  1. TTTNE 463 - A Thread for Craziness

    Put me in the boat of those without HBO. Don't really care that I'm missing it though. Pretty indifferent at this point I think last season killed the joy of the show for me I will be watching the Incredibles with spawn instead, eating lemon basil cream shrimp pasta.

    How did the CT scan go? Are they looking for kidney stones? And yah, 96 oz of water per day is starting to wear on me. But if I even try not to drink a ton of water I get a headache and feel icky. So I'm stuck using the restroom at work like 6 times in 4 hours They now have organic Capri Sun should you feel like being adventurous. Is this the same fellow you mentioned a while back that you thought may have been interested but you weren't sure? Sounds lovely - keep up the good work And I'm 4'10" so yah, kissing has never not been awkward. But hey, when you aren't standing there's not much of a height difference And now to boring life stuff: I had a water balloon fight with my spawn today!! It was fun - but when I was putting him to bed he told me that he now has to nap at school in a separate room from the other kids. Now i knew that they had him in the same room but sort of partitioned off because he was talking and being distracting. I spoke with the teacher and told them I thought that making a 5 year rest for 2 hours (!!!) was a lot to ask of a kid that doesn't normally nap. I'm trying really hard to not lose my shit right now because he hates being alone. It's his biggest fear and yet they have him in a room, by himself, for like 2 hours I'm really not ok with that. And none of the staff bothered to tell me or run it by my approval. Ugh. Not a happy mama right now.

    Somehow I lost my quotes. Seems to happen with this fancy new site setup. I missed KiDs birthday - Happy Very Belated birthday KiD I hope it was just what you wanted Bucky Just teasing... good for you Bucky glad you enjoyed Vienna! So a few weeks ago I had my lab work done and it came back with elevated creatinine levels, low ALT and GFR of 60. All indications of kidney disease. Doctor said I may just not be hydrated enough ( I drink a ton of water!) so I was scared these last two weeks but managed to up my H2O intake to 3 liters daily and retested a few days ago and everything was pretty much in he normal territory *WHEW*! Talk about anxiety through the roof for two weeks. Hope y'all are enjoying life and loving to the fullest. I have been waiting for HBO to inform me of a free two months that they usually do every year just in for GoT. No such luck. I will take it as a sign to just not watch since I'm not sure I want to see their version before George's.

    I ended up being "Lady O" cause all the variations on Olenna were in use. My original handle was Husbandtobears but everyone thought I was a guy and most didn't actually get the reference, which I found odd. So Lady O I shall be. I'm good with that. My little Lucy was very sick yesterday when we were at Universal Studios. Thank goodness my mom was there with the pups because she had to go in to the animal emergency hospital. So between this month and last I have spent $400 in vet bills on each dog Such is the life of loving your pets. on the bright side - it is my spring break and it feels nice to not go to work for a week
  5. The Walking Dead Season 6 [Comic Spoilers]

    Agreed. At this point it would have to be Rick dying for anyone to care one iota. Abe was trying to "man up" when the bat was pointed at him and if they stick to what Negan's personality is supposed to be I doubt he would give Abe the satisfaction of being a martyr and going out like a hero. I still think it will be Glenn or possibly Eugene. But like you said, nobody will care. And we are coming to the most boring part of the comics, imo, so I'm not sure how they are going to keep viewers engaged other than bringing in new characters from the Kingdom.

    Poor Enid is still in the closet.
  7. The Walking Dead Season 6 [Comic Spoilers]

    Gonna have to agree with the majority. Major let down for a finale. How are viewers supposed to believe that the Saviors are that organized yet they botched every move they made previously? Or are we supposed to believe that was intentional? JDM was the only high point of the episode apart from Carol not being Lucilled. I dunno. I would have said that they wouldn't wuss out and not kill a major character but now it wouldn't surprise me. They set it up for Eugene to be the chosen one. And he's made to be so pathetic that it would be sad to watch his head cave in. no matter who it is that died it really doesn't mean shit anymore because the impact it would have had is entirely lost now by their crappy decision to not show it. Thanks Gimple. I will say that it would be messed up if it was Daryl and they're both sitting on the TD like it's nothing.

    Sorry for the DP but this is worthy. I wish I could sig this because this so succinctly sums up exactly how I feel.

    Lady O the Old That fits quite well! I don't necessarily correlate being introverted with being depressed - I actually find I am happiest when I am by myself with my own company but coincidentally I am diagnosed as depressed though I believe that to be a result of all the stress I carry. I find now that it is the social activities that cause me anxiety and depression. And like you, I find I feel right where I belong when I am with my son and family, which is a very nice feeling. I can only speak to this online social group as I haven't spent much time anywhere else on the web. But I consider myself quite lucky to be in the online company with this awesome group. I only wish I would have figured it out a bit earlier. I was always working full time and going to school full time so I never really had time to do much of anything. I think at this point I can count my friends on one hand. I used to be kind of embarrassed by that but now I don't care. I do sometimes wish I had a group of friends to do things like talk about comics or tv shows or watch shows together but any time I look for those things on places like Meet Up I realize I don't have anyone to watch my son if I were to join in. And let me tell you - the "mommy" groups on those places are absolutely terrifying. Tried that once and was like NO F*ing thank you. I do wish more of us were closer to each other. I still feel so badly for being so feisty with you when you said you didn't feel pretty or not being able to be intelligent and pretty? I would have better served myself if I had simply just explained that what I meant is that when you get to a certain age and look back at yourself you want to grab hold and shake the old you because time is precious and doubting yourself or having insecurities is a debility that hinders happiness that time can not replace. Anyway, hold on to the time with your grandmother because those moments are also precious and probably even more so for your grandmother. There is something very healing about being around older people, imo. About FB and fabrication... I have a friend that I've known for about a decade now, and although there are aspects of her personality that irk me I just accepted them as being who she is. Well, now that I am on FB - OMG- I can hardly tolerate her posts. Which is so mean of me, but it is the truth they are all selfies that are supposed to be about her child but are really about her taking a picture of herself. Which really bugs me. I guess I see how in love with herself she is. I suppose I shouldn't be bothered since it means she just has confidence? But it does. I guess because the premise is that it is supposed to be focused on her kid. I sometimes regret having started FB And sometimes I feel strange for not being lonely and enjoying being by myself so much. I feel like it should not be so enjoyable. I really think I would be a successful recluse. Which is exactly opposite of how I felt in my 20's at which time I always felt like a loser if I didn't have plans lined up for my weekend. Of course, that goes back to wishing I could shake the old me and say that there will be a time when you will really enjoy sitting at home on the computer or in front of the tv or a book on the weekend!

    It's funny, in high school and college I had a very wide circle of friends, not even really by my making any real effort. I just did. But I only had a select few that I really was close toand even then I was always very much alone in many respects. I guess just an introvert pretending to be social. Now I have very, very few friends. Mostly because I am pretty dull socially. And my friends have all scattered to different states and countries. But I don't drink really or party and even though I'm sorta older and a mother - most other parents my age still party all the time or are into stuff I'm not into (i.e. I've met quite a few swingers around here and peopleinto drugs). And as you said, it's too much effort. I see my friends on FB doing all these fitness and nightlife things and I think to myself, eh, too much effort. I'll watch Netflix and play games with my kid and be just as happy. This could also be depression sometimes I really think something must be wrong with me as I prefer the company of my child and family to other adults.

    I didn't mean to say that you don't - just a generality about being friends with people that have dissimilar interests. I guess I don't actually have friends that are interested in geeky things that I am interested in (besides my sister) which is why I am on this forum. I don't often meet "geeks" so I suppose I'm missing out on that friendship level. They must be here somewhere in SoCal, I just haven't figured out where. So most of my friendships are based on knowing neat people that I don't necessarily have much in common with I didn't intend to come off snarky, just trying to relate it to my own experiences.

    awesome! To learn different and new things outside of your comfort zone from people you may have nothing in common with? Apparentlythis womanneeded help in that department. How can we forget the ultimateDemonic vagina?

    Mmmmm. Apples - I will trade you my grapefruit tree for your apple tree! I need to have to charity people come out and pick all the grapefruit. Usually ends up being an 800 lb donation and there's still lots left. I have grown both raspberries and strawberries successfully buy the last 2 years have been so hot and dry that nothing survived We have had some rain this year so my gardens are doing very well. For now. Now it's just a countdown to OITNB. I'm far more excited for that than GoT. Happy Thursday to y'all! Hubby is home for a few days and the spawn is happy.
