Bingo. (See my reply to Matt, literally 30 seconds before seeing this.)

Must be the SoCal translation. GMan is a homeboy to down here, so it
makes sense to me.

Heh. I've actually migrated from "I couldn't possibly while I'm sick ..." to
"Well, at least I wouldn't be bored out of my mind ..." ... but my husband
isn't a big fan of fluid exchange while either of us is sick, so that's out.
Solo pursuits are perfectly legit, though ...

I don't have a sinus infection (yet?), but my teeth feel loose and "weird" as
they always do when my sinuses are unhappy.

You got the joint right. Lucky 13 at Hyde Park. Usually too crowded with
Posers to get a seat, though. I usually ask to join strangers, and most of
the time they say "sure" and I've gotten a couple slices of pizza that way,
too. Why not?

Maybe it's in reference to the beginning of the second rotation, and the

No, no, no. That's "ass over tea-kettle".

Hah, I read that "Now I need a map" and instantly thought of the phrase, "He
can't find his own ass with a map and a flashlight ..." or something to that
effect.

Not sure where the teakettle fits in, though.

I'm glad you're too polite to think that you answered your own question!

Sorry your sick.... but glad to hear somebody else is lingering on too.

I'm just starting the 4th week with this thing and bagged work early today
because I just wasn't putting out enough to charge anybody for it.

Geeze, you'd think we'd at least have enough sense to come down with this stuff
in late December or January....

I didn't realize RA would involve those kinds of treatments. Scary!

I don't know if RA acts somewhat like injury-induced arthritis. My knees hurt
worst when the weather is changing, which means that fall and spring are the
worst seasons for me. It's one of the reasons I love living in Colorado --
the transitional seasons are nice and short.

Tits up = on its back/**** sorta thing - HTH!


Shaun aRe - And yeah, if you call something 'tits' here, its cursory,
derogatory - 'What a load of tits!' OTOH, 'It's the tits man!' is good,

Methotrexate is one of the drugs I take, technically a chemo-therapy for
several different types of cancer patients, though at higher doses. I
only take it once a week and it makes me a bit tired for a day or so.
Prednisone is another, which is a steroid, though not the kind that
makes one bulk up.
RA really sucks, but not as bad as Lupus or MS, which are its close
cousins. What kind of pisses me off (and also make me laugh) is this is
typically an out of shape woman's disease.
Sorry for the *****, I rode Thurs and Fri then felt crappy for a few
days in a row. Feeling much better today, and the weather is nice, and I
have another Dr. appt :(
