I've reached a new low...

So I was at an event for work a couple of weeks ago, and I spotted this woman across the room and spent about half the day puzzling over the fact that she looked like SOME celebrity whom I could not, for the life of me, place. I was about 10 seconds from leaning over and asking a coworker for an opinion (THANK GOODNESS I DID NOT, how embarrassing) when it hit me that this woman was the almost-certainly-non-fundie doppleganger of Miss Anna-Sofia Botkin herself! And then I knew it was time to admit that I had a problem...

I have a problem too. Went out on a casual date with a guy. We just held hands and watched TV, then he went home. It was a pleasant evening until I began to wonder if I was "guarding my heart" by only holding hands with him. :shock:

I have FJ to blame for that... :lol:

I wish it had been the lady herself - it would be nice to think that the Botkinettes escape through a bedroom window from time to time and steal out to attend arbitrary work events! After living with Geoff, any kind of event would probably be like a week in Ibiza.

I hear you. I have a serious fundie-ogling problem. I saw a big group of Chassidic Jews at the airport last weekend and I couldn't stop (discreetly) staring. In particular, we were behind a young married couple. The wife looked extremely young and was a tiny little thing. She covered her hair with a snood. The guy had to take off his hat to go through the scanners, revealing that he had on a kippah underneath. They were fascinating, but yeah, I know staring is rude and the airport isn't a zoo :(

I believe we all have our doubles. I further believe I have quintuples, as people seem to think they know me. Not always a pleasant experience.

I went to a junk store with a friend who for some reason needed to tell me that the proprietor was gay. I took one look at the fellow and said, 'i know you!' He replied politely that he disagreed. I puzzled over that for the length of the shopping trip, and eventually I remembered the person I actually know, who is also gay, who looked like him.

Got home, dug up my photos of my friend, and sure enough, he and the junker could be twins. (ETA, they could be brothers and not know about each other, I suppose!)

Funny story: When I saw ASB, she was posing as young women do, and I thought, "OMG, A McDonald!" :lol: It wasn't until E came into view that I said, "Oops, I mean, a Botkin."

They don't all look alike, but sometimes they meld together in one's thoughts. :D

I concur. Back when I was a late teen/early twenties and blond and had it going on I was stopped a lot by guys that had been over to the middle East. They said that I had a simi famous twin over there that was in the movies and often I would be asked for my autograph. I quickly found out that my twin was a porn star! I was horrified and would blush everytime someone brought it up. Having a look a like isn't fun when your twin is having more fun than you would prefer for yourself.

lol Kelsey! After that date I pondered "What would Michelle Dugger do?" I felt so naughty! It was only my 2nd date and I was already holding hands!

I hugged him tonight after we had a date at the bowling alley. What is this world coming to? :mrgreen:

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.
