I've been wearied by the month long sitch with the kidlet, so this is feeling like the straw that broke the camel's back. We're closing in on a dx of abdminal migraines - which I didn't even know existed.
Adbominal... migraines?What the heck is that?
I only recently learned of ocular migraines
What's next? Left carpal migraines?
Waiting to learn why your child is in pain, hurts. That's stressful. Waiting for contest results? Trivial by comparison. We're supposed to treat it like sport, remember? This thread -- this whole board -- seems to be dragging down from the wait. It reminds me -- I'm not kidding -- of the Fred Pohl story of travelers trapped falling into the event horizon of a black hole. Things just get stretched out farther and farther, slower and slower...
Well, let's have none of that! This is "the frivolous Jibber-Jabber thread", not the "let's all be serious Results thread". Let's crank up some music. Get out the marshmallow gun and start sniping some random targets! If we're not gonna WRITE! WRITE! WRITE! to pass the time, then let's at least have fun while we wait instead of just sitting around getting all tense.
I guarantee, we'll know something soon. I just feel it. But in the mean time, let's party!
