Some people are dumb.

So, remember the whole car crashing through my backyard thing last October?  Well I’ve been summoned to testify against dumb guy.  I really try not to use the word dumb to describe people, but man, this guy’s kind of dumb.  Forget for a minute that he crashed a very expensive BMW trying to do a high school driving maneuver.  And that he ran from the scene.  And left his personal cell phone behind.  Now he failed to show up for court today so there’s an arrest warrant out for the guy.  And now I have to put my life on hold for a day, make sure I don’t have any doctor’s appointments, any scans, any anything, and find babysitting at a moment’s notice, just so I can come to court and tell the jury how dumb this guy is.  Ugh.


More than meets the eye.

I put Transformers at the top of our Netflix cue thinking we’d be getting this movie…

Apparently when you type in Transformer: the Movie, you get this…

Talk about nostalgia.  Heh.  I used to watch it with my little brother.  And check out who did the voices.  Orson Welles?  Too funny.  There’s actually a point in the film where a robot voiced by Eric Idle encourages the other Autobots to dance around a fire to “Dare to be Stupid.”  Really.  I’m not making this up.

Random Things

Ok.  Does anyone else think this looks like a flower boob?

I was in King Soopers this week (ok.  Every day.  Am I the only one that ends up at the grocery store every frickin’ day?)  And I saw this.

They’re on sale too.   I am grateful for any money that goes towards a cure, but MAN, some of the things that are “pink” amaze me.  Awareness is important, but I think some retailers just slap a ribbon on random products that aren’t selling.  I half expect to see a pink ribbon on last week’s potato rolls.  I’m beginning to think I missed a holiday somewhere because there is this “pink” aisle between the Halloween stuff and the Christmas stuff.  Apparently we’re skipping Thanksgiving this year…

Radiation update: I misunderstood.  I don’t get the scar boost until the end of treatment unless my skin starts coming off or something.  🙂  They just do the simulation early in case they need to switch stuff around.

Cancer cannot have me.

Somebody over at the YSC posted this link and I thought it was pretty powerful.

BTW, forgot the Friday Feel Up again.  So do it today.

Good stuff.

Found this on Knitting in the Shadows.  I’m so guilty of this, you know?  🙂


How many of us are afraid that appearing intelligent will make us look bad?  Kind of screwed up if you think about it.

Ob la di

I have to write this down before I forget.  L has been singing the Beatles all evening.

Orazi Oraza O lasagna, La la la la life goes on.

Hee hee hee.

And just so it’s stuck in your head too…

Hangin’ with the Yarn Thing

Marly came by Wednesday afternoon and made me go to the Apex Center with her.   Heh.  It was a real arm twister.  Not to work out or anything.  Just hang and knit while our kids acted like a bunch of crazy monkeys in the play area.  Now what she doesn’t know is why it took me so long to get to the car.  I lost my foob.  I’ve gotten in the habit of taking it off as soon as I get home and leaving it in strange places.  I had the kids all ready to go in the car and couldn’t find my foob.  Today I found it in the snack basket.  That day I think it was on my laptop.  Apparently I need a lo-jack for my foob.  Anyway, the kids had a great time and Marly gave me these for my crocs!

Also for use in your knits!

Radiation, halfway done

This is in the radiation waiting room.  Love it.

This is in the radiation waiting room. Love it.

Radiation is still going well.  I’ve been told to expect some fatigue but it hasn’t shown up yet.  I do have a lovely pink rectangle though.  It reminds of a PBS shape song L has been singing lately.  🙂  (Bear with me, it’s just the way my mind rolls.)  Starting next week, I get what’s called a boost.  Right now I get radiation pretty much all over my upper left torso, but next week they’re going to concentrate on my scar area.  That’s where my cancer is most likely to recur.  The boost will also give the rest of my skin a break, giving it a chance to heal before the home stretch when we go back to irradiating the left side again.   Other than the pink rectangle, the only discomfort I’ve had is when skin touches skin.  Like where my armpit touches my side.  It’s uncomfortable and almost feels like it sticks together, but still nothing like some of the sunburns I’ve had in my life.  Here’s to hoping it won’t be.  🙂

Ode to Sawyer

Lisa left me this link in the comments and it made me laugh.  Awesome.

LOST (insert noise that plays with the cliff hanger)

I watched the first 4 episodes of Season 1 on Sci Fi last night.  It’s so long until it’s on again.  Until then, I found a link to Sawyer’s Nick Name generator.  He’s so pretty.   Apparently, he would call me “Skeletor”.  Hmm.  See some flaws in the generator.

Sawyer’s Nick Name Generator

BTW, for those of you that were wondering…

I graduated in ’92.  Seems a million years ago.
