another bulleted list of travails and woes ...

I think my godson took this picture of me after I'd had a few alcoholic beverages ... why else would I have such a beatific smile upon my mug considering all the sickness and pain I've been dealing with since Friday? LOL ... the little guy is good at taking pictures ... he lined up all his plastic guns, one at a time, and took photos of that ... LOL

Update on the tidings of woe and despair:

• The flu/sinus infection thing isn't as bad as it was over the weekend ... but my head's still cloudy.

• I am experiencing a very bad case of 'roid rage. Don't inquire further. Please. I beg of you.

• I tweaked my neck after just 15 minutes at work, and it's been achey and hurting in that dull ache kind of way — until I turn or lift my head, then it becomes short, stabbing, shooting pains.

• I paid off last year's taxes, including $130 in penalties and interests. Ugh. But I did manage to file the extension for THIS year. Whew!!

• I still owe taxes for this year and gotta pay 'em sometime. Bleah.

• Wrote checks for rent, power and water. The bank account is feeling a bit light, and will until NEXT Friday. No poker, no paid-for golf, no extraneous expenses — like the $5 coffees — this week.

• My No. 2's last day before vacation was today. Next two weeks = hell on Earth.

SLIVERS OF SUNSHINE
• Got to go home early today because I wasn't feeling well. Small thing, but nice.

• Both my bosses are back, which is actually refreshing.

• I bought those Country Crock side dishes and tried out the garlic mashed potatoes for dinner tonight — it rocked!! I can't wait to try out the mac and cheese.

My Favorite Person has ordered me an online game, Neverwinter Nights, the second such game she's bestowed upon me. The last one resurrected my gaming addiction, and this one is sure to add to it a bit. But in a good way. Heh.

• I just finished watching "The Wedding Singer." Fun movie. :)

Bleah. Back to reality.

Random Guam Fact Of The Day:
• Two major Guam rock formations are named after animals — Bear Rock, in Inarajan, and Camel Rock, which sits offshore in Asan.

Glad to read you are starting to feel better...I bet if you had GONE to the dr instead of just blogging about it, you would feel much better ! Okay enough of the digs ~w~ about your habitual procrastinating.

Question - why is it Guam has statues of panthers, bear rock and camel rock when none of these animals lived / lives there? Is the Belvedere related to the Belvedere in NYC? So with Lent being over....no $5 coffees also means you have to wait another week for the strip clubs?

As for the game...do they really make games for macs?? Can you play online with pc gamers or are you stuck only socializing with other mac users? You do know that pc's are not the problem...it's microcrap that is the problem!

DZER said...

Maybe I should see a blogdoctor? heh

LeoPalace has statues of leopards because their logo is the leopard. And the rock formations were named by white people who'd seen camels and bears :P

and yes ... strip club is on hold

and mac daddies can play some games online with pc players ... and the new macs are powered by pentium ... sure sign on the apocalypes is the fact that the new Macs can run Windows XP ... yipe

Glad the head is better, sorry about the neck, LOL...sounds insincere, but it's not, I promise!!

Yeah, we've gone through a bit of things around here and the ole' bank account has lost a bit of weight. But, it's all good.

Wedding Singer was cute, but Murphs right, Wedding Crashers is great! Can't believe you've not seen it. DO!!

So, were those steROIDS, or hemorRIODS? Just curious.

The pics are adorable. I think they show the real you. I like them.

JMai said...

That is the cutest picture of you that I've seen yet. The 2d one is good too but that first one... you look like you're posing for your 2d grade picture.

Too cute!

I won't ask about the roids. And I won't listen if you try to tell me.
