Re: Dear Diary/Journal/Bob 3.0

What antibiotic are you taking? PM me if you have questions. I'm hoping you looked up dosing so you are at least getting adequate treatment. The worst cellulitis I've ever seen was from a cat bite, so I would definitely be careful!

Re: got problems? (the non bob advice thread)

I asked for boring stuff for graduation (medical instruments, books, etc). Personally, I feel like getting the diplomas framed is a good choice because that's something you'll dread paying money for later, and nice framing is expensive! I still have all my diplomas / certificates / awards unframed a...

Re: Girly Stuff

Cranberry has only been suggested as a possible preventative, but will do nothing once you have active cystitis. I wouldn't count on hydration and cranberry to do anything. Unfortunately, this is one where you really have to bite the bullet and pee in a cup. :/

The Fire isn't e-ink, it's typical LED touch screen much like that of iPad/nook Color. If I was looking for a tablet, then Fire would be fine. It's probably more of a Kindle color plus some extras (i.e., "souped-up" Kindle) than a true tablet, but for the price you can't go wrong as compared to an i...
