*rubs Yggy's cold bits*

Catching things as they fall is precisely how Larry broke his hand. Now he has to see a hand specialist, may have surgery. His arthritis doc is very worried about his iron saturation, so he may have to go back to hematology, see what can be done. I'm a bit worried.

So you be careful, hmm?

WILL YOU PLEASE LET ME SOAK IN PEACE.

. . . Hey AntiM--I hope it's good news for Larry's poor hand. A person with his energy must be absolutely stir crazy right now!

Hia Gang!
I'm having hot Tea and reading my email. :coffee:
Ygmir Be careful, being tired while around heavy work is a sure fire way to get squished. sory for preaching, I'm kinda in worry mode recently.
Hope all works out smooth for yourLary AntiEm. I've been learning a lot about Bone density and age lately also having a lot of pain from last years Pelvis fracture and Cracked Ribs. I have an Appointment with the Doctor next week and have a lot of questions for her in regards to hormones and bone density, old injures and what not. was told that my Blood work came back and my liver enzyme levels were "pretty good for my age/weight" that kinda surprised me, Kinda figured my liver functions would resemble a bar rag. guess the Sweat-lodges and poverty induced sobriety pay off in the end! :)

annyhoo best wishes to all!

Yeah, of course. Even if I can't hold Indian Passport, I can get something called as "Person of Indian Origin" card that would give me few of my rights, like to visit India without a visa and so on.

My primary concern is this -
aserendipity wrote:Yes, that part of the vow was really tense to listen to as each applicant forswore their homeland.

I don't know if I can ever get up on a stage an forswore my country. Even though holding a US passport has lot of perks, I just can't seem to get my head around ever having to do this!

So my father and at least one of my sisters have duel citizenship, and I don't think it's been a problem for them, and my niece and nephew have a different duel citizenship (I don't know if they are eligible for triple...) and I haven't heard of it's being a problem for them. When my sister and nephew were here last year, I remember his talking about how he uses a different passport for different travel.
I should look into getting mine, find out if I'm still eligible, at least.

I had a leftover playa dinner for lunch. Tasty Bites Tandoori Rice, with Palak Paneer (spinach and cheese). YUM.

Fishy , I too may be eligible for triple as my father came from Spain and my Mother from Germany. If you do pursue this topic please let me know important inf. There is no way I want to be less patriotic today though.
And yes Savannah, I also have some of that Playa tandoori and also mango still dust covered in the box. This is the time to use it then.

Good stuff, Grai--glad you're getting a second chance at the job, and getting into the holiday spirit. Getting your tools back probably helped, aye? :)

Haha, yeah! I ate 20% of my food this year. A record low. Friends (and ESD) kept feeding me! :) And of course, I had too much with me--as usual.

So yeah, I'm slowly going through my playa food by matching the weird little foodstuff to the weird little occasion. It's funny how I don't want to eat Tasty Bites for dinner at all in the default world (because I prefer to cook a little more than that, or have an elaborate salad) but transported to work--the food is suddenly festive. And I don't want to eat my remaining Luna bars for breakfast of a work day, but if I'm on a roadtrip to a performance in the middle of @#$%ing nowhere, it's the perfect high-protein snack to keep me from eating a bunch of fast food (if I'm not interested).

And any leftover shelf-stable milk is perfect for the workdays when I'm out of milk for my coffee and the idea of going for a carton in the rain gives me a Sad. :lol:

what a shitty 24 hours! been a couch tato all day. last night what a scary night for sure. about a half hour before i left work i started getting a head ache like i had never had before, the top of my skull felt like it was going to burst, i felt like i was drunk and i was messing up my speech. i came home and called first nurse and told her all the symptoms i had. she said to go to the er right away and she would let them know i was on my way. woke tom up and went down. they took a ct scan of me and asked me about my family history. doctor comes back after and hour and a half of waiting in mind blowing pain and tells me i have a 10- 15% chance i have Subarachnoid hemorrhage in my brain and they want to do a spinal tap to check for blood in my spinal fluid. i freak out and start crying cause the thought of a spinal tap scars the shit out of me. if it comes back positive i have to go see a neurosurgeon. The whole thing freaked me out alot. I decided not to get the spinal tap and they gave me a pain killer shot for my head. still having some weird issues with my head but not the pain really. stupid part is the whole time im thinking i have to shave my head again and will it grow back in time for burning man.. will i even be able to go to burning man this year. i have my priority's fucked up a bit huh?

talked to my normal dr today and she said she has not seen the report yet but she thinks if it was very serious they would have not let me go so easy. but i still have it in the back of my mind that i should get the spinal tap done. ugg. i dont need this shit to worry about.

i actually shaved my head aug 2011. i just now have some decent hair back so thats why i was worried asbout having to lose it again lol.

back in 2002 or 2001 my best friend had a one of these happen to him. I would talk to him everyday on the phone at lunch. one day he was saying he had a very bad headach while i was talking to him, then about 10 min later he stopped talking. he had past out. he was life flighted to the next biggest city and was in a coma for a week. so i was really worried i was having the same thing happening cause it sounded just like what he said when he had his. i just have to keep an eye on things and rest.

Oooh, yummy breakfast!

*thumps ECM* :coffee: :coffee: :coffee:

We had one small storm last month, we are still in the 50s! Much too warm.

Larry is indeed going a bit stir crazy. No lights on the roof this year unless he gets help. I'm no help, I'm terrified of ladders.

Hey, Misa!
Warm day here, headed to the 70s.
Tshirt weather when you're working.

Finally got some help yesterday moving, so I can get to the stuff I can do myself now.
Eventually get down to the stuff I can't move without help, but that goes last.
So I'm chuffed.

Right elbow giving me grief, so the help yesterday makes such a difference.
Running around on six foot racks, got to remember to keep that weight inside the edge :D
