Sorry, Internets


October 10, 2012 by Julia

I went on vacation to a place I thought would have free wifi . . . and it did not.  Seriously, who charges for wifi in this day and age?!

I haven’t seen the news for three days, so let me check that out and I’ll have some angry ranting for you shortly.  Also, reviews of Gambit, Accel World, and Arcana Famiglia.  Whee!

    Between my getting a nasty cold for two days and then each of my two kids getting the same cold… Yeah. The “free ice cream machine” here at MININERD Central is on the fritz.

      Geez, that sucks, sorry. I’ve been on an almost entirely traditional medicine regimen for a year, and I haven’t gotten sick at all–I got sick 4 times in the year before that, so I decided to nip it in the bud. Once you’re healthy (you do usually need pharmaceuticals to kill full-blown colds dead), I highly recommend natural prevention. It’s also a lot cheaper than things like Allegra, which I used to take as prevention (not only did it not totally prevent everything, but when it went over the counter, my price tripled).

      I’m getting seriously more crunchy than I ever expected

        I get a two colds a year, every year, without fail… just as Summer gives way to Autumn, and again as Autumn gives way to Winter. Been doing that since I was ten. Since they’re “just” colds, it’snever been too much of a bother.

        My girls are six and three. No power in this `verse can prevent them from getting minor sicknesses like colds. Well, maybe one of those “bubble boy” rigs, but those are kinda pricey.

        On the crunchy side of things, I highly recommend Rod Dreher’s Crunchy Cons. Great book.

        I got at least two full-on sinus infections every year every yer of my life, mostly related to pollen and being bitch-slapped by winter and spring. Now because of the stupid city I live in (it was the only change, so it has to be to blame), my ears got messed up during one of the infections, and now I get ear infections IN ADDITION TO every sinus infection. Well, the bacteria can kiss my ass. I don’t even let them take hold anymore. I just got too miserable being sick every three months, and holy crap, ear infections HURT.
