Re: The Rumpus Room


Hello, everyone! It's 50F, cloudy, and we're under a flood warning. Not that I live in a flood zone or anything.

I'm sorry about Andrew, Lis. If he were my congressman (I know he isn't since mine is not running for re-election), I'd consider not voting for him because anyone who treats his staff so badly probably doesn't have much regard for working stiffs trying to make a living.

MsR - good on you knitting, and yes, it can be hard on the hands. The hands sometimes need rest. I've had to do that.

DH got a phone call from - according to Caller ID - "Cardiac Ass." It's his cardiologist's office reminding him of tomorrow's appointment. The group's name is Cardiac Associates, not Cardiac Ass, but that's how their number shows up on Caller ID. Am I the only old fart not seeing a cardiologist? Not complaining, I seem to be seeing a lot of the ophthalmologist anyways.

I'm not seeing one yet, Birdz, but if I ever do, I hope she calls herself that.

Messy day. 48 degrees and drizzling. I hope it gets it out of its system today. My yard people are supposed to come this week.

I'm not seeing one, either, Birdz. Just the damnable diabetes and GERD bedevil me, so far. And, of course, the arthritis.

If I don't have to take a particular medication, I don't take it. Big Pharma is out to kill us.

Re: The Rumpus Room


I started seeing my cardiologist last February because I thought it was probably a good idea, and my Doc agreed. I'm glad that I did. You get tested and learn that you're OK!

He did change my BP medication this time after my BP was up and I told him my history.

I was afraid of Celebrex too, but my doctor thinks it's safe for my system; and it certainly has made my life better.

It was supposed to stop raining by 11:00 AM and warm up to 50F. It is now 2:00 PM and still raining; the temperature is 43F.

The weather forecasters have turned into lying politicians, promising something better and delivering something worse.

Re: The Rumpus Room


Hi, all. I wish I could share our weather. I’m enjoying it while it lasts. After weathering a bit of a storm yesterday, we have cool weather and clear skies. After some errands this morning I decided take advantage of the coolness and to mow the back yard, which I did. I managed to run over my key fob and mangle my car key in the process. *sigh* Of course, before going outside and retracing my path on the mower we searched the house multiple times. Sandy finally found them outside near the gate. It will cost about $75 to replace them both. It could be worse, but I won’t be without spares. Ah well, small troubles.

I’ll be trying my hand at golf again this coming Wednesday. I’m going to practice a few swings tomorrow first, though. Hopefully my back issues were a one time event. I’m going to stretch before swinging this time.

No cardiologist for me either. I monitor my BP which I take a low dose med for and it is good so, unless that changes or some other things arise, I’ll keep it that way. I am closely monitored on so many fronts I figure any oddities will be detected. And I check all of my own reports and labs as well.

I’ll have a Gold Margarita, please, Ramundo.

I'm happy to hear that you were able to mow the yard without mangling your muscles, Brick. Stretches can't be overrated.

Good to hear from Brick. My yard man has to wait until the roofing stuff isn't in the yard. It's OK because the stuff that was up and bloomed has [sign in to see URL].

Got a nose breather for my CPAP today. Had a good conversation about all of it with the young lady. It usually takes time for folks to get used to all of it and figure out what works.

I got some fine whole fresh green beans from my grocery store along with some ground chuck. It's smoked chuckburger steak and green beans for dindin!

Re: The Rumpus Room


Thanks for the good thoughts for Andrew. Birdz, he's just west of Chicago. Don't want to put his name back up here again, in case his office has some kind of bot that searches for his name. I certainly wouldn't have voted for him, given how he treats his staff. You'd think he would catch on -- Only one member of his entire staff (office AND campaign staff) has been there longer than Andrew -- and he's looking. The campaign manager is actively interviewing, and the finance director was planning to turn in his notice Sunday. If it were me, I'd be trying to figure out why my entire staff keeps turning over. The workload is crushing -- but the personal insults are just disgusting. We're holding onto the fact that it's GOOD for him to be out from under that, and that we are in a financial position that we can help him float for a little bit. But I'm hoping something comes through very quickly.

Meanwhile, something still has me under the weather. I spent almost all of yesterday dozing on and off.... Same thing all day today, until I had to go to a school board meeting. Not sure what it is... Just exhausted. Don't really feel sick. Thursday and Friday, I had what for all the world felt like sciatica. That is completely gone now. Just entirely wiped out.

Good news is that I got my fourth chapter of questions sent out. About halfway through the next chapter's questions. And then just one more chapter left! Must be done by May 1. I'm feeling very good about getting this done by deadline. No pressure this time. emoticon

Re: The Rumpus Room


Lis, I just went back and read about Andrew’s shabby treatment. I was saddened to see it. It seems as though it might be for the best, especially if he wasn’t happy working there. That’s not justifying the Congressman’s behavior just looking for the silver lining for Andrew. I hope it leads to a better opportunity for him.

Re: The Rumpus Room


Thanks, Brick. The Congressman's behavior was just deplorable.... Really sad to see from a Dem. Especially when he goes on and on, claiming to be all about protecting workers' rights, when he treats his own workers badly. Ugh. But it IS good for Andrew to be out of there. I have been more worried about him than I've been willing to let on. The few times he has been able to come home, he has slept most of the day out of sheer exhaustion. He did the same thing today. We're hoping he'll get on with someone who appreciates him....

Well, I've spent the last two hours in a nightgown, under a thick robe, under two thick blankets -- shivering the entire time. I have been running ice cold for a week -- and I NEVER run cold. But I don't have a fever. *sigh* What the heck.... Heading for bed to see if THAT will help....

Re: The Rumpus Room


I want to be careful not to get political in the Rumpus Room, but sometimes I really miss Raoul Dangerfield, a/k/a Noel Bourasaw. He would be beside himself in enjoyment of today's political news and would have something utterly appropriate, and probably hysterically funny, to say.

Cooter and I have watched his eyes twinkle in amusement, and Cooter can probably picture those eyes now as well as I can. "Client Number 3 was Sean Hannity?" I can hear him sputter and laugh.

Ah, Raoul, I hope you're enjoying living among hot babes on the Celestial Riviera, smoking a bowl of primo stuff. I wouldn't begrudge you a moment of it, but sometimes I wish we could have you here again, just for a bon mot or two.

Re: The Rumpus Room


Good morning, all. Much to my amazement, it's not raining at the moment! Instead, we have 45F, broken clouds, and some sunshine sneaking through. So that's what sunshine looks like...

I think I can knit again today, so it'll be back at the hats. I hope that works.

Coffee, please, Tanya.

It was sunny in town when I went in to fill up with gas and get groceries, and now it's sunny here at the house. But it's windy, and although the thermometer says it's 48, it doesn't feel like 48. The tops of the trees across the street are dancing to "The Blue Danube."

I haven't felt that good today, and just now turned the computer on. I think I'll have a Coke Zero.

Yes, Noel is truly missed. He would be having a blast right now. Unfortunately, we never did get him to Oxford. A relative of Faulkner's who I know had agreed to spend some time with him. I was fortunate to have been able to spend some time with him in Washington.
