Hi, how are you?

I am doing better. I figure that passing a kidney stone will be the only thing to surpass the pain I was going through on Thursday night, save some kind of horrendous accident involving fire and Brillo pads. Seriously though, it was not fun and I also came in contact with something that my already weak immune system was trying to fight. My doctor said that if my temperature got to 100.5 F that I was to go into the ER pronto. From Thursday into Saturday I monitored my temperature every two hours. It got to 100 but nothing higher, so my weak immune system prevailed. The bone pain was caused from a bad reaction to the changed schedule and increased dosage of the Nuepogen injections I receive. The chemo is bad enough.

So, what else? Um, well, I saw "Bee Movie" and got a kick out of it. I wanted to see "American Gangster" but I just missed the starting time. It's funny that I initially went to see a very graphic film and ended up seeing a good kid's movie. Hey, that's what I'm all about: serendipity.

I had a black and white cat cross the road in front of me today. I thought about this for a minute. What does this mean, mediocre luck? I think so, and if it is a pure white cat then it means good luck. I then wondered about all the other colors of cats. I came up with this: You will consume bad Chinese food in the near future. I think I am on to something here.

There is nothing good on TV right now. This really pisses me off because I'm in the mood for Bonanza or some shit. Maybe that one dude "Bear" on the Discovery channel is making sweet love to a moss covered rock right now. That would be good TV.

Why can't there be a marriage between Chinese opera and barbecue joints? I'm so tired of the blues cliche that they all seem to adopt in those BB-Q pits. There's nothing more I'd like than to be having a beef brisket and some Chinese man dressed as a woman shouting at me in a high pitched tone. I live in a very different world from the rest of you all, I suppose.

Alright, I am going to check the tube for sexy, moss covered rocks in heat. Hasta!

Well, that sets my dreamscape for the night! And all this time, I thought it was my own subconscious taking me for a ride.

Happy to hear you're feeling a little bit better, Grunty... and am horrified to hear that you went through that... up for a phone call sometime soon?

Love Pinky GT

Good luck with the search fer the proper TV program. You obviously need something to numb yer mind cuz the drugs don't seem to be working.

Stay Stompish.

I am surprised that you didn't just go for Phantasm again. By the way, guess what movie I am renting this week?

Yes, later this week. It can't be tonight because I have the downloaded Dexter episode I missed last night! ;)

Glad you're better and didn't have to take a trip to the ER. :)

Glad that you were able to keep 0.5 degrees outta the ER.

Were there lots of funny Bee puns in Bee Movie like "Let's bee friends"?

I recommend "The Real World: Sydney" plenty of sexy moss-covered rocks in heat. Close enough :)

The Grunt said...

Pinky~ Sounds good to me.

Scary~ My mind is too cracked to go numb.

O-Girl~ Awesome! As a fellow horror flick freak, you'll dig Phantasm. It's just quirky in that horror way.

Christielli~ There were a lot of "bee" puns. I think you'd like it.

Sun~ I used to watch Real World all the time. I haven't kept up, though.

I have a completely black cat. Every time he passes me it is good luck, as long as he does not have gas.
