  1. Let's see if we can consolidate some of the "what are you eating/drinking/breathing" threads into this one. I am currently ingesting Crystal Light tea. Just had some hummus & pita chips beforehand. I'm considering getting a glass of Bulgarian buttermilk (I was shocked that my local Albertson's actually had the Bulgarian style! Nom.).
  2. Ricotta cheese-stuffed pasta shells, left over from last night. Nom.
  3. I took the redirect for files.catbox.moe out of my hosts file, thinking that it'd been fixed in your Greasemonkey script. Almost immediately, I got another virus warning from that same URL. Something is still fetching files from or at least trying to access that site, I think. (BTW, files.catbox.moe went back to 127.0.0.1 in my hosts file.)
  4. As with the thread from the previous incarnation of the board, I begin this one with a request that the information within remain confidential. This is a thread for those seeking support as they deal with very sensitive situations involving either their own or a loved one's health. Please let this be a thread where such information can be shared with a level of trust. Now, back to the topic at hand. I picked up my second filling of Brintellix yesterday—all $141 of it, for a month's supply. I find it odd that it is an antidepressant, yet the price is so high that it is depressing just to purchase it. As for its effects, I'm still getting used to them. I haven't been able to sleep for more than three hours at a time for a couple of weeks now. When I do wake up in the middle of the night, I'm not groggy. In fact, I feel for at least a short time that I've had a decent night's sleep. That sensation only lasts a few hours, though. I don't crash out—I just sort of fade to the point where I need to sleep again. Very weird. I've also lost weight. Not a lot, but every pound counts, and it's been a slow and steady drop. Some of this might be related to the small dose of metformin that I'm on (my A1C hit 6.5 again, causing my primary doctor to freak out). I seriously don't know. Whatever the reason, it made my cardiologist happy at my appointment yesterday. Speaking of cardiologists, mine determined that I am status quo as far as my PVCs are concerned. He hasn't seen them in the short 30-second EKGs he runs at every appointment, but the memory of my Holter monitor results from several years ago is enough to keep him on his toes. Still, he saw no reason to increase my lisinopril or to add a beta blocker to my shoebox full of medicines. I hope this thread will be as useful as the last one was. Thanks for any support you can provide.
  5. Found a good reason for part of why I've felt like crap the last few days (including the crescendo of coughing). Check out the charts here: https://www.pollen.com/forecast/current/pollen/75043 They rank pollen on a scale of zero to 12. Yesterday was an 11.1. The day before was an 11.6. Today is predicted to be an 11.7. Ohmydearlord. I've got to get out in that stuff an get my truck inspected, then go to a psych doctor appointment. Forget paper breathing masks. I need a respirator mask.
  6. Aussie Rules Football regular season play is underway! I'm watching Carlton try to mount a comeback from a huge halftime deficit to Richmond. Not going so good at the moment. Carlton trails 64 - 93 halfway through the third quarter.
  7. I hope they made a good pitch for the procedure.
  8. I hope you haven't put my stuff on your second tier or lower.
  9. I just heard a bunch of banging around coming from the back of the house. Mrs. Prof is already asleep, so I assumed it was the cat causing some kind of mischief. The only problem with my hypothesis was that I couldn't find the cat. He wasn't in the bedroom, the guest room, or any other of his usual haunts. I double-checked the bedroom and saw a lump under the covers, so I assumed it was the cat and that I'd been hearing things. I gave up my search and proceeded to the bathroom. When I turned on the light, I found a very guilty looking cat. He'd been playing with the toilet plunger. He'd knocked it over and had been swatting it between the toilet and the bathtub. Lord only knows what he was after, but I'm not gonna let him lick me for a day or two minimum.
  10. Got a call from Spine Team Texas today (that's really what they call themselves). They wanted to make sure I scheduled physical therapy a couple of weeks after my diagnostic spine injection procedure on the 30th. Bit of a problem with that—I've got an appointment with an electrophysiologist on April 4th to get a long-term (three weeks or so) monitor to figure out what's going on with my heart and all the PVCs. I don't know how physical therapy sessions are going to affect the monitoring. That, plus I still haven't stopped coughing yet. Too many damned doctors.
  11. I would say that's a significant statistic, regardless of the doctor's possible bias. Git yerself treated.
  12. Are you trying to get N.A.T.O. or U.N.I.T. on the case?
  13. I have a feeling your window might be acting as some sort of BMEWS system for the Elder Gods.
  14. Cat-n't. Too much Dogma to get around.
  15. My refrigerator just sent a series of lengthy rapid-fire bursts of copper-tinged bubbling, in different pitches, at approximately 6:20 a.m.. mlooney, are you doing some early morning dishwashing?
  16. Has anyone else been getting virus warnings when visiting the forum? G DATA has been going crazy, popping up a warning on every page. It refers to a virus being found in files downloaded from files.catbox.moe , and the only way I've been able to get rid of it is to go into my hosts file and set the address of that url to 127.0.0.1. I've warned tOH and asked him to pass it along, but I'm not sure whom else to warn. Just take care as you browse.
  17. story

    If The Dan hadn't already pooh-poohed the idea, this would be a good place for Elliot to summon an inner demon.
  18. Thank you. I've downloaded the latest revision, and all seems well. Bravo.
  19. Wouldn't work. This is a 1970's era house. Pollen seeps through the microcracks in the walls, ventilation system, and attic. I'm doomed, even with an allergen filter on my air conditioner.
  20. Agreed, but I can't handle those damned tomatoes and sport peppers. Bleaugh. Besides, I'm hooked on currywurst sauce now. Any kind of hot dog has to be dragged through currywurst sauce. Even a Der Weinerschnizel hot dog.
  21. The cat that cost me my dinner yesterday has been caught.
  22. I hope I'm not acting the fool for starting this topic, but I have a question about how much of Ellen's magic has been shown in the strip. By "how much," I really mean "variations." So far, I can only think of two types of magic she has been show to be capable of directly invoking on her own: Her TF beam. Her copy spell. Her copy spell has given her access to other abilities for a short time, most notably Nanase's "angel" defense spell. (I have to wonder if Ellen could invoke that on her own now.) However, I cannot remember Ellen invoking anything else that would be out of her own spellbook. Can anyone help me out with some other examples here? Or, lacking examples, how about some speculation about what she might be able to do?
  23. Thank you for clearing that up. I probably should have looked in my Chicago Manual of Style for it, but it might not have been there. Man, the Tramadol is taking forever to build that damned serum level. The Topamax is more-or-less helping with the nerve on my lower right back since it's been at serum levels (200mg) for at least a week now. The Tramadol eventually gets around to numbing some of the rest of my chronic pain spots (ankles, lower left back, knees), but when it wears off, it's like if falls off of a cliff. Medicine times are 7am, 1pm, and 7pm, and my body looks forward to them. Meanwhile, I've done little beyond sleep on my sofa today because of the pain. Not much else I can do, except for brief excursions into the internet (current AP Style Guide case ).
  24. Oh, man, don't get yourself into that situation. Did your back muscles go on you or did your quads spasm?
