? Recipes that use pickled mushrooms?
Very nice weekend - Saturday I took part in a fun swimming event. 2km/1.2miles swimming with the current, no time requirements, just for enjoyment. And if you want to, you can cuddle a flotation device and have a chat while drifting downriver. Loved it! and because I had time afterwards, I went for a first joyride in…
I had a “good” weekend, but it was another one that drove home the difference between “Saturday morning” mommy and “Sunday evening” mommy. Saturday morning mommy is ready for anything and super patient and eager to have fun with the kids. Sunday evening mommy feels like she has been hearing non-stop whining or happily…
This was one was linked at the bottom for me. I want to live in this world.
i just woke up thinking im late for work
I’m at home anxiously awaiting my buddies’ arrival! I can’t wait to see them! I made the first batch fo gumbo - chicken and sausage. I’m gonna let it simmer for a bit longer before I add the file powder to it. It’s yummy!!!
With one of my old bosses it was apparently a real thing. I’d get into work and find an email in my inbox from 3AM, and then a second one from 8 AM angrily asking why I hadn’t answered the 3AM one.
Our sales/account management guy has successfully convinced our boss that he needs to not be “micromanaged” any more. He is not micromanaged, but he is routinely called out by other people in the company for 1) not doing his job 2) making large critical mistakes at his job 3) not understanding the basic tenets of how…
We've got slightly less than 2 weeks until our overnight stay at London Zoo!
Happy Anniversary to you!
“The details sound consistent with someone who may have been a first responder, who violated HIPAA because they had news of a famous patient.”
“about as far as I’m willing to consider conspiracy-wise right now, is that maybe some of the people who would find his death convenient, maybe helped arrange things so he had ample opportunity to take his own life.”
You and PumpkinSpies are both going to hell, lol. See you there.
Yep. Piece of shit. No way around that one. And to guilt her like that about how she could have had it worse so he can just galavant around and take ZERO responsibility in something he agreed to? Wow. That would seriously be grounds for me to nope the fuck out but of course plan for that because I’m guessing this one…
