Ouch, Midgi, that sounds painful! I hope that feels better soon.

I've had corneal abrasions from contacts, but not an ulcer.

midgi, that sounds so painful! I didn't even know the eye could get an ulcer. I hope it gets better quickly.

I also didn't know the ear could pee, but apparently it can!

Surprisingly, it's not painful, just annoying. The ulcer is a very small cloudy dot on my iris, so my eye feels dry and every time I blink, it feels like there is something in my eye. Apparently, if you treat it early, it heals in about a week.

Yeeouch, Midgi. I'm sorry. That does sound bad. I hope it heals quickly.

The fog is so thick outside of my house right now. All my windows are covered in leaves and twigs so I tried to step outside and take a pic (I like fog pic's). When I opened my door countless spiders were stuck to it and 3 garter snakes were hiding under my door step. I said, "excuse me" and shut it back. Lol.

I know it's officially spring when it's time for me to keep a broom and garden hoe by the door. I'll gladly relocate all unless they are poisonous. Then it's OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!!

The worst day. Looks like my laptop has finally crashed and burned, right in the middle of me switching to a new webhosting site and uploading posts etc.

Plus there were a few things that weren't backed up.

Bugger.

I just divide by 4 or 5, though I visualize in fractions because I love fractions.

Default like really

In general, I dislike likes. I would like to like my likes.

If I can't find out which one of my posts earned the like, then there is no point for me.

(I can't pat myself on the back if I don't know which post it was. )

However, please don't let my dislike of likes stop you from liking my posts.

Code:
btw, this is not begging for more likes

nynaeve!

That reminds me of this ashtray my grandparents had that said "We don't swim in your toilet so please don't pee in our pool." except they didn't even have a pool.

I thought it was so risque when I was a kid to read that!

The concept is pretty helpful. It saves time figuring it out to the penny. I'm not exact and I give or take based on service.

My brother and SIL are buying a cake in the shape of a train and a cake for his daycare. I wish they had told me they wanted a cake for his class because while I don't have the time or equipment to make a special cake, I could have easily made a cake or cupcakes for the kids. I offered to buy one of them, and seriously, it would have cost me next to nothing to have made them myself.
The hardest part would have been picking what type of cake!

Saria, if it will help ease your mind you can make me a cake. Selfless, I know.

Math and I have an interesting relationship. I loved it as a kid - enough to choose to make my own Base 5 number system in fifth grade. All the numbers were pretty swirly/spiky symbols that were really fun to chart out. I got to do this because I was part of the group that kept finishing everything early in math and had an awesome teacher that year who insisted on us continuing to do math during math time and was willing to give us something other than more worksheets. I also still enjoy doing things like playing quick little math games with digital clocks on occasion when I glance over at one. (Example: It's 4:28 now, which reduces to 1:07. Or now that it's 4:29, 2+9=11, 1+1=2, which is the square root of 4, yay!! It's usually something like seeing the number of operations that'll take me to 1 or 0, though, which 4:30 makes way too easy. 4-3=1.)

In middle school, math and I had a bit of a falling out. The homework was just so repetitive and boring, and it kept getting worse each year! By high school, we were not friends anymore. Except in Honors Geometry Freshman year. I liked doing proofs. Those were the last As I ever got in math, and then it was right back to graphs and also a godawful teacher in Sophomore year. My homework was either a rush job done right before class or never got done at all, and my test performance fluctuated wildly between the weeks during which I'd done the homework and those during which I hadn't bothered, because a bunch of the concepts were taught in the homework. Every semester of Sophomore and Junior year, I let my math grade drop like a rock and pulled it back up from D to B in time for the final report card, and every semester my parents freaked the hell out when they randomly checked a progress notice or two and saw the damage. Anger at them for refusing to trust their goody-two-shoes Honor Roll girl scout daughter prolonged the slide each time. This was how I did the young and stupid thing: I played chicken with my math grade. (...Among other things.)

I was pretty mad when I found out that being in higher level math courses had made it so I could've quit after Sophomore year, so I was utterly done after Junior year. My friends were like, "You can't quit taking math! You can get college credit if you take the AP test next year and your grade was better than mine and don't abandon meeee!!" and I was like, "MATH AND I JUST NEED A BREAK RIGHT NOW WHEN YOU'RE OLDER YOU WILL UNDERSTAND."

Such a waste of a big TV moment to give it to a character like Kennedy. Hm, I am having a vague recollection of Spike saying something about smelling or sensing someone's presence in an earlier season, but nothing concrete. It's still kinda funny that Spike and Oz have given us the beginnings of a pattern of supernatural boyfriends (or love interest...things) being able to sniff out their girlfriends.

I didn't even know they screwed with the Avatar airing schedule! What dicks!
