Off

So today I am off to San Jose for 3 days with Krys. We are going to geek out at the Golden Gate Ren Faire. There will be many photos posted upon my return.

While I am gone, Sailor Boy is landscaping my backyard. I feel bed he is doing it without my help. I would help if I were going to be here.

So Yay! for visiting Krys. and YAYYAYYAYAYAYYAYAYAYYAY for returning home to a backyard with actual grass and sprinklers. You know, just in time for the end of summer.

Sailor Boy came back from Chicago with some awful sickness-- and now I have it.

Sailor Boy has fabulous insurance through the Navy and has been given antibiotics just this side of Cipro and is already better.

I have stupid self employed insurance and am not yet better.

I have decided to self medicate with alcohol. Rum and Cokes to be exact since they clearly are the next best thing to Cipro. Plus with two of those in my system I am still fully functioning but the yawning raw open wound that is the back of my throat is now fully anesthetized.

I think what I really have is this cool disease from the Middle Ages called "the dread scrofula."

When I was a little girl my father always used to call any illness the dread scrofula. I of course, along with the singsong way I spell my last name, picked this habit up.

My mother, medical transcription extroidinaire, once described to me what a scrofula is. And here for your viewing pleasure, compliments of the geniuses of google, is the definition. ( Can I say how much I love google? I would have google's child if I could. They should make a movie about a woman who gets pregnant by computer code. STOP geeking out Michelle!)

Wish me better health, or buy me more rum.

Missing Fizzy Fuzzy Big and Buzzy

Steve! leaves for New York on the 14th-ish of this month. His lease is signed and his car will be packed and he's taking a piece of my heart with him. I got so lucky to have him as a friend this past year that I am very very sad he is leaving, even though he is getting a great opportunity. Staten Island, New York and Wagner College; you better be damn good to Steve! or I will have to get all up in your grill.
