i'll start with the easy stuff...

...there's love stuff to discuss, but I'm not ready. Getting there though.

i think i've found the best doctor on earth...or at least the best doctor i've had in my 30 years. She's so great i'm afraid to pass the word, because I don't want to share her. so selfish of me. i think i love her. oh well, if anyone needs a primary care doc in NYC, let me know. see, not so selfish afterall.

I'd been self-diagnosing and self-treating my allergies, or what I thought were allergies, since early April. My eyes felt gritty and sore, and I wanted to do nothing but keep them closed with bags of ice on them. I wasn't myself. I was miserable, and miserable is not what you want to be when you've just settled into a new job and you want to put your best foot forward. The worry in my boss' eyes started to make me uncomfortable--so although I was already on several prescription meds for hay fever--Astelin, Nasonex, fexofenadine, Pataday, and Elestat--I bit the bullet, took the day off, found a doc two blocks from home, and went. Long story short, it's not all hay fever. I have a sinus infection and a bacterial eye infection. So, I'm antibioticked up, feeling better, and that's one less thing wearing on my mind and my body.

But there is stuff on my mind. I so want to get into that stuff...the hard stuff. But I'm gonna be patient. I refuse to write the story until I know how it's gonna end.

p.s. a big, warm xoxo for all my fellow bloggers who have said such kind things in the Comments :-)

p.p.s. at this very moment, I'm watching 16 Candles--best teenage movie ever. Or quite possibly, tied with Pretty in Pink. I love it, I love Molly. I love Anthony MH. I loooove Jake!! And I love how the 80s makes every teen seem sweaty and awkward with bad hair--as they should be. "Lemme borrow your underpants for ten minutes." I'm gonna download the soundtrack...

I hope you're well on the road to cold recovery. . . I quote "Sixteen Candles" on a daily basis.
"Oh sexy girlfriend!"
Here's a story to cheer your blues. . . last year my sister had hair extensions put in for a fashion show she walked in. She wore them until she couldn't stand them anymore but failed to find a hairdresser to take them out (read: too cheap to find a hairdresser to remove them). Instead she and her boyfriend got wasted and she passed him the scissors and he cut them out (and actually didn't do a horrible job). Then they proceeded to chase his cat with the hair before finally agreeing to tie the hair to random cars outside his house (pillars of maturity, those two). But I always compare that story to Caroline (Jake Ryan's girlfriend), when she gets her hair stuck in the door and her friend cuts it out for her. See! You're smiling now :)

I'm ashamed to admit that I've never seen that movie.

Chubbs said...

etoilee...yes, you definitely made me lol. thanx for the crazy visual.

rashad--you're doing yourself an awful dis-service, my friend. Buy it, rent it, netflix it. You're an 80s kid, right?

love love love 16 candles!! in my mind as a kid i was the black molly wingwald..pretty, eccentic, shy, witty and secretly the coolest kid in school. wait..im still that! :)

Chubbs said...

Yes, asabi--you are def one cool kid. But it's Molly Ringwald--not Molly Wingwald!! Unless you were switching the names on purpose...

I wanted to be Molly just so I could kiss Jake Ryan!!

And HOW gorge is jake ryan? even his name is hot. 16 candles is one of my favorite movies of all time.

asabi said...

no i didnt change it on purpose. i'm just retarded. a co-worker was actually saying something about "wings" when i wrote it and that's what came out. a mind is a terrible thing to waste.:(
