Random again

-I went to my OB/GYN yesterday. One of the patients cussed everyone out because she was there for 45 minutes. She asked if there was anyone in the office that she could bill for her time since they would be billing her insurance company for their time. She was heavily pregnant so everyone was being so annoyingly patronizing to her. I thought she had a point, why the hell do they make appointments and then make you wait 10 years in the waiting room with 50 year old magazines and a TV tuned to the 24hour Matlock station? I only had to wait 5 minutes so I thought best to keep my mouth shut.

-And since I'm on the topic, my OB/GYN moved into a new office. It's really nice. I can tell that they really wanted to create a spa-like environment with the sea-tone colors, soft robes, all the way down to the aroma therapy. I appreciate the effort and I consider myself privileged to have a nice surrounding for such an uncomfortable activity. But there's no way in hell, a green jewel-toned robe, some shell decorations and the scent of plumeria is going to make me forget that I'm naked from the waist down and someone I barely know is poking around down there, sorry!

-It's a conspiracy against me I know it. Dairy Queen purposely invented the Oreo Cookie Blizzard to ruin my life. They will not stop until cellulite takes over my thighs and my belly looks like I'm due to give birth to full grown triplets. They are scheming against me with their perfect combination of cookie and ice cream. Scheming, damn them.

-Today is the last day of my self-imposed sick quarantine. I'm glad to be feeling back to myself again. Tomorrow I can go back to working out.

-It's been 3 weeks since my last cup of coffee. I don't like being addicted to anything. I don't like the feeling of needing something and that's why I quit. Plus it feels gross to drink hot drinks in the summer anyway.

-Peanut makes the best face when he's in 'crazy mode', that state of mind he gets in when he starts running back and forth down the hall, high jumping onto the bed. I've never seen the same joy on anyone else's face that I know. At what age to people lose that ability, to really experience explosions of happiness over something as simple as jumping?

-I would much rather be a back up singer than a lead. Most people want to be the star. But I'd much prefer to be the hot chick with a tambourine in a slutty outfit and some hooker boots singing "ooh la" and, "yeah yeah" than having all the pressure of being the one everything is riding on. Nobody blames the back up singer when the show sucks. But since I can't really sing, it doesn't really matter.

You are funny.

When I have to wait for-eeeeeevahhhhhh at the doctor's, I alternate between rage and sleep. It is just how I am.

I know what you mean about Peanut. Goldie gets so completely zonked out of her mind with joy when she has her head in a shrub, looking for whatever she is looking for...I just can't stop her because I feel guilty about making her quit.

24-hour Matlock station? LOL!

You're my favorite blog of the day!

My Dr's office told me point blank that they schedule people 15 minutes before they think they will actually see them. Beautiful.

I would like the spa-ish stuff, but from my HMO it's not likely. Unless you count a paper robe as "spa wear".

Reese's blizzard for me.
Smooth thighs are overrated.
What's that knocking at my door?
Summer? Shorts? Tank tops?

flutter said...

nevermind the wait, the 24 hour Matlock station would have made me aggro, too.

Courtney said...

Mmmm... Blizzards. Turtle Blizzard. Kit Kat Blizzard... I need to go to Dairy Queen.

Jay said...

Dairy Queen ruined my life in the opposite direction - 2 years ago they removed reese's pieces from their blizzard flavours. It was the only one I liked.

I still check the menu of every dq i pass.

Strawberry cheesecake blizzard.

I always take a book with me to any medical appointment, knowing the waiting is such a big part of it.

The dental clinic I go to is always busy ~ and that one bothers me. There are people with screaming kids, people with cell phones, et cetera. That bothers me ~ because I can't read in all that racket! :)

My weakness is cheeseburgers.

I LOVE Oreo Cookie Blizzards. Just the mention of them makes my mouth water.

To the hot chick with a tambourine in a slutty outfit and some hooker boots,

I love this post. You are adorable.

I lost control at the store tonight and bought a coconut cake. Mmmmm. I can hear the cellulite cells assembling outside my door now, waiting to jump my thighs at the first bite.

Laurie said...

I'm so glad you are feeling better. And heartsin is right, you are adorable and entirely too funny!

I feel ya on the last paragraph. I always say: Invite me to the picnic and I'll bring something you love. Don't make me organize it because I'd rather sit back and think about what I might have done better--plus, I'd screw up the organizing bit anyhow.

Hel said...

I loved this post. It made me feel happy.

It is freezing here so I am feeling ok about sipping a sweet chai tea while I chomp on honey covered cashews. My thighs will be seen by no-one but Flo (whose eyes never stray too far past my chest)parts.

My dogs look so blissed out while they chomp on their bones. Their eyes pull back and they look like they are smiling and chewing at the same time.

Alex (the cat who owns me) went to his vet today. He did not complain about the wait, only about the trip there. Once he was in the vet’s office he was too frightened to make a sound.

That's one clever little Yvonne said...

I'm sure you'd do plenty well just standing there looking cute and humming.

Sometimes the back up singers are better than the lead though and can steal all the spotlight. I'd like to be one of those :)-

Those photos of Peanut are *hilarious*. Such joy, indeed!
