I mean, you refuse to accept the inherent wickedness of spiders. One could be forgiven for making assumptions!
lol Well mostly I always just liked the word Indigo and the bluer shades of it, plus the whole being born on Earth Day thing so that's always been a thing... so there you go.

Made that name up probably around 2004. Though in my youth I tried to be original and leave a letter out, which I kind of wish I kept in, but... eh.

If you really wanted to know.

But Hippie, or rather spelled Hippy, was my dad's work nickname based on our last name, and I once had a teacher calling me that as well, soooo....

And you'll either accept the cuteness of at least the little jumping spiders most people like or I'll... no, never mind, I can't submit a little fuzzy thing to being eaten. So you get away this time.

It is a very nice and memorable name.

Even with the early-2000s "purposeful misspellingz are kewl" bit. That was going around a lot, so all's forgiven. THIS time.

Your posts occasionally remind me of the girl in the group of 20 somethings who never hooked up with the hot guy so she's as passive aggressive as possible with him. Like that girl that is maybe a little fat or short or something and sees a bigger guy in the group so sort of does that short-fat-girl thing where she'll only speak to him in short bursts while sort of looking away - but only ever looking directly at them when they have an opportunity to have something poignantly ****** to say. And in fact is projecting her own weird **** onto the guy who really didn't too much wrong.

Just two illustrated perspective examples as to why I had that sort of biased reaction. That's why. But I could've been confusing your name with any other poster here that has an avatar that resembles yours I suppose too, so there's that.

I mean... you asked. Basically you've given me cause in the past to think that you are a terse-replying, pansy, hater. Basically you yield juuusst enough terse prick level responses to normalized conversation that now I make assumptions about you. I'll probably continue to do that too given the "and why is that" response amidst no other input.

Oh God man I'm sorry to hear that. I wouldn't wish that **** on anyone. Renal failure is.... I dunno it's scary for anyone that has an idea even if only remotely of how that works. I've only had a few life experiences with people in ER's and lost family and so on where that stuff comes up.

I'm sure it sucks to be aware of, or have to be aware of body parts that otherwise are just supposed to work without you ever knowing. I've had my own experiences where I've learned to describe stuff to Doctors like that when they ask for a pain scale. It doesn't have to hurt, it's enough to know that I'm aware of this body part that otherwise should just be there functioning without my awareness of it.

WAIT! I DID NOT MEAN TO IMPLY that I had non-AC Fatty Liver Disease! I don't... I just had the majority of my intestines taken out at 14, so... doc said IF I eat fruit it COULD lead to liver problems. BUT YES, I do enjoy eating mostly clean. There's also times like now, when it goes from SUMMER to FALL where I eat really FUN things like PIZZA, Chocolate Cake, Fried Potato Chip Sandwiches, Brownies, homemade fudge, cookies etc. But yeah, being 35 and being what I've been through... I cant afford to eat bad very often.

Oh, wow, well do be entirely honest about the assumptions you make about me (and others) based on text. Mr. guy who often comes across as aggressive pseudo intellectual, so not much room to talk. Been biting my lip trying not to say it, but there you go.

There are several aggressive pseudo intellectuals here which flies in the face of a lot of this forums logic, doesn't it? We expound on politics, lifestyle and science and everyone cites "feelings" or "people they know" or "personal experience" over fact, data, research and evidence.

That's just an observation I've definitely seen more than once.

As far as the last thing I ate, rice and beans in a homemade cheese sauce and a side of tortilla chips.

No, they aren't cough drops, zinc is used for trying to fend off viruses, not sooth a throat. Does it really work, I have no idea, maybe it has helped (was never sick last winter at all) or might just be wishful thinking and I'm wasting money, but has been my winter post-work/public space habit for a few years. This year it has been an all year thing though.

Good to know my existential life crisis from you not saying cough drops meant nothing to you (even if they aren't cough drops).

Would a "cough drop" post been so bad?

I'm just messing with ya lol.... or am I?

lol Only if you don't like the menthol ones maybe.


Blue Diamond Bold Sriracha Almonds. Love them, but rarely get them unless I find them on sale. Really wish they'd put them in the bigger bag, not just the little can, like some of the other flavors! (Way too tempted to eat the rest of that can...)

Another huge Turkey day dinner last night, and rn, a sausage mcmuffin on a hamburger bun(because I don't care much for the muffins as they are always too dry and overcooked).

Well, we spent last night watching the first 2 TMNT movies from the 90's. Hard for me to watch those without a few pies on hand!
