I bounced into skiffy this morning and it was fine, but now I can't get teh Harem open. You'd think a professional gig like that would pay more attention to user services.

but then, they did run Flash Gordon. Shudder.

Margaret, you have no idea how much you owe me lol. I spent nearly 2 1/2 hrs this am going through stuff to find you minis. Okay that took about 40 mins once I pulled out what I had to pull out to GET to the boxes. Then I had to spend nearly 2 hours going through stuff I would let Larry sell that Leora would never want. Lots of yelling was involved when he took about 40 neat perfect vermille chains and got them tangled up (another 20 mins to get them untangled). Of course I started it as I let the all the dogs but Sayblee out, so she was screaming she had to pee, and they were screaming... omg we are OUTSIDE ALL THIS TIME WE'LL DIE.

LOL anyway, I think you will be happy with all the goodies :) I know Leora will be happy with the more adult jewelry I pulled out for her.

And Larry is happy he has stuff to give his ebay worker.

And I am happy I pulled out some BIG pewter (as in 8 to 17 inches tall :) ) pieces I had packed up but want to display now. So all is good. Sayblee's bladder didn't burst. The chow didn't burst into flames from not being directly under my feet for over 2 hrs.

Now I am off to make pictures, then go over to Leora's boyfriend's house and help him with applying for scholarships (that he should have done 3 mos ago, don't ask)... and to lecture him on stalking my child. (long story short, he calls her all the time... even when she tried to tell him while she is in Philly to NOT call, its her time with her grandparents. It is only 3 days for crying out loud, lol.)

LOL I don't think you can keep tabs on gifts from the heart :)

Ya think? Except he goes to school, takes advanced NIGHT school math classes, and WORKS, stays in top 7 percent of class. Yeah, puppy love but sadly I don't think she is 1/4 as enamoured with him as he is with her. Isn't that the way it always goes?

Since I've had comcast phone before, I'd still be looking at $40+ just for people to annoy me. I can get that here for free.

I think you will be very happy with your care package :) I have a variety. Btw, the 2 hollowed curve rocks are to hold eggs. I'll mail them tomorrow as I go to pick up James to go to pick up Leora.

it's fun looking through old stuff. you go: "i didn't know i had that." the problem is if you're looking to get rid of stuff, you end up keeping more that you give up. :roll:

so i'm lurking at the GW con thread & wondering when cameroncraz will got to the harem thread & give us all the [s]dirty[/s] details.

*mutters to herself* some day i will go to a convention. some day i will go to a convention.

Cam is back, but afraid to post the pics so will only give links. NO ONE else cares that CCon says pics not to be posted, but she is concerned.

i never understood C-Con's position on that. you'd think they'd want pics to go out so people would see what goes on there & go themselves. :?

Well, if she chooses to follow the rules, I'm going to be fine with links.

Yeah, I'm going to the Farscape C-con in November, if I am disappointed, at least it won't be with Stargate doings. And, oh joy, I think SW will be there. Wanna see how we get along in RL. Probably peachy. Start raising the bail money now.

Burbank. She knows I'm going, we've reached a cordial stage of discourse about it. I think it make sher crazy that I too am a Farscape fan and ex-military. Heeee. I am going to make her like me, that sounds weird, but I find it the best revenge.

Yikes, that's one buttload of pollen.

Make her like you? LOL, we are not twins after all. The idea of someone like her liking me makes my skin crawl. The horrific things she has said about and to people makes her someone I am proud dislikes me.

Well, very little sleep last night, fitful nap today, I am going to try to get some sleep.

Actually, she and I have things in common once you get past the mean attitude and the pessimistic outlook. I have this foolish thing where I think I can get people to drop their negativity. Lead by example kinda idea. May do nothing at all, but it can't hurt to try and get past all the nastiness. If I don't, no loss, but there may be something worth finding under that trollish hide. Most people I wouldn't bother with, but I've seen glimmers. Although I know she's been horrid to you, and that might make or break any type of civil interaction.

My nice streak runs far too deep and gets me into trouble. Hopelessly optimistic. You're shaking your head, aren't you?

Rest, keep in touch, I worry.

Too bad I didn't read your post BEFORE I got in flame war, huh?

For her, it isn't just nastiness. It is the abundant willingness to LIE on people, make up whatever she can to smear them. I can get along with nasty people, pessimism. But when I utterly do not respect them, that's another ball game.

I am in a terrible funk today, just no energy for anything, still crying. I don't know what I will do til we get the lab results. Life is so unfair. I cannot imagine not having this dog with me.

Hope you knew the flame war was not related to the rest, which was about SW.

Am off to store, cannot believe it is passover this week. Head not into it. Then I have to go help Leora's (soon to be ex)boyfriend with a computer problem.

Really think the new SaraJane (Dr Who) spinoff is fun.

Am worried about McCain beating Obama.

bbl.

I am wonderfully oblivious some days.

HUgs again .. there is a pet thread here if you'd like to post some pictures, if that would help. Very responsive community here, they'd be supportive.

SW, well, I want to meet the Devil and shake his (her) hand. I'll have mylarry with me for protection.

Haven't seen The new spin-off yet, I suppose I should get the dvr reprogrammed. Soon.

I'd rather have Obama, yet he worries me in some ways. Nothing I can identify concretely. The one thing I like about McCain is he's a Navy vet, I'm pretty sure he wouldn't screw us vets over. That, and he's anti-torture as an ex-POW. Doesn't mean I'd vote for him or trust him as president, but he's not Bush Co..

ex-boyfriend, huh?

LOL I just saw a locked thread and read a bit of the last 2 pages. You know, what I really dislike is knowing who believes that creationism is SCIENCE and provable, and also thinks that believe in science is a religion. I am sorry, it does effect how I see their intelligence so I'd rather not know. :(

I am preparing to celebrate Passover, I am not anti-religion, but I am utterly for teaching FACTS and logical science, not faiths.

Ah, the notorious now locked thread ... not on eplaya people, relax, it was over on skiffy. Began as a poster insisting there really is a stargate to open wormholes, and devolved into a creationism vs. evolution debate.

I hope you think I'm as brightly flaky or as flakily bright as ever. I have to admit, I gave my diplomatic skills a workout. What is scary is I've read some of Ken Hamm's BS, makes me want to scream!!!!!!

Well passover begins tomorrow evening so I have spent the day doing the soup, chicken and planning so I don't stress tomorrow. I also cooked Sayblee up more food (ground chuck, boiled chicken and ground pork so she has variety to up her protein without upping those cancer feeding carbs).

I am waiting waiting waiting for my vet to call.

Leora is going on a field trip with the astronomy club tonight (BIG telescope looking at the stars, lol). So I'll have to record both Sara Jane and Dr Who for her.

Also spoke with the new permanent nurses aid who is staying with my inlaws. I was a little alarmed as I thought Dad had taken turn for worse but she said no, that he fell the other night and Uncle Jack hired her to help... and that it is more for Mom (who is in very early Alzheimer's stage) who, under stress is forgetting more and more. So she is going to cook for them, clean, and is making them declutter (something we haven't been able to get packrat Dad to do in 20 yrs!). She was so funny, said she told them she is the black Martha Stewart and she WILL get them organized and fed. I feel so much better knowing she is there 24/7. I spoke to Uncle Jack who seemed to be worried that we would be upset about the money (he had them put him as executor last week, which we didn't know... but MY feelings is he is THERE, he should be.. whether hubby will have a fit I don't know) but I assured him that he did the right thing. (Should he have talked to my husband, yeah, but I didn't go into that.)

The nice thing is someone from the Holocaust org came to sit with him for over 2 hours and is going to type it all up. They had talked to him several years ago, so I think this was mostly follow up and filling in more details. Uncle Jack said Dad was very happy to make sure his story is recorded with them.

So anyway, I am outta here for a bit.

I heard coughing last night and nearly had a stroke, imagined her choking. LOL it was ARWEN (the other basenji) coughing (she was eating a tissue, don't ask.) Anyway, so I dreamed I woke up and she was dead, so I called my vet this am and asked WHEN they could do xrays and she said come on in, they'd work me in. So I went in, and while her spleen and liver are enlarged (which they expected), her chest is clear.

Okay after hell on earth I am going with GA Veterinary Specialists in Sandy Springs. While I found a wonderful vet that does some chemo, his prices weren't much better and to have the top people who were actually cheaper (because of course, when you do 20 dogs a day and no meds are wasted... ie charge only for what you use... makes a difference) with the most experience, it's what needs to be done. So she goes in Tues at 4 for evaluation and POSSIBLY first treatment. I don't feel like I am just desperately trying anything. We have a chance for a good year, maybe more. Whatever I get, I will cherish.

Although funny aside. On the way to the vet, she began to cry, which she doesn't do. I had no idea what she wanted so... honest, she waited til I was LOOKING AT HER, locked her eyes on me, and went to POOP IN MY POCKET BOOK! I screamed NO!!!!!. Man did I ever pull over fast and get her out to potty. LOL, She said.... okay, you won't pull over, you'll be sorry. Would I ever have been.

Anyway, right now is the first I have got some relief from the utter panic and helplessness. We have a plan, we have appointment with oncologist, and I am feeling more in control of the things I CAN control.

Have had an exhausting but good day.

For years I have spent truly grotesque time cleaning dead bees (honest, with well over 100 every time I clean the 2 feeders at least every 2 to 3 wks, we have wiped out colonies :( ) out of my humming bird feeders, and ants... I found there are now little guards to predrown the ants (I do smear the polls up with vasoline but it doesn't stop them... they get so many they can crawl over the dead to eventually get to the feeder!) and caps to keep the bees out. So I got the predrown for my 2 existing and a new feeder with the bee guards. I will probably throw out my 2 old ones as the caps won't fit in them and get 2 more that do have them.

Then I cleaned out and filled my five main bird feeders and smeared vasoline on the poles. :) It stops the squirrels from climbing them without being toxic. Little bastards. I used to feed them tons and they still killed my feeders so now I give them some food but just stop them with the vasoline. They call me a lot of bad names but I don't care.

I also did laundry, water fountain cleaning, general cleaning etc. But that's not nearly as fulfilling as getting ready for the birds. (oh and put together new computer chair last night)

So now I am showered and can rest til I get ready to fix dinner.
