I've been trying to get my pool ready. Had the water tested and bought all my chemicals. Now the pump won't prime. I've tried blowing it out with a drain bladder thingie and cleaning debris from the impeller (There was none). I don't have money to blow on a pool guy who takes a month to get the ...
| O-T Lounge|| Question for the OT handy men - drunkenpunkin on 12/29/13 at 9:01 am|
I have this super cool sofa that I'm in love with. It was in storage for years and years, and is in really good condition. Except one thing. The front legs are somewhat ornate and screw on. Except one of the screws is stripped. It stayed on for a bit, but now the screw is just lost somewhere in...
| O-T Lounge|| Kissing random people on the cheek - drunkenpunkin on 9/3/13 at 7:49 am|
I recently moved to a new town, and apparently it's very kissy here. Not like complete strangers are kissing people on the cheek. But like a friend's husband. Or a friend of a friend. Always men. i don't see girls doing it. They do it the first time they meet you, and every time they see you. ...
| O-T Lounge|| Kids staying home alone - drunkenpunkin on 6/18/13 at 2:34 pm|
A friend and I were discussing this earlier today. When we were kids, my brother and I came home after school and let ourselves in with a key we kept in our booksacks. I was 8 when that started and he was 11. Most of our friends did the same. Now, it seems kids have a sitter or after care until ...
| O-T Lounge|| Your strangest FB friend - drunkenpunkin on 6/15/13 at 8:50 am|
Mine: a girl I went to school with who came from a very religious family is now a lesbian. Not a big deal. But, she's in a relationship with 2 other lesbians, and they all live together. The pics posted are beyond weird. Lots of group hugs in one bed. They all wear leather when at home apparen...

Me: Started a new job a few weeks ago and absolutely love it. SO has a big job interview this week. Moving to someplace we want to be soon. My kids are all relatively healthy at the moment. ...
| O-T Lounge|| Job interview question - drunkenpunkin on 6/5/13 at 6:59 pm|
My SO has a 3rd (and hopefully final) interview sometime next week. The guy he's interviewing with sent him an email saying to suggest a time and place next week. He said he's welcome to come to the office but it sounds like he'd rather not do that. How should he respond to this? Seems....differ...
| O-T Lounge|| iPhone question: permanently deleting contacts? - drunkenpunkin on 5/30/13 at 7:26 pm|
I tried to delete a contact the usual way through my contacts. But, whenever I type his name (the same name as one of my best friends) his number still pops up. I went to the apple forums for some help and read that it's in the contacts cache and can only be permanently deleted if I restore my pho...
| O-T Lounge|| OT ruling on men who love cats - drunkenpunkin on 5/25/13 at 9:31 am|
I know I'm going to get a lot of standard OT "ghey" responses, but I have to ask.
I know this seemingly really normal dude. Single, mid 30s, rides Harley's, good job, nothing outwardly unusual. He friends me on FB, and bam! Every post he makes is either a funny cat meme, a cute cat pic/video...
| O-T Lounge|| The OT comes through again - drunkenpunkin on 5/24/13 at 10:20 am|
I want to thank all of y'all that helped me with my BCBS problem yesterday. We don't have a definitive answer yet, but thanks especially to VeniVidiVici, I got a phone call from a very concerned and helpful case manager at 8:01 this morning. I am very hopeful we can get a resolution to this issue ...
| O-T Lounge|| Anyone work for BCBS/LA insurance? Help! - drunkenpunkin on 5/23/13 at 6:57 am|
I'm posting this in hopes that one of y'all might be able to help me. My son has a rare condition, just diagnosed in Jan. He was started on the only treatment available, a "cocktail" of high dose supplements which we had compounded out of state to cover all components and minimize the number of pi...
| O-T Lounge|| OT pool owners - cost of upkeep? - drunkenpunkin on 5/20/13 at 6:58 am|
We are looking at some houses, and I never really considered a pool because I thought it would be outside our budget. But, several homes on our list of potentials have pools. Of course having a pool would be cool, but it would be really beneficial for us as my son will be in aqua therapy twice a w...
| O-T Lounge|| The Parent Bragging Thread - drunkenpunkin on 5/17/13 at 10:01 am|
I HAVE to share this. Negative comments will be ignored as I'm on cloud 9 today.
I just dropped off my son's books at school since he finished his work yesterday. In return, they handed me a folder of awards. Let me preface this by saying this has been the absolute hardest year of my son's lif...
| O-T Lounge|| If you filmed your pets during the day, what do you think you would see? - drunkenpunkin on 5/16/13 at 1:42 pm|
I want to set up a camera to see what it is my dogs do all day when we're not here. Whenever we are coming home, they're both resting their heads on the windowsill looking out, and when they see us, they go ballistic. I just wonder if they sit there like that all day waiting for us to come home....
| O-T Lounge|| Another Northshore school question - drunkenpunkin on 5/16/13 at 6:27 am|
I recently took a job in Covington, and we are looking to move. We are planning on renting for 6 months to a year so we can save a little more money to buy. The rents in the more desirable areas are way too high to accomplish that goal. We could pay it, but our timeline would extend beyond a year...

| O-T Lounge|| Question for the OT handymen - drunkenpunkin on 4/15/13 at 10:07 am|
For the past week my washer has been doing this horrible loud squeak when it agitates. I'm not stuffing it full or anything. It washes just fine, but the noise is unbearable. And I'm pretty sure its not a good thing. What could this be? And how can I fix it? TIA....

| O-T Lounge|| Would you sell out for a job? - drunkenpunkin on 3/4/13 at 1:46 pm|
Let's say you are offered a lucrative position in your field, but the company operates on the opposite side of the fence from you on the political spectrum. The job is a career maker and would be good for your family. But, you know you would have to continually endure comments from others in your ...

There's a lady I used to work with who is in her mid-late 40s, no kids, never been married who is obsessed with all things Disney. She goes twice a year and every morning posts like 10 different pictures on FB like "I'd rather be at the Magic Kingdom" or "Disney: a state of mind" and a countdown of...
| O-T Lounge|| Things you wish would just go away - drunkenpunkin on 3/3/13 at 9:13 am|
1) celebrity worship
2) reality shows
3) facial piercings
4) tanning beds and the oompaloompas they create (or at least people learning when to say when)
5) Saying things like "this is a great space" (I hate you, house hunters) and "that color really makes it pop"
6) Flat billed hats.
| O-T Lounge|| Teachers who teach inaccurate information - drunkenpunkin on 1/11/13 at 8:29 am|
Posted on the poli board. My kids frequently come home misinformed about things. My son told me all about how we won the Vietnam war. Knew nothing about the capture of Saigon. And this is like the 3rd time this year his history teacher has given him half information.
Daughter came home upset ...
| O-T Lounge|| Update for those who have been praying for my son - drunkenpunkin on 1/9/13 at 10:47 pm|
We saw the geneticist the other day. My son has mitochondrial disease, but fortunately a non-terminal variety. It's a complicated diagnosis, and life will never be easy for him. But, he is here and with treatment should get better than he is right now. Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers....
| O-T Lounge|| The best free entertainment you get during your day (other than TD) - drunkenpunkin on 12/7/12 at 6:16 am|
There is a rabbit that lives under my shed, and when I let my dogs out in the morning, they try to squeeze their fat asses under there to get to him. He sits just beyond their reach and watches, totally unperturbed and looking bored. After a few minutes, like he's doing them a favor, he takes off ...
| O-T Lounge|| The weirdest people you've ever met by region (U.S. only) - drunkenpunkin on 12/4/12 at 9:11 am|
Totally generalizing, of course. But mine would be 1) Michigan. Weird, zero personality, cold. And 2) East TN. Most boring people I've ever been around. You could set them on fire and they wouldn't even get excited. ...

I had an infection in my gallbladder and had to have emergency surgery Saturday. Everything went well and I was able to come home later that evening. I'm feeling a lot better as far as pain. Just sore and tired, which is to be expected with surgery. But, I am constantly nauseated. I thought it ...
