RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
The front page of reddit is flooded by Yanks probably complaining or lauding about their senators for selling it not selling them out.

I guess Reddit is dead for me again for another two days.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

Look at it again. The one on the right is clearly 'JENY'. The first letter has to be a J, and a capitol one at that. The next three are capitalized, including the Y. So if it was YENY, then how come the Y at the front is so different from the Y at the end? Because it's a J, that's why. They simply forgot the additional N in the middle, but you could conceivably spell Jenny as just Jeny, or even Jeni.

Is it a bit odd looking? Yeah, but I'd hazard a guess that the strokes are derived from the lowercase cursive J. Just don't dot the top and don't follow through completely with the line past the bottom of the J, and you can see how they did it all in fluid 2 strokes. Arguable more efficient than a more traditional J, as they didn't have to lift the marker between strokes. That's just their quick and dirty way of writing a capitol J, most likely derived from how they wrote the lower case cursive J.

Your probably right, but my interpretation is more fun. Big Grin Rolleyes

I won a $1000.00 on a scratch ticket... I'm going to get the money after work today. Big Grin

Unfortunately, I told my wife Facepalm ...she was very excited, I know in her mind she'll have already spent all the money before I even come home with it. Sadcryface

Probably on boring shit like clothes for the kids & groceries... Confused

I think I'll be lucky to have $20.00 left by the time she's done. Weeping

Did you get lost following the colored line around?

RE: What is your latest first world problem ?


My latest first world problem is the loss of Medicaid benefits. i am disabled, and have been on Disability for the last three years. When I turned 65 the powers that be transferred my case to Social Security, and my medical insurance went from Medicaid to Medicare with supplementary help from Medicaid. (Living on government disbursements can get really confusing!, but I shouldn't complain because at least I am getting something!) Because of my disability I have to see 6
specialists and a general practitioner, and each of my five doctors have prescribed at least two drugs as treatments. That is where Medicaid was helping me - even with Medicare and supplemental insurance plans, drugs cost more than my income. Now it looks like i will have to join the ranks of those who take half a dose in order to stretch my supply of meds and economize. Frankly, this prospect scares me. Right now I am busy digging out all possible potential sources of financial aid, but in the face of the current political and economic climate I do not have much hope.

Hah! You don't know how good you have it, being able to even consider an Ikea purchase. Some of us have to drive over an hour to reach an Ikea!

Why out here in the Boonies, we catch wind that someone is making an "Ikea Trip" and everyone submits their orders.

RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
So, I am getting Christmas cards ready to send (yeah...some people still do that) and writing some letters to include in said cards...not a form letter but actual personalized letters.

My dilemma...what's more festive - Janis Joplin or Jimi Hendrix stamps?

I am not going to the post office for Christmas stamps when I have plenty Janis and Jimi on hand.

Consider

RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
So we have an inspection coming up. Defacto has gone full fucking Bloc Commandant: room inspections, rants, nitpicking, the goddamn works.
It’s an inspection, so long as there aren’t new holes they don’t give a shit!
Besides we’ve had the same landlord for five or so years now right? Really think they’ll kick us out now?


Sorry that got ranty
