well, I've had this lump in my neck for a couple of weeks, and last week I burst it and it tripled in size at least...so I went in to the doc today and he says they're more common as we age and it's harmless....and I asked, but what if it moves? as mine did...he says the old one disappeared and the new one appeared...not having had these before I didn't know what is was...I can go to a specialist or a generalist, but not anyone associated with a group practice to have it surgically removed, or I can leave it well enough alone and hope nothing else happens? some type of epi****? cysts is what I heard...little (!!) balloons of pus/oil that are normal (?) and come and go...he says usually on the torso/back...mine just next to the clavicle now and not so obvious...

hmmm that's a good idea pav
1:12 am
mrpresident

If mother-in-law has a smooth tongue, saturate it with honey to pollinate her pallet. Don't forget to add that special touch of super glue.
If her tongue is raspy, sand it down with a gift of a belt sander. The sander also works well in removing unsightly back hair.

I hope they will agree to do it jili; I kept a few Christmas cards she has sent us over the years, and I took in samples. I am just afraid they don't want to be bothered.

Is it cold there too? It feels like it's freezing here (probably isn't but it's the first real cold blast we've had and I don't like it....I'm a Texas girl at heart!)
3:37 am
Marmar

Oh, the beach! I love walking by the sea!
3:37 am
Atalante

3:38 am

3:38 am
Atalante

3:40 am
Marmar

ness.....
3:43 am
Atalante

oh blech! yes. we take the tunnel. much easier!
3:45 am
Marmar

The tunnel... I never took that plunge. I know it's safe, I just could not commit to it.
3:46 am
Atalante

I hated it the first time, I was convinced we were going to die any second
3:46 am
Atalante

but it's so quick and easy, and you dont' even realise you're under the water. it's smooth and dark outside so you can't see the tunnel!
3:48 am
Marmar

My sister just told me a great quote, something to the effect of: The only way to reach "courage" is through the door called "fear". I bet I could do it now (more mature now and realistic) Actually I may be coming to see a friend within the next year who just moved to the southern coast of England...waiting for her to finish renovating OLD house!
3:49 am
Marmar

maybe we'll have the opportunity to try the tunnel.

3:59 am
sandyloo

i just had a huge adventure- took the dogs for a walk and noticed Jaffa looking at something- it was a snake and it raised up like a cobra with its mouth open- i ran and called the dogs and they came and we were all safe thank goodness
3:59 am
sandyloo

it was a tiger snake very deadly as are most of our snakes
4:00 am
mrpresident

4:00 am

sandyloo

4:01 am
Marmar

4:01 am
sandyloo

it was sooooo scary
4:02 am
Marmar

Where I am from in Texas there are rattlers and copperheads but we rarely saw them. (lived in the city, I guess in the country is a different story)
4:03 am
sandyloo

most of our snakes are deadly, around here we get mostly dugites and tigers
4:03 am
sandyloo

i wish the foxes would all get bitten
4:04 am
sandyloo

tiger snakes will actually chase you in their breeding season
4:05 am
Marmar

it's a trade off I guess, the most gorgeous landscapes on earth but deadly snakes live there too.
4:05 am
sandyloo

i suppose it
4:05 am
herinfernallady

Hi Angel
5:31 am
FMitch

I hope not Haz that would be one program I would make a point of missing
5:33 am
Haz1558

Oh well, it's not going to happen for a while yet, so all the Dr Who fans have time to prepare themselves for another manifestation.
5:33 am

5:34 am
Haz1558

They showed a clip of Catherine Tate on the awards ceremony last night. I'd have benefitted from subtitles.

Haz1558

My rolling transcript in my head couldn't keep up.
5:35 am
FMitch

I missed it, meant to watch but was sidetracked with something else
5:36 am
Haz1558

We didn't watch the whole thing, just a bit towards the end. Most of the time I was helping Raymond Blanc make the right decision as to who was going to run a restaurant with him.
5:36 am
FMitch

for which I am sure he is eternally grateful!
5:36 am
Haz1558

He is very grateful not to be on the end of letters from me accusing him of idiocy!
5:38 am
Haz1558

I know the editors of TV programmes have a lot to do with how you perceive certain candidates, but it would have appeared very strange if he had made a different decision.
5:38 am
FMitch

this is an interesting grid.
5:39 am
FMitch

Which couple won?
5:40 am
Haz1558

Russell and Michelle. The losers were Alastair and James - who had made lots of mistakes along the way but kept being given another chance.
5:41 am
Haz1558

Just for future reference - don't try to serve 40 portions of lobster thermidor on a moving train.

Scrabbler

Maybe I wil have oatme4 too, but I do the instant stuff.
6:53 am

it is the cyprus flag... it is the island with laurel branches under it... can google to see larger flag if you like
6:53 am
Scrabbler

kje had a private helicopter drop her off, of course.
6:54 am
kje

this is McCann's irish steel cut oatmeal, takes a half hour to cook, but the only stuff i like anymore after having it.... so superior in taste to the mushy instant stuff
6:54 am
kje

I got to the island by ferry from turkey
6:54 am
Scrabbler

30 minutes? It must be worth it.
6:54 am
redturtlehead

ITs good. at first of course I thought you had written McCain....LOL...

I am happy to not be at work today.
7:02 am
Scrabbler

Stupid call. They wanted to let me know that our schedule shows a kid having adenoids out and ear tubes put in, in case I wanted to visit. I am not going to see a kid on the ENT service.
7:03 am
kje

i will work all day on a talk i must give at a conference tomorrow... updates in IM CME course here in dallas... once again, left it to the last minute
7:04 am
Scrabbler

Good luck, kje. Last week I gave a talk to parents at the school where I am the doc--preschool for kids with developmental issues. I winged it.
7:04 am
kje

easier to wing it for lay people than other docs... i wouldn't even attempt that... aaaggghhh
7:05 am
Scrabbler

I asked for questions and topics--that made it easier to address their concerns.
7:05 am
Scrabbler

Oh, of course, kje.
7:06 am
Scrabbler

I would puke +/or faint if I had to speak in front of colleagues. I generally dislike doctors.
7:06 am

As a Canadian, I would just like to say, that I think Obama would be the best choice for president. He is by far the best speaker I have ever heard. His ability to talk to everyone, from the farmer, to the businessman, to the politician, to the world leader is clear. Since the US affects the entire world, I hope that he is elected as I feel much better being their neighbor with him in charge. 'Nuff said.

morning all. as another canadian, i think obama will be elected. he speaks very well and has personal charisma. i find his policies flat and uninspiring, his campaign has been run largely on charm rather than substance and he will likely prove an inoffensive but mediocre president. i fear he will be walking into a mine field of disasters left by the current administration. that said, mccain is a crazy old coot and palin is a dangerous, lunatic.

8:10 am
MonkeyGames

That's true. However, teh poor guy has taken over third-year students (my school sold the degree to another school, so my last two quarters are at the new place) and was not familiar with this style of teaching, and THOUGHT he had a copy of the exam. So the fault is higher up.

MG I almost did accupunct. last year when I was having leg pains. Does it really hurt??
8:14 am
MonkeyGames

Thanks for the support, everyone. This has been tougher than I expected, especially being in Dutch and all.
8:15 am
MonkeyGames

No, not really, Red. I've had it before too. The electrification was at a very sensitive spot on me, but it still wasn't as bad as, say, stepping on a thumb tack. Mostly it just kind of prickles a bit, if that.
8:15 am
redturtlehead

perhaps if I get another Injury I shall try it...hopefully I will not get one.
8:16 am
MonkeyGames

Try not to, Red. But I have had good results with it in the past, so that's why I picked it when I ran out of paid-for physio and saw that my insurance has to pay for 500 Euros in alternative medicine too.
8:17 am
Judi

Way to read the fine print, Monkey!
8:17 am
redturtlehead

no kidding I want to avoid docs. I just had that cortisone injected in my hip....and it was no good.
8:17 am
redturtlehead

but I admit now the hip feels much better.
8:18 am
MonkeyGames

Oh, believe me, if they want to play hard ball so will I. I tracked down their policy info and printed it out. I have also signed up for the "movement advice" and am seeing what I have to do to get someone to come clean my house while my back hurts-- I think so far I just need a doctor's note to make them pay for that. And I will track down anything else I can that they have to pay for.
8:19 am
MonkeyGames

Red, I have a friend who needs that every six months. I know it's nasty, but it does help!
8:19 am
redturtlehead

Wow, my doc will only inject my joint 2 times in my life! He says the steroid thins the joint a little.
8:19 am
Judi

Red - I've been after my Doc to approve a cortisone shot for my hip. He keeps refusing. He's usually very reasonable. I think I'll suggest trading hips with him.
8:20 am
redturtlehead

I thought I had made a big mistake but it really did improve, but I was inactive for 2-3 weeks, so I wonder if I had just been inactive for that amt of time if I would have just gotten beter.
8:20 am
Judi

That sounds rather silly, red. I mean, aren't hip joints the largest joints in the body?
8:21 am
MonkeyGames

My friend really needs a new hip, but her insurance says she's too young. In January she can switch insurers and get that done.
8:21 am
redturtlehead

Well, if you thin them out...they willbe very prone to breaking...So I agree with him.
8:21 am
Judi

Too young. Now, that makes no sense at all.
8:22 am
redturtlehead

I've heard it actually from about 4-6 docs over the years.
8:22 am
MonkeyGames

I agree. A degraded hip is a degaraded hip. She's 56.
8:22 am

I am going to have to have my hip replaced as well, but I want to wait until at leat 20 more years.

11:59 am
hurshy

yeah, ruru! seen her telling that woman going speed-dating in a commercial "don't do anything i wouldn't do"?
11:59 am
kje

but is that still going on?
11:59 am
hurshy

poor woman can't hold an intelligent conversation in her speed dates?
11:59 am
Atalante

oooo it's that strange american sports language again :D
11:59 am
hurshy

ata!
12:00 pm
hurshy

great pic of hobbit
12:00 pm
rururocks

It would be very difficult to go out on a date with her and have to stick to single syllable words all the time
12:00 pm
Atalante

ty :)
12:01 pm
kje

but is he really any better than that, ruru.. .he is a football player! not exactly an intellectual
12:01 pm
rururocks

... er got me there...
12:01 pm
kje

and i do not think the conversation is the main attraction
12:01 pm
Atalante

she was a very brave girl - it was the first time ever she managed to fetch sticks from the evil depths of the sea. All foot deepness of it!
12:01 pm
rururocks

some players are very bright though...
12:02 pm
kje

not after a concussion or two
12:02 pm
rururocks

okay...I give..

12:04 pm

have you seen the videos of those monkeys that work in some restaurant in asia? they are so cute.
12:05 pm
Atalante

yes! so cute!
12:05 pm
Haz1558

Good afternoon/evening all.
12:06 pm
hurshy

and did you hear that shamans in Lima are polling 9-2 for obama?
12:06 pm
hurshy

someone at your highly brilliant BBC called them "shamen" in the link to the story...
12:06 pm
Atalante

haz! I was hoping you'd come on. I found myself in the midst of a liver-and-white spaniel snowstorm when out with Hobbit. I saw 6 of them. 6!!
12:06 pm
kje

LOL hursh - seriously... that is ridiculous
12:07 pm
Haz1558

6? All belonging to the same owner?
12:07 pm
Atalante

nope. all different owners. I swear all liver-and-whites in Kent must have been there!
12:08 pm
Haz1558

Maybe there was a convention or something. Were they happy and bouncy?
12:08 pm
Atalante

hugely bouncy. bouncy, wet, muddy and very happy
12:09 pm
Atalante

It was a bit freaky though
12:09 pm
Haz1558

And not a ribbon or bow in sight? Real doggy dogs.
12:09 pm
hurshy

"dogs" say my cats with an incredulous shake of their heads
12:09 pm
Atalante

real doggy dogs. mostly liver-white-and-mud
12:09 pm
Haz1558

I thought of you last night when David Tennant made his announcement. Are you in mourning?
12:10 pm
hurshy

what did david tennant announce?? is he quitting dr who????
12:10 pm
Atalante

not as much as FM will be, I think
12:10 pm
Haz1558

Yes.
12:10 pm
hurshy

ohhh noooooooooooooooooooo
12:10 pm
Haz1558

He will do a couple of specials in 2009 but 2010 will see a new Dr.
12:11 pm
hurshy

why would he do this? :(
12:11 pm
Haz1558

Poor cats. They'll be wondering why their mistress is distraught.
12:11 pm
Haz1558

He didn't want to be typecast - said if he didn't make the move now he never would.
12:11 pm
Atalante

because he wants to do other things!
12:11 pm
Haz1558

All announced in his own Scottish voice.
12:11 pm
Atalante

and he's been the Dr for a while now, it's time for a change
12:12 pm
Haz1558

Is there any rule that says there are only a limited number of changes that Dr Who can have?
12:14 pm
Atalante

yes ......
12:14 pm
hurshy

i have just un-become-his-fan on facebook
12:14 pm
hurshy

although i spose it's different in the UK
12:15 pm
Haz1558

Oh hurshy. You're so harsh. The man is an actor, he needs to be stretched. (He's appearing in Hamlet at the Royal Shakespeare Company)
12:15 pm
hurshy

in america, if someone quits a popular role to "do other things", they are almost never successful. clooney, of course, being a notable exception.
12:16 pm
Atalante

but DT was famous before Dr Who
12:16 pm
Haz1558

It's different here, I think.
12:16 pm
hurshy

well i find this estremely sad
12:16 pm
hurshy

he's so cute, i love him as the doctor
12:16 pm
Haz1558

I'm sorry to have been the one to break the news, then.
12:17 pm
hurshy

ah well, it's not YOUR fault, haz
12:17 pm
hurshy

i'm not one to blame the messenger
12:17 pm
Atalante

that's part of Dr Who, I'm afraid. He reincarnates
12:17 pm
Haz1558

Oh, absolutely not. I've not watched the programme for perhaps two decades.
12:17 pm
hurshy

yes but he could have waited another few seasons...
12:17 pm
Atalante

why?
12:18 pm
Atalante

it's about the right time, doctor canon-wise
12:18 pm
hurshy

hmph
12:19 pm
Haz1558

I wondered if there might be a talent contest, a la Lloyd Webber, to find the replacement. FM had a dose of the shivers at the prospect.
12:19 pm
hurshy

at least we know the human-doctor is living on happily with rose... that's some comfort.
12:20 pm
Atalante

wahhhh *cries* no no NOO!
12:20 pm
hurshy

i thought it was really sad what happened about donna though... do you mean a TELEVISED talent contest, haz?
12:20 pm
Haz1558

Not keen on the Lloyd Webber scenario?
12:21 pm
hurshy

that would be BAD
12:21 pm
Haz1558

Yes, hurshy,they're all the rage here. Lloyd Webber can't get his face in enough of them.
12:21 pm
hurshy

they're all the rage here too, but i can't watch most of them
12:21 pm
Haz1558

And it's such a strange face.
12:22 pm
pugmama763

hi babblers
12:22 pm
hurshy

you just came up with the doctor idea out of your own head, though, right? it doesn't have any basis?
12:22 pm
Haz1558

Oh - good news for you, hurshy. You like Simon Cowell, don't you?
12:22 pm
hurshy

yes, i enjoy simon's bluntness
12:22 pm
Haz1558

He received a special recognition award last night at the British National TV awards.
12:23 pm
hurshy

oh, well, i don't really care about him winning awards. unless he said something blunt while accepting it.
12:23 pm
Haz1558

The Lloyd Webber scenario is indeed a figment of my imagination. Although, given his track record, I wouldn't be surprised if he proposed it.
12:23 pm
Atalante

mind you, John B is bound to be on "Who is the next doctor?" so we could just drool over him
12:23 pm
Haz1558

Well, he sat mouthing 'I don't believe it' when another programme beat his for an award.
12:23 pm
Haz1558

Hello pugmama!
12:23 pm
hurshy

that's something! :)
12:24 pm
Atalante

do you like Russell Brand then, Hurshy? :P
12:24 pm
pugmama763

12:24 pm

12:24 pm

Stirrer being Ata rather than Pugmama!
12:24 pm
Atalante

hi puggy!
12:24 pm
Atalante

he's blunter than simon!
12:25 pm
Haz1558

I wish the rest of us didn't know him either.
12:25 pm
pugmama763

hurshy

12:25 pm
Atalante

12:25 pm
Atalante

oh he's hideous
12:25 pm
Haz1558

A creep who thinks he's funny.
12:25 pm
Haz1558

Think loathsome and multiply.
12:26 pm
Atalante

with bad hair
12:26 pm
hurshy

a hideous creep, i've got that much... but how is it that you know him
12:26 pm
hurshy

what is his venue
12:26 pm
Atalante

he's TV / radio presenter / "comedian"
12:26 pm
Haz1558

He's on TV and radio over here.
12:26 pm
hurshy

12:27 pm

12:27 pm
Atalante

I don't think I'd even claim RB has the talent of an eighth of a person
12:28 pm
Haz1558

pug - it's an anagram of the hanging ly5, with a verb form of 'to be' tacked on to the end.
12:28 pm
hurshy

ly + mr. columbus, change r to n

pugmama763

12:45 pm
EspritdJean

Gadget it sucks
12:45 pm
Haz1558

I wouldn't call it as hard as some I've seen.
12:46 pm
Atalante

not easy, either, though

my sentiments, exactly
12:46 pm

12:53 pm
FMitch

in enable land yes Esprit - in normal world some.
12:54 pm
Haz1558

And a yu4 - one letter short of being a plant.
12:54 pm
Haz1558

And yu4/9 - sounds like an expression of disgust.
12:54 pm
EspritdJean

ok got the plant one
12:54 pm
FMitch

and the other could be a comment about this grid (ish)
12:54 pm
EspritdJean

got the disgust
12:55 pm
EspritdJean

I see that my problem is looking for words I know instead of words that are ridiculous
12:55 pm
Haz1558

yl4 - y plus the start of a yellow citrus fruit.
12:55 pm
FMitch

lol eprit!
12:55 pm

Indian lentilas - sounds like fusion cookery!
12:58 pm
Vicuna

I was thinking the same. SOunds yummy, though, whatever it is.
12:58 pm

I'm fine as well. Much heartened by a dry day.

12:59 pm
Atalante

awww isn't that nice!
1:00 pm
Haz1558

Oh, FM. You promised you wouldn't tell.
1:00 pm
Atalante

I'm trying to find a colour scheme for new-knotwork-from-hell
1:00 pm
Haz1558

I understand *** makes you invisible ***
1:00 pm
Vicuna

Well, from hell would imply something with lots of fiery colors and blacks. Unless you're going for the ice circle...
1:00 pm
FMitch

try colourlovers.com Ata - if you can't find it there it doesn't exist!
1:01 pm
FMitch

((Haz)) sorry forgot we wouldn't talk of that.
1:02 pm
Haz1558

Thanks. If other people knew they'd only pity me. And I don't want pity.
1:02 pm
Atalante

we only pity you for having to feed a dog every now and then
1:03 pm
FMitch

We won't see Ata agaoin for a while - the first time I entered that website I was lost in joy for at leat 24 hours.
Oh great you spoiled that post Ata - gee thanks!
1:03 pm

That's true.

1:04 pm

wah! what did I do?
1:04 pm
Vicuna

You appeared still here when FM was busy predicting we'd never see you again!
1:05 pm
Haz1558

She obviously has steadfastly ignored your advice, FM.
1:05 pm
Haz1558

Does that colour thing work for lots of people, FM?
1:05 pm
Atalante

I will go there when I can't discover my own colour scheme :P
1:05 pm
FMitch

Oh fllobies just got email from client with stuff for meeting tomorrow a.m which means much prep - toodles - big sigh!
1:05 pm

Would it be a good diversionary tactic when trolls and others call?
1:05 pm
Atalante

annoying clients!
1:07 pm
Haz1558

Bye FM (trying not to leak from the eyes - I've been so good in other areas today)
1:07 pm
Vicuna

Oh no, poor FM! Be brave, be strong!
1:08 pm
Haz1558

That website must have a different address. Unless FM speaks Russian.
1:08 pm
Vicuna

It spoke English for me. Maybe you're really the one speaking Russian, Haz.
1:09 pm
Haz1558

I've found one called colourscheme.com - it looks the business.
1:10 pm
Vicuna

lol, that one didn't work for me!
1:10 pm
Vicuna

Clearly one of us is Russian!
1:11 pm
Atalante

Haz has a Z in her name. Suspicious
1:11 pm
Haz1558

Your icon looks a bit Russian imperial to me. J'accuse!
1:11 pm
Vicuna

You're speaking French. So you're not English, at any rate!
1:12 pm
Atalante

good point Vi
1:12 pm
Vicuna

And we know all ferriners are the same.
1:12 pm
Haz1558

Of course, the Russian Imperial court spoke French rather than Russian.
1:13 pm
Haz1558

Wait, I'm making it worse for myself.
1:13 pm

How do they know, though? The cat cannot really see most of hertself in the larger picture, of course. This blanket is all teh colors she is, and if she lies on it she's nearly invisible. Talk about the power of instinct!
