I watched an old episode of Inspector Lewis tonight. The killer was a trans woman (not of color) who went to Brazil to get a sex change operation so that she could be with her ex-boyfriend who was too religious to accept being gay. It didn’t work out, the ex-boyfriend committed suicide, and she went after the religious people who had tried to convert him to heterosexuality and killed them with 🔥.
Turns out the ex-boyfriend was a childhood friend of Sgt. Hathaway who had kissed Sgt. Hathaway as a young teen. Hathaway laughed in his face. Later, when Hathaway was in the seminary he was one of the religious people who told the ex-boyfriend to go straight. The killer tried and failed to burn Hathaway alive.
It would be so canceled today.

“ As the saying goes, laughter is the best medicine! And what better way to bring a smile to the faces of elderly homosexuals than with a good laugh? From classic gay-themed movies and TV shows, to the latest drag queen lip-sync battles, there's always something to tickle the funny bone of those in the LGBTQ+ community. Not to mention the endless stream of witty quips and sassy comebacks that are part and parcel of gay culture. So why not spend an afternoon indulging in some lighthearted fun, whether it's watching a RuPaul's Drag Race marathon, sharing a few laughs over a game of cards with friends, or simply having a good old-fashioned giggles session with your partner? With all the challenges life can bring, it's important to take a moment to enjoy some good, clean fun and let the laughter roll!”

I don't understand this need to cut the wicks of the candles. The problem with those huge, fat candles seems to be not enough wicks. The middle of the candle (where the wick is) becomes concave. The perimeter of the candle is too high. Too much wax rolling down from the perimeter into the wick area, snuffing out the candle.

R148, the salad offered was Caesar with croutons. Even with the shaved parmesan cheese, there's not enough protein; nothing to make you feel full. The dressing, the best part of the salad, IMO, is full of fat. The sandwiches were chicken parm, and Italian sub. I went with the Italian sub. Though the meat was processed, there was fresh mozzarella. The piece was small so there wasn't much bread. I had bottled water with it.

I’ve fully converted from pipe and tobacco to vape.

I’m not worried about running low on fluid or loose tobacco that’s not too oily and not too dry. And my clothes don’t have little shit stains everywhere from the pipe spitting up tobacco juice at weird times.
Now, I have an electric pacifier that’s hooked up via usb-c cable. I feel like a spoiled 13 year-old with a juice box. I don’t think I’ll vape in public. I’m not even sure about social rules for vaping.

Also, make a new rule for yourself -- anything you eat, including snacks, has to be eaten at the table. Even if it's a handful of peanuts or a cube of cheese, sit down and eat it. You're more likely to be mindful of how much and what you are actually eating if you don't eat on the go, in the car, in front of the TV, etc.

Came down with a powerful sore throat at the end of a beautiful warm afternoon yesterday. Gobbled zinc lozenges all thru the night and felt like I was getting pretty sick. I haven't had so much as a cold in almost 5 years now. Took a Covid test this a.m. and it's negative, and I just feel like I have a cold. Pretty sure I picked it up at a funeral reception on Saturday, a huge crowd, almost all of whom I did not know at all. It was a mistake to have gone, since I didn't give a damn about the "honoree" anyway, had to drive 1.5 hours to get there (and back), and this is the thanks I get.

I had three teeth extracted and then bone grafting to fill the sockets done on Monday preparatory to placing implant posts and then crowns in about three months.

My pacemaker's generator will be replaced a week from Monday. I heard the "European ambulance sound" this morning a bit before 10 am which is the signal the battery life is almost up.
I was looking for the cardiology department's phone number a few minutes later when they called and said, "Can you come in a week from Monday?"
It's the first replacement. They make it sound like an oil change. Make an appointment - bring it in - and we'll have you out in a jiffy.
I thought it would be more dramatic. Thoroughly underwhelmed - no drama at all.

The European ambulance sound is more disturbing than the American ambulance sound.

R383 does the alarm/siren come from your chest or do you have an external device like a key fob that sounds the alarm? That could be very scary if it went off in a meeting or watching a play or something.
|by Anonymous||reply 385||March 14, 2023 10:48 PM|
R385: It comes from inside your chest. I was looking around when I heard it, saw nothing blinking or beeping, thought, "Is that me?" and then "No, I hope," and then remembered the doc saying this is what it sounds like and he was right. The nurse who scheduled me said to expect the same sound at the same time every day until it's replaced, so it's predictable: the same sound at the same time.
I wish I had some meetings to go to this week or next...
R384: the American ambulance sound is very insistent when they're right behind you in your lane and you want to get out of their way, but not drive into oncoming traffic. The European Ambulance Sound is more wailing. The American sound is more brutal. I wonder if they program the European models to sound American.

R476, it's cute to use "night sweats" as a euphemism for "a bed-wetting issue." But the latter is nothing to be ashamed of. Perhaps something here would help, meant in a friendly, underwhelming way?
(Okay then - night sweats can be seasonal (a bedroom can seem as cool when we go to bed as in the winter, so we keep the thermostat where it's been, but spring makes a difference through the night. Also, I've found that eating - especially beef! - later in the day can trigger it. Medication can do it, or, of course, some health issues can cause sweats, but I'm not suggesting anything like that. Best of luck.)
