  • It amazing how many people in my office with Master's degrees use "alot" and I know better and all I have is a high school diploma and a clerical certificate. However, I had great English teachers, especially in junior high and high school AND I liked English.

      Nope, noone even saw me go down. Which is possibly a good thing. I was fine. I did go and tell them what happened so they could clean up the spill and stop someone else from taking a spill. I hurt for a couple of hours but then it passed. It was less harsh than a couple of months ago when the pupper tried to bolt (on leash) when she saw another dog and I went down in the gravel and got road rash on my knee and forearm!

        LOL. Hubs and I comment quite often that god forbid something happens to one of us and they bring in that fancy spray stuff and the black light. :-O

        Oy, and that seems to be even more people lately. Whatever happened to ASKING about something if you're confused or if you think something was done incorrectly? My old boss-from-hell used to literally stride into my office yelling about something before finding out what the real story was. And he never apologized. Once he found out he was wrong he'd just stop talking. And he never learned from it either.... douchebag.

        • after a decade of coffee drinking, you'd think I'd learn that it's food first, then coffee. Seriously. Every damn time I do this I end up in pain. Apparently I don't learn well with pain. :/

          • You would be perfect for crossfit then

            • I'm trying my hardest to get into good enough shape to start doing crossfit. I'm doing modified crossfit stuff now, but without any weights because I think that's something that needs to be done with a professional there helping you with your form. I think if I can get myself to the point where I can complete an Angie, I'll be fit enough to join a crossfit gym. I'm nowhere near that goal yet. But I'll get there.

              • I'm often mistaken for a vegetarian. It just happened again today! This has been going on for about 10 yrs now. This really irritates me to no end. I can't figure out what it is that makes people think I'm a vegetarian. I guess they don't see the meat in my BAS.

                Obviously they think it's a compliment: "oh you look healthy & trim so i just assumed you were a vegetarian". It irks me so much! Esp b/c i honestly believe that a vegetarian diet is probably one of the unhealthiest & unnatural ever.

                • Hi, I am new to fasting and want to try it out but I don't want any discomfort or strange feelings. Is it okay if eat a spoonful of peanut butter every half hour throughout the day?

                  • Yes, the peanut butter is a good plan provided it is vegan peanut butter and the spoon is metric.

                    • Well actually I lied, it's not exactly peanut butter, it's peanut butter flavoured frosting but that shouldn't matter right (OMG LOL!!)

                        • Hi I'm Windows and I'm going to randomly turn your computer off cause that's what I do....

                          Hope you weren't doing anything important.

                          Also, I'm going to install updates after I restart your computer, so you won't be able to use it for fourty minutes.

                          Thanks for buying Windows!

                            That's not windows. That's A) how it's set up and B ) a hardware issue. Unless you have some seriously FUBAR shit going on (Blue Screening, brick walls, etc), unprompted shutdowns are hardware. Check your fans. As to auto-update, you can turn that off, y'know.

                            • It's actually my hubby's computer, (but it's the only one we have right now) and he gets twitchy if I mess with his settings, and I've asked him so many times to turn off the auto update feature, but he hasn't. And it always seems to pop up the "we're going to restart your computer" box right when I've gone to the bathroom or something, and I come back to the computer restarting and spend tons of time installing updates.

                              gggrrr.

                              • Ahhh....
                                I'm sorry. :C

                                My gripe:
                                It's pronounced "NOO-cleer" or "noo-CLEE-ar", not "nukuler." It's pronounced "KRAHN- ik," not "crank" (WTF, there's not even an a in the word...) It's pronounced "PATH-o-jin," not "path-er- GIN."
                                If you teach the class, be able to pronounce the words. It's that simple. Being raised in Odessa isn't an excuse, either, because you've seen the videos you show us WHERE THEY SAY IT RIGHT only 5 million times. SAY. IT. RIGHT.
                                Especially "nuclear." People mispronouncing that word just sets my teeth on edge.
