There’s a slim possibility that today will be a cake day (aka a day to celebrate an indictment).
Perhaps not an indictment, but maybe something to celebrate?
Because there is some news.
Weisselberg about to flip?
— Jack E. Smith ⚖️ (@7Veritas4) March 30, 2023
According to the Jack podcast, and others, if someone withdraws from a joint counsel agreement, or if someone fires their Trump-funded attorney, that’s a usually a good indication that they are about to flip.
UPDATE: unable to confirm the lawyers were fired. Only able to confirm they no longer represent him.
— Mueller, She Wrote (@MuellerSheWrote) March 30, 2023
So maybe Weisselberg is the “maybe one more witness” that was being discussed a few days ago?
Wow. Offhand hard to think of a better explanation. And yes it does square, with all of the puzzling data. https://t.co/YA3sFU74Lk

And here’s a bonus pic of my little Henry.
No, I don’t think Henry was experimenting with hair dye while I was out. I think one of the kitties must have been puking and Henry ran over to “help”. sigh.
Update: Wow, in the 10 minutes it took to roll out the pie crust I had chilled in the fridge, there is more breaking news.
New report from CNN on Weisselberg’s attorney switch, confirming @Jose_Pagliery’s story. CNN reports:
(1) Weisselberg’s new attorney is being paid by Trump Org.
(2) There is “no indication” that Weisselberg is cooperating with Manhattan prosecutors. https://t.co/ctLK7UkwAH pic.twitter.com/SBwzlAKRP6
— Anna Bower (@AnnaBower) March 30, 2023
Trump org. fired the attorney and hired one more loyal to the Don.!
There is no good news.
Was just verifying the same. Reporting is Trumpworld is tightening their own screws on Weisselberg.
According to Mueller this is potentially good news, but cases like this take a while
BREAKING: The Manhattan DA has also been investigating the Karen McDougal catch and kill scheme. This bolsters my speculation that he’s investigating a pattern of be
Oh cat puke! Num num!
Five dogs and three cats later I am way to familiar with this scenario.
@JPL: The good news is that the Manhattan DA has a strong enough case to put it before a Grand Jury even without Weisselberg’s cooperation.
Isn’t that how the American Pie series got it’s name? I’ve seen none of them. I feel … missing out on such “culture”.
For those interested in baking
Dorie Greenspan from xoxoDorie Newsletter <[email protected]
She will send a newsletter to you email account. I don’t bake often, but I enjoy looking at her creations.
I’m thinking appropriate cake for Indictment Day is Tiramisu (the Lady Fingers ingredient thing) but I’m blanking on the right pie for a Trump almost indictment. Hmmmm.
@JPL: Do you post from a phone, a tablet or a computer?
I have a theory that the double posts are only from people on phones. Hoping to test that theory with information.
Geez, I wrote the post, and in the less than 10 minutes it took me to roll out the pie crust I had in the fridge, all hell breaks loose with news.
For anyone interested:
Day 1 of Septoplasty/Turbinate Reduction recovery:
After a fairly brutal first 8 hours, where I felt like I had taken a right upper-cut from Mike Tyson in his prime (my whole FACE felt shattered), now the pain is mostly just confined to my nose, which is still a drippy mess, but is otherwise fine. But the good news is that my nasal passage now seems aligned and last night was the first time in over a decade when I didn’t wake up with excruciating compression of one nostril, multiple times throughout the night (caused by turbinate inflammation). YAY!!!!
It sucks not being able to blow my nose (you gotta just let it drip) but the only congestion I have now is all stuff that will pass in a few days or weeks and the main crux of the problem seems to have been fixed. and I am THRILLED about that!
Everyone at the doctor’s office and the outpatient center were super nice and professional and I even got sent into anesthetic nirvana by a lovely older Black woman who was very nice and had a lot of style with her lovely African head wrap. Always love seeing Black doctors reach such prestigious positions and I knew I was in very good hands
Now I just gotta rest for a week or so and let everything heal.
Thanks to all the people here who encouraged me to go ahead with the surgery. I definitely think it was the right decision, though the recovery will be a drag.
Yesterday in Jefferson City there was a demonstration on the capitol grounds for trans rights and against anti-trans legislation (SB39 and SB 49). At the point where the first speaker addressed the crowd loud music came blaring out an open office window from the southeast front of the building. I started photographing the individuals at the open windows (400 mm, full frame camera) as did others. As they noticed the photographers, to a person, they backed away from the windows, with most closing them.
The courage of their convictions
Ladies and gentlemen, I present your right wingnut controlled Missouri General Assembly.
@Dangerman: I made homemade Tiramisu once. That is also the number of times I will have made homemade Tiramisu in my lifetime.
Very yummy, but it was a TON of work.
Jim, Foolish Literalist
good news? bad news? I don’t know. Could be read as th trump camp being scared
maybe sometime commenter LAO will weigh in
@WaterGirl: HP if that helps. An inexpensive laptop.
@Dangerman: The image should be of a 3-inch mushroom (according to Stormy Daniels) behind bars, lol
@JPL: Tablet or computer? If a tablet, an older model?
@WaterGirl: What am I missing? I see no news.
Is Shoo Fly pie a thing? Doesn’t sound as appetizing calling it Shoo Shithead.
@WaterGirl: I updated my comment, but it is less than two years old. I’ll find the model and let you know.
@JPL: No need to check the model. Two years is plenty current. thanks
@Dangerman: What do you mean by I see no news?
Anonymous At Work
From prior comments, seems like Weisselberg’s new guy might have some RICO experience, which makes sense if the Manhattan DA can show a pattern of criminal behavior by those in the TO, such as illegal payments, cheating on taxes/income statements, etc. TO as a criminal enterprise is a heavy initial lift but rolls downhill fast.
My hope is that we whittle down the pundit class whose main job in today’s America is idle speculation. It seems the main good coming from it is out of Water Girl’s oven.
24/7 Infotainment is horribly detrimental to creating an informed populace. I know that’s not the current goal of the media…but sometimes it seems we were better informed by 3 channels that signed off at 11 pm.
Hear no news, see no news, speak no news.
@WaterGirl: I am on Windows 11 now and I did that update a few months ago.
I see three newses!
It’s never good news when the news article starts with “A Federal judge in Texas . . .” Link
So the do-over has begun.
WG I see the same tweet thrice. Did you mean to embed three different ones?
Also, this doesn’t feel like positive news? Sounds like the opposite to me.
As I understand it, when you are an attorney, you have to represent your client above all else, regardless of who is paying for the attorney.
So wouldn’t these new attorneys be on shaky ground if they were hired because the previous attorney was “representing Weisselberg too vigorously” ????
@Dangerman: Shoo Fly Pie is AWESOME. It’s basically a molasses crumb pie; you can adjust the gooeyness by adjusting the bake time (I like mine gooey). I’ve also turned it into muffins by adding some flour to the filling formula and (obviously) eliminating the pie crust.
@Alison Rose: Not sure what happened there. They were all supposed to be different. :-)
You are not forced to tweet what you don’t know or couldn’t possibly know. If you have to speculate about your speculation, maybe go have a beer instead.
@UncleEbeneezer: The kid had the same surgery, seemed to work pretty well. I think her recovery was pretty quick.
@Alison Rose: Well, it was positive news re: NY when I put up the post, but things took a turn.
He Jan 6 defendant who carried the tomahawk was found guilty on all charges, and I think that’s good news.
I also think that Trump appealing the executive privilege decision so quickly is good news. Since that has been litigated over and over, that should be handled lightning fast, without having to have testimony or briefings.
The puke on Henry’s head is not good news! Not quite sure of the best method for cleaning that off. Head under a faucet doesn’t seem like it would go well, and he just had a bath yesterday.
Weisselberg is only good news if you squint really hard and turn around 3 times. I suspect it’s an indication that W. was getting squishy and his previous attorney was supporting him. But we don’t have enough facts to be sure.
Just like a big time rasslin’ tag team: Lawyer 1 get tired, tags Lawyer 2, who grabs folding chair and climbs through the ropes into the ring. The one thing all have in common: spandex.
@🐾BillinGlendaleCA: How long did your bloody-drip nose last? It’s only day one, but it’s driving me nuts!! (especially since I thought it was improving as of this morning)
@narya: Sort of like pecan pie without the pecans?
@WaterGirl: Weisselberg flipping would be great, but I think the McDougal/Conspiracy news is pretty good too.
@Michael Bersin: Sometimes the old-fahioned equipment is be😁
@sab: Hmmm . . . not really? It has molasses, but no corn syrup in it; I’d have to find my mother’s recipe. If you don’t go for gooey, then you have a molasses-flavored moist cake-like filling with crumbs on top. It also rises higher than pecan pie; ISTR that it includes baking soda as leavening.
David 🌈 ☘The Establishment☘🌈 Koch
And we say hello to the 142nd season of baseball – las Grandes Ligas 🥎🦇
@narya: I forgot about the crumb cake aspect.
@UncleEbeneezer: I agree! I’d rather see the wimminz bring down Don than his sleezy accountants and lawyers.
@UncleEbeneezer: Wasn’t me, but my step-daughter.
@sab: It’s quite good, but only if you really like molasses. I grew up in NW NJ, so close enough to Lancaster PA for it to “travel” as a recipe, but I’ve never encountered it elsewhere. I think of it as an “old” recipe, because it’s really not fancy, and you can’t do much to fancy it up.
@Scout211: So what happens now for the ACA? Any pundits with hints?
JD Vance wants a bill to declare English our official language. Like that is actually a problem anywhere in the US. Everyone after the immigrating generation is primarily English speaking. My nephews all pretend they don’t know any Chinese.
@narya: Doesn’t it have alternative names in Pennsylvania Deutsch?
ETA I am more a fan of corn syrup than molasses. Midwestern tastes I guess.
@Dangerman: a puzzle! For an indictment, I would go with John Scalzi’s schadenfreude pie, but for not-yet-indicted, I have no suggestions.
Around our customers, I pretend I don’t know any English.
Boilerplate reminder that the only reason people thought Trump would be indicted on a Tuesday a few weeks ago is that Trump said so.
I think it likely that he will eventually be indicted on several things, and that careful prosecutors will not adjust their timetables based on the latest rage-tweets.
@Gravenstone: @Jim, Foolish Literalist: @Anonymous At Work: sure does sound like Trumpian loyalty. “He’s a threat, gotta make sure he doesn’t flip on me. And he’s in prison anyway so fuckem.”
@WaterGirl: yeah in theory. But if it’s otherwise, who’s gonna prove it? And perhaps I’m being unfair, but when it comes to Trump’s lawyers, I’m kinda guessing they might be willing to shade things occasionally.
It’s actually a cherry galette with a buttermilk cornmeal crust. Definitely not the prettiest ever, but it should be good.
I hope everything that splattered while it was baking comes off my beautiful pan.
@bbleh: It sounds like the previous lawyer for W. had represented him for a long time, so there was reason to expect loyalty to the client.
So like the young woman who testified before the Jan 6 committee, I think it would take W. (if he was pressured against his own interests) to testify to that fact before there could be consequences for the more Trumpy attorney.
I am exceedingly happy for you and wish you many decades of uneventful breathing. Congratulations!
@sab: Shoofly pie. :-) More seriously, that name is the PA Dutch name, I believe.
@🐾BillinGlendaleCA: In Ohio our bank used to have Polish as an alternative choice of language
My other bank has Spanish. But English is always the default.
The Raw Story links to the WSJ’s report – which needs a subscription to read. The Raw Story article is pretty in-depth, though:
@WaterGirl: Galettes are the best–they aren’t supposed to be “pretty,” and they’re so much less fussy than Pie (IMHO).
Okay, so…I have always believed Newsom when he’s said he is not running for president in 2024, especially since he told the Biden admin that he isn’t.
Except he just launched a PAC.
What’s up, Gavin? I suppose this could be looking ahead to 2028, but like…weird.
Nicholas Bagley has a good thread on Twitter. Basically this takes down the free coverage of preventative services mandate based on recommendation of the HHS preventive task force for any standards the task force recommended after 2010.
This is not good, in fact it is a bad, stupid ruling, but it does not threaten the whole ACA like the three previous cases did.
Well, guidance I got for cleaning vomit stains from carpeting is distilled vinegar and a brush. Doubt Henry would appreciate that.
@Sure Lurkalot: This would be both/and. Cohen is absolutely key to all of this too.
@Gravenstone: I haven’t washed my pitmix since we got her three years ago, I suppose she is due for a wash.
The shepherds and labs always got semi-annual baths when their coats blew. Pitts hardly shed at all.
@🐾BillinGlendaleCA: Whoops I misread. I blame the acetaminophen.
@WaterGirl: Re Henry’s head: baby wipes work great for puke and other smelly cleaning ;D
@Alison Rose: He has lapses in judgment sometimes. He did marry Kimberley Guilfoyle, after all.
ETA He needs to remember that a lot of us not in California only know that about him.
@sab: Aw, I think we can stop ragging him over that by now. She was a completely different person back then. They did an interview together (with Charlie Rose, ugh) and while they discussed the fact that they did have some political differences, she was nothing at all like the far right kook she is now. She came across centrist and sane.
But also, he did ditch her ass and traded way up with Jen, so there’s that.
Looks like wingnut judge blew a huge hole in the ACA again:
Basically insurers are no longer required to cover preventative care. He’s done this kind of thing before, no feel for how likely this is to stand given current SCOTUS.
@Alison Rose: He needs to wait a few years for us to forget her.
@Alison Rose: I think Newsome’s new PAC can give money to other candidates and other PACs.
@StringOnAStick: Most of the reports are saying that the Biden Administration will “likely” appeal this ruling. I don’t think any formal announcement has been made yet on an appeal. The ruling was just announced today. I hope they appeal this and ask the Circuit Court for an emergency stay.
@Geminid: That makes sense. Making himself a national rather than regional player.
@Matt McIrvin: @Scout211: alas it’s the 5th Circuit, so ain’t no slam dunk.
And this is the same judge who some years ago said the entire ACA was unconstitutional, which went all the way to the SC. And then he later took aim at HIV treatment. And now he’s doing this based particularly on prescribing “abortifacients.”
So yeah, a wingnut waging culture-war and dressing it up in (flimsy) Constitutional argument. Oughta get slammed, but with the 5CA and the Alito Court, who knows?
Does that mean Republicans will have to learn to speak it correctly?
@sab: They divorced 17 years ago. Give it a rest. I’m sure you banged some questionable people yourself.
@Geminid: True, and that’s what I assume it’s mainly about. It’s just that it doesn’t completely come across as someone with no national aspirations, you know? :)
@Chyron HR: No. We will have to learn their version. Dog whistles included.
@Chyron HR: No. Remember that rules are for other people — in this case dusky foreigners and ‘marque el dos’ — not for them.
@Alison Rose: My first husband was awful. Why I didn’t get a selfie with Al Franken back when he passed through town.
ETA I promise I will have forgotten it (Newsom’s marital history) later, but not in 2024.
According to a social media post several individuals at the demonstration made their way into the building (it’s on the Senate side of the building, the right wingnut majority gets their pick of the prime office real estate) stood outside the office knocked on the door every time they turned the music up.
The offices weren’t occupied by Democrats. There were Democratic members of the General Assembly who were at the demonstration in solidarity.
The social media report stated that the music coming from an office window was Shania Twain’s “I Feel Like a Woman” – this started when the MC at the start of the rally, a prominent Missouri drag queen, started speaking. I just heard indistinct loud music noise.
That this transpired is just another indication of the meanness and juvenile attitude of the right wingnut majority in the Missouri General Assembly.
Praying for your recovery.
@sab: It’s a very weird thing to remain hung up on about someone who you don’t know personally for this long. You’re saying if through some super bizarre chain of events, he ended up as the Dem nominee in 2024, you wouldn’t vote for him because he was married for a few years nearly two decades ago to a woman who many years later turned into a jackass? Okay. Cool. Smart.
Wow, just knocked on doors, no tomahawks or fire extinguishers or anything?!
@Alison Rose: PAC’s are unfortunately key to money in politics, and distribution thereof. I’m going to assume Newsome is smart enough to be using his position to ride the same money train they all are; no point in not arming yourself and your political associates as effectively as you can. I don’t think he’s going after Biden/Harris and he’s be insane to do that.
@Alison Rose: I would throw any possible dirt at a Democrat going after Biden in 2024. That is all I am saying. Beyond that I do not care about Newsom’s marital history.
ETA Otherwise there is a lot I like about Newsom. He started the whole gay marriage bandwagon rolling.
I’m amazed that anyone in Trump’s orbit is stupid enough to use a Trump-affliated lawyer. Not only are they clearly working on his behalf at your expense, they’re reputationally terrible at their jobs.
@narya: I am not a big “pie crust” person (just like I don’t care for most frosting) but this buttermilk cornmeal galette is SO GOOD, plus, it’s not on the top and the bottom so there’s just the right ratio of crust to fruit.
*I also use 50% more cherries because I love the filling when it’s not too sweet and not too goopy.
@Alison Rose: He could be announcing a PAC that he can use to fund other candidates and causes he cares about.
Maybe that’s the non-a-millionaire version of Pritker donating $1 million to school board elections?
@Jackie: I don’t have baby wipes but maybe a plastic glove and wet paper towels?
That screams rotating tag! Though of course I won’t put that one up, but it is a good one. (totally unrelated to who you said it too!)
@StringOnAStick: This is basically my thinking too. It just threw me a bit when I got the email. But he’s smarter than most people give him credit for.
MSNBC just saying extra security is being put up around the courthouse!, Maybe cake day yet!
In Chicago, Polish is often a third language on forms, or as an option on phone menus. Voting instruction sheets also have Mandarin, and what I take to be Hindi, Korean, and Tagalog.
@sab: Okay, but as I said, he specifically told Biden he isn’t running against him. So there’s no need to even bring up his past marriage, even as a joke. He’s done fantastic things for SF and now for CA, has a wonderful wife and children. So he made a choice that in hindsight wasn’t the best one. Big fucking deal.
@WaterGirl: I was not offended. She is right.
The right wingnut controlled (for the last 22 or so years) Missouri General Assembly has an interesting history of juvenile and questionable behavior that wouldn’t sit well if the folks they were supposed to represent back home knew about it. Some of the bad behavior does get to their constituents, most does not.
Part of the problem is that the capitol press corps, like those in many other states, is much smaller than they were over twenty years ago. The small local papers don’t send reporters to the capitol because their corporate owners don’t want to spend the money. The local papers do act as stenographers and publish the electeds’ “reports” on the session – nothing more than propaganda and self-serving grip and grins with district visitors to the capitol during session.
As a result, some number of legislators act like teenagers with unlimited cash and no supervision during the legislative session which lasts from January through to May.
The stuff I’ve heard from single sources would make your hair curl – and would certainly not please their self-righteous constituents at home.
Add this to their meanness and the power they wield over the less fortunate, you don’t come away with a positive view of the state of our state.
@bbleh: If he manages to dismantle ACA – by the time the election rolls around – people are going to find out that the GOP fucked around and that’s why their healthcare is utter shit.
Some of those folks they depend on for votes might have problems. But sure, please proceed.
I think by the time this election rolls around – the red states would have had some many shit bills in a number of states and they’ll be creating havoc and the ACA and you’re going to see all kinds of unintended consequences.
@Alison Rose: So why did you post your comment as if you were surprised he did this now? You raised the issue and I reacted.
ETA Without your comment I would have just assumed it takes a few years to get a pac up and running. You introduced the timing concern.
They are putting up extra security in the form of barriers around the Manhattan Court House.
I WANT CAKE.
Sure, but an unusually large percentage of Trump’s lawyers end up in legal trouble themselves.
@narya: I love Shoo Fly pie. I prefer it “dry” because I am such a foodie. /s
Yet, according to Popehat, it’s never RICO! :-( :-( :-(
@Another Scott: If the Grand Jury is sent home to start their vacation, then I’ll believe it. They have put up barriers before and nothing happened.
@Betty Cracker: Can I second or third that nomination?
@JPL: I will share my cherry galette!
@Eunicecycle: Supposedly, Bragg would notify trump and others charged, but not the public. The only way we will find out is if trump blabs which he will.
@Betty Cracker: Okay, I said the same thing. if you are nominating it, too, I could add that. Was that for real, or just being funny?
@UncleEbeneezer: I hope you can get through healing process with minimal pain and discomfort!
@WaterGirl: I mean. I put myself in that category, too. You look back and you’re like…damn, what were you thinking. Of course usually the problem was that you weren’t. LOL
@Alison Rose: If he is planning on running in 2024 ( as you hinted that you were suspecting) then I will speculate on whatever garbage is out there.
If you believe him re Biden, then your original comment was completely irresponsible and how dare you go after me. I don’t live anywhere near California and I trust local jackals to be honest.
Frankly, I admire you a lot and this thread has been a major disappointment.
Come on, it was the 1980’s! Everybody banged everybody!
Uninterrupted sleep is a wonderful thing, no? That’s how I felt on getting cpap after decades of apnea. Enjoy your naps!
@Betty Cracker: WOOHOO!
@sab: Okay, I’m not trying to get into some massive spat here. I DO believe him about 2024, but getting the email about the PAC just made me go “hmmm” for a moment, because it feels like a very “gonna run for president” kinda thing to do, no? As someone mentioned, it could also be about supporting other candidates, especially ones who don’t have as big a donor base as he commands. That makes sense. I was just thrown for a small loop at first because of the optics of such a move, that’s all. And I’ve often been annoyed that people still bring up his previous marriage this long after it ended. It’s petty and unimportant. But we don’t need to make this argument into something bigger than it is.
@UncleEbeneezer: So happy for you! I’ll bet you’ll feel like a million bucks soon because you will have uninterrupted sleep!
All the people who attended to me in the hospital (knee replacement) were so good to me. I was anxious about the surgery, but the people who took care of me were professional, kind and calming and that helped me immensely.
My sleep patterns are messed up – I can only sleep a few hours at a time, but I’m sure as my healing progresses, my sleep time will get better.
RICO is much like lupus in that respect. IYKYK
@UncleEbeneezer: I’m glad you were able to get the surgery you need; I’ve known others who have gotten this one and it was life changing. That you weren’t plugged up as usual last night while everything is still very swollen from the surgery is a very good sign!
Stick with the “no blow” warning, it matters a lot. I had an eardrum replaced and I know it was a sneeze I couldn’t suppress that made that not work out, and now I can’t snorkel and definitely never Scuba dive again because a part never attached. I can however blow bubbles out of my ear in shallow water for the amusement of others. It’s not as fun as it sounds.
@Alison Rose: Sorry. I agree.
WaterGirl – Henry has kind of a punk thing going on with that patch of fur. Think he’d like an earring?
@Betty Cracker: Added it as a rotating tag!
For the record, the 80s was not a good decade for me.
THEY INDICTED HIM!!!!!
New post up!
@Kathleen: I bet he would!
Nicole Wallace, off in partner-viewing land, sez the grand jury’s voting. Partner says the FTFNYT says they voted to indict! Felony indict!
@Quiltingfool: Sleep was weird for me for both my knee replacements, but it gets better especially once the acute pain from the surgery goes away. You aren’t that far out from surgery yet. As several of my cohort said, the first week absolutely sucks, the second is almost as bad but you can tell it is getting better, and the rest of the post surgery weeks have incremental progress that you can be positive about. The bad sleep period will pass…
@Bobby Thomson: If I had a million bucks for every faded skirt chaser who waxed poetic about how great the ’80’s were, I could have retired sooner. I think the players were a fairly small group and their stories have grown ever more embellished with time. I was making fun of that.
So wouldn’t these new attorneys be on shaky ground
Damn right they are. See Model Rules of Professional Conduct, Rule 1.8(f). If there are any further proceedings involving Weisselberg, the prosecutors can and should file a motion to disqualify. And the Appellate Department of the Supreme Court (which is responsible for attorney discipline) could initiate its own proceedings.
This shit is far too common, and the bar isn’t nearly aggressive enough in policing it.
@UncleEbeneezer: Sending you thoughts and kleenex. Here’s hoping for a swift recovery!
@rikyrah: Thanks :)
@stinger: Well there’s not much need for Kleenex because I can’t blow my nose and am not supposed to dab at it either. I have to use a gauze mustache to catch the drippings. But I appreciate the sentiment.
He got smacked around pretty rudely by the Supreme Court the last time.
bake your cake
MSNBC reporting it’s time for cake.
CNN Donald Trump NY grand jury votes to indict Trump, sources say
“A grand jury in Manhattan has voted to indict Donald Trump, according to three sources familiar with the matter – the first time in American history that a current or former president will face criminal charges…”
I blame it on the drink
Time to bake that cake!!
I’d say 2028. Unless he knows something about Biden that we don’t.
Chocolate sauerkraut cake is in the works. Frosting already made. !!!
What with the cake baking and all, I think we will have breakfast (hashbrowns, toast and coddled eggs) for dinner tonight.
And dog gets her fancy expensive canned dog food for dinner.
@WaterGirl: looks amazing!!
@UncleEbeneezer: Thank you for the update, glad to hear all went well. When Western medicine knows what to do, it is incredibly powerful stuff.
In my experience, recovery from surgery feels like it is taking forever but then it picks up steam. Just hang in there. (Though if anything feels amiss, don’t hesitate to call your surgeon, even if it’s two in the morning, that’s their job).
Yay. I just saw Alison Rose’s banging rotating tag.
@prostratedragon: My medical paperwork always has a page — the last one — with the same paragraph in many, many different languages. I don’t look that carefully but I think it is directions for applying for financial assistance.
I always have a moment of feeling proud that I live in a country so welcoming to so many that people from all over the world call Cincinnati home.
Then I toss the page into the recycling bin because that is one bit of clutter I can stay ahead of.
I knew I wasn’t going to like JD Vance as my Senator but I wasn’t expecting him to be a constant embarrassment.
@StringOnAStick: Ain’t that the truth!
