Sorbets can be amazing! Or a coconut ice-cream could do a pretty good impression of dairy.

This won't help you right now but do you spend any time in Las Vegas? Later this year Gelato Messina, a Sydney institution, will be opening their first US store in suburban Las Vegas. Their gelatos and sorbets are FREAKING AMAZING. If you're ever in the area check them out. You will not be disappointed.

DAMMIT BILL!!!
Stupid people at work found a really graphic "viewer discretion advised" forklift safety video on you tube to show in our safety team meeting today. It was presented as company content, viewing mandatory. They did not show the warning screen, just started the video. Pretty awful, very painful to sit through, and I actually had to get up and leave the room. I waited outside, walked around some, and then headed back in when I figured it was over, and I had composed myself. They paged me to get back in the meeting room. NOT ONE PERSON asked me about it, whether I was o.k. or not. Dammit Bill! When I said to the meeting leader that I found it too graphic, he rolled his eyes, and said, "It was just a re-enactment." and, "it had an impact didn't it?" This while other people grinned. They suck. Every morning, and in meetings we are exhorted to ask our co-workers how we are doing, find out about each other's well being, show we care... ah Bill.

Damnit, Bill...the only "viewer discretion advised" forklift safety video that should exist - on YouTube or anywhere else - is Stapelfarher Klaus.

Srsly, Elorrum, that was particularly shitty of them not to warn the crowd and then be such asshats to you when you came back in the room. I'm sorry.

I really wanted to celebrate my 55th birthday and surviving 10 years of an unwanted divorce, on the playa. Didn't get a ticket so will turn Molly Hatchet up loud, eat my dark chocolate, pout and wait for next year. Everybody have a great burn and take plenty of pictures for poor pouty people like me.

Dammit Bill!

Can't you get that rideshare person to give me some idea how much "stuff" she has, or will have, to load on my truck? If I don't get some feedback soon she's going to find her sorry ass finding another ride to the burn.

What did you do with the pictures that were posted from the Meet'n'Greet? I know there were a bunch posted, but, where??

Bill, I'm just not going to let you play with my computer any more, if you keep hiding stuff in it.

I don't think Bill is in the business of doing things right, or of fixing them. he's just a whipping boy... and dammit, it would be nice if he could do more. Dammit, BILL!

Dammit Bill! First with the IBS - which is fucking painful and always inconvenient in its own right. Did you really have to kick it up such a huge notch?

Passing out as I stood up to grab a cloth to cool the fever -- as the cold water filled up the sink to the brim -- taking down the 3-tiered metal and glass self as I fell, dumping all its contents on top of me -- was an interesting twist on an old theme.

Having my husband find me there - at first indiscernible under the pile of rubble - passed out with my pants down to my ankles as the water in the sink reached the spill-over stage... Sweet look, Bill. I especially appreciated that part. More even than the pukefest upon awakening.

And now, Bill, I'd appreciate even more if you could just make it stop, now. Twelve hours is just too long. And I do love the colour red, but seriously Bill, it should NOT be coming out of my ass in such quantities. It's just plain scary, even if I know the inflammation will be long gone before anyone can take a "look see" at it and consultation would just result in another head-scratching session as they tell me there's nothing wrong in there.

I was really hoping, Bill, that last time was a special one-time gift. If you're thinking of making a habit of this, I think it's time to say that I'm not that thrilled with it. :cry:
Worry is a misuse of imagination

She had blue skin, And so did he.
He kept it hid And so did she.
They searched for blue Their whole life through,
Then passed right by- And never knew.”

dammit Bill! got what I paid for with online glasses. ow ow ow, headache, and eye pain, from the progressive bifocals, and I just wore them indoors for a little while. blurry. dang. time is the issue, so I'll do single vision, and cheater readers for a while longer. I might try a local optician just to see what the problem is and what I'm looking at in terms of time and cost. The prescription is brand new, and I didn't opt to continue my vision coverage for new glasses. The super cheap single vision glasses are o.k. though, so that's nice. Stop laughing Bill.

Damn it Bill, why won't he call? My life is unraveling, and I'm needing some shred of hope that I have a better future than my recent past. I want to get on with a new start, and I can hear you scoffing because I'm 50. I want to do this and help others and not be part of the problem anymore. And my path includes Rainwater, but he's all bound up in his nuts life, and I guess I'm just a whimsical dalliance to him. Well that's not me! At the same time I'm looking at him as my savior, and that no doubt isn't him. Thanks a LOT for getting me Paper Towns, where I was just smacked upside the head with THAT lesson, to not look at others as thru a mirror, but thru a window. Got it fucker! My morale is tanking because of my brain interfering and being unappreciative. Crap, it's like you have been throwing Koosh balls of insight at me randomly for a fucking month! Fine, I asked for it, but you don't have to keep giggling when they hit. Asshole.

Dammit Bill I can only remember part of the poem


"He saw her spirit and ran free with it...he showed her the fire that ran wild within his own soul and together.....
despite the storms of life...together they set each other ablaze and danced in the flames"
