Life is a game we all ultimately lose

So I was trying to work in the bedroom today and dear Jack Lord, and Charlot too, Edward has given me a fucking migraine. Not a vestibular migraine, a MIGRAINE. Nary a computer question asked either! Two phone calls and I was done. If only I had some midrin. That's what i had in high school when I had migraines. That stuff was awesome. After 5 pills you'd feel like you were floating. Yes, you could take up to five and yes, I remember the dosage. Two at onset, then 1 every 30 minutes up to a total of 5 total if needed. He calls me again I'm just gonna answer the phone and scream at the top of my lungs. I.am.not.joking.

Calgon take me far far away. Wait, I have no calgon. Shit, I'm stuck here. So I figured I'd blog [duh], perhaps start to go thru some pix/video on my memory card that really needs to emptied, or I'll read. I most certainly will not be editing phone calls with Edward clips today!

Depressing thought occurred to me the other evening, most of the music I was listening to, they were dead. FUCK! Bowie, Prince, STP, Alice in Chains [no, it's not AIC without Layne], Queen [Freddie IS Queen], George Michael, Amy, Nirvana and FUCK! DEPRESSING! I mean, I listen to stuff where people have passed but they were older. And I'm still pissed at Marvin Gaye's father for murdering him!

I know some of them are from the 1990s but time is something that shifts for me, it seems. Some things seem like they happened yesterday, instead of 30+ years ago. Time loops back and sometimes you're on the loop and get transported. Why shouldn't time be fluid? It's man made as it is already. No matter the concept of time, we all have an expiration date for this existence. Then? Well, that's the next great adventure.

I have another NDE and end up at a concert by someone I like, instead of Janice Joplin, I'm STAYING! I'd never leave a Prince or Bowie concert. Nope. There I would remain! I hope I die before Edward. Yes, yes he is older than me. We know my field of fucks has a severe drought right now.

Listening to George Michael today. Jenny Bigwood and I would blast Edge of Heaven from a boom box to annoy neighbors [nope, I really haven't changed, think I'll blast that out the window on a warm day this year. I'll announce beforehand "FOR JENNY!!!"]. One time we rented the VHS with all of WHAM!'s videos on it and we played Club Tropicana over and over. George looked really awesome in that video. Remember this was the 80s so cheesiness was in!

No twitter withdrawals today. Whew! Think that's passed! If not, well, I'll continue to work thru it.

Got a few bags of stuff thrown out from the bedroom today and there's a couple boxes (empty) I can haul down and flatten to put in the trash. Windsor thought it'd be fun earlier to try to kill me on the stairs. That little fuck.

Found a black [or really dark purple] crushed velvet dress today. No, I have no idea. No, I didn't try it on. No, I did not buy it.

From 1998. Damn he covers this very well!



From 2011. So true what he says about Amy. And it became true of him too.



Should be life. Life is a losing game.

monday morning musings....

so i got an early birthday present...more details here if you're interested...i had the option of a ninja but i saw this and this had the food processor attachment so this was my choice....

P3246490

tried it yesterday....tossed in some vanilla soy milk, frozen blueberries, and a banana....delicious!!! pix taken with cell phone so the quality sucks...or the cell phone operator sucks...

20170326_153513

the lid on the drinking cup though, even though i put it on, apparently it forms a cement like bond because it took me at least 5 minutes to get it off to put it in the sink when i finished my ground up smurf drink....my whole right arm hurt.....today it's even worse...i think i pinched the nerve i had pinched before by my shoulder blade....i was ready to wander the neighborhood to ask someone to get the lid off...yes, carnival music was playing...no, shan't use that cup to drink from again!! i'll use the blending cup, but will pour the drink into another drinking bottle cuz FUCK!!!! i probably used all the calories i just got trying to get that lid off! oh and when i went to the doctor last week, i lost the 4# i had gained :( back to 100#....dammit!

today i think i'll try the food processor part and slice some potatoes and make scalloped potatoes....

will be taking muscle relaxers today, 3 times as prescribed, to hopefully assist my arm....since i didn't do much yesterday, i'm gonna do stuff today---arm be damned!! the bedroom is on the agenda again....and i have dishes to do, as i didn't do them yesterday after the lid debacle....

was wrong in my commentary, SHE left, not him....good for her!



rewatched season 20 of south park yesterday....gosh i didn't leave at least 3 paragraphs on twitter as to why i was leaving only DM'd a few people....so was it twittercide or twitterhomicide? no one can find me to ask me cuz where am @? if you watch south park that'll make sense....i'm doomed to sit in a park...oh dear! somehow i think that's just fine....fine, just fine....

quick this & that...

...then getting back to my current book...

whilst working in my bedroom i've found some things i forgot i had....such as this t-shirt someone gave me...and yes, yes i will blog about you....if i feel like it....or a situation warrants it....

20170325_152818

some things i was aware i had, but not the quantity of...i knew i had one of these left, as i gave one to a hood kid years ago as he was obsessed with the titanic....i have 5 of them....five...fucking five titanic kits...i cannot recall procuring these treasure hunting--and i remember my hunts, usually to THE STREET i got things...these were not gotten via treasure hunting....i have no idea where they came from...

20170325_142528

i found this envelope....empty....no idea what was in it or who it was from....

20170325_142440

more bedroom fun tomorrow and i have a few more pix too....one item i wanna take a pix with my camera instead of my cell phone....

so i've had what we assumed was a rash on my face, as it was right where i'd hold the phone...so all calls on speakphone, hydracortisone cream on it...nada....actually getting more of 'em....told her i was considering sandpaper cuz it's annoying looking....yes, she laughed....no itching, no burning....this is from my online visit notes: "...likely very early seborrheic keratosis (less likely actinic keratosis)-discussed need for SUNSCREEN all over sun exposed areas." she put SUNSCREEN in caps....

i said i'd put sunscreen on my face ONLY....she did say if it got bigger i could get it removed in the office....but it wasn't big enough for her to remove yet....

one of the 'quirks' of cell phone pix is i can never get them going the right direction, sometimes, when i post 'em...i tried to turn it but it refused, so fine, fuck you....but yeah, there's my annoying keratosis....the bigger one is darker in real life and the rest, are here on miss tia's face...i am a cell phone phototard....

20170326_083538

i also have, drumroll....a rib cage dysfunction!!! in a new place! rib 8 or 9 on my right side....she could feel it was pushed back...and no, i can't do anything about it....have to wait for it to go home on it's own....

and now it's back to my book...tomorrow perhaps i'll discuss how i injured myself with my new toy!

Twitter detox

I will admit to having some twitter withdrawal. I had no such thing when I quit facebook. I guess since I had started to cut back on time there first and hadn't done that with twitter. Twitter archive is a fail. It's wholly unreadable. Yes, I did unzip it. Guess they figure 'fuck you' if you request your archive? Whatever. 9 years, poof!!

Was working in my bedroom yesterday and unearthed some treasures I forgot I had and some things that made me go 'dafuq?!' Yes, I've been taking photos.

Have more to blog about, but shall wait til later, including schadenfreude. Going to go back to the bedroom while clothes are washing before I start my bath. Who knows what will be found next!! It's like a treasure hunt, but there's no treasure of monetary value.

Bye twitter!!

30 days from today my twitter will be permanently deleted. Thought about it for months. Done. Could go more into it, but meh. Done.

That is all for now.
I really need to have a youtube upload spree from my memory card, which is LOADED with pix and some vids. I recorded a bit of a phone call with Edward today. Think about this upcoming gem:

He was surprised when he selected all the emails in his yahoo inbox that all were then deleted when he hit delete. Yes, I laughed.

Now for bedtime critter care and having to take cell phone with me, cuz there might be raccoons out there!!! I do not need to deal with Pan and a raccoon or a mama raccoon again! Been there, done that. Same with a possum.

Spring RACCOONS?!

Monday night at bedtime, let the dogs out, duh, and both CHARGE!!! to the mulberry tree. Of course I didn't have my cell phone on me, so therefore no flashlight and had to run upstairs to get it. I saw no eyes reflecting back to me up in the tree but both dogs were at the base of the tree looking up. I had no doubt SOMETHING was up there and assumed it was a possum.

Last night when I let them out, I had my phone on me and both CHARGED!!! to a locust tree and I heard little claws scampering up and then from the neighbor's garage light I saw the silhouette of two toddler raccoons. DAFUQ?! It's March 21! They scampered ALL the way to the very very top of the locust tree, so I don't think they've been out much and/or had much training from their mom yet, as going that high is totally unnecessary and is sort of dangerous as it was windy. Fortunately Pan could not find mom in the yard, though she made a thorough search while Poli was on sentry duty at the bottom of the locust tree hopping around "I got something to do! I got something to do! Coach put me in!"

Fucking great, now I gotta deal with raccoons already. I suppose the Joyce Birr Dayton Place Habitat is their 'home', as raccoons have been living in her garage for years now. She so kindly puts straw in there for them and the garage is filled with years of straw and raccoon shit. And the city does jack shit about it because ??? Who the fuck knows why. But gee, somewhere I have imaginary tall grass in my fenced in yard. That shit happens again, the department head is coming out and we're going to walk the neighborhood as I explain unequal enforcement and yes, Joyce's will be the highlight. She has real tall grass, the food out 24/7, dead car rotting in driveway, aforementioned garage, raccoon shit covered awning---it use to be white but now is basically black with so much raccoon shit, and that's okay because ???? I'm not the only person around here with raccoon damage, as many on Dayton Place have it too. We've ALL complained about this for years, actually there's 20+ years of the SAME COMPLAINTS against her. Clue phone?? Not being answered by anyone.

Have lots of things to do around the house and not much motivation. Ugh. Did get a few things done yesterday. Will try to do better today. Have a doctor's appointment tomorrow. The sharp pain isn't as sharp but I'm going anyway, cuz I think it was/is a rib cage malfunction. Yes, a different one than the one last week. This one is on my right side. Still hurts, but not as sharp.

Panacea is having her high maintenance bitch skin issues. She's on yeast pills and pred, plus ear drops and neurotin for her arthritis. Yes, the med that made Eddie hallucinate and suicidal. Apparently it doesn't have that side effect in dogs. She has limited arthritis med options due to being on pred. Her arthritis isn't that bad, but she a little difficulty getting up in the car seat.

Minnow should be getting his dental probably next month. Damn cat. Well at least they're with me and not Tammy, cuz they get medical assistance. Mind you, they wouldn't purposely harm them, but going to the vet wouldn't be a priority. Like when Oreo was theirs and was hit by a car. Oreo survived without medical assistance. Yes, I was pissed about that then. Ah, but but cigarettes! SMDH

Alright, best go start my day. Clothes should be done in the washer and I can start my bath, gotta feed the dogs, do dishes, change a cat box, then work in the bedroom. I have cat food bags as trash bags. I always save cat and dog food bags when empty. They make the best trash bags---plus it's bonus usage!!! Save the cat litter bags too! All those bags are sturdy!!

First Day of Spring...

...vintage postcard from 1912.


1912daffodilgirl

Also Panacea's and Poliahu's anniversary. Got both on March 20, but Poli one year later than Pan. They shall get extra treats.

Rain is expected today and there is a 'special weather statement' that we might get soft hail [is that an oxymoron?] in the midst of thunderstorm due to cold air pockets. Um, okie doke then!

Projectile weather bust....

MORE Skittles' projectile vomit. FFS! She's on a roll today!! I was sitting here writing notes on things I have to do, etc and glurp glurp DO NOT DO IT THERE DAMMIT glurp moving to the left glurp SPLAT!!!!!!!!!!! Dammit Skittles!! Dafuq is your malfunction today? Glurp glurp glurp SPLAT!!!!!!!!!!!

So no white out conditions earlier, of course not; BUT now we have a severe weather warning about a 'squall' [I've lived in Ohio over half my life now and I will never EVER get use to the word 'squall'] that is intense and could cause white out conditions. The earlier statement didn't call it a 'squall', who the fuck calls snow a SQUALL?!?!? What is their malfunction??

It is snowing. Things are being nicely coated and it looks pretty. It is regularly SNOW not a damn 'squall'. If I EVER start using the word 'squall', hit me with the sledgehammer please. Seriously. If I ever want a flu shot, check me into the psych ward. Same as if I ever believe in a deity.

SDR mentioned in an email today something about a "normal life". What the hell is that?? Sounds interesting. And Skittles is starting to glurp again.

That reminds me, I need to go check dinner. I'm losing my appetite.

Oooo Special Weather Statement

Special Weather Statement
Special Weather Statement in effect until 3:30 PM EDT. Source: U.S. National Weather Service

...AN AREA OF HEAVY SNOW WILL AFFECT RICHLAND...OTTAWA...ERIE...
EASTERN SENECA...MEDINA...SOUTHWESTERN LAKE...SANDUSKY...NORTHEASTERN
CRAWFORD...WAYNE...HOLMES...HURON...MAHONING...PORTAGE...SOUTHWESTERN
TRUMBULL...GEAUGA...CUYAHOGA...ASHLAND...STARK...SUMMIT...

At 212 PM EDT, a band of heavy snow was moving across northern Ohio.
This area of heavy snow is moving east 25 to 30 mph. The snow band
is quickly producing an inch or two of accumulation across the
region.

Locations impacted include...
Cleveland, Akron, Canton, Youngstown, Lorain, Mansfield, Medina,
Wooster, Sandusky, Ashland, Norwalk, Fremont, and Ravenna.

Visibilities will drop quickly to less than a half of a mile in this
area of heavy snow.

Conditions can deteriorate rapidly in winter weather situations. Be
prepared for snow or ice covered roads. Slow down and allow extra
time when traveling.


I'll take my camera down with me to the kitchen and look out the back door on and off to see if we have a white out. No, I can directly see outside from my kitchen. My kitchen window has lace patterned contact paper, plus plastic over it, and my back door has plastic over the screen door. Pantry door stays shut, plus window has plastic over it. Can see a bit thru the plastic in the dining room but might as well walk onto back porch or look out side door.

Projectile thoughts....

Nothing like trying to reply to something and Skittles goes on a projectile vomiting spree. Once, twice, three times is 'normal'. Rather breaks up your concentration. Damn cat. But that's 'normal' for her.

I keep thinking about something, which probably isn't good nor healthy. The main thought is: what was the purpose/reason for me to encounter another individual like this? They're not the type who would 'learn' anything, so the lesson would be on me. So??? The only answer I keep getting is that I should write about them, as I've done for others; but that honestly would do no good in the long run. Well, I suppose it would add to their already extensive google returns.

I know, if you don't know who/what I'm talking about, that is a befuddling statement. SDR, what do you think?

Ah, starting to snow. They say perhaps an inch, then rain Sunday.

No banana cake yesterday. Need to go do dishes and make that today. Need to work on a few things about the house too. Perhaps I can have an epiphany while doing dishes about what I'm thinking of.

Sometimes I wish I didn't have a conscience. Though, I see those without one and no, that's fine. Perhaps if mine wasn't so overactive? I tend to think too much to begin with, then add an ethical dilemma and SCRAMBLED BRAINS!

Rib cage bank

Who can get a rib cage dysfunction walking up their steps? Me. I wasn't even carrying anything. No, it makes zero sense; but when I was almost to the landing, RIB CAGE DYSFUNCTION!!! At least it's the one in my arm pit area and I can stretch my arm over my head to help it go back to it's home and it eases the pain too. Haven't been coughing, nor sneezing. Sitting with back against chair back. No fucking clue. So I guess that's just par for my course.

Old bank account is now CLOSED!!! YES!!!!! My new bank account is a little buggered. No ATM card, no checks yet. I called today and whereas I had been told the ATM card had been sent, no, no it was not sent. No, no checks have been ordered. Um?? I'd swear I was talking to an elderly Edward, though I felt a sense of compassion for this man's confusion. Thinking about it now though, I can also feel a sense of empathy for this man's supervisor! It came down to I'd have to talk to one particular person who wasn't in today. That's fine, I have their email, I'll send them one so the message is there.

For the first time since I started using gmail accounts, something went to spam. It was the auto reply, out of office, for this person. I think I look at the spam folder once a month and nothing is ever there. I looked today around 6pm and there was the auto reply with the phone # for a person who COULD help, from 8-5. Dammit!! If I get up early tomorrow I might just call that person, as I have no doubt the person who was off a week would have things to go through and it might be a day or two or three before they get back to me.

I DID make bread today!! My thermometer decided to stop working, so I had no idea the water temperature. Turned out okay though. Since my rib cage dysfunction had just happened before I started the bread [I use the bread machine on dough, then roll it out, rise, then bake], I did NOT make tofu ricotta. Didn't want to stand too much. I guess that means I'll have to make bread AGAIN! Oh dear! No clue about how to ghetto rig a thermometer. I'll figure something out.

Banana cake definitely has to be made tomorrow, as I have very ripe bananas. Banana cake with chocolate frosting. What's with all these recipes for banana cake and cream cheese frosting? CHOCOLATE!!!! Thankyouverymuch. I'll try banana pudding another time I get bananas.

Need to stop typing and stretch my arm. Actually if I keep my left arm over my head it doesn't hurt at all. My 'normal' is not normal.

I'll try again tomorrow.

They upped our inches!

Now they say in their warning that we might get up to 7" overnight.

I actually went out and dealt with the back porch roof a bit a few hours ago. An ice dam was forming. I also thought it would probably be double the work for me to explain to Edward how to clear the snow, then where to put the calcium chloride. That shit ain't cheap and a little goes a long way. I also keep the bag on the back porch, sealed and covered, to protect it from moisture.

That fucking 1.5 hour phone call today. JFC. I'm more mad at myself for staying on that long! I converted the file to a MP3 to try to figure where to edit it. I admit I was cracking up listening to the first 10 minutes. 'When I go here it does this. No wait, it worked okay that time.' Also within the first 10 minutes I do indeed threaten to come over with the sledgehammer. And the long ass PAUSES. Everything is also an "icon". Open a new tab +, that's an icon. Bookmark bar shortcuts [technically those are icons] icon. He STILL had problems with the START BUTTON!!! "The boxed button?"

I think the camera was OFF at the point towards the end, while I was in the tub--it was on for a bit there--when I told him to go his desktop and he asks, "How do I get to that? What is that?"

For reasons I have no clue for:

There is no system restore point on his computer. That's not HIS fault. There should be a system restore point from updates. No, I wasn't going to figure that out but it might have solved the problem today.

The mousepad doesn't work right in firefox. ONLY in firefox. Ah, I can hear some now saying 'Did he try Chrome?' NO! That would entail walking him thru downloading that, then immediately he'd want his stuff from firefox, and wouldn't understand it's for testing purposes only. Yes, we updated firefox and also flash. Checked the mousepad settings too. And of course tried turning it off and on again.

He actually said he'd bring it over to me to fix. Uh, I've only said I wouldn't touch that thing again a million times. He brings it over, HAMMER TIME!!! I will not learn his version of windows. Then he mentioned getting a new one with his tax return. I will type up a statement, get it notarized, that I AM NOT TECH SUPPORT FOR IT!!! For any of it. NOTHING. Yes, I know Windows 10, quite well. Actually I have it sort of looking like XP. Not teaching him Windows 10 nor setting it up for him [which is what he would want]. Hell, he still has problems with facebook!! Yet somehow started a twitter on his own.

SMDH. No, no ricotta made in advance today, nor actually anything made. Dishes are done though, so I've got what I need for bread making. I wish my blender hadn't upped and died on me, it would be really handy to have. My little ninja chopper will suffice, just gotta do smaller quantities.

I'll try again tomorrow!

Now we have a WARNING!

1253 PM EDT Tue Mar 14 2017

...WINTER STORM WARNING IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM EDT WEDNESDAY...

The National Weather Service in Cleveland has issued a Winter
Storm Warning for heavy snow which is in effect until 8 PM EDT
Wednesday. The Winter Weather Advisory is no longer in effect.

* Accumulations/Timing...1 to 3 inches of additional snow through
early this evening with an additional 2 to locally 5 inches of
snow tonight into Wednesday. The heaviest snow will be across
the northernmost portions of the counties and will vary
depending on where lake effect bands are most persistent.

* Impacts...Difficult driving conditions with reduced visibility
and snow covered roads.

* Winds...Northwest 10 to 20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph

/cut paste

Oh dear, should I clear off my car and rush to the store to buy water, bread, and TP? Wait, I have water from the tap, a loaf of bread and yeast to make bread, and enough TP for the year. Alrightie then. Critters have rations, as they always have them. So we're set. Eddie's on board to salt the gutter tomorrow and back porch, so I'm set there too!!

Crow family just few to the clock out tree. I'm assuming they're a family because it was 3 of them and usually families will stick together during the day. The chirruns stay with the parents for a few years, and help with their younger siblings, before they find their mate. Even then, the family bond remains.

No squirrel sightings yet. I see one I'll go give them a PB sandwich. Yes, I have several prepared.

Snow/Phone call with Edward....

...was going to get in tub, around 11. Grinch ring tone of doom. Got off phone around 12:30. I actually turned my camera on, to ghetto record. I'll have to edit some of it and you can hear it for yourselves!!

The only 'plus' from that is Eddie will salt my gutter tomorrow if needed.

No massive snow this morning. It's getting colder out though and the wind is picking up a bit. Still sort of spitting snow.

Now it's 1pm and far too late to make bread. Dammit!! Will forage for lunch, then fiddle in kitchen. Might make my tofu ricotta today, though I'm not sure how much I'll need for a 8x8 pan of lasagna. Want to use leftover tofu and try a banana pudding recipe I found.

'Blizzard' Tuesday....

Pix from last night, yes I did my camera down. The light snow we were getting almost felt like soft sleet, if that makes sense.

Approaching snow sky color. No flash, no tomfoolery. Natural pix.

P3136263

This is how much snow we had then.

P3136262

Also had my cell with me, this was taken with that. Weird ass animal tracks across the driveway. Mr. google told me later they were possum tracks.

20170313_225217

Mail lady's foot prints. No more than a couple inches, right?

20170314_091945

A bench mark for snow levels.

20170314_092003

The back porch roof has snow on it, natch. But from this window the gutter looks 'open'! I did put calcium chloride ON the roof yesterday but I focused more on the gutter. I think I just open the window in here over the back porch and get some 'special salt' on the roof that way as I do NOT feel like climbing a ladder today!!

Real feel is 2 right now. And it's sort of spitting snow.

Ooooo, we have a SPECIAL WEATHER ALERT!! cut/paste

..AN AREA OF MODERATE TO HEAVY SNOW WILL AFFECT NORTHWESTERN
PORTAGE...GEAUGA... CUYAHOGA...MEDINA...LAKE...NORTHERN
ASHLAND...SUMMIT...NORTHERN WAYNE AND SOUTHEASTERN LORAIN COUNTIES...

At 915 AM EDT, an area of moderate to heavy snow was located along a
line extending from near Chardon to near Brunswick to near West
Salem. Movement was slow to the east at 15 mph. Snow will continue
to slowly move eastward and could bring a quick inch to inch and a
half of accumulation through 11 AM EDT to some areas. Winds in
excess of 30 mph are possible with this area of snow and
visibilities could be as low as a half mile in some locations.

Locations impacted include...
Cleveland, Akron, Medina, Wooster, Ashland, Painesville, Willowick,
Chardon, Fairport Harbor, Parma, Lakewood, Cuyahoga Falls, Euclid,
Mentor, Cleveland Heights, Strongsville, Brunswick, North Royalton,
Kent and Barberton.

/cut paste and here's are updated Advisory cut/paste

..WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM EDT
WEDNESDAY...

* Accumulations/Timing...1 to 3 inches of additional snow through
this afternoon with an additional 2 to 4 inches of snow this
evening into Wednesday as lake-effect snow develops. Locally
higher amounts will be possible where lake-effect snow bands
persist.

/cut paste Okay this involves math. Say we have 2 inches now. Add 1 to 3, then 2 to 4. WHY DO THEY MAKE US DO MATH?!?!?!? Okay, highest total is 9. The least they could do is give us the lowest/highest totals. Some of us went to Kent State!

Will take pix/video if we get that heavy snow before 11!
...well little past 5pm and not a flake yet, of course besides the one typing this. Now they say tomorrow we'll be getting lake effect snow and might end up with a total 10". I am debating pre-salting my back porch roof. Isn't that what people have to do? No? Really?!?! YES THAT STILL IRKS MY IRE!!! Don't fucking replace someone's back porch roof, totally gut and redo their pantry and FAIL to mention that ice dams will still form!!! As I've said, had I been told BEFORE discussions could have taken place re: putting the roof at a steeper pitch or even REMOVING the pantry! Fuck you J Russell. Seriously, FUCK YOU. Especially with my chimney leak from hell FIXED and it was what I thought all along!! Grrrrrr.......

I am thinking I should pre-salt though. Think I have a virus of some kind and am currently running a fever, so fucking great having to climb ladders to put out the back porch roof special snowflake salt [not rock salt]. I'll probably feel worse tomorrow. Okay, I'll go put on rain coat, plastic gloves, and pre-salt. It feels really cold today too.

Alright, 25 minutes later and I have pre-salted. Slammed my knee on the ladder when I had to move it, so wow, bonus! And no flakes yet. I want J Russell's tongues to burn with calcium chloride until they learn to communicate better!! I know, I'm so nice. HAH!

Okay, I'm gonna ice my knee. They are saying snow starting in 43 minutes. So around 6:32? We'll see if they are right.

Update 8:56pm: There is just the lightest coat of snow on roofs and cars. You can't even SEE it snowing, if it even is, at this point.

Update 9:25pm: You can see it snowing now; but it's a very light snow.

Update 10:40pm: Still light snow, but ground has a dusting now. The sky is getting brighter, approaching 'snow sky' shade--which is um, not quite sure how to describe that. It's obviously still dark out--duh--but it's brighter and snow skies are sometimes pink hued. Quite beautiful actually. Not there yet though. Might take some pix when I let the dogs out [yes, I let the dogs out, it was me]. Will take with cell phone, don't feel like hauling camera around at bedtime.

Typical...

...had to go up to Giant Eagle and then Klein's. Took my camera with me as I figured since I wasn't getting anything perishable, not to mention it'd be fine for like 10 minutes, I'd take some pix and videos of the North Hill Crow Crew at 'work' and the Chapel Hill Gull Group. There was a gathering of the Crow Crew by the dumpsters of Friendly's with the Gull Group trying to drive them off. Crow Crew stood firm, actually they were sitting. Anyway, I park at the end of the Giant Eagle parking lot, turn on my camera and get 'BATTERY EMPTY'. DAFUQ?!?! I got zero low battery warning last night when I was taking moon pictures!! Those 4 rechargeable batteries, once I find a Sharpie, are getting side eyes drawn on them. Phone camera is not good for distance. Tried to zoom, but I could see it was pixelating. Typical. So I went up to Klein's.

Let it be said, that on this day, absolutely nothing went wrong with my Klein's prescription, payment, NOTHING!!

While leftovers heat up, after which I'm gonna do dishes and then maybe start bread. Bread will be today or tomorrow. Tomorrow seems more likely. Anyway, here's pix from my fridge I took Saturday. Why the fuck not?

Door top shelf. Not shown, since it was my cell camera, is the 'butter' compartment which has a tub of spreadable Earth Balance. I could drink that Vanilla Chai Bolthouse Farms all day, all night, whole town.

20170311_160734

Middle shelf. The limitations of cell phone cameras. Anyway. Jack Daniels jalepeno mustard, spicy brown mustard, horseradish, parmesan cheese---yes, I thought I could have a bit of it and it wouldn't bug my dairy allergy, HAH! Gotta give that to Eddie. Stick Earth Balance, worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, and in front of the EB boxes is Mouse's last bottle of compound insulin. I am a total sap and have never thrown it away. It's from 2005, when she passed. Also Raspberry Honey Mustard which I am using for pretzels. This stuff is AWESOME. Got it on clearance. .79 a jar and there were 3 jars and yep, I got 'em all!

Then peanut butter, salad dressing, small Bolthouse juice, grape juice--saw that in the store and thought 'damn, that sounds really good', jar of raspberry preserves, and blueberry jelly.

No pix of bottom shelf but there's a jug of maple syrup, ketchup, yellow mustard, and 2 half gallons of Chocolate Silk Soy milk.

Top shelf of fridge is rather bare. Tofu, spaghetti sauce, and salsa. Plus little container with baking soda and vanilla.

Deli drawer has Daiya 'cheese' slices. Yes, I have eggs. Container of baking yeast, lentil salad, Tofurky sausage, peppers, 'outside' apples [for squirrels and birds], and some Jackfruit thing that looked interesting.

Figure I'll have some of this with lasagna.

Looked interesting. Think I'll have it over couscous.

Bottom shelf. Celery, salad, cara cara oranges, apples for me, 2 bottles of some alcohol root beer Wendy gave me, and a bottle of Cheerwine the succubus brought me years ago. I find that product amusing, hence it's home in the fridge.

Not pictured in crisper drawers: more salad, carrots, lemons, limes, jalepenos, zucchinis, mushrooms, and cucumbers.

Believe it when I see it...

....they are giving us a weather advisory for 5pm tonight thru 8pm Wednesday saying 4-7 inches of snow. Uh huh.

Yes, I'm a luna-tic...

Knew it was the full moon tonight. Saw it rising and it was at my eye level. It's really cold out and I figured I'd have to walk up to Columbia or further, so I did the smart thing and drove. Good thing, as it was dead on aligned with York. Of course parking at the dead end of York was filled, so I parked at the corner of York and Patterson and walked a few houses down on the dead end of York. And right beyond the dead end of York is Rte 8.

Nah, not full moon fever. Though I did wake up sweating this morning. Hmmmm...
