Really frustrated with Facebook. First- I thought the whole "ticker" think was uber creepy, but got used to it. Then, I embraced timeline, and actually really like it. Now, a change to the photo viewer?!?! I really don't understand why Facebook keeps on changing things. -grumble-

I always say Twitter is one of the two things in life, I don't believe in. But with each change FB makes, I'm becoming more of a believer. I might just make an account to keep up with celebrities; plus, I make a lot of posts that are probably more twitter appropriate anyways...

When all else fails, a spoonful of sugar always gets rid of them for me. Something about the effect the sugar has on the diaphragm or something like that, not exactly sure of the scientific explanation. Usually I start with holding my breath.

i hear you 110% i still haven't embraced timeline. i don't mind the new photo viewer but there was nothing wrong with my old one! plain and simple. don't fix it if it isn't broken! if they want to fix the photos then make it so you can't download anyone's photos unless they are yours or you are personally tagged in one! that is it! other then that.....leave my facebook alone! as it is i have a hard time getting into my game requests!

never stop learning, as new things are discovered everyday.

Know it's probably late for the hiccups advice, but next time grab a big glass or bottle of fluids, preferably get a straw, and start drinking and don't stop until the glass or bottle is empty. Just try not to drink something that might give you the hiccups again.

hic-ups are normally caused by a bend in your diaphragm. try to do some stretches while holding your breath. make sure you fully expand your lungs and then bring your hands above your head while your hands are interlocked. do this a couple times, take a drink and hold your breath. this always helps. make sure your back is completely straight. or it will not work. i suggest standing up to do them or sitting in a chair with a straight back that doesn't recline.

Hold your hand down hard against your diaphragm area to get rid of hiccups. It stops the diaphragm from vibrating or something like that.

It's already Thursday afternoon here. Ah, time differences.

My rant: I really should be preparing for our holiday tomorrow, but after two practically sleepless nights I just can't summon the energy. Whinge. And we leave the house at 5:15 am.
On the plus side, holiday!

Life.

Rant: Why, oh people with the car, if you know I want to go somewhere in the afternoon, do you leave for lunch and not come back until 4 in the afternoon, when it's too late to go? You do this to me all the time. Grrr.

Rant Two: Incommunicative brothers!!! We knew my brother was going to Berlin in February so we've been trying to get a hold of him to tell him safe trip but we haven't heard from him since the 2nd of January (he just lives in NYC for pity's sake, not in the middle of a desert with no cell phone or internet service). Today we get an e-mail. He's been in Berlin since the 26th of January and won't be back until the end of February. -___- Gee, thanks for letting us know, it's only been a month since we heard from you. *mumbles unkind things under breath* This is why my mother starts letting her imagination get the best of her and says things like "I just know he got mugged and dumped into the Hudson." Now it's gonna be, "I just know he got mugged and dumped into the Rhine." Who'd wanna mug him anyway? He dresses like a bum.
