Re: Home $weet Home

My internal home water pressure is meh but acceptable. My external spigots basically just drool. I don’t get it. Is this a recognizable change? Like "the water from the shower used to hit this part of the wall, now it hits this other part"? Or is it just "it's always kinda been like this, but I don...

It's a problem with the way phpBB parses it. It sees an amazon link and tries to load an embed like it does with youtube or twitter, but that doesn't actually work for anyone who hasn't already visited the link. If you get the link, and then come back and look at the page, then the embed shows. And ...

Has Temp Cat shown up yet, Ellie?

Re: Familiar spirits

When the vet describes the abscess as "Mount Vesuvius" it's probably good that he had surgery. Now he's got a giant open hole on his butt, but we don't have to do anything with it. But he's definitely feeling a ton better now than he was, you can just see it in the way he's walking around and engage...

I also noticed that there's a dark blue color that's not in the legend. But that's cause I'm used to reviewing maps, and assuming that the people who made them aren't gigantic fucking idiots.

This bad even for Trump. It would be one thing to be bland and non-committal but openly supportive of Putin is just bizarre.

Yeah, I thought he might have had a UTI, but this was a much worse and at the same time better thing. Definitely more painful and problematic, but likely less long-term problem now that it's caught and taken care of.

Took the cat to the vet, they decided immediately that he needed surgery for an infected anal gland. Turns out to be one of the biggest infections the vet has seen, but he should be just fine.

Re: Familiar spirits

One of our cats isn't feeling well today, but we don't know what it is. Just being listless. But that makes my wife super mopey and worried about him. So I'm calling the vet in the morning to see about taking him in.

Re: How's the weather? v. 1.1

I'm actually surprised at how nice it's been the past couple days. It was supposed to be hotter, but it's never really gotten above 85, and the humidity has stayed fairly low, with a good breeze.

Doesn't mean I'm gonna hang out outside a lot, tho :)

Re: Orange is the new President

I am more on thoreau's side with this. It's stinky. And I think it's perfectly in keeping with the man's personality that Trump would not just spill the beans, but brag about it if he could. The man has a horrible grasp on what the entire rest of the people in the world think a "good idea" is.

To clarify I meant the time frame is for both. That's because I have self control issues and have never eaten less than a half dozen fresh KK in a sitting. Better men may consume more frequently.

My wife is pretty similar, but doesn't even like to have anyone visit the house. She just doesn't care to spend the effort to be around other people in person, but kind of laments that she's bad at it.
