  1. "Enchiladas," Jill? You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
  2. Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    I think it would be a very nice gesture. And if you want maybe you could also ask at that time if there is a particular charity that would be meaningful.
  3. Small Talk: Chewing the Fat

    In case you missed this, Clinton, Carla, and Michael are going to do a Facebook live thing next Monday.

    Washable pee pads have thus far worked for us. My sister has a 12 year-old kitty who is a bit dim and has never managed to hit the litterbox. She uses the throw-away kind of pee pads and he has adapted just fine. We have three litterboxes for three kitties and fortunately, the younger two kitties have only looked askance at the pee pads Hillary is using, rather than joining the party. I love her and I will keep her happy as long as she feels well and is enjoying life, as you implied as well. Hang in there.

    Oh geez, do I hear this. My 18.5 year-old kitten has gotten cantankerous in her old age. I saw her pee on our inside doormat several months ago, took her to the vet, and everything is fine other than early-stage kidney disease (pretty inevitable at her age). She kept targeting the doormat, so I took it up. She changed to a wool rug in our half bath. Argh. I have gone the can't-beat-'em-join-'em route and now have washable pee pads in our foyer, which she has adopted (I do think she is still using the litterbox sometimes). If we don't have houseguests for X-mas, I think we will relent and put a litterbox in our guest bath on the top floor so she doesn't have to go down two floors to get to it (she is not infirm, just old and sometimes lazy. And my lovebug.).

    Egads. My then-boyfriend took me to prom in a bright orange gremlin. Should have taken the hint and dumped him right there.

    Oh, @Nysha, I'm so sorry. I hope that at the very least you find out what has happened sooner rather than later.
  8. I have the same issue with Icebreakers mints and I used to love them. Took some detective work to figure out they were the problem. I thought it was just me.
  9. That's what I wondered. He looks like he lost a mustard fight. And I nearly didn't recognize Jill without her trademark bug eyes and open mouth. She looks normal in this pic, which made me realize that she generally does not.

    I agree with the recommendation for AdBlock. Works like a charm. The first car I bought myself was a used Mazda 626 with 118,000 miles on it. Bought it for $2500 and drove that thing for close to a decade. I was hoping to get enough miles on it to have driven to the moon but it was not going to pass California's smog regulations without more money than I was willing to put into it. My sister has a Mazda 3 that she likes and she is TOUGH on cars. So my experiences have been good. Not that you asked, but I would never, repeat NEVER buy an Audi. We had an all-wheel drive Audi that had just random stupid things wrong with it all the time (like a rear window that just decided not to stay closed--and there are only two of us; we never even used the rear window), chewed through tires, and guzzled oil. Never again. (but I've been converted to Tesla...)

    On a shallow note, I loved Meredith's coat.

    I thought he was written and/or acted as though he had some sort of intellectual disability. I guess I just assumed that from the way he was portrayed.
  13. House Hunters: Buying in the USA

    I did not like the dimwit in Ocean City . She was all concerned about stairs because of "how much stuff our kids have"--and whose fault is that? Then she was all stressed about her kids throwing themselves off the roof deck. It's called natural selection, dumbass. Why do kids have to be wrapped in cottonwool these days? <shakes cane>
  14. The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    My mom did the same. Whenever she found out someone was pregnant, she would start on knitting them something. She died 11 years ago today. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to remember this.

    I had all four of my wisdom teeth out at once in my late thirties. None of them were any kind of weird and I did not have trouble afterward, really. I agree with the advice to have someone available to take you home and pick up your drugs. Get some of those re-freezable ice packs. I had a tooth extracted 1.5 weeks ago and was really apprehensive about it but the recovery turned out to be not bad at all. Did not even have to use the prescription pain meds.
