I have to write the full account to my laywer now, and then they will start arguing about it.

4:20 am
mrpresident

I had a garbage truck back into me down a hill once... I was stopped and couldn't go anywhere... it was my fault allegedly... :(
4:20 am
sprite

Same here, I thought, sylvia. But now they say that you have to let the other guys go first if you are changing lanes (duh). Traffic was standing still, it was a stopup (or what is it called, a traffic jam) and I HAD to change lanes, mine ended.
4:21 am

That doesn't sound too good either, mrP :(

4:28 am
FranMag

sprite, you're upset because you know you're right, but because of some dumb rules you may not win!!
4:30 am
sprite

Thanks Andree, I will take that along in the account.
And the stupid thing is, the truck driver did leave a big gap in the file before him, so I assumed he WAS letting me in. And he did. Only when I was almost there, he started bumping into me. Twice. I am positive he was not paying attention to the jam, but doing something else.
4:30 am
Atalante

because these things *are* upsetting! bad memories and official phone calls are offputting ... and yes, you know you're right so why should you have to go through all this!
4:30 am

True Fran, that's what I am feeling. And what is making me shake. Argh.

4:32 am

your lane ended
traffic was bumper to bumper

in my experience with idiot drivers... they freak out when you ask for past details about their driving record...
4:33 am

Also remembered that the truck had the damage somewhere in the middle of his bumper. Guess that should prove that I was already on his lane when he bumped into me, not just starting changing lanes. Right?
5:17 am

O dear, this is great. Just checked the sketch the truckdriver made on the damage form. He draws my car already completely on HIS lane, not halfway changing lanes. This is GOOD!
5:32 am
FMitch

that is great news sprite, hows he gonna argue that one!
5:33 am

Right! My husband just asked me to look extra good at the drawing and it paid off. It is very clear. I think this will help a lot!

Eva

I know it's only 3 letters but my favorite word in this grid is FEH!!!
5:38 am
sprite

Hope this will make clear how it really happened and that the truckdriver was to blame entirely.
The traffic was going very slow, so the damage was manageable, lynxxx. Still 900 euros on our car though, which I would very much like to get back! And I was stiff and painful all over, but no injuries. My guardian angel was doing overtime on that one!
5:39 am

It's definitely the time dif Eva, give's me a head start :)

thats all sounds good then Sprite - I am sure you will recover your costs - AND not get any blame!

The doer of good deeds used some bad stuff to impress the lady superwoman, scared away a nice bird and was attacked by all the siblings of that bird. He was then removed from the list of doers of good deeds.

I don't like Max & Ruby because Max comes along and insists on doing something that Ruby doesn't want to. By the end of the show, it turns out that what Max wanted was right all along. don't like that. AND the program is totally gender specific (girls and cooking for the girls and rockets/cowboys etc for the boys)

Well, then, when I am lying awake at night, and the pale moonlight streams through the latticed casement, strange fancies crowd upon my poor mad brain, and I sometimes think that if we could hit upon some word for you to use whenever I am about to relapse ? some word that teems with hidden meaning ? like "Basingstoke" ? it might recall me to my saner self. For, after all, I am only Mad Margaret! Daft Meg! Poor Meg! He! he! he!

its a bit of a long story .. the gist of it is this - I've been morbidly obese for almost 15 years and very little has worked. My dr wants me to consider surgery
1:20 pm
ladynoire1013

specifically, something called lap band surgery, not the gastric bypass
1:20 pm

1:21 pm

Mind you, she asked me to "consider", ie, think about it, investigate, get some counselling, etc
1:21 pm
TheFiz

what's that, lady? (and could they have a worse term for being severly overweight? do they have to call it "morbidly obese"? sounds so upsetting)
1:21 pm
abe79

lady, someone on babble has had that surgery, i can't remember who
1:21 pm
lmj643

lady, if you trust your doc, i'd listen to him/her
1:21 pm
Douglas

After an ****** length of time, the nurse said the doctor would see me now...
1:21 pm
ladynoire1013

its called morbid, because it will eventually kill you
1:22 pm
TheFiz

well sure, and i suppose it has shock value for the folks who think, "it's not that bad", but most people i know who are that heavy have a pretty clear idea that it causes health problems.
1:22 pm
ladynoire1013

However, I just found out I have low thyroid, and we're still trying to get my dosage worked out...
1:23 pm

lady, how do u feel about having it done.
1:23 pm
FMitch

How do you feel about that op lady?
1:23 pm
ladynoire1013

I also just started exercising regularly for the first time in about 20 years, so I think I want to wait a year, see how the exercise and medication work first
1:23 pm
TheFiz

lady get that worked out before you do anything. and it may help - at least so you can keep your energy up and your weight off.
1:24 pm
ladynoire1013

I'm really leery, as the surgery will require some lifechanging decisions and I"m not a big fan of surgery (I'm an RN, btw)
1:24 pm
Inge2

the thyroid medication will give you more energy to excercise, too, ladyN; so I would wait
1:25 pm
abe79

lady- if you don't feel comfortable getting surgery, don't do it. go with your instincts b/c you know your body better than anyone
1:25 pm
ladynoire1013

The other thing I have to consider is I have severe arthritis in all my weight bearing joints, which is getting worse
1:25 pm
beebee

lady- no offense, but can you wait a year? how is your health?
1:25 pm
ladynoire1013

My thoughts so far are: wait and see what the meds and exercise do, one more year at this point can't hurt too much more
1:26 pm
ladynoire1013

My insurance won't cover the surgery as its still experimental - so I have that to consider as well
1:26 pm
TheFiz

lady, everyone i know who's had some sort of weight loss surgery has suggested (either because they did it or because they didn't!) that people work hard on their diet and learning about how/why they eat beforehand, and work on getting into a healthier routine. it's tough to suddenly change your habits, and you don't feel so good after the surgery for a while.
1:26 pm
TheFiz

i've also heard tell that water exercise is an amazing thing - that way you don't hurt your joints further.
1:27 pm
ladynoire1013

I just don't want to do something permanent to my body thats going to make my enjoyment of life any less than it already is

if you do decide to have surgery- i heard really good things about the band verses gastric, less complications, not as invasive, quicker healing, etc. but, i wish you luck in whatever you choose to do.
1:27 pm
ladynoire1013

Yes, I'm in the US, FM
1:28 pm
ladynoire1013

I'd much rather lose the weight conventionally - what I need to change are my habits, nutrionally and activity wise
1:29 pm
oggy

walking is another good exercise if u can do it as well as swimming.
1:29 pm
ladynoire1013

The lap band has good results and you can "reverse" it later - my problem with that is, if I have the surgery, lose the weight, then reverse the surgery, whats to say I won't gain it all back again?
1:29 pm
FMitch

I've heard good and bad about the op but there can be so many other things that could be done first with the right mind set and back up and support
1:30 pm

best of luck on an exercise program lady. i lost 50 pounds a few years ago by making some lifestyle changes. good on you for wanting to be conventional
1:30 pm

lady what does your dr. say about waiting a year?
1:30 pm
ladynoire1013

Oggy, I love walking on the treadmill - its one of the few things I can do without a lot of pain (severe arthritis in knees)
1:31 pm
ladynoire1013

Fiz, she's a great dr - she wants me to be happy and healthy - she also agrees with waiting on the meds a few more months
1:31 pm

lady not being rude, but how old are u.

do you have someone you can exercise with, lady?
1:32 pm
ladynoire1013

oh yes, my husband and family are wonderful, and my friends have been very supportive
1:33 pm
TheFiz

lady however you ultimately go about losing the weight you need to lose, keeping it off is a matter of major lifestyle shifts. sounds like you're making some smart and healthy choices for yourself, and if your dr. supports you then it makes sense to me to give it a little while.
1:33 pm

Yup, hubby goes with me to the gym, he's my coach lol

1:36 pm

know that whatever you choose to do we'll be here with you! insurance isn't so good at recognizing the value of intervening before something is a deadly problem - they'd rather have you hospitalized when you "really need it" than pay for nutrition, exercise, etc.
1:36 pm

Hi Stidmama
1:57 pm
beebee

no- i didn't- i hear that you can get cheaper drugs(my grandparents friends were talking about it) in canada
1:58 pm
jillibus

I don't remember when it started but I guess about 30 years ago - the British system is older - and many European countries have had the same sort of thing for ages
1:58 pm
stidmama

sounds like an interesting conversation ... but I am going to sit it out and dive into the grid. Would like to finish early today if I can.
1:58 pm
Douglas

beebee, lots of American politicians have been saying "Gosh, if only we could be just like Canada with regards to health-care, everything would be so hunky dory!"
1:58 pm
jillibus

the matter of drugs is another thing altogether. We do pay for those but there is help available.
1:59 pm
beebee

but, i will be looking in to this and then i'll be harassing my elected officals about why we to can't have it
1:59 pm

doug- i think it would be a wonderful thing
2:00 pm
jillibus

douglas, I know you're going to talk about waiting lists and so on, but I'll take it over the no-insurance thing. I have had surgeries and didn't have to wait - no problemo

jilli- thanks for the health lesson- i appreciate it- i learn more than new words on babble

oops, missed the health care discussion - my partner works for a community health center and i have lots of thoughts - but you're right, jilli, it's something that can be discussed forever and i've got just a few minutes and 30 to find...
2:08 pm
beebee

i don't know exactly what ya'll(jilli and doug) are talking about, but i do know plenty of people with ins. who can't get the neccessary treatments due to a bunch of ins. bullsh**, and i know that i pay way to much a month for coverage and there are plenty of people who need medical attention, but can't afford it so they suffer. so whatever flaws jilli's system has, it seems way better than what we have in place

We were watching this storm headed for Texas and everyone sighed, thank heaven it isn't us again and then we are watching in horror as it is projected to move right over us. They have already moved or are in the process of moving the shuttle back into safety. Woe is me. If the electricity goes off (as it ALWAYS does), I will not only be hot, hot, hot but in major babble withdrawal.

Hi Lynxx -- didn't we converse 15 hours ago?

3:23 pm
rumplestiltskin

My morning glories! They are beautiful today after the rain.
3:24 pm
stidmama

they are gorgeous! Do you have to plant them every year?
3:24 pm
Douglas

While I was writing about how it looked like CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow, I saw the morning glories...
3:24 pm
rumplestiltskin

No, and the multiply like crazy. I could send you some seed if you want.
3:24 pm
ARB

Douglas, when I look at the words now, I don't see a lot of wierd words, but it seems that what is there is not easy to detect.
3:24 pm
lynxxx

hi ARB - I thought that it was more like 30 hours -!? no matter - glad to see you between all the trips !
3:25 pm
stidmama

thanks rumple, but I spend a good bit of time pulling the white bindweed from the lilacs and other ornamentals... Not sure I need another one that "naturalizes readily"! :-)
3:26 pm
stidmama

I have 77 to go... 77 to find, grab a word, type it out, 76 more to search for....
3:26 pm
stidmama

lynxxx -- is that some sort of magnolia?
3:26 pm
rumplestiltskin

We have about 3 acres fenced in 6 foot chainlink for my Deerhound and it climbs all over it.
3:27 pm
snppngtrtle

does anyone have the last he 6/21 and 5/12?
3:27 pm
ARB

Anyone need any help before my eyes close permanently and my fingers curl up?
3:27 pm
lynxxx

yes stid - leftover anyway
3:27 pm
stidmama

You have a deerhound? why am I not really surprised? Wish I could put up a fence just for our shepherd. He doesn't roam (thankfully) but he really can't just be let out.
3:28 pm
stidmama

oh ARB, I hope not "permanently"!
3:28 pm
hetty

Rump, I still see the captain, alas. Stid, I'm here and wanting to help.
3:28 pm
ARB

he 6/21 is the plural of the he 5/12 before it (large bird)
3:28 pm
stidmama

I am not far enough to ask for clues yet, ARB, but thanks.
3:28 pm
stidmama

hetty, just need to refresh for the pretty posies.
3:28 pm
ARB

he 5/12 after that is the plural of he 4/5.
3:29 pm
rumplestiltskin

the 5,12 after the bird plural is the plural of the 4,5 above it
3:29 pm
mo

thanks for all your clues but i still cannot get the th8 perhaps it is an American word?

3:29 pm
stidmama

YAY turtle!
3:30 pm
Douglas

Hooray for snppngtrtle!
3:30 pm
lynxxx

th8 - th + charged particle + past tense to eat (TY for earlier clue)
3:30 pm
stidmama

the eo 6/18 ends like a geologic period tertian, permian...
3:30 pm
ARB

th 8/45 = th + electrically charge atom + past tense of puting food in your mouth.
3:31 pm
Douglas

But I do have the eo6/18, lynxxx! After an ****** length of time, you might get an appointment with a Canadian doctor...
3:31 pm
hetty

mo, try again. Take th**5/12--archaic form of "yours"rhyming with "mine" Slip a circle between the third and fourth letters. Now add past tense of "eat" --"I a** a peanut last night. . ."
3:32 pm
hetty

You could get an apointment with me in a flash, Doug
3:33 pm
hetty

The Brits, of course begin eo6/18 with an "a"--they are aeo**out of date
3:33 pm
mo

ARB thank you i have it now. Hetty...thank you for your help too
3:33 pm
stidmama

3:37 pm

Stid, that is funny that you said you need brain food because my little sister takes fish oil and after she was taking it for a while she really started talking a lot more, so we call it brain food!
3:38 pm
Douglas

That's a very nice word, hetty, as in electronic theatre...a virtual reality viewer...
3:38 pm

3:40 pm
stidmama

hetty! great clue, I got it!
3:40 pm
hetty

I'm sure you are capable of such an a****ment, Chris
