Annanuther Member Joins the Herd

...and here i are.  another of the kos refugees.  many of you are already here and know me.  i'm a retired ME (and just for the record, CSI is a TV show, not life in the ME's offices), my ME status is a Ph.D. not an m.d and i don't give medical advice to live people.  i may give an opinion if asked but i'll always refer you to your own doctor.  what i may do, also, is, if i have had similar to your medical complaint, give you my experience, and still refer you to your own doc.  i can't prescribe and i won't.

i'm a panda lover.  i've been to china to see the pandas and experience the chinese culture. i adore fuzzy animals.  i admire reptiles, but i won't approach one.  fish are cool, but, i prefer the marine mammals.  bears, pandas, polar, all kinds are my favorite animals.  i love the pootie diaries although i can't have cats.  allergies to cat saliva, alas.  

LabWitch :: Annanuther Member Joins the Herd
i'm also a heavy duty reader.  lots of history, lots of biography.  some novels.  i have to find the book people here and volunteer to write some pieces for them if they'll have me.

i'm liberal in politics.  i do own guns, but, i'm no gun enthusiast.  i had to carry when i worked as we were considered LEOs, ME's aren't considered LEOs anymore in texas.  i do have a concealed carry permit, but rarely use it.  i have long guns (hunting type guns)and the most i shoot with those are targets and clay pigeons, although i am not as good with skeet as i used to be.  old eyes ya know. i have no problem with the new proposed regulations and see no reason to own a military style weapon.  

i'm a firm disbeliever in conspiracies, particularly those involving the President.  i have a bit of a crush on Joe Biden and i admire Dr. Jill and the First Lady immensely.

i have internal and external scleroderma, so my immune system is highly compromised (hence early retirement from the ME duties).  which is why most of my typing, and i apologize for this, is in lower case.  my hands pain me both from the arthritis the scleroderma causes and from the swelling it also causes, hence it follows that my hands don't easily move over the keys.  i can either use all caps (i'm of the old school and feel like that's yelling) or all lower case.  i'll try to do better, but, on some days, like today, it just doesn't work. i also have raynaud's disease which causes my fingers and toes to ache badly and become numb so some days, typing is hard.

i'm in texas, and while at one time i was proud of my state for the political talent it contained and gave the nation, i can't wait to get outta here these days because of teh stupid.

i'll bash john cornyn whenever possible and won't even give rick perry the time of day.

feel free to ask any questions regarding my old profession.  i'll answer to the best of my ability.

so ... hello to old friends and i hope to make lots of new friends here!  

p.s. sometimes i can be pretty grouchy, so this is fair warning.

it'll take me a while to quit hitting the fail button, i'm so used to that being the rec button LOL.  so far so good though.

hope you are well and it's good to see all the formerly orange good people here.

i will certainly do my best (2.00 / 21)
i was only nasty once at kos.  the guy i was nasty to was a pretty ugly customer and one woman, whom i was trying to calm but was so hysterical about anyone owning a gun (i'm no gun enthusiast, i just didn't think the rkba was going to kill her and tried to explain that) got me reported and kicked out more than once.  i'm there in good standing again, with mojo and everything ... also an admonition to "not make me regret this" from mr. orange himself.  that's about when i gave it up.  of course this is all history you all probably know.

when i was trying to calm ms. hysteria, she kept on and on and then got nasty.  immaturity is not something i suffer easily, but you who know me already know that. :-)

Hello LabWithc, welcome to the Moose! (2.00 / 25)
I like the handle, though not sure if you used to be a lion or found out your birth certificate was mis-dated (don't tell Trump). Not to worry, misdated lions are fairly common around here.

JanF's Welcome diaries have sort of taken over from the traditional Moose Welcome comments, you can find HOWTOs and so forth there. If Kysen comes by with the welcome wagon I recommend not choosing the blue liquid that looks like barbasol.

The Moose is run by a consortium rather than an individual, because we think that Bennie Franklin and his buds were onto something. In pseudo-Victorian fashion we tend towards a mannered civility at all times, particularly under duress, but are not against running someone through with a sword where need be.

Should you encounter an actual Troll, please leave them be so that your return fire is not lost to history when they and their commentary are removed.  If an actual live Moose gets out of hand ("you have guns so you hate Jesus!") we only ask that you do your best to be as civil in response as they are not being. Moderators will - after joining in a communal huddle/coven - talk offline with the upset party and take what action is necessary to keep the planets revolving in stately fashion.

There are a few bodies buried under the floorboards, but rather than using your ME skills just shove the boards back in place and carry on back to the bar.

-cheers!

thank you Chris (2.00 / 17)
i'll do my best to follow your advice.  

LabWitch was born when i was an ME.  i was known as the Lab Bitch (insistence on perfection!).  then my son came along and accompanied me to the lab often when he was a toddler.  one day he called me the Lab Bitch so ... we changed it to LabWitch.  cut down on a lot of embarrassing situations. :-)

I just make that shit up... ;~) (2.00 / 7)
Teh werdz, they is a funny that way sometimes.

But it is a fine line, but worth trying to toe.

My sig below is perhaps my most fundamental belief. I am not without my failures trying to live up to it (elder moose: stfu aboudit... :~), but there seems little that is more worth striving for. Six million years we have scratched our way above blind hand-to-mouth existence, we owe it to the poor ignorant slobs we preceded us to try to live up to their effort.

Sometimes my friends have to drag me to the ground and take me outside to cool off. That's part of it.

Nobody is perfect (except for Happy ;~), but it is an unattainable goal worth reaching for nonetheless.

i just abandoned the place (2.00 / 28)
before the elections.  the stridency and the hysteria just got to be too much.  it wasn't fun anymore.  also, since kos had kicked me out once and then made me humiliate myself by kissing his ring to get back in, it certainly left a bad taste in my um mouth so i just quit going there.  i may use some of its features to write a diary and then post it here, but only because i have a lifetime membership at orange hell.  i figure, someone paid for that membership, i'm gonna at least use the features.

I also got tired of it (2.00 / 3)
even before my second dose of NR which caused me to never look back.  I wrote this somewhere else, and it basically sums up my feelings:

"I keep getting the feeling that piefights on DK (NB: Of which I am amongst the most guilty in participation) are beginning to resemble vultures fighting over a dead animal.  The corpse being the idea of a vibrant and influential 'netroots' that will force the powers that be to bend to the will of the people."

It's a sad and somewhat disenheartening situation, and I do not fault anyone who disagrees with my opinion.  I do know for myself that I react badly to a state of perpetual struggle, and I just got tired of it.

the other panda base we visited, Wolong, does not house red pandas.  only giant pandas.  i love them all.

there are, or at least were (2.00 / 6)
red pandas in shanghai, in the zoo.

the red pandas we visited were in a panda breeding base at Cheng Du.  that base has a remit for both giant and red pandas.  these are really more like giant panda preserves.  with enclosures to be sure, but they are more wild and less like zoos.  san antonio tx used to have red pandas, but after weather heat problems the programmed was discontinued and the reds sent to zoos with more equable climates.  it was just too darn hot in south tx for those little cuties.

I'm so glad you're here! You'll find lots of readers, including plf515 - Peter - who posts his "What Are You Reading" blogs in the recent list.

Feel better soon, and don't worry about the typing. At least you can spell; I'm known to get pretty original in that department.

Gotta go find a doc who works on the living. I've had a staph. pneumoniae infection in my sinuses since last summer that just won't go away. It responds to abx it's sensitive to but always comes back. Must be up in there in a place without good blood supply, or something.

PS - No mention of your dogs? Really? NOT FAIR! :)

spontaneous combustion.  of course there is no such animal.  the conditions of the fire and the clothing worn by the victim caused it to look like maybe he just burst into fire which consumed all but a hand and left the room smoky, but intact.  it's a wicking effect caused by the atmospheric condition in the room and the clothing worn.  that one was weird.

fortunately i've missed getting it.  unfortunately, we have an inground swimming pool and the threat of WNV sure cuts down on the times it can be used due to the mosquitoes schedule.  

i hope your health issues resolve.  that virus plays merry hell with your immune system.  some who've gotten it here are still on ventilators, out of hospital, but still have to have help breathing and doing physical tasks.

good luck to you, i'll talk to the universe about giving you a little help.

i'll say i'm very fortunate., WNV is a very sneaky virus presenting as a flu. i was very healthy with no diseases or ailments and my symptoms were between mild and severe.

for months there was the overwhelming fatigue, some intermittent memory loss and the darn, everpresent F O G.

it was only a few weeks ago that i woke up one day and realized i felt base line normal again.

others haven't been so lucky.

I tend to wander off, so I can't promise to always attend, but if there's a heads up in the open thread or the F bomb in the morning I'll do my best.

Drat. I wish I were more reliable. Maybe here I will be.


Let there be light. Then let there be a cat, a cocktail, and a good book.

do MEs use statistical analysis?  It seems to me like they could.

I still have writing obligations over at GOS but I'm spending more and more time here.

Welcome, a bit late, still fulsome and thensome more (2.00 / 2)
Don't know if we met while paddling though the orange swamp.
Sorry to have missed you there, although not to missed your recent troubles with the shoot from the hip in the comment guy.
I love your sig line.
What a perq.
And good on you for being a perfectionist on the job.

One way to avoid Failing when you mean to fierce is to come to a party that you happened to miss like this one, and just practice fiercing everyone. Muscle habit training. Also, when you arrive on time at the next party you are likely to get a warm welcome from the peeps whom you fierced.

"COUNTY OFFICIALS TO TALK RUBBISH"- from 'Anguished English'

hi Abra! (2.00 / 2)
over here waving happily-it's wonderful to see you've found your way. We're having stormy looking skies this afternoon and may just see some rain. If it starts sparking I'll have to sign off. We sit on a bit of a hill with not a whole lot around us. Most of the time it's great 'cause of the view but it can feel a bit vulnerable during thunderstorms.

There's nothing like eavesdropping to show you that the world outside your head is different from the world inside your head.--Thornton Wilder
