I keep telling myself to eat more fruit and veggies, but today I had a mini epiphany. Coffee is totally is a fruit. So, yeah I'm healthy.

7 just found "a really old quarter" and wanted to know if it was the kind with silver in it. It's from 1979...

What kind of high-school experience did you have? Were you in a clique? Were you popular, unpopular, the coolest kid in your Homeschool? Did you have a sweet jean jacket with patches, or maybe a leather vest? Were you an evil villain or a Mary Sue?

@RickiTarr I was much like I am now... A rampant extrovert flitting here and there. I was not part of any cliques, but had like 1 real friend in just about every clique. I'd interact with nearly anyone unless I took a dislike to that person, but I'd only truly befriend "my people." I was probably too quirky to be considered popular, but outgoing enough I don't think I was unpopular. TBH I never really cared about that since there was always someone interesting to meet or hangout with.

My love affair with heat packs continues.

@the_etrain I get you, but prefer ice. I've got 3'x2' ice pack. An ice blankie, if you will. It is one of my prized possessions.

What if the weird thoughts I have popping into my head are animals trying to telepathically communicate with me?

QueenOfCoffee,
@QueenOfCoffee@beige.party avatar

@RickiTarr maybe it's like the Tom Robbin's book Half Asleep in Frog Pajamas where the aliens were trying to communicate with us through the stock market?

@HCBunny A healing journey? Does that mean we're going to get some empanadas?

QueenOfCoffee,
@QueenOfCoffee@beige.party avatar

@HCBunny right?! We would do it up Thelma and Louise style, but instead of Brad Pitt we'd share our journey with cheesy Spanish hand pies.

Just had this message from a friend and I am raging! “Think my running journey is over... Didn't make it2 10k as ran past a man who whistled at me & then stuck his foot out. Couldn't dodge it fast enough so went flying. Not sure I'll have the confidence to go out again
Being a woman feels really hard sometimes... 😔😔” Picture of cut lips and hand.

I have been cat called so many times running, and once a young man slapped my bum from behind and tried to pull me into the bushes, but I think this is worse. Why the fuck is women feeling powerful through running something men feel compelled to try and take away?

Do not “not all men” me

QueenOfCoffee,
@QueenOfCoffee@beige.party avatar

@purplepadma wow... I've never experienced anything like this when running. The worst was being chased by someone's off leash Yorkie. I may have been cat called, but wouldn't know since I have music on when I run. I would have been in jail because I would most likely have punched that guy.

In the past week my kids have lost

13s trumpet 7s baseball bag with all his gear
The remote to their tv

I've made 13 purchase a new trumpet....getting ready to tell 7 he's on the hook for his bats, helmet, and glove. Also, they can only watch tv if 13 is home because he downloaded a remote control app on his phone.

I'm tired.

What's a more work-appropriate way of saying that we need to idiot-proof something to protect our systems from our employees?

Also, if I've already said "idiot-proof" in conversations, emails, meetings, and presentations, what's a diplomatic yet convincing way to explain that away?

Please boost for visibility as I’m meeting with HR in less than an hour.

@QueenOfCoffee@beige.party avatar

@Alice I've got no diplomatic speech to speak of. Here for the suggestions.

Taking my nephew out tomorrow night in a first ever uncle nephew..... event? Going to see a band called Pierce The Veil, who I haven't really listened to before (but always love a gig).

I've worked hard to build a bridge for him - he lived with us for a few years when he was little, then when his parents split very acrimoniously we became the designated meeting point. Then when he came out as gay his dad (my BiL) disowned him for a bit, and without ego I will say I pieced that one back together and they're now 'fine' (dad is never going to be totally OK, but is slowly growing, against his will.

Anyway - point is, this kid is full emo, 6ft something, nothing of him, long purple hair, covered in self harm scars so wears long gloves, and is Extremely ND, so wears big earphones to avoid interactions.

We've never hung out 121 like this and I'm pretty sure he sees me as some alien thing, impossible to relate. But I'm very keen not to just hone on on everything he might be worried about to try and diffuse any tension by going in too hard on trying to relate. He doesn't need to know all of my struggles - I think that might just freak him out a bit. I know my tendency is to try and be the cool uncle, and don't want to fuck it up.

Look - I know this is a bit intensely personal. I'm putting it out there hoping someone has a magic solution for something to talk about on the hour and a half journey to get there (Alexandra Palace - great venue but so faaaar away), so I don't just say stuff like "so, how's your autism, I'm autistic now too" or "are you having a good time being gay?". I hope it'll be a positive and uplifting experience for both of us, but I am having a very tiny panic I might just be unbearably cringe to him.

QueenOfCoffee,
@QueenOfCoffee@beige.party avatar

@TheBreadmonkey I tend to talk to every one over the age of 10 like I would any other adult (minus sensitive topics). I suggest music as the topic. He obviously likes this band. You like live music. I'm sure he'll have his phone on him. Ask him to play some other stuff he likes. You share music you like, stories about shows you've been to.

Most people who are passionate about music could easily talk about it for hours in my experience.

Lots of debate about this, so I'm curious about the consensus.

Should children be allowed to act professionally, as in having a full time acting job in movie/TV/stage? Feel free to elaborate in the comments.

QueenOfCoffee,
@QueenOfCoffee@beige.party avatar

@RickiTarr not as a full time job. I'm fine if it's here and there as a side gig.. That would be like my kids playing sports or doing clubs after school. But no child should regularly be on set 8 hours a day, 5 days a week for longer than a day or two.

How long do child actors in leading roles actually spend on set? I never thought about this before.

QueenOfCoffee,
@QueenOfCoffee@beige.party avatar

@RickiTarr yeah... I don't love that. Maybe if it was just a couple days a month it would be fine, but even a couple days a week like that would give me concerns as a parent.

I've either hit the point of being so overwhelmed with work and life that I just keep zoning out and then realizing like 40 minutes have passed, or the insomnia is really catching up to me.

QueenOfCoffee,
@QueenOfCoffee@beige.party avatar

@mentallyalex hahahaha. Only after 1am when everyone else is in bed. Pretty sure that's part of the insomnia issue.

Yesterday 13 and 7 both had baseball games. I took 13. Hubs took 7 & 11. Both games ended around 8pm..then everyone was starving, homework, clean up for the cleaners coming today, it was 11pm by the time everything was done. Hubs went up to bed at 12:30. Once he was asleep I chilled until about 2am before falling asleep on the couch. Back up by 7am to do it again. It's going to be like this until mid June when school and spring sports are over.

QueenOfCoffee,
@QueenOfCoffee@beige.party avatar

@mentallyalex 3 years ago hubs gave me a Christmas present of a day or two to myself at a hotel or spa... I've never used it because the timing just hasn't worked out.

QueenOfCoffee,
@QueenOfCoffee@beige.party avatar

@mentallyalex just no free days right now between the issues with 11, work, all 3 kids being in spring sports, etc.

Work wanted to send me to 2 conferences this month, one for 3 days and the other for a week and I had to beg out of it.

Just need to soldier on. I can fall apart late June after I get my heart fixed.
