Annoyed Thoughts

I have two favorite vacuum insulated mugs for coffee. One is extra large, 24 ounces, that I take into the office. The other is 14 ounces, that I use when I WFH.

The big mug gets 5 pumps of sugar free syrup, the small gets 2. Yeah, you’d think 2 and 4, or 3 and 5 would make more sense, but these have been tested and palate approved, I don’t make the rules.

Today I put 5 pumps into the small mug, and it’s borderline undrinkable. Insert some kind of joke about needing coffee before I make my coffee.


Just make a new one. Isn’t coffee like 8 cents a cup?


It’s a standalone imaging center, but one that is generally respected. I think all my mammograms have been done by them. They have a mobile unit that comes to the office and they would call to remind me it was time.

But yes, when I asked for a 3D mammogram, this is where my PCP referred me.

I have found a couple other options in town where I will go next time, but probably have to stick with this one for my follow up.

Back in the day they used to give out roses when you got your mammogram. Gee thanks, steal my dignity and then make up for it with a flower. I guess that sort of thing is nice for some women but it just makes me :roll_eyes:

I got a whole bunch of nothing after all my hernia checks. Not even a deep, passionate handshake… :frowning:

Sure, here’s a coffee-related joke for you:

Why did the coffee lover need coffee before making their coffee?

Because they needed a latte energy to espresso themselves properly in the morning!

I wonder if perhaps they’ve been bought by someone. Eh, too much speculating for a Friday.

Suffice it to say I share your frustration with healthcare in this country. I’m trying to make things a bit better, but it’s a long row to hoe.

16 cents, and each cup is only about 6 ounces, so mine is really more like 35 cents with the room for cream, plus another 35 cents of heavy cream, plus another 50 cents or so of syrup. And damnit I’m not throwing out $1.20 worth of coffee!

I should’ve brought one more pair of underwear.

Same. When I was on the pill it was every 28 days like clockwork, of course. And now I have an IUD so it’s … never.

But the times in my life when I’ve had neither it was all over the place… usually somewhere in the 32-38 day range but occasionally I’d get a surprise at day 17 or so. My mother kept meticulous track so I did too at first and then gave up… what’s the point?

Who needs a bidet when you’ve got auto flush?

I was hand sewing tonight, stitching some thick fabric onto the back of the quilt. The only needles I had sharp and thin enough to sew through the fabric were self-threading needles. If you’re not familiar with them, they look like this:

So both ends are very sharp as a result. I don’t like thimbles, never use them, so tonight there were a few times I was trying to push the needle through the fabric with my finger, using the quilt in between the finger and the needle, but the sharp threaded end shoved through the fabric and into my finger, twice. And once it was really lodged in there, I had to yank it out…and it really hurt.

Will I learn my lesson and start using a thimble? Of course not…


Thimbles are for suckers.
