Livers & Gizzards

Ok so... I have this little mass thingie on my liver. They are going
to do surgery on Thursday (laparoscopically) and take a sample of
it and a bunch of samples of my liver which they think the doctors
may have damaged by giving me too much iron. Ha! Wouldn't it
be WAY more fucking fun to damage your liver with too much al-
cohol? Anyway, its all too complicated and more importantly, BOR-
ING to go into - the medical minutieu of it, but the long and short
of it is that I'm having surgery Thursday.

I have this HUMONGOUS list of shit to get done before then and
Dylan is currently working on the first one, which is painting the
shed door in our back yard. (Get this, our insurance company said
that the door to our fucking POTTING shed. Our potting shed -
where we store PLANTS AND DIRT - which is and always has
been natural wood - has to painted. I said, why? They said, we're
afraid that rain could get in through the wood and damage con-
tents in the shed. I said, there is nothing in the shed. It's a pot-
ting shed. Notice how its NEXT TO THE FLOWER GARDEN?

They said, well, we'll drop your homeowners policy if you don't
paint it. Now mind you, I have never made a claim on my home-
owners policy. Not now, and not in the three years I had my old
place. What the fuck? But anyway, the insurance is cheap so we
are painting the FUCKING SHED DOOR.

Then there is the toilet. Right. Still not fixed. But obviously I
can't climb up and down the fucking stairs after surgery. So...
Gotta get that done. Right. Looking for a plumber now. Time
to call in the pros.

And then work. Oy vey. Seriously, work is fantastic. People
have just been handing me orders while nobody else is selling.
Which is a gift. Truly. It makes me look like a worthwhile em-
ployee since I'm making a lot of money for the company while
I'm having to take medical leave. So I am so grateful. And I can
hopefully pay my boss back for sticking by me last year when I
lost so much money.

So Dylan is home, work is great and my house is kinda sorta clean.
Life is good. :)

It even comes with its own little carrying case and battery
backup. I got one the other day to match my - ALSO
NEW - Nokia 6682 Smart Phone.

Very Cool. That is all.

The Man of My Dreams

I may have met the man of my dreams. For the first time in my
life I was talking to this guy and he actually got excited about com-
paring different cell phones with me. Tech geek heaven here I


So I'm watching a series of Monk shows on USA Network and all I
SCHRAMM. She was as much a star of the show as Tony Shaloub.

The new girl is cute but she can't hold a candle to Bitty. It's just
not the same. I mean, Tony still puts in the same great perfor-
mance as Adrian Monk, but without Bitty Schramm the show will
never be as multi-faceted as it once was. They should have paid
her that little bit extra she wanted and have done with it. Oh
yeah, I forgot. Women aren't worth the extra money. Whatever.
I don't tune in like I used to anymore USA. So Congratulations on
THAT decision making process.

And as for the rest of you...
