    Is the title number in Morse code? :huh:

    Good thing some people use arabic and Roman numerals or we'd have a hard time getting the numbers right.

    "Don't expect others to convert it for you."

    You could have done better Cutlass. I'm guessing it thread number 78.

    at work, one of the employee, a very effective and prestigious worker but her over sensitive and over thinking personalities turn out as a problem to her relationship with her manager and coworker. I suppose to maintain and guide her but without telling the core of the problem because it creates more trouble than solution, my strategy is about to talk about general things and give her tips here and that related with her current problem.

    But as soon as it is started, Oh my God, she talking without stop about everything, her family problem, this that those, after every 10 min of her monologue I give my bits for 20 second before she interrupted and responds to my bit with another 10 min of talking. After 1.5 hour of talking, I feel like I want to explode, it is really a torture, even though as an HR I know that she is actually my client, but I need to shorten her talk and start to interrupted in order to deliver my bits, she feels bit unease about it and I told her that I understand her problem is so severe even listening to it makes me want to explode and suggest to her to consider another thinking pattern/perspective. After the conversation, she left me and I feel really devastated by the conversation, not only her problem is quite severe and the information that she gave me also too personal and horror to listen (I don't know if she exaggerates it or the reality is really like that), but also her monologue of terror for 1.5 hour is quite devastating.

    Man, really I'm so tired psychologically.

    Weather forecaster really blew it yesterday. I went to work wearing shorts, because they told me it would be warm. It never got warm. :mad:

    I pulled a muscle in my next last Sunday, so 9 days ago? It got so bad Saturday night I couldn't sleep and it felt like someone stabbed my in the neck with a pen. I finally went to the dr, got some muscle relaxers and they said no weight lifting until it's better and it could be months. Ugh. They called it neck spasms officially. Muscle relaxers are weak sauce btw. Should've given me vicodin or oxy.

    My neck was also in pain with headache, I went to physiotherapist and my therapist told me I had spasm, I get it from a static and frequent movement both from the office job and boxing workout, I need to get back there once every 2 day, which I'm not going back there, once in two day is too much.

    One day I get huge headache, this time I tried a traditional massager that my friend recommend to me, and the massager come to my house and massage me for 3 hours, and amazingly the headache is gone and never comes back until now, I feel lucky I can find the right (and freaking cheap) massager.

    I hope you get well soon, because months is too long to hold. It makes you out from your work out flow.

    edit: follow the doctor instruction though, and get well soon.

    Yeah mine is giving me headaches too. Maybe I should try a massage but I typically hate them. I'm ticklish and don't like being touched. I might need a knot worked out though. And they said up to a couple months, it could be all good to go but next week. I doubt it though since it still hurts at times even on these pills lol. In the meantime I'm focusing on my cardio. Jogged 4 miles yesterday.

    The problem with massager is you should find the correct one, because it can makes thing worse. I get 6 days a week office job, and my boss is such a generous person in the context of money (income, taking debt, bonus, he throw everything), however he is stingy in regards to office hour and can easily disturb if me periodically asking permission from the job to go to therapist. If I can get that once in 2 day therapy I will do it, but the consequences can be unpleasant for me. Do your doctor recommend you to go to physiotherapist? Because it really helps.

    I did not see a single snowflake last winter.
    (I did see snow on the hills about twenty miles away but I did not go for a visit)

    It's supposed to snow here tomorrow night cus we're getting another bomb cyclone or something. I didn't even know what that phrase meant until two months ago.

    I tried to be healthy and slathered my burger in dijon mustard instead of ketchup cus it only has 5 calories per serving! But that was before I noticed a serving of dijon is a teaspoon while a serving of ketchup is a tablespoon so the calorie difference is really only like 10 total instead of 40 or so I thought I was getting. Misleading labeling imo, who the hell only eats a teaspoon of any condiment?

    That's funny, IIRC you're in Indiana or Illinois right? I've known about "bomb cyclones" for a while but only because we had a "bomb cyclone" nor'easter like five years ago.

    Yep I've been running into the same problem when trying to compare the sodium content of various salad dressings. Different serving size = comparisons are a headache
