It's probably for the best that counting pines were driven almost to extinction on Discworld:

A counting pine seed coming to rest anywhere on the Disc picks up the most effective genetic code, and grows into whatever best suits the climate, usually usurping the local plants.


This is not a good thing - it's an invasive species problem of apocalyptic proportions.

And; Back in the Real World, a storm is brewing.
The wind on the beach is lifting and blowing sand into drifts.

I Attach my Keys to my Clothes.
Somehow on a day with low ground visibility,

I lost my keys on The Beach!

Someday soon, Lost Keys will send out a beacon.
For me, that day is not Today. Lost. Gone.

Of course, I have spares.
I did not Test the house Spare when I had it made.

The spare house key does not work. (fuck)
How hard are my quarters to bread into?

For a 10 year old, it's a 60 second job.
For me, it took a little longer.

I'll be needing a key.

Edit: ***
How many days was that?
Two? Any is Too Many.

What a Weird Experence.
What are The Chances of Finding My Keys?

On The Beach, in those conditions?
Astronomical. Astronomical is the answer.

Scientific Notation is Required to work with numbers that Large.

Remember, The Conditions?
I was out there, because of The Conditions.

The Conditons:
The Warm Wind before Rain was blowing.

The sand was Dry.
It has been day after day of Sun.

The Top 2 inches to 10 inches of sand were, generally, AirBound.
Not great conditions for SunBathing.

Stand there long enough in Shorts and it will look like you Shaved.
Gusts of wind will come out of NoWhere and stir up Trouble.

If you try that shit, wear glasses.
And; Don't Lose Your Keys!

Under those conditions small drifts form, quickly.
I can kick a large rock around, looking at it,

Judging The Rock's Worth; Walk away, turn to reconsider and the darned thing is nearly buried in sand, again.
Small drifts form areas of waves that echo the waves at Sea.

The wind causes Waves and Drifts with small dense sand on the Windward side and large, light sand particles on the LeeWard Side.
The tides are full of sand, this time of year. It seems that way, to me. The sand is deposited at 6 to 8 inches every night.

Some stormy nights go above and beyond the roadway.
People scrape it off and drive over it, until it goes away.

How in The World could I lose My Keys in those conditions and Ever, Ever find them, again?
That's a number that is nearly as large as the US National Foreign Debt. It's a Big Fucker.

Keys are Heavy.
When they hit the sand, they break through the top Solid Layer.
They form a little Saturn like micro-climate and are No More.

I have My Keys.
I'm not complaining.
Not really.

Judy and I know.
It was No Miracle.

It was No Miracle that I was so tired and clumsy that I lost my footing and fell, near driftwood.
It was No Miracle that other people walked across the same pile of debris.

It was No Miracle that others stumbled or fell walking there, too.
It was No Miracle that Strangers on The Beach, noticed my Keys.

How fucking Amazing is That?
Well...How Amazing is Judy?

She was There when I lost my Keys.
She was There when My Keys were found.

I'm going to put my Phone Number on My Keys.
Maybe, I should put Judy's Number on My Keys.

That might belong in the Awesome Thread.
If it were not for Brother Void, I'd feel so alone in my connection to It All.

http://www.dailyafflictions.com/affliction7.html

It's Just that I don't have much for Friends.
The ones I do have, tend to be Cathoic.

So...I told them about my Keys.
I Knew those Keys were LOST to The World.

They said they would Pray.
I said, "Teach it to me."
"Chanting calms us down."

Helen gave me a direct Order.
And; Silly Me, I obeyed it.

When I told them, "My Keys have been found."

I did not say it That Way. I said,
"I do not want to Believe Saint Antony found my Keys.
Neither can I deny the Fact, My Keys have been found."

One woman said, "Of course, Saint Antony Found them."
A man I really like, said, "You are a Doubting Thomas."

Jeeze. I do not want to feed weird childish ideas of God.

What??
What is True??

God has a Hierarchy and Poor Saint Antony is in charge of the Lost and Found?
How many years has he been doing that Job?

I did suggest that someone call his Secretary.
Lost and Found may be a large division.

It is as useful a FairyTail as any, I suppose.
But; But...Was it simply mundane Reality or a small miracle?

Can I just say how much I want a cold (but not ice-cold) pale ale in a sparkling clean pilsner glass with about a half-inch of head right now? Because I do. But I can't because of medication I'm taking. Oh crappy day, let me count the ways:

  • Start the morning with a quarter inch of ice completely covering my car
  • Finally get to work, and my computer requires a hard-reset twice in an hour because some mysterious ailment is causing it to lock up completely, including task manager.
  • Now that my computer has stopped crashing, I find that the source material I'm supposed to be using for my project is wrong in ways that would have been obvious if it had been reviewed with it's intended purpose in mind. So now I have to wait for someone to show me where the source material for the source material is, which appears to be correct but who the fuck knows.
  • Work is over, time to pay some bills. One of the hospitals wanting money from me apparently hasn't had a billing system update since the late 90s, as they only accept payments by mail or over the phone. I call to make my monthly payment, go through a dozens menus punching in my account number and birthdate and mothers maiden name and what age I got my first pimple only to be met with "We're sorry, we could not understand that. Let us transfer you to a customer service representative." I'm on hold for about 15 minutes when finally the phone starts ringing and someone picks up and ... oh fuck, it's a recording: "We're sorry, there's no one here to answer your call. Please leave a message or try again tomorrow."
  • Holy fuck. Fine, let me call my insurance company and see why my health insurance appears to be cancelled. Cue another round of phone tree menus. They tell me that my ID number has changed, and that's why all my claims since December 01 have been rejected. "Didn't you get the new card?" No. "Didn't you check your account on the website?" Yes, but the ID on the website matches the card I have. "Oh, well that's because the part of your ID number that changed isn't shown on the website." (Confused? Me too. My card says [not actual number] FDR94859, and the website says 94859, and apparently my new ID is FDC94859). Ok, can I get a new card? "Yea, let me transfer you?" Holding. "Ok, you'll get your new card in 10-14 business days. Anything else you need?" Yea, how do I get these claims rerun? I'm not paying $450 for a shot and a 20 minute discussion with my doc. "Oh let me transfer you." Holding. "Hi, you can't do anything about it now, but when you get your card call your medical providers and ask them to refile the claim with the new info. We're not going to do it or help you, even though this is our fault for not informing you your ID changed, for not sending you a new card, and for not displaying all relevant account info on our website."
  • "Oh, and just for fun, since you haven't met your deductible, we're not going to pay for any of that $1600 surgery you need, that's totally not elective. So have fun with another monthly medical bill."

And that is how a well-off person has a first-world shitty day.

In lieu of beer, I'm going to binge on M*A*S*H and barbeque wings tonight.

Tonight i finally found out where the funny smell in my kitchen i'm noticing for a few weeks now comes from. The wall behind my built in kitchen furniture is soaked from the water connections down, and some funny coloured stuff is growing on it.
I'm fearing a major bill coming …

SurgicalSteel;
The US has a bizarre medical delivery system.

Are you in the US?
Divide and Conquer.

We have been divided among For Profit Companies.
We are a defeated people. You might be Lucky.

There are ways of getting good medical care in the US.
A person must get past The Gate Keepers.

You got past the Gate Keepers in delivery.
Loads of people can't get past the Gate Keepers in delivery.

The front office accepted your card.
Back office did their Job.

If the front office will not accept a person's card.
Or; Horrors; That person has No Card. That's bad.

oh, Yes. You may be walking into PaperWork Hell.
I'm so sorry. I'm an American, too. It's bad.

By the time they are done with you,
You are going to think, 'You got off easy.'

No matter what a NightMare it is.
They will let you know how much worse it could have been.

I had a friend that Buried his wife after a long illness,
He had Good Government Insurance he had taught for years.

Twenty-Percent of her last year of life was Half a Million Dollars.
I was visiting him, when The Bill arrived. He was so UpSet!

I took the PaperWork for him.

She had received treatment at a Teaching Hospital.
There are Resources for Absorbing those costs.

He would have been crushed by that financial burden.
He had been so emotional crushed by that last year.

The added burden of a half million dollar debt was too much for him.
How many people don't have someone like me to step in and fix things?

Me! I'm one of those people.
I need someone to step in.

I can do other people's paperwork.
I need help to get Mine done.

Sometimes, it is a smart idea to Swap PaperWork.
Sometimes, it's worth the cost to hire an attorney.

The attorney will bill The Company with the same professionalism they billed you.

Background:
Just moved into a new place, 3x as big as the previous one. So that's awesome. In a renovated industrial part of town, loft living, etc.

Problems:
1. "Alright, time to call up AT&T or charter to hook up internet." *Looks around* *finds no cable or phone connections*
Turns out new place has no phone or cable hookup. So I'm going to have to call AT&T, work sometime out with the landlord, and find out who's cheaper to come in and install the line. Lame.

2. "Yuck, 5:30am for work, time to take a shower." *turns on water, wait for it to get hot* "damn this water is taking awhile, I should get a big bucket to put there and use the water for plants in the yard." *still waiting.* "Hmm..." *water does no go above luke warm, proceeds to take cold-ish shower*

Fucking misrible. Nothing worse than taking a cold-ish shower on a cold morning. Didn't help that I don't have everything unpacked yet, so I had to shuffle though stuff in order to find the oatmeal/pans/kettle/tea for breakfast.

TLDR version: Goddamn first world problems.

Rage.

I was homeless for a year and a half. Before that, my housing had been unstable for a long time. Now I've been stably housed since July. I'm still v poor and my sweetheart is homeless.

I'm a big podcast listener. It's one of the main activities of my life.

Everyone making podcasts seems to assume that homeless people aren't listening, and that they can talk about us/them accordingly. I've heard some podcasters even say so explicitly, that homeless people obviously don't have smartphones or ipods or whatever. This is super false. Most homeless folks I've ever known, their phone is their one expensive possession. It's an extremely useful and versatile tool to have when you don't have much. And a lot of us had a lot of time to kill. Even if you have work and school, you somehow end up sitting around a lot. That's just a part of it.

I was listening to one just now and they were saying foolish shit about homeless people, and I turned it off when they changed the subject because once I was done saying "fuck you" over and over at my phone, I found I couldn't care about anything they had to say. I'll get over it and listen to the rest, but I need this rant first.

One person told a story of how she brought her Thanksgiving leftovers to a guy who was living in the park near her place, and he said that he couldn't possibly eat another bite of turkey. And then a different person told how he had brought a homeless guy a blanket and the guy said he didn't need it. So these two ranted about how rude this was and how these homeless folks should just take whatever they're given.

First of all, by your own telling of events, these people were both polite. I'm sure if they were like "I don't want your fucking turkey", you would have made a point of that in the story. If a housed person said that they were full and didn't want any turkey, that would be fine. So you're holding homeless people to a higher standard of politeness than anyone else. Which seems bass-ackward to me.

And they were like, well maybe they didn't want turkey/ a blanket right then, but they could save it for later. (To which another guy on the show said that if they were good at planning ahead then they wouldn't be homeless, which, fuck you. FUCK YOU. I don't know what kind of meritocracy you think you're living in where the only thing between you in a house and me on the street is organizational skills, but you are fucking dreaming.)
When I was living in a park, I had to carry all of my possessions in cloth grocery bags and my purse. I had to keep everything physically touching me while I slept so that I would wake up when other homeless people inevitably stole from me. So no, maybe I didn't want extra blankets. Maybe I didn't want unrefrigerated leftovers that a raccoon would dig into while I slept. Take literally one fucking MINUTE to imagine the circumstances of my life before you tell me how to live. Carrying around leftover turkey...!

It all started from them talking about exercise equipment in public parks and whether homeless folks work out on it. I'm sure they do! You'll find that homeless people are very similar to actual real people, with a diversity of habits and hobbies and lifestyles, and that some work out and some play chess and some write poetry and some listen to podcasts, in fact.

As far as I can tell, these are the kinds of people that podcasters and comedians think are never listening: homeless people, sex workers, people who experience psychosis or major mental illness, Native folks/ American Indians, people with developmental disabilities. I just wanted to give that list to show that people who aren't me are also getting a lot of shit and I noticed.

**oh...Now that I am done with My Little Rant...
That was an amazing Post, 12obin.

Maybe, a few people that are Not you should Read It, out loud.
Homelessness is so fucking Traumatic.

I'm so sorry, 12obin.

Wow, that's super dickbaggy. I am not cool with that. I really hate this mentality that homeless people deserve to be homeless & should take absolutely any assistance that might come their way. Even if it's not actually helpful. Food that had to be refrigerated, extra bulk that you can't carry around easily, this is not good stuff.

After six months, I get, the fuck, used to it.

The days are getting longer on their Own!
They do not need Your Help, 'They'!

From the Fall Back Position, I am likely to be an hour early for any social event.
From the Spring Forward Position, I am likely to be an hour Late for any social event.

Just change the clocks and fly by instruments like Normal People?
That would have been a good idea Six Months Ago!

Now; All my clocks will be Right.
I'm not used to that!

UniqueScrenname hasn't been away for years, though; her last post was in December.

AHH!
It's not a Bee.
It's a Wasp!

Bees are all fuzzy and cuddly and sweet and they have sisters waiting.
Wasp are a different matter, all together.

It is Spring to the Bear and the Wasp.
She is ready to continue the Traditions of her Ruthless Family.

Spoiler:
I caught her in a Clear Container.
What is the Right thing to do with her?

1. Take her to the Beach, for an outing.
If she fliess out to sea...

That would make her a very strong flyer, indeed.

Thank you.
That is a Good Idea!

Do you know about Wasp?
They are Bastards.

Spoiler:
In the Spring the pregnant females are looking for a nest site.
In the Fall they turn Nasty. They will attack and kill their own.

They will attack and hurt You, too.
Some wasp stings Hurt, a lot.

Do not want wisdom teeth or do not want surgery? That statement could go either way. In fact, out of context, the words strongly imply you do not want the teeth.

I'm having my wisdom teeth out in three days. If you asked me the same question, Whizbang, I would answer "yes, both." At least I get to see my sister again when she comes up to make my recovery less miserable.

But you do have context. And do not want surgery, the wisdom tooth was really one of those "needs to get removed because it's bound to give trouble today and also it's decaying but no real pain *now*", and surgery sucks. >_>

Yay! Recovery is lots better with people around.

I think everything went well. Tooth was out and everything was fixed up in a few minutes, the most annoying thing right now is just the constant dull pain slowly draining my spoons, argh.

Edit: Also fuck this liquid food nonsense. x_x

That seems rather counter-intuitive, unless you're on the receiving end.

Well, 75% of methods are easier with hard food. Only outlier is male - front.
