Good morning! Well, I kinda slept, and the fever's down, so yay!
The cats are on their 5th week of the new diet/food plan. Dahlia has trimmed down and is a bit anxious for suppertimes (she loves the new food) but Dixie is... Still Dixie. OCD eating. She has only lost one - two ounces of the pound she has to lose at minimum. Slow but steady, hwoever. I will keep up the regimen, despite Hubby's tendency to cave to the "But we love you and our bowls are empty!" routine.
REgimen: a plan, or course, of treatment, typically health-related (e.g., "strict diet regimen")
Regime: a system imposed from above, typically an authoritarian government, or the (usually authoritarian) government itself (e.g., The regime of Idi Amin was a dark time in Uganda's history. Hitler's regime was marked by genocide. and so on)
Discreet: subtle, as in "Her make-up was discreet, her gossip far less so."
Discrete: unique individual unit, as in "The atom is a discrete unit within the molecule." (Actually,t hat's just an example sentence, but you get the idea.)
And because I'm that person... If you must tweet like a Kardashian, don't forget that "formally" is how you spell "FORMERLY"...
Lesson of the day: AUTOFILL IS NOT YOUR FRIEND. Nor is autocorrect. A lot of people get caught on your/you're from that (they claim, anyway!).
I point this out b/c I was an editor, and in my head always will be, so... Hey, Istill hate using "impact" as a verb. Yet I will gladly verb words anyway. Go figure. English.
And, y'know, it's me trying again.
"Millennial Money Mules" is a new piece of financial jargon. Refers to people who open bank accounts b/c of promises of rewards programs (frequent flyer miles, etc.)... and the bank accounts then launder ill-gotten gains from the internet's many criminals, who've figured out that you can't spend Bitcoin at the store, but you sure can hide it easily in the "cloud"
Meanwhile, a belated happy Canada Day to all! SORRY! BLame the germ! Blame the germ! Bad strep! Bad strep! *shakes finger of admonition at it*
OK, gotta eat oatmeal (woot, I can eat) and check out the Women's WOrld Cup. England vs US today and Sweden vs Netherlands tomorrow in semi-finals, then the Big Game. Cred to all the ladies who got this far, b/c dang, I know ta few teams weren't expectin gthis. So, WOOT!
Havew a great Tuesday! I'm off to binge-watch bad TV and drink hot liquids. I still can't smell the onion broth I'm using, so I know it's not yet done its job. Alas.
Purrs to all!

Good morning, and yes, I'm in a Fibro Zone. Hot hot hot humid humid humid. May as well just crank my Fibro to nine and leave it there. Oh wait... The weather did. *sigh*Well, I started out investigating good walking shoes and wound up on anacondas of the Amazon.I'll spare you that journey (you're welcome) and settle for this tale.***Dahlia squalls.Dixie fluffs up her tail and flees.I hobble at...
