My bunco group's Christmas party is tonight. I look forward to it all year. Ugly sweaters, white elephant, lots of eating and drinking. I'm bringing that thing you may have seen on FB or Pinterest recently--Rum Chata/Andes Mint crock pot hot chocolate. And I'm making more low carb marzipan.

SIL and her fiancé will be here tomorrow through Christmas morning.*sigh*. Her main objective will be packing up her room. I'm getting my guest room back, dammit.

Or it could be that I usually post from work and the company I work for integrated the phone and local servers in all of the offices so they are run off of the main server in California.

I get the Florida weather by looking out my window. How's the view from your mom's basement?

Nope. And when they do, they are disabled so they won't work, including bathrooms.
Hang a (neck)tie on the door handle.

I can think of a bunch of other very black humor responses starting with Private Benjamin and going do ( ahem) down from there.

I've gone through intermittent periods where it says I am in Knoxville, so it does happen.

Why is it always "mom's basement" with you trolls?

...and Kennedy had a secretary named Lincoln. Coincidence is not proof.

BTW, I didn't say that Angela was faking her death. I believe she brought that up. I just mentioned that Sublime had participated in a cancer-death-hoax recently on another forum. It happens quite a bit on the internet.

Are we trying to attach a negative connotation to people who happen to live in a basement? Or attic?

Well, I live in both, and I find your stereotypes offensive and hateful.

I demand you stop your basementatticphobia and accept me for who I am! Otherwise you are just an intolerant basementatticphobe and deserve to burn at the stake while wild dogs eat your genitalia!

I deserve a parade, dammit!!!

Recognize me or else....!!!!

You can have whatever parade you want. Gather all your basement dwelling brothers and sisters, submit the correct forms to the county for the parade permit, hire the necessary security, and march away. Of course your basement dwelling does not affect me or my life, so forgive me if I don't attend. But have fun.

So you're coming out of the basement. You finally ready to come out of the closet too?

Sorry Dog, but you set yourself up for that one.

I can breathe! Scary moment though. Just after the doc numbed my back to get me ready for the needles, t he entire hospital lost ALL POWER. ALL. POWER. For just a couple of seconds. Stuff that should not lose power, like the imaging machine they were using with me, did. It took a while for it to fully reboot, but at least the numbing stuff had extra time to work so the lung draining went very well. 1.3 liters of fluid came out of the lyres round my left lung.

So I can breathe again! And sleep!!!

I am quite happy. Exact they found a tiny blood lot in the other lung so I go home tomorrow with injections to give myself. Yay.

But I get to go home tomorrow!

Oh and the troll here said I was trying hard to price something, which I fairly interpreted as disbelief.

Yay for you.

Are those the ones you have to give yourself in the belly?
