You might have a metal allergy. I had to stop wearing watches because if I wore one for longer than a day, the skin around my wrist would turn red and peel off. My girlfriend also has the same thing, so she can't wear jewelery, or else her skin cracks and bleeds.

I have that with anything that has nickel in it. Only my whole body breaks pout in hives in addition to the peeling, swelling, and cracking around the area of contact. But copper, silver, and gold are all okay. It's just nickel and possibly tin. But if it only does it part of the year, it's probably not an allergy.

Might be a low case of allergic reaction furthered by something else, like, you might be a little allergic to pollen also, and when it is pollen time, it worsens the other reaction.

Allergies are annoying and can be nasty, I´ve luckily only got a light allergy to some pollen (hazel, I think).

The old Dragon and Dungeon mags I ordered during the sale from Paizo got lost in the mail... :(

Now I may not ever complete my collection. :( x2

~winces~ Have you talked to Cosmo? Maybe he can help you.


Oooh, dude that sucks. Sharoth is right. Try talking to customer service. They've done some awesome things for people in the past. And make sure they have your correct address on file.


1. Talk to Post Office.
2. Talk to Cosmo.

Maybe things will turn out ok, Moorluck.

I'm allergic to silver. Thus I took into consideration that possibility when getting the initial piercing and jewelry. The jewelry is high-grade steel, something I've checked with to ensure I'm not allergic to. Steel glasses, steel jewelry, steel piercings (in different locations with much better results).

It's just silver. Can't even eat with silver utensils, it burns my hands. I wore a silver ring for a while (masochistic engagement ring) and still have the ring-shaped scar seven months after removing it. Nickel, iron, copper, gold, platinum, tin, alloys, not a problem.

I don't think I'm a were...

It's been pretty warm lately here, and our AC has been out since Saturday. The guy finally came and fixed it yesterday morning, and everything was working great until some severe storms passed through a few hours later. Now, we have no power and the energy company says it won't be back until sometime very early Sunday. Minor, in the overall scheme of things, but annoying just the same. And I'm not happy with the amount of food we'll probably lose ...

I think thats the most annoying part, all the stuff you have to throw out. Why so long till power gets back on?

It ended up not being quite that long (we got it back Saturday early), but I think it was simply a matter of number of people w/o power vs. number of crews they had to work on it. Their estimates said something like 94,000 people were out. So, we really only ended up throwing out anything dairy and most of our raw chicken. So, it could have been worse, and I think we ended up getting off pretty lucky, after all.

Losing your job ten days after getting engaged and exactly a month before needing to move to a more expensive part of town to accommodate your fiancee's matriculation in grad school.

Ouch, congratulations and more ouch. That sucks Yoda. As someone in the other thread put it, lets hope it opens some doors and leads to better nicer things.

As they say, every silver lining has a cloud.

I just recently got a job as a store closer at a local gas station / mini mart. This means that I have to deal with LOADS of COMPLETE F&!%ING MORONS EVERY NIGHT.

Case #1: Mistaken identity
We're a Sunoco station. This means that we only accept Sunoco cards. Every day, at least five people try to pay with Citgo, Mobil, BP, or Stewart's cards. Why? I don't know.

Case #2: Lost idiots
In the past two weeks, as many people have come in asking how to get to places that are not only nowhere near Ticonderoga, New York, but not even somewhere where Ticonderoga would be on their way. For example, one guy came in last night:
Dude: "Where am I?"
Me: "Ticonderoga."
Dude: "Is that in Vermont?" (this guy has New York plates on his car)
Me: "No. Where are you coming from?"
Dude: "Albany. How do you get to Rutland, Vermont?"
Me: "Well, you go back the way you came for about an hour, then take the turn you missed..."

Case #3: Conspiracy nuts
Some people don't take their receipts out of the gas pumps. So, when the next person comes up to pump their gas, they 1. assume that someone left their receipt, 2. throw out the erroneous receipt or take the erroneous receipt to me, and 3. continue on with their day. However, once in a blue moon, you get the guy who goes about it by 1. pumping their gas, 2. after pumping gas, noticing the receipt with the wrong total on it, and 3. assuming that the gas pump is trying to cheat him. We got two of those last week. Both of them were from Vermont. At least the people from Jersey who screw up trying to pump gas are generally nice morons...


Losing power last week during your vacation because of a narsty storm, and then wondering what to do with all of the food, etc. It didn't help that we were on this little drive with 3 families, 1 of which was not there. It also didn't help that near the top of the drive, a tree had been struck by lightning and pulled the cables down, so the power company ignored us for about 30 hours and then finally came along. Well, at least we got it back.

Hey, there's nothing worse than being lost, especially when the answer is "go back the way you came." I know what it's like driving upstate NY, and if someone has decided to play musical chairs with the signs, you could EASILY end up in another state- Vermont is a bit of a suprise, but not impossible.

I used to work for the toll bridge in Delaware Water Gap. I remember more than once people coming through looking for the Jersey Shore, loaded with kids and beach supplies. The fun part is twofold:

1) We're on the Pennsylvania side of the bridge. So they are driving FROM Jersey TO Pennsylvania. Instead of going east to the shore, they went west.

2) There's a town, a good 135 miles into Pennsylvania called, I kid you not, Jersey Shore. If they were rude when asking directions, I sent them there...

Some people seem to think Portland sucks.


~sighs~ Several things suck right now.

1 - I just had a fight with a friend over room mate issues. More specifically, his room mate issues. Unfortunatly, I also threw back in his face the room mate issues that I had while having his friend as a room mate. Note, this is something that I thought I had forgiven him for. Ug!

2 - I took the dog in for her shots last week and they said that she needs to get a growth removed from her mouth and have a broken tooth taken care of. Total estimated cost, $250 to $350 on top of the $230 vet bill (including 4 months Flea nad tick as well as Heartworm stuff.)

3 - I will eventually have to do some house repairs on both the kitchen and the front porch / carport. My guestimate on the cost $2000 on up.

3 - I have been on the 4 pm to midnight shift for over 3 years and I dislike it bunches. It should change soon, but this shift affect my depression and I tend to stagnate more than I like.

4 - My neck had been acting up after playing some City of Heroes for 3 hours a few days ago. It is finally starting to feel better.

5 - When I went to Atlanta a few weeks ago, my checkbook and digital camera got stolen. Luckly, the teller at the Downtown Atlanta BB & T caught it and phoned me. I got off easy. I just had to change my bank account and get new checks. Unfortunatly, I had not gotten my photos off the digital camera yet and thus I lost about 60+ photos from various stuff. Meh. Oh well. It could have been worse.

~sighs~ Sorry for venting.

Edited to add # 5 to the list.

Found out yesterday that my wife's cousin (a recovering heroin addict) OD'd on cocaine and prescription drugs. He's in the hospital with organ failure and low brain activity. We'll pray for the best, but there may not be much hope, as his heart had been stopped when the found him and they don't know how long. What makes it worse is that he and his father had just started getting their relationship back on track after a long estrangement.

Oh, Moorluck, shoot me an e-mail with the issues of Dragon that you have. I have a "few" duplicate issues and I might just bring them to you one weekend. My e-mail is in my profile, btw. I do wish you the best on getting those issues that are MIA.

In late March, we found a house that was for sale as a short sale. We started the ball rolling by making an offer. Little did we know that short sales are a roller coaster.

We are at 3.5 months now, and have extended the closing date 6 times. The problem is that there are 2 lienholders, and the 2nd one has gone back on their word once, upped the asking price, and is now delaying, delaying, delaying on approving the offer where they got 100% of what they said they HAD to have.

Add to this the expiration of our 5% interest rate on the loan we secured (which we are currently extending on a weekly basis to the tune of an extra $900 per week to the loan totals).

I thought we were getting pretty close this past week, but the seller suddenly got unmotivated, and didn't get right on the paperwork requests. So, we keep waiting. And waiting.

Probably going to start looking at other houses again.

My mom's family is from Jersey. Whenever they come down to visit, I make a big show of teaching them how to insert the nozzle into the car and pull the lever. I tell them "This is what we do in states that assume we're grown up enough to pump our own gas"

Okay, I got one. I went to the post office today to get my new ID b/c I passed my driver's licence. My parents took both sets of mail keys with them on vacation, so I needed proof that I do in fact domicile at said location. So I took my passport. On the way to town, I realized that Canadian passports don't have your address on them. I showed it to the lady at the post office anyway. She was actually pretty good about it, but the medical shears I ordered are still in transit.

No, I'm not from the city. I lived for a little while on the outskirts of Syracuse, NY, then the outskirts of Erie, PA, and now I live on the outskirts, of Ticonderoga, NY. I seem to be downsizing...

But yeah, some people need to learn how to read a friggin' map. We had a couple of people today drive in to the station and ask how to get to a road that was literally twenty feet away from the window. And on my way in, I almost got T-boned by a guy from Connecticut who apparently doesn't know what stoplights or turn signals are for.

You know what I hate? F*~%ing New York State income tax, which is steadily approaching nine percent. I worked twenty hours last week, not much, I know, but I should reasonably get more than NINETY DOLLARS. I eat one meal a day, and alternately live in my car and in my mother's basement. I have college tuition to pay. I SHOULDN'T BE PAYING SOME WELFARE LEECH OUT OF MY OWN F@%+ING POCKET.

I found out yesterday from my older brother that our younger brother has graduated from smoking pot to popping prescription pills. And then he likes to drink while on said pills. From what I gather he isn't picky about hat he's taking and will pop a few at a time. I'm worried that he is going to mix the wrong pill with alcohol and stop his heart....

Unfortunately he doesn't listen to anyone and thinks what he is doing is normal, and fun...stupid kid.

Maybe he's not too old for a smack on the back of the head from his big sister. :)

As someone who's had two sisters try (unsuccessfully, fortunately) to kill themselves, I know it's rough to see someone you love do something destructive.

First off, thanks to all for the warm wishes and prayers.

Unfortunately, my wife was informed yesterday that they were bringing in a priest and were then going to start unplugging her cousin. So, unless a miracle happens, it will only be a matter of time before he passes. Such a waste. He was a nice young kid, with a lot of potential.

Solnes - I'm sorry to hear that your younger brother seems to be going in a similar direction. In light of what my wife's family is going through, I'd urge you and your family to institute a policy I learned from a very large Master Chief - FtA or Foot to Ass. Feel free to use my wife's cousin as an example. He was only in his late 20s.

Again, thanks to all for your kind thoughts.

Hmmm, move here! No income tax, dirt cheap cost of living, and Texas women!

Trust me, other than for a few weeks in late September, early October (love when the leaves changed), I do not miss upstate NY one bit...

Don't do it, Mr. Shiny! It is a TRAP!!!

First off, thanks to all for the warm wishes and prayers.

Unfortunately, my wife was informed yesterday that they were bringing in a priest and were then going to start unplugging her cousin. So, unless a miracle happens, it will only be a matter of time before he passes. Such a waste. He was a nice young kid, with a lot of potential.

Solnes - I'm sorry to hear that your younger brother seems to be going in a similar direction. In light of what my wife's family is going through, I'd urge you and your family to institute a policy I learned from a very large Master Chief - FtA or Foot to Ass. Feel free to use my wife's cousin as an example. He was only in his late 20s.

Again, thanks to all for your kind thoughts.

I am sorry to hear that, Aberzombie. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

Well, got a call from the mother-in-law a little while ago - wife's cousin passed away at 11:15 last night. He was just 27 years old. We'll likely be flying down sometime in the next few days for the funeral.

What a waste....
