Chit Chat

This thread is the place to list any miscellaneous that doesn't belong in other threads (because it has the potential to make them go "off topic").  Kind of a "FC graffiti board" so to speak, have fun!!  ;D

@ falcon9 AND jordandog:

     I'm currently having some "problems".  Both of my jobs each have a person that is out having some form of intestinal surgery and so their hours all got dumped on the rest of us.  It's been 14-16 hour work-days, and will continue for a couple of weeks at the least.  It doesn't give me much time to 'figure out what is wrong' with my computer but I will be trying when I can.

     My cat chewed the computer cord and it's slowing things down (as there is little teeth punctures all down the cord, the computer works but not very well).  Will be getting a new cord hopefully I will have time this week.

     My computer is also doing something else that seems "odd".  Perhaps it's a "coincidence"...   probably at my ex"spence"...  
if I can't get it to work right, at least I have the "coincidence" and ex"spence"  and will go that route then.

     I just wanted to let you both know that I am working on the "issue", not ignoring ya...extra time is scarce right now.   :)

With all that happening at once, I'm surprised there was time to even let us know about it.  No worries, no deadlines here.  Remember to rest, relax, recuperate too during all the frenzy.

One can lead a horse to water however, if one holds the horse's head under, that horse will drown.

The only graffiti in my area is the "non-artistic" kind mostly...all gang-signs, profanity, "nick loves daisy" or "I was here".
Found some neat ones on-line though...

@falcon9,
 
     I guess today and hopefully tomorrow are the "rest, relax, and recuperate" days since I can barely walk.  Hopefully neither job tries to call me in.  I don't know what I did, think it has something to do with the new work shoes I had bought.  Perhaps they were too "lightweight"/flimsy.  Both jobs are rather continuously fast-paced and my feet feel like they are bruised at times and without skin many others.  Not good. :(
    I did manage to replace the computer cords today (but not before something smelled like it was burning).  Hopefully no damage to actual computer.  Want a cat?  So far he's costed me more in "chewed damages" than it costed to adopt both him and Sammy AND all their first year vet bills. >:( Geez!

@falcon9,

Cats seem to like cords alright.  About the only things possible to prevent chewings are hide the cords or, wrap them in tin-foil, (as long as there aren't any already-exposed inner wiring holes in the outer cord sheathes).

We cannot accept any more cats since those we currently have are apparently either furry daemons or, advance-scouts for a feline race of invaders.

Now that's a humorous turn of phrase.  Well-played, ma'am.

I worked at a large dept. store for years, so know what you are going through and yes go to a spe. shoe dept. and get fitted, there was times i would be on my feet for hours at a time. would also change shoes off and on during the day. depending on what i had to do. Heels are the worst thing for your feet. Although i did not enjoy a couple of car wrecks in 3 months ( not my fault, rearended and the side  both ran red lights) The dr. took heels away from me, It helped my back and feet so much. The shoes with springs in the heels are super. If you can wear them at work go for it.

    Thanks for the tips potluck6 & vickysue!!  I'll definitely be checking into the ideas that you mentioned because I can't seem to find a great work shoe to save my neck.  (If we were allowed to wear Crocs, then I'd be having no problems.  I wore those for my last "busy" job and loved them!)  My second job has reluctantly said I could wear Crocs...so yay!!  I do have a pair of "work Crocs" for my primary job, they just aren't as comfy as the originals. :(
    I had a pair of "rocker" shoes that I had been wearing to both jobs and then got really bad leg cramps and back spasms.  Those shoes tone your legs while walking and I recently found out one isn't supposed to wear them more than a couple of hours a day. ???
    I then bought a pair of very lightweight shoes that almost resemble "ballet slippers", they were so comfy to wear for a few days (and still are), I had put cushioned inserts in the bottoms because there isn't much padding to them and no arch support but being on a cement floor for both jobs, rushing all over at a fast pace for sixteen hours...feet got so sore they feel bruised.   ::)  I have to go buy another pair for sure before tomorrow so I will probably go with a pair with the "springs in the heels" right away.  I did have a co-worker that wore a pair of those, I asked her if they were comfy and she didn't really say so I hadn't considered them until now.  Thanks so much for the help!! :thumbsup:

@SherylsShado-
A possible cord solution for you-
go to usplastic.com; find category "Sheet" (in columns on/across the top), mouse over that and in drop-down box click "Spiral Wrap" then "Natural & Black Spiral Wrap". (Or you could pick the fluorescent, but it's more $$)

We had to get a  :bootyshake: load of this and wrap a  :bootyshake: load of cords because of chewy monsters-
easy to put on, works excellent, pretty cheap.
                    
How come it won't play?
