But first, the quiz o-dah-day:


What Your Black Umbrella Says About You



When faced with adversity, you respond with authority. You don't let problems faze you.

You are naturally powerful and commanding. People look to you to take charge.



You are elegant and classy. You know how to always say and do the right thing.

While you stand out, you also fit it. You thrive in a variety of situations.



On a rainy day: you carry on as normal - a little bad weather isn't going to get in your way!



I had something to say about yesterday, but I've totally forgotten. Greaaaaaat. It's that old-timer's thang.

Didn't get any sleep last night and lo and behold! The reason why is dumbfounding...I'm surfin' the freakin' crimson (TMI, I know, but a fact of life). I thought that was all over.

I'm TOTALLY DIFFERENT now that I'm off the evil medication. So much happier and optimistic. It's about time. My life was going nowhere fast on morphine. I'm glad I talked my doctor into taking me off of it.

Oh, I know! THANK GOD FOR COSTCO. My patch costs $400, name brand (+). Generic, $270 at least. And even then, it's almost impossible to find the Sandoz generic around here, since everybody carries that Mylan crap that doesn't work. Enter the totally unknown to me (until now) Costco. $170. For Sandoz. OMG. They didn't even make me sign up for membership. She just told me to cruise on back there and take care of it, which is what I did. It's still unGodly expensive, but I've found a decent price on it. I wanna be a member.

I should bullet this, since it's not really an update but a list of crap going on. I've lost a good 15 lbs. in the past 2.5 weeks. Yay. All that fasting and food-detoxing REALLY paid off. I'm back comfortable in my clothes, and all is well in the world. Sorta. As much as it can be.

Today, I had to go through hell. However, my teeth haven't been this straight and white since I first got my braces off at the age of 16. They reverted back to the above pic until today, when I had them fix-ed. Yays. But the asshole dentist almost killed me in the process. Not only did the gas not work but he used a 5 gauge needle in the ROOF OF MY MOUTH, WHICH STUCK INSIDE MY BRAIN. I SCREAMED. No kidding. It hurt /that bad/. And he had the nerve to tell me to calm down?!?!?!? OH NO HE DI-NT. He then asked me to put my hands at my side. He must-a been reading my mind because I damn sure wanted to knock out a few of his teeth. No joke. It wouldn't be the first dentist I've hit. :> I'm just glad it's all over until I get one more filling. And I'm not going THERE. Dante envisioned it when he envisioned hell. I have no doubt about it. All that was missing were the poodles.

Now, I'm chilling and trying to remember what all I've NOT journaled. I've been grossly negligent to myself by not keeping up with this. The shame and horror! Anyway, now that I can see three dimensional again, I promise I'll read and try to update. That should address e-mail and messages I've gotten in the past couple of days. I do have a new laptop, but will be getting the other one fixed ASAP. This one is all shiny and happy looking. :D I will be participating in NANO this year, so I've gotta have equipment, every bit as much as the spawnlette needed those purple Converse.

The Spawnlette is another story entirely, and could get legal, so I'm not going into detail.

My brother and I finally spoke. It surprised me to be happy to talk to him. We were supposed to meet for lunch this weekend but I was wicked sick to my stomach. Soooon.


And no, I really don't care if we all have differing political views, FYI.

ADD much? Heh.

The end.

did you at least get a lollipop after visiting herr doktor's chamber of horrors?

poodles in hell! LOL! they are vicious little cusses, aren't they?

see, now that you got the uber-pooter, you will have to do the Nano thing... i'm sure you could knock out 3K words a day in fifteen minutes. start off with a thinly veiled account of the giggler and you'll be on your way. i have no idea what i'm gonna write about this year, maybe we should come up with a story idea and write our own takes on it?

i wondered how many emails/replies you got asking why you didn't put your earlier entry behind a cut? hey, at least it was something of substance and not a bunch of larry king-esque twitter statements.

We should do some collaborative work. Sounds like funz! :>

NO ONE SAID SHEIZE, PER MY USERINFO INSTRUCTIONS. If they don't like it, they can most hastily remove me from their lists. I almost put it behind a cut, but as you know was busy and on my way out (twice today, no less). Still - my journal, my rules :)

So...I've already decided to participate, but I thought ya only had to do 1,000 words a day. Eeep! 3,000 is a feature story with a sidebar and photos. lol :)

We'll brainstorm about content. Have you come up with any rough ideas thinking about it?

to be honest, other than the potential of us sharing out a story idea, i've got nothing, nada, zip, bupkiss. i'm sure once october rolls around i'll have some ideas rattling around... all i know is i want to try something a bit different.

Will you be in school in November? I'd like to do this together! That would be a very cool idea.

Hm. I dunno. I envision you actually being around so we can use all the coffee shops at bookstores and get outta this environment to one surrounded with great books :D

Well, I do have those long weekends that I'd be available. Wow, could you imagine talking to me while I'm hyped up on caffeine?

Wow, 15 pounds - that's great! I'll bet you look fab!

I hate dentists. If I met the girl of my dreams and she was a dentist, I'd still be single.

have the storms hit you guys much?

Once I make a decision, that's IT. lol :) I'm now in the toning process and still want to lose about 5 more lbs (if not 10). I did gain a bit so you know. I love my wardrobe. Hahahaha.

We have had some storms, but only good ones that were needed. Nothing major.

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
