Spike-centric discussion. Lusty, lewd (only occasionally crude), risqué (and frisqué), bawdy (Oh, lawdy!), flirty ('cuz we're purty), raunchy talk inside. Caveat lector.

Polar is magic and I couldn’t tell ya how they make it differently or what sets it apart! It’s just that it tastes delicious to me in a way bubbly water never ever has.

Meara that sounds a lot like shingles. I had tingles and an unsettled stomach for a week before the horrid pain and rash showed up.

Yes, we do plan on being there for Kristin and Drew. We'll make a plan.

I live north of Old Saybrook, so you wouldn't be driving by me in Hartford to get there, but if you fly in, you're welcome to stay/ride with me. If not, I'll see you there.

We'll probably go up to Otter Lake and open the camp around Memorial Day, and drive from there, about 5 hours. It looks like the route from camp goes through Hartford so we will have to coordinate. I don't know my timing yet.

I just tried to “love” Vortex’s post. I’ve got Facebookitus.

Apparently if you're enough of a power nerd, there is nothing that cannot be flowcharted.

I always try to love posts here, or do the laughing reaction. Facebook got me, too.

Hah I do sometimes half try to like a post here.

Weirdly it’s been a week, but the shingles rash has not come, though the skin on my side still hurts. My sister told me it’s sometimes a side effect of the weight loss drugs, which seems weird that it would show up 10-11 months in (and when I went down to a lower dose a month ago!) so I’m not sure what I’m rooting for now! Don’t want weird side effects (some folks online quit the drugs due to it, my sister said she had it happen but it went away in a few days). So just hanging in here while wishing it were warm enough to work topless so I don’t have anything touching my skin.

I keep trying to love posts here, but my muscle memory comes from Tumblr.

Since I still haven’t gotten a rash, it does not seem that I have shingles (and I didn’t fill the prescription) but it’s a week and a half of feeling like my side is badly sunburnt and I don’t like it. Apparently it can be a rare side effect of the weight loss drugs, but I definitely don’t want to go off those. And it might be something else, but investigating seems like an awful lot of potential doctor visits? Ugh. I want it to just go away so I can ignore it some more. (It’s not too bad most of the time but when clothes brush against it, ow).

Does shingles always present with a rash, or can it just be nerve ending touchy? It seems to me that some people don't get a rash with it, just the pain.

I accidentally blocked someone because I just clicked on the link next to the post in muscle memory.
