    Damn damn damn damn.

    I think something from the holiday party last night has ruined my guts. I have been barfing and engaging in other toilet activities for the past hour. I'm calling in sick as the only manager and one of the only two librarians on duty two days before a holiday.

    There is absolutely no possibility of me not going to work tomorrow, there's nobody there. I absolutely need to get my intestines right with God. Is Pepto Bismol still a thing, or is that one of those hydrogen peroxide situations that only make matters worse?

    Pepto Bismol is a thing. Also live culture yogurt can help settle your guts when they're a-roilin', I've found.

    If you’re still actively expelling things out both ends you may need immodium AD to settle things down. Pepto works mainly if you’re barfing or have acid indigestion. Also load up on electrolyte sports drinks and crackers for at least the next 48 hours to ensure you’re not getting totally dehydrated too.

    The only cautionary thing I'd say about immodium is that it can end up locking you up for days and causing problems in the other direction, so use it as a last resort.

    Sports drinks is pro advice. When I was having a gastric fire sale last year, a 50/50 mix of gatorade and pedialyte kept me going.

    Guides in SA told me that drinking an infusion made from zebra dung is a good way to sort your guts out. So you know, there's an option.

    Did you actively mix them, or like took turns?
    Curious how that tasted, which I realize is not the point of medicine.

    Mixed them together - pedialyte straight is pretty vile, it's quite viscous and salty.

    Okay, I got a guy who can get me okapi dung. Is that like half as good, or just nothing?

  • Brovid HasselsmofBrovid Hasselsmof [Growling historic on the fury road] Registered User regular
    I think okapi are ruminants so it might not work the same, zebras are hindgut fermenters so they'll have different gut flora, which I assume is what has the desired antipoopchaos effect.

    Tomorrow is my last normal work day in 2019. Then Christmas Eve we have a work breakfast and entertainment and games and such but I'll try to sneak out some time after breakfast. Then it's holidays until January 6th 8-)

    It goes without saying but I am extremely looking forward to time off.

    Uh. Are you sure it's food poisoning? Because closing the library is probably definitely a better option than interacting with the public while fighting norovirus.

    Especially right before Christmas, when people are traveling.

    My desk mate who I've sat next to since day one and have worked on lots of projects with and am good friends with will be leaving, I found out by accident and no one else knows apart from the most high up.

    It kind of sucks massively! Apparently he was offered a very good salary. I can't help think where he's going to won't be the best decision, and change isn't easy, but it is what it is.

    It must be odd to get the holidays off. There was a sarcastic comment I heard from one of the people my father played baseball with "I fought a war so the banks could have a day off" I really did not see his side until much later
    Still I feel I am going to see if I can borrow 10 from someone tonight so I can get my id

    I am definitely mentioning zebra dung as an alternative next time someone at work gets a runny gut.

    In other news, I'm apparently tired enough that I walked into a wall on the way out today. And stumbled in whatever the thing at the bottom of doors is called on the way into the wardrobe. So I'm happy I have tomorrow off, or it the day would be a bit of an adventure.

    At least I'll have vacation in January. Sometime.

    So there's a 2nd person at my job, this time a coworker, that is kind of bugging me a bit, mainly because he acts like he's another boss, but only when it comes to clients he works with closely ("his babies" as the secretary calls it). But listen, bud, if my boss, and your boss, the owner of the business, tells me to do something, I am going to do it, regardless of what you want me to do when it comes to X client. You have a problem with it I think you know who you can take it up with.

    But I've also told secretary (and will tell dispatcher when he returns from vacay) not to give me any of the tickets from that client if they can help it so I don't have to put up with the guy's condescending bullshit.

    I'm in a weird quasi-vacation state. This was going to be vacation, but because I had to jet to somewhere ELSE for hospital visits, etc, I've been "working" remotely. Got some shit done, but most days it's fielding email and nothing more. My boss and I are just going to hash out how many vacation days I'm carrying over to next year when I get back. Thankfully, we're kinda-sorta in the first real lull in things for me to do in....over a year? So if it had to happen, now was the time.

    News is making the case that the entire North America continent's flight paths are FUBAR (something like 4000 flights cancelled?). So if it wasn't missed, there was a high probability that it would have been one of the ones cancelled.

    My family has finally converted almost entirely to Amtrak (because we're spread out between DC, Philly, and NYC, this is actually perfect) and honestly I ain't looking back - I'll gladly eat the raised price to guarantee a certain arrival time w/o any hassle. The bus is jam-packed, awful, and completely dependent on traffic to be a good deal, and getting on a plane on schedule in the Northeast at any point between November and March is a risky proposition...

    That being said I took New Year's week off from work and I'm gonna fly outta EWR so go ahead and prove me wrong God

    At least, if you do get stuck, EWR is a p. good Airport to get stuck-in; plenty of available seating, and ipads to order overpriced food delivered directly to your waiting area seat.

    Every single flight leaving montreal today left, including the flight I would have been on.

    I was able to get to the airport at that exceedingly annoying time where I was early enough to be able to get on the plane myself, but late enough by about fifteen minutes that they refused to take my bag.

    Kinda important to have the bag for christmas trip.

    I have the next three days off, then I work from home, then I have another five day weekend. I will obviously have my work phone with me and I do have to log in first thing tomorrow to apply some charges to an invoice but other than that I got two five day weekends in a row.

    I also confirmed I'm definitely going to San Diego in a few weeks for a conference so I'm starting to get a bit excited. Once the smoke settles from the holiday I'll probably have to make sure my wardrobe is ready for a three day shmoozefest.

    Closest bridge over the ship canal was busted today. My gym is on the other side of the bridge. All I wanted to do today was cardio, and I was stubborn about it, so yeah traffic down to the next bridge, across & around, actual time spent at the gym, and trip back? Two and a half hours for what normally takes about forty minutes.
