Voice Post: morning with the dogs

As usual, I cannot figure out why some things get auto transcribed and others don't. And this one is hilarious! If you don't listen to it and I didn't put a disclaimer on it, I suppose you might wonder what on earth is going on! There is significant sound effect in the voice post. Meg can be heard panting expectantly in the background behind some of my talking. Oh, and of course she does not chew on bowls!

“I'm here in the morning, there are two dogs in the house, they were play but I don't think they gonna play any more, there they go, they're running all through the house, now they're in the living room, ___, here they come again. Now they're in my room, go get her, ___ Meg. Megan has energy this morning, I'm not sure what happened, so I think they got a little warmer than it was, and she likes that, do you like that? Do like it? That was Megan saying good morning, ___ Loretta, come here. What's the matter Megan, she won't play with you, she won't play with you, she won't play you. What? She won't play with you, make her come play with you, ___ Megan, tell her to come play. So anyway, Megan is a ball of energy this morning and Lorretta is chewing on a bowl in the other room. Megan is wagging, somebody must have done something real nice for her this morning, huh Meg. Say good morning LiveJournal.”

This is part 2 of morning with the dogs. They are no longer running, and again there are sound effects--and they are not chewing on bowls but on bones.

“I'm sitting in the living room, with two dogs, Ohms(?) or I can hear. Hi, just giving me her paw oh she gonna get on my lap. ___ hi, where's your bone, what you doing, ___ yeah she got her bone, she's putting her bone in my lap. I got one in ___ and she's giving me her paw and chewing on her bone, she is the most talented dog. Ouch, careful ___ out ok, good girl. This is now I'm gonna take my bone away and they'll ___ and chew on it. Megan is just here with her bone and I can scratch her back, she likes it so now they settle down from their play and they having a bit old time.”

Voice Post: hearing aids

I just got my hearing aids back from being repaired. I am describing the differences I noticed while wearing them. I am thrilled in much the same way that I was when I first got them. If someone wants to take a stab at creatively transcribing this for those who can't hear it, I would appreciate it a lot. I am a little overwhelmed at the moment.

Friday five

I usually don't do Friday Five, but this one just looked too intriguing, especially the last question.

1. What was the most sick that you've ever been?

Hospitalized for pneumonia in 1995, on IV antibiotics that stole my appetite and caused other side effects which meant I could not comfortably sleep my life away. It is frustrating to be told you must eat in order to go home when food makes you nauseous.

2. What disease are you afraid of getting?


3. Are you a big baby when it comes to taking medicine/shots for your illnesses?

I do not like needles but am quite good at pills, inhalers, eye drops, and nasal sprays.

4. Is going to the doctor really THAT bad?

Not usually.

5. Would you have the flu twice a month if you were paid $1,000 for having it?

There are lots of really creative income opportunities out there. This, I must say, is not one of them!

about all this homework

Houston, we have a big problem!

I thought I was doing really well. I have read 40 pages today and done some writing on my paper that is due on Tuesday. Very nice...

However, chapter 2 doesn't end until page 78. And I have to read all the way to chapter 4--page 170. I still have another chapter to read for Monday.

I think sleep is in order, and then I must be a busy bee tomorrow.
