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.

I got a somewhat whelming rash near and around the injection site from my booster. Felt and looked like a huge painful mosquito bite which I suppose is close to what it was - a mild histaminic reaction. Still better than dying from COVID.

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.

Anyway, there's a Dunkin' Donuts near the office so I'll give them a gift card after the 1st of the year. They are closed starting Thursday afternoon through the end of the year.

The tree sucks the water up - which is why you made a fresh cut at the base when you installed it.

🎄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!

I'm not sure about ingredient differences, R247. Shreddies are Canadian and are darker brown in colour than Life cereal, which is pale.

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. For example, Special K is very different there to here. I wonder what it's like in the United States? I have yet to try American Special K and might have to set aside an afternoon on a hoped-for upcoming trip to try it.

For some reason, I was reading Michelle Williams's Wiki page (the actress, not Beyonce's former bandmate). She married her first husband around summer 2018, filed for divorce in April 2019, and married her second husband in March 2020. My first thought was that I wouldn't have the energy for that much drama.

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.

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.

Well, I've given up on getting my aligners from Smile Direct Club. I had my final impressions done, pictures taken, and dental release supplied on 12/29.

I was told I should have my aligners in 2-3 weeks. I called at least once a week since mid-January. They continued to tell me they were waiting on the 3 items I mentioned. I told them they already HAVE all of that and have for weeks. I cancelled at the end of January but then received a call from the Dental Team. They asked for 72 hours and they'd call me back. Surprise, surprise, no call back but my account was updated. I finally pulled the plug on Saturday. I will try Candidco or, even though they are more expensive, Invisalign. At least Candidco and Invisalign have local orthodontists I can see if I need to. Doing the impressions and taking the pictures yourself is tricky.

Today is Wednesday and it's time for me to take my 4.2 mile walk but I'm enthralled by the live stream of the deer eating oats and acorns in Brownville Maine.

Get your lazy ass out there!

I'm at work today and it's pretty quiet. I think there are 3 people here; at least in my half of the office. I don't hear any voices on the Sales side which is odd if there are any salespeople over there. My loud team members come in Tue and Thurs. I hate the every other day thing. Wed and Thurs are my days in the office.

I'm going to head out for a short (30-45 minute) walk so that I'm back in time for my 1 PM ET meeting. That will be my 2nd walk in 2 days. Trying to get back into the swing of things.

R556- A 10 minute walk is short. A 45 minute walk is on the LONG side.

I walk for an hour and ten mins 5 days a week.

by Anonymousreply 558February 16, 2022 3:53 PM

Well, I'm back. It was only a 33 minute walk. The office complex isn't that large and I didn't have enough time to lap it twice before my meeting. At least I did something. I spent the winter pretty much on my ass despite buying myself a TotalGym for Christmas in 2019.

I'm making chicken tagine for dinner. Publix does not sell loose regular carrots (only pricey organic), and a cheap bag of regular carrots is way more than I need; so, I bought a bag of baby carrots.

On the plus side, they finally had store brand liquid non-dairy creamer.

R563, was that one of those at-home tests or did you have to go to the pharmacy? My friends have been telling me to get one.

I might have some cake later today, but I'm trying to figure out if I really deserve it. Struggling.

I ran across Mummy at the supermarket. Seeing four jars of Hellman's mayonnaise in my cart (buy one, get one free), she asked if she might have one of them. I'll drop it off on my next visit.

My step-sister brought in a big box of Dunkin Donuts and they were all plain! Who wants a plain glaze donut? Where's the chocolate?

I would prefer a plain glazed doughnut over a chocolate one, R577. But that's just me.

Today is Mardi Gras aka Fat Tuesday. I decided to allow myself to enjoy a Filet-o-Fish, medium fry, and chocolate shake for lunch.

I'm not religious but, for Lent, I'm giving up alcohol during the week; I will allow myself alcoholic drinks on Saturdays and Sundays only. I was going to give up candy but recently bought a large bag of Twizzlers. Unless I throw them out, I'll be tempted to eat some. Anyone else going to give up anything?
