Yeesh, I bet it was.

My brother did end up breaking up with the girl he was going to marry. A lot of circumstances made them realize it wasn't really the best thing. So it looks like they'll be another family traditional ROOM SWAP when I graduate, potentially this winter. Since the room Kyle's presently in has the shelves meant for cats to climb on, built for when I was fostering kittens (and would very much like to get back to).

Ah yeah, bedroom arrangements. I guess this means the oldest of my kid brothers is loosing his room since he primarily lives with his mom since she lives closest to his school.

Unless my other brother now lives entirely in his little hut in the yard... there's a small "cabin" that was primarily used as a guest spot and storage, now it's his little "man cave" with isolated walls so he can play music on his custom sound system and even got a small bed inside there XD

I think a big plus to my potential rearrangement is that I have an armoire instead of a dresser, so that's one more thing for cats to sit on top of.

The question is of time when I foster again, since I'll be a graphic designer and probably won't be working from home quite yet.

Great Value equivalent of Doritos > Doritos

Anyone with me on that? Crunchier, more flavor. I find the real ones make me nauseous, these don't. Wonder why.

I've actually had that issue with most cereals.

Especially in high school. On Tuesdays. After taking my focus medication (which I've stopped doing entirely because it made me nauseous continuously at a certain point).

I'm not a big fan of it anyway. I'd rather not have cold food in immediately after waking up, much less stuff that's just flavored sugar and corn/wheat.

I've already lost six pounds, homiiiiiies. Thanks for all the advice before!

IIIIIII have never tried it. I will and get back to you, though. Great Value is Wal-Mart, right?

Well, they say that the first 10 pounds you lose is all water weight. But that's still pretty great.



And I have a movie, question, though I'm not sure if this is the place to go to. But it was brought up after watching a thing on "childhood trauma" from movies on Youtube, and there's one in particular that I don't know what it was, and I only ever saw one scene of it, and it will occasionally pop up and haunt me. But the thing that haunts me most is I have no idea what it was. Worse yet is that I must have been five or six, and witnessed this at my grandmother's house in Ohio. I believe my cousins were watching it.

Spoiler:
Basically what I recall seeing is two men having a fight in a fire station garage. One man strangles the other with a fire hose and leaves him on the ground (?) with the hose wrapped around his neck.
And then the part that horrified me: there's a dramatic transition to a skeleton with a snake around its neck, in the same way with the strangled man and fire hose. The surviving man looks at what he's done...and that was where I "noped" out.

Maybe it was a TV show...???


I swear, it's like Sophie Campbell's "animated elf movie" mystery, but I don't have any photographic evidence for it!

Congrats on losing the weight, Cure. That's great. Dad actually has started asking for water again so we've been giving it to him without the thickener in it because he hates that stuff with the water though we do still give it to him when we give him other drinks.

Probably not. I've been gone for quite awhile and even when I was here I rarely left the general sections. Thank you all the same!

I felt like I was prepared for it, but now I honestly don't think anything can truly prepare for how big of a change it is. Especially after the 6th month mark when they're awake enough to dictate every single minute of the day lol
