    I'm glad you're okay. Situations like that are super scary & exhausting.

    Glad you're okay Cali.
    When I get too warm my nose starts to run clear fluid.
    I know instantly to get cooled off. Good to share so others will be carefull.

    Hi ME.

    I'm playing Gorby and shooting for glasnost and perestroika here at CC. Using audio and/or video posts will greatly reduce the misunderstandings that are common place when reading only the written word, with no other cues to interpret the actual intent of the person posting.

    I don't recommend doing what I did, PWI, but it's legal in my house, so

    (Posting While Intoxicated)

    It's very simple to record your post on your webcam and upload it to Youtube. Takes about 30 seconds to a minute for Youtube to make it ready for primetime after you click upload video.

    I do realize if this caught on it would be a major bummer to a select few here who thrive on the chaos, but we all must give up something to achieve harmony

    I think you've overheated enough for one summer young lady. You need one of those thingies you put around your neck to keep you cool. But then you wouldn't look 'cool,' and I know how important that is to your generation. When I was a kid, we had to walk 40 miles in a blizzard every day to school and back. With holes in our shoes. And when we got home, we went immediately to work until 11pm when we were served our gruel. Then we fell asleep on the sackcloth we called our bed, and got up next morning and did it all again. With big smiles on our dirty lil faces. We loved it, because our generation was masochistic, unlike the selfish generation you belong to.

    I know, right?

    that made me laugh...literally out loud!

    btw, i totally agree with the youtube thing, however, i think we oughta have a more private venue related to the site instead of flooding youtube with even more ultimately irrelevant videos, you know? of course you know, right?
