Comments for Swistle https://www.swistle.com I acknowledge my luckiness, without giving up my claim to the suckiness Mon, 21 Aug 2017 17:04:43 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.8.1 Comment on Tooth Extraction and Implant: Nitrous Oxide vs. General Anesthesia by Erin https://www.swistle.com/2017/08/02/tooth-extraction-laughing-gas-vs-total-knockout/#comment-735915 Mon, 21 Aug 2017 17:04:43 +0000 https://www.swistle.com/?p=11736#comment-735915 So I did not read all of the comments but will add this in… I had an extraction done earlier this year (implant a few months later but still waiting on the crown piece) and they did not offer to put me completely out but DID offer the “happy pill” which they explained was like Xanax. It completely relaxed me to the point that I was falling asleep in the chair during the procedure (I did have a gum graft done at the same time). The only thing that I had to do was have someone drive me to the appointment and drive me home. It was no added cost and if that is an option I would highly recommend. They still did the usual numbing cream and shots but I was much less worried throughout the whole procedure.

Is this maybe a regional thing? Or maybe it’s just that the odds of being a swim-legging-wearing-person is somehow correlated with being a Swistle reader?

Maybe it’s the exposure to the chlorine that kills elastics so quickly in swimsuits?

We have a pool and I’d see a good deal on a size my daughter would be the next year, but she can’t resist wearing the new thing, even if it’s too big for her to try it out, then it would get put away once even she saw it wasn’t the right size yet… only to find it all crunchy and unusable the next year. Now I remind her of this when I get swimsuits that I know don’t fit yet and they get packed away right away in her “too big” box.

Comment on Sticker Mosaics by Jill https://www.swistle.com/2017/08/17/sticker-mosaics/#comment-735908 Sun, 20 Aug 2017 12:03:40 +0000 https://www.swistle.com/?p=11777#comment-735908 I bought one of these from your link! Just came back to say that. Haha. I don’t think these would really interest my kids but we are going to visit some friends who have three daughters (8, 6, and 4) and they are attention-to-detail kinds of kids who will sit and do quiet activities (mine are…not) so I ordered it and it came and I will be taking it to them. My kids saw the book and didn’t really express any dismay that it was not for them, so I’m interested to see once they see other kids doing it if it’s something they would actually like in practice. Thanks for the great idea, Swistle!

I think the leggings could go with or without the bikini bottoms, but I’m not sure; I wore them for a little extra comfort. But the little attached skirt covers that region, so I’d think they’d be fine without.

Comment on College Student Finances and First-Aid Kits by irene https://www.swistle.com/2017/07/27/college-student-finances-and-first-aid-kits/#comment-735906 Sun, 20 Aug 2017 09:22:38 +0000 https://www.swistle.com/?p=11724#comment-735906 I found your website by searching about pillar candles (I just bought one because it was on sale and I liked the smell, and I don’t know what do do with it apart from light it… I mean, can I just put it on a ceramic plate? Like a plate I use for food?). Google brought me to your post about pillar candles not burning properly. I enjoyed your sense of humour, so clicked to the homepage to read your latest posts.

Just want to say I love that you and Paul are having so much discussion with Rob about the financial thing. When I went off to college, my dad paid my accommodation and tuition fees directly to the institution, so I only needed money for food and other minor miscellaneous stuff (I lived on campus, so did not need transportation). Dad said I should spend only about $10 a day for food, which multiplied by 31 days came up to $310/month and he decided to be generous and topped it up to $350. This was 20 years ago. There was no discussion and I didn’t dare to say I might need more; it did look fairly doable on paper. This was very much the family dynamic, and I do wish that there had been more discussion about various issues affecting the family (and me) instead of just having my parents lay down the law. It’s a different parenting style, that’s for sure!

Did you use them in a pool type situation, or lake or sandy beach? I almost ordered a pair but I typically end up sitting and getting buried in very fine sand on vacation and the lands end bottoms I have trap and keep the sand inside (all suits have at this beach) and I am leery of having sand all up and down my legs. And did you wear the bikini bottoms for personal comfort or because the swim leggings need that extra bit? (Like I have to wear a bikini top under a rash guard to hold down the chest area).
Thanks for the update!

Boo for early morning spiders. And for early morning peeing, with which I am exasperatingly familiar.

I also wouldn’t buy more now, swim material tends to get weird after a few years, even in the best of storage. I doubt that they’ll stop selling them entirely as I’ve seen them in quite a few places. And also, they. are. awesome.
