Congrats on the mammoth tusk. There's that.

BigV 02-20-2014 04:00 PM

You had to poke that. Thanks.

orthodoc 02-21-2014 02:18 AM

Poke. Poke. What is the mammoth tusk?

They found one in Seattle during a construction dig. it was just in the news.

Ugh.

First Minifob is sick for going on two weeks now, during which he spent 2 days with a fever over 103 and then another three days with a lesser fever that nonetheless caused him to have to miss school.

Then on his first day back at school, still with a nasty cough but otherwise "well enough" to manage, I wake up feeling like every muscle is simultaneously detaching from my bones, peak at 102.5, and end up sleeping from 3:30 in the afternoon until the next morning.

And now, Minifobette has woken up with a fever, and Mr. Clod says his lymph nodes are swollen. Christ Almighty, I'm tired of this routine. We need to get our quarantine procedures sorted out better.

Just fucking fuck shitballs bollicking fuck oh fuck it.

I'd like to fold my cards and sit this round out. I need to put on my thinking cap and come up with some sort of plan.

I'll be more specific tomorrow when I am at a real keyboard.

BigV 02-23-2014 05:17 PM

O shit

orthodoc 02-23-2014 05:21 PM

Damn, foot. :(

Clodfobble 02-24-2014 05:03 PM

I'm gonna guess that only an ex can make you swear like that. :( Sorry, man.

footfootfoot 02-25-2014 08:07 AM

No, it's worse than the ex. But nearly as frustrating.

I am still having trouble putting the situation into a coherent narrative but the analogy that springs to mind is what happens when you try to plant a bush or tree or other perennial just outside of its range. It will live but not thrive, all the while slowly succumbing to one after another of a relentless steam of opportune pests, diseases, climatic reversals.

Wow sounds like I am living your life too F3. As soon as you think you have breathing room a nice kick in the gut is just around the corner. :greenface

One thing I will share is that our county has fucked up the property taxes around here for the last 6 years. For 3 years they had everyone assessed at 5 x the amount anything was worth. There were disputes and readjustments. We have been paying provisional in some years to get 'caught up' [?] they still owe me money on our house, but this year is special because they want us to pay two years worth on the farm acres in one year :rolleyes:

This too shall pass ... like a kidney stone...:yelsick:

DanaC 02-25-2014 01:43 PM

Ah yes, the drip, drip, drip, kick, drip, drip, kick.

I'm still reeling from the most recent kick.

Twat on a brick, my finances are beyond fucked.

It was Baby's patio.

Lola Bunny 02-25-2014 06:32 PM

I'm so sorry, Foot. I hope things get better.

monster 02-25-2014 11:36 PM

Is there anyone who didn't have a shite on a bike day today? I'm kinda surprised I'm still plodding on but I am .....many, many tax returns due, though :(
