  1. Hey Ladies: Get Funky

    1. yarnandcats


      All the ladies in the house

      The ladies, The ladies

  2. Oooh, about to turn 4,000 on content count; is there a sticker? (better yet a cookie?)

    1. Cerberus


      There are complimentary Crazy Cookies in the community room, but they’re made with irony, so they have a bitter aftertaste, and the batter stirring involves OCD, so they end up like rubber. I don’t recommend them. If you’re still game, the ones with the green sprinkles are laced with antidepressants.

      On the one hand - thank you for being one of us and making such a contribution to the community here. 😃

      On the other, I’m sorry you’ve had 4,000 things to say about life with MI. I guess that makes you a veteran - and the wisdom you share all the more valuable.

  3. Got diagnosed with my second rare disease this week; must be a two-for-one special. 

    1. coraline


      Hopefully it's something you can recover from

  4. if i blast my ears with music through these headphones will the ringing stop?

  5. Hoops keeps turning off the touch desk lamp with his paw pads: light on, light off, light on, light off, light on, light off, ad infinitum.

      i just wanted to say that Hoops is an adorable name for a cat. at least i'm assuming he's a cat. good name for any animal, really.

      Do you remember The Clapper?


      My dog Henna realized she could turn the lamp on and off by barking just the right way. I have no idea how she made that connection.

      I had to unplug the Clapper.

    3. yarnandcats


      His proper name is Hooper (he's a grey tuxedo cat). It can be pronounced two different ways: hoop-er OR hupp-er. The second way is mainly indigenous to a small area in the Southern Mountains where a large clan of folks sur-named Hooper reside. (Re: The Clapper: that made me laugh really hard).

  6. Guilty?/Secret? Pleasure #47: watching/listening to drum covers on youtube, especially Ginger Baker's work ("Sunshine of Your Love") and Kansas' "Wayward Son."

    1. yarnandcats


      There's just something primal about beating the Hell out of drums and making the sounds sensical at the same time. And yes, I play several instruments, just not the drums.

    2. Fluent In Silence

      Fluent In Silence

      Hard to not like this drum cover.


  7. sugar-induced something-or-other = all night dance party. let's dance, folks.

    1. Gearhead


      Is that just the meds talkin'?

    2. yarnandcats


      don't think so...we're uncertain about just how much food has been eaten over the last 2 days. YMMV re: food definition (bugs? just lettuce? ice cubes?)

  18. overwhelmed by anxiety; fighting off the avalanche with a spoon. gah.

  19. just ignore all those ppl behind the curtain; we're a single entity, promise.

    2. chem


      Blech. It sucks when they puke. I hope they feel better soon!!

    3. yarnandcats


      thanks, ya'll. it was just one of the Five...but she puked in the bed! and woke All Of Us up, which we guess is good, because it needed to be cleaned up.
