[quote] I think I'd prefer Mounjaro over Ozempic.

I switched from Ozempic to Mounjaro for maintenance. I had zero side effects on mounjaro and ganined 5lbs. Went back on ozemoic for a few months. Lost the weight I’d gained on mounjaro.

After a few months I decided to try mounjaro again. Felt so much better, but gained 6 lbs.

So…mounjaro has zero effect on me. It feels like I’ve taken nothing and fists a lot more money. So I just bought another month of Ozempic.

The Ozempic gives me stomach pain, but it cuts my appetite so I don’t even think about food.

I decided to look up some of my old college crushes on LinkedIn. The hottest of the bunch, who was a literal male model before college, has worked for the same NYC nonprofit for 25 years now. Good-looking for 50+, but tragically straight.

Somehow I always forget how much straight guys can blow up in weight after they hit 30 or 35. The ex-model is still trim, but I can't say the same for most of our first-year hallmates. The hunky lacrosse player across the hall from me is now 100 pounds overweight, mostly bald, and giving off a distinct Trumpy vibe.

I also found out that the nicest guy in my dorm died a few years back, due to a rare blood cancer. Smart & handsome, too, and still looked good even in a pic taken a year before he passed away.

Finally, the one other gay guy on my hall – and, coincidentally, one of only a dozen or so students out of 3,000+ from the same city; I didn't find out he like cock until running into him at a gay bar a decade later – is now a full-tilt Cabinette. He's a high-powered attorney married to a twink 20 years his junior, and while I knew even back in college that he was self-loathing, he's now on a bizarre anti-trans tear. (Well, maybe not that bizarre by DL standards, given its similarly bizarre number of transphobes, but still.)

According to Mashed the best way to prepare frozen waffles is to pre-butter them frozen and then cook on stove top in frying pan or in oven or air fryer.

Obviously don't pre-butter if putting in toaster.

Supposedly this pre-buttering method elevates the whole frozen waffle experience.

I can't vouch for it as I haven't tried it yet. Just passing along the information.

Real holes, not just little scratching to bury things, like squirrels do. I realized I hadn’t seen the chipmunks for at least a week. Then I found big holes leading under my deck.

So I was pissed when I was watering plants yesterday and saw a squirrel freeze when it saw me. That’s weird, I thought. Squirrels are very bold. They usually treat me like their servant.

Then I noticed - the squirrel didn’t have fur on its tail. And its very, very long tail was just hanging down instead of being curled at the end.

First BLT of Summer!

It feels like an Allrecipe comment.

I didn’t have beefsteak or gnarly farm tomatoes so I used Roma. I didn’t have romaine so I used part of a “chopped” kit. I didn’t have miracle whip so I used aioli. I didn’t fry the bacon, I baked it at 325 forever. The bread wasn’t cheap, white, and square; it was wide-ass white.

The whole thing tasted great.

r331 -- HVAC companies always want to sell you HVAC with systems with two-stage or with inverter technology. The idea being the machine will only work as hard as it needs to satisfy the thermostat, saving electricity/money. On mild days, low speed; on super hot days, full speed. Such HVAC equipment is expensive.

Augmenting my home's HVAC with a window unit allows me to reduce my energy use yet still remain comfortable. I only need to bring on the central AC on 95˚+ afternoons. It is the same thing as two-stage or inverter technology but is a much cheaper way to achieve the same goal -- efficiently and comfortably reduce energy use.

My window unit operates from a window at the rear of my house, not seen from the street.

Doing this is one of the smarter things I have done to keep money in my bank account rather than sending it to the power company.

R323 great question!

My first cleaning lady could only come on Saturdays, so I would time my errand-running at the time she was to arrive. I'd have her clean my bedroom first, and then basically hang out there for the remainder of the time she was cleaning. It took her about 4 hours total.

My new cleaning lady comes on Mondays (one of the days that I commute to the office). This works out perfectly!

I've always given my cleaning ladies keys to my apartment. NEVER had an issue of theft etc.

Used a new maple syrup, Sapjack and it was also good. They had a bourbon aged variety but I got the regular one which still had a tiny bit of bourbon flavor in my opinion.

The recipe calls for boiling the chicken in milk and then frying it. I can’t have fried food, so I baked it. It is sooo tender and it has absorbed more of the spices than I thought. Next time, I’ll up the cayenne pepper and sneak in some garlic. I may also try replacing the half&half with greek yogurt.

Yes I can AFFORD the bug spray. Doesn't mean I'm going to pay that much for it. I prayed on it and Jesus said snatch it. He thinks the price is a bigger sin than me stealing it. If I see some poors on the trail I'll let them use some.

Jesus did not say snatch it. You were talking to SATAN.

I have a particularly nice meatus. Well placed.

I’m making a few pairs of shorts from old sweatpants. Without a hem, they make me look like an alley scrap picker from the 60s. I’m hoping for more of a “Soviet Mandatory Athletic Fun and Optimism” look.

I'm watching Wuthering Heights (1939) on youtube.

The dentist rescheduled from 9 this morning to 1 on Friday. It's OK.

So I got a haircut this morning instead and my barber was very chatty.

Traffic was terrible, though. It always is now.

On day 7 of COVID and still coughing up a lung. I think one of the reasons I got hit so hard this time is that I was run down before I got sick. I’ve been forcing myself to go to bed at 10:00. If nothing else, I look better now that I’m well rested.

My coworker, who is around my age, whose name begins with a J, and who went to Catholic school, said he couldn't read my handwriting (capital "J" in script or cursive). Not sure what kind of Catholic school he went to.
