    Hey, I didn’t think I’d make it this far. I’ll take any time I can get. Hopefully now it’s a fuck ton more. My husband told me yesterday he thinks I’ll freak out when I hit 40. I said huh? That would mean I survived 20 years of my illness. Let’s party.

    hello from 34. I feel 65 some days because of my health, but It’s gotten so much better though, 34 isn’t too damn bad.

    This has been going on so long now that I have like a cringe reaction to the word “jab” at this point. I feel like I’m stuck in Groundhog Day and everyone knows how to get out but is like nah.

    I’ll get back to ya. It was on my husbands debit and I already threw away the receipt. Haha I know it was a $200 pre-tax order for 2 1gs of extract, 2 packs of mints, and 3.5G of flower. edit: the other dispensary we used to use now tells you the total with tax on your online orders. I wish the one we use now did

    That’s about what I pay in PA. Anything less than $50 for a half gram cart is a deal. PA doesn’t tax medical purchases though

    Good fucking lord. That is robbery. I literally just bought .5g live resin carts from probably the best supplier you can get here in Michigan for 4/$100. Typically they are like $33.33 to $40 a piece, pre-tax. Illinois is fucking nuts.

    Jelani Day was confirmed to be the body found in the river here :(

    I feel like the Petito case definitely put some pressure on the Jelani Day case here. The body found in the river in my county did end up being him. Yesterday they released his wallet had been found “some time ago” and that an ISU lanyard had been found near the river. I hope our coroner regrets making this statement the day he was found: “the body found in the Illinois River and the missing persons case of Jelani Day are separate from each other.”

    My mom (also was an EMT) physically fought her sister once over car safety. My aunt would watch us during the day. She would bring my younger sister, me, and her two girls (similar ages) with her to recycle cans in the town 15 miles over. None of us were belted. She drove a Jimmy. We’d pick up Happy Meals for the way home and the 4 of us would sit in the cargo area and eat. The spare tire was in there covered in felt so it looked like a table. The thought of that today horrifies me and I get why my Mom did what she did, especially since my aunt never drove less than 85mph on bumpy back roads.

    Growing up in a tiny place with no cops and no traffic, my parents would let us “drive” on their laps to my grandpas house. Literally 75 yards away around the corner. My sister does the same shit today when they come home to visit with her 7 year old. We’re still a small town but a lot more semi-traffic driving through and we do have cops here frequently. When my niece is with me it’s a HARD NO and she doesn’t handle it well. I’m not putting her in danger. I’m not putting my driving record in danger (because of the ambulance) It irritates the fuck out of me.

    What occupational reasons are you talking about? I've never worn my seatbelt while driving a forklift at my job but I still put it on every time I'm in my own vehicle.

    I’ve been on a few BAD accident calls. They more often than not have two common denominators: no seatbelt and a cell phone.

    Continuing on from yesterday's good news about negative covid tests, my whole family tested negative on Saturday. My wife and oldest son were showing symptoms but it seems to just be a cold. My daughter had a potential exposure at school last week, but she was able to return to today because of the negative test and no symptoms. And my youngest son (3 and a half) just asked/volunteered to get tested. I wasn't showing any symptoms and didn't have any known exposure so I didn't get tested.

    I’ll say it. Fuck the McRib. My hubby went to Columbia for a couple of years after HS and if we could afford it, we’d ditch the building plans and move to Chicago. In an instant.

    I just want to be able to DoorDash or Instacart here. Or not drive 15 miles to a gas station. Otherwise, it’s fine. We’re going to build just outside of our village limits in the next 10 years. I hate having neighbors.

    The thing that made me go back (instead of just brushing it off) to reading about the news story was the fact that the dude just left by himself and went home to Florida without her; immediate thought is, wtf?? That was what was so bizarre to me at first; sucks it's ended this way. Now to figure out the dude's role in all this

    100% true. The missing man in my area is a black male grad student. Of course the paper made it known the last place he was seen was a dispensary. As if the retail location fucking matters.

    Did anyone actually see him or did his parents just say yeah he’s been here. I don’t normally follow true crime at all but this one is just yikes. There’s a missing person in my area currently that isn’t getting nearly the coverage. His car was found in a wooded area in my county but he hasn’t been found. They did find a body in the river but said it wasn’t connected.

    Same here - I was afraid of this part of the outcome, but it seemed incredibly likely with how he is/was behaving. I'm hoping they'll either find him or his body soon.
