I am a woman of various inclinations and only some of the time are they to burn everything down in frustration

Ryan North is such a gem

I remember the crazy days. 500 posts an hour. Nubmer! Natgbsb

It is my wfh day and Mac is working so I have an empty house and I am feeling like having a slightly low-productive workday and then I see my to do list and wahhh. I want to flake off and take 10-15 minute breaks every hour.

Hmm, Maybe I will put on a movie instead and do as much of the non-thinky work as possible.

OMG, it finally happened.

"Hahaha! I'm always crying at paint!"

Now tagless for your comfort.

Fucking Cancer. Fucking Covid. Fucking Cold.

I'm sorry for folks in job limbo. DH spent six months working for a company that stopped pricing p&c insurance and he hated the way it dragged on. I hope everyone finds something good and has a soft landing.

JZ, my friend here who's cancer who spread to her peritoneum has been going on 10 years. It's been a slog but she's still going. Can you smoke or vape? I don't do well with edibles and tinctures are NAST. I'll tell you what, I have had some milk chocolate sea salt caramel edibles that are the BOMB, though.

I'm having issues getting my new diabetic injectable because of low supply. Apparently semaglutides are the Next Big Thing in weight loss and nobody was prepared for the big demand. It's been so much better for me than Metformin (which gave me the raging trots). My A1-C went from 8.4 back down to 6.5. So I sort of need it.

Susan, once your recovering is done, you will be AMAZED. I don't miss my boobs at all.

She hates the tinctures but the edibles are fine.

In Covid news, Emmett called to tell me that he and his girlfriend Kalena both have Covid. Her manager went off to Vegas and came back coughing all over the office.

I must obey the inscrutable exhortations of my soul—Calvin and Hobbs

I hope Emmett and Kalena have mild, short cases.

Crap, I hope they have mild cases, Hec.

Lisa, that is great about the efficacy but sucks about the supply. I hope the manufacturing catches up to the demand soon.

I am having a super "Squirrel!" day today. Not all bad, but I would like to find some focus. Must be some in a drawer around here somewhere...

Friends don't let friends read "Atlas Shrugged"

I'm having one of THOSE days. I overslept and it went downhill from there.

In happier news - for at least one person on the board - Thursday is National Tater Tot Day. Do celebrate responsibly.

Bob's learned to live with tragedy, but he knows that this tragedy is one that won't ever leave him or get better.

I'm having issues getting my new diabetic injectable because of low supply. Apparently semaglutides are the Next Big Thing in weight loss and nobody was prepared for the big demand.

Grrrrrrr.

Emmett called to tell me that he and his girlfriend Kalena both have Covid. Her manager went off to Vegas and came back coughing all over the office.

That blows. It's infuriating when you know exactly where you got Covid.

She hates the tinctures but the edibles are fine.

Has JZ tried alcohol based or oil based tinctures? I don't like the oil. The alcohol has a mild sting when it's sublingual but I feel like it's better for me.

Congrats, Calli!

Ugh, I'm sorry to hear that. My doctor mentioned semaglutides to me as a possibility to help with my A1C. I punted the medication decision for 6 months while I try some lifestyle changes, but one of my questions around the weight loss aspect was if I'd regain it if I stopped taking it. I'm not sure if demand will go down once the rebound effects are clear or if people will stay on it unnecessarily in order to maintain the weight loss.
