Re: How often do you chew gum?

My jaw clicks but I chew it anyway. Not often..sometimes I'll just be in the checkout line and think OOOOO I haven't had Hubba Bubba in forever, lookee here! And if it's grape or strawberry or plain, yeah. ooo I like that sour kind too, the sour raspberry. I do half of a piece at a time so it lasts ...

Re: Heel spurs

Perfect, thanks! When I'm looking online at the inserts I always look at the side view to see how far up the arch goes, so I'll keep on that way. Funny, bc he inserts I got from the podiatrist have like, nothing, compared to my orthaheel flip flops.

Re: Heel spurs

I like something that pushes up against my arch. I don't know if it's supposed to be that way for PF or not but I like that feeling. Some of the inserts for PF barely have any arch it looks like-I like it high. Am hoping Younkers has the Dansko XP to try on or one of the two shoe stores.

Re: It's all about that bass

London is currently listening to it on youtube on the tv. A lyrics only version rather than the video. And she thinks it's about band instruments.

The music reminds me of pin up girls. Those big curls and red lips and polka dots. Fun. I like that.

Re: Why is PS slower than 10 yrs ago?

I thought part of it had to do w/the..irritation (don't know what else to call it-frustration?) of how things converged when we made the cross over.

Re: Heel spurs

I will look for the liniment, thanks MZ!

Will have to do some checking to see where the Dansko clogs can be found around here that I'd be able to try on w/out having to drive a couple hours. One of the pitfalls of bumpkinville.

Re: Nasal surgery, anyone care to share their experience?

JD had work done in...2007 I think. Deviated septum so he snored. Being a guy, things were "so" much worse for him during recovery of course, you know how that works.

Sometimes people are ignored, or lit into like they're the antichrist..kinda takes some of the fun out of it. I've gotten some new stuff I've not posted on here, and have sold some things in the meantime that I bought and likewise never posted.

Re: It's all about that bass

Well it's not nice to call people the N word.

Re: It's all about that bass

I'm guessing b/c of the term skinny bitches and that it is degrading to women? B/c the song is being touted as something that tells women to be proud of who they are and what they look like and then turns around and calls some women skinny bitches? Cuz it's not nice to call people names?

Re: When do you get your flu vaccine?

As one of the "wimps" who goes for the mist rather than the shot, let's not gloss over the fact that those who chose the mist are still being vaccinated.

Re: When do you get your flu vaccine?

We started doing the mist b/c the kids cried about the shots. JD and I both feel like flu shot stings worse than others for whatever reason. Thicker liquid? I was told it is effective faster than the shot and protects against 1 more strain than the shot.

Re: When do you get your flu vaccine?

We get the flu mist every year, usually about this time. Which reminds me, I need to make appts!

ETA I think it's funny the amount of people who are death on not vaccinating your kids but meh on not vaccinating for flu. Herd immunity isn't selective, I'm pretty sure. Like it doesn't count for flu?
