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’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.

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. The dentist gave me 30 Tylenol with codeine. I used three on Monday but have had no pain since. Not that I have any problem his generosity, but I thought the DEA did. Not so, apparently.

R277, my condolences on all that dental work. I had "just" a filling a couple of weeks ago and felt sick the next day.

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.)

If you have gout, you'll know it. It's anything but underwhelming. I had it once about 20 years ago, and just the top sheet being dragged across my big toe was excruciating. Maybe start a thread, gout guy.

R540- I got it once when I was on a trip to Cuba. The pain was EXHAUSTING. I drove my car home from the airport- just putting my foot on the accelerator pedal caused considerable pain.

by Anonymousreply 541April 3, 2023 4:32 AM

R540 I agree. I had it twice and the barely touch of a sheet on my big toe brought me to tears. I limped to the ER and was given liquids and antibiotics. Was out of there is two hours. Hurt like shit but taken care of quickly..

I have had gout diagnosed in a different location. Pain was about the same. Not excruciating.

r542 -- Why would your quack medicos give you an antibiotic for gout?!

by Anonymousreply 548April 3, 2023 1:06 PM

I don't know why I've said that. In Cuba was the WORST case of it because I did not know what it was and therefore had no medicine on me to treat it and as I said earlier the pain was EXHAUSTING. I have bouts of Gout plenty of times after that time in Cuba. My doctor told me to take Naproxen Sodium- 212 like the area code. Two at breakfast time, one at lunchtime and two after dinner everyday for five days. I've done this when the Gout starts acting up and that almost always does the trick.

I will go for a walk this afternoon. I need to do more than my usual 30+ minutes, which is walking 3 laps around my complex (it's a circle). I used to go out for a much longer walk but, once Winter hit and the time change back to EST, it got dark too early. After work is my preferred time since I don't have to worry about how long I've been gone.. So happy to be able to do my after work walks again!

Let me tell you about margining country risk for foreign investments, R551. While some believe there’s a country risk attached to foreign bonds and equities, that risk is actually inside of the actual spot price of the instrument and the residual is simply a mark to market change. I’d like to discuss the math, but I’m most comfortable with yen cross rates.

R550 here. I did get a chance to go for my walk yesterday afternoon. Went for a 2.5 miles walk around my neighborhood. I wanted to walk a little farther but it was chillier than I thought, and breezier. I wasn't appropriately dressed. Still, not bad.

I finally found a tea (tea bag) that I like! Celestial Seasonings rooibos vanilla. They don't sell it at my closest supermarket, though. They sell it at a health food store that's a little further away - same store where I get my bulk stuff.

You think that's stressful, At the grocery store today, I had to tie off 4 produce bags around oversize vegetables without twist ties. Seems like the cheapskates in charge have decided to save a few pennies by never providing ties again.

So, I have all the ingredients for a decent chili and half the ingredients for a cioppino. I could make a fake cioppino, but this is important. I have been ruminating on fish stew for the last week.

I don’t even have crusty bread.

This is a pleasant conundrum.

R583, I have fresh tomatoes and onion/celery/garlic,, mussels, crab meat, and cod, but I need fish stock and some good bread. I don’t fuck with baking.

I don’t want to get too whelming, but this is a in-the-mood-for-sexay dish. Not full whore- more goofy sensual dork…. Hence, the underwhelm

by Anonymousreply 587April 9, 2023 4:28 AM

R587, could you sub in chicken stock for the fish stock? I love cioppino. I think I'd survive without bread. Maybe a side of rice.

When I go for my walk around my complex, I look at the inspection stickers to see who has new cars and who hasn't gone to inspection since before the pandemic. Lots of new cars but one old minivan with a 2019 sticker in the window. I wonder when the cops will ticket this person.
