I Want to Be Underwhelmed, Winter 2020-21

Where no topic is too mundane for discussion.

Rather a badge of honor for an "underwhelmed" thread to be paywalled, isn't it? I always thought of these threads as under-the-radar and not likely to draw the popular kids. It's almost whelming.

I'm on the final day 3 of Picato: the sun damage gel. Has to be kept in the fridge like a Covid vaccine and comes in the 3 teeny tiny tubes like a Russian virus. Not much reaction which is a little disappointing. Seems all the solar damage has healed. Had previously done Efudex, which was great, but brutal.

R12 Who's your doctor? The FDA warned about that med five years ago, citing "reports of severe allergic reactions and herpes zoster (shingles) associated with the use of Picato gel (ingenol mebutate.)"

The Canadians say it may increase the risk of skin cancer.

The European Medical Agency has recommended suspending its sale pending further review, citing reports of tumor growth and malignancies roughly ten times more than those in comparator groups.

It seems it can be overwhelming.

I lost 26 lbs, but then Halloween came & I ate leftover full sized candy bars, so I started walking with my husband so I wouldn’t gain weight & he wanted to get back in shape.

I gained a couple pounds but was walking them off.

Every time we walked my husband kept going on & on about having heartburn, he wondered if he had H pylori again, should he take Gas X, etc. Then he’d go into minute detail about what foods he ate, at what time, in what amount. Then he said he couldn’t walk so far anymore & each day he wanted to walk less & less.

It was really unpleasant.

I told him 2 weeks ago to see a damn dr & he did and needs a cardiac catheterization.

My husband had cardiology tests that show he needs interventional cardiology - a cardiac cath & possible angioplasty. He talked to a friend who had angioplasties who recommended his dr. My husband made an appointment to see the dr next week because he wants this done as soon as possible. I just checked & the dr he made an appointment with doesn't do cardiac catheterizations or angioplasties. The dr who was recommended is just a cardiologist who specializes in all the tests that my husband has already had done,

How do people get along in life? I dont get it. How does someone recommend a dr who doesn’t do a procedure to someone who needs a procedure? Is everybody’s head up their ass? How do people spend years in school & learn nothing?

If you're talking about fresh cilantro (as opposed to coriander seed), it works best if you chop it raw and add it as you're serving your pot roast. It's not meant to be cooked, especially not for a long time.

My husband & I were lying in bed watching TV while watching our iPads. We both looked up at the same time & Andy Griffith was on. It caught our attention because an actress was using a very annoying voice while playing an annoying character and she said, “I can’t go out in the sun because I get the herpes!”

I never heard someone say “the herpes” instead of “cold sore.”

I'm sitting here in northern NJ, waiting for the snow to start. I'm going to out out for a walk; just to get some fresh air before the madness starts.

by Anonymousreply 29812/16/2020

I’m debating whether I should move my car to the front of my driveway so I only have to dig it out and clear between it and the street, or put it in the garage so I won’t have to dig it out, but I’ll have to clear the whole driveway.

I miss last winter. Didn’t touch the shovel.

by Anonymousreply 29912/16/2020

R299, I don't think it will matter much no matter what you do. If you leave your car out, you'll need to clear IT, and the fallen snow, in your driveway. If your car is in the garage, you'll probably be shoveling the same amount of snow.

If your car is at the end of the driveway, won't the snow plows plow it under/almost under?

I sometimes like to "play summer" when it's winter, r308. I sometimes will go out and buy exactly what I ate during for eg, Wimbledon watching marathons on TV during July and eat that because it transports me back to a really hot summer day.

I have heard the words to “Most Wonderful Time if the Year,” and thought the lyrics about telling scary ghost stories was referring to A Christmas Carol. I just found out that it is an English tradition to tell ghost stories at Christmas and it was particularly popular during Victorian times. A Christmas Carol was just one of the ghost stories written at the time. It became popular in the US because Dickens wrote for magazines that became available in America,

The tradition was revived by the BBC in the 1970s. I just listened to a radio version of one. It was also a TV play but I couldn’t find a video of the play. It is a Marxist Christmas ghost story! Trump would *hate* it. It didn’t air on Christmas - it aired in November but it takes place at Christmas.

So here is a creepy Marxist Christmas ghost story filled with that 1970s British verbosity that came before UK was Americanized

It's not so easy cleaning the bottom of the cup because generally there's some smears of 'debris'. Debris is not a nice word but it's inevitable as not all the fruit can be liquified.

These new generation of blenders retain the vitamins and the 'roughage' and are therefore much easier to clean.

by Anonymousreply 42512/24/2020

Reminded by the above comments, I inherited five small old somewhat historic houses, all filled with the possessions of the last four generations of my family. My mother, grandparents, great-grandparents, and even g-g-grandparents. I had quit working to take care of my mom before she died, so I've spent the past five years curating everything and beating the overgrowth into something manageable.

I've given away massive amounts of cool things to local thrift stores and have, according to my friend who told me about some guy who was donating so much, people are swarming that thrift store. I knew from what he said people were buying that it was my stuff, but I didn't tell him, because I knew he would want to come to my house and look at stuff and try to buy it before I took it to the thrift.

When I find something I really like, I live with it a while until I feel like I've enjoyed it enough, and then it gets donated. Sometimes I run out of steam after a few months, so I take a few months off and then go at it again.

Since I don't want these things and no one in my family wants them, I like the idea that things are being bought up by people who will scatter them throughout the area and some will go to dealers who will find special buyers for them. After so many years of being stored in houses that no one lived in, I want them to go to people who will enjoy them.

I watched "Super 8" last night, the JJ Abrams movie about kids making a zombie flick who inadvertently expose a government cover-up of an alien crash landing.

Does it violate the rules of underwhelm-ment to ask someone a question? If so, please ignore this.

R452, if you have deer you must have other wildlife, as well. What have you seen? I have deer, raccoons, foxes, groundhogs, 'possums, and armadillos, occasionally skunks that never bother anyone, and tons of birds, including owls and hawks.

One of my dogs is a mighty killer of snakes, rabbits, frogs, skinks, and any other living thing she can get her jaws on, and the other is a little terrier mix who is pretty brave, but doesn't want actually to tangle with any of them. My cat kills small creatures, too, but I don't let her out much, because of the predators.

My cat brought in a mouse that was still alive. I rescued the poor critter - it was still alive. I placed it in a box with some water, but it was clearly suffering some type of shock, perhaps brought on by internal bleeding. I watched him for a few hours but he wasn't moving. I thought about bringing him to a vet but thought he was too far gone. So I euthanized him/her by placing him under the front wheel of my Wrangler and drove over him.

5 tablespoons flour, 1 cup whole milk combined and whisked over medium flame until thick like a pudding.

Whisk in 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and pinch of salt. Poured into a bowl to completely cool.

Put saran wrap right onto the pudding to prevent a skin from forming, set aside until completely cooled.

Using a mixer, cream together until fluffy one cup ( 2 sticks) unsalted butter and one cup granulated sugar.

Make sure to use unsalted butter. One time, I had only salted butter and made the frosting anyway. I regretted it. It tasted too harsh. Unsalted butter gives the frosting a subtle, mellow, smooth flavor.

By mixer, add the pudding into the creamed butter and sugar by medium- small chunks. Make sure the chunks are completely mixed into the frosting before adding another small chunk.

once the pudding is all in, mix the frosting until light and fluffy.

To. Die. For.

I frosted a Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge box cake with that frosting and it tasted like the richest, most debaucherous, most sinful Hostess Suzy Q evah.

In 1960, MGM toyed with the idea of doing an all-male remake of The Women which would have been entitled, Gentlemen's Club. Like the female version, this would have involved an all masculine cast and the plot would have involved a man (Jeffrey Hunter) who recently discovers among his friends that his wife is having an affair with another man (Earl Holliman) and after going to Reno to file for divorce and begin a new life, he later finds himself doing what he can to rectify matters later on when he discovers that the other man is only interested in money and position and he decides to win his true love back again. Although nothing ever came of this, it would have consisted of the following ensemble: Jeffrey Hunter (Martin Heal), Earl Holliman (Christopher Allen), Tab Hunter (Simon Fowler), Lew Ayres (Count Vancott), Robert Wagner (Mitchell Aarons), James Garner (Peter Day), Jerry Mathers (Little Martin), James Stewart (Mr. Heal), Ronald Reagan (Larry), Troy Donahue (Norman Blake), and Stuart Whitman (Oliver, the bartender who spills the beans about the illicit affair).... wikipedia

I am old and trust me certain stores are staffed by 18 to 25-year-olds who look right through me and ignore me for the rest of my visit. I have an "old man " get up I wear Athletic shoes with velcro straps , some polyester tan cargo pants, a light blue short sleeve dress shirt and a Knights of Columbus baseball hat. For accessories, I wear a cheap digital watch and wrap around sunglasses. I top it off with a flip phone I keep with as a prop.

I target stores that are staffed by young people, if the staff is gay or " persons of color" even better, they will definitely ignore me. I never try this at a store run by Asians no matter what the age of the staff, they are very diligent.. I only target national chain retailers not small local businesses.

I have netted more than 5800.00 in proceeds in terms of merchandise in 2020. I donate much of it and give a lot away as gifts . It's my way of saying a big "FU" to the annoying millennials .

I am so whelmed. I hate 2020. I was down to 2 guinea fowl. One got accidentally kicked by a deer a few days ago & disappeared after that. The other bird has been looking for him. Today the bird was calling very loudly, I thought her must be very lonely. I laid down to take a nap & I heard screaming. I went outside and a hawk came out of my arborvitae, walking on the ground. I saw a flash and the guinea fowl was running. There were feathers everywhere. He ran down an alley between houses & I lost sight of him. The hawk was in hot pursuit. It’s a BIG hawk, not the usual sharpie or Cooper’s hawk. The guinea never came back. I realize that’s what he was calling about today - he was being stalked by the Hawk and was trying to scare it away. Guinea fowl always travel together because it’s safe. If a hawk tried to attack the other bird will attack the hawk. I didnt realize the last guinea was in such incredible danger.

Now I have no guinea fowl. I had them for 8 years. I’m heartbroken.

I had way too much alcohol last night after watching the news for more than 5 hours straight. I did get a good night's sleep, though. I will reduce my alcohol consumption the rest of this month. And possibly beyond

I just had a bowl of oatmeal with blueberries, walnuts and cinnamon. Delicious and should hold me until dinner.

R531 I did the same last night. I'm not sure if I fell asleep or passed out but it was a most upsetting day. Hopefully, today will be better.

I certainly wanted a drink after yesterday's events. And I rarely drink.

Thanks to those making such fine underwhelming posts. It may be helping. I’m not sure.

As for me, the litter box cries out for attention. Silently.

I had a sleepless night last night. Exhausted from all the political goings on. And I'm not even a U.S. Citizen nor living in the U.S. Ugh. Nursing last of the Xmas Rum and Egg Nog and early to bed for at least 12 hours of Zzzzz.

Ok. I’ve cleaned the litter box (replaced all the litter), vacuumed the stray litter and the stairs, AND watered all the plants. I’m exhausted.

I would definitely require a lie-down after all that activity, R541.

Same here, r552. I never buy any computers without some Geek Squad contract. The issue was the Acer package came without critical attachments, namely a charger.

R532, no. I don't think I'm an alcoholic (yes, everyone says that). But I had 2 vodkas with olives (maybe 4 oz of vodka in total) and almost a whole bottle of wine with dinner while watching the news on Wednesday. That's not something I normally do.

Anyway, I've been successful in reducing my alcohol intake thus far. Right now, I'm enjoying a blood orange. I love them!

Kept tv on in my bedroom all night last night because I ran out if sleeping pills last week & only sleep for about 2 hours a night. So I may as well hear news when I wake up. Watched tv till 2:45, woke at 5 am.

Got a bottle of wine as a gift for Christmas opened it Wednesday night, ate like a pig. Thought it would be just one night of eating nerves, but still eating too much today & maybe will finish wine tonight. Wish I could still smoke.

Someone featured a london rowhouse toilet and the designer sang praises of Poo spray. I don’t want you to be overwhelmed, but it works when your bathroom has no window and your poop has no view. Avoid the lavender - like a gang of bridge club ladies took a dump in your apartment.

R522, yes I would recommend the TotalGym from Walmart. It came with arm and leg attachments, access to the TotalGym website for workout videos, and a flipchart to show the exercises. It doesn't take up much space and folds up. I just have to keep Cosmo from using the slide pad as a scratching post.

Be aware that it weighs over 50 lbs. Depending on your age, you may need help getting it in the house. I felt a difference in a short amount of time working out on it. I provided a link to the one I bought. I hope it works. If not, just Google "TotalGym Walmart."

Really, R573? I just went to the Walmart website and it didn't say it was out of stock.

Try QVC or HSN. They may have it. Last resort is the TotalGym website itself. At the very least, you can set up payments with them.

R577 Thanks, Cosmo. I'll try them both. The Walmart message was what I received when I used your link!

R574, the original link was a gazillion characters and wouldn't post so I shortened up. I hope you are able to purchase one. It really is an amazing piece of equipment. I actually look forward to using it. It shipped quickly and actually arrived before the anticipated date. I ordered it around the Christmas holidays.

My neighbours have filled our shared recycling bins with non-recyclable garbage. I’m becoming increasingly whelmed by those stupid ignorant assholes.

by Anonymousreply 58101/12/2021

R581, my sister has the same problem at her apartment complex. Parents send their kids to dump the garbage. They are too short/lazy to put it in the large dumpster so they put in the recycling bins. Then there's no room for the recyclables! It's very whelming.

by Anonymousreply 58201/12/2021

My hope is that waste companies are segregating recyclables in a different part of the waste dump. My state can’t export recyclables because they are contaminated.
