      People don't realise how much effort goes into pissing people off. I've walked 30 miles through a snow storm with a seeping chest wound on an empty stomach and then spent the night under an awning just to make my mother worry.

      Oh and my GOTD: I fried potatoes in what I thought was coconut oil (I was craving chips...) only to find out it was partially hydrogenated vegetable oil. Waiting for the stomach ache as we speak.
      In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

      • The fall is a time to reflect back on things.

        So I look way back to my first thread. It's in the forum archives. That area is read-only and cannot be modified. So my gripe is this:

        Why does that old thread look like it was attacked? Cut up by a crazed machete wielding... okay I can't think of what to call it but it's pretty chopped up.

        • And just consider the population explosion since he lived some 2200 years ago? I think we could safely amend Lao Tsu to say: Any given day you are surrounded by at least 100,000 idiots.

          Same gripe as mine.

          • GOTD: I'm having a really, really bad day and it's making me sad and cranky.

            • I should have gotten a little, stupid dog. I got home (after about 45 minutes out) to a horrendous mess in the living room. Thankfully we have tile, because Harvey chewed holes in a plastic bottle of wood glue then dragged a box of nails through the mess, not to mention shredding a couple boxes into the fray. I KNOW I closed the front hall closet doors, which is where it all was. This morning I heard this thump-thump-thump and sure enough, he's figured out how to open the doors, double type with a ball catch at the top which is somewhat loose, by hitting it with his paw. Little wanker.

                would something like this help.

                • I'm thinking a doggy straight jacket. heh. Seriously though, the ball catches just need to be tightened which is just a matter of climbing up on a chair and adjusting them. I'll let my boyfriend do it this evening since he's taller. We have had to somewhat child proof the house though, as he's a bit of a menace. Blue heeler. They're incorrigible.

                    Back on my GotD from the other day:
                    I made the mistake of telling a very negative, passive-aggressive person about THE BIG GOAL I'm making actual concrete progress towards. Her little negative dig over Thanksgiving is still sitting in my craw, I must admit. But I have decided that I am going to succeed .... if nothing else, just to spite her. And I'm thinking long and hard about even continuing the friendship. It wasn't just what happened the other day; it's more than that. I don't need and don't want people like that in my life that leave a yucky feeling in the pit of my stomach.

                    I'm sorry- has she met you? Is there anything you CAN'T do if you choose to? Psh- she has no idea what she's talking about.

                    Ok, I admit it, I'm one of those people that was afraid to drive in the city. In my defense, it was not the driving- it was the possibility of getting lost/stuck in a nasty part of Baltimore. *shudders* Once I figured out that if I drove enough I'd see signs for 83 or 95 (both of which I know well) then it wasn't so bad. As long as I had enough gas in the tank.

                      Ok. first some commiseration. I remember walking in one day when my pup was going through the transition of being crated when I was gone to being allowed out. This was one of the 'fail' days. She had gotten up on the table and eaten; a book, my roommates reading glasses and case, a very large pinecone, a cd, a bottle of sparkly black fabric paint (luckily she didn't actually consume it but she did spill it on the carpet), tore 6 inches off the bottom of one curtain and broke the curtain rod and dragged it to the floor.

                      Stop reading now if you don't want suggestions! Some people seem to like suggestions and for other people it just pisses them off! What follows is suggestions. You have been warned!


                      More walks! Yeah, I know. It's more or less impossible to wear out a blue heeler but more walks is always a good start! Also swimming and/or a doggie treadmill if you just need to wear him out but not you!

                      A crate can be a good thing too.

                      Toys that you fill with food can keep him busy for a while too.

                      • All the people on these forums who think we need government to make laws to "protect" us from big food companies when in fact all they are doing is protecting the big food companies from competition.

                        When will you people wake up?!

Srsly, what would somebody who had cancer, a brain injury, or was older and a bit demented, or just plain not too smart to begin with and paperwork averse do? I've just spent FOUR hours this morning filling out claim forms... which my insurance company will go out of their way to find the smallest reason to deny. JUST REIMBURSE ME ALREADY! I'm exhausted, and my brain is like a marshmallow right now. Who can I marry in Canada and be rid of this joke of a U.S. for-profit insurance system?
                              Yes, it has nothing at all to do with the fact that government is totally involved in the sickcare industry and is doing everything it can to make sure big insurance companies do not have any new competition.

                              First, it is the only product in the country which you can purchase with tax free money!
                              Second, the government makes sure that you cannot buy insurance from a company in another state (that would be competition and we like monopolies around here because monopolies can screw you really hard especially when they use the force of government to prevent competition).
                              Third, the government now wants to force you to purchase sickcare insurance by law making it the first and only product by a private industry which Americans must purchase.

                              Yes, by no means is this the government's fault. Clearly this is just corporations.

                              All we need to do is find a space alien to run our government for us so it wont be so corrupt and work for the corporations.

                              I mean we can't get rid of government power, because we are too lustful for power ourselves to want to do that. I mean maybe one day I might be president, just think of what I could do with all that power. The insurance companies would be paying me tons of money to make laws in their favor.

                              Clearly socialism works. We just need a space alien to run it for us.

                                No, I can't make our Web site any easier to navigate. To get it to your level we'd be stuck with primary colors and no words of more than five letters.

                                When you get an e-mail about a change CHECK YOUR CONFIRMATIONS. It's not that hard. And the answer will be there. Because we know you didn't read any of the mailings telling you it was coming. We're clever like that.

                                No, we can't change the rules because you don't like them. You're not that special. You're just . . . special.
