  • Nooooooooo... I live in military housing currently so that's not an unheard of nor uncommon issue depending on which installation you live. I'm hoping it's seasonal something or other. I've been living so many places with a higher humidity in the winter that finally being someplace that's relatively dry and cold for the…
  • Here I am... 10 days later.. and that cough got worse. Now I spend most of my day coughing, trying not to cough or sucking down Ricola cough drops in the hope that it will soothe the reflex enough so that I'm not coughing all the time. Sometimes it's dry, sometimes it's not. Still feel fine outside of that, but…
  • Late to this party, but there should be no difference; if the ogling is to the same degree from either party, then the result should be the same. The difference would be how far each partner would take it if it were say, a hot co-worker instead. And that's more about possessiveness, jealousy, trust and insecurity issues…
  • Mildly concerned at this dry cough I've developed? Admittedly, it's very dry, windy and chill here. The breeze blows strongly off the river front and leads to some gale-type weather a lot. However, the last week or so, I've developed this mildly irritating dry cough and I am unsure if it's a symptom of a minor infection…
  • I think I've adapted to the loneliness to the point where I'm not bothered by it, but maybe also, I am an introvert and get my energy from being alone? Being in a room full of people and chatting can be fun (sometimes), but I find it really, really draining. I will take hard naps after a few hours of chatting at a social…
  • Currently: the cold weather. I really don't enjoy cold weather. It dries out my skin (which makes it hurt) and I hate feeling the cold on my face. I also despise having to put on three layers just to feel comfortable enough to walk to the store or to school (about a 5 - 10 min. walk).
  • Currently I'm feeling passed over and ignored. This place and the lack of people I once chatted with aren't helping. It's like stepping into it brand new all over again. But consistently, throughout my time on this planet, that's how I've felt. Always passed over for people who look better than I do, have better resources,…
  • Long time, no see (yet again). How have you all been?
  • Tired. This 8 hour class cycle in-between no sleep, someone snoring and my child's inconsistent school schedule on account of snow has meant that keeping up with anything health related is non-existent. No time to go exercise and it's way too *kitten* cold to walk right now. The best I can do is mostly reign in my eating…
  • I don't make resolutions because I can't keep them. I do set some goals I like to work toward, though. * Reducing waste in my home. * Reducing clutter (I can only give away or gift my own items, so this may be harder to achieve since I live with other people who have a pack rat mentality). * Drinking one glass of water a…
  • Reading up on zero waste ideas I might not know about and could implement in my home. Finished cleaning up the kitchen counters and dishes, so chilling at the computer with some tea. Also wondering if that predicted 2.5 inches of snow will hit us. We had 10 inches already and it stopped the city for two days and blocked up…
  • I haven't seen snow since 2017 (and that was just a dusting). Our cats (Binx and Jonesy) had never seen it until today.
  • Okay, while the technician who gave me my booster yesterday was super sweet, he lied. My experience was almost as bad as the second shot (Moderna). I ended up feeling like I had the flu again, shivering uncontrollably, my feet went numb, couldn't get warm, muscle aches, headache, etc. Bleh. A little better now, but still…
  • I just got back from my booster shot... and now I have a weird creeping headache. A pure coincidence, right? Still, kinda sucks.
  • * How anyone in this wide world finds me attractive at all given what I look like, particularly naked. * That life is annoying; it consistently insists on getting in my way. * That I might always be mediocre at best. I have nothing to really push or drive me and I lack any and all forms of self-motivation, which is kind of…
  • Cat approval is an important step in any crafted goods in our household. It comes in various stages.
  • A very mild irk, I suppose, but the vinyl I ordered and that was shipped Nov. 29th still hasn't manifested. I was told by the UK based company to give it six weeks, which puts that at about Jan. 10th before contacting them for a refund or reissue. Pretty sure since it's been a month that it's not going to show up ever. So…
  • Waiting around for Christmas dinner. Brisket and green bean casserole this time around.
  • A host of small worries and quandaries, mostly. Like, why do I have erotic dreams about ex-boyfriends from 20 years ago, but never my husband? The boyfriend in question isn't even that attractive and wasn't a good match for me (the sex was mediocre, too!).
  • An old friend of mine from college (anime club) is missing. His family opened up a missing persons report today as his car is missing, but his place looks like he was meant to return (his cat was still there, awaiting his return.. and he'd never go away on a trip without him). He can't be contacted nor traced through his…
  • For future long distance gifting, I suggest using a pack and ship store that utilizes FedEx or UPS. Both of them have so far been reliable this year, although they have more stringent guidelines about your box (but you can easily ask them for guidelines). Both sets of parents shipped our gifts this year using UPS and…
  • There's a lot that local PO workers don't know about the system. They aren't taught about the online system unless they specifically work for the service centers. Not even the postal workers *at* the PO know a lot. For instance, I spent 30 minutes in line because the lady at the nearest PO didn't know how to ship to a…
  • The USPS is and has been a joke for years. I just spent 30 minutes in line because the ONE clerk behind the counter was not only continually going as slow as possible (she always does this), but because she, the postal employee, did not know how to mail a lady's package to a European address or how to input it in the…
  • Is it okay to be irked that my partner can't seem to be happy that I'm actually doing pretty well at learning Korean simply because he's not? It's like he can't stand that there might be SOMETHING I'm better at than he is.. that he was vaguely interested in, but won't acknowledge the fact that the *reason* for that is…
  • Our son actually cut a rectangle shaped hole in a box so our old fluffy monster cat could sit in it. I mean, I'm pretty sure he could have fit, but it was about comfort. :D
  • I automatically get suspicious when someone wears that much cologne or perfume. Like, what are they trying to hide under that odoriferous cloud?
  • That's cool. I'm a woman who hates Hallmark movies in general and all romance/rom-coms. They just aren't my genre, but I can appreciate people who like them. Pretty cool to know there are guys who like the genre since it often gets stereotyped as a "women's only" sort of thing.
  • Ah, someone else knows my pain. Finding shoes in my size is a hassle in store as well. Even worse is when you attach the W (wide) label to whatever size you are. I have almost no choice but to special order at a shoe store or take my chances online.
  • Ah, yes.. I forget other people actually get to visit their families and friends. That's never an option for me.
  • It's almost a ghost town after the update. I was hoping some of the folks would return, but they must have just *really* hated the new layout. :D
