General Discussion / Re: bad feeling in stomach......

Re my father rarely giving advice, he was a "hands off" father.  (contrary to popular opinion, not everyone should be a parent!!!!!)
My mother did most of the child rearing (5 boys).....paid the bills, signed report cards, shovelled the snow all the time!!!!

My folks were from East Prussia, a part of Germany adjoining Lithuania....the Russkies took it over during WWII.
I didn't know until late in life that my VERY shy, anxious mother was pressured by her parents to marry him because his family had $.....the $ disappeared when they fled the Russians.  Never imagined that my father was from a semi-monied family!


General Discussion / bad feeling in stomach......

Not sure what emotion I'm feeling.

 My younger brother R has a photographic memory for family history.

My father worked at the same small meat market for ages......almost all the guys there German speaking.
My father received part of his salary in meat...a lotta much that my mother had to throw a lot of it out and not tell him - bad temper. He must've been dumb not to notice she did that. R said she buried the excess in the backyard - didn't know that.

 I knew the above except for burying the meat.......R said they started paying him partly in meat because they caught him stealing meat!!!! (not sure how they worked that out?) I only learned this yesterday.
 Ironically, the ONLY life advice my father ever gave me was "don't steal."

 My father could've gotten a higher paying union job (before the theft?) at Canada Packers, a giant company.....he didn't want to because then he'll have to improve his English. I guess he mainly spoke German at work.

They now have a lot more (?) dermatologists.

I got served in 5 minutes....nothing wrong with my skin.  No slapping around.....LOL.

But, their little sheet on their policies says some procedures aren't covered by OHIP, but I'm sure they are.....oh well.

We do our own introductions.  I chose something like:

"I never realized Peter was an alien......him eating uranium sandwiches in class should've been a tip off!"

I sometimes post stuff to hopefully get a laff/improve my mood.

Hi, Paul.....I thought the reason may be something like that.  I read a long time ago that there's a shortage of neurologists too.

Dragonfly, the one I'm seeing must be a recent hire.  He's not mentioned in any of the reviews.  Like I said, the reviews are mixed, but there are some good reviews.

The other guy does sound fishy!

Just in case, any tips on how to "bitch slap?"  ;) :-X

When I had skin cancer (the least bad kind) before, the symptom was very tiny cuts/openings on forehead that wouldn't blood, though.  I've been getting that the last few days....grrrr!  Maybe not.

I'm not Mr. Macho, but the above isn't a huge deal, doesn't hurt.

Also, the indentations on my forehead (not so noticeable) complement the hole and tear on the back of my right eyeball...... ;)  I'm not making this up.....also doesn't hurt, and also got laser treatment for that.....


Both laser treatments in Dr.'s office, not a hospital....very casual.

Asked Dr. for referral to dermatologist - thought face mole was changing. Maybe skin cancer, which I've had before....not a huge deal.

 Made appt today for next week (!).

 This clinic has very mixed reviews on the net:
 -they push 40 dollars a bottle over the counter cream (this is mainly a cosmetic skin clinic) - my giant hospital has no dermatology department! (anymore)  St. Michaels in Toronto.
 -the dermatologist asks patients to feel his face because he uses that cream
 -etc...etc.....some good reviews, though

 I'm suspicious of the very short waiting time to get in.....maybe they'll shunt me to the walk in clinic? (they call it something else)

 You need a Dr's referral to see a medical specialist, hence, no walk in clinic, but I guess you don't for cosmetic procedures which aren't covered by OHIP. (not my case)

 Still don't know what "bitch slap" means, but am I gonna have to bitch slap the Dr. etc. next week?  8)

 P.S. I'm seeing a different Dr than the one mentioned online.

Thanks!  Thought of something - when the tough cats do "f.... meow!"...they should have cigarettes hanging from their lips....  Now I gotta borrow a cigarette....or, find a fake one at Yonge street gag that has a long ash hanging on it....LOL


If teacher approves the above.

General Discussion / Another MDAO comedy show.....
« on: November 18, 2014, 08:46:19 pm »
On Dec 11, at the Imperial Pub and Library, just east of Yonge and Dundas.  I'm in it.

They're not advertising, as it's a tiny place, and a lot of seats will be taken up by friends and family.....
but I'm sure they would have some empty seats others could take.

There's probably an admission charge.  I guess phone MDAO for details?......probably pay at the door.


General Discussion / Anxious......then.....
« on: November 18, 2014, 08:42:58 pm »
Very anxious for some reason after I woke up today at 5:00 p.m.  :-[

Decided to meditate, which I may do even if I wasn't anxious.


-60 % less anxious
-doing things I've been putting off, like semi-complicated things:  paying for online memberships using Visa.

Of course, I don't always get results like this....but!

Peter  :)   Where's my cat emoticon?  Oh well......
