I've had a similar experience with orange juice and toothpaste.
Yeah, Orange Juice and toothpaste (Doesn't seem to matter which brand) are definitely not a good mix.
Just make sure you're grabbing the toothpaste and not Preparation H.
I post something on Facebook, it gets autoflagged by their bots meaning no human eyes ever saw it, they tell me I can't appeal and the decision is final because of COVID but that it's just a warning so no big deal, but there are a couple things they won't allow me to do for 30 days. And days later their automated system still keeps piling on more restrictions!
^quit FB and rather post here =)
No, the insurance pays for these only for patients who have to inject insulin. Fortunately, I am still on a very low pill dosis.
the curse of multi-tasking
Argh today: another 10 cm snow last night (35 cm in total now) and of course nobody had cleared their bit of the walkway by the time I went to work. I am tempted to buy a pair of skis for getting to work. We're in a lockdown but sports is permitted
Oooh! Cancel that! Winter is over: I just hear the mating call of a collared dove (Eurasian collared dove - Wikipedia), and the blackbird is trying a few new songs under its breath. Both a trifle early but a sure sign that the worst is over.
Working from home makes me stir-crazy....
why? The only disadvantage I can see is the slow internet. On the plus side you have only a few steps from desk to fridge, needn't dress up for work and have a comfortable environment.
What drives me stir-crazy today is my office's chief chemist. He got a list of sampling sites from the government but that list contains several small errors. During the last 2 weeks I explained to him 6 times that our internal list is correct and the governmental list is wrong, yet again and again he comes to me because the lists differ. He's utterly chaotic and un-organized and always tries to pass his work on to my colleagues and me even though we are a totally different department. I'm looking forward to him getting pensioned off (1226 days to go...).
If you don't have any other human beings in your home, not interacting with anyone all day can make you go completely insane.
That's it. And I need my gym because of tight quarters at home.
Not if you enjoy solitude.
Yeah, but if the reason it doesn't bother you is your personal preference for solitude, you wouldn't be questioning why it bothers *other* people.
When I'm looking up animals on Petfinder by distance, I do not want to see animals from the other side of the country who can be shipped to my area (for an additional fee).
Sometimes that's a problem all on its own!
How about looking up the websites of your local pet shelters? Second hand pets sometimes have their quirks but they are extremely grateful for a new home and bond very closely with their new owners.
We had freezing rain yesterday and the roads and walkways are glazed over this morning. On my way to work I already made a perfect Telemark landing when I slipped. I do hope nobody gets injured today.
When my mom is on her cell phone, she always has the other person on speaker at full blast, even if she's at the store.
Okay maybe I don’t understand, but a student came in to see someone who is on a meeting and I asked to take her name and number so the person could call her, and she’s all “I’m an international student, I don’t have a number she can call”
But she’s sitting right here waiting and playing games and taking calls on her CELL PHONE.
People are stupid
Do you have any relatives who inject politics, left or right, into everything no matter what the topic? For example, the dentist has to reschedule your appointment, so they blame the conservatives. Or your pizza delivery driver was late, and they say he must be a liberal.
Pretty much kills all conversation for the rest of the day.
I have and they are best avoided. Only you have family gatherings where that just isn't possible. Life sucks
Fuck Trump for not ordering more vaccines.
When the state healthcare website says you’re eligible to be vaccinated because of the Type 2, but the hospital website says they’re ONLY vaccinating healthcare workers, the pharmacy website says “only if you are over 65,” and all the other provider websites say “no available appointments within 50 miles of your location.
Because yeah, you’re fucked if you’re middle-aged and high-risk.
