Webmail Peevishness

Yargh. Yahoo webmail a while ago saw fit not to re-include the "jump to folders starting with letter" feature when one has a folder drop-down list open and one pushes a letter key.

I wrote them a polite but peevish little note saying that I'd noticed that and I used that while they had it and I want it back please.

Freewill of the Week

Gemini Horoscope for week of August 12, 2004

In Half Magic, a children's book by Edward Eager, four kids discover an enchanted coin with an odd quirk: It grants just half of any wish. Naturally they try to compensate, imagining how to double the scope of each wish so that when only 50 percent of it comes true, it's exactly what they wanted. Your immediate future has certain resemblances to their story, Gemini. Though you will be in possession of a kind of magic, it may tend to work incomplete wonders. Consider imitating the kids' strategy: Make your wish larger than what you actually need.

I've always loved that book...

Cancer Horoscope for week of August 12, 2004

From the day we're born till the day we die, we need teachers. In a perfect world, each of us would have at least one mentor who looked after our learning needs, constantly adding new lessons to our ever-evolving curriculum. Since you probably haven't been living in a perfect world, however, you may have only rarely been blessed with the luxury of a personal educator. You've mostly had to be your own guide, with an occasional assist from me. Here's one of those assists now: In the next six weeks, you should put a high priority on developing a long-term lesson plan. What things do you need to learn most between now and August, 2009?

Shoulder

August bus pass, unlimited rides: $34.00
Visit to doctor at urgent care center: $80.00
Bottle of standard 200 mg generic ibuprofen: $3.00 a few years ago
Prescription for partially-narcotic pain meds: $8.80
Knowing that it's not dislocated, just a tendon strain or something: priceless.

Narcotics 101 for your seven-year-old

"Something bad happened to my shoulder and it hurt really bad, so I went to see the doctor. And the doctor gave me medicine to make the shoulder not hurt so much. And this medicine is so strong that it makes me lose control of my body and my mind a little. It's not enough that I have to stay in bed, just enough to make me really, really silly."

"Is Strongbad controlling you?"

"...No."

"Strongbad's a really bad role model."

Handy-dandy pill bottles

I am absolutely enamoured of this prescription bottle. It looks like a standard prescription bottle to start, but it has a reversible cap.

One side of the cap is almost the standard prescription adultproof cap, except it's dented a little funny around the edge.

The other side... the other side is the bottom of the adultproof cap, and it says, "Caution: Not Child Resistant!" on it. It screws on the other way nice and easy, with a lot of cap to grab on to when twisting, and it doesn't take much of a twist to get off.

My thoughts are moving slowly through nice, warm, spicy water. Mmm, good thoughts. Also, good drugs.


They had to evidently run a background check on me for drug offenses before giving me my prescription. I find that amusing. My humor is pastedeonyey.

You, on the other hand, are not Barbie.
