Walking I get. But power walking? Why not just run for a shorter time?

I wish I could just go somewhere to get flensed but none of the whaling ships near me take Medicare.

Thanks for that costume link, Kat.

Went to bed early last night with a splitting headache. Headaches used to be rare with me but they are becoming more frequent and severe. Probably peanuts compared to what some people here suffer, so I should be grateful.

I've got some bad ergonomics going on which is causing increased RSI pain and might be contributing to headaches. I have to figure out how to fix that.

There's a free life drawing session today and I'm hoping to borrow the car to get to it. While it's not all that far away by LA standards, the transfer from Metro Rail to bus looks hard to manage and esp hard to manage in only 9 min.

Well, good news and bad news about the dogs new meds.

They won't be NEARLY as expensive as at the vet because, apparently, the vet's "dispensing fee" DOUBLES the price.

Seriously? No.

I like that this vet does the bloods while I wait so, as long as I'm in the area I'll likely keep going there. And I get that there is going to be a fee... but DOUBLE?!? Nuh uh. Not cool.

It's five thousand for kissing, ten thousand for snuggling... End of list.

Does anyone have the CI/ATK chicken stock recipe where you brown chicken pieces and bones and an onion first? I lent my book out and have needed it like 10x in the past week.

I just went to Sears to buy a fridge to replace my very old one. I intended to get one that was pretty well the same size as my compact fridge, but the shelves seemed really pokey and small. So I bought one that was bigger and more than I intended to pay. However I am getting $90 in rebates b/c I bought and energy star fridge and the local power co will pick up my old fridge and give me $35 for it. So it all evens out.

I cannot even think about the %$$%#$ baseball game last night. I will not listen to the game today, they have lost every game I listen to, so no more.

I slept in 'til 8 too.

It still amuses me that I think of that as sleeping in.

You would not believe the energy savings! My fridge, which is at least 20 years old says it runs on 104 KwH per MONTH, and that was when it was new and running well. The new fridge's Energuide rating is 383 KwH per YEAR. The PowerCo's energy Calculator says I'll save approx. $125 a year on power bills.

That's what I try to explain to people when they ask why I do not use the vintage pink fridge as my fridge. Dude, it is close to 50 years old with no upgraded parts.
