Thursday!

Itzl AlertingAs you can see by Itzl's concerned look, this group is for us to check in at to let people know we are alive, doing OK, and not affected by such things as heat, blizzards, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, or other such things that could keep us off DKos. It's also so we can find other Kossacks nearby for in-person checks when other methods of communication fail - a buddy system. Members come here to check in. If you're not here, or anywhere else on DKos, and there are adverse conditions in your area (floods, heatwaves, hurricanes, etc.), we and your buddy are going to check up on you. If you are going to be away from your computer for a day or a week, let us know here.  We care!
We have split up the publishing duties, but we welcome everyone in IAN to do daily diaries for the group!  Every member is an editor, so anyone can take a turn when they have something to say, photos and music to share, a cause to promote or news!

Ok, we have a (mostly)  finished diary schedule.  If you would like to write an IAN diary, either post in the thread or send FloridaSNMOM a Kosmail with the date. If you need someone to fill in, ditto. FSNMom is here on and off through the day usually from around 9:30 or 10 am eastern to around 11 pm eastern.

If you'd like to be part of the Itzl Alert Network, please leave a comment asking to join, or send us a message asking to join. We'd love to have you. The bigger our network, the less likely someone will be stranded all alone.

Somebody should cook for me every morning!
I love breakfast, and I want to eat before I do any work each day.  I needed fasting blood work this week, so I had to skip my meal.  This makes me so grouchy.  Tell us about your breakfast routine!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:

          I never ate breakfast in college, either. Sleep is good =)

          Then, I started working. Chose sleep over breakfast again.

          I can manage brunch at a civilized hour, though. Like after noon.

  •  On the topic of the day, I eat a high fat diet, (14+ / 0-)

    but nothing before doing some work.

    If I'm working my usual 2 to 11 PM schedule
    at Walmart,
    I sleep from 6 AM to 12:30,
    get ready,
    go to work,
    and the first time I eat is at my 4 PM short break,
    usually cheddar cheese and crackers and water.

    My meal break is often at 7 PM,
    when I eat cheese soup,
    a ramen kit with eight slices of cheese melted in.

    Sometimes I eat hot dogs or baloney,
    either instead of or with the soup.

    My last break is usually 10:20 PM,
    and I often have just coffee.

    I sometimes eat more fatty foods after checking out,
    which is often at midnight.

    When I get home,
    I often eat leftover hot dogs,
    unless I take time to cook
    bacon and eggs.

  •  In other news, I just wrote an article (12+ / 0-)

    on how to hang grasscloth wall coverings. They're like wallpaper only made with real grasses glued to the paper backing. And they're quite beautiful, imo.

    It's a subject about which I knew absolutely nothing ahead of time. I found enough references and info from a google search that I could pull it together pretty quickly.

    On the other hand, last week I wrote an article on how to decorate an Asian-themed bedroom -- including the Feng Shui considerations. Having been a Feng Shui consultant for 15+ years, I know a lot about that subject. I thought this would be an easy article to write because I know the subject, right?

    Wrong. It was so hard to condense what I know about feng shui & asian decor that I spent days trying to boil it down into 500 words. Yet the subject about which I knew nothing was so easy to write. Go figure.

    There's a lesson in there somewhere ...

      and now it's getting too dark and attracts too much dust and I want to paint over it. The guy in the store who sold me the wallpaper says it's possible, but I am still afraid to do the job by myself. On the other hand my house is too dark and it makes me depressive. Have to do something about it. And I have to get rid of all my junk furniture to make it happen. It is way too hot and humid already in the DC area and I have to leave for work in a couple of minutes and won't be back til 7 pm. How in earth will I ever be able to do all the work I would want to do.

      Sigh. I am not starting the day in a good mood.

        And the scrapers. You can ask the person in charge of the aisle, and he or she should be able to tell you how to use it. EHow also has good info. I think it might be a messy and possibly smelly job, but it shouldn't be difficult.

        I'm guessing that grasscloth can't be cleaned? Maybe Jan knows? I wonder if you could also rent a steamer and get it off? Maybe you steam it off first, then use the solvent to get off the goop.

          that it darkens a lot with age. And I have a dog who sheds a lot of very fine hair and this hair together with dust really likes to cling to the grass wallpaper and I have no appetite to vacuum the wall paper, nor the time.

          Me furlough days? No way. I would need to work overhours to do what I have to do, but they won't pay for that, so I don't work too many extra hours. My day is long enough with the commute. They also don't hire some short time extra help. They also don't accept my offer to time-share with someone else to do the work.  What else don't they do? I guess ... they don't care.

              the more I have difficulties with it. I work in my garden in the summer just when it is dark in the evening. Too hot in the early evening hours.

              And BTW with my response to your furlough days, I didn't mean to sound insensitive with my "No way" answer. I have a German employer, it's very rare to get something like furlough. It's also not easy to get a job with them, but once you are in, it's a little bit more safe than an American employer.

              I am very glad to have a job at all, it would be quite a headache for my family, if I hadn't. My son is not that lucky, so I should not complain... but then I do complain because it's not supposed to be that I would have to work til I am seventy just because the younger generation doesn't find jobs.

                sequester, but that surely isn't hitting you.  

                When I first started teaching, high school teachers could get sabbaticals, to pursue an advanced degree or something else that would make them better teachers. It was usually for one year or 6 months and they got 1/2 time pay and promised to return to the district to teach.  

                The districts no longer value highly trained and experienced teachers, they look to get them retired asap and hire the young, cheap and docile ones.  I wish for you a german employer that provides a pension for years of service, but since the world is changing, that may no longer be true for german companies either.

                I have been looking (casually, I admit) for work in retirement; I have a very part time job with the elections commission supervising local elections, so I don't have to say I am unemployed.  I work between 1 and 4 days a year.  I like the work, and have enough from my teacher's pension that really don't need the job. Having it keeps my self esteem from slipping.

                  have to report on it for the German TV audience and that's a lot of work ... and no, I work as a locally employed German in Washington DC with a German company and therefore work technically under Washington DC labor laws, which are ... underwhelmingly lousy.

                  But if I were a German having been sent from Germany to the US, I would have a regular pension and the normal German retirmement benefits you get automatically just by working. Compared to the Americans we are very well off, even the second class Germans who have been locally hired :-). I won't complain. I just hate my commute 3 to 3 1/2 hours per day in the car, stop and go, and it costs a lot of gasoline. The public transportation that exists is not cheaper and not faster either. So ... the "first class" Germans :-)  (the ones sent over here), they get living assistance like 60% of their rent. They can afford to live close-by the office because of that. And they never know how tough it is to survive as a regular American in this city.

  •  Good morning! (9+ / 0-)

    I almost always make my coffee first, which takes a little time, because it ends up as a latté, and starts with heating up organic milk. While that is going on, I put the water and the ground Ethiopian espresso in the little Italian espresso maker (no expensive coffee machine, I drink coffee much too seldom to justify an expense like that), then when both are ready, into the nice big ceramic blue mug they go. It ends up being about a half a liter, which is close to a pint. Needless to say, all that liquid, and esp. the milk, is filling, so I usually have breakfast much later. It varies between muesli with yogurt, toast (from German dark bread) or oatmeal. No meat for me. I never cared for it even as a child, so it was easy to stop eating it altogether years and years ago.  Not strict, as I do eat fish occasionally, but not for breakfast! :-D

    The only good thing about kippers in the morning would be that it would work for me as a  surefire diet, because just  the idea of it would ruin any appetite I had for the entire day.

    I am a work in progress. Still.

      She has taken to freezing any fruit she has that is quite ripe and then makes smoothies for breakfast lunch or snacks.  She gave up meat after watching that special on PBS a few years ago so there is a lot of fruit in her kitchen.

  •  Good morning! (7+ / 0-)

    I got up this morning to my daughter being up already and she had all my normal housework done already! I love it, and she did a great thing but now I'm feeling a bit lost as my routine is broken LOL.

    Usually I do part of my housework, and then have something to eat, depending how early it is I'll have a cereal bar or a small piece of brownie or cake if we have any in between because I don't usually eat a real breakfast until about 9 or 10 am.  Once my housework is done, then I eat breakfast.
    Sometimes I'll have Special K (I like chocolatey strawberry when I can get it, sometimes I have blueberry instead), sometimes I'll make omlets for everyone if I'm feeling ambitious, sometimes I'll make an egg sandwich or just have toast. Sometimes I'll have what my daughter calls "toaster waffles".. because you make them in the toaster.

  •  Good morning, everyone! (6+ / 0-)

    I wake up hungry. Usually start with a small bowl of cereal, then about an hour later have something more substantial - some kind of sandwich most of the time - toasted cheese, egg, etc.

    One of my favorite breakfasts, though, is a slice of pie.

    Going to be warm today, up to 80°.

    Hope you're all well and have a fine day.

      in the morning too.  School lunch times were early, so I ended up with four meals; three small and one "traditional american" at supper.  I do think pie makes a fine brealfast too, even if the pie is a pizza!

    Does anyone remember where in Texas she's from? There were apparently several tornadoes in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area last night, including some fatalities. Are there other Texas Kossacks we need to count heads for?

    So much of what's available is so terribly sweet.  First thing in the morning, sweet things really set my teeth on edge.  I'd much rather have protein.

    Or Cheerioes.

    checked in for a couple of days, so hello. Tired, so tired,
    but will have more energy in a few days!

    probiotic dairy drink and a slice of toast with organic peanut butter on it. Yummy, huh? I'd much rather have that slice of pie with carolanne. :)

    I almost forgot to check in here this morning due to brain fog. I was up at 3am taking Hilde outside for a pee. The diuretic had already caused her to pee while she was sleeping, but she had several wee wee pads under her, thank Dog.

    Then she woke me at 5 am, flapping her ears and shuffling around the bed. She was HUNGRY.  So I got up again and gave her some hamburger cooked w/ baby spinach and took her outside again.

    Decided I might as well stay up. Got lots of chores to do today, business stuff to take care of, and our other two woozles need grooming attention, as do I.

    With any luck I may get a little nap before I keel over.

  •  hi-ho! just realized I've been missing these (4+ / 0-)

    because... all the wonderful new editors, whom I thank very much, each and every one!, seem to have their own ways of titling and tagging their contributions...

    see, I have a list of the series I check throughout the week, usually it's a tag that's also the series title, and if the form of the tag on my list doesn't match what's on the new diary, I get a blank... and have to search and search to figure out where the new diary is.

    so I looked up a couple of older IANs and IF anyone is interested in coordinating with the older forms, it's completely up to you all who are doing the work...

    Noddy's form of the title of these was (for example for May 11)

    IAN: Good Morning, May 11, 2013

    the way she tagged was simply

    5-11-13, IAN, itzl alert network

    This is not the only "place" this happens, 8-), several of my other "regular" series have occasional guest editors, or have changed to an editorial group like here (founder "retired" from doing every single issue), so I've had occasion to think of this before, 8-).

    Yay, it's really raining! not much, but several day's worth... wow, NOAA's 72-hr precip. total is now up to 0.22 inches!!! I know what finally started it -- of course! I started watering flower beds in the front yard a couple of days ago, and it rained that night!

      appear in my stream. Easy peasy, no? Anything else seems a bit complicated. I like to keep things minimal and straightforward. :-) Now, if only my paperwork reflected that...
