Re-employed, but poor until payday. I can’t afford vape juice, so I’m back to smoking tobacco. One lighter has a flint, but no butane. Another has fluid, but a broken flint. The tobacco is loose, so I’m smoking a pipe.

A stronger person would simply quit. Instead, I light one lighter with another and then light up.

My sous vide egg bite maker cost me $29.99.

I didn’t want to do the work to use it today and considered buying the packaged bites which cost $5.99.

By an heroic effort of self control, I bought 12 eggs for $6.99 instead. I’m sure a cost benefit will eventually be realized here. Maybe it already has been. I do use the cute little machine frequently.

I’ll stop here. This whole issue is whelmier than I expected.

I went today to pick up my tax paperwork with the intention of going to a nearby deli to get a sandwich. My accountant ended up talking my ear off for a half an hour and the deli guy was locking the door.

Nearly whelmed by the unfortunate timing, I decided to go to the grocery store to pick up a few things. An unplanned trip to a supermarket on a Saturday could very easily overwhelm me but there was no line at the deli counter and plenty of cashiers.

When I got home and was making my sandwich, I was so impressed with how neatly each piece of roast beef was sliced, folded, and stacked on the paper before being wrapped up. Clearly by someone who takes great pride in his work. That kid is going places, I tell you!

I vacuumed both bedrooms this weekend after not doing it for a very long time. It always amazes me that even though I can’t see the exact results, there’s a definite uptick in the serenity of the rooms. Quite whelming, actually.

I got my taxes done at the last minute today. Was sort of pleased that I’m not getting a refund. I owed less than $40 to the federal guvmint, and $3 to the commonwealth.

A boast: I just completed a “Puzzle 5” from the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament.

In the words of its author: “And then there’s Puzzle 5. The evil, evil Puzzle 5. The impasse to any and all positive solving momentum up to that point. It’s designed to be truly impenetrable on purpose, to separate the elite solvers from the rest of the pack. Think a Thursday-plus-plus theme gimmick combined with Saturday-plus-plus cluing. Oh, and you have only 30 minutes to finish the whole thing. The vast majority of solvers come nowhere close.”

I came nowhere close in 30 minutes, but I persisted and completed it.

Just did a couple of loads of laundry and my Samsung washer and dryer played their happy little tune at the end of the cycles. This reminded me of a bizarre incident a couple of years ago.

A friend of mine asked if I could throw some handyman work the way of a friend of his father who was having tough times. He assured me that although older, the guy was competent, liberal, blah blah....

So I called guy over to give me a price for some very MINOR tasks in my laundry room and spare bedroom. Salty old guy arrives, gives me judgmental stink eye and proceeds to give me an outrageous price for these inconsequential tasks a teenager could do. Tasks I didn't really even need done anyway, just trying to help out. I tell him the high price is not commensurate with the work. He does the tired old "tell you what I'm gonna do for you" and cuts price in half which is closer to what it should be. I agree to the lower price.

I ran a load of laundry while he worked in the laundry room. When he finished and I was paying him, he said he wanted the higher price he first quoted because if I could afford a washer and dryer "that played music", I could afford to pay him more. I declined, paid him the agreed upon lower reasonable price and wished him a happy life as we would not be crossing paths again.

That's my Samsung appliances play a happy tune story.

For the dark eye circle suffer, have you had blood work done? I had them, too. I tried every concealer under the sun ('m female) but nothing worked. Had blood work done and found out I was anemic. I was prescribed iron vitamins by my doctor. They are gone now and I no longer need the iron pills as I take a multi-vitamin for women 50+.

I've decided to take advantage of Empire Today's flooring sale. Having all of my floors (kitchen, 2 bathrooms, and wall-to-wall carpet) replaced for $7500. I will use my gym membership money to pay towards that and take advantage of walking in the Spring, Summer, and Fall. Then I'll join Planet Fitness. As an AARP member, I can join PF for $28/month with no enrollment fee.

I just got a frost warning here in southern NY from NWS. Right after I read a gardening sub on Reddit where someone up in Canada wanted to know if the 30F temperature was responsible for her drooping tomato plant…and BTW, she also said, “It’s going to be the same temps for a few days.”

Why do people actively ignore Grow Zone/Frost Date maps? (Canada as well as the US have them). Do they wake up on the first warm and sunny day of the year and say, “Must be time to plant tomatoes outside! Yessirree, winter’s over for good. We’re going to have Mediterranean weather from now until October.”

I don’t plant until May 22nd. Some years my hydrangeas don’t flower because of frosts in early-mid in May.

If you want to garden and have no experience and no knowledge, do yourself a favor and take a look at the grow maps as one of the very first things you do.

I may be asking for trouble here but I did enjoy this compilation of Lens Dunham's three appearances. Craig seems to really like her. At the 7:20 mark she talks about his movie The Big Tease in which he plays a gay man. He then tells a cute anecdote about his real life gay interior decorator.

Is hating potluck food yet another DLism? I haven't worked in an office where potlucks were the norm in decades, and I neither rejected potluck food as a norm, nor noticed anyone else doing so. Is it a response to AIDS? (I still don't do birthday cakes with candles.)

I continue my adventure of watching Craig Ferguson's old late-night show.

2014 Elisabeth Moss appearance and she is too short for the chair and her feet can't touch the floor. Craig offers her a foot stool he offers all short actresses with his usual accompanying joke of "we have this foot stool in case Tom Cruise is ever on the show". She initially giggles and accepts the foot stool. Then after a minute or two says she's uncomfortable and doesn't want the foot stool anymore.

I'm suspect Scientologist Elisabeth realized she was already in deep shit with the borg for laughing at the Tom Cruise joke so she better reject the stool to try and mitigate whatever reprimand from was in store for her.

I like when Craig dances with the horse. He has big feet.

He was right, it is good. Better the Nescafe Classico and Starbucks Instant (instant in the little can not VIA packets). Amazon carries it as does Walmart for much cheaper.

I use it as an occasional afternoon pick me up. I don't like Keurig coffee as it isn't hot enough. I use a Farberware percolator in the morning which makes very hot and good coffee.

I've mentioned this before here but worth repeating: to make any brand of instant coffee taste better, add just a bit of COLD water to the granules (a tablespoon or two) and make a little paste, then add the hot water.

The first pass through the "Whitest Whites" cycle with All Free and Clear, Arm and Hammer Laundry Soda, bleach, and an hour's soak in a diluted enzyme mix after scrubbing them with Dawn detergent cleaned about half of them spotlessly. The second - as yet not spotless - batch are the washer now having undergone the same treatment again.

I was called by NP from my pulmonology office and asked to go to Major University Hospital to drop off a sputum specimen at that hospital. Very important for me to use that hospital, she said, not an outside lab. (They also have me go to their hospital for CT scans, not to have CT done elsewhere). I live 3 hours away. Ok, sez I. I will go into city and will make appointment to get hair cut and have lunch in old neighborhood across town just so I can drop off specimen in their lab.

But please, I begged, the last three times I was asked to give specimens there were no orders in computer. Not at Major Hospital and not at Independent Outpatient Lab.

“No problem, I just put order in computer!” said she.

Can you email me a requisition, or fax or snail mail me an order on Rx pad just in case it’s not in computer? My GP does it all the time …just hands me a piece of paper from RX pad with order for lab test or imaging, I go to my local lab/hospital and get test done.

No, that’s impossible, she said.

Of course when I made time to go to his hospital, which was completely out of the way on other side of town in crippling traffic, there was no order in computer.

Fourth time this has happened.

I spent over 40 minutes at lab, showed them note the NP wrote in my chart saying “I spoke with patient on phone who will come to hospital in May 11 to drop off specimen.” Called pulm office answering g service, finally got hold of some peon to put order in.

On my 3 hour ride home I got a message of test result, claiming my specimen was contaminated with oropharyngeal flora and so….it was discarded. Test not performed.

I've never heard "appliance pair" before this thread, r494. Plus he used the word "chuffed."

I believe US appliance stores use the term to denote a matched set of washer and dryer.

"Chuffed" OTOH is not a word used often (if at all) in the States.

I’d like to use “chuffed”, but I’m afraid I’d confuse it’s meaning. I did that with “dearth” and the internet was mean.

Chuffed and dearth have pretty simple meanings.
