Friday Confessions.

Hello. It’s been a week. Yes, it has.


I kind of resent the people who moved in upstairs. They spend a lot of time on the back porch (who wouldn’t, it’s gorgeous!) but now I sort of feel that my private haven of gnomes and weeds has overseers.


I have been watching a lot of crap tv. And you know what? That is its own punishment. Last night I watched some show about some Bridezilla who was the whiniest, most obsessive, spendthrift, irrational bitch I have ever seen. If I were her guy, I would have dumped her. If I were a friend of his, I would have roofie’d him and left him in the changing room at a strip club, just to ensure that he left the bitch. She wanted a signature drink for her wedding fer chrissakes! Her tiara cost more than 500 bucks! This show gave me heartburn, so I changed over to CSI.


Also, yesterday on the bus, I almost threw up on the woman in the seat next to me. She was carrying a banana skin and chatting on her phone. Yeah. it was hot yesterday. And the banana’s sickly sweet stench assaulted my nostrils such that I really almost hurled on a total stranger. Besides, with garbage cans at every bus stop, what was she doing carrying a banana skin around?


Harumph. Over to you.

    1) It’s ridiculous how excited I got when I heard there is a new ‘cycle’ of Project Runway starting up. How is it that a person with no cable can watch so much T.V? Oh yes…..the power of the internets.
    2) I’ve been sitting on my ass watching T.V. when I should be figuring out where I should put my books in my new pad. How much do you want to bet that they’ll still be sitting on my staircase in boxes 6 months from now?
    3) I really don’t want to work because finding work is too much frickin’ work.

    Every time I think about packing, I do something else instead.

    I got my Eye Ewe Dee taken out because we think it’s the thing that’s been making me sick and nuts and bloated.

    My doc is is fabulous and very very busy and therefore somewhat scattered. He doesn’t usually do gyno, either, so we were both a little surprised that the removal went so smoothly. (We’d ventured in like this: Him: “I could refer you.” Me: “Okay!” Him: “Although I could try.” Me: “Cervical adventures ahoy!”)

    So not-usually-a-gyno managed to get hold of the sucker, and then pulled it out with his forceps. Didn’t hurt, btw, which shocked me. Badda boom. He then stood up, (triumphant!), looking as if he’d learned to use chopsticks and had proudly fetched a slippery snowpea. Which is when he realized that he had no sterile container to put it in.

    So off went my IUD - fresh from my uterus – and my doctor, into the REAL world, in search of a sterile pee cup.

    Cracked me up. I have no shame.

    I am very happy that it’s gone, and I lost 3 pounds of water within the first 12 hours. Can you believe?

    BTW: In case I was not clear, I was thrilled not to have to wait for the gyno.

    Deb, work is hard. Internet TV is easy. It’s just like that.
    Els, packing is boring! I’d be doing something else as well. Like anything.
    Arwen, YAY for your adventurous MD!

    9ok well first I just failed the captcha and lost the comment i painstakingly typed with one hand.
    second i love arwen’s story and i am wondering what sort of iud it was that caused problems…am assuming the hormonal mirena?

    my computer died today and I was so stuck for something mindless to do during naptime (BOTH KIDS AT ONCE OMG) that i watched crash test mommy god have mercy on my soul.

    also am hating hugh’s computer though glad i have vsomething to surf on so shouldn’t cfomplain.

    Yes with the mirena, fairy of cheese. Which made me hormonal and sad for 3 months, and then I forgot about it, and when I complained to my mom “a lot of these symptoms are like I’m pregnant”, she suggested that maybe the pregnancy hormones were doing it. You know. Like that.

    Why did they give you the hormonal IUD if you get migraines? I have the plain copper coathanger, and it’s specifically BECAUSE they wanted me away from the extra hormones. The doctor and Scott ganged up on me (doc provided statistics, Scott did the math) and demonstrated that I had a 1% chance of having a stroke in the next ten years, or something appalling like that.

    Of course, MY original beef in wanting off the pill was the killer PMS. And the killer PMS, I still get in spades. And that’s my confession: Friday, I was ready to murder my son and divorce my husband. And I knew it was the ovaries talking, but Jesus Christ it was touch and go there for a while….

    Cheesefairy, I am finding some of the captas are hard. They end with, like, half an a or something. I don’t know how to type half an a.
    Rachel, the ovaries can be louder than reason sometimes. It’s tough.

    I wasn’t getting migraines before the hormonal IUD. Headaches, yes. Migraines, no.
