      The poor quality video is available online but you should totally watch this in theatre. The 3D was beautiful; when Belle was on the mountain, i was tempted to run into the screen.
      And it was worth buying 2 tickets. I had the whole area to myself.

      Meh, I always worry about watching pirated shows. I either get viruses, phishing scams, or a warning and shut off of my internet for a couple days
      Glad you loved it though!

      Rave: My kids are so weird. We have 4 new-ish kittens (don't know if I wrote about them- they're 3 months old or so by now). Their names are "Baby Fluffy", "Baby not so Fluffy", "Two Face" and......... "Frank"
      They've been very sickly. It's common for our kittens to die off with respiratory infections by this new lot has that plus diarrhea. I've been showering with them to keep them clean, but ugh... those fluffy ones are a nightmare. I think I might shave them lol. They've been getting much better.

      We lost another puppy last night (the first didn't make it). I think momma squished him. We might lose one more because of the way they nurse. Because of the way she lays, in order to access the teats, one pup ends up between her back legs and one under her front 2 and face. If she switches position, they get trapped.
      Otherwise, she's being an excellent mom. She's even stopped panting so much (in part because I lowered the heat in my room).

      Rant: I'm very weird. When I'm cold in my sleep, I get into a tight fetal position. It traps all my body heat and I sweat like crazy. Night before last, I kept waking up thinking there was a spider on me but it was sweat rolling down my body. Then I try to stretch out, but the cold air freezes me, so back into the fetal position I go
      I tried sleeping in clothes last night but that wasn't happening. I can't even stand underwear when I sleep. so I added 2 more blankets to my bed. I didn't have the sweat/freeze episode until very early in the morning right before I woke. I guess they helped.

      Rave: My DIN started work (training) today. It's a 15 minute drive down the road I can definitely live with that commute until she gets a car.

      Rave: Season 4 of Orphan Black is finally on Prime. I've been binge watching it. Can't believe there's only 10 episodes though.

      Rant: I have the (forgive the butchering of this spelling) Roroni Kinchin theme song stuck in my head. It's been 10 years or more since I even watched it It's the only animae (gr sp!) I've ever liked.

      Yeah temperature changes are annoying. I have to keep a space heater in my room since my bedroom is the coldest room in the house. In the winter months the heater helps keep my room from getting down to 50f in the night, since if that happens I'll never be driven enough to get out from under the warm covers in the morning.

      I feel like I'm having constant episodes of waking up to find that i'm cutting off the circulation in one arm and I've got a limp arm. It used to only happen once in a fortnight but now I swear it's occurring nightly.

      Haven't had any trouble with curling up in the fetal position though. that is weird.

      Rave: Got my password restored at my college, so I can get on the Wifi and access my homework again.

      Cry: Nobody's continued my google picture war on the senseless banter thread.

      heh, I had a sleep study done about 10 years ago or more. They laughed at me the next day, saying they've never seen anyone curled up like a cat before. When the temp is fine, sleeping like that is okay (well, the tight fetal is never really okay lol). But, gosh, it is annoying when I trap my heat.
      I hate sleeping with another person for that reason too. It's as if, once I fall asleep I start running a fever. It's always been that way. Sleeping with another person or under heavy blankets makes it a million times worse. I can't help but worry about menopause and night sweats. Surely it can't be worse than what I've had all my life.... or can it

      One thing I've been doing lately is clasping my hands (like those pictures of pious people where only their fingers clasp). I thought we were supposed to go limp and relaxed when we sleep? Clasping fingers shouldn't stay that way- they should relax then separate. Not mine. I wake up with my fingers so cramped it hurts to separate them.

      Rant: The dog and her pups are killing me. I've been averaging about 4-5 hours of sleep a night.

      Rant: My meds aren't *quite* doing it for this period. Yesterday, I felt like someone kneed me in the crotch a few dozen times (haven't had that in YEARS) and today my back is hurting.

      Rave: We've not lost any more pups and they are too stinking cute.

      But sheesh momma is weird this time around. She goes through almost 2 gallons of water a day, 1 large bowl of dry dog food mixed with 1 large can of wet dog food twice a day, and an extra bowl of dry food... and she still goes after the cat food. She still goes through periods of heavy panting. Last night she went crazy and dug at a sliver of carpet I haven't pulled up yet. I guess laying down almost 24/7 feeding 8 hot babies would make anyone overheated and restless.

      Rant-ish: We have a glass club meeting tonight. We usually skip them but dues are due and hubby feels guilty about missing so many of them. It would be fine if the Museum was more high-end stuff. They collect and showcase EVERYTHING from everywhere in the US. And I mean everything Remember those jelly jars with cartoon characters on them? They have those. Remember Avon perfume bottles? They have those too. And they'll spend at LEAST 30 minutes tonight passing around that stuff. Hubby made me a glass snob. 1800-early/mid 1900 stuff only, please. Amberina, Fenton, Wave Crest, Peach Blow, Cameo. Those are the things I like and would like to learn more about.

      Hope everyone is well.

      My lab partner and I relied on our other lab partner to forward us the electronic data needed to complete the lab report, but despite trying to contact him, he never forwarded the data. He didn't even bother showing up to class when the report was due today. As a result, we will fail the lab because we needed the data to complete half the lab report. This all sort of reminds me of a little story. I feel somewhat like Susie did, although I'm nicer about it.

      I suppose it's noteworthy to mention that, whilst sitting in the living room, my father was struck in the arm by fucking lightning last week. That must be worth raving about?

      Oh, well at least it wasn't a tumor or anything lol. Only reason I know all that is because I've got a small benign tumor pressing on my pituitary and it's very close to the optic nerve, so I have to stay aware of any new vision problems because it could be a sign that it's getting larger and pressing on those nerves.

      Thanks for the comic, Dolphin. I do love Calvin and Hobs. Sorry about your crappy partner though.

      WOW, Moose!!! Hope he's completely okay. Did he go to the Doctor?

      Rave: I actually slept fairly well last night. I got up at 3AM to let the dog out and that was it. Managed to get 7 hours all in all.
      Rant: I'm fairly exhausted today though. I broke down and took a caffeine pill. It will make me cramp more but I can't stay in bed all day.
      Rave: My back only hurts when I stand Hopefully, I'll only have a couple more days of this nonsense. My period is never as heavy as it has been this time around. I don't know if that has caused the back pain or if my meds just completely failed. I guess I'll find out next month.

      Rant: Because of the flow change and other factors, tampons made me very ill last night. I felt like barfing and had to lay down at 8PM instead of 9:30.
      Rant: Those other factors are ??? frugality. Is that a word? I've been being a cheapskate. I usually use Softcups but Walmart stopped selling them. CVS sells them for more than twice as much and I just haven't been able to make myself get them. I went on Amazon Prime last night and they were selling for $26.- $56. Turns out, the company that makes them was bought out by another company and they're doing away with my brand. Walmart will not be selling the replacement brand because "Walmart isn't friendly toward small business". I'm going to have to suck it up and buy from CVS

      Rave: I was talking to my daughter over FaceTime yesterday and the router dropped us. I complained to her about it over FB. She thought we had a crappy internet company. I told her I was just to cheap to buy a router. She bought us one. It should get here tomorrow. I told her I feel bad now and she said not to, that it's a gift, but she expects to hear from me and Sis more often

      The pups get cuter and cuter every day. They make little growl sounds and barks from time to time. When they're fussing, I'll sometimes pick them up and give them back to momma (they fuss when they roll too far away from her). Sometimes, I'll hold them for a few moments first. They usually stop crying the moment I pick them up and start talking to them. They can't hear me yet, but they already know my scent. It makes me giddy because they feel comforted by me.
      They're also quieter at night now which I'm REALLY loving

      Yes just a little sore still, getting hit by lightning, like being shot, causes an entrance and exit wound. We rushed him out to the ER because he does have heart issues but everything seems a ok in that department so far. Lighting actually only kills 1 in 10 people it strikes, but 8 out of the 9 survivors usually have lifelong complications, he also seems to have none of these so far.

      Hope things are going good for you all.This is nothing compared to what some of you are going through but I got a paper cut and noticed it at the wrong time. It was embarassing cause I almost got blood all over the place. By mistake I got blood on someone. I hope I didn't scare them too much... D:

      Owwwch I hate papercuts. Your story reminds me of something that happened to me last term; I was getting an assignment together for class an X-acto rolled of my desk and went into my foot. What followed was probably the funniest conversation I ever had with a professor;

      Professor: "Why were you 15 minutes late to class?"

      Me: "Oh, no real reason. Just busy cleaning up a trail of my own blood."

      Of course I went on to explain the specifics of what happened, but it was still funny nonetheless.

      O.o Woah, that must have felt horrible. Like being stabbed? I have one but I always put top on after use. Lol It does sound like a funny convo to have with your proffesor though. Did he ask for you to show him the proof?

      Aw, it sucks you have to wait. Hope you get on it soon.

      The professor was a woman. And no, she did not ask to see proof. (I think the way I walked into class was proof enough, though. )

      Yeah, paper cuts are horribly annoying like how hangnails are annoying. Seriously, how can something so small hurt so much

      Rant: Have to play taxi today- doctors office then food pantry. Fortunately, my daughter could tell I was annoyed, so I just dropped them off at the Dr and then they're going to walk to the food pantry. When they're done, I'll pick them up. I hate waiting in the car but it's too close to really go home unless they'll be awhile.

      Rave: DV is back up.

      Rant: My dog is killing me. She wakes me up every 2-3 hours to go outside. When I'm awake, she's farting up my room something terrible. Well, she's probably always farting, but I'm oblivious in my sleep But dear God how she reeks. She's eating and drinking so much I'm amazed she hasn't exploded yet.
      Rave: The pups are all healthy and growing (except for one runt who is significantly smaller than the rest). They're often growling and making tiny barking noises. Their eyes aren't open yet but their ears might be.
      We already have a home for one of the girls when they're old enough.

      Rant: I am so sleepy!!!!!
      Rave: I had McD's breakfast again today so my tummy is happy.

      Curiosity: I feel like I'm starving every morning. I eat and snack until around 4:30 and then my appetite completely vanishes. I make myself eat something before bed so I can take my meds, but it's usually just a small snack (just enough for Ibuprofen).
      I think that's so weird. I lay down at 9:30 PM and I'm asleep anywhere from 11:30 to 2AM () And then I'm back up anywhere from 7-10. So, I can see how I would be hungry when I wake up lol, but where does my appetite go after that?

      Speaking of blood, I haven't had my period for a few months now. PCOS is back I guess. And I am happy when my reproductive system decides to take a break. I can deal with periods; I just hate being fertile. It makes me feel like I'm an incubator or something. I have fantasies about getting a rare disease that makes me permanently infertile but without any other side effects. Or getting into an accident which destroys my tubes but everything else works fine. Too bad PCOS makes me dizzy and nauseous. Maybe i'll start taking the pill again.

      My daughter is weird about pregnancy- not so much her fertility but getting pregnant terrifies her. She has a term for the phobia but I don't remember it. When I tell her how amazing pregnancy is, she just wants to run out of the room lol If I could safely be pregnant forever, I would be. Not very late or early term, but far enough along to feel the movement and to make out a tiny foot beneath my skin. It's the most amazing sensation ever.

      My rant is 2 zits. I normally get them right before my period. These little devils pop up whenever. But they don't break the skin. I'm constantly picking at them and squeezing them but they refuse to erupt or go away. So, I took a heated needle to them. And one of them IS STILL HERE What the friggin heck lol. I'm going to take my x-acto after it before much longer. Yeah. It's such a little thing. I don't know why they annoy me so much but they do. It's silly but I just can't ignore them.

      Other than that, life is quiet and nice... but cold. I finally had to turn off my AC, doggie be damned. Sorry momma but when it's 40 out, the heater comes on

      Ugh. My nice, quiet, peaceful life is about to get a bit crazy for the next month. Sis and her wife were both hired at a telemarketing type place (customer service though, not sales). It's 2 towns over...about a 40 minute drive one way.
      Paula (wife) gave me most of her only paycheck from Lowes ($180.) so I can take them and bring them back. Combined, they'll be making $24. an hour which is the major hand up they need. She also made a deal with me that they'll get a car with their first paycheck (it's held for a month) and they'll be in their own place in 6 months.
      I'll be spending (what) almost 4,5 hours on the road though, all in all And that's if their hours don't get me stuck in traffic forever
      They BETTER make this work.

      Rant: Paula's not going to be able to have plastic surgery to repair nerve damage (from her January surgery) any time soon.

      Rant-ish: I'm going to have to constantly tweak my meds. 300mg Gabapentin and 60 Cymbalta gets rid of most of my pain, but my anxiety worsens. 400mg Gab and 60 Cym gets rid of the anxiety but the pain starts coming back SO- whenever my back starts hurting or a week before my period, I'm going to have to use 300 before bringing it back up. I can deal with the anxiety in the short term. I wonder how taxiing is going to affect my anxiety though. GAH! What a major PITA!

      Rave: Most of the puppies have their eyes mostly opened. Some just have them open slits, some have them wide open and a couple still have them closed completely.
      Rave-ish: hubby and I might break down and go to Morgantown this weekend. I HATE Morgantown (city). BUT, he gets Indian food out of the trip and I get bulk coils for my e-cig. If they don't sell in bulk then we'll just go to Clarksburg (a much smaller city closer by). I have to get on the phone and call the 2 vape shops to see if they can work with us. Hubby will drop a couple hundred on the coils then sell them to me as I need them (as part of my allowance- it sounds weird, but yeah. That's us )
      I only have 4 coils left so we have to make the trip sooner rather than later. We could always go next weekend if push comes to shove but I really hate gambling with my coils like that. Sometimes I get duds and then I'll be short. A pack of 5 usually lasts me 2 weeks.
      PLUS, if hubby's feeling sweet, I might even get some extra juice out of the trip.

      The local vape shop keeps running out of stock on the juices I like. And this week I even used the very last of their nicotine and barely got 12 mg out of what they did have. I'm starting to lose faith in them. I'm all for supporting local, small businesses but enough is enough already.

      Nefets Hope your stresses leave you in peace soon.

      My and hubby's trip to the mall was a very fast one. First, I made the mistake of talking his ear off on the way there (an easy 40 minute drive), then there was traffic and road work which added to his stress (even though I was driving lol). We get to the mall and there is a sea of people, and kids and screaming babies.
      We get my coils and the math hurts his brain (which actually has me a little concerned lately. His mom had Alzimers (bla sp) and hubby is a genuine genius who used to thrive with math)... which made him even crankier. I called him out on it and he did better for a while.
      Then we went to a store to get him some T-shirts. Until we saw the lines at the registers. He just dropped off the shirts at a rack and we made a b-line for the exit.
      He said he should've known better. It's the first of the month (people get welfare and other checks at this time) as well as a Saturday. He apologized several times and I reassured him that all was well. He even took 1/2 a valium before we left, so all things considered, he did very well.

      Rave: I have 20 more boxes of coils so I'm set for a while.
      Rant: I don't care to leave my room. I'm perfectly content playing video games and watching shows. Hubby used to be a mover and shaker in his prime but the older he gets, the less he likes being around people. He feels like he SHOULD be doing stuff and because he just vegetates at home when not working, he feels depressed and worthless. I wanted to do stuff with him today for his sake. And even though I tell him all of this and he knows all of this, he still feels like he let ME down and gets more depressed And for being a genius, there's just no reasoning with him about this stuff.

      Rave: I, on the other hand, did exceptionally well today. I even took a lower Gabapentin. I was talking so much during the drive there, that I told him unprompted (a sort of inside joke with us): "No, I haven't taken any caffeine today, why do you ask." He sighed and grumbled and said "I was starting to think you took a Didrex!"
      I weaved in and out with traffic with no problems then "almost" got into 2 accidents (1 of them would've been my fault but I just didn't see them during a turn) and my anxiety still never reared its head

      Rant: I'm very sleepy though. I slept rough last night (too hot, too cold, sweating too much, freezing too much ).

      Rave: I tried the new Little Caesars pizza (smokehouse BBQ). It was WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY too BBQ-y but still interesting. Having picked that and a 64 oz Coke up, I have nothing else scheduled for the day except zombie hunting

      I hope life is being kind to all you DVers lurking about.

      Rant: One of the kittens, Frank, hadn't been doing so well. I picked him up last night to take him into the shower with me. But he had 4 long worms crawling out of his butt. I gently pulled a couple out, threw them away and then just cleaned him with a baby wipe. I knew he wouldn't last more than a couple of days. Sure enough, he was dead this morning
      But now I know I need to treat the rest of the animals for tapeworms.

      Rant: My throat is very sore this morning

      Rant-ish: I'm about to drive the girls to their new work place to fill out paperwork. The start training on Wednesday. While I'm in the town waiting on them today, I'm going to go to Gamestop and see if they have any cheap preplayed games

      RANT: My legs are back to aching full time now. And my knee hurt so much last night that I couldn't kneel on it to reach something above my bed. Gah!

      Have a good day, DV

      Its called tokophobia or something. Yeah i have that too. I feel scared around pregnant women because their bellies creep me out, like they're about to burst open like alien. My sister is pregnant and i'm avoiding her at all cost! And what you just described is absolutely terrifying. Lol. Pregnancy is like someone invading your private space and establishing claim over your body which was fully your until now. When you're in a crowd and want to get away, you can always go home. But when you're pregnant and want to be alone, you cant escape from your own body. But i guess what's worse than being pregnant is actually having to raise the kid.lol.

      Thanks Snoop. Unfortunately, in the country, animal deaths have become all too common and familiar. All of the neighboring strays and drop off end up adopting us. I'll feed them, shelter them, and love them but I can't afford a vet.
      The cats have Feline Rhinotracheitis Virus Infection (Feline Herpesvirus 1 (FHV-1) Infection - Head Cold in Cats | petMD) because there's so damn many of them. They pass it back and forth and at least half of all kittens die from it. On top of that, they now have those worms. With an already compromised immune system, it was just a disaster waiting to happen. But worms I can treat. Even that is playing Russian Roulette though. The meds aren't recommended for cats under 2 1/2 pounds. The kittens don't even weigh a pound. Plus, you're not supposed to give it to sick cats I'm giving them the smallest amount possible and crossing my fingers.

      Anju, yeah, that sounds right. I don't understand it though. Every time my daughter talks about "aliens" popping out (I guess that's a common thing lol), I exaggerate my body language and emotion in a "nah damn!/you're so silly" sort of way.
      But I was pregnant 4 times and had 4 healthy deliveries (my first one, I was only on the table less than 3 hours before he showed up). I just can't wrap my head around the phobia because it's such a magical/amazing/remarkable experience. For me.
      These posts reminded me of fetal hiccups too. I can't believe I had forgotten them. I actually had to google it to make sure it wasn't a false memory Everything about being pregnant was just perfect... EXCEPT for the heartburn. I also didn't have much "morning sickness" either, so I was one of the fortunate ones.
      To each their own

      Rave-ish: The drive to their work isn't nearly as far as I thought. It's only 27 miles Unfortunately, there's a ton of construction on the way there that will slow things down if caught at the wrong hours.

      Rant-ish: My daughter might not be able to start right away because they need a physical copy of her GED. Paula got on line and found it so she went to the library and printed off everything. It was "Copy" yadda yadda all over it though so we don't know if they'll accept it. We can buy it for $15. but we don't really have the funds at the moment. If she can't start now, though, they said she can go through the process again once it comes it. Destinee might be stuck there until 4, doing nothing, if they don't accept the copies.
