Wow, if I still have readers...Thank you. I have been awful lately and I really do apologise, I know that I have said this before but I meant it then and I mean it now. I have been miserable and that has oozed itself onto my blog and into the Man’s poor life so here we go, I would like to publicly apologise to everyone for being a nightmare. I might be in pain and be down but that can’t be helped right now, guess when I was up there with the Big Man I should have played a better hand at cards cause I am telling you, the ones I got suck. If anyone plays ‘Shit Head’ I am holding the 7 and I can’t get rid of it.
I got a phone call from a new friend today, I was introduced to her by my Uncle P and she also suffers with this horrible disease. Today I was reminded of how I first started this fight a few weeks ago, I was strong and determined and I want to get that back. The Monster can’t beat me, I have the love and friendship of so many people that I can not wallow in my own self pity like I have been. I need to learn everything I can about this problem and fight smart, learn to adapt whenever is needed.
I don’t have many smart remarks or wise cracks to share with you tonight, oh actually maybe one. Has anyone ever noticed how unhelpful doctor receptionists are? I have never met such miserable group of receptionist in my life, I thought the whole point of a receptionist was to meet and greet and organise the daily planner, along with a whole heap of other tasks I am sure. I would love to be in their interviews, do they especially look for people who have no compassion for others and hate sick people? Do they ask questions like If someone is in desperate need to see a doctor would you a) assist them and give them the closet appointment b) ask them a load of pointless unnecessary questions until they hang up c) ignore the phone. Obviously the correct answer to this particular question would be firstly answer c, but if they were short of candidates I am sure either answers b or c would do.
Oh man now I am on a roll he he he! Bet your looking forward to this. Ever noticed that there are some people out there doing jobs that honestly, they shouldn’t be. The other day I had to tell the man in the Bagel stand, how to make a Bagel. Now this might be my bad but surely if you have a job in a place called ‘Bagel Factory’ you might have some idea on how to make a Bagel. Think again this dude had no idea, I practically had to draw out instructions on a napkin. I always have fun ordering coffee as well, let me ask you, does this sound like a confusing order? ‘Please can I have a black coffee, with a small amount of hazelnut syrup and some cold milk on the side’. Does anyone mistake that for being a Latte? You are probably thinking, No Jess that does not sound like a Latte don’t be silly, that sounds like a Black coffee with some syrup and some cold milk. You would be right in your thoughts there and I tell you what...you don’t even make coffee for a living. Amazing huh, how us novices can understand that but someone who is employed to make coffee and is paid to do so can not understand that. It does make me giggle.
As you can probably tell I am going for my ‘Cantankerous Old Lady Badge’ well before I am due it but I have always thought that I should strive for the biggest goal and we are all headed that way anyway so I might as well have a head start.
Anyway i am going to sign off and go and enjoy an episode of Fringe, telling you if you have not seen it do so, it is brilliant (geeky but brilliant).
Love to you all xxxxx
