    What a precious good cat.

    I hope things go well for you Warkitty. I don't know you personally very well but I know every time I see you show up you're cool and nice, so you deserve the good stuff.

    Well I'm in a bit of an annoying situation. I really want to try to get back in contact with my ex, but I also don't want to dig up the wounds I caused and hurt her again.

    That seems very apt (and it's strange that I haven't heard it before), I've seen lots of pop-psych articles that amount to a headline of "More Income Doesn't Bring Happiness" which cite a diminishing amount of happiness with extra income, but invariably that amount of income is more than most people have!

    I was reading a pop psyche article where a study found people regardless of factors tended to self-describe their happiness at 7/10. Those who reported lower or higher amounts reported a life event within 3 days, and further reporting showed their happiness returnes to 7/10 within the week.

    What remained the same was a desire to get to 10/10 and stay there, even though you adjust expectations to where you are. So most people are about as happy and about as discontent with their happiness regardless of success.

    A very apt metaphor.

    Non sequitor, does anybody know a good way to get rid of canker sores? I get them fairly often, and they hurt like hell. Currently I have one about a centimeter in diameter, and I can barely speak. It got so bad that at my D&D table last week, I was unable to keep them on task at all, and the entirety of the meeting devolved into a discussion of whether or not Hitler could have won WWII.

    I need to deal with this.

    The way I always think about it is that money doesn't make you happy, but the *lack* of it sure helps make you unhappy...

    For me the point is that choice makes you happy, and without money you can't make many choices (which has a lot to do with why my current job frustrates me, they seem to go out of their way to stop anybody being able to survive on their salary, let alone make choices).

    Not very productive though, so far I "fixed" one faucet that I had a service order for, but I actually already had fixed it on Friday when I noticed that someone ripped off the handles.

    Side rant: I ****ing hate that part of work culture.

    Working as a carpenter's assistant, I got sick enough that it took me multiple tries to move the covers off to get out of bed. However, I still went back to work after 1 day recovery because this was on a Thursday, and the story that goes around is that you wanted a 4 day weekend, since you didn't look that sick on Monday (that's what the 4 days of rest was for, you berk.)

    So this past week, my baby's been at his grandparents in Louisiana, so we decided to use that time to redo the walls in his bathroom. The wallpaper was peeling, and it didn't look TOO bad to remove it from the YouTube videos I saw.

    Unfortunately, the prior owners painted over the wallpaper. So several days of annoying work trying to fix that, and I now hate them for it. Then sanding, cleaning, and painting. And, we figured at the start, as long as we're doing this we may as well replace the toilet like we've wanted to since we got the house. And may as well go ahead and replace the really dated towel handles and toilet paper holder, outlet covers, lightswitch covers, and make it all look nice and new.

    Long story short, I still hate plumbing, I now hate drywall, wallpaper, painted over wallpaper, the previous owners, and plumbing. My goal in life is to make enough money that I can hire people to do that for me, and appreciate the hell out of them.

    I don't mean to alarm anyone{,} but I ran out of one of my neurological medications, and as a result, will probably start falling down again. I ordered more, but it's going to be a while, because they need to be re-prescribed.

    Thanks, but that probably wouldn't help with when both knees suddenly snap shut without warning, and stay closed for a few seconds.

    I'll probably be fine; it took over a week off my meds before that happened last time, and I'm probably only going to miss a few days here.

    What about a walker? Then you can put all your weight on it to stay upright.
