One of these medical alert companies has clients who call them up every day "just to chat." Of course, the employees just love this and aren't saying to each other, "Oh, shit! It's Granny again. You take it this time! I'm going on break."

I managed to whack myself in the head with a box of paper yesterday. And before you start laughing at me it's 1100 sheets of the big kind, it's maybe 50 pounds. I hoisted it up on my shoulder and then tried to re-adjust and it just sorta clocked me in the neck. On one hand it kinda gave me an adjustment because my neck had been slept on weird but now I have a headache at the base of my skull. But I woke up alive so I guess I'm not too concussed.

Adult diaper commercials make you feel like the most important thing is that they're "pretty" or no panty lines...nope it'd be the trail of pee that I'm trying to avoid. Just to be clear I have been potty trained a goodly number of years and it hasn't left me yet, in case you're sensing a pattern. I only wet my pants once in my life, 1st grade, we had a long bus ride and Mrs. McKnight wouldn't let me go in the building to go pee, you had to stay outside at recess until the bell rang. So I held it as long as I could and then had to go to the nurse and get a bath and they loaned me some cute underwear with flowers on them that I didnt want to give back.

and if you're lucky I can tell you some barfing stories from school too! :D

I was having this problem and spent the last week in the hospital for a stroke. They gave me a super blood thinner which seems to have worked since the MRI showed no brain damage but my arm is one big bruise.

Oh, and my cat died yesterday RIP Nelson 8/17/01 - 8/28/19.

HOLY SHITBALLS! My heavens, are you ok? So sorry to hear about your cat but I hope you're taking good care of yourself. Be very careful not only because I don't want you to fall again but also on the super blood thinners you can bleed lots if you cut yourself shaving your legs.

Duuuuuuuuuuuude, if I had a major trauma nobody be having to ask me to slow down. I'm already trying to milk my smack in the head as brain damage to get out of stuff. I walk around alllllllllll the time pretending my arms or legs don't work.

Sit down and make somebody bring you lemonade.

@AngelKitty - so sorry you’re going through all this, but so glad you’re still here to tell us about it.  And my condolences on the loss of your Nelson; this looks to be a shitty year for fur babies.  😞

OH, my goodness AngelKitty. 😟 This is awful. Sincere sympathy for your sweet Nelson. I know too well how much these losses hurt.

I had a stroke, too, about 9 years ago. I know just what you're going through. One thing I learned after it was to listen to my body. I ended up resting and dozing for hours every afternoon on my recliner. My body insisted I do that and I didn't fight it even though I was quite young and distressed at not being able to do all the stuff I normally do. I advise you not to either. This is how you heal. If you need to rest or nap, do it. That bruise is wicked.

And if you need physical therapy (as I did for partial paralysis on my right side) it's imperative to start immediately or your brain can permanently forget how to send the signals. I made a complete recovery and here's sincerely hoping the same for you!

Yeah, the blood thinners. I take only one 1/2 strength aspirin every day, but if I even get a paper cut I look like I'm in the middle of a crime scene. 😂

Awww, "Zombieland" was a perfect movie. They have to cheapen it with this sequel/money grab? The only sequel I personally ever saw that equaled the original was "Terminator 2" .

I just thought of another one.  "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan" was WAY better than the first movie.

It didn't quite have the scare factor of the original, when the captain was in the vent ducts with the little flame gun and motion sensor, it was so simple yet genuinely frightening, Aliens was about as good as a sequel can get though.

I agree about Khan, although the so obviously fake chest took some getting past.

The thing is, the chest was really his. No fakery at all.  He did quite a bit of bodybuilding and remained fit.

Well he's definitely got some definition in the photos, whether its 'Khan' definition i'm not so sure. Admittedly its been many, many years since I saw the film, but the overriding memory of his chest is that it didn't seem to move, it didn't flex or twitch, that may well be the years playing with the memory, ill reserve judgement until I can watch it again, but kudos to the guy if that was all him.

Jack LaLanne had an amazing physique even at 70, as does Chuck Norris and Stephen Lang, who is in his late 60's I believe. Ricardo was younger than either of them at 62, and was into fitness and working out long before it became mainstream. I recall reading (although I have no source at the moment) that he wanted to wear that outfit as he was rightfully proud of his body.  Ricardo Montalban was an amazing person in every way, IMO.:)

Its not the first time I've used UTube to look for peoples chests, but most definitely the first looking for a mans, and after much 'Khan' searching i'll have to detract my "so obviously fake" comment, apologies Ricardo old boy!

My favourite Ricardo moment was when he was on the Tonight Show, the night Carson destroyed that charlatan uri geller (lower case), although he did slightly help geller slip slide out of it, and he was wearing an awful blue safari suit. 😱

It's a joy to behold watching the scumbag squirm, but he always manages to slime his way out of a situation.

nothing more fun than prepping for a hurricane. Not evacuating, in fact I'm at work. Apparently we defy mother nature. We will get wind and rain and possibly lose power but not the brunt of the storm. Good luck to everyone in Dorian's path!

There are several teams that I hope you are on, Caterpillars, please tell me their boat looks like a caterpillar. Nashville Paddle Company, from their description they seem fun. and the unbelievably bad surfers. These are the teams I'm rooting for. Maybe Stroke of Genius.

No, you have to understand how I dragonboat.  110% ?  Fuck THAT shit, and kiss my ass.  In years past I’ve been known to destroy the left side of my body in the (approximately) minute and twenty seconds it takes to run a heat - and come back in the very next heat paddling on the right side.  And then spend 4-6 months in PT rehabbing the damage, just to turn around and do the same thing all over again next year.  I prefer to grease the bottom of my boat with the bodies of my unlucky victims, and I have been known to propel my team to division championships through the sheer power of profane cadence calls.

Uh - I have a certain amount of a competitive streak, you see....

R.I.P. Eddie Money.

Another great musician has died.

I never saw him in concert, but with the passing of another real talent it makes me sad to know that all talent in the future will be homogenized, manufactured "artists"  who spew regurgitated pap and who are chosen for success because they have great teeth and hair and have passed the extreme gauntlet of Simon Cowel, Ellen Degeneres and Gloria Estefan's thumbs up or down. And they weep and cry. How they cry!

I can't help but wonder how well Bob Dylan or Janis Joplin, e.g. would have fared before these esteemed, insightful and critical judges of their talent. I mean, neither of them were traditiionally pretty or had 10k of orthodontist work, so I'm sure Simon would have hated them.

Yeah, I'm a curmudgeon. So what?

A week from now, TWD starts up again.  You might want to put down the wine.  On second thought, I might just start drinking.   This upcoming season couldn't possibly be as bad as last season.   It just couldn't.  Yeah, who am I kidding.  Expect the worst and hope for the best.

Without wine and this forum I see no reason to watch this insulting drivel. I mean, if TPTB apologized before the opener and said, "We're sorry. We know this is utter shit but it's honestly the best we can do!" might engender some pity. However, the crowing, chest-beating and self-congratulations they do over what they present makes even a non-violent person want to just punch them, hard. Really hard.

"Blessed is he who expects nothing for he shall never be disappointed." I guess "he" never watched this show. Even when you expect the worst, they still find new ways to disappoint you. 🙄 But hey - hate-watching or watching just to snark and mock, we're still watching and that's all the adverti$er$ care about. Fool am I.

My sister has left the building, Elvis style. Not like on a toilet or anything. I don't mention most real life things mostly because I don't wanna bring anybody down. Luckily my story involves the other sister...So I went from 2 sisters to 0. They lived together in Texas, one (Evil) was technically the caregiver for the eldest (goodone) but really she was just a mooch that has done nothing her entire life. Things were coming to a close for the goodone and I was not unaware, however, I guess I misjudged things. The goodone is still indicating that's she's kicking and shouldn't let Evil write her off just yet. So I get a phone call and Evil is speaking in past tense. I'm all "hold up" and yes indeed this addle brained ninny had not informed me for 17 hours! SEVENTEEN HOURS. I'm screaming because we fought over should I get in the car on Thursday or why in the ever living fuck would you not tell me when it happened? She keeps claiming this is how it was supposed to be. I get in the car and haul ass to Texas. Evil is completely out of her mind. I always knew she was "extra" but always assumed her crazy was manufactured, turns out she's super duper crazy. Purposely went off her meds for the "occasion" so she could make it even more special hell. She's hearing voices, missions from god, keeps talking stupid stupid nonsense at the church and tries to turn my sisters service into some kind of weird online intervention to prevent child abuse. We keep saying over and over this has nothing to do with Goodone and it isn't Evil's funeral. She's wailing and just carrying on confessing to 30 year old crimes and just generally driving everyone crazy.

On the plus side I don't even get to think about being sad about the goodone. On the downside she takes off in the car with a dog and no dog food and we don't know where she's going or how she's gonna get there and no glasses. Ranting on facebook for 3 days about being in a hotel but never saying where until finally we figure out where she is. 3 am have to go haul her stupid ass back, we don't know if she's ruined the car, keeps talking about a tow truck but there's nothing wrong with the car, she was just going to surrender it as "evidence" of all the crimes...she was undercover with the senior citizens center and all the cameras collected all the evidence. omg it went on and on.  We took the keys away from her and told her if she doesn't take her meds she doesn't get to drive and I told her I'll never forgive her. Took care of business as best I could and came home to promptly get sick as a dog. Now I have to figure out what to do with nutball, who is as dead to me as the goodone. believe it or not this is the really really short version.

Sorry you're going through this, nachomama. I have a sister I haven't seen in 20 years, and have no idea if she's dead or alive. I tried to find her, with no luck, but even if I did, I can't have an alcoholic in my life so I let it go. Sometimes that's all we can do.

Our only contact for the last 30 years has been through the good one. Only seen her in person 4 years ago when goodone had open heart surgery. She would come and go, wind up in shelters and I truly lost no sleep over her. I’m the executor for goodone so I will perform my duties and hopefully good riddance. Before I left Texas we did try to have her committed. She was willing to go but she’s not covered and apparently not dangerous enough. My sister left her a car, house and property. I said don’t fuck it up and don’t ever show up on my doorstep cuz I sure as shit ain’t taking you in. 

We also finally know where my niece is! She hadn’t been in touch with her mom (goodone) in almost 20 years. My niece is only 4 years younger than me. My sister was 15 years older than me. My niece is doing 8 years in federal prison for methamphetamine trafficking. Sigh. We are just such stellar people. So I’m writing prison letters now. Wheeeeeee! Currently I have ringing in my ears, a cough and apparently very low on potassium. I just want to sleep for a week. Ain’t happening.

MeTV has started airing the Flintstones as of yesterday. 

I hope at some point someone airs the original Jonny Quest.

I would imagine that if MeTV has ratings success with the Flintstones, then chances are they would try and bring on more cartoons.   I would imagine that the Flintstones will be quite popular.

Had to buy Evil a tire yesterday. Good grief, it's like dealing with a toddler. She has absolutely no shame in begging the church for anything and everything. Air conditioning went out and she's on the phone "We're gonna need a new a/c" as if that's what the church does is just hand them out. Does she think the benevolent society just has her name written on it? When I asked her what SHE should/could be doing to solve these problems...she told me she has a connection with Sharon Osbourne on "The Talk". She's going to write to Sharon, Ellen and Kelly and Ryan because they'll help her. They want to do a show from a viewer's home, she's a mental health patient and her voice needs to be heard. I'm thinking more like a job or filing government paperwork. Lordy mercy I don't even know what I'm gonna do with her.

I never really liked Jonny Quest, it was too sciency. More like learny tv not cartoons.

@nachomama - sorry about the sister you lost, and the sister you didn’t.

I spent this past weekend up in Louisville with my oldest daughter, her boyfriend, my wife’s college roommate, and a few thousand close personal friends of ours:
