Oh, and I watched another 20 min debate on this last night and it was pretty neat. They were talking about the dangers of people thinking they can multi task thanks to all the different devices you use now. You may be Tweeting, while on face book, while texting, while googling, while watching split screen tv. This is giving people the impression that they can do so many things at once, when in all honesty you can not. People can multi task, but only to some extent. When you start throwing so many things into the mix, people don't bother to dig further, double check, really learn or become informed, do anything to a thorough extent. It's actually decreasing brain function, and as a result you mind changes. You start over reacting to trivial things, and under reacting to the important. I found that particularly interesting because this is a side effect of the stress and burn out on my job. I might be instructing CPR, while giving directions to house fire, while sending police to a domestic, while taking a call on a stabbing, etc... Dispatchers who have been doing the job for so long end up losing it and completely freaking out about nothing, while ignoring the important. This is a researched fact. Makes sense.

ETA: and it also makes me wonder about the research that has been done on stress/depression levels staring to climb with my generation and double with the next, etc... When in all reality, we (and that's a general/based on historic events) have had it a bit easier than past generations. No one has been able to figure out why.

Arrived at 830 for my 830 doctor appointment, feeling bad because I always like to be about 15 minutes early. I see the sign on the door showing office hours begin at 900. The office is dark. No one is there. And I'm pissed off. The guy who scheduled me said, several times, so first thing in the morning, 830. Dude, you don't even open until 900.

This is an appt to get inserts for my shoes due to plantar fasciitis, I'm already anticipating a large bill, making me an appt when you aren't actually open increases the chances of my saying "nevermind, I'll figure something else out"

Gah, that is annoying AND unprofessional. Perri, someone on the board posted about these a while back -- have you tried them? Apologies if you are the one who posted.

Things that perplex me:

1) A car can simply over heat, showing nothing but white smoke, on a busy highway and we will get at (the very) least 20 reports of a vehicle fire.

2) The brakes on a tanker carrying over 8000 gallons of gas can burst into flames, and smoke, on the same highway, and no one calls... Period.

3) Why some lax idiot would schedule PerriP's appointment before they are even open.

I do hope your inserts work!

I saw TWO people with dogs in their cars on the way in today. I was happy to see them, but sad I can't bring any of my gang in with me.

I guess when I think of class I think more socially. The three indicators they use; Education, Income and Wealth, to me, are based on choices.

I grew up poor, I got a college degree because my mother had such a hard time finding a job after my father passed away in the 80's because she didn't have one. "Do what makes you happy in life, but get that piece of paper first" she would say.

I make a good salary because I chose a good job, however I work for every dollar. Working in a Utility company means 24/7 operations. I work long days, I have to be on call so many weeks per year and if there's a storm or some other natural disaster then I'm on 16hr shifts until everything is repaired. Actually when the weather is bad, that's when we're the most needed. I've been outside doing my job in the blazing heat, freezing cold, blizzards, hurricanes...you name it.

On paper I look like a high class lady, but no one will be inviting me to any black tie galas anytime soon. I'm just too blue collar for that.

Occupation, education, income, and wealth aren't purely based on choices though. However, if you do think about each in a vacuum, what's interesting is class used to be based/weighted quite a bit more on wealth, specifically inherited wealth. Not so much anymore, and one argument to explain this is increased education.

I have little wealth (inherited or otherwise), and even though I'm upper middle or higher in occupation, education, and income, I still only hit around 70/75 in class overall.

It is really interesting.
I agree that occupation, education, income and wealth aren't always based on choice. The opportunity to advance your station in life isn't available to everyone all the time,despite our societal rhetoric saying the contrary. I do have an issue with the occupation category in how they ranked a number of jobs as it implies a bias toward professional jobs and/or business ones. I'm sure lawyers, doctors and CEOs are ranked in the 90th percentile or better. Although I am in the healthcare field, I am not a doctor. Nor a nurse for that matter. My department processes appeals and grievances at a managed care plan. The closest occupational category for what we do is health support, but it doesn't fully capture the essence of what we do and our job titles aren't included in the general office support category. So when I picked health support, it states that it's in the 45th percentile, but I can argue that what we do is vastly important. In fact, any office support job is vastly important because without them, businesses would have a hard time operating. The rest of the graphic shows that I'm all over the place-91st percentile in education, 78th percentile in income, and 43rd percentile in wealth. Overall, I'm in the 64th percentile, or upple middle class. Never would have guessed.

Just say "I don't want to hurt your feelings, but BUTT OUT." Of course, say this after you've had enough vodka (power juice).

All I can say to the numerous people writing these blogs and articles is...

A practical joke (also know as a prank or shenanigan) is a mischievous trick or joke played on someone, typically causing the victim to experience embarrassment, perplexity, confusion or discomfort. Practical Jokes differ from hoaxes or confidence tricks in that the victim find out, or is let in on the joke, rather than being fooled into handing over money or other valuables.

Unless you handed over your life savings to the burnt twerker, quit yer crying.

(And I'd say it's probably in response to all the MC drama)

oh, the taping my dr did was like MAGIC, so the thought that I can do it myself REALLY makes me happy - thank you!!
I'll ask my dr about the other heel thingies when I go back to her in 2 weeks - she was a big proponent of using OTC and not custom-made etc, so she'll tell me if it'll waste my money!

thanks, guys!

the appointment was uneventful, really - I got a lecture on how my 'sensible flats' (by Clarks) were not sensible enough and I needed shoes that come further up my foot and perhaps have laces or a strap across them - perhaps I wanted to try SAS brand (if any of you are familiar, I made faces at the lady) - and that I should probably have a new pair of shoes for when the inserts arrive in 1-2 weeks. She looked at my feet and touched them, I was out in less than 10 minutes. so now i'm on a hunt for shoes that are not hideous LOL

Oy. Good luck, Perri. Check the Walking Company web site or store if you've got one near you. They've got a pretty good selection of comfy shoes. RCC wears some cute, comfy shoes, but I can't remember the name. Starts with an "A" I think.

Yep, that's it, you remembered! Well, the Walking Company's selection is fairly pricey. Apparently comfort costs more. At least they're having some pretty good sales right now though.

*sigh*

this is supposed to be a public ceremony but i only have 156 seats for the public. i suspect that there are more than 156 lawyers in the tri-city area; and the local administrative judge apparently told some of them at a meeting that they were ALL welcome...



let's make that TWO bottles of vodka and a straw!

We didn't get the car Some jerk way overbid on it right off the bat.

It was one of THE Supernatural cars used in the show. Specifically, it was one of the junk cars on the set when they crossed into another reality where they were actors playing Sam and Dean. I might be wrong, but I think it was the car they tried to drive off in.

I love those old Impalas, and getting one that contact with Jensen Ackles butt would have been a very happy bonus.

We think it was a revenge thing, the same guy did the same thing on another car the co-worker was trying to get. But I can take comfort in the fact that the joke will be on him. This is an auction for cars in need of restoration. These cars need thousands of dollars worth of work, and the guy paid near or over the blue book value of a fully restored car.

Sorry, Ziggy. I do not watch the show, but I know both the guys are cute so I get it It would have been cool to get the car and restore it, but the joke is absolutely on the other guy. Is it a giant boat of an impala? We used to have a massive brown one.


I had to run to the gas station earlier and there was the cutest little boy inside. I am guessing they had mopped sometime before I came in. The floor was completely dry but they still had the signs out. He followed me around saying "Be Tareful! Floors swippery here, floor swippery over der. Floor swippery everywhere!" Precious. His grandmother, not so much. She was screaming his name like I was going to murder him if he didn't run toward her, immediately! COME HERE! COME HERE! Chill out. Let's not bring him to work, let him run around, and scream at him for being very kind and considerate to customers.


One more thing about the JK joke video, because it made me laugh.

I love my best friend. She's always been there for me and she's so dependable. But she tends to take everything I say offensive. She's become so sensitive and she takes some things I say and turn them around. I don't understand why she thinks I'd deliberately want to hurt her feelings, but I'm tired of walking on eggshells. Honey, if you allow everything people say to effect you then it's going to be a hard life for you.
