    :laugh:

    I haven’t bought new shoes in about a year, with the exception of squash shoes and golf shoes for their respective seasons. That’s great restraint on my part!

    I need a new tailor though, so I might as well buy some new bespoke suits and shirts....:D

    :laugh:....nah, I just have too many shoes. I don’t “need” shoes and custom prices are what you’d expect, so I need to prioritize. #firstworldproblems

    Finally. This week has seemed fairly long. Just a feedback today. Might run some numbers on projections to justify the hiring of an additional psychometrist in the system in the not too distant future. After that, volleyball, and bottling some beer this weekend.

    Like, a real baby? This isn't a euphemism for a bm or something?

    If the former, mazel tov!

    HA! Thanks. A real baby. Though a poop beforehand would be a welcome occurrence, too.

    perhaps it depends on what style of brew, and how much of it you're going to enjoy this weekend :) Approaching time for a good stout where I live...

    It's a homemade Pecan Vanilla Bourbon Stout. And, not enjoying it this weekend, it'll need at least a week in the bottle to carbonate and condition before enjoying. Also, gets better with age, so I keep it over the next year, only enjoying a bottle now and then to enjoy the changing tastes.

    Just an update: I had the baby on 11/18. Turned into an unplanned C-section after about 24 hours of labor. Taught the OB about CBT for insomnia while she reassembled my guts and stitched me up. At discharge 4 days later, she told me she was already recommending stimulus control to her patients. Win.

    Hope everyone is having a nice (Thanksgiving if you're American) weekend.

    So... found myself in Cleveland a few weeks ago, and heading to Buffalo this weekend (Go Pats!), both time for “pleasure”vs. business. Any suggestions for the next step on the tour of “cities that have seen better days”?

    As an aside- I highly recommend the Rock and Roll HOF. Not something I thought I’d like as much as I did, but the memorabilia is just incredible.

    Report writing for the next 5-6hr, but it’ll be good. I put on headphones, some good music, and I dig in.

    I just need my chipotle to get here....and then i’ll be set.

    All caught up on reports. I actually started pre-writing my reports for next week so that I can get out of here next week for the holidays and not worry about paperwork awaiting me on my return from travel.

    Well, Rebecca doesn't get up at like 2AM to get as swole as you. So there.

    Report writing day for me as well. Finished one, halfway through another, and have another that I need to finish up (already started as testing took two sessions) and then I'm leaving early for the day, most likely.

    I just need to tell a pilot that he's probably not going back to flying just yet, finish up a couple reports, then pick up some friends at the airport who are visiting for a long weekend.

    And, stay away from the naughty movies @PSYDR

    True. I do wonder who still pays for porn nowadays. As for the pilot, as far as I know, he's grounded until a neurologist gives him the all clear. This eval will not help with that. Mod/Sev EF impairment, Mild imp with attention.

    It's all about the niche markets these days. One of my former patients made a good living as a webcam "actress."

    My husband is traveling next week. Thanks for helping keep the public safe.
