    Still haven't found a decent yarn shop near mom's that isn't closed, either for vacation or out of business. Only big craft stores with the same stuff I can get anywhere.

      My sinuses are clearly having a problem with the unnatural concept of rapid travel to different climates. Dunno why suddenly this is some sort of a surprise.

        Eating supermarket sushi in a box sitting in the car. I think I just swallowed the little bit torn off to open the soy sauce packet. Fail.

          Nutritional sins in the name of expediency are the most frustrating kind. Not having access to my own kitchen (or sometimes any kitchen) means corporate concept menu hell.

            IHOP is fine with ordering a kids' item, the only thing remotely matching what I want that isn't over a thousand calories. I've been to places that get very annoyed when adults try that.

              Solving a few more nuisances by throwing money at them, but I'd be far happier if it were addressed with an economy that actually functioned sustainably for average Americans. I feel helpless to effect change because I'm not rich enough for pols to care.

                @ggirton I saw that, pretty alarming.

                  Target had these cookies that look like XLB, but shortbread and filled with raspberry purée. I'm ok with this.

                    After learning about CO drivers targeted for traffic stops, I started reading various state stop and identify and traffic stop search laws and cases. It's really hard to not conclude that, as an American, I live in a police state http://tinyurl.com/oqqmosb

                        I called expresstoll customer service, it gets worse. The particular type of transponder required for hov use can only be registered to a single vehicle. A borrowed or rented vehicle can never use the hov lane no matter how many passengers.

                          So metro Denver has a brand new hov lane, that we can't use because we don't have a toll transponder?

                            @ggirton I asked if they could do it in-house, and the nurse said they get results in about five minutes. I don't know how, but it sure is convenient.

                              @matigo thanks. This is familiar territory (chronic insomnia messes up a lot of things) But still good to get professional advice sometimes.

                                I don't have strep. I had to pay $80 at an urgent care clinic to learn this, but it's one of those things it's better to know sooner rather than later. Back to throat lozenges, water, and sleep. Happy to find an in network provider.

                                  @nickrosencrans others have been there for me, the least I can do is try to be a decent human. Not so much talk about that online these days.

                                    Life is hard, people are messy, you just try to get through the best you can whatever is thrown at you. Trying to help out a friend, even if it is only a kind word and a hug.

                                        @mandyd storms are a hazard even without ice. This happened in high school, we were at a beach condo for thanksgiving wondering why the cargo ship was so close to shore. Subsequent media circus was a hoot https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/MV_Mercedes_I
