Rumours Of My Demise… Yadda, Yadda, Yadda

Wednesday, February 27th, 2008

So it looks like this ol’ gal ain’t about to croak…anytime soon, at least.

The doc did his usual thing and everything from my blood pressure to my heartbeat appears normal. The good doc that he is, however, is concerned about just why an otherwise healthy personage such as myself would up and faint in such an inexplicable way.

As a result, in less than a month, yours truly will get to experience the joys of an echocardiogram, stress test and ultrasound. Until then, should I feel the urge to impersonate Scarlett again, I am to head to the hospital.

Ah. Ain’t life grand? LOL

ps. for those who might be speculating, you’d be better off focusing on the stock market. There is no chance of a Starr Junior. Capisce? :D

Ah Do Declayah!

So I did something today I’ve never, ever done before — I pulled a Scarlett O’Hara at the gym … and fainted.

Not to worry, Gentle Readers, your Hostess with the Mostess is feeling okay. Thankfully, Mr. Hot Stuff P.T. was right there through it all, overwhelmingly concerned.

No easily discernible idea why it happened; could have been a bit of a fluke. However, Yours Truly is off to see the doctor on Wednesday — if, for nothing else, than to make sure this episode is documented and on record. That way, it can be referred to in the future, if necessary.

But I gotta tell ya — it was one weird experience. Even though the unconscious part lasted perhaps all of five or ten seconds, it felt like I’d been out for hours. And I’m certain I dreamed something, too, though I can’t remember what that was.

In the meantime, I’m going to lay off the corsets. Who wants an 18-inch waist, anyway? :D

Are You EFFIN’ Kidding Me??

I just wrote a post with my answer to Dr. Hoffman’s meme… and when I went to click on “Publish”, Wordpress crashed.

^^%$QW@ #$! @%6@$%@$%@ ^@$ %^#%&!!!!!!!!!!

I’ll redo it later. Sorry, Doug. I’m too cheesed at the moment. :P

Gentlemen Prefer…?

Further Distraction

Friday, February 22nd, 2008

Continuing along the similar vein of having nothing new to talk about, I present a fun video sent to me — a group prank in NYC’s Grand Central Station. (No worries, completely safe for work!)

Enjoy! And TGIF!!

…to you, Gentle Readers. I’m certain the Blog has been about as exciting as tapioca pudding lately (though you’ve all been entirely too polite to point that out), and there have been a number of reasons for that. Health issues are forefront in Yours Truly’s consciousness, and that sort of thing — not to mention the overwhelming minutiae of day-to-day living — makes for dull blogging.

Independent wealth holds a great deal of appeal at the moment (doesn’t it to everyone?!?)…too bad one can’t just snap one’s fingers and make it happen, huh?

Anyway. I am forever grateful for your continued presence here (even if most of you say nothing!) and thanks for being patient. Hilarity and hijinks shall ensue before long.

Of course they will. Look who you’re talking to! :)

ps. Mega-congrats to L & M and T & S on the new bebes! All this reproduction! Can you imagine?!? 

Aging Is A Crapshoot

Wednesday, February 20th, 2008

Please tell me it’s not just me.

I seem to spend more time nowadays thinking that there was something important I was supposed to do, but I can’t remember just what that was.

Or at the other end of the spectrum, I remember what it was at the most inopportune and/or inconvenient time.

Like last night. I was just about to shut down the computer and head for bed (being after 10:30 PM and all) when I remembered I’d wanted to dig up a certain piece of paper from somewhere in my files. *sigh* There was no way I was going to start digging at that point — not when I didn’t have a clue as to where that paper was — so that task was going to have to be relegated to tonight, instead.

It’s a good thing it’s not extremely urgent. *insert rolling of eyeballs here*

What about you? Anything in particular that you’ve noticed is becoming prevalent as the years pass…?

Yeah, That’d Be About Right

Good Intentions

Sunday, February 17th, 2008

For the last couple of days I’ve been trying to put together a certain blog post (and not ignoring you, Gentle Readers, as I’m sure you’ve all been thinking…) and fate just hasn’t been working in my favour.

So this particular post is going to have to wait a day or two (and it’ll all be old news by then…), and I’m just going to be a li’l ole tease and not give you any more than that.

Sound good? Works for me. :D

Anyhoo. In case you’ve not noticed, may I direct your attention to the word meter in the sidebar? Yep — the thing moved, folks. :) Okay, I know, not by much, but it did move. I’m a-workin’ on it, I promise.

But for now, I’m heading for the warmth of my heated mattress pad, where I can lie and listen to the freezing rain splatter against the window. :P Yick. Good thing tomorrow’s a holiday for us in Ontario — the roads are going to be hellish!

Ciao, gang!

Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind?

Friday, February 15th, 2008

When I sat down at the computer tonight and looked at the clock, I realized I had approximately an hour to myself before I had to head for bed.

I had a choice. I could a)write a blog entry or b)work on the WiP.

I worked on the WiP. Hence the boring entry you’re reading right now.

Sorry for that, but I thought you’d like to see that progress bar move! (I do, too!)

Ciao for now, folks! :)
