It's the same way with black men: they're feared and suspected simply for being who they are, and, that being the case, there's nothing they can do about it. "DWB" is American slang for "driving while black": see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Driving_while_black
. . . all times I have enjoyed
Greatly, have suffered greatly, both with those
That loved me, and alone.

Yeah but everyone can't be dangerous. You have to be realistic

To be fair, they have no way of knowing which category you fall into, or that your dog's name is Honey. I mean, nefarious people can use dogs for their nefariousness or to avoid suspicion, but they probably don't name their dogs honey (:

And people do get a bit suspicious of people sitting in their car for some reason, I get some funny looks too. Like I must be there to case the joint, or sell drugs or something.

Maybe it's the car...

It's tomorrow! Do I bake cookies, or sleep in?

I vote to sleep in...

My super stressful day (:

One of the ferrets attempted to pack herself, first in the eski and then in my towel bag, but she was discovered.

I think they think I'm hiding something from them, they get into *everything*.

Pan would love to have that type of stressful day :) . I thought ferrets were nefarious for getting into everything..

Step. Enjoy your onesies.... I couldn't pull it off...

A perfect Christmas.
Kids let us sleep in, playing with their Santa presents. Opened up our family presents by the tree then I went for a much needed 10km run.
Got the food sorted then went to the in laws where we’ve had a feast and the kids are all happy playing with balls and in the trampoline outside. The sun is shining, we’re all in summer holiday mode and heading to the beach tonight for holidays.
Can’t get more Australian Christmas than that.
Merry Christmas to you all! Thankyou all you for support over the year. You’re all amazing and I appreciate you all so much.
You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.

Perfect Christmas here too. :) Just woke up, wanted to sleep in but brain is addicted to caffeine at a certain hour.

But now I'm sick :D lol Not big horrible flu, just mild. Headaches, bodyaches and the sneezes.

This week have a bunch of family and friend gatherings, there's no diet that can withstand that many brunches, dinners and lunches. :? Will lose a bunch of my weight loss progress, but that's the holidays for you. Maybe ask pdoc to only do bloodwork after a while, it's scheduled to January.

And yeah.. we had to salvage all the sweets in put them in the car. Couldn't leave them out in the open during the night because, one, my oldest cat has become a sweet tooth with old age and decided to attack the "dreams" ones while we were eating dinner (cats can't eat sugar, really bad for them), and then we put them in the kitchen and ants started crawling in line lol It's like all the animals in the world know it's Christmas

Oh man... AG, my ginger madcat has a sweet tooth too. Can't leave anything out overnight... And ants... :evil: :o :evil:

Glad you had a good day, Jemane you've weathered an awful lot of Family this year.

Shawn, i guess your day has just started. Good luck! I'll be popping I'm occasionally over the next few hours if anyone wants a friendly ear.

Going to try to make... Sort of kebab substitute... can't get *proper* kebabs with shaved meat up here, and my favourite kebab place uses a Turkish bread that's very like foccacia... So I'm going to try a very culturally misappropriated version using pulled beef. My mouth is watering, I hope it isn't disappointed.

I know right? They infested my mom's sugar holding thingy, so I got a big jar with vaccuum to put the sugar in, they don't know it's there yet.

I'll be around today too, there's not much to do except eat and I don't feel too well to eat too much. We're not going anywhere, mom's friend is stressed over having too many people and me and my mom don't feel well, either physically or with causing more stress to him.

Shawn you can spend the day on your phone talking to us and just ignore everyone there :)

I very dislike ants.

The kittenthing has discovered trees. The dog didn't wipe his bum this morning, so he's been locked outside all day and just got an overdue clipping. Now he needs a nice cleansing bath, and some... airing out. Guess he's going to need crutching regularly D:

Also, hair cut = instant weight loss. He's gone from looking like a pudgy, waddling over-indulged (he's not) puppy, to as sleek as anything.

Dinner was DELICIOUS.
I turned the oven on to cook, that's not very Aussie of me... >.>

:lol: Stray cats here in the neighbourhood are always on top of trees, they escape from each other that way too, very not clever of them because the other one just waits it out :lol:

Kittens discovering things is always awesome, not Christmas trees though (ornaments broken and one clothy mushroom missing - I decorated my tree with hallucinogenic mushrooms :lol:

I'd ask for you to share your dinner, but food is the furthest thing from my mind at the moment. There are still lots of sweets, they're in a closed box inside a bag inside another bag on the dinning table, feel free to come on over. Can't pick you up from the airport because massive headache *auch*

You know you don't *have* to eat all that sticky heavy stuff, right?

I can't encourage you, I feel like I've overeaten just looking at your photo :lol:

How's the headache?

I took an iboprufen.. it was really aching, all good now. Might've been sugar overdose, given I no longer eat sugar and this is an exception of course.

Don't worry though, my mom is eating most of it. I just ate a slice of cake. Thing is, we're sitting by the table, food is right there, takes an enormous amount of self control just not to pick a piece here and there. By the end of the day, you're 4kg heavier :lol: I weighed myself before eating now and actually only gained half a kilo from yesterday (1lb for you outkast nonmetric folks).

Oh! Am I late?

I'm so happy to be included, would it be rude if I'm not very hungry, and just nibble at the edges?

I'm going to go and find some nice crostoli tomorrow (they look just like one of your fried pastry things, but they're Italian) just so I can pretend I was there :P

Ahah sure :) eat just a bite of each.

Ok that's it. I can't eat anything else, feel like I'm overdosing on food. My mom wants to have lunch and dinner, for fuck sake :cry: hunger strike

Oh dear. She must be feeling better? Perhaps her appetite is recuperative.

:lol:
I thought her appetite might be recuperative, not her diet. It's not her body's fault if she's going to poison it instead of feed it.

Don't eat. Drink water. Have a noice day. Time for lights out here <3

I made it through last night only wanted to walk out for about fifteen minutes but I didn't and I survived in one piece. Now comes the hard one people in my house.. yippee. Took my anxiety pill so hope that helps today..Took one last night maybe that's why it went ok. Only half an hour left. Should get dressed and start cooking soon...

Everyone have a good day....
