« first day (2212 days earlier)   

12:01 AM
I have to go now, it is very late here. Good night everybody!
 
Sue
@rumtscho Nighty Night! Thanks again!
@Jefromi Wow - this is really weird. I'm seeing all of my own searches and not his. (They're almost all SE related, so he sees everything I've been researching.)
I'm also seeing what I've watched on YouTube but not his.
 
Does he search from multiple devices?
or just a phone and a shared computer?
and if it's YouTube too uh....
if it's just the phone, then I would be suspicious he managed to find a setting to disable history on it.
exactly how to get to it probably depends on android version, but in the settings in the google search app/google now, there should be something like accounts & privacy > activity controls and in that there'll be settings for whether it saves your activity for various things
 
Sue
@Jefromi Just a phone and a shared computer. It's all under one profile so does that mean I'm the one who found a setting and changed it, like maybe in the privacy settings?
I've been playing in those lately.
 
and those settings I think apply just to that phone
you haven't disabled history entirely, just apparently from his phone
but... if you fix this, it just means you'll both see each other's searches
 
Sue
@Jefromi Seeing each other's searches is no problem. He thinks I messed something up which I probably did, but it would have been from the computer, which is where I play in the account settings.]
I did disable some type of search in order to increase privacy, but then he couldn't search so I had to put it back.
I can't remember what that was at the moment.
Wow - I can see all the songs I've listened to on youtube and endless pages of searches for information about flowers, etc!
I don't see the things from my private browsing pages though, which makes sense-those must device controlled right?
In the device list, I do see all the devices - for instance, he's using the ipad right now at work and I'm seeing that in the device page. I think I'll play around with all the different views and options on that page. I should be able to delete things individually and see what happens. I'll also check the privacy settings.
Best feed the cats first!
It must be dinner time soon out on the west coast anyway, right?

That's my 20 pound cat on the keyboaradfd!
Nighty night and thanks again!

sorry, work happened
good night!

10:24 AM
Quiet day.
 
 
1 hour later…
11:42 AM
Really quiet.
@Jolenealaska Are you okay?
 
 
1 hour later…
1:07 PM
@Cindy Yes, I'm OK.
My leg is much, much, much, much better.
Almost normal.
 
2:06 PM
hellooo?
 
heloooo
 
hello!
how you doing?
 
Much better
My swollen leg caused a 15 pound weight increase.
 
wowsa
 
At least that is an actual number I can report to my doctor.
If there isn't a reason for it (?), I think it's reasonable to request Lasix. I didn't leave my apartment for four days because I couldn't put on shoes.
 
2:16 PM
Lasix?
 
A diuretic.
Often prescribed for high blood pressure.
 
Hell of a thing to pee 15 pounds in one day!
 
imagine it in one sitting :D
 
I wish!
I wore out the tile in my bathroom.
 
2:22 PM
0_0
I need to check my weight tommorrow
 
On that note... brb
 
My uniform pants don't fit any more
 
uniform?
 
I wish my uniform pants still fit.
I don't weigh a lot more than I did when I was in the Army. But I am a lot fatter.
Fatter seems to be like cuss words. Dragon won't type it.
 
probably your accent
;)
 
2:29 PM
I grew up in Iowa. I don't have an accent :)
 
oh, you do
you sound like a character from Fargo
 
My husband grew up near Boston. I think I've told you this story. When I met him he had no discernible accent. Three days with his family and he was paaaaking his caaaaa.
 
ha, yeah
mrs the tall is the same
 
She's Scottish, yes?
 
2:33 PM
I work in a casino
For some reason IT dresses like low rent mafia hitmen
 
@JourneymanGeek probably cheaper to do that than actually hiring hitmen.
 
@Jolenealaska brb, checking on wikipedia if my employer has any obvious mob affliations...
 
It's a casino. Of course it has mob connections:)
 
nah, nowadays they're all owned by huge corporations
legal organised crime
 
In the US, most casinos outside of Vegas or Atlantic City are run by native corporations.
Otherwise, they wouldn't be legal.
 
2:38 PM
so I understand
is gambling legal across Nevada or is it specific cities?
 
That doesn't mean that they aren't mobbed up
@ElendilTheTall I'm not sure. I know prostitution is by county.
There are slot machines in the Vegas airport.
 
@Jolenealaska the parent company of my current employer is from vegas
 
Totally mobbed up then :)
I'm an IT guy and I work for the mob
 
more like MGM
 
I think thats even better than I used to work for NSA
 
2:42 PM
Well, the place I work for is named after a place that was definately mob owned.
"You, my friend, will learn the true meaning of... Have you turned it off... and on... again"
 
An entire episode of Star Trek the Next Generation was based on exactly that.
 
shark stubbed its toe on a coral reef:
 
I hate it when that happens
 
2:57 PM
tum tee tum
hey
I have a crossword and my boss has just buggered off early
 
Hit me!
 
adjust hard traces on outdated transport
5,3,4
horse and cart
 
I was just about to say that
 
shows some grief when there's a sad mix up, (5,1,4)
sheds a tear
it's sun heat refracted, fan needed (10)
first letter E
 
Does snafu fit for the first five of the first one?
Oh
nm
the E is just screwing me up
Everything I try starts with a
 
3:11 PM
ok
accommodate a fellow practitioner at hospital 8
5th letter E
Is the seaman going with the Spanish girl? 6
 
resident?
Oh no
Isabel
 
👍
the E one is an anagram of 'it's sun heat'
enthusiast
does that work?
 
Enthusiast is absolutely an anagram
I'm not sure how it fits otherwise
 
Ah
I was trying to picture fans in the attic
I called Troi today to let her know about my new car. Jeez that woman can talk. Our conversation lasted over an hour.
 
3:25 PM
ha
and that's coming from you
;)
 
We ended up talking mostly about Trump.
On him we agree.
Actually, we agree on much.
Including that my former car was a piece of crap
And we're both scared of traffic circles
But not so much with a V-8
And she made me laugh by saying something that I have said
"I've never driven a V-8"
And I'm suddenly not scared of traffic circles!
Little old ladies behind me giving me the finger
 
are your 'traffic circles' usually multi-lane?
 
Two lane
(these)
The granddaddy of them all was in Washington DC.
 
what form do your highway exits take if not traffic circles, I wonder
 
I think that was probably 4 lane
It either ends in a light, or standard merging.
I would imagine that the vast majority of people in the US have never actually driven a traffic circle
I think if they did, we would have a whole lot more V-8 engines.
 
3:38 PM
if you did, you would all know how to use them properly
 
That's the thing. We don't know how to use them.
 
indeed
 
It does seem that acceleration is key
 
no, giving way to the left (in your case) is key
and knowing your car's capabilities so you know whether you can proceed or not
also, signalling
 
Of course giving way is key, but when little old ladies are flipping you the bird because you're scared to accelerate into the lane, you're screwed.
 
3:41 PM
no, you just have an old lady flipping you the bird
that's her problem, not yours
if you don't feel you can join the circle safely, then you stop
fuck everyone else
 
I have spent upwards of 10 minutes trying to merge.
 
well that is mental
but I presume that's because no one is giving way for you
 
They scare the crap out of me
 
if you're approaching and someone is to your right (ie if you're joining at 6 o'clock and someone is coming in at 3 o'clock) they should stop
 
scared
I know how they work.
 
3:44 PM
I know
tell everyone else
PSA
 
Thankfully, I no longer have to deal with it with a scary car
 
while you're at it, tell people not hog the fucken middle lane
 
How about people who drive slow ssssslllllooooowwww in the passing lane?
 
basically middle lane hogs
:D
people have the notion that it's slow lane/medium lane/fast lane. They think "well, I'm not some old biddy, and I'm not a maniac, so I'll just stick to the nice sensible middle lane"
IT'S TWO OVERTAKING LANES MORON
GET THE FUCK BACK OVER
 
For many years I drove on a two-lane mountain highway just to get groceries. FFS, I hate RVs.
In the state of Alaska it's actually illegal to have (even if you're driving the speed limit) some number of cars behind you.
Pull over and let them pass.
 
3:54 PM
if you're doing the speed limit, why are you in the passing lane?
(rhetorical question of course)
 
Two lane, meaning one each direction.
And it's mountain, meaning curvy.
Have I ever mentioned that there are no guardrails?
There are actually, but they are rare.
Every one should have a memorial plaque
 
right, home time
have a good one, Brown
 
Bye sweetie.

I don't tweet nor often twext.
So I totally get it.
 
Jay
although the photo isnt really a good angle of me but whatever. haha
 
I knew was you though.
 
Jay
6:49 PM
im just happy its over and how well it turned out
 
My 15 minutes of fame was on YouTube.
 
Jay
what did you do
what type of video were you in?
 
I commented on a very well received video.
 
Jay
oh gtocha
gotcha
 
My comment was up voted so often to be pinned.
 
Jay
6:51 PM
nice haha
 
I still look at it upon occasion.
It's kind of the same thing
You might like this. I lost 15 pounds yesterday.
And I didn't even give birth
 
Jay
@Jolenealaska surgery?
 
For reasons not yet understood, my right leg swelled tremendously.
 
Jay
took a giant giant giant shit?
 
Close!
 
Jay
6:58 PM
haha
it swell so much that you gained 15lbs? and then it got better yesterday?
either way, congrats
 
It took four days before it started to recede. When it did so, I literally lost 15 pounds in one day.
 
Jay
thats kind of crazy. im glad you are better now
 
Me too
I didn't leave my apartment for four days because I couldn't put on shoes.
 
Jay
:(
 
New car too.
It sucked!
 
Jay
7:01 PM
ohhh new car
OH y ea Im going apple and pumpkin picking on saturday!
coincidentally i have a bunch of friends whos birthday is in oct
so ill be able to get a good supply of apples to make them all pies
 
V-8 luxury oh my God car from my dreams. Alton Brown has an amazing apple pie recipe.
 
Jay
@Jolenealaska ive been using the same apple pie recipe for the past 5 years and been slowly making slight adjustments to the amount of spice and sugar and other ingredients so im pretty happy with my recipe
 
He uses applejack (80 proof) in his crust.
The alcohol inhibits gluten.
It's friggen amazing.
Other than that, I'm sure your recipe rocks. However, on that note, Alton rocks.
 
Jay
haha
I actually use a pretty standard pie crust but its also super awesome
mostly because butter is amazing
2 cup flour, slightly less than 1 cup butter and small amount of salt with like 6 tbsp water
 
I agree with butter. Butter is amazing.
I love butter
 
Jay
7:11 PM
im not sure how i feel about food processing the crust
itll be more shortbread-ish rather than flakey
 
I think you can use the applejack in any way you desire.
To use that instead of water is the key.
 
Jay
although i might substitute apple jacks for the water at some point and see
but i have to be careful because im also making a pie for a 1 year's bday
and i dont want accidentally switch the pies haha
 
I would not worry about it.
It's not like you're giving him a shot.
 
Jay
haha mothers are generally not as forgiving regarding their 1 year old children
but generally i go for 4 honeycrisp and 2 granny smith in each pie
ive never used golden delicious
 
I have had more than a few conversations with mothers like that. I think it's Jojo 10, ridiculous mothers 0.
 
Jay
7:16 PM
or eaten one either in fact
 
I love Honeycrisp.
 
Jay
i think we might have had this conversation before haha
 
Jay
i really hope on saturday the honeycrisp trees are completely bare
 
I wish they weren't so damn expensive here.
 
Jay
7:17 PM
but i think its early enough in the season for there to still be come left
 
Three dollars a pound
 
Jay
its expensive everywhere
its $3.99/lbs here
so i usually end up spending $10+ just for the apples for each pie
 
Or each, dunno
But honycrisp is an awesome apple.
For eating or baking.
 
Jay
feat of bio-engineering
 
Yeah
 
Jay
7:20 PM
im been trying to find a second best for honeycrisp
 
The only one that even comes close is grainy
 
Jay
i think in terms of texture fiji and in terms of flavor, pink lady
 
Granny Smith
 
Jay
but so so far away from honey crisp
 
It is
 
Jay
7:22 PM
i think granny smith is hard to judge because there is varying level of ripeness of granny smith and its hard to tell since its basically green the whole time
i love the slightly riper granny smiths (for eating)
when its slightly sweeter but still very crunchy
 
That sounds like a very good question for the main site.
 
Jay
i usually end up cutting off the peel because granny smith usually have a tougher peel compared to other apples
 
How can I tell?
I need to leave. Sorry, I enjoy seeing you, but I need to lay back down. My leg is starting to swell again.
Have a great day!
 
Jay
bye!
good chatting with you
