Gave up on Kathy Griffin – too much frenetic energy for me. Now catching up on The Daily Show. Can’t really focus, though. Wonder why?
More from La’s blog (November 2005):
Unfortunately, I did manage to throw up right before leaving my house. Ugh. And, though my leg felt a bit better yesterday, it was reeeally painful today. Why? Well, you see, my body spun the Wheel of Pain (patent pending) and the winner of the moment is my left leg! I mean, now that the radiation has alleviated my lower back pain, it’s only fair that another body part should get a turn!
She had such problems with the barfing, bless her heart. She had to race out of class, out of tests, out of Wegman’s parking lot to take care of business. I used to be TERRIFIED of barfing. Until I had gastric bypass surgery in 1997 and spent a year learning how much I could eat without tipping the scale (as it were) over to “uh oh”. I finally got over my fear of my own barfing but still had some weird left over fears of other people barfing in front of me. It took my beloved goddaughter to help me get past that issue. Although I suspect that it was really more about my desire to take care of her that overrode the fear (because that’s what it was) of vomiting. Duty has barfed only once in our 6 years together and he was the noisiest damn barfer! I think one needs to be aware of the noise issue and try to barf quietly. That’s what I do. Shouldn’t everyone?
(I have gone insane, I’m pretty sure)
