from misfitstray :
Since when do you have 3 dogs??? God, I would wish you won't write of food. I always want to eat and have what you had. The lasagna and garlic breads sounded awesome!
from misfitstray :
I'm ok so far. Depressions come and go for decades now. I know the drill and going outside for walks into nature always do the job on lifting up my mood. Congratulations on your new job and giving notice to your old! I'm full of envy. I'd love to quit my current job too but as I'm pretty old with a pretty high salary, I won't want to give up on, I'm stuck with this job until I'll win the Lottery... *sigh* or until I'll retire - in 12 years or so *moresigh*
from misfitstray :
The recipe sounds very promising. If it wasn't for slicing and dicing all of those ingredients I would do it right now. I hate slicing especially onions. I urgently need a slave who would do this for me.
from misfitstray :
Very good. The next Stollen is yours. :) I like the imagination of you with a "flatstare"-face. I think it's funny and suited very good on my tenants "behaviour". I enjoy my weeks of vacation very much and I would not like to live in the US or other countries because we have 30 days of vacation per year (plus social benefits plus health insurance) over here in Germany.
from whystinger :
All I can say is OMG! Why is it that some are like that. You feel bad for them but they are kind of nasty and they have to hug or touch you excessively.
from misfitstray :
Aaaaah, so many new entries! Thank you! Yes, I know Stollen, but I don't like it. We get Stollen each year from our company (a very good and expensive one) on the 6th of Dec. I always give it away. If you like, I'll send it your way next year. It's 1.5kg of Stollen. And it wouldn't be stolen. You ok with that? You are a very good person with bearing your chattery ex. I would have killed him already 100 times at least, I guess. I absolutely, totally can't stand people who talk all the time. Well done with canceling the dinner. It's a lot less stress for all of your family I guess.
from whystinger :
Ok, I totally understand now and I would have to say, if you are that healed up and are doing it for your child, you are doing it right, that is awesome! In my case, if I had contact with my ex, it would hinder her (and probably me) from moving on. I would be happy if my ex found someone.
from whystinger :
Why is your ex invited to your family's Christmas? I take it he is remarried too and they both are invited or am I mistaken? Sorry to ask, but I wanted to get it right. This may be an opportunity to set a boundary, which for some of us, can be difficult (yes, me). One of the reasons I don't interact or remain "friends" with my ex.
from dangerspouse :
If I find an extra pony I'll send it your way. Maybe even with a dollar. Merry Christmas to you, kiddo :)
from misfitstray :
I'm totally into the very Heavy Metals stuff. I like it. How are you these days? I miss your entries. How is it going with your house, dogs family and friends?
from coronakym :
6/26/16 entry: I effing love this!
from misfitstray :
I'm totally ok. Thank you for asking! ♥ I'm so glad that you are feeling so comfortable at your new home.
from dangerspouse :
I've gotta start doing that CYA thing, too. And snacking :)
from dangerspouse :
Thank you very much :)
from misfitstray :
Sorry to hear about your knee problems. I hope that they will disapear soon ♥ Don't you get more money, when you cover for your co-workers? Isn't that good? Well, I'd like to win the lottery too. Let's do that together!
from dangerspouse :
So you decided to come crawling back, huh? Well, you're not the first babe to do that to me. Good to see you again. YOU'VE GOT A STALKER!! Er...it's not me this time, right? Whew. Good. Hey - the guy's got an 18 wheeler and booze! What are you waiting for?? Sounds like a Dream Date to me, chicky. Or do you have, y'know, "standards"? Pfffff. Princess. (Thanks for the note, I'm glad you appreciate the vagina blogging! Did you see the alpacas, though? Seriously: squeeeeeeee!) :)
from dangerspouse :
Ok, enough messing around in Notes. Gotta go make a peanut butter pie for some reason....

Mild mannered traffic announcer by day. But by night he becomes...dum dum dummmmm....VAGINA BLOGGER! Blogging 28 days a month, for your pleasure :)
from dangerspouse :
Baaaaaaaaaaaabe. ;)
from whystinger :
Great news about your Dad!
from misfitstray :
Fly over and drink with me! Bring your little furred fellows with you. I would become your personal assistant, if you pay enough :-P Poor one. That's a lot to do. I wouldn't attend the wedding. I would say, that I'm ill or so. I'm that kind of egoistic. Why would I do things in my very precious free time to do something I totally don't want to do?
from misfitstray :
Have fun with felting :) I'm curious about your first results. Those things I make are mostly needle-felted. I'm a middle-large looser in wet-felting.
from misfitstray :
Thank you! ♥♥♥
from misfitstray :
Well, what else could a decent lady, like I am, do? Nobody would suspect me to do things like that. That's an advantage, or?
from misfitstray :
That is definitely a really sad story about your movers and the builder. I would have sued the movers too! In Germany, normally, movers have an insurance against damage of stuff they move. So, the insurance would pay. I had some problems with my apartment too, so I really understand your anger and frustration. When they sold the apartment to me and said that everythng is ok with it. I thought I inspected it thorougly. But after I bought it, when I moved there, I discovered that the windows have to be renewed urgently (~8000 Euro). The pipes where clocked in the kitchen and the bathroom (unclocked everything by myself). The stove didn't work on all four plates (it's still broken, new stove ~1000 Euro). The fridgedoor didn't close properly (new fridge and freezer-combi ~1500 Euro), the tile stove should be renewed (~10.000 Euro), balcony and roof-terrace floor has to be renewed (~3000 Euro) etc. Well, I will replace everything by and by. But it's hard to get the money together as there are so many things that I have to buy. Sometimes I just want to cry and huddle up in a dark corner.
from misfitstray :
That doesn't sound very good, if you are thinking about sueing your builder. What happened??? Poor one. *hugs*
from whystinger :
Nothing wrong about keeping an Ex in the family especially if kids are involved. As my ex-wife likes to point out, love doesn't have to end with the divorce. Imagine if all divorced people were at least civil or friendly toward each other - the world would be a nicer place.
from whystinger :
Congratulations on the move! I am so happy for you that things are better!
from misfitstray :
I'm so happy for you, that you made it to the Ozarks and that you are glad about your move. Please post pics soon! I'm so nosey...
from whystinger :
That is a scary dream but understandable. About the move, you can have someone store your stuff for a while, but it is better if you can do the move without storage. You are correct about Mortgage lenders - after the 2008-ish bubble, they have been asking so many questions and being such a pain in the ass. I was questioned about a $2800 dollar deposit in my checking account from an old car I sold as I got ready to move. They demanded a copy of the check and sales paperwork. I didn't have a copy of the check. It was going to stop me getting a mortgage... stressing me out. Finally the Mortgage person looked at my stuff and said "this is an extra checking account, right?" It was. It was a "hobby car money" account where I stash a few bucks for playing with my old cars and such. The resolution? They simply took this account off of my application. They are such a pain!!!
from misfitstray :
That sounds quite stressfull. Poor thing. Will you get the pergola back? Why did they remove it at all?
from misfitstray :
couldn't you rent a trailer/truck for that extra furniture for one way? You nephew or someone else of your family could drive. It wouldn't be that expensive plus you won't have to sell any of it.
from whystinger :
Exactly what I am talking about. Why could they not just give you the Zpack so it would have two hours more to work and end your illness and suffering sooner. We had a lady at our local Publix who was a pharmacist and she would do this. She has been transferred - perhaps she was too customer friendly, but it kept a bunch of us spending more supporting the pharmacy where she worked. cheers!
from catsoul :
Congratulations on selling your house. Disappointed though in that realtor not listening to you. Bad realtor. Ok then, peace. =^..^=
from misfitstray :
That sounds so very exciting with your house(s). I don't envy you with the extra work with selling and buying and moving, but it is worth it. Do you have any pics of the new house? When I read about your new home I wanted to move right then and there. God, my inner gypsy misses moving soooo much!
from dangerspouse :
Thanks for the note, babe! Glad you liked the pics :) And damn, I hope your jerk of an ex starts leaving you the fuck alone. I don't know anything about texting - do you have the ability to block him?
from misfitstray :
Thank you for thinking of me. :) ♥ It'll be easy for your vibes this month, as I will get back money from the taxes. But it won't last long as I have a lot of extra bills to pay for car-inspection, new wheels, car insurance and an extra bill for the heating-repair. Then the money is gone again. *sigh* "easy come, easy gone". Strange thing with Alexa. Mine hasn't done anything strange so far. But as I'm not home for 3 days/week I may have missed it.
from misfitstray :
I'm ISFP: Introvert, Sensing, Feeling, Perceiving. Did the test a few minutes ago. Could you please send some of your positive money-vibes to me, PLEASE! ♥
from dangerspouse :
Aww, thank you for the sweet, sweet note. It was much appreciated.
from dangerspouse :
I would'a put up with the blown veins if she was cute. Vive la difference, huh?
from dangerspouse :
Thanks for the birthday wishes, non-smoker!! :)
from whystinger :
Sure hope you feel better soon!
from misfitstray :
Get well soon! ♥
from misfitstray :
Thanks for your note! All is fine with me. As I didn't celebrate Christmas and New Year I had a lazy and calm time. I had 3 weeks off before the holidays and had to work right after Christmas days. I'm envious for you moving into a new home. Not for moving itself but for a new home in beautiful surroundings. Hope you will find a builder soon. ♥
from dangerspouse :
Ooo, pomelos! Enjoy! Happy New Year, kid :)
from dangerspouse :
Hey kiddo, thanks for the nice note! I'm glad you get a kick out of my poverty ;) And woo hoo for your neighbor! I sure hope my wife gets as successful with her little venture...although I'm not sure I'd quit my job to help her. My groupies would cry. I can't do that to them. Oooooo, a new car! You ARE having a great Christmas season, aren't you. That sounds like a really fantastic deal they gave you. Good luck with it! And finally, glad to hear the furballs are out driving that poodle to distraction again. :)
from misfitstray :
I'm glad that your Dad and Jax are doing better. So, what was the cause for Jax' gastroenteritis? And did you find something interesting on the house-market in the Ozarks?
from portlypete :
Your uncle sounds awesome: I hope you still have some of your own teeth. I'm totally with you on the shitiness of life, so if you find that "civilized corner", can I rent a small part and we could play endless Petty tracks, with an occasional Wilburys number thrown in - "End of the Line" would seem appropriate.
from misfitstray :
I'm relieved, that you are doing fine. I listened to the news the other day and was worried about you. Take care my friend ♥
from whystinger :
I don't think she treated her friends, but she bought tons of clothes. I would find her throwing out "old clothes" that no longer fit that still had price tags on them. Dress Barn loved her. The would sell her a dress and a ton of accessories (cheap jewelry). She may have squirreled away some, but I seriously doubt it. I think it was mainly pissed away. Thanks.
from whystinger :
My ex-wife left her first husband like that, just wanted out. She tried to hang on with me. Most of the cost of the marriage was during the marriage and that is where I didn't save as much as I could. I was amazed that when she moved out, I picked up house bills that she had been paying and even though my expenses went way up, I still had money more money left than when she was there. She was draining me I guess. She pissed away thousands and to this day cannot tell anyone what she spent it on. She blew through $12,000+ in six months during the divorce even though she took all the furniture and anything of value. While I miss the marriage, I still am glad it is over.
from whystinger :
I am rebuilding my financial life, the results of my divorce. I am not in bad shape, but could be in better shape if I didn't have to cover for my ex-wife and I didn't do as good a job as I could have because I knew if I did a stellar job, she would try to push me to financial ruin. I should have done a better job. On the other hand, if she would have followed the plans that I wanted to implement and worked with me... we both could have walked away with a lot more.
from whystinger :
Nothing wrong about focusing on making money (and I don't know your age) but don't forget to same some and also invest some. I need to take more vacations and that i what I am moving towards. I also understand wanting someone to love, took two years off to heal from my divorce (best idea) and now am working towards getting back to dating.
from dangerspouse :
Woo hoo! VAY CAY SHUNNNNN! Damn the expense. You go, girl! But...where?
from whystinger :
That tragedy (pregnant lady on back of a motorcycle) was shocking.
from dangerspouse :
"the sadness cherry on my Alone-for-the-4th cake" made me laugh AND cry.
from misfitstray :
you are speaking of buying the White House, or? At least it sounds like it :) That really sounds like a good deal. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
from dangerspouse :
A Lean Cuisine on the 4th of July. My American stomach weeps for you :(
from whystinger :
Going from memory, some of your comments about your Dad, a few things about you bring in a common-ness between you and I.
from whystinger :
Shit, I read two pieces of info from your recent entries and now I have to go back and read earnestly... I've liked your diary for a long time, but now I see there are a few common things - more than I thought besides me being interested in lurking and reading.
from dangerspouse :
Proud to know I've given you another wrinkle :)
from dangerspouse :
Thanks for the note, and also for noting I would be a "tasty" snack. I take real pride in that! :)
from dangerspouse :
Yes! Take yourself out to dinner! Wine and dine you! I just KNOW you'll get lucky with you - I did! Seriously, it's easy. What else...oh yeah: thanks for the note! Glad the tick disgusted/amused you, and the ribs tickled your...ribs? Anyway, thanks! :)
from misfitstray :
I totally can relate to your "hermitness" while you are on vacation. I'm the same. I'm off from tomorrow on until the end of next week. I'll get a new car which will be deliverd to my doorsill. Nothing else on my agenda. Hope you'll have more fine-chilling-time without interruptions. ♥
from dangerspouse :
Your granddad sounds like my kinda guy :)
from dangerspouse :
BTW, I'm glad your new glasses help. Being blind would suck. I mean, you wouldn't be able to read my entries :(
from dangerspouse :
Awww, that's so sweet that your dad is your fave. Makes sense, too. The rest of us ARE pretty scummy. Thanks for the kind words about my Easter stuff. I still have leftovers. If you hurry.....
from comebacktome :
Ha, freaky! I love that about D-land though, you connect with total strangers and feel like they 'get it' in a way that people in your real life don't seem to :) So yes, we definitely have things in common by the sounds!!
from comebacktome :
Thanks for the note. You got me curious though- how so?
from dangerspouse :
How long did you stay with Mr. Cutie before you wised up?
from dangerspouse :
Crimes of the fowlest sort, I assure you. BWAHAHAAA!!! Cackle cackle cackle....
from dangerspouse :
Thank you so very much for the thoughtful and well considered note regarding my situation. It was very nice of you. I've never heard of "Voice123" but will certainly check it out. I'm a dolt when it comes to computer stuff, and don't have anything but a 10 year old PC (no microphone) so there might be tech limitations with my setup. But it's worth looking into. And although I'm a good home cook and have had fairly extensive professional training, I'm a far cry from being a "chef" any more. It's been a good quarter century since I last worked in a professional kitchen. That's not something a potential employer wants to hear, and frankly I don't blame them. Particularly when so many great cooking schools are graduating highly qualified chefs ready to go every year. I'd have a tough road to hoe there. But again, thank you so much :)
from dangerspouse :
LOL! Damn, you COULD have made a lot of money teaming up with that yo-yo I bet! Lol.... (Hey - I WASN'T CHEATING!! Oh, and if you're ever in North Jersey, stop by. I'll make all your dreams come true. Well, your bread dreams anyway.) :)
from dangerspouse :
I pity you, but only to an extent. I mean c'mon. If you don't have a wife, awesome or otherwise, it's you're own damn fault. You're obviously just not trying. On the other hand, I do hope you feel better soon - and then soon after that, land the home of your (and the dogs') dreams :)
from dangerspouse :
Don't lie. You're fattening up Jax and Dexter because you don't like turkey on Thanksgiving, right? Sly plan....
from dangerspouse :
Good point. How 'bout I just play it safe and call it a "Cis-mission"?
from dangerspouse :
Your dogs eat better than most people I know. If you need a wine recommendation, just ask :)
from misfitstray :
Again, I admire your patience with your job and boss and your love to your ex coming back together after all those accusations and allegations. You should ask for a raise - an immense raise. I nearly never won anything. As long as I remember I won twice. Once during my childhood - a handball, and once in my early twens a small travel bag. That's it. I played the lottery or other competitions plenty of times. Does your luck jump over if one is near to you? ;)
from dangerspouse :
I think L'eggo is making frozen pop-up toaster Twat Waffles now. Can't wait to try 'em and compare with Original Recipe. (Sorry your work is STILL a roiling maelstrom of insanity. I really do feel bad for you. Go ahead and bitch away here - why feel restraint in your own diary? Kinda defeats the purpose, no? Besides, us voyeurs love it!)
from dangerspouse :
Stupid idiotic cage rattling monkey jerks! Jesus. I hope this fixes the problem for you. What a hassle.
from misfitstray :
Wow, what a mess with you bank accounts. I'd gone nuts with them and why would they freeze it all of a sudden? What did happen that they had to touch anything at all? Wouldn't it be more comfortable even for you, if you had only one last name? As far a I know you wouldn't be allowed to have two last names (but illegal) over here. We Germans are a bunch of very orderly people ;) We love our rules and tediousness.
from misfitstray :
Don't worry for my well-being, when sleeping in my car. I'm just fine. There are a lot of offers from friends to sleep at their homes. If I would, I could sleep in different homes for at least 2 weeks. But I don't want to. I like to stay independant and for myself. I would love to work from home or at least drive home daily but as jobs in our region are rare, plus I'm pretty old, chances are nearly zero. Why isn't the boss of your boss taking notice of all those people quitting in her department? All this must be recognizable by the HR at least and they should report...
from misfitstray :
Good that you have your side jobs if that horrible boss is going to stay bitchy. I can only admire your patience with this. I would have gone wild already right after the problems with the holidays and quit. Well, I'm known to be a gypsy in all departments of my life. How is it going with Jax?
from whystinger :
It would be fun to resign and stuff it up your boss's ass, but that could actually punish you. Beware that if she is that much a bish and is crafty and manipulative, she could be trying to get you to resign. Sometimes it is sweeter to stay and take the high road. Continually firing new employees is sort of a bad sign (for her). In my little group of three, we each have two contract employees. One coworker and myself have had the same two for two years, except we each had one promoted. Our 3rd co-worker, whom my boss thinks is the bomb has been through 6 or 8 (I forget). While he is the boss's fave, he ain't lookin' good. As I read the entry, I thought "send Ninofswords a message to document, document document." Your (lateral) friend gave great advice. I would go as far as writing anything down and adding the date and time. Fight the urge to tell her to stuff it and remain professional and you will win. Condolences as I have worked for assholes like that and it is tough.
from misfitstray :
I know from experience: being consistent and consequent is the key to an obedient dog/child. Once "no" ALWAYS "no" especially with dogs. You are their Alpha and the boss. The dog trainer could give really good advice. My Tula was the same as Jax when it came to hunting wildlife. There was no solution there. Nothing helped. *sigh* But in all other situations she was the most kind and well-behaved dog ever.
from misfitstray :
It's never too late to go to a pet obedience school with Jax. Even older dogs can still learn. I think it's worth it. Obedient dogs are a benefaction for the nerves and I guess you could use some relaxation.
from misfitstray :
As I said, before, those crimes committed by immigrants/refugees are hyped! I could easily find similar crimes in the same period of time, the commentator of the video mentioned, committed by Germans! I don't know anyone who was harrassed by a refugee. You can find crimes committed by white Americans likewise or committed by other ethnic groups in the US. There are problems of the same kind in the US. You always hear that people of other ethnic groups are commiting crimes. But I visited the US at least 15 times and nothing happened to me. I know that people of islamic background have different opinions about women in the western world. Maybe this will cause some stir-ups sometimes. But the majority of those people seeking asylum are glad that they are allowed to stay and most of those people will go home again when the situation in their homeland is getting better. And what do you know about the demonstrations background which were shown in the video? When did they happen, why did they happen? Maybe those people with german flags were Nazis? This video just shows the surface and is stoking fears and xenophobia. Well, I don't want to force you to come to Germany if you don't feel safe.
from misfitstray :
Eastern Germany is nice now that a lot of the buildings and streets are restored or newly build. A lot of the streets over there are parkways with very old trees. These are gorgeous. You should visit now. The Baltic sea area is beautiful and the Mecklenburger Seenplatte is popular among Germans for its beauty and recreational value. You shouldn't be afraid of refugees. Acts of violence are very rare and hyped if they happen. I guess there are always black sheeps among each ethnic group. Bad people pop up everywhere in the world. There has been absolutely no incidents in Zwiesel e.g. and we had a few hundred refugees in our town. I've never been harrassed by any of them, not in Munich, not in Zwiesel and not on Ruegen.

hi. Any chance you could post a pic of your Med Massager and model number. I am a diabetic and my one foot and leg have poor circulation. I would like to look into this. Thank you ever so much. Take Care. Peace Out. =^..^=
from astitchaway :
Have you heard of Fiverr.com? It helps you to market any skills you might have. If you've written freelance content, as you mentioned, you can set up a gig to sell that service. It's essentially content creation. I make about $600 a month, but it's work that can be done from anywhere. It might not be your thing, but you could definitely check it out. Browse around and see if anything catches your interest. There are other types of content creation too. I know a girl who just writes hand-written letters and mails them wherever. $5/letter. I just thought I'd throw that your way and see if you could fit it into your 5 year plan!
from dangerspouse :
God, I just LOVE German style breads. So hearty and richly flavored! I'll take a big ol' hunk torn off a fresh pumpernickel over some prissy baguette any day (moreso because I love what "pumpernickel" actually means, lol). Good for you, carb cutter! And yeah: wtf is with the caviar priced tea?? Jesus.
from misfitstray :
It's not that I don't like my Echo, but as it doesn't use google for searching answers it is very limited for getting real knowledge. Well, it does play my kind of music, whichis cool with me. I think I will change the settings to english. I'm undecided yet, to buy the Echo Dot too.
from misfitstray :
As we don't have earthquakes in Germany it would be a waste of time to ask Alexa about those. I found a site with some "easteregg"-questions for Alexa. But as they are in english I have to change settings into english for mine to get the (right) answers. I asked Alexa what pre-eclampsia is. She even didn't know that *sigh*. Alexa is of no use when it comes to loanwords. *biggersigh*
from dangerspouse :
To be fair, that's about all there is to really know about her even in real life. Some people just don't have many dimensions, y'know?
from misfitstray :
How does it go with searching for a new home for you and your sister? I envy you for your stay in the Ozarks. It must be beautiful at this time of the year.

Wishing you a wonderful holiday! Nevertheless your boss tried to piss you Off before your vacation. Shrug it off. It's only a week. She's Just another bitch like all other einen but us two 😘

well, I think that with both candidates it's like to jump from the frying pan into the fire. None of them is a good candidate at all. But with lack of choice - I'd emigrate as fast as I could

Flirting with the Doc, eh? Hey, question: The book "Looking Out for #1" is that the one by Robert Ringer?
from picean-dream :
Thank you. I'm late saying that, but I do appreciate it.
from dangerspouse :
HA! "Mrs. Doctor" in the future? Start working your magic, girl....
from dangerspouse :
Already done! Actually, she read my post and wrote me that more will be winging its way to NJ shortly. Ah, the perks of celebrity.... :)
from dangerspouse :
That's true. Added bonus: you can fit more plums in your anal cavity than artists. No need for as many return trips. (Unless they're those midget artists, that is.)
from misfitstray :
You are absolutely right with your "cheating agenda"! I think there is nearly no actor who is married for lifetime. Sooner or later they all part lifes. Well, it's normal nowadays that people get divorced. Nothing's forever.
from whystinger :
Didn't Angelina cheat with other leading men that may have been married before Brad?
from misfitstray :
It was you who made me want one. :) Don't know if I will get one before launch. Didn't get any answer from amazon yet.
from misfitstray :
yeah, but you are the one looking more beautiful :)
from picean-dream :
So, that thing that happened to you has happened to me now. I just found out yesterday and I'm struggling. Your strength is inspiring and I'm hoping to find some of my own soon. I'll need it to keep the babadook downstairs.
from dangerspouse :
Hooray for long weekends! I hope it's restful for you. Paint well :)
from life-my-way :
Still sending sympathy your way, along with wishes for a relaxing long weekend. You've earned it.
from whystinger :
That purple cabbage sounds awesome. I should try to make it this weekend. You make your own ancho sauce? Mid year review suck. I got my ass chewed pretty good this year. I know I goofed up, but the bad things is instead of an ass chewing like usually, he kept beating a dead horse. No yelling, just kept grinding and that was worse. It was effective as I clawed my way back up.
from misfitstray :
I'm very glad that you are getting better. As you once wrote a note to me "If your boss would fire you and go through the hassle and expense of hiring and training a person to take your place, he's a fool. I understand the worry and it's always good to keep an eye peeled for other jobs or even better, have multiple streams of income... but I seriously doubt you'll get fired for a typo." It isn't just a typo in your case, but I seriously doubt that there will be any consequences at all as you were/are the best in your job still and as we all are just human and mistakes happen especially when something tragic happens in your life and concentration is limited. You shouldn't worry *hugs*
from dangerspouse :
Thank you thank you! Yeah, don't stand directly in front of me for a few days. Got a lot of catching up to do :)
from life-my-way :
The edge of forever--that is so amazing and wonderful. I'm all goose-bumpy. Hugs from Alabama, and sympathy.
from whystinger :
Gosh I need to catch up on your diary.
from dangerspouse :
How adorable! Misfit does beautiful work, you're right. You have an otter plushie too? Post pics - I love otters!
from misfitstray :
I'm very relieved that you liked everything I sent. I then guess you don't check on your aol-account very often, as I sent an email earlier than the entry. Love ♥♥♥
from dangerspouse :
Thanks for the note, kiddo. I know you have a lot on your plate at the moment, so I wasn't expecting one. Anyway, yeah, fresh cheeses like that ricotta are delightful au natural, particularly when just produced. I think so anyway, although that may be bias on my part because I grew up on the stuff. But give me a bowl of that either plain or a simple nut or berry + sweetener topping (honey is traditional, but I even like maple syrup) and I'm in heaven. My wife's favorite: mixed with rose water, a few raisins, orange zest, and mint leaves, rolled into a Viet rice paper roll and drizzled with honey syrup. Extraordinary. I hope you get to try it someday :)

If your nephew is half as sensitive as you are he will understand your longing for privacy for a period of time. Sending tons of hugs.
from astitchaway :
Hey! You don't know me. I just clicked on most recent entries and read through yours. I read through a few, too. I wanted to share my condolences about your loss. But more, I wanted to say I'm impressed with how you handled your grief. It's a demon, and not an easy one to control. Many people fall victim, especially to substance. But you're right that grief needs to be felt. It seems you've done a good job processing the situation. It's baby steps from this point. I'm sure your nephew will understand. If he's old enough to be dating, he should be old enough to understand your need for space.
from dangerspouse :
"I miss my guy but I ain't trying to join him just yet." I was very relieved to read that. Now stop making chopped thumb salads!
from dangerspouse :
Only recently been able to check up on others' diaries, and read of your loss today. Please accept my sincere condolences. What an awful thing to have happen. You'll be in my thoughts.
from nineofswords :
Picean dream, I also thank you for your prayers and well wishes.
from nineofswords :
Picean dream, thank you for your kind words.
from picean-dream :
I don't have fancy words, just so very sorry for what has happened. Yeah, grief and ketosis generally go hand in hand. Be as kind and gentle with yourself as you're able, the next chapter will make or break you. I'm whispering as many prayers as possible for you to come through this pain.
from whystinger :
I am sorry to hear of your loss. This must be very hard.
from life-my-way :
I am so sorry to read of your loss. Sending sympathy and hope for peace and strength. So very sorry.
from dangerspouse :
I'm sure the boys will be fine. Sleep well :)
from misfitstray :
join a gym - see that's what I'm talking about making mistakes. I sometimes think that I have some kind of ADHS or something like this... You don't want to give me your adress? Wrote an email...
from dangerspouse :
That move sounds good for you, and it sounds like you know that. Good luck! But...don't be so enamored of the White Death. Snow is pretty. On greeting cards. Only.
from misfitstray :
you should join a join after you moved to the mountains. I think it's nice to see some folks once in a while instead of hermitting up in your castle. You don't have to speak to the people at the gym if you don't want to and you'll be able to watch eye-candy once in a while in real life ;) btw. you've got mail
from dangerspouse :
xoxoxoxoxo :)
from misfitstray :
You are allowed to send me greeting cards on a daily base :) I don't care when I die. We all have to sooner or later. And as life sucks very often I like it to end sooner than later.
from dangerspouse :
Fooled you. My green aura is just halitosis.
from dangerspouse :
Reminds me of a joke: A guy with no arms and no legs goes up to a whorehouse and rings the bell. The madame opens the door, looks down at him, and says "What do you think you're gonna be able to do here?" He says, "I rang the bell, didn't I?" Now stop reading and GO SAVE TIMMY! HURRY!!
from dangerspouse :
MY WIFE DID THE SAME THING!! Stupid fireworks....
from dangerspouse :
All three, more likely. Which makes me respect you all the more. Well done!
from dangerspouse :
While I'm sure accurate, that was nowhere near as interesting as you could - and should - have made it. Try again.
from dangerspouse :
Are you going to tell us WHY you weren't wearing pants, or are you going to leave us to speculate that it was in anticipation of the sprinkler repair man's arrival?
from dangerspouse :
Lol. You picked up on that, did you? Very astute madame, very astute :)
from dangerspouse :
HA! Women, ammi right, guys? "Don't call!"..."How come you never call??" WOMEN! (And again, thank you for such a gracious, head expanding note. BOTH heads. XOXOX )
from dangerspouse :
Thank you so much for the note! I'm really flattered. I mean, it's not often that a lady expresses admiration for an extended tale about an epic fart. Where have you been all my life?? (Oooo, I gotta buy something from Pottery Barn now. When they send me my return label, there are all sorts of things I want to send back!)
from dangerspouse :
KAWAII!!
from misfitstray :
That is indeed a cute little bunny. Yours will be bigger and in a sitting position. Those colours you'd prefer won't be a problem. I'll begin next weekend. I won't post pics before it arrives at your home. It'll be a surprise.
from misfitstray :
Yeah. Any colour preferations?
from misfitstray :
No European targets for vacation? I'm very sad.

Oh my god, that ramen bowl looks GREAT!! I've gotta try that black garlic now, but, shit - that ramen bowl looks GREAT!! *sob* I can't believe you're gonna just walk away from that now. You're a stronger man than I....
from misfitstray :
I remember you writing about that friend of yours. I think you shouldn't help at all, even if it isn't a christian thing at all. She/they might never learn that money doesn't come from nothing if everybody around is always helping out. It's harsh, I know. Never heard of black garlic. I have to go look here, if I can get it to try it out. That looks pretty yummy!
from misfitstray :
I'm glad that you feel better!
from misfitstray :
What is the cause of a kidney infection? I know bladder infections but no kidney infection until there are internal bleedings or surgeries involved. Hope you feel better soon! Healing vibes your way!
from dangerspouse :
How very sweet of you to worry about my masturbatory concerns! *sob* If only more women were. YOU HEAR THAT, MOM??
from dangerspouse :
Now I have two comments about your entry: 1. Welcome back! 2. Sorry about the pee thing. Hope your vinegar knows more about your kidneys than the nephrologist you're wary of. 3. Good luck on the diet!! That one's serious. and 4. I can't count.
from dangerspouse :
I have two comments about your comment: 1. As well you should be. and 2. You're a filthy girl. I like you.
from dangerspouse :
Awww. Daddy loves his little girl, always. You're very lucky :)
from misfitstray :
I could make a rabbit too. I could do any animal. I think it would be difficult for me to felt birds, but I never tried, though. Hm, it just came to my mind that I could felt litle birds and put them together in a kinetic sculpture/wind chime. So many ideas, so less time...
from misfitstray :
Thank you! I don't have a pattern just the picture and my imagination. I learned this by myself. It's done by needle-felting. I attended a class once for wet felting. I think it's a bit more tricky as the wet wool does not always do what you want and as it shrinks it's not always forseeable how the size will come out as each wool behaves and shrinks different. You want a racoon? As smartphone holder or something different? I'll make one for you.
from misfitstray :
The meerkat isn't ready yet. Went hiking yesterday and didn't get much done on Saturday either. It's just the plain white woolen form at the moment. It still needs some more forms and then the finetuning. I'm running out of wool and ordered it Saturday. Guess what? It wasn't available as it's end season for wool. New wool will come in next month as the sheep shearing is just then. The grilled octopus is like "yuck" I wouldn't have eaten it, no matter if it tasted good. I'm happy for you that your sister will move nearby. How long will it take until she's sold her house?
from misfitstray :
I saw some of the felted animals over at Pinterest too and I was quite astonished about the prices there. There was a racoon that cost 260$!! Well, it was a bit more detailed than mine but nevertheless... It took me the weekend to felt the racoon. Like 10 to 14 hours or so, I think. Haven't watched at the clock. How's everything going weatherlike in Houston? Water going down? Stay save!
from dangerspouse :
Doe!!
from dangerspouse :
Cool! Thanks for the detailed reply...even if it didn't include a dirty joke or anything :(
from dangerspouse :
My god - Second Life is still a thing? Why did I think it went the way of MySpace like, 5 years ago? Well, glad you have something to keep you from going stir crazy while you're trapped in your watery grave...er, house. (I had to look up "Blue Apron". Are you enjoying the quality of what they send you?)
from misfitstray :
Though, come over! I'll pick you up at Munich Airport.
from misfitstray :
Thank you, but I surely think that the pics are not good enough for going pro. All pics are taken with my mobile phone (Samsung S6 edge+) Don't drown, be/stay safe my Dear.
from dangerspouse :
On the other hand, if she still hasn't been interred yet....
from dangerspouse :
You're right. I should have thought of her suffering also. Poor, poor girl to die so deprived.
from dangerspouse :
My god. How the hell can anyone BBQ in weather like that? Horrible! And a shame the pretty 20-something drowned. I like to think I woulda had a chance with her. The rest of the idiots deserve what they got.
from whystinger :
Thanks for the chia pudding recipes. I have been on on the road an awful lot lately and have not been home to try them until this weekend. I went shopping and bought come chia and almond milk and took them home, thinking I will probably have to cook this for a long time. Decided to wait until my work was done and then I get ready to try making it. Holy crap! It sure is EASY to make! I really could not believe how easy. Thanks!
from dangerspouse :
"Take a Bao"! I get it! Oooo, clever you are :)
from dangerspouse :
Oh my god, I looooove making bao!! Eating them too :) But as you rightly point out, overindulgence can lead to all sorts of unsavory things. *sigh* Nonetheless, WOO HOO for you! Don't give any to that ingrate bitch this time. Um...I laughed at the Exxon Valdiz packing peanut spill. Sorry. And sorry your head hurts. Would cunnilingus help? I know a guy....
from dangerspouse :
And aren't you thankful that I am? (Speaking of....suuuuuure it's "not that kind of" sleepover.) :)
from dangerspouse :
Note hilarious....now let's talk about cunnilingus. Because despite your protestations, you know you want to. :)
from dangerspouse :
HUZZAH! Freedom, sweet freedom at last! (Although I woulda taken that safety off and popped a cap in HIS ass if he'd eaten all MY ice cream. Bastard.) And...follow your dream(s). If they're family of any worth, that's what they'd want for you. And the Ozarks are gorgeous, at least the parts I've seen. NewWifey(tm)'s folks live in Norfork, AR and when we go there it's like my vision of paradise. Not the greatest economic hub in the country, true, and teeth can be scarce among the locals. But absolutely beautiful. Do it. :)
from dangerspouse :
You and I had a very similar childhood it seems. My parents also barricaded me during my early years (although, granted, it was to keep me OUT, not in). And I also disseminated Jello blobs to all sorts of alarming places once I did manage to figure out how to get inside. Did you know that Jello can shoot sparks across the room and light your cat on fire if you jam it far enough into a wall socket? Anyway...I hope you get your blessed solitude back ASAP. You and your maid will both be relieved, I'm sure :)
from life-my-way :
If you still have a blue apron box to give away, I'd love to have one! My email is mkklose at gmail dot com--write me and I'll write back with all my info. I've been wanting to try this and you make it sound so great!
from whystinger :
Look up the dream in the dream dictionary. I like red quinoa and am wondering about adding chia... but the dream is about something other than grain, ha ha. The red is indicating passion, sex or... It may not be about the other colors, it may be about what they add or their elements. Not sure about the compacting. Pretty interesting. Got any good quinoa and chia recipes? I have not messed with chia.
from whystinger :
"Out of my (your) mind with glee..." I have days like that where I am just really happy to be alive. I am sorry to hear about the shipping problems with your Uncle's gear, that sucks. I am not sure which shipping company you used, but that really is bad. I was going through my notes and I hope I did send you a password. If not, forgive me.
from misfitstray :
I'll try to fulfill up to your demands, Madame. It's going to be fun.
from misfitstray :
You should go for the property in the Ozarks. That sounds pretty nice with all those advantages you'll have. Somehow it seems like you need to convince yourself to move.
from misfitstray :
I think I'd never try to escape into the past. Women are treated very badly at that time. I love my independence... Well, but a Jamie could never hurt, aaaaahhhh....
from misfitstray :
Just discovered "Outlander" recently. I love this show. Too bad that there's only season 1 out on Netflix. I guess I have to stream them online for more Jamie-goodness. I read all the books in the 90s and loved them soooooo much! I want a Jamie for me too. And all those scenes with scottish landscape - I'm so excited to see that for myself in less then 2 weeks.
from whystinger :
I think you are on the right track to not over-subsidize your kid. I watched my ex-bro-in-law subsidize one of his kids excessively and the kid would take and take and take. As you don't over-subsidize, the kid will tire of poverty and will better themselves. I applaud you.
from misfitstray :
The exterior looks pretty nice. It's not what I would like as I like things plain and simple. But as tastes are different - well. I bet the price will go down if you bargain a bit. 800.000$ would be doable I guess.
from misfitstray :
1.1 million? Huh, the place must be the Taj Mahal. Sounds awesome. You have a pic of that place?
from misfitstray :
Thank you for trying this out. So far nothing happened. But it's not Friday yet. ox
from misfitstray :
Thank you for looking that up. It's a pad for underneath the tent to prevent from moisture, and little sticking through things, do protect the tent bottom from "harm". Could you please wish something for me too? Like a heavy cash dump on me? Those things never worked for me. So maybe it will work with you for me? ♥
from misfitstray :
I need to do my taxes too. I still haven't managed to sort my papers... *sigh* Does your insurance cover the carpentry too?
from misfitstray :
That is quite the sad story about your baby daddy. How can people be so self absorbed? How old are you if I'm allowed to ask? You already have a grown up kid. Always thought you were end 20 or beginning of 30. Thank you for the recipe. I always thought that you have to marinate the wings for like 24 hours before you fry them. I planned to do them in the oven as I don't own any deep frying utensils. I totally prefer things made in the oven especially meat. I bought 6 pounds of chicken wings. It would take one round in the oven but I would have to make like 6 or 7 rounds in a deep frying device. I'm all in for simple and quick. (impatient gene...)
from misfitstray :
I'm ok but not the world and people around me. I'm very sad.
from misfitstray :
You ok? How is your family? I miss your entries.
from whystinger :
I think the allergist's method was to get an additional anti-biotic to the infection, sort of topically, instead of just though the blood stream. All I know is it killed a sinus infection that was not responding to regular antibiotics for a bunch of us.
from misfitstray :
Never used whey powder in my life. Is it any good? What kind of brand do you use? I see those all the time in the sports nutritions sections. And what is a z-pack?
from whystinger :
About two years ago, some really weird cold and sinus infection went around and nobody could shake it. My (now) former allergist (in Savannah) came up with this different treatment protocol. He had us take the regular antibiotics but also added a second topical anti-biotic. Anti-biotic eye drops you dropped into your nose (rather than eyes). That was the only thing that knocked out the sinus/respiratory infection. When I had the problems my place was clean, but I discovered some mold and mildew behind some furniture. I had to clean that up and repair it. There was more to it than that, but I don't recall all of it at this moment. Glad you are feeling better.
from dangerspouse :
I think (without looking it up, so I must be wrong) "Rikki Tikki Tavi" was the name of the Indian kid's mongoose. I think. Also, your dream/epiphany reminds me of the "Scorpion and the Frog" fable. BTW, glad you're feeling better....I guess.... ;)
from whystinger :
Wow, you've turned into a sommelier of cough syrups! Now that is quite something and I imagine that would suck, even if you weren't ill. I hope you feel better soon and the Z pack kicks in fast. I would shit if the fat little green booger guy from Mucinex showed up at my door, but I am in the middle stages of a cold also, so I expect the little bastard. I went through a period of time where I got bronchitis frequently and a few times pretty bad. I know how that Doctor is acting and I think that the theatrics are meant to show concern, but that can be annoying. I started taking a lot of precautions to stop the bronchial infections and that helped a lot. I think part of it was related to my allergies and part of it was related to my environment - dusty, mildewy. I am NOT saying this is causing yours, we all have different triggers. Feel better.
from dangerspouse :
"a sommelier of cough syrups" - best line of the weekend! I hope you get better soon, but I'm gonna miss descriptions like this when you do. Oh well. Hey listen, if you'd wanted a blobby green man to visit you, you should have called. I do weddings, bat mitzvahs, and sick calls. Hang in there, Snotty!
from dangerspouse :
You poor thing! Hope you get better soon...although not if it's at the expense of those AWESOME dreams!
from misfitstray :
Get well soon my Dear! You are right, I will take at least my smartphone with me.
from dangerspouse :
Yet another reason boys stink and you should throw rocks at them. Feel better soon! (Handy Household Tip: mix NyQuil and gin 1:1. When you wake up sometime next week you'll feel worlds better.)
from dangerspouse :
1. Yes. 2. It did. 3. I did too! 4. I assumed you had 5 thumbs, like most of my immediate family. 5. Cheers to you! :)
from dangerspouse :
I think I'm most surprised to read that you have two thumbs. Go figure.
from dangerspouse :
Actually I was inordinately fond of Justice Scalia. Why? Did I give the impression I wasn't? (For the record, I'm also inordinately fond of the word "trollop" and think it should be put in heavier rotation when searching for words that describe ho's and slatterns.)
from catsoul :
hi....we so love our pets. My Sadie girl is very needy also, so I so get what you mean in your writing. Have a good visit and drive safely. Take Care. =^..^=
from misfitstray :
Have a wonderful weekend with your sister! How is she? I'm so into Vikings too! I love that show. Never watched any of those others you mentioned but Walking Dead which bored me. But I will give Bates Motel a try. :)
from misfitstray :
No, never read that book. But "Into the Wild" by Krakauer. That left me crying. I thought about doing the Apalachian Trail once. But as I have to work to live there's no way to this before retirement. I would take you with me on a hike if you like :) Interesting thoughts on life and souls! I like them. Even if I am a Jehovas Witness, we don't believe in souls as a thing in us but that human beings are a soul. But I do believe that there is an energy in us that lives on. We are surrounded by energy and we are energy.
from dangerspouse :
Far be it from me to burst a lady's bubbles, they being my favorite parts. So fine, fine: OH MY GOD, YOU INVENTED A NON-BURN CRUST PIE HACK THING!! I can't believe it! Jesus, I mean, I know there's some sort of ridiculous aluminum ring they sell in hardware stores and shady back alley emporiums that claim to do the same. But they're unweildy and heavy and expensive a shit and from what I've read on the interwebs work about as well as Michael Schumacher's brain. I cannot believe you cracked the code! Well done! Well done old girl! Damn. You really did it. (Now quit your sulking and make me a pie. Get your bubbles moving, babe!)
from dangerspouse :
Ooo! Make it like Lady Gaga's meat suit - that was awesome!
from dangerspouse :
Chicken pot pie ROCKS! Worth the starches, blocker or no blocker. And your foil ring thing? Great idea, and you're *almost* the inventor. After about 6.25x10tothe27th cooks before you. But yeah, good thinkin'! Although if you ever feel like cheating at it, they do sell solid aluminum rings in various sizes that are dedicated to that task and work very well. Nonetheless...YAY! Enjoy :)
from misfitstray :
Please don't worry. It's enough that I do. Nothing will happen but the enjoyment of the beautiful landscapes and very sore muscles. I hope that your workload will lessen soon. Btw. I signed up for fb. :-/ You tell me your name to add you? Not that I will update or get online much for this. You could write an email. The one on my dland-page is the actual one.

1. I'm glad you're a girl, too. The world needs more of you guys. You smell good. 2. That's EXACTLY what my wife said. God, I love you wimmin-folk. 3. This is where you and my wife are at odds. She substituted the word "me" for "doctor". :)
from dangerspouse :
Lol. In "vive la difference!" news: if I were a newly grieving widower, I couldn't think of a more caring or thoughtful gesture than the offer of a pity fuck.
from dangerspouse :
Say no more indeed! Of course, that's tempered with an Insanity Switch that toggles from "Off" to "ON!!" with no warning whatsoever and for no reason whatsoever (that I've been able to figure out, anyway. Must be a period thing.) Still, your sister shouldn't have to put up with shit like this before her husband's corpse has barely even turned cold. Fucking inconsiderate, insensitive jerks. It really is sad, and I feel like apologizing for my whole gender after reading shit like that. Gah! Men!!
from misfitstray :
sorry, I meant grief not grieve
from misfitstray :
clinging to the every-day routines and tasks would bring me through those days of grieve. Things that keep me off thinking too much. I lost so many of my family already. I know exactly how you feel. I would wish that I could help you and your sister.
from misfitstray :
That is so very sad to hear of your brother in law! I'm very sorry for you and your sister and family. My condolences.
from dangerspouse :
My god, that's so sad. Your poor sister. How old was Mr. F? My condolences.
from whystinger :
My condolences to you and your family.
from dangerspouse :
Pomelos ROCK. Good for you, both for acquiring them and keeping them well hidden from The Insatiable Maw. You should grab as many as your wallet allows and try making things with them, too: ice cream and sorbet are easy and excellent, as is making your own pomelo liquor. How cool would THAT be to offer your guests (or scarf all on your own because no one you know is classy enough to fucking deserve even a taste)? Enjoy!
from misfitstray :
I can't cook red cabbish. *sigh* I can do all sorts of cabbish but no red. You've got a recipe? My grandma made the best ever, now I just buy the ready to go ones out of the freezer. It's kind of ok. Red cabbage is awesome together with poultry/goose/duck and deer-meat.
from dangerspouse :
You got a kid and she got the dog? You got rooked, chickie. Damn. Lol - bomb diggity 'skeddy sauce is something to be proud of, though. Woot! Woot!
from misfitstray :
I think you are very patient. I would have gotten such a guy in my appartment with filthy hands and feet six feet under after the first week.
from dangerspouse :
What did you cook? What did you cook??! Don't torture me like this!
from dangerspouse :
I may tune shit out, but at least I...I...wait, what? Oh yeah: YOU'VE GOT A HUGE ZIT ON YOUR EYE! Nyah nyah!
from dangerspouse :
Waaaaaaaaaait a second. You think that a lifetime of great sex and an awesome relationship are only possible after having tough conversations, awkward silences, hurt feelings and the emotional psychodrama? Seriously? My god - what have I done wrong? Do I just apply enough alcohol to mitigate those requirements? I have a great, boink filled marriage - going on 16 years now - and none of those things apply to me! To her, yes. But not to me! ;)
from dangerspouse :
Okay, it's a deal. Once the bay window is lying in shards on my rug, the sound bar is yours. But I expect a nice lamb dinner in return - NO VEGETABLES!
from dangerspouse :
Yes! YES! You NEED that sound bar!! It will make you MUCH happier than silly pursuits like trying to achieve your potential, or whatever that sappy chick quote was. Yeesh. Oh, and: Yes! YES! All us males are like that. What can we do, though? It's not like we can get by on our looks. Ya works with what ya got, and in our case that means bludgeoning into submission via force or sheer annoyance. Accept it, beyotch.

Sad to hear that your puppy is ill. I hope that all will go well with his heart condition and medication. Have a good time with your friend!

oh, we do have prime here. I'm a prime member for quite some time. I'm a huge fan of amazon, though. I buy most things there. Plus, I have a fire tablet, and I have fire TV, but no normal TV channels. I hate advertisement...

I could get it from the US with a dealer within, but who knows if it would work here alright and it would be more expensive also. Though, I'll be patient and wait until it's out here.

No amazon Echo here :( Wish for once that Germany would come out with nice things in time and first.

I'm glad that you are feeling better. I hope that it will get even better with your days off and being together with your family. Have a wonderful time. No Thanksgiving here...

Sorry to read that you are not feeling good. Hope it's turning upwards soon! ♥

My mom always warned me about getting involved with NewWifey(tm) before we got married because, as she said, "she's a fallen woman". However when I gave her several good shots to the face to check, she staggered a bit but remained upright. So we got married, my mother being mistaken. I'm sorry about this poor woman though. Sucks not being able to get married just because you have round heels. It's not like you need them when you're always horizontal anyway (NOT DIRTY)....

I would understand them, when they would kick me out. But it is a thing of consequence here. Like with good parents. If they don't show that what you do has consequences, then what sense does education and values have? What do you think happens, when a kid could do everything without consequences? It is not that god is unforgiving. He is! Endlessly. But as I said, if I'm not remorseful there's no coming back. I would/could come back to the community if I were. But it would be a lie.

The painting is awesome. It's a bear cub, or? Somehow this is looking a bit like a dog, how it's resting. Do bears lie down like dogs?
from misfitstray :
omg, hopefully you will complain to those who rented that guesthouse to you and maybe you'll get something off the price when you made such awful experiences in the bathroom and electric wiring
from misfitstray :
Never heard of white lightning. Sounds fun to get wasted this way. I guess it would need just 3 of those things to get me drunk.
from dangerspouse :
Ahh. So it WAS real sex.
from dangerspouse :
What was that about a quickie?
from misfitstray :
Save travels my Dear and have a wonderful vacation with your family! xox
from dangerspouse :
Postal workers get up at 3am also? Then why the hell is my mail always late?? Lazy bastards, in those stupid square trucks and stained uniforms. No wonder all the cool kids are starting to use e-mail now. Bah! Humbug! (I'm a network announcer, so I'm on multiple stations every day. I wear different hats depending on the station I'm on: newscaster on all-news or news/talk format stations, traffic guy, weather guy, general sidekick/comic relief, etc. It keeps me on my toes. Much like the new elevated urinals in the mens room.) :)
from dangerspouse :
Puppy! Puppy puppy puppy puuuuuuuupy!! They're the Xanax of the animal kingdom. Between that and the pill, you should be alright. Hang in there :)
from dangerspouse :
Hey now, that was an unwarranted slight on my good brain! Er, name. I get up for work every day at 3am, so on the weekends, "sleeping in" means lounging around in bed til 4:30 or so. Sheer decadence, I tell ya! Anyway, it is SO worth it regardless when you can score $3.99 shell steaks. I mean, c'mon! I don't know if you know how much announcers make these days, but let's just say if it weren't for feral cats and roadkill, I'd be a strict vegetarian through necessity. (And I flew Frontier to CO too! My plane had intact wings, though. I took the upgrade.) :)
from misfitstray :
I always get my lashes done at the hairdressers. I dye them, no extensions. Too bad that this doesn't last very long. I hate to put on mascara each day. Same dislikes as you have. You'll meet Mr Right, don't be impatient!
from misfitstray :
I feel sorry for your nephew. I really hope that he will be able to do his classes next semester.
from misfitstray :
Sometimes I envy you for living in a warm place all year round, but if I would live there, I know that I would hate it and wouldn't feel well at all. But yeah, snow is pretty early this year.
from yellopenguin :
yes! so weird, right?
from misfitstray :
Never heard of tomato worms. Never had any on my plants so far. I guess they only live in the US. Well - hopefully! You poor one, to be talked to death at the DMV xox
from misfitstray :
And I like to read about your life and I envy you to live in the US so close to some of the worlds greatest wilderness areas. Hiking is definitely more fun in the US and Canada. It's strange how we always crave what we don't have. I guess that's just human.
from yellopenguin :
i click on your name because of the tarot reference and find lamentations about ICD10 that make me feel not so alone in the world. ha. love it.
from dangerspouse :
ICD-10 IS THE CODE OF THE DEVIL!!!! Seriously, expect the Rapture any day now (Code: APC666xx:4a)
from dangerspouse :
What's a "Libran"? Did you mean "Liberian"? (And I carry a tampon in my glovebox too!! But more for my own amusement than as a gas abatement device. To each their own.)
from dangerspouse :
I've been told - and fallen for - that lie too many times, Stinky.
from misfitstray :
Safe travels and have a wonderful time off with your family! xox
from dangerspouse :
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! May your farts smell like cake for the next several days. Enjoy the getaway - you deserve it :)
from dangerspouse :
You did a MUCH better treatment with your Golden Rat Corral than I did. Very funny origin of the phrase! And you're right - the meatloaf was a lot tastier than I would have expected. Kudos to them. But...your hometown is Colorado Springs, and you didn't tell me?? Gaaah!! I coulda ditched what's her name - the wife - and gone elk huntin' with you or something! Dammit. Oh well, next time. Thanks for the rockin' mention in your diary, babe :)
from dangerspouse :
Please erase all traces of my previous note and replace it with "Kids catch bad codes all the time." See? That one word omission changed everything. But I left it out. Because I too am an idiot. But at least I don't have kids, so I'm not THAT much of an idiot. Whew. Thank you. End transmission.
from dangerspouse :
Kids catch codes all the time. It's just part of nature.
from misfitstray :
I would like to study what you do and make that shit-load of money you do. ;) I'm an awesome student!
from dangerspouse :
I stand corrected. Fucking forgive me, father.
from dangerspouse :
You got the joke!! Well done :)
from misfitstray :
ok then, I'll take pictures :) Btw. Nice new car!
from misfitstray :
Thank you for asking! Yes, I'm fine again. I was out of order because of hip-surgery and didn't feel to update or surf around on the internet much. Luckily I got an apointment earlier and had my surgery on the 11th of August. I'm at work again from today on.
from whystinger :
I like a few Tool songs so I put this one on and nodded off, being relaxed by it, until I was rudely awaken by my phone ringing... It is amazing how different songs and music can do things to us. Some remind me of things of the past, some excite and motivate and some do other things. It amazes me that I will run until I am exhausted and can't go farther, then a certain song will come on the iPod and I just have to run and for some reason the energy is there. Awesome
from whystinger :
I had a big beef with my former mortgage company. Each year that forecast a hugh shortage and want to raise the mortgage. Each month I add a bit for the escrow account and when they figure the shortage, the send me a check for the overage and then the next month want to raise it... so. They forecast a $1500 shortage and I sent a check for the $1500 shortage as they requred. Two months later, they say I have an overage and refund $1200. Same next year, you are short $1500 and I pay and they send a $1200 refund. I think they like jacking with people. My employer also does the software lock out thing and lately is is a tragedy. Noting works and IT support says "you just don't know how to operate your computer." Grrrrrrrr
from misfitstray :
Thank you for your kind words. ♥ There are worse things in the world. I'm just a bit in a hole of self-pity. Life is good. Wow, a gun. Here in Germany it would be impossible to get a gun for normal people. Only police, soldiers, hunters and some rare people who seems to be in some kind of danger. And you'd only get it when you have a license and some kind of exam that you know how to use it properly and proove that you are able to hit the bulls eye.
from misfitstray :
I think sometimes people use those words not because they don't know the right word but because they like the other word better. They always use the new word and don't even thnk about it anymore. I think dong sounds nicer than dawn...
from whystinger :
Puppy in a kennel? At first I thought the kennel was one of the big outdoor things. I assume you mean a crate or carrier. Little thing may have difficulty or simply needs to learn to control Interesting about the oregano oil. Do you use that with tooth paste or instead of?
from misfitstray :
Would wish I'd live in my own house too. Who do you miss?
from misfitstray :
We use ICD 10 over here I'm sure. We do have different levels of insurances too but they all use the same coding system. I think doctors assistants or secretaries do the coding right from the beginning of the first billing. No big deal I think.
from misfitstray :
As far as I know our health system is already coded. When hospitals and doctors send in their billings to insurances they already are in a coded form. What is the reason for coding for the hospitals in the US? I would like to learn it, though. But I don't think american hispitals employ anyone outside the US
from misfitstray :
you are right on the eating thing. It's not only the US but the whole "western" world. That house looks pretty promising. I envy you for having the funds to get such a thing. If the neighborhood is ok too I would go for it. It would be my dream to purchase one on my own. In Canada.
from misfitstray :
well, even if you don't mind, it could have been, that you do and it is not the fine art to do what I did. Congratulations to your new contract with the other company! Sounds pretty good.
from misfitstray :
I'm sorry that I cited you without asking you first. I hope you can forgive me!
from whystinger :
Thank for the note. I didn't mention, but some fish doesn't bode well as farm raised. Salmon - I try not to eat farm raised salmon, because it is raised on food pellets (guess) and evidently, when salmon is not eating a wild diet, it doesn't have much omega 3! I will eat it if I want the taste, but I try to get wild alaskan salmon - much less mercury and much more omega 3. After reading your diary, I found another article by accident...
from whystinger :
Corn. Mostly GMO today and that is what I see as a big problem. I read recently about how the archaeologists now think that grains were used as a food, only when other foods could not be found. So at least some of the grain family should not be eaten. Research some beef. The hot ticket is "grass fed beef." I asked my doctor about that - she told me cattle are to eat grass and not grain. Also I read about it a bit and found the same thing - cows are fed some antibiotics due to corn... From what I gather, grass fed beef has a significant amount of omega 3 fatty acids but grain fed cattle does not... wow, huh?
from dangerspouse :
You wouldn't happen to still have the number of that multi-millionaire, would you...?
from nineofswords :
Yes! That is my same floor plan. The interiors shown are from the model house for my builder. They will eventually sell that very house and when they do, I might buy it. My parents also want it.
from misfitstray :
Tried the video now at home on my lappy again and it played. Must be a thing of our work server who doesn't allow everything in. Nice houses, really wow. They look pretty expensive too. You have the same kitchen as shown?
from misfitstray :
As long as you feel home in your big house all is good, I think :) Thank you for that recipe! Well, I'm not much into eating meat. I'm not a vegetarian but I just don't crave meat very often. If I do, I mostly eat chicken or so. But I will try this out when I'm up to meat again.
from misfitstray :
I get what you are doing. Thought you do some IT-coding and that you are a nerd on this kind of things. Especially after that entry with the SecondLife site. Nice avatar btw ♥ Can't open the video as it seems it has no connection to the server or so. Too bad. But that house up on the page looks pretty big. For just one (two) person(s)? Wow!
from misfitstray :
Sounds very nice where you live! I can't listen to music while I have to work (neither at my home nor at the office in Munich) as clients call all the time. Not good if they hear music in the background. What do you do for a living exactly? Sounds complicated.
from misfitstray :
Signed up for last.fm instead of Pandora. Nearly the same, slighly different music-choice through different methods. last.fm is totally ok too, I think. You know acornotravez too here on dland? She lives in Houston too, but she hasn't updated in long while. Houston wouldn't be my type of city. Too hot climate... I love Vancouver, though. I think my new home town, Zwiesel, wouldn't suit you. It's very small. Only around 9700 citizens. Nice pic!
from misfitstray :
For how long are you divorced? I'm sorry that it didn't work out.
from misfitstray :
Pandora is not available in Germany :( It says on their website : "We are deeply, deeply sorry to say that due to licensing constraints, we can no longer allow access to Pandora for listeners located outside of the U.S., Australia and New Zealand. We will continue to work diligently to realize the vision of a truly global Pandora, but for the time being we are required to restrict its use. We are very sad to have to do this, but there is no other alternative. "
from misfitstray :
I'll try it. Thanks for the infomation ♥
from misfitstray :
Is Pandora Channel only for the US or could I try that in Germany too? I don't have TV cable or satellite or any radio in my home. Just internet. I have Netflix and Amazon Prime and Watchever (german version of Netflix)
from misfitstray :
I think it would be yummy with hazelnuts. But I guess it will not stick together very good. As I'm not on a low carb diet I might just use grahams or normal spelt-flour. I love spelt. Why are you on low carb? You have celiac disease?
from misfitstray :
cartilage - sorry
from misfitstray :
That looks very yummy! I'd try it with strawberries. Could I replace the almondflour with something else? I'm allergic to almonds. And what is erytritol? I just need a new hip. It wasn't going roundly so they newly shaped the hipjoint last August in an endoscopic surgery. It didn't help much, though. Now I need a new hip. Not much cartiledge left, which means pain with each step I take at the moment.
from misfitstray :
AAAAAAWWWWWWW! They are really cute! I love the big bat ears of Dexter. Thought they were bigger. Like hellhounds or so. ;) Thank you for posting!!
from misfitstray :
Maybe you could post a pic or two of your dogs? Please!
from dangerspouse :
Thank you very much for the thoughtful and detailed note you left at my place. I appreciate all the info! For the moment, her doctor doesn't want her putting anything in her body though other than pills and a few "safe" foods. But when she's outta the woods, I'll pass the list by him and see if there's anything in them that won't kill her. Thanks again! Now go have a nice, relaxing massage. You deserve it. I know a guy.... ;)
from misfitstray :
Hm. No problem if you do the cooking, do the dishes, ironing and scrub the floors. Besides that I only would be there half the week due to work in Munich. But don't bring your nephew! ;)
from dangerspouse :
Hey, I just saw you added me to your NOT DIRTY list of worthy reads. Thank you so much! I'm extremely flattered. If I haven't done so already, I'll reciprocate. (And kick that 19 year old gun totin' sponge of a nephew out already!)
from misfitstray :
Come over and visit me then :) I don't envy you for the problems you have with your nephew. I know from own experiences with mine (I have 3) that it is very difficult. They just ache to do their own mistakes and we can't hinder them as sad as it is. Just bought an album of Nine Lashes (world we view). You know them? They are not bad. And I looked up pics of the voice of Seether. Not my type as I'm totally not into facial hair... And while I was on their website I saw that they are in Munich on the 10th of August. I might go. But as it's a Monday I might be farer away at home in Zwiesel in homeoffice. Tickets are only 27.50 EUR. Well, a bit of time to think it over.
from misfitstray :
I love Chevelle. I actually have a few songs from them on my iPod. Don't know how any of the members of those band members look like. I just like their music. It doesn't matter to me how they look like but their voices and the music they make. But I will have a look at that singer of Seether. I'm curious. I'm totally into alternativ rock music as long as it ismelodic. I don't get music without a melody... same with modern jazz... maybe I'm too dumb for this.
from life-my-way :
I just saw your note...if you want my login info, email me at mkklose at gmail dot com and i'll send it along. Still low carb and down 17 pounds since March. This WOE is great and I think I'll be able to hang with indefinitely. Thanks for your help getting started!!!
from comebacktome :
I hear you. I had friends, but they had no money, or no leave (vacation time). This is why I have travelled about half of the time completely on my own, because I refuse to miss out on the adventure when other people don't have their shit together. I blog about it and everything ;)
from misfitstray :
Tried tool, it's not bad! How do you like Seether and Breaking Benjamin then? They must be likable to you too. I guess. they are my favourites at the moment. I have one Hozier song on my playlist. Their last hit. I liked it. Don't know much else from them. Estes Park sounds nice. I guess it's beautiful up there. Wish I had money to travel *sigh*
from misfitstray :
Finally listened to that John Mayer Song you posted the other day. Hm, not really my thing besides that I really don't get it what women find in him. Well, tastes are different... Though, we might be sisters, with all that gypsy in us. :) I'd move with you in a heartbeat to Colorado. Where do you stay, when you are on a vacation over there?
from misfitstray :
Thank you ♥♥♥
from misfitstray :
Thank you for the explanation! :)
from misfitstray :
very good entry! ♥ I'm totally with you on this theme, even if I don't know who this person is. I live in Germany. I don't know Bruce Jenner. Should I?
from whystinger :
I read the link. AWESOME! She would have eaten the marshmallow immediately...
from whystinger :
Thanks for the link! I am not a Bruce Jenner fan, having had my fill of the Jenners and Kardashians, really don't like Kim, etc (even through I don't know her). That said, I was touched by the seemingly genuine support Kim give Bruce. That elevated her in my mind. I don't understand transgender, but I too am tired of all the haters. If Bruce is doing this for genuine reasons, I support him. I was a bit suspicious of the upcoming reality show, thinking he did it for the money, but there is too much talk him him in the past, "flirting" (for lack of a better word) with transgender. Thinking of it, he may as well do the reality show because people are going to accuse him of doing it for the money (regardless of if he does the show or not) so he/she may as well do the show. The other thing that has changed my opinions is about two years ago, I reconnected with a friend from my old neighborhood. He is now a she. I have learned that she is pretty much the same person as he was, but... He also has about six kids, all of whom support her (my friend). Make sense? I don't gotta like it, I just gotta accept and respect it. I neither like or dislike it but wish the haters would stop. We don't know what they have went through.
from whystinger :
My soon-to-be-ex has that immediate gratification thing with money and a few other things. Won't walk off a job, but it was a MAJOR cause in the divorce. One of our nephews on her side is the same way, except he is more like your nephew... She knows the frustration (from watching her nephew Trey) but does not work on her issues...
from dangerspouse :
100% Woot! Well done :)

You don't have to apologize for anything. It's your diary, with equal emphasis on "your" and "diary". Unless you intend to market it, you shouldn't give a flying fuck what anyone else thinks. (Germany, huh? I may have to adjust my vacation plans....)
from dangerspouse :
Hey hey, well done on finally finding where they hid your Notes section! Lol. Must have been a bit of a shock, huh? Oh, and thank you very much for the info on almond flour. I'm not on Facebook, but I can certainly check other online resources. Much appreciated. And double, super, extra "THANK YOU" for saying you'd read my silly blog. Yay!! I'll do the same for yours - even the lengthy entry about narcissists :)
from dangerspouse :
Take your granny's advice. No kid is worth all that chicken salad. My mom woulda shot me...if my dad didn't get to me first.
from portlypete :
Randomly, I accessed your diary. I can't believe anyone spends that much on shampoo, which is basically, detergent, perfume and salt. (http://sci-toys.com/ingredients/shampoo.html) What?
from whystinger :
Love your 5/5/15 entry about God and the Universe. It IS plausible. After all, we say God is everywhere and the universe is everywhere. A motivational speaker once said similar. I've heard "pray to God or the Universe if you don't believe in God." I think in terms of the universe when thinking of the Big Bang Theory (theory, not the TV show) and creation. The bible says God said "let there be light" and it was. God created the earth in 7 days, but I think it is arrogant that we think it was created in 7 earth days. Our day is got to be shorter than one of God's days or one of the Universe's days.
from dangerspouse :
Can you use almond flour as a 1:1 substitute for wheat flour? Does it work in traditional yeast bread recipes? I've been somewhat curious about that lately, since I'd like to try it.
from life-my-way :
One more thanks for the ketogenesis info. I'm wrapping up my first week of it, losing weight, and feeling not at all terrible physically while feeling positively triumphant emotionally. This is amazing and I am grateful. Cheers!
from life-my-way :
Thanks for all of the low carb info. I know you're not talking to me, but in many ways you are talking to me, saying what I need to hear when I need to hear it. So thanks a million. Your new low-carb friend, Katherine
