How are you doing. I was lurking cos only got few minutes to babble
5:35 am
Merk

This is one of those fun grids that you can add -ing to everything immaginable so you tend to keep your nose in the grid doing so.
5:36 am
Merk

In fact I just realized that you cannot even use an -ing in the chat box or it is likely to land you in the penalty box.

Sarah Palin dropped out of a 5k race on Thanksgiving Day in Kennewick, Wash. The former vice presidential candidate and Alaska Governor quit the race because she wanted to avoid the crowds that were waiting for her at the end, BUT SHE ANNOUNCED ON TWITTER THAT SHE'D BE RUNNING! Accckkkk!

yes, une... hence the aix in unaixoise.... we may go there this summer actually

i thought it was more, palin can't put a coherent sentence together, so people who love words don't like her. but perhaps i am putting a generous interpretation on.

hope you get to make the trip -- beautiful part of the world
10:30 am

thank you Dorens... I'm not saying there aren't a whole lot of stupid right-wingers out there, but I think on balance it's about equal in terms of which party draws more stupidity

nrk, do you find that the intelligent conservatives are embracing palin? i thought not

i don't think there is any hope for the US anymore. china's the rising power and we're the fading one. our political system is so gnarled up that it doesn't matter who's elected anymore.

well in a way it's more for my sake than anything. having had one bout with ringworm before, i think vets ought to tell every cat owner about ringworm. it's a simple precaution to take and a HUGE pain in the rear if they get it.
11:39 am
Atalante

absolutely!
11:40 am

do some vets not do that? that sucks

Soodle hangs head in shame, and goes voluntarily to the PB, even though not actually guity of PB offence. Maybe self-imposed sentence will encourage fellow babblers to forgive her!

Hello, stidmama. Yes, the fall show went much better than the spring. Holiday sale this weekend, too, but that's usually pretty small. Thanks for asking!

yes, a LOT of work piled on in honor of our week "off" *exasperated mama look* -- some of the work could have been assigned weeks ago so we could budget our time better. still. it's over for the quarter in two more weeks!

poor overworked stid
3:01 pm
stidmama

yes, an actual break -- though I will be reading as much as I can to get ahead... you know how it is. another 40 books or so for the next quarter.
3:02 pm
Vicuna

Sheesh. Poor overworked stid, indeed.
3:03 pm
stidmama

I can always drop out, I suppose, but I keep hoping things will get "better" if not easier. if they don't get "better" I don't know ... I don't mind work, I mind not knowing what I am supposed to be doing!
3:04 pm
Dorens

you're not dropping out...just hopefully better profs next semester?
3:04 pm
Scrabbler

Just keep plugging along. The challenge for you, Stid, is that you have other roles to play besides being a student.
3:04 pm
Vicuna

But do you feel that all the work is really teaching you something and getting you somewhere? Or does it seems like a stupid waste of time?
3:04 pm
stidmama

nope. same teachers for the whole two years. THIS is when it's not an advantage to have self-contained programs. Usually this sort of thing has worked well for me.
3:05 pm
Scrabbler

How many students are in the same program?
3:05 pm
kje

grad school is that way... much less structure, much more feeling your way, less guidance and more seeking the profs out... nature of the beast
3:05 pm
Dorens

an awful lot of education courses seem like a stupid waste of time.... even years later, when you're teaching, you wonder why????
3:05 pm
stidmama

no, this quarter has been mostly a waste of time. A clear set of lectures with "review questions" immediately after would have helped focus the learning. the rambling lectures with a sort of summative take-home test (absent clear identification of the main ideas) does not work for me.
3:05 pm
Vicuna

Which is why I taught at private schools without ever being "qualified," Doren! lol
3:06 pm
Dorens

always knew you were a smart gal, vi
3:06 pm

No, that sounds bad, stid. I hope they have evaluations you can fill out. =P

yes, there are evaluations, my question is whether to give a big down eval this quarter, or wait and see how things shake out.
3:08 pm
Dorens

finito!
3:08 pm
stidmama

YAY doren!!!!
3:08 pm
kje

I am betting you will feel differently a couple years from now, stid.... unless you are in an abnormally bad program... it wasn't until later that i really appreciated how much they made me think just by being so damned vague and nebulous - I often felt like they could have taught better, but in the end, realized I am a better thinker than many of my friends who went through very structured programs
3:09 pm
kje

BTW, not talking about med school, talking about grad school masters in epi
3:09 pm

med school is nothing BUT structure
3:09 pm

Yippee Doren!

thanks kje (((many hugs))) that is my hope, but right now... If that is their plan, I wish they would make it explicit!
3:09 pm
Dorens

yah, i figured that kj!
3:09 pm
Vicuna

That's an interesting way to think about it, kje. Do you think they did that on purpose in your program, or just that you managed to make something good out of something bed?
3:10 pm
kje

well, I susopect they would say they did it on purpose - LOLOL
3:10 pm
stidmama

LOL since we are learning to be teachers of children, and since I KNOW that children benefit from structure, I would prefer them to model those practices!
3:10 pm
Dorens

stidd, my grad work in counseling was particularly ridiculous.... we had to dig for everything, read the books and dig, which helped us learn to be resourceful, which is necessary in education. Was told later on it was helpful, but i think the prof (there were only two in the program) was just a lazy old bean
3:10 pm
kje

I went to JHU Bllomberg SPH - the top ranked program in the country, so I must believe they had some method to the madness, though while in it at times I wanted to shoot them all

3:12 pm

well, adult learning theory is different than child... so it doesn't surprise me that they do not treat you like you are 10 stid ; )

you can put a bandage around the whole foot to keep him from tracking blood all over; it'll stop eventually on its own.

if he'll take 'em, try giving him little treats the whole time, as long as he's calm. it's both reward and distraction in one :)

4:55 pm
jesdraggon

if you can, you might try filing his nails with an emery board while they're not too long; just goes quick, no pinching or snapping, you can't quick him, and he gets used to having his toes played with with a little less stress
4:55 pm
welki

ok .. cornstarch on (bleeding through), paper towel, pressure ongoing .. treats would excite him, he's being a calm guy on his own
4:56 pm

baxter and husband are de-briefing each other on the couch ... so we're sitting there, i'm putting on the bandage and there's MORE blood! where the heck! from a back claw! these new clips are dangerous ... i bought a good pair instead of the cheap ones i bought before ... that's what i get for upgrading! calamity of errors ... bad sitcom ... visit from the spca *lol* (jess .. how long to keep bandaged? an hour? would hate to take off and have bleeding start again)
5:18 pm
welki

have to say this is NOTHING compared to when the kids raised 4H bunnies and one would clip too close
5:18 pm
jesdraggon

hahah. sharp cuts bleed more! they hurt less though, so that's sort of good?
5:19 pm
jesdraggon

eh. if he'll leave the bandages on the rest of the afternoon, it doesn't hurt to leave them on. but at least an hour so a clot can form
5:19 pm
Atalante

it's so horrendous, it looks like you've been murdering your pets, doesn't it
5:19 pm
welki

will he lick it off? (of course he will .. i just washed the sheets and blankets)
5:20 pm
welki

sorry to monopolize the chog, folks ... will gladly clue to make up for the intrusion
5:20 pm
jesdraggon

the clot? it should form inside the nail. usually once they stop bleeding they're good. but he'll probably lick all the blood and flour off from the hair between his toes
5:21 pm
Atalante

but don't start panicking if you do see little blood trails - when I did that to Hobbit, it bled on and off a little bit for a day
5:22 pm

I think (rationally) that when you take care of someone intensively, it is inevitable to goof up occasionally. But when I am the one goofing up and my dog or child is the victim, I feel soooooo bad and evil.

when I was young, we used to spend a lot of time in a nature reserve that my parents were wardens for. They don't feel the cold. They always thought I was whinging when I said I was freezing. Now mum realises I wasn't ... so I spent half my childhood shivering. She feels suitably guilty LOL

my younger son broke the same arm (different places) near the wrist twice in 9 months a few years back. The second xray was not completely indicative of a break, but I ended up insisting we cast it and treat it as if it was (wristbones don't always heal properly) just in case.

red - I guess twiddle in the sense of something small comes from the term tiddler and has been changed in local dialect.
8:01 pm

The proper meaning of twiddle is a combination of twirl and fiddle, I think.
