Someone is very cabin-feverish in this house. Maybe more than one someone, but Minerva is the only one with crazy eyes. So far. This post is just a relatively boring midwinter hunkering update. SK and I were in Florida at Disney World two weeks ago for our honeymoon, and it was hilariously different from the… Continue reading Greetings from FFS Minerva
Warning: this story has some reference to medical testing, needles, swearing and foolishness. If any of that bothers you please skip this post. One of the weirder side effects of breast cancer survivorship is the medical community's response to anything that they deem "weird". Before I was ever diagnosed, I had a weird soft lump… Continue reading A Comedy of Errors and Bad Veins
Warning: contains naked cat belly. It's just an evening bath. Nothing to see here. It's FINE. We're all fine. NO I'M NOT WEARING PANTS. Don't you people keep saying pants are bullshit in this house? (To Butterfle): WHY ARE YOU LAUGHING? BRING ME SOLO AND THE WOOKIE! You all suck. There's no privacy here at… Continue reading A Feline Drama in 4 Parts
Mom reminded me this morning that a year ago was my last day of radiation, so today's officially my first anniversary of finishing treatment. Apparently I was more excited about chemo ending, since I did NOT have today in my own calendar. But it'll be nice to enjoy July without radiation burns in my armpit… Continue reading One Year Out
I haven't been around much since the holidays. To be fair, I haven't been around much in real life, either. But since people are starting to ask, I thought I'd give an update (because honestly, I'm fucking tired and I don't respond to most calls or texts or messages with anything but "ok" right now).… Continue reading Round 3 – Naps and Emergency Rooms and Where’s My Bubble.
So, it's easier to just put this into a blog post than repeat things over and over for peeps who don't know yet. I haven't been around much the past few weeks for writing or anything else (other than horror movies and related distractions) because I'm in the middle of a thing.It turns out, finding… Continue reading An Unexpected Unpleasant Side Quest
A long time ago in a suburb not so far away from where I live now, I had a weird secret admirer leave me a mystery: and that's when Russell Crowe showed up in my grandparents' mailbox. It's now been nearly 20 years and I still don't know who did it. Last week I got home from… Continue reading Of Course My Secret Admirers Are Weird
Today's Spamalicious Hump Day offerings from Yahoo include eight offers of various sorts of encounter with chicks I don't know. I deleted two of them for offering explicit acts...not because I'm a prude: because I probably don't want people finding my blog as a search result for them. Sigh. Also, can I just say, Stiffler was 1999.… Continue reading It Must Be Wednesday – Yahoo Thinks I’m a Rich Frat Boy
This isn't a real post. It's not even a Star Wars post. Mostly because I'm still not really up to writing a lot yet. But I did have a WTF moment, so: Yesterday I found a news headline warning Canadians NOT to try to shove the moose licking their cars, because 1000lb moose can be...fussy...about being… Continue reading Not The Theme I Was Looking For This Week
I think I need a do-over for the past couple of months.A mulligan.A reboot.I haven't written anything real since August. I haven't even really done any decent blog posts; my current journal has gathered more dust than ink lately; the book isn't done.The book isn't done.The motherfucking book isn't done. Sigh.I had every intention of… Continue reading This post is nothing but random crap and makes no sense.
