      Wait until I turn 50 then we’ll see lol

      50 is kind of an anticlimax, because you spend a whole year worrying about it after you turn 49. :)

  3. Wishing the very happiest of birthdays to my dear Pittwitch! Love you! :hug: :wub:  :birthday: :cheers: :bday:

  4. Because I think we need wondrous things in our lives, I decided to donate to help purchase JRR Tolkien’s home to help create a Tolkien Centre:
    https://www.projectnorthmoor.org/

    I don’t know if anything will come of it, but I feel like I should do some little thing for all the joy he’s given me for all these years. 

  5. Wishing @DemonGoddess a very Happy Birthday, from one cranky old thing to another! :wub:  :hug:  :bday: :wish: :party:

      Happy birthday! Hope the coming year is less hectic than the last one.

  6. So, it’s been a rough few days. My mom is in hospital with congestive heart failure, exacerbated by COPD, atrial fibrillation, and Parkinson’s. It’s been one step forward and two steps back for the past 4 days, but at least I’m allowed to see her for a couple of hours each day.

    So, if I’m a bit more absent, or crankier than usual, I apologize in advance.

      Ah fuck. I know I’m not around as much as I should be,  but you got a lot of folks here as well standing at your side. Hopefully soon it’ll be all steps forward soon enough, but stay strong. As has been said, your mother is lucky to have you at her side in these times.

  8. Well. Five days without Internet thanks to Isaias, and I’m counting myself lucky because I still had power throughout. My neighborhood is mostly private houses and was largely in the dark from Tuesday until about 11:15pm last night. And ConEd is getting an increase this year… :blink: :pissed:

      Thank you all, and for the good wishes :hug: 

      It’s a work in progress. I mean, I accidentally turned up at work yesterday. The universally recognised protocol is to call in sick, but then I haven’t been well… :shifty:

      :wub: to you all.

      Love you @BronxWench and @Melrick

  11. I want to wish a very Happy Birthday to the amazing Melrick! If it were possible, I’d send you a Key Lime pie from JG Melon’s, but you’ll have to settle for a virtual hug. :hug:

  15. Went to the 50th Anniversary Tour show for Jethro Tull last night. Ian Anderson’s voice is rough, but gods, that flute of his… and he can still play on one leg! :lol: :wub:

      Sadly, I can sympathise.  This has been a nightmare 2 months for me and it’s not getting any better.  Now we have to find out why mum has lost vision in her right eye.  Here’s hoping things improve for the both of us!

      It’s sad. But burning down and being rebuilt is kind of what cathedrals do. Notre Dame will rise again.

      We will build it up, and we will come back home… home again.

       

  23. So, there is something very wrong with the universe when my 24-year old niece is undergoing chemo for Ewing’s sarcoma.

    Have I ever mentioned how much I fucking hate cancer?

      I’m so sorry to hear that.  Cancer is just… beyond words.  Fingers crossed everything works out well for her.

      She’s doing round 5 now. She needed a transfusion first, but she’s at least eating which makes my sister feel better. Next week, more testing: PET-MRI and bloods, and the week after that is round 6 of chemo. It’s aggressive treatment for a very aggressive cancer, and she’s staying focused on what matters to her...preparing for an art show.

      I love my amazing, talented, brave niece.

  24. I’m back from vacation, and ready to start planning the next one. :blink:
