As of today, I now only have basic cable. It’s an absolutely stupid thing to be bummed about but I am nonetheless. It’s a real cherry on top of a banner week that saw me have a serious fall walking into work onto cement, scraping up my hand and nearly breaking a knee cap, finding out my dad will need to have some very invasive surgery on Monday and is currently in the hospital, and the check engine light came on in my car and found out that it’s problem isn’t crucial but will likely cost me more than $1,000 to fix sooner rather than later.
At least I saw Ghostbusters on the big screen tonight and The Goonies on Wednesday night with a friend who hadn’t seen either and it was a delight to watch her watch it for the first time. There’s at least that.
With his love of Game Of Thrones, Star Trek, and everything else the Internet holds dear, Parks And Recreation’s Ben Wyatt has become something of an icon for America’s nerderati. So it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Mayfair Games, the company that makes Settlers Of Catan, took the time t
So this happened.
While going in to see your doctor for some fairly extensive test results, don’t casually mention that you feel a bit more thirsty and have a tad bit of dry mouth since going on your medication because they will speed past a simple fix for these things and send you off for an even longer list of tests to confirm their blurted-out diagnosis of pre-diabetes which is statistically impossible based on the current test results sitting in front of them, the likes of which brought you into the office in the first place but you still leave without an answer to any of the actual questions those extensive test results were to answer.
All I wanted to know is if I should just start using that special mouthwash for a little bit or if they thought it was a temporary phenomenon. Now I have to waste a Saturday for a battery of blood work and tests to be told, for the nine hundredth time, that actually, in fact, my blood sugar runs low and am not in fact pre-diabetic and all of my vitals are well within the normal range.
tl;dr - basically, don’t be a fat person because no doctor will ever believe you’re not diabetic until they’ve taken 3 pints of blood just to be sure.

I want to go to this BADLY.
Too far….already going on an expensive trip this year…bummer.
In my opinion there is no “best part” of Twister, because it’s all solid fucking gold. I will still to this day randomly say “we crave sustenance” when I’m hungry.
It really is all solid fucking gold. I stand correctly corrected. I still sometimes say “I didn’t fold the maps” and then answer myself with “ROLL THE MAPS”.
Liana made some little chronic illness slogan graphics that she thought might be helpful for people who have such illnesses to have on standby for Facebook/ Tumblr/ etc„ or to print out to hand to people when explaining to yet another person is just too much!
More than 250 notes! :D Liana and I are both thrilled that these little graphics have struck a chord. <3
These are great!
