The Laptop Is Back!

It works and I am all set up for MidRats in a few minutes.

Of course, we've lost the element of portability.  I can't close it because the hinges are broke.  But that's fine.  I am just so happy to have it back, I don't care.

So,I got an email from someone who wants to do a guest post.  I think it’s a great idea, so you’ll see that soon.

Still Posting From The Smaahht Phone

Between the tiny keys and my tremor - it ain't easy!

The sun has just come out.....too late swim.  Bummer.

I've been thinking a lot about the summer of 2008.  That's when I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma.  July was the month that I learned about MM and the difference between IgA, IgG, IgM and the others.  July was the month I was telling people.

I am sitting here in the 18th of my "18 to 24 month remission" reading my July, 2008 posts On July 19, 2008 I posted about the books I was reading and the books I had no time for.  I joked that I would get to "Guns, Germs and Steel" in 2012.  Lol!  It's in the other room!  Finally I met a deadline.

Of course I said that believing I wouldn't be here four years into it.  But I am.

Blueberries.... Bananas..... Apples

What would you like in/on your pancakes?

Oh, I can't choose!

I made all of them and we ate till we couldn't eat anymore.

Now I have to get ready for the beach.  High tide is 2:23.  Hope the bathing still fits after this morning's pancake extravaganza!

We Were Cooking With Gas!

The gas tank on the grill was empty and I was sad.  You see, I have no car.  How would I get more gas?  But there was a full one by the lawnmower.  We were saved!

There were ribs and marinated chicken strips and stuff!

Tomorrow there will be steaks and sausage and burgers.


"I'll Have 'On The Beach' For $200, Please"

What is "A great Gregory Peck movie"?

What is "A book I have to read"?

What is "Me?"

It is beautiful here today. I am roasting in the warm New England summer.....basting myself with Coppertone.....and it's not a high number.

 I have friends coming to stay.  I hope they're hungry, because I bought a ridiculous amount of food.

Miss Me?

Yeah, I haven't been here. I still haven't gotten my hands on my laptop yet so no blogging. But lots of tweeting!! Soon I will be down the cottage and I will have the laptop.

In the meantime I'm still having adventures. Tomorrow I'm going to a social media event hosted by @MGraham969. That's right, I am headed over to WTKK to meet Michael Graham for the second time.

He won't remember the first. We were at a protest against Harvard hosting former Iranian president Khatami.

Tomorrow's event will feature NRO's Jonah Goldberg.

Sorry there are no links but this is the Droid.

Had A Problem At The Pharmacy Today

It actually started yesterday. You see, I have to plan out my days. For example, I knew last Friday was going to be strenuous, so napped that day. So in planning for the 4th of July, I scheduled my errands for Monday. That would leave Tuesday for laying around conserving energy for Wednesday. But it didn't work out for me. You see after I ran all my errands, I took the train to Haymarket. I was trying to get off the crowded car through two jackasses (jackassi?) who were standing too close to the doors. People behind me were starting to push. Picture someone squeezing a tube of toothpaste. One of my bags caught on "doorway guy" luggage pulling me back while the crowd surged forward. Tbe result? I can within an inch of kissing the floor of platform and the contents of the bag stayed on the train. I hope someone enjoys that stupid Fekkia shampoo I felt guilty about buying because it was so expensive. I also lost two prescriptions. So, even though I was tired, I had to go back to the pharmacy today. I got there around half past four. Two hours later, after my team had left, the pharmacist decided he couldn't fill it. I was upset. I asked why they hadn't come up with this know when people who could help were still available Astonishingly enough, all three of the pharmacy workers left started giving excuses. I have never come across such behavior at the hospital. I was incredulous! I put up my hand. "I don't want to hear any more." One of the three kept talking. I was flabbergasted! "Do you understand what 'I don't want to hear any more' means?" She kept talking. So I said "I guess you don't." She kept talking. I asked "Do you always have to have the last word?" "Yes, ma'am" she replied. Then, miracle of miracles, someone called the hematology oncologist on call. The pharrmacist gave him the story and in one second got approval. I hope that woman enjoyed taunting me as I cried in frustration and exhaustion because Thursday I start making phone calls. Miss Smartie Pants is going to find out who she fucked with.
