Aimless Ramblings

You know when you just can't think of a title for these things?? I don't know what the theme will be yet, so maybe the title will have to come later. It's pouring rain here today and just as dismal as yesterday. I have beat my record from yesterday though - its noon and I am out of my pjs for almost 2 hours. I still plan to clean, but I'm not sure if that will happen.

I went to the doctor today to get med refills and my 6mo check up. The doctor took one look at me and said "How are your moods lately? And financial or relationship stress?" (Apparently, I am wearing a sign. I thought I looked okay.) Then he told me not to worry, I still had at least 25 years of fertility left and he was pretty sure the next time he saw me I wouldn't be able to keep my pants up any more. (He's quite impressed with the weight loss.) He's a very nice man for a doctor and I left the office much happier than when I went in.

However, I noticed something when I was there. I would like to be able to go up to people and say "Honey, if you don't want people to think you're a moron, you can't say things like that in public." Some people... they just freak me out. I was so embarassed to listen to this one mother-son duo that I could hardly sit there. It was just sad. And then, as they are leaving she loudly announced to the receptionist that her son wants to date her. ACK. This kid was 17!! I would have DIED if my Mom had done that to me. But he was fine and thought it was funny. Still, I wanted to drop kick her down a flight of stairs on his behalf, but that just might be me.


  1. My parents NEVER tried to set me up. Tells you what they think about me, I guess.

  2. Maybe you weren't so desperate your Mom felt she needed to? And really, you haven't done too poorly for yourself, have you? Or do you secretly need your parents help??

    That was a lot of question marks.

  3. I would have drop kicked my mom, had she ever tried something like that to me.

  4. I never gave the appearance of desperate, but they should have probably at least tried for a few years in there - just to try and figure out if I was gay or not. And I have done well for myself - thanks! I think when you add extra question marks, it's like under the hot lamp like a police investigation. Whatever, it's late.

  5. I always feel bad when I use too many question marks - like I'm interrogating. But I'm not. Really. Well, not in a mean "You're going down" sort of way.


Crap monkies say "what?"
