More brain farts....

  • Just about everyone east of the Mississippi has been getting rained on in the last few days because of Lee – that is one big ass storm.
  • I threw my back out this weekend – well that’s not true – I didn’t do a damn thing and yet, my back is out.  I wish a had a good story to go with this, but alas I do not.
  • I drank a tremendous amount of gin and tonics and wine this weekend… is it related to the bullet above??? Perhaps?
  • I have been reading Angela's Repair and Renovation blog from the beginning and well 1st  of all, I’m in love.  And 2nd of all – I think she’s been spending some time in my brain.  She's learned, or at least seems to have a handle on all the same kinds of things I'm still working through - but the way she talks about those things is the same exact way I think about them - it was lovely and inspiring to read - and I'm not done yet!
  •  My son, Ted.. well, I worry about that boy...  It's a damn good thing he's cute (as I tell him all the damn time).  Bless his heart, but he has the common sense of a pencil eraser.  I guess it's a good thing he's book smart too, otherwise there would just be no damn hope.
  • I'm fairly sure I'm never going to lose another pound again and I'm just going to have to learn to live with my disappointment.  Okay, perhaps it's that I need to work up to disappointment - I watch what I'm doing and it's just not good - choice wise in the food department - and I just keep doing it anyway.  Keep doing what you've always done and you'll keep getting what you've always gotten.  I believe I need a very small fill - like .1cc - but my doctor won't give fill less than .5cc and I'm sure I wouldn't be able to swallow my own spit with that size fill.  So I need to get off this very well padded ass and do something about it.
  • There's a FillCenter USA about 45 minutes from my house - is there anyone out there with experience with them??? Will they give small fills?? Will they actually listen to the patient's wishes and thoughts, or at least take them into account??
  • I made homemade egg noodles tonight, (thanks Camille) and while they were too salty, I'd give myself a solid B+ for my first attempt.  You cook them in chicken stock and eat it sort of as a stew - think dumplings sort of - wow - yum!

I love Angie too - she's so freaking cute.

Thank god, Lee left off her first name (Sandy) or I'd be in deep doo doo in Chicago. That absolutely sucks that you cannot get less than a 0.5 cc fill. I only get 0.1 cc each time and can get easily overfilled with that little amount. You do need a fill. But wait until after Chicago.

And just so you know, Gilly does not have an accent. She sounds like me and I don't either. All of you guys do though :-)

You are crazy! I thought you were kidding when you said you were reading my whole blog. Now I know it was the alcohol. :) Can't wait to hug your neck in Chicago.

First off, why is your surgeon such a moron? Second, what is a homemade egg noodle? Like, as in pasta, or something more band-friendly? Last, you always make me LOL.

Angela is very motivating. I read her entire blog too. I wish I could have half the success she has had. I'm hoping Chicago will be just the kick in the butt I need to get this weight off.

Annie said...

Read, as always you crack me up! I agree on both counts- Angie is amazing, and a total inspiration, and Gilly, is well, who has the words to describe her fabulousness?? I envy you on your opportunity in Chi town!

I use fill centers USA and since the DR I use has fluoro he will do whatever size I need of fill or unfill. I have had nothing but great experiences with my clinic in OK and I like that if I move and have to go to another Fill Center USA Clinic all my info goes too.

That's nonsense that your surgeon won't give a fill under 0.5 cc's. Someone needs to kick his ass, that's just bad business.
