    Or during breakfast. Especially when you're drinking something that mixes well in coffee.

    I won't be joining May/June. I have too much to do.

    It makes me miss the rats at my parent's place. They were giant rats but they stayed under the house and ate all the bugs. The only thing I had against them was the tendency of elfhat neighbors to leave out rat poison. I lost my childhood cat that way

    It was a cockroach. It skittered under the kitchen skin. The cabinet and the counters are now covered in a thick dusting of diatomaceous earth with the emergency Giant Shoe on standby in case the bug deigns to show itself. There's also dead mice in a mouse trap down the hall near the trash chute. Suddenly the building's habit of lax maintenance and little-to-no cleaning of the common areas have come back to haunt everyone who stays... We, on the other hand, are moving to a place that actually has a contract with an exterminator. And has recycling.

    It's a good thing we're moving. There was a bug. It was a big bug.

    Um... yes... I'm not just lazy and easily distracted. I don't just stop in the middle of assembly or priming to work on something else. I'm prepping for later! This memorial day I'm busy packing minis so I can move them to another apartment. Not gonna get to paint anything

    Caffeine is one of the few OTC medicines approved by the FDA specifically for migraine pain. There's a reason your high price OTC migraine meds are just standard painkiller + 60mg caffeine. It's much maligned because the major symptom of caffeine withdrawal is migraines. I recommend staying away from the big brand coffee shops, their coffees blow straight past the 'medicinal' doses and into the 'hallucinogenic' doses. A tasty drip coffee might be a good idea. Low blood sodium is not uncommon but it's also not taken seriously. The symptoms of low sodium (headache, dizziness, drowsiness, brain fog, nausea) are annoyingly vague but also easy to treat because medicinal french fries are difficult to turn down. I use medicinal ramen because of a genetic issue (I own kidneys, they work too well). It's good that your doctor is checking the easy-to-treat and not-taken-seriously problems first.

    And that's unfortunate because that one makes sense. I'd allow it.

    Armchair astrophysics. Not really a game, more like studying for fun. But brain-bending nonetheless.

    I had the same exact name as someone else in the Service. I kept getting her emails. No I am not the subject expert in this one thing, I'm a generalist in everything else. I say 'had' because she retired last year. And now I'm the only one again.

    Our smoke alarm is going to spend the night in the basement while it thinks about what it's done. We got home from work at 130am as usual. There's this shrill beep. Ugh. A minute or so later another one. Then another one. The interval was chaotic, anywhere from 15 seconds to 7 minutes. We had to wake up the building manager to get him to remove the thing. He's taken it to the basement where it can beep to its little heart's content. I have taken a fistful of ibuprofen. I started the night with a migraine, this has not helped matters. Tired.

    fortunately, this isn't holding up any of my tax refunds - I'm mostly worried about trying sell my house later. There is also a much smaller worry that the IRS might decide to seize the property for auction, since one of these liens is nearing 10 years old, and IIRC, isn't there some sort of statutory limitations about IRS liens at 10 years? I'll gladly mail a letter - figure that's what I'd need to do, but not sure where to mail it to. I feel a lot better after talking with the title attorney today, instead of one of the title agents. I think I'll leave it in his hands for a few weeks, then look into the TAC route. The title attorney has actual avenues of action you don't. And a reason to do the work, this lien business makes him look bad. There is a 10 year issue in general. There's also avenues for extending that 10 year deadline in certain cases Now that you have the attorney on this I expect it'll get fixed soon enough. But mailing in the forms yourself is still a good idea. You can mail it to any of the service centers. Your closest one is in Kansas City. Address in the spoiler. Just remember while we can look people up by name, it does suck. Put your SSN on the letter along with name and any description of the situation you want. We actually read the letters. Detailed information is appreciated.

    I would pretend to be surprised at the wait times you're experiencing but I'm really not. The IRS has been hemorrhaging people ever since I signed up. And has problems hiring new ones. The jobs are posted but there's a combination of "not paid nearly enough for this" and "jobs are posted only in inaccessible places" and "it's the IRS" and "funded only at the whims of idiots, see last January for example" that tends to leave those jobs vacant. Is there a Taxpayer Assistance Center nearby? If so, try the TAC appointment line. You have now met the criteria of "yes I attempted to call you idiots never picked up also my house is in danger". Because if you can get into a TAC then you can slam the forms on the table dramatically and physically hand them to the IRS for processing. My partner is a CSR, someone who'd normally handle your case. She says writing "NOT AT THIS ADDRESS" on the certified letter and sending it back might actually help. Best case scenario it'll set the "no current address" freeze code and you won't get his mail anymore. You could also mail in a copy of your forms with a letter. Those actually get looked at, despite what most people think. It'll be routed to Collections where they'll work the case directly. And it'll be on the system where any time there's a problem the case can be found on the main system and reviewed "yep, this guy doesn't owe money. Release the refund!"

    Good news. I won the auction! It's like a whole Bones 2 pledge! There's two core sets! And DDS2! And that dragon I wants! Neutral news. I (purposefully) left the bin full of minis in my friend's car. He'll deliver the minis to me on Saturday. I did not want to try to carry a whole bin to the train station. Bad(ish) news. That means no pics or inventory until next weekend.
