Day 53 of #FleaFest2012

April 17th, 2012 · No Comments · Lori, z. blacklist

It’s day 54 since the fleas in our apartment were treated Today, I caught ten in the homemade flea trap. I’ve grown weary of taking the vacuum canister to the trash dumpster on a daily basis. Today, after several days of similar, seeing that all the vacuumed fleas were dead–I dropped the minimal dust (when […]

Flea Fest 2012

March 23rd, 2012 · No Comments · Lori, projects, z. blacklist

We “inherited” some “roommates” with our move. Fleas. Yes, The Bitch (not her real name) who lived here before us had a flea infestation she didn’t report. So, instead of treating the concrete the minute she moved out, they were only able to treat the new carpet that would become ours. I’ve researched far more […]

TeleCheck Sucks

February 7th, 2012 · No Comments · Lori, z. blacklist

We have auto-draft for our rent. It’s convenient and saves us a bunch of hassle like remember which day is the 1st or which holiday impacts rent’s due date. Backstory [Stories that start like this are getting old.] Back in college, I bought some cute socks. My less-that-$10 check was returned by my bank for […]

Pre-existing Condition, My Ass

November 17th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Lori, z. blacklist

So, Emil (as primary on the insurance) gets a bill this week that the dentist wants the rest of the money for the bridge replacement. Insurance didn’t pay their part due to “a pre-existing condition….missing tooth”. I know this is a big “shock” to you all, but I’m seething. I know “receptionist” (in quotes and […]

Annual Holiday Pre-Rant

November 16th, 2011 · 2 Comments · Lori, z. blacklist

It’s a bit early, I know. But, this year, more than ever, I noticed Christmas (decor, music, sales, advertisements, and more) showing up mid-October with greater force than ever before. As you all know, I’d like to get through Hallowe’en before I see any of that. Thanksgiving, too. I can’t enjoy Christmas when it’s been […]

Put Up or Shut Up

September 26th, 2011 · No Comments · Lori, z. blacklist

With the support of another member (and some help from Emil), I volunteered to upgrade a website that was at least a decade old. Generally, pictures from 5 years ago were the most recent additions. (There are a couple of isolated exceptions.) The site can’t grow for the membership of the group in the HTML […]

The Dental Probrem

September 16th, 2011 · No Comments · Lori, z. blacklist

While the entire healthcare industry is a racket full of it’s own bullshit, I’m going to rant blog [1] today about the dental niche. The Dental Probrem[2] We pay for dental “insurance”. Apparently, the morons who designed this system don’t understand how insurance is supposed to work. Insurance is supposed to go like this: everyone […]

My Third Bridge

September 16th, 2011 · No Comments · Lori, z. blacklist

I have a bridge. It’s in the front of my mouth. It’s the nemesis to my smile….and a large reason why anyone rarely finds me on “that end” of a lens. This is the hell I’ve been through…through visit 1 of 2 for my 3rd bridge. As a kid, I went to an old-school dentist. […]

Discount Codes and Industry Ethics

June 23rd, 2011 · No Comments · Lori, z. blacklist

I can’t blog about this on my As You Wish sites, but oh how I’d love to! I’m facebook friends with a local industry professional. Her business is pretty well known in the wedding industry. She’s pricey. She “facebooked” this week about how the vacation deal she wanted to use fell through because “the code […]
