  4. Better news today from spine doctor #1! Since I respond well to steroids, he's going to try epidural steroid injections. And I get to have the first one on Monday. If this works, I'll be able to be a lot more active. If it doesn't work, at least I tried!

  7. Not sure where I left off in this thread, but I gave up on trying to buy a place. The market is going up and LA is already crazy. I just kept losing to people making crazy cash offers, or waiving appraisals, or junk like that. It was too stressful and the horrible people above me were getting worse. I decided to do what I should have done a year ago and just rent a place in the suburbs close to my kid’s school (which he goes back to next week). I decided to get a top floor unit in one of those giant communities that have the feel of a Disney resort. It’s all manicured, has pools, a huge

  10. I finally broke the 3 mile barrier on my 10k training plan. I felt lousy and it was cold and I didn't want to do it, but I made myself do the workout. 44 minutes and got in 3.56 miles. I have to get ready for Ragnar Northwest Passage in July and my dumb ass volunteered for 19.2 miles.

  11. I got Trevor an appointment for his first shot tomorrow. I still haven't been contacted from the waitlist. I signed us up at the same time, so I don't know what the difference is. But at least he's getting one which is good since he's still partially working and definitely sees more people than I do.

  12. This is way to open. I need something— genre, era, drama vs sitcom. I just can’t! How do I put Agent Cooper, Spock, BoJack Horseman, Darlene Connor, and Saul Goodman on the same list?

  14. I went on a mile walk! This is the furthest I’ve been able to go since I got COVID. Tomorrow I’m going to start a challenge where I am starting with one push-up and then adding one each day. That seems really pathetic, but that’s where I am physically right now, and it’s taken a long time to get here.

  20. Destiny, thank you for inspiring so many hilarious (moronically juvenile) restaurant review headlines for me! Dick's: Mediocre at Best Soggy and Salty Dick's a Disappointment Trying Dick's for the First Time Dick's? Ronald Mcdonald Has Better Meat Now that you're all laughing at my (moronically juvenile) wit, I'll show myself out. But first... Destiny Advises: Don't Eat Dicks I'm here all week, folks. Two drink minimum and remember to tip your server.

  21. I got my second shot yesterday morning. I have been sleeping almost non stop, with breaks in between. Pain in the arm isn't any worse than Shot#1, but I am more sore all over. Like if you worked out hard for the first time in months. Main thing is I have no energy for anything. Tried to run errands today, got through only half of them, and had to go home for a 3 hour nap.

  23. I don’t know what it is like day to day, but I do know what is going into production when and by who— Mando 3 is happening, Filoni is doing the Ahsoka show, Favreu is doing his Rangers show, and the are both already well into Boba Fett. To say either is unhappy or leaving is just not true. All the names attached to Obi-Wan is due to the fact that it was developed as a movie that morphed into mini series, that morphed into a full show and at each stage there was a different writer-producer handling things. It has been a bit of a mess, but the people attached are plenty experienced even if

  25. Today I start my last community college course! Well, actually my phys ed course is still going until the end of the semester as well, but today starts my Texas Government class. I can already tell this professor and I are not going to get along. It's an 8 week class. Her syllabus has everything listed out as 14 weeks. Each "week" is only like 3-4 days, but it's still labeled as "Week 1", "Week 2"..."Week 14. I cannot.

  28. In the spirit of Zath and Tank sharing Boy Scout memories: I was kicked out of my Boy Scout troop for putting exlax in my Scout Master’s hot chocolate. He had refused to let us retaliate against another troop, by shooting fireworks at them, after they had trashed our camp. Up to that moment scouting was fun. I was lucky to have not been exposed to the vile aspects of humanity via the scouts... nor when I was an Altar Boy for a Roman Catholic Church. Dodged two bullets there, I guess.

  31. I was at some restaurant picking up food with my sister yesterday and waiting in line - six feet apart - and I overheard some guy talking to his buddies about how well they riot and burn a few things down but as tax payers we went to Washington DC and messed up a little bit of Congress and we're the criminals. Like because their paltry taxes they pay gives them the excuse to ransack Congress. And I literally felt like my Dad when I said "Two wrongs don't make a right." And they told me to shut up but I was pissed at that comment. "So someone burns a Wendy's down and that's your excuse to go to

  33. I’ve been slowly working at really changing my basement into an office instead of a storage room that I work in. Still have a lot to do, but I’ve upgraded to a real desk, changed some lighting, and added an automated music player that runs during work hours - helps to drown out noise from the family and also makes a soothing environment. When I’m all done, I’ll post before and after pics. Today will involve at least buying some frames for some art prints I’ve ordered to hang there so I can get rid of the pictures my daughter drew / colored for me. A couple is fine, but an entire wall

  39. In my experience, the boys don't seem to care much that the girls are girls. At least not in our group. In others, they may care a lot. And still, I think it's more a reflection of the parents. But regardless, the whole boy-girl dynamic we all mentioned is a much wider issue. It's not just in scouts or in STEM. It's pretty pervasive and it starts early. Just think about this - my meeting on Sunday was for the Key 3 from both troops and the head of our chartered org, all 5 of us women. We spent a not insignificant amount of time talking about what men would do on an all-male campout

  40. Regarding how girls and boys need to learn to work together. One of these things need to happen before the other. I can tell you that some ugly stuff happens in the work place and even in the school environment. Girls and women are regularly assigned housekeeping tasks on coed teams and in the office. They are made to compete with each other for leadership roles because here, we're throwing you girls a token leadership role to shut you up. I joined an engineering senior design team and was immediately given the task of managing the budget because I was the only woman and was not given any

  42. I honestly kinda feel guilty. I don't qualify yet, but they're not allowed to ask you anymore, so Katie just signed me up. I'm a little nervous about it because things have gone so well for us the last few months that I don't want to stir up any bad karma. But also fuck it I want this over with.

  43. Plus Asians are an easy punching bag because of the media reported success of Asians. People believe that Asians are doing so well that it’s punching up to go after them. Someone recently explained to me that it’s impossible to be racist against Asians because racism includes an element of suppression and Asians are successful.

  45. I think hunters fall into 2 categories. 1. People who like to kill stuff. i think it's that simple. I too eat meat, so maybe I'm a hypocrite, but I think there has to be something wrong with somebody to want to kill anything bigger than bug if it isn't a necessity. I get that these people must exist in the modern food chain for me to have a burger,, but I don't want to know them. 2. People who have grown up with it being a tradition in their family, either native/tribal, or just has a long line of hunters behind them. I have a friend who goes hunting with his dad and uncle. He was d
