I have a headache that's probably worse than my ibuprofen can handle. I want to go next door and get a latte for the added pain relief but a thunderstorm just started.

My dog has learnt to jump onto my desk when I am out so she ate my cheese puffs. So now I have a) a fat dog and b) no cheese puffs.

The worst thing is that I was going to overeat on the cheese puffs and then be able to complain here about feeling sick and bloated.

My Samsung Galaxy Note 7 isn't working because the battery won't charge, so I have to surf the net while watching television using my Samsung Galaxy 5 Sport staring at it like an octogenarian squid merchant in Shanghai does with his abacus.

I tire of putting spammy threads in the Philosophy forum on Ignore. Perhaps this process could be automated.

You can automatically ignore threads created by people on your ignore list, or you can ignore the Philosophy forum entirely, but there's no way to block threads by a specific user.

Why the fuck not?! :glare:

This is my post 28,333, that makes for a long numeral. Just wait till 28,888! :stimpy:

My kid goes to public school. But not one of those crappy ones you hear about in the news, so she has to study constantly to keep up with classes that I didn't take until college.

I'm lucky that I've been using my brain at work for the last 20 years or I'd be screwed helping her with geometry, algebra, and her upcoming calculus and statistics and probability classes. I even learnt myself English better after my crappy schoolin so I can sort of help with that junk too.

I'm not sure I could handle being 15 in this day and age. I probably wouldn't be able to take the classes she's taking. She'll get college credit for them through the local univerisity. I'm being all tiger dad on her to take them because I won't have to pay for basic college classes, but damn, every once and a while it would be nice if they just passed her on without making her/me do all that homework.

Gah.

I have 2 little white mutt pound puppy doges. Both saved from doom because I must be a sucker for hard luck cases on death row. (I'm banned from visiting the humane society by the way).

One is a general pain in the ass but no worst than the other kids in the house. Pain one moment, all sweet and cuddley the next (because they want something). The other doge is nicer, and calmer, but has one glaring fault; a fear of thunder.

As most anyone watching the weather knows, it's been raining here a lot this year. According to Al Roker this morning, we're expected to get 5 or 6 inches this week in a 4 day rainathon. Several inches came last night. It always seems to rain here at night sometime between the hours of 11 pm and 4 am. Last night was an exception, and it rained all the time from 12:15 am until 4:30 am. So I had a doge on my head, pacing the bed, barking at the thunder, and generally being a "you can't sleep, somethings going on" pain. So many rain, much thunder, sedatives not work, squirrel.

I feel like I got hit by a truck today since I have to get up after 1-1/2 hours of maybe sleep. Doge tired, sleep all day. Storms start again tonight at 10pm. WOW

:thunder:

The correct answer is anything but mint chocolate chip.

Okay, maybe I exaggerated a little. My massage therapists frowns on my use of my smartphone to surf for massage porn while I get my massage.

My Mom had surgery a few weeks ago, and we've been bringing food and such to her a lot, so she took us out to dinner. But the place they wanted to go was closed for Labor Day (what the hell kind of restaurant closes for Labor Day?), so we went to Casa Mediocra instead. I'd been there before and thus knew to avoid their most mediocre dishes. I got a Chile Verde burrito that was actually pretty good, but most of the rest of them got stuff they didn't care much for.

The things we have to put up with! Choking down mediocre Mexican food that my Mom paid for. :whygod:

We took our kids to a Mexican resturant based on the glowing reviews given by our neighbors. Kids like tacos so they had tacos. We ate different things like ancholadas and fancy fajitas.

Then we spent the most of the night holding our food posioned kid's heads out of the toilet.

To bad Yelp wasn't around at the time. "The food was great. It tasted good going down or up. Great for your bulimic diet."

I used to enjoy a carne adovada burrito at Francisco's restaurant in downtown Durango every single time we made The Grand Circle tour (lunch in Telluride, a dip in the hot springs pool at Ouray, a stop in Silverton, and dinner in Durango). It tasted so damned good, and was so spicy is made my eyes water, my nose run, and burned my lips and tongue. Invariably, I would barely get home in time to make it to the toilet and feel the burn again, coming out. We lived 80 miles from Durango. Sometimes that last 25-30 miles would be made with a clenched butt. Last time I was in Durango, during my Eat Everything Chile Verde Style tour, Francisco's was still there, but I did not eat there. Because my favorite dish there was smothered in a spicy red sauce, not chile verde.

My bottom of my left shoe is split open. It's not like I walk a lot in my dress shoes. In fact, considering the amount of chair time I spend per day, the butt of my pants should have worn out first. Maybe I should to check in the mirror to make sure, since it's not assless pants day at work.

Now I have to get out the epoxy and po people fix my shoes because I just got the leather part around my feet broken in to a comfy fit. Taking these shoes to get repaired would cost more than my shoes are worth since the guy working on them isn't a 10 year old locked in a Phillipino sweatshop.

Our sewer pump grinder borked and we had to find 2.5k to get a new one. The house is less than a decade old, and I have never heard of anyone having to replace major sewer parts like this! I have been assured that they require replacing every 8-10 years, but it must be one of those things that only I have to replace all the time because I asked around and nobody even knew WTF I was talking about.

I googled it because I first thought, damn what if my sewer pump grinder gives out too, then I thought, wait what if it's like a plumber's version of an automechanic's blinker fluid.

But it's real. And I don't have one because my poo runs down hill. Grinder Pumps

The key questions to pump longevity are; are you significantly below the city sewer lines?, does yours have a check valve to keep the line from draining back into the tank?, and does the family get enough fiber?.
