Hi Poppy! & OMG I’m Sick AGAIN.

Everybody, welcome Poppy! She compared her daughter to a pack of bloodhounds, fantastic! Anybody that can maintain a sense of humor while their flesh and blood is dying of pneumonia is cool in my book. She’s also the director of a barber shop quartet of crying baptized babies, woohoo!

Ok, so I feel bad invading Poppy’s post with my whining, but I figured it was better to put it below her post than make a new one and then have her not be on top. Because when I’m sick, me and my whining is important dammit!

So Monday I woke up feeling a little icky. I get dressed, I go to the bathroom to brush my teeth, and then puke. YAY FUN! I hate puking. Though, there was nothing in my stomach so it was like throwing up spit. Whatever. I brush my teeth, come to work.. 30 minutes later I can’t breathe and the room is spinning. So I think “… OKAY I think it’s time to go back home.” Drive home.. the second I walk in the door I run to the bathroom and throw up some more spit and then bile. YAY MORE FUN! *ugh* So I call the doctor and the nurse leaves me on hold until I just hang up the phone and pass out.

The nurse calls me back a few hours later and I tell her about the puking and the dizziness and how my legs kept getting tingly and she said to go to the after hours clinic that night. Ok. So I go back to sleep and at like, 4 or something I go to the doctor. They take my temperature, no real fever at the time. Talk to the doctor, she seems fairly confused. Pulls up my record to see what they already looked for (oh, I didn’t mention, this is something I go through every few weeks). They made me pee in a cup and took my blood (I hate needles, it hurt and I have a little hole in my arm), I guess my regular doctor took all her ideas. So they gave me an antacid and some little white pill for the nausea and sent me home.

I woke up yesterday morning and my throat felt like sandpaper. Joy! So I left a message with my boss with what little is left of my raspy voice and go back to sleep. Bought some Chloraseptic when I was conscious again.. GOOD LORD THAT STUFF IS AWFUL. Jeff grabs the bottle and is like, “HERE! I’ll spray it for you” and I choked on the stuff. Cherry flavored Novocain or something. It only works for half an hour and I keep spraying my tongue instead of my throat.

Today my throat feels less like sandpaper but it’s swollen. It hurts to touch it. I know I should go back to the doctor but man, I WAS JUST THERE. That’d be another $15 and more medicine.

Speaking of medicine, the ones they gave me are kicking my ass. The antacid makes me really dizzy (well.. not so much dizzy as I space out and when I zone back to reality my head is spinning) and the little anti-nausea pill (I took one this morning cause I was feeling like throwing up again) makes me crazy drowsy.. like Benadryll x1000.

Somebody please shoot me. Then go visit Poppy.



100 Facts in 100 Days – Fact 029/035

They’re a little late. I’ve been sick :(

29: I’m pretty musically inclined. I get it from my dad. I can pick up just about any instrument and have the basics down by the end of the day. Except brass.. for some reason, I never did get the hang of that. My lips get tingly.

30: When I was a kid, my hair was so long, I’d sit on it if I didn’t remember to move it out of the way before I sat.

31: I never told my mom I didn’t believe in Santa Claus. I still get presants from him at Christmas time :D

32: Any time I go to Denny’s without Sonia, I hate the place.

33: I have a belt made completely out of starburst wrappers and 2 safety pins.

34: I’m pretty obsessive over patterns. Any time I have a bunch of similar things on a flat surface, I have this need to put them in some sort of group, or an order.

35: I’ve never ever been to Raging Waters and I don’t think I ever will. Water parks are gross :|


Friday’s Feast – 111 – Week 6

Join me in Friday’s Feast!

Appetizer:What was the very last song you listened to?
Third Eye Blind – Jumper :music:
I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend. You could cut ties with all the lies that you’ve been living in. And if you do not want to see me again I would understand, I would understand

Soup: What is one company/store/corporation you would recommend that people stay away from?
Meh. Nobody has really wronged me enough for me to tell people not to go there. I mean, most places I’ve been have done SOMETHING to annoy me, but it’s usually a pretty isolated incident. I do tell people not to go to Island’s with more than 4 people though if they want to be out of there in a resonable amount of time. Every single time I’ve gone with a big group we’ve had many problems.

Salad: On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how much do you enjoy having your picture made?
I’m assuming this means having my picture taken? I guess about a 6. I generally prefer to be on the other side of the camera.

Main Course: Besides a bookmark, what is something you’ve used to keep your place in a book?
I like to use my bills hahaha. Once I used a ticket that I refused to pay (I had gotten 2; one for an expired meter and one cause my front plate fell off. I sent them a letter saying I wasn’t paying the one for the plate because I had the stupid thing in my window because it had fallen off that day and I never heard back. Didn’t have any problems when I went to register the car again so I assume that means the ticket ceased to exist haha). I actually can’t remember the last time I used a real bookmark.

Dessert: Name a food that you like that most people don’t.
I loooooooove peanut butter and banana sandwiches. Most people think I’m crazy.


AFI = Teh Awesomeness


So last night Sonia and I went to see AFI. We missed Saosin cause we were hungry, got there in time to see Tiger Army. I don’t like them, but whatever. I was impressed with how well they got the crowd moving until I realized a band had been on before them, so then I wasn’t as impressed. If the first band gets that kind of energy, then it’s be something special.

Sooo then we waited for AFI and it was way cool. All the equipment and their clothes is white, and they have these white trees with pink and purple lights and Davey has the exact pink eyeshadow I’ve been looking for and I must know where he got it.

They played the songs I needed them to play except for 1, but that’s ok.

OMG Katie did you SEE when Davey stepped off the stage and everybody held his feet like he was God?!”
“Sonia, at his own shows, he probably IS God!”

Good times were had, except for the fact that the same huge guy kept stepping on my toe because he’s an idiot and doesn’t know how to keep his feet on the ground. I think my toe is broken or something. AND I saw the guy I totally need to marry, it’s too bad I’ll never see him again. Bands are easy to stalk but random hot guys with curly hair and killer hip bones are not, and I am deeply saddened.

Check the moblog for a couple pictures and a tiny video clip.

That is all.

People are Stupid & PHP Hates Me

BERLIN (Reuters) – A bungling German thief stole a pair of shoes in two different sizes and was caught when he went back to the shop to fix his mistake—decked out in the very clothes he had stolen, authorities said Friday.

Police in the western city of Bielefeld said the shop owner recognized the 20-year-old shoplifter because the white shoes and sports jacket he wore were available only in his shop, and had been stolen just two days earlier.

“You have to wonder why he went back into the shop in the stolen get-up,” said a spokeswoman for Bielefeld police. “It seems he may not have been the brightest of thieves.” The owner spotted the man as he attempted to switch of the wrong-sized shoe and alerted police, who arrested the thief.


ROFL. Classic. WHY would you DO that?!

In other news, the guys at pmachine helped me figure out why my auto-resize on KSF To-Go wasn’t working. Apparently my version of PHP doesn’t like the jpgs that my Nokia phone makes. WTF? I might have to go back to Motorolla in that case cause Py says upgrading the php would break more than it would fix. So according to John and PXLated, when I go shopping for my new cellphone, I should ask the sales person if the model he is selling me is compatible with my version of PHP, videotape his reaction, put it on youtube, get digged and be famous. Sounds good to me! :D Though I do wish it would just work with my phone!
