General Discussion / Which food could beat the winter blues?
« on: October 25, 2015, 02:46:52 am »
Not that earth shattering of an article.


General Discussion / Flu shot tomorrow.....
« on: October 23, 2015, 01:46:52 am »
Can't wait!  To hand out creepy Halloween rings :o to the staff.

Also, I have a plastic bat - I'll put it to my neck, and ask if they can remove vampire bats from peoples' (sp.) necks.

Besides, rings, skulls, skeletons, I also have realistic, plastic maggots......not too many takers....they even creep me out a bit - sticky!   ;)


I sometimes hang the maggots from my glasses.

General Discussion / cataracts....
« on: October 07, 2015, 04:33:14 pm »
Retina specialist told me yesterday I have cataracts in both eyes.  I was taken aback, but not worried.  "Old age" he said.

I sometimes briefly forget if I'm 68 or 69 in June.  69.

This is a repeat, but I see a retina specialist because I have a tear and a hole on the back of my right retina.  I forgot to ask him yesterday if I still have both.  Not serious, as I only see him twice a year.

I had my retina repaired via laser.  Also not serious - done in Dr's office kind of spur of the moment, hardly hurt, no anaesthetic or anything.
I think a hole and tear are kinda funny.  :P

Hole and tear don't really affect vision - but can cause flashing lights and GIANT 'floaters," but they're transparent.  Haven't had those in 2 years or so.


General Discussion / Saw inexpensive SAD lamp...
« on: September 29, 2015, 12:32:05 am »
Saw an inexpensive, small SAD lamp at Shoppers.  I forget the price....not sure how good it is.

I have a more expensive one from Shoppers, but from the stores that are attached to Shoppers that sell crutches and such...  I don't really use it.


General Discussion / Ever thought of taking a self-defense course?
« on: July 17, 2015, 11:28:41 pm »
(this question has nothing to do with MH or being a "Moodie.")

Took judo in Grade 7 - doesn't count.


If I had extra $, I would take maybe Krav Maga - it was invented by a Jewish guy in Bratislava (?) who was sick of anti Semitic thugs. (years ago)

I believe it's used by the Israeli (and Russian?) armed forces? It's a combination of other martial arts.

There are other Russian self defence methods........I forget the names.

Why am I interested? - I'm old (68), in a dumpy neighbourhood, fitness, the world is more and more dangerous.  Exercise.....confidence.



General Discussion / getting a cat first one
« on: May 17, 2015, 11:06:26 pm »
Right side of page, half way down....Peshawna.

 I wanted a middle-aged cat....they're "on the shelf" a long time.

 Lots of their cats have ailments!!! Sheesh......litterbox problems etc....mine had minor stuff.

 I'll build a little fort for him to hang around in at first.....since he'll be scared.

This is life changing!


 No shortage of toys around here....looking for small toy robots......7 dollars each. From the Source (formerly Radio Shack)

Peshawana.....right side of page, halfway down.....this will be take off the site soon

bounce cheers

General Discussion / Which meow should I adopt?
« on: May 17, 2015, 12:11:52 am »

 don't find long haired cats appealing.....not because of shedding.
 Same with orange, but I would take one.

 I hope to get an older one, but not like 14-16 years old.

 Someone told me to get a male, because they're more.......?.........I forget....never heard of that.

 Problem....walking me up at odd hours.....but that's life.

 I have tiny apt, if the cat is used to a housel.,,,,,,,

 But my tin apt has lots of nooks and that light up.... I'm getting a bunch of toy robots at The Source (formerly Radio Shack. Only six bucks each. They have a swimming robot that I would but in a container of water - that'll make the cat curious.

 There are pairs of cats than can't be prob, but my tiny apt.......


It wouldn't be bored around here!

Ordering some cat DVD's from Amazon....DVD's of birds, squirrels....

General Discussion / Shaved my chin spinach.....
« on: May 12, 2015, 02:34:35 am »
Shaved the other day for the first time in 38 years!  Left on goatee and moustache for now (short).
I had a very short beard before, trimmed my neck the last few years.

I look the same now.......LOL....because my beard was so short.  And nice to see underneath most of the beard.
I get a bit of acne now and then.  (Mother Nature:  Haven't you noticed I'm 68 in June?  >:()

The acne is almost always in the goatee/moustache area.

 :(  I'm a little worried some of my skin idiosyncracies (sp) will be more prominent now.

I have Fordyce condition/granules on my upper lip on one side.  Fordyce is common, but usually below the waist. You'll have to look it up....sorry.

Dr., shrink, nurse practitioner:  "I don't see anything. when I point it out to them."   >:(  But you can see it in photographs a bit.

Treatment is controversial....."this may work"....."may not" and so on........  I'd have to pay out of pocket.


See my avatar - see why I wear a straightjacket 24/7?.....LOL  :o

General Discussion / "Emergency Nap Syndrome"
« on: April 23, 2015, 01:36:56 am »
"Emergency Nap Syndrome" - borrowing one of Paul M,'s expression.... When you have a nap NOT on purpose, when you're depressed or anxious.

I had one tonite.

I'm getting a cat....but I wanna clean up/tidy up first in case it hides under the bed....or similar.

Anyway, I have a lot of tidying up to do.....  I was going to do a ton tonite, but I felt really drowsy all of a sudden, and HAD to take a nap.  No thoughts were going through my head...I just had to nap.

If I tell someone how long I've been putting off adopting a cat because of not tidying up......embarrassing!
 :-[  I wouldn't tell anyone that.

The unconscious/subconscious (?) reason I keep putting this off - getting a cat is a change in routine/lifestyle......especially maybe sleeping routines, since cats can have non human sleep schedules....LOL


General Discussion / Comedy show on Thursday 16...
« on: April 18, 2015, 10:39:03 pm »
We did a comedy  ;D show April 16 at the Imperial Pub and Library, just east of Eaton Centre.

It went well, but a lot of it was a blur.....I took Lorazepam before, but I don't think that caused the blur.

This show wasn't advertised because the back room where we played is so small it only holds friends and relatives of the comics...

There may be a group picture of us on the MDAO site.


General Discussion / Hi, Any experience with warm lines?
« on: April 05, 2015, 02:19:13 am »
I haven't tried any.  They may have been mentioned here before, but I may have not paid so much attention.
I believe MDAO and that centre downtown has one?.....forget the name -Gerstein Centre?

General Discussion / "Positive" anxiety....
« on: February 21, 2015, 03:35:42 pm »
I have some tricks to play on my weekly comedy class.

I'm thinking about them over and over and getting positive (?) anxious and upbeat.

I'm so upbeat that I'm talking to strangers/female strangers a lot more!  Which reminded me that this is a new habit I had, that I've been slacking off on lately - because I don't like where I live (I like the building, though).  My neighbourhood is a bit of a cloud over my head.

So now I'll continue, hopefully, to talk to strangers/female strangers at bus stops etc.
