    I know next-to-nothing about Star Trek Discovery nor The Last Jedi(s) and I have no desire to taint my experience in seeing them for the first time with preconceived notions.

    I honestly wish there were a way of advertising movies so as not to give ANYTHING about them away. Wait, I think Deadpool found a workaround (well, I guess it WAS a romance)...

    I knew nothing about The Force Awakens nor Rogue One. I may have skipped out on TFA if I'd known. Rogue One was mildly surprising.

    Don't tone down your humor or be afraid to be a little different. People will eventually come to see and accept you. When I first started I think people thought I was a troll. Once your around awhile people start to see people's quirks and are usually okay with them.

    My random thought is I am going crazy with my OCD need to constantly remind anything I am watching on tv if I feel like I didn't see a scene or moment just, right.

    I have basically gotten this idea in my head that I am going to be dead in 10 years and everything I watch has to be be watched perfectly since I might never see it again in my life.

    Thanks.

    I've come to realize that living a sheltered life, basically as a hermit for the last 15 years, has been seriously detrimental to my social skills, not that I ever was much of a conversationalist.

    Random thought: I'll be trying grits later today for the first time in my life.

    I am right now I got a fever and I keep bouncing between feeling okay to wanting to vomit. I always get nervous when I get sick because I am not someone who can vomit with dignity. I always seem to miss my mark.
    The upside is I watched the TNG ep "True Q" and I think my sickness sort of depowered my nerd cynicism because I thought it was great for maybe the first time I have ever felt when watching the ep and even the movie"Masterminds" which I watched on Netflix seemed okay. Plus when I get sick I tend to go into full blown drama queen mode.

    If I was living in a 80's style sitcom I would be the person sick in bed with a bell that I keep ringing when I need something and everyone ends up getting annoyed at you.

    One other thing is it's rainy and stormy outside and I always like that. It always makes being at home feel cozy to me. Just as along as the power stays on, of course.

    I don't think anyone can really vomit with dignity. :barf:

    I had to Google that. I take Actos (generic name Pioglitazone*) for my Type II diabetes. It doesn't have that particular side effect.

    *That's okay, most doctors can't pronounce it either.

    Since taking Invokana again I've been having a difficult time regulating my blood glucose. It's been damn near dangerous because I can't tell the difference between when I'm high and when I'm low anymore so I kind of assume that when I'm hot and clammy that I'm high and when I'm cold and clammy I'm low. Nope, several times I was roasting and downright sweaty and thought I needed to take insulin, so did, only to test myself and find that I'm a little low. Shit, time to eat.

    It's my bad habit to take insulin and then test. It should be the other way around. It's what keeps getting my dad into trouble. I think my mom has that issue sometimes, as well.

    I just got done eating McDonald's without taking insulin. I forgot for about half an hour, so I took some. THEN I tested myself. I'm low. I can't imagine what I was before I ate those fries.

    You really should test and then inject. I've not tested and injected which is equally stupid, but now I've been using a Libre, I can scan the device and find out what my glucose levels are. And just out of curiosity, are you all T1D or T2D or a mixture?

    I saw a strange thing yesterday while doing yard work.

    Neighbor girls are playing on their back porch. One's about 8, one's about 5. After a bit, big one tells little one she's going inside to use bathroom, sit here and wait for her. Little one plops down on the edge of the step, big one goes inside. Little one stares off into back yard, not looking at me, or as far as I can tell, anything else but trees and her feet kicking at the dirt.

    After a minute or so, little one starts singing...
    but in some kind of Death Metal growly voice.

    And this is what she sings:

    YOU ARE POOP AND ONLY POOP
    AND EVERYTHING YOU SAY IS POOP
    AND EVERYTHING YOU DO IS POOP
    AND EVERYTHING YOU ARE IS POOP


    And just like that, she's done. Big one comes back out and they start running around the yard, bouncing on the trampoline and stuff.

    Kids are WEIRD.

    I just recently discovered a new kind of chips I like. They are called "Takis Fuego." According to the bag they are, Hot Chili Pepper & Lime Tortilla Chips. They might be the most spicy things I have ever eaten and you got to have water or some drink available if your going to eat them.

    It's hot outside, when I go out I can feel my skin cooking. I wish I were nocturnal.

    Yeah, I really do know that. I don't know why I've been doing it the opposite recently. I think it's because I'd become used to how I feel, but that's all been thrown out the window.

    My doctor has described me as T1.5. I've been diabetic for over 20 years, it's only recently I cared if I was well or not.

    It still exists. Granted some people can only apply it to people just like themselves. I'm more worried about empathy.

    As for another random thought I am starting to get mad at my tv. Something is wrong because my Youtube apt is going all crazy, coming on by itself and when I watch something it will pause or rewind by itself. I think someone might be using my account.

    Also am I the only one who sometimes sort of has a fantasy of eating with no manors like a animals or small child. Kind of like, The Master did with that turkey in the final episode of "Doctor Who" with David Tennant.
