  • My cat just stepped on the incision from yesterday's surgery, waking me up from a deep sleep. *WHINE* I know she's just trying to be friendly, but...

      Yeah, those little cat feet can hurt even when they're not stepping on incisions.

          If he's like mine, honesty is all you need:

          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!"

          • GOTD: I have a friend who is seemingly very healthy, rides her bike A LOT, jogs, just looks great and she’s over 50. At the last bike race, she wasn’t participating. I noticed she was wearing some kind of cardio monitoring things. I asked about it, turns out she was having scary spikes in heart rate a few months ago. I couldn’t believe it, but then I remembered that she has a vicious sweet tooth and pretty much exercises her ass off so she can eat pastry, candy, chocolate, etc. I suggested that she DROP SUGAR immediately. She said yeah that’s a good idea and her cardiologist even had a copy of the Paleo Diet in the office, but she just loved bread and pasta and pastry and sugar too much to give it up.

            I couldn’t really get on a soapbox too much b/c I was drinking a post-race beer (carb refeed?) at the time.

            But I just couldn’t understand how she wouldn’t even give it a chance. And she’s 100% aware of how much giving up grains (non fermented kind) has helped me. Pasta and bread and sugar tastes so good she’s willing to die for it?

            I just read Sugar Blues (kinda dated and a little hokey, but still interesting, in a SALT or COD or THE PRIZE type of way, if you’re aware of those books), so I’m virulently anti-sugar right now.

            • GotD: I realize you are all doped up and wanting attention, O kitty of mine, but do you really have to walk across my keyboard and change settings that I have NO IDEA how to fix? Really? You could at least have the courtesy to tell me how you managed to do that....

              20 minutes later, and I *think* I've got everything back to normal... but who knows?

                THE FOG comes
                on little cat feet.

                It sits looking
                over harbor and city
                on silent haunches
                and then moves on.

                  We used to have a 15 lb cat, who would lay on the keyboard when my husband was on his computer. My husband was his person and I was only paid attention to when there was no one else home.

                  • GotD: Get trained on something and then found out you weren't taught the right way to do it 2 weeks into the damn project. Now I have to do this differently but its a lot less of a headache on my part. Just hate unlearning shit.

                        As someone who has had way too many incisions in that same place (one of which didn't heal right and needed to be redone twice), I winced when I read this. Healing vibes going your way.

                          Now, I'm utterly confused. Is it the danger aspect, the geeking out, or something else?

                          • oh jenny, OW!

                            my dear dear little tiny boy (who is not yet 1 year) pushed a small chair up to a larger chair and climbed both to climb on top of the kitchen table. when i came to check on him in the kitchen, i found him sitting on the table ripping the skin off of an avocado. there are several gripes here:
                            avocados are expensive right now (that one was on sale for 1.50)
                            he smeared avocado all over the table
                            NOTHING IS SAFE ANYMORE!!
                            my older son deleted the picture i snapped of the event

                            oh, and another gripe (i'm making up for lost time):
                            "FML" as in "i just dropped my cell phone in a mud puddle, FML" or "i found a really cute shirt on sale but it was the wrong size, FML"
                            AARRRGGGHHHH! get a sense of perspective!!!!

                              It's some combination of the badass swearing like a trucker, geeking out, and facing danger un-phased. I'm straight so I'm confused too.

                                my 13mth old hasn't climbed up on the table yet, but the bookshelves - now instead of just clearing off the bottom shelf and moving on, he climbs up and works on the next couple of shelves.... I'm waiting to see what else he starts climbing...though I am thankful he's a *late* climber...dd was climbing up stuff at 8mths...
