    Yeah, I had chicken pox when I was six. I got it from a girl at school, then I gave it to my teenage uncle, who gave it to my infant brother, and also a cousin. We were a miserable household for a while.

    I've got a scar on my neck from one of the pox.

    I actually just didn't realize they were the same virus as shingles, and thought shingles was one of those diseases lumped in with the MMR, polio shots. This has been very informative! (Also, hope you feel better soon anubisa)

    Medicaid and medicare don't necessarily cover anything. They're not broad programs like that, they're means tested assistance.

    I'm gathering different poetry I like for my BoS and I've been thinking over how comfortable I am editing texts that I don't necessarily own. I don't intend to distribute any part of BoS for sale, so there isn't any legal problems, but to what extent does editing and reduction influence the legacy of that person's work. For example, I love much of Valiente's poetry but when I've included it, I've removed references to overtly Wiccan concepts like the rede, because I am not a Wiccan and do not find that concept appealing. I doubt this is a change she would approve of, but it's also my BoS so how much should I care? Does it somehow disrespect her legacy, or the intellectual value of the work? I'm not adding anything, the edits are purely reductive. However, removing information for any reason just feels a bit wrong. On the other hand, my BoS should reflect my theology and I shouldn't include information that isn't useful. In any case, I'd want to exclude it when reciting anyway, so I figured just removing it and adding a note about it in the text itself would smooth that.

    It's your BOS Corvus. It's whatever you make of it. A BOS can include anything you want it to. So you don't have to include the Wiccan rede or things like that. Make it yours. You got it hon!

    If it worries you, you could do original and altered next to each other. But I honestly wouldn't worry about it. I used altered material all the time. Take what you need and leave the rest.

    I wondered if he could ever understand that it was a blessing, not a sin, to be graced with more than one love.
    It could be complicated; of course it could be complicated. And it opened one up to the possibility of more pain and loss.
    Still, it was a blessing I would never relinquish. Love, genuine love, was always a cause for joy.

    I'm taking my daughter to Disney in April and getting pretty excited. It's a surprise and I'm not planning to tell her right away. Maybe on the plane, but hopefully not until we're actually there.

    I am also surprising my SO but adding her to the trip. I've already worked it out with her boss. However, she's looking into new jobs, and has an interview, so I may need to tell her sooner rather than later.

    A guy I was engaged to in my college years passed away last week. We hadn't had any contact in about 40 years, but it feels so weird.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    Yeah... One of my college roommates died about a year ago.

    Weird feeling...
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.
