    Thank you folks. No test scheduled YET, of course it's Christmas AND it's the VA... so no telling how long she has to wait. I called this morning and left a message for the doctor regarding the possibility of a transfusion for her, but naturally got no response yet.

    I appreciate the prayers and well wishes. Same back to all of you. I will keep you posted.

    :)

    Free money? YEP!

    Open Amazon Appstore and download an app. Get $5 credit! :eek:

    I know, I just bought a 99-cent app and got the $5 credit notification instantly via e-mail, good for future app or in-app purchases. Thanks DontPanicBobby for that tip!

    I thought of this while driving today.

    I bought two of my nieces and nephew two gifts for tomorrow. One of their gifts I placed inside a cereal box. I found out what kind they like and I placed the gift in a ziplock bag then I opened the box from the bottom, pulled out the bag, cut it open, placed the ziplock bag inside with the cereal, taped the hole shut, put the bag of cereal back in the box and finally glued the box of cereal closed like it has never been opened.

    So now they get the one gift and then they have to wait until the next day at breakfast to get the next one and also enjoy some cereal for X amount of days. :)

    Greetings, people. I am in a nice mood today, although I had a rough evening.

    We met up together with some friends to play board games. One of the ones we played was "Apples to Apples". I won't bore you with the rules, details, etc. but suffice to say that you are given 7 red cards that you have to draw your answers to questions from.

    At one point (I was very far behind in the game), I decided I didn't like a few of my red cards and began swapping them out for others. This is not allowed by the rules, so I guess it was technically cheating, but I did it in plain view of everyone. My wife was the only one that noticed (there was a lot of chatter going on), and she pointed her finger at me (literally) and yelled that I was cheating. Everyone, and I mean everyone (about 10 people) really started into me. From then on, instead of referring to me by name, they called me "cheater". My wife wondered aloud why she had ever married me. Another suggested to her that she check my bank statements and phone records to make sure that I was not cheating on her either. Another suggested she hire a private detective on me.

    It was funny at first, for like the first 10 minutes, but after about a half hour it got to be too much. I suggested they all look in the mirror when they got home and think about how they bullied (which is strongly frowned upon nowadays). They retorted that I do the same, except think about how much a perverted cheater I am (I don't know why the first person threw in "perverted" in there; I hadn't done anything to deserve that, at least last night, but everyone laughed and changed my name to PC, for "perverted cheater").

    I like to joke as much as the next guy, but it got to be a bit too much. They could tell I wasn't pleased near the end, and my wife asked her best friend to text her before bed to make sure that I hadn't murdered her.

    She's fine. I didn't murder her.

    That is annoying though. I never found it funny from the beginning :/

    I dish it out quite a bit, so I can take it. But it went on for too long. I mean, I do have feelings. :p

    Plus there was quite a bit of Guinness flowing, so that probably factors into it.

    Euchre.

    Great game and cheating is part of the expected nuances.

    My favorite. No kidding. :)

    This is a prerequisite for being in my family. I've been playing since before I can remember.
