So here's what's up

Tomorow I go in for my radioiodine. I'm not exactly sure how long I'll have to stay in the hospital but I'm guessing 3 days. I really would rather just be at home but, I'll do my best not to lose my sanity there and my Mr.Pea will be with me as the hospital allows and of course on hand to take care of our Peanut(the merciless lizard killer).

I hope everyone has a safe and Happy Halloween. I'll be back as soon as I can and hopefully be able to say that I'm cancerfree. Let's keep our fingers crossed and have faith that this truly is the begining of the end for my experience with cancer. I'm actually extremely lucky. This could have been a lot worse. People have been saying from the begining that if they HAD to choose what kind of cancer to have it would be thyroid cancer because it really is a successful treatment and I sort of got sick of hearing it. But it's true. Things haven't gone exactly as my doctors have said they would and of course because it's me there were some pretty bad complications and all kinds of puddles I had to step in. But I'm learning a lot about myself and about being strong, about sticking up for myself and saying what I feel without fear. I said to my Aunt that there is an enemy inside my body and my body is at war. Well it's NOT going to win I am. Whatever happens. This is just a small part of my experience here and you know what? It's not even half as bad as what so many other people have to go through-especially those who have worse health(and less insurance coverage if at all)and I'm actually thankful for this if you can believe that. Because although I am a spoiled little brat, I'm not someone who has ever really taken how lucky I am for granted and because of this, as long as I remember this and every other hardship I've had to get through in my life(which,frankly, really isn't much thankfully), I never will.

See ya'll soon!

PS I hope ya'll don't think I was being mean making fun of the "goth" look. Actually I sort of envy the individuality of it all.

Message from Peanut

"My mom is not feeling well this week. I stalked, hunted, and killed 3 lizards in the past 4 days. Two on the balcony, one on the second floor stairs. I left the dead bodies by the door so she could see them and be proud of me but it just grossed her out.(She's very difficult to please) My favorite show is Pet Superstar Challenge, I could kick everyone's ass on that show."

Friday Fashion don'ts

Ok Ok I know it's Saturday. But I had planned to blog this yesterday and got too lazy. Friday just sounds better and I was hoping to make this a weekly thing if I could. Or at least something I could post only on Fridays. So just humor me for today and pretend like it's Friday ok......what with all the drinking ya'll probably did last night, the none of you probably even remember what today is anyway so there! So for the first Friday Fashion Don'ts(on Saturday) are these-I only have a couple but trust me-there are a lot and if any of you find some on your own feel free to email me and I'll put them up next Friday(or Saturday-whatever)

Ladies, there will never be a time when these monstrosities would be required. But I'm sure I didn't have to tell you that. Also feel free to send in pictures of the looks of horror on your face upon being confronted with these, um , shoes. I guess they're shoes. If you feel like you haven't seen enough I am not one to deprive you here you go, have at it. :

Ok I know there's no need for my comments on this but I've seen some men wear this kind of stuff....ON Documentaries about pimps. Unless you actually are a pimp, perhaps, fellows, this wouldn't be a good choice for a shirt. If you ARE a pimp, well, by all means have at it. You can buy your pimp uniforms here Although I have to say---why all those strange outfits? Don't business men want to dress for success? Why do pimps like to wear outfits that make them look like Little Red Ridinghood?

Hmmm, something to ponder or perhaps make smalltalk about next time you're at a dinner party and need to break the ice.

That's all I have the energy for right now....

PS.When was the last time you heard someone under 80 say "fellows"? Well good then.

Crack is whack

What's wrong with this picture?

So far looks nice right? Everyone's smiling, beautiful day, hair looks good, looks nice enough to put into a frame right? WRONG! Take a closer look.

Why oh why did this man think that we all wanted to see his behind? Doesn't his wife love him? If she did she would have said to him, "Honey pull your shorts up so you don't walk around the beach showing everyone your ass." She doesn't love him, that's the only reason I can come up with for why every time anyone looks at this picture they're forced to see this man's booty. And no I'm not offended and this picture's not ruined I do know how to crop ok.....

I just thought everyone should know this is a man whose wife doesn't love him. That's all.

PS Unless she thinks it's pretty hot and wanted to share it with the world--in that case I can forgive, butt(haha I'm so damn clever), I respectfully disagree.

Yesterday and today

Yesterday was beautiful and for the first time since my surgery I was feeling good enough to lay by the pool for a while. I made friends with a begging squirrel but my phone doesn't take good pictures so I didn't get a good pic of her, I'll try again tomorow. Here are some of the pool all to myself and a view of the gold course. (No I don't play golf-I don't like the clothes and shoes so that's a no if anyone asks me if I want to try-for now) All of you who live where it's already cold feel free to be a little jealous.

I already told everyone about my trip to the doctor today but for blogging sake---basically I'm healing well, my scar looks good, I'll be going in for radioiodine as soon as they can fit me in. Hoping to hear from them by the end of the week. More news on that as I get it. Here I am again waiting for my surgeon in the exam room.

So today was pretty uneventful except for my appointment and as I endlessly complained about before(and will continue to) I get fatigued easily so I pretty much layed around and even caught some zzz's when I got home. With our Peanut, who kept stealing my spot as usual. Um that's it for today, I'll have some funny pix up soon, I'm still trying to get the hang of this here blog. It's still a newborn baby blog ya'll so just a little more patience k?

Come on!

Are they serious? Is is this truly our image of beauty? This poor girl looks like she's on the verge of death. I probably weigh the same as she does so no one better accuse me of being jealous ok! But I'm 4'11" OK? I'm sure she's a lovely woman but this is ridiculous! OK?! Come on people stop giving us this wierd stuff. I don't know who the "people" is(or is it better grammar to say 'are'-let me know, I welcome the correction) that I'm bitching about I just don't understand why we need to deform our bodies-men and women for the sake of looking like models. If this is the goal, looking like you haven't slept in years and have only been eating paper since birth, ok, count me out. This isn't it? If it is then Marilyn Monroe must be a hog girl.

I'm in a surrrly mood can ya tell? Actually I'm not even surly I'm in disbelief, shock, dismay, confusion, dumbfounded, miscomprehension(is that a word?-well if not it is for now), creeped out. I think creeped out is the best way to put it. Not by the model, it's not her fault. I bet she's beautiful when she's healthy like everyone else, I just feel sorry for her my golly. What happenned? I shouldn't even be shocked, I mean, this isn't the first time I've ever seen an underweight person. I think I have the same reaction when I see someone who is morbidly obese but this is suppossed to be our image of beauty, our goal, dissappoints me....good lord!

Hey, I try to stay trim and fit myself but my number one priorty when I hit the treadmill is health, strength, endurance then looking nice will come with it. It's a good thing I don't have kids yet-how the hell do you explain something like that? To me this is more shocking than Janet Jackson's boob flying out on a Sunday evening--but maybe that's just me. Hey feel free to opine to the contrary but you'll never convince moi!
