well, i just received a call from my doctor's office reminding me not to eat for 12 hours before my phyiscal tomorrow morning so that my blood sugars are baseline. i'm so scared, peepz. i haven't ever had a physical! i haven't ever had blood taken! how terrifying is that!? i know you're all like, "wtf how does one not get a physical or blood taken in their nearly 24 years on this planet?" well simply put, i have really shitty parents who never took me to the doctors as a kid and i never had health insurance as an adult.
of course i've been tested for venereal diseases... i know that is 2nd on your list of WTFs. there are ways to do that at the gynos that doesn't involve needles in arms(although it is the quickest way to get results, obviously i opted against it in the past because i'm skerred).
so, tomorrow i'm having my blood taken for the 1st time ever (in my recolection)! i'm so freakin' scared i could pass out.
tell me some good (not horrifying) stories about physicals, plz.
this afternoon at work, my boss paid for lunch for the whole office. so i got a pretty pricey (but not too wonderful) chicken caesar salad. it was good for what i paid for it, though ($0!!!).
after lunch, i came back to my desk to find a 2lb box of gourmet cookies sitting there with a note from my coworker annette! so now i have these delicious cookies that i absolutely luuuurve.
tonight for dinner, i took a stab at making crab cakes. my recipe was great and i made the crab cakes with the best consistancy everrrr. BUT, mike bought indonesian (WTF) backfin crabmeat instead of whole lump, so it tasted more fishy than i'm used to. plus, the lumps of meat were small and stringy. but, it was wonderful regardless. next time he'll know the difference between the cheap stuff and the eh-ok stuff.
mike is on the phone with his father and apparently at the end of october we're gonna fly out to austin, tx for his friend's wedding on his father's expense. this is the most fabulous news.
i'm not feeling so hot. ugh. apparently last night i kept mike up by coughing all night. i don't remember coughing a lot because i took nyquil and it knocked my ass out (but apparently didn't soothe my sore throat). well, i do remember having mike say, "you're staying home from work tomorrow." and i was like, "no!" i can't miss work! it's not like school... i'm being paid to be here. i need money for bills. mike missed a whole week of work last week because of his fractured shinbone. so i know his brother (who just so happens to be his boss) is not going to give him anything for those missed days. even though mike hurt himself on the job. *sigh*
my doctor's appointment is on friday, so i'm hoping i can stick this illness out until then. then all weekend, i'll try to recuperate.
what else? nothing.
- ...guess at what normal is.
...have difficulty in following a project through from beginning to end.
...lie when it would be just as easy to tell the truth.
...judge themselves without mercy.
...have difficulty having fun.
...take themselves very seriously.
...have difficulty with intimate relationships.
...overreact to changes over which they have no control.
...constantly seek approval and affirmation.
...feel that they are different from other people.
...are either super responsible or super irresponsible.
...are extremely loyal, even in the face of evidence that loyalty is undeserved.
...tend to lock themselves into a course of action without giving serious consideration to alternative behaviors or possible consequences. This impulsivity leads to confusion, self loathing, and loss of control of their environment. As a result, they spend tremendous amounts of time cleaning up the mess.
maybe i'm just crazy.
or lumpy and short.
