  1. I think part of the point of Zyprexa is that it works fast. Do you feel better?
  2. I’ve seen A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte in person. The reproductions don’t give a sense of how big it is. You could definitely live there. I’m sure the sewage has cleared since it was painted. If your life had a theme song, what would it be?
  3. There, their, and they’re. Your and you’re. It’s and its. The Oxford comma. Get off my grammar, you goddamn kids.
  4. @Cerberus, I surely did notice that. One can only be nostalgic.
  5. If it were Ambien, I’d say welcome to the club, but Zyprexa I don’t know. Although there’s this... https://ajp.psychiatryonline.org/doi/full/10.1176/appi.ajp.158.7.1158
  6. Solutions and Other Problems, by Allie Brosh, author of Hyperbole and a Half.
  7. @Cerberus, I am aware of that. It’s so difficult to find a universally objectionable curse these days. I chose “bag of dicks” because, while an occasion to rejoice for some, the sentiment is widely recognized as being intended to be disagreeable. Also, I was able to find a picture of a bag of edible dicks.
  8. I don’t trust much of anyone. I like spaces with doors I can lock tightly behind me, ideally with latches that can only be undone from the inside. I like having dogs around, which is ironic, because in an emergency I’m sure I’d end up protecting these two furbags, but they make a lot of noise. It doesn’t feel like anxiety. It’s too acute.
  9. No, it can’t. Not ever. “Sleep twenty hours and awake refreshed” is absurd, and an abuse of our overworked emergency services.
  10. I saw that article, too. I’m not clear on the age range it’s supposed to affect; the article sort made it seem like anyone over thirty, which frankly is most people who’ve gotten sick anyway. Missed out on this effect, but still impacted every day.
  11. She needs to kick that shit up a notch.
  12. @Hopelessly Broken, different counties use different terms, and not even consistently. We have something here called a Silver Alert, which means that a senior citizen is lost. I’ve never heard that called “eloping,” even though it’s the exact same thing as when an autistic person wanders off: An old person has gotten out of a care facility or away from whomever is meant to helping them.
  13. Colonel Legendary Sex Panda, we’ve been through this before. As usual, the wise Cerberus has put it well. I’m sorry it hurts so much in your head sometimes. There are better ways to cope. Have you tried jigsaw puzzles? Building wee houses out of matchsticks? Drag? You’d look great in heels. I like you, too. And I think you’re funny. Do you think I’d read 1,001 posts of drivel?
  14. Has anyone here read The Blue Sword and The Hero and the Crown, by Robin McKinley? Damar. I want to live in Damar. So...but if you did have to live in a painting, which one would you chose? (I recommend against anything by Hieronymus Bosch or the final years of Francisco Goya, but you do you.)
  15. My best friend is in her 40s, served in the Army, has a Bachelor’s degree, and flatly refuses to cross the street anywhere except at the corner and with the light, because otherwise it’s spatially too much for her to process.
