They would not give up until we were able to resolve the situation. There are many things to complain about in the USA, but I have to say they are an example of customer service at its best.

I got my Covid vaccine booster shot yesterday. I had a choice of Moderna or Pfizer. Since my Shots ## 1 and 2 were Moderna, I chose Moderna. Also, the nurse said that the Moderna was a half-dose whereas the Pfizer was a full dose.
I was prepared to feel horrible b/c I felt like horrible after Shot # 2 (day after the shot was worse than the day of the shot). I definitely don't feel 100%, but it's not as bad as Shot # 2.
I have lots of comfort foods on hand and my sheets / blanket are all clean. Also have a huge bottle of Excedrin Migraine, which I took right after the shot and first things this morning as well.

R129, it's the jacket with attached skirt-tails that Auntie Mame wore. Now I have to find the scene. She wears Laura P. Oh, Robbbbbb! pants and a sleeveless shell underneath.
I'd prefer joggers and a tee. I just need a hostess coat of black on gold toile with scenes of accounting. I also want it to be three quarter sleeve with perhaps a super dropped lapel.

I have mouse in the house. I recognize the small, pellet sized droppings.
(I do keep a clean house and kitchen. I'm in the midst of having a bathtub replaced with a walk-in shower and the floor had to be left open overnight. I also recently had a new sub-floor and vinyl flooring installed.
An ambitious mouse (is there any other kind?) accepted the unintended invitation.)

I was going to buy small bottles of Korbel champagne for the staff at my dentist's office. But I can only find the 4 pack at one Bottle King near my job. I didn't feel like stopping on my way home because it's a nightmare to get in and out of there when there ISN'T a holiday. Right now, it's damn near impossible. It gets so bad they have to hire a cop to direct traffic.

🎄trees are already a couple months from being cut down when you buy them. So fresh cut will help tree absorb water in the stand. However, in my experience they only drink for a couple days, a week at most anyhow. Just don't touch the tree once you decorate it and it won't drop too many needles.

Packaging whelms me frequently, R166. I once e-mailed Campbell's about a product that I to this day love with a passion and that is the clear best of its kind on supermarket shelves, regarding the absurd opening mechanism. It resulted, 100% of the time, in 1-3 tablespoonfuls of liquid exploding all over the counter. The response I got was an extremely passive-aggressive and hilariously sarcastic one, emphasizing not only how much research they put into their product designs but also vaguely suggesting that I might be retarded. After hearing many tales of coupons and apologies, I received nothing of the sort. The response was so funny it was better than an apology, though. And clearly from a human being, which I appreciate these days.
Also, the year after I sent that email the opening was redesigned. I know my email wasn't responsible but it really was surprisingly shit and I guess either enough people complained or someone at Campbells actually tried to use their own product and ended up splattering most of it all over their kitchen.

Please stop mentioning sauciers in this thread. I can't decide between adding to my kitchen a saucier or a Windsor pan. The indecision is already whelming me and the mentions above make it so much worse.
I made a terrine to take to the Christmas party mentioned above. During my preparation, I failed to account for the size of my terrine pan and the specifications of the recipe. To make a long story short, my terrine pan was too small for all the filling I had prepared!

You're so right about the way in which travel broadens all our horizons. I discovered that even cereal with the same name is sometimes different in the UK.

My mother just gave her ten year old Suburu to my cousin with (roughly) 8K on it; she used it for six months a year to run local errands.

The UK's Twitter trends don't seem to be updating on my phone or my laptop . I was surprised that Meat Loaf wasn't trending, and then I saw that all the top trends are about last night's TV (this is the general list of UK Twitter trends, not trends that are tailored to me). It's mid-afternoon now and they haven't changed all day, although my timeline shows new tweets.

So far r391 is winning for the most underwhelming post on this thread.

It's currently 36 in my area of NJ. I bought a cute hat, neck scarf (called a snood) and mittens. My winter coat has a zip in-zip out lining. I should be fine. I don't plan to be out there more than 45 minutes.

How are your ties r405 and r399? I am keenly interested while lounging on my couch...underwhelmed.

Not bad, 407, but I have to re-do some because I didn't steam them first.

I bought my grandma her very first smartphone with a nice data plan as she wants to be online. She’s had the phone for about 7 days then called me with a whole shitload of basic internet navigation questions. I told her I would stop by after work and help her out. Well, I was in for quite a shock. While I was holding her phone I thumbed through the browser tabs on her phone and found pics of men sucking cock and a video of a woman with 2 cocks in her asshole. I closed the tabs and then told her that I could no longer help her. Then I went home and cried.

Just got back from PetCo. I bought Cos a new litter box and some litter. They had some really nice cat towers but they were really expensive.
I bought Cos a multi-level cat tower for Xmas. Unfortunately, he like his Mom, have some weight issues. He can't lay comfortably on the shelves because they are so small. I may take that one down, donate it, and buy him something more comfortable. I'm due a merit increase and a couple bonuses this year.

I just spent, in total, an hour, trying to find out where my SmileDirectClub aligners are. I had my impressions done on 12/29 and provided the clearance letter from my general dentist. I just found out that my file still says they are waiting for the clearance. I just cancelled my order. I'll spend more money and go to a dentist in my area for InvisAlign.
Oh, and their commercial is a real song. I heard it about a dozen times and am now homicidal.

i know and I apologize, R425, but I just needed to vent.
I just got off the phone with SDC and they have updated my file. I'm expecting a confirmation call tomorrow about the aligners.

My bread was kind of dry because I didn’t notice the plastic bag had a hole, so my toast was too crisp. I ate it anyway, and a shard stuck into the roof of my mouth, and now it’s been painful for three days!
