    Seems my hot water heater is toast -- looks like it's leaking out of the bottom, possibly rusted out. I can't get down and look at it because my knee is so screwed up right now.

    Anyway, I have no hot water and won't for the foreseeable future.

    Somebody decided it would be a good idea to set a bed frame out front of my house. Then set it on fire. At least the firefighters were hot.

    I found out today that my very well planned out litter out of two health tested, proven, structurally sound dogs with fantastic temperaments didn't take. Meanwhile, one of my facebook friend's 18 month old bitch just got pregnant by a 11 month old male accidentally. Yay!

    Ack, I remember when our hot water last blew out about 3 years ago - none for two days was unbearable lol. Washing up was icky and goosebumpy.

    Hope you can get a repairman out to have a look at it or something. Hope your knee mends quickly too <3

    We're incredibly short-staffed at work. It sucks being stretched so thin. People need to figure out when they can work, and how much they want to work, and stick with it. I'm sick of "I'm scheduled too many hours, I won't be able to see my boyfriend this week" and "I work too much, I can't get my schoolwork done." Welcome to being an adult. Welcome to prioritizing. If you can't be an adult and you can't prioritize, then please quit so you can be replaced by someone more reliable.

    Urgh.

    WTF is it with people who text -- who aren't regulars -- and don't tell you who it is?

    Adding a bunch of random words into your email does not make you sound smarter. Writing in very bizarrely structured sentences also does not make you sound smarter. Writing over 400 words when the problem could be summed up in 80 words is not helping you clarify what you're saying- it's confusing. Also sending it to EVERYONE does not mean people will actually read your novel.

    Seriously, I read that thing 5 times and still don't know wtf she was trying to say. It wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't every email she sent.

    In short: If you want people to read your emails, write normally.






    If you wish to present yourself more eloquently in the written word, inserting collegiate level vocabulary does not more intelligent you make. If you so desire to build your sentences in a non-traditional manner, please be aware that your sentences may now strike others as confusing and cumbersome to comprehend. This style of non-traditional writing does little to impress others with your eloquence and intellect but rather, ironically, will serve to cause them to perceive you as inferior in your writing skills. Even though it might be preferred by you to fully describe the situation at present in a short essay of sorts, please refrain. A more concise writing of merely the necessary facts will convey your dilemma more efficiently. You risk confusion on the part of your readers if you must insist on such lengthy forms of communication. Also please be aware that although one might be tempted to send such a request out to all our beloved peers, it is highly suggested that you only send the message to those whom the message will be meaningful. If the message happens upon those to whom the message does not pertain, it is highly probable that the message will not be responded to.

    And I couldn't even manage to get it confusing enough. :lol-sign:

    (I know, that was mean...)

    I made the mistake of looking up Implanon insertion videos.

    Advice for all. Don't do it.

    And I am now completely freaked out about tomorrow.

    OMG--I hate this!

    When dad was in the hospital one of the ICU nurses was like that (not one if dad's regular nurses thank God). The dude could not seem to utter a sentence without putting his hand on my shoulder, arm, back...I think he was trying to be caring (rather than creepy-lol) so I didn't have the heart to tell him to stop, but it was unsettling for sure.

    I've got a good one for you. I just had to pick up my ex boyfriend from prison. He got arrested for assault (bar fight). Awesome.

    "Hey sup?"

    "Erm...Who is this?"

    "Yo man don't be playin! it's me"

    "...Erm...." lol

    A hospital social worker left a message for ME on the house phone regarding granddad - I have no idea what or why they would be wanting to speak with me of all people; my cousins spend ALOT more time with him after all and probably are more familiar with his situation. The woman said she would call again in the morning - I'll take the call to see what's up - they'll probably want to speak with parents as well.

    Emii's service tomorrow evening....*deep breath*
