So, today I got to hear the story about the time my grandfather briefly considered drowning a lifeguard.

Apparently one summer my grandparents took their 8 children to the beach. The two eldest boys (15 and 17 respectively) were instructed to help keep an eye on the younger children and not swim out too far. Of course, being irresponsible idiots, they swam out pretty far anyway and my uncle Steven, who was 11 and a poor swimmer tried to follow them. Eventually Steven hit a rip tide and would have been in real trouble if not for the fact that my grandfather had been following his sons almost immediately after they took off (probably to threaten to drown them himself for blatantly disobeying him, but that's rather beside the point) and started hauling Steven to safety. Of course, Steven was frantic and clinging to my grandfather's limbs, so my grandfather ended up stopping at a buoy halfway to give Steven something other than his arms to hang onto for a moment. This was about the time the lifeguard finally arose from his blanket and started yelling through a megaphone to get off the damned buoy because that is totally against the rules. He apparently continued to berate them the entire time they were swimming back.

So I had my ears syringed this morning. I'd had a lot of ringing in my ears, and I'd been having difficulty making out words when people were speaking to me, and I thought my ears were probably just blocked up, but when I went to my doctor (who's a good doctor) he gave me a referral and told me to book myself in for a hearing test. I did that, but the guy at the hearing-test place told me that before I had a hearing test I should go back to my doctor and get my ears syringed. So I did that this morning. Suddenly the world seems to have a lot more sibilants in it. It's disconcerting.

Also, I had my E.C.G. and that was more-or-less normal, but apparently the electrical impulses that control my heart are having difficulty getting through to one side of my heart. So now I have to wear a heart monitor and hope that in the 24 hours I'm wearing it my heart goes THBBBBPPPPPPPPTTTTT, which it does sometimes and which prompted this whole doctor-E.C.G.-heart monitor thing in the first place.

But the doctor still says it's very minor and probably nothing to worry about.

What does it mean to get your ears syringed? did you have fluid built up that needed to be removed?

No, wax build-up. The doctor gets a huge metal syringe (like the ones you see in horror movies that are meant to symbolise "BIG EVIL FUCKING CRAZY SYRINGE MAN"), only instead of being pointy it's pretty large-bore. The doctor fills the syringe up with water, gets you to hold a small surgical basin under your ear, sticks the syringe in your ear and basically squirts all the water in there. The water builds up pressure against your ear-drum, which forces the wax out. Then the doctor give you a tissue and tells you to tip the water out of your ear.

It feels rather like having a high-pressure hose blasted directly into your ear. Because I guess that's basically what it is.

Congratulations on not going deaf!

The last time I had that happen to me I was seven and I was given a transformer as a bribe/reward for not freaking out and trying to kill the doctor or something.

It was a pretty good transformer, too.

I've had to have my ears syringed quite a few times since tubes were put in because I would get terrible ear infections when I was little.  The last time it happened they flushed out the last tiny pieces (I think it was around the time Fire Emblem first came out in the US).  

Any way, I also had to have some vein in my nose sealed shut because of excess bleeding.  They took something extremely cold (what's that stuff that they guy was frozen with in the 2nd Terminator?) and shoved it up my nose.  It felt like the inside of my nose was being welded shut, never a pleasant experience.

On a more serious note: either it's a mistake or, no offense, you have no one to blame but yourself or your housemates. Bills come monthly and shit gets lost in the mail a lot. If you're living on your own, you need to keep track of these things and not rely on this shit getting to you in any reasonable fashion. If it's been two months since you paid your electric bill and you haven't seen a notice, you should probably call the power company or check your online statement.

Actually, power bills with Ergon Energy come every 3 months so it is quite easy to lose track. Also I only moved in about 3 months ago so I had no idea when the next one was meant to be coming in.

And if we lost the bill, we should have gotten an overdue notice in the mail BEFORE they decided to just come and cut off our power.

I used to have tubes in my ears too. The last time something like what Harry described happened to me, the doc told me to tilt my head sideways, pour peroxide in my ear, wait thirty or so seconds, and then pour it out over a sink or something. It is disgusting, but it works.

I had to have my ears syringed when I was very little. I did not handle it well.

While we're talking about children's medical stories:

When I was not knee-high to a horse, I fought off a trio of doctors with a sword. They were trying to operate on my eyes, the bastards! I'd have none of that shit, however, and gallantly entered mortal combat, outnumbered and trapped. Thankfully, the virtuous nurse came to my rescue and I dunno what happened after that, I was pretty fucking stoned from the anesthetic.

It was because of an ancient magical lantern that they were all touching which caused them to switch places with actual samurai who were also holding it in feudal Japan.

I've had pretty bad ear troubles my whole life. When I was little (like, 2 or 3) it became apparent that I couldn't hear very well and so needed to have grommets put in my ears (though I don't really understand why and have never took the time to find out). When I was about 12 my brother was dunking me in the pool and my earplugs (which I had to wear while swimming) fell out, the pressure of the water against my ears puncturing my left eardrum. I woke up that night in terrible pain and with blood leaking copiously from my ear. Eventually I got a skin graft to patch up the hole as it didn't heal itself but that didn't take as the skin graft ended up creating yet another hole that was eventually fixed up with another skin graft. As a result of all this, my left ear doesn't hear that well, especially high pitched noises, also it throws my directional hearing off by about 50% (it was tested in a biopsychology class I took in first year) though I guess it isn't helped by me being in a small room once a week while three other people around me play extremely loud music for about 2 hours straight.

I've also had my ears syringed, it was one of the single most uncomfortable experiences I've ever had, not actually painful just really very uncomfortable. It is second only to the trips I had to make to my ear, nose and throat surgeon who would have me tilt my head, then insert a long metal rod with a hook at the end into my ear (my left ear canal is now dead straight due to the skin grafts) and drag out clumps of wax.

Fluid building up behind the eardrum, I believe.

When I was a young'un I always used to get fluid buildup behind the eardrum or something as a result of almost constant ear infections that were in themselves a run-on from tonsillitis problems. I had the grommets put in to help the fluid drain out (tasty, I know...) So yeah, that may have been why.

I always feel like I'm the only person in the world who saw the third live-action movie, where they go back in time to feudal Japan for no apparent reason.

I bought that and the second on DVD on impulse a few weeks back. I keep meaning to watch them both and indulge in some serious nostalgia tripping.

Pog Dead,

I had a headache last night, so I went to sleep. I thought that would help it. It was about 1130 at night and I worked at 630am today, so I was like "eh, I'll get more sleep get rid of this headache blah blah blah" and then I wake up at around 330am or so with the headache having upgraded itself to being terrible. I layed in bed and tried to fall back asleep, but I layed in the dark for 45 minutes. Finally I sat up and took some asprin (with dr pepper since that's what was near my bed). I closed my bedroom door as I suspected that my body didn't want to fall asleep because it didn't feel right sleeping with my door opened. And I fell asleep.

I've never woken up in the middle of the night because of a headache.
What the fuck is that.

One time, I had a plug the size of my whole goddamn pinky up in that shit. No joke.

Ninja Turtles 3 is as disgustingly underrated as Ninja Turtles 2 is disgustingly overrated. I saw all three at Wal-Mart a couple years back for $8 a pop and picked them all up. After watching through them all, I realized 3 was actually pretty good and 2 was actually pretty crap. First one's still the best, though.

Ok guys. I told a few people in Gabbly about this yesterday, but the story has continued, so I will tell yesterday's part again.

Yesterday a guy came in my shop and asked about his application status and blah blah blah and I told him our manager was off and he'd have to come in tomorrow to talk to her. Said guy attends the "design college" next door. Now, a lot of the people who come from over there are nice, but very few give me the impression that they are the brightest crayon in the box. I know that's not a nice thing to say, but it's true, and this guy was definitely not that sharp. He then proceeded to awkwardly flirt with me for 20 minutes. About 15 min into it was when I realized he was trying to flirt as he stepped aside as I helped a customer and then resumed his mostly one sided conversation on Mel Brooks movies. It was a rather painful experience. He finally went away after I said I wasn't a fan of AC/DC. (Note: I like Mel Brooks movies, but I was just not attracted to this guy and I didn't appreciate the fact that he was taking up my time at work and being awkward.) After this guy comes in the Staring Guy who stares at me and makes horrible conversation and annoys the shit out of me. To which I shout in my head, "Fucking hell. Leave me alone."

Well this morning he came back. Luckily I wasn't here, so I heard this from my manager. He was asking about his application and wanted to know if he could get an interview. He applied for part time and we need another full time person. My manager explained this and he said he was availible for full time, he was here, even though most of his time would be sent in class. She tried to explain to him what full time meant, but he didn't get it, but eventually he left. Then I come in and she tells me this story. I run off to the bank to get change and I come back and she said he came back again and poked his head in looking for me. AGH.

As I told gabbly, I'm too mean to flirt with when I'm working. I may not say mean things, but they go through my head. So for your own good, dear people of the internet, do not try to flirt with me at work.

Hahah, I had to do this last year. It's pretty damned nasty, for one, and is also the weirdest feeling in the world. It's weird though, because I use Q-tips fairly frequently. It's crazy how much can build up in there.

Also Ozy, that's right! Completely forgot about that. Mostly what I remember about that movie is that the samurai who switched places with them were really into hockey, for some reason...?

There's a smelly guy who keeps doing basically the same kind of crap to this one poor clerk that works at a book store I frequent. I believe I've mentioned him on Gabbly before; his flirting tactics seem to consist of either looking at her boobs or his own feet while talking about computers or the Vikings. He always seems to be there when I stop in, but it could just be because I only go on Fridays due to the drive; I hope for her sake that he actually just isn't there nearly every day, although it would explain why she always kind of looks like she's thinking of immolating herself. I'm dying to ask her about it, but I figure she's already got one nosey customer to deal with, so I guess it'll remain a mystery for now.

Yep, I never use swabs for the inside of my ears and I've never needed any sort of syringing. Your ears can do a good enough job of clearing themselves out on their own provided you avoid shoving it all back where it came from; believe it or not, your earwax is slowly pushed out of your ear at nearly imperceptible intervals all the time anyway via natural processes.

Ear trouble thread,

I've had a lifetime of ear problems, too!  My story's remarkably similar to Jimmy's, actually.  I had three tube surgeries for recurring otitis media as a little kid (they allow air into the middle ear to prevent infection--supposedly, of course), then had a ruptured eardrum that wouldn't heal on its own, so my surgeon reconstructed my eardrum from skin behind the ear.

Then, five years later, I developed a non-cancerous tumor that enveloped the eardrum.  My surgeon then had to remove the whole thing and reconstruct the eardrum again.

Now, I've got 70% hearing loss in my right ear and have to wear a hearing aid.  Surprisingly, it's not primarily a structural thing.  It's an inherited sensory-neuro thing; after the surgeries, I still had normal hearing in that ear.  This is a pain in the ass for two reasons: (1) it cannot be potentially healed by another surgery, and (2) I'm likely to lose much more of my hearing.  My grandfather and mother are both effectively deaf. 

Oh well.  I guess all I can do is cross my fingers and hope for dramatically improved cochlear implant technology by the time I'm 45 and going completely deaf.

If she simply doesn't try to get to sleep before then at all, yes, it's not insomnia, although it's not really necessarily laziness either, since yeah, getting around 10 hours of sleep isn't really that unusual. But difficulty in getting to sleep despite feelings of tiredness (onset insomnia) is pretty common and often associated with anxiety disorders, so I wouldn't go around throwing stones quite yet.


Also, I used to suffer from really bad terminal insomnia, which contributed to some anxiety which then led to onset insomnia. Onset insomnia, as it happens, doesn't mix very well with terminal insomnia. It was like a not very fun at all feedback loop.

It's not insomnia, but I don't see how getting 8 hours of sleep is lazy.

because i can't do math in my head, that's why.

    • tumblrs are cool right

i do have difficulty getting to sleep despite feelings of tiredness. it's not like i'm not trying at all. and i have minor anxiety issues. as for the whole getting 8-9 hours of sleep thing...this has only started recently. (a couple of months ago)
throughout high school and my first year of university i'd be getting 5-6 hours of sleep on a regular basis. sometimes less. i'm not as lazy as i sound in some of my posts really.

  • Dealing with it.

no, you're lazier  :-D

In all seriousness, I will get about 4 hours of sleep sometimes even when I don't mean to. I just have so much to do that I don't have time to sleep.

Of course, I do sometimes get to the point of unending tired and fall asleep in the middle of the day.

haha i know, i was just harshing your gig.


speaking of not-sleeping; prepare some really stupid and incoherent post from me over the next week or two. last night i decided to quit smoking (again) so in day or two my insomnia will have kicked into full-gear and i'll be a bumbling zombie for a while (assuming i stick to my guns and don't smoke).

don't say i didn't warn you.

Dear Blog Thread,

I enjoy my new job as a tech support emplyee in a call center for a VOIP service, but I just spent over an hour getting something done that should have taken 10 - 15 minutes because they kept lying to me. In some moments, it was hilarity, but here are the notes for the call.

"Lucyle's friend called in to get help with initial setup. Checked connections. Powercycled. Got a laptop hooked up to the DTA and checked Firmware. SIP was empty. Rapid Assisted. Fixed SIP settings. Rebooted. Test call rang on my end but did not on his end. Had him trace phone cord. Plugged into the wall. Had him plug it into the DTA. Same result. Realized he had plugged the phone into itself. Finally got it sorted out and he got a ring. His test call was also successful. All set."

Your addicted reader,

Stephen King
