Sometimes I post random stuff just to show I am still alive. 


I am so tired.  I did not get enough sleep.  I have a bottle that has been flavored with strawberry and has caffeine.  I do not want to try to go back to sleep now Breakfast is in 19 minutes.  I want to get dressed right now.  I need to get to work early so I have time to eat and get myself a large cup of coffee.

Me too smile

Sigh.. RDNA wishlist finally empty after 3 months! rolleyes big surprise And they said it would never happen!

Still 4 items in the Daz wishlist (2 squirrels, a V4 dress, and a jellyfish). smirk

Up to 10 items in my Rendo wishlist, lots of steampunk stuff and some clothes, weapons that sort of thing. rolleyes

Next Payday I’ll clear the Daz list, then it’ll be 2 more Paydays to clear the Rendo list.

Then I guess.. another external HD! This time at least a terabyte! shock 5 years ago I would have laughed my tail off if someone told me I’d need a bloody terabyte of storage. confused

Complaints: foot aches oddly, which apparently is typical, but it’s.. odd feeling. Non-complaint: no more physical therapy until the amputation wound heals, whoooo-peeeeee! Darn I was tired of all the tests!!! snake

Minor annoyance: Musicians Friend sending me “stuff on sale” emails when the stuff on sale is a pile of $3000 guitars! Cripes I can’t afford a $800 guitar!!! Gaahhhhh! shock

Must be some fancy guitar for 3K, does it play itself? smile

OK, I realize I have contributed mainly to the goofy in here. If that isn’t as welcome as I thought, I am sorry.
On the Forums I am used to (Rendo) a long thread is one that goes on for more than one page.

If I don’t really complain that much, there are reasons for that.
Real life:
My mother lived with me for 4 years after my Dad died. The 4th year of that time I took an early retirement because she would cry when I left for work in the morning. Over that last year with her at home, her macular degeneration took the rest of her sight and then senile dementia took almost all the rest of her from me. I had to do something I had repeatedly told her I would never do. I put her in a nursing home.
When I visit her she sometimes knows who I am, sometimes not, She has become very dysphasic, so most of our conversations are one-sided. She says Mama, Daddy, and God a lot, rarely using them as anything other than substitutes for other words she cannot recall. She does the same thing with words that rhyme with “-ag”, such as rag, nag, bag, sag etc.
If I am there at mealtime, I help feed her with a spoon.
I long for the brief flashes of memory that she has from time to time. The only truly meaningful conversations we have are when I tell her I love her. She tells me she loves me too. One day not long ago, she said something she had not said in a very long time. She said it often when I was growing up, and it was said in a humorous way but she always meant every word. It was this:
When I told her, “I love you.Mama” she would say “I love you more.”
Not much huh? But it meant the world to me to hear it again.
I always cry after every visit.

I have diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and clinical depression (big surprise, there, huh?) and take more medicine in a day than I used to take in a month 10 years ago.

So why don’t I complain more?
Firstly because I’m in a nursing home a lot, where I learned a valuable truth: There is always someone worse off than me.
And lastly, complaining doesn’t make me feel one damn bit better.
But being goofy does. cheese

If you came along with me on this long journey of a post, thank you for your compassion and understanding. I do appreciate it.
Finally, this post is not to “put anyone in their place”. I can definitely relate to all that has been said in here, both heartfelt and lighthearted. And I do hope I have responded in an appropriate way when any of you have voiced real concerns.
Thanks.
John

Thank you for saying that. I’m a line producer with an Indii production house making TVC’s mostly this year, about to switch jobs to a management role at one of the new digital TV stations here for six months next year. Dont usually spit the dummy but Im concerned that ppl who regularly post to this thread and have kept t going for years aren’t getting a fair go any more and Im satisfied that now they will smile

I would have logged in earlier in the week but my internet connection was acting up.  I saw the sun come out.  The past couple of days it was cloudy.

I wonder how many people have poked in here over the years and asked “Why is it called The Complaint Thread” when there arn’t any complaints?” I’ll bet Richard H. knows the answer as he’s had to come in many times and quiet down a philosophical discussion that got as serious as a religious or political one. In fact on one occasion he wondered it such discussions shouldn’t be banned under the TOS because of this thread.
Goofieness and being off topic in any kind of direction is NORMAL here! LOL

So, I’m ste…. er, borrowing Fiance’s external drive to back up my content folder before updating to 4.5.  I bought the Hiro bundle before realizing half the stuff I wanted to play with needed me to update.  We’re not getting new PC’s until around Christmas time (our gift to each other) and I’m impatient to play.

But that now means I’m trying to transfer 85gigs (at least - may be closer to 90 at this point).  So this is going to take forever.

In other news, I’ve dropped 19.8 pounds since the third week of August and have dropped two pants sizes.  Fiance has lost about 22 pounds but getting him to go to the store to learn what his pant size is, is like pulling teeth.  Stubborn man.

Oh, I did have a question.  In the Dragon Rage images, there are these cute little Asian dragons in some of the pictures.  Does anyone have any idea where they came from?  They don’t look like the Eastern Dragon but I could be wrong.
