Hi there! First and last I see. Coffee & krullers. Bye there! I’ll be back. WAKE up while I’m gone.
I second your first, Mrs. Goatherd has prepared scrambled eggs with ham and cheese mixed in and toast with sugar free blackberry jelly. I’ll share. I’m off to get some hay for the herd this morning. I’ll be back, too. Don’t let the eggs get cold, dig in.
The only problem I can see with that is if a piece of bacon gets wedged inside the straw, a person who sucked too hard, most likely a Democrat, could collapse his/her brain cavity in the process!
A good idea. It’s a shame there’s no real bacon in it, only bacon flavoring. If I want bacon flavoring, I’ll just drink some of my wife’s perfume.
What we need, Magnus, is a biscuits & gravy shake!
Now, there’s an idea whose time has come!
I just pulled up to McDonald’s for a coffee and left with a Shamrock Shake. They’re back!
Mickey D’s coffee? That’s pretty hardcore, Mr. Helm.
Don’t use your crotch for a cup holder, I don’t think they pay big money for that anymore.
Well, not since YouTube made it unprofitable…
Having gotten a shake it sounds like Matt’s more into preservation of that specific area!
hmmmmm…thanks for the offer, but I’ll have to pass on the BaconShake — I have to avoid dairy for a spell. Went back to the Dr. last night as this URI hasn’t gotten any better. Seems that it’s progressing into Walking Pneumonia now. Got two shots in the hips and whole new mess of drugs with interesting side effects. yay. The nurse that gave me the shots was cute…but married. :-/
Now it’s back to my Man Cave to try and rest even more than before. woohoo.
Someone sing Soft Kitty…
I’ve had that before and it’s no picnic (and I HATE the shots!). You had better start getting your sleep on, so you can get over it.
Thanks, Tink. I hope I can get some sleep on — those steroid shots kept me awake until 4am! I don’t mind shots — as a member of the Zipper Club, I got over needles real quick! My hips were sore from the meds, though.
However, I am feeling a bit better today. Just have to remember to keep drinking — the Bactrim requires 64oz. of water/juice daily!
Dare I ask what the Zipper Club is and what it has to do with shots?
See, you knew you were supposed to be drinking your orange juice!
The Zipper Club is for those of us who have had open heart surgery. Mine was back in ’89 for Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome. Naturally, just 2 years after my surgery, they started doing the femoral catheter ablation instead of open heart. yay. :-/
Thanks for reminding me — I have to go out and get some more OJ and Grape-Cranberry juice!
What always cleared my sinus/respiratory problems was a course of Prednisone. All better in about 5 days…till the next one came around. The problem with that is that if you take it too often and too long, you end up getting fat. 3 or 4 courses a year is about all you can take without those side effects, but it did work, and I never had a problem with it.
That’s what I’ll tell people, then. “I’m sorry I’m fat. I took too much Prednisone. If it can happen to me, it can happen to you.”
Hey, it can’t be all bad. The French love Jerry Lewis! But he was skinny when they started, and he’s off the stuff and skinny again.
Goozer, did they try a “Z pack” before it ever got to that point? That stuff will kill just about anything. F’n doctors.
Nope. I did mention it as one of treatments in the past for this, but the first dr. put me on Amoxicillin, and now I’ve got Sulfamethoxazole-tmp, Mucinex, Dulera and Albuterol inhalers (which since I’m not asthmatic nor really short of breath makes little sense) — plus the two shots in the office. I am feeling a little better, but my lungs are still ‘gurgly’ and the meds are making it hard to fall asleep. :-/
Thanks for the b’fast, LGH! Mucho apprecianado!
Thanks for coffee and repast, boys. It is going to be long day and I’ll need it.
So, after a bachelor’s degree, I’m generally (almost certainly, in fact) planning on earning a master’s. The way I look at it, I’m getting to study what I want and how I want now, in a rigorous program that will sharpen my strengths. However, while a liberal arts degree is far from useless, it can be tricky to market one’s self with just that degree (especially in this economy), so I need a STEM degree (science, technology, engineering, math) to offset that. Now, the way things are arranged money-wise, I will walk away debt-free, or very close to it. If I watch my budget, I can even squeeze a master’s into that. So, budget-wise, I’m looking at online computer science programs from accredited colleges (I plan on earning the degree while in a paid internship–or seeking one–after the bachelor’s). I’m generally looking to work in the games industry as a writer–the LA degree (particularly from the school I’m going to) and a CS degree seem just about the perfect combination for that, but if I don’t find a job in that industry, between the CS and LA degrees and my talents, I could apply for a fair number of positions, to my way of thinking.
My question is this, then: Do you think a CS degree a good investment and the line of thinking above a sound one?
I wish I could help you with that one David, but you’re asking a guy with a H.S. diploma and a year of college who had two relatively good careers and is 66 years old and retired. That scenario, is, sadly, next to impossible to accomplish these days. The economy and job market now do not allow for that sort of thing. It’s sad because there are so many bright young people out there who don’t/can’t find a good job anymore without total financial ruination in the process of obtaining credentials, and even then it can be a crapshoot.
Yeah, I could rail at the absurdity of making a degree a near de facto requirement of entering the workforce, but alas, it what it is. The only reason I’m able to get a degree now is that my family came an inheritance in the form of property and I get a chunk of the proceeds. I still have to take grants, loans, and scholarships for the time being, but I’ll be able to turn around and pay it all or most of it off when everything is sold. I thank my grandmother’s prudence that I have this opportunity.
Fortunately, the blinders continue to come off many folks’ eyes, even around the world. Unfortunately, still too many people like BarryO exist who grant President Obama near-perpetual passes. Eh, at least BarryO took a peek around his blinders re. the XL Keystone issue.
