I just like the way the word sounds in a brogue. I like the way you spell it better, too, Sassenach. Whats it mean? Nm.... Googled:

The Gaelic term for a Saxon. Survives in modern day Ireland and Scotland as a derogatory term for an English person.

Where I live the derogatory term for an English person is "bloody English".

Let me try to get this straight. Limey is a sassenach and that's similar to sasquatch?? Limey - what size shoe do you wear?





Note: This is only trying to make a joke about similar words. From the pictures I have seen of Limey, I know she is quite lovely

Size 10 US. What is a sasquatch?
Just googled it. Yes, we have sasquatch in the family tree. Both my brothers' feet are/were size 16 US ...

Limes! The tea arrived today!
I thought you meant you'd bought me tablets (which as I said I have plenty of).

I'm nearly out of tea though.
You angel.

And of all the people in the world, I know you'd never buy me fennel tea (which is a common one for weightloss/ cleansing/ liver detox.)

One of these days I really will write Cherry's List of Common Foods Which are Intolerable.
I'm sure it will be fascinating.

I've been waiting for a £3.20 cardigan from eBay. It's teal green and fluffy. I'm gutted. It was sent on 4th Jan. The seller has offered me a refund. I think she may have kept it for resale given the bargain basement price I got. Anyway, Dad was all excited on my behalf - the thought it had arrived. He was susrpised when I wasn't upset.

But hey, if you see a fluffy teal green cardigan, do wrestle the wearer to the ground and demand to see a proof of purchase.

And thank you. Very kind and much appreciated.

Fennel is disgusting! I think the tea contains mint and nettle, both of which you said you liked. I find herb teas are quite nice cold. But this evening I had a mug of cocoa. Proper cocoa

I am waiting-somewhat impatiently-for my valium to be refilled.

can't get a refill till the 24 or so which seems like bullshit if I'm paying for it myself.

How do you get a continuous prescription for valium (or xanax)? The doctors at my clinic will not do it for me. All I want to do is take a half pill every now and then before bedtime to take the edge off a really bad day.

Shoot, I get 10 mgms of Ambien and 2 mgms of Clonopin everyday. I can get an increased dosage by just asking. The VA is turning us all into addicts.

Serious note - if you are out of Valuim, you can make a "Camp Hit" coctail from legal ingredients. Take a shot glass. Add 2 full doses of liquid Nyquil. Throw in 3-5 tablets of Melatonin. Open 4 capsules of Benadryl (100 mgm) and pour it in. I'm serious about this. This concoction was routinely used until they deployed the Combat Stress Teams

Sarge, you have specific indications for your meds. For most of us, ongoing scripts for benzodiazepines are a bad idea. They're Schedule 4 drugs, addictive, and the devil to get off. (Xanax is so bad - very short half-life - that many psychiatrists refuse to prescribe it at all.)

I was previously on a Xanax and Valuim regimen. I completely agree that the VA over medicates us and after almost 7 years, I do have a high tolerance. Plus, I shamefully admit to adding alcohol lately to enhance the effects. I am definitely a poor role model

Pico - that is a real concoction we used in 2005 in Al Anbar Province
