I see people in the real world doing this. Movies are just reflecting that.

A new address was added to my route tonight. I like it. The number is an unlucky one and the street is called Hardpan Alley. I arrive to find it is in a gated community. I called my manager. She said of course you don't have the gate code, because they're crackheads. She calls people crackhead and threatens to punch people in the throat all the time. It's kinda funny, I guess until it's my turn.lol

She's beefing with another guy named Trayvon. I made a comment about locking him in one of the cages the papers come in. She said we can do it and give him some Skittles. I said I couldn't say that. She said she could because she was crazy.

Ditto.

I went to a tiny private HS, and in my class of 27, there were 4 “Davids”, 4 “Johns”/“Jons”, and a “John-David”. They were all referred to by last names or initials. Especially JD.

And in college, my group included a bunch of “Brians”, only one of whom was black, so he became “Black Brian.”

In a different time & place, I hung out with a group hat had several siblings, as well as a few unrelated people who shared the same surname. Most people in that group went by first names as a result.

Doing the memory road thing again. I am making a map to revisit the very FIRST DnD game I ever ran some 25+ years ago. What is there was a fortress at the base of a steep hillside that the enemy couldn't invade? Have the earth clerics topple the hillside onto it of course. So you have a buried fortress that is still structurally "sound" only underground.

For that that are diabetic or have relatives that are...… how quickly does the foot thing happen and do you/they come and go with the severity of the foot / leg problems. Last weekend I couldn't walk at all. The next two days I was back to being good with a cane. Today the knee wanted to give out but didn't. Three hours later I could move about with a cane.

I really am beginning to think my issues are more about nerves from the back injury than the diabetes.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

That may be exacerbated by diabetes, but that doesn’t sound like diabetes per se. It could be a lot of things.

My paternal grandfather, my Mom, my paternal Aunt’s fiancée, and a couple of my friends all have diabetes. I’m prediabetic myself, but so far, haven’t actually gotten the illness.

The diabetic neuropathy issues with feet build up over time.

It actually sounds more like my experiences with gout. My right knee swells up and becomes very painful. Hits in hours, can last for days. For most people, gout hits toes, fingers and ankles. Knees are unusual. One joint only is rare.

I’m special!

One of the friends with diabetes also has issues with blood clotting (genetic) and excessive retention and depositing of calcium in his system, both of which can lead to painful leg issues as well.

I realize I only work a few hours a night, but working 7 days a week is a pain. I'm about to take on a second route. Until I get the new route down it'll take more time. I'll be folding roughly 200 papers, and driving 3 to 4 hours. Depending on the night the folding will take 1 to 2.5 hours.

I was called a crackhead tonight. I feel accomplished now. ;) My manager asked for a route to be printed out. She kept saying the wrong number. I kept correcting her.....Turns out *I* was wrong. She was right. We looked at the list that was printed and it was wrong. When she went to get the right one she called me a crackhead.

The whole time we had been laughing our arses off talking about pot. I said we're gonna get drug tested.

With this new job I'll file 1099 tax form. I'm trying to keep track of my milage, and expenses (gas, repairs). I doubt I'll make 20k in a year. Maybe not even half that for this year. Should I worry about keeping this stuff for my taxes? I don't want to get hit with a huge tax bill at the end of the year. I plan to save money for when the tax man cometh.

Computer is going to the repairs tomorrow.

two weeks ago my Photo program was acting up. It wouldn't accept new pictures and then I couldn't open existing photos.

Following week my paint program wouldn't work. I couldn't open them either unless I was "editing".

Now word is getting weird. Trying to force me into header / footers and erasing entire words as I backstep once.

Not good.

Computer should still have an active warrenty for this kind of thing. Key word- "Should".

That is weird. I don't think I've heard of that. Have you tried non Microsoft versions of software to see if you have the same issues?

DRAMA!

Been a bit of event planning whiplash.

One of my cousins has been dating a (very nice) German guy for a couple years now, and they recently got engaged. After consultation with an immigration attorney, they decided to move their plan for getting married in September up to July 6-7th.

My folks had decided to host July 4th celebrations this year. I was already planning my menu...

But with news of the accelerated wedding plans, they invited them and his family to join us, since they would be in town. Alas, his mom is afraid of most dogs...and we have wooves.


So we then offered to bring stuff to the home of the MotB’s house. But the MotB was having a bad day, freaked out by the wedding planning and a pair of MD’s appointments AND her fiancé being in a snit because the other daughter (who dislikes him) is coming...and so is the MotB’s ex- the father to the bride and her sister. So naturally, she too Mom’s offer to help as a trigger to freak out. (This isn’t all that unusual- she has been known to freak out because a leaf fell in early Autumn.) Mom eventually calmed her down.

As the saying goes, though, shiiierrrrrrrr “poop” rolls downhill, so soon afterwards, I got a call from a very angry Bride.

Long story slightly abbreviated, we’ve got reservations for the 4th at a local steakhouse.
