Ogre The Top
I’m experimenting with my fat hand. I had a few days where I had no swelling. I had knuckles, even. I thought it had something to do with the fact that on those days, I was taking steroids for the chemo. But this morning I woke, wondering if it had anything to do with the fact that around that same time, I was aspartame free. So I did me a little checking and found this web page about the 92 side effects of aspartame. And on that list, out of alphabetical order was “edema”. The fact that it was not in alphabetical order, like the rest of the list, was a sign that I needed to take heed and experiment.
I’ll keep you posted!
I want a Diet Coke so bad.
I ran some errands yesterday. I didn’t want to. I’m sick of running around with a stupid cap on my stupid bald head. And the answer is not to run around bald because I’m not in the mood to not make eye contact with people, which is what you have to do when you’re running around as a bald-headed woman – not make eye contact with people who are not making eye contact with you. It’s just off kilter.
But I got over my sorry self and ran out to pick up needful things, including a new bottle of nail polish that I didn’t even know I needed. A color I would have never purchased before the stupid cancer but now that my life has totally changed, I figured, “what the hell” and went for it.
Did you know that OPI has a series of Shrek-inspired nail polish?
Here, on my gloved hand is Ogre-The-Top.
I figured that my hand looks ridiculous with this ugly glove so why not add blue nail polish (a color that I love, but not for fingernails).
I actually like it!
Did you notice that my nails didn’t fall off?
The Big Nugget forced me to go to a movie yesterday.
Nugget: Want to go to a movie?
Nugget: Toy Story 3?
Me: I don’t think I saw 2
Nugget: I’m pretty sure you don’t have to see 2 in order for 3 to make sense.
Me: I don’t want to go to a movie. I’m doing stuff.
Nugget: What are you doing?
Me: I’m watching t.v. and cutting out [grocery store] coupons.
Nugget: Get Him to the Greek is showing at 1 theatre within 10 miles.
It was your typical Judd Apatow kind of stupid movie. And I loved it. Laughed hard several times. Russell Brand is hysterical!
Alright then. Time to go figure out what to do to stop jonesing Diet Coke.
