  • GOTD:

    My very, very CW DW had told me about some stuff that she had heard about called Skinny Fiber that she wants to try. She sent me a link to the site, all natural, blah, blah. "Amazing weight loss!", etc., etc. She asked me about it today, I have told her, many times, about PB/Paleo, given her the book to read (which she didn't), all that stuff.

    It is what it is.

    Today she asked me about it again and I told her to try it if she wished, that at least it appeared to be all natural. She said, "yea but it has all those weird sounding herbal things in it", said the woman who is taking multiple medications a day.

    Sigh.....

    • ...methinks I'm grumpy today:

      Watching the hordes of tourists last night, knock over my plants, trip and land on their faces, bring their dogs to the center of the fireworks universe (so that when the poor pups bolt out of fear, I and my neighbors get the pleasure of finding them the next day), and then shooting illegal fireworks that caught a local boating business on fire. All before 10pm. Yea. I love the drinking masses.

      My neighbor and I have taken to standing on the street curb, loudly talking w/ lots of florid language to scare away the visitors. It worked on the 2 young women who'd taken up camp on the grass, snacking on their rice crispy treats in tupperware.

        • My peanut-allergic sister-in-law, who keeps a nut-free household, was shocked to find that I keep a gluten-free household. In what way is it not exactly the same thing?

          • There is a good reason most roads have medians. I shouldn't I have to to veer off road, because some a-hole wants to come out of nowhere driving in the center of it.

              • Stupid mower battery. I got through the jungle of the backyard, no problem. I get half way through mowing the front yard (really didn't need it, but it would in a few days) and THAT'S when it decided to die. It doesn't realize that I will win and the yard WILL be mowed completely by 2 hours from now.
                Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                  This always happens to me as we have a couple of acres and the batteries always need recharging. I just figure that I was bored of pushing the thing around and wanted a break anyway

                  • GOTD: Morning Glories. I wish someone official would declare this a "flower" and not a "weed". It grows too damn fast to be a flower, though.

                    GOTD #2: Wasps. One stung me on the back of the hand THROUGH my canvas gardening glove. I wasn't near a nest, and it didn't even give me any warning.

                      I plugged it in, waited an hour while I cooled down (whose damn fool idea was it to maintain a lawn in a place where 95* is a cool front?), and then finished up what I had left in 10 minutes.

                          I thought a flower was anything pretty you wanted, and a weed was anything you didn't want?

                          So it's entirely subjective.

                          • Morning glories are weeds, but I love them. They completely take over my parents' yard in September.

                              Unfortunately, the morning glories try to take over the flowerbed in my front yard. If I let them, they'd choke out all the pretty blue, pink, and yellow flowers that I really want to be there! I was out of town the first half of June, and when I got back they'd nearly covered a flowering bush I planted last year.

                              While the flowers on the morning glory vines are pretty enough, I'd like more variety in my flowerbed!

                              • Honestly, if it covers the ground and doesn't have burrs, thorns or stickers, it's pretty enough to stay in my yard.
