@Lynnerizer Yeah, but it’s 4:30 AM and I was supposed to be doing a sleep study, but my CPAP machine decided to stop working when I tried to begin. So now I’m sitting here with this uncomfortable pulse/ox meter pinching my finger, with my oxygen on, totally tired but desperate for a doll or an IRK, and I have to be up in less than 3 hours, and I am so tired. waaah waaah waaah.
(seriously, I’m wiped out, I have to crash.)
Oh jeeze I hate those sleep study things, i’ve been putting mine off for over a year! Last year I had to have a EEG, they also had me video tape myself the entire 48 hours. I got to watch myself fall asleep while I was eating, oh boy the laughs were endless from the peanut gallery. Turned out to be inconclusive or leaving more questions, extra brain activity on one part but no narcolepsy and THAT’S what they were looking for. I’m curious, what’s your oxygen at rest/sleep? My guys been checking mine the past week since i’m extremely noisy and it’s been between 89-92. Probably time to go for my study. There’s NO way I could sleep with that mask though, so what’s the sence of it?
Hopefully you got good results from your sleep study! Fingers crossed!
Did you ever score a original Kool-hand-Joe today or an IRK, I lost track along the way! As for me, NOT a one!
@Lynnerizer I don’t know if the data I got for them is even useable, since I didn’t have my cpap working. (I later figured out the issue, but it was too late) They were just trying to find out if my latest lung collapse has changed my baseline O2 sats at all. I don’t think it has. And yeah, I have a hell of a time sleeping with the cpap mask on.
I did not get an IRK or a doll/art piece. Deeply disappointed about the latter.
Oh wow, a collapsed lung is no joke! Sorry to hear you’re going through such difficult health issues. You definitely have my good thoughts and prayers! Hopefully @Koolhandjoe will be restocking his Etsy in the near future, wouldn’t that be nice!
Why do I get the feeling this rogue employee is the same one who snuck a pair of earrings made of bloody doll hands into one of our orders and scribbled ‘Cool Hand Joe’ on the bag in sharpie? Love the awkward and creepy vibe. How do I get a job creating monstrosities out of random surplus dolls?
JEEZE! As soon as I saw it I pressed buy and it goes straight to sold out with the time being 19:40 minutes left on the clock. I NEVER HAD A CHANCE!! Sounds like a issue to be taken up with my internet server, that’s freakin rediculous! And I pay for high speed internet!!
@Lynnerizer We pay for premium high speed blah blah blah- but in reality, we get like 25% of the promised speed. It’s such a load of crap. But as bad as it is, the ISP we use is the best option here. Pisses me off so bad.
@Lynnerizer@Pony Are you guys using a wireless router? Maybe try a device connected directly to the modem/wired into the switch ports on the back of the router. A lot people under estimate how much speed loss wireless internet can yield.
Also, it can be just luck. You literally need to have the reaction time of a seasoned video-game nerd to get these sometimes.
@er1c@Lynnerizer Plugging in to the box doesn’t do a bit of good when you’re on the crappiest satellite service ever. It’s not us, it’s them. I used to get IRKs in pretty much every mehrathon until we moved into this signal wasteland. We have zero cel phone service here, our calls have to be done through the crappy internet. It’s horrible. We’re hoping Starlink will rescue us when it becomes available here.
I’m plugged in, all hard wired up in this house! My mother-in-law has a wirerd router and a dish out in the yard. Not sure if the dish has anything to do with the router or IF it’s only for the tv? (Yeah i’m feeling a bit dumb right now!) Pretty sure the router and Dish are totally seperate! I was able to snag 1 irk since i’ve been here, the same amount of time i’ve been on meh, only about a year and a half. Maybe next time there’s a mehrathon i’ll run down to my home and see if I have any better luck there. It’s only 1.5 miles down the road but now i’m definitely curious!
