oh geez, that just makes my skin crawl
and NO I hate snakes... don't like spiders either, but easier to kill.. I of course being the one that cannot stand the things, found one in my basement either last year or the year before, which dh went around and insulated, boarded up around the ceiling down there.. well, where he thought they might could get in.. ewww, just gives me chills .. have you got somewhere you can go until your hubby gets home?? Thank God mine was home that day, I have wondered what in the world would I do if I come across one & him not here?? shutter to think.. hope it is out or something else preferably that made the noise

the days doing MT just crawl along
I want to be productive, 1800+ per day would be nice.  I'm thinking of covering all the clocks in the room where I work and using an alarm clock.  Closing browser windows.  Set the clock for every hour or two hours.  I have no idea.  Help i'm in a rut and can't get out. 
Well then just crawl back in your hole and do that. nm
Go crawl underneath your bridge troll!
You are a troll.  Get gone!!
George Clooney...something about those eyes! nm
Are you kidding - at least Clooney speaks properly.
Matt comes across as being very dumb when he speaks and is apparently odd to boot - remember the incidents where he got caught doing something naked extremely high on pot??? And now, no deodorant?!? Please, up your expectations, ladies! He seems to be a total loser. Now, George, hmmmm! I'll take that. LOL!
George Clooney and Richard Gier (sp?)
You forgot Ben Casey, George Clooney ... sm


But actually, the first DR. KILDARE wasn't TV's Richard Chamberlain.  Series was based on series of old movies (no age issue here ... first one came out same year my mom was born, around 1932 or 1933 or so).  There, Dr. Kildare was played by Lew Ayres and Dr. Gillespie was played by Lionel Barrymore.

Docs were male, nurses all female and scurring around with, "Yes, doctor... No, doctor ... Right away, doctor."

I have never seen the George Clooney thing. He looks like a Bassett Hound with a
George Clooney, hot wings, and Coors Light
can we go now?
Brad Pitt, George Clooney. Cool guys who don't take themselves too seriously.

I watch them even in their bad movies but has anybody seen Brad Pitt in one of his first movies A River Runs Through produced by Robert Redford.  OMG, he is a beautiful man. 

George Clooney is cool and not bad to look at.  Not full of himself either.


Luka is a poor replacement for my main man George Clooney.
Maybe it's the scripts he is given.  He just doesn't have the star quality and charm that George had but who could follow George Clooney?  Not Luka.  Of course I gave up watching ER awhile ago when it became Bizaarro World with B actors so maybe Luka has changed?

Skin infection

Email me. I wasn't able to email you. :0)

Skin infection
What kind of skin infection? I have had good luck with Betadine for certain things.
Look and see if there is a type 2 skin? nm
skin types
It does depend on the skin type and the type of laser machine they used. Many of them do not do darker skin. They all do tend to work better on lighter skins. I have dark hair due to a hormone imbalance my whole life since childhood. Dark hair on my arms, etc. Some laser brands of machine are better than others. Let me know if you decide you want information on the one I work for or I can give you the name of the top selling laser brand out there that I would recommend from what I know.
skin care
I was hooked on Almay skin products (one reason because they have no scent) until about 6 years ago and discovered jafra.  It is SO awesome.  i use the day cream, night cream, and cleansing cream.  My friends always remark on my skin being so soft and clear (and I'm 55 !). I can't stand to ever be dry!  Have lotion on my desk, night stand, etc.
skin care
I used Mary Kay for all my skin care/makeup, although for just a natural look I do use the Bare Minerals foundation sometimes.
and your kids skin or anything else that
comes in contact with it. that is a dangerous item.
You need thicker skin. nm
s/l "curbiges" for skin infections
it's very drying to the skin, and I can't imagine
making my puppy or dog uncomfortable with dry skin.

Just try it, wash your hair or body in DAWN soap and you will be itching like crazy. It dries your hair out horribly, leaving you with flyaway frizzy hair. But talk about itching, OUCH AND UNCOMFORTABLE.

Sorry, but that's just how I feel.
Goodness! That is just awful. Seems to need a tough skin to
My cocker spaniel has a skin condition.
Her claws are brittle and long, her paw pads are thickened, she's itchy and smelly, and she has dead skin cells built up in the same areas you described.  We did the antibiotics, steroids, allergy meds, and everything else without good results.  I put a stop to it when the vet wanted to do $1,000 worth of tests and biopsies.  (And switched vets!)  The first vet called it allergies, seborrhea, keratinitis, and a bunch of other guesses.  She also has mattery eyes and frequent ear infections.  We rescued her from the pound 10 years ago, so she's an old girl.  I have to keep her shaved and wash her with either a prescription shampoo or Neutrogena T-gel.
skin care products and allergies

I used another product that is sold on QVC by a lady doctor in September.  Overnight I developed a horrible burn on my face that nearly closed both eyes.  My skin was so red under my eyes that I looked like I had two black eyes.  I believe it was a chemical burn caused by some ingredient in that product.  It is now December 12, and I still suffer from a burning sensation and very red cheeks and sensitive eyes.  I have not used this product since that first episode, but I have used other products from other companies, with the same result.  I believe most of the upscale cosmetic and skin care products must contain the same ingredient that is too harsh for sensitive skin (obviously) and that may cause an allergic reaction. 

I used bad judgment in not seeing a doctor with the first episode, thinking it would just go away.  Well it does go away and cycles and recycles again and again, with the same results.   I am not going through another cycle, and it is at the stage of just returning.  It will get increasingly worse over the next two or three days and then start to subside, leaving my skin feeling like leather, peeling slightly under my eyes.  I have bags under my eyes that I never had before. 

I guess sooner or later I'll just get sick of all this and finally get a referral to a dermatologist before I suffer permanent, irreversible damage, if that has not already occurred. 

I believe perhaps the ingredient is either salicylic, glycolic, or  lactic acid, which seems to be the hot ingredient in skin care these days.  I've used retinol products in the past without a problem, but I guess we can all develop allergies to anything.  I've also used glycolic acid cleansers in the past without a problem.  Again, allergies can certainly crop up in anything.

Incidentally, I have a friend who used Avon night cream recently who woke up with a face full of pimples, too! 


excess skin after weight loss
Did you then have surgery to remove the sagging skin? I need to lose 140 lbs, which I have packed on over the past 20 years. I never weighed over 112 lbs. or wore larger than a size 3 (!!) until I turned 30. My lifestyle changed (not for the better) at that point, and I basically lose interest in how I looked. Now, at age 51, my health is seriously in trouble due to my obesity. What am I going to do with all the excess skin? I already have a big fat pouch under my waist, and above my waist I look like I'm 7 months pregnant! Are there any health insurance plans that will pay for surgery to remove the leftover skin? I see people on Dr. 90210 having the surgery, but I bet they have to pay out of pocket and I bet it's tens of thousands of dollars.
sagging skin after weight loss
Thanks for much the info about plastic surgery. I guess the only way to look at it is this: My health and life are in danger if I don't take this weight off. Whether or not I'm left with skin hanging down to my ankles (I hope I'm exaggerating!), at least I'll be alive and have more energy and flexibility. Guess I should cross one bridge at a time. :) I've decided to start Michael Thurmond's Lifestyle Change course. Ordered the whole kit from HSN (or maybe QVC), and truly think I can do it. Have never tried any diets in the past. Was in denial about my weight for the longest time...kept thinking it was a "phase." Ha-ha! You know how formerly anorectic people still think of themselves as fat? Well, I'm an stress-overeater in denial, and I still think of myself as thin...until I see myself in the mirror. Yikes!
So far, not much loose skin, but you do need to do toning exercises
and work out with weights to help prevent that.

Thicken your skin. Other groups are making
Its just human nature.
John T is a great disappointment to me. He is bloated and looks like he is about to pop with skin s
A poster below said John T looks like he swallowed the original lean and mean handsome John from Urban Cowboy days. I agree. But it could be worse. He could be bald I guess. Back in the day I could watch his movies over and over especially Saturday Night Fever and Urban Cowboy. Now it's just sad. He seems a characture of his former self. Kind of on his way to Marlon Brando state of aging.
She needed thicker skin. You weren't rude at all. nm
Guess it depends on how porous his skin is-- try cold cream maybe? - sm
My kids have done all sorts of stuff, usually the face cleans up except for red in my experience...fades over a week or so. But cold cream is good for make up so maybe it will work, if you don't have any handy maybe a thick moisturizer? Obviously the hands are not an issue since they won't be in the picture, you can always try a liquid make-up if it doesn't come off and if the make up does not look weird. Good luck.....you can always keep him home or arrange for him to do the make-up picture for kids who are sick...they always have a make up picture day...find out when it is and just do it then.
I dunno. I sure do miss my Selectric and those onion-skin copies. nm
Gosh, there are a thousand possibilities. ?and no doctor has offered to do a skin scraping

arms?  Is it in groin areas or creases of knees or something?  Has he got a low-grade fever?  Does he have headaches?

Just having it on his eyes sounds like another thing that is going on here.  Except people are just having their FEET AND ANKLES TURN RED AND FEVERISH...looks like gout, but it is actually a problem with some reaction the thyroid or parathyroid is having to something.  Very strange but folks here are having it like crazy -- and with it are a lot of muscle cramping.  Isn't it odd that the feet would be affected by the thyroid or parathyoid.>?

So, I could see where something you'd never think could be affecting just his arms.  Tell us more.

That's not weird
You may think I'm weird. . .
But I find MT very relaxing. I used to work as a human resources manager and had a phone to my ear all day and people in my office complaining about their supervisors, complaining about their employees, and just plain complaining. My job had TONS of variety - like when one of the companies I worked for had a big layoff and I had a suicidal employee in my office telling me she was going to kill herself because she was being laid off. Frankly, you could pay me all the money in the world and I wouldn't go back to that. I think MTs great - more money would be nice, but other things are important, too.
another weird one..

I didn't transcribe this one, but a doc I worked for was telling us about this man in the ER with a gerbil (s/p?).... you know the little furry animal...stuck in his rectum.  Apparently the gerbil was put in his rectum using a paper towel cardboard tube-thingy and got stuck behind a gas bubble in his intestines!!!!

I don't know what ever happened to that man, but I hope he went for some serious counseling after that...

This is weird...
There are no menu keys at all, no view. I clicked on the small window and it made the page smaller. Now I have my menu keys, my tool bar, everything. When I enlarge the page back, then I lose everything again. If I keep it small, everything is okay.
Something that happens weird (sm)

When I'm typing along with my Instant Text along the bottom I'll occasionally (too much for my tastes) lose letters, especially when I type a period...I'll lose the last 2 or 3 characters of the previous word.  It's really bizarre.  I have no other problems with IT when typing in Word all by itself or any other program, so I assume it's just a problem when I'm using the ExText with IT.

I like going back into the old documents.  It takes a bit sometimes to load different things but it's good overall.

So weird

Its so weird, this happens to me too..

I wonder why though?

That's her and she is really weird...
So does this mean that now we have to be leery of posting on here as well in order to avoid even more scam artists than usual?
The thing for me is this sounds like you were working on site in the office with all this drama. How can you even see how much work someone else is doing if you are a virtual worker? And everything else sounds like the hospital politics of working in the hospital, strange that it could go on virtually.
how weird am I?

I won't give out my phone number, but yet I invited an internet friend of mine from Australia to come and stay with me for a couple of weeks while she was in the states. 

I'm happy to report that her visit was absolutely wonderful and she did not turn out to be a serial killer, as my daughter had portended :)

I must be weird
but I have always typed B with my left hand (6 with right).
