Boo-boos and Owies

Post by taerKitty on Fri 8 Nov 2013 - 10:40

All the threads in this sub-forum thus far have been of great magnitude, of events that change the lives of our peers, fellow fans, and, most of all, friends.

I'm hoping this will be like the What are You Happy About Right Now? thread, but in the opposite direction.

We all have little downers: failed tests, bad days at work, or other stuff that just dims our lives a small amount.  For me, my boo-boos aren't worth their own thread because they're nowhere in the same galaxy as these other threads. 

However, you are all my friends.  Often, just seeing you on chat, just getting the notification that you posted something new, those small things brighten my day.  In this harried pressure-cooker of a world, I treasure you.

I'm sure I'm not the only one.  Here's a thread for us to just vent about our crummy bosses, our ungrateful students, our idiot coworkers, and our frail bodies.  Please feel free to post your frustrations, your whinges, and your pains.

We're all friends here.

===

That interminable preface aside, I'm off work with a cold for yet another day.  I had to leave home early on Tuesday because I was feeling crummy, took Wednesday off, dragged my sorry butt back to work yesterday, and woke up at 03:30 with aches, a mild fever and some other symptoms that are not shared in polite companies.

The good news: I'll be able to watch some more anime.  I think I'll try to get another chunk out of Legend of the Galactic Heroes.

The bad news: I've tried writing when I've been sick in times past, and it doesn't work.  My wife will interrupt me every 30 minutes to tell me to stop working (even if it's not job-work, she can tell when I'm concentrating), and my mind has already stopped working to some degree, so writing will be an exercise in frustration in this condition..

Well, the typical Chinese response to a cold is a nice, piping hot bowl of rice porridge, seasoned with just a hint of soy sauce and some finely chopped green onions. Feel better soon!

Now I've caught some kind of bug. Wasn't feeling great last night, as I said on chat, but woke up feeling worse and subsequently made two mad dashes for the bathroom to empty my stomach.

This'll be a fun day. Yuck!

Ooohh. 

The best part about vomiting is how there's no traditional cures for it that'll make you feel better. With normal colds and stuff, at least something like lemon tea will make you feel mildly less crummy. Good luck, man.

Still crapola, but trying to write.  It's like being constipated - it comes out, but only after a lot of groaning and straining.

(And it might stink.)

That's... an interesting comparison. *chuckles*

I ripped a fingernail chucking grenades today. I don't know how I kept injuring my middle finger on my left hand, but it's shredded, all up and down, to include the bleeding nail.

Grenades!

Anyway, got home from school. Its the first day after being sick and I have a mountain of make-ups and reading to do...

Which sucks.

And I think may have some kind of upper respiratory infection based on how I'm feeling, coughing and generally how that area feels. Nothing confirmed, but seems like a likely problem.

It's midnight; I'm on a conference call because something went bang in some data-center somewhere; we've been at this for 2+ hours and we still have no estimated time-to-restoration; and I have to run an 08:00 meeting tomorrow morning.

So a few nights ago, I had just finished seeing 'Frozen' and was waiting at the bus stop for my ride home. It was probably around 20ºF or less, so I definitely was toughing it out until the bus got to my stop. Problem was, when the bus finally came, it came charging towards my stop... and right past to the next stop, and the driver dropped someone off and then drove away even though I was screaming and yelling for him to wait quite audibly.

When I eventually did get home, my frustrations and 'Let It Go' being stuck in my head lead to this (contains some language):

Spoiler:
<<"Need A Car" (to the tune of Frozen's "Let It Go")

My breath is white at the bus stop tonight,
It's cold enough to be seen.
Just down the road is my bus home, with its message to "Go Green".
Start shouting frantically when the bus rolls right on by.
Couldn't flag it down, heaven knows I tried.

Okay that's it, no more of this;
Fuck you, SEPTA, 'cause now I'm really pissed!
Public Transport
just ain't for me,
When it's this shittyyyyy!

Need a car! Need a car!
No more waiting anymore!
Need a car! Need a car!
Just get in and slam the door!

I don't care, what those hippies say! 
Turn the engine on!
The bus is for masochists, anyway!

It's funny how a license, which you need to drive a car,
opens more of the world to you, and lets you get so far!

I'm so tired of 
gum on my shoe, 
and all the sketchy people 
I ride with, too!
I'll check CraigsList, and just maybe, there's a car for me!

Need a car! Need a car! 
Perhaps a Golf GTI~I? 
Need a car! Need a car! 
SEPTA makes me want to cry!

I won't stand
waiting for the bus all day, 
Turn the engine on...

Horsepower surges through the wheels into the ground,
A smile grows on my face as I keep on driving around,
Change up one gear, floor it, and now I'm going fast,
Toss out this token pack;
This Transpass is my last!

Need a car! Need a car! 
So I can drive from dusk 'til dawn! 
Need a car! Need a car! 
To do donuts on my lawn!

Here I sit,
In my car today,
Turn the engine on,
The bus is for masochists anyway...>>

Sorry for the double-tap, but wanted to share.

I just replaced a pretty kick-butt router with a crappy one.  The reason is simple: this one is ACLed (Access Control List) to an amazing degree.  Too bad the radio on it sucks, and it doesn't have a coax plug for an antenna.

it's a SkyDog router, and it allows me to create user profiles, assigned them to machines, and set limits based on bandwidth, sites, and hours.  My kidlet has let her grades slip, and with the tuition costs at her college, we can't allow that.

So, it's a triple boo-boo:

1. She's almost going to get bounced from her program at college.

2. I have to put up with a crappy $150 router (and have to spend even more for a signal booster).

3. IT'S NOT OUR FREAKING JOB TO POLICE HER INTERNET USAGE AT HER AGE!

So they sent me home from school today. Something about a fever and a migraine...

They seem to be correct.  Yuck!

Driving in the rain during rush hour is one of the most terrifying experiences I have had.

This was only my second time driving.

Try ice on a freeway going 60 in a Jeep Liberty. Fishtailing bad at that speed is not fun, but rain you get use to. Take it slow if you need to.

Anyways...Hey You're alive! Good! You'll be driving like Takumi from Initial D in no time. Very Happy

Keep safe, both of you!

As for me, it's that mad rush for tax documents.  And, to make it more fun, I have to get some of them from Hong Kong SAR because of some really complicated familial property transfers.

I'm about to tear my hair out.

Still sucks.  As for me, I have hives, probably from stress.  They itch.  A lot.

This is going to sound awful: but part of me couldn't help but chuckle at you fulfilling the stereotype  sweat 

In seriousness though, hope it all heals up soon. Sprains suck, and with a bite doubly so.

in 18 years I have only been bitten 3 times, once on each buttock and the last one on my leg, hopefully that will be it for awhile
