Bullets Over Bedhead

I've been working on a post for a week now and I've managed to type and delete the same few paragraphs about 87 times. So I'm doing a bullet post in an effort to keep at least one regular reader of this blog. We shall see how that works out.

  • I am going to BlogHer. I bought the plane ticket and the event pass, so it's official. Of course, I might not even have a blog by then if I can't kick myself in the ass and actually write, but I'm still going. I'll be the one clutching a beer and rocking and muttering to myself in the corner.
  • It's snowing. Again. I am so fucking sick of this weather. And yeah, I know, I chose to live in New England and it's better than having wildfires and tornadoes and hurricanes and huge-ass bugs, but still. Enough already.
  • My skin looks like the Sahara dessert right now. My fingers are cracking and bleeding without any provocation and my shins resemble an alligator.
  • I'm re-reading Twilight for book group this Friday. We're having a vampire-themed food thing - anyone have any suggestions for what to bring? The hostess (Hi, AM) is already doing bloody Marys.
  • I finally have health insurance again and my lovely new GP gave me a five week supply of Cymbalta. Yippee for the happy pills.
  • On the downside, the new insurance doesn't cover O's current endo at Joslin and she's not happy about it. I can try to appeal, but there are two other endo groups they do cover, so I'm not hopeful.
  • We all have The Crud over here - sneezing and coughing and generally being miserable. We seem to be passing it back and forth and it sucks and I'm sick of it.
  • The little old lady across the street from me has more energy than I think I've ever had in my life. She's already out there shoveling. Of course, it looks like she cuts her yard with a ruler and nail scissors, so I think she may be a little anal. Still, she's nice and she doesn't mind my barking dog, so it's all good.
And I think that's it.

Oh, except for this: This little fellow makes me smile every time I watch him.


I think it may have something to do with the crush I had on Fred Savage back in the day....

Sorry about the snow and the crud. It's been here too.
Glad that you posted again! I was wondering how you've been doing.

Hugs!!

A sunny spot on the horizon...

Lisa said...

YEAH for going on your trip!

Ideas for the vampire theme ...
What about a white chocolate fondue with red food coloring in the chocolate; it'll be like your dipping the fruit, etc in blood ... muahawha!

Oh ... BTW- I LOVE Oswald too!

You're going? Great! Looking forward to meeting you. We're throwing a big party Thursday night (The People's Prty, free drinks, swag etc). Hope to see you there. Oh and I love Oswald. I love the whole show, actually. More than my kids even. Feel better!

Yeah - you're coming to BlogHer! Can't wait to meet you.

And we have Oswald on at the moment here - which is why I get two seconds to read a few blogs!!

I have a feeling that after BlogHer your going to have a ton of things to write about. Not that your adventures in the New England snow aren't fascinating...

Traceytreasure said...

I have an award for you. Pick it up on the GEM blog!

Hugs!!

I love Oswald, too! I like that Henry the penguin is voiced by Squiggy from Laverne & Shirley, and that the cityscape is so surreal. My 3yo gets all excited about the funny-shaped houses. And it's just so good-natured & sweet. Love it!

Have fun at BlogHer--you deserve it!
