I am apparently feelin' posty today...  
I love this with a fondness that probably scares Martin to some degree... LOLvows ^_^


I gave the people at Glassbooth.org a hard time about their lack of third party candidates in their quiz, and apparently so did a lot of other people. They now have a much wider choice for who you're most likely to match up for, vote-wise, and my results were...

# 1 Bob Barr 79% similarity
# 2 Ralph Nader 61% similarity
# 3 John McCain 56% similarity

I'm amused that I got Nader second ^_^ How are yours?


Here is a map from google...

First, let me point out the little things shaped like fires. They're fires. (FYI, some fires are hiding behind the "school closing" icons, so that big cluster there is also a huge fire) Now you see the freeways that are red? They're closed freeways. Imagine now what the commute must be like in those areas. Now check out the little blue star. That's our house. The purple star is Karen's house. Now imagine what Martin's commute must be like.


I'll let him clarify if he feels such.

Now look at the little blue star again. See those orange arrows? They're the direction of the prevailing winds. Now here's a picture of how they affect my allergies...

Neither one of us is having our best day.

This concludes the multipost/updateyness/whineyness.

Allertec, generic Zertek, Baby!

It lasts 24 hours or I would be ded right now.

Last night the wind almost pulled the doorknob out of my hand.

I haven't ever tried Zyrtec, but I just took a generic Claritin. I'd be on more things, but I have class tonight and can't get all drowsy. I should try and pick up some Zyrtec at some point, thanks for the hint!

If you can get into costco the generic stuff is 25.00 for 300!

Name brand is 20.00 for 30.

YOWZA! Priceyness!

Now I know why I haven't tried it!

Honestly, I rarely take the claritin for the same reason. I got this batch about 7 years ago when I had Kaiser and they have uber-super-discounts on GeneriClaritin. So I've been nursing the bottle.

Does anyone who's reading this have a way to get good discounts on either of these generics??

lironesslironess on October 13th, 2008 09:23 pm (UTC)
300 is pretty much a YEARS supply if you use it every day.

dollar tree has generic claritin, I think you get like 10 tabs for a buck.
Fritters: TT Oooo - looking by shamanic_nurikofritters on October 13th, 2008 09:47 pm (UTC)
Really? Good point on both of those. I didn't really think through the price per unit on the Zyrtec, my brain is busy trying to breathe. I had no idea Claritin was at Dollar Tree, I haven't been to one in ages. I know where one close to school is.

That top fire is actually located sort of under all those green shelter and horse shelter symbols (could be you actually Have a few of those buried under there...) Yes, right in the smoke line of both our houses (Mine is about at the top of the second "1" in the "101" shield.)

And I was wondering why I started getting migraines on friday...

So you're spending the day suffering, too?

I'm just glad none are at Karen's house. While Martin and I have High Whining Advisories, no I know is actually in danger.

Actually I had a ton of errands today, including getting up into that area to swing by the apartment... Thank Goodness I'm on vacation!

I got Bob Barr at 74%, McCain at 65% (curious) and Cynthia McKinney, the Green Party candidate, at 58% (WTF?). And yes, the commute sucked, thanks for asking :)

Frittersfritters on October 14th, 2008 05:23 am (UTC)
So you'd agree more with a green candidate than Obama. Wow.

I thought that was kinda weird, too. I'm guessing they still haven't really pinned down the third party candidates, yet.

Sorry about the allergies and stuff.

Hey BTW on Hulu.com have you checked out Mushi Shi? Start with first two eps and let me know what you think.

Hope you are feeling better.

It'll probably be a while before I get to it, but I'll try to. The Hulu, that is.
Fritters: Ed Peering by Frittersfritters on October 20th, 2008 02:58 pm (UTC)
Huh. That's pretty interesting. I'll probably watch more, thanks for telling me about that.

My biggest issue after seeing only Ep1 is who was the series about: the little boy and his writing, or the stranger. I thought it was gonna be the kid!

Yeah, that was sort of weird. So it stays on the wandering dude?

Yes it does. and in a few eps there is a character with a monocle who is voiced by the same guy as Shin-Chan's dad (go to adultswim.com/videoes and watch an ep of that show, very crude but funny!!!)

I know this isn't really your fault, but I'm going to blame you for this anyway. Just, 'cause... *shrug*

This is the first time I've read LJ in about a month, so sorry for not commenting on your other posts.

Anyway, I went to the LOLvows site, and my boyfriend got home while I was reading it. So he started reading it too, and said "Can we use those for our wedding vows?" -_-;;

I'm just glad SOMEONE commented on that, I was thinking no one saw it and it's great.

Good luck finding a preacher willing to refer to G*d as "Ceiling Cat" ^_^
