Hey, if it means I don't have to read any more, woo and, might I add, a big hoo.

Every now and then, I think I might actually be a little odd.

Top Ten! New thread smell!

Now to catch up with the tall end of the pervious thread.

The real axe murderers were the friends we made along the way

Argh. This thing came up as a possibility for my biggest account two months ago, at which time I was told they needed to gather more information before testing whether it would go forward. Today I found out it's live and apparently has been for a while. The person I went and asked about it sent out an email this afternoon saying "I know I confirmed this in passing/verbally but never sent an email since [...Reasons...]That being said I felt compelled to confirm in an email" and left me off the distribution.

Blinvisible. Not a concept I think I can explain to my leadership team.

ETA but my complain-y post goes to eleven, so that's something.

Days shrink and grow cold, sunlight through leaves is my song. Winter is long.

Sorry, -t.

Top dozen, at least?

When they made this particular hero, they didn't give him a gun, they gave him a screwdriver to fix things. They didn't give him a tank or a warship or an X-wing fighter, they gave him a call box from which you can call for help. And they didn't give him a superpower or pointy ears or a heat ray. They gave him an extra heart. They gave him two hearts. And that's an extraordinary thing. There will never come a time that we don't need a hero like the Doctor.

From the previous thread:

billytea, not sure how useful this will be, but it's cute! Every Hamilton song summarized in one sentence:

That is fun. Unfortunately, I think I would take longer explaining the summaries to Biyi than I would explaining the actual songs.

GS: If you had to choose between kicking evil in the head or the behind, which would you choose, and why? Minsc: I'm not sure I understand the question. I have two feet, do I not? You do not take a small plate when the feast of evil welcomes seconds.

So apparently making a down payment before an operation is a thing some hospitals are doing now?

I fired my old GI because he was useless and the new one (understandably) wants to take a look at my innards and see what's going on rather than relying on Dr. Clueless' observations. I just got a call from the new hospital to get everything in order for the procedure and at the end of the call they informed me there would be a $150 fee upfront when I checked in tomorrow morning.

I was taken completely off-guard, but some Googling says that this is becoming a more common thing. You'd think they would have mentioned it when I originally scheduled the procedure two weeks ago.

Wow, that is pretty fucked up.

I had to put down a $600 deposit before orthapedic surgery in 2014 :/ And of course only had, like, 200 and change left on my flex spending card and had to use 2 cards to pay it.

And separately, I hope the surgery is easy and recovery smooth and your new doc finds out some useful stuff that helps you out.
