Ah, like mother, like son then? Assuming this is your wife's father's mother?

Yeaaah... can sort of relate with the selfish and coldly opinionated relatives. It's exactly why we started having Thanksgiving with just us here at the house and my aunt (mom's sister) and uncle no longer invited.

Nah, her mother's mother (the person my wife is named after, oddly enough). One of those "It's just an animal, it's not like it's a human being" types. People can take that sh*t and cram it.

Aaaaaaaand the car broke down so we can't go looking for him until the weekend. AYE.

Thanksgiving sucks. I'm pretty sure it's my all-time least favorite holiday. As a kid it always ended with someone drunkenly fist-fighting and usually the cops being called. As an adult, at best it's forced conversation with people I don't like and have nothing in common with. At worst it's flashbacks to everything that made me hate it in the first place.

Wife's fighting with her family, so we stayed home. Her dad was going to make food just for the four of us, but instead he got drunk. He's on a rampage again, so I can't even cook. Car's busted, so we can't leave. Not a bar or a Denny's around for miles and everything within walking distance is closed. I have a 10-hour shift tomorrow, and apparently all I can subsist on until then is coffee and beer. Fun.

Every year it's something. I f*cking hate Thanksgiving. Not that this year gave me anything to be thankful about, anyway. By far, worst year of my life. I'll be "thankful" when it's over.

At midnight yesterday, one of my cats bit my right index finger real bad.

He was trying to fight the adult foster that lives in my room because she doesn't like other cats.

So I'm on antibiotics for ten days. And amoxicillin tablets are big f*ckers

Aw, that sucks! Hope it's starting to feel a tiny bit better.


Grind... shoplifters selling on eBay.

Saw a seller that is selling quite a few Hallmark ornaments (and nothing else), all brand new 2019 stock (and multiple listings of certain ornaments), that would have cost a lot of money all together, and yet have them all listed for low starting bids that aren't exactly racking up sums anywhere near meeting or exciting the retail cost. Really suspect this person could be someone's store employee who is stealing and selling them...

SO, my wife and her mom were out in the woods looking for the dog today... and they found him... BUT they couldn't catch him.

He was apparently like 50 feet away from them but completely ignored them calling out or offering his favorite treats, then took off into the woods and they couldn't catch him.

The first few weeks he was getting further away from home BUT now he's like halfway back and actually pretty close to home... he just won't f*cking sit still or come to anyone.

It's good to know he's alive but this is really pissing me off now.

Aaaaaand some of the "helpful" people on one of the Lost Pets FB pages started telling my wife "He probably ran away because he hates you." Like okay, legit, my wife is honestly a pretty big asshole, but that's some f*cked up sh*t to say to someone, Especially since I'd assume most of those people on those pages must have dealt with this before. Between that and the "I have your dog, bring $___ or I'll kill him" people, this experience has done a whole lot to reinforce my firm belief that people, in fact, ain't sh*t.

My day absolutely sucked for a million other reasons but that was some bullsh*t.

Glad it sounds like he's still thriving, if a little surprising given that it's December, but sorry to hear they came so close but couldn't get hold of him.

That just seems so odd for a dog to totally ignore a familiar voice like that. Any reaction to sound at all? Hope something hasn't happened that affected his hearing or made him distorted or anything like that...

If not treats, is there a favorite noise making toy he might react to? Or, if they find him again, maybe try sitting down, if still within view of him, so its less intimating and see if he'll come over? I know sitting (or laying) down in the yard was one of the only tricks of getting hold of the dog we had years ago on the occasion he slipped out of the house and thought it was great fun to avoid capture.

Hope you guys get hold of him soon. Fingers crossed that he's home for Christmas!

Eh, I'll be dead by then, probably. Doesn't matter.

Noo... Hope you feel better and differently by then.



Grind... Jeep back in the shop Friday. To re-fix a seal or whatever. Not good timing with work, but at least they're a decent place that will give me a loaner and the redo won't cost me anything.

As much as I wasn't thrilled about the cold rainy weather yesterday, at the very least its what alerted me to a leak. ...after seeing a rainbow trail like a string of beads left by my vehicle through a parking lot.


edit: Oh.. and I really kind of despise that demeaning Bath Fitter ad.

"Housekeeping!"
"Yes, Mother?"

So, been taking antibiotics because one of my cats bit my finger a couple days ago.


And I made the mistake of not eating (or taking probiotics) with them. So now my gut's a mess and I feel terrible.

Wouldn't the antibiotic also just kill off the probiotic microbes if taken at the same time?


Personally, Activia yogurt has my vote. Never been much of a yogurt person, but it recently helped last month after having a somewhat unsettled gut for a couple of weeks.

Speaking of unsettled guts.... Mine has been giving me some issues lately. Mostly in the sense of- um, lots of "odoriferous emanations", pretty much every day, and mild nausea early in the day if my stomach goes empty too long. I'm starting to suspect acid reflux and/or IBS. Probably both. This was never an issue until recently, and as far as I can tell, the only thing that has changed is that the sharks have become less predictable, and my lubido has taken a nosedive to the basement in recent months. The two problems- tummy and "shark week" might be related, but I have no idea what to do about either.

Er, yeah, that was a big a reason why I thought to try the yogurt, theorizing that since bacteria in the gut are largely responsible for that and if something had changed but my diet hadn't, then maybe something had gone a bit off with the good bacteria? (Within a day it, along with a gummy probiotic -- with bacillus coagulans that supposedly can survive the stomach better than many other good bacteria -- did help. I never really bought into the probiotic stuff, but it may have convinced me a little bit.)

I've had many times in the past where "shark week" had made the gut kind of off, sometimes a Pepto Bismol-level of off, and I guess that's probably pretty common that the associated hormones can throw it for a loop.

May just be a coincidence, but for me this unsettled gut issue did show up right around/after "shark week" had finally returned after a bit of a (I think stress related) hiatus, and had a rough restart. So maybe wonky hormone pattern = wonky body chemistry that can throw things off? Including the helpful bacteria?

No nausea in my case, but an uncomfortable bloating feeling for weeks and feeling full rather quickly, esp after drinking water, and I've pretty much never gotten bloating (maybe once or twice in my whole life) with "shark week," so to be honest I was kind of freaking out (and probably not helping it if it was stress related) reading about symptoms of cancer that sounded like this, unsure if that bloated sensation was a slow gut or related to the monthly friend who'd bailed out on me for a bit, or something worse... It did seem to go away after it returned, thank goodness, but it was weird!

Man, the above posts remind me that as sh*tty as I have it sometimes, sh*t's a lot worse for people who don't/can't smoke pot. I'unno how y'all function, sincerely.

It's like Hulk Hogan always said: "A day without smoking pot is like a day without sunshine."

Actually, having met the man, it's probably more like, "Brother, a day without smoking pot, brother, is like a day without sunshine, brother."

But yeah, tough break, hepcats. Some people I know swear by CBD for that kinda thing.

I function juuust fine, thank you, lol. I mean, my coping strategy has always been along the lines of "find nice violent game, kill things for a couple of hours, or plow my car into everything on the road, and have a nice hot bath and a cocktail." Not neccessarily in that order. Alcohol does WONDERS for me when I'm not feeling good.
