A friend and two of his friends, that I happen to know, went camping and no one thought to take TP.

One idiot wiped with poison ivy!!!

But being the smart idiot he is, he remembered one 'scientific fact': poison ivy breaks down with UV light. Also being a knowledgeable smart idiot, he remembered that the sun produces UV light. And the reports are, and from himself not just the unfortunate witnesses, that he quickly combined the two and decided to lay on his back like a turtle, holding his knees to his chest, and pointing the affected area at the sun.

No feedback on if the UV worked on the poison ivy, but the reports are it did thoroughly sunburn the affected parts.

*stumbles in, makes tea*
dang, this diet stuff......it's hard to get "acclimated" to lower calories and such. It seems to weaken me. low energy and such.( I barely have the strength to scratch all this exquisite poison oak). But, I'm determined to lose a few lbs. before the burn.

well, compression this weekend in Reno! yay!!

With Larry on the road, I'm eating much less. I'm seeing weight loss, but I don't trust it.

I saw a nutritionist last week, or the ghost of Christmas future. I've been taking instruction. Blood tests showed opportunities I can't deny. It's not hard and I feel better. Not weighing though, just checking how clothes fit.

Yggy, get a bag of string cheese! It's not too bad in the fat/calories (80 calories, 5g fat) but has 8g protein. It might help perk you up.

Its always annoying when people ask advise, go against it, then get mad at you for being right.
The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

Hey Triken!
Having talked to the always-jubilant Delle on the telephone some time back, I am also looking forward to meeting her.

As for a ticket, that ought not be difficult. I just looked at Craigslist in Arizona, and there are tickets being offered below face value.

Are you still on the road?

Also there are the 1000 tickets that are being offered on OMG through BMORG. Register her profile on August 2. That registration closes on Aug 5 and then those tickets get sold to the first 1000 on the queue. Should not be a problem and I am looking forward to seeing Delle once again!!!
