    Solution: get a dolly. Mom uses it to prop up the fridge while I screw up the little feet. We are then able to roll it out, with effort, and I barely manage to reach the outlet. Once it's done and the fridge appears to be working, call Dad in relief and tell him that the display has stopped flashing and clicking, and he casually mentions "oh yeah, maybe I shoulda tried that when I took the fridge out to clean it a couple weeks ago."
    Mom and I stare at each other.

    Thank you! ^^ I fixed my helmet so it should heal up by the end of the week, fortunately. I just wish that I’d noticed in time to keep it from happening in the first place.

    the doctor canceled my appointment due to weather. apparently the roads are truly appalling and the clinic is ditching all nonessential function. while i understand they don't do this lightly, having to wait another two weeks to ask "wtf???" about my numb leg makes me want to scream all day and launch myself into space.

    12th day sick. My throat's so torn apart a teeny part of me is scared of it scarring from near-constant coughing and bursts of acid.

    Closing 5 tabs, bookmarking one of them, and quitting firefox has taken literally almost 45 minutes. I’m going to restart my laptop now so I can maybe finish watching the dub of mp100 sometime next fucking week when I finish logging back in to my account!

    God I need a new computer.

    Wormwitch I'm literally Mulder.

    The gnat problem at work has gotten so bad I’ve inhaled a few. Meanwhile my boss is like ~this is fine~ because ~other places have them!~ I hate the tone she uses when she says this.

    My father woke me up around around by stomping around the apartment and opening and closing drawers loudly. Then he came into my room because he wanted to know how much I made this year??? :why:

    The gum pocket around my wisdom tooth is infected again. I now have a date for the extraction, but it's not for over a month, and it's going to frustrate me anyway because they're only taking one tooth and I'm gonna be left feeling lopsided.

    Charlie I got no strings to hold me down

    @Everett
    Understandable. Just think though, if people offer food they usually really want you to eat it. A lot of people have the idea they won't be a good guest if you don't eat, so in a weird way you're doing them... a favour??
    (I've been on both sides of it. It's hard but people generally take food eating as like... acceptance of you being ok, and accommodated, they want to share)

    I'm snuffly and my throat is sore (although throat's...less sore now), and no matter how much I blow my nose or try to clear it, it won't get less snuffly.

    There's actually a whole lot of articles and research (link leads to post on Bibliosphere's tumblr, where a bunch of articles are linked and this is discussed) on the subject! Food is what binds us together, as a community; eating together increases social bonds, eating food someone has provided for you increases trust and connection.
