Lashing building supplies onto the car when the bungie cord lets go. As I explained to the optician later, if it wasn't for my glasses I would be in emergency with my eyeball in a paper cup. And this mornig I have to go into work so won't be able to use said building supplies.


THROW OUT THE BUNGIE CORDS. As you've just discovered, they are really bloody dangerous. My da's a builder, and insists that they're one of the most dangerous things on a construction site; bad enough that he's banned them from all his sites. Get yourself some ratchet straps instead.


Ratchet straps really are the way forward.

Definately, my dad suffered a bungee to the mouth once, it was a shocking sight when he came home with half his front tooth missing and blood all over his face (and a very swollen lip) Shocked

I too, am an advocate of ratchet straps (or some good ole 550 Cord and a couple of clove hitch knots...).  Bungee is only good for making FPS video games, and after Halo 3, even THAT is up for grabs!

Anyway, back on target:  Gah and s'etch-Doctor today.  I hate doctors.  Just being in the office raises my blood pressure, heart rate, and body temp.

Anyway, I'm going to try and catch some Zs, and ya know what, I may skip it today (it's a walk in clinic, as I dont have insurance, I do the "pay to play" method...) and go tomorrow.  Who knows, I may feel better by then anway.

Putzing around with something online which locks up my browser due to suddenly demanding way to much of the computer at once. So a two min process takes 10 mins and ultimately needs a Ctrl Alt Del. Whichshut out the draining program, which also means I loose everything I'd been doing.

Fine I'll go post some other things I've been needing to do in order that I can re organise my web presence and amp up my networking and getting myself out there as sort of product, creator, and marketing. Only the fragging site keeps giving me teasing admittance followed by error in loading messages.

GaaHHHH! Screw the net, I goin to bed.

So many projects I want to do, but not enough time to do it.

We (my wife and I) have our second child on the way and the first one is getting another room. So after work I eat, change into DIY-clothes and continue painting the room. I've got an hour and a half to do some painting, before our daughter is going to sleep. After that I can't work on the room, so I go downstairs in the garage to work on her bed. It used to be a beaten down bed, but I managed to fix it up. I still have to do the edges, finishing up and painting. My wife it due august 29th, but we want our daughter to get used to her new room, before the baby is born.

Besides that big project, I also have some projects in mind. Steampunk bike/trike/quadcycle (haven't decided in what form), model dirigible, steampunk watergun (started, but put on hold), Steampunk story (not much of a writer, but I have some good ideas for a story), Steampunk wardrobe suitable for a bicycle builder/rider, Steampunking my keyboard and mouse. Whilst writing this reply, a couple of ideas come to mind, but I'm trying to block them.

To many things, to little time! Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaah

Another GAH: Having to moisturise my tattoo every goddamn 5 minutes. I have dry skin anyway, but this is rediculous. Also, if one of the boys on my course offers to moisturise it for me with his own 'special brand' I swear to whatever Gods will listen that I will kill him.

Gah.

Thanks to you and subsequent posters, they are going in the bin. Not even going to keep them for camping because the temptation will be there to use them rather than run out and get some proper straps.

Have you considered a moisturised dressing? I would suggest going to your doctor as they can prescribe WEAPON STRENGTH MOISTURISER! Alternatively I find acraflex to be very good.

To complete this duality of pertinent advice; suggest to the "boys" (for they are not men) in question, that if they are in the business of selling snake oil, instead of trying to palm off the results; they should spend less time palming themselves. Thus nullifying their unfortunate surplus.

Gah.
I swear this is not a wind up. Get yourself to the local chemist and buy some Preparation H or some other cream for the same purpose (the ol' farmer giles) I have used it on my Tatts before, stops the itching and scabbing a treat.

Migraine is my Gah today.  Right behind the eyes.  

Had to take beta blockers for Migraine, used to get really bad buggers, starting with tunnel vision, vomiting and a feeling of some-one nailing a spike into my right eye. Not as bad as my niece, bless her, when one came on, she had the same symptoms as some-one having a stroke, one side of the body and her face just gave up and drooped, I feel you pain sir!

Now, as soon as I start getting wammy vision, with blind spots, a handfull of Nurofen usually nips it in the bud, ending up just a really bad headache.

Oh dear, I don't get them that bad, just an annoyance really, but they're not appreciated, most of all not when I'm in a lecture or (worse) immediately after I've come out of one.

Not sure if this helps you in any way Mr Harrison, the most common causes of a migraine can be down to diet. Cheese, Chocolate and for me it turned out to be Red Wine. Ive stopped drinking it and very rarely have one now, maybe 2 a year. Can also be hereditary. Keep a constant supply of painkillers in your pocket just in case Wink

But they are excellent as impromptue slingshots

Joking aside, ratchet straps are the best and hold much more securly, the only value in a bungee is to prevent a rattle as they won't keep a load restrained in an accident, and even then one of the elasticated nets is much better (after using ratchet straps to hold everything down of course)

I think in my case it could well be down to Monday's scheduling.  Seven hours of lectures (with maybe half an hour break in between) has, I have noticed, pretty often resulted in at the very least a bad headache.  Luckily I now have 4 weeks off!  Except I don't because in that time I have to write two essays and complete a set of architectural drawings... I think seven day working weeks week in, week out for the best part of three months also is playing a role.  I would say I need to throttle back a little here but it occurs to me that not only do I do seemingly precious little work as it is (only about 5-6 hours a day actually spent studying) but my coursemates are in the same situation and I don't hear them complaining.

Have you considered a moisturised dressing? I would suggest going to your doctor as they can prescribe WEAPON STRENGTH MOISTURISER! Alternatively I find acraflex to be very good.

To complete this duality of pertinent advice; suggest to the "boys" (for they are not men) in question, that if they are in the business of selling snake oil, instead of trying to palm off the results; they should spend less time palming themselves. Thus nullifying their unfortunate surplus.

On my new tattoos I use Bepanthan which is a nappy rash cream. If you fill your details in on their website, they send you free tubes of it Smiley

The best thing according to every tattooist (and hairy arsed biker) I know is E45.
I get it with a hint of sandlewood and it's done me proud for years.

Currently using E45 cream, and it's working well. Just a bit annoyed that it's a little itchy! Todays GAH is minor, and involves a bed full of big black flakes of dead skin and ink Tongue

My GAH is that my girlfriend is finally back for the holidays, and just as she returns my dad gets diagnosed with sleep apnoea, and as she lives a fair distance away and I can't drive yet I can probably count our meetings on one hand now...
The irony is; my dad isn't sleepy during the day and has no problems other than a slight (and according to the doctor it is only just below the 'limit') drop in O2 sats at night. Of course it will take many many months to get referral and such before the DVLA can even begin to look at giving his license back during which time we'll have to make do with transport and getting us all to work/school/uni somehow. GAH.

The Flu, quack doctors that seem to think antibiotics can cure a VIRIUS, dehydration, and lack of sleep.

Ladies and Gents, I give you my gaaaahs.  With that, even though it's half past nine in the morn, I am laying my happy ass BACK down, and going to TRY and sleep untill quarter of four this afternoon.  At which time I shall rouse myself proper, don my work threads, and go to the docks for another lovely evening of being the store's bitch.

Hooray for modern medicien!  Hooray for insomnia!  And HOOFRIGGINRAY for being overworked at a dead end job that barely pays the friggin bills. 

At least I HAVE a job, Saints be Praised, so I guess that's something, aye?
