DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL

It seems to be that way at this time of year, literally and figuratively--the time after Christmas, especially between Christmas and New Year. I started a job December 30th, 2001 on a Sunday morning--the worst possible shift. But I stayed there for more than seven years.

I GOOGLED BEE POLLEN

And came up with beef stew.

"WHAT WAS I THINKING?"

WEEK

Dow closed over 16 thousand, another record I think. Weather was bitterly cold, ended pleasantly.

WHAT THE FUCK WERE YOU THINKING, WMATA?

Zoo Lights + Construction = Fail. You are the reason people drink and drive. 

CANE MUTINY

Some of these sound revolting: http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304465604579221943029447818

GO TO JAIL

Go directly to jail. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.00

An hour and forty minutes in the oral surgeon's office and he can't pull the tooth. This after three weeks. All this for nothing, could have slept. .And still as thirsty as a fish, waiting for my blood work results. If I end up in the ER with an infection let the sin be on their heads.

A TREE GROWS IN ADMO

Bought a giant economy size bottle of tea tree oil. Because the last thing I need to do is get sick:

NO ONE EVER SAID...

"I'm dreaming of a weird Christmas." This one was weird, but better than last--did not end up with screaming, tears, stolen bags etc. 


A VERY ADMO CHRISTMAS

Exchanged gifts with bar tenders and greetings with the tattoo parlour guy. I buy so much from the Botanica they gave ME a gift. 

THE DAY AFTER

Was late in getting the tree up, but will probably be late getting it down, too:

THE MOST ORIGINAL HOLIDAY GREETING YET:

Christmas is a coming
And the geese are getting fat
Please to put a dollar in Mr. Lomax' hat
If you haven't got a dollar, your spare change will probably do
But if you have no change to spare, then a "MOTHERFUCK!" to you!

PRAYER REQUEST

Please pray for me--I may have another chance to save my condo. If I do, it would be a Christmas miracle.
 

IT TAKES A WOMAN...

OLD SCHOOL

Wow, apparently the cartoons with which I grew up are old school: 


THINK I NEED A GINGER ALE

Chugging huge amounts of the stuff, really craving it and can't figure out why, as I am not nauseous. Maybe it's the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5f1TKLywtok 

At least it will help the 24-hour urine. 


MERRY PISSMAS

Doing a 24 hour urine, dropping it off before mass. So festive. I don't think any normal person likes them. Doctors hate ordering them, patients hate doing them and I can't imagining anyone enjoying processing them.

AMERICA'S MOST INSULTING

I thought the most insulting thing you could say to a patient was "it's all in your head," but I was wrong. It's "you'll just have to accept it." And then there's "it can be controlled by diet and exercise." I walk so much I broke a bone in my foot, dumbass.

Dow closed up over 16 thousand, hit a record high this week. Weather ended unseasonably warm. I think I saw a sign saying gas was $3.40/gallon. Since none of the doctors I’m going to are available or helpful, I’m treating myself with vitamins, essential oils, etc. If I end up in the ER with a lavender overdose, let the sin be on their heads.

I RULE

S sent this email to almost a dozen people, including Frodo: 

Thanks to Jane’s early warning about the missing Rush Update last night we took a look and found the Enco “EN-ININT” machine was down and would not boot properly.

Thanks $1,000,000 to Mike, the machine has a repaired graphics card and appears to be working properly again. Who knows, maybe the old card had been close to the edge before, causing the previous freeze incidents of that box.

IN THE SPIRIT OF THE HOLIDAYS

Met some bi-polar acting guy at the PO who told me he spoke four languages. I told him if he spoke English to speak it correctly. I refrained to tell him to bite me in at least five.

Dow closed under 16 thousand, gas was $3.67/gallon at the Sunoco station on Harvard St. Weather mostly unseasonably bitterly cold, but at least it gets dark one minute later every day. Trying to stay healthy, the rheumatologist said there’s not much he can do while the foot is still healing. Seeing the endo next week, hope to get some answers, don’t want to be this fat.

PAIN

A little kid on the train looked at my crutches and said "I'm sorry you got hurt." I wanted to explain to him that there are much more painful things than breaking a bone. I also refrained from telling him "this is what happens when you don't drink your milk/eat your vegetables.

CRUTCHES SUCK

But there are other things that suck more:


  • Being told everything's "just nerves" or "all in your head" sucks.

  • Being accused of faking an illness or medical condition to get attention sucks.

  • Having to go to work or school when you're sick sucks. Not being able to home sucks, too. 

  • Having your mom say "aw, come on, Janey, you're not that sick" sucks.

SCRATCH THAT

Make that six. I get fitted for a walking boot.

DAY

So far five medical appointments in one week. Can't beat that with a stick. B says  "I
 hope all those doctors can put you back together again."

RENDEZVOUS LOUNGE VICTIM DIES

See http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/case-ruled-a-homicide-after-man-hurt-trying-to-subdue-patron-at-adams-morgan-bar-dies/2013/09/21/19d2cd60-22de-11e3-b73c-aab60bf735d0_story.html

Only reason I wasn't there was because my foot was hurting. 

WEEK

Navy Yard shootings are the big thing in the news. Ironically, one of G's friends said something about getting me a job there years ago. Weather was beautiful but nasty tonight. Foot is swollen like a balloon, thinking the pain meds are messing with my head.

BLURRED LINES

I wanna get nasty, but am conflicted about it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyDUC1LUXSU

DAY

Ok, I'm gonna say it. Broken bones are not contagious. I will not infect you with anything, I am not gonna bite you, sexually molest you,  or hit you with a crutch and I certainly can't chase you unless you're REALLY slow.  Some of you who were really sweet after the robbery now are pretending nothing happened. There is nothing  for you or me to feel embarrassed about--I do not have cancer or any other horrible incurable disease, I was not driving drunk or high, I was not in a bar fight and I was not raped. It's ok to ask, it's the awkward looks I can do without. And yes, I realize I ended a sentence with a preposition.

WENT AHEAD, MADE HIS DAY

Went to Chipotle in Columbia Heights, was inwardly grousing about the line, the wait time, the crowdedness, the fact that customers had to clean their own tables, the fact that some teenagers were sitting there after finishing their meal and the general ghetto-ness of the peeps there. Was thinking of complaining to corporate until the manager looked at me and said "this lady made my day." I couldn't imagine why until he told me a woman before me came in with a cane, demanded to get to the front of the line and threatened to complain to corporate. After that he and his staff treated me like a princess...

DAY

Last night I told a guy about being to embarrassed to ask T to carry me when my foot was hurting. He said he envisioned him carrying me like Kevin Costner carrying Whitney Houston in The Bodyguard: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JWTaaS7LdU

WAITING TO EXHALE

Loved the part in which Lela Rochon refers to her date as a "human submarine sandwich." Ironically, his name is Michael.

Sometimes being out of love is better than being in it.
