I'm 50!!??!!

THAT is the weirdest damn thing to really wrap your own head around.


I'll be.


why does it have to be a sad night?

First, the sad, sad news about the Burgess family and the loss of their son.  

Then, I got an e-mail from my friend Karen's husband.  Karen, you may recall, is my friend in Maryland who was diagnosed Christmas 2006 with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.  They caught it in time and just she was in remission a whole month when it came back, a cancerous tumor in her face.  My husband and I went to vist her in September.  In December, she was going back to the hospital for a stem cell replacement.  They were going to harvest her healthy stem cells, give her a "chemo blast" (an extremely heavy duty blast) to kill all the cells, and then replant the healthy cells.

Dammit, dammit, dammit.

This is the part I hate about living far away; I can't go to visit her in the hospital.  I can't be there for her.  We've been friends 20 years this summer and I wish I could do something.

Mostly, I wish to God she were healthy again.

Right now, the tears won't come.  They're there, but they won't come out.

They found me a picture of Shiner Bock Beer! AND my MK products! THAT rocks.
Not to mention TSO AND my Johnny Lee Middleton. The shih tzu looks just like my Pippin.

It's weird to see your mind in photos . . .

My eldest dog is in her end times. She's 13 1/2, and small dogs only live between 13 and 16 years generally. The poor old thing is blind, has a perpetual cough just like an old person, and can't get on the furniture by herself anymore. Plus the old gal has to "go" several times a day now.

But she's always really glad to "see" me. She knows me and my husband still and is lying at my feet right now as I write this. Just like always.

One good thing is even though she's fairly blind (not 100% but close to it), she can still get around the entire house and yard fairly well. Except at night.

It makes me sad to see her degenerating, but she's not even close to needing to be put down or anything. I do tell her all the time, though not to hang in there for me if she's miserable, that she should do whatever she needs to do and I will understand.

Call me crazy, but I believe animals understand. And my dogs are like my children, like them or not.

Anyway, I just needed to put this out there, even if just for myself

Oh WOW!!!

Ok, I am a HUGE FAN of the television show LOST. In fact, their message board was the last one I frequented (in lurk mode only) until TMS came into my life . . .

ANYWAY, I JUST SAW the extended commercial with all the scenes from the upcoming season!! OH.MY.GOD! I can hardly wait!!!!!!!!!

Any other Losties out there like me????


Um, it's DECEMBER, for crying out loud!!

WHY in the hell is there a tropical storm forming in the Atlantic????!!! Does it NOT know that hurricane season ended November 30???

That's all we effin need. A Christmas Day hurricane.

OMG, don't make me say anything irreverent . . .

why is it always about the nose with me?
