Off-topic discussion. Wanna talk about corsets, duct tape, butt kicking, or physics? This is the place. Detailed discussion of any current-season TV must be whitefonted.

"I'm useless alone." // "We're all useless alone. It's a good thing you're not alone."

I frankly don’t know where/how to talk about it as an old.

The other option would be Discord.

Better late than never ----- It is Happy Birthday Gudanov Day!! Happy birthday, Gud. You are truly loved and appreciated round these parts and I hope you are having a wonderful day.

I am just on computer for the first time today. Was up early ironing vinyl numbers on uniforms and driving to Kissimmee for basketball. In one of our 3 cabins. The boys are all doing their thing. I am alone with 2 doggos. I bought a ton of snack stuff at BJ's and split it up into 3 piles for the 3 cabins. Apples, oranges, bananas, fig bars, granola bars, trail mix, cheese and peanut butter filed crackers, cheese sticks, potato chips, fruit juices, sports drinks. When they get back tonight around 10 they will have mac 'n cheese and crunchy chicken strips. The snacks they can shove in backpacks for eating between games or whatever. Teen athletes eat a whole lot. The coaches took them all the BK when we got here. I think we are going to have 1 adult per cabin and 6 kids each. Fun times. Right?

For the second time in two months, someone has sent/showed me someone else's medical information. The first time was an idiot at my ex-neurologist. Now, someone has sent, to my fannish address, faxed medical records. WTF, people?

Fandom means never having to say "But where would I wear that?"

Timelies all!

Happy Birthday Gud!

Today has been somewhat better than yesterday, but still not great.

I used to have the phone number that used to be for someone who got a lot of telemarketer calls for vacation shares but also from their cardiologists office reminding them of appointments. I would call back and try to tell the office it wasn't the number but they kept calling.

Jesus, I emailed the guy and told him he had the wrong person, and he doubled down on me. I had to pull out the phrase "personally identifiable information".

See? I gave everybody here an opportunity to tell me what a bad person I am and nobody did, because I fuckin' rule.

I 1000% do not understand Discord at all. Multiple people have explained to me multiple times how it works and how to find the discussions I want, but I am still an idiot.

Cats to become a rabbit should gather immediately now here

I will admit I also don’t really get Zoom Chat or Teams. I sort of get one or the other, but I somehow have to be on both at work. Can’t you just email me? In theory, if I only had one, I think I would learn it- but IT uses teams and the rest of the school is mandated to be on Zoom chat! At least Teams eventually emails me so I notice it!

I think I tried Discord at the beginning of the pandemic and couldn’t figure it out.

I have confidence I could figure any of these things out if I really wanted to, but it is like, too much work for something I want to be fun!

Thank you JZ for inviting me to a Facebook group! That I can handle
