Annubis, the swelling is not that dramatic, fortunately. Besides, I figure that's something even my GP would have noticed.

I'd say cool it with the 3 hours of daily exercise? That seems a bit excessive to me. But then I'm a lazy slob so take my athletic advice with a grain of salt.

It's nothing intense, mostly 20km/h cycling with some 25km/h here and there. And it's not all at once either. It's mostly divided into 30-60 minute chunks (unless there's some anime to binge watch, hurray for my exercise bike!).

Besides, isn't this what's supposed to be a normal amount of moving around?

Chair height, make sure it's just right so that your feet are resting on the floor but not pushing against it. Also make sure that there's no pressure applied to your joints which would bend them in a way they aren't supposed to (like resting your foot on its edge that will apply minimal sideways pressure to your knee). Lastly, get up and have a little walk when you feel your legs getting stiff, maybe do a little stretching to get the blood circulating.

Yep, I got that all right. Well, actually, I haven't tried the stretching yet. I'll try that, thanks :)


Also make sure you are staying hydrated. Not just water, but electrolytes and stuff. I know when I get dehydrated my fingers swell up to look like sausages. Delicious delicious sausages.

This thread is always a fun read. Good luck on your dating prospects, Agent D.~

Anyways, I've been sick as a dog for two days now. :( I think it may just be allergies (The pollen count is rediculous in my area right now, especially the mold spore count, according to Weather.com), which makes it worse since I could just wake up tomorrow and be all better, only to get worse the day after. This time of year really blows. I'm missing work today, too, and I finally got on Cashier training this week...

And to think, the last time I got an allergy test, they said I didn't have any allergies. Then how do they explain the hives when I have artificial sweeteners or Penicillin? Or the congestion I get every spring? Of course I have allergies. The freakin' idiots probably dropped the vial and didn't fess up. It's not like I wouldn't have taken the test again if they asked. I would've been annoyed, but you know what's more annoying? Having to wear a yellow and black shirt outside and avoiding all the freakin' bees because I have no idea if I'm allergic or not, and I'm not about to find out the hard way...

Allergies can come and go. I am no longer as allergic to grass pollen, but I went from testing reactive to only three things to testing reactive to everything that's not a bee or food :-/  My friend had a mild reaction to shellfish in the past almost passed out from being unable to breathe when his allergy flared up and reacted much worse than previously.

An old test might no longer be accurate or maybe you had a good day histamine-wise

This is very true. Your allergies tend to shift and change every 7-13 years. I am no longer allergic to peanuts or seafood, but I am now allergic to chicken.


I have been sick for the last week. I had a fever and chest congestion. I do not like it. It is the first time I have been regular sick in a couple years.

I work 6am-2:30pm and I love it. I personally think second shift is terrible. Yes you get to sleep in, but you spend the day getting ready or wondering what time it is because you have to go to work. I get up early anyway, so my schedule, which I get to make myself, is perfect for me.

Holy fuck... I'd shit myself then saw off my hand.  Akira-levels of gross, but, y'know, real.

That person is now one of the hive-mind.

Finally finished setting down the back patio and redoing the mulch. That is a lot of work. I am not equipped to do that much work.

UGH. My car just had to be towed to the shop. I was driving and lost power briefly, like for a second my music and everything cut out. Then suddenly several lights are on on my dash and my car doesn't have any get up and go. At least it is under warranty but I am without a car for the moment.

the new doritos flavor, spicy street taco, is for shit.

That sounds like shit

Jus' pimpin' and hoe'in right Annubis?

I wish... I've yet to stamp the V-card.

When it comes to this, I think it's good to take a page from The 40 Year Old Virgin: That's awesome, that means you don't have any STDs and that shit is scary as hell.  When it happens I'm sure it'll be dope because you're fantastic and I've loved corresponding with this place...in, well, the capacity we do... =/

I didn't share all my breakups and dating stuff in this thread. A few though. Looking back on them... Wow. Haha. If I had shared all there would be one every few pages. At least now I am in a good one.

I'm pretty fortunate, I got one of those 'don't look back' dispositions (except about that one super-embarassing thing I did that if I take the time to remember keeps me up at night...like all 8 things).

But anyways, I sent this to a buddy after a breakup and I think it's a good attitude to take on after one (I'm not trying to comfort you and it's awesome you're in a good one now, do tell stories if anything awesome happens):




I gave the new bf (I wonder how long the grace period is on that) a sauerkraut kiss once. He didn't appreciate it, so I can only conclude he's a fake German.

ARGH  That's why there's all these trips to Germany!  I thought it was for frequent vacations..like it was so fun the first time, let's go again...*naive*
But that's fantastic to here!

And go figure, I'm cool with a garlic kiss.  I do enjoy garlicky food and if a girl digs it too, I'm alright with the garlic kiss. 

Not a fan of the Dorito kiss, or the skunky beer kiss.  Haven't made out with anyone from the deep south, so I don't know how bad a chitlin kiss is- though I hear it can be unpleasant. 

Holy moly, we could talk about our favorite flavors of kisses all day.  And no jokes about Hershey Kiss chocolates! 

When it comes to other smells, I like when a girl's hair smells like nice shampoo.  It's a clean smell I can dig.  I can't stand heavy perfume, though.  I think a lot of that hides natural smells we're drawn to.  It's like with dogs- they can instantly know if another dog is cool by sniffing butts.  It's like "not my smell... not my smell... AHH, THAT one's my smell."  Like if a person smells a certain way, we're just more drawn to them, ya know?  It's clear that I'm into clean scents, like certain shampoos and clean laundry.

The only kiss I hate is smoking kiss...bleh.  But is actually just "kissing too much", by the end of the day your breath smells like eggs, it's naast.

And I tootally agree about the perfume bit.  A person's natural smell is an odd draw (pheromones?), some perfume is nice (it makes you want to get closer when there's just a bit), but when people cake that shit on it's effect is ironically the exact opposite.

I DRAW AND WORK, I HAVE NO COOL STORIES.


Yeah I typically don't care about the relationship soon after. I meant when I looked back at this thread. I posted quite a bit about them haha

The more I learn about the story of the show The Flash the more I want to know. This last episode was ridiculous and Harrison Wells is one of my favorite characters.

Local used game store sold me a wireless PS3 controller without a battery...  I figured this out after 3-4 hours of forum searching that didn't help at all. Of course, the answer was WAY more obvious than anything anyone on a tech message board was going to come up with.

So I just spent the last 2 hours opening up 2 six axis controllers and taking the good battery out of my old bad controller and putting it into my new (ripoff) one.

I could have just waited until tomorrow and taken the thing back I guess.



You could always bring back the one that you switched the battery out of...

Wow. That Flash episode Tuesday night, "Out of Time." Absolutely crazy. Usually in most 23 episode-season run series the writers stretch out plotlines over the season. I felt like that episode had major implications for the future of the show. Without spoiling too much for RPGfans who haven't seen the show or particularly the episode aired this week we'll just say time travel will play a major role in future episodes to come. The tricky thing is how will the writers write/re-write the timeline to come without confusing and frustrating fans of the show and comic with having to keep track of timelines. Also, with the recently announced The Flash/Arrow spinoff... I wonder if they'll try to resolve plotlines there. Although... who knows when they'll film it and release the pilot episode.

This has become one of my favorite shows. It is amazing. I am super excited to see Captain Cold in the new show since he one of the characters spinning off. He is played amazingly well in this iteration. A bad guy with an interesting set of values and a code. Will he be an unlikely hero in the new show as he is in the comics at times, or will they continue to make him a villain?


Also something I am curious about-

Code:
Will Caitlin become Killer Frost at some point since Caitlin Snow is one of the people that has been Killer Frost through the years in the comics?
12  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / DQM:Joker 2 question on: April 10, 2015, 03:50:39 PM
So there were to versions in Japan. Which one was released in the US? Was it the professional with the extra monsters or the original? I can't find any reference.

I got a New 3ds XL for my birthday and I am trying to find some good games for it. I have previously had a 3ds and played the Fire Emblem games and FFTA games.  I am trying to find something good that is either strategy or a good story based turn based RPG. Anyone have any recommendations?
14  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: March 26, 2015, 03:05:18 PM
So, uh...

Apparently my stepdad's father went crazy and tried to kill his wife before killing himself. This was my afternoon today.

Yeah...

Though let this be a lesson. Plenty of people could have seen this coming but chose not to. I've met the man multiple times and it was super apparent he was losing his marbles. I don't care how close you are to your elders, dementia is not something to be taken lightly. If you see the signs, get them help.

My cousin did this a few years ago...except he did kill his wife and then himself, leaving their daughter without parents. It is a weird and rough experience. Especially if you are close to them. I felt a lot of anger towards him for doing that, more than I felt grief for it happening.

That's harsh.
Is it a chain? As in, any hope of some few being relocated to another store?

Well, it's Gamestop so while that option is available, most of us aren't going to go that route for various reasons. The most important is that Gamestop does barely any hiring outside of October, so anywhere we go we'd be an extra cog and have to earn our hours all over again. For me it's more difficult. I don't drive, and this store is the only one in walking distance. There's public transportation, but outside of the city proper it's pretty unreliable and even then it's not worth it for a part-time job.

The whole situation is just asshole bussinessman being asshole businessmen. Our landord is being an asshole and not renewing our lease because the store next to us, Olympia Sports, is being an asshole and paying more for our storefront so they can expand their store. Then corporate is being an asshole by not wanting to spend the money to furnish a new location.

It's okay, though, because they just pissed a lot of people off. Our main clientele is from Marblehead, a small town of extremely rich folks from old money. The two closest Gamestops to ours are either next to a Walmart or in Lynn, a town most people consider to be a bit of a ghetto.

Crazy. I was the manager in Sudbury, MA years ago and before that I was the manager at Solomon Pond Mall. Oh the memories.
